child soldiers. on al-jazeera. this is al jazeera. hello i'm adrian finighan this is the news hour live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes european union plans to resolve the migration issue in disarray with italy threatening to veto a potential deal. the u.k. tolerated the inexcusable treatment of u.s. detainees after the nine eleven attacks according to a new report. the emails that link donald trump from the united arab emirates a report claims close ties influence over diplomatic appointments. and in support colombia and japan joined the final sixteen as the world cup ready for the knockout

phase. it's only as putting pressure on its e.u. partners to reach common ground on how to deal with the influx of refugees and migrants to europe in a dramatic escalation in tension between member states the newly elected populist italian prime minister she is epic conti has blocked a joint statement and threatened to veto the entire agenda if no solution is found lawrence lee reports from brussels. the european union is in trouble and they although it's the italians are now siding with the hungarian austrians in the front against migration the greeks are trying to keep up a spirit of unity with the spanish and the french and the country trying to keep it all from falling apart is generally that chancellor had already spelt out the danger to the entire block in a speech before she arrived. but. europe faces many challenges but migration could

become the make or break one for the e.u. i that we manage it so others in africa believe that we're guided by values and believe in multilateralism not unilaterally or nobody will believe any longer in the system of values that has made a strong. given that there's no possible way anymore that the bloc can find a united position on sharing refugees are now having to resort to arrangements between individual countries prepared to help so for example greece which has already failed to find accommodation for many who fled from turkey says it will take back more from germany to ease the political pressure on merkel from inside her own coalition. others repeated their calls for a calm approach to diffuse internal tensions many are talking about the crisis we're talking about numbers that at the moment are more or less eighty percent less than it was it was last year so we're talking about numbers that are perfectly
5:03 am
manageable we shouldn't get into a panic state of minds our policies in the last year or so have started to produce results now they need to be sustained and it is extremely important that we do this in cooperation and partnership with our friends and countries of origin transit in particular in africa we're investing a lot in africa now member states need to do the same. but not only could they not make progress on issues like external holding centers in places like albania the size of the rest became clear as italy vetoed a planned joint statement from the political bloc putting yet more pressure on chancellor merkel with one day left of the summit. it's worth remembering that the founding principle of the entire european project was and remains ever closer union and yet migration threatens to break that now because many countries either don't have the money or lack the political will to help anymore there is now a battle on for the heart and soul of the european union. this isn't
5:04 am
a refugee crisis it's really a crisis about the rule of law and humanitarian standards in the part of the world which claims to be the most moral does it do its people want to be that anymore these are big questions with no satisfactory solutions the recently of zero in brussels italy is one of the countries that refused to let in a rescue ship carrying more than two hundred migrants the lifeline eventually docked in malta after being stranded at sea for six days about it's the subject of an investigation with police questioning whether it was assisting smugglers johnson reports from valetta. the lifelines pull into the crew spent the day washing down the boat taking out rubbish accumulated during its six days at sea mission lifeline which owns the vessel has a more complicated cleanup of its reputation it's interactive accused of colluding to smuggle people to europe after it refused to hand over two hundred thirty three
5:05 am
rescued refugees to libyan authorities we picked up them on the twenty first of two in. about eighteen and twenty two miles. from the libyan coast so in international waters off the. coast guard boat approached us and told us to hand out the migrants to them they wanted to bring back some migrants to libya where they put to jail so we said well there's no way for us to hand outs of migrants. refused to the lifeline a safe port in italy preferring to send refugees to camps in libya what to do is illegal so we think that italian is breaking international law because libya is not safe and people are crowded in in such prisons and.
