and the bodies of 11 ukrainian citizens who died when a passenger plane was accidentally shot down by iran are returned to cuba. so let's begin in berlin where libya's warring sides and world leaders have agreed on a final communique at a un backed peace conference it was announced by the german chancellor angela merkel she hopes that 12 world leaders including the presidents of turkey russia and the u.k. they agree to extend the temporary truce in libya in the hope that it will develop into a full ceasefire angela merkel emphasized the need for a political solution to end years of conflict. we all believe that a political solution will be necessary i think it has become very obvious over the
10:02 pm
past few weeks and months that it cannot possibly be a military solution to this conflict this will only increase the suffering of the libyan people. well jim is in berlin and joins us now live. chancellor they really emphasizing of course political solution not a military one what further detail was agreed. as you mentioned there or it was a quite extensive statement from the chancellor she spoke about several different aspects of this agreement for the outcome of this conference she said that there were meant to be binding resolutions that came out of this. specifically talking about how this was a proxy calm for conflict more than it was just simply an internal one and those resolutions that they had agreed upon included economic ones whereby they would be discussions on how to essentially revive libya's economy and the way forward in
10:03 pm
sharing the wealth of the oil is she said that the united nations secretary general . has also spoken he spoke about also the formation of this military committee that they had been waiting for several months to form. a century was falling upon the side of renegade general for you to have to nominate members and they would be 5 members from each side that would meet in order to discuss things about disarmament forming a national army and essentially civilian police forces and that this would hopefully according to. in the next few days he said in geneva there was talk about this libya dialogue process that would be headed by the united nations itself and that this would also mean within the next couple of weeks but what was interesting also was the fact that for example. the u.n. envoy on libya. had said that this process the berlin conference was
10:04 pm
a combination of meetings that had triggered or started off some 9 months ago why is this interesting because throughout that 9 month old. i've seen on the ground in libya is actually an escalation of fighting primarily triggered by the side of it and that's where maybe the skepticism is coming from is that there are people who would say that whilst these agreements conferences discussions are taking place because corrupt one in iraq will be it's moscow be it's here in berlin that's all well and good but there's been very little implementation facts on the ground what's happening is one side has been gaining more and more ground gaining more and more territory in more and more state institutions on the routes and that's what's making any agreements very unlikely to be achieved least not in the framework of the timeframe that is expected. and of course child what was interesting is that when the angle of merkel was asked where the 2 libyan leaders had been so sad and half that they were in berlin but they hadn't actually met in the same room because
10:05 pm
differences between them were still so big so in light of that regardless of what be outlined may be at this for a lean mean how easy will it be to implement these promises. that it's a very good point to make the fact that the true sides failed to meet the fact that this was a conference by none libyan countries talking about the territorial integrity and unity of libya and the self-determination of the libyan people the fact that the national language of the libyans are because and even presence on the stage while they were making an announcement about the future of libya how difficult is it going to be to implement well if they were incapable or unable to bring them together that shows just how difficult it is in fact through her credit on going to market herself when she was altering that question did respond by saying well the gap between the 2 sides at present was so big that they were unable to bring them together but the implementation isn't just about ensuring both sides inside libya implement things but probably more so about ensuring all the different sides
10:06 pm
involved do not empower either side to continue in this armed conflict but mainly actually the side of the that is not recognized by the international community the side that isn't the government which is probably for half that and we heard that when we were talking about the arms embargo and one of the reporters asked angela merkel what exact mechanisms have been agreed to implement and she failed to answer said well we're hoping out of goodwill that an arms embargo that was actually announced by the united nations security council the highest body within the united nations announced 9 years ago in 2011 that maybe this time it will be respected and maybe that's kind of goodwill didn't seem enough for the united nations secretary general himself we decided to take the mike and then really kind of express once again his frustration and disappointment that members of the united nations security council themselves including france are accused of flouting that arms embargo and unless until and unless international powers actually respect its and
10:07 pm
implement it themselves then it really does leave any agreement in a precarious situation so let's say out with the latest there from berlin where that meeting is concluded and we have the final communique for the moment you now thank you. the u.n. says a missile attack on a government military camp in yemen that killed at least $111.00 people could derail the fragile deescalation process there the government is blaming who are the rebels for the attack but so far no one has claimed responsibility they call a gauge has more and a warning some viewers may find the images in this report report the story. after nearly 5 years of violence the war in yemen is showing no signs of ending this hospital is filled with government soldiers and civilians injured in saturday's

