12:00 am
i have in mexico city thank you 21 head of the news hour and clearing a decades on how the victims of the mass killing during the bosnian war are finally being identified and a new memorial in new york to honor those who responded during the 911 attacks and in support of other hiring see tumbles out at the french open all will have that coming our. protests in sudan's capital khartoum are defying warnings from the military to stop their sit in outside the military headquarters this is the scene as people took part in friday prayers during the protest on thursday a senior army official said the sit in had become a hub for criminals and was creating a danger for the state and al-jazeera has denounced the sudanese government's decision to close its bureau in khartoum saying this network sees this as an attack
12:01 am
on media freedom professional journalism and the basic tenets of the right for people to know and understand the reality of what is happening in sudan the network deplores the decision and assures its audiences in sudan and globally that will continue to its coverage of sudan despite this political interference by the sudanese authorities. as a member of griffin a nonviolent resistance movement in sudan he joins us via skype from khartoum pretty shape or time very much so let me just pick up on this the fact that the government is shutting down al-jazeera is that trying to send a message through to the press there what do you what do you make of that. yeah this is the least turning point like you moving the freedoms of press and trying to have the world not see what's happening is a big deal. and that i think is a turning point because what happened after april 11th and the collapse of the government suddenly the government allowed journalists from all over the world to
12:02 am
be a citizen to come to sudan and to cover this and for them now to decide that no the world doesn't need to see this anymore is a sign for us that some things are changing and we're going back to them a crackdown on evidence and we're actually getting ready for a crackdown on the protests there ia ok so a crackdown web bare response to maybe the that what you were doing was was working so are you saying that you're ready to dig an even more. yes i mean what's happening with the negotiation between the. declaration for freedom and change for talking from the point of there are other stories with the transitional council they reached a point where we're supposed to have a civilian government and they reached a point where they are not moving forward. for the summit council i was going to give up our civilians or they're not going to do it and now we're more than $55.00 days into this situation and we're thinking that now is the time or we have to go back to fighting this government in another way because they're not giving the
12:03 am
military doesn't want to give up power so we were like waiting for them to give up power and if they were serious about given up power they were not going to do a crackdown on the media so we're like i'm worried now ok so what what would that next step be as you see it. so the next step is going to be one whole like ending the negotiation at the level at so basically everything that's are agreed on is fine that's the 1st that is and then at the 2nd step would be to announce the government our government the degrees of freedom and change government with seats left and that the military is supposed to fill in and then the 3rd step is to either for them to accept it or we're going to go back to protest we're going to go back to escalation. our actions are protesting shutting down streets strikes and till they met to give up power the what is the feeling like at these protests that they sit in what is the energy like there. so
12:04 am
a few days ago we had the strike and the strike. was the 1st time we felt that although the. citizen is the heart of the protest we have a whole body and that strike allowed us to have actions happening outside the city and this ignited and energize a lot of the movement and people who are not taking part of it who are not sitting at the sit in. they were able to play a major role in losing what was happening on the strikes were very successful the government the transitional council voted back using like fighting people like breaking hitting people beating them up especially in banks where a woman was beaten up and her phone was broken for taking them videos so so suddenly everybody is energized again and we're going in to eat and week we're hoping that before then they're going to give up power but if they don't then i think the period after he's going to be escalation so but at the same time sitten
12:05 am
it's very energized is very strong people are coming in every night and we have thousands of people here there's. a lot of political talk there's like we have a couple of stages and people are just discussing different things that are going to happen how you move our country forward. moving the country for that's a that's obviously a noble thing to want to do but are you at any point afraid of the unknown. i mean yes at this point but we should go if you come to the streets there one thing you're always going to hear people say is minium it in the which means civilian civilians so that the amazing thing about the sudanese protests is we always find these words simplify and really explain what we want so before it used to be those good bets which means that it's full and that's how we got to this that when we got rid of them or bashir and now the call is always made in the image in the civilian civilian we want civilian rule we do not one minute too little and that's where we go in forward where and we 100 percent we will want to we want to please to take
12:06 am
over and we want the military to do their job which is just protection i just really a mentor talking about this place come back again thank you thank you police in algeria have reportedly arrested dozens of protesters thousands continue to rally every friday they're demanding for their change after president as elysees been a flake and stepped down last month elections are scheduled for july iranians have turned out in force across the country to mark drizzling day demonstrations are being held across the region and a show of support for the palestinian cause iran has marked the day since the start of its 1979 islamic revolution comes just weeks before the white house presents the economic part of its long awaited peace plan in bahrain. hayom it was that was seen in the message of jerusalem day is that palestine will live forever and jerusalem belongs to all muslims and over the past 2 years none of the plots of the enemies
