4:05 pm
to the poem even if it's behind closed tolls. well the the feeling head on the pakistani side a is and it's something that the budgets on the part of minister mentioned in an interview last night he said he had ordered a boat going today five members and members of the security council earlier. said it's the idea that before the indian elections there would be up august on bashing campaign and that campaign would be a cause to try and gone as much. indian nationalists aboard that is that right wing indian religious group gone to de wardes so bugger it's gone he did as a lawyer. didn't modi it appears that's painted themselves into a corner according to most buckets on the on the left until it is important to see
4:06 pm
what comes out of their saudi arabia had already all put. that so did game is going to india and they've ordered all four tried to deescalate the situation but it would be a big important to see read the data to head otherwise the international community or laughter jump in the bucket on a foreign ministry minister rather i'd already did turn to the secretary general of the united nations all asking him to deescalate this very serious crises come out i live in the pakistan capitalize on that i thank you well another that correspondent his fate is jim eland he has reaction from new delhi. india has to walk a fine line to balance appeasing voters in the upcoming election to show that the country is strong and the country is secure while also trying not to escalate the situation in which pakistan may retaliate now there are expected to be any type of armed military retaliation a time soon that's because of a visit by saudi crown prince mohammed bin so mine is expected in india on tuesday
4:07 pm
and leaving on wednesday but india is still insisting that pakistan's spy agency the i.s.i. did have a direct hand in last week's attack on its paramilitary convoy this is because india says their armed groups that are currently in tory have publicly stated their intention to attack indian forces in the disputed kashmir region that's why india has continued to push in its campaign to isolate pakistan diplomatically and financially now with iran hon the boxing prime minister offering an olive branch to try to deescalate the situation india will hold firm that something has to be done about these armed groups in its territory or else they will continue their campaign and really push the all of branch away. and iran has arrested five people it accuses of carrying out an attack that killed twenty seven revolutionary guards in the southeast of the country two of them apparently pakistani three of them are
4:08 pm
ethnic baluchis and one person remains at large iran had initially blamed saudi arabia and the u.a.e. for the attack but now says it was planned from inside pakistan denies this but a group. has claimed responsibility the sunni group says it's fighting against the iranian shia government and for minority rights. now russia says it's open to humanitarian corridors in syria to allow people in the rock band refugee camp to return home to the camp that lies in the remote syrian desert very close to the border with jordan and iraq it's home to more than forty thousand people most of them women and children now these corridors are expected to remain open for the next twenty four hours and that's you when you're probably in the most or you're so lucky to be uncivil as of today the rock band refute g. camp located near the military base keeps having problems the situation there
4:09 pm
continues to be catastrophic and its residents practically being held hostage by the us live on the edge between life and death under these circumstances the syrian government with assistance from russia made the unprecedented decision to open to humanitarian corridors to ensure the exit of internally displaced people from this camp to chosen places of residence. ok we can go live now to imran khan a correspondent who's in gaziantep that's in southern turkey on the syria border and forty thousand people say we think then iran expected to use these corridors to get out of this camp to go where. well all of a going to use these corridors that's the real question here now is to give you some geography you have the. refugee camp last controlled by the free syrian army
4:10 pm
then you have like this no man's land of about a kilometer or a mountain that's where those two humanitarian corridors start now the russians are already speaking you've been hearing from one command just now about another statement from the same commander said that he felt that these free syrian back at the u.s. backed syrian bands as he called them won't allow people to leave the. camp so what's going on is that the russians and the syrians but you set up these two humanitarian corridors but what we don't know what we call find out is whether they actually negotiated with the free syrian army in the elbow or income to allow these people to actually leave the camp and go to the humanitarian corridors or whether the syrians and the russians set up these corridos completely without any negotiation with the free syrian army so whether they'll be allowed to actually leave and use those corridors is a whole other questions one that we don't know is going to happen you don't know if that negotiation actually took place all right and let's go now to that area
4:11 pm
of conflict a bit closer to actually where you are iran and that is the area around baghdad is because the u.n. human rights chief is now saying that two hundred families that are trapped in this the last remaining pocket of territory held by ice or u.s. backed syrian democratic forces has surrounded the villages and is it is expected to be. within days at the un human rights chief michel basher they she also reemphasize the openly gay sion of the s.t.'s and its backers to protect civilian life we think about three hundred eisel fighters blocking the civilians from escaping back live now to iran so quite a clear message then coming from the un human rights chief about these two hundred families also who we think of being held as human shields by us who fight fighters
4:12 pm
. well certainly the idea that they've been held is here and shields has developed in the last few days because isis fighters simply on allowing them to leave the villages in actually the eisel forces interested keep those families within the villages so most of the village has actually been destroyed it's now a series of tents on the outskirts of the village that where those two hundred families are also hearing that there are a number of tunnels underneath the village where the vast majority of isis fighters are they are digging in the syrian democratic forces have long said that they will take this village this last on clay of eisel fighters and they keep saying oh it will happen in the next twenty four hours or so in the next few days but because of the civilians that are trapped there in this tent a village they simply can't go in with the full force of they need to go into writing or to simply it's a capsule sort of kill those arsenal fighters iran can talk into us live there from
4:13 pm
