rights this is al jazeera hello. welcome to the al jazeera news hour live from our headquarters in doha. coming up in the next 60 minutes, i.s.i.l. claims responsibility for a suicide bombing in iraq that has killed at least 60 people. greece calls on the e.u. to take some of the thousands of refugees trapped within its borders. tributes pour in for nancy
6:01 pm
reagan who has died' age of 94. >> reporter: may tonne manning is set to retire after 18 seasons at the stop of the support -- sport we begin in iraq where at least 60 people were killed in a suicide bombing on sunday. dozens of people were wounded in the blast which happened near hilla south of the capital. i.s.i.l. says it carried out the attack. >> reporter: the tanker drugging blew up one of the busiest checkpoints on a main road. it was carrying explosives. there was almost nothing left here. i.s.i.l. took responsibility for the blast north of hilla. this is almost 90 kilometers south of baghdad. on the main road leading to the shia shrines and the coastal city of basra. iraqi soldiers and police manned
6:02 pm
the check point. many of the other casualties were believed to be civilians. >> translation: the blast mass completely destroyed the check point and its builds. more than 10-- buildings. more than 100 cars have been damaged. we have strongly condemned the attack. >> reporter: iraqi security forces are driven i.s.i.l. fighters out of ramadi and recently recaptured hundreds of kilometers of desert. as i.s.i.l. loses more territory, it seems to have stepped up its attacks on civilian targets. many will be asking how a truck full of explosives was able to make it that far along the road with multiple checkpoints for more on this we're joined by a military analyst and senior fellow at the trueman
6:03 pm
official security project. he is joining us live from new york. very good to have you with us. we're seeing another deadly attack near the iraqi capital one week after that attack. is this i.s.i.l.'s response to losing territory elsewhere in iraq? >> yes. i think it's a response to that. it is a change in tactic going after soft targets. much further away fra where they currently hold grounds. they likely want to get in, create this kind of headline and damage and then get out, not have a big footprint or presence there. it is a change in strategy going away from conventional warfare through to terrorist operation $inside of iraq itself can we expect more of these attacks as they lose more ground, can the iraqi government, can the military actually stop the group from these insurgent attacks? >> i think we can expect more
6:04 pm
attacks as the iraqi forces are focused really in the north, the battle to retake mosul, for example, in fallujah. i think that while that happens, the economy of force and they can't focus on security in these southern regions, south of baghdad, for example. i think the shia soft targets are those traditional ly shia cities will have to step up their security, again away from the where the iraqi security forces are because they can't be in all places at all times. they are going to have to figure out a way to improve security in those softer places how will they do that? >> i think first they're going to have to improve their check point security. it consists along the road networks. they are going to have to stop and inspect trucks. these fuel tankers, things that move with relative ease now will
6:05 pm
likely come to a little bit of a halt here. you're hurting the civilian economy and creating friction for the civilians. that will create a problem. there's this trade-off whether they want to do that and feel safe and secure. they will look to do all they can to step up intel reports, stop to see if they see anything suspicious. they will have to get the locals involved to have a greater presence to avoid these attacks happening in the future how do you think locals would feel about that? would they be willing? >> i think they're going to have to really think this through because knowing that there are higher target-- they're a higher target for i.s.i.s., they're going to have to decide whether they will get involved or not. i think they will. it will force the sunnis together in these populations. normally it's she eadown in bag
6:06 pm
tad-- shia down in baghdad, but there will be improvements. the entire police station was destroyed, buildings around it and so other checkpoints that are similar to that are going to have to take a much more over the horizon approach on how they look at security. if they're going to get hit again, they want that target to be well far out from where the cities in the built-up areas are thank you for that. to the european refugee crisis. the greek prime minister is demanding the immediate relocation of thousands of refugees who are trapped at its border with macedonia. thousands have been stranded there after macedonia tightened its border controls. u.n. and other balkan states have been accused of not sharing the burden >> translation: since it is closed for the refugees, in the turkish shore to the islands, it
6:07 pm
has to become clear that the immediate start of a process of relocation of refugees from our country to other states of the european union is a matter of the utmost urgency. this is exactly what we seek on monday at the emergency summit the e.u. has called for a meeting in brussels on monday to discuss how to deal with the refugee crisis. here is an idea of how many people are affected. up to 14,000 are stuck on the greek side of the border with macedonia. the e.u. migration commissioner is warning there could be more than 100,000 refugees trapped if greece by the end of the month. european nations still can't agree on how to handle the crisis. angela merkel has criticised greece of failing to build structures to hold 50,000 people. >> reporter: it has become the symbol of europe's failure and disunity when it comes to refugees. the border that remains more closed than open.

