for consultation. third, the turkish ambassador to cairo be called the egyptian foreign ministry to inform him he is no longer welcome in egypt and be respecte requested to lee country. the turkish government responsible for the deterioration of bilateral relations, which made the steps taken by egypt of the necessary. >> in istanbul with reaction from turkey, but first let's go to cairo, tell us more how we reached this point? >> reporter: in july when former president mohamed morsi was ousted, the turkish prime minister immediately voiced this
10:13 am
disapproval about that in a way that has angered many of those egyptians who had absolutely supported the overthrow of mohamed morsi. since then you've had a series of statements coming out of turkey that were widely publicized in the private or state-run media. for example, one of those examples is prime minister erdogan saying that the supporters of the anti-coup alliance. and early november there was a statement issued by the foreign ministry that mohamed morsi should be released. now they feel they have interfered in domestic affairs and said that turkey was
10:14 am
misrepresenting it's will of the public opinion. and it was the will of the egyptian people and taking sides by allowing meetings of organizations without specifying which organizations they were talking about to happen in turkey. >> hoda, thank you. let's go to turkey. and let's go to anita in istanbul. what did the turkish government allegedly say that the egyptians found so provocative. >> well, they're pointing to something that the prime minister said in a speech he made ahead of a trichotomous coon the 21st of november. now with a look at that speech nothing that we can make out, nothing in the statements that the prime minister has made in the months since the toppling of the morsi government. but have a live and judge for
10:15 am
yourself. >> i applaud president morsi' stand for justice. i respect him. i have no respect for those who have put him on trial. his stand, his statements is a stand of someone who is real companion for freedom. according to me he is worthy of respect. >> well, this is pretty damaging, obviously. it's hard to tell from exactly what he said as you were hinting at, but where is this going, anita? >> reporter: well, we've watched a slow deterioration in turke turkey-egyptian relations since general assisi took over. we've seen the cancellation of trips to gaza. we've seen cancellation of joint military exercises that were supposed to happen between the two countries, and the prime minister has not helped coming out with statements like we consider israel to be behind this coup and we have documents
10:16 am
to prove it, and we've never seen those documents, and other statements, too. it seems to have reached a point where the egyptians feel they can no longer tolerate this and have taken relations to historic lowest point. turkey has matched this, in you like, in a diplomatic tit for tat, down grading diplomat be relations between the two even further. this is something that is making people in the region very concerned. many people are unhappy about the implications of this. >> anita in istanbul. thank you. you're watching the news hour here on al jazeera. lots more to come. not every man's best friend will tackle the problem of street dogs. still to come in sports,

10:19 am
painful. this may be one of the most difficult moments in laug momena history. >> reporter: police will launch an investigation to determine what happened. but that will take time. others turn to prayer, trying to make sense of what happened here. >> reporter: the u.k.'s government said attorney general has pointed the finger at the pakistani community saying politicians need to wake up to growing problems of corruption in public life adding that other minority communities will have problems. in response to the article, dominick reeve felt that his comments were taken out of context it is his duty to look at any corruption.
10:20 am
for more on this, i'm joined by the chairman of the friends of pakistan group. thank you very much for joining us. a warm welcome to the program. first your reaction to his comments. >> it was a rude awakening to see the headlines from a senior man raise the issue of corruption in the pakistani community. there was no explanation given in the first few lines. i had to go through the article to find out what was going on. it made me feel as if they had blanketly covered the whole pakistan city community with this term of corruption. it was only later that i found out that he was referring to electoral fraud. there are investigations going on in previous elections taking place. i don't believe they have sufficient data yet, and for
10:21 am
dominick to make such a profound statement what really worries me is that that's what he believes. if he spoke off the cuff, which he shouldn't, a man of his caliber and status, if he really believes this, then how will the british-pakistani community respond to politics. we all know, less and less people are voting, and we want more young people to get throughout and cast their opinion to the ballot box. this is-- >> let me ask you this. is what he really saying there are localized problems that do exist, and we have seen evidence of these in the past. do you at least agree there are localized problems, and we need to tackle those. >> well, there have been problems in elections in this country since the boroughs. at that time you didn't have large communities here, in this case pakistani as being
10:22 am
mentioned today. i'm sure there are problems across the community. i myself was a victim of, i believe, of corruption, fraud voters. the simple thing in a ballot box in my example went missing. this ballot box was not in control of an ethnic controlled community. this was an officer who had taken a ballot box and returned it an hour and a half later to the city council. again, i do accept that there is issues around election fraud, and the biggest culprit to this particular election fraud are the postal votes. many objected to postal votes. this has not helped to strengthen the voting system. i think it's totally out of order for dominick green to point directly to a particular
10:23 am
