12:00 am
dot com i want to hear from you on these stories you can send your comments to any of our on line platforms were on twitter just use the hash tag a.j. news grid a handle a.j. english we're also on facebook facebook dot com slash al-jazeera or you can send us a message on whatsapp or telegram at plus nine seven four five zero one one four nine now regional stability was on the agenda as the leaders of eritrea and ethiopia met in south sudan in the last hour a joint statement was issued emphasizing the need for the three countries to continue working together seeking common ground on global issues south sudan's president salva kiir was on a tour cut but cut short his trip to meet with the visiting leaders here morgan is live for us now in the heart too in sudan so is what is the latest there. well as in what we do know is that they discussed as you said and as the statement
12:01 am
said they discussed regional peace they all said they were going to discuss economic ties and economic development they said that they were trying to look for ways to try to develop south sudan eritrea and if you now let's remember as you said president salva kiir was on a tour around the country trying to listen to the people and trying to get them aware of the peace agreement that was signed in september last year but he had to cut that trip short and come back to juba he said that he's going to resume the trip after the visit now another thing that was discussed in the meeting as kurds and south sudanese foreign ministry was that the peace deal that was signed in september is being slow in turn in terms of him for implementation there is saying that or at least the u.n. and i gather intergovernmental authority for development which is a regional bloc is saying that this peace deal that was signed in september is being slowed implemented it's behind schedule and at the end of may there should be a transitional government that is being formed but that is unlikely to happen because of a lot of articles in the agreement that has not yet been implemented so that is one of the things i was also in the discussion between the three leaders let's not
12:02 am
forget that if you know which is basically the head of the intergovernmental authority in developing the i gad is that it's the head of the authority it's the head of the i got sorry and it's basically trying to look out for the agreement trying to find regional stability so one of the things that was also discussed that was not mentioned in the statement is how to try to bring about to bring on board the bodies and the parties that have not signed the agreement in september how to get them to end the fighting because over the past two months more than ten thousand people have been displaced due to renewed fighting in south sudan or i hear morgan live for us there in the heart to him. and there's an interesting article here on our website it's about how to locks of hair belonging to an ethiopian emperor will be repatriated from the national army museum in britain there to our web site c.n.n. dot com. venezuela's opposition leader has called for nationwide demonstrations expected in the next few minutes one go i don't know and will lead
12:03 am
the protest the after the meeting with the ecuadorian president on sunday quite the announced on twitter it was coming home he warned president nicolas maduro against any attempts to kidnap him on his return. zero as manuel rappel is on the border town of kuta in colombia so a man well well when are we expecting that protest to get underway and any anything we're hearing on the on the whereabouts of why don't. unfortunately we still can't confirm exactly where one is we had reported previously that he ran that risk of arrest upon returning to get back as the supreme court of the country had issued a travel ban against him after you mentioned that tour of south american countries that he just wrapped up to or of brazil out of him dina but i why in ecuador and where he met with the leaders of these countries he went on social media yesterday
12:04 am
broadcasting live through social media websites such as facebook and instagram calling for nationwide protests calling for demonstrations against the government of nicholas my little promise even though we couldn't tell where that broadcast was made from he did promise that he would be at these demonstrations in venezuela today if you are able to see the live pictures now there are hundreds of people already gathering on the streets of got acas and it is a holiday today in venezuela on monday so there is an expectation that there will be possibly thousands of people that will be attending these protests the one by did ask did call on these protests and not only take place in caracas but to fill the streets of of the entire country so there is an expectation that there will be some spillover that there could be some sort of unrest to appen here on the border with venezuela where we are now in kuta now the latest that we can we can report is that one by dillard did say that if the government. attempted to arrest him
12:05 am
attempted to kidnap him that there was already a plan in place by the international community and even u.s. national security advisor john bolton took to twitter saying that there would be a strong and significant response from the united states and the international community if there is any sort of arrest made against one by deal when he attempts to return to venezuela and any indications at all of any of the the aid that's that's stuck on the borders of any of it getting into venezuela. that's another big question here on the border is what is going to happen with the humanitarian aid tons of packages of international aid sitting in containers still unable to move colombia and venezuela have broken diplomatic ties so the they're the one bridge here and that connects the two countries remains close it actually remains blocked off on the venezuela side to prevent any of that international aid