the latest selection system to cross into macedonia depends on the date on arrival in greece. these hoer landed on phenomenon 17. these the following day. >> translation: i have no more money. my son went to the germany and the trip took him ten days. >> reporter: the daily cap of 500 to be allowed to transit through the balkans is barely met. people here roam around in search for answers. over the past three weeks the camps spread from a transit one designed for 1500 people. that's where the big tents are, to this ever sprawling multi colored tent village. the makeshift camp stretches across both sides of the rail track. the long queue on the right is for food. the area of high extension is from north to the crossing
6:09 pm

6:12 pm
headlines stayed the same. outrage. the free press can't be silenced, they chanted. they held newspapers up almost as shields. i came here to support the newspaper that was unlawfully seized by the government. >> reporter: automatic the issue stem from the cleric and his organizations. the take over is considered part of a wider state crackdown on his movement. while the prime minister defended the move as legal, it is just a long line taken against journalists who are critical against the government. one reporter described how bad
6:13 pm
things had got for her >> i'm immensely worried. it makes you sick to your stomach, it gives you headaches, but we really feel that the police are watching our every step and they are, they're listening to us. they shut down our email accounts yesterday, they shut down the internet. they're doing everything possible to intim daylight us and prevent us from producing the news. >> reporter: while the protesters were kept away from the front doors of the office, they gathered streets away. >> reporter: they're rchg to leave even though security officials are telling them repeatedly now that they must go and that what they are doing is illegal and they are blocking the road and they would be moved if they refused to leave. this man angrily approached the
6:14 pm
police about the brutality demonstrators are faced 24 hours earlier when scenes like this were played out. eventually the crowd heeded et warnings and began to leave. while the pitch of their anger hadn't lessened, the tone of the newspaper they were defending had changed drastically. skroo what a difference a day makes. today's edition is much smaller and it has a far softer substance to the government. there was no mention of the protests egypt has arrested 14 people in connection with a death of a senior state official. chief prosecutor died in a car

6:16 pm
clinton was looking strong after super tuesday, but with sanders winning those two states on saturday, how much has the race evened up? >> it still hasn't really evened up at all. because of the way this system works and in terms of the presidential nominating contest. you have to win and pick up delegates in delegate-rich states. that didn't happen for bernie sanders. although he picked up two states, hillary clinton on saturday evening actually picked up more delegates that will head to that convention, that national convention where they will vote ultimately for the party nominee. so for bernie sanders what he needs to do is he needs to win in these delegate rich states. there is an opportunity to do that on march 15 when sthats on ohio illinois, florida, will all be voting. bernie sanders has a challenge. what he has been winning in largely are states that are not very diverse.
6:17 pm
where hillary clinton that has an edge where she tends to win in states where diverse group of voters, so again he needs to try and make some headway in states where he is going to pick up more delegates and with a more diverse voting body of course, they are about to go ahead to head in the debate tonight taking place in flint that has had its fair share of economic troubles. tell us about the significance of the location of tonight's debate. >> reporter: this is especially significant for a number of reasons. first of all, flint michigan, the state of michigan, will hold its presidential nominating contest, it's primary on tuesday. this is an opportunity for the candidates to make the case about why necessity believe they would best represent the needs of a population that has been struggling in the short-term as well as the long-term. in the short-term there has been the flint water crisis. this has been going on since april 2014. water was diverted from a clean water source to a more
6:18 pm
contaminated source that fed into the drinking supply for the residents of flint, michigan. led leached into their water sly and they've been dealing with that ever since. obviously, that has led poisoning effects which are very harmful to children. so here the candidates will be talking about that in the debate, how they feel they can improve those lives. the second thing is this is a population that has been strumging in flinlt and larger in michigan because of the globalise sayings, loss-- globalisation, loss of jobs. people are struggling through that. you will see themes, racial, inequality, economic unfairness, all of the issues plaguing the state for a long time t they will be making the case that they're the ones that can lift them up from decades of struggle thank you for that. the former u.s. foyers lady nanc
