nigeria. britain's parliament has rejected the prospect of a no deal breck's it in another day of high drama over the u.k.'s departure from the e.u. and now politicians will be asked if the leaving date just over two weeks away. but in baba reports from london. these days to the right three hundred twenty one in the news to the left two hundred seventy eight voting to rule out a no deal breaks it on to any circumstances but what's it worth the results yet another blow for prime minister to reserve my messages being sent by parliament the motion isn't legislation so as things stand the u.k. still leaves the european union on the twenty ninth of march the legal default. remains that the u.k. will leave the e.u. without a deal. i don't say this unless

a special tribunal known this it's tasked with judging the worst crimes committed during the civil conflict. ducasse said he was seeking to revise several provisions already approved by the country's constitutional court. decided to object to six of one hundred fifty nine articles of the specials jurisdictions for peace law since i consider them convenient i invite congress to debate the changes in a constructive manner. former fike rebels and members of colombia's military have already gone before the tribunals which offers reduced penalties and sentences other than prison for those who tell the truth and compensate victims. among other provisions aims to remove sexual crimes from the tribunal's jurisdiction and create a separate system for military members responsible of crimes against humanity opposition parties accuse the president of breaching the constitution. if you open the stall
11:14 am
the risk goes beyond the functions of the tribunal we are putting at risk our democracy and the rule of law. most political analysts believe the veto will weaken the tribunals undermining the transitional justice system at the heart of the accords and here we're not only talking about the mobilized guerrillas we're talking about members of the military who have vocally expressed their desire to remain within the transitional justice system. these challenges show that colombia still far from overcoming the deep divisions surrounding the controversial peace deal signed in two thousand and six being the issue will most likely once again and in the country's constitutional court in the meantime opposition parties are calling for a major protest against a veto next monday i mean from that i'm good i just you know. still ahead on the al-jazeera news hour we hear from some of those who have lost loved ones in the

11:21 am
the u.s. state department has changed its description of the golan heights from israeli occupied to israeli controlled in its annual global human rights report israel has been lobbying u.s. president donald trump to recognize israeli sovereignty over the territory a separate section on the west bank and gaza does not refer to the palestinian territory as being occupied or under occupation rosalyn jordan has more from washington. in recent years the u.s. state department has been criticized for using its annual human rights reports as political documents the reports are supposed to catalog how well countries are behaving and are observing human rights and whether they have been violating the rights of their citizens and other persons this year's report for twenty eight teen is no different the u.s. is no longer calling the west bank or the golan heights occupied territories
11:22 am
language that stems from a number of united nations resolutions and so both human rights groups and journalists are raising questions about whether the trumpet ministration is trying to stay on the right side of the government of prime minister benjamin netanyahu in israel by removing this language instead this is what ambassador michael kozak who is in charge of the office that drafted these reports had to say about the change in language occupied territory has a legal meaning to it i think what they tried to do was shift more to a just a geographic description so we said israel goal goal on west bank jerusalem and it's it's a complicated report because there are sometimes multiple authorities who have already over people in particular parts of that territory so it's very complicated one to true right but that my understanding from the from the policy bears on this
11:23 am
is that there's no change in our. outlook or our policy bs of territories and the need for a negotiated. settlement or the reports also go far in trying to seemingly advance another trumpet ministration initiative which is to make a wrong on a pariah state and the preface to the report the secretary of state michael pompei oh no it's that it's iran. that has been quite busa of its citizens and is trying to promote instability in other countries around the middle east this is another issue that has human rights activists very concerned the state department also highlights the murder of saudi journalists. it points out the kingdom hasn't provided a detailed explanation if its investigation into the killing inside saudi's istanbul consulate last october the report goes on to say there's been
11:24 am
a range of other human rights abuses in saudi arabia such as the detention of women's rights activists and the torture of prisoners and it slams china for the massed attention of weaker muslims saying the sort of abuses it's inflicted haven't been seen since the one nine hundred thirty s. now that hashimi is the director of the center for middle east studies at the university of denver he says the trump administration will resist all pressure to blame the crown prince for killing. even in the us the overwhelming consensus of the u.s. intelligence agencies pointed the finger at the role of the saudi crown prince that was completely removed from the state department report on the ship murder and that's perfectly consistent with the trumpet ministrations position that it does not want to hold the saudi crown prince responsible for the murder of jamal khashoggi even though the entire world including the entire us intelligence sort of apparatus and agencies believe that the saudi crown prince you know was responsible
11:25 am
for that murder so this is more coverup of the murder by the trump administration in support of the saudi crown prince eisel fighters are still holding out against u.s. forces in eastern syria who are continuing their bombardment of the group's last shred of territory near the iraqi border earlier syrian democratic forces said as many as twenty five hundred fighters have surrendered within a twenty four hour period alyson forces launched a major offensive on sunday. mexico's government is trying to find asylum seekers who are thought to have been abducted from a bus in a northern border states from mexico city david mercer reports. it was along this stretch of highway in northern mexico that dozens of migrants went missing last week on tuesday mexican officials said a group of hooded gunmen stopped the bus in the middle of the day a few hours drive from the u.s. border. witnesses said the armed men then brought out
11:26 am
a list of names and took away a group of men from central america is that is that what it said because we left our countries to look for basic things both personally and for our families and to see that other human beings look to hurt others as unfortunate. the incident comes less than two weeks after the kidnapping of at least fifteen men in the same area and the movie and then i stopped by we came here fleeing our countries and we found our cell. almost the same situation was because we came here feeling from the criminality that in. time a leap us is a battleground between competing drug cartels and as one of mexico's most dangerous states in two thousand and ten is that is drug gang kidnapped and killed seventy two migrants have died the following year dozens more migrants were abducted and murdered. on tuesday mexico's president and this man well lopez obrador said this latest group of migrants were not necessarily abducted.
11:27 am
and were investigating to be sure because there's a theory that it's a method that it's used to get yourself into u.s. territory it's not that they disappear but rather that they cross the border that way we've already had two cases like that. in response to the incident mexico's top security official admitted that security is deficient in practically the entire country and that thousands more police are needed mexico's new president has promised to protect migrants passage of the country on their way to united states but these latest incidents are stark reminder of how vulnerable migrants are and the magnitude of challenges that the country faces david mercer al jazeera in mexico city the governor of california has issued a reprieve to more than seven hundred inmates on death row his executive order stops any further executions while he remains in office california had put more people to death than any other us state as
11:28 am
a gallagher reports. in the last forty years more than eight hundred fifty people have been sentenced to death in california in that time period the state executed thirteen people the rest have remained on death row for years on end wednesday's executive order from governor gavin newsom effectively holds any further executions while he remains in office the governor of california doesn't have the power to scrap the death penalty but his decision is being seen as a reflection of changing views on the issue we are laying claim to having the largest death row in the western hemisphere a largest death row in the united states of america two times the size of the next largest state florida and it didn't necessarily square and doesn't necessarily square with i think the values that are represented in the folks behind me and represented the hearts and minds of tens of millions of californians i think we're better than this effective immediately the execution chamber at the notorious sign
11:29 am
quentin prison will be dismantled as well as the state's lethal injection program california hasn't executed anyone since two thousand and six and in two previous ballots the voters backed the death penalty in one narrowly supporting speeding up executions but the state's governor says the lives of innocent people are at stake as a national county science report that came out that estimates one out of every twenty five people on death row is innocent if that's the case. that means if we move forward executing seven hundred thirty seven people in california we will have executed roughly thirty people that are innocent. new since executive order augie's that the death penalty is inherently unfair applied more often to people of color and those with mental disabilities california now joins colorado washington and oregon where similar orders have been issued and a gallica al-jazeera at least three people are believed to have died from an

