and as if this attempt and years of conflict will hold karen rebel leader. in neighboring sudan on wednesday it's the first time they met in almost two years threatened with a u.n. arms embargo and sanctions if the fighting didn't stop at least fifty thousand people have been killed and four million forced from their homes it's the civil war began in two thousand and thirteen. morgan has covered the conflict in south sudan extensively she explains the fragility of this agreement this is not the first cease fire agreement to be signed since the conflict started in twenty states and this is. this is the month the green went to be signed and it's not clear yet whether it is going to hold a lot of agreements have been violated nearly every single agreement they've been signed between the two parties and several other factions have been violated sometimes in less than twenty four hours after they resigned so it's not clear yet whether this would. i would actually hold because what both sides said is that they do not want their forces to attack and less attacks and is their attack so
basically in defense and that's what they've been saying all along you will find a cease fire that is signed and then they will come out and say we have been attacked and we fought back in self-defense and the cease fire as well it's not clear if this one is going to hold but people do have cautious optimism that this one will be this could be a little bit different because it has been brokered by sudan not by the regional bloc i get and that it was signed by the two leaders it was signed by the president himself and the leader of the opposition and the representative of the south sudan's opposition alliance so so just because their top figures who have signed the ceasefire they're hoping that it might be a bit stronger than the previous these fires. united nations envoy to yemen says both the warring parties on her in her data have agreed to allow the u.n. to have a role in managing the city's red sea port and saudi u.a.e. military coalition has been fighting for more than two weeks to take the city from the rebels most of the country's imports come through the port to feed millions of
people who desperately need a zero zero zero zero zero elsewhere thousands of people have protests in the who three controlled capital sanaa against the saudi and led campaign the coalition intervened against the who is in early two thousand and fifteen to assist the internationally recognized government. and a rapid rise in the number of yemenis seeking asylum in south korea has prompted the government to tighten its refugee arrival laws more than five hundred aflame to jeju island since december quickly some travel there to meet some of the refugees. the kitchen is the last place adnan imagines himself working. choose this job but i'm in the immigration and they own of this place picked me and it turned out that it was a restaurant so. a qualified health and safety officer he worked for a patrolling company in yemen but was forced to flee the war after he was threatened and tortured by sympathizers of the rebels adnan fled to malaysia on
a tourist visa but soon ran out of money. in december opened a new route to jeju island offering adnan and other yemenis the chance to into south korea through the islands visa free status the sudden influx of yemenis has overwhelmed the local community and the government is acting to stem the flow. in april south korea's justice ministry banned yemenis and j.g. from traveling to other parts of the country and earlier this month excluded yemen from the island's visa waiver program the more than four hundred eighty yemenis still here and they are stuck until the government decides what to do with them the percentage of successful asylum seekers in south korea is around just four st could . take the time to board if you look at just twenty seventeen it's just one percent so the number of applicants are rising with the rate of acceptance is dropping.
many refugees now live in cramped conditions up to twenty min in this under grandchild charity and aid a largely grassroots. there is a negative sentiment towards islam and public opinion so that's something that we need to consider in the long term. more than half a million people have signed a petition urging the government to revise its refugee law. the local government is hoping some including adnan to find jobs. council restaurants are asked if we could hire some of their given our labor shortage at first they didn't even occur to me they were refugees or that there was a civil war raging in yemen it was outside my scope of interest the refugees we spoke to said that brother be at home in yemen and stuck on what they regard as an expensive holiday resort island because of we have this in yemen so there we go back to yemen because you have to leave a new country where you grew up with new music or where you have friends where you
have lived. it is expected it will take up to eight months to process the refugee applications. craig al-jazeera j u r l and south korea. ahead here on this news take a look at mexico's main presidential candidates and what's at stake for both the rich and the working poor. and tactic ahead of a nato summit or does he really mean it supports the u.s. president is thinking of pulling out thousands of troops stationed in germany. plus it will be a knockout game joe will tell you how early hoping to make portugal bites the dust at the world cup. because of health minister says two people one of them a thirteen year old boy have been killed by israeli gunfire the boys reportedly shot in the head straight for the protests on the border with israel more than
three hundred palestinians were injured they've been weakly processed at the border since march against israeli land confiscation and the ongoing occupation one hundred thirty practice palestinians have been killed by israeli live fire and thousands injured since march that hasn't stopped people from going back out to protest and. i had three operations on my leg and a fourth one yesterday from the hospital to participate with my people in today's protest we want to wake up all the sleeping palestinians from gaza to the west bank despite my injury i came to throw stones and burns hoyas and cut the wires of the border fence the pentagon is looking at how much it would cost to withdraw u.s. troops from germany that's according to a report in the washington post germany currently has the largest u.s. military presence in europe including thirty five thousand active duty soldiers since the end of world war two and especially during the cold war years they've seen they've been seen as
a strong terence against the russian invasion of europe but of any withdrawal transfer european officials are said to be considering. if this is a negotiating tactic before donald trump attends the nato summit next month he's repeatedly accused nato allies of not paying enough to live after mccain he joins us from berlin that i might want to is behind these reports of withdrawing u.s. troops but it certainly does play into doubts doesn't it about tom's commitment to nato. will certainly here the view would be that is this about defense spending because that's been the big bug for donald trump as president but also as candidate trump he had railed against germany and what he considered to be the insufficient contributions to defense spending let's be clear two percent of g.d.p. is the target all nato countries had signed up to some time ago that they would get to two percent in a timely manner germany is not going to do that it's something that angle america
