> welcome to the newshour. these are the top international stories: the man blamed for the alleged coup attempt in south sudan says it was all a misunderstanding. >> weapons inspectors reveal details of how they plan to disarm syria's chemical arsenal. >> the $17 billion deal with russia that gets ukraine out of a financial hole. it's also likely to anger
protesters. >> the u.s. admit it strip searched an indian diplomat at the center of an international dismra dispute. >> plus... . >> it's like a bad dream >> ..and america's death belt. >> fighting in south sudan following a coup. violence between military factions was reported. 8,000 people have sought shelter in the u.n. compound. meantime the man blamed for the coup attempt has denied trying to overthrow the cost. riek machar has reportedly told a news website what took place in juba was a misunderstanding
between presidential yards within their division, it was not a coup attempt. back in juba the president salva kiir says he is in control, but thousands are still living in u.n. bases there. >> fleeing for their lives, these people are looking for a safe place to hide from the fighting. the united nations base in juba, the message from the leaders was to go home. >> translation: when you came here you were looking for peace. now there is no fighting. now we are telling you that everyone should go back to their house. listen to me. listen to me. >> but the crowd is far from reassured. >> someone can be in his house. other people come in and ask him to speak a certain language. if they couldn't speak, they can take them out of his house and kill them. >> the situation on the grounds is dire. thousands have taken refuge,
thousands waiting outside. at least three women have given birth at the base. officials say they are running out of food. sanitation is an issue. if the crisis goes on much longer they may be unable to cope. >> thousands by thousands civilians have taken refuge into two bases in juba. it is quite trying for the capabilities and the means of armies in terms of medical, food, support, water, and protection. >> soldiers at the south sudanese army are fighting over the domestic lines. the government says nazanine moshiri riek machar's forces
have been completed. >> his forces have been defeated. there's no one there in the city. >> an unknown number of civilians, women and children are among the dead. world leaders are asking for the world's newest nation to show restraint. circumstances on the ground are in flux. south sudanese people are caught in the middle. >> the u.n. humanitarian coordinator in south sudan is in charge of a large part of the u.n.'s mission there and jones us won the phone now. toby, thank you for joining us on the show. we have seen there in that story the south sudan authorities telling people to go home. they are refusing to do so. how bad is the situation on the ground. do you have numbers as to how many people have been displaced? >> i think they are up to 20,000 people in our bases here in
juba, in the capital. there's two bases. each one is accommodating about 10,000 people. you know, what the people want, and i have been listening to many of them, to the children, to the women, to the men, the community leaders. there's a sense of fear and a sense of shock at what has happened in the past 72 hours. so i have told them and reassured them that, you know, the united nations primary mission here is two fold. on the one hand it's to protect civilians, if they are in need of that, and it's also to work with the state so that the state institutions can get up and running. in this particular case, of course, it's the protection of civilians, which is our primary concern for people who sought rev uge with us. paradoxically, i should say is as i moved around the city of juba, it is a far safer more
stable city than it has been during any other moment since sunday, when the hospitalilities erupted because of a political struggle in the ruling party. i'm going to get back out into the city in the afternoon and go to some of the neighbourhoods in the outskirts of town. there are people on the streets, cars moving around. motorbikes, taxis ferrying people around. many government employees are back at work. there's a paradevelop in what i have seen. >> this is a long-running dispute, a lot of tensions. violence could flare up at any moment. what do you think is the most important issue to try to resolve when it comes to these ethnic differences. >> well, you know, i'm not sure
i would characterise it that way. when you look at key people in key leadership positions here, they are also representatives of different communities. i believe this is more of a political struggle going on between two factions with different political views. i think it's very important that we really focus on that, and what i have actually encouraged some members of the government, with whom i've just been in touch, members at the ministerial level, from different backgrounds and different geographic regions of the country, i said the more you can get on the radio and make public statements, to reassure the communities, to call for calm and insist on law and order, the better. i think there's every possibility in the capital, that the worst could be behind us, and that we'll slowly but surely
be able to see a capital as we have a few days back. your story is mentioned some concerns outside juba. we are watching that carefully. we are present in over 40 different locations. this is one of the world's largest aid operations already. it's one of the largest peacekeeping locations, and we are keeping careful tabs and walking closely with different leaders from different communities, and with the religious leaders to make sure that things are calm and under control throughout the country. >> toby, thank you very much for speaking to us. that's toby lanser there, the u.n. humanitarian coordinator in south sudan. >> an operation delicate and unprecedented. the international watchdog of chemical weapons released details of its plans to destroy syria's stockpile of weapons. the multinational operation
involved guarded complies transporting the agents by road and sea to italy. the process aims to remove the arsenal from syria by the end of the year, and be completely destroyed by march. now, let's take a closer look at the proposed plan. the stockpile, which is about 500 tonnes of sarin, nerve agents and mustard gas would be taken cross-country in russian armoured trucks guarded by syrian troops. they would be tracked by u.s. satellite navigation equipment to the port of latakia. they'll be loaded to danish and u.s. cargo ships. the ships are to sail to an undisclosed italian port where the cargo will be transferred to the mc "cape ray", the u.s.
