1:02 pm
region right now, are making it much more difficult to be able to come to the table, and have a serious conversation. and we have called on russia, and call on russia again, to join in the effort to bring about an immediate cease fire, and to bryn about full humanitarian help. that is what this meets will be about, and this meeting will tell a lot about the road ahead. we are not blind to what is happening. we are all very very aware of how critical this moment is. and russia needs to contributor in significant ways to sustaining the ability of the opposition, and others to come to the table. >> let's get more now with our diplomaedic ed story, what do you make of these? >> what is possibility here
1:03 pm
is the timing. one week after the geneva talks collapsed, undermines pause of russian bombardment, which meant it made it possible for the opposition to stay there, then decided to postpone the talks. >> and we are just two days away from a big meeting. that is the meeting to try to get this back on track. to try to persuade the rest of the international community, try to persuade russia, to stop the bombardment. and diplomates have been telling me that john kerry face as very tough job, that's why i think he is having discussions with the russians before the meeting takings place. at the same time, he doesn't want to be too tough, because he doesn't want this process to collapse. >> so why is russia come out with this we are making a proposal now that could result in peace? syria? is it just purely because of that meeting it wants to lay out it's position? >> it also may be if russia is going to back down, we don't know. this would be quite a face
1:04 pm
saving way to do it, to say that it is a russian proposal. it is clear that the discussions are about two things, about getting humanitarian access, about a possible cease fire. some of the diplomates say they are septemberble about this, how do you get a cease fire, if you can't even get a cease fire which are the sponsor oz f the process but that is certainly what they are trying to work on, they are also looking at the u.n.'s plans which wouldn't vote any peace keepers, what the u.n. is proposing is some sort of plan where you get cease fire made up of some of the opposition some of the sources and some of the society. and a self-monitored cease fire on the ground. >> all eyes now on munich. thank you. well, the united nations is urging turkey to open it's board tore let refugees across. tens of thousands have arrived.
1:05 pm
after fleeing intense fighting in aleppo. the government is set the offensive backs by those air strikes to recapture the country's largest city. the border camps already full uh some now have to sleep in the open with just the clothes on their backs. al jazeera is intent on the turkey syria border and joins us live right now so the organization calling on turkey to open the boarder, because of the refugee influx, what has been the reaction on the ground though? >> well, officials say that they are doing everything to help them on the other side, that their property is capable of doing what they do for them here. there, and that's what they are doing, they are setting up tents and providing them with food, shelter, and blankets and of course it is not enough. most of them want to come into turkey, because they are petrified, they don't want to be refugees but if it comes to a reality and we spoke to a 35-year-old lady that has managed to get out of syria,
1:06 pm
and she was describing what it was like in their home, constant bombardment, her seven-year-old kept asking her to close her ears because she couldn't handle the noise any more. she said it felt like leaving our souls behind. this is someone that did get out, but says we don't want to leave, so this is a real challenge you have, and the catch 22 if you will, turkey doesn't want refugees, refugees don't want to leave syria. but if you are just talking to all the diplomatic talks they also feel they have been deserted. there's been talks and plans to help with air strikes, and the situation just gets worst, we are seeing around 11,000 outside the border, you have around 40,000 in the town, that's just north of aleppo. 30,000 people in the area, we spoke to doctors without borders they said those camps were already at
1:07 pm
breaking point, with not very good conditions. this is a looming catastrophe, so an incredibly difficult situation that will only get worse with this on going intensive campaign. by the syrians backed by air strikes. >> thank you very much. so syrian government forces are trying to surround aleppo, they are hoping to cut off rebel supply lines to and from turkey. al jazeera is also from there, she september us this report. >> it is their jobs to watch the skies. when they hear the sound of jets. as first responders to the scenes of attacks these volunteers have been busier than usual. air strikes have intensified. those forces are now close to besieging the neighborhoods so the defense volunteers say they are the only hope for those who may be trapped
1:08 pm
there are some people leaving the city because they are afraid of the siege, god willing it won't happen, but regardless, volunteers and our families decide to stay because we need to help the people and fighters who chose to stay. >> civilians are increasingly helpless. doctors and nurses are overwhelmed. they work out of makeshift hospitals. medical workers are now preparing for the worst. the government has beseemed areas in other corners where people continue to die from the lack of food and medicine. and the fear is eastern aleppo, may be next. we will stay here and remain steadfast, but the medical supplies we have are only enough for a month and a half. >> the opposition is just as defiant. their use whatever weapons they have, but their opponents control the skies. never theless, hay say they will not withdraw.
