7:09 pm
jail for days. from the high court there's definitely being welcomed right now was the border that crossed the gun tree. live in islamabad thank you. now the u.n. mission in libya has condemned another outbreak of fighting in the capital which is threatening a cease fire that was agreed just two weeks ago the latest on the rest of tripoli into darkness as it disrupted the electricity supply well than sixty people many of them civilians have been killed since fighting broke out between rival groups last month. that's two rival groups vying for control of the area around the city's only functioning at full pace but previously aligned to the un backed government in libya the fighting has shrunk the government's area of control to the center of the capital it also falls many residents to stay indoors in the migrants detained in other parts of the city without food. now we can speak to mohammed el job who is
7:10 pm
seeing and co-founder of libya outlook class of research and consulting firm and he's joining us live via skype from to broke in libya thank you for talking to us what exactly is going on around tripoli. what's going on around tripoli yesterday and today to continue where should what started a few weeks or last month we still have the armored hilly armed groups within the capital but also surrounding the southern and the eastern outskirts of the capital tripoli and the only reason that these groups are not a gauge do not call war was because of a ceasefire abid it project will cease fire agreement that was brought her by the united nations mission in libya. the situation as the events of yesterday have shown that the situation is not sustainable and that
7:11 pm
a poor fled war could actually lead to rot in the capital tripoli at any moment and that more edwards from the international community and from the and the u.n. representative in libya a sense allowing other required urgently in order to defuse these tensions but also in order to hold spoilers to account and make sure that those responsible for the violations of the cease fire agreement are immediately dealt with on an international level and that's us and i notice that the head of the presidential council fires out the raj actually address the security committee of tripoli just yesterday just on tuesday and told them it was their responsibility to make sure that the implementation of this cease fire was carried out officially and are they to blame if there's somebody who can be blamed for this what seems to be a continuous outbreak of violence in and around the tripoli area. the presidential
7:12 pm
council is a very unique entity into italy and their control doesn't want to extend beyond a few kilometers in the capital it's also important to remember the presidential council is largely to blame for many of the security shortcomings but also that the children rooting living conditions in the capital tripoli this presidential council has been in the capital tripoli for more than two years but they have failed to deliver on many of their responsibilities and duties and it is one of the reasons why armed groups that are coming from outside of tripoli are able to garner some support and to go and i support in order to to defeat the forces that are aligned with this presidential so finally can i ask you i mean that the picture that you're painting is of a of a country certainly an area that is teetering on the edge on the edge of civil war yet again so is it feasible then to expect that the people of libya will be able to
7:13 pm
take part in anything resembling a free and fair election as was hoped for by the end of the year. the current environment that we have in libya is definitely not conducive of democratic practices for sure and elections is about competition and you have competition in an environment that so it was with armed groups and weapons in this is a recipe for disaster in my view any free and fair elections will require first of all political and institutional unity of some sort in libya but also very importantly it should entails a.d.d. out a process a process by which these militias and these arms are either collected or somehow controlled otherwise anyone who loses an upcoming election in libya will reject the results and we'll just use the arms and it will be adequate of what we have in the past to keep was in the party when we had the election but then those that lost the election used weapons and they did mobilize their militias and take over took over
7:14 pm
the capital tripoli by force and we ended up in a somewhat of a civil war or a low level civil war at the time the conditions are still the same hour and we must work to change these conditions first and then maybe we can go for elections or a referendum on a constitution or any other democratic step that we will be in visually mohamed el jefe thank you very much now the family of a palestinian man who was killed on tuesday is accusing israel of being behind his death mohammed cutty but rym ali died in custody after being arrested by israeli soldiers they raided his house in the occupied west bank but didn't say why he later died in hospital and his mother says the soldiers beat him to death and then own them in fish fresh out of the day they killed him in ten minutes they woke him up and killed him in just ten minutes when they saw the daylight they carried him and went out when they entered the house they attacked him directly and two israeli

soldiers started beating him. the german car maker b.m.w. says it's planning to shut down its u.k. plant for a month after london leaves the european union it wants to minimize the risk of supply disruption if there's no breaks it deal the announcement comes as british prime minister to resume a heads to a gathering of e.u. leaders in austria trying to shore up support for her breasts it plan lawrence the ripples from munich. if there is a city in europe which signifies muscular success and power then munich is surely it's the economy of the region of bavaria is bigger than all but five countries in the whole european union german exports to britain were worth tens of billions of dollars last year a messy bricks it with no plan could cost the germans a lot so people are worried they also think that britain should be is in danger so relation of it to say a proper light and as he also was
7:16 pm
a big big burden of bureaucracy simply supplementation to make a surge between our members and this is estimate of the cost of this broker suber b. fifty two hundred million every year plus. and if they move production to a different european country they wouldn't have this problem maybe. when to resume a pitches her deal to the european union on thursday the central aim is to persuade them that goods like cars could still move through open borders every other freedom like the movements of people would end and that's the sticking point in britain there's a growing assumption that the european union's about say a vein on all its demands for freedom of movement of everything in order to strike a bargain over breakfast we buy all the german cars say the brits it has of course the germans want to make this work well maybe that's true but maybe it isn't. the
7:17 pm
view from the german bricks it department is that in the end it would be preferable to let britain fall off a cliff and force germany to find new export markets and to break europe's cherished rules of freedom of movement they think the u.k.'s quite important but no more than that there are much more important markets is especially for german cost its first and foremost china where we sell i think one third of. of all german cars it's the united states and other countries as well and so the pritish market is one of the german export markets as if to prove the point b.m.w. announced the day before this summit that it would cease production of the mini in the u.k. for at least a month immediately after breakfast this is all adds to the sense in germany that the u.k. is asleep at the wheel ignoring the attempts of europe to get the car back on the

bodies they recovered are still identifiable so that the families were able to see clearly but as the day drags on some of the bodies the pieces they've recovered are body parts and now the focus really is on d.n.a. and identification of these bodies but from the very beginning the process of identifying the dead has been in place there's a full medical team here on standby they are here for the possibility of still finding survivors they are here for rescuers and even volunteer groups the police has been the first responder in this operation they were here before the typhoon struck they have reminded those who evacuated and they are still here ensuring basically that security is in place and as you can see supplies from donors have been coming in constantly ensuring basically that everything that is needed is here and i'm going to show you just here is where families of those who are missing are
7:20 pm
waiting they have registered their loved ones and given any identifying information that they could but at the end of the day this is really a waiting game that is unbearable for so many here but they simply do not have any choice. but the bigger question here is whether this disaster is actually going to change anything that is because tragedies like this one has been commonplace in a country of grinding poverty and many experts are actually calling on the government to act with political will in the recent statement president of the good that i did said not much can be done when it comes to the issue of small scale mining operations there have been proposals to ben at to to implement a total ban on the go small scale mining operations but that is easier said than done that is because millions of filipinos are dependent on this for their livelihood and many of them basically have more danger in order to earn a living so unless there is really on the turn that they have there is really not
