a massive bomb attack in the center of somalia's capital on saturday is now reported to have killed more than two hundred people hundreds have been protesting on the streets of market to shoot voicing their anger at the attack it was the most powerful bomb blast to ever hit a city which suffers regularly from these types of attacks a residential district was also hit by a smaller car bomb somalia has declared three days of national mourning. it's still not clear who was behind these blasts senior members denied responsibility catherine sawyer reports from nairobi in neighboring kenya. when people in somalia's capital mogadishu are trying to come to terms with one of the worst car bomb attacks ever a truck bomb exploded outside a hotel at an intersection lined with government offices restaurants and shops
9:03 pm
hours later a second blast struck another business district in the city most of the buildings in those areas have been destroyed still being pulled out of the rubble president mohammed up to life from a jew visited the scene and his government has declared three days of mourning and you are the. target of these terrorist is not government officials but civilians as you see here there are no government buildings only civilians who are going about their daily life we have to come together and fight these monsters until we eradicate them from our country. speaking to our jazeera the united nations deputy special envoy to somalia say despite such attacks the security situation around the country has improved a great efforts have been made by the government to particularly secure city but also other areas and in the country but nevertheless when one is desperate enough to get through these kind of things do happen and we've seen it yet again into mali
9:04 pm
and fortunately doctors are doing their best with limited resources to deal with the many people who have been injured dozens are in critical condition several have lost limbs so. what happened yesterday was incredible i have never seen such a thing before and the death toll is uncountable corpses were burned and no one could recognize them. attacks on soft targets like markets and restaurants have become common in somalia this one apart is just how large it was and the devastation it has cost. right now people are in shock hospital supplies like blood are i did he needed many are wondering how someone is able to drive of year called packed with explosives into the heart of the city catherine so you are dizzy nairobi kenya. of war what's happening in somalia we can speak to david autor he's a counterterrorism and security consultant with t.j.'s intelligence consultants here in london thank you very much you're coming in to speak to us this attack has
9:05 pm
all the hallmarks of an al shabaab attack and yet they're denying it why aren't this is the mother of all bombs you know and you know are they in the most city of this just reminds of also what happened you know in one thousand nine hundred eighty when we had the twin bombs in the u.s. embassies of tanzania and so on and also in kenya so i think you know this is going to be one of the biggest ever bombs that you know the new civilian government you know has actually witnessed and reminds us of also the nine eleven attack you know in new york city so you know i don't know how you know they got a new government is going to cope you know with these kind of attack but you know it is really really devastating and the amount of lives that have been lost you know with even frightening a group like al shabaab to deny responsibility but i think you know it covers all the hallmarks of our if you look at the activities that they've been doing for recently weeks and months and how does it work with in somalia or
9:06 pm
are they a monolithic group or are they becoming more splintered more fragmented more decentralized as we've seen with i.c.l. and al qaeda in recent years of course if i were. there is a liberalization that split into two you know just about a year ago when i still came into being and you know some of the factions you know formed you know the slum extent of east africa and i was of which really wants to be kind of a somalia based organization despite the fact that he has links with with our qaeda core and works alongside with groups like this let me get my grip. very want to show that you know they are kind of you know assuming they are basic on those issues but they have different factions and say you know they've got their eyes who fucks you which you know is actually fighting against you know their kind of faction so you know it is a little bit difficult for us to determine which of the groups but this really bears the hallmarks because if you look at the recent attack that accord on the levels of september twenty seventh seen when i attacked you know somalia
9:07 pm
a military base also used similar tactics you know of using the car bomb you know to strike against you know we had targets so it it would be really difficult you know to deny these they've been operating in their region for over a decade now and what you're saying are they getting stronger of course you know are getting stronger because you know what you can see you know within somalia is you know you're have you know the recent president just change in you know his security achieves a war that has an effect is you have this gap where the new military chiefs you know would then you know be able to take over from the ones so this also creates a serious problem and as we know turkey has also introduced a new military base which was just to buy the fest and what that means is you know there is a plan by the somalian government to then pilot out which has been responsible for for fighting against all these different factions you know is kind of very very
