12:00 pm
debates and discussion this is a lot of misunderstanding and distortion even the only argument i find against that is all over. see the world from a different perspective on al-jazeera it's impossible to underestimate the size and scale of the economic crisis it's not just about the billion trillion dollars of debt it's not just about the banks it's not just about the government it's about real people. the palestinian prime minister convoy comes under attack in gaza.
12:01 pm

12:02 pm
convoy of the prime minister had crossed the area as checkpoint which is controlled by israel is traveling a kilometer distance to the checkpoint that is controlled by the palestinian authority and that's where the attack took place we're hearing that there was gunfire first and explosive device went off hitting the tail end of the convoy and hitting at least two cause we can't confirm the promised wasn't hurt he was actually coming to gaza to inaugurate a desalination plant within the strip itself clearly water is a very big issue there so this attack took place around about ninety minutes ago now he's been speaking on television at you know gratian of the desalination plant he says this won't stop the palestinians from uniting this he's determined to keep going into gaza he says that this attack is not going to stop him but clearly it's
12:03 pm
a very serious and supposedly one of the serious most serious incidents hussein very long time in the gaza strip. all right emraan imran khan live for us there in ramallah. dozens of people who have escaped a rebel enclave near syria's capital damascus have reached a reception center in government controlled territory more than one hundred people have so far been allowed to leave eastern guta as part of an evacuation deal between the rebels and russia the united nations the u.s. is calling for an immediate cease fire to allow in humanitarian aid. is live for us in gaziantep on the turkey syria border so allan what more on those evacuations. well we know that the united nations that agreed well with the russians and with the groups in part of the enclave that they would be able to get some injured people out we're told that about one hundred people have left over the last few
12:04 pm
hours but the united nations estimates are somewhere in the region of a thousand people who need or didn't need medical treatment and about seventy of them are so argent medical treatment so there's no idea at this stage just how many of that hundred that is in the first batch to leave require the argent medical treatment and obviously the united nations will be hoping that this is just the start of a process which will be ongoing over the coming hours and days no number of people have managed to escape the fighting under their own steam and some of them are in eastern guta along the suburbs of the south and part of damascus and they've been telling people exactly what they've experienced during the onslaught in ghouta over the last few days and we all love though. we were about two hundred people living in a cellar without light or electricity and very little food it was impossible to leave because of the events many people decided to leave and head to duma and only forty
12:05 pm
of us stayed behind in that cell and we decided not to leave until the syrian army entered the city. we were afraid for our children who would get them down into a tunnel of men would stay upstairs some woman couldn't take the pressure or lack of oxygen in the tunnel so they'd stay upstairs with the men that other women would go down that the children. and so on there is a many strands said to the conflict in syria and there is a battle raging around the town of afrin to the north what more on that. well the turkish military see in the last few hours that they have managed to surround the turnover for a new remember that that has been the main target of this large offensive we've seen over the last week or so or with this free syrian army backed up by the turkish military sweeping towards afrin city through afrin province and we know that a number of cones and villages have fallen to that force the turks know see that
12:06 pm
the city has surrounded the militia the y.p. g. . kurdish fighters say that that's not actually the case although they see that the tanks on the edge of the town and that they're shelling all the main roads around our friend they're not actually surrounded at this point you'll also recall that the white p.g. called on people to form a human shield against the assault by the f a c. and the turks asking them to come to the city hall entirely to be there to put themselves between the turkish and free syrian army guns and the why p.t. itself the reports circulating in the turkish media including some video which can't be verified that the white b.g. is actually stopping people from leaving. through and we of course can't confirm that but it shows that there is a propaganda battle being fought as well with conflicting claims on both sides as
12:07 pm
well as a military offensive which apparently is is very strong in the last few hours done enough rent or i don't fish a life or a stair in gaziantep now back to our top story the breaking news story out of gaza the attack on the convoy of the palestinian prime minister rami hundred eleven go back to imran khan has been following this for us from ramallah so iran has anyone claimed responsibility for this attack at this point. no one's claimed responsibility but the palestinian presidential spokesman in the president's office of issued a statement blaming hamas for the attack they've said this is an attack on palestinian unity now hamas haven't reacted as of yet but they have arrested the palestine t.v. cameraman who is covering the event and confiscated his footage now hamas are actually the defacto power when the superstitiously it's run by the palestinian
12:08 pm
authority but hamas are responsible for security there so it's likely that hamas will react in the coming hours but this is a very strong statement from the palestinian president's office blaming hamas for the attack iraq on live for us there in ramallah. now least three people have been killed in an attack on a military facility used by yemeni forces backed by the united arab emirates the car bomb was detonated near a military kitchen in yemen's port city of advent witnesses say ambulances have been taking victims to the hospital the somali parliament has banned a port company owned by the united arab emirates from working in the country that follows a deal signed earlier this month between d.p. world ethiopia and the breakaway region of somaliland somalia doesn't recognize the deal and is accused of dubai based company of undermining its sovereignty and violating international law somaliland declared itself the republic in one thousand
12:09 pm
nine hundred ninety one but it's not recognized by mogadishu or most other countries abdi smale someone is a professor and research fellow at the university of pretoria he joins us now from pretoria in south africa via skype good to have you with us so does somalia really have any say in somalia lands affairs here given that it's ruled itself independent in one thousand nine hundred one. well as you noted earlier on that nobody recognized in the world of the republic of someone who then. the only leverage that the somali government in malaysia has is diplomatic but not in terms of military or police or any governments at all so it's the diplomatic leverage that they're trying to use to derail this particular vehement between dubai world and to some folks you know. and. what effect is some are the somali parliament's
12:10 pm
decision likely to have on this court operation i think it's mostly symbolic i think as you know and as you know that the saudi government went to the other meeting in cairo where indorse the position of the somali government against the wind well i think what they're trying to do what the government is trying to do is to respond to this threat to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country but that fortunately the government of somalia in the show has been so incompetent that it has been unable to to separate what was developing into why and . and such that bonderman have to act in where the government should have done this long time ago and what implications does this have then for relations between somalia and somaliland i don't think it changes anything because the regime in her gaze as suspicious or jim by by or somebody folks. will look changed at the
12:11 pm
top but i think what this signals is that i don't believe and other nations who should be coming to the support of the somali people have been ignorant about what's taking place and do why and do i work as a unit trying to undermine the ability of someone who used to overcome the civil war which is quite tragic because the african union is danced by the saudis but not the arab league get to speak with the ab the mind some of their leisure. just signed an oil field concession deal with the emirate of abu dhabi despite the ongoing blockade against aha the agreement will allow iraqi companies to continue developing and operating offshore oil fields the united arab emirates egypt behind and saudi arabia have imposed an embargo on qatar since june twenty seventeen a huge qatar of supporting terrorist groups doha denies the accusations are still

