10:00 am
hello, you are watching gmt. i'm lucy hockings. our top story is ukraine's fragile cease-fire already on the brink of collapse? a fire ball in the sky over a key town as fighting intensifies. the leaders of russia ukraine and germany have been on the line to save the deal. christians killed in egypt. they are calling to confront the extremists. hope self-belief and a
10:01 am
pioneering new belief to get a man walking eight years after a taliban bomb shattered his body. >> i was in the paper. >> some program, erin is here as we talk about greece aaron? >> lucy another crisis meeting and missed opportunity. europe and greece cannot decide on what to do with all that debt. here is the problem. the train may be running out of track. europe says athens has until friday and if no deal is done then greece, you are on your own. welcome this day in london 7:00 a.m. in washington and 3:00
10:02 am
p.m. where continued clashes are undermining a cease-fire in eastern ukraine. government forces and pro-russian separatists have failed enduring weapons from the front line. germany said they have agreed to measures with russia and ukraine to keep the deal from collapsing. that means sending independent observers in. it is complicated right now. these are the grounds. orange is the rebel held territory. and the new agreement that withdrawal heavy weapons from the front line area wants to take place month. this would create a buffer zone of 50 to 140 kilometers. but, government troops are withdrawaling from the line while the rebels are going by the line of separation. most areas are quiet. as i mentioned, there is that quigt fighting happening that is quite
10:03 am
severe. there's been shelling at the donetsk airport. here is our reporter. >> reporter: in the bleak midwinter on europe's eastern border, ukraine's war continues. it's meant to be a cease-fire but around the embattled town there's little sign of anything approaching peace. they have been fought over for weeks. there are thousands of ukrainian government soldiers inside it a ring of rebel troops and hardware around it. weapons and soldiers circle the town. now, the railway station strategically important to the rebels is being fought over. street fighting has broken out. the war has claimed almost 5,500 lives. the cease-fire was supposed to
10:04 am
stop more bloodshed. it links the two cities they control. it's too tempting a target. the group that is supposed to be monitoring the cease-fire can only remind the two sides what they signed up to. >> the cease-fire should not be partial or half hearted or conditioned. but, it should be fully and comprehensively as the document says. >> reporter: to the south, little sign of any cease-fire. here government forces have been pushing at rebel lines for days. trying to drive the separatists away from another town across the front line both sides try to press home their advantage. outside the destruction continues, maybe an accident maybe a lucky shot for one side
10:05 am
or another. a cease-fire that never took hold is under impossible strain. tony diamond, bbc news. as you can see, dramatic pictures in from eastern ukraine. let's bring you up to date with the fight thag is going on at the moment. david stern is monitoring things from kiev. what is happening at the moment? there were reports of fighting particularly around the railway stations. >> reporter: exactly. we can't say exactly what is happening. it's a very dangerous place. a very tense place at the moment. we have heard from ukrainian government spokesman who says there is fighting going on around the train station. now he says the government forces are holding the train station. the rebels say they have taken the train station. what we obviously can say is the fighting shifting to within the city limits. obviously, very fierce fighting going on right now.
10:06 am
very tense situation right now and obviously, the question is how it will affect the cease-fire. is there a cease-fire and a peace plan to go back to at the moment? >> is there a chance david, that the monitors might be able to get in and start verifying what's happening there? >> reporter: difficult. as the fighting goes on they perhaps, are not going to be able to get as close as they would like. they have been stopped up to now, by the rebels. there's not a lot of hope perhaps for the city but they have other areas they are supposed to be observing. they are the main organization that is supposed to be monitoring this cease-fire and peace plan. we are also heard that the people's republic has started to withdraw their arms. we cannot confirm that. we might hear from the osce about whether or not this is
10:07 am
taking place. >> thank you for that. we'll put the questions to the osce, who we hope to talk to in a half hour's time. let's take you to moscow and join a political analyst known as voice of russia radio. thank you for being with us here on "gmt." why does russia not take the lead here given the cease-fire is in good faith. why not put pressure on the rebels and hope the fighting and heavy weapons can be withdrawn and we can see real change? >> i think, you know why should you say that russia is not taking the lead. russia has been urgent. they were founded on putin's suggestions of pulling back the heavy weapons from the front line. >> sorry to sbrerinterrupt.