outbreak of pneumonia plague on the border between uganda and the democratic republic of congo it's added pressure on health workers in this part of the d r c who are struggling to contain a major ebola outbreak. it's great concerning for us here in uganda because. they already an outbreak of. ebola in see. these additional outbreak of suspected leg. good pharma complicate an already difficult situation from the uganda will working closely with the ministry of health and the district health authority in the zone but district this has been developed. in. we have been there with a team of the national response team rapid response team to effect control measures in the district it is highly impact but it's quite treatable and
11:31 am
this affected that we identified with district is undergoing treatment and is improving steadily on the congress side we understand there is a conflict going on as well. i don't have all the details from the congress right but from the uganda side working in it's quite stable and that's why we're able to quickly hunt for. the suspected outbreak donald trump's former campaign manager has been ordered to spend even more time in prison palm out of four was already facing just under four years behind bars for financial crimes and he's now been sentenced after pleading guilty to conspiracy to party cocaine has a story from washington. i don't know seventy years old paul metaphor was wheeled into a washington d.c. courtroom to find out if he would likely die in prison the judge could have ordered him to spend up to ten years in prison on top of the nearly four he was facing from
11:32 am
another judge in the end he was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison in all but in all likelihood will spend quite a bit less given credit for time served and good behavior still his lawyers tried to tell the media they were disappointed judge jackson. conceded that there was absolutely no evidence of any russian collusion in this case or that they just want to florence to court whatever will know every day it's one of the elite of the asian latino russian oh let's not forget they should actually in this the protesters write a poem and of course lawyer was not telling the truth the judge specifically said this has nothing to do with the collusion the case before her was not about that and we don't know yet what special counsel robert mueller is going to produce and she actually said when it comes to this no collusion refrain that it's not clear if that's accurate because you can't say that there was nothing out of the investigation when you actually hurt the investigation by lying to those that were

looking into it still u.s. president donald trump echoed the false claim no collusion there's no collusion there's no collusion and there hasn't been collusion the white house has hinted the president could pardon man a fort but trump tried to downplay that possibility. have not even given it a thought as of this moment it's not something that right now in my mind i do feel badly football metaphor the president could theoretically get metaphor out of prison by issuing a pardon but that only applies to federal crimes not state and shortly after the sentencing the manhattan district attorney announced this sixteen count indictment charging metaphor with mortgage fraud and other charges son in the message to the president he can try and get men afford out of prison but they'll move to put him right back in. al-jazeera washington the u.s. on the taliban say they've made progress in their latest round of talks aimed at ending afghanistan.
