for a very very long time however the last 4 years of seeing a spike in the number of attacks and the number of casualty figures because of these frequent attacks between the cattle herders and of course the local farming community now the problem as escalated to such a level that that are criminal gangs who have also come in and take an adventist advantage of the situation and this criminal gangs and are only limited to the nigerian side of the border that are foreigners as we were told by officials who have come in to them for a state and also being part and parcel of this problem an official told al jazeera a few weeks ago that there are more than 48 cams 8 major cams and 4034 major smaller camps in some forest it alone so the whole problem actually is partly the problem of climate change is partly responsible for this crisis more and more cattle herders are moving in words or inland as the area in the north or the area
north becomes dry and dry and so they move their cattle and as a result of movement of these cattle the sort of drive their cattle is through farmlands they're full of these we spoke to say that these farm lands have been expanded into grazing areas and cattle routes or for cattle for migration purposes and through that stage set the stage of conflict between the 2 sides and now the conflict has moved from the north depart into the central part of nigeria and into the south west where we've seen in the last 2 years hundreds of people have been killed. vigils been held in mali's capital after a series of attacks between rival ethnic groups the international criminal court is investigating allegations of crimes against humanity and mali's president is on the increasing pressure to deliver on his promise of peace because hack brings us one hour from. they've come to this open air slaughter house to escape death

coast of spain up to the east coast of england well mostly anyway still the potential for some big thunderstorms in switzerland to clear over the alps and of course is not a great represents showers in the still hot south of austria and down towards the tip of greece and certainly we've seen circulation of showers in turkey for the last week or so they're going to continue or they're not widespread. the difference in the weather across the med trains its remaining driving there is a fair amount of cloud taking the sun out of the sky so it's a new $28.00 into mrs tomorrow $21.00 robot and that's despite the almost constant sun shines north shore breeze the hot weather is to run but it's just inland in libya. examining the headline scientists are telling us that we have just 12 years to make on past any changes unflinching journalism i am told to leave toward complete in
a certain absolutely sharing personal stories with a global audience we simply can make the sacrifice is what i want to see explore in abundance of world class programming the world is watching on al-jazeera. this is a dialogue reading about it for not often staying at on international media and on t.v. why should we stop in this conversation with skepticism because there's a lot of it on my everyone has a voice we are being taken advantage of just because we are a small community without any network just each help join the global conversation announces iraq all they want to do is start the debate the same kind of debate that we have here in st.
welcome back a look at the headlines this hour protest organizers say nearly 2000000 people have taken part in the latest demonstration in hong kong despite the suspension of a controversial extradition bill they want lead to carry law to step down. power is slowly being restored across argentina uruguay paraguayan and brazil after a massive blackout that affected tens of millions of people and at least $160.00 people have been killed in a week of ethnic violence in the eastern democratic republic of congo. around 40 villages were destroyed in the fighting in a teary province. well another stories we're following technicians syrian government forces have exchanged fire in province after what is called a deliberate attack on its forces at least 15 civilians were killed there on
saturday as russian and syrian forces advanced on the last rebel held region in the country under chapelle reports. these rescue workers are calling on those inside to make themselves known the reply. help us for god's sake a boy is found under the rubble by the white helmets who later shared this image telling the world he survived more than a dozen others were not so lucky killed in airstrikes frosted live on saturday syrian civil defense units say russian and syrian warplanes have been attacking them while they're trying to rescue civilians. hundreds have been killed in the province over the last 6 weeks in what's been designated a deescalation zone. hours after russia announced its latest ceasefire in it last week turkey announced syrian forces shelled one of its observation posts. injuring

in the gulf. you know we really haven't heard much questioning at all from democrats about the belief that iran is behind these attacks even though the owner of the japanese ship that was hits has raised some contradictions to the u.s. version of events he says the tanker was hit by a projectile as opposed to a mine now remember democrats have been critical of the president for his failure to believe u.s. intelligence on issues around surrounding iran and also the saudi crown prince's involvement in the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi for another example but adam schiff who's the chairman of the house intelligence committee has said that in his view it's clear that iran is behind the attack but he does question the administration's handling of the situation in particular the secretary of state and
the national security adviser certainly the president has said that he doesn't want war but nonetheless his people and i don't know what this is pump aoe or bolton or both seem to be taking actions to undercut that mission to stay out of warfare at a time when the president sent a message apparently through the japanese prime minister of an interest in going back to the table to negotiate bolton was announcing new sanctions on iran now is that an effort to scuttle the president's effort to initiate a dialogue it certainly seems to have that effect. but i think the the whole idea that somehow through this pressure campaign we were going to force around to complete chile and say ok we'll come back to the table give up everything was naive dangerously naive in the 1st place and this is what our allies are reacting to so both the democrats and the republicans by and large is standing behind this intelligence assessment but what are they doing to convince allies.
