6:11 am
up by sticking to the production limits agreed in twenty sixteen the main gathering was delayed by an hour as a last ditch diplomacy trying to bridge the gap by the time the ministers sat down around the table a compromise was taking shape. as a one point one point one to one which was the proposal from russia coming into this week as well as doing lower numbers were eliminated yesterday so we're in the one million. nominal figure to be distributed. amongst the country poor countries the final communique when it came four hours later deliberately avoided specific quotas for the number of barrels and focused instead on saying that the extra output would simply restore full compliance with that original twenty sixteen production limit the president of the opec conference was asked again and again about allocation which countries will be allowed to increase their oil production to bring opec to one hundred percent compliance with the declaration of cooperation
6:12 am
and again and again he refused to put specific figures on it and he also hinted candidly about the tensions that still remain within the group how is it allocated i think that is not that has not yet yet decided to do to the fact that that there are differences between between certain countries and we would not make sense if we look at the production to a country that cannot cannot produce it so we are voided i think having at locations from that prospect of the minister invited analysts and journalists to do the. arithmetic for themselves see until we know the specifics it's kind of a mystery increase it's an increase but we don't know how much. you know the minister today said you know you do the math but it's hard to do the math unless you get some of those details on saturday the expounded opec plus group of nations meets here and all eyes will be on russian reaction. al-jazeera opec in vienna it's

6:15 am
c.h.p. called in its own bands. while the pro kurdish h.t.t.p. down stay in opposition to the other tell you. we can get into millions of prunes a variety so we do it on the streets by looking into the people of our eyes by touching them. here we just tell everyone how it is with no exaggeration of what we're telling them just the truth in our project. all the opposition parties know they have little chance of unseating president but they also know polls suggest that his ruling ak party might lose its parliament to majority and even forced into a second round runoff for the presidents. but i feel. now at about six to seven percent of the electorate have yet to decide how are they going to vote according to the latest polls but that's about three and a half million people and in a race as tight as this every vote. but it's an al-jazeera has stumbled. on

all i'm hearing is good journalism on air and online. a comeback a quick look at top stories now u.s. president donald trump has defended his zero tolerance immigration policy following an outcry of the separation of families on the mexico border. the u.n. human rights office says the rule of law in venezuela is virtually absent forces detailed more than five hundred killings carried out by government forces which have gone uninvestigated and unpunished and u.s. officials have called on the saudi led coalition to pull back its campaign to take
6:20 am
control of yemen strategically important data thousands of civilians have been fleeing the area to escape the fighting. on all the stories we're following donald trump is threatening to impose a twenty percent tariff on all e.u. car imports unless it lifts its trade barriers and the european union imposed billions of dollars worth of juices on hundreds of u.s. goods in retaliation to u.s. steel an aluminum tariffs imposed in june the foka has more. tit for tat tariffs from friday the e.u. will slap hefty levies on three point two billion dollars worth of u.s. goods including well below the merican brams davidson motorcycle space judi's of twenty five percent bourbon orange juice crab reason peanut butter have also been hit so too has american. u.s. companies have enjoyed major growth in europe in recent years but many smaller companies fear their products will now become too expensive to export. the e.u.