vessel. it would be equipment with two chemical reactor chambers. michael louis is from the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons and speaks to us from the hague. thank you for joining us on the show. it seems like it's a very international effort. was there any hesitation for any of the governments involved in terms of being involved in this operation? >> there was some misunderstanding at the beginning, when we got into this business of planning the removal, relocation of syria's chemical inventory, if you will. that - these were - we were talking about chemical weapons being moved around the world, and asking countries to receive chemical weapons and destroy them. >> it's not the case. it's a major advantage for this operation. only a very small portion of
syria's chemical weapons program actually is stored in the form of ready to use chemical warfare agents. 98%, 899% of all these chemicals we are talking about are component chemicals that have to be mixed first, and loaded into munitions. and be chemical warfare or weapons. so that really reduces the level of risk when we are talking about moving bulk chemicals from point a to point b - whether it be across the country on ships, what have you. so that took a little while to... >> environmentally, as we mentioned, and you, yourself, very concerned about the destruction process, transferring the cargo. we want to know what will happen to the waste product. how safe is the process? >> well, first of all we're talking about two different
parts of syria's chemical warfare program, with two different destruction plans. the priority chemicals, they are the most dangerous, potentially dangerous - 500 tonnes that you alluded to. that'll be done on the u.s. vessel at sea. and, in fact, we had the chance to examine that technology, which is a proven technology. there are two hydrolysis units and, in fact, hydrolysis nuclearisation. it's the cleanest environmentally - the cleanest methodology which for destroying the warfare agents. the vessel, which serves as the platform, everything will be completely self-contained. all the inputs that will be required to destroy those warfare agents will be stored on the boat. all of what is called the reaction mass, which results from the destruction process,
all of that will be stored on that vessel. and when you talk about reaction, you are talking about a different waste. >> just to get in here, it sounds like you are optimistic that this is a safe process. as we understand it, your plans have to be agreed on and approved. how confident are you that they will be approved? >> well, now, yesterday the executive council basically noted the destruction plan and - and all of these components, the arrangements for packing up the chemicals in syria, for getting them on to trucks for moving them to the port and loading them on to the norwegian and danish vessels, all have been discussed and approved. the director-general has given the full a to z plan. so this is a welcome development. >> we were just running out of time, but i want to squeeze in
one last question. there are reports out of syria that chemical weapons are used on civilians. how confident are you that your team has been given access to all of syria's stockpile. >> our director-general has said publicly on various occasions we are quite confident that syria's declaration to us is complete. and we have various reasons for believing that. furthermore, if any country, any state party of the o.p.c.w. has information leading it to believe that syria has a secret site and is holding out and withholding weapons of its chemical weapon program from us, they can give us that information and we have the mandate to go and investigate the claims or concerns. that's not happened. in fact, the declaration that we got from syria was very much in
line with what intelligence estimates of the united states and russian federation had. >> thank you very much for speaking with us. michael lieuen spokesman for the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons. >> more to come on this al jazeera newshour. russia's foreign minister has been talking about ukraine, syria and iran. we'll have expert analysis on russia's expansive foreign policies. >> plus, we meet people in bangladesh who have become victims of a struggle against the government. >> in sport - european champions bayern munich look to become champions in morocco. jo will have all the details later.
