9:15 pm
a restaurant in agencies shake off money area one day his friends called us and told us that iraqi forces brutally attacked him and arrested him we've been looking for him for a year and a half we urge the international community to help us look for them. the advocacy group called the mothers of a big d's association says more than fifteen thousand yemenis have either been arrested or disappeared in there has been an uptick in the matter not of arbitrary detentions but also in force disappearances across the country by all sides of the conflict in the south. security belt of forces which are but by the u.a.e. there have been very credible investigations into a vast number of secret detention centers where hundreds of men and boys are being arbitrarily detained and for months at a time without having any contact with the outside world the three year war in yemen has caused
9:16 pm
a complete breakdown of law and order especially in the south where militias operate beyond the control of the courts and the internationally recognized government in addition to disappearances and torture militia backed by the us are accused of executions and assassinations as well break groups a journalist clerics and high profile politicians have all been targeted and civilians are increasingly at the mercy of powerful on groups. some of a job with their. has been strong international reaction to u.s. president donald trump's appointment of john bolton as his new national security adviser bolton is opposed to peace talks between israel and palestine and the ironically dale calling for bombing rather than diplomacy that's a sure the name that's back at his post. john bolton has worked for three republican presidents and caused controversy even among members of his own party now he joins a trumpet ministration apparently in turmoil analysts say bolton is
9:17 pm
a hard liner and donald trump is sending a very clear message by choosing him instead of a more moderate voice mr bolton didn't see a war that he didn't like you know when he was at the united nations as an acting ambassador there because he couldn't get confirmed by the senate he said you know diplomacy is useless it could might as well float out into the sea and sink i think what we can see is an escalation of tensions bolton has a history of imposing american military might he advocated the invasion of iraq in two thousand and three while ambassador to the u.n. he took a hard line against north korea and iran by pushing saying sions. the united states has followed a policy for over four years sensually of deferring to european efforts to negotiate with iran i think it's clear that that policy has failed the season politicians returned to the front line of foreign policy gives him an opportunity
9:18 pm
to shape the president's views on north korea and iran at a critical moment trump has spoken of wanting to rip up the iranian nuclear accord and he's due for a much anticipated meeting with north korean leader kim jong un in may the talks with north korea go poorly trump walk out and say you know that didn't really get us anything and done john bolton to say look i told you we should strike north korea john bones but on the record he said twice in the last six months the u.s. should attack north korea even within trump's inner circle there's disagreement about whether bolton is the right man for the national security job is ideology is thought to be aligned with his boss he's already tried to ease fears that he pushed the united states into another conflict saying he will be one voice among many who are advising the president and there should be a free exchange of ideas as an ever growing number of trumps right hand men and women have learned bolton's biggest challenge may be keeping the continued faith of
9:19 pm
president trump and his job natasha going to eight zero that's been to michael fuchs in washington d.c. a senior fellow at the center for american progress and was a special adviser to hillary clinton when she was secretary of state thanks very much for coming in to speak to us so what the president trying to recent appointments light and of course john bolton or avail about the potential future of u.s. foreign policy. well look i think these recent personnel moves by president trump are a very disturbing signal that the president is preparing a war cabinet to advise him going forward he is clearing out the more moderate voices within his administration such as secretary of state rex tillerson and he is replacing them with much more radical hawkish views of now national security adviser john bolton and soon to be potentially the new secretary of state mike
9:20 pm
pompei oh and while we are of course led by a president that is noticeably unpredictable it is very clear that he is providing himself with much more radical and extreme opinions when it comes to the use of military force whether it's with iran or north korea or south elsewhere but he donald trump is unpredictable but on the other hand he has been consistent in aspects of his policies policies such as america he has made domestic issues very much a priority for his presidency. he has made it clear that he thinks the iraq war was a mistake he is not going to be keenly can't be certain that he's going to be keen on military action because of these appointments alone kelly. well look again as you said donald trump is unpredictable and so it's very difficult to know
9:21 pm
exactly what he'll do but it's also very difficult to know exactly what donald trump thinks yes he campaigned and has said ever since then that he was supposedly against the iraq war but that's actually not the case if you look back to his comments in public during the iraq war and in the run up to it he actually was in favor of invading iraq since being president the president has actually overseen a very slow and yet steady increase in the use of military force abroad whether it's in the afghanistan or it's in the middle east and so yes while the president has campaign it likes to talk about how he wants to keep america out of wars he says he seems to see through foreign policy very much through the prism of using the military you could see it just for his comments during the signing ceremony of the spending package just today here in washington when he was touting how much more money he's gotten so how do you see this relationship playing out because. we
