manager of our now and if the price moves the longest serving manager in english premier league history announces hell labor the end of the fever. welcome to the news with friday protests along the israeli gaza border two palestinians have been killed by the israeli soldiers during protests that the deaths bring the number to thirty five palestinians killed by the israelis since the protests began last month sixty people have been injured in the latest rally marking the prisoner's day to support palestinians held in israeli jails let's cross over to bernard smith who's been following events throughout the day force from gaza we know two people have been killed so far what's the situation like so far where you are. well the numbers of picked up here in the last hour or
4:03 pm
so so there are many thousands of protesters who are now facing of what has been a barrel of tear gas coming from the israeli side and you can see sort of over my shoulder all of black smoke that was much thicker even earlier on used to try and obscure the view from the israeli soldiers i'm joined by. one of the organizers of these events over the last few weeks thanks for joining us thank you very much indeed thank you first of all of the numbers that are the same numbers of people still coming people are converging on the place and now every now and then they come and that number is increasing of course and people are very enthusiastic to come and participate in this great rush of it's because they know that. without coming without demonstrating with that they're participating in this nonviolent peaceful demonstration they couldn't achieve their objective this is why people are increasing. by the minute and they are coming from far and wide in order to send
4:04 pm
a message to the whole what about the objective of this much of it but so do you do you think you're getting any concessions out of the israelis to improve the life of palestinians in gaza i don't see them giving anyway a taste to an implant in the hearts of the people over there with the thought of seeing as how frightened there are a hoping that wishing for the right of return and we want the whole world to impose a military embargo and those that are and to impose b.d.s. just like the against the israelis and i think at the end of the day if i put a scene in when the image hit when i was and victoria simply because we are using this tactic of nonviolence and they're peaceful in this as south africa has this before and they managed to emerge victorious and to protect their own country and i think we are no exception but at least to improve the very very difficult life of palestinians in gaza you would want the israelis to sort of lift the siege to stop the embargo of gaza do you see any indication you may get some of that of course i think probably for example you said they are. you know took
4:05 pm
a very important decision right to step in the right direction when they decided that to send. and the suggestion committee and then also to ask the people to ease their power to end this siege and then to the people to help the people. in order that. had restored their own rights and to live and dignity and to claim those who should to kill and to impose this is what we were asked him to impose military embargo on it and because of that i should stop it ok sir thank you very much for joining us it is on the whole an essentially peaceful protest yes there are some people throwing stones over the fence but this is essentially by and large a peaceful protest as it has been over the last few weeks and there will be more of these protests on fridays leading up to may fifteenth the day the many palestinians call them not by. us coming over there i think. that the founding of the
4:06 pm
state of israel i'm with that so we'll get out of the way of the tear gas and go back to because there will come back tears that develops for the moment as you can see bennett smith a reporter for south tear gas is flying into the area where those protesters are along the gaza israel border two palestinians killed so far several injured of course we'll keep you updated through the al-jazeera day. the voters news agency says a u.n. vehicle has been seen close to the side of a suspected chemical attack in duma near the syrian capital international inspectors have been trying to gain access to the area for almost a week they're still waiting for approval from or from a u.n. security team to enter. the u.n. calling to see the company by russian military police vehicles not moscow has to noida us like you know accusations that it's trying to delay inspectors entry into duma lopez for dion has the latest. access
4:07 pm
denied inspectors with the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons are on standby waiting to enter the area duma a visit to the site of the alleged chemical attack has been delayed for days the investigation stalled the white house says russia and syria are trying to buy time to tamper with evidence we believe it is an effort to conduct their own staged investigations russian officials have worked with the syrian regime we believe to sanitize the locations of those suspected attacks and remove incriminating evidence of chemical weapons use security concerns delayed the inspection a u.n. risk assessment team says it came under fire as a try to clear away for the inspection days later inspectors are still waiting to go in the u.n. says discussions are taking place in damascus to ensure the o.p.c. w team can go in safely and as quickly as possible i think you could understand the
4:08 pm
ju-ju. the volatility of the situation the dangers involved we don't want to telegraph what will happen but the discussions and planning is ongoing but. more than forty people were reportedly killed in the alleged attack almost two weeks ago syria and the strongest ally russia have denied the use of chemical weapons they also refute hindering the investigation was going to. its absolute rubbish a lie that russia prevents inspectors from entering duma we don't know what made them think that from the beginning we were sincerely interested in sending o.p.c. w. inspectors there we made public statements and that moreover we contacted the. inside so that all documents including visas were provided to the inspectors as soon as possible. the u.s. u.k. and france retaliated by bombing several syrian government sites now it's not just western powers that are keeping a close eye on the pending inspection all the parties have agreed to allow the
4:09 pm
