emergency powers to push this weapon sell through essentially a vague congressional review something that otherwise is constitutionally mandated now the administration has sided the tensions with iran without supplying any sort of adequate intelligence that there is an escalated threat so members of congress not happy with what they see as part of a larger package that will now add to the stockpiles of tens of thousands of weapons already available to saudi arabia from a standpoint of congress not only is there discomfort over this being potentially falling into the wrong hands but also the coziness of the trump administration with saudi arabia particularly given the fact that the cia has concluded that saudi arabia was responsible the highest levels of the saudi government specifically the crown prince of ordering the murder of jim hush oshie the washington post journalist and they believe for this reason as well as other human rights violation

with al-jazeera these are the top stories sudan's opposition has conditionally accepted ethiopia's prime minister as a mediator in their political deadlock with the military. it isn't hard to try to kick start negotiations protestors continue to call for civilian rule there are now reports that an opposition leader has also been detained. amnesty international says an internet blackout is also allowing the military to conceal the ongoing violence this is obviously for the reason that the government of sudan was a military gasses they know they want to hide. their crime that. the committee. meeting people analysis deeds across the capital city they beat up people. around the world with. daily basis about what's happening in sudan atmosphere of fear about mysterio sadness and i think this is not the way to govern any country
the other headlines demonstrate is in liberia's capital the protesting against rising prices and corruption they're angry over president george wears handling of the economy accuse them of poor leadership he came to power 18 months ago promising to create jobs and to tackle corruption the government is also blocked access to social media it says to maintain public safety the u.s. has impose new sanctions on iran's petrochemical industry targeting the country's largest petrochemical group over its financial support for the islamic revolution recall a guard corps elite military unit has charge of ballistic and nuclear missile programs u.s. congress is pushing back on president trump's move to fast track the sale of american weapons to saudi arabia a new york times report says the u.s. could give riyadh access to technology to produce its own high tech bombs and the u.n. says 4000000 immigrants migrants have fled the political and economic crises in venezuela most of them in the past 3 and
a half years describes the figure as alarming and says urgent help is needed and those are your headlines we're back with the news hour right after inside story. say done under pressure the african union suspends khartoum over its violent crackdown on protesters and ethiopian prime minister is in the country to try and diffuse the tension but will this all work and how much power is the military ready to give up this is inside story. it.
hello and welcome to the program i'm hala my he had seen with more than a 100 protesters killed in the past week international pressure is growing on sudan's military jointer it's a compromise with its opponents if it's leading mediation efforts to end the standoff prime minister abu ahmed says in khartoum where he's juta meet both sides the goal is for the military to hand over power to civilians but after this week's violent cracks are in the process later see little reason to trust the army they have refused further talks and say they'll continue their demonstrations. while the african union has suspended siddhant over the cracks and it won't be allowed to take part in the regional bloc unless civilians are put in charge they use says this is the only way out of the crisis but the military has been sending mixed
messages on wednesday it said it was open to negotiations with the processors. when 100000000 ask we in the transitional military council open our hands to negotiation with no purpose but the interest of the nation through which we can complete the establishment of a legitimate authority that expresses the ambitions of the sudanese revolution in all its varieties but this came just one day after they rule dates any further talks and states calling for elections within 9 months in the service are either a legitimate mandate can only made through the ballot box as a result the military council is to tight the following counseling what has been agreed and ending negotiation with the declaration of freedom and change forces secondly a call to general elections within a period that does not exceed 9 months from now with international and regional monitoring creating a necessary environment for this. well let's introduce our panel joining us from london adama ghai author of to morrow the
new africa and former information director for eco us and florence we have majority to delhi maru fellow and former african union official and back in london john a professor all of anthropology at bard college and founder of rift valley institute's a research body operating in east africa welcome to you all if i could start with you adama guy how significant would you say ethiopia's intervention in this crisis is. at least we see africans trying to help other african countries in need so this is a welcome development that the prime minister be mohammed. precisely attempts to mediate as he has tried to do between kenya and somalia
and between djibouti and i think that's something that is to be looked at but defunct also is that utopia is a for a guy in the country and it cannot be they want to rule the fixing do or problem of done you know that there are other big players behind the scene for instance a saudi other bia immunity. it give to that is ordering at the moment the chairmanship of the african union so those are important players and beyond them you have the african union you have the united nations and the of western countries that include of course china that me have a seat because it has been a major player in supporting the regime of president bashir there collapsed on april 11th so i think that is an attempt which is good dissolute but you need to expand it and ensure that there is students behind the diplomacy that is undertaken
