2:08 am
a great amount of pressure on the government to just step back and abandon this offensive. and that's exactly what they've done, how long the c bar will last. if anyone gets to be seen, they'll be out as long as the harvest season takes. and that means there's time to negotiate, which is what should've happened all yeah, william, just the final thoughts. i mean, as innocent civilians who continue to pay a heavy price in this conflict. urines were wanting for some time as you know, but 5000000 people need food date and threatening 250000, a facing famine in northern ethiopia. yeah, you know, there are these phases and during the $50.00 and faith 5, i mean they're in famine, they are starving and there's another over a 1000000 that are paid for and on down the line, there's 1700000 displaced, population flung over several borders, so the humanitarian situation was becoming quite dire and starting to resemble the manner syria that type of situation. and that's why the national community started putting so much pressure on here being government and this rebel victory created

2:18 am
a shift change going on. that accounts for all those vehicles over there. and if you can see the flowers just beyond those vehicles on the fence over there, that is it memorial that families and local community members have erected here to pay tribute to those rescue workers. and what they've been doing is they've been using cameras sonar and west q jogs and they've been digging trenches down into the rebel in order to find people. they say that there are voids that they found using those methods voids where people might be found. and they've heard sounds from down there, but those were not necessarily human sounds, not human voices. they say possibly the sounds of electrical equipment and other things that are going off down there under the rubble. and those workers are working is quickly as they can because they know time is dwindling for them to find survivors. but they say there still is hope for that that this is

2:20 am
they're going around to all of the buildings that are nearly 40 years old or older that are high rise. that's in trying to determine whether there are any immediate emergencies there, but you're right. indeed, this will take some time. all right, john henry live for stay in surfside and probably john, thank you. italy is 5 minutes to lose you. demario has proposed setting up an international task force to count the threat of ice and across africa. it's been backed by the us secretary of state to the meeting in room of members of the global coalition to defeat the group. i still has made major gains in recent weeks and niger area, that's a hell most of the big and the democratic republic of congo. nicholas are crippled at a conference in rome, members of the global coalition against iso warn the fight is not over. africa is the new battle ground, or proposed to do group or the level that he got to allow for. i propose the creation of a working group to identify and hope the terrorist threat of islamic state in the
