london also coming up iran reaches the limit on its stockpile of enriched uranium is set by the 2050 nuclear deal and says it won't stop the. 20 hours of talks and with european leaders no closer to agreeing on who should get the e.u.'s top jobs. and the high price bangladesh's paying for meeting the global demand for cheap and fast fashion. fellow protesters in hong kong have launched a furious challenge to china as anger over a controversial extradition bill spirals out of control hundreds of demonstrators smashed through the entrance of the legislative council building as the territory marks 22 years since the u.k. handed control of the city to china protesters then stormed into the legislature tearing down pictures and spraying graffiti soon after that the police moved in
3:50 am
offices in riot gear bricks through protest lines causing the activists to leave the chamber elsewhere organizers say more than half a 1000000 protesters marched through the territory peacefully making the same demands for democracy under thomas joins us live from hong kong as i'm to watch the situation like now. well this is the legislative council building that was the focal point of all the projects as the building that the protesters smashed their way into over the course of monday and then occupy the sometimes i'll take you inside you can see the states of it now will go through walls the main entrance to this building completely smashed away as all the way around the ground floor of this building and as we go in you can see the damage. inside this building it's everywhere your feet see on the wall of the wools rubbish on all of the ground this man's also used to leave again i think now but there is a lot of damage in this building a lot of damage and the protesters occupied the sun hours over the course of monday
3:51 am
before late on monday night's off the having given the mornings the place said they were going to come in and they did come in numbers and they were hundreds of excess inside but there were hundreds thousands perhaps of riot place they seemed to come from nowhere because for most of the day the place left the protesters but inside this building and surrounding it probably 10000 if not more they will surround this building they left them alone so the situation now is that the place had this building back. but it's very very badly damaged the protesters have all played out entirely and then if anyone stands to gain from the events. well that's a very good question or because what we've got here now is a situation where clearly the people of hong kong have made their views on this extradition reporters a little idea that people from hong kong could be extradited to mainland china very very clear the millions who marched
3:52 am
a couple of weeks ago about 500000 to march today basically through the streets of hong kong they will not reply to taken off the table entirely and they will say that i've made that message. has been loud and place that i would say that success who wins in this situation i was another matter entirely because this is sort of down. mitch go down. with mainstream hong kong with what the government can legitimately say is that this damage wasn't cool by the place who was in a confrontation with the protest this protest is that this all narrowed they did it when they snatched that went this building and then have the buildings themselves the sun now is over the course of monday and this kind of destruction but no real point was necessarily go down well with the mainstream in hong kong who certainly supports the idea of the peaceful protests but not this oil and products and that perhaps is what the government will be saying there's
3:53 am
a press conference in about an hour from the chief executive here in on home fairy land and no doubt she'll be deploring what happened here cooling these people who did this rises and loses and in the bigger picture here beijing 2 who of course have a major stake in all of this they will be out a point say crazy losers the price he rises as a reason perhaps not to give the people of hong kong the great suffering you can to protect his wants on behalf of. the lay people their own devices this is what happens and that may give some balance to their arguments the protests the course won't see it that way and didn't think this has turned now more into a movement which is wanting broader democracy rather than that narrow issue that you're talking about the extradition though. that's absolutely what the protesters here at alleged have council been saying to me they see these extradition law proposals that they want to be completely off the table
3:54 am
canceled entirely not just perspiring as the t.v. executive has promised they want that just to be the start of much greater reforms but people marching the hundreds of thousands who marched through hong kong on monday they were still sticking to that relatively narrow issue these extradition proposals but the people here are the party. because they want much much more not just those laws taken off the table and the resignation of the chief as executive and an investigation into the way the place behaved in the previous riots they protest they also want this to be a 1st step to greater democratic freedoms they have made that explicitly clear to me the occupy movement a few years ago now where many many protesters occupy the streets of hong kong for long periods of time no that was calling for broad democratic reform and eventually those protests fizzled out well the protesters here think that they've got momentum back and they want this extradition law proposal and the opposition to it to be just the start of protests that lead to greater democratic reform and for them here
3:55 am
that was what all this was about andrew thomas thank you very much indeed. there's demonstrating they say the government must address the issues at stake. my absolute top concern is of course the safety of the hong kong people because this is a very critical moment and if the government chooses not to try and solve this political problem and chooses to use the police or even gets beijing to deal with the people of on kong then we may be facing the tragedy of 20 years of handover we want to make gazan mines. not try and of why i was in because you know if we feel we show off their home called citizens and we have to fight for our feature field then. the chinese foreign ministry spokesman has told reporters that matters in hong kong are china's internal affairs and that no foreign country has the right to intervene katrina you has more from beijing.
3:56 am
beijing also only watching the situation in hong kong very closely from their perspective what has happened in ledge co is unthinkable it's a direct affront to beijing's power and it's pretty much a humiliation to beijing's authority and they're very keen to see it put under control very quickly and it's also put into question vesa port full carry lamb of the past few weeks in june as people have protested against the extradition will beijing has a maintain their support of carolan but seeing what they've seen tonight that may not be the case moving forward now so far here in beijing it's been very quiet in the early hours of the morning which is really seeming to say that the senses here in beijing are really in overdrive trying to really clamp down on any pictures of what's happening in hong kong these are pictures that they don't want to be seen here in the mainland they want to maintain this position that everything is is
3:57 am
homeowners that the people in hong kong are in fact celebrating what's happening. in terms of this anniversary of hong kong's return to the to the mainland so they definitely do not want this to get out too quickly but we already started to see some formulation of a response no official response from the government yet but a response from global times which is a state media newspaper here and what this global times has said on their way ball count which is a chinese twitter they've said that they've this has been really nothing more than more violence rises who've gone out of control and they've really just put this protest down to troublemakers outlie is and people who really are not part of mainstream hong kong here but certainly we're going to see a very strong response from beijing come the morning when beijing wakes up the not going to want to see any sort of greek response they want to make sure that a message gets sent to those in hong kong that this is unacceptable and this cannot happen again.
