5:00 am
> hello. welcome to the newshour live from doha. >> saying no to drones. thousands rally against u.s. strikes in pakistan. the u.s. secretary of state arrives in geneva to lend his weight to talks on iran's nuclear program. >> typhoon haiyan's most vulnerable victims. the u.n. calls for action to help 4 million children affected by the storm. we'll report from thailand on
5:01 am
the skin advertisement that prompted allegations of racism. >> we begin in pakistan where thousands of protesters are gathering in peshawar. in support of opposition leader imran khan who wants the u.s. to stop drone attacks. he threatens to stop nato supply routes to the north if the government fails to take action. first let's cross to peshawar. how big are the crowds there right now? >> well, the crowds have been growing ever since we came here this morning, a couple of hours ago. it must be understood that people are coming from all different province, from different cities. some are en route. imran khan's party is being
5:02 am
supported by the army and other allied parties. as you can see behind me several thousands people, and it must be understood that this is a city that received deadly bombings. despite a security threat the people are braving the elements. they are coming here. there is resentment against the drone strikes. imran khan is drawing support and crowds. >> he wants to block nato's supply routes if the drone strikes don't stop. as you say, he has the popular support. does he have the power, the legal authority to block the routes? >> well, there are legal implications. it is a provincial government. foreign policy is the domain of the central government. there is considerable anger as far as the population is
5:03 am
concerned. what imran khan is saying is he'll allow the people to go, as far as the protests are concerned and that his party will stop nato supplies from travelling to the province unless the americans give tacit approval and understanding to pakistan that there'll be no more drone strikes. imran is basically listening to the voice of the people. he wants to develop a strong movement against the drone strikes. there'll be critical issues with the central government, but the provincial government says if party workers and supporters ensure the supplies are blocked. you won't find a party leadership ruling the province, but other leaders who will talk to their people. >> thank you. we'll get the view from islamabad. how is the rally in peshawar
5:04 am
being viewed in islamabad. how much pressure is sharif's government under. >> nawaz sharif made a speech, discussing rising terrorism in this country and the relationship that pakistan has with india. he didn't talk about imran khan's rally or this threats to block the nato supply routes. we understand nawaz sharif and his government are concerned and unhappy about the move. since nawaz sharif took power in may of this year the relationship, the critical relationship with washington has been on the upswing. sharif was in washington earlier this year. he met president obama at the white house. although the issue of drones came up, it appeared that this relationship, which has been fractured over the years, was on
5:05 am
the mend. the u.s. approved billions in aid to come to pakistan. we understand it helped pakistan secure a critically needed loan from the international monetary fund. these are things that nawaz sharif is trying to protect. blocking nato supply routes could help that and that has the government concerned. >> thank you very much indeed. live from islamabad. staying in pakistan - 11 teachers have been kidnapped. they were taking part in a polio vaccination campaign for schoolchildren. they were taken by the taliban. it's the latest in a series of attacks on pakistani health workers. >> u.s. secretary of state john kerry is in geneva to join negotiations on iran's nuclear program. it is raising hopes that the latest round of talks could end with a breakthrough. john kerry jones russian and french counterparts. diplomats are expected to arrive
5:06 am
raising hopes of a breakthrough. what is on the table? iran says it has the right to enrich uranium insisting that it is for nuclear research. it says the ability to enrich is red line. but that technology can produce bombs. france, u.s., china, russia and the u.s. want to stop that happening and are calling on iran to allow more inspections of its facilities, in return tehran wants an end to crippling sanctions. now we go live to our correspondent covering the talks. the big guns arrived in geneva. a sign of a break through? >> most are here. some to arrive. signs of a breakthrough. impossible not to see signs with political heavy weights arriving in geneva, two weeks after they
5:07 am
came here. remember two weeks ago they thought there was a deal only to discover there was not. the latest to arrive, a german. there is a chance of a deal, but there's work to be done. john kerry arrived during the course of the morning. there's a flurry of meetings he's attended since spending time with catherine ashton who has been coordinating talks. he met the french foreign minister. that, of course, because the french have taken a tough line. french objections scuppered a deal weeks ago. and john kerry met sergei lavrov, his aim to see that his colleagues are of a unified view. >> do we know what they have agreed on so far, and what the
5:08 am
