more snow shows up particularly afghanistan was rain into the south and down through pakistan leaving behind well actually if i'm looking picture seven in toronto and all this time though i've been standing here it three rock in the levant the pictures been a fine one bit of a breeze but not much in the skies otherwise that's true for the south as well the tail end of the cloud rock shows so we might get a share out of it for example in kuwait and northern side and the following breeze a northerly means once again it'll start to feel not quite as warm as you might like in riyadh and there are nineteen to twenty two degrees but the skies lushly going to be white or blue significant rain has been reported in the middle of mozambique in this this arc is very easy to see rain of course some local flooding and of course has more to come in malawi mozambique and tanzania.
when you're from a neighborhood known as a hotbed of radicalism. you have to fight to defy stereotypes. in the meeting don't understand the stories we don't often hear told by the people who live them in all modern history and what men when they. don't make it and survive for initial. sound of the boxset this is europe on al-jazeera. again you're watching are just a reminder of our top stories this hour pakistan has called its ambassador home from india
a move by new delhi as tensions go across the indian administered kashmir the latest incident there has killed at least four indian soldiers. two bombs in syria's northwestern city have killed at least fifteen people u.k. based syrian observatory for human rights says the explosions went off during rush hour. and i do as president wants an investigation into why the election was postponed by a week how much it will hadi says the election commission needs to explain what he calls its incompetence. how people are gathering in several u.s. cities to protest against president donald trump's declaration of a national emergency to secure funding for the mexico border war trump is using the emergency powers after congress refused to give him the money he demanded for the barrier which was a signature promise of his two thousand and sixteen election campaign and she had pretense he joins us from one of those protests in washington so she had how big is
this gathering that. a couple of hundred people sort of just getting going right now that the organizers are hoping for several thousand around the country were outside the white house president. he's in florida right now playing golf last i looked but the point of these demonstrations is to show president trump that he doesn't have support for terror and a state of emergency and national emergency in order from the border war that he's failed to fund through notable channels through congressional travelers which constitutionally has congress has the power of the purse the case for many people here is that donald trump is simply breaking the law he's being unconstitutional by declaring an emergency when they say there isn't an emergency and that congress anywhere in such a situation has the power has been. the only body that has the power to appropriate funds for the border wall would join but so jewish crime you know from the a.c.l.u. now he's one of the organizers or he's one of the groups it's organizing this demonstration i mean so you is actually taking course what basis you think you have
a legal case against donald trump that's correct we're following a lawsuit this week i think it basis is we have the president on tape making it up on the theory of there is no national emergency during his declaration he pointed out that he could have gone he could've done it legally he could've done it the congress you can continue to build up your pension is trying to undermine the rule of law with this national budget so it's not just a feeling to his base which i should be is part of it's not just about appealing to the fact that there's an election trying to rile up his base he has been showing time and time again over the last two years that his goal is to undermine the basic checks and balances that allow republicans and she and so well that will be part of the case it will be make and you know we have much a point of view but the president is up to the president to look out for national security but you know. what in the policy have to defer to executive authority when it comes to if you both national security might not be a problem for well i think something to keep in mind is of the fifteen other times that a national emergency has been reduced and funding has been used this is the first
time in our country's history that the president is using this that actually circumvent congress yes to bed this falls when the president of the congress is where is to be you know has the power of the purse is to make make sure the executive has the funds necessary to make sure the public's providing input on how those funds should be spent and by taking this route he's creating a very very dangerous precedent not just for is a ministration but i think for how we see the executive for the largest in a country but it's a pretty clear they don't trump expect to pursuits to be. having stacked the supreme court with people who are sympathetic to his world view is that they're trying to this might in the end. well he might prevail and go into action as a result of our legal team does not believe. the several the lawyers we talked to across. country. in litigation as well states that are calling litigation as well so we understand that he has provided you understand that in many ways he has been making efforts to push the courts to further undermine it but we feel very strong legal backing that we have on this case and again. from the examples we've seen of
how it's played out in the last two years is just to continue to train it's abundantly clear that part of the goal here is to actually undermine the legality of the practices and also just i mean from the a.c.l.u. thank you thank you very much at the very least for this does sort of the whole issue of the wall on the back burner this puts issues likely to be held up in the courts for some time to come meanwhile president trump in florida is expected to speak in a few hours in around the ostensibly about the situation in venezuela but i'm sure we can expect some comments on his national emergency in between his golfing sessions. you have thanks for that you have a tan. washington other crew aboard a spanish was ship has been accused of ordering commercial vessels to leave disputed waters near gibraltar before being challenged by the british navy the government of the british overseas territory says the spanish ship sailed away after the brief confrontation the status of gibraltar a tiny piece of land jutting out of spain southern coast has long been disputed
