>> in this historic moment, we have the
start of national accord from tripoli, and the beginning of a new era of communication with the sons of our people. regardless of their political attitudes, this will be based on the libyan political agreement. and the guarantees that it includes, to all parties, and the goals of the february 17th revolution. >> meanwhile, the head of the current government in tripoli is issuing a warning to the court following it's arrival in the capital. >> the government of national salvation calls them to hand over themselves or go back. the government is working on entities, as well as the community leaders to take the necessary steps to save the country from the threat of chaos and foreign intervention.
>> let's get more on this now with george
in the studio with me. northeast and international relations, thank you for being with us, and so the tension had already been rising in tripoli, ahead of the arrival of the u.n.-backed government. and we're hearing there what the current government had to say, and they're not happy about their presence. how might the politicians and the armed groups backing them respond now? >> first, the problem is that the government in tripoli, the government of the national salvation is not unified. and there's another government and that's divided as well. some support the idea of a government backed by the united nations. and so we're going to see a lot of infighting taking place. not just the new government. and not just those associated with the government. but also with the militias, in
tripoli, and they are bothed in benghazi as well. >> the international and western expectations with the new government, this is supposed to be the body to unites the administrations in libya, and does it look like they will be able to take control in the face of this kind of factionlism with the old resistance? >> well, ostensively, the purpose of the new government is to provide a single government for the country. but that's not the reason. i suspect that one of the refines why the united nations is so anxious is because outside players, particularly in europe, are concerned about what's happening in libya, because of extremism. and also because of mike race. the season is about to start, and that means floods of
migrants come into italy. and they need the new government to invite them n. >> is that likely to happen, given that it could damage the new government? >> i suspect that some suspect that that could your, and one of the reasons, the opposition to the unity government, precisely as people anticipate, it's what they're there to do. it's going to cause tensions, and it's a question of whether or not the new government can embed itself in tripoli and be accepted. and if it can, it will follow. >> how great a challenge will that be? given that they have very experienced, battle hardened fighters supporting them? >> they do indeed. and they could not have gone to tripoli without that. but other things too, special forces are operating in central libya.
and the real questions, if the armed forces in eastern lib use will accept that. >> he has been opposed to it, because one of the conditions of the unity government is that he would step down, and he's not prepared to do that. so there are things to be solved before the new government can go ahead. >> one of the things in the landscape with libya, on the ground, the representatives, all the politicians, and what does that mean for the short to meme-termed future, not just for the libyan people, but the sort of international dimension, with isil influence and of course the refugees. >> the problem has always been that on the ground, the extremist militias are more powerful than the government that's supposed to control them. and that's a problem that has persisted. the real problem, we have to be
there to accept it. and they are getting very indeed. another consideration too, institution innings libya that still govern the whole country. one is the central bank and the other is the national oil company. if the new government can gain control of those institutions, they will hold the purse strings and the source of libya's wealth. >> thank you very much. moving to pakistan now, thousands of protesters have been staging a sitin in one of the capital's main streets, and they're slowly disbursing. they agreed to leave after negotiations with the
government. islamabad,. >> the protests have come to a peaceful of sorts conclusion. now, the pakistani police force were ready to go in, and you can see them over there. there was a pressure tactic, and they have won and the protesters will be able to leave. the protesters are saying this is a victory for them. look at what they're doing, they're waving their flags and they're chanting. they say that what they have really achieved here is putting pakistan's blasphemy laws back on the agenda, and they say that they're crucial to pakistan. the pakistani government is looking at the crucial laws, and trying to figure out what happens next. >> arrest warrants have been

ki-moon said that it would be a win for everyone. almost 5 million people have fled syria's war, and many of them in neighboring lebanon. >> now home to tens of thousands of syria's refugees. the scene is rep kateed across lebanon's valley. tents made out of the flimsiest materials, set up to shelter those who fled the war in syria, there are no hospital clinics, no schools. the refugees are not allowed to work lega legally, so most depen hand outs, or sending their children to work in a rampant child labor market. the refugees are saying for some time that they aren't getting the funding needed to build housing for more than 1 is million refugees in lebanon. surprising them on wednesday, ban ki-moon called on