gas and tap in the south of turkey very close to the syrian border. now the field say of the saudi journalist is again urging world leaders to take action against his killers gen dj's has been addressing a human rights panel in brussels democracy was murdered inside the saudi consulate in istanbul in october last year so. the moment has come for all international organizations to move forward as quickly as possible to perpetrate is of this particular dark crime have to be prosecuted and justice has to prevail one might think this is a very exceptional event but we just contemplate that this may not be as exceptional as one thinks this type of crime maybe something very frequent but we simply don't hear about it. sixteen u.s. states a suing donald trump attempting to block his declaration of a national emergency to secure funding for a mexico border war the coalition of ses in clues california new york and illinois
4:14 pm
and it's accusing the president of violating the constitution president made the announcement on friday after congress refused to grant him the five point seven billion dollars he wants for the war with a lawsuit argues that president trump doesn't have the power to divert the funds because congress is in charge of spending our correspondent john hendren explains the how the trumpet ministration is likely to respond. president donald trump faces his biggest challenge yet in the effort to build a wall along the u.s. border with mexico that is because sixteen states on monday filed a suit in the u.s. federal court asking the court to stop the president from moving forward with spending money based on his declaration of an emergency on the southern border they have a couple of reasons for that challenge the first they say is that the president does not control spending congress does under the u.s. constitution the argument that is likely to meet the maid on the president's side
4:15 pm
is that congress delegated some of that authority to the president under an one thousand seven hundred six law called the national emergencies act but those states also say that they will be using the president's word against him he said i didn't need to do this but i just wanted to do it faster and those states say that they are hurt because they are losing money for law enforcement military and drug interdiction and military construction. the case is likely to go to the u.s. supreme court the u.s. district court in california where it will first be heard has often overturned president trump's arguments including on such things as immigration it is possible he will be blocked from the spending but it is unclear whether this case will take weeks months or possibly even longer. we've got a lot more to come on this hour including why fountains continue to be displaced by

violence in south sudan mom after peace deal was reached and the sacred river and ancient rituals of a tribe in northern philippines under threat from a new government project. we'll tell you about an emotional night at one of biggest awards coming up. in the u.s. . has ended the twenty twenty presidential race. i'm running for president. the seventy seven year old independent senator from vermont is launching his second bid for the white house sanders says he's running to defeat donald trump him he described as a pathological liar he lost the democratic nomination to hillary clinton in twenty sixteen he was then in ten defeated by trump let's go live she have a chance he is
4:17 pm
a correspondent for us in washington d.c. so he lost out to hillary in twenty sixteen he's now entering a race it is already crowded with the rather outstanding women she have. right but one of the reasons why the race is already so crowded is because these candidates wanted to get some momentum before bernie sanders announced bernie sanders enters the race now as the front runner he has the best nationwide organization he has the best name recognition he has the biggest network of donors around the country many of them small donors who gave you often say what twenty seven twenty seven dollars or so he is now to beat the only person who polls better than bernie sanders amongst the democratic primary voters is joe biden barack obama's vice president who would then represent that centrist ring center right wing of the democratic party right wing on the economy on foreign policy leftwing on social policy and bernie sanders would would represent the progressive wing from that progressive
4:18 pm
revolution that he began with in the democratic party has transformed the democratic party as a result of his twenty sixteen run even though as you mentioned he is in fact an independent right is also seventy seven could it be that barry sanders moment has passed quite simply. well it's funny that people always say that because you know joe biden is seventy six of them maybe but he just was his age a little bit more obviously even though he has a lot of energy the problem that he faces that we heard what he was going to be running on very similar messages to what he ran on in twenty six feet economic inequality i think we can get used to a catch phrase they used in his announcement this morning of in the world's richest country it is it is immoral for the top three billion to earn the same amount of wealth as the bottom fifty percent of the country inequality is the big issue but also universal health care a fifteen dollar minimum wage. free or at least your payment free tuition and so on
4:19 pm
the problem he has though is that various other people are not running on a lot of these messages because he was so successful with them in twenty eight sixteen however all glee and said i'm skepticism about some of these other candidates come all aras cory booker for example who are very corporate centrist candidates but now they say they believe in and fighting inequality and fighting wall street and fighting big pharma and that's what he does still have going for him that his people believe him when he says he believes in trying to eradicate inequality where some of these new candidates who jump on the bandwagon of a progressive platform frankly have pretty dodgy records and it comes to this because not least because they've taken so much money from wall street and big pharma so he still has a trust issue on his side which a lot of the other candidates don't have interesting times in washington thank you very much he have tons. but honda has announced it is to close its only british plant within two years a decision the automaker insists is not related to bricks hit the shutdown of the factory in swindon southwestern england will see around three and
4:20 pm
a half thousand people lose their jobs the british government says it's deeply disappointed honda says it's responding to changes in the global market and that it'll also start making a popular model in turkey nonetheless the u.k. closure is the latest in a run of pre-breakfast it bad news with this and jack euro land rover also scaling back their operations let's think that al-jazeera is economics editor a bit early hondas saying it's got nothing to do with do we believe that so the u.k. has been home to the japanese manufacturers for nigh on about more than more than three decades and the u.k. sold itself to japanese auto makers as a as a gateway to europe and the japanese as such at the operations going back to nine hundred eighty five and with. turning up there are issues because number one.
