12:02 am
one of the right struck me a local hospital. well, if you open government forces in those loyal to the t p, i laugh, have been fighting for almost a year. the raids of picked up over the past week. that's foreseen. i to nations to cease humanitarian flies to the regional capital mckelly. despite warnings of a worsening humanitarian and hunger crisis playing out of morning that speak to political analyst quite tim gabrielle. he joins us live now from all low. it's been a year since this conflict began. it's already caused massive destruction displacement thousands of lives have been lost. is the war now expanding in terms of the effects on the civilian population and losses on the battlefield? yes, indeed, it has been expanding for several months now. after the, if you have been government troops were pushed out of the capital to grow and make
12:03 am
a new they've been expanding towards the capital. i do some of our and they've been taking over large parts of the region and are also active in the far region. their main target is to lift the siege that has been put on to ride for the past 12 months. were now nearing the one year mark of the start of the war and, and it's actually a potentially coming to an end sometime soon. more do you. what do you mean by that tension coming to an end of the to grand defense forces are now surrounding eh, say, and the, if you're in military is crumbling. and so with this pace, if this trajectory continues, it's not going to be a long time before they actually reach out to some of them. and this is the context
12:04 am
in which the airstrikes are actually taking place. the targets aren't military at all. they've been hitting hotels, hospitals, and industrial areas, and it's a way of diverting attention away from these for the government, catastrophic military losses. but as you point out, the government has the capacity to conduct as strikes and turn to cause damage at to on civilian targets. as well as t p f fighters. so in that sense, is it really, is it realistic to say that the t p l f. despite that, they've managed to show themselves to be very aggressive. fighting force in recent months will be able to necessarily branch out of tag or i am har, and a far they're already. i mean, no, they traveled several 100 kilometers and they are not are too
12:05 am
far from the capital at this stage. so the next battle font is going to be the big one. the last one perhaps is going to be dessie. after that, the capital is not far away, of course is does that mean that it's, it's, it's something we can take for granted that they will reach out to us about the trajectory points, 2 points in that direction, essentially. and the government for the past 6 months haven't been able to really score any major military victories. they have the last one. sorry. oh, sorry. now i was just gonna ask because they, they have deployed at troops to darcy, haven't they? in it, in order to counter the, the t p l f. incursion. if the t p left managed to, to continue to make progress as you say, what then would be the, the ultimate objective. is it to force the government to accept that their terms for an agreement stop fighting?
12:06 am
the major issue is to list the humanitarian blockade. and that's, i think one of the reasons why they've been successful is because the whole of to guy has an option. but to fight, so if you're a young man or young woman integrate your option is either to just sit and starve to death or to fight. and for that reason they've actually managed to mobilize a very big army a. so the main agenda, the 1st criteria is to in that humanitarian locate after that. so we have to consider that the war is not only integrate, there's an insurgency in romeo in been jungle and other parts of the country. so this country needs a political dialogue. there needs to be some sort of political process. there is so much that one can do with 2 military force that applies both to those opposing the government and the government as well. so i think the, the 2nd major purpose of the armed resistance now is
12:07 am
a political process which the government has been denied or resisting so far. you make an important point that the problems in, in ethiopia actually go beyond take brian, there are some very serious and difficult conflicts happening elsewhere. could this, if there isn't some end the fighting soon? could this result in some sort of unraveling? how much of a threat is this to the stability in the unity of ethiopia? when we think about unraveling, we need to divide it into 2 things. there is a social donation, which i think has already happened. the social bonds are ruined. in many ways, amongst many people on a permanent basis, and there is the in, you know, institutional side of things. and that is also unravel extensively. you know, the military is more or less in shambles. it's, it's, it's destroyed. one can say that the ability of the state to maintain law and order is severely compromised around the country. its ability to provide services is also
12:08 am
significantly hampered. so i think the social dimension has already is gone in many ways. the institutional one is also unraveling. you know, quite quickly, so you know where we are already is quite catastrophic. you know, millions of people are starving in a man made famine. hundreds and thousands of people are armed and fighting a war. and most likely, the casualties are in the hundreds of thousands. when we get to find that data to count the casualties. so we are already, i think, deep into in the process of unraveling. i would say thank you very much. joining us from azako, tim gabrielle. thank you for having we go to molly. now why a gunman have killed at least 10 people in an attack on the base of
