4:06 pm
egypt's nascent democracy those forces included members of the military as well as 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 tower of rebel campaign a movement which was born a few months prior and was later revealed to have been 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 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
4:07 pm
allegedly working with foreign armed groups and crossing a mass jailbreak when guards were 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 or thorough and insisting he was the legitimate president of egypt elected by the people. death is being mourned by many around the world. holding funeral prayers in his honor president. and in jordan's capital amman people have expressed sadness about morphy's death offering condolences to his family and supporters is also anger at the way morsi was treated in prison. he was the 1st democratically elected president in the history of egypt to the ballot box not through coups and chaos he was elected
4:08 pm
legally i feel sorry for the egyptian people egyptian people are known as a free nation educated and free but i feel sorry for them. i feel very sad for his death he was the 1st elected president i couldn't sleep last night after i heard the news he was treated badly they tortured him and humiliated him we feel sad and we pay our condolences to his family to the egyptian people and to his supporters the people in new york also voiced their anger about the way morsi was treated since being forced from power and they gathered in times square some with yellow placards which are symbols of support for the muslim brotherhood well leaders in turkey in malaysia and in ca to pay tribute to mohamed morsi the reaction from other governments particularly in the west has been largely muted but also about the state department spokeswoman morgan will tell us it said only that they saw that the death was reported the united kingdom has issued no official
4:09 pm
comment at all germany too is quiet about morsy is death and there has been no statement from the french either well let's take this on now with me is opera who's a professor of political science at kuwait's university was a cover of welcome to the program thank you this lack of reaction from the west are you surprised. not really it's. that has been many lack of reaction over many issues. violence. towards. nations of human rights across. the west is that there are other priorities for the show being remembered most it was a pivotal figure of his time was near and you think there would be something you would think but to me the most important reaction is the one coming from human rights watch coming from human rights organizations i think that's where it matters
4:10 pm
most it seems to me that the west is feeling issues and so many tests when it comes to human rights and when it comes to people said that that many asian you're right i mean there are un institutions and human rights watch as you say who are talking about this and saying how wrong it has been but they say these things they've been saying them for many years but nobody seems to listen. well the people of the region do listen they have a pulse the people of the region and the people of egypt understand more than anybody else what has happened this death of president morsi reflects full negligence when it comes to the way he was jailed and the conditions he was living under in jail. this requires an investigation into what has happened that i think his death the way it happened with haunt the government and the political system the regime in egypt for a long time to come. down the line how it will come about has how will it come to
4:11 pm
hold it will come back the way so many other issues do have an impact this is a former president he was elected the 1st to be elected in a long history of egypt he was thrown out there rested in a coup and there was. a big issue of violations that came as a result of that particular change. he should not have been treated this way there should have been some sort of a reconciled before that there must have been a way out leaving him in jail in such a condition for 6 years with limited medical attention who is to blame isn't it the system is that there is deemed isn't it the president's right it's interesting as we're just hearing now that the u.n. is demanding a full inquiry and full investigation into what is has screwed including his time in the treatment within prison so that's your view is a good thing well i would say that we will see more reactions within the coming few
4:12 pm
days as time goes by this is could be a turning point regarding the state of human rights and the state of jails in egypt interesting as far as the lack of reaction from the west as we speak is that because they want to stir up a geo political story. they would just rather prefer the status quo to be maintained like oh you know what i mean when you say there's other progress we will need to ask the west you know why this muted reaction why in so many different places from from palestine to to other places in the region to human rights to even the situation today over iran and sanctions after the nuclear deal what i saw is so weak even in front of this rise of the rights and the attitude of president trump after all he brought the new atmosphere to the west that is more his your money but yet much more lacking in content and in the ability
