hello there we're seeing some pretty heavy rain in parts of south america at the moment the satellite picture showing all the showers that gradually work their way down towards ri i realize they pretty soggy over the past twenty four hours and there's more wet weather still to come to the south of all of that there is hot in asuncion thirty seven degrees for us is also rather warm forcing what is ari's but there's more cloud it marching its way towards us and if you outbreaks of rain as well so a very different feel to the day on monday a wetter one and a cool one if we head for the north is largely fine settled weather to be found across the central americans at the moment some weather is just beginning to emerge there over parts of venezuela and that's working its way towards the northeast so they're all one of the two areas where we may see
a little bit more in the way of cloud and that cloud could just be fake enough to give us one or two showers particularly i reports of jamaica and down towards costa rica as well but even here those are the showers of fizzling out as we head into monday further north there's lots of wet weather here particularly in the southeastern parts of the states cold thanks to this weather system here is gradually marching its way eastwards lots of heavy rain out of bad some snow on his back edge and it's turning pretty cool behind it the temperatures in atlanta will be dropping ten as a maximum but look at minneapolis only minus thirty. the weather sponsored by cattle ranch is. my main fish every week a new cycle going to see me simply breaking stories and then of course there's donald trump told through the eyes of the welts jannah least that's right out of a hamas script that calls for the an aisle ation of israel that is not what that phrase means at all joined the least named post as we turn the cameras on the media focused on how they recruit on the stories that matter the most in bad news
to try to force the country's long serving leader to drop his plans to run again. diplomacy not to drills the u.s. and south korea say they're ending large scale joint exercises to ease tensions in the korean peninsula. a bridge too far but venezuelans find ways to smuggle in supplies from colombia. docked can save a lot of mom. moment which could allow the u.s. to send astronauts back into space. and support baseball's three hundred and thirty million dollar man makes after vishal balbir ice harper has signed the biggest contract in north american sporting history. and we begin in algeria where tens of thousands of people are protesting against
plans by the president to seek a fifth term in office a deadline is looming for abdelaziz bouteflika to formally submit his candidate papers for april's election all indications say he'll put in the paperwork by the end of sunday despite ten days of unprecedented demonstrations in dozens of cities on saturday he sacked and replaced his unpopular campaign chief the eighty two year old has rarely been seen in public since suffering a stroke in two thousand and thirteen. the protests in algeria have triggered a show of solidarity in front's which is a large algerian population hundreds are demonstrating in paris more protests are also expected in ma say i mean a protester from the cost citizen movement she's joining us now live from paris thank you very much indeed for being with us why is this is so significant for all gerri ns in paris.
algerian and paris have a stronger bond with their homeland in mosul joins in paris have been either been here for the longest time since there were the independence days or there are young people like me who came here for studies all for economic opportunities to find jobs and who are we all have very strong ties to our homeland. it is very important to mobilize here because we have to be an echo for what's going on in algeria and use the elders everyone is here for you some family there also here it's very important to not only say no to a fifth terms of presidency to say no to a regime that has taken us all hostage for so long for all these decades with corruption cliental is them and they have deprived us of our own country.
well we appear to have lost those pictures from paris we'll try to get them back later on in the show but it is a rare show of dissent in a nation where demonstrations are banned in all of the protests by far the biggest since president bush if he came to power twenty years ago supporters say he restored political and economic stability after the civil war in the one nine hundred ninety s. his term in office coincided with high oil prices but the economy has since suffered both a flake amended the constitution in two thousand and eight to remove two term limits on one the twenty fourteen election without a personal campaign well iraq's the allawi is a political analyst specializing in the middle east and north africa he's joining us on skype from one guy many alabama thank you very much indeed for joining us and . for those of us coming to the story perhaps a little bit later can you clarify something for us is the objection to beautifully himself to the people that he represents in government or do they simply want
a change in algeria. if you don't have any the objection to it started as the opposition to the fifth term to go to sleep then he had the end of the pulpit and grief and pain included. the need the rejection of all the structure of the government and the corrupt. taking place there since the chance for law and especially in the last twenty five years and or the reign with the feet of so it started and the restraint the edges actually ended up with. little very little or no position to be sure. and the span old when we look at the flat didn't want to know. the movement called for the program. or rick perry twenty second and ben ferguson last week.
we can being included also among their demands is almost the end constitutional and should do to reform which is very cold there of course so why are the pros have. very surprising to those conservative geria even organizers of the movement. also been very successful it's not all that limited to algiers this protest movement is almost all over the country and. almost every city even its. wrong or which is in the heart of the algae and then has about a mile of jeers forgive me for interrupting you we are having a little bit of dropout on the on the skype line but i hope you can you can still carry on for us and answer me this there are focusing on. the president's attempt
to go for a fifth time but who is behind the president given what you were saying about the fact that the people in algeria failed that he is not capable of actually representing them and running the they the country who is it that is behind both the fleet in this. to understand going to children little sister. college you have to understand the coalition had to have greatest role because you have a coalition very composed of the military the intelligence services and the limited group that was added by bill to three times when you're right in power the only go so you have a coalition very well balanced between the three. and four very influential groups so as long as the military and the intelligence services are
behind sleep and all of. the broader movement will be a lot and you will last in the protests in the streets and the reaching something that little wants to see i'm going to leave it there because unfortunately as i say we're having a few technical problems with this guideline but we appreciate your time louis thank you very much indeed for joining us the u.s. and south korea have agreed to end a major joint military exercises on the korean peninsula washington and seoul say its part about what's to reduce tension with pyongyang but the two will still carry out smaller joint exercises and as one comes just days after denuclearization talks between u.s. president donald trump and kim jong un broke down in get now robin wright has more from south korea's capital seoul. effectively joint military exercises in south
korea have been scaled back since president donald trump announced after the single poor summit last june that he was no fan of these war games as he called them that they were a waste of money but this confirmation that key resolve and foal eagle these spring exercises involving tens of thousands of troops of war planes ships and tanks will effectively come to an end is seen as a big concession they'll be replaced by a much smaller less high profile exercises these exercises have always enraged the north koreans who see them as a possible credit to war seems the joint militaries of south korea and the u.s. of now agreed at least in part with that saying that they do indeed lead to a rise in tension that these exercises are being ended as a way of supporting the diplomatic efforts this will be welcome by president moon j.n. of south korea who's once again standing in as
a possible mediator between north korea and the u.s. to get things back on track it will also possibly help his personal initiative to try to help into korean relations go move forward to the next step he has stated in the last couple of days that despite the disappointment of the hanoi summit he's still determined to try to resume economic and tourism projects with north korea we still wants to try to go ahead with that although it's difficult to see just how without getting sanctions relief from the united states. kelly is a professor of political science and diplomacy and national university says north korea will be expected to refrain from any nuclear testing in return. i think it's probably a quid pro quo for the continuing moratorium on the tests and nuclear tests the north koreans could continue to test missiles they could detonate weapons even larger than the one they did fifteen months ago sixteen months ago and i think you