community. >> we're going to have to leave it there. thank you very much live. >> reporter: i'll be back in 20 minutes. for now let's take you back to doha and stephen. >> thank you, and airplane manufacturer boeing are warning airlines of icing problems. they're warning 787 dream line linessers flown close to thunderstorms. japan airlines has already pulled the airline from turbulent roots. chris, remember the story of the wrong type of leads that stopped trains from arriving on time. is it the wrong time of rain for these dream liners. >> i'm glad you brought up this question. it's the wrong type of ice, i suppose, that is having an
10:24 am
impact on the dream linessers and the latest version of the boeing jijumbo jets.both of thoe manufactured by general electric. the ice is forming just behind the fan blades and spreading through the engine. if you fly into this stuff, the likelihood is that you're going to suffer an issue with a short thrusrush of thrust. >> this is another pr disaster for boeing. >> it is interesting times for boeing. we've seen the issues that we had throughout the year. first of all, with the issues that happened back in january. then of course we saw the fire at heathrow during the summer. we've had various different
10:25 am
problems over the period of the year with the dreamliner, and this is just one of those issues that boeing don't need at this moment in time. >> nor the passengers. is it dangerous? passengers don't want to know that their plane could be icing up. >> yes, icing up, is it a safety issue? the manufacturer and the manufacturer of the frame and the manufacturer of the engine has put out this warning to airlines, earl several airlinesn abundance of caution have taken steps to make sure that they don't fly this sort of aircraft that the conditions that the manufacturer is saying it shouldn't. when is a fix going to happen? both boeing and general electric are working on that fix at the
10:26 am
moment. they're expected to see a roll out of it. it's a software fix, effectiv effectively, some time in the early part of the year. >> is it likely, if there are these concerns that planes will be grounded or not? >> reporter: i don't think we're going to see a grounding of this airplane unless something major happens. we haven't gotten to that stage. we're not likely to get to that stage. i think all of the various programs are working towards that fix roll out next year, including the federal aviation administration that will have to look at any fix that bow would go come up with. >> thank you. still to come, afghanistan tribal leaders meet in a grand
10:27 am
council loya jirga, regarding u.s. troops. >> and allegations of racism in thailand. more on manny pacquiao, that's next in sport. >> its unbiased, fact-based, in-depth journalism. >> you give them the facts, dispense with the fluff and get straight to the point. >> i'm on the ground every day finding stories that matter to you. >> in new orleans...

10:31 am
afghanistan's president is asking tribal leaders to delay a security pact to the united states until after the april elections. they have gathered for the last day of talks on the agreement. if the group known as the loya jirga agrees to a deal to allow the u.s. troops to stay within afghanistan beyond the 2014 deadline. >> today was the final day for delegates at the jirga to study and debate this bilateral agreement. they're expected to give it publicly to the government of afghanistan. they have told al jazeera that we're likely to see tomorrow, the addition of one line, one clause to the security agreement stipulating that american soldiers must not enter afghan homes, arrest afghans or told afghans in detention centers of
10:32 am
their own. now it has been a political topic over the last few days being debated, and it was addressed by barack obama in a letter to karzai which was handed out to jirga members. they may want to have that inside the security agreement. but beyond the jirga hall and debates, debate had a continued. as delegates were leaving the head of the jirga was extremely angry in response to news recently that afghan president hamid karzai said he would not sign this agreement until after elections next year, if he signs it at all. he was angry and said karzai had no right to make a decision like that, and if he did, it was not made in the interest of afghanistan. now another senior source has
10:33 am
told al jazeera that there may be an away around this. they may able to substitute that with two senior government figures, and that could go com e way of resolving this argument. everyone is waiting for karzai's closing speech tomorrow where he will explain if and why he would delay signing this agreement. >> honduras will hold it's first election four years after a coup. it's been often described as the murder capitol of the year with corruption conditioned human ans abuses. adam rainey has more in hondur honduras. >> reporter: like many hondura hondurans, waiting for justice, he has come to the attorney general's office hoping for an
10:34 am
update on his officer's murder. he is there is more confusion on who is handling his case than answers. emma, a political activist, was killed two years ago in broad daylight and surrounded by witnesses. he supported the party, more of its members have been attacked and killed than all other political parties combined. >> this case has not been investigated at all. supposedly under special agency they have not called us. they have not told us anything. >> reporter: honduras ex-attorney general admitted earlier this year that his office could only investigate 20% of homicide. this is the country with the most murders per capital a former judge said such impunity is a larger problem. a broken justice system. >> we don't have an objective attorney general. we don't have an independent
10:35 am
judiciary. we don't have a national human rights commissioner to carry out these functions. >> reporter: it's not just the lives at risk but the judges themselves. there they've expressed grave concern when they dismissed four judges when they ruled a law unconstitutional. and some are targeted. more than 60 lawyers and judge versus been killed here since 2010. there is little faith in those tasked in protecting the population. this year at least 1400 police officers have been suspended over alleged corruption and ties to organized crime. these problems go back a long time what we're trying to do is get on the right path and avoid more situations of injustice and those who feel scared will have a better tomorrow. but for today the government has deployed a new military police
