there are related issues to this for example an election going forward how would an election take place in syria who would be allowed to vote would those that of fled syria the refugees that are in many countries in the middle east but also in europe how would they vote in any election so there are lots of on result issues and i can tell you there are many skeptics who fear that when this process after all this negotiation on the committee and who could be an 8 when it goes to geneva it might go the same way as previous u.n. peace efforts in geneva but as you say the secretary general believes this is one beat of good news on syria coming at the start of this important week of diplomacy and even though he's addressing in about 15 minutes time all the world 'd leaders on climate change he felt it important to get in this statement and to lock in the progress they've made on this and james that one does wonders how how far they can go how far any political presence can go when there is still fighting there still
10:33 pm
fighting in northwest of the country and indeed there's a great deal of disagreement as to the status of the northeast of the country. yes well i think what they're trying to do is deal with one narrow post of this which is the future constitutional arrangements for syria and that takes you away from the issues on the ground but clearly the issues on the ground are so serious when you have the province of idlib which very much now is the last battleground of this long war when you have 3000000 people there when you have persistent claims that the syrian government and its russian allies are bombing those people but in particular bombing medical centers and hospitals there and no one really knows how this is going to conclude and everyone fears that they could be a very big death toll there is nowhere really for these people to flee not possible in most cases for them to cross the border into. turkey and they obviously many of
10:34 pm
them fearful to cross the line from where they are indeed live to other parts of syria which are under sad control where they may well face repression and arrest so those people stuck there more than 3000000 people with nowhere to run to all right thank you for now james we'll let you go because we know you've got to go and cover the start of that summit on the environment where all the arrivals are taking place behind you but for now thanks very much. that teachers in india did miss of unrest in the recent government crackdown of preventing students from going back to school at 7 weeks since the indian government revokes the region's autonomy as shuttle phones and the internet victoria gate in the reports.

10:49 pm
for a climate action summit but don't try and play one of them. families wait for news of their relatives in afghanistan after an apparent airstrike kills at least 40 people. hundreds of thousands of holidaymakers stranded as a travel giant goes out of business. now the u.n. secretary general antonio good 10 ish has within the last how far how far also announce a formation of a constitutional committee to syria which it is hoped would be a step towards restarting a political process i am pleased to announce the agreement of the governments of the syrian arab republic and the syrian negotiation school mission for a credible balance then the inclusive constitutional committee that will be facilitated by the united nations in geneva i welcome the progress made by mike by the
10:50 pm
government and the opposition and my special envoy facilitative you get him and you know accordance with security council resolution 2254 of 215 and we will convene the constitutional committee in the coming weeks. all right let's go to our diplomatic editor now james bays james how big a deal is this then the announcement of a constitutional committee to move syria and along the path towards peace. well the u.n. has been pushing for this for months and months and months this was the work of the previous special envoy demas storer he was pushing for this he never got it gaffe pederson who took over at the beginning of the year a special envoy has been working on it since then the u.n. thought they got this deal last week when we had a meeting in turkey with the leaders of turkey iran and russia but they were still worried about the syrian government and whether it was really supporting this
10:51 pm
efforts are i spoke to secretary general antonio good terrorists last week and he said we think we've got the deal we're not quite sure and that's why he sent mr pederson to damascus in recent hours he sat down with the deputy prime minister of syria walid moallem and he had what he said was a positive meeting about his lead to the announcement it is an important breakthrough because this is what the u.s. has been concentrating on on syria but it's worth also stressing this is a small part of the solution to the problems of syria because they're not going to be dealing about with any of the issues on the ground the ongoing war in syria they're dealing with one thing which is a feature constitution for syria and i can tell you skeptics are concerned that once this constitutional committee actually starts work it will take a bit of time to get everyone to geneva it may well go the way of previous peace efforts in geneva which are just got bogged down and have in the end failed and
10:52 pm
most observers believe in every case in the past that's because the syrian government hasn't really wanted them to succeed and has told paedo those efforts and also james i do understand that you've managed to have a bit of a chat with the iranian foreign minister zarif and he's given you a little bit more detail as to what that proposal is for more security in the gulf . yeah well as ever a touring this week when you've got so many world leaders in town the focus is supposed to be on climate today but important developments on syria important developments coming from iran as you say the iranian foreign minister mohammad javad zarif invited a small group of reporters to breakfast and try to flesh out the proposals we're going to hear in the coming days from his boss the iranian president hassan rouhani iran i think is feeling the pressure at the moment we have the specter of war we're
10:53 pm