o.p.c. w. teams access unfettered access immediate access to these sites you know we can't get around the fact that the syrian government and their russian allies control the territory we're talking about a race against time as concerns grow that possible evidence of the alleged attack may be tainted or even disappear before inspectors begin their investigation could see a little pissed with a young al jazeera. russia's foreign minister says u.s. led strikes on syria last week did not cross what he called a red glowing so you love rolph says the kremlin told us which areas it would be unacceptable to target he also says donald trump has invited vladimir putin to washington hospital. where you know we had contacts between the military leadership and the level of generals with our representatives in the commanders of the u.s. led coalition they were informed about where our red lines are including geographical red lines on the ground in any case the result showed they have not
4:10 pm
crossed these red lines. from moscow. russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov has given an interview to a man called dmitri kosloff who in the west is regarded as russia's head or chief propagandist he's the boss of you know the kind of overarching state media organization. and what lavrov told kissimmee of these. trump and putin would not allow the two countries to march into war with each other you get the impression i think that after the pyrotechnics last weekend russia is interested diplomatically at least being in a kind of holding pattern not escalating the situation with the united states even further so it says that russia was very clear or lover of says that russia was very clear. with the united states that there were certain red lines that there had in
4:11 pm
syria not to be crossed with its airstrikes and the united states listened and didn't cross them there has to be some. notion of russian pushback kept on the table though but the only threat that we're really getting from the russians is keeping the idea of supplying syria with its sophisticated s. three hundred air defense system keeping that on the table but actually this is a system that is already in operation in syria because the russians actually have it in their arsenal there but we're also going to get something from the diplomatic track later on today when the lever of meets with steffan de mistura and i'll be interested to see what comes out of that meeting because with the military campaign going so well for russia at the moment's mopping up these last enclaves of rebel activity with the model that it used aleppo then in eastern guta bombardment followed by offers of humanitarian truce so that the rebels and their families can
4:12 pm
clear out without going so well is it in russia's interest now to move back to the diplomatic track in geneva and get some sort of advantageously peace deal on the table we'll have to wait and see what comes out of that meeting and whether russia has yet ready to do that. the inside syria rebels have abandoned a pocket of land northeast of damascus under an evacuation deal it's believed all members of the group known as the army of islam have now left the area of doing there and in the moon rebels have agreed to lay down their arms is expected they'll begin leaving within days or has more from neighboring lebanon. the syrian government and its allies regaining control of more territory from the opposition the town of de mayo is now back under state control after the rebels lay down their arms and agreed to be evacuated to the north of the country to other rebel controlled territories in the north of the country the remaining rebel factions in the eastern caliban enclave have also agreed to surrender without
4:13 pm
a fight there was the threat of military action and this is what the government has been doing it was using the strength of military action to bring about a surrender in this eastern kalamunda enclave being really strategic for the government because it lies along the main highway between task this and baghdad the government is using this tactic as well with the with the rebels in the countryside of homes in the northern countryside of homs telling them you can face what the rebels of eastern water faced if you don't agree to lay down your arms there is a ceasefire in place and negotiations are set to continue on sunday but i still but talks with i still have collapsed eisel of course controlling a pocket of territory in southern and southern to masochists i still refusing to evacuate and leave to the east of the country to the desert and so the army and its allies have begun a battle to recapture that territory so the syrian government pushing ahead with
4:14 pm
the with its military option really the way it wants to solve this crisis by crushing the rebellion in recapturing territory from the rebels instead of engaging in any political process well plenty more ahead here on news hour including european politicians are urging their colleagues in the u.s. to convince president trump not to scrap the iran nuclear deal. on malcolm webb to reprovision in the democratic republic of congo tens of thousands of people here fled their homes since the beginning of the year the militia attacked their villages to things like this. and then support disgraced cycling champion lance armstrong reaches a multi-million dollar settlement with the u.s. government. police in south africa's northwest province of fired rubber bullets at

4:20 pm
fallen behind in paying rent for many of its diplomatic missions the country is short on foreign currency and is facing an economic crisis that's forced the central bank to devalue the sudanese pound twice since january european politicians have written to their u.s. colleagues urging them to convince president donald trump not to abandon the iran nuclear deal to iran has warned of what it called unpleasant consequences if the us pulls out of the multinational agreement in twenty fifteen iran agreed to curb its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of sanctions but president trump says the deal needs to be amend it. now in october the u.s. president said that iran is not complying with the accord that's despite u.n. inspectors certifying nine times that iran is sticking to the deal in january however trump signed a waiver suspending u.s. sanctions on iran for another one hundred twenty days but he warned it would be the
4:21 pm