12:06 am
from entering the country so that there are international aid workers that have attempted to bring aid over the last time that happened that aid convoy was burnt down at least one truck of international aid was burned but people are finding other ways of getting around the border and finding ways of getting aid across into into venezuela but the big question remains over the fate of these tons of humanitarian aid that continue to sit here on the border in these containers all right for the moment manuel ruffled live for us there in kuta. colin harding is a latin america analyst and director of latin form he joins us live from manchester via skype thanks very much for being with us so a lot of people would be wondering why is why does returning to venezuela when there is a good chance that he could be arrested or maybe as the cynics suggest that's just the point if we're looking at this as a propaganda battle. well yes he's making his calculations and
12:07 am
he really after they what amounted to the failure of the tent to get humanitarian aid over the border on the twenty third of february he knows that he has to try and regain the initiative and generous in the men's and again be full of disillusionment sets and he did promise to get the agent and failed so people might stop thinking that well he can't deliver so he knows he has to try and get back into venezuela and we see him leadership of the internal movement and this there and he's calculating this support an international community of the stress and sanctions of further action against the major government by the international community plus they the magnitude of the tests and his support will it make the regime say trying to back trying to arrest him because then if you know accusations as well among us that they will be so that tough it out they'll be able to arrest him without too many to dire consequences everybody is trying to assess that once
12:08 am
and happen next and then of course in the border situation near colombia thousands of venezuelans would come into colombia daily to work to buy food to take back and that crossing was a lifeline for them and if it's closed along with the rest of the border then the anger just constant continues to build inside venezuela doesn't it. well it does yes of course god does that self but he realizes now this that this is not going to they are quick and easy. this is the regime that this is going to take a long time and he's hoping best they did the effect of sanctions their fact of growing popular support for him many expressions of support will eventually wear the government down and most crucially will convince the armed forces and security forces that their interests lie in switching sides but it certainly hasn't happened
12:09 am
yet something like seven hundred members of the security forces are sent to fetch game signs well that's certainly a small proportion what they need now it's thirty units led by officers to take over to go out and when we look at the support the one why don't he's getting from other countries particularly the united states which seems to be the most you know doing the most to to to support him is there a political risk given the way the trumpet ministration is seen by by many other countries right now in a world. where yes i think if the united states did resort to some kind of military action that would that would that cause these support of other latin american countries to fall away very quickly i mean that they directed at the iraqis states a direct intervention in latin american affairs is pretty dire and of course quite doing so doesn't want to be seen as a puppet of the united states which is what the opposition been depicting him as so
12:10 am
yes that there are risks on all sides and in fact a spokesman for the united states has been really emphasizing diplomatic and political actions rather than now. ok although the possibility of a military action is not be taken off the table that they're downplaying the possibility at the moment and settling in for the long long haul the sanctions against regime figures and against the particular stage oil company will eventually house their effect so how do you see this standoff playing out then at the moment well it's anybody's guess isn't there we know that right those jews who arrived he said he was going to land and mike it was etc this which is what as he said what presidents do i mean that they don't see him but eventually arrive at their will to be met by by officials he said they theory they the government the matter of government is that it will be a reception committee for investors will have the implication that they will arrest him and take him off. we really don't know how it's going to work as we go to sleep
12:11 am
but it is going to write. we don't know what the reception for it is going to be in each of the last recourse i suppose that the look sick of the security measures that might appear but a lot of the what we know are heading to the airport that people taking to the streets think there are conspiracy and in other towns too he's hoping there will be a massive ten hours and this will discourage the the government and security forces from trying to have arrested we take you away good to speak with you calling harding joining us there from manchester in the u.k. . or why don't like we just heard our supporters to rally in the streets of venezuela for his return and he's done a fair share of social media outreach to where a great deal of story has been happening really tell us more that's right has i'm well as miles up and has said one that has been running support on twitter often has followers to fill the streets and welcome him back home and this comes as many are mocking the annual con of all in venezuela and his followers are now calling