3:58 am
thank you un's nuclear watchdog has confirmed iran's announcement but it's now stockpiled more enriched uranium than allowed in the 2050 nuclear deal the international atomic energy agency says its inspectors in the islamic republic of verified that the limit has been breached tehran has accused european powers of not doing enough to help save the nuclear deal after the u.s. withdrawal and subsequent sanctions well under the 2050 nuclear deal iran stockpile was not supposed to exceed 300 kilograms of low enriched uranium it also stops the country from enriching its uranium beyond 3.67 percent but iran's foreign minister says they may exceed that limit as well if european countries fail to salvage the deal just last month the iranian atomic agency said it could boost purity to 20 percent which is just a step away from weapons grade levels
3:59 am
a deal with world powers in 2015 was meant to stop iran acquiring nuclear weapons in return for lifting sanctions and breathing life into the economy that's been already stripped away steadily stripped away i should say since the u.s. pulled out last may but watching new sanctions and sending iran internationally at freefall also jabari has more from the iranian capital tehran. the international atomic energy organization says iran has surpassed its 300 kilograms of low enriched uranium at the level of 3.67 percent now this is something the iranians have said they were going to do as part of their scaling back their commitment to the nuclear deal of 2015 because they feel that the european signatories are not upholding their end of the deal of this agreement now the foreign minister has says this is the 1st step the 2nd step is coming on july 7th which is the end of the 60 day period that has been set by president hassan rouhani and for the europeans to
4:00 am
respond to the concerns the iranians have on july 7th it is believed that the 2nd step will include the increase of the level of enrichment that means it will go from 3.67 percent anywhere to up to 20 percent that is what iran is capable of enriching so we have yet to see what that number will be but regardless they have decided this is the 2nd step that is coming and today's announcement is just another sign that the iranians are adamant that they're not really in this agreement with all the other signatories and the other parties involved really must do more to uphold their end of the deal after the united states withdrew from this agreement last year and iran will continue to pursue the path that they believe is best for their country's best interest but popular in paris says more on how the news is going down in europe. over the past few weeks as tensions have been escalating between washington and tehran european powers of repeatedly called on the 2 sides for calm to do to deescalate the situation and they've also called on
4:01 am
iran to keep its commitments under 2015 deal what they don't want to be is in a position where we're going to have paris berlin london and the e.u. suddenly being in a position where they're going to have to concede that iran has broken its commitments to the deal that would be a concession that their diplomatic powers of collapse would be a huge blow to their diplomatic credibility and they would be very worried indeed about the possibility of iran having a nuclear weapon is something that of course this deal is supposed to prevent the problem is that the european powers have not yet come up with some sort of method or mechanism to shield the iranian economy from the full force of u.s. sanctions they put in place something called instead it's a payment system that quanta was dollar payments that allows for some trade between europe and iran so far it can only be used for humanitarian goods or some medical
4:02 am
goods food and aid it is not enough though to try and persuade big multinationals like the french oil giant total to do trade with iran again and risk u.s. penalties and that really is the problem because european powers simply haven't managed to come up with something to shield the iranian economy from the full force of u.s. sanctions and in a way iran is certainly turning up the pressure on european powers to do more. still ahead this half hour a taliban truck bomb attack in kabul kills at least 16 people and injures more than $151.00 of them children. on a massive hair storm that left some parts of mexico's got a i'm eternally off deep in ice. hello it's probably no longer going to be cold heatwave still quite warm in this
4:03 am
part of europe so this was the southeast but this is a telling line of clout it is a cold front it has been knocking temperatures back and as it comes in has been said you have some pretty big thunderstorms they temperature layers i think on tuesday would mean they've not temps back always answer to ukraine halfway through austria this is the remaining red bit this clearly is much much cooler and that extends back through france well there in spain for the most part still pretty warm now the green the old frontal system where hot meets cold will possibly still be sundry this not so this just feel more like may is an early july said but a big turn of events for germany and for poland it will stay that way you see the green still around northern italy where it's very warm thunderstorms same is true down in romania as well vienna's 26 is the gentle sunshine and it's up to 24 there in paris and london about 22 in the sunshine but where it should be for july will be a bit below are pretty hot still in tunisia culminating in study 5 on the coast in

4:09 am
they called in after area and they were engaged with the taliban attackers taliban are claiming responsibility for this attack at a time where they're holding the start with the u.s. officials in the at the moment iraq's prime minister has ordered the country's powerful paramilitary groups to be integrated into the armed forces adela demand he says they must merge by the end of the month currently most of iraq's paramilitary groups are believed to be backed by iran. and jim jim is live for us in baghdad how significant is this news. lauren it was expected but it is significant it was expected because there had been a series of decrees laid out by government and the prime minister here i doubt that it might be the past few months in which it was clearly indicated that the prime minister was trying to rein in iran's influence in iraq and one of the ways that he wanted to do so was to really get those popular mobilization forces under the
4:10 am
auspices completely of the military establishment here in iraq so while this decree was expected the fact of the matter is it's still a significant coming as it does at a time of such huge tension not just in the region but especially between their docs 2 main allies the u.s. and it on now we can also mention that it was expected because we've just heard in the last half an hour that influential shiite cleric here and all of us other has indorsed this decree and has said that the units that are part of the popular mobilization forces affiliated with him that he want to sever ties with them so that they can come under the fold of the the military establishment as i said all of this coming at a time of heightened tension between the u.s. and iran heightened tension in the region we must remember that in may there was a surprise visit by u.s. secretary of state mike pompei oh he came here to speak with the prime minister with the president with other adults the officials about the u.s. is perceived threat from iran towards u.s.
