imagining consuming me and product no can stop you breathing within minutes everyone we talked to knows of the danger to users of business comes first however this drug trafficker told us he worried the fentanyl boom could actually damage businesses so in the long term before i think fictional is going to cause a problem because there's so many user deaths there will come a moment when the federal government's going to put more and more brock's on this and it will be a lot tougher to do business. in a lower as police chief says his force is already working with u.s. agencies to do just that on the day of a visit they just made the first fence in the lab taking thousands of pills the chinese government's also acting they've now banned the drug that will make it harder from its can gangsters to get their hands on it but they're notorious for always finding a way. to think that the organized crime groups who are behind all of this will stay with their arms crossed would be very in adequate so we intend to keep on the

the stream is next but boy. today's monday today you might be a little harder than the usual monday because saturn is about to go retrograde saturn is a planet of discipline and structure and everything just go with the grind so rather than focusing on so much the outer authority like your boss writing you to heart you have to listen to your in the forty you get it took in touch with your discipline i'm sam reynolds and astrologer and you are in the street. and i'm really could be listening to my inner authority it's unclear when human
4:22 am
beings started looking up at the stars and planets for guidance solace or comfort perhaps the strategy is as old as humanity itself but something a lot newer the digital age has started a global astrology boom astrologer amber kahn explains more. i think there's a void being laughed at by religious institutions falling apart by lack of faith in pharmacology lack of faith in psychiatry people are looking for a different way to try to understand themselves without going to certain extremes. and astrology comes in on these new technological platforms and fills that meek astrologers and investors are seeing opportunity where the stars in technology align according to one venture capitalist the market is now worth over two billion u.s. dollars and joining me to chat about the stars the planets and the tech behind it all are some of astrology biggest influencers from new york astrologer channing
4:23 am
nicholas and los angeles and david palmer celebrity astrologist also known as the king in new york astrologer stan runnels and in new york lucy dream is a futurist and wonderin thompson welcome to the stream everyone cheny i'd love to start with you how did you get into astrology in the first place. i had a reading when i was twelve years old and the astrologer read not only my chart but my dad's chart and my new step mom and her children's chart and as a young child coming into a new family set up the astrologer was able to facilitate a conversation that really helped me to understand the differences between me and my kind of new family set up between me and my step brother and sister and it really helps me understand that we all work through challenges really differently and all come into whatever groups that ing or life or what have you with our own.
4:24 am
it might tend to go ahead. yet it really spoke to me and everything that the astrologer was saying felt really familiar and in that familiarity i was like what is this how do you do this and she had written a book and so i got that can i've been studying ever since wow from such a young age so we have several people in our community who are interested in this topic but aren't quite sure it's useless i want to read a couple of those tweets this is most our who says just a strategy have any actual impact in our life another person writes and this is he's on he says does astrology really explain user behavior so a couple people with some questions there sam o. pasties over to you how would you answer them. yes absolutely i mean i came to strong logie as a skeptic as it sounds some of these people are and i've had that question many
4:25 am
times i will list the impact of astrology in people's lives one to give them a sense that they're not crazy that some of the feelings and thoughts that they have that someone else can enunciate and clarify them without really knowing anything other than their birth data and i think that speaks to a lot of people and some people need some sense of encouragement to have some sense of timeframe about what's happening in my life i talked about saturn at the start of the show so someone may have walked into the office today and heard like their boss writing them and he like oh ok well maybe you know how can i cope with this and so they looked at the stars they looked in the stroller and get wisdom so you were a skeptic taught take us through your journey how did you become a believer and so i i started off as a disbeliever for religious reasons i was of fundamentalist at the time fundamentalist christian and then i went into academia and i had swung the other way and become more of an atheist and was more so looking at things in terms of
4:26 am
race gender and class and graduate school so i went to an astrologer because a friend wouldn't get off my back about being a scorpio i thought i was a sedentary acim on the quote unquote cusp so i went there just to kind of silencer and just to have fun in the sea with the astrologer was going to say i thought it was going to be a hoot and he had some profound things to say to me specifically said things about my family dynamics that i hadn't told anyone in fact i had just learned recently myself so i was like oh this has to be a trick so i wanted to know what his trick was so i spent ten years studying astrology and thus proving i was a scorpio as well. i don't know as a scorpio here and i love your logic at that santa but as a scorpio here talk to me then about what that means for you. i mean some measure of winning to probe and get to the bottom of the truth and having some way of learning to structure your inner and deep feelings because sometimes you're not always clear riddle's feelings and thoughts come from sometimes feeling some shame
4:27 am
about those thoughts and feeling that you have to shelter yourself so that sometimes with the attachment or the statement about secrecy comes in about scorpio because sometimes we feel like we have to keep things in rather than learning to express them all right so you just see this is frightening to basically that that was that is me it is so nice to have to feel understood and to feel read also but you did you talked a little bit about. coming to this from a religious aspect and it not being something that you thought had value david i know you've spoken a lot about the stigma around a strong and that stigma that an astrologer faces today i want our audience to have a listen then perhaps you can break that down for us yeah well i mean whether you're back into society it's almost like being an astrologer has been axed out and we've been kind of put into our own little weird world and i think that it's very important to utilize you know all the aspects of connecting to what we think of
4:28 am
celebrity and pop culture and bringing these ancient science practices and all this wisdom to the mainstream world that had taken away. well you know there's a stigma whether it's from science institutions or religious but the stigma is actually so powerful because it's embedded in all of our lives astrology our time system the month equals the moon twenty nine day cycle or the menstrual cycle twenty nine point five days there's all these connections in our everyday life that astrology is embedded with and having the stigma around it is why i think so many people are actually turning to astrology because it's almost kind of like we're living in a world where we don't know the meanings of why we have this time system why are we going through these things and it's with that that is actually creating this discourse today i always say to people that like i don't care if you believe quote
4:29 am
unquote astral it's your not i i have no investment in convincing anybody about astrology but i think it's so important is understanding the history of astrology and that the history of astrology is interwoven with the history of medicine of course with the history of astronomy with the history of science and that as david was saying it's almost like it's invisibly embedded into so much of our culture and so much of our western you know at least not even just western but like all kind of modes of thought and so when we look at philosophy and the full of philosophical underpinnings of so many different systems they have astrology interwoven into them and even religious traditions also have astrology woven into them and some kind of fashion because we grew up as human beings looking at and having very deep relationship with nature because we didn't see ourselves separate from it for so
4:30 am
long so as a jew you know like i celebrate the new now and both as a jew and as an astrologer because actually the new moon is actually embedded into both of those systems and they actually came. out of the same quakes and so it's natural that there are so many. places in which they intersect so i want to share with you the view of someone who most likely would agree with everything you just said there is an astrologer based in new york and she sent us a video common you can see her instagram page here though and this is where she does a lot of her interactions with other people her name is in al belgrave and here is what she talks to us about on one level people use astrology to learn more about themselves on a personal level but we can also use astrology to look at the world at large as astrologers we look at global events in environmental opens we look at social
4:31 am
changes and we see these patterns not only in the hearing now but in the past and when we look at the past you know well it's the same if you don't learn from the past you can repeat those seen mistakes in the future and i think that's what people are using astrology for now like a star map how do we solve our using what is available to us which is the heavens the earth and each other. so this is just such a beautiful calm and they're talking about using it as a guide from the past to kind of guide our future but we have this comment here that i want to direct to you this is from want to on twitter who says astrology is a business rather than a science that lets you blame far we haven't for your mistakes doesn't that sound appealing the idea that business is right even if others don't mean not agree with the rest of his comment there were talk to us about what the appeal and why this has become such a big business yeah i mean we've certainly seen an explosion of new products and
4:32 am
services and it goes beyond just sort of astrology in consultation generally products wrapping in the language of astrology and star signs and aligning with crystals and we and also a new audience for this as well so millennial is in gen z's to teenagers really starting to get interested in this stuff and then to me there seems to be a few drivers so one i would align it with the well being movement i call these new make practices or be seen as a way to aid in mental health to sort of sight self diagnose and navigate the world as well as understand yourself and but find a bigger meeting i mean we just pulled out a study this week with the anxiety economy looking at the degree to which this is sort of uncertain time is making people really osc sort of x. the stench of questions. about the planet their lives and so on and i think astrology has a really powerful role to play and couple that you just have all these new services like the king who is super hip and modern and appealing to this group conserving astrology up in a new way supremo you know
4:33 am
a lot of you have please please take that away. i was going to say is that when you look at this whole entire economy with it what it is is the mayans were right two thousand and twelve is the end of the world that we know it and people now after two thousand and twelve are looking at the world and not knowing what's going on and they're having to look at these places because this is what the mayans talked about this is the real astrology going down ancient ancient ancient times and so when you come into this major reset in the calendar system the news covered this for the whole entire year of two thousand and twelve together with the world was going to end the rich huge movies of this you know destruction of the earth the truth is that it was the destruction of this false earth that we did not know much about we were all clumped we were all given the truth of what the ancients were saying so people now have to go look for it it's great in business out because it's being shown the way it is to get it but there is still going to be that ultimate you know jumping off the cliff of the old world in the old understandings and these
4:34 am
old belief systems that have been embedded in holding us back from the truth sounds so i'm wondering what you're thinking because your face looks a little skeptical i want to. be skeptical i mean i want to first of all that just one second because i want to share with you what else is a little bit skeptical before you weigh and so this is a a you to comment we just got from wrist wind that he says confuse humans are miserable and they just want to feel happy and pay for it that's all. i think ok so that in between the dire cynicism and maybe even pessimism of that statement compared to david's enthusiasm i think that might be closer to a truth my thought on this is that we've seen this before in terms of the enthusiasm related to astrology life magazine about twenty years ago had its one of its main stories about astrology rising so we've been here somewhat before now of course is to a large scale because twenty years ago we didn't have the worldwide web so i think
4:35 am
there's going to be a proliferation and it grows but each cycle has that comparably in terms of the excitement and interest in astrology and i've been anticipating this particular generation for about ten years because you're in this once i knew that you were in this was going to go into into aries and then into tourist i anticipated the growth of the your innocent satch generation what does that mean that's a particular group of people born between one thousand and eighty one in one nine hundred eighty eight and so i disappeared is that they would have a stronger interest in astrology so i've been waiting for them and they have a disappointed me i love it waiting for them a millennial. i mean what's been interesting because they are millenia of. well from eighty one and sort of the older millennial is but we've been really interested in how also use platforms of being we imagining what astrology looks likes e.-c.
4:36 am
these amazing illustrations using social media more creatively subject even beyond the making this stuff i guess accessible and as accessible as or on digital platforms as you might consume any other lifestyle content and making it very sort of if if if it's an ancient practice repositioning it i guess in a sort of a useful language that is understandable today experience yeah and there's not a day that this is the answer to having a second. because i had a first time that you know astrology is had a moment like this child has had many many moments over thousands of years there have been times and societies and places and moments where it was really in favor and then it falls out of favor again especially in the western world and in india it's pretty much stayed in favor and stayed with itself in its entirety but this is one moment this is one little peek in many and so it it's not shocking that it came back in favor again given how things proliferate on the internet but it also won't
4:37 am
be shocking when it falls out of favor again which i'm sure that it will i don't know if it will in our lifetime or not but this is the way in which many human over many many times periods have related it so i want to share this for flexion from marie on twitter she says this is a fun coping mechanism for her i credit for helping me keep my head above the water during one of the hardest times of my life i wish people showed more compassion when nancy reagan former first lady used it to cope with the assassination attempt on her husband they were unfair and they were judgment and she goes on to say i found a tumblr blog that focused on the strategy and i found it fascinating and i wasn't using it for predictions for to figure out what life lesson i'm supposed to learn from the difficult experience most people who believe in astrology also believe in free will by the way so this is sam i'll direct this one to you because this idea of using it for these hard moments in life have there been moments where you talk to people and that's exactly why they've turned to astrology right to understand
4:38 am
kind of the significance of a moment of a relationship you know i just had a client a few weeks ago contacted me but willing to understand what was happening or what happened to the relationship and how to move forward and in terms of talking about moving forward it was in so much that the stars have decreed this is your way forward there it's more slowly going to you know of your son. i do years here's some ways in which to think about these planetary significations in order to kind of find a path so i always say that you know people are always concerned about fate i say fate has two arms and one of them is your own in astrology teaches you how to work that other arm. well i'd like to say to the point that i don't think that this is just another rise of astrology and that it will fall again if you take voyager one and voyager two which are two probes sent by nasa in the late seventy's which reached in two thousand and twelve voyager one what we call the helio pause this is
4:39 am
an area between the helio spear we are in a bubble in our solar system human consciousness has reached the edge of our solar system it is at this helio pause entering into interstellar space for the first time as consciousness as we know voyager two reached it twenty eighteen no irony here the peak of two thousand and twelve of astrology the really extreme peak here in twenty eighteen in the media i'm able to go on television now or we're able to do this without being castrated look at i love the comment from the person who put up about nancy reagan with john quigley john quigley was an astrologer and i actually did plant out things for ronald reagan and it was looked at as horrible in the media now today i can go on steve harvey i can go on all these amazing television shows and people are willing to hear it and listen this is not normal this is not just a normal rise this is the real deal and not no no no no why not normal for what time frame you're talking about modern culture i'm talking about. this stretch of.
4:40 am
astrological history and i'm saying that there are times when astrology has been central to civilization this is maybe the beginning of another reoccurrence of that and you're not trying to say that it's not a maybe yes but there have been other moments too like sydney omar was like very close with regis philbin you know and coming on his show in and talking about astrology so there's been times related to the air it is cheney saying where people have been excited i'm not saying that this is this may not have some unique aspects to pray but looking at it in this very cosmic sense that this is going to be like a whole different aspect of consciousness. yeah i'm skeptical ok so we'll see so i'm going to pause that part of the conversation just a little bit because i want to show you this and ask if this is the peak perhaps so this is a headline from box according to amazon's new horoscopes the stars want you to go
4:41 am
shopping prime members get monthly horoscope readings paired with suggestions to spend more money on amazon products and this is what it actually looks like here's that site prime member horoscope this one is for march lucy i want to direct this one to you because healing if that is what you use astrology for shouldn't exclusively belong to the elite but does it. right it's sort of making wellbeing practice i guess a bit more accessible and also normalized so i actually think this is quite a radical move for resale or let's remind ourselves a mainstream retailer like amazon to use astrology is a way to funnel and stimulate commerce when you think it's just not any sort of highly p.c. p.r. worthy novel but but actually when you think about the growing audiences and regard for astrology both for self reflection but also for understanding your day to day activities there is a rationale behind it driving into commerce whether you know you need to look after yourself this week let's practice ok we have these following items or you know just
4:42 am
shown that you you need to feel confident here it is fight fight but this kind of is quite a novel way to an accessible way for people to sort of talk about astrology and we see that in the bigger trend as in becoming more normalized and sort of regard for it becoming much more normalized rather than a sort of rarefied fringe subject and that part of that normalization are the explosion of apps of you can really just go to your phone and yet some of that one on one time that previously may not have before we have this week here from someone who may be not convinced that the absent are the way to go he says i'm a libra but i don't think it works another person writes and this is pseudo science so what would you say to them are you talking about x. or astrology in general astrology in general is what i think these commenters are talking about but i'd love for you to take this in the right of now it's accessible
4:43 am
in everyone's hands it's on everyone's phones. i want people to find a healing system that works for them i don't care if it's astrology or not i know that astrology is having a moment we were here before astrology was proper and will be here after astrology has fallen out of favor again and i just mean like astrologers in general were connected to something that is deep and it's rooted in it it's an entire system of knowledge and you don't become an astrologer at least not when i was coming up you know didn't become an astrologer to make money you became astrologer you became an astrologer because it was a language that spoke to you and you couldn't i couldn't really do anything else that was like the thing i was supposed to do and so again it's not your language if you think it's a pseudo science if you think it you know not doesn't have any value to it great
4:44 am
move on i just really want people to find things that help some process the real challenges of being human being and this in this day and age and always and the problem is of course you know we're all inside of a capitalist system that loves to take advantage of whatever's popular and strip it. and send a lot of meaning and sell it at you know and math ways and that's going to happen inside of a time to start the line of what. i just want to. charitable and i think that's just charitable the sense that that doesn't matter to me but charitable in the sense that. she's being open when to narrow it and challenge those people back and say that we've talked a lot about meaning and people who are really into trying to dub astrology as pseudo scientific and all that here's my my my best to you kick back is like you
4:45 am
know human life is more about meaning there's no reason why we've chosen to call today monday and you wake up in the. we've met and all congregated at a particular time there's no empirical reason why we use a sex adjustable sixty minutes system is only pyrrhic a reason for like how we're all drawn toward amazon in a particular way i mean we haven't figured out all those things out but what we do know is that the brain is hard wired for meaning the story creation and that's what we have we have this beautiful art which is the collaboration between math and reading is perhaps what astrology is and so people talk about i've got a lot of progress i'm going to pause you there i hear what you're saying there but i want to answer this question before we run out of time this is a tweet who says can anyone throw light on your twenty nineteen we're going to style it just point of view so tell me based on your research and your readings give us a forecast for the next few days. ok the next few days you said twenty one thousand ok we're going to see again if you want to use astrology as

