have reopened their doors to students since i saw the siege was broken on the fifth of september humanitarian convoys have managed to deliver much needed aid government forces with the backing of russia's therefore the now battling to quell the remaining pockets of terrorists around the city and with syria making gains on the ground against eisel positive steps were also made a peace talks held in the kazakstan capital asset. the parties that have now agreed on the final boundaries of four deescalation zones across syria. is in the country . the talks in aston i now over and every school to me is that the sides involved the syrian government as well as the rebels and the three sponsor countries that is russia iran and turkey have agreed on the establishment of de confliction zones in syria where the fighting is fiercest between rebels and the syrian government three countries that have agreed to guarantee the de confliction
zones that is russia again turkey and iran will have monitors on the ground watching for any cease fire violations and taking action and as necessary move these d. completions rooms will be set up in. aleppo here in the taqiyya in. the south of syria as well as in homs province these a areas again where the clashes between the syrian government and the rebels. and where civilians have borne the brunt of all this suffering that they have had to have to endure the u.n. envoy to syria stefan de mistura as well as the russian ambassador who is just optimism again and they said that if these swoops that this will be a big relief for the people of syria perhaps there will in geneva will be continued talking and not only talking but taking action on the humanitarian of victims which
is a natural consequence of a difficult name or a difficult issue the more humanitarian action. we consider the establishment of the deescalation zones to be a major milestone it has served as the light at the end of the tunnel for the syrian people and made them feel more secure it gives hope for progress in the near future it's worth mentioning that the sticking with de confliction zooms on to a new idea they have been implemented by russia and the united states and by and large they have worked nevertheless it's important to bear in mind. that there are action nusra front here in aleppo in egypt who will try to spoil the right to ruin the. fiction areas or cease fires as they have in the past so it will be important to watch for that martin j l lebannon based journalist believes the opposition groups leaving the deescalation zones could still be a problem we'll see what happens in the next few days are still quite
a number of ambiguity is about the deal that. is the al-qaeda coalition if you like in italy problems which is part of a new sort of you know what some of the fiercest groups. outside of what we've been used to have with a sort of fighting with isis so i mean that's going to be a real issue they're not going to give up very easily the f.s.a. soldiers which we've called rather kindly i think over the years a moderate rebels and not always ready moderate in all cases but the big question will will will hang over the world if they do they get some sort of a peace deal with the guilt their arms and go back to their villages. in a clear show of defiance against spanish rule hundreds of cattle and officials have met to show their support for the upcoming independence referendum large crowds have also gathered outside the city council building in barcelona to voice their commitment to the course the catalonian president praised the will of the people.
not do not underestimate the strength of the people of catalonia it's been the central government may have many laws many politicians but there's one thing that they don't have they don't have you know they don't have the people of catalonia. a. they strongly opposes the independence potion is investigating over seven hundred cattle and mayors who pledged their support for the campaign last week and madrid is really doing all it can to scupper the referendum which is set to take place on october the first spanish authorities have told catholic media outlets to stop publishing content and and for its backing independence while police have raided a printing house the country's prime minister commended the drive to stop the breakaway. it is necessary to congratulate in particular the civil guard today they have seized more than one hundred thousand cattle on government propaganda
posters last week the spanish constitutional court suspended legislation passed in the catalan parliament which allowed the vote to take place and on friday but also loner the region's capital was given just forty eight hours to sign an agreement guaranteeing the public money will not be spent on the referendum if it is madrid is threatening to seize control over parts of catalonia as budget not a single year of the catalans will be directed toward a legal referendum that is wanted by few perhaps there's more than a few though as many as fifty percent of catalans are in favor of independence according to the latest polls one man we spoke to says madrid's treatment of catalonia shows democracy isn't in good shape in spain. if you're faced with them asking i think it's very sad it's more than just indignation to see the democratic generation of the spanish state and this feels bad this is what we regret most of
all but that's all we are calm we have a lot of work to do in the municipality continue working for the people that's what is important for us the majority of the members of the parliament of the catalonian parliament are in favor of the wind up and learns eighty percent of the cattle and six and ship is in favor of their referendum of several terminations to ask catalans if they want or not the independence the referendum by without despondence a state because that's what war on we don't do it unilaterally because we want to hide anything. they keep offering the sponsor state to negotiate and to be war dissipates in these democratic exercise but it's up to them. there's been more condemnation from the u.n. security council over north korea's latest missile test at an emergency closed door
session members called on each other to fully implement sanctions against pyongyang the meeting came after north korea fired that ballistic missile over japan or friday photos of the launch have since been released and with no new approach to the crisis agreed this is how russia's u.n. ambassador described what's happening we were discussing for a world that were really militia circle where. a resolution a provocation provocation resolution with another provocation. we were going to play these many people raised an issue that we have to think maybe out of the books it does seem the current sanctions and military drills failing to bring about a positive breakthrough on the peninsula. this is the most stringent set of sanctions on any country in
a generation. these sanctions will cut deep. and you'll get obscene in today's resolution builds on what we're already the deepest cutting sanctions ever leveled against north korea those sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen. in other news this hour three children have died after a fire ripped through a summer camp in the ukrainian city of odessa the fire broke out in a dormitory blog overnight one hundred fifty young people were at the camp at the
time and forty two were in the building where the blaze took hold according to an initial investigation the fire was caused by an electrical fault here are some accounts from survivors and eyewitnesses. so it's not like you but it's not the. league old you know it was not all about you know but you outdo each other to stop lady. just good choice. you know something about the profile of the royal but my god my dear.

