12:02 am
right now in nigeria since to some decades and young people. have only one hope is that two to make a change in nigeria and to not to make some more democracy and the rule of law in our conscience now obviously there is a very large french algerian community there but realistically how much do you hope to do how much of a difference do you have to make when you're when you're not in algeria. you know what to today the. ladies are around many many many thousand people around. this place of particular kim in paris and at the same time that is also on the protest in mar say into grooves and all over the main towns in in france but not also in that there is also. in new york and in canada new us at the same time today that means that people are protesting
12:03 am
and they wield. the will of the people or is to have. a contrary we lord democracy as i said and the freedom for express of expressions and freedom for . everyone let's talk a little bit more about that in what is the sense that you're getting from people inside our jury. about what daily life is like for them there and why why they're out on the streets now. yes because because of the people outside that area but also inside of course. the hope is is the same is to have a better and better countries and as you probably have seen most. people around. was a protest in very few sports very quiet and you know were. incidents are
12:04 am
no problem that have been there is just a dream in the twentieth the twenty second twenty five four and the february events and or so. two days before the first of march it was very. impressive and very big events and very successful events to demonstrate to our power and our governments that it's finished for record. and it's finished for this mate and corrupt system are you concerned about what the response might be from the government in algeria the longer these protests go on i mean judging by the pictures in the reports coming there it's been it's been relatively peaceful so far but as you know there is a history with these things throughout the arab world of the kind of heavy handed response from from government to protests like this are you concerned about them.
12:05 am
yes because of. our expectation or our goal is to have democracy and to have. freedom for expression freedom also for parties who truly do the. their job. as. if everything is everywhere even in the word but the reality right now is that the system is broke in order for the critics positions and or. freedom for a tool for all the kind of activities. and that we we're expecting or so is there because as you know today is the third of march and it's the deadline for the worse candidate who are very date or at least two. of the salafis the candidates the candidate we are expecting. some
12:06 am
looms during the day to have clear i hear it all on who will be called the date or no and after we reach we'll be the. relation and also. because. the date will have a big deal in the near future in a julia to manage real democracy to have to assess your. little bit structure and institution of course could speak to you factor been there joining us from paris thank you for talking to us after an interesting debate on algeria situation you can go to our web site again. al-jazeera dot com this episode of inside story looking into the possible risk of more political instability in the country now run another round of talks between the afghan taliban and the u.s.
12:07 am
have just ended for the day here in doha it is the highest level of meetings between the two sides since the war in afghanistan began seventeen years ago on the ground in afghanistan now people are dying in record numbers a u.n. report documented three thousand eight hundred civilian deaths in twenty eight hundred including nearly a thousand children that is the highest number killed since record keeping began ten years ago china ballasts has more from kabul. it's lunchtime when fifty eight year old mohammed hussein arrives to open a shop he sells drinks out of a container and the symmetry doesn't get busy until the afternoon but it's busier than it's ever been. every day we're witnessing burials here there is no space left on this hilltop we are suffering from these attacks the u.n.
12:08 am
says thirty eight hundred civilians including one thousand children were killed in afghanistan last year it's a record for mohammed those numbers come to life in the hills around him he's lived at the foot of the symmetry watching it expand for over a decade. it is very painful in a nightmare from now when they bring the bodies sometimes twenty thirty even forty to be buried. the u.n. says one of the reasons for the record number of civilian deaths is i saw suicide attacks that were particularly deadly last year and they often targeted the shia minority over here and western kabul resulting in a lot of people being brought up here to be symmetry which is quickly filling up. the u.n. report found the biggest killer of civilians was the taliban responsible for thirty seven percent of deaths the taliban rejects the un's finding somebody or struck on our last meeting of china allowed former taliban commanders in kabul spoke out
12:09 am
against it this week they laid the blame on afghan and international forces of the . reeds and killing innocent people people who reads people get killed in the streets. last year was the first on record that more than five hundred civilians were killed because of airstrikes mostly by international forces who say they do investigation review credible allegations of errors to learn and improve but in the blame game of the afghan war the un hopes they can be some accountability i think it's important that the stark reality of the costs of the conflict is put before the public and therefore does enter the calculations of those who are talking in that. endeavor to bring this conflict to a close it's a complex now and it's eighteenth year with everyone that passes the graves edge closer to the ridge line behind the statistics beneath the snow my children and
12:10 am
parents sunni and shia not fighters but killed by them just the same ballasts al-jazeera. almost stuck around him is a regional security analyst and he joins us now from kabul to talk more about this thanks very much for being with us so i want to ask you while these talks are going on here in doha between the taliban and senior u.s. representatives where does president bush afghani and the afghan government fit into all of this because of the moment obviously they don't and the longer this goes on the question is going to be asked about what what role they have in all of this and whether they're going to be included at some point. yes this has been an issue for the last almost five months that the taliban have been ignoring the afghan government and particularly president of any whereas the afghan government has been a dam and that the talks will only be legitimate if those are conducted with the
12:11 am