10:08 am
we have fighting on both sides. why does the russian influence rebels not stop fighting as a sign of good faith? >> because the european union is 100% behind his troops. they also can meet crimes and there could be at least criticism from the west. both sides continue to simp size. for you to understand what's going on the rebels control 3% of the territory. this area as you can see from the map, it looks like a small peninsula, cutting the road between the big cities. the rebels say according to the agreement, this territory is theirs. ukrainian forces should have pulled back in september. this was from a report for international peace. you know it's experts wrote
10:09 am
that this area according to to agreement belongs to the rebels. that's the main problem. >> do you have hope the cease-fire will hold and continue to work or do you see it all falling apart? >> i have big hope and all the russian people want that fighting to stop. i think it's important that the bombardment of donetsk stops. the biggest were in donetsk where more than 1 million people live and were bombarded daily in the last month. >> mr. putin has few friends in europe but he's in hungary talking to them there. what kind of pressure will he put on to stop supporting the sanctions against russia? >> well you know in russia we are realists. we understand that hungary and greece have a formal right to put a veto on sanctions they
10:10 am
can't. people have the right to you know, get expelled. they didn't really have that right. we expect the sanctions to continue until the eu starts to see the big picture. it starts to see that both sides are at fault in this fight in ukraine. one fight is holding 3% of the territory, the other side, 97% of the territory. it's clear which side can seek territory for peace. >> thank you for joining us from moscow. the pictures are people marching through last night to protest against the visit of president putin. egypt's president has called on the u.n. to approve international military intervention against islamic state militants in libya. the call comes after egyptian warplanes bombed the targets in retaliation for the murder of a
10:11 am
group of egyptian christians in libya. in the past few hours, we have seen the memorial service held at the cathedral in cairo. let's take you to the service. we are joined from cairo. take us through the atmosphere how people were feeling at that service today. >> reporter: yes, i just came back from the memorial service held by the pope. pain grief, sadness, very visible on everybody's face there. i have spoken to some of the people and they told me they have mixed feelings of sadness and anger. one lady told me i woke up to the news and since then i couldn't go back to sleep. i asked them about the news concerning the tribes and they said yes, we had a sense of
10:12 am
belief. this is a moment of unity and we have to stand and support our leadership, our president because they do trust in the president and that he is going to take other measures to retaliate. the fact that these people were targeted mainly because of their faith, not nationality. >> more specific in terms of what he wants now from the international community in terms of a coalition to fight islamic state in libya? >> reporter: actually he said he wants the u.n. security council to issue a resolution to give the eyes of international coalition a mandate to intervene in libya. he said there are no other options on the table and we have to act together. this is how they feel toward getting involved in libya.
10:13 am
the egyptian army is busy fighting fierce battles. militants here in the pe innocence peninsula. they are fighting on two fronts at the same time and the egyptian/libyan border is known as being a place for smuggling weapons, human trafficking, military sources and linked to militants here in egypt and libya. this is a very important step for e egypt to take. >> dangerous crossing on boats to europe. hundreds of migrants continue to arrive in italy. italians say there's a state of emergency at the reception center on the tiny island.
