last year and they often targeted the shia minority over here and western kabul resulting in a lot of people being brought up here to be symmetry which is quickly filling up the un report found the biggest killer of civilians was the taliban responsible for thirty seven percent of deaths the taliban rejects the un's finding somebody. meeting of tribal elders and former taliban commanders in kabul spoke out against it this week they laid the blame on afghan and international forces. who reads and killing innocent people people who reads. strikes. last year was the first on record that more than five hundred civilians were killed because of airstrikes mostly by international forces who say they do investigation review credible allegations of errors to learn and improve but in the blame game of the afghan war the un hopes they can be some accountability i think it's important
that the stark reality of the costs of the conflict is put before the public and therefore does enter the calculations of those who are talking in that. endeavor to bring this conflict to a close it's a conflict now and it's eighteenth year with everyone that passes the graves closer to the ridge line behind the statistics beneath the snow are my children and parents sunni and shia not fighters but killed by them just the same. so i have for you on the news our. demand is an ideology it's an idea you can't. wait you know kashmiri leaders hit out at the indian government's crackdown against separatist groups in the disputed region. heading home but is it too soon lebanon's government has warned against rushing the repatriation of syrian refugees.
three hundred thirty million dollar man makes his. will be here with the details. the u.s. and south korea have announced they will scale back joint military exercises the large scale drills on the korean peninsula have been a point of contention with north korea's leader kim jong un washington and seoul say it's possible to improve ties with pyongyang but the two will still carry out smaller joint exercises the decision follows president trump second summit was annoyed which ended without an agreement. has more from seoul. effectively joint military exercises in south korea have been scaled back since president donald trump announced after the single poor summit last june that he was no fan of these war games as he called them that they were a waste of money but this confirmation that key resolve and foal eagle these spring
exercises involving tens of thousands of troops of war planes ships and tanks will effectively come to an end is seen as a big concession they'll be replaced by much smaller less high profile exercises these exercises have always enraged the north koreans who see them as a possible credit to war seems the joint militaries of south korea and the u.s. of now agreed at least in part with that saying that they do indeed lead to a rise in tension that these exercises are being ended as a way of supporting the diplomatic efforts this will be welcome by president moon j.n. of south korea who's once again standing in as a possible mediator between north korea and the u.s. to get things back on track it will also possibly help his personal initiative to
try to help into korean relations go move forward to the next step he has stated in the last couple of days that despite the disappointment of the hanoi summit he's still determined to try to resume economic and tourism projects with north korea we still wants to try to go ahead with that although it's difficult to see just how without getting sanctions relief from the united states robin kelly is a professor of political science and diplomacy at the sun national university he says north korea will be expected to refrain from any nuclear testing in response to these military exercises. i think it's probably a quid pro quo for the continuing moratorium on the cell tests and nuclear tests the north koreans could continue to test missiles they could detonate weapons even larger than the one they did fifteen months ago sixteen months ago and i think you know trump is basically informally given them this in order to maintain that halt i suppose is the reason we fair trade i would imagine the japanese are
a little bit nervous about this you know the japanese like the idea of the americans aboard in korea and in japan the american presence in japan or in korea is something of a forward buffer you know defense buffer if you will for japan as well i think the japanese are pretty worried that donald trump isn't getting enough of the north koreans have the same in japan there is some relief that hanoi sort of collapsed without any major concessions on the american part but i mean as long as the tests are going in clearing missiles flying around your japan you know it's possible the see this is a balance positive and if the north koreans were to go back to that i think we would get exercise immediately in fact i think there probably be a very harsh snap back on this more than just exercises well now we take you to the disputed region of kashmir where there's been an exchange of fire between security forces and rebel fighters indian soldiers have launched an operation in northern baba good to try to push out the groups meanwhile funerals have been held for some of the victims of recent fighting at least seven people were killed on saturday
across borders shelling between india and pakistan tensions remain high after a suicide attack in the kashmir region last month which killed fourteen indian paramilitary troops well regional kashmir and it is a criticizing the indian government's crackdown on separatist groups one of them is jamaah islamiyah his members are accused of supporting an armed resistance against india but its leaders say the crackdown will affect the group's charity work cell raman explains from new delhi. it's an early start for these students in srinagar they come to this religious school from some of the poorest families in the region this hot drink and snack is perhaps the only opportunity to eat on the cold winter morning many live in isolated villages and farms so it's a chance to see friends and catch up before classes begin however they may not be able to study here for much longer. the government has banned jamaat e islami that runs this religious school and many more like it in the region it says the group supports armed resistance against india and is
