9:06 pm
shows that in modern russia you have these twin approaches you have something that the government would like people to do and you have something different which the people themselves or at least a section of the population would like to do. they too has joined in the mass expulsion of russian diplomats in support of the u.k.'s action following the soulsby nerve agent attack so gen yes stoltenberg says they're reducing the size of russia's nato mission from thirty eight to twenty australia arland moldova and belgium have also joined the list of more than twenty five nations expelling russian officials totenberg says nato has measures are the result of a series of russian actions of course what triggered this was the sole spring attack but it is part of a broader response by nato allies to the pantheon of unacceptable unacceptable and dangerous behavior by russia. we have seen the illegal annexation
9:07 pm
of crimea we have seen these the position of eastern ukraine we have seen cyber attacks we have seen the hybrid tactics we have seen in russia investing heavily in modern military equipment and the willingness to use military force against neighbors facebook c.e.o. mark zuckerberg is to testify before congress over his social networks role in harvesting millions of users data without their knowledge facebook and the data consultancy firm cambridge analytical at the center of a rout over the way personal information was used to influence the outcome of the twenty sixteen u.s. presidential election zuckerberg had earlier turned down a similar request from british m.p.'s who were investigating fake news about the whistleblower at the heart of the scandal has been giving evidence to british m.p.'s christopher wiley said data gathered unlawfully was used to manipulate people in the u.k. to vote to leave the european union summit are calling for the brics referendum to
9:08 pm
be declared null and void barnsley reports. christopher what his extraordinary relations are now casting a shadow over democratic elections on both sides of the atlantic here he was speaking to a u.k. government committee explaining how he knew that public opinion had been unlawfully manipulated before the referendum which is leading to the u.k. leaving the european union to irrevocably alter the constitutional settlement of this country on fraud is a new nation of the constitutional settlement of this country and you cannot call yourself a lever you cannot call yourself somebody who believes in british law and and win by breaking british law in order to achieve that. while essential claims of the campaign group to leave the european union hired an offshoot of cambridge analytic the data mining company accused of harvesting personal details of millions of
9:09 pm
people through facebook and manipulating opinions in an attempt to put donald trump in the white house the company he said had subverted elections for its own aims in countries including nigeria and trinidad now it was doing the same in the u.k. the company will send billions of people being murdered to intimidate voters this is the company that goes out and tries to illicitly acquire you know live internet browsing data of everyone in an entire country so i think a lot of questions should be asked about the role of patriotic here in this election and whether they were indeed actually complying with the law here to answer they said had already been claimed to leave campaign broke u.k. election law by using campaign funds on lawfully allegations the leave camp denies but in an emergency debate in parliament m.p.'s hostile to bricks it's have begun to demand the referendum results be declared null and void inherently untrustworthy
9:10 pm
if the allegations are true that a potentially six hundred two. and she five thousand pounds was spent illegally in a very focused targeted campaign which by definition would been focused on targeted on a very small number of people then i think it's very hard to predict in the fact that that would have passed the law is the norm and nobody is opposed at least one prominent m.p. who backs the leave campaign said he agreed with the need for a criminal inquiry so he ended up in a situation where you get newspaper headlines like this questioning not just the ethical value but the sheer legality of the vote to leave the european union of course supporters of brecht's states would say the entire thing is a made up plot to discredit a democratic decision but in this hall of mirrors it's becoming increasingly difficult to know what's real and was fake. lawrence lee of zero westminster in
9:11 pm
london. during this year is just evens he is a british m.p. and member of the digital media culture and sport committee that heard evidence from christopher wiley today thanks very much for coming to join us we shocked by the allegations you made in parliament well we've had a flavor of what they were going to be in the press over the last couple of days but we heard a lot more from christopher wiley today and pretty shocking stuff about interference in elections as your package showed in nigeria there were questions about the czech republic but most importantly for us obviously whether or not this played any part in the results of the referendum so he and he suggested it does undermine the legality of the brics it vote how far reaching effect will be well if those allegations are proven than there has been breach of electoral law in the u.k. and because of the way in which they targeted voters and they the evidence today was that they used that data that had come from facebook which shouldn't have come from facebook to target those voters it could quite reasonably have affected the
9:12 pm
outcome of the vote because obviously the vote was quite narrow the majority in the end there isn't much of a left out from the government to try to revisit the whole brics issue so do you think that it will end up being parked or do you think it could have legs to well part of the problem is that our current law is not very good and it doesn't deal with digital scenarios and our information commissioner who's the regulates re body for elections with the electoral commission and for data can only find twenty thousand pounds reflectively if this is true they've bought the results of the referendum for twenty thousand pounds so i mean the broader issue of the data that's out there that's being misused allegedly what about the fact that mark zuckerberg has is not wanted to appear in front of the british m.p.'s he is a partner to testify in congress what's your view on him not appearing at all we've been pretty disappointed we've given him a lot of opportunities we've written several times asking him to come and give evidence each time he sent somebody from his organization and we have not in our future. for evidence we think that we've been misled by facebook and so we would
