a buffer zone along the border or elsewhere in syria a russian fighter jets being shot down by opposition forces over province russia's defense ministry says the pilot managed to reject what was then killed in a ground fight near the town of south africa afterwards moscow launched dozens of strikes ten civilians have been killed and russia says it killed thirty fighters there's been heavy fighting in it live for weeks now the u.n. saying about one hundred thousand civilians have been displaced seventy deca joins us live from montauk in southern turkey near the syrian border so stephanie how much of a game changer is it now that the the rebels have demonstrated they can down a russian jet. but they won't have to wait to see sami adds you know nothing is simple inside syria certainly a huge symbolic victory for the rebels but i do think president the russian
president vladimir putin is on a man who is going to let this pauls without consequence you did mention there was there were many missiles fired at it live from the sea by the russians after the fact we're just hearing from now activists twenty three civilians killed as you mentioned the russian saying that killed over thirty fighter is russia is now negotiating with turkey for turkey to be the middleman so to speak to get the body of the pilot back from the rebels but this will also cause a lot of diplomatic political talk behind the scenes because of course when it comes to syria when it comes to the it live operation there are international consequences russia turkey major players that has an effect on the operation enough we know as you mentioned there with that death toll that turkey suffered on saturday so that take a look at how it all links up. this is a russian fighter jet shot down by opposition forces. i
mean remember the pilot manages to eject but he didn't survive. for these syrian fighters it's a huge symbolic victory. russian the syrian government have intensified their bombardment of province over the last two months government forces a slowly capturing territory in the south what is the last remaining syrian province under full rebel control. they're inching closer to the city of saka which lies on a strategic road linking the northwest all the way to the capital damascus territory that is now almost fully under government control. and in syria's complex web of regional and international allegiances some say this offensive has been well planned and has further implications been there are some people who are in fact wondering if there is a tacit agreement between the russians and the turks whereas the russians would actually give the green light for the turks to act in against the kurds in
exchange for the russians and allies actually to capture parts of this of this. the government offered the meaning of that old between the mosques and that there but for. that offensive against the kurdish controlled district of africa is now into its third week turkey's backing fighters from the free syrian army against the kurdish people protection units. turkey considers the y.p. g a terrorist organization even though it's the united states is most effective in fighting i still turkey has been intensely to areas there is a base just right behind us and this is in line with what politicians here are saying the first phase of this operation the push the y.p. . away from its borders. all along that border a steady stream of military movement vehicles i mean ition and buses packed with
syrian f.s.a. fighters this is a very visible operation but it's also a difficult one the y.p. g. know the terrain well and they have been preparing for this it's the latest frontline in a war that year after year simply changes its form and never seems to end suffering you mention the turkish casualties and the three in this that battle entering a much more difficult stage now this is just a taste of things to come. i think it may be a taste of things to come sami it is a difficult fight as we mentioned there the y.p. gee this is their home terrain if you will if we can call it that these are mountains they're what they've been preparing for this they have been expecting this you had people you speak to over the last few years so what you saw on saturday was five turkish soldiers killed when the y.p. g. attacked blew up a tank also one soldier killed in a cross border attacks here in turkey and one other now from our sources that we've
been speaking to from the y.p. g. friday night saying that the y.p. g. has announced that they've launched a guerrilla warfare now of course the conventional army as the turkish army or the f.s.a. not trained in that kind of unconventional warfare if you will sami and at the same time i think a lot of people also questioning whether an escalation has to do with this video that was posted online by a free syrian army fighters of a female kurdish fighter cos naked her body bruised taught it was a very difficult video which caused a lot of uproar online the f.s.a. kamandi is now telling its fighters a there's an investigation into that and b. not to upload any video so i think the third week now into this some border areas have been taken with the y.p. g. still has some areas it is going to be a difficult operation for sure seventy days of that aren't so much. now the attorney general of the maldives has told all state institutions and the military to disregard any supreme court ruling impeaching the president police have been

ruling. remove the attorney general from power but however we have not so far anymore. talk about the supreme court going through its own impeachment motion and let alone you know this is not something that is how it was in the constitution for the supreme court to go ahead and remove the already seen some protests the president seems to be holding on to his position any plans for the opposition to take to the streets again. yes i have no opposition on friday said that they will continue. until the government enforces the supreme court ruling which freed all of the opposition leaders that for already convicted in. trials that have been described as controversial and. not fully enduring due

context of the moderate center right in italy and this will not disappear the rhetoric will not disappear because this case will will make the. tension even stronger did that they've been in power already with silvio berlusconi since the in the ninety s. . they're not the league has been one of them one of the major part in any case they implemented some tough one team ignorance lowell's so i mean in theory yes they can they can win election i mean if we look at sort of it's today electoral surveys the center right is leading but we don't know with a proportional electoral proportional system if they will get a majority or not so things are very unclear now and so far but these parties have been already influencing italian politics since a very long period now the problem is that for years and probably even today

