1:04 pm
until terrorism is uprooted and erased from the face of the earth which once again i welcome you and i hope you will come out with a successful one recommendations and welcome there. all right so brief welcoming remarks from mohammed bin solomon m.b.'s who is the crown prince of saudi arabia as i mentioned earlier this is the islamic military counter-terrorism coalition and that's a coalition of more than forty islamic countries that have agreed to form this security arrangement the stated aim is to reduce or to wipe out completely from the face of the earth in fact according to n.b.s.
1:05 pm
terrorism listening to this with us has been. our correspondent has been monitoring it from beirut and has long much awaited much anticipated. appearance by m.b.a.'s is perhaps the most controversial figure in the middle east at the moment. indeed and he's been the rallying force behind this international islamic coalition against terrorism into a thousand and fifteen and he hopes to bring together muslim nations to try to disrupt the financing of the terrorist groups and also to target them militarily in different parts of the world and also to try to tackle their ideology has said in his brief statement that the biggest problem the muslims face is basically the fact that groups like i still distort islam and that there needs to be something done
1:06 pm
immediately to tackle it however martina have to say that the international coalition faces many problems because they said that they would like to tackle to tackle i said in places like syria and iran but we know that three countries have not joined this coalition which are iran a key player in the region syria and iraq because of the huge differences with saudi arabia now i can see the internet this islamic coalition sending troops to fight i said in syria and iraq without having the iraqi government or the syrian government allowing in number two iran is a country that plays a crucial role in those areas and therefore if you don't have iran on board there's absolutely no way you can move forward ok but also this element of the divide between the main certainly countries and i think these are challenges that the coalition faces a hat and it has been called
1:07 pm
a sectarian coalition hasn't it or it's been described as a sunni majority alliance there's no iran involved in this how is it actually actually being deployed as it actually practically been put into use. your. what it is because it's a coalition of predominantly sunni countries then the question is what about places like countries like iraq syria and iran and how can you come up with a plan for a plan of action we comes to deploying troops or coordinating military action against isis in different parts of the muslim world the latest. crisis that we've seen playing out in lebanon where iran and the saudis have been confronting each other about about a future role in the region gives you an indication that last you have the two
1:08 pm
countries coming together the possibility for a breakthrough when it comes to tackling is going to be slim saudi arabia and iran are engaged in a confrontation over supremacy in the middle east and a less the two countries set aside their differences people are concerned that it won't be an easy task for this international coalition to be able to stem the rise . of. other groups like groups are fairly ated with. other groups operating in different bars we're talking about sub-saharan africa and north africa also the middle east indeed. live in beirut for now thank you very much indeed. now protests is a return to the streets only outskirts of pakistan's capital islamabad an even larger numbers and this is despite a police crackdown on saturday at least six people were killed one hundred fifty
1:09 pm
people were injured when officers moved in to disperse a protest camp using tear gas and water cannon now thousands of others have been rallying in solidarity they've blocked roads in several cities and paralyzed major highways the government has asked the military to step in to restore order but at least for now the army seems rather reluctant to get involved now the protesters are supporters of a religious political group that angry over the wording of a parliamentary bill and they want the whole cabinet to resign maryanna honed as more. dancers are called to shut down pakistan issued by cleric and political party leader who stands in opposition to the government for three weeks protesters have choked the streets of islamabad and when there was violence on saturday as police tried to disperse them they spread along highways to other major cities including the whore and karachi.