10:14 am
let's go there. so difficult, obviously, for the migrants dealing with them at the reception center too. what are locals saying about how life changes for them as well? >> this small island of about 5,000 people. there was a time when the migrants were 20,000 double the number of the local people. initially, feeling happy to help. they took some of the people into their homes and gave them food. the situation changed. over the last three, four years rk the numbers have been growing and people are desperate. they no longer know what to do. this is an island unique for tourism. now, they can no longer come here because the number of migrants is growing endlessly. i have been around to get a feel of what the local people make of
10:15 am
this influx of migrants. another day, another boat load of migrants arrive. the numbers have been growing continuously for almost three years. local residents have been watching almost helplessly as the tourist destination turned into a temporary refugee for thousands of asylum seekers. as a result many have lost jobs and even for those who have to work, it is very slow. >> translator: businesses have suffered. tourism has been greatly affected. >> reporter: fishing is at the heart of this community. it is fisherman who see migrant
10:16 am
boats in trouble. >> translator: we see them often. sometimes they come close to us because they are lost and ask us where the island is and how to reach it. >> reporter: this is the mediterranean sea. it's between the migrants and their dream for a life in europe. increasingly, it is a cemetery of hundreds and hundreds of migrants. the italian jobs and rescue missions in the sea. difficult and has not made operations easier. last week nine migrants died from hypothermia after being rescued. >> translator: compared to other days, this time we got them all out safely. the other day, we had losses. for this we are terribly upset. >> reporter: the lucky ones who make it to shore, this is the start of a new life for the
10:17 am
islanders. there seems to be no easy way out of this crisis. now, the situation as the rescue operation scales down. the situation is moving from how to deal with the numbers of people here. at the reception center they have only the capacity to hold 250 people. right now, there are more than 1,000 at the center. it's busting at the seams. this morning, another 260 migrants arrived. that gives you the sail of how big the problem is. men, women and children have had to sleep outside. there are not enough facilities to provide them support. it's make it difficult for ships to dock elsewhere. that might be the case until the seas calm down. >> thanks for joining us from the tiny island south of italy. up state with other news. police in denmark say a
10:18 am
suspicious package has been found at the cafe in copenhagen the scene of a fatal shooting saturday. people were evacuateed from the area but no explosives have been found. the city has been on high alert since a gunman killed people in two separate attacks. the explosion close to the city's police headquarters was followed by gunfire from nearby vehicles and the area that was set on fire. stay with us here on "bbc world news." still to come mogadishu as you have never seen it before. how life is transforming in the life of somali.

10:21 am
the moment from afghanistan. we are hearing that at least 20 people have been killed in a suicide attack in the east of the country. we understand four militants entered the police headquarters in the capitol. they entered the compound and detonated their suicide vests in several locations. most of those who died are thought to have been police officers. these pictures have just come to us in the past hour or so. now, to a remarkable story of how a soldier who lost both legs in a bomb attack in afghanistan is learning how to walk again. he was in a coma for four months following the assault. they report on how treatment is going to come back. >> again!
10:22 am
push yourself! >> reporter: hope and self-belief have shown in his eyes. under the olympic flame, he sees the day and the world was with him. every step he takes is a giant stride and he's still out to impress. today, for the first time he felt comfortable enough to walk alone, away from the family members who have always been close by. independence? >> i do. i can't talk probably -- >> reporter: the transformation owes much to the life-changing therapy offered at this hospital at the scottish borders. the team is using a chamber
10:23 am
where ben can breathe pure oxygen at twice or atmospheric pressure. oxygen is key to any healing process. some say it can help to regenerate damaged tissue and cells. in ben's case the improvement was dramatic. after four weeks, nerves and muscles beginning to function. it's the start of a new stage in recovery and the end to the darkest days. >> at times i felt, are we doing the right thing fighting for him to survive? is this what he would want? not now. >> reporter: as you saw him walking through the house today, that's the best you have seen him. ift's because muscles are bouncing off each other.
10:24 am
>> i want others at the table -- everyone. >> reporter: robert hall, bbc news. >> bring you the latest pictures we have just received from haiti. it is cannibal time in many countries around the world. many people celebrating mardi gras. in haiti, 18 people on board a float were electrocuted. eyewitnesses are saying someone on the float used a pole or stick to try to move a power line to try and get the float to go under it. what you are seeing now is the after math of what happened. a number of people killed instantly when they were electrocuted. there was so much panic around the float and everyone rushing to help. there was so much panic a number
10:25 am
of people died too. while, the president already tweeted his condolences and sympathies to those who died. they are at the hospital helping to treat the injured and helping out there, too. those pictures just coming to us from haiti. at least 80 people have been killed. a train carrying crude oil burst into flames after derailing in the american state of west virginia. the accident started a huge fire. at least one of the tankers plunged into a river. one person was injured. safety officials ordered the evacuation of two nearby towns. from that incredible fire to ice and the freezing temperatures in philadelphia that caused problems for firefighters tackling a fire at a medical center. water from the hoses and the cold temperatures led to problems of ice for the crew.
