been fair, and the calls for equality isn't seem fair. a top prosecutor, is asking for an investigation that yemen knew about a suicide attack before it happen. a car bomb exploded. a al-qaeda informant said he warned security agencies before the attack and, he said he was ignored. spain closed the case in 2011 when yemen deny provide the information it asked for. joins us here on the set. good to have you with us, what this operative told them- he was a al-qaeda operative. and in 2006 he was sent back after a brief arrest, he was sent to yemen and, what he alleges is that during his work
11:09 am
after that, he warned of several attacks, two attacks in particular, this one in july, and he warned about it several times and the government did nothing. and same happened again the following year, in september 2008 during an assault on the u.s. embassy which according to him, he had warned about three months before. again, the government did nothing. they are going to to investigate again, who are they going to investigate. well, in this case, because of the information of our source the judiciariry have asked the police to investigate these allegations and the credibility of them, so they'll be looking into whether what he says is credible, and, they will most likely want to speak with him. he has said that he's willing to

11:11 am
korea off their travel list because of murs. and many say they fear for their lives. we have money. and the two bidding cities state their cases for hosting the 2022 winter olympics. iraq question forces have opened supply lines, to the oil refinery despite the progress, the pen that gone is not ready to claim it under iraqi control and isil continues to make advances in other parts of the country, it has taken ramadi, and thousands have been
11:12 am
displaced and they've been trying to tariq control. and, they also took minavah. they made advances in north and, kurdish forces, have held back isil from taking more areas. it has forced isil to retreat, including the strategic city of tikrit. over a year ago, when i was sill attacked mosul and, the army retreated will and why the group is proving so hard to defeat. the speed with which they took such huge parts of iraq surprised many, the army ran. in less than 4 hours, the city was under their black flag and the impact was felt across iraq.
11:13 am
it was a huge shock to the government and its people when i was sill took mosul and exposed a lack of trust between the people and the government. that hasn't changed even with a new government. in the immediate aftermath they began to blame the former prime minister, about the policies. policies that the next prime minister has found difficult to remove despite promising to do so. he tried to control the power and that alienated many people including the sunni community. he lacks power because he has been left with many problems including massive budget deficit and powerful lobbies and it's going to be tough to run things around. the iraqi army, and militia fighting about them having a
11:14 am
tough time. when the capital of anbar fell to the radical group in may, it exposed how tough it is. there is a lack of iraqi command and control, we don't have discipline within the ranks, and reinforce men and strategy, to win and, we need better co-organization over airstrikes. four months is a significant time-frame for isil, they're using it to remain, and expand their territory. there are others that say they're just taking advantage after disjointed strategy. here in baghdad, people are worried that the current way of dealing with issel just isn't working. syria is a concern because they can use it as a base and sen reinforcements into iraq. isil will remain a problem in iraq.
11:15 am
now, more on this, and good to have this. u.s. a. has no complete strategy on isil. and it was caught offguard, when i was sill took over most sell. amazing, and, president barak obama says these things in public. he said that a couple years ago when he was asked about syria and, he was falling apart. and he said we don't have a strategy and everybody was astonished and how could the united states not have a strategy having seeing things devolve. well, same thing unlike syria iraq is an american issue. it was the american invasion of iraq 12 years that created this dim minnation of the country the break of the country. so, you would expect that the
11:16 am
united states have been training iraqis and second, as you said, over the last year, they have been talking about training and we haven't seen a lot of that. what president barak obama is saying, it's not completed because iraqi partners are not giving us the right guarantees, and effort, and, president barak obama is putting the ball in the iraqi corner saying it's their responsibility. is that fair. some to degree it is and some not. so, let's look at this picture, in a more global way in iraq, and the united states what is solution? we're been talking about it here for 5 years and now everybody talks about it. we know that the government needs to recharter the sunni majority, and, the united states will come together, and against
11:17 am
isil succeeds and everyone knows it. is there a will to do that? is there the leadership do that? there is no american leader ship and, there's no iraqi will because clearly they find it very hard not to reconcile, they need someone from the outside and, it would be the americans and u.n., just like they did in libya. we're not seeing that. it would seem that those problems are so vast, that they're felt to be insurmountable. can it not perhaps be taken apart, and look at at at mosul and that is one city and get it back. the problem is that, is they just tried that, and they failed. and when they succeeded in particular create they failed in ramadi. and it is necessary in the
11:18 am
short-term. perhaps the other way of looking at it, not discounting, is the macro. the dealing with the mess so, the midway and everything is enter connected. the maac co way there's the problem, and iraq and syria and lebanon and it requires real leadership because everyone knows that isil, is not only there, in syria and also need to address that question. and you need leadership on the part of the region, and those who intervened in the region. that would be u.n., and we haven't seen that at all. pretty big issue. thank you. now, teenage girls abducted by isil being sold in slave
11:19 am
markets. girls who escaped. she says in markets girls can be traded for as little as a pack of cigarettes and now, they tell travel there to see how they can help the victims. south korea has another death from murs. and now 7 are dead. the defense ministry have started checking visitors, entering their building. more than 2,000 people have been quarantined. it's the largest since saudi arabia and it's affecting the economy. it's a lovely day, one of the fanciest districts and, we come here, for a walk and usually, we will be joined by plenty of well to do residents and foreigners as well, and, we

