6:01 am
with severe sight loss to find their way around. welcome to the program. we start with a worrying new development in the crisis in iraq. already in control of a number in the country including mosul in the north and fallujah further south, isis extremists are reported fighting less than an hour from the capital baghdad. we're talking around the city of baquba there. with the group spread across the country, president obama has announced the u.s. will deploy almost 300 troops to defend the american embassy in baghdad. american officials are discussing the crisis with iraq's neighbor iran.
6:02 am
richard reports. >> reporter: november 2011, the iranian protestors attack the british embassy in teheran. offices and private quarters were ransacked. there was a small fire. the embassy was closed as was the iranian one in london. now they say the time is right to put the the footing on a new situation. there are a range of practical issues we need to resolve first says william hague. it is our intention to reopen the embassy in teheran with a small presence as soon as practical arrangements have been made. president obama also considers ways to work with iranians on stabilizes iraq. his team says there will be no military operation but other steps are possible. >> we're open to discussions if something constructive can be contributed by iran if iran does
6:03 am
something to protect and respect the sovereignty of iraq and government of reform. >> discussions with the iranian delegation have taken place on the sidelines of the vienna sideline talks. the pragtown captured by the militants has left the iraqi government reeling. >> this is a terrorist organization of such brutality that has destabilize iraq and will stabilize the whole region. therefore the u.s. has a duty of care to protect and support iraq and keep it stable under these strategic agreements between the u.s. and iraq. >> washington has sent this aircraft carrier into the gulf as it considers its options.
6:04 am
275 troops are being deployed for key assets. air strikes are also possibilities. but the u.s. has ruled out leading another ground war. it wants iraqis to fight. hundreds have been fighting. the battle lines are becoming sectarian with the potential for a wider civil war. >> there's a risk of further sectarian violence on a massive scale within iraq and beyond its borders. i encourage all leaders, political, military, religious and community to insure that their followers avoid acts of reprize. >> hundreds of thousands have been displaced by the fighting. le the u.n. refugee agent has brought them tense. iraqis are looking for someone to bring them peace and security
6:05 am
too. bbc news. just got a couple of breaking news lines to bring you coming out of iraq. we'll start with the ap news agency. it's reporting 44 prisoners have died after a sunni group attacked a jail northeast of baghdad. that's according to the iraqi police. another news line that's coming to us, iraq's biggest oil refinery in the town has been shut down. its foreign staff will be evacuated. local staff remain in place. military is in control of the refinery. militants are surrounding the site. there are couple of breaking news lines coming from iraq. we have our reporter in the northern region in the capital. he's been speaking to the prime minister about the situation and explains more from that interview.
6:06 am
>> reporter: in an interesting position they've been able to benefit from the turmoil by moving forces toward across the dividing line between iraqi. they have been left. kurds have taken over disputed areas. they benefitted to that extent. they're now under pressure from iran and the government in baghdad, possibly other quarters, to allow their forces who are very convincing and cohesive fighting forces to be used against the extremist of isis and so on. well that's not something they're going to rush into. the prime minister made it absolutely clear their top priority is defending kurdishon and not get it involved and get
6:07 am
focused on sunni arab areas that isis and others have taken over. as far as he is concerned, this is not a question of isis and terrorism. it goes further than that. here's part of what he had to say. >> of course we cannot deny i isis has been involved in this situation. i think it's not only isis. it's their result of the wrong policy in baghdad with the area a. it's about all the sunni community. they feel neglected. i think baghdad should convince sunni in political process. >> your army, would you be willing to use forces for example to retake mosul and drive isis out? >> no. it's not our agenda. our top priority now to protect the kurdistan region.
