4:17 pm
retain areas that they have taken. isil fighters have been using the northern syrian border as a lucrative smuggling root. we have more from istanbul. >> the turkey authorities are much more reticent to talk about military matters than the u.s. we understand that the area that we're talking about is 98 kilometers west of the euphrates. it is perhaps the week link along syria's border with turkey. turkey has for quite a while worked to strengthen its border. it's much harder to come and go than it used to be.
4:18 pm
but it is still possible if you're intent on getting across there. the border area that we're talking about is secured with a mixture of concrete blast walls, trenches, fencing, and patrolling. it's not a particularly arduous difficult terrain to get through. it's not mountainous. it's fairly flat and hilly in parts, so we understand that the work that will be going on there will be to strengthen already-existing measures t of people crossing the border. >> yemen's president comes back to his country for a second time since violence broke out in march. also claims that islam phobia is on the rise in the united kingdom. china's football with a warm welcome in their world cup

4:23 pm
in danger. they have groups of young men and women to protect the al-aqsa mosque and the complex surrounding it in occupied east jerusalem. but israeli leaders claim the movement is, in fact, inciting and spreading rumors that the israeli government wants to change the status quo at the al-aqsa mount or the temple as jews refer to it. the palestinian angler of what they see as continuous provocation by far right jewish groups who have recently reach access to the compound. the leader of the movement was arrested and then released a few hours later. he does face jail time from a previous conviction where he was found guilty of ensitement. >> a number of muslims in the u.k. has gone up according to a
4:24 pm
new report. the study by the human rights commission found anti-muslim discrimination in the past five years. the complaints range from negative stereotyping to verbal and physical abuse. well, head of advocacy as the islamic human rights commission, who wrote that report, he's in studio right now. the report in the headlines saying that britain is sub jacketing it's muslims to ever increasing levels of oppression. i think some would be surprised by that because in europe the u.k. is thought to be one of the most accepting societies. >> you really can't make comparison with europe because the language is very different. it's very much assimilation in the u.k. it's slightly more different. that's one issue. the other issue you can't ignore the lived experience of muslims on the ground. some people might perceive
4:25 pm
europe being hasher towards muslims because of the rhetoric out there, but the u.k. in its own way the media and politicians are doing their own anti-muslim rhetoric, and it is filtering down to the ground, and it is being felt by muslims. >> it's quite ditch, isn't it, the politicians, isn't it, to try to strike the right balance to being fair and equal to all members in society of the united kingdom and focusing and protecting its citizens. you feel that the balance is not right at the moment. >> this is one of the things that keeps coming up today that is quite difficult. actually it's not all that difficult. yes there are criminal elements within society, but you do not blame the whole of the community. if this was done with any other community quite rightly we would identify it as racism, but for some reason when it comes to the muslim community we keep coming back to the muslim must take responsibility, dealing with the
4:26 pm
individuals within the community and the community some how is harboring or intrinsically violent community. it is recognizing there is a problem in the language being used, and separating that from those criminal elements and discussing them how they should be. they are criminals and they should be treated as such. >> any right-thinking members of society would never say the muslim society is completely responsible for the elements in that society. but for whatever reason, they don't come forward often enough to report people they're worried about within that community. is that a wrong perception? >> again, i would say yes. >> whenever these atrocities take place, they come out and condemn it. yet it seems we can't do enough.
4:27 pm
the reality is that our voices aren't being heard. the voices which are saying the muslims are problematic, they're not condemning this, and they themselves are encouraging this, they are the one who is are getting the air time. but the communities are not getting-- >> how do we improve that, then? >> the first is to recognize of negative language and it's impact. and unless and until people understand that this language being used from top down is what filters down on to street-level discrimination, and we're not going to see a shift or change in attitudes. >> are you optimistic, though, about the way britain will move forward? i spoke wit in another interview that the u.k. is regard as being very multi integrated and. >> i would love to say yes.
4:28 pm
i was born in this country. i want to live in this country. i want to be part of its society, but as part of the government's policies i don't see a change in the near future. it's not just about long, but the policies, the counter terrorism policies. policing the muslims constantly. >> but to be fair to the government, the government would be criticized if it was not seen to take proactive action especially in light of what is happening in paris. >> sure, terrorism needs to be dealt with, but you don't deal with terrorism by criminalizing the whole community. you only ends up marginalizing that community and pushing them away. they want to be part of the solution to terrorism. >> really good to get your thoughts. thank you. >> thank you. >> police are accused of

