demonstrators demanding president. abandon his bid for a fifth term in office in next month's election. just a day earlier eighty two year old with a fleet who suffered a stroke five years ago and is. in switzerland for what are described as routine medical tests urged algerians not to demonstrate and warned about the risk of chaos if they did. not protesters didn't listen and local media reports say that nine politicians from who could leave his ruling f l n party resigned to join the revolt the analysts aren't surprised they are just following the logic of the people in the states and the convention that it's time and which if you do stuff out so i'm not on a need that didn't but see that or see or saw that organizations like a dead the what if it deadens organisation the outside the side then we've had the debate but in the city it's. train and metro operators halted services to try and
stem the tide of protesters a strategy that clearly didn't work across on syria demonstrations have been staged daily for the past two weeks since beautifully could confirm he would stand for another term in office on april the eighteenth the second one station i don't go to stuck it out just going on and on it's no book seoul and the out some of them you know dead allies is that this is a mountain and point you know dad i'm going to go back and it's time now just to use deadly and just to side with the people and states since the protests began opposition groups have been attempting to come up with a viable plan on how to remove with a flicker from office in an open letter on monday the president said if he's reelected he will call for a referendum on a new constitution and another election at some point. algeria's armed forces are under mounting pressure to find a solution but so far the response has been cryptic while alluding to the
demonstrations algeria's army chief evoke the civil war of the one nine hundred ninety s. urging protesters to be aware of history but the rallies continue with no signs of abating anytime soon mohammed and dizzy. french algerians have been showing solidarity with that country men holding protests against beautifully in paris they say they're not just opposed to the president but the entire algerian elite the french government says it's monitoring events in its former colony the foreign minister. has said it's for algerians to decide on their country's future. the power is back on in parts of the venezuelan capital caracas but the nationwide blackout continues elsewhere with some places without electricity for around twenty two hours the government has closed schools ordered working hours to be suspended and told businesses to stay shut as it tries to fix the problem it blame what it
describes as extremist sectors he says have sabotaged the country's biggest hydroelectric dam but the opposition are saying that it's corruption and mismanagement that have ruined the power grid. imagine being without electricity what that means for the hospitals what that means for the ben is really people the rhodium of food which is already hard to come by this is an inefficient regime which is a product of corruption and for that reason we thought ourselves of the situation where power cuts have become normal in venezuela but house affected twenty two of the countries twenty three states with the metro closed and traffic lights out says been chaos on public transport with people struggling to get on buses many to give up and walk to and from work all spittle generators of even failed shops and restaurants the shots and the internet and even state t.v. have fallen silent president will blame the united states tweeting the electric war announced and directed by american imperialism against our people will be defeated
his communications minister said it was right wing extremists taking orders from u.s. senator marco rubio well trey's a bow sent us this update from caracas just a bit earlier. a massive power cut is affecting at least fifteen states in venezuela apparently the electricity one top around five o'clock on the first day and it still has not reached the turn this has generated chaos all around the city there is no metro there's no trains and there's no water for example would be going around several hospitals in that because one of them is this one where the emergency room is running with one power plant but we're told that the rest of the hospital is completely in the dark in the past in this hospital and because of a power cut at least four people lost their lives because of this problem with electricity in the country the government is saying that the power grid was generated by an attack an attack by the extreme right by the opposition by the
united states and that's why they have suspended schools among other things until they're able to restart electricity in the country the opposition says however that this is an example of the problems that venice were. today shortages of food of medicine and now electricity lack of investment corruption among other problems and that's why the opposition is calling for more protests in venezuela that are expected to happen this saturday on monday it up on a is live for us now in the city of could tell in the venezuela colombia border and this has been a power lies and outage for the country possibly the worst it's ever experienced how are people coping with hearing about that. that's right mary and this is truly unprecedented simply in the scale of the local reports that we were hearing at five pm local time on thursday is that the power went out during rush hour creating chaos on the streets communication between people living in colombia who have relatives on the venezuelan side of the border