the. u.s. president donald trump's critics have been unrelenting since he took office and it seems now even some of his supporters aren't happy with his policies this is out of the trump label to deliver on some key campaign promises including seemingly the border with mexico on thursday trump tweeted that it is being built and that existing fences have been renovated but that's not enough for some american reports . to make america great again the slogan many trump supporters chose to stand behind wearing his signature maggot hats with pride. and now they're burning them let's make america great again we love truck we love true.
violence several campaign promises leaves me no choice. so why are they angry well in their eyes trump has softened his top stance on immigration one of his key campaign promises he's now negotiating a deal with democrats to protect young undocumented migrants and there's no guarantee he's actually going to build his infamous border wall with mexico we're building the wall we're building the wall folks we're building we're going to build a wall and mexico is going to pay for the wall we're going to and we'll see how it works. we're going to get the border security is part of that kind of begin to wonder what the. trump bipartisan outreach seems to be the final straw for his
most ardent supporters in return for this concession the president received nothing no end to chain migration the president isn't even getting a border wall so he insisted still somehow get one later possibly if we're not getting a wall i'd prefer president pence at this point who doesn't want trump in peached critics are viewing trump's attempts to term democrats as a transformation to a normal president. but this transformation might come across as confusing to both his supporters and his opponents donald trump supporters and i don't speak for all of them but. they expected donald trump to actually accomplish significant pieces of legislation and now here we are in the middle of september and there's not a lot coming. creature show for donald trump's time in office he hasn't managed to get a lot of people confirmed in key positions so i think we have to view donald trump's young presidency as a presidency where the people who elected him elected
a disruptor people are growing frustrated among his supporters and obviously they're saving anger and resentment among his opponents i think it's high time to actually see our concrete bills that address the core structural problems inside our country which households address humans address for some reason our washington d.c. crowd doesn't want to address that's what we want to see people are becoming impatient there's a lot of talk where's the action where the results so the question is who will trump choose to please his base which carried him to the oval office or his critics . well one thing is for sure he certainly can appeal to both. of them you're high on our team washington d.c. . harvard university has retracted the name for taishan for chelsea manning to become a visiting fellow it says the author made to the former military intelligence analyst and whistleblower was a mistake in ounce man comes after the cia's director mike pompei pulled out of
a planned appearance at the university because of the proposal he says harvard's often the just to mises mining's quote treasonous actions chelsea manning was behind the release of course of hundreds of thousands of classified u.s. government documents she was charged with espionage after handing them to wiki leaks in twenty ten and said to the thirty five years in prison that was commuted however in the last day of barack obama's presidency and she was eventually released back in may of this year. i am. never not.
after her invitation to become a visiting fellow was withdrawn manning called america a police state where the cia determines what is taught in schools and universities we spoke to former british and u.s. intelligence officers about the controversy they told us that the situation is shameful for both harvard and the cia. academic institutions are supposed to be independent this must be academically rigorous and they're supposed to want to investigate the truth however inconvenient it is and harvard is one of the best in the world allegedly ceasing it would have the guts to stand up for the principles of truth telling proper investigation proper research and this is something i think someone with chelsea manning background could to contribute to so much and the fact that they put out the invitation and then rescinded as in a few days because of political pressure you think they would have sources tell us ahead of time and i'm sure that the leadership in harvard probably did sound out the authorities and were told it was ok and for someone to throw
a hissy fit in the back rooms of some intelligence agency somewhere who's feeling particularly spiteful vindictive towards a whistleblower this is a shame for situation. our harvard and other educational institutions depend very heavily on government funds and are heavily influenced by what we call the deep state our grid has has been a down in the billions of dollars but i guess they feel they still need all the government money that comes in other ways to support this or that institute none of them studying torture techniques or any their abuses their pompei oh it's favoring here. to other world news now protesters have clashed with police in athens out before year anniversary rally of a murdered anti far right. police
