a decade his one shot victory at the masters is his fifth green jacket but to get there the forty three year old has had to overcome back surgery and doubts that he could ever compete again let alone when paul vander worth reports. the emotion was clear for you to see. the final part was the culmination of the mill even you come back from multiple back surgeries as well as a number of scandals that lead to the breakup of this marriage and as a race. it's overwhelming and i think it's because of what has transpired and. last year i was very lucky to be playing in the plane again. woods went on to the final round as well gus the two shots behind francesco molinari and a fifth green jacket was looking unlikely until the italian double bogey the twelfth and fifteen dollars each and finishing time. will be up there against one of the hardest i think i've ever had than when just because of what has transpired

11:47 am
we live in a digital world where even the remotest communities have access to mobile phones. but look in this technology bring to a nomadic existence life apps travels to the media and gives the software designer the ultimate challenge design an app to help the him be tried in their daily lives can you really be done. fly facts one for nomad amount to see that. al-jazeera is swear every. this was wrong to take children away from their parents and herd them into
11:48 am
a school against their will there was no mother no father figures they put us in the big player and we sort of looked after so i don't remember the children's names but i'll never forget that kind of a. dark secret on al-jazeera. they will not be moved protesters in sudan stand their ground despite concessions from the country's interim leader. hello i'm just on the attain this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up here and back to forces in libya say they have shot down
11:49 am
a jet belonging to warlord khalifa haftar. the digital should know we are watching and our support will not waver the u.s. secretary of state warns of venezuela's president as he visits the colombian border city at the center of the a dispute plus. when hate cards are where indonesians are preparing to vote in an election that for many will be about the economy and trying to decide whether the current president has done enough to improve their lot. we begin in sudan where it's been another day of fast moving developments out even off the defense minister who led to this week's toppling of president time al bashir was forced to retire a new intelligence chief has also been appointed the military council running the country now says it will allow political parties to pick a new civilian prime minister ousted president i'm alba she has pause he will not
11:50 am
be allowed to join that transitional government. we do not calling for the removal of demonstrators by force in fact the reason we intervened in the first place was because force was used by the ousted regime but our call to. the one who is organizing the protests to bring life back to normalcy still stands having said that if we find people with weapons of course we have to bear the responsibility as guarantors of the state we can't allow that to take place in order to protect the protesters outside the army headquarters or anywhere in the land of sudan as long as the protesters are allowed to demonstrate we bear the responsibility of protecting them and won't allow any third party to do so al-jazeera to the morgan has more from cutting. after the meeting between the political parties and the military council the military council said that it was optimistic but some political parties are saying that their list of demands have not been met now one
11:51 am
point of course the contention between the two sides is how the transitional government would look like for the next two years the council wants a government that is made of civilians but where it has a certain degree of influence while the political parties want an independent government to wrote to rule the country during its transitional period a year to decide the way or the mandate or the method of to of picking up a prime minister something that the council says is up to the political parties but the parties have to agree on how they will decide on a prime minister and how they will decide on the makeup of the cabinet meanwhile the sudanese professional association the body that is spearheading the calls for protests are telling people to continue with this attempt for the ninth day in a row people are saying that their minute their list of demands is not met they don't want there is a nation they are not ok with the resignation of the former chief of intelligence. they want the complete abolishing of the national intelligence and security services they also want to see the former regime members being tried in the open
11:52 am
they want to know who is being arrested what crimes they committed and if they will have a fair trial and be held accountable to all crimes that they've committed during their fifty years in power so at the moment it's not just the political parties in difference with the military council but there seems to be some kind of differences between the parties themselves and until they get together and find a way to form a transitional government many on the street say they will continue to protest corresponding mama deval is close to the army headquarters where demonstrators are still protesting. but this is the fourth. amount of pressure you understood what is happening once again in their cars and on the headquarters of the army they say they are here to show their own copy structure volatile. they have achieved what they call a complete revolution against one of the most despotic regimes in the middle east and off that there's a suffering and oppression and they are not going to go home until the complete
11:53 am
list of the module to have committed to be rolling across are met and nothing good the dismantling of all the difficulties safe and. remove all of the elements of the film regime discussions have been going on between the neither side of the soft i.c. and the minutes at a cost of the last couple of days and the list of the months is being discussed they say every day that goes by and with the continuation of this momentum they get more concessions and they get closer and closer to the from achievement of the goals well actually we spoke to linda bashar i who is an international law and politics analyst she says the situation remains charged on the political level. i think that every day and every announcement give us a little bit more clarity but the situation remains very volatile and there are still many different ways it could resolve itself so i don't think we're really on
