soldiers took over the headquarters of the state broadcaster as a p.c. of the reports of explosions and gunfire in the capital harare the army says it isn't a military takeover and mcgarvie and his family are safe this is the moment an army spokesman read a statement on national t.v. wish to assure the nation that user excellence to the president of the republic of zimbabwe and commander. in chief of the different forces. and his family. and sound and their security is good and. we are only doing criminals are around him. committing crimes that are causing social and economic suffering in the country in order to bring them to justice. let's take
a look at some of the key points from the military statement and urged people to remain calm and limit unnecessary movement should the nation the situation would return to normalcy as soon as its mission was accomplished it canceled all military leave and soldiers to return to their barracks immediately it also should zimbabwe's judiciary that its independence is guaranteed and it appealed to the youth of zimbabwe saying the future of the country is yours and that they shouldn't be enticed by quote dirty coins of silver. last week mcgarvie fired his vice president emerson who is widely considered a possible successor to fled the country but promised to return first lady grace mcgarvie has been pushing for his removal for some time she may now be in a position to take charge after her husband is attends prompted the military to weigh in with a warning against purging senior members of the ruling party. kennedy
mcgoo to lives in harare he joins us on the line from there very good to have you with us kennedy magoo to tell us what it is that you are hearing and that you've been seeing on the streets there. today. and what do you make about the comments that they made and the fact that possibly and this is not confirmed obviously the magog is might be under house arrest. i'm just wondering what you making of the comments of the military in the situation i mean they are not saying the words coup obviously but we wonder how you are
reading this situation. all the people who are. true of us who. are usually what we have been. closed. all right kennedy magoo to thank you very much for telling us what is happening on the streets in zimbabwe let's go over to tanya paige she joins us live from johannesburg on morning what you're hearing about developments on the ground and from the military's perspective tanya. sure well the military quite explicit in giving a warning and during the statement that it broadcast live on the state broadcaster having seize control of it although obviously denying that this is
a military takeover they did say quite explicitly very near the end of the statement that our anyone thinking of taking to the streets of of the launching any sort of. violent action would be dealt with quite severely so i think you know this on the one hand saying that this is not a military takeover but clearly when people see that their state broadcaster the mouthpiece of president mugabe has now been taken over by the military not only that but there are an extremely high number of soldiers at the airport and stationed outside some key government buildings that this may not be necessarily what the military says it is however as you pointed out in that sequence there they were moving really to reassure zimbabwe and that their president is safe and so is his family including obviously his rather controversial wife grace mugabe who has
made it pretty clear in the last few weeks and months that she sees herself as a successor to the president himself the unconfirmed reports waters quoting witnesses of some explosions shooting overnight as well so this is no doubt in an easy time for many people in harare and as well as the many people hundreds of thousands of not only zimbabweans but south africans who have close family connections to where into are now currently living in south africa the hearing from south africa we are waiting for official comment but in the meantime any word any response. they hasn't been in if anything official from government yet i think much like everyone else they are waiting to hear exactly what the situation is and also hoping to hear exactly where the president himself is i think that military statement that the president and his family are safe and sound was
a little disingenuous perhaps on purpose there are some rumors that he is under house arrest but as you said we just don't know at this stage nor do we really know the exact whereabouts of the vice president in this among who he sect week or so ago which has led to this mounting tension and brought us to the situation here today having followed on from that of course the second of the vice president and the purging of senior zanu p.f. members we had that warning from the commander of the suburban defense force on monday commander. the military would take action so there's been several days of mounting some attention and zimbabwe the south africans haven't seen anything yet they have promised a statement before ten g.m.t. that's twelve o'clock local south africa as i said a very close friend of zimbabwe however. we are unlikely i think to see anything obviously in support of what's happened certainly south africa as the
current cheer of the regional bodies sadeq is not going to take this very kindly its ability its power in the strength south africa may have in this situation is really. not very it's not very well positioned frankly because it's if it's to sort of placate a coup and military action in listen to it has been pretty unsuccessful of late and as i see it south africa will not want to kind of say anything or do anything to provoke any sort of response or reaction on the ground because there is the possibility. if this were delayed you know dramatically of many zimbabweans crossing the border into south africa and needing assistance ok let's leave it there as you say we're waiting on special comments will come back to you for that let's go over to her or metacity she is in harare and let's talk to on the phone and what we know at this stage is that the military seems have taken over strategic
places including parliament and the streets are empty what more can you tell us well the atmosphere if i can describe it is kids. i'm from up in i was born asking the general perception. i've never experienced this kind of feeling in the air at the moment people are just wondering what is going to happen next that said it would result in planes landing in a link plane landed british airways plane from china's biggest ticket to either side it was dangerous and it was also expected thing and people are coming and going sunday is not as busy as usually is but it is open and it is function under st there are people who have gone to work some people have gone to so it does seem to some extent that life is. business as usual for them because right now they know that this event happened early morning of not since their t.v.
