9:00 pm
al jazeera where ever you are. this is.
9:01 pm
and this is the news hour live from london coming up in the next sixty minutes. jubilation across our honoree fountains of people flood the streets of the capital calling for robert mugabe to step down lebanon's prime minister saad hariri meets the french president in paris and confirms he will return to lebanon on wednesday. and supplies trickle into yemen and saudi arabia eases its blockade but the u.n. says more must become. critical twenty seventeen on a sad note for the swiss he is eliminated from the a.t.p. finals by devon in the semifinals that more later when program.
9:02 pm
is involved way where euphoric seniors that just days ago would have been unheard of playing out on the streets of the capital harare tens of thousands of people have rallied to demand the resignation of president. there always took place with the blessing of the military which on one say place the country's ninety three year old leader on the house arrest but they were actually called by the influential war veterans association. here. is live for us in harare cairo the demonstrations of calm down now but very much the message on the street was we think he should go and we believe this is a new beginning for the country. yes it was an extraordinary day and more developments keep happening on sundays and it hit me and was have a meeting in. talk about firing president robert mugabe from the posse they also
9:03 pm
talk about firing grayson that's his wife as the head of the women's they want to remove her from that post so that's going to happen as around ten a.m. local time in terms of the mood on the streets against the the but the march is over but it was a day that many people thought they would never ever ever see that you had the women children you had war veterans you had opposition supporters you had members of the routings on if your party all coming together united until one theme and that is president mugabe must go it was peaceful there was no nothing was damaged they just destroyed some posters with mugabe space others out of your party headquarters but you still soldiers posing with people telling them come up on top of vehicles come up take a selfie with us keep us in the side and social media it was a day that many zimbabweans really never thought would have happened now it has it is a sign that change is coming and all eyes on that sunday meeting where the posse will
9:04 pm
just decide the fate of them. and do they believe that it's possible that he can oust struck a i'm running to what happens if it exists heels in and refuses to go. if you refuse us to we have threats from some army officials that they will find a way to make him go the war veterans that's there they won't tolerate him not stepping down they think it is not an option he has to go at some point in time the important thing up by the meeting on sunday is what happens there if they decide to manage prism of god is exit if you could maybe see some delegates is on if you're pushing for them to go to. conference with a new agenda and may be that agenda once we know once you know the outcome of the meeting. but anything can happen it
9:05 pm
could happen someday it could be stalled a bit until it is in the conference which is a thank you that's harmless also with the very latest from harare well we're joined now by no stretch here he's an associate fellow of the africa program chatham house here in london and he's also president of the britain zimbabwe society thank you very much for coming in on quite an extraordinary day in zimbabwe and i suppose i should start with that question i just asked her the result is pressure for the president to step down but so far he's saying i'm not going anywhere what happens next if you carries on digging his heels it. well you know as. you're saying the pressure is enormous i mean there's really no reverse gear on this and. it's just how it's going to be managed one hopes that it will be resolved peacefully but there are number of options as the meeting on sunday parliament could come in and do a vote of no confidence. is going to be meeting next week so it's really an hour just
9:06 pm
that when he goes rather than if he goes he's not going to manage this others are managing there was that call to jacob zuma obviously across to south africa who was checking are you ok and he said yes i'm fine i'm under house arrest how does that play and how does south africa now play into how he thinks his future might well work out well south africans about to have a long historic relationship and of course all over almost over the past twenty years africa has been involved there is a lot of pressure within from zimbabweans to south africa and to sadek that you know cedric and i can't delay too much on this this has to be resolved very quickly because because what's happening is a national convergence as we saw in harare but it's a fragile moment and sadoc. to have to be in sync with what the people are saying
9:07 pm
and that is calling for a fairly rapid exit and on that there is always outpouring how was talked about the field feeling good on the streets people saying this is a new beginning is it a new beginning or could it end up being more of the same if they put somebody like vice president who was pushed out if he comes in is he going to make for a better zimbabwe for those people out on the streets today. you know i mean i was i was just there a few days ago what people are really the number one thing people are talking about is the economy people are pragmatic. you know we know that it's not going to be a perfect transition we know that the next government is not going to be a perfect government but people want the economy to be sort of jobs money food on the table and especially cash because there's no cash so that is the government will be the next government's top priority and they have to deal with that i want to people like moment the opposition leader we're not hearing anything over the
