3:02 am
a model there are attempts to stalk up of communal conflict but the thing is that so far none of these attacks on the churches have resulted in such type of hatred between muslims and christians. the predominantly catholic philippines has been plagued by decades of separatist conflict in mindanao more than one hundred thousand people have been killed and millions more in displaced in the decades long conflict in mindanao and despite the reconsideration process attacks like this show that armed groups still pose a threat to peace in the region dogon al jazeera manila once more had on the air. zero news hour including we look at how bread has become the main symbol of the crisis in sudan plus. i'm rich allen's incent petersburg russia formally learning right and it was seventy five years ago today that one of the most brutal episodes

3:04 am
complained about not being involved in the latest round of talks in qatar's capital . that afghans we spoke to hope the talks in doha will help and the war while others are skeptical does not omit what is theme that we are very hopeful all the afghans are tired of for exploration in suicide attack in this country they are hoping for a brighter future and i am very hopeful that these talks will bring a bright future for us and for the future of afghanistan. we afghans don't trust groups affiliated with foreign intelligence agencies the u.s. must talk with the afghan people because we are the ones who suffer this is not peace what kind of peace is this the u.s. ovoid to afghanistan is in kabul to briefed. president assad funny on his meeting with the taliban cell by hell is that reported that there had been significant progress the taliban though we're being cautious saying talks with continue to
3:05 am
overcome obstacles one of them is agreeing on a timeline for the withdrawal of foreign troops initially the taliban dismissed any overtures towards the u.s. as long as american forces are in afghanistan the taliban has rejected direct talks with the afghan government which it considers an american puppet but peace in afghanistan goes beyond internal disputes the u.s. hopes neighboring pakistan can play a crucial role in the talks the afghan government and the white house have often accused the pakistani government of providing weapons and shelter for taliban fighters accusations denied by leaders in islamabad we would like to see the u.s. and that in from a foreign a stand as friend of the region so they're having exited there must not abandon a point in time in terms of their social economic development restoration of. the
3:06 am
development process the u.s. hopes the doha talks will lead to a cease fire and power sharing agreement that would pave the way for tens of thousands of u.s. a day to troops to pull out of afghanistan. al jazeera. to france where the favorite color protestors over the past three months has been yellow but this sunday in paris it's a blue and red as thousands who oppose the yellow vests make their voices heard they call themselves the blue vests and the red scarves and say the yellow vests have created a violent and destructive anti government agenda to toss a butler with an update from paris. is a very interesting suit made earlier like madam one side you have some yellow vests protest the standing on the steps of the building then behind me great store of protesters now the yellow vests protesters have been in the streets over the past
3:07 am
two months against what they say is the high cost of living many of them against the government can rates go up protestors are a new movement they've decided to come out to say the photo op with two months of yellow protest disruption they're fed up with the violence they're fed up of the blockades and what they want is for the streets to be calm once again they say there must be more respect for france's institutions for its government and for democracy in what's interesting is they also across roots movement also created in fields. like the yellow vest protesters ms another similarity in that some people here say they actually support the main issues as the yellow vests protesters such as the high cost of living or the very fast pace of reforms to what they say they don't agree with is the manner in which the yellow vests protesters have pulled that console in so into the streets often with so much violence another round of protests a flood of heart soon demanding the end of president obama and bashir as thirty
3:08 am
year rule demonstrations began almost six weeks ago over the rising cost of bread and fuel hundreds of people have been arrested a security forces crackdown on the nationwide rallies reports from the capital. freedom peace justice the overthrow of president bashir on. the main slogans being chanted by these so the nice protesters but at the root of the demonstrations are demands for basic life necessities but old stations ran out of fuel inflation rates soared bank coffers were empty people stopped deposing money with banks and those who did face limits on how much cash they could withdraw most dangerously bakeries ran out of floor of all the other needs bread can be seen as the main symbol of the crisis doesn't it and yet if the revolution of the hungry or. a bus they did was a journalist during the one nine hundred seventy s. at the time of former president. his life now may symbolize the slow descent of
3:09 am
sudan from relative ease to utter the situation. everything was much better they miri was a strong leader we had a recall chair to sit in the span was equal to four dollars but now it's crisis everywhere and people have nothing to eat who don't want to know. the origin of that crisis the sudanese government agrees was a shift the country made from agriculture to oil during the one nine hundred ninety s. but the hustle and i mean some of the model who indeed it's called the dutch disease when easy only revenue arms shift attention away from traditional resources such as farming we've had it in sudan but now we are addressing the problem through new strategies and will focus on agriculture. in two thousand and ten sudan exported nearly half a million barrels of oil a day but a year later south sudan deigned independence and took most of the oil fields with