afghan government so dead has the next hour of political tussle going on between the taliban and the afghan government while they are well while the taliban are talking to the special envoy of the trump administration but one thing is quite clear that my family's that has been quite transparent in regard to having the peace dialogue between the of one government and the taliban and the tweet that he did. most recently he said that he is discussing forty gender points for the taliban one of which for my analysis does include the discussion about. talks between the afghan government and the taliban but as much as far as i analyze i believe the taliban will try hard to the. utmost possible level that the afghan government and rather getting gauged with the broader political polity talk
12:12 am
to the senior politicians such as former president hamid karzai and people around him whom they met last month in moscow as well and just to remind our viewers. that he just mentioned earlier there is the is the main u.s. representative he is the lees leading the talks with the taliban on the american side and my question is will the u.s. realistically agree to leave afghanistan completely. well of course i think they will leave as soon as they're dead sure of having the all the. i mean this is that challenge the security of the americans in the united states and elsewhere once they have their interest secured which is part of the genda right now in doha and secondly when they are sure of sustenance of the current investment that they have made on the afghan governance system the
12:13 am
promotion of human rights and all these things they will not let these investments go in when so that is what the discussion point is right now and i think taliban are also prepared to compromise on certain issues with the americans david drama schedule will be something that will be off consideration but it's separate. draw i think there won't be any other way because americans also have been quite clear in terms of having their forces sent back home now right now the discussion is that the taliban want a gradual drawdown but sooner rather than later and there have been talks in the western media particularly american media that there is a discussion at the pentagon that the timeline should be between three to five years i don't think collarbone will be added into that longer timeline but yes they will be withdrawing and people following this story will look at the did the kind
12:14 am
of optics of this of the moment because you have leaders sitting it across from each other at a table in doha talking about peace. meanwhile back in afghanistan it's looks anything but peaceful there's violence almost every day what what do you make of that. well there are two curious behind what's going on on the back to feed the first theory is that there must be some spoilers within the taliban ranks as well as regional countries who will make. every effort to ensure that get the peace talks detailed but in the meantime the other duty and which i also support is that whenever there are peace talks the in the as a matric warfare the guerrilla groups tried to in exert themselves influence the battlefield to go to the negotiation table and show that they still maintain the upper hand also let me remind you that the afghan government and the international
12:15 am
forces have been pushing the taliban back they have launched a number of military operations against the taliban which has put a lot of pressure on the taliban fighting outfit before fighting said segment of the taliban and in order to ensure and send back a strong message to the americans and the afghan government that no matter how strong you go against us on the military battlefield we can still continue and defend our positions so that is why they are seeing a sudden hike in spike in the fighting on the battlefield the targeted one of the military bases in the south in afghanistan the taliban which has this a lot of concerns among the general public but i see it part of the military come politic tactics so that they can on a bit of leverage on the negotiation table much talk about him thanks very much free time. now we want to hear from you on these stories you can send us your comments to any of our online platforms once again we're on twitter use the hash

12:20 am
to. do it in a good fit quick look at the stories trending on our website is it a dot com and as you can see that once again the ongoing. tensions between india and pakistan over kashmir getting lots of clicks a useful explaining their number one on kashmir is armed group so we're going to talk all about india and pakistan in just a moment. so it's all there for you on our website c.n.n. dot com. so there's been an exchange of fire between security forces and rebel fighters in indian administered kashmir indian soldiers launched an operation in northern baba good and to try to flush out groups meanwhile funerals have been held for some of the victims of the recent fighting in the disputed kashmir region at least seven people were killed on saturday in cross
12:21 am
border shelling between india and pakistan. let's get more on this now from sahara raman who joins us now from new delhi so. what is the latest that you're hearing there. yes but we're going to as you mentioned is actually a district within the much larger area of hundred that we've been focusing on certainly for the last three days at the end of the evening on thursday last week we began to hear stories about a gunfight between police officers and armed fighters that sort of got a lot larger in the sense that the fighters themselves were started to spread themselves across the area so the military were called in and for three nights certainly up to sunday we were hearing that while the area was cordoned off there was a cease fire in place there was still an ongoing pitched gun battle between armed fighters and military personnel several houses had been damaged some set on fire
12:22 am
and completely destroyed by sunday morning the military and the army had said that the operation that ended and that they had managed to eliminate those that they were after the body count so far is that for security personnel according to the indian army press office have been killed two armed fighters and one civilian and of course this all comes off the back of the suicide attack against indian military personnel in mid february that's really ratcheted up the tension that we've seen between india and pakistan india of course blaming non-state actors of being behind that suicide attack were the largest military personnel in indian administered kashmir the fallout of that is now occurring where the indian government sees a connection between the inspiration given to individuals to act in such
12:23 am
a way and they want to clamp down on that indoctrination. and several groups have come under scrutiny one which offers free education to some of the poorest members of the society and the most vulnerable they may soon be closed down for their days are numbered and we went to meet and. it's an early start for these students in srinagar they come to this religious school from some of the poorest families in the region this hot drink and snack is perhaps the only opportunity to eat on the cold winter morning many live in isolated villages and farms so it's a chance to see friends and catch up before classes begin however they may not be able to study here for much longer. the government has banned jamaat e islami that runs this religious school and many more like it in the region it says the group supports armed resistance against india and is a threat to the country's stability. student and their amatus says it's
