writing in the china in the showers all heavy but not in the same place is not consistent line of writing this this is a daily manifestation so you get some pretty big down poles for example in one g.b. hasnt like a hundred sixty millimeters in twenty four hours on saturday by sunday i've got a picture of rain spreading through ground on towards hong kong again and sporadic outbreaks right as far up as sichuan but everywhere but the humidity you'll smell it you're feeling and you'll hear the thunder of a nonevent looks to draw a picture on monday for most of the south because the last about for the north through one of the yangtze valley and that tails off towards vietnam increasingly it's places like vietnam cambodia and thailand where the showers a light to build the whole lot has moved north it was concentrating in indonesia for the last few weeks from now the rain is nasty spreading though north into some philippines to consider some entre just on the edge of screen that circulation is a trying to form tropical cyclone which is at sea at the moment my head towards
11:17 am
india so everything's moving north and the point of view of cloud and rain which bring some rain up into sri lanka as well but of course mostly the story in india and bangladesh is the pre monsoon heat. the weather sponsored by catherine was. from the bamboo all the students navigating dangerous rapids from the time we depart through the time we finished are scared to the fission and dicing with death. i'm afraid of falling i'm afraid of dying but if i don't go by coffee my family needs the men who go to the extreme just to make a living not you have to be a strong swimmer otherwise the surf and risking it all vietnam on al-jazeera. one of the really special things about working for al-jazeera is that even as a camera woman i get to have so much empathy and contribution to
11:18 am
a story i feel we cover this region better than anyone else would be for that is either very. liberally particularly because you have a lot of people that are deployed on political issues we are with the people we live to tell the real stories are just mended is to deliver in-depth journalism we don't feel inferior to the audience across the globe. and again you're watching al-jazeera monitor of our top stories this protest leaders and the military in sudan i've reached a deal to form a joint council made up of people from both sides they'll talk about a peaceful transition to civilian rule that's after weeks of protests calling on
11:19 am
the military to mediately hand over power. mozambique's government is urged people to move to higher ground after another powerful cycle forecasters are predicting more heavy rain which could lead to flooding and mudslides. mr lankan president has banned two groups accused of being behind the easter sunday bombings security forces have been carrying out raids to round up more suspects. believed to be. voters in spain will head to the polls this sunday for their third election in less than five years no single party is predicted to win an outright majority after a campaign dominated by the rise of the far right and the issue of catalonia its independence sonia gago has more from madrid. a final call to mobilize the party faithful spain's socialist prime minister pedro sanchez surrounded by
11:20 am
a sea of supporters urges them to go to the ballot box the country deserves to turn the page in the last seven years and look to the future with hope and excitement which is precisely what we are offering our citizens to the young what we are asking is that you vote for your future and therefore vote for the socialist party . voters have a wide choice decades of dominance by two political parties has given way to a multi-party system the largest players are still the socialist party and the people's party but their influence is gradually ebbing away. in the socialist maybe the head of the polls in the lead up to the election but the reality is that even if either side does when the most votes he will still have to go to coalition with the far left regional parties if you fail to do that but it falls on to the people's marty and they were have to do a deal with the far right either way it is a big compromise for both parties. the main spoiler in this unpredictable
11:21 am
election box capitalizing on the populist wave spreading through europe the anti immigration policies have resonated amongst voters angered at the status quo the constitutional crisis caused by catalonia as attempt to secede has also dominated this campaign it's the first time a far right party has entered mainstream politics since the dictatorship of general franco so what does it mean sovereignty won't be broken in catalonia it won't be surrendered in brussels we're not going to kneel down in front of those who don't respect the anti austerity together we can and center right citizens parties have a chance of being part of a national government. previous coalitions have struggled in spain disagreeing factions have failed to pass national budgets the makeup of the next government is far from clear polling ahead of sunday's vote suggested forty percent of voters
11:22 am
were struggling to make up their minds there are some people in between p.p.o. there are some people whose if they've been between. a man some of them between. so we can see that there's not a cure but on all four you know one party. whatever the result forming a coalition is likely to take time and in a reflection of what's happening across europe the only certainty is that in politics and spain has become more fractured more polarized a sign of the times when increasing incompatibility. states. al-jazeera literate. and many catalonians hope sunday's results will help their cause independence leaders there have been rallying supporters some of them from prison john are reports from. the letters of support arrived regularly after eighteen months in prison and on trial in a drip catalans haven't forgotten pro independence former interior minister for him
11:23 am
and his wife lara and their daughters know that you are kim hasn't forgotten them he doesn't i lingered in my desert with us. thing that he called next year we don't celebrate together and he's with us now. the trial of twelve cattle and independence leaders on charges of rebellion sedition and misuse of public funds follows the region's referendum and unilateral declaration of independence which was met by police violence in two thousand and seventeen it's taken on heavy significance for a movement struggling to reassert itself last in search of a way to achieve its goal. i see very clearly that people don't feel like compromising in this ends up giving up of recognizing a mistake or renouncing it i don't see that it is possible that some people may think that we need more time that it doesn't have to be an immediate but i don't
11:24 am
see any reason nation at all if not now then what is to happen in the interim at the national level spain's socialist government may pay a heavy price in this weekend's election for its attempts to negotiate over catalonia a surge in support for the far right nationalist vox party risks dragging the entire political landscape to the right making a compromise over cattle and separatist aspirations seem less likely than ever if there is a shift to the right and the radical right in spain everything is going to be more difficult because these parties in the right have the explicit proposal of imposing self direct rule on that alone yet again so it's not going to be only a matter off of the in the pens project but they're very. very core of their self government on the old don i mean that was recovered during their off of the market and so perhaps inevitably there's a quiet shift towards
