are worth a lot of air and the man who sits at the top of the chain of command is egypt's current leader preston uphill for the c.c. the former army chief ousted morsi in a military coup in 2013 and since then has locked up thousands of people as political prisoners this is the outcome that the egyptian government kinds wanted for years morsi and also for other brotherhood leaders like mommy. they don't want necessarily to execute people because of. the execution it would create but they want. there now calls for an international investigation into morsi steffen court while his life in prison seemed entirely nor by the one priyanka gupta disease. or a challenge looks at the rise and fall of mohamed morsi me mohamed morsi sailed into the presidency of egypt on the winds of
5:05 am
a people's revolution demanding change in 2012 he became egypt's 1st ever democratically elected president the 1st civilian to hold the office morsi was born in 1901 he spent his adult life 1st as an engineering professor then as a member of parliament and a political prisoner the egyptian revolution in 2011 set the stage for morsi to reach the pinnacle of power from the start of his critics accused him of placing his allegiance with the muslim brotherhood and not the country morsi made a point of repeatedly promising to be a president for all egyptians his opponents however claim he tried to consolidate his power by giving himself for thought see above the judiciary and dominating the governments with muslim brotherhood members. morsi said his actions were to combat counter revolutionary forces led by the so-called deep state that wanted to kill egypt's nascent to. crecy those forces included members of the military as well as
5:06 am
regional powers namely the u.a.e. and saudi arabia who were vehemently opposed to the arab spring and june 23rd seen in scenes reminiscent of the revolution huge crowds of egyptians filled square calling for their president to step down it was a culmination of the rebel campaign a movement which was born a few months prior and was later revealed to being supported by abu dhabi morsi supporters took to the streets to which emboldened him and he refused to step down instead he made an offer of national reconciliation including forming a new government of technocrats that offer was rejected by the army which days later deposed him ending egypt's historic but brief experiment with democracy stripped of the title of president morsi swiftly became a political prisoner once again he was ultimately tried and sentenced to death for allegedly working with foreign groups and crossing
5:07 am
a mass jailbreak when guards or killed. numerous human rights groups as well as british parliamentarians and his family complained of intentional medical neglect and warns that morsi is imprisonment conditions would lead to his death if not improved to the end he was defiant rejecting the court's authority and insisting he was the legitimate president of egypt elected by the people. of a muslim brotherhood has told al jazeera that their security forces will bury morsi in cairo late at night denying him a proper funeral lecithin on that has really only home has in place of course this is a sad day not only for the muslim brothers but also for the egyptian people and for his family and for arabs and muslims and especially for the palestinian people who witnessed how most he stood with them in the war there's no doubt that history will remember it as a day morsi was martyred after he was killed by the military coup he said well you
5:08 am
know lawrence is a professor of political science and international affairs at george washington university joins us live from washington d.c. thank you very much so. the way mohamed morsi and his family are being treated even in death what message is the current egyptian government trying to set. well it's very clear message of rejection of authoritarian control of the muslim brotherhood of the former president of his family of his colleagues the message is relenting and very clear that they do not tolerate any kind of dissent and it's important to point out that morsy was defiant he was defiant as president and he was defiant in prison and so this in part led to the circumstances that he found himself in that said the regime in place now refused medical care for a chronically diabetic man who had a heart condition as
5:09 am
a connection to that someone who had liver disease and kept him in solitary confinement 23 hours a day which according to un guidelines amounts to torture for years and refused family visits and food and everything else so you know whether or not they murdered him they certainly were criminally negligent and violated basic standards of how to detain prisoners violating his human rights and and the denials coming out now are not very convincing so when you talk about those denials right this is a this is a former president and a former head of state who was elected would you expect to to hear the science human rights groups would you expect to hear other nations other heads of states to call this out to ask for some sort of an investigation into what happened. i think so i think egypt to
5:10 am
a large degree has been falling out of favor with western nations the u.s. several times in the last few years has cut egyptian assistance only route to restore most of it but on human rights grounds i think patience is wearing a little bit thin with egypt with the with saudi arabia followed in the killing and so i would expect some condemnation from western governments but obviously. that's only bare so much fruit because obviously his regime is the one in place and that's the one that western governments have to deal with so most of the criticism will come from the press i mean human rights groups so when you know we were just talking about how mohamed morsi was treated and prison if he was treated that way what does that say about how other thousands of other political prisoners are treated and egyptian prisons and jails. why i think there's 2 sides to that story on the other hand morsi was refused to many things that others are permitted