sticking points are? >> we really don't, i'm afraid to tell you. we are not being briefed. that's the nature of the talks through this round and the previous rounds. they are guarded about what is being discussed, what sticking points remain and have been resolved. anonymous links suggesting that there has been progress on one major issue. iran's stated right to enrich uranium on its soil. it wants it accepted and acknowledged in the face of a number of security council resolutions. it banned enrichment. there may be language in a draft text that has been formulated to created a diplomatic fudge around the issue. there'll be outstanding issues. we don't know what they are. >> john hall live in geneva. >> egypt expelled the turkish
5:09 am
ambassador to cairo as the latest blow to diplomatic ties which suffered since the coup in july. now live from cairo. do we know why the turkish ambassador has been asked to leave? >> abbinger at -- anger at turkey has been simmering. since mohamed morsi was ousted the egyptian foreign ministry was angry at the prime minister recep tayyip erdogan statements denouncing what happened to the former president. back in august, if you recall both countries had called back the ambassadors for consultation. the egyptian ambassador never returned. the foreign ministry called in the turkish ambassador to tell
5:10 am
him he was personae non grata. >> afghanistan's president will ask tribal leaders to ask for a security pact. leaders gathered for talks. if the loya jirga agrees to a deal u.s. troops will be allowed to stay in afghanistan beyond the 2014 deadline. we across to jane ferguson in kabul. was the move expected from hamid karzai? >> it was not expected. as the delegates face a last full day of negotiating the pack, the row between hamid karzai and washington d.c. is overshadowing that. the delegates tomorrow are supposed to present opinions on the draft, whether or not they support it or want changes made. really, what people are asking
5:11 am
is even if they do support it, will it be signed? the president is sticking to his guns, releasing a statement saying that last night he spoke to u.s. secretary of state john kerry and reiterated his position that he will not sign it until after the presidential elections in april. we have seen an estimate from the u.s. secretary of defense, chuck hagel rejecting that saying it needs to be signed by the end of the year, otherwise he would advise president obama to not make military plans for afghanistan after 2014. >> what happens in the dispute over the timing of the pact is not resolved? >> if it's not resolved there'll be no way of moving forward. the americans are saying that if it's not resolved, not signed, they, themselves will not make plans to stay. that could throw into doubt whether or not there'll be any foreign troops here in 2015.
5:12 am
a lot of people say they don't think that's likely and this is like a brinkmanship negotiation between hamid karzai and washington d.c. these rows have erupted in the past. they have a troubled relationship and have done for some years. what is indicate if is the fact that president hamid karzai yesterday released a statement throwing another argument into this complex situation, saying that u.s. forces entered a house in nangahar province and killed two civil jans. isaaf forces responded saying there was an operation and there was 100 or so afghan forces supported by about 17 foreign mentors. what is interesting about the row, as to who was there and who shot who is that that kind of situation won't necessarily be solved by the bit lateral
5:13 am
security agreement. one of the reasons the americans would like to stay is to mentor or train the forces. as the riot continues it's active of problems after 2014, even if this is signed. >> jane ferguson reporting live from kabul. >> police in lebanon say they have identified one of the suicide bombers who attacked the iranian embassy in beirut. the man is from the southern port city and has links with islamist groups. 23 people were killed in the twin blasts on tuesday. nearly 150 others were wounded. >> inside syria government forces continue to make gains in rebel-held territory. the advance on damascus, aleppo and homs. >> in the war in syria, the momentum shifted. government forces made significant advances in weeks and would appear to be a new
5:14 am
strategy to surround the rebels. after days of fighting the army pushed opposition fighters out of a number of fighters close to damascus, affecting the rebels ability to strike in the heartland. fighting close to the lebanese border gave troops an advantage in the mountains, an area that was in rebel hands for most of the war, in which they depended for smuggling weapons. the army advanced in the north, capturing towns around aleppo, regaining access to bases and supply routes. the government's recent strategy has been reversing expansive gains made by the rebels and exposed how vulnerable they are. several factors contributed to this. the main one is the strong support the army has from shia fighters were bordering countries. and fighting between the western
5:15 am
bagged army and al qaeda. u.s. policy has been cited. which backtracked after citing the regime's chemical weapons. gone are the days of debating the no-fly gown. the international community is focused on how to destroy the stockpile of chemical weapons. it's a complicated process. no country has offered to host the chemicals. >> that's good news for bashar al-assad. his forces regain territory, meaning that if and when negotiations take place in geneva, he's in a position of strength, not weakness. >> still ahead in the newshour - mauritania votes. polls opened a few hours ago. some are calling it a fraud.
