5:01 am
a lot worse from all. the work. today would be a good. u.s. senators prepared to vote on a bill to end the government shutdown. turkey's president promises to crush kurdish fighters as his military continues its air and ground operation in northern syria. at least six people die in anti-government protests in democratic republic of congo . and tensions rise as tens of thousands of refugees are set to be repatriated to me i'm from bangladesh. oh two hundred g.m.t. and the clock is ticking for senators in the us is the struggle to end the funding crisis that's kept the government shutdown for two days in the coming hours the republican controlled senate is expected to hold
5:02 am
a vote to try to break the deadlock money for federal agencies has been cut off since saturday after the senate failed to pass a funding bill and that's affecting a range of departments including passports and visas services immigration is the heart of the dispute democrats won funding tied to protection for undocumented migrants who entered the u.s. as children republicans and democrats have been blaming each other for the past but senate leader mitch mcconnell says it has to end now the democratic leader could end of today. we can get past this manufactured crisis and get on to a host of serious issues before the require thought for bipartisan negotiation this shutdown vote got a lot worse tomorrow a lot work today would be a good day to end americans know why the dysfunction is coming dysfunctional
5:03 am
president hence we are in a trump shutdown and party leaders who won't act without them it is created the chaos and the gridlock we find ourselves in today it all really stems from the president well my kind is joining us now live from washington d.c. mike are we still in the gridlock. well rob it would appear sir but there's some mixed messages coming out of the senate floor there are some republican senators saying that yes they think they're going to get the sixty votes needed when that vote takes place however other republicans saying it's very unlikely that the government is going to reopen so very much mixed messages but just to walk you back through the day you heard the level of the trill that was being exchanged by each side each side blaming the other for not being able to reopen the government but in the course of the day a group of some twenty four bipartisan senators got together to try and work out
5:04 am
a compromise this is from both sides both democrats and republicans sat down together they described themselves as moderate they came up with a compromise proposal we're not sure of what its content is as yet that has now gone to the leader of the senate to mitch mcconnell and his democratic minority leader within the senate chuck schumer they have been holding intense discussions it is reported they've been talking to each other to try and see whether this compromise will work where the democrats would agree to give in and actually add to the vote so that the supermajority that sixty votes can be achieved when the vote takes place in some four hours time but still no certainty that government's going to reopen at the beginning of this week mike we heard earlier on chuck schumer placing the blame for all of this directly at the door of president trying what can the president do to try to move the situation on. well the president's done
5:05 am
very little over the past forty eight hours today his participation in direct participation has been limited to the inevitable tweeted tweet of vitriol against the democrats who he said are tempting to hold the government hostage we have heard from white house members saying that the question of immigration will not be discussed with the democrats anymore and to all they stop as they comported holding the government hostage well the democrats are insisting that immigration is dealt with in the short term bill they don't want to tailed off any longer to get the whole of government reopened they are insisting that it be addressed in terms of the stopgap measure so we do have no direct participation from the president we do not know whether he's personally talked to republican leaders in the course of the day we do know because the white house has said that the chief of staff has been in
5:06 am
touch with both the leader of the house and the leader of the senate but there has been no attempt by the president in the past forty eight hours to reach out over the floor to members of the democratic caucus who support is utterly essential if as i mentioned those sixty votes the supermajority are to be gained and government is allowed to reopen rob mike i know we're going to be checking in with you is that vote gets closer but for now thank you very much indeed the u.s. is urging turkey to use restraint in its operation against kurdish fighters in northern syria turkey soldiers have entered the enclave of free in part of an assault to drive out kurdish peoples protection units or y p g turkey's president is vowing to crush the group which he views as a terrorist organization stephanie decker reports. the border echoes with the sounds of war turkey's offensive on africa is now well under way the ground
5:07 am