5:11 am
so in egypt as in many other parts of the world when the family visits they can bring you food they can bring you medicine and this happens in egypt but it didn't happen for morsi and he was singled out a number of other ways that said overall the conditions in egyptian prisons are quite bad we have tens of thousands of people imprisoned either directly on political grounds or or indirectly because there are more or less prisoners of conscience including much of the leadership and rank and file of the muslim brotherhood and that will continue to be a harsh circumstances of detention for these gentlemen that don't see any improvements coming so far this regime has been generally resistant to any kind of criticism generally when they've made concessions to the american government it had to do with dual nationals american citizens in detention that sort of thing certainly they made a few concessions regarding reporters went with that pressure was put on but
5:12 am
overall the regime has been staunchly defensive and authoritarian and ruthless at times and i don't expect that to change anytime soon i am lawrence thank you for your insight and joining us from washington appreciate it. now in november 2017 mohamed morsi spoke about the conditions of his imprisonment he said he had no access to lawyers or medical treatment the since the 20th of september i've been in prison and i've been isolated there glassman is in front of me i tried to speak to the court about different problems but the court decided not to hear or see me after so many days when they turned on the lights it was very painful i can't see the court except in shadows sometimes ahead of witnesses and sometimes i don't but i'm speaking very clearly i've got a lot to say to the court i haven't seen a doctor and i haven't seen my lawyers have
5:13 am
a right to be seen and to be present i am in a very very bad situation if you treat me in this way i am having morsi i'm extremely worried about egypt. i'm adar was minister of planning and international cooperation during the last 2 months of orse his presidency he says his death is a criminal act. the 1st reaction is that we are. facing a complete. action of murder this is a necessary nation a crime that must be dealt this way and. a lot of people over the world have been warning against this for a long time we have members of the british parliament headed by sir tristram blunt . who tried to have a committee visit to mostly to examine his health conditions after reports of visits to rating health sure that the team will never allow a proper funeral for dr morsi i'm sure they will not allow any any kind of
5:14 am
gathering for the people for an event like that they will never allow him to be buried properly in his his home village which will be definitely out of their control. my expectation is that they were they will try to bury quietly that he won't area where only his family will be present maybe they they won't even allow it 70 m. in this is. they can do anything but i don't think they will let they will allow any occasion where a lot of people could be gathering for a funeral and a major event like that. for me is an associate professor of political science at long island university and author of egypt any contradictions of liberalism she says a lack of international reaction is telling. what we have heard out of the united nations the united states the european leaders is silence and so the question is why is there not a call for the independent investigation of the death every world leader at the
5:15 am
hands of another now a few months ago on this very program when i when i was asked about well president micron has said that you know egyptian human rights violations will need to be accounted for well then why still france still selling great amounts of arms to egypt more so than any other western nation why does president trump here in the united states continue to say c.c. is doing a great job even in terms of the war on terror he's failing and so the question is if western nations continue to see stability in the region through the iron handed fist what we're asking ourselves is this really reality he's failing in the war on terror he's failing in terms of domestic stability and this the leader's death of a world leader in a prison indicates that the democratic aspirations of egyptians and arabs in general are not only lost but are no longer part of the agenda of the west towards the middle east are testers in new york in istanbul have demonstrated to show their anger over morsi apollo's calls for the muslim brotherhood for egyptians living abroad to march in front of embassies and condemn they call the killing mosques in
5:16 am
turkey will hold funeral prayers for mohamed morsi on tuesday president edge of type word one has his own personal tribute. in our eyes mohammed morsi is a martyr who lost his life while he fought for the cause he believed history will never forget the tyrants who put him in prison threaten them with the death penalty and caused his massive we formed a close friendship with him before he was elected as president and preserved that afterwards morsi who was put on trial by a court established by the code ministration and simply asked him to death gave his last breath in a courtroom and this is a symbol of the cruelty inflicted upon him and his people for years. a mere katara shake to maintain harmony all funny has tweeted we have received with deep sadness the news about the sudden death of former president dr mohamed morsi i said my sincere condolences to his family and to the egyptian people hartson is the head of the egyptian revolutionary council which was the main organization advocating for
