and judging is happening right now at the berlin film festival we'll take a look at the movies in the running for the golden i'm sober bear award. i'm honored on a welcome to the program where we begin in syria where the government is escalating attacks on. the opposition house suburbs of damascus intense shelling for seven days has killed five hundred civilians including many children the u.n. security council has been unable to agree on a cease fire resolution in syria and has delayed a vote until later today but serious key ally russia is blocking the resolution it says it wants guarantees rebel fighters in eastern gears i will host the fighting will speak to the syria director of the save the children charity in just
a moment but first this report. these are just the latest victims of the world's inaction. dragged from the rubble of devastated eastern ghouta after six straight days of bombing. survivors are being treated in a makeshift hospital in the rebel held residential area outside damascus activists say this is the work of indiscriminate cluster bombs dropped by the syrian regime but while some receive treatment others grieve well a lot of more but. he would go. i told his grandmother he would go. he didn't want to continue living in terror. i wish it had been me who was killed instead of my son yeah i wish it had been me who was killed so i wouldn't have to grieve for you my son. some have lost hope
others cling to it the work of first responders here made ever harder by treacherous conditions and a lack of medical supplies. and as death rains down from above world powers are still arguing about how to stop it. the u.n. security council has been trying to agree on a thirty day humanitarian ceasefire but last minute amendments by russia forced a vote to be postponed to saturday. sweden's u.n. ambassador voiced his ex aspiration. i'm trying to facilitate and meaningful outcome of this security council so i can only protect what we're trying to do and that is to have or a solution adopted yesterday now we have not achieved i find that extremely frustrating given what we are faced with on the ground it's been called hell on
earth but the hope is an agreement could allow some relief to the people who top. i'm joined now by sign your cush who is the syria director of save the children sagna you are in close contact with aid workers in eastern how difficult is their work on the ground right now they were it was extremely difficult right now because of the bombs that continue to fall we need to let up in the ground argument so that our teams on the ground can get out so they can assess what's needed so they can do distributions of supplies that they have but right now everyone's just fearing for their lives they're living in tunnels they're living in shelters it in basements they don't even see the light of day snow doing any kind of relief where under these conditions is very difficult which is looking at heartbreaking footage here at the moment of the situation there right now how are families and their children surviving. you know as
a family is insured in an eastern good to have been living under siege for more than five years now so they're quite in a vulnerable situation already so with this recent bombardment is just making things so much more difficult for them children are already so terrified of the sounds of airplanes and so you can imagine they're just currying in fear right now underground and afraid to come out their resilience is really being tested right now and we can only hope that the bombardment stops soon that there's a cease fire so they can get outside and get some relief what would a cease fire allow you to do and is a cease fire even a no a cease fire in this case is not enough it's a great first start and i really hope today that the security council gets to that point however since eastern bhutto's under siege a cease fire doesn't mean that all of a sudden medical supplies will get in that people will be able to be evacuated for
treatment that will be able to get food and that will be able to get nutrition supplies for children a cease fire doesn't automatically mean out of that and that's what east includes her needs right now so in addition to this cease fire we need to really sustain to manage here in access to get people the support they need sanju push the syria director of save the children thank you. it is the of the other stories making news around the world. multiple attacks in afghanistan have left more than twenty dead the so-called islamic states they say carried a suicide bombing that killed at least two in kabul diplomatic compound it follows an attack by taliban insurgents in the west that killed at least eighteen filters at least two others died in separate blasts in the south. three bombs exploded in the capital of me on mars recchi station during a police the bombs are rare in the capital but this day is
a hotbed of ethnic struggles. buddhist insurgents are fighting a decade long rebellion and it's also home to the bloody military campaign against the real hinge of muslims no group has claimed responsibility for the blasts. estonia is marking the one hundredth anniversary of its declaration of independence from russia a parade taking place today in talons freedom square attended by the nation's president and tony it was under soviet occupation from world war two until one thousand nine hundred one it joined the european union and nato in two thousand and four. well u.s. president is turning up the heat on north korea with a new round of economic sanctions that he is calling the toughest yes but if they don't work he says the u.s. will move on to phase two which he ominously describes as quote very unfortunate for the world's. pressure. as the u.s.
imposes its largest range of sanctions yeah but they are targeting shipping companies accused of illegal treating with north korea it's an attempt to force the regime to give up its nuclear and missile programs the u.s. president says he's exploring all options we'll have to see of the sanctions don't work we'll have to go face to face too may be a very rough thing maybe very very unfortunate for the world that really is a rogue nation if we can make a deal it'll be a great thing and if we can't something will have to happen with the increasing threats of military intervention weapons experts warn sanctions alone won't solve the crisis they see their nuclear weapons program as a guarantee of their security against what they fear which is an american military attack and they're going to be willing to sacrifice economic activity in order to maintain their nuclear program. it's been six months since trump threatened fire
and fury like the world has never seen now the international community is waiting to find out what trump speeds to you will involve striking a deal or escalating tensions even further. earlier i spoke to reuters correspondent josh smith in seoul and i asked him if chump with posing the threat of a military intervention on the korean peninsula back on the table. that is certainly the question that comes up now here in south korea the winter olympics are winding down and this was an event that officials here had hoped would possibly be true broader political breakthrough possibly leading to direct talks between jiang and washington however with this latest round of sanctions while washington says it remains open to some kind of talks with north korea if they are interested in coming to the table these latest sanctions certainly set
a tone that makes many people worried. after amazing on saturday in china the international olympic committee said it will resume discussions on sunday about whether the international athletes of russia will be allowed to march under their country's flag at the closing ceremonies the i.o.c. has alleged so russian oscillates to compete but only under an olympic flag at their case is all the more difficult they say that two russians have been caught doping in china the first a courier who had his medal stripped on the second a ball pleasure who had missed it taking a banned substance. to point to think of football now and evolve spirit travel to minds on friday nights with their new coach bruno love the dia the visitors had multiple opportunities to put the game away but lines had other ideas the wolves use it by cologne netted the game's first gold problem center of the box
at the six minute mark uses came from way out when nailed for vaults broke and coached love the day it was going to do but then my answer is yes you know every move to equalize for the home side sports fails to convert a late game winner and the score remained one all. one of the great darby's in the one is think it takes place on saturday with raymond hosting northern rivals hamburg but the days when these sides were fighting for the title are long gone by men are hovering just above the drop zone and hamburg are second to last so this darby is all about one pay survival. the doggies against braman are always special for hamburg but their precarious position in the table makes this game even more exciting. is not just the position in the table you never want to lose a darby this is the way we're going to approach this game.
hamburg haven't won in ten matches. last weekend's two one defeat to laver coos and with the latest setback i. would see them lose even more ground in the relegation battle. hamburg know just how important this game is. because you know as you see this is a great chance to set things straight a bit and get back on track and you could call it. brain are also well aware that a win over a direct rival of the bottom of the table would give them a huge boost in the fight for survival they're expecting a real battle. we'll have really hard tackles and a high intensity game every player will run to the max on both sides but i'm definitely not expecting an unfair match for. saturday's dobby is a crunch game all are still deliberating but at
a gala ceremony later today they will have decided who gets the golden and silver bears awards for this year's best film nineteen pictures are in the running here's a look at the favorites. the stars on the red carpet have been at the heart of the palin rally for ten days. but now all eyes are on these six experts the international jury around president tun tex they only have a few hours left now to decide who gets the bears. this film from the philippines has the nod from many critics season of the devil is a tale of torture and of the marcos dictatorship it's four hours long it's in black and white and it's a musical for some it's art for others a provocation. everyone seems to be talking about this man actor
