a real case is to pick someone and say yes that's the person to terminate the plot are wrong these are being falsely accused in costa rate it was something he did not do the exploring the dark side of american justice the system with joe byrne and on al-jazeera. it is good to have you with us hello adrian for going to here in tow how with the news out from al-jazeera our top stories this hour more than one hundred refugees migrants are missing feared drowned after the boat capsized off libya's west coast the bodies of three young children have been recovered at least sixteen people
survived. the united nations refugee agency says the number of displaced people in southern syria has tripled to one hundred sixty thousand in the past five days it follows intense fighting in a ten day offensive by government russian forces. and a cease fire deal to end south sudan's five. a civil war has just come into force president salva kiir rebel leader signed the agreement on wednesday it calls for the forming of a transitional government within four months. people in mexico go to the polls on sunday to choose their next president the front runner andras manuel lopez obrador is vying to reverse decades of decline in poverty in rural areas but as john holdren reports now from the state of michoacan it will be a tough pledge to fulfill. the mix can countryside decimated but poverty and empty but migration over decades. is one of the aging
population of small scale phone is struggling to compete with industrial scale operations in the world the mexico and the us for all that i know i produce grains but not money he says. many communities young have either left or turned to more lucrative ventures. they sell drugs they kidnap. for few days and then they get killed just next to my house there was head of a kidnapping. this man promises to change that presidential front runner andres manuel lopez obrador has made the neglected mix can country side a campaign priority. he said he were focused government support from large industrial producers to smaller farms help them get quality seeds technological know how better access to loans and the guaranteed minimum price for their crops it's all part of an ambitious plan for mexico to produce its own food.
you are buying everything abroad that we could grow in mexico me that's going to stop. in the past there were incredibly strong ties between mexicans and the land this is the birthplace of corn itself but it's a different country now daily with the urban population and the global market the question is if it's really possible or even worth the cost of resuscitating this sector. even lopez obrador team says the wholesale change he promises will be impossible one of been a straight. and i agree cultural economists who are in general support the plan of question dave price guarantees for individual farmers and in particular in full swing home grown food and carry a steep cost for authorities and consumers is because when testing the view that in
consequence it's going to be very expensive for the government and mexican taxpayer that. promise them so seems split between those two banking on a ruling party which has given them just enough to survive and those like a year or more voting in the hope of change john home and how does it make to account. jonathan fox is a professor of development studies at the school of international service at american university he joins us now via skype from washington good to have you with us for the last seventy years mexico has been led by leaders from the rights now we're looking at a strong left wing candidate lopez obrador potentially becoming president that could suggest a major shift in how the country will be governed now if lopez obrador wins will he be successful in turning the country around and tackling major issues like corruption violent crime the economy. well thank you the answer depends
a lot on on how much he wins by if he can win with a strong majority and the party that he has been leading in a majority in the congress he might be able to carry out some significant reforms keep in mind that for the last thirty years mexico has been governed by an alternation of different parties from the from the right as you say but it's really been a three way party system and none of those parties are hanging on the really all collapsing and look as a brother was party which split off from one of them represents a broad new coalition that has some strange bedfellows in it it's not a conventional left wing party where any means there are some centrists and right wing forces as well so if you can keep that that big tent that coalition he might have the credibility in the legitimacy to carry out some significant changes and keep in mind that the main challengers that mexican voters are concerned about are
not left right ideological issues their violence insecurity and corruption ok lopez obrador gave a speech to mounting the trumpet ministrations policy of separating children from families at the border branding it arrack and racist and inhumane so on one side of the border you've got this potentially left wing nationalist president on the other side of the rio grande day this trump a right wing nationalist how to deal with with a series with such fundamental differences in opinion. well first one doesn't need to be a left wing nationalist to be very strongly critical of trump's hardline and inhumane immigration policy and his rejection of the basic principles of asylum the wide range of of political forces in the united states including all the living first ladies. are critical of that so he's certainly not alone there but i think we need to remember that if we consider what kinds of of international leaders trump
respects he respects the leaders who stand up for their countries who are willing to to be to be tough and. he doesn't respect mexico's current outgoing president i think in part because he was perceived as weak so there could be some unexpected outcomes here ok i swear pick up on something you were saying a few moments ago the issue of the border as far as mexicans are concerned is not really that important as to masticate shoes the economy corruption of violence that that take priority as far as they're concerned yes i mean the border and the perception of the way much mexicans are treated in the u.s. there are great symbolic importance to many mexicans but it's not going to drive their choice of one presidential candidate over another they're feeling much more with the everyday challenges of the violence and insecurity and corruption and the persistent inequality in mexico was promised the with nafta mexico was going to
have a huge wave of economic development and and go from the third world to the first world and that those promises delivered only purport of the population in some regions and there are large parts of the country are left behind so those are the issues that are going to be really weighing on the on the minds of most mexican voters professor it's been really good to talk to you many thanks indeed to being with us that call john thank you daryn. the man accused of a mass shooting at a newspaper office in the u.s. state of maryland faces five charges of murder police say the thirty eight year old suspect had a vendetta against the paper and it's just a list of zeros hardy joe castro reports. despite what happened in their news room the staff of the capitol gazette about thursday's attack would not stop the presses rolling and so it was that less than twenty four hours later the paper's headline read five shot dead at the capitol with photos of the victims printed on

in the united states g.m. has proven itself unable to make automobiles in particular they do fine making trucks and s.u.v.s but they can't make automobiles that's what they're for the talking about putting in tariffs on. but what we've seen in the past when the u.s. imposes trade restraints we did this and one nine hundred eighty s. on all imported autos especially those coming from japan those those other producers simply shifted production to the united states that would be the sensible response so us as a whole may gain even if general motors loses as a result of these tariffs the u.s. nominee to head the un's migration agency has been snubbed it's only the second time in the bodies history that the agency won't be run by an american can isaacs was knocked out in early rounds of voting he'd coolest control of a seat by being forced to apologize for social media posts in which he disparaged muslims political centanni of its own you know will had deal been a zation at
