of the most violent in a month and i talked to the rebel positions in it live in hama province is it live is the last opposition stronghold in the country and the government says it will retake it but with three million civilians trapped it's feared an all out assault could lead to a humanitarian catastrophe. for more on the situation let's bring in now and shall hora in beirut and shell thanks for joining us reports of heavy russian ass strikes is this the beginning of a major offensive. but it does seem like that perhaps it will be a phased offensive not the man who did yesterday said that it's time to bring phased stabilization to the problem something we have seen as we've seen sixty eight and strikes in the area concha colony. on is where the chemical attack took
place in april this year it was the bomb by o b c w and this is new c.w. also had a mandate to pinpoint who was behind it and it said it was sitting in government this is believed to be under the control of an extremist how this organization which is now known as. and has in the hides had links with a terrorist organization all that some believe it still does so what russia has said she's trying to do is it's trying to say look we are going to be attacking areas that are directly under the control of this job this organization the other area next come under attack is in northern hama about two weeks ago. some of the job this group or actually moved to northern hama as reinforcement so this is what's coming out at the moment it seems like there will be an offensive and it is a beginning but perhaps of a brazen offensive and how big it's going to be scared we still don't know ok i'm told there are three million civilians in the area what situation of they facing is
there any escape possibility at all. well the fear is that whoever the russians or the syrian government hits there will be civilian casualties just because there are so many civilians in the province of live in this case today the reports that are coming out is that perhaps three to five casualties have a card the observation which is based in the u.k. it says four deaths have occurred whereas the civil defense committees which are in is that these are activists who say three to five four in one three in one village i beg your pardon and one in another this death's door also includes two children and one woman so these are the past that are coming on as far as today's concern but wherever the government hits and whether the syrian government by that i'm mean and the russians would have found any more casualties in congo to talky talky limiting any more refugees in the congo to europe because europe doesn't want anymore that options article call goes open and we go back into syrian territories
or they go off to use an area which is. dominated by the kurds ok i'm shelled bora and beirut thanks so much for your reporting. now to some of the other stories making news around the world a court in egypt has sentenced seventy five people to death over a twenty thirteen pro muslim brotherhood sit in which ended in the killing of hundreds of protesters by security forces those convicted include prominent islamist leaders photo journalist mahmoud aboud saying he'd known as shole can received five years in prison amnesty international has condemned the trial is politically motivated. un peace talks for yemen have failed the un special envoy for yemen confirmed the rebel delegation would not be coming to geneva in response the saudi backed government delegation announced it would go home the war in yemen has been raging for three years and claimed some ten thousand lives two thirds of

gone viral on social media afghanis ali and bahrain the said the attack started with racist taunts. get out of germany out and then they were hitting us one of them did like this to me then ali with the left turned him in the face. because if you want to the two afghanis have filed criminal complaints others were also the targets of violent attacks says a victim councillor he says he's spoken with some twenty three people who say they were attacked. days people have been the targets of physical attacks they were kicked punched people sometimes don't report these attacks straight away that means that we believe the attacks on aug twenty six were more prevalent than reported it's only now people are coming forward to report being chased or attacked . the state prosecutor in dresden is not investigating these as pursuits the term
cannot be legally applied but as other offenses. in the context of demonstration laws there are of course many different kinds of crimes these can be seen in the videos on social media and we now have to investigate these crimes using the video material that we have. by friday night police had begun one hundred forty preliminary investigations into the violence at the camp in its demonstrations. police are also looking into an attack on a jewish restaurant and chemists during those protests media reports say around a dozen mosque to salem's hold rocks and bottles and shouted anti-semitic semitic slogans the restaurant owner was reportedly injured during the incident cabinets remains tense with crowds of demonstrators returning to the streets on friday marches many wearing far right insignia chanted we all the people and this is our
city hundreds of police officers were deployed cabinets police said there were more than two thousand far right protesters several hundred counter-demonstrations also gathered in the city center they've been no reports of violence. migration debate has exposed a deep rift between germany's east and west in the first two years after the collapse of communism and german reunification deep divisions remain the chief political editor. went to the eastern state of saxony to find out why. just over an hour's drive from kenya it's the small town of meissen is feeling kennett's this current political patronage will reduce the congregation to the man who led saxony is political education agency for eight years is running for mayor here in the city center many saxon's told him they feel hard done by the media over the events in canada is mosul. despite the fact that ordinary people with that
everybody was betrayed as right wing which is why i have to tell you i lived through communist east germany and this is more of the same we're seeing the sort this is due to our. almost three decades after german reunification germany's east seems still haunted by its communist past. or. there's a line of demarcation between east and western europe that runs somewhere through germany. i can't tell you where exactly that line is. but i think we need to think about the fact that parts of germany's east culturally historically and politically more like poland and hungary or other eastern states. its people are. they have their own sense of cultural identity they didn't experience the waves of liberalism pluralism and the americanization that swept across western europe. and . in meissen almost one third voted for the anti migration a.f.d.
party in the last general elections yet it has one of the lowest proportions of foreigners in germany and my son has its own market same left by an arson attack on a migrant shelter three years ago as we talk outside we spot a former far right in p. d. party leader who lives across the road nicole smith admits he met the arsonist the night before the attack by the debate was never about whether they can come but the city councillor had promised that he would talk to all of us living here before anything happens and that didn't happen as we read in the paper that an asylum shelter would be opened here in four weeks that's not right. that doesn't justify an arson attack and yes that was stupid well that was more than stupid. the attack cost my son its reputation but it's only a symptom of political failure says it doesn't work that way and of course that doesn't excuse an arson attack but that explains
a little of the outrage at the lack of political communication question and that seems to be a basic problem and says i and proud of their tradition many saxons are suspicious of change they weren't asked about many tell us ken it could happen anywhere. saxony has a problem that much is political consensus here it's regional elections in bavaria and the state of hesse or including european elections next may that will show whether that extends to the whole of germany and potentially beyond. now mixed fortunes for two tennis legends in the u.s. open seventy finals with novak djokovic and defending champion rafah nidal in action it was an unhappy day an adult with a spaniard forced to retire with a knee injury after going to set down to one martin del potro joke a bitch powered his way to the final with a straight sets win over japan's k. quarry subban made up last year when he had to watch from the sidelines while
