staying foreign ministry officials say much of syria is now safe. specifically. which is not the mandate the mandate or at least what they say is that. people. but what what is actually happy happening is much more than that the ministry has now decided to suspend residency applications submitted by u.n.h.c.r. for its staff in the foreign minister is acting in a caretaker capacity but it does belong to the ruling alliance so his decisions could be a sign of future state policy. some officials are using the refugee political capital they play on fears about the impact of the prolonged presence of refugees in the country those officials belong to the pro syrian government camp they want refugee returns to be coordinated with the authorities in damascus as
4:07 am
a first step toward restoring relations with the government. refugees are caught in the middle and what could become a contentious political issue large scale returns gives legitimacy to the syrian government which wants the international community to provide badly needed funds for reconstruction the u.n. insists it does not encourage or discourage returns but it is not organizing them while discussions with damascus continue on safeguards that still need to be put in place. the united nations has warned of massive civilian casualties in yemen if saudi led coalition forces attempt to take the port city of data from the rebels the u.n. says as many as a quarter of a million residents could die if the government forces backed by saudi arabia and the united arab emirates launched an attack or siege within twenty kilometers of the city the data is on the red sea coast and is the main entry point into yemen

and has more on the latest in a series of controversial immigration decisions by the trumpet ministration. this isn't the first time that federal prisons have been used to house immigrant detainees but the scale is different the six hundred will be held for up to one hundred twenty days while immigration authorities find space for them elsewhere prison unions complain that they've not been given enough time to prepare for the influx and civil rights groups are concerned that those simply looking for a better life will be housed with those convicted of federal crimes and the u.s. is notoriously brutal prison system the trouble ministrations new policy of prosecuting and detaining every person crossing the border without papers means space is limited there's been a surge in raids on workplaces in the u.s. those who found a job are being rounded up on mass and it's this policy that's led to the separation of families some six hundred children taken from their parents since may as they await prosecution according to a u.s. senator we are devastating
4:12 am
a generation of children who are being called from their families there will be impacts on educational attainment physical harm and this is an inhumane and cruel policy that that is hurting individuals it's hurting these families and it's hurting our communities and our society the u.n. high commissioner for human rights says such separations are against international law and even president trump says he is unhappy but blames the democrats for not helping policy immigration reform all that well as the broad bill thank you this great border safety and security that is there because i don't like to build that bridge from the first i don't like it i hate it the trumpet when assertion is hoping that the harsh conditions awaiting anyone caught trying to cross the border without documentation will deter migration recent evidence shows that it's not working in april if this year almost fifty one thousand people were detained at the southern border an increase of sixteen thousand from the previous year however
4:13 am
a policy of deterrence is nothing new it was the obama administration that attempted to deter immigrants during a surge of border. crossings often by women and children fleeing instability in central america in twenty fourteen president obama vastly expanded family detentions the detention of parents with their children to try and scare migrants away the six hundred migrant children detained this month will join some ten thousand eight hundred already incarcerated in the u.s. the separation of immigrant children by the trumpet ministration may violate international legal protections for children but it would appear that's exactly the point for the administration in washington she overturned see. five days after. killing at least one hundred nine people guatemalan officials have warned that falling out from the volcano poses a threat to flight authorities are ordering a new round of evacuations with the flames of volcanic material and contaminated water still threatening homes the disaster agency is telling residents of the town

important part of us trying history and here's a photograph of that now long to see east eight hundred sixty eight team a team that was greeted with skepticism and curiosity in england not all of it kind one newspaper of the time described the tourists as a travesty upon cricketing much commentors made about their skin color and physical appearance but out of forty seven games that eight hundred sixty eight team won fourteen last fourteen and drew nineteen just like the australian teams of today they can play star of the team there was an aboriginal all rounder known as jonny mora he bowled something like i think it was nineteen hundred overs on the two hour and took two hundred forty five wickets but he also scored over sixteen hundred runs as well. back then to be able to achieve that you know it takes a very good cricketer to do that this twenty eighteen tour is also a first the first england for the aboriginal women's eleven and all the modern day players admit to feeling a strong sense of history it's such

