have confined the government of president hadi to the presidential palace suggesting splits in the saudi led coalition but some a binge of aid has the latest. the seat of power for yemen's government is no longer under its control this is the sudden port city of aden where secessionist say they are now in charge fighters from the southern transitional council have seized areas around the presidential palace and military bases. the prime minister's call to cease fire has not worked the government of president obama to harvey is based out of saudi arabia and the man he appointed as governor of aden now heads the separatist movement secessionist said given how the week long road to meet him to change his government and when the deadline expired on sunday thousands of their supporters took to this. streets of aden. we demand this corrupt gang in the liberated southern areas be expelled our youth have sacrificed for the school
these sacrifices cannot go down the drain and see this corrupt gang in power to them we say enough is enough. many people in the queues the government in the north of discrimination since. in one thousand nine hundred the situation has worsened since the war against these began three years ago. we aspire to form a state the coalition must consider cause if not they will be the losers as our country and our state. we are here today holding our ground in the streets we will topple the field government we will topple bin and his government as they've humiliated our people the people. the saudi led coalition was supposed to fight the iran backed with the rebels you could call much of the north including the capital. and the united arab emirates which is part of that coalition has been supporting the separatists in the south. backs the internationally recognized government which no longer has any control in the north or the south but despite
these insists the coalition has been splinted. the position of the u.a.e. remains deeply consistent with other members of the coalition concerning the yemen crisis the foreign ministers meeting last week was good evidence that members of the coalition are united and will take the liberation of yemen as their ultimate goal but instead of liberating and uniting yemen the war seems to have pushed the country to the brink of breaking up some of the job there. has covered the conflict in yemen extensively and has more now on the significance of the latest developments. this is a turning point in yemen because now the session is controlling more areas with aden. and how the moat they're moving one step towards declaring the south and their control we have massive support militarily and financially from the
united arab emirates and this is going to further help them expand their influence it also means that president abbas will have his base in saudi arabia is do is in control over the city his government is besieged city of aden and it seems that is just a matter of days before the internationally recognized government will lose complete control over yemen what does it mean for yemen and for the region definitely more instability more violence and more fighting tribesman war mors i sell and a q a p will definitely try to step in and take advantage of this issue which aden the gulf of aden and babel mend other roads of some of the busiest sea lanes in the world some of the most. busiest ship in a boost for world trade and this is something which is going to raise concern by for the international community particular for the e.u. and the united states or of america also more instability is bad news for saudi
arabia which which set in two thousand and fifteen when it interfered militarily in yemen that its goal is to maintain a unified yemen today it's no longer the case. russian sponsored talks aimed at finding a political solution to the war in syria have begun in the black sea resort of sochi but day one has been punctuated with disagreements interruptions and delays event has been boycotted by the leadership of the syrian opposition the us britain and france where they support a separate u.n. mediated process which itself has failed to get anywhere somebody gets heckled the russian foreign minister when he read a statement from president vladimir putin they accused moscow of killing civilians and some opposition delegates refused even to leave such airport for the talks
because syrian government flags were displayed at the terminal they've now flown back to turkey. the syrian opposition delegation came to participate in the sort she conference from ankara with hopes to push the peace process forward and achieve serious political transition that will bring syria from tyranny to democracy and she freedom and dignity in a peaceful country but we were surprised to see that none of the promises were kept leaving the brutal bombardment stopped the syrian regime flags and slogans removed from the conference banners and we have seen a lack of diplomatic manners from the host country. that's what's lined out here is very charles using search isn't quite a few upsets on day one of these talks. here will this whole national congress of dialogue nearly collapse this morning it was pretty much hanging by a thread there were various pull outs as you say for the last few days opposition
parties have been withdrawing their participation one by one. came down to the point where basically there are only sort of moscow approved in damascus approved opposition platforms here and in any meaningful capacity but russia says that you know that doesn't really matter the important thing for them is that some one thousand five hundred delegates from across the range of syrian political religious social and cultural and business life have been brought here to sochi to talk to one another and they believe that that is the most important thing about this is getting a dialogue moving again can try to restart the whole peace process and eventually go to geneva and rory given all these these troubles how lucky is it that they can actually achieve anything. well i mean as a difficult question i think russia will of course make the most of this make the