9:08 pm
last week from what's going on there you would think he would be the one out on the streets trying to garner some support at least a sense of an opposition while i think the opposition is being fairly strategic on this because you know this is a military guided transition and there's so many variables so in a sense i think the opposition are being strategic and taking a rather low key and really this is being led by the people as we see in iraq but one hopes that the next government will be an inclusive government and they will be room for position as well strawberry time thank you very much for coming in to talk to us thank you. lebanon's prime minister saad hariri has confirmed hillary turn to beirut by wednesday and says he'll hold talks with president to michel ari made the statement in paris where he's met the french president. from paris in the latest twist in this political crisis saad hariri arrived at paris's look airport
9:09 pm
at dawn and headed to his apartment in the french capital it was the first time the lebanese prime minister had been seen in public since his sudden resignation in riyadh two weeks ago later he met the french president emanuel marcotte at the elysee palace and said he would return to beirut. with regards to the political situation i will be in beirut in the next few days to take part in the celebration of our independence and all express opinions on all subjects once i've met president. hariri was joined by his wife and eldest son but his other two children were left behind in riyadh fueling speculation about why that was at least the sources said only that it had been the hariri family's personal choice. macro invited to really he said not to offer exile but listen act of friendship the fact that some of her riri was here at the elise is being seen by
9:10 pm
those in france as something of a diplomatic success for him at all might call it is the french president's mediation attempts over the past two weeks that have seen hariri finally leave riyadh. this is certainly a diplomatic success for a manual mark cross at the start of the lebanese crisis no one was very convinced that he'd be able to get results but he succeeded in getting hariri out of saudi arabia and hopefully back to lebanon soon for that it's a personal achievement for macro he's managed to re-insert france into the middle east and diplomatic arena. many people in lebanon say they're fed up with what they regard as foreign meddling in their affairs if hariri does make it back to beirut on wednesday he'll be there is the country celebrates his independence with a public holiday that would be a symbolic moment that would be lost on no one natasha butler al jazeera paris in black is a visiting senior fellow at the london school of economics and middle east center
9:11 pm
and he joins me live in the studio where there saad hariri was on house arrest or not the big question everybody's been asking in riyadh and it's very clear that the saudis are taking very much of an interest in what's going on in lebanon and in fact an active role if you like. absolutely i mean the fascinating thing is he's going to go back for the independence day celebrations next week on wednesday i think what's he going to do then will be delivering a message from the saudis will he say something privately or publicly about the road to hizbullah which is what the saudis really dislike about lebanon will he insists that he still wants to resign so there are some quite big questions yet to be answered he's obviously going to go the wife i guess he wouldn't have said so but it is really intriguing we're going to see another chapter in this very mysterious story within quite a short space of time and this is a visit she had to paris to see the french president as
9:12 pm
a manual macro and i see improved situation as ease attentions always even muddied the waters for so i think because being helpful i mean he certainly gave her really some way to go neutral but friendly territory making the point about not wanting lebanon to become a source of new tension france of course has an important historic relationship with lebanon dating back many years sadhu his father was assassinated was very close to jacques chirac so there's a sort of lucas there if you like for this and vicious french president is a time of considerable disarray internationally with president trump and breaks it in britain well you could argue and i suppose the other question we have to ask is what's hezbollah's reaction going to be and indeed there was also all sorts of talk the lebanese prime minister was going to say he would didn't want to allow hezbollah to be part of a future government or any part of that how will that now fits in when he pops back
9:13 pm
on one's world i mean. has in the strength of his brother leader has been pretty firm from the start when this story unfolded he said that hariri was being held hostage by the sundays the reaction in lebanon of course has been one of great solidarity with the prime minister. crossed sectarian lines so again we'll have to see what unfolds when hariri returns to beirut how long will he stay what will you say what will he do privately what will he do publicly but i think the idea of a confrontation with hizbollah is is unlikely frankly whatever the saudis want the lebanese reality is very much against something like that happening i just ask you to stay with us because we want to take a closer look at saudi arabia and it's been the focus of a meeting of former diplomats and middle east analysts here in london saudi arabia's add to the throne has been making bold political moves which many consider to be unprecedented a recent report says saudi arabia is demanding cash for the
