a recent survey suggests as many as one in four people here but despite this country being one of the most multicultural in the world. we begin in barcelona where thousands of people are protesting on the streets after spain's prime minister announced moves to impose direct rule over catalonia that angry that is taking steps to suspend the autonomy of a castle and regional government he's asked for article one five five to be triggered which would mean castle and his leaders including its president carter. and a snap election is called measures must now be approved by spain senate next week says madrid had no choice but to take these unprecedented actions. the government has had to trigger article one five five of the constitution that
was not our wish or intention it never was i think that most of spain society knows this article one five five is part of our constitution and it is only invoked in extremely extraordinary circumstances no government in any democratic country can accept. the law is ignored or changed this is done by trying to impose a criteria on someone else you have a secure life out of also in a speech to al-jazeera and so a significant development once again for catalonia and the crowds are very angry. yes they are the sad. thing. to test it. to. sufficient they mean to say it's done but of course this is
morphed into something much bigger than that into a protest against. i discovered its decision to infer the school won five had to actually push it through through to the senate which the senate will actually rubber stamp it on friday now it isn't just a one for five five that's the issue it's wants it's being done around that vehicle so to speak the suggestion that there could be elections that's what's just it it's actually good that probably should be called for by the senate so the sense that the senate dissolved parliament to do that but over the picture there is the sacking all call a speech to the rest of. the incidents. and they will be replaced by three things rights in terms of ministers or so whatever civil
servants go with it and you have a situation where there will be. a. true. there will be true of election some points in the next six months ago this is the last of all the. losing security minister. look at the situation with counselor any of these in the sense that they. are the springs to take the whole instruction book from the troops face to the ball that could actually be replacing some sense but let's get straight to looking at this demonstration of what except a little given that so. little things tell me what they say sure what it's about and. i come from the music that all these are not of
any use a show that was born more than fifty years old and now. more than seventy thousand members tell me what is the general mood. as you know most of population. sorry. it's. just the nature of evolution what's going on. in the story that it's a. very big. oh this is nothing like. what. these people don't want to. do and that moment of ago was always. homesick thing because you think. well.
now what do we want these democracy and these of us who really be twofold here you know them on stations that do they eat for free you know. that's a both boys not good old. but. here we are france out of forty in the. problem. of some extreme. this is not a. player when you go on to think there's a possibility that we'll do you do you do. this well. among us try writing forty thousand i think times. down to where
a lot of. these politically and legally known brands shown on all these things so. of course we have. all. these. from the side of the spine. which have been elected democratically by all of us except for tell me this i'm sorry to. break. the. king of spain. will be. internationalization situation does that mean that what's happening here is due. to georgia
if somebody feeds the fish is it possible that the timing is wrong to try to get independence when you go top stories. do you think it is. this time for. these i think. that these white. guys have been doing interviews. saying is this. there is. maybe a. real danger that this could. happen with. slovenia with the european union. anything before they became bevan's so yes we will see what. they say before. they side because.
we we see. thank you very much indeed thank you was. the only hope is that there could be some sort of discussion at the parliamentary level here in catalonia subset of do amongst the parties here to have their own elections possibly this article one five five actually goes into action it's been triggered but it won't be in place until friday i think that's just that's the way it's still time yet possibly the subsidy last minute solution but that could be the declaration of independence we'll be hearing from the president. later this week we will indeed understand his life.
now there's been another suicide bombing in the afghan capital the taliban says it targets is a minivan carrying a military academy at west and kabul killing fifteen soldiers on friday at least eighty nine people were killed in two say. jennifer. from kabul. extra security guards started work at the mosque last month but they weren't enough to stop friday's attack the bomber entered the mosque before guards started their security searches. is a regular volunteer who helps clean the mosque he was knocked down by the blast then ran inside he says there was smoke and blood everywhere he helped the wounded and move the dead. they do this to divide as they won't be able to hands behind such attacks and they do it for their benefits through their slaves why they come to attack this mosque of course they want to divide us and. i still fighters in
afghanistan said they carried out the attack the shia mosque was about half full with three to four hundred worshippers the bomber waited for prayers to begin before he launched his attack first throwing hand grenades over here a curtain area where women and children were praying he then said himself over here in the middle of worshipers killing him mom and dozens of others workers have already removed the charred carpet and abandoned possessions they say it will take a month before their clean up is complete and the mosque reopens among the mourners or relatives of eight year old mustafa husseini. the president is the father of this country and it's the ability of the father to bring in a country or in the family of the president to protect us from the afghan president ashraf ghani says this is attack and others across afghanistan are crimes against humanity and contrary to islamic values terrorist groups will never succeed in their sinister goals for divisiveness he says and will soon be suppressed and
destroyed by the legitimate struggle of the afghan security and defense forces at least two hundred fifty afghans have been killed in attacks nationwide since tuesday the taliban targeted security forces in the east south southwest and north of the taliban on one hand and the islamic state on the other hand what they are trying to portray that they have the ability to inflict damage not just to the afghan national security forces and the afghan government but to its international counterparts wherever and whenever they want to on martyrs hill on the outskirts of kabul another victim of the mosque attack an elderly woman is laid to rest dozens have been buried here today as this bureau and another body arrives and the morning goes on jennifer glass al jazeera martyrs hill kabul hundreds of kurdish protest says have demonstrated outside the united nations office immobile the capital of iraq's kurdish region they were protesting against the military operation by the
iraqi army in areas disputed by the kurds and by. around one hundred twenty thousand people have been displaced inside iraqi forces launched the campaign in province troops have already seized control of all the disputed areas in northern iraq including the city of kirkuk stephanie decker has more from. there is a feeling of tension here in erbil people are not sure how this is going to play out certainly the protesters that took to the streets really rich orating their cool's of the feeling that they've been stabbed in the back they've been abandoned by the international community by the united states saying that the pressure the kurdish forces occurred to shoulder as we fought so hard to push eisel back within the last three years or so that was praised by the world and they now feel that everyone has turned their back on them of course the irony of this is that you have two forces now the peshmerga and the iraqi forces that were trained and armed by
the united states they fought together just a year ago to push i saw a lot of mosul now they're pointing the guns at each other so certainly a real feeling here of the bandon meant also an element of humiliation the fact that the had to retreat from these areas that the iraqi army moved into and the fact that they had no international support no one actually came out to say that this is not what would be happening so this is something that people are dealing with right now and again these are uncertain times which is why people in erbil are feeling so uncertain and certainly just seeing the movements on the streets far less people out and about as you would expect. still ahead so all of the program. traumatized malnourished and deprived of their child to a health crisis facing child abuse.

