5:01 am
virtually no opposition, the bangladesh government wins by a landslide. going back to basics in india could make the country a global milk provider. ♪ thousands of people are fleeing the iraqi cities of fallujah after days of violence after the army faces resistance of tribesmen and al-qaeda linked fighters and they say they have taken over parts of key cities in the providence and it's preparing to retake fallujah and many people abandoned their homes and heading to a sea and majority area and seen as relatively safe. the united states says it supports iraq's fight against
5:02 am
al-qaeda but not sending troops. >> we are in contact with tribal leaders from manbar providence and showing great courage in standing up against this as they reject terrorist groups from their cities. and this is a fight that belongs to the iraqis. that is exactly what the president and the world decided sometime ago when we left iraq and we are not contemplating returning and not contemplating putting boots on the ground because this is their fight all but we will help them in their fight. >> reporter: they need more technological assistance from the u.s., not ground troops. >> well, i think that america will be involved but as a secretary of state said it will not be with man power. it will probably be with advanced intelligence support, technical and tactical intelligence but certainly not with boots on the ground. the american troops pulled out
5:03 am
and quite frankly the iraqi troops and forces are not asking for man power assistance. i talked to the foreign minister about a month ago and asked them what they needed and would they need american forces and he said, no, we have millions of troops in the military and inside the police. we don't need man power from america. we need advanced technical capabilities. >> reporter: and we are joined in the studio to tell us more about the roots of the current crisis in manbar providence. >> the tribes in the providence protested and the biggest demand was the release of sunni prisoners and the president took notice of this and tried pushing through a series of reforms but they were blocked by both sierra and political parties and this is seen as a provocation to the thrives and the isil was formed taking advantage of the political power vacuum and
5:04 am
waging a bloody campaign across the country and had safe havens across the iraq and syrian border and played on sheer domination. the tribes unofficially accepted their presence and then just last month fighters killed over 20 iraqi soldiers and the prime minister had enough and sent the army into enbar but tribal rivalries came to for and now they are encouraging the tribes to take on the isa-il fighters themselves. >> reporter: if i could get you to join me at the desk. i understand that the iraqi army is now actually surrounding the city of fallujah but not actually going in, why? what is going on? >> that is a tactical move from the army and cutoff the city and let residents to leave and stopped shelling to allow the fighters to go in themselves to clear the area for the fighters.
5:05 am
this is a tactic on the part of the iraq army and the sunnis said any operation that took place would have to be led by them and effectively that is what is happening and the prime minister insisted the tribes should be dealing with this themselves. >> reporter: and if you could put it into some sort of context for us, why is all this kicking us right now? >> it's really two reasons. firstly iraq had the bloody year of violence since 2008 and nearly 8,000 people died as a result of violence. the chaos in syria is another reason. we have seen a lot of these fighters fighting in syria, across the border and fighting in iraq and also elections coming up, april 30 and elections are, the elections are due and the prime minister needs to build a support and say to the people of iraq he is doing something to combat the violence. >> reporter: is the iraqi government going to be able to regain control or is security out of control in iraq?
5:06 am
>> it's out of control. i think that is what a lot of people will tell you. you speak to most ordinary iraqis like in baghdad and they are in leaving neighborhoods, they stay there, the city is divided between shia and sunni and people do not cross the street and there is nervousness in the air and something the iraq people will tell you whether this is the right way of going about it remains to be seen. >> reporter: thank you very much for putting that into perspective for us. and all that al-qaeda linked group is on the ground in neighboring syria and in recent days it is under at tack by opposition fighters and we report from beirut in neighboring lebanon. syria's armed opposition is pushing forward with what seems to be a coordinated offensive against the islamic state in iraq and the isil.