a great opportunity where they're playing here but it's definitely just amazing to be. have a look at the places those teams played to mating that they actually had a group of people. counting one lakh first ever team to two are out of strike on iraq just to pay part of the script now. i think still in tired black i feel like i'm one of those back in the day. this too or in swallow the young ones to come through in poker. next to. the names of saddam bradman or dennis lillee or matthew hayden may be etched into australian cricketing legend but before all of them came the aboriginal eleven of eight hundred sixty eight paul brennan al-jazeera sussex the celebrity chef and writer and dame has been found dead in his hotel room the sixty one year old was filming in france when his body was discovered police say he took his own life and

here on al-jazeera coming up next we have the siege of cutter ifa. the still waters of doha's west bay lagoon. daily life seemingly undisturbed in qatar's capital. a serenity betraying that this is a nation under siege. on june fifth two thousand and seventeen saudi arabia the united arab emirates bahrain and egypt cut off all diplomatic ties with qatar. accusing it of funding terrorism and from entering
4:22 am
regional instability all land air and ceilings to the country were severed. saudi arabia and bahrain egypt and u.a.e. say their severing diplomatic relations with qatar riyadh a single shot was fired a full blown war of words was engaged. to store the other the most c.e.o. of magic ties or flight accusations and counter-accusations this claim this encounter claims were made by all sides the media served as the main battleground. early on monday the fifth of june two thousand and seventeen behind state television read a statement from its government in them look at the. little mercy and the
4:23 am
ability of her father nala. a short time later saudi arabia followed suit. up our lala cutted the message out well for the model let it. be a so they you know we don't let the u.a.e. and egypt announce they tune we're cutting ties with qatar. the code. ordinated move by the four countries has caused the greatest rift in years between some of the most powerful arab states the largest country is. followed by what it's. see defendant foreign policy as a threat to their narrative to their consensus there were. only one other thing which is totally unacceptable qatar was accused of harboring a multitude of terrorist and sectarian groups creating instability in the region
4:24 am
the restrictions did not only target the qatari government but also its citizens and residents. in the hours that followed a systematic and orchestrated plan of isolation was enacted. the national carrier has declared they would be suspending flights to and from qatar the following day and those from qatar what banned from even transiting through their countries with the exception of egypt the blockading states recalled their own citizens and gave the countries residing and working in their countries fourteen days to leave their territories. the block of four also closed their airspace to qatari aircraft leaving only a small corridor or funneling all their planes in and out of the arabian gulf. at one thirty pm the only land border was closed saudi arabia stopped all movement
4:25 am
of vehicles from its side. trucks carrying food raw materials equipment and medicines could no longer cross into qatar. all vessels destined to or carrying the flag of qatar would not be allowed to call at ports in the u.a.e. . as the severing of ties continued doha released its own statement declaring there is no legitimate justification to cut ties and that the decision is a violation of its sovereignty. concern from allies with vested interests and investments in all the countries involved were quick to react hoping to keep the situation under control and avoid any escalation. the stakes were too high. in sydney australia then u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson addressed the unfolding events and urged restraint
4:26 am
and dialogue we certainly would encourage the parties to sit down together it addresses differences and we think it is important that the g.c.c. remain a unified. the tiny desert country was highly reliant on produce from its neighboring countries and with those imports now blocked qatar needed new supplies. the well maintained relations qatar has put its regional neighbors meant the trade embargoes effects would be soft and seeing an opportunity iran declared that food shipments could be in doha in twelve hours turkey also offered to help however it could. qatar had been thrown a lifeline. doha staunchly disagreed with all the accusations made against it and continue to call for dialogue if there is any sensible argument or sense of an
4:27 am
accusation we are ready to answer but although it's a big accusation without any solid argument we are not that it is ready to onset of this if there is any problem should be solved on the negotiation table butting of the g.c.c. countries together on his highness will coming any positive help to solve this problem. but up to this point the g.c.c. the gulf cooperation council had been able to deescalate the situation she says she was never intended to deal with an act of aggression between one of the constituent you see members this is unprecedented in the extent of the scope of it how it took everybody by surprise kuwait did issue a statement calling for restraint but the six member group had not met and the three g.c.c. states that imposed the blockade were not willing to enter into talks our men and also kuwait i think found it very difficult in the initial stages of the crisis.