civilian rule on saturday the two sides announced the formation of a joint council that would leave the country until national elections can be held so that ends military council spokesman says this question is are going well. we're very close to reaching an overall solution that will make everybody happy. to get the country out of this crisis we're still in negotiations to define powers in specialized roles so they can act as a base for us to define the different levels of representation in the government. political wrangling has begun in spain where the shut socialist party now has the task of trying to form a new government without a majority on sunday the party of the prime minister pedro sanchez won the most seats in parliament but not enough the governor alone building any sort of coalition could take weeks of this question's and could still end in deadlock so again go has more from madrid. a new day for spanish politics but no certainty over what kind of government will come out of sunday's election spaniards may have
4:50 am
turned out in force to vote in one of the most divisive elections but it was the socialists who came out on top but i mean i think it's a good result and honestly i didn't expected i thought the right wing was going to win here and couldn't get them started i think the result will be almost have a stable majority and this can be good. all eyes are now on which direction the socialist leader will take so far they have said they would attempt to form a minority government but it's still early days so what happens next well for a start there are further elections to contest local ones in this country and the european elections that are sanches might be playing his cards close to his chest he wants to try to win against that. there is the option of going into coalition a guaranteed majority could be made by partnering with the center right citizens party but it is an unpopular option for the socialists and their followers joining
4:51 am
with a hard left put their most would avoid that scenario but then they would need to make deals with cattle an independent test another unpopular choice it's really awkward this problem for them they have to do a lot of of the nation to the to their followers to their members the fact of they are that they are negotiating with the caseloads so they will try they will try to avoid violence the socialists may have some time but no one is expecting a quick results from this historic election but it's unclear whether the governing party can overcome the difficulties spain has had problems with coalitions in the past and it's unclear whether the governing party can overcome the difficulties to create a stable and effective government sunny day ago al jazeera madrid. i saw as the official media has released a video that appears to show its leader abu bakr the if confirmed they would be the first public. appearance by the group's leader since two thousand and fourteen he talks about the battle of syria which ended in march and at the end of the video an

5:15 am
a tendency to that feel that there are degrees of being black it's embarrassing like for everybody involved that you should just look at people and go. not so sure about him because he's not black enough. did you finish your degree. and he will grant you the store haven't found like the thing that defines you that's what you do. trying to find that thing and human resources just wasn't it. i think i would just like to be successful. like to reach a stage where we we don't have to worry about that have to st how we can apply this how we're going to pay that what are we going to do about this. or that i want all

5:36 am
and do this like a cult. for most of a cult is if you're in here you're right everybody out day and you're wrong and what is going to keep us together. self preservation if anybody says anything bad about us just band together and see which one. they grew up having that trust that chord has my back that he keys that he knows me

