5:02 am
the village in a rebel controlled village has been hit and didn't have information concerning the casualties but the observatory for human rights which monitors the conflict in syria says nine people are killed and they are saying it was a suspected russian air strike. this is not the first time a health facility supported by msf has been hit in syria. over a week ago one of their facilities in the southern providence was hit, casualties were reported in that strike and the doctors without borders said that it was the 13th health facility that has been targeted since the beginning of the year and in the past two months the healthcare in syria has all but collapsed, hospitals have been targeted throughout the years of this conflict and rebel-controlled areas they have to set up makeshift clinics and secret locations in order to
5:03 am
provide healthcare to the people, a very grim situation and msf at the time of the attack called on the warring parties to refrain from targeting these health facilities saying that they really violate international law. >> and meanwhile the highly contested northern corridor of syria is getting ever more violent, the battle continues and more players are entering the fray. >> reporter: undoubtedly, we are hearing of air strikes, targeting the town of azaz, that is a border town close to turkey and clearly what we understand there have been casualties and we don't have exact numbers but what we know from turkish officials 35 people including ten children have been taken to hospitals inside turkey for treatment. now the opposition is interpreting this as a message from russia as well as its
5:04 am
allies of the syrian government saying that there is no red line because turkey said that aziz is a red line and they don't want any advances made towards aziz and what is interesting is the fact that it's the ypg, the kurdish armed group which is advancing to aziz and not syrian government forces, there are approximately 2-3 kilometers very close to taking that time and there is panic in aziz and people have started to pack their belongings and head to the border because they feel there are more attacks in the coming hours and the coming days. >> zaina thank you very much for the latest. well, the intensified fighting across seer yo means that people are suffering, aid agencies and the u.n. are really struggling to gain information of those in the worst fighting and they are
5:05 am
trying to feed the cold and the starving. >> reporter: the convoy from the world food program is leaving syria carrying desperately needed aid for syrians escaping aid in the providence. >> we pull off for directions with the basic items such as wheat, flour, rice and lentil. >> reporter: every month almost 300 trucks from the world food program deliver aid to syria but ever since the government and allies gained ground in aleppo providence the number of refugees increased and the need for aid is more urgent. >> we are talking tens of thousands of people who are moving to turkish border looking for safe and sending hundreds of trucks to the syrian side every month. >> reporter: the u.n. says half a million people in the syria are living in areas surrounded by anotherer government or rebel
5:06 am
forces, in the area of damascus up to 35,000 people are cutoff from aid since government forces stepped up their offenses, in the town of madaya to the east of the capitol the government is using starvation as a weapon of war, some aid has got through but hundreds need to be moved for medical help and up to 200,000 people are living under an i.s.i.l. imposed city of darazol where food and water are running out. in the rebel stronghold of duma an envoy with medal supplies arrived in the city and they have medicine and milk for children. last week they pledged humanitarian assistance for people trapped in besieged areas but it's not known if any of it has been delivered. >> the eu's criminal intelligence agency says more than 10,000 unaccompanied child refugees have disappeared since
5:07 am
arriving in europe in resent months and his fear is many of them may have become victims of reporting from sweden who have received the most child refugees in europe. >> in sweden's capitol you see them all over, as much on the margins of stockholm as much as they are on society these unaccompanied minors are running from the system while hiding in plain sight. for three days every attempt we made to interview these children was met with fear. some questions were answered far from the camera, other questions were greeted with first skepticism and later hostility. by night police watch out for them. by day social workers look out for them. >> i cannot really understand that some of them tried to avoid us and they -- when they don't know what we want with them this
5:08 am
is actually just a way for us to be able to offer them support. >> reporter: he works specifically with moroccan children in stockholm and is appalled with how they have been treated and says sweet enhas made it much harder for asylum and the risk is higher for more to fall in the hands of gangs and traffickers. >> they end up in this sort of legal limbo where they have no future, they can't make sense of life and why stay in a system that eventually will expel you, what is the point of that? so a lot of them actually choose to leave. >> reporter: the past year has seen tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors arrive in sweden. the issue of what to do with them has become an extremely controversial one at a time when anti-immigration sentiment is growing. the country's interior ministry readily acknowledges how it may
5:09 am
be finding the best solution. it's easy i would guess for children if they are in the system to flee or go missing as well. >> yes and we do not jail children because they are children. they have children's rights and we have a certain responsibility as well so we help today with different children and different resources and different ages and different ways. >> reporter: some he suggests should be placed in locked detention facilities like this one just outside stockholm where we find sophon, the 18-year-old moroccan and his identity we are hiding for his protection thought life would get better when he arrived in sweden two years ago and placed in a refugee camp. >> translator: i was put in school and learned a lot of swedish in a short time and refused asylum and it was such a shock. >> reporter: twice he appealed that decision and twice more his claim was rejected. fearing deportation he ran off.
