1:00 pm
but he places not to go into one next tuesday with the director general in the who is only like other senior leaders of the detention center in libya and they're not happy. places and that is absolutely what we are seeking to avoid we're seeking to ensure that whatever is disembarkation so-called are set up that they have the food protection of the un's business units there are and i am there as eyes and ears to make sure that they do not become as i as it and probably right into the heart are i visited i visited to attention centers in libya last month and the i.o.m. were there but these detention centers were abominable and these detention centers need to close your eyes to what i am serious here and yet i want is not where we have to clear to decide on in africa i do want to put one point lou to judy on the ghana julia do you understand the fears in europe combined with the reality we now have. the e.u. commission boss saying there are divisions in europe and they're getting bigger one
1:01 pm
third of the italian electorate do not want any more migrants on italian soil at all and their logic i guess would be the builders logic which is you don't go to bed up stairs and leave your front door open because if you do when you come down in the morning your t.v. video on your credit cards are gone so there is this fear that european politicians have to be seen to react to or educate the people of europe how does that happen. well i just thought to quickly point out the protection rates for people arriving in italy firm from libya currently about forty percent overall so i wouldn't say that ninety percent of those arriving. and i would also point out that you know the conditions of the abominable and i think we all agree on that but even if you are in iran were in charge of this offshore sentence the states will still not take these people the end because they're still sending the experts to unite safa cities to screen them afterwards if there's no consensus within europe on asylum rules i
1:02 pm
doubt there will be for caps offshore and so on on your specific question i think the key point is the one the quotas making i mean unfortunately styria has been whipped up by political actors in their own political gain and by and by the media which has been largely complicit in this and it is a textbook example of that even if the numbers were higher than in the cost of last few years it is a country of sixty million it has the capacity to absorb those flows and it has in the past when i had labor migration schemes the reason those people are now arriving regularly is because the jobs that they're actually feeling can't be filled unless they arrive the way they're doing and go through the abuse and be that they're enduring. so i think it's quite useful if you start referring to reality as opposed to pointing out chasing the far right and i think it's indicative that we're seeing a shift from a lot of political leaders and that's why i said that possibly tonight we will see
1:03 pm
a group of countries break away from the sort of copy just train and try to set things on a course of expanded cooperation coalitions of the willing if you want to make the system actually work i was quite disappointed by president to six letter from the european council to further details in which again he referred to the waves of migrants in the crisis that's in golf in europe and so on and i think that kind of language is definitely not helpful. up on that point that you name it they're about in the media is it a question of the we have to have a root and branch reform of the language and also when it comes to the media the reporting of this it occurs to me this is in part about depiction and perception so if you're evening news bulletin issuing you wave after wave picture after picture reports after reports of thousands of people flooding into europe of course there will then be a riding the wave on the part of the right wing perhaps i'm i right around the wrong. sure i mean there are many journalists i mean the station is
1:04 pm
a good example of that you cover this issue extremely well so let's be clear about this it's about the optics of the wider kind of social media and journalism that is treating a a new situation and that situation is happening when the numbers are going down and this is why it is very dangerous to jump into situations where you're processing of sure in dangerous countries i mean i was in libya recently and i saw also pushback from algeria or pushbacks even chin is here and i saw that and i go days so i know what will happen if this starts to to happen in africa you know economic migrants i don't need a reality check about that i'm an immigrant and i know what will happen with this processing and the e.u. will then suffer a lot of values damage because of it because it won't work it will be a mess and i think we're talking about coast guards now as well which is really worrying so i think yes the media and all of the kind of optics make things
1:05 pm