5:06 am
face monitress and say i and tortured and raped so we are sure that this is not a solution and should stop very very soon the plight of the lifeline embodies the broader european debate about whether to rescue refugees at sea and bring them to save posts in the european union or ship them to camps in so-called safe countries stablished humanitarian practice is that of bringing them to europe but there is disagreement on put in sharing and a growing chorus of hardliners supports outsourcing humanitarianism to others the lifelines refugees are now at. this processing center in walesa lucky to have their asylum interviews in europe from their balconies they can see the freedom little weights them unemployment television and dominoes in this ship breaker's gold is safe but not a life and some european attitudes are hardening against freelance search and rescuers who would help bring others here malta's prime minister
5:07 am
a liberal compared to some e.u. leaders holds this against them the captain of the said there so who went against international rules and ignored directions being given by the italian authorities who were coordinating the rescue it appears that european search and rescue has become a political not a humanitarian act jumps out of al-jazeera volatile. british spies have been accused of inexcusable actions related to the detention of hundreds of people by the us after the nine eleven attacks a report by the u.k. parliamentary committee found that they knew about suspected mistreatment but continued to supply intelligence paul brennan reports. the brutal methods of western intelligence agencies after nine eleven included waterboarding starvation sleep deprivation stress positions verbal threats and physical assaults on the u.k.'s intelligence and security committee set out to uncover the extent of british
5:08 am
involvement after fifty hours of testimony and forty thousand documents the conclusion was clear in our view the united kingdom tolerated actions and took others that we regard as inexcusable. the committee declared itself astonished that despite rendition being illegal in britain there is still no clear policy on the u.k.'s involvement in the practice by other countries via the u.k. and while there was no smoking gun showing british agents had physically abused detainees there were hundreds of cases where agents had been involved in interrogations despite knowing or suspecting mistreatment but crucially the committee was prevented from talking to the agents involved we want to talk to the people who were in those posts back at that time and in addition to that we want to talk to people who were in the field at that time because without it you call fill in potential gaps campaigners say it's time for a judge led independent inquiry which has greater powers to demand disclosure and
5:09 am
compel witnesses to attend this is something the government promised back in twenty ten it has stalled but the government has until now always maintained that this will be the position once the i se has finished its inquiry and so we now look to theresa may to establish that inquiry without delay the response from the intelligence agencies has come from an interview with an unnamed agent here at m i six in which they said that the agencies were unprepared for the upsurge in counterterrorism work which followed nine eleven that they had who had specific training in conducting detainee interviews but the tough important lessons had been learned and they did things very differently now. the abuses at abu ghraib bag graham kuantan him obey in the numerous so-called black sites around the world led to a global scandal and now even the united states prohibits its agents from using cruel or degrading interrogation methods but rendition and detentions are still going on
5:10 am
and the oversight of them remains murky paul brennan al-jazeera london lawrence korb is a former u.s. assistant secretary of defense he says it's surprising that the u.k. lost its moral compass after nine eleven. i know that we had worked with the british but i did not know the extent to which they knew what was happening and still went ahead and did it i thought maybe they had said no we won't get involved given you know what the united states is doing whether in a rock album grave or in guantanamo i did not realize that the the british you know were going along with this particularly since we were the ones who were taxed so after that the united states sort of lost its moral compass i am somewhat surprised that the united kingdom did as well a deal was in afghanistan i know that in iraq in addition to the british we have for example the polish government was there we had some countries from
5:11 am
central and south america so it'll be interesting to see to what extent they were involved now the u.k. was our major ally particularly in iraq so i hope that they were the ones who work more closely with us a lot of these other governments didn't do it but this is something we're going to have to live with for a while and what it does is rather than getting the information because when you're tortured you'll tell them anything that you want it creates more terrorists because people say see this is what they did to was so therefore we're justified in in doing whatever we need to to retaliate against them. some of donald trump's assistants had closer ties to the united arab emirates than previously thought according to a new report the middle east eyes says it has e-mails revealing that aides were willing to exchange inside information with the m.r.c. ambassador to the u.s.
5:12 am
during the twenty sixteen election campaign alan fischer reports donald trump. a key figure in all of this according to the e-mails the website middle east eyes says if the pain is tom brock a prominent and influential businessman he's an old friend of donald trump's and raised huge sums of money for his election campaign he was allegedly exchanging e-mails with us of the united arab emirates ambassador to washington. it's claimed the ambassador managed to change the republican party platform and its cleveland convention the first draft had a call to release twenty eight pages of classified documents from the nine eleven inquiry which were potentially embarrassing to saudi arabia a close ally that was removed. after daughter i'm surprised election victory in november twenty sixth in its alleged ambassador a tie but pushed for insights on who would be moved into key diplomatic intelligence and defense positions in the new administration it was his intention
5:13 am
to brief his bosses including the emma rattie crone prince mohammed bin zayed but then he also apparently offered his own suggestions middle east i says in one e-mail you wrote to tom barac about george w. bush's former homeland security advisor fran townsend i saw her last night and immediately thought she would be huge asset to you she would make a perfect director of national intelligence or d h s secretary she would hit the ground running on every issue tones and in fact made the shortlist for a key intelligence position she was considered as a possible f.b.i. director when james comey was fired middle east i suggest the e-mail exchange may be of interest to the ongoing millet inquiry into potential. russian interference into the twenty sixteen presidential election and links to the trump campaign he's looking for not just contact but for flows of money because what he's basically investigating is whether any foreign policy started with russia but he's now