5:07 am
the al-qaeda linked group is being pushed out of its bases, a war has been declared by some rebel forces who believe isil has not been working for the interests of their revolution. the foreign fighters created many states in many areas of the rebel-held north imposing their own laws which many in the opposition believe are brutal. isil for its part has threatened to withdraw fighters from the front lines, if attacks against it continue. warning that regime forces would then be able to retake allepo. isil said it was being stabbed in the back by some groups involved in a conspiracy that seeks to get rid of al-qaeda before peace planned talks in jaw -- geneva but some people
5:08 am
believe it has to do with geneva. >> there is fighting over who is the initiator with the regime, so far there is no unified opposition. actually there is a lot of in-fighting in order to produce a negotiator. >> reporter: the syrian national coalition, the main political coalition in exile and asked it to recognize the supporting of revolutionary forces as partners in the fight against al-qaeda. the syrian conflict has spread and so has al-qaeda's and it first emerged in iraq a few years ago and the vacuum caused in syria allowed it to cause it and now it has a presence in neighboring lebanon. it claimed responsibility for the latest attack targeting
5:09 am
supporters of hezbollah. and authorities in iraq and lebanon are trying to wipe out the group. this may not be an easy battle. another reminder that syria's war does not have borders. al jazeera, beirut. fighting is reported in the syrian city, the area is a stronghold of that same al-qaeda linked group we have been talking about. this video is said to show prisoners released from jails being run by them. the islamic state of iraq has reportedly withdrawn from several bases in syria and handed them over to another al-qaeda linked group. turkey's prime minister will not stand in the way of pretrial of officers who were convicted of a coup plot and last week they filed a complaint over court
5:10 am
cases saying evidence produced at the trials was made up. in october they upheld the convictions of retired officer whose are in prison for plotting to over throw the government ten years ago. the main opposition in bangladesh has gone on the offensive against the ruling of an exit poll said a landslide win for the league in opposition boycott of the vote and 24 died in election related violence since sunday and a calm is over the capitol, a day after elections, prime minister has seen and addressing the nation shortly opposing her and her party is the bangladesh party but said they have been given the opportunity to talk about the grievances. >> this is no surprise they won an absolute majority as a result of this very one-sided election,
5:11 am
the seats have gone to the government and they would have won two thirds of parliament is assured and also news on turn out. turn out figures may go up as the day goes on but already the electoral commission is around 40% mark which will surprise a number of people, not least the media who is on consensus that the turn out without be low and this is the star newspaper and turn out low in deadliest polls and saying it could have been the lowest ever. of course the president suggests as it did on election day that these strike periods bring violence out on the strikes, they may be the case in the days to come and that will frustrate efforts to begin any sort of a dialog towards what happens next in this country. as long as these parties remain
5:12 am
at loggerheads little progress can be made and they will try to sustain a government here but it seems unlikely they will be days perhaps longer of violence and turmoil ahead. >> for more on this let's speak to tonya and she is based in the bangladesh capitol and from where you stand is this expected result of a landslide win for the league legitimate? >> from a constitutional point of view, and this is the constitutional vacuum because we needed a government in election and it did not participate in election and the coalition, one of the parties in the opposition got itself disqualified to the political party in bangladesh and couldn't come to election and people feel because of them
5:13 am
the leading opposition and coalition will not allowed to participate in election. along with that we have also seen a number of terrorist attacks in bangladesh. the national study of terrorism and response to it initiateed by homeland security identified them and the organization as terrorists organizations and attacks we see on minorities. >> reporter: sorry to interrupt there but the point is that there was no opposition in this election and even international observers refuse to take part in it and how can it be representative and be legitimate? >> the issue is that when you say there was new opposition that is incorrect, there were independent candidates in some of the political parties to have participated. there are two under lying issues. one was that the major political party has privacy and ought to
5:14 am
have taken part in the election because their performance would have been very good but because of the coalition which is otherwise disqualified from participating in the election process, it did not come. one of the reasons they put forward is the 15th amendment to the constitution to have an election under a neutral caretaker complement and no formula has been put forward by any organization of what the shape of the government would look like. had there been a proper formulation then i think people could have participated along with the government to come up with a formula under which a neutral government can be formed. as the constitution stands at the moment we needed to have an election as the constitutional is. and the 15th amendment is curious has not been challenged before the supreme court by any one of the political parties. >> reporter: has this election
5:15 am
changed anything though? >> yes. >> reporter: does it leave the political crisis exactly where it was before the vote? >> even if the elections were held with all the parties participating, we are not sure if the terrorist attacks would go away because this is because of the war criminals who committed crimes in crimes against humanities in 1971 against the people of bangladesh including minorities and this is what we are beginning to see as the impunity culture is being put to an end. one is not sure even if the election was inclusive if the terrorist attacks would go away. as we mentioned the homeland security association identifies it as a terrorist organization and the program would like to appeal to the world humanity at large to support bangladesh in
5:16 am
its fight against terrorism and put an end to impunity who are still attacking today. >> reporter: they for speaking to us. and one of al jazeera's producers is in court and one of three staff members held in custody by the egyptian authorities without charge for the last nine days. and peter greste and fahmy and mohamed are accused of joining a terrorist group and said it's fact dated and they are in a prison outside of tiro and peter greste is an award winning correspondent who has reported extensively across africa and he has worked for cnn, "new york times" and red cross and also an

5:18 am
fighting between government forces and those loyal have killed at least a thousand people and sudan thinks it could drag down the economy and we report from there. >> it looks like business as usual here. but below the surface there is deep concern. >> translator: conflict in the south will drain our resources here in the north. >> translator: we are one country and i have friends in the south. we are one people and bothering me they are killing each other. >> translator: the south people are sudaneeze like us and what effects them effects us. >> reporter: sudan and south sudan have ties and mutual interests and sudan relies on revenue from the pipeline and transport and south sudan oil to the harbor for export. >> and it will be cut and it
5:19 am
will lose the venue and it will contribute a lot to the sudaneeze crisis and it will double the sense of the crisis. >> reporter: south sudan rebels promised to keep the oil flowing but that is not enough reassurance. >> translator: instability poses real dangers to sudan and committed to peaks and calm returning there because of the security of the two countries is inseparable. if you are asking about military intervention i don't think it's an option here. >> reporter: and they are being neutral about the conflict in the south and staying idle and not find agree solution is a different situation. >> you cannot imagine what is going to happen in the future, if this conflict is going to continue. >> reporter: and he hints at the possible military role for his country in south sudan with a regional peace-keeping force. >> i wouldn't expect that the army will do it alone.