6:21 am
is responding to donald trump's decision earlier this month to introduce tariffs of twenty five percent on european steel and ten percent on alimony and trump said the measures are meant to protect national security interests e.u. commission president jiang called juncker said the move makes no sense to trade to believing. trust. too much at stake the decision to push tariffs goes against it in fact it goes against all logic at least. the e.u. says it's also identified another four billion dollars in u.s. products for further tariffs if the world trade organization court where it's lodged a complaint against the us rules in the e.u. favor the european union is carefully steering clear of the expression trade war largely over fears about where these tit for tat measures could end up instead the e.u. is referring to it as
6:22 am
a rebalancing measure still this is about making as much noise as possible about sending a symbolic message to the white house by targeting some of america's most iconic brands donald trump said he's now considering introducing twenty percent tariffs on european cars but analysts say anything further measures against the e.u. could harm the u.s. produces in the long run. it's not something smart enough not to go too far he knows very well but if you start the tradable the american pharmacy voted him will be up in arms when they see where we can call isn't selling as well globally as it was before. but damage may already have been done the use now looking for alternative markets in australia and new zealand major producers of b. wheat and corn putting longstanding trade ties between the us and e.u. under mounting strain barker al-jazeera london. well police in india say they are questioning several suspects after the gang rape of five female charity workers
6:23 am
in a remote region in the east of the country they say they were abducted while performing a play highlighting human trafficking in the region and raped at gunpoint the women and now under police protection in a shelter after being threatened with violence if they went to the police serious sexual assault is a major problem in india with thirty nine thousand rapes reported in two thousand and sixteen alone well joining me now in the studio is. the founder of up an e. grassroots organization working to end sex trafficking of women in india thank you very much for taking the time to come in and speak to us first of all the the women that were attacks that the five activists why do you think they were targeted. i think that there is a growing culture of impunity on rape and sexual violence in india women are getting increasingly devalued and targeted for sexual violence if they go out in
6:24 am
public places and these women were obviously activists would go on to do a play against sex trafficking in a village in an area from where girls are being trafficked for in a huge in huge numbers in fact the state where they were practicing this plea is one of the biggest source areas for sex trafficking in india and so they obviously were standing up to a whole nexus of traffickers who are part of the mafia some connected to the village and some connected to the police. so just from from your expertise your experience in working on these types of cases you this wasn't a random attack this was more organized it was more organized and i think what's happening in india is that this trip of course is to target activists who are working against sexual violence against sex trafficking or rape or profit as i call
6:25 am
it to and but increasingly in the last few years in india what's been happening is that creep has been going up the numbers have been going up the ages have been coming down very recently there was the rape of an eight year old girl in kashmir age by the caretaker of her temple along with four police officers who raped her and just before that a you're a few months before that there was a rape of another girl a little girl by an elected official of the ruling party in u.b. and when the girl decided to go and complain her father was arrested and murdered in a police station so along with comments which devalue women in public places there has also been target traipse of muslims and islets and also more than indian women you may know about the reap of the woman who was going back home in a bus after watching a movie. this is the daily the daily basis of course this but this was back in two thousand and twelve now on this this was the point at which suddenly the world paid attention i mean it's important to say that these sort of sexual assaults attacks
6:26 am
happen in every country in the world but there has been this particular spotlight on india can you point to any positive changes since since that time so after that what happened was that all of us marched on the streets you know you see this the poster of the reeves protests and we managed to get a very good lawyer by april two thousand and thirteen against all forms of sexual assault including rape what has happened is after that there was another government which got elected and that government has been particularly miss arjun istic in its attitude to women they've been cutting budgets for women and girls their own elected officials have been making very sexist comments and almost hate speech against women for being out in public places non-producing for children each of aiding the wrong clothes and therefore deserving rape and it's clear and some of their own members have reaped women and got away with impunity so what's happening is that this culture of impunity along with the sexist comments has made women fair
6:27 am
game and this time of course they've gone one step further where they've actually you know raped girls who went to perform with st louis against against sex trafficking so you know this is huge and the number of freebsd that have gone up has been huge so that's what makes india different from other countries it makes it closer to congo now the kind of sexual violence that we're seeing and last year the national crime records bureau said that the drips of children went up by two percent of children and of adult women by twelve percent this is these figures are . these figures speak for themselves but they're absolutely shocking clearly this is something that pervades society at all levels you've described politicians you've described business people even the police themselves how do you even begin to prevent and tackle this sort of violent crime against women when it's happening . you know everywhere in two ways one is that we need to end the culture of
6:28 am
impunity so if there are people who are from the ruling party they need to be punished the second thing which needs to be done is that we need any kind of hate speech against women any sexist comments devaluing women also to be by the. oh it was so interesting to talk to you really appreciate issues. from the organization up me up thank you for coming in thank you. the man who claims to be the leader of i still in indonesia has been sentenced to death for his involvement in a series of bombings judges say i'm on our door ramadan who's been in prison since two thousand and ten masterminded the attacks from his cell step vassal reports from jakarta security was tied to the verdict at the court in south africa after hundreds of police and soldiers were on guard among a black man was convicted of planning a gun and bomb attack on
