spain hands tough prison sentences to cattle and separatist leaders for holding a band independence referendum the former head of the cattle and government calls the sentences an atrocity. and poland's ruling conservatives secure a huge electoral victory the law and justice party is set to increase its majority after implementing reforms its critics call anti democratic plus crunch time yet again on brags that. it's going to be a voice you mustn't think. e.u. citizens working in the u.k. many of them in the food industry say they are worried about deportation as the country faces war breadstick deadlines. i'm sorry kelly walk into the program turkish back forces are continuing their push
2:02 pm
in to syria as fighting continues along a 200 kilometer stretch in the north of the country now in just the past few hours the turkey backed free syrian army is reported to have taken the city of tell about fighters there have been removing flags of kurdish backed troops in the area to raise their own flags it's part of a coordinated push directed by the turkish government after american forces started to withdraw from the region. and there to one has indicated that turkish troops are also ready to launch an assault on the syrian city of mandates which is held in the west of the country now syrian kurds in this area. turkish media reporting that the country's forces were preparing for an operation on man beds and were put this in at the city's edge having pushed into the area in the last 24 hours
2:03 pm
a complete us now from our correspondents. standing by in luxembourg at the meeting of e.u. foreign ministers and during jones is joining us from istanbul welcome to both of you and henri that like to begin with you what did everyone wanted to meet with a potential attack here now on man bit. well for prisoners one that has been a target an objective for well over a year among beaches and extremely important tiles it's a major hub of communication top sitting on a main highway connecting syria with iraq and beyond that it is the gateway to syria 2nd city of aleppo and the present heard one has saying that he had to deal with the united states that they would promise the withdrawal of syrian kurdish militia if they took it more than a year ago they said america rene so much and now he's saying that we determine now to take the city i return it's what he says is its rightful owners and that is reference to the syrian free syrian army forces which have been fighting with damascus regime and now allied with turkey the key question here will be will
2:04 pm
damascus be happy with the handing over of such an important city to rebels that are currently still fighting the regime so a potential flashpoint is looming it seemed and that's how far you countries are willing to go to to stop this offensive that we've heard about because i mean we already have a number of countries halting the the export of weapons to turkey if it were up to some countries for example. economic sanctions here or the very least an e.u. wide embargo as you know as of now we have embargoes weapons embargoes of sometimes reasons but not the whole of the european union but as things stand at the moment it appears that you foreign ministers here are struggling for wording to condemn what is happening in northern syria and that is because some countries are very concerned that the turkey's e.u. migrant deal that is keeping many migrants out of the european union because turkey
2:05 pm
helping might blow up in their faces and that they would face even more migration coming into the european union and as you know that topic political dynamite for the european union. dorian what has changed for everyone now that the kurds have reached an agreement with the syrian government. will they do that really potential game changer that the syrian kurds have now reached out to the damascus forces and they are believed to be currently trying to secure syria's northern border with turkey now that brings a prospect of a potential clash between turkish and syrian regime forces a major escalation in the syrian civil war with repercussions all across the region and the key flashpoints are believed to be the beach which both sides now are laying claim to and also the kurdish controlled town of karbala in the on turkey's bolder president one has said that his forces were along with the syrian rebels
2:06 pm
will be the thing that parents the same time we understand syrian regime forces are rushing to that town to secure it so potential looming confrontations here and at the center all of it is moscow moscow is back in the syrian regime at the same time it has good relations with turkey it will need to find some balancing act to avoid this potential clash with 2 important allies and masters walk us through how the e.u. is reacting now that we have this word of. kurdish forces especially reaching this agreement with damascus. you know some poor ministers here have acknowledged that the e.u. basically is watching helplessly because it does have economic clout but it doesn't have the military muscle really to change things as they stand right now in northern syria but of course the e.u. itself has 2 major concerns when it comes to the region the 1st one i touched upon in my 1st answer it's more migration like political dynamite but the 2nd one is also what happens to the foreign fighters apparently the captors of the u.s. have already been released or fled the will they come back will your place another
2:07 pm
terror wave as we did in the past years these are all things that need to be discussed here in luxembourg but like i said we don't expect anything more than a strong condemnation if at all of what's happening with turkey in northern syria but you know turkey for its part is really talking talking tough and dorian i'd like to ask you about this turkish threat to dishonor the agreement with the e.u. over migration. house syria. is that right indeed what i mean potentially it is very serious you have to recall way back in 2015 nearly a 1000000 refugees from turkey crossed. into the greek islands in greece and overwhelmed not only greece but the rest of europe and i think it's in the back of their minds that turkey can do that again it's another one is reiterating this right again and again but it has to be said they were kept to it because in 2015 the route from greece to the rest of europe in germany in countries like the u.k.
