and germany have agreed to resettle them the white helmets were founded in two thousand and fourteen to rescue civilians injured in attacks on rebel held territory the group has been backed by the u.s. and other western countries there was a fear what would happen to them once their area fell under government control but such a deal doesn't apply to the tens of thousands of civilians who fled the fighting and who remain behind closed borders their areas under opposition control for years now back in the hands of the syrian government and one of the latest deals rebels in syria's southwest region of connecticut are we should deal with the government on friday buses have been leaving from can answer to northern syria where two are seeing actually in my opinion is bought off the engine mounts with have been agreed between. them to mush out dollars in order to clear. the area for any presence that's is not that might not be happy with the syrian government has now
taken back most of this southwestern part of the country. the only area left under opposition control is the area behind me and it's controlled by a group affiliated with ice so there is no deal in the offering for them now we've been seeing multiple airstrikes is also seen jets in the sky it seems the government's final battle for southern syria is underway stephanie decker al-jazeera in the israeli occupied golan heights. campaigning for what's expected to be one of the most contentious pakistani general elections has been hit by more violence a candidate for the tariq insaaf party which is led by the former cricketer imran khan was killed in an attack in khan in the northwest of the country the candidate died of his injuries after his car was targeted by a suicide bomber he was a former agriculture minister three other people were injured and pakistani media
reporting that twenty people have been hit been injured rather in a great attack at the. party's election office in question on sunday it's the second attack on the party in the past ten days security forces are searching for the attacker has been a sama is a journalist and filmmaker focusing on pakistan she says the attacks are meant to scare away voters. pakistan's elections are often been punctuated by violence the previous elections we had to present routine were also preceded by a lot of violence there's a lot of attempts to keep people from participating in the democratic political process and yet people to are not in record numbers in the in the previous two elections to vote this this by threats of that violence. this time i think the violence is i don't know the numbers but we had similar violence in the
previous polls as well and i think the b. idea is the focus of a fellow by. that claim such attacks and they seem to not want or they clearly do not want pakistan to move towards democracy well democracy as you know has been pointed out time and again is not an event it's a process and in order for this process to be successful you have to have elections not once but multiple times with governments having being allowed to complete that in new york which as you know has never really happened in pakistan except in the last decade the first time was when the government of two thousand and eight election in two thousand and eight handed over power to the government elected in two thousand and thirteen which was that of the man behind bars gardley nawaz sharif. so this process is only just barely begun it's a very nascent process in buckets and in non-con actually has not really participated in this process except because he boycotted the two thousand and eight elections so the first time he actually participated was in the two thousand and thirteen election there now but the second time he's participating now president of
an evil mccrone of france has ordered a reshuffle of his staff after a video showing his former bodyguard assaulting a protester on exam on allah seen his the rights of mccrum has been charged with gang violence after he was identified beating a protester he's now under investigation for interfering in public service and wearing a police badge illegally president mccrum sacked on friday after the video of the assault went viral. a tiny coastal village in greenland has been on edge for more than a week now after an eleven million ton ice bug drifted next to the settlement if it breaks up people feel the waves could wipe out their community does their ethnic clock reports now from the remote if you have village. helicopters in these parts of the lifeline for small innuit communities they provide all services especially in times of crisis.
but those thousands of icebergs the result of the outflow of nearby class is draining the greenland ice sheet. then the iceberg in question it is huge one hundred meters by three hundred white behind it you can make out the settlement of in our suits spooled off a hillside. on the ground a community of around one hundred seventy people there are families there are children there bread is on the war says they fish and hunt and they used to icebergs drifting by but never this close and never this big. but by me double normally icebergs are not that high their low white but this one is very high which made it frightening. this video shows chunks of ice cascading into the water causing life threatening waves to crash into the shoreline several homes had to be evacuated there was concern for the villages power generator and
fuel tanks and boats were dragged up the hillside. the major route towards the iceberg that has now shifted away from the harbor entrance not as dangerous as it was but still presenting a threat it could cause at any time fisherman couldn't it isn't has never seen it but this big so close. you can get on it actually came pretty fast in front of the village they saw the danger and so they evacuated some houses and prepared for what could happen between now and then there was a big wind and it blew it outside here like it's hate the iceberg will now slowly head out to sea nudged along by wind and current evacuated residents are back in their homes life is beginning to return to normal making the most of the short summer a quiet time for the dog's head of a winter of sledge pulling they think about how dangerous it is to be here when there's a big iceberg in front of them. and they cannot really sleep because they're kind
of expecting that he's going to calvin a minute or an hour or so of course they're like they cannot really rest but they won't change their lives for nothing and they want to stay here because of the fishing on foot to movies and hunting over the unities all year round so what to make of all this there's no way that you can attribute this iceberg to climate change specifically there's no doubt that there's a growing incidence of ice bread production here in greenland over the last one hundred years and occurrences and threats like this one may continue as time goes on. and add to that the changing sea ice conditions these communities are witnessing it is very apparent that things are shifting here in the arctic where global temperature change is more keenly felt than anywhere else. al jazeera in a suit green. another shock for german football just weeks after the country was dumped