involving u.s. and european immigration officials. u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson is in saudi arabia as part of a new push to end the gulf crisis has been for months in saudi arabia the united arab emirates egypt and suspended all ties with katter after accusing us of supporting terrorism but to us and says he doesn't anticipate a breakthrough earlier this week he blamed the saudi led block for being unwilling to find a solution article he reports. he's back u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson has landed in saudi arabia he was here in july then hope signing a memorandum of understanding with carter would be enough to end the blockade it didn't despite his shuttle diplomacy so now he's coming back trying a new tactic for the four blockading countries saudi arabia u.a.e. egypt and bahrain assigning blame them in an interview saying qatar is willing to
negotiate and the saudi led coalition is simply refusing to talk because he tried before he tried to try to be nice with everyone but this stuck him nowhere and produced no results so i think that's probably. the time has come to use some leverage analysts say there is a renewed hope they might be more willing to engage now has the president for example try to put pressure on the saudis in the u.a.e. to be willing to to to me to solve some of the sanctions and stop that they put on the fact that the president has come out now and basically decertified the iran deal is that going to make the saudis more willing to work with us to deal with the situation with god or us president initially put all the blame for the crisis on cutter but after being pushed by his secretaries of state and defense he now says it's time for all sides to talk if i can help mediate between carter and in
particular the. u.a.e. and saudi arabia i would be willing to do so and i think you'd have a deal worked out very quickly his own secretary of state is publicly disagreeing taking the trip while downplaying expectations the g.c.c. crisis will end soon what he does during this trip could very well determine if that is true. al-jazeera a government funded group says it's campaigning to make australians less racist latest figures show a quarter of the country's population is intolerant towards other cultures and ethnicity and that's despite it being one of the most multicultural countries in the world andrew thomas reports from sydney. in one commercial a white man holds open the lift door for a white woman but lets the door close on a black one a white woman steps out discussed it in another taxi driver tries to pick up
a white passenger before an aboriginal's one who's been waiting longer the white passenger refuses to jump the queue but does a strange one of the world's most multicultural countries really need like these more than other places organizers call this the believe in bendigo picnic an annual day of inclusive in a country town when my kids are growing up. to the big market to say people of any other ethnic origin you know because they just won't go. and so now that's changing and more people are coming to live here but the main idea is to hold an event which contrasts with another held in bendigo in late twenty fifty hundreds protested against plans to build a mosque the ugly images tapped into a perception that australia is and australians are racist australia certainly has a racist he story with a colonial past and an explicit white australia policy on immigration until the
early one nine hundred seventy s. . today in videos like the easy to find online. research is recently surveyed more than ten thousand people in australia they concluded that about a quarter also questions in a way that showed them to be intolerant of other cultures and ethnicities the same survey asked people if they'd experienced discrimination in the last year thirty nine percent of people originally from china and india said they had sixty nine percent of people from c. done and fifty nine percent of indigenous australians in australia at the moment we don't even really want to acknowledge that racism exists institutionally. implicitly and explicitly. but australian society is diverse and is getting more so net migration adds one percent to the population each year one of the highest rates in the world twenty eight percent of australians were born in other countries with the biggest numbers recently coming from india and china surveys suggest about
eighty five percent of australians think multiculturalism has been good for the country and the prime minister regularly calls australia the most successful multicultural society in the world some though say that is a claim too far if you kind of crow about being the most successful it can kind of paper over the fact that there are problems as well bendigo as mosque is going ahead it's difficult start potentially the positive opened up a conversation and that's something that was probably missed in bendigo there for them nationally to an increasing conversation about racism could have a beneficial effect andrew thomas al-jazeera. and just after a while you can of course catch up with many the stories that we're covering by going to our website the address is al-jazeera dot com al-jazeera dot com.
