1:02 pm
by a bus last week traffic accidents kill at least seven thousand bangladeshis every year even though the net i'm going on what we've been protesting on the roads for a few days with some of that amounts with demanding justice for those students of the college killed by a bus and we want safe roads. over the weekend the peaceful protests became violent when police tried to break up the crowds rubber bullets and tear gas or fired at demonstrators the government ordered schools and bus services to shut down bus driver say they were attacked. we stopped running our buses the students attacked and damaged our vehicles we cannot go on the roads as students who don't drive was sort of a good move by. the government trying to quell the violence by cutting internet services to cripple social media and censoring both bangladeshi and international media pro-government student groups are being accused of attacking protesters i'm
1:03 pm
not sitting on a subway i'm wondering what that's actually i mean all are feeling threatened we wanted a peaceful protest we don't want any trouble occurring around here you can grab a bullet was shot on our brothers at murtha neighborhood they were dispersed we don't one told us that they thought that the demonstrators were further incensed by a government minister who questioned why there was uproar about two deaths in bangladesh and the like of anger about thirty three dead in a bus crash in india the previous day government leaders say they're going to implement the students' demands for improved road safety but more protests are feared as both the ruling in opposition party's campaign for elections due in december paul chowder john al-jazeera. well let's look at why road safety is such a sensitive issue in bangladesh more than twenty five thousand people have been killed on its roads in the past three and a half years that's twenty people a day dying and more than sixty two thousand have been injured on the roads but
1:04 pm
joining us now via skype from darker is shade dollar alum he is a photographer and social activists so as we've been saying these protests were sparked by two teens who were killed in a road accident but is this all about road safety or is there something larger going on here very much larger this has been going on for very very long time it's not an elected government so they're not really a mandate rule but the big thing on my group was the looting of the banks you know the media you mentioned just now move out into the at this point these are if we start. to do issue you lose the disappearances the need to get protection money at all levels rivalry or all levels were actually in education it's a never ending list it's been huge. so it really is not and now and then and actually emotion and anger that will lose this particular incident. that
1:05 pm
is really the follow allowed to go through. very recently there was another very big protest about that both because the system is rigged in such a way that only be too close to the party in power. to get up and job and there is a disproportionate amount of junk going to then so death is stuck with very brutal . under pressure the prime minister reforms but then renee there's this don that's the part of the report this done by the student protests. went to a situation where they cannot control it and the prime minister had from it. to their mom. she has no credibility he's made promises before it's not.
1:06 pm
so now they don't do it but i think what we need to look at is what's happening in the streets today. help from the. to come back and students think they rode out ridiculous if not today i was in the streets there are. chasing students and the standing by watching it happen in some cases they are actually helping it out i mean i've been this morning there was a gassing and i saw the police going gang up trying to catch these on. where is these are going now will the students still miss us are walking past. their standard night so where do you think things are going to go from here because these these protests appear to have spread across the country. quite spontaneously and without any kind of central leadership here that this is part of
1:07 pm
the challenge that the government is is dealing with in that this is this is so so grassroots in in in the way that it has spread well i think the government has miscalculated it certainly felt that it was in not repression would have been there now but i think you know not in a timely fashion in this manner and they of course are approaching elections so near it yes the elections are more centered if they are they know that there is that. they will lose but they haven't got an exit plan because they've lived through for so long that they do lose they will be all apart so they have to hang on by elites and that's exactly what they're doing they're thinking on using their own might or the system plus. this. good to speak with. joining us there from. war correspondent tanveer chadri joins us now
1:08 pm
from the time to update us with what's happening there at the moment. well a very volatile and tense situation in the city right now we have reports of clashes in farmgate in. procession of students were coming from down monday towards that place called elephant road now they were stopped by the police and were confronted by the supporters of the ruling party this was last about like fifteen minutes ago now there was a clash in the area between police and the pro-government supporters at least five journalists right in your day were big and among them were eight before the journalists and others were from the local media now even on yesterday during the clash at least six journalists were beaten up including a female journalist from the leading english daily the daily star she was even more or less that according to the newspaper report this is making the journalists very
1:09 pm
