a race against time rescue workers in izmir are trying to find survivors in the rubble of a collapsed building. suddenly cheers from the crowd. some one was found. but others were unable to escape. but. i thought that the ground had shattered you can think in that moment all you can try to do is get out everything was collapsing around us our building stayed intact but we were really panicked and managed to get out at the last minute. this is a family home on the 15th floor of an apartment building in izmir when the earthquake hit.
the quake struck deep in the ground beneath the aegean sea. it was followed by dozens of aftershocks with tremors felt as far away as athens and doug area building. i was in my shop i was talking with someone who felt like we were on a road it started to shake while i was watching our building shake i saw this one collapse. a small scale tsunami flooded the streets in some districts sending debris inland and causing further damage. the greek island of samuel's also suffered casualties damage and flooding with the foreign leaders of both nations pledging to help one another.
seismologists have warned that potentially powerful aftershocks could be expected for several weeks to come. and let's go straight to turkey now a d.-w. correspondent daryn jones is standing by dorian and that search and rescue operation going all night how's it going today. yes after a very long and difficult night rescue workers are still continuing to work through the rubble of the 17 or so collapse buildings so very painful the painstaking task dangerous and very difficult heavy machinery can be used as is usually can threaten to trigger further collapses so it's very labor intensive. these these efforts has meant to have some success over 70 people have been rescued from the buildings and their hope is that they will be still more survivors to be found in the coming
hours and days ahead to say at least 9 of the 17 buildings have so far been cleared so they are moving a pace with this operation is very much a race against time the longer this goes on the less chance there are of survivors and hindering those efforts all these hundreds of aftershocks of a $400.00 have hit the city already more expected and that also presents a risk of further collapses of buildings already weakened by the massive quake on friday and there in turkey is of course no stranger to the strong earthquakes but we've yet to many buildings to sort of crumble to the ground why isn't why are so many buildings still not quite proof. well that is a question people across turkey again asking images of collapsed buildings collapsing like a house of cards is an all too familiar sight of powerful earthquakes in turkey as the scene of famous seismologists professor john speaking on t.v. last night said it is only the paul that are in buildings that collapsed he said
you never see the rich being pulled out of the rubble of buildings again the question of so structural integrity of buildings is on the agenda now following the 999 earthquake in the provincial city of easement just outside is bowl which for 700000 people die stringent building codes have been in force as along with a program of strengthening buildings but given the fact that the whole of turkey is prone to earthquakes and much of the housing stock is old it is a massive task but the events of his may only underscore how important these this task is and president only one has said he'll do all that necessary to help has here now made any further announcements. no we haven't heard of anything of since last night where he promised that all means necessary will be done to help with those efforts turkish emergency teams from across the country are coming back top by soldiers also quickly on the scene one is very keen to be seen to be proactive in solving this problem because he is aware that previous governments
have been severely criticized for slow reaction to earthquake all right daryn joins in istanbul thanks very much. let's take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world police have clashed with protesters in central barcelona after crowds took to the streets to demonstrate against the latest coronavirus measures restrictions under a new nationwide state of emergency could last until may next year. armenia and azerbaijan have reached an agreement to diffuse their conflict over the disputed region of nagorno-karabakh and peace talks in geneva they promised to not purposely attack civilians and to do a prisoner exchange hundreds of people have been killed in more than a month of fighting in the region. thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of warsaw on friday to protest the polish government's near total ban on abortion opponents have been defying pandemic restrictions to take part in knightly marches

told us more about the attacker he was a 21 year old woman is young man who had traveled from tunisia to italy and then came to france recently now french media have talked to his family back in tunisia is that he had been preaching a lot over the past one or 2 years but they obviously weren't of aware of the fact that he had somehow radicalized and gotten this idea to attack france still not really clear how he decided to attack and why he came to france to do this. and tensions are high in ivory coast as the country vote in presidential elections incumbent leader and a son what tara is running for a contested 3rd term which the opposition says is unconstitutional his rivals are boycotting the elections and i've called for a campaign of civil disobedience at least 20 people have died in violence running up to the vote thousands were killed after presidential elections in 2010 i'm
joined now by funny fashion vision in ivory coast funny we've seen the violence in the lead up to this vote what's the situation like there today. at this point everything is quite peaceful for ivorian standards but just yesterday in the capital there were violent clashes between security forces and what are our protesters now people here who are headed to the polls today to be part of this very controversial elections really bracing for the worst they are bracing for violence but they're still hoping for a peaceful all to come of this very controversial election controversial for various reasons one is president ouattara is running for a 3rd term even though he promised not to and then the main opposition parties who are boycotting the elections all together calling for civil disobedience. you say that we've mentioned that also in our why is the opposition rejecting this election and calling for that disobedience. they are saying that this is illegitimate this
entire election that president ouattara doesn't have the rights to run for because the election has been amended in 2016 that only permits 2 mandates now president ouattara is saying that's true there are only 2 mandates high over the election the constitution was changed in 20 it was amended in 2016 while he was in office and he says basically for him the clock has been reset just like in other parts of west africa in guinea or in togo riyadh elections this year that was a very similar story that the sitting president claims he does have the right to run for a 3rd time because the change in the constitution to mammon doesn't account for him so as a result the main opposition parties here except for an independent candidate that is running against president ouattara these main opposition parties are saying that this entire election here is a farce what they want is a different candidate from the r h d p party the governing party candidate didn't have 2 terms so far now we know that
there was a lot of violence killed killing thousands of people after the 2010 election and there are fears of a possible return of that violence and how likely do you think that is. definitely those memories are very very stark memories 2002 to 2010 when they ivorians here really received a very very brutal taste the brutal experience of what polls election violence can mean nobody really knows how the violence that into the run up to these elections have already played out on the roads nobody knows how that is going to food to ask later today i also believe that a lot will depend on how president ouattara is able to quell these protests by the way and how he's going to address the nation once the election is over and once the polling stations have closed tonight funny fashion thank you. well football now in the bundesliga friday night game shelter and gun battle to