5:16 am
>> plus, we'll report for class. a university built for refugees. >> still ahead in sport - chicago's championship hopes take a dive. what happened to starman derrick rose? >> first to the philippines where people in the devastated city of tacloban have been given a cash incentive to help clear the streets of debris. they are being paid up to $11 to clean up in the aftermath of tacloban. there has been grim findings. as rubble is moved more bodies have been discovered. 5,200 are known to have died in the typhoon. 4 million children have been affected. many of them are living in disaster areas, leaving them vulnerable. we have this report. >> it is rare to see caefar
5:17 am
smiling. he misses his family. his parents and three siblings died when they were swept out to sea. he swam for hours before being rescued. his grandmother is inconsolable. >> translation: it's hard, painful. i should have died, not buy grandchildren. they had their whole lives ahead of them. >> the destruction is unprecedented. 90% of the people here are homeless. as the philippine government focuses on millions of families in need of food, water and shelter the united nations says children are particularly vulnerable. more than 4 million have been directly affected. most are living in disaster zones at the risk of exploitation, abuse and trafficking. aid groups say they must be
5:18 am
given priority, but recovery will not come easy. almost all the schools have been destroyed or used as evacuation centres. aid organizations are setting up learn and play centres. crucial in providing normalcy for millions of children across the philippines. this has been a refuge for some of them. here they are taught songs. a brief break for a harsh life in evacuation centres. many children witnessed the devastation first hand. >> we have to get the basic things - health, nutrition, water - get the schools up and running. children are the future of the philippines. we need to take care of these children so they can be resilient. >> rebuilding a safe environment may take time.
5:19 am
social workers say these are children dealing with grief. they need to be per-septemberive before their childhood is lost too. >> the family of a u.s. carian war veteran is appealing for his release from north korea. merrill newman was pulled from a plane while trying to leave the capital pyongyang. his relatives have not heard from him since. melissa chan has more. >> merrill newman wrote postcards to his family and friends from north korea, and about now family and friends are receiving them. in them are the messages from merrill newman about how wonderful the trip has been and how wonderful the weather has been. he was on the plane, about to complete his trip when the north koreans decided to retain him. newman's wife issued a statement
5:20 am
on friday, asking for his release, saying that this has been a misunderstanding. and that her husband is in need of medication, she is not certain whether the north koreans are providing the medication he needs. merrill newman is not the on american to be held in north korea, there's kenneth bay held at this point, for about a year. >> voting is under way in mauritania's parliamentary elections, the first elections since the military coup. the ruling union is expected to retain power. opposition groups are calling it a fraud. we have this report. >> this is the mauritanian tap call. people enjoyed the last evening of campaigning, singing songs with slogans. behind the carnival air, tensions and tough issues of a
5:21 am
nation hit by poverty and political instability. it's the first elections since the coup that toppled the democratically elected premier in 2008. the leader is in power after winning an election a year later. the opposition never came to terms with the coup. now they decided to boycott the votes, leaving the ruling party in an awkward position >> translation: the position of some opposition parties to boycott the election makes us sat for the republic, we believe they have no valid justifications. >> two important opposition parties accepted the challenge. >> translation: we decided to get over a period of political wrangling, hoping to reach a period of calm and normalcy. the local muslim brotherhood
5:22 am
movement gained popularity. the intention to take part in the poll is not to give legitimacy. our aim is to take the country into a path of freedom, to stop military interventions and let the people choose their representatives. >> easy to say. apart from the political crisis mauritania has a series of problems. it is among the poorest in west africa. it's high literacy rates cast subdivisions and the impact of slavery could be a threat to its stability. so many are waiting to see if elections will bring solutions to the problem. >> kenya's refugee camp is home to half a million. it's home to the first refugee
