5:33 am
and umbria -- and serbia. exporter with serbia completely closed, even those of official order crossings were closed last night. he saw the rush for the border were pute new policies in place. most of people wanting to transition past hungary and into places like germany and beyond. hungary definitely cracking down. means is that the army can actually be brought into back up police either along the border for security, or in any other migrant related duties. that is what they say. this has to be approved by parliament, and that is done next week normally, but the emergency situation also gives police new powers. they can enter anyone's home without a warrant if they suspect migrants without papers
5:34 am
are living there. that means it was any asylum related request to the top of their list. anyone coming through serbia, and the vast majority of the 200,000 people who have gone into hungry so far this year have walked. as for them, serbia is a safe country. genie: speaking at this press conference, germany was already quite fun they do not want to take part in these quotas, saying that they want to punish them. what would they do? >> the talks in brussels did not lead to very much other than a vague draft proposal. of the euts some funds that go to the country to be strict and they want punishment for the countries that do not take on part of the responsibility of hosting the refugees. the vice chancellor said europe had made a full of itself and
5:35 am
that this crisis is far bigger than the greek crisis and that we need a summit sooner than later. we are being told october 8 is the day that brussels will outweigh the deep -- outline the details of what to do, possibly a way to spread out the 120,000 refugee request around the other 22 countries. hollande isois pushing for airstrikes against islamic state group in syria. france is already part of the western coalition carrying out bombings on militants in iraq, but the first -- but this is the first time action would be officially carried out across the border in syria. >> france committed to the fight against terrorism in the islamic state group a long time ago. we are taking part in the coalition in iraq. we announced flights, allowing ifto lunch airstrikes
5:36 am
necessary. and in syria, it will be necessary. genie: russia has position about half a dozen tanks at an airfield in the center of a military buildup in syria. u.s. officials say the reasons behind the russian deployment are still unclear. moscow has come under increased international pressure in recent days to explain those moves. -- russiabeen backing has been backing president bashar al-assad is the -- since the conflict broke out four years ago. here's more from regional correspondent sean walker. sean: here, we are back in two this criminal terminology. everyone's got their own reason about why this sudden buildup in syria, why now. some people in russia suggest it vladimirely about putin's dislike for all kinds of
5:37 am
terrorism and wanting to fight the islamic state. some say it is a trick to distract attention from ukraine, where of course, russia has been waging this very secret war for the past year. some have even said it is a deliberate ploy to increase the flow of refugees and foot up the european union more. at this stage, it is very hard to tell, because in moscow, one man makes the decisions that we're really trying to get in that he said and workout what this is about. far, most people's responses have been linked to what they already think about putin. we don't really know exactly why now and what is running on. genie: with the buildup in russia in syria itself, we've been hearing about this for a few weeks now. what is real and what is not? sean: without u.s. officials in recent days saying they have takes --ral p90 modern
5:38 am
tanks coming in. they have seen more russian soldiers. there are two possible readings of this. like i say, this is very difficult because we got the situation in ukraine for the past year we have been trying to measure what is going in and what is coming out and to what level and what kind the russian troops are there. -- and what kind of russian troops are there. this is for russia to show that it can get in -- involved in this. this is more of a kind of show force that is meant to put the cards down on the table is one reading. the other reading is the direct opposite, that russia is trying to do this reasonably secretly.
5:39 am
there have been few things on social media or intelligence wise. you can find six people telling you one story and half a dozen telling you the other. onestime will tell which were right. genie: for over a year now, close to 7000 airstrikes have been carried out by the western coalition against the islamic state group. those strikes have targeted both iraq and syria. 24 terrorg in france expert, was enough. was what is it like one year afterim nasser. these airstrikes began? wasim: they lost a few important towns like to create -- to crit

5:41 am
add its own strikes across the border in syria. how would that help? asim he was very: specific about that and said that targets would be very well-defined. and will choose targets, probably french targets. as the british did, they chose targets who were -- you might have constituted a danger for the countries themselves, for terrorist attacks here. ist you should not forget what the intelligence committee said a few days ago. the losses of the islamic state were accelerated. we were talking about 10,000 fighters dead. and now it is mostly 1500. and on the ground, advances were exaggerated. this is a big issue today in the states, because the reports were not accurate. they did not stick to reality. we know from experience that
5:42 am
strikes from the air never stopped a jihadi group, or any group. we saw in afghanistan, iraq, yemen, somalia. boots on the ground are needed if an outcome is to be seen in the upcoming months. but when the united states was in iraq, they lost battles many times and have many casualties and there was much destruction. it was four months of strikes [indiscernible] the french that they would be very size -- very precise. real more military effort regarding the french strikes in syria. genie: thank you for that. alexisgreece, where