3:10 am
it by then the ugly cultural sector was already suffering from neglect and there was another shift happening. in the past sudanese households relied mainly on sorghum for food and those things changed when the british and i in our governments wrote wheat preparing sorghum is towards the mint takes time have to take it to the mills to grind it then you need a long process to cook it with bread on the other hand is handy all you need is to go and buy it ready from the bakery and then without the hard. now then it's only a month. wheat bread now accounts for two thirds of regular meals in sudan. just to give you an idea about how much bread an average family of five individuals in sudan need for the daily meals each individual that i'm here needs six pieces of bread if i tried to put all the quantity they need in my hands. it's not possible
3:11 am
this is just the shell of two people. the crisis got worse when sudan couldn't grow or buy enough wheat saudi and the companies grow millions of tons of wheat here on least or purchased land but they sent it out of the country now sudan with its over two million hectares of fertile soil but even oil and the gigantic underground lake the newbie in basin is begging for outside help to satisfy its demand of wheat to feed the hungry population of nearly forty million. just to say it's too late to calm these khalid's bread will overthrow this regime as it happened before here in sudan. a sense of his words is a code by these protesters david chumps. some advice of just khartoum has been called the son of africa by those that knew him or listen to his music and now
3:12 am
after a jazz legend all over you could see has been laid to rest at a state funeral in zimbabwe. reports from his home village of. saying goodbye to zimbabwe's and one of africa's iconic musicians the base way they know how to solve and dance. all of them with who could see officially known as to who died from diabetes on wednesday after a four decades long korea doing what he loved one of my favorite things that he said was that he wants to tell stories and he's a poet he's telling those stories and the music is just an accompaniment to telling those stories. to get he started performing in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven singing protest music during the war to end a white minority rule more than forty years and sixty seven albums later his knees
3:13 am
it inspired generations around the world. in as much as it's a sad time that he's gone what he leaves us is the legacy of his music so in wellington than in the message of the music there's a lot of process there's a lot of in. looking at african cultural beats here really new many many different beats within zimbabwe and further afield and those he tapped into so his music is authentic and substandard. care. was in the was. was was. there. were too busy songs largely stayed clear of politics he chose to mainly sing about people's struggles
3:14 am
and hopes in zimbabwe with its huge economic and political challenges he was seen as an entertainer teacher and unifying issued certainly rest in peace. and that is about we're just we have lost a really unifying spirit but i think that we should take advantage of heaven help such a person. to then build it up. but to cause he was given a state funeral by zimbabwe's government which has declared him a national hero as a u.n. goodwill ambassador he said he wanted to spread hope through his music his fans say they'll remember him for his inspirational songs that try to make some bubbly africa and beyond a better place al-jazeera might see a symbolic. hello
3:15 am
there we've got plenty of unsettled weather across the middle east at the moment we look at the satellite picture we can see one system that's gradually pulling itself together as it works its way in from saudi arabia and then we've also got this system out in the western parts of turkey that's given us quite a bit of severe weather we even saw the or tornado out of that this one is just going to give us a few showers around the eastern coastline in the mediterranean here so a fair few outbreaks of rain nothing too significant here the first one though well that's going to be pushing up through parts of iraq giving lots of wet weather here and a fair amount of snow to it will continue its journey northeast winds as we head through chews day but dragging its feet further south so a bit further south we could also see the old spot of rain here so here's that system then as it makes its way across parts of iraq could see a few outbreaks of rain there then that gradually slips its way southwards it does largely fizzle out here but there will still be a fair amount of dust kicked up i think i will say well as a chance of seeing the your shower here in doha and behind that it will turn fresher again it's really been quite warm for us over the past couple of days down
3:16 am
towards the southern parts of africa lots of what weather here and actually the rain over parts of madagascar has been very very heavy recently yet more wet weather is expected here as we head through the day on monday and that stretches all the way into angola to. the face can tell a story without uttering a single one. and having gone. can guide us. a simpler time. inform us. the unconventionality of my witness through the lens of the human eye. is what inspires us. witness documentaries on al-jazeera. the world's largest oil company fails to become public water tap and. all the kingdoms of the company inseparable
3:17 am
they're the world's largest oil producer and you don't list in the world's largest stock exchange that definitely says something al-jazeera investigates the politics of oil the middle east most potent economic weapon. saudi arab. the company and the state on al-jazeera. hello again the top stories on the al-jazeera news hour brazilian authorities have restarted the ground search for survivors of a dam collapse and demanding you know after experts ruled the remaining down was no longer at risk of bursting rescuers in brazil have so far recovered thirty seven
