one and not other groups here in afghanistan that are fighting against it but now we know that the afghan president plans to unilaterally extend the cease fire we expect an official announcement in the coming days so all eyes right now on the taliban and of course we have seen these remarkable scenes afghan fighters so afghan military meeting with the taliban fighters here and in places around the country wishing them eat green things and i think it's brought a lot of hope for the poor some sort of peace of course it was in february that president danny issued a really unconditional invitation to peace talks he said very political recognition for the taliban if they came to peace talks and of course peace is what is the government's goal here trying to find some sort of negotiated agreement with the taliban or we'll leave it there jennifer and we'll wait to get some more developments on the situation from going to half a q. so to europe now where the greek government is facing a vote of no confidence over a deal to solve a decades old dispute with the former yugoslav republic of macedonia the foreign
ministers are expected to meet on the border region to sign that agreement on sunday under the deal macedonia would change its name to the republic of north macedonia but nationalists on both sides see it as a humiliating defeat for. more than six hundred migrants have been stranded at sea of all the aquarius for over a week after italy and multiple fused to accept them now the aquarius to attorney in brussels are due to sail into the spanish port city of valencia this least an oil of a safe harbor led to an international cry earlier this week following events force in berlin through his car panel our correspondent waiting for the ship to arrive how were the spanish preparing for its arrival call. well there have been a lot of preparations going on as you can imagine both relief organization level and government level and in the last couple of hours we have heard from the spanish
government that they've been talking to their french counterparts and that france is ready to take some of the migrants due to come ashore on the aquarius now the spanish authorities say they will simply go through this procedure of asking the migrants where they wish to settle and they will try and facilitate that up until now the spaniards it said they would give no preferential treatment to the migrants coming aboard shore from the aquarius but this kind of idea that there's a deal that france will take some of them suggests otherwise meanwhile of course it's still difficult to say what time those ships will dock here in valencia everything indicates it could be around dawn sunday morning medical officers will go aboard first to give an initial health check and then police will go through the process of registering them before they are then moved to some kind of migrant hospital but let's take a look at the preparations that we're going to have. this will be the safe haven
in of an odyssey. a key side in valencia activists ready preparing to greet the six hundred twenty nine migrants due to dock this weekend you know what they were this problem from that out there on the muslims are a nice to give a warm welcome to these people who have been passed around like a football europe is trying to turn a blind eye but we want to respect their rights and offer them a whole our land is their land bridge across teams offloaded russians and hygiene kits the migrants will get a health check and be registered by police in nugent cases especially pregnant women and children who hit a hospital most will go to a shelter for a square meal mclean. spain's red cross assists thousands of undocumented migrants each year. for them in the us some of you have to understand this is a huge drama these are people who need help and we must find
a solution for people who are just like you and me cannot be floating around for days without knowing where they're going in these conditions they just have the padlock to be born in a place with more complicated political or social situations. volunteers of volunteers food bank. something for every hungry mouth regardless of religion or dietary requirements the charity already feeds ten thousand of the city's neediest each week and says there's plenty to go round for a few hundred more. found a highway sierra grew up in an orphanage himself and he's passionate about helping those less fortunate. but in view of the real people in valencia our kind and want to stranger arrives we ask them to sit at our table and so i'd like to say welcome and that they will get our love and support you've come from a far and had a tough time but now it's time to sit down and share with us. the spanish
government says those landing this weekend will be processed like other asylum seekers no preferential treatment these migrants may still face a rocky road ahead based on last year's figures spanish or thora likely to grant refugee status to only one third of the new arrivals the others could get sent right back to where they came from. this may be journey's end for a lucky few but it's just another chapter in the ebb and flow of europe's unresolved migration crisis. and just to put things a little bit in perspective we have been focusing for a week or more on the plight of these six hundred or so migrants a bore. the aquarius but in just the last thirty six hours in just the last day and a half the spanish marine rescue services have plucked more than one hundred other migrants from the sea in the southern mediterranean in the straits of gibraltar
they were trying to make their way to spain aboard seventy rickety either fishing vessels or even children's plastic. that gives us some kind of perspective that yeah by tomorrow perhaps we've resolved the situation of six hundred migrants but europe europe's migration crisis is far far from result there are human beings making the crossing in perilous conditions even while we're focused here on valencia indeed they are called of course we'll come back to you as that situation develops and we see the arrival of the aquarius for the moment thank you. still ahead here on al-jazeera talks to end the killings in iraq you know the deal for the international investigation into the bloodshed to stay with us here and i'll just.

