should be about raising prices farther down to the time we bring you the stories and developments that are rapidly changing the world we live in prime in that designate who has the task of fixing a war torn economy. counting the cost on al jazeera news high for me. okay, and your in the stream on today's program, we get to spend time with some of the audi 0 as best correspondence for look behind the scenes. the stories that they have been reporting on. we speak to john home and in mexico, he's been reporting on cartel violence in a recent film he explores what happens to civilians court in the crossfire in germany. once in a generation, floods have cause death and destruction steadfast and is standing by to tell us more about that story and i'll be looking out for your comments and questions and i
you chat. so share your thoughts right here. we start with katherine soy. he's been reporting in ethiopia. katherine recently gained exclusive access to the trigger. i am our region. i'm a special forces and the few p and federal police. at a checkpoint in my car, they're passing through require identification papers who won't rare, regional government guided trip. but he didn't filming the forces and a militia called funnel was difficult. the town claimed by both the em. hara anti grand ethnic communities was under t guys administration before the war started in november. it's one of the was the atrocities happened. hundreds of people were killed, the communities accused each other fighters of committing it. catherine story joins is now for ever. catherine. they say good to see you. when you were reporting from the take i am or are region on the board that just getting access is tricky. fast
challenging. tell us more about that. yes, it's very frustrating. and very tricky indeed. as he mentioned, we got to the success from the higher regional government and you may wonder why, because you're talking about western te gray. these areas we're talking about mocked in west and to gray. but in the 8 months of the war, i'm higher forces have occupied this territory. they say that this area belonged to them historically and only until the 19th and the t p a left at the great people liberation front, took power the, the next. this land to t gray, so the mars said is the land, but that the gradient who are now the t great 4th is we're now pushing south and west. they want to reclaim back those lines. they say that to them higher forces,
you took advantage of this conflict to 4th, we need takeover those stary tories. so it is a huge, a large dispute. and now because it's under that ministration of ira, we sought to authorization form. i'm her a leadership, but even with the authorization, we had to go with binders with guns and it was also very difficult to keep. and we both minded to fill a checkpoint, those pictures that you showed. there are actually pictures that we form secretly because it wouldn't let us bow menu of their forces. they have a militia co founder as well. they wouldn't let us pull back. and it was also very difficult to get a sense of, you know, whether these, the people we were talking to, the villages that when i grant that as well, it was very difficult for us to tell whether you know, the, what giving us information independently and without fear because what surrounded by august minded when we were there, a town called who mara?
it's one of the contested ones. and before that conflict tomorrow, in my car draw, which has showed their, with the, with the, with a mass grave to grands and i'm higher people leave side by side before this war. so a lot of the grand top lead the some that have been left the when we were there, the regional, the local administrators organize this potash by this, the grand in support of hire, as it was very hard for us to, you know, really get the maybe it was even say it's a catherine was just just the cameras. let me asking, let me ask you this because you did a very important interview with the maurice deputy president and trying to keep up with the politics and the history in. if your peer is difficult is challenging, but in less than a minute, you nailed it in this report. let me show everybody. if have
a look at the regional vice president shows as a $985.00 map. there are places much of the dispute territories in our region. the borderline have however, since been redrawn he thousands when the t cry people's liberation front or t p a left to power. you the next to the land to take right. we have never, ever accepted the amount of people in the regional government has an indoors that have never been consulted. so whenever you say historical dispute as if it takes us some years behind and one time it was there, another time it was here. that's what you call dispute. it has never been, so it couldn't be just a dispute. it was rather taken eula 30 by that period. if it was decided, katherine, i'm going to put some questions to you from adstream audience. this is a war of conflicting ideology, says this tweet unitary by pm api and semi autonomous ethnic federalism by the t p
