stretches from the pacific ocean to debone tents and into the valleys. this is the old wall the new part is higher the razor wire was put up about fifteen days ago so now with the arrival of the caravan they harden the border. the fire one was added during the obama administration but asylum seekers are resilient and find new ways like through these water drainage pipes metal bars have been added on the american side but police say some just dug a hole and went in. seven hundred kilometers to the east and we are nogales it lays on both sides of the border with arizona i hear the war is part of the daily life along with the sad stories of tragic crossings this part was built on the george w. bush just an hour's drive away from the city and this is how the border looks like we haven't seen any patrol on our way here but anyone can just crawl underneath and
on the other side you're in arizona the real challenge is to reach this area that. it was once the territory of the apache now it's under control of its choppers seen a low a cartel. through here that javier takes asylum seekers on a long trek through the mountains into us he's been doing this job for more than twenty years. it's the same people on the other side they give us the green light to move but it has changed a lot before the journey took three to four hours and ten years later it was fifteen to twenty now we can take four or five days it's a big deter it used to be a straight line. these rugged mountains are used to smuggle drugs and people both are done in close coordination but not at the same time. could take leaves people trafficking is a business that involves many on both sides. you have bad guys
on both sides are no border guards who kept migrants in their homes or put them in the cars and let them go and i saw this happen so build one wall or two walls people will continue to cross and we will continue providing our service. a fortified border added personnel a new technology has slowed the movement of asylum seekers over the past two decades it will take the border in a war to stop it all together. along the mexican us border. the un rights chief has denounced democratic republic of congo security forces for targeting the opposition days before tense presidential election on thursday a teenager was shot days as an opposition rally in the central kasai region it brings the total number killed at opposition rallies this week to six separately a fire has destroyed thousands of voting machines and electro material at a warehouse in kinshasa voters head to the polls on december twenty third to choose
a successor to president joseph kabila. if europe it will begin moving its troops from the board with eritrea in the latest sign of warming relations between the east african nations eighty thousand people died during the two year war between ethiopia and eritrea which ended in two thousand if you have his prime minister ahmed offered to withdraw the troops in september as part of a list of reforms ready transforming the political landscape in the horn of africa . british prime minister to resume a is insisting she can get the extra clarification she needs from the european union on her brics a deal to ensure it is passed by her own parliament it comes after occasionally he said discussions with the european commission president john claude younker who talks on our plans the e.u. has repeatedly said it will not move from its current position the main issue is the so-called backstop of the irish border which will become the only land border
between the u.k. and the e.u. after bricks it or them so what is the rather complicated box or currently both northern ireland and the republic of ireland are part of the e.u. single market and customs union which means goods and services are traded with few restrictions once the u.k. leaves the e.u. this will no longer be the case the worst fear is that a hard border will be formed to separate the two islands it forced by physical checks and infrastructures both the u.k. and a you want to avoid this so they've come up with a safety nets in the form of the buck stop a temporary arrangement which will keep the border open and free off restrictions in the event of a no deal crucially it will also protect the good friday agreement which ended decades of conflict known as the troubles. the has been reporting that the e.u. is not willing to consider any further clarification. the e.u. is clear as i am that if we are going to be for the deal this is it but my
discussions with colleagues today have shown that further clarification and discussion following the council's conclusions is in fact possible to speak now talk or florence leaves out that side be held as a parliament here in london so lawrence where exactly does the prime minister go from here having visited euro parable last couple of days. well i mean after all the fireworks of this week is going to be a bit of a hater's parliament i should explain it is deserted at the moment because all the m.p.'s are in their constituencies and so to reason he's got until monday now to figure out what he's going to say then to parliament when she has to address it and try to explain what she thinks she's achieved on her tour of europe over but over the middle of this week and the answer frankly in the opinion of most m.p.'s is going to be absolutely nothing should the data there when think she got anywhere at all in the same problem then will persist there talking about having a vote on her deal in mid january but if parliament still doesn't want her deal and
if parliament at the same time doesn't want to fall out of the european union with no deal then it's got to consider whether or not to have a second referendum and or suspend the entire process of leaving the european union and it's that utter lack of clarity from the british parliament side that led john claud younger there to the european commission to use the word nebulous or cloudy to describe parliament's thinking because i think frankly the european union is now absolutely fed up of the u.k. going back to all the time and saying you need to give us more when actually it's up to parliament now to decide what it wants to do but parliament simply can't make its own you know i'm basing the you can sit basically and say exactly what may contrive to do in the british parliament but it looks like deadlock. yeah and the thing is from the european union side it isn't as though brics it's the only thing that they've got to worry about you know fronts clearly is in a big mess at the moment italy and budget is a massive problem the way the hunger in government is behaving is very into
democratic to the european union and they're very worried about that they've got the european elections next may in the rise of the populists all of the continent to to preoccupy them as well and i just think they want the u.k. to get on with it and i think there is a view emerging that the frustration is not as though the e.u. from the leave the u.k. u.k. trying to leave the u. but keep going to the u.n. saying you need to make it easier for us to do it and so a calm really see whatever treason may have to say a press conference any particular reason why the e.u. would want to do anything else now because it's up to the u.k. to sort it out or and say in london thank you of course this market in the french city of strasburg has reopened today after the suspect in tuesday's attack was shot dead by police the french interior minister was there amid high security in the eastern french city the suspects sheriff cheshire cat was shot dead on thursday evening after opening fire on police a fourth person has now died after the gun attack several others were injured. and

representatives from almost two hundred nations continue their talks of how to implement the paris agreement or environment action nikolic has more from those talks and of each. so we were due to be out of here at six o'clock tonight but now they're making preparations for the conference to carry on into saturday people are even taking bets that it might go on into sunday but to be fair is not that surprising because these things often run late and this time around it's particularly complex remember delegates from one hundred ninety six nations trying to oversee the complexities of this paris rulebook to implement the paris agreement in two thousand and twenty three things they need to achieve to oversee how nations reduce carbon emissions the issue of climate finance especially for the more vulnerable nations and then to make sure the people do what they promise to do as a massive oversimplification is a lot more complicated than that and then you throw into the mix the perennial problem between the developing nations and the developed nations who shoulders the