12:12 am
for a boycott of the festival and only to celebrate after y. dos or ten. meanwhile president nicolas maduro has also been active on facebook and twitter promoting construction projects and boosting tourism and sports investments for what he calls the future of venezuelan potential he's also reassure people that the yearly carnival will be celebrated despite the crisis in venezuela sharing images like these. and the humanitarian side of things is quite bleak as well hyperinflation is so extreme that venezuelans caught by enough food the average minimum monthly salary for many is about five dollars now a group of chefs from around the world are trying to feed people suffering from conflicts they use in the hashtags chefs for the people and chefs for venezuela they found jose andres has been involved in a number of initiatives from indonesia to the united states now he's currently along the colombian venezuelan border working with n.g.o.s to feed the hungry for
12:13 am
daily use that they've been abused to see if we can defeat them to help the great people but no political. right to build your pregnant these. people are hungry and we need to make sure that. food and hundred this and become a political one for anybody. that would be. well get in touch with us if you are in venezuela or have another story i'd like to share tweet us use the hash tag eighteen use good or for more on venezuela's crisis news updates on latin america you can go to our website as you know dot com our journalists are everywhere continuously making sense of what's happening and bring it the tip of your fingers so on there dot com now severe weather is also hitting parts of afghanistan and pakistan heavy rain caused flooding and landslides at least fifty people have been killed the afghan government says it was the worst flooding in
12:14 am
kandahar in at least seven years shala bellus reports from kabul. the afghan military flying over flooded kandahar province on a mission to rescue one thousand people trapped by floods there's been heavy rain in afghanistan and southern pakistan for more than a week on saturday flash floods swept through towns and villages across the region we didn't just do your part and i would prefer that a disaster took place in kandahar as there is no drainage and there is little public awareness which is why so many people were affected most of the fixed people were already eternally displaced and living on the river banks so they were hit harder than the others the traditional homes constructed from modern clay stood little chance as the flood waters search through the rose garden or farmer or i'm a poor man the walls of my house have been damaged my two children were injured i'm asking the government to help me by providing tents it was a sale and a city and they were distributing emergency aid on the advice of the governor we
12:15 am
made a list of three hundred ninety seven families of that two hundred fifty families had their homes fully destroyed the u.n. is sending teams in sitting up shelters to help the displaced i think another issue that we're dealing with is accessibility in some of the more rural areas that were only just getting to people are quite cut off they are quite vulnerable so obviously an event like this has a big impact on. the destruction extends from kandahar through six different provinces to harass and far in the west for than five hundred homes have been damaged or destroyed as well as schools mosques and bridges in pakistan the southern province of baluchistan has been hardest hit the military rescued hundreds of families stranded by flood waters relief camps have been set up for those at high altitudes dealing with heavy snow. back in afghanistan most people were hurt as their homes collapsed around them others was swept away in the waters in
12:16 am
kandahar those who could travel made their way from far away districts tomorrow i say hospital. couldn't shoot as half a dozen medical teams try to reach flooded areas. but we have received in this hospital twelve dead bodies which include six men one woman and five children as well as thirty five injured safe many people remain missing and in such remote areas of afghanistan and pakistan it was going to take some time to assess how many lives and positions having lost. is there a couple. now here in doha it's been another day of talks between the u.s. and the afghan taliban while that was going on talabani representatives said they also met with was back a stance foreign minister they say the government has promised to write a piece and provide economic assistance but it appears to have happened without the afghan government's consent stephanie decker has more on the u.s. taliban talks in. these talks are now into their second week six
12:17 am
days of talks there was a two day pause for the delegations to consult they're being very secretive about the details not really wanting to speak to the media but we know from both sides that one of the main issues on the table is the withdrawal of foreign forces american forces from afghanistan the taliban want them out as soon as possible some people say in a matter of months the americans saying that it's going to take longer than so these are specifically trying to be ironed out they're working groups also involved to look at the details of what are very complicated issues the bigger picture of a cease fire not really being discussed from what we understand and of course there have been taliban attacks happening as those talks are taking place in that hotel behind me so we're going to have to wait and see what comes out of these talks in the next couple of days perhaps whether there will be a statement and of course whether whatever is achieved here at the political