5:20 am
but definitely the sudan army have the capabilities and the knowledge, they have the instruments in order to have a strong influence in the south. >> reporter: sudan has 2000 kilometers of borrow dorr with south sudan and other unresolved issues including border delineation and migration and final stages of the area and open-ended war in the south will further complicate the pending issues. >> reporter: mohamed is in the capitol for us and what impact might this have on the talks in ethiopia. >> according to our sources the visit of the sudan government is not actually a part of the regional effort to go for
5:21 am
negotiations but sudan can see it's primarily concerned more than any other country by what is happening in the south. they think that their interests and their security is at stake and they have to make an additional effort on their own to try to find a solution in the south. i asked the syrian advisor to the president about the significance of his president and said bashir is showing support to the people and showing he is more interested and more concerned about any other president in the region and he wants to talk to the president and try to see if sudan can be ahead of any other country in trying to find a speedy solution for the conflict. >> reporter: mohamed, hasn't they been saying it's neutral with regards to this conflict but now bashir is meeting with solvikir but not the other and what can that do to the conflict? might it exacerbate things?
5:22 am
>> i raised that question as well just one hour ago with bashir's senior advisor and said he is not available, accessible for easy meeting but he said the sudan effort in the effort they are also meeting with representatives of bashir and said it doesn't mean siding with any party in this conflict but rather he is meeting with his counterpart and sending delegations to meet with them and that doesn't mean siding with anybody and he is sure that bashir would understand this well. >> reporter: mohamed there for us. israel is gearing up for a second day of protest and they want a new open-ended detention

thousand have been killed and thousands more driven from their homes in south sudan. the syrian national coalition is reelected for a second term and seen here in the middle got 65 votes and backed by saudi arabia and the west and snc has yet to see if it will attend up coming geneva talks coming up, and said it will only take part on certain conditions. joining us from istambul and is this a surprise win? one minute people expect the former syrian prime minister to win the position of president instead. >> actually, he has good experience for this and there
5:32 am
are people within this that feel trust with him and there is also a reason for mr. hijab and first of all people feel he has come from some countries who support him and at the same time the people still have trust with the people who are working with the region for a long time. so this is, i think it's normal if you know the feeling of the opposition and based on our experience. >> reporter: so what does it mean for the geneva two talks now he has a second term as the president of the syrian national coalition? >> again? >> reporter: will the syrian national coalition take part in the geneva two talks?
5:33 am
>> i think this is -- i don't understand your question well. but if i understand, i think he is -- he has good relationship with saudi arabia and good relationship with fighters on the ground and that may be the main reason who has big support inside the coalition. and, also, based on our experience with the other leaders, he has a good, he had a good -- he has had good experience also, again, a good job and he is very good.

so for these results i think he was achieving this spot and also we can't expect for him, we can't expect for him good achievement next time. >> reporter: we will leave it there and thank you for speaking to us. the japanese prime minister says he wants to explain to leaders in china and south korea why he visited an shrine last month and they were made when he went to an shrine that honors war criminals and they will talk about disputes and historical issues. michael from the center for international studies at the massachusetts institute of technology based in tokyo explained the possible motive
5:35 am
behind the comments on his visit to the shrine. >> the real meat of the quote was i basically said what i wanted to say about kooni when i went there so i have not changed my opinions about it. there you go. so if china or south korea, the governments there of, were looking for something more, they really didn't get it today. but that is to be excepted. his position on going to kooni and other actions are a part of his general political program. we are probably going to see a lessening of tensions and lessening of confrontations at least in japan will work very hard for that because they want to have nice atmosphere for the arrival of president obama in the spring. united states' role is kind of fraught because they are ally of south korea and japan which have a territorial dispute and the
5:36 am
united states is at least in some kind of competition with china and being japan's ally. this is a really dicy position for the united states. it's trying to balance all kinds of different agendas, not the least of which is that it owes both japan and china a tremendous amount of money. these things come together and make a very difficult package. so to think big brother america will come in and try to make peace is a little bit too hopeful in my view. >> reporter: the taps have run dry for 10s of thousands of people and it's more than two weeks since residents of the area have been unable to use the municipal water supply because of toxins caused by algae and we report. >> reporter: the cups are a sign of discontent, this is the people warning the authorities that they are running out of
