12:00 am
the united states by encroaching on what is traditionally the american sphere of interest it is interesting that why does appeal to both russia and china to change sides to back him by saying that really your your own interests are better served by supporting a legitimate president with a stable government which is recognized internationally for all of them staying with. a president who is really presiding over disaster call in a question here from one of our viewers on facebook john who asks how will this situation come to an end what are your views maduro has warned the trump administration against repeating a vietnam in venezuela what happens next in your view if my door is not going to call elections and refuses to step down what will break the impasse. well we'll have to see if things could go horribly wrong still i mean as we've heard it international aid is now piling up on the border in colombia and brazil
12:01 am
and in some of the the former dutch islands in the caribbean they haven't tried to get those over the border gets worse that will be the next step to try and do that by doing it why do is hoping that the worsening situation will eventually persuade the military to change sides but it's is a big gamble because there's no guarantee that will happen but that they'd have to change sides in order for the interest of the humanitarian aid to get into the country it can't be done otherwise and if they were if the military were to allow the aid in and discourses that would be defying the orders of the president maduro who they recognized up to now so i think the this thing could come to a head quite quickly and really if the guy goes strategy which is being backed by the united states and other western countries is to try and really force the
12:02 am
hands of the military to make it to make a choice and hoping that it will go their way thank you so much for your insight colleen harding joining us there from manchester in the u.k. let's bring in leon our social media producer what are people saying online leah about this crisis in venezuela well of course this is the top conversation online and all publications in february fourth is actually trying to hash tag for fed in particular with some colonels in the military even using it to ask fellow soldiers to rise up against nicolas maduro these videos that are about to show you have three hundred thousand views combined with thousands of retreats. i call on members of our armed forces from all ranks that today we put on our uniforms to open the doors of freedom so that it's the soldiers with the people that rebuild democracy we must take orders from the commander in chief the legislator one go idle to end the dictatorship and introduce an interim government
12:03 am

leader for the sake of the people let it go interesting comparison the general watching from liberia also another comment from mama dural asks if the u.s. can declare military action against murderous regime despite russia china and turkey support and obviously that's the question now especially after president trump said in an interview with c.b.s. yesterday that he didn't military action in venezuela thank you for your comments and keep them coming on all of us will media platforms twitter at age or english is a handle to forget to use the hashtag a.j. news great we're also on facebook on facebook of course facebook dot com for slash al-jazeera you can also watch plus nine seven four five a one trip or one for mine. on to other world news now and the armed group al-shabaab has claimed responsibility for two separate attacks in somalia in the capital mogadishu a car bomb killed at least twelve people and injured dozens of others outside a shopping mall and gunmen shot and killed the head of
12:06 am
a dubai own home operating in the semi-autonomous somali region of portland mom and i do is following developments in somalia for us from neighboring kenya is in nairobi monod for a cis was a daring attack in the heart of mogadishu today tell us more well yes in a statement fully on their website about fighters said that they have cut it all the talk targeting siniora government officials and intelligence service officials but the fact of the mater remains that none of those officials are talking about called hot in the rush hour morning rush hour attack outside the new mogadishu more it was civilians who got caught in the calls for. it was them who died and to civilians who got injured is just showing an uptick in the violence being waged by al-shabaab against look on the government installations but also
12:07 am
against civilian targets such as this the busy if. shopping area of mogadishu now this is all about show up saying that despite losing most of the of one strongholds the still a force to be reckoned with and also saying that it killed the manager of a de by government on port operator in portland the semi-autonomous region of the deal to build this port was very controversial wasn't it. very controversial london was done between dubai ports world and the simul total most regional administration of pointless something that really and get the somali government in mogadishu the federal government which would say that was not consulted and even said that it had expelled. dubai ports world from

carrying out its activities in somalia but they still continued to stay and they already cutting out republish meant work of the portable sus so paul and tony for most of the multis national who was killed was in charge of the construction that is going on at the port of both somalia he was killed inside the port by two gunmen who disguised themselves as fisherman. tucked him and hit him and shot him in the head while he was passing through the fish market so this just shows how al shabaab which had had a foothold in portland for a long time and now getting even more brazen cutting out daylight attacks such as this in government facilities like the port thank you mohammed mohammed outdoor life force in nairobi kenya and all the news related to somalia and al shabaab on our spotlight. dot com if you get
12:09 am
