fighters this fight being part of the saudi led coalition that is actually helping president hadi battle to who these are some a binge a fight explains. the. yemen's prime minister says secessionists have staged a coup in the southern port city of aden. that's where the government had been based for the last few years there are reports of several people being killed in fighting between pro-government forces and separatists. this mobile phone footage appears to show people arriving in the city thousands of protesters have been gathering against an internationally recognized and saudi backed government the demonstrators are backed by the united arab emirates which is supposed to be saudi arabia's ally in yemen. who. is not necessarily in that situation when you're already starting to really accept some of your very important. yeah. you're out there you were you are now. and you're if you.
12:04 am
will we. know that you have it's own you have your own lives. and more. you're really hungry i think we didn't want to repeat and based on current situation. the conflict in today's yemen is complicated the country used to be divided would be north and south yemen until unification in one nine hundred ninety but the difference is never really went away since the fight with the hoodies began in two thousand and fifteen the secessionists have fought for control over air and sea ports of aden last week southern forces led by the man appointed by president of the rebel months who are highly as the governor of aden announced to overthrow hardy's government and that major general rule is to be rejected the deployment of northern forces to the south there have been calls since last sunday so it's been about a week for people to go down to the streets to protest and the surf

transitional council has been calling on had the head of government to dissolve and for a new government to be appointed they are calling for independence as well as we've seen on the ground the crashes are continuing and the situation is developing very quickly now the future of president hadi is in question he has been based in saudi arabia along with this prime minister had been the other who struggled to control southern yemen despite support from saudi arabia. yemen's elected government was pushed out of the capital sanaa in the north and now it doesn't seem to have a place in the south as well some of the jarvey the others there. a senior political analyst might want to shara says the conflict in aden is playing into the hands of yemen's who the rebels the southern part of yemen cannot get back together and clearly the saudis and the immoralities that are sponsoring
12:06 am
the war in yemen in some sort some form or another coalition have outsourced much of the fighting within the country and that's leading to some major friction among the southern nerves as we've seen whether it is the president and his prime minister on the one hand of the whole country that is a bit had them and so had the and and his prime minister and the separatists if you will so all in all you know what the arab coalition is calling for what so many people who care for yemen are calling for you know basically let's wait until this whole thing settled the conflict with the whole cities and then we'll figure out what is it to be done in the south and yet the separatists are taking advantage of the fact that there is a war going on with the healthy with the weak link being in the southern part of yemen taking some sort of a sponsorship from abu dhabi in the united arab emirates in order to separate so it's really quite sad you know for yemen as it were. eight people including

targeting this important high point along the turkish border. explosions echoed over the border town of killis during a crowd. is strange fascination watching. but for some it's a little too close to home. even though we are hearing killis we've become used to the school has happened before when i saw it was on the other side of the border but i've still moved my wife and kids to another area to safety but i'm staying. turkey's offensive against the y.p. the kurdish group it considers a terrorist organization is very visible here. it is also stirred nationalist fervor.
12:09 am
and this is what that operation looks like inside syria turkey is backing free syrian army fighters and at the moment the main focus is pushing back from the border as the kurdish fighters say turkey's offensive has calls to. turkey says it only targets y p g positions. but as is often the case in war facts can be hard to cover. turkey's leaders stress that this is only the beginning and they intend to clear the wipe e.g. from its entire border area all the way to iraq but the y p g in that area further east is supported by the united states and there are american bases and military personnel on the ground their relations between ankara and washington are already tense and just another example of how complicated syria's war has become stephanie decker al-jazeera kilis on the turkish syrian border meanwhile turkish airstrikes during that battle in a frame have reportedly damaged an ancient temple pictures of the temple show it