>> an al jazeera investigation found evidence that intelligence extracted by torture in a libyan gaol cell may have been used in the british legal system. >> a leading libbian politician said he was forced to name disdents who were detained by police in london. >> this is sasha abramsky, a notorious prison. >> this beautiful house. >> sard and bell were brought and tortured with the help of the british. these allegations form the basis of a lawsuit against the british government. the men allege they were pawns in a deal. muammar gaddafi renounced his weapons of mass destruction and was welcomed back into the community of nations.
on the same day a $1 billion deal was announced for gas exploration rights in india. after the fall the role played by british intelligence agencies was discovered. >> when the rebels came to tripoli, they ransacked all sorts of buildings, such as this one. it was in the office of spy chief that revealed the col app ration between british and libyan intelligence services. >> he says he was tortured to give up information about libyans living in britain. >> translation: sometimes they had come with questions and answers done and force me to sign it. they would mention names saying, "these people supported armed activity." >> we tracked down hash -- hash
, whose name -- hashem whose name belhaj was forced to give up. >> many times they accused me the terrorism. they brought all the documents. it was clear what was from libya. >> he wants us to meet his family. after his release from prison he was placed under house arrest, and that his family suffered the treatment by the british police. >> translation: they could search the house. they came at night, knocking hard at the door, scaring my wife and children. >>hashem is part of another lawsuit. the british government says it is committed to investigating
allegations of mistreatment and stands against torture and never asked any other country to carry it out. >> for more of that investigation, you can watch people in power as it examines the relationship between the u.k. and libyan secret services. the program airs wednesday at 2230 gmt. there's plenty of material online. watch a web-exclusive interview and see for yourself the documents that led to the investigation. the address on your screen. police car con shows, people, and power. >> a russian foreign minister sergei lavrov is accusing the west of putting pressure on people in the ukraine to shoes e.u. over russia. viktor yanukovych signed a deal with russia on tuesday including
cheaper gas and a $17 billion loan. protesters have been culling for the president to stand down. sergei lavrov expects the choices of the ukrainian people. >> in spite of the decisions that were taken yesterday by moscow, kiev is free to make a choice. >> translation: our opposition is based on respect. choice of the ukrainian people. as president putin has stressed, we don't impose anything on anyone. >> martin mccauley is a russian expert. thank you for joining us. on the show, how much is this really about trade and any, or is it really more about the - about europe and russia in a power play? . >> it's both, because russia now is turning away from europe,
turning away from the west, pointing to the east. putin would like to put together a eurasian economic union, russia, ukraine, belarus and pakistan. that would be powerful. ukraine would be crucial in the mix. putin, who in his speech on 12th of this month talked about conservative values, traditional values, russian values, and the values of the church and so on, emphasising those, rejecting the values of the west. he's saying to the ukrainians, you should be with us, you are our brother. >> that may be, it may benefit russia and moscow. kiev is stuck in the middle. is kiev better off going with
moscow or have they missed the boat. >> if you look at the conditions, the $15 billion loan, almost certainly russia will impose the same conditions as the imf. in ordinary words, balance the budget, restructure the labour market and economy. in order to do that, the ukrainians will have to engage in pain of the changes. if you look at belarus, russia extended a note to belarus and they impose the same conditions as the imf. ukraine is forced - russia will force ukraine to restructure. you have to make changes and so on to modernize and so on. if it does that, it's okay, because the imf and the european union will insist on the same
changes. if it doesn't do that, russia will expect more. we don't know if russia will get $15 billion straight away. ukraine wanted $17 billion. will it be a bit now, and if you introduce reforms, then you will get more money and so on. if you look at trade between ukraine and russia and the europe european union. if the ukraine carry out the reforms, they are doing down the right path. >> a russian expert from the university of london speaking to us. >> now, new delhi police removed security barricades from outside the american embassy in a growing dispute over an indian diplomat. the indian counsel general in