a chance read this piece by jamal osman about how the trump administration's policies are killing innocent civilians in somalia it's on al jazeera dot com. now the u.s. president donald tom's comments about u.s. troops in iraq have drawn stern reactions from baghdad on sunday trump told a u.s. network that it was important to keep american military presence in iraq to keep a close eye on iran the iraqi president has hit back saying trump should not shouldn't overburden iraq with u.s. issues and that it's in iraq's interest to have good relations with iran here's what president trump has to say we spent a fortune on building this incredible base we might as well keep it and one of the reasons i want to keep it is because i want to be looking a little bit at a wind because a rand is a real problem here is al jazeera as rob matheson now with more from a band out on the iraqi government's reaction. iraq's president bottom salah says
12:10 am
the iraqi constitution is very clear and that the land of iraq cannot be used by foreign governments to threaten its neighboring countries but this reaction in many ways is no surprise for two reasons first of all the leader of any country in the world does not want to be seen to simply accept a decision made upon the travelling about his or her country by the leader of another country but secondly and perhaps more importantly within the iraqi parliament there is a very significant opposition shia blog much of that is allied to iran iran does not want to see foreign troops on the soil of iraq right on its doorstep that view is reflected within the parliamentary blocs the shia blocs within the iraqi parliament they're even putting together a bill to present to parliament which says that the american troops should be out of iraq within
12:11 am
a year of the bill being passed so the president obviously has to reflect the views held by a large part of the parliament nevertheless this is a difficult situation for the iraqi government on the one hand it does not want to upset its biggest neighbor iran on its eastern border but at the same time it does know that it needs those five thousand two hundred u.s. troops which are based in iraq at the moment for two significant reasons one to help them deal with the remnants of i saw and to carry on training iraqi troops in iraq does not want to see another afghanistan in iraq when american troops were pulled out of afghanistan under the obama regime and there was a resulting upsurge in violence there iraqis determined that its own troops should be trained well enough and properly so that when american and foreign troops eventually do leave iraq their own troops will be able to control the security in
12:12 am
iraq. now all this is coming as iran is marking the fortieth anniversary of the nine hundred seventy nine islamic revolution within a year the country would be at war with iraq which was backed by western and arab allies decades later iranian speak of the revolution and the war in the same breath two major upheaval that transformed the country and remain in extra could be linked in the minds of iranians he has this report from tehran. hamid silly he was just a teenager when iraq invaded iran in one thousand nine hundred he joined the army a just fourteen years old and spent five years as a front line soldier injured multiple times he would recover and had once more into the fray. but his war ended when a gas attack destroyed seventy percent of his lungs and impaired his vision. isn't going to care though the immediately after the revolution when our army wasn't well prepared we came under attack from iraq the islamic revolutionary guard corps was
12:13 am
too busy with internal conflicts so as it happens in any other country people volunteered to defend their nation against the aggressors. it was a conflict that shattered the lives of millions of iranians iran and iraq are now the closest of allies but the war taught iranian leaders important lessons in national security that have influenced policy decisions ever since the post revolution government was shaky and caught off guard. forty years later military leaders want everyone to know it won't happen again. the anniversary of the islamic revolution kicked off with another display of military strength unveiled at an arms expo at the hands made mosque to have a z. is reported to be iran's latest surface to surface cruise missile iranian commander see it has a range of more than thirteen hundred kilometers and is named after the city famous for resisting iraqi forces during the war that dog days and a unicorn named we live in a time when certain rulers who have no regard for the rights of nations ignore
12:14 am
their commitment to treaties and international laws and walk all over them in such a world it is wise that we defend our national security by every means possible despite sanctions. iranians appear keen to boost public confidence in the military civilians here get a rare peek at iran's arsenal and enemies a warning to keep their distance. in the forty years since revolution iran has faced ongoing tensions with the united states israel and several arab neighbors as well as taking on illegal drug cartels and armed groups on its eastern borders eisel and iranian dissidents have also carried out attacks on iranian soil and the ballistic missiles program better iran says is for self-defense has been widely condemned even by its european allies have on it therefore usually a strong you know the level of iran's defense capability has become a stabilizing factor in the region in many sectors we rank in the top five ten in the world and what is important is that all these programs create stability and
12:15 am
security in the region. iranian military might help drive eisel out of iraq. keep allies in power in syria and support the fighters against the south the coalition in yemen key military victories that appear to have taught iran's leaders the best way to deal with friends and enemies is from a position of strength. and to watch this edition of inside story for more on how donald trump plans to gather support against iraq what action is the u.s. prepared to take and what will be the regional implications and interesting discussion on inside story just click on the show stab at al-jazeera dot com and then inside story if you're watching us on facebook live coming up a story about how a group of young muslims created an online platform to share means as from our friends at a.j. price sensitive head on the grades of rummaging through trash to keep warm how syrian refugees at coping with winter conditions.