12:24 am
a disappointing setback to his education. i want to do something in my life that benefits everyone i wasn't very religious and wanted to know how to pray correctly i was embarrassed that i couldn't answer questions about my faith this has changed partly the school has taught me social skills are to be polite speak to strangers and my elders with respect. late last month the central government banned jamaat e islami arrested scores of its leaders and sealed off their homes in indian administered kashmir there's been widespread anger in the community many feel muslims are being deliberately targeted and accused of being sympathetic to so-called terror organizations it's an accusation people here deny and say the government in new delhi is vilifying them for their faith and beliefs. regional politicians are now challenging new delhi you can't jail an idea not is an ideology it's an idea you can't you saw you know in a democracy is
12:25 am
a battle of ideas if you try to imprison everyone you can imprison the idea it is going to further alienate the people of kashmir this former head of india's external intelligence agency believe. me it has links with armed groups in pakistan the fact is that the german has been bad news for a long time. and whether there was a need to ban. i mean that there is. a government to decide. but some of the bad had needed to be picked up and that should have been one time ago this job market leader hasn't been arrested and speaking exclusively to al jazeera tells of his concerns because of the ban and if. bannard whole system will get stated and it will be a disaster for the needy and lot of people especially on the orphans and widows well there's been little shelling on
12:26 am
sunday and the attention certainly on the ground in kashmir has been reduced slightly that's given the head of the army. the opportunity to go and inspect his forces on sunday and the line of control and report back to new delhi and in another development they're going to keep a very close eye on on monday members of india's election commission are heading to sri lanka the state capital to discuss with local officials how they might conduct and work along the lines of the general election india is heading towards a national election will be a hot spot on so many fronts so help thank you is a hell raman in new delhi for us. our kurdish forces in syria say they are closing in on the last remaining i saw fighters in the village of black who's there they say they expect a quote decisive battle on sunday. u.s.

back syrian democratic forces launched the attack against the armed group on friday the remaining civilians were evacuated just hours earlier thousands of left in recent weeks they're being taken to a camp near the iraqi border. thousands of syrians who fled to neighboring lebanon when the war began are going back home the new minister in charge of lebanon's millions of refugees is an outspoken supporter of syria's government is vowed to make the return of refugees a priority for human rights groups say those returning face arbitrary detention and torture by the regime they know how to reports from beirut. a new group of syrians is returning home thousands have made this journey in recent months but the numbers are still small lebannon hosts over a million refugees from the war in syria authorities say it is time for them to go home now that much of the country is back under the syrian government's control but there are those who accuse bashar al assad's government of reestablishing we're

pressing a rule they say the southern province of donna as an example there is a. a lot of. insecurity for the population. for former rebels as well as for civilians people who never engaged in military action but who would have a record. people supporting the opposition. being against the government. the opposition and there are had agreed to a negotiated surrender for an amnesty but some say the so-called reconciliation agreements are not being respected instead there have been arbitrary arrests. international organizations including the u.n. say the lack of security guarantees is why many refugees are afraid to go back. into the conflict and we haven't seen any reform being done by the syrian government towards the security situation especially syrian security services that
12:29 am
are responsible for crimes against humanity and force their parents arbitrary detention and torture and that in custody lebanon's politicians are divided on whether it is safe for syrian refugees to return home but the refugee affairs portfolio is now run by a politician allied to the syrian government the newly appointed minister salih first act in office was to visit damascus it further politicized the issue. there are some politicians who criticized the visit saying it breached the government policy of not intervening in the complex they believe refuge in return as well as normalize ties direct contacts with damascus should not happen until an internationally backed political solution is reached in syria. many in lebanon complain about the refugee populations impact on the country's economy and infrastructure those who hold power say they will push ahead with what they call
12:30 am
voluntary and safe returns for many syrians that could mean more difficult conditions to discourage them from staying in. beirut all right taking a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world the u.s. and south korea have agreed to end large scale joint military exercises on the korean peninsula the drills have been a point of contention with north korea's leader kim jong il washington and seoul say it's part of efforts to reduce tension with pyongyang but the two will still carry out a smaller joint exercise this of course comes just days after denuclearization talks between u.s. president donald trump and kim jong un broke down in vietnam rob mcbride 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
12:31 am
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 it 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
12:32 am
try to help into korean relations good 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 is 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 now a case that sparked outrage in the u.s. last year has resurfaced it involves two police officers who shot and killed an unarmed black man in sacramento county california the city's district attorney announced the officers will not face criminal charges the policeman claimed twenty two year old stefan clarke had a gun but no weapon was found dozens of people gathered outside sacramento police department on saturday to protest the decision quark's family is devastated.
