it's for sale should it belong to the local community or a wealthy man or. syrian warplanes have launched an offensive on the rebel held province of killing at least twenty people women and children are among the dead want to say the jets targeted a market and that a hospital treating people who were wounded in an earlier strike meanwhile russia is hosting a new round of talks in sochi aimed at ending the war the un is there but the main syrian opposition group says that it's boycotting the negotiations until president bashar assad's forces and the russian are lies stop the violence the kurds who control almost twenty percent of syrian territory also not attending there the focus of the turkish military operation in africa and in northern syria ankara says
the kurdish fighters terrorists al jazeera stephanie decker reports now from the town of killis on the turkey syria border there's just been incoming from syria into turkey we were actually preparing for a live when we heard a whiz over our heads. and then we saw the smoke landing around five hundred meters from our position well the police have now come to inspect the crater this is a reminder of course that this is an active conflict and there are consequences for these border towns these border cities cholas has had rockets and shells land here before also the honey on the other side of the border but people that residents that we've spoken to here will tell you that they are concerned they're used to it because i saw was here just a couple of years ago along the border and there was this kind of tense situation as well but one gentleman we spoke to yesterday said he was worried and he was ready military wife and children away you could see people are tense and they want
us to move on or let's hear now from al-jazeera story challenges in sochi with the latest round of talks on syria taking place. well the news earlier on monday the another group of opposition figures who's going to be staying away from sochi really exposes i think the short comings of this congress russia has tried to make this as inclusive as possible inviting people and groups from across the syrian cultural religious and political spectrum so the robot is here there are these there are sunnis and shias allo whites and various different political platforms including the moscow platform the rest on a platform but there are a few notable exceptions now those are the s.n.c. the syrian negotiation committee which has said that it will stay away from sochi believing that this is undermining the geneva process the kurdish groups such as the y. p.g. then not here either they are considered persona non grata by turkey and of
essentially being shut out i don't think they want to come anyway because of what's going on in africa and so this all basically steers towards the moscow and damascus perspective on the syrian conflict the upshot of this congress is likely to be the endorsement of the new what they're calling a constitutional committee made up supposedly all of the syrian government on one side and opposition representatives on the other but if the main groups of the opposition are not here then this allows damascus to essentially say that the opposition groups boycotting sochi boycotting this process are saboteurs of peace the big question of course is where the u.n. stands on the of this and whether stefan de mistura will approve of these measures and not allow this to filter in to the geneva process the russians believe that he
is on board the left is wait to see whether the u.s. that suggest that is confirmed or not. to the us where the deputy director of the f.b.i. has resigned weeks before his official retirement date the us president has repeatedly criticized andrew mccabe for political bias donald trump accuses him of favoring his rival hillary clinton during the twenty sixteen presidential race the cable's resignation comes a week after u.s. media reported that the president wanted him gone the white house has denied having any involvement with mccabe stepping down we've seen numerous ports as all of you have and any specifics i can tell you none of this issue is made by out of the white house any specifics i would refer you to the f.b.i. president wasn't part of this is you making process and we would refer you to the f.b.i. where christopher ray serves as the director which as i said last week and i'll
repeat again today the president has full confidence in him and has put the decisions at the f.b.i. in his hands life out of washington alan fischer is there so why did mccabe step down early was it his decision or was he pushed for something changed in the last twenty four forty eight hours christopher ray who is the director of the f.b.i. said that he wasn't going to fire mccain he wasn't going to move his position now according to the new york times down early was it his decision or was he pushed. well something changed in the last twenty four forty eight hours christopher ray who is the director of the f.b.i. said that he wasn't going to fire andrew mccabe he wasn't going to move his position now according to the new york times across his desk came a report from the inspector general which talked about how the hillary clinton investigation into a private use of an e-mail server was handled was certainly part of that
investigation in its initial stages until you recused himself according to the new york times mccabe was then told look we were thinking of moving year to another part of the f.b.i. deputy director number two in the organization he saw that very much as a demotion and then said well look i'll just go no and retire in march eighteenth as i'm jus to do and that seemed to be accepted by christopher re certainly donald trump has been attacking andrew mccabe over the last few weeks because of his links to his wife obviously because his wife ran for a post in virginia. as a democrat received some contributions close to seven hundred thousand dollars from people who would be considered very close clinton allies donald trump believing that this proves his narrative that there is bias in the f.b.i. for the investigation suggested that he should perhaps leave so elusive mickey was continuing or keen to continue all the way through to march when he would retire
until early on monday morning when he was presented with the idea of move or leave and he decided to leave so what are the implications of this on the investigation into alleged collusion between the truck campaign and russia. well donald trump has been trying to build this narrative that the whole thing is a figment of the democrats' imagination that they're very upset at losing an election they thought they were going to win particularly against a candidate like donald trump and therefore they have tried to influence the robert miller investigation no don't trump should have nothing to do with this investigation but we nor from various media reports has put pressure on the attorney general has put pressure on the justice department he's put pressure on the f.b.i. he's even fired the director of the f.b.i. and said it was because they he wouldn't drop the russian investigation so the mccabe thing still has got some way to plea out no it won't get
a great deal of attention come tuesday here in washington even though it probably should but that's because washington the both parties and the president or turn their attention to the state of the union late on tuesday night but you can understand that there will be people who will be asking questions about mccain's departure and whether or not this actually does indicate there was a bias in the investigation or whether this is donald trump trying to obstruct justice one more time and many thanks i was there is alan fischer there live in washington island's government has agreed to hold a referendum later this year on liberalising abortion laws the last catholic country has some of the tightest restrictions in europe on abortion it's currently banned in all cases except where there is a specific threat to the life of the mother due to pregnancy the referendum is show jeweled from maine peace talks with iran rebels in colombia have been called off because of a series of bombings at the weekend president juan manuel santos has blamed the
marxist rebels for the attacks on police stations in three cities the breakdown of the year long dialogue comes eighteen months after the president secured a deal with colombia's much larger fuck guerrilla group out of sons of m.p.'s he has the latest from bogota. the decision by president santos to suspend the talks became inevitable after this latest string of attacks in particularly the bombing of a police station in a major city by one key on the coastal city of about and yet is seen as the last straw for the government of a situation that has been deteriorating since the end of what had been a very successful cease fire between the government and this rebel group in the last three months of two thousand and seventeen but then the year land started a new offensive in different parts of the country and this latest string of attacks really left the sons those with no option but deciding to suspend the talks these
and there are a lot of pressure also by opposition politician conservative politicians here in the country who are asking him and to the talks with the yellin for good in a statement the rebels group to say that they hope that the talks can restart and said they favor a new cease fire but the attacks will continue unless and you cease fire brokered to which. in turn will make even more difficult for the talks to start again. thousands of workers from the u.n. agency for palestinian refugees have been protesting in gaza against planned budget cuts and follows the us his decision to cut millions of dollars worth of funding to the aid agency in iran calm reports from gaza. this was one of the largest demonstrations gaza has seen in recent months the union organizing says thirteen thousand people turned out palestinians are angry that the u.s.

