10:00 pm
the taliban has confirmed to our jazeera that it will not agree to a government announcement to extend the existing ceasefire in kabul on saturday government forces and taliban fighters celebrated the three day festival of together building hope that a longer peace could be possible we can now speak to kate kark who is director of the afghanistan analysis network and she is joining us from lymington spar in the u.k. kate thank you very much indeed how remarkable first of all were those scenes of taliban members embracing members of the afghan security forces and all of them carrying roses to celebrate. it was our president it was remarkable and i think it was better than any one of hopeful though there was some worry that the ceasefire wouldn't hold it was a mutual cease fire after three days by both afghan and taliban and actually american forces for three days held but i think this these
10:01 pm
scenes of afghans both taliban and government soldiers and civilians embracing each other celebrating it tries to get. cricket eating ice cream as you say. pictures of taliban giving government soldiers roses this is unprecedented and i think only wholly unexpected except that i think for many of us we've learned there is a deep yearning for peace among afghans civilians and foot soldiers and if this could be harnessed you could see the beginning of a peace process ok this is this is what we are seeing in the moment can i can i jump in then and ask you whether these attacks normally carried out by ice or whether these attacks have the potential to disrupt what could be a very positive beginning of
10:02 pm
a process. i think they show just kind marginal i escapee which is that franchise and going to sort of tax just how marginal they are they can disrupt it but they can't actually old. what's happened over the last three days the taliban are the main or make the afghan government and there was a ceasefire it was peaceful be held as you said that the taliban leadership would an end of the cease fire but i think it is that the bag is actually much more difficult to kill someone to fight someone if you've just been praying with them and the religious motivation of the insurgency also somehow becomes questioned you know if it's if you have a three day cease fire going to head on to kill your fellow muslim. why is it suddenly how long day for i think that for those with the movement. has been too dangerous to talk about peace talks all want to talk negotiations it becomes
10:03 pm
a say in these things become so noble and i really hope that the dynamic of the war has been changed. and you know something like i escape people who are spoilers. afghanistan actually the taliban to police them ok because when i say no sweat it uniquely can i can i just see their four because i mean this official three day cease fire comes to an end at the end of sunday which is today why not three new extend the cease fire then the taliban has said they're not prepared to do it the government as afghani has offered to extend it to the taliban if not to other fighting groups in afghanistan why not extend it to meet the government halfway. it's very very dangerous as i said how can you justify this war is it hard. if once you or your fighters actually fraternize with the enemy it becomes much much
10:04 pm
more difficult and i'd say for those that you know the taliban leadership didn't actually want the cease fire they were bounced into it by the international finance but i assure frannie i think they they agree to it would have looked too bad if they if they did sister don't keep infighting over aid but what has happened has been a sort of deny and chaos it was not controlled like either side neither by the government or by the taliban leader ship and what the taliban leadership have seen as their cards right now they're very normally very obedient cartwright mixing with the enemy mingling with the enemy posting selfies on on social media it was like pieces broken after three days and that is interest for leadership which still seems bent on violent jihad ok clark thank you very much andy. now we've got a lot more to come on this news hour including political backlash grazes the u.s. separates undocumented migrants from the children. and the competing claims over

10:07 pm
implement democratic reforms the opposition really won't be happy with anything less than a premature departure from the presidency of ortega human rights groups say at least one hundred seventy mostly young people have been killed since mid april and confrontations between heavily armed soldiers and demonstrators armed with rocks and slingshots. protesters are calling on ortega's government to end the violence which the president blames on foreign agitators and drug cartels the latest violence flared hours after troops have been signed between the government and civic groups right now there's no external institution and no internal. real leadership that can bring about a change here who doubts one nickname in the president has yet to respond to demands by the catholic church for early elections ortega's third term as head of one of the poorest countries in the americas is set to end in two thousand and

10:09 pm
forming a very bleak backdrop to the ongoing debate about immigration reform something that washington has been discussed for a long period of time now that zero policy tolerance policy announced by the attorney general gypsy shin's and it does separate children from their parents who have crossed the border illegally while they undergo some form of legal process and certainly it's created a strong public debate within the u.s. a debate that like so much else is on partisan lines democrats roundly condemning this move of republicans saying that it's for security but there is a gap in between with some moderate republicans getting increasingly concerned about what you could refer to as the optics of having children in detention centers with midterm elections coming up within a few months time so the debate is ongoing and this is reflected in the compromise