10:13 pm
public funds they want a new leadership this has been going on for 3 months now but as of late in the past few days the really we're seeing a turning point it has become more violent the more you talk to people. you get the sense that people feel peaceful rallies have really achieved nothing that they. escalate you have to move back because the protesters are using fire with fire. and this is. this is it's playing out and live on television the president of the country is holding a meeting midday tomorrow grouping the caretaker interior minister the caretaker defense minister as well as the head of security agencies they would be there they plan to discuss the security situation in the country. they keep releasing missions that they will protect the right to peacefully protest but will not allow

new year holiday. the symptoms of the patients are generally mild among the 763 we are observing 681 have been released with the prevention and control measures we are implementing the epidemic situation can be prevented and controlled . warning. but some fishermen. have ignored gone home or to work. trying to keep people away from. the philippines because god is making this early morning patrol every day at the moment there's still a restriction on anyone going to the island it's simply too dangerous to go there and this is part of that team. just as we were approaching the island we saw boats also coming to the island and also we see people on the shoreline here people still
10:25 pm
have fish farms here so they come out very early morning to tend to their fish despite warnings that they should be staying away. so they've been telling the fishing boats they can't stay here they have to leave and some of them have left but we still have these guys on the shoreline here who are determined to stay and there's not much the coast guard it seems can do about that. them to leave the island and those we see trying to come across we stop because it's still a level 4 and we've got to think about safety and as we've been driving around here we see just over the hillside. steam and dust coming from the volcano having said that it does seem as though the emissions have dropped in the past few days or so it seems a lot more peaceful so it's hard trying to tell people that they can come out here people say look we have livelihoods we're going to make a living we have to come out tend to our fish come out and fish what else are we going to do. there are villages dotted all around the coastline of this volcanic
10:26 pm
island as we've been going along we've been seeing boats at all of them and people happily at work as though life is getting back to normal and seemingly impervious to the warnings from the coast guard. it seems risky enough just visiting here it seems inconceivable that anyone would want to spend any time here but people left they left behind livestock also left behind domestic animals who just noticed there was a dog on the shoreline the coast guard here just made an attempt to rescue it put it in the boat but it doesn't seem to want to leave. the coast guard will be out again tomorrow morning to do the same warning people to stay away and that this is still a very dangerous volcano but what also annoys them they tell us is that while other people are putting their lives at risk by coming out here so well the coast guard by coming out and trying to tell them to stay away thousands of people in the canadian province of new found land are without power after

10:28 pm
age but in australia one initiative has worked and it's been borrowed by other countries and we're told this is more on a small change that has made a big difference. it's a brand new library with a new way of lending borrowing a book has been the same for decades people read them for a set amount of time then return them if they don't books become overdue and readers are fine when they bring them back. but that's changing many australian libraries have since 27 so you tested a you know following policy managers say you to save stuff time and the costs of administration which were 10 times higher than the revenue raised from fines potential fines also put off poor people from using libraries and stop them borrowing books once they owed fines they couldn't pay in the 1st trial that we had the amount of items they got returned to the library list 3 times as many that we
10:29 pm
actually have any it's sorry that was close to 70000 items that came back so we regained a whole lot of customers that hadn't been using our services because they were either afraid of the fines that with a or get embarrassed to come back the trial has become a permanent change we just want us to be a welcoming friendly place and having fines and chasing people down for money is really not the kind of relationship that we want to have without community in the digital age libraries like this one mostly lend traditional books they need to change to survive but opinion is divided it's great because i guess then don't have to try and remember the dates and things like that and then if you just come in whenever it suits us other people is waiting for the opportunity to read to the same bolt if they are not penalized then the other person will be lost opportunity but the no foreign policy is spreading this initiative is one that's proving
