taken almost four days to make it to south sudan from a refugee camp across the border in the democratic republic of congo but before she can return to the home she left more than a year ago health workers have to check to make sure she doesn't have the ebola virus. i heard there was an abode outbreak and that it kills i also heard that if one person is infected in the family everyone else can get it to you i've seen the pictures of those who died from about and i was afraid that me and my children got infected so i took them and i returned to south sudan. because an outbreak first declared last august is the worst in the republic's history more than five hundred people have died and a further three hundred have been infected most of the cases are in areas controlled by armed groups making it difficult for aid workers to reach and if they do provide treatment. camps near the epicenter of the. demick more south sudanese

are choosing to head home. people arriving from the neighboring democratic republic of congo are screened for ebola at fives like this one in the center of a people arriving from uganda which is also considered high risk country are also screened but others are getting through without screening because of challenges at the border. agency say between fifty and one hundred people are arriving in south sudan every day but not all crossing points have screening sites and not all screening sites are easily accessible which is raising fears about the potential spread of the disease at a screening site there located between the border areas between the r.c. in south sudan and uganda and south sudan they are extremely hard to reach due to complex security situation and extremely poor infrastructure so these two are the major challenge that we face in terms of stepping up. gaining access and maintaining access for continued. prevention and preparedness activities
10:35 pm
the authorities in a say they're trying to raise awareness to make it easier for people to get screened we have been advocating so much for people but. to make sure don't be used where the screaming points should not be come to those points i would walk over still in the fields most of them used to moves on but to the challenge but we keep getting that we really need to use the office would. be to set up and screaming all those porous borders ilia has been screened and assured she's well but it claims more victims in the democratic republic of congo and fighting continues to cut off access to border points in south sudan there are concerns if the disease spreads aid workers here in a will have to step up from a position of preventing it to one of containing it people morgan al-jazeera arab or state. another.

now the u.s. was the last major country to perform invasive testing on chimpanzees infecting them with hiv tuberculosis and other diseases it stopped in twenty fifteen because of animal cruelty concerns well now instead of living out their days in a lab the chimps have gone into a time and in a new home i was there as john hendren as the story from pete phil.
10:38 pm
for mankind's closest relative. this is the reward for a life of service. they've been infected with hiv tuberculosis and other diseases and tested it medical labs across the united states now julius in two hundred sixty eight other chimpanzees are living a life of leisure at louisiana's chimp pavan the world's largest chimp retirement home. they get treatments for the usual ailments for the elderly. we see diabetes we see kidney failure we see liver insufficiency arthritis periodontal disease. and they get specialized medical care and the occasional healthy treat. they are living out the chip life they get to make choices they can decide if they want to be indoors or if they want to be outdoors. that happened. three years after the u.s. government ended invasive testing on chimpanzees there are now more chimps here
10:39 pm
than in government funded laboratories. inching pavan is rapidly making room for the remaining one hundred eighty test chimps hey are you are ready for the release ready but everything about. some labs had insisted the chimps should be retired where they are in the labs that experimented on them but in october the u.s. national institutes of health decided that all chimps who are healthy enough to travel be brought here. this is a far cry from the lives chimpanzees lived in research labs instead of serving humankind with their bodies. they're being catered to themselves. so i'm like julie is we're born in the wild others have never seen a tree you would think if you gave a chimp a tree they would climb it that's not true chimps are territorial sometimes fatally so to newcomers so any faults is part behaviorist part mammal matchmaker when they

dumped a lot of this who tony and other radioactive waste into the pit the bottom of the dome it's permeable soil there was nowhere for her to line it and therefore the sea water is inside the dome when this dome was built there was no factoring in sea level rises caused by climate change now every day when the tide rolls out radioactive isotopes from underneath the die roll out with it if it really were not told in just the marshall islands we're talking the whole suite. the battle to retake lost territory stalls and civilians continue to live.
10:49 pm
in the south as they are alive and also coming up. protests continue in algeria despite the president's promise of. talking peace corp the leaders of ethiopia and eritrea in south sudan will have a live update. tornado hama's the american state of alabama killing at least twenty two and leaving a trail of destruction. the reports quoting officials of the u.s. backed syrian democratic forces which is battling i still say at least one hundred fifty people including fighters have surrendered and babus earlier yesterday have said it was slowing down the offensive against isis last held area to protect civilians with a more this joins us live now from the lebanese capital so what more details are
10:50 pm
you hearing about the surrender of myself as around. well what we understand is that there is a pause in the fighting or what amounts to an undeclared ceasefire you mentioned the kurdish led syrian democratic forces announcing earlier today that their offensive would be slowing down because i saw it was using civilians as human shields what happened since that statement was announced is that they open the corridor to allow anyone who wants to leave to leave this enclave who is this tiny enclave the last pockets of territory under the control of i so kurdish affiliated media or as the affiliated media as well as syrian opposition activists they are reporting dozens of fighters surrendering some put the numbers at one hundred fifty others but the number of two hundred they're also reporting hundreds of other civilians leaving who's now on friday the as the f.
10:51 pm
announced a final assault to capture this town there was intense fighting over the past few days it's still not clear how many fighters were left inside but whose they were given two choices really to fight to death or to surrender because they were under siege they were outgunned they were outnumbered and seems the choice that they made today is to surrender but like i mentioned we still do not know if there are other fighters still inside but this is definitely a blow to i so a symbolic blow more than anything else because back in two thousand and seventeen was when i saw it started really to lose territory itself declared caliph it was crumbling at last major cities in iraq and syria so this town really would be a symbolic blow but losing it losing the last territory it controls in syria and iraq really puts an end to their self declared caliph it. i mean as you say earlier
10:52 pm
the s.t.'s said they were slowing down their offensive worry about. casualties so what's happening now to people caught up in the fighting. well we do not know whether there are more civilians trapped inside but last week thousands and thousands of civilians emerged weak tired hungry it was a battleground and they had twin things supplies little health care and many of the people who left where women and children and they were members or family members of of i so fighters they were taken to a camp further north in the governor at the. old displacement camp and already overcrowded camps so fifty five thousand people in this campaign agencies have been struggling to feed them more than eighty people died and two thirds of them infants i may say and they died either trying to reach the camp or once they arrived to the camp they died from malnutrition or hypo so agency is struggling and what is
10:53 pm
important to to mention is that these are fighters families these are people who are not really accepted in society what is what is their fate what is going to be their fate especially since a lot of them are foreigners and many countries the countries that they have come from many european countries do not want to take them back so humanitarian crisis as a result of this ongoing offensive to and isolate presence in syria. in the lebanese capital beirut zana thank you syria was high on the agenda of talks between the russian qatari foreign minister sergei lavrov was in doha before travelling on to saudi arabia kuwait the u.a.e. the foreign minister the political solutions to complex across the region. in concern to the international agenda we paid attention of course to the situation in the near east africa first of all in syria libya and somalia we assume