10:36 am
force to patrol the most dangerous cities. a step human rights activists hearsay could only make matters worse. >> an organization that is above the law, an organization that is heavily armed is acting against the population and against its citizens. >> reporter: a stark warning for those demanding answers and justice from their country. adam raney, al jazeera, hondur honduras. >> international climate talks have slowed in poland. >> reporter: well into overtime these talks being held in poland's national stadium have turned bitter in the closer hours. the president of the meeting tried to bring together all of the discussion documents particularly three main areas of discussion around commitment of rich countries to helping poor
10:37 am
countries into one package. he was calling for a vote on that package. of tha lot have said they are nt willing to vote for it on one package. he said if we don't pass this package now it will be a question of bringing it back into parts and looking at it clause by clause. it meeting has been running for more than two weeks. it's well over time, and the idea of doing that makes not a lot of sense to a lot of these diplomats. so they're in a logjam situation, and it's not clear what will happen in the hours to come, how they're going to free up that logjam. >> well, if those talks end in failure we'll find out later. now is a pay off of $18 million of an executive ever justifiab justifiable? votvoters in switzerland will
10:38 am
decide. >> reporter: a referendum will be held that would cap that at 12 times the lowest paid worker. >> reporter: when banks thrive there are big salaries, too. in switzerland they've got it all and public outrage to match over the excessive of executive pay. on the weekend the socialist party so-called one to 12 campaign will be put to a referendum. at issue where weather the bosses should be prevented to be earning more in a month than their worst paid workers earn in a year. >> we want to change this. we want a fair society, a fair economy. >> reporter: it's an idea familiar, of course, elsewhere since the global financial crisis struck. but here in one of the world's most attractive places to do
10:39 am
business anger took hold earlier this year when one senior executive was paid an astounding $18 million u.s. dollars. the national backlash forced the company concerned to cancel the payout but damage was done to the trust between business and the public. those campaigning for a no-vote see the 1 to 12 idea as a threat to switzerland's free economy. >> the other problem is a certain number of international corporation was leave switzerland's because they would not be able to comply with this law. they would not be able to recruit skilled senior executives. >> reporter: opponents warn if the executive pay fall, so, too, will tax revenue effecting pension and public spending. the over all impact would hurt most. >> it's a good thing we discuss
10:40 am
it because at least it allows people to express their concerns. and it allows the top, the elite, if you want, of the business community to understand why the people are concerned, and to make sure that you don't break this relationship we have here in switzerland. >> reporter: beyond sunday's referendum there are votes to come on a minimum wage and a tax rise for wealthy foreigners. significant questions in a country p that prizes its reputation for being business friendly. >> thousands of people have been protesting in spain against the government's measurements and security laws which make it illegal to assault a police officer or hold an unauthorized demonstration. now they may be man's best friends, but in romania stray dogs are a serious problem.

65,000 strays live on the streets of bucharest and attacks are common. but a new plan to cut their numbers have infuriated campaigners. and a word of warning, you may find some of the pictures in this report disturbing. >> reporter: he does not let sleeping dogs lie. every day the dog catchers are out netting strays. this woman rescued her dog just in time. another tries to set them free. it's only a little one, she says. many residents disapprove and argue with the catchers, but the city is determined to step up its efforts. it's doubled it's catching capacity and ultimately aims to raise it to 250 dog as day. >> the program has already been affected. dog attacks are down by 42%, and the definition of success for us would be to reduce the stray dog
10:42 am
population by 80%. it's all in reaction to the outcry that followed the fatal morning of a four-year-old in a playground last september allegedly at the jaws of stray dogs. >> reporter: dog attacks have caused five deaths in the last three years. but that's only the tip of the iceberg. people have been bitten by stray dogs. >> the dogs end up here at the city pound. this woman claimed a stray she has been caring for since 2005. city officials say they're only capturing as many as they can rehome but by the end of the year they'll butt these animals to death two weeks after they're caught if they haven't been adopted. animal rights groups say that has been tried before and failed. the city culled 140,000 dog during the previous decade deca.
10:43 am
>> our solution is to have a very good powerful sterilization program and adoption program. this is the only solution to reduce and to control the number of the stray. kill something not a solution. the stray on the streets will breed again. so we'll have more and more dogs again on the streets. >> public opinion presently wants government to take action to keep children safe so the death penalty is implementing a sterilization and release program. >> that's it. you're up-to-date with the news from europe. let's take you now to doha and stephen. >> many thanks. lots more to come. the tail of the tu tuk that is traveling the world to help
