a dictatorship it is a state presidency really and people. from a new era joins us live now from near the colombia venezuela border first of all why do you think it. is meeting the state workers what's is a. opposition leader. is meeting with opposition leaders as you mentioned this is actually very high on his agenda for today one of the reasons why this is so important is because these are groups public workers union leaders these are groups that are traditionally loyalists to president nicolas mother to these are groups that over the years have been loyalists to the revolution itself so it's important for him strategy wise it's important for the venezuelan opposition to win over their support so one of the a few of the points that were discussed during that meeting between one and these public sector workers these union leaders one was a request by these groups to secure legislation that would guarantee that they
would not lose their jobs once there is a a transitional government in place another one of the main points was one by bill calling for a census of public workers to get an idea of exactly how many public workers there are in the country and continuing with that momentum and as you had mentioned already there's calls for more protesters calls for more demonstrations on the streets of caracas there's also calls for a national strike of these public workers to put pressure to continue that momentum from the opposition against the government of nicolas motherhood and that's one of the one of the if not the more important. functions of the agenda on mr those docket for today and meanwhile of the sea at one point returns from his tour of the neighborhood so to speak to try to ghana and garner some kind of support do we have any idea any indication of what he actually managed to achieve in his tour of neighboring nations. the i mean for
starters mr gray though did say that this was a historic moment for venezuela before even embarking on the tour of of these several south american countries part of the reason why that was strategic in terms of optics is to show the venezuelan people and to show. and to show international supporters of nicolas modo that there is a strong coalition of international actors that support why you go so that tour of south american countries that included brazil argentina but i was shows that not only is there support from the united states and other western countries there's support from regional leaders here in south america as well now at the moment we haven't heard any sort of response from the government of president nicolas maduro he's remained silent hasn't made any sort of public declarations or statements related to the news that one guy though is back in caracas and is once again calling for demonstrations and we don't know exactly what the next steps are going
to be or the strategy moving forward for the opposition but we knew we do know that there are calls for the momentum of these protests of these demonstrations against the government of nicolas to continue on tuesday and to move into the weekend there are calls for more protests to take place on the ninth on saturday march ninth and i have speaking to us from near the colombia venezuela border man well thank you. well it's six years now since the death of president nicolas maduro sprit to ceasar and mentor chavez but do no claims his left wing political ideology which is known as is alive and well and is weighing up and looks at how much chavez's legacy actually how much of it actually means. chillies mo is date the opposition in venezuela has been saying that since the president whom the ideology was named died of cancer on the fifth of march two thousand and thirteen.
his chosen successor nicolas maduro continues to cling to power 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. talking as if he owned the world i think we could call a psychiatrist to analyze yesterday's statement made by the president of the united states but daughter 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 is 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. say with one voice that we want peace we want to be now while the two men shared similar politics the world has changed for prices of slumped in venezuela as leftwing allies in the region have largely disappeared the door those 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 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. well venezuela marks the sixth anniversary of the death of over charges the opposition is questioning his legacy nicolas maduro supporters are wondering how much longer it will keep the presidents in office and china al-jazeera. pakistan says it has arrested more than forty people still to be linked to armed groups in the region as part of a crackdown following an attack in kashmir which left forty indian paramilitary troops that the february attack was claimed by the pakistan based on group joshing mohammed the brother of the group's leader was among those arrested the bombing has triggered the most serious standoff between india and pakistan years well earlier the pakistani navy said it turned away an indian submarine that it's also had a close to its waters this video released by the navy is said to show the vessel
approaching pakistan's territory it says no action was taken against the submarine in order to help reduce tensions and one can now reports from the city of bad on what pakistan is doing about josh mohammad and other armed groups. they tell it all kish meet will be free this group call themselves but that it was just a day in the budget holy warriors their leader is mullah mohammed haroun he's a firebrand cleric who supports armed groups across crush me 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 and. god willing the fighters of al about 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 anti indian pro united kashmiri ideology is fundamental to all of the groups in the region india
has long maintained that these groups are dirty 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 they're rejecting and jaish e mohammad. after two thousand and fourteen we have game hard on these groups. now it's a stupid policy in pakistan that. really remains with the state and norgrove will be able to use that bill bruford real reload to have the ability to use one for the groups so i think we are taking steps we have taken steps in the past since two thousand and fourteen we have clean steps and 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 saw the suggestion that there is some kind of week where millions between the kind of terror challenge that india is facing and what pakistan is either dealing with internally on india's on internal security issues which are related to the northeast have completely i would say different contours and the 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 where there's. 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. reissue of all groups and who supports them is a phony one in hawker start. to say they are cracking down on these armed groups but it's clear that they are in the spotlight right now. the arrest over a not be enough to satisfy india i'm a lucky enough to reduce tensions between the two nuclear neighbors iran called al-jazeera as a for about. algeria's army chief says he will prioritize security and not allow the country to return to an era of bloodshed that's a stars and the people return to the streets of algeria demanding that the president resign the protesters are calling on eighty two year old abdelaziz bouteflika not to run in next month's elections which he submitted papers for on sunday he was in my hayward. they've no no other leader

during and after the. bloody civil war in the one nine hundred ninety s. wields power here and its military chief says it wants to guarantee algeria security learn real bad attitude of some parties which feel annoyed to secure unstable like it do you want to take a back to the years of pain during which the algerian people suffered all kinds of suffering and paid a heavy price the great people who lived through such difficult times were never given the bounty of security. president do to make a suffered a stroke six years ago and has rarely been seen in public since that he's offered to shorten any new term in power but many here believe that doesn't go far enough. several days of protests against his room have led to more than two hundred people being injured you know i am it nor can say constitute the rights to free expression
is part of the algerian constitution we expect that those rights be respected where there is peaceful demonstrations under the rule of law. the military has warned that some people want to take algeria backwards protesters say they are looking ahead to trying to secure a better future and after twenty years it is time for change and he would i'll just there are. still to come in this half hour i wish police say that they're assisting an investigation into small explosive devices found at a busy station in two airports in london. and staying in london a patient there becomes only the second person in the world to be declared free of the aids virus.
