and announced its agreed to receive greater military help from turkey but that. after an as an office site is receiving support from home this is known to all by say raj with his lawful and legitimate government and not receiving any support currently based on us why decide and provide them with the assistance we can afford . this is a proxy conflict that splits the middle east and north africa and beyond the u.a.e. saudi arabia egypt and russia have all given greater or lesser assistance to have to but if we have to or might topple the government of national accord has spurred turkey into overt action for turkey their interest is not libya itself anybody who looks at a map of the mediterranean will see that egypt to turkey south south cyprus greece and potentially libya if it falls on the half that and therefore goes into the u.a.e. or bit is forming a sort of maritime choke hold on to turkey for taking libya is the final chance to prevent this chokehold from taking place although libya's g.n.a.t.
11:03 am
has ratified the security and military cooperation deal it struck with turkey last month it's not immediately clear what kind of military support turkey might offer libya or when but it reinforces turkey's role in influencing libya's future like with syria russia and turkey have taken different sides increasing their diplomatic leverage and corporation. we russia by the way are in permanent contact with mr seraphina's government with marshall have to we continuously communicate with our partners including those in turkey in europe in other countries in our opinion the best solution would be to find compromise between the 2 sides of the conflict. at the u.n. al-jazeera asked the secretary general spokesman for his take on turkey's military assistance i think the secretary general a couple times yesterday was very clear in his expression and frankly of his i would say is frustration at the situation in libya of the constant flouting by

stability is a priority today and it is a cornerstone for the protection of their country 5 years ago mr diaz service education minister in a cat's government now he's promised to be a unifying force and has asked the country to bury its divisions and give him a chance not everyone is prepared to do that many see him as part of the old political order they want overhauled they want someone that resent us you know and as. our guys say is not related to anyone from all the parties and all the politicians this country and doesn't belong to the whole sectarian and also. and the idea is that we've been 60 days on the streets and our demands are very clear. lebanon has suffered from nearly 2 months of often violent and disruptive street protests over government corruption spiraling inflation and a dire economic situation but there are those who believe mr can succeed look now
11:06 am
and lebanon is suffering serious military and economic pressures and risks a social explosion the current social revolution may lead to insecurity and instability and we all have to help the app is a technocrat and specialist and everyone should understand that the former university professor was not elected unanimously the large influential sunny bloc led by the former prime minister saad hariri did not support mr diablo or nominate its own candidate he was backed by the predominately shiite hezbollah alliance the media in israel has already described mr diablo as hezbollah's man. and this shows that as well as dealing with lebanon's pressing domestic issues he was also juggle the interests of outside powers such as iran syria the us and israel which have all played a part in the country's political instability. and was after mr diablo accepted the nomination people were still out protesting although in fewer numbers but in sunny areas of beirut and lebanon the 2nd largest city tripoli there were reports of
11:07 am
roads being blocked and tires being burned mr diablo begin talking to all parties this weekend but it's clear that not everyone wants to listen. but there's still a lot of talking to be done before hasn't he is able to head a new government and that process can still take months but the question is how will his nomination translate for the lebanese people and will it be enough to stop the violence and the demonstrations tony burke 3 al-jazeera beirut. protests have started up again in new delhi and elsewhere in india the go to citizenship law that opponents see is anti muslim 3 protesters were shot and killed on thursday hundreds were detained the new law makes it easier for refugees and migrants from 3 neighboring countries to get indian citizenship but it excludes muslims protesters say it goes against india's secular constitution so business is in new delhi where more protests are taking place i'm standing here in front of jamie i the university
11:08 am
where some of the 1st protests against their controversial us citizenship law started and now all of these people are chanting for freedom over here. yesterday they were the last of protests across the country 3 people died during the protests but most of these death have happened in b.g.p. which is the ruling party of truth states now these people are not actually allowed to gather even now section $144.00 which. doesn't allow people to protest or gather more than 4 people at a time it has been imposed but these people are saying that they are not going to baghdad now curfew has been imposed in the state in mangalore and they did that even as of the services have been cut down in certain areas. and now these
11:09 am
protests there are some more protests by the pym army which is the so-called untouchable group who are protesting. in another part of delhi but like yesterday it is expected that most of these people are going to be arrested and. people here are saying that they are not going to stop protesting now what is also interesting what what we have seen when we went to the state is that where people were the men couldn't come out the women started coming out in large numbers from their homes to protest against this controversial law. on any other day these markets in india would have been heaving with people now all the shutters are down and police can be seen standing in every corner. many of the residents here have instead been doing this. mothers and sisters of students of
11:10 am
good muslim university where police crackdown on protesting students have now taken the movement outside the campus they too are now protesting against the new citizenship amendment act a law that allows religious minorities from neighboring countries to apply for indian citizenship the legislation specifically excludes muslims how might a man protest approach has started because of the police brutality against students of m.-u. and john mia. no not how we are housewives we are now on the streets for the future of our children the residents here say they have never felt this anger before you know this so there's anger not just against the citizenship amendment act which which of course is there but also against the police brutality the crackdown on the internet and on allowing people to assemble and protest peacefully so i think that has that has increased the scope and the width of the issues that are being
11:11 am
protested regardless of your views on the citizenship amendment act you should be there protesting against this kind of crackdown on the right to protest and the right to criticize and the right to freedom of speech and expression. security forces are here in large numbers. gas and rubber bullets the security forces of here are saying that these women don't have the right permission to protest over here the women are saying that they have gone to all the required authorities to get that permission but that has not been forthcoming and now it's a standoff. in many parts of the country including the capital new delhi the government has imposed restrictions on public gatherings of more than 4 people across the country civilians have come out to protest nevertheless and have been detained while the government is willing to review provisions within the law they
11:12 am
