2:01 pm
debates a citizenship bill that many say discriminates against muslims. now the world anti doping agency has banned russia from the next olympics and football world cup the committee met in switzerland to impose a 4 year ban on russia using its flag and team names from a range of sporting events that means some athletes could compete under a neutral flag a government sponsored doping scheme was revealed 5 years ago let's get more on this now and bring in our sports correspondent lee wellings he joins us from london so. how. is this ban towards sporting events. well it's significant and it's important it covers all sporting events however it
2:02 pm
doesn't change that much about the situation we've already been in for the past 5 years after russia effectively poisoned its own winter olympics in sochi the widescale state sponsored corruption was of course uncovered from that position on words it's been about the politics of the situation there are very few if anybody who believes that russia isn't doping the question is what are people going to do about it and in this instance it's this the same 4 year ban but it's a ban really on the flag of russia will have the same situation we've had in rio and shine lympics in that there will be neutral athletes from russia that are effectively a russian team that situation is going to continue the hosting of events becomes a big deal as well russia has some big world sports events coming up in the next few years and it's whether they can find a loophole by the court of arbitration for sport to actually continue to host those events we know that big figures in world sport want to keep russia in the game
2:03 pm
rather than push them away from it despite this clear evidence of doping. it's not a surprise is it lee that there's doping in sports what sort of difference is this likely to make. well i don't think it makes much difference to talk to perception of sport whatever sport it is whether it's athletics which is of course the key part of of any olympics whether indeed even its football which plays into this with whether russia can compete in a world cup under a name that would be farcical you know a neutral thing from russia but in terms of other people perceive sports obliquely no they don't they saw what happened in sochi it's not just russia who are responsible for it's not just russia who do it but the levels the state sponsored level of russian doping means people cannot believe what they're seeing and this is why it's such a difficult position for an organization like the international olympic committee
2:04 pm
on one hand i know people are losing faith and trust in sport rapidly and apathy will take over on the other hand they won't so you stay in with russia in some way and not completely exclude them it's a very difficult situation and an unsatisfactorily one all right thanks so much lee wellings there. of all came out has erupted in new zealand killing at least 5 people many more still missing a webcam set up to monitor white island court the moment of the eruption a number of people thought to be a tour group can be seen moving towards the crater up to 50 people including visitors from a cruise ship or on the island when the volcano sent a plume of smoke and ash thousands of meters into the air al-jazeera have a mohammed has the latest. thick smoke and ash rises thousands of meters into the air as the white island volcano also known by its indigenous mardi name as for carry erupts 50 kilometers off the coast of new zealand releasing toxic fumes of

sulfur and chlorine dozens of tourists were on the island some seen walking on the crater floor moments before the eruption police said more than 20 people managed to get off the island some in boats others including some of the injured by helicopter volcanic ash is now hampering rescue is attempts to get to the island a number of other people have been taken to hospital or move more hospital. a number of people have burns as a as a result of the eruption and new zealand's prime minister has called for calm i know there will be a huge amount of consume and anxiety for those who have loved ones on or around the island at the time and i can assure them police are doing everything they can white island is located in the bay of plenty and has been active for at least 150000 years it's new zealand's largest and most unpredictable volcano erupting
2:06 pm
every couple of years releasing gas clouds steam and rocks the alert level was raised last month warning the volcano may experience a period of activity more than normal it's not a particularly big eruption is is sieved it was kind of. almost like a throat clearing kind of eruption and that's why material probably won't of made it to a new zealand what mike it mainly in new zealand on the scheme of things from volcanic eruptions it's not large but if you're close to it is of this not good emergency services say it's too early to confirm the number of injuries or deaths but there are fears of more fatalities here mohammed al jazeera. this is a journalist with news she's in fact aaton a new zealand one of the closest towns to the volcano. originally the helicopters
2:07 pm
were managed to get close to the shore the boats. the paramedics to the island but they've now had to leave because of the ash there is a no fly zone for about 26 nautical miles around the island there's a 5 kilometer radius exclusion zone no one is around no one is allowed to break that zone until they are given the all clear from authorities which no one is happy about simply because it's so heartbreaking to know that there are people still on that island and not accounted for but simply they're not willing to risk any more lives at this stage no this island is not heaven. it's purely people visit it just for the experience of being on an active volcano it's usually sits at a level one a risk and they are daily toas going the tourists international tourists but also local visitors coming and going out to see this incredible volcano that we have
