but the further down the coast you get at the narrowest point down by the straits of gibraltar there's just fifteen miles fifteen kilometers separating northern africa from europe so it makes a very tempting target for migrants what could also be happening as numbers drop in other parts of the mediterranean now migrants and refugees are looking towards what they perceive as perhaps an easier western mediterranean route and that coming from northern africa into sprain and so far this month alone if you just look at the month of june there have been almost double the number of arrivals to spain than there have been in italy sami is there a feeling that the shutdowns in other parts of europe shutdowns to arrivals migrants and refugees is now shifting that pattern of people. that is certainly a concern that the all thora days in just the last few days a beginning to wake up to and to take
a look at bear in mind that in the last week almost two thousand migrants and refugees have arrived imports of southern spain so what they believe you look at the month of june for example will that at the start of the month the right wing populist government getting sworn in in italy almost at the same time middle of this month you've got the socialist prime minister of spain indicating that he was ready to step up to the plate and look for a more legal a safer way to allow migrants to come into spain and so it could be that on the other side of the mediterranean when migrants and refugees are planning their strategy is to come across that information as undoubtedly filtered through and people are looking for easier and more certain routes to get across but of course we'll have to see if this trend holds up as the month and the summer hold goes forward sami. all right col pam hall there thanks so much. and i will have all the weather with the meteorologist abbots in fox still ahead here now and

back you're watching our time to recap our headlines this hour government troops in yemen with the backing of the saudi america coalition so both taking control of her day this airport but fighting still continues troops are also cutting off the supply lines to the east of the city part of an attempt to retake the strategically important seaport the israeli military says it's hit at least twenty five targets in gaza linked to hamas the strikes followed around forty five rockets fired from the strip towards israel most of those strikes were intercepted. us republicans have agreed to work on legislation to end the political crisis around the president's policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the
southern border democrats are not willing to support a bill saying god from can solve the problem with a simple executive order. the united states has pulled out of the u.n. human rights council describing it as a cesspool of political bias see it was symbolically left. session on wednesday following the withdrawal the us joined the council in two thousand and nine and on the president barack obama but previous governments have long criticized decisions to that countries with for human rights records become members. we have no doubt that there was once a noble vision for this council but today we need to be honest the human rights council is a poor defender of human rights worse than that the human rights council has become an exercise in shameless hypocrisy with many of the world's worst human rights abuses going ignored and some of the world's most serious offenders sitting on the council itself we have used america's voice and vote to defend human rights at the
un every day and we will continue to do so even as we end our membership in the human rights council we will keep trying to strengthen the entire framework of the un engagement on human rights issues and we will continue to strongly advocate for reform of the human rights council should it become reformed we would be happy to rejoin it more deaths in nigger i was armed forces backed by the government tried to regain control of the city of messiah peace talks between the government and the opposition of being put on hold as violence continues to shake the central american nation al-jazeera as my note has more from managua and other. confrontations between anti-government protesters and paramilitary groups have claimed more lives in messiah nicaraguan police and government backed militias fired on demonstrators
as scores of people fled to their homes for cover the latest offensive by police comes after representatives of the resistance movement in messiah declared they would no longer allow themselves to be governed by a president or they're. going to. the blood of our brothers who have been cowardly murdered demand that we continue belligerently and unwavering towards the fight until or take it is gone. messiah is where much of the most brutal fighting has been concentrated as police attempted to regain control of the city massed protesters huddled behind barricades to shield themselves from live rounds one demonstrator continued to fire his homemade mortar at police even after being shot in the arm but i'm not some of us is that and there's no. i've been shot with a bullet here it's not possible that we're going to give up easily messiah is ready to fight and using our mortars we will kick them out long live messiah. the political crisis in the can i one is now in its second month after protests over
pension reform plan were met with violence by the government a growing opposition movement is now calling for the immediate resignation of president or at least one hundred eighty six people have died since the start of the conflict law enforcement authorities maintain that their efforts are to combat a delinquent movement that is part of a conspiracy against the government commerce in messiah once a popular tourist town has been halted with all roads leading into the city blocked off there are now reports that food and supplies are running out one of the main conditions for the peace talks to resume is for president or if they got to end the repression against anti-government demonstrators without a stop to violence against civilians it's hard to imagine a national dialogue that will successfully restore the peace anytime soon. police in ukraine have stopped demonstrators from storming the parliament building
. more than a thousand war veterans in mind has protested against plans to cut their benefits over five hundred police officers have now been deployed outside of palm and. turkey's upcoming election has focused attention on the issue of syrian refugees almost four million live in the country they've generally been welcomed but as the economy slows they fear they'll bear the fallout one hundred vaal has more from gas and tep near took his border with syria. is a bad man. he has kidney problems so severe he has to wear a catheter as. the family also has to care for his six year old daughter emma she lost her sight when she was a baby. shortly after the family fled their home in aleppo and the heavy bombardment by the syrian army has been lama has problems with speech and movement
despite years of medical examinations no one knows what's caused her disability which has been no has been as our own we were surprised by her illness aside begin to deteriorate rapidly after we left aleppo doctors in turkey also didn't understand why she couldn't speak normally it's strange because she can easily memorize and repeat whatever we say in front of her but when she talks she's not articulate. still sons don't go to school he says he's had problems of rolling them but the family needs the money they get. apprentices their wages supplement what he earns working in a plastics factory one situation shows some of the complex problems of the devil the lives of about four million people who fled the war in syria and became refugees in turkey the majority of them have set up in cities from managed to find out why less than twenty percent still live in camps near the border. life in these
