8:03 am
bombardment if you look at the experience of iraq no aleppo. all of this experienced bombings but in the case of. the hour when we did the bombings it was we did it has been pointed to specific targets only. but people here paid a very high price for the five months long battle. hundreds were killed they have buried in this mosque graves. most of the victims were never identified denying their families closure. over sixty five thousand people remain displaced many are still searching for their life once. has lost four of her eight children she believes they were taken hostage and used as human shields. for simply i feel a very deep pain inside of me i missed my children they were gone in
8:04 am
a blink of an eye i can't be with them anymore. it hurts because i can still feel them and have them. in the suburbs life is slowly returning to normal but the biggest muslim city in the philippines has been changed forever. martial law remains in force with soldiers everywhere the impoverished region has witnessed decades of conflict between muslims and christians who make up the vast majority of the filipino population many young muslims feel disenfranchised. last year after was spied on the military passing on details of troop movements to i.a.s. fighters holed up in morocco he tells us that he stood ready to fight for an islamic
8:05 am
state. so. we have an advantage because we just blend in with the military cannot easily identify us as fighters know how to use a gun. or no i mean i would not fight in my ra again or in any other muslim area here. in the same thing will happen again our own muslim people would get hurt. but if the battle happens elsewhere i will join. so why little i mean. like many others up to blames president roderigo due territory for bombing merapi the government has promised reconstruction and great to muslim autonomy but until those promises are full vote angry young men like up to it will continue to pose a threat. to you sandra picked as man was part of the team filming in mirali city
8:06 am
and she joins us to talk more about the story sandra thank you so much for joining us a lot of us are familiar with the so-called islamic states presence in syria in iraq how deeply rooted are the islamists in the philippines well there is a longstanding insurgency there is a lot of potential for an islamist insurgency and as isis losing territory in iraq and syria there is this threats of moving over like up to here he told us when he was receiving jihadi training in the jungle camp in spring of two thousand and fifteen the robot so to foreign fighters in his camp alone and these foreign fighters many hate from neighboring countries indonesia malaysia but also from arab countries and from chechnya as he said and as long as there are grievances longstanding grievances which are not addressed i think the potential is there and international organizations like al qaeda and islamic state you know they do want
8:07 am
you know to establish themselves and southeast asian mindanao as it is it's a place where they can grow roots i want to ask you about those grievances in a moment but first those pictures are just stunning you know this is such a devastated city how are residents coping. they conflict with and they conned rebuilt their house because the entire area is still very much sealed off so we're looking at about sixty five thousand people who are displaced who are you know in emergency refugee camps or squatting with relatives being you know unrooted and there is a high rate of unemployment especially affecting young people like opto who in the . government is not doing anything for us. we pick up weapons again he said in the report he worked with i assume would do it again why is that where does this incredible anger stem from is it the unemployment is the economic situation it is i think many poverty and unemployment because he didn't come across
8:08 am
as a deep religious person in the whole and if you look at mindanao it is a very impoverished area there is a longstanding contradict historically you know if you look back to colonial times . between christians and muslims and the philippines as it is is a many roman catholic country only five percent of the population are muslim and they you know have this feeling that they are a victim's of historical injustice that they are suppressed that they are disenfranchised that they are not part of political decision making in the country and this is something jihadi organizations can easily exploit with young people like are due to the centerpieces not speaking to us this morning thank you so much for sharing your reporting with us. not some other stories making headlines around the world french authorities say a fifth person has died of injuries sustained in the attack near the christmas market in the city of strasbourg the paris prosecutor's office identified the

him on friday. british prime minister theresa may is expected to warn lawmakers later today against seeking a second referendum on bret's it may will be briefing the house of commons on talks that she held with european leaders at last week's summit she had traveled to brussels seeking to renegotiate parts of her breasts a deal with the e.u. but it has faced so much opposition from lawmakers that some of may's own aides have reportedly begun backing a second vote as the only way to break the impasse and. let's get the latest on for exit with john worth a political blogger who writes extensively on bragg's ajanta good good to have you back with us we heard there of the truce amazing spec to to warn m.p.'s against a second referendum why is she so against this possibility she still bucking her own deal that's taken such a painstaking negotiations to to agree and she still believes us the right way forward she thinks she's delivering on my vote from two thousand and sixteen and doesn't want to put out to the people in
