Mary Harper is the BBC World Service is Africa editor and she joins us, Mary What's the significance? Do you think of capturing an airport in T Cry? First of all, we have to be very careful with all these claims and counter claims about Eritrea invading or not invading airports being seized or not being seized because there's Very alternative realities of being presented by the adversaries in this conflict. But if indeed Thie Ethiopian federal troops have seized this airport in this key town, which is sort of in between the borders of its in Ethiopia, but near Sudan, Eritrea that would obviously be Ofthe significance on DH. It has been reported that hundreds indeed, up to about 3000 Ethiopians are fleeing across the border into Sudan. From the violence in and around tomorrow and elsewhere in in Western T cry, So the situation really is extremely grave on that. I was speaking to a BBC reporter in the regional capital medically. Off to cry, Who said that eyewitness did eye witnesses in home. Ara where this airport reportedly was seized, had spoken ofthe Eritrean forces being there, but it is very difficult to be absolutely sure that that is what's going on. Do you think that it's something that Eritrea would be seeking? You mean what's the background to this? It's It's very complicated. Eritrea has first of all vehemently denied that it has troops in Tigre. But as things stand it is Has been involved in a great facility with two grand regional authorities, who actually used to be the main force in that's the most significant element in the coalition government that was in charge of Ethiopia. Basically since the early 19 nineties until Abiomed came to power on DH. There was listeners might remember this awful border war between Ethiopia and Eritrea over a disputed patch of land, which still hasn't been fully resolved despite the announcement of the Nobel Prize for Abby for purportedly ending that conflict. Basically, Eritrea has a lot of scores to settle with the two grands and this might be the opportunity to do so. Mary Harper, the BBC World Service is Africa editor. Many thanks. You're listening to news hour from the BBC. I'm Paul Henley, one of the most celebrated Palestinians of recent times. Syb. Erekat has died. He was an academic and negotiator leading figure for decades in peace talks with Israel. Mr Erakat had had serious health problems for several years, and recently he contracted Corona virus. His reputation among his fellow Palestinians suffered a big blow in 2011. When confidential memos were leaked, suggesting that his team had privately offered concessions to the Israelis that contradicted that public position. Our Middle East editor Sebastian Usher, Looks back now on his life. With his excellent English and urbane on business, Like Tamina Sigh of Erica was one of the best known spokesman for the Palestinian cause. Born in Jericho in the West Bank to a prominent family, he decided early on that the only solution to the Israeli Palestinian conflict was through negotiation. He began advocating this in the early 19 eighties in Palestinian newspapers while continuing his work as a lecturer in political science. He was talent spotted and brought in as part of a younger Palestinian leadership in the West Bank. In the 19 nineties, He began to take a key role in peace negotiations with Israel, both at the historic Madrid conference on the later Washington talks, But he resigned after the secret Oslo accords were made public in 1993. He did, however, become the only prominent leader from the West Bank to join Yasir Arafat's Palestinian Authority When it was set up in Ramallah. He remained loyal to Arafat through the years, serving as a minister and an MP. And though he never built up his own political power base, despite his high visibility on the international scene. He participated in the camp David and Taba peace talks in 2000 and 2000 won, but he later expressed his own deep personal disappointment on sense of failure. Over the lack of a deal to give the Palestinians a fully independent state. The publication in 2011 of confidential memos known as the Palestine Papers, damaged his reputation amongst Palestinians further. They seemed to show that he and his negotiating team had been ready to do backdoor deals with Israel that would have given away more than the Palestinians had ever publicly agreed to. Mr Erekat condemned the league as a slander campaign. He also said that if nothing else, it showed that Israel did have a genuine pardon of the piece in the Palestinians, a description that even his critics would have to concede. As a fitting epitaph, the cyber Erekat himself Sebastian ASHA reporting. Mr Erekat was a vocal critic of the Trump administration's approach to Israeli Palestinian relations. He defended the idea of a two state solution. When he spoke to news hours Razia Iqbal last year. I don't think that the notion that was the solution will ever disappear because it's the only solution if not this year and 50 years. The difference will be how many Israelis and Palestinians will be killed because of thes shortsighted political blind politicians who believe that they're here to carry out the settlement program. But you say that the two state solution will never disappear. But there is also the idea ofthe one state and equal rights for citizens isn't this this will never be accepted. Israelis.

Sudan Signs Peace Deal With Rebel Alliance

"Has been signed aimed at ending ending 17 years off conflict, the signing of the peace deal in Juba between the government and the sovereign alliance made up of four rebel groups. Will be a huge boost for peace in the conflict hit regions ofthe dark, full South Kordofan and others and is expected to pave the way for ending many years off fighting between the central government and rebels. Speak to the BBC's African regional editor, Mary Harper. Mary just set set out the context for us, which has resulted in this deal. We're talking about conflict over a long period of time. Yes. The conflict in the western region of Sudan and Darfur began 17 years ago in 2003, when basically ethnic African groups rose up against what they saw as the more Arabic style domination and the government of the then president. The ousted President Omar al Bashir, unleashed this. Ferocious campaign against them, And in fact, Mr Al Bashir, under a number of others were indicted for war crimes and crimes against humanity. As a result off that conflict, which even though it's reduced in scale still continues to a degree. You still hear about quite frequent clashes and up to 300 fact 300,000 people were killed in that conflict and More than two million displaced and then you also have slightly less lower intensity conflicts. Let's let's describes them as in parts of southern Sudan, so this peace deal is meant to encompass. All of those conflicts under one umbrella, and there's there, although two groups that are not included in the deal. How significant is that? It is significant. I mean, these groups One of the problems with the conflicts in Sudan is you get so many groups and splinter groups up even if you might sign a deal with some of them. There's always going to be others that breakaway and refused to participate. So unless these two groups sign is not really going to be a fully comprehensive peace agreement And also there's always the risk as this happened in the past that this peace deal was stopped afraid to fall apart on DH collapse because that has bean the repeated pattern off peace deals, especially to do with duffle on in that

