9:00 pm
al-jazeera. you have for you. this is al-jazeera. hello from doha everyone i'm come out santa maria and this is the news from al-jazeera a program rebel leader has been killed in a blast in ukraine moscow is calling it an act of international terrorism also the final goodbye for the queen of soul thousands attended a funeral celebrating the life of a wreath of franklin. stopped from leaving the country ugandan opposition politician bobby wine is arrested and detained again. in sport knowing touches
9:01 pm
and no shots on target you saying both funny makes his debbie for a pro football same day sprint legend getting a break from now for strenuous central coast mariners in a preseason from. so starting with breaking news from eastern ukraine the pro russian rebel leader alexander has been killed in an explosion according to the region's official media outlet says the blast happened in a cafe in central donetsk and russia is pointing the finger at ukraine saying kiev is responsible for the death calling it an international an act of international terrorism russia denies allegations that it sends money and weapons to the separatists so let's try to get some more clarity with worry chalons in moscow what more you learning. well done yet to the moment
9:02 pm
is the territory in lockdown basically there is no one allowed in and no one allowed out that is because as you say the or thorazine are treating this as an act of terrorism so two is more scope to me putin has offered his deepest condolences after this this this killing now the council of ministers of the dinette people's republic this self declared independent breakaway zone from eastern ukraine have been holding a meeting in which they were looking to appoint a successor and they have said that the first deputy prime minister of the d p r dimitri presence. of is that person now what we know is that there was a blast earlier on at a cafe which i think you can see on your screens you're looking at the aftermath of the moment it's called cafe paris basically the cafe separatists in this cafe
9:03 pm
was the leader of the p.r. alexander shanker and colleagues he was killed in the blast at the moment we don't think there was anybody else killed in the blast but other people were injured so that may change as i could change there was a man who rose to prominence in the early part of the war in ukraine's east he was the head of it one of the militias he was then promoted basically to prime minister of the on the ets at a time when there was an attempt to basically reorganize things there to make it look less like moscow for an operation in moscow run for an operation and more like a kind of home grown independence movement that was born in the us therefore he fitted the bill he went on to be president. both of the minsk summits he was
9:04 pm
even a signature of the second most summits as the head of the d d d p.r. . there are of course going to be questions who did this and the most obvious candidates at the moment are either this was ukraine the s.b.u. . its intelligence outfits or this was infighting in the separatist territories and sells or this is perhaps moscow doing some housecleaning. of course moscow and ukraine are blaming each other at the moment but this does have ramifications which are going to be felt. across ukraine and in moscow as well and throws i think the peace process into some doubt at the moment ok thank you for the update. chalons in moscow there i want to recap on what he told us there about forty two year old alexander like a chang go the leader of the self-proclaimed done yet the people's republic for four years as we heard he joined pro russian separatists in an armed uprising
9:05 pm
internet spec in twenty fourteen even sold his business to help fund the movement he took the reins that year from a series of russians in a bid to show as very said that ukraine separatist movement wasn't a russian led operation. introduced to solve its military parades there were tanks in donetsk and usually war military fatigues despite his political role he proposed the creation of a new country called little or little russia encompassing ukraine with its capital in donetsk in the past he said he'd been the target of several assassination attempts accusing ukraine of trying to kill him in an explosion in twenty sixteen so we've got michael bassekou with us now who is the global affairs analyst former spokesman for the o.e.c.d. the organization of security and cooperation in europe he's on skype from sydney in british columbia thank you for your time as this breaking news develops michael rory explain there a few scenarios of who could possibly be behind this in your mind what's the most
9:06 pm
likely outcome. thanks for having me well you know tim for them to say you know it's the fault of the cranes i think it's not. the standard line if you will of the russian playbook to me it looks like this was an internal operation for the past few weeks and months. has been critical of some of his colleagues other deputies in that so-called d.n.r. parliament i he controlled the t.v. station and we're pretty much humiliated and their colleagues so i think come kind of the writing was on the wall that perhaps his dates were numbered and you know i i was talking to a colleague earlier and we always referred to as a kind of joke as someone who's like a cat with nine lives because in twenty fifteen he narrowly survived. sniper bullet injury to his left leg lower leg and then also a few months ago i know that one about the of cup he was reportedly injured now i've met him as you know when i was part of the o. a c.
