most of province and this border area is the focal point of what turkish authorities refer to as a serious campaign. and the free syrian army is sending reinforcements to that i had. the starting point for the new cross border campaign. thank you but which has thousands of fighters is vowing to fight to the death news of the new campaign is raising concerns for civilians in there. if the turkish army enters back by russian planes that have committed a massacre a few days ago an army is that is for sure and acceptable to me and to any muslim who rejects the presence of occupiers in our country. the russians are the first and last enemy of the syrian people they are backing bashar al assad how can they be supporting the syrian people. the new push by turkey comes after an agreement

5:09 am
everyday person. one thing they have in common though is that they stand on issues look and sound the same. and this is forcing many voters to narrow their choices down to all the allegiances of tribal region and personality we seen. the population not. candidates with developmental. programs or with. many political observers believe that voters are not asking the right questions which is really. a newborn democracy is. too corny is a product of the country's broken education system. she and her neighbor take turns teaching their children the little the know this let's not use.
5:10 am
my children the sick. i mean the. literacy rate here is about thirty percent. some candidates have promised better life for librarians from poverty reduction to education and providing infrastructure one thing that seemed to have what the one so far is a campaign. to record itself remarkable development program that emerged from. the election hopes. the election commission is confident of successful elections that could lead to a transition from one democratic government to another for the first time in more than forty as. one of the challenges we had of course were. so in
5:11 am
part of our country a difficult to reach because. we were blessed to have the graciously agreed to provide support to transport. a presidential aspirant more than fifty percent of the vote to avoid a run of legislators though a simple majority. greece. north korea's leader kim jong un has described the nation's nuclear weapons program a powerful deterrent he's also said relations with the u.s. are complicated and earlier in a tweet us presidents donald trump said that quote only one thing would work in dealing with pyongyang didn't specify what that one thing was but he has previously threatened to totally destroy north korea also accused iran of funding north korea's regime under the twenty fifty nuclear deal iran has agreed to limit its
5:12 am
nuclear program in return for relieving economic sanctions that all reports trump may decertify the deal i believe they're funding north korea i believe they're trading with north korea i believe they're doing things with korea that is totally inappropriate that doesn't pertain to the deal but in my opinion it does because it's called the spirit of it. and you will see what i will be doing in the. iran is a bad player. they will be taken care of as a bad player. on the news. comes together to mourn the victims of a shooting that killed fifty eight. hundred sports a busy day and. we're going to join. another
5:13 am
boat packed with refugees escaping violence in. his capsized two people died when it sank in a river separating bangladesh it's unclear how many missing eleven refugees have been rescued the tragedy occurred. on the tip of bangladesh it's the third such incident. and that's when me and ma began a military crackdown in iraq five children died on september the six at the mouth of river nuff. on the twentieth of september sixty people drowned in a similar accident on the same river more than one hundred on board the vessel when . more than half a million people have taken shelter in camps in bangladesh to escape the violence which the un has called a textbook example of ethnic cleansing. well let's cross to mohammed.
5:14 am
mohammed this latest tragedy with his boat capsizing just to the problems they are in bangladesh. you know that's right robin i think this really speaks to the magnitude of this crisis fact of the matter is it is extremely dangerous for these refugees who are fleeing violence me and mark to try to cross. these capsizing these boats sinkings they keep happening and yet still these refugees who are desperate to find some sort of safe haven who are fleeing for their lives they keep taking these boats and they keep coming in the u.n. has said that really there's no end in sight to this crisis that you now have well over half a million people that have come to bangladesh just in the last six weeks and they don't expect that that the flow. of this number of humans will stop they
5:15 am
believe that only more people will be coming in the weeks and months ahead so that is a great concern we're trying to get more details from the border guards here about this specific incident according to some of the border guards as you mentioned there were eight people that were rescued two people at least two people have been killed but i can tell you at this hour it is expected that that death toll will rise rob mom and even if refugees are able to make it to bangladesh their problems don't stop there do they. know they certainly don't in fact for many of them conditions really have have worsened let me try to explain why first let's talk about the inclement weather it is brutally hot and brutally humid here you're talking about people that are coming into makeshift camps in this weather they are trying to shelter themselves against the heat the humidity and the
5:16 am