9:14 pm
release of dozens of high profile citizens it's arrested earlier this month on charges of corruption it includes the country's richest man prince we'd been tell our also reports many of those detained have been tortured including the son of the late king abdullah prince me ten saudis large royal family traditionally share power however these latest moves are being seen as a power grab by the new crown prince mohammed bin salma and the thirty two year old influence grows he faces challenges in neighboring yemen where the u.n. has warned that unless saudi arabia halts its blockade millions of people could die of hunger last june saudi arabia the u.a.e. and egypt cut ties with cattle and imposed a land sea and air blockade setting off an unprecedented crisis in the gulf region well as i said the beginning of that that long bit of information there is this
9:15 pm
conference going on in london at the moment with diplomats of various interested people who is that like conference fund and what do you think the reason is that they're sitting around the table talking about this is it because they're worried that the tensions with saudi underwhelm are going to spill over over here you know what's amazing. a moment is saudi arabia an important country but into recently it never generated much in the way of news no virtually a day doesn't go by without some headline grabbing story it is quite extraordinary and this really comes down to the the promotion of king solomon son mohammad been some thirty two appointed crown prince a few months ago and he was in the headlines before because he was appointed defense minister and launched the saudi campaign in yemen a couple of years ago now but since he became crown prince he's really he just hasn't stopped making news economic reform social changes and no in recent weeks in
9:16 pm
particular this sense of a heightened confrontation with iran which is of course the background of the hariri story of course the links that saudi arabia has with the why do worlds particularly the west has details whether it comes to business link's huge company is that there are a sort of groups involved in you can't really pull lots of parts to then how the west does or doesn't react to what's going on and obviously things like human rights things that what's going on in yemen at the moment there's been quite a muffled response by a lot of the west well i mean western governments the united states britain and france are all complicit to one degree or another in supplying weapons to the saudi government they've been doing so for many many years it's an important part of their relationships it's become more embarrassing and more exposed because of the war in yemen which actually is now attracting significant international attention because of the scale of the humanitarian crisis we've all seen the terrible
9:17 pm
pictures of starving children and reports of cholera and so on and so forth saudi arabia's a really important country it's very assertive at the moment politically economically militarily in yemen and this is significant changes that are underfoot so people who know about it and care about it don't worry about it. sitting around scratching their heads trying to work out what is really happening is it just all about a consolidation of power by mohamed been sort of mine is he just trying to eliminate rivals or is there something genuine about this drive against corruption that's certainly popular with young people in saudi arabia is there any sign that the political structure of your a group so not yet feel free to ask more questions than we've answered but thanks very much for your thoughts ian black much more to come here on the al-jazeera news hour. chileans head to the polls on sunday four years after being elected we take stock of the impact that student
9:18 pm
leaders have had and chilling on politics. for artists one hopes being moved piece by piece we're in new york to find out why. i'm top gun assaf now i have a blast in the english premier league's north london dobby with peter and support. the trumpet ministration has announced it will not renew operating permission for palestine's diplomatic office in washington a u.s. state department official has cited statements that palestinian leaders have made about the international criminal court oust the reason the palestinians say they will suspend all communications with the u.s. if it's office and shuttle tom ackerman joins us live from washington d.c. so what kind of condition is would be that mission be shut down because of.
9:19 pm
well under two thousand and fifteen a law that was signed in the previous administration by president obama the palestinian liberation office organization office in washington which has been opened for more than twenty years would be closed unless the palestinians dropped any efforts to pursue their claims against israel in the international criminal court or if they failed to pursue what was described as serious and meaningful direct negotiations with the israelis so the notification by the state department appears to be following that law that mandate but there is an out the president would have ninety days to decide whether in fact the palestinians were pursuing direct meaningful negotiations and in that case he could waive this kind of closure so right now the palestinians are saying that the ball is in the u.s.
