protesters of kept up their demands for change they say they will not leave the streets until the military has handed over power to a civilian government or the army wants that to be a two year transition period of doctors took part in wednesday's protest demanding a better health care system. i'm about has more from khartoum. sider sources told our dizzy other former president tomorrow house and bashir has been moved to the jail of cold in the north of khartoum that's the district of battery former president omar bashir has been held in house arrest since the coup that took place last week and there have been demands by protesters and the by the various components of the sudanese opposition for and bashir to be tried as soon as possible there is a lot of criticism among the opposition and the protesters with regards to the way
3:51 am
in which the military council is handling the situation of amal bashir and the top leaders of the former regime particularly the fact that they're being very secure about what's going on and what is happening to them until now there is no official statement from the military council confirming or denying that bashir has been moved to this jail and we know that over the last several days the i.c.c. has asked for him to be handed for trial for crimes against humanity in darfur the military council has said that that's not an option sudan will not hand on bashir but if he's going to be tried he will be tried inside sudan itself meanwhile the protesters are continuing their sit ins in front of the military headquarters and they are insisting that they will not move from that place until the complete list of the months which they have submitted to the military council is fulfilled or so we have seen huge rallies taking place today by various professional organizations

3:53 am
the rulers former president alan garcia has died hours after shooting himself in the head to avoid arrest garcia was being investigated for bribery in what's become latin america's largest corruption scandal he turned the gun on himself as police arrived at his home in lima to arrest him because he was rushed to hospital and had emergency surgery died from his wounds to our left america editor you see in human so you see a very dramatic events that are. absolutely going this is it is a really shocking end to kill one of our rules the most important politicians of anger of the first took office when he was very very young back in one thousand eighty five he was an incredibly small and amazing all rater very very charismatic people were absolutely thrilled with him and he was he was really a member of the center left wing a pretty party back then he ended of course leaving parole in wrappers with the
3:54 am
worst hyperinflation in the region and also with the violence from the left wing. that only not all shining path group. clearly destroying confidence in the country but then he was able to come back again in two thousand and six this time as a free market conservative lauren and then he actually became very popular he was praised for having an increased. investment in peru but he also according to prosecutors managed to improve his own personal standing by taking millions of dollars in bribes and that brings us to the present he has consistently denied that he had taken any money from all of the british the brazilian company the engineering company that has been a children actually has confessed to bribing nearly all most every country in latin america hundreds of millions of dollars in order to obtain contracts i don't see us always denied this but finally prosecutors did not believe him and the government
3:55 am
will do why refuse to give him a refuge at the embassy when he requested it just a few months ago so clearly he decided that he was not going to face the courts and his life dramatically as you've just described and how close it is to read to kind of closing the case on this big case on corruption that this made much progress and . no country in the world has made as much progress as peru you know this is incredible five presidents all of the presidents and fact since i'm going to be entered into the ministration back in ninety ninety are in prison or in the case of one of them a hundred tornadoes he's escaping justice somewhere in the world there's an arrest warrant out for him and all of the finitude. corruption and or abuse of power as in the case of i was with the full team already so they have been in prison in fact a pic of the two ski he was in prison just a couple of weeks ago also accused of lidge to the all the british case so they've made a lot of advances and i think that's why a long time to see i felt that there was no way that he was going to get away with
3:56 am
this even despite his denials and despite the fact that many people thought that he had become untouchable large in human thank you very much indeed. the troika's tyranny that's what the u.s. national security adviser has called cuba nicaragua and venezuela announcing new sanctions on all three countries john bolton made the announcement as president donald trump seeks to boost pressure. on venezuela leader nicholas my dura and the countries that support him bolton says five names linked to cuba's military and intelligence services will be blacklisted is also announced new sections on venezuela's central bank. in washington so what's the owner of this move well the key sanctions that he's going to put in place is that he's going to put more restrictions on non family travel for u.s. citizens to cuba and also he's going to limit the amount of remittances the amount
3:57 am
of money that people can send from the u.s. into cuba that will severely restrict first of all the cuban economy because it restricts the money going in there he also believes that that will put pressure on the government and he said that the fed up making friends with america's enemies and they will not continue to do this it was a fairly fiery speech by john bolton he was addressing the veterans of the bay of pigs invasion fifty years ago a group of cuban americans launched an attack on cuba to try and overthrow castro every year they mark that anniversary john bolton has spoken to this group on numerous occasions in the past and this time he brought them to his feet brought them to their feet when he knows these new u.s. restrictions. the department of the treasury will implement further regulatory changes to restrict nonfamily travel to cuba or in other words.
3:58 am
these new measures will help steer american dollars away from the cuban regime or its military and security services who control the tourism industry in cuba. and i were going to reaction as they've been to the measures. well it's still pretty early. to get some sort of reaction from itself certainly we know that there are democrats are saying that the whole measures that the u.s. are putting in place today including opening up the way to loan companies who based their business is a property that was seized by fidel castro that was formerly owned by americans to be sued in the u.s. courts well that's drawn a lot of criticism from the e.u. from spain who've invested billions of dollars companies of it from their vested billions of dollars into cuba over the last few years say that this is
3:59 am
a bad idea and a number of democrats in washington as well and the chamber of commerce which would normally be an ally of a republican president saying this is bad for trade this is a bad idea that we've tried for sixty years to change cuba and going back to the old methods aren't going to help this of course is a throwback to barack obama donald trump a son picking a lot of his foreign policy legacies you remember that back in july twenty fifteen the u.s. reopened its embassy in havana that was because barack obama wanted to change the dynamic between cuba and the u.s. and said that it was going to open up trade going to travel going to open up investment additionally john bolton also announced that there were a number of entities that are linked to the nicaraguan regime and also the venezuelan government that those two would face economic sanctions including the bank of venezuela and by doing that during this fiery speech he said he hoped that that was going to be
4:00 am
a message to russia to not get involved in what's going on in the western hemisphere. thank you very much. you're watching i'm just here live from london still ahead egypt showed you was a referendum on sweeping course additional changes that could keep president c.c. it until twenty thirty. days surges ahead in early results for a. it is year's presidential election possibly winning a second term beating up one of the world's largest democracy. and i bet so looking rather wait for some of us in spain and portugal over the next few days for the satellite picture we can see the clouds it streaming its way across us and then it'll stay very gray there as we head through the next few days at least so lots of clouds loss of wet weather around it really doesn't.
