7:03 pm
participate in such a game if the world turned a blind eye to killing thousands of people rallied across rebel held areas to show their opposition to an all out on slaughter on it labe which is home now to three million people the u.n. has warned of a humanitarian disaster on a scale not seen so far in the seven year war and we're hearing that there's been some significant and strikes in the area through saturday morning let's go live downtown taqiyya on the turkey syria border our correspondent stephanie decker is there so stephanie has this much talked about offensive on began we were talking earlier and we said well we don't think so but now there's been a clear ramping up in in air attacks on the region. they there has it's the biggest escalation since airstrikes resumed after a three week low on tuesday it's still going on airstrikes and also heavy artillery
7:04 pm
shelling in the southern part of the province it is however we have to say sort of less populated land these are villages in areas that civilians have already left some time ago there are however at the moment five killed but you know whether it started or not this is a rumor going back and forth a lot of the pro-government sources and media reporting anonymous sources military on the ground that it has started but at the same time we haven't heard anything official yet but again when it comes to syria you have to read the ground i think you know a lot of people have been speaking about the first phase of the last couple of weeks that would have targeted this southern areas but i think the next couple of hours will tell whether this will continue at the intensity that we're seeing right now but again you know there has been sucked into space and and we know that nothing was agreed on terror in detroit yesterday so people are not surprised been waiting for an escalation for a very long time now you talk about those talks in tehran that is clearly no
7:05 pm
consensus this. offensive now it will be avoided politically. well the turkish president was trying to buy some time saying that they had to understand that patience was needed in dealing with the problem of you know what they call terrorist groups inside it of this of course many different armed groups inside it live turkey is the one that needs to deal with them they're the guarantor under the este on a process of province so they've been talking to all the groups on the ground particularly those called terrorist organizations like. to make them either you know merge into other groups or put down their weapons from what we understand at the moment those groups are not willing to do that and of course it live adrian just briefly was the area that all these fighters that didn't want to deal with the reconciliation process as in other areas of syria were brought to and it was almost like for the damascus a problem that they were going to deal with later well now the question is where these people going to go damascus is made it very clear it's going to take it back
7:06 pm
so it's going to be very difficult to see how this is going to be dealt with politically when we know when it comes to syria through experience through the years that it's always the military option that comes first and political deals come later stephanie thanks i'm serious stephanie decker that live on the turkey syria border. a death penalty has been confirmed against seventy five people for their part in protests against the twenty thirteen military coup in egypt fifty others were given a life sentence including the former muslim brotherhood spiritual leader mohammed badie most of them were protesters who survived the massacre at a public square in cairo on his ear a shallot ballots reports. it began here in cairo as robust square in august twenty third protesters had staged a sisson demonstration against the military coup which deposed egypt's first democratically elected president mohamed morsy security forces moved in with a now as more than nine hundred protesters had been killed we have to have order

7:10 pm
after waiting two days for the rebel representatives to join them for un brokered talks that they didn't fly to switzerland due to concerns about their safety they say they didn't have a plane or permission from the u.s. and saudi governments to leave yemen but the u.n. special envoy remains hopeful of future negotiations. we going to moscow to take up the issues that we will have discussed here this is what i mean by we have begun this is what i mean by we have begun. it's too early for me to say when the next round of consultations will take place or will be held that's obviously going to be high on the agenda it was so that we don't go through a repeat of this week and i think it's important to note that. and also wanted to be here they're disappointed not to be here and it's important to make that point very clear. we have had extensive discussions with their representatives
7:11 pm
. and it must got this past week and i've no doubt about that whatever you may think and they're very keen to take this process forward and so is the international community who are who are remarkably united. in. each time these talks by so with all of our responsibility by these coup plotters these groups who are exploiting the international efforts of the yemeni government to reach peace they are being totally irresponsible the special envoy was unfortunately accommodating the co plotters and giving them excuses the statements of mr martin griffiths with us and other partners had expressed his dissatisfaction with their unjustified position i feel i need to thank the government delegation for its work despite the many many provocations. al-jazeera stated change has been following it all for us in geneva. the peace process collapsed before it even began
7:12 pm
they were meant to establish a framework for the peace process they are meant to build confidence measures to try and bring the trust together between the two warring factions but now the yemen government delegation attacking their bags in the hotel behind me and are ready to leave this is been a huge disappointment for the special envoy for the amman martin griffis he hasn't given up all hope though he hopes to continue with the peace process in some form he hopes perhaps to bring the the sides together at a later date but he won't give any timetable on that let's hear what he said we're going to. take up the issues that we will have discussed here this is what i mean by we have begun this is what i mean by we have begun. it's too early for me to say when the next round of consultations will take place or will be held that's obviously going to be high on the agenda to do so that we don't
7:13 pm
go through a repeat of this week and i think it's important to note that. and also wanted to be here they're disappointed not to be here but the prospects for resurrecting the peace process do not look good a member of the yemeni government delegation here told me that as far as there was concern they were going to try and force the who tease to the negotiating table this whole affair has actually shown how wide the gulf is between the two warring parties whatever martin chrestus the special envoy for yemen decides he's going to face an uphill task if he's going to try and get these two sides together in the meantime the already desperate situation on the ground in yemen is deteriorating further out as it was anderson and reports now from djibouti just across the gulf of. another protest over
7:14 pm
a shattered economy much bigger than previous demonstrations this is the booty rebel held capital city of sana'a what. they want to starve our people to death shame on them we will triumph no matter what the saudi and american enemies do. in government held areas in aden and southern yemen here the aftermath of a six day of protests with shops all closed down but central to whichever side people are on isn't so much the cost of living it's the cost of survival demonstrations continue for and against the saudi u.s. a coalition backed government and different reasoning for some of the unrest there's anger shown by those joining the fighting this man says fighting for the u.a.e. earns a fraction of the money paid to those fighting for the saudis and with the currency worth so little now it isn't enough i don't know why we went out burning tires

face to face with unfamiliar prejudice when a job interview was terminated after she refused on religious grounds to shake the hand of her male interviewer she won her subsequent claim to the swedish labor court if you ask me this from a few years ago my answer would be that they are very accepting but. i am not sure i would answer the same thing because. i think that race is people that. are sowing themselves more and they are encouraged to so themselves more so people are not afraid to say i hate you because you're for us therefore i hate you because you're wearing the far right party that speaks for them these call to sweden democrats with neo nazi roots and its image cleaned up to appeal more broadly now this once fringe movement is poised to play
