1:03 pm
also launched an offensive shelling the last defense strongholds of i sell those defenses collapsed about two hours ago and now the syrian army has managed to into the last two neighborhoods that were under the control of i said however there are still thousands of people trapped in those areas that we've seen some. statements from activists in there saying that many people would like to leave the area they concerned about retrieve you acts of retribution from the syrian army this is a fire that came at a price for everyone senior syrian army commanders were killed in the fighting hundreds of people were killed in the strikes and also isis suffered major setbacks particularly in the for the syrian government this is quite an achievement there is now under their control ok. with the latest on what is happening and doors or let's
1:04 pm
cross now to stephanie tucker who is live in the hope province where i saw has in the process a big pushed out stephanie what's happening there. well much further south from we are west unbar is where the iraqi forces the federal police together with sunni tribal fighters also the has entered the town of all calm now why is it significant two reasons really one it is the all sort of territorial area that eisel still controls in this country in iraq and to it is the last border crossing that i still hold and of course you'll remember you know the big propaganda machine i saw showed us those pictures when it bulldoze down borders two thousand and fourteen between iraq and syria saying that they were establishing their so-called stable this is now the very last border crossing that they hold the iraqi forces are making advances there is fighting inside all climb town and also you were just speaking to my caller. today was or the syrian army intends to go to that is the syrian side of
1:05 pm
the border so certainly in terms of territory it seems that the group's days are numbered all right stephanie decker live for us to hook northern iraq thank you so in the past year and a half i suppose control over land and resources and in syria iraq has been steadily declining but the the fall is been pretty drastic recently so let's look at this map from june of this year eisele was still controlling vast swaths of territory marked in gray cities like rock of mosul indoors or worse still under its control now fast forward to now it's lost all these major cities including rocca the self declared capital of its so-called caliphate and now indoors or in an oil rich region which was crucial for the group's finances a change to haiti is a senior lecturer in middle east politics of bradford university he joins us now via skype from leeds so let's talk about this significance of doris or what what is it about besides the fact that it's the the last place it's almost you know
1:06 pm
the final straw here but what's the significance of doris or. as a city has a lot of symbolic and geo cities significance for the regime of bashar assad. as a city is considered as the largest urban center in in beeston syria and the province of tires or obviously has a relatively large border a long border with iraq and that potentially can make it sufficiently very wonderful so if bashar assad could maintain some control a reasonable control all of this process all of this province and in particular kind of the border areas different areas then he can claim that effectively he has managed to recapture eastern syria and also you have to remember the fact that the
1:07 pm
resort has the province played a billy important and defining role in the financial and economic life of the so-called islamic state bonzo is the main center for oil production in the country so when we're talking about kind of the do city significance we're not only talking about basically to look asian dark also some other aspects which are extremely important including oil is this is there a way that the s.d.f. are try to capitalize on this anyway. yes i mean as you know as we talk there is now a competition going on between the syrian military and the syrian democratic forces all the condo capturing at least bed so tired was all
1:08 pm
because of its a geo political and juicy. significance despite the fact that the city of daraa story is now completely under the control of assad and his allies but again he's not all as we speak the syrian military and allies are basically moving towards come on she's considered as the beery last count of capital the fact of the capital the so-called islamic state in syria and the syrian democratic forces since september have been also trying to. broaden their spears of influence in this a very specific share province and a lot of people as you know you know in the near future we may actually see some confrontation between bashar assad and this here although this year has said that time and time again the not interested to kind of have any confrontation with
1:09 pm
russia or assad and his allies and they want to primarily focus on isis i shan't. and al qaeda nonetheless if they both focus on this very specific and limited qana area and the region it seems that maybe a confrontation may be on. that see what happened within the next few days so i saw as we as i said as clearly. kind of in a box they've lost a significant amount of territory how does that how does that translate to losing influence if it all of his territory employees aren't necessarily the same thing. it is absolutely not the same thing remember what happened in afghanistan in two thousand and one this state of taliban which at least to a degree resemble the caliphate that was it was a surplus body slamming state clubs in the matter of a few weeks when the americans invaded afghanistan since then the americans have