by mr ok it is another danger though that we do have too many cooks in the kitchen at this point says atomic i was mentioning we did have this you to promote sic turkish from the african union as certainly ethiopia has has got in there straight off the bat but there are other countries who have an interest and a very significant state in here given this situation today tomorrow do you think that. the african union's intervention at this point is not going to be enough given there are so many other regional powers up play. yes hello i think the point you're making is correct for the fact that the horn of africa now is the proxy battlefield for many are too many actors too big ones to be easily heeding to unified voice from
africa or the horn of africa or mediation by one country clearly the 1st one. with the last. unified voice unified all vision from the un from out there after the european union united states and so on which is playing actually a different kind of role this will be. less likely the. elites seeing this country initiative will work generally speaking to so welcome. the african union has. voiced its polish him and he is attempting this arc but this country would be after the axis is you don't want to ask too big too many and there are 2 heads i don't know i'm not going to hear i've
done to sorry to cut you off my heart john royal if i could turn to you now would you agree with this assessment there are good intentions from the african union that essentially this problem is now too large and too international in scope well i think you would look at the afternoon is record i mean it's it's obviously correct that they should have suspended saddam for membership and they've done this before to other countries with mixed results but not a mouse quite right in saying there's an awful lot unpack in terms of the national interest both of the neighbor countries and member countries of a you and the international players and i think that. the ahmed is one leader in the region who has credibility because of the astonishing transformation under his leadership in ethiopia but whether he can do the same thing in sudan i think it's symbolically important that he's gone and we await to see what he said both to
the leaders of the transitional military council and to the leaders of the civilian movement a response to me with well interestingly that you've raised that point joined while there has been much made of the situation particularly on social media that. has indeed met with leaders of the transitional council but one key leader of the transitional council was not there we are of course talking about mohammed's drug lord or head as he's known the. individual he's deemed to be the real person in charge she certainly has these rapid support forces under his command general what would you say this signifies in terms of. a realistic way forward through dialogue if this individual was knots at present at these talks.
well i suppose the hope is that the other members of the transitional military council are attempting to militarize him and possibly to blame the rapid sport forces for the violence which they were indeed the main perpetrators of but it may just be seen as tact he may have refused to meet them i think we really can't possibly know but what is undoubtedly true is he is the leader of the r.s.s. the rebels forces they were not the only but the main perpetrators of the massacre earlier this week which was an act of really unusual violence i mean a lot of people were killed we know at least a 100 people were killed many women raped people with one of the nile this is actually a body count higher than that of many of the insurgencies elsewhere in the region although of course it's eclipsed by the history of this regime or it's because a regime in darfur itself where hundreds of thousands of people have been killed
over the last 20 years down a guy what are your thoughts of the likelihood of. sitting down to dialogue do you think this is likely perhaps behind the scenes he may turn back to mediators such as the theory of prime minister. i think suspect that. this person who has been behind atrocitus t.v. it is not just in death food but this past week on monday when almost over 100 people it has been said have been killed after a peaceful demonstration in the name of democracy that this person is out of the game because sudan is a country that is known for in a meeting in a minute imported to leaders who are problematic and you recall that mr bashir has
been ousted after. 30 years in power and nobody is talking about him anymore i think that the dissolution would come from balls were not tainted by blood and the busy fact 2 that. it busy has met the person with no means of the. do one leaving the country. is not to be is not something that should be considered as busy secondary i do believe that you need to have a partner with whom you can talk and discuss which solution and. a way forward that will be agreeable by the international community many will not want to talk to this criminal who have killed the people so being a rough person even though you may have the support of egypt and other alternative religion is not the way forward and last one to do this i do believe mr ahmed as a lot of stake in this mediation that is doing because with what he has achieved in
