chavez and our us rival quite out meanwhile met with public sector unions urging them to take strike action to help bring down the government. political analyst chris bambery thinks the u.s. is not in a position to remove the president united states has got a brazen face you know the pumping this out this is its position and we know the united states does not apologize it doesn't bite down until it's forced about their own so it's going to carry on carry on with this but the problem they've gotten the moment is is that they don't loot in a position to topple more durable moderates retaining the support of the armed forces in particular and the united states must be hoping and must be working towards trying to wean a section of the armed forces to break with the dura and to launch some kind of military coup because at the moment given the fact that the dura has been able to respond with all with his own mobilization is on the streets it would seem to me
11:08 am
that it's only by breaking the alliance which he would do in the army that we do is going to force from office that must be what the united states is looking on people in venezuela may have their issues with but do in particular economic issues at the moment but they also remember the whole track record of you know of the united states in the region and in the country and indeed of the local alit which is behind we draw. in terms of its record of governing the country. sixteen people have been killed in a twin suicide bombing and gun attack in the afghan city of jalalabad local journalists not on facey has more. well five assailants who have been involved into this attack were all killed by government forces and the security forces are still looking for three more suspects so these are salience interred a private construction firm which was in contract with the airfield there in jalalabad and they were constructing for them so sixteen people have been killed
11:09 am
and nine other. been wounded this situation of two have been critical. in this attack actually is happening while president ghani visited eastern cannot province. a hospital so that security was quite tight but still the assailants could do manage to enter a house which was very nearby to the airport which is you know well equipped and has drawn down everything so. actually is showing also a failure since the prison is there and the highways and everywhere is also secure it has been a stronghold for a diet in jalalabad also the taliban have increased their attacks especially in the recent weeks they have killed over fifty security forces in

helmand and now it's not clear whether it was the taliban or dice fighters. who attacked gelato about this morning no one has claimed responsibility. the russian and syrian military is have issued a statement accusing american forces in syria of derailing efforts to evacuate people from the infamous rock band camp we've contacted the u.s. led operation inherent resolve for its version of the events artie's maria for national breaks down the story. dramatic humanitarian and security situation in a little bun camp in southeastern syria has been constantly trigger numerous concerns from the rubble on the militarized between syria and jordan for severe living conditions of the refugees inside the camp that were among other things reportedly openly threatened by jihad is that not only had managed to settle in that camp believes not without some help from the u.s. military on the ground but also to take control over some territories and also over
11:11 am
humanitarian aid traffic's in the area basically taking people inside the camp hostage both moscow and washington officials have repeatedly confirmed in fact that indeed some former or current islam is probably manage their way out of the one camp russia has caused them to have been calling on some kind of rescue vaccination operation to take people out of the zone supporting this idea with the polls show in that most of the people are willing to leave this area and has constantly been calling on america to join the effort by damascus to help who rather than the situation of syrians inside these zone according to different estimates that is right now around forty thousand people eighty percent of them
11:12 am
women and children and earlier on wednesday we heard the statement from russia's defense ministry saying that america remains deaf america does not want to support any evacuation and rescue efforts the american stationed in the zone failed to take responsibility for ensuring a safe and unhindered passage of humanitarian convoys through the fifty five kilometers own they are controlling this is essentially direct the implementation of a highly important humanitarian operation. aimed at rescuing syrian citizens trapped in the rueben camp and while the sides of blaming each other for what's going on inside their ragavan canting southeastern syria we have to admit that poor people trapped there continue to suffer and their fate remains quite unclear. for more on this we're joined live by mohammad circle u.n. corner at salam human rights group welcome to the program now what are your estimates of the number of people currently stranded in the camp.
11:13 am
good evening and thank you for having me again russia today. yes sadly this is one of the camps that i have visited a similar cams in love and on the numbers who are for the refugees or the number of the idea is still is not clear and is told is not exact and this is one of the thing we are facing when it comes to military issue with the feed the syrian crisis we don't have a clear. that's one thing second thing this is it's been ongoing especially on. has been ongoing for the last few years the same issue that we see in the flooding the called the disease and the lack of access to camp and also other all the cameras that are visited in love and on seems to be an issue where who should be looking after the syrian refugees and this is need to be set.