thousand and six we've been adding to our collection of award winning films year by year and here on rewind we're showcasing some of them once again today it's a one on one east film about the abnormally high suicide rate among young indigenous australians each year more than one hundred aboriginals choose to end their lives they are twice as likely to commit suicide as other restraints in kimberley and western australia tree stumps they use to mark the site of a suicide and programs based on ancient rituals have been developed to try to help young people find their way from twenty twelve this is australia's last generation . remote and picturesque. the kimberley in north west australia. a vast area three times the size of england.
the traditional lands of the good ranges. to take care of the land. a using their bush skills. study but it's a different bank that ensure. what's or whatever. but recently these ranges have had to a quiet a new set of skills. to respond on the ball to some lloyd know gets younger brother last year the suicide spot the only good ranges to take up a suicide intervention course i lost my little brother too so. last year. we had my birthday.
mowanjum has a population of three hundred fifty people. and is about eight kilometers away from the town of. it situated in the kimberley. the week before we arrived there had been another five suicides in the region. it's taboo to talk about the aboriginal culture to even say the name of someone who has passed away but we've been invited to speak with people in the community. there's been more suicides there than anywhere else in the kimberley region just about every single family has been touched by suicide.
is a suicide response worker for the. area has been working here for more than seventeen news hundred or more has become in this community. very year old kids. want to hang in there actually mark out the tree where i didn't want to hang . out in the kimberley region. in the kimberley region it's probably up to thirty completed in the last twelve months. and that's a. tree stumps mark the spot where people have committed suicide. serving as an eerie reminder of the on timely deaths.
families guard down. just like you don't want to see it brings back. bad memories but at night. best friend killed himself here a few months ago he was just eighteen years old if someone commits suicide it affects the whole community like we're all one big family it's not the first time a man has had to deal with the death of someone close to him. when i was only an adolescent. committed suicide i didn't know what for. just turning eighteen so i think about it too. and the sound of suicide in his sleep. i just like. people shouting in the night saying somebody help this person want to
commit suicide or hang themselves. void no good believes a lack of opportunity is contributing to a downward spiral there's nothing there for them but alcohol and drugs there's nothing exciting or good for them to enjoy. it. takes us to a popular spot the adults and children go to drink alcohol kimberly's along and drink three times a much. stronger you know normal sitting for the boys to have a drink is ninety cans of beer. with copious amounts of know.
and drink that you and i and then go back next time good assignment often the whole white on the whole. and not even flinch. terrence james often finds himself in a drug and alcohol haze we go on to have a good time. and broke smoke weed. a few years ago when he was high and depressed terence tried to hang himself. as i hear that happened in the oh well here. for the rope he takes me to the site of his suicide attempt oh. come over here to help me understand how you're feeling that day. it was going to get it from going on.
waist that broken. and one of my mind in my mind that school blank you know the day no one went over here to i'm one of them and with them. getting one. just. like nobody don't then worry would mean and over. in my muscle. republican we're all going to grab a rope and. we're back home and. we're doing it for you we're doing a good feel for. where
the northern territory with us so aside right is three and a half times the national average wedding to an indigenous can't just say how culturally appropriate methods are being used to heal and say they are. david cole runs which means creation in the local language it's about giving the kids a safe place and a culturally appropriate place to just. get away from things play them on share some tools of the. can some seeds of understanding and by sickly help them work through the challenges i got. to just let things go and how's a culturally appropriate the biggest aspect of the problem is cultural reconnection it's getting the kids to build their self-esteem and true identity and culture and that's a key component in the program. camp
. for about a week at this one nine high risk youths are being put to task. for. making traditional weapons to help break connect them to their ancient culture. more than forty thousand history. with traditional dance i. and smoking ceremonies to clinton. but one of these adolescents had thought of committing suicide and are recovering from drug and alcohol addictions. we can't identify them because they're under age ranging from twelve to sixteen years old. to early and hoping to heal.