8:11 am
a second referendum she thinks it would be very divisive to the british society if you did that. nevertheless the difficulty is she's not making any headway in poems gets her own views through and so therefore maybe a second referendum might be the way of breaking that log jam bear in mind however that theresa may already maybe a month ago refused to even countenance the idea that a second referendum was was possible today she. he's probably going to talk about why she's still opposed to it so something's changed he's even talking about some of a referendum now something that just a month ago she refused to even countenance it does seem like that the momentum around a second referendum is growing now we sent our reporter out in london to get some voices hear what people have to say about the possibility of that and starting with just outside parliament one of the big problems is that there's been a bit of lack of trust and misunderstanding across all the parties whether that's between britain and the you whether it's been the two sides of the argument here in britain there's just not enough dialogue going and constructive dialogue and so if we can just get a little bit of trust and goodwill back into the the talks then hopefully we can
8:12 am
move things on a little bit we're going to miss out on lots of things and i think nobody appreciated when this. was done in twenty sixteen just how many aspects of our life and everybody's life in europe it was going to affect we still don't know what is going to be the rules if we don't know if we still be able to travel freely in europe so. we just waited on the. stuff to athens who understood. john that sentiment really seems to sum things up a lot of uncertainty a lot of frustration on the streets as we heard there we are still looking ahead to that vote in parliament expected to take place in january and it seems like there is no majority in british parliament for anything else what would parliament vote for there is no brit variant that commands majority support in parliament and that's the essence of the whole problem here to resume
8:13 am
a steal some kind of soft of brics it's something that britain have a closer at the moment relationship with the european union or the more radical option in leaving without a deal mover's options for france and majority support that's because ultimately the whole prospect of rights it was sold on a false premise that essentially the brits and leaving the european union would be an easy negotiation but without one of any difficulties in managing to leave the block and so we now know that was not to be not what was not so so rare century two ways out britain could just stop the clock on the whole thing or essentially if you go for a second referendum as a way out of the on purpose and the clock is still ticking because ultimately britain is supposed to manage to deliver a break by twenty ninth of march two thousand one thousand that's just over one hundred days away from today and there is no prospect of the moment working out a way forward and doesn't seem to be the key argument for such a second referendum is essentially to say westminster is glock's nothing to get through westminster put that issue back to the people now it's evolved a controversial way of looking at a political problem but it also is unprecedented in british political history the
8:14 am
palm that will be brought in in such a complicated manner was just very briefly john what does the e.u. do at this point just sit back and watch it go to sit back and watch there's nothing else the european union can we do there's nothing else the european union can really offer and that's the reason why the summit last week to reason may go so little what can you brussels give because it whichever way brussels would go that would also be an unpopular this is that she ate a problem in london in the house of commons and until about that blockage is removed we're not going to make any progress here where thanks again for your analysis. to hungary now where there's been the biggest demonstration of public discontent sense right when prime minister viktor orban came to power and twenty ten an estimated fifteen thousand people braved freezing temperatures in the capital budapest to protest against new labor legislation that opposition groups are calling a slave law. it's the fourth protest like this in
8:15 am
a week. thousands hit the streets in budapest marching against the government. i was the protest for sparked by a controversial labor law dubbed by demonstrators as the slave law it allows companies to demand four hundred hours of overtime a year and then delay the payment for up to three years. protesters are also angered by the government's plan to create a new system of courts which critics fear won't be independent of the country's prime minister viktor orban. demonstration was organized by labor unions and opposition groups they're worried about the direction of the country than. we have unfortunately reached the point where the government interferes with almost every bit of people's every day life in cultural administration labor and health care you know and on the long haul i think the discontent is growing and with this
8:16 am
