6:00 am
>> announcer: this is al jazeera. welcome to the newshour, i'm darren jordan from the news center in doha. these are the top stories. >> we are still in a state of law, and the key aggressor is russian. ukraine stays vladimir putin wants to take over his country. >> shelling intense fizz in the east of -- intensifies in the east of ukraine for control of donetsk air force. building the coalition against the islamic state group,
6:01 am
the secretary of state john kerry is in egypt. pakistan rescue flood survivors, but thousands are trapped. no longer child play - why kids in columbia have lost their playground to convicted criminals. welcome to the programme. there's supposed to be a ceasefire in ukraine. over the past couple of hours the airport in donetsk and the east has been under attack. ukraine's prime minister has been saying that his country is still in a state of war. it has been warned that voout reason wants to take over his country and recreate the soviet union. robin is in donetsk. what do we know about the attack on the airport in donetsk where you are, and what does it mean for the ceasefire? >> we have been hearing loud explosions in the distance, consistently throughout the
6:02 am
night, and now into this morning here in donetsk, where the airport, which we believe is the tart - we can't confirm it -- target - we can't confirm it at the moment, because it's too dangerous to get close. we believe it is the target, because the airport has been held by ukranian forces. obviously strategically important to the u.n. dpr, donetsk people's republic, as they call themselves here. they need control of the air force to be up and functioning and for supplies to come into to the city. the ceasefire that has been in place for several days is under question. this is not the first time this has been going on, throughout the last few days. we hear these barrages of what appear to be artillery fire, grad rockets or mortars are not just at the airport but other
6:03 am
locations the ukranian authorities are claiming, where they have their troops and forces, and at various checkpoints against the apparent line of control between ukranian forces and the donetsk people's republic. the rebel army here in east of the country. >> this comes off the back of a strong statement by the ukranian weren't arseniy yatsenyuk that vladimir putin wants to recreate the soviet union. it's strong, isn't it? > yes, one could say fighting talk, i suppose, from arseniy yatsenyuk speaking to an international audience in kiev, where they've been holding a summit about ukraine's future and investment here. and what he's reiterating, really is it that they believe
6:04 am
russia has a strategy to create a corridor. take territory from the south of the xuntry, linking -- country, that would link up a breakaway territory in the east, with crimea, which was annexed by russia this year, and beyond that, all the way to moldova, to transitoria, another territory that is a breakaway region of the country which has been supported by the russian military and financially backed. n.a.t.o. is the only force that saved us, and we need to ask them for their military support, and, of course, that is something that n.a.t.o. members within the alliance have said that they will - they are not prepared to do or go that far. we realise that the same time as all of this, there is
6:05 am
compromise, there are negotiations. we haven't heard so much about the president. we know that the e.u. is trying to work to come up with an arrangement of formula where all sides were happy. >> thank you robyn. >> now, the u.s. secretary of state arrived in egypt, where he'll try to shore up international support in the fight against the islamic state group. 10 arab countries agreed to help. in turkey john kerry ruled out iran joining the coalition. >> no one called me and asked me with respect to the presence of iran. but i think under the circumstances, at this moment in time, it would not be right for any number of reasons. it would not be appropriate given the many other issues on the table, and their engagement,
6:06 am
syria and elsewhere. >> shia militia's aligned with iran have been fighting in northern iraq. now al jazeera learnt that some of the militia has been carrying out revenge attacks. from northern iraq here is sue turton. >> shia militia checkpoint in an arab sunni area. we have been told me from this group are looting and torching villages after residents allowed islamic state fighters to hide out. in my opinion days earlier the militia welcomed us into town. they fought alongside the army and the peshmerga to break the siege. the atmosphere is different. a pick-up truck blocks the exit. >> we have been trying to
6:07 am
negotiate our way through the shia militia cheg point. there are peshmerga fighters. it's clear the shia militias make the decisions and they are reluctant to go through. we are trying to get to film a village they have flattened and torched. one that used to have sunni arabs in it. >> eventually they let us through. the sunni mosque was shelled. we arrive in the sunni village. it's deserted. houses have been torched. one is smouldering. >> the peshmerga has a position close by, but they are pulling out, leave the militia in control. the commander says his me respect the arab sunni health they set up camping. >> we are giving our life to unite iraq, to protect all people's property. others are not doing this. in particular the organization. this is not acceptable.
