outsized decision to manage u.s. foreign policy there is a growing sense in the u.s. congress both among republicans and democrats that congregational leaders need to be engaged as well and how the u.s. deals with other countries engages in other crises and spends foreign policy money this is a sense of restructuring a balance between the two branches of government they have not been seen perhaps since the late one nine hundred eighty s. . israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu is in brazil and some promising stronger by natural time he's been meeting the far right president elect and out on the janeiro is the first visit by an israeli premier to the country john home and has more from sao paolo. incoming brazilian president try able sonando has been looking to strengthen ties with israel for some time and the visit on thursday by his really prime minister benjamin netanyahu in some ways to culmination of now

8:13 am
be a message it's going to be very well well current and brazil actually sells a lot of allow me and also chicken to many of those countries so this is going to be something that's not going to be positive for brazil we'll have to see how it plays out and how once he's president of the country that's going to happen on the first of january. or not oh looks to handle that relationship with israel and also with palestine. lots more still ahead on al-jazeera including volatile democratic republic of congo braces for a much delayed election. and fears of violence after a tense run up to sunday's parliamentary vote for have a live update. probably once again welcome to another look at the international forecast the weather is

8:18 am
escalating now terrorism functions in an interesting way terrorist groups traditionally target security apparatus the police and the military which was what inside bite from the stick but one joint isolate start targeting any symbols of the state the third stage that terrorist groups usually do or enter into is when they start attacking civilians and in this case tours and this is what they have been doing for the past year they've moved out of their safe territory for them which was the sinai and now they're going right by the fear of it's they're signaling to things to the state that they are in the heart of egypt and to egyptian society that they have something to fear terrorism is about instilling fear in the hearts of people so they can start to change their behavior tourists will not come and secondly egyptians will start to ask for things of their country of their government that are exactly what the terrorist group wants.

the army and the paramilitary have been called in to provide security during sunday's general election in bangladesh campaigning for the vote has ended with more violence and arrests the opposition bangladesh nationalist party says nineteen activists have been held ahead of sunday's vote police say a supporter of the ruling our army lead who was killed government is accused of arresting more than eight thousand opposition members since november for this let's cross over to tel aviv charlie joins us from dakar so elections are supposed to take place do people feel that they're going to get a free election. well now it's a question everybody asks that journalists in the street one another you know whether there is going to be a free election what we saw the last two weeks is not a typical election in jubilation or celebration in the streets of bangladesh rather the marked with violence attack on opposition members in many cases against the
8:20 am
ruling party members several people were killed on both sides but brian logic cutting to media the fall of an hour or so says majority of that tax against opposition members at least fifty six candidates convoys came under attack many cases they were confined to their homes they were not allowed out by that to stop the ruling party and even in many cases the police took part in confining opposition candidates and not allowing them to campaign this is not a very typical we had covered election in two thousand and eight two thousand and fourteen was that one sided election we could understand but in two thousand and eight it was jubilation you don't see that yet we tried to talk to people on the camera in the streets in dhaka people don't want to talk about you know the specially the opposition members fear of reprisal there's a limited space for freedom and expression as well even within the media they had
8:21 am
made there's a self-censorship the digital security act which was passed just barely two months ago is discouraging people to debate on issues or criticizing the government in the social media just amnesty international came out with the republic yesterday criticizing the government on those as well as in recent attacks on twelve journalists by the alleged ruling party members so all this put together there's a question about how fair is this going to be election day came under criticism from u.s. state department u.s. . human rights watch saying that there just isn't a level playing field probably opposition to. paine if you walk around the city you will never hardly see any campaign poster for the opposition most of it you can see behind me these are all the ruling party costars and the opposition barely could make out a few rallies in the capital city it's let alone in other parts of the country so considering all goes lot will depend how the people going that bullet many are
