9:00 pm
people. i know and welcome to the al-jazeera news hour on live from my headquarters in doha with me and there's a problem coming up in the next sixty minutes six years after the death of venezuela's hugo chavez the regime he founded faces its toughest test. pakistan cracks down on armed groups on only weeks of tensions with india over the disputed kashmir region. and
9:01 pm
a call to action as millions of tons of plastic are added to our oceans every year . i'm joined again with the sports a turkish footballer slashes a rival player with a razor blade have all the details in the next sixty minutes. then as well as opposition leader why there has been meeting state workers in the capital caracas why the return to venezuela on monday after a tour of latin american nations where he was looking for support to topple president nicolas maduro said he was meeting with the unions to counter what he said was manipulation of state bureaucracy by models government the meeting comes on the sixth anniversary of the death of venezuela's former leader hugo chavez let's go to our correspondent want to unwrap it and now he's live for us in kuta that's neo colombia's border with venezuela he's wasting no time manuel what was
9:02 pm
won by those message to the state workers that he's been addressing in caracas. that's right elizabeth wasting no time since returning from that tour of several south american countries on monday mr why though at the top of his agenda for tuesday was meeting with public sector employees meeting with union leaders it's a very important group he sees them as being groups that are traditionally loyal to . president nicolas modo so the goal here is to win over their support a few of the main points that he's been making to these public sector employees as actually i believe he's still continuing to talk to them but a few of the main points that he's said already is one securing legislation that could guarantee that their jobs would be would would still exist once there is a transitional government in place another one of the main points that mr white though what wants to wants to do with these public sector employees wants to do
9:03 pm
with union sector leaders is the census to get an idea of exactly how many public sector employees there are in venezuela and among other things he also wants to call for a a measured strike a national strike involving public sector employees to continue this momentum it's part of this larger call for nationwide protests nationwide demonstrations to continue a momentum to continue a pressure against the government of nicolas mother and why what is why though and the opposition's plan beyond calling for more protests because. that hasn't worked because the military the all powerful military continue to support the government. that's that's a question that's on many people's minds we still don't know exactly what's next on the agenda for mr why do i imagine that one of the main points that he's going to be following through on next will be continuing to speak to high level military
9:04 pm
officials as well as members of the military that are stationed near the borders of colombia of venezuela with colombia and venezuela with brazil where there are still international aid tons of internationally that continues to not be moving into that country has called on military leaders to allow that international aid to to enter venezuela here in colombia and cook without where we are now with on the venezuelan border there still tons of international aid that's sitting in a warehouse unable to move the diplomatic ties between got back us and have been severed which means that the official border crossing remains closed and there's no clear sign as to when that's going to open and when that international aid will be able to make its way into venezuela if at all elizabeth thank you very much for that that's the mill with the latest live and cope with that thank you. now and what's changed and that is why in a sense the death of chavez and twenty. one looks at how much of this is legacy
9:05 pm
from the. show these mo is dead the opposition in venezuela has been saying that since the president the idealogy was named died of cancer on the fifth of march two thousand and. chosen successor nicolas maduro continues to cling to power and the pressure from foreign governments and millions of his own people to step down. they blame him for around things inflation high crime and chronic food and medicine shortages. blames foreign sabotage particularly from the united states so then assuage his problems but not as colorfully as charges once did here criticizing former u.s. president george bush at the united nations in two thousand and six. the president of the united states the gentleman to whom i refer as at the devil marquis came here. doing all the talking as if he owned the world i think we could call
9:06 pm
a psychiatrist to analyze yesterday's statement made by the president of the united states but says that she is alive and well citing health and education programs and the continued redistribution of wealth begun by his predecessor but even his supporters admit that is no charge that he doesn't have the same charisma or political astuteness he continues to talk of the future well aware of the mounting risks to his government. but honestly i want peace for venezuela we all want peace for venezuela stop the drums of war stop the threats of invasion of lebanon surrealist say with one voice that we want peace we want to be how well the two men shared similar politics the world has changed or prices have slumped and venezuela has left wing allies in the region have largely disappeared the doors critics say the only flawed elections and support from the military keep them in power the predictions of his imminent demise have been frequent these past
9:07 pm
six years as they were the charges before him now president maduro faces one of his toughest challenges yet with the world watching to see how he reacts to the returns have been a swayer of the self declared interim president. from a trip to neighboring colombia. we're going to swell a mark of the sixth anniversary of the death of google charges the opposition is questioning his legacy because with supporters wondering how much longer it will keep the president in office. how does iraq. is the managing director of age a plus and former al-jazeera correspondent in venezuela and she says that many charges supporters will continue to back president despite the economic crisis i do believe that many chevy says have not been very content with my doodle but because of this confrontation of chevy sente chevy of venezuela u.s. many chevy says maybe thinking now it's best to back my dear although we're not
