6:37 am
necessarily professionally p ll prepared for this warfare. many have been shot. the striker aircraft is in disarray. the danger is if now the rebels -- or according to ukrainians russian invaders -- go to mariupol and cut off the southern coast of the southern coast of territory of ukraine, this opens up absolutely unlimited opportunities for weapon supplies across the maritime border which ukrainian forces will not be capable of protecting. it will be completely uncontrollable. >> thank you very much. an audit of votes from afghanistan disputed presidential election has restarted without observers from either candidate's team. it's another setback after one of the two candidates abdullah abdullah said he would boy count

the count alleging widespread fraud. he said hundreds of thousands of ballots were wrongly cast for his rival. >> what sounds like another terrible tipping point for afghanistan in the pursuit of some sort of democratic process to work. >> reporter: it is. i was speaking to an aid close to mr. abdullah who said look the audit is a technical process is. we feel it was politically handled by the afghan government and by the election. he said mr. abdullah does not trust any one of those parties. this is the fifth time mr. abdullah has boycotted the audit. this is happening separately, mr. abdullah and aid are meeting
6:39 am
with mrthe camp the to put an e to this conflict. it's affected the morale of the security forces fighting large scale taliban attacks. let's not forget afghanistan minister told bbc last week he won't be able to pay salaries of employees in the next month. there's a lot at stake because of this election deadlock. elections were both for the international community and afghan government. now it seems that that very success is at risk. >> thanks very much indeed. bleak picture from kabul. >> west african health ministers meet in ghana to discuss how to prevent the deadly ebola outbreak from spreading across the region. the world health organization says the number of cases in all may reach 20,000.

6:41 am
month and then died from ebola. a man who came into contact with him rather than reporting to authorities. he got onto a plane and went to port harcourt and was treated by a doctor there. that whole medical treatment we understand was not relaid to the central ebola fighting team here. it was almost done in secret if if you'd like. the man recovered, but the doctor treating him has died. there are 70 people now being watched in port harcourt. we understand the doctors wife is also one of those being monitored. she's not well. it's a big set back because it's now moved outside the area. the kiosk is what happens next as far as containing it. i think what this demonstrates is the need for people not to hide away cases which of course has happened allot liberia,
6:42 am
sierra leone and guinea. half the people getting it are surviving. it's not a death sentence. people need to report early in a transparent manner. >> thanks very much will ross. stay with us here on bbc world news. still to come on the program, getting a hair cut. shaun the sheep has been sheered. will his fleece set a world record? we'll find out. we build it in classrooms and exhibit halls, mentoring tomorrow's innovators. we build it raising roofs, preserving habitats and serving america's veterans. every day, thousands of boeing volunteers help make their communities the best they can be. building something better for all of us. ♪ building something better for all of us. go on a first date. my passion is puppetry.

6:46 am
minorities and immigrants and children of immigrants. we have a lot in common. we should be stressing that. >> it's got to state of desperation with regard to gaza hasn't it? i suppose one of the elements about this is that we have differentiations we have to make looking at the palestinian situation. is that what you're doing here separating almost nationality from religion? >> this is looking at ourselves as representatives in uk and how we live in the the community here in the uk. we have a number of things which are common. there's more commonalities than differences between us. we want to make sure the problems does not get imported here as a problem. we need to maintain good
6:47 am
relationships. we generally have good relationships for the commonalitie commonalities. we want to reinforce and make sure we are not deflected on those issues. >> not being exported to a certain extent. i guess you say many in terms of antisemitic incidents in the uk that's on the rise. it's about stopping the export, trying to cut it off now. >> instead we want to export peace. that's the mantra here. we're not cutting off ourselves from the religion or national y nationality. i have a lot of family civilians living here. >> there's no condemnation of the government? >> absolutely not. in spite of of everything that's happened over the past few weeks? >> certainly not. it's not united. the muslim community has strong

6:49 am
we certainly agree that we disagree on certain things particularly in this particular conflict. we each have a right to take up positions and principles and do whatever is appropriate. in doing so, will there's no place for antisemitism. there's no place for islam phobia. there's no place for violence. that's what this is about to reinforce and reiterate and say that publicly. >> now here in britain, the news is being dominated by child abuse scandal in the north of england. for 16 years more than 1,400 children were sexually exploited. the revolutions about the crimes are shocking in violence as they are in scale. so is the authority's failure to respond to the needs of so many young and vulnerable people. one of the victims has been