3:18 am
bodies venezuela's opposition leader has called on soldiers to support him and get on the side of the constitution he declared himself president last week president nicolas maduro has denounced the efforts to topple him as a coup. and the president of the philippines is vowing to hunt the bombers of a roman catholic cathedral two explosions killed at least twenty five worshippers at sunday mass on the predominantly muslim island of polo no groups claimed responsibility uncertainty is growing between turkey and the u.s. over a proposed safe zone in northern syria the turkish president says he'll go at it alone if he doesn't get logistical support from the trumpet ministration which is removing its troops a salad and jaffe's has more on the political situation from sort of which now the turkey syria border. a lot's been said about the so-called safe zone between turkey and syria if and when u.s. forces start to leave this area turkey wants everywhere east of the euphrates river
3:19 am
to be clear of not just eisel but kurdish fighters as well the proposed thirty two kilometers would reach the edge of the contested city of my big insight syria is the last kurdish stronghold on the western side of the river which is slow material didn't meet thirty kilometers is something i think everyone can discuss positively we can even extend morris' the us coalition gives us economic and logistics support we can make the safe zone real right across. in two thousand and fifteen this was a flashpoint in the fight against eisel this is the first major town that we come across as you move east along the border the proposal also includes the towns of the lobby and russell laine commission who will be the biggest border city or the nearly half a million people some parts are also under the control of syrian government forces turkey would like to administer control of the sabin all the way to maliki here on the iraqi border is going to be talking to turkey about assuring turkey that they
3:20 am
will have a buffer zone that they need given their concerns about the why b.g. kurds but the last thing in the world we want is a war between turkey and the kurds and a lot still remains to be settled between turkey the united states and russia. millions of dollars are being distributed to close to close to one hundred thousand families in gaza qatar has donated the money us part of a un deal to alleviate the suffering of besieged palestinians but payments have been delayed by disputes involving both the israeli government and gaza's rulers hamas trial stratford has the story and. these men have come to collect one hundred dollars each from this post office in gaza city the cash they are receiving is from the qatari government donated to more than ninety thousand families here. in general one hundred dollars won't solve anything i have eight children we need
3:21 am
these are the siege to be lifted the crossings open and the end of political division that's what will solve our problems. the cash is part of a humanitarian program for gaza being led by carter with u.n. assistance but the donation process is far from straightforward under an informal agreement israel in november allowed concerts to begin sending ninety million dollars to gaza over a six months period the money has to pay the salaries of civil servants and to buy power station fuel as well as humanitarian aid but for almost three weeks the israeli government refused to approve the third installment around fifteen million dollars after an escalation of violence along the gaza israel border with israel finally allowed the money transfer hamas refused to accept it saying these release a change the conditions of the cash transfer deal was politicizing the issue before is radio elections in april many israeli politicians are against the agreement saying the government is paying what they describe as
3:22 am
a terrorist organization to keep quiet promises that it cannot raise sufficient taxis because gaza's economy is so deeply affected by israel's more than ten year and single day meanwhile the united nations is the situation for gaza's two million population is made worse by what it describes as international donor fatigue. the u.n. says whether you agree with hamas policies or not humanitarian aid should not be politicized and i appreciate those kinds of arguments but think that we need to keep humanitarian and political concerns separate i think if you start questioning the political motivations of humanitarian aid you will never get anything done. hamas says with or without clothes money friday protests as buddha will continue until israel lifts seach at least two hundred fifty palestinians have been killed
3:23 am
mainly by israeli sniper fire since the demonstrations started in march and hundreds of thousands of palestinians like these continue to rely on international humanitarian aid to survive at al-jazeera gaza. roger stone a longtime ally of donald trump has told us media he'll consider cooperating with special counsel robert muller's russia investigation stone who was arrested on friday has denied charges of lying to congress obstruction witness tampering if there is wrongdoing by other people in the campaign that i don't know about which i know of no one but if there is i would certainly testify honestly i'd also testify honestly about any other matter including any communications with the president it's true that we spoke on the phone but those communications are political in nature there but now i and there is there is certainly no conspiracy with russia let's make a bill snyder he's a political analyst and public policy professor at george mason university is
3:24 am