6:08 am
>> the peshmerga has been house to house dismantling improvised fighters. this one had command wires buried under the road. they found explosives left under a toilet seat. >> the peshmerga escort takes us to a nearby town, where they tell us the shia fighters beheaded a sunni arab resident. >> when we witnessed it and made it angry, we cannot step this. they told us we'll fight you. we ordered them to stop. they promised to do so. >> the shia militia don't take orders from them. they filmed this man. he is giving orders in iranian farsi. the commander witnessed iranian fighters alongside the iraqi shia. as the president announces an expansion of air strikes, he risks allowing the shia militia of taking control of more and
6:09 am
more sunni arab territory. >> it's nothing to win the hearts and minds. >> we are joined by helped, in erbil. john mentioned several players in her report. we have the peshmerga fighters, the kurds allege that a shia militia, the brigade persecuting sunni militias for harbouring fighters. iranian fighters are helping and giving orders to the militia. are we closer to foeing if the allegations are true. what is the response from the shia side? >> what we know is what we have reported, and that is what we have been told by the various fanctions. we know -- factions, but we know there's concern by the iraqi forces that there is retribution after some of these incidents. we have a statement, which i'd like to read from you, from
6:10 am
kareem alnoury, a spokesman for the northern iraq command and he says:. >> we do know that that's concern in baghdad about the perception that there's a sectarian element to what is going on. we know that the government has been trying to ease the tensions by restructuring the army. they have done that so that the national guard is taken from local units, that means in western anbar province. you would have a largely sunni force policing an area in which you have largy sunni population, as one way in which the new administration of haider al-abadi has been trying to
6:11 am
resolve these - to cool the sectarian tensions. are there examples of kiddish, sunni and shia fighters worki working together to fight the islamic state group. >> absolutely, in northern iraq in the area sue was covering, we have covered peshmerga troops fighting alongside other fighters. that happened throughout iraq. as a matter of fact, i was at the front line yesterday talking to kurdish peshmerga troops preparing to make a move on mosul. and the peshmerga forces say before they go in, they want a more representative force, they want some kind of diplomatic and political element to reach out to the sunnis who live in that town. they are concerned about going in and being perceived as a more or less foreign force, there is
6:12 am
concern around iraq about that. it's not clear whether some of the incidents that we hear reported are isolated and whether they are systematic. >> just a final thought. what about the iranians here. the u.s. said now is not the time for iran to play a role in the coalition, but iran is already playing a significant role on the ground, isn't it? >> yes, the americans would like to minimise the iranian role. the fact is they are here. there was evidence of that, which sue and her team saw in collecting evidence for her story. we know that these groups have been involved in the fight. to some extent they have been welcome. they are contributing to the effort to combat the islamic state group. it is controversial. it makes it difficult to develop the coalition particularly when the united states and other countries are in negotiation with iran over the nuclear
6:13 am
talks. john hendren there in erbil in northern iraq. >> thank you. the indian army deployed 30,000 troops in rescue relief operations in indian-administered kashmir. >> the indian government is criticized for not doing enough to help the 130,000 rescued. 200 have died. >> pakistan's army is taking drastic action to save the punjabi city. kamal hyder is there for us now. thousands have been affected. tell us where you are and what is happening there. >> right now i'm about 8km away from the city. yesterday when we came to this location it was part dry. there was farmlands, orchards in
6:14 am
the distance, and we see the villages surrounded by water. it is taking a considerable effort to get the people strapped inside the houses or on the rooftops out of the area by boat or helicopters. the military is active. they've breached several dykes to relieve the pressure on the city. here on this high ground where i'm standing, it's an emergency situation. it's a place where all the villages are seeking protection we have seen self houses collapse. this particular flood is not going anywhere by the looks it of, and despite attempts by the military to divert the water, it appears the water is rising. in the past few hours, we've been able to meet people affected by the floods. >> reporter: people on the move. as the waters flow in from every direction, they are carrying
6:15 am
what ever they could sallage. everything else is left behind. >> they are only able to save themselves. that, too, with considerable difficulty. despite the hardships he's composed, sure i lost everything. allah is great. he'll give me more. the authorities are making desperate efforts to evacuate people from the ajoining villages. the attempt will be to save mule tan. it will be a big challenge. tens of thousands of people will have to be evacuated from villages such as these, which are now surrounded by water. >> not far away, it is set up to receive those. maybe they use this with children. to protect themselves from the sun. she lost everything, but is
