>> announcer: this is al jazeera. welcome to the newshour life from al jazeera's headquarters in doha. coming up remembering the vic tames - bosnia marks the 20th anniversary of the srebrenica massacre, europe's worst atrocity since world war ii. . >> hundreds head for shelter as
6:01 am
a typhoon bears down on eastern china somali street kids grow up neglected in one of the world's most dangerous cities. hello. foreign dignitaries have joined tens of thousands to remember the victims of the srebrenica massacre. it's been 20 years since 8,000 muslim men and boys were killed by bosnian serb forces in july 1995, towards the end of the bosnian war. the former u.s. president bill clinton is attending the ceremony, and was talking a short while ago. this is what he had to say. >> i would like to thank president obama for asking me to come here today, and the american delegation who are
6:02 am
here that 20 years ago 8,000 men and boys died in a genocide here. that awful act finally stirred all the members of n.a.t.o. to support the military intervention that was clearly necessary to end the slaughter, to trigger peace talks, to put bosnia herzegovina on the way back. loved ones and total strangers from all over the world come here, and they can see that 6,000 men and boys are buried with more coming today. >> nadim barber is in srebrenica for us you are at the setting, very busy behind you, what is the atmosphere like.
6:03 am
>> the atmosphere is calm at the like thousands of people families sitting listening to a relay of the speeches by the foreign dignitaries including bill clinton. he mentioned - he said the world is still dominated by people that want to divide people along ethnic racial hatred. where we are, the cemetery down the road from srebrenica now lies in what lies in the republic of srebrenica, one part of a divided bosnia, which was a result of the end of the war, that bill clinton was referring to, the day tonne peace accord and men bosnia feel in some sense the people behind the killings, known as ethnic cleansing have in fact been in a way rewarded. some live here. we have been meeting some that say dispute the hardships they
6:04 am
face, they are determined to keep the memory alive. >> reporter: this woman lives in srebrenica, to call her determined is an understatement. her husband, two sons and two brothers were killed in 1995. she told me how most of the streets are empty. most bosniaks and others like her fled to other parts of the country. she returned years ago, despite knowing that people implicated in the massacre are still at large. >> translation: if people like me wouldn't return, it puts the question of bosnia into question. so i came back to my family home to live from my memories of my family and loved ones. >> her male relatives are among the thousands buried near her home. every year fresh graves are added to the huge burial site. it's not hard to find people living in the area, who not only
6:05 am
deny the extent of the crimes of 20 years ago, but don't accept the term genocide. in the town itself where the bosnia are a minority. they fly next to the serb entity. the serb official says attending the anniversary events is out of the question. >> translation: i understand the feelings of everyone who hasn't found the remains of their loved one, there are families on both sides. i think large numbers are ready to look at the future and the problems that happened here come from outside. >> this bosnian academic agrees with him. there's too much attention on srebrenica. but for different reasons. >> srebrenicas use and mention as if it is a separate entity that is - that exists in a
6:06 am
vacuum. genocide in bosnia started in 1992 as the prosecution is proving in the trials of caro ditch and mel add itch. >> the latest victims are brought to their final resting place. the shared grief of thousands cutting across the generations is made worse by the pain of denial. . >> i wonder if in the time that you are speaking to people there, has anybody been talking about the events in the lead up to this. that took place at the u.n. security council, and russia vetoing that resolution on srebrenica? >> there certainly have. you saw in my reports that many bosnian serbs are pleased at the way that went. and they feel that they are
6:07 am
suffering, and the number of people on their side are not honoured in a similar way. but, of course this event is unique. it happened in a few days and the numbers are so much greater. the united nations institutions of the international court of justice and the hague tribunal for the former yugoslavia both use the label genocide in the trials of rabaa dan cara vich and mel addo vich. for many other bosnians people around the country that are watching today. they'll be aware that there's 1200 or so srebrenica victims still to be identified. 136 people are being buried. it can be years and years before all families get the chance to bury their loved ones in terms
6:08 am