5:10 am
petty crime he tells me was the only way he could make ends meet. >> translator: rising in the papers that moroccons are criminals and not getting involved in it to hurt others but getting involved in it to survive. >> kids and teens who are out of options having no idea where they should go even as they somehow try to keep going, mohamed, al jazeera, stockholm, sweden. and we will have more reports on child refugees in europe. coming up, on tuesday i gain exclusive access to a center for unaccompanied refugees in sweden where aid workers say the children and their charge remain as vulnerable as ever. coming up, in this al jazeera news hour how falling oil prices could change the fortune of nigeria's farmers as
5:11 am
the government turns to agricultural. reward for the revernant and leonardo is among the winners. i'm paul reese in norway where we are setting our sights on olympic glory. news coming in from uganda where the main opposition leader has been arrested. we can talk to our correspondent malcolm web in the capitol campala and what more can you tell us malcolm. >> reporter: a short while ago with a campaign rally throughout today and traveling from one to another and we understand why he was arrested or going to be
5:12 am
charged with anything. meanwhile people are gathering outside police stations and not sure exactly which one they are held in but they are gathering. >> and of course we are just a few days away from an election, an election that nobody doubt will win and has been in power again for 30 years and the question is how he will win it. >> yes, the opposition say it will be by whatever means possible and the ruling party is genuinely more popular now and arrest now could be inflammatory because ruling parties do have substantial support in the capitol before the opposition and key opposition leaders are arrested and cause protests following the last election when they investigate and one day to follow and set up throughout the capitol and a crack down by the security forces and i think now
5:13 am
awaiting to see what the reaction will be for the rest and want them released quickly and has been arrested many times before and this is to prevent west of the spot with property being damaged and it depends on the opposition until the courts say their freedom of movement, freedom of speech and freedom of assembly is restricted by the ruling party and who they say are lying to them. >> malcolm thank you very much and leading coverage of those elections in uganda in the coming days. now the australian government is coming under pressure after a hospital in brisbon has failed to discharge a migrant baby who faces deportation and treated for serious burns after being accidentally scalded with hot water in a refugee camp and andrew thomas reports from brisbon where they are protesting in support of the
5:14 am
baby and their family. >> inside this hospital is the baby whose situation has come to symbolize, personalize everything that is controversial about australia's policy towards refugees. this crowd protests 300 or more people is here to support here and stop the baby and parents from being deported and tham to -- then came to the pacific eye atlanta of naru and the mother got pregnant and they bring people who need serious attention back to australia but they were brought back to naru and the baby had an accident and water was poured on her and brought by air ambulance back here to australia and australia government now she is medically better would like to send her back to naru but the hospital staff in there, doctors and nurses won't let the baby be
5:15 am
discharged formally because they don't want her sent back to naru and access to mother and baby there are very strict restrictions on who can go in but natasha you know the mother very well. you were working with save the children on naru with her and you have been able to see her, how is she, how is the baby? >> the baby is doing well thankfully and seems to have healed quite well and the mother is completely overwhelmed. for the first couple of weeks since they arrived it is distress about the baby and then prospect of returning to naru and with support and movement she is overwhelmed and feeling so much better. >> why won't the staff in the hospital discharge her? >> they are saying she doesn't have a safe home to go to and i guess that is what a doctor would do for any child, in a child was checked in the hospital and didn't have a same home to go to the hospital would not discharge that child until they did and we are waiting for that. >> thank you very much.