last time what trump ultimately wants is for e.u. participants in the deal to agree to permanent restrictions on iran's nuclear program and under the current deal they're due to expire in twenty twenty five years a sheen this high is a senior lecturer in middle east politics at the university of bradford he joins me now from florence italy via skype good to have you with us on the program we've discussed this subject very quite a few times before but one still wonders where the president trump is saber rattling he's deadly serious or he just wants to try and find a better deal. i mean you really know we're going to. court to beat mr sharp what we do the better part of why don't you share there. are all all at the future all. so who are you. and bit you on of national security it's going.
4:22 pm
to be that if he's made a number of compromising individuals who believe it's a respect for peace agreement mr that also what he planned to get out of the deal even before you started working for. shot and you should not forget that while the media disagreements. with mr tillotson the previous their parties think it's very instructive although. so when we do look at the rhetoric as well as the recess appointment. we can actually be surprised to see people being signed and mr shaw finally get. the ok if that's the case then that while the europeans the you are certainly arguing the case for iraq to
4:23 pm
stick with the deal does iran really care because sanctions in real terms haven't been lifted from the u.s. side of the agreement. yes there you don't here's a lot of you have to recognize that action will only show. policies if you do talk about it even hardliners yes actually there are welcome in this situation we welcome more pressure from the united states and certainly it will help in the video but if you are talking to if you are talking about big government there is always this government the government of mr all i need to have a lot at stake and be doing everything it is full to make sure that it can actually preserve these historic green iranian economy is under a great deal of pressure over the last three or four months the country has minimum a lot of. problems and russia basically a new regime that sanctions probably is going to add more pressure on this
4:24 pm
government which is again really is the feeling with the trouble of how the deal still work without the u.s. for example if the u.s. were to come back to it at a later date if president trump changes his mind or if in fact if there was even a different president in the seat. this is what the european are all need to act on it all in part because we need to give them some incentive to say ok tate is now. one of the ones that is a new regime was there is a new government washington going back to be guessing well i very much doubt that it is only one of an attractive offer for you in the bikini in two or three give primarily because the united states the largest economy what are important and now the united states actually unilaterally decides to eat every
4:25 pm
man there is not going to be that attractive bottle for there is going to be if you're in it and the europeans in very difficult position to come up with an alternative plan in all it will seem. that iran well we'll see what does happen certainly in the coming days for the moment after shy thanks so much for joining us from florence now the prospect of a global trade war has the international monetary fund concerned it on the world by income meeting in washington in the u.s. as the u.s. and china in fact impose a growing list of terrorists against each other she have returns he has been. bankers and finance ministers from the i.m.f. one hundred eighty nine member countries are meeting in washington on the tenth anniversary of the global financial crisis the phone's world economic outlook is optimistic about growth over the next couple of years there warns that aging populations lackluster productivity and the possibility of a global trade war will lead to
4:26 pm
a downturn so countries in our view should work together to resolve disagreements without using exceptional measures the i.m.f. chief economist named the impulse for protectionism on the inequality that's been an integra feature off globalization however he insists the trading system is not to blame public optimism about the benefits of economic integration has been eroded over time by longstanding trends of job and wage polarization coupled with persistent subpar growth in median wages many households have seen little or no benefit from growth. now these trends in your view are more due to technology than to trade over others argue it's precisely the floor decades old economic prescriptions of the i.m.f. and world bank that have led to such disillusionment with global capitalism they tend to force governments to cut spending on health care and pensions for example
4:27 pm
on education and this is all over the world and they also tend to promote macro economic policies that will slow the economy on this a sara lee and they're doing that right now as the world economy is actually growing pretty well now ten years after the global financial crisis the i.m.f. is warning that once again stock markets and risky assets overvalued unsustainably and could crash causing devastation for those who never felt the benefits of what was called the recovery it often seems of meeting like this that despite the scholarly discussions about mustering the global economy and ensuring prosperity for all those overseeing the current framework of globalization are doomed to repeat mistakes she ever time see al-jazeera washington. well it's time for the weather now here's richard and really was not long ago we were talking of how cold europe was striken by from the u.k. a week ago and although it is actually quite bright there was

4:29 pm
london marathon probably no more than about twenty one degrees and the could well be some storms around but notice that he continues across into france although in parts of germany the temperatures will be easing back meanwhile making a big thing of all this fine weather we've got across western areas to see how the cold air continues to penetrate across parts of eastern europe indeed to move from suffering through to sunday look at moscow the risk of snow and temperatures of just eight degrees. that's all the weather but still ahead here on the officer in news are passing the baton role castro's hands over cuba's presidency to his project miguel canel. out with the old how nepal is trying to clear the air and its roads. also in spall the new orleans pelicans are flying higher as they head closer to advancing in the n.b.a. playoffs do stay with us here on.

