5:01 am
election - thailand's prime minister defies the protesters. >> but first a developing story coming out of iraq. at least 58 have been killed in a series of attack. 94 others have been wounded. the bombings targeted the capital baghdad and bacuba. further south the bodies of three police were found near the capital. the latest attacks coming after a stripping of bombings hit kur cook on tuesday. those blasts killed at least 13 people. >> imran khan has reported extensively from iraq and joins us in the studio. put this into context for us. why are the attacks happening in
5:02 am
shia-dominated area? >> let's break them down. the first attack was in a shi'a-dominated area. it's two fold. you have the shia-dominated area, that the sunni groups are too close iran, who is close to the syrian government. they say they have not been given enough rights under the shia-dominated government, so they have grievances and feel like they are being attacked in fallujah and ramadi. in backooufa the attack took place at a funeral for a sunni militiaman who was pro-government. he was a sunni fighter fighting on the pro-government side. that's why it's likely this would have been an attack from i.s.i.l. it's sebbing taria and -- sectarian and do with the sunni groups. the only response they have is
5:03 am
the attacks taking place. >> a big challenge for the iraqi government. thank you for putting that into context for us. >> now, world powers may not be able to stop the fighting in syria that raged on four years, but they can give money. that is going on in kuwait. a donor conference. secretary of state john kerry and ban ki-moon is among those present, and bernard smith. what pledges have been made so far? >> well, there has been extraordinary numbers bandied around, not at least the 4 million syrians depended on u.n. aid in syria. the hopes of the conference, the kuwaities offered $500 million, first off the mark.
5:04 am
the secretary of state john kerry offered $380 million on behalf of the u.s. government, and that already is getting close what was pledged a year ago, which was $1.5 billion. they are looking for that, $6.5 billion. >> one of the problems is that not all the money that is pledged actually gets paid. apparently 20% or 30% is outstanding from the last conference and this is worrying the u.n. chief ban ki-moon. >> well, i spoke to the u.n. representatives early on. they say now they have 80% of the money pledged last year. they are obviously knocking on doors and chasing up the outstanding funds, because it's all very well pledging the money, but the u.n. needs the cash in hand, to buy emergency
5:05 am
relief supply, to buy food aid to give to the syrians, a major challenge that the u.s. face, and was touched on by secretary of state john kerry and ban ki-moon is it's difficult to get aid through when the syrian regime is not allowing the aid to get through. there's a lot of besieged towns and cities that the regime is preventing aid from getting through. >> john kerry appealed, accusing the syrian regime of using the civilians as pawns and appealed for them to allow the aid to get through. >> bernard smith, thank you for that, in kuwait city there. >> well, more many syrian refugees financial help will come too late. zeina khodr met some of the syrians in lebanon in need of international help. >> it is a heavy burden for this 14-year-old girl. she is trapped. she is a refugee from syria.

5:07 am
son who helps a mechanic barely makes enough to buy food. >> this is a constant story. they barely survive out help and humanitarian efforts cannot reach all those that need hep. >> lebanon host over 1 million syrians. not all are registered with the united nations which means they are not register for aid. >> translation: i want to register with the u.n. they tell me i can work and find a job. but i cannot. >> aide agencies call the syrian crisis a tragedy. and for this girl it's one tragedy after another. she manages to smile when she remembers the man she was supposed to spend her life with. her 22-year-old cousins died
5:08 am
fighting last year. >> translation: my life is destroyed. i don't want to marry him. if i do my family can stay in this house. >> this young lady feels exploited, but it is a sacrifice she and her family has to make. >> voting in egypt is underway for the second and final day of a new constitution. this is the scene as people queued at polling stations. protesters were angry over the draft constitution. let's look at the numbers in this referendum. nearly 53 million people are able to vote. there are about 15,000 judges handling the exercise. and 160,000 police and military personnel are deployed across egypt to ensure is a peaceful referendum. as we heard, there has been
5:09 am
violence. >> cairo producers and correspondent have been arrested. we are unable to report from the location. but we have the developments being monitored from the egypt desk here. >> we've been trying to get an idea of turn out. so far we are finding conflicting - basically reports coming out of egypt. polling on the second day, wednesday, and we are hearing from the interim prime minister who has been saying he believes 55% of those out voting are women. 45% are male. these are reports from the various judges over looking the polling. some say 48% turn out. some say 20%. it may be a reflection as to how strong the muslim brotherhood are. they say they are not turning out because they are boycotting the process. >> we have pictures of ibrahim
5:10 am
in cairo, coming out saying the atmosphere is different to the earlier elections, saying that some tried to disrupt the process, but security forces will deal with it. they are monitoring the event and there has been no major incidents. >> we have seen interesting pictures for a newspaper website. they are showing pictures of a molotov cocktail, glass bottles with fuel and a rag. they are saying security is saying that they picked them up from an 18-year-old that was carrying them in the center of cairo. they were going to use them to disrupt the process. there have been protests in different parts of the country. we are getting new pictures where a man is standing with a loud hailer saying no to the constitution, in front of a polling station. anyone holding four fingers up

5:13 am
there's not enough international monitors. we are talking about 10,000 poling stations and a small number of international observers. if the government want to manipulate the figures, it will be hard to know for sure. what about western observers. they are here to look at the vote to see how the vote is going, to see whether it's a legitimate vote. there has been quite a few problems. there has been violence, no campaigners arrested. what are we to make of this vote? >> it's clear it is not a free and fair vote. even people hanging up no posters are being arrested. if people are afraid and intimidated where they don't feel comfortable voting no, that casts doubt over the results and whether they are truly representative. at the end of the day we know that this
5:14 am
referendum is going to pass. in a way it has to parks and i think we have to age that there is mass popular support behind general abdul fatah al-sisi. many, many egyptians feel very passionately about him and his potential candidacy. this is not about a referendum, but the rise of general abdul fatah al-sisi to the presidency. >> it could be the next step. thank you very much for that. >> now more than 30 international media organizations issued a statement calling for the release of five al jazeera jourmists detained in europe. producers mohamed fadel fahmy, baher mohamed and peter greste are accused of spreading lies harmful to state security and joining a terrorist group. al jazeera says the allegations are fabricated. the other two are from our

some of the companies providing limited access have ancillary businesses, a lot of different networks, and they don't want to have competitors have videos out there available for you to watch through the internet. like on youtube. that's the kind of thing you may see is when you stream competing programs through the internet it may be slowed down to the point where it's unwatchable. >> that can affect youtube and netflix. >> or al jazeera. if they don't want people to watch news programs, they can slow it down to the point where you change the channel or watch something else. >> it seems a bizarre counterproductive decision. would you have companies trying to block each other and slow each other down. does that make the situation worst for everyone. >> they are trying to create a closed loan. comcast bought n.b.c. universals