9:07 pm
and the one thing about him is you always had a lot of firepower and i'm mistaken blow up firm handshake as well what happens to the movement without him in your opinion is that strong enough as this succession and play. well it's hard to say there are a number of factors there in terms of factors but also external factors that we have to remember that russia is really hurting right now because of sanctions because of the plunge in the ruble other factors costly adventures in syria and elsewhere so i get the feeling that they're not as inclined to send millions of dollars of an issue or an equipment and personnel to it and yet so i think more and more it's been a scenario where they would have to fund themselves you know despite what your colleague said to me another candidate to take over. show low he is one of the most recognizable faces of the so-called d.n.r. speaker of the parliament he's corrupt as they come apparently he ran
9:08 pm
a russian causes and he's also has the distinction of being one of five separatist leaders and when it's grown the e.u. sanctions less than just a quick note on him he's a former security guard and candy sales event so let's see what kind of leader he may have been noting michael thank you for your time today really great to get some explanation and context when you're pleasure moving to other news and family friends fans of the queen of soul aretha franklin are saying their final goodbyes there is a service to celebrate her life underway right now and that man is speaking live as we speak it is the former president bill clinton. she. was.
9:09 pm
recalling her. late. i don't recall. she lived with power not without weakness but overcoming her weaknesses. i just loved her. so i started off as a groupie. and then. oh my god this one and do his song for america. when dr king was killed. you know all these political conventions including my. least president obama. ration thirumal raised and various things that. i. thought are in the
9:10 pm
come in the rose garden a saying for the emperor an emperor is man. thought i'd listen and you know. and. i saw i had figured out i think. the secret of a great as well she took his massive talent. and this perfect culture. and decided to be the composer of her own life so. it turned out to be. i want to. hope god will forgive me. when i was so glad when i got here if you will forgive me . when the casket.
9:11 pm
so question for the president of the united states speaking at the funeral for a wreath of. many speakers one of many performers in a service that was supposed to go for six hours of sleep but i think it'll be going a bit longer than that john hendren is our correspondent has been covering events all week in detroit someone pretty special john where you are but i'm going to read a franklin to the franklin is someone pretty special when you have a former president coming to speak it is. that's right she's got one president speaking there to president barack obama and george w. bush each sent as statement to be read there today and just before you got in bill clinton said before he was a president he was in a wreath of franklin group b. that he and hillary clinton were he went on to say that she was the voice of a generation possibly the voice of
9:12 pm
a century and that is not all of the lot of tory remarks that we heard today earlier on a grand day saying you make me feel like a natural woman and then you had the reverend al sharpton a civil rights activists say that she was the soundtrack to the civil rights movement smokey robinson said my long my longest friend has gone home and he said the world is going to miss you too aretha franklin so it's an extraordinarily high profile event jesse jackson is speaking here stevie wonder is singing is well faith hill sang a little earlier so this is just the culmination of four days of the liberation of the life of a wreath of franklin she was lying in state for three days before this and one reason bill clinton said he wonders what his friend is going to be wearing today is that each day her family has given her a wardrobe change just like when she was doing a show the queen of soul would never wear the same outfit two days in a row in jihad. has not done so posthumously as she continues to stun with her
9:13 pm
fashion sense but yes a huge celebration with probably hours yet to go there are two hours behind right now oh my goodness and what was been happening in detroit today i read something briefly about a pot being renamed. that's right the park where thirty different musical bands played last night it is called chain park and it's going to be renamed aretha franklin park so that is the latest tribute there's also talk of a museum dedicated to her life her music and to her civil rights legacy but perhaps more important if you just look right behind me i don't know if you can see but there's a crowd of people standing here these are the people who are just waiting for everyone to come out that there are people from detroit who remember fondly aretha franklin and she may have all of these laudable people in here but they also allowed about a thousand people just from the street people who had to line up and then get a wristband and be allowed in people here really feel
9:14 pm
a sense of ownership over her because she did come from very little she was a preacher's daughter she had children twice before she was age fifteen and then she rose with that massive challenge of hers to become this international superstar but she never left her hometown for good and people here remember that not just because of what she became and all the things she did for the people around her but because how it reflects on other people here and what might become of them john hendren in detroit thank you so much jones outside of the memorial service for aretha franklin detroit former president bill clinton is speaking right now so many big names to come the service will culminate whenever that time is with performances from stevie wonder and jennifer holiday i'm sure it will be with us waiting to see that. and another american icon is being farewelled with politicians in washington paying their respects to veteran republican senator john mccain a military god of honor carried his casket to lie in state at the u.s. capitol u.s.
