2:04 am
we agreed with merkel. we won't talk about it specifically. she, after some time for pause to discuss the proposal with the members of the european union. that's fine. what's the, just as the numbers at the border grow? so to does the desperation, they can't go back. pollen says it cannot santa. that means we're likely to see more people pushing forward and the polish forces using tougher tactics to keep them out. i said, beg, i'll jazeera, near the poland bella roost border. at least 3 people have been killed in a double suicide bombing in the uganda in capital kampala, one explosion took place near a check point at the central police station and the 2nd near the parliament building. 3 attackers also died in the blas catherine soil has more. oh, this is the moment the 1st bomb exploded in kampala, 10 past 3 in the morning, at a checkpoint at the central police station. exactly 3 minutes later. a 2nd went
2:05 am
off, yet the parliament building 3 suicide bombers were involved. they were killed along with 3 other people. dozens were injured. this footage was released by the police who said a 4th man was arrested and a suicide jack had found at his home. the unfortunate it's helping us at the time that we're going to go back to our normal livelihoods. so if this people can come at such a premises of police under an sit of a boom, then you know, things are not good. the aftermath shoes, how powerful the blasts were broken. windows bonding vehicles and terrified people police. the attacks were carried out by a gun walking alongside the allied democratic forces. the armed group has its roots in northern uganda, but is now based in the democratic republic of congo. it's fighters have killed thousands of people in the east in recent years. the hallmarks of the attack
2:06 am
clearly indicates that the if leading radicalized groups ah, will still have a desire to carry out little attacks on soft targets using to say that tacos, an improvised explosive devices are behind. these attacks is attack follows to others. last month, one killed a waitress in a restaurant and a 2nd on a bass. 2 days later injured several people. i still claimed those attacks. the adf has pledged it allegiance to the group. that involvement over your gun. and in the peacekeeping missions in the region, especially in somalia mix uganda targets or some of these groups. what's happening in uganda also comes at a time when the military is planning to deploy its soldiers to eastern d, r. c, to help kimberly's troops and un peacekeepers fight adf. there,
2:07 am
they'll help congress troops and un peacekeepers to fight 80th forces. katherine saw alta 0 or the allied democratic forces, or adf, is an affiliate of i saw in central africa. but the group has been around for much longer. uganda and forces drove the adf out of the country in the late 19 ninety's and into the democratic republic of congo. it's blaine for killing thousands of civilians in easton, congo, and wild goose says it's aligned with iso, the u. n. says there is little evidence of a direct relationship. a p. j. crowley is a former u. s. assistant secretary of state and he joins us live from alexandria, virginia via skype. thanks very much for being with us. so let me ask you, 1st of all about i did this group radio in uganda and their connections to the, the local i. so group there where,
2:08 am
where did the interests of atl and i so converge here? well, i think the, the current state of the extremist movement is that you, rather than having a central caliphate which has been defeated in iraq and syria. you now have an as lama state brand that is acquired by local groups, so that you know, is it adf, visit islamic state? actually it can be both them and this, and since you have a local group with a grievance towards uganda that is willing to fly the, the islamic state flag. so i think we have to look at the islamic state as much as a brand, as a movement and in your analysis, what is fueling their recruitment there? while the, the regarding government must 70 government has been around for a long time. it has
2:09 am
a great deal of support in the country. it's acquired some adversaries along the way. so i think this, this is a perfect example of a local group, you know, with a particular grievance. and it sees identification with the islamic state as being in, in it's in it's at least short to mid term interest. a you mentioned you can and present them with 70. that he was the 1st african leader to deploy peacekeepers in somalia . he, if he years ago to protect the government from, from, from chabad. and it's been suggested that this is one of the things that has helped to can, can you to drive recruitment of of a d, l in uganda. because he is seen as, as this leader who, who is who is fighting groups like as a bab and so on throughout africa a certain i think this is
2:10 am
a perfect example of extremist groups looking for the path of least resistance. and wherever they are, perhaps is, are gaps in effective governments. they're able to insinuate themselves into inter these, you know, local or regional conflicts. you know, so you, you have a country like uganda, which is fairly effectively governed. but then you have next door, a country like the congo, which has vast areas that are largely uncovered. and that's a, an area where, you know, these kinds of groups you know, can find a safe haven and then do the kinds of attacks that we've seen here the last couple of days. and any new will be what is the best way to, to, to tackle groups like this. i think patience is a, is
2:11 am
a particular a value. but it largely comes down to, you know, effective governments and local support. where there's less room for these groups to, to find a safe haven and get some sort of marginal support. the better, you know, and that's a challenge for a country like, like you gone to it is effectively governor. the one hand, on the other hand, was 70 has over time, you know, kind of suppressed you know, the electoral process. and so, you know, the answer is, is largely effective government. you know, free of corruption. this is able to gain local support and where this local support, there's less room for these extremist groups to operate. good to get your thoughts on this p. j. crowley joining a staff from alexandria virginia. thank you for being this. you're welcome. our