5:17 am
morsi to be reinstated as president he says more of his condition had deteriorated over the years he was in solitary confinement he suffered from diabetes he lost sight in one ali and we made this public through the press conferences that we held as the egyptian revolutionary council alongside with other human rights organizations and lawyers it's something human rights watch has pointed to we sent letters and met with policymakers and with agencies of the united nations there was sympathy but very little action on the part of the international community but more importantly no response from the egyptian regime which we hold responsible for what's happened to dr morsi responsibility goes to the highest level of the state to see himself to the security forces and the judiciary that is an all move the military they are all responsible for what's happening to political dissidents and today to egypt's 1st democratically 1st democratically elected president. more
5:18 am
ahead of the news hour including on how the latest on a triple suicide attack and northeast nigeria and staying under the radar how surveillance savvy protesters in hong kong are hiding their digital footprints and $2000000.00 fans at the streets of toronto peter we'll have the latest on the n.b.a. title celebration. that is sending about $1000.00 additional troops to the middle east pentagon says it's in response to iran's hostile behavior announcement comes just hours after the u.s. military released new pictures that it says shows iranian revolutionary guards are moving an unexploded mine from a japanese owned vessel it was one of the 2 oil tankers where there was an explosion last week and the call of oman castro has more from washington d.c. . the announcement came from the u.s.
5:19 am
acting secretary of defense patrick shanahan in which he said about $1000.00 additional u.s. troops are going to the middle east now he cited recent iranian attacks which he says validates the reliable credible intelligence the u.s. has received on hostile behavior by iranian forces and their proxy groups these additional $1000.00 u.s. troops is an escalation beyond the $1500.00 that were already heading toward that region in recent months accompanied by u.s. warships now on the diplomatic front the white house responding to your ron's announcement earlier in the day that he would soon be in breach of the 2050 nuclear accord said that there was a need for greater international pressure as the u.s. forges on work with its maximum pressure campaign against iran since withdrawing from that nuclear chord last year and u.s.
5:20 am
secretary of state has said that all options remain on the table including military responses but as far as the u.s. congress goes that response to run has been much more measured a declaration of war would require congressional approval and it and it is notable in this announcement from the pentagon that these $1000.00 additional u.s. troops will serve defensive purposes only that the u.s. does not seek conflict with iran regardless congress is is preparing to debate how to make clear to the president that he cannot go to war without iran with iran without congressional approval that debate expected to happen this week or next. month all as the author and editor of grey zone project dot com an online news website dedicated to original investigative journalism and analysis he joins us live from washington d.c. max thank you very much so. about a 1000 additional troops to the middle east how would you characterize. this latest
5:21 am
move by the u.s. . what's the message the u.s. is sending that it intends to escalate it every step possible these 1000 troops are actually complementing 10000 troops that were authorized along with patriot missile batteries last month and what the u.s. is doing is stepping up its maximum pressure strategy in a show of force that's part of a 2 year long undeclared war on iran that includes what iranian foreign minister zarif has it correctly called financial terrorism and at this point iran feels cornered it is taking its own measures to respond and i think we're in an extremely dangerous scenario where a conflict could break out something that extreme elements in the trump administration might actually be excited for so if this why do you think that a an escalation is more likely than they're actually being some sort of renegotiation of the nuclear deal you think it will lead me to stop there do you
5:22 am
think that that's the case. well 1st of all. the you know trump administration is claiming that this is in response to iran's plan to enrich its nuclear stockpile after it broke the nuclear agreement and violated the agreement that it had been agreed upon at the u.n. security council which was completely unprecedented the europeans failed to do business and surrendered to secondary sanctions so again iran feels cornered i think an incident that occurred in 1988 where iran flight 655 a civilian airliner was downed by a u.s. naval that vessel after that vessel had been exchanging fire with iranian vessels is really instructive here and really shows how far and dangerous things could get if this scenario for grasses and it appears that the u.s. is accusing iran of various acts of war that appear baseless to me and whoever was responsible for those tanker attacks in the gulf of oman has successfully disrupted
5:23 am