1:10 pm
spent at least two dollars in order to support the central government in afghanistan nonetheless over the last sixteen years taliban managed to maintain a parallel power structures shadow government shut to a state in afghanistan despite the fact that they don't control a great deal of territory but they manage to maintain their influence and i think we'll be talking about people as we need to wait and see what happens when the conflict compliant i think defeat to quiet is not going to be decided by these conflicts the fate of quiet is going to be decided why did reconstruction process is going to be decided why did we reach these kind of course always his administration is going to come and deliver social services and provide security and if they fail to deliver an effective reconstruction program if they feel to
1:11 pm
deliver and have picked a kind of security mechanism one unfortunately almost inevitable to see them you know returning and kind of broadening their influence and control in a lot of areas in the country thank you very much for joining us i change the hay thank you very much the lawyer the deposed president says his client will appeal any belgian approval extradition to spain a spanish just deciding whether to issue an international arrest warrant for carlos pushed him out on friday he missed a summons to a spanish court on thursday because he is in belgium seeking freedom and safety as he has described at the post. later in a sacked cabinet are being investigated for sedition following last month's declaration of independence now eight of which two months former cabinet members have been jailed and another was being detained and madrid they attended thursday's high court hearing that missed they the deposed leader says their detention is an attack on democracy. you can look at them the spanish government decision to
1:12 pm
imprison the cabinet members of the legitimate government of catalonia is a very grave mistake it is a great attack on democracy and imprisoning political leaders who have ample citizen support is an act that violates the basic principles of democracy so we're covering the story from all angles hotel maid isn't mature it andrew simmons is in the callan capital barcelona first let's go to david chaytor and brussels so david the question is these international warrants arrest warrants for me and how does this procedure actually work. the european arrest warrant is a procedure that was adopted just after the nine eleven attacks in the united states and is supposed to actually make it a much easier process for extradition between the twenty eight members of the european union are been talking this morning to the belgian federal prosecutor's office to discuss exactly how this will be carried out they say that the arrest
1:13 pm
warrant when it is issued will come to them either by email or by fax is not going to be posted and they then have twenty four hours to look at the the paperwork itself to check that all of that is correct under the laws governing the european arrest warrant and then they have fifteen days to get hold of those named in the arrest warrants the police would then look for those individuals they would be technically a fugitive so that stage twenty four hours a century after this arrest warrant is received by the federal prosecutor's office here in belgium now there are several ways that the catalonian deposed president and his cabinet members for cabinet members can then tackle a situation they have another fifteen days if they start an appeal and that appeal can come on several grounds one if they're human rights are going to be abused too if there's a question about how fair the trial actually be and also if they are being
1:14 pm
discriminated against politically now if you look at all of those three aspects they are particularly strong cases perhaps for an asylum request and he has with him and his ministers the advice of a particularly experienced asylum lawyer will pull back hard he is dealt in twenty ten here with the leader of the the the basque separatists and so he knows his job you know is a very very well but according to the. the european arrest warrant guidance you have to return somebody who sees the arrest warrant has been issued within sixty days but this is a decision not for the belgian government it's a decision for the belgian court but i must add one thing first of all that the lawyer has actually said that to. has said that he will cooperate with the belgian authorities so it will be a case of
1:15 pm
a car chase him hiding him being a fugitive he said he will cooperate as soon as that arrest warrant is served and appears in the federal prosecutor's office here ok david chaytor live for us and brussels let's go to madrid which is. kind of ground zero for this with hotel maid in the sense that this is where the arrests are actually happening so. some people have already been arrested and been released is that correct. nine former cabinet members. government has been released this morning on bail. have been detained pending investigation without bail now they have been very interesting to several different prisons all in the same facilities now we're waiting today for this european arrest warrant issued from the judges inside this building the national. technically on had.