part in opposition rallies the rally had called the protests in response to being barred from standing in the presidential election in large chalons reports from moscow. i knew for years it's become a familiar routine for novelli demonstration days while supporters in moscow and st petersburg slept in russia's eastern time zones they were already protesting being arrested this footage is from the siberian city of came out of a. and in the capital police moved against the opposition leader's office is this time temporarily shutting down his internet t.v. channel claiming a presenter had a bomb from a secret location alexina valmy released a message of defiance we have of the country i want to go to the rally with they detain me only not i want to make my position clear and one day i will tell my children and my grandchildren yes i was out there to say i disagree and all the bad things that happened to me happened while i was actively protesting this is what
12:12 am
matters to me most then as protesters started to gather in central moscow. first and his demonstration and a game of cat and mouse with the police reached its inevitable conclusion bundled into a police van with his supporters. chanting shame. the lexan of ali says that is a rest doesn't matter it's old but the people who turn out here in moscow and all around the country are protesting for their own futures i was many of the young crowds you find never around the rallies have been born and grown up in putin's russia and they're planning to boycott what they see as rigged elections in my. elections isn't fair the only prudent and other candidates are bipeds off with them in my opinion i haven't got my candidate because no one there was cancelled from the election so if you have only been allowed to run in the actions you are going
12:13 am
to see the result of yours which it was a. few here if any really think they'll be able to prevent what you may putin winning another landslide election victory dances darkness fell on a cold moscow they kept their chance of protest ringing into the gloom to reach alan's al-jazeera moscow. well for more on this we're joined in the studio by live to give or again she's a russian unlist that i.h.s. market a financial think tank thank you so much for joining us here on al-jazeera i mean i like sort of on the obviously knew that he was going to be arrested as soon as he showed up at the protests he also knows he's not running in the actual election what impact do you think any of this is going to have on the election on march in march which i think the results the results of which it seemed almost a given well is he set and his supporters know that they're not going to make much difference what they're trying to do its oil this elections for putin they want to
12:14 am
make sure that it's not smooth sailing that's why the main message is to avoid court this election's because they saying that. regard this your participation protein will be elected but if you boil court than at this entire exercise of affirming. that majority of russians support hootin will collapse for putin this is not an election he's it's not being contested by anybody for him this is an exercise to show that he is the most popular leader in a modern russia his lottery there are the people contesting this election is a candidate called samia sobchak was actually visiting agree with aleck's in the valley she thinks that actually you should run and present a proper opposition to putin but but sticking to the election in march when putin's been in power for eighteen years effectively he's looking at another six most likely how important is it for him to get the popular vote or to show both inside and outside of russia that he still is
12:15 am
a popular leader. it is what this popularity is what he's seeking this is a justification for his foreign policy for the explanation that he provides for did the mystic policy failures and we could qana mean basically saying that people support my vision my vision of bringing rebuilding strong brusha people share my explanation that the economic troubles we have is not our problem it is it is imposed by the west and it is very important to show that at least sixty seventy percent. turnover is secured if it's less it means that people silently send a message saying that you know my candidate but i am also aware that used totally controlled the political system the political field is closed for alternatives so i
12:16 am
choose not to vote but it almost sends the message then the democratic path for a change of power in russia i mean that option is almost nonexistent now effectively will to be to be honest i think we're judging these elections from the western perspective which do not really apply. russia doesn't really have any i mean well expressed organized political parties united russia which is a presidential party the largest the most dominant but it's a party that has merced itself with the state it has no ideology and the so-called contestants equally have no are. or competing views on the economy and so forth so the political field is completely closed to outsiders in a sense that there is no way of surprise elections the election is only an exercise whereby the the state and and which employs and provides
12:17 am
most of the jobs in the country ensures that people take part in this exercise and they approve they rubber of them the candidate that was picked by the elite in the kremlin whether that's putin or whoever comes after him it is a rubber stamping exercise rather than an election in the western sense and just very briefly if you can what impact do you think the demonstrations that we saw today which of course have been called four weeks ago what impact do you think they are actually going to have on the election do you think the election of our knees you know way of trying to effectively sabotage putin's elections using that's working well i think one possible outcome is that he's called for a boycott will affect the numbers that otherwise sinews of chuck. would have gathered also he is proving that he is showing that you have to continue fighting
12:18 am
you have to continue fighting corruption and perhaps he will present a threat to the storage fees if the economy continues to stay as weak as it is now will it give or give russia analyst thank you so much for having joined us. now the man in charge of the african union's anti corruption. dr that's nigerian president mohammad bihari says it's affecting development across the continent corruption reportedly costs africa fifty billion dollars a year it's the main focus of this year's african union summit in addis ababa mohammed though has more now from the ethiopian capital most of the day was spent on discussing is on financial reform of the african union you know wants to see itself moral past independently financed by its on them as it was a scheme in which it wants its member states to live a zero point two percent on imports and that money will be used to finance the programs operations and activities of the organization one president. over