9:15 pm
vice president might pence and speak a pole ryan delivered tributes in the building when mccain served for thirty five years mccain was also a prisoner of war in vietnam he supported military interventions in places like afghanistan and iraq and backed israel's twenty fourteen war in gaza. with first prize service ahead of self to summon idealism from a cynical age john mccain was such a maine today. he lives in the place where he served for the last congress of the united states soon he will go to rest on the grounds where he served first the united states naval academy though the highest office eluded him. he attained
9:16 pm
what is far more enduring the biting affection of his fellow citizens and an example for future generations of former presidents barack obama and george w. bush will be among those attending mccain's funeral which happens tomorrow saturday . and now is the american people are going to get a chance to file by his casket to pay their final respects on saturday that is when his funeral will be held and it is really going to be a remarkable scene he has chosen before he died he laid out his final wishes and he wanted former presidents barack obama and george w. bush to give his eulogy these are the two men who kept him from his quest to win the presidency there from different political parties and that's really been the theme of all of the celebrations of john mccain's life is he is sending the message of bipartisanship in his final letter to the american public he said these are trying times we'll get through it but we have to remember first and foremost we're
9:17 pm
all americans one person who will not be at the funeral it is somewhat remarkable the president of the united states donald trump has been told he's not invited. still ahead for you on this news go back home venezuelans here when they cross over the border into peru. from earning money to scoring goals iran tries to step up efforts to stop child labor. and formula one driver. i speak crash in italy and he is along with the new sport at about ten to the. secretary was warning against syrian government offensive in italy province saying it would be an escalation of a dangerous conflict over the past three weeks government forces have been circling the last remaining rebel stronghold and protesters there have been demonstrating as well against any military action the un children agency says it is concerned people
9:18 pm
could be trapped by the financing. you think it's particularly important when we're having all this media that we start hearing that we don't forget that there's more than a million children inside their own children who in some cases have been displaced two three four five six times from different cities in they are children moves coping mechanism has been very much eroded by all these displacement and you are particular risk so that's that's what's happening at the moment mr risk we're facing earlier we heard from with some who was a teacher in the tell us escaping it they could be very difficult. i guess many will now but if we really are we are committed like i give the terrorists now. because in that they. no longer fit in any place in the interior that we might find our way. on the map it looks like a small area but it's
9:19 pm
a huge impact i need or five or six hour from one type to another guy that you or me at least and we have who these people. we are not be using you suffer from you. lot but here i get for can make up for that. as long as we're not willing to eat the area life will a normal. way of showing that we will tag. the usual canard. and again. the law will win even in our n.p.r. they are in the book if they are alive in the fall. of course hundreds of thousands of syrian refugees are sheltering in neighboring lebanon and there are concerns about a russian plan to repair a tree at the un high commissioner for refugees or any such must be internationally
9:20 pm
monitored pressing all these issues and we're making progress on some of them some are more difficult we can talk about that and there is also another point that i would like to add to those that i have mentioned it is important also that u.n. issues are as the united nations refugee agency plays a role and have surprise us. especially in the areas of return now this is sometimes possible sometimes more difficult it is linked often to the security situation but it is clear to everybody in the actor that is playing an increasing role in this situation is the russian federation that they have put forward the ideas thoughts it plan for the return and the same messages that i have described to you i have also fast them. to our russian interlocutors i met them in damascus as well that news conference happened in beirut our correspondents and what i was
9:21 pm
there as well. united nations reiterating its longstanding position that a refugee returns is still premature to organize large scale returns because the situation in syria is still not safe these returns cannot be in the words of the head of the u.n. h.c.r. sustainable he said philip grande a that they have been talking to refugees and we have been talking to refugees and refugees are concerned for a number of reasons even though the fighting has died down what are they going to return to many of the towns and villages have been destroyed their homes have been destroyed there is a lack of services lack of infrastructure no schools and no hospitals in some areas and they're also concerned about the not finding a job or being forced to join the army if the male the men in the family are forced to join the army who is going to work to feed the children but more importantly a lot of them are afraid of retribution they feel that there are no safety
9:22 pm
guarantees in place to make sure that the syrian government does not take any measures against them simply for leaving or accuse them of supporting and supporting the opposition so filippo grand they touring the region talking to officials in damascus both syrian and russian officials about these refugee concerns and telling them that if indeed refugees are to return the united nations needs to have a presence for the program they did not say what response he got he did say that they discussed the russian plan for the refugee returns we asked them to elaborate on that and he and he just didn't give any details so refugees are concerned why because host nations like lebanon like jordan have been stepping up calls for refugees to return home saying that the situation is not safe in syria and that they have been a burden both on the lebanese and jordanian governments and lebanese that the lebanese president told from the program that we don't need to wait for a political solution for it before refugees return so refugees are concerned the
9:23 pm
