a total waste of time one of the latest live from washington. cautious optimism of the cease fire holding in her data from the un's and yemen but the humanitarian situation is getting worse. and from soup cans to hollywood icons a new exhibition taking people inside the life and works of andy warhol. at least three people have been killed in more anti-government demonstrations in sudan the protests as angry about rising fuel and food costs and one president bashir to step down but he remains defiant to morgan has the latest from. was it. for three weeks now this has been the scene in many parts of sudan people coming out to protest against president obama to bashir is twenty nine

year rule and demanding that he step down was the one part of whether we are under a dictatorship for thirty years they have used religion to stay in power now is the right time for people to come out and protest you can see them firing tear gas they could even be a weird agent we citizens just want our rights to eat and drink and live with dignity like anyone else in the world. on wednesday thousands came out once again to protest an older man as they attempted to make their with village street of assembly to handle memo demanding that the president resign was the police responded using tear gas was in live in mission to disperse the crowd. a scene different than the one in the capital khartoum where the first pro-government rally was held since protests began in mid december president bashir addressed his supporters blaming the protest on what he described as external forces that you know and there's a human we are all together hand in hand joining forces to maintain stability
1:03 am
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. but elections are more than a year away and those protesting say they want him to step down sooner rather than later one thing it's done is in a way a reflection of the state of the nation demonstrations against the government on one side demanding president almighty bashir step down and a pro-government rally on the other with the president and his supporters defined in the face of those protests was rights groups say forty people have been killed in anti-government protests the government puts the figure at nineteen with protest as echoing slogans from the arab spring there are illusions that toppled governments in neighboring countries some analysts say the current state of the country could last for some time so. this will continue for
1:04 am
a while until the government finds an economic and political solution because it's not just the economy of the deserving people to protest but the government has to offer some compromise or the demonstrations will continue going to the know and never in his twenty nine year rule have a protest against him lasted for this long president bashir may be determined to stay in power and i think these protesters say they are just as determined to see him go he will morgan al-jazeera. to the u.s. now where the government remains in partial shutdown and the standoff between the president and the democrats deepens further a short time ago donald trump walked out of a meeting with democrats after they once again refused to agree to fund his border with mexico trump tweeted the meeting had been a total waste of time as they call heinous places from washington and i think u.s.
1:05 am
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 the 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 democrats for the impasse from a badly needed to a moral and a little more than the span of a presidency so much better talk about
1:06 am
a pivot all about a pivot. my democratic friends wanted fencing and physical barriers in the race and . for their part democrats rolled out some of the eight hundred thousand federal workers who should be paid in two days but right now we are the faces behind this shutdown we are the real people working in the prisons and the transportation security administration and other federal agencies today doing so without federal pay 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 but the president insists his support is holding i would say that we have a very very unified party this is an unpopular president 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 to
1:07 am
call him al-jazeera washington. mike hanna joins us live now from washington michael the most successful meeting then the sides seem to be further apart than ever. certainly it does appear there was great division within that meeting ended on one side the democrats arguing that president trump threw a temper trampoline tantrum slamming his hand down on the table this denied by republicans who were present at the meeting who said that once a president heard that he wasn't going to get money for his wall he said bye bye and simply walked out so this was an attempt to seek some kind of compromise a democrat senate leader says that there has been a proposal on president trump's desk for a number of weeks now a compromise proposal which he says it appears the president hasn't even looked at so certainly that does appear to be a continual hardening of positions president trump went up into the hill early on
1:08 am
