12:01 am
a victory at the bonnet co formula one grand prix for better more later in the program. first to colombia where polls have closed in the country's historic presidential election the first sense of peace deal was signed with the fark in twenty sixteen front runner even decay has vowed to undo aspects of the accord which he sees as too lenient on the rebel group let's go straight to our last american editor lucien human who is in bogota so any clues yet any indication how the voting has gone. just a second ago the sirens went off here and the vote counting began it's still much too early to know what the result is going to be they are as you can see right behind me our you will be seeing it just a moment they are putting the votes inside bags that are going to be counting them
12:02 am
one by one out loud in this area we're expecting the left wing handed it. to do very very well indeed he is a former mayor of of. the front runner though so in other parts of the city he will probably get a much better showing but it's the interesting thing about this is that it's been the first election in. history where there hasn't been violence it's been the most peaceful election ever and that in itself is an extraordinary feat and something that colombians have never seen after two hundred years of independence so peaceful but how about clean any any suggestion that any kind of vote tampering. absolutely unfortunately we can't say the same about how transparent this is there have always been allegations of of tampering with the votes of people being forced
12:03 am
to vote for someone they didn't want to have being pressured of being paid off of ballot stuffing and there have been those same allegations this time around at least three mares have been suspended in fact precisely for having done that and the second one who is the second candidate rather who is supposed to be leading in the polls is the left wing candidate. who already is saying that there are is a fraud in the works to keep him from winning he is claiming that there is a chance that the whole software that is being used after the votes are counted has already been intervened to prevent him from winning he has not given us any evidence of that yet but if the result is an extremely close ones we could expect some trouble and as we were saying this is the. historic election because it's the first since the peace accord the first one rebels are actually voting themselves but how could that he still indeed be affected after this election. absolutely and one of the crucial points of this election if even the the
12:04 am
conservative candidate who is backed by the former president. both of them staunch enemies of this peace deal would if he were to win this election then it might be all over at least that is what a lot of people are predicting he told me that he wouldn't completely scrap the peace deal that he would keep some of it but it's enough for him to want to intervene the part that deals with the imprisonment or not or the extradition or not of the rebel leaders for the whole thing to possibly just fall apart while the other candidate the other almost all of the other candidates are still saying that they want to keep this deal together a deal that is already having a lot of problems because if the government has not been implementing it the way that the rebels had expected so a lot is hanging in the balance here this peaceful. electoral day that we've just seen may or may not be repeated in the future depending on what happens here good to get your thoughts on the day flew cname in their life for us in bogota. u.s.
12:05 am
president donald trump says his team has arrived in north korea to make arrangements for the plant historic summit with kim jong il and that meeting is expected to take place on june the twelfth in singapore striking a more positive tone trump also said he believes north korea has the potential to become a great economic and financial nation is comments come after south korea's a president in north korea was committed to the summit and why the denuclearization andrew thomas reports from seoul. the surprise summit the second meeting in a month between moon j. and kim jong un was arranged just hours in advance it was held in secret this footage she was released only afterwards by the two governments of north korea's with excited commentary attached. what's clear is that the sudden into a korean summit was a direct response to donald trump's letter canceling the june twelfth north korea
12:06 am
u.s. summit the leaders of both careers want that back on littlejohn's. we have agreed that the two top summit should be held successfully and that our journey to the korean peninsula as denuclearization and perpetual peace should not be halted president said kim jong un once again committed to denuclearize ation and that he had told him that president trump in return would end hostile relations and cooperate economically this was not a meeting president trump was told about in advance but in washington tonight he hinted he could yet be traveling to singapore a lot of people are working on it it's moving along very nicely so we're looking at june twelfth inching up or that hasn't changed. and it's more along pretty well analysts the splits on who's driving the agenda donald trump is seen as a person who can start a war and the last say forty eight hours to get maybe more of the fear that dormant
12:07 am