11:26 am
in a sense it is these narrow alloways that are protecting the village, part is owned by developers and construction is impossible as there's no way for vehicles to get through. and the government has already approved planning documents and the buildings are a constant reminder that development may not be far away. please stay with us here, still ahead. in an election year, argentina's pow movement is in dispute. we visit the largest rain forest six months after an oil tanker was here. mountain biking is hitting new heights

11:29 am
hello again here's our top stories, u.n. says more than
11:30 am
100,000 migrants have entered europe by sea and almost all of them italy and greece. egypt shant court has sentenced, 11 to death from the biggest football riot, many were crushed to death and victims were throne, and, it was the deadliest. and top prosecutor has asked for an investigation that yemen knew about an attack before it happened. there was a car bomb. al-qaeda informant said he warned them before the attack, and he was ignored. h.s. cb has announced the
11:31 am
cutting of jobs. it plans to refocus on asia, and cut annual costs up to $5 billion and considering moving its headquarters out of london, and, reducing its invest mens and pulling out of turkey and brazil. now, a common lecturer. and good to have you with us, why are we seeing these massive cuts? well 9,000 job losses in the u.k., and, as you said, this is a part of a more global strategy, and the plan is to shift the headquarters back to asia, this is as strategy which has been announced because of that. and. what they are doing in the uk is trying to move this move, to
11:32 am
blame the bank heavy, for its problems in terms of the prophet. and as we all know, in fact, the bank heavy, which is small tax on the total balance sheets of the debt, is really not the biggest problem that he have. they face fines and compensations that they have to play because of criminal and illegal activity because of money-laundering and financial markets, and turning around and blaming this in the case of the u.k. is really rather opportunistic. is this going going to benefit it? the restructuring for the u.k., this is a global restructuring but for the uk it's not a bad thing. the uk is relying far too much
11:33 am
anyway, and moving away from just having very large bank might be in the end a good thing. so the question, that is on the mind is how can they convince hsbc to stay, and the actual question should be, how can he convince them to actually pay its tax to the u.k.? and pulling out of countries like turkey, and brazil, what does it say? it's refocusing to asia. well it's pulling out that's going to be mainly, investment banking, in terms of retail banging, same thing is true for u.k., it's hard to pull out all of that activity, since it is dependent on your local
11:34 am
branch, for your activity, there will be stay within the country although, particularly in the u.k. the retail arm all of these, pieces, will be upset because they have very little to do with the illegal activity of the bank. eva, thank you for joining us. now, the government in libya has rejected a proposal to form a government. it's been trying to reach a deal, and now the details. libya's rival facts -- faction is then pressure for a
11:35 am
national unity government based in tripoli and it recognizes the house of representatives as the legitimate body. create a council of state to serve as the highest body with a power to resolve dismoots and creates a national army, and calls for army of militia a cease fire and a constitution. they have the right on you that you save your country and people from conflict. but, the country's rival factions remain skeptical they each have their own government and, armies and the government
11:36 am
has the back of the u.n. not waiting for the answer now and after each of the stakeholders has had time for council station. we will do our best to bring our country out of the crisis and, we'll study this draft and we hope that this draft will be the last one. this is the man at the center of libya's political divide. the general is the most powerful military man. last year he launched operation dignity a major military offensive and backed by the tripoli based congress. for tripoli will only happen if it is sacked by government and most of those in the east are loyal to him and they say any move against their leader will be met by force.

11:38 am
this is a show of force by argentina's powerful truck-driver's union. they held their own. they're out again, along with bus and train drivers and port and airport workers bringing argentina to a standstill. we are holding the strike with hope that it will generate expectation and, ab show to the government that we're not prepared to surrender and, we'll keep fighting for what's right. however many trade unions remain loyal to the president. sailing things aren't that bad and the problems that they do have are not the government's fault. we believe that to hole this strike is to give or try to give the workers over to those who want to return to the old liberal politics. with presidential elections
11:39 am
four months away, there are demon sprayings almost everyday. battling for influwins and a share of decreasing funds. the party in power was built with the backing of the workers and, stayed in power by a trade union and now with inflation and, job insecurity rising, they find themselves in conflict. instead it will be left to the electorates to make sense, and the relationship with the government. when there's inflation, the unions want their salaries to go up and you have this conflict going on, all the time. stop and go policy is where you turn to this group, and so nobody is quite happy. the uncertainty is the election's approach, argentina will be faced with more strikes
11:40 am

11:42 am
carrying fertilizer, sank. the damage is yet to be areceive. but, they are dismissed by ship owners,. i want to say this, with all due respect, what do these people do? they just protestify rallies, about the environment and, give speeches and, they have very nice cars and very nice houses. i don't know who is giving them the money. while commercial traffic no's through, they are no longer allowed access, the government has banned fishing. because of concerns about overfishing. they were among the first to join the cleanup after the december spill eager to save their waters. six months on, he doesn't see much after future for him in the rain forest which is not just the source of his life, but