in the day to get republican support to ensure ongoing republican support given that a number of republicans actually supported the democratic vote in the house the spending vote in the last few days he's concerned about unity of the republican party despite the fact that he says he isn't and what happens now where do we go from here. very difficult to see the democrats well the house will be passing another funding vote but there's no apparent chance that it will go through the senate the senate majority leader insisting that he will not allow debate on any bill that has not been approved by the president so there is no option of that at this particular stage both house and senate passing a bill and sending it off to the president for signature forcing him into the towing such legislation so very difficult to see what is the way forward one indication of whether there may be some kind of deal is whether more republicans
1:09 am
come behind the democratic bulls or funding bills if there is a split within the republican party both in the house and in senate and certainly that would put more pressure on president trump than anything else to seek some form of compromise mike hanna thank you very much indeed the un's special envoy for yemen a says substantial progress is needed to advance peace efforts before new talks can be held on ending the four year war addressing the security council martin griffiths expressed cautious optimism that a truce agreed last month in stockholm is holding james face has more from the un the un security council was told a fragile shaky cease fire continues to hold in her data almost a month after a peace deal was signed in sweden there has been some including him who don't have city and in the southern districts of the government that this is remarkably
1:10 am
limited compared to what we saw in the weeks before the stocker consultations and this relative calm i believe indicates the tangible benefit of the stockroom agreement for the people of yemen and it also illustrates the commitment of both parties to make the greens work. but special envoy martin griffiths seemed to be accentuating the positive in the public meeting when later it went into closed session the council heard from major general patrick kamut the dutch general who leads the u.n. monitoring mission in who data he's giving the security council weekly reports the latest says the un's body armor and armored vehicles have not been allowed into the country there are many no go areas and the team of received death threats according to the un's top humanitarian official the situation for ordinary human is remains dire millions of yemenis are looking to ask for assistance and protection and we
1:11 am
need to see more and faster progress on all the humanitarian elements of your resolution to make any practical difference to their lives the u.n. special envoy said sweden is only the start of the next part achieving the last thing political agreement will be even harder a former u.s. ambassador to yemen laid out the challenges ahead what he got out of stockholm was in some sense of the fruit in some instances in fact there was. an issue that had already been agreed that the prisoner exchange so so what's going to come next is going to be much more of a trial and there's talk here of fresh talks on yemen to be held in either kuwait or jordan but so far the u.n. has not felt confident enough to name a date james out of the united nations the u.s. actual state has made a stop in iraq on his tour of middle east capitals my pompei arrived in baghdad
1:12 am
where he met iraqi leaders as well as u.s. troops stationed there are believed to have discussed u.s. concerns about iran's influence in iraq a top u.s. diplomat is in the region to reassure washington's allies about trump's plans to withdraw troops from syria. well turkey's foreign minister says his government will reject a request from the united states not to attack kurdish forces in northern syria when u.s. forces pull out if you chose to dress the turkish parliament a day after u.s. national security adviser john bolton repeated the request during a visit to ankara bolton's comments angered president richard the one who says turkey will not compromise on that stance on kurdish y p g fight is what she calls terrorists she in question who is in northern syria with more we are in a town that was liberated by the turkish backed free syrian army a while ago and the stone was vons why are still borne by other coalition forces
1:13 am
and it has been hurt a lot with its people with its buildings and after it was liberated by the turkish crack free syrian army the margaret the most graphic has changed people who have moved out so far has returned and there is some other migration from other places inside syria a relatively normal life has begun as we are told because there are schools there is a courthouse there is a major reason that they call where the local council functions and there are local police forces that is mentored by the turkish turkish army members here and when there is a vendor the local police forces here could interfere immediately however of course those fear here is different to the kurdish dominated areas in northern syria these people here in the most the believe that if a turkish military offensive is held against
1:14 am
a pew idea and we have controlled area. those places could be liberated and they can go back to their homes like members or other places. watching out is there a still to come on the program i met my u.k. parliament starts debating to resume a's breck's it deal with a make or break vote shuttle for next week. and north korea's need to wraps up a launch a secret visit to china a day earlier than expected. how the daily build of thunderstorms in new south wales is quite extraordinary this cloudy you can see that's a bit more understandable that's the remains in parts of penny and this shows running down to the queensland coast and beyond brisbane and sydney but the big showers of profit late in the day they are a c.t.