12:07 am
of islam against jerusalem has been successfully 1st they tried making jerusalem the capital of the egresses we saw that other than one or 2 small countries no one else accepted that then they tried to give the golan heights to israel no country and all the international community accepted that now they're off to the deal of the century i believe it will be the bankruptcy of the century it will definitely go nowhere urana said back at accusations made by arab leaders that it's a threat to global security scare on described their condemnation as baseless and said saudi arabia was dividing the entire region the leaders attended emergency summits in mecca where saudi king solomon called for arab states to confront iran iraq. refused to sign a separate communique urging action on tehran warning aggressive rhetoric could make the situation worse the palestinian plight was also on the agenda with president mahmoud abbas calling on the leaders to reject president donald trump as
12:08 am
proposed peace deal with israel. we called for an end today's israeli occupation of palestine under stablish meant to abolish the an independent state on the borders of 1967 with east jerusalem as its capital i would like to also reaffirm our absolute stance against american attempts to undermine international law with what is called the deal of the century to abolish the principle of a 2 state solution and prime minister attended the talks it was the 1st high level meeting since the 2017 blockade on his nation anderson as reports. this is the 1st high level contact between cattle in saudi arabia for nearly 2 years the qatari prime minister shaikh abdullah bin nasa being funny and saudi king salamander bin abdel-aziz the saudis are trying to show they have wider backing in their efforts to counter what they say is iran's growing influence the qatari prime
12:09 am
minister here briefly shaking hands with the king of bahrain kuwait see me or trying to encourage some dialogue as he has done since 2017 he's been attempting to mediate in the dispute between cats and the blockading countries of saudi arabia bahrain the united arab emirates and egypt. what the saudis want to do is to try to project a united front to the iranian regime interfered in our internal affairs and develop ballistic and nucular weapons it affects navigation in international oil this is a naked aggression against our stability and international security. but iraq objected to a communique attacking iran issued later which supported the rights of saudi arabia and the u.a.e. to defend their interests following what they say were attacks on shipping and oil installations and i quote any future when you have that as in what proper what are my brothers in the midst of this tense time and the quick developments and
12:10 am
a tense regional and international environment full of threats we are watching before our eyes the escalation of a regional and international crisis which can turn into a war that will engulf assault. the saudis may have the support of the united states but some observers think their tactics are high risk when the g.c.c. is so divided instead of uniting and unifying the gulf region to stand with a block of solid block they're actually dividing it into different countries they are this integrating. regional organization that you see a reference there to the blockade of catarrh after allegations made by saudi the u.a.e. bahrain in egypt but the country backs terrorism accusations firmly denied by category leaders saudi arabia isn't giving the impression any breakthrough is imminent.
12:11 am
qatar participated in previous summits so it is not new it is true this time they were represented by the prime minister of the saudi stance like the other countries is that we are looking for a solution for the cause of the problems and the crisis between these countries and qatar hopefully there will be a solution if it comes back to the right path. but the issue of iran dominates the thinking and talking saudi arabia may regard support from the g.c.c. and the arab league as a diplomatic advantage but with opposition led by iraq that message isn't warn of all arab unity andrew symonds. saudi arabia's military campaign in yemen was one of the issues discussed at the arab summit in mecca the saudis defended their position saying they reserve the right to defend themselves from foreign attacks riyadh says iran has been providing support to the who these an accusation tehran has denied. an arab league leaders in saudi arabia are now turning their attention to the organization of islamic cooperation with its 57 member country spread over 4
12:12 am
continents the oh i see is the 2nd largest organization after the united states united nations pardon me it was established 60 years ago to end its word safeguard and protect the interests of the muslim world in the spirit of promoting international peace but critics say it's failed to achieve its goals because of divisions among some of its members are in bashar is al jazeera senior political analyst he joins us now from london we'll get to the oh i see in a moment 1st let's back up a little bit and talk about the arab summit that happened last night what is it that saudi arabia and the countries there with the exclusion of iraq will get to that what is it that they want to happen with iran. actually we don't know i mean best to think right we have a communique a fan of communicate it's clear that they condemn iran interference and out of affairs and certainly iran has been interfering in
12:13 am
a good number of other countries but the problem with that is that it basically ends there it's more of a declarative statement than it is an action plan and clearly there's no consensus about what to do with iran i think it i think if saudi arabia wanted some sort of out of solidarity with it visit the iran it's certain they got it even if there was a bit of exception if you will by iraq and so on and so forth but for the time being what we have is i don't believe there's gather in saudi arabia and the and in the end it's not much of a political meeting it's more of a public relations meeting because it comes up with a statement that is where there's nothing you absolutely 0 surprise but then there's no follow up there's no real action plan about what to do so as i said and iraq was the one country that was and very resistant to all of this but i mean
