a lot of ground to the syrian government but they still have their voices and their refusing to remain silent every friday afternoon prayers they take to the streets and in towns and villages across the province of idlib the province of course under the control of the rebels in the northwest of the country every friday they have a different message and this time around their message is not directed to the syrian government it's not directed to the international community but to their own leadership the higher negotiations committee which has been the go shaving on behalf of the opposition in peace talks in geneva in recent years the people of it live are afraid the h.m.c. is not. standing up for their rights because there they are singling out what happened in the southern province of that era where the rebels and the people at the end were forced to accept so-called reconciliation the us to lay down their arms and to accept the return of state rule to that area and this is what people
are afraid of yes there is now a turkey russian deal to create the demilitarized zone which really averted the possibility of a military offensive in that area but this is a temporary solution syrian government officials are talking about regaining state control regaining control over at least so people are afraid if the state comes back what guarantees do they have that they won't be arrested or detained because these people engaged in opposition activities and for the government they are they are terrorists so people taking to the streets their anger directed towards their own leadership last week happening inside syrian government they called on the international community not to engage with the damascus government but now directing their anger towards the h.m.c. . u.s. president donald trump and what he calls rich countries around the world to cough up finances for american military support it's a republican rally in minnesota trump pointed his finger at saudi arabia for the third time in a week saying the kingdom security is indebted to washington. we defend countries
that are very rich they don't pay us or they a small percentage take saudi arabia would you say they have somali so we defend and they pay a small percentage i said excuse me king solomon is my friend. do you mind paying for the military. their parents or thirty percent as i said you my bank. or the washington post has printed a blank column in its latest issue in solidarity with a saudi contributor who went missing in turkey jamal khashoggi a critic of saudi crown prince mohammed bin sound man has not been seen since he went into the saudi consulate in istanbul on tuesday saudi officials insist he went missing after he left the building but the turkish government believes he is still inside. the president of interpol has been reported missing after traveling to
china making our way has not been heard from since he left the french city of galle where interpol has its headquarters at the end of last month a french dish judicial official says he arrived in china but disappeared soon after the man was formally a senior chinese security official a correspondent adrian brown has more now from beijing. well so far this mysterious story is not being reported by state controlled media the reports we're getting about monk homei are coming from france that's where the international police organization has its headquarters in leone and that's where he lived with his wife now she apparently contacted police because she says she hasn't heard from her husband since he returned to china last week we don't know if he was summoned back to china because he's still a vice minister of public security and that was the position he held here in china
before he was appointed president of interpol in two thousand and sixteen the first chinese person to hold that post he's also been a director of the counter-terrorism office here in china a very senior law enforcement officer now interpol has issued a statement saying that this is a matter for the authorities in china and france and they will be commenting any further some important context a man who was ultimately monks' boss was jailed for corruption in two thousand and fifteen and then a nother man who was a vice minister of public security was also jailed for corruption in two thousand and sixteen and al-jazeera has a stablished that his name was removed from a tea party committee in april two thousand and eighteen just a few months ago now it's not unusual for prominent figures to disappear here in china a tycoon from china do. sapir from
a hotel in hong kong twenty months ago he'd been wanted for questioning here in the mainland and hasn't been seen since and then in june a well known actress vanished she suddenly popped up just this week following an investigation into her tax affairs and then of course we had the cases of the hong kong booksellers who also vanished only to reappear again of the several months of being held on the mainland now there could be an innocent explanation for mom's disappearance but if he hasn't appeared by monday then i think the chinese authorities will be facing demands for some sort of explanation. a leading critic of rwanda's president paul kagame has been released from prison than spend more than a year behind bars after she was arrested along with her mother in september two thousand and seventeen she was barred from running against gunmen last year's election and face charges of incitement to fraud