11:25 am
a more pragmatic approach is this it is hard to see the republican unless the main political party of the roughly fifty percent of catalonia since support independence some of its leaders you can see are in prison addressing the crowd here by live video link the message increasingly is that unilateral action didn't work the way forward now is through does long and political legitimacy. that means winning as many seats as possible in the national parliament and influencing change from within the dream of independence isn't getting any closer but it does remain very much alive al-jazeera barcelona. now back to one of our top stories the easter sunday attacks in sri lanka a special mass being held right now at the residence of the archbishop of colombo in memory of the two hundred fifty victims menow fernandez so once again joins us
11:26 am
from there so now this we understand the only mass that's taking place in sri lanka today because all the others have been cancelled over security concerns. that's the reports we have yesterday when we spoke to representatives of the church here in sri lanka they did say that requests gone out to all the diocese throughout the country obviously in consulting with the vatican given the ongoing security alerts the gatherings and what was seen in that easter sunday carnage basically the church in the leadership is taking a decision not to have sunday services behind me the samantha needs church one of the explosions ripped through the building behind me and as you can see a heavy security cordon for a possible remembrance event but at the bomb and the service you see being fed life
11:27 am
from the bishop house is one of the only church services and it's a pointer to the seriousness of the ongoing security alert basically the leadership of the catholic church has chosen to basically turn high-tech and be this sunday mass and there are a number of masses lined up during the day to the believe the catholic worshippers for them to watch essential lead to go through that catholic service in the safety of their homes the archbishop speaking to all jazeera earlier had said that he fails of personal sense of loss because it was such a large member of his community which had lost their lives and yesterday another senior priest that we spoke to did talk about the sort of church under threat alluding to many many years ago during the time when
11:28 am
catholics could not celebrate mass literally hundreds of years ago when there were catholic missionaries and the church was under persecution so the church feeling a sense of of being under threat but rising above it not being bowed by but coming out hard and strengthening and establishing their beliefs. and is reporting to us live from colombo thanks bill. voting getting underway in but with no opposition politicians on the ballot in this west african country they failed to meet the requirements of the field candidates and aborting reports from costello on what people there are making of this. this keep fit group meets regularly. and when they're finished they like to exercise their minds and this election has given them plenty to think about rove is retired he says he'll be
11:29 am
making time on sunday to vote despite the fact that the choice is limited only candidates from two parties both linked to the president. to. believe what they explained to us on t.v. is that one hundred fifty smaller parties came together to make up two parties and we have seen that to be the case i'm not a politician but what we want to speak is whether it's oppositional pro-government parties i don't care i only want peace. jack is about is a traitor and is unlikely to give up his time to visit a polling station he's disappointed with the current situation. we're already in the election period yet in the city it doesn't feel like there's a real campaign going on there's no competition because two parties are fighting for the same cause so ultimately there's no election because there is no competition. from the new electoral code was agreed in the national assembly aimed
11:30 am
at reducing the number of political parties five years ago twenty parties field of candidates but eighty three positions this time only two newly formed parties met all the requirements that both worlds a president who came to power in twenty sixteen as an independent there are around five million registered voters in twenty it's never going to know how many will find out because. the political fight that has overshadowed any faith around real issues making this is that. more about symbolism and substance. despite protests from opposition parties many been in these just want to get on with their lives julian carney has been selling fabrics in the market for forty years under with a government can help you. and the government can't govern and it's said to. have never seen the situation before but we must accept it then it is proud of its
11:31 am
democratic traditions since the transition to multi-party politics in one thousand nine hundred ninety but this election appears to be challenging that with the opposition arguing sunday's vote is not taking place on a level playing field i'm up watching al-jazeera. south africa is marking twenty five years since the end of apartheid on this day in one thousand nine hundred four people of all races were allowed to vote for the first time in the country's history had only tassel reports from johannesburg. marked them uneasy remembers the feeling of euphoria in one thousand nine hundred four when apartheid ended and nelson mandela became the first black president she believed in the white minority rule would mean a better life for the poor black majority after decades of oppression since then she's been waiting for the government to provide her with a decent home and she hasn't managed to find work in years if she was hunter's. opened up my cupboards you see i have nothing no food i have to go outside and
11:32 am
house in order to eat something before going to bid so why should i take my id book and go out there to vote when i'm suffering. in soweto township we meet. he was a member of the football club founded in the one nine hundred eighty s. by nelson mandela's wife winnie a group that was politically active during apartheid twenty five years after the end of racial segregation he says he's angry and disappointed with the african national congress led government. jobs. we are hungary is because of those guys not the. only. thing for the people to protest over poverty poor public services and unemployment happen almost daily these are general election on may eighth and the a.n.c. is facing mounting public anger over its failure to improve the lives of millions of black people. even no real knowledge we have while the success is
11:33 am
not just of challenges. and all over the road to accuse us. but everything must be done within the law the legacy of apartheid where black people were considered inferior to whites and not given the same opportunities is partly why africa remains one of the most equal societies in the world since one thousand nine hundred ninety four more people do have access to clean running water education and healthcare even though many say those services are poor these are some of the houses the bills by the government for the poor are provided for free others are subsidised millions i've been built since one thousand nine hundred ninety four but there are still housing shortages claimed many on corruption and millions of south africans continue to live in abject poverty they won the right to vote twenty five years ago today the struggle is with economic freedom which many say still feels a long way.