rain as well utilizing most of the time only tarp and bamboo that is what most of them build their tents from that is hardly enough to try to survive such. such bad weather as they are experiencing right now then you have the unsanitary conditions in these camps they are already on a hygenic when it rains here which it often does it only becomes more and hygenic this is why so many of the aid workers that we've been speaking with are concerned about the spread of diseases about the rise of epidemics there's a great concern that there could be cases of cholera that could start here any day perhaps that's according to unicef and other aid organizations but also when you speak to so many of these refugees tales of atrocities begin to emerge we've spoken to many the last few days who say that they were brutalized by the military in me and more that is why they fled for their lives we talked to one young man an eighteen year old boy named mohammed to a hoss and who said that he was shot three times by me and mars army in the village
5:17 am
of hmong not here's his story. despite the relief his family tries to provide eighteen year old or hindu a refugee mohammed to hussen is still haunted for a while his mother and siblings try to give him a brief respite from the extreme heat and humidity but no matter how much medicine is given or the number of bandages applied his scars both physical and psychological will remain. in live as if they took it out from a home and to hands behind our backs they pulled us along the roads and kicked as they pulled us through the village through the jungle and took us to join another group of people then they made as lie down on top of one another mohammed will says when soldiers from me and mars army began shooting at them he was hit twice in the back. at first he pretended to be dead but then again when i opened my eyes to see
5:18 am
if they'd left a note when i opened my eyes they saw me and shot me here two of his brothers were killed in the army's attack on mungo a village in iraq and stayed on august twenty seventh mohammed all was convinced he also would not survive a mood in the clinton road and i thought i would die so i prayed i thought to myself i'm not going to see my relatives anymore mohamed tools brother sure if i was desperate to get him some help they're going to doctors but they're not doctors we couldn't find any doctor there was military everywhere so i couldn't go to the pharmacy and get him any medicine people were telling me i should go break down the door of the pharmacy and bring him medicine but i couldn't go there because of the military no choice tells us that in addition to his two brothers who were killed dozens more of his relatives were also executed during the attack a recent report by human rights watch included interviews with witnesses and survivors who told the organization that me and morris military didn't just carry out mass killings that day but that they also sexually assaulted stabbed and beat
5:19 am
villagers who were gathering for safety in a residential compound and while the un has called the actions of man mars military a textbook example of ethnic cleansing mean wars government has categorically denied carrying out any atrocities against the rangers. or muhammad tools heartbroken mother there is no time to dwell on the past taking care of her family even in conditions as miserable as these is her priority as a living why didn't they when i see my sons williams i don't feel like going back to our village and also i set fire to a high and they said if i am everywhere we saw that and we had no choice but to leave they may have been able to leave the violence behind but for mohammed it's clear the horror of what he lived through will never really go away. you know rob when you go into these makeshift camps
5:20 am
well i'm sorry what was the last i linked to cox is bizarre jim they were trying to get him back later on in the meantime let's carry on the simon business is executive director of the international campaign fall there again jay he says pressure has to be put on me and military to end the atrocities but as denials mean nothing the evidence is right clear what will cause the burmese army to listen is when you know we embargo any kind. to the burmese army and when we sanction individual members of the army make it clear to them that they can face prosecution . internet international criminal court and also if we go off their business interests including you know their involvement in the precious gem trade you know we can we can put effective pressure on the burmese army and its business interests and that's what they listen to you know just a couple of weeks ago shareholders with approximately thirty billion dollars of
5:21 am
assets under management wrote to chevron. demanding that chevron not do business with governments engaged in genocide or crimes against humanity right now working with shareholders in other oil companies in burma and also shareholders in these jewelry retailers and these companies listen to their shareholders but they also listen to their customers as well and you know we expect that more and more people will be demanding the jury retail is not even stock in egypt is made in burma and we're also going to be researching how the business interests of the burmese army has and use that as a way of putting pressure on the army to end this abuse and then this ethnic cleansing. they're calling themselves the silent majority and they've been out in force in barcelona in spain as catalonia region hundreds of thousands of people traveled from all over the country to make their call for unity exactly one week
5:22 am
after catalonia has secession vote the referendum has plunged spain into political crisis and as john holl reports both sides are only hardening their positions. barcelona has seen plenty of huge demonstrations but not like this one see red line yellow the. flying alongside the spanish national flag. gripped calls for independence this is a highly unusual show of national unity. some have come from other parts of spain but most are from catalonia itself tony rolled down his accountant and politician opposed to independence we have me the best he had the prosperity and peace. the last forty years since a new jersey boys finish was over and we have monies to build the framework that works for everyone i think the future belongs to you i just think that we need to
5:23 am
