11:52 am
movement being literally reportedly grabbed off the streets by the authorities does this feel like a clampdown i mean does this feel to you like your authority is a trying to extract the brain from the movement from the people who've orchestrated or driven the protests. it certainly does by targeting these high profile members it's why i assume of the place trying to start it so more and other members of these pro-democracy activists or this part about secrets that they will make this clamp down they will make its arrests that's how much we get to find out exactly what those arrests of the charges were for the other 2 that being i guess chow and chan but certainly it's a setback for the pro-democracy movement but we still have more protests planned i think coming days we have a big rally tomorrow we also have general strikes on monday and tuesday so this is particular rally it's been to a half 3 months now and it's not going away so it will come back to since there are
11:53 am
any developments thank you so much. well away from the big protests there have been going on in hong kong smaller rallies have been popping up as well as wayne hay reports not everyone is happy about them thank god i am very aware of the early. in the suburbs of hong kong people are tired and tensions are being brought to the surface oh my way from large scale protests and clashes with police opposing sides are coming together in smaller gatherings on an almost daily basis here handful of protestors fighting for democracy and a hong kong with less interference from beijing was confronted by a pro china group the young generation know nothing about politics nothing about history only money across the road from the shouting match a piece of hong kong far removed from the glitzy high rises in other parts of the city people have been coming to this gym for 50 years there are no frills here and
11:54 am
little support for the protesters who they say a tearing hong kong apart i fear the government i'm afraid of people if you stand on that side. it will be arguing. something that that's what it's like made by the government. often protests break out for a few hours at night in suburban hong kong in this area protesters target a residential compound for police and other emergency services staff they believe the police are now working for beijing and not the people of hong kong this is the same place during the day and there's no sign of any violence or tension people are living side by side with police officers and their family members but this is been a very unpredictable situation and it's more protests pop up in different parts of hong kong more people more communities are being affected by day the damage of previous nights is still evident there's no point fixing it yet trouble could break
11:55 am
out again at any time on all sides people are growing weary after what's been a long fight i just witnessed how can can go back to the day before everyone's then to get there is on the way with no end in sight to the protests it may be a long wait for those who want to see old hong kong return or those fighting for a new one to emerge when hey al-jazeera hong kong. moving on battles around yemen's port city of aden are exposing growing rifts in the saudi m.r. r.t. coalition the 2 countries have been fighting to see rebels in the country since 2015 yemen's internationally recognized president hardy saudi arabia to intervene to stop the u.a.e. military from attacking government forces in and around age and now the u.s. says its force has been targeting quotes terrorists following attacks on coalition forces at the airport in aden now the saudis and the allies in yemen's war but
11:56 am
they've backed rival factions in the battle for aden the u.a.e. supports separatists who want to make southern yemen an independent country as it was prior to $990.00 while the government troops are backed by saudi arabia where hardy lives in exile is alexy o'brian. this is said to be the aftermath of strikes in aden yemen internationally recognized government is furious the u.s. bombed its position. allowing separatists to retake territory they had lost to saudi government forces 24 hours. both sides pulling in reinforcements to battle over a divided southern city and a country fractured by years of war like at me when i'm lost in modern all aden governorates are safe now we're dealing with some pockets and terrorist hideouts which are sadly involved with what he's called the legal government. yemen's
11:57 am
government can damage the u.a.e. bombing of its forces saying it had caused hundreds of deaths and injuries in a statement its defense ministry said it held the emirates responsible for what it called a blatant aggression and president. urged saudi arabia to intervene again separate us from the southern transitional council a part of the saudi iraqi coalition that's fine the rebels less than 3 weeks ago they took over the city of aden the state of the saudi backed internationally recognized yemeni government. on wednesday government forces took the nearby coastal town of zinjibar before pushing into aden on thursday though they withdrew again president had he said it was to spare the city and its people blow out label of not only our situation is good in the troops morale is high we're heading to. and we will free every inch of the southern territory the violence has exposed an apparent rift in the saudi u.a.e.
11:58 am
coalition each country backing opposing sides in southern yemen which was a separate country until $990.00 the saudis and their artists are divided on this issues because for this from a saudi perspective what they had always wanted is to ensure that they are not the threat that can operate across the border and launch attacks or its rocket attacks or or drone attacks into saudi arabia what the united arab emirates wants to do instead of course is to establish an independent state and these 2 objectives to do not align with the any governments asked for the united nations to meet on the iraqi strikes 60000 people have left the city attains of thousands remain in harm's way as the fighting intensifies brian al jazeera. well staying with that story sami hamdi is a middle east analyst and editor of the current affairs magazine international interest he explained earlier the rifts in the saudi iraqi coalition i think it's
11:59 am
important to understand that the u.a.e. have been backing the son of separatist for quite some time and we're talking actually a few years now when hamad bin zaid initially wanted to back the 7 separatists he went to been sent men and he told him listen bin cement there are only 2 powers that can fight the who is on the ground realistically the other is slower the muslim brotherhood who do you eat despise with the venom and there are the sudden separatists when the saudis expressed concern and indeed international economic government expressed concern that the u.a.e. were backing the 7 separatists binns aid would tell been sent men that this is the lesser of 2 evils and that he could handle the independence movement since then the u.a.e. has been going around the ports within southern yemen taking over those ports taking over psychiatrist essentially expanding its maritime policy once it's cemented that it gave it fulfilled its promise to the so the separatists and allow them to take over added now the problem here is that it's very interesting to hear the calls in saudi to intervene implying saudi hasn't been enough to intervene against the u.a.e. because essentially the saudis now are in
12:00 pm
a very strange situation they don't want to throw away their lives with the u.a.e. they realize is that humiliating situation for them and now been said men is caught in this very hesitant situation in the beginning when the southern separatists are being driven back after they took i did initially been so many rode the wave he's sort of the yemeni party is united so he decided to back them in knew that they would retake i didn't so he wanted to be able to say i supported you in this now the son of separatists are taking territory again from mad and taking over territory against saudi arabia is not sure whether to support that because we have to ask you question what do you even dared to launch airstrikes against the groups backed by saudi they wouldn't unless they knew that saudi was hesitant unless they knew that saudi was contemplating letting go of their support for the international recognized government ok the weather is next then. a $1000000.00 on offer for the capture of a top colombian rebel peace negotiator after he vowed to take.
