and the conflict in syria is like a so hollywood horror movie with very predictable formulas and this kind of ever more violent sequels and what those formulas are like are airstrikes and the movement of syrian backed forces into areas rebel control often followed by siege is often followed by a sustained prolonged denial of aid access and that's where the humanitarian catastrophe really comes in and i think it's really important at this stage of this particular offensive to really emphasize that it is the beginning of that we've seen some forty thousand plus displaced those numbers could escalate could spike a lot further and as your report alluded to this was an area of the syria which did have a sort of diplomatic guarantee made by the russians are doing in the americans and i think it's within their power to find a far more peaceful outcome to the situation there than one that is yet another sequel to homs aleppo institute and yes well the borders are closed and countries in the region regional area have got every right to say they've taken a huge number of people in often a move to the border doesn't necessarily mean that those syrians want to move across it simply looking for a place of greater safety in syria that's
6:01 am
a rare thing on did i think in syria there's no winning so i think in terms of the conflict there may be an mutation in a sort of a coming to a different point a different chapter if you will moving from the original more civil conflict to a regional conflict to an international conflict and of course as the maps you put up showed this is pushing into an incredibly sensitive area with the israeli occupied golan heights and the fact that israel has taken a far more certain position in syria in terms of strikes on targets that so i would think we should certainly move away from the narrative that the syrian conflict is winding down when we see the novel's of displacement that simply moves it into a different place and ultimately we haven't predicted where it would have gone from from seven years ago we should predict the next the united nations says it's confirmed more than eight hundred cases of children being used in the fighting in yemen a new report accuses both who three rebels and saudi and backed forces of recruiting child soldiers are diplomatic editor james bose has more from un headquarters in new york. this is the un's annual report on children and conflict written by the

6:03 am
report on it. as honestly as as we can so if you engage with the office you can continue killing children you're making an unfair and unfair assumption the point is that people need to we need to see people engage and engage constructively and show us repeatedly over the repeating period that they have the of making an effort to avoid the death of children algis or is obtained a copy of this report it's not yet public but it will be discussed by the security council next month. you're watching the news hour live from london this much more to come on the program including this protest outside a court in spain as a doctor gives evidence in the first case of the so-called stolen baby scandal. navy divers are called in to help search for twelve boys and their football coach missing for three days now inside a flooded cave in thailand. and in sports france and denmark booked their places in

6:26 am
harare. some of the barwon say they are disappointed after saturday's explosion they expected to see president and and the main opposition leader nelson chamisa at this peace signing ceremony saying that they are committed to peace come the elections in july but none of them attended some of them i was asking how serious are politicians really about making sure that this election in july is peaceful we saw earlier there was a small opposition parties in the room were attending the signing ceremony they were very unhappy with the electoral process they say they feel that the electoral commission is siding with the greens on the pier party and they are really worried that zanu p.f. could rig this election or one man had to be dragged out of the room by the police because he would not keep writing on and on again that in theory and this election will not be free and credible early on in the day members from the zanu p.f. you me gave their version of what they think happened at the explosion on saturday
6:27 am
in pull away and they say they call it an act of terrorism is it has nothing to do with internal party divisions and they say from now on if the security forces contradict the president and they'll have to do it themselves or one thing they plan to do is to have to form a human shield at the next rally where they say very few people to get close to the president. well let's take the opportunity to talk more about zimbabwe and its upcoming elections joining me this studio is nox ciccio he's an associate fellow of the africa program at chatham house thanks so much for joining us thank you so president ma says the elections will go ahead they'll be peaceful they will be free and do the events of the week and lead you in any way to question well certainly you know what what happened and it does cost a shadow people have been concerned about this we've not at this before in in the elections but on the other hand you know there has been a state of emergency declared president has said look let's have
6:28 am
a peaceful process so they are some possible. have emerged has been that national peace pledge signed by the parties today but certainly the issue of the safety of candidates i think is an issue going forward i mean zimbabwe let's face it over the last four decades or so is not a place where things tend to explode at government rallies but we're given to believe of course this is a new zimbabwe of post mugabe zimbabwe does the shadow of the old man still hang over the process to well you know when you talk among think for most people have moved on where largely now in a post mugabe period but if things do get tricky during the actions or after then you know you may find some residue of the era continue but for most people i think people just want to move forward and get on with the elections and see who will be the next government where the question of security of course is an issue he did who
6:29 am
was responsible for this blast let's look at the two candidates i mean it's i mean i'm going to i guess is the more controversial of the two he has his enemies either for his role in ousting mcgarvie or of course as mugabe is in force of the crocodile as it was for so many is do you think he brings with him a further security threat. well certainly he will be looking to enhance his security and you know he himself said after this this explosion that no it's normal enemies whoever that may be so issue of security and his security certainly will be there for election and also for the opposition. has also said you know they've been threats against him so that that remains an issue going forward but i think most people just want to get on and vote and have a process so let's talk talk about nelson chamisa thirty years mr man and dog was jr is he looking dealing to harness the younger voter younger generation most looking to break free of the mccarthy era definitely i think he's looking at the
6:30 am
younger generation as his core voting constituency and many of the generations do want to see you know something different not all because it's not quite young generation for the opposition and the rural older generation for for for for example if it's more complex than that but certainly chamas will be looking to the younger generation a lot of them for support and then they are coming out and attending his rallies next year good to talk to you let's hope for a good peaceful and free and fair election in zimbabwe and parliaments tom thank you so much. qatar's foreign minister has held talks with the u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o in washington d.c. the discuss the saudi and u.a.e. led blockade against qatar which is now into its second year called on blockading countries to end the embargo two months ago mohammed bin tunney says qatar is willing to meet with all the feuding parties if a clear plan is made for the talks. just yet we consider the gulf
