voice the messenger to carry the message of what we need to do around race or religion or gender and all of these different type of issues that we're seeing spike right now in the united states is is unheard of is impossible is going to be incumbent on the next generation of leaders to take this on that's why you need someone in this role like justin fairfax i've known him since two thousand and twelve a mutual friend introduced us believe very highly of him i believe in his skills and his ability to lead this conversation and further when you see people like stacy abrams who's going to be providing the democratic response to the president's state of the union address these are the exact type of leaders that need to be leading the message on a new unity and need to be leading the message on how we can heal as a nation and that's the only way we're going to move forward is to have the right people in place and we thank you for speaking to us from washington while a member of an armed group suspected of carrying out last week's bombings in the philippines has spoken exclusively to al-jazeera claimed responsibility for the
cathedral attack which killed more than twenty people but the military says it was the work of a smaller group called junk mail and dog and reports on the island of hollow where the bombing happened it's nice to know that. he got in their car but defiant he claims he doesn't have a name just like the more than twenty other members of the a junk jungle group in sulu province on the island of mindanao. big numbers. we want to kill christians this is our goal we don't want them in sulu even if you build two pieces that is the best we get the better days. are you trying to say you want to become a suicide bomber. we will do whatever we can because the testament that was given to us by the arabs you know mom it says we must get to be the police chance
the agenda john is an offshoot of the armed group of which has been operating in the area for decades i so claimed responsibility for the bombings at a cathedral in law a week ago but the military dismissed that and blamed john for the attacks the group was originally called lucky nine when it was formed in two thousand and nine by children and or friends of abu so your fighters later on the group renamed itself i junk a junk which means lost command. and there's ten million passes from kidnapping we keep the two million for our group we also extort money from rich families if they don't give it to us even if they are muslims we kill them too . it's a rhetoric that shocks many here despite previous attacks on places of worship the mindanao region was never sharply divided by religion days after the cathedral
bombs there was another attack in a place of worship this time a mosque in some born the city it happened at midnight eleven people were asleep here when a grenade was thrown inside it killed people instantly this is a second attack in a place of worship within just a matter of days and according to the philippine government it seems as though there are efforts to cause the divisions between the different religions but people here reject it they say they will never let that happen muslims here tell us they are hurt and differing with. christians and muslims are more than just neighbors here. we intermarry we all grew up together we all love one another. there's concern here that last week's bombings will be the last. but in a heavily guarded mosque preachers offer some hope love they say is stronger

a global level asian football does struggle to punch its way to the twenty fourteen world cup no asian teams made it beyond the group stage and last year in russia only japan made it through to the last sixteen but there are many reasons to feel optimistic about what is happening with this hats are taking the last fifteen years a huge amount of work has gone into developing young players at the national academy here at the aspire academy and now we're seeing there is home grown players finally performing at senior level be historical joe i think hats off the national scene resembled the united nations of football can now largely be put to bed the next big test of these players is going to the copper america in brazil in june where the group's alongside argentina colombia paraguayan of a huge test of their footballing credentials but their success is real and it's a huge boost as well as the organizers of the twenty twenty two world cup desperate to move the focus away from sports politics and backgrounds what's actually

every attack in europe creates fear and division amongst its citizens. stories of loss go on told. a sweeping association of islam with violence leaves european muslims facing the stark reality of being ostracized by the very communities in which they live love and moon the tragic loss of life twice a victim on al-jazeera. yemen's warring sides hold talks to try to salvage a fragile ceasefire and a strategic port city.
you're watching all just zero life from headquarters and i'm dating up against all . so ahead israel begins construction on a new gaza barrier the prime minister says it's designed to keep out what he calls terrorists. venezuela's president nicolas maduro proposes parliamentary elections as rival protesters call for him to leave and to stay. we meet the families being failed by romania's crumbling health system the government hasn't built a new pulse what's all in three decades. hello yemen's warring sides are holding talks aboard a boat on the red sea in the red sea right now they're trying to save the whole day the truce that meeting between the so the u.a.e. backed government and hold the rebels is being chaired by the un's outgoing monitor retired general patrick the sides are discussing how to implement
a peace agreement reached in sweden last year it calls for a withdrawal of forces from the data home of a crucial sea port city. correspondent has some out about a joining us here in the studio he's covered yemen extensively so what are you hearing about the talks taking place right now the third attempt. still underway but we're seeing some. both of these of the government trading accusations about how to sort all this whole dispute about the. saying that. a target because of the city of data. which they consider to be a sign that the government and the saudi u.a.e. coalition are not genuine about any political settlement or same time the government is saying that this meeting is about one crucial point which is the whole thesis must implement the deal that was signed in sweden in december the course for the earth is to pull out from the data and hand over control of the city to the government and this is the biggest difference between all the parties and
this is what the u.n. needs to solve yeah because that was one of the sticking points. that the pullback of forces from the port city so is there any way that they can find momentum on this issue it doesn't seem to be the case because there are different ideas floated by all the parties first of all they would like to start deploying united nations monitors on the ground to starting from today hopefully to continue what they started a few a few weeks ago after that they're looking to different alternatives like the u.n. to control the whole area the who things are still of the view that the other ones who are legitimate the only allow for local authorities of her data to take over the dismissal the whole idea of the government taking over. but the government is insisting this is an issue of legitimity legitimacy and national sovereignty but they are not the ones who have the upper hand that's part of the northern was the country is under the hertha control of the whole these are not willing to surrender
part of the agreement as well that was written stockholm did include the opening up of humanitarian corridors much needed for the civilian population of data where we are not well i think the thing here is for the hope is for example to allow for that to take place they are looking for concessions like for example they have been saying that we would they would like also to open the international airport of sana something that has been rejected by the government saying that they will only allow for flights from sana but they have to have a layover in some places under the control of the government like in iten the problem with this particular settlement is political of the same time it's more now about who is the legitimate authority the government is saying that we are the only sole legitimate authority recognized by the international community the healthy say with the we are the defacto political establishment of the country because we are the ones who in two thousand and fourteen made the difference and i think martin griffiths faces the same problem to his predecessors face which is let's start with
one point and then build confidence building measures that does not seem to be working as we speak of just watching the healthy media saying that griffith has failed and that patrick has also failed an indication that there's a growing tension now in yemen ok has some how about a thank you. well pope francis is appealing for an end to the war in yemen that's ahead of his historic three day visit to the united arab emirates addressing a crowd in the vatican the head of the roman catholic church urged to urge those involved in the conflict to respect the cease fire. and he later boarded a flight to abu dhabi that's where he'll be meeting with the crown prince and dignitaries this is the first time a pope has visited the arabian peninsula earlier human rights watch released an open letter to pope francis saying he should use his visits to press the u.a.e. is government to end violations in yemen part of it reads the u.a.e.
