tv Week 3 The Battle Beyond Al Jazeera June 30, 2018 4:00am-5:00am +03
in attacking the g five well i think it's obviously a huge concern of the the force is just being set up it hasn't reached its full capacity yet and its headquarters was attacked in just three days the leaders of the of the g five countries that you just mentioned are meeting french president amendment to discuss continued funding for this for this force so obviously the attack on the headquarters today is going to be foremost on that on the minds of those of of those leaders in a couple days this group gets funded as i understand it quite it's a large large amount from the u.s. saudi of those also partners i think with from how much do they really need. the foreign assistance not just in money but maybe also on the ground is all the talk about a growing number of foreign troops joining that fight in that act against the
extremist groups in that area well in that area there are multiple forces that are deployed to each contribute to fighting extremist the first is the french force back on that is deployed in that area and has been deployed in different forms since the since islamist groups tried to take the capital bamako back in late two thousand and twelve another force of course is the un's mission. which has deployed again throughout mali and also has a mandate to help mali security forces fight these groups so there's a multitude of actors there and they all try to work together to defeat these defeat these groups that has been some concern about this g five group that's been some talk of abuse extraditions judicial killings of the local people is there a concern that almost playing into the extremist hands by some of the behavior on
the ground. and so i think what you're referring to is just just last week it was found that some of the mounding in forces that are part of the five so how had committed some had killed some civilians and committed other human rights abuses this obviously goes counter to what the objectives of this force are which are to secure the populations and and protect them from these groups so it's obviously a concern that any of the forces involved might be involved in activities that go counter to the to their objectives ok alison thank you so much for speaking to us still to come this half hour concerns there are many rescue workers trying to find twelve young footballers trapped in a flooded cave in thailand and their defiance down in the capital because that publishes a friday edition hours after a gunman killed five members of its. how

and just as never sees the light of day no i knew that i bought into. the team of course you doubt it what the show will help you and the stories that matter and told and the press does not see. and neither are we. hello i'm citizen in london with the top stories harold as they are around a hundred migrants are missing feared dead after that boat capsized in the mediterranean as it headed to europe libya's coast guard also recovered the bodies of three young children it happened just hours after european leaders signed a compromise deal time to preventing such journeys from north africa but while some of those leaders are calling for a green meant breakthrough details are vague on how it's actually going to work
once they has more from brussels. when the future of the european union may be at stake it's worth staying up all night to save its so that's what they did. emerging warily at five in the morning the french president suggested they had bridged the gap many thought impossible. position. europe is not an island and we must be able to face up to this challenge was remaining loyal to our values protect our people and national cohesion tonight 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 a european solution and a way of working in cooperation. micron will take the credit for winning the rebellious it's how he and governments around the breakthrough policy is to set up sensors at which migrants and refugees will be screened and either sent home or resettled among countries prepared to have them even if it isn't clear how the italians who would also demanded reform of wider asylum rules then signals their
consent. at the end of the european council of a more responsible and more united europe italy is no longer alone. and keeping the hardliners happy extended to germany as well where chancellor merkel's political future has been in the balance the indications seem to be that the right wingers in her coalition seem satisfied that germany will be better protected from mass refugee flows the mother. herself knowledged the vast rift in europe about humanitarian values this is a good 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 of the moves like strengthening support for the libyan coast guard will be condemned by humanitarian organizations as europe turning its back on its legal obligations if this were
a success it was only in that it staved off the apparent imminent collapse of the european union under the weight of migration but in doing so it gave more weight to the populist right wing in europe a further retreat from the liberal values the european union is so fond of proclaiming. and is over the final communique was long gone wishes and very short on promises about how to accomplish them this may have averted a crisis for now but europe remains a political unit deeply unhappy lawrence lee al-jazeera brussels jordanian officials say a new cease fire has been agreed for southern syria this after a twelve hour truce and in there are province in one thousand nations says the number of people displaced in the latest fighting there has tripled to one hundred sixty five thousand syrian government troops and russian forces have been battling against the free syrian army for the past ten days before the overnight cease fire began at least eighty people were killed in their strikes on say the u.n.

we will maintain the finest fighting force of the world has ever known the world has ever known the world has ever known the world has ever known so i would doubt it personally the only two people who would most credit i just don't like the image that it conjures up in most people's mind. it's like any other thing in the global finance it's just the military trade. contractors don't like hard time around. my dad pretty good. for missing young government perspective the iraqi clinton was considered
a good deal. after the article you were on the it's more than thirty years closely. we have a mismatch between the way we imagine the war to be and the reality of the twenty first century can we do a little or could we find someone that we do it for boardroom don't you get what you pay for. b.b.c. world service and u.s. troops have left iraq. and it continues to maintain a high passes in the country with the largest u.s. embassy in the world the situation in the kurdish john the center for crucial for
the international troops to go under control over to the afghan forces fish if you're just attrition really critical we country. says throughout american oxford it was stopped by my car down south and you're right. this is a trap as one commander says he wants. so yeah like if i was these other funds or even friends. some of them they are worried after all that stuff. they know right now down there tonight yeah. how many of the persons that you're sending out. the child soldiers and i found seven i can't tell i can tell you that i mean if you think i can't. i can tell you're dealing with many people i'm going to say i this and this and this.
president inspecting small. groups. because. it was. in the building well. enough for a good. deal for us and i will too. this is a tradition if you don't know for it with a stick from the spear with arrows. that's the tradition if you are trying to simulate this me disoriented them say well it could i'm sure but that isn't the case some may be critical of people who used to be fighting when they were very
young that they all go to war you think that's a problem not that's not our problem under from it is yes that must have shown before take it's not from an absence yes it must have. and even if they had started when they would fulfill it in the thirties if that's not a problem wasn't a problem just as the job as they are here is carrying. the sand guides well yes with classes and they got the school fees training. the army never got in the summit and resorted to using uganda because of their ideas being that people who isn't what you tell me there is would be too andy and as an english.
the private military industry is a part of how the country is in fights wars today. u.s. government doesn't track the number of contractors it uses in places iraq or afghanistan we know it's a lot we don't really know exactly how many. i spent several years working within the industry i have a military background and one of the differences between being a soldier i found and being a private military contractor is that when you work for the u.s. military or any military you take a sacred oath that you're going to serve and fight for your country and necessary die to protect a way of life one that you believe in i am an american soldier i'm
a warrior and a member of a team. that will never accept defeat. at least i will never win i'll never leave a fine comrade it's the complete opposite in a private military world you look at the budget first the loyalty of these companies and these businessmen's change depending on market forces. we operate in the world's challenging complex emerging markets the middle east is absolutely cool for other business today. the sooner we can are in pal and we perform in the right in. this industry is not just what you see is what you get.