you know the violence the broken families the loss of identity the various forms of abuse physical mental emotional. substance abuse drug and alcohol. can be drug and alcohol around the kids and ultimately the kids being embroiled in that substance abuse themselves. first indigenous psychologist professor pat dudgeon. says substance abuse is a symptom of largest social issues i think that indigenous people are still dealing with all the problems that are a consequence from. all of that plane has been left unattended and just manifested through the generations and that plane passed on to the children and site has led to the children that we
have today who at the end of that they don't understand the pain that i must understand where it comes from and i don't understand why they must endure such crying. this fifteen year old who can bring is one boy who wanted to end his life. she kind of man you just. don't feel lucky. now so awful. what do you do with that anger. so i do bad things. because. that's where you find the drunks and stuff like that with a little help from nature david cole is trying to show these adolescents how to isolate their problems. if there's violence broken family if there's been past abuse if there's been whatever it is every challenge every problem that
bothers you or is on your mind i want you to get iraq i want you to just paul along the edge of the water. the bigger the problem the bigger the rock. how does it how do they feel is it hurting. and that's what problems do if you refuse to find ways of releasing it if you will have to carry this pine tree your whole life you have to learn you have to be willing to learn how to let go i had a lot of sort of pre. let. young people need to be given. that they culture. being cultural activities and feel that they are part of a community and a cultural community. so we're only going to a small hearing session a meditation and marking to finish for. this is
the healing circle. and indigenous version of a counseling session. which is going to go through a very. really meditation technique. in accordance with aboriginal custom for the young boys to speak at the healing circle but they're encouraged to. who. we are. both. cameron says the camp has made him feel stronger. like you and i. respect and. the challenge lies in keeping these boys on track after they leave the balun you camp
it's really hard it's hard for us because. thirty percent of the kids are extreme hard risk area and there were kids to be deeply involved in substance abuse and the ones who are looking at some sort of an option from the sky. with their lack of resources and lack of appropriate from being and support we can to have a quick follow up marion scrymgour is an outgoing state minister in the northern territory government she skeptical that money from a controversial government package is reaching indigenous communities under the northern territory emergency response there was only story billion dollars that's significant tax payers money that's gone into what people think has gone into these communities a lot of their money is spent on bureaucrats consultants
a lot of people fly in fly out from these communities there is very little money that goes into pride grains and for working with families working with communities so that they can build and start dealing with that with the trauma. she says she's leaving politics because she doesn't believe it's hoping aboriginals enough heck can i sit in this job any longer i don't what i'm doing. we've got i ten year old young kids killing themselves. it's clear something is wrong. their communities have got to start taking some strong staying. because there's not going to be a generation left if. we're heading east of darwin to the picturesque and largely indigenous land just. years ago the community of state me among the highest rates of suicide i have to tell you know well at its
highest point when the elderly lady decided to take matters into their own hands. is a ski beach she says it was the hanging suicide of a twenty one year old that sparked a cluster of other suicides in her community he was the first one to commit suicide . the first time his community in this community. youngest sister also committed suicide that was when her family took action seven years ago creating a volunteer service called the mango suicide prevention group what do you do to prevent suicide in the community. i would walk me and my sisters we walk the streets and listen for the noise where it's coming from. the women
run a twenty four hours suicide watch often patrolling the streets with only small torches they mediate in family issues and mental troubled youths will probably up the next day go to their house and see them have cafferty read where their parents they've been and so they're in a modern ingroup beds like canceling. local police say the group's work has been invaluable for boys that since they've begun operating out i think there's been a source saw it in their area and later while suicide numbers have dropped there's been a shop rise in attempted suicides looking at the figures from time to two thousand and treated two has an eye where there was forty or ten now and just this two year period to hafiz the one hundred thirteen that's a significant increase. is nick still bears the road marks from his suicide
attempt to weeks ago. galas group intervened just in time to save the twenty three year old. two months. the reason i've been doing this was because my biggest problem is with alcohol and once i start drinking alcohol i start losing control i would think things like my family doesn't love me and i want to go hang myself with them and i don't want to learn to new i want to change my life a better life so that i can spend time with my son go hunting and fishing with him and do good thing in the. back in mowanjum terence told me he wants to cut down the tree where he attempted suicide. or live kind of. you know.
to me that's a staple of someone going forward. but then remove something of a symbol that. they want to end their life with. in its own way the community too is giving itself the space to heal. trees were families but people commit suicide it's up and down but we don't actually care as the time it takes to grow back gives us the time to get over forget about it. while suicide remains a scourge in aboriginal communities across astray it appears that family and culture is indigenous australia is best hope to saving the young.