4:11 am
interests here in iraq and so the u.s. and other allies of iraq have wanted to see iraq distance itself from it on one of the ways they would like them to do so is to make sure that the popular mobilization forces are completely under the hierarchy of the military here by that i mean within the power of the mobilization forces there are units that basically go their own way and they are rogue units and these are units that are more strongly affiliated with the ied on now the prime minister has come out quite boldly and said this is no longer going to be the case that there can no longer be political and military factions that all of these factions have to serve their aki . establishment and if that is not the case then they will be banished now what's left to find out how exactly will these paramilitary groups react to this decree will it be something that goes smoothly as we all know here in iraq it's a complicated governments a complicated military structure so it will be very interesting to see in the days ahead what all of these various battalions and paramilitary groups how they will be
4:12 am
reacting to this very significant but expected decree this evening lauren to have a general thank you very much an overcrowded minibus has crashed into a gorge in indian administered kashmir killing at least 35 people the vehicle plunged off the road as the driver negotiated a curve another 17 people were injured police are investigating whether it was caused by a mechanical failure or human error at least 150000 people die in road accidents across india every year most crashes a blamed for reckless driving and aging vehicles for the 2nd time he does have failed to pick a new president for the block despite working 20 hours of negotiations a divided over who should succeed as european commission president eastern european countries object to dutch socialist france to man's who has the backing of germany spain and france will meet again on tuesday to try to reach a consensus on the next 5 years the french president has criticized the delay as

4:21 am
news after that thanks for watching. i have a me ok and you're in the stream today have the fiji islands become a highway for drug traffickers we explore how locals are bearing the brunt of the surge in pacific trafficking routes send us your thoughts by tweeting at a.j. stream or you can leave a comment in the you tube chat and we will do our best to get you into the conversation.
4:22 am
is the drug route from or from international headlines about increased trafficking through the pacific region is creating a david and goliath like problem for police in several countries especially fiji hundreds of kilograms of narcotics being shipped from north and south america to markets in australia and new zealand after portably ended up on fuji ensures leaving inexperienced law enforcement in a quick to curb the spike in drug related crimes now the lure of the drug business in fiji has drawn some fisherman away from their trades without proper rehabilitation facilities government agencies of rich that they are effectively 2 steps behind the drug gangs to help us explain the depth of the problem in fiji and the region in sydney australia kate lyons so reporter for the guardian australia and she's been covering this issue extensive late in wellington new zealand joe say susa santos is the managing director at
4:23 am
strategic group asia pacific that's an international security consultancy group. and in the united arab emirates saudi end up. fiji's ambassador to united nations hello overweights good to have you here i'm just going to show an interactive map from the guardian australia just to give us an idea of where in the world we're talking about and how big the problem may well be so the drug route you've never heard of as a map of pacific drug busts i'm just going to look here from florida for colombia and in all the way across the pacific oppen to fiji and the nurse various stories about what is going on in these parts of the world ok can you give us one story that stands out that really explains fiji's grappling with the drug problem about trafficking and why it's getting even bigger. great to be with you femi yes one of one example is we've seen this increase trafficking of. cocaine and methamphetamine
4:24 am
is coming in through particularly through yachts and smaller vessels leisure craft and there was a huge bust a big bust last year and actually a and a stray in man had traveled from latin america had packed. a number of kilos of cocaine as well as some methamphetamines some illegal weapons and a lot of cash on to his yard and it was meant to be a sort of a sailing holiday with him and his wife you know just taking their time moseying across the pacific ocean but when they pulled into fiji they were it down around our marina there which is on the west coast of the main island between police and customs. bus at them and found that there was a number of killers cocaine packed into hidden compartments of of this yacht and that's increasingly a method that we're seeing from traffic is because at that makes detection quite
4:25 am
difficult because customs and a strict when you're sailing in for a holiday vessel across the ocean rather then carrying it on on planes or through cargo shipments where customs are stricter this is an increasing that that traffickers they using but this was a great example of law enforcement really working and and that man was then sentenced he's been sentenced to i think 23 years in jail so that's a long time he'll be away for that trafficking operation jess a stream isn't the only air team actually following kate's reporting at the guard in australia i know you have as well i does that here the 23rd of june any 2nd rate to see your reporting take on such a critical issue this is something you've been looking at for 4 years but this drug trafficking with it's been around for decades why in the hell is it becoming so much more lucrative than it has been before. well actually i know this is something i've been looking at for the past 15 years. what we've seen over the past 4 years
4:26 am
is a repping up of the amount of. a bit unfair remains in kind being trafficked through the pacific towards strider new zealand i think the reasons why that is happening is we have an over saturated drug market in other states it's so therefore silicates and cut off in south america the usa linking up with the strains on syndicates. and capitalizing on the drug markets in australia new zealand. you have some of the highest prices for drugs in the world so when you talk about high prices it is worthwhile if you're seeing some drug trade in that what the amounts that you buy the drug are you get the drug and central south america and the amount that you can sell it for in new zealand australia that's that's impressive that that's exactly at the back the ports
4:27 am
in south america for example in colombia you can buy. a kilo of cocaine for roughly 7 and a half $1000.00 u.s. that's what the last research showed by the same token once that can get to australia new zealand it's jumped in prostitute 250000 dollars u.s.d. . comparing that you need not to states a kilo of cocaine is 50000 u.s.d. and in the united kingdom you're looking at 60000 u.s.d. that is a huge profit margin for the syndicates and i mean that also means that i think one of the one of the biggest risks serious is because they can afford to take it they can afford to lose a couple of consignments because there is such a large profit margin so every time that we see a seizure in fiji or in you know in talking or us. more with regret i want to look at the numbers and we think we will have an impact. on how much drugs are coming
4:28 am
through actually weakening silicates the reality when you look at how much the. point of origin impact on the city could. i want to share this tweet with you ambassadors from berks in june. and says also known as the maid's boyfriend on twitter you stand a better chance in this war if you have the fisherman on your side because truth be told nothing beats drug money it's more and it's mightier how complicit do you fail or how involved are the locals in fiji with the drug trafficking change tried do they have any. agency in it or are they victims here ambassador. thank you very much your. first didn't say just the one text this is just there is no state get involved with them you have stated you were connecting some live in
