9:00 pm
it is going to will be. sacrifices that may. be sound as can be remembered. on al-jazeera. zero. zero zero zero zero zero i maryam namazie this is the news hour live from london coming up in the next sixty minutes. president trump is greeted by the british queen and a god of honor at windsor castle. but on the streets of central london the message is clear as tens of thousands rally to protest his visit and all the headlines the former prime minister nawaz sharif is
9:01 pm
back in his country been arrested on corruption charges and faces ten years in jail . while in pakistan southwest a suicide bombers targeted an election rally at least eighty five people have been killed and dozens more wounded. and i'm far as small be here with all the day's sport including. high praise from chief its president as the team's repair for the final two matches at russia's world cup. we begin with the latest on donald trump's visit to the u.k. the us president has just had tea with britain's queen elizabeth in the last few hours donald trump and the first lady melania trump welcome to windsor castle it was given a royal salute before inspecting the guard of honor alongside the ninety two year
9:02 pm
old jonah how is life for us now in windsor jonah any more details about the visit . not not in terms of what they were served or what sort of tea they drank no we we believe or we've not heard the country anywhere anyway that it will sort of passed without incident a meeting with the british monarch is of course itself a protocol minefield but it seems that the trump didn't put a foot wrong there was a good deal of pomp and pageantry mr trump presumably would have enjoyed that piped in and out by the marching band of the coldstream guards it didn't take more than about forty five minutes or so because he's now on his way up to scotland the queen would have been forgiven for being just a little relieved given the circumstances and all the controversy around this visit that this was not a full state occasion no open topped carriage ride up the mile or a banquet at buckingham palace just this. perhaps though the highlight of mr
9:03 pm
trump's visit he's often professed himself to be a major fan of the queen she it has to be said has met twelve u.s. presidents up to now so perhaps on occasion a little less forgettable for her all right thank you very much with all the latest from windsor joan hull but earlier the u.s. president held talks with the u.k. prime minister to resume a it's a country residence north of london the to reaffirm the special relationship and donald trump promised to support a post breaks it trade deal as despite reports in a british newspaper where he appears to criticize mays handling of breaks it lawrence lee has more now from buckinghamshire he came heralded by all the american military hardware that comes with a presidential visit but this carried an air of threats unheard of in relations between two countries supposed to be the best of friends because directly before the visit trump dropped the bomb telling the pro brics it sun newspaper that the
9:04 pm
british prime minister's plan for leaving the european union was basically rubbish and that he would not offer a trade deal in place. he also offered his support to terry's amaze nemesis boris johnson he resigned as foreign secretary over that plan trump said johnson would make a great prime minister impossible to read in any other way than a direct attack on may's already fragile leadership aides from both sides set about a gigantic damage limitation exercise so that after talks at checkers may explain the water exit plan from the european union actually meant trumps tone was entirely different once the brics that process is concluded and perhaps the u.k. has left the e.u. i don't know what they're going to do but whatever you do is ok with me that your decision whatever you're going to do is ok with us just make sure we can trade together that's all that matters was
9:05 pm
a relief for the british prime minister there will be no limit to the possibility of us doing trade deals around the rest of the world once we leave the european union on the basis of the agreement that was made here at checkers in that i've put forward to the european union the suspicion is that the newspaper article came from a whispering campaign against may provide semester political opponents intent on destroying and having trump c.-a if so and given that trumps are readily bought their ideas may surely would be forgiven for asking herself who her real friends should be before he arrived here donald trump once again describes himself as a very stable genius and yet it is striking how his position on bricks it seems to change dependent on who he's speaking to all deeply the people who will be most encouraged by all this all the european union who would surely argue to the u.k. government but it's far more straightforward to deal with them that is to deal with
9:06 pm
trump and say well he went to meet the queen the so-called special relationship in a place it has never been before a president who claims to love britain but whose inconsistent rhetoric raises enormous questions about his commitment to his political stability largely al-jazeera checkers. but a giant blimp depicting the u.s. president has a baby has been flying above london as part of massive protests against his visit tens of thousands of people demonstrated in the capital on friday one of more than one hundred organized protests during trump's four day visit charlie agita has been at the demonstrations in central london. this is london's gift to president trump a baby blimp with a phone that presided over the start of protests i proud in the capital have swelled into the tens of thousands as different groups joined together to send a message to the president as he. president trying to break the
9:07 pm
fuselage and he has contempt for democracies embrace a dictatorship things incredibly low value limited to try to. turn his everything that's wrong to trying to achieve them in a piece in the foldback history seems to be i'm still big he said if ok he's disgusting to me stop i this diverse group of people say they believe trump is a wrecking ball for race relations women's rights climate change sufficient and prosperity to handle the crowds the biggest police security operation on london streets since the riots in two thousand and eleven well the u.s. embassy has told americans to keep a low profile and exercise caution despite many americans joining the demonstrations but president trump's visit has been carefully choreographed to avoid the protests rates he's traveling by helicopter to venues outside london the president trying to be traveling mostly by a protest as they had to get creative and they're hoping this all jointly depicting trump as an angry baby will catch his eyes he flies over like the organizers say