do better from national language to govern ourselves. doesn't make sense when they call themselves the silent majority was. represented as the right choice and not being. silent no one surely. you know who for one moment described an atmosphere of hostility towards those who disagree with the push for independence. i was. right. and given. the opportunity to speak out many embraced really tired of being the majority and the people to say that we are not we are the majority because the
5:24 am
union has a force he's common sense independent schools in this region with its distinct culture and language a centuries old but the stakes have never been higher in madrid prime minister mariano rajoy warns he may use special powers to revoke catalonia. the regional government meanwhile is considering a unilateral declaration of independence in the weeks to come but who will follow them these people who seem to have found their voices jonah al-jazeera pass alone. people in las vegas are mourning the victims of last week's mass shooting fifty eight people were killed when a gunman opened fire at a music concert from a nearby hotel room hundreds more were injured i'll just see it as kristen salumi reports. all around las vegas sunday was a day to remember the victims and support the survivors of the largest mass shooting in recent history each cross representing one of the fifty eight people

5:26 am
a stampede of animals screaming trampling each other pushing it was surreal never been through anything like it. they came together to play as well as pray the university of nevada football game began with a tribute and special recognition for first responders. the. jones sang the national anthem at the game just as she did at the concert the night of the shooting its takeaway if anyone lost anyone is that they were having fun they were loving our country and they blessed us that night. and. the city scarred but determined to stay strong christian salumi al-jazeera las vegas nevada. still ahead an al-jazeera. reporting van be and many of the children fleeing violence in the democratic republic of congo are children i'll tell you how some of them are trying to survive in a new country. you are cheap seats the probably wouldn't offer the best view of the

5:28 am
it's going to trundle on into. so i think communications across northern vietnam could well be cut at times by this really intense rainfall cool some real problems are conditions generally quite as through much of choose day and northern areas may much area looking quite fine at the moment now as we head then southeastern parts of asia we've got a scattering of showers across the philippines another may see want to showers during the day few showers for borneo but nothing untoward. looking largely dry at the moment moving up through them and i think we have showers to singapore in kuala lumpur and looks fairly wet across southern parts of thailand that continues to head on through into tuesday bangkok there with a mix of thirty one degrees into south asia and the satellite imagery shows quite nicely the circulation towards the north and to the bay of bengal giving some really heavy showers for both the far north east of india and also bangladesh that's going to continue looking at some wet weather and also seeing wanted to shower down through the western ghats the weather sponsored by qatar.

seven people in the capital acra it happened after a gas tanker caught fire forty other people were injured while than one hundred thousand people are without power in the u.s. after how dick and nate hit the gulf coast the worst affected states mississippi alabama and louisiana made quickly weakened and has since been downgraded to a tropical storm there been no deaths or injuries reported in the u.s. as a result but up to thirty people were killed when the heart of can hit central america has more from new orleans so a huge sigh of relief certainly here in new orleans where it seems as though the flood defenses built in the aftermath of the devastating hurricane katrina of two thousand and five have held out the mississippi river here behind me and behaving itself. nate became a category one hurricane but we juiced to a tropical storm shortly after making landfall there has been substantial damage in some parts of the region severe flooding certainly in the city of biloxi
5:37 am
mississippi and other places people have been out early this morning sunday morning here assessing the damage to property several tens of thousands of houses with the power out stories he's out trying to restore that as soon as they possibly can and it's a very different story in central america where the tropical storm as it then was hit several countries in the region killing at least twenty five people causing substantial damage the flooding still apparently as a people working to assess what damage was done in that region very different story here there has still been damage but very peaceful morning here here in new orleans people coming out assessing what damage might have been done to their properties and dealing with the little flooding that there has been. countries across latin america have been marking the fiftieth anniversary of the death of save several thousand people have attended a ceremony in the cuban city of santa clara to remember the revolutionary fighter
5:38 am
without a became known for his role in the cuban revolution of one nine hundred fifty nine fighting alongside fidel and raul castro is in yemen takes a look at his legacy. perhaps no revolutionary has been as romanticized as a new style divider or chair as he was known. the arjen time born dr who fought by fidel castro side played a key role in the cuban revolution then tried to launch marxist uprisings in the congo and then bolivia where he was captured and executed the images taken after his death in which many say he looked like christ only added to his legend as a left wing martyr. the oscar winning film motorcycle diaries was based on his early years. when he was fourteen harry yes joined chair in the fight for revolution in the cuban mountains for the next twelve years he never left his side
5:39 am
