12:00 am
team on sunday to take charge of the country the ruling military council promises of reforms have done little to satisfy people's demands a second look back at how sudan actually got here though just to remind you as the end of last year that the protests started over the rising cost of bread but soon came the demands got a lot bigger that omar bashir should step down more than a thousand protesters were detained by government forces in february sudan's national security and intelligence services said bashir would step down but the president is defined and instead he called national state of emergency and by april thousands of demonstrators had reached their military headquarters and police said they would support a peaceful transition of power and it was on april eleventh the military announced yes but she had been ousted arrested but that has still not appeased the protesters as we will hear now with mohamed vul a correspondent joining us from her to me it's a big step isn't it mohamed this idea of an alternate transitional council when the
12:01 am
military is saying so firmly no it is in charge for now and that this process will happen over a period of time. outside the discussion about the creation of this government has been going on for a week now and the i mean it involves lots of differences between the different components of the social class the people who have been given this green light by the military council to form this government we know that there are the forces of change and freedom the forces behind the change and freedom who have been the movers and shakers behind these protests along with the alongside the sudanese are professionals association these two groups have been talking about forming this government and also there are two additional parties every component of the political class wants to have a share in this and a say in it so that that's why it took days but now we are. sunday when they submit
12:02 am
their list of people they are they are suggesting for as members of that cabinet that's why we have seen any test as an increase in the numbers of protesters coming to the venue in front of the military headquarters because they want to send a strong message to the military that it's not only the creation of the government it's or so other points very important points like the demand to create a presidential council a civilian presidential council instead of just a military council they want the majority of members in the presidential council to be civilians from the protest aside from the opposition side and only limited the presentation they are for the military but even inside those parties or so there are differences because. the islamist leaning parties those that have been closest to the model bashir are now saying they want the military council to state and that's understood to be because they are afraid of uprooting them and they are
12:03 am
afraid of harsh measures if there is no one there for them and that coincides with accusations from among the protesters that actually the islamists are still ruling sudan the old regime the deep state is still holding so that and is protecting. components and remnants of that energy so that it's a very very difficult situation for both parties and it is a very long road ahead today they have organized friday prayer inside the venue itself thousands attended that prayer and also we have been there and we have seen how they are preparing to even fast the month of ramadan in that place if things don't change if the demands are not met so they are preparing for a long long long cycle ahead until they tell us until every demand is met by the military council extraordinary strength in those protests isn't there that's mohamed in how to thank you also him organ part of our team there in culture and
12:04 am
she has been following the protests on the ground this is her report. it's been nearly two weeks since protesters started with their sit in in front of the army headquarters here for two but it doesn't look like they're going to be going home anytime soon there's thing that they're going to continue with their protests until the military council was announced that president bashir from power on the eleventh of april has overpowered an independent transitional government now the military council says it's up to the political parties to come up with a way that the cabinet will be formed and the way should be run by the political parties are not in agreement on how that government should look like and how long it should be for some parties want a period of one year only while others including the sudanese professional association the body that has been spearheading the calls for protest is demanding of four year transitional period now most parties and dissidents professional association are saying that these protesters here are the only card that they have to put pressure on the military council to hand over power they're saying that if
12:05 am
the protesters go from here and leave then they will have no way to force the military council to hand over power to an independent civilian transitional government so they've been calling on people to continue with their state and to continue with the protest until power is handed over the sudanese professional association says that it is going to. announced the list of members it wants to see in the cabinet on sunday and people are waiting for that but most of all they're waiting for an announcement from the association and from political parties that there will be power handed over from the military council to an independent civilian government so that they can go home and call their revolution and victory . for their protests are underway in algeria as well for the night success of week these pictures showing thousands of people demonstrating in the capital algiers long term president at the lizzie's but a flicker of course he was asked to do earlier this month but the protesters there continue to demand change because of the interim government's links to beautifully and delays to the presidential election until july. police in turkey have announced

12:49 am
hello everyone i'm here in doha with the world news from al-jazeera donald trump has put in a call to the libyan warlord khalifa haftar offering his support strongman trying to take control of the capital. stepping up the pressure sudanese protesters plan to name their own civilian transitional team to take over the country. i'm going to talk to in a house in eastern france rebuilding not to down won't be easy this cathedral proves that it can be done. so u.s. president donald trump on the offensive after the release of the heavily censored mullah report into russian meddling in the twenty sixteen election he's calling it a total victory and in the past hour has also been on twitter calling the document the crazy report the whole thing a hoax house speaker nancy pelosi is organizing
12:50 am
a meeting for monday so the democrats can plan their next move and the u.s. house judiciary committee chairman has issued a subpoena for the full uncensored report and despite the report clearly blaming russian entities for trying to influence the u.s. election moscow doesn't seem to bothered the foreign minister says nothing in the report warrants the kremlin's attention so let's check in with rob reynolds who is in florida west palm beach resort of course where donald trump spends his weekends hi rob let's talk through what the democrats are up to first of all because there was a lot in this report which seemed to be what was interpreted as robert muller throwing it over to congress effectively and saying you have to deal with this you have to act on this. that's right can all come on not in so many words but that was certainly the implication that many members of congress picked up on and as you mentioned jerrold nadler the chairman of the house judiciary committee has subpoenaed the full report without redactions and any other supporting material
12:51 am