5:16 am
the mother and child are being kept behind two guards from the immigration department inside the hospital here. the protests began on saturday and grown in numbers every evening since then, the people here say they won't leave here, there will be a permanent presence here until they get a guaranty that the baby would be deport to naru and 300 other people in a similar situation who stand to be deported to naru, if the australian government gets its way and the prime minister on monday was asked about the situation facing the baby here and others and said every case will be dealt with compassionately and he didn't want to get any sense to people smugglers and bringing more people to australia and the implication there is that giving and exception to a baby even would incentivized others and no exception to the top qualities and those with babies and medical needs will be dealt with
5:17 am
passionately. >> okay we can go live to brisbon and talk to the human rights lawyer and thank you for talking to us, first of all what is the legal position of the baby and she was actually born on australian territory. >> yes, that is correct and she was born in australian territory and removed to naru and suffered an injury and now in australia and received treatment as you said in the introduction and the doctors who are concerned for her safety in the environment when she leaves the hospital and it's immigration and detention refused to discharge her on that basis. >> other australian citizens is that what she is given she was born on australian soil? >> no, she is not and australian citizen. she is somebody who is subject to removal to naru and
5:18 am
australian law doesn't recognize this as giving citizenship. >> so central to this case then is the detention or the right of the australian authorities to send people to the detention centers which is described as prison like and has been recently uphold by the courts. >> that is correct, there was a decision of the high court of australia quite recently in the last couple of weeks which found that it was still possible for the australian government to remove people who have arrived to australia but boat to the off shore detention center at naru. >> so it seems as though the case of the baby and indeed her parents is lost and they will indeed have to be deported back to naru. >> well, the baby wasn't one of the people who was subject to that particular ruling but it is
5:19 am
the current legal position that the federal government is taking to enforce, this is a family that is subject to removal. there are some legal challenges in the works that will emerge in the coming week but i'm not able to comment on those right now. but we have seen the australian government deport extremely vulnerable people, men with the resent scars of torture and women who have been sexually assaulted and indeed babies to terrible conditions in off shore detention camps. >> and judging from the number of people around you there appears to be popular sentiment in support of the baby and her family. >> yes, that is right. we have seen a ground swell of support over the last few days in particular. we've seen today and enormous gathering of trade unions which is very, very hardening and moms and dads of groups and people of this great city turn out in
5:20 am
enormous support and strength for this family and also for the doctors, the courageous doctors of the hospitals who are refusing to expose a child to a situation of grave harm. >> okay for now thank you very much indeed. we will of course keep you right up to date with the situation regarding baby ashar and her family here at al jazeera but in the meantime we are going back to the situation in syria, it has been reported that at least 14 people have died and many others are injured after a hospital and a school were hit. now this happened in azaz and in another air attack we've heard that dozens have been killed and injured at a doctors without borders facility. this in idlib and it all leads to the humanitarian crisis in syria and problem of getting aid to those in need and we speak to chris who is with united nations
5:21 am
relief fund agency and joins us live from london and you have success where you manage to make a delivery of humanitarian aid to some people in need. >> we have indeed and we welcome the fact for the first time since the 28th of march last year we have had access and indeed to the refugee camp in damascus which was taken over by i.s.i.s. on the first of april, we have been able to get aid to people from civilians i stress, civilians from yarmook and made it to the neighboring areas and within the last two days we managed to get aid to 2100 families. now the situation facing civilians there is absolutely ap pauling and clear signs that typhoid animal nutrition has broken out and we welcome this access however we need sustained access, a couple of days is good and we will build on that but we
5:22 am
need sustained humanitarian access to civilians who suffered enough. >> given the gentle situation it sounds as though these people have been facing what sort of supplies did you manage to get in? >> well, as i say 2100 families received food commodities and also need to get nonfood items and it's freezing cold and need blankets and hydrogen items and the humanitarian situation is desperate, the main water supply in yarmook has been dysfunctional for over a year now. this is a community of civilians which in any case women have died in child birth for lack of medicines and remember this palestinian community of refugees is a u.n. protected community, they have been eating grass in some instances so we need to sustain the access and need it urgently and need to build on the access that we've had in the last few days.
