just a fight southeast of parts of clearing through rio de janiero this area right in there becomes more active across parts of power but further south as we find in buenos aires with some temperature of twenty seven. young rich and famous in china one of the news goes behind the great chinese fire wall to meet the cyber celebs of a booming multibillion dollar business. at this time on al-jazeera. this is al jazeera.
everyone i'm come on santa maria this is the news from al-jazeera age it is vowing action after a bomb attack on a mosque in the sinai peninsula killed at least two hundred thirty five people. those who are of families. in the past. in a political sense are going is that zimbabwe's whereas in its first new president in thirty seven years and he is promising sweeping changes. in argentina a navy submarine is still missing and hopes for a happy ending are quickly fading. and germany's president is trying to break the political deadlock two months after the country's elections. and every one of these two hundred thirty five people have been killed in what's
been called the deadliest attack in gyptian history gunman bombed and then opened fire at a mosque in the northern sinai town of be it in the latest in a string of attacks by groups and so egypt is launching a military campaign in sinai president. three days of mourning but also talking about revenge in fact his words what we will respond with brutal force egypt is also securing its borders we have the planned reopening of the rafah crossing into gaza that has been put off until further notice how much energy and as a report. the bomb and gun attack happened during friday prayers at the old a mosque in egypt's northern sinai peninsula local sources say the attackers planted explosives and then opened fire on worshippers while the sermon was underway. or. looks like it was a. i decided. not really
clear motive was i know it's my responsibility yet but very possibly. they have targeted to be the last. night. president i'm going to put down has c.c. convened an emergency meeting of security officials hasn't had this these tragic event act of terrorism will make us more robust more a strong i want battle against terrorism we cannot be intimidated i will result cannot be dented we will remain more united will win this event the 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 lot in two thousand and fifteen really so i know there's been
a lot of. fighting between isis yesterday forces there for years now. and. a lot of. area as shock sets in and an investigation begins the egyptian government has declared three days of mourning. is that if you now an associate professor of political science at long island university who told us this attack is just part of an ongoing cycle of violence. terrorist organizations such as isis or whether it's the isis officer that is in egypt or i'm sorry but it will not this have tried to be 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 are 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 claim 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 so these armed groups for example inside of it will knock this and with a good sign i have garnered more strength in this day since to 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 on 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 where on to other news now enough to thirty seven years zimbabwe has a new leader. it was sworn in on friday in harare his promise to create jobs and to compensate white farmers whose lens was seized but digital so pay tribute to robert mcgovern. i was of course forced to step down for me to miller as i reported. a new and of holding democracy is how him is and when our guard 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 and god was swearing into office an inauguration meant to cement the veneer of a politically driven solution from within the ruling zanu p.f. party was a bigger nod turned repriced. we can do in the
present and huge or you are a nation a different person. when i 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 have learned that there is a gulf between what they say and what they actually do this in government action is coming from from the same party that elites know from his people two million jobs and 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 mcabee ensuring he stayed in power one of the major things that
we were going to know is that we are faced with an election and what happens if this new president loses that election would the military be able to hold the elysees of taking the direction 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 gobby regime for what it called axe to undermine democracy but when i got worse is now is the time to reengage with the west for people here president money on guard was certainly made all the right noises talking directly about the needs of everyday zimbabweans he's 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.
many in zimbabwe never even imagined robert mugabe would step down one of the chances spoke to some of them in harare about their hopes for the country under president. nearly 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 the drive down the roads down the highways it was we are 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 and i 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 well known urban our base is also reaching out to the world community they have been added to the modern economy to recall a 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 the age of forty innocent and not what the new president will say or 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 will 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. 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. the search for a missing argentine submarine continues even though there is almost no hope that the forty four crew members are still alive and resting it is looking into evidence of a possible explosion near its last known location many family members are angry at the navy's handling of this incident. at the navy base in. the hope the prayers the expectation expressed here at the model plata naval base
the home of the missing submarine the air race so one turned to anger and despair the families of the forty four crewmembers were told the face of their loved ones. there are still people with hope but i think that's it is time to look for the body they don't want to say which is why we feel empty and but there's nothing more to do and lay them to rest. he loved his job was totally dedicated this was his last voyage i'm devastated. they want to know why news of an explosion on board shortly after the submarine lost contact on the van with the fifteen took so long to be revealed when they kept in the dark. president has promised a full inquiry and to answer the families and the rest of argentina.
