and this is part of the process of them trying to pump out all the water that's been going into this cave complex that's preventing them to get to those stranded footballers and their coats we know that there have been other efforts that have been ongoing you know at the end of day tuesday there were three kilometers in pumping some of the water out and they had electrical lines and strong in there too to run the pump system here because of the heavy rain overnight tuesday wednesday and wednesday morning that they had to retreat a little bit we don't know how far back but they've been stymied they've had to come back and kind of reduce their footprint inside this cave complex we also know that there are two helicopters standing by to go up as soon as the cloud cover clears one is a blackhawk helicopter that seal members will go in and with the idea hopefully there's some openings in this cave complex masses that those eight kilometers in that there could be some openings where they could repel down and try the rescue effort that way the seal team members we know now that there are forty one on site other army troops have been marching through the jungle around this area also
trying to find any way in now something that happened on wednesday morning you know this is a football team a youth football team from the local area here some of the other members of that team came here to talk to rescue officials this is a facility that they have used as a team as a training facility but also as recreation in fact when they came here on saturday afternoon it was after a practice met the team members here coming to talk to the rescue workers to give them any information they can but also to sit with other family members who are here still and have been here since saturday afternoon the u.n. says it's counted more than eight hundred cases of children being used in the fighting in yemen the new report accuses both who the rebels and the coalition of recruiting child soldiers some as young as eleven years old. it says up to seventy six were used on the front lines many guarded checkpoints and government buildings took equipment to military positions ibrahim qatari is a political analyst who specializes in the yemen conflict and he says the u.n. has an obligation to hold those who recruit child soldiers to account the
recruitment of sholden and using them as shields and bringing them to the. you know word zones two to being gay than the conflicts and the wars and the killings is a crime against humanity all parties the saudi led coalition and the whole of these have committed crimes and crimes against humanity and yemen and in particular against shoulder they got them out they will move them out of schools they recruit them they do all kind of violations that actually is a violation to the local and the international laws and i think this is all these people you know militias and the coalition need to be held accountable this is not new and to be honest this is only a fraction of what is being done to the shoulder and the future of yemen these are the future of yemen and to kill the future of yemen killing the sheldon of yemen and without any accountability without any transparency this is a serious problem going into the future and i think the un has an obligation to do
what's right for yemenis and to hold those who committed these crimes accountable israeli defense forces say a rockets being fired from gaza towards their territory that comes after an israeli jet targeted a vehicle they say was used to launch burning balloons from the northern part of the strip into israel tensions been high in the area since late march when palestinians began protesting at israel's border with gaza israeli forces have shot and killed one hundred thirty two protesters. the united nations aviation agency says it will consider doha's request to have the blockade imposed against qatar declared illegal the international civil aviation organization rejected objections filed by the four countries behind the ban a final decision is expected before the end of the week and a lack reports from montreal. it's been almost a year since catch our first came here to the international civil aviation organization to have the blockade against it declared illegal under international
law the countries that are blockading qatar egypt bahrain saudi arabia and the u.a.e. filed counter complaints to try to say that i could not hear. concerns but according to catalyze minister of transport the organization has dismissed those complaints and we'll hear them we'll hear what catherine has to say just. the next step is that the council of international civil aviation organization will announce its final decisions on friday meanwhile will submit more documents in order to find solutions but i think the blockading countries will file an objection arguing that the council is not competent to consider kottaras complaints they're requesting the case be transferred to the international court of justice so we're confident justice is on our side. the current session of the governing council of the international civil aviation organization ends on friday so if there is to be a decision on this it's going to have to happen before then because then i k o
basically takes off the rest of the summer it's also not clear whether this organization which is both publicize shy and not normally involved in disputes between member states without trying to achieve consensus is going to take a quick decision or whether it might stretch it out to september when it meets again it's there's no doubt the blockade has had an effect on cateye are in qatar airways its flagship carrier reporting some hits on its profits but also i k i think is probably never had a situation like this in front of it before so there may be some sense of urgency to get this done sooner rather than later if you oprah says it's time for decades of hostility without a trade to end the two sides are holding talks for the first time since diplomatic ties were severed twenty years ago hammad out of reports from the capital addis ababa. a warm welcome for members of the fost trained in addition to visit the disc in almost two decades they here to discuss peace