4:31 pm
welcome back you're watching al-jazeera i'm still romney a reminder of our top news stories this news hour two palestinians have been killed by israeli soldiers during protests on the israeli gaza border the deaths of bring the total to thirty five palestinians killed by the israeli army since the protests began last month sixty people have been injured in this latest rally. russia is denying us accusations of trying to delay international inspectors getting to the site of a suspected chemical attack in syria the team is still way to access to the area of duma almost
4:32 pm
a week after arriving. police in south africa's northwest province of fired rubber bullets at demonstrators who are saving protests for a third day the violence has force presence around the poser to cut short his trip to the united kingdom demonstrators are demanding the resignation of their regional leader who they say is corrupt. let's return to our top story on the protests in gaza medusa he is an associate professor of contemporary history of the middle east a qatar university. joins me again here on the secretary with us these protests now have been ongoing what coming into the fourth week would it be a month into this what are the palestinians trying to achieve despite what they're actually receiving from the israeli side you know the whole issue is about that it's the. biggest thing in aim fifteenth me where they can across the was so called the border between those and israel and they can go back to their own
4:33 pm
villages and cities were basically called now palestine. nine hundred forty eight of the israeli state basic so that is that's the aim of all of these demonstrations they want to tell the world the that is the right of return for palestinians and this should not be forgotten in any under any cancer circumstances but they've been telling that story and the tail to the international community in various forums at various locations at different times over the last seventy years and still the international community can do nothing really to bring the israelis and the palestinians to the table along with of course the big mediator in the room united states what is new in this movement actually is a peaceful. movement the people the ordinary palestinians there are behind it there is no specific organization or a prison of any of those palestinian organizations now that hamas now if i call
4:34 pm
anyone you know are behind all of this this is very peaceful movement and i think that is what their rely on this is the movement of the people they are calling to the world that don't forget our lives for return to our land have palestinians and lost faith in the way that their palestinian leaders are progressing the debate the conversation both domestically and internationally absolutely i think that is the normal orderly various things there are of those in call of the leadership they believe that all of these five between different palestinian faction is not. leading to anyway and that is the israelis are benefiting from that and try to show the world that divided so droom for this thing or we can talk to so basically they want to say ok we got this was happening of the leadership we have the voice you have to learn to listen to our voice basically when we look at what's happening at the moment in our audience can see you know tires on fire again and large crowds of people up by the israeli border no stone throwing loud noises maybe this is what we can see anyway and what our reporters on the ground are telling us we've seen this
4:35 pm
the last four weeks. no threat at all to the israeli state or that fence yet we are still seeing live ammunition being used from the israelis an excuse is normally we fear for our safety or our lives has been yes absolutely this is not a new as a ladies they always face the police they are using the you know the live in mission and this this week we saw this and there was a bank where the but is there aren't more close to the eighty's so this is something that's new i think the president they are well and of this movement because the movement the political discourse of the movement is what it is that it is for that reason they want to stop it as soon as possible they pushed egypt to mediate but it's thin in the not this into egyptian government so there are wanted of this continual continuous effort of those then i think they will they will continue using the mission until this movement stopped which is a what has happened just really thank you so much for your time so please like you . to europe now where the british media are reporting that prince charles has been named as the new head of the commonwealth he will succeed his mother queen
4:36 pm
elizabeth the second the meeting of the organization in windsor now they were calls to rotate the roll around the fifty three member states of the bloc well joining me now is barnaby phillips our correspondent who's in windsor and joins me now live and i suppose really. we have to perhaps ask is why charles what would charles bring to the organization now the queen has stepped to one side. well the child has been confirmed as a successor just to draw that distinction and that was the issue many people thought that this was a hereditary title that just went down through the british royal family it wasn't this was a diplomatic a political battle game if you like which the british government or the british royal family had to win and what we understand happened at the retreat in windsor today is that it was confirmed that when the queen presumably passes away charles will be the next head of the commonwealth in practical terms it's tended to operate
