the work and this is a major blow to the millions of civilians in the northwest syria specifically and live and live there to live only comes from through multiple border crossing points as a matter of fact we need more and more the crossing point and now the discussion is about limiting that only one specifically are you going to their nation or one person over the line of thinking is in the area which will overwork the health system and the civilians that we live on or the coming from other side of the mill is the oil for food and for nutrition for the children and it's unthinkable. or even the late hour as we

reported the security council resolution failed if all other efforts break down how will this affect people on the ground in syria's north west i'm thinking particularly about the children. immediate effect on children and their being. you know away is what happens once a nation what happens to mr you know that no facilities will be over one responding to go in 19 children are really in need of medicines. if this is material. and we need the resources to provide clean water we need to provide the flesh world assault operation specifically children who will stand with be able to fight the infectious disease and the other. places it with. a lot of water with a lot of basic light some oil ready so this aid comes through the door that is the

9:07 am
shouldn't come as any surprise that it has really been following the stone case i mean stoner was of course convicted of obstruction of justice witness tampering and lying to congress in connection with the investigation and that looked into possible connections between the election campaign of donald trump and the russian government now that is of course something that trump has long maintained was an illegitimate investigation you know he phrased it as a partisan witch hunt and a hoax which is part of the reason he said that stone should never have actually face trial in the united states now that is of course something that a jury of roger stone's peers disagreed with which is why he was sentenced to just over 3 years in prison what's interesting about today's actions from donald trump is actually that he didn't show choose the pardon stone instead he commuted his sentence which means in the eyes of the criminal justice system of america roger stone is still a convicted criminal but by commuting his sentence trump has managed to keep his promise and is keeping him out of jail. until now 25 years ago today serb

a different status of genocide from diffusion is ation to perpetration of actual physical killing still going out but they have seen impossible boston and the region is going beyond that and not it's actually cultural triumphalism but genocide is even justified marc if you nearly all this is not only allowed but also promote is from above. call nationalist elites those in serbia and in part of both terrible because they are especially active in that and this has also penetrated on to ordinary people's lives the songs and jokes about genocide becoming almost the norm rather kind of form of extremism is very boring worrying trend how is how the individual i just want to ask you interesting 10 seconds how do we make sure this doesn't ever happen again. well the