4:13 pm
to implement mean was so that's one side of things but on the other side you have dictators still falling for you the situation in sudan the situation in algeria the people are still unhappy and making their voices heard and it's having an effect exactly i mean what started in 211 with the people demanding respect demanding to be representation demanding their rights demanding justice demanding economic incentives and a better life and kind of transparency in the system and accountability is still today it's still the same there is eames did not learn from the lessons of 211 did not reform did not change did not go into issues that really mattered for the citizen and what we see today with egypt tells me that the system in egypt has not learned the lesson of 211 that makes me predict that there will be other rounds and that's not the end of history should we go from saving towards you thanks very much
4:14 pm
indeed thank you. well the rest of the day's news is still ahead. including me i think minorities struggling to find sanctuary outside of china. what should a russia has had to say about the united states' decision to deploy more troops to the middle east. and in sports defending champions chile top form against japan and the corporate america those details coming up in. hong kong's me to carry was offered what she calls her most sincere apology for the way an extradition bill has been handled she's under pressure from protesters who vulcanized large demonstrations. to allow suspects to be extradited to mainland china says she had the protesters demands loud and clear but is refusing to resign
4:15 pm
fellow citizens during a large scale public perceptions over the past 2 sundays people have expressed in a peaceful and rational men their concerns about the fugitive offenders ordinance and satisfaction and this appointment with the government especially me for this i offer my most sincere apology so all people of hong kong. well there will no member of hong kong's pro-democracy movement joshua wallace says the fight against proposed changes to the extradition law is far from over no matter how president xi jinping caroline tried to ignore the requests from people outside as the voice from home considered more and more rarely action of protest will happen soon hong kong people will continue our fight even charon and our repressed rally and action is the way out and withdraws defining our protest and
4:16 pm
riots and continue we were urged to withdraw the extradition law at the same time the only way out is carol i'm sure that's done it's time for her to enjoy her retired life and her political career well let's get the latest now from sarah clarke and hope. it's her 1st apology on camera or certainly to the public she was criticized for being cowardly by not facing the public on camera until now over today she issued a sincere public apology she said she misjudged the situation she misjudged the fury and the anger on the streets of hong kong when we saw 2000000 people march on the weekend she said she was showed up most of the blame for this she said she understands the feeling of the public just as the passion of the people in hong kong but she shares that that passion she's also said that she will widely consult the various different groups about the future of the forward moving in this particular extradition go forward so certainly today has been a public personal sincere apology but what the protesters have wanted that one
4:17 pm
particular item that they want to but they also want her to resign and i want this bill scrapped and that hasn't happened today so precious is obviously responding to this and we've heard from a couple of groups already they're not happy they said none of their demands have been met they said she didn't step down and she says that the now so they're going to meet the democrats tomorrow and other democrats are the pro-democracy nor macon's in hong kong parliament they going to discuss their wife or but they've always said that if their demands are not met by thursday they will escalate the protest action in a couple of weeks we have another big rally here that marks july 1st which is the handover of this former british territory to china that's always an anniversary it's marked here in hong kong and no doubt the message from these protests is about the extradition bill that will be heard loud and clear at that particular rally going democrats republic of congo have killed a chinese national of the colby soldier monday in greece violence has led to the displacement of hundreds of thousands of people from the northeast and tourie
4:18 pm
province fighting between tribal groups has increased over the past week killing nearly 200 people dozens of villages have been destroyed. in kampala in neighboring uganda with more on those who have been displaced. the number of people displaced has increased significantly according to the united nations is now 300000 people displaced since. nearly 200 people have been killed. in a conflict is really difficult to get information on the ground because of the conflict and tension there and confusion there but the local governor says that he thinks so far more than 30 villages have been burnt and destroyed he said a lot of the roads in the area are being blocked by various militia groups some of them a while equipped and well armed that makes it very difficult for the congolese army and the united nations to go in a citizen to ation prevent the conflict and help anyone who needs assistance the government says people in the area trying to leave for the own safety and cross into neighboring uganda they try to do that at night because they feel that's when