of justice, that's the burning issue. >> we'll leave it there. thank you very much. >> let's remind ourselves of what event led up to the killings in srebrenica. the former yugoslavia began to disint grate in 1991. fighting broke out between local militia and the serb dominated army. a year later bosnia declared independence sparking fighting between serb croat and bosnian groups. the following year the misty upham designated srebrenica as a -- u.n. designated srebrenica as a safe area. bosnian muslim came to the town, and serb forces attacked and they said that bosnian troops
6:09 am
had been attacking surrounding veil engs. a u.n. force failed to protect the people there. men and boys rounded up as we have been hearing were executed. bosnia joined via skype. he's a senior associate at a think tank in sarajevo. you are writing a book about humanitarian intervention. remind us about the significance of the 20th anniversary. >> it should give awes cause to reflect op what we should have learnted. but i don't think the less jones learnt have been -- lessons learnt have been applied. we have a learning curve culminating in the genocide in srebrenica. it didn't just occur in srebrenica it started at the
6:10 am
beginning of the war. the genocide idea the learning process, and you can see the lessons applied in austin kosack in sierra leone, east timor, at the end of the decade. then the word changed. you had 9/11, you had the wars in afghanistan particularly in iraq and that severely damaged american credibility and western appetite to intervene in cases where the only thing that could save human life deter atrocities is application of force. and i think that we have seen that not be applied in carr fewer. we saw if in libya, and didn't see it at all in syria. >> let's go back to what
6:11 am
happened in srebrenica. what led the international community of stopping the terrible war to take place. what happened? >> well i mean the war had been going on for over three years by the time srebrenica occurred. it's been documented that there was a knowledge that there would be mass atrocities. if the enclave in eastern bosnia itself, it would assume that's what it took to come to a deal. edvein and florence wrote an article. finally, that did, when it became clear what had happened and in the public domain, there started to be the political will to intervene in a forceful way and what that demonstrated was had there been that will earlier
6:12 am
on fewer of the 100,000 that were killed in the war in bosnia would have died. >> bill clinton spoke some 10-15 minutes ago. and he mentioned hope and reconciliation. will it really be possible. look at what happened a few days ago at the u.n. security council, is reconciliation possible. >> it is possible but not under these conditions. the reason there was so much hue and cry over the word genocide in the resolution vetoed. is because there was an ongoing project, there's a hope that the serb entity could become independent, and that baggage of having the genocide declaration coming from the security council was seen as an impediment to it. if you want to create a condition for reconciliation, after the world war ii, we need
6:13 am
to make it known that it's over. the western deterrent which existed up until 2006 has fallen back and everybody with an unfulfilled agenda, not just in bosnia but the wider balkans think they can pure sue it. >> thank you kurt basnier for that. >> to mark the 20th anniversary of the srebrenica massacre, al jazeera launched an international website including footage of the memorial. there's picture galleries, maps, and award winning short stories on one winning platform. the address still to come on the kqle juszczyk nouri al-maliki. -- on the al jazeera newshour they voted no now some greeks

6:15 am
many places have been cut off for weeks. aid agencies warned if the humanitarian aid doesn't go through, 6 million can face famine. you cannot survive without getting assistance. it's paramount that the families would be humanitarian aid and food or the situation will certainly move into a different scenario. >> reporter: in the city of taiz forces loyal to the government in exile cast doubt on the ceasefire. in fact we don't have much hope for the truce to succeed. the space with a previous truce. that's why we don't think it will hold. the saudi-led coalition says it
6:16 am
has little reason to hold fire. before the coalition agrees to terms of the humanitarian truce, verbally they agreed to the truce. secondly we need to know what mebbingan ims are in place. without the terms the truce cannot last. >> reporter: in the hours leading up to the truce both sides expressed an equal lack of trust. it has happened before and many expected a ceasefire to take place. no one expected a ceasefire, because it is a lawless country controlled by others. >> translation: we ask the international community to last longer. yemenis are afraid the truce are
6:17 am
not expected by either side. we all need peace a desperate 21 million yemenis, hinging on the possibility of a truce. julian is u.n.i.c.e.f.'s yemen representatives and has described the situation on the ground in sanaa. >> the situation of women and children is catastrophic. 20 million need some form of assistance, and we have people that can't get access to clean water, we have a nutrition problem. there's a major epidemic. it's terrible. we can deliver supplies across the country. the divvy is not delivering supplies and parents to health centers where they can get