to spy on the trump aide the f.b.i. had argued against its release saying it had grave concerns the document contains what it calls material emissions of fact democrats on the committee want to release their own memo in response they say the republican mo is aimed at the reigning special counsel robert mother's investigation into the trump campaign suspected links with russia and the gallacher is following developments for us from washington d.c. . well there are a couple of key questions here as to what will happen or what may happen next and chief among those is a concern that president trump will use this memo as a pretext to fire robert mueller the special counsel who's in charge of the russian investigation democrats say if he does that it will cause a constitutional crisis we know of course that he wanted to do that back in the summer but held off on that decision because some senior members of staff threatened to resign themselves the other question is now hanging over the future
of the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein he is involved in the russian investigation president trump has been talking about him in very negative terms and it's not sure what will happen to him but the attorney general has been backing him up and of course the f.b.i. have been backing up their own people saying play hard and tackle hard because they are being permanently attacked by the president it really is an unprecedented situation you have a sitting u.s. president attacking his own intelligence community talking about this russian investigation as a witch hunt and saying this memo really clears his name it does not this is far from over we're not sure what will happen next but the entire nation if not the entire world is watching very closely indeed actress summer firm and those added her name to the list of women accusing hollywood producer harvey weinstein of sexual assault firman told the new york times weinstein assaulted her in a hotel room in the ninety's after the pair worked together on the film pulp fiction firm and accused weinstein of pushing her down and attempting to expose

the great this is a farce it's all happening because the americans want them and near so early attempts at compromise came to nothing the government in the former yugoslav macedonian capital scorpio refused to relinquish the term macedonia and greece rejected the use of even a composite name that included it such as northern or slow of macedonia one hundred countries recognized the new state including many nato and e.u. countries concerned for its stability and survival but greece has cited its own security concerns as a vital part of any agreement the government would be called upon to remove articles in its constitution but implied claims territory article forty nine talks about protecting macedonian minorities in neighboring countries article three leaves open the possibility of changing the country's borders in two thousand and eight the greeks vetoed former yugoslav macedonia as entry into nato undeterred the
government in scorpio erected statues to ancient king alexander the great and his parents but now there's a more moderate government in scope here willing to compromise over the name and greece's official put. has changed to accept a composite name that includes the word macedonia but as far as greeks are concerned these are legal niceties that skirt the real issue which is national identity but this name symbolize something if i come to her house and we say we're going to have the same surname that means we have the same father and same rights this is not we're not obliged to give with us professor funnels daucus agrees that a nation comprised principally of slaves has no historic claim but says charity is in the greek interest we don't like them being called go calling themselves macedonians bed. they call themselves when they need an identity can we convince our macedonians public opinion that giving them
a bit of identity from. home history will not races in this the talks that reopened last month are over the country's name and do not address identity or ethnicity but as both peoples see the two issues as interlinked reaching an agreement they will accept appears a difficult jump al-jazeera for us thousands of people have taken part in opposition protests against togo's present. they want to restrict presidents to two five year terms missing days against the proposal he's been in office since two thousand and five took over from his father who ruled togo for thirty eight years talks on constitutional reforms will take place later this month ambitious plans are being drawn up to connect east and west africa by rail the trans african railway line will run through ten countries now those behind the project hope it
will increase trade on the continent but the line could take decades to complete the final part of our series looking at global trade routes across hard core ports . from senegal. on board the five fifteen train from the car to chess most passengers are on their way home after a long day of work in the city. the fifteen minute journey home always seems a bit longer than the morning commute. after years writing this train was fun so has learned to enjoy this moment free from just directions. remember i'm walking talking a good time for myself here if i drive to work it would take me at least four hours and i'd be stuck in traffic trains are still the quickest safest and cheapest way to travel. they call it the little blue train the locomotive was bought from pakistan the wagons from india. the parts were brought to senegal and refurbished in the one nine hundred seventy s. it's the only passenger train left in senegal all the other lines including the
historic train to mali were abandoned because they were too costly to run much to the frustration of commuters and railway unions alike. privatizing the railway lines was a clear mistake a country cannot grow without developing its roadways system but now we are excited with the steps in to go and other sites are taking the african union has an ambitious plan to connect the port of the car in the west to the port of djibouti in eastern africa linking ten countries many of them landlocked it's called the trams african railway project just said there are seven thousand eight hundred kilometers of unfinished railway tracks alone will cost thirteen billion dollars to build. it's an enormous amount each country is tasked with finding its own financing for their part of the railway. chinese companies have signed deals to rebuild of former colonial rail lines that were abandoned by the french both in the car and in djibouti it's the start of an epic engineering project that will take
years to build and promises thousands of jobs across the continent. there are no roads or highways connecting the west of africa to the east nor is there a direct flight between the car and djibouti in fact no one has ever tried to connect both coasts of africa neither the french nor the british the former colonial powers. construction hasn't started yet but the prospect of reopening the century old tracks has got me excited and hopeful. abandon train station may get a new lease on life and for the many passengers like so who use this every day. it may not be the end of the line for the five fifteen train from the car because hark al-jazeera yes senegal. this is al jazeera and these are the top stories now seven turkish soldiers have been killed in fighting with kurdish y p g fighters in northern syria so he says it