4:21 pm
the japanese signed the only trade deal with the european union which means that they will stop producing cars back in japan which they can send over and the tariffs on those will be reduced over the next ten years now. coming up. britain has a transition period should they get over the divorce which is happening on march twenty nine there were a transition period of two years it gives enough time for condor to leave the the u.k. and to basically set production back in back in japan ramp up production back in japan so it is very much related but also related to the changing technology there within the auto industry absolutely yes so basically this is. as attempting to electrify more of his cause by twenty twenty five they want to sell two thirds of the vehicles are going to be electric there's been a kind of
4:22 pm
a backlash against diesel vehicles and petrol physicals the e.u. has introduced tougher a mission rules in europe so automakers have to come to reach these levels but to do that it's better just to produce electric cars and all the manufacturers of moving further and further to produce more cars have it early thank you for that there are chinese allegation as jews are arriving in washington for a new round of talks in the latest attempt to resolve the trade war between china and the united states it follows last week's negotiations in beijing which ended without a deal but they get it and say some progress has been made to reach an agreement before president travels palls on increasing tariffs on chinese goods expires next month from beijing adrian brown explains the challenges that lie ahead for both countries. well lou her china's vice premier who's leading the chinese negotiating team will be on his way back to washington shortly to continue those resumed
4:23 pm
negotiations which will be held at the end of the week high noon is approaching zero because president donald trump has warned that unless there is a deal by march the first beijing time march the second washington time that he will raise tariffs from ten to twenty five percent on some two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese products i think while there has been progress made clearly not enough progress has been made otherwise these talks would not be continuing in the united states it's also a recognition that the negotiating model that has served china so well in the past is no longer working china is prepared to address the trade deficit it's prepared to buy more stuff from the united states the stumbling block is really the the wholesale changes that the united states wants china to make to the way china manages its economy in particular the vast subsidies that the chinese state gives to domestic companies the united states argues that creates an unfair playing field
4:24 pm
there's no doubt that president xi jinping does want a deal but he's not prepared for total capitulation. now around eighty graves have been desecrated of the jewish cemetery in eastern france the damage was discovered in a village close to strasburg and it comes ahead of planned demonstrations in paris against a rising number of attacks on france's jewish community president macro has condemned the anti semitic abuse after a prominent intellectual was targeted over the weekend a report from the french capital. it's the latest attack against jewish people in france on saturday in paris french philosopher alan finkel crowd was insulted for being jewish during a yellow fest protest. to the low low reacting to the attack the french president wrote on twitter the anti semitic

4:26 pm
jewish students union says the recent attacks are a reflection of what he describes as an increasingly intolerant society. we can clearly see the level of violence in society this. anti-semitism which takes many forms from islamist movements of the extreme right and the ultra left we also see an extremely high level of homophobia in a phobia and racism against migrants for daniel can all the events of the past week of evoked painful memories his eighty five year old mother was murdered in a home less than a year ago police said she was targeted because she was jewish. i think that france has fallen very low these people are fools are educated and they have no place amongst the yellow vests during the second world war france is government collaborated with germany's nazi regime and deported tens of thousands of jewish people today france is home to the biggest jewish community in europe but for some the shadow the past is never far away natasha butler al-jazeera paris.

a dictatorship there's nothing democratic about what happened in venezuela in the past twenty years and it should be called out as so instrumental in trying to push to remove nicolas maduro is florida senator marco rubio he just returned from a trip to the colombian border where humanitarian aid is being blocked by the venezuelan authorities what is happening here today what is happening in venezuela is a manmade crisis of epic proportions not caused by a natural disaster but by manmade one of a criminal regime that is willing to starve and kill its own people before it gets a power. it's clear that the trumpet ministration is ramping up pressure on nicolas maduro but the president also railed against an ideology he sees as an evil force across the americas socialism by its very nature. does not respect borders it does not respect boundaries or the sovereign rights of its or its neighbors the president's speech here is being seen in two distinct ways to
4:34 pm
exult venezuelans desperate for change it's a genuine effort to end what many see as a brutal dictatorship for others this was trump on the campaign trail keen to win over florida's latin voters and label his democratic opponents as socialists either way there's a lot at stake for the people of venezuela and gallacher al-jazeera miami florida and the venezuelan president nicolas maduro hit by a president trump speech we've gone out of the market they want to enslave us that's the truth today trump was giving orders attention generals listen trump is giving orders again to our armed forces who does he think he is the commander in chief. the u.s. has confirmed that american citizens were among eight people arrested for protesting in haiti local media says police found the group heavily armed with rifles pistols and satellite phones it's been almost two weeks a violent antigovernment protests in haiti hundreds of thousands of people have
