the police have not what the protesters have done but the problem behind that the reasons behind that are why are they such a latch ecker and its contents to what's the government's is because of you know the police abusing power and its use firelands was purchased as they should go and again today and that and that makes people think that you know why police are being so i'm called from the boat and even people safety and i am not being protected by the police but you know in the end the other way our lives are being threatened by. going. i am. bolivians have been urged to show peace and respect for the rule of law by the organization of american states after the

a forest of drug trafficking in that area in that comes from that area in bolivia and he goes back there because he has a solid base of of islam of people who are who support him and who have supported him for many years and that's the coca farmers and from there he has been very active in the twitter and he has been tweeting about his solidarity with bolivia for was he solidarity with his supporters who have been protesting in the streets he has also repeated again that he resigned because there was a coup d'etat in bolivia and also he tweeted about the. best order he said against him which has been denied by some politicians here even a former vice president president saying that he doesn't know about any arrests order against morales in any case he could only be prosecuted here at the

deisel in syria 23 dutch mothers asked the court to allow their families to return because of the poor boy living conditions in a camp in northern syria a judge found that only the children must be sent back to the netherlands or insley has more now from the hague figuring out what to do with women and children associated with the enemy isn't a new problem for a country but when you bring eisel into the equation it becomes hugely controversial. at issue in the netherlands what to do about $23.00 dutch women and their $56.00 children under the age of 12 many born in the vast desperate el whole camp in northern syria their families have demanded they be brought home the government had said no thanks excel than i was even a kindler and for ordering in his ruling the judge demanded that the dutch state had a juicy to show it was trying to repatriate the children and their mothers to if the kurdish come command has said so and all within 14 days so if the kurdish resort
authorities saying we're only willing to give back the children if the dutch authorities also take back the women then that's the way it has to be and that has been the kurdish position until now they won't give any children unless the mothers are also brought back among the women there is child who was a little girl was as innocent looking as anyone but a family say she suffered mental health issues growing up was targeted by eisel supporters in the netherlands and persuaded to go to syria to be a bride so a fighter and this is chatty and now she lost a foot in the explosion but she doesn't have children and so she stuck her family devastated we had her passport when we saw that she was running for 2nd travel to syria to possible to wait for yes of course every family did that dutch government don't get their responsibility again they said yes there are dare it's not our problems and it's very hard to to hear that so what might the dutch government do now putting the onus on the dutch authorities to go into northern
syria to get these women and children out is one thing whether the dutch are actually prepared to do it themselves is something else again because they've always said it's too dangerous but the americans have been some may say to that they're prepared to go to al hole to perform the task for them very likely then that the dutch will be trying to outsource their own problem the big problem in any number of european countries is public opinion which overwhelmingly insists anyone who went to syria within the last 5 years knew exactly what they were doing and should lose their rights assuming they are brought home the next question will be what to do with them lawrence lee al jazeera the hague. well meanwhile a spokesman for turkey's interior ministry says his country has begun a program 3 patry captured i saw fighters an american and the german were deported on monday with a danish national expect that the follow firefighters from ireland france and the netherlands to be deported in the coming days will fishel say that just over

a real humanitarian the causes of death at the moment are unclear we will be looking very closely to see how the investigation goes i hope the turkish authorities will be able to investigate family and i'm sure will will want to give the many assistance they might require i do just want to take the opportunity to say on the record that the russian challenge against him that came out at the foreign ministry that he was just by categorically untrue still to come on al-jazeera a change of course for the u.k.'s breck said party by nigel farage says he will not contest more than $300.00 seats next month's election. and the chinese e-commerce giant ali baba breaks new records on the world's busiest online shopping day.

