11:02 am
the day he's. announcing some sanctions which are going to have absolutely no effect whatsoever on the turkish government and to compound the error he's sending rice president pence to encourage where he's sure to come in for a very difficult a series of negotiations it's mission impossible the turks will react with scorn and it's a total misunderstanding of the turkish psyche when you listen to the president out on statements you've carried a portion of it as well as the kind of coverage you know very jingoistic picture out of coverage wall to wall 24 hours a day on the turkish t.v. and there's very little room for i don't want to. accept any media ceasefire which let's remember is that is the call by the trumpet ministration or to actually negotiate with with the syrian kurds which is absolutely nothing you know if there was a functioning interagency process in in washington trump would never have done what

11:04 am
russians and the russians have now become the power brokers i doubt whether there will be a clash in because the forms must be buzzing or will continue to do so the next 24 hours between moscow and ankara and russia will use influence on ankara to use its influence with the opposition forces not to get into a clash with the or with the syrian government forces but beyond that i think russia will work out a deal whereby the turks will have a buffer zone not by agreement with the united states but by agreement with the with the russians are somehow exceeded to by the government of damascus and what's missing in this equation is the u.s. which is frankly you know just taken itself out of the equation the pending more head of the news al including. mass protests in spanish courts sentences separatist leaders and long jailed. concerns about the fairness of

11:06 am
sticks and knives they say they're here to defend their democracy real. or not but of course we're scared but we managed to paralyze the city and turn it into a ghost town to show our frustration with our leadership the 81 year old president wants a referendum to change the constitution so that he can run a 3rd term in office but his political opponents are against a referendum they don't trust the president to organize an impartial vote like now versus. need unharnessed leader. treats all of its citizens equally irrespective of their ethnic origin fluffing asked if any with. the with. the ethnic forlornly make of the majority in guinea and yet never has a full only been in power many of them are out protesting accusing the government of arresting them and discriminating against them. this is one protester that has just been arrested in this is what's happening throughout the capital and the

country paramilitary police deployed to try to arrest and stop any form of violence. security forces shot dead several protesters and scores are injured human rights watch accused the government of banning street protests for over a year now and cracking down on dissent presidential elections are a full year away but the political deadlock has already set in there is a sense of fear and apprehension of what is to come nicholas hawke al-jazeera cannot create. well to spain now where protests have erupted in barcelona over the sentencing of 9 catalan separatist leaders they were sent to prison for their role in the region's failed bid for independence thousands of cattle and separatists clashed with police protesters blocked access to barcelona's airport and more than 100 flights were canceled on monday spain supreme court delivered sentences of between 9 and 13 years in prison sana guy

11:09 am
a general election in his sights next month the spanish prime minister peres urged dialogue took a firm line on the supreme court's verdict or you. can blow today exemplary judicial process has concluded but at the same time confirms that the sinking of a political project has failed in its attempt to obtain internal support and international recognition leaving behind pain and confrontation on the front clearing of coexistence in catalonia but the within hours of the sentencing protesters came out onto the streets and gathered here at the main square in barcelona city center they say they are part of what is being called the democratic tsunami but even but if there were one against the bus i think what is happening is shameful but i think the conviction is really unfair and i don't understand how this can happen in the 21st century and you were here once again ok. i'm here
11:10 am
because i think the trial has been a complete fraud has been a trial that human rights international organizations of the net was having a lot of regularities i think we have to denounce it and do some a comparative thank you. but not everyone sees it like this the castle a nationalist movement has itself become more divided between groups that support more direct forms of action and those who oppose it politics here is more fractured and there is no majority backing for secession solving the cattle and crisis is as allusive as ever and in spite of the sentencing a long way from being resolved on it i have all al-jazeera barcelona. to mexico now or at least 14 police officers have been killed in a single attack that occurred just hours before president on dress manuel lopez obrador delved that he was getting to grips with the country's high murder rate his
11:11 am
speech was overshadowed by monday's killings which happened in in mitchell can state where violent turf wars between vava drug cartels a common john heilemann sent us this update from mexico city. so mexico's president and his head of public security came out on the morning of monday and gave a press conference in which they said it's nothing to boast about but we think we might just be getting on top of the murder rate in the country they called it a point of inflection in the homicide rates in the country and they said that what they're doing is continuing to send out the national guard that a newly formed and quite militarized police force out into key hotspots in the country to draw and deal with things and also having social programs that would try and give employment to people to give some hope put it money in the pocket of people who otherwise might be tempted into organized crime so the message was quite positive coming from the top and then the news came out that image 2
11:12 am
a can the state in southwest mexico police officers have been. killed by presumably organized crime in that region now michu a kind is a state in which there's different criminal organizations battling over it one of the strongest of those organizations if not the strongest is the cartel new generation and there were banners left with the burnt out vehicles of the police seem to was signed as if they were from that cartel now sometimes those banners can be used misleadingly but that is a strong organization in that part the country that has been involved in murdering policemen and law enforcement authorities before now the president obviously and the head of security would say things are getting better little by little in the country i think one of the worries that perhaps analysts that we've talked to have had is that the national guard may be that they're not being rolled out to all
11:13 am
areas of the country and taking up the law enforcement activities as fast as they could do some or even worried about more of the same ahead on confrontation of organized crime using another. quite blunt force to try and put a stop to the it didn't seem to work for past administrations why would it work now but what happened on what's happened in the last 24 hours in mexico a sign that the government still is grappling with the problem and a sign that the problem remains and that more death tragically is still happening. brazil's northeastern by the state has become the 1st to declare an emergency after a mysterious oil spill contaminated dozens of beaches the army as well as city and state officials are involved in the cleanup all washed up along more than 2000 kilometers of brazil's caused gabriel is under has more now from a say on brazil's northeastern coast. the situation is still very critical in the

beaches here in the northeastern brazil there is still crude oil that is washing up on the beaches here in more than $150.00 different locations in an area that's nearly 2000 kilometers long no matter where this oil is coming from it's already having a devastating effect on some marine life now this is video that's very hard to look at it is a video of a marine sea turtle that was rescued near the state of by. this turtle had swallowed some of the crude oil and was about to die but it was rescued and these veterinarians there are trying to save the turtle by cleaning out the oil from its mouth this just gives you an idea of the kind of work that's being done to try to save as many animals as possible and the question is where is this oil coming from the brazilian government continues to say that this oil they believe is coming
11:15 am