the community to not pledge money, but pledge to countries, capable of pridin providing thee dignified homes. >> we're facing the biggest refugee crisis of our time. the world must rise to the challenge. providing hope means providing pathways to a brighter future. neighboring countries have done far more than their share, and others must now step up. >> reporter: this is not the first time that ban ki-moon has urged action for the syrian refugees. unfortunately, the war has gone on for more than five years ago, and hundreds of thousands of syrians continue to live in the most dire of situations. many of these children were born here, and this is all they know about the world. while the international conferences continue to take place, their minds do not
improve, and they keep getting worse. she's blind in one eye. the mother of two girls, she has been living here for more than three years. when she first arrived, she thought it would be only a few months before she would be able to return to her home in damascus. >> aid has stopped, and the situation makes you cry, the parents can't afford to feed or clothe them. they're hungry, the children, only ten years old, are working to help their parents. >> reporter: the war has raged on for half a decade and there's still no end in sight. the international community has formed military coalitions. without the same resolve being demonstrated to bring peace, these children may never see the world beyond the miserable and squalid camps of lebanon. aljazeera, lebanon. >> joining us now from am an in
jordan, carl from the refugee council, and thank you very much for speaking to us. we're getting a snapshot of some syrian refugees in lebanon. and tell me, what are your thoughts on the outcome of the conference with ban ki-moon today? >> well,. >> what we're witnessing is a tidal wave of disappointment from nags that could be doing so much more to help this region with coping with a five-year-old [ cat meowinfive cat-year-old catastrophe on its doorstep. with the council and the rest of the nation, in a much better position to show responsibility for this, by taking 10%, just
10% of 4.8 million refugees living in just georgia, leb mon and not turkey. 10% of those, the ones who need the most help right now. because they're living in desperate kilograms, just as your correspondent has just shown us. these people are not able to work, and in these countries, they're living in abject poverty, and they could be held. and especially to stop this lethal journey that has been going on from this region to europe. these people shouldn't be forced to take that journey. they should have an alternative route, as is their right as refugees, they should be given all the protection necessary, and yet again, we're being dragged down by europe and the rest of the wealthier countries that could be doing so much more. >> legal routes are not open to
millions of refugees outside of syria in neighboring countries, and i suppose now, there's a realization descending on many of these people in lebanon, in jordan, in turkey, what they thought might have been a temporary situation, is becoming more permanent. what are the scenarios, and what do you envision happening over the next few years, should the war in syria continue, and should wealthier countries continue to refuse to resettle the most vulnerable? >> well, the reality is in a year from now, we'll probably be here again, talking about the settlement refugees. the only way to nip this in the bud, and selfishly for these countries, who are more obsessed with building borders and walls and stopping refugees from reaching their shores is for them to sit around a negotiating table. there's no military or even a
humanitarian solution to the crisis in syria, and there's only negotiated peace that can solve this crisis. otherwise, we're going to be stuck in this patch work of how many will we resettle. and how much aid is needed, which is never enough, and we're struggling to keep up with the sheer magnitude. and the only viable solution is a peaceful, politically negotiated solution. and right now, we're at this very fragile moment of hope, where there's a fragile cessation of violence and of hostilities inside of syria, but this won't last until it is followed up by a robust political process. until we see that, we're bound to keep seeing the same scenario repeating itself, and the thousands of people fleeing, millions displaced inside of syria, and many more trying to cross and a very
dangerous journey. >> thank you very much, carl, from the refugee council for sharing your thoughts with us today. there's more to come on the news hour. turkey's security forces warn against a attack. the buildings in pal mire a. the russian experts that started to visualize the city after isil. and going on. valencia gives gary hamill his marching orders. our top story now, in libya, arriving in the capital, warning the existing government to it stay away. mahmoud is in tripoli for us,
and there of been reports of gunfire a little bit earlier, and now the reports of armed men storming a pro tripoli tv station in the country, and what are you hearing? >> well, marianne, the gunfire that we heard, those opposing the government national report, the government sponsored by the united nations, they had their first meeting today in the capital of tripoli. and later on, we got reports from sources that approved general national congress, television, and they have been the voice of the congress here in tripoli. there are two rival parties.
