outside forces to the saddam however we reiterate to 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. about morgan has more now from khartoum we were at both rallies both the pro-government and anti-government rallies or we've seen is police using tear gas to try to disperse protesters now have hundreds gathered demanding that president i'm going to be here resign that's something that's been going on for the past three weeks of the mentioned but we've also heard from the sudanese doctors committee apparel committee the official union of doctors in sudan they say they've got four cases of people who have been injured using live ammunition and that one of them was unclear it was in a critical condition so obviously the protests were not all peaceful where people were protesting against the government the police used tear gas and live ammunition to try to disperse crowds that hasn't stopped them sold them have made their which village slated assembly and they said that they are going to try to continue
10:03 pm
demanding president ahmed the shares are down until he does something he said he's not going to do until elections come in time to turn to he has faced protests in the past before obviously also over and over the economy but never for more than a few days and he's always used his police force to be able to disclose protesters and he at some point was able to negotiate with them eventually they were able to basically give up the demand that he step down but this is the first time that it's been going on for three weeks of his high concern and the other concern factor for him is the fact that there is nobody he can negotiate with to try to end the protest these people are being mobilized very sporadically in neighborhoods in and basically the sudanese are professional association which has been calling for the past for protest in the capital ha tomb they're not the only ones who've been calling for protest against president bashir so he doesn't know who he can negotiate with and that for him is quite a concern. the u.s. president is about to meet congressional leaders as the partial government shutdown
10:04 pm
and as it's nineteenth day donald trump says he's willing to keep the government closed until his key demand is met billions of dollars of funding for a wall between the u.s. and mexico article heinous nations from washington thank you very much u.s. president donald trump is trying new things in hopes of getting a border wall traveling to capitol hill to keep his own party on board and on tuesday giving an address to the nation from the oval office doing very well except for the border back behind the desk in front of the cameras again wednesday the u.s. president threatened to declare a national emergency if he has to in order to get a wall built on the southern border we might work a deal and if we don't i may go that route but trump is trying these new tactics in order to defend his decision to partially shut the government down until he gets billions for border wall he's trying to blame the opposition party in an attempt to change the public's opinion polls show right now the majority of americans blame the president but republican leaders in congress are still backing trump blaming
10:05 pm
democrats for the impasse on a badly needed to a moral and a little more than the span of a presidency so much better to talk about a pivot about a pivot. my democratic friends wanted fencing and physical barriers in the race. for their part democrats rolled out some of the eight hundred thousand federal workers who should be paid in two days but right now be we are the face of this shutdown we are the real people working in the bureau of prisons and the transportation security administration and other federal agencies today doing so without federal pay in this shutdown these stories will continue to dominate the headlines the economic impact will start to ripple through the economy putting additional pressure on republicans in congress the president will head to capitol hill wednesday to try and shore up their support this is an unpopular president
10:06 pm
pushing an unpopular wall but for his core supporters this was a campaign promise and one many say he simply has to keep no matter the cost. joins us live now from washington to any movement at all today. well as you mentioned the president moved up the street to capitol hill he's going to be meeting with the congressional leadership from both the democrats and republicans at the white house we believe that will happen in about fifty four minutes see if they come to any sort of agreement there is a compromise to be made but so far it seems that both sides feel like they're winning the argument so there's very little incentive for them to go ahead and make a deal because it's not just the president's base that adamantly believes that once a wall the liberal base is completely one hundred percent against it and the new leadership the dems just took back the house of representatives their leadership would be under incredible pressure if they in fact caved to this wall because in
10:07 pm
many ways i think it's become not just about a wall it's the symbolism of the trump presidency and that is a hard thing to find a compromise on so what else do we need to be looking out for the next day also. well the president made it clear today and you just heard it there he said he reserves the right to declare a national emergency he believes he absolutely has the authority to do that and just to point out there are laws that congress has said in a national emergency such as a war an attack the president can declare a national emergency and then he can move funds around that's the only way the president has any power over any money being spent now a lot of constitutional scholars say he absolutely cannot do that and they predict that if that happened there would be lawsuits in the judiciary would likely stifle the president although it is possible that he would win that really really depends on what judge gets and how far up in the chain it goes possibly all the way to supreme court that would give both sides a chance to basically declare victory fund the government reopen the government get these people paid and the president says he's going to wait and see he's said today
10:08 pm
is willing to wait for as long as it takes but he said if i can't make a deal then i might very well could declare a national emergency but i can tell you the pain is being felt by not just the federal workers the people who actually need the federal government services one of the bigger things to look out for is food stamps that program is going to be running out of funding and there are tens of millions of americans who rely on that so that they have enough to eat every day so it's not just about these eight hundred thousand employees it's about contractors they probably won't get paid back and it's about the extended work of the federal government which right now just isn't getting done and thank you very much indeed the un's special envoy to yemen has been updating the security council on the no just efforts to end the ninety four year war. says there has been relative calm since the implementation of the stockholm agreement but it's. really. for the cease fire we agreed on. in the day the governor of that entered into force. of december.

