the city for any. real wouldn't they be aware that incident home. back at the offices of the concentric patriotism alliance in taipei chief. has decided to offer our undercover such a job. but first he wants to see some id and become too much. like our dog owners are you here in the pub. or they don't know how to when it was on the top. a little later we find out why one probably won't in the world because you're. going to make him proud are you going to die you . can. only get a gun when the only one you're going to go on we're going to see if you know why we didn't budge from your point regarding the young girl you two. years old going up to town and. it's clearly time to end the undercover assignment

the taiwanese public have drawn mixed results an annual poll by the taiwanese public opinion foundation found more respondents viewing china favorably than unfavorably for the first time since the survey started but in a separate survey conducted by the mainland affairs council sixty four point seven percent of respondents agreed that the taiwanese government should take stronger steps to prevent infiltration by the chinese government during cross straits exchanges. for most taiwanese historical ties to china are hard to ignore. culturally the two sides have much in common like this traditional lion dance these teenagers are learning in a village outside the capital taipei. their teacher is a village chief chin jong way he's a supporter of chiding when but has also been criticized for leading other villages
chiefs on exchange visits to china. it was engines are a tire maker and in your genes you are in your city even years that are would be your home for them been there were just too dumb to the email bomb on forgot she. makes it a point to show us this creature a lion unique to taiwan. he says he supports democracy but sidestepped the issue when we asked for his views on unification of the eating so i will go to orders from widgets and control them in the war more than human bargain dollars good than thousands of ns on thoughts of the wiser. i arms and salute he has a little inside her sing one song i'm i'm dying no you don't know your homes are all from a border you go on on which a latika. it's an ambiguous and yet commonly held position in
taiwan recent calls for clarity mean its leaders will have to strike an increasingly delicate balance in a time of heightened tensions. paul trains one of the moons of cities seen through the eyes of those who know it best they see their city of concerted a few. al-jazeera world goes on the road with palestinian taxi drivers living and working at the heart of one of the most hockey contested locations on a. jerusalem's a palestinian cabbies on how jazeera. al-jazeera is a very important force of information for many people around the world when all the

all the rest read she's going nowhere to reason may have to battle on never breaks it off to winning a confidence fires. says an attack on a luxury hotel in kenya is in response to donald trump recognizing jerusalem as israel's capital. american soldiers and civilians are among the dead in an ice on the tag on a popular restaurant to northern syria. they've fled war now they're freezing we talk to syrian refugees facing a new threat to their lives. to reason may is not giving up the bricks that fight within the past hour the prime minister's politicians to put self interest aside she wants them to work together on a consensus deal for britain's exit from the european union she's made the playoff
to head government survived a confidence vote called by the opposition leader three hundred six m.p.'s voted for opposition leader jeremy corbin's motion and three hundred twenty five against that means the government won by nineteen votes paul brennan begins our coverage. she's not just clinging on she's fighting on this evening the government has won the confidence of parliament. this now gives us all the opportunity to focus on finding a way forward on brics it i believe it is my duty to deliver on the british people's instruction to leave the european union and i intend to do so far from quitting of accused in ice historic defeat to resign may return to parliament on wednesday in competent mood for. the prime minister knew that the rebels who voted against her bricks a deal would vote with her this time the eyes of the right three hundred six the no
use of the left three hundred twenty five. it gives her the breathing room to start talking to opposition leaders about her plan b. i would like to invite the leaders of parliamentary parties to meet with me individually and i would like to start these meetings tonight mr speaker. the government approaches these meetings in a constructive spirit and i urge others to do the same in response the opposition labor party urged have to take no deal off the table. the government must remove must remove clearly once and for all the prospect of the catastrophe of a no jail break certainly and all the chaos that would come as a result of that europe has reacted with some alarm to the turmoil at westminster the u. nations have started accelerating their preparations for a no deal breck's it on march twenty ninth the commission regrets the rejection of
the word withdrawal agreement as representative of the council said because we do believe this was the best possible outcome yes we are making preparations for noticing our you know we have to do that now. checks the ports and airports and we're not making preparations for checks on border and but having said that. the only way they can avoid a hard border long term isn't through good will isn't through. the right words it has to be through an agreement but suspicion is growing that the prime minister's plan b. will look remarkably similar to the deal so emphatically rejected already the u.k. is really now in the realms of the unprecedented many m.p.'s are so skeptical of teresa mayes chances of finding a workable plan before bricks it's that one group is actively seeking to strip her of power and handed instead to the powerful palm tree liaison committee for across policy solution on the government would be legally obliged to follow its recommendations it could advocate