6:16 am
lucky to be eye live. >> we are 14 members of a family who cannot sit in the tents. we have to eat. how will we earn now we have lost little that we have. >> they are told how the home collapses and is worried about the future. >> the government has given us tents. there is not enough food to eat. right now everyone wants to say what they can. these villages are building flood barriers. some came to the conclusion that it's better to get out while there is still time. for now the relief effort is not reaching the many thousands of pakistanis affected by the flooding. >> still to come. behind the smiles at the school year. children are traumatized by what
6:17 am
they saw in the war. they hit the ball into a pocket. we'll tell you how they recovered later in sport. now, the army reservists say they refuse to operate. 43 soldiers from an intelligence unit say they will not take part in any activity. some of their work prevent palestinians leading normal lives. a new school year is about to begin. this year it will be different. 26 schools are being used as shelters for tens of thousands whose homes were destroyed during the war. many need psychological help after witnessing so much violence. >> reporter: they run around and
6:18 am
sing patriotic songs about plip. this is not -- palestine. this is not a game. many children are traumatized by what they saw or felt. the private school is trying to take the young minds off the war before the new school year begins. children over gaza, including the students suffered during the war. in a child's mind they became shelters. they are trying to give them a chance to play. >> translation: we are happy today because children face terrible tas through the war and want to make the children happy. >> the schools in gaza are shelters for tens of thousands, fleeing the violence. al jazeera will attend the school, minutes after it was hit by the shells. 20 people, including three children were killed in the
6:19 am
attack. what is the situation here now? >> well, at this school preparations are made for the student to return in a week or so. more than 1,000 people seeking shelter here have been moved to another school down the road. >> 5km away we find a u.n. school. 800 people were here before 1,200 arrived in recent days. the israeli military destroyed the people's homes, and there is nowhere for them to go. there is no immediate plan for students to return here soon. >> we don't exactly know where the children are. they are not where they'd normally be. we have to do a soft roll out of the school. you can't have the children or the teachers show up on the first day of school and pretend itself normal. we need a soft roll out. a lot of psycho social activities, before we get into a structured learning environment. >> reporter: the right for the children to have an education
6:20 am
free of fear and uncertainty, the right to improve their lives and the lives of generations to come has been lost again. >> let's get an update on the ebola outbreak in west africa. in san siro, hospital workers treating patients are on trike. they work at the government hospital, treating 80 patients. a number of doctors in nurses died from ebola, and staff are complaining they hadn't been paid for two weeks. >> ashley is a photo journalist working for al jazeera in san siro -- in sierra leone and joins us on the line. we were looking at photos of the hospital, is there a chance medical staff will go back to work? >> medical staff have been asked to go back to work. the w.h.o., the national government and the united
6:21 am
nations have clubbed together - well yesterday afternoon, spoke to some of the leaders of the striking workers, and said, look, guys, go back to work for the weekend, please, and we'll talk to you on monday, we'll send a representative out to talk to you on monday. the strikers are not convinced that that will happen, and i understand today people are back at work, not everybody is back at work, but many have gone back to work, and they agreed that the priority of treating patients, there are more patients arriving, there's no way that patients can be left outside, and as happened yesterday, the world can be brought to a stand steel. people have a huge amount of compassion, they'll go back to work and admit new patients if new patients are arriving. the workers grievances, the fact that they have not been paid a dime in two weeks is serious. >> and in the meantime, what has happened to the patients who
6:22 am
effectively had been abandoned on the wards? >> well, people haven't been abandoned. what happened yesterday, which is why the situation deteriorated, is the workers were agitated, they are frustrated. i was told by a nurse at the siege, that some of the workers called ebola patients out of the high risk zone, into the low risk zone, which there are absolutely not supposed to do, because they are so contagious. they started to come out, but there are some working there, because the nurses are quite - they are professionals, they don't want to the strike. they managed to get the patients to go back inside. patients are not starving. conditions are very, very strained. but people centre the treat i went to, certainly yesterday are