4:29 am
south central america and markets yesterday here and that the supply routes up in the pacific meet you stand so on one of these so they searched me on the butt countries and many many islands and. evidence was there suggest that much much of it is the lucky that you are certain that. we do not have a single destination. point to bring it up point saying there are in stop across the islands across countries and between these regions and in f.a. in. between even if all they come into one different customs agent sees a different one he said story sharon says well it's getting to fun we've made as such effect as including you're going to have fisherman. commercial fishing. but ones that suggest that there's a whole lot. of. iraqi connections that are involved in these
4:30 am
very long journey across the across the pacific bab stand 50000 miles in both to say that the mission fisherman auntie's not sure enough body politic means but certainly they get one vote the ice years as well as. this very small number of them maybe completed. his. gets points of contact and he's very very good as we described to you shaw i had an emergency yes i was let me just for listening and please come back into the conversation i okon acquired a sense that maybe she could be more proactive with the c.m. border patrol by. carrying out exercises regularly on boats and ships on the same get scanned as x. ray boats on the sea for carats i just want to remind our audience the area that we're talking about this is a huge chunk of ocean hey kate how possible is it i know you you were out there you
4:31 am
were doing your reporting what did he say what's a plane like that policing i mean. it's an enormous challenge it's a huge amount of ocean to cover a huge number of islands thousands and thousands of violence and multiple jurisdictions we're talking about you know more than 20 different member countries the oceanic customs organization for example and each one will have different protocols different penalties for drug trafficking and so i was hearing from police that they felt like though they were putting so much of their resources into this issue and the fijian police commissioner who i was out on a patrol boat with estimated he spends its officers spend at least a quarter of the year trying to tackle specifically drug trafficking not even the violence and other crimes that come about as a result of drug usage and they spent more than a quarter of
4:32 am
a year on this and yet they still always feel like they're a step behind and partly that's because of what they were saying before that this is sort of law enforcement is a sort of business cost to these syndicates they will factor in their spreadsheets in their planning that they will have to deal with police they'll have to deal with you know busts and that have to occasionally dump a consignment of drugs over overboard rather than be caught by police you know that factor that in but the other thing to say is that police in the regions are hugely under-resourced to be tackling such an enormous and enormous problem and an enormous well funded enemy that they're up against so when i was at record also there are you go pretty easy. so i think just going back to the 1st tweet which i think links to what you're just saying as well ok let us know what one of the you know one of the points by the way it was there why not go with the
4:33 am
fisherman as the drug dollar is mighty and that's one of the issues that we saw you know when we started started. really looking at. the crystal road. through the pacific and it's very specifically in fiji is that you have fishermen and members of the commercial sector behaving as facilitators for these drugs coming through the pacific and then what they what's happening is they're not getting paid in cash to get out in the percentage of the drug they're getting through that's when we 1st started to see the growth of the local market in augusta methamphetamine i just i want to i want to pick up from there because this is a really important point because just because the drugs are being trafficked areas like fiji there is a knock on effect of those drugs going for and the way that the drugs and the trafficking is being paid for so i want to bring in somebody who actually spoke to she was doing how important it seems andrea's shone hot he's
4:34 am
a professor of criminal law of investor of queensland impressed been a straight ahead listen to one of the impacts of what this drug trafficking which is having. the locals have a less. trafficking of illicit drugs was because of the islands is neither a new not a particularly surprising phenomenon seeing that the islands lie direct be along the straight line that leads from maybe using countries of cocaine in southern america. in some destination countries such as australia and new zealand and wherever there is traffic these usually a high risk around all routes some people will come into contact with these drugs and substance abuse may occur. i so got lots of comments in from fiji about drug addiction and also facilities let me start here ashika dio's says i have people within my family or social circle addicted to meth i've seen the impact of drug addiction on their families and social circle misuse of money family in the
4:35 am
great friendships deteriorating left abuse affairs and so on and then this one really important from ramiro he says we have one mental health facility and a population of almost a 1000000 the country doesn't have ect the expertise to treat addiction and the cause to government for increasing budget allocation into mental health getting more expertise have failed ambassador you where the situation. yes yes. very aware and they help ministry in the us here in the government it's a holy spirit we're looking at this he said not very a problem may be there but while but it's a point against it more widespread and there and at larger proportion of the crux of the state forestry guarantee telling. you how the bits of a gun and the national health can be real decent and dispel it can also get people gives. traditionally a step please. structure them. to help but i sight that get confused with misty the
4:36 am
problems that they have facing nevertheless the government is quite focused on the base we are trying to build the health if you're going to be spending almost 2nd as well as being very force might get you going to the 50 local very local level meeting the goals and the function and. the blogs have all of them show half empty if you want support but the problem they said a lot having both yellow is we have just the same. country use you won't strain any. longer someone in the pacific islands itself only and we probably need a much better and much more coordinated reach the chair. can they say the problem all these ways won't be very. good when everybody cheered them but many don't side of the disability in most mundane enforcement. shipments between
4:37 am
distinction which is a complicated. he's rich oh i hate that political response try to say i can't ask the ambassador has to say that because he's a part of the current administration feature but what i'm thinking about is and let's be very clear about this how many drug issues to people in fiji have before this trial uptake in the trials because if they have only one facility it will speak to perhaps they never had a top problem before the stock became law so for. well this is the issue fiji through the ninety's was kind of a spy. you know was the growth and the expulsion of cannabis and there wasn't really any serious drug treatment centers to address this what what we're seeing in i think the drug problem the pacific and the response by partner as you know
4:38 am