1:10 pm
this movement is not political it is the duty of every muslim to protect the owner of islam the protesters maintain this is not political but this is an issue that could undermine pakistan's government. it began when pakistan's norman is desired hammered introduced a bill before parliament that made no reference to the prophet muhammad protest is linked it to the highly contentious issue of blasphemy and while the amendment was withdrawn blind on a clerical error and hammett apologized the little known group behind the protests argued it remained an affront tells them they want the minister gone. and after the violence on saturday they want the entire cabinet to resign. well private television broadcasts a blocked and social media sites are restricted but then. we have no news all the t.v. channels are closed people aren't coming out of their houses because they're scared
1:11 pm
it's a strange situation in the backyard of the narcanon this is the fault of the clerics their extremist attitudes they simply don't care about people and the business is being destroyed by the clerics doing this in the name of islam they're absolutely wrong and people are in pain but protest organizers have still managed to spread the call for demonstrators did begin encouraged by the police failure to get them off the streets kadhim hussein rizvi the cleric who leads the. pakistan party has called on his followers to bring the entire country to a halt the government has responded by calling in the army many a bracing for what that might mean. and to zero. all right let's go live to our correspondent he is in a place called. now that's on the road between the hall and islamabad and come all first of all the objective of these protests is to shut the country down it seems very much as though they're managing to cause
1:12 pm
a huge amount of inconvenience for many many people. yes that's true actually in the u.s. sitting in islamabad and dad blog traffic through islamabad and between robin day for several week however the police action having faith has strengthened those protesters to come out there's also been a reaction to the police action in islamabad and now you have a problem in all major days end up on job and even in the southern province of sindh but the borders of the party are angry that the government did you doing high handed tactic in orderly and. then as you saw in that report they now want to hold a cabinet or a dog the pakistani military chief is going to be meeting their budgets on the prime minister within the next few hours he will be attempting to convince the prime minister that this is indeed a see you see issue the government and already the military to come in aid of the
1:13 pm
civilian administration but the military as you saw and report all still reluctant because it doesn't want to take on those protestors their head a job after defend the front end of the country show a political crisis brewing up again ramifications fall now why should leave the government of course he had been disqualified by the sitting government is going to take the heat for what is happening across pakistan indeed come out of this is a new. appointed prime minister the policy battling really for its political survival how they miscalculated the seriousness of it because this has been going on now for a couple of weeks. absolutely in fact now it has become associated many parties then the ruling party are now trying to distance themselves from the pakistan muslim league now was because of fear that day would be repercussions that far in the public reaction is concerned about their
1:14 pm
safety so indeed the government had miscalculated the country i mean it. was very confident saying the idea would be read day the high court had said that this was basically challenging the rate of the government that people's rights will being abused because there was lack of movement people put in order moved and showed a court will also be coming out wrong to watch the government as to how it has to dish log of. take it on or protect water all cure buying any particular area so of course big question mark after the performance of the government also important to note that if there is created an orchestrated within the next few days it could spiral out of control right now they're busy body and they're dead but. have now has given them caused or take on this particular
1:15 pm
project to a new dimension and they're probably going to capitalize on it all right for now thank you very much. with little saying life from. the zimbabwean president is getting down to business just two days after he was sworn in and isn't one and god is picking his cabinet and devising government reforms in his inaugural speech on friday he vowed to reengage with the wealth fight corruption and create jobs and simmons reports from the zimbabwean capital harare. undoubtedly one of the main aims of this weekend from going on is actually finishing off a list of his cabinet which is expected to be announced on monday possibly and beyond that he has to look at further ways of attracting investment to zimbabwe he's coming under a lot of pressure from the west to come out with effective reforms he's promised democracy and a lot of people are now saying when will we hear the full plan but certainly the
1:16 pm
m.d.c. the main opposition party in zimbabwe they are saying that it has to be seen to be believed they are predicting that they will give this man a chance but magog is resolute in that he will change things even though he has a past which is directly linked to. and also he still stands accused of a number of human rights abuses and indeed an allegation in much of the land in the eighty's of being part of atrocities that were ordered so ahead of him a lot of problems a lot of excitement it has to be said amongst zimbabweans but then on this rainy sunday there is this feeling now that is growing that maybe this is not is as beautiful as it seems that mugabe may be gone but now the honeymoon period may not last as long as some people think. now ma'am are in bangladesh of agree to accept
1:17 pm
help from the un with the repeated tradition of ranger refugees it's hoped the plan will allow people to return home safely at least six hundred thousand muslim or hindu has crossed the border into bangladesh since a military crackdown began in me a mosque in august let's go to phil robertson he's deputy director of the asia division at human rights watch he is in buying coke first of all phil let's get your thoughts about the plan the plan has been agreed by me and and bangladesh to repatriate around six hundred thousand range or who've crossed over into bangladesh only since august well there are a lot of problems with this agreement it's a bilateral agreement between myanmar and bangladesh they're aiming to start returns within two months of the signing which would basically be around the third week of january. this is really a first step there's a lot of details are still lacking they still have to be negotiated but the biggest problem is they forgot to ask the rohingya who are in the camps they want to go
1:18 pm
back and whether what is being offered in terms of protection would be sufficient and do you do you think they do want to go back fill with your knowledge of of this group of people. i do not believe they want to go back at this time in fact they don't feel that there's anything that has changed on the ground in terms of the myanmar army's attitude towards. what you know there are no protection guarantees here in this agreement i mean they there's no clear role for you and it's yarn monitoring people going back into myanmar you know the u.n. refugee agency in the past when their returns back in one thousand nine hundred one did accompany the running go back to myanmar and they did stay there and monitor what happened to their men and there's no such provision here it's it's basically at the discretion of the myanmar government about whether you need c.r. would be allowed to return or not ok but we are we are reporting today that. there is no u.n.