camps is not easy while the refugees get food and other necessities they can't work or move around freely. stay here or or there. there is no. change in their. management of the camps but its main problems are still in the cities especially in the. big corporations. being in the margins of society. as the tax prepares to vote in a general election the status of syrian refugees has become a campaign topic. turkey's leaders are keen to stabilize syria to the point where refugees feel safe enough to go home for many that's a distant dream but they're more secure than the thousands of people trapped on the syrian side of the border they don't have refugee status the turkish army provides
them with some protection but they're not allowed to cross into turkey and they are afraid to return home one hundred five are dizzy or in. the turkish syrian border. north korea's leader has told china is country will do all it can to protect peace kim jong un is in beijing where he briefed president xi jinping on his meeting with u.s. president donald trump in singapore earlier this month the north korean state media says the two leaders discussed ways to work towards denuclearization it's kim's third visit to china since march adrian brown has more from beijing. well this is an unusual visit when kim jong un came here in march and again in may details of the visit were only released after he left china this time the details were released on the morning that he arrived he received a full welcoming ceremony at the great hall of the people with full military honors
slowly the north korean leader is being eased into the international fold no longer treated as the leader of a pariah state but as a bona fide leader of his country now i think that kim jong un and president xi jinping would have discussed perhaps what has so far not been made public about kim jong un's discussions in singapore with president donald trump this of course is where the two leaders committed themselves to the denuclearization of the korean peninsula of course north korea and the united states have very different definitions of what denuclearization is and indeed what timescale it should take place in nevertheless. kim jong un has really been at the center of world diplomacy now for the person for the past three months he's met not just the leader of china but also the president of the united states the president of south korea and of course the prime minister of singapore and he's due to meet president vladimir
putin of russia in september and i think that kim jong un and president xi jinping would also have been discussing sheeting pings imminent visit to the north korean capital there was also something else that came out of this meeting both kim and she jingping committed themselves to maintaining strong bilateral relations whatever happens internationally and reading between the lines i think that means that even if you know the deal between kim jong un and president donald trump doesn't work out china is essentially saying we will still be your friend. malcolm davis is a senior analyst at the astray and strategic policy institute and he says he doesn't think north korea will denuclearize despite having promised to do so. i don't think denuclearization will happen that's the key issue the north koreans talk about denuclearization of the korean peninsula and this is the exact same
words they've used every single time they have engaged with the united states and south korea on diplomacy going back to the nineteen nineties in the each time the north koreans have violated agreements that we've signed with them the north koreans have every incentive to hang on to their nuclear weapons as their sole source of international leverage and i think that president trumps decision unilaterally to cancel the upcoming military exercise of strain south korea and the united states was a mistake it was a concession up front to north korea in return for nothing in response and it weakens the u.s. hand going forward so i think that from china's perspective they would ultimately like to see the u.s. withdrawn from south korea certainly and preferably from northeast asia as a whole. still ahead on al-jazeera. i think it's very important that we are
decision and described the efforts as positive earlier this month ethiopia now and still fully accept the terms of a peace agreement signed eighteen years ago the central african republic has rejected former tennis star boris becker is claims of diplomatic immunity and says the official passport he has is fake becker says he was appointed as a sports attash a for the country in april and was issued diplomatic travel documents he says that gives him immunity against bankruptcy proceedings in london . but you. know some of it i like the.
in a world where journalism as an industry is changing. fortune to be able to continue to expand to continue to have that passion and drive and present the stories in a way that is important to our viewers. everyone has a story worth hearing. to cover those that are often ignored we don't weigh our coverage towards one particular region or continent joined al jazeera.
i think that a test brought a piece of my people. and we can and will invest. money and do many things that before you will feel what happened but will. come in we. put it on the back. of. the theme of the piece as they see this meeting. the future of the plantation in the put that could be. but. we must cease from being the supplier of rubbish it is to. an end exporting barely read it but then put out. two forms but it needs. to enjoy to find this cup of tea. the

when there's a breaking news story in the news has a very fascinating country but very difficult to understand from the outside and because i've been living here for sixteen years i know very well it's going on and i go out there and cover the whole country and even the young al jazeera gives the opportunity for a journalist to be real journalists. with bureaus spanning six continents across the globe. to do. al-jazeera has correspondents live in greens the stories they tell. about it. sued to world news. one of the really special things about working for al-jazeera is that even as a camera woman i get to have so much empathy and contribution to a story i feel we cover this region better than anyone else working for. the body
particularly because you have a lot of people that are divided on political issues we are we the people we live to tell the real stories are just mended is to deliver in-depth journalism we don't feel inferior to the audience across the globe. books of the african country instead well from barbara and go. these are some of the bronzes stolen more than one hundred years ago in what is now southern nigeria mr the artifacts removed from the can have been inspired this and the drop in the british museum campaign as have made repeated calls for their return i think it's very important that we are straightforward and honest and transparent about the ways in which some of these objects events at the collection is absolutely not the case that everything in the museums african collections was planted or looted always have a phrase you want to use but obviously there are certain circumstances or certain
events that happened. and certain examples like that then in bronzes where that material would have come into the collection and not in the same way today curators from europe and the united states and negotiating an agreement to set up a permanent exhibition of the bronzes in nigeria why it is true that the british have a number of objects which they have many of these objects and although you know probably so there's need for there to be there for about as well as what the billion dollar group is all about but it is unclear whether the nigerian government will accept to learn or from the british museum. we will will you be open to such conversations so there's just not one for. decision as to whether it's going to be a goal or i mean if we talk you know we just we will be open to having a broad range of discussions on. each piece of work. the oldest of the
bronzes who cost in the fifteen hundreds descendants of the artists a cough them still practice the craft today if realty obregon it lists. the beauty for people to see it especially when docs our forefathers did the job their hope is that all depictions of everyday life chiseled through the agency can one day be seen by future generations in the land where they were created barbara and get passed out to sarah but save for the news hour shell is back in a minute stay with us.