2:16 am
a drop of about 10 degrees, by the time we get into saturday, there will be sunshine, but it is going to get wetter from monday. now, if we have a looked at the west, it is looking a lot dryer across parts of british columbia, but it's going to remain rather wet and windy and wintery for washington for oregon and parts of california. but for the south of this, it is a lot dryer. a lot quieter, as it is from much mexico, as we head to central america. very dry was 21 degrees in mexico city. it's wetter across, so you can peninsula into believe. and it's a western parts of cuba stretching all the way through to the bahamas. ah, the 10s of thousands of children were born into old lives under the icicle regime in iraq and syria. now many are in camps either orphans all with the widowed mother
2:17 am
. rejected by their own communities, she could do think that people are going to welcome them after that. of course, mom and you documentary his, that chilling and traumatic stories for the children throw stones at me. iraq's last generation on al jazeera lou. the me again, you're watching as a reminder of our top stories to south polish police, fire water, cannon and tear gas migrants attempting to cross into the european union from bell . ruth, thousands, a stock there and threes in condition, polish, and better origin authorities blame each other for the crisis. at least 3 people

2:19 am
a how is all of this playing out in a chill right now? well right now as i speak, there is a senator, a conservative senator from the senior does coalition. conservative coalition and she is about, we believe, to vote against the impeachment, which will be the deciding vote. in other words, it is expected that at any moment now present, it will survive the bid to, to throw him out of office as it were, or at least to survive conviction. and this is something that we did expected because the conservatives in the senate do have enough votes to block the 2 thirds majority needed. but this conviction to go through, however, it has been a long and laborious and it, in some cases, torture is process that began early this morning and it should end up probably in the next hour or 2. but as i say, it's now pretty much a done deal. president vignette has been accused of seriously compromising the
2:20 am
dignity of the country and of being involved in what you could call a shady business deals by using his political power to push them through. the details are not as important as the fact that most people believe he is guilty of this. but the question is, is this is the right timing? remember, we are having presidential elections in 5 days next sunday to be exact. so watching a president out of office just before a presidential election, a national election for that matter, could be extremely sensitive and in fact the stabilizing. and that's why many people did not necessarily believe that this was the right time to do it. yeah. did a lot of people be curious about the, about the timing of this? but presumably this, this whole debate around his possible impeachment is, is, is father for the candidates with this election coming up as you say on sunday.
2:21 am
yes, it is father, especially for the opposition candidates. but you know, at this point it is not such a bonus as who might have expected. the reason is that president benita is so unpopular right now that he is also rejected by the vast majority of those who voted by him 4 years ago. in other words, most of the conservative and in fact, all to conservative presidential candidates who are also running had pretty much turned their back on the data right now. and in fact, they're running on a ticket that says that he did a did a terrible job. and that they would do things better. all right, lucia newman ally 1st there amos santiago. thanks for that. armenia says it's reached a cease fire with as a bizarre falling a day of violence which left at least 15 soldiers dead. i mean, he is defense ministry says the truce was broken by russia. it asked moscow to help defend its territorial sovereignty against a very forces which had accused armenia of provocations, armenia,

2:23 am
terms of the effect. this ruling will have well as a temporary stay in one perspective, we know that the company concerned no trim to a g in switzerland has got until a point in january to reply. but obviously there is the geopolitical significance in this, this pipeline. really polarizes opinion, not just in ukraine or germany, but around europe. there are some in germany who say, this is a good idea that this is helpful to the german economy. that gas coming through, we'll offer a new opportunities for gas consumers around western europe. there are also many people, politically, again, not just in germany, not just in ukraine, when the british prime minister, the american president present to the united states terabyte of all expressed real concerns about nordstrom too. there are some people who say that they believe that the russian government has been deliberately trying to force the german government
2:24 am
into green lighting nor the stream to quicker. well this ruling would appear not to be safe paying any heed to that. canada's largest port has been cut off from the rest of the country after flooding and land slides triggered by 2 days of torrential rain. all roads and rail links out of vancouver, a close, military helicopters, helping rescue hundreds of people trapped in mud slides across the province of british columbia. thousands of been forced to leave their homes with some regions seeing one months worth of rain in just 24 hours. jody events has more from vancouver. it has been unbelievable. truly something to behold. you almost all in this area. know somebody stuck somewhere because there are just simply so many mudslide, so many rivers breaching is their edges and flood waters coming across. what is the trans canada highway the highway that literally spends this entire country from coast to coast in some form is completely closed down and flooded by the the