has been has been very difficult so this is something that even though power outages are common as you mentioned already in venezuela this is something different this felt very different and on one hand you have president nicolas maduro saying that this is part of a quote electricity war directed by the united states you have lect which is the state owned energy company saying that this was part of sabotage an attack against the ghoti dam which is in a hydroelectric plant that's responsible prefer for providing electricity for almost the entire part of the country the local reports are saying that this wasn't a total blackout in caracas this was a near total blackout in the entire country so we have been trying to work to get more information to find out the exact cause the official cause of this blackout but we still don't know even though there has been power restored to some parts of because in some parts of the country we still don't know how many people in the country are still without power almost more than twenty two hours since the power went out in the country yes and the opposition here is call for more protests but
with the scale of this power outage that will presumably restrict people's movements. that's a very possible theory here on the border we we could report that things are very calm we say things are calm but there is a very heavy militarized presence both on the colombian side of the border and on venezuela presumably in anticipation for these nationwide protests that were called by president nicolas maduro and also by opposition leader of one calling for thousands of people to take to the streets on one end of the anti-imperialist march as president mubarak called and on the other a march against the mother government by the opposition things are very tense it's a very troubling and alarming development and with that has already been an increase in tensions in venezuela and an increase in tensions on the border since the border itself has been closed since diplomatic ties between venezuela and columbia were were cut so we're still seeing thousands of people flooding into
colombia every single day children coming into the country just trying to get access to education people at least five thousand people every day just coming into colombia in search of food and then traveling back across through illicit routes over the border back into venice well and repeating that cycle every day it truly is a humanitarian crisis on the border here of venezuela and colombia mariyam well thank you very much from the venezuela colombia border money and thank you money. well now tacky and russia will start joint patrols of syria's northwestern adlib province where they've created a deescalation zone and it is the last major rebel stronghold in the ceasefires of the syrian government offensive truth as the truce has come under strain as al qaeda linked fighters started seizing towns and villages from rival anti-government groups. in the bin bush in the fuselage of oh yes and today the patrols of the
russian troops just outside it live border and inside it live weaponized areas the patrols of the turkish army forces are starting to there were some restrictions over using the airspace over it live in africa which also lifted today in this respect our cooperation with russia has improved we see this as a significant step for the continuation of the cease fire and ensuring stability for those joshua landis is the director of the center for middle east studies at the university of oklahoma he says turkey and europe and desperately trying to keep the agreement together because they don't want rebels or civilians to spill over there but what is in the province is a big promise and it's where most of the hardened rebels have been in a sense collected and pushed out of the rest of syria as the government has conquered it and so it's a giant holding ground there are you know by cia estimates over thirty thousand hardened rebels many of them fairly ated with h.p.'s tired it is sham which is a al-qaeda organization or at least had been linked with it the russians had
accused the turks of not fulfilling their side of the bargain which is to contain these jihads in fact that conquered the entire province largely and so this is an effort by turkey to have these joint patrols and to mollify russia and to consolidate this agreement because turkey is terrified that if syria and russia attack you'll get the same thing you're seeing in the east bows which is tens of thousands of family members refugees fighters being pushed out into turkey and perhaps into europe so europe turkey are desperately trying to keep this agreement together they do not want an army. meanwhile in eastern syria the u.n. says more than sixty thousand people are now crammed into a camp after evacuating from my sil's last shrinking pockets of territory u.s. backed syrian democratic forces say defeating the village of imminent the s.d.f.

a lot of rain here across parts of germany as well as poland windy conditions up towards scandinavia and into the baltic sea and as we go from saturday to sunday that rain starts a push over here towards the east we do get a bit of a break but we do see some more rain coming into play as we go towards sunday and that's also going extend up towards parts of denmark as well to the south though things are looking quite nice athens at twenty two rome at fifteen but we do think by the time we go towards next week things are going to be cooling off quite nicely across much of that area here across the northern part of africa though fine dry for most locations we're still watching that area of low pressure in algeria and that is causing some windy conditions and dusty conditions as well a few clouds up here towards the north but on the coastal areas things along quite nice we are going to be seeing rabbet at about twenty one degrees few tunas at twenty things over here towards cairo looking quite nice at twenty five but as you go down here towards khartoum it is going to be a sunny day for you with a temperature of about thirty four degrees and us one at thirty one.

