5:04 pm
on public bus to commute from one end to out of the end of the city that hasn't been any bus plying on the road the bus owners have also gone on strike they said we don't feel secure plus a majority of the bus don't have the fitness study pick at many of our most of the drivers don't have valid driver's license and this is a police crackdown week so they're scared to feel like their boss will be seen but this is causing a real problem for the commuter in the city that people are relying on try will wreck shows or school or stall even walking to and fro from work back and forth plus the situation on the ground as far as journalists community goes they're very tense what happened last two days deadly five journalists were beaten up among them was journalist. he was very badly beaten up by the pro-government supporters in front of the police without any intervention the same thing happened to a few other journalists there was no intervention for a similar incident happened by five journalists was big enough female journalist

5:06 pm
everything put together this has been a negative point at least from public point of view in social media and people we talked in the street that these were children of thirteen years from the one years old the government shouldn't have cracked down like this and make the pain and some people say that they have been too long in the state average people who are suffering to commute back and forth but but generally most population in the thirty eight with that we spoke to where in favor of this student thing that we need some sort of traffic that's the plain considering everything we have to see if the students again able to mobilize and cut. and what happened to them not only the traffic issues. all right we'll leave it there ten we chant real life we're staring back and we have you stay safe as you continue to fall on this story for us now a tsunami warning has just been lifted in the indonesian islands of lombok and bali the warning was put in place after a magnitude seven earthquake struck off the coast of long island just over two
5:07 pm
hours ago and this is the same ireland where a trauma last week killed sixteen people and hundreds and injured hundreds of others dozens of families lost their homes was steadfast and joins us now from indonesia's capital jakarta so step what are you hearing there about this. yes exactly it's one week after that cultural earthquake hits lombok and now than it has been reported again on lombok island and also on bali it was very strongly felt on both islands a lot of tourists also on those islands at the moment in the peak season a lot of all tolled damage reported from the small of villages in the north of lombok and all to the west of lombok but the real accent of the damage will only getting clearer in the morning because it's already night there and most of the authorities have been busy trying to evacuate people from the north and also to western beaches of lombok because of the tsunami warning the tsunami warning has
5:08 pm
now been lifted but a small a very tiny piece to nami has happened of not more than fifty centimeters high but a lot of concerns of course about the people who have been in those villages also already destroyed by last week's earthquake many of them were still sleeping and staying on the streets because they were too afraid to go back into their houses but of course that you can imagine the panic and trauma for these people going through all this again and this earthquake actually is a lot wider the area as wide as also was strongly felt at the international airport which was closed for a while that is now open again for passengers to fly out of lombok and given that the this quake it appears to be stronger than they do in the previous one was what's the sense that you're getting of of how well prepared or equipped to the government is to deal with this. well i have to say i just came back from a long walk to be honest after the first earthquake and the government is really
5:09 pm
very much in control of the situation there unfortunately of course there is a lot of experience with earthquakes here in indonesia but i have to assist them that they immediately sat up so there were a lot of rescue workers on the scene at the moment at that time and also there was this a thousandth of more than a thousand tourists were actually in there climbing a volcano last week when the earthquake hit and they all had to be evacuated and one person that idea but more than a thousand people were rescued safely from that will kill you know of course now there's a lot of concern about more damage so of course the government and your storage of scrambling to get to these people as soon as possible steverson life first there in jakarta egypt says its military has killed fifty two people and arrested dozens in an ongoing crackdown in the sinai region egypt launched an offensive in february to target armed groups in the sinai the nahr delta and the western desert the campaign