"But that's not exactly going to break. The lira's full that was Mark Lowen into stumble officials in Ethiopia, say at least forty people have been killed in the east of the country, a spokesman for the Oromia region where it happened, said all of the dead were ethnic aromas, thousands of been killed and more than a million displaced in recent clashes between the aromas and the Somalis in eastern Ethiopia, Africa editor, Mary Harper told us more about the victims. This is the biggest ethnic group in Ethiopia and the remove region has a huge border with the Somali region in eastern Ethiopia and most of the dead set to be civilians, but also some regional security forces. This is former finance has been going on for decades and decades. If European has got the system, it's a federal system and different ethnic groups, sort of put in different regions. And especially when you have pastoralist communities along the border regions, you do have clashes. Historically, the Somalis in the rumors have been people who have clashed over land and water. So if the violence as you say has been going on for decades, tell us more about the group that is said to be behind these killings. The group that's being accused of killing these Ramos is this much feared paramilitary force, could the Lou which is Cemalli regional police force. Essentially it was set up as a counter terrorism force to deal with a Somali rebel groups that has recently declared a unilateral ceasefire, but they are much feared not only by neighboring rumors, but within the Somali region it self. But at the same time, they have things like the Somali Islamist group Al Shabaab to deal with the have the own rebels. But then when they cross over into other regions as they have done allegedly and kill a members of different ethnic groups, obviously, this is massive tension in the region and is the violence in the region escalating. It has been going on for several months now and it's been really bad about a million people have been displaced about thousands of more than a thousand killed. And what's sort of in a way surprising about continuing is that if Europe you now has this new prime minister who's been introducing huge reforms all over the country, and indeed, one things that he's being seen as sort of orchestrating is the removal from power of the president, the regional president of the Somali region a few days ago. So some people are saying why these killings continuing when there's a different president in charge. Now, if that particular region who's more sympathetic to the central authorities, they're asking why? As the regional, the Somali paramilitaries still going off to the aromas even though you don't have this very ruthless regional Somali leader that was Mary Harper to Afganistan. Now on the big question is who. Controls the city of Ghazni an important center on the main highway. Linking the capital Kabul with the south of the country. NATO US forces on the Afghan government say an attack by the Taliban that began last Friday has failed, but BBC's sources on the ground, say fighting is continuing in some parts of the city. It's reported that one hundred forty Taliban have been killed. Other reports, say, nearly one hundred Afghan soldiers and police died. Why? Mubarak is the Afghan Interior Minister. This is what he told us. The government is fully in control of Ghazni. Reinforcements have arrived top security. There's they're only in the city. The Taliban have started fleeing from the outer skirts of the of of Ghazni. So the situation is fully under our control are clearing operations have have already started since ten o'clock in the morning, but the cities and the outskirts of the city of fully under the. All of the government information from Gaza, and he's been hard to come by because telephone lines down. But Julian Marshall has been speaking to the UN acting humanitarian coordinator in Afghanistan. Dr Rick paper corn. That it's been conformed reports from unitarian sources. It seems as funny thing, tonight's has been society when we understand that the key government offices and a little bit critical infrastructure that seemed to have been damaged and communication that works are down electrically supply, etc. Which also results in water shortages to to the Vela dysfunctional. One of the other issue is that it was a little ideas plays.

But the other two candidates have submitted their candidates, they electoral commission, but we will only know who qualifies to run for president in September. I asked her Africa editor, Mary Harper about DRC's troubled history. Even if you go back to the colonial times when the Democratic Republic of Congo which was then called Zaire was ruled by the Belgians. It was a place of unbelievable cruelty to the local population. And then once independence came in the sixties, there was a brief moment of hope when maybe this could have become sort of functioning democracy. But after a short time, this African tyrant, one of the biggest of all President Mobutu Sese Seko came to power and he basically governed that country as if it was his personal backyard, him and his family and his cronies. Stole the resources of Congo and left the majority of the population in complete misery. Then he was overthrown. And once again, there was some kind of hope that something in this country that is blessed with the most tremendous amount of natural resources that something different would happen. But then if Kabila's father Lanka Bela who took power, he wants again, basically governed the country in an irresponsible way. Infrastructure was left to decay. Lots of conflicts broke out in the first African kind of world wars happened in congress, different huge, isn't it? It's an enormous country. I mean, if you look at the map of Africa, the entire center of Africa is made up of the Democratic Republic of Congo and it has all these neighbors. If you think about the east as all these stories about millions and millions of people being killed there over the years because countries like Rwanda Uganda have been meddling in that part of the territory, it very rich. In a mineral coltan which basically feeds all our mobile phones keeps them going nuts of warlords enrich themselves by controlling the mind. If you look at the south, that's where they have corpora kobylt coupled is now hugely important for electric cars. So sort of Congo has go all these resources that should make a very very rich country. But unfortunately, due to the leadership that it has had in including under both of the Kabila's, it has never been able to stand on its feet and really prove to the world that is this country that is so full of extraordinary resources. And yet most of the rest of the world seems to leave it to its own devices. Some foreign countries are involved in exploiting the minerals there, but I think because it is so chaotic because there's all these conflicts that you have conflict in the east, and then another region called the Kasai region has a lot of conflict as well. So it's so unstable that is off.