1:15 am
and in new south wales which is some well dust clouds sandstorms if you like red dust in the air hail storms and of course rain storms while the forecasts repeats them in the same sort of say there's more persistent rain in tropical queensland is dry for most of the rest attention first has come down to twenty two vices it remains much the same time to get to friday similarly the weather pattern further east is much the same wet weather frequent thunderstorms inch of queens and and big late day thunderstorms and new south wales and across canberra now we've had some pretty nice weather recently in new zealand and effectively still continues a little bit of a streak of running to wellington seems likely and running up into scientology but that all goes through and friday and the week looks pretty good for twenty three to twenty five degrees equally as over his midwinter temperatures throughout the korean peninsula and japan are actually slowly on the rise we're above freezing not by much but by a little threat the korean peninsula. in

this year new immigration laws and projects funded by european governments have seen a rapid decline in the migrant transport for people in power travels to agadez to explore the realities faced by the drivers left out of pocket and the migrants who are choosing to return home who would like to go back to the country where they are from you know this is what is going to be like. europe migration on a. clear
1:17 am
going to a lot of the top stories. at least three anti-government demonstrations have been killed in sudan after police used tear gas and live ammunition to disperse protesters in the city of. mass demonstrations have been taking place across the country both for and against president and while the share. the u.s. partial government shutdown is set to continue after donald trump walked out of a key meeting with democrats after they once again refused to agree to fund his controversial border war with mexico. and the un's special envoy for yemen says substantial progress is needed to advance peace efforts before new talks can be held on ending the four year war. the u.k.'s parliament has started debating a prime minister's deal for leaving the european union ahead of a vote next week to resume delayed the shuttle vote last month fearing defeat with time running out before breakfast day at the end of march may has warned m.p.'s not to risk leaving the e.u. with no deal as long as the reports she suffered another setback before the debate
1:18 am
even started. outside parliament's everyone's getting ready for what's supposed to be the endgame parliament will vote next week on whether to accept the deal thrashed out on the u.k. leaving the european union brics is a sub told the life out of the air waves some months and people are sick to death of its unfortunately though it doesn't look like the end is insights. on this earth inside the mother of parliaments the debate song where the u.k. 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 thirty old 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. i.
1:19 am
know we put a good deal on the table that protects jobs and security but i notice i notice in the oath that we still don't know what threats it planned 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 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. it 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 air and everything's implausible so when
1:20 am
you have a series of implausible outcomes one thing that is currently imposed will will necessarily become the reality so even though general election party looks very unlikely that it could happen even though that the referendum looks unlikely that it happened and in fact that is the most parts cool thing to do because parliament is dead lot that makes sense to give about the people or do you. want. the eyes 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 three days what her plan b. is if she loses her vote next week the oh i deserve it the guys have it gradually parliament is exerting control over a dysfunctional government the problem remains that parliament doesn't know what it wants only lawrence leigh al-jazeera you know. the north korean leader kim jong un has wrapped up his visit to china day earlier than expected kim's trip was his fourth in the past ten months it was hoped the talks with chinese president xi
1:21 am
jinping could lay down groundwork for another potential summit with donald trump it was little detail on his shadow provided by either side but south korean media has been reporting that kim met schieffer about an hour training you 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 we're heading to beijing to have some lunch with some top they doing officials possibly even president xi jinping himself but we have received no details about the visit from either the north korean all the chinese government we do know that president xi jinping met with kim dylan yesterday for about an hour and they were expected to have discussed a possible future summit between u.s. president donald trump and over the next few months now it's unclear where the
1:22 am
condolence 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 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 police in bangladesh have fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesting garment workers who are on strike for

hazardous material that would have been no reports of harm to any staff some of the packages are said to have contained asbestos 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 or a force it was at the demonstration. over into the third month of these protests now against the social security law and although the numbers are somewhat down today on what you've seen of 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 all would require a seven point five percent contribution from employees in the private sector and more than ten percent from employers got people concerned about isn't just the
1:25 am
financial good and 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 occurrence commitments to doctor this money they say will get it back up to thirty years but the law contains provisions that are unfair to the employees. now waste their laundry at the basics like albury right now that israeli military forces are like any bearded. 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
1:26 am
to contribute to people here are really argue with that as a concept what they're arguing with is the idea that this is being drawn up 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 and government of course says that it has already conceded 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. human rights watch says venezuelan intelligence officers detained and tortured military personnel who were accused of plotting against the government in his report it says that detainees described being beaten deprived of food and electrocuted international pressure is building on president