4:37 pm
that way in recent years the queen has made it clear now in her early ninety's that she is reluctant to travel abroad she hasn't been to recent commonwealth heads of government summits a broad child has taken place and i think it's reasonable to assume that of course with the queen at that age and with commonwealth some it's not due to return to this country for many years this is the last time that the queen would have been presiding over a common law summit as host as well as not just a chance to have a cup of tea and say hello was it barnaby there are important discussions happening behind the scenes with the foreign secretary at the heart of the. yes poor boris johnson held an interesting meeting this morning with his zimbabwean counterpart the super mario and the backstory there of course is that zimbabwe left the commonwealth in two thousand and three former president robert mugabe took it
4:38 pm
out unhappy at criticism from the commonwealth and from britain he said it was a neo colonial club and wanted no place in it i suppose the question has been since robert mugabe was overthrown in a military intervention hundred fifty days ago would zimbabwe find its way back into the commonwealth the british government would like that other african governments would like that i spoke a short time ago to the kenyan foreign minister and she told al-jazeera that they would like to see zimbabwe back in but i think there's a slight sense of hold on we can't go too fast that would look rather indecent let's see what happens with zimbabwe's elections in july will they be free and fair would amazon want to allow the opposition to compete fairly in a way that was so difficult for the opposition under robert mugabe and i and i think that there will be people in the zimbabwean opposition in the m.d.c. who are saying you know there's a slight sense of the commonwealth may be acting with indecent haste let's see to
4:39 pm
what extent democracy is entrenched before zimbabwe comes back into the club but i suppose that the bigger picture style is that what's interesting is that we criticize the commonwealth's relevance time and time again and yet countries like zimbabwe now apparently like gambia in the past like nigeria before it like pakistan a couple of times when they're forced out or move out they often tend to want to find a way back into the club in the future or see what happens certainly in the coming hours or even days and once for the moment barnaby always a pleasure to speak to you thank you. the etr separatist group in the bass region of spain has apologized to the victims of its campaign the apology comes a few weeks before the group's dissolution more than eight hundred fifty people died during a forty year campaign of bombings extortions attacks before a ceasefire was agreed in two thousand and eleven police evacuated thousands of people in central berlin to remove an unexploded world war two bomb now the authorities have warned of transport disruption the british bomb was found on

4:41 pm
these canelo is a communist party cato cording to castro has passed all the tests of loyalty to the cuban revolution. but the real end of the castro era will take another three years from. when the party congress and the gradual and orderly transfer of our main responsibilities are made to the new generations it is then it might help allows that i will become just one more soldier along with the cuban people defending this revolution. on the streets there was no commotion and little excitement. i magine there won't be any drastic change anytime soon but something will change for better or worse. there i'm not watching this i hope there is a change for the better that's what we're all hoping for. with an israel and subsidies almost gone. need to transform cuba's ailing soviet style economy he is in for why we're. the world loses. he knows the

4:49 pm
thank you very much sir how will manage often ivanka has announced he'll be leaving the english premier league club off to twenty two years at the helm he's the longest serving manager in league history in the premier league three times and lifted the f.a. cup on seven occasions but in a statement on also is website he said off to careful consideration and following discussions with the club i feel is the right time for me to step down i'm grateful for having had the privilege to suffer so many memorable is a wedding with looks back of bankers time with the north london. when i asked them vango arrived at arsenal from japanese football in one nine hundred ninety six fans were asking are sent home but he leaves the club as one of the most influential and
4:50 pm
