this is al-jazeera. hello everyone i'm felicity ball on the wall welcome to this new life from london coming up in the next sixty minutes egypt's president files revenge in sinai off to gunmen attack a crowded mall skilling two hundred thirty five people. everson min agogo a promises to fix zimbabwe's crippled economy as he's sworn in as president. just beats me drop me over the. ground the u.n. says it's shocking and inexcusable police in papua new guinea clear the remaining refugees from an australian rob chris. and sport the tennis season isn't quite over for some of the biggest stars of the men's game the
davis cup final is underway between belgium and france at all levels at one zero. we begin in egypt where the military has launched a campaign in sinai off to two hundred thirty five people were killed in an attack limo sq president. had promised to respond with brutal force a bomb was detonated in the mall scan the attackers then followed as they fled the attack and that is the worst ever in the sinai region reports. the bomb and gun attack happened during friday prayers at the other older mosque in egypt's northern sinai peninsula local sources say the attackers planted explosives and then opened fire on a worshipers while the. sermon was underway. or. looks like it was.
not really clear. yet. they have turned into the. night. president either but that has c.c. convened an emergency meeting of security officials has and had this this tragic event act of terrorism will make us more robust more a strong of a battle against terrorism we cannot be intimidated i will result cannot be dented we will remain more united hello we need to bend army will take revenge and they will restore order and security with an iron fist in the following day. egyptian forces have for years battled armed groups in the country's rugged and remote sinai
peninsula attacks on security forces have been frequent like this car bomb explosion the targeted a police station in a largish in two thousand and fifteen. fighting between isis forces there for years now. and. as shock sets in and an investigation begins the egyptian government has declared three days of mourning mohammed. well 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 he work with the armed forces bronze them traitorous for cooperating with soldiers and police and other major topic target is
coptic christians in february dozens of christian families fled the region after a number of killings by suspected eisel fighters. let's speak now to dalia for me who's an associate professor of political science at long island university and she joins us live now from new york thanks for being with us on this news so there have been very sex the nations put forward as to why this particular mosque might have been targeted there was a suit female school and people in that area belong to a particular tribe that has cooperated with the egyptian military what are your thoughts so yes there is the argument out there that's being circulated that this is in fact a sufi mosque and that there is ideological reasons. but i think there's more to the story than that and it's part of the second part of your question of that this belong to a family or tribe that was seen as cooperating with the c.c. regime. terrorist organizations such as isis or whether it's the
isis officer that is in egypt or i'm sorry by to mock this have tried to get strategically attacked those that are seen as in collusion with the state not just the security apparatus not just the police and the military but now they are attacking individuals who are seen to be those cooperating with the state and so we're seeing happening today is by virtue of attacking a mosque a shrine much like the attacks of the coptic church these terrorist groups and of course we they have yet to clean responsibility for them seem to be attacking anyone who is in collusion with the state and so that is leading to a new strategic behavior within this terrorist group which is they will actually attack all civilians and to attack a mosque at the height of a congregants coming together on a friday means that anyone all civilian populations now are part of the game for
this terrorist group. i mean attacks of course have been happening in sinai for years now they're all various own groups operating in the region why is it that the egyptian government does struggle to defeat these armed groups. so these armed groups for example and saw this and with a sign i have garnered more strength in this day since two thousand and three military coup that removed egypt's first democratically elected leader and historically when the regime would crack down on for example between two thousand and four and two thousand and six attacks on tourists it would lead to mass arrests torture and no trials and so you saw the beginning of fomenting of a cycle of violence of state repression targeting these groups through arbitrary arrests leading to them fomenting a cycle of violence and so it's being clear to become clear today is the state can
no longer provide security every time there is an attack the president comes on t.v. and says we were spawn with a heavy hand and we will secure egypt and the situation gets worse and just as he responded today we are already seeing the beginnings of an aerial bombardment on the area which is not really clear that it's actually targeting those that cause this because they have yet to claim responsibility but it's also leading to a level of uncertainty in society that both the state and terrorist groups are formant in fear in society well that was going to be my next question we know that some sort of military operation is underway it's not absolutely clear waltz is happening in sinai unless you know that we do right now but what does this all mean for the ordinary people in sinai who must now be particularly in that area in the north must be living in fear pretty much was hauling so not only are they living in fear and uncertainty but this is also one of the
