12:04 pm
first time that we have seen up to some since he was arrested in brussels back in march two thousand and sixteen now one of the big questions this week was will. speak will break his silence because until now he has been kept in a high security prison just outside of paris in solitary confinement but he has refused to speak to interrogators when the judge asked him a bit earlier to identify himself by confirming his name and his age he indicated that he did not wish to talk now whether or not that will change later in the week remains to be seen but it does seem that for the time being solid dislike will not talk in this court when he's here on charges of attempted murder in relation to a shootout which happened with police just a few days before he was arrested in fact to lead police to find him in the district amala back in brussels not far from this called right here we take a look back. it was in this house in the district of brussels that sala up

12:06 pm
again. police say many of those involved in the paris and brussels attacks had links to mullen back people here are fed up with the unwanted attention so lobbed islam grew up in mali and back but he is a french citizen and since his arrest he has been kept in solitary confinement in a prison in france often literally here in process he will return to france to wait for another trial or raise the alleged role in the powers attacks. one hundred thirty people were killed in paris when attackers targeted a football stadium cafes and a rock concert. philip depair all son thomas was killed that night now the head of the think tim's association he feels compelled to attend a dislodges trial even. if you don't. it's important for us to be at this trial because it's the first trial for so up to slam he's facing the belgian justice
12:07 pm
system the charges against him in this case in belgium aren't directly linked to the november thirteenth the previous attacks it's true but for us there is a link to this man to sell our. belgium's federal prosecutors says the trial could shed more light on the assailants who planned the paris and brussels attacks whether the cooled will learn more from abt a slum himself is unclear since his arrest he's refused to speak to interrogators one of the time of his arrest solid disli was your most wanted man so it is surprise that security is extremely high now this person's courtroom poses something of a problem is a q.j. nine thousand nine hundred three building enormous in size with thousands of doors and windows which needed to be secured there all more than one hundred police officers right here and in terms of how solid to slum is being brought to the courtroom and back while he is being kept in a prison in northern france it is nearly two hundred kilometers away and he is
12:08 pm
being excluded by elite french and belgian police each day to this trial nothing is being left to chance. or live for us at brussels thank you. international aid agencies are warning that hundreds of thousands of displaced syrians are at risk of being forcibly returned to their homes despite ongoing violence a joint report by six leading agencies says neighboring countries as well as european and u.s. governments are putting pressure on refugees to go back syrian government has taken control of more territory giving the impression many areas are stable enough to return to but every syrian who went home last year three more or displaced and predicts another one point five million will be displaced this year so in a hotel joins us live from a cop alley so you know when this report says pressure from these governments pressure in what way how is that pressure how are they feeling and how is it being played out. well there is an anti refugee sentiment i can give you an example here
12:09 pm
in lebanon if you ask any refugee in this informal tent city if you'd like they'll tell you that the lebanese don't want us here we are not welcome here and the lebanese government doesn't want them to stay and that's why they don't allow them for example to build any concrete structures and if you look behind me it's just tense plastic sheeting in the winter so people are afraid that one day they are going to be forced to return and they're going to return to absolutely nothing it's not just safety that people are worried about yes there are fighting in some areas and yes there are some people from the province of idlib who live here and they're telling us where do we go back there airstrikes daily airstrikes targeting. but there's also the question of infrastructure what infrastructure is less the cities have been destroyed hospitals have been targeted so there is no civilian infrastructure there are no schools so people are worried now the official government policy in lebanon is that there will be no forced returns and that if
12:10 pm
there will be returns we will coordinate with the united nations but the syrian government is refusing to deal with the united nations so humanitarian organizations warning that hundreds of thousands of refugees are at risk. the pressure across the middle east and in europe and elsewhere is. syrian refugees now you should return this is the time to go back and not consulting them not informing them and especially not looking at the real conditions in syria we the humanitarian organizations that are on the ground in syria and in the neighboring countries we call this report dangerous grounds for the simple reason that these women children and men have to be informed of the conditions and we have to assure that it is voluntary when they go back and then we have to assist and protect the return. so you know when we talk about
12:11 pm
a voluntary return when you talk to refugees what do they say to you about wanting to go home. well at the end of the day it is their home it's a miserable life here many of them cannot venture outside the camp if they don't have the proper legal paperwork and costs money and if they want to work they need a sponsor and that costs money as well so people are living really in really desperate and miserable conditions and that's why they'd like to go home but like we mentioned it's still not safe and there's nothing really to go home to. live in the valleys and i thank you. at least eleven people have been injured in a suspected chlorine gas attack in syria's held rebel held at live problems part of the city appears to show people being treated in the town of sorry if confirmed that would be the third reported chlorine attack in just fifteen days of the province has come under heavy bombardment with eleven people killed and there are strikes by russian and syrian government jets this is the scene at

12:25 pm
because the s.p.d. the center left needs to have a deal on the table that they can actually sell to their membership because it's the membership of the s.p.d. who will have effectively a veto on this if they come out with an agreement the can't be sold so the center left voters and frankly it's dead in the water. more than a thousand men leave nepal every day in search of work the money they earn in other countries and send home it is vital to the economy but many are being exploited in face abuse violence and corruption the reports from kathmandu. that cuts what is its national airport this is what happens every day sixteen hundred people mostly young men leave the politics work and gulf countries in malaysia with an unemployment rate hovering around forty percent many of the parties say they have no choice but to leave the country and many fall into the traps of unscrupulous middlemen but at the time i went to qatar to work in the food and beverage industry