9:13 pm
like mark zuckerberg to come to parliament to answer questions and if he can't make the journey over the atlantic you know we can do it by video link we want to talk to him and you mentioned the issue of protection for the these users of social media for all of us because we will this kind of hard to escape it what kind of practical measures you think need to be put in place now to try to protect people's data well what we know is that the measures that facebook had in place were not being enforced but the evidence we've been given so there were no audit's of where this data went they went in forcing their rules mark zuckerberg says they're going to start enforcing their rules but you know we can't really let the market their own homework i don't think we can trust them now to do the job properly now we need to come up with something better we will make a report and recommendations to our parliament and the government will respond to that report but some regulation is needed and do you think that there's enough of
9:14 pm
a gene has been taken seriously enough i think it is now and i think mark zuckerberg will start to take it seriously he see ninety billion dollars wiped off the value of facebook since these allegations were made. and you know the fact that today he has said he will go and testify before congress i think is the start of him realizing how serious this is thursday this thank you very much indeed for coming to talk to you. russia's defense ministry says thirteen thousand fighters and their families have left syria's eastern ghouta over the past three days heading to the other remaining rebel held area evacuations a part of a deal struck between rebels and the syrian government ally russia saying harder has more from beirut. ahmed says he never carried arms against the syrian government but some of his family members belong to the five man rebel faction that's one of the reasons why he left his home in eastern huta as part of the surrender deal reached with the pro-government alliance the other reason is his
9:15 pm
opposition to reconciling with a government that has killed so many people. every family in lost a family member i lost a lot of friends i lost a colleague who was among the twenty six who died in the famous airstrike i lost two children that i was teaching at school we decided to move away from this brutal regime. ahmed now lives in a mosque he is among some eight hundred thousand people who have been displaced from what was once the rebel controlled enclave in the suburbs of damascus many of those deported to adlib opposition controlled province in the northwest are fighters. is one of them the rebels controlled eastern huta since late two thousand and twelve but months later it was besieged by government forces. and it's sad that we lost this battle after seven years of remaining steadfast after so many sacrifices we had to surrender because of the civilians they killed many children
9:16 pm
the hospitals were out of service anyone injured would die slowly. camps are being set up for syria's newly displaced the refugee camps are overstretched this is a province with a population of one million displaced people and local communities are struggling to cope when rebels are defeated they go to those who don't want to live under the rule of president bashar assad also but there is nowhere safe in that province airstrikes continue to hit nonmilitary targets such as schools and health facilities. the rebels arrived with their light weapons it's not clear if they will join the ranks of the armed factions an adlib where there has been rebel fighting. left before the acid regime for seven years but no food no water no medicine until the regime the russians launched a barbaric campaign we promised the regime that we will return we will liberate the area there are those who refused to admit defeat but the loss of easter is the
9:17 pm
worst setback for the opposition says it was forced to surrender the eastern part of aleppo city in two thousand and sixteen after a similar military campaign set of. beirut coming up on the news hour zimbabwe's schoolteachers threaten to storm the president's office over their work craven says. donald trump's son in law or is accused of using illegal tactics to force out low income tenants from his apartments. and iraq and syria meet in the last match of the twenty eighteen international friendship championship and i will have more details and. that was a visit trotted in mystery and still the focus of much speculation who exactly was on the train to travel between north korea and the chinese capital beijing if it was kim jong un as many believe it would be the north korean leader's first foreign
9:18 pm
trip since taking power in twenty eleven brown has more from beijing. a train like the one used by kim jong un's father eases out of beijing railway station heading towards north korea no clue as to who might be on board. earlier a motorcade brings the center of beijing to a standstill. was. excited office workers captured the moment convinced that it's him kim jong un. but china's foreign ministry spokeswoman was not so sure unable to explain who the mystery visitor might be well. i'm not aware of any information at present three further questions about whether kim was in beijing with a battered away there would be no big announcement here is it possible that you wouldn't know that but in general news here. everything's off the mark for me i. just really think childress you it's you you know i tell you this it seems to me
9:19 pm
you have more information than i think that you and in the house is possible housing possible was i think we think we were there for you know i suggest you go home and have dinner and carry on with your life she said throughout the day other parts of beijing were also no go areas for journalists including the road close to the state guesthouse where the visiting delegation was stuart to be staying if kim jong un really has been in beijing it would mark his first visit outside of north korea since becoming the country's leader more than six years ago during that time his relations with chinese leaders have gone from good to testy as he defies appeals to hold his missile and nuclear programs but now it's possible the normal service has resumed and north korean and chinese leaders are talking again adrian brown al-jazeera beijing. joining us from washington d.c.