9:22 pm
know john bolton bolton's views on several key issues he has spoken about the possibility of a preemptive strike on countries like north korea we see president trump going in very much the reverse decision in recent months. well look i think that's absolutely right and this is clearly going to be a potentially contentious relationship inside the white house like many relationships frankly of president trump and his advisers but there's one thing to know about john bolton based on the record which is that he is a very capable and wily bureaucratic infighter he knows how to work the u.s. government system he's been there many times before and he also knows how to play his boss he's been auditioning for this job for the past year on fox news on almost a daily basis and so again i think that what we're likely to see is a national security adviser who in a normal administration is supposed to play the role of an honest broker compiling policy options for the president to choose from but what we're going to see here
9:23 pm
from john bolton is most likely someone who is going to very strongly impose his own views on the options that reach the president's desk and that is a very very worrisome prospect here michael fuchs in washington thank you. well now and other developments donald trump has signed a one point three trillion dollars spending bill avoiding another government shutdown this is a turnaround from his position just hours earlier and he threatened to veto the bill because of the lack of funding has proposed border wall that mexico congress has passed the measure would have been the third shutdown of the u.s. government this year. european union has recalled its ambassador in moscow over the poisoning of a former russian spy deepens. backing britain's view that last guy is likely to blame for the nerve agent. and his dossier junia earlier this month but russia denies the allegations or challenge reports from moscow. first applauded by their colleagues staying behind then driven out of the pritish embassy in moscow perhaps
9:24 pm
never to return for minivans to the british diplomatic star from their families to catch their flights home they were requires to leave by midnight small scary time for tyrants response to the british government's expulsion of russian diplomats the u.k. says we're working a secret spies. the departure of the british and diplomats from the embassy here in moscow drops the temperature even further in this new and particularly frosty phase in the u.k. russia relationship but long term is proving successful in persuading traditional allies to back it up perhaps where some in moscow might have doubted its ability to do so the poisoning of gay and yulia script all in the southern english city of souls brief featured high on the agenda at the e.u. spring summit in brussels british prime minister to resign may has been lobbying european leaders to blame russia for the strike that russia poses respects mobile
9:25 pm
which is the nicest is the stripes will find use of she's right that here in the new council we are standing together while pollsters fondues it appears the intelligence on the attack she says she's shared with european colleagues has convinced them that the british assessment is correct you know on this and understood we had a long discussion but reached a broad consensus that all evidence points to russia big link to this attack and there's really no other explanation all member states agreed with this point of view and we will monitor the situation to see what happens next the british have shared their information with the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons and we will await their that. the e.u. has recalled its ambassador to moscow for consultations in brussels over the script . russia's foreign ministry which is trying to convince the world's the russia is the injured party here is protesting had the way things are going. the way you have
9:26 pm
to think we'd be great to that instead of referring to international law or the european union has preferred to go on the path of another on t.v. russian campaign instigated by london transoceanic allies with an obvious goal to put another hurdle in the way of normalization of the situation on the european continent. it's not yet clear water happens next but various leaders of e.u. countries have confirms they're considering expelling russian diplomats to these are scenes we may see repeated in the days to come reach islands now to zero bhaskar. now five catalan politicians have been charged with rebellion and sent to jail by a spanish supreme court if issues include the former catalan parliamentary speaker calm a folk adele and ex catalan minister georgie terrell are expected to enter the fray of prisons on friday spain's top prosecutor called for the sentence because he said there was a high risk of them repeating that crimes. to local politicians in the former

soviet republic of georgia have found a novel way to liven up their city assembly a heated debate managed to get totally out of hand when punches started flying between two opposition members one of whom went on the offensive using a telephone as an improvised weapon. the two men had managed to get themselves worked up about the creation of a new political faction in the city of d.d. after they were separated by their fellow politicians medics had to be called in to treat them both for their injuries. much more to come for this hour israeli settler attacks against palestinians in the occupied occupied west bank are rising we speak to people whose jobs are becoming dated gamble. braincell a web private ownership of water is taking its toll on the country's poorest communities. and in sports the same poll continues his unlikely class to make it as a professional footballer.
