a major figure he came from the who these political wing and as the war continued the military wing and the more extreme wing of the movement really took over the overall decision maker for the who these are the monocle hoofy who is generally recognized as the leader of the hoofy movement some odd came from the group's political wing. of the malek's half brother muhammad is affectively sort of the the ruler of the who controlled areas of yemen from son and his full brother the holic oversees security and some on the ground a lot of the country so realistically when you look at the structure of the group he was a political figure a figurehead who was overseeing an organization which was meant to bring the who these together with the g.p.c. the party of ali abdullah saleh the former president himself was killed last december by the who fees so what we're really seeing is
a we're doing out of many political figures an increasing consolidation within the movement of military hardliners so it so again he's someone who had some significance he was symbolically important to the movement this will be a blow to them but overall it makes very little difference that the movement overall the u.s. senate panel has narrowly backed the nomination of cia director mike pompei or as secretary of state republican rand paul changed his vote earlier saying that he would oppose the appointment that gave him pay or the eleven votes needed for the twenty one member panel his nomination now goes to a full senate foes. former u.s. president. george h.w. bush has been admitted to hospital the ninety three year old is at a facility in houston texas contracting an infection that spread to his blood a spokesman said that he is responding to treatment to the piers to be recovering the former president was taken to hospital a day after attending his wife's funeral barbara bush died
a week ago. just days before a rare summit between rival leaders on the korean peninsula al-jazeera has been taking a look at life inside north korea we've been granted rare access to the capital pyongyang our diplomatic editor james bays takes a firsthand look at the impact of international sanctions. north korea has been targeted with tougher and tougher sanctions by the u.s. and the international community of a what persuaded the country's leadership to pursue a diplomatic course and what effect to the having on ordinary people in this isolated country. we've been taken to a department store in the center of pyongyang despite the international sanctions the shelves here of full we managed to visit a number of shops in the city center all were up marketplaces catering to the elite
we found no shortages and luxury items like chocolates and bottles of alcohol that were clearly smuggled in in defiance of the sanctions the official line is that foreign imports have been replaced by increase domestic production. do you believe i don't know why others around us are starving us dear reporter when we return please tell them we are indomitable no matter what thank sions are upon us. the only medical facility we were taken to was a gleaming new hospital most of the equipment here was imported clearly a problem in the future when spare parts become needed we were shown the eyeglasses which is subsidized for north korean citizens you know what it will make us what's the name of the north korean brand oh our. hero yet not yet not ok but a recent u.n. report says the humanitarian situation particularly in rural areas outside the capital is poor before traveling to north korea i spoke to the un's top

have arrested a man that they believe deliberately started a fire that killed eighteen people the blaze tore through a three story building in the southern city of ching on state media says that the building was used as a karaoke it's reporting that the suspect lit the fire and blocked the only entrance with his motorbike but the life of an artist can often be a struggle but for writers and musicians in south sudan the lack of copyright laws makes it even harder to earn a living hell morgan reports from juba. it takes days sometimes weeks for one of south sudan most popular musicians emanuel to write record and produce his songs despite his dedication he benefits very little from the finished product. visibly. copyright law does not exist so we musicians we spend time money
and energy to produce but. there's no any law that protects all right like in other countries neighboring countries like uganda so when musicians produce music at least to earn something out of the work. but. emanuel is one of more than fifty artist in south sudan all facing the same problem musicians writers and poets are all suffering because there are no laws in place to protect their work now many prefer to have their work produced in other countries where there is copyright legislation. where in south sudan and south hundreds and i too have a comprise the sound system here. i wanted to try to publish in uganda i would publish them you're going to give me that but he would i would still maintain that i didn't you know i'm soliciting this poet who is publishing in your grammar there
are no distribution companies in south sudan it's not seen as a worthwhile investment but that doesn't mean artists works are not being sold distributing the work of art without their permission isn't difficult you bring a stick or drive to meet a fellow here in the markets and to the music you want he'll cop it and you'll pay and it'll cost less than a dollar then you can reproduce songs using the music and the lyrics and the artists don't even know that their music is being sold on government has taken little interest in the arts and literature sector especially after a civil war broke out in twenty thirteen tens of thousands of people have been killed and a third of the country's twelve million population displaced but the government says it is now working on a bill and forming a council to protect the intellectual property of artists will be formed soon by the by the approval of the cabinet so that it. will become. and then at this same time will confirm that we have a body that we can give him we can give this body
a policy with these these. laws so that we we talked about protection. for emmanuel and other artists this provides some hope that in the future it is they who will benefit financially from their words and music not an unknown third party. people more going on to their own jubal. for the first time a court in spain has authorized the exhibition of bodies from the country's most controversial monument the valley of the fall in this vast mausoleum where the fascist dictator general franco is buried along with thousands of victims of spain's civil war charlie rangel reports. sixty kilometers outside madrid lies spain's largest mass grave cut into the mountainside the valley of the fallen is where dictator francisco franco lies buried around him tens of thousands of
