we asked if this was the only food she had. has also become a major issue. has been without running water for a month they have to wait for hours in their containers. the government is not providing basic public service. the government says. and is struggling to restore electricity. but the power continues to go down. with an enormous economic crisis that is only making. the democratic forces and poor.
people remain in the other being used as human shields. there had been a lull in fighting over the past several days to allow the valiant and even fighters. still to surrender now a spokesman for the syrian democratic forces that's the kurdish forces on the ground said the decision to we knew the offensive and by whose was taken after new civilians came out of that area since satcher day now is the hope that this could be the last battle after all i still is in control now of a sliver of land compared to what it had back in two thousand and seventeen however this has been a very complicated battle i think both the kurds and the coalition were
taken aback by the number of people coming out of back who's the one expected that even they didn't expect either to see these hundreds if not thousands of fighters surrendering to the kurds now there is a worry that that could happen again some of the people who came out said that there were many more civilians that were killed in back to some hinted at the network of tunnels on the ground where the civilians would be seeking shelter as the moment and some military experts will tell you that i still had been using this tactic in this says that to control the advance of the as the as forces allowed people to leave that area and in that time it gives it i still fighters have the time to sort of regroup and reorganize and think about the next step certainly this is going to be a very fierce battle because there is a wish to really ended as sooner rather than later but you do have to remember that
those fighters who chose to remain in baquba are the die hard fighters are the ones who will fight until the bitter end so certainly could this force is i expecting certainly fierce battles in the days ahead. time for a break here al-jazeera when we come back we'll speak to one of the female protest is who's going to release from prison and saddam. brags it could impact the world about more than status. however i think in china you have a day off from the right maybe two days off the clouds disappearing east wasn't really concentrating on bringing rain to japan so this tailend stuff is probably just that for taiwan and bitzer ground long it might rain a little bit on monday but i think mostly you're into fine with another twenty two
in hong kong eighteen shanghai so you certainly will not be in shanghai and but the same orion along the yangtze valley that to chengdu seventeen here so pretty couple days i what you should be expect in march to be honest that rain is not really in season south of that and we still got what is still fine looking weather the most to southeast asia including the philippines very few showers increasing amounts of cloud certainly in borneo you like to get rather more hit by big showers it's still chancellor way sea and to the east i've seen some pretty big showers recently in southern sumatra and in singapore i think the chance of you getting one increases or the next couple days and she is a sit in the wet through some entre to the western side of java including jakarta once more so we are no stranger here to heavy rain or unusual showers been reported recently near chennai but the general picture once this cloud is taken the last it's rain and snow through afghanistan and pakistan is a quiet couple of days for

are really the products of in the exploiters of the social and political unrest incompetence and the suffering of societies that have collapsed largely isis came to exist because syria has imploded and exploded simultaneously and there is the problem of the insurgency in iraq because the united states invaded and bad as saddam was destroyed whatever stability there was since the u.s. policy is largely incoherent now you have someone at the head of the government who is fundamentally incoherent in almost everything that he says or thinks that he believes john bolton is quite coherent himself although his policies are far different than those. other counterterrorism officials and experts would recommend but at least he is good here and the problem is that you can't have go in two directions simultaneously and if you don't know what direction you're going to go
in you will go around in circles and that's fundamentally u.s. policy we're staying we're leaving we are supporting your deferring to russia we oppose russia we want to go after iran but everything we're doing is empowering or strengthening iran's hold in influencing syria etc etc so i don't have the answer because no one does american policy is at present incoherent the palestinian president has chosen a long time advise and critic of hamas as his new prime minister how much time as a top official in mahmoud abbas's fatah movement to form a peace negotiator his appointment could deepen a rift with rivals hamas in a place romney hamdullah would have seen a unity government but resigned in january more from need to bring in the amount. how to stay here has been a long aide for president in economic issues as well as being part of their central committee for the past two terms upon his assignment president has told you that

the iraqi people in my best gratitude for their rejection of the unfair and illegal sanctions against the iranian people we are looking to develop these relations during the visit of president rouhani to iraq. there are reports the u.s. president just said to ask congress for eight point six billion dollars to help pay for his border war with mexico donald trump is expected to make the request when he delivers his twenty twenty budget roadmap on monday it's three billion more than he previously asked congress for last year funding battle over the war led to the longest government shutdown in u.s. history. our sudanese quarter sentence the daughter of the opposition leader to a week in prison she's one of many female protesters calling for the resignation of the president omar al bashir but some women who join the protests have now been released on the orders of the president had all been met with one of them. just days ago fison a good a member of an opposition party in sudan was in hunger strike in a women's prison in the country's second largest city on the man she's been held in