i'm here to guarantee that we will continue the search especially now that we can count on the help of the international community and the technology that they have available we hope to find a submarine in the next few days. the navy high command is likely to be removed and despite the frustration and sadness as it did terminations to keep searching. remember until we have firm evidence of where the submarine is we cannot reach any conclusions believe nothing to chance there's a strong force reaching the remaining uncovered area that operation involves ships aircraft and undersea rescue equipment from more than ten countries often in severe weather conditions the families more in argentina is asking what went wrong who was responsible and what should happen now but with the sun one possibly several hundred meters at the bottom of the south atlantic ocean those questions may never be satisfactorily answered and argentina must assess his relationship with his navy
as it comes to terms with one of its worst tragedies in recent years that. model blatter germany's president is holding talks with party leaders to end a political deadlock on forming a new coalition government social democrats that are marking schultz had ruled out taking part in another government headed by chance lying of a goal he previously insisted his party should be going into opposition but he now says party members will get a vote on any coalition deal dominic kane with more now from berlin. for the past two months germany's social democrats have been licking their wounds after their worst electoral performance in modern german democratic history the watchword has been opposition their leader martin shields who presided over that worst ever defeat but said opposition was what he has paid a needs to look its wounds to find new policies and to reconnect with the electorate but the collapse of the so-called jamaica coalition talks has refocused
people's attention on the s. payday and a chorus of voices a growing chorus of voices have said to mr schultz well perhaps now is the time to rethink that refusal to contemplate coalition with angela merkel and he seems to have listened. in the eight hours was spent talking with discussed openly the contribution the s.p.d. can make to coalition whatever form that may take. the irony of the situation is that the grand coalition mr schultz has been so resistant to is still governing germany in a can't say capacity the question for him the question for angle americal now is can they find a form of agreement that can take germany forward because many leaders in europe worry about the vacuum of leadership that a continued protracted lack of coalition talks might bring and of course the doomsday scenario at the back of everyone's minds is if they can't find agreement
well they can't really be a general election until next april and so everyone is very keen to avoid that particular dilemma here's what's coming up on this news hour. i'm scott either in chin state myanmar just over one hundred twenty years ago an american baptist missionary planted the seeds of christianity here and like other religious minorities in this country they have faced persecution in this buddhist majority country their story coming up. also a sports story that's well really about politics how much golf is too much if you also happen to be the president. and despite having already won the formula one title lewis hamilton is keeping up the pace in abu dabi far as along with all the schools. syria's main saudi backed opposition group has selected
a new chief negotiator nasa how d.d. will lead the negotiations committee the high negotiations committee and un back talks in geneva next week he replaces a riyadh head job who resigned last week the group is insisting president bashar assad leave office and i really says everything is on the negotiating table in geneva. the trumpet ministration has decided to allow the palestinian diplomatic office in washington d.c. to remain open and had said the office would be shards because palestinian leaders called for the international criminal court to prosecute israel over illegal jewish settlements in the u.s. said that statement was a breach of its laws in response the p.l.o. threaten to cut all communication with washington the functions of the office will be limited for ninety days after that it can return to full operation but only if the us government says. so then as prime minister is facing possible impeachment for supporting a syrian refugee. wants to find an alternative to deportation for this man is sixty year old ahmed shah mia who arrived last year e.u.