but they don't know what is going to happen next they're going about the business based as they can there's no outward panic not seeing people running away or feeling i think people are just waiting to see what happens next the military are saying that this is not a cool thing they have moved in to deal with criminal elements within the ruling. they say these elements what you each day belies the ruling party and the country do they move in to try and stop that from happening they say the president is facing than the one theory is that we say yes they can not and they keep referring him referring to him as president robert mugabe the hate of state and the commander in chief. you know knowing the situation in the country as you do and i know you've been sitting there for several days keeping an eye on this i mean how much support do you think this will gone to from the locals i mean are it's been brewing for a while what is it that you think they would like to see and what sort of role do you think they would allow the military to play here how far can they go it is with
mixed you have is involved into the matter which parties supported ruling party or opposition the economy had gotten so bad that the poorest of the poor even the middle class people were struggling i think was the is a cash shortage people struggling to able that it was the stain that how long we had the country go on like. there are reasons why we have some support from people . the other side within the ruling party the other faction also has as if money of support as well i think how this will play out is. a military takeover i think in any country isn't really encouraged what people way can be is how long will this last how will the time this imposes go remember also the former vice president and again what is out of those of course who are now waiting because it is a collated that. general chewing out of course the former vice president
leaving are saying is he going to come back when is he going to come back and then what is going to happen next what was planned this week was on battering president carter was meant to address the youth rally as not as nice a constant thing as he was mean to speak to people there and was thinking to hear from him after all they use of promotion what he's going say we don't know that's going to happen. for her let me just ask you talk about the youth and raising youth i mean how much of this is about old gods new god. it is when the factions and his peers are pretty much split between the younger people in the party and the older guys as are these being that and it's the knowledge that the young group of the first lady grace mugabe and the older godling those who supported the liberation. supports. the general and one else
fortune in the war of independence from britain to the is that divide what's been happening for months and months we've been paying are the media the two different by. basically denouncing each other alleging certain things accusing each other since things and there was this feeling from the spy that was anti christian government teacher being that she felt that she was next in line she was making decisions that disturb some people particularly the army general the muslim people did kind of see something brewing i don't think they expected this kind of military takeover so soon but it has happened the key thing now is people are trying to trying to go to work kids are in school now education is what is going to happen in the next room that her ok let's leave it there is never seen anything quite like it on the streets of zimbabwe where planes are still landing and as you're saying business goes on so many people we keeping an eye on the situation we'll update you
as when that happens. the turkish president is in the heart for talks with the qatari amir reza type anyone has been a major supporter of the house since june when four arab countries cut ties and imposed a blockade on cats on tuesday the amir said the saudis their bloc has no desire to end the crisis he also said qatar is looking for sustainable ways to meet its needs of their cause one of our is following the story has a lot to talk about from those two. indeed jane i think the. the gulf dispute is going to top the agenda of the meeting because the turkish president was in kuwait which has been mediating the crisis with no major breakthrough so far and turkey expressed a desire from day one of the crisis that he is willing to help all the parties set aside their differences however there is an issue here because turkey was one of
the first countries to. support to side with sending troops to qatar setting up a military base a move that has angered saudi arabia the high in the united arab emirates and egypt which have issued a statement asking don't vote for thirteen demands including shutting down the turkish military base something which has been rejected by qatar which considers the thirteen demands and interference into a national sovereignty turkey considers itself a regional power so you will continue to use that influence in the region to try to bring all the parties to negotiate a settlement because that ultimately is going to be good news for turkey which hopes to maintain very solid relations with. saudi arabia bahrain and also the united arab emirates and how much of this is about expanding their partnership.
while this has been more pronounced now than we've seen since the start of the crisis turkey stepping in sending cargo planes vessels carrying food to ensure that supplies continue in qatar and trade volume. increase between the two countries just seventy percent over the last few months turkey has largely benefited from that sending food supplies from different parts of turkey into qatar today there is this strategic committee which is going to further expand trade economic trade between the two countries and look into possibilities for qatari investors to expand their investments into. jane yesterday the emir of qatar said that qatar is better than a thousand times better off without the belabors imposing the blockade this gives you an indication that now is determined to look for sustainable ways and create
new a realignment in the region and one of its top destinations now is turkey hopes to build a very solid economic political relationship with color. on the iran iraq border rescuers continue to dig through the rubble of buildings toppled by sunday's earthquake the quake killed more than four hundred thirty people but many victims are still under the debris so the death toll is likely to rise run eight thousand people have been injured the quake destroyed more than fifteen thousand homes leaving seventy thousand people homeless near the quake's epicenter in northern iraq many people say they afraid to return home to. one family that survived. people in the smelly kurdish town in so many a province are trying to recover from disaster for iraqis all of the suffering from the facts of who are in a crisis last year were changed by sunday's both quake near the border with iran.