l. s. the pm sees ethnic federalism as a root of all if you can. evil's while t p l f. these otherwise, this is this view as idea. this is their opinion. but how can the size of reconcile is the question, catherine? well, for me, i think at this point it's very difficult to see an immediate reconciliation. all sides have taken such hotline positions all accusing each other of ethnic cleansing and things like that. it seems very much like a supremacy battle with t gray to gray. you know, leadership accusing, i'm hara, administration of you know, just trying to expand their territory to expand beyond their territory. then we have this land dispute. these we are talking about the reach of re cultural land and in the whole conflict, you know, it's not just higher as and to gray. and we're also seeing now other regions that were not previously involved in that trigger. i conflict now getting
involved. we're seeing, you know, regions like, or a, me like, so my region or saying defending their own forces, sending their own militia to come and, you know, for join this war and fight alongside government troops and hire for this to fight that to grand defense. so when you seeing this kind of thing, it worries a lot of people because it's taking a very dangerous stand items. they danger us off nicked on if i may say, alright, pass and i'm going to ask you 2 questions very, very briefly, very quickly. one comes why our video comment on another one comes from youtube. let's start with a video comment. mobilizing mofas's, consisting of malicious and regional forces and into the conflicts represent the new home to restoration and into an intractability indicating the entire country. it further crystallizes the fact that no durable solution is likely to come from
either of the warring parties to continue mobilizing towards war and buy them to jo error. is there a job or solution from noah on youtube watching right now? do you think there will be a peaceful resolution between amara and take away what insight did you get from your reporting very quickly, catherine? well again, when i spoke to the deputy, president of, you know, i'm har, region again he, he position was very hard like he said, yes, we need the doable solution. we need a peaceful resolution, the planting season. now people need to be in there and they can be evicted, kicked out of their homes and things like that. but then on the other hand, he says that, well, we cannot watch as our people are being killed and people have been evicted. he called a point, you know, people in the villages in the front line area say, you know, the, as the people in the villages come out, defend, you saw that. i asked him,
are you telling them to arm themselves to 1000000000 the philippines and this village of any say yes, because what can they do if you go to the other side, the guy, the leadership very saying the same thing. you know, the leadership, people are being young, people are being recruited and trained and armed. so at this point it's very difficult to see i solution a peaceful solution, even if they're all say they want peace. this is not about the gram, this is not about i'm how are people. this is about the leadership. it's about the politics nike, catherine. so i showing your reporting with us and taking us beyond the scenes of the story as well. we move now to western europe, where flooding has left close to 200 dead and almost 1000 people unaccounted for. he stopped his that boston reporting earlier in the week from a start in germany. it was rush hour when the water quickly inundated highway number 265 near f. stop catching
unexpected drivers and passengers by surprise. soldiers and rescue workers try to reach dropped cars, finding out if everyone made it out in time. we hope that they made it out of their cars, but we are not sure. and we can guarantee that perhaps people in the cars, we could not check all cars. and if you see the quality of the water, also the check with divers is of no use looking at how challenging it is to fleet is one highway. it becomes clear that the recovery will take time. so her son is joining us from bon hello there that this story was literally close to home. we often say, oh, this is close to 100, but it really was. can you explain why it was very close to home because this is happening just an hour or 2 hours away from where i was born. this is like my, my home area. and i went on holidays when i was
a child to the locations here in the western part of germany. and that was also happening in the south of natalie, where my parents are living. and that's actually why i jumped in the car so quickly when i heard about the slots, because i got messages from my parents that their village was under water. and that really struck me because i thought, why is this happening now? and i knew of course about the torrential rains, but i also never expected these kinds of floods. and my 1st idea was climate change . climate change is now getting a physical phase here in europe. so if i'm going to show a couple of pictures, because if you look in the background, we look behind that on her wellington's you see so much there is chaos in the background. i'm just going to show a couple more pictures here. this is you're getting ready to stand up a piece the camera. but look this, what is this upside down? this vehicle is upside down. you can see the destruction. and again here, a vehicle being flipped. when you 1st got onto the scene, what was your reaction?