between spain and the united kingdom rory chalons as more details from london. so the government of gibraltar says that a spanish warship radioed commercial vessels anchored at gibraltar and told them to leave spanish waters now according to the governments of gibraltar these are foolish games only of nuisance value played by those who don't accept unimpeachable british sovereignty over the waters around her brother as recognized by the whole world in the united nations convention on the law of the sea now gibraltar is a british overseas territory and it was ceded by the spanish to the united kingdom in seven hundred thirteen in perpetuity so the british say it's ours now and it will be forever more but of course with the u.k. trying to leave the european union at the moment relations with spain are important
and gibraltar becomes a pressure point essentially that the british fear the spanish are going to use because they've always wanted gibraltar back against the u.k. in its negotiations with the european union and century what it becomes is another example like northern ireland of britain's complicated colonial history and its territorial legacy coming back to bite it basically in the here and now and making things very complicated as brics it unfolds and the u.k. tries to leave the european union. honda plans to shut its u.k. car making plants southwest of london by twenty in the southwest of london by twenty twenty two with the loss of about three thousand five hundred jobs but the decision isn't related to brakes and that's according to british politician justin thomas a new met representatives from the japanese company he says honda wants to consolidate production in japan about two weeks ago fellow japanese car maker cancel plans to

there was six days that brought what the un described as an unacceptable humanitarian tragedy it began as isolated attacks by the middle east christian group and mostly muslim former celica fighters the stache aid agency doctors without borders says the former seneca fighters suit at least a wave of violence civilians at eat workless caught the middle it says you had peacekeepers deployed to protect civilians at the time didn't do much. you can wait in the society since it is the un battalion which is supposed to protect the civilians has been inefficient when confronted with this violence we assumed a tarion workers had to open the gate of our hospitals or the population could take shelter because they found no other shelter. allegation groupie to buy the city spare and witnesses i low over
a year. so we were watching these elements they were at the gate and they were just filming and they were smiling it's not serious. i want to develop the blue helmets were in their vehicle and they were following the xcel like a fighters they were on the roads and they were watching the rebels burning down the i.d.p.'s site. the un peacekeeping operation said laughing public has had more than twelve thousand members from several nations says twenty fourteen it's aimed at protecting civilians were armed groups control eighty percent of the area earlier this month the government side peace deal with forty rebel hoops after holding direct talks for the first time it's the eighth attempt to get add to the six year conflict now called the al jazeera. a millions of people in china been banned from traveling on planes and trains as the government expands its social credit program that ranks people's behavior and trustworthiness in twenty eighteen
more than seventeen million people with low scores were barred from buying plane tickets and another five million are not allowed to get on high speed trains nearly four million companies have also been blasted blacklisted from a number of activities including bidding on projects rights activists of raise concerns about the scoring system which relies on mass data of government agencies and millions of surveillance cameras. so the social credit system a works actually by principle very much similar to those in europe and america it's just the chinese government is collecting data from a much broader type of indicators like whether people pay their loans on time what they say on the internet whether day visit their parents on time all sorts of those petty behaviors that we don't think normally would be including devout in that about the world it just seems that the arm of china's government is really reaching
too long. and for myself i really feel uncomfortable for to see all those millions of people are affected already by being denied of their access to flights and high speed rio's because a lot of those people are actually all part of the most disadvantaged a group in china they're very much in need of bigger help if they did do something wrong on the key thing to help them is actually threaten cation to cheat teach them the consequences of their behavior and try to help them inside of just taking scores and i can see the system probably maybe by out of good intention but hurt the very much the group of people that it should help. this really fundamentally it's a social justice problem it's also about how they draw the line because i know that many of the top leadership and their families are not included in the system and then eventually who is being being monitored and which group are actually being
helped is their own clear. our war and political instability in iraq have held back its economic development for decades and surprisingly investment in sport has also suffered one discipline in particular has great cultural significance for iraqis ten pegging charles traffic reports from baghdad. it's called tend to taking an ancient horse riding skill believed to be practiced by armies around the world over two thousand years ago and some of these a rocky ride is a rather good at it. is a member of the iraqi equestrian team he writes an eight year old arabian far abroad culture has. this is the fall of saddam hussein two thousand and three until now i have one around forty five medals and four of them were gold but the equestrian sports here are no longer taken seriously they suffer
lack of government support and of private investment iraq's equestrian federation used to be a sporting institution that the country was proud of his club was a favorite hangout for saddam hussein's sons to show off their wealth both owned horses worth millions of dollars which they kept at the stables years of war the political instability means the club's facilities for for the long haul times iraq's a question federation was set up in one thousand nine hundred twenty two during the year is over iraq's short lived monarchy the six thousand forces here at the time were raby and sorra breeds the envy of the questions and breeders around the world now during the war that toppled saddam hussein all the horses here was stolen and even today the federation still struggles to survive. but a few of iraq's elite who didn't flee the country still come to ride