5:49 am
over a transition to civilian rule. confident with that change will be one of the safest airplanes ever to fly after two fatal crashes in the last year boeing's boss remains the term and that the seven three seven max jet will take to the air again and we visit the makeshift out door laboratory in mexico where they're cooking up one of the world's most deadly illegal drugs. in sport totems manager says his team are fulfilling a champions league dream tottenham getting ready to play i.x. in their first semifinal appearance in close to sixty years. talks between sudan's opposition political groups and the ruling military will continue on tuesday after the two sides couldn't agree on details for the transition of power pro-democracy protesters from across the country are gathered
5:50 am
outside the military headquarters in the capital khartoum the military toppled the longtime president of it all bashir three weeks ago or on the pressure to hand over to civilian rule most advanced military council spokesman says this questions are going well. we're very close to reaching an overall solution that will make everybody happy. to get the country out of this crisis we're still in negotiations to define powers and specialized roles so they can act as a base for us to define the different levels of representation in the government let's take a look back now at how events unfolded in sudan nationwide protests broke out in the center over the rising price of bread they quickly turned into anti government the stray sions protesters rallied for sixteen weeks the spite a state of emergency being imposed in february which banned the public gatherings the former president omar al bashir is a thirty year rule came to an end on eight. eleven's when he was over scrolled by
5:51 am
the military but there was stray sions continued when the army assumed power a joint civilian military council was announced on saturday after formal talks between opposition parties and the army it will lead the country until elections are held will have been morgan is following events for us in the capital khartoum so he brought a lot of developments do we know what's come out of the meeting and what we're looking forward to to the talks on tuesday while the spokesman for the military council said he was optimistic and that the talks were fruitful but that was not the tone of the message that was given by the coalition after that first meeting which ended today in the afternoon now the military council says that the coalition the opposition coalition presented to them . basically some kind of a presentation for how the transition period should look like better something they said they were not expecting they were expecting talks about the military count
5:52 am
about the joint civilian military transitional government how it should look like and that they wanted a joint. they wanted to represent they wanted a civilian government with military representation that's something the military council was not happy about they wanted a military transitional government with civilian representation so according to the minute according to the military spokesman it was a fruitful and he said that they will go back to consult with their teams before reconvening back again on monday but that's not the only thing he said he said that they had a deal an agreement on how to remove the army barricades that apparently not what's happened so there will be having more talks and they will be trying to settle their issues but the count of the opposition council is saying that they will not remove the barricades that has been placed in front of the army headquarters where thousands have been protesting. here or more again with the latest from kerr to for the moment thank you. now i saw is official media has released a video that appears to show its leader of a back at
5:53 am
a bike that the if confirmed it would be the first public appearance for the group's leader since two thousand and fourteen and in the video he talks about the battle of berg who's in syria which ended in march at the end of it an ordeal messages added mentioning the attacks in sri lanka al jazeera cannot confirm the authenticity of the video or where it was filmed charles stratford has this update from baghdad. certainly according to isis media when this video proves that al baghdadi is still alive and according to analysts that have seen it shows that he is trying to take credit for various terror attacks that have happened in the middle east and around the world in recent times analysts also saying that it shows he could well be on some sort of recruitment drive he focuses very much on praising eisel fighters that try to defend what was described as the last on klav on the syrian side of the iraqi border eisel being defeated in march and very
5:54 am
interestingly around thirty minutes into the video after it finishes an oreo recording which i saw media wing says is al baghdadi speaking you can hear him taking credit for those attacks as a rickety tax we saw in sri lanka on easter sunday in which two hundred fifty people and hundreds of others two hundred fifty people killed and hundreds of others were injured baghdadi saying that those attacks were in revenge for isis defeat in part a good news let's not forget that i saw once control the territory across iraq and syria roughly the size of jordan it's fair to say that they have suffered a huge territorial defeat in their endeavors in this region but certainly this video you could say shows that the ideological battle being led by this man is very much still on and it is fair to say that analysts
5:55 am
intelligence services and governments around the world will be looking very closely at this video to try and get some sort of idea where baghdadi is because of course the u.s. has. a reward for his capture dead or alive of twenty five million dollars so if indeed. baghdadi as if huge significance considering we haven't seen him now for almost five years. before this let's speak to robert ford who is a former u.s. ambassador to syria he joins us now via skype from grand greenvale in the u.s. state of maine ambassador thank you so much for joining us here on al-jazeera so first of all your reaction from everything that you've seen and what you've heard do you believe that this is authentic do you think that this is really about that. yeah i do the media. channel that isis is distributed this on elf
5:56 am
oregon is one they've used in the past including the horrific murder of the jordanian pilot. this is his second video message in five years the one that we can all remember of course was that sermon at the mosque in mosul back in in two thousand and fourteen or he sort of introduced himself to the world so to speak i guess there is always a security issue with producing this kind of video why do you think he's taking that risk now. well i think he had three big messages the first is that the fight goes on he's seated next to him in a cave forty seven the same kind of rifle that was used in afghanistan against the soviets for example it's not an accident that it's laid right next to him second it's interesting that he looks through dos here is a different parts of the caliphate to show that he's still in charge and
5:57 am
finally in the video he mentions. different battles not only in syrian iraq but also in libya later in the audio portion of course you mentioned sri lanka as your reporter just noted and he also said that he received allegiance from groups in somalia and in mali and that tells us that he is thinking not just of iraq and syria but also of pushing more and more and international agenda and international fight well he is the world's most wanted man just the us is a bounty of twenty five million dollars on his head head if he was captured the how much do you think it would be stabilized you know islamic state and whatever form it may or may not be right now or how much do you think he is just the symbolic figurehead. well i don't think he can exercise careful command and control
5:58 am
when he's having to move around from place to place regularly. and is he irreplaceable probably he could be replaced he could be after all in the end the islam extent is more of an idea it's more of an idiology then about a single individual leader. in the end groups like this. has continued morphed after the death of osama bin ladden but don't one could say that al qaida ended with the death of osama bin laden and i doubt the death of our captor about your daddy would and i says that he does admit in this video i mean it is of knowledge that the feet of the group stronghold in syria and vows a long battle ahead i mean a lot of that comment and of course the dreadful attacks that we've seen in sri lanka in the past eight days how do you see the islamic state morphing in the
5:59 am
months and years to come when i think it's two pronged. first they will fight an insurgency where they have a lot of fighters already still in iraq western and central iraq and there is real fighting there again with isis against iraqi government forces and in syria we see more ambushes assassinations the syrian army has come under attack some of the syrian democratic forces allied with the united states have come under attack so that front as still active diminished diminished but active but more and more i think we will see the islamic state reach out to asia to africa to the south region and libya for example has been mentioned by baghdadi in this video. and to asia where we've had isis activities and attacks in places as far from the
6:00 am
middle east as the philippines and now sri lanka. apart for former us ambassador to syria mr ambassador thank you very much for having joined us thank you. my pleasure. coming up on this news hour from london spain's socialist party begins to form a new government a day after falling short of a majority and the election spot checks and heightened security will look at the new normal in sri lanka following the easter sunday attacks and horseracing returns to the libyan city of benghazi and the will be here with that story and more for. the. political wrangling has begun in spain where the socialist party now has the task of trying to form a new government without a majority on sunday the party of prime minister pedro sanchez one of the most
6:01 am
seats in parliament but not enough the governor alone building any sort of coalition could take weeks of discussions and could even then still end and deadlock so nick a year ago has more now from madrid. a new day for spanish politics but no certainty over what kind of government will come out of sunday's election spaniards may have turned out in force to vote in one of the most divisive elections but it was the socialists who came out on top but i mean i think it's a good result and honestly i didn't expected i thought the right wing was going to win here and couldn't get them started i think the result they almost have a stable majority and this can be good. all eyes are now on which direction the socialist leader pedro sanchez will take so far they have said they would attempt to form a minority government but it's still early days so what happens next well for a start there are further elections to contest local ones in this country and the european elections that are sanches might be playing his cards close to his chest
6:02 am
he wants to try to win against that. there is the option of going into a coalition a guaranteed majority could be made by partnering with the center right citizens party but it is an unpopular option for the socialists and their followers joining with a hard left put their most would avoid that scenario but then they would need to make deals with cattle an independent test another unpopular choice it's really awkward this problematic for them they have to do a lot of of the nation to the to their followers to their members the fact of they are that they are negotiating with the caseloads so they will try they will try to avoid violence the socialists may have some time but no one is expecting a quick results from this historic election but it's unclear whether the governing party can overcome difficulties spain has had problems with coalitions in the past and it's unclear whether the governing party can overcome the difficulties to create a stable and effective government sunny day ago al jazeera madrid or the future of
6:03 am
spain's a semi autonomous catalan region was one of the big issues of the election the pro separatist parties gain just forty percent of the votes there. showing deep divisions over independence remaining has more now from barcelona forward delight on the faces of pro independence supporters in barcelona on sunday night the surge of the far right box party contained and spain socialists possibly needing to look here for help in forming a government in fact the socialist party did rather well in catalonia its support drawn from workers who moved to the region in the sixty's and seventy's living in suburban pockets known as the red belt around barcelona they are part of an older generation of leftwing resistance during the franco era who don't believe that nationalism is the answer to anything in modern day spain get their beer from that that's not bad for the restaurant however it's a backward small thing for all workers creating barriers for business and for us
6:04 am
it's always the workers who suffer a modest business will just go elsewhere. around about it might cooperation between the socialists and moderate separatists at the national level helped bridge divides in catalonia if he received word of why there are those who know a lot within that i don't know what about if none of them are in their positions then they can't reach agreement then we can live together just like we always have at respecting one another in line with the law and the constitution. after the events of october two thousand and seventeen the unilateral referendum and declaration of independence forcefully suppressed by the right wing government in madrid it's easy to forget that catalonia is politically multifaceted clearly there's no question of the independence parties renouncing the goal of independence but is there at least a chance now with better relations with madrid yeah like we're likely to move
6:05 am
towards this here you are no solutions can be yet because the positions are still too far apart to find common ground for an agreement. we're still there's dialogue chemical recission that is simple and would hopefully bring about a common understanding of the sea question in the solution at the long meeting and dialogue that of course there hasn't been for some time exactly and a day like that has been broken for a long time and that has made the situation way worse than it was before there is of course the still potentially explosive issue of jailed pro independence leaders twelve of them on trial in madrid charged with rebellion and sedition their fate could yet reignite separatist passions but for a majority of voters here and across spain there is reason to be happy with the result not quite the victory for the far right that many had feared and spain remains a beacon of social democracy in europe and here in catalonia at least the possibility
6:06 am
of cooperation over confrontation i don't know how al-jazeera barcelona. before this we can speak to say a funny sake said that senior lecturer in european politics at the university of surrey and he joins us over skype from the english town of guilford sir thank you for joining us here on al-jazeera actually that the succession of a potential sort of disunity of spain that was one of the key points for vox the sort of so-called far right party a much pushing the idea of a united spain how big do you think the catalonia issue was for boxes relative but it has to be said success there went from a bit of a non-entity to ten percent in popularity in one year. the sheikh was quite big. we cannot deny the fact that books competed with this platform at hand for further nationalism and also centralization of of of spain's sovereignty
6:07 am
back to madrid it feels that the autonomy of the regions has been extended and this is the kind of platform that it was banking on in order to do raise support and it did as you mentioned it went from a non-entity to ten percent within the course of less than a year. and you know breaking through in the spanish parliament. so we see vox they're in a way achieving success by moving away from a secessionist agenda which is almost the opposite of leggo which is the other sort of far right populist party in italy which actually comes from the idea of wanting to break away the north from the south and i guess this leads me to the question of how much you think that these parties you know call the far right call them populist across europe haven't what hope you think they have of actually forming any kind of coalitions after the european elections well i'm glad you mentioned the
6:08 am
leg because it's one of those far right parties in europe that has transformed itself from a regional park that used to be called the legen nord so really pushing forward for that succession is that and into lego which is a more mainstream far right party arguing for italian sovereignty against immigration and against certain cultural influences and now given the fact that you know there are similarities but also quite wide differences between parties of similar nature across europe we can definitely see them cooperating to a certain degree at least top level as they have announced in light of the european parliament elections in a couple of weeks however some of those divisions are quite deep between those parties in fact some of those parties have trying very hard in the past to revamp themselves to become more mainstream to. the shed that kind of stigma
6:09 am
of neo nazi formations fascist allegations of thirty day an ism and so on and so forth in order to become a lot more mainstream and more embedded within the political spectrum in fact on some occasions like in italy like in austria these parties have formed part of government coalitions so now they've got a chance to move away from being protest parties. to be parties who are responsible for government policy they have not been very successful in implementing a lot of their ideas and perhaps this is good news however we need to see them as unique entities rather than as a stable solid. movement unlike the social democratic parties or or the conservative party because the other the other the social parties and the more conservative parties have formed sizable coalitions of in the european parliament so i would guess that something that probably unites most of these far
6:10 am
right and or populous parties is a very strong anti immigration agenda when it comes to europe but what do you think are the biggest divisions between them that will stop them forming any kind of coalition that would give them real power within the european parliament. those would be for example elements of secessionism across europe so for example i wouldn't ever imagine that the flemish bloc would support a party similarly minded party in france which is all about national sovereignty and centralization so i think that divisions of the regional nature are quite important. but also divisions about the degree of control of immigration as well as the extent of multiculturalism ideas and equality and diversity these are divisions that are quite the and for such as i explained for some of the
6:11 am
parties that have tried really hard to produce a more mainstream more soft. far right image closer to a typical right wing party would have very much very much to say against forming a coalition with parties that have paramilitary divisions that. follow bylane tactics on the story of immigrants and so on theophanous ex at a loss senior lecturer in european politics joining us from gilford sir thank you. now boeing as held its first annual shareholders meeting since two of its aircraft crashed within five months killing nearly three hundred fifty people the meeting started with a minute's silence for the victims of the two seven three seven max eight crashes which happened in indonesia and ethiopian aircraft has been grounded worldwide and
6:12 am
the company has suffered about a billion dollars in lost earnings boeing's chief executive has vowed to regain shareholder and customer trust. what we've seen is we've looked at the m. cas activation this erroneous angle attack information that came into the airplane we've also gone back and taken a look at the design of the m. cast system itself the original design we've confirmed that it was designed per our standards certified per our standards and we're confident in that process so it operated according to those design and surf certification standards so we haven't seen you know a technical slip or gap in terms of the fundamental design and certification of the approach that said we know this is a link in both accidents that we can break that's a software update that we know how to do we own it and we will make that update and this will make the airplane even safer going forward and i'm confident with that change will be one of the safest airplanes ever to fly well joining us now from
6:13 am
washington d.c. is aviation analyst seth kaplan sir thank you so much for joining us so we heard just a little bit of the boeing c.e.o. speaking at that meeting a little earlier what did you make of what he said and this tone i guess because it did sound quite i guess the fi and. it's book for a fifteen or sixteen minutes mostly taking questions but not all that many questions are sort of abruptly left the room with journalists still shouting at him saying you know hundreds of people have died is that enough you're right barbara defiant would would be one word defensive maybe took some responsibility for boeing's actions but sort of when pressed on you know were there flaws in the design of the aircraft he wouldn't really say that there were. i think there are some people in the world who are looking for maybe a bit more contrition on the part of boeing he said look this is a company with
6:14 am
a with a great safety culture and i mean over to decades obviously boeing has got a lot more right than wrong but with what's going on right now i have to think there are some people who who would have perhaps wanted to see a lot more introspection a little bit more of a commitment rather than defending sort of the safety culture of boeing after these two accidents maybe a commitment for a top down review of the company because obviously for all that's gone right something has gone badly wrong well but that this woman broke the c.e.o. said the pilots did not completely follow the procedures the billing had outlined to prevent the kind of malfunction the probably cause that the ethiopian airlines jet crash when actually she open officials said a little earlier this month that they absolutely performed all of boeing's procedures i mean what do you think that this kind of you know the disconnect between what he's saying and what these the open officials are claiming does to boeing's ongoing reputational damage of this. yeah he's trying to walk
6:15 am
a rhetorical line that although there may be elements of it that are true i'm not sure that that's helping boeing just sort of turn the page and say look you know this was largely at least. boeing's fault and and move forward he said during the press conference that look accidents are are rarely caused by just one thing there's always a series of events a confluence of events and if any of those things had gone differently perhaps there would have been a crash look that's true it almost any crash you look at it it's there are a lot of redundancies in place usually something can go wrong whether it's human error or something mechanical something with the weather and still not have a crash and all concern flights were something has gone wrong and the plane hasn't hasn't crashed but but again i think in order to sort of move forward they need to be a bit more unequivocal he needs to be a bit more unequivocal about this being apologized saying look yeah sure there were other mistakes that were made but it was largely