1:16 pm
friday here. so technically we think the judge will be waiting until a bit later in the day before issuing a warrant. ok. let's go to anderson it's now in the catalog. where all of this started and it's gotten so far now so what is the latest there and. exactly a week since the declaration of secession was made and what an extraordinary week that's been we're now seeing a change in tactics from the protesters and warm striking change here in. the seat of the. government over here on the other side of the square the city council building you see there a banner which says freedom for political prisoners that's
1:17 pm
a slogan. you can hear all over catalonia now on thursday night some pounds crashing against balcony. or way across barcelona. demonstrations thousands. of the dissolved parliament people saying that they will continue they will they vowed to stay with this protest it has to be said there is really oxygen there's been a. to this whole pain. the jailing action of the spanish court has definitely had a profound effect on the view of the ordinary street protests and we're also seeing some forms of civil disobedience with some roads cut off that was more spontaneous but in the main it's organized action phased organized action which will according to organizers be long term aimed at the elections on december twenty first when so
1:18 pm
many people are now predicting that the could be a turn despite the fact that the political leadership is in jail there could be a turn towards even more people backing independence this could be found on the spanish government but it remains to be seen and that's a long way ahead and there are so many twists and turns with this crisis ok. for us in barcelona plenty more ahead in the news hour including the u.s. secretary of state prepares to visit me in mar on has agenda talks on the hendra crisis and hundreds of journalists have been killed while doing their jobs we take you to the most dangerous place in the world to be a reporter and in sport a french footballer sent off after kicking a supporter in the head peter we'll have the details.
1:19 pm
america's top diplomat will visit me in march and discuss the crisis secretary of state rex tillerson is expected to meet later on november fifteenth pressure is mounting on the white house to impose measures against myanmar government and the u.s. senate a bipartisan group has introduced a bill which would restrict military operation until the violence stops the u.n. refugee chief has rounded on the organization for failing to stop conflicts that have displaced nearly sixty six million people worldwide. told the u.n. security council that countries are focused on their short term and long term collective stability. have we become unable to broker peace i ask this question here in the security council who is a result of their peace and security because i see the direct impact of these failures every day on the lives of tens of millions of people forced to abandon
1:20 pm
their homes with green prospects of being able to return sometimes for generations when i meet refugees their first question is not about food or shelter but about peace and security because it is security and peace that will convince them to return home also criticize those countries that have closed their borders to refugees and weaknesses in international solidarity are also eroding protection for those who flee many refugee hosting states particularly those neighboring conflict zones keep their borders open and generously host thousand sometimes millions of refugees but certain states often those least impacted by refugee flows and often wealthy ones have closed borders restricting access to asylum and deterring entry landmines and unexploded bombs are still being
1:21 pm
discovered in residential and farming areas of south sudan the weapons are largely from south sudan's war with sudan and that it is back in two thousand and five but with the country now in its own civil war there are more threats even more going to ports and the capital juba all has been hoping to do was dig the soil for farming to sustain himself instead my thing ago says he found something else not far from his house. i mean it in a million and. i started forming this year and while i was digging i fell in the land mine i reported to the chief of the village and they took it without incident i continue with digging and again fell into another learn more in the land mines are just some of the more than thirty one thousand anti-personnel mines discovered in south sudan since two thousand and five they were planted during the country's twenty one year civil war when it was still part of sudan a conflict that has left many areas with land mines and other unexploded ordinances
1:22 pm
more than one thousand three hundred deaths have been recorded as a result and more than three thousand five hundred people have been injured whilst in a rope is one of them. i lost my arm and like in a landmine accident my colleague died in the same incident now i tell people that landmines are deadly and that if they find one they should stay away from it but many areas still haven't been checked for landmines and other bombs it's not uncommon to find land mines in areas where people are living over the past few years and the population's been on the move to escape hunger and violence to include areas increasing the risk of stepping on landmines or unexploded devices but these devices from the previous civil war are not the only threats facing people here for the past four years south sudan has been going through a war that is bound to leave one of the dangerous legacy the legacy of this for is is a kind of a prayer for ration a bomb exploded ordinance that is dangerous. to have