1:09 pm
>> god willing they can't lay siege to aleppo, we have a plan to confront this, we promise our brothers in syria, we will fight there are many front lines the opposition has lost territory in the country side, but they are still fighting back. >> with the help, the syrian government is close to encircled the city, and the troops are approaching with turkey. it has already managed to disrupt their supply lines. >> there are towns where opposition fighters are still holding grown, it is strategic to help the government from cutting off the highway that links this city to opposition territories further west. this battle is not over. but the opposition is under a lot of pressure. the net of using it's heart land is real. >> three people have been killed after a hospital run by doctors without borders in syria was hit by an air strike. this happened four days ago,
1:10 pm
12-kilometers from the border, doctors without borders says six people were injured including a nurse, the group says 13 facilities have been hit since the start of this year. >> the ices lambic state of iraq has claimed responsible of a car bomb that kilted at least 20 people. it was reported that an isil fighter dressed in a police uniform tried to ram his car into a police officer's car. when he was stopped he detonated the explosives. >> . >> ten times as many migrants and refugees arrived in europe by sea, in the first six weeks of this year after the same period of 2015. the international organization for migration says the number of deaths has soared. the coast guard has helped rescue dozens trying to cross the sea from turkey. more than 300 people traveling on rubber ding byes
1:11 pm
have been towed ashore. >> . >> and the turk irk coast guard has released footage of one man's rescue, they found the man holding on to the barrel of an almost fully submerged boat. 34 people have had been on the vessel which was on reege to the greek island. 27 dies and six are still missing. at least ten people have been killed in a collision between two trains in the german state. investigators say the accident happened at high speed, killing both drivers and leaving at least 80 people injured. dominic haines reports from the scene. it is a picture of deffation. the task is clear try to free any passengers still trapped incited. and carefully to remove the bodies of some of those who were killed.
1:12 pm
a full scale response. difficult to access, close to a river bank. rescuers attempted to reach those strandings anyway they could. both by air, and on the water. deploying helicopters to help move the injured. and any equipment which might be needed in the coming hours. >> suddenly you can feel the train, and there was a massive bang, and when i opened my eyes again, all was dark. all you could hear was people shouting and screaming. there was a boy on the ground, and i picked up and put on the seat next to me, and i of course ad around for anyone was hurt. if you look behind me you can
1:13 pm
see the end of the train, following the natural curve where the ambulances are is the point of the collision. we have to assume they had no visual contact. and hit each other without braking p p dozens of people have been injured, many seriously. some are being treated while still on the train. many of those onboard were thought to be on their way to work when the crash happened. one line of investigation is why an automatic train braking system in place here did not work. officials are at the scene trying to find out what caused the collision, and why they were on the same line at the same time.
1:14 pm
dominic, night has fallen there, what is happening at the crash site? >> well, felizsy, has darken has fallen here. but uh the scene is alumnid by the officials have brought in to aid in what is the on going salvage operation, and also to aid their investigation. the automatic train breaking system that i referred to there, we now know officials have said that it was tested in the last few weeks and it was working. so that provides yet further evidence of the picture that the officials are trying to build together of what actually happened. we know also that two of the black boxes of the three that were onboard these trains have been recovered. and it is clear, that what will be -- the forfront of the thinking of officials is what caused this accident. why were they traveling at such high speeds in an area
1:15 pm
where the systems were in place to prevent this from occurring and because the two drivers of the trains are dead. the only tangible evidence they will be able to get proposal the moments of the impact and before it will come from those black boxes. as i say, two have been recovered, one more is believed still to be wedged inside one of the trains. which explains why the work is going on into the night here. to try to find that. >> ten people were killed in this accident, but many others were also injured weren't they? >> indeed, ten people were killed in this accident. 18 people were very severely injuried and a fourth 90 are described as likely injured. so that gives us account of 180 people effected. we also know that one person is still missing a person who may have been onboard the train so far the officials say that person is missing. but clearly, the intent here
1:16 pm
from the officials is to establish the causes of this accident. because this area of track has a speed limit of 100-kilometer an hour. and the natural curve in the landscape behind me, has been cited by one of the ministers who we heard from earlier, as perhaps a reason why the drivers were not aware of the other train arriving and why they were unable to take any kind of action to prevent this incident. >> with the latest there from the crash site, thank you. all right, still to come on this al jazeera news hour. >> how a dispute between store holders and police in hong kong turned into a riot. and an arrest many taiwan, after an apartment building collapsed during an earthquake. how this amazing shot got detroit pistons fans pumped against toronto. in basketball's nba.