9:08 pm
very happy with him let's not let's not undermine how much chavez legacy means for venezuelans there is a huge mass of people who are from the lower classes although they are hungry but they do not see that things may get better if they went for the other option may get worse i don't think it can get much worse in terms of hunger but i do think that the chavis support base will not want to go back to the preacher. let's move on to other news now and pakistan has arrested dozens of people as part of a crackdown. 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 of the most serious stand off the train and. as a correspondent has the latest. on march the fourth pakistan
9:09 pm
announced its national action plan to take a crackdown on these groups has arrested forty one people so far and he says that more arrests to come now what we're hearing is that among those forty one people that been arrested include the brother and the brother in law of masood azhar who is the leader of the group responsible for the february fourteenth attack that led to this latest standoff between pakistan and india but that doesn't mean the groups are out of action they still present a big problem for both india and pakistan let's take a look at the issues facing both of those countries. they tell me it will be free this group called themselves but they deem it the budget 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
9:10 pm
attack on indian troops that sparked this latest crisis between pakistan and india . god willing the fighters of 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 anti indian 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 done. 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 the rigidity and jaish e mohammed after two thousand and fourteen we have been hard on these groups. know it's a stupid policy of pakistan that. really remains with the state and normal group will be able to. reload to have that ability to use one for
9:11 pm
the groups so i think we are taking steps we have taken steps in the past since two thousand and fourteen we have stepped i think we are on the right direction the groups are active today on both sides of the disputed border in indian administered kashmir has both 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 so all the suggestion that there is some kind of week where millions between the kind of terror challenge that india is facing and what. is either dealing with internally on n.p.r.'s all internal security issues which 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
9:12 pm
a very negative sense because these groups have been assisted by the pakistani state on a neighbor and so where there's yes. 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 party. 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 now the facts on the authorities say they are cracking down on these armed groups but it's clear that they are in the spotlight right now. the arrest may not be enough to satisfy india a may not be enough to reduce tensions between the two nuclear armed neighbors iran come as a for about. now that culture is a former secretary and he is falling ministry and he says that there is
9:13 pm
a degree of suspicion about pakistan's actions the problem is that fifteen years ago in jan that it. to two thousand and four the then president of backus done general musharraf. public assurance that he would not and that pakistan would not in love did it three under control to be used by groups why did his groups to launch terrorist operations in india so windy here today fifteen years later that pakistan is in acting legislation to comply with un resolutions there's not actually. degree of suspicion. but plenty more ahead on the news hour including libya riyadh and or
9:14 pm
a third in the southwest that was taken over by warlords hostile forces the u.s. senate joins the anti anti back saying movement is yes and i will study proves that there is no link between vaccines and autism and the asian champions kicked off the defense of the a.f.c. title to tell you how they got on and score. now bags bottles straws and plates about half of the plastic we use every day is used only once and then thrown away and that's causing widespread damage to our oceans habitats and food chains and environmental organizations say that needs to stop now a new report from the world wide fund for nature documents a dramatic rise in the production of single use plastics since the year two thousand views more plastics than all the years before we're not producing nearly
9:15 pm
three hundred million tons of plastic every year and most of it is not being recycled to tackle the problem the groups calling for an international agreement banning single use plastics they say companies producing the waste should be responsible for cleaning up the mess. so hyra has more. well first of all the world wide fund for nature has tweeted a petition urgently calling on global leaders to make a legally binding agreement but forces every country to end this environmental crisis by within the next ten years that it takes all of fifteen seconds actually to fill that form but the hash tag stop plastic pollution is being widely used to raise awareness in fact this tweeted photo shows you a plastic straw and it is a reminder of how detrimental it is to see life we use an incredible five hundred million plastic straws every day which have been thrown out and that's why bans on single use plastic straws are already in effect in several countries and companies
9:16 pm
