4:05 pm
trying to create a barrage on the road separating the protest sitting from headquarters of the military and groups of protesters also approaching the military gates and shouting louder than ever before trying to make their voice heard and to convince the military to cede power to the civilians what happens here on the ground as i stand is that affliction of the difficulties that the negotiators have been facing over the last few days yesterday they. left the negotiation table without agreeing on any specific point only that framework of a joint military civilian council but no agreement on how many members from the civilian side and how many members from the military side no agreement on any of the other phases of the transition or the structures of the government the only two points agreed on in principle are the creation of the of the ruling council and also the writing of a constitutional declaration in which they have to put all of the details not
4:06 pm
organize the work of the government during the transition but they have not agreed on any of that and today there are doubts until now whether they will meet again because they were supposed to do that this afternoon until now no signs that they have set up any specific time for the meeting and the two sides are part of the are studying their positions here where excessive he suffering here in the sun people have continued and are amassing in bigger numbers thousands are on their way now as i speak coming from darfur trying to join this protest and thousands have been coming from the internal regions we have been dominant here in this city where all the. regions that have been revolting against the former she must remember she they have been fighting with arms against the regime are no here without any arms in their hands but only their force is trying to make their voice heard in
4:07 pm
a different way and realizing that probably by peaceful means they can make a stronger influence in the country by taking up arms a phenomenon of unity between all the sudanese who have been who think they have been marginalized or say they are being marginalized by the former regime and subject of crackdowns on subject of suffering and wrongdoings by the former regime they are trying to you know make their voice heard as i said in one one group you know sudan united as they say with one voice with the same demands the toppling of the regime and real change reforms and the military to get out of power and leave it for civilians mohammed ali for us and khartoum mohamed thank you very much then israel's government says it's tailing with what it's calling a coup by a group of soldiers opposition leader was has appeared in a video surrounded by soldiers at an air base in caracas white house says the final

4:10 pm
a bigger movement that didn't materialize he's been traveling the country talking to people who oppose nicolas maduro of whom there are many we do know that since we know that venezuela is suffering from severe economic problems inflation out of control shortage of food and medicine something like four million venezuelans have left the country living around latin america europe united states watching and waiting to see what will happen now. feels he's got the support after this so he's done of the country but what this does now do is give nicolas mcdougall president the chance to say that though has broken the law he's instigating of who. is is meant to be on the house arrest and has broken not so no doubt he will step in on the rest then now he now will feel that he has the authority to do that and then again we have to wait and see what the reaction to that movement is likely to be. trying to lie for some kind of status daniel thank you but a complete haokip now for reaction from the u.s.
4:11 pm

4:12 pm
that history will be written in the days in the hours ahead this is your opportunity now is your moment don't let it slip away this is your final chance to make the right choice for freedom or risk becoming a colony of cuba so it's very clear that. marco rubio a republican senator just like president trump is a republican president they have firmly put their position their support behind what they call the interim leader of venezuela. my from washington kimberly thank you. plenty more ahead on the news hour including hope for refugees living in the pakistani city of karachi for years without citizen ship. they may not be the right size and the very core audio we're going to get kitted out. champions on their visit to the white house joe will have that in sports.