most underdeveloped places in egypt and so the what the government needs to do is rethink its counterterrorism strategy and really address the core issues that lead for terrorist groups to come into areas like this especially when for example isis is being driven out of iraq in syria today we don't want to see egypt be the new site for fomenting of terrorism. really good to get your perspective that's dalia for me joining us there new york appreciate your time thank you. now is a bold ways new president is promising drastic change for the country in his inauguration speech emerson and god to help create jobs reimburse farmers whose lands were seized and stamp out corruption for me to miller was at the ceremony in harare. a new and holding democracy is how emerson went on god was describes his ascent to power even if it took military intervention to end robert mugabe's presidency tens of thousands of zimbabweans waited for hours to watchman on guard
was swearing into office and inauguration meant to cement the veneer of a politically driven solution from within the ruling zanu p.f. party once again not priors. we can do in the present and huge or to give our nation a different positive. when a god was promised to implement economic reforms that would uplift the lives of millions of zimbabweans left jobless in a battered economy and work toward stimulating local industries as well as compensate the white farmers for the land they lost under previous policies has also vowed to fight corruption tall order given the corruption allegations faced by many members of his ruling party often from politicians we've learned that there's a gulf between what they say and what they actually do this in government actually is coming from from the same party that elites know from his people two million
jobs it really did in those years of need to be created when our god why enjoys from military backing from the same army that in two thousand and eight intervened in elections lost by mccarthy ensuring he stayed in power one of the major things that we were going to know is that we are faced with an election in three d. what happens if this new president loses that election would the military be able to hold their losses of doing the barracks and say we respect the will of the people when gaga has promised free and fair elections next year he still has u.s. sanctions hanging over his head from his time as serving the mcgarvie regime for what it called acts to undermine democracy but when i got worse as now is the time to reengage with the west for people here president a man on guard was certainly made all the right noises talking directly about the needs of everyday zimbabweans has moved away from traditional political issues instead addressing people's concerns about his presidency but the worry is that
zimbabweans could one day face a crisis of expectation with apparently well intentioned economic and political plans unlikely to work overnight from either miller al-jazeera harare zimbabwe or. well emerson is known as the crocodile among zimbabweans an animal famed of course and feared for its stealth and ruthlessness the seventy five year old served mcgarvie loyally for decades they fought together in zimbabwe's independence struggle and he became the former president's main enforcer when god was security minister in one thousand nine hundred eighty three when an estimated twenty thousand people were killed in a brutal crackdown on the garveys opponents in the country's east he denies being responsible for the atrocities when god is thought to have amassed a considerable fortune he was named in a un investigation into exploitation of mineral resources in democratic republic of congo and led the charge to make harare a diamond trading hub. and he remains under u.s.
sanctions there his alleged role in another crackdown this time in the two thousand and eight presidential election this prevents him from traveling to america or indeed holding bank accounts there. well i was there is how tough has been speaking to people in harare about the hopes of the country under the new president. everyone you talk to here says they expected robert mugabe to die in office not resign after the military intervened they had it been said every day on state t.v. they started to believe it. but now mugabe's former right hand man ima said when i got why isn't always a new president after decades of economic stagnation high unemployment and political repression people have high expectations when we grew up and going to school in the ninety's we had everything i mean agriculture to drive down the roads down the highways. to back. everything happening he went to the industrial areas
there was smoke coming out now when you go it's dilapidated there's nothing going on there so we want to see that again just a very vibrant. oh when i got close allies say they are confident the rulings on a party will work with opposition parties and the white community we have been reaching out to the opposition with absolute confidence that an admission is more than general onan on an even keel and they are going to be. our base is also reaching out to the world community they are then added to the modern economy in new york times some of them feel marginalized we want to observe that they belong to this country that's good news to those who feel the policies hurt the country economically many people here and in the age of forty innocent and why the president is saying all the right things will be jobs life will improve for the poor people of course is optimistic you know change if it happens will take some
time no one knows how long it'll take for the economy to recover some people say it's too late for them they believe they'll always be poor but they hope their children will have a better future i'm good four years old i was born three years after independence but. bad for making. people are frustrated and impatient they say they are tired of being called a nation of vendors president has made a lot of promises he needs to manage expectations and deliver on some of those promises to convince him that it's no longer business as usual had an al-jazeera. there's much more still to come here on the al-jazeera news including argentina's navy continues its hunt for a missing submarine carrying forty four crew members the president says it will be found within days. why thousands of american truckers are paying the price for the
black friday sales. and the battle to be crowned champions of asia for details later. first the u.n. says the forcible removal of refugees from a prison camp silent is shocking and inexcusable papa new guinea police cleared the remaining three hundred twenty eight men from the former australian on friday from on a silent al jazeera is under thomas reports. on first day about fifty men were removed on friday the remaining three hundred twenty eight were evicted in some cases by force mobile phone footage shot by refugees appears to show police and papua new guinea and immigration officers hitting them with metal bars buses took the men to the new accommodation in the nearby town accommodation australia's government says