12:17 am
temperatures up to around four degrees celsius and clear skies to across the reagan peninsula they were fresher than it has been recently temperatures here in about twenty two or twenty three degrees but barely a cloud in the sky. fewer clouds in the sky to across the eastern side of south africa over the next so the skies are clearing perhaps one or two showers up towards johannesburg but the wetter weather will be further north and more than parts of mozambique a good part of northern and eastern i guess. february on al-jazeera reinvestigate the toxic legacy of south africa's mining industry and examine exactly what is hiding beneath all of his toxic waste africa's largest democracy heads to the polls join us for live coverage as nigeria books al-jazeera well it showcases the best of the network's documentaries with powerful untold

12:19 am
trending at al-jazeera dot com top trending that one into the crisis in venezuela with a number of european countries at this a monday recognizing one why don't the opposition leader as interim president of venezuela loss of pressure on the embattled president nicolas maduro also trending u.k. m.p. saying saudi leaders may be responsible for the torture of activists in saudi jails more no stories and much more on our website at al-jazeera dot com. now we
12:20 am
talk about fake news all the time but what about a fake university is here with that story that i spot tensions between the u.s. and india yes it's really an unfortunate story it's this fake university was real in the sense that i got a lot of students in trouble hundred thirty of them to be exact foreign students they were arrested by the u.s. immigration and customs enforcement for enrolling in this fake university the catch is the university was created by the department of homeland security to lure students trying to overstay their visas the students had emigrated illegally to the u.s. on student visas and had transferred to the university of farmington so that they could work authorities they were telling them they could work and go to school hundred twenty nine of those one hundred thirty arrested students are indian one of the largest immigration sweeps involving indians in recent years now the students were arrested in many different states as part of the sting operation what they didn't know is you administrators they were talking to were government agents it's
12:21 am
illegal for international students to work off campus and go to school but some attorneys close the case say the students were led to believe otherwise the u.s. government says the students knew that what they were doing but here's the indian ambassador to the u.s. harris varden we had obesity concerned and distressed about the news that so many indian students have been implicated in this issue regarding farmington university by monday we rely on facts just almost all of us to. be of course. getting did you do for the first time because we don't have the full information we would also be advising them on legal options that have yet to be. india's spokesman for the ministry of external affairs is posting updates to his twitter feed he's sharing pictures of the different detention facilities like this one ensuring that the government is doing all that they can do to help these students now they also have a hotline that are set up to answer questions for family and friends that are
12:22 am
connected to the students we reached out to several family members but they have denied to comment now we want to know what you think about this today do you think the students should have known better or is the government totally in the right here as always has a.j. newsgroup hunchbacked to follow though who is more in this yes indeed i want to pick this up with a side who is a professor of law at rutgers university and director of the center on security of race and civil rights she's vice from new jersey good to have you on the news great again so first of all very simple straightforward question is this legal. facially yes it is so long as it is not entrapment entrapment is when a target does not have a predisposition to commit a particular crime and a federal agent creates that disposition incentivize them tells them they should commit the crime in this case it's unclear whether the students who were targeted
12:23 am
knew that what was happening at least initially was illegal if the government agents are simply providing the means and opportunity to engage in a criminal act then it is not entrapment but there are a lot of open questions are these students where they told by the recruiter is that there was a loophole in the law and that by rolling in the school they didn't have to show up and they could stay or did the students and back know that what was happening was illegal and that's going to determine whether or not they in fact violated the law or whether they were gold will victims recruiters and law enforcement homeless curity asians targeting is a precedent for this for ice or homeland security trying to trick immigrants who are either considering out saying their visas or more generally falling foul of immigration law in the u.s. have date done this before. yes there was another university called northern new jersey university that was a fake university set up by ice and they indicted students and two thousand and
12:24 am
sixteen again a similar scheme where they told students that if they enroll that they could continue to stay that their f. when he says would be extended because they could use their own net in this fake university as a basis to stay so clearly the government is targeting international students which begs the question of whether this is really a policy priority there are people who are undocumented who are committing violent crimes and i think most americans would agree that that should be the priority right now and the students that are being targeted we don't know whether they are in fact knowledgeable that what they're doing is illegal like with a northern new jersey university scam many of these students were abroad so they really thought they were enroll in a university and it wasn't until they came or sometimes they never came after they send their money that they discovered that they were victims of the fraud and that was going to be my next question in fact what does the government hope to achieve with this is this a way to crack down on illegal immigration is just not just
12:25 am
