5:00 am
the senator's son robert kennedy jr route to the attorney general asking for new evidence to be considered in the case. al-jazeera has now examined the different theories about the assassination and the reasons behind calls for a new investigation into the conviction of her han nearly fifty years ago. quite bright a lot of evidence was destroyed a lot of evidence was scandalous or endless. in the case that they were it in any murder case to destroy evidence the way they. earth are and.
5:01 am
you know i can't speak for the l.a.p.d. and why you know they didn't do a better job investigating the case why they destroyed some evidence i don't know. all the evidence was destroyed after the trial but they had a legal obligation to save the evidence because sir hand was going to file an appeal on his attorney's work so that evidence under the law should have been preserved for the next for the appeal. and according to the l.a. police department they just didn't have the space to store it. several commentators and witnesses have said the l.a.p.d. lost or he'd evidence or that there was a second gunman. books have been written and different conspiracy theories examined . documents have gone missing and people have taught. taking their evidence with
5:02 am
them. as iraq has gone back to the events of the fifth of june nine hundred sixty eight and you heard from eyewitnesses and from journalists who've looked into the games for ten years. it's also examined audio and visual evidence which may not have been giving enough credence at the time. it's not possible to return to the actual scene of the crime. the ambassador hotel was demolished in two thousand and six and the robert f. kennedy community schools opens on the site in twenty ten. the schools and memorials now stand near where robert kennedy was assassinated on the evening of the fifth of june nine hundred sixty. eight just won the primary election to be the california democratic party's
5:03 am
nomination for a u.s. president. there was a last minute decision to take a back route out from the main hall through a small kitchen where he was shocked. i saw certain hand prior to senator coming down. but i first saw it i thought it was another dishwasher. that person. didn't seem unusual to me. he didn't appear out of the ordinary he was just start making small talk with me asking me how long do you think this speech is going to last is it almost over and i just said i don't know.
5:04 am
night thanks to all of you it out on to chicago and he finished his speech i could hear the applause and then i saw him and his entourage began walking toward me. the first time i saw us are hand as we entered the room. where there was a tray stacker here which was sixty eight inches above the ground search ham was on a very tall person so he was standing on top of that there were a bunch of trays but he could still stand on it so he could see above everybody and could see as the center was progressing. bob was moving on at that point so i was about six feet behind. the senator would have been to my left and i would have been almost parallel to him.
5:05 am
walking toward the cooling a room. i was mainly probably about two steps ahead of senator kennedy at that time . i was standing literally within three feet of this senator carl was pulling senator kennedy. i believe by his left hand which made it awkward for the senator because he was shaking with his right hand and curl was grabbing his left pulling in this way vincent di pietro was very near to kennedy when he was shot but his testimony differs from the other eyewitnesses so bob were shaking hands and after after he came in i followed him and he started shaking hands with his hooper as and and. and wong romero romero was a hotel worker in the crush of people around kennedy as he moved through the kitchen i was able to shake his hand they need to get out of
5:06 am
a step forward to go step by step and i have. and i saw certain hand with the gun in his hand coming up around karl you for and as he came up he was his hand was outstretched totally outstretched. eyewitnesses say that sirhan raised his right hand holding an eye for johnson today twenty two caliber revolver pointed at kennedy the césar han fired two shots. when i heard the first pop. shot which i believe was
5:07 am
a shot the first i thought was a firecracker i turned toward my left at that point i saw her hands her hand immediately to my left no one between he and myself holding a gun shooting into the crowd the crowd of people shooting into the direction where i last seen senator kennedy. carl euchre is a terrific witness he was there closest of anybody he said sir hand came the gun was close to his face hand got two shots off and he grabbed him and put the hand down and steam table inserted and continued to fire the gun. version was bang bang and then and then i looked back over there and there were there were a commotion going on. and then i heard the other the rest of the show. and that's when witnesses
5:08 am
told the place we heard two shots a pause and then a flurry of shots. and that's pretty much what i heard too. and ivor johnson today at twenty two can hold up to eight bullets so after firing the first two shots sirhan had six left. was the in the. the in and robot like pulling the trigger until he fired the other six shots but he had no control over the bullets went over us. after the shooting he was surrounded by about twenty people that were trying to kill him. and that's why i mean he was in custody by all these guys until the police arrived.
5:09 am
back and then i custody now that we do not know who he is he had no identification he refuses to make a statement of any kind he does speak and understand english. legality. is in our custody is a twenty just caliber eight shot and i eight shot and according to the any p.d. report one bullet went through kennedy's coat without penetrating his body it scratched old charades head as he stood right behind kennedy the police found that put it at the crime scene i got shot. not knowing i'd been shot i thought i was being electrocuted too as she was shaking when i went down and so i didn't see bob get shot got shot. actually he didn't at that point. another bullet hit robert kennedy behind his right ear and that was the fetal shot. one more
5:10 am
hit him under his right armpit and exited through the top of his shoulder that put energy to hit the ceiling but the police never found it. and forced bullet holes so hit kennedy under his right armpit and settled in his spine and under his neck so that was four bullets serhiy one had four more remaining. a fifth bullet head ira goldstein in his left side and large there. and a sixth bullet hit early installed in his left leg. and a seventh bullet hit william weisel in the stomach and remained there. according to the police reports the eighth and final bullet was fired at the ceiling bouncing
5:11 am
back and hitting elizabeth evans in the head. the police found the sport as well. first two bullets shooting of missing kennedy sure amy the one two and going westward to goldstein two shots one through his pant leg and want into his but one and strolls leg and one into evan's forehead that's seven bullets. out of a shot revolver how could he have shot robert kelly four times. on top of charades point evidence offered by two f.b.i. investigators william bailey and duwayne wilford needs taking into account. bailey and wolf are attended the crime scene as soon as the assassination took place. they discovered two more bullets that were not mentioned in the l.a.p.d. report. the next day william barely an f.b.i.
5:12 am
agent at the scene in front is on the front page of all the newspapers pointing at a door frame in one thousand seven hundred sixty given a sworn statement that he saw two bullet holes in that door frame. if a second gun is not firing there cannot be any bullet holes in the wooden door frames so the police take those door frames down and they bring them to the police station to do work on them turns out there too many of these bullets represent too many bullets strands gun holds it bullets more recent forensic analysis also supports the view that more bullets were fired at the scene than serhiy could have had in his gun but the l.a.p.d. does not appear to have taken that on board then in two thousand and five further evidence. kennedy's victory speech in the main hall of the hotel was recorded by
5:13 am
a polish journalist studies laughed brzezinski when kennedy's group took that back route out brzezinski followed them but inadvertently carried on recording. this distorted audio was recorded just outside the kitchen. it's a very poor quality recording which meant for many years people didn't really analyze it properly so it was only when phil van praag came along and start analyzing in two thousand and five that you know he made a number of very interesting discoveries. the most important of which were there are thirteen shot sounds on the recording. and there were two instances of double shots which means two shots fired so close together they cannot come from the same . was.
5:14 am
the only way going to fly is that there was a second gunman in a position behind get a word that the prosecution never proved that saran was behind kennedy or is able to shoot him point blank. thomas knew gucci was the chief medical examiner and coroner for los angeles county and performed the autopsy on robert kennedy he submitted a detailed report on the bullets that hit kennedy this is that report and the evidence he gave in court. gunshot wound number one direction right to left slightly back to front up or gunshot wound number two entry right accelerator region direction right to left back to front up or gunshot wound number three direction right to left back to front of the autopsy report is probably the most decisive evidence that sir am physically could not shocked senate they've got three
5:15 am
shots into the senator one shot went through his shoulder pad. all came from behind a senator at point range all shot from the right side an upward angle between thirty and thirty five degrees. which meant that the shooter was actually dealing down behind robert kennedy. when he was firing his gun. however none of the eyewitnesses said that sirhan was low down. furthermore thomas' new report said that the muzzle of the gun that fired the shot that killed kennedy was a maximum of three inches or seven centimeters away from him. at how their burn rate notes so your viewers understand what powder burns
5:16 am
ranges it means the gun was pressed strongly up against either the body or in case of the fatal shot. yes and bob an inch behind the ear karl euchre he said the saucer hand coming out came very close to him and that gun sir had a gun and was two feet from kennedy knots or had two feet but sir handgun being two feet and that was confirmed by edmund a's in another of system maitre d. who was right behind them at that point. so there were different i would use a count of where's her hand was when he shot kennedy his distance from the senator the number of bullets fired and the coroner's report well you did you choose wrong or the eyewitnesses that said it was two feet away or and yet more evidence emerged
5:17 am
to cast doubt on the scene officer hands conviction and then bullets a swapped and then evidence was destroyed. i.e. you can't make up something like this. as migrants seek sanctuary on its shows the e.u. must choose rescue or deterrence. and the immigration government has allied with the libyan coast guard in an operation often at loggerheads with n.g.o.s trying to save lives. people in power is on board with both sides rescue at sea announces era. it really is the international perspective that sets al-jazeera arts other news outlets beyond first and says about three hours adding up on the plates of power outages means journalism is about public service and making
5:18 am
a difference in people's lives i'm amazed every day by reporting on al-jazeera and the places that my colleagues go it inspires me to take a different approach to how i report news you are. getting to the heart of the matter how can you be a refugee after you while it borders between five safe countries facing new realities the brain starts from the very beginning of. providing context housing is not just about four walls and a roof hear their story and talk to al-jazeera. i know i'm maryam namazie in london a quick look at headlines now palestinian armed groups including a massive announced a cease fire with israel after an escalation in violence threaten to descend into
5:19 am
full blown war they issued a joint statement promising to abide by the egyptian brokered truce as long as israel does the same it brings to an end days of cross border violence which still seven palestinians killed in israeli strikes and more than four hundred rockets launched into israel stephanie decker has mall racine residents of southern israel the border communities particularly as drop out protesting on the streets tonight they're blocking roads they're burning tires there's around three to four hundred people there at the moment and they're saying that this cease fire is not they don't agree with it they don't think the bigger issues have been addressed particular also because of that intense rocket fire that happened over the last twenty four hours or so hit various homes the images on israeli television that were being broadcast yesterday something that we haven't seen for years so there's a lot of anger and i think that also indicates the pressures on the israeli prime minister. have been new developments in the case of mudded saudi journalist jamal
5:20 am
khashoggi a turkish newspaper is published extra images of the suitcases belonging to the saudi hit squad which carried out the killing in istanbul last month it comes as white house national security adviser john bolton bolton suggested apparent auto recordings do not link the saudi crown prince to the crime. after months of negotiations the united kingdom and european union a finally reached a framework agreement a backset cabinet ministers have been arriving at downing street to see me whether being briefed one to one by prime minister to resign may all the contents of the deal but it will still need political approval on both the british and european sides should supremes court has overruled the president's bid to dissolve parliament and hold snap elections in january this is the latest twist in a power struggle that began in my free palace are saying a sacked the prime minister and replaced him with the form of president mahinda rajapaksa and the united nations envoy for libya says gen holy father is committed
5:21 am
to a un action plan to end seven years of fighting it because rival leaders and other foreign powers endorsed the plan after a two day conference in sicily aimed at stabilizing the north african country you're up to date with all of our top stories but i'll have more on everything for you in the news hour that's coming up in twenty five minutes time now al jazeera world continues. senator robert kennedy was fatally shot on the fifth of june one thousand nine hundred sixty eight after winning the california nomination to be the democratic candidate for president. a jordanian palestinian said hansei hahn was tried and jailed for his murder but since the nineteen seventies there have been calls for a new investigation based on differing eyewitness accounts the number of shots fired and distance of some han from kennedy when he fired. there seem to be
5:22 am
particular discrepancies between eyewitness vincent de pierre a steady money and the report of los angeles county medical examiner and coroner thomas new gucci the gun itself was maybe three or four inches from the head. but certainly was about three approximately three feet away i mean yeah i didn't measure them but it was an estimate but the court record a vincent de pierre steps to movie sets i saw those two go off and after the second one i couldn't see because i had blood all over my face the police and a lot of witnesses it said sarhan was standing four five six feet in front of bobby kennedy and that didn't quite match up with what. we found well you than if you choose wrong or the eyewitnesses that said it was two feet away or. back. what. movie cameras captured scenes in the kitchen immediately after the assassination
5:23 am
but arguably the most significant pictures were taken by an amateur photographer and kennedy follower there was a of a teenager scott in york in the pantry that night he had a thirty six millimeter camera. yeah roll film in there for thirty six exposures he was taking pictures. and yard took pictures before during and after the assassination. the los angeles police the ne p.d. took his camera and film to their labs. they later returned pictures to any art but only those taken before and after the assassination. those n.r. took during the assassination we never turned what happened to those photos. why didn't defense team bastin you never asked for the number of bullets found the
5:24 am
angles they'd been shot from and yards disappearing photos all combined to cast reasonable doubt as to whether serhiy was the only gunman in their investigation the ne p.d. also reported that the type of bullets fired was compatible with their hans gun. and then they say we can prove this because the bullet and and kennedy's shoulder matched the saran gun. and they were wrong about that but there are little they were lying about that as well they say the bullet went into his head which is a fragment. tiny fragment nearly the whole bullet they say that matched the same handgun two. we saw strike on that. fragment. which is crazy because there are no ifs stray ations on that fragment
5:25 am
they can't prove it but that's what they did before the game before the jury they even lied about that whole charade lisa pease and laurie dusek all cast doubt on the police findings because they couldn't match the bullets to serve handgun the bullets were switched so that a match could be made and the problem was they couldn't ease their handgun to make matching bullets because certain gun had been given to the grand jury. and then bullets were swapped and then evidence was destroyed. i.e. can't make up something like this medical examiner thomas knew gucci was never asked to identify the bullets. he only has maintained that defeat unsought was fired at close range while most eyewitnesses setser han was further away. there is a suspicion of that was that was substituted. and that he would have revealed that
5:26 am
. at first there was a movement to try to discredit new coochie and that he did say that he had done an incompetent. autopsy well that didn't work because negotiate refused to step down and in and said he would fight them in court once they realize they're going to have a fight with the karner they switch positions and now said oh well tom the gucci said that the bullets were fired from an inch away so it must be all the witnesses that were wrong so they they switch horses in the middle of the race you know they got rid of him and he was not going to play ball their way because he's an honest man. and he call things the way he saw them. and used very very upset with the whole my view all the way the proceedings went. the. question remained as to the number of bullets fired at the scene but also as
5:27 am
to why the ne p.d. didn't question anyone other than her hand as potential suspects. the police didn't follow any of the leads that would point to a second gun no one has seen the second shooter we have no eyewitnesses for that how is that possible right there close space everybody there all these eyewitnesses that are so reliable when it comes to describing what syrian did suddenly fail to be reliable for the second shooter who was right there two inches away from him. everyone missed that. thank you gene caesar was on the door he was on different doors but right before the shooting he was on the them at the door leading into the kitchen pantry area he followed kennedy ended with us dot supposed to do it was against orders from from a person who. was supervising
5:28 am
a guard for the for the for the hotel he was supposed to stay away one as a security guard who was standing behind senator kennedy to his right which is where the shots came from and he did have his gun drawn that night and he also did own a twenty two caliber pistol with the same rifle in character a successor pan's gun. many researchers believe that the famed caesar shot kennedy he was certainly in the right position he was close enough so i don't think that he he shot the senator but i think he might have seen something he has been the traditional suspect i'm not convinced that he was the gunman but. it certainly is worth scrutiny. to other figures that were seen in or near the kitchen one michael wayne was initially detained but then released. he was later seen leaving the hotel with
5:29 am
a girl wearing epoca doctress. the other suspect is a tall or a dark skinned man who resembles her hand in some respects but was taller than he was who was seen in the pantry and then seen in the pantry with a gun and earlier it's been in the pantry and this search hand in this man we're looking at each other. that man was seen with a gun and there's at least one witness that said he saw that man shooting a kennedy from behind and. that man was seen running from the pantry with a gun and then was seen running away with the girl the polka dot dress down the stairs and out through the parking. lot was the girl in the polka dot dress kennedy campaign worker valerie schultz or elaine whose husband cleaned to have worked for the cia. you have sandy serrano who saw the polka dot dress
5:30 am
girl and this guy coming down the stairways and the girl in the polka dot dress the same we shot it we shot him and serrano looks and she goes who did you shoot and she said we shot senator kennedy and runs off into the darkness of the back side of the hotel. these people knew kennedy had been shot before anyone around them had known kennedy had been shot. ok to put it out address the woman in a poke at address. and any other anomaly you want to find in any particular event of of epic proportions like this somebody famous a big political event like an assassination there are going to be lots of little anomalies that become pregnant with meaning because we're looking for something meaningful and you can always find something that sticks out that no one knows has any of it was that person the woman in the poke it out who knows who knows the prep
5:31 am
probably nothing. this woman spent the day with a local chemical sense man who was at the ambassador to sell them chemicals for the hotel. she was afraid and she was looking for help for somebody to help her get a passport to get out of the country the next day she predicted the killing with accuracy she said they're going to take care of mr kennedy tonight the winning reception. as a prediction hours before the b. van occurred. at esperanza hearing in march twenty seventh sarah has her hands account of events
5:32 am
was generally quite clear until the actual moment of the shooting. and i remember wanting to agree to get some coffee because i just to make sure that when i brought all that up there's little chairs that i could so remember that they are good yes adamant remember i want to get some coffee get out and she yes it will remember that i did it i remember being. being. tackled by people very very almost choked me to death. and fortunately here it was this is the way to live and write it i didn't see bobby kennedy then i didn't know what was transpiring because they had me on the table and i think that i came to or be cared began to to to to feel guilty sense what was going on so i would use that when needed they were choking you know and they would say don't kill it or something so you heard that and i've learned some some words like they're ok and wishing they
5:33 am
could happen i didn't i didn't i didn't want them. illegitimately did not remember those critical moments. twenty leavening sirhan sirhan defense team consulted hypnosis. his expert dr daniel p. brown to test the theory that he may have been hypnotized to carry out the kennedy assassination. we had bought the brown from orange and over seventy hours with sir he is one of the world's leading experts on a mind control and conditioning and that ron after all is all i'm with sir that is of the mind that he was clearly program.
5:34 am
about ten five ten percent of the population is just naturally highly hypnotic they can enter trance states block out feelings and so he clearly was one of these people. sirhan sirhan defense team use the hypnosis theory as the basis of his final federal appeal in twenty thirteen. but the court rejected the appeal with the judge calling the psychological test results quote of negligible weight he said they were intriguing but fell short of the quote demonstrating that her hon was subjected to mind control. one other detail of the sassy nation should not be overlooked the last minute decision to change the route taken by kennedy out of the main hall. he was asked to
5:35 am
go to the press room through the back kitchen but who knew about the change of plan did so hon. i don't know how how why at how anybody knew that because of that he said. nobody knew what. the plan it was says change that the last minute. it's important to try to understand all the facts related to what you're going to try and is it was it just a coincidence that it would i think not. only because coincidences that lead to assassinations of this sort are or my view very suspect. who made that decision and why. what explains her han's presence
5:36 am
there. was there enough security was so hard working with another individual there were a lot of election parties that night i mean went to one of them at a different location and then you know one stop party was finished you know somebody there told them hey there's a big party that you want to do you want to check it out so he went down there to check it out. and then he went back to his car apparently he got his gun and he went back in search of coffee today how was syrian able to get into the pantry with a gun that's an excellent question because there were two a scarves one at each end who were supposed to be making sure that only people who were credential with kenedy credentials were allowed into the kitchen so how did surveying get past them well you know the obvious answer is maybe he had helpers maybe there was somebody who took him and said he's with me maybe it was somebody with a p t one o nine sirhan sirhan defense attorney was the los angeles criminal lawyer grant b cooper. the basis of the defense case that cooper argued was that her husband had
5:37 am
committed the crime because he was mentally ill and that he had acted alone. cooper was criticized at the time for the way he dealt with her hands personal writings being used by the prosecution in court. that notebook should not have been allowed into evidence at the trial because it was taken from the house without a search warrant and the defense team never raised that issue they should have hired a private handwriting expert to look into that. there have been many obstacles in the way mainly his own defense counsel frankly early of early on grant cooper would greet all the projects before this is a scandal how this could be allowed to proceed. in a court of law is a scandal but it did was his lawyer told the talk to the jury right at the outset
5:38 am
we're not going to try to prove his innocence we believe he's guilty this is the feds of really we just what we're here to try to save his life sirhan sirhan is defense faced other problems. there have been suggestions that pressure was put on some eyewitnesses to change their stories as in the case of sandra serrano. this audio recording was released long after the trial along with other documents as late as nine hundred eighty eight.
5:39 am
she just reported to police what she saw and yet they treated her like a criminal after weeks of bullying or finally she gave up and said i don't know what i saw i testified under oath and online check her chest and i saw the private address and he said now you never saw the script and he kept drilling it's my head that i was wrong that i didn't seen that i didn't seem what i was off to the the light checked he turned it off and you saying look he didn't see the girl in the polka dot dress. why he wanted me to greta that i do not know but i did see the girl with the program address which was valerie shortly which i did identify in court. they were battering deep to change the story in take in face tape of hank
5:40 am
earn and is doing these interrogation he himself is you putting words in my mouth pryor part of the problem with police investigations is they too are subject to cognitive biases they think we know who did it and we're only going to pursue this particular case we don't care about all this other stuff they narrow their focus down to like one person they think they did it and then you know so this goes in support of your case that well maybe they're ignoring you know somebody else that might have been relevant to the case yes that does happen you don't need to have everybody involved in it all you needed the one man that is controlling the investigation. because she decides who's going to be interviewed what's going to be buried what is going to be fabricated and they did it. i sympathize with sam bashara saran that he took the rap.
5:41 am
unfairly unjustly and does honestly on the bet on the part of the prosecution and that story has to be told we have a very strong case based upon not theory not conspiracies but based upon the prosecution's own hard evidence which they tried to destroy a lot of it but they some of it they didn't destroy and that's going to be useful. he should've been eligible for parole in one thousand nine hundred and he should be released he meets all the qualifications under the california brawl and we have a palestinian the sussan with all all that means to american voters and to the paula politicians who would weigh in no. would weigh their decision making in terms of whether they really want to alienate the jewish voters in america or whatever by
5:42 am
their support being seen to support a palestinian assassin i actually don't believe sir han understood the role he was playing i truly believe from years twenty five years of research that certain hand had been hypnotized by others who wanted to use him as a pawn in their plot. it's just a question of not giving up once you get involved and you see injustice prevailing you still stay on until you try to do is much as you can and some point you may have to say that's it i can do no more and james earl ray died in prison sirhan sirhan is in prison and if we're not successful then he will also die. sirhan sirhan was convicted on the seventeenth of april ninety. in sixty nine his
5:43 am
death sentence was commuted to life imprisonment three years later. defense lawyers have been trying to get him a new trial since one thousand nine hundred ninety four but have so far failed sirhan has a parole hearing every five years. this was his fourteenth in march twenty seventh and parole was denied again in twenty sixteen or. the public outpouring of grief after robert kennedy's death was a sign that they had lost a principled politician as senator from new york who cared about poverty in the south and racial segregation everywhere. even if the case is reopened the exact truth of what happened over fifty years ago may now never.