detention for six weeks accused of taking part in anti-government protests and. i was driving from our party's h.q. when cars came up behind me and in front of me and told me to get out of my car and to get into this i was taken to detention and then questioned and put in jail no charges were brought against me and the other women in jail with me. why is that and at least thirty nine other woman arrested because of the protests have now been released from prison following orders time by president obama and the sheer demonstrations in sudan began in december over the rising costs of basic goods including bread and fuel the quickly turned into demands for the president and his own security forces used tear gas and live bullets on the protesters the government says fifty two people have been killed rights groups say the figure is higher last month the president declared a year long state of emergency but the protests continue this year is refusing to
step down and has called for dialogue. but the dough is cool and. god willing we will get over all the problems and overcome the obstacles because we have decided to have a technocratic government without any regard to political affiliation or tribe we picked the military men to be governors because the whole country loves them. some political analysts say security forces appear to target women protesters more than men i want to. it was surprising to see men arresting women they were touching their women inappropriately and beating them that's why there are female security agents and police the fact that they let men and not women deal with female protesters is a clear sign of a violation. the state of emergency hasn't stopped the demonstrations and despite the threat of arrest many protesters the they'll settle for nothing less than bashir is resignation morgan on how to. tibetan activists around the world sixtieth anniversary of an uprising against chinese rule took place in taiwan

dates to give the government more time to announce spending projects something election commission denies adverts like these announcing new spending projects and praising the government's accomplishments are regular feature in most newspapers even more so now with the prime minister announcing one hundred fifty seven new projects this past month alone with the election dates now declared those spending announcements have to stop to abide by election law but critics say the benefit to the government has already happened. prime minister there and they're both the party came to power five years ago on promises of economic prosperity for all. and a pre-lunch and rally last week multi-talented his economic programs to nonunion workers many of whom work in the informal economy. in the name of the poor ruled the country fifty five but even they did not think of these unorganized workers of india but in the fifty five months only the son like me has we heard their voices
and saw dead bodies. but farmers unions and other groups have been protesting for better government assistance for years with some large rallies held in the past few months unemployment the government has not been able to tackle that in fact unemployment is at its worst what a decade or more in this country this political commentator says some of those economic promises have fallen through. nothing spectacular nothing to show for all the promises he has made the economy has been badly hit by his. scheme. so i think there are huge problems and these are all the issues that he would rather not face and we. had to make of nationalism precisely because these promises are not working really really would be looked good. aside from the economy issues of armed groups in kashmir and the recent conflict with pakistan have also push security issues to the forefront. opinion polls are split on whether this
government will return for another five year term meanwhile indians are gearing up for what will be a record breaking election campaign as al-jazeera. north koreans are voted to elect the country's parliament was the second such elections as kim jong un took power eight years ago kim cast his vote in the polling center of pyongyang's kim chag university of technology but analysts say the supreme people's assembly is in consequential as power is centered around kim and his close advisors . in the u.k. are making last minute contingency plans for brags that the british art market is the third biggest in the world and relies on seamless shipping within the european union galleries want to make sure that continues for their customers the barker reports from london. this is one of the biggest and teach warehouses in europe where it's prepared for shipping around the world. the company service is top dealers private collections and museums so what's the most expensive item
that's passed through. looking at in excess of one hundred million pounds so these are no more objects by any means or some might be small but very beautiful the international art world depends on frictionless shipping with little bureaucracy and few tariffs but as breaks it looms the industry is weighing up the challenges i feel there is just this lack of character we don't know what's going to happen if we if we get a deal next week then everything stays the same for twenty months maybe three years and then during that period they'll negotiate further but it does lead to further uncertainty and that makes long term planning quite difficult. for the moment are to ship seamlessly between the u.k. and the e.u. we're very little red tape and with no jus t. in place for all of that could change when the u.k. leaves the e.u. if there are no new arrangements in place they could well be new juvies imposed the

from the global internet new laws are going through parliament to control and even stop information online opponents say it's even more censorship so he's bloody put in building his own version of china's great firewall this is the inside story. hello and welcome to the program. television's long been russia's main source for news under the watchful eye of president putin but the internet is fast eroding
