middle of april maryon asuncion has joins us live now from managua marianna what's the latest information you have for us. well peter until now the information still very sketchy apparently it's between ten and eleven students that have been wounded in this shootout that began earlier today students that apparently were an armed inside the premises of the university of new that are one and on the other end is near the barricades outside of the border of the university a group of armed men who looked like paramilitary they were masked they were carrying the forty seventh high caliber rifles they were they had radios and flak jackets and they seemed organized and determined as we've been able to see in the video now we understand that at least six students have been taken to
a hospital and there are four still taken refuge at a church that is inside the premises of the campus is like i said in the video these paramilitary looking determined to shoot at these at these students and now we've been able to read but ours is tweet just a few minutes ago he's the president of the interim merican commission for human rights who said that the church is still under siege there are two journalists international journalists inside the church and he also says there's three serious fractures he's talked about the poor a priest we're not sure if a priest has been wounded in there also through the social media we understand we are hearing that doctors were trying to get. close to the area to give
help to the wounded and they were also attacked by the paramilitary still. apparently the ambulances have not been able to reach some of the wounded inside the university prime's why has this gone so badly just in the past few hours because there was the mother's day protest in may gunmen opened fire on demonstrators nineteen people were killed then but this demonstration or how this demonstration began on thursday thursday into friday i think it was pretty peaceful so where did the shift change occur it was it was pretty peaceful yesterday we didn't hear any shootings here but there were some there were four policemen killed in an area in the great lake off of the now if we got our way up out of here. today there was this caravan of
supporters of the president i mean not a big up going to the messiah with the president on the one and i think we lost the caravan they were to the city of masaya the city of najaf so at some point peter and the two groups face what we are hearing from the find on the protesters is that this group of of supporters of pro-government supporters started a very. again haven't seen these students aren't however this is how this shootout started but not only here in ma now what the university we are hearing as well that now in the field of math or in the neighborhood of mourning in war there is people in the so she'll need the crying for help because they say there are paramilitary in that neighborhood shooting as well. come back to us if
there are any more developments but in the meantime thank you. twelve russian hackers alleged hackers have been indicted as part of the ongoing investigation into potential collusion in the twenty sixteen us presidential election the announcement has led to calls for the cancellation the immediate cancellation of next week's summit meeting between donald trump and let me put in she have returns he has more from washington the deputy attorney general said the twelve alleged russian intelligence officers hacked into the clinton presidential campaign and disseminated stolen information the goal of the conspirators was never in fact an election in addition to the public addresses alleges state election boards were hacked and the details of five hundred thousand voters stolen among those subsequently in touch with what the d.o.j. says was an online persona created by the russians to help spread the information was someone in touch with the trump campaign that person according to the indictment didn't seem very impressed with the information provided and there's no
evidence that the person knew they were speaking to alleged russian spies there is no allegation in this indictment that any american citizen committed a crime there's no allegation that the conspiracy changed the folk can't or affect in any election result. that was seized upon by the trumpet ministration would release a statement that said today's charges include no allegations of knowing involvement by anyone on the campaign and new allegations that the alleged hacking affected the election result this is consistent with what we have been saying all along earlier in the day donald trump it said he would ask about the allegations and i don't think you'll have any gee i did it i did it you got me there will be a perry mason here i don't think but you never know what happens right but i will absolutely firmly ask the question and the allegations are allegations possibly never to be proven the accused russians are highly unlikely to appear before a u.s. grand jury to defend themselves over some democrats say the summit should possibly be called off there should be no one on one meeting between this president and mr
putin there needs to be other americans in the room secondly the president and his team are not willing to make the facts of this indictment a top priority of the meeting in helsinki and the summit should be cancelled but deputy attorney general suggested these indictments were to come as a surprise to all from as he took team with the queen rode rosenstein said he had briefed the president earlier this week before his trip to europe you have a chance the al-jazeera washington. times with the u.k. are at the quotes highest level of special just a day after setting up controversy in an interview with the sun newspaper in it he suggested plans for bricks that were too soft and if they stand the u.k. shouldn't expect a trade deal with the u.s. on friday mr trump dismissed that report as fake news jon a hole is a means of. a day that ended for donald trump in the company of queen elizabeth the
second had begun under a cloud of official british dismay at the u.s. president's comments in a newspaper interview for two countries that supposedly enjoy a special relationship this was no way to treat a friend donald trump told the rightwing sun newspaper that the reason may's plan for leaving the european union was a bad one and that a trade deal between the u.s. and the u.k. was off the table he also said to reason may's nemesis boris johnson would make a great prime minister johnson resigned this week as foreign secretary overheard new breaks its strategy and with that the pin was pulled on a diplomatic hand grenade looked like a deliberate attack on may's already fragile leadership and then a massive about turn in face to face meetings to resume a we're told had a chance to explain her plans more fully to donald trump it must all have made sense once the brakes at process is concluded and perhaps the u.k.