4:19 pm
they want to detected by these various militia groups they've got 2 options they can use the road which takes a couple of hours or they can cross lake albert by boat about a 4 hour trip began in government an aid workers say they are on standby here in uganda top anyone who crosses over and is assistance you know to. more troops to the middle east before making the announcement the. elite iranian troops removing exploded mine from one of the 2 or explosions last week. the u.s. military says these newly released photos taken from a navy helicopter show members of iran's revolutionary guard removing an unexploded mine from the side of a japanese oil tanker there'd been an earlier explosion on that tanker and another ship last week in the gulf of oman iran denies involvement but on monday night the pentagon announced it was sending approximately $1000.00 additional troops to the
4:20 pm
middle east by and large when you look at the overall side of u.s. military forces are small measure it's designed to send a message but it's also designed to notch this is nowhere near what you need for an invasion or a war in a statement u.s. acting secretary of defense patrick shanahan said the united states does not seek conflict with iran the action today is being taken to ensure the safety and welfare of our military personnel working throughout the region and to protect our national interests the u.s. relationship with iran has deteriorated rapidly since president trump withdrew from the 2015 nuclear treaty citing iran's engagement in this whole development and supporting proxy armies since that the us has imposed and ever tightening news of economic sanctions on iran washington calls it a campaign of maximum pressure but leaders have been promoting another term maximum
4:21 pm
restraint you have seen that already in the last days we have called for the maximum restraint i think back to a particular wisdom have been the words of secretary general of the united nations but that is when he says that the world cannot afford another crisis especially in an area like that iran's decision to increase your radio production has led some in the u.s. to hughes tehran of nuclear blackmail washington flexing its military might only add to the tension and the fear of confrontation heidi joe castro al-jazeera washington well in a televised speech iran's president hassan rouhani insisted his country had nothing to do with what happened to the time because the u.s. is just trying to stir up conflict. american efforts in the region to cut our relations with the world and isolate iran have all been unsuccessful if certain companies in some countries don't want to cooperate with us because of us pressure
4:22 pm
we condemn america for this we don't want war with any nation those facing us are a group of politicians with a little experience well meanwhile russia is warning the us not to deploy more troops to the middle east describing the move provocative let's put this up with a new study that tell us more about russia's response. well words are for straight here also in moscow but also a very strong message to the united states from the deputy foreign minister ripped off to sad that if the u.s. is really serious not wanting any war in the middle east then they should not send any additional troops he basically said to the united states prove that you really don't want any war but and at the same time meanwhile president putin has also met with president rouhani last week at a summit in kyrgyzstan and also has actually put some pressure on iran saying that
4:23 pm
iran should comply with the nuclear deal and according to put in spokesman person or hand he said that iran wants to comply with this deal but the deputy foreign minister also said that he is concerned about the increased production of enriched uranium by iran but he also understands that the country is taking d.s. steps but he says he doesn't support it so basically russia but also china are calling on iran to comply with the deal but also calling on the european nations to come together and look for a solution also so you run can actually export oil again and use the money for its own resources so basically russia and china are trying to play a mediating peace making role here to make sure that the tensions in the middle east are not going any higher so what is russia's game plan here. well russia and iran have become quite close allies because of the war in syria
4:24 pm
russia and iran are basically fighting on the same side on the government side in syria as well so the of course russia wants this this commitment to iran to to continue s. while but also wants to play this this peacemaker this mediator in the world and showing to the world that the united states basically is at the wrong side of history here and it's increasingly becoming isolated that's basically the game plan that russia is playing right now or i'd start thanks very much steverson the reporting now geopolitical tensions and trade wars are all in the frame at the international person show in france turkey's own stealth fighter jet dubbed the turkish fighter was on display it comes as the u.s. blocked to turkey from purchasing american f. $35.00 fighter jets in dispute over increased plans to buy a russian defense system donald trump has given turkey until the end of july to pull out of the deal with russia but i said butler is at the show in the bush just