not only anger and frustration but also those voices which would like to make change i think this is a process where we are trying to come up with new ideas that go back to the fact that in a similar mischa's if i this is one of the biggest attempts by opposition groups in hungary to oppose addict all bans leadership shining a light on what opposition voices see as hungry slide into a third tarion rule. but as they get nasty fifteen is now over and here to help us make sense of it all is press harrington from the sports press good morning to you already so the first of the two sunday games lights they dominated minds tell us about this match so you know i had expected r.p. to be too much ahead over minds considering they've never lost a much afraid of a home crowd in their short lived history plus army life is coming off an embarrassing draw against the norwegian side rosenborg ball club in the europa
8:17 am
league which booted them out of that out of that competition so in my opinion there was payback in the air their star striker team obana was out of that europe a league match but he was back in this one gets mites and he got some payback let's take a look at the report. like six regular attackers yousif housen and t.-mo vanna were back in the starting line up unlike at their midweek europa league match and they went right on the offensive house and opening the scoring in the fourteenth minute i get into kevin compass cross just before the mind's defenders. like to see pressed on steep in their own half and sprang into action when they won the ball i know setting up house and to make it to neil only five minutes later his second death the day and a fifth of the season. shortly before half time the visitors finally created a chance and cut the money see both hit the target in the face of some sloppy leipzig defending that scoring courage minds to be bold are going forward but it
8:18 am
opened up a lot of space for leipsic to counter attack team over making three one in the seventy fifth minute putting the results beyond doubt. and in the final minutes van a back to his fifth brace of the campaign was for one the final score like six attacking do house and invent made all the difference. you know cress last is in life so yes they missed out the champions league because they finished sixth can they change that to some around. yeah i think they were a good movie for when you factor in their defensive performance right now right now they have the best defense in the bonus league of their goalkeeper peter good luck she has been outstanding only conceding fourteen goals in plus we as we just saw a team of a who typically scores in bunches and with house in helping assisting you know with the office of production i think sky's the limit with rb leipsic especially when you factor in no more europe to concern themselves with only the bundesliga and the german cup so we have to wait and see all right let's talk about
8:19 am
sunday's other match at frankfurt got a win away at leverkusen take us in that one we have both of these sides have been doing very well in their europa league competition they're both leading their respective groups it's interesting frankfurt has been punching above their weight all season long in my opinion especially when you factor in their new coach you know but one thing frankfurt has never done is they've never lost if they've got in the lead and that's the way it worked out against labor couzin and then they rebounded on top of that they had two losses heading into this match let's take a look frank first top scorer luke a yellow which had to settle for a place on the bench but not didn't blunt his team's attack the hundred side took the lead in the twenty eighth minute when philip custance crossed to danny de costa tappin by a look to the linesman but the goal scorer was just on side one nil to frankfurt that haas time. in the second half it was coast it's his turn to get on the scoresheet after sebastian i was cross found this space. to nil
8:20 am
and the hosts were in control. and weren't going down without a fight though corinne bello robbie powell and hunter have the deficit with twenty five minutes to go. but frankfurt held on to return to winning ways off the back to back losses. chris we're just looking at you know frankfurt they've been great in the europa league but not so good in the bundesliga can they really chase the german cup title in the bundesliga well you know yeah they they won the german cut last season. we'll have to wait and see if they can defend that but i think everyone had frankfurt you know down for the count when they lost their coach you know their coach nico kobashi was now coaching abby who has been remarkable leading this frankfurt side and plus they have a lot of goals scores to speak about they have who can yo bitch sebastian and ray beach all these three have been very prolific in front of goal in terms of there's going to production they all have
8:21 am
a handful of goals among them so i think the only thing frank one has to worry about is this reality that infects a lot of clubs there either a first half or second have club we've seen frankfurt be fairly successful in the first half we have to wait and see if they can maintain you know that level of plate moving forward but it's going to get thick down the stretch you know to consider them a top runner in this league in germany. you got to live in frankfurt to believe all that i think so we'll have to wait and see all right present in from sports thanks so much for your analysis this morning ok. the annual awards for german athletes of the year have been handed out with angela khabar patrick langer and the men's national ice hockey team winning the honors a tennis star khabar won the title at wimbledon this year and returned to number two in the world rankings try athlete became the iron man a world champion for the second straight year when he ordered a break in the course record better for both times and the men's ice hockey team
