students at new get i was national antonymous university were freed. the cardinal. negotiated the release with gunmen. who pleaded for her life during the siege came out and live. we fought back with stones and mortars but they shot at us with high caliber weapons a k forty seven and i don't know what the priest has come out with a white flag to the ceasefire. this student says they all thought they would be killed. at some point we didn't have any more mortars or molotov cocktails to. i didn't think we'd come out alive. for hours families sang and prayed the access near the church was blocked by police while heavily armed gunmen shot at the students. it was a desperate wait to see their children florida says she's also afraid because her
home has been under attack these past days. and see what the barrier their last hours have been tragic we haven't slept or eaten but we were at on a grateful to god our children only wanted which forms. the government calls protesters terrorists and coup plotters it blames them for the deaths of policemen and three months of bloody confrontations around the country but rights groups say the majority of attacks are perpetrated by government forces the seed has left many got one families devastated but the question is whether the government will continue with the use of force or will sit at the negotiating table this week. cardinal brain is said despite the curry has also been targeted they want to resume peace talks between protesters and the government on tuesday however they are worried about the safety of the students and their families. we will also
continue to conduct negotiations with the government so the lives of the students and that of their families are respected. but the lives of these students and their families may continue to be a risk for protesters say they will continue to fight to topple precedent that they guy. and while government forces do nothing to arrest the gunman in plain clothes and heavily armed shoot in plain daylight with impunity. i guess sanchez i just see them and now when he got out. jennifer mccoy is a political science professor at georgia state university she says off the months of august the government now seems to be taking back control i think that the turning point actually is that the government the piers to have taken back most of the areas that had been held by protesters and dismantled barricades throughout the country and in other cities and now the university the main university campus in managua had been you know one of the last strongholds and so for the moment at
least it looks like the government has reasserted its control and by using these games these paramilitaries are gangs that they call to it as in nicaragua so the question is is what will happen next and obviously the catholic church has been a mediator has led dialogues and will continue i think to try to mediate and the question is what the people will do will they turn out in stronger protest after this horrible siege of the university or will they be cowed in fact and stay home from intimidation because of this violence well in the long issue is that daniel ortega along with his wife have been in power now since two thousand and six and so the last dozen years and they have concentrated power in their own hands over that time period in prevented opposition parties opposition candidates in some cases
from even contesting elections there. courts of election fraud so demands changed from. konami demand to one about politics about restoring a more open transparent government and asking for dinner or take it to resign he is obviously resisting that call and so that's the standoff that we're seeing in the country right now. a cube or look set to reshape its government and create a new constitution with the aim of boosting its economy in the form of the one thousand nine hundred six charter would split the roles of the head of government and head of state changes are set to recognize the free market and private property the national assembly are expected to approve the plans next week before a referendum later this year. our new era of friendship has begun be between once rival neighbors in the horn of africa

air and used tear gas as anti-government protests spread to several cities. an eerie calm israel agrees to a cease fire in gaza after it launched the most intense rather airstrikes since the twenty fourteen war. haiti's former prime minister a sudden resignation after violent protests against fuel price rises. and on sana hamas with all the sports lead spectating high end both france and croatia as the countdown continues to the well cup final. a curfew has been imposed in the iraqi city of basra that's after police they used water cannon and tear gas on protesters who tried to storm a government building police people rather have been demonstrating over the past week against high living costs at a lack of basic services it appears that many phone lines have been cut and
internet service has been disrupted across the country the government is blaming sabotage a spokesman says that normal services are expected to return in a few hours what you will. see is to provide security for all iraqis and also to listen to all the demands and salute all the protesters the peaceful and the civilized to state their demands in a civilized manner reflecting the nobility of iraqis and their country but those who assault the institutions of the state and the security forces and its investments disrupt the aspirations of the people and should be held to account earlier we spoke to were ahmed rushdie an advisor to the iraqi parliament. hold on demonstrations that actually happened because of the narco. dr patricia tonight before church special insulting governments and many in bus i'm on nothing yet and mega think you're going to be most important in this time and it's not only
targeting governments it's also targeting people it's going to books which seems that iraq has actually sells them looking forward to have some sort of a change happen by the political blocs not only do they are going to be goes no actually the iraqi people want to travel to know that. the political blocs actually they have influence and inside the iraqi government so there is no way that you can only talk to the iraqi government also to make a pressure on both the political blocs is no parliament and the constitution actually allowed the prime minister and most of the major to stake its according to could be put to should it's legal it's going to to show. it can happen to during his a journalist based in the role of an iraqi city of a bail she joins us now via skype from athens tonight good side here with us as
we've been reporting these protests have spread beyond basra now to all the towns and cities across iraq including the capital baghdad how do you think this is going to play out will the government have to introduce a state of emergency. well it's very nice of them to work to prime minister howard he at the moment is doing really a carrot and stick on the one hand he sends in troops and and even the best troops that he has on them that are really. trained to fight isis and on the other hand he's promising to ten thousands of jobs and three the mill a billion dollars of aid to basra. what is really going on in iraq at the moment is this really about the standard of living lack of opportunity. and yes it is for big parts and discuss been happening for i think about eight or nine years every summer because in that area in basra it's about fifty degrees it
goes over fifty degrees and every summer again there's nothing left enough an interest in tea if you don't have money you don't have a generator i have a soup people really suffer. and then this is de an area of iraq where all the income comes from ninety five percent of the iraqi income comes from the oil from us from so people are saying why don't we have jobs it's all foreigners working there so give us the chops and as for the electricity we also see a role of iran in these iran has been providing electricity and water for the past a years on and off. but this summer and it has caught they say because it has not been date but it seems that there might be a relation to the problems there are between iraq and sorry iran and washington over the nuclear deal it could be that iran is trying to make. a signal
to america look if you are not working with us if you leave us hanging like this. we can do a lot of problems. in the region all right so what does the government need to do to put a lid on all of this we talked about the possible imposition of a state of emergency that's not going to fix it but it's not going to make people any happier there what does it have to do in the medium to long term. well the interesting point here really is that if you see who have has been targeted it's all the shiite groups although she had militias out all the parties their buildings have been put on fire so it's the people that are really angry with politics now so it isn't the government that's going to solve this it's going to be much more it has to be the shiite leaders all of them together now have to find a solution. they are religious and a leader ayatollah sistani he has already said what is happening here it's
a shame because this is very much area people are not getting what they should get so he's giving up the signal do something about it now jobs is going to be very difficult because government has only has so many jobs that they can give out most of the international oil companies do not have space for all of these iraqis that often are not well educated. it's a very big problem but it is really all starts and ends with electricity with the services so put back india electricity and very important also put back in internet's cutting internet makes people feel we're back in the dark ages where back in saddam's time where any time you spoke out you your head would be pushed back on the descent so this is the main things i would say judith good to talk to many thanks indeed for being with us. and israel has reportedly accepted an
egyptian brokered cease fire with hamas off of the latest round of violence in gaza the agreement came after israel launched what it says were the most powerful daytime airstrikes since the twenty four teen girls award two palestinian teenagers were killed they've been three months of protests near gaza's border fence with israel at least one hundred thirty eight palestinians have been shot dead by israeli forces and israel has closed the only crossing point for goods and supplies into the territory israel's security cabinet is holding an emergency meeting to discuss the escalating situation prime minister benjamin netanyahu has been under pressure to deal with the crisis al-jazeera is bernard smith reports now from gaza . the cease fire holds but it papers over major widening cracks in the relationship between the israeli authorities and how much that runs garza the fundamental problem is that gaza has been under siege for around twelve years now