has left the e.u. i don't know what they're going to do but whatever you do is ok with me that's your decision whatever you're going to do is ok with us just make sure we can trade together that's all that matters if the reason may was relieved she didn't show it will be no limit to the possibility of us doing trade deals around the rest of the world once we leave the european union on the basis of the agreement that was made here at checkers in that i put forward to the european union and off the trumps went to meet the queen. by the time they arrived here at windsor castle for tea with the queen it seemed the whole few rory had a visiting u.s. president had gone from issuing unprecedented insults to a british prime minister to having it all swept away in a little over twelve hours mr trump simply dismissed an official on the record british newspaper interview as fake news. not the tea with the queen wasn't itself
a potential protocol mind field. but the band played on in the event appears to have passed without incident a big fan of the british monarch this perhaps the highlight of trump's visit so far for the queen who's met a dozen u.s. presidents the occasion perhaps less unforgettable join a whole al-jazeera windsor and a joint blimp depicting the u.s. president as a baby has been flying over london during protests against his visit tens of thousands of people demonstrated against mr trump on his use such as immigration race relations and climate change surveys by the british polling organization you golf from two thirds of britons believe trump is a poor or terrible president where holding trump to account where highlighting the fact that his toxic hate fueled politics and his policies that having a devastating impact on people not just in the u.s. . but in the u.k. and all over the world especially in the global south. to try and race is on his
own. and i want him out of office i've joined protests in the states and i happened to be here today so i wanted to join and. so that he does not represent us really opposition leader jeremy corbyn joined the protest voicing his disapproval of mr trump's visit. fundamentally the message that goes out today from london together here in london that you remember this country on this issue was interest. you know i mean you know for a low of justice the division for you guys you know how to when racism is such a very very you know it's you know the low of the day still to come here on al-jazeera. and one hundred people are killed in suicide attacks in
pakistan on the exact day a former prime minister returns and is arrested plus. over there a. battle or. the child crying well separated from the parents on the u.s. mexican border went viral the family is finally back together again. and that's right. the weather sponsored by qatar airways hello there being rather wet force in georgia recently we look at the satellite picture we can see the cloud here it's also been with us over parts of turkey and into azerbaijan and it's all interesting its way eastwards but being replenished so more wet weather here as we head through saturday and into sunday and actually some days looking a bit wetter and that area of rain just pushes a little bit further towards the west so more of us in turkey will see that rain
there's also the risk of seeing a bit of it in ankara as well towards the south the draw as you might expect for many of us here beirut about thirty degrees and still pretty hot in baghdad at forty six now here in doha all temperature really depends on the wind direction at this time of year because it comes from the east that it brings in the humidity and the temperatures are actually lower but it feels very sticky and that's what's happening on saturday so forty four degrees will be our maximum but it will feel quite. sticking quite a bit of humidity around but on sunday the winds change that we firing down from the north i'm as a drawing direction for the yeah i would dry as the temperatures can get that the highest say forty seven degrees maybe even higher will be our maximum for a sunday downfall was the southern parts of africa loss of areas of rain here they are all working their way eastwards and dragging down the temperatures as they do so as well so durban eighteen degrees will be our maximum on saturday the rain clears the sunday and then we drop to fifteen or sixteen the weather sponsored by cattle waste.

islamic state says it killed a political candidate at a rally the other attack was at a rally in bonn news in the country's northwest the candidate there was not physically hurt but he was angry. they say there is a threat to our current iranian i want to ask this television channel that if you have such an information you should tell us how do you get this information and where these people come from in the middle of the violence the former pakistani prime minister flew first class to law or where federal police were waiting to take him and his daughter mari him to a prison in roll pending an anti corruption court convicted the sharifs on july seventh stealing money from the treasury to pay for a luxury lifestyle corruption first revealed in the release of the panama papers now us to reach has said he will appeal his conviction and ten year prison term sharif has been banned from politics for lunch the judiciary is set on rooting out
corruption in pakistani politics but neither fact may mean anything to pakistanis who want their government to work for them and are dying to make that happen. in jordan al jazeera. staying with a story gen is being a saw says now is sharif is determined to clear his name. absolutely he's making a point i mean he could have stayed back in london as you say but he had i think he's come a long way since he was a protege of general zia as your earlier reporter pointed out. general zia was a major military dictator as you and your viewers must know and sharif was his prodigy and his beginnings his political beginnings were not part of what i would say focus on the democratic political polity but he has really come a long way since then and i think part of that was he was schooled by been received by the late benazir bhutto in the last election before she died he was going to
boycott those polls under the then military dictator general pervez musharraf and benazir bhutto prevailed upon him not to boycott the elections because her stand was a few boycott then what you have to have it gave me the political process and so he understood that he failed with it so naturally i think it was a great political death to benazir bhutto who was once was a great political rival and i think his coming back to pakistan is in a way kind of to make atones own man for his fost. misdeeds towards her when he was in power and she was out of. there was that history as well . as really soldiers are shocked that a fifteen year old palestinian boy on the border with gaza thirty others were injured in the latest friday protests one hundred thirty seven palestinians are being killed in the past three months along the fence with israel but in its midst is on the gaza israel border. so the friday protests continue despite israel's
decision to close the carom abu salim crossing that's the main crossing for industrial goods into gaza israel did it he said because it wanted the protesters to stop sending over in same three burning balloons they float over the border and they end up in some israeli feel some setting fire to israeli crops israeli snipers have been trying to shoot them out of the skies of the balloons are still going over today but they've not been having much success these reilley snipers and in the meanwhile officials from hamas and other groups in gaza have been in cairo for talks with egyptian security officials hammer said those talks are some of the most successful they have had with the egyptians addressing the humanitarian concerns in gaza don't give any more details than that though another group islamic jihad it says that egypt has agreed to increase electricity supplied in to gaza and that egypt will also keep the rougher crossing open for the super foreseeable future that's the main crossing between egypt and gaza vital lifeline really for people in