operation started on sunday turkish soldiers supporting free syrian army fighters inside syria. turkish president dredger type edges defiant as he addressed a large crowd in the city of course i believe. this is a national struggle and then this national struggle we will crush anyone who stands against us let this be known. it's been a week of rhetoric politicians promising that turkey was going to attack a free to rid of the y.p. g. kurdish fighters that i'm pro considers terrorists but they're also the u.s. is best ally on the ground in fighting i still regardless of international complications turkey is fully committed to this offensive we're on turkey's border with africa and throughout the day we've heard the sound of jets in the sky also intense artillery and machine gun fire outgoing from a turkish base behind that mountain although why p.g. are extremely well trained they know the terrain in turkey has superiority when it comes to the skies and that gives it
5:08 am
a huge advantage. belligerence here heard the airstrikes late on saturday as turkey started its offensive and they are a little uneasy. although most. here we are right next to the action with planes flying over our heads and there's a lot of shelling of course we are confident but at the end of the day anything can happen shells have already fallen in turkey so we are worried this could happen here. turkey says it will continue its operation until it's pushed the y p g away from its borders no one knows how long that will take what the implications may be. stephanie definitely here on the turkey series which are as much as the junk professor at george washington university he says the u.s. could turn a blind eye to the turkish military operation there's certainly a domestic component to all the rhetoric coming out of turkey and even here in washington there's an understanding of why president early one needs to conduct
5:09 am
this military operation in fact i would go as far as saying and there there might be even a tacit acceptance that as long as circus troops remain on the west bank of the euphrates river that washington might decide to look the other way and not come to the assistance of its kurdish allies on the ground now if turkey decides to cross the river to the east side that's a whole different story because that's where u.s. national interests are at stake i think washington after quite some time president trump coming into office articulated a syria policy one that aims to preserve u.s. gains in syria the u.s. had been involved in trying to push isis out and now that they have they want to hold on to the territory that they and their allies have and also to try and put some pressure on iran in syria financial pressure because they are rainy and spent up to fifteen billion dollars a year in supporting the assad regime and that territory that the u.s. is holding on to is very rich in natural resources including oil there's the
5:10 am
euphrates dam and there's also a very agriculture agriculturally rich land in that area so this is part of a broader geo political calculus for washington why they want to remain in that part of syria. at least six people have been killed and several injured following clashes between police and protesters in democratic republic of congo and government demonstrations were organized by leaders of the catholic church in the country they're angry at the delay in holding a presidential election after president joseph kabila as final term expired in twenty sixteen catherine sawyer reports. after a morning mass at the main catholic church in kinshasa washee pairs begin their latest protest march carrying tweaks their rosaries and bibles they are angry that a charge broke a political deal between the ruling and opposition parties that could have seen a presidential election held last december has not been on that they did not go far
5:11 am
police had blocked the road refusing to allow them to move forward and when the match is still their ground this happened. police and presidential guards against stone throwing protest as several people were killed others injured some with gunshot wounds to the obviously we have the right to much we were following the instructions of walk. it was a piece of protest but the police would not let us. in the east of the country police gas inside this church the service had just ended and the faithful are about to start their part asked several people here also injured oh no not one of the oh my god i don't respect people's rights kabila must go is even throwing tear gas into the church we will not accept kabila he must go his mandate is over. a new year's eve there was similar violent confrontations during demonstrations. this in the beginning of the. remember the killed six people in december and logically
5:12 am
people should have been afraid but it's the country that is happening now so this pressure is going to increase i don't know that the government stays the. the tests are easy charts he does and opposition politicians and ceased they will not give up their demand for change. this road in the city has now been cleared by police but it's still very very tense people here are very frustrated about the political situation and saying that they have lost confidence in the politicians in the political system and that's why we're looking more to the catholic church to provide guidance and leadership in this difficult political time. with a membership of close to half of the eighty million congolese population the catholic church is hugely significant and many people hope it may be the catalyst that will finally see a free fair and credible election without president joseph kabila in the running
5:13 am