4:28 am
you know there may have been some pressure exerted on them to to take sides but i think then it was you know i think even the courts had to quickly realize that they needed some mediator within the region. so we've seen kuwait sort of take on more of that will than than are meant for this crisis but it's also important to to note that this pressure of taking sides extends beyond the gulf region. by nightfall on that first day that instigating nations in saudi arabia the u.a.e. and egypt we're now joined by the mo d. and factions in libya in isolating the tiny gulf nation. on the second day of the crisis the effects were beginning to show. qatari citizens in the blockading countries were making arrangements to vacate and return to their
4:29 am
homeland. qatar's population is made up predominantly of the experts and foreign workers almost ninety percent and could not risk losing its workforce. airlines were struggling to handle the travel restrictions and some grocery stores in the capital were unable to restock their supplies. there was a sense in. many quarters that some sort of action may occur. in recent history there were many signs that qatar was being targeted. this current crisis is not an isolated incident from one thousand nine hundred five up to the present day the dominant team in relations between saudi arabia the u.a.e. and qatar has been one where saudi arabia and the u.a.e. have you as definitely the subordinate actor and the qataris have refused to accept this position in the two thousand when al jazeera was perceived by saudi arabia to be a major thorn in the side diplomatic relations broke in two thousand and two and continued
4:30 am
until two thousand and seven two thousand and eight and then of course you have the more recent crisis in two thousand and fourteen where the u.a.e. saudi arabia and bahrain briefly broke diplomatic relations again in protest of what they view to be this subordinate secondary actor in the region acting above its station and so you have a track record of the gulf members of the current embargo being coalition breaking with qatar over political issues over security issues over the last fifteen years but before the scars could heal the seeds of a new conflict would be. a mere thirteen days before the current crisis began a state run news agency was hacked comments folks we attributed to the qatari m e a were broadcast criticizing u.s. president donald trump and expressing support for iran hamas and israel the government denied that the comments were made and investigations by the f.b.i.
4:31 am
and britain's national crime agency confirmed that senior government officials in the u.a.e. met to discuss an implementor plan to plant a fake news story in qatar as news agency and social media sites the hacking of the q. and a website and may of two thousand and seven is very interesting because on one hand. and you would assume that if the grievances of saudi arabia the u.a.e. and its partners were were foolproof legitimate and unquestioned then why do you need the pretext of you know planting a statement in in the amir is mad to to i guess you could say provide a reason for the subsequent embargo on the other hand when had i was able to show that this was a fake news so to speak it won a lot of support internationally among key allies. to make matters worse for the u.a.e.