new york was arrested and distrip searched. the treatment was called despicable and barbaric. >> outside the unembassy in new delhi. police oversaw the removal of concrete barricades. it's a display of anger from indian authorities, a sign that diplomatic relations with washington are deteriorating. >> indian authorities reportedly asked u.s. consular officers to return identity cards and stopped them flying out of the country. the incident is one of the top stories in the indian media. tensions between the two countries has been escalating since india's dispute consule general was arrested in new york on 12 december. they say devyani khobragade was handcuffed and strip searched and kept in a cell with drug atickets before posting a
$250,000 bail. >> more steps should be taken against the united states until an unconditional apology has been given. >> india shouldn't hold their breath. >> there's no indication that n inappropriate matters occurred. we are know this is sensitive. we can speak for part of it, but we are looking at what happened. >> this is a document filed at the manhattan federal court on 11 december. india's deputy consule general promised via a housekeeper brought from india the minimum wage of $9 per hour. the emfellow was paid $3.21. it was claimed that devyani khobragade submitted false documents to obtain a passport.
>> she was paying her employee what she should have. i'm not going to get into the details of the facts of the case with you at the time. it's an ongoing case, and we will litigate that in the appropriate forum. >> charges laid carry a 10-year gaol sentence. neither the u.s. or india is showing a sign of backing down and taking the diplomatic stalemate. >> for more on this we are crossing to new delhi. what can you tell us about the spat between the united states and india? >> well, absolutely it's been a talking point across india from the media to parliament. we had a statement from the foreign minister of india, suggesting that india needs to respond as a nation in a unified manner, and take unified
measures to make its point felt when it comes to the incident, and he has expressed his solidarity with the diplomat and her family. strong words said in parliament, and further to that the prime minister of india released a statement describing the treatment of the diplomats at the center of the incident as despicable, deplorable and the parliament itself calling for more action from the ind jan government. we are yet to see what next in terms of action and respondent. the indian government is waiting for the american side to respond and make comments to what has been taking place in the last 24 hours. >> it's up in the air. stay with us for a while. there has been another important event, development in india. politicians there approved a landmark anticorruption bill creating an independent
ombudsman who will have the power to investigate government wrongdoing. that opens the way for corrupt politicians and civil servants to be prosecuted. what has been the reaction to the anticorruption bill. >> well, look, this news has been huge. it's huge not just for the fact that indians generally want corruption to be dealt with, it's a huge political and social issue. this is an historic debate, bill. it goes back to the 19 of 0s when there was a call in 1963 for an independent ombudsman to monitor corruption in the halls of power of india. a lot of good reaction from an ain corruption person, who has welcomed this. he said the bigger challenge lies ahead. implementation. you need a state to be involved.
that's where the challenge lies. the critics say you may be setting yourself up for another level of corruption. there's important feedback coming back from today's historic moment in the house. historic nonetheless. >> thank you very much for speaking to us. reporting to us from new delhi. >> let's take a check on the weather with richard. thank you. i thought we'd look at the weather across the continent of africa. you can see i can't say the northern parts there's cloud moving through algeria. as we move to central africa, there's rains. they are pushing to the south. if we take ghana, for instance, we have lost the rain there. this time of the year the amounts are well down. december sees 10mm. the weather conditions are looking fine.
plenty of sunshine. you have to head south to pick up on the rains. looking at the satellite you see the cloud hooking threatening. are -- looking threatening. in harari the rain almost doubles compared with november. heavy rain extending across the region to parts of mozambique, where we are likely to see flooding in the next few days. there's a tropical cyclone. it's heading towards manslaughter ishes. it will bring heavy rain and strong winds next week. >> still to come on the program - malaysia's economy is booming. many struggle to put food on the table. we have a report and analysis. kobe bryant proves he's back to his best. jo will have the details in part.
