5:06 pm
a protest in a feast which they are calling the acts of civil disobedience have been a question for the closure of roads in some towns in other parts of the country and that is what the protesters are saying is what they intend to continue doing of course this is a setback for the talks between the opposition and the military council they have had some progress on monday which was the past this is the focus of the zoom but it would be unlikely that any talks from here on in would be happening under the same atmosphere and the would be forced to also all talk about timetable they have set for the quick achieving over evolves. saudi arabia state owned energy company aramco has stopped pumping oil through a major pipeline after a drone attack the government says 2 stations were targeted on the east west pipeline if you rebels in yemen say they launched strikes toward the kingdom to
5:07 pm
stop its aggression a rebel spokesman is threatening further attacks saying that he is a pro who the journalist he says the who 3 rebels are within their right to attack saudi civilian infrastructure. sometimes. forces inside i don't follow the road has conducted many at arkansas the idea without declaring attacks they waited till the saudi deny all the saudi did not release any information about it then they use this kind of statement there and i think this is a kind of a war that we are in you have to wait to see what damage you have done inside saudi arabia and i believe in the coming hour we will know all the information about the attack we've seen that they knighted nation itself has taken saudi arabia full my list for killing children twice because saudi has threatened that they will cut the money they give into the united nation so this international law i think we and yemen we are both in it now on the shelf because. we have now yemeni forces.
5:08 pm
in yemeni we have now the right to thought to get any installation in saudi arabia to damage their economy that oil field or that infrastructure support because if we don't know if we are not doing so it means that we are allowing the saudi to continue killing yemenis of course some people might see this is wrong but i think what you have done in the last more than 40 years bieber should have said should have stopped that not wait for 5 years till we respond and then they will say why you thought it in a civilian infrastructure andras krieg is an assistant professor of defense studies king's college london he says an attack like this shows the strong targets thief in society territories. the east west pipeline is very significant it's very significant for saudi arabia was also very significant for a global oil supply so a demagogue of that has already actually it's not working actually has an impact on
5:09 pm
the oil price and so that is very significant and it's quite questionable how they will he's able to fly 1000 kilometers into salutary jory without being detected and without being shot down and and that is actually that clearly shows that the who the capability has increased massively in recent years some of it home grown but in there is definitely something that we suggest that the iranians have helped out for or for quite a bit we know they have their drone strike capability we know that they've been using drones for in for reconnaissance and information they've used drones to also target u.s. and am sorry coalition forces on the ground but all within the parameters of yemen they've never been able to actually deeply penetrate saudi arabia there's been reports recently by the u.n. as well that suggest that this particular u.a.b. and has been developed in yemen with the help of the iranians is able to deliver.
5:10 pm
you know ordinance quite deeply up 215-5200 kilometers from the desk from the origin to a particular target so it is definitely possible that there were these are behind it and all kinds of kind of looks like they are targeting the oil infrastructure the united nations says the withdrawal of yemen's houthi rebels from 3 major ports is going according to plan 3 deployment of fighters as part of a u.n. brokered peace deal but the yemeni government is accused of handing over control to allied fighters move on both sides are meeting the u.n. in jordan to verify the deal. iran is accusing the u.s. of escalating the crisis in the gulf region its foreign minister zarif is in new delhi on an official visit he says to her and predicted what he called sabotage operation to escalate the situation on monday for cargo ships south of the strait of hormuz were damaged by explosions and the american military team is helping the

5:12 pm
actors might be trying to goad the united states into a conflict in the region earlier on tuesday a senior member of parliament seemed to suggest that israel might have been behind the incident and during a diplomatic visit to india foreign minister jihad zarif himself seemed to point a finger at the united states saying that the u.s. may be trying to destabilize the region and that iran had warned about possible sabotage attacks like this being carried out by the united states iran's leaders continue to press their neighbors to try to create an atmosphere of cooperation in the region saying that the united states remains an outsider in this part of the middle east and that it is up to countries leaders in the middle east itself to focus on their own security their own stability and manage the region's security by themselves and for themselves of course the latest overtures by iran come at a time of heightened tensions with the united states iran and its neighbors have
5:13 pm

a sabotage operation on monday 4 cargo ships off the u.s. east coast with damage by explosions. sri lanka's government has ordered a nationwide curfew for a 2nd night security forces say they want to prevent attacks against muslims so far one person has died in the rising the u.n. is worried the unrest could spiral andrew symonds reports. security forces say the violence is a direct result of the easter sunday bombings muslim businesses have been either set on fire or vandalized here a factory attacked by what police describe as mobs. police say they've used tough counter measures and the violence is now under control sri lanka's prime minister gave this warning in his speech to the nation happy i am to have the anetta i have given all necessary powers to the security forces to take stern action against
5:18 pm
those breaching a peace by violating the curfew and emergency law security forces will take all steps to take action against those breaching the law therefore i request the fullest cooperation to the military and police to safeguard peace i police say in the 3 worst affected districts north of the capital colombo young people grouped together in what appeared to be planned actions. among the targets were muslim own shops mosques were also attacked. this small group must stop the dangerous game they play against the lives and property of innocent people i must state that we want to allow the country to be led to anarchy by those who show their strength on unarmed innocent civilians sri lanka's muslims make up less than 10 percent of the country's $22000000.00 population political leaders here are warning that violence will not only increased tension but also hinder the investigation into these 2 bombings in which more than 250 people died andrew
5:19 pm