historic talks between japan and iran as well as that that could have deescalated the situation in kyrgyzstan ok so you're saying it's baseless and obviously the u.s. is presenting this because they say that this this is the proof and again that that's a that's a big if but let's just say that iran actually did do what the u.s. is accusing them why would they have done that what would you see their end game being for doing this because it's not unheard of for them to have to accept that. absolutely and what iran would be doing in that scenario is showing the u.s. that it can disrupt the flow of oil throughout the world that it can meet out harsh consequences and that it will respond to this campaign of maximum pressure and i think it is likely that iran if it hasn't already responded will respond to brutal sanctions tromp implementing a sabotage team on iran hashing out plans to sabotage iran's electricity grid
5:24 am
stoking tensions inside iran through the people's army k. this fanatical group which is actually put trumps national security advisor john bolton on its payroll and i think there's no way to deny that the trump administration has embarked on a strategy of regime change which iran will never accept and that's why i think it's such a dangerous scenario right now all right paul we appreciate your insight i very much thank you. prime minister says time is running out for european leaders to save the 2015 nuclear deal that's after iran's atomic energy organization announced it would breach uranium stockpile limit set under the agreement within 10 days or sent of our i reports from tehran. a theatrical build up for a final warning to the european signatories of the 2015 nuclear agreement the message delivered by the spokesman for iran's atomic energy agency that time is
5:25 am
running out then i. will mortician my countdown has started in 10 days time on june 27 we will exceed the 300 kilogram limit of enrich uranium allowed under the nuclear deal off the dots we will continue to increase the speed of production drastically. oh. and there's a nuclear deal iran is allowed to have 300 kilograms of 3.67 percent enriched uranium at any given time inside the country. anything in excess of that amount must be sold internationally but since the united states withdrew from the deal a may of last year it has also introduced restrictions on purchasing any material from iran's nuclear program which means iran's stockpile will continue to increase . early last month president hassan rouhani announced tehran will stop exporting its excess uranium and heavy water for
5:26 am
a 60 day period during which time it wants the remaining signatories of the deal to honor their obligations as they announce are not going to break the agreement there are going to go as far as possible to the threshold because when they break the agreement they will lose european support and for now this is not the iranian strategy to completely you know go for clear violation and break of the agreement a number of high ranking foreign officials have been visiting to iran in an effort to save this deal including a rare visit by japanese prime minister shinzo who told iran's supreme leader that he had brought a letter from president donald trump. but ayatollah ali khamenei said trump did not deserve a response how many who has alternate authority in iran says the government will not negotiate any further. iran maintains it has kept up its end of the deal 15
5:27 am
reports produced by the international atomic energy agency have concluded that tehran is complying with the nuclear agreement iran says the future of this nuclear deal is now in the hands of the 3 main european signatories france britain and germany and president rouhani has warned that the stability and security of the entire region is at stake but many analysts say that without the united states it's difficult to see how this deal can work for such a party al-jazeera to iran the united nations says the war in yemen is becoming even more violent with 250000 people displaced this year alone yet on what margaret this war into frangela the u.n. led peace initiative is under threat a saudi coalition asked them battling who the rebels for 4 years who it says are supported by iran and if james bay supports from the u.n. the security council heard that peace efforts in yemen are still stalled special envoy martin griffiths is struggling to push forward an agreement to redeploy

watching al-jazeera let's make out the top stories right now on egypt's 1st democratically elected president mohamed morsi has collapsed and died while. appearing in court gyptian state t.v. says a 67 year old muslim brotherhood leader suffered a heart attack and the muslim brotherhood said in a statement that it helped the current president and. his government responsible for what they call the planned criminal killing of morsi and his son says egyptian authorities have refused permission for morsy to be buried and the family plot. says it's appalling an extra $1000.00 troops to the middle east in response to what it calls iran's hostile behavior earlier the u.s. military released new pictures purporting to show iranian revolutionary guards removing an unexploded mine from a japanese owned tanker. iran's military has denied involvement in the explosions

on oil tankers in the gulf of oman last week and its chief of staff says it is if it decided to block the strait of hormuz it could do so the straits a vital gateway for the global oil industry and tensions have been rising there over a series of attacks on tankers in the region so. as long as no one causes problems for the security of the straits of hormuz we will preserve its security and as long as the islamic republic is exported the only others will be securely exported so if we decide to block the straits of hormuz we'll do it in a way that even a drop of oil well past the street. place in hong kong have changed their position on mass protests against a controversial extradition bill no longer referring to them broadly as riots more now from sarah clarke who joins us live from hong kong so her place held a press conference last night changing their wording the characterization of what actually happened what are they saying now what does this mean.