5:23 am
university. peter greste went to visit the camp as students sat their first exams. >> it's a big day. it's the first of the refugee students sitting exams. a test of whether the idea of a refugee university works. there are four courses so far covering subjects that don't need special laboratories until their campus is built. the lectures and exams take place on weekends in local high schools. >> they are enthusiastic. when they have a diploma in the areas it becomes a door through which they can walk through into - i mean out of the camp. >> this is not a place that most young people want to stay in. refugees have been coming to the
5:24 am
camp for the past 22 years. for most of them football is a pastime, not a career option. unemployment and board 'em are huge problems. the government refuses to bet anyone leave without a special permit. at first the students emerge. out of half a million refugees that live here 90 got scholarships for the 2-year course. in a way the university and students present a challenge to the authorities. they bring an air of performance to a place that the government insisted should only be a temporary shelter for assume refugees. this man is not going anywhere until he has his diploma. he sees his course in nutrition and health as a way to help his family and country.
5:25 am
but there is no academic culture, no institutions to support learning. not even electricity. >> we are finding it difficult. we don't have access to the libraries. or the university campuses. you are only given text notes to read. >> but they stick to the course. they've been trapped since they were four. a diploma may be a ticket out. >> time for the world weather with richard. the weather across north and eastern parts of australia is looking wild at the moment. we have a series of troughs of low pressure, bringing extreme weather conditions. when you see a rainfall like that, 230mm of rain you wonder whether it's a reporting error
5:26 am
or valid. literally we have had more than that, that's a 24 hour record for november in this part of the world. in addition, there has been a report of a tornado affecting nearby parts of new south wales. but we have seen tropical cyclones. i have to tell you our producer is a cricket fan. it is not heading towards the gabba and save the day for england. it's likely to trum ble across the kimberley plateau. the wind is strong, but the rain will be a key feature for this system as it moves eastwards across into arnhem land where it will dissipate. we have heavy rain over the next 24 hours. 150 millimetres. just a chance of a shower down towards the gabba in brisbane. that is merely delaying the inevitable. >> thank you, richard.
5:27 am
a thai skin care company has been forced to apologise over an add for whitening cream. it appeared to offer scholarships for students with fair skin, one of a string of ads in thailand accused of being racist. >> like many young thai women this one does not like the way she looks >> translation: i think i'm dark. >> the 23-year-old wants her skin to be whiter. >> i like people with fair skin and i think thai girls prefer fair skin. people with fair skin have more advantages. >> thailand's skincare industry is worth more than half a billion. one of its biggest lines, lightening products. citra makes whitening creams and locations. it's one of the biggest and held a context. calling for photos of university
5:28 am
students holding a product. it appeared to offer scholarships to students with fair skin. after calls for racism the country apologised for misunderstanding. billboards, tv and fashion models, women are told they need to be lighter and pretty. >> if you look at the social structure with different social classes, women seem to be of darker skin. >> the assumes is the fairer you are, the higher your class. that perception is rooted in a narrow education of history focused on the monarchy. >> we never learnt the history of commoners. in that report, for a common people. it's particularly non-existent in this country. that's why when it comes back to this respect for a different
5:29 am
ethnicity, people of different colour, it was treated as humour. >> in cases like the cop test accusations of racial sensitivities are not understood by all. >> when i saw the add i didn't think anything of it because they are selling to the thai audience. >> some feel companies and ad firstly need to learn a ressage. messages are received well beyond the target market and can take on a different colour. >> still ahead - the clock is ticking on the climate change agreement. coming up - we'll report from warsaw where 11th hour negotiations are taking place. and one - a boxing ledgened aims to bounce back in -- legend aims
5:30 am
to bounce back in a super bout in macawe. details in sport.