9:28 pm
some rather lively weather moving across northern parts of the middle east atlanta bigger as a class spilling out to the rolling out of the black sea the sea it does look rather overcast for the time being not too much rain on that at least away from turkey day there's like a very wet day if i windy as well some brisk winds coming through that stiff wind there will be a feature across iraq maybe into western parts of iraq will see temperatures in the southerly winds getting to thirty three cells just there in baghdad so quite a picture of the race couple at around twenty one celsius picking up to twenty four as we go on through sunday cloud to flee rain that will make us where little further east was by this day so things will quieten down high by rate getting up to around twenty one celsius to twenty eight in baghdad with the possibility of a little bit of patchy right just maybe for northern parts of iraq we can have
9:29 pm
twenty nine here and stay pleasantly warm light winds not too bad the winds will pick up a little as we go on into sunday could touch thirty two degrees out where i was you can see more very warm sunshine coming in right across the region the sunshine continues across the a western side of south africa the eastern side we'll see some showers once again and further north live down pulls in mozambique. when the winning the will of the people hinges on the mass media state p.r. machine it's going to overdrive. but just. can fill in saying. we just don't know yet where the lines will be drawn between what can be said and what conduct that. some journalists decided to sacrifice their integrity for access in the media opinion that listening post based time on al-jazeera.
9:30 pm
on counting the cost facebook and the big data economy the business model at the heart of the world's largest social network coming under scrutiny bus america's guns inside the biggest unregulated weapons market in the developed world counting the cost. now a reminder of the top stories on al-jazeera three people have been killed in southwestern
9:31 pm
france when a gunman hijacked a car and took hostages in a supermarket the twenty six year old suspect has been shot dead by police. in afghanistan at least sixteen people have been killed after an explosion in lashkar in helmand province forty others have been injured the bomb went off as people were leaving a wrestling match. and a syrian rebel group has agreed to a surrender deal in the rebel held on tight of this follows a separate evacuation deal agreed earlier on in the week from the key town of. let's get more now on the attack in france with david chato who is live for us in trouble and david if you could just tell us what's happening there around you and situation is like now. yes when i when i first got here maryam there was a real sense of shock in this small community of people who are actually sort of
9:32 pm
talking to each other holding each other it was a real trauma for them because the supermarket which you can see behind me is on the outskirts of the village but there are three schools nearby and you can imagine the situation of police trying to clear the area of people trying to find where they get to the children in the school whether their friends are in the supermarket they could hear the gunfire it was an extraordinary situation there were three incidents first of all we had the carjacking in which the driver was injured and his passenger was killed and then they gunman started shooting at police who were jogging nearby then he drove hit here as far as we know a complete chance that he drove to this small community and the police at the moment behind me are still going through the the supermarket looking for shell casings looking for any evidence any forensics that might lead them to the the trail of the ammunition the trail of the gun where did this man get these weapons
9:33 pm
and we still don't know quite the full details of what he was actually holding as well we heard there were. pistols as well that he had and at the moment it seems that the untold story is the extraordinary story of the colonel from the gendarmes who. managed to get into the supermarket keeping his mobile phone on a high volume and swapped himself for one of the hostages and when the police who were listening in suddenly heard gunshots that's when the special crack squad went in and shot the gunman and that policeman a colonel in the john dams is fighting he's in serious seriously injured fighting for his life in a hospital at the moment so an extraordinary series of tales as you can imagine the security forces were finding it very difficult to cope because there were. three incidents where they more than one gunman they didn't know what was happening they didn't know was as a coordinated attack you could imagine they got as many police on the ground as
9:34 pm
they possibly could and in the supermarket itself dozens were injured when the gunman opened fire fighters solve the people there a lot of them managed to get out some managed to hide in one of the freezer rooms and then get get their way out but you can imagine the sense of shock here is absolutely appalling at the moment and we're waiting of course for the authorities from paris who are going to give a press conference in caracas song which is nearby about eight kilometers down the road to find out the full details of this but what the police are trying to find out is what motivated this man he was known to them only as a small time drug dealer they didn't realise he'd been radicalized was he as he said when he burst into the supermarket behind him. a soldier of diana should which of course is just another word for i saw or islamic state the so-called islamic state so at the moment was waiting for all the answers from the authorities they
9:35 pm
should give us much more details maria yes as a say we're waiting to hear from the special prosecutor very shortly and we've already had some details emerging about the gunman he was very much while he was on the radar security service is that what will the investigation now focus on david. they'll try to trace it back where was he radicalized how was it radicalized was he indeed radicalize what happened it's very very difficult if a man is radicalized by just being on the internet by watching these propaganda videos if if that was the way he was radicalized then it's very difficult for the police to be had to step in and know what's being planned but they'll be looking back looking at his contacts looking at its computers in these phone calls searching his apartment he's apparently from caucus on and that's the way they're going to trace back how this attack was planned did he really have any contact with