state television's influence and russia's main opposition figure alexei and avani is among those running you tube channels to provide an alternative voice the kremlin's not toppy and through a combination of legislation and surveillance infrastructure it wants to ensure it has control of all media new bills going through parliament aimed at creating a single command post from which the government can decide what information is allowed online putin says it's a defensive response to trump administration's new cyber strategy but critics say it's meant to stave off any domestic political unrest step vast and sets up a discussion from moscow. this is just the latest effort by the government to control the internet in previous years many restrictions have been imposed already hundred fifty four thousand sites have already been blocked and this bill is more far reaching than previous ones but to really control the internet experts say the
government needs a lot of money and a lot of manpower so to create something like in china great firewall many see that as an realistic plan here in russia because. i don't want to leave like in china with her chain the use of fire wall i want the internet to be free and. i want to think and to. to use my mind everywhere and i don't want. some. somewhere and i think it would be. my worst. because. in our country our politicians don't. don't have any limits like in china and service why i think it would be your worst
. there's been a growing crackdown on internet freedom in russia in recent years on thursday the lower house approved bills banning what's described as disrespect of the state and the spreading of what the government calls fake news they still have to pass the upper house before putting can sign them into law why it's groups say dozens of people have been arrested for sharing or even liking means on the internet which are considered extremist by the kremlin last year the government tried to outlaw communications telegram a move that's caused other services to crash because it interfered with the amazon and google servers that telegram relied on and in the north caucasus mobile internet service is what caught for almost two weeks in an attempt to stop and to government protests let's bring in our panel in moscow. we have victor all of it he's the lead analyst at the center for actual politics in london
sam greene director of the russia institute at king's college london and author of the book moscow in movement and opposition input in russia also in moscow alexander sort of year member of the advocacy group open russia german thank you very much for joining inside story victor i would like to ask you is this a bill meant to look implement censorship what is a disguise in the form of protecting national sovereignty in russia. no it is the bill. is intended to protect russia and russian citizens in the internet space in an age when that the internet has become a medium for adversarial information wolf where you know for you remember the one nine hundred ninety s. when the internet was starting around the world. it was not yet especially in the
beginning of the ninety's it was not yet. widely used enough for information warfare but starting from two thousand and later on we have seen the internet being used by different actors on the international stage to. advance their national interests quickly at the expense of other international activists and other countries we have. cyber attacks being launched by different actors against each other and we have seen in cyber threats being openly. openly stated by international officials if you remember in just symbol of two thousand and sixteen after the american election that didn't go the way of the obama white house hoped it would then vice president joe biden openly threatened cyber cyber attacks against russia so it is quite logical that russia would.
take steps to protect itself from possible cyber those from other possible steps that its adversary has made. in the in the internet and social media and we will talk more in details above those steps. is this an attempt to preserve digital sovereignty for little but some perspective or is this clearly a flagrant move to clamp down on dissent. as you were reported introductions suggested raise a lot of things going on at the same time and there's a history and a background to this there's been really legislation ramping up restrictions on the internet really since two thousand and twelve two thousand and thirteen and and all that it seems to point in one direction so unfortunately from maybe from the from this perspective right legislation that has to do with sovereignty and security is going to be interpreted certainly by the people that we're seeing on the streets in
moscow and other russian cities today in in that context as part of a restrictive drive are there legitimate sovereignty and security concerns i'm sure there are for russia as for any other country on earth the bought what the opposition will wonder is where the line will be drawn between what the kremlin will perceive as foreign interference and what is the. legitimate domestic opposition and of course the opposition believes and history has shown so far right that the kremlin sees almost all opposition as part of some nefarious generally western plot to overthrow. alexander the government. all of this was basically saying seized of the internet as being used by other dublin as a defense that. to further destabilize other countries by using cyber attack and therefore the government think this is the why time to change things on the ground
. and well actually. of course i do not agree with the statement that this is the attempt of the government to defend our country or something because this has nothing in connection with the defense of our or country . it is just another classico tool of a crackdown in order to try to control the information resources in. in our country because every independent agenda has come into the internet just because you have no power to needed to spread your ideas in television or something like that or radio or newspapers everything is being controlled by the state except internet and of course they are trying to do this saying that this is very important for the russian security though they have in their reality two main
goals the first goal have already mentioned is an attempt is an attempt to control the information but the second go as the classical corrupt deeply corrupted state they just see this is another opportunity to well to steal more money from the budget because first of all it was said that this law would not demand any rubble from the state budget then they said ok we'll need two billion rubles and then they multiplied this figure into ten and they they've been told telling that we need twenty billion rubles now they are talking about one hundred fifty billion rubles we do not know if this figure will ever stop and this is the classical scenario for any any attempt to block internet because we've already seen that with telegram it didn't work. victor i mean in practical terms how is it possible to stall of this whole new approach basically by seeing the flow of