one is called the general congress, and the other is called the house of representatives. now, the men told me that tonight, they air the statement on television, saying that it has been strong, and it will be closed down until the investigation is completed. now, the general national congress is one of the political entities protesting the preparation of the government of national accord in tripoli. here in tripoli, too many political institutions, the general national congress, and it's national salvation government. in eastern libya, the house of representatives, and now, to be clear, not only general national congress members, the government of national accord, you can say the general
national congress here are with the government of national accord, that u.n. sponsored government of national accord. and the same in house of representatives. only a few number of parliamentarians are opposing the government of national accord, and they have certain demands, like demanding the -- >> it is a very complicated situation, from what you described -- >> outside of the parliament. >> yes, it's very complicated because even the existing government in tripoli that you would expect would be in opposition to the u.n. backed government, that opposition in itself is very split and fragmented and what does this mean for the coming days and weeks in tripoli? what do you expect in the
coming hours? could there be further unrest? >> well, to begin w. the fact that the position has finally reached the capital. and here at the navy base here in tripoli, that's a big step ahead. but on the other hand, each political institution here, either with the government, or against it, the new government, each political institution, they have their own military on the ground. like what happened today, we heard that shooting in the streets from brigades, who are opposing the government, we recently, we have heard recently that the talks are onto the brig aids that are opposing the government of
national accord. but other than that, it's unpredictable. because we have so many military brigades on the ground, and each one has their own affiliation, political affiliation, so if the talks or negotiations are not resulting in positive outcomes with those brigades, then it's really very, very unpredictable. >> thank you very much. in tripoli, appreciate it. now, turkey security forces have issued warnings of a possible attack against non-religious attacks in istanbul. the nature of the threat inside of turkey is evolving with syrian and kurdish groups changing their tactics.
>> reporter: istanbul is hardly on lockdown. after a suicide bombing, isil iis targeting non-muslims. there's a new wave of terror. former terrorist attacks are about creating a shock. but in this new generation, we see waves of terror. both isil and the pkk want to lockdown life. israel has the second highest report, telling them to leave turkey. around istanbul's synagogue, the security has been tightened. they tell us that there's no specific threat against any one religious community. but they have increased their presence at religious sites across the country, with a particular focus on non-muslim
ones. turkey isn't just battling isil. earlier, links to the kurdistan worker's party, the pkk. since last year, the government has been waging a deadly war of attrition. they back the pkk in syria, where they fight isil. arriving in the u.s. for a new security summit, there's more talk of cooperation between the allies, cracking down on isil on the syrian border. instructing family members of its military personnel to leave this country. >> a good pull for isil, the personnel, finance, and logistics, as it comes under more pressure in syria and iraq, more training for turkey,
we could try to create cells here and export them to the world. so now that the security forces are doing what they can to head off the next attack, people here are talking about when, not if. >> the columbian government has announced the start of peace negotiations with the second biggest rebel group, the left-wing liberation army, or eln, will start talks with the revolutionary forces of columbia, they are talking about ending the half century long conflict. alessandro is in bogota, and how important is it that they are taking part in peace talks? >> well, felicity, this is a scene of a very important announcement, a major step toward being able to really bring to an end the conflict in
colombia, and overall in the country, since the beginning of the negotiations with the fight four years ago, the government has been pushing to bring the eln to the negotiating table: and they saw an agreement as incomplete and somewhat fragile with the country, and for example, they feared that eventual disdent members could easily switch to the eln ranks, and together take over again some of the most remote regions of the countries, right now under control or under the influence of the farc. so bringing them to the negotiating table means that once that the peace deal is signed with them as well, there
are no more rebel groups in the country, and the government can more easily bring the reforms that will be necessary in the conflict. >> the negotiations with farc, the main rebel group have been going on for a while now, and why did it take so long to bring eln, the second rebel group onboard? >> well, it's really it's own group. they are two different groups, and even now, the negotiationing with them will start in earnest. it will be to their negotiating table, and so it's the same goal, ending the civil conflict in columbia. and also, because eln has been making negotiations within the organization, the traditional rebel group, but the eln has a more partitionpatory system among the fronts of the army. so just reaching an agreement
with them is not only reaching an agreement with them, but all groups are onboard. and it seems that now they do have enough approval from all of different groups that make the eln to start formal peace talks. >> in bogota, thank you. more to come for you on the news hour. on the move, again, the refugees camping in calais in paris, and we'll bring you that story, and a dispute in the gulf, and his sister is an olympic shot put champion, and can steve adams produce a gold medal performance for oklahoma?