thompson astray show is going to cancel the summit and then this if you lead to a new escalation of tension some probably of what if this year has been decisive others think it's kim in the driving seat they think his commitment to denuclearize ation means u.s. withdrawal from the region to not unilateral north korean disarmament in exchange for the lifting of sanctions i think it's the north koreans driven disengagement consolidate for strategic nuclear deterrence they've decided that they can push forward under those reasons not only with the united states but also south korea and reengage with china they have a clear pathway forward whoever is driving the june twelfth singapore summit is looking a lot more likely than it was it seems like longer but it was only three days ago that the u.s. north korean summit was suddenly called off since then we've been on what some have called a diplomatic rollercoaster but roller coasters run along tracks someone designs
12:08 am
them plans the twists and turns this ride is altogether different and a lot more serious under thomas al jazeera so. mike hanna has the latest now from washington d.c. . the state department has confirmed that a u.s. negotiating team has traveled to the north korean side of the demilitarized zone for negotiations hitting the team is some king now he's a former ambassador to south korea and he was part of the delegations that the go seated during the so-called six party talks between two thousand and three after all they broke down in two thousand and nine now interestingly enough on the north korean side their chief negotiator is chose. she's a deputy foreign minister and was part of the north korean delegation during those six nation talks so certainly the go see it is from both sides know each other well
12:09 am
aware of the history of the ongoing crisis in north korea now what they are doing we understand is to set an agenda for the talks should they take place on june the twelfth without a clear agenda discussed over the next three days is likely to be no summit we'll just have to turn on the is a former u.s. state department special envoy for negotiations with north korea and joins me now live from washington d.c. thanks very much for coming on to there and i first wanted to ask you we often elinor freshened north korea speaks with one voice but could some of the sort of flip flopping with what's going on in the past few days indeed weeks with regards to this u.s. and north korean summit could that be due to different factions within north korea having different opinions. i don't think there are different factions for say i think what really happened here was the statement from appealing young which was
12:10 am
very controversial i mean it was very offensive with spoke about the possibility of a nuclear standoff with the united states and it was very critical of vice president. also we were unable to have a dialogue with north korea about logistics in singapore i think it was a pressure on kim jong un to sort of say let's not go too fast let's let the americans understand we have some of our requirements here and let's not look too anxious so i think it was a bit of posturing on the part of north korea but i think it was posturing approve the highest level so i don't think they're factions percent a i think there's a bit of pressure on kim jong going to do is best to retain some nuclear weapons capabilities and some of those requirements that the north koreans may well want they've always talked about uncomfortableness with the american a south korean military exercises on the border now all this pressure on to say yes you will sign it to denuclearize sation and you think the has to be a bit of quid pro quo here with the american this to say yes ok as well as the
12:11 am
economic sanctions being lifted we will look at that as well. you know i think the quid here really is the security assurances that north korea knows that they will be getting this is a this is a key demand from north korea and i think the two visits from our secretary of state mike pompei all made it very clear the u.s. is prepared to give them those security assurances a peace treaty to end the korean war but also a process to normalize relations with the united states which would facilitate economic development initiatives coming out of the kim jong un government so i think those things are on the table and it's very clear to the leadership in pyongyang it's available to them i think the military presence in south korea is an issue between the united states of the republic of korea obviously down the road that's probably most likely an issue that eventually will be discussed but between the united states and south korea personally i don't believe it should be on the
12:12 am
table for any summit with the president of the united states and then going out and putting on the spot hey do you think they could still collapse such a thing that we now say fall down the road to so much being said and money should to come back around again and put it back together again you think it's definitely going to go ahead you know i think it's going ahead with whether we go ahead on the twelfth of june or a bit later is the question but i think it will go ahead there's an impetus here and i think that impetus obviously is also coming indeed coming from kim jong un who wants to work on the economic development initiatives in north korea wants to improve the economic situation in north korea has made that very clear since november of last year and his new year's address his focus is on economic development he has made it clear to the world he has a nuclear deterrent capability he doesn't have to prove himself any longer but his focus is on that so i think he's made that strategic decision and for that reason i think he very much wants to have a summit with the president of the united states the first time if you will
12:13 am
