for a peace conference and. the summit to end seven years of fighting and division but with so many competing interests inside and outside the country pace and libya could prove. the latest attempt to bring peace to libya picks up where many of those have failed with leaders and representatives from thirty countries gathering just across the mediterranean in sicily one key goal here to get behind a new u.n. led election timeline beginning early next year with a dialogue among libyans themselves to decide what kind of democracy they want we want them clearly doing the national conference what kind of election do you want. because we don't have the house of representatives has been.
has been facing. legislative i think we need. a presentation. when nato bombs help rebel fighters to overthrow gadhafi in two thousand and eleven it was far from the libya's troubles. seven years later the country is divided between warring militant groups and opposing political factions each claiming control of vast swathes of territory the peace conference in poland brings together libya's major opposing sides as well as some of the key foreign powers with influence in the region so fires raj who heads the un backed government in and around tripoli will be joined by general. whose breakaway army holds much of the east battling for control of the south meanwhile are ethnic tribes and cross border
criminal gangs while the un backs the tripoli government general haftar has the support of egypt and russia the united states is there to of course keen to bolster its influence in the resource rich north african country libya's difficulties of further complicated by the competing interests of european union rivals italy and france both have energy investments in the country and back opposite sides while france wants to stabilize the lawless south with its proximity to former french colonies in the hell italy wants an end to the flow of migrants across the mediterranean if all concerned can rally behind the new un plan that would be a minimal measure of success here but it would amount to little more than a contribution to the peace process still a long way from peace itself jonah al-jazeera palermo sicily. well italy
is on a collision course with the european union or the budget for next year the european commission has rejected the budget and set a deadline of tuesday if you want but a song. from the conflict could be playing into the hands of euro skeptic leaders. you know has been running his bakery for two years business is good he says but it's a struggle making a living as a small business owner he pays more than sixty percent tax and sees little financial benefits but he says he loves what he does and will keep doing it his hope is that the government will stick to its word and take on the european union to its knees if we can call me. so. i think government has the opportunity to really not just in europe but. if you were up to me and you refuse to. accept. his opinion is one of
a growing number of those becoming increasingly anti. when the government tried to push forward a budget for next year that outlined a flat tax for companies and wealthier individuals and a basic income for the unemployed the european commission rejected it it said it would plunge italy's heavily indebted economy into a dangerous downward spiral that could impact the rest of the continent the government has remained defiant towards the reasons why is because it's profiting politically from the situation when the european commission rejected its of these fiscal plan it played right into the. far right and populist deputy prime ministers but there's been little thought for the consequences could lie ahead. italy's economy has been struggling with poor productivity for the. last thirty years. worse and its prospects where all the
economies have managed to rebound italy has been able to emerge from that brought a fax swooped upon by anti e.u. politicians who lay the blame on the european union despite their reliance on it is incredibly dependent on europe the best companies thrive because they can export and most of the exports are to the other european union countries so the moment you. bet on the collapse of the european union institutions it's going to be inevitable the trade will collapse and so will the italian economy. if italy fails to cooperate then it would face sanctions and fines from the commission for adding to its economic burden it's a gamble for the government one that it does not want to lose. our jazeera rome. now two opposition leaders in democratic republic of congo have withdrawn from

people who are confirmed dead in this particular fire here in southern california and to the north almost thirty others have been confirmed dead but there are still two hundred people missing in these fires across the state they've put up photos of them hoping that they'll check in but they do expect the death toll to rise as they begin to assess the damage the wind conditions in northern california are expected to die down over the next couple of days but in southern california and farther to the south near san diego they are expected to kick up and be even worse for three four or five days there are still eight thousand firefighters working on the front lines of these fires four hundred square miles still in flames so their work is far from done. i still says it was behind a suicide attack in the afghan capital that killed six protest is they were all members of the ethnic minority group the was and were rallying for greater
protection for their community following a number of attacks a good name has long. o. the target was this group of protesters. but according to media reports afghan forces were able to stop a suicide bomber before he reached the demonstrators not before who detonated his explosives. they really are on monday there were calls for peace and protection in kabul we actually have raised our voice because we need security if you want security and it's disposability of the government. subjected to discrimination for generations. the has are a community wants to ensure its voices are heard after a series of attacks by the taliban since last week was almost word of five to five days that jill would approach to be modest on and so there is going to.
