5:02 am
number of villages in aleppo's western countryside. they are saying they are targetting al nusra front, which is the rebel group with links to al-qaeda. that group was excluded in the truce deal and agreement between the u.s. and russia. activists are saying, denying the presence of al nusra front in the three villages in aleppo. there's also fighting in latakia. the rebels there have been attacked by government forces, accusing the regime of killing their members. the latest development, according to russia's newsagency, it is saying that it

5:04 am
and the syrian regime and americans are involved. you have stefan demist era saying there are mechanisms. you can guess how complicated it is, and the rebels are monitoring the ceasefire. >> it's a complicated situation. is it less complicated when it comes to aid deliveries. >> this is the hope for the u.n. there was a statement red to 24 february and in that statement he expected a convoy will go to the besieged areas.
5:05 am
we are told that because of logistical reasons that has not happened. they hope by monday they'll get the necessary paperwork, and you can imagine the logistics of setting up convoys to do different areas is complicated. you need permission from the government and you need to coordinate with whoever is in control of certain areas. the areas that the u.n. spect to deliver aid to, they've had aid in the last few days before the ceasefire started. in areas that has been besieged for years, they haven't had any sort of aid. >> all 30 parliamentary seats in tehran, iran's biggest voting district have been taken by
5:06 am
reformis reformists. it's a change from previous elections, dominated by conservatives. it's seen as a test for hassan rouhani, after he secured a nuclear deal with world world last year. let's take a closer look at the results. voting was held to fill the 290 seat parliament and an 88 member assembly of experts. that's the body responsible for selecting the next supreme leader. al lies of hassan rouhani, and the former president lead the race for the assembly of experts. in parliament results show reformists took the 30 seats, as i mentioned. let's go live to jonah hull. i imagine the smile on hassan rouhani's face got a bit bigger today. >> you'd have to guess that. the results are looking like an
5:07 am
astounding endorsement of him and his policies in a way with the nuclear deal, and the lifting of international sanctions. the final picture will emerge in the coming hours, but the adrian brown results are astonishing. let's get analysis from my guest, a professor from the tehran university. a clean sweep for reformists and moderates in tehran, that doesn't indicate a majority in the country. massive advances and a big endorsement. >> yes, i think in tehran the president will be happy that he did very well. the results across iran are amazing. the second largest city, you have the principalist win. >> the principalist being the
5:08 am
ultra conservatives. >> for the moderate conservativives, they are different groups and parties. two very large cities that are mixed, it's mixed across the bored. i would have thought that the result in the major cities would be similar to one another. but they are different. >> to be clear, we are not talking about a win for the reformists, they pooled reformists with prague mattists or moderates. they would have had a big boost. dissent on the streets. the locking up of their world. is there an open half to reform. >> this generation has had
5:09 am

5:10 am
they'll have a strong presence, and there are conservative safeguards built into the system. how do you think they may react to the result? >> i don't think anyone has problems with the result. i think it's welcome. the next parliament - i think everyone won in a way. president hassan rouhani had an endorsement in tehran. he didn't win across the country. on the other hand, the principalist did poorly in tehran, the reformist, the sort of performer, i think they lost. but the moderate reformist wants. everyone can spin it in their own way and say it was a victory. taking into account that this region is unstable and we are surrounded by civil war and
5:11 am
dictatorships, the faster tehran has the elections and they are unpredictable is a huge plus for the country. >> we'll leave it there. the headline will be a big endorsement for the reformist. the subtext, no sea change overnight. >> thank you so much. jonah hull from tehran. >> reports from yemen say 30 people have been killed in air strikes in a market outside the capital. no one claimed responsibility. security officials are blaming the saudi-led coalition. locals say mean of the dead are civilians. forces loyal for the government, backed by the coalition troops, trying to retake sanaa, which fell to houthi rebels in 2014. the brigadier general, the spokesperson says he doubts civilians were killed. >> have been hearing the

5:16 am
the most dangerous places in the world. to be a miner. there are many reasons for this. there's a load of poorly maintained areas. and they have been upkept or developed. and then there's the safety regulations which are there on paper, but not properly enforced. and adding on top of that, the fact that many of the mines are in the remote part of russia. it's way up in the arctic circle. when things go wrong, and they do regularly. there was a vital accident in 2006 that killed 100 people, and another in 2010. when the accidents happen in the remote parts of russia, it's difficult to put into place a proper rescue operation. >> rory challands there from