a threat to the country's stability. student says it's a disappointing setback to his education as a comic i want to do something in my life that benefits everyone i wasn't very religious and wanted to know how to pray correctly i was embarrassed that i couldn't answer questions about my feet this has changed more importantly the school has taught me social skills are to be polite speak to strangers and my elders with respect. late last month the central government banned jamaat e islami arrested scores of its leaders and sealed off their homes in indian administered kashmir there's been widespread anger in the community many feel muslims are being deliberately targeted and accused of being sympathetic to so-called terror organizations it's an accusation people here deny and say the government in new delhi is vilifying them for their faith and beliefs. regional politicians and are challenging new delhi you can jail an idea not is an ideology
it's an idea you can just so you know in a democracy it's a battle of ideas if you try to imprison everyone you can imprison the idea is going to further alienate the people of kashmir this former head of india's external intelligence agency believed about the islamiyah me it has links with armed groups in pakistan a factor that. has been bad news for a long. whether there was a need to ban there i mean there's. a government to decide. but. the bad had needed to be picked up that should have been number one time ago this to mark the hasn't been arrested and speaking exclusively to al jazeera tells of his concerns because of the if. bernard whole system will get stated and it will be a disaster for the needy and lot of people especially the
orphans and widows jamaat e islami hindus the original group from which to mark the islam broke away from the former passengers across india like this and they're not bound with tensions running high the concern for the indian government is how to regulate groups that offer an islamic education in indian administered kashmir without alienating an already disillusioned community so whole romany culture sirrah new delhi. a documentary airing on our sister channel al-jazeera arabic shed some new light on the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi is last seen entering the saudi consulate in istanbul in october so if more let's meet is and i'm kristie lu is live for us now in ankara and what new information has come to light. well these pictures belong to an overland which is called a tender over and that was probably built a year or maxim a year and
a healthy go in the garden of saudi consul general residence in istanbul we first heard about the stander in a two thousand eight hundred element out by istanbul police department recently a few weeks ago it mentioned that the stomach police actually mentioned in that that they strongly suspect jamal body parts which were carried to the residence by the saudi hit team from from the consulate building after being dismembered that it might have been burned inside that over and according to the technical details of the or when it can fire up to a thousand degrees celsius which means it can leave no trace of a d.n.a. and the police report in the element x. says that. toby kay who is a forensic expert of the saudi hit team has a dissertation on hard to prove why d.n.a. samples from bones so from their day they believe that his. body parts
might have been burned inside that over and also when they went to some the police first made a search inside the residence they measured that there were two water wells inside inside the garden and at first they suspected that jamal has shipped his body parts might have been inside that well and a couple of days later we in the turkish media reported that the saudi men who stayed inside the residence had a barbecue for many hours and they ordered killed many kilo's dozens many kilos of meat and cooked and cooked so that's why they came up to the strong suspicion that he might have been. body parts might have been burnt inside this town dury over and and as for. as we know from the stumble police department and from the police and also from the voice recordings open stayed inside the saudi
consulate general jamal was killed brutally by a saudi his men of fifteen people and his body was dismembered brutally thank you with the latest. thank you send em now there's been a large explosion in the eastern syrian town of iso fighters trying to cling on to the last bit of territory they hold in the country the u.s. backed kurdish forces have launched a final assault on the armed group to drive them from all civilians that have been cleared from the town and taken to an s.d.s. camp near the border with iraq and now the new minister in charge of refugees in lebanon wants the millions of syrians living there to return home but human rights groups warn that sending those syrians back could have severe consequences with many facing arbitrary detention and torture by the assad regime and harder reports from beirut a new group of syrians is returning home thousands have made this journey in recent months but the numbers are still small hosts over
a million refugees from the war in syria authorities say it is time for them to go home now that much of the country is back under the syrian government's control but there are those who accuse bashar assad's government of establishing oppressive rule they cite the southern province of daraa as an example there is a. in security for the population. for former rebels as well as for. people who never engaged in military action but who would have a record. people supporting the opposition of being against the government. the opposition had agreed to a negotiated surrender for an amnesty but some say the so-called reconciliation agreements are not being respected instead there have been arbitrary arrests.