until he miraculously managed to escape capture during chase final battle against the bolivian army. we had behind bushes and on a small radio we heard the news the cherry had been captured and killed the wings of our hearts found the yes' says the cheers reputation as a tough but just revolutionary who practiced what he preached was well earned. he felt because he had more education and thus you had a great obligations to set the example and always lead by example he never cut himself a break so that he could demand the best from us. today to give out his image has become immortalized especially in cuba some would probably say tour much to give out or has become the ultimate revolutionary i call and i must have all the tourists that come to this island his face is absolutely everywhere from these bags to. t. shirts as you can see to knapsacks everything you can possibly imagine the kind of image that you give out a himself would probably not have approved of. but he would surely have been proud
5:40 am
to know that for the last fifty years cuban schoolchildren have been taught to follow his example every morning and every day they recite this chant. it means pioneers for communism we shall be like. the do the new generations of cubans really believe that we consulted a group we found trying to access a wife i signal next to an internet cafe for me it's like a poem that you memorized but you don't act on it very few people actually follow and chase footsteps we all think differently today chase marxist version of revolution is considered by most as an anachronism yet the consensus here seems to be the chair represents an ideal a selfless rebel unlike so many others did not live to betray his principles and it's that image of change that has never aged you see in human.
5:41 am
well john is on skype from new york is michael casey he's the author of chase off to life the legacy of an image thank you very much for being with us do you think that cheney's image has overshadowed the human being behind it. by the states yes i think that i would also suggest a lot of people don't even really know that that image is true i mean even if you came and i can quite separate it from the human being so i think when we talk about his legacy we can actually talk about two separate legacies one is of the man who was a very distinct human being with certain views and certain positions that were radical and dramatic and had a certain impact on the world and then the image that was created after. that there's an entirely different result from so we have really a dichotomy in that what show his legacy is how did the image that picture of che
5:42 am
move into the global consciousness how did it make its way there. yes so in my book that was pretty much what i focused on to start with i don't other issues as well but the book really was an attempt to try to come to terms with how this what it means and i would argue is the most reproduced image in history and i'm actually talking there about all the derivative works that the con is. not so much like just a massive replication of an image like marilyn monroes images and when you took that shaded everywhere in a multiple forms and in representing different forms are all stems from a photo taken by others of color in one nine hundred sixty and that image. basically things that cubans are targets but it really didn't get much play it was played in a local newspaper once or twice but then sort of disappeared out of you and then was resurrected and that's a kind of telling would in some respects around the time of change.
5:43 am
you know basically now fifty years ago and. castro in my view was instrumental in that was there was a lot of lorelei's in china at that time and the image was placed in the public consciousness and sort of cash to this idealized version of revolution that castro himself next that we needed to create this time because it the reality was that the cuban revolution was losing its idealism castro was signing on to the soviet union's demands that he didn't buy into their you're a critic take on communism and that he would support their invasion of the czech czechoslovakia for example and he needed to revise at least in the image to the sort of grand. and truly revolutionary and lasting self. and it just happened to be perfect timing because you had. the not should not long after that you had the op rising in paris you had the summer of love. in the. u.s.
5:44 am
. pop pop art which was a critical factor in the extraction of that image. into this iconic. suddenly taking lives and. all of this came together in the other key fact that i would point to is that castro had deliberately removed cuba from the convention which was the international treaty on copyright rules clearing copyright to be a capitalist tool so that there was really no way to call it himself or anybody to claim rock so that it just spread around the world people build it with their own ideas and you know we talked at the end of the floor about che became this deal basically i sort of the people could feel whatever ideas they wanted into it because there was no control and so it was a brand but a brand that evolved in its own light and rode the kind of waves of history that
5:45 am
just happened to coincide with that little these sort of momentous parts of his life and that is true. in the cold war michael casey thank you very much indeed for your time thank you our desire is demanding the release of a journalist mark miller hussein who's now been in prison in egypt for more than ten months is accused of broadcasting false news to spread chaos which he and al jazeera strongly deny authorities have refused to allow him to be transferred for specialist treatment on a broken arm and injuring his received during detention or same was arrested in december visiting his family hollywood film producer harvey weinstein has been fired from the studio he co-founded weinstein mind telling to leave of absence after the new york times published a report on thursday containing allegations of sexual harassment the weinstein company his board of directors says it has new information about his conduct but
5:46 am