>> welcome back. a reminder of the top stories. south sudan's former vice president denied trying to stage a coup. riek machar has been in hiding since fighting began. hundreds have died. the capital juba seems to be calmer. >> the international watchdog on chemical weapons released details of its destruction plan
of the syria's stock people. the multinational organization will see the arsenal removed, to be neutralized at sea. >> barricades from outside the embassy in a growing dispute over an indian diplomat. the consule general in new york was arrested and strip search pd. >> a special repertoire on the right to foods has wrapped up a tour of the country on how well it's feeding its people. despite a drop in poverty levels, half a million are below the poverty line. >> in a land of apparent plenty, it's hard to imagine how anyone could go hungry. fruit, vegetable, meat are on sale. there are almost half a million
people living on the poverty line, in malaysia. mother of three knows house that feels. she has just started working with a project for single mothers, selling purified water to earn extra money. when her three kids were under 18, she used to receive $100 a month in benefits. now it's $30. there were files when she had little more than a dollar a day to feed the family. >> there was two years of my life. >> tesco has reduced foods, reduced price foods. they are good vegetables. >> things are no easier for this family. mohan used to work as a body guard. he had to stop when he lost part of his leg for diabetes.
they rely on friends for handouts of food for cash and to survive. >> friends 100, about 170, sorry. >> by most standards food is relatively cheap in malaysia. on a limited budget it's a different story. >> to give you an idea of how difficult it is to live on $1 a day. i'm picking up groceries. i have bananas, they are about $3. a bag of apples, another $3 and brockoly. that's a dollar. it's a total of $7 and it wouldn't keep me going for a few days. it was antoin et's budget for herself and three kids for a week. >> there has been a drop in poverty rates from 4% of
households in 2009 to 1.7%. malaysia had this development goal. that's of little comfort to antoinette as she struggles to find enough money to feed her family. >> for more we are joined by the united nations special envoy on the right to food. he's live from kl. thank you for joining us on the show. if you could, what struck us most from your research? >>. >> well, it's interesting to note that despite impressive growth in reducing poverty some have left behind. foreign migrant workers. 4 million on which the oil industry relies.
refugees and indigenous whose access to land is threatened by projects and the use that is made of the land on which they depend for their livelihoods. >> i studied the need for social protection, and i looked at noout rirn transition. the fact that as diets change. the rates of diabetes increase with the important consequence for the health care system in the country. >> i want to take you up on that point. there are high levels of obesity and diabetes in malaysia. to what extent are their problems linked to food security. is it it because they can't access the right foods or is it education? >> well, actually there are two changes. one is a poverty for low income
households, for whom food is too expensive. the government is making progress by establishing a minimum wage for those that find work. and those that do not may be left out. the other issue is overweight. >> 15% of the malaysian population is obese. 15% have diabetes. this is a problem that mexico, brazil, fast-growing economies that undergo the transition encounter. it's important that people are better educated about the consequences of nutritional choice, and that schools are given adequate diets and meals. otherwise the rates will increase as they have in the other countries. >> apart from education, as you mentioned. what else - what other solutions are needed for the problems that
you have highlighted. >> i think the priorities today are essentially for malaysia at two levels. first, establishing a more robest social protection scheme to make sure no one is left out from general progress. from the moments malaysians rely on handouts on ad hoc schemes not providing the right to social security that they deserve and malaysia can afford this. secondly there's a need to rebuild local food systems to produce more food so malaysians have to rely less on processed food heavy in fats, sugar and salt. that is the best response to the noout rirn transition that the country is going flow. >> thank you for sharing your
insight. the u.s. envoi speaking on the right to food in kuala lumpur. >> eight activists have been incidenced to death in murder. a tailor was stabbed to doth on his way home during a transport blockated called by opposition supporters. their sentences come amid another nationwide road blockade. as explained, many of the victims are innocent bystanders. >> as political violence in bangladesh is more prominent. so have scenes like this. general strikes called by the opposition party protest against the government. political activists had a show of the course. the acts of vandalism has been high. 27 bus drivers have been killed for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. >> of course i'm scared. there's just four people who work to feed our families.