8:22 am
won a silver medal for germany at the olympic games and john chiang. already that is so long ago already i know if we've already forgotten what they've even won or you've got a you're here with business now on a story about italy striking a deal with the e.u. over its controversial budget well i don't know yet if they can strike a deal but they're certainly trying to sue me which which is abuse of it is government has agreed on the basis of a new budget aimed as avoiding disciplinary action from the european union now this move comes after the country's original spending plans were found to be in breach of e.u. fiscal rules italy's leaders want to increase welfare payments cut taxes and reduce the retirement age but the usus those plans will raise the country's deficit beyond acceptable levels the details of the revised budget i'm not yet know. while meanwhile the turkish economy is slowing and that in the midst of a domestic currency crisis the turkish lira tumbled as much as forty seven percent
8:23 am
against the u.s. dollar in august g.d.p. expanded by only one point six percent in the third quarter and that is the weakest growth since the coup against a president richard type add a one two years ago rating agencies like fitch expects turkey to slide into recession and the negative outlook could weigh on the upcoming regional elections. the situation in istanbul seems a bit more relaxed than two months ago back then the political differences with the usa caused a severe economic crisis inflation fell slightly to just under twenty two percent the value of the turkish lira has stabilized this was aided by the fact that the country's central bank raised the key interest rate to twenty four percent so is everything all right now not really. exports rose by nine and a half percent since last october due to a weekly or at the same time imports slumped by almost twenty one point five
8:24 am
percent domestic demand also fell by three point five percent the crisis doesn't seem to be over yet the government now wants to ensure that the turks feel as little of a crisis as possible before the important regional elections in march it could support the economy with subsidies but that would probably only postpone the crisis in turkey. of a more i'm joined by dorian joining jones who joins us in istanbul durrant imports you just heard the reports will than twenty percent of domestic demand fell by three point five percent how is all of that reflected on the streets of cities. well the main pain is being felt in turkey is food prices have been soaring since the collapse in the currency official inflation is running for food at over twenty seven percent but it's much higher for key staples like potatoes onions which many turks depend on they've those prices of have doubled in even some cases tripled now
8:25 am
the government has been blaming host sailors for holding and even been raiding warehouse warehouses but that still has done little to this surge in food prices and also being felt by a wave upon wave of double digit increases for electricity and natural gas another double digit rise is expected this month and this is hit consumer demand one striking figure the demand for consumer durables has full twenty four percent in the last quarter and there is further pain expected in the coming months winter is expected to be very difficult. how hopeful dorian i check are citizens that the economy will rebound and who should be able to achieve that. well i mean turkey is no stranger to economic crisis but normally the u.d.c. very sharp rebounds a v. but the lot of expectation that the magnitude of the shock of this major currency shock could lead to a much longer recession and that is the key challenge facing turkey central bank
8:26 am
and government to get out of this recession now there has been some positive signs turkey huge current account deficit has now reversed and there is are now in surplus also the currency to have stabilized and recover some of the losses that it suffered this year these are seen as positive signs and that will put pressure on turkey central bank to start cutting its twenty four percent interest rate which is crippling turkish business but the fear from international investors is that turkey will cut too soon and that could lead to a further collapse in the currency and lead to another surge in inflation and the menace of stark fallacious and that is the major dilemma facing turkey's central bank and the government at the moment all right dorian just very briefly ideally just very or not at all how important is economic stability for adam and his government. what i've seen is key for his more than fifteen years of electoral success has been built on a booming economy and now he faces a prospect of an election he local elections but turkey's main cities if facing
8:27 am
a recession this is a major challenge for a dog and that is why expect to put pressure on the central bank to cut interest rates as head of those polls daryn jones there reporting for us from istanbul thank you so much meanwhile thousands of greek pensioners to to the streets of the capital assets this weekend call of the government to reverse pension cuts post as the country's plunged into a debt crisis back in two thousand and nine the measures imposed as part of an international bailout program that offered the country cheap loans in exchange for wide ranging reforms greece managed to exit the program earlier this year but one in five people are still out of work and some families rely on pension payments to get by. it watching the up in you and then more coming up at the top of the al-a z that.