symonds. has got the latest from the now found this is in colombo it's nightfall there has the situation calmed down. with the curfew there's been little choice in the sense that the island wide curfew was lifted in the early hours of this morning for the rest of the country but in that northwestern province where most of those violent plant flashpoints was seen the curfew remained right through to a few hours ago when there was just a 2 hour window where the curfew was lifted and it was reimposed once again the police the armed forces and the authorities not taking any chances they do realize that tensions are quite high so not leaving anything to chance bringing in that curfew now we're also having the curfew extended island wide in all parts of the country obviously trying to use
5:20 pm
a heavy hand basically to ensure that any violence targeted against the muslim community and any other potential flashpoint are avoided so i mean. the number of arrests were very revealing about suggestions that this may have been orchestrated 1st here. that's right we're hearing of a number of arrests in minong go to one of the worst worst affected areas we did hear that 9 people had been arrested earlier in the deed they had been produced before a magistrate and reminded also several other address being carried out throughout that region where the violence sort of occurred over the last 48 hours there are a number of people eyewitness accounts as well as community leaders who have suggested that this was not just an outpouring of anger and frustration it wasn't
5:21 pm
a spontaneous sort of a leader option of violence of christians against muslims or muslim retaliations against such attacks against christians but that there was an orchestrated organized campaign to create this violence. that is backed up by the fact that if you look at even the curfew that was in place in the northwestern province to did their eye witness reports that there were groups who were traveling around the region you know hitting places which were left unguarded obviously the police and the armed forces it's literally a logistical issue decline on the street at every junction but as as much as there was a little bit of a love law or no presence there was cases not widespread but their work here says that despite the police view that there was 5 incidents of violence so very targeted very organized as well as people from those local villages also telling
5:22 pm
our jazeera that a number of cases all this violence that it wasn't people in the particular villages this is there were outsiders who came and did it we were not responsible there were groups that seemed to have come into our village so these are some of the sort of lines going around but also hearing of arrests of 2 particular individuals in the past associated with anti muslim violence one particularly during the anti muslim riots in kandy last year he has been taken into custody so all of these giving us an indication that there might have been sort of another hand at play here now obviously this has to be investigated this has not been confirmed but certainly many people tending to subscribe to that school of thought so i mean. the numbers there from colombo. an israeli cyber firm is accused of developing software used to hack mobile phones through whatsapp the financial times
5:23 pm
newspaper says the group's pegasus program targeted an unknown number of people using the app or sap says the spyware was used to penetrate phones through mr voice calls the firm has urged its 1500000000 users to update their applications now israel classifies n.s.a. technology as a weapon the company must obtain approval from the ministry of defense to sell it to foreign governments ferment tains it software is only sold to fight crime and terrorism but a number of lawsuits accuse the n.s.a. probably helping governments of mexico busy the u.a.e. and saudi arabia to spy on journalists and activists and the murder of jamal last year put the firm under a new scrutiny a friend of the journalist ahmed abdul aziz filed a lawsuit saying his phone was monitored by the saudi government shortly before her child g.'s death rafael sutter is an investigative journalist at the associated
5:24 pm
press has been covering the n.s.o. group extensively he explains where the company must be held responsible for how its technology is used. it's one that dog the n.s.o. group for years in fact because on the one hand they say that they they sell a product and what their customers do with that product is between the customers and their own national authority on the other hand and as a group has also said that they investigate allegations of wrongdoing and they suspend customers who behave badly we don't yet fully understand just how much of an insight n.s.o. has into its own customer's behavior and that's a question i hope will see answered sometimes i think that in the n.s.o. group's defense i would be very surprised if it least some of their products weren't being used to genuinely go after criminals and terrorists and and others of that is that being said if you sell to countries like saudi arabia or
5:25 pm
other authoritarian governments then i would hope that a company in that position would ask themselves some very serious questions about how their products are really going to be used and also monitor how their products are going to be used that's not so difficult in the cyprus in cyberspace china's foreign ministry is again warning the united states not to underestimate its determination to protect its interests asian stock markets took a hit on opening after an escalation in the trade dispute between washington and beijing but they weren't as badly affected as the u.s. which suffered its worst losses in 4 months on monday china has retaliated against america's new tariffs fine posing duties of its own on u.s. imports adrian brown reports from beijing. well both the stock markets here in china were down slightly on tuesday but the falls not as great as you might have expected in hong kong though the fall was almost 2 percent that is
5:26 pm
a measure of the nervousness among investors in hong kong worried about where this trade war is now heading meanwhile the propaganda war has begun on the main bulletin on state t.v. last night the anchor read out a very strident commentary in which he essentially said china didn't want a trade war but it was now quite prepared to fight when he quoted president xi jinping saying that the chinese economy is not a pond but a sea a rainstorm can destroy a pond but not a sea we've also been hearing from the editor of the nationalist global times newspaper and he's saying that essentially it may be time for china to start selling the debt it holds in the united states in the form of u.s. treasury bonds and perhaps for china to start reducing its orders from aircraft makers like boeing now the 2 sides still have
5:27 pm
a window for negotiation because the new tariffs the china has announced won't take effect really for at least another 2 weeks and of course the terrorists that president trump raised on chinese goods last week well those tariffs were to fly applied to goods that left china for the united states after midday last friday so there is still a glimmer of hope but the time for those talks to happen is rapidly beginning to run out. ancient class divisions among indians hindus are still a source of hardship for millions of people as the country votes in its general election and news from what's considered the lowest cost and once again turning to politics to be heard 1st reports from south on poor districts in the state of utter pradesh. it's been a life of labor for thoughtful things mainly working in farmer's fields to support his family. but it's also been a life dictated by caste hierarchy. thing in this family or low caste hindus known
