russia. was almost always pushkin square they were met by a small group with very different values. and describing themselves as patriots they want to prevent a ukraine stop arising in russia just met we have currently being officially ruled by a constitution that was written for us by american specialists well under foreign rule not everyone here is not all the supporters people came here because they see that things are bad in the country but they don't understand why so and they were told by some people that it is putin to be blamed in everything people can't figure out such things for themselves their tempers started to rise how did that point to the police moved in. so they were arrest that began in other parts of russia i do want to say now that here in moscow it was the police have just robbed a young got out of the crowd and looked like she was crying so dragging her off to
5:04 am
the police where. the numbers of detentions take top which protest after protest i was dragged away so too was the man who calls this demonstration alexina valmy he's an anti corruption opposition leader who was banned from presidential elections because of a fraud conviction he insists was. abrogated his online videos exposing the corruption of russia's ruling elite have made him a critic of the kremlin and a popular resistance figure among many russians who want something different. putin's hold on power for another six years he's tightened control of the media and internet and made protesting much harder his assertive foreign policy is popular with many russians moscow's riot police follow detentions with a neck stacked in their rough clearing the square the valley supporters have been through this before you know probably go through it all again they feel it's their
5:05 am
only remaining way to be heard rory talents al-jazeera moscow samuel green is the director of king's russia king's college in london he says the valleys biggest challenge is proving to supporters that the protests will make a difference. it is almost impossible to estimate how much support he does or could possibly have obviously he was not allowed to contest the elections and we don't know how many people would have voted for him even if. he had been allowed or he is not visible on television and so his ability to to reach people through formal means is quite limited he has and his supporters have opened a network of volunteer centers around the country which participate in organizing these sorts of things also trying to get involved in local protest movements but the reality is that. most people in russia will not see politics either formal politics or or street politics as a fruitful way of of problem solving so his or his big challenge is to to
5:06 am
demonstrate that something can actually be achieved it's very reminiscent of what we saw around about this time in may twenty twelve just after putin the last time was was reelected there was one last protest right before his inauguration it resulted in large numbers of arrests after which a couple dozen people went to prison for fairly lengthy prison terms i have no idea whether we'll see something similar now but in both cases up until the election the government held back void of the sorts of scenes that we've seen today in order i think to provide present the elections as relatively open relatively free and fair but then once the thing was said and done certainly wanted to say that the game's over the u.s. is beefing up its navy presence in the north atlantic just seven years after it was stood down pentagon says it's to deal with the increased threat from russia than estabrook reports. the u.s.

navy says its second fleet will be back in commission this summer operating out of norfolk virginia the fleet which was eliminated in a cost cutting move seven years ago is being reestablished to counter what the pentagon calls a rising throughout from russia at a ceremony in norfolk on friday admiral john richardson chief of naval operations said our national defense makes it clear that we are back in an era of great power competition as the security environment continues to grow more challenging and complex. russia's navy has stepped up patrols in the atlantic and both russia and nato have been building up forces in eastern europe at levels not seen in decades while russia has fewer ships than it did during the height of the cold war u.s. officials are especially concerned about its expanded submarine fleet and increased presence in the atlantic ocean but one military expert sees this more as saber rattling than an outright threat of war i think what the russians will do is
5:08 am
probably over time react with more submarines operating in the atlantic more messages to us that be aware but i think that this will be kept at a relatively low level and i really don't see a huge escalation or any escalation proceeding from these actions the u.s. second fleet will be responsible for an area extending halfway across the atlantic and will include a staff of more than two hundred dian us to brooke al-jazeera. protesters have gathered outside the u.s. national rifle association's annual meeting in dallas texas calls for stricter gun control laws have been getting louder since a high school shooting in florida killed seventeen people earlier this year president trump address thousands of gun owners at the convention on friday valiant to protect their rights castro has more from dallas. a father's pain from losing his son in the parkland florida school shooting turned

potentially damaging events that took place during the course of the six friday protest along the gaza border came in the far south near the only cargo crossing from israeli territory into gaza where five days a week each of those days hundreds of trucks will arrive bringing food medical supplies humanitarian aid and there was a group of palestinian protesters who got into the palestinian side of that facility and set about creating extensive damage gas and fuel pipelines were set on fire as were a number of other facilities we saw evidence of that ourselves the aftermath some burnt out huts were being trucked away from the border into gaza the israeli military called it a cynical act of terror but the account that we got from one witness when we visited the protest site near the crossing was very different he said that people had been driven in the direction of the crossing by tear gas once there they
5:25 am
opportunistically got inside and then vented their frustrations in what he said was a mistaken way and that's the time of the marble we get aid from europe and the world through here people know what displaced means it's not the plan of the protesters to burn a place like that it was a mistake official palestinian sources tell us that the damage done could run into the millions of dollars and there were fears when first it was discovered that that could take some weeks to fix up and allow this vital economic artery to flow again however what we're hearing is that despite all the accusations from the israeli military there are also concerns about the impact of that and so there are hopes at least that it will reopen as per usual on sunday we've spoken to the head of the palestinian business association here in gaza he says that the israeli military has been there from very early on saturday bringing in fresh equipment and doing what they can to make sure that things do operate again. and as soon as

u.a.e. is part of the saudi led coalition supporting yemen's internationally recognized government led by president abbot robbie mansell heidi. it's fighting against iranian backed rebels who control large parts of the country but the u.a.e. has permitted other separatists in southern yemen at the expense of the government analysts say the u.a.e. has a wider goal in mind if you consider the strategy that the united arab emirates have driven in yemen over the past three years actually we see that there is a pattern of war going which doesn't necessarily directly concern fighting the who these or reinstating the higher the government as it was said in two thousand and fifteen when the coalition started but it's more about securing a morality interest in the south of yemen access to the indian ocean access to the bubble munda yemen has suffered three years of will in which thousands of people