restaurant in new zealand specifically these markets drive this truck trying to have created. this issue is that there isn't a large investment in assistance at the law enforcement. side of addressing the drug issue in the pacific capacity building for example funding for fusion centers which is well and good it's really required to be able to address this issue but we're not saying the same you know just the funding towards drug treatment centers in regards to support by sending drug to talk specialists from a strange feeling towards other p.g. or the rest of the region and i think that's where there's a very big hole you know it's very good for for governments. partly governments to look into new invest in the sexy sort of big big budget areas such as law enforcement to him to get the you know the media time that the you know
4:39 am
seizures are being made and they have an impact but we're not seeing the same you know dusting vesting. in the drug treatment problems issues i mean that coupled with the one that you just finished up just i thought i meant that coupled with with you know local pacific culture where you go to avoid shame to the family you try not to. let people know that you know they have family members which are on drugs. that that sort of creates the perfect storm we know where people you know move away from the support networks that they have within their. villages. from here and up looking for other groups. are echoing so many of the tweets that we got from fiji look at this one here mental health services are largely centralized in the capital only psychiatric hospital is located stigma this is what jay was saying is a big problem in fiji cultural religious police are often the reason people delay
4:40 am
seeking treatment and mental illness is attributed to witchcraft curses as a whole or show by itself kate let me just bring you back into the conversation next i want to show our audience something i am quite naive so i do not know what what drugs that like when they run when they wash up on the beach but i am not the only one fijians are also have the same situation so there have been some situations looking here at the things i've been washing up wear for jeans do not know what these are and they've been getting high up in using them these trucks are very bizarre our. new says can you explain that just briefly before we move on. of course these are the slightly wild stories that come out of this trade and it's not just peachy where this is happened is that now wash ups is what they're called by police after ranks. big packages of cocaine for example washed up on remote islands there was a huge case last year in fiji more than 120 of cocaine washed up in one kilogram
4:41 am
packages on some of the remote islands. and in cases over the years there have been worries that people will not know what the drugs are and will use them in inadvertently consume them so there was a case in their state of micronesia more than a decade ago where people are used as washing powder until they realise that cocaine wasn't mothering anything. but the shift has happened i was hearing from fijian police with these workshops last year is that no longer because because there's more information about drugs because there's you know good internet service and it can. without that people the dangers and the ballot you know put it in a thinking it shouldn't use it as part toothpaste or something right back anymore and the fear is that they know exactly what it is and spain know its value and will hold on to it and look for a chance to sell it to make some money sent back. and at least i was hearing from the police commissioner as we've been speaking has he been having this conversation
4:42 am
people are watching this and got the same from sammy and sammy to rocket science to phillips head men in coastal areas and feeding a working but custom someplace in fiji they were pull anything suspicious they say this is resulted in some successful cases just like. it has and that is exactly what you know what with the strength the pacific is it that it's buying caging with the traditional past doctors so you have you know law enforcement agency chapelle structures which are the backbone of the region to ensure that we have an impact and we can actually address who can actually seize these drugs before the syndicates were able to make contact. with people in these villages and that leads to another issue which is when when drugs wash up and then they're identified where in the city because i don't know for which villages these these drugs have washed up in don't try to get to these villages before law enforcement does to try to recoup the drugs. and in this city and we've seen instances where they would do
4:43 am
well though use violence intimidation to try to get the bad the drugs back from the villages. and they also utilize the fact that currently fiji only has one trouble that that's active to be able to patrol it's all easy so police response can sometimes take a little bit more time to do like you know and this is where you have pacific partners you know kind of the system regards to capacity building the customs of police in being able to respond much quicker what's the evidence for going to craft . says possibly having drugs on board but also to be able to to go to get the drugs before they disappear through. to through the villages to to back to the city i see fry's ambassador says half a genius zealand australia and other pacific islands look to counter narcotics
4:44 am
operations within other regions such as the americas where are you looking for help and for the model it seems that if the drugs are going through to new zealand and australia surely they should be helping it funding it. if the. sites do it on the positive side you have seen. what if somebody could of been forced but if you look things much better and much more sophisticated intelligence gathering if they can prevent. your sharing between australia and new zealand you're in and possibly get the details about shipment from shipment there but it is showing in the dairy grease i've asked that the tensions there be a good sign. on the other side don't say it said do or remember the site in this year which is not what 1700000 square miles of white cell. phone me would be even to call that systematically out. of
4:45 am
protest to be. a much better watch. out again sharing. much more formed up front just a bit calling. for diversity that's really at the heart beat ok and. these are. this is an important area in which partnerships to train their new zealand and the old of the pacific all right i'm going to wrap up yeah but her death. there's so much more to actually taking from us the reporting and the research that shows i've been doing a putting that kate's going to have a look you my laptop at miss kate violence and you will look at snoopy to see some of the stories that she's been filing on to see this court high seas and god in australia in a sentence what's the best reaction you've had from a serious. well one of the great things is that this is an issue that people feel
4:46 am
has been met and is really significant but hasn't been discussed so much and what. action is that oh just want to just try and i hate golf at the sea and your sentence thank you so much more online at twitter at misc hotlines has so far the strain today a slow next time and so watching. the pages of this exercise book code unspeakable memory is compiled testimonies of victims of congolese musson. as this intimate evidence finds its way to

the limits on its stockpile of enriched uranium set by the 2050 nuclear deal and says it won't stop there. 20 hours of talks and with european leaders no closer to agreeing on who should get the top jobs last. i'm sorry i got to go in the southern italian island of lampedusa where people are still risking their lives to make dangerous crossings hair by the fact that telling government insisted it's blocked such are like. you know protesters in hong kong have launched a furious challenge to china as anger over a controversial extradition bill spirals out of control hundreds of demonstrators smashed through the entrance of the legislative council building as the territory marked 22 years since the u.k. handed control of the city to china but just as then stormed into the legislature
4:50 am
