groups the african union suspended sudan on thursday until the military hands over power to civilians the military council would have a stake in what happens in sudan in the future. many of these people who are now leading the transitional military council are people who have been leading the sudanese military for a very long period of time this is a military that has been involved in vii's atrocities various abuse particularly in darfur back in 20032004 there are questions of accountability there for you said one of the strongest and loudest voices in this process of transition and there are course already for accountability and for justice but for now there appears to be no accountability and no justice a general strike is planned for sunday the opposition wants change they don't want military rule an era of oppression hangs over the streets of khartoum that's how it's been described to us there is

a sense of unease and fear but there is also resilience and little certainty about how things are going to move forward stephanie decker al-jazeera amnesty international says of the military council must withdraw all members of the rapid support forces from the streets secretary general kofi knight who says what we've witnessed in the past 3 days is horrific and barbaric the senseless killing of protesters must be stopped immediately of those responsible for the bloodbath including at command level must be held fully accountable for the dreadful actions . rupert coville is the spokesperson for the u.n. high commissioner for human rights he joins us now via skype from geneva report thanks for being with us the commission has said they continue to be gravely concerned about the situation in sudan but what's to be done about it. well i think a number of things we requested for us to the government to get the u.n. human rights management team into the country as quickly as possible. but one thing
10:53 pm
i think the other thing is to rein meeting the rounds of golf course. immediately because this group has a very very checkered history. and it has been at the center of the violence as we probably have been just a few moments ago talking about amnesty international calling for the withdrawal of the rapid support forces accountability is crucial is that it avoiding further bloodshed here yeah absolutely and i can't put it in any extremely short and you know the 1st protective out of the ransom court force you know crew members of the judge read which were implicated in the horrendous abuses of police in or 20031 ones and again they are the rapids. in 2030 they were so happily. rather than really serious violations killings rapes and destruction of villages
10:54 pm
and so on in darfur again and 20302040 because this un human rights monitoring team these talks about how difficult would it be to run with things as they are at the moment to to get such a force into sudan. well you know it wouldn't be a huge game invigorate in the small t.v. obviously we need the agreement and cooperation of the government to be requested. and they would go in and hopefully and to do everyone of any gender view to get a clearer picture of exactly what happened who's responsible. what the scale of the budget is so long and that's to go. many violations are taking place that the details are not here is a point and the sort of whole process moving towards accountability is not yet happening but as far as the un high commissioner for human rights is concerned a swift transition to civilian rule in sudan is what's most important here.
10:55 pm
absolutely and i think you know you're hearing what everyone's saying that it was that general the african union the high commissioner said they don't come up with any of the violence and that's really the only and the solution and i think you know what has to take on hat off to the protests as being in a remarkably restrained and you know really a exemplary in the way they carried out a protest since you know the beginning of the you know. in the face of the quite severe propagations which. could still to rip up any thanks for being with us rupert coville the spokesperson for the un huge high commissioner for human rights . the u.s. congress is pushing back on donald trump's moves to foster tracked the sale of american weapons to saudi arabia a new york times reports reports concern that it could give riyadh access to technology to produce its own versions of high tech bombs precision guided bombs of
10:56 pm
being used in the war in yemen president trying to plant a national security emergency last month by passing bypassing congress to so billions in all means to saudi arabia and the u.a.e. let's go live now to washington correspondent kimberly how could this the white house and can tell us more what are we to make of this complete. well congress not very happy about this in their number of reasons for that 1st of all they're concerned that this technology could fall into the wrong hands they're also concerned that if this technology gets to saudi arabia which it will we don't have a timeline on it but unless there's any effort to legislatively stop this this is moving ahead and the fear is in all of this that well it's american technology adrian that is being sent over and and adding to the stockpile of weapons that already exist that saudi arabia will then be able to use this technology to in term produce their own precision guided weapons where is the concern about these being
10:57 pm
used when it comes to the u.s. congress well it's yemen that they're really worried about the saudi led conflict there potentially there has been sort of a long effort in the u.s. congress pushing back trying to stall the sale of these weapons but as you pointed out it was donald trump who declared a national emergency citing tensions with iran as a reason to push this forward but the u.s. congress not happy about it and certainly using what little. constitutional powers given to them in terms of a check and balance to try and stop this ok kimberly many thanks indeed offices kimberly hope to live in washington. now mexico's president manuel lopez obrador says that he's optimistic that a deal can be reached with the united states the 2 sides are into the final day of talks to resolve differences over migration and trade lopez obrador says that it's a positive sign that the talks are continuing in washington the u.s. is set to impose a 5 percent tariff on all mexican goods from monday and it's threatened that could

10:59 pm
a slight pause in the number if you like during february parrott least some of it is wayland's thought that there might be a political change in the country that could lead to an improvement in the economic climate but that has not happened as we all know and the numbers continue to rise and in fact some agencies including the united nations are forecasting that that number could reach $6000000.00 by the end of this year so it is a staggering amount unprecedented amount and the vast majority of these venezuelans are not going to europe are not going to the united states are trying to they're coming here to latin america to countries like chile the u.n. has called them as well as to be given refugee status but can latin america cope well that is the big question and that is why many latin american countries are calling on the international community to come to look at to try to help to take some part of the responsibility in what is an unprecedented migration crisis for
11:00 pm
this part of the world remember we've been seeing for months thousands and thousands of central americans for example forming caravans trying to cross over into the united states from mexico but what we're seeing from that is where is far more people millions not tens of thousands coming here into latin america to countries like ecuador peru colombia especially chile and argentina in fact as we speak at this hour there is a demonstration taking place in ecuador ecuador and taking to the streets complaining that their unemployment rates are just staggering and unacceptable and top of that now they have got hundreds of thousands of venezuela in migrants so simply simply put no latin america can't cope with this this embody thanks did a lesson america has had to see in human their lives in santiago we're going to weather update next here sirrah that britain's brigs of process fails where the seeds of westminster as labor secures a narrow victory.
