4:08 pm
really see what the rules are. what i think is that germany is under real pressure, and the whole e.u. is under pressure politically to stem the flow, as you said it in the report. and turkey knows that it has to deliver, if it wants to continue support of the e.u., and is trying to play time a little bit, to gain some time before it let's new people in. it's basically - it's kind of finding a balance of deterrence and allowing humanitarian - i mean, allowing people in for humanitarian motives. this gaining time is dangerous from the humanitarian perspective. from the political perspective, it is clear what happens. >> it sounds they are used as pawns, whichever way you look at it.

4:34 pm
these images of scorched bodies, amputations and starvation are not new, nor are the accusations that syrian government forces are to blame. a new u.n. report says crimes against humanity have been taking place systematically in syrian detention facilities, amounting to war crimes. >> the scale of debt suggests that the government of syria is responsible for extermination as a crime against humanity, because the deaths are brought out in persuns of a state (per -- per-suance ever a policy to attack the individuals. >> reporter: this man was arrested with his father after taking part in anti-government demonstrations in 2011. >> because i was not giving them enough information that they can use, they brought me to a room.

4:37 pm
political transition in syria. whether it can bring peace between israelis and palestinians. unfortunately, the region is experiencing many commence, and the revolution is important to the future of the region and the world. >> now to the united states. last week it was iowa, there was a caucus, and now we have the first primary. that is in new hampshire of the u.s. election year. voters will decide which republicans and developments they want on their tickets. as we go to alan fisher, who is in new hampshire. it would be fair to say that bernie sanders, for the democrats, the favourite donald trump is the favourite for the republicans, what would an upset look like here. an upset would look like donald trump's reputation can't stand a
4:38 pm
second loss when you declare yourself to be the winningest president america has seen. ted cruz not in the top three is an upset, and it's a toss up who is going to come third between marco rubio, chris christie and john kassig. they are establishment bases for want of a better phrase and are based on the idea that the campaign would have kick started in namp -- new hampshire. at the democratic side, and we are hear at an event that bernie sanders will speak about in an hour in namp. if hillary clinton -- new hampshire, if hillary clinton gets within 15 points of him, that would be a big win. it was new hampshire that saves the campaign, she finishes third in iowa, and by winning here she kept the campaign against then senator president obama going for a few months longer. >> we were at the hillary event. it generated a lot of excitement
4:39 pm
and interest. people lining up to get there. the same sort of thing we get here. the weather turned for the worse. it's snowing heavily. people are coming to the college on the outskirts to show support for bernie sanders. all the politicians hope that they can convince independent voters to vote for them. in new hampshire. you can show up at a primary or democrat one. sometimes the power of independence in new hampshire is overstated. >> reporter: it's a state that prides itself on pioneering experience, it says that on the number plate. and they pride themselves on vetting candidates, the election deciding who goes on and who doesn't make the cut. that leaves the candidates chasing the independence. that's difficult. they have to convince the party
4:40 pm
faithful that they are true to their beliefs, recruiting others into the voting both. it's estimated 40% of new hampshire voters describe themselves as independence. when it comes to the primary they choose which party to support, and which candidate gets the vote. >> channy is one of them. a former republican. she judges candidates where they stand on issues important for them. >> most are predictable. they stay in the box. independent voters are swayed by different things. that they need to be on top of their game to sway the independent voters. the party line won't do it. there's a growing sense of frustration and disappointment. and for more people calling themselves independence. one analyst believes they don't really switch. >> a lot of research has found
4:41 pm
independence, they found they are consistent voters for one party or the other over time. for whatever reason, they think of themselves ass independent saying i'm not an independent. i'm a republic, but i have voted differently the last seven elections. >> it still matters. the independent mindedness matters to the voters. >> winning independence is a test for anyone that wants to be president. candidacy and independent voters are in new hampshire, they don't always win the nomination. it remains an important stop on the road to the white house. independent, independent. those are the voters. what about if an independent candidate came in, what would that do to the race. suggestions are getting stronger, that the former mayor of new york will throw their hat
4:42 pm
in. >> well, first of all, you wouldn't have to go through a primary process like this, and you'd be able to sell funds given the money he has. traditionally party runs don't do well. cast your high back to john anderson, to ross piero, and it's thought that when independence runs, they take votes from both parties. half was a third party candidate. he ran. it's thought that al gore did not get the presidency, isn't get enough votes in certain sections in certain parts of the country, because rob was running as a third party candidate. whether you believe it or not. that is the myth built up about the third party candidates. the republicans are weary. there was a feeling that donald trump did not get the nomination for the republican party, he'd
4:43 pm
set up his own run. it will be interesting to see if bloomberg gets in. and where he puts his policies on gun law, taking votes from the democrats. on the fiscal policy, he may take it away from republicans. chances of success are slim. in this election cycle. who knows what will happen. the whole rubric has been ripped up and thrown out the window. >> thank you alan fisher in new hampshire more than 4,000 academics sent a letter of protest about an italian student in egypt. a body was found on the outskirts of cairo, and had a broken neck and signs of extreme torture. the cambridge university student was reported missing nine days earlier. the egypt interior minister