catherine saw al-jazeera kinshasa every seven people have been killed in fighting with security forces in ethiopia the violence broke out during religious celebrations in the heart of a region worshippers etc fought with security officers during a procession for the christian festival of the epiphany. the taliban says it's was behind an overnight it's a hotel in the afghan capital which killed at least eighteen people got in the stone couple's intercontinental hotel on saturday night targeting foreigners and government officials and of a glass reports. explosions and gunfire lasted for hours as afghan special forces moved through the hotel guests trapped in their room new sheets and curtains to try to escape the attackers intent on bloodshed and murder. for the weekend there were people and children inside the hotel rooms the attackers were knocking on the door of a trimming to reach their targets they killed ordinary people and officials they were
5:14 am
targeting foreigners especially hard. as the fighting intensified and grenades and gunshots echoed around the hotel some could only wait for it to end his brother corey hussein was trapped inside and had stopped answering his phone to let it out with when he told me he locked himself in a room it's very difficult with a family member trapped inside it's tragic and painful it's unfortunate that these things happen it's not just him many other people are trapped and i hope to see him and i hope this fighting in our country ends. on the roof of the hotel afghan soldiers signaled the end of the fighting by waving an afghan flag almost immediately i call her from his brother he was safe. but marjon was not as lucky a visiting cousin had jumped from a hotel balcony she thought he was alive but couldn't find him in any hospital she says she looked all night before discovering who was dead. or alive it's difficult
5:15 am
here in afghanistan my cousin lived in holland for years he came here for just a week and this tragic incident happened oh as an afghan forces an international advisers left the area officials headed into the hotel to assess the damage and look for casualties and survivors this is an attack. that unfolded in the public eye live on t.v. and watched by hundreds on the streets the afghan president commended afghan security forces saying they'd done all they could to minimize the number of casualties he wants an investigation into how the attackers got into the hotel the question also is how they did so with enough weapons for sixteen hours to jennifer glass al jazeera. plenty more ahead on the news hour including all eyes are on hollywood's a list as this year's screen actors guild awards take on a special. hundreds of thousands turned out of pope francis mass in peru ending his
5:16 am
controversial tour of latin america. and in sports world number one rafael nadal remains on post for glory at this tribunal. a plan to repatriate hundreds of thousands of the hinge of refugees to me and ma is due to begin on tuesday the plan is to house them in camps until they're destroyed homes rebuilt bangladesh and memo agree to send back around seven hundred fifty thousand refugees who arrived since october twenty sixth seen over the next two years however many refugees are what about their safety if they return the un says the repacholi nations have to be voluntary james gomez is the regional director for southeast asia and the pacific at amnesty international he's joining us now from bangkok thank you very much indeed for being with us by dash is paying a significant amount of money to look after these refugees isn't it reasonable that
5:17 am
at some point they are going to try to find a solution and get the refugees back to me i'm all. yeah i mean you know they are you know trying to get the refugees. from our point of view this is problematic and premature because we are not clear about the fundamental conditions to which the refugees returning to because they have fled you know probably the risk to life destruction at the hands of the time a door in the right kind state and we said name sending them back to the same conditions so this is why the issue of voluntariness is important to ascertain although that document you know framing the return agreement and the physical agreement do make reference to the voluntary returns but do we need effective
5:18 am
oversight to determine if indeed these returns are voluntary here i think the role of the u.n. is important although the documentation you know that we have cited provides for the u.n. h.r. to cite lists of attorney but that is not good enough you know u.n.h.c.r. needs to be central to oversight the process to ensure that it is in indeed voluntary and it should have the mandate to you know. ensure that you know that if it's able to prevent or stop those returns that are not voluntary and this its role should not only be on the bangladesh side it also needs to play a part to determine the conditions on the myanmar side so therefore you know in this situation i think the returns that are you know. that are planned for the twenty third of january just simply too premature and to stage as i understand
5:19 am
it me and ma has said that the un's report was not going to be allowed to be in the region into iraq and stating to be able to monitor at least in the next few days in the short time what the situation is there what pressure then can the u.n. actually put on me and mine to allow people in to oversee this transition back to me and more. well i think it's not just the u.n. one thing the international community in total together with everybody else is concerned about the situation and needs need to extract transparency from myanmar i mean in this process of returns we are not clear what the. guys are going to return to we hear they are going to be interned in camps if this is the case then. similar to the. thousands of people already in. previous.