5:31 am
>> welcome back, you are watching the newshour on al jazeera. a reminder of the top stories: mass protests under way in northern pakistan, rallying in support of opposition politician imran khan who wants the government to stop u.s. drone strikes >> egypt's military government expelled the turkish ambassador, accused of fuelling instability. the latest blow in diplomatic ties since the two countries.
5:32 am
diplomats are in geneva for another round of talks. talks are in the final phase and russia says they are nearing a breakthrough. >> let's get more on the top story and the u.s. drone attacks. they are nothing new in pakistan. they are well documented on the ground. according for the bureau for investigative journalism the u.s. carried out a total of 379 drone strikes on pakistani territory. they have become more frequent with 86% ordered by barack obama. 3600 have been killed by u.s. drone strikes since beginning a decade ago. among them hundreds of civilians, 400 to 900 in total. a retired pakistani army general
5:33 am
joins us. protests are underway in northern pakistan. many people, especially within nato believe his protests are symbolic. they are likely to have a minimal impact on nato's operation, supply mission. do you think imran khan will and can act on the threat to block the supply route. >> i don't think so. the reason is that there are two routes in pakistan. if this is blocked, the other route, could be operated. at the same time i think this subject does not belong to the province where imran khan's party is in power, but belongs to the federal government. they are totally opposed to the viewpoint. they feel that he is playing cheep politics, and is trying to
5:34 am
panneder to the militant groups. especially the pack stan. >> you say he's playing cheap politics. there's a lot of people against the drone strikes, who think the government of nawaz sharif should do more. how do you explain that. clearly imran khan has the popular support. he's trying to achieve something. >> absolutely. you are right on that score. the point is that, you know, there are two sides to the story. one is that pakistan lost its sovereignty in many areas at the territorial level, if not ideological. and imran khan and his party, and the islamist army do not raise voices against them. because, from these sanctuaries they are operating against the neato forces and operating
5:35 am
against armed forces. pakistan is in a dilemma. unless it is also able to exercise its regain of control over the territory, america will not stop the drone attacks. pakistan is dependent on the u.s. for military and civilian assistance. it becomes problematic to take a position which is not tenable. that is the whole problem. whereas one understand it violates the sovereignty, it should not happen. it's the last thing any pakistani wanted to happen to pakistan. >> how is nawaz sharif likely to address the issue. is imran khan - if he goes ahead to block the supply route, it's the first time a provincial government challenges the policy of the central government in
5:36 am
islamabad. it's likely to have a negative consequence on domestic politics in pack stan. >> and it will bring in confusion. you need clarity at this point in time in pakistan. a lot of sacrifices are made by the military. look at the numbers of officers, servicemen that have died as a result of more than 8,000. more than 20,000 have been targeted by the militants. at this point of time there's confusion and lack of clarity going completely in opposite directions making things difficult at a time when pakistan faces many other challenges. >> one last question for you. do you think nawaz sharif's government is sincere when it says it wants u.s. drone strikes to stop, when we know in the
5:37 am
past the pakistani government and the military tacitly approved the strikes, are they sincere when there's so much at stake for pakistan. if the u.s. support is not there, pakistan will suffer greatly financially, isn't it? >> absolutely. i think nawaz sharif - they want the drone strikes to stop but he's sensible enough to understand why the drones continue. and he also realises the consequences of stopping unilaterally or trying to take measures that offend the u.s. it's not desirable for any point of view. >> thank you for talking to us and sharing your viewpoint. the retired pakistani general joining us from islamabad. >> more on another of our top stories on al jazeera and the talks in geneva.