a sitting president president has met with the leader of north korea so i think this is important for the north korea i think it will happen the question is will it happen on the twelfth of june or bit later. very good to get your thoughts on this thanks started so much for joining us now as they were just as if to try thank you thank you good luck. still to come on the al-jazeera news hour anti immigration anti european union and counting muslim germany's far right goes on the march and lead. from a population of seventy five to close to three thousand there and asked some to find out about the mission to save the one on indian rhino and install the defending champion palace out of the french open and the opening round that story coming up with peter. i. now months of political wrangling have failed to produce
12:14 am
a new government in italy prime minister designate giuseppe contest says is officially giving up on forming an administration after the president rejected his coalition's choice for economy minister president says he has been quick to defend himself saying he had to block the euro skeptic candidate to protect the economy and the savings of all italians his decision has also angered the tea party populist coalition of the leak and five star parties who have called it unacceptable and called for his impeachment al-jazeera is nadine barber reports. of two weeks of talks in hopes of a breakthrough italy's prime minister designate throws in the towel. i have enough of that which i have been given by the president of the republic to form a government of china. has been asked by the so-called populist coalition which between the one the most seats in the march election with forming a viable cabinet now he says that's proved
12:15 am
a bridge too far of the sticking point the proposed economy minister paulose of owner a former minister who's also a well known euro skeptic italy's president says voters would have sent a worrying message to italy's partners and the financial markets. they love villa can see that assume not because. individual i don't want someone who supports and which was expressed more the war that would inevitably lead from the right. up until the last minute but leader of the right wing likud party had insisted his pick for economy minister must not be vetoed speaking live on social media late on sunday he called the president's rejection antidemocratic. said no he said there will not be a government we work for nothing we will have a technocrat government i ask of the a democracy italy the italian decide or do the germans or french decide it's absolutely incredible from my point of view. salvini wants fresh elections so to.
12:16 am
a leader of the five star movement which got the most votes in march in one version there was over fifty percent support for two political parties parties that want to change to want to represent the talents in their interests but in the end a way to block it is always seems to be found the president is expected to decide his next step on a monday he could well see another non-politician given the job of heading an interim government for italians political instability is a fact of life one many hoped was about to change. al-jazeera and joining us now via skype from rome is. she's an assistant professor of international relations and global politics and the american university of so much for coming on to. make some sense of i think. of italian politics a bit confused by the first thing i wanted to say was why were they refusal by the president to rubber stamp just the economy minister why would that mean the whole
12:17 am
thing comes crashing down. well that first of all thank you so much for having me well actually the problem is the position held by the two parties which are supposed to form a new government which is the five star movement and the lead by led by salvini so it's not really a technicality simply a matter of political will they said this is the whole package so take it or leave it's and the president of the republic said well i'm not ready to accept this kind of reasoning so this is essentially why apparently we want have we managed to get a government in the last few days and the next question i think many of us are asking is how come the to cheerlead just to have obviously been elected by the electorate and who are forming this new government how come the president can tell them who they should or should have in the cabinet that that's the way i know the system is set up but could that not only training pitch meant is that possible. no
12:18 am
i do see that as a possibility so the whole in a sexually the press of the republic is acting absolutely within the boundaries of his constitutional prerogatives so i mean again this is a very unusual sign frequently by the i mean we we've seen presidents of the republic of the saying is so to speak perspective mr c. top and back in nineteen the ninety's for instance when berlusconi tries to you know get a lawyer one of these lawyers appointed that is a minister of justice happens again with renzi and so on and so forth now the usual way the situation finds you know it's old is you know the a new name is proposed by the political leaders but a d's particular time the two leaders of the five star movement and league are not ready to do that but another name is coming to the frame now kahlo cuts around late
12:19 am
but the president is supposed to be summoned to go and see him on monday what side of the bar is he like you should be the one that now is off to full minute government is that we've got the reason he's been summoned and actually he's been summoned because essentially he's a some kind of you know new trial figure which is appreciated more or less by the whole parties so it's like he's respected by all parties so it could be a broker probably of some kind of new deal. and i mean a less of an agreement is sound the weather for a new technocratic governments or. something of the sorts we will need to go to new elections which is particularly problematic because either it is means that we would either need to go to the polls at the end of july which is extremely again strange in the history of detail you don't think it really happened or we would
