1:01 am
a stone it be used in the catholic church but fails to meet any survivors. i still want to control most of eastern syria and a third of iraq but it's now on the brink of defeat its territory reduced to a sliver of land that u.s. backed syrian democratic forces have started evacuating civilians from syria's eastern village of it's a sign that there could be an end to a standoff that's lasted more than a week several trucks have left the besieged enclave carrying men women and children it's believed eisel fighters use civilians as human shields will some five hundred fighters remain holed up in the area evacuated civilians are being taken to the camp in northern syria which has been the village of the damned camp a segregated one bought for ordinary citizens the other for suspected eisel families meanwhile further south on syria's border with jordan is the rock band
1:02 am
camp it lies inside the so-called de confliction zone set up by u.s. forces and as controlled by free syrian army rebels there are around forty thousand people mostly women and children living in the rock band camp they were given a twenty four hour window to leave by the syrian government and russia but many decided to stay because of safety concerns imran khan brings us the latest now from gaza in the turkey syria border. at least ten trucks have left the alba who's village pairing women and children now the civilians have been a real concern for both the united nations and the syrian democratic forces in effect both the united nations on the center and democratic forces say i see a using those civilians as human shields now it's in ices interest of keep the civilians there because it stops the s.d.f. from coming inside the village now the village most of it has actually been completely destroyed and the civilians and living in what is effectively tented camps in the outskirts of that village now given that they've now been able to
1:03 am
leave yes the ethyl very confident they'll be able to go in and deal with isis fighters now that the i suffices had a very long time to prepare for this fight they knew it was going to come at some point and they biased to dig tunnels and what we're hearing is a lot of those are suffices in those tunnels and still be a very tough fight for the syrian democratic forces now as i say whilst all this goes on we still have the situation in iraq up on camp on camp is controlled by the f.s.a. there is a no man's land effectively about fifty five kilometers before you get to these russian and syrian opened corydoras now these corridors so-called humanitarian corridors allegedly going to allow syrians in the camps mostly women and children to be able to go north however there's a real suspicion let's hear what a few people have sight to see the crossings opened by the regime and the russian military police are claimed to be safe but the people here are not feeling any
1:04 am
safety or stability people here feel as if they are drowning and looking for anything at all to rescue themselves the road to the camp has been cut by richard i am for me personally if i leave it would be army to go from one death trap to another if i found a safe place from a my kids in my family i would guard finish it if that's not their fault opening the crossing is a good step but we wanted to be our the same by the un because i'm. lies we've been told before nobody believes these crossings are safe so despite the fact that there is a very desperate situation in the camp people are running low on food on oil of accommodation or water and they are living effectively on top of each other this is a very real situation of the russian and syrian motives. although the window came to an end not in this morning open for twenty four hours it's unclear whether the russians and the syrians will keep the corridors open for any longer. ella developments bangladesh's foreign minister says the british teenager who fled
1:05 am
london to join and who is in the other how can we mentioned earlier will not be allowed into his country on tuesday the u.k. move to strip shamima begum of her or her citizenship believing she was a jewel national with bangladeshi heritage and you are has more means finding clothes papers that relate to a decision taken by this is how nineteen year old should be blood that she was being stripped of her british citizenship from a copy of a letter from the british home office. begum is in a refugee camp in syria where she was discovered earlier this month and. in twenty fifteen she and two friends left the u.k. to join i saw in syria she married a dutch eisel fighter soon after arriving and to be living in isis last stronghold before arriving at the camp can i say to you i think it's british prime minister
1:06 am
said the decision to revoke citizenship would be carefully considered the overall point one of the friend makes is absolutely right which is how important it is for this government and this country to make very clear that we will take action against those who are involved in terrorism the british government can withdraw a person citizenship if they are deemed a security risk providing it doesn't leave them stateless it's believed begum has bangladeshi heritage and is eligible for citizenship but when asked about the case the country's foreign ministry said teenage begum is not a bangladeshi citizen there is no question of begum being allowed to enter bangladesh bacon's infant son is a british national by birth the british government says his rights unaffected. this is bethnal green which should mean the begum grew up an area with a large bangladeshi community in london's east end the case is divided opinion here
1:07 am
. there's just so many factors in this and i'm actually quite a bit torn to the one hundred it was the truth but this is a ship i want them to bring her in the baby ava but the other hand i'm like she did go away and she did join you know terrorists agree. only fifteen when she left for syria there were some including the former head of britain's foreign intelligence service m i six people leave the british society should be strong enough to give her a second chance others want her to come to the u.k. to stand trial to possibly face a prison sentence and enter into a deal rather colonization program. but she doesn't regret traveling to syria she's also described the twenty seventeen bunches serina bomb attack is justified retaliation the comments haven't won her much sympathy but one former senior police officer believes begum should be seen as a victim you know we took intimate sexual exploitation we were talking about individuals that were on the on the internet being radicalized parents had no idea whatsoever what was happening. but estimated nine hundred british nationals have

government who are deeply concerned about this no deal becoming a real a real possibility and it will give them the coverage next week to do but frankly some of them should on a long time. in their joint resignation letter the three former conservatives say that their final straw was the government's disastrous handling of it it was unconscionable they wrote that a conservative government was recklessly marching the country to the cliff edge of no deal they lamented the failure of politics in general the resignations or the elephant in the room at the weekly session of prime minister's questions despite the eleven new independent tempi sitting very noticeably in new seats in the chamber by the theresa may nor jeremy corbyn acknowledge that he invited her to. this place as at war with itself the tories and the labor party out of political scotland deserves better of we. are hearing from you very often

1:29 am
the vatican says it's determined to put a stop to and that the four day meeting is vital in impressing on senior clarity who've come from around the world that it's their shared responsibility to do so but although cardinals and bishops will hear video testimony from victims of sexual abuse no survivors is being given the chance to speak with her in person now so they were putting great importance on their expected separate meeting at the party but it didn't go as planned first of all pope francis wasn't there but made it very clear some of us that's not ok we're going to see victims see it as a sign of disrespect that the leader of the catholic church sent bishops instead this vatican summits on sexual abuse may be unprecedented in its size and its scope but survivors have still told us that they are skeptical that it's going to lead to any meaningful change and their experiences on wednesday of only reinforce that feeling for them the summit has got off to
