7:03 pm
the protests started the government said they've arrested at least eight hundred sixteen people activists and opposition groups say that the number could be as high as a thousand but they don't know because nobody knows where have all the people who are arrested are being held and there are concerns about their safety indeed and as you've just been pointing out you know despite all those security risks the risk of being arrested people do seem to be determined to continue with the process more than a month now is there an end in sight is the president doing anything to appease the demonstrators. well he said that he's going to try to introduce economic reforms but people know that sudan's current economic state is not does not allow for much economic reforms let's put it this way sudan source of wealth the oil that came from the south is not fully functional to us also that doesn't produce as much oil as it used to so it doesn't have the same economic incentive that it had back in ten to twelve or twenty fifteen when there were similar demonstrations people also say that they've heard promises about economic reforms over and over again and it doesn't seem to help that the president has been accusing the protestors of
7:04 pm
being demonstrators influenced by foreign agents now he said his security forces the police the military and national security are not responsible for the killing we're talking about at least twenty seven people killed as for the government but activists are saying at least fifty people have been killed so people are saying that the security response to the fact that they are protected protesting peacefully and armed is not helping and that they will continue to demonstrate until president bashir resigns something he said he's not going to do he said his group people have to wait until elections next year if they want to see a transfer of power so at the moment sudan is at a crossroads between people who want to see the present president gone and a president who doesn't seem willing to bend down into a pit with the latest there culture thank you. zimbabwe's human rights commission is accusing security forces of using systematic torture in a crackdown on protesters president anderson and ganga is calling for a national dialogue and as promised to investigate claims of violence by government

agents when a gaggle used twitter to condemn the demonstrations against fuel prices which he said were not peaceful but he also criticise the police response he said violence will misconduct spoil security forces is unacceptable and a trial of the new zimbabwe chaos and insubordination will not be tolerated misconduct will be investigated if a quiet heads will roll welcome at some of. the executive director at the zimbabwe human rights commission she says the government must provide compensation for victims of police brutality police in the military way in dealy a lot to tell you targeted. in particular they raided people night dragging people out what plea young men were found in go out beating them up and also admitting. when we arrived at this conclusion mainly
7:06 pm
through our investigations and interacting interaction with members of the public if the commission we've got to mandates to investigate and. men rights violations in that country and it was through the implementation of this mandate that you managed to going to the areas where they did to be induced to place is well is a very escort meisters cool thing that country where the alleged perpetrator of the violence were actually being tried. a car bomb has decimated syria's letter kid district and there are reports of casualties footage carried on syrian state television showed a large group of people in the street or wreckage small's it on the grounds of the care is significant as it's his home to rushes in the air base so hot it has more from beirut. two attacks in government controlled territories. and damascus and it is quite rare for attacks to happen in government controlled
7:07 pm
territories especially now especially after the government has managed to consolidate control over the areas it controls that has pushed the rebels back the rebels surrendered their territories around the capital the first attack on sunday that you're mentioning there were reports that a security personality was the target of that bombing it is not clear whether or not that person was wounded or killed it's very difficult to get information out of damascus so this really raises a lot of questions if indeed this was the opposition if indeed this was the work of eisold and is it easy to operate behind enemy lines then that would really say a lot about the security situation in government controlled territories but if you watch syrian state television just moments after the blast was reported in. they had analysts on air warning of a new phase in the in the conflict already predicting more attacks in government
7:08 pm
controlled areas saying that they expect the situation the security situation to destabilize even further now many of the opposition will say this is the way the government tries to keep people on their side to make up for their inability to provide for fuel improve the living conditions because public resentment discontent is growing in government controlled areas yes they control sixty percent of the syria but that sixty percent of syria people are still struggling and the government is struggling to get recognition from outside for sanctions to be lifted in order for it to reconstruct and in order for the economy to improve so now the sit to security situation stabilizing within the government controlled territories . talks in doha between taliban officials and the u.s. special envoy to afghanistan. are to continue into a third day the discussions began hours after a massive taliban bomb attack on intelligence and security personnel in afghanistan known to have killed at least sixty five people the suicide bomb and gun attack
7:09 pm