international organizations including the u.n. say the lack of security guarantees is why many refugees are afraid to go back. into the conflict and we haven't seen any reform being done by the syrian government towards the security situation especially syrian security services that are responsible for crimes against humanity and for arbitrary detention torture and death and custody lebanon's politicians are divided on whether it is safe for syrian refugees to return home but the refugee affairs portfolio is now run by a politician allied to the syrian government the newly appointed minister salih first act in office was to visit damascus it further politicized the issue there are some politicians who criticize the visit reach the government policy of intervening in the hope that they believe return as well as normalize direct contacts with damascus should not happen until an internationally backed political
solution is reached in syria. many complain about the refugee populations impact on the country's economy and infrastructure those who hold power say they will push ahead with what they call voluntary and. that could mean more difficult conditions to discourage them. from london. where. for the next generation right populist politicians. maintain the connection to their land. and. the details.
hell of a sunday night and probably a good part of monday windell feel exceedingly strong in the british isles particularly england and wales of winds over one hundred kilometers per hour as a storm a named storm for a year develops and runs through now it is at the moment still developing as a hump of cloud on the satellite picture that is eat it'll become a tight circulation and it will bring wet and windy weather overnight spreading quickly across to scandinavia the heart of it but it won't leave behind car this and that that's when he's just going to the low countries and france by this time brought some warms into some was the head of it to austria seventeen in vienna temperature wise than to about norbit above maybe but i think the strength of the
window make you feel not particularly good and the picture on tuesday not a strong winds rather less cloud has some at least so bit of rain there and it's i think you'd use the word unsettled for all of northern europe and that induced warmth has gone from vienna way down to eleven degrees so all the action is in northern europe which gives us quiet ish weather throughout the mediterranean that strong wind across tunisia has gone now there are still a few showers potentially there in the eastern med maybe touching libya but with that lack of wind and increasing strength and sunshine we're above twenty g's. monch on al-jazeera. maggi house on debates discusses and dissects the big issues of our times and head to heads five years after the revolution focuses in ukraine will have a chance to offer a verdict on what's come since. and call for new films residents of occupied east

welcome back a look at the top stories this hour now algeria's president abdul aziz has officially entered the race for a fifth consecutive term in office ignoring the demands of thousands of protesters his official bid for reelection has now been submitted by his campaign manager. the u.s. and south korea of agree to and large joint military exercises in an effort to support future talks with north korea on denuclearization and there's been a large explosion in the eastern syrian town about who's where the u.s. backed cody and the air forces have launched a final assault on i still. want to bring you more in our top story now the ongoing protests against president bush of his decision to stand for a fifth term in office. is a research fellow at the french school for advanced studies in the social sciences
she is currently in algiers and joins us now thanks for taking the time to speak to us so as you're aware there has now been an announcement that the president will call for a fresh election and will stand down if he is reelected what is your sense of the reaction there is that likely to satisfy the demonstrators. well that's even more comfy meaning the disconnection between the regime on what side one played and the yell jian people on the other side on the religion sides and the idea that they will organize to the base of the elections fake transitions as those who are transitioned they will control from the top is a way to get in time and to think that. that protesters we will be tyrants and get home get back home on the protester sides there's no interest in elections whatsoever curiously people are out talking about general
strike about civil there's a vision so they're not talking about elections or another candidate americal candidate even if it's not the trickle who wins the election so there's a sort of disconnection between derision and the people who are actually currently what specifically do the people want to say. they want to organize their own political life you know they have been marginalized from the opie show boys equalised since sixty two is indeed the engine the d.n. dependency of the country and now they are singing it from now we can see we want to be in control want to get that control back over our political life and that's why they are not targeting only would feel bad but asking for the system has the will to to lead and that's why also they have been so happy to be able to take the streets. in the unity in philly there is he and also in self control they have been able to do so without any balance and you know it's an illusion anyway to think
that. people on the street they will maintain the pressure but a way out won't be found soley to the maintaining of the protest one day on another the army will have to negotiate with with the people who want to accept to have mark transparent and fuchsias all to give back the d.n.c. she said y'all june but are they going to choose their impression i don't know you know that next friday we're going to have no other march and it will be march eighth and traditionally does the time when a lot of woman take the streets in the in nigeria as they were in the world so are there going to oppress women and little girls old women i doubt can i ask you you said that the army which is obviously a very powerful institution in the country will have to negotiate one way or another with the people but if this appears to be a very organic decent charlize kind of movement so how would that work.