4:13 pm
that afghans are meeting for a second day in the capital kabul for discussions between the afghan government and the taliban a meeting known as the loya jirgah has been a way to bring afghans together for centuries but many including the taliban have boycotted the event saying it would not be productive among them the second most powerful man in the country afghanistan's chief executive. bellus reports from kabul. this is the day where the action truly begins at the loya jirga more than three thousand people in the big white building you see behind me have broken into groups broken into fifty committees to try to discuss and define what should look like in afghanistan they will be in these groups to basing that question for anywhere between three and seven days they will do that by trying to answer four questions those questions what needs to be done to achieve long lasting pace what
4:14 pm
value should be safeguarded if the government does get to talk with the taliban what value should be safeguarded in those talks what type of personality should represent the afghan government in those talks and lastly foreign policy what should the government's foreign policy be towards countries that do support the taliban now in that in that tent there are more than three thousand people they are meant to represent different ages different ethnicities different religions they mean to come from every district across afghanistan and truly represent the afghan population and trying to answer these questions the. some criticism that that is not entirely true because the taliban does control who can taste about fifty six percent of the country and they are not in support of this in which a good if people from those areas came here they would face real danger of home returning to those taliban areas because the taliban does not support it before the government's workaround is being to pull people originally from those areas who may
4:15 pm
now live in kabul to represent the home districts they may have been away for ten or fifteen years so whether or not they do truly represent those areas that is up for debate. is the former chief editor of the kabul weekly he joins us live from the afghan capital now we appreciate your time very much so is our correspondent charlotte was saying there's about three thousand people that were invited that's a rather large group you would think that it would be representative of the country but my understanding is you don't actually think it is why. can you. can you hear me. same yes yes i do know ok great let me let me just start start the question again i was saying that there is about three thousand people or there is about three thousand people that are and and attendance at this loya jirga but is it truly representative of the country.
4:16 pm
because. this is that this is on this on this kind of the meeting because i was always serving there i was in the arms of the rulers and the god of this of the rulers or the king or the presidents. tradition is that this kind of the meeting always of the agenda of the rulers this is why if you see by because of why it is politicians and political part of the in the con that is off to presidential election to the agenda it's because of that because they have this concern that the president because the third is in line the ones to promote his own agenda through the loya
4:17 pm
jirgah the combination of the guys are always the same people who are coming from the different of the country to discuss something this always happened and just laughing today and tomorrow and it's happened yesterday so the concern is that but if you if you have different points of view. is boycotting and is not going really going to accomplish anything don't you have to be there to make your voice heard. i know there are of course obviously if if there's a court unity to bring up their vice of the people off on this why not people should should. guy was traveling i was invited to go but i was traveling down the country and i had no opportunity but then from the first day i of course if i have the opportunity i would have gone there but the concern is still there even if some
4:18 pm
people are going there to bring god or to rise their vices but but still they have this constant and they feel and i as most of the politicians they feel that their president was its own i was even though. prior to that they have said something to be promoted through this guy and so this is this is this is why people buy got that they do it all right all it's a four day event will continue to see what comes out of it. thank you very much japan's emperor akihito has formally abdicated on the ceremony in tokyo he thanked the public and say he prays for peace the ritual which involves handing over the chrysanthemum throne to his son took place at the imperial palace or hito will now become emperor this is the first abdication and more than two hundred years so since my enthronement it has been thirty years all my duties as important were put into effect through sincere it and wishing for the peace of all japanese people and
4:19 pm
that has been my happiness in my duties as a representative and simple of japan and to be allowed to partake in this task for my gratitude and to morrow we will start a new imperial era ray while my sincere wish is for further tranquility and peace and this is the wish of the emperors and myself. when he has the latest from tokyo . it was a very brief ceremony lasting only around ten minutes inside a room of the imperial palace on a very gloomy evening in the japanese capital tokyo more than three hundred people inside that room for the ceremony to see the abdication of emperor akihito they were members of the imperial family of course members of government led by the prime minister shinzo albury who formally announced the abdication of the emperor this all came about after a surprise speech from emperor akihito in two thousand and sixteen in which he said
4:20 pm
that he was concerned that his age and his health would mean that he wouldn't be able to carry out his imperial duties to the best of his ability he didn't say he wanted to abdicate he couldn't use that term because it was effectively against the law there was no law in japan to allow for abdication but he sent a very clear message to the government and opinion polls among the japanese public clearly showed that they supported his wishes to stand down so the government was really left with no choice the year after to pass a one off or the one allowing for the abdication so as japanese say goodbye to emperor akihito they prepared to welcome in the one hundred twenty sixth emperor that will be crowned prince. who will ascend the throne and become emperor on wednesday about three hundred thousand then ghaly and head to refugees living in pakistan or hoping that some of them could soon get pakistani citizen ship many of
4:21 pm
them have been living in the country for forty years the majority are in makeshift shelters and the second of our series on the plight of refugees reports in karachi . they've gone from burma and bangladesh we're not doing it glowed some are looking to escape persecution in their homeland. and now those extreme. they have set up temporary homes by the a.p. in c. some have been here for about four decades and for them unplanned urban sprawl is now a pulmonary finding a job or difficulty they're not going our country where the high unemployment and economy bite of your door and have basic identity. it makes it even more difficult or. sixty one years or it's life or death fisherman is hard uncertain brame headed home and workplace and today he's wearing.
