6:02 am
i.s.i.l. earlier this month the u.s. announced 100 troops would be sent to iraq. let's get more. let's go to northern iraq. while we are talking about ramadi here, let's remind the audience about the significance of ramadi. >> it's the biggest in the key cities before 2003, the american occupation. it's a heartland of the sunni community of iraq, and it's really a big trading post swg. it threads into the road into
6:03 am
syria. >> it was seen as a very big defeat. >> a lot of the soounry hoo lot were aligned. allowing us to take on i.s.i.l., giving us the armed. letting us stall. they relied on the reiki security forces. this is why the battle took so long. the sunni tribal fighters there. there has been success. there was military base: the summit with the push into ramadi. >> shelling on troops, and so far we have seen 27 people killed.
6:04 am
this fight is by no means over, but it is an important city in the fight against i.s.i.l. it will be a big defeat and means i.s.i.l. are losing more territory here. the u.s. is offering military advise. if haider al-abadi wants it he will take up the offers. and why the defense secretary made the comments. particularly in the help. and he been saying to media channels. to step up their efforts.
6:05 am
it's very clear. haider al-abadi has a lot of problems. the idea of troops on the ground is one that will be counterproductive. because i.s.i.l. want u.s. troops on the ground here in iraq. for them it means that they get a chance to fight them on the ground, and recruitment. we saw this in 2006, seven and eight. comments - i have been speaking to people throughout the day. comments are more for a domestic audience. playing the role that americans are playing in iraq, to americans, rather than a formal offer made no prime minister haider al-abadi. >> imran khan speaking to us from erbil. gulf leaders reviewed their permission, they had no place in

the country's future. a leader has been discussing the war. it's the opposition group. so that a new civil state. the summit. >> translation: syrian opposition aims at unifying the opposition, fitting the position when it comes to negotiations and talks based on the geneva one, and that might lead to the establishment of authority. temporary authority that will pave the way for new constitution and the future in
6:07 am
syria with no place at all for bashar al-assad. >> let's get more of an insight who is often and i want to the ask one question. it's very strong words about. are all the members on board. >> we have seen the minister, the only foreign minister visiting the mosque a couple of months ago. i'm not sure about the position to be honest. i think the rest of the g.c.c. countries have no place in the future of syria. mainly because it's proven that they cannot do it first. and that's no longer acceptable
6:08 am
for the biggest part of the syrian people after what happened over the past five years. i think that is the position of saudi arabia, and the position of the other countries. what about the position of the syrian opposition groups, political and armed groups that are meeting. are they able to agree on where bashar al-assad stands. and they have come close to agree on a united political vision, in order to have a need - needing a roadmap from syria. there are a few other details that need to be sorted out in this meeting. and they have come close to agree on the future. most of them leave it must leave, but when is the question. at the beginning or later on.
6:09 am
the the devil is in detail. do you think there's the same disparity when it comes to yemen. and how to deal with houthi rebels. >> syria and yemen prove that these are the two biggest challenges facing the g.c.c. countries, it's no less complicated than the conflict in syria. here, we have the g.c.c. countries on board. and qatar in the complex. now we have come to the conclusion. we may need to try the diplomacy in order to solve the problem. in the whole region, it's something that is impossible to obviously problems. the war in syria is going on for
6:10 am
about five years. in yemen we are almost a year into the conflict. they are going above that. and i think the geneva process might well start soon, and we hope that this will lead somehow to operate the constitution. thank you for sharing your insight. analyst at the doha institute now, the numbers killed in a taliban attack rose to more than 70, a gun battle lasting 24 hours. hostages died. coinciding calling from a resumption of peace talks. the government launched how the