12:09 am
a power military group known as the gun, the east. so this happened in the northern region of gao. group was formed in 2009 and is backed by the army. it's not clear the soldiers as well as local militia groups that have joined forces account that is home to over a 1000 soldiers that took place just 10 minutes drive away from the un base, as well as the french back kind of base. at least 10 people were killed, many more were wounded. no one has claimed responsibility for this attack. no human rights watch accuse the malia and military as well as government backed militias of extra judicial killing. and this has increased since there has been an effort by the 1000000 government to support government backed militia. the united nations security council are asking the government of by michael, led by former military june to see me going to organize free and fair elections. as

12:14 am
it gets ups the ante escalades, hoping that his counterparts would, you know, sort of take a step back or tone down or offer engagement. it's being l is the biggest blow to drug trafficking this century. the leaders of columbia's biggest drug cartel has been arrested in an operation involving hundreds of police officers. diary antonio, it was sugar, who also goes by the name on tanya, was captured in a remote corner of the jungle close to the border with panama. brianca go to has mal dido, antonio osha is widely known as or tonio and had been on the ron for more than a decade. columbia most wanted and most fear drug trafficker, now finally in handcuffs, off to being hunted down by soldiers for the wolves launches cocaine. producing nation, or tonia rest is the biggest victory in its so called war and drugs in nearly 30
12:15 am
years as verse ill gold. this is the hardest blow that has been dealt to drug trafficking in this century in our country. and this blows only comparable to the follow pablo escobar in the ninety's. he was captured at his hideout in jungle near the border with panama. more than 500 soldiers were deployed, one officer was killed almost lead guitar. we began an important satellite surveillance mission against him, with agencies from the u. s. in u. k. where with each movement with trace analysts with communications, where the 50 experts in signal intelligence permanently covering the area with an exact coverage that allowed us to indicate what his movements were you to get him from his hiding place. born into royal family or tonia was a hard fighter who switch sides from far led gorilla to far i paramilitary groups. in 2012, he took over as the leader of the golf clerk from his brother, who was killed by police. he's wanted by the u. s. reporting tons of cocaine for

years from south america. the government says his group has been behind some of the worst violence. columbia has seen since the signing of a p steel with fox rebels in 2016. there is the possibility that these bring down levels of violence, especially on the communities that he bet had been affected by these large organization. but, but indeed, i mean, there is no an effective a solution to a drug trafficking international drug trafficking problem. jose, by beheading these type of organizations, that once all there been narcotics problems in the world. no, nor in columbia. many field toenails arrest mealy to a power struggle, and a tough war that could worse and the violence. brianca got their alta 0 for necessary. let's go to alexander m p at he joined us from the colombian capital bug, a tar and government there. as compared this to the capture of pablo escobar,
12:17 am
3 decades earlier. what has been the reaction among people there? yes look, everybody obviously here thinks that this is a very significant but if you start talking to people they will tell you that it's not comparable in carrier least the same weight as that at the death of pablo escobar back in 1993 in that for a number of reasons because people believed that at the time of escobar is highest power, things were much more dangerous. those were more scary. they were scary or times for a lot of people, especially in big cities or in main cities across to a much of the country. also, escobar was a very public figure. he became a sort of robin hood for many poor columbia. and while they're on the other hand, oh yeah, it's obviously very powerful, endangered,
12:18 am
especially in the north west of the country buddy has spent most of his time in big john go. also people don't think that this will have the same impact culturally here in the country. and because of just how big of a public figure escobar was, and also because it made me believe this will not change as much the business they listed fit, trade of narcotics, the in columbia. been now that also near live gone. others will appear new leaders that will replace him. thank you very much. from boca allison graham, he at 14 protest is backing the military of briefly blocked major roads and a bridge and don's capitol as tensions grow between the generals and pro democracy movement tear gas was fine to clear protest as and cartoon relations of salad between the military and civilian sharing power and fragile transitional government . it's supposed to lead sit down to elections after a long time,
