12:00 am
pence and from rubio and from why the self there's definitely a shift towards at least considering some kind of military option. i think that's a very dangerous step particularly given the volatility of the region historically and still to this day i mean as your frankly very refreshing really in-depth report said there are all kinds of different violent acts operating in venezuela particularly along the more populous border with colombia the quality of those for example then you have some guerrillas still active either former fox or the land along the border from colombia and also you could have splits in the military and things like that and the problem would be if something escalates starts to get out of hand then it could be quite hard to put the genie back in the bottle really but we know we know that the countries of that lima group they do support why do but would they support the u.s.
12:01 am
as you say in its call or at least some calling for military action and what would that even look like. well president do care of colombia was pressed on this to some extent the other day and he refused to say clearly but he didn't rule it out either which is quite worrying and i think colombia is perhaps the most likely because of its long history of opposition to the chavez government and later than were due to a government duke a personally is seen as the successor to president who had really awful relations with chavez and that the two almost led the two countries into war in two thousand and ten so i think colombia is perhaps the most likely and obviously in terms of where it is geographically it's most likely also on the other side brazil from from what i've heard is less likely and also again geographically
12:02 am
it makes much less sense that side is very remote you have to cross plains that are you know very sparsely populated. but then in the widest sense i think it's very easy and it has been very common to use venezuela to score political points but basically saying you know i'm going to prevent my country from becoming the next venezuela and so there's been a lot of and there's been people such as yet and chile who's turned up at the border and also why and when i look up there's a lot of political how order to be gained great and when you look at what's happening with the border and the situation with the u.s. aid how much pressure is this putting on the majority government if any at all. certainly putting pressure on the government i mean i think the sanctions from the u.s. particularly the ones on oil but also the existing preexisting ones on the financial transactions together that's a real concern for the majority of government. in terms of this kind of pressure i
12:03 am
think unless there's some kind of shift in the military support then it could just drag on and i mean if you look at this from the perspective of a normal soldier it's a very difficult decision to make you mean you are relying on the state for your wages and access to better treatment than the average venezuelan you know unless you feel like there's going to be a successful rebellion within the military you know you're chancing quite important thing if you then you know try to defect or try to rise up against the government of the higher levels that they're involved in the economy they may be under sanction themselves from the u.s. so at the moment they don't really have an interest necessarily in abandoning the douro and frankly why go and rubio and so on have done much to reassure them all right we thank you very much for joining us from london as always you can head online for all the latest updates on developments on the crisis in venezuela just

12:06 am
couple of days but that's the real question what is achieved here if anything can be implemented on the ground the afghan people want security they want safety there of course skeptical what capacity the taliban will return the talks are about getting them into a political unity government it is difficult it is complicated but certainly there seems to be a glimmer of hope that they have perhaps coming the closest that they ever have to achieving some form of a deal so if that happened civilians continue to bear the brunt of the war just the day before the u.s. and their talks here in qatar the u.n. released a report saying that last year was the most deadly for civilians you can read more about the report by heading to our web site al-jazeera dot com. the iraqi president about one salles says he'll seek to prosecute thirteen french eisel fighters detained in the country saleh made the pledge after holding talks with french president emmanuel mccall in paris france has recently been debating whether to