5:14 am
continuing with you know emirates and saudi arabia whether any foreign government actively contributed financially to translation campaign and that would be illegal under u.s. law it's claimed crime prince been desired canceled a planned trip to washington last month because he was caught up in the quiet the crown prince did meet donald trump at the white house in may last year to morrow at eleven thirty was interviewed by the miller investigation in december he actually recommended paul manifold as trump's campaign manager one of four no faces several charges arising out of the miller investigation. alan fischer al-jazeera washington . josh is the executive director of the arab center of washington d.c. based think tank he says the latest leak exposes how u.s. politicians sell themselves out election campaigns. i think they have that chilling
5:15 am
effect on the relationship going back to the earlier leaks with regards to some of the steps taken by the best that are useful are here in washington some of the people he affiliated with including previous collection of e-mails affiliated with a person named george notter now you have this additional layer of revelation basically coming close to showing some if you will. interference in the electoral process in this country and the kind of friendliness of people in campaigns to sell out i mean when you when you have a key advisor to an american presidential campaign talk to a foreign representative and say our agenda as if like his agenda is not that uncommon with his candidate presidential candidate but in common with
5:16 am
a foreign entity that raises some serious doubts about the system and how this foreign influence. spread so deep and so broadly into the electoral system the u.s. deputy attorney general has been accused of withholding documents relating to the f.b.i.'s investigation into donald trump's presidential campaign and this rosenstein why are you keeping information from congress. i'm not keeping any information from congress that it's approved a few minutes mr rosenstein think the house of representatives is going to say something different i don't agree with you congressman i don't believe that's what they're going to say if they do they'll but i think trump's allies in congress had a heated exchange with rosenstein during a special hearing rosenstein has been criticized by trump's supporters for appointing robert mueller to lead a special investigation into links between russia and the trunk campaign this. year with from syria still to come on the program. and you are sure it is i would. be
5:17 am
good news for just. treading carefully pertains prince william and his politically sensitive trip to the middle east. barely room to move the prison cells crammed to the limit in the philippines following the president's latest crackdown this time on loitering. in sport we'll hear from the german team as they return home following the shock exit from the world cup. more overnight rain has raised the water level inside a cave complex in northern thailand where a football team has been missing for six days the twelve boys and their coach have been seen since saturday leaving many families anxious and sprint let's go live now to chang dry in northern thailand scott hyde is watching the search and rescue
5:18 am
operation scott what's the latest. good news this morning the first good news hadn't quite some time that is there is no rain falling right now as you mentioned overnight there was heavy rainfall and that stymied the operations the pumping out the water out of the cave system it is going now one big difference we came here this morning out walking up this road the cave just a couple of hundred meters away i say under a hundred meters. way for me was the the home of generators we might be able to hear in the background that's because those pumps are back in working and you can see the orange vehicle behind me that is a generator truck and we came up the path that leads up to where i'm standing now there was a trickle of water a stream of water on the right hand side that means that they're pumping water out of the caves and that is progress but again you know we look at how vast these caves are how much water was in them there's still a lot of work to be done there's a lot work going on outside the cave system as well they're looking for another hole in another one of these chimneys the thought is today if they find the one
5:19 am
they're looking for they could maybe do another supply drop in there that's in hopes that these twelve boys and their coach are close to that and they might be able to find it they've done that before but that's what they're looking at and also within the next hour we're expecting the prime minister of thailand to come up here he's going to take a look at the operations search and rescue operation will be his first he was out of country until just a couple days ago this will be his first visit here to this many village that has sprouted up right by the mouth of the cave adrian six days this is going on now what sort of impact is this having on the families of the boys. and the families here they're still under attack it's just behind the camera and there is as we've seen every morning and throughout the days there is a buddhist monk carrying out a prayer service right now and that's going to go on probably for a couple of hours and they have been under that tent for these past six days adrian but it is very interesting because of the frustration of lack of information lack of progress on the search and rescue operation some fathers are taking things into
5:20 am
their own hands. yelling into the hills for their missing boys for fathers in the jungle above long cave pleading for their son to come home but the only reply they got was the worrying of a black hawk helicopter after a night of heavy rain the skies cleared in the afternoon allowing helicopters to resume searching from the air. frustrated with the lack. information and progress after five days the fathers went out on their own checking in with the searchers and looking for answers. i want to ask the governor how my boy is and all the other kids where are they do they have food and water that's all i want to know the only thing i can do is just wait and wait till. a group of rescue volunteers from bangkok will use a high tech laser scanner in an attempt to locate the boys they plan to lower down a recently located chimney that they hope lead to deep in the cave. a scan i can
5:21 am
see through layers of ten meters and can show a graphic of the cave if we dropped it in the cave we can see the shape of a human more than a thousand people are now involved in the search including american troops and british diving experts. but was so many bodies and organizations at the scene there are also serious logistical challenges we're deep in the hills that how's this vast cave network while some groups are using high tech to assist in the search and rescue operation some like these from the park service are doing it the old fashioned way they're hiking through these woods to link up with some rescue officials deeper in the hills while the searching continues in the water in the air in the vast jungle families are focused on staying strong because at this stage that's one of few things they have control over al-jazeera chiang rai. the ministry offensive in southwestern syria may have ended at least for twelve hours russian