12:14 am
really does this their voices their position really carry any weight. well it does carry some weight especially in the gulf i mean let's remember that the 2 important big states in the out of the persian gulf is are iraq and iran and then to the day they certainly have a lot of weight and when iraq speaks regardless of its relations with iran and saudi arabia but when iraq speaks it out speaks out of a number of perspectives one it has a huge history long history of wars in the gulf it suffered a lot and it really doesn't want to see another war and 2nd it one wants to be kept out over whatever and escalation towards a conflict there is between iran and saudi arabia and 3rd it doesn't want to take a side in this although it is in tow and so many ways close to iran it is an out of country to
12:15 am
a large degree and hence it wants everyone to you know get along the bay city when it wants a political solution absolutely so let's talk about looking forward to the oh i see a meeting that's happening and it appears that the issue of palestine is going to be front and center and then of course that's just a few weeks before this conference that white house advisor has to be having in in bahrain saying that he's got some sort of plan for palestine in israel so having said that what this just being a few weeks ahead of that what do you think that the messaging is going to be about palestine coming out of this meeting tonight. i think it's going to be as good as all the previous statements but that's where it ends you know that if you notice there's a bit of a. you know a theme that goes on between all these summits. whether it is this year or in previous years there we are very high on talk and statements and vetted law in
12:16 am
action so the islamic countries all 50 plus of a number of them will condemn once again the annexation of jerusalem and the recognition of that exception of jerusalem and probably will demand israeli to deal cute by palestinian lands and there were calls for a 2 state solution and so on so forth but will there be an action plan i doubt if you know there's now a days malaysia is more than ready to negotiate between the united states and china than it is to negotiate between saudi arabia and iran or israel and palestine so a good number of countries whether it's indonesia malaysia and other countries are a bit far and all what you could expect from them at this point in time is symbolic support for palestine unless and until the important core countries within the middle east region like turkey iran and saudi arabia come together in order to hold the islamic world accountable to

12:21 am
trump said he'll impose tariffs on goods from mexico unless the country stops illegal immigration and the mexican foreign minister is due to travel to washington on friday to meet with u.s. officials he's called the treatment of his country unjust and says it doesn't make economic sense more losses talk to christopher wilson the deputy director of the wilson center specs co institute he joins us from washington via skype thank you very much for your time so well talk about the issue of tariffs and general in a moment but 1st the concept of tying terrorists to trying to get some sort of action on immigration does that make sense to you. well traditionally in u.s. mexico relations there's been an effort to put these things on separate tracks to make sure that there's not contamination from trade to migration security issues to other things because there's such a big complex relationship between the 2 countries and so what this does is it shows 1st of all just how intent and focused president trump is on this might
12:22 am
ration issue on control of the u.s. border with mexico but it absolutely holds some risks it risk contaminating the entire relationship it risks preventing the passage of the u.s. m.c.a. renegotiated nafta in the congress of mexico and potentially also in the united states it puts at risk actually the very cooperation on immigration issues and to me i have to say that all that is so that is that is the question i was going to ask them our reporters are saying that mexico actually has been doing more and on top of that what these people are doing is actually not illegal it is not illegal to show up at the border and try to seek asylum. it's not illegal for someone to show up at a u.s. border and seek asylum absolutely it is generally their their trip through mexico is often without a visa and so would be illegal in that sense and still about half of the migrants
12:23 am
are not claiming asylum on the us mexico border so there's a mix of legal methods and unauthorized methods that are correct but in very just a point that you brought up in very importantly mexico was at the table working with the united states on this it's true that in the 1st 2 months of the new administration in mexico in december in january there was there were more vicious eases issued to central american migrants and you were detentions and deportations of central american migrants but at the u.s. urging in recent months mexico has been working very hard to not just try to protect migrants and their human rights but also to work on deterrence with united states so there's not such a massive flow of migrants coming from central america so to have a threat of terror of starting in a 5 percent level just rising and rising and rising throughout the fall if the numbers don't drop it strikes me as a very strange thing to do to the united states best partner in managing this this
12:24 am
regional challenge so who is going to really be affected. or harmed by these terrorists. yeah and what we know is that terrorists are really paid by purchasers so in this case that supports american consumers who would be hit with a 5 percent syrup but because u.s. mexico trade is is often actually about how it is trade in parts and materials going. back and forth across the border this means that this is also a tax on u.s. manufacturers u.s. producers the very people that president trump sought to improve the lot of through his trade negotiations christopher wilson with the wilson center as mexico institute thank you sir thanks for having me the afghan taliban has carried out a car bombing in kabul killing 4 people 7 others were wounded including 4 u.s. service members the bomb target a military convoy in the city's western cali was 0 district