12:15 pm
palestinian presidential spokesman issued a statement blaming hamas for the attack. dozens of people who've escaped a rebel enclave near syria's capital damascus have reached a reception center in government controlled territory more than one hundred people have so far been allowed to leave eastern as part of an evacuation deal between the rebels and the russian military at the united nations the u.s. is calling for an immediate cease fire to allow in humanitarian aid. at least three people have been killed in an attack on a military facility in the yemeni port city of add in the car bomb was detonated near a military kitchen used by yemeni forces backed by the united arab emirates. now the u.s. has bad britain's assessment the russia is likely responsible for poisoning a former spy and his daughter in the u.k. secular state rex tillerson says those responsible must face serious consequences so i guess cripple and his daughter remain in critical condition in hospital russia denies any involvement but to be phillips reports the british police and military
12:16 pm
are still combing all over the town of salt but they and the government is now believe they have some monsters that circus creep paul and his daughter were poisoned with a nerve agent developed by russia and that leads the prime minister to one of two conclusions either this was a direct shot by the russian state against our country or the russian government lost control of its potentially catastrophic league damaging nerve agent and allowed it to get into the hands of others she presented the russians with an ultimatum. we must now stand ready to take much more extensive measures. mr speaker on wednesday we will consider in detail the response from the russian state should there be no credible response we will conclude that this action amounts to an unlawful use of force by the russian state against the united kingdom . but from russia so far blanket denial vladimir putin's spokesman says
12:17 pm
surrogates group all work for british intelligence the incident happened in britain so it has nothing to do with russia it seems that anglo russian relations are bound to get significantly worse now and the british will be hoping for international support from european and nato allies as they seek to put pressure on moscow but what measures can britain take that will really be felt in the kremlin diplomatic expulsions sanctions against powerful individuals both seem likely but their impact may be limited. to me is under such it has adapted to a hostile climate of international relations british national commercial ties. so. things of symbolic nature do not hurt russia anymore because they expect for the investigators on the ground an unusual and unexpected
12:18 pm
test of their expertise for britain itself a crisis that will test its continuing stature in the world barnaby phillips al-jazeera london. russia's president vladimir putin is widely expected to win a fourth term in elections on sunday despite frequent protests against him in the country's largest cities but while you may be not so popular in the more liberal urban centers for many russians there is no one but putin russia correspondent worry challenge reports from the town of glitch. this is the real russia as you're often told here isn't found in the biggest cities for that you've got to turn up the car radio and hit the road leave moscow in st petersburg for a smaller places where the mere putin support runs high on. so we've chosen the town of glitch four hours from the capital that's a day. which. is where you and alexander live the
12:19 pm
couple in their eighties kind and hospitable and both staunch putin voters. but he is a very almost man he would never say anything he didn't mean and if a person is all honest speaks genuinely and his deeds do good you can say only positive things about such a man. they see putin as a strong leader and were particularly impressed by the recent state of the nation speech where he pulled back the veil on secret weapons development. of. lived through a tough history with his country we started our lives in a terrifying war there were starvation and losses and we understood this with our countries the ninety's undermined everything so much uncontrollable times but putin slowly went in the right direction and brought us to the moment where we can see ourselves as a state able to take on a man's tasks again. after talking and evening routine watching the
12:20 pm
news unlike internet savvy youngsters older russians still get much of their information from t.v. most of it state controlled there's a good reason why the support of people like alexander miller is so important for vladimir putin and that's because when it comes to actually showing up on election day pensioners are the most reliable voters in russia. not everyone here is so enthusiastic go. out on the frozen river volga ice fisherman waits patiently for the bites but when it comes to the elections nicholai isn't impressed with the quality of the catch. whom to vote for there's no choice no candidates i think all vote for putin i'd like him to catch the thieves and mend our roads he's reinforcing the army at least that's something but there's no one to choose
12:21 pm
a soon as any candidate appears to slightly challenge him he gets ground immediately such disenchantments backs up the view that putin support may be brittle high only because of the lack of alternatives and worryingly for the kremlin state pollster just noted a twelve percent drop in putin's ratings in russia's big cities. but alexander miller's allegiance is steadfast in their long lifetime russia has marched to very different music. and they're happy with the man currently calling which you. will reach alan's al-jazeera english russia. a u.s. president donald trump has blocked what would have been the largest tech merger in history singapore based chip maker broadcom was looking to buy american rival qualcomm for one hundred seventeen billion dollars trump says the deal is a threat to national security for com said those concerns were unfounded since it was about to complete its move to the u.s.