american citizen over neato is one of the richest regions in europe and one of the economic powerhouses of italy it's also where the country's far right party known as the league has thrived nearly a third of the region voted for the party and its anti immigration policies in recent elections but a sign you're going to go of course now migrant labor is crucial to the success of the region. a city steeped in history and as with other parts of italy their own is people are fiercely protective of their identity and customs so much so that protecting these was one of the foundations for the likud party. is where the league has always been important in terms of right wing parties and identity terry a movement it's an experiment into right wing politics we are battling for an identity and cause for defending security and against illegal uncontrolled immigration and the issue of immigration is always close to the top of the party's
12:28 am
agenda there is a history of the extreme right here in verona back to the days of when it was part of the republic of salo during world war two and nazi puppet state these days it is the league that rules here and they found the fervor of near fascist organizations here problem is that their anti immigrant rhetoric collides with the reality and that is that migrants are very much a part of the success of this wealthy region. it's heavy work making motorized outdoor tools in this factory the assembly line chan's out lawnmowers and tractors one of the many industrial operations that defines venet off as a powerhouse i had a look along the shop floor reveals how diverse the eight hundred strong workforce is the factory could not keep up with demand or maintain its leadership in the
12:29 am
market without italian workers i don't think it about politics we take it about the business and when the business come into the matter so the integration is something that you have to do because you want a wonderful product you want quality you want to fish and sea and you cannot have it without integrity whatever going to work is your environment. but while ten percent of the region's population is made up of migrants anti immigration political parties have flourished then it'll still be coming in. the immigrant labor force is indispensable in venator especially in small to medium sized businesses more so in this region than in any other but also has one of the oldest populations in the country which needs to mess to employees from this workforce but despite this the anti immigration strategy has worked for the leak in this region turning fears into slogans has proved profitable for the politicians in terms of
12:30 am
votes but some businesses are asking without the immigrant workers would we still be making a profit on it oh yeah al-jazeera verona venator the chief financial officer from hawaii facing extradition to the us is suing the canadian government when one jones lawyers say her rights were violated when she was detained and questioned in vancouver last december lawyers say she thought it was a routine customs check last week out of the start of the process to extradite her to the u.s. where she is accused of violating sanctions on iran. in the u.s. a rescue crews in alabama alabama have resumed the search for victims after a series of tornadoes hit the state on sunday so far more than twenty people have been killed dosage of body has the latest this is what is left of lee county in eastern alabama after several tornadoes struck on sunday the u.s.

12:37 am
a closer to back down the investigation into michael flynn and also as you well know. next question battlefield washington on al-jazeera. i'm. alive again let's find out what people are talking about in sport today his son thank you very much a has him off the years in the online slow lane a formula one is heading into its new season as the fastest growing made to sport all social media a new documentary series that is the latest effort by f one to open itself up to
12:38 am
a new audience. the day the trend i'm not excited to. learn. how to do it the bigger the story was. the netflix production a drive to survive is one aspect of f one's push to engage with the younger audience the series premieres this week just ahead of the year's first call p m l been followers across a facebook twitter instagram and you tube went up by more than fifty percent in two thousand and eighteen while the long time owner of formula one no was been eclipsed that he famously described social media as a still lived fad while attitudes changed when the american company liberty media bought the sport at the start of twenty seven thousand last year f one is global t.v. and digital audience was up ten percent just over four hundred ninety million unique
12:39 am
view as a sole the sport in twenty eighteen that included a twenty percent rise in the united states. well we spoke to one writer luke's myth about the new netflix series and how reporting on the sport has changed since at least since departure. well these things like allowing filming in which it may seem like a very simple thing but the old owners thought that was not allowed in that's us not really a very easy way to get content out there nowadays and to just dump something very quickly on a new phone put it on twitter and other schools about that's allowed and in formula one it was never ever allowed it is very strictly regulated now they've extended it so the teams can sell because they previously won lots of film themselves. which is pretty really good and that just gives i think found some more sort of human side to the sport but they get to see more of what actually pros on inside of it. but.