best of it the effort they're going to try restarts the whole process of geneva is i think. meaningful one from from their perspective we can hear it's a listen now to an analyst a russian foreign policy analyst called alexander aksyonov who we spoke to earlier on who gave us more scope as view of what this is all about. you do various reasons . the new approaches stumble. and now there is a need to give the new impulse to revitalize these procedures so that is the initial. aim a goal of this of this congress and i know that there was a lot of suspicions of terrorists as persians and various circles not only in the
west in their up world as well but russia tries to explain needs its position and i think it has the right to do so. while those suspicions that he was talking about they are indeed very deep they've kept numerous people on the opposition side of the friends away from these talks but the aim of the sochi congress at least one of the most kind of substantive aims is to bring together participants in what's being called a constitutional committee a constitutional committee which supposedly will get the surat if occasion or the approval or at least of staff and the restorer of the un's representative or envoy to the syrian dialogue and that's will then move towards a some point in the future kick starting the geneva talks once again charles thank you very much indeed the kenyan opposition movement has been declared
a criminal group by the government following the symbolic swearing in of leader. i the stage you know here ration was an act of protest by adding the supporters who say he is kenya is legitimate leader they say who are connecticut's presidential election was neither free nor fair cannot it was formed in himself in december after he won a rerun of august's original vote katherine sawyer has more nairobi. what a day was a bit anticlimactic for many many supporters of the opposition nasa coalition who came to witness the symbolic swearing in of ry low dinner and he did show up but many people who are disappointed say that they are unhappy that the three other main leaders of the coalition did not show up including colossal most your carollo dingell's deputy and was supposed to be sworn in alongside. so we've been hearing
reports that some of the security detail was withdrawn perhaps that's why they did not come but then also there are other people who are saying that way doesn't matter right loading that came he swore by the bible he was sworn in and one of those people here is why there are thank you for joining us just tell us what you feel right now well. i'm not really disappointed because i came here because of regular and he has been sworn in we're going to get the next move you give us the next direction many of us are really fed up with the state of affairs in this country this is our evolution someone like me i'm a forty year old with no job not being i was born in the lobby of been suffering all along and we cannot anymore so a lot of hoax tags on riah loading then he says he's going to use the so-called people's assembly a forum of different stakeholders religious leaders politicians women and youth
groups and so forth and this forum basically has been established with the aim counting governments and has been endorsed by a dozen or so counties in the country in this forum basically supposed to push for electoral reforms and supposed to address and talk about some of the issues that are affecting the country i think that's why the government is so jittery about this because it's not just about the election this people's assembly is can potentially be a very powerful platform to advise. that's the agenda of the opposition and a lot of people within those forums already pledging their legions are. still ahead on the program when nearly one and a half million afghan refugees living in pakistan facing an uncertain future and with air pollution one of the top issues for the european union when you get how one german city is trying to tackle the problem.
how low we've got some quieter weather to come into the middle east over the next few days somewhat clearer skies now it's in the across that basis out of the mediterranean into levant but you can see still a fair amount of cloud up towards the black sea towards the caspian sea and we will see some well rain maybe some heavy snow too just coming across georgia armenia and to azerbaijan along like its way east was the recent area snow that affected northern parts of iran that's now making its way across afghanistan three celsius there in kabul getting up to around six degrees on thursday clear skies do come back in behind my quite shakes on the temperatures baghdad kuwait city struggling to get highs around eighteen or nineteen degrees a bit touch warmer than that's across the arabian peninsula sunday for us here in doha around twenty two celsius but you're only getting up to around eighteen or
nineteen in riyadh over the next couple of days is that when that came when continues to blow its way in a little bit of lift the dust and sand certainly a possibility while the more cloud around the red say fam ounce of clout soup into the eastern side of south africa we had some heavy downpours and natal fifty millimeters of rain in the space of twenty four hours and these heavy showers are set to continue to go on through the next few days but no sign of any right to cape town. order.
from one of the top stories here knowledge there are secessionist forces say they've taken control of yemen's southern port city of aden they reportedly can find the government of president rebel man so hardy to the presidential palace. russian sponsored talks aimed at finding a political solution to the war in syria have begun in the black sea resort of sochi but they've been punctuated by disagreements interruption news and delays. the kenyan opposition movement has been declared a criminal group by the government following a symbolic swearing in of leader rhino dingo. the u.s.