hello there the weather has been pretty wild across parts of europe recently there's more wet and windy weather still to come the satellite picture shows one system working its way away and then another one making its way in from the atlantic this is already giving us some rain and it's whipping pretty quickly eastwards so on wednesdays looking pretty wet for many of us here across britain and ireland through parts of scandinavia and down through parts of spain and portugal and it looks like here is where we see some of the heaviest of the rains they could be a little bit of flooding thanks to this system the whole thing is marching its way eastwards but it's still looking pretty mobile as we head through the day on thursday plenty of showers rattling in on some fairly brisk winds some of the heaviest outbreaks are likely to be in the north of that will be snow we'll also see a fair amount of wintry weather across the alps in the southeast that's where it's calmest in quietest and also quite warm force in athens with the top temperature of twenty degrees for the other side of the mediterranean largely fine and settled for many of us in the east but in the west where we'll see the tail end of that system
affecting europe so more cloud is making its way across parts of morocco and into algeria and we'll see some wet weather as well particularly wednesday night along thursday there's a chance of seeing a few more showers the temperatures will be dropping behind that system too so a maximum of seventy. the of. over one hundred and sixty years ago a musician started a band in an r.t. should treat in cairo. their brass band was so popular it gave birth to an entire musical genre. a century and a halt later the sound still resonates with many egyptians today possible the people's music on al-jazeera.
welcome back here's a reminder of the top stories on al-jazeera a day after his triumphant return to the country venezuela's opposition leader one by due has addressed public employees in the capital caracas saying state bureaucracy is being manipulated by president what the rules go. pakistan says it's arrested more than forty people thought to be linked on groups in the region as part of a crackdown following an attack in kashmir that left forty indian paramilitary troops dead. and the general who leads all jarius army says it will prioritize security and not allow the country to return to an era of bloodshed this is
thousands of people protest again demanding the resignation of president of the lizzie's beautifully. rescue and the aid operations are ongoing in pakistan and afghanistan where flash floods have killed at least fifty people heavy rain over the past ten days of tens of thousands of residents aid workers say that around four thousand families are in need of assistance in afghanistan's southern kandahar province alone schools bridges and mosques of being the story but what the afghan government says is the worst flooding in kandahar in at least seven years while shelob ellis is in kandahar one of the hardest hit provinces where fifteen hundred homes have been damaged or destroyed. now this is the main point in kandahar city where people are coming to get help behind me there with crowds of people out here this morning here making sure that only the people in the u.n. had actually been to the homes and sure that they were actually damaged put them on a list chicks they brought them here this is not
a secure area over here is where the food is being handed out you've got so you've got your got high energy biscuits with children you've got head here that purify the water you end migration agent three handing out blanket. to children to keep them warm because of course it is winter here so there's a lot of work being done to try to help these people who have lost so much the u.n. and you're not the only ones helping you've got the military have done a lot of work in a thing twelve hundred people from flood stricken areas with river beds what have you to try to get them to thank me and love the stories coming out as well about what the military and police are doing. don't make a lot of money but they donated one day of their pay to try to help these flood victims get back on their feet rescuers in alabama are still searching for people missing after a massive tornado tore through the eastern part of the u.s.