11:14 am
by law or regulation who should be responsible about this human being that lives in the camps you mentioned flooding the number could rise is a lot more could be difference from go ahead. i mean i've seen i've seen a report says i've seen reports state there's fifty thousand refugees can't clean living in or currently in fiji of the cambers fifty thousand. so the numbers of berries and this is what we are facing too to say that if we do we don't have exact numbers so at least we can have a clearer plan. you were mentioning the cold flooding disease how would you assess the conditions that people are living there overall. to be honest. sadly we're looking at the syrian refugees or the syrian. numbers worked with a number of. refugees crises agencies in lebanon and we be honest we look at them
11:15 am
as just numbers as not as a human they require dignity and some respect and that's why we'll look deeper into the camps is not just the called is the way they live in the camps you have a family of. ten people living in one tent with their mother and kids and children and one of the sad stories that also we came across we came across two is the dead we don't have a place to bury them only comes outside syria so that's kind of a little dignity that we can provide to the syrian i mean we should divert from the political issue that the american have with the syrian government or with the syrian people and look at the human side aspect of the people living in the camps. they can't by law they should not over the should not prevent any humanitarian
11:16 am
assistance to the camps and by the international conventions and the geneva convention is not should be protecting rather than preventing the humanitarian aid to the camps so what would you say is getting in the way of the humanitarian aid getting to the camp into the people there. yes there is there are there are obstacles to help for example one of the obstacles we face with the refugee crisis in ball. the countries is the question of return we can ask the question the un has . the moment to put an obstacle to the question of return can we ask the syrian if they want to return to syria or not this is the question is forbidden to be asked to the refugees in the border countries they say they can do voluntary but we cannot ask how many they can go back to which area they want to go back to so we can pave the way to their return this is one of the obstacle we face in all of helping out the refugees. some of the some of the laws for example the. camp is
11:17 am
for under the i.d.p. rather than refugees so the responsibility for under the syrian government by law but the syrian government can assist can to seek assistance from an international agencies of the national government to help them. into the camp but currently it falls and the syrian law and so the u.s. has no power and has no mandate to offer to to prevent an attorney or system going to the camp so on for example we have in brussels there's a conference in brussels addressing them metairie and issues in syria and this has to be addressed and has to be addressed by a syrian and geo by a syrian representative rather by a foreign clubs and to speaks on behalf of the syrian people. circle un court nader at human rights group thank you so much for joining us on the program today. the u.k. government finds itself accused of racism after stripping citizenship from

series appearances on prominent news networks as well as dispatches via his live updates from syria blog posts left his political preferences no secret the rebels why do they do it the problem is is that the broad of of of the syrian regime is a force women and children and civilians are facing the rest he's now speaking out against what he's dubbed a racist and unfair system of citizenship stripping laws i mean k. i came out here to help the innocent people there were being massacred by the bashar regime i'm an aid worker the stories come to light following the lifting of the man's anonymity in a case that saw the u.k. government stripped him of his british citizenship back in twenty seventeen he was informed of the decision with this letter it is assessed that you are a british pakistani jewel national whose travel to syria and is aligned to an al qaeda aligned group your return to the u.k. would present a risk to the national security over the united kingdom sharif's lawyer has been
11:21 am
seeking evidence from the home office to find out why exactly his client was deemed a threat what is it the british government is so frightened of that they don't want these individuals in a court of law and they want to quickly shut them of their citizenship and export them somewhere else i do think that some of these individuals kylie song very sensitive information it will be deeply embarrassing to the british state given the british government's role in the conflict in syria over these past eight years i.e. how much support has a british government various points along we've been given these so-called rebel groups and to which development has it been supporting them in terms of the atrocities are being committed by these rebel groups to exculpate themselves of any criminal offense because you know that they've lost the war has been lost the conflict has been won by the sitting government and its allies you know they're thinking about how they're going. it. is really trying to put together some kind of the strangest trait you claim to be in the aid workers
11:22 am