the id court i have met him 2 years ago who during the turn of forum we have seen the thought formation if he pulls this crisis out and fix it and appears as the one with given a chance for the military to exit which is the right way forward i do believe we may be considered as a party. sure winner this year of the nobel prize it could at least vote for it because it is middle lot of inroads in democracy and opening up is country and in playing regional rule i think that that does perhaps somewhat far away to talk of nobel prizes given that certainly we're still waiting on hearing what's come of these efforts but i mean realistically where's the incentive for b r me to step back and say ok we'll hand over power i guess we've heard there have been these atrocities committed certainly a very violent crackdown by various factions of the military where is their
incentive to turn around and say ok hands up or just hand over power. yeah but the military they realized that they have really a small window of opportunity here because the longer they try to cling to power even with the support of those alternatives in regime of. egypt saudi arabia and emits evidence that we are committed to be against them they have learned their juvenile she didn't know the job put it seems of africa they have seen many leaders we have been in power and we have been ousted and we have exerted peacefully the likes of mugabi zuma and others there to be considered so if they want to insist i think they will create the condition of a civil war and i suspect also once again we have to look far ahead if i mention
this number of his friends that's something that one has to analyze in the long run it's a possibility but also the who was it isn't it may be this some of these asian of zimbabwe of this country of sudan because recall in 99 to one when the mamma said but it was in power in. somalia it was almost the same situation but because he tried to get into power that created what domestically that we still witness in some somalia the sensing may happen into student if ever the minute any people who are in charge at the moment in a further condition under sun that their time is over they have not managed property of the economy they have numbers politically the situation and the walled in against them at this stage they have to exit and allow others to take over the reins of power ok my heart attack that they would you agree with this assessment that it is time for the military to stand down and they have an incentive to do so
. let me say this 1st that if your assessments for missing and nobel to be satisfied for now. then i have to point is that i've received in my opinion in the c.m.c. special you have the key then either miscalculation that the sudanese army is similar to did your shot which is not. they give me enjoy a lot of interest from western and middle eastern forces so it's not going to be support life support to the sudanese army to gauge the kind of support base your. game so far and sustain itself would not insist on i think that it is a tendency to look at this as an example egyptian army as example and you know being poor is that he's a confrontation and the confrontation continues the way it's now the people are
really i mean we have serious problems and i would miss the i want to end the element of the t.n.c. we ordered the public in general because the protests are going to continue that added element to this in different process rebuys and. ok this will not come to the legs and let me add another point. with regard to the forces that are supporting this and see me not see any sense to look at g.m. and now yemen either didn't it's a disaster and the reason we have forgotten it is it was instigated by you expect similar situation could happen in sudan of course for big bucks i think that is the need for instance by this element within the m.c.c. only if it's comes from policy that i've highly polished and also has.
pressure and the leverage on the middle eastern forces that are active in sudan not . only incentive to mislead the transition will have to be a big sense where civilians and many will come together to discuss the future of saddam and the armed forces should go back to back its place in the box and it has 2 men saying on meet the. national security of the country beyond let the army come north all consider itself are the goddamn of unity of saddam while the people are already about in the highest level up in the spanish and the distance to control the future of saddam ok tell me how can i get your reaction to that. well i mean that's that's the optimistic scenario very much to be hoped for i think one point about the army is as dr murray correctly says it's not really comparable
with the egyptian army. it's reflective of become an alliance between the regular armed forces the armed forces of nist the national intelligence organization and the rabid support forces and the rebels of all forces are sort of monster created by the government over the last 20 years as a counter-insurgency force in darfur which has now come home to roost if you like and i think the question is who is best and can they actually assert their authority over amity i mean it's said that there's pressure on him to resign that he's resisting it and i think the the the somalis now are in the truly disaster scenario saddam will be a war between different factions of the armed forces in the center of the country because of course his a to war in sudan has been on the periphery in darfur which has spawned this terrible violence and in other parts on the borders of south sudan
sometimes in eastern sudan this is the 1st time that the center has seen this these levels of violence and there's now a real conversation for the for the state which is not simply the army versus civilians there are interests on both sides i think we also have to weigh up the real importance of the support for the. let's say for the time being for the transitional military council from egypt saudi arabia. these this involvement is is very deep these are all military regimes of course and there are even there are some of those stories sudanese proxy forces fighting in yemen on behalf of saudi arabia so there's a sort of intimate relation between the armed forces of this these 3 countries which will be hard to disassemble under sustained civil campaign