4:22 pm
crab others are preparing their nets before the height they may be away from their families up to ten days working from dilapidated. but these people have few options on what to buy so it's a little you know when kids of forty years old twenty twenty five and eighteen my children are not resisted and have no documentation if we don't have proper documents than hell we get access to basic human rights like education employment and access to hospitals and even to travel abroad who look at me people who. are asked by the local police and then the u.s. can that but when it's not a good there's no mercy from the police here they harass you for not having identity papers whenever your confronted by them or they put you in prison declaring you're a terrorist or collect bribes the poor are suffering. and many children have.
4:23 pm
liberated ways to help their families. you can see all these kids around me they should be in school rather than in the streets but they can't get access to education as they don't have any identity papers but no prime minister emraan hawn declared the plight of people here a humanitarian same children born here should have a right to citizenship and the united nation a very big issue is of course their documentation and i think this is something that as you know the prime minister himself has mentioned the fact that afghan children and thinking of his children born and brought up in pakistan should have access to citizenship but in terms of their own injury i think the primary issue is really documentation we applaud the prime minister proposal and we stand ready to assist the government of pakistan in any way for these people permanent citizenship

4:32 pm
political issue. of people who believe. in. watching the top stories for you now so dan's military council has war protesters not to take the law into their own hands many on the streets are calling for a civilian government army leaders say they are negotiating with protesters and good faith. government says it's dealing with the coup attempt by a group of soldiers opposition leader one point zero has appeared in
4:33 pm
a video surrounded by soldiers at an air base said to be in caracas and what we're trying to take a look at here pictures of large crowds answering calls from the opposition to march through the streets of a capital we'll keep an eye on that for you. afghans are meeting for a second day and the capital kabul for discussions between the afghan government and the taliban that many including the taliban have boycotted the saying it won't be. our top story now the developments in sudan where the military council is warning protesters against further blockades or disruptions to daily life thousands of people have been staging a sit in in khartoum since earlier this month but also barricaded. bridges and disrupted trains protest groups a call for civil disobedience and a general strike as part of efforts to force the military to hand over civilian rule some of the barricades led to the military headquarters where crowds have gathered since april sixth five days before the removal of president omar al bashir
4:34 pm
the military strikes remove the blockade several times that faced opposition from the crowds for more on that rest and sudan let's go to well amity but he's the founder and president of sudan policy forum he's encarta only appreciate your time very much so what do you make of the tone at this press conference that the military council had today. as a matter of fact. but the dollar has been very infuriating to the public nonetheless i think the demands we're very logical but but again. it's not it's not. the kids as much as the presence of the state that is and it is the whole idea of the seat in in front of the army i think this ought to continue. because it's a very simply i mean this whole idea about the new military council could have
4:35 pm
should have been transformed to something council in a month of these and now it's taking a number of weeks but the mistake that the military spokesman or the leaders or the military council have made they have allowed themselves to be many people did it i think they are now being put into face if he is to freeze in front of the demon is still at that i believe that if the both the whole the military council and. the theme of negotiate that is playing very many many puti for old that is delaying the whole process it's not only the military council it's also doesn't let me. ok let me ask you about that one of the things that they military council said today is they basically said that the opposition that they're
4:36 pm