>> it's not just the drivers who have to worry. passengers have to think twice before setting food in a bus. >> some of us have to go to work. it can take hours to get to where we need to. >> buses are tarted for being on the street. there's no time on the roads on those days from the driver's point of view. they are just doing their jobs. attacks on buses are getting more intense. >> translation: this is a new development. attackers spread petroleum around the bus. this is what happened before. >> as a potentially contentious election period is entered. more look likely to become victims of political violence. >> greenpeace says charges could
be dropped against 30 activists held in russia. the parliament there is expected to vote on a prison amnesty bill. if it is approved people charged with hooliganism could be freed, including the environmental activists. they were arrested after boarding an oil rig. >> peter was an activist and arrested in september. he was released last month. he says he intends to keep campaigning. >> we feel like we have spend too much in prison for a crime we didn't commit that we were illegally arrested. this is a way for russia to start celebrating human rights. i'm not prepared to say i see that coming at this point. >> we are not giving up. for me giving up means that we turn the planning over to the
oil companies. that's close to suicide. it's not something we contemplate. we plan to campaign and i am sure russia does. >> national security agency whistleblower edward snowden promised to help brazil in exchange for asylum. he made an open appeal in a newspaper article. this follows revelations that president dilma rousseff's phones was hacked. president obama has met bosses of top technology companies. a court ruled on monday that the monday security agency say could be unconstitutional. eight companies called on barack obama to curve mass surveillance. >> opponents of the death penalty in the united states say incident men and women are being executed because of a broken and

be killed because i'm seeing people around me get killed, okay." >> in prison for assault, griffin was convicted of fatally stabbing another inmate at this correctional center. a witness died before trial and a second recanneded his evidence, a fact hidden from the defense. the prosecutors knew this makeshift dagger was found in the hands of another inmate. >> they cited a conviction. a conviction by a man with the same name. >> do you have faith in the snm. >> very little. >> it's a familiar story in the death belt. 143 people exonerated while on death row. 18 by dna - most people of colour. >> we are human.
as humans, we make mistakes. we don't listen very well to the client. the prosecutors don't listen verile with to their evidence. >> you are implicating not just of the prosecution, but the whole system - judges, defense attorneys. >> the police, all of us. into with three decades of life lost, griffin is looking at the changes. he questions the system determined to kill him. >> me and a lot of other people have been used as stepping stones to broaden people's careers. you know, like who is he, he's nothing to me, but he can help be met where i'm trying to go. so he's a pawn in a big game. pawns are sacrificed. >> griffin is suing a system that cost him three decades of
influential members of the third ryk. lisa has the story. >> this is the writing of a diary of alfred rosenberg, hundreds of pages from 1936 or 1934, a piece of history turned over to the holocaust museum by custom enforcement. >> he joined the nazi party before hitler, who laid out the racial photograph, the airian at the top, jews down the bottom. >> he thought he had figured out immediately after the end of world war i and stuck to the belief, through the end. >> the belief was that jews were germany's deadly enemy. after a conference on the jewish question. rosen berg notes:
>> rosenberg, who helped to issuingest rate the looting of artwork and valuables worried about his competitors in the nazi inner circle. he felt that he was not really all that able to compete with them. so there is a sense of frustration, that you can see in the pages of the diary. >> but hitler does anoit rows ebb berg to oversee territories in russia. >> rosen berg wrote, "now your greatest hour has come." >> his words were used at the nuremberg trials where he was convicted and hanged in 1946. the document vanished into history. >> getting the dire into into the olo custody museum is a tale
worthy of the a spy model. >> it was taken by a man who smuggled it into the u.s. his estate turned over nazi documents to the holocaust museum, but not the diary. the hunt was on. it took years to find if in buffalo new york. in possession of a man who may have gotten it. homeland securities, investigators and the u.s. security agency swept in. returning a document that was part of the history of the world, the diary is ready for historians to decipher. and the public. the museum put all 425 pages online. >> time for sport and here is jo. >> thank you very much. european champions bayern munich arrested the finals of the