hope in the territory electricity flowing in a way not seen in years qatari money allowed in to pay at least partially civil servant salaries israeli prime minister has defended the measures saying they could lead to stability and avoid an unnecessary and costly war both sides then have much to lose from allowing this dangerous exchange to devolve into something worse but they also have domestic political pressure which can act in the opposite direction . this was a protest against the ceasefire in the border town of steroids on tuesday israeli prime minister under pressure to demonstrate he isn't ceding ground undermining israeli to terence by stepping back from war are a force at al-jazeera know how it was in southern israel. there is diplomatic editor james bays he joins me from the united nations what reaction has there been that james. well we now have scheduled in the next hour or
5:53 am
so a u.n. security council meeting on garza and the situation in garceau they're currently in session talking about the democratic republic of the congo they have added on the end of their afternoon activities a brief discussion on garza that will be behind closed doors ahead of that meeting in the last half hour the israeli ambassador danny down on has been speaking to reporters there is talk of a cease fire but he is not talking about a cease fire when he talks to reporters he says that he's unhappy with the way some of the security council are calling on restraint on both sides he says there are not both sides in this there is only one side's view that matters and that is israel and israel's view is that hamas is firing a very large number of rockets i asked him about how this all started that elite
5:54 am
special forces israeli raid into garza and said could he please explain what was the mission of that particular unit he didn't answer the question this is what he said we take action to protect our people and we continue to do that unfortunately danger there you are the mouth vision that they continue to dig tunnels they continue to think about ways to attack israel and we will continue to take any measure measure necessary to protect our people regarding that the future of our porch is very clear if you do not be quiet in these vell it cannot be quiet in gaza and i think the hamas leaders know exactly what are the capabilities of all the very i.d.f. and they know we can get to them even if they hide beneath tunnels and beneath hospitals. i don't expect any action from the u.n. security council there is the possibility they'll come out with some sort of
5:55 am
statement but that is difficult i think certainly this meeting is taking place because kuwait and bolivia wanted a my understanding from diplomats is the u.s. didn't really want this meeting to take place and this discussion to take place at this time the u.s. but position for some time has been on the wider israeli palestinian issue is that the world needs to wait for the peace plan of the president's son in law jared cushion life to others are getting a little from frustrated that this is taking so long i asked about the question of peace plan to the french ambassador to the united nations francois the lots he replied to me i think it's a fair question but you should address it to jared cushion and our american friends all right thank you very much our diplomatic editor james bays there at the united nations well you're see michael bug is the head of international relations at regent university in london and joins us on skype from occupied east jerusalem
5:56 am
thank you very much for taking the time to speak to us the have been exchanges of fire between israel and hamas over the past few months but what we saw recently was perhaps the most intense and sustained since two thousand and fourteen does it seem as though a wider war might have been averted for now. i think if you're out of a solo it's an explosive situation because sugar typically makes a speech and unless both sides of the linguistical are issues of ending the city is billing me if with the blockade on gaza make life live with a full two million to live in gaza and ensuring there are no military action against gaza but at the same time for the hamas and islamic jihad and the child and hundreds and hundreds and look at all these little downs and then get it just i
5:57 am
think she owed it to the soul no but it can actually flare up at any moment i think the most simple thing is to roll back to negotiations or it's not at all not that i can go shares but in the next leave here is a belated nation we know in switzerland and plan to today the momentum or dynamics in egypt right to defuse this explosive situation. we know how quickly and easily tensions around gaza can lead to escalation how important not the un or all perhaps more heavy and gyptian mediation efforts in this respect. i think it's very important to see that it was on the verge of something much bigger as we salute religious occasion two thousand and nine and twelve thousand and fourteen and actually wish in forty eight hours the reach a cease fire this by declaring two sides that. accord to extremes
5:58 am
starting this sense is simple the international community intervene quickly but also to decide the little guys in there with nothing more to win so why the range full blown war it will just lead to more larger and destruction strategically both sides are actually interested in reaching a long term tools we're not talking about the said this at this moment but finding it to sing which on the other on the one hand will and still it is fighting that they work at the action incursions by the israeli soldiers but also start opening the other groups movement of papers and in open the borders step by step but to the international community must be vigilant about it because every operation especially one that go august this or two days ago can lead to the resumption of our lives and this is always the risk in the region in the absence of any
5:59 am
substantial talks. you were saying that the core issues have to be addressed perhaps the most important of those right now is the humanitarian situation in gaza but really what channel what mechanism exists. to resolve or to at least address these core issues. the must be the nation. a commission bill just understandable because mission to something must happen that two million people can leave under constant located if no access to clean water sanitation generally limited access to electricity high level of unemployment one point two million refugees one point six have to rely on so all eight only when there is that the political dish and that is the test changed and it has to change very quickly we start resulting it as long as it's it's fine bite but it is an open international
6:00 am
community accepting this is a normal situation it's up no muffled for the government decree and if this is just changing then actually we can look at all the big picture it's not only buckets that is actually dealing with the leisurely palestinian issue but as you say the humanitarian crisis that can turn briefly in the winter and disaster is too real we sense of urgency now the solutions are there because you have to be open in a way that all she want to this is a security law commodities have to come in and out more people have to move in and out and this also to do with the psychology of people that lived basically in an open air prison chauffeur we lived in it was not well thank you very much for sharing your thoughts and insight as appreciate that from legions you know that's a yes america by joining us from occupied east jerusalem thank you. kiran.

i'm. i've been further developments in the case of mad at saudi janice jamal khashoggi attack in newspapers published extra images of the suitcases belonging to the saudi his squad which carried out the caning in istanbul last month and the white house national security adviser john bolton has also suggested the audi recordings of the killing do not implicate the saudi crown prince mohammed and sound none of mine i shall has more now from outside the saudi consulate in istanbul these latest images so for example so rangers believed to have possibly been used user to subdue jamal hostile to or possibly even kill him that's falls in line with the narrative that we received as al-jazeera early on this case when we broke the news that jamal specialty was killed and it was off that he entered shortly that he was injected with something prior to his body being dismembered the show for example a taser that show a jamming device used to jam communications in the immediate area of when and where
6:02 am
it's operated as well as quote closed circuit communication devices that would make it's hard for communication between those teams to be tapped into while they are here harks have these recordings where they say there was phone calls made by modem a clip the ringleader of this assassination squad the kill squad which came here between him and the personal secretary of conference become a been some months in one of those conversations he's tells the secretary tell your boss the deed has been done on the operation has been completed obviously we haven't heard the original arabic words of all contents of those recordings but in that translation that sort of imply that your boss here is a reference to the have been some on the closest there is truly a smoking gun with regard to the implication of the defector or of saudi arabia still that starts a justice must be served in order for that sort of happen the saudis need to disclose who gave the order who is ultimately responsible for the assassination of a clue. well the u.s. state department spokesman have a now it says the u.s.
6:03 am
is committed to a swift investigation of the murder of jamal khashoggi importance of holding all of those of us involved in the killing of john jamal khashoggi accountable the secretary has spoken to the fact that the united states government is compiling some of its own data and taking a look at those facts we're getting information from a variety of sources and as any government would rule to and will take a look at all the information so i have for you on this news from london a song by searching california as authorities prepare for a rise in the death toll from the deadliest fires in the state's history donald trump's diplomacy takes a new turn as he walks the french president's approval ratings on push. and the ban on libya hosting international matches leaves them struggling to qualify for the africa cup of nations it will have that story and more later.
6:04 am
trying to supremes court has overruled the president's bid to dissolve parliament and hold snap elections in january the latest dramatic twist in a power struggle that began when my trip of a serious a in a sack the prime minister and replaced him with the former president and the rajapaksa the two hundred twenty five member parliament could meet as early as wednesday to decide which of the julian pair backs and its myth has more from colombo. this is a major blow for sri lanka's president supreme court saying that there is a case to be heard for arguments that he acted unconstitutionally in dissolving parliament and calling for new elections in january things have not been going a toll well for my for power series say you know since he fired prime minister running a single he refused to leave his office saying but was unconstitutional the president said well i've got the numbers in parliament i'll recall parliament improve our got the backing to replace shoot it seemed to never have the numbers in parliament so instead he went for this dissolution of parliament here we have an independent
6:05 am
and just judiciary. correctly interpreting the provisions and stipulations in the constitution. and abiding by all the. legal norms and traditions for more democracy justice and fairness most significantly powerman will now sit. on wednesday and m.p.'s will eventually get to vote on who they believe should be prime minister if they re endorse running a single and he says he's got the numbers and he stays in the job on the official prime minister's residence out mahinda rajapaksa who's only appointed controversially now we know at the end of october by the president and out with rajapaksa those all those cabinet ministers he appointed to take over those job. the un human rights chief says bangladesh is government should whole plan st patrick more than two thousand rang the muslims to me saying such a move would endanger their lives in
6:06 am
a statement michelle said the human rights violations committed against there were hanger in myanmar amount to the worst atrocities including crimes against humanity possibly even genocide basham they added with an almost complete lack of accountability indeed with ongoing violations returning rangar refugees to myanmar at this point effectively means throwing them back into the cycle of human rights violations that this community has been suffering for decades. jim has more now from cox is bizarre. a dire warning issued by the u.n. high commissioner for human rights michelle by chalet who in a statement on tuesday said that the return of her hindu refugees to me and more would constitute a violation of international law and would put their lives and freedom at great risk this is just one more statement of great concern this been issued by a member of the un at a very critical time here in bangladesh in the past few weeks it was announced by the government of bangladesh and the government of myanmar that possibly thousands
6:07 am
of refugees could be repatriated to me in mar on thursday nov fifteenth there is still a lot of uncertainty here as to if that will actually happen members of bangladesh's government have have told us that nobody will be forced to go that the repatriation will only be voluntary but they have also told us that they are waiting to get the assessment of the un agency for refugees in the u n h c r u n h e r of course has said in the past several days that they do not recommend that this process be rushed they are very concerned because up until now there has been no mechanism that has been created that would guarantee the safety and security of refugees once they return to me and more so that's just part of this building concern of course in the refugee community here in crocs as are we are hearing that there is a mounting sense of dread and terror that many refugees are being told their names are on the list that they could possibly be repatriated and they are very worried
6:08 am
about what that means for their futures. well anthony nelson is the director of the east asian pacific practice at the old bright stonebridge group he joins us now from washington thank you very much for taking the time to speak to us so two countries myanmar and bangladesh appear to have come up with a plan for these repatriations in the absence of any third party oversight i'm not sure if u.n.h.c.r. is going to have any involvement in this how dangerous could these. be for the rangar well there's a short term issue and a long term issue in the short term we're talking about maybe only about two thousand or so refugees out of seven hundred thousand really injured that are in bogged down the number of government is in a tricky position in terms of its internal politics on this issue because while long sun tsu treaty and other leaders recognize the extreme damage this issue has done to myanmar as reputation internationally they also know there's
6:09 am
a very large domestic constituency that would prefer the engine never returned to the country so in the short term if two thousand refugees do return the government is likely to make an effort to ensure that there is some security so they don't suffer an even greater international embarrassment but part of that effort may include limiting the religious movement keeping them tightly controlled and the real question will be in the long term what is their situation just speaking about those short term challenges i mean the rectangle have spoken of rape murder arson the un has warned that a genocide is still going on what surely no trust or confidence can be placed in the man ma government to make to ensure their safety even if it does mean their reputation is on the line we have they haven't cared about how it's affect their international reputation so far. you will you can certainly see that the real hinge or at least for the most part seemed to not believe that they will
6:10 am
be safe if they're forced to go back at least anecdotal discussions say that many many people are deeply resistant to the idea so. it's certainly a difficult and dangerous time. for the myanmar government there are different factions that may want different things aung san suu kyi side she will likely try to ensure that at least some kind of security exists for those that do elect or are able to return but there are other forces in the military and in local individuals that may have a different point of view and i ask how would she do that one of the stories we've been we've been reporting on amnesty international stripping on sung suchi of its ambassador of conscience what i mean this is already you know that has been this overwhelming sense of of disappointment and sadness that she has been essentially different to the atrocities committed by the military why do you say that she why do you suggest that she might be able to ensure their safety
6:11 am
when it appears that she doesn't have the willingness to help or perhaps even that the power or the influence to do so sure that the efforts they would take to secure their safety likely include. keeping them in a tightly secured situation controlling their movements limiting the areas that they have access to. so. the experience that they have isn't necessarily going to be a free and fair return to the country but the member government probably will be conscious of of not allowing immediate harm to come to them just because of wariness of suffering further damage to the international reputation as he nelson thank you very much for joining us. well there are signs of compromise in the ongoing conflict in libya gen twenty five to the commander of the self-styled libyan national army base in libya's east as is committed to an action plan to end