9:08 pm
the stunt was an attempt to show the president's job like politics it was a preview a lot of them smuggled the city told president trump is reportedly unhappy about the blame and in an interview attacked london's meth his handling of terrorism and crime in the capital this was his response one of the things that americans love our city all the rights we have here the right to protest the right to have free speech the right to freedom of assembly and the idea that we would tell those rights because it may cause offense to president or somebody else i think americans would find objectionable why because their own constitution huh. the rights of freedom of speech freedom to protest freedom to assemble that right to protest will be exercised across the u.k. throughout the president's visit bad optics for president for him image is everything charlie and al jazeera. joins us live now from trafalgar square in central london and we've seen thousands turning out for protests today what is the
9:09 pm
crowd like then now we're looking at here really is the tail end of a day of protests across the capital is being described as a carnival of resistance and as we saw there in charlie angelus report it's been very very colorful indeed we've seen a range of speakers on the stage here in trafalgar square a couple of hours ago numbers peaked at around twenty thousand just all this square that's maximum capacity for this part of london we also saw the streets around here full of people to similar scenes replicated on a smaller level in other towns and cities across the country they're united in their slogans accusing trump of bigotry racism misfortune e you're disrespecting the environment by pulling out of the paris environmental accords but have also not really fully understanding the sensitivities of the political situation in the middle east as well they want to reserve may to do more
9:10 pm
to show a degree of resistance when it comes to donald trump's brash style of politics so they definitely feel that the covered government here in the u.k. is not doing enough really to send the right signals over to the other side of the atlantic ne we've seen other controversial leaders visiting the u.k. why has president chum's visit mobilize such a strong reaction. that's right we have seen controversial visitors to the u.k. come and go we've seen protests but nothing quite like this i think first and foremost is that donald trump because of the so-called special relationship between the u.k. and the u.s. has a real relevance here in the u.k. anything that he says will have a direct impact on the relationship of course between the two countries and also as a country edges ever closer towards breaks it the kind of relationship that the u.k. forces with the u.s. may have an impact on the life and livelihood of people going forward it will have potentially a massive impact on the nation's economy also donald trump and his style of
9:11 pm
politics resonates internationally and globally he's a master of the media yes very much in control of what's comes out in terms of social media and that of course resonates amongst the younger generation that have come out in force here to counter some of the statements that he's made he's made there's also a very much a personal issue or personal argument to him that he's tackled over queues for instance the national health service and the read organization here of being a failing organization he pointed the finger city home for failing the city in the wake of the attacks here last year he's also pointing the finger specifically at other well respected politicians to when that is really go under the skin of i think a lot of people here in the united kingdom across the political spectrum which is why they've come out here united in their resistance to his results here to britain thank you very much with all the latest from those protests in central london needs

9:18 pm
from washington chad what more do we know about these indictments. well the deputy attorney general says these what they say are russian military spy officials were attempting to influence the twenty six election he doesn't try to pass any judgment of the d.o.j. pass' no judgment on the effectiveness of their efforts but it was as far as they're concerned an attempt to interfere with the twenty sixteen elections among on the part of russian intelligence using various techniques spearfishing for example sending emails to members of the democratic presidential campaign with links where which would encourage them to type in their passwords but also hacking into computers and inserting software in there in order to steal data in addition to that the russians are alleged to have hacked into state election boards and and have taken the information personal information about five hundred thousand u.s. votes no evidence in this indictment about collusion that's something that everyone
9:19 pm
is very upset about of the allegations the possibility that donald trump's campaign actively colluded with the russians still no evidence presented as part of the rebel investigation to suggest that happened none here either there is evidence of a member of the trunk campaign was in touch with the russian intelligence officials who were posing as a hacker a lone hacker two point zero no evidence though that member of the trunk campaign knew that they were interacting with russian with a russian military intelligence operation alleged to be taking place by the russians and we should be clear these are allegations very unlikely ever to be proven in a court of law that these russians are very unlikely to be extradited to appear in a grand jury so they remain allegations but as you can imagine in the context of washington where anything to do with russia gets people's attention things are going a bit nuts around here at the moment right and what about the timing of these latest charges in the press just days before the trial in helsinki. knowing about