9:08 pm
heavy on the hands of the somalian government which is better than the previous administration in terms of how it wants to talking but it is still weak right comparatively and i suppose this is this is a big problem now because now that the government in somalia has its fair share of challenges both economic and political if the government that is struggling to assert its control over the entire country what how then do they respond to a group like this two attacks like this one needs to change in a counterterrorism strategy of course you know there is much that needs to be done you know previously we've been able to keep. a lot of advice to you governments and how to tackle these issues where the most important thing is for this woman in government to understand that in order for you to try to solve the problem of. you know you have to really look at the right problems you know so we have put ourselves you know in positions where we work with local organizations that is more important for us to give confidential solutions to the government of somalia so if they're interested in actually having to deal with these issues there is
9:09 pm
a play turia of issues that needs to be done you know or think you know we would be able to advise the government on all confidentiality on the best way to go forward with this well thank you very much for sharing your analysis with us david autor thank you very much. when our exit polls in austria thirty one year old conservative sebastian kurtz on course to become the youngest leader in the world early indications show his center right people's party in the lead with thirty point two percent the once mighty social democrat party looks at the third place but is now projected for second place with twenty seven point one percent that's despite a series of blunders and scandals during its campaign that put science question struck as far right freedom party in first place on twenty five point nine percent but he may end up forming a coalition with curt's who stole some of his thunder by talking tough on immigration a current has declared victory and says he will fight for a new style of politics in austria believing they're not real and i mean today the
9:10 pm
very two men and women in this country gave us a great mandate we must be aware of this opportunity and women i know men are putting their hopes into this movement we will use all our strength and all of our fight to bring about change in this country i invite you to go on this path with us there is much to do to establish a new style new culture of politics in this country. well let's get more from david peoples party headquarters in vienna and so david atmosphere around there must be quite buoyant given that kurtz's is still on course for getting the most votes. that's right mariama essentially is no doubt now that the projections and the counting that's still going on does indicate an emphatic picture ie for a man who turns out to be the world's youngest leader only thirty one sebastian kurtz as he said in that short speech he gave here to his supporters has made the
9:11 pm
impossible possible this has a turning point in austrian politics and it actually means that we will see a whole new dimension in the politics of the european union as well as the domestic policies here in in syria itself now to analyze exactly what it means both for austria and indeed for the european union i have with me a political scientist professor hinds. now looking at this everybody thought perhaps that the wave of right wing populism was over it's clearly not it's clearly not an election shows. we have a party system and to sweep artist in is here to stay for the time to come including those as a right wing populist party but having said so of course this is a time because europe saw and to strengthen not disappear in time to come.
9:12 pm
we have a kind of checks and balances now which is three parties and none of them do have a constitutional majority of which is a group that's right hundred eighty three seats nobody can stand on their own because they don't have enough votes but at the moment everybody is assuming that the coalition will be between the popular party and the freedom party the hard right freedom party is that the way you think it's going to go that's possible it's likely but it's not the only option out option of course would be a continuation of the grand coalition of recess which by. the leader so that. option the least likely option would be the social democrats and freedom party it's still possible but that's not likely so now looking at the implications of this implications both here with the muslim community and perhaps indications on the
9:13 pm
european union side as a whole what was it do you think that swung it for the right here in austria. the party and the freedom party today for how she immigration laws i'm thinking islamist parties pose of time so if we have a government of the two of them we can expect. a loss as well. so that was one of the reason of course for their own party it's not the only reason because the freedom party was. already for the last decades i mean we didn't have to. concede so there are issues as well and to set. a conservative you know strip maybe in europe because all of our you want to social democrats are losing as well and briefly professor what does this mean for the future hopes of reform inside the european union because austria seems to be
9:14 pm