6:27 am
afghan leaders and. they're here to decide what the risks been if it's and parties are should the government get to negotiate with the taliban. but taliban boy we do your consultative peace jirga because you three thousand two hundred you've represented nation and will determine the limited framework for the talks with the tele bomb not more high ranking official sitting here. as gandhi spoke chief executive it looked on but from a giant poster afghanistan second highest ranking official did not a team and saying he didn't think it would be productive former prison hamad karzai and the head of the high peace council also boycotted the event critics say gani is using the jirga to campaign in her presidential elections scheduled for september but there's a wide concern that president is using this for. a tool for his presidential campaign and his speech today. there were subtle messages some quite obvious
6:28 am
he want to he was speaking about the. two thousand and nine he being the president but these people don't care about national politics be here representing the district they're very tribes and religions thirty percent are women all eager to be at the forefront of defining peace in afghanistan. that everyone afghanistan from a young baby to an old piece and this week even if we achieve a little it will still be a lot for us the taliban does not a purse and a statement they said this is assured by the u.s. jeopardizes the peace process and is disrespectful to the history of the very end although the taliban doesn't recognize the afghan government the group who have to negotiate with it once the peace talks proceed and on to the loya jirgah decides. at least thirty one people have been killed in flooding and landslides in the

6:30 am
asked to do if they don't they cases might not be heard in court. police are now standardizing how they get permission to access digital information the rules of disclosure oblige us to understand and look for material and i either undermine our case or support the defense case and sometimes that would involve looking at what's on someone's phone but certainly not in every case is not a blanket request that has to be judged each case on its merits. the move follows the collapse of several rape and sexual assault cases after crucial evidence later emerged texts images and called data a particularly useful one offenses are carried out between people who know each other well you can get the example of a husband and wife where rape can still be committed in a match a relationship understanding what happened at the particular time to pick out where the offense was what the allegation is it is it backed up by evidence and of course
6:31 am
one of the telling factors may be messages that you know exchange afterwards police won't have the powers to seize people's mobile phones will have to ask for consent from victims and from witnesses and the data used needs to be absolutely relevant to the case being dealt with in court but under certain rare circumstances the court may be able to demand information from phones also if police happen to come across any information or details linking to other crimes on people's devices they may be able to retain that information and use it in future investigations civil liberties charity big brother says the move could discourage victims and witnesses from coming forward to tall victims aren't going to want to have to give over huge amounts of information just to pursue a prosecution which by law where there is where there is evidence should be pursued anyway and of course yes people are going to be wary of handing over their entire digital lives not just for investigation by. by the defense team and potentially
6:32 am
you know having their personal lives tried to the courts but also the threat that police. investigate any other crimes they find information police say that accessing people's phones is the only way to deliver justice in the digital age but critics say victims shouldn't have to choose between justice and their privacy the park al-jazeera london. from ones they china is banning all variants of the powerful synthetic drug fentanyl it follows an agreement with the united states which proves that china is the main source of the opioid painkiller blamed for four hundred thousand deaths in the u.s. last year alone but the drug isn't just entering the country directly from china it's also being imported by mexican drug cartels john heilemann was allowed access to a makeshift fenton a laboratory in the state of sinaloa the heartland of the mexican drug trade. three young men out in the woods in sin

6:49 am
a letter to president donald trump. confident with the change to be one of the safest airplanes ever to fly boeing's paul says the seven three seven max jet will take to the air again despite two fatal crashes in the last year plus. i'm going hey reporting from tokyo where japanese are preparing for the first imperial abdication in more than two hundred years. thanks for joining us our top story sudan's main protest group says the country's transitional military council is trying to break up a sit in in the capital khartoum for protesters are demanding an immediate handover to civilian rule the military toppled the longtime president omar al bashir three weeks ago but have been under increasing pressure to give up power well they have been morgan is following events for us in the capital khartoum and the but it's significant because after omar al bashir stepped down the protesters that had been
6:50 am
there demanding for him to go for weeks actually stayed there because they wanted to ensure a peaceful transition of power so how significant do you think it is that the transitional military council is trying to break up the sit in. well it is quite significant but the military council earlier said that what they want to do is try to open the roads that have been blocked and they realize that have been blocked by the protesters to ease the movement and so that trains them can move back on the railways there saying that that has impacted their lives because the trains could not bring in goods to places that it usually goes to due to the roadblocks now they also said that the military council also said babie had agreed with the opposition coalition that those roads will be blocked and that the railways will be blocked and of course they're being blocked by the protesters in front of the army headquarters of tens of thousands who have been there for the past four weeks but then the opposition coalition came out an hour later with
6:51 am
a statement saying that that was not what they agreed upon and that they will not stop or rather break their estate in and open the roads and the railways that have employed by protesters and killed power is handed over to civilian government that has been a point of contention between the military council and the opposition coalition they've already agreed on a joint military civilian transitional council but the composition of that council has been an issue between the two sides that is yet to be resolved the military council wants it to be a military transitional government with civilian representation and the opposition coalition wanted to be a civilian government with military representation so talks are still ongoing between the two sides they are expected to meet again tomorrow but people are saying that they will be staying in front of the army headquarters just like they have been for the past four weeks and till power is handed over to civilian government despite the military saying that it's time to move the barricades and the road blocks so that life resumes normally interesting to see what reaction the reason the coming hours and days is certainly for the protesters themselves to this for the moment taber morgan thank you.
6:52 am
thank. you a seventy attorney general rod rosenstein has resigned rosenstein had appointed special counsel robert muller to investigate links between russia and the trial presidential campaign for more i can add joins us live now from washington d c mike why is he resigned now. well the resignation is not entirely unexpected in his letter of resignation rosenstein says that normally a deputy a.g. last for some two years in his term that period has already gone rosenstein had agreed to stay on to help william barr take over as attorney general as you could say it was a rosenstein who oversaw the mill investigation then attorney general jeff sessions having resigned having recused himself from the investigation much to the anger of
6:53 am
president trump but in his letter rosenstein praises president trump for his personal charm as he puts it as well as for his policy objectives he says in the letter that his resignation will become effective on may the eleventh and more political reaction if any has there been to this resignation. well once again as i said because it had been in the offing for awhile reaction so far has been somewhat muted we are expecting to hear something in the hours ahead particularly from some house democrats who were incensed by several of rosenstein sections in terms of giving some information. to the miller probe over to republican members so certainly there was an anger at that particular issue of successor for rosenstein already established it is jeffrey rosen the deputy secretary of transportation he's already been nominated which just shows how
6:54 am
clearly this had been anticipated the resignation of rosenstein he still of course has got to be confirmed in a senate hearing about also making very clear in his resignation letter rosenstein overseeing the investigation but saying too that his justice department did a lot of other things during the months that he was in office interesting to know too though that in the miller report itself the special counsel makes reference to the number of occasions on which president trump threatened to fire road rosenstein so certainly the relationship between the deputy attorney general and president trump had its ups and downs can i with the latest on that resignation by the deputy attorney general of rosenstein like thank you i saw the official media has released a video that appears to show its leader abu bakar al baghdadi if confirmed it would
6:55 am
be the first public appearance by the group's leader since two thousand and fourteen that he talks about the battle of bugaboos in syria which ended in march and at the end of the video and audio messages added mentioning the attacks in sri lanka al-jazeera cannot confirm the authenticity of the video or where it was filmed char stratford has this update from back that. certainly according to isis media when this video proves that al baghdadi is still alive and according to analysts that have seen it shows that he is trying to take credit for various terror attacks that have happened in the middle east and around the world in recent times analysts also saying that it shows he could well be on some sort of recruitment drive he focuses very much on praising eisel fighters that try to defend what was described as the last on klav on the syrian side of the iraqi border ice of being defeated there in march and very interestingly around thirty
6:56 am
minutes into the video after it finishes an oreo recording which i saw media wing says is al baghdadi speaking you can hear him taking credit for those attacks as a rickety tax we saw in sri lanka on easter sunday in which two hundred fifty people and hundreds of others two hundred fifty people killed and hundreds of others were injured baghdadi saying that those attacks were in revenge for isis defeat in part a good news and let's not forget that i saw once control the territory across iraq and syria roughly the size of jordan it's fair to say that they have suffered a huge territorial defeat in their endeavors in this region but certainly this video you could say shows that the ideological battle being led by this man is very much still on and it is fair to say that analysts
6:57 am
intelligence services and governments around the world will be looking very closely at this video to try and get some sort of idea where baghdadi is because of course the u.s. has. a reward for his capture dead or alive of twenty five million dollars so if indeed it is al baghdadi it is if huge significance considering we haven't seen him now for almost five years. but robert ford is a former u.s. ambassador to syria he says i so will continue to be a threat even a foul but that he is captured well i think he had three big messages the first is that the fight goes on he's seated next to in a cave forty seven the same kind of rifle that was used in afghanistan against the soviets for example it's not an accident but it's laid right next to
6:58 am
a second it's interesting that he looks through dosia is a different parts of the caliphate to show that he's still in charge and finally in the video he mentions. different battles not only in syria iraq but also in libya later in the audio portion of course you mentioned sri lanka and he also said that he received allegiance from groups in somalia and in mali and that tells us that he is thinking not just of iraq and syria but also of pushing more and more and international agenda and international fight. the islam extended as more of an idea that's more of an idiology than about a single individual leader. in the end groups like this. has continued morphed after the death of osama bin ladden but don't one could say
6:59 am
that al qaida ended with the death of osama bin laden and i doubt the death of our captor about your daddy would and isis. boeing is how the its annual shareholders meeting since two of its aircraft crashed within five months killing nearly three hundred fifty people the meeting started with a minute's silence for the victims of the two seven three seven crashes which happened in indonesia and. the aircraft has been grounded worldwide and the company has suffered about a billion dollars in lost earnings boeing's chief executive has vowed to have regain shareholder and customer trust what we've seen is we've looked at that and cas activation this erroneous angle attack information that came into the airplane we've also gone back and taken a look at the design of the m. cast system itself the original design we've confirmed that it was designed per our