state twenty three people are known to have died including seven members of one family four of them children they were found inside or close to their homes local authorities warn the number of dead could rise greek prosecutors have charged several local politicians and fire chiefs over last year's wild fire that killed around one hundred people the charges include mansel for the fire in july devastated the resort of mathy and led to the resignation of several siren fleece officials emergency services were heavily criticized and all the properly prepared in the wake of the disaster. now irish police say they are assisting london police in their investigation into who sent several small explosive devices to three major transport hubs in the city three devices were sent to heathrow london city airport and waterloo station police say that they are treating the incidents as linked and described the packages as capable of igniting a small fire when opened no one was injured to get more now from paul brennan who
joins me in the studio appalled this happened quite recently what more do we know it's a curious one first of all the police are linking all three of these. packages and can call them attacks as such and it's curious because whoever sent them doesn't appear to have been wanting to target people it's it's been three packages of incense of the corporate offices of london city airport london heathrow and waterloo station the railway station they look like very rudimentary primitive devices please call them explosive devices i take issue with that it looks very much more like primitive incendiary devices intended literally just to burst into flames in a very small way and they're actually quite a small size a four size the obvious connection appears to come from the fact that they had irish postage stamps on them and written in the bottom corner sent from handwriting dublin it may be a red herring it may be just something to throw the police off the scent but they
have evidence of a out telling the public to be alert but not necessarily concerned and we'll see where they go i mean they clearly have three packages now to work on in relation to d.n.a. and fingerprints so but they haven't arrested anybody yet it's interesting to see how it develops for the moment paul brennan thank you. now it's being hailed as a potential breakthrough in the fight against hiv a man in london appears to have become only the second known adult worldwide to be in long term when mission of the virus the hiv positive patient was seeking treatment for cancer when doctors the sighted to give him. bone marrow stem cells from a donor with a rare genetic mutation that resists hiv infection three years later he stopped taking drugs to control the infection and tests to show he is still in remission his doctors say the virus is on the tech bubble experts say it doesn't mean a cure has been found but it does mark a critical moment timothy brown was the first case he had
a similar treatment in germany twelve years ago and since lived hiv free he says he would like to meet the london patient i would say take your time in if you if you want to become public do it it's been very useful for science and for giving hope to to each of you probably people. to people would be with a t.v. and so i would encourage you to become public come day take your time and. if you would what's good for you to martino is the acting deputy executive director of u.n. aids he says that while such scientific research should be encouraged governments should throw their support behind preventative treatments already available. this functional cure as we as we are calling it is obviously a significant step forwards we're not clear there's obviously a lot of
a lot of further work that needs to be done in terms of the past ways and what's what it what is behind that cure and i was it is further work before we can definitely 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 develop a cure of a system south transplants are highly complex that significant interventions are 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 make this a plan to build more generally a study of more than half a million children in denmark shows that there is no link between autism and the measles m.m.r. vaccine and yet people continue to resist vaccinations tens of thousands of people die every year from measles of the zs that can be prevented with a simple vaccine that anna holmes reports on why despite the science vaccine
skepticism persists twenty five at least that's the number of studies that conclude there is no link between autism and the m.m.r. vaccine to protect against measles mumps and rubella and we can now take that up to twenty six the latest study this one out of date mark of more than half a million children born over eleven years establishing once again there is no link you might think that well and truly puts them into the empty vaccine movement truth says it's not likely. super charged by the internet and social media and a vaccination views no matter how bogus or ill informed have flourished. and coincided with the growing and his deposition and backlash new research out of the queen mary university of london this month shows people who vote for populist parties across europe
a more likely to mistrust vaccines and the experts who promote them some of the madrone instead to people like andrew wakefield the man behind the now debunked nine hundred ninety eight study that first made the claims of an autism vaccine link he's being thoroughly discredited but is enjoying something of a real nice aunts among right wing groups and conspiracy theorists even politicians without changing the system that has led to the political disenfranchisement of a large portion of the population without changing the system that's led to the economic marginalization of large proportion of the population it's hard to see how we can rebuild this this general trust between the population between accepts me but peel away the n.t. vaccine messaging in many cases you simply lift the hearing and just want what's best for the kids who are worried and unsure and seeing anti-vaccination lissajous
like this one on twitter last month from dallas shine the wife of the white house communications chief advocating natural immunity over vaccinations thing is for natural immunity to kick in you need to get the disease first if that's measles you face a one in five hundred chance of dying from it the chances of an adverse reaction to the him a ma vaccine are less than one in a million the world health organization says vaccines save two to three million lives every year but they're also victims of their own success it will tie a major so. to make people realize how things because that's what. history. while the empty vaccine movement are in minority communities rely on high vaccination rates to keep disease at bay but dismissing those who don't want to vaccinate as
a rational isn't helpful either cleaning up social media is and that has began but restoring faith and established systems and people who champion vaccines now that is the real challenge in canada protesters angry at a growing political scandal have interrupted a speech by prime minister justin trudeau. thank you. yeah it happened hours after the resignation of a second the cabinet minister treasury president jane phil part quit over accusations that trudeau's aides tried to influence a criminal inquiry the case involves a multinational canadian company accused of bribing the libyan government it also led to the resignation of the justice minister jody wilson raybold of last month's now in a surprise move the former nisson chairman it carlos ghosn has been granted bail is