a new general election another referendum perhaps on the m.p.'s would effectively be in charge of the executive these are indeed extraordinary times paul brennan al jazeera westminster well theresa may has begun missing opposition leaders to try to secure a bricks that deal she will need to present have plan b s a parliament by monday after politicians voted overwhelmingly against her original proposal if she fails to get it approved then britain faces the real prospect of breaking away from the e.u. on march the twenty ninth without a deal to avoid this the british government could propose to negotiate a new deal this would mean the e.u. to delay the departure deadline other options include calling another referendum snap elections or cancelling bex it altogether well the european union has warned the brics a deal agreed with may is the best it can offer but the e.u. may be more flexible on when the u.k. leaves the bloc david chase a has more from brussels. it's
a relief for the leaders of the european union that they will be talking to to reason maybe there was always the remote possibility that she could fall in this vote of no confidence but that least they do know who they'd be talking to the same and they've been talking to them more than two years now over this deal and e.u. say that they will not change the details the important details of the withdrawal agreement but what is being increasingly talked about now in brussels is the fact that the march the twenty ninth deadline the the cliff edge that everybody is talking about the withdrawal agreement might be suspended they have made to look on that very favorably it's all a case of how long will it be extended so this is a pressure coming from the president of france and the chancellor angela merkel of germany to come to some sort of flexibility on that not on the deal but on the time
being allowed to allow the term or that we've seen in the house of commons to die down and for these cross party talks to come up with a new strategy an evolution of the politics in the united kingdom this is what they want to see and the only way to get that is to allow time for it to evolve so we might see a quite a long extension of the withdrawal agreement and so march the twenty ninth will not be the cliff edge that everybody is facing because nobody here in the new wants to see and no deal breaks it so that's the feeling from brussels and from the european union. the armed great behind tuesday's attack in kenya says it was in retaliation for the u.s. president's decision to recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel at least twenty one people died in the assault by al-shabaab fighters on a nairobi hotel complex the red cross says fifty people are still unaccounted for
catherine so it has more from nairobi. outside this morgue in nairobi and she's family members and colleagues wait for news some more than that. now this over details of what happened inside the dusit hotel complex are beginning to march surveillance cameras capture the beginnings of the attack when heavily armed men walked into the upmarket complex from all over the place employees are running all over the place he was screaming for point to realize that the best thing to do is to find a service a place to hide. for hours afterwards terrified workers and clients barricaded themselves in as gunfire and explosions rang out. some people are still missing hundreds of others were taken to safety you know peroration that lasted through tuesday night we go out to say for the evacuation
but they make a big mistake because it was not secure we go and move the ship to us kenya's president has vowed to bring those responsible to justice we are a country governed by laws rules and regulations a country that embraces peaceful coexistence we believe in these principles and values. even in the face of adversity and i must also state that we are also a nation that never forgets. those who hurt children the police have started investigating they want to find out how the attack was planned how the gunman got hero who was a canyons of a foreign is who are their friends who helped them where was their attack plan and
all this are questions that many kenyans want to quit consistent. al-shabaab has in the past said their tox i read response to kenya sending troops to somalia as part of a un backed international force this is the third and a vast area of the killing. of more than one hundred kenyan soldiers on a military base in south and somalia. this must have been. pock. sleep in. in the country and was just activated for two reasons one of course our shabaab was commemorating the idea need vasari and secondly it was announcing that it is still there it is still irreverent and it's too. lethal the hotel is now a crime scene and the city is mourning one small. catherine soil to zero nairobi. well i still has claimed responsibility for a suicide bomb attack that killed nineteen people in northern syria among the dead
are four americans two soldiers and two civilians it's happened just weeks after president donald trump announced he was pulling troops out of syria because i still had been defeated in reports from washington d.c. . love in the streets a popular restaurant blown apart american helicopters rushed in to help the wounded and remove the dead in the city of men bitch the u.s. military confirming on twitter that u.s. service members were killed this logic state of iraq in the levant says they are responsible and that they were targeting the coalition of u.s. senator lindsey graham directly blamed the attack on president donald trump promised to pull u.s. troops out quickly mark uncertain statements made the president trying. is it you're set in motion enthusiasm by the enemy we're fighting you make people who are trying to kill wonder about us and as they get older the people
we're trying to help are going to going to get more uncertain saw this in iraq and now seeing it in syria he urged the president to reconsider but that seems unlikely because just after the attack the vice president made this claim we're bringing our troops all the caliphate has crumbled and isis has been defeated. one of the leaders who most clearly does not want to see the u.s. president change course the president of turkey who weighed in the me. i asked his claim their responsibility for the attack and this may mean to affect the decision that mr trump has taken but as i know mr trump's determination about this issue i do not think he will step back against this kind of a terrorist attack. donald trump has been criticized by both parties for his decision to withdraw u.s. troops his secretary of defense quit in protest now his claim that i still has been defeated will be openly question.