7:50 am
to hear but what is the latest that you're hearing near there on this city. well has him we actually went to the states and spoke to the protesters and activists on site and they said that what happened was that the military the military truck came at one of the checkpoints and soldiers got out of the car try to remove one of the barricades and that the protesters stop them and formed a human chain and asked them to put back the road blocks that have been there for the past four weeks now these barricades for the protesters it's very significant that's where most of their checkpoints are and where they make sure that people who enter the site of the sit in are armed so that their movement continues to be peaceful according to what they say so they're saying that they're saying that the army is trying to basically destabilize their sit in and try to force them to break their sit in something they said they're not going to do and less a civilian transitional government is formed so we've seen protesters now stepping
7:51 am
up more barricades have been formed protesters are more people are joining the sit in army headquarters and we're also seeing escalation of protests around her to several neighborhoods have come out their tires being burned in some of the neighborhoods and people are saying that they will make their way to the army headquarters tonight to re in hand or to reinforce the people who are there and try to make sure that the army does not break the city and that has been going on for four weeks now and. this of course comes after you reported earlier the talks between these ongoing talks between the protest leaders and the military and the there were signs of some progress being made. well the as the military spokesman said that he was very optimistic and that talks are going well between the two sides that's not what the opposition coalition said they said that they failed to to have any kind of concrete agreement they did agree on saturday on a joint military civilian agreement transitional council but they still have not
7:52 am
agreed on how that transitional government should look like so the military council said that the opposition coalition presented what is known as the constitutional declaration that will be guiding how the bodies of the of the transitional government would look like and what will be decided that the relationship between the military council and the opposition coalition and the transitional government now the relationship is something that is very hard to determine that that's why there's been talks between the two sides the military council once in a military transitional government with civilian representation and they want to have the sovereign authority which means they get to decide the laws and rules of the country for the transitional period while the opposition coalition want a civilian government that is independent from the council so they're hoping that the constitutional declaration which they will be presenting to the coalition tomorrow will decide the relationship between the two sides and how the transitional government should look like but that doesn't answer the question of how much progress representation the two sides should have during the transition period and it doesn't seem like sudan is any closer to forming
7:53 am
a transitional government today than it was when president bashir was ousted. thank you here morgan live for us there in hard to well let's speak now to holder who is one of the was one of the protesters there she joins us on the phone now from hard to thank you for being with us i want to ask you what what happened here from from what you saw. how are. you up on the political process for the. reply. right move actually more people. now to provide more support and to make sure that this is the boy who loses all doesn't say immigration has a reason that has it i put others by the fossils even.

al baghdadi speaking you can hear him taking credit for those attacks as a rickety tax we saw in sri lanka on easter sunday in which two hundred fifty people and hundreds of others two hundred fifty people killed and hundreds of others were injured baghdadi saying that those attacks were in revenge for isis defeats in about a good news and let's not forget that i saw once control the territory across iraq and syria roughly the size of jordan it's fair to say that they have suffered a huge territorial defeat in their endeavors in this region but certainly this video you could say shows that the ideological battle being led by this man is very much still on and it is fair to say that analysts intelligence services and governments around the world will be looking very closely
7:57 am
at this video to try and get some sort of idea where baghdadi is because of course the u.s. has. a reward for his capture dead or alive of twenty five million dollars so if indeed it is al baghdadi it is if huge significance considering we haven't seen him now for almost five years. oh mick bednarek joins us live now from washington to talk more about this he is a former us senior defense official in iraq thanks very much for being with us. good to be here thanks i want to ask you first of all what do you make of this video and what clues. can be gleaned from it. well first off i agree heartily with the last colleague on his his perspective. baghdadi i've been asked many times already
7:58 am
today since the emergence of this video do i think it is authentic certainly international intelligence agencies and our own intelligence capability here in the united states looking at this very very closely clearly there is a lot to be said that this is an authentic video. and the likeness since july twenty fourth teen in the mosque in moe's or where he took the pulpit if you will and proclaimed his self-appointed caliphate at that time i would highlight that in dieties case in this video assuming it is authentic he is obviously certain terry must have gained at least forty to fifty pounds which means he of the injuries sustained in either prior attacks air strikes or others he has not done heck of a lot since that and certainly over the past several years and why now what should
7:59 am
we read into that the timing of this video because it's i mean does this seem designed to you to kind of acknowledge that isis has lost some much territory but also to kind of demonstrate that that he is still out there he's still alive. i agree it's clearly directly tied to recruiting but also not only the recruiting of future islamic state members but more specifically on financing let's be honest it needs requires a hell of a lot of money to sustain this effort but the bottom line up front is he is he's a loser he lost his final stand of the of the territory in the self-proclaimed caliphate there and bugaboos has been mentioned before on this broadcast so his house of cards is crumbling in this self
8:00 am
generated game of solitaire that he's playing to try to hold on to this ideological ruse over what sort of how much control does he actually have. as a group i mean you did you call him a loser is he a loser within that within the leadership as well does he have any any influence. well let's let's face it as a last colleague highlighted he used to control wide swaths of terrain both in iraq when i was there and also in syria the size at least of which the size of jordan tens of thousands of members vast majority of that all of the terrain is gone vast majority is members killed wounded or have left because they have seen the. scene the ruse that he tried to highlight to all of his all of his members but to
8:01 am
be honest there are certainly remains a threat there will be a threat you cannot you can take away the land but the ideology will remain and that is our concern as we look to sleeper cells not only across the west but other soft targets as we saw unfortunately in the horrific attacks on easter sunday there in sri lanka make good to talk to. plenty more ahead on this news hour libya's tripoli based government calls in reinforcements says walter khalifa haftar boxes on the kept. pushing for peace afghanistan's president hosting a rare meeting of leaders to talk about ongoing efforts for talks with the taliban . and the team that's back in the big time of european football after a fifty seven year wait and the year with more.
8:02 am
color still ahead but first u.s. president donald trump's deputy attorney general rod rosenstein has resigned he had appointed the special counsel robert miller to investigate links between russia and the trump presidential campaign he sent his resignation letter to trump and will leave his post by may eleventh mike hanna joins us from washington with more on this so mike not a complete surprise this is it. no indeed not to rosenstein had made very clear that he would stay on to help william throughout the process of issuing the miller report now that the report has been released the resignation as expected has been handed down president trump has already nominated his replacement jeffrey rosen a deputy secretary in the department of transportation still to face a confirmation hearing in senate but one must remember too that rosenstein was the
8:03 am
man who wrote the memorandum which accused james comey the f.b.i. director of wrongdoing in terms of the hillary clinton computer files this was used as public justification by president trump to fire james komi leading to the entire special counsel situation rosenstein has been basically heading up that investigation given that the then attorney general jeff sessions riku stem cell from that ongoing investigation by the special counsel and it's been a it's been a tumultuous two years for rosenstein hasn't it how are democrats going to take this particularly after. when when the attorney general barr announced the release of the reports and he he took a lot of criticism for the way he colored that report and rosenstein was there standing by him and pretty much backing up his version of it. indeed
8:04 am
yes by his presence at the statements by william bar on the release of the miller report rosenstein associated himself with what many democratic leaders believed was an unfair reflection off the miller report remembering that nobody had read it at that particular point apart from bar and his immediate staff so certainly rosenstein is associated with that congress some democrats as well were angular to him by what they saw as his unfettered release of some of the contents of the investigation to republicans and certainly he was seen by others though as a bulwark against president trumps attempt to interfere with the investigation some do believe that he actively prevented the president from going ahead in carrying out his threat to fire robert muller which he did make on a number of occasions but still rosenstein himself is mentioned number of times in
8:05 am
the miller report as part of that investigation into obstruction of justice against president trump in that president trump is quoted in the miller report as threatening to fire rosenstein on a number of occasions so certainly it has been the tomatoes two years as he puts it is relationship with president trump has very much been up and down however in his resignation letter rosenstein makes very clear his admiration for president trump praising his personal charm and his policy objectives so certainly he seems intent on leaving office not burning any bridges as he goes. all right mike hanna live for us there in washington thanks mike. albine has held its first annual shareholders meeting since two of its seven three seven max aircraft crashed within five months killing nearly three hundred fifty people the company says the updated model which
8:06 am
it hopes to recertify in the next month will be one of the safest planes ever to fly john hendren reports after two fatal crashes boeing is embattled chief executive is focused on correcting the company's trajectory at the first shareholder meeting since those ill fated flights dennis miller lindbergh offered the latest in a series of apologies all of us at boeing are deeply sorry for the loss of life and we feel the immense gravity of these events and we recognize the devastation to the families and friends of the loved one loved ones who have perished boeing is struggling to recover its reputation for safety after two of the company's best selling new seven thirty seven max planes went down killing three hundred forty six people that know that has led to some critical questions. have you considered resigning. the company says the grounding of that model will cost boeing one billion dollars this year and that doesn't include the nearly three dozen lawsuits
8:07 am
from lion air and the families of those who were killed. what compels boeing's problems is the fact that an alert that might have helped avoid those two crashes was not activated in those two planes the alert would tell the pilot if two different sensors disagree about the plane's so-called angle of attack that was considered optional and was not activated in those two planes boeing says it will be considered standard equipment and activated in all future seven thirty seven max planes boeing hopes to have the seven thirty seven max ri approved by the us federal aviation administration by late may many carriers including southwest an american airlines have postponed all flights to mid august on what was boeing's best selling jet that leaves passengers to rearrange trips during the busy summer travel season in terms of the ability of the company to weather the storm i don't really think that's in question this might cost billions of dollars but at the end of the day the company had a profit of about ten billion last year they'll be able to survive just fine
8:08 am
shareholders meeting near the company's headquarters in chicago might be ready to move on but the open question is whether passengers will be willing to climb back on a plane with such a troubled history john hendren al-jazeera chicago. bailey is an aviation analyst and former federal aviation administration safety team represented he joins us now from butler new jersey thanks for being with us. so i want to ask you first of all then about the remarks from that from the c.e.o. dennis miller he says that there is a public trust deficit dad that that boeing is a is working towards getting back to he succeed in doing that. you know i don't think so i don't think he did today you know he pretty much came a little bit short of suggesting a design flaw or possibly admitting to a design flaw on the aircraft but he did take some responsibility but i think he's
8:09 am
going to really have to step up to the plate and you know be honest with both the investors and especially the the general flying public. you know a lot of people say you know the buck stops with with the man at the top so if boeing is going to to really move on from they stuff doesn't need to let him go and just kind of start afresh you know dennis miller emberg has a long history with boeing you pretty much worked his way up through the ranks so he knows that business very well and you know i think he is a very good man for the job but again that with the public perception problem that's a whole whole other story i think it's pretty much the problem is with the airplane and rebranding that plane because that seven thirty seven max is going to be ingrained in every passenger's mind probably for the next two decades so you know my gut feeling is that the airplane will have to be rebranded and you know i truly
8:10 am
believe the c.e.o. probably should stay based on his experience bunning though is facing problems on one on a number of fronts is that it isn't just. you know relatives of the people who died and shareholders it's this report from the american airlines pilots saying that their proposed pilot training for the for the the max that they knew automation for the max isn't good enough there's another published report that says investigators are looking at lead to safety allegations made by a dozen whistle blowers said that he's got quite a lot to deal with he hasn't. yes he does and keep in mind that you know even with the whistle blowers we're talking about a dozen whistleblowers out of about one hundred fifty three thousand employees so it seems like everybody now is coming out of the cracks for lack of a better term. to bring up complaints about boeing but i think the main focus has to be on the airplane and proving you know their testing at the retesting it they
8:11 am
have to assure the flying public that this airplane is safe to fly the bottom line is it doesn't matter who the c.e.o. is the fact is that the general flying public not the experts have to be one hundred percent convinced that this airplane is fixed and that boeing is making excellent airplanes as they always did prior to the seven thirty seven max appreciate your perspective on this so. thanks very much good evening. all right more now on the developments out of spain it's one day since the socialist parties victory in those elections and now comes the job of forming a government has been following developments for us from madrid. now the elections
8:12 am
are over of course the bursa now comes upon the socialist try and formulate a way of governing they say they want to go in with a minority government they may have to consider going into coalition with various political parties nominally but one of the center right citizens party or perhaps a coalition of the hard left and regional parties that's right bit tricky for them because there will be some road well in exchange for this and that may not necessarily be the most popular option however one of the socialist ministers him out on monday saying that they needed to have dialogue seeing as the former policy the policies of the former government didn't seem to work before and only increase the hostility between madrid and barcelona however also there is that presence of the far right vox party now in government they only have twenty four seats out of three hundred fifty however they could be big disruptors and could drive debates
8:13 am
along issues of national unity and regional powers and the future of spain's semi autonomous catalan region was one of the big issues of the election but approach separatist parties gained just forty percent of the votes there showing deep divisions over independence remain john a hole has. anything to thank you delight on the faces of pro independence supporters in barcelona on sunday night. the far right party tamed and sprayed socialist possibly needing to look here for help in forming a government in fact the socialist party did rather well in catalonia its support drawn from workers who moved to the region in the sixty's and seventy's living in. in suburban pockets known as the red belt around barcelona they're part of an older generation of left wing resistance during the franco era who don't believe that nationalism is the answer to anything in modern day spain get their beer from that
8:14 am
that's not bad but rather about how it's a backwards moral thing for all workers and barriers for business and for us it's always the workers which are for a modest business will just go elsewhere. about it might cooperation between the socialists and moderate separatists national level help bridge divides in catalonia is. why there was a lot of within that i don't know what are the if none of them are in their positions then they can't reach agreement then we can live together just like we always have at respecting one another in line with the law and the constitution. after the events of october two thousand and seventeen the unilateral referendum and declaration of independence forcefully suppressed by the right wing government in madrid it's easy to forget that catalonia is politically faceted clearly there's no question of the independent parties renouncing the goal of independence but is
8:15 am
there at least a chance now with better relations with madrid yeah like we're likely to move towards this you know you are no solutions can be yet because the positions are still too far apart to find common ground for an increment we're still there is a low clinical recession that it's in play would hopefully bring about it come on understanding up to see question in the solution at the dial of that of course there hasn't been for sometime exactly and a day like that has been broken for a long time and that has made the situation the way worse than it was because there is of course the still potentially explosive issue of jailed probably independence leaders twelve of them on trial in madrid charged with rebellion and sedition their fate. yet reignite separatist passions for a majority of voters here and across spain there is reason to be happy with the result not quite the victory for the far right that many had feared and spain remains a beacon of social democracy in europe and here in catalonia at least the possibility
8:16 am

