characters of the governing elites in jail for example people asking for the cancellation of the elections so this is us all the sign dad there is a political matter ration among the ranks of the court this throws on the rank of the of the government or the ruling elite they have still be inside iran is not answering the people's demands unless you're offering some cosmetic reforms but the last importance. and it's still stagnant so we don't know actually even if the police who has always been have been told the chant we buried in strangers have shown that they. have the willingness to repress my auntie to protest we're still don't know how the military command is going to handle the transition all right well thank you very much. for joining us there from algiers. well now the power is back on in parts the venezuelan capital crack has bought
12:08 am
a nationwide blackouts continue else west some places have been without electricity for around twenty four hours now this is the longest of the country's twenty years socialist leadership with the metro closed on public transport being under intense pressure the government close school suspended working hours and told business is to stay shut as it tries to address the problem communications minister has blamed right wing extremists who he says sabotage the country's biggest hydroelectric dam on the orders of u.s. senator marco rubio but critics say corruption and mismanagement has ruined the power grid but it was already have a bigger bus and would you worry first for your own security because when the lights go out the criminals take advantage of the public streets to function there are people in the streets your thirty's are present so you go around with caution trying to protect yourself and get home. we don't know any news about anything supermarket when they told us we had to leave the country has practically become a disaster opposition leader one why don't you rejected the government's claims
12:09 am
that everything is normal. you know. what's happening is not normal as i was arriving here i heard some of the regime spokespeople saying that the streets were totally normal that everything was perfect maybe it's perfect in their homes because they have generators but no evidently today is not a normal day in venezuela and of venezuela has already been beaten down at a venezuela or daily chores or missed going to the supermarket getting their medicines or brisson our families to the twenty hours or so that. we managed to get . in the venezuelan capital caracas. 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 turned this has generated all around the city there is no metro there's no trains
12:10 am
there's no water for example will be going around several hospitals in 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 venezuela is facing 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. are expected to happen this saturday. well manny it happened is live for us now in the city of on the
12:11 am
venezuela colombia border and manny what are you hearing about the power outage it appears to be a very inconsistent situation with some part of the country still suffering apparently that these reports and it's been restored and. that's exactly right mary and we're still having a hard time finding out exactly what even was the root cause of the power outage we're hearing from president nicolas maduro on one hand saying that this was part of an electricity war directed by the united states we're hearing from quote a poor lech which is the state run power company in venezuela saying that this is a sabotage that this was part of an attack against the goodie dam which is a hydroelectric plant that's responsible for bringing power to the entire country of venezuela and we know that power outages in the country are relatively common but there's never really been anything quite like this this seems very different almost seems unprecedented just the scale of this power outage across the country
12:12 am
we've heard from opposition leader one of those saying that as many as twenty two states in vegas will were affected by this power outage but we can't confirm exactly what the root cause was and we still are having a hard time as we heard from our correspondent from al jazeera correspondents recent in got acas saying that power has been restored in parts of get out because we still don't know how many people are without power in the rest of the country. and what do we know about the steps and measures nigeria's government is taking to address this outage. even though the government has said that they are working on a fix that they are working to to reestablish electricity in the country again without knowing exactly what the root cause was we're hearing back and forth even within the even within the government of the us to what exactly was behind behind the power outage itself we don't know when that power will be restored for everybody else and this everything that happens and could act as
12:13 am
a sort of reflected on the border where we are here in colombia right on the border with venezuela there's a lot of tension even though things are calm we say things are calm but there is a heavy military presence both on the colombian side of the border and on the venezuela side of the border we heard that that update from theresa bowen caca saying that there's more demonstrations planned for the weekend that tension is is certainly felt here on the border where thousands of people every day continue to flood into colombia many many young children coming into colombia every day looking for a chance to receive a formal education we are seeing as many as five thousand people a day arriving at a food bank operated by the world food program these are people that are leaving that as we're looking for an opportunity just to have a meal many of them return to venezuela in the evening crossing these illicit crossings because the official border remains closed diplomatic ties between venezuela and columbia remain closed but at the moment we're still trying to find
12:14 am
out more information about what exactly was the cause of that power outage that affected nearly the entire country of inis well or near him right well thank you very much money into bringing us the latest from there on the venezuela colombia border thank you mani only can now speak to juan carlos delgado who is the latin america policy analyst at the cato institute think tank in washington so as we were hearing from our correspondents there. inside venezuela and on the board this power outage is having a power lies ing impact on the country not fresh challenges that a time when that was already an economic and humanitarian crisis how long do you anticipate this could go on full. we don't know i mean this is that the king bomb for sure but we haven't seen yet that it's likely that will spark. a massive outwards of the population pro going into the streets and trying to topple an equal
12:15 am
as modal obviously most been as one and one that outcome but we haven't seen yet that situation where the population forces the hand of the military who is the ultimate arbiter in this standoff between white dog and the regime will be called as modal. it appears that the situation has hit something of a stalemate with. pursuing international support which he certainly does have upon returning to venezuela is still very much in the same position because of course the army which is the most powerful institution in the country continues to back nicolas maduro. yeah the army is the is the one that is going to decide this is a stalemate. we know for a fact that there is a lot of these up these factions among the troops last week for example when. humanitarian aid was trying to be introduced into the country through the colombian
12:16 am
border we saw we saw hundreds of troops from the national guard defecting. colombia the problem there is the generals the generals are deeply involved in corruption are deeply involved in drug trafficking so easy in their interest to do state role you'll remain loyal to equalise modo they know that the alternative to not being in power is brawly being prosecutor for crimes against humanity corruption or even being extradited to the united states on drug trafficking charges there remain loyal and also we cannot underestimate the power of the cuban. intelligence services their role their plea remain in keeping evil trading the venezuelan army and keeping tabs on whatever. there might be of trying to organize. our pricing it's interesting that you mention this sort of level of foreign
12:17 am
interference in the country's affairs right now the u.s. has also played a leading role in pressuring the the do or government the troponin astray she is openly called him to be replaced and is also in for sanctions an attempt to choke off the government's economic resources. yeah if for example east blackout we have seen blackouts in minutes way love in the last ten years with more and more recurrence but i wouldn't rule out that these particular bracknell down the extent of it has to do something with us sanctions let's remember that the us sanctions not only have to do with the oil exports they have been as well exports of crude towards the united states but also u.s. exports of the winds to venezuela been as well it needs to deal with in order to refine their oil they use these are the fuel in order to power power plants and keep electricity going case that the it were an extra power fails so i wouldn't
12:18 am
rule out that this is a consequence of the sanctions and this is part of the bat that the united states and the international community is doing with venezuela we know for a fact that sanctions tend to hurt the ordinary people the people in the streets we saw their report people even dying in hospitals on the ultimate bed of the united states the international community and why dog that these is going to force the hand of the army and ammo to an incredible bed and yet the payoff well thank you for sharing your thoughts with us appreciate it juan carlos from the kitchen it's a cheap think tank there in washington. you know at the news hour live from london more still ahead why turkey and russia will join a patrol syria's lost rebel stronghold it live. turkish women meanwhile defy a ban to march on international women's day while people turn out in force in spain . and in sport why one of the world's most successful white nations i will miss

12:23 am
rebels all civilians spilling over the border as. 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 affiliated with h.t.s. tired. which is a al-qaeda organization or at least had been linked with it to the russians had accused the turks of not fulfilling their side of the bargain which is to contain these jihadi it's in fact it 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

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. everything 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
12:35 am