5:23 am
>> and given the presumably very complicated negotiations that p allowed for the delivery to be made do you feel there is something now you can build on and make future deliveries as well? >> we certainly hope so and shown we can very rapidly deploy from our main warehouse in damascus and neutrality is the family silver and unable to guaranty that quick and sustained delivery because we are so neutral so, yes, let's build on what we have got. the situation big picture in syria might be this or might be that but the fact that in this specific area suburb of damascus have had access to 2100 families and we need access to all the civilians that are there and we pray in the coming days and weeks we can build on the success. >> also chris reminder of actually how many people are in this kind of situation, across the country and the u.n. estimates it's about half a
5:24 am
million people living under siege. >> it is indeed and as far as the palestinians are concerned of the 560,000 palestinians that were there before the war, there are 450,000 left in syria, 60% of those have been displaced but about 90 plus percent of those are reliant on assistance and emergency appeal with $415 million, we launched that at the syria conference in london a few weeks ago that needs urgently to be funded because the last thing we need are refugees to leave the region and arrive in europe and of course they have the right to be refugees but don't want to be refugees and nobody wants to be a refugee awant to be in the area and we need to get assistance to thel, a fully funded getting assistance to them in the middle east. >> okay chris thank you very much. >> thank you. let's go to libya where the presidential council has named a revised list of ministers for a
5:25 am
unity government. they have been negotiating the deal in morocco for weeks and the unity government will have to be approved by the internationally recognized government in tabrook and two governments and as well as well as i.s.i.s. have been battling since the fall of gadhafi. and in yemen a number of people are dead and five people were killed, ten injured north of the capitol sanaa, many people have now fled fearing more air strikes, the coalition is fighting to restore the government which was over thrown by shia houthi rebels and let's take a breath here with rob and he has the weather and europe has changed seasons again. >> it hazard -- has reversed and in the last week we have a northerly wind and you look at this part of the chart and run
5:26 am
this for about two days and notice everything piling in from the atlantic but digging down a long way from spain and portugal and africa and one part has a rainstorm after rainstorm, that is the middle of portugal. this is more or less between porto and lisbin and halfway up portugal and this is some flooding and a lot of rain has fallen in a short time surprisingly and may not expect it to fall and it's about 99 millimeters and had 186 since the start of february so we are not really halfway through and has stopped raining substantially and the temperatures dropped from about 18 about a week ago to about 8 now and this happened throughout this part of europe including france and big temperature changes like that that produce big thunderstorms and we again had a big thunderstorm and tornado damage in the middle of france and it brought down a tree. luckily no one was hurt as far as i know but it's tornado
5:27 am
damage all the same but the eye has shifted because most action is taking place in the central mediterranean and heavy rain has already fallen particularly in southern italy and for the next couple days italy will be at significant risk of flooding. >> rob mcelway the lower price of oil has been a key fact ner dropping confidence in so many economies around the world and nigeria is one of them and relies on the monday it earns from oil but now the government is being forced to diversity and involves huge challenges as we report from near the town of dowra. >> has been a farmer all his life. at the end of the rainy season he comes out here to work on his small holding while he grows tomatos, pepper and other vegetables. he is one of the lucky few to have these leaves even if it's for six months. the land here has been abundant
5:28 am
for over a decade and there is fierce competition for it which the government says is now closed to completion. >> translator: if the dam is completed it will open up a lot of areas for conversation. we are squeezed into this tiny place because everyone wants to be close to the water. >> reporter: they get no support from the government. he told government nearly two decades ago and most of his structures are in poor shape because of the delay in putting it to use. projects like these lost their appeal as the countries have revenues. in dam is meant to have thousands of hectors of land and provide life and livestock and fishing and it has been put on hold the expectations of many families. there are similar projects across nigeria and while most people live below the poverty line. he reached the project to reach
5:29 am
his farmland and he cannot afford the fees and doesn't have the right connections to rent a plot close to the dam. from time to time he comes to the empty reservoir near his village hoping for a miracle. >> translator: for 16 years not a single drop of water came this way. i just want to see this done in my lifetime. what the government can do to change our lives completely. >> reporter: as the prizes slide the government is turning to agricultural to diversity the economy and says this dam project and many others like it will be completed but the farmers here say they will only believe it when they see the project up and running. mohamed devries, al jazeera, nigeria. a lot more to come on this al jazeera news hour including the growing concern that europe is becoming a haven for child traffickers and after the break we will be speaking to a leading charity and plus celebrating

♪ hello you are with al jazeera and these are our top stories doctors without borders says its hospital has come under attack in the syrian town of idlib killing nine people including a child and in the town of azaz at
5:32 am