5:35 am
well this is a big win for the protests is this is been one of the key demands number one has been the extradition bill be withdrawn number to carry land resign and number 3 to recategorize. protests i should say not to be talked about as a right. because a riot simply means hefty or heavier penalties for those people who are charged during that particular protest so instead the police commissioner last night said he will not categorize anything that happened after $330.00 on wednesday as a riot instead he said there were a minority of people who will be charged with related offenses so far $32.00 protesters were arrested on that day 5 were charged with rioting related charges and there were 10 charged with crimes so this is a big win for those protesters who again as i mentioned didn't want wednesday's protest. a riot simply because of those heavier fines and jail sentences attached to those charges and kerry has not spoken publicly since saturday do we

expect to hear from her from carrying them today. we know the executive council meetings today canceled we know that the legislative council meetings are also canceled but every choose to carry land does hold a media briefing by city updates on the wake of hades this should happen this morning we haven't had any confirmation as yet whether or not she will do that briefing there are some rumors or suggestions that she may do something a softer noon as you mentioned she's now got a public apology on sunday that was bar a stipend on saturday was her last appearance when she did that press conference stating that the bill would be suspended or put on hold for now but last night we had about a 1000 people marched to her office which is all my right hand side this is the at the entrance to her office and this is a calling for greater communication now as i mentioned before there are 3 demands withdrawal of the extradition bill carey lamb to resign and for this the protests

and winds that not to be titled a ride so the protesters have had one win so far all right sir clark live for us in hong kong thank you. and the protests have been coronated through social media mentors who use technology to spread word about their actions and many of them have also learned how to cover their digital tracks robin bryant has more from hong kong . mostly young and technologically savvy these protesters are experts at using social media to organize themselves but they're also aware the tech tools they're using can be used to trace them. eunice is a college student who took part in wednesday's mass protest that ended in violence since then she's being careful to stay digitally dark deleting messages and chats from her phone afraid that police could use them against her they tried to help in her life on sunday will know what the next step of the city's and what the last

step of the other people is what they feel are teenagers like other protesters when she travels she doesn't use her travel swipe card which is linked to the individual owner instead buying single journey tickets activists using popular messaging apps like telegram careful to a raise their conversation straight afterwards and turn off the tracking functions on their phones it's fueled the debate here about what you can say online in a society that allows free expression in hong kong as elsewhere it's a crime to incite someone to violence but what happens if you simply encourage others to join a protest that then becomes violent anyone who attended and talks about it online is potentially in trouble and always have to understand for us technologist that nothing is absolutely secure. in especially if you are facing

a very technically savvy police force and so on they awarded to state they need to you have to be careful stella another student knows that her worried parents persuaded her not to attend wednesday's protest. so she worked from home on her device and helped by putting different groups in touch with each other although again yes i'm scared but it won't stop me from doing it there are more important things than that there are people struggling on the front line and i feel like i owe it to. she like many opponents to this controversial law seemingly prepared to make a stand and take risks they wouldn't have taken before mcbride al-jazeera hong kong xi jinping is planning to visit north korea this weekend what could be the 1st such trip by a chinese president and 14 years except that an invitation from north korea's leader kim jong un enchanted wherry to nuclearization talks between cam and us