information through centralized controlled by the government from a technical perspective is it possible how much time is it going to take and at what cost. well first of all i want to dispute there's a claim by alexander that all russian media is state controlled or under the control of the government there are a number of newspapers magazines and russian beast internet sites and resources that are not only not controlled by the state or by the government but are quiet openly opposed to government initiatives or or the government positions in the course political force itself and we can only talk about. those publications of what a well known. going back to your question of course russia is very much interested in protecting itself in case for example the united states or others decided to
switch off the internet yes especially since two thousand and fourteen there have been calls in some western quarters especially in washington and in the capitals of its closest allies in the west to possibly so to say quote unquote russia for behavior that the united states does not believe is in its national interest and to switch it off the internet we have heard similar demands to switch russia out of the swift banking system and russia especially that since two thousand and fourteen to set up its own credit card system in peace the system is blocking russia is blocked out of the system like you're on was before and so russia is preparing exactly for that for the worst type scenario where the united states and possibly some of its other western partners will try to block a door switch russia off the international internet grid also russia has
a tempting to protect itself from such threats as we have seen recently even in the seventy's ok i mean if you're into the cyber attack against venezuela which has and some other means. there is a reason why i have been. there have been. difficult and there blackout because of a cyber attack if you don't mind i'll definitely go back to come back to you but you know what's interesting here this is going to be my question to. victor you seem to be talking about a tax. but the same time you did good morning the fact that the international community united said the brushes particularly the year which is the bottom is you're into this just has been responsible i'm quoting the british government reckless indiscriminate cyber attacks in different boss over the world some well i mean i suppose that the experience that russia has had on the other side of the coin right does make it maybe more aware of the power that these sorts of cyber
attacks can in fact have were they ever to be directed towards russia itself to date you know there haven't been significant attacks and it's not ones of which were aware. aimed at russia. but you know russia certainly is aware of of how this game can be played and how the damage can be done whether in places like the u.k. and the united states or closer to home in ukraine in the baltics where there have been. various things whether done by people in the russian state or people you know acting through privately we don't exactly know we have our suspicions i suppose and time will tell. i think that's a little bit of a rabbit hole though to get into these sorts of accusations that involve secret services and this we're not going to be able to sort them out the reality is of course that states do have a right to protect themselves the question is the state in this case acting more to protect itself from foreign actors i see all war from domestic actors and and the
habit from the kremlin really since two thousand and four after the orange revolution the orange revolution in ukraine right has been to. accuse any opposition movement in russia of acting at the behest and with the backing of of foreign governments and so that there is a lot of nervousness that locates among those in russia who would like to see it for political course xander would you be concerned if the web traffic is suddenly routed through points controlled by the government in russia. i cannot even imagine how come they actually shut down the internet in russia because as i've already mentioned. well they have already tried to do this with telegram and it affected everyone but telegram so all of those attempts actually look a bit ridiculous because. they did not work on one simple reason the internet did
not enter russian federation as it did in china it entered russian federation sporadically we had thousands of different providers we do still have them and this is not quite possible even if it even if it is they will just spend a lot of money enormous sums of money and still it would not. let them control all the information and of course that would create a lot of problems for us for a for people who want to share independent information with no control but the main problem it creates for us right now is that is the fact that taxpayers are going to pay for that stupid law. victor when you look at the of the bill itself some of the provisions of the bill the really giving officials in moscow you powers to shut down whatever they think deem or decide is
a threat to the nation. well it will take years to implement this bill and there's you have correctly pointed out that has not yet passed the upper house of the russian parliament the council of the federation and there. are very likely to be more amendments to it and it is very likely that in the course of being implemented as frequently happens there will be sure there are amendments to the to the law to meet sure that the industry the eighty industry the internet service providers and other other parties to that are affected by the by the bill are comfortable implementing it in the most effective way and again i want to dispute what sam said about russia launching the tax against the west and the west never launching cyber attacks against russia in fact there have been there
