5:03 pm

5:04 pm
well this is a volatile turkey a bolstering its positions along with the south on board and also preparing for what duties calling on all out offensive on the city of mum big which is under the control of the wife be deified is also on the move up to sixteen thousand rebels a city and the rebels who are allied to tucky who say they will take part in the offensive us well but it's the deployment of syrian government forces that these complicating matis they have not deployed to the city has proven by not only the residents but the u.s. forces and rebels we also know that they have created a buffer that stands. between divides the tukey forces and their proxies as well as the qods and they say this city of mumbai is under their protection so these other things that would need to be ironed out between russia
5:05 pm
and turkey we developed know whether these. after all going to go forward now with the invitation of the city and forces and them entering the fray but what we know is that they have been columns up on holmes of tongues moving across the board on tuckey wedding itself all of these cell phones mohamed thank you alexey klebnikov is a middle east expert at the russian international affairs council he says moscow and ankara they're looking to strike a deal on northern syria. i think that the bow of both sides russia in turkey they want to avoid any major light scale escalation on the ground so this is why both ministers foreign minister and defense minister came to discuss and try to reach a acceptable compromise. for all parties not only moscow and ancora but also for kurds for for damascus because the
5:06 pm
equation now is getting more and more complicated if we again if we take into account that americans really withdraw from from syria that it adds more uncertainty and unpredictability because that will depend on how kurds would negotiate with moscow and damascus on terms to be incorporated back under the damascus control which can sour potentially sour relations between moscow and on the security forces in egypt say they have killed forty people they're calling terrorist gunbattle it follows friday's attack on a tourist bus three foreigners on the egyptian guide died in that bomb blast just outside cairo it happened in the ancient primitives of giza as the latest. a burned out shell all the trimming support to a bus hit by a roadside bomb near cairo. we saw people carry the dead bodies some
5:07 pm
people brought the wounded inside an ambulance to take them to hospital and residents of the area helped carry the injured all of them were told. fourteen vietnamese tourists were on board when the bomb exploded in a district close to the giza pyramids in the hope that sometimes attacks such as this one can of course it may even happen again in the future and it isn't the country in the world where we can say is one hundred percent safe. tourists in egypt have been increasingly targeted as the government tries to suppress armed groups in the sinai peninsula tourism is key to egypt's struggling economy were you doing the signaling to the egyptian regime that they're moving out of their own territory and now attacking the very primary source of income for many egyptians that thirty percent of the economy goes to tourism within hours of the bombing the egyptian government published photographs it said showed some of what it called thirty suspected militants killed by security forces in raids in cairo's giza
5:08 pm
district egypt's government says the men had been planning attacks on tourists and state institutions a further ten armed fighters are reported to have been killed in the north of the sinai peninsula i think a lot of people will be asking how is it that within hours of this attack this large number of suspects was not only identified but in gauged in successfully killed if the intelligence within egypt is that good why were there not able to detect and disrupt this attack the remaining victims of the blast are being treated in hospital meanwhile investigators are trying to work out hello to his bus could be bombed egypt's heavily secured capital rob matheson al jazeera the u.n. says who the rebels in yemen are redeploying and had data as part of a cease fire deal agreement was signed in sweden earlier this month all parties are opening up routes to allow aid through starting with the data to some of the road
5:09 pm
and the salaries of all civil servants and data but finally it paid this month it's people in the yemeni city of tire these are calling on the local government to give them better security hundreds of people rallied in the center of the city protesting against a number of killings they say gangs are working in the province which is the cause of instability they want local authorities to crack down on criminal groups operating in the area. staying in yemen saudi forces fighting there using child soldiers that's according to interviews given to the new york times thousands of young men from sudan have reportedly been recruited to fight with the promise of a ten thousand dollars salary the report says more experienced fighters on the tribal militia in darfur once known as the jonjo weed are also fighting in yemen and lead deployments that witnesses say sudanese soldiers are often ordered to the front lines of saudi and immorality offices remain in safer areas. greece is demolishing thousands of illegal buildings an effort to bring the rule of law to
5:10 pm
the construction industry because governments have tended to avoid the issue even offering periodic honesty's to illegal properties because imposing the law is seen as a vote loser as john zarrella tells us that's all changing. the bonuses have lived on this spot for almost thirty years and that's how long it took over thirty years to evict them for trespassing on public land their mobile home has been condemned and so has their chicken coop but on demolition day authorities allowed them to move their home to legally rented land instead of destroying it. on the other side of athens another owner is less fortunate this holiday home is being torn down because it is on designated forest land the forest burned down thirty three years ago and while governments failed to replant a number of homes sprang up now the government is carrying out demolitions that have traditionally been put off after that. there are legal buildings everywhere
5:11 pm
the mistake is that they were demolished when they were built after all these years it might be the right thing to do but people spend their lives there they suck money into their homes and no one told them they couldn't connect water and power because they were legal they always kept the utilities before elections to natural disasters caused this policy change floods caused by heavy rainfall last year drowned at least two dozen people west of athens in addition to trespassing the bonuses position their home in the wrong place at the confluence of two river beds where the flooding began and last summer a wildfire fanned by strong winds killed one hundred people on the east side of the city in a community made entirely of the legal homes on wooded land this house is one of thirty two hundred illegal structures being felt across the greater athens area many of these demolition orders have been pending for decades but the government says it will now execute. and many thousands more nationwide the question is whether this sudden outbreak of lawfulness will send the message home and prevent
5:12 pm
future illegal construction some people believe these demolitions are just a continuation of greece's permissive legal culture in which people have paid to legalize homes retroactively this dawned on me mobi the new construction code does not legalize the most serious offenders it allows them to pay a fine and hold on to their legal property for another thirty years they are effectively paying a long term lease to keep the state off their back after that they don't know what will happen that the system is completely fluid the government is now deepening the dry riverbed where last year's flooding occurred it is also pushing the building permit in process online in an effort to curb corruption but in a country where many structures were built without due process both of these measures may not amount to much jump zero plus al-jazeera athens all right time for a short break here al-jazeera when we come back pushing to make sure that you did not die in vain voters using the election in the democratic republic of congo to