rules say he must be sent back to croatia where he was first registered as a refugee but sheer scene is that example of positive integration having learned the civilian language so as coalition partners are threaten to pull out over his support for mr but there are conflicting accounts about just how much aid is really getting into war torn yemen the saudi led coalition fighting there third that is allowing u.n. aid workers to return but the u.n. says it's still being blocked international community is demanding reality the it's too weak blockade that seven million people are facing famine after the coalition closed air land and three access when the rebels fired a missile towards riyadh earlier this month. we stress the critical importance of reassuring also commercial imports in particular fuel supplies for our humanitarian response humanitarians are serving the needs of seven million people who are completely dependent on us. saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin salman as
outlined his reform plans in an interview with the new york times been salman told a newspaper his so-called anticorruption crackdown which has seen numerous members of the royal family detained will net the country approximately hundred billion dollars in assets he describes suggestions that the detentions are a power grab is ludicrous or surprise donald trump is the right person at the right time in the u.s. he called iran's supreme leader meanwhile the hitler of the middle east and he also promoted his plan to return the kingdom to a more moderate form of islam the prince said the nine hundred seventy nine occupation of mecca is grand mosque by activists opposed to the world family and also that years iranian revolution caused the country to embrace religious conservatives and so i spoke to jamal khashoggi a little bit earlier who is a saudi journalist and author told us the interview didn't address issues of transparency accountability or freedom of expression there is a somewhat formal one but most of money is not out of it because people are fed up
with corruption on the left and it's bad news the second half of the. reform that is not being idly yet and it got because of even discussed by the interviewer mr thomas friedman about check and balance of power there are. about political openness. there are going to decide it's just been a written sort of you know in there i object on concern because that's had to be the last word so course all your to me just that i. brought you. out of this thing. i was reading it is not only on the form of entertainment and woman driving women have been driving this year and in egypt since. the u.s. in both countries and the but i did not miss studio egypt three countries and we saw what happened there in two thousand a look at. al-jazeera continues to demand the release of its journalist mahmoud
hussein has been in an egyptian prison for eleven months now hussein is accused of broadcasting false news to spread chaos which he and al jazeera strongly deny hussein's also repeatedly claimed complaint i should say of mistreatment in jail he was arrested on december the twentieth while visiting family in egypt. human rights groups are calling for international agencies to monitor the repatriation of ranger refugees but meanwhile in bangladesh a sign there pact which would allow those displaced to return once their paperwork is completed but there are about six hundred thousand range of muslims who can skate an army crackdown in rakhine state over the past three months child strengthened as more from cuts is bizarre in bangladesh. there are of course the major issues with respect to the implementation of this agreement that has been made between bangladesh and me and with respect to the repatriation of bringing the refugees cheaper which of course is the question of exactly where many of these
people go back to their villages have been destroyed burnt 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 it says that this agreement is loosely based on the one that was put together in one nine hundred ninety two when there was a similar outbreak of violence in one thousand nine hundred two they were going to 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. buddhist majority me and mine does have a history of oppressing minorities christians living in the mountains near the border with india faced violent oppression under military rule although that situation has improved the system remains stacked against them mascot behind the reports now from haka in chin state remote and rugged straddling mountain tops chin state is the poorest region in myanmar resources scarce development slow what is plentiful are churches they dot the chin hills. home to about a half a million people nearly ninety percent of them are christian and in buddhist majority myanmar they have faced decades of oppression under military rule.