10:26 am

10:29 am
10:30 am
"gmt" on "bbc world news." i'm lucy hockings. this half hour why teenagers are prepared to die for islamic state. this 17-year-old plans to be a suicide bomber in iraq. it's not the most obvious career move from international footballer to a role in an oscar nominated movie. he says it's acting that is now his great passion. also on the program, a question for aaron, why fly without
10:31 am
wi-fi? >> two-thirds of flights inside the u.s. let you surf the web compared to a quarter of flights in the rest of the world. yes, we are going to take a look at the push in europe to get on the cloud, in the cloud. welcome back to "gmt." a captured islamic state suicide bomber told bbc the group gets teenagers to carry out attacks in iraq. they push back from areas around the city. it's given the city a new lease of life. we have the report. this is turning into a different city. the nighttime curfew is lifted.
10:32 am
everyone knows it's not 100% safe. islamic state marks the lifting of the curfew with suicide bombings. but, the police are getting better at stopping them. and this is a suicide bomber just captured. we were given remarkable access to film him. he's only 17 just a boy, homeless vulnerable. i.s. showed him how to wear an explosive vest with his thumb on the trigger. they promised me i would go straight to heaven he says. the majority of recruits are like me or younger. younger? how young?
10:33 am
14 15 16 or 17 like me. and you were fully prepared to kill women and children as well as men? yes, sir, he says. why are you crying? because i'm so sorry for this, he says. you are ashamed of what you were going to do? yes. there's no sign that he is saying this because he's being mistreated. now, he'll serve time in prison. after that he could still have a decent future. police in baghdad have also had some success against car bombs. each check point has a list of suspicious vehicles police are on the lookout for. the man of the interior ministry is upbeat. are you winning this war?
10:34 am
>> i'm comfortable to say yes, we are winning the war. we have hope and we have faith that this year is the end. >> reporter: a few months ago, there were fears that i.s. might capture baghdad itself. you don't hear that now and i.s. is being pushed back in the country as a whole. but, the new prime minister is well aware that iraq's third city mosul is still in i.s. hands. >> i can't announce this. we have already started the preparation -- so, we are assigning certain army divisions to that task. >> reporter: mosul will be back in your hands by the end of the year? >> i hope so. >> reporter: is his optimism
10:35 am
justified? after all, last week i.s. scored a victory in western iraq. but, it isn't as strong as it was while the government forces are stronger. the first, there are reasons to be optimistic here. john simpson, bbc news baghdad. time to catch up with business. aaron is with us in this game of chicken as the greece debt deal continues. who is going to blink first? >> nobody at the moment is blinking. i don't know how many times we can use the term deja vu but the clock is ticking fast. hello there, i'm sure you have heard this a meeting of eurozone has met again without a decision on the economic problem in greece. athens rejected to extend its 240 euro.
10:36 am
it expires the 28th of february. the key is the stability of the country's bank. let's have a closer look at why that matters. well, the banks have already seen billions billions of euros withdrawn in recent months with a reliance on the ecb, european central bank. currently, they are making up for the loss of deposit by funding. this would all come to a swift end if there's no bailout agreement. that really is a nightmare scenario. greece would have to impose extensive financial control. what are we talking about? that means stop people from taking their own money out of banks out of the country and possibly the re-introduction of national currency.