seven years of fighting and his rival fires a so raj and other foreign powers endorse the plan after a conference in sicily john hall sent us this report from parliament. the trees attended this conference on libya's future but what really matters took place among just a few for the first time in six months the country's two main power players met in the presence of their foreign backers renegade general holly for half dollar who controls libya's east is supported by egypt russia and france fires also rose heads the un and italian backed government in the capital tripoli the atmosphere was described as core deal leading u.n. envoy her son salam made to declare the conference a success more will be remembered as a milestone in the common effort. by woodward and france. have a clear path forward out of this if your way. in which the
6:13 am
country has slipped and. the measure of success here the apparent agreement of the parties and international leaders to follow a new un timeline it foresees and national conference taking place in libya to decide on a format for elections to take place by the middle of next year. we want to reassure and ensure six million libyan citizens men and women who wish to vote to decide their destiny and have stability with the united libya a stable libya looking forward to reach these goals libya is our friend we have been linked for a long time what has emerged of substance from this conference then is a new u.n. action plan that picks up where many others have failed it provides what the u.n. envoy described as a clear path forward for libya it is a pass down which the libyans themselves not the international community must lead
6:14 am
. but the timeline is tight in a resource rich country riven with often violent internal rivalries and with foreign powers backing opposite sides to serve them. rome conflicting interests the palermo conference saw no written commitments nothing signed the un envoy is clear path forwards than appears to be based on little more the trust jonah how al-jazeera palermo italy after months of negotiations the united kingdom and european union have finally reached a framework agreement for breaks it according to the office of prime minister to resign may it will still need political approval on both british and european sides but it's already facing stiff resistance from members of tourism a zone party and crucially a coalition partners the de paul brennan explains. that the prime minister needs all the support she can get at the moment and a selected group of her government ministers were brought to downing street on tuesday night to read the text of the negotiated breck's
6:15 am
a divorce deal for themselves to date six government ministers have already quit over the way bracks it has been negotiated how many of the current cabinet will choose to follow suit once the brics a term sinkin and even if cabinet unity is maintained leaked details of the draft agreement have provoked howls of outrage from both bracks its supporters and opponents in the british parliament we're going to stay in the custody of this deal we're going to stay if it to be in large parts of that of the single market and that means it's facile states we are going to for the first time in a thousand years this place this parliament will not have a say over the laws that govern this country it is a quite incredible state of affairs the problem here is the prime minister's not been negotiating in the nationalist press she's been negotiating what she thinks she can get past the cabinet but as i say given the first shambolic nature of the negotiations this is unlikely to be the right deal for britain optimistic words

6:18 am
cold recently in western russia so it can start snowing in ukraine probably spread down to remain near the following day the temp is degrees in bucharest you get rain robinson but it's getting close to you on the higher ground and then this if you watch the circulation the black sea over the next week that is going to be pretty interesting so it means temperatures in some parts of europe are coming down but still it's early and up through hungary to austria remarkably warm and still dry and not quite a stormy as it has been on the western side as his circulation just away from portugal so given that looks fairly quiet of the western med there are still showers around in morocco in the forecast so when's a bit of cloud up in algeria as well temperatures in the low twenty's the few showers we have seen running into some powell severe chips are going but the normally breeze means is only twenty three in cairo.

bringing crime they're rapists and some i assume are good people six months into his presidency white supremacists gathered in charlottesville virginia partly to celebrate trump's win and killed a counter protester the president denounce violence on both sides but you also had people that were. very five people on both sides i put a lot of this is the feet of president trump we know that some of these hate crimes were actually committed in his name in other words the perpetrators used language and ideas they took from things that donald trump said where he's demonized vulnerable populations and in the last month after trump said at political rallies he was proud to be a national and this is not violence around the country escalated to a new fervor a man professing to be a trump supporter sent a dozen pipe bombs to the president's political critics and in pittsburgh

twitter attacks on his supposedly ally french president emmanuel macron the two appeared to resolve their differences during world war one commemorations in paris this weekend but trump has now launched mcewan's approval rating and hit out once again at his plans for a european army referencing french military defeats in the two world wars joshua but has more from paris. well the response from the elisei was quite clear no comment calls off is saying that the french president would not be responding to donald trump's tweets and it's really no surprise because it was just two days ago that emanuel michael was asked about responding to another of donald trump's tweets and the french president said that he prefers to have conversations directly face to face and that he doesn't indulge in diplomacy on twitter now in terms of how these are tweets by the u.s. presidents have gone down with the wider french public well there's been some commentators who have said that this is merely the u.s.
6:31 am
president trying to get back if you will act to the french president for that speech on armistice day the centennial here in paris where. talked about nationalism in criticized it saying it was the opposite of patriotism well that was widely seen as a swipe at the u.s. president that being of the commentators who said that the u.s. president has perhaps overstepped the mark by raising the issue of german occupation in one tweet he says that parisians were speaking german before the us arrived during the world wars and for some commentators bringing up such a painful chapter in french history just for political one upmanship is a mark of poor form if you like and all of this on quite a poignant important day here in france it is a three year anniversary of the paris attacks which took place november twenty fifth the more than a hundred thirty people died and the only time

a man or marco has tweeted today has been to pay tribute to the victims. german chancellor angela merkel has supported the french president and. european union military markel as well dependence on america's. hand that your little friends and yes we've made a lot of progress in the area of structural military cooperation but in light of developments in recent years we should welcome the vision of one day establishing a real european army when it came as well in speeches like this alternately angle or merkel sets a measured tone setting out the priorities for germany and for europe as she sees them and mostly that was the case in choose those delivery to strasburg of the european parliament but in one sense divergence that reference the need to create a european army that's what mr president merkel of france had alluded to quite clearly in recent days where she was quite strong quite outspoken talking about it
6:33 am
there was much applause for what she had to say in the chamber itself but also there were catcalls there was disagreement from some of the nationalist groups in the european parliament the essence of it though she says this is not a threat to nato this is the opportunity for european countries who are in nato already to harmonize their forces and strike a way of creating this european ethos the question will be given the fact that germany has been portrayed by missed by president trump as dragging its feet is not paying its fair share as it were in nato might the same questions being posed about germany with the european army clearly those questions are for the future but one thing is certain president mccraw and chancellor merkel agree there is this need for a european army. dozens of ethiopian government security agents who appeared in court over going to attack on the prime minister in june ethiopia's attorney general says evidence points to security chiefs ordering the assassination attempt on. two

6:50 am
gaza. might full on tuesday brought celebrate treat demonstrations in gaza victory being publicly declared most of the palestinian armed factions announced that a cease fire had been reached with israel. the uncertain line separating military escalation from all out war has been approached several times in the last few months but never as close as in the last few days this hamas video purporting to show a barrows of rocket fire unbridled intensity even on any single day from the three previous goza wars israel responding with scores of airstrikes on the strip targeting what it said were hamas and islamic jihad linked buildings even if they lay within built up civilian areas israel typically doesn't respond to palestinian announcements of a cease fire however the israeli media did quote an unnamed official saying that israel would respond according to events on the ground that after a six hour meeting of the israeli security cabinet which ended in
6:51 am
a terse statement saying that the israeli military would act as necessary. that at least leaves room for both sides to pull back before the damage and loss of life in gaza and in israel began to build a momentum towards war that could have and could still become inescapable the reason why we're seeing conflict after content every few years in gaza is that the underlying causes of the tensions the occupation of gaza the rockets which of course we condemn flying out of gaza your compassion these things are not addressed . this round began with a covert israeli incursion gone wrong on sunday night killing seven palestinian fighters and one israeli soldier up until that point there had been rare signs of hope in the territory electricity flowing in a way not seen in years qatari money allowed in to pay at least partially civil servant salaries israeli prime minister has defended the measures saying they could lead to stability and avoid an unnecessary and costly war both sides then have much
6:52 am
to lose from allowing this dangerous exchange to devolve into something worse but they also have domestic political pressure which can act in the opposite direction . now this was a protest against the ceasefire in the border town of steroids on tuesday israeli prime minister under pressure to demonstrate he isn't ceding ground undermining israeli to terence by stepping back from war are a force at al-jazeera know how laws in southern israel are joining us now the diplomatic editor james days who is at the united nations what are you hearing there about this latest outbreak of violence james. well it's going to be discussed by the u.n. security council they are going to have a meeting on guard finally a meeting that was called for by kuwait and bolivia let me give you a little bit of timing on that the u.n. security council is just concluding an open meeting over on the democratic republic
6:53 am
of congo when that meeting is finished in the open the go into a closed session again on the d r c i estimate that last about an hour and then straight afterwards they will discuss the situation in gaza ahead of that meeting we've already heard from the israeli ambassador to the united nations danny down on what you're hearing about a cease fire but certainly he when speaking to reporters was not talking about a cease fire he was making it clear that there are not when he said when he said that other nations will call on restraint from both sides in his view there are not two sides here is very much a story of one side hamas farming rockets of course all the current cycle of violence started after that israeli intervention in garza that elite israeli force that went inside garza i asked him to explain to us what was the mission of that force he didn't answer the question this is what he said we take action to
6:54 am
protect our people and we continue to do that unfortunately danger there you are the math vision that they continue to dig tunnels they continue to think about ways to attack israel and we will continue to take any measure measure necessary to protect our people regarding that the future of our porch is very clear if you do not be quiet in these vell it cannot be quiet in gaza and i think the hamas leaders know exactly what are the capability of of the valley i.d.f. and they know we can get to them even if they hide beneath tunnels and beneath hospitals. well as we've seen many times before there's no unity on the security council regarding the israeli palestinian issue and diplomats are telling me they think it's unlikely the security council even be able to agree the words of a statement at the end of their meeting of course the bigger issue is the wider
6:55 am
peace between the israelis and palestinians and there the u.s. have made it clear that everyone else in the international community should wait for their peace plan which is being devised by president trump son in law gerrard cushion or some diplomats are getting somewhat frustrated by this very long wait for this peace plan was this a growing problem i asked the french ambassador to the u.n. francois the laclede told me i think it's a fair question that you should address to jerad question and our american friends remiss continue to weigh thank you very much james bays intonation. and then further developments in the case of murdered saudi jealous jamal khashoggi a turkish newspaper has published x.-ray images of the suitcases belonging to the saudi hit squad which carried out the killing in istanbul last month and the white house national security adviser john bolton is also suggested audio recordings of

the killing do not implicate saudi crown prince mohammed bin sell none she has one hour from outside the saudi consulate in istanbul. these latest images so for example so rangers believed to have possibly been used user to subdue jamal herschel two or possibly even kill him that falls in line with the narrative that we received dissolved a zero early on this case when we broke the news that jamal specialty was killed and it was off that he entered shortly that he was injected with something parts of his body being dismembered the show for example a taser they show a jamming device used to jam communications in the immediate area of when and where it's operated as well as quote closed circuit communication devices that would make it's hard for communication between those teams to be tapped into while they are here charts have these recordings where they say there was phone calls made by modem a clip the ringleader of this assassination squad the kill squad which came here between him and the personal secretary of commerce become
6:57 am
a been some money in one of those conversations he sells the secretary tell your boss the deed has been done on the operation has been completed obviously we haven't heard the original arabic words of the contents of those recordings but in the translation that sort of imply that your boss here is a reference to have been some of the closest there is truly a smoking gun with regard to the implication of the defector would out of saudi arabia still the charts say justice must be served in order for that sort of happen the saudis need to disclose who gave the order who is alternately responsible for the assassination of. state department spokesman have a now it say it says that the u.s. is committed to a swift investigation of the khashoggi might have importance of holding all of those of us involved in the killing of john jamal can show be accountable the secretary has spoken to the fact that the united states government is compiling some of its own data and taking a look at those facts we're getting information from
6:58 am
a variety of sources and as any government would at least and will tell you and we'll take a look at all the information. now after months of negotiations the united kingdom on the european union have finally reached a framework agreement for breakfast according to the office of prime minister to resign may it will still need political approval of both the british and european sides and it's already facing stiff resistance from members of our own party and crucial coalition partners that the fulbright and explains. the prime minister needs all the support she can get at the moment and a selected group of her government ministers were brought to downing street on tuesday night to read the text of the negotiated breck's a divorce deal for themselves to date six government ministers have already quit over the way bracks it has been negotiated how many of the current cabinet will choose to follow suit once the brics a term sinkin and even if cabinet unity is maintained leaked details of the draft agreement have provoked howls of outrage from both grex its supporters and
6:59 am
opponents in the british parliament we're going to stay in the custody of this deal we're going to stay if it to be in large parts of that of the single market and that means it's facile states we are going to for the first time in a thousand years this place this parliament will not have a say over the laws that govern this country it is a quite incredible state of affairs the problem here is the prime minister's not been negotiating in the nationalist press she's been negotiating but she thinks she can get past the cabinet but as i say given the first shambolic nature of the negotiations this is unlikely to be the right deal for britain optimistic words from the british press it secretary if any change. the terry some may leads a minority government on the arithmetic looks police securing have the necessary parliamentary votes is the job of the chief whip and i think the record i. saw the best deal for the best business is to talk to families to get.