have been publications citing going on you must sources in the western special services in american publications stating that cyber attacks have been had been ordered against russian against the russian banking system in the past few years so . russia just like other countries around the world has a lot to fear as far as possible actions by its adversary is. it against cyber infrastructure against its economic infrastructure using the internet and against its user the users of social media platform some do you think that the russian government is now paving the way to replicate the chinese great fire wall. no i don't think it is mostly because
as alex on there was saying earlier i don't think it's quite possible right that the internet has been a very different experience for for russians we have seen as i mentioned earlier since two thousand twelve to thirteen the introduction of a blacklist that have blocked a number of websites some of which are a good reason other were because they politically didn't fit in with the comments agenda and russians have proved very adept at using v p n's and other technology to to get around that sort of of blockage russians of all political stripes or the across the spectrum pridgen menace amount of in for of the value on their ability to get information the internet is important to all of them and so the likelihood is that the russian government will always be playing catch up when it comes to trying to shape behavior and the flow of information online alexander do you agree with the general sentiment in russia that the reason why they are trying to
implement this law is that for many is putting has been using mainstream television to advance his own agenda but suddenly he's discovering and his advisors are discovering that he's a poet is a turning to the digital platforms and suddenly they're becoming larger than life particularly not volley therefore he's trying to take his vengeance by targeting the internets. well i would totally agree with this statement because the the spreading the fact of the independent and. just the fact of itself of spreading information annoys putin and all the system this kleptocratic system because this system is being ruled by people from the cold war era they hate the. independent spreading information and they just want to control everything and of course they they are being pissed off by the fact that people are seeing truth in
the internet people are seeing. discussed. people are discussing some actions of. which are hatred in russia but people cannot take hatred all the time they are fed up with the hatred and they sooner or later they will go to some other sources for instance to the government is finally able to control the physical infrastructure of the platform however it would have to control the content of those blocks forbes i'll give you an idea if they have to deal with you tube with facebook and other international global social media networks how are they going to deal with them are they going to ask them to deliver the use of identity to clamp down on the freedom of expression how do you think the those giants will. make concessions to the russian government. well. google and other. giant social media giants have. been
negotiating for years with a change of government for example and a number of other a number of other garments taken steps for the so-called sovereign ization of their internet talking about thailand for example and vietnam and in fact singapore is in a similar process right now of assessing its internet policy and so the american. internet and social media giants will have to also look at their own policy in the future you mentioned facebook facebook has been facing criticism both in the united states in green britain and around the world for its own censorship efforts for banning users for making statements that are not to the liking of facebook management in fact there has been censorship in
facebook that due to ideological differences with what the facebook the body there should be leaves it to be correct to the correct line ok and a number of other there have been privacy concerns with facebook so at this point russia is not i want to eat or eat russia is not interested in cutting off the internet russia is not interested at this point in censoring were handing foreign internet. companies for these books or others because you want to change the situation in the other two fer if you choose that such action i'll have to move forward some do you think that giants like google you tube and other companies will ultimately have to compromise the international ideals or universal ideals of access to information and freedom of expression of the expense of the massive brevin is that the making countries like russia. well other guy i think victor has pointed out something very important which is that facebook and google and others
have made compromises in places like china in particular due to the size of that of that market right and they have come in fact if to the extent of they've been criticised by their governments in the west for censorship really it's been they've been criticised over privacy but they've been criticised over the compromises that they have made in the course they're into service and their shareholders are criticised for that as as well so there are indeed some very important elements right that these companies are having to come to grips with right are they you know out there to make money or do they have to recognise the social function and to a certain extent the democratizing function that they play in countries like russia or countries like iran potentially countries like china as you were running out of time thank you very much indeed sam green vic to all of a. sudden death and thank you for watching you can see the program again and the time by visiting a website. for further discussion goes

i'm down jordan doha with the top stories on the al jazeera a team of u.s. experts are on their way to help investigate the crash of an ethiopian airlines plane which killed all onboard fifty seven on board the new boeing seven three seven much went down just minutes after takeoff the second such incident involving the jet in the last six months the flight was headed to nairobi from. the morning is being observed in. the reports. nothing much is left but fragments of eighty three zero two at the crash scene near a few pieces eastern town off the shelf to the plane went down just six minutes after takeoff from international airport in the capital addis ababa prime minister ahmed was at the scene alia his office was a fast to tweet about the crash expressing condolences to those who had lost their loved ones one hundred fifty seven people on board non-survival among the most
