less than two years ago. less than a thousand people have been killed, in recent fighting with government forces in south sudan. those loyal to kiir's ex-vice president, riek machar. in we came here to understand what we can do to stop this war. our belief is that military solutions does not sof the problem, and the problems are very complicated so the people will at the end sit and negotiate until they reach an agreement. >> in the capital khartoum. we come to you sort of in the middle. what do you know of the negotiations taking place in addis ababa? >> yes, conflicting reports about the negotiations in addis ababa. the main negotiations is that they are somehow stalled because
of the rueful of the south sudanese representative delegation there to accept their and in thademands that were prey the rebel side basically to organize elections, for more participation and specific conditions that they have submitted there, and the juba side, those represent manage salva kiir are still refusing to accept those conditions. we also know that in sudan activityada itself,south sudan l cease fire to the rebel leaders. in fact, he has not been participating actively in the recent fighting but he was a rebel leader and he was a separatist, break away faction there in the south for some time there, for several months he has
been a headache for the government in juba and now they are saying that they want him to do the same thing, they want him to declare a cease fire and juba would like to show that it is making progress both in terms of its relations with khartoum and the support khartoum has shown, to the president, and the cease fire with one of the rebel actions, saying this is a tremendous progress and gaining ground against the rebels. >> you make the point that yaya and his forces, have been against the government for some time. now they're peripheral to what we're seeing at the moment and possibly something aside what the government wants to put forward saying look, we're making progress and with this lot you should do the same. >> yes, if i understand your question well, juba has
capitalized on these two developments today that the visit of rm many president bashir on the one hand and what seems to be a cease fire with one of the rebel factions, they are expecting the rebels to respond to this by either realizing their fight against juba and trying to top the government is a lost battle and they have to get concessions in addis ababa during those talks or at least realize that they can't actually make any advances against juba. but the world is now waiting perhaps for the reactions of mr. riek machar main rebel leader in the fighting to topple the regime and advance against the capital of juba, waiting for his reaction to see if these two developments, they are going to dent his resolve to advance towards capitol. >> when you say the world is watching it is not an
exaggeration is it? taking part in these talks in ethiopia, with all the oil there, i want you to give me an idea there of the significance of a possible joint protection force between ada and south sudan. to over-- between sudan and sowd south sudan in these oil rich areas. >> good question david. let me start by saying this conflict has drawn the attention of not only the world but western powers, the united states and other countries for many years to bring stability to sudan and to help south sudan decide its own future. now they are keen on seeing positive developments there. that is why i say the world is waiting for the reaction of the rebels. april your question about cooperation between sudan and south sudan, it is a great
surprise to see that because the government has been showing complete neutrality. they have not sided with either of the sides, but this visit today shows that omar bashir, has decided to come out, and khartoum has agreed to send 900 holy technicians to the south to -- oil technicians to the south. are he hasn't said how he's going to do that because the oil wells are still under the control of the rebels. discussions with joint forces i think in the next few days we'll show where that is going to be a fact on the ground very soon. >> mohamed, thank you very much indeed, regardings negotiation
regarding south sudan. thank you. drive out what called terrorists, al qaeda backed forces called islamic state in iraq and the levant, imran khan reports. >> reporter: confident fighters prepare for ooh afternoon assault often fallujah by progovernment sunni tribes. they say they are ready to face any challenges. elsewhere in the city is is the effect of a shelling campaign. iraq's army is also prepared for the attack. troops have circled the city and are led by sheik abdur al risha. >> withdraw the army from the cities and go through the islamic state in iraq and the levant, this is due to some bl
i.s.i.l. rebels there. i.s.i.l. rebels were trying to bring the battle to cities of fallujah, they will be thoroughly defeated in the desert. >> all the indications that it could welcome soon. but how did we get to this stage? for much of 2013 the sunni tribes in anbar province protested, their prime minister nouri al-maliki, the were blocked with both sunni and shia l political parties. this was seen as a provocation to the tribes. the i.s.i.l. was formed taking advantage of the political power vacuum and waging a bloody being battle across the country. the anbar tribes unofficially