5:20 am
exercise so we need transparency we need clarity in terms of. where the guys would actually return to the original. lens and i will be able to farm them and seek a livelihood the problem here is you know the myanmar government is just you know throwing a blanket over everything so we need to ensure the u.n. fact finding mission actually get sent more importantly i think for both sides whether it's me and more bangladesh the voices of the rowing there has to be any decision affecting the community must be central to running this participation without the rowing the voice being heard about decisions about them then in their court out and i think this is part of the problem james gomes is from amnesty international we appreciate your time thank you very much indeed. dozens of
5:21 am
women have gathered at a football stadium in us vegas on the second day of global demonstrations against an equality. the rallies are also being held to mark one year since the u.s. president's inauguration many are not only supporting women's rights but also denouncing president trump's views on issues including immigration abortion and l g b t rights. hollywood's elite is set to tackle the industry's growing sexual harassment scandal at the screen actors guild awards ceremony is now underway in los angeles it's a female powered affair with women presenting all thirteen awards to honor the past two years acting achievements. our correspondent rob runnels joins us now from outside the shrine theater and los angeles rob first of all who are the contenders for the top acting awards. well the first i want to mention robert you hear some loud noise around me it's because there are work crews real show business

5:23 am
lead actor in a in i'm in a motion picture it's a wide open field you have frances mcdormand who played this indomitable force of nature in three billboards you have judy didn't she was always a perennial favorite playing the aging queen victoria in victoria and abdul you have the young irish actor for instance a sitter show ronan played an amazing the version of a young teenager coming of age in sacramento california very sensitive portrayal and there are others as. well so that. category is pretty much why the lot of. people think that frances mcdormand is going to get the. in the mail movie and in that category lead actor in a motion picture it seems that most people think it is been wrapped up by gary

5:26 am
city of lima and the pope has talked about many different things throughout the trip but what he didn't talk about here was the abuse cases that happened to it but the majority of people said they did not expect the pope to talk about the sex scandals and rather to talk about peace which is what many peruvians want. foreign ministers from latin america and china are meeting in chile for a two day summit that will focus on trade but leaders of the thirty three members of the latin american and caribbean community want to make sure that relations with china go beyond its appetite for commodities are america editor in the sea and human has this reports. chilean cherries juicy sweet and above all red intensely red in china it's believed the color brings good luck especially when marking the chinese new year next month hence the insatiable demand

. pope francis has concluded his tour of south america but the final mass in lima more than a million people gather to cue the pontiff and police capitol the trip has been overshadowed by a sex abuse scandal in chile. u.s. vice president mike pence is in israel as part of his middle east tour where prime minister benjamin netanyahu has called him a great friend the trip follows his visit to jordan and egypt over the weekend tense mentioned he and jordan's king abdullah agreed to disagree on donald trump's decision to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital in december how the faucet reports from occupied east jerusalem. on the second leg of his regional visit the u.s. vice president was keen to offer assurances to a major middle east an ally and by extension to the palestinians who refused to meet him on the issue of jerusalem we are committed to continue to respect jordan's role as the custodian of holy sites that we take no position on boundaries in final
5:34 am
status those are subject to negotiation and and as i think clearly you are the president make clear the world united states of america remains committed if the parties agree to a two state solution through the arab world's public outrage with a recognition by u.s. president donald trump object to slim is israel's capital the jordanian king offered a conciliatory tone in your visits here i'm sure is to rebuild the trust confidence in not only how we move forward two state solution on us drew forth next sixty seven lives and he's jewish but as a capital opening up and a palestinian state but living side by side with a secure recognizes ready course for internationals he said that's far from the line being taken by the palestinian leadership its president mahmoud abbas declaring that the u.s. had given it the slap of the century reiterating his position that the u.s. could no longer be involved in the peace process the u.s. vice president isn't meeting the palestinians but he does have
5:35 am
a message publicly apparently tailored towards them reiterating u.s. support for a two state solution if that's what both sides agreed to of course for the palestinians that message is entirely overshadowed by what donald trump said over a month ago declaring that the u.s. view jerusalem as israel's capital. but many of the messenger himself is part of the problem the shift in u.s. policy with which pence was closely associated was welcomed by his evangelical christian base many of whom believe the return of the jews to the holy land is a precursor to jesus' second coming their bands has there and gender that is extremist fundamentalist looked. christian absolutist idiology which goes against all the beliefs and commitments of the arab and palestinian christians and particular and they feel that they have been betrayed by somebody who is kneeling. to mend this injustice using village an as a justification for israelis it's
5:36 am