like starbucks and mcdonald's are phasing them out now a group of beach goes in australia who are known as the straw clothes are part of a popular conservative effort called operation straw to collect plastic from beaches and in the water. we actually once found an altar boy so there's lots of octopus in this beautiful marine life and we found an octopus holding plastic straws in its tentacles and we actually had to pull them out so that was a bit of a depressing total war and the good news is there are alternatives all of them bamboo and paper straws edible ones are also an option you can actually use this straw to slurp up your favorite drink and then either the store itself because it's flavored and made from seaweed now the plastic straw ban is part of actually a wider global campaign to ditch plastic now the world's first plastic free all has opened in amsterdam and it's part of a plastic panic campaign group that wants to bring it to the u.k. as well and kenya is thought to have the world's strictest or harshest plastic bag
9:17 pm
brand since twenty seventeen where anyone found using producing or even selling a plastic bag faces up to four years in prison or a thirty eight thousand dollars fine but asked lead to some very creative solutions like this one just to school student with a school bag made out of lees and speak in solutions this island in the philippines ruined by and tourism was shut down last year for being as the country's president described it a cesspool now a major cleanup operation was carried out over six months and it was back in business in october well it has left the beaches in my killer and the waters crystal clear before we have a taishan of the island's natural habitat can actually take years and meet the marine robot that could help clean our seas because the waste and data collector for sixteen hours cleans up waters with no carbon footprint and that's obvious obvious his role as the u.k.'s first wave shark on monday as part of its efforts to tackle water pollution and they want people to remember if it can't be used again
9:18 pm
and just don't use it. well let's get more on this now were joined by you in the head of programs at plastic soup foundation that's an advocacy group tackling plastic pollution and he's joining us live from amsterdam very good to have you with us on allergies they are so this report says that the one thing needed to change the trajectory for plastics growth is accountability and it's calling from various steps very specific steps which will help solve the crisis and governments businesses and people what do you think of their recommendations and also what is you know the single most important thing that age group can do you know i think and one of one of the most critical points that is in the report is that actually states that we need a global standard for blessedly get into the employments is the basic ingredients us actually missing and if you don't have a standard if you don't have a goal what do we need to we in a certain period of time you know you don't consider it as a as
9:19 pm
a problem and that's the strange thing that's actually the situation at the moment we don't have the standards yet so global standardization. you know to regular explicitly gets into the employments you notice that there's one of the key elements that we need to actually starts killing this problem at the very source it is the you know the first thing actually that the report calls for how difficult is it going to be to establish let alone implement that standard. yeah this strange thing and that's actually how we bless the you don't treat this as a normal chemical and of course it is a chemical substance why don't we used. to measure it on the tools that are already available to start regulating plessy just like any other chemical so what is the maximum goals and what are the goals for two thousand and twenty two thousand and twenty five etc how are we going to regulate its and yet it's not easy maybe but
9:20 pm
it's a way it's a big step forward if you start looking at persistence is the substance our docs it isn't isn't like you can buy or cumulation and it's very necessary but bless the it costs less are everywhere and it's you know we are green king ads and we even breathe plastic so you know the time is there to actually start or it is and what is at stake for the world's oceans his health we of course depend on for our own health here at a big problem at the ocean as it's almost impossible to clean and when we talk plastic we think about the both laura back at the blast that once the plastic is in the ocean it's actually degrading and so michael plastic or even the not plastic it's very very small and it's on a very big scale and it's entering the food chain no the proof is there it's entering. birds and it has an effect on yeah on the on life in the ocean and we are depending on the ocean enough for food but also for oxygen it's
9:21 pm
a critical system you cannot play around that is and yet also the scale is enormous and seventy percent of our a role does actually oceans so yeah and so much you know which countries would you say a doing well at managing this problem and who do you expect pushback from. on employment in the sort of worldwide regulations that we need now. yeah i think what's going on right now is the government of norway and they actually are pushing for global standards on. plastics and that's a big step forward that needs a lot of support out range there is there are some send those there from countries like the united states jonah they're reluctant in strong language in regulating the bless the emissions. although and i'm convinced that pressure especially about this whole topic of plastics to their children will actually create a momentum to stocks where it's yeah basically responsibility and cleaning
9:22 pm
up the most and joining the solutions because their solutions are there every weekend do it and it's the the thing off there is no market sort of solution to this is not true so you know let's move on let's say that of us it is great to get your expertise on this we really appreciate your time thank you very much that is doing that give us an answer to that thank you. now u.s. senator bob menendez has called for sanctions against individuals and entities responsible for the murder of salvage analyst general casualty kushal g. men and is the top democrat on the senate foreign relations committee and he's one of many senators left frustrated after they were briefed on kushal she's deaf on monday the committee met officials from the trumpet ministration to discuss if sanctions should be imposed on saudi arabia over the murder let's go now to our white house correspondent kimberly health that she is joining us live from washington d.c.