9:20 pm
court and they claim that the u.s. is being unfair because while the israelis are evicting palestinians from palestinian land on the occupied west bank they are not getting the same kind of critical examination of course which of course is not something something that is subject to u.s. law so tom how does this all fits into the u.s. efforts to broker a peace process between the two. well it comes a very awkward time at a time where the administration at its chief negotiator jared kushner the president's brother in law and his point man. jason green blatt has been shuttling between ramallah and jerusalem to try to work out what they are calling and what they've been advertising as a blueprint for a concrete plan that they would be unveiling early in the next year the threat of
9:21 pm
disrupting all these negotiations even the preliminary negotiations seems to be a serious one so the question here is is this a mixed message on the part of the administration will they back off on the actual threat to close the p.l.o. office here or whether this is just a pressure moved trying to gain leverage here right now we don't really have a good estimate one point we should mention is that the postman for the white house today. added this clause saying that this measure of closing the p.l.o. mission should in no way be seen as a signal the u.s. is backing off the efforts to pursue some kind of resumption of negotiations thank you tom tom i commend the line and d.c. thousands of people trying to cross the border from gaza into egypt after the rafa
9:22 pm
border crossing was open temporarily the crossing has been sailed since all this but his due to open permanently under a reconciliation deal brokered by egypt welcome went as lot from amala. hundreds of people in gaza boarded buses and made their way to the rafa crossing its last brief reopening about three months ago and aside from similar brief openings it's been closed most of the time for the last ten years because of the blockade of gaza by israel in egypt right now about twenty five thousand people in gaza registered waiting to cross to egypt and beyond that only a fraction of that number will get through in this temporary opening which is meant to last three days so priority is being given to people with the most urgent reasons to travel such as those seeking medical treatment. they haste and i've we've registered to travel here in four months ago it was a lot of suffering it's good so far today there facilitating it.
9:23 pm
i've had a booking to go to turkey for more than three months and now thank god i'll be able to go. to borders meant to be open permanently soon as part of the reconciliation agreement between palestine's two main political parties fatter and hamas is being brokered by egypt without a permanent opening do you last week has been delayed seems not everything's yet in place for your thoughts on the egyptian side all the palestinian authority on the gaza side of the border or for hamas who still control the interior of gaza according to a two thousand and five agreement monitors from the european union are meant to be at the border they left in two thousand and seven and they're not yet back in place palestinian authority officials say over the three days they're hoping to get two thousand five hundred people across that means the many more thousands who are registered will still be stuck in gaza waiting and hoping for that permanent reopening to come soon. al-jazeera continues to demand the release of its

journalist would a sane he's been in an egyptian prison for almost eleven months and sane is accused of broadcasting false news to spread chaos which he and al-jazeera strongly deny is repeatedly complained of mistreatment in jail as saying was arrested on december the twentieth while visiting family aid has started to trickle into yemen almost two weeks after the saudi led coalition closed land air and sea borders vital supplies are being allowed into ports in government controlled areas but the united nations says only a complete lifting of the blockade will stop what could be the worst famine in decades mariana honda reports. these machines are slowly cleaning this man's blood and keeping him alive a saudi led coalition is strike left him without any obvious injuries but the trauma and the health problems came soon after.
9:25 pm
it all started when my husband lost his eyesight after a few days his health continued to deteriorate when we had him examined and found his kidneys had failed. he needs kidney dialysis three times a week but at this hospital in the who see controlled capital of summer patients are lucky to get even one treatment resources are dwindling food and fuel prices are soaring so not as within the estimated sixty percent of human that's under control and did some to see. suffering here we've been denied delivery of medicine as we call on the world to look with mercy on the yemeni people and put an end to our history please start by opening the closed borders and deliver medical supplies. for twelve days yemen has been all that cut off from the outside world a blockade imposed after humans who see rebels fired a ballistic missile deep into saudi arabia the blockade was designed to choke the
9:26 pm
alleged flow of weapons to who the rebels from iran but it's increased the hardship for millions of human knees a majority of whom need some sort of assistance the saudi led coalition says aid can get in through what it describes as liberated ports it's partially open to the government controlled port of aden in the south but none of the points of entry are in areas under hoofy control that includes the airport in the capital sanaa and to the port of who data through which the bulk of all aid is delivered we're being covering the war in yemen for two and a half years now but here's an idea of the impact from just the last twelve days seven million people were already on the. famine without any kind of aid getting in the u.n. says that number will rise past ten million the cost of the saudi led blockade is being measured not in cash but in the number of lives lost one hundred fifty thousand of them that's how many mel norris children the u.n.