longest serving manages in football history. the frenchman bought a philosophy developed my knee at monaco on the pitch attractive football of it looking after the body with intelligent exercise and nutrition standard now at the time it was revolutionary that same inherited had enjoyed some success but was infamous for bad habits toll it took only two years for avengers ass know to win a premier league and cup double and they did it again in two thousand and so their main rivals were manchester united and the verbal sparring between van gogh and alex ferguson was dominating english football they later became friends by now frenchman c.r.b. armory converted from winger to striker was the jewel in their crown vegas' finest achievement came in two thousand and four when arsenal completed an entire premier league season on base and they were dubbed the invincible but despite the faced in england there was famine in europe arsenal could not win the champions league
4:51 pm
coming closest in two thousand and six when they were beaten two one by barcelona in paris that summer arsenal moved from their famous hybrid ground to a new state of the art stadium near by the emirates arsenal was succeeding as a business but the trophies had dried up in fact they went ten years without a trophy until the twenty fourteen f.a. cup it was venice unique status that kept his job but the disquiet of arsenal fans was growing his new team sky pretty football but it was not effective enough yet another champions league failure a ten two humiliation but by munich was marked by a fan's protest outside the stadium and it wasn't the only one vendor finally reluctantly left the job he loved. but his extraordinary writing will never be forgotten and. i'm joined now by chris we will correspondent the gold dot com chris thanks for joining us thank goodness for tough call for the threat down for a long time why do you think they've made the decision now. on that well yes it's
4:52 pm
my understanding the also the bank was under pressure from the also board who basically told him that they want him to leave this summer and instead of being pushed out he's opted to go out on his own terms of sales and bank as being arsenal for over two decades he's won a lot of trophies but the second all through this. the past ten years haven't been as successful as his first period. and as your report just said there's been a lot of foreign disgruntlement. move to a new stadium was meant to be a bid to increase the finances increased revenues and change the club for the better but we've seen this season especially there's been a lot of lot of apathy inside the stadium fans. not turning up to games as much as they used to and there just seems to be a lot of the inside the stadium i think also in bangor so those who know him
4:53 pm
closely he's a stubborn man as well as a very intelligent man but it's a decision which he's been putting off for a long time now he's had lots of opportunities to leave arsenal especially after the f.a. cup wins of recent years but i think now is definitely the right time for him so the what kind of legacy do you think he'll leave behind him for the cloud. well last election stereo marie said he has an untouchable legacy and i think that's difficult to argue with one's side in many things for all snow he's revolutionized english football but now all the managers have come in we've seen the likes of pep guardiola antonio. and they have revolutionized english football with their new methods then you tactics and methodology and i think it also can go on to win and that would be the legacy for austin bengal that would be the first european trophy . you know ten major trophies in twenty years eight hundred premier league games at these guys and also
4:54 pm
a legend there's no mistake about that but like all things like all good things they do come to an end what do you think the new day the long often of fans are that ready for is that some kind of apprehension for the future. i think this is a decision which has been a long time coming. behind the scenes we know that the chief executive ivan gazidis is been planning for this departure for a long time he's brought in a new head of recruitment a new contract negotiator and you had a football relations all of these new arrivals basically signaling the end of all some vendors right now also know the club are modernizing the club are going forward the only thing left really to change was the manager. and i think you'll see in the next few weeks the tributes are going to be pouring in for us and i don't think his legacy is going to remain. think his legacy is going to be tarnished i think what he's done for the club think this football will never be repeated. alex ferguson is kind of on the part of us and angered soames of what
4:55 pm
he's achieved and trophies and silverware and everything like that but also and then go obviously in the legend of the english game but also and chris if only days that what people are talking about as a potential think. well she names have been mentioned massimo alegria from the events of this very successful in europe this season diego simeone a arsenal face off that's going to drink in the euro yard to leak something on the next week that first leg in in in north london those are two names have been mentioned but patrick vieira was actually mentioned by olsen then get himself in the press conference yesterday ahead of the weekend's game against west ham and he would be an interesting one x. arsenal caps in he's got experience in new york. and oversleep he would be a very astute appointment for the fans because the fans still love him of course there's lots of names have been bandied about vieira is one who could be a potential favorite thank you very much chris lee correspondent the gulf.