scared you know because they're there to do their job and they're getting beaten up in front of the police by what they say is the ruling party supporter we have no way to confirm that and i spoke to some ruling party supporters who brought out a procession in the dr university campus one of their leader told me that look we when i've got one who attacked us yesterday it was not just students who attacked our office and we just confronted them and he said many of the things you are seeing in the first media photo shop i had and was there more than that so they had their own version of course there are some items there are possibly big question in the social media but the city right now what was a social movement against traffic safety is more and more turning out to be a political taking a political dimension rather you know and situation in some part of the city as of now it's still tense you can see behind me a very busy road there's hardly that much traffic people are not getting out and there is a sort of
1:10 pm
a critical view in the street i talked to some people that said these are kids that they shouldn't have been not by police or the pro-government supporters because they weren't doing anything that was political they didn't make any political slogan or anything like that even though the government said that it was again politicized by the opposition party and they were manipulating the movement. tanveer thank you tanveer chadri in the uk of course now venezuela's president nicolas maduro is accusing colombia and a group of finance years in the us of attempting to assassinate him we do know we're speaking at a military parade in the capital caracas when an explosion interrupted the event he was not hurt but seven security people were mike hanna reports there's a live broadcast of the ceremony on national television the camera begins to shake and president maduro looks into the air as explosions sound before the feed is cut soldiers who had been on parade are seeing the in panic number reported to be
1:11 pm
injured in the blasts though as there are only investigation as evidence that shows those who had entered the constitution the figo are doing his will in the public. a group calling itself the last day for and their last claimed responsibility in a series of tweets this one with the phrase time is running out a few hours after the attack president maduro addressed the nation saying right wing groups within the country were responsible but also accusing the colombian president one manual son course of involvement in looking for a mark and i have to inform you that some of those who carried out the attack against me today have already been apprehended and they are now being processed in not doing all the they tried to assassinate me and i have no doubt that everything points to the right the venezuelan ultra right in alliance with the colombian ultra right and let the name of one manuel santos is behind this attempt of president maduro playing to victory in the elections earlier this year but his political
1:12 pm
opponents insisted the process was rigged many venezuelans hold him accountable for a major economic collapse that could see the inflation rate hit one million percent by the end of the year. mike hanna zero. three soldiers serving with the nato force in afghanistan have been killed in a suicide attack one u.s. and two afghan soldiers have also been injured the attackers struck in part of one province north of kabul mashallah ballasts is live for us now from kabul so shallow what more do we know about what happened here. with so much attack happened around six o'clock this morning and i can tell you that there is still a lot of action many hours later we've seen just in the last five minutes standing here at a dozen helicopters leaving from the u.s. u.s. space here in kabul going up to bed which is about sixty kilometers north which is right where near this attack happened blackhawks chinooks heading up the air to
1:13 pm
assist now we understand that three nato soldiers were killed one u.s. soldier who was wounded and two afghan soldiers who were wounded in a suicide bombing they were doing a foot patrol around sunrise just outside of the provincial capital known as cherry when the suicide bomber struck the taliban put out a release about this earlier this morning claiming responsibility saying it happened around six it was their guy and then they coast and u.s. casualties we made calls on this at the time but there was some skepticism around it because the taliban has been spamming through the through the website through twitter to media putting out statements in the last forty eight hour was claiming a lot of attacks against nato and u.s. soldiers in western herat province and we saw the attack happen today in pa one province saying that they were causing casualties every time we call nature on this they seem to know it's simply not true this is propaganda and to this morning's
1:14 pm
attack location i don't know if you can hear the helicopter behind me but then the location of bag room is the biggest military base in afghanistan with the u.s. and the seven within ten kilometers all that this morning nato has wound down its combat operations here it did so in twenty four tane but the still sixteen thousand troops in the country helping afghan soldiers mentoring them supporting them that's what they were doing this morning and it with these nato troops are here on a combat mission and support mission they still suffering casualties we've had three this year and the last time three nato soldiers were killed was in june. continues to be a very volatile situation there for the money shot of dallas live for us in kabul. we got plenty more ahead on this news out a plan syrian government assault on the country's last a rebel held province is put on hold. how the unrest in nicaragua is creating a refugee crisis in neighboring countries. and later in sport tiger woods falls
1:15 pm
behind in ohio all the details coming up. so all are still ahead but first an israeli drone strike has targeted palestinians launching incendiary balloons into israel from the north of gaza gaza's ministry of health says four palestinians have been injured and we were israel's cabinet is meeting in west jerusalem to talk about the controversial nation state law the druze community led a huge rally against the law on saturday and many are angry that it defines israel as a jewish state and downgrades the arabic language and the calling for the bill to be revoked reaching a deal with the hamas leadership in gaza is also high on the agenda anderson is joins me live now from west jerusalem so andrew first of all any response yet from