4:25 pm
northeast of curse. well the turkish made fighter jet that's been launched air at the paris air show is designed to replace turkey's aging fleet of f. 16 s now the manufacturer says that will be in the skies by 2025 and in full service by 2028 but the launch i hear is very interesting indeed in terms of timing because it comes just as the united states has threatened to expel turkey from its f. 35 fighter jet program turkey is part of our program it's a nato member it has been building components for it is invested a $1000000000.00 and is also expecting $100.00 f. $35.00 jets but ankara has infuriated washington by buying a russian missile defense system that washington's not pleased about us and they also say that that missile defense system is simply incompatible with having the f. $35.00 for security reasons well all this of course has made the relationship between the united states and turkey which is already very strained over many
4:26 pm
issues including those of foreign policy even more tense. a mixed bag in europe that yes but if we look at the as always it's not really mix so much as wet now there's always is somewhere we don't really cover very often in the weather partly because of its remote location but also because it's generally nice it's sunny it's warm it doesn't get too cold in winter and it doesn't get too hot in summer however just over the last day or so we've had some thunderstorms that have made it pretty wet here in fact this is the video that we currently see and you can see the water absolutely rushing down the hillside there and it has flooded many homes the streets and it's also pulled down some trees as well so clearly things have been a little bit out of the ordinary there now fortunately the rain there has passed but instead we're now seeing this weather system work its way through parts of spain of the fronts and up through the u.k. and this is a little root that's been pretty wet in cool over the last week or so where is the rest of europe has been really very warm sunny in fact it's been pretty hot for
4:27 pm
many of us now this weather system here. is actually going to make a bit more headway so all of that hot weather that's been over europe for quite some time is finally being chased down the way hope for now though still some thunderstorms around so many of us but this weather system will continue its journey eastwards as we head through the next few days now it's making quite slow progress but by the time it makes its way across us we will see those temperatures drop however it's also going to bring some or all the thunder reactivity as well and it will stay cold force in the northwest nick starr thanks very much among the stories coming up here in our desire to look at the risks for venezuelans crossing the border into colombia hoping to get basic supplies. donald trump's time in office as he gets ready to launch his reelection campaign. i do support kind of its prime minister is one of 2000000 thrown into raptures found he turned out to welcome home the n.b.a. champ.
4:28 pm
as it breaks local communities here in putting are very frustrated because the lack of post storm services with detailed coverage this past month and the fact that people flock to see this struggling to make plans and it's i just want a better life from around the wilds and agassi has been offered it to those who we value against the government. except those involved in human rights abuses
4:29 pm
a war crime. how do you know what yeah there are a reminder the top stories this and egypt's only democratically elected president mohammed morsi has been buried at the cemetery car a day after he died in court he were rights groups say morsi suffered poor treatment in prison the u.n. is calling for a full investigation. ongoing as me to carry his off it what she calls her most sincere apology for the way he and i should issue a bill that's been home to hundreds of thousands have been protesting over the. russia's foreign ministry says plans by the united states to send $1000.00
4:30 pm
additional troops to the middle east is provocative the pentagon has released pictures that it says show elite rainin troops removing an unexploded mine from one of the oil tankers hit by explosions last week. all right more on our top story and rights groups have accuse egypt's government of brutally abusing its powers to crush critics and opponents human rights watch says security forces act without fear of punishment for example no one has been investigated over the killing of 800 pro morsi demonstrators in 2013 the organization adds that albert tree arrests unfair. trials and torture a commonplace all under the cover of fighting terrorism. recorded more than $1500.00 cases of forced disappearances between 2013 or of 2018 and journalists have been intimidated and imprisoned including al jazeera who say he's been behind bars without charge for more than $900.00 s.