10:17 pm
should go are beginning again among the six hundred fifty m. peace at least five different groupings arguing for different outcomes and there is no sign it's all of any one shifting position so if her deal is defeated next week as i hope and expect it will will the prime minister do the right thing and let the people have a real say and call a general election. you. know we put it good deal on the table the tax jobs and security but i notice i notice. that we still don't know what brett's plan the right honorable gentleman. it's supposed to be decision time the european union's bored to death with all this yet is total gridlock as things stand at the moment parliament has decided that it doesn't want to leave the european union with no deal but apparently it doesn't
10:18 pm
like the prime minister's deal either nor can it present any sort of alternative strategy for what to do instead what it means is that if you ask any politician here or any of the journalists camped out here no one has the first clue what's going to happen next. he lends to the theory that ideas currently being ruled out may end up having to be accepted at the very least suspending the process of leaving everything is up in the end everything is implausible so when you have a series of implausible are cons one thing that is currently implausible will necessarily become the reality so even though the general election party looks very unlikely that it could happen even those that the referendum looks unlikely that it happened i don't assert that is the most part school thing to do because parliament is doug lot that makes sense to give about the people. on. the ice to the right three hundred eight the debate itself was preceded by the government's yet again losing the vote this time demanding that the prime minister say within

10:20 pm
provided by either side but south korean media has been reporting that kim met she for about an hour continue has more from beijing. kim jong un's train was seen leaving beijing this afternoon and ever since the leader arrived in beijing on monday evening this trip has been shrouded in secrecy there have been reports that the leader visited some traditional chinese medicine factory on the outskirts of beijing earlier this morning before returning to beijing to have some lunch with some top they doing officials possibly even president xi jinping himself but we have received nor details about the visit from either the north korean all the chinese government we do know that president xi jinping met with kim to win yesterday for about an hour and they were expected to have discussed a possible future summit between u.s. president donald trump and kim jong un over the next few months now it's unclear whether kim jong un's train will return straight to pyongyang or whether hubie stopping by another chinese city but what is clear is that this trip has been very
10:21 pm
positive optics for both north korea and china for north korea they've been able to show the world that they have a very powerful friend in china and kim jong il has been able to demonstrate himself as a more confident statesman than he was last year and for china well they've been able to show the world that they have very strong influence when it comes to pyongyang this is kim to wounds fourth trip to china in just under a year and this relationship is very important especially when you consider china's relationship with the u.s. china is currently embroiled in some very tense trade negotiations with washington and they're wanting to do what ever they can to improve their position in those talks and certainly leveraging this relationship with pyongyang is one of those ways hundreds of palestinians have gathered in the occupied west bank city of ramallah to protest against a controversial pension law they're angry over a new scheme that came into effect late last year very force it was at the demonstration. over into the third month of these protests now against the social
10:22 pm
security law and although the numbers are somewhat down today and what we've seen in the thousands of people in recent protests there are several hundred here today the numbers called largely by what has been a very rainy cold day here in ramallah the issue at hand here is this social security law which is. requiring a would require a seven point five percent contribution from employees in the private sector and more than ten percent from employers what people are concerned about isn't just the financial goodna that would impose on them and on the economy here but also on what would happen to that money can they trust that it would really would be used for pensions and other benefits in the future there really is an issue of trust against the palestinian government in this case. the salaries aren't enough to cover a current commitments deducted this money they say will get it back after thirty years contains provisions that are unfair to the employees. now
10:23 pm
wastdale under occupation like albury right now that israeli military forces are like anybody to. convince people that you don't like to see them and us need their money and effort and like what's going to happen in most parts of the world social security system could be seen as a fairly regular required safety net and something that society would be expected to contribute to people here aren't really argue with that as a concept what they're arguing with is the idea that this is being drawn out in an undemocratic way by a government which hasn't had an election for over a decade they don't trust that government they say to deal with this money in a fair way not to use it for purposes other than pensions and other benefits in the future policy in government of course says that it has already. conceded
10:24 pm
a delay in the imposition of this they are willing to talk about it and negotiate people here though they just want it scrapped and they say they will continue protesting until that happens police in bangladesh have fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesting garment workers who are on strike for a fourth day demanding higher wages there was violence after demonstrators attempted to block the roads to the airport in the capital dhaka at least one person has been killed and fifty others injured in the past four days bangladesh is the world's second largest garment maker after china. question was president is facing international condemnation for expelling a un backed anti corruption mission the panel had been investigating top government officials and the family of president jimmy moralez david messer reports from guatemala city. outside the headquarters of a un backed anti corruption commission a group of court amal and celebrate they say the international commission against

outside of the constitutional court another group of guatemalans holds a quieter protest they hope that the country's top court will rule against morales decision i guess that has to be with him to things to the commission mafia like business autoglass have been uncovered and that's what they don't like this is going on after the powers that existed since independence is the only entity that's been able to uncover corruption you know but even if the president's ruling is overturned there are fears he will push it through and set off a constitutional crisis what many see as this country's most effective weapon in the fight against corruption could be coming to an end and guatemala's future hangs in the balance david mercer out zero in guatemala city. a classic andy warhol is instantly recognizable and uniquely american but those much more will be on the iconic campbell soup cans and marilyn monroe image christensen he