2:08 pm
literally ferry ride away from so it's a very popular destination but what we understand is that the only people that are on the air at the moment are those who were part of one of the total groups that leafed earlier today going on a trip of a lifetime and have not managed to get off there are movements the service is standing by waiting for the ash to clear syrian activists say more than 18000 people have been displaced in the last rebel held province in the last 24 hours syrian and russian government airstrikes have intensified despite a cease fire announced by moscow in august these 10 civilians were killed on sunday on one couple and is the director of policy analysis at the arab center for research and policy studies he says government is trying to gain control of an important highway. i think it looks very much like there is a massive are offensive by the regime and its allies in order to capture them in
2:09 pm
towns along the m 5 between them them in broad in 5 was the main road between hamas and liberal. of president bashar assad the forces of the regional president bashar assad are trying actually to capture the main towns along that road it has been for a prolonged actually the main target of the syrian government there was an agreement actually between turkey and russia. concerning of course this part of. that agreement has been actually violated many times and we are seeing it one more time actually because as i said i mean this is going to be for the regime a very important military operation for actually begin in control of this main road between how and. turkey has sent more suspected eisel fighters and their families to their home countries this time to france 11 suspects have been deported joining
2:10 pm
more than 60 other foreign nationals have been sent home by turkey since mid november most of them have come from france or germany but the revulsive been others from belgium australia and the u.s. turkey has been holding more than 1200 suspected ice all members in its prisons and in northern syria last month ankara amounts that would be ramping up its efforts to deport more ice or fighters the has more from paris on the agreement between turkey and france. back in november when the turkish government announced that it would be deporting some of these suspected eisel fighters that the french interior minister chris of the time confirmed that france would indeed receive them under an agreement that had been made back in 2014 between france and turkey so it was a different government before president backhauls government that's been very adamant that they do not wish to receive adult eisel suspects the french government
2:11 pm
says that they are open to receiving children minors but not adults now what normally happens though when suspects arrive here in france is that they are arrested as soon as they do arrive and that they then face the french justice system but as i said because the french government does not want to receive adult suspects believing that they should be tried in the area where they committed their crimes they the relationship between france and turkey is probably going to be further strained by this and of course we've seen just recently how that has become increasingly tense last week emmanuel macro suggesting that turkey was taking unilateral decisions outside of nato rules that a nato summit in london and of course the turkish president has recently accused the french president of harboring terrorists because of a man or macros meetings with kurdish groups spend 2 years since i saw was defeated in iraq but the victory is overshadowed by the slow pace of reconstruction and lack

2:13 pm
they didn't do anything for us and still the family is lucky to soon have a roof over their head some parts of the old city remain level to the ground the result of a relentless campaign of coalition airstrikes. the made an area is where i saw made its last stand in july 2017 and since then it has remained virtually unchanged the biggest obstacle is not just like a funding but also disagreement over how it should be rebuilt some officials want to open it up to private investment while others want to rebuild it in a way that preserves whatever is left of the spirit and the architecture of the old city residents whose houses have been completely destroyed are entitled to government compensation but less than 5 percent of the $33000.00 claims submitted in this province have been paid out so far this family lost their house in an air strike since then they rented this rundown apartment in east mosul last year the
2:14 pm
government finally agreed to pay compensation but only a 3rd of what they paid to constructed just 5 years ago and even that money has yet to be processed. for them now when this paper was issued we were shocked we lost our house we lost the furniture and we cannot do anything and i understand there is no benefits to appeal it will cost more money whatever they told me i will accept this is our fate. none of us knew governor the 3rd person to hold that post in just 2 and a half years admits the government made mistakes. the startling bureaucracy has affected the pace of construction yes the funds that we received are insufficient to meet the needs of the province but unfortunately many of these funds were also returned to state coffers because of bureaucracy. the mounting feeling of neglect is reminiscent of 2013 when thousands protested in mosul against
2:15 pm