9:23 pm
so what else did senator menendez have to say kimberly. well i think we can take what a couple of senators who have a lot of power in the senate are saying collectively not just bob menendez but also senator tim kaine both democrats but it is important to note that there is unity rare unity on this issue in the u.s. congress with respect to the notion that the administration has essentially flouted the law when it comes to the trigger of the global magnitsky act you'll remember that that was triggered in twenty eighteen the administration was required to come up with a report to congress a few weeks ago with regard to who it believed was responsible for the killing of jim hunt shows you have to remember this ministration said very specifically that it would pursue this to the highest echelons of the saudi government so many months in congress are very unhappy when the state department simply sanctioned just
9:24 pm
seventeen individuals but did not point to the saudi crown prince a conclusion that the u.s. senate certainly has come to after it was briefed by the cia director gina housefull there was another briefing that took place on monday where senators had hoped they would finally get the information that they were looking for as a result of the trigger of the act but they were in a word disgusted with what they were told according to not just bob menendez but also senator tim kaine essentially the senators knew more about this case than those that were put forward by the administration spokes person from not just the treasury department but also the state department so as a result what we see now is the senate weighing its options we know from a statement from senator tim kaine as well as echoing statements from bob menendez that they are deciding now how to move forward and use the leverage of the senate
9:25 pm
this is the upper chamber it does have more power than the house of represent. lives and certainly there are a number of options that are being considered not only a potential consequence with regard to arm sales but also potentially slowing down or even halting the nominations that have to be approved in the senate for anything put forward by the trumpet ministration until the trumpet ministration gives the information the senators are looking for with respect to the murder of. committee thank you very much for that as committee held it with the latest on that live in washington d.c. thank you. now bush counterterrorism police are investigating after three small explosive devices the found near a major transport hubs in london they were recovered near heathrow and london city airports and washington rail and underground station police say the three incidents appear to be linked and have it was commuters to be vigilant. still ahead on the news out of deadly floods when i'm more on how tens of thousands of people in

9:37 pm
day off today we're seeing the delegations come and go from a or so it seems that there are making movements but nothing being said officially as to how they're going to end what's been achieved of course crucially if anything is achieved here can it be implemented on the ground in afghanistan. to sri lanka now where details about the country's biggest mass graves are expected to be revealed soon remains of more than three hundred people were discovered last year and as many elfin and as reports it was part of a battle zone during the nearly three decades civil war. human bones were digging foundations at a former. it led to the discovery of this most creative. in men no question and. detailed excavation of the site under court supervision as on earth the remains of more than three hundred people around thirty of them children the judicial medical officer in charge of the investigation says the site is being treated as

the civil war. fighting between government forces and the rebel time of tigers began in one thousand nine hundred three and lasted for twenty six years with hundreds of people still missing after the end of the war the discovery of this mosque grave in the heart of man a town has led to despair and hope hope that families of those missing will finally find answers so why are myriad last saw her husband soon the right figure are due in august one nine hundred ninety she believes he was detained by the navy sea but doesn't know for sure letting go they're going to get out i laugh and smile with everyone but i'm saddam's i it's an unless sadness wondering when my husband will come back whether i will see him at least once before i die or find out what happened to him. but the judicial medical officer will not speculate on whether the remains in the months grieve are those of their victims services see that was no sign of a clothing but some of the bodies may have been found with metal shackles and it