9:20 pm
the timing of the announcement by the deputy attorney general why oh donald trump was taking tea with the queen having said that though it seems this wouldn't have been a surprise to donald trump he was briefed on the forthcoming indictments by rod rosenstein a few days ago so he knew what was coming but also makes trump's comments at the press conference that chuck is very interesting what he was also you going to all you going to confront him about the allegations of meddling knowing what we now know the d.o.j. has he said well i will but i'm not expecting any kind of perry mason moment of law to be putin will say ok you got me he was also asked actually it said as he was leaving the press conference by a c.n.n. reporter but are you going to ask russia to stop interfering in our elections and he turned around and said yes having said that he will bring it up democrats in washington are already saying he probably should call the whole summit off unless this issue is the key issue about some of but that seems very unlikely right now
9:21 pm

9:27 pm
a deliberate attempt to force foreigners who often hold prominent positions to leave so by addressing the foreign nationals who are coming to add value to the community by not letting them come in the quality of life is reduced and that is more suffocating for palestinians forcing them to leave the country for people in morgan cooper's position it comes down to a series of near impossible choices to overstay their visas and never leave town for fear of an israeli i.d.f. check to try to renew her papers while here and risk rejection to travel overseas in the hope of getting a new visa on return and gamble that she won't be prevented permanently from coming home for sit in the occupied west bank. on the program. government in a fight. over which. angry protesters or the i.m.f. . u.s. secretary of state arrives in mexico to meet the country's newly elected president

9:29 pm
time of year it all depends on the humidity that's what dictates the temperature so forty four degrees and still with a fair amount of humidity in the air as we head through saturday but on sunday it's a very dry air and so the temperatures will get that bit higher so forty eight degrees hot but a dry heat for us that in towards the southern parts of africa we've got a fair amount of cloud in the south you can see it all drifting its way eastwards has brought us a fair amount of rain and it's going to continue to do so is it just nudges its way eastwards there on saturday then it's going to be durban where we see some of the heaviest outbreaks of rain nineteen degrees will be our maximum temperature but as that system pulls away things will turn a bit cooler behind it and then our maximum will be limited just to fifteen degrees . with. when diplomacy fields and fear sweeps in our borders are wide open wide open to drugs terrorists we've proven the barriers are built to impose division defectives

welcome back quick look at the top stories u.s. president donald trump has met britain's queen elizabeth at windsor castle as part of his four day working trip to the u.k. tens of thousands of protesters have been rallying in the capital to show their opposition to trump's policies. the former pakistani prime minister nawaz sharif and his daughter have been arrested after flying back to pakistan he was sentenced to ten years in jail on charges last week when eight into the purchase of luxury apartments in the u.k. . and at least one hundred twenty people have been killed and more than two hundred injured in a suicide attack on an election campaign rally in southwest pakistan i still have claimed responsibility for the attack. well now to zimbabwe where the main opposition party says police officers have been prevented from freely costing early
9:32 pm
votes ahead of the general election the july thirtieth poll will be the first since the ousting of longtime ruler robert mugabe the election commission insists its process is being overseen by monitors but that hasn't abated fears of vote rigging and fraud. has more from harare. the role of the police and army cheering elections in zimbabwe has always been controversial officers who will be working on polling day vote early here they are queuing to costly votes five years ago opposition parties are concerned that this time postal voting is being done inside police stations and some offices will be intimidated into voting for the rulings on the party. mood in sync with that in that seemed to me brilliant and still does so we could cause from this early is mainly in the morning by or phish shows with screaming we're isn't. about what
9:33 pm
they're seeing has really tried to make them do. a spokesman from the independent electoral commission initially told state media no voting was taking place later a senior police officer confirmed some of them are that confusion helps explain why some opposition leaders doubt the credibility of election organizers the police say the opposition allegations are not true therefore due process is being done in a very secretive mina there is no officer that has been told to fourteen a friend of another officer that's absolute rubbish that's absolutely motive. we we we we are what it literate police officers for want information. they come and sit in front of. that voting day at the end of the month will
9:34 pm
be the first without deposed president robert mugabe the electoral commission says four thousand police officers have applied to vote by post commission staff insist no officer would be forced to use the system and if they want to go to polling stations they are free to do so some analysts say irregularities in the run up to the polls aren't addressed so that all parties are satisfied the election results would likely be disputed. al-jazeera had. the u.s. secretary of state is in mexico to meet the country's new president with immigration and trade likely to dominate the agenda rising crime in mexico is also likely to be discussed a problem that many blame on u.s. policy and latin america editor lucien human reports. oh since previous bannock times to people has functioned as an enormous open air market in the heart of what is now mexico city it's long been the place to buy
9:35 pm
