the premises of the university and it's still surrounded by paramilitary of course many of these students are terrified that something will happen to them during that night also today earlier today in members of the police. unit in uniform heavily armed even with the r.p.g. is a rocket propelled grenade shooting in the streets of amman in bull which is a neighborhood in the city of of of my now a capital there too apparently two people were killed there the policeman if they did there an apparently. when they precedented that they headed there today with his wife the vice president of honeymoon and thousands of followers in this caravan that they took all the way to mass the president there . talking about. peace however that's not what was happening here at the
10:09 am
university in the in the center of my now i work the students who were unarmed were pleading for their lives with their. paramilitary shooting from another from the other end of the barricades directly at these students twelve russian hackers have been indicted as part of the investigation into alleged interference in the twenty sixteen u.s. presidential election the announcement has led to calls for next week's planned meeting between donald trump and vladimir putin to a council jabatan see reports from washington d.c. 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 the department of justice 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
10:10 am
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's no allegation in this indictment that any american citizen committed a crime there's no allegation that the conspiracy changed the font count or affected 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
10:11 am
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 tea with the queen roadracing steinfeld briefed the president earlier this week before his trip to europe she ever chancy al-jazeera washington you know u.s. president donald trump's expected to face more protests in scotland where he's on the third and final leg of his u.k. trip tens of thousands of people turned out in cities across the u.k. on friday to voice their disapproval trump has no official engagements in scotland downs are expected to spend time playing golf at

10:13 am
your policies you're not you're not welcome in this country you know you know democratic and we believe climate change is happening and we need to do what together those reading it from a state visit to a known state was no enough simply a symbolic gesture no one saturday there's a very big demonstration planned in the scottish capital edinburgh a carnival of resistance all sorts of groups gathering to register their protest against the u.s. president but he won't be anywhere near that we're expecting him to be playing golf and he's turned very private resort some protesters might head they've been denied permission to fly the baby blimp the balloon of the president has a baby above the skies near the golf course but it could still put an appearance somewhere else but on friday a giant blimp depicting the u.s. president as a baby flew in the london as part of massive protests against his trip and he bought the reports from westminster. dole trumpet being told to avoid the center of
10:14 am
the british capital because if this. crowd's a so-called carnival of resistance marched against the world's most powerful leader that moscow a giant helium filled blimp of donald trump as a baby clutching a mobile phone. so many demonstrators believe he has an infant all grasp of politics they see him as a wrecking ball for race relations women's rights climate change and peace behind humor is a very serious message and that is. holding trump to account where highlighting the fact that his toxic hate fuels 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 well especially in the global south. as breaks it looms many also fear the british government will full british values in
10:15 am
the interests of u.s. trade deals maybe even a. lot of the american people about president trump right on the missile genny his contempt for democracies is embracing to take on these incredibly low volume allegedly did not find him alone i think that he found people yeah about. here today because i am deeply concerned about the direction of the united states and i opposed to trump's racism his homophobia as long. as i want him out of office i've joined protests in the states and i happened to be here today so i want to join and show that he does not represent us really. this isn't the first controversial leaders of is a guy who is the first. protests but they've really hasn't been anything quite like
10:16 am
this is very much a response to donald trump's unique and arguably divisive politics people here in the u.k. also questioning the health and the nature of the so-called special relationship between the u.s. and the u.k. people here wonder whether it's time to review that relationship now that donald trump's in the white house. few more vocally than the mayor of london who sanctioned the march and the blame one of the things that americans love of our city are the rights we have here the right to protest the right to have free speech the right to freedom of assembly and the idea that we would tell those rights because it may cause offense to president trump or somebody else i think americans would find objectionable why because their own constitution has the rights to freedom of speech freedom to protest freedom to assembly. president trump visit has been carefully choreographed to avoid his opponents choosing to fly around southern england by helicopter rather than risk of road journey they like me