10:10 pm
immigration bill that the house leader paul ryan is backing which he wants to get a vote on next week and what about popular sentiment given as you mentioned you've got tens coming up in november any disapproval for policies of this nature will be will have a measurable political impact. very much so and that is what house republicans and senate republicans are eyeing very much an awareness of how bad potentially the prison system is the zero tolerance policy that's why a number of republicans are supporting paul ryan's bill now what that particular bill does is legitimizes the so-called dreamers those. children who came in with their parents years ago it will legitimize them it will allow them to eventually gain u.s. citizenship but at the same time it tightens control on family link to immigration
10:11 pm
it also provides billions of dollars for president trumps wall with mexico now many of the moderate republicans are backing this some conservative republicans say no it amounts to a complete amnesty and democrats are insisting that they will not vote for any bill that provides billions of dollars for a wall so we have this political debate going on with all the politicians keeping an eye on their constituencies well aware of those elections to come and well aware that they've got to do what the right thing is however among politicians as always there's great debate about exactly what is the right thing and among republicans there's debate about what does president trump want mike hanna live in washington d.c. thanks. now in yemen saudi and coalition air strikes have targeted the data international airport in their campaign to seize control from who the rebels five days of fighting the yemen's main seaport is cut off an important aid delivery route of all
10:12 pm
files of people to escape priyanka gupta reports. put it the international airport clearly damaged but the who these insist still very much in their hands that despite claims by the saudi. military coalition they're dead now and good to hear from them about this is the whole day the international airport today is the second day of. and the claims that they took control of the airport baseless they are just spreading lies and rumors. but if the saudi and polish it is did control of the airport its forces aren't far away and ground. now the u.n. special envoy to yemen marty griffiths has flown into the yemeni capital sanaa to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe in her there though. the port city is a lifeline not only to the who these but to the entire yemeni population we're just

10:14 pm
humanitarian crisis and there are fears of worse to come we are very fearful that any kind of blockage. of the free flow of humanitarian food also commercial stocks particularly food and fuel could have a major impact on people who are already highly vulnerable as some of the middle east's richest countries fight the region's poorest the u.n. special envoy is reinforcing the international appeals to stop the destruction. al-jazeera. the driver of a taxi which plowed into world cup football fans in moscow says he fell asleep after spending twenty hours behind the well in a video released by the police the twenty eight year old from kyrgyzstan apologize he says his foot accidentally hit the accelerator at least eight people were

10:25 pm
twenty four hours conservative yvonne duke a and his left wing rival gustavo pad throw that throw has vowed to tackle inequality but some fear that he could turn colombia into another venezuela. andy gallagher explains why. petro has captured the imagination of colombia's young voters his stance on tackling inequality reducing reliance on carbon fuels and ending the status quo of right wing politics appeals to a new generation eager to change it sort of make it all got to get it's time to end two hundred years of the same families governing us this is the chance for free citizenship and equality for all your biggest i think is the only candidate that has a long term vision for our country when it comes to fighting climate change and creating a modern liberal democracy no stranger to politics gustavo petro is a former member of the nineteen rebel group four years ago he became the mayor of one of the most powerful political positions in the country his tenure was marred
10:26 pm
by controversy critics say autocratic style was abrasive a supporter of the historic peace accords with the fog rebels this intellect of the left has emerged as a real contender. whatever happens gustavo petro has the distinction of being the most successful leftist candidate in this country's history he does however face some stiff opposition particularly from those in the business community say a petro presidency could lead to economic ruin. oh when we meet mario hernandez at his factory in bogota he's enthusiastically handing out caps emblazoned with the name of petros opponent even ducking and mendez is one of the biggest manufacturers in colombia like many in the business community he's concerned that petros policies are anti business. and i don't know what he hears against the productive class he wasn't the klan found to be go on and give a small plots of land to farmers that's not how you run the country you care to
10:27 pm