has repeatedly stressed it's her aspiration to get to that level but the german is not going to get anywhere near that for some considerable time current events friend defense spending is around somewhere between one point two percent trying to get to one point five percent that's not enough for donald trump people might remember that last month at the white house when president trump meant the secretary general of nato he specifically spoke about germany saying they're not doing enough so it might well be the defense spending is is the beginning of this this this suggestion of the reconsideration of troop deployments that may not necessarily be the end of it ok we got this nato summit in a couple of weeks and then trump's meeting with putin how much does that russia meeting how much is expected to affect trump's approach to nato. well there's a question here isn't there about strategy geopolitics will mr putin president putin be sanguine about the idea of thirty five thousand active duty american
troops being stationed in poland therefore close to the russian federation closer to russia's borders because hitherto when it was talked about boosting its presence in the baltic states in poland well there's been a degree of dissatisfaction in moscow at that suggestion so quite how he's going to treat the idea of thirty five thousand troops perhaps more than that being stationed permanently closer to his ball as well that remains to be seen in one sense but then there's also the other elements that are going on regarding the u.s. russia relationship the fact that president trump has spoken about the situation in crimea the fact that that many member states in the believe that russia annexed the crimea and it should not be allowed to have to have done that we've got away with it whereas president trump has certainly taken a different tone regarding that so so it's very much we need to see these developments through that prism that idea of the dissatisfaction the uneasiness in this nato relationship is going on right now and it's going to very interesting
summit indeed dominic thanks very much for joining us there from valen. now in a document seen by german media chancellor angela merkel says asylum seekers who arrive in germany after first registering and other you countries will be sent to what she describes as anchor centers leaders struck at an eleventh hour deal in brussels on friday they agreed to send migrants rescued at sea to centers across the block was reported plan is exactly the strategy had coalition allies are demanding. meanwhile more than one hundred refugees and migrants are missing fare drowned after their boat capsized of libya's west coast are warning that some viewers may find these following images disturbing. the bodies of three young children have been recovered at least sixteen people survived a spanish rescue ship says it was told by a time officials to let the libyan coast guard respond to the distress call from the boat and when it's described the vessel is old and overloaded.
with. there were one hundred twenty people on board on their way the front broke a wooden piece pierced it and then the boat started sinking and the water started to rise everyone died women children elderly people mean all of them died. at first i was surprised with this boat because i was told it was eight meters and could hold twenty people when i tried to leave they beat me. i was forced to get on board families with children were in miserable conditions it was full of about one hundred twenty to one hundred fifty people it was very crowded and the conductor could not even see in front of him. and the gypsum court has delayed the final ruling in a mass trial involving seven hundred people until next month. of photojournalist mark wood who's facing the death penalty thank you for being involved in the sitting in two thousand and thirteen that was broken up by the military the court plane the delay on what it calls security reasons. time is running out for pakistan
to expel extend the right for more than a million afghan refugees to stay in the country for over a year pakistan's government has set and extended deadlines requiring all registered afghan refugees to cross back over the border if asked as that deadline is not extended they'll be legally required to leave immediately some of lived in pakistan for decades with many having fled afghanistan when the soviet union invaded in one nine hundred seventy nine many of them have never been in afghanistan and were born and raised in refugee camps in recent months the pakistani government has taken a more hardline attitude with ministers describing refugees as a burden that economy that their economy can no longer maintain after previous deadlines pass the united nations warn that voluntary return of refugees to other states is against international principles carter is head of the program for norwegian refugee council in afghanistan afghanistan he joins us now from kabul thanks for being with us how likely is it do you think that this deadline will be
extended again. did say yes thank you we we are hopeful that it will be extended at least this time around on the cabinet decision today tempers do not seem so high levels for us mint reportedly relatively low so so we're hopeful that least six or twelve month extension will be granted but. we were in this situation two years ago when over six hundred thousand refugees suddenly felt forced to return back to afghanistan from pakistan at this point in the year why do you think the pakistani government is taking the hardline stance these last few years when these refugees have been there for around forty years. that's right pakistan and the authorities there have been incredibly generous. over the last four decades has been the largest and oldest refugee crisis in the world for many
years. and it's only in the last few years that the patience is beginning to wear thin. economically and politically a sensitive sensitive issue in pakistan right now but we hope that pakistan will continue to show the same levels of generosity and hospitality as it is not yet safe more fit for afghans to feel for storing courage to return back to afghanistan right and what's the effect of these sort of ad hoc or rather predictable short term extensions both on so the for the refugees themselves on their mental state and also on the aid groups trying to help them. its course a lot of uncertainty for families many of for misuse you mentioned that never grown up in afghanistan so it's it causes a lot of anguish there's a lot of panic we when i was in eastern afghanistan where hundreds of. it will
return a couple of years ago people were very unprepared the conditions that they were coming back to really were very unfair it's thousands of families sleeping in the open or crowded into unfinished buildings children sleeping in mud next to livestock heavily pregnant women feeling forced to suddenly return some of them giving birth during that sudden movement back to afghanistan so this unpredictability really needs to change people need to be given a proper chance of restarting their life and ideally after hostilities in afghanistan have ceased that would require us to look more at two three four years time wise right ok. thanks for joining us there from kabul. the region is there with the weather in just a moment and then. you take a look at what will happen to children in uganda has often it is a paying close down. and security stepped up as pilgrims make their way to one of
