5:03 pm
the word that the people who were killed in sudan looked killed because they did anything wrong look at single car broken not a single house broken the people who are going out. to say you know if you screw it . i was a forensic expert says the doctor was shot from behind. we found pieces of metal in the room and in the lower part of his lung they'd be studied to determine the caliber and the type of weapon used and. so then the security forces and police deny any role in the killing of protesters with the. us police never used any live fire to any protest sites or any other occasion we never use live bullets in any situation. the same denials have been to eternity today by the head of intelligence and the target of the protest as president on bashir we're going to . leave we have now arrested people who belong to the abdul wahid militia
5:04 pm
and they acknowledge they were given orders to mix with protesters and kill them in order to stoke conflict and destroy the country the governing security doesn't kill people the weapon that's been used to kill dr abdul barker of the honeyed is not any type that our army or police possess or any of that exists in sudan. by god i say it's the regime that killed my son i will never doubt my certainty about it but i get in with our media and i'm sure they purposefully decided to kill doctors but my sister was arrested with the others they detained this told them that they were specifically looking for doctors who helped protest is that. the type of force being used by the government to quell the protests is adding to the controversy and confusion about the killings the government has employed militia to help the army combat armed groups in sudan for decades what's attracting attention now these
5:05 pm
militia men are mosque in their faces while attacking an arm of civilians in the streets of khartoum and other major cities and i think what the what the thinking then there is a very dangerous and unprecedented situation now when men in civilian clothes can carry guns battens a mosque there faces to confront protesters this proves the existence of a shadow army which is seniors ruling party leader talked about and yet you see him move anyone with him in there who do. as protesters chant peaceful peaceful they are drowned out by gunfire and tear gas. scenes of collective punishment like this are say the government's opponents a daily occurrence. so is the break into homes our security forces severely beat anyone suspected of hiding protesters the government says twenty six people have been killed so far in a month of protests to demand the better life rights groups say the total is at
5:06 pm

5:08 pm
thousands of people who've been displaced. these children used to have a home regular meals and even shoes but now they live here on one of the main streets in yemen's capital sanaa but their father mohamed fatemi says he fled from the southern port city of data because the fighting while lebanon is going to set it every night i take shelter under this blue sheet it is freezing out here we need help to find a job and a roof above our heads i'm sleeping on the sidewalk we hope humanitarian agencies will take notice of our condition i have left no stone unturned but i've got no answer we are suffering severe cold starvation and a third. mohammed and his seven children are not alone they are part of the two million people in yemen who have been displaced since the war began in two thousand and fifteen and also part of the twenty two million people needing eight survive but help is limited in yemen. yemen yemenis are suffering
5:09 pm
a sharp shortage of basic needs and all the relief agencies operating here cannot afford to meet all those needs therefore the red cross reiterate so that the political situation is a must in order to put to an end the suffering of the yemenis despite a cease fire in his hometown which came into effect last month mohammad is not hopeful about the future of his country over the future of his children and i have to look around and see for yourself how we are living our children are dying because of cold and hunger i am jobless i can't even afford to beg where do i go i'm a yemeni lost in my own homeland if no help is provided we will all be left to die there are reports of fighting resuming in her data over the past few days which not only threaten civilians who suffered years of conflict but also risks the fragile cease fire door such a pari al-jazeera. well global leaders are gathered in davos switzerland for the start of this year's world economic forum but there are big names who are not there this year many are staying home to sort out their domestic issues and they include
5:10 pm
u.s. president donald trump our diplomatic editor james bays is in doubt asked for so james what a difference a year makes and their boss just isn't this the same this year is it well when president trump is not of international event it is so different from when he is at an international event you could argue that actually get more business done and certainly more attention on the issues here because when president total trump turns up at an international summit of any sort any international gathering it's almost as though he he squeezes all the auction oxygen out of it and it all becomes about president trump he stayed behind because of the shut down business leaders political leaders here as ever in down there was worth remembering that as well as them every year leaders of international organizations the secretary general of the united nations antonio good terrorists will be here later in the week humanitarian organizations from the u.n.
5:11 pm
and the ngo sector one of those is save the children the head of save the children international told me a short time ago that she's here in the main priority is getting the people the other dignitaries here to focus on yemen. when i was in yemen last year children and people with was saying to me we feel that the world has forgotten us we feel that they don't care about our suffering and that is so mad when you think about this that yemen is the worst place to be a child right now the suffering in yemen the children to die of hunger the many many millions of people who don't know where their next meal is coming from that is true human suffering and it's all manmade it didn't have to be like that so this is why we need to make sure that people still understand the best walker going on and ask themselves what can we do to help that should be outrage also because the nature of war has changed so enormously now we see that cities are being besieged
5:12 pm
we see the denial of humanitarian access being part as have been used as a weapons of war we're seeing places where children should be safe hospitals schools playgrounds being bombed sometimes deliberately the nature of war has changed and i will agree that what we are seeing it will be a seeing now is very very brutal and we're also seeing that it is being done with impunity. well leaders like health funding schmidt come here to davos every year because they want to raise awareness of things like yemen but also because they want to raise money because there are so many business leaders so many politicians who provide the aid money for n.g.o.s like hers to work and clearly the global economy has a bearing on that countries are likely to be more generous when the economy is good
5:13 pm
here there are some serious concerns about a downturn in the economy coming potentially from china it's worth remembering a year ago when president trump was here certainly things in terms of the u.s. economy were looking very good indeed he was seeing seeming almost victorious as he wandered around a year ago perhaps one year on it's worth looking at where we are now and taking a bit of a stock take. one year ago when president trump arrived in davos the business world was already aware of the unpredictable nature of the u.s. is most unusual more president most of the well read intellectually focused and strategically minded business leaders who attend this annual gathering could not be more different from donald trump a man who once ran casinos and arguably sometimes ran his empire as if he was in a casino yet when he came here he walked around the halls on
5:14 pm
a victory lap he was proud of a strong economy united states is doing fantastically well and he stated here as he did many times elsewhere that he was most happy to be judged by one metric the stock market is smashing one record after another and has added more than seven trillion dollars in new wealth since my election. it didn't stay that way increased volatility at the end of the year meant two thousand and eighteen ended up the worst year on the u.s. stock market for a decade so would trump receive a similar reception if he was coming to davos this year i asked a leading economist i know it's quite different from last year he had just passed the big tax cut and they were about to increase spending the outlook for the economy in the short run was very positive and so there was a sort of a legitimate optimism about the u.s.
5:15 pm
economy a year ago what's become clear is that that was a short term boost not a long term boost and i think one has to look at the way financial markets have behaved over the last several months as at least creating circumstances where a recession is probably more likely. than it would have been otherwise so that would be a nightmare scenario course for president trump the idea of a recession coming because of course next year is election year in the united states in the combination of those two things is certainly not what a first term u.s. president wants trump not here not of his administration here but they're still going to get their message across one hour from now the u.s. secretary of state mike pompei oh who canceled his flight today have also is going to address the delegates he's using a video link to the main hole here in davos as i say the u.s. secretary of state speaking in one hours time all right james thanks for that james