turning towards a visit grad group towards the east towards the troublesome twenty years old. but i remember she was telling me much shape for india opinion is not in question so there are sort of freedom projects that are going to play maine and. presidency . next year. of the european union and the freedom party doesn't want to be isolated so we will remain we seem to have opinion union but that might be some closing up and warming up is to be shaken up that's that's post. but it's not necessarily a bad thing to have close relations with a neighboring car departed should not be an identity of to the european union. professor thank you very much for that analysis so we've heard that the kurds it's about kurds who's celebrating what seems to be an emphatic victory tonight is still
9:15 pm
waiting for word from the president he's not being called on to launch talks for the government so we're still waiting to see exactly when that will happen probably tomorrow morning will be a great deal of change in the results of the counting continues it's just a case of exactly where the social democrats and up but it does look like the hard right to freedom party will be invited into a coalition at the moment with the world's youngest leader the chancellor in waiting at the whiz kid as they call him sebastian coe ok david thanks very much david. was more to bring you in this program venezuelans voting as well in regional elections over there which could hand the opposition another victory over president the duros catalonia as president calls for calm on the eve of spain's deadline for him to clarify whether he's declared independence or not and that in sports the dodgers make perfect start in their championship series and you will have that

story much more. on now for the latest from syria where the final assault is underway to reach how i still fight is still holed up in pockets of the northern city of raka u.s. bank syrian forces say almost all of the civilians and about two hundred seventy five i sell fighters have left under a deal that was brokered by tribal leaders on saturday between two and three hundred mostly foreign fighters still thought to be inside the city. as update from an taqiyya in takis high. province. fighting in iraq is confined to a few areas in the center of the city the s.d.f. which is a coalition of kurdish fighters backed by the united states of america the shelling of those areas with the hope to try to evict eyes of fighters from from there there's been a little to back to buy at a time for
9:17 pm
a deal backed by tribes and you know how to convince ourselves why it is to withdraw but that didn't work some of the foreign fighters insist that they would like to stay and fight to the death but this is why the significant development of the centers that i sit is goosing ground is losing their self-proclaimed capital in iraq. but also in deals all of this suffering some major setbacks the loss the city of. pulling of towards areas on the border with iraq in two thousand and fourteen or fifteen i was hoping to use iraq as a platform to expand further towards. and let. that narrative is now being reversed. iraq's kurdish leadership has rejected baghdad's demand that it cancels the outcome of last month's a session referendum as a precondition for talks to resolve the dispute rockey president for my sermon iraqi kurdish president massoud barzani have met in so many a to discuss the recent

9:20 pm
civility serenity and also from the same democracy as the inspiration for the decisions we have to make on the eve of the day when mr preacher one is expected to confirm or deny his declaration of independence his presence here at memorial ceremony for a hero of catalan independence is not going unnoticed and many here are drawing parallels with that situation. there has been much emotion stoked here in the past few weeks but the attempt to frame this as a story of oppression of a wealthy region by the central government is not convincing the european union despite the violent crackdown by madrid on any attempt to push ahead with self-determination if the spanish government try to. our me i'm convinced that they can. answer them with a peaceful. position. never use the balance to defend our arguments.

all of. the catalonia of today is different from the embattled place it was during the spanish civil war but for those gabbert. the specter of pasta heroes of the cause is never far away even if catalonia is pro independence politicians step back there's no guarantee that they will pay the price for their part in spain's current constitutional crisis. al-jazeera barcelona. well venezuelans are currently voting to elect new governors for all twenty three states it's a regional vote and it's the first actually since a new super body was created by the president nicolas maduro and that super body has powers to overrule the opposition controlled national assembly and amend the constitution. polls have put the opposition on course to win many of the state

they are not proportionate to what the concessions that we gave she also addressed reports of divisions in the trumpet ministration on iran notably between herself and secretary of state rex tillerson some have even suggested haley could soon replace tillerson that's so dramatic that that's so ridiculous no i think what you have is sometimes secretary tell us and i have different opinions but when we come into the n.s.a. everybody has different opinions also doing the rounds of the us on the talk shows the israeli prime minister if they want to save the deal then the european allies should start working with their the united states to actually correct its deficiencies and there are many they have to they're very clear and they have to be changed and it's an opportunity that president trump has created for them to fix this very bad deal i'm donald trump's national security adviser argued the president's position was already having an effect in europe they already are