a high court judge met with our and her mother out on bail on friday said they won't be allowed to leave the capital kigali. on our course in south korea has jailed former president lee myung bak for corruption making him the country's fourth former leader to be sent to prison he was found guilty of embezzling around twenty one million dollars and accepting bribes from samsung as well as south korea's intelligence services bribe reports from seoul. the charges date back to lean young backs time in office ten years ago and highlight once again the graft prone links between big business and south korean politics it was alleged in court he accepted millions of dollars in illegal payments from institutions including samsung and embezzled millions more from a private company that he had control over actions the court condemned as a betrayal of public trust this. mistrust and disappointment in our society as well
as in the people who have supported him believed in him leave boycotted the proceedings apparently in protest of them being broadcast live to south korea the conservative claims the case is politically motivated by the current liberal administration. the prosecutors investigation against the administration is clearly a personal attack targeting me. the fourth former president to be imprisoned since leaving office the most recent before him parking on hay is serving a more than thirty year sentence for a crime she committed before being impeached and removed from office last year since moving towards democracy in the one nine hundred eighty s. all south korean leaders have been tarnished to some degree by alleged wrongdoing either by themselves or their immediate families while in office for many political commentators cases like police have become familiar and many koreans are frustrated
on the other hand they want to move forward and dream for better more democratic society part of the problem say critics is the power enjoyed by south korean presidents it's led to a debate about whether presidential powers should be curbed but for now jailing former leaders who abuse that all politics seems to be accepted as a fact of political life from the bride al jazeera so. a campaigning is now over in brazil's presidential election with two days of rest before sunday's vote hairball scenario is still the front runner despite not campaigning since his near fatal stabbing four weeks ago far right candidate needs the latest polling on thirty five percent that's three points up from the previous poll on tuesday its closest rival from london had died from the left wing workers'
party is on twenty two percent after a place in jail for president lula da silva the other candidates are way behind including a recap marilyn's from the willing resilient democratic movement whose own just two percent with no one likely to get fifty percent of the vote it's almost certain to go to a runoff between both sonera and her dad in three weeks the latest poll says that would be almost neck and neck with both sonar on forty four percent and her dad on forty three all those presidential candidates have taken part in their final debate before the election with just paulson or a missing brazilians are frustrated as an increase in violent crime several high profile corruption scandals and a stuttering economy reports from south park. the last debate before the elections on sunday something a little bit of the lisi did not want to miss. i am worried about what is already happening in brazil we need to tackle fascist ideas there is
a complex polarization of our society but we can't forget what's been happening in brazil over the last few years it's important we vote on sunday so we can keep its democracy. seven of the presidential candidates attended the debate and religion nailed the frontrunner former army captain john edwards on nat'l the t.v. global citing doctor's orders after being stabbed during a campaign event one month ago instead he gave a recorded interview to t.v. record own by anyone jellicoe church at the same time that the debate was happening . boy did. you not call me corrupt i have always fought for the union of all brazilians however the leftists divided us the workers' party did not work and they betrayed workers in the country. second place candidate for the man who had that who was handpicked by jailed former president. has been trying to prove
that his party is the solution for brazil. the workers party has been trying to turn things around by posting a video comparing bolton nat'l with adolf hitler but the strategy so far has failed to turn polls around even though there are thirteen candidates this election has become a command race between j.d. was so not unfair among the i that support for most and i've increased in recent days but some analysts say that he could win in the first round ballots and the reasons why are many analysts say brazilians are voting against corruption and against the workers' party whose image has been tarnished by the largest corruption scandal in brazil's history. stuff it can only be explained by the abandonment of the state these are the people who suffered most in brazil's crisis in the last three years with violence unemployment and corruption so maybe they prefer to have
a little bit of hope of getting jobs even if that means reducing democracy. so the america's largest democracy is heading to the polls on sunday the results will indicate which path brazil chooses to take it is how will. this quick look at the top stories for you now the u.s. senate has cleared the way for a final vote on saturday confirming the controversial nomination of brett kavanaugh to a lifetime seat on the supreme court republican controlled senate voted fifty one to forty nine to set up a likely final vote on brett kavanaugh his confirmation on saturday but the senate remains basically divided and all eyes will be on key republican senators who remain undecided over cavanagh's nomination roselyn jordan has more. the u.s. president all probably quickly tweeted out congratulations to the senate for