government more than we can tell you what it is in the event and the responsibility and the result that the forget the. shelter after the storm on al-jazeera. with bureaus spawning six continents across the globe. to. al-jazeera is correspondents live in green the stories they tell. me are fluent in world news.
5:32 am
hello again you're watching al-jazeera mind of our top stories this hour. riot police in russia have detained opposition leader alexei no more than a thousand of his supporters in anti-government demonstrations he had called for nationwide rallies against president vladimir putin will be inaugurated for a fourth term on monday. thousands of people have been forced to move on after a magnitude six point nine earthquake shook. the biggest to hit the island in decades that follows the eruption of killer whale volcano which began spewing lauer on thursday. the u.s. is beefing up its naval presence presence in the north atlantic to deal with a rising threat from russia its reviving its second fleet which was disbanded seven years ago to save money the move coincides with a steady buildup of russian and nato forces in eastern europe to levels not seen
5:33 am
for decades. more on this let's talk to robert hunter a senior fellow at the center for transatlantic relations at john hopkins university joins us live now from washington via skype thanks from a very much for being with us so. what do you think is the main motive here for for the united states. i think the administration is trying to send a couple of signals oh one they're saying to the russians we do take what you are doing very seriously more important i think is to try to reassure countries in central europe the baltic states poland and the like that are worried about what mr putin and russia have been doing in central europe particularly in ukraine after all the united states has a certain number of ships you could organize them and different ways and if you put them in a new thing and call it the second flight it doesn't really change anything except
5:34 am
symbolically and maybe in a bit of training because ships to resign by the united states when and where they are needed and what you call them really is a secondary matter and how do you expect russia to respond to this or i think they'll probably say that this is more indication this russian speaking now the united states doesn't want to include them in the outside world that it is being provocative a. rush with america's difficult i don't expect them to do anything differently except the battle of words that's going on the problem in the battle of words between the united states and russia is that things can get out of hand point as we've been seeing in the middle east for example. and it's been it's been put forward that this this movie is part of a switch to it to a new era of what's known as great power competition in other words kind of rivalry
5:35 am
between. big powers like like russia the united states and china. rather than what we've seen over the last few years which is. that countering the threat of non-state actors what do you think of that all humans. well the argument is coming out of the defense department it was already seen that. the united states and china would find themselves as competitors as china has written so dramatically it was also inevitable that russia would recover from the ashes of the coach or to become a somewhat serious country again and when efforts to work something out with the russians failed they'd it's a market we did see a moment thanks yes you get more into competition but my concern is that too many people here and in some parts of europe and maybe also russia are
5:36 am
seeing this in particularly military terms rather than saying all right there need to be diplomatic steps taken there need to be serious people on both sides say here in washington and also in moscow talking about things that we do have in common we do have in common about his spread of nuclear weapons we have in common making sure the climate change just continues it's not out of control and and the arctic is you as well we do have in common not having a new cold war there's an awful lot we have in common unfortunately it has been useful to some people in washington and clearly useful also mr putin to see this in confrontational terms and i fear more money is going to go in the military on both sides and now we're on our side to no good purpose good to speak with you robin

hudson there in washington thank you. now an al-jazeera investigation has found hundreds of mexicans of undergone experimental and unregulated medical procedures by the country's flagship neurological institute over a fourteen year period patients were fitted with a device to drain fluid from the brain but in some cases it made their conditions worse john heilemann as part one of this engineer investigation. it's painful feel and look back at the time before she was hit by hydrocephalus a debilitating condition in which excess fluid builds up in the brain it's left her with massive headaches and speech problems. everything changed because i was a sports woman before i spent twenty years doing sports and i sold clothing everything and that she hoped that an operational cruise flagship institute for
5:38 am
neurology and neurosurgery would help her but what she didn't know was that doctors would hope with an experimental and the north arise device. and not just her four hundred seventy three other patients who went to the facility so implanted they were essentially guinea pigs in an unofficial trial carried out over a period of fourteen years they never asked me anything before operating they said something to my husband but never that they were going to do an experiment. three doctors working at the institute at the time spoke to al-jazeera it all said that light you learned the nearly five hundred patients weren't told the device was unauthorized nor nobody's case file included an informed consent about the experimental nature of the device not one. the national institute has refused to
5:39 am
clarify if patients were informed or not but we got access to six patient falls this is what's key to all of this the medical consent form in one of the cases and it's very general it doesn't mention that this is an experimental device that hasn't been authorized by the health ministry. but that's not all the three doctors out zero talk to say the device was simply a tube that relied on gravity to drain away fluid from the brain down to the stomach area and that relying on gravity meant that if a patient lay down it would flow back other devices used valves to stop that. it's just a tube it's technology from the fifty's it doesn't represent any sort of progress by a published studies the inventor of the cheap claimed it's precisely calculated diameter did regulate flow and stop fluid going back to the brain even when patients were climbed he said it worked better than valve eula devices. doctors told us several
5:40 am
patients had to have the device replaced but it's unclear how many suffered from any ill effects the names of those implanted have been released a many came from poor remote communities. it's a problem especially with patients without much money they feel ok and they go there last. year learned that was able to have another device fitted several years ago but the health continues to worsen at this point hopes of getting better or for justice a fading john home and al-jazeera mexico city and john heilemann has more from mexico in the second part of this special educator investigation explores how the unregulated practices were allowed to be carried out and discovers the consequences for all involved that's on al-jazeera on sunday. a peace talks