fergal and his by frazier escaped war four years ago back then their home was demolished in baghdad now once again they have nothing left besides fast and dirt from their home. i can still feel the shake it lasted so long i'm still shaking i just can't get over the shock while there are a lot of the ceiling we just managed to escape officials told us to evacuate the neighborhood for the last two days we have been sleeping in the city parks at night but a couple thank god they have survived a few buildings collapsed during sunday's quake the ones which are badly damaged and are the same so people are afraid to go their home since so with the nights becoming called are in iraq aid groups are providing mats and blankets for those
who fear they have no option but to stay outside. al-jazeera. northern iraq. u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson is in myanmar for talks with a leader and son suchi they made on tuesday at the apec summit in the philippines to listen is expected to focus on rakhine state where an army crackdown has forced more than six hundred thousand people to flee to bangladesh rangar refugees accuse me of security forces of massacres rape and torching villages scott harbor is in manaus capital. u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson here in a producer on wednesday will have two meetings the head of the military with the commander in chief and then also the head of a civilian government on song suchi he met with her on the sidelines of asean summit in manila philippines on tuesday but didn't say anything neither leader said anything after that meeting yesterday tuesday today wednesday they will hold
a press conference in the early afternoon local time now we don't know exactly what will here we do know that the situation with the russians or refugees and the violence in rakhine state will be discussed in both of those meetings probably won't hear too much of the detail coming out of the military meeting we do know though that the united states administration has been in more pressure on the military saying those who have been carrying out these attacks this violent crackdown there were kind state need to be held accountable the government here the military here on monday issued a report saying that they essentially exonerated themselves from their behavior from their actions in rakhine state over the last couple of months saying they did nothing wrong that will most likely be brought up what the what hasn't been coming out from the united states is how things are moving forward with the idea of sanctions reimplementing sanctions on the military leadership in myanmar that's something that's been floated in the u.s. senate but not directly discussed but we'll be hearing from rex tillerson and on song suchi in the afternoon here in a pure. is the country representative at the center for humanitarian
dialogue and he joins us live from vegas to see. rex tillerson is that he's going to be speaking to. the full what is it that he can do what should he be saying to. i mean i think the expectations for what the international community can achieve in general a probably unrealistically high and need to be moderated the u.s. has been to have full in its approach to focus its criticism more on the middle side than on uncensored she out of concern for the democratic transition over all but it's going to be very difficult for them to exercise any real leverage the u.s. doesn't have strong military ties with them on military so that policy options are going to be quite constrained so he'll be there to deliver a tough message but the question is what impact that's going to have this comes
after the military exonerated itself from committing any atrocities having any role in what's happening the slaughter the rape of the rehang what sort of impact do you think that is having on the situation at the moment and how again should tell us and be dealing with that i mean i think what it highlights is the large divide between the domestic narrative and what's happened in the conflict in the international narrative in the domestic narrative not just from the military but from the manama mammal public opinion more broadly is that there were no serious crimes that were committed now obviously that's at serious faults with the testimony that refugees have given across the border in bangladesh and of the concerns of the international community has expressed so it's very difficult i think in any member of the international community including secretary to listen to bridge that divide i mean i think what they should bear in mind though is that by cutting ties or opposing sanctions that's
a risk that you are limiting those channels for dialogue and those limited opportunities for influence that do exist so it's important that even if those ascensions are huge gap between the international community and the memo side that that dialogue continues thank you adam keep up. russia's defense ministry has been accused of lying after releasing what it calls evidence of the u.s. working alongside eisel it turns out the footage was taken from a video game going chalons reports from moscow when russia's ministry of defense accused the united states on tuesday of affectively collaborating with i still in syria it wasn't the first time that it had made such accusations but this time it said it had irrefutable proof photos which were put out on the ministry of defense as facebook and twitter accounts grainy drone images apparently of a convoy being left alone by u.s. forces but it didn't take too long for eagle eyed observers on social media
organizations like the citizen journalists belling katz and conflict intelligence team to see that they had noticed these images before and actually they weren't what they were training they had come from what he was one of them from a mobile phone computer game called the a c one thirty gunship simulator others from this collection of images had come from a two thousand and sixteen video put out by iraqi forces showing them attacking a convoy leaving for leadership it didn't take long after that for the minister of defense to delete them although they stood by their original accusations they have since subsequently admitted that this was a mistake and they're blaming it on a civilian employee at the ministry of defense and say they're launching an investigation. lebanon's prime minister has tweeted he will return home from saudi arabia in the coming days saad hariri also called for calm he said his family would
