way to avoid no deal is. a warning from britain's prime minister six days out from a crucial vote on her breasts of agreements with the e.u. and the new exhibition taking people inside the life and works of andy warhol. hello an anti-government rally has been going on in the sudanese capital khartoum keeping up the pressure on president obama to share it's a step down hours earlier but she addressed his supporters elsewhere in the city calling for unity and accusing foreign powers of stoking the unrest the demonstrations have spread right across the don since mid december they began over the rising cost of food and fuel and government corruption bashir remains defiant that you know. we are all together hand in hand joining forces to maintain
8:02 pm
stability however some are adopting foreign agendas being operated by outside forces in a means to the saddam however we reiterate those who are seeking power they are welcome however there is only one route to grab power it is the ballot box it is only through transparent free elections and it's up to you the sudanese people to decide ever more than has more from khartoum. president bashir spoke to his supporters today he basically called for this rally this pro-government rally to show the world that he still has supporters and the fact that that people have been demonstrating over the past three weeks demanding the regime change those people do not represent the whole of sudan so he came out today in a rally in one of the squares in the capital city how to swim and he said that those people who have been protesting have been infiltrated by what he called traitors and they've been were being influenced by foreign agents now this is not the first time that the president has spoken since the anti-government wave of protests started this is the sixth or seventh somebody he's been speaking yesterday
8:03 pm
he addressed the military and original state and he said that he will continue to hold on to power until elections come next year people once again came out to protest today just a few minutes after the pro-government rally they've been calling for the downfall of the government they've been calling for a new regime they said that president i'm going to show you how it has been holding on to power for too long and that it's time he had the apartment interim independent council now people have been met with tear gas police had to has used tear gas to try to disperse the protesters but this seemed to be very eager to continue with their momentum they held onto to determination and they kept basically dispersing when police fired tear gas only two other again and demand that the president resign something he said he's not going to do until elections come in twenty twenty the british government is dealing with another setback after parliament voted to reduce the time allowed to come up with an alternative plan that's if prime minister to resign deal is defeated next week the change will try to force the government to come back within three days with a plan b.
8:04 pm
rather than the twenty one days specified in law all politicians are now is abating the prime minister as you withdraw d.-o. it sets the terms of britain's the parts are on march the twenty ninth paul brennan covering the story from london to walk us through the significance of this vote. during the significance of this particular vote is that it emphasizes just how little or far exceed the prime minister theresa may has in parliament at the moment it was the second vote within twenty four hours that the government had lost they lost a vote on the finance bill related to breakfast on the tuesday night and then wednesday afternoon this second vote which essentially accelerates the process by which the government will have to come back and answer to parliament after what is expected to be a vote next tuesday in which the government will be defeated it just underlines just how little farty the government has and just how much exasperate m.p.'s on both sides have with the way the process is concluding as we're now just seventy
8:05 pm
nine days from a significant significant political day here and what are the implications for the options going forward. i mean from the point of view of what happens next frankly labor have said that they're going to put a no confidence vote in as soon as they possibly can in the whole government remember they tabled one just in the prime minister just before christmas she survived she survived that and she survived the no confidence vote of her own and piece of her own party as well the fact is though that when she is most likely defeated next tuesday and that's certainly the way the arithmetic is going it's unlikely that she'll ground a general election willingly that's what labor the opposition party would like to see that said there is a possibility under the fixed parliament act that if two thirds of the commons the
8:06 pm
parliament actually votes in favor of a no confidence motion that the government will be forced to grant a general election and of course there remains the possibility of a second referendum if the government is unwilling to grant a general election so these options are all to play for and the. and see that is surrounded bricks in the process of bricks it hasn't lifted what has come closer though is the reality of correction not just seventy nine days from now twenty ninth of march britain as it stands will be leaving the european union and potentially without any deal in place all right up auburn and thank you. now the u.n. special envoy to yemen has been updating the security council on the latest efforts to end the nearly four year war martin griffith says there has been relative calm since the implementation of these stockholm agreements i pleased to report that both sides have largely. to the ceasefire we agreed and stuck
8:07 pm
in her day the governor of that entered into force on the eighteenth of december and that there has been a significant decrease in hostilities since that. unfortunately perhaps unsurprisingly there has been some violence including in who data city and in the southern districts of the government over this is remarkably limited compared to what we saw in the weeks before the stucco consultation on the un humanitarian affairs chief mark local war and that despite that stockholm deal the humanitarian situation was getting worse. i cannot yet report to you that the wider humanitarian situation in yemen is any better it remains catastrophic more than twenty four million people now need humanitarian assistance that's eighty percent of the population they include ten million people just

8:13 pm
the u.s. actually most drugs passed through ports of entry into the united states is smuggled along with the lines of people and vehicles going through the wall wouldn't necessarily affect that but this is become a potent political symbol for the president and for his opponents in a battle that he's determined to win coming up. in just a moment hundreds of palestinian statehood i'm on the streets to fight a social security scheme they say is costing too much boss demand hang over one of the world's biggest electronics shows with fears innovators have run out of new ideas. and i bet it certainly is a very wet for many of us across the middle east at the moment we've had this weather system with us and as you can see it's giving plenty of rain over parts of
