thank you for joining us egypt's military has conducted air strikes in the sinai region where gunmen have attacked a mosque detonating a bomb and opening fire on worshippers state media say that at least two hundred thirty five people have been killed dozens more injured well the assault took place during friday prayers at a packed mall skin bed egyptian officials say fighters arrived in four off road vehicles of the mosque been shot at fleeing worshippers as well as ambulances egypt has the cleared three days of mourning for the victims well the egyptian military has launched a major campaign in the sinai region after the attack addressing the nation in the last hour egypt's president. promised a brutal response. this these tragic event act of terrorism we make us more robust more stronger was bottle against terrorism we cannot be intimidated i will resolve cannot be dented we will remain more united
when this event army will take revenge and they will restore order and security with an iron fist in the following days. egypt's security forces have been battling eisel fighters in sinai for years resulting in hundreds of deaths at least forty eight soldiers and police officers have been killed just this year one of the worst attacks was in july when twenty three soldiers died after a suicide car bombs tore through two military checkpoints in the last few months there's been a rise in attacks targeting local tribes who work with the armed forces i saw brands them traitors for cooperating with soldiers and police another major target is coptic christians in february dozens of christian families fled the region after a number of killings by suspected i saw fighters but i think how this is a nonresident fellow at the tully or institute for middle east policy he joins us now live via skype from cairo thank you for joining us here on out jazeera in the
past hour we heard from president promising that he would deal with it with an iron fist and then we get reports of air strikes very close to where the attack that took place is this i guess the sort of response we can expect from president c.c. . oh it's certainly predictable that there would be a high profile a military campaign. in response to the attacks of what we saw earlier today which is. i believe the largest death toll from a terrorist attack in his modest rejects. the question that we have that we we've been asking for quite some time is. is this drudgery effective without the concern that many many of us clean myself share is that the kind of scorched earth approach that the government has undertaken. doesn't help really combat long term the threat of terrorism coming from sinai. by. making people's life
inside actually difficult with extremely draconian curfews and a lot of crackdowns and round ups that are often very surgical. there we run the risk of isis finding it easier to recruit people and easier to find safe haven and so the. the the important thing is to look at approaching this with a more sophisticated strategy that balances the need to be decisive at times with the need to to build a coalition that can really deny isis any ability to operate in sinai. i mean it has to be said no one has officially claimed responsibility for this attack just yet but we were reading earlier just how many attacks there have been in sinai that this is really nothing new but what do you make of the differences the specifics about this one the number of dead obviously a massive attack and also the target a mosque. well the number is on precedent as i said even the metric at the tax
side i call you back killed two hundred twenty four people so to thirty five it's actives the largest death toll that it's ever seen from a terrorist attack. the mosque is known as it is known to be a sunni mosque so there's a there's there's a reasonable theory that. to an extent this is art of isis kind of view that cities are radical and so it would for them legitimize them as targets that has to be coupled with. reports that this mosque is one that a number so architrave ten who have been. who are seen as collaborating with the government by isis and as you mentioned earlier in your report we have seen a number of attacks against people inside guy over the view by isis that they're collaborators in the us. and the maze. and it's part of the but this is also part
of a really troubling trend with isis attacks this past year in which high profile attacks on civilian targets are being more and more often started with a lot of attacks on churches and a group of christians traveling to visit a monastery now we have this attack on another place of worship. it's a scary try and it's a dangerous trend and it gives one a lot of concerns about the safety of civilians now in egypt. when the sinai is willing to a target them as well timothy call this long resident fellow the tarring thank you for middle east policy thank you. was staying with the story international condemnation of the attack has been quick the white house has called on the international community to strengthen efforts to defeat terrorist groups u.s. president donald trump also tweeted calling it a horrible and cowardly terrorist attack on the fenceless worshippers israel's hard line education minister neftali bennett also says it's time for international unity
in the war on terror and the british prime minister to resign may says he is appalled by the sickening attack and sends condolences to all those affected. ok let's bring you some breaking news from here in london the seams you're seeing are from central london oxford street now british police are responding to what they're calling a customer incident at the oxford street subway station the station serves a busy shopping district in the heart of the capital the area has been evacuated and there are no reports of casualties at this stage we'll bring you more on that as we get to the attack at oxford circus subway station where history has been made in zimbabwe where the first new president in thirty seven years has been sworn into office in his inauguration speech and a promise to create jobs reimburse farmers whose lands were seized and stamp out