6:23 am
under the impression that patients are starving. it's not true, but illustrates the lackful communication between the officials and the everything man on the street. people are frustrated and don't have the information about what is going on in these ebola wards. >> all right. ashley there in sierra lee i don't know. thank you. we'll check on the global weather with steph. looks like the philippines is in for a rough ride. >> that's right. it is going to go downhill. it's raining for many of us in the philippines. if we look at the satellite, there's a huge mass of cloud covering a huge area. almost all. philippines is under an area of cloud. for many it's raining heavily. the responsibility is thanks to a tropical storm. at the moment it's not too powerful. but they are working to the
6:24 am
west. it is going to intensify. by the time it makes landful we look at winds under 60 k/hr, making it the equivalent of a category 2. we are expecting land fall to be on sunday around 12 g.m.t. between now and then we'll see a lot of rain, and we are likely to hear reports about flooding. i think as we head through until sunday, we'll see the rest of the storm edged on that way, and gradually on monday it will begin to work its way away. by the time it clears, we expect some to see around 500mm of rain that will cause flooding and landslides. >> thank you. now, let's stay in the philippines because tuna fishermen are struggling to make
6:25 am
a living, squeezed by dwindling stocks, other competitors and tighter rules. we have this report. >> reporter: the highlight of this festival - a world record attempt at the largest amount of fish on display at one time. it looks impressive. highly prized, yellow fin and big-eyed tuna in abundance. trouble lurked below the surface. near skipper negotiates the sale of his catch. 50 tuna and 20 hard daysing caught by his crew, using single lines and hooks by traditional scifs. he is having to travel further for fish that are smaller. >> we go up to 200km to get our catch. the trawlers get small fish. that's why we can't catch the big ones.
6:26 am
>> the catch landed from the industrial scale fishing by trawlers and gets. maybe skip jack tuna for the industry. it will never reach maturity. traditional tuna men fear a collapse. >> judging from the size, the sizes are declining, always getting smaller. >> it is the same fear that led to the warning from europe. >> talk of an import is deeply worrying. nearly half of all the tuna court end up on the dinner tale. a ban hitting the city hard. >> the local industry is crying foul. saying the stringent standards of europe are virtually impossible to meet in this developing part of the world. >> if worse comes to worse, we have to look at another market.
6:27 am
we have to develop another market, putting us in the red card. >> meant to enforce standards, the action forces the philippines to look else where. the controversial mayor of toronto will not run for re-election. rob ford returned to work after attending rehab for cocaine and alcohol addiction. now he needs medical treatment for a tumor, his brother doug will take his place in the race to run the big city. a blaze in california spread to cleveland national forest and orange county, flames are moving up mountain slopes and evacuation orders are issued to home owners nearby. >> police and military forces in peru destroyed airstrips. it's part of a campaign to
6:28 am
destroy airways. >> they are rented out by locals to traffickers. tribes in yemen push for a deal to overcome years of distrust between shia and sunni. mothers mourn their missing children in el salvador, a most violent county in the world for youngsters. >> find out who is going to the final to face the u.s.a. the latest in the basketball world cup coming up. stay with us.
6:29 am
6:30 am
welcome back. the top stories on al jazeera - the ukranian military says it propelled an attack on donetsk airport despite a ceasefire taking place. kerry is in the lieghton meester trying to shore up international support for the u.s.-led fight against the islamic state group. >> shia militia denied they have been carrying out attacks on sunnis. they have been targetting for harbouring the state fighters. fighting intensified in yemen, where the government is conducting air strikes against shia. authorities say a senior commander was killed in a strike. the fighting a hurting civilians. >> yemen's fighters prepare to
6:31 am
shell houthi areas in the province. in this vast desert the army has a minor preps, and it relies on the battle hardoned militias. >> translation: the houthis are trolls. they are invading the land aring killing people and destroying the homes. the houthis and al-qaeda are the same. >> reporter: the tribes are trying to mediate a deal. there's a long history of mistrust. it's an obstacle both sides are unable to overcome. >> translation: the intense fighting undermined chances of a ceasefire. i'm working hard on a deal. civilians are caught up in the fighting. their houses were destroyed. hundreds had to fear from the area. the only son was killed, and her
6:32 am