7:05 am
i'll come back and look at the top stories this hour palestinian armed groups have announced a cease fire with israel issued a statement promising to abide by the egyptian brokered truce as long as israel does the say it brings an end to days of cross border violence which had threatened to descend into war. a turkish newspapers published x.-rays of the suitcases belonging to the saudi hit squad which is believed to have carried out the murder of jamal khashoggi in istanbul last month it comes as the white house national security adviser john bolton suggested apparent audio recordings do not link the saudi crown prince to the crying. after months of negotiations the united
7:06 am
kingdom and the european union have finally reached a framework agreement for bracks it's cabinet ministers have been briefed on the plan though it still means final political approval on both the british and european sides. now italy's euro skeptic government has deliberately missed a deadline to resubmit its budget plans to the european union for more on what that means on a gago joins us live now from rome and tony i think we are expecting the government to stick with its strategy what is likely to happen now. to their strategy is exactly what they plan to do the deputy prime minister luigi myer from the establishment five star movement came out in the past hour and said that indeed the government was going to stick to its plan and was going to go ahead with its promises to its voters now in its promises it said that it would provide
7:07 am
a universal income to unemployed italians which would be supportive of that part of their voters as well and also put in place a flat tax for wealthier individuals and also for corporations as well now what's the european commission is very worried about which is one of the reasons why it rejected this in the first place is that it will just not be able to afford to do this it's banking on the facts italy is that is that it will have a growth rate of one point five percent in the coming year and the european commission looking at italy's very very sluggish growth in the last quarter alone it was not point two percent they are unsure exactly how it's he intends to run poppy its growth rate now there is some talk that there is a chance that it will just do things such as sell off public buildings public lands
7:08 am
in order to be able to push up its growth rate as raw as well but they're maintaining that is going to be very difficult indeed so all in all it's setting up for a collision course against brussels between rome and brussels bartz this really has been. have seen in the past few months you're a skepticism has been growing in italy as well the two parties that stand to profit from them are the ones in government right now. and just to put this into perspective for us briefly sonia why does this government want to deliberately put itself on a collision course with the what are they have to gain by that. italy in its current state has been really struggling to emerge from the european debt crisis well it don't forget of course that italy has the second largest debt in europe as well so there has been a feeling of
7:09 am
a grudge towards brussels as well this feeling that perhaps all the problems that stem in its lee from brussels are not necessarily from. lack of reforms within its own economy what the commission says and plenty of other economists say is that what is actually needed is the reform of italy's economy as well and that in the plan there is no. place as it were or there hasn't been any indication of how it's he intends to reform that or how intense to produce more productivity is low here the time being and there is no concrete plan to be able to put any infrastructure in place or any of those things that are needed to make its li a productive economy thank you very much sunny go bring us all the latest on that from the taliban capital right now opening arguments have been heard in the trial of joaquin guzman the notorious mexican drug lord also known as el chapo he is facing
7:10 am
seventeen prominent counts and a potential life sentence for alleged drug crime and gang violence. joins us live now from new york and it is a trial that comes with its own unique set of risks and circumstances take us through the opening arguments that were heard today. yeah the court just let out just within the last hour or so it was a very dramatic opening day in court here in brooklyn let me first tell you how joaquin el chapo guzman looked he was dressed in a sharp dark colored suit and a pressed white shirt and a tie he was clean shaven he was not in handcuffs but he had two federal marshals that were sitting right behind him at the defense's table throughout the time that he was in the courtroom there is a lot of added security here but within the courtroom he looked like just your average person quite frankly seemed very relaxed as he was getting a simultaneous translation of what was going on in the courtroom from
7:11 am
a translator next to him now how is this trial going to shape out we heard from the prosecution or the government and they basically laid out in their opening statements that chapo guzman is one of the world's biggest drug traffickers responsible they say for billions of dollars in drugs sold throughout the world including here in the united states they say that it he was so wealthy that he would get plane loads of cocaine that would fly through mexico and that he would then send to the united states to sell drugs they say not only that but they say he's also a murderer who pulled the trigger several times they say to kill some of his rivals now the defense argued the up us to opposite they say not only is he not the biggest drug trafficker in the world he's not even the biggest drug trafficker in mexico they say they say in the course of this trial which is expected to last three or four months that they are going to show that chapo guzman is nothing but a myth and that the real culprits of the drug trade are the governments of mexico
7:12 am
and elsewhere they say all chapel is just nothing more than a myth so that's what how the stage is being set for this trial that's going to go on a long time here in brooklyn it's going to go on a long time and it certainly took a long time to see him in a corner and thank you very much. the un human rights chief says bangladesh's government should hope plans to repatriate more than two thousand range of muslims to myanmar saying such a move would endanger their lives in a statement michelle bassett russia they said the human rights violations committed against the rangar in myanmar amount to the worst atrocities including crimes against humanity possibly even genocide added with an almost complete lack of accountability indeed with on going violations returning rang the refugees to myanmar at this point effectively means throwing them back into the cycle of human rights violations its community has been suffering for decades well mohammad jam jim has more on this now from cox is bizarre. a dire warning issued by the u.n. high commissioner for human rights michelle by chalet who in

a statement on tuesday said that the return of her him to refugees to me and more would constitute a violation of international law and would put their lives and freedom at great risk this is just one more statement of great concern this been issued by a member of the you when at a very critical time here in bangladesh in the past few weeks it was announced by the government of bangladesh and the government of me and more that possibly thousands of refugees could be repatriated to me and more on thursday november fifteenth there is still a lot of uncertainty here as to if that will actually happen members of bangladesh's government have have told us that nobody will be forced to go that the repatriation will only be voluntary but they have also told us that they are waiting to get the assessment of the un agency for refugees the u n h e r u n h e r of course has said in the past several days that they do not recommend that this
7:14 am
process be rushed they are very concerned because up until now there has been no mechanism that has been created that would guarantee the safety and security of rode him joe refugees once they were kind to me and more so that's just part of this building concern of course in the refugee community here in crocks is are we are hearing that there is a mounting sense of dread and terror that many refugees are being told their names are on the list that they could possibly be repeat treated and they are very worried about what that means for their future. every signs of compromise in the ongoing conflict in libya general twenty five to the commander of the south libyan national army base in libya's east is committed to an action plan to end seven years of fighting have to and his rival. the foreign powers have endorsed a plan ofter a conference took place in sicily jonah hill has all the latest from that summit and lemme. thirty countries attended this conference on libya's future but what