9:20 pm
is eric game is a policy analyst at the cato institute think tank thanks very much for being with us so what's your theory about who was on that train. well you can't really do much more than speculate but given the fact that the train was used was a similar train that was used the last time a north korean head of state visited china the size of the motorcade and even the intense secrecy surrounding the meeting my hunch is that it is kim jong un certainly someone very very important for the north korean leadership so if not him then perhaps a sister or several other people high up in the regime and within the context of an upcoming summit with the u.s. president what would the north korean leader stand to gain from this visit. well one interesting thing about this sort of push for negotiations that we've seen since the olympic games is that china has been really sidelined in all this that
9:21 pm
china hasn't really been a member of talks so far in this latest push and i think that it's important for beijing to feel like a part of what's going on and to have a say to have their interests met is unclear whether or not kim is making this trip sort of at the request of xi jinping or if he's going of his own accord or if he wanted all. a lot of still unknown so we have to wait and see on that but i think it's definitely related to the upcoming summit with the united states and the general sort of frenzy of diplomatic activity that we've seen since the winter olympics so your theory is that china might be quite worried about being sidelined with those possible talks in the u.s. we're minds about the kind of state of the relationship has been recently with north korea and china. well it has been very good or it hasn't been very good china has signed on to a lot of sanctions that the u.s.
9:22 pm
has been championing over the especially over the last year there's been a number of high profile north korean missile tests during important events that were happening in china including a g twenty summit last year two years ago in two thousand and sixteen and a bell and road forum last year so the relationship has deteriorated i don't think that china is in a position where it would put the kind of pressure on north korea that would cause a north korean collapse but i think the chinese are moving closer to or were moving closer towards the u.s. position over time. so this might be an attempt for kim or his regime to reach out to china before the negotiations happen and fill them in on what they're thinking or try and mend some bridges or men some fences before the talks with the u.s. begin has surprising is it that i mean is it is it would you think it actually is a strategy of moving more towards diplomacy from the north korean side.
9:23 pm
well i think that the diplomacy has certainly been a major focus of the regime recently. i think the question of why are they doing this at this point is an important answer and unfortunately it's something that is hard to answer from the outside looking in one school of thought says that sanctions are working and trying to ministrations pressure campaign has been successful and the north is finally ready to cry uncle and give up its nuclear weapons the other perspective is that kim is pretty happy with the state of his nuclear forces and that leaves an opening to have some negotiations and see if he can use the state of his program to trade for something that he wants. without more information about what's happening in or inside north korea it's difficult to assess which of those schools is right but i think that the fact that we're seeing more movement towards diplomacy now i think it's certainly
9:24 pm
a positive development from where we were a year ago and from the escalating tensions that we saw throughout twenty seventeen but it doesn't mean we're out of the woods yet and a lot could still happen or still go wrong. in the course of these talks so i'm hopeful that peaceful solution can be negotiated or some sort of settlement can be reached but i'm not very confident that it will be reached thank you very much indeed. the property company owned by donald trump's son in law is under investigation for allegedly falsifying documents with the new york buildings department and the tenants rights group says krisna companies used illegal tactics to try to force out low income tenants in rent controlled apartments christian salumi has more from new york. in the home area and see why it has lived in her tiny one bedroom apartment for more than thirty five years she says living conditions became unbearable in two thousand and thirteen after the building was
9:25 pm
sought and the new landlord began to renovate this is where the ceiling caved in but even when she was offered ten thousand dollars to leave she refused to give up her rent stabilized lease which limits how much landlords can charge her for rent i really didn't have a lot of money to fund other parmeno look for someplace else you know this is my home so where was i going to go she didn't know her landlord was jerad cushion or until she hired a lawyer to sue and won a year's worth of free rent a new appliances christian has since stepped down as c.e.o. of the family business to work in his father in law's administration but now the manhattan based cushion or companies is accused of lying about the presence of rent regulated tenants on more than eighty work permits at thirty four buildings over a four year period tenants advocates say doing so allowed them to avoid greater oversight including surprise inspections of construction projects it appears that
9:26 pm