tearing down pictures and spraying graffiti soon after that the police moved in offices in riot gear broke through protest lines causing the activists to leave the chamber elsewhere organizers say more than half a 1000000 protesters marched through the territory peacefully making the same demands for democracy under thomas joins us live from hong kong what's the situation like that now. well it's calm lauren and a lot calmer than it was 3 or 4 hours ago when they protested his who were in the space that i'm in here thousands upon thousands of them and they were inside that legislative council building behind me which you can see as all its ground floor windows and doors completely smashed in that's how the protest as. well they were hit and then the riot place approached and over the course of an hour a brief hour they completely cleared this area with tear gas and with batons now
4:51 am
right now perry lamb hong kong's chief executive is walking into a room in the central place headquarters here in hong kong and she is going to give we believe a statement or some comments about what has happened a lot of criticism. over the last few weeks about the way she's handled not just the protests but these controversial extradition laws that were proposed as well now she has put those laws aimed to hibernation but she has not cancelled the idea that those laws might come back and back to the half 1000000 people whom are peacefully through the streets of hong kong were calling for earlier on monday and a day that was the 1st but only the 1st of the demands of the more violent and boisterous noisy protesters who were here broke into the legislative council and occupied this building behind me for some hours they want those extradition laws to be completely counseled never to come back they also want carry land to
4:52 am
resign they want an investigation the way the police handled previous protests and they want broader democratic reforms whatever that means they see these protests as a step in getting rule to democratic reforms now i think kerry speaking in cannes needs and i've got a colleague here of reducing who speaks cantonese and he's watching it as she says . she is going to be saying i'll try and feed you some of that information but right now she'll be speaking about what happened here and how what was supposed to be a peaceful protest through the whole streets of hong kong turned into a pretty volatile medway by the end that's the only way it can be described with a lot of damage inside that building i've been inside and on every floor things a smashed up and there's a lot of the strike is all over the floors a lot of graffiti all over the wall some of it pretty of same but some of it saying things like hong kong is not china and bring in democracy we want more of that
4:53 am
that's what some of the graffiti says and you mentioned the 50 and so on inside and the damage how much will this kind of cause a problem for the for the more peaceful protesters and that cause. well that's a very good question lauren and that's to be honest well we'll have to wait some time to say because on the one hand you really got the feeling that both mainstream hong kong and indeed the broader world supports aids the huge marches in hong kong has a population of less than 10000000 and yet perhaps as many as 2000000 people took part in the march a couple of weeks back now through the face of hong kong that's a huge proportion of the population whereas if you like opposition march is pro beijing pro se did happen but they were much much much smaller perhaps top $100000.00 people an absolute max so you get the real feeling that the mainstream
4:54 am
of hong kong was behind the peaceful marches will they be behind though what has happened here where unprovoked by the police because for the vasa majority of monday the place stood back from this situation left the protesters outside of this building even left them for some time inside of that building without going in the damage that was done that was not the. the police were attacking the protesters it's because the protest is to create that damage and will that call out of action the protesters that all important mainstream support and indeed that all important international support because pro cost is like us have been showing these images around the world for a few weeks now and you got the failing but all the world leaders were certainly saying that the rights and beliefs and views of the protesters in the streets of hong kong should be heard not just here in hong kong but in beijing as well will
4:55 am
those same voices speak up as loudly given the laws the unprovoked violence that there has been on monday that is a question that will take some time to launch from glancing over richard give me an idea of what the chief executive terry lamb is saying and fill us in a little and what you're saying just by you get that information that we're just going to listen to what wayne hay reported earlier from inside the national council building give you a chance to get more information from that news conference. extraordinary scenes inside the legislative council building of hong kong this is effectively hong kong's parliament after spending hours outside this complex over the course of monday the protesters were trying to smash their way through reinforced glass windows and doors and eventually by monday evening they were able to force their way inside the building itself facing very little resistance from police along the way in the end in fact it seems that the police disappeared altogether a small group of protesters were able to make their way all the way into this room
4:56 am
this is the debating chamber and as you can see there are still some here they have caused a lot of damage it has to be said right throughout this building as they came in there it's graffiti on the walls they have torn down pictures out from the walls as well but this is hugely symbolic of course this is the room where back in april that will make his head that 1st reading of the controversial extradition bill that would allow criminal suspects to be sent to mainland china to face justice well the people who have been protesting over the past 3 weeks or so say that's just another sign of beijing's increasing influence over hong kong that bill was eventually suspended that's not good enough for these protesters they want it canceled altogether and they want the chief executive of hong kong to resign so far there is no sign of either of those things happening. don mr joins us again as we monitor
4:57 am
that news conference there the reaction from the government to those events and to what would you hearing. and i'm speaking cantonese and luckily we have a count of the speaker just to the side of me here and he's telling me that what she is saying is that there were 2 protests today that were completely different she said the one that was pay school where people walking in the hundreds of thousands through the streets who are expressing genuine concerns in the correct democratic way will. peacefully through the streets but she drew a huge distinction orgy is driving a huge distinction between that protest and what happened inside the legislative council when the protesters broke in and outside as well she was saying that they few people here in the were fewer i still think there were perhaps 10000 maybe a bit more but she's saying the only a small number of those people were horrifically obscene lete violence and they caused injuries to place offices they came all with dangerous equipment
4:58 am
a lot of it with things like barricades that they picked up off the streets and things that they'd taken from building sites around here used to smash their way into this building and she's saying that it's criminal obscene and dangerous and she's making a huge distinction between the 2 protests one peaceful and one violent and about to have current position i'm just going to pause for a 2nd in case caroline new does actually speak english at this junction. and quickly pause there we want to show that news conference is actually had to switch into english for a 2nd. it still sounds like it's implied that whole area and we are waiting for translation they said but in the meantime just talk us through how much control beijing has on who is in charge of hong kong and the position of kerry and if they wanted to could they replace caroline with someone else relatively easily or not.