in april they would fail as a cyber law specialist from the university of new south wales he says trying to decision may be rooted in fears about china. because we're just on the cusp of converting all of the telecommunications mobile systems to the next generation the five g. that requires a lot of extra investment and really the the companies involved in qualcomm and broadcom and why way from china are really the only credible investors in this that a massively expensive operation to reach the lead in the next generation of mobile communications and the concern is that broadcom as an investor tends to sort of back off the investment and there's a concern that if they do their play they take over qualcomm which is provides the chips in most of the phones most of the tablets that that most of us use around the world when it may be that the chinese firm way which has been the subject of

continuing allegations from the us about national security questions they may leap ahead of the u.s. national security adviser says he is optimistic about the planned meeting between president trump and north korean leader kim jong un the agreement to meet came after talks between kim and a senior south korean envoy last week h.r. mcmaster briefed the u.n. security council promising to keep up the pressure on p.r. nyang until there's real progress towards denuclearization of the korean peninsula . our southern town is here is the final resting place for some of the more than three thousand people who drowned in the mediterranean sea last year migrants and refugees died on people smuggling boats as they tried to start a new life in europe mohammed jim jhoom reports from czars this where one man is giving some dignity in death that they were never afforded in life
12:24 pm
in a graveyard for the unknown one volunteer works to one of the migrants and refugees he says the world has forgotten. and then as. i feel like these people didn't have a family so i want to be a family for them because they were persecuted in their countries. tells us it was their suffering that compelled so many desperate people to try and cross into europe from libya but the mediterranean didn't deliver them to safety when their bodies washed ashore here in zahra's east tunisia tried to give them the peace he says they deserved all along. when we found a woman with a child i thought to myself maybe he has her son the medical report said he was five years old i wanted to provide them with dignity in death in a symbolic way because a mother is always with her children in life and i bury them head to head a few small toys sit atop the grave of the boy shamsuddin placed them there for

12:26 pm
i saw the body of a lady who was attached to her son with a rope and another who had attached her son to a piece of wood and the waves were playing with them men women children as young as nine and ten that scene is burned in my mind back in the cemetery shum said dean keeps the site as clean as he can he and other volunteers are raising money to buy another plot of land that can be turned into a proper resting place but the economic problems in tunisia have made that very difficult in a place that continues to receive the dead they don't even have the money and equipment to collect d.n.a. which means that in a graveyard where the name of only one deceased migrant is known most of the graves will for the time being at least remain anonymous. as these tunisia the u.n. this world food program is warning some malia is facing a humanitarian catastrophe along its border with venezuela. the head david beasley