12:31 am
a connection to. the automobile or fia. the car manufacturer is now free at chrysler automobiles but still one of the biggest employers in turin italy automotive hub they are the same. way when you go in is the rallies former colleagues to fight for their rights and thousands of other workers in the diminishing auto industry here chrysler has temporarily read off more than half its workforce at this plant for what it calls modernization and. they work very little and this is very serious it is clearly the result of no longer having the italian automotive industry rather become a multinational company. representatives have met unions and see more than $5000000000.00 will be invested to with 3 years and there will be a return to full employment this factory was inaugurated in 1939 it has seen the
12:32 am
height of its production but since then the company's headquarters have moved to the netherlands its financial headquarters in london and the bulk of chrysler's production is done in detroit. once home to tens of thousands of workers too in the shadow of its former production of 6000 cars a day jobs the once booming car industry changed talian lifestyles it made them more and more but that's all in the past. it's very difficult to imagine a future for the italian automotive industry because in 20 years the number of workers and the number of cars manufactured has reduced tremendously. it's only so-called motors not only still produces fewer but bigger price tag cars such as my . rotty out for romeo ferrari and lamborghini thanks and some entrepreneurs are using it despite italy's skyrocketing public debt and recession fears. this family owned business which used to make seat belts for passenger cars and both is now

a nice manufacturer of seats seat belts and motor sport products. georgia marci i founded the company in the 1970 s. but he sees a future only if the government pays attention to it least slowing industrial production would just need the government to realize the big challenge that the country and the industry we have nearly 11 percent unemployment marketed tony is part of the coalition governments commission for economic development we are nowhere in taxes we are lowering. the is the. tax we have a new one year is not sufficient to change it an economy of account 3 because if you. job problem unemployment you cannot solve it in one year the real test for europe's 2nd producers will be to endure this economic pressure in the now and industrial rebound sham of a job without his ear to ear. a new memorial has been unveiled
12:34 am
a new york honoring those who lost their lives in the 911 attacks many of the 1st responders continue to suffer from being exposed to toxins nearly 18 years ago. christian salumi has more. in the park where the twin towers once stood the unveiling of the new memorial highlights the lingering impact of the september 11th attacks particularly on 1st responders nearly 400 of them have died from 911 related illness so far thousands more are sick at the ceremony being mixed with dignitaries amid the slanted stones meant to honor them bridget gormley father william was a firefighter whose company was one of the 1st on the scene that day everybody initially had the 911 cough the world trade center cough it wasn't until 2016 though that he was diagnosed with bladder cancer that killed him 6 months later this memorial is shifting the narrative to where it needs to be shifted not as what
12:35 am
has what happened but what is happening the gormley family is still waiting for payment from the victims compensation fund which was set up to help survivors you won't see any names written on this memorial that's because the list of sick and dying is still growing and could soon eclipse the nearly 3000 people who were killed on september 11th that as funds that were set aside by congress to help victims are drying up. it's estimated as many as a half 1000000 people were exposed to the toxic dust that filled the air for months after the attack and it's not just 1st responders who are getting sick but also those who volunteered went to school or worked in the area. the bearish mcgarry law firm now represents 12000 people from all over the country whose illness has been linked to 911 exposure and they say they hear from new victims every day we're seeing many people in the 911 community who have not one but 2 and 3 cancers
12:36 am
doctors tell me they have never seen this before in february officials overseeing the victims' fund announced they were running out of money and would have to drastically cut payouts to victims but advocates are already pushing congress for more fun down we belonged to on september 16th 2001 when we were told there was a 3 of the water was safe to drink and yet now with fighting for health care and compensation. from the government the very government who lied to us a government that promised to never forget the horror and the courage seen that day and a community who with this memorial is promising to remind them kristen salumi al jazeera new york. for the 1st time in the 94 year history of the u.s. national spelling bee competition there has been an 8 way. an

to show $1000.00 migrants trying to cross the border trump said he'll impose tariffs on goods from mexico unless it stops illegal immigration he's warned that the 5 percent tariff will be enforced from june 10th and will be increased every month until something is done let's take a look at how these tariffs weigh impact us mexico trade a number of industries could be hit with the auto industry looking most vulnerable automakers ship more than $52000000000.00 worth of vehicles to the u.s. from mexico and assembly part simply plants that is last year another $32000000000.00 in auto parts flowed to the u.s. from mexican factories some of the most popular vehicles sold in the u.s. are made in mexico including general motors chevrolet silverado pick up at the chevrolet blazer s.u.v. and volkswagens jetta sedan we have 2 reporters covering this developing story rosin jordan is in washington d.c. where mexico's foreign minister is headed for a spot or apple and joins us live from mexico city cement what is the but it's a reaction been there through reaction in mexico
