1:07 pm
those -- the group for y.p.g., although it denies any involvement in the explosion. the y.p.g. in syria is a separatist group drawn mainly that has been fighting the government for decades the investigation into the attack continues. so far nine people linked have been taken into custody. and others have been. >> more and more of a concern in turkey in recent hospitals. but in october. outside the disability after a man blew himself up with a historic site popular with tourists in istanbul. all of these attacks are linked to the war in syria. turkey has been saying that
1:08 pm
the allies need to support it in it's fight against those that have caused terrorist, but as far as the u.s. and other western powers are concerned the y.p.g. are their ally manager the war against isil. now hay say the international community must rectify that policy. >> if they gain -- >> the p.y.d. in the north of syria, and the links with the p.k.k. we have touched upon, we have said repeatedly there's a strong lynch between them, but this will help us understand. we have been saying and sooner or later they will understand. and those that support them will be judged. >> early on thursday. it belongs to the p.k.k.? northern iraq. they have been shelling forces for weeks now as well. it wants to send in ground troops just across the border syria. so long as syria and the allies control the sky, that option appears to be off the
1:09 pm
table. unless nato and the partners agree to support them. continues to be at odds with that of it's allies. and that difference of opinion looks like it remain as problem. let's go down very close to the syrian border. and hear from zana. >> turkish authorities are promising to deal a blow to whether it is calling terrorist groups. now, the turkish authorities they have been at war with the pkk for several months now targeting their positions the southeast has been a battleground for months hours

1:11 pm
they are promising to put up a fight, at the moment, turkey hasn't been able to convince the western allies to conduct a ground operation, they have been trying to push for this for sometime. and a violation of international law. so the situation is tense, turkey promising to continue it a emcampaign and the ypp, but at the moment, the military action inside syria would be very difficult p over syria. . >> carries out by 14, convicted so far. >> the military base was over run by isil. is in baghdad.
1:12 pm
>> and pass the sentence on 16 of the men accused of the camps fight massacre, and handed down death sentences also dismissed the case against seven of the men for lack of evidence, the evidence is really the key thing that has caused a lot of controversy here in iraq. quite simply they haven't been able to see what evidence is against these men, and why they have been here for this massacre. when this occurred it was hugely controversial. when they took over, they moved into camps base and they massacred up to 1500 or up to 1700 iraqi cadets they do bury these cadets were unarmed or at least lightly armed. they are very brutal and controversial at the time, and now you speak to a lot of the people from the militias and from the iraqi army, and
1:13 pm
they will tell you one reason that they are fighting against isil is because of this massacre, and for that reason, this trial has been highly politically charged. now this has been going on for a year and a half. it's been adjourned and delays we have never been given a reason why it has been adjourned and delayed. we did see 24 people also convicted of the massacre, and they were sentenced to death, but they haven't been carried out yet, but it is very controversial. it's been a very politically charged trial. >> an israeli court has requests a request by a palestinian journalist to be moved to a hospital in the west bank. after he started refusing food in protest at his detention. he was arrested in november under a controversy israeli policy that allowed detention without charge or trial. a bus crash in new gahni has