he's given the justice department until may first to comply with that navl said earlier today the report is painting a damning picture of a president who lies all the time and demands others lie for him but the democrats have something of a dilemma in front of them they have to figure out how much to go ahead with further investigations now that the molar report is out now that the president is claiming total exoneration so there will be a meeting of the democrats on monday just after the easter holiday and here's what the leader of house democrats speaker nancy pelosi had to say just a short while ago. whatever the issue and challenge that we face the congress of the united states will honor its oath of office to protect and defend the constitution of the united states to protect our democracy we believe
12:52 am
that the first article article one the legislative branch has a responsibility of oversight of our democracy and we will exercise that and don't trump's reaction robert find it interesting he copes about's total victory but also calls it a crazy report. well that's right the president is in an angry mood on twitter this morning he started out with a with a tweet that i think we can show you on screen now saying statements are being made about me by certain people in the crazy mall a report which are fabricated and totally untrue he went on to say that some people presumably referring to former members of the white house staff and perhaps members of former members of the president's legal team claimed to have made notes about meetings with the president that cast him in an unflattering light he said that these statements made and which appeared in the moeller report were completely
12:53 am
fabricated except that he used a somewhat more pungent anglo-saxon phrase to describe their lack of voracity yeah colorful language from the president of the united states thank you rob reynolds in west palm beach they're still with the president and donald trump has made a telephone call to libya's warlord khalifa haftar to offer his support in a statement the white house said trump recognizes have to a significant role in fighting terrorism and securing libya's oil resources after his troops have led an offensive on the libyan capital which is controlled by a u.n. recognized government might happen or in washington d.c. following this and this is really interesting mike given as i just pointed out that opposing government took on a five to is. recognized by the united nations and here is donald trump throwing his loss in with the opposition with with thirty five to. well it is a very interesting indeed it snowed as well that the phone call was made on monday the only publicized on this particular day let's also note too that there was
12:54 am
a session of the u.n. security council just twenty four hours away which the united states joined russia in opposing a resolution calling for a truce in libya now this is a massive turnaround on the part of the united states attitude to libya just earlier this month the secretary of state was harshly critical of the opposition forces off the forces of khalifa haftar so this is essentially a complete turnaround in u.s. policy in the region president making that phone call to khalifa haftar expressing his support for a man who others in the west to see as a warlord and see as the tripoli government insists a war criminal so certainly this is a massive shift in u.s. policy and a u.s. now has joined egypt to the u.a.e. and saudi arabia in backing the forces of khalifa haftar
12:55 am
a massive turnaround right so it's about u.s. alliances as much as anything else and i suspect as well as everything certainly libya has to do with resources oil all these sorts of things. well interesting as well kemal that in that to reported conversation president trump congress. for protecting libya's oil resources now in the view of the internationally recognized government has in fact stolen those resources rather than protecting them so once again you've got a situation where the internationally recognized government in tripoli is now it in effect being opposed by the united states which up until a few weeks ago was publicly in support of that and publicly criticizing those forces that were opposed to it a big turnaround yet fascinating development thank you for that mike hanna in washington. police in turkey said they have detained two suspected spies working
12:56 am
for the united arab emirates both were arrested in istanbul on monday they are thought to have down that intelligence on arab nationals when i arrived in turkey last october the other arrived later to help his colleague more on this from the taj going to him in istanbul. sources tell us two men were arrested inside a hotel room in istanbul on monday they've been described as intelligence operatives an encrypted computer stashed in a hidden compartment was also seized they've allegedly admitted that they have were working for the united arab emirates but they are not citizens of the. sources say the men have been under turkish surveillance for six months during that time they contacted turkish analysts they inquired about qatar's investment in turkey the two countries are close allies the u.a.e. is part of a saudi led blockade against qatar intended to isolate the country the two men also
12:57 am
allegedly contacted a suspect in the gym out because shoji cates the shoji was the saudi and washington post columnist murdered inside the saudi consulate in istanbul last october now a senior official tells reuters that one of these men first arrived in turkey days after case shoji was murder the second soon arrived sources tell us that the men may have been here collecting information about arab dissidents since the arab spring in two thousand and eleven many have sought exile here in turkey another prevailing theory is that the operatives presence here in turkey may have a direct link to the shoji murder the u.a.e. is a very close ally of saudi arabia and the country faced international condemnation after show g.'s murder sources say with turkey's relationship with saudi. arabia and egypt strange perhaps the u.a.e.

was attempting to open up a new avenue of collecting intelligence here in turkey the two men are expected to face political military and international charges. several cuban doctors working in kenya have been moved to safety after two of their colleagues were kidnapped a week ago. and based in neighboring somalia are suspected of the attack in which a police guard was killed the kenyan government there was ruled out paying a ransom soil in the kenyan city of mendota. the incident happened in broad daylight of around six jim right on this street and that time of the morning the people here it was very busy people. and those we talked to. a normal police something that is. then they realised something was wrong when they saw this man coming out of the shooting they then bundled the cuban doctors into
12:59 am
their vehicle and drove. about two kilometers away now they the police and the military all the involved in trying to rescue these cuban doctors. from kenya and from somalia as well trying to negotiate a release security has been beefed up. for example wasn't there before. and no one has claimed responsibility and the government has been. to talk about that but we have seen in the last few years a series of the talks in areas along the border including and especially after kenya. and its troops to somalia. to fight. alongside the african union forces and with the national as well we see. and boxes and schools and assassinations as well we're talking about
1:00 am
a very long a seven hundred kilometer long border with somalia forests very difficult to secure in pots and we haven't seen a major incident in the last meal so yes so when something like this happens people raise a lot of confound with talk to some of them the same that the government she needs to act as quickly as possible to make sure that these doctors come back safely and to stall the face of those who are leaving town like that. will grab a break when we come back a month off to the massacre of more than one hundred fifty mali and hoda the country's entire governments resigned to choose to failing to protect its citizens and a rescue in the outback is a dingo a drug for change month old toddler.