11:54 am
the clear path just yet i believe that the latest announcements are generally positive but it is still i would say concerning that. that there is a general ham out to who is known to have been very violent and brutal in daraa for and is in charge of the rapid support forces still considered part of the military council and some of the insistence by the military council that they will retain control of the military and the ministry of interior so i think it remains to be seen just just how many concessions they're willing to make there are many different disaggregated militias and security forces in sudan and it's not entirely always clear what their orders are and where they're coming from we still don't really know where omar al bashir is and under what conditions he has resigned and the same is true for the former head of the national intelligence service and. we
11:55 am
are not sure how much freedom and influence these men still have as well as many others who would be unacceptable as as having any kind of power to those who have been organizing the protests and to the opposition parties. thousands of civilians have been forced out of their homes on the southern al set out scouts and the libyan capital tripoli and as the fighting continues between forces loyal to libyan war cliff the hafter and others allied with the internationally recognized government the humanitarian situation is worsening like what otherwise he had reports from tripoli. displaced in their own country this is one of the many offices in the libyan capital where people affected by the latest fighting have come to register their names they were promised food and shelter for hamad left his home in where the ruby area south of tripoli after random gunfire hit their house
11:56 am
he says he and his family narrowly escaped death. our house was in the crossfire from three directions so i gathered my family and took shelter in one room five minutes later a rocket landed and exploded in the house it destroyed three rooms. fighting has intensified near civilians areas since the forces loyal to. their have to launch an offensive to take control of the capital tripoli on the fourth of april. and back to police the government has launched a counter or fence of to defend the capital the fighting soon currently extends to around one hundred sixty kilometers south of tripoli it includes the areas of gaza have been a cheer the disused international airport. so. where they will be here and ends are civil litigations in and around tripoli have been also hit by
11:57 am
a restrikes the united nations says more than one thousand people have left their homes to escape the fighting on the southern outskirts of tripoli government officials here say that number continues to rise and there and back the government is accusing the health of the forces of targeting civilian areas. with heavy weapons mohammed says he saw dead bodies near his house and one of his neighbors was killed by a random bullet he and his family hardly had any chance to collect their blooming says one woman who would have we don't know where we should go has been destroyed in our area it's caves there and we left everything behind including our life stuck . they're being provided with food and blankets by aid organizations but municipal council members say they don't have enough shelters to accommodate the groomed number of displaced people. that five hundred families have registered
11:58 am
only in the center we are getting more people but the problem we face is that we don't have enough shelters we have even used state hotels and hospitals to lodge them some of these people have been provided to the houses by due notice others hosted by their relatives but has it own neighborhoods have turned it into a better resume their water at the houses they've lived to be behind could be destroyed in the fighting. tripoli now libya's un backed government is warning egypt against meddling in its affairs. we hope that all countries including the republic of egypt are aligned with the will of the libyan people the stability of libya will be beneficial to egypt as for terrorism and those who play to the tune of terrorism and say if you don't agree with me you are a terrorist or a member of the muslim brotherhood this kind of talk is feeble and baseless egypt
11:59 am
is totally free to conduct its own policy but the libyan people are absolutely free to choose what they want and what is in their best interest no country or group can impose their opinion on the choice of the libyan people the libyan people's voice will be strong in choosing what they see as in their interest well as the fighting goes on refugees and migrants in libya say they're terrified of what might happen to them most people trying to reach europe from other parts of africa duress or through libya and now many are going back to some of the countries along the transit routes. in neighboring. officials and locals are telling us dozens of people are crossing the border from the deck in to agonise every week that is the question right now in a not just in addition to the thousands of migrants who are still trapped here people who fled recently from libya into i get it trying to find refuge from the
12:00 pm
ongoing crisis in the country and there are more people by the way who are coming into i get is try to wait out the situation in libya waiting for the right moment to cross the border into libya as a transit point and then into europe now the whole to the end i get it including humanitarian workers like the united nations high commission for refugees and other non-governmental organizations are reaching out for a must in flow of refugees from the traffic of human humanity or people by crimes is now under the bus five people instead of going to media and are coming back to share hearing i get is why facilities i don't overstretch or for just yet are really concerned about health impact infrastructure a snort i think pretty enough to cope with a large influx as well as security so the united nations is telling al-jazeera that they are also making the necessary preparations they don't see it right now but they're making preparations in case there is a massive flow of refugees from across the border in tunisia here.