7:24 am
all of him and. you not sure i'm. you don't know what's going to come. along and i thought times quotes so i thought oh no honey put them shining like an ocean in my. hawking place . and. sit on the. edge of. the globe. this is the reason it's me i've been working in the field of human rights here in israel palestine for about twenty three years it can be in the courts it can be civil disobedience and. it can be accompanying farmers or shepherds to protect them from settlers. the
7:25 am
settlers are a very very group some of them are not violent at all although they often nevertheless turn a blind eye when others are being violent. but some of them are more violence and some of them are very violent the most violent perhaps are the so-called hilltop youth. if i look into them so. i almost felt in a way and second that coolness local how the second at an. end but he leapt at the idea. i didn't hold could have been out the. minority in michigan no i didn't i'm in a j h o minute a short thought. i wish i could show the series into three one a bit of job loss i think you know government commerce and kind of government almost see it. in more fit
7:26 am
a couple sentences and been real money able been cocoa with above it i'm. definitely such a god human terms that. i mean today we have a very right wing government which supports the settlers doesn't matter to them whether the israelis are acting legally or illegally peacefully or violently. the people that live out here. more that's the same population that attacked us very violently in april. two thousand and seventeen. the hilltop youth are young they are do wells who kind of drop out of every system they see themselves as being extremely religious so that the messiah will come and be god's kingdom here but they don't even respect the rabbis of the settlements who
7:27 am
they are is a natural outgrowth of what we've created here. most of the other settlers and the police and the army they all. this own they all reject they all criticize the hilltop youth and it's very in some ways comfortable for them to say well we're not them but they maybe we're becoming. me. sometimes i don't. know if they want to. but a lot of folks going to give up when he was there but then i think question earlier .
7:28 am
in the essay. thank you dang cut it off i say again with asean the whole thing an income source and. i must put him there and i am with a bang and i think if well but i'm going to show they're going to show you have been shut out of it i mean that's a paper we are going to thing we give up as a main not separate kind as a. sequel or this off and say if i keep thinking about. him going by vain and fighting about it but i'm famous don't put me in office though them what's actually name was saying one of us has a. name for the there. is
7:29 am
a as danged a really kind of a man with a novel that the people who support some of these terrible actions can go to the bible they can go to the thomas they can find support for their their values as well. but what these people have done is they've elevated. about any other value the land of israel. killing is not always forbidding the going to jewish tradition murder is and how do you draw that line but of course. it is murder when you throw a fire bomb into someone's home. schmidt
7:30 am
. and we think of the omanis one of the things about a few homes. he said i think in little bit i don't know them like there is. no you. will a lot of them and. a senator that the deadline the thing that i think did it can feel even bit more do they will come over to the inside and with a bit i'm going. to get on with them.
7:31 am
on the i did because i would but then. that is that i mean in the truth of it they only. just know dude and if you do not can you. can slide to the business. and there's some in the state with walker and then this if. you know.
7:32 am
the name. then chamish. can the pub do what i can and there you are as you know my who most of the mean no shift you know at the inn what the gullible share for any. i don't. know how to. whom it doesn't matter if you should buy them a lot of them up first and then other who. don't have names i need. a lot lower how .
7:33 am
long. they even really do. fit them in home and we're going live at the good in the old home. i moved almost all to new who are literally in the home of the home of the. i was typical american in the eighty's that i have at the see a rabbi kahane came to our campus and he made me think that the something else i could do in my life other than just go to work and make money in something else there was a single fellow at twenty seven years old and now i'm with eight children and with meaning in my life and i'm sure if i stayed america i would not have this kind of life rather god saw the problem and he that defy the problem and he had given the answer the answer for him was to expel the arabs from israel. after two thousand
7:34 am
years of living under the gentiles we said thank you but no thanks we've come back to our country so now we've come back and we have a people inside us who want it who can turn it into palestine through the market see with through babies are not bullets and who can protest that it's democracy so there's a big contradiction between democracy and zionism because zionism says it's going to be a jewish state no matter what. so when some youth go out and do something against an arab i can't say it's wrong i can't i can't blame them so if my girls dwell in this other way that. i'm not going to condemn them there i taught them that they should self-sacrifice for the people and for their country so that they doing it and i'm proud of it. i wanted it to happen to me. and she went on she's not often a mommy. and she whole vikki from. that it's my find
7:35 am
my you see my. ileostomy don't even call me out to have it don't want me don't it don't mean not because they don't come to someone. in the end money made them into fine feelings and get out of the mini us out on. any mission it only showed me how much you mean hamas. and the toughness i'm now all moderate and that they can bend it is that shalt not kill you shall not kill the other hand it says and in the talmud if one comes to slay you slay him first so it's not like you never kill you don't kill if you believe that the kill but if one comes against you it's a it's
7:36 am
a commandment to kill him first and now we have the land and we have an enemy and we have to get back to being the original jew of the bible like david was that knows when to kill and when not to kill. my daughter riley got married the one who made the sure he was one of the fellows from doing so at the wedding there was a lot of what they call hilltop you because my son was was in hilltop youth friends of the guy and introduced him he's the guy who was a suspect so we had a lot of filter pieces in the middle of the wedding and some built up kids it took a sign i happen to be one of the babies that would bring.
7:37 am
it. to. her. i don't cry for. i don't cry for what happened recently. but look at your mother a lot going to do fit in the moment only you know for a fairly sort of income process will you be who we are or move this again he's been kind of the minority in this belief and i have been. a plumber lucky unlimited thousand member again and i really i have had in good fun i you know
7:38 am
them. both to me and i mean almost given them before well in the east but the novel . you. know can open for any. can get me in it that i mean i get them walk off with. this horn and the lead domino mizzen in she means on line. of all of the and all of the even if you haven't done the hundred. i'm call in a palestinian youth convicting of throwing stones. can get a longer sentence than an israeli convicted of. murdering about.
7:39 am
she just said to my family do are just not for that i am no you're standing i mean i'm a country like. i guess as a guy who should have a w.v. envy. and me shit day off ratcheting up of the big don't make not kill is a long time friend is. your name i think king of the woman on a pile of money when i'm hiding with him and my default on him. i'm out of the employ of the norm now to say i wish we knew how close. is truly.
7:40 am
a quarter of a question i am vets have a question i have lots of almost i working with as little autumn solution not. as. goofy. and i lost five machines the colors of them so long to come on boys i ask here is there anything much more that i did say it will benefit i initiative though i know this is i think of it as issue the issue to share i'm this on the ship it is shooting shoot me softly i leave them with mushroom until the they all to move a little is a shoeshine boy. because it's a lot to know she's not going to work no thing i'm sure nice program programming him to shawn today and i'm sure by now you know it's awesome and i'm shihab.
7:41 am
this. summit meeting. with the. old simple man who was legitimately i was a lot of the folks who didn't i give more lives in addition i was looking to session as only when it come up the only way i could severely disadvantaged children a spouse is up to three and if it's such any ship would work. unlike any which of times lives on a. privileged holger hodge's of what. i thought was awful on the emotion of the not the most equal it at the mercy of a government that an image not good is a fellow with another mccarthy to democrat yeah you have got to go to the to the to the motional good. to get the gun with the thought of those. who don't and
7:42 am
it is doing all the things are going to last through it do them both on the end of it and i see no listing into the good when if it's seen as it was you bought them so much i got it up in my little corner of the embedded in the consciousness of the jewish people is two thousand years of oppression for two thousand years. we crave power. we crave to return to our homeland. we prayed day after day to return to our homeland and finally we got what we asked for. the torah is telling us. someday you're going to have a state. and is warning us you must be different in other than to go there because of a. psychologist tell us that if you were beaten as a child you are more likely to beat your own children i don't know there's been anybody in history that's been beaten as much as the jewish people so it is nothing
7:43 am
for us to repeat others what was done to us but the torah according to her is saying no you have to define human nature and be different it's not easy perhaps we have to have understanding how difficult that is but as a rabbi that's right i think our task is. that you. know. these people can be extremely violent and of course the palestinians are alone it's even worse. we don't recognize international law as apply in the occupied territories so these people are protected they neither have the protections of being part of the democracy that makes the decisions here nor do they have the protection of
7:44 am
international law designed to protect an occupied people and they are therefore totally dependent on arbonne if essence and our goodwill and our sense of morals. the very existence of settlements is a violation of the individual and collective rights of some on the collective the palestinian one and therefore it is violent. the more extreme you are the more violent you are we know that the more nationalistic extreme you are the more militia like you become this is one level the other level is the reason a deep not so hidden quite overt philosophical trend within religious mysie on exeunt ism that
7:45 am
promotes violence. israel is not a normal country we're the only country in the west who has a permanent conflict with its region a permanent conflict with the western democracy and a permanent conflict when we've been in a situation like this that the political system fails people outside of the political system the off broadway of politics becomes more extreme an activist and try to force the system. so all of the sudden every idiot at the top of the here takes a flag. stick it down and all of the sudden that's the no border of the country so you do not have a governmental top doll strategy you have hill kids bottom up tactics and
7:46 am
documentation of all of the tactics becomes of fortunately the national strategy so that insignificant in numbers the insignificant ideologically the insignificant even as a crime gang that a very significant by dictating the government a defacto policy which is rolled. under the dome and. the command structure has not come up. this is something. it's not.
7:47 am
going to end until in the commission again took him. becoming miss anything just. insane one. could. see in this demeanor. a congress divided between democrats and republicans. what does it mean for america and the world in these remaining two years of donald trump's presidency. find out on al-jazeera. for many years i kept
7:48 am
my past a secret but every time violent extremism is mentioned it bothers me. how could i believe that we were subpoenaed here how could i beat up other women what if they really had started a race war. our farm would i have come knocking in america to confront the past x eight a witness documentary on al-jazeera. i really felt liberated as a journalist when i was getting to the truth as an eyewitness that's what this job . this is al-jazeera.
7:49 am
cloggs the whole robin you're watching the al-jazeera news our life one headquarters here in doha coming up in the next sixty minutes palestinian factions in gaza are agreed to a cease fire deal with israel to end the worst flare up of violence in months. the united kingdom and the eat you agree to a draft deal after months of negotiations but can it get approval from the cabinet and the british parliament. also new images of a possible clues about how a saudi hit squad by to prepare for journalists. the search for bodies continues in california as hundreds missing in the deadliest wildfires in the state's history. they hold the new palestinian groups including her servants to cease. with israel
7:50 am
after an escalation in violence threatened to descend into full blown wall they issued a joint statement promising to abide by the egyptian brokered truce as long as israel does the same there's been no official announcement from the israelis the latest round of violence began on sunday when a covert convert israeli operation led to the killing of seven palestinians and one israeli soldier then twenty four hours of palestinian rocket fire from gaza and israeli air strikes killed eight people how the force it has the latest from the israeli community of the heart of the border with gaza. nightfall on tuesday brought celebrate three demonstrations in gaza victory being publicly declared after the palestinian armed factions announced that a cease fire had been reached with israel. the uncertain line
7:51 am
separating military escalation from all out war has been approached several times in the last few months but never as close as in the last few days this hamas video purporting to show a barrel of rocket fire unrivaled in intensity even on any single day in the three previous gaza wars israel responding with scores of air strikes on the strip targeting what it said were hamas and islamic jihad linked buildings even if they lay within built up civilian areas israel typically doesn't respond to palestinian announcements of a cease fire however the israeli media did quote an unnamed official saying that israel would respond according to events on the ground that after a six hour meeting of the israeli security cabinet which ended in a terse statement saying that the israeli military would act as necessary. that at least leaves room for both sides to pull back before the damage and loss of life in gaza and in israel began to build a momentum towards war that could have and could still become inescapable the reason why we're seeing conflict after conflict of
7:52 am
a few years in gaza is that the underlying causes of the tensions the occupation of gaza the rockets which of course we condemn flying out of gaza your capacious these things are not addressed. this round began with a covert israeli incursion gone wrong on sunday night killing seven palestinian fighters and one israeli soldier up until that point there had been rare signs of hope in the territory electricity flowing in a way not seen in years qatari money allowed in to pay at least partially civil servant salaries israeli prime minister has defended the measures saying they could lead to stability and avoid an unnecessary and costly war both sides then have much to lose from allowing this dangerous exchange to devolve into something worse but they also have domestic political pressure which can act in the opposite direction . this was a protest against the ceasefire in the border town of steroids on tuesday israeli
7:53 am
prime minister under pressure to demonstrate he isn't ceding ground undermining israeli to terence by stepping back from war are a force at al-jazeera. in southern israel. israel's ambassador to the u.n. security must condemn what he called aggressive actions against his country. we take action to protect our people and we continue to do that unfortunately danger there you are the math regime that they are continuing to dig tunnels they continue to think about ways to attack israel and we will continue to take any measure no measure necessary to protect our people regarding that the future of our porch is very clear if you do not be quiet in israel if you not be quiet in gaza and i think the hamas leaders know exactly what are the capabilities of all the very i.d.f. and they know we can get to them even if they hide beneath tunnels and beneath hospitals well out of line to get the james bays has been following developments
7:54 am
from the united nations well as we've seen many times before there's no unity on the security council regarding the israeli palestinian issue and diplomats are telling me they think it's unlikely the security council even be able to agree the words of a statement at the end of their meeting of course the bigger issue is the wider peace between the israelis and palestinians and there the u.s. have made it clear that everyone else in the international community should wait for their peace plan which is being devised by president trump son in law gerrard cushion or some diplomats are getting somewhat frustrated by this very long wait for this peace plan was this a growing problem i asked the french ambassador to the u.n. francois the lark he told me i think it's a fair question that you should address to jerad question and our american friends phyllis bennis instructor of the new internationalism project at the institute for policy studies and joins me now from washington d.c.
7:55 am
good to have you with us on the program again mr bennett i mean we've seen this before short term clashes and a sharp intake of breath as we wonder what happens next a cease fire hold. you know i think we don't know yet clearly the interests of people in the gaza strip as well as the israelis on the other side of a fence have an interest in a ceasefire but the israeli government has made clear that it's not at all a done deal that it isn't necessarily mostly concerned about the possibility of casualties or anything else in terms of the cease fire this is about occupation this is about the continuing occupation of the gaza strip in a different form certainly than the occupation of the west bank we have soldiers in the main surrounding and besieging gaza only entering on occasion as they did on sunday in the israeli special forces went into the gaza strip. an operation
7:56 am
which may have intended to be an assassination operation and if it wasn't intended it became an assassination opportunity and that was what led to this most recent. clash but i think as the earlier speaker said we're certainly dealing primarily with a much larger problem and that is that the united states has made clear that it will continue to support and defend the israeli occupation of the west bank and gaza and occupation east jerusalem no matter how how much israel violates international law violates human rights etc and in that context there's very little pressure being brought to bear on his you know there's no external pressure at all being brought to bear on the israeli state on the israeli government are the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu to push for a cease fire to push for a serious kind of peace agreement the agreement that the u.s. claims to be working on that the question or idea from what we know of the leaks it
7:57 am
is not anything that remotely resembles meats it is something that will be a car for a palestinian surrender which will presumably not be accepted. and it's something that is depending on the saudi government not most notably the crown prince mohammed bin some man who has been collaborating with both israel and the united states towards this kind of an agreement if and when his credibility is so diminished because of his alleged involvement in the murder. of jamal khashoggi i think that this is a very unlikely thing to take place short of that the best we can hope for right now is that the israelis will see it in their interests to remain with the current cease fire and not continue the kinds of attacks on gaza that we've seen so far is too many people have been misspent if you touch on quite a few points clarified a few issues that's just go back then to why the israelis would like to keep the
7:58 am
status quo as it is because it's only a few months ago when the israeli army were warning the cabinet that the tension on the gaza strip was so incredibly high because of the restrictions of trying to get good scene of the restrictions of fuel and general living conditions that that tension needed to be lowered we've now seen an influx of qatari money go in to at least pay those salaries we've seen qatari fuel go in to to maintain the power generation systems how important has that be to lower the tensions than how unusual then is it for the israeli to go in covertly in quite a current situation to do what they did on sunday well i think if we look at what was allowed it was as it was a certain amount of money it's something like fifteen million dollars which will go to pay part of the back head of the underpaid and in many cases unpaid civil
7:59 am
service in gaza we're talking about the teachers the street cleaners the everybody who works for the municipalities in the gaza strip and allowing in a one time batch of oil. now whether that's going to be repeated we don't know the israelis may well cut it off and say this was designed to lower the tension now we've lowered the tension now we can treat things as we have in the past the entry of soldiers covertly disguised into into gaza as in the west bank is a frequent occurrence it's a common occurrence it's not something rare this is what occupation in includes you know they don't have to have troops permanently on the ground to maintain this kind of control and again whether the intention was an assassination or whether that was just an opportunity grab when it became available we don't know but we do know that that was the result of this group of special forces heading in one of those special
8:00 am
forces was killed in the firefight now i don't think that the israelis have an interest in promoting more more fighting particularly but i think that the question of power and control is what is dominant here not the question of ensuring that human rights of the the two million palestinians living in gaza of whom have are our children eighty percent are refugees and the same eighty percent are completely dependent on foreign assistance for basic survival as long as the united states makes clear that it will not allow any pressure to be brought to bear any attempt to bring an investigation to the international criminal court for instance will be met with the punishment of the court itself according to the trump administration will be met with the punishment of the palestinians and may try to bring it to the court as long as that is the status quo that is what serves israeli interests but we shall see what does happen for the most beautiful especially us thanks very
8:01 am
much for your time that washington d.c. good to have you with us. thank you let's head to europe now where after months of negotiations the united kingdom and the european union have finally reached a framework agreement for brakes it according to the office of the prime minister to resign it will still lead the political approval of both the british and european sides and it's already facing stiff resistance from members of may's own party and a crucial coalition partner the d u p paul brennan has more. the prime minister needs all the support she can get at the moment and a selected group of her government ministers were brought to downing street on tuesday night to read the text of the negotiated breck's a divorce deal for themselves to date six government ministers have already quit over the way bracks it has been negotiated how many of the current cabinet will choose to follow suit once the brics a term sinkin and even if cabinet unity is maintained leaked details of the draft
8:02 am
agreement have provoked howls of outrage from both bracks its supporters and opponents in the british parliament we're going to stay in the custody of this deal we're going to stay if it to be in large parts of the of the single market and that means it's vassal states we are going to for the first time in a fountain here is this place this parliament will not have a say over the laws that govern this country it is a quite incredible state of affairs the problem here is the prime minister's not been negotiating in the nationalist press she's been negotiating but she thinks she can get past a couple of but as i say given the first shambolic nature of the negotiations this is unlikely to be the right deal for britain optimistic words from the british bracks it secretary if any change. to theresa may leads a minority government on the arithmetic looks bleak securing have the necessary parliamentary votes is the job of the chief whip i should be arrested i.
8:03 am
saw the best steal the best businesses to talk to families to get. passports. this is the beginning of the end game for breakfast the full u.k. cabinet convenes a two pm on wednesday european ambassadors will digest the brics a document when they meet him brussels later in the day in a statement the e.u.'s chief negotiator michel bonnie a cautioned that the text has stable. ised but is not yet finalized we are making progress he said but we're not there yet paul brennan al-jazeera. all journalists is a deputy director at the think tank british influence and he joins me now live from london good to have you with us mr list this is a technical agreement not a legal agreement we have to be very clear on that for our international viewers what's the difference what it means that it's been agreed by the negotiates
8:04 am
a technical level but it hasn't been signed off by parliamentarians neither brussels or london and it has no legal status but it will after they have votes on it indeed how much of a moment of truth then is this for the british prime minister there will be those fall against the agreement and they're going to voice their concerns before the vote in parliament absolutely because she has very little chance of getting this deal through because the deal is hated by all wins that parliament the labor party will vote against it because it doesn't deliver on the exact same benefits that was promised originally and the other opposition parties will vary with them the d.p. the democratic unionist party which holds up the government of the moment will vote against it because it introduces regulatory barriers between great britain and northern ireland the heartbreaks it wearing jacob reese was boris johnson etc will vote against it because it keeps the u.k. in the customs union and they remain supporting tories will vote against it because it gives us a much less influence on also is very very bad for services so with all of the
8:05 am
against the prime minister why then bring game to her cabinet ministers one by warm i mean what's the point about what's that telling us. she has no option but to do this because she knows that the first check on this deal will be the cabinet and if the cabinet doesn't approve it then it doesn't even get to parliament so she has to try and sweet talk the arms of her government but really she has to tell them different things she has to tell the remain supporters that there'll be a softer exit draft so they leave supports in the leave ministers in her government and they will leave the customs union as soon as the transition period ends in twenty twenty so she really can't get away with it eventually she'll have to be honest about what this deal means and they want to get through parliament when she does it's rather perplexing time in british history because. this could be make or break for political leaders across the british spectrum they know they can't stop breaks it for the moment. and yet there is
8:06 am
a suggestion that they are sort of not totally. in in terms of how you progress beyond the parliamentary vote do you go back to negotiations or do you give that vote back to the british public which is something that there is a call for in some parts of the country that's right so that's the people's vote campaign and that's just become a lot like here because now we know that the d.p. is going to vote against this deal the heartbreaks they're wearing and so on the deal doesn't stand a chance of getting through parliament and then we're in sort of a freefall certainly there's a deadlock because no one knows what to do next there is no majority in parliament for no deals in our butts no one's entirely sure what they will be and so the people's vote then becomes much likelier because it becomes a way out a kind of compromise where parliament says we don't know what to do so let's give about the rich people to show us the way forward jonathan finally just yes or no
8:07 am
are we heading towards a general election. it could well be the labor party wants to reason they would do anything to avoid it but we might get that we'll see what happens in the car big powers i'm sure thanks very much for joining us from london . on the al-jazeera news. supreme court's new twist in the constitutional crisis gripping the country also talks to try to end seven years of fighting as libyan leaders and foreign powers meet in the city of palermo and the ban on libya hosting international matches leaves them struggling to qualify for the africa cup of nations peter that story in. turkish media have published what they say are x. ray images showing the contents of suitcases carried by the hit squad that killed

8:22 am

8:23 am
been intense and they've jumped fire lines there's a thirty percent thirty five percent containment line around this fire but it is such a large fire it's miles and miles and miles of. still burning and it goes exactly where the wind was and the wind is erratic so it's anyone's guess where it will go next. fighting those blazes and the resources available to. the states play all the way to. the federal level. yes they are in fact yesterday i heard there were fifty five new engines coming in from houston texas we saw c one thirty military tankers retrofitted to carry water flame retardant along with an enormous d.c.

the u.s. he's escaped from prison to mexico twice to the u.s. who is facing trafficking conspiracy charges. joins me from new york following this case i mean what was it like in the courtroom today. well it was really high drama inside this courtroom in brooklyn in this federal courthouse here you know you have that image of joaquin el chapo guzman from movies or books or the images we've seen of him when he's been arrested or elsewhere this was a much different chapo guzman that was in this courthouse today he was dressed in a shirt and tie he was clean shaven he was brought into the court room by two federal marshals and when he came in he briefly waved to his room wife who is in the audience there he seemed relaxed throughout their proceedings throughout the day and the only words that he spoke when he first was brought into the courtroom and the judge said good morning mr guzman and he said in spanish good morning and
8:26 am
that was all that we heard from the clearly high drama here as he was brought into this packed courtroom it was a tight total overflow area for all of the journalists from around the world that are here covering this case but guzman seemed relaxed in seem like he was ready for the long trial that awaits him indeed on the opening day of such a trial for both the prosecution and defense to states that case and perhaps give us an indication as to how they're going to fight all descend and. yeah opening statements by the government and the defense insurer the government case is this they say they will prove over the course of this trial that joaquin el chapo guzman is one of the world's biggest drug traffickers but also commanded the sin a low a cartel which they say is one of the biggest world's biggest criminal organizations they say that guzman for decades would bring hundreds of tons of cocaine and other
8:27 am
drugs into the u.s. and other countries as well and they say they have audio recordings and text messages that they will reveal in the trial to prove all of this and they also say he was relentless in killing his opponents and they say he pulled the trigger in some cases and that now the defense says it's a much different story they say joaquin el chapo guzman is more a myth than anything else they say he's not one of the world's biggest drug traffickers they say he's not even one of the biggest drug traffickers in mexico they say their defense that they're going to show that he is came from a very humble background and that he is simply being framed by what the defense says is a corrupt mexican government all through the bible believing that gabriel and follow the case very closely in the weeks ahead thank you. the un human rights chief says bangladesh should halt plans to repatriate more than two thousand two hundred ring of muslims to me and bar saying such

8:29 am
a very critical time here in bangladesh in the past few weeks it was announced by the government of bangladesh and the government of myanmar that possibly thousands of refugees could be repatriated to me and mar on thursday november fifteenth there is still a lot of uncertainty here as to if that will actually happen members of bangladesh's government have have told us that nobody will be forced to go that the repatriation will only be voluntary but they have also told us that they are waiting to get the assessment of the un agency for refugees the u.n. h.c.r. u.n.h.c.r. of course has said in the past several days that they do not recommend that this process be rushed they are very concerned because up until now there has been no mechanism that has been created that would guarantee the safety and security of refugees once they were turned to me and more so that's just part of this building concern of course in the refugee community here in proxy that is are we are hearing
8:30 am
that there is a mounting sense of dread and terror that many refugees are being told their names are on the list that they could possibly be repatriated and they are very worried about what that means for their future. president. called the french president. just on a. trip to paris to stay the u.s. needs. approval rating. for a european but. the response from the elisei was quite clear no comment. was off it is saying that the french president would not be responding to donald trump's tweets and it's really no surprise because it was just two days ago that emanuel michael was asked about responding to another of donald trump's tweets and the french president said that he prefers to have conversations directly face to face and that he doesn't indulge in diplomacy on twitter
8:31 am
now in terms of how these tweets by the u.s. presidents have gone down with the wider french public well there's been some commentators who have said that this is merely the u.s. president trying to get back if you will at the french president for that speech on armistice day the centennial here in paris where. talked about nationalism he criticized it saying it was the opposite of patriotism well that was widely seen as a swipe at the u.s. president that being of the commentators who said that the u.s. president has perhaps overstepped the mark by raising the issue of german occupation in one tweet he says that parisians were speaking german before the us arrived during the world wars and for some commentators bringing up such a painful chapter in french history just for political one upmanship is a mark of poor form if you like and all of this on quite a poignant important day here in france it is
8:32 am
a three year anniversary of the paris attacks which took place november twenty fifth the more than one hundred thirty people died and the only time a man or marco house tweeted today has been to pay tribute to the victims. the german chancellor angela merkel has supported possible calls calls for a european. in speeches like this alternately engler merkel sets a measured tone setting out the priorities for germany and for europe as she sees them and mostly that was the case in chief face delivery to strauss which of the european parliament but in one sense divergence that reference to the need to create a european army it's what mr president merkel of france had alluded to quite clearly in recent days where she was quite strong quite outspoken talking about it there was much applause for what she had to say in the chamber itself but also there were catcalls there was disagreement from some of the nationalist groups in the european
8:33 am
parliament the essence of it though she says this is not a threat to nato this is the opportunity for european countries who are in nato already to harmonize their forces and strike a way of creating this european ethos the question will be given the fact that germany has been portrayed by mistake by president trump as dragging its feet is not paying its fair share as it were in nato might the same questions been posed about germany with the european army clearly those questions are for the future but one thing is certain president mccraw and chancellor merkel agree there is this need for a european army. the vatican is delayed by the catholic church in the us to tackle sexual abuse by priests the u.s. conference of catholic bishops has been told to wait until next year to ensure more oversight and accountability she has. survivors of abuse gathered outside the u.s. conference of catholic bishops general assembly the priest who. told me i'd go to

hell if i ever told anyone frankly these activists who've long demand of the catholic church release all the names of abusive clergy to law enforcement had viewed this week scheduled vote on an independent commission to investigate abuse allegations and the code of conduct for u.s. bishops as a promising first step at most now there was anger that even had been forbidden by the vatican at the insistence of the holy see we will not be voting on the two action items. regarding the abuse crisis. is a sign of the vatican's commitment to change pope francis is convening a meeting february they are going to discuss global reform and doesn't want to limit his options with a vote in the u.s. now the conference of catholic bishops declined our request for an interview activists are skeptical they remain hopeful that sustained pressure from congregants will lead to meaningful change we will definitely. be watching and

vigilant and by we i mean certainly all the american catholics who are hoping that there would be. decisions and action taken here or they will run out of catholic churches it's exactly sixteen years since the two thousand and two bishops general assembly adopted measures they said would put an end to abuse by priests however delegates exempted themselves bishops from new oversight and transparency we must move forward we must put an end to this that was the former archbishop of washington d.c. congratulating those gathered down on their auction. he stepped down as a called this year following allegations that he sexually abused children. over decades with the knowledge of the church hierarchy just one of the many abuse scandals the catholic church has faced in two thousand and eighteen now those calling for change will have to wait until next year to see of the vatican is finally committed to legal not just divine accountability shihab rattansi