1:16 pm
the cabinet to last night's demonstrations. no word yet from his cabinet but there was a statement from benjamin netanyahu ahead of the cabinet session starting a couple of hours ago in which he stated that really without the national law would be possible to impossible to insure for decades the future of israel as a jewish state now he said that many times before but then he gets on to the druze issue and that was a really big demonstration it surprised a lot of people and when you see it from above you realize that tens of thousands possibly more than tens of thousands crowding out that square all around he said this about the druze we will establish today a special ministerial committee the vance's the relationship and the commitments what does that mean well no one knows has been
1:17 pm
a haze put over any possible concessions from the government to minority communities and the druze are probably the most angry right now because they serve in the military as a matter of mandatory responsibility that is some say their own fault because they agreed to it unlike palestinian israelis they have to serve in the military and they are there's a growing number who are resisting it so the question now is will these protests get bigger that's remains to be seen there will be another one next week and there will be demonstrations apparently outside the knesset when members resume from their summer recess of effectively an emergency basis to discuss this whole issue they can't make decisions in that session though according to the parliamentary law so where do we go from here it's wait and watch and on the other story that we
1:18 pm
mentioned there will that will the cabinet discuss the negotiations for a long term cease fire deal with hamas in gaza. no what we're going to get is as a security cabinet that's going to convene later on sunday to discuss this a long term deal you mention of course the united nations special envoy in nicholai and lot of has been really busy trying to get some momentum on these talks with with hamas and also with the egyptians involved now what is on the table isn't confirmed we've got a number of issues being speculated over but there is has to be said on the garza side and the egyptian side some optimism it seems that this deal could be a go or so a lot of optimism there whether the israelis see it that way we may hear later on sunday when this security cabinet finishes andrew thanks very much now
1:19 pm
unrest is continuing in ethiopia where government forces moved in to arrest regional leaders in the somali region located in the east of the country federal troops took control of the capital of that region jigger after being met with resistance by paramilitary forces loyal to the local government reports of looting rioting and the burning of churches in the province has been plagued by violence for thirty years after a bid for session in the region mohammed atta is in djibouti. there is a tense standoff in the city of to kick up a couple of the somali region of ethiopia federal troops continue to our lives some of them by planes and friday residents of the city was surprised to see federal troops rolling into the city with tongues and at this point the
1:20 pm
local or special police exchanged fire with the federal troops and these created some confusion in which. began something that's so the entire market of your looted to churches and up to fifty people losing their lives the government in a disservice by justifying why it sends the troops saying that there was a rift between the regional administration and the federal government and that there were plans by the regional administration to announce a separation. from the rest of ethiopia something that course outrightly denied by the regional president mahmoud. now european aircraft manufacturers are rushing to deliver airliners to iran before u.s. sanctions are reimposed on monday thirteen of the twenty a.t.r. planes bought from the franco italian company have landed in iran iranian leaders
1:21 pm
say the sanctions are endangering lives by blocking new aircraft as well as spare parts for its aging fleet iran signed a five hundred thirty six million dollars deal with a.t.r. airbus and boeing of already pulled out of iran during the ninety day wind down period after donald trump pulled out of the iran nuclear deal iran air was planning to buy thirty eight billion dollars worth of new jets from them joins us now from tehran so zain how significant was this delivery given that it's now one day before this pullout to the u.s. and the same sions go into place. well anytime something like this happens it is a it is a cause for celebration in iran it's certainly a positive step that these five new planes have been delivered today there were
1:22 pm
officials on the tarmac to greet these planes they flew in with millions of dollars in spare parts no doubt officials preparing for the worst expecting that they may not be able to get cars to keep these planes in the air as u.s. sanctions move forward so it is a positive step but it's a baby step in the grand scheme of things these five planes bring the total a.t.r. is delivered to thirteen out of twenty planes that had been that the deal had had signed for when iranian officials here signed up to buy planes from me and in the broader scope where you spoke about that deal with airbus and boeing thirty nine billion dollars for two hundred plus planes out of those airbus has only been able to deliver three so a drop in the bucket towards what iranian officials were hoping to do to modernize civilian air travel in this country after the twenty fifty nuclear deal and the reason they wanted to do that is pretty simple air travel in iran is dangerous the fleets are old since one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and u.s.