10:37 am
we are talking about greece leaving the eurozone. we have the london school of ek noms with us. kevin, thank you. is the train running out of track here because europe says athens you have until this friday and if no deal done greece, you are on your own. >> well as you say, it's an intense drama. we need to distinguish between the minute by minute drama and the underlying reality you explained so very well in the lead in here. it still remains that greece has an overwhelming interest in striking a deal. what we saw yesterday was a dispute about si man ticks, whether it would be a continuation of the bailout deal or whether it would be something new. we have to go back to the by the end of february greece faces a shaky financial situation, if it
10:38 am
didn't get some continuation of the existing support. as you said also in terms of the banks, they are on a life support mechanism. >> it's all very shaky, indeed. isn't this the problem? a big part of the problem, the finance minister his most recent comment is greece has lived beyond its means for too long and nobody wants to lend us more money without guarantees. it's those guarantees isn't it? >> yes. as you say, at the moment we have one against 18. the negotiating balance isn't that favorable to athens. i think, also what needs to contemplate are the risks of the yureurozone going to a crisis. if they were to have the controls you were referring to
10:39 am
introducing a euro currency. they have to balance, i'm tempted to say destruction. it's not quite like that. the risks are on both sides. it's not taking groups and you have to pay for past sins. it's banks, for example, lent to greece to create the sins. >> certainly the drama, the saga continues. no doubt we'll speak to you again. thank you for joining us. kevin from the london school of economics. don't you just hate it hate it when you board a flight and you can't, well you can't get online. how are you going to stay in touch with your best 700 friends on facebook? if you are traveling inside the united states, you are more likely to have that problem than the rest of the world. europe is fighting back in a desperate attempt to catch up
10:40 am
and cash in surfing in the sky. michael joins us from the news room. great to have you with us. this is interesting. not long ago, the u.s. carriers were suffering huge financial losses many in bankruptcy protection. today, they are well in advance, in leaps and bounds in terms of getting online in the air. why? why and how have they done that? >> well aaron, first of all, i think the european airlines are just as eager to offer this service to their passengers because passengers just expect it now. not just as a businessman, but a modern connected human being will expect that they will be connected. we are connected all the time no matter where we are. 4g coverage is so good we have come to rely on it. it's not just in the states but also here in europe that airlines really want to do this. >> if they do why haven't they
10:41 am
done it? what's the problem in europe? >> in europe you have to realize, there are many countries, things are difficult. in the united states it's a single country. the mobile they have used there is air. it's like gigantic cells you are used to. that's just easier to do when you only have a single country. here in europe there are many. european airlines have had to use satellites. satellites are more expensive to operate. that makes a business model shaky. >> many airlines look at this as a huge revenue or the potential of a huge revenue earner. some airlines offer for free some don't. are passengers prepared to pay, do you think? >> well, that's the problem. research that they have done shows that it's actually fewer than half 49% to be exact, of passengers who are willing to
10:42 am
pay for connectivity. those who are willing to pay are only willing to pay something to the tune of seven euros per flight. that does not pay the cost. the business model is difficult. what airlines have to do is work with an entire ecosystem of you know advertisers of people to whom the data on usage would be valuable. if they would pay for the service so airlines could make it available for free to passengers that would be a game changer. >> it would. it might be hard for europe to play catch up. you cannot just whack a system on the plane. it's got to go offline. that costs money, et cetera et cetera. >> what we see is with new aircraft, they might have connectivity. right now, it's mainly the
10:43 am
airbus 20 and boeing 757 family. airlines that have gone through a flight renewal plan are at an advantage. they can make it available from the beginning. it's more difficult if you have an older fleet. >> that's great stuff. we appreciate your time. we'll speak to you sometime soon alexander michael with us. tweet me, i'll tweet you back. that's it with the business why fly without wi-fi. >> good huh? >> you are not going to admit you wrote that? straight to the top story. a cease-fire in eastern ukraine. these reports around the down. let's take you to kiev. we can speak to michael from the osc, a group supposed to be monitoring the truce. michael, good to see you. obviously, everyone wants to know what's happening. it's essential to get your monitors into the town.