6:08 am
it remains our top priority. >> the army can't do it eating senator. >> no, they cannot. the best way is to help the sunni army to take responsibility to tribes. i'm sure they're willing to take over. >> and jim, prime minister is pretty pessimistic about the future of iraq, the country united? >> yes. he said it's going to be hard to get it back together again and that the best option in his view would be for the sunni areas to follow the same courses to same autonomous region. it would be split into three entities, a loose federal arrangement. that's what he's saying. the problem of isis and islamics
6:09 am
would be a problem. if they were isolating on the ground, extremists of isis, it could be a joint venture to try and eliminate them. certainly kurdish are not going to get involve on behalf of the prime minister. that's absolutely clear. let's turn to other stories. al shabaab has staged another attack on kenya's coast killing 10 people. the gunmen targeted villages in the area close to the town of mpeketoni where 48 were killed by al shabaab sunday night. let's go to nairobi and speak to dennis. two attacks in days. what's going on on the coast?
6:10 am
>> top security agents are in the mpeketoni area as we speak. a while ago they made announcement saying they're confirming 15 are reported dead. most of them from the forest and nearby bushes. this is coming at a time when people are outraged on social media. the trending topic is about the attack there and insecurity in general saying that the government and all top security agencies keep promising kenyans security but they're slow to act. they're quick to react. >> dennis, al shabaab claiming responsibility as we've now acknowledged. do we know why? in revenge for earlier attacks? have they said why exactly? >> in the last couple of hours there's been a twist on the theory of whether al shabaab was responsibility even though they've claim add responsibility for these attacks. the gunmen say the issue is all
6:11 am
about politicpolitics. in that particular area there's been issues with tribes being there. the people have cried saying the lands belong to them. the political undertones from the government are not coming out very clear on who exactly is behind this. al shabaab have claimed responsibility. the military operations commander say they've killed 20. most of them are police officers of course. these figures cannot be verified. there appears to be a separate idea the government hasn't found who is behind this. probably al shabaab took advantage of this social political gap in the area. >> always good to get your analysis. thank you very much dennis in nairobi. let's bring you up to date. crew members of the south korea
6:12 am
ferry that sunk in april argue it was up to the coast guard to rescue the passengers. the members of the crew are on trial with charges ranging from homicide to negligence after they abandoned with hundreds on board. a buss crashed in venezuela. it was 35 kilometers from the capital caracas when the driver lost control. it hit the central road barrier and then a tree. search teams have yet to go to the area where inmarast is confident the plane went down. lots of busy tons talk about. aaron is here. a bit of a disaster for gm.

6:19 am
normalize the political relations between iran and uk. it should happen. perhaps recent developments in iraq speeded up the process. >> do you expect this step could further bring us along the road of not just uk corporation with iran but american corporation as well? >> iran and u.s. need to cooperate with each other over iraq. i believe they will do it with or without the uk. you know that they are sticking with each other. they are talking to each other, negotiating over the nuclear program and other issues. they can speak about the recent developments in iraq and perhaps planned cooperation. the uk can play a role in this regard. >> so the west may have reason to cooperate with iran over
6:20 am
iraq, but in terms of what's happening in syria, what's the interest observed by iran's support of president al-assad there. it's got to be delicate this will trend. >> we should not forget isis was considered an important part of the syrian opposition before. so the group that's fighting with the syrian government is fighting with iraqi government, backed by the united states. it can be a ground for cooperation between iran and u.s. at least until the next notice. >> really complicated situation. thanks for trying to explain. many thanks. we're going to have a change of pace now. we're going to talk about people who have severe sight loss. getting out and about for them can be a daily challenge. now researchers from oxford university have made a break

6:32 am
country encroaching on the capital, president obama has announced he's sending 300 troops to protect the american embassy and staff in baghdad. the british government has set out plans to reopen its embassy in iran. a short while ago i spoke to the spokesman for the iraqi prime minister maliki. he explained by sunni militants have managed to seize a number of towns and cities in the past week. >> these people have been able to get a grip because they are supported by former saddam militants. getting backing and support and arms from regional countries with the west turning a blind eye and leaving them a vacuum in syria to work from, they have been able to take over these areas. also they have been working on this secretly for some time
6:33 am
undermining army generals in that area who were former saddam army generals brought back under the plan of reconciliation. corrupt leaders of that area as well in order to give instructions to the iraqi army in that area to dispand. there was no fight. they were able to come in. they also -- these militants also used isis and terrorists as a front. so you know the collapse of the iraqi army was planned for. this will not be repeated anywhere else. we will be able to reclaim our country and get rid of these terrorists. >> i'm interested to get your views on what the kurdish prime minister has been saying to jim. he's saying the sunnis have felt undermined by maliki's
6:34 am
government. perhaps the best solution here would be like a kurdish autonomous government. he doesn't think iraq most mosul will be the same again. >> they're completely rejected by iraqis. first of all the sunni community has had a lot of representation in the government. the head of parliament is a sunni. the deputy prime minister is a sunni. heads of army are sunnis. the ministers, over ten ministers in the government, who are sunnis. they have had representation. if there are grievances we have a democratic parliament and system they can air grievances. that's not excuse to take armed struggle. in fact they are not taking any armed struggle. it is these terrorists who have used this as a excuse to come in backed by militants. >> can iraq stay together?