events. let us hope so i mean. who is one of the leaders of the civilian movement has said about sitting a thought to me that you can in the city and in khartoum but the whole country is now sits in ok now that may be true because the current movement started out psychotrauma started up roads as an old industrial city in sudan and spread to other cities in the central area so it's not something confined courtroom we don't really know what's happening in these other places because another thing to members concentration is there's a news blackout but a serious suppression of news media including of course. this isn't deeds and everything is if i was not clear where i'm sorry to cut you off we are in the time moments of this debate i am interested in exploring this aspect of the supports of the t.n.c. the transitional military council and the various factions mahara to tell him are
you had said that it's unlike the egyptian army because there is no support from the west that we are seeing significant amounts of support from the united arab emirates and saudi arabia estimated the tune of $3000000000.00. it is as i have the axes changed because the west does not appear to want any part of this fight it's the united states the u.k. the european union these countries organizations are very quick to condemn but very reluctant to play any part in this is the new dynamic 9 knots bringing in supports or condemnation from the west but certainly the new axis of support now lies very much in the gulf in the middle east. as i think the main question is what is the strategic interest of the west and middle
eastern m.p. in sudan of course the western slap in the interest on egypt is a much much long term and it has complicated history which i don't want to go now but it is much longer deep in terms of in that statement and so on and so on on the armed forces and we are now is it's not. done in my opinion will not be stable. continue the fragmentation will continue to has already fragment. down school and other places in how they. have been claiming for a little at least some on me and in the eastern conference. as we speak for most additionally but all together to the touch of agreement. on this part just keep calm and fartman vision police now the i'm 40 is not as monolithic
as you are you seeing in egypt or else and i felt it's come upon the money for your violence through the temple in the 1st place against you was a takeover or civilian power if it was a city young aboriginal through the koran institution the vice president should have stayed there all this should i be the civilian government a condition to use national unity where everyone weak and no bullshit now the army is doing. on this additional money that is now moving and flying the government which is not your strong party ok where in the dying seconds of this debate adama guy if he was in one sentence do you think any media creation mediation attempts can succeed or is it over for the protesters. i think the magician is useful at least it gives
a window of opportunity for the parties to sort out politically the crisis other way that will lead to military violence with the consequences that would be bad for everybody i do believe also that the african union as an institution not under mr el-sisi the president of egypt who has a side in this conflict should as an institution under the peace and security council come up with a solution to help the sudanese get out of this. crisis so that is may affect the whole region of eastern even northern africa the whole of the continent after the because this kind of course is we cannot allow them to fester ok and 4 say that will have to be the final words thank you very much indeed see all our panelists adamah guy margarita there in morrow and john royal and thank you too for watching you can see the program again any time by this is

also the u.n. issues a warning over the staggering number of venezuelans the scope of the crisis in their home. and maryam namazie and london with all the news from europe including a sunset riverboat of the world's most powerful man as president putin accuses the united states of starting dangerous trade was an unspoken rafael nadal is inside of a record 12 title of the french open the defending the 2 roger federer in straight sets in the semi. opposition has conditionally accepted ethiopia's prime minister as a mediator in their political deadlock with the military. spent the day in sudan he met leaders from a coalition representing protesters calling for civilian rule though there are reports now of one of those leaders being detained they told the ethiopian leader
yes they're open to mediation but under certain conditions and that would include recognizing the violent break up of the sit in demonstration on monday as a crime as well as the release of all political prisoners and also met some members of the military council in khartoum but noticeably absent was general mohamed gallo who leads the so-called rapid support forces the ones have been blamed for most of the atrocities committed. during the crackdown which is left $100.00 people dead stephanie decker. a picture is slowly emerging of what happened in sudan on monday the 3rd of june the. grief fills this hospital room. bodies lined the floor. and internet blackout imposed by the military council means mobile phone footage has been slow to make it out. but everything points to
a gruesome bloody day a peaceful sit in that ended in this. with reports of rapes beatings and killings at the hands of the paramilitary rapid support forces were told many people are still missing. in an effort to resolve the crisis in prime minister abu ahmed arrived in khartoum on friday for meetings with the military council and protest 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. that we talked about the rapid support forces an amnesty international's call for the immediate withdrawal of those forces from sudan straits secretary general crimean i do says what we have witnessed in the past 3 days is horrific and barbaric the senseless killing of protesters must be stopped immediately and those responsible for the bloodbath including at command level must be held fully accountable for their dreadful actions we heard from rupert coville as well spokesman for the u.n.