4:59 am
i think probably could if i wanted to yes the way it works is the result of a nominal democracy here in hong kong some of the legislators. elected by the people of hong kong and some are essentially appointed but all of the candidates for the legislature need to be pre-approved and beijing can get them if they choose so that's why a lot of people here in hong kong don't feel that i have a proper democracy because at the end of the day there is always a veto from beijing could. reply scarry lamb they can't technically but in practice they probably could whether they will or not is another matter entirely because that would mean admitting defeat in a sense not just to carry land but for the way that beijing remotely has handled this as well and carried them so far have press conferences given no indication that she's going anywhere she is again making this big distinction between peaceful protesters and criminals as she is calling them dangerous obscene looting criminals
5:00 am
that have done so much damage in this building she may feel. and i speculate she may feel that monday has gone reasonably well for the government because what i can say is that this protest that volumes did not turn violent because of anything the government did it turned violent because of one of the protesters there and she may feel the having really lost control of public opinion over the last couple of weeks that perhaps public opinion will now shift behind her let's have a little listen to more of what caroline is saying. is to do with politics all it cetera. i have page attention that sorry i really called here they said very well. in hong kong. we very much hope that.
5:01 am
and many people are talking in the same time can really hear. what do you think it do you think it was your responsibility based violence activities or should we have done what the government can do a. not over the last i would love. for you. or the fun to be. on that thing blessing. heightens our own thinking the old. i don't. think i've gone where there were young go off on my good man wife as i was saying raising. i've often never
5:02 am
been like you know all the rules all the way and carried out some measures to help these ladies why in the past few days this is our position so i would like to reiterate that no matter how we need these political a whether way how different these way should use peaceful and rest you know me you know rational rational method today always this i feel very sad to battle so on i'm very shocked to see that people chose this violence way and they going to the legislation be you day to day labor later destroy things and they say it's really bad for our society and we should all looking at base. in a rational no matter today always base the base it's not helpful to the society and to the government.
5:03 am
oh. yes very very. intense and. on the 1st of your life register 22nd anniversary of the establishment of the hong kong special administrative region we have seen 2 entitled the french public the 1st one is to. march on the. there's a few alive regardless of the number of participants in the market the market was peaceful and generally all that and this stuff put a very lax inclusiveness hong kong society and the poor values we are trying to paint and or. the 2nd scene that we have seen which really set the news and all the people and a lot of people a state t.v. would still follow the. advent of them by protesters who stormed into the
5:04 am
legislature on soap buildings. over a period of time so this is something that we should seriously come down because nothing is more important than the rule of roll call so i hope the community at large will agree with us that's what these acts that we have seen it is right for us to understand it and whole society will return to normal and so that's what i'm going to have none of you want to have 1 i know you'll run out except i mean i don't know it was a photograph not knowing the man for him to go into the living room mr know it you decided to come to that was why there were no office find out who knew what kind of campaign to put it quite i do think appropriate for a new prime choreographer i have a 2nd question for you you have personally never reported on your knock on wood
5:05 am
form because it's been march. let me on. i totally disagree with what this gentleman has just says that we have offices inside there let's go with the friending that's cold for nearly a cow was during the period we have been under siege all the protesters to keep on using. violent tactics to try to unite through into the let's call it is not is only until 9 o'clock at night time there were several incident happened that night that we have to do a temple really a retreat 1st of all there were men the protesters outside electrical i mean entrance and they are starving or using violent tactics to
5:06 am
charge the. door of let's hold. secondly due to the. local and vironment be that we are unable to use some of the force that we can use in open ground. and thirdly we found that there were some protests tampering with the electricity and we find that some of the lights have gone out. and you can fear total power that the protest while charging against someone turned off the like i'm afraid that there will be people stepping people all there will be. a wrong move on either side both the police and the protesters and lastly but not the least during the trial they throw in some white smoke that as you know in the afternoon
5:07 am
there were already a toxic powder. attack on my office in the afternoon so without knowing whether this is another toxic holiday at tech we have no other choice but to temporarily retreat from that's cold and before we retreat we have already in the afternoon fall busy we have. security to appeal to all working stop within the let's call to leave let's go do to the. incident the charging by the protesters and by the time 9 o'clock we have we have been told that all working stop have left that that means that we are sure there is no law that civilian within the building so my offices have no choice but to temporary retreat and to do a regrouping and try to redeploy them and i would do some redeployment to take back
5:08 am
let's go later on i'm sure that i have already you know it wasn't. true to say that the government has not responded. you have not responded to everything reminding. us of course all. good reasons not because of all. the cost of this social tensions are going to see is the bill to amend. the future of health and his sort of things on the 15th pull through and i have announced the substantial debate. and subsequent meeting we have explained and you never rate it by itself spending the bill at this point in time with no timetable and no plans to resume that the fate of the bill in the legislative council the bill but expire or the bill will die in july 23rd when the current or the
5:09 am
triple term expires that is a very positive response to all of these 3 months that we have such. as it was some of the other team minds let me come back to this very important principle of the rule of law suit the mom to governments who would be nice without any investigation and checking with the law about offenses 2nd mate that we should at least after that the best of luck to any follow up action against some of the violent acts we have seen or even some drawn an amnesty to all those involved in these protests. all these responses will not be enough for those with the real goal of the rule of law is exactly what i have been talking of tonight so i hope we all agree that this is something of a power in milan in fulton street hong kong and will continue to guide the gulf most reactions and responses to social issues and to the moms and aspirations of up
5:10 am