4:31 pm
well human rights watch says the egyptian government's treatment of morsi is indicative of more widespread abuses we believe. that. president morsi isolation and treatment might actually amount to torture i cording to the un convention against torture and according to the basic principles of keeping inmates. different government completely ignored and disregarded i think ceases government have shown. contempt for the basic human needs i think this. president's morsi should actually. bring attention to the state of thousands of prisoners in egypt presidents some of which are even not convicted just sent to prisons on this kind of pretrial detention on able to see judges unable to see their families. and we documented
4:32 pm
before a human rights watch of the many inmates because of the bad detention conditions because because of the lack of sufficient medical care i think this is this should serve as a wake up call for egypt's international allies to actually raise the alarm about the state of human rights in egypt and britain conditions. the un food agency is warning it will start to suspend food aid to who think controlled areas of yemen this week the wall food program says the rebels and not letting them do that job accusing them of diverting aid from those who need it most it blames haiti's for not sticking to a previous agreement which includes a system to ensure fed distribution after extensive dialogue again i wrote to the authorities asking not for words but action on of the agreements you've signed if we do not receive these assurances then we will begin a phase suspension of food assistance most likely towards the end of this week the
4:33 pm
humanitarian situation in yemen is dire and despite the image suffering of the 20000000 yemenis who do not have enough to eat we continue to face fierce resistance to simply just do our job to keep people alive. hundreds of ethiopian migrants have returned home from yemen as part of a un repatriation program international organization for migration says thousands more waiting to leave held in a football stadium in the city of aden rhetorical as. they left ethiopia for what they hoped would be a life changing opportunity abroad to earn money to support their families now back in the capital addis ababa these migrants say they're disappointed and angry they were sold a lie in. the smuggler told me that if i went to saudi arabia i'd earn $270.00 a month that was wrong i have a wife and 8 children who expected

4:35 pm
the brink of famine despite this the u.n. estimates more than 12000 people take the dangerous sea journey from the horn of africa to yemen every month once they arrive there often kept in poor conditions in detention centers and face systematic deportation. many though are undeterred by the risks. or their development we know about the war but our problems at home forced us to leave we've tried to bypass series where there's fighting we've not been harmed in so far we've been able to move about freely. most who arrive in a didn't stay in a suburb called. facilities are basic. money washing cars. the problems in my country resemble those in yemen if my country was safe i'd have stayed there there's work in my country but the wages are low. migrants returning

a terrorist organization that the group that is fighting in somalia and that has also carried out a series of attacks here in the country 2 of them have already been convicted of being in the country illegally this charges are pretty much punishable by life imprisonment we've been speaking to some of those who survived that attack on the university as well as relatives who lost their loved ones including agnes where oh who lost her daughter you've been following this trial you're waiting for this judgment do you think. it's going to give you the closure that you need. and don't even know why. because my daughter is gone and gone for good i'll never see her again so. no one comes in. then but it seems there is more justice in this country. because. all those
4:38 pm
innocent children who lost their lives. they come to the government and it is painful to the call that a misogynist. for example the mind kept on calling on to talk to. those who lost their loved ones saying that yes perhaps is going to be some closure but the bitterness and the trauma would truly go away. you know it's a nation's is condemning the use of 3 child bombers in an attack that killed at least 30 people in northern nigeria in the northern nigeria village of can do good on monday at least 40 people were wounded one of the attackers is now in custody fighters from the group boko haram are being blamed but so far no one has claimed responsibility i would address as more from the nigeria's capital of abuja. the attack happened when a group of young men gathered around television sets watching a football match then 2 suicide bombers a male and female detainees at their devices killing instantly at least 20 people
4:39 pm
now and the death toll is mounting overnight and at least 17 other people have been confirmed to be injured in that attack and many medical workers believe that the figure could rise because of severity of the injuries none of the book i'm functioning of so far claimed responsibility but a lot of people including security experts believe that the attack was carried out by the chicago faction the long term leader of boko haram who took over when its founder mohammad yousuf was killed by the security forces in 2009 the group the book faction and it's known to have targeted civilians kidnapping a lot of people including schoolgirls as well as individuals in the northeast and in particular targets civilian population those it consider that mostly as an enemy and as an enemy in its fight against the nigerian state the international the islamic state in west africa probably it's allied groups actually operate in the