9:23 am
audiotape does not conclusively implicate mohamed bin solomon and saudi officials deny he had any knowledge of the killing. but the turkish president. says he shared recordings of the khashoggi killing with several countries saudi arabia the u.s. france germany britain and canada his prime minister justin trudeau at knowledged his country had received a copy we continue to be engaged with our allies on the investigation into accountability for the murder of jamal khashoggi and we are in discussions with other like minded allies as to next steps toward saudi arabia but the u.s. secretary of state might pompei or has spoken by phone with the crown prince and emphasize the u.s. will hold accountable all those involved in the killing the british foreign secretary jeremy hunt says accountability should also extend to those who gave the
9:24 am
order he was in riyadh on monday for talks with king solomon. i told very frankly about our concerns about what happened and how important it is for saudi strategic partners to know that this cannot and will not happen again and the first step in that process not the only step but the first step in the process is to make sure there is proper accountability for the people who are responsible person people who commit it's it also the people who care if you want us to react and. due process is in train at the moment in saudi arabia and i was led to believe there will be rapid progress in making sure the people of port justice. right let's introduce our guests now joining us here in doha is al offend the professor of politics of the doha institute for graduate studies in istanbul we have mehmet jelinek his political news editor at the daily sabah newspaper and in

london we have bill lora journalist and analyst at the gulf masses dot com welcome all to the program mehmet let me go to you first and just repeat those words the street words that a lot of people are attaching a huge amount of importance to and and this is these words are by some for some anyway of being a being cooled the link that a state is established now between the incident that happened in your city and mohammed bin salmen the crown prince of saudi arabia tell your boss what do you understand these words to mean and how do they help us with the understanding of the actual incident. well i think it's you know i mean there is a consensus on on this suspect here that without naming anyone it is almost for sure that it's a higher expected to have that made the decision behind the killing of mr
9:26 am
question. i mean new york times report suggests and says that it implicates that it is the crown prince mohammed bin said amman. unfortunately and turkish. investigation has not come up with any concrete evidence that will directly come to that conclusion and concretely will will support that implication however i mean there is there is a huge consensus that live that signals us to mohamed bin selman from the international community international media. i mean this to be supported with concrete evidence is what will depend on what riyadh provides us with from from from this point all or because turkey has already i mean there are several
9:27 am
things that have already been established the fact that this was a premeditated murder it's a fact that there is a team that was sent from saudi arabia to some will to execute the operation and the fact that some of these figures from the team are closely linked with mohammed and i'll tell you so minute mehmet let me just interrupt there because these are now established facts i think everybody's pretty familiar with but bill coming to you in london these three words as i say as so many people seem to be attaching a huge amount of significance to not john bolton i might add he has suggested that this is there is no concrete evidence between tell your boss and mohammed bin salmen but what do you think do you think these words are of really as significant as some people think or look i think that tell a boss yes very clearly all the all the signs are pointing to mom vents on mon and it's hard to. accept anything other than the fact that there's
9:28 am
a man who after all has assumed almost total control of the kingdom that he is the one responsible for dramatic house regimes death however the point of being raised by john bolton and others that this is not final an ultimate proof the thing is we're never going to get that proof we won't get that prove what we will get is the supposition a very strong likelihood that harbin from on is the man responsible now what does this mean for a moment someone well it means that he is seriously damaged certainly in terms of his reputation in western. reputation as a moderate a young man who's going to reform the kingdom and take a. into the twenty first century that particular meth has rather crushed around his right eye gaze shorn forty years all right. here with me in bill supposes that we might never ever get this concrete link that so many people are
9:29 am
searching for us just gave the order and that order came from the highest echelons of the saudi royal family does it matter. first i think. most. pilots personally i mentioned jamal was very good friend of mine and in fact there was with him in stumbled just one week before he became a victim of this sort of the sprite condones his story there is a human side to it and we shouldn't forget it when we are focusing on the politics of it i think i don't think we need any evidence because first of all the saudi state owned the crime not in terms of admitting it but incidents of working full time to try to hide it in to try to was struck the investigation so if it is was said something which is not connected to saudi state we wouldn't have seen
9:30 am
this sending the cleaners not telling people about where the body is so they have the killers so they know where you put the body wherever they put it what they did with it so the simplest thing would have been for them to just say that so the so would the state has been throwing the sodas to it as both the said there is. nothing happens there without him small things like tweets i mean if a royal like. his name for had to be imprisoned for a tweet. what would happen to people who would go it was so with the consulate and kill other people and then using planes from the state hired by the state and overcame there without the permission of the cloakrooms i think it's impossible everybody i think anybody who says we want more evidence means is
9:31 am
a complicit in the quick and coming back to you met in istanbul say president obama and the turkish authorities in maintaining this drip feeding effective information to wotton why is turkey providing the evidence in this way and using in particular your publication to to highlight it and to publicize it and how much more does president edwin actually have what i think is the fact that turkey is has carried this communication strategy. is i think it's significant because turkey keeps the matter alive right in international affairs i think things get consumed very quickly particularly when it comes to. issues like killing off the journalists or critical figures i think the fact that the president are gone has turned us into an international issue and kept at that way rather than turning
9:32 am
this into an issue between turkey and saudi arabia is i think it's a good thing that he has done it this way because now the issue is being talked issue has turned into an international issue and it's been kept that way the evidence is being communicated as it comes and as it is revealed i mean this is not this is a very complicated issue as you know so it is not something that will be handled as a simple criminal investigation and the evidence will come out so he will all of the what why is it so clear why is it. so complicated mehmet it's a quite a clear case we now most of us now know it's quite a clear case of an atrocity having been carried out in the saudi consulate in istanbul and the disappearance and we believe the torture and the killing of a significant saudi critical voice so why is it so complicated why is that is that
9:33 am
is that is the turkish authorities not prepared to lay everything out on the line i don't think it's about that i think it's about the fact that you know something as simple as where the body is not known at the moment and the answer is in riyadh and at this point not to turkish i mean turkish turkish side turkey has been delivering the information to the international community as it as it becomes available turkey has kept a matter of life. has turned this into an international. issue you know to put pressure on riyadh to sort of there is answers you know i mean the simple things as well as board the body is the answer is maria ray now among those a fifteen or eighteen people who are detained it is complicated because we're not able to get answers from those people. and it is riyadh that is keeping this information away from the sure national community it is complicated because it was you know it happened in the consulate in istanbul so there is an international law
9:34 am
dimension to it as well but at this point does point. all the answers i think you know or there's two dimensions all the answers are first of all in riyadh and. if we look at it from a criminal investigation secondly it is the investigation coming to an end at this point or whether or not the investigation is actually going to begin at this point is what we need to ask because if the come investigation is coming to an and then there must be someone who will be held accountable for this crime absolutely thing . investigations actually is beginning right now i think will also depend on who is the main. actor behind aging and coming to you bill in london jeremy hunt the british foreign secretary becoming the first british minister to visit riyadh since this horrific incident as says that the process is in train at the moment in saudi arabia and he was led to believe that there will be rapid progress in making sure
9:35 am
that people are brought to justice do you believe that's true. well i think that place for public consumption i don't think that anybody thinks that the saudi judicial system or the investigative system is going to deliver a fair and open and true account of what happened to her she a brave and very generous and very noble journalist who was callous very brutally murdered to go back to the issue of how turkey has played this i think it is actually quite a simple situation the turks have they have the evidence they've been they've chosen to drip drip drip it out and you can say that's affective in terms of keeping it in the public domain but it's also very effective for present other one as a pressure tactic to play on my have been psalm on and i think that his efforts have been designed to cause maximum damage to a man's reputation indeed perhaps even to try and force him out i don't think he'll
9:36 am
achieve that but in terms of damaging his reputation yes profoundly damaged reputations and i think the saudis now are very much looking at solutions to keep him in place but to reign in all the power that he has so recklessly. abused really in terms of of what he's chosen to do and how he's chair and go about doing it he's a reckless dangerous man let's go ahead let's look a little bit more closely then at the saudi response to this whole controversy because it does appear it doesn't is to say the saudi royal household is we have ranging itself. so i think in any meaningful sense i think there has been rumors on stories about. the routine he. used. shaving. but i think the way it has happened. has done a couple of coups actually not only one coup the first one against him he's. where
9:37 am
they took power. he and his father and then the other coup against the other princes who were put in the ritz or prisons and some of them killed even and and and the business community and he also took over the whole military operators and built some of it is so anyway but usually it's about. attempts by other whales or anybody inside to remove the members coming. and he has established a rail of terror in the kingdom. everybody who opposes him just disappears so i don't think but he might i think with the help of. other friends tries to ride the storm because i think what has i think it has done probably inadvertently. is to turn this into an international and also
9:38 am
into human achievement mehmet says that's a deliberate attempt on the part of president little i think you can be deliberate it doesn't happen i mean this seems like a human wave i mean you this is not immediately you go to any person in the streets you know peace a lot anybody and they will say if you know about democracy. my grandmother everybody knew about this issue so the issue at the moment is become international human and the pressure i don't think the discernment has any protection to be damaged everybody knew he was. but everybody was also afraid if you and his money the way for example he dealt with is turned up. i mean now you see even the europeans so afraid when they make a statement they make it collectively absolutely none of their will i'm sorry bill
9:39 am
come back to you because it does seem very much is that everybody the international community is that they're being rather muted in their responses aren't they it's almost as if they're treading on eggshells they swim as if they could they're waiting for the u.s. to take the lead is that the case do you think i mean how much of a of an affront has this girl sleek crime be to the international rule based olga well i think it's been a huge or front clearly and it's a pause and repulsed. politicians and people everywhere throughout the world washington as a key player in what happens to our vince oman and the fact of the matter is that donald trump is very anxious to keep bob ensoulment in place why is that well first of all there's the peace process that question around a regime and marvin someone have called up it's a terrible offer to the palestinians there is enough to drive that peace process down their throats
9:40 am
a fact. he wants to are keep this alliance against iran cooking as does netanyahu and of course there's the issue of oil keep the price of oil manageable and trump is putting exerting pressure in that direction so he wants to keep marvin some on em play and i think he will he will think to himself well as long as this guy is useful to me i'll keep him in play but if i sense that things are swinging is so badly i've got to get rid of him i will get rid of him without a moment's thought and his showing that in terms of his own people is dumb people brutally and callously by a by tweet he won't care he won't cut m.p.'s loose by tweet but i think if the situation of cheerier it's then perhaps he will look at letting him go however as i said earlier i think mambas online will be able to ride this situation out i really do write with his powers his powers somewhat somewhat curbed meant president dead on has been very very careful hasn't he to to direct his comments his accusations
9:41 am
at the crown prince and to all miss insulate king solomon he doesn't want there to be a complete overhaul of the saudi royal family but would he be satisfied if mohamed bin sound man is sidelined that basically stays imposed i don't think turkey wants to to you know bring this situation into a matter where is the whole blame game will turn into turkey you know affected this situation and mohammed's been salada was like go i think you took you once this two to two to naturally happen as a result of the g. case but i just wanted to add to our previous guests comment. it is sure you know with regards i agree totally with regard to donald trump effect i mean mohamed to some was aggressiveness and the fact that he is not very experienced in
9:42 am
india. national arena as as opposed to some of the other leaders that he's competing with makes him a very vulnerable partner for saudi arabia and that means a lot more dependence on saudi arabia i mean on the united states and israel so they him in district the whole situation makes him a. partner that is you know very easily controlled in the region so the whole whether or not he will be replaced by by the united states i think the fact that he is seen as the father of that so-called vision two thousand and thirty that means there is an investment made on him. and this investment is not a short term investment and. if indeed the person who gave the order for this crime to be committed is never truly revealed the legacy of of your friend jamal khashoggi ironically could have really really big impact
9:43 am
couldn't it for instance that the war on yemen has come under much much closer scrutiny the blockade against castle is now being looked at apparently with a certain seriousness by the americans at least i mean there's been the the end of the u.s. refueling of that saudi fighter jets so this is having quite an impact isn't it way beyond what happened in the consulate in istanbul on the second yes as i said this is like a tsunami reminds me of the death of diana and the way it has moved people and this has also disarmed a lot of people who would have defended it so much i mean the. strength trump and others and so i think it's already to transform things and i think the issue that the person who issued the order has not been identified. is
9:44 am
known i think it's been sent everybody moves or issued the order and about the issue is how much credit if we would have but i think also turkey is right they don't want so dire a.b.h. to to collapse and but the problem might be that by leaving hama be some man in power that's when the collapse of sergei arabia because if my they should accept dump the same after of. kuwait this looks like it in the sense that has transformed the international order from the kingdom and the longer he stays in power the more so your abs influence and and moral stand he will be eroded and we don't know so there may be a by the way is a very good. it's not it's not as it appears so it might be. a good damage has already been done we're running out of time gentlemen can i go to
9:45 am
you finally bill and briefly if you would what do you think then about the suggestions that the saudi role household is realigning itself is rearranging itself and perhaps at the powers of mohammed insall man being clipped there is i think that that is what is being attempted now it's whether our been saw him on is sufficiently weakened that that going to happen he has created a culture of fear a climate of fear in saudi arabia how powerful is he well is powers have been weakened i think the ruling family wants to find a way to curtail his recklessness he's made many many wrong decision bad decisions the awful murder. is just the latest in a long string beginning you could argue with the war in yemen so yeah i think i think the ruling probably wants trying to figure out what to do with their problem child molly been so mom right can i thank you all very much indeed for
9:46 am

from both bracks its supporters and opponents in the british parliament we're going to stay in the customs union on this deal we're going to stay fit to be in large parts of the of the single market and that means it's basson states we are going to for the first time in a fountain here is this place this parliament will not have a say over the laws that govern this country it is a quite incredible state of affairs the problem here is the prime minister's not been negotiating in the nationalist press she's been negotiating what she thinks she can get past the cabinet but as i say given the first shambolic nature of the negotiations this is unlikely to be the right deal for britain optimistic words from the british press it secretary defense and it's always fun. to theresa may leads a minority government and the arithmetic looks bleak this is the beginning of the end game for breakfast before u.k. cabinet convenes a two pm on wednesday european ambassadors will digest the brics a document when they meet in brussels later in the day in

a soviet buildings were not designed to make people feel at ease. when the u.s.s.r. collapsed there was nobody to look cost of this stairwells than the entrance system out the exterior of the building so we're still in there or is in the states. unfortunately when we open the door we still step into a soviet world. what . every five. seven. my mom remembers the soviet union in a very positive way she was an engineer she was empowered once we got the

10:01 am
grill him about the soviet union it mystifies me that he doesn't feel bitter about the things it did to his family. he was only nine years old when the secret police came to their home but in eighty years the memory has not there. wasn't a moment that kind of got out of forget him. among the most elusive and we're not sure nuclear is timing and the loser. schönberg on that would have us kind of said how much is true he said when he said they're going to answer as you know american money and then i'm sure you guys think it's reassuring to think a room from children recently as the initial of three demolition a matter i don't doubt she got over it all we not that i'm always down about wash and so on isn't it usually most or newsgroups use or the times says i'm through just as a answer to your move. isn't your signature listen i'm not. somebody who's from