cushion or companies use deliberately used invasive and destructive construction practices to harass tenants out of their apartments and to hide what it was doing from the government it had falsified not one not two not three permit applications but eighty permit applications lying on permit applications is a crime punishable by a fine or imprisonment questionnaire companies bought this building in queens in two thousand and fifteen renovated it and sold it to. two years later for sixty million dollars in profit of nearly fifty percent during that time the number of rent stabilized tenants dropped from ninety four to twenty five christian or companies didn't respond to our request for an interview but told the associated press who first reported the story that the mistakes were unintentional clerical errors or companies city council member richard torres who launched an investigation said the actual number of rent controlled units could be found in
9:27 pm
other city documents falsifying building permits is not simply about bureaucratic paper shuffling it is a profound threat to the affordability of regulating your net worth of the greatest source of affordable housing we have sewage says she's just one of a handful of tenants who didn't leave during the renovations and the new ones are paying three times what she does and rent kristen salumi al-jazeera new york as you go in is following the story for us in washington d.c. party what's the political impact going to be. well you know what we've got going on now is a story first reported by the new york times that dared cushion or met with c.e.o.'s from financial companies in his role in the white house now he said it was to talk about infrastructure a potential job for one of them but a few weeks after that both of these companies gave loans to his company in the tune of about five hundred million dollars now i've spoken to the his lawyer a.b. law abbe lowell and they spit out
9:28 pm
a statement saying that the white house counsel did look into this and found that there jared was did nothing wrong there was no issue here so what happens next well the office of government ethics could launch a probe but it's a really powerless institution and has the ability to forward any of its findings to the justice department they seem unlikely to do anything but this is just the latest in another set of pretty much scandals surrounding jared cushion or we've had believe robert mueller the special counsel or looking into whether or not his business ties are impacting foreign policy this is that after his father met with the qatari official to try and get financing for a building they have in new york that is seriously under water a few weeks after that that surprised everyone a washington insider with the blockading countries they were blockading cutter so that is an area that special prosecutor robert muller is looking at and there's also all of christian hours of roles during the campaign during the transition he is alleged to have met with the russian ambassador and asked them if they could set
9:29 pm
up a back channel for communications within the embassy the russian embassy in the united states that conversation then would be kept secret allegedly from the rest of the government at the time he said it was to talk about syria so there are a lot of questions surrounding jared kushner not just his business is his time during the transition but even his time in the white house. thank you very much indeed. much more to come on the program including. as egypt's opposition boycotts the elections re-examine the country's long history of suppressing the popular muslim brotherhood movement. have policymakers are trying to have that malaysia's looming water crisis. and running on dreams will tell you how a village in ethiopia is producing some of the world's best long distance runners coming up in sport.

9:32 pm
a different perspective to global it's when you peel away the lists of covert military in the financial darkening you see the people in those words and those policies are affecting see the emotion on their faces the situation they're living in that's when our viewers can identify with the story. on one of the top stories here on al-jazeera five people have been charged over a fire in a russian shopping center that killed sixty four people most of them children

9:39 pm
the youth movements members have been persecuted with many of them arrested. for another prominent young pro-democracy activist from that time has been in prison for almost five years mohamed el baradei of the dust to a party once headed the un's nuclear watchdog he became egypt's interim vice president in twenty thirty but lasted only a month in the job standing down after police crackdown on protests many of egypt's opposition in our lives abroad then there's the longtime opposition group the muslim brotherhood it came late to the revolution and want to see new members mohamed morsi went on to become egypt's first democratically elected president in twenty twelve but within a year he'd been removed from power then imprisoned and now the muslim brotherhood has been outlawed as a terrorist organization most of its leadership are in prison or abroad. a second day of voting is underway in egypt's presidential election incumbent as we
9:40 pm
said but as he says almost certain to win some opposition candidates are boycotting the election in protest at voter intimidation and lack of choice and another group not represented in the vote the muslim brotherhood as we've mentioned suppressed for decades despite producing the country's first democratically elected leader sullivan has more. to. do with a small window of democracy in egypt a long history of strongmen backed by the military that was in two thousand and twelve the mohamed morsi was sworn in. but the triumph of egypt's first democratically elected president and the party he represents the muslim brotherhood lost in just twelve months. the largest representative of political sunni islam in egypt is now labeled by the state as a terrorist organization which the brotherhood denies there's no room for any kind of political practice nobody is allowed to express his opinion nobody is allowed to feel the himself as a candidate in as

9:42 pm
