welcome back here's a reminder of the top stories on al-jazeera the venezuelan defense attached to washington says he has broken ties with president of the us government and has recognized opposition leader one as the interim president at a rally and that's what sank the world leaders for their support and urged the military to abandon the deal thirty four people have now been confirmed dead in brazil following friday's collapse of a dam holding waste from an island or mine rescue workers are searching for hundreds of people who remain missing and taliban sources say they've reached a draft agreement with u.s. special envoys on my need to end the war in afghanistan he confirmed significant progress had been made but said nothing had been finalized. israeli airstrikes targeting iranian forces in syria are provoking fears of sparking a full scale war israeli attacks earlier this week in the mask has killed dozens of people reported to be rainy and and pro syrian government fighters analysts in iran
say the killings are a dangerous escalation in tensions between the sworn enemies zain. in one of the first military exercises of the year iranian soldiers let loose the weapons of war the same games now may someday be fighting on frontlines far from home and experts worry israel might be hostility between the two countries is no secret since the early days of the syrian war eight years ago israeli forces have targeted iranian allies of the government. but continuing israeli strikes on iranian targets in syria means what started out as a sidebar to the war runs the risk of becoming a parallel conflict. we have been fighting israel in different ways to forty years now there is a direct contact because of their borders we are monitoring their activities and we are capable of retaliation so far we have not decided to enter direct war with
israel because we believe the syrian government should make this decision they haven't yet but it may happen and if it does we should expect a direct and very wide war on the ground. with no immediate borders between them open conflict with israel would probably look like proxy battles of the past likely playing out on lebanese and syrian soil experts say strikes on each other cities is also a possibility but the most dangerous escalation would come from the involvement of israel. and iran staunchest enemy the united states if that were to happen many experts warn the conflict could become global there is perhaps no clearer sign of the distrust between iran and israel than this monument to their mutual animosity in a speech a few years ago iran's supreme leader. predicted the end of israel giving the country twenty five years until it destroyed itself. his supporters did the math and put a clock in palestine square in downtown tehran for those who take the word of the
supreme leader as literal and this countdown clock is more than just a publicity stunt for many iranians it is a real time countdown to the end of israel as we know it. better. still bear the scars of the eight year war with neighboring iraq in the one nine hundred eighty s. and even with israel a rush to who're seems unwanted janko well first of all war is not a good thing because all countries involved take a loss and if there is a war we won't start it but we will fight until our last drop of blood to defend our country and even read in front of iran won't go for what iran is just defending itself we don't say war will never happen every moment we expect it but we will defend ourselves and we will surely when. better to avoid war as much as possible is better things can be solved by talks docks without any perception of think about it. while low level skirmishes with israel inside syria may worsen in iran there still seems to be as much talk of peace as there is for war despite open
hostility towards israel for now most people don't appear to want another large scale conflict. to one. u.s. president donald trump is coming in for heavy criticism from his own supporters after retreating on his border wall demands to end the longest government shutdown in american history on they search the five of the shutdown the senate and house of representatives unanimously passed a temporary deal to fund the government until february fifteenth now it's already been signed into law but trump says he could still declare a national emergency to secure the five point seven billion dollars for the war if no agreement is reached in the next three weeks. relatives of protesters arrested in sudan are growing increasingly concerned about what's happened to them hundreds have been detained during the six weeks of protests against rising prices and president omar al bashir is thirty year rule and the families of those arrested say

a crime or peaceful protesting is in the constitution and it is their right and they shouldn't be arrested for you know who is on the model and the ruling national congress party it makes the arrests of activists but if he says them of inciting violence and says they will be charged and tried in court it's a talking further. yes there are people who have been arrested they were calling for protest without getting legal permits they were trying to stabilize the situation and they will be charged but that those who are arrested are in touch with their lawyers because it's in the right we make sure they're in good health and. has and doesn't mind if his brother appears in court as long as he turns up alive and well morgan al-jazeera sort of tomb. the e.u. observation mission in nigeria has raised concerns about the suspension of the country's chief justice and the timing of the move welter on no get has been accused of failing to the clear assets and will suspend then suspended by president

and welcome again to rewind i'm elizabeth. when we first launched al-jazeera english more than ten years ago our goal was to seek out the sort of documentaries on the channel simply weren't doing well here on rewind we revisit some of the best of them to find out how they came about and how the stories moved on well today we rewind into two thousand and six and one of the earliest of those programs for more than thirty years mohamad made was a legendary figure in africa a photo and video journalist who chronicled the momentous events of the second half of the twentieth century a turbulent time for the continent mo and me was a series made by muhammad son sunday in which he tells the story of his father's career and camera picks the agency has father created a brave and highly respected figure in africa mohamed came to global prominence
when his film and photos of the mine nine hundred eighty four ethiopian famine shocked the world and led directly to the international live aid phenomenon where today we're returning to the final part of the series which tells the tragic story of mohammed's death and the legacy he left behind the first let's take a look at some of the stories he chronicled for newspapers and t.v. stations across the world.