house was destroyed. >> translation: my son was innocent, he was looking after his family. he had no political affiliation. the houthis arrested and tortured him. this region is one of the poorest areas of yemen, many that were forced out of their villages may have to wait for time. >> manhattan joins us live. hash am, as you reported, the fighting intensified. what is the long-term aim of the fighting, what do the houthis want. >> let me update you. there has been fresh air strikes carried out by fighter snets for half on our. there were reports that the army backed by progovernment militias are trying to push back the fighters, making advances to the
6:33 am
province, and also other areas. this is a crucial area for both parties, the houthis will like to expand their reach. it provides them action to where the oil and gas installations of the country, if they control the area, that would put them in a better position if they are to negotiate a political deal with the government in the coming days. >> talking about the possibility of some kind of deal, we know the government and houthi rebels are talking again in the capital. what do we expect to come out of the talks? >> there has been mistrust over the last few weeks between the parties. this is why the united nations envoy to yemens try to broker a deal. they say in general terms that is what they'd like to achieve. the president took prices by 30%. this time they want the houthis
6:34 am
to have political representation in the government and they will be taken into account as a growing political facts. for the time being, the problem is this. the president says i'm ready to go, but they want the houthis to pull out from the outskirts of the capital. and dismantle the camps. i don't want to be seen as offering concessions. the houthis say, no, we will maintain pressure and go ahead with the process until the deal is implemented. it remains to be seen whether they'll be able to overcome the details about whether or not the shipment in the process or not. >> hash 'em, thank you. let's return to john kerry's visit to egypt where they are looking to build support and we are joined here by a political analyst by the doha institute of
6:35 am
political analysts. egypt has agreed to join the coalition against the islamic state. what does john kerry want from them? >> i think the egyptian - indeed, they agreed to join the coalition. but they are trying to brand all islamists as terrorists. in fact, they are putting pressure on the americans to accept their definition of the muslim brotherhood as a terror organization. there's a difference between moderate and extremists. this is an issue that kerry is talking to jacob shapros on. this is a problem between egypt and turkey, as the americans are trying to list more sunni countries in this coalition, so they are having problems dealing with different concerns of the different parties. the turks don't like what the egyptians are doing, and the egyptians don't like what the turks are doing.
6:36 am
>> it's a tricky one. turkey has their own issues. there are a number of hostages which the i.s. is reported to be holding. are there downsides to egypt joining the coalition. >> i think egypt won't have a problem in joining the coalition. as i said. but the major concern is internal, rather than - the major concern is the muslim brotherhood, not the i.s., they want to join the coalition in order to try to have more allies. try to protect their own problems, try to convince the americans and others to have joined them in their own battle against the muslim brotherhood. >> it's an interesting point you make. doesn't kerry have a pr problem dealing with the same people in egypt who overthrew a democratically elected president. >> i don't think so. kerry from the beginning was against the policy. some elements within the obama
6:37 am
administration. it was tough on a military coup. for example, susan rice. she was against the military coup in egypt. john kerry, he did not really care. he was mainly concerned about having egypt as a u.s. ally, rather than being concerned whether the government of egypt is democratically elected or not. that was not a major concern for kerry from the beginning. i don't think he's having this problem. >> let me get a final thought. in terms of the wider issue of how washington is dealing with the islamic state group. is this a prime example of how obama's foreign policy failed, given the rapid rise of the group, and the struggle to contain them. >> absolutely. everyone is talking about americans coming too late to do something concerning the crisis in iraq. for the past few years obama was giving a blind eye to the
6:38 am
policies of nouri al-maliki in iraq. me knew for sure that he was adopting a sectarian policy in the country, eliminating moderate sunnis, especially the tribes in iraq. the americans, and the obama was trying to stay away interest the middle east until it was too late. now they are going to jump in. now, when the americans are doing something to crack down, i think many people in the region are not happy. many say the americans have been watching the drama in syria unfolding, leading to the killing of 200,000 syrians and doing nothing. the i.s. killed an american journalist. they are trying to do something. this will not be an easy task for the americans to go. >> thank you very much for your time. now, al jazeera continues to demand the release of its three journalists imprisoned in egypt. peter greste, mohamed fadel fahmy and baher mohamed have been detained for 259 days.