4:32 am
a series of leaked emails from their ambassador to the us youssef. revealed a concerted effort to turn the us away from qatar. kuwait that had experienced aggression from its neighbor iraq almost two decades earlier took on the role of mediator urging both sides to open lines of dialogue the current emir of kuwait was the foreign minister of his country when the g.c.c. was founded he hosted the first meeting that led to the formation of the g.c.c. and so for him it's always speed since the crisis last year in any spoken about it extremely personal he has made this a matter of honor for the generation that founded the g.c.c. . emboldening their position saudi arabia and the u.a.e. convince the newly elected us president that their actions were justified. president trump who only ten days earlier was in riyadh tweeted support for the
4:33 am
blockade and joined in accusing qatar of funding radical ideology and extremism. this was in stark contrast to the approach taken by the pentagon on the situation saying the u.s. military is grateful for qatar support of the u.s. army presence in the country and it's enjoying committed. to regional security. in the months that followed the u.s. state department signed two memorandums of understanding with qatar underscoring the ties between the two countries especially the joint efforts to defeat terrorism . in paris saudi arabia's foreign minister. said that the damage caused by economic measures should convince qatar to change its policies we want to see qatar implement the promises it made a few years back with regard to support her extremist groups with regards to its
4:34 am
hostile media with regards to its interference in the affairs of other countries and we have taken this step. with great pain in order to make sure that the turn to stands that these policies are not acceptable not sustainable and that they must change across the gulf states the sanctions and restrictions imposed were now hitting hard and directly affecting individuals and businesses many countries who have family and times in the neighboring countries who are now cut off and banished. in the hospitals and clinics the harsh embargo was now affecting patients and people requiring medicines and treatment. but the citizens and residents in qatar are unified and supportive of a leader and his government within days of the blockade against qatar we saw a huge outpouring of support for the emir and for the qatari state we saw you know
4:35 am
of country flags throughout the streets of doha the images of the amir the blockade in the very sort of sudden and aggressive way that it was imposed galvanized a sense of national identity among countries and in some ways it also improved relations between countries a non-country residence as day to. the crisis continues to turkish president red chip tired addressed foreign ambassadors are shown on reason. it is then headed to trouble your studio to go. there because of the. qatar you nearly trip me up to the moment called little john or me to drink the cotton viewed turds on the soul of our. pubs even missin it if you could turn truckload of it tom all the work the turkish role in relationship
4:36 am
with qatar in this crisis is one of the most important developments over the last year turkey has tried to build up relations who attacked and qatar even before the crisis reciprocated by improving relations with turkey as a check and a balance against the saudis with whom they've had bad relations on many occasions in the last decade and a half. turkey began debating in parliament legislation for increased military cooperation to support qatar. the bill was passed after one hour and two weeks later its troops were deployed to a military base just outside of doha which they had been using to train the country armed forces. on social media people from all sides were making their cases supportive of the blockade and opposed the regional social fabric is the same we have the same family tribes the same people live across all of these states and the people are not very happy what happened to their
4:37 am
brothers and sisters and when they have been cut off and they've been blockaded in the holy mother from other stopping water and food supplies to them and seeing that got i was being bullied by their neighbors so people started to show empathy what we have seen is that there have been repressed by their own government even for showing empathy to. human beings to their people. in the region this is contrary to what we have seen in qatar in qatar you know you have different voices there are people who all are saying things against the government of qatar only its fall a season it is accepted. as the crisis continued both sides made efforts to win over the hearts and minds of the international community the public opinion are aware enough to understand and to differentiate between the time with and the force and the fabricated. qatar's foreign minister met with officials and
4:38 am
leaders addressing the media and stating the case for qatar. as the situation dragged on governments were growing impatient and wanted a quick end to the standoff now that it's been more than two weeks since the embargo started we are mystified that the gulf states have not released to the public nor to the qataris the details about the claims that they are making toward . the more the time goes by the more doubt is raised about the actions taken by saudi arabia and the u.a.e. at this point we are left with one simple question were the actions really about their concerns regarding cutter's alleged support for terrorism or they about the long simmering grievances between and among the g.c.c. countries eighteen days after implementing the blockade for instigating nations presented a list of thirteen demands of qatar to end the crisis they gave
4:39 am
