a number of countries pull the plug on the internets venezuela sudan and even zimbabwe just to name a few but how do they do it exactly while a government orders telecommunication companies or internet service providers to cut off or simply just slow down the internet across the entire country or even in certain hotspots often they say it's because of national security and even misinformation now it could be a complete blackout or the destruction can happen to certain websites and even mobile apps like what's up now digital rights activists are warning that internet freedom continues to decline globally in fact chad's as of friday has now spent a full year without access to internet and social media platforms like facebook twitter whatsapp and even viber and this tweet here just kind of gives you an idea because it says families and friends have been disconnected businesses have even struggle to market themselves and journalists have been restricted in their
attempts to reports reports unnoticed by the way there's a hashtag just in the corner keep its own that's been used for internet blackouts and this is also a problem because internet destruction like these have widespread effects especially on economies and if you take a look at this also by net blogs if you put in the countries i'm going to put chant in here and it will give you an idea of how much they stand to lose per day every day for when internet is destructed or even blocked in here it's a little over a half a million dollars of course but if you actually look at somewhere like in the u.s. where people are so much more connected you've got seven been dollars there that could be lost in one single day that just gives you an idea of the impacts when a government shuts down the internet of course there are ways around it v.p.n. is one of those things but it doesn't always work so thank you very much for that. british politicians are to vote for a third time on the prime minister's break sit deal but this time it only be
deciding on part of the agreement negotiated with the european union the government has promised that backing the deal will have secure a small departure from the e.u. on may twenty second terisa may's four deal has already been defeated twice in parliament made barca has our report from london efforts to secure backing for teresa mayes deal are intensifying with senior government ministers urging m.p.'s to give the twice defeated divorce deal another go this after may promise to resign if a proposal is passed those tipped to replace a say now is the time to back the deal in seventeen point four million people of this leave the european union have a chance to make sure that we do that's what everyone can support the prime minister's bill. the speaker of the house told the government that it could only put the deal before parliament again if it was fundamentally different but i do expect the government to meet the test of change so the government devised a plan to split the deal already agreed with the e.u.
into its two constituent parts the withdrawal agreement and the political declaration the would draw agreement includes details about citizens' rights the fifty one billion dollars breaks that bill for leaving the e.u. and the northern irish border it's a legally binding document and has to be passed in parliament by friday to allow the u.k. to leave the e.u. on may the twenty second. the political declaration on the other hand dictates the future relationship between the u.k. and e.u. and forms the basis of future trade talks it's a much shorter document it's also not legally binding by separating the two plan to vote only on the withdrawal agreement was given the green light by the speaker to go before parliament on friday and this was how it was presented this house notes the european council decision at the twenty second of march twenty nine thousand taken in agreement with the united kingdom but want does it mean in short the government's using the friday deadline set by the e.u.
to get eighty percent of to resume a's proposal passed to reset the brakes it departs account to may the twenty second allowing britain to leave the e.u. with a deal in titling the country to a two year transition period it's been called the bare bones of bricks it is a big risk for the government considering hard line break cities and to reason may's own party and northern ireland's democratic unionist party that props up maine's government of repeatedly refused to back it. they'll have to rely on support from other sides of the house but the opposition labor party has said that it would be the blindest of blind bricks it that would mean leaving. with up salute no idea where we're heading but except all. the more m.p.'s are continuing to look for an alternative to to resign may's deal after seizing control of parliamentary proceedings on wednesday no single plan gained a majority m.p.'s will vote again on monday the big question both leavers and
remain as are asking now is whether to reserve may's breaks a gamble will pay off the barca al-jazeera westminster. live not too hard abdel-hamid in london for us so what are the third zone spying b.z. to happen in an over an hour tell us about what's been happening and what the expectations are. well certainly there's been a very long debate did we in the fourth hour of that parliamentary debate. what's going to happen is i think everybody's better at this stage is a lot of speculation going on but in the next in the coming hour we should hear from both the reason may and opposition leader gerry and then there will be that vote now joining me here is alan wager he is from the every search i do you say in the changing you think tag i heard a great source university had you been following this debate this morning am i
wrong to think that some of the briggs's years are changing their mind and saying look better have this deal than risk a very long extension or risk being part of the european elections you're right that's exactly what they're saying and this defeat this they still has been defeated twice in the house of commons but now the numbers look a lot tighter because a lot of these people that approve or exit into reason may's conservative party are saying look this is the last chance for part of these european elections and they'll be a big long delay to article fifty this is the day we were meant to be leaving the european union the twenty ninth of march and this device you say is symbolic and saying to the to these m.p.'s look if this breaks it all no breaks a little which is basically what series a man has been saying all along now i've been asked this question all morning do you know what is is there any indication on whether this is going because of the sheer scale of those previous defeats the first two songs has been defeated why storage it looks like she won't be able to close this gap the still sobbing the party that are holding firm and saying look