cheap goods some stolen some pirated but these days when people say you can find anything here they mean drugs and want to magic weapons. it's an open secret we don't dare go out after dark and it's scary to me is because it's more dangerous in the deep inside this market assault rifles and guns are being poured in sold by to rival criminal gangs each with the support of a different transnational drug cartel and as the trip war between them escalates sold to have the violence and the fear that many of hoped would not reach mexico's capital mexico points the finger at the u.s. for not doing enough to prevent an estimated two hundred thirteen thousand firearms from being smuggled into the country every year from the the norse. the impact of those guns is felt across mexico the murder rate this year is expected to surpass
9:36 pm
that of two thousand and seventeen with more than thirty thousand killings it not only underscores the power of organized crime but also explains why many undocumented mexicans trying to cross the u.s. border say they are fleeing violence. with think that the best way to tackle the immigration phenomena and the problems of security is to spur development in mexico. the president elect and that is mainly llopis of it i would want to president donald trump to understand that mexico's deteriorating security situation is a bilateral concern that requires us cooperation especially in economic investment that progress that the tone of relations with washington has changed since the election of. but former foreign minister that warns against reading anything into the overtures by the white house from playing nice doesn't do anybody any good there is no difference between a nice trump and
9:37 pm
a mean trump the substance is the same and so with mexico it's going to be very difficult because trump has been very nasty with mexico and given that history the expectations ahead of the meeting with some of the most influential members of president trump circle are not high. and you see it joins us live now from mexico city so this is the first high level meeting between the u.s. and the newly elected mexican leader what is seeking to do. hello mary and with a meeting is taking place in fact it began just a few minutes ago directly behind me at the campaign headquarters of the president elect and the. thought of just what will come out of it nobody really knows but what i can tell you is that this president a left elect who is a left winger who is a populist and who has had very very strong opinions very negative opinions about president donald trump is not expected to be as compliant as the current president
9:38 pm
and weak opinion yet had been up until very recently the key issues here are going to be security and migration and joining me to talk more about that is. an expert on security at the level thank you for joining us how feasible is it that the united states that the u.s. secretary of state and the head of homeland security who is at that meeting at this very moment can get what they want from the incoming government well i think that at this point they're going to rate to rate the points they've been handling security agenda from. i think that their main issue their main objective is to to seal corporation with the upcoming presidential administration in terms of combating migration from central americans particularly entering from mexico southern border and eventually making it to the u.s. so if they can strike some deal in terms. of central american migrants it would be
9:39 pm
a victory for the u.s. to exactly but why would. i would. call to the incoming president want to cooperate he needs something in return from the united states government doesn't he yeah definitely and i think that the fact that the secretary of the treasury is here as well points. they will follow perhaps a more political strategy of course amido has talked that he will not do and i quote him the dirty war for for the u.s. administration the dirty work meaning mass deportations of that central american migrants in mexican territory and he has talked about men took a more holistic approach about reactivating the part of mexico in order to curb migration i talked about cooperating with central american governments in order to tackle migration through economic development plans and i think he will definitely raise these issues with the u.s.
9:40 pm
representatives were clear to both countries and both presidents the president elect and president trump have said that they need each other that they want to have a cooperative good relationship to almost reset the relationship which has become so tense but they also at the greed or at least one of the conditions i understand for this meeting was that that four letter dirty word the wall not be brought into the equation and not even be discussed during this meeting is that correct yes and i think that this whole story to raise the priorities of the u.s. representatives which is mainly to seal the border to stop the flow of central american migrants in within mexico and of course the border wall in the in the in the northern border of mexico is a separate issue from now and it's a very contentious topic but it seems that at this point it will not be as they don't want this this meeting to be tense and they want to focus really on the southern border issue of migration and a lot of central american migrants the president elect has said over and over again that the only way to stop migration of wealth from central america and mexico into
9:41 pm
the u.s. and also of course the violence that pushes so many people across the border is for there to be development here and that he expects the united states to contribute to that something like the alliance for progress that president kennedy once spurred is that feasible it is feasible. effort. respect has been quite efficient and there has not been a lot of economic cooperation but the us has a greater interest now and a greater stake in really cooperating with central america and with mexico to bring about economic opportunity in order to stem down the flows of migrants and this has been one of the central complaint played such as. to really focus on on on on on reactivating economic growth in these marginalized regions and while he will be interesting to see what kind of deal they can strike they can strike some sort of economic aid flow force for southern mexico and central america well very quickly
9:42 pm