difficult but we have to look at the world as it is and deal with it as it is and if we don't fight back every light this point that was made by our guest here that a coalition of the willing there are some member states you might break off and say look we need a strong external border we need claude i'm going to interrupt you because we are getting towards the top of the hour severe give me for that idea of the optics back to julia people are saying julia if the reaction that we get from politicians during this two day summit fails shane and then fail so the zone of free movement in effect disintegrates there also then saying there's a domino effect of the entire e.u. fails is it that bad particularly if you overlay that with the quotes political crisis that's facing angela merkel. potentially it is but in actual fact second is already suspended i mean that's one of the things about the e.u. we keep talking about things that could happen that are actually already happening
1:06 pm
. get suspended between one member states right now the italian border with france effectively c.-o. this is the border with austrian that's why people are trapped in a city and that's why the resentment is building up in it. so i think the the approach from pragmatists like chance and right now is to go beyond to the rhetoric and the grandstanding and the grand statements about the future of europe and its basis and really work on practical solutions so that we can actually enjoy it in europe and by law actually tried out for agreements that once that notice referred to a probably one of the instruments that will be used to achieve that and yes it will have multiple tires european cooperation but that's already a fact we have to and we have shango we have various arrangements which don't exclude all member states so i think if it works and if it in to show us humane policies for the migrants and policies that respond to those needs as well then i'd i think we should welcome it clearly leonard doyle in geneva it's on the one hand
1:07 pm
you closed borders you put everyone on the bus towards fortress europe or you share the problem angela merkel surely is the only european politician who thinks she can conjoin those two ideas successful because everyone is saying something else all the agencies are saying something else as well because i mean there's a recognition of the us to be a managed process for migration into europe and you simply cannot have on the television screens large vessels floating around pregnant women and stressed people being fished out of the water though isn't helping anything and that certainly is the malaise process and it seems to me that that's what's happening now there's an attempt to correct the problem by the far right are not to get a managed process of it and some of the ideas as has been pointed out in the show are not ours and not the not this very good but that shouldn't say they shouldn't be seeking a managed process of the end of the. it's the partnership with the african union and the european union and for that matter with iran which is led to thirty thousand detained africans primarily from living in detention centers going home in
1:08 pm
the last seven months voluntarily that's the sort of cooperation we need with the african union having a stake the table being engaged as a proper partner i'm not having that feeling that this thing is going to be imposed . for a round that it should or whatever it would take place should be done with with humanitarian concerns of the heart of the journey in brussels in about twenty seconds if they don't come up with something solid at this summit is there a plan b. i think it's a plan b. from certain governments and i think they'll move ahead regardless of what the other ones and hopefully that plan b. will in visits at some point in the next year other issues like the comprehensive management of migration and not just asylum and the small number of incidents you could come to europe because it began to fit in the group continues to be the economic micah's that europe actually needs and who will continue to arrive regardless of how they arrive at they should do so in conditions which are not five and human rights the clock has beaten us as ever here on inside story thanks to all
1:09 pm

1:11 pm
potential of social media to disseminate news. on al-jazeera. the european union reaches a deal on the migration crisis aftermath and talks through the night in brussels. this is. people are dead after a gunman with a vendetta targets a newspaper's newsroom in the u.s. . a temporary truce in the battle for southwestern syria but not before nearly eighty people are killed. and life in the ruins iraq's struggle to rebuild mosul after the defeat of isis.
1:12 pm
will begin in brussels where after weeks of deadlock and division leaders have reached a deal aimed at controlling the influx of refugees into europe they made the breakthrough after negotiating through the night under the deal the bloc will increase funding to address the issue it's an increase will have the option of setting up large holding centers to process migrants the tally and prime minister says his government will decide later whether it is print pead to do that as well as processing centers and italy and greece the e.u. has also agreed to consider setting up centers in countries outside the e.u. e.u. leaders plan to crackdown on movement within the block and step up the return of undocumented migrants the number of refugees will be shared out among members on a voluntary basis and they've agreed to share responsibility for migrants who arrive after being rescued at sea the e.u.