1:23 pm
sanctions have been going on since then. air and other airlines here big and small have been unable to purchase aircraft to modernize their fleet so we've seen hundreds of people dying in accidents over the decades and the other aspect of it was it was a way for the sanctions the benefit of this deal that the government had had said was the light at the end of the tunnel for the people economically and in terms of their lives it was a tangible and visible way to bring change via the nuclear deal directly to civilian people to iranians by modernizing civilian air travel and that simply has not happened and so that's just another nagging complaint that the iranian people have of the government have of the impact of u.s. sanctions same. our leading syrian scientist reportedly involved in missile development has been killed in an explosion as easy as a spear and his driver died in the blast near outside hanna in two thousand and

1:25 pm
million people at least half displaced from other rebel areas after so-called surrender deals. but the syrian government's ally russia appears to be giving turkey a chance to what it called stabilize the problems turkey is being asked to fulfill agreed commitments in the so-called fast enough process. accepting responsibility for the situation. expected to fight terrorists. russia says turkey was supposed to expel or dissolved the heat a sham the group formerly known as el nostra as well as what our city in the syrian branch of al qaida those fighters are designated as terrorists by the international community they are powerful and they have in the past we checked with ultimatums to disband. lenders all turkey wants to avoid military action so
1:26 pm
it's using the threat of military action to force will start to disband the announcement that see a rebel groups are united under one command is an example. part of it live lies on the border with turkey which wants to avoid any military offensive that would cause human suffering further displacement and the collapse of the ass and a process. front war especially in the syria area so i. started. for months now members of the so-called radical groups have been targeted in unclaimed attacks that some link to a campaign to eliminate the province from foreign fighters disagreements over at liberty turkey and russia were evident during talks on syria and such the province was not mentioned in the final statement it live was mentioned in a separate statement issued by turkey's foreign ministry emphasizing that the
1:27 pm
province's status as a deescalation zone must be preserved. turkey's military presence won't deter campaigns on the fringes of it live that are aimed at opening highways linking government controlled cities and preventing attacks on the russian and syrian military. that is likely what syria and boy meant when he said there are no plans for a large scale assault on for now russia and turkey still need each other but this time around government leaders and given limited time to deliver. explains why. a military offensive in it lip would be a pivotal moment in the seven year conflict one that may have grave humanitarian and regional consequences the syrian opposition stronghold is one of the four deescalation zones which included eastern ghouta part of homes and areas in the
1:28 pm
southwestern provinces of there are and. the deed was negotiated last year to stop violence and protect civilians but since january this year the syrian regime in plate in violation of that agreement has captured three of them but no leaves this last significant enclave of armed opposition that goes up against president bashar assad's regime capturing it live would put almost seventy five percent of the country under government control but government forces would have to fight a coalition of key rebel factions with reportedly an estimated seventy thousand fighters in order to achieve that goal it live is also strategically important it shares a border with the government stronghold like archaea home to the biggest russian military airbase in the country and the m five highway which is the country's main north south artery collecting turkey syria and jordan runs flight through the province it look also shares
1:29 pm
a border with turkey which is called any offensive there a red line turkey has encircled the province with twelve points along the front lines a military escalation it live would be catastrophic for its population within half of which are internally displaced making the biggest cluster of the statement counts in the world or in a few moments we'll have the weather with richard but still ahead on al-jazeera. tension in indian administered kashmir a day before a court judgment could alter the region's special status. plus he might be in prison but one of brazil's most popular former presidents lula da silva has been nominated to run for office again. and later in sport the young guns take over the tennis tour in washington details coming up.

1:34 pm
this is quite a complicated story isn't it just to set the scene for us. of what happened yesterday and what's behind it. thanks for having me yes indeed this is a very complicated history and story but what happened yesterday. the events that led to yesterday's intervention by the federal government police force and an army force begun actually unfolding on wednesday and thursday when so much i mean every time a state government and police force the paramilitary police force what we call them came to drain to another neighboring city to disrupt meeting by elders who have been denouncing the human rights abuses of the region not government. in what we call the presidents and so they have sent to disrupt this meeting to do a demo and that led to an increase in military activity in that region by the
1:35 pm
federal police also leading to the bridge to a city administration which is a chartered city to declare. military command post to protect the meeting and also the city so that events start unfolding on wednesday and thursday leading into the military the federal military to be deployed in and around yesterday. and it's uncertain of the moment as to how the situation may develop in the next few years next few days rather but what does the deployment of the of the ethiopian military in that region mean. well you know if you talk to the civilians on the ground those who are not to the region government i. think they pretty much went the protection of the federal government army because that the paramilitary discretion paramilitary force that was unconstitutional he established in two thousand and eight and was you know handed over to the region that the government there are very
1:36 pm
much known for the way to spread human rights abuses so people are not feeling safe under the released bad sections of these paramilitary so the civilians particularly from other ethnic groups very much welcome the intervention of the federal government this of course when you look at it persecution only people are decrying that this is against the constitution and trespasses the fiddle arrangement of the constitution so it is a very delicate balance that the federal government has to do in negotiating peace peace for settlement out of these crimes mike what i've seen what options at this point does does the government in at this abba have to contain the situation. well there is no other option you know discouraging the military confrontation we're hearing now that the president of the original state has been surrounded since system day and he said presidential palace first cry of the federal army and no
1:37 pm
overnight they have forcibly and clearly he has been deploying he's ordered early start me so this might potentially lead into and this is very confrontational so i think the federal government has to resort into negotiations bring all stakeholders including the or end their lives if they're all going to national liberation front which has a huge stake in peace and security issues and that's region and also you know the regional government despite the president being abused i sort accused of human right abuses they have to negotiate with the regional administration with people who are willing to peaceful a sense of the situation you know the federal government cannot continue confronting militarily and cannot bring in a military solution to this very delicate situation certainly is and we appreciate you sharing lights on it for us said ali joining us there in frankfurt thanks so much for being with us thanks for. our courts in zimbabwe have denied bail to
