northern syria caught in the middle of fighting between turkish forces and kurdish fighters. this does stops here. a show of unity kenya's president and main opposition leader puts aside their differences to heal the country's political divisions. pharmaceutical exactly of one of the most hated man in america finds out his fate for defrauding investors. donald trump says a deal between the u.s. and north korea on its nuclear program is very much in the making and the tweet he says if completed the agreement will be quote a very good one for the world the white house says there will be no preconditions to trump meeting the leader kim jong il trump spoke earlier with chinese leader xi jinping by phone both agreed to continue sanctions until north korea takes steps to
end its nuclear program trump plans to meet kim by in may mike hanna has more from washington d.c. . it appeared that the u.s. had introduced new preconditions when the press secretary said that the meeting would not take place unless north korea provided strong guarantees and took strong steps to indicate the authenticity of its position however subsequently administration officials said that mr sanders was not introducing new preconditions they said she was indeed emphasizing the consequences should north korea continue or resume nuclear or missile testing or interfere with the joint military exercises taking place between the u.s. and south korea but this confusion underscores the developments that have occurred with president trump leaping headfirst into a potential face to face negotiation many expressing concern that negotiations such
as these begin from the bottom up that the face to face meeting between leaders comes at the end of a process not at the very beginning in addition some experts point out the north koreans have had decades of negotiating deals with various states the trumpet ministration new to the game they going to be at a disadvantage in any negotiation with the north koreans should it take place from the very beginning now ariel cohen is a senior fellow at the atlantic council a part of political policy think tank he says there are two possible reasons why north korea is asked to meet dan trump. clearly north korea is not asking for this meeting because it's doing well it's not the hundreds of thousands of north korean workers which were earning money for the regime almost like a slave labor throughout europe in the middle east are being kicked out the
sanctions are getting tighter china is participating so the regime is hurting and that's why most probably they're asking for negotiations of course there's another explanation and that is that. it's just grabbing time to launch yet another more powerful missile with a more powerful bomb so the regime should be giving concessions to the trumpet ministration such as shutting down its nuclear weapons program five civilians have been killed in attacks by syrian government forces in parts of east of the vault on friday and they'd convoy crossed into the rebel held enclave bringing much needed food despite heavy fighting close to relief workers the delivery includes supplies that didn't reach the area on monday when a convoy retreated because of renewed violence the syrian rebel group army of islam has agreed to release fight is being held as prisoners in the east in the halter syrian state television showed thirteen fighters from the group formerly known as

to distribute its boxes to date here has been the scene for a while in a small building a makeshift doctor's office treating a lot of minor injuries anything serious in the transfer to turkey for further treatment. for some who knew nothing but war. it's a new and frightening experience. then it was time to hand out the aid but i am an animal family's name was called and someone stepped forward some merely tall enough to carry it home the people are standing here waiting patiently for the aid to be handed out that is they say they're waiting long enough for the aid to rival but they don't mind waiting that little bit longer. each box is all in sugar and flour and sanitary products enough to last the family three weeks one. hundred of them an hour since the f.s.a. came we are receiving aid it is enough for us it's enough six years we lived under the y.p. no one the aid material should be
a little bit more because of the number of people here and the number of people in those families some of them received aid but one or two boxes are not enough for one family because they're all gathered in one house the turkish red crescent says it's doing what you can with what it has. up to but we came to the area yesterday. and assess the needs of the village residents who are prepared food and hygenic material for everyone. every so often the ground shakes at the sound of artillery fire the big guns pointed so in support of the ongoing military operation the children told me they don't like the noise they may have grown up with the war but it's something they will never get used to. alan fischer al-jazeera their balut northern city of. kenya's president and main opposition leader have promised to begin a process of reconciliation they met for the first time since last year's disputed election which was followed by violence catherine sawyer reports. a

i mean remember and i was in a remember when i became governor i'm going to be an interim member when i'm not governor i'm sure there's an array members that agree with the bills and they don't agree with this bill. the you know but the way that i think about it i'm going to do what i think are common sense solutions commonsense things that the father is a grandfather the governor is is we need to have offers for schools we need to harden or we need more mental health counseling we need to make sure people that are going to do harm and think about we know we the people talking i mean we know we know they're out there talking we need to do something about it and and we need to take all these all of us everybody needs to take this seriously when somebody is threatening people holiday co-chairwoman of women against gun violence she says the n.r.a. could use the new florida law is to push its agenda for getting more guns into schools. we're very concerned about this law being passed because of course it has a kickback in it for the n.r.a. in that they want to arm school personnel so i don't know exactly what they mean by
that is that the lunch lady is at the coaches either way in a state where stand your ground is legal that means that if any of this school of the school personnel is says that they feel threatened by a student they can shoot to kill and legally get away with murder what we've seen in america before with our youth movements is that like during the vietnam war these young kids were seeing their friends come home in caskets and they said enough and now they're seeing their friends being carried out of their schools in body bags and whereas the rest of us in america not me personally but many people have sort of this this cycle of learned helplessness we've seen the mass shootings the thoughts and prayers. the got the call for new gun laws and then nothing happens and we just sort of gotten used to the fact that the n.r.a.
gets to control everything and dictate policy from the white house but now these students are saying they don't have a learned helplessness response they're seeing this their friends are being gunned down and they're saying no we're not going to take it we're going to change this we're the future we're tomorrow and we're going to make this happen. the u.n. has one two million children are at risk of dying of starvation in a democratic republic of congo aid agencies say years of conflict and instability of created one of the world's most complex humanitarian crises and it's getting worse when the hawk starr reports. this child is part of a great humanitarian crisis one of two million children at risk of dying from mt nutrition in the castle region in the democratic republic of congo. intercommunal conflicts have been escalating here since two thousand and sixteen similar violence across the country has led to more than four point five million people internally

expertise is sort by the human rights council to be treated in this were. hooper and i expect the human rights council to respond accordingly and really makes one believe that the president of the philippines needs to submit himself to some sort of psychiatric evaluation this sort of this this sort of common reading is unacceptable to me that and that has more now from minute or two. when president through the good the churchill was sworn in in two thousand and sixteen he promised so usher in a new era of peace between the philippine government and members of the communist party of the philippines he promised to end a five year conflict in the country he released members of the communist movement and even appointed some of them within his cabinet but months of attempts and failure at negotiations and skirmishes between the philippine army and members of
the armed wing called the new people's army has led to this deterrent to says the new people's army together with some other members of the national democratic front he says are there and this intended to destroy quote unquote his country and so the department of justice has submitted to a court a list of what it seeks to tag as terrorists this includes members of the new people's army but it also includes activists former priests and former politicians and even members of the united nations human rights organisations and it is something that they say is deeply dangerous they say president of the good that there jazz the makings of a dictator and they say that using the word terrorist is irresponsible malicious and downright dangerous police in sri lanka are investigating whether the suspected leaders of this week's wave of violence against muslims of foreign funding two people died and more than sixty were arrested in attacks on mosques and muslim