12:18 am
this is what's left of the remote town of you in southwestern democratic republic of congo much of it was destroyed last december and violence between the big ten day and been nunu tribes this village has been home to both tribes but ethnic tensions have been rising over the months leading up to the syntax. not many knew about it until the un recently discovered a number of mass graves like this one in the town this woman says she was attacked while attending a church service. with. we were in the church when the attackers from the big ten day tribe came in and they started questioning us about our identity and organs and whether or not we were from the new new try i thought i was just visiting but they said they were no longer picking any tribes now you're killing everybody from now on they started shooting inside the church killing my husband my four kids they cut me with a machete and left me to die i woke up in hospital the congolese authorities initially
12:19 am
said this was a spontaneous act as a result of a long simmering dispute between the two tribes that suddenly flared up over the burial of a big new tribal chief but sources tell al-jazeera the violence was a carefully planned massacre with elements of the army involved and the prosecutor's office in the capital kinshasa has announced twelve people have been arrested and are waiting to go on trial in a military court military officials say the investigation will be conducted by the army because the attack was carried out with military precision using weapons of war but for the survivors there is little hope in what's left of their homes. everything is destroyed in this village and no one is coming back here again we have lost many of our friends and neighbors people need to come back so we can live like before it's too sad. vocal about god does i do. we don't understand the
12:20 am
reasons for all this violence from our button day brothers against us the government needs to take responsibility to restore peace and stability as we don't have anything left we can't even vote now because everything has been destroyed by fire in our house four hundred sixty five houses and buildings were burnt down or pillaged including primary schools a health care center and the office of the independent electoral commission. nearly sixteen thousand people have fled across the congo river into the neighboring republic of congo since the massacre. while the survivors wait in line to receive tents from doctors without borders the task of slowly rebuilding begins in this remote corner of the democratic republic of congo dorset al-jazeera. let's speak to for richer andrea alone is the emergency team coordinator in the democratic republic of congo for doctors without borders is joining us on skype
12:21 am
from kinshasa thanks for speaking to al jazeera so we know that m.s.f. doctors without borders responded within a week of that massacre as it's being described describe to us your operation right now in the area and what you're doing there. all this exact we we were there just a couple of days after the fight began and we started by taking care of the wounded people and we're right there we found over sixty people in the hospital so we took care of the of the wounded people in the morsy that warrants were referred. to in places where they could have where they could be taken care of and then since then so it's two months now basically we've been driving more bad clinics inland and all over the river because part of the displaced book mission he's on a small islands on the river so when so far we had about nine thousand coast patients
12:22 am
they were down. and we also and if norm food items distribution because one of the main needs is the need for a shelter because both mission had to run away and don't really have showed or housing anymore and so we distribute around two thousand eight hundred kids for non-food items so you're saying that shelter is one of the things that were that's most needed what other resources are being put in place in order to ensure a longer term care for those people left behind. indeed shared two is one of the main needs and construction together we shared there is because entire neighborhoods have been destroyed burned out of. food is not a big meaning that it sounds to me that now i know we see money intrusion at brize we had over a hundred a one hundred fifteen but not rich children in them about critics and we see these
12:23 am
increasing over the weeks because of the difficulty of the access to food provision we see protection as a main. need as well for the population as well as it makes you worse in the long response or long term support of the health system because what we see is that even though the most acute acute phase of. the prize maybe over the needs are going to be there for a long time as well as mental health is a big need that is needed in the long run because people suffer big trauma because of the fighting what are your teams on the ground telling you about the possibility of the threat of renewed violence or it's hard to tell it's very difficult to tell we don't for sure is that the people the population is afraid and it's difficult to go back or when there is no hole. and it's difficult to live
12:24 am
a normal life were there is no food or when big trauma is go in there in the mind of the people but then of the other than that it's hard to tell whether it will be possible to go back homes who are not right for brits and raillery thank you very much for speaking to us from kentucky. thank you now let's take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world and in sudan police there in the capital have fired tear gas at anti-government protesters there been daily demonstrations since president obama and bashir announced the nationwide state of emergency on friday he said he was dissolving his government but just hours later appointed six new minister as an eighteen state governors from the military because she is trying to quell weeks of fun rest that began over writing prices forces loyal to libya warlords twenty five have to it are reported to have killed nineteen people in the town of what is ok that's where half that of forces have taken over several oil fields witnesses say more than thirty houses were set

12:31 am
seems to indicate the reality is taking center stage and that the cuban government knows it must fight the economic battle and knows he can do that with an inefficient state in the private sector drowned by regulations. there are opponents to the draft resolution some say it doesn't go far enough others say it is too socially liberal but they have the opportunity to vote no which in cuba is change indeed. just cuba. the united nations highest court says britain should seize control of the changes islands assumed this possible ruling says britain's eviction of two thousand people from the indian ocean archipelago in the one nine hundred sixty s. and seventy's was on lawful the non-binding advisory opinion is a victory for displaced people from the islands who've been fighting to return home so to the glitz and the glamour of hollywood now in some major breakthroughs for diversity sunday's academy awards set

12:41 am
hello again the is here with all the sports news and a story on like yulia yet nike and the oscars are as a sporting highlight last at last night's oscar ceremony as nike launched their new politically charged ad following on from their calling caprona commercial last year the latest campaign focused on empowering women in sport fronted by serina williams it's already been viewed more than ten million times on instagram alone here's a little preview for you. a woman boxer is crazy. i want i don't. coach an elite you crazy. woman getting into. changing her story leading a double or to me. winning twenty three grand slams having a baby and then coming back for more. crazy things. so if they want to raise it. fine. show them what crazy can do.
12:42 am
we've talked of to feel about this ad here's a lumping badman silver medalist gail m's. when i was growing up and i went to school and i said i want to be a limp here i was. i was told at school it is just a hope. it's only guys that do sports as a job and i remember thinking well i'm really good and i want to get back and you look in the media when i was young and there was only footballers that was the only world models that rivendell male footballers and i wanted to see strong women and for the first time i got to see that at an olympic games and that's what inspired me i knew there were women out there that are less strong that were staffs that troops run lately fartlek could jump really high and were incredible and that's
12:43 am
what i want to be so to me i want this ad that shoe really hits here in the heart of my head of all the young i was fifty years old when i was inspired by i didn't play games i want this to hit every single female whether their lawyers know whether that's sixty billion so i go you know you are really out on. kill him there was an inspired by the ad and so as a limpid lenny belcher you know many times people have told me i'm crazy for dreaming big and wanting to go in picks and and try and become world champion in any no i use that and embraced it the quality is getting better and i don't think the other is too political i think it's i think it's a good hard hitting hard hitting out of it and i think it needs to be done. it's not all about women's sports though this is a business move by nike after what's been a tough few days for them you may remember this last weekend a hopeful xi'an williamson entering his name because of his nike shoe was falling
12:44 am