8:50 am
spoke to protesters there including the people who guard the border the checkpoints and the barricades and they said that what happened was that a military truck carrying soldiers came to one of the checkpoints and try to move the barricades and that the protesters stopped them from doing that and forced them to put back the steel rods that form part of the barricade now this all started because the military council has issued an issued a warning that they will remove any blockade in any barricade from the main roads to try to make sure life to make sure to make life in the hearts and resume back normally initially said that there was an agreement between the opposition coalition and the military council that most of the roads and the real ways that are blocked by protesters who are sitting in front of the army headquarters will be opened now the opposition coalition said that is not true there is no agreement and it has called on protesters to continue with their sets in and to not open any roads and till there is a civilian government in place protesters have been in front of them headquarters
8:51 am
for four weeks now and they're waiting for the transitional government to be formed a civilian transitional government not one that is run by the military. and of course this this all happened after the latest talks between military leaders and the protest leaders and different versions of the success of those talks. yes indeed the spokesman for the military council came out and said he was very optimistic and that talks went well but that was not the statement that came from the sudanese professional association and the opposition coalition they said that they were not able to reach a deal on saturday they had agreed on a joint military civilian transitional government but how that government should look like is something that the two sides could not agree upon and the military council wanted to be a military transitional government with civilian representation and the coalition wants it to be a civilian government with military representation each have offered different numbers in terms of upper representation so the two sides have not yet agreed on
8:52 am
how that government should look like they did say they agreed on the constitutional declaration something they said will be a guideline for how the two sides would deal with each other how the military council will deal with the transitional government and the rules and functions of not just the transitional government but a legislative assembly but still has in the two sides are not closer to forming a transitional government than there warren president bashir was ousted three weeks ago thank you here morgan in hard to there's been heavy fighting in southern tripoli as forces loyal to walter after to keep up their attack on the libyan capital have thoughts fighters have advanced and taken control of areas near the international airport the tripoli based government recognized by the united nations says it is bringing in reinforcements to repel the attack would have to go ahead has more from tripoli. forces loyal to the lord have to have advanced towards. neighborhood that's about fifteen kilometers away from tripoli city

center and eyewitnesses in al sadr and locals there say that they have seen have to his forces engaging against the forces loyal to the you and the recognized government of national accord in the streets and inside the densely populated areas namely in a neighborhood on the southern part of the libyan capital we know that during the past two weeks have to his forces have been losing ground and the government of national called forces have been pushing have to the forces back beyond tripoli in active international airport have his forces after the last ground the intensified air strikes specially night air strikes this situation remains very tense especially for civilians living in the nearby fighting areas and the government forces say that they are receiving more troops to push have to his forces back to
8:54 am
the old locations they also say that the are able to push have to his forces back beyond their administrative borders of the capital tripoli. turkey's president is backing libya's u.n. recognized government in its fight against after a wretched time and calling his advance on tripoli a plot against the libyan people according to the world health organization the battle for tripoli has killed at least three hundred forty five people including twenty two civilians. has been a surge in cholera cases in war torn yemen this year the un has asked for four billion dollars in emergency aid but only a small portion of it's been received to countries fighting in yemen civil war alongside the government have also pledged funds but saudi arabia and the u.a.e. have delivered partially our diplomatic editor james bass reports. yemen remains the most difficult humanitarian situation on earth and things are getting worse not
8:55 am
better cholera cases are on the rise this year so far about a quarter of a million new cases more than double the number in the same period of twenty eighteen and despite the un's repeated calls for funding only a small proportion of the four billion dollars for urgent humanitarian aid has been received in previous years the top donors have been the two main members of the coalition that continues to bomb the controlled areas saudi arabia and the united arab emirates they have both pledged money again but this time they're not giving it all at once instead they're paying in installments effectively drip feeding their funds in the past they've given you big upfront payments my understanding now is they're giving you money but in smaller amount well the king of saudi arabia and me. have pledged between one point five billion dollars for us for this year
8:56 am
and my message to them and everyone else is it would be really helpful if money could be paid as soon as possible and that's all he wanted to say this remains an extremely sensitive issue for the u.n. of course yemen's humanitarian crisis won't be solved until there's a political agreement a shaky cease fire holds in the key port city where data but a deal done at the end of last year to reposition forces there has still not come into effect and the wider political settlement seems a long way off james out of the united nations. the suspected leader of eyesores appeared in a video for the first time in five years in it. he talks about the battle of but who's in syria which ended in march at the end in order messages added mentioning the attacks in sri lanka cannot confirm the authenticity of the video or where it
8:57 am
was filmed char strafford has more from. certainly according to isis media when this video proves that al baghdadi is still alive and according to analysts that have seen it shows that he is trying to take credit for various terror attacks that have happened in the middle east and around the world in recent times analysts also saying that it shows he could well be on some sort of recruitment drive he focuses very much on praising onshore fighters that try to defend what was described as the last on klav on the syrian side of the iraqi border eisel being defeated in march and very interestingly around thirty minutes into the video after it finishes an oreo recording which i saw media wing says is al baghdadi speaking you can hear him taking credit for those attacks as a rickety tax we saw in sri lanka on easter sunday in which two hundred fifty
8:58 am
people and hundreds of others two hundred fifty people killed and hundreds of others were injured baghdadi saying that those attacks were in revenge for isis defeats in part a good news and let's not forget that i saw once control the territory across iraq and syria roughly the size of jordan it's fair to say that they have suffered a huge territorial defeat in their endeavors in this region but certainly this video you could say shows that the ideological battle being led by this man is very much still on and it is fair to say that analysts intelligence services and governments around the world will be looking very closely at this video to try and get some sort of idea where baghdadi is because of course the u.s. has. a reward for his capture dead or alive of twenty five million
8:59 am
dollars so if you do. huge significance considering we haven't seen them there for almost five years. celebrations are over now the hard work begins for spain's socialist party that won the election but lacks the votes to govern on its own the party of prime minister pedro sanchez will need to build a coalition but one of the could take but that could take weeks and there's no guarantee of success on the day that has more from madrid. now that the elections are over of course the bursa now comes upon the socialist try and formulate a way of governing they say they want to go in with a minority government they may have to consider going into coalition with various political parties nominally one of the center right citizens party or perhaps a coalition of hard left and regional parties that's right the bit tricky for them
9:00 am
because there will be some pro quo in exchange for this and that may not necessarily be the most popular option however one of the socialist ministers him out on monday saying that they needed to have dialogue seeing as the form of policy the policies of the former government didn't seem to work before and only increase the hostility between madrid and barcelona however also there is that presence of the far right vox party now in government they only have twenty four seats out of three hundred fifty however they could be big disruptors and could drive debates along issues of national unity and regional powers still ahead on the spot checks and heightened security look at the new normal in sri lanka following the easter sunday attacks last. confident with the change will be one of the safest airplanes ever to fly bys boss issues investors after major airlines ground seven three seven seven three seven max following two crashes within months.

