12:49 pm
taken this is how you see it out live from da also coming up universities are ordered to shut down in algeria to quell the protests against the long ruling president. another ebola treatment center comes under attack in the democratic republic of congo. and progress but at what cost we report from kenya where the construction of a transport corridor has upset indigenous communities. a large parts of the venezuelan capital into their third day without electricity as a political power struggle intensifies on the streets they have been rival demonstrations just a few blocks apart in caracas president nicolas maduro rallied crowds against what he called the u.s. imperialism as supporters of opposition leader one wideout pushed their protests
12:50 pm
into a new part of the city that i suppose is there. it was a protest to win territory in the capital caracas thousands responded to opposition leader why those call to take over victoria avenue in. an area that's been off limits for the opposition because it has been traditionally controlled by supporters of the widow. and fredo to me was among those trying to convince the police to join in the protest i we want them to join us because we are the people not the government we are the majority right now that needs change and it's not represented by nicolas maduro. this rally is the opposition's later. moved to a post modeled as government after a failed attempt to get aid into the country with the help of the united states it was gathered in three different parts of that i guess and then made it to this haven't you and now they're trying to make it till the end of this road where they're supposed to meet up especially if i want to write about their savings as
12:51 pm
you can see here that if i have any nationality god wants i doubt that. a few minutes later people started to push to get the ball of aryan national guard off the street they left the area to avoid a major confrontation i. arrived hours later begging venezuelans not to do is hope. we've said it before but once to wear out brothers and sisters and yes the road has been very long the road has worn us out but we will never tire in the search for freedom. the protest happened after a major power outage left much of venezuela in complete darkness the first blackout was caused by a failure at the good hydroelectric plant in the state of. electricity supply began to return on saturday but then power and communications collapsed once again.
12:52 pm
the government also organized and i'm tired imperialist protests close to the presidential palace he. blamed the opposition and the united states for the power cuts. certainly. they were conducting highly scientific energy attacks with advanced technology what our experts call electromagnetic attacks against the transmission lines to generate interruption to sabotage the process of national reconnection was venezuelans are already struggling with an unprecedented economic crisis and the past few days has allowed the opposition to gain ground in areas they were not able to reach before it was several paragraphs. the government in algeria has ordered universities to close early for the spring break a students
12:53 pm
lead the biggest protests in nearly thirty years they'll shut on sunday two weeks ahead of schedule no official reason has been given young people have played a big part in demonstrations against president denies he's beautifully eighty two year old is seeking a fifth term in office william lawrence is a professor at george washington university he believes the algerian government's move is counterproductive. it's a poor decision and it will likely backfire there is about one point seven million university students and a little over six hundred thousand of those live in university housing to the idea was if you close the housing and sent them home maybe their parents prevent them from joining protests but if you know anything about students when there is a mass mobilization of students going on in the campuses literally letting out into the streets students cutting classes and joining protests the likelihood that the parents will be able to prevent the students from joining these the ever growing
12:54 pm
protests is very unlikely so in fact one point seven university students were just told you're on vacation we've had more than two million protesters according to crisis group in this streets and that is likely to grow basically what we have in algeria for some years now is a direct action by by protesters towards the state which leads to most political outcomes and so you have thousands of protests every year in algeria at the micro level and then direct response from the state and so this is just that on a much larger scale and it's being driven by social media it's very youth driven but one of the interesting thing about these protests is that we have slogans from the sixty's from the eighty's from the two thousands two thousand tens it's a real mortgage borg of the greatest hits of algerian protest over the last sixty years which are bringing together the quasi totality of the algerian population against a fifth mandate for the president and for systemic change the problem is that the
12:55 pm
crowd is not articulating what its vision is for systemic change a u.s. backed kurdish fighters are preparing for a final push against isis last enclave in syria fighting in both loos was poised to allow more civilians to leave on saturday and i still flag could still be seen in the town aid groups say tens of thousands have escaped the area since the start of the offensive by kurdish fighters last month. the head of the un's refugee agency has been experiencing firsthand what life is like for syrians who fled the fighting gandhi visited refugees in lebanon and says the u.n. won't pressure them into returning home they're worried they're they're fearful of security they are thinking about their destroyed houses of their lack of jobs in all these are very important human factors that need to be addressed but i think that if we continue to work on the syrian side maybe more people will make this
12:56 pm
decision in more confidence it is very important you know very well our position that any return be not only safe and dignified but also voluntary that people have to make that decision by themselves and should not be pressured or pushed and i think that continues to be our position but of course for those who return they will be they will be supported by us and we're certainly not as has been said in the past but he's not being said any more we're not blocking any return we would be it would not be our job to do that. a satellite images released in the united states by the news outlet n.p.r. suggest north korea could be preparing for a new missile launch pictures suggest increased activity at the site near pyongyang a second round of talks between leader kim jong un and us president donald trump ended without an agreement last month kim had stopped missile launches as relations between the two countries improved. well time will tell but i have
12:57 pm
a feeling that our relationship with north korea kim jong un and myself chairman kim i think it's a very good one i think it remains good i would be. surprised in a negative way if we did anything that was. not per our understanding but we'll see what happens look when i came in. under the obama administration north korea was a disaster i inherited a mess with north korea right down you have no testing you have no nothing let's see what happens but i would be very disappointed if i saw a test that. false the concept is a senior research fellow at leeds university he says north korea will be well away its reconstruction is on the surveillance. there is no definite evidence but the north koreans it is depressing that the north koreans presumably to show that they are not happy about the way the homeowner summit and agreements are back to the old
12:58 pm
game of cason mousy keeping us guessing so they know perfectly well now that satellites overhead all the time and take for granted structurally everything and so they obviously they want us to see some stuff that makes us worry that they're going to do things this doesn't necessarily mean that al-qaeda do those things doesn't do them so you know they think the north koreans calibrate what they say and do very carefully under like the current us president when is tempted to say so i'm not to argue but that was a little bit on the easy of for the third time in a month an ebola treatment center has been attacked in the eastern democratic republic of congo the center in bhutan bo was targeted hours before a visit by the head of the world health organization the latest outbreak of the virus has killed five hundred seventy eight people since august barbara angle part reports. soldiers drag a suspected attacker through the forest close to the temporary bella center in the