united nation. making it clear that it is still not safe for these people to return home. to venezuela where some people escaping violence and their collapsing economy service struggling to start a new life in neighboring peril as a racial slurs and hate speech of made it hard for many of them to feel safe marianna sanchez has our report from lima. thirty eight year old the bush man keeps an eye on municipal police will selling a traditional rice string from venice when he still doesn't have a street vendor permit trying to make a living far away from home is hard he says but worse is hearing slurs against been swings a signal or more especially to people like me a street vendor people tell me move get out of here go back to your country. an armed assault mainly perpetrated by even a fearless and con and security cameras sparked

9:35 pm
bangladesh they want to demand of state and those kind of accusation and the gates and the mis information going on many years you know unfortunately the government they did not do anything same same time military and government dryly that propaganda and doing a propaganda i've been moving on so you know recently we have seen the favor when their government. journals and magazines government newspaper and t.v. burmese t.v. and all the other you know media where the missing form all the time is really. is really getting on to the people you know because as a whole country you know government and military is their military is quite a strong institution in burma you know and then the government also participating through the you know what to say through the media department is even

saying that roving gangs are illegal bangali and still with me and rescue workers are struggling to reach thousands of stranded people after a dam burst four people are confirmed dead more than sixty three thousand people in the back of our region have been forced from their homes after this watching them collapse on the reports now from neighboring thailand. repair work is underway at the dam site to try to stem the flow of water the breach happened on the dam spillway a structure that was once one hundred twenty meters high vast areas of big-o. region remain submerged beneath muddy water in some places it's starting to recede but it will be a long time before once fertile farmland can be used again several people are still missing and the military and other rescue personnel and never gauging the murky waters searching for survivors people living in the area had voiced concerns about the water level in the reservoir before the disaster they say they should have been

9:38 pm
trying to tap the phone of qatar is a mere as early as twenty fourteen and among other high profile individuals from the gulf there's a leading saudi prince interesting they've been a dollar. so i think it's been one of those was the worst kept secret in the middle east that there are these underhand dealings with israel particularly last at the emirates i think what is quite profound is that idea that you were you were spying on some of the saudi princes there is often this belief that the saudi and the u.a.e. are partners in crime or partners it was a part of whatever probably not the best expression to use but the idea that they are very much found together as close as possible whereas in reality there is this undercurrent of a power struggle struggle going on the u.e.c. itself is trying to expand itself as a key major force in the region and using these type of underhanded techniques when in life rick i think it's very interesting that the report rings that there was
9:39 pm
spying of the likes of prince mit have been abdullah who is a rival of mohammed bin said a man who is a very good friend of all that we had been they had no idea that they had my eye on . lebanon as well so i think with regard to you eat these kind of tactics not possible why is there an issue that has in order to adopt rather a more sinister style since the version of capital projects in which the spread of influence across the region runs scripts in the can i go to say the government is all of the expulsion of the un human rights team investigating allegations of abuse president daniel ortega dismissed the un report act using him and his government of ignoring human rights violations during anti-government protests a report that will take his administration was responsible for illegal arrests torture and close to trial three hundred people have been killed since that i'm dressed began back in april and argentina's economic crisis is worsening the currency sunk to historic lows despite the central bank raising the key interest
9:40 pm
rate to sixty percent the highest in the world because it's trying to control inflation and rein in a high budget deficit and cutbacks in public spending of already led to strikes polter dodgin report. the downpour from turbulent economic storms over argentina couldn't stop these university students on thursday night. the students along with their professors braved the rain to march through what osiris and expressed their outrage over budget cuts in education but i found that i'm here to defend free and high quality public education assuaged on a fine salaries don't masturbate of inflation at the market that will be going to that level at the top of the lower university budget the country is in a crisis because of the international monetary fund. the international monetary fund has extended a fifty billion dollar bailout loan to argentina when president asked for an early release of the i.m.f. funds the peso tumbled to
9:41 pm
a new low against the dollar ending the day at nearly half the value it had on january the first number is that we did dollar worth over forty pesos we cannot buy teaching materials supplies or to us in support of. inflation is exceeding thirty percent and we are earning less than we need to feed ourselves there are teachers who are living in poverty protesters say basic needs get more expensive every day you took your rates have increased one thousand five hundred percent and businesses are closing leaving more people jobless they blame president for what they call nec anomic disaster. economists say the government needs to stop foreign currency from leaving the country however the government has done the exact opposite they totally deregulated markets. sort of setting the grounds for the run on the dollar president mccree is trying to ease panic among investors he has promised to restore economic growth while cutting argentina's budget deficit reducing inflation and
9:42 pm
making the six hundred forty billion dollars khana me more competitive and i know. that i think you have to give the government times the legacy of the previous government is very pronounced very complicated. but not everyone agrees that more time and patience will save argentina's economy from a total collapse paltrow dirge on al-jazeera. the sun to someone in climate change will alter the earth faster than ever before new research in the journal science changes that once took place over twenty thousand years could happen in just a century once forests deserts ecosystems will look completely different by then and that threatens animal and plant diversity and scientists say we're already seeing these changes in the united states where large wildfires have turned forests into trouble and have suffered as with the university of california and davis he says there's still time though to limit the impact of climate change it's never too
9:43 pm