9:27 pm
says could die within the coming months if the blockade isn't lifted completely but . the u.n. says vital supplies will run out in yemen within the next few weeks the blockade is a calculated move by the sounded coalition a strategy that needs time to take effect time that for the people of yemen as fast running out. al jazeera you're watching the news hour here on al-jazeera still ahead we'll have the latest on the hunt for missing arjan time submarine forty four people on board hundred years since america's most famous children's home was established we look at the changing face of care. and for lebron james lived up to his nickname of the king in the n.b.a. we'll have more in.

and it's only in the far north we've got the cloud in the rain at the moment that system is going to stick around as we head through the day on sunday is breaking up a little bit so patchy showers across there with some heavy rain across the coast of tanzania and the northern coast of mozambique further south a fine forcing cape town all maximum getting to two twenty . sun blessed beaches breathtaking scenery but there's another reason that draws people to cyprus it's not always easy for mixed faith couples to marry in the middle east and that's why the mediterranean island has become an ideal destination for couples and love to have a civil marriage al-jazeera world looks at what happens when romance cuts across religious lines cyprus island a forbidden love at this time on al-jazeera. al-jazeera is there with us doing great but the schools are that to see what happens next which is on. fire by the

9:31 pm
resign that means prime minister saad hariri says he'll return to beirut by wednesday more than two weeks after announcing his resignation while on a trip to saudi arabia egypt has reopened its border with gaza for three days to allow humanitarian cases into the country using the rafa crossing. on sunday lands will vote for a new president leading the first round of polls is full well president i'm busy. sebastian pinera but politicians may have a voter backlash on their hands after a series of corruption scandals a lot in america and it's a lucy and human is lying for as in the chilean town of palma and lucy are just mentioning there about corruption do the candidates who appear at least to be clear you know they're the ones who are going to do the better. surprisingly that is not the case in fact this is a very very unusual election indeed here in palm idea where people live mainly from
9:32 pm
making and selling things made out of clay there's very very little enthusiasm for this election as in the rest of the country really because good chileans have lost their confidence in all of their politicians for the first time since chile return to democracy in one nine hundred ninety the center left coalition is split it's fielding four candidates and the former presidents have a stamp in yet who has been under question under scrutiny rather for allegations that he too has been involved in corruption is leading in the polls it's very hard to explain that but one interesting part of this of this election given that there is a new electoral reform is that there is a new coalition led mainly by former student leaders who are trying at least to change the status quo. six years ago the university students in chile captured the world's imagination by undertaking a peaceful revolt proofread quality education for all. the british newspaper the guardian named communist party student leader come eleven the person of the year
9:33 pm
and the most glamorous revolutionary since che guevara. georgia jackson became a poster boy for education reform but unsatisfied with progress four of the student leaders ran for congress and won promising to hold chilean politicians accountable from within the system. four years later congressman george or jackson concedes it's been harder than he did expected there's no satisfaction because. the expectations are too high so. i feel that the people here in chile looses hope in politics to change their lives. jackson is running for reelection but this time as part of the new left wing coalition dissatisfied with the pace of change under the current center left government former communist student leaders come you have are you whole and carol guardiola who are also running again have been
9:34 pm
criticized for not pushing hard enough. at the university of chile these architecture students lament that their former leaders didn't achieve their promised goal one hundred percent free education. they felt the career presenters from a higher position but they don't listen to us anymore we haven't seen. jackson or burridge on the streets protesting with us. we try every very very very with every action that we may jackson argues they need more time here and many other former student leaders are pinning their hopes on the new broad front coalition which is loosely inspired. spain's leftist or their most party and even bernie sanders in the united states for a coalition that was just formed in january it's doing surprisingly well in the polls particularly amongst the disgruntled you. which is why jackson continues to
9:35 pm
insist that the only way to push political limits is from within as he runs for congress again. but the problem so is that perhaps one of the biggest challenges in this whole election is just getting people to go out and vote one of the most recent polls suggests that at least fifty five percent of jillian's well actually abstain which does not bode well for this country's democratic system so. when they're bringing us the very latest on that election the mayor of caracas has arrived in madrid after escaping house arrest in venezuela antonio ledesma is a vocal opponent of venezuelan president nicolas maduro he'd been confined to his home since twenty fifteen challenge for supporting an attempt to crew but he denies the sixty three year old crossed the border into colombia and then flew to spain the desk there says he'll work from exile to free political prisoners and organize