a tweet or if you join us on sat there was a rush of adrenaline will be felt this is the moment that we have been waiting for this is a dialogue the government has codebase i may go protest and instructed police to use force to disperse the crowds everyone has a voice vote so lots of different reasons what's the difference types of bricks join the global conversation on al-jazeera. you're watching i just need a reminder of our top stories the protesters are back on the streets in sudan as anger grows over the government's crackdown the opposition says forty seven people

5:21 pm
number of people they managed to save in a very short time but also bringing the whole operation to one in a record time which is quite different from what happened in the center about twenty two when there was the talk of the wish to get more in twenty fifteen when else about one hundred forty. students in a university in the northeastern part of the country because there is also concerned that kenya might be free see the threat of homegrown terrorism and the government is saying defeat is going to carry out a massive security operation to recover as many of the illegally held firearms as possible. an uninhabited island in bangladesh will be the new home for more than one hundred thousand range of refugees who fled myanmar the un special rapporteur on human rights there has been given permission to visit the place on thursday but
5:22 pm
rights groups compare conditions on the island to neighboring in a prison i was really surprised because last night gave the approval to go ahead for me to go visit china for two years as you said i had no access and this time and they really part of my trip here they i was told that i can go when it's finished but you know but she promised me last july when i came here she said you can go after the rain so i think she's taking now she's fulfilling her promise because the rain has stopped and it's a dry season and i think she's willing to let me go and show to the world what it really is. the test of the name has more now from cooped up a long refugee camp in bangladesh center that is facing the enormous challenge of how best to host almost a million rohingya refugees caucuses are is now home to the largest refugee settlements in the world and the government says people keep streaming over the
5:23 pm
border from the unmarked at a rate of about forty thousand a year this mega camp is congested it sits on an elephant migration route and in less than two years the jungle has been heavily used forested one of the solutions the government has is to move about one hundred thousand rohingya refugees to a remote island it's called the heart is about a four hour boat ride from the mainland it is uninhabited and it's prone to flooding that is why it's controversial if you want special rapporteur says since the rohingya crisis began two has been pushing for access to this island on tuesday he told al-jazeera he is now going to be allowed to take a tour and that will happen on thursday a new treaty between france and germany is causing tensions in europe the two leaders warned of the dangers of nationalism as they signed the agreement it is aimed a deepening economic and defense ties between the two it will also boost cooperation
5:24 pm
with the e.u. and nato and far right groups have attacked the treaty assigning away the two countries sovereignty question but what has more from paris. what this treaty is really about is france and germany strengthening their cooperation and really placing themselves very firmly at the heart of what they see as a strong europe at a time when there's no doubt that the block is deeply divided now the treaty looks at areas such as partnerships and the military economic cooperation more cultural and youth exchanges france and germany may even in the future issue joint statements to the united nations for example and it also paves the way for what the two leaders of talked about for some time and that is a european army that would act under the nato alliance now it doesn't really change so much because france and germany have been a working in this way deepening their relationship for more than fifty years but it's certainly very symbolic because it comes less than four months before the
5:25 pm
european union parliamentary elections and at a time when both chancellor merkel and president are very aware that the rise of far right anti populous parties really threatens the future of the european union we also have a great looming so what these two leaders really want to do is present a very strong and united europe they want to talk about reforms they want to make sure that europe a europe that's united is very much in the voters' minds when people go to the ballot box in may china's economy is growing at its slowest rate in decades that's putting pressure on the countries job market young people in particular are feeling the crunch a record number of new graduates will be looking for work this year and those who have jobs so they're working longer hours for less pay catrina you reports from beijing. taking