well actually that's one of the way out maybe it will depend somehow localise the poor who become because of course i mean they'll give process where totally enteron generational classroom it will be sometime well the university of adria has it is really but now we may see with this call course he will do the billions or more through a more local involvement to take control over local to sions again so it remains to see how the the poor while there has been we on sort of that and elections one on third that challenge apple thank you very much i'm a little courage joining us there from algae is on our vote counting is underway in parliamentary elections in a stony a in a poll that is seen as a test for the far right center left prime minister jerry rattus is the front
runner but he's likely to face difficulties forming a parliamentary majority he's in a tight race with the liberal reform party and the nationalist estonian conservative people's party has been making gains as a migration crisis in two thousand and fifteen initial results are expected around midnight. u.s. president donald trump is former adviser steve bannon is helping set up an academy for all right leaders in italy bannon has praised italy's populist government for its nationalist agenda and is hoping more countries will follow its example but it's on a gaggle reports from college some residents are not happy with the plan. for more than eight hundred years that resulted charterhouse monastery in college park dar has been a place of quiet contemplation these days the last of the remaining monks is retired and it is no longer soley dedicated to a theory of pursuits the new resident has moved in with a more worldly plans in mind benjamin han well the founder of the d.d.
tartus humana institute or d.h. i want to transform it into a right wing populist recruiting ground the first project is the cardinal martino academy for human dignity which will promote catholic social teaching with a special emphasis pro-life pro-family issues the second project is the academy for the judeo christian west which will promote the christian foundations of western civilization one of the main backers is all right ideologues steve bannon who played a leading role in president trump's electoral victory and was the author of his nationalist american first dog there is a tension here to spread that vision across europe and beyond because then return home use what they learned here for the fight for the judeo christian west once they get back into their home environment the blueprint for this was
a talk given by a baton to the d.h.i. at the vatican in twenty fourteen where he preached his conflict ridden worldview but we're in an outright war against shia hardass islam islamic fascism within this forum on astri is where the organizes and steve battle hope to create a new generation of populist nationalist politicians and thinkers the next donald trump or viktor orban if you will but outside of these walls there is little appetite for this project. in the town itself there is a sense of discomfort about the plans to salty was until last year looked after by the state and there are concerns over how the d.h.i. which keeps its funding secret will maintain the modest street growing up inside it we cannot even begin to consider allowing steve benen to come to our town essential there just so he can do whatever he likes by launching this academy to attack the european union its result it becomes
a battleground for europe we will defend it that. it resulted project may sound a warning for the very future of the european union and increasingly fragile continent that threat is ever present this will be a front line with the forces of populism poised to the new recruits and create an elite in their own image sunny guy able al-jazeera. but as well in opposition it is calling for more mass protests this week and says he plans to return home despite threats of being arrested international aid is still languishing on the colombia venezuela border after president nicolas maduro caught off relations with but despite the barricades on venezuelans a still finding ways to deliver the much needed aid there is no reports now from the colombian ordered town of cooking. for thousands of venezuelans who live near the colombian border crossing the river is becoming
a daily routine the water is shallow but it still requires a bit of skill to make it across. most of the people we encountered here are venezuelan citizens carrying heavy bags of used goods they hope to sell in colombia . this is scrap metal people take this and sell it and use the money to buy food and then take the food back to the other side. of it miss says he makes several of these trips every day and is lucky to make twelve thousand pesos for the effort that's the equivalent of about four u.s. dollars on the bus and i and the people cross over to sell scrap metal because there are no jobs no security this keeps them going there's a heavy military presence along the colombian side of the border but officers tell us they're only here to keep the peace not prevent people from moving freely between the two countries that are for the but it's challenging crossing the border through the river it's challenging this bridge serves as the official border