in all countries involved it's a very it's a full loving country and i'm happy because over this happened without violence. was when i got why a former liberal. vita nicknamed the crocodile for his uncompromising approach to politics begins his presidency under pressure with exorbitant government spending crumbling public services and facilities and few jobs for its people zimbabwe needs its economy resuscitated and elections are scheduled for next year. but for now zimbabweans hold their new president aloft revealing in the horror of a second chance. the u.n. is warning the largest fuel importing companies in yemen say they will not be able to supply consumers there by the end of the week the u.s. says praise the saudi led coalition for opening key yemeni ports and their ports in an effort to address the humanitarian crisis saying it's an important first that
the saudi led coalition has also agreed to allow u.n. aid workers to return to the country from saturday but the u.n. says it's still blocking them from bringing in much needed food medicines and the quicker we human rights groups are calling for international agencies to monitor the repatriation over hinge of muslims to me and our as the un's refugee agency says it's still not safe for them to return me and more in bangladesh signed a pact on thursday that will allow those the splays to go home once their paperwork is completed but the advocacy group human rights watch has this misstep as a publicity stunt and says the refugees must be guaranteed security and their homes rebuilt more than six hundred thousand range i fled an army crackdown in iraq and stayed over the past three months. but has more now from cox is bizarre. there are of course a major issues with respect to the implementation of this agreement that has been made between bangladesh and men with respect to the repatriation of bringing the
refugees chief of which of course is the question of exactly where many of these people go back to their villages have been destroyed burns to the ground hundreds of thousands of them across this border and they brought literally nothing with them including any form of identification and myanmar is insisting that an identification process must start that says that this agreement is loosely based on one that was put together ninety ninety two when there was a similar outbreak of violence in one thousand nine hundred two they were going to refugees that came they had white cards now these white cards were proof of residency not citizenship myanmar government now saying that if the regime the cuties here now have proof that they once had one of those white cards then they would take to eventually be allowed to return and they also say that there is going to be a system put together. papers disseminated within the refugee camps where people
can register listing their former addresses their family members but of course is the issue of literally thousands of people there who are missing family members many of them are children so it's very difficult to get solid identification of these people. still to come on the program we'll bring you the latest on that security alert at oxford circus here in london plus south african olympian oscar pistorius has his prison sentence more than doubled from six to thirteen years and cambodia's opposition groups promise not to give up their fight after the supreme court dissolved the main opposition party last week.

ships of. high technology on the water rescue vessels out in the south atlantic they've been searching pretty much the all. already lost contact with the submarine the a r a a sound one on the fifteenth of november but they now think that the submarine is at the bottom of the sea anything from two hundred meters or below the sea level to several thousand perhaps so they hope to find a submarine ready to answer some of the questions but the families of those forty four crew members many of them left this base yesterday very angry with the way the operation the search operation is being conducted with the information that came their way many of them have said they've been told that the crew members are dead and they're not going to see them again but they like the rest of argentina are asking for answers as to what happened as to why the information took so long to come to light the way it came to light and also the vessel itself the sunk one it was built in one nine hundred eighty three commissioned in one thousand nine

this what seems to many to be obsolete equipment although the storage you said is not obsolete it's still functional. and also really just the way the search operation is being carried out whose hopes were raised there was talk of a sound of sonic waves being found in the south atlantic which then turned so nothing families were kept here without being given much information they say the really many questions about of the future role of the armed forces of the navy in particular how it should be funded and what it should be funded with. with the latest there from argentina thank you it's give you an update now on the breaking news here in london london police are advising in oxford street to move inside buildings is they investigate a security alert at oxford circus underground station the met police have issued
