pennsylvania a traditionally democratic and blue collar state but one that voted for donald trump and helped propel him into the presidency was. it was the president who broke tradition when he uninvited the philadelphia eagles to the white house after some members of the championship team said they would stay home in protest beating the players against the president we believe. everyone should stand for the national. and put the n.f.l. in the middle unable to come up with a policy that satisfies all sides ahead of opening day it's huge pressure from what trumps reaction is going to be this is the kind of thing that's a great rallying cry for his base and he is going to use it with every ounce that he can to jump on top of this to prove that he's right the his base is right and is active she has the right attitude to have in this regard angry fans have been burning their nike products and calling for
a boycott while the president called on the n.f.l. and nike to stand for the flag on twitter. that's a worry for the end of those ratings are down and a controversy they've yet to tackle. kristen salumi al jazeera philadelphia. the last two football world champions of mets in the. nations at league front strong nil now with germany europe's fifty five same's been divided up it's a full series for the league a competition does entreprise the majority of international friendlies this was fronts his first game since beating croatia in the. world cup final. nine games in all taking place on thursday in his first competitive match in charge of ryan giggs for his wales team beating the republic of ireland for one same's in each group i hope you know why this year with the team finishing top of each section being promoted and the nation finishing bottom dropping down a level the four nation see when the groups in the top tier will advance to a knockout finals event next june and that will decide the first nations really

that operate in opposition territory we also understand that there are a number of families hundreds we understand around a thousand people that have fled some of those areas where those airstrikes are taking place at the moment all eyes remain on tomorrow that is when you have the trilateral meeting in town hall and between iran turkey and russia everyone expects something to be agreed upon there what this offensive what kind of shape it will take whether it will be limited to certain areas certain groups or a wide scale turkey is doing everything to avoid a large scale offensive it is its worst case scenario is to have a fresh influx of flock fresh push of syrian refugees i.d.p.'s towards its borders fleeing the fighting the borders remain closed turkey ready hosts over three million people we went to talk at some of the aid organizations to see how they are preparing for what they say they expect to be a potential bloodbath. over the years the province of it live has offered somewhat
of a refuge for almost a million internally displaced syrians but that seems like it's all about to change with the expected government offensive backed by russia to recapture the last province left under opposition control turkey is preparing for a worst case scenario already met with the head of turkey's red crescent just as he returned from visiting it live if any huge influx. inside or how the two o'clock turkish border now we are preparing the refugee camps in sight syria turkey already hosts more than three million syrian refugees and it doesn't want any more the turkish border with syria has been closed for years unfortunately there is no clear line for armed groups there are. settling down inside and the societies so it is really difficult to target the military points so.
it's been a repetitive cycle for years despite endless political negotiations it's the military option that always seems to come first millions of syrians are homeless in their own country dependent on aid unable to rebuild their lives this fact she belongs to the turkish aid group i know it sends one hundred fifty thousand bags of bread to live every day each piece representing someone who cannot feed themselves the individual desperate stories often getting lost in a mass of lives interrupted. those who fled to the first gaping with credit death now they're facing death once again they have no plan b. in the last few years we've tried to build both a permanent structures for the displaced or today we're back to square one setting a basic intents to prepare for a new wave humanitarian corridors are being proposed by aid agencies but they will remain inside syria and the question remains to where. most people don't want to go to the government controlled areas which surrounded lib and that leaves the turkish
controlled northern part of the country but many are reluctant to go there too no one wants to be displaced again even though aid agencies are preparing for what they fear will be a bloody battle everyone is saying it's still too early to predict how exactly it will unfold that they say will be decided at the negotiating table between iran russia and turkey but there is a consensus that the battle for it will be the final major battle of this war stephanie decker al-jazeera on the turkey syria border. meanwhile the united states has joined france to issue its strongest warning yet that it's prepared to strike syria if government forces use chemical weapons in the offensive against it speaking a short time ago the u.s. arrest the united nations had this to say we have a message for the assad regime and anyone contemplating using chemical weapons in syria in the past eighteen months i have stood on this floor twice promising that the united states would respond to the use of chemical weapons in syria both times
this is ministration followed through the united states and its allies force the assad regime to pay its price for its crimes so we want to take this opportunity to remind assad and his russian and iranian partners you don't want to bet against the united states responding again in her to. some of the chemical weapons in syria today but this is false information that is being that because there are no chemical weapons in syria and i haven't been since missy could come and announced here before the security council in two thousand and fourteen that such was the case in two thousand and fourteen she said categorically here there were no more chemical weapons in syria.
mexican authorities say they found at least one hundred sixty six human skulls in a mass grave site in the coastal state of it are true it's one of the largest mass burial pits evidence coming in the country speak to john home and who's in mexico city what do you know about this is how a christian. one of the of the things that we know about this from a press conference with the state attorney for vera cruz is there were more than one hundred identifications found in this area with the mass graves and in a very sad way that's going to be like gold to some of the families of the disappeared in that state vera cruz because a lot of these people would have been searching for their missing loved ones the years and that's a very tool triss process of course and this might give them a clue to be able to bring some closure to that to that process the other thing make clear by the state attorney was that the police and the state authorities have found that mass graves use very clear on doing that one of the reasons for that probably is that state of authority is not just embarrassed cruise but across the
country as a whole about you've been very negligent in trying to find the disappeared in this country and often it's been left to the mothers to the relatives of those disappear we've been out with them various times digging on their own trying to find their missing loved ones well even the authorities sort of watch all actively obstruct the process and do we have any indication at this stage of sort of the time scale of when these people want to be buried. yet the state's attorney has said that it was more than two years ago is very clear on that as well because it means that this administration in vera cruz wasn't responsible for that but there's also i think you were saying in your introduction there about how big a discovery this is well one of the most shocking things about. this it's not even the biggest mass grave to be discovered in the state of veracruz let alone the governor of the country in general the incoming interior minister we went to one of
the forums for peace that they've just been opening up the new government to try and talk about what to do about the country on the violence so we know that this country is full of musgrave's we know that the moods of full of people that haven't been identified and that's really the dimension of this we're talking about more than thirty seven thousand people have been disappeared in this country that's not just by organized crime but also by mexican security forces some of those people and where as i said before the relatives of the missing have been left to organize themselves and to search for the people on their own so that's something that we'll be looking at to see whether it changes with the incoming administration john home and thank you very much indeed and to a developing story in brazil now the far right presidential candidate yeah abel sonar is undergoing surgery after being stabbed in the stomach his son says he appears to be stable now of sonora was attacked in the city.