is ready for refugees say has no power security guards won't let cameras near the facility. the refugees can come out and some showed us the injuries they say they sustained in the victualling the poison in my version of off from you again it just me to me and drove me over the. ground and it's i mean all of my body australia's immigration minister said on friday he knew of only three very minor injuries we saw more. i was inside the detention center and i was beaten with a wooden iron bars. two years ago al jazeera filmed on man a silent when almost all the refugees were still locked up the closest we got to an interview with one then was over the phone while sitting near their prison in a boat we argue. the mouse. that refugee is now out of that prison but does not feel free. when you are free you are free living you can have
a job you cannot you know make you can have a life i am still here for years and i have. the same situation some refugees say they fear being attacked in the local town some have been but the main reason they refused to leave the prison was as a protest to draw attention to australia's mistreatment of them australia's prime minister in his country's capital canberra said he was glad the protest was over complying with the lawful directions of the pay injury authorities and moving to the alternative facilities available to them and that as a short. that is precisely what you should do if you're in a foreign country you should comply with the laws of that other country for refugees papua new guinea could be home for many years to come the absolute closure of the refugee prison and the eviction of all the remaining men inside won't make
much practical difference to the refugees lives or their futures but for australia's government this is a significant moment it's the clearest sign yet that they are transferring responsibility for those refugees from canberra to pack when you get in and al jazeera on man a silent in papua new guinea. or jarrett mckenna is an australian pastor and justice activist who's just returned from a silent he says he's received messages from men describing their old deal. literally hiding under titles and in the toilets as the military and local police moved in to violently remove them by force now they feel that their small window or a current where they can dream of freedom has closed again the reality of the new camps is that they're not finished we visited there and we saw locals actually blocking roads stopping the new camp from going ahead this is a town which only has six thousand people which other proposals to six hundred of
these people needing safety to go to which puts unbelievable pressure astrologer of course it is one of the wealthiest nations in this part of the world and yet we're leaving having an apple neighbors to the north coursing them to take our responsibility of people seeking safety and even if we came to a finish which they're not even if they're in a soap location which they're not the reality is that what it means that he's made is that of finding a site like this not necessarily in australia but anywhere where they can have a future and find freedom is again shouted because they're locked into this reality where strangely it has made them invisible out of sight and out of mind and they again think they're about to be forgotten by the world also seen as president but it's here machree says he expects such teams to find his navy's missing submarine within days but he didn't specify whether the navy expected to find survivors as the someone went missing nine days ago off the coast of southern argentina with
forty four crewmembers on board it can only remain submerged the seven days on your shrine that is at the naval base model plata the submarine settled destination. even the news that there was an explosion shortly after the argentina thought he'd lost contact with the submarine on the fifteenth of november came about in a very roundabout way through asia in austria which monitors nuclear explosions it was not a nuclear explosion but they monitor the explosion pass the information on to the argentine ambassador in vienna who then relayed it to the authorities here that news of them broke into the families of the crew on thursday they were extremely angry about the way the news came about about the whole handling of the situation and it's now thought that if there indeed was an explosion onboard there's very very little chance of the forty four crew members having survived the search and rescue operation continues there are something like ten countries involved in the
argentine authority is with the aircraft which ships with very sophisticated underwater rescue vessels trying to reach the submarine wherever that may be it's still not clear how deep it may be it was sailing at about two hundred meters below sea level but the area it was sailing in was very close to the continental shelf and it was it was moving to the east of that the sea there goes to a depth of something like three thousand meters if the if the submarine is indeed there there be very little chance of reaching it or retrieving the wreckage south africa's supreme court has more than doubled oscar pistorius is murder sentence after signing the original ruling shockingly. a south african gold medal winning a paralympian will serve thirteen years and five months up from six years and as it was twenty pages in pretoria. it only took a moment for the supreme court of appeal to deliver its ruling. sentenced to

millions of eager shoppers have been trying to grab the best bargains the crowds at actual shops appear to be down when taylor say the main shopping action has in fact shifted online. or many of those bargains are cheap imports transported to the warehouses of major firms by an army of truckers but as jacob reports from one of california's busiest ports the drivers are complaining of exploitation. freedom drew paul bomber to trucking over ride me in the throat and i love. then to stay closer to home he became a poor trucker paid by the look he did so well he wound up leasing first one truck from his employers and then a second. family with everything that has to be moved in the united states via cargo container has to be moved from poor to warehouse via trucks like these.