12:40 am
i want to show you more on us now it's a good school they want to make it. so attracts a younger audience as well which is something that in the past maybe wasn't thought about so much now they know that they need younger people watching the sport they've got an aging found banks and the easy way to get some is through social media. these guys and the most going to pilot mentality and that's what separates them from him. so you have been able to watch the first couple of episodes and it's amazing it's so good it really does give a great insight into the team and really lifts the lid on formula one which is which is good. it's hard for a bag of. this but i think one of the concerns that many of us odd was that it would be too much about form to wander and if you're casual fan you wouldn't really be up to what. but actually it's the right mobs if your new comments are any casual fan it does really explain nothing for
12:41 am
a while and. as well it's just grew like human stories and i think it's going to be a big i think a lot of but will fans in transit in formula one. well one of the biggest cycling events ever to take place in africa has just finished this year's tour was upgraded by the sport's governing bodies so it could include a world tour team's on sunday the overall title was one biased on a rider. only one other race in africa is in the category that takes place in a ball but i wonder as week long event is now the toughest stage race on the continent it's also the best supported attracting hundreds of thousands of fans well felix is the man behind the first globally recognized continent cycling team based at wanda he sent us this video from. someone told her
12:42 am
a wonder has made a lot of progress compared to last year it's a great boost for us as we don't have a lot of proteins in the country we had told c.b.s. competing this time out for example a stoner who won the race with a local team learnt so much from them the race is growing and becoming ever more popular we had a lot of global t.v. channels covering the events it really is exceptional progress the feedback we had from the european and asian teams was good they were impressed with the organization and the level of competition after the success we had staging this tool it should open up its host to twenty twenty five road world championships that would be good not just for us but cycling globally and it will help the sport expand throughout africa we know we're capable of staging such a big event rwanda has good infrastructure plenty of hotels and great routes so we will be a fantastic achievement so one day host the world championships and the striker maya by the telly has taken his use of social media to another level by the telly was obviously pretty confident of scoring in this match against assented

and tested it medical labs across the united states now julius and two hundred sixty eight other chimpanzees are living a life of leisure at louisiana's chimp pavan the world's largest chimp retirement home. they get treatments for the usual ailments for the elderly. we see diabetes we see kidney failure we see liver insufficiency arthritis periodontal disease. and they get specialized medical care and the occasional healthy treat. they are living out the chip life they get to make choices they can decide if they want to be indoors or if they want to be outdoors. that happened. three years after the u.s. government ended invasive testing on chimpanzees there are now more chimps here than in government funded laboratories. inching pavan is rapidly making room for the remaining one hundred eighty tests chimps hey are you are ready for the release

of anything anybody ever did about. some labs hit insisted the chimp should be retired where they are in the labs that experimented on them but in october the us national institutes of health decided that all chimps who are healthy enough to travel be brought here. this is a far cry from the lives chimpanzees lived in research labs instead of serving humankind with their bodies. they're being catered to themselves. so i'm like julie as we're born in the wild others have never seen a tree you would think if you gave a chimp a tree they would climb it that's not true chimps are territorial sometimes fatally so to newcomers so any fultz is part behaviorist part mammal matchmaker when they arrive we actually go into observations on the groups and on the individuals and try to see where we think that they're going to best fit in and with what family