plays a prominent role in the saudi led coalition's military operations in yemen since march twenty fifth the coalition has indiscriminately bombed homes markets and schools impeded the livery of humanitarian aid and used widely banned cluster munitions human rights watch has documented nearly ninety apparently unlawful coalition attacks some of them likely war crimes the signing of a peace deal that would end six years of fighting in the central african republic has been postponed the deal between fourteen armed groups and the government was expected to be signed within hours government leaders reach an agreement with fourteen armed groups after a week of talks in suits on backed by the united nations and the african union the fighting there has killed thousands of people israel has begun building a new barrier along its border with gaza when finished the fence will be sixty five kilometers long and six meters high prime minister benjamin netanyahu says it's
designed to stop what he described as terrorists from crossing into israel palestinians often cut the wire fence which currently separates israel and gaza. over the weekend we began building the above ground barrier along the gaza border the barrier will prevent terrorists from gases from penetrating into our territory on the ground i would also like to make it clear if the quiet does not mean taint in gaza we will make decisions even in the election period and will not hesitate to act harry fossa joining us from last jerusalem harry you know dolls are is already fenced in from all sides from egypt as well as from israel what do we know about this new barrier that's being built. well it's certainly going to be a lot more substantial than what is currently in place as you say the current wire substantial wire barrier but it is one that people from gaza can. but
penetrate using cable cutters and the like although obviously extremely risky thing to do given how militarized the border remains what israel is doing is as you say upgrading that as far as israel is concerned to the same kind of fencing they have along the border with egypt which was put in place in the early twenty tends to prevent african migrants coming through that border is also similar to the new fence alongside the new runway at the recently opened airport near elat in southern israel so it's it's a galvanized steel construction some six meters high and it will run the entire length of the border from the egyptian border or the way up to the mediterranean sea in the north where work on a sea barrier is also nearing completion it's going to run along the same course as the underground barrier that's designed to prevent tunneling from gaza into israeli territory that is still under way as well and as you heard from the prime
minister benjamin netanyahu he's saying that this is part of a wider strategy to try to to quell what he calls the ingress of terrorists from gaza there were five people who got through the border and were arrested earlier today sunday but or sets of a lot of people to try to get through just to find work in israel so it's not all. quite along the same terms that is being expressed by the prime minister the other thing is that he said there though was warning even during the selection period lections due on the ninth of april that israel stood ready to act that seems to coincide with the reports we heard over the weekend that israel had issued a very clear warning to hamas which controls the gaza strip that it would consider and indeed carry out military action even in the pre-election period and you were just in gaza harry that says protests there continue along the barrier fence ten months on. that's right and the situation there
remains extremely delicate and and dangerous really even though these protests have been going on for so long there is knows immediate sign that they are likely to to be quelled by the the threats coming from israel of a potential increase in military action or from the efforts that have been going on by the qataris who have been putting in fifty million dollars a month to try to pay hamas salaries and also the egyptians who are it's understood using the border crossing at russia to try to encourage hamas to restrain these protests the head the political head of hamas is no one here has just arrived in cairo for more talks with the egyptians on that front and we just saw last month the the way that this could be escalated there was
a shooting that has been claimed by islamic jihad of an israeli soldier the bullet struck his helmet after he himself had fired some rounds towards the protesters on the border he was moderately injured but his helmet did save his life that led to an exchange of those tank fire from the israeli side hitting a hamas border post palestinians killed in that and so any kind of. escalation is always possible as these border protests continue and the united nations has made clear just how costly they have been in palestinian lives during their ten month run just a few days ago with a report showing that two hundred ninety five palestinians have been killed six thousand injured by live fire in all twenty nine thousand palestinians wounded during the course of these protests which began at the end of march last year all right terry foster thank you. now a developing story regarding venezuela and the us president donald trump has told
a u.s. media network that sending american military to qatar is an option trump also says he has turned down a request for a meeting well my dear oh is proposing early parliamentary elections that's as pressure grows on him to resign but the opposition leader. as a ploy by men to stay in power and instead wants a presidential election or latin america editor of the c.n.n. reports from caracas. it looked and sounded like a carnival. but as far as the eye could see answer an opposition leader call to increase pressure to force president nicolas maduro out. anyone else any other alternative is better than this government they've been in power for twenty years and done nothing but starve us. after years of frustrated attempts they feel changes in the. now they have.