talking to is disorganized that they change their demands that there are different people all the time is that a fair critique. it's a fair critique yet an incomplete one because i believe that it is this is the determination actually the insistence of the military council to include all of their members in the. council is not justifiable because rather than having seven they could have just reduced the number to two and they could have added three civilians a total number of five because again if you think of the sovereign can see it is just the present it is a body that is supposed to be the present if of the whole sudanese nation that's the very idea of having it so very in council again. a good thing or
4:37 pm
assigning a prime minister. should not have taken such a long time. that the whole process is not being the only delineated they have not agreed upon the criteria and it's taking more than the time needed and that's the that's not the responsibility of the military council that's the responsibility of the civilians who are in charge of the negotiations and they are the they are in talk of this order and they don't seem to have agreed upon the criteria needless to say the personality or the name that's supposed to be the prime minister ok or they were supposed to be another meeting today we don't yet know what that's actually going to happen or keep an eye on this eleven eva thank you so much for joining us for sudan policy forum we appreciate it. israel's n a parliament is being sworn in three weeks after a hotly contested general election harry foster joins us live from leicester aslan so harry what's the tone. oh
4:38 pm
well it's the ceremony this has already taken place the president reagan rivlin arriving and spectate in on a guard and then listening to a rendition of the israeli national anthem now the actual swearing in of the hundred twenty members of this twenty first knesset is taking place each of them standing in the in their place and saying that they commit to allegiance towards a state of israel and to carrying out their duties as knesset members honorably what is this all really sets up the is the real work towards building a coalition benjamin netanyahu of course winning that very bitterly contested election his new could party along with an assembly of right wing parties has the seats in the knesset for a sixty five to fifty five majority for
4:39 pm
a coalition government so the coalition building which was on pause during the process of a holiday is now back up and running and it has some pretty important things to factor into it one of those is the fact that one of the key potential members of the coalition is the israel between the party which is secularist it doesn't like the policies and the demands being made by the the ultra orthodox religious parties which have done better in this election than they did in the last election they want to see more separation between religion and state and so the leader of that party former defense minister avigdor lieberman is saying he won't join a government which exceeds to too many of those demands there's also of course hanging over this the question of benjamin netanyahu own fate the israeli prime minister who's expected to speak. in a few minutes he of course is facing a hearing or at least one hearing in which the indictments the pending indictment on corruption charges may well be handed down and of course he made that commitment

4:41 pm
talking about warships escorted by small speedboats with mounted machine guns patrolling the waters around iran southern coast in the distance dozens of transport in cargo ships visible at any point in time give a sense of how much traffic these waters see on a daily basis iranian leaders have said time and again that it is in their interest and everyone's interest to keep the strait of hormuz open to the free flow of ships that move goods and especially oil but the presence of battle ready boats like this are meant to send a message about who iran considers as being in charge of these waters this is as close as we can get to one of the runs warships the navy here takes the security of its vessels very seriously especially around the waters of the strait of hormuz where boats like this one have the job of policing traffic but also looking out for american warships and with ongoing u.s. sanctions iranian leaders civilian and military alike have promised over and over again that if iran can't sell its oil and ship it soil through these waters then no

a party can no longer stand back not our fault says the ruling party you don't really real report today's violent acts and hold them ultimately responsible. it's all over an electoral reform bill the ruling alliance wants to pass in time for national elections next year. and which the opposition parties seem determined to stop anyway they can. they're the most serious disturbances in the national assembly for years ever since the law was brought in to stop just such confrontations in a chamber that has had a reputation for being a political boxing ring passed in twenty twelve the so-called anti scuffling law was meant to make scenes like this a thing of the past gruelling it seems was a part of everyday business but when a tear gas canister was set off members decided enough was enough i actually