near happened near might in sharp the capital of wardak province the attackers drove a truck packed with explosives into a training center run by the afghan intelligence agency after that explosion other taliban fighters dressed in police uniforms stormed the base brazil's new far right president says he'll strive to preserve the environment while pursuing economic developments giant bowl scenario make it was making a special address to the world economic forum in the swiss town of davos where he's been pitching a new brazil to the business elite since his inauguration earlier this month he's already taken steps to relax protection of indigenous lands in the amazon rain forest not suddenly saw one of the of us are it's now our mission to make progress in harmonizing environmental preservation and biodiversity on the one hand with a much needed economic development while billion mine these are independent pillars
7:10 pm
of our society those who criticize us have a great deal to learn who wish to govern by example and we want the world to reestablish the trust and confidence it's always had in us we'll work to lower the tax burden streamline rules and make life easier for those who wish to produce and do business in brazil as entrepreneurs we also want investment and to create jobs all our diplomatic editor james bays is also in davos making that address to the conference how do you think it was received. well it was a relatively short speech and then just a tough couple of questions afterwards and somewhat restrained in the language that he used but you've got to remember this davos has one of its main themes as climate change the environment and of course this is a deeply controversial political figure now running his country a country that is home to the amazon who wants to increase business increase
7:11 pm
tourism so there are all sorts of fears about how this will affect the environment what his government's policy is towards climate change certainly it sounds pretty similar to the policies of president trump and so i think there is concern not particularly about what he said here but the fact that there wasn't a great deal that he said that was new that reassured any one president trying of course not in switzerland that one of the big headlines that my pump a.o. has just been addressing davos what did he have to say. yeah make it clear that my pompei is not in divorce either originally president trump pulled out and said his delegation would come with secretary pompei or secretary minutiae in the treasury secretary gerry cushion his son in law and then a few days later they all got cancelled as well i think not because they would save money because i suspect a lot of the hotels and other details were already paid for but the optics would
7:12 pm
have been so bad at the time of government shutdown to have those figures here with some of the top business leaders here in this alpine ski resort so instead secretary pompei i was speaking by video link from washington d.c. a good knowledge is saying that there is potentially a problem in an economic town downturn globally but then at the same time saying that president trump has the solution to that and that solution and he was invoking ronald reagan is pure capitalism he talked about unleashing the animal instincts he said that was the us way and he encouraged other countries to do the same he said no international body would look after the interests of the people as well as the leaders of the individual countries so again a message of nationalism coming from the trumpet illustration james and i will thank you all meanwhile the executive editor of the washington post marty baron has
7:13 pm
been speaking about the murder his colleague jamal has shante that was at a media freedom of events in davos he criticized the lack of accountability for the killing. we're disappointed with what the saudi government did first of all this was. a walk into a diplomatic mission to obtain documents for is. imminent and marriage and it was brutally murdered murdered he was dismembered his body still hasn't been found the saudi government said from the beginning that he walked out freely that they did nothing and we learned later that in fact he was he was murdered and so and today we feel that there hasn't been full accountability for that for that murder and we don't feel that the u.s. government has brought enough pressure on the saudis we don't feel that other governments of the broad enough pressure on the saudis because of this and i think that you know we have to take a look at well why was he murdered he was murdered for expressing an opinion and opinion that at times was contrary to the official opinion of the of the saudi
7:14 pm
government and we also have to look at well how do we know what actually happened there because the saudi government are richer than this really didn't like about what had what occurred there and the reason that we know about that is because of a free press a press that investigated this that which which was persistent that tried one earth the facts and did on earth the facts and then ultimately the saudi government needed to acknowledge that in fact a team of individuals went from saudi arabia to turkey to istanbul with the express purpose of murdering murdering him and that's why we need a free press is to is to dig deeply and to hold people accountable and so with the satisfied along the way obviously dissatisfied with the brutal murder and horrified by beautiful brutal murder of one of our colleagues dissatisfied that the world.
7:15 pm
does not bring enough pressure on a government that engages in the those kinds of activities or there's plenty more still to come including that call. and hungry the displaced yemenis losing hope of the talks between the warring sides break down again. and us federal workers get free cheese in fact the government shutdown begins to bite. hello the weather is set fire across china lots of sunshine also dry weather a little bit of cloud i would say was the western side of the country but it is going to say mostly settled and sunnies attempt is in hong kong getting up to around twenty celsius over the next couple of days shanghai hanging on to top temperature of around thirteen degrees twenty four taipei generally settled in