2:08 pm
and france was open now that routed the thank you very close to a lot of skeptics here whether the refugees in turkey would flock in so many numbers to greet when they realize the situation in greece is nearly as bad if it's in turkey so people to suspect that this is an empty bluff. by turkey many in your may not be ready to think the terms story and jones with a view from turkey and max both men with a view from the e.u. thank you so much to both of you. well while the fighting is for now affecting mostly northern syria it's also spilling over into turkey our correspondent hughley han has this report on turkish towns that have been hit by the shelling. in the turkish border town of such a public outpouring of grief. for the women mourn the death of their village chief he and 2 other men were killed in a mortar shelling an apparent reprisal attack from across the border in syria.
2:09 pm
was. we want this war to stop nobody should die no soldiers no civilians we just want peace we have of course we're scared we're scared for the whole country for turks for kurds for everyone no one should be killed you son 100. percent killed the other people show us where the weak tims died. within a radius of 20 meters traces of bomb fragments. sounds windows walls vehicles battered by shrapnel. and. i don't think it came from the outside maybe from over there i don't know but this is from a bomb. similar stories can be heard in many turkish border towns. if
2:10 pm
people believe the war is just across the border in syria they know better now. still the mayor of supports the turkish offensive he claims the army is fighting for a good cause. here in the uk to carlow we are hosting 125000 syrians you might be able to imagine how difficult that is we want a safe zone to resettle the 3500000 refugees that have become a burden for turkey over the past 8 now half years but europe occasionally sends a little money but we pay the real price syrians should go back to their homes. the area northeast syria that is supposed to become a safe zone is anything but. for days the turkish army and allied syrian opposition fighters have clashed with kurdish militia and while they are busy fighting each other there are concerns that isis jihadists which are already defeated in the area
2:11 pm
might be able to regroup. international criticism of the turkish military campaign is growing the united nations say the offensive has caused more than 100000 civilians to flee but the consequences have also been dramatic on this side of the border in turkey and many people we've talked to here are hoping that the violence won't continue to escalate but this includes people inside roach who are grieving over the death of their village chief. and pray that the turkish military operation will and before they have to bury more of their loved ones. were murdered. with a check now of some other stories making news around the world wading through media waters emergency responders are searching for missing people after typhoon haiyan this hit japan over the weekend. the super typhoon was already has already claimed

2:13 pm
a group of separatist leaders who organized the vote to declare spain's northeastern catalonia region as an independent state referendum passed with a majority vote but the central spanish government deemed it illegal in spain journalist and bergen who in fact joining us from barcelona so what's been the reaction to this verdict i think the reaction of most people is a poor although fewer than half the population support independence right from the start when these politicians and. leaders say such incredibly intricate charges people felt that it was excessive where we're dealing with and over there were rumors sensors were being lies or in fact sense as a very visceral sense of just merrier and shock even when it was exactly like that here well the thing was that they were the 1st
2:14 pm
3 different charges one was rebellion which is almost as bad as prison officials and the misuse of public funds well they've been found guilty on the 2nd 2 and the thought was as they were dropping the charges were more serious. they said the larger part has happened is they've applied for more or less the marks on them some houses for the other charges so you know we're here between 9 and 13 years. for. basically for offenses that most people think these people should have been banned from politics and hard. not actually since prison. so i mean surely these verdicts are going to have major implications for the separatist movement itself where does it go from here. with it's difficult to say i think we go in for a day and perhaps several days of process of various times but the point is that
2:15 pm
the separatist movement has managed to mount a massive campaign over several years gained a lot of attention for its course but the fact of the matter is that it's failed it hasn't gone anywhere near independence seen a whole generation of its leaders now from holding public office and there's no clear way forward even bargain in barcelona thank you. it's to poland's now where the country's ruling conservatives have secured a base election when the lawn justice party is projected to have enough seats in parliament to govern alone with nearly all votes counted from sunday's ballot the right wing party has backed judicial and media reforms that true criticism from brussels for eroding the role of law. and order by busybodies for another term in power for poland's conservative nationalist nor and justice party who we oppose it . was said that me well that struggle started we had 4
2:16 pm
years of hard work ahead of us i. vote for it because poland must continue to evolve and improve upset. with him apart so we must maintain our credibility which you must ensure that no one who poland has any doubt about what we are doing is good genuine and responsive . their social welfare programs anti immigrant policies and social conservatism a popular with many polish people but the biggest opposition bloc says that divisive. people want cooperation they want us to show that we are able to overcome the splits that are in our country people don't want poland to be divided into parts people don't want their hearts broken because poles are not able to understand each other we are the ones who are promoting cooperation meet the
2:17 pm
smaller parties also made against it's a left wing coalition is back in parliament and the far right exceeded poland's national voting fresh hold and will also get seats. was but the big winners of the lauren justice party during the campaign they promised to raise the minimum wage and not to grant rights to gay people it's this and judicial reforms that have drawn. new criticism it says the party is weakening the rule of law and undermining poland's democracy. you're watching news still to come on the program we visit the coal miners of kentucky fighting for their compensation for their diseased lungs. but 1st the u.k. government has reaffirmed its commitment to delivering brags that by october 31st in the queen's speech delivered a short while ago the government laid out its priorities including the aim of