5:11 pm
the jewish nation state cannot be ensured for generations to come. therefore we will establish today a special ministry a committee that will advance those ties and these commitments and in parallel will also recognize those who serve in the israeli military and security services from all religions and its new cities andrew symonds has more now from west jerusalem. really benjamin netanyahu statement before the cabinet meeting doesn't move things on the committee he mentioned was already known about what it's going to do is a bit hazy and there is no breakthrough in talks with the minorities he did make a reference to the nation state nor remaining in place to mend it nor will he certainly won't get rid of it but he did say that it is democratic and that was an address not to the druze as such it was to all the israeli jews who were present at that vast demonstration they just came along some just passing by wanted to see
5:12 pm
what was happening others intent on having their say apart from the political parties who some would regard as the usual suspects attaching to this sort of resistance to the government now where does this all lead well more protests and more pressure on benjamin netanyahu but it would appear he will continue to resist as long as he has the right numbers on the side in the knesset the parliament which is in recess right now but will be pulled back for days discussion of this on wednesday no voting rights there that now we have a situation where the security cabinet will be meeting later on sunday afternoon and discussing the whole issue of gaza and the u.n. special envoy nicole i'm led in off who has been desperately trying to get agreement between egypt of the house in gaza and israel well the situation there is that there is some sort of proposal on the desk of ministers here in
5:13 pm
jerusalem and we will may well see some sort of indicator from these rated later on as to what happens unclear what the viewpoint is there are some optimistic opinions coming out of gaza or it would seem and indeed possibly kyra but nothing really in print yet nothing publicly that is to suggest that. going to happen whether it's going to fail with just carry on in the way. of the u.s. government denied having anything to do with an explosion that venezuela's president says want to tell was an attack on his life national security adviser john bolton says nicolas maduro accusations are unfounded with respect to what happened last afternoon could be a lot of things from a pretext set up by the itself to something else he's made accusations accusing the outgoing president of columbia responsibility of what he calls the extreme right
5:14 pm
wing in venezuela that means the vast opposition to his authoritarian rule and he's blamed financer is in the united states these are things he's said before and you have to take them for what they're worth if the government of venezuela has hard information that they want to present that would show a potential violation of u.s. criminal law we'll take a serious look at it but in the meantime i think what we really should focus on is the corruption and the oppression of the majority in venezuela u.s. national security advisor john bolton that will the duro was speaking at a military parade in the capital caracas when the blasts interrupted the event mike hanna reports on that. that's the life boat cost of the ceremony on national television the camera begins to shake and president maduro looks into the as explosions before the cut. soldiers who had been on parade or seeing the in panic number reported to be injured in the blasts. only investigation as evidence
5:15 pm
that shows those that didn't in the constitution of the go in the public knew. that a group calling itself the last day for and their last claimed responsibility in a series of tweets this one with the phrase time is running out a few hours after the attack president maduro addressed the nation saying right wing groups within the country were responsible but also accusing the colombian president. of involvement there looking for america i have to inform you that some of those who carried out the attack against me today have already been apprehended and they are now being processed in nothing although the they tried to assassinate me and i have no doubt that everything points to the right the venezuelan ultra right in alliance with the colombian ultra right and that the name of juan manuel santos is behind this attempt president maduro praying to victory in elections earlier this year but his political opponents insisted the process was rigged many

airliners to iran a day before u.s. sanctions are re-imposed thirteen of twenty eight planes four from the franco italian company have landed in iran iranian leaders say the same sions are endangering lives by blocking new aircraft as well as spare parts for its aging fleet. iran signed a five hundred thirty six million dollar deal with eighty on air bus and boeing of already pulled out of iran during the ninety day wind down period after donald trump pulled out of the iran nuclear deal iran and was planning to buy thirty eight billion dollars worth of new jets from them zain has more from tehran. well it has to be said any time something like this happens the delivery of new aircraft it is a positive thing it's a happy occasion in iran many officials were at the international airport to celebrate the arrival of five more new planes but let's look at the real numbers here in the grand scheme of things it's just
5:26 pm
a drop in the bucket these planes five of them each of them can carry between seventy and eighty people and they've got five they wanted to buy from airbus and boeing thirty nine billion dollars worth of planes that was approximately two hundred plus planes they were intending to buy over the next few years of those they've only taken delivery of three so while this is a positive step it's a very small one and they've got a long way to go to modernize what is effectively an aging air fleet traveling by air in iran can be a dangerous prospect hundreds of people have died in air related incidents in accidents over the last few years and really the crux of this is that since one thousand nine hundred eighty nine they've been unable to buy any new aircraft any aircraft with u.s. parts in it or developed or manufactured by the united states has effectively been unsellable to the iranian market one of the benefits that was going to be enjoyed of the twenty fifty nuclear deal directly by the civilians was going to be air
5:27 pm
travel that was ten jubal that was visible it would have been something that would have directly affected people's lives and it was going to be a win win for civilian air travel within the country and outside of iran and it was going to be a win for the government who could say to their people look we made this deal and now we've got better plane safer planes for you to travel around in but that is not happening and that's another frustration that people here are feeling because of those u.s. sanctions a rock music festival in russia has lots of heavy metal on show and it's not just on stage tens of thousands of fans flock to see their favorite bands and some of russia's latest weapons i mean is there. it's a summer staple for many russians just being is the largest rock festival some also call it russia's woodstock a yearly appointment with the finest of the country's music scene. which. has been missed for the past three seasons it's amazing. that you can like hear

5:29 pm
a great sense of national pride and ask anyone here they will credit that feeling to the army. some of the new is equipment and weapons are shown here like this armored personnel vehicles already in use by the infantry division here such piece of modern hardware has a different purpose but the ability of normal we want to show people young men in particular what kind of equipment we have and what our army is capable of when people want to see this up close patriotism increases when you see them you get some kind of pride for your country for your fatherland and you are confident in tomorrow some artists pull out in protest but many big names like the. lead singer of minutes one of the most famous russian bands indorse the festival nothing like that happens at the european festivals but because the because the
5:30 pm
russian society some of the tryst were so fond of victory parades and we can never escape it's so basically i decided for myself just accept it at this festival. it's not clear whether this marriage of music and military is a spontaneous one or it was in pose but it's the detail that many here seem to care about the depth of hamid al jazeera. festival. and has i'm saying let's get a roundup of the headlines on al-jazeera the prime minister of bangladesh has announced a road safety campaign as students demonstrated for the eighth successive day to demand improvements to students were killed by a speeding bus last week at least five tear gas to break up demonstrators earlier on sunday a magnitude seven earthquake has hit off the coast of long island in indonesia