least 14 civilians were killed when missiles hit a children's hospital, a school and other locations. the eu's criminal intelligence agency says more than 10,000 unaccompanied child refugees have disappeared since arriving in europe in resent months and it's feared many have become victims of trafficking. now to talk more about that is dorothy sang who works with the charity save the children and joins us live from london, this is a terrible, terrible picture, isn't it, ten,000 children possibly will disappeared and tell me how do they end up being alone, at what point do they travel on their own? >> there are lots of reasons why children might be making this journey to europe on their own and they may have sick parents or escaping afghanistan and better to be making this journey
5:33 am
on their own and may have family members across europe they are trying to meet with and in some cases they might actually have lost their parents. >> and for the most part where have these 10,000 children come from? >> it's really difficult to know the exact makeup of the children that are coming here alone because they are not often being identified when they reach europe but we know there is a mixture from afghanistan and aratray and it's difficult for us to know exactly where they have come from and it's so important they are -- there is proper facilities for them. >> so at what point in their desperate journeys should there be particular registration facilities for minors and i presume by minors we are talking under the age of 18. >> yes, that is right and so when they first arrive into europe they are coming by italy and into greece and need to be proper systems of registration and unfortunately a lot of children are very distrusting of
5:34 am
authorities whether that be because of what they experienced at home or along the journey and sometimes they might not be letting us know they are under 18, a lot will say they are over because they are making to make the journey through the rest of europe and they don't want to stop particularly if they have family members somewhere else in europe. >> given the struggling that so many european countries are faced with processing the vast number of people coming over the past year isn't it a bit unrealistic for them to have specific facilities for minors especially as you say if many of these children don't volunteer the information. >> well, we think it's really important that reception centers do have child friendly spaces. they need to have people who are trained to look out for the signs of children who are possibly on their own or who may be experiencing any kind of trauma and so save the children is working in italy and all along the routes of children

taking the children to be sure the child specific interventions are there. >> okay thank you very much indeed. now, pope francis has visited the children's hospital in mexico city and accompanied by mexico's first lady, earlier pope francis held mass in front of millions of people in a violent and poor suburb of the capitol and al jazeera's adam rainy was there. >> reporter: hundreds of thousands of people came out to celebrate mass with pope francis here on sunday in this community on the edge of mexico city, many sleeping here, camping out in freezing temperatures and said they didn't care because they wanted to share with him the message of peace and love. when he spoke during mass he spoke of trading a mexico of tune about a mexico they do not need to fear being exploded and a mexico where they do not have to fear being destroyed by dealers of death and the words his of course in reference to
5:36 am
drug gangs and r cartels and resonates with the people we have been speaking to who come from some violent places. >> translator: i hope the words can guide the mexican government and the home state of vera cruz that is corrupt and violent. >> translator: whether we are neighbors, friends or relatives it affects us all and hope he brings peace to all mexicans with the message. >> reporter: the violent community on edge in mexico city pope francis is standing in solidarity people feel with them because he is showing he understands the problems they are going through and he will continue he says to spread this message as he travels from the south of mexico all the way to the north where he will end his trip here on wednesday and where he will say a prayer for migrants so many of whom have died trying to make it to the united states. well later pope francis will visit mexico's poorest stage,
5:37 am
the largely indigenous population there has been marginalized for years and has the lowest percentage of catholics in the country and john holman has more. >> reporter: looks more like a freedom fighter than a cath willic priest, one of the movement of clergy in the south mexican place who says there are places outside of the church who are forgotten and desperate. >> translator: now pope francis is visiting and drawing attention to three kwa r -- quarters who live in poverty
5:38 am
and local politicians that act more as futile lords. >> it sgen generated a lot of violence and want to kill me and put a price on my life and first 100 and now a million pesos. >> reporter: he doesn't leave the church without volunteer body guards and this is nothing new, in 1994 an army of indigenous farmers rose up, rejecting the state and creating their own aton mouse area and the government responded pouring in troops and money to pasify indig us in communities and say authorities built thousands of houses for indigenous people and lacked services and land for crops and keep animals so virtually no one moved in. investment is also focused on
5:39 am
mega projects to exploit the state's resources. >> translator: the government is working with the sector that wants to open areas for extraction, for control not for the poor. in that way the pope's visit comes to give hope to those below and say those involved don't always win. >> reporter: that is a message that these priests have been preaching for years, now they have the top man on their side, john holman, al jazeera, chapas. the former head of haiti's parliament is being sworn in as interim president and his main task will be to quickly organize the elections, the threat of more violent protests is not far away and we report now from the capitol port au prince. >> reporter: weeks of tension and protest in haiti and many hope he is the man to take the country out of the current
