lyme richelle carey this is out there alive and oh ha also coming up celebrations and high expectations in zimbabwe has the country swears at its first president at almost four decades. argentina's president calls for an investigation into the disappearance of a navy submarine that's been missing for more than a week now. and after decades of being banned from u.s. t.v. tobacco companies will be back on the airwaves but not by choice. egypt's military has launched a campaign into sinai after two hundred thirty five people were killed in an attack on a mosque president has promised to respond with brutal force the attack at the mosque and they're all of it as the worst ever in the sinai region hommage engine reports
8:02 am
. the bomb and gun attack happened during friday prayers at the other older mosque in in egypt's northern sinai peninsula local sources say the attackers planted explosives and then opened fire on worshippers while the sermon was underway. for. looks like it was a. lot. not really clear motive was i know it's my responsibility yet but very possibly. they have targeted to use the mouse. president i'm going to put that has c.c. convened an emergency meeting of security officials hasn't had this these tragic event act of terrorism will make us more robust more strong of a bottle against terrorism we cannot be intimidated i will result cannot be dented
8:03 am
we would remain more united following this event the army would take revenge and they will restore order and security with an iron fist in the following day. egyptian forces have for years battled armed groups in the country's rugged and remote sinai peninsula attacks on security forces have been frequent like this car bomb explosion the targeted a police station in a lot in two thousand and fifteen really is i know there's been a lot of. fighting between isis that security forces there for years now. and. in a lot of. area as shock sets in and an investigation begins the egyptian government has declared three days of mourning. and is it. a marsh hour is the arab center for research and policy studies that's where he is here and says isis and fluence has changed the nature of attacks in the sinai. been to southern fourteen
8:04 am
something very unique to egypt happened it was the first all local organization local egyptian organization declared its legality to an international organization and in that case i s and that was the birth of sinai province in november twenty fourth deen and it was since then it was literally the most powerful state actor in egypt's modern history. capable of operating in a conventional special forces like way capable of using light artillery capable of using guided missiles guided antitank and aircraft missiles and fighting partying a conventional way partly in a guerrilla warfare way but also using a long campaign of urban terrorism so that you know the tribal code here was violated the first time attack almost the first time attack on. usually the indiscriminate attacks it's either targeting cops or targeting soldiers and
8:05 am
officers from the army or the police or that sometimes targeting israel but the other attacks are very very discriminatory especially when it comes to informants so if there's somebody was accused to be an informant they target him they try to avoid his family or his friends or the people around him the same thing applies with some of the tribal tribes that the militia tribesmen who fight along the army they target these specific groups of tribesmen but they don't attack the whole tribe so this was this is new in terms of its belief that at the end in terms of the indiscriminately targeting a large section of the society. zimbabwe has a new leader the first and thirty seven years and marson men and was sworn in on friday and harare he's promised to create jobs and compensate white farmers whose lands were seized he's also paid respects to robert mugabe who was forced to step down the middle of reports. a new and upholding democracy is now in this and one on
8:06 am
god was describes his ascent to power even if it took military intervention to end drought but mugabe's presidency tens of thousands of zimbabweans waited for was to watch magog was smearing into office and inauguration meant to cement the veneer of a politically driven solution from within the ruling zanu p.f. party once again not to be processed. we can do in the present and future. a nation friend. when i was promised to implement economic reforms that would uplift the lives of millions of zimbabweans left jobless in a battered economy and work toward stimulating local industries as well as compensating white farmers for the land they lost under previous policies has also vowed to fight corruption tall order given the corruption allegations faced by many members of his ruling party often from politicians we have learned that there is
8:07 am
a gulf between what they say and what they actually do the same government that is coming from from the same party that elites know from his people two million jobs and really did in those years of need to create. enjoys firm military backing from the same army that in two thousand and eight intervened in elections lost by mcabee ensuring he stayed in power one of the major things that we want to know is that we're faced with an election and what happens if this new president loses that election the military be able to hold their noses of taking the direction say we respect the will of the people when gaga has promised free and fair elections next year he still has u.s. sanctions hanging over his head from his time as serving the regime for what it called ax to undermine democracy but when i got worse is now is the time to reengage with the west for people here president was certainly made all the right noises talking directly about the needs of everyday zimbabweans he's moved away
8:08 am
from traditional political issues instead addressing people's concerns about his presidency but the worry is that zimbabweans could one day face a crisis of expectation with apparently well intentioned economic and political plans unlikely to work overnight from either miller al-jazeera harare zimbabwe. argentina's president has ordered an investigation into a missing marine the san juan disappeared more than a week ago with forty four crewmembers on board investigators are looking into evidence of a possible explosion near its last known location and reports in the naval base in the city of marjah. the hope the prayers the expectation expressed here at the model plus a naval base the home of the missing submarine the air race so one turned to anger and despair the families of the forty four crewmembers were told the face of their loved ones. there are still people with hope but i think that's it is
8:09 am
time to look for the body they don't want to say it's which is why we feel empty but there's nothing more to do but pray and lay them to rest. he loved his job was totally dedicated this was his last voyage i'm devastated they want to know why news of an explosion on board shortly after the submarine lost contact on the van with the fifteen took so long to be revealed where they kept in the dark. president has promised a full inquiry and to answer the families and the rest of argentina. i'm here to guarantee that we will continue the search especially now that we can count on the help of the international community and the technology that they have available we hope to find the submarine in the next few days. the navy high command
8:10 am
is likely to be removed and despite the frustration and sadness as it did terminations to keep searching. you know remember until we have firm evidence of where the submarine is we cannot reach any conclusions believe nothing to chance there's a strong force reaching the remaining uncovered area that operation involves ships aircraft and undersea rescue equipment from more than ten countries often in severe weather conditions while their families more in argentina result in what when wrong who is responsible and what should happen now but with the sun one possibly several hundred meters of the bottom of the south atlantic ocean those questions may never be satisfactorily answered and argentina must assess his relationship with his navy as it comes to terms with one of its worst tragedies in recent years that i'm sure there are others here a model bladder karats prime minister just has apologized to people from the