essential, as well as hezbollah and other groups. after palmyra, we'll have to move to the surrounding areas, the eastern part of syria, and the main stronghold area of isil. >> well, russia is offering a different kind of support to syria. a team of archaeologists want to aid in rebuilding the ancient city of palmyra. >> reporter: when the first pictures of palmyra emerged, it was when the large parts of the historical complex were destroyed. but other parts, like the roman theater, had survived. >> especially for archaeologists, looking at the minimals before, it's a horrible sight. most of the things that we talked about were either destroyed or partially damaged,
and made some city models of it, and then we created the models, and we realized, what if we can make a holographic reconstruction of this. >> reporter: as the syrian army, backed by russia's air power were advancing on palmyra, far away a virtual reconstruction was already underway. satellite imagery, along with isil -produced videos, has already showed that the temple of bell, three towers, the temple of bellshammine, and the 2000-year-old temple of triumph were destroyed. russia played a key role in saving what is left of palmyra. very much like palmyra, parts of it were once flatted, when
lenningrad was bombed out duringet siege. 872 days, one of the longest and most destructive in history. like isis now, the nazis in world war ii wanted to see st. petersburg reduce to rubble. many of its landmarks were looted and vandalized, yet russia restored it back to its glorious past. petrosky said it could be fundamental in healing pal mire after of all, st. peter'sberg. >> we're very happy, because people understand that palmyra was very important. not only militarily, but culturally. some of the monuments are still there, and the stones are still there, but it can be rebuilt only to a certain point. it will never be like before. >> the hermitage museum already
houses several ancient artifacts from syria, including this unique piece, that reveals the tax system, along with this important hall. after the dust settles, a new army will invade palmyra, but >> accused of plotting a coup against her. la russa is accused of fraud. her government is coming under preach, and an increasing drive to empeach her, and can she recover from this? >> that's right, miriam, impeachment hearings in congress by special committee continue in the congressional building behind me.
she's fighting for her life and she's clearly not going down without a fight. she doesn't have any plans to step down, and she's also reminding people that she hasn't been convicted of any crime, and that also about a year ago and a half ago, she was democratically elected in free and fair election. so that's her message to people. and at the presidential palace today, she held an event where she was talking about giving homes to poor people. but used the opportunity to push back against her critics, and left in no uncertain terms of what she thinks about the impeachment process. >> impeachment without proof of a crime of responsibility is what? it's a coup. this is the issue. there's no point impressing
that it's a hype intellectual impeachment. we're discussing a concrete impeachment, without crime. >> how the brazilians feel about all of this, she has come up against serious challenges and real doubt has been cast on her and her position and her legitimacy. >> a new poll came out by a respected polling firm in brazil. and 68% of them don't think that dilma roussef is doing a good job. her polls continue to fall. and you just heard from dilma roussef. and the opposition, they say that this is not a coup at all, but an impeachment process that's going through the
avenues of congress, and the superior court. and clearly, that's not how dilma rousef sees it. you have the opposition in the coming days, the 1993 coup against the ex-president, they're using it as an opportunity to say, there's a coup then, and there's one happening now against dilma roussef. so the brazilian population is very very divided on how they see this, but everyone agrees that the country is in deep political turmoil and no one knows how it will end. >> thank you very much.
>> myanmar, the civilian government. shore has been sworn in as president, and his close ally, suu kyi, has been appointed to lead key ministries. >> reporter: an emotional moment for many in myanmar. after a long and difficult fight for democracy. a civilian president it in. witnessing a historic event, many who were jailed for years by the military. the new president is relatively unknown. he has been hand-picked by suu kyi, who consitutionally has been barred from the office. because her childeren are foreign nationals. they will try to change this constitution. >> as the new government, we'll try to establish the constitutional principles, which are national reconciliation and the peace
process and establishment of the union, and we'll try to develop the living standard of the people. >> suu kyi will be the foreign education minister and the head of the president's office. she's seen by many as the person who will in fact be exercising the powers of president. all eyes are on this lady, suu kyi, but they're not sure how much change she'll be able to bring. despite the excitement, celebrations throughout the country were subdued. >> i really wanted to make a big celebration, to celebrate this era, but i can't because i have to earn money for my children. chow is the last farmer after the military evicted hundreds to build the new city. he hopes that the new government will be less corrupt