4:33 pm
has issued for the frenchman who has been living in brussels in a community home to many muslims. >> the community is targeted. a forest of satellite issues crowd the scare in front of the town hall. it appears a deeply surreal experience for the residents here. >> we're being confronted by a new problem. the tactics of daesh. they can brainwash young people. we've seen how they do it on social media. we've seen how the mosques are blamed, but it's not coming from there. we have 21 mosques here, it's true, but those who are radicalized are radicalized over the internet. >> this man is still on the run
4:34 pm
despite a massive effort by the police to track him down. the house raid on monday now stands empty and boarded up. neighborhoods decline to be interviewed. the manhunt involved in the paris attacks have moved elsewhere, but the scars remain. >> the mood here somewhat strange there is amusement among the younger generation. there are some who laugh and joke for the cameras, but most are deeply irritated at the presence of the media complaining we're driving away the customers. and underneath it all a deep uncertainty of what the future holds here. >> most worryingly the 500 isil fighters who have originated from belgium, 48 of those came from this neighborhood. tough talk about cleaning up and
4:35 pm
are welcomed by this resident. >> i agree they have to clean out the bad people. that would be good for my children too because we have to live here. i'm with them. they have to take out the bad guys. >> but after apologizes has spent more than 30 years working with under privileged youth, he said its historytercal to call the area a hotbed of radical islam. >> it's not the right way of speaking to say that now we'll come, and we'll clean it up. saying things like that you're only confirming the young guys already believe. that they are. >> it's a challenge bo for both community and authorities. what happens next depends on if the community feels it's being punished for the crimes from
4:36 pm
within it. >> and with me, a senior lecturer at the university of exetor. thank you for coming. the news lines are that the russian president vladimir putin has reached out to france and wants more coordination and action taken against isil. your thoughts on where you think this movement is heading? >> i think it will lead to more coordination in terms of airstrikes and some special forces operations at some point or another. we had a 60-state coalition striking isis. we had the russians also striking isis but the focus was on the syrian rebel groups and less so on isis. now they will have on this priority list give what happened in sinai for the air crash.
4:37 pm
they have more interest now to corroborate and undermine the organization. >> is president assad in a much stronger position than he was before? >> he is in a stronger position. however, he still has to deal with a lot of outcry and international community. because they probably killed multi play by ten or 20 the number of victims that he killed compared to i.s. however, he did not attack paris and he did not drop airplanes in moscow. so the immediate threat for society and the russians is i.s. >> isil has taken the actual civil war that is happening in syria? >> containing it, degrading it, and destroying it eventually is the main issue. the question is how. we've been striking with airstrikes now for a year. there has been some equipping
4:38 pm
and training forces in iraq and in syria. it did contain the organization to a certain degree because of these airstrikes. the organization is not in damascus, it has been on baghdad. but it's still far from being defeated. this is where you have presentation, the former british this should be a campaign. it's not counter terrorism operation, this is an enemy that has artillery, it has tanks, and controls land and intends to defend it. >> and trained people. some came from the iraqi army. >> not just that, we have insurgent who is have been fighting for the best army in the world, the american army, and this is an experience in warfare.
4:39 pm
this is effective of individuals. with its tanks and artillery and able to run a protostate institution at the same time which is a very unique nature, very different animal from the terrorist organization. this is something much more complex. 10% in muscle in mosul was 20 to 1 isis fight. there is a puzzle of how to defeat it, and ultimately you have to deal with the environment that produce it is as well. the organization was defeated in 2007. it was defeated but it was defeated because 150,000
4:40 pm
american soldiers that were there during the surge, and because of an uprising that happened against it in the sunni areas, so around more than 60,000 arabs sunni tribesmen were also against it. that then the resources were much less than what we have now. less than 10% of what we have now. ultimately you need forces on the ground and this is a very problematic question for the western viewers. >> thank you very much for coming in. thank you. >> thank you. >> protesters have voiced their anger against barack obama as he arrived for the apex summit in the philippines. chinese' president xi jinping is also in the area. and he boycott the summit due to territorial dispute in the south china sea.

[ sobbing ]
4:43 pm
>> for months the authorities had assured the family that his body was in the morgue waiting for tests to find out who kidnapped and killed them. only when the family pressured them that they finally admitted the truth. >> now more families are wondering if their loved ones could also be in this pit. menu rights activists told us that authorities have not solved a single case. >> there is an attitude of complicit, impunity and corruption. the only thing that provoke is that crimes against the people of morales continue. >> it is legal for mexican authorities to use mass graves to make space in their morgues,
4:44 pm
but only after the families of the dead are informed when possible, and deaths are first investigated. that did not happen here. according to state attorney adults al jazeera had access to. they showed that several bodies were dumped in the pit without investigation or identification. more than 100 bodies are still in this mass grave, and it's a potent symbol of how authorities all over the country seek to bury cases rather than investigate them. an under pressure state attorney's office first admitted it was an illicit grave and then changed their story. we asked them why, and we only got this repeated line. >> we're not talking about an illicit grave, just a common one. if there are irregularities we'll take the investigation to wherever it needs to go. >> words that ring holy for this family. at least they've now been able to give him a decent burial. many other relatives of

4:47 pm
the emoji? >> the people of the world. they use them. they've become incredibly popular. maybe not surprisingly they make up the text communications more powerful, they're fun, and they help--they help give intoe nation to text township messages. the reflection that people have in their voice, facial expressions, and all of that is missing in short form text in information. if you send someone a loved one a message, you could say you're and an idiot, and said it in an enduring way. and send the emoji to make it fun and uplifting. >> i guess because i work with words i prefer the old fashioned words. but on the international level you don't need to speak different languages to use them.

4:49 pm
david cameron, hillary clinton. >> they're just trying to look cool with the kids. >> that may be, but that's still a valid reason for using them, for sure. yes, everybody is using them. some more reluctantly. >> yes, i have never used an emoji yet, and my latest ipad came up with an emoji on the front screen and i was really upset with that. where does it go from here? how much further does it have to go? how many characters do we have now? >> we've got just over a thousand. the orgy mow original--the original emoj emoji, they look very different from the emoji from today. they were very crude. they were designed originally to be used on pages in the '90s. they've evolved already, and they're evolving still. the latest is the apple