6:18 am
assistance. if a mother and father is too scared to bring in their child, that child will not get vaccinated. we need the fighting to stop so that the people will come in and get assistance. that is the case. more generally across the country. >> in iraq 100 families across the bridge linking anbar with baghdad. the bridge was closed. it's the main route for i.s.i.l. fighters. it's feared they'll infiltrate by hiding among civilians, using the bridge. >> more than 3 million people have been displaced. many are tracked in areas that are so remote. jane arraf travelled there to
6:19 am

6:20 am
there's tonnes of hospitals around the country that are not receiving the required medicine to operate. they have no electricity to operate the equipment. >> to minimise the risk. aid being diverted, the i.c.r.c. oversees the distribution. it is instead of through local partners. like many aid commissions this one was delayed. staff members were stopped at checkpoints. between record numbers of displaced people, this has been a crisis that no one is equipped to deal with. even the simplest of aid is difficult. there are hundreds of thousands of people that aid agencies can't get to. >> this woman lives in an abandoned shop with her five children and grandchildren
6:21 am
three of her children are blind and disabled. they left their home when the village under attack. >> translation: there were mortars and air strokes. everyone left. we were the only ones still there. >> a lot of women are here without husband and adult sons. this woman saw her son four months ago. she left three young children at home to see if she could get some help. >> she's not on the list. they wait. they at least have a hope of getting help. an explosion killed at least one person in downtown cairo it happened outside the italian console ute, one of the busiest intersections. authorities are trying to determine the course of the class. >> burundi's presidential election has been pose penned. it was due to take place, and
6:22 am
has been put back to july the 21st. very much disputed after the president pierre nkurunziza announced that he was going to search for - seeking a third term. the u.n. have been saying that there was a great risk of violence and had made the warning and asked for the presidential election to be put back. that's the latest we are learning there. >> eurozone finance minister are due to meet in brussels later on saturdayment to discuss the latest proposal. they have backed the plan, including pension reform and tax rises. simon mcgregor-wood reports that many greeks oppose the measure. >> reporter: the prime minister's new proposal may have convinced some of the european creditors. selling it to the greek parliament was a tougher challenge. to many of his own members, this deal looks lick something they
6:23 am
already -- looks like something they had already recommend. it was some u-turn. he admitted it would not we easy. >> despite closed banks and difficulties weaving their way into the social fabric the greek people made a diff and historic decision. they rejected the ultimatum. they didn't give us a mandate. it boosted our mandate for an checkly viable deal. >> outside many thousands of the greeks that voted no for austerity gathered with a sense of betrayal and anger. pensions are going to be reduced radically. they have been cut. when the state doesn't have more money, they'll cut pensions further. >> what has happened now is a big mistake, a huge one. the proposals put forward are devastating. the only realistic option is to leave the e.u. most are dead against everything
6:24 am
that reappeared in the latest proposal. it seems for draconian than the last one. the notion that by voting no in the referendum these people would a better deal. >> the head of critical meetings of the euro group on saturday in germany, where it matters, they'll take some convincing. >> it's the most substantial programme we have seen to far. we must acknowledges that. there's a lot of skepticism over the question of how seriously it is met. >> in brussels the 19 finance minister of the euro will pause there every paragraph of the proposal. in athens, their verdict will be greeted with mixed emotions a memorial service has been held for the passengers and crew of the malaysian airlines flight

6:34 am
been progress with a sort of nod, and then followed it up - i asked a question are you confident, and it was clear we could make out the word always. the other bit of information that is important is foreign ministers appeared to be on their way back. laurent fabius is on a plain, and sergey lavrov is on his way back to vienna. they have been here a few times before, during this process but you will only get a deal when all are here. sergey lavrov made it clear ha wants to be here for a deal. the fact that they are on their way back, positive news i think. >> positive but clearly there are sticking points. remind us what those are. >> well they are the same in many ways. details of the same sticking points throughout this round of