back just a quick look at stories making headlines now tens of thousands of algerians have again been protesting in the capital and around the country calling for president abdelaziz bouteflika to step down several politicians from the ruling party are reported to have quit and join them. the power is back on in parts of venezuelan capital caracas but nationwide the blackout is continuing with some places without electricity for more than twenty two hours now and turkey in russia will begin joint patrols of syria's northwestern italy province where they've created a deescalation zone. when yemen's warring sides agree to stop fighting and withdraw their troops from a crucial port city that was hoped food and medicine would soon flow in but with sporadic fighting still going on there's growing despair for nineteen million yemenis suffering from malnutrition and illness aid agencies say time is especially short for the children and a warning that you might find some of the images and a solid bunch of aids reports distressing.

un's children agency says one hundred thirty five thousand children remain in the besieged city of today the word they face the highest level of malnutrition and cholera in yemen. unicef says their living conditions are so dire no one should ever suffer them. the fight between the. coalition and who has destroyed yemen's health care system the siege and bombardment of the port city over their heads wrecked hospitals ambulances even medical stores doctors say their missing ninety percent of medical supplies and equipment. specifically targeted the health sector and intentionally aimed at destroying its facilities more than fifty percent of all the medical facilities have been totally or partially destroyed including the main hospitals and internal clinics half of the emblems fleet has been destroyed to the province is facing
a catastrophic humanitarian situation it is beyond words of the board over the past four years because malnourishment among more than three hundred thousand children below the age of five. it may be too late for thousands of starving children. but has a few days of hope left. it's only if those in power care and help arrives in time some of the job there. doctors in madagascar are blaming the shortage of vaccines for the struggle to contain the west measles outbreak in decades close to one thousand people have died of the disease in the last five months most of them children. want to hand reports this family is in mourning for four year old and his cousins martina and mario who were both age three they all died within days of each other in january young victims of the measles epidemic in madagascar are
gone from my child had been vaccinated he had received the first injection but he died because we didn't have enough money to get him the second post a jab. at least nine hundred twenty two islanders mostly children have succumbed to the disease since october the world health organization says only eight percent of the twenty six million malagasy people are vaccinated against measles and the government says it's three million dollars short of the seven million it needs to buy in a fax nations for every one children from poor families who catch measles are often given cheap traditional treatments seven year old doreen was only brought to this health clinic when her condition worsened. we tried to heal her with traditional medicine using natural herb but it didn't help at all. madagascar is hoping to rule out an emergency to dose vaccination program for children the first injection will be free but the booster won't. we shouldn't stop there the main challenge is how
to plan for what comes after for the last twenty five years madagascar hasn't been successful in immunizing its children against measles we can only hope that after this campaign it will have all it needs to vaccinate as routinely as possible order . so when. doctors say ninety five percent of the population needs to be barks needed to stop measles spreading but without extra money it's likely more malagasy families we've forced to live with the devastating consequences vinton moment an al-jazeera. mexican authorities say at least twenty five central american migrants have died after the truck they were traveling in overturned the crash happened in the southern mexican state of chiapas a widely used entry point for migrants arriving from guatemala state authorities say at least twenty nine others were injured in the accident and the system investigating but local media are citing a technical fault in the overloaded vehicle as the cause of the tragedy white house

a sense over canada and greenland that's because flights have had to stay within eyeshot of the land based radar towers there but starting this month new eyes will be watching and watching from space to us companies carry on and radio have teamed up to operate a satellite flight surveillance system that leaves no area of the planet uncovered the last of the web of sixty six satellites were delivered to orbit in january the only system that has truly global coverage meaning that there is no spot on the earth poles south pole north pole anywhere that there isn't. the mh the. seventy disappearance led to new international standards for aircraft position reporting over open ocean ariane in new radium say their technology exceeds those standards feeding location data to air traffic controllers at least every eight