generate employment doxies and consumption. to window through needs the support of undecided voters like artist gabrielle or sanchez she's leaning towards the fifty eight year old and tells us she's feeling pressure to decide i've seen it and a social media a lot of people are all the time so if you vote for the book a you are going to kill people like this. and a lot of hate. for decades colombia's fought against leftist guerrillas now one is a leading presidential candidate with a chance of shaping this country's future and again look at al-jazeera bogota colombia. right now we can speak to collin harding here is a latin america analyst he's joining us via skype from manchester in the u.k. thank you for joining us colin it seems very much as though columbia at this moment as they go to the polls in this runoff election are exceedingly polarize i say that
10:28 pm
because they've got quite an extreme right winger and quite a far left contender as well as well yes they do have a real choice. which is turned it into. to be restricted to quite a narrow range of people. and certainly moderating in cisco it's recently presented itself more as a social democrat but an extreme left wing guy and i'm going to keighley breitling at the label of star rice having teach he claims is going to be a zone around that his association that the mayor is mental health care phone the president has made exaggerates it but he certainly has been said he is very much the favorite of business class and those who believe that he would bring stability keep stability in the country which has improved in recent times and how far is the thing with the peace agreement with the fog rebels something that people are going
10:29 pm
to be voting on when they go to the polls it is a factor i mean there are lots of others as well as corruption inequality a need to reform the tax system to improve the health service and so on but so the a lot of people are rightly concerned about the the stability of the peace process which was signed by the outgoing government largely as a consequence of the policies all day of the mental root of two k. who launched an all out military campaign against the far current and brought them to dig a cheating table the problem is that really bay and do k. following him i'm not happy with the terms of the agreement this has been something to do has said that he will now if he becomes president he will change the terms he has made in which tough area has a much more punitive approach to the handling it's a shock at that and petro just petros president emphasis really aren't the needful
10:30 pm
investments in rural areas development aid of education and so on whereas it has and duquesne is saying no these people must be in a to pay more for the crimes they can. charity years of. trustees and that's what he's going to do better a lot of people are concerned that if he does follow that through as president. some of the farkle taken bombs again if they feel that their children stand and we have. returned to the instability in. the conflict. and the recent past but this is the problem isn't that this is a country that has just emerged from years and years decades of civil conflict and anything that is too destabilizing could quite easy thrust the country back into conflict the conflict of three four years ago. well that is that is the concern in the conflict and remember larry it's been around since nine hundred sixty something that's far really just laid down there in the last year or so so that there are
10:31 pm
a lot of memories of what it was like and a lot of people feel that fact really have been left off too likely that they're in a lab to one school party takes its income the rest escape. retribution for some of the things that make it and that is what appeals to them about two k. am that the fact is not popular in general expound political policy but very cautious of course in these elections people do want more retribution because that there is the danger inherent in. it could lead to incentives to civil strife and petraeus very much stayed clear that he's committed to honoring the terms of the present agreement calling harding thank you very much indeed out of there has seen how tilton in bangladesh some barely school age being paid a dollar a day to make cigarettes the human rights groups are urging the government to
10:32 pm
enforce child labor laws but that's difficult because the children families often rely on their earnings to survive tell strafford report. this is a cigarette manufacturing factory in bangladesh but there are a few if any machines working. al-jazeera secretly filmed these pictures the reason the factory owner refused to spy mission to film is because of the children working here the bangladesh government says it's doing all it can to crack down on child labor but there is little evidence of that in this factory. some of the children making these cheap cigarettes non-locally is beauty's look barely ten years old. but the money they earn helps their families survive many children work at home making the paper choose which is sent to the factory to be filled with tobacco they get around forty cents for every three thousand chooks the average wage is around a dollar a day fifteen year old was some of the sheets
10:33 pm
a cartoon works with her younger brothers and sisters making babies four days a week but unlike many others in the industry she also goes to school you guys go to a bar we work to help our family this is how we survive my parents taught me this line of work at a very young age i don't like doing it you have to sit in the same position and work long hours we don't even make that much money. according to the bangladesh label the minimum legal age for employment is fourteen united nations children's agency unicef says in full smoot is difficult because of where most of the children work in small factories workshops or from home will be global equity. this should be a different set of jobs for these people other than the tobacco industry they are at least two million people working nationwide in.