secretary of state and defense minister who had been meeting that counterparts from qatar in washington d.c. ahead of a closed meeting secular state rex tillerson so the u.s. was keen to find a solution to the gulf crisis seen several arab nations cut off all ties with qatar . this dispute has had direct negative consequences economically and militarily for those involved as well as the united states we are concerned by the rhetoric and propaganda employed in the region playing out daily in air mainstream and social media it is critical that all parties minimize rhetoric exercise restraint to avoid further escalation and work toward a resolution a united g.c.c. bolsters our effectiveness so many fronts particularly on counter terror countering terrorism defeating isis and countering the spread of iran malign influence. washington. and with those words from. very significant
because if you think about it from the u.s. perspective what people like u.s. president donald trump care about is national security and they don't often make this argument that the blockade is impacting the u.s. military and also the u.s. economy so they have the secretary of state say that is in its own way sending a message i think one of the more important things that came out of this meeting is an agreement that they signed the basically says the u.s. will work to ensure that qatar's territorial integrity remains intact basically sending a message to the blockading countries this is as far as it goes the question is is president going to get involved and try to end it don't forget it was almost five months ago where he said at the white house you know they need to sit down and settle it and negotiate and if they want to they can come here i'll handle it very quickly nothing really has changed in that time so this is obviously trying to send a message rex tillerson the secretary of state and secretary of defense jim mattis
trying to send a message to the region but really i think for any action to happen and needs to be backed up by the president of the united states given all that and the disputes all of that difference in tone that we saw previously between us into this and how likely is it that the president will move to a position where they are united and things will actually start to change. well we saw him pushback secretary both secretary madison tillerson very publicly at the beginning of this crisis almost eight months ago since then it is appears that his top aides have convinced him that the g.c.c. crisis is a bad thing and what you saw the qatar officials here do here is really stress a couple of points they kept talking about the importance of the u.s. air base there so they're going to pour tons of money in to make it even more hospitable for u.s. troops and talked about how critical it is to the fight against eisel and you also saw the qataris kept mentioning that they're investing in the u.s. economy one hundred billion dollars was the promise basically saying if the
blockade was lifted cantina could be much more so trying to talk in terms of the president of the united states understands he often sees things through the prism of trade and business deals so we're waiting to see if that message got through to him. thank you. the united nations children's fund is warning that around sixty thousand children at risk of starvation in north korea with the situation made worse by international sanctions if you put in place because of north korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs last week the u.s. announced new sanctions on several denies ations and people and on six north korean ships unicef says the sanctions are making it harder to get aid into the country. people across the us actually waiting to hear what president trump says about immigration in his state of the union address republicans and democrats have been debating the deferred action for childhood arrivals act known as dhaka it allows
hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants to live and work in the country has more from los angeles. in l.a.'s busy korea town neighborhood people are following the immigration debate with a sense of dread right now there is you know more anxiety and fear show you than was brought without authorization to the u.s. by her parents when she was just five years old so she has qualified for a doctor but she resents the trumpet ministrations offer of a deal for dreamers in return for drastic cuts in legal immigration a massive border wall stepped up deportations and the end of policies alone legal immigrants to sponsor their family members to settle in the u.s. it's really frustrating and appalling that we're being used as bargaining chips i wouldn't like to throw anyone else under the bus and it's really unfortunate that
they're continuing to further attack or immigrant community like this koreatown like immigrant communities all over the u.s. would be hit hard by president donald trump's proposals according to the u.s. census bureau the number of new immigrants coming to the u.s. from asian countries has exceeded the number of immigrants from mexico for the past five years labor activist can't warren says trump's comments have inflamed racial anger toward immigrants i do think that the trump rhetoric is not only offensive to immigrants to communities of color but it is also a distortion of who we are as a society and who we are as a people and i do think that it is highly political. motivated to motivate a base of people who believe that somehow immigrants pose a threat to our lifestyle alexander's heads the koreatown immigrants workers'
alliance if indeed humanizing our food that is trying to divide the people where we need to keep people together we need to ensure that our multi-racial community and multi-racial finally can thrive and we cannot do that with racist immigration policy in koreatown fear for family the community and the nation's future rob reynolds al-jazeera los angeles. any one and a half million afghans are expected to lose the right to stay in pakistan after the government says it's not going to extend their refugee status legal rights officially expired in december but pakistani cabinet officials extended the state by one month and one hundred reports from a refugee camp impish hour for several decades don had been home to registered and registered of land refugees o.m.'s gave the conflict and

independence comes on the day in which the castle and parliament dominated by those who favor of independence fully suspended the session the would have formally recognize its new leader as close. the only problem is the colors push him on his own self-imposed exile in brussels if you don't attempt to come back here to barcelona he runs the very very real risk of being jailed possibly for thirty years on charges of her belly and sedition for declaring independence for catalonia at the end all for the toba saying that though the constitutional court on saturday said that if he doesn't come here to barcelona for his own invested in person then they would suspend the session completely there is also the possibility the parliament could hold a symbolic session of their own with the possibility of pushing on appearing via live or prettier link up for a speech to be read by somebody else on his behalf but then they run the very real