forced labor force conversion to buddhism and persecution at one point bibles couldn't be imported. giant across there. to symbolize you know. the christian. but. a member of this baptist church who has lived all his seventy years in chin state capital four of his children emigrated to the us. previous military governments didn't have interest or sympathy for i blame them for the poverty development and for no job opportunities for young people and that i had to send my children away. this small hillside compound commemorates the man who founded the first christian community here in chin state american baptists reverend arthur carson and his wife laura were the first missionaries to come here in one thousand
nine hundred nine he died nine years later he's buried right here in hawkeye the people of chin say the situation's getting better but one government official himself a catholic denies past oppression. most chimp people felt like we were being oppressed but we weren't it was just miscommunication between the government and people. but still today the government system favors buddhism. even though we are a christian area the government schools are forcing young children to worship but ism and to take buddhism classes. human rights activists say that the way forward for the people of chin for its future b.n. mars' leaders need to make good on promises of religious freedom. if not the minorities will continue to be treated and live as second class citizens gotta al-jazeera aka me and my. us media is reporting the former national security
advisor michael flynn's legal team is no longer talking to president on all trumps lawyers suggests flynn may be ready to cooperate with the investigation into russian interference in last year's election he could also be looking to negotiate a deal with prosecutors. to resign in february over allegations he misled the white house about his contacts with the russian ambassador trump is broken with white house custom and mission going to play a quick round of golf before working on peace in the middle east he regularly spends the weekends at a golf course but aides seldom acknowledge it so is he spending too much time on the green on fishing takes a look at that. president trump for the birdie he's a king go for a very king goal for this first three hundred eight days in office president donald trump has been on the course almost a quarter of that time in fact in his first one hundred days he's played more than any modern president he's played with prime ministers and politicians from thought
if he won the white house he would have to give it all up because i'm going to be working for you i'm not going to have time to go play golf. donald trump isn't the first president to have a love affair with golf william howard taft was the first to openly play the game white eisenhower loved it so much he did tree and the cabin named after him at augusta national the home of the masters competition george w. bush's exploits made it into a documentary i call upon all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers. thank you. now watch this drive. we have hope bad that looked from the second gulf war started he stopped playing clinton golf as did obama which takes us back to where we started with trump's tweets and criticisms obama it was reported today plato hundred fifty rounds of golf he played more jobs last year than tiger woods still thinking about his staff really acknowledge when he hits the course insisting no matter where he is the president is always working when it's tiger woods i don't call that work
a one of the things that is i think reflective of his if you want to call a listener from office is the fact that there are numerous high level positions in every single department of the executive branch that are go on feel because he's just lazy he hasn't even made nominations critics say after all the promises he made after all the speeches and all the tweets it's surprising this president has spent as much time in the clubhouse as the white house alan fischer al-jazeera. still ahead here this news hour an outcry in china iran after revelations more child abuse cases that day care it's. after years of fights in the courts the u.s. tobacco industry is forced to fund anti smoking. sport another acolyte the legal messy that is coming up later in sport with our.

around the country this crisis is seen as a strong message to the government to take action to improve the safety of topless and i'm sure they're helping development in a country that is increasingly depending on professional childcare. since china has adopted its second child policy last year the man for child care has grown the country has limited parents to have only one son or daughter for forty years. but research shows that more than half of chinese parents choose not to have a second child because of the lack of proper childcare and soon are you going to these are not just incidence. is quite nerve wrecking it reflects the problem more serious lack of childcare this is a serious social issue. namor and only on have put china second child policy into practice but the young parents are struggling after a care worker forced their daughter to eat in the toilet at the childcare center

ordered to warn of the dangers of smoking after a federal judge found the tobacco industry had deceived the public for years to have a chance he recalls. smoking is highly addictive these messages will air in primetime for one year on major u.s. television networks along with adverts in fifty newspapers. radio and t.v. ads promoting cigarettes were banned in one nine hundred seventy but the new adverts should have added years ago they were ordered in two thousand and six after a big tobacco was found to have misrepresented and deceived the american public about the effects of smoking by a federal judge they brought appeal after appeal after appeal and contesting every issue they could think of to try to delay the time when they would actually have to be forced to tell the truth to the american people campaign as a skeptical as to the difference these ads will make partly because the media has
changed so much over the last decade most us smokers begin as teenagers but now less than five percent of network t.v. viewers are under twenty five also the trumpet ministration is filled with those who once worked for or received large sums from big tobacco infamously vice president mike penn's once wrote an editorial that accepted the dangers of smoking yet asserted time for a quick reality check despite the hysteria from the political class and the media smoking doesn't kill so this is a general no francisco one successfully argued in court against printing the telephone number for a service to help smokers quit on cigarette packets on behalf of tobacco company r.j. reynolds president trump's nominee to oversee chemical safety at the environmental protection agency took money from big tobacco to promote research that downplayed the effects of secondhand smoke we cannot afford to have to back up policy being being made by the lawyers for the tobacco industry. the proportion of u.s.