6:35 am
>> yes. iraq must stay together and will stay together. all iraqis voted on a constitution of a united iraq. iraqis want united iraq. iraq will remain united and will overcome terrorists. these terrorists are rejected by sunni community, sunni leaders and they will be defeated. >> let's move on. we're going to leave events in iraq for the moment. we have more to bring you including we're waiting for the british foreign secretary william hague to make a segment about reopening the embassy in iran. i think he's on his feet speaking very shortly about that situation with the british wanting to reopen the embassy. as soon as that happens we'll bring that to you. we are going to move on. just over 100 days for the
6:36 am
search for the missing malaysian airliner. the government said they will keep looking. the company with the key satellite data say the government is not looking in the key hot spot area. according to their records, the missing plane lies south west of the area that's been the area of search. >> on march 8, malaysian airlines flights mh 370 set off for beijing. on board with 239 passengers and crew. 40 minutes into the flight air traffic controllers lost radio contact with the crew and lost track of the plane on their radar. but hourly electronic connections between the jet and communications satellite showed the plane continue today fly for several hours. the data from the company that
6:37 am
owned the satellite suggested it came down in the southern indian ocean. an australian naval vessel was sent to search if area. it never got to the area because it picked up signals distance away that the search team thought was coming from the jet's flight recorders. the lead turned out to be a dead end. >> it was by no means unrealistic location. it was further to the northeast than our area of highest probability. >> the australian authorities leading the hunt are making a detailed undersea map of the new search area. this is likely to take several months. once they know the precise shape of the seabed they can choose the vessels best suited to continue the underwater sweep. bbc news. and for those of you watching in the uk, see full

story on horizon. the program is on at 9:00 this evening and on the bbc i player after that. the program is called where is flight mh 370? now let's go to events in kenya. al shabaab has staged another attack on the coast. this time killing at least ten people. al shabaab says those killed include police officers and wild life. the gunmen targeted villages in the area close to the town of mpeketoni. that's where 48 were killed sunday night. al shabaab claims the attacks are in response to the presence of kenyan troops in somalia and harassment of muslims in kenya. dennis is in the capital city of nairobi. i asked him for the latest. >> reporter: top security agents are in the area to speak a while ago making announcement saying
6:39 am
they're confirming 15 are reported dead. most of them from the forest and nearby bushes. this is coming at a time when people are out raged especially social media. the trending topics are about attacks there and insecurity in general saying that the government and all the top security agencies keep promising kenyans of security. they're slow to act and quick to react. >> dennis, al shabaab claiming responsibility as we've now acknowledged. do we know why? in revenge for earlier attacks. have they said why exactly? >> in the last couple of hours there's been a twist to this theory as to whether al shabaab was responsible even though they've claimed responsibility for two attacks. the gunmen say this issue is all about politics. they're saying in that particular area, there have been an issue of resources and land
6:40 am
with a tribe there being accused of taking over land and people regionally have cried saying the land belongs to them. so political undertones from the government are not coming out very clear on who exactly is behind this. al shabaab have claimed responsibility. the military operations commander say they've killed 20, most being police officers. of course those figures cannot be verified. there appears to be a separate idea the government doesn't have who's exactly behind this. there's argument al shabaab probably took advantage of this social political gap in the area. >> the british foreign secretary william hague is about to announce britain plans to reopen the embassy in teheran. let's speak to my colleague from bbc persian. he's in vienna. that's where talks between iran and western powers over iran's
6:41 am