high commissioner for human rights who says sudan's rapid support forces must be held accountable for years of human rights violations. we've made a request for more to the government to go to the un human rights monitoring team into the country as quickly as possible. that's one thing i think you know the thing is to rein meaning the rapid support force. immediately because this group has a very very checkered history. and appears to be at the center of the violence as we count abilities in premature incident with. the rapid support force crew members of the former challenger we were implicated in the horrendous abuses at least an hour or $2300.00 words and again you know after the rapids of course was formed in 2013 they were. in other words really
serious violations killings rapes destruction of the looters and so on in darfur again and 20302040 i think you know one has to take one's hat off to the protesters being in a remarkably restrained and you know really exemplary in the way they carried out their protest since the beginning of the year. in the face of quite severe propagations the worst which came. when i have a look now at why many are seeing the prime minister ahmed as someone who actually could ease the crisis in sudan became africa's youngest head of state when he took office in april of last year in just a few months he implemented rapid reforms including a lifting of a state of emergency and ordering the release of thousands of political prisoners has also allowed dissidents to return home and blocked hundreds of websites and
t.v. channels but his biggest achievement so far is ending the state of war with eritrea by agreeing to give up disputed territory on the border. we're going to talk to a protest in. shams who's on the line for us and thank you for talking to us do you have any hope now that the prime minister of ethiopia priester stepped in and they could bring some mediation going on. hi i do have hope but i'm also worried because it's not the. militia groups that. are the offenders are one of. the statements made by. my associate that. after. the r.t.f. so i don't know how that would be but i am. what the records of all forces have done me in this past week and what people are
calling for them to be held accountable for does it make you stop does it make you think i'm not going to go out there and protest or is the cause too important to you. right now definitely not on the street goes is the other way like a civil disobedience that will start on sunday it actually started because many pharmacies that are already closed hospitals. so there are other ways to protest than protesting on the street because at this moment it's very dangerous to see that happen we've seen children getting shot on the street at this point we have to try other measures but do you worry that momentum will be lost because so much was with the protesters for so long and there was this feeling for certainly looks like the protesters wouldn't step back. that momentum because we lost here. no absolutely not the momentum got stronger other people were not even with the
protester not believing what we were doing are with us now because it happened in front of them become too real i can pick up on this right now and right now the brothers actually united even more. now than ever before to end it and to start a new chapter. ok thanks for taking the time to talk to us today do appreciate it to other news in the u.s. as impose new sanctions on iran's petro chemical industry that targeting the country's largest petrochemical group over its financial support for teheran's islamic revolutionary guard corps that is the elite military unit. has me in charge of iran's ballistic and nuclear missile programs and the same group that was added to washington's is to terror organizations back in april. u.s. congress meanwhile is pushing back on donald trump's move to fast track the sale of
weapons to saudi arabia a new york times report says the u.s. could give riyadh access to technology to produce its own versions of high tech bombs these precision guided bombs are the ones being used in the war in germany remember trying to clear a national security emergency last month bypassing congress to sell billions in arms to saudi arabia and the u.s. more on all of this with our white house correspondent kelly wallace as the details of this arms deal come out there is frustration an outrage on capitol hill by both democrats as well as members of the president's own republican party there is concern about saudis having access to this american technology when it comes to these precision guided bombs there is fear that eventually the saudis could use this technology to produce their own weapons and there is concern as well that this could be used in the saudi led conflict in yemen now last month we know that the trumpet ministration took the rare step using emergency powers to push this weapons
sell through essentially a bathing congressional review something that otherwise is constitutionally mandated now the administration has sided the tensions with iran without supplying any sort of adequate intelligence that there is an escalated threat so members of congress not happy with what they see as part of a larger package that will now add to the stockpiles of tens of thousands of weapons already available to saudi arabia from a standpoint of congress not only is there discomfort 2 over this being potentially falling into the wrong hands but also the coziness of the trunk administration with saudi arabia particularly given the fact that the cia has concluded that saudi arabia was responsible the highest levels of the saudi government specifically the crown prince of ordering the murder. show she the washington post journalist and they believe for this reason as well as other human rights violations this is not
