a roadside bomb targeting tourists has killed at least four people near the gives it permits in egypt clued three vietnamese tourists and. it's been no claim of responsibility. the syrian army says it's entered the northern city of man but just to being invited in by syrian kurds fearing an attack by turkey the u.s. military disputes that claim. protests over the exclusion of three areas from sunday's election have continued for a second day in eastern parts of the democratic republic of congo the election commission's decision is facing a legal challenge from the presidential candidate. more now on that attack in egypt . is a senior fellow at the potomac institute for policy studies he says the targets in this attack and the timing of it send the new message. they have done some things but i don't believe they are enough to really control the whole phenomenon of
radicalism or the action usually from the egyptian government is against the order of is focused on the security dimension of the problem and also on the political dimension like political islam but they have some limitations in advising the ideological component even though president the sisi himself at the several times but the deal religious scholars are very reluctant. are very reluctant to take activist tapes to the weekend and the fired this ideology correctly and without fighting the ideology all of the efforts you do will be in vain or will be not effective because their ideology can bring another cases for over as long as you treat it is very significant because number one it occurred before the new year eve and this is very significant the obvious is already kills all the
terrorists wants to hit the economy hardly and this is the beginning of a change also for the target remember in the last a few couple of years there was not a single at back against the tourists for two years and the main mainly the attacks were again is the security forces and the military now they are shifting the targets or this is frightening by itself it's carrying a new message israel's prime minister binyamin netanyahu is in brazil and is promising stronger bilateral ties he's been meeting the far right president elect. in our own religion era it's the first visit by an israeli premier to the country there was no mention of brazil's anticipated move of its embassy to jerusalem gentleman has more from sao paolo. incoming brazilian president to abel sonando has been looking to strengthen ties with israel for some time and the visit on thursday
by israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu in some ways to culmination of now this is not a smooth deal for israel the support of brazil remember that this is the biggest economy in south america the incoming brazilian president himself why is he done this is certainly a break with previous administrations in the last few years in brazil now perhaps among the chief reasons is that of president trump and his administration in the united states table so not oh as long seen him as a sort of kindred spirit that both right wing populists they both like to use social media rather than the press to get their message out and they both to cry what they would probably see as political correctness now obviously the united states has moved their embassy to jerusalem but something that in the past incoming president wilson out of his own so pledged to do and that sort of support will be
very welcome to the israeli prime minister as you hear now. it's the first visit by an israeli prime minister who was over here. and it's hard to believe that the context for. you because. the brother. you mention is really. competitive great question is what is the problem with. the problem this is a bit of a change to brazil the leftist of ministrations that have governed it for most of the twenty first century so far favored the two state solution and showed some support for palestine the country was formally recognized as a sovereign state in brazil in two thousand and ten and in many ways this is something that i. we're also not always well would like to break with the past people like to leave his own legacy and support for israel is part of that how is
it going to affect him and certainly not all positively in the arab nations this isn't going to be a message it's going to be very well well current and brazil actually sells a lot of allow me and also chicken through many of those countries so this is going to be something that's not going to be all positive for brazil we have to see how it plays out and how want to use president of the country that's going to happen on the first of january joy able so not oh look to handle that relationship with israel and also with palestine a palestinian protester in gaza has been shot dead by israeli forces eight others were wounded by live bullets or rubber coated steel rounds more than five thousand people demonstrated after friday prayers at the border fence regular protests have been held since march palestinians are demanding the right to return to their ancestral lands controlled by israel the palestinian authority says two hundred forty five people have been killed since demonstrations began
