to be using the pristine. critics. after. what i want to. read. came members of a pakistan based armed group blamed for last month's bombing are among dozens of people arrested. and welcome to our own life for my headquarters in doha with me and iran i'm also ahead libya reopens a huge oil field that was taken over by militia groups. venezuela's opposition leader is welcome home by cheering supporters and plans for the other huge protests
8:01 pm
against president nicolas maduro and a patient in london becomes only the second person to go into a child's favorite mission we'll explain how. pakistan has arrested dozens of people as part of a crackdown on armed groups they include suspects linked to an attack that killed more than forty indian troops in the disputed kashmir region last month a group called jaish e mohammad said it was responsible and the brother of its leader was one of those arrested the bombing triggered the most serious standoff between india and pakistan and years now once again on the groups operating in the greater disputed kashmir region are under the spotlight as pakistan and india continue to face off against each other and wrong khan looks at who these groups are and who supports them. and they just. all kish meet will be free this group called themselves dean the
8:02 pm
brother of holy warriors their leader mohammed haroun he's a firebrand cleric who supports armed groups across kashmir including jaish e mohammed that's the group who claimed responsibility for the february fourteenth attack on indian troops that sparked this latest crisis between pakistan and india . god willing the fighters of al bad are already across the country and are ready to pounce on their targets and are waiting for the right time and god willing this year will be the liberation of the whole of kashmir. the ante in the pro united kashmiri ideology is fundamental to all of the groups in the region india has long maintained that these groups are directly funded and directed by pakistan's intelligence service the i.s.i. it's a charge pakistan the noise however the question remains what is pakistan doing about groups like al but their majority and jaish e mohammad after two thousand and fourteen we have been hard on these groups
8:03 pm
know it's a stupid policy in pakistan that. remain in this state a normal group and we have been to. reload to have the ability to use one in four groups so i think we are taking steps we have taken steps in the past since two thousand and fourteen we have been stepped i think we are on the right that. the groups are active today on both sides of the disputed border in indian administered kashmir hizbollah mojahedin regularly now attacks on indian troops yet india insists it's a domestic issue and says there's no comparison between groups on either side of the disputed border sold the suggestion that there is some kind i require balance between the kind of better challenge that india is facing. and what barbara starr is either dealing with internally on n.p.r.'s all internal security issues which
8:04 pm
are related to the northeast have completely i would say different contours and it's a different profile so this is a case of apples and oranges in a very negative sense because these groups have been assisted by the pakistani state on a neighbor and so where there's yes your mama. you cannot compare them with what is happening with groups in india because they are being sustained and they are the strategic assets of the pakistani army there are many in kashmir who say that the indian army is occupying kashmir and that the groups are a direct consequence of that india says it's there for security reasons meanwhile its armed groups in pakistan that seem to be garnering the most attention the issue of armed groups and who supports them is a phony one in pakistan not a factor in your forty's say they are cracking down on these armed groups but it's clear that they are in the spotlight right now. the arrest those may not be enough
8:05 pm
to satisfy india i'm a little be enough to reduce tensions between the two nuclear on neighbors iran coming out as there was a for about. let's move on to other news now venezuela's officer is missing state workers in the capital caracas on why they made the announcement on twitter saying the meeting will cover state bureaucracy which he says is being manipulated by president government by their return to venezuela on monday after a tour of latin american nations challenge with iran's leadership and called for more protests. and i was following developments from kolkata near the colombian venezuelan a hoarder. there's certainly less attention on tuesday now that is back in got back us there was so much uncertainty on monday waiting to see if mr by the would be arrested if he would be detained after arriving from that tour of several south american countries we know of course that that was not the case although mr white bill had announced that there would be a plan a sort of outline of
8:06 pm
a strategy by the opposition we haven't heard what those concrete steps are going to be he hasn't announced that just yet one by bill however has called for more protests to take place on tuesday as well as calling for that momentum against the government of need. to continue into the weekend calling for protests to take place on saturday as well now to that point we have yet to hear any word from the country's president nicolas maduro he's remained silent up until now on the news that that is back in the country both leaders remain in battled in this locked in this in this in this power struggle over control of the country now here on the venezuela colombia border things remain calm we say things are calm but there is a heavy military presence on both sides of the border that border the official crossing remains closed preventing international aid from making it across from colombia into venice that is one of the points one by don't made while he addressed
8:07 pm
supporters in that crowd of thousands of people on monday calling on the military on the venezuelan military to allow the passage of that international aid to to to make it into venezuela but at the moment we're expecting to hear we're waiting to hear from both the opposition leader one by bill and the country's president nicolas my little about what the next steps are going to be what the next what the next moves are going to be in this in this crisis in venezuela now to a developing story out of the united kingdom police and the u.k. said they've launched a counter terrorism investigation off the explosive devices were found at hay through airport london city airport and at horsham new station has got all cost on john paul brennan he's joining us live from london we've had a statement from the metropolitan police paul tell us what they're saying. yes let me go through it i mean three devices discovered within the space of just over two hours between nine fifty five this morning and ten past noon one of the devices
8:08 pm
went off and the other two have been recovered intact the police statement has said that basically they were a four sized white envelope white postal bags and i give you a sense that is a a four sheet of paper so you see the type of size of article that we're talking about and inside that envelope was a small yellow jiffy bag that's a padded bag in which what's described by the police as a small improvised explosive device i would take issue with that to be honest from what they're telling us they are capable of initially starting a small fire i think it's probably more accurate to describe them as small incendiary devices as opposed to explosive devices but nevertheless explosive is what the is what the police are saying first package was found the compass center which is near heathrow airport second device was found in the post room of waterloo station and one of the busiest railway stations in the center of london and the third device
8:09 pm
a ten thousand was found at london city airport and locations well they may or may not be significant the first one the compass center is the registered office of heathrow airport limited the call percent see heathrow airport and the final device was addressed to city aviation house and that's the corporate entity for city airport limited so we could speculate as to whether the person sending a person a person sending these are targeting aviation sense of transport house because of the corporate side of things nevertheless the police are keeping an open mind at this point in time no arrests have been made and they are urging people who are receiving potentially receiving a package of that description to be extremely vigilant and to call officers in if they have any worries at all paul thank you very much for that for now that's paul brennan live in london of course. there are any developments in the story thank you paul. now libya's national oil corporation is restarting limited production and production at its shut out

8:26 pm
say there is a full you know. we really want to recognize that there is a lot of further work that is needed to be done to define a particular overseas stem cell transplants that are highly complex that significant interventions and not something we can use for the twenty seven million people living with hiv so there's a lot more work we need to do to to make this a bannable more generally as as a successful. solution for the problems at the moment we have highly effective antiretroviral medicines that. are very very effective if they have low levels of resistance that have low levels the talks to city and they are a key key aspect of what we would encourage countries to continue to invest in but i do want to stress we also say this is a great step forward and it is really important that we continue to invest in and scientific innovation such as this now a study of more than half