1:13 pm
will give turkey more than three billion dollars to take care of syrian refugees living there and those african countries will also get extra cash to help stop migration to europe. sometimes in. europe is not an island and we must be able to face up to this challenge was for many loyal to our values and protected our people and national carrier to not we took an important step many predicted the impossibility of an agreement many predicted the triumph of national solutions tonight we have succeeded in finding the european solution and a way of working in cooperation into something always not into overall after intensive discussion on the most challenging fee for the european union it's a. good sign that we can agree on a common text we have agreed on five guidelines but two are still lacking a common european asylum system but i'm optimistic after today that we can really continue to work even though there is still a lot to be done to bridge the different views and sleigh has been following those talks in brussels and joins me live from them just wondering how plausible this
1:14 pm
plan is and how it's actually going to work. well yes they those are very good questions indeed i think i think for me the headline out of all this jane really is that it's been a victory for the hardliners inside the european union because as you describe in your introduction almost all of the measures that they ended up agreeing on at five o'clock in the morning here are designed to keep people out or if they've come in and they're not welcome to send them back to wherever it was they came from there's only one mention of trying to help africa they talk of a new level of support for africa to try to empower women and stop people from coming in the first place but overwhelmingly it's about strengthening the support for the libyan coast guard strengthen the border with turkey and the breakthrough basis as we now know with this idea that was hatched by the french president to set up these things called holding centers which could be a nice little grease or other places where they basically process people as quickly
1:15 pm
as they can to separate what they would see is the wheat from the chaff resettle people who may have an asylum claim and send everybody else back even if it's not clear quite how they would do that all of this really is a political mechanism to solve the crisis was aimed as appeasing to people really in european politics one the deputy prime minister of italy matteo salvini who's many of his policies seem to boredom more on fascism the real thing else nowadays the italians then said that they were satisfied and so salvini can say look italy is now being listened to the other person it was able to pay zing was. junior coalition partner the horses. who would threaten to bring merkel down over this and the indications are we think that the c.s.u. is relatively happy with this and so it seems probably that it will have rescued angle or merkel's political career too and so in that sense the elements of migration to some is now finished have a brief conversation about breakfast this morning and some talk about the euro zone
1:16 pm
reform and then go home and breathe a sigh of relief the save the block for the time being go or none of it is done is answer the question that angela merkel raised in the sound bite you heard about what sort of union does this want to be does it wants a liberal legal humanitarian policy or doesn't is in the evidence of this summit seems to be precisely retreating from that position lansley thank you please in the u.s. state of maryland say they've captured and identified the man who killed five people inside a newspaper office in the city of annapolis investigators say the gunman specifically targeted journalists al-jazeera is castro reports. police say the shooting that left five people dead on thursday was a targeted attack on a local newspaper the capital gazette journalists caught in the violence described the scene as a war zone with one crime reporter tweeting there is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you're under your desk and then hear the gunman reload police say
1:17 pm
a lone suspect was responsible they captured him inside the newspaper office and have searched his home but there was no gunfire exchanged between officers and the suspect since we were able to get here very quickly but just something for you guys to get to know. you know we have a unified training on how to respond active shooters and that's would be one of the major things that made this a huge success police say the suspect is linked to a social media account that has made threats to the newspaper staff as recently as the day of the attack they say he also deployed a smoke canister to create confusion as he forced his way into the building a sign that this attack was meticulously planned this person was prepared today to come in this person was prepared to shoot people his intent was to fall short exactly why he targeted the local newspaper a staple of day to day life in maryland's capital city for more than two hundred

it's asking the warring parties to stop fighting immediately. the u.n. the u.s. u.k. and france have condemned russia's role in the offensive for you but a year ago the us russia and regional powers had agreed that i was one of the so-called deescalation zones of humanitarian access this done agreement designated that and three other regions as places that would be free of hostilities between rebel groups and forces fighting on behalf of bashar al assad's government the day it can mean b. day that this unprecedented air campaign by the russian jets adopting the scorched earth strategy is in gross violation of a deescalation agreement. but russia's ambassador to the united nations says moscow will no longer uphold the deescalation zone saying it was among the last strongholds of al-qaeda syrian branch and i sold we urge the again the russians the american suchitra damien's were able to to to do it last july they can