9:21 am
it's a pressure iran has made before but this time the stakes are higher for the u.s. strangling iran's oil exports teheran threatening to shut off the strait of hormuz one of the world's most important shipping lanes but one of the consequences not just for iran but the region and the global oil markets this is inside story.
9:22 am
hello and welcome to inside story i'm kemal santa maria when you think of important waterways in the world you probably think of places like the sewers or the panama canal is vital manmade shipping lanes which transformed global trade but perhaps just as important is the strait of hormuz a choke point as it's known through which twenty percent of the world's oil is carried by tank is now the united states decision to impose further economic sanctions on iran has prompted threats from teheran to close this strategic waterway in today's washington will end all the waivers granted to eight countries including the likes of china and india that import iranian oil the u.s. government says it's part of its maximum pressure campaign to stop iran from destabilizing the region so how iran's top general has responded he said we don't want to close the strait of hormuz but if the hostility of enemies increases we will be able to do so also if our oil does not go through the strait other
9:23 am
countries oil will certainly not cross the strait either. so let's have a look at the significance of the strait in some detail because while iran presents itself as a gatekeeper if you like there are a lot more players involved the strait of hormuz is the only sea route in and out of the gulf that tells you immediately why it is so important and if we zoom in down there and actually place a a ruler over the top of it using the tip of the united arab emirates as a starting point you'll see that in any direction it's certainly nothing more than one hundred kilometers before you hit land be at the iranian mainland there or one of these islands over here now in this case fifty six kilometers of water sounds like a decent amount of space but the actual shipping lanes are only three kilometers wide in each direction and it was in the first half of twenty eighteen in fact that seventeen point four million barrels of oil a day went through those lanes around a fifth of the world's oil consumption coming from places like iran obviously but up here in iraq and in kuwait as well further down you've got cutter of course
9:24 am
which is the largest exporter of l.n.g. liquefied natural gas in the world its exporters have to go through the straits as well you go down into the united arab emirates into dubai and here you've got general alley the largest port in the middle east which handles up to nineteen and a half million shipping containers a year they all go through the strait of hormuz and don't forget as well if we come further west again based here in bahrain in this little bay here you've got the u.s. fifth fleet america's naval presence in the gulf which can be deployed in the case of any heightened tensions. so let's introduce our panel today starting in tehran with mohamed islamiyah who is a political research or and columnist in london minissha tacky and independent oil and energy consultant and on skype from lancaster in the u.k. it is simon mobile and senior lecturer in international studies at and i guess the
9:25 am
university gentleman thank you time welcome to inside story mohammed islam i'm going to start with you and tell her. and i do want to start out by pointing out that this is not a new threat iran has made the threat before most notably i think it was two thousand and eight and two thousand and twelve as well in your view what is different this time what makes it more crucial more important or as i said at the start of the show the stakes being higher look at first i want to mention there it is not only in politics where it is also an experience for iran because the iranian government has the experience of putting some restriction on controlling to a certain form is doing to iran iraq war in one thousand nine hundred s. so this time by as the as a consequence of u.s. policy and quitting. iranian government is thinking about this decision as a means of. i mean. i think sending
9:26 am
the message to it it to the united states that this is this time it would be really different for rangers but it's a provocative move in it and a retaliatory move as well i wonder about what it really achieves other than showing iran's strength and iran's importance in the region what does it really achieve no one no one really wins out of it not in the region they don't. ok you know it would not be for sure it would not be the first is that by the iranian government it would be the second step step after. step by the united states if the united states could not achieve their goal through. put iranian export through zero day rain and would not close the door close the gateway but if they are really serious and putting restrictions on iranian export
9:27 am
it would be the next step the second a step four innings so the u.n. is not want to close the gate. ok son and move on that's bring you into the conversation now first of all your thoughts on whether this actually could happen this time as we've discussed already it's happened before it's been threatened in more recent history this time around look i think that if we look over over history recent history and less recent history we know that iran does this when it feels like it's being backed into a corner when it feels like it has very little other alternatives as a means of articulating its position as a show of strength so given that and looking at history it seems unlikely that iran would do that this time but of course we can never say never we've got an increasingly billet you into an increasingly and to raney and president and the white house and that has had an impact i think it has pushed iran to the margins it has pushed iran from from the center of regional politics and it's created
9:28 am
a sort of isolationist sentiment so things have changed the context has changed but i think that the outcome of whether iran will close the straits i can't see it happening to be honest but that doesn't rule it out just on a. sort of a mechanic side of things and maybe i might have to ask one of our other guests as well but have we we keep using this phrase iran would close the strait of hormuz how do you close the strait of hormuz out here. that. there's a number of different ways and and i think it depends on how seriously the iranians wanted to close it and the most obvious is perhaps mining the strait putting putting seaborne mines that would obviously have a pretty damaging impact if any of the large freight says were to were to hit it less obvious perhaps would be to have boats patrolling the strait potentially shooting shooting some type of torpedo or weaponry at these freighters if iran was
9:29 am
serious about closing at now there's a deterrent dimension i guess to to any closure efforts the language is a deterrent but then if iran was to actually go ahead and close it you have different different type policies of closure i guess depending on how serious around was and depending on what iran wants it to achieve from disclosure just before i bring in minissha talking just stay there for me a minute i just want to ask mohamed in tehran quickly your thoughts quickly on on how you think iran would actually annex this if it did. you know for ron it is not required to close all the gateway as i mentioned when we see the experience of iran during the iran or war they didn't close the oldest strait of hormuz because they put some restrictions for the tankers to carquest a strait so i don't think that iran would have any plan to close the gateway in a moment's no because you know after all iran would think about their plan to
9:30 am
reopen the straight so. if iran would be in a point to really put restrictions on display to foremost to the will not to close it at in a moments when we should talk in london as our oil expert let's bring him in this is central obviously the effect on the oil markets. already there are a number of countries who will stop receiving iranian oil the united states says it will be fine will keep the market supplied they'll be no gap do you agree with that or is that just the almost the symbolic nature of something like this potentially happening which is enough to spook the markets. well the united states is playing the bully is this the pseudo only superpower in the world so it can say and do at least things present from what he can do he says whatever but in practice iranian oil exports have not seen as in the past in two thousand and eight and twelve and
9:31 am
so on prison ahmadinejad at that time there were sanctions by the europeans and the united nations as well as the united states and iran managed to export its oil about a million and million and a half for ways and means so it would be the same thing this time plus the fact that the europeans have not put sanctions on iran mind you with their oil companies you are going to oil companies again because of this strong arm twisting by you know at the states there are a reader free to purchase iranian oil although their governments told and european government tell them go ahead and do but they are afraid because united states might put. pressure on them or would not allow him to stop their operations in the united states and so on and it's really not going to fix they don't want it isn't that a deal but i don't think it will sort of yes go ahead as it was yet isn't that the difference in some that the u.s.
9:32 am
is undeniably putting more pressure on on the oil markets on the oil exports and sort of does that there's a threat in the background as well that oh well we'll see what happens here and we might have to do more and who knows what more is after that but really it is this is a political question that the world and the european union which is telling its oil companies go ahead and do not listen to the united states threaten threats because you are doing illegal trade buying oil from iran but they are afraid of doing it it depends on how far this political pressure from the u.s. and there is distance in europe would go and then we should also be realistic that . other countries india china and others who do import iranian oil south korea are very much and they would observe the united states pressure much more lenient deal more quickly and but one would think that maybe china and india and others
9:33 am
might resist and their existence would depend on other trades that they are having with iran and the negotiations that they have all the time now in the united states and chinese international trade negotiation they might use it on as a point given take so be all given that this is all political question on that and i'm no expert on politics but i think that these countries will come out of their way as they are doing behind the scenes diplomatically and protesting they are protesting to the united states to india and that look we have these refineries the we need oil and we have had our refineries designed for iranian crude in madras refinery here and there for decades now you want us to change it will be costly for us etc etc it is that political pressure that they want to stand against a us many germans on this issue which i'm no expert but i think they will go out and start protesting and may want to listen just condi and quiet the the chinese on
9:34 am
one side as well. and that is see you know the president wants to have the price of oil to be cheap yeah because the petrol and gasoline in the united states the beach is sort of that is he would be remain popular yet of course if the price goes up internationally there in the midst of prices would also go up it is his doing he says that i'm telling opec to produce more and i'm not sure that in spite of the strong arm and the good relations between saudi bia and the united states there saudi arabia would close and in a distant images that you see in the you know i'm going to jump in martin i'd jump in because i want to. ringin simon at this point because as you pointed out i mean you're our oil expert simon is our international relations expert maybe you can expand a bit more what men are saying there because they made a really good point that this goes well beyond the region all those countries are listed earlier on and kuwait and qatar and all of this it all those customers which
9:35 am
iran had how do you feel they will react when i stand up for iran with they insert themselves into this what is essentially a us iran battle but i think what we've got to do is contextualize each and every one of these relationships so not only do we need to look at the relationship that iran has with india with russia with turkey with china with south korea etc but we also have to look at those relationships with the united states so india's relationship with the u.s. china's relationship etc and it's those relationships the nature of those relationships and the quality of them the strength of them if you will that will determine the extent to which those states will push back against any u.s. efforts to to try and create a position visa via and so if there is some type of friction enough in that relationship say the the indian position modi's position with regard to the u.s.
9:36 am
isn't quite honest aim pages trump that it could well be that india pushes back and says no we will not do this we want to we want to continue with our infrastructural developments built around iranian oil and we don't want to be pushed around by the u.s. and that's the same with all the other holy of the states that iran is trading with they all have their own relationships not only with iran but with the u.s. and other states as well so we need to look at this need to contextualize each of these relationships and by doing that with better able to see the extent to which those states might push back against the u.s. because it's really complex isn't it i want to bring things back to iran a little bit let's do this with mohammed in teheran i want to get if. feel for view of the iranian people what they think about all of this because we characterize it as a battle between two governments but in the end it would be the iranian people who would feel the effects now let's play this out here let's say that iran takes some sort of action it retaliates it closes the straits of hormuz tell us about the
9:37 am
effect on iran the iranian people the iranian economy ok first of all let me say something else for iranian minds it's closing to sort of hormones it is not an instrument in terms of economy or whole theory it is a reaction to a kind of community of where it's by some powers in the region well really lecturing to b.b. i mean do you really think it's in your home or in israel and. amount of support from donald trump for netanyahu and also some signs in saudi arabia iranian government. talking about closing this sort of hormones may be a response to some sorry rows of targeting iran attacking iran. by by some people by some garment into a region with the sport of the united states so for the iranian people it's also
9:38 am
the same you know that we're not in states garments put his name and a list of terrorist groups also like this but at the same time we saw a lot of the iranian positions i mean political to the governments they were supporting i.r.g.c. it was really interesting that lots of them some of them were also some of the who are even now in the jane but they have tweeted in support of i.r.g.c. and they said that this is a national army and united states cannot put in national army in elease dr scopes on for lack of so i think if the americans change the situation in a way that the iranian government would practically think about closing the gateway it will have the support from the iranian people because trump showed to data does not also only twitting to governments. also miss
9:39 am
a pompous secretary of state often it's a said that sanctions would have negative effects on the aloft of ordinary people it means that we are putting sanctions also on the iranian people all the people the whole concern in the situation do you any and you have concerns about any confrontation the potential for confrontation regardless of what action iran takes you made a very good point that the i.r.g.c. the iranian revolution god has been designated a terrorist organization by the united states as i pointed out you've got the fifth fleet there as well it seems that there is you know there's almost a platform there for there to be problems in the gulf itself in the in the waters of the gulf. yeah you know by a by the means of my own as a council of this decision their risk of some kind of military confrontation is now and it is because of the u.s. decision so yes it is real practical fracture if you put
9:40 am
the army off the one which is controlling to sort of forms you can i should i should mention that the assert our foremost is under the control of our g.c. navy not did not a national army so. any confrontation between do as possible. military persons and. vs would be. a competition between two groups that are this ignited as a terrorist group by all due to governments because you know that the iranian parliament also puts. american. officers here in the persian gulf as the tourist will come when you should talk and let's bring your economic mind back into this a lot of what we are discussing is all in hypotheticals of what could happen if the strait of hormuz was closed when iranian oil exports are banned completely but take
9:41 am
me through the process of what you think could happen the effect on as i was asking mohamed the iranian economy but the gulf region as well which could be paralyzed by the straits being close and then the wider global oil markets as well. well the global oligarch at the news in your own terminology will become. in there when we fall into a disarray as you mentioned the order of magnitude seven hundred eighteen million barrels per day or oil going into the international supply chain suddenly stopping and disappearing out of the hundred million or ninety million barrels per day oil or out as the more important part of a sixty five million barrels per day traded or oil that is very significant nothing can replace it i've been waiting to hear and that is talk about the pipelines crossing across saudi arabia pipelines in the united arab emirates which go and bypass the strait of hormuz but there will be as for example maybe one and one
9:42 am
point four one point three million barrels per day for in one case in saudi arabia going to yen would generate seaports are something like four and a half million barrels per day capacity as in probably what is available maybe about three million barrels per day and the iraq pipeline going through turkey is not operational in mexico would be four hundred thousand barrels per day so there is in fact no other way to get this or doubt and it is not replaceable the price the horde would shoot in the sky honestly it is not a thing that going can talk about it ok some oil sellers oil company individuals and so on my profits on a short ten races but i think the whole economy in the old there's the threat of collapse there is for example in the international energy agency and they agency of the industrialized world they have a system in place for emergency rationing in case of destructions like this but
9:43 am
that is limited and the plant emergency plan distribution and so on it is only for the industrial company in japan australia and europe and united states and canada and a kennedy priest say about ten twelve million barrels per day for about. months and then out of the strategic reserves out of the commercial visitors and then in the second month program the third month will be a fire in within six months there are strategic reserves can only give about one million two million barrels per day or to india's industrialized countries whereas you have the rest of the world outside is this here of the far east door you see the country the nicest all the developing countries asia latin america and africa and so on india there would be hungry for oil you know and there it is just unthinkable i can't really think of how it is we just shouldn't happen it can happen ok and you have led nicely to my final point because i just starting to run down the clock it strikes me that the three of you the four of us the fact of may
9:44 am
have mapped it all out and presumably people in much higher positions than us of map this out to and yet we still seem to be stumbling toward some sort of confrontation or escalation simon live on what is the best way out of a situation like that given the u.s. really doesn't want to play ball doesn't want to negotiate what in your opinion is the way out diplomacy but then again i would say that being a director of a peace institute diplomacy seems to be the only way out of the types of issues but but this is what is happening this what we're seeing with this current crisis is a consequence of diplomatic channels being shut down and an all avenues for diplomatic dialogue and dialogue generally being shot down in the u.s. with regard to iran and as a consequence it's back to run into a position where it's it seems own able to actually facilitate any type of other movement than to to resort to this type of defensive posturing now i don't think it
9:45 am
will happen i think the state the stakes are too high for everyone involved and there will be some type of creative diplomatic solution perhaps the omanis my to some type of mediator reroll or something like now. but this is what happens when you start to put the squeeze on the state and you start to attack the institutions of the state by prescribing them a terrorist entity and it really is a worrying situation when diplomatic avenues have been squeezed at this point and it creates a climate a climate where any kind of situation any type of action for an old matter of different actors could provoke something whether this is a desire it's consequence or not such heightened tensions mean that actions can be misconstrued means that certain things can be can become compostable elements stakes are incredibly high and it's been really interesting talking to the three of you about it mohamed