of uncertainty over clooney as the rhythm out there with the need to do that and when you can call it the kind of peace through which the male voice can be defeat the tempo the struggle of the night at this time on al-jazeera. are again the top stories this hour on al jazeera syrian warplanes force an offensive targeting the rebel held province of killing at least twenty people wanted to say the jets hit a market that a hospital treating people who were wounded in the earliest strike the deputy director of the f.b.i. has resigned ahead of his official retirement date the u.s.

cities this is befehl power also when it's been temporarily shut down because of the already found one that monkey that was not from the sioux but lived in the surrounding area infected with the yellow you very very mean that the virus is already here and that's why the government has stepped up efforts to vaccinate people living in the area hundreds of other monkeys have already died across brazil in the last year as the virus has spread but in so paolo and rio they generate they are not enough vaccines for everyone if i jean could not protect her family she said i want it was really busy when i arrived people were queuing for five hours and they told us it was over no more vaccines i have to come next week in my the other members of anderson's family have been inoculated yellow fever has already left this family shattered the government's priority is to prevent the virus from

part to support from rural communities where the steel industry still clings on donald trump flipped the state in twenty six to the collapse of the industry was devastating but u.s. steel's clapton coke plant remains the largest coke plant in the u.s. and at the local john mclaughlin explains that it was to safeguard the plants future but he voted for trump under every president we've taken a hit republican democrat and the trade agreement both parties have to agree to it i wanted something different donald trump was clear when he was campaigning we're going to bring he'll back. and trump won here because of his stated opposition to trade deals that lead to a block of cheap imported steel and his pledge to investigate whether the u.s. is reliance on steel imports is a threat to u.s. national security but a decision on that may still be several months away the white house is reported to be split on the issue at the claire de niro hall there's disappointment not least because while the white house has
a tate's steel imports have soared i thought it would have been done in middle summer make a decision but overseas they know this might become an artist dump and even more will are jones didn't vote for trump we're still flatline like not i mean since the election but then he never trusted trump he was willing to retain some hope that hasn't yet been justified i'm not sure other than you know money but money. now for the top. several times over the last year and all trump has touted his job creation skills only for job losses soon to fall or the most infamous example is the carrier factory in indiana carry well never leave but since then hundreds of workers have quietly been laid off from the plant as jobs moved elsewhere one of them from ski is the president of the clinton branch of the united steelworkers who seems to be his nature you know saying.
there's still hope in the moment valerie but having been failed by both the democrats and republicans in the past if trump's words turn out to be empty they say it's nothing new but you have to remember one thing we've been promised a lot of things over the years nobody has ever come through with the progress has been pledged to revitalize communities here in the mom valley with ambitious plans to refashion them as hubs for twenty first century jobs but by pledging to return them to a heyday not seen for seventy years for many here it was worth a try however improbable. zero the moment vali pennsylvania. more than one hundred migrants have been rescued off the coast of libya after they became stranded trying to cross the mediterranean in dangerous sea conditions the country's coast guard said the group which included women and children were brought to a naval base in tripoli for medical treatment and will later be transferred to a detention center in the city in kenya the head of the fire department in the country's capital has been suspended after