several lawsuits now accuse the companies that dispatch those trucks on behalf of some of america's best known retailers of cheating drivers treating them as contractors with almost no labor rights withholding overtime pay and expenses and trapping them in endless leases according to attorneys representing the drivers we have twenty four companies we. there are now. why stop this one. for boehner the lease is where he sends things weren't right when i got down to start asking questions about how much longer i have to pay to truck so asked when everything went bad once you get behind us like you're working for free and your feeling is that they intentionally withheld work for you but what you have is definitely they definitely did it because. you know i would want to hear time about. truckers seeking lost wages go to the office of california labor commissioner julie sue. who has brought more than forty six million dollars in
judgments against port trucking companies but she says that enforcement is difficult and sometimes impossible. industries which is where the chronic under capitalization and chronic wage theft we often see that when workers come forward and they follow wage claim and they win their wage claim that the employer simply close down go out of business change their name start. name and that makes it much harder for us to actually get the money that his own. is one of the lucky ones. he got out and he managed to buy his own truck. he says the experience taught him a terrible lesson they don't care about us as people you know we're we weren't humans we were just somebody to get the job done. affordable imports make it possible for americans to buy almost anything that i want to buy gas but truckers are paying

a who praised the talks as useful syrian opposition groups have agreed to form a fifty member delegation to attend next week's u.n. sponsored talks during a two day conference in riyadh they were new their demand that syrian president bashar al assad should step down assad's resignation will not be a precondition for negotiations a salvage of a cent this update from the turkish city of gas near the syrian border. after two long days of deliberations between various syrian groups which included the moscow and the cairo platforms the syrian negotiations committee that has been formed now has agreed to code to geneva talks on a united platform they say they've agreed that there should be a future syria without president bashar al assad and his clique they also say that there should be representation of women the united nations should put serious efforts into uniting all sides and bringing all sides on to the negotiating table
and the violence must come to an end in a late night news conference one of the representatives off this new committee announced these details saying that they are now united and they can go to geneva with one voice if the fuck no. we have agreed with a group of the components who are here in riyadh in addition to cairo and moscow platforms to form one united delegation to participate in the direct geneva talks in a few days. at least on the surface they have bridged these divides wish it were the divisions among them that is the question of president bashar al assad in the future of the transitional government and in a future syria according to the syrian opposition they have now agreed that bashar al assad cannot be part of the transitional stage but that was the dividing factor between them and at least the moscow platform which wants to see them going to the negotiations without any preconditions and it considers that asking for bashar al assad not being part of the transitional government is a precondition there's a lot at stake when they go to geneva syrian opposition members have been telling
us that they want the united nations talks to succeed they want to united nations to be an impartial arbiter of these talks that are taking place on the twenty eighth of november in geneva because they don't want russia to be the main player and there has been talk by russia that it wants to hold hold another meeting of not just russia iran and turkey but also syrian opposition groups in sochi and. opposition members fear that this might be a way of diminishing the influence of the united nations where russia would take a lead role and many people in the opposition see russia as a partner with bashar assad and will do all it can to dry and keep him in power police in china are investigating reports that toddlers that a childcare center in beijing was sexually abused drugs and molested is the latest in a series of child abuse cases at daycare centers that has caused outrage across the country so fast and reports from beijing. they're in shock and

identification process must start it 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 the rangar refugees that came here had white cards now these white cards were proof of residency not citizenship myanmar government now saying that if the regime that you g.'s here now have proof that they once had one of those white cards then they would take to eventually be allowed to return 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 who are missing family members many of them are children so it's very difficult to get solid identification of these people. al-jazeera continues to demand the release of its journalist mahmoud