1:23 pm
a comes across and handles it and it's spread across a wide area and it will take time to clear. here is rather than weeks or months. martin said he was lucky that he found the landmine before it exploded but says he hopes whoever finds the next mine also has his luck and survives he will morgan al-jazeera juba. venezuelan president nicholas mentor s.s.a. plans to renegotiate all future foreign debt payments with banks and investors that's in response to financial sanctions imposed by the trumpet ministration country a something to a deep recession following the collapse in oil prices and it spent struggling to deal with shortages of basic products like food and medicine and tell you more as a latin america analyst he says venezuela defaulting on its debts is inevitable. but it hasn't paid those eight hundred million dollars that have already come due and tonight it owes a principal payment of at least the of it as well company owes
1:24 pm
a personal payment of one point one billion dollars and so technically that as well we're going to fall by midnight tonight all the girls said that the paper was going to be made tomorrow it is so how to put it simply it's this is the day of reckoning that everyone knew was going to come but as well it simply does not have enough money to pay for and this has very little to do with the american sanctions that's what mcgrew would want people to think the reality is that under thomas is just us or in them a group the venezuelan government has indebted itself. astonishingly most of that money has been robbed by the government itself there are norms public works projects that were financed into the billions of dollars in venezuela what know where that money went into the pockets of the government so that is a government that has indebted itself terribly and would have been in in bad shape anyway and then have the oil prices fall which made things even worse so this is a disaster that was long in coming throughout the past decade more than eight
1:25 pm
hundred journalists have been killed while doing their jobs here the cases have ever been solved and in mexico two thousand and seventeen is set to be a record year for the number of journalists murdered john heilemann reports. eleven killed so far this year just for doing their jobs because one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists among them about there is a middle slava breach internationally renowned reporters who investigated government corruption and organized crime now they're gone but it's not just that there that's worrying press freedom groups it's what comes after after half year was worth it even in these two high profile cases months later still no one's been arrested one of the main consequences of the impunity is that journalists start censoring themselves they stop reporting on organized crime to stop reporting on corruption and as a result the entire areas in mexico basically have no serious journalistic coverage or if the gate of journalism going on. free speech groups estimate that ninety nine
1:26 pm
point seven percent of verbal or physical attacks against journalists go on punished in mexico. ricardo sanchez is the special prosecutor for crimes against free speech in the last six years it's only been three convictions what's going on . this is a very complicated issue the federal government and attorney general's office know we face a big challenge in beating the impunity. we created a group to execute arrest warrants with the federal police and get people before a judge so we're doing important work i recognize we've got a long way to go we're working hard with the state governments. cinna lowest day in the great crime is one of the most dangerous for reporters. martin didn't fled after getting threats it still bothers him that the articles he and other journalists risk their lives for make little impact in an often openly corrupt
1:27 pm
society. i think sometimes it's kind of a suicidal calling you wonder why should we run these stories because we know things aren't going to change. martin and around. five hundred other journalists are in a government protection program that free speech groups say authorities themselves are actually responsible for the majority of attacks on the press and that really doesn't bode well as we head into what's going to be a fiercely full election season if politicians are willing to use violence against journalists and if there are virtually no consequences for doing so that spells bad news for the more chrissy john home and how does it mexico city. and a few moments we will have the weather with everton but still ahead on al-jazeera what happens when video games take over your life and how some people in the last are seeking help for this newly recognized addiction and sport how police are preparing for sunday's new york marathon after this week's attack in manhattan.