nuclear program are happening. i'm guessing the situation in iraq and reopening of this embassy are talked about as well. okay. unfortunately we don't have him there. i'm sorry. we had the line but didn't have the sound. so we will try and re-establish the line to vienna and speak to him for his views. okay. let's round up some of the day's other main stories now. the french president has condemned an attack on a teen e teenager in a suburb. the 16-year-old boy is in critical condition after he was beaten by a mob that suspected him of being behind a burglary. the president said it was an unspeakable and unjustifiable attack. crew members of the south korean ferry that sank in april

6:46 am
line. i'm guessing they're talking about everything happening in iraq as well? >> reporter: that's right. in this building behind me, the headquarter of the u.n. as we speak. iran sits down with six world powers to talk about the nuclear problem and crisis. but of course the crisis in iraq in neighboring iraq is overshadowing these talks and how iran can help solve this problem or reduce the extent of this crisis is an issue. it was only yesterday that iran had direct talks here in vienna with the united states and on the sidelines of that. they talked about iraq. today we see the new development in the relations between iran and britain. only yesterday that the uk foreign secretary william hague talked on the phone to iran's
6:47 am
foreign minister zarif about the iraqis. it looks like the problem in iraq, the crisis has given new emphasis to efforts to improve bilateral relations between iran and the uk. >> looks as though the events in iraq have sped diplomatic efforts along. thanks for your analysis from vienna. now the families of a group of iraqis and iranian asylum seekers are suing for lack of care. 50 died when their ship crashed off christmas island. an eight month inquiry blame people smugglers for causing the crash but also questioned the government for not have been

6:49 am
seen only on rare occasions. the response of the people of christmas island and fellow australians there were extraordinary. for this claim to be -- it's just disbelief. one has died and 19 injures by tornados that swept through the north eastern state of nebraska. wendy has the details. no, i think we've lost that package unfortunately. let's try and move on. we have got a little bit -- few gremlins happening in the system today. my apologies. we'll move on. let's talk about what's happening with the world cup next. we've got four englishmen who got to the world cup by foot. they decided to walk 1966 kilomete kilometers. if you're a fan, 1966 england won the world cup.
6:50 am
let's watch this story. >> my name is adam. i'm from new market in england. we were four friends. we wanted to go to the world cup. we also wanted to help the people and charity that's close to our heart. we set out to walk 1966 kilometers from argentina to braz brazil. the last time england won the world cup it was 1966. it's an iconic number for england fans. part of me didn't know what to expect. it was my first time in south america. the reality was it was really grueling. we walked three days in the sun, 35 degrees heat, no shade. the biggest mosquitos i've ever seen. we had to sleep in abandoned train stations. we were charged by bulls on two separate occasions. we went over sleepers with our
6:51 am
golf carts about five kilometers and realized this was a ridiculous idea. we were walking through a farmer's field, thick, heavy mud. we came to a fence. me and dave tried to lift the fence and both got electrocuted and nearly vomited. pretty dangerous place. we're all very good friend, similar sense of humors. there's been times it's very difficult to live in each other's pockets for 100 days. we did it and got there without anyone massively falling out. the best thing about being in argentina, they show football day in and day out. we managed to watch the end of the premiere league season, champions league finals and also local football. when we were walking through the coastal town, what we thought was a stray dog began following
6:52 am
us. he absolutely stunk. it wasn't until three days before we finished, we found out jefferson wasn't a stray dog. we got a message who's friend spotted jefferson in a local newspaper. we told them our plan to finish the walk. we reunited them. it was an emotional time. i don't think walt disney could have written a more perfect end to the story. this was a great ending point. it was definitely a journey that's taught me a lot about myself and resilience. >> great story. well done to the lads. what's the best way to support your time beyond wears country's colors?
6:53 am