as he tries to return with the reform package ahead of the e.u. that can be held as soon as june. but he faces resistence from other e.u. leaders to summon his key demands including the limit on the benefits migrants claim. it will be a long night. emma hayward our correspondent, not just for the press, but for those trying to thrash this, any since of where thises to going? >> not yet, david. they are many the meeting, they have been in there for more than an hour, and we expect it to be a long night. we will occasionally get some kind of details of what is coming out of the meeting but not so far. when may arrived at lot of the leaders were making similar leaders saying they wanted the u.k. to stay in the e.u. but not at huge costs for the rest of the union. david cameron said that he wanted the best deal for britain possible.
1:16 pm
>> we have some important work to do today and tomorrow, and it is going to be hard. i will be battling for britain. if we can get a good deal,ly not take a deal that doesn't meet what we need. i think it is much more important to get this right, than to do anything in a rush. with goodwill, and hard work, we can get a better deal. >> once he leaves having done so much hard work he would say he is going to leave a harder job when he gets back to the u.k. i would suggest. >> yeah, really difficult job. of course he has to convince the other leaders that the plan that is on the table tonight, and tomorrow, is the right one not just for him but for the rest of the e.u. and also on issues with financial regulations. he wants the best deal possible, because in some
1:17 pm
ways he is stating his political reputation on this, it is part of the manifesto, to hold this. and if you look at the polls back in the u.k., it is pretty much people sitting on the fence about which they they will vote. >> not just about the country as a whole, but it has wider implications for europe and it's partners. >> being pushed further apart, what is uncertain is the european union witness
1:18 pm
five years he wants turkey to be a member. there's uncertainty when you walk out of the front door every morning. the first time ever, honestly told the citizens that wanted to build effectively the united states and europe, the french said no, the dutch said no, and no one doubts that any other countries would have said no too. nowhere, but nowhere across the continent, have the people said they want a political union trade and cooperation yes, but not a political union. i have been saying very very clearly, since last april that the implication of the european union was a huge mistake. they had had redesigned what the reputation was that era
1:19 pm
was compounded and politician have simply said that enough is enough. so with that too uncertainty, not just with the euro zone, if i was living in one of those countries and i had seen what had happened on new year's eve, where 1,000 men in full publish view, were pesters and molesting women openly many the street, i would say to myself, goodness me, i want to protect my country against this. so don't be surprise if the actions are not followed by several others. >> good fences make good neighbors and there are 200
1:20 pm
countries in the world. that make their own laws who control their own borders and decide who can come and live and work in settling their country. that is normality. speaking different languages to live and work and wreath together both economic or dealing with migrants. it is never going to work. and we the british have the honor, perhaps, of beginning the end of it. it is my country, in the united kingdom, and indeed my own family, where french propertity stands massacred 300 years ago, and came to britain. we have a wave of jewish migration, britain has the best record of anybody doing this. you need to define what a refugee is. and what they have done is broadens that definition to
1:21 pm
say that it is anybody displaced by war. the united nations says that currently, 59 million people, globally, displaced by war. europe cannot cope with countless numbers it needs to redefine who a refugee is. a refugee is an individual in direct fear of persecution because of their religion, faith, or beliefs. pope francis women who are threatened by the zika virus could perhaps use contraception. the pope was talking on a flight back to rome. expressing his views about the u.s. hopeful donald trump saying he is not christian. and added that his views on immigration wanting to build a wall with mexico simply are not christian. at the end of the day, a
1:22 pm
human being is a political animal. well, maybe,ly leave that up to your judgement. on things about making walls again and again, and not making bridges is not a christian. >> joining us live from washington, forthright statements from the pope on the plane, and retaliation from mr. trump. >> indeed, it wasn't the pope just speaking out of the blue, we have to back up and help to understand that in fact he was responding to statements that were made by donald trump in p advance of the visit to mexico. in fact, it's not surprising that we have heard prime minister the pope weighing in on political issues he is a political person, he has in fact even spoken to a session of the u.s. congress. so he has weighed into issues before, and he was in those comments responding to statements that were made by donald trump. basically saying donald trump
1:23 pm
said the pope is a political person, more importantly what he said is he doesn't understand the complexities of the issues between the united states and mexico. that he doesn't understand in donald trump words the dangers of an open border between the united states and mexico. and that is what prompted the statements by the pope. saying that donald trump is not a good christian. but he went further to really address the point that he has been making on the campaign trail for some time, not just saying there could be increased deportations but also there should be a wall that should be built up along the border between the united states and mexico, and even calling immigrants illegal immigrants to the united states criminal, and rapists. well, not to be outdone, donald trump responded to those statements by the pope once again. the pope is being doled that donald trump. donald trump is a very nice person. and i am a very nice person. and i am a very good christian. because the pope said something to the effect that maybe donald trump isn't
1:24 pm
christian. okay. and he is questionable my faith. i was very surprised to see it, but i am a christian. and proud of it. for religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. i am proud to be a christian. and as president i will not allow chestianty to be consistly attacks and weakened unlike what is happening now with our current president. >> the question now is whether or not this will have an impact, very public spat between donald trump who is the republican front runner and the pope who spokes on behalf of hundreds of thousands of catholics around the world, whether or not this spat will have an impact on a very important and presidential nominating contest that is comings up this weekend, in south carolina, donald trump is leading there, and i have to tell you after covering u.s. politics for 34 years i don't think that this will have an impact even though mrs. a very large number of
1:25 pm
evangelical or devout christians and also in nevada where there's also another important contest coming up. the people that seem to be attracted to donald trump as a potential president are valued voters, certainly christianity is one thing that impacts their decision. but they also care about foreign policy, economic issues so if i had to sort of put bets on this, i would say well this will be cause for pause with many here in the united states is not going to have a significant impact on the upcoming nominee. >> never the less, it is all adds spice to a very strange call for politics at the moment. kimberly, thank you. one of the main things of this year's berlin film festival is the search for security and a better life. on thursday, hosting a special screening one high profile film but it's directors will not be there. they are all children who live in refugee camps in the middle east. nadine barber explains.

1:28 pm
intense one for all involved and for one member of the team, it is led to death threats. he is now seeking asylum in germany. >> i had to leave iraq, i went to tushky and then on to greece by boat, and now i am in germany, as a film maker it is hard for me doing that great work ever, and then being forced to leave my country. the issue hassing with a lot more controversial since the country took on 1 million refugees. this year's fill. festival is providing a reminder of the kind of conditions many of those refugees have left behow about. nadine barber berlin. >> coming up how the barack obama plans to make history in cuba next month. as the country heads to election, and in sport. china's new million million dollar signing report.