6:39 am
they are accused of aiding the muslim brotherhood, charges seen as politically motivated. they are appealing against the conviction. now, a new report by u.n.i.c.e.f. says el salvador is the world's most violent country for youngsters. 27 children and teenagers are killed, and many more disappear every day. we met a mother on a quest to find her missing son. >> this woman and her family are trying to find comfort. the family and neighbours pray and sing to god in the tiny home on the outskirts of the town. >> a religious celebration more meaningful. her son, 14-year-old, disappeared more than three years ago. >> translation: he was going to be introduced to a girl. he said "i'll be right back",
6:40 am
but never returned. >> reporter: every two weeks she takes a bus ride to the prosecutor's office. with no witnesses, they say there's no leads. >> translation: they tell me to be patient and bring them information. i don't know anything. many families and mother are the first line of investigators, looking for thousands that disappeared as a result of gang violence. most are poor. they are putting up a relentless fight. nearlily every day families come to stations like this, going to the morgue, looking for information about a lost relative. >> a great challenge is to get the information, and that comes from canning members under a witness protection programme. >> reporter: gangs have a code of silence, punishing those with desk. we ask why do they hide the bodies? >> these are things that only we
6:41 am
know. i can't explain it to you. it's a rule of the gang. >> reporter: the only forensic criminologist is willing to risk his life to find the dead. usually in gang-controlled areas. in 25 years he has exhumed remains in 830 grave sites. parents turned to him to find their lost children. they come to where he's working, hoping for news. >> they bring me pictures of their children when they wept missing, pointing out areas where they believed they could be buried. >> the families say the government abandoned them. >> we are taking the necessary measures to implement policies to respond to people. is there more to be done, of course. >> reporter: anna received threats from the gangs to stop looking for her elder son. he fled to the united states to
6:42 am
stay safe. she prays that her family will be protected and says nothing will stop her until she finds her missing sun. >> overcrowding at a prison in columbia caused dozens of inmates to be held at a playground. 40 criminals have been handcuffed to the playgrounds, to the d disapproval of the locals. >> we have this report from bogota. >> handcuffed to one another. dozens of prisoners spending weeks in the playground, turned into a makeshift gaol. a suspect of crimes ranging from petty theft to drug trafficking. they don't have any other place to put them in. they arrested and brought me here. this is not acceptable. they should have a place to keep
6:43 am
them. thank god my family helped with a tent. >> family members visited them on a daily basis. some play with their kids. >> translation: a camel, juices, drinks and an electric raiser. there's no buckets. >> many say the park is better than the actual gaol. >> we are better off here, it's so crowded inside, there are more dangerous people. at least our loed ones can visit us, where the suspects can be held. it can accommodate up to 40 people. there were over 70. some sleeping on the floor. police said they have no option but to keep everywhere else outside. for the people in the neighbourhood the situation is
6:44 am
inhumane. >> this is shameful. we have dangerous people occupying the chamber space. it is horrible. yesterday i saw some of them smoking weed in front of the police. columbia has been dealing with prison overcrowding. never before did it reach a critical point. >> translation: sints the start of the year we reached a high level of overcrowding. with 40,000 people, that's 60% over limit. the prosecutor's office promises it will resolve the issue in the coming months. in the meantime the kids will share their pork with prisoners. now, on sunday sweden will choose its next government, with immigration proving to be a talking point of the election campaign. there's about 1.5 million foreign born people out of a
6:45 am
population of 9.7 million. sweden will take in 80,000 asylum seekers. recent arrivals are from arab countries. it's the biggest influx of refugees that sweden has seen since the break-up of yugoslavia. >> reporter: in towndown stockholm political parties flirt with undecided voters. here, the sweetened democrats are the party trying to go mainstream. they want a 90% cut and are gaining traction. >> we are not racist people. but there is a limit to how much immigration a society can handle, concerning jobs, welfare, and i think that sweden reached the limit. >> sweden is the country with the highest per capita numbers in years. economic hard times led some to look for easy targets.
6:46 am
democrats got 5% of the vote. they think, and the polls suggest they may be right. they'll double that this time, giving them 40 seats in the parliament. making it the third-largest party, claiming it will give them the balance of power in negotiations over forming a coalition government. yards away the minister said he'll have nothing to do with them. >> we have been a superpower. we are proud of it. i would like to look kids in the eyes and say we'll give some backism. >> in the town, half the residents are immigrants and children. many are children, unemployed and feel isolated. for some, the chance to talk about immigration is a welcome change. >> it's time we speak about it. if you see problems, it doesn't
6:47 am
mean that the problems are the people coming here. maybe there are problems with the system, how we integrate the people. i think we can make a lot of changes in the process, which would be better for the swedes and the immigrants. >> reporter: the election will turn on the issues of mainstream economics, but something has changed. the scale and speed of immigration spawned a debate about it. not mistaken swedes want to shut the door, but the days of unlimited generations may be numbered. time for a short break. when we come back we'll have the sport. there's another pay day ahead for floyd mayweather. all the details in a moment. stay with us.
6:48 am
6:49 am