10:44 am
are you any closer to doing that today? >> we certainly hope so. as we speak, our deputy chief monitor is with a team in solegard, north of the city. they are talking to an entity called the joint center for control and coordination. this is basically a staff from the russian forces and also the ukrainian armed forces. the idea is to talk about the range of cease-fire issues and access to the city which we have not accessed for some time now. of course the other aspect that is going on with the special monitoring is we have 20 patrols on the ground here in the conflict zone and yesterday up until 1800 local time they did record some violation. we are seeing that the cease-fire, in general, is holding. there are some exceptions. the biggest amount of fighting
10:45 am
was around here. i can tell you that around the city, there were multiple launched rocket systems, a barrage of missiles for two hours. >> how reliable is the information you are getting? we are getting reports saying the russian backed rebels are claiming they now control the town. >> well part of the strength of the mission is we report what we only see with our own eyes. that's why it's crucial for us to get there. our chief monitor will be briefing the permanent council of the osc by video link from kiev. that's going to happen at 1600 local time 1400 "gmt." at that time we'll update what we are seeing on the ground today. i can tell you that there were some hot spots alive again. it's really important to point out that there are areas of
10:46 am
calm. donetsk, crucially and mariopol. it remains to be seen what's to be seen. >> we heard from angela merkel and she spoke to putin and they agreed to let your observers in. that must involve a protection for them as well. it's so dangerous on the ground. how do you look after your monitors and make sure they are safe? >> we are an unarmed civilian mission. we are going to have 300 monitors on the ground in the conflict zone. they are traveling around in armored vehicles. there's a call to participate in states from more armored vehicles. they have protective gear. they have very very intensive safety training before they arrive here. they only operate under strict security regime daylight hours and also you know security
10:47 am
assessments are made frequently. it's updated all the time on the situation on the ground. having said that we take risk upon ourselves. there were close calls in the past few months of shelling happening nearby. but, 50% of our monitors are former military. many are former law enforcement. they have a very good sense of not only protecting themselves but what to look out for. >> thank you for joining us with that from kiev. stay with us on "bbc world news." magadishu as you have never seen it before. how this instagram account is transforming lives. how do i get hotel deals nobody else gets?... i know a guy. price-line ne-go-ti-a-tor! i know this guy... konohito... and this guy... who knows a guy. hey guy. i know a guy in new york, vegas, dallas. i've known some guys for decades and some, nice to meet ya, let's deal. my competitors may know a guy, but i know over 60,000 guys. and gals. exclusive hotel deals

i'm lucy hockings. the top story this is hour.
10:50 am
reported around the key town in eastern ukraine to fight a broken cease-fire. egypt calls for a coalition against militants in libya following the murder of a group of christians. what do you think life is like in the somali capitol magadishu? well one young civil servant's instagram account is offering an alternative review that's attracted tens of thousands of followers. >> this is the vicious fighting. >> malnutrition. >> what's up? this is how i'm living these days.
10:51 am
i did not have a mission. i wanted to make my friends laugh. [ speaking foreign language ] check it out if you are here. now, my mission might be just showing that this is just as normal as anywhere else in the world. i think a lot of people fret over coming to certain african country that is have experienced war. >> it was astonishing. it was like walking in the mall and seeing your reflection in a slice of mirror.
10:52 am
we know that we come from a tradition. we recognize ourselves in poetry, in africa, especially. no i don't feel privileged at all. a lot of us who came back to somalia are here because we want to be here not because we live lavishly. i'm actually putting myself at risk every time i leave the house knowing there's a sniper on somebody's roof a suicide park zooms past me. i'm here to make that change. >> magadishu as you have never seen it before. >> from football to big leagues in the movies. he's become the first person to not only win the world cup, but have a role in a film nominated for best picture. he plays a doctor where he's
10:53 am
told he will not speak again. we went to meet him in paris. >> reporter: won the world cup in spectacular style. 1998 frank labeouf wins. it's not football he's playing now, but a swiss doctor in "the theory of everything." like many before him, he's serious about acting. currently appearing on stage in paris in the comedy "my mother-in-law, my ex and me." why did you choose acting? >> i came back to my first passion, which is movies and plays as well. what i was like 4 years old, i wanted to be an actor. i went to l.a. to learn the process of acting. we have a chance to live two
10:54 am