joining us from washington good to have you with us again how much of this is a sifts in roger stone's position. a shift well he has agreed to cooperate with the moonves to geisha but he says he has nothing incriminating that he can report about the connections between the trump campaign of twenty sixteen and the russians but the indictment alleges that he was the conduit between those two organizations the trump campaign and we keep leaks which was using stolen documents that were stolen by russia but here's the thing a series of be surprised that he is now saying he is. he would communicate with the mother investigation he's effectively not shutting the door on cooperating which is something michael cohen once said that he would take a bullet for the president but then he flips so is this what we're seeing with roger stone and. what we could be depending on what he has to say to the moment investigation is he had any damaging information he claims he does not he has no
3:25 am
evidence of any wrongdoing by anyone but if the trim campaign as it is alleged used roger stone as a connection to wiki leaks to coordinate the release of damaging information stolen by russia about the clinton campaign that would be a campaign finance violation and we're not sure exactly what he knows about that and what he's willing to say how his point how worried and roger stone be one count of obstruction of an official proceeding five counts of false statements and one count of witness tampering. yes wonderful things indictments they can get people to cooperate because they want to save their own skin we've seen that happening with michael cohen and with others and they'll be a lot of pressure on roger stone again he says he saw no evidence of wrongdoing and he won't he doesn't intend to report any but in the end a witness like that someone who is under indictment is likely to do whatever he needs to do to save himself what do you think his strategy is right now because
3:26 am
usually many people say if someone's under indictment then they lay low but what we've seen is roger stone making the rounds on us media is there a strategy there well he claims he's innocent and he's going on the media to make the case that he doesn't know anything incriminating i think he is still a trump strong trump supporter and he wants he using this opportunity to try to defend the trump campaign and to argue against any evidence of collusion but the evidence of collusion is mounting and he could be a key piece in that if he's pressured to testify in order to save himself bill schneider we thank you for joining us on the news hour. now russia has been marking seventy five years since the nazi siege of leningrad was broken for nearly one hundred days the former russian capital was cut off people starve to death in the hundreds of thousands as the german army pounded the city with artillery fire and

3:29 am
country who went through such hardships we should hold events like this to remember . soldiers and modern weapons paraded through the center of the city now called sim petersburg on sunday in today's russia world war two anniversaries are frequently used to display current military might. the white bread all decisions of the from russia but by the way. they bring the right way on. one of the biggest tragedies. i think about the russian state things differently it wants citizens and the world to believe that such a thing would never be allowed to happen again rory chalons al-jazeera sin petersburg the only landing right. the pope preserves crowds at a world youth day mass in panama to spend less time on their phones and more in their communities the head of the catholic church was joined by about six hundred
3:30 am
thousand programs for the events the process appealed to his audience by using words like our influencer and saying life doesn't wait to be downloaded. cyndi's you can see there are going to feel respected and asked to get involved is greater than simply being online life is not a salvation up in the cloud and waiting to be done loaded in an app to be discovered or a technique of mental self-improvement still less is it itchy tauriel finding out the latest news we all know how addictive our smart smart phones and computers can be and their increasing warnings about their impact on our mind body and relationships especially for young people the average american teenagers thought to spend about nine hours a day consuming media watching t.v. playing video games on their laptop or smartphone and a study by the national institutes of health in the us found that kids who spend more than two hours a day on screens got lower scores on thinking and language tests using social media
3:31 am
can also lead to an increase in loneliness depression and suicide especially among young women children as young as four are being treated for neck and back problems because they're spending too much time using phones or tablets that's almost three hours of screen time a day for five to eight year olds and or sandberg a senior fellow at the future of humanity institute at oxford university he says the problems are not the screens themselves but what young people are looking at. so scientists have been trying to do take whether i actually am the ill effects of being online and there's a lot of studies many are going to produce good headlines but when you put them together their evidence is actually surprisingly weak if it wasn't really bad the fact we would be seeing it is generally the picture is complex what matters is not screen time but what you do on the screen or you communicate with others are you creating things or engaging in ways we work or just playing the same game on and on
3:32 am
and old so yes we do have an addiction problem but it's not just because of phones and apps so i think we need to learn how to actually control our use of media and technology but that is not itself the problem of technology this is up to us to learn how to manage it young people are surprisingly savvy in the handling media for example they're much more resistant to fake news than older people it turns out the pacific. has a long history of community matters being settled by the only man now for the first time a woman has been anointed head of the tribal council and she wants to transform. that can't happen unless their environments protected here's her story. my name is lame i lean a step i see and i first see a chair lady of a tribal council in vanuatu it's always been i'm in the position