this isn't the breaks that we want and everyone in the labor party almost is voting against so she's not quite getting those numbers together it looks like to get the deal over the line but it's really close and this is in many. weighs the last roll of the dice a series of money ok and now she has cleverly one could argue separated the withdrawal agreement from the sept second chapter which is a political declaration by the e.u. says ok for today but you still have to tell us what's happening and what do you want to what happens with the political declaration because that's to that's where all the problems come from right here so her attempt to get it over the line is to say this treaty will vote on this today and then the aspirations for the future relationship between the u.k. and the let's sort those out later let's all those out next week the problem is that both need to go through the house of commons for the deal to be confirmed for the deal to be ratified so even if she does somehow get over the course the line today the problems continue because she has to get this new version of this new deal for the future past the house of commons to get i know it's very difficult to
predict but if you had to get your money on something would it be able and a date would it be able to make twenty second or maybe next year what i think it looks likely the vote will be voted on today and then i think we're looking at a longer potentially indefinite extension of the brics a process and on monday they are ideas indicative votes again on wednesday didn't really think they didn't solve any problem what do you think is going to happen on monday so it looks likely that maybe some sort of softer bricks at staying in and in the customs union which means being quite close to the european union in terms of trade links that could go through the house of commons so as we see things develop as parliament takes control from trees in may she loses today what we're likely to see is a relationship between the u.k. and the e.u. which is which is closer than the one the trees a maze negotiated and that's what will happen if m.p.'s take control of this ok well they did try to take control two days ago didn't work very well but maybe on monday anyway where everybody here is waiting to see what's going to unfold in the
next hour or so inside the building behind me. it's very difficult as we said to predict what will happen whether it's the reason we'll get it her way or not but certainly if the british people wanted some answers i'm not going to get them yet and we continue to cover the process throughout the day here on al-jazeera whether you hold abdel-hamid live there in london thank you for the moment olga lead to more head on this al-jazeera news hour including saudi arabia free some female activists but with conditions plus. an only. on the u.n. peacekeeping base we're just about to board a canadian air force medi vac exercise operation find out next why this has become one of the deadliest peacekeeping operation in the u.s. history. in sports even when he's on his knees tiger can still produce the magic john have the details of.

trying to score points against one another here it's all about playing fair with leave and remain voters bowling side by side in a town which overwhelmingly voted to exit the e.u. if it doesn't happen. and how do you feel. i should now. go to the fact that if. a. person fires. back in the twenty six same referendum boston poll the highest proportion of lead voters anywhere in the u.k. just over seventy five percent of people who voted said they wanted to leave the european union thousands of people from eastern europe have made this corner of
england which have been relatively untouched historically by immigration the home drawn by the author of plentiful work in the fields and factories which appear local people want to do. pull gleason is a local councilor and voted to remain in the referendum but boston has been hurt by the failure of authority to react quickly enough to an influx of new workers those workers could have come from anywhere they happen to come from eastern europe and. they have been exploited and the exploitation has forced up rents and forced down wages so we are in the bottom five in the country for wages we have some of the highest rents in the middle and at length a you start to help people who come to live here from outside the u.k. and say uncertainty surrounding bricks it is unsettling if you know what to expect we can prepare for it or if we don't know what to expect and nobody else knows what
to expect then the people are on certain and some people do tend to leave some people stay just want to see how it's going to go and some quarters are really worried back in the bowling hole there's no call for a rematch or second referendum there is consensus that somehow the politicians must do more to try to navigate their way out of this political crisis and that he would al-jazeera boston. now the head of the arab league has rejected the u.s. decision to recognize israel's came over the occupied golan heights. has also called for political solutions to conflicts in syria and libya and yemen his comments came at a meeting of regional foreign ministers ahead of sunday thirtieth sleek summit meeting in tunisia joining us now is modern bashar senior political analyst a number of issues on the table at the sadly summit first of all are you expecting these arab league leaders to project
a unified position when it comes to the issue of the golan heights well look i think we have a precedent by which we can really predict exactly what's going to happen and that is the question of jerusalem or give you an example of with a mother will hate the secular general the arab league he said back in december two thousand and seventeen that u.s. recognition of jerusalem as a capital to be dangerous reckless and so on so forth today this we hear similar language on the high side but did anything transpire from that no nothing to us but they wanted the united nations they got the united nations general assembly resolution in favor of palestine against the u.s. position but in fact some of the arab leaders went back to their people went back to their media outlets and told them to deemphasize the question of this dispute if you will with washington so i think and i know say that unfortunately the arab regimes will might say certain words and come up with certain resolutions in order