a different picture hence represents a u.s. administration that recognized what they see as an uncontroversial reality jerusalem status is the capital of your view. a great friend of the state of israel arrives here this evening a true friend united states vice president mike pence we welcome him here and i'm looking forward to our discussions we will discuss the trumpet ministrations efforts to hold iran's aggression the iranian nuclear program and ways to advance peace and security in the region. before leaving jordan for israel pence visited u.s. troops didn't undisclosed location on the syrian border telling the president had the back and that isis would be driven from the earth very soon his next speech will be to the israeli parliament the knesset on monday israeli palestinian representatives have vowed to boycott the event a mass. how does era occupied east jerusalem. well in a few hours businesses in gaza will go on strike to protest about the failing
5:37 am
economy economists have asked citizens living abroad to send money to their families in the hope of reviving it but unemployment is still at a record high as israel's blockade continues for an eleventh year and has more from gaza city. on monday this busy shopping district will all silent as workers and businesses join the strike and it's not just here shops factories restaurants and hotels are all expected to take part across the gaza strip. doors will close machines will be turned off and work will stop from eight in the morning to six hours the strips of main commercial organization called the strike. we wish through this strike send the message to our leaders our plate is international leaders and to the united nations the gaza strip will collapse in and we need immediate help if the economy collapses he will have impacts everywhere health education and whole services. business men are listening and they want to take part
5:38 am
they say things are getting desperate and there's no money in the economy. all god's eye will be closed we will be on strike and we want the will to listen to know our suffering and help us to find a solution is reaching breaking point. but any impact of the strike outside of gaza is likely to be small without the international community and the world are going to listen or not but i think this is a direct message to israel who is besieging and locating the gaza strip to pay attention to what is happening in terms of the humanitarian crisis that is happening here in gaza for more than ten years the gaza strip has been under siege by israel it controls what gets in and out and restricts everything from consumer goods to construction materials is all says it won't lift the siege on gaza until hamas now mass used to rule the strip up until recently but now it's under the
5:39 am
control of the palestinian authority and i says it won't disarm until the end of the occupation now the strike is likely to have an impact only have an impact on israel it's unlikely because of the hard line position they take him on card al-jazeera gaza city germany's social democrats have given the green light to formal coalition talks with chancellor angela merkel's conservatives party delegates narrowly approved this step at a conference in bonn michael's been unable to form a government since the elections in september when it came reports. it was a vote with profound implications for the social democrats for germany and perhaps the e.u. by a clear but not necessarily large majority martin schulze now has the authority to enter formal negotiations with anglo american the platform slogans proclaimed a new time needs a new politics but on offer was much of the same old government in a wide ranging speech should spelt out why another coalition with miracle was the
5:40 am
best option. believe me this hasn't been easy for anyone but i never doubted for a moment that we should follow the player the president tried to as their way out of this difficult political situation as a social democrat here's my firm conviction that in this exceptional situation we must at least try to provide the best possible outcome for the people of germany and the euro. but many in the hall and in the wider party did not agree perhaps the most vocal opposition came from the party's youth movement lloyd has been absolutely i'm sure people negotiated well it's a reason i and many of those in and outside this room are not happy with the results it's not because they did bad work but because after twelve years of anger michael and eight years of grand coalition we no longer have the same views on resultant issues this conference is opens up some very clear divisions inside this party between the party leadership and the rank and file between those prepared to compromise and those who aren't and between the younger generation and the older
5:41 am
one some analysts believe the current leader has to bear responsibility for the last bit of what we see it is that he is very good support for market choice and not just as clearly he is. not a party look at the us and our future i would say i would actually even call him a yesterday's man as of today and yet as of tomorrow schultz will be the leader who takes his divided party formally into negotiations with the christian democrats but the final deal which then emerges must be passed by a ballot of the entire party membership and if sunday's vote is anything to go by that may not be easy dominic cain al-jazeera bomb. has welcomed yesterday's decision to go ahead with coalition talks and she says they'll start as soon as possible. for us it's important in the coalition talks that germany has
5:42 am
a stable government that can deal with the issues facing us in the future may be key issues include economic strength especially the necessary changes that we need and it's age as the foundation for social justice and security the negotiations will be within the framework of the preliminary agreement already reached with the social democrats many issues remain to be resolved in detail and that's sure to require intensive discussions. thousands of people are taking to the streets in northern greece to call for the republic of macedonia to change its name protests to say their neighbors can use macedonia as is also the name of a greek province the two countries have been locked in dispute over the name ever since macedonia declared independence from yugoslavia in one thousand nine hundred one greece's objections have left macedonia without an officially recognized name that means the country can't join international organizations like nato. at least one person has died in fighting between protesters and police in honduras as