10:03 am
also finest how detailed their memory off the past is it struck me that my dad was still upset with the way they had to live and my mom seems to have modified her views because the more time passes. and the more i guess she realizes that she believed in an illusion. i feel sad that they have to endure. the difficult times here. when. i would get scared if i. had to bring out the children in good times oh for a change when your country has to be rebuilt again after two hundred years so folks ok patient first by the russian empire and then the soviet union.
10:04 am
in one thousand eight hundred nine this was the parliament building and people gathered here in dish thousands to protest weeks against the roof moscow. the georgian police who is overseeing the protests but actually it was the russian special forces who cracked down on them on april ninth in the middle of the night and killed twenty people mostly women. they just chased them. down in l.a. waste and some people like in the stairwell so where they were hiding where just
10:05 am
battered and killed. i was not even two years old when april nine events happened. my parents and my relatives they describe it. as. the biggest trustee committed by the soviet union in their lifetime. we still remember it and it still defines how we view the soviet union and now russia. exactly seven months later the berlin wall fell. this is the world remembers not our protesters who were killed and honestly and deliberately under the cover of darkness. please please please please this is my room i working for you to match don't is
10:06 am
a photographer who covered to build up to the ninth of april my past is collected in negatives not only in files i mean digital but real negatives which was not present when the soviet army attacked but he took a picture in the days that followed that has become a symbol of our resistance to the soviet union it was shot from top you know what about the protesters did they realize what they were doing the protesters were from seventeen through twenty five mainly all youngsters but i mean there's a ninety percent there on there is only girls or because there were some kind of show they are part of this a bunch of show it was criminal act for people who were going to as they were seen to have a. result like sex it was a. size of power. this woman was not. just one but as. you know never say just because she is young but the good intentions with the rule
10:07 am
to the hill sometimes and you know this it happened doesn't moscow or as an apology for sending in special forces then nobody wanted to kill somebody in the. all died in stampede or twenty ladies died but due to the us speaks you no one has ever hit them but there were wounded but there were no killings but if you want to live now in the soviet union if you want to have a good soviet union i don't know hearts to imagine soviet union as a place where a person would be happy oh my god don't like good people they're so happy i remember mine because my all i got brain of all shit when the six are really right but the countries that went towards western values developed better the countries that stuck to the ideology of russia and soviet union what's wrong with that i'm
10:08 am
sure we have two hundred years under russia and we were able to put the parents in the unhappiness oh my good said she your point if you'll please keep this point if you really are why do you ask me and that's why so what i am asking otherwise because it's a broke idea it was history of our country our beloved country georgia so if you want to expels these pages of history from your mind to offer your history that means you are doing where you were wrong think you know because if you are expelling your past if you demolished your past you will never have a future. well. i felt angry because the moscow had an opportunity and these protests peace will be . a hero very much riad again i think that it was unfair that russia was the was making decisions for us and he doesn't recognize that russia owes us an apology i
10:09 am
think that russia owes its an apology for sending in troops a crackdown on people who did nothing wrong nothing wrong. u.t. and my parents lived through turbulent times following the end of soviet rule. georgia today is far from perfect but it has come a long way since one nine hundred eighty nine and it seems inconceivable that people could still miss such a repressed and repressive past. in theory this a few patients and thirty years ago. in practice the occupation continues.
10:10 am
i've never been here before and somehow that nobody ever mentions this building and every time i traveled outside the city i saw you then i always wonder what it is. we tried to shut our minds to the existence of the soviet mournin some buildings but the reality is they still dominated our lives is there were meant to. they squat on the hillsides of our towns and cities as if and waiting the return of their soviet masters. to give you the e.-ring impression that our world is this temporary one and it is the soviet one that is permanent. but most of all it's the block's row after row street after
10:11 am
street perhaps it seems strange if you have never lived in one but it is these blocks that have left the d.p. scar on me. this block is quite elaborate. is an expert architecture he has publicly supported the preservation of these buildings. quite spacious yanks better think. of their own needs color and. we're going operated on the writer. it was. already. nine when the u.s.s.r. collapsed so there was no want to run the government to remember.
10:12 am
we're on the bridge. so. i grew up in one of the buildings that was built in the seventy's during the soviet union and i wrong that i'm dreaming about the time when this buildings will be demolished is it fair to say let's just say it raises this painful history. you know i don't think it's right and i don't think it's possible first of four buildings they are just buildings in rome. their buildings which keep their memory all tried to be our long humans like concentration camps in germany are kept in order to be reminding the you know about the history of government buildings and then monuments they seem to inspire all their wants to just scare people like are what the what did they want to do you have of course one of the means to show the
10:13 am
power of the state has always been architecture it was always there mean to show your own people that they are small they are a leo and they should be afraid of the state to tell your people that we are great . in georgia our monolithic architecture is not the only permanent reminder of the soviet union. the man who ruled in moscow from one nine hundred twenty four to one nine hundred fifty three was not the russian george just most famous son. joseph stalin in. gori east on his hometown. it's to celebrate ceased birthday and at its heart it hosts george just off the
10:14 am
shore star newseum. outside the museum his parents' home has been preserved so we can see his humble beginnings. when you enter you face styling and it makes you look up and admire him it's designed that way it makes you feel like he's great and he must be respected. while a pair of child who are listed with the robot is really better off what scientists . publish your book is. well as a sign to be lonely i'm going to. find ever saw one so want to remember. and look something remarkable that's iraq from the big. other least i can promise i don't hate lives that are that happened on book or other earlier but. i thought
10:15 am
maybe he pleased. with the mugger and she'll be mine smoke by the room we are quiet because the children grab them by gram. interval. is so good cigarettes. are but that's you consequence of virtue says she nearly where you want graham moments you have minds really thinking to say it's about eskimos only on a quest remember. gandhi did this to show. i don't need can be a bus train left me so very. good i parked at the factory girl not about this and i'm not altogether much but given what i want this i realise i used . to be cultured and oh i was half human it's how it is so not silly reese darren my toes are curved to go she whom needs about graham partly a story or. opportunity in the period when the pushy should be done its
10:16 am
work or people you're on. just hold a brush beside me the hard way. even if its curator says it's not trying to do so the museum still seems to be glorifying study. its ninety nine percent about the greatness of stalin and somewhere hidden is the one percent about how cruel he was and how many people he killed. they make you circle around his death must the same we do at funerals. they make you mourn him they make you take part in his death ritual. even this room like you come in and you feel that his presence like he did feel here
10:17 am
he's dead and we should be sorry for it. i cannot help but feel how deeply scarred we are by our past we live in a country dominated by soviet more newmans and i caused but we still try to ignore what really happened here unfortunately escaping your past is not that easy. stories of life. and spiration. a series of show documentaries from around the world. that celebrate the human spirit. against the arts. al-jazeera selects hunted. the strength of al

10:22 am
is very different georgia had the misfortune to sit at the axis of empires and we were seldom strong enough to resist our powerful may burst. for the last two hundred years these invaders have come from the north first the russian empire and then the soviet one. behind these once grand facades the soviet terror operatives snow as the cheka began. a few georgians want to engage with this history and it is slowly being raised by indifference and decay. solve that is an organization that is trying to preserve these sites or at least
10:23 am
document them before they disappear you know is a check a house it's a man. and from here or toss a prisoner stressed out and and so there was a interrogation and also there was a space and there was this fresh prawn completely dark and without them but on which was. face for say torture is the blood this time was nine twenty four in august the entire so it uprising started and soviet authorities charts a part of the cut prison there says every ranch in all of georgia yes i'm going for . hours and her son was killed during his face one week twenty eight total guests street of september into the. way. the we are now in the basement of such
10:24 am
a house it's a. prison cell it was a place for say no must or char sometime killing off and would be like us who provides from the assault on us yes it's just prison thought we think it's origin along when the first time meant this room war was screen and on say world you can find say inscriptions of say prisoners or we're sitting here in ninety twenties and ninety's. and do people actually know now what the story of this building generally our society absolute phantasm. kind that was in that line. i think we actively avoid dealing with our past. this has always been the mindset of my parents' generation. they were born into
10:25 am
and soviet union which was against people asking questions and curiosity go to into trouble. even though the u.s.s.r. collapsed their mindset hasn't changed. in two thousand and four the ministry of the interior opened the cheka and k.g.b. files to the public. but neither my parents nor my grandfather have come here to find out what happened to his grandfather in one nine hundred thirty seven. like so many georgians their anxiety is that someone they knew perhaps even a family member might have been involved. call me as a sign that it's like they were there. and we know how they how we. really only
10:26 am
saw commission to those you don't need me to sort through. the documents are all in russia and. if you don't know there's zero as well as the interviewing local it's not all everyone has. done the same day. which. we just found a document so my father's great grandfather. was in the us so hussein's son was a sentence on the twenty sixth of october nineteenth thirty seven. band he was executed on the twenty nine seventy seven is something people he was executed as number thirty one. and. he was executed but to me
10:27 am
but my grand father felt that he was actually taken to tbilisi for execution so they have no idea what happened but it doesn't say why he was killed what had to do to deserve death. well now we are going to have a bigger document that says like the has all the details about this case. now you're felicitous most of them did go commit yourself to. your. local community to question your treatment. he was accused of plotting. some protest an action against the government but gun action the. shooting. got see your vote a little color should. be tryna be so. good to live. because now you see it wasn't almost.
10:28 am
done this in this year one thousand nine hundred thirty thousand cuts then thousand people were executed by the soviet interior ministry so there were very busy killing people and we still want that used. that's why they called this period great terror period of great terror. it has been eighteen years since my grandfather's grandfather was killed but i think that finding the truth still matters i feel it helps us to understand why and how we were controlled as a country. i love heavily the comment there was sort of a kind of i don't know her memories are of a holiday here and it was a chance for the challenger. in order to move.
10:29 am
to cuba as. it really shouted at all on the at the top schumacher list but. a more general should of true well get on the tardy side is from the part of the audi. i don't talk. about i'm not oh so cool like you know it all people like you almost a chapter about survival don't follow me todo that. important. how do i look without medical all this. but i live in a god that really don't want to miss. what it was the only thing you got was your arm all over the house or something. but a palm tree as it was a cold was the body of. the girl who then i showed her the horrors.
10:30 am
ensued. the time or evil. and there go. well. i mean those are. also. i feel it weight has been lifted for my family we have taken back our memory from the soviets but there are parts of the soviet legacy that i fear will never be within our control in august two thousand and eight i was traveling from tbilisi when all of a sudden carse came to a standstill. when we started to see the georgian military rushing in the same direction as on its own was like what could be happening it was
10:31 am
so scary we turned on the radio and found out that war broke out on the border with russia the russian tanks were rolling from the south the said directly way region to tbilisi they were on the edge off invading the capital of georgia. the coasts unbelievable. russia claim to be supporting south assented independence but it coincided with georgia holding a vote on joining nato a clear challenge to russian power. this is one of the villages that is closest to. the divide between file society and georgia proper i feel that i have to be very cautious because i have heard many stories of people being
10:32 am
picked up by the russian military just because they go too close to the barbed wires. i just like of all the other georgians the thing. said tex part of our country so is a little strange. being kept out of your territory. south to cross into georgia but very few georgians screw the way at least. twins of with. it is a pretty good tommy love. so he says. he needs. the approval of his boss to let us through for security reasons the car is going to escort us to and from. where.
10:33 am
the feeling that you get is so mixed off anger and fear that you're approaching a hostile place but it's actually your own country. there are blacks. i was only allowed a couple of minutes at the border and your presence here soon draws attention. to weeks after the war russia recognized south a certain independence. twenty percent of our land was occupied annexed by russia. barbed wire started appearing in villages the border the breakaway regions the villages split into the residents about how this house might be related if a person dies on the other side these residents have to spend weeks to get permits
10:34 am
and go over there. so it makes people's lives very different. controlled by the soviet union or controlled by russia are for me indistinguishable . the order still come from moscow. in georgia we may have freed ourselves from soviet rule but we seem incapable of freeing ourselves from the soviet mindset. perhaps this is because the soviets infiltrated our georgian identity so completely. this memorial the chronicle of georgia just outside to be d.c. depicts heroic moments from our long history.
10:35 am
emotionally as a georgian i am still caught up in the power of its imagery. but it is the more new man sanctioned by the soviet state. it was built to make us believe we were free when we were not. sometimes you have to look elsewhere for answers to your own problems there is another country that was ruled from moscow and at the same time had to come to terms with its own troubled past. berlin was the capital of germany
10:36 am
during the rule off one of the twentieth century's other murderous totalitarian movements the nats. of the german his defeat in one thousand nine hundred five thirteen was split in half at the brandenburg gate. east germany was never officially a soviet state but it took its orders from moscow and berlin stormed out streets where an ideal setting for stalin to express his architectural drawings. the soviets did not scar germany in quite the same way as they did my country but the nazis did. some of their buildings have been preserved but the symbols have been almost entirely erased. in
10:37 am
east berlin the air ministry became the headquarters of the soviet military and then the east german state. this was because where we moved they were soon replaced with another form of iconography. for me as a former soviet subject this seems like swapping one tyranny for another. but this is not the prevailing view in germany. you. this soviet occupation is few differently here i would say that in germany we have that culture of respect so we are still using even buildings from the nazi time so from an intellectual point of view if you reach this point that you can divide. the building its construction and its design from the content and its political
10:38 am
ideas you can find a new function for the building but you should somehow documents its history i want to those people who like feel angry ex buildings do you think that young people here would agree with you. you know the young to the youngest generation. called them the wall is something which is an experience of the herons of the grandparents so it's quite far away that the should be aware that the socialist time was a time of repressions and today we might use those ridiculous from the nazi time off from the from the socialist time to educate the young generation to show them what kind of freedom they can lift today. germany has shown that these painful memories of the past need to be acknowledged.
10:39 am
the holocaust memorial sits in the heart of burning and leaves the visitor in no doubt as to what happened here. the generation responsible for the war have all but disappeared. germany still remembers the terrible price of under strain nationalism. i wonder if this is the lesson that can only be learned to defeat. soviet berlin's most symbolic structure was the wall built in one thousand sixty one in response to mass defections from east germany when the wall fell a section was preserved and artists from east and west where commissioned to painted that stadium. to be of the muslim. and moscow based on. this was one of them would like. to take our t.v. . because i still like
10:40 am
a stylish two with this will really. be paula's new because it's a good step would usually do you wouldn't change your tune us probably like me personally but that me think. of the main the. many russians like irina moved to germany after one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. there are no clear figures but it is estimated that over a million became german sits. at to understand the oil. this is to say you will not want to deal with the nuance of. my outlook and your chin had a shot then you would. not. be stupid to move to
10:41 am
the most the most of them did it is that you would she would just go in there with this in the middle of the deal if it was then when the going. call on you. was. the cause of the spears what should somebody new at the come with. a group we didn't use in the budget you know but just this is. the one who was there was a difference. brushwood for the first time in that this is part of the you know notables that you. move. through. the. field in the us but is. it enough attitude both to the wall and to the soviet union are for me but also for cohen answers. the soviet union never stopped trying to sell itself as
10:42 am
a union of equals but it never was. berlin is home to many hundreds of thousands of russians. every year on the ninth of may they come to trump tower park in berlin to celebrate soviet victory day. after two thousand and three we stopped celebrating the ninth me and i'm very happy about it because it was not georgia swore it was a war that georgia second france a lot for but we would not be in this war if we were not occupied by the soviet union. overhearing their conversations and the things they're saying to their children is suggesting that for them this is more than liberating germans they're making it seem like it's russia's stick to. this is for them an
10:43 am
opportunity to express their imperialistic dreams. they're still dreaming about a time when russia was so powerful that it could come all the way to berlin. the most uncomfortable thing for me is to witness the bikers known as the knights wolves. they stand for everything i think should be condemned the occupation in ukraine the annexation of crimea and the continued occupation of georgia and seeing them celebrating victory day was like they were promoting the imperial ideals of russia. i feel that the victorious atmosphere that was there was distasteful for me it's like
10:44 am
dancing on the grave of an enemy you killed like. it's really not necessary and i'm really happy that the georgia flag is not here it's just the russian flag and soviet flags. how do we deal with the scars of far past we cannot erase them i accept that but i don't think you should celebrate them either. finding out about what really happened to my family has helped my grandpa my parents and me. but watching the russian triumphalism here today makes me realize how unlikely it is that my country will ever be truly free. and without that freedom it's hard for me to see how our scarse can ever fade.
10:45 am
a rite of passage preserved through the generations my cousin was laying down there until a screaming she was helpless the woman who after endorses goes through cycles of pain for that menai meets the women affected by g.m. and those reshaping perception this ng people will abandon this even through it a bit to them to take al-jazeera correspondent the con.