a deadline of ten days to comply with all of the demands which included shutting down the al jazeera network close to the turkish military bases and scaled down times with iran. qatar was expected to sever all alleged ties with the muslim brotherhood and other groups including hezbollah al qaida and i sold the thirteen demands that the courts had issued towards qatar were absolutely unrealistic one of their major demands was for qatar to stop interfering in other nations' affairs and if you look at the list of thirteen demands well that's exactly what they do they interfere in the affairs of the country state. through the kuwaiti intermediary qatar gave its response to the demands of. the deadline passed and qatar had fulfilled none of the thirteen points obviously definitely. a lot except noko let the respect to its sovereignty and independence well of accept. to be able
4:40 am
. to accept and public took up ritual eight to thirteen public like this a forty eight hour extension was given by the blockading for and still qatar refused to bow down the saudis an m.r.i. artie's expressed outrage at qatar willingness to submit and said the failure to comply is a threat to regional security qatar stood firm and replied with offers of dialogue reaffirming their willingness to find a solution through direct talks we believe and we have expressed several times that others willing to enter into dialogue with. with the blockading nations will just respect the international law and respect each other nation being deeply
4:41 am
invested in the g.c.c. since its foundation kuwait timea continued his efforts to bring the parties together to reconcile their differences when he tried to host the first g.c.c. leaders' summit since the crisis began and the only leader of a d.c. nation to turn up with a. not only did the outage refused to turn up for various reasons but on the same day the u.a.e. and saudi arabia announced the launch of a new bilateral organization a saudi u.a.e. organization through which they would deal with all important economic and security issues so not only did they boycott the meeting but they tried to undermine at the same time it would be the shortest g.c.c. summit in history being abandoned after only a few hours. prior to the g.c.c. meeting qatar shake to mean bin hamad el fanny went on a charm offensive promoting qatar and its policies to the world. meeting heads of
4:42 am
state and reaffirming qatar's commitment to peace and stability in the region he cemented times with foreign leaders and in an address to the united nations he turned the charges laid against his country back on the blockading party if you have it. up a foreigner or vetted your shabby guitar all of you has a heart in jail and must come out of all of us to do what is. one to hum so you on your own mobbing it do and let you follow them at i look up a bit to the one for sure to duck. the dough into a bit of an image then you have believe what. the deputy mop of him is c.r.c. is as i think is the law invalid see either. a later however i had a title fight that heard. the amir returned to a hero's welcome thousands lined the roads to greet and applaud the men who had stuck by them and not buckled under pressure.
4:43 am
amla. qatar was riding out the storm it established new trade deals and created alternative shipping and air routes. the blockade is not without impact and although qatar has tremendous wealth to maintain stability it was required to open its coffers injecting almost forty billion dollars into its economy in the first two months of the crisis. the crisis triggered cuts to rethink its sustainability and independence and to set itself up for the future. it built farms and was terra forming its deserts into fertile land. a dairy was set up flying in thousands of cows and producing its own line of products.
4:44 am
just days before the one year anniversary of the blockade qatar's government issued a directive banning all products from the blockading quartet. the new trade links and self-reliance that have developed over the past year meant qatar's decades long dependence on its neighbors for producing goods had been swept away. all sides were desperate to garner support and backing internationally sweeping reforms were seen across the gulf. qatar lifted entry visa restrictions for eighteen countries and began speeding up much needed improvements to its migrant worker program. saudi arabia appointed a new crown prince mohammed bin salomon and the kingdom tried to sell an image of change but for its subjects freedom of speech and expression continue to be repressed. behind closed doors in abu dabi have forged
4:45 am
partnerships with tell of eve to strengthen their position and gain favor from the u.s. . the military campaign by saudi arabia and the u.a.e. in yemen is taking its toll financially and is criticized globally for the humanitarian catastrophe it has created. ignoring the calls for the blockade to end there has been no softening of the position from the blockading nations this is an irrational erratic crisis it started for no reason in my opinion is going to end like this the longer it continues the more damage it will do to everybody it seems that they have chosen little country because qatar has built its all resilience and showed that it cannot and will not be bullied by their neighbors with neither side willing to back down the future of the g.c.c. is at stake it will never be the same the sense of shock and the. trail following
4:46 am
this blockade is something that will be very difficult to erase and while there has been no clear victory the ambitions of the blockading quartet to change qatar's foreign and domestic policies have failed their failure to get qatar to concede or make significant concessions their failure to get european muslim asian and middle eastern actors to side with them over qatar has actually highlighted the limitations of the saudi u.a.e. access as a dominant strategic player in the region so i think the best case scenario for a resolution of this conflict is a public agreement to continue to disagreement private as the gulf countries continue to drift apart and new geo political alliances a merge in the region a resolution to the crisis seems a long way off. on