1:19 pm
involvement in the agreement would that be sufficient correct well i don't think so the the guarantee of u.n. involvement is all coming from the bangladesh side because they want the un's help in having an orderly return they want to help ensure that the u.n. is there to assist them if they do try to put people on buses and send them back. the guarantees are not on the myanmar side and the rohingya are concerned that if they if they go back into harm's way how do they know that they're not going to see the same sort of cutthroat attitude from the myanmar army that they saw the chased him out of the country in the first place so it sounds like this agreement needs needs a considerable amount of action to be done given that the me and my government has agreed to some form of a arrangement with the bangladeshi government is this something that can be capitalized on the fact that me and my. responding to international pressure is preparing to consider having the range of people return. there's
1:20 pm
a lot of work that needs to be done and a lot of credit to that need to be met before this weekend except the right term you know ensuring its voluntary insurance rights respecting you know they put those words in this agreement but actually making it happen on the ground is a different sort of thing you know ensuring people are able to go back to the homes that they left or the areas that they left you know many of these villages in fact were burnt down so you know are things going to be rebuilt for them you know and also i mean it says very clearly here that if people are not able to go back to their original areas because of security concerns they would be placed in another another spot and we're very concerned that this is going to mean the kind of locked down tension camp facilities that we see in central rakhine state that are still holding over one hundred twenty thousand rohingya who were displaced in two thousand and twelve all right phil thank you for that phil robertson of human rights watch talking to us live from bangkok. we've got
1:21 pm
a lot more to come on this out of their news hour including another step in the polls long path to democracy where they just are having the same the regional elections. i did sports sunday mounts a hundred years since the founding of the national hockey league peter will have more on that in just a short while. the russian jets have targeted i still feiss in rural parts of the syrian city of day of the russian defense ministry says six of its planes carried out strikes in the area the armed group was driven out of. the city of it anyway earlier this month and now it only controls pockets of the countryside. rights groups are warning the arrival of four aid planes in yemen is not enough to

1:23 pm
but that has now stopped the world food program tells al-jazeera it's still waiting to offload a ship carrying twenty five thousand metric tons of wheat enough to feed one point eight million yemenis for a month people need an avalanche of eight millions are on the brink of famine and they're struggling to survive cholera polio and diptheria outbreaks in addition to the war humanitarians are serving the needs of seven million people who are completed dependent on. the blockade began on november sixth after who the rebels fired a ballistic missile into saudi arabia. a saudi led coalition fighting on behalf of the government says it needed to stop weapons smuggling the u.n. warns commercial imports particularly food and fuel must also resume the world food program says continuing to choke off the supply could have
1:24 pm
a disastrous effect on fourteen million people living in northern yemen people it says it doesn't have the resources to help natasha going to does iraq. the island is facing a political crisis over an escalating. policing scandal and possibly weakening its hand during negotiations the opposition is demanding the resignation of the deputy leader francis fitzgerald who is accused of failing to protect a police officer he was smeared in victimize after revealing widespread corruption prime minister. who's standing by his embattled deputy now faces the prospect of a no confidence vote taking place next week by the second largest party fianna for oil now that could pull down his minority government and lead to snap elections leaving arland in political chaos just as negotiations reach a critical phase over the irish border because the. barker. who is
1:25 pm
director of research at the school of law and govern dublin city university but it this on this occasion he's talking to us from may dover. first of all how seriously how seriously dangerous and is this moment how critical is this moment for the government the new government in ireland there was only book voted in and put in place in june. yes it's it's critical it's come completely out of the blue you mention of course it's about speed new administration and the vulnerability of this administration go back to its origins and we had a general election last year the result was that the science of the party in power in a gale over a third of its seats however it still was the largest party so even though it lost the election he still won power what do you want our i have been kind of a what's called a supply and confidence agreement with the opposition parties for more or less they
1:26 pm
are not the oppositions pleasure when the t. shirt went for approval from the parliament you want to receive a third of the votes of the other a little bit of against the other third state and so it was always very long it was issues that could be taken down any moment i think what surprises people is that it's this issue that's looking like a pretty down the government as a former prime minister once said in our image and it's the little things that trip you up and this was a simmering it surely has been there for many years but we were very surprised to find ourselves syria to face the election which really nobody wants i think in the country or very few certainties and explain for us then why this potential political turmoil in ireland could spell dissolve the full britain's attempt to leave the european union. well i think what it does is it creates further instability further uncertainty we don't have if you don't have gotten the job the conflict situation we don't have gotten to belfast and of course we have
1:27 pm
a chaotic and divided government in london we saw from the user perspective giving with bribes and treating with the irish issue which is the course a very important part of the whole greater because issues it means. for us perspective it's very difficult to know who to negotiate and to the people they negotiate with have a cowardly to make agreements which will probably stand for decades and this is why i think it's a critical time and it's a critical challenge to keep this government together because the you of course is a summit coming not a critical summit to decide whether to do causations move through phase want to the uk the issue of the border which separates northern ireland no property part is an integral part of those people stations and if there's no irish government in place then of course you get coverage of the irish government disappear if we can get these issues all right don't arca a back and thank you very much indeed for talking politics to us from our moldova.