because you have cover floods in other parts of the well, particularly in asia. so you're not a newcomer to what flood destruction can do node. the 1st thing i thought it looks like the phenomena, the aftermath of the 2 now me in indonesia and 2004, which i covered extensively. and i never really expected to find these kinds of images, of course, so close to home in europe. and people there also are completely taken by surprise . they knew only disaster from television, from asia, from africa, but now in this kind of destruction, they've never seen before. as you say, cars were all over the place. they were swimming from other village villages. there were trees, like everywhere there were just taken out like they were. they were weighing nothing and the reference overflowed it. the bridge is broken, lots of houses damage. and one story that really, really struck me very deeply was this story where we 1st went and it was
a house to disabled people and we were 12, people died there. i mean, we really wanted to find this place and it was nearly impossible. we couldn't find it because it was not everywhere. roads were blocked. and then finally, when we were shooting the whole day at the end of the day we found is building. and we found the story there of the neighbors who saw what happened, that the water came up into the 1st floor and there was no evacuation because the, the, the authorities were completely overwhelmed. so they had been evacuated, some part of the town, but that particular part wasn't evacuated. so people were still stuck, deer, and they were in the for it for us on the 1st floor on the ground floor. and they couldn't escape, they were just simply stuck and they de drowned sadly. so i'm going to show an image from your instagram, have a look here on my laptop stuff. so obviously seen this, but there's something here that i wanted to show you. divers court by surprise,
the drivers on a highway court by surprise. it's a supplies element i want to build on. this is just the cost us to have, have a listen to his story, also close to home for him and his parents. and then just coming off the back of a, if you would, his jeff, as i said, i'm really used to looking at data regarding floods impacting rivers in society. but just last week, i found myself on the other side of the data when my parents called me in distress, telling me that their home was being flooded. and just seeing how emotionally draining physically and financially traumatizing into their own entity that was such a stark reminder of how devastating floods can be on people and communities. of course, if we look at the big picture in europe, there were relatively lucky and belgium and in germany, especially under the people have died and communities have been erased from the math due to a lack of adequate and time. the warning as a researcher, i believe that as a society we have failed people and
a good forecast. it's useless decision makers do nothing actual upon receiving warnings. yes, exactly. it's not only the warning system that failed. i spoke about the evacuations earlier, but a lot of people will alter wondering what have we been doing against climate change against global warming? of course, in the western part of germany, when i was driving around there and i was driving between the countries, i went back and forth to the netherlands as well. and you see the and industrial areas. you're passing the coal power plants that are still operating there. so lots of people have also been asking questions. you know, what is the impact of all this industry here in this part of the world on this changing climate? and i think this is really where this discussion will, will go to i think this will really have a long term impact on the discussion on climate change in the netherlands in germany, in belgium, in the western part of europe. that i am just going to wrap our segment together. i
know that volunteers are making a difference on the ground. what is the latest that you're seeing that you've been reporting for us on out 0? well, it was overwhelming. today i spent a whole day in a place by means the eiffel, which was one of the worst hit and i'm going to merkel was actually there. and people there was so busy working just hundreds of volunteers. they were lining up. they made this human change. they had buckets who were passing it on one by one with their bare hands. and while i'm going to merkel was in the back talking to officials, they kept working and they were actually angry and irritated. they started talking to me like why is she still be or we need to work and she's actually blocking everything that way. i can go every side i can we have work to do that. i know that was exactly what the step. thank you so much for showing your reporting with us. we will continue to watch it on out 0. finally,
we had to the mexican state of metro account. he was eclipse from the al jazeera film. mexico's kills me, i guess i'm, i'm, i'm, i'm in the reality is that the food less is, is that cool here. a brutal, roofless, they cure police disappeared civilians across the country. and now they're invading mix. what can we hear to us? what that means for an already traumatized population and who is going to stop in? we're heading into a woods to john home and joins us now from mexico city. john, i have to ask you, how did you get an interview with her lisco new generation called tell lead a how. how is that even possible?