5:38 am
in the last few minutes the british foreign secretary william hague expressed cautious optimism about the outcome of the talks. >> we are not here because things are necessarily finished. we are here because they are difficult and remain difficult. there are narrow gaps. they are important gaps, it's important that agreements are thorough, that it is detailed, that it is comprehensive and that it is a deal in which we can all - the whole world, can have confidence that it will work and be observed. >> now, international climate talks ran into overtime in warsaw as countries argue over building blocks for a new pact. expectations have been low. let's go live to our correspondent. but first a report from warsaw >> [ chants ] >> a final protest from a
5:39 am
handful of campaigners. they were determined to have their voices heard by those negotiating inside. >> delegates came to the talks with low expectations. here in the final sessions perhaps the expectations have been met there has been soment proes. small steps towards a new agreement. for many, it's not enough. a focus has been to draw up plans to cuts to carbon emissions. it's hoped these can be signed in paris in 2015. the u.s. refused to sign the last agreement. this time they appear to be more willing. >> a few countries are joining the push, including a big economy like the united states. it's not small, but something to build on. >> campaigners walked out of the meeting - their complaint - too little is done by the rich
5:40 am
countries to help the poor countries. the meeting saw $100 million promised and an agreement on tracking by rich countries, it's hoped to give the newly established green fund $100 million by 2020. it's been difficult now to track the promises. >> it deepens miss trust of countries to say, "we have this amount of money therefore we can adapt this far" >> peru hosts next year's talks, a meeting regarded as critical if a new agreement is to be signed by 2015. the environment minister said he'll adopt a new strategy. >> we are open to negotiations. we need to nah scro topics. >> he has his work cut out.
5:41 am
getting basic agreements has taken years. it will take more work to get a new globally binding agreement ready by 015. this will bet the test of how seriously countries the world over are taking the threat of climate change. >> we are joined live from warsaw. it's been a miserable week. i understand some positive news in the last few hours there. >> well, positive in the sense that there has been movement. i'm hearing from inside the stadium and the last sessions that there's a log jam. the president, the polish environment minister who incidentally lost his job during this cop, he was kicked out of the cabinet, bundled together all the different discussion documents. he's bundled them and said, "accept this as a package or
5:42 am
we'll open all these up for discussion." the consequences - we are 18 hours past when it was supposed to finish. they've been at it for two weeks. to open up the documents will be a massive amount of work. to accept them as they stand, a lot of countries feel it will be a disaster. >> are these talks achieving anything? >> there has been small amounts of achievement. one notable one is an agreement to protect tropical forests. >> the u.s. and norway put up $200 million. it was a fund to protect tropical forests. it has to be seen as a positive step. otherwise there has been ak rom owny and we'll see where it leads. the big issue is whether enough has been done to stay on track
5:43 am
towards lima and paris. they are the big dates to see whether the world can come together and sign up to something meaning. robust and that will trees climate warming. >> that was a live report from warsaw, poland. >> you u.n. maritime court has ordered russia to release a vessel. the "arctic sunrise" and its crew were detained. all but one has bail. russia says the hamburg tribunal has no jurisdiction in the case. >> sport next, and australia's batsmen frustate englands bowlers in the first ashes test in brisbane. we'll have the details.

5:49 am
january. >> translation: under no circumstances we should think of improving our game. it is true that those injured are very good players, but it is also true that those who replace them are good players. i don't think barcelona needs to explain certain situations. we have to acknowledge that problems exist and we do have to deal with them. in my case by choosing the best team to play against gren ardo. coach carlos ancelotti is not happy. spain's long distance friendlies are putting a strain on players, he says. they play in ek wattorial guinea. he expects cristiano ronaldo to play, his efforts securing