adults who smoke is now fifteen percent it was forty two percent in the sixty's however due to population growth that still represents thirty six and a half million people in addition in low income areas the proportion of smokers can reach thirty seven percent cigarette taxes remain low in many states political donations from big tobacco plentiful which helps explain why big tobacco is still views the u.s. as a growth market the world's largest tobacco profit pool outside of china in the words of one cigarette executive she average hansie al-jazeera has matthew minds now president of tobacco free kids who told us the ads are a step in the right direction they contain information that many people don't know including the fact that tobacco companies have design and continue design their cigarettes consciously with enough nicotine to make them it addictive they'll have their own their full effect only if others amplify them that's why stories like
when you're running are so important what's critically important for the everybody to understand is that while this decision was first made eleven years ago the tobacco companies haven't changed their behavior and they need to continue to warn the public about the out the facts of smoking is no less today than it was ten years ago which is critically important for everybody understand this these ads are a sharp reminder that the tobacco companies haven't changed their wrongful behavior that's why they continue to fight these and dirt is meant even tell now out the last appeal shockingly was just over whether or not the ads would begin with the phrase here's the truth the tobacco industry still doesn't want the public to know the truth. the capital of honduras is tightening security ahead of sunday's presidential election the incumbent leader. is campaigning on public security saying he's made the safe it was one of the highest murder rates in the world his
first turn so a crackdown on violent gangs well the government says progress has been made to tackle violence but many are not convinced. reports on that. young innocent often the victims of gang violence for now with extra security forces deployed to this neighborhood children can play without watching their backs . on average more than three hundred people male and young are every month this country is not formally a war zone but for years it has been the world's murder leader but that isn't to be changing. we implemented the community police model where we get closer to people talk to them when their trust they call us to give us information about criminals so we can capture them. violent homicides are reported to have fallen by just over twenty percent in the last year the violence observatory responsible for
monitoring violent deaths says there's a number of reasons why among them the dismantling of drug cartels and increasing the security budget and reform of the police force the government says one of the reasons there's been a fall in the number of violent deaths it's because of army and police patrols like this one in some of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the country. but here on the outskirts of some the most dangerous city in the country says she lives in fear and doesn't believe the government's claims of success. is always kidnappings violent killings it's difficult for us to talk about this there are repercussions of violence hasn't reduced although the numbers are down critics say. policing remains sporadic and people still live in fear and. it's costly to keep troops permanently the areas are very large and many are still controlled by criminals.
and the targeted killings continue in recent days the bodies of three political activists were found but government supporters say improvement needs to be measured over the long term. the murder rate is still six times larger than the world average the situation is still critical but the policies must be sustainable to show the population that this is the way to repress crime. for now a signal is being sent to the gangs that change is happening in the us and that children have a right to play in peace but yes i'm just i'm just some. us eleven people have been killed in a fire at a hotel in georgia twenty one others were treated in hospital at least one hundred firefighters had to be sent to tackle that places in the black city result city of but to me european leaders have criticised russia or at a summit of the e.u. and six former soviet states the british prime minister tourism a said russia was
a hostile state threatening birth growth in eastern europe and the e.u. as president donald tusk condemned what he said was russian aggression in eastern ukraine the un has called for the forced sorry has called the forced removal of refugees from a prison camp on man a silent shocking inexcusable police in pompano guinea cleared their remaining three hundred twenty eight men from the former australian run site on friday the camp had been closed three weeks ago but many refugees refused to go fearing they would be attacked andrew thomas sent us this report from an assignment. on thursday 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 their new accommodation in the nearby town accommodation australia's government says is ready but 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 eviction they're probably sent him a version of offering again it just me to me and drove me over the. ground and needs me to 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 wooden iron bars. two years ago al jazeera filmed on manna 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 have free living you can have