yes. well as you can see muhammad's korea took him to the heart of the action in africa but in a tragic twist it was finally to find himself on what in the at the center of a global story is the final episode of law and me. my name is sally mommy son of renowned photojournalist muhammad or me dad was a regular commuter to addis ababa one reason was that he published the in-flight magazine of ethiopian airlines we still do. data business colleague brian todd lee checked in on november twenty third one nine hundred ninety six flight eight hundred nine six one to nairobi a saturday dad flew in first tightly in business.
it was a last minute decision to take brian along he hated flying. captain lola but it takes me aboard a flight simulator. it's programmed to reenact what happened to flight eighty nine six one was anything unusual other than in any premonition you had about this right. now it does my daughter started the day. i celebrated her birthday i tom and i came out for the flight for the beautiful day and it's guys claire. started out very nice.
when we took off when the plane took a. off. before it even leveled out. we heard the i heard some noise coming from back and then i noticed two gentlemen running up the aisles towards the cockpit so they came into the cockpit take a moment on i mean there are three of them they took the fire extinguisher and they started beating the copilot crawled along. i said guys hold on what's going on here shut up the flight is hijacked ok no problem i saw moment i mean come on twice the cabin to the passenger compartment economy class and talk to. to some of us to try to to to to assist him all to stand up against the hijackers but. most people were i think a little too scared so i assume he is
a very brave man and. what none of the passengers knew was that the hijackers had demanded to be taken to australia ironically they'd picked australia out of the in-flight magazine that died himself published. ok guys i thought. this flight is destined to nairobi. we don't carry innocuous australia let's learn to nairobi really if you're in and then we can go to australia either i told them it's impossible. the hijackers refused to allow captain a budget to refuel at my ruby or mombasa. so you can't go the new possible bus and then last month and i was trying to fly along the coast right so that i don't want to be far from the. they are the line. then he said why are you flying along the coast of australia is somewhere to the static.
and i thought the ok i thought i had the heading. and now this message came you know if you told. you see this it's a small fuel we're running out of fuel guys so we just kept climbing like this. so you were circling the island of this i was sort of coming at diana i decided out of anyone else right because the teacher day. by now flight eighty nine six one was circling above the camorra as i look. so i just kept on going i told the guys we're going to die they're running out of your armor we're already lost one engine. then started talking with the guys and this time i took my makeup i told the passengers they descendant the man they have rocked. they have lost one engine you took your starvation and we're going to die
that engine varies so he'd run out of fuel it already lost one engine. and that he had no alternative but to crash on and off in this realize. this is ending differently is that we all thought that there would be a bush usually people will feel maybe one airport the other sort of thing but you know that's when the panic set in the reality actually dollars so yeah this could be the end one time. i heard the door open yes i attended about i saw your father standing on a dime he was standing and talking to i decided to study i don't write you a thing he does the people i could see by the justice just as he was making but he was trying to get people to stand up. and help him. and stand up to it again you know stand up to the streets but most people who. think rather too to scare. you things because he was a he had been in this situation many tell us if he's been in many trying situations as we all know and i guess he stands up to these challenges
a lot easier than most people would you know. now that appearing as a descending right as good he said proudly told me we have to go. true or false that i doubt i said guys this is finished now we are all dead people know that to do with my right hand side i don't know they did it here is the single adult on my look. disengaged that he did from this country of you know i'm not control right then i just make that part of planet earth. and i have to start lying to myself and he was struggling like this you know this question can live. on and i was not trying to recover from that condition you know he was doing like this. and i was trying to recover people and the scream you shall see calling up jesus. running up and down the aisles people trying to put on their life jackets and not
finding them the skills. we were about twenty one thousand we witnessed got injured right. so you were just basically gliding off to that point that's where the twenty one thousand feet you were just blood was up twenty one thousand feet yes started to get hot in the plane the lights on the to flicker started to aspire and they got us on the dock. and those all this you know people were screaming and it was just so a lot of panic and croft. trying to be gentle in this time working side by that ok you have to hold it all day. and i was talking to my son as we came down and people could actually see what's on both sides of the plane it sort of went quiet this was like the last few moments case that they were going to make it you know make it. and i just kept looking. out the window and i could see water this is
a good. good to start the other day. and then finally. i guess maybe five or ten so. akins before we hit the water i went down it's to shut my eyes and held on to seaton from his waiting for the impact on the. honeymoon couple from south africa taking photographs on the beach. but. people were struggling to get out of the seats and you know tugging on to others and you know all that was a bit scary because i was under water and of course yes to hold your breath all this time is that a shock yeah but finally i did get out and when i got out i looked up and that's
a saw the sky. and i said ok this must be the the other side must have crossed over and then when i leveled out and looked at the ocean us all these boats look like tourists so look at must still be are hundreds of. them. at. the camorra ends in the holidaymakers bring the passengers assure alive dead and halfway between. of dad there is no sign. of one hundred seventy five passengers from thirty six countries one hundred twenty three perished including the hyde.
