president salva kiir rebel leader reg signed the agreement in sudan's capital khartoum on wednesday it calls for the opening of corridors for humanitarian aid the release of political prisoners of the former transitional government within four months at least fifty thousand people have been killed in and around four million displaced since hostilities began in twenty two would speak to al-jazeera as have a woman who's covered the conflict in south sudan extensively she's with me no here in the studio is this. going to hold people. well whether it is going to hold or not people have to hold on to hope that this ceasefire would last they've been mined previous agreements signed on a cease fire and the end of succession of hostilities but none of them have held some of them being broken in as little as twenty four hours after they were signed but this time it's different it's not being brokered by the regional bloc i get this one was brokered by sudan and sudan is has has a lot of interest in south sudan stability mainly the oil fields in south sudan
11:01 am
which are which has to export using sudan's pipelines and therefore pay. and help its economy so sudan brokered this agreement a. cease fire between the president salva kiir and his and his opposition leader direct my char and various other opposition factions but will it hold we will only know once time passes and they start talking about other deals there are supposed to be talks between the different factions in khartoum today and discuss further further agreements that could be signed about. exchange of prisoners access to humanitarian aid and security arrangements how to separate them the forces and withdraw from areas which they shouldn't be because it's not controlled by them so if these talks continue and further agreements are signed then the position of hostilities would likely last but if they feel to agree on withdrawal of forces if they fail to agree on exchange of prisoners then it's likely that this cessation of hostilities or this. i would collapse again and would see them fighting off again
11:02 am
ok you say that this has been negotiated by the leaders themselves and that things are different this time but what about people on the ground in south sudan actually feel about what's been negotiated in the name if you like while a lot of people a lot of people in south sudan really do want peace to come but if you talk to them their priority is not just having peace and into conflict a lot of them want to go back home a lot of them want to see justice being served for the for their for their fat loved one third they have lost for the women who have been raped for the children who have been displaced and been out of school for nearly four years some some of them even more than that so for them just ending the conflict is not enough they want to see justice being served they want to see what they have lost in some ways then return to them are compensated so yes while there is a ceasefire at the moment and it's only a few hours old there are a lot of other concerns for south sudanese live on the ground i'm pretty sure they're welcome this this time of agreement but for them it doesn't hold any
11:03 am
meaning if it's not if if no compensation is given if no justice is provided if they can go back home and return to their lives many thanks indeed are serious he will move. here with the news from syria still to come on the program we look at who's taking care of the children as uganda shuts down hundreds of orphanages. the photo journalist who's facing the death penalty just for doing his job during a military crackdown in egypt. and later the biggest star in basketball the bron james has a huge decision to make. it's been a week now since twelve young footballers and a coach went missing in a cave that subsequently flooded in more than thailand more than a thousand soldiers and border guards have joined the search for them
11:04 am
a new opening to the underground cave complex was discovered on friday raising hopes that the boys may still be found alive let's go live now to. scott hyde is at that cave complex where that search and rescue operation is still underway scott what's the latest. the latest is you know whenever we walk up this hill behind me that leads up to the mouth of the cave when you hear that. big diesel generator behind me it's always a good sign. it's a big structure and you can see the water coming out that has been the case for the last two days friday and today on saturday that's a good sign that means that everything is going well in the caves at least they're able to pump some of the water out we're hearing here right at the mouth of the cave that there are. standing by when that water level gets low enough and they're able to go back and continue with their exploration pushing forward into the cave
11:05 am
complex now we don't know when they're going to be able to go back in today but we know that the pumps have been working there hasn't been much overnight rain this morning it has been fairly clear and that leads to the second prong of this. operation you alluded to that another vertical tunnel if you will the chimney was found on friday that is being explored today because of the the better cloud cover they're able to bring up some drilling equipment some skin equipment by helicopter so hopefully that will expedite this process we know that the chief of the national police the national police is up there orchestrating that operation and again what they're trying to do with that adrian is they're trying to drill down or at least explore down and hopefully that will lead into one of these bigger parts of the cave complex and they can drop maybe equipment hopefully some climbers down there and then explore from that because the way they're getting in this way the main mouth of the cave is slow going right now adrian the prime minister was there
11:06 am
yesterday urging the families of the boys to keep the faith look scott it's been a week now these these boys and their coach they have supplies with them survival gear how much longer can this go on. well that's a very good question and you know when we see you know they're still family members here have been here for a week now they actually are in two different locations just up the hill from where i am now there's a tent area where they have been most of them for the week but now there's a structure part of this national park complex is a structure in the back that is now blocked off that's where they're able to sleep they've been staying here again for a week there's always been a buddhist monk every time i walk by they're holding up prayer you can see on their faces that it's very very draining week for them emotional week for them we have been in touch with for fathers who are working together we saw them a couple of days ago they've gone up into the hills on their own they want to see
11:07 am
how this rescue operation is going on they feel as though it's not going on as quickly as they would like obviously so they want to do something to help something to expedite the process they're going up in the hills again today so that's how some of the families are dealing with the situation but yet as you can. it's really really drink process the prime minister did. console them a bit but you know there's only so much you can do when you know there's been no word you know we maybe forty eight hours after they went missing we had some clues by some of the divers back on the water level was much lower than it is now they found some hand prints and some footprints but that has been days there has been no other clue no other indication since then adrian. many thanks indeed i'm serious call tidal they're reporting live from china right. at least two soldiers and a civilian have been killed in an attack on a military base in central mali fighters drove a vehicle rigged with explosives onto the base and opened fire on money and troops two of the attackers were killed the compound houses the headquarters of the g five