6:16 am
welcome back, a quick recap. 27 soldiers have been killed in fighting. the armed group captures the
6:17 am
city in main. the united states offered to send personnel and equipment to help forces retake ramadi. gulf leaders renewed their position that syrian leader bashar al-assad has no place in the future. saudi arabians future says they hope that they will reunify the position to pave the way for a new state a taliban attack on kandahar airport killed 70 people. the government is calling on people to mediate peace talks with the armed group. >> in paris, politicians and environmentalists are debating a shorter draft of the u.n. backed agreement. tomorrow is the last day of negotiations for a deal setting legally binding agreements. a climate change expert from columbia joins me from those talks in paris. thank you for being with us.
6:18 am
you have seen this draft. are you satisfied with what you've seen? >> i don't think anybody's satisfied, although everyone is working very, very hard. >> why, then, do you think there is dissatisfaction at this late stage. surely there's only one more day left for everyone to get on board. tell us what are the obstacles faced by those who are trying to agree to some sort of consensus? >> the main obstack , and there is one, is to agree on mandatory limits, without which there is no treaty, and the carbon market that is so important according to business and environmentalists is not going to point either. we need mandatory limits, and
6:19 am
nothing in the current draft vass that issue. it's been said that the text has been watered down. is it fair so say then that this conference is not going to live up to any of its promises. >> unfortunately i think it was fair to say, although i have to add immediately, that i perceive that the hosts and the nations really are trying hard, with a few exceptions. they don't really want a treaty, but i things the french, europeans and developing nations, they want a treaty. the world realises that this is the last stop before we have a major potentially catastrophic event. give us an idea of who was not playing fair. who does not want to have the
6:20 am
treaty, as you say? well, i think those that don't want the treaty is not because they are many. they don't want to treaty because they don't know how to execute the limits. for example, if you look at india, they are right to say that they needed right to grow, and they need energy for that. what happens is it that the prime minister doesn't think about the technology that would allow the nation to go and limit the missions. they are like to look to justice. no indication of china, we have a similar situation. china wants to do something about the massive environmental problem in our hands. it's complex. they don't know how to do it. and the u.s. had a political, divided situation at home.
6:21 am
it's not that the government didn't want to do it. i think from president obama, he is trying hard because he is politically divided scene, those are the shortcomings of democracy, which is the best political system we know. >> thank you for explaining what the challenges are faced at the cop21 summit. thank you for your time now, 21 police officers have been sacked in the philippines connection with the deadliest attacks on journalists history. 32 reporters and 26 others were shot in the southern province in 2009. a policeman were dismissed for failing to stop the sun of a political warlord and body guards from carrying out the attacks. the latest now from manila. >> reporter: this is the first
6:22 am
time the fam ris of the victims feel they have seen any type of justice. it's been six years since crime was committed, and there were over 100 suspects named in this case. with only one suspect tried in the criminal case in the philippines, that takes 10 years from beginning to end of trial. something like this would take a century going by the average standings of philippine justice system. the president promised there would be a conviction in the case before the end of his term. fortunately that is in six months, and it is not looking likely that there'll be a concrete development towards that end. the main suspect died in detention because of an illness. on top of that many of the other suspects are involved in bail
6:23 am
proceedings, and that is dragging out. it's delaying the actual trial from taking place. many of the victim's families feeling that possibly after this suspension of the police officers, they may not see anything more concrete for years to come. argentina's outgoing president made an address before overturning power. >> a successor will be sworn in on thursday. they have refused to attend an inauguration ceremony. >> translation: these are the greatest things i have given to the argentine people. the empowerment of liberty, rights. thank you for happiness, joy, love. i love you all, you'll be with me forever and know that i will

6:25 am
many are voting for change. there are others supporting the message. >> the election marked the fight between two models. the other with all its problems, social policies and entryingiation are the rest of latin america. we are waiting to see what the next government will do. that depends on the state of the economy. one of the first measures is to liberalize the change rate in argentina. that would cause inflation to spak and that worries that they
6:26 am
won't do anything. it's the former chief of the central bank, and says that the situation is more complicated an the outgoing government would like to admit. >> all the coffers are empty in the argentinian economy. there's no dollars, reserves. if you look at the treasury, it's bigger and bigger. the government will hope the draws, how do you reconstruct the base of supporters. the challenge will be to do it without hurting the vulnerable. >> columbia's government and f.a.r.c. inching closer to a peace deal. they've been talking peace in havana, to bring 50 years of
6:27 am
conflict to an end. f.a.r.c. has 18,000 members and opposes privatizition. 220,000 are believed to have been killed, most civilians. and 7 million people have registered. rare access to one of the biggest camps has been claimed. >> reporter: a rebel f.a.r.c. movement on the move. columbian soldiers a kilometre away. because of fighting they hide. >> we are in a unilateral ceasefire. the military is taking advantage of it. it's rain season, and they halt
6:28 am
armed defensive. with progress in the talks, larger camps are set up deeper where they are preparing for peace. these will be the last days in the jungle, and after decades of fighting they have not won neither have they been defeated. these people have been at war since age 16. they survived bombardment. we are not up in arms because we like it. the government guaranteed our position and that of the poor. >> rebels confined their reviews. >> in 51 years of war, we committed areas, and are ready to take responsibility for them. wish victims of the conflict. as it gets closer, rebels are
6:29 am
reluctant to give up the guns. it's part of a legal party. 3,000 members were murdered by government forces. >> our biggest fear is that the government will not respect the agreement. and have to go back to fighting. >> f.a.r.c. vows to demobilize within 60 days of agreement. those folding out say this does not mean the end of their stlugle. >> it's not how the government thinks we'll integrate and surrender. we'll stick together and continue our fight as a political party. >> reporter: profile how this will happen is unclear. the last major sticking point and shows that slenlsing the guns will be the first step to end this conflict
