lost them in the work of their. least seven people have died in cross border shelling between india and pakistan in the disputed kashmir region indian officials say a mother and her two children were killed when pakistani artillery fire had a house in indian and ministered kashmir i stands military says indian fire has killed two civilians and two soldiers along the line of control tensions remain high after islamabad in new delhi said they'd shut down each other's jets on wednesday so ho raman is live for us from new delhi so it sounds like kashmir is anything but deescalated. indeed so it's been anything but for the last seventy two two hours especially since the aftermath of the air force dogfight that we saw both between india and pakistan on wednesday mean of most of the focus has actually been on that indian
pilot that was captured by the pakistanis and handed back over late on friday night but even joining that period as you say the shelling continued across the line of control that separates the two sides in the area of kashmir as far as the indian authorities are confirming concerned the shelling has been quite intense and we talked about one woman who died on thursday her burial a funeral was on friday then late on friday night at the same time that the indian air force pilot was being handed over across the india pakistan pakistan india border. the shelling can started again from the pakistan side according to indian officials hitting one particular area bunch and their one man's living nightmare became a reality. northstar now got them first i don't know about them it was around nine o'clock at night when the heavy shelling started we were sleeping inside our room my kids got scared so i picked them up and ran to the other room i opened the door
and as i was about to enter the room the shell landed destroying the house and killed the girl the boy and their mother. a nightmare the reality is all merging into one family people who live in that area many a leaving the area when the shelling begins others don't know where to go for safe haven because the shelling is so intense that across the whole of indian administered kashmir and officials there even have to go fifty kilometers north of bush to a small village called early which is much closer to the line of control sadly and there they have to evacuate local residents to much more safer areas but the big question is where are those safe areas when the conflict and the shelling continues unabated and there's no sort of specific time when these things happen sometimes it happens during the day sometimes it happens in the middle of the night and it is a very difficult and uncertain time for those people living in india the minister in the bunker understand that thanks so much for how raman there saudi activists
arrested on accusations of undermining security and harming national unity last year will be put on trial prosecutors say they've completed investigations and are preparing court for roles rights groups say the cases include mostly detained women activists who campaigned for the right to drive. u.s. president donald trump has asked china to lift all tariffs on american agricultural products he says it's because trade talks between the world's two biggest economies are progressing well the us president also pointed out he didn't impose a twenty five percent tariff on friday as he'd originally planned china and the u.s. trying to negotiate a way out of a trade war that sea did for tat hikes and tariffs and last year. drilling is a china affairs analyst he says the u.s. isn't the only country concerned by china's trade practices china's trade model
is regarded as preparatory and then some of the practices translate into perceived intellectual property theft and force intellectual probably transfer and there's their perceived to be a lack of recent prosody in the opening of markets so all these worries have been aired and they are central to the negotiations and i think that both sides are coming closer to one another. that china. is seeing that these concerns will. is affecting the investment environment and trial and also risk the reputation of china's economy so i think that even before the trade war you know so china already introduced legislation protecting the lecture probably in foreign investors and opening up certain sectors so i think that both sides are coming together but all the other hand. the trauma administration i think is doubling down on the demand so we will see you know
that's what will happen eventually but i think that the process is has been good so far. why waste chief financial officer will appear in court next week after calendar allowed an extradition request to proceed joe was arrested at vancouver airport in december the request of the us government it accuses mung and the chinese tech giant of conspiring to violate sanctions on iran the case triggered a diplomatic route between canada and china aging says it will be watching the case closely to their justice will prevail in the end zone now in fact not only the chinese and canadian citizens but the whole world is extremely interested to hear how the canadian government answers this question in france yellow vests demonstrators are marching for the sixteenth weekend in a row calling for president emmanuel micron to resign the protesters began in
november over a proposal to raise fuel taxes the government later scrapped the plan but the movement has since grown into an anti government rally. and support for those rallies has fallen recently as president my crowning gauge is people across the country in a national conversation known as the great debate the strategy is to gather ideas to form a more inclusive government david chase who reports from the city of cancer it's gaining support from one of the toughest crowds. when the gate closes behind you at number twenty three boulevard robespierre in rants you might lose your freedom but you don't lose your vote the champagne city's only prison is the latest venue for president macaroons attempt to outflank d.l. a vest rebellion and listen to the voice of the people we can't identify the inmates but we can bring you their opinions simonis your life things that you love as demonstrations were beneficial as a guise of not a political party but to people to french regard and young the differences it was
a good movement as it actually triggered his debate a debate that was needed. a thirty one year old m.p. from the president's party was the heart of the debate with the prisoners she passionately rejected their cynicism about politicians and they want to believe i think we are living an excellent democratic exercise as of today we have received more than a million contributions to this debate and that is a success it was time to give back the word to the french people that you do see the big debate is meant to reach every now and every level of society even here behind bars and it is beginning to work present a manual mackerels ratings are beginning to climb once again. the same can be said for the conditions in french prisons they have one of europe's highest rates of overcrowding. and only one of the friends is sacred to be the homeland of human
rights but the penitentiary system is not given the means to guarantee the inmates human rights european regulations require we are to in a cell have a shower and a landline but sometimes we have four people in one square metres. must be debates go straight to the key point it allows the detained population to be fully recognize the citizens as french citizens but radicalization is flourishing in french prisons the debate about how to tackle that has barely begun yet and scores of ice all fighters may soon be repaired treated from syria david chaytor al-jazeera runs. well it's raining heavily again in pakistan and afghanistan the second time in a week and rob's here to tell us all about it yes these are the three wettest month journey from the march for western pakistan afghanistan but it never rains lightly last week's episode coast some deaths i hope this one doesn't but when you look at
what's developing now it's a similar sort of story is winding up here the head of the low is somewhere over the high ground ignoring afghanistan and these sharp edged back edges to the cloud suggest heavy downpours that we scenes record so far in herat in western afghanistan about sixty millimeters of rain in under twenty four hours but of course it doesn't take very much to lift this and make it snow in fact i've got catherine here quite there because that is where it was snow in the city itself now it's been hovering between snow and rain to be honest but a little bit more height outside the city and it's playtime not for all some have to work admittedly current position is it is raining but it's turning back quite a nice showing a good part of pakistan but you can see where the snow is quite happily featured that we're about to peak now i suspect give it another twelve eighteen hours in a whole lot disappears let me run this forward for me from now the green is rain the wind he's clearly snow and it will move slowly northwards and disappear this is
overnight picture levy you with tomorrow the temperatures should be above freezing in quite a while in the afternoon so whatever form will to into mush and then rain the risk of course is that it's forming fairly heavily further north and the risk of landslides is always recognized and still recognizing that islam about weather is indeed a warning out for everybody something. well still ahead on al-jazeera. was. a win for worshipers after a long battle over the a lots of mosque compound but there are more problems inside a hard slog we look at why it's taking so long to clean up one of the world's most polluted rivers. and installed to develop and suffer a setback in their effort to secure a champions league qualification for us here with that story.