well secretary of state mike pompei o speaking to u.s. media earlier on sunday said that he's been calling lots of allies in particular asian allies as 80 percent of the oil that comes through the strait of hormuz ends up in that region so china indonesia japan south korea these are countries that they're really leaning on right now to accept the u.s. version of events and get on board adam schiff says the fact that they're struggling shows just how isolated the united states has become democrats have been critical of the president of course for withdrawing from the nuclear deal with iran than 2000 the 2015 nuclear deal they say that and re imposing sanctions on iran have just heightened tensions with the region and really they say some of them say they have brought us to this point thank you very much a latest reaction to that from washington kristen salumi there thank you kristen
well the u.s. has given iraq a 3 month waiver extension to keep buying electricity from iran after that sanctions against countries doing business with to iran will go into effect iraqis rely on iran for vital energy supplies but in the summer months that's not enough as china strafford now reports from the city of basra. to say reality starts the generator he hopes will using the old age. which supports electricity to families in this poor will be a bit of both so. there are hundreds of generators like this one across the city because daily coach of the last hours. we provide electricity to the poor it comes on for a lower than it's awful for the children really suffer in the summer heat we are so tired inside nothing joyful in my life it's all being misery the government has forgotten us. iraq cannot meet its own electricity needs even
a city like basra which because of its huge oil wealth could be one of the richest cities in the world of aust amounts of electricity comes from close by across the border in neighboring iran the us has increased sanctions on iran in recent months and this could seriously affect neighboring iraq which depends on iran for its power supply nothing in math can get out of iraq relies hugely on iran for this vital resource and a decrease in that power supply could cripple the local economy further we so angry demonstrations over the lack of services in bus for last year the situation hasn't improved since then like the house america's just extended a sanction waiver for iraq so it can keep buying iranian electricity and gas for another 3 months the us is trying to help iraq be less dependent on its neighbor for fuel as a means of increasing its pressure on iran energy joint x.
and mobile recently signed a $53000000000.00 deal with the iraqi government to develop 2 southern oil fields it's hoped that project will also help iraq be more self-sufficient in gas needed to few electricity power plants considering the potential boil wealth of basra the poverty and lack of general services is shocking piles of rubbish lined the streets there are open drains buildings long ago fell into disrepair even with the help of iran there isn't enough electricity being distributed here. to a city that people see and say has suffered use of go and blurt. that al-jazeera. well to turkey now the 2 contenders to be istanbul may have taken part in a debate a week before the election run rerun the former prime minister banally older in an opposition c.h.p.
cans it. debated the future of istanbul in a live televised debate it was declared mayor of the city after the march poll but then a rerun was ordered following a complaint from the ruling ak party over irregularities and violations of electoral law so for more on this in i'm kristie lu joins us live now from istanbul and tell us and what has the reaction been to this televised debate how closely have people been watching it. well it was very interesting for the turkish people because this was the this was the 1st time that 2 political figures came together and faced off during a live debate showing in turkey in the last 17 years mainly since the ruling duck party came to power before that that was a tradition political rivals in general before general elections or mayoral elections used to meet up at t.v.
shows and discuss matters but as i sat it was it is the 1st in 17 years and people expected that 222 candidates to contend and will have the chance to ask the necessary questions to each other because the election that took place on march 31st if it were was controversial because the opposition candidate who won the election with 14000 votes claims that. this is a mistreat their votes have been the election has been taken away from their hands on the other hand the ruling party as you said claimed that there are irregularities that's why every run is the way for democracy on the other side opposition says this is not democracy however and during this debate show we how witness that to may 2 may or old candidates have the potential for a respectful and democratic debate however when you look at the 1st reactions from
on the social media and on national t.v. channels right now people are criticizing that besides this positive influence about democracy the candidates didn't put much on the table. to be able to discuss about the future of istanbul if somebody is a city of 16000000 population and it has 10500000 votes electorates i mean and this 14000 votes of difference which was the. the advantage of the opposition candidate extremism or the seems to be a small number however that is this fight this margin the margin is tight it was one of vote counts in a stumble right now in skin to make a difference but however as i said when we look at the social media reactions and the another speaking on t.v. right now it seems like this debate sure will not change much about the preference that about the choice of its stumble electorate during the election that is going
to take place on june 20th 3 however president claimed 2 days ago that this debate will shed a light. on this week just this week before the election but probably we will we will need to see more more in the campaigning period until saturday whether this margin is going to change on be on the advantage of the ruling party candidate children or the advantage of their position candidates been a criminal model thank you so much there in istanbul now to another televised debate candidates vying to become the next u.k. prime minister of clashed over how to strike a deal to leave the european union breaks it of course dominated the discussion as the contenders went head to head in their 1st debate but the favorite to take over as leader of the conservative party skipped the event and hayward has more now from central london. in the end it was