just just watch me there. it's a little bit of an out of body experience. now. you see on the screen is one thing and it was quite that we were actually i think we would try me at the time to get to it sounds good ideally yet. and that town is, is more stream than anything else i've seen in mexico. and i've been here like 3 years now. it's basically on the sea between 2 different criminal groups. we've got that group the least new generation called to the one side. and then it's being blocked up on the other side by another group, calculus needles. so to get, we have to drive down the road over the mountains. and that was a road the this talk to the new generation cocktail controlled. and so we were going along the path of this village where they had to the baseball peroration. we'd already awesome submissions go down that road. and they, they said yes, we sort of knew we rotate to do that message. go down to the guys with
a check for it and then got a really good producer until they got a really good time or person. was like, i'm just one part of this team. and more than anything they've managed to dissuade the guy. i've been checked, but we'd love to do an interview with you. we want to hear what you've got. and she said, okay, you need to go to the crime, the district that we've got in the middle of the woods my way. and i i think the other 2 were sorts of like, yes, okay. the, this is, this is the one in the, in your film. there were moments where as a view, i was afraid because you looked afraid. one of them was when you were in an abandoned village, just going to play that clip for our stream. what it does have a look that you can feel the initial cost at least
yeah. that was, that was just frightening, actually at the time it looks on the video, i saw the video from youtube obviously, and i saw one person commenting saying, oh, typical journalist type. but i just want to assure that person that says what they did on the screen. we'll run back to the car and start with the camera person was the only person that didn't want to leave the house even though we heard gunshots around. and apparently people told us all about what we call, basically just far in the as to when to let you know that, that, you know, going to go nosing around. one of the, i think that was one of they were bad. and so basically, so i went off to that in the most of the she just, we could see someone's house and the whole village was like, you know, just over the left side there was some people just left everything
around and the whole road was like, you know, i mean, you just saw these places where people just had to abandon their lives. so space, we took it about my fear of the moment, not fear of moment. good. just imagine where to live, to live through and to have to go, you know, it wasn't just a story the call tells you were telling you, telling the story of the people who abandoned their villages you had to move on. and you took us to the border, you connected the dots between the cartels, the funny thing for territory, and then ordinary people were trying to live in that situation. as one family, they have my laptop, just taken a still from your film. and i'm wondering what happened to this family. they fled because that young teen daughter just here. the cartel kidnapped her for a couple of days and they were afraid. what happened to this family?
get exactly as you said it and we met them in on the, on the mexican border and they were really bright. they were the only people that would speak to us actually on camera about what happened. and then just this week, actually, i mean we heard back from the tisha who's the mother to the matrix, to the one that holds it together. and they actually managed to get over to the united states, asking for silent, and they're currently in the us. so there was such a relief to hear that because within we so many families that had to flee most of them, it was because and they have to say produce and produce a dissenting capital. really stood out for it and they just got so many testimonies . if they wouldn't speak on camera, not people. so the photos of that song that relatives in the mood, people that just said we just happily everything just the same time that you know, they went in the bit of noise in the car. they left everything behind. they were
living, i think it was 6 of them in to tense included. that would go in to 10 on the board . they just and i asked them how he's feeling right now and they would say we're happy life with together. i just, i think it's difficult to imagine that kind of danger and that kind of fear. and they said they could never go back. so i suppose happy story for them. but i reckon there was a lot of people on the board to waive the migration for me because i think the a lot of people that wouldn't have had the same success goes john, we're going to leave it off. but i am going to point everybody who's watching the string today, to have a look here on my laptop. cuz i want you to watch this film, the full report, living in mexico's kill zone in 25 minutes, john and his team take us inside to mexico inside metro can. and really some of the difficulties that people having there. thank you john. thank you. step. thank you,
catherine. thank you for watching. if there are any stories you'd like us to do on the stream, you can tweet us at a stream. i'll see you next time. take everybody. ah, this tom mom trying to flag for her nation. we have been putting game playing crickets on what be country between my dream play in the woods while providing for family ways. cleaning game. that's my precious game in the game. my them bob way on al jazeera, across the world, young activists and organizers around the motivated and politically engaged, the challenges they face couldn't be more daunting here. and we were the one who
me i think stream flooding in central china forces around 200000 people to flee. so the lying areas ah, i'm have them. i have been and this is al jazeera life and go home, also coming up a desperate situation unfolding in me and mar, a health care system on edge. she has a new wave of cologne. virus spreads on checks across the country,