likely to get tough words in 24 hours time from president trump and so iran is coming up with its own initiative to try and calm things down in the gulf area they're calling it the whole move initiative. minister zarif said that's because they wouldn't call it the persian gulf initiative because no one we can even agree on the name of that area of water because of course arab countries call it the arabian gulf so who moves is a name they can agree on he says it would consist of all the countries that are there in the gulf region under a u.n. umbrella who would meet to try and deal with some of the issues like navigation in the gulf of shipping and other issues of tension in the region so what he's saying here is that this is a very sensible proposal and really how could anyone object to it of course the objection i think is going to come from the u.s. we know that russia has supported similar ideas when they've been floated in the
10:54 pm
past and i've even heard that the u.k. is quite in favor of these sort of ideas that actually build on the very old security council resolution from the time of the iran iraq war resolution 598 but i think the u.s. isn't going to like this for one reason the iranian proposal has all the regional countries that the u.s. doesn't get a seat at the table marty all right james thanks for. we'll come back to a bit later on once this this environment summit gets underway because we're expecting that within within a couple of minutes or so we're expecting the secretary general antonio guterres to kick off events where many many world leaders are attending this is being called an environment action summit the secretary general has made it pretty clear that he wants a plan of action to come from the countries already we understand about 60 world leaders. attending but interesting the impacts not surprisingly are they you see
10:55 pm
prime minister narendra modi who is june to speak in about 30 minutes time according to the show joe they do try to stick to the show these events at the united nations of course will carry his speech live us in the as he gets his feet but starting the conference will be good and as i was saying there's already been some sort of commitment by many countries to reduce carbon emissions because this also comes on a day when the u.n. meterological agency has released a report warning that actually global warming is occurring 3 times faster than previously thought so it is really an emergency situation which has brought together these leaders a day before the annual general assembly when all of the leaders from $190.00 countries at the u.n. they get up and they make a speech but this is a specific summit for one day on climate and as i say you'll be kept right up to
10:56 pm
date with everything that happens there here at al-jazeera but in the meantime we'll come away from that and look at afghanistan where at least 40 people have been killed in what's thought to have been an airstrike. it was in color in helmand province that's in the south of the country people have now gathered outside local hospitals where the wounded are being treated the authorities are investigating reports that the airstrike actually hit a wedding celebration our correspondent rob mcbride has more from the capital kabul . this seems to have been a major military operation in the mussa color district of helmand province this is a known taliban stronghold involving both it seems ground forces and also an airstrike now the ministry of defense here in kabul is talking about this in terms of being a successful military operation saying a number of foreign taliban fighters as it describes them were killed in this
10:57 pm
attack others were captured and a large cache of taliban weaponry was seized but it does seem according to various reports coming from helmand province including the governor's office. number of civilians were also caught up in this attack particularly from a wedding party that was happening nearby that was caught in this airstrike now the number of civilian casualties varies the taliban has issued a statement saying tens of people have been killed others injured other figures differ to that but what we do know it does seem as though a large number of civilians once again have been caught up in a battle between taliban and coalition forces and a number include colluding many women and children this comes of course as afghanistan is preparing for its presidential election in the coming saturday the last couple of days have been generally quiet here in afghanistan but we have seen
10:58 pm
generally a surge in the number of attacks taking place both by the taliban who have threatened to disrupt this election process and also in response coalition attacks trying to make sure that there is security here for this election to take place and we are still several days away from polling. 7 children have been killed in kenya after their school collapsed at least 64 others are in the hospital family members are outside the school as rescue workers search for children who may be trapped under the rubble catherine sawyer has more from the site almost everyone has now left this scene there were many many people who just come to witness and what trying to come to terms with what has happened minister of education was also here and he said the government has started investigations on what could have caused this collapse we have also not too long ago talked to
10:59 pm
a parent was still looking for his children 2 children who are missing he's going to 5 hospitals and he came here and the red cross personnel directed him to go to the mortuary so he was very very distraught the incident happened right there very hard to tell all cleared all these books to see you're seeing were left behind by children it was a chaotic scene children running other screaming we saw throughout the day some of the survivors collecting the books that are somewhat intact they've taken them to one of the classrooms they'll be sorted later and perhaps will be re-used and on this other side is the debris this was a 2 story structure that was constructed using metal sheets and some mood and there was a concrete slab that separated the 2 stories we're talking with talk to people and i can see as well so a lot of people telling us that this concrete slab was very poorly reinforced now
11:00 pm
the 64 children who are in hospital doctors are saying are doing well they are still there stabilized for many many parents parents particularly of the children who died in imaginable pain like this man i talked about still looking for his children. the iranian president hassan rouhani is on his way to the u.n. general assembly in new york where he says he will reveal full details of that goal security proposal we were hearing a bit about earlier tensions in the region a simmering after a series of attacks most recently a drone and missile strike on saudi oil facilities saudi arabia and the u.s. they both blame iran and u.s. reinforcements are being sent to the region iran denies involvement and has denounced the presence of foreign troops in the region a setback as our correspondent in the iranian capital tehran.
