5:05 pm
working overtime to avoid a confrontation because he strongly backs of damascus regime but the same time it developed very close relationship with the turkish president of egypt type one who he sees as key to bringing an end to the syrian conflict given the support of rebel groups so putin is now trying to avoid the night mess. of a clash between these 2 crucial allies and we understand at the moment is that there are russian military police in between the regime syrian regime forces and turkish forces. doron jared's in istanbul thank you. malnutrition remain serious issues in more than 50 countries the new global hunger index are published today tells us that the number of malnourished people in the world increased from 785000004 years ago to 822000000 last year the situation in the central african republic is among the most alarming lack of

5:11 pm
directing monkey chants at england plays a leading both garish prime minister to demand a hail of resignation despite the abuse on the 2 stoppages cost england 16 no. maryl from back to excuse me max merrill from d w sport can tell us will welcome max so garia has got rid of. the head of its football association what is your ups european football's governing body u.a.e. for doing well nothing as of yet they are still evaluating the referee's match report that's being done by the disciplinary committee and you a few in the past have issued fairly weak punishments in incidents like these in fact going into this match bulgaria already had received a punishment for previous racist behavior from fans in games against kosovo and the czech republic 5000 seats were basically not be able to be. sold by vogue area
5:12 pm
didn't really impact them at all because the stadium was half empty and this is quite systematic with this is quite common for us as punishment to be in my opinion very very weak and not strong enough and as you said the prime minister boyko boras of aust the foot will association president bill gary had to resign he initially declined and now says he will resign on friday when the f.a.'s executive committee meets in bulgaria and antidiscrimination organizations across the board asking for tougher punishments for instance like these and we can hear from the english phase chairman greg clarke. what a disappointing night i mean it's probably one of the most appalling notes i've seen in football game is fairly decent people and decent football fans and a few people have embarrassed the country and i would not try to take the moral high ground because we're still fighting racism in our country but i do think you a for have to take time to collect all the facts and then decide how to act
5:13 pm
appropriately. so that's why i was in the match called off well it could have been very nearly was all gary obviously have previous when it comes to this sort of thing and if the head of the match england had said they would walk off in the case of rice's behavior so you wait for introduce the 3 point protocol saying after 3 stoppages the match is cancelled and there was a 1st stoppage early in the 1st half a number of england players approached the referee after they heard chance and then the 2nd stoppage shortly before half time occurred and players were asked if they would like to temporarily go off the pitch they said no they wanted to finish the half at half time quite a few bulgarian fans were seen leaving the stadium and had england all the referee stopped the match a 3rd time it would have been an automatic 3 nil result now as it was a wind won by a higher margin and the england coach was full of praise for the defiance showed by his play as the bulgaria coach on the other hand we can hear from he sort of
5:14 pm
refused to concede that racism had taken place that image when he speaks of course this is an extremely important topic not only for poker area but for england and for all nations. like i am for strong punishments if such a thing exists but it also has to be proved if it is not proved then it is just speculation. so max merrill and given that the coach is reluctance to see what was under his nose one has to ask how much of a problem racism in bulgaria and football that is and indeed in the sports the whole yeah i spoke to journalists who were at the game they very clearly heard the chants and saw the salutes as swastikas and nazi paraphernalia are quite common in bulgarian football and eastern european football as a whole but it isn't just a regional issue this is a worldwide issue in fact in england itself english players have been abused in their own country on social media for instance very recently the bottom line is the
5:15 pm
have to be harsher punishments you wife it isn't doing enough it clearly isn't working and people are going to be eagerly awaiting what you waited does hear people calling for bulgaria's be kicked out of the qualification smell from t w sport. voting is underway and actions are being held for a new president in parliament is being seen as important test of a cease fire signed in august between the government and opposition rebels they don't use other increased reports from the capital. the queues have been long since morning. where 13000000 registered voters are expected to cast their vote today in a very tight election because mozambique is still one of the poorest countries in the region almost every 2nd person here lives in poverty and therefore there are high expectations for the next government spending and of course. i hope everything will get better. we need more schools they should invest more in
5:16 pm
education to reduce poverty. there is a lot of corruption and. i wish our country could be more developed. this in mind was a because still recovering from 16 years of civil war a fight between the socialist truly more and the anti communist. since 1902 but it's a very fragile one just in august peace agreement was high and between both sides but this was already the 3rd peace agreement at once again it's a very fragile one because some of the rain still refusing to give away their weapons yet to the former rebel group is now the biggest opposition party and the biggest threats to president felipe when you see his party the free leader who has been running the country since independence and during the current term was plagued by several corruption scandals this is why many people expect