to please their people but in fact they will take very little action many arab states have softened their position to syria's bashar al assad syria is likely to be one of the issues discussed at this summit do you see assad being reintegrated into this latest well there were some expectations that this could have happened. by this week but doesn't seem like it because there's some serious. opposition to it so while the likes of the u.a.e. which already reopened its embassy in damascus and. iraq lebannon and egypt are encourage but believe it or not it was washington that put pressure on. so would you arabia i think also the european union for the arab league not to move with this step because it's such a fluid grint. reincorporation if you will of the bashar assad regime that is
basically a war criminal into the arab league at this at this time so i think there were all sorts of international pressures and that's why it did not come through yet. obviously divisions within the arab league disputes among some member states who are part of this hour. how do does the current regional you know political situation how is it affecting the different relationships among countries within the arab league how we see new if not alliances at least new friendships coming about as a result of what's happening in the region certainly it's like a quicksand right among the twenty plus members of that ugly and that configuration seem to change and just until recently we seem to be looking at the gulf war narcotics with jordan and morocco to be at the same side but clearly there is a bit of a friction now and it seems to me from the summit yesterday between the jordan one arc and the more awkward monarch that they have taken
a closer position to kuwait and qatar and farther from saudi arabia u.a.e. and bahrain so i think that will probably be afflicted tomorrow but you know let me just underline the following. we are definitely in the toward living the summit of the klein division weakness each country to its own and the arab regimes have only one concern their survival the survival of the regimes not even the interest of their countries right but. clearly the out of big itself is not the problem it is the a members of this club called the the arab league because any original institutions that are likely arab league is an important forum for countries to come together discuss debate and so on so forth that we can assume the arab league today to face to the likes of trump administration's decision to some the golan heights to face up to the questions of terrorism immigration so the question of war within the arab world itself really is that
responsibility of its members the arab world to the arab league to the is weak because its members are not taking up their responsibilities seriously if you go out to the arab league. quarters in cairo all kinds of wonderful documents are collecting dust common defense common economic policy coverage i think that the summit is happening in tunis and not cairo what i thought surely changes every year and right they had quarters happens in so last year it was in saudi arabia they before in egypt and a few years ago was in qatar it's sometimes it does not take place in a place for example like libya or like amount of one point because countries ask for it but also who shows up it's really important isn't it absolutely it was interesting to note that the sodium or not showed up two days before and usually they show up in the same morning and leave in the afternoon they were even stay over night but i think the saudi arabia is trying to get closer to two and it's maybe used to mrs economic crisis in order to buy more influence within the country
as we said earlier because so that it was losing influence with the moral core and . thank you so much my chain side on this mountain bashar i think. it's. now more people are being forced into refugee camps in nigeria because of fighting between separatists and government troops in southern cameroon more than thirty thousand have been officially registered but aid workers say the actual number is much higher. rates reports from one of the four permanent settlements built for refugees in nigeria's cost of us that. i get on refugio camp isa sprawling community of thousands and it's growing every week as violence continues to force more people across the border into nigeria. here there are no families preparing the evening meal. it's been a year now since they fled the fighting they may have a shelter and food for now but only one thing preoccupies their main.
player. you're supposed to live where you. are praying that god put her problems it will get finished. but like many refugees beltre knows that day is long way off more for comparators continue to arrive with stories of continuing violence by call. as old refugees move into permanent structures you ones are admitted to take over temporary turned shelters they were created separatism brasilia movement is fighting to break away from cameroon thousands have been internally displaced one more than thirty thousand of crossed into neighboring nigeria this is the i got on refugee camp home to some six thousand cameroonian refugees is one of the four permanent structures built to cope with a steady flow of people fleeing the violence which is separatist and cameroonian
forces thousands more are waiting outside to come in but facilities are overstretched. is the leader of the refugee community he says the past year has been most difficult in their lives. it has not been easy for us we don't have access to medication. can see every day we did our own fellows refrigerate are dying every day because of. how old i think. transportation only thievin de mint calls. apart from food education for refugee children is also a problem the refugees believe that only one organization can end their plight. to intervene into this problem toothy how. obvious reach only remedy to all these crises unless that is done most of the refugees here are digging for