9:36 pm
the islamic state was indeed one of their soldiers as he said when he burst into the supermarket that's what they'll be trying to do to try to down at the moment but most attention will of course be on those who were injured and on the families of those people who were killed at the moment we're waiting for the full details was indeed a trained radical a member of the islamic state or was this just a one off attempt by him to get his name in the media in the press nobody knows at the moment it does seem extraordinary but the police did know about him just didn't know to what extent he had been radicalized all right thanks very much david. now to peru where lost in his car until now the vice president has been sworn in as president this is after congress accepted the resignation of president kaczynski quit to avoid impeachment corruption allegations now on a censure as joins us now from lima so what more do we know about peru this new
9:37 pm
president is definitely taking the helm at a difficult time for the country. yes maria i think it is a very difficult time and that's perhaps one of the first things that now president not being discussed said in his speech to the nation right after he was sworn in about he talked about the difficulties the political turmoil the political difficulties and so he one of the first things he said it's time to leave those differences behind his curiously he was received he was well come and in congress by a standing ovation every single congressman was standing and was clapping is something very surprising as for one thing it's been a vis same congress and to the absolute majority in congress led by the popular
9:38 pm
force party led by modi who has been attacking this party attacking not only former president but all you know is the ministers including my theme he's got to who was the transport minister and listen one year ago he wasn't peached and removed by this same congress but now apparently this congress is now trying to show that they are ready to work with these new precedents and among the things that must be beef got a said it was that it was time to stop this instability that is no good. i'm to begin working and he said if we that he will be on the forefront to fight corruption and whoever wins it has to pull will pull egg is talking a little bit about is all these political. politicians if you will that have been involved in
9:39 pm
a lot of corruption in the country but i think that possibly the first the most important line he gave was trying to turn the page to stop the political confrontation and fight for a social pact so now my friend be turned into the first. the new president he's term will be a three year term that was left for you to finish he will finish that. he cannot call for general elections apparently he will and the three years if this president allows him to work thank you very much nigh on to bring us all the latest from the. vice president is being sworn in taking over from the chin ski who. has been has submitted his resignation to congress that resignation now excepted following the threat of impeachment over corruption allegations. has been an increase in illegal israeli settler attacks against palestinians in the occupied
9:40 pm
west bank since the start of the year this according to figures from the united nations on the abdulhamid has been speaking to palestinian victims there about the daily struggle to protect themselves. taking the sheep to pastor has become a daily gamble for safra young his village i know bruce is surrounded by several illegal jewish settlements up there on the hills and more and more often settlers come down. in one week he came twice the first time i was alone and there were eighteen of them i told one of them that i had called the police but they didn't go away my main worry was the sheep then six more attacked me and the others headed towards the sheep still some i couldn't do anything alone. zaf it was wounded in the head and says he lost a third of his life stuck this video shot by the organization rabbis for human rights shows the second attack
9:41 pm
a few days later about twenty settlers many must seem throwing stones at palestinians with israeli soldiers standing by the un says the weekly average of settler attacks has increased by fifty percent since the beginning of the year these are not isolated incidents such as attacks happen a bit all over the occupied west bank and there's very little people can do simply because israel is in charge of the security in about eighty percent of the palestinian territory and palestinian security forces are not allowed to operate in those areas the village of the fed is in the so-called area b. which means that palestinians have only civilian control security matters are indeed a hands of the occupying forces but. the army itself attacks palestinians with tear gas and rubber coated bullets even when it's the settlers who are provoking and the palestinians are trying to protect the villages no settler is ever detained
9:42 pm
only palestinians legal proceedings rarely reach a conclusion only eight percent of all complaints filed have led to an indictment less than half to a conviction. it's wide family say they never filed a complaint at a time when they come under attack by the neighbors settlers on a nearly weekly basis they have reinforced all their windows with metal netting and bars and the string to quickly pulled the shutters in case of trouble. it's been a long time since we had them wide open we don't feel like we're in a prison that we will stand our house it's our harmony the israeli army told that to take such incidents very seriously and will operate to bring the suspects to justice but in his latest report israel's state controller criticized israeli police in the west bank for failing to investigate crimes against palestinians
9:43 pm