1:32 pm
taking a fresh approach who is in london as part of a visit to commemorate. britain's cabinet it marked a turning point in the effort to found israel army phillips reports. his invitation to downing street this day to israelis an affirmation of friendship to palestinians an insult to reason may says that britain is proud of its support for israel. at a lecture in london organized by the british jewish community a leading historian says the balfour declaration should be celebrated as a lead to the birth of a great country for all its problems and troubles for the. liberal zionists like me ardently wish were not in the act for all the demolition. and terrorist atrocities on the other side. further and further out of reach israel still.
1:33 pm
breathing debate thriving rejoicing democracy on the streets of ramallah very different sentiments. to many palestinians even britain itself are synonymous with treachery it period and broken promises the man the country that set in motion a century of oppression. not all british politicians are believe yes to that but another london gathering the main opposition party says the government's policy towards israel and palestine must change. the opposition labor party's emily thornberry said there's no better time than now for the british government to recognise the state of palestine she said that the labor party if elected is ready to take that step the british government is not about to apologize for the ballot. declaration no matter what the palestinian authority would like
1:34 pm
a british government minister said this centenary is being marked with pride and respect but also a degree of sadness sadness because as the british acknowledge when it comes to israel and palestine so much is still unresolved the israeli and british prime ministers spent the evening at a dinner to mark lord balfour declaration but the british are careful with their language because as rival demonstrations suggest there is too much division and anger for britain to truly celebrate this and. to be philip's al-jazeera lancaster house in central london. more on this let's talk to amar palestine's integrity foreign minister for multilateral affairs who joins us now from ramallah and we appreciate your time very much would an apology from britain make any difference yes it would but it needs to be also followed by several steps including trying to
1:35 pm
rectify what has been done thus far to the palestinian people first of all the political aspirations of the palestinian people including in the statehood needs to be the first to come secondly britain needs to also recognize the injustice of the collaboration and the policies that followed by the british empire in palestine. so. when there are such vastly different views of the effects of the balfour declaration such vastly different views and camps on this one is there any way to get from that to actually having any type of initiative for peace as benjamin netanyahu says when when the gap is so vast. well first of all the nations of the for peace has been open for the past twenty years but israel has chosen only one path colonialism and expansion at the expense
1:36 pm
of the future of peace and the expense of the two state solution that has been present and netanyahu cannot blow says his actions and that of his governments and the colonial settlements in palestine including the subjugation of the palestinian people for over fifty years of occupation with these words in terms of the diverse in views we think that the whole world has moved far away from colonialism and has has put an end to that chapter. celebrating colonialism or joy joy seeing colonialism or call a colonial past is not the way to go it should be something that is unfit for the current century that we live it is unfit of the british place and responsibilities under the u.n. charter and as a member of the security council as
1:37 pm
a permanent member of the security council it's on foot of the so many international obligation that the u.k. has signed up to ok so it's a stated and declared position in relation to the two state solution so i hear what you're saying that you're saying that you know quanell lesson is something that much of the world is try to move past but does there still need to be some sort of acknowledgement or reckoning if you will to truly move forward. well the palestinian has made the start of cool concession to truly move forward and we made each and every effort to bring our people to terms to accepting a state of that on only twenty two percent of us started called by this time and return countries that are even promoting this peace initiative still refuse to recognize the second party to this whole. episode where that is the palestinian
1:38 pm
people and their right to statehood and independence they refused to take the steps required to bring israel into compliance with international law and with its obligations towards peace they still refuse to recognize that the palestinian people has suffered and justice for the past one hundred years because of the colonial and racist policy that's the problem the problem starts with that and we need to change the mentality in order to reach a level what peace can be achieved if the mentality continues to be racism and colonialism then we are going nowhere. thank you very much. gerson hong kong have failed to reach a verdict in a bribery case involving the former leader saying a judge dismissed the jury after they were unable to provide a verdict saying this accused of accepting free renovation for a penthouse in return becoming favorably disposed to a local radio station prosecutors said the former top official accepted home