accepted their preference and just last month i.s.i.l. fighters killed over 20 iraqi soldiers. by that time al-maliki had enough. sunni tribal rivalries came to the fore. will this operation be able to bring peace to the region? perhaps not. perhaps when al qaeda and other groups have been supportings it, they simply regrouped in other areas. imran khan, al jazeera. >> the fighter for syria there too it's under pressure too. rebel groups have been trying to drive the fighters outer of their strong holds. the battle has stretched to the town of el rocca beings. troops being run by i.s.i.l. in that area the group has apparently withdrawn from several bases in syria, handing
them over to jabat el nusra another al qaeda backed groups. >> they have emerged as one of the two strongest groups in syria fighting president assad. now, it's not the first time they clashed with rebel groupings but it's the first time we see a united front formed by rebels whether islamist or not against i.s.i.l. this united front seems to be determined that they will rid syria of this group. the attack honor i.s.i.l. has extended to many groups outside syria and what is very interesting ask 92 thee groups have managed to get the fighters in i.s.i.l. to leave their positions to even run away from outside syria. this is the main objective of this attack, they want to rid the area of such an extremist group and they feel it is
necessary in order to rally the international community with syrian opposition. >> we're getting reports that at least ten people have been killed in the village of balza, in the eastern city of aleppo, the atax carried out by the government. bangladesh's prime minister has insisted her reelection is legitimate despite the boycott by opposition parties. she will not enter into any talks until they stop what she calls terrorist activities. jarrod hall reports from abeing dhaka. are. >> she denied that there was a crisis in the country. the way forward she told me is now in the hands of the opposition. >> now we realize that they made a mistake, not participating in the election. they may come forward to you

legitimate government of egypt and the team here say that they probably will do, because the african union is also of the opinion that the morsi government is the democratically elected government of egypt and stilt in effect the rulers of that country, they say there's no reason for the icc to delay. >> i'm quite convince they'd in this case the evidence that shows very clearly that the situation meets the test of gravity. and so the icc should exercise jurisdiction. of course this is dependent upon the failure of the military regime to itself conduct proper investigations into crimes committed in egypt. but at present there is no indication that the military regime is carrying out such impartial fair investigations into what has happened in egypt. on the contrary the evidence
seems to suggest that the military regime has control not only over the security forces but also for the judiciary. >> now at the press conference on monday the team have been stressing exactly how strong their case is, in their opinion. they've got video evidence, they've got photographic evidence and they've got statements from eyewitnesses both inside and outside egypt. they say this proves beyond doubt that the security forces fired live rounds at unarmed protestors. notably when they cleared out two sit-in camps in august 2013, they say in total between july and november last year at least 1120 people lost their lives but the true number could be even higher. they say all these incidents add up to what they call crimes against humanity. now, the legal team have stressed that if their plan mand wamandatewas extended to beforee
3rd of last year, they could be prepared to look into abuses under president morsi. they haven't been asked to do so. they are stressing that at the moment there's a clear case to answer by egypt's current leadership. >> we're going to have more news later in the news hour. let's go back to david in doha for more in egypt. >> barb, thank you very much. egypt has summoned one of iran's prechts tiran'srepresentatives,e involving egypt's army and peaceful as it puts its protestors. day after at least 17 people were killed on friday. one of al jazeera's egypt based producers has been interrogated by state prosecutors and will be

threatened by rebels in the south. salva kiir has been meeting with sudan's president in juba. the two countries nearly came to war on oil and other issues nearly two years ago. let hear from l ahmad salomon. who excess he believes they've put aside their differences. >> they've had a quite checkered past together, armand bashir and salva kiir. but they've had some agreement over oil fees between sudan and south sudan. that money is vital for both countries. if it were to stop like in the beginning of 2012 it would be really detrimental. we had 16 months where the countries weren't receiving oil
and south sudan, 98% of its revenues come from oil. i think it's going to be really difficult for sudan to have its troops permanently stationed in south sudan. talking about the oil fields, that's something differently and if there were an agreement where they could provide a buffer in the sort term then i'm sure that that would be something that might be positive for all parties. but certainly in terms of the economics of this it's important for both countries that the oil continues to flow and riek machar himself has said that that is also his aim. >> thousands of people in the democratic republic of congo. who quild our soldiers. we know that, we know some
