as i recall but primarily it was material support to terrorism the holy land foundation was the biggest muslim charity in the usa i'd definitely shared this with a political trial and that these were political prisoners because we were able to see the secret over them we were able to tell in a two part series al jazeera world examines one of the most controversial court cases of the so-called war on terror the holy land five at this time on al jazeera world. damning chronicles of human rights violations a un report says the saudi led coalition may have committed war crimes in yemen.
2:01 pm
bugs the hell rahman you're watching out is there a life war headquarters here in doha coming up in the next thirty minutes u.s. president donald trump extends the iran nuclear deal but with tough conditions for the future russia says the move is extremely negative. we shall intensify our efforts to realize my deep vision of a united south africa. the african national congress is new leader val's to revive nelson mandela's legacy. plus international tech giants to stand on the vegas strip we check out what's on offer at the consumer electronics show. for twelve years or we start where al jazeera has been given access to unpublished u.n. reports that chronicle the extent of human rights violations and possible war crimes
2:02 pm
in the war in yemen it also deals with details the extent to which saudi arabia and iran have intervened in the conflict the assessment presented to the security council is sharply critical of sided coalition airstrikes which of course the majority of civilian deaths in the war the findings also bolster accusations by the u.s. that iranian weapons have been supplied to who the rebels breaking a u.n. embargo the report further accuses the united arab emirates of running torture camps in yemen where people have been beaten and electrocuted the panel paints a devastating picture of a conflict that's killed more than ten thousand people and led to widespread famine and displacement well after there was diplomatic editor james bays has more from the u.n. in new york. this is a report to the u.n. security council has not been made public it's only been given to the fifteen members of the security council but i've been allowed to read
2:03 pm
a copy and it's very hard hitting and very critical of all of the parties in the war in yemen it questions whether yemen can continue to be one country it says in the south because of the length of the war in the divisions that have emerged there is the real possibility of secession into a separate south yemen it says in the south of the country people displaying the flag of the old country of south yemen and are not loyal to president had he although they're formally under his command it says that president heidi has no longer effective command and control of the military and security forces in the south of yemen it says one of the reasons that there is this lack of stability in yemen is actually the forces that have been built up by the saudi led coalition it says that there are proxy units that they have drawn up but it says that these units will do more to further the fragility of yemen then they will do to hold the
2:04 pm
state together it says they pose a threat to peace and stability in yemen it is also very critical of the coalition for civilian casualties in yemen it says that it appears that the saudi led coalition has not been following international humanitarian law and it says it's likely that some of those who are responsible for planning and executing airstrikes fall under the designation of the security council as people who should be subject to sanctions again the another damning part of the report is about the u.n. a part of the coalition in the camps there running inside yemen it says that there has been torture in these camps it talks about beatings electrocution constrain suspension the use of what it. calls the cage which is confinement in a cage in the sunlight and the denial of medical treatment it says working with the government of yemen gives the u.a.e.
2:05 pm
plausible deniability so it is a possibility are now now given this report by the panel of experts that the security council must consider whether there should be sanctions against members of the coalition and also sanctions against iran because the who these sides are also criticized it says that there have been military remnants of military equipment and drones that are of iranian origin and were introduced in yemen after the security council adopted an arms embargo well as in bahrain is a fisting fellow at the european council on foreign relations he says it's unlikely the un report will be followed up by diplomatic action in yemen. these were crime allegations have been going around and been voiced by a number of u.n. officials for some time don't get me wrong i think this is very important that these things are being documented if not you know perhaps for immediate action for the sake of the future and for it to be recorded in history but i think in
2:06 pm
a lot of ways unfortunately and particularly with. i would say the lack of u.s. leadership in the region at this point it's really hard to imagine there being sustained diplomatic action on yemen at this point despite the i would say severity of the allegations that we're seeing in this report and the deep severity of the situation in yemen right now. when you look at it it's easy for them to for people to kind of deflect and that goes not just for the states that are involved in this conflict with the risking saudi arabia whoever it on. but this is also in terms of internal parties and you've seen i guarantee you that you will have significant reporting on this document by media aligned with all of the key word parties that being said which are going to see is you know when say the who fees and they're aligned media are talking about this report they leave out all of the stuff criticizing the hoodies and when you see you know. media aligned with some of the coalition member states they'll completely report on the allegations against these
2:07 pm
and the documented uses by the these but will leave out other things so i think that's kind of an in issue at this point is there is this climate really of of impunity in the conflict in yemen and when you have all sides really committing these kind of violations it makes it even harder to really hold anybody to accounts and unfortunately this just underlines the extent that this conflict continues to be just a horrific tragedy for the yemeni people who while the leaders are largely crying rich off this war continues to suffer the world's worst humanitarian crisis well u.s. president trump has extended the iran nuclear deal but said it's the last time he'll do so. because european allies that hill withdraw from the twenty fifty to be able to list what he calls disastrous flaws although trust russia says troops comments are extremely negative. well there all it's foreign minister mohammad says the twenty fifteen deal is not free negotiable on twitter he called trump's
2:08 pm
announcement a desperate attempt to undermine a solid multilateral agreement there was a spoke to people on the streets of tehran. nearly two and a half years after the nuclear deal was signed many iranians say they haven't seen any real benefits and that president hassan rouhani promised more than he could deliver on but that's not the stuff they did get a house the money plea deal had no impact at all in my life the price of rice as doubles expenses to millions in rent meanwhile the children of official people don't exist money to my pocket or to the woman selling things on the street which people but some are still willing to stand by their president communism on television news when it is doing his best of course there are some problems in the country sanctions pressure from abroad naturally impacts the livelihoods and the economic situation but if we just blame the president and say he is the one who has to do something of course he cannot we should stand next to him cooperate with him
2:09 pm
and tolerate the situation the nuclear deal had some success the lifting of sanctions let iran sell oil again freely on the international market exports are up to more than two million barrels a day but gains have been overshadowed by u.s. president donald trump's aggressive stance towards iran every few months the iranian nuclear deal was thrown into chaos and managing that political turmoil takes up so much of the iranian government's time that there isn't a lot of room left for public discourse about much else trump has created so much uncertainty about the nuclear deal that iranians say it's been as harmful as sanctions that the deal was meant to lift many people are frustrated that foreign investors are too scared to come to iran and the value of their currency keeps falling. trump is a person who has a psychological problem his. opinions have no balance on any issue there's always changing his mind and for me as an iranian and for most iranians it doesn't matter
2:10 pm
if the us pulls out of the deal as long as european countries cooperate with us we will stay in the deal the. summer audience don't care about the nuclear deal and say they simply want to get on with their lives i doubt their money may have had to live on the show i just want to make people happy that said and i don't care about anything else making people happy is a kind of arts and i'm not interested in these kinds of nuclear conversations. like upload the iran's government says it's ready to deal with any scenario so to it seems our its people. the old easier. than you had of south africa's ruling african national congress has to crack down on corruption and restore nelson mandela's mission the party's one hundred sixth anniversary several ram opposer has been outlining his vision for the anti-apartheid movement that became the country's first democratic government he's widely seen as a possible successor to president jacob zuma who is expected to step down when his
