Safe Zones in Syria, and a Norwegian man Talks about Turkey

They had the man who is in charge of NATO on the BBC Arabic giving a speech.

He is Norwegian. He used to be the Norwegian prime minister.

I don't know if he's really in charge of NATO, but he has a fancy title.

So here he is. He was saying that the attack on the people and army of Turkey in the south of that country was very deplorable.

(Reporters and camera-people rush across the main hall to take photos. )

This is Jens Stoltenberg.

Jens Stoltenberg looks up.

Right, so about this bomb: people in Turkey are very angry about it. Some of them blame the government, I think so there have been riots, which the Turkish police have been attacking:

In the mean, the US announces that together with Turkey, they want to set up a safe, Daaesh-free (ISIS-free) zone in the north of Syria for all the Syrians:

This man gave some insight about what was going on:

He asked: how is this safe zone going to be enforced? Will the US and Turkey send ground troops, or will it be purely through air power? Will the Kurdish armies be allowed a role?