10:47 am
this sort of weather so incoming winter and as will be shown by snow to the sites when you inject the cold air of the gulf of mexico it tends to increase the rain over mexico itself that is certainly case the line is there and the focus brings the rain into yucatan and further south as well. it is murder when you throw a fire bomb into someone's home and me shit eating off trash you know the next not insignificant in the embers that insignificant ideologically the insignificant evil is a crime gag down very significant by dictating big government and the fucked up policy the dow's shalt not kill part of the radicalized series on al-jazeera.
10:48 am
al-jazeera. where every. for many years i kept my past a secret but every time violent extremism is mentioned it bothers me. how could i believe that we were superior how could i beat up other women want to if they really had started a race war. how far would i have gone looking in the mirror to confront the past x eight a witness documentary on al-jazeera. this is al-jazeera.
10:49 am
loads the whole raw but you're watching the al-jazeera news a lot of what had caused us here in doha coming up in the mix sixty minutes. palestinian factions ingalls or agree to a cease fire deal with israel to end the worst flare up of violence it bugs. the u.k. or the e.u. agreed to draft a brics deal up to months of negotiations but all but cut it gets approval public. but it was part of a. also new images off a possible truth about how a saudi hits what might have prepared journalist about the show she's murder. and the search for bodies continues in california as hundreds of baby missing in the deadliest wildfires in the state's history. welcome to the new palestinian groups including hamas have announced
10:50 am
a cease fire with israel after an escalation in violence threaten to descend into full blown war they issued a joint statement promising to abide by the egyptian brokered truce as long as israel does the same there's been no official announcement from the israelis the latest round of violence began on sunday when a covert israeli operation led to the killing of seven palestinians and one israeli soldier then twenty four hours of palestinian rocket fire from gaza and israeli air strikes killed eight people. hurry falls that has the latest from the israeli community of the heart of the border with gaza. night full on tuesday brought celebrate three demonstrations in gaza victory being publicly declared most of the palestinian armed factions announced that a cease fire had been reached with israel. the uncertain line separating military escalation from all out war has been approached several times
10:51 am
in the last few months but never as close as in the last few days this hamas video purporting to show a barrel of rocket fire unrivaled in intensity even on any single day in the three previous gaza wars israel responding with scores of air strikes on the strip targeting what it said were hamas and islamic jihad linked buildings even if they lay within built up civilian areas israel typically doesn't respond to palestinian announcements of a cease fire however the israeli media did quote an unnamed official saying that israel would respond according to events on the ground that after a six hour meeting of the israeli security cabinet which ended in a terse statement saying that the israeli military would act as necessary. that at least leaves room for both sides to pull back before the damage and loss of life in gaza and in israel began to build a momentum towards war that could have and could still become inescapable the reason why we're seeing conflict after conflict of
10:52 am
a few years in gaza is that the underlying causes of the tensions the occupation of gaza the rockets which of course we condemn flying out of gaza your compassion these things are not addressed. this round began with a covert israeli incursion gone wrong on sunday night killing seven palestinian fighters and one israeli soldier up until that point there had been rare signs of hope in the territory electricity flowing in a way not seen in years qatari money allowed in to pay at least partially civil servant salaries israeli prime minister has defended the measures saying they could lead to stability and avoid an unnecessary and costly war both sides then have much to lose from allowing this dangerous exchange to devolve into something worse but they also have domestic political pressure which can act in the opposite direction . this was a protest against the ceasefire in the border town of steroids on tuesday israeli prime minister under pressure to demonstrate he isn't ceding ground undermining
10:53 am
israeli to terence by stepping back from war are a force at al-jazeera know how it was in southern israel israel's ambassador to the u.n. says security council members must condemn what he called his aggressive actions against his country. we take action to protect our people and we continue to do that unfortunately danger there you are the math regime that they are continuing to dig tunnels they continue to think about ways to attack israel and we will continue to take any measure no measure necessary to protect our people regarding that the future of our porch is very clear if you do not be quiet in israel you to not be quiet in gaza and i think the hamas leaders know exactly what are the capabilities of all the very i.d.f. and they know we can get to them even if they hide beneath tunnels and beneath hospitals our diplomatic get into james bays has been following developments from
10:54 am
the united nations well as we see him many times before there's no unity on the security council regarding the israeli palestinian issue and diplomats are telling me they think it's unlikely the security council even be able to agree the words of a statement at the end of their meeting of course the bigger issue is the wider peace between the israelis and palestinians and there the u.s. have made it clear that everyone else in the international community should wait for their peace plan which is being devised by president trump son in law gerrard cushion or some diplomats are getting somewhat frustrated by this very long wait for this peace plan was this a growing problem i asked the french ambassador to the u.n. francois the lark he told me i think it's a fair question that you should address to jerad questioner and our american friends phyllis bennis is director of the new internationalism project at the institute for policy studies she says there is no accountable way to hold parties
10:55 am
to their word on a ceasefire. clearly the interests of people in the gaza strip as well as the israelis on the other side of the girl's offense have an interest in a ceasefire but the israeli government has made clear that it's not at all a done deal that it isn't necessarily mostly concerned about the possibility of casualties or anything else in terms of a cease fire this is about occupation this is about the continuing occupation of the gaza strip in a different form certainly than the occupation of the west bank we have soldiers in the main surrounding and besieging gaza only entering on occasion as they did on sunday in the israeli special forces went into the gaza strip. an operation which may have intended to be an assassination operation and if it wasn't intended it became an assassination opportunity and that was what led to this most recent.
10:56 am
clash we're certainly dealing primarily with a much larger problem and that is that the united states has made clear that it will continue to support and defend the israeli occupation of the west bank and gaza and occupy peace to resume no matter how how much israel violates international law or violence human rights etc and in that context there's very little pressure being brought to bear on his you know there's no external pressure at all being brought to bear on the israeli state on the israeli government are the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. after months of negotiations the united kingdom and the european union her phony reached a framework agreement for brics that according to the office of the prime minister to resign. it will still leave political approval though for both the british and european sides and it's already facing stiff resistance from members of may's own party and crucial coalition partner the d u p paul president has more. the prime minister needs all the support she can get at the moment and
10:57 am
a selected group of her government ministers were brought to downing street on tuesday night to read the text of the negotiated breck's a divorce deal for themselves to date six government ministers have already quit over the way bracks it has been negotiated how many of the current cabinet will choose to follow suit once the bracks it term sinkin and even if cabinet unity is maintained leaked details of the draft agreement have provoked howls of outrage from both bracks its supporters and opponents in the british parliament we're going to stay in the customs union of this deal we're going to stay fit to be in large parts of the of the single market and that means it's vassal states we are going to for the first time in a found years of this place this parliament will not have a say over the laws that govern this country it is a quite incredible state of affairs the problem here is the prime minister's not been negotiating in the nationalist press she's been negotiating what she thinks she can get past the cabinet but as i say given the first shambolic nature of the
10:58 am
negotiations this is unlikely to be the right deal for britain optimistic words from the british press it secretary defense team it's always hard. to theresa may leads a minority government and the arithmetic looks bleak this is the beginning of the end game for breakfast before u.k. cabinet convenes a two pm on wednesday european ambassadors will digest the brics a document when they meet in brussels later in the day in a statement the e.u.'s chief negotiator michel barnier cautioned that the text has stabilised but has not yet finalized we are making progress he said but we're not there yet paul brennan al-jazeera. told the list as deputy director of thing to british influence he's skeptical about trees mais ability to push through the latest deal. she has very little chance of getting this deal three because the deal is hated by always that parliament the labor party will vote against it because it
10:59 am
doesn't deliver on the exact same benefits that was promised originally and the other opposition parties will vary with them the d.p. the democratic unionist party which holds up the government of the moment will vote against it because it introduces regulatory barriers between great britain or the not and the heartbreaks it wearing a jacob reese bog boris johnson etc will vote against it because it keeps the u.k. in the customs union and they remain supporting tories will vote against it because it gives us a much less influence i also is very very bad services if the cabinet doesn't approve it that it doesn't even get to parliament so she has to try and sweet talk the terms of her government but really she has to tell them different things she has to tell the remain supporters there'll be a softer exit draft so they leave supports in the leave ministers in her government and they will leave the customs union as soon as the transition period ends in twenty twenty so she really can't get away with it eventually she'll have to be honest about what is still means and want to get through parliament when she does.
11:00 am
the turkish media have published what they say are x. ray images showing the coltons of suitcases code by the hit squad that killed. shoji us a national security advisor john bolton has suggested that all due recordings don't link prince but have been sold to the croydon. side the saudi consulate in istanbul. these latest images so for example so range is believed to have possibly been used either to subdue you or possibly even kill him that's falls in line with the narrative that we received dissolved a zero on this case when we broke the news that jamal specialty was killed and it was after he entered shortly that he was injected with something prior to his body being dismembered they show for example a taser they show a jamming device used to jam communications in the immediate area of when and where it's operated as well as quote closed circuit communication devices that would make it's hard for communication between those teams to be tapped into while they are

11:04 am
foreign powers backing opposite sides to serve their own conflicting interests the palermo conference saw no written commitments nothing signed the un envoy is a clear path forwards then appears to be based on little more than trust john a whole al-jazeera lomo italy. well plenty of overhead here all the al-jazeera news are including the sri lankan supreme court new twist in the constitutional crisis gripping the country also one of the world's most notorious drug lords goes on trial in the united states. and the bad old libya hosting international matches leaves them struggling to qualify for the africa cup of nations sports story with peter later. firefighters of the northern california had heard of paradise recover more bodies
11:05 am
from what's already the deadliest wildfire in the history of the u.s. state forty two people have big killed and hundreds more missing that's just one of several fires burning across the state in southern california firefighters are struggling to contain the walls the fire it's already claimed two lives the left a trail of destruction the beach resorts including malibu with the continue to threaten areas from los angeles south to sudden diego carol to tell you. in the forests of northern california night bring three little responded and these firefighters have been working on multiple fronts and this is my first day on the fire it's been going for about three days now but i spent the first two to three days just dealing with the threat to my own home in my own community and then to come out here i mean this is the calling in the nearby town of chico some of the quarter million people forced to flee their homes across the state are now
11:06 am
wondering what the future holds we will rebuild. one step at a time they were rebuild our home he will be a part of rebuilding that town because it's a few happen. and you know thank you so much everybody's been so wonderful just have to count our blessings. and not count the losses. but there have been so many losses this is what's left of paradise more than two hundred people a still missing investigators now combing through the debris and ashes of this incinerated town and. some bodies have been found and gutted cause the flames moving faster than they could drive to my being brought in to help identify the dead but officials warn finding bodies could take weeks as of today an additional thirteen human remains have been recovered which brings the total number to forty two if i understand that makes this the deadliest fire in the history of the united
11:07 am
states a wild land fire in history united states south in los angeles county the hills are still smoking the fire here is only ten percent contained. in parts of malibu some residents are returning to the scorched slopes my neighbors se my house was in for then it would be here there's lots of. areas here that member and they came over here with water buckets and put out fires and. she's very very grateful to them for sure. others stayed to defend their own homes when the fire came over the hill here and there was about sixty mile an hour plus turn pitch black the firestorm came over after that just right around and put out fires. but not all the fires have been pushed out and with no rain forecast and strong winds still blowing
11:08 am
there's nothing to stop them burning. al-jazeera. and he sees jennifer clinton joins us now live from oak park in california. as the sun sets so we can show our international viewers now how uncompromising this all these blazes are because these fires continue to be difficult to contain especially when there are three main ones really running north to south of the state in what is the situation as choose day ends and wednesday is just around the corner. yeah it's going to it's been a very difficult day with the wind blasting through this area it is a dry when it is relentless and it is also erratic it's been surrounded and it's difficult to predict what it will do next what we've seen are flare ups all day long along the flanks of the wolf the fire you mentioned
11:09 am
a ten percent containment line at one point it was up to thirty five percent contained but i know this fire has jumped containment lines in some areas it is spread in ways they had not predicted of there was a massive massive firefight from the air they had a d.c. nine tanker they had a c one thirty military plane that's retrofitted to carry fire retardant and drop it on neighborhoods flying so low it was like it was like an air show but a fierce fierce air show with fire below really frightening to watch but amazing just how quick the flames were doused by those massive amounts of water being dumped on the people standing there on their on their driveways watching this happening because they had some of them come back to their neighborhood some people coming back to nothing others coming back to their houses still standing and no one knowing what the differences why their houses there and their neighbors not so you've touched on the fact of what the rescue services the recovery services that
11:10 am
surely do in terms of the results is. there enough to be fighting these blazes all on several fronts come the federal government today any shape will fold still help in any shape or full. if it's difficult to know how many different agencies are actually here we're here los angeles we saw san francisco fire trucks driving by we know we have fire trucks coming in from many states and the air resources are huge there they're coming in from all over and we actually have two planes on lease from canada that come every year that are super super they can just they they don't even have to land they just scoop water up off the reservoir and turn around and drop it onto neighborhoods so the resources are there it's just the manpower and just the sheer size of this fire
11:11 am
and the one up north it's stretching very thin firefighters have been on these lines for days and days with no breaks in sight but this is what they do and this is what they're good at and unfortunately they have had lots of practice indeed is worrying such events as they can get control of it very very soon for the body but jennifer thanks for joining us from california southeast asian leaders so beating is a good tool for the asean summit parts of the agenda can both be about during a crisis with the country's neighbors expected to call for full accountability for those responsible for atrocities in states where he is our correspondent joins me from the. poll of polls other issues might be topping the agenda let's just begin with the issues in the last year we had the malaysian prime minister vocally criticizing. counterparts now we have
11:12 am
a new malaysian prime minister will be a serious. well so from what we have seen so far the answer to that is absolutely yes mohammed the malaysian prime minister has really led criticism from within us of me and mine and its handling of the rigging your situation and that will be discussed over the next couple of days particularly because this repatriation process is supposed to begin this week with some reading coming back from bangladesh to me and. has said in the past that it supports that repatriation process it says it wants humanitarian assistance provided as well and a reconciliation process to begin once that repatriation process is underway but specific criticism of me and and of aung san suu kyi very much led by the malaysian
11:13 am
prime minister on tuesday he said someone who has been detained before should know the sufferings and should not inflict it on the hapless of course a reference there to sujit herself being detained by the military when me and my was under military rule and for us to criticize me and which is it is expected to do to an extent in that final communique delivered by singapore was promised at least may seem like an obvious thing to do but it is significant given that this grouping has a policy of noninterference in and its members internal affairs particularly when it comes to human rights and of course the fundamental issue of this group over the decades that it's been established is that it is an economic group it talks about the economics of work so they want to work together as an economic book similar to that of the e.u. what are the issues regarding the economy will they be concerned about certainly the china u.s. spat at the moment will have some sort of knock on effect for them to.
11:14 am
well absolutely so far trade has very much been topping the agenda with the speeches that we've seen from the leaders we also have to remember this is not just an aussie on summit it is also an east asia summit so we have the russian president vladimir putin him we have south korea's president in japan's prime minister shinzo out there and so on so very much trade around the region is top of the agenda in particular the trade dispute between china and the united states and notable for their absence u.s. president donald trump and china's president xi jinping although president xi is going to the asia pacific economic cooperation summit in popular new guinea this week donald trump is skipping that one as well so there is a sense of perhaps a missed opportunity for the u.s. by not having donald trump present at these two summits this week both here in singapore and in pop when you get me so yes the dispute between china and the u.s.
11:15 am
is very much top of the agenda here singapore's prime minister lee hsien loong in his opening speech on tuesday said that he senses that the men the nations of being pulled in different directions because of this dispute and again the malaysian prime minister mahathir mohamad said that they could be a domino effects with what is going on in the u.s. he didn't specifically refer to the u.s. but it is clear exactly who he was talking about he said he's worried that other developed countries could adopt similar approaches that we are seeing in the u.s. by imposing tariffs on developing countries like the us young member states so there is a lot of concern about what is going on between china and the u.s. so well for them i believe by way of course the day develops thanks very much. well still had hail the al-jazeera news are double trouble to play with he takes a u. turn as he mocks the french president's approval ratings on twitter. just as the national hockey league has to settle claims that the head injuries the action
11:16 am