australia of last generation so that was back in twenty twelve which leads us to ask how successful have those schemes been in reducing the suicide rate where we're joined now by psychologist professor pat dudgeon who you recognize from the film a former commissioner of the astray and national mental health commission she teaches at the university of western australia and actually runs a number of suicide prevention projects focusing on aboriginal communities it's great to have you with us here on ri one professor dudgeon you really believe then that that local approach works oh absolutely look every channel interest right on the people have been just some pad there's a whole lot of issues facing women not just us and a stride in this old. would remain issues for indigenous people of settler countries such as in new zealand canada and the states where recovery from call on is a really important issue and what we do on the names that enable people to become empowered
to control their own destinies to control their eye and resources to decide what the problem is and to be given the right information to decide what the solution is back in twenty twelve when the film was made the wood epidemic was used to describe that situation in western australia and i'm not suggesting for a moment that this would be fixed overnight but we are now six years down the track the levels are still high there were some reports which talk about one hundred times the national average in western australia. i mean would you have expected or certainly hoped for it to have come down more look i think that's. sometimes those figures have been a tad sensationalize suicide writes however having said that suicide rites do remind very hard i was still twice the national average suicide is the fifth leading cause of death and some my group's indigenous people are seven times more likely to type their laws the papal and northern territory actually is
a magician as having the greatest state average of suicide when you have having a high suicide right something is going terribly wrong you mentioned some other countries a little bit earlier places like new zealand and canada what is the common factor with these indigenous communities around the world including the aboriginal australia that leads to the high suicide rates ah look there's a commonality of a range of different things but odd side that certainly i think there is an affinity with those other countries because they were indigenous people in those countries the countries were taken and sometimes very almost tong's very brutally so we've had processes of colonize asian you know being removed genocides being removed off country put into reserves missions residential schools
and then having new laws dictated to enforce legislation so there's a history told the countries that are about people losing their they draw it's losing their countries and losing their human rights which needs to be we need to go into recovery about certainly in a stride the there was denial of that that process of history that's now starting to change change around certainly are proud then prime minister kevin rudd's apology to the stolen generations was one of the guys really his. sturrock all moments where there was an acknowledgement of the harm done and a genuine polity given for that hound so i think that we as a nation can start healing when i'm in a ship and there is a truce a non est between different groups professor pat dudgeon former commissioner for
the straining national mental health commission it's been a pleasure talking to you thank you for joining us my pleasure kemal and that is it from us to join us again next week and also be sure to check out the rewind page at al-jazeera dot com for more films from the series i'm come out santamaria from the whole team thanks for joining us so you can see. a new series of rewind i can bring your people back to life i'm sorry and bring you updates on the best of al-jazeera documentaries the struggle continues from the till now huge distance rewind continues with baltimore anatomy of an american city close friends who were lost to the streets i can literally see the future of baltimore to the ass of my students and it does not look rewind on al-jazeera. i sometimes feel that we are really looking into the hearts and the souls of those

it with the news grid live on air and streaming online for you to facebook live and at al-jazeera dot com thank you for joining us all those stories coming up in just a moment but first we begin with breaking news out of afghanistan this hour at least twenty six people have been killed in an explosion at a gathering of taliban and afghan security officials in the eastern city of jalalabad they were together to mark a cease fire which the government is extending let's bring in jennifer glass who is in kabul forest so jennifer both the afghan government forces and the taliban targeted any claim of responsibility. no claim of responsibility yet and it's a very devastating blow really for what has been going on here the gathering of the afghan taliban and afghan security forces unprecedented that going on in jalalabad the governor's spokesman says it was a suicide bomber that detonated that explosion there in that large gathering we've
seen gatherings like this that today on the outskirts of kabul and in one of the kabul neighborhoods and around the country as the taliban and afghan security forces a have come together but of course it being shattered now by this explosion in her province in eastern afghanistan perhaps by somebody who doesn't want the peace that to go on no one has claimed responsibility we do know that i still is a very active in that part of afghanistan and i still was not part of either ceasefire are the government or the taleban ceasefire so they may be the spoiler in all of this and i think everyone's going to watching with bated breath to see what happens next right so what's going to happen jennifer to the truce that was agreed between the government and the taliban over the eight holiday. well the taliban had issued its three day cease fire starting friday so in theory should end tomorrow the government says its cease fire was supposed to last a week but now it has just announced president ghani has announced that he will
extend that ceasefire unilaterally i think trying to build on the goodwill that we have seen on the outskirts of kabul taliban fighters came in from wardak province they were disarmed at the gates of the city people when they heard that they were there came out gathered one taliban fighter said his heart was bursting with joy that this was happening that he woke up this morning and heard that the taliban could come into the city without any referee cussons they gave up their their weapons at the edge of the city they were taking photographs selfies with civilians and soldiers they were handing their weapons to civilians and soldiers to take photographs we saw a large bus load of the taliban and afghan soldiers line both the taliban flag and the afghan flag of driving into the afghan capital and it is a scene we've seen repeated around the country so the real question is there seems to be some momentum for peace the government's gamble to issue an unilateral ceasefire paid off with this taleban cease fire and now i think everyone's going to wait and see what the taleban will do we've seen
a lot of joy around the country from both the afghan military taliban fighters and civilians all of whom would like to see an end to the long many years of fighting here and now the question is will the taliban extend their ceasefire as well thank you for that jennifer glass live for us on the news grid from kabul and as jennifer mentioned there joining the cease fire these are some of the images many afghans i've seen on social media take a look rallies in support of peace afghan journalist posted these saying that he'll visit his village for the first time in years if the ceasefire is extended by both sides so a lot of joy at this ceasefire but unfortunately a blast in jalalabad shattering it with the least twenty six people killed. now on to other world news and yemen's government forces backed by the saudi erotic coalition say they have all but captured the airport in who data from who the rebels it's the latest development in an offensive that the u.n. has warned could worsen food shortages in