crossing and is usually bustling with pedestrian traffic but a week ago venezuelan officials set up barricades to prevent international aid from entering the country through colombia since then people have had to find other ways to get across the border. as many as twenty thousand people are estimated to be crossing to and from minnesota every single day this river is what separates in a swell from colombia some people tell us they've been traveling for four hours or more in search of food others say what they're seeking is medical attention. this woman was rushed across the river on a stretcher after suffering a miscarriage her mother tells us they didn't know where else to go you know her mouth is purple she's vomiting and vomiting there was no went to treat her if i didn't bring her here she would die. the local economies on both sides of this border rely heavily on commerce and it's clear that people are anxious for it to reopen even though there's no clear sign of when that might be but ended up with.
who could. aid workers in brazil saying that in is people fleeing venezuela are among some of the most vulnerable migrants that mama john jim met one group at a shelter in the city of vista who are trying to help. delicately weaving their traditional handicrafts the work being done by these women is one part practical and one part personal practical since it helps them earn a living personally because they feel it guarantees their survival. but i know that they were doing all this so that we won't lose our cultures arts and crafts we need to keep doing this so our children will never lose their culture of hania centeno like the others seated next to her is a member of the what an indigenous community that lives in venezuela's orinoco river delta numbering around twenty thousand eight workers here say the what i were among the first people to be affected by the deepening troubles and that is wailing . for the city manager said she many of them were already living on the streets
begging on the streets of venezuela. hundreds of what i'll now live here at this shelter in the northern brazilian city a bold beast and it's run by brazil's army and in geos and supported by the united nations refugee agency. to pass the time younger members play volleyball while tribal chiefs reminisce about their beloved orinoco. it will heal by ease tells me the river seems almost to flow through their blood and that now the river seems to be flowing ever farther away. but. we're afraid because the children are learning that we are in a shelter what we have here is very different from our customs of fishing and hunting and our traditional arts and crafts and unlike other migrants the what are are trying to get to other parts of brazil they prefer to stay close to venezuela hoping to make it back ensuring at least for now that their lives stay very much in
limbo that's one of the reasons things have been set up differently here. well the beginning of the new show response to produce in response was to set up then as with no other show but since they didn't like it they would have the hammocks outside to sell their. hammocks because it's what they're used to sleeping on not. fernando good you know with you in h.c.r. tells me hundreds of them have been placed in this converted gymnasium to help the white house feel more stable their normal very vulnerable position in the it's clear when we receive them at the border when we check their health conditions it's very clear that they have more room than abilities in they need they have more specific needs. but it's not just the sleeping arrangements that are unique camp administrators also set up
a communal kitchen. one of the more interesting things we found in this shelter is that the what hour are provided with food and they prepare their own meals it's another way for them to try to preserve cultural traditions many are afraid are disappearing. food that is about much more than eating products that are about much more than selling essential threads of a history they'll do anything to keep alive mohammed atta at the pinta lundy a shelter in bolivia brazil conservationists on the kenyan coast say endangered turtle species are at risk of dying out because of poaching after and so i reports from the coastal town of what web volunteers a battling to save the vulnerable reptile a green tuttle carefully cut his eggs she's just laid x. don't we have to be calf or distracting how with bright lights may force her to stop which.