1:18 pm
new hampshire lure, and people go there just to watch the election. and the campaign is invested as well, because they like the tag winner being attached. so what happened this time around, well, there were four votes in the democratic primary, and all of them went to bernie sanders, hillary clinton didn't get a single vote, and in the republican primary, well, they were split, five cast, three to john kasich, and two to donald trump. and so for the next few hours the only thing you will hear when people are talking about results from new hampshire be those two results. and is there any importance to it, well, will it be interesting to see how it shapes up many the polls close in around seven hours. >> we know that the polls have pretty much been saying sanders victory for the democrats and up from a victory for the republicans but how reliable are those? >> . >> well, we saw the polls in iowa were off, and very few people predicted that he would lose, although some people did. and he came second, here in
1:19 pm
new hampshire it is much more difficult simply because people here are independent, and most people are told around 40%, don't make up their mind until they are in the booth. if you are an independent, you can go to the republican or the democratic primary and say i want to vote here today, and once in you get to pick the candidate. well, bernie sanders has a big league, went% -- 20 points over hillary clinton and it is thought he would win. anything less then will it be good for hillary clinton. only the republican side, donald trump, 20-point lead there as well. if trump doesn't lose that will be a big blow for him. will it be interesting who comes first, rubio, kristi, kassig, and bush, all of them tying for the same sort of vying for the same sort of

1:21 pm
hillary clinton, and bernie sanders. i do like john kasich as well to some extent. we have seen hillary clinton leadership when she was a secretary of the state. bernie sanders, we still need to see his foreign policies. >> about a third of voters in new hampshire will be casting their ballots for the first time. they live somewhere else during the election or too young to vote. this is emily weathers first primary, she thinks only one candidate shares her concern. >> i support bernie sanders. >> why not hillary? >> there's a lot of things of hillary i don't feel right about. i think -- i know she is definitely been an ally for planned parenthood, and women's rights over the years, but i just feel like there's a lot of things about her that i don't -- i don't know that she has our best
1:22 pm
interest at heart. i kind of feel like she has her best interest at heart. >> . >> i think it's bernie. pure and simple. i can see the resonate with what he says about wall street. student loans. difficulty of the middle class, to make a living i think these young people are concerned, the american dream won't work for them. >> now works for an organization helping others from south asia, africa, and the middle east find refuge in the u.s., and has advice for the candidates that are attacking immigrants in. >> i think some of them still need to learn about the sense of community. >> times it is easier to decide who not to vote for. al jazeera, new hampshire. >> south africa's president is facing a legal battle that could force him to repay millions in state funds that he used to renovate his home. the case against him was
1:23 pm
brought by opposition parties to combat what they are calling corruption, and chronisim, the outrage the taxpayer has to foot the bill for the renovation remember. aaron reports. >> thousands of opposition supporters push, shove, and reach through johannesburg. they are going to the constitutional court, where judges are hearing a case on whether the president should be repaid the bill from state funded improvements. some of which saben fit him personally. >> when they arrive at the court, things get a bit rowdy, for safety reasons and crowd control, they told protestors they can't go
1:24 pm
further. >> the police are trying to contain the situation, they have put up this barbed wire. just in case things get hectic. >> after initially refusing to pay back the money, he now says he will, but he wants the finance minister to determine the amount. opposition parties say the president should not be allowed to repay on his own terms. they want the highest court to respect the authority of the office, of the public protector. that's an independent body that is supposed to hold people to account even the president. these are happening a few months before a local election, corruption and the party support in some urban areas. >> i think the opposition parties have vies by all means and they will try to squeeze any political mindness out of this. raising the credibility of the a.n.c. >> opposition parties say there will be more marchs throughout the year. al jazeera, johann nurse
1:25 pm
burg. >> political and journalist joins me now, thank you for being with us on the al jazeera news hour, so this case isn't just about making the president pay the money back, it is also about whether he violated the country's constitution, is that right? >> that's what the constitution court heard today, that two things that the president violated the laws of the land, the laws of the constitution to protect these personal gain and the second important thing is that the national family did no do it's job by not discussing and not taking seriously the public protectors recommendations. those are the two most important things. >> how damaging is this case? >> it really is difficult to say, since his credibility is so low and he has taken so
1:26 pm

1:27 pm
>> the a.n.c. has thrown security around him. but from within, some of the more respectable senior leaders of the a.m.c., there's great concern about his continued leadership and also what he will mean nor the election. so there is talk about removing him. but it is not widespread enough, and also they set a brett debit when they remove a few years ago, and they don't want to be seen doing that again. even though there is a precedent. and also when he removed from the finance board in desks the economy took a really bad hit, the currency took a bad hit, and coming so soon after that event, i doubt very much they will remove him at least not within the next few days. but there is every possibly