how long has. the top stories on. we went and spoke to some of the protesters and they said that what happened was a military truck with soldiers came and tried to remove some of the the roads that make up the barricades they said that they stood their ground and that they force the military to root to return those tailback and they said that they enhance their barricades now those barricades are very significant people are saying that it is what stops security forces from trying to break that set and that is now in its fourth week the sudanese professional association put out a notice and called on protesters to join the tens of thousands who are already in front of the army headquarters protesting for four weeks now they're saying that they will not go home until

trump presidential campaign he sent his resignation letter to president champ and will leave his post by may eleventh those are the headlines trafficking is next. antiquities trafficking is one of the most profitable illegal trades in the world estimated to be worth several billion dollars a year it ranks on after illegal arms and drugs precious objects plundered or discovered in clandestine excavations find their way onto the official market into museums and galleries. the main victims the pillage nations
9:54 am
are now demanding the return of their stolen treasures for a long time these demands for ignored. but systematic ransacking of heritage sites meticulously staged by the islamic state of iraq and the levant isis has caused a global outcry and has reopened the debate with changing public opinion efforts to halt the trafficking have gained a new urgency but are nations prepared to act from berlin to beijing from rome to the syrian border an investigation into trafficking that's at the heart of an economic cultural and diplomatic war.
9:55 am
paris february two thousand and nine crowds flocked to the ground palace to admire the treasures contained in the private collection of eve son of home and pierre ballsy one of the most prestigious in the world a few days later these precious works were to be auctioned off by christie's dozens of masterpieces would be changing hands including these two eighteenth century bronze heads a rat and a rabbit which had once been housed in the imperial palace in beijing their sale sparked an uproar in china. ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah. but the present owner doesn't agree to that is she who has given you credit it is there is there. she's

on my shoulder shake a fellow when one is of your own book lobby to pray for a call on that lake it actually. except that these heads were stolen back in the nineteenth century it was an eight hundred sixty june the second opium war when french and british troops plundered the forbidden city and ransacked the summer palace. still today the destruction and fair ft deep scar for the chinese people. beyond their aesthetic value the bronze heads are considered as priceless items of chinese heritage. should p.r. bags in their former return. to see our producer who know they are his own by due to their feel like i do it there she knew our surveys it the it it every ate

the g.d. . issue you are right so guys are expected it should offer a forty day if you're a fake which probably publicly thank. draconian issue. you couldn't math tourism is a lead there he had to go on the boulevard to d.c. it. was. that. it. was so it was really fun to share as you do. that was new and it was.
9:58 am
the two heads finally went for a combined price of twenty eight million euros the conclusive bids came from a chinese businessman who asked to remain anonymous but five days after the sale the mysterious bio revealed his identity at a press conference in beijing and his announcement was more than unexpected. ways is that in a city that's already been well you know it's interesting to look on for him to see to that idea. as the buyer refused to pay for the objects pillage from his country the big was cancelled and the two bronzes were returned to p.r. back. in china people continue to demand the restitution a demand which took on political dimensions beijing viewed it as a way to exercise and national humiliation but also to confirm its newfound
9:59 am
international clout the two bronzes in the sun the whole bugsy collection had become symbols of the plundering of their country by the west for christie's it was owed and to calm things down with the chinese. in twenty thirty the owner of christie's full swap you know himself sent emissaries to directly negotiate the purchase of the bronzes with. where's your beer can we could see. near. from france where pino asked this it had to be employed here or there or it could be due she says his for credit issuers. officially from swapping no return the heads to beijing out of friendship for the people of china but that wasn't all a few weeks after the return of the bronzes in the presence of the french businessman the chinese government finally gave christie's permission to operate in the country and exchange as described it.
10:00 am
the much publicized case of the summer palace bronzes is far from unique more and more pillage countries are demanding the return of their cultural assets the trophies of the renowned museums of the western world. pillaged countries have a legal tool to negotiate for the return of their stolen treasures the nine hundred seventy unesco convention signed in june the era of de colonization imposes on all nations to return objects obtained illegally. in recent years the pressure on renowned museums has intensified. the pergamon museum the most visited in berlin is obliged to know the origins of its collections. you start to understand that what you have here is not
10:01 am
just archaeological object but it's part of the cultural heritage of the region or of these countries and at that point you realize you're talking about. a political dimension or a cultural political dimension. as a director i cannot say i don't know when somebody asks me how did your collection actually come into being so my responsibility as director of this museum is to know everything about the objects. while the key documents in this file are the ones that tell us basically that it was ok to take up the object and this we have to do for everything and considering that we have roughly five hundred thousand objects you know that this is a huge task ahead for us something that has to be done over decades really five
10:02 am
hundred thousand objects all in there so that's an ongoing process that will all take until i'm retiring but the important thing is somebody is doing it every day because you have to have a lot as i was at his work september made a new going to close it got extended the present is an extent bush said you know should that get ideologue a big piece of spy example in just musicland missile never going off in a divorce exact amount of yang. and. all the fragments you see here have been put together for new zealand and we wouldn't be acquiring stuff anymore the pergamon stopped acquiring in the one nine hundred thirty s. forty years before the signing of the unesco convention which isn't retroactive this is. so the museum's collection is seemingly protected from demands for restitution but that's not the opinion in turkey specially in the city of. young that you guys and they should come. thank you. for so often
10:03 am
mr. nameless and. we don't at all my. name is that on those i want the money was a debate the internet. is a leg and then say that and i said and as many people in this business is made about i've had. this black list includes objects and so in the british museum in london but also in the pentagon in berlin although they were all acquired before nine hundred seventy turkey still wants them back. it's not a question of museums anymore because it's a request of the state of turkey. they also are in the process of overcoming. colonial attitudes towards cultural heritage and
10:04 am
in this process they have started to realize that. countries in the west have not always been upfront about their practices of acquiring collections begin getting asked ovation to live if you can. given busy. busy. shanty can and can't and then just. said we didn't get it in our mind i made. sure that in this year they are using in. the pillagers happened over a century ago but turkey isn't ready to forget. like china and italy turkey has made the restitution of its treasures a political priority. within its culture ministry the turkish government has set up
10:05 am
a special restitution unit. forty or so lawsuits have already been won resulting in the return of over four thousand objects. one of the special units successes is the restitution of this music of orpheus stolen in the nine hundred fifty s. then purchased by the dallas museum of art after several years of legal wrangling the museum was obliged to return it. while pillage nations like turkey have a legal framework to demand reparations this isn't the case in the private sector where only the market rules. in this antique shop window how many artifacts have a perfectly established origin in many cases it's practically impossible to verify
10:06 am
. does the private antiquities market have its own rules immune to international legislation you know sco had attempted to extend its nine hundred seventy convention to better control private transactions a new convention adopted in one thousand nine hundred five the unit the convention on stolen or illegally exported cultural objects obliges sellers to prove the legal origin of an artifact it also obliges buyers to demand proof but although the original unesco convention is recognized by one hundred thirteen nations only thirty seven party states have committed to the united wired convention.
10:07 am
so the market is winning thriving with its own often shady rules chadian as embodied by the freeport system one of the main thoroughfares of art market trafficking. the best known are here in geneva but the exist throughout the world free ports were originally special economic zones which stocked in transit merchandise to reduce or avoid customs duties are dealers were soon renting space in these huge warehouses to discreetly store artifacts by allowing people to store all kinds of objects without the slightest control free ports have long been considered as a hub of antiquities trafficking it's estimated there are over a million works deposited here more than twice the number contained in the movie. this swiss establishment guarantees its clients one hundred percent confidentiality
10:08 am
its high security site is protected from theft but also from prying eyes artifacts can be stored safely here for years sit behind. a. joint on would you like to find a not understood it should one miss with one on sauce fiske out when your t.v. would order to the tax or look a mass nadal set up. no taxation and appealing advantage for our dealers while the works remain inside of freeport they can be sold and bought without being subjected to any kind of tax. customs duties are only paid once when a work definitively leaves the freeport a perfectly legal tax haven right in the heart of europe.
10:09 am
these facilities explain why the gallery phoenix keeps most of its merchandise in free ports and the showcases only a small part of the collection is displayed the gallery belongs to tom one of the biggest antiquities dealers in the world. in twenty ten customs discovered in alley tons warehouse in the freeport of geneva this is second century roman surkov a guess since then it has been the center of a complex legal battle. it will be awful you know all over the people and sank our love and do i live on this on the on the top end of the docks to fall that's not hope you bleak put on your own music. so decidedly i'm don't. know jane

on get heated this is soccer first elapsing stood looking out there someplace on c.n.n. see levity dick we haven't seen more in a clear goodness. heavy faced with doubts over the object origin the sale was finally cancelled as the so called because it was probably looted in turkey swiss authorities decided to allow ankara let your key for me do cool let your key sit there. but of course if you. imported united it closely aunt jackie amanda booth thought they did agree. to set this exposed as short a set of food called the simple suggestion to put it in food so it doesn't keep as . that took the tumble bruce down. on a lot there for the story of it we'll be talking more live only the longer to

a for me. what is an art loss register certificate the precious open sesame of the art market a document which states that an object wasn't stolen. founded in london twenty five years ago as a private information service with over four hundred thousand listed objects are lost register who owns the largest database of stolen artifacts in the world for a fee any buyer or seller can ask art loss register to verify that a piece is not listed on its database. these registrations these. could also be registration from a museum just in case items ever started on the register them on the database just in case they show up for sale somewhere else and most office examples of the surface from the national museum of iraq. in two thousand and three and two

thousand and four. and what was amazing is they were very careful and you can tell it was well because they went into the basement once they'd stolen everything and they destroyed all the documentation for the objects so that people would know what had been stolen unfortunately the major objects have been recorded elsewhere. here you can see actually the different words that we've entered just to help bring that up so here they were brought on they were put. braided have something like that and. in the case of the baghdad museum an inventor really existed so stolen objects could be captured on to the database but in war zones very few museums keep precise invent a reason and there's no way that objects discovered during illegal digs will ever be listed obviously that's incredibly difficult when you're looking at loot you

don't logical material that has been looted out of the ground it was taken out of the ground and potentially the only people that even know of its existence of the people who dug it out. and yet this certificate is widely used on the antiquities market as is the case tom's sarcophagus. i wish i had paid to powers. i would say. ates we've always been very clear about what our certificates are for and they state very clearly that an item is not in our database and it's not being registered with us but that not every theft or loss or looting event is registered with us say it's not complete. the art loss register certificate nonetheless remains the main document supplied by
10:16 am
a seller to prove his or her good faith a precious certificate which can multiply the price of an object by ten but why is this as provided by a private company and not by a public body at least on a european level changes in national laws you go across an interesting nation states in the make it very difficult to resolve issues relating to stolen art in particular because suddenly limitation periods change principles of acquiring good title shayne's. is something that people take advantage of to get around the system .