where there are humanitarian grounds the issue of british citizenship being revoked has been in the spotlight in the u.k. recently due to a spike in terrorism and crime according to official figures more than one hundred people were stripped of their nationality and twenty seventeen compared to just fourteen the year before as sharif's appeal continues he maintains his innocence but the home office seems to have already made up its mind and not reporting for duty in london responding to other media the u.k. home office refused to comment on the case saying only that every decision is well substantiated r.t. has also requested a comment. the humanitarian crisis in yemen is deepening every day with much of the country's population on the brink of famine some desperate families have resorted to marrying off their daughters some of them as young as three years old just to get food. my mother in law keeps beating me and when i run away back to
11:23 am
my father's house my father beats me again for a new way i don't want to get married i just want to go back to school son family as they did think that i mean this is no one really where they can make their daughters and they can bring some dowry and that just can't protect the whole families and also other extended members so it is really unfortunate that this is going after some of them that they have received emergency support but you know you need to support are also even limited so they couldn't find find a way that what are their immediate what are the means so this is the one leeway the family i mean. it is very difficult to treat the whole family with this small little support and often to him it is it isn't says they face the safety or security concerns. are so aid also and we are not able to even president ever ate
11:24 am
an untimely. according to oxfam girls in yemen are usually expected to consummate their marriages at around the age of eleven until then they live with their husbands and typically do the housework but being forced into relationships at a very early age is only one of the traumas faced by children in yemen according to humanitarian organizations yemen is one of the worst countries for children to live in more than eleven million are in need of aid and almost half a million suffer from malnutrition the director of oxfam's yemen office says the current situation is catastrophic. what is really really. bad even alarmed me that almost one third of the total population just basically ten maybe just at the brink of a mean and children are malnourished and we all to work to do this all year so water and and also. the to do is an eighteen
11:25 am
hour of crisis that was lost twenty or persons in this century. old and i mean it's just stones on a not provided trying to eat and eat the full she didn't even understand nonfunctional even for a day. when the human agenda. there is the much more protest situation. china's new ban on recycling other countries waste has left the u.s. with the garbage headache hundreds of tons of recyclable trash that were previously processed by the chinese are now simply being burned in the u.s. endangering its feared the health of those who live nearby for years china was the world's top importer of recyclable trash in two thousand and sixteen the u.s. exported sixteen million tons of waste to china which converted it into a variety of new products last year i made washington's trade war on beijing the chinese restricted imports of certain recyclables as a result huge amounts of recyclable waste and up at american incinerators and
11:26 am
landfills so it's not just the u.s. that's affected australia and japan are also looking for new dumping grounds for their growing piles of garbage. focus is that we have to country's largest incinerator the largest up a stone's throw away from where people live at impact in a community should not be impacted at all. to youth and people under age of eighteen are hospitalized due to at a rate three times worse than the average in the state of pennsylvania and that's because of the noise in our side person that comes out of stacks like this incinerator here.
11:27 am
people that work here move you cannot sell a house destroyed a community it destroyed a sense of community despite the locals fears management at the convent incinerator insists that burke below establishments economic expert jeffrey albert tucker believe china's new policy has created a serious problem. china would never admit that this was part of the trade or that this is a brilliant strategy but part of me thinks that it was all intended all along and i have to take my hat off to china it's a very clever trade move it's a way of putting a huge tariff or really a blockade on the worst of american exports to china if it is a tactic it is a brilliant one i don't think that china will change its policy on imported recyclables regardless of this trade war but now that the laws in place it is going to be a permanent part of chinese national policy because there's an actual rationale for
11:28 am
it aside from the trade war namely china wants cleaner air and america's recyclables are not are largely contaminated and china can get cheaper lastic materials through other means this is a catastrophe and yes us policy makers might have anticipated it but as typical day they failed to do so that's a wrap up of the day's top headlines for now and that's all for me as well but we're not neil harvey will be here and about thirty minutes at the latest thanks for tuning.
11:29 am
after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next the different clubs. on one hand it is logical to sit in the home fields where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and a fresh perspective i'm used to surprising people. or not if. i'm going to talk about football not for you or else it will sink holes are going to go. by the way what is it that's like here. i was in los angeles march of one thousand nine hundred one. i go over and i look out the window here and there they are.
11:30 am
so i was arrested that day our father and i wanted her to bring bargain but. i understand she is not going to body and i could probably wouldn't she did me but know just to savor all the scam not as that's not my daughter so she wouldn't do this. and as a result they were under.