12:20 am
need to go and vote in september but again this is very tricky and very dangerous in a way because that's when. the actually the budget deal is negotiated so we'll see what happens indeed today it's far from over so i should also thank you so much for speaking to us and al-jazeera thank you three palestinians have been killed by israeli shelling in gaza it happened east of the city of rafa in the southern gaza strip israel's military says the men were armed members of the group islamic jihad and more than one hundred have been killed by israeli fire in the gaza strip since most protests broke out in march. and two boats will leave gaza this week with palestinians who need hospital care on board they're trying to break a blockade imposed by israel which has prevented medical supplies from getting into the territory and patients from leaving hospitals have been struggling to treat
12:21 am
thousands of palestinians who've been wounded by israeli bullets during recent protests but it smith reports. gaza is blockaded by israel on all sides sea included but this week two boats loaded with patients who need hospital treatment and students with university places will try to breach israel's sea blockade which begins sixteen kilometers out in the mediterranean that passengers have a strong determination to break this siege whatever the circumstances whatever the challenges whatever the obstacles that would have been that would be imposed by the israeli side gaza's hospitals are full of patients who need urgent medical treatment there are those injured in two months of protests and longer term cases at least now i have sixty five of them already admitted those who would want to go in the marshall for turn but there are many other cases of cancer and open heart surgeries and many other complicated newer surgical cases all the better cases all of them need to travel abroad because of shortage of persil it is induced by the
12:22 am
israeli blockade in gaza strip and why can't they travel abroad because the bulk of our seed must have time and what these patients should probably in time he can say to a patient why when cancer come back up to three months that he will deteriorate and you have too much complication they cannot wait life long waiting for the support of god and. the popes that will be used to being kept hidden organizers fear israel will try to destroy them before they leave the port and reality the boats are not going to get any further than israel's maritime blockade which is as tightly and harshly enforced as the land blockade but at least those on the boats will highlight again the open prison like conditions that there are here in gaza that prevent almost anyone from leaving burnitz with al-jazeera gaza. a protest against refugees has been taking place in badland thousands of supporters and they far right policy alternative. f.t. march through the capital the party swept into parliament last year on
12:23 am
a wave of anti migrant sentiment and is now the largest opposition bloc. is in berlin. a highly vocal confrontation here in berlin but not a violent one alternative for germany held a large rally outside first of all the berlin main train station then marched through the streets through the brandenburg gate behind me where they held actual demonstrations of the speeches from the party leaders but it was a message which the protesters and more many more thousands of them on the streets of berlin and members of the in terms of germany they tried to drown out the message of this party it first came into the parliament in the last elections and getting old in ninety six they are now the main opposition party in germany they have overtaken the green party and they're beginning to challenge the social democrats to a part of the grand coalition so there is
12:24 am
a movement here towards the extreme right of populist movement a movement it was essentially by the large number of voters many of them that came in on angela merkel's open open borders all the see so this is a problem that's going to remain here in germany the fact that in the book in the start you're hearing paranoid race extended phobic anti semitic remarks and you know hearing them in little rallies on the streets of live this is a problem that's going to be causing ructions within the grand coalition the social democrats want to keep a liberal attitude towards refugees but those parties trying to tighten up the borders restrict immigration two hundred. thousands a year so that's causing attention even within a grand coalition and we're going to see more scenes like this and we're going to hear more from the old germany because now essentially they see this growing mainly
12:25 am
the demographics imported from east blue collar workers the unemployed in the older people in the east in germany who fear that communities are being changed forever and who fear for their future so we'll see many more of these demonstrations and many board these confrontations. india's cassy rang a national park is home to the largest population of the protected one whole and indian reiners is a world heritage sites and considered a conservation success story but the rhinos still face two big threats poaches and the annual monsoon floods probably jacob reports on efforts to preserve the species . these rhino called love them leaving only when they see they keep that signals feeding time at the center for wildlife we have taken and conservation in. the car between one and five years old and still require daily milk but bottles have a place but the rhinos mothers were killed either by poachers or floods. even