time now for a reminder of the top stories on al-jazeera police in hong kong have shot and critically wounded a protester in another violent day of clashes the city's chief executive carrie lyons has come out to call the demonstrators enemies of the people and opposition politician is expected to be sworn in as bolivia's in to relieve her. as being a strong critic a former leader of a moralist who stood down on sunday and the netherlands must actively help to repatriate the children of dutch women who joined the slumming in syria a judge in the hague said that the victim the children are victims of the actions of their parents. the u.k.'s breaks it party leader nigel farage says he will not
challenge the governing conservative party seats in next month's general election in a significant boost for prime minister boris johnson for irish said that his aim was to stall and he breaks apart he's winning that the sum of vote he says the move would hopefully prevent another referendum and make a hung parliament much less likely johnson has welcomed the situation saying he's glad that there is recognition that only his party can get rex at the un paul brennan has more now from central. this is an extraordinary u. turn by nigel farage who on november the 1st when he launched the bricks of party campaign said that boris johnson's bracks it deal was not rex it's a tall and he vowed to stand his party candidates in all $650.00 seats across the u.k. now he's saying that boris johnson's deal is close enough to that he will do a deal whereby he won't compete against the conservatives it's an extraordinary
setback and you turn for the bracks of party the reaction has been across the spectrum boris johnson the prime minister said he was glad that there was a recognition there's only one way to get done and that was a vote for conservatives but the labor leader jeremy corbyn said that it was a pact between nigel farage and boris johnson and it was a pact with donald trump's backing and that the trump alliance was thatcherism on steroids meanwhile the lib dems leader joe swinson said the conservative party is effectively the bracks it party now they are out the arithmetic is going to be intriguing if the party contests against labor seats it may be that they split the vote in those seats and give labor a better chance of holding on to some of those marginals that would otherwise have been threatened so the impact on the election could be profound but the contradiction in nigel farage his position was probably best summed up by one
commentator who said well look if boris johnson's deal really is brecht's it then frankly the bracks of party shouldn't shouldn't be standing in any seats at all. spain's socialist party says it will act fast at the former government after winning the most seats in sunday's parliamentary election the leader paid a sanchez had hoped that the vote which was the 2nd this year would break the country's political that bloc but with the far right vox party more than doubling its support for the country appears more fragmented than ever before joanna hall has more from madrid this is the final resting place of francisco franco the spanish generals memory well tended despite his often brutal one party rule that ended with his death more than 4 decades ago he's been here in a private family tomb for less than a month franco's final journey began in october when the socialist government ordered the former fascist leaders remains removed from
a grand more the live in madrid famous valley of the forward it's easy of course to see parallels here the memory of franco does all moved in the view of many and then less than a month later the country's 1st far right party in parliament since his death war that doubles its count becoming spain's 3rd largest political force but the reality owes more to post economic crises disaffection with mainstream politics and the threat posed to spanish unity by catalonia his drive for independence it's still early to say which sort of far right we have here because. initially it was a splinter group from the people's party and its leaders came from the people's party it was more of a hard right than a far right party but now we're beginning to see some elements within vox that perhaps have some. some nostalgie form of franco's symes sunday's election
result will only deepen the concerns of the far right with socialist leader pedro sanchez force now to consider a friend john alliance of the left that might even include cattle and probably independence parties. that's an ugly prospect across large swathes of sprain particularly as they watch separatist protesters blocking roads and even the border with france in the north west on monday and as disaffection with politics increases amid signs of economic slowdown in spain so the list of grievances will likely grow there my hopes will help us by stopping benefits for people who don't deserve it i don't think it's normal that people come from abroad to live on state benefits i myself have worked abroad but i didn't go there to commit crimes and live on benefits it's not that the vox party was created in the m.b. to franco and what he stood for but in a country with a living memory of fascist rule the party's popularity could yet unleash sinister

funds to pay for goods and services that they want to import so we have a political stalemate we have an economical crisis just been talking to an economist who said that it's not a question of if there's going to be a collapse here it's a question of if they can stop it from happening the elites cannot agree on any names and the formation of an interim governing body that means there is no economic reform being implemented so you have a you have a paralysis really of a country of the people there are growing more and more frustrated and just to recap some of the demands electricity for example this country wasn't a full 24 hour and interested a day since 975 so these are some of the basic things that people say they want to be implemented by this government and they want a technocratic government to do that certainly the political elite seem to be very much entrenched and as as long as they remain bickering as to how this new
government is going to look these economic reforms not going to be implemented there is no trust in the politicians people will tell you these are incredibly uncertain times. his opposition leader has made his 1st public appearance after being released from house arrest but he's still charged with treason and banned from politics and leaving the country the combo tim government is facing international pressure a for its crackdown on the opposition with the e.u. threatening to cut preferential trade terms when hate reports. the president of the opposition cambodian national rescue party spent his 1st full day of relative freedom still in his home in the capital phnom penh he met diplomats the 1st was the ambassador of france which is one of the countries applying most pressure on the cambodian government. didn't talk to the media but his spokesman said the meetings were an opportunity to say thank you it just to pay a visit to express greetings. and threats

this is the opinion of outlawed rebels who have always taken up the issue of the cambodian government came so because case is under the control of the courts so it's not relevant. the developments come in the middle of an important holiday in cambodia the annual water festival. politics is absent as crews in boats from around the country converge on the capital to mark the end of the whip season when the tunnel asap river changes direction even if the government is able to appease the european union there are big. question marks over whether they'll be any significant space in the short term for the cambodian national risk party prime minister gordon sin has tried very hard to destroy the threat posed by the opposition that undoing the damage completely now seems unlikely. still the members of the band party see the international pressure and attention as an opportunity to try to restart their political careers and resume a campaign to change this country's direction. phnom penh.