a drop in the ocean. we have over ten million individuals at the estimate that are undocumented of the united states two thirds of them have been here for over fifteen years so they have established their roots and they most of them are law abiding there are one million lawful foreign students in the united states fifty percent of them over fifty percent come from china and india so if the united states government is doing through ice and homeland security is encouraging india and china to send their students to canada to australia to other western countries which compete with our universities to educate them which means that the revenue goes there and also the the knowledge and the and the brain gain goes to other countries so when you try to get six hundred students most of whom are from india then you send a signal to the indian government that we will not treat your students well very interesting to hear thoughts on this thank you so much for your insights joining us
12:26 am
there from new jersey in the united states and you know watch this edition of the listening post for more rich turns the lens on u.s. immigration agencies covert operations to crack down on illegal immigrants legal advocacy organizations have been collaborating with media to track and uncover cases of u.s. law enforcement abuse it's at al-jazeera dot com and then just click on the show's tab and then click on the listening posts moving on in turkey's president say sad your abs crown prince and the kingdom's former foreign minister have lied about the murder of to my shoji recep tayyip erdogan also reiterated his despair at us in action over the killing of the saudi journalists in istanbul four months ago stephanie deca is in istanbul with more. well turkey's president. speaking to the state roll call star mentioning. it is rationed i suppose about how there's been no real movement also referred to the
12:27 am
united states disappointment in how they are talking and this is what he had to say . harlow i cannot understand america's silence been such a horrific attack took place and even after members of the cia listened to the recordings we provided. but he had harsher words going back to when it all began. the saudi foreign minister of course he was saying that there is a collaboration there was a collaborator to dispose of the body of this is the saudi version of course the body of mr hersh has still not been found who said well if there is a collaborator who is he where is he what is his name if you know that he also mentioned the saudi crown prince mohammed of inside man saying that initially his version was that he had left the consulate he said now we know that those two things were laws so he also called for those fifteen men the fifteen saudi nationals that flew into is on the day of the murder he said these are the
12:28 am
perpetrators we need to know who they are and of course turkey has already requested their extradition but the saudis are conducting their own investigation nobody knows who the men are that they have indicted eleven men have been indicted five of those facing the death penalty but it is a very opaque process now all of this comes just as. the u.n. special after a traditional killings has wrapped up a visit here in turkey is really the first independent person looking at this because of course it is such a politically loaded story all the countries yes they want to put pressure on saudi arabia but the same time no one really seems to be willing to go that extra mile to break relationships with the kingdom so for months still no body and certainly a big question as well as to who ordered the killing of a high profile journalist in the saudi diplomatic mission here in istanbul stephanie deca reporting there from istanbul turkey and an interesting opinion piece on. skeletons in america's crossett as he's a kanji is
12:29 am
a legal academic and writer based in toronto canada she says u.s. officials are keen to condemn jamal khashoggi murder but remain silent on u.s. crimes against journalists it's an interesting perspective read it's on our side at al-jazeera dot com. i let's take a look now at some of the other stories making headlines around the world this hour and an outbreak of swine flu is the latest health emergency in yemen the virus follows the world's worst cholera outbreak and as millions of yemenis are weakened by starvation priyanka go to has more. another arrival in this hospital in the capital sanaa another victim of the consequences of the war in yemen fatima is suffering from each one n one influenza also known as swine flu it's known to break down the immune system and cause lung problems among other complaints but the saudi u.a.e. coolish its repeated targeting of hospitals means the flu which is best treated of

detected early it's been diagnosed late or. she suffered from coughing for about twenty days we have seen several doctors in several hospitals but it is here where she has finally been properly diagnosed the virus is spreading graphically mostly in the hooty controlled areas of sanaa souther and abe for hundreds of cases reported so far there's only one type of medicine available most hospitals are running out and pharmacies that do stalk the medicine are charging forty dollars for it the lifesaving drugs are simply out of reach for the families of the patients because they live out of who are now looking for the medicine that deals with such a virus we were shocked to know that the hospital only gave us some of the needed tablets and not all of them because of the medicine shortage. that we and other patients need more meds so we urge the united nations and the ministry of health to
12:31 am
do whatever it takes to make this medicine available. that's a tall order where more than fifty percent of the people don't have access to regular health care listen ha fulfillments hospitals are working at the risk of an x. one n one epidemic is increased in crowded cities and towns teeming with yemenis displaced by war when. we are talking about a massive spread of disease the ministry of health has registered in its latest statistics four hundred nineteen cases of swine flu this is the number we've managed to register but there are dozens of patients that have not been registered because of the inability of those patients to access health centers due to the war and the siege the death toll has so far reached. the u.n. is trying to rescue their cease fire agreement reached in sweden in december to stop fighting in the city for their. renewed fighting around the port is making it almost impossible for critical a to reach patients needing medicine for the x.