until tonight i am none of the narrow not at all i don't how dare i have. known her i don't know. how far however because i am. so sorry that i don't have a child from their own life sorry. if it will be a little more time i think because africa. thank you for having i believe his are you. saying i don't see what we can. draw off of you is that the more you. do not agree with what you say completely. from the police having done is done his best to serve the people from 1 o'clock on words where you have. to save and protect the logical beating from the
5:11 am
time back to we received the report for nearly 8 hours during these time we did not retreat even when people use poisonous pounder to attack our colleagues we did not retreat. also apart from the attacked at the entrance and there was someone also damage the gate we also had colleagues there as i mentioned earlier in english that way waited until 9 o'clock that was the time that we had no choice but to retreat. because of the demonstration on 1st of july which almost finished so we had more and more protesters outside even also including the ledge hill council along well avenue and 10 g. ave there were over $30000.00 protesters of course some of them have charged
5:12 am
into the alleged kolby routing our colleagues faced with such. a large number of protesters and we were. and the kind of the kind of. you know weapons that we could choose to use was limited so at the time we had discovered that some protesters were trying to do something to the electric city box and some of the lights were out and we were very concerned that they were going to turn off all the lights if they do. that then. they go and then people will stamp on people and we're worried to that our colleagues would you know something would happen to my colleagues this was my war rate and at the time there were people who. as throw some white powder and white smoke and my colleagues in the afternoon as similar things happened they attacked my colleagues with out it
5:13 am
was a white powder our colleagues had no choice but to retreat at the same time because the issues as i mentioned about light and also the number of people that kind of weapons we could use it was limited for the safety of the protesters and my colleagues that we chose to retreat temporarily before we retreated we made sure that there were no surveillance inside the leisure commuting at 4 o'clock in the afternoon i called on and reminded the security department of let's go beautie asking all staffs to leave so we made sure that no one was inside the court beauty and that's why we wish we retreated temporarily so we could regroup and. before we enter the lead again. the last question right. now no i don't very.
5:14 am
loud but what about lee's car chill should. retreat on 15th of june i announced about the temporary suspension of the bill and on the 18th of june i spoke to the entire hong kong citizen and mr levy we talked about these. we have we still have a lot of work to do yesterday i mentioned that we very much hope that. we would choose the way we would change the way we work and we will listen to decide t. more and this isn't a different beast from the young people so that we could do our best to resolve the issues. and. the problem is to have come today thank you very much.
5:15 am
carol hong kong chief executive giving her reaction to events today she painted a picture of 2 entirely different marches one regular march which was peaceful and orderly and one which she said had been extreme the use of extreme violence and vandalism as those protesters stormed parliament she said that one of the most important things in hong kong which is nothing is more important than the rule of law in hong kong and she defended the way things have been handled with the police commissioner defended the way the policing operation has been carried out as being under thomas you've been watching all those events there today and caught up in the middle of them and listening to that news conference so very much from caroline the message that the rule of law needs to be reestablished and and she is. particularly stressing that she's already reacted on the issue of the extradition bill and doesn't how much is going to go any further. that's right she sounds pretty
5:16 am
defiant doesn't see from what you just said in that press conference she's going as far as she has gone previously which is to say that the extradition law proposals have been put on hold or may will expire as her words when the legislative period next year laws but she is still not use the words that the protesters have been calling for which is that all elements of extradition proposals are cancelled they won't come by. in any sort of repackaged bill at a later stage that's what the protesters want kerry lamb is still not giving them that she's it centrally employing that she's getting them the same thing by saying this bill will expire made next year but they want it to be more clear than that they want them to be formally cancelled the same time she's saying that some of the other demond specifically that people arrested on previous protests and what she called an amnesty she said well how on earth can
5:17 am
a place that has the rule of law go down that try and of ave you know we're going to prosecute people who have broken the law and then she talks specifically about today and the police response to what happened today she made this big distinction between the peaceful march that more than half a 1000000 people took part in she supports that she says she supports hong kong was democratic rights to march in the streets but she said what happened here at the ledge co building and we heard during that press conference that there were 30000 protesters both in the immediate vicinity of this building and then many of them inside the building as well she drew a big big distinction between the peaceful protesters and those violent ones around this building we also got a much clearer idea of the place tactics during the day because to be honest being around this building as i have been now for 15 hours or so it was quite difficult to get an idea of what the placing tactics were because there were no place at school for the vast majority of the daylights out of all the daylight hours out
5:18 am
sawin of the building but the word riot police inside and they were standing just inside the glass as the glass was being smashed in front of them from the outside and they were standing there were holes made in this building oversee that in washington since the holes made by the protesters and still the riot police stood impassively not coming out nor for a long time to the protesters go in instead they put umbrellas in the holes as if to say we could come in whenever we want but we're not. gunshy because we the protesters don't want to provoke a confrontation with the place and then at about 9 o'clock at night the riot police all seem to disappear and we were very confused as to where they had gone but we now hear from the police commissioner there the there was a real feeling within the place the right place and others who may have been inside this building were in danger they talked about a white powder that the protesters were throwing at the building they also talked about the fact that the protesters that got hold of
5:19 am
a main electricity box and that they feared that the lights might go off inside the building and that would be dangerous not only for the place offices inside but if the protesters did go inside it would be dangerous for them as well so they made the strategic decision to do what they called a temporary withdrawal of the place from inside the building and that's certainly what we saw at about 9 o'clock and i was actually that the then meant that the protesters did go inside the building and once they occupied it the place started ramping up the rhetoric saying they were going to go in and over the course of the next 2 and a half hours from sinai. till about 11 30 pm we were in this tense period where we believe the place were about to come but they didn't actually arrive and then at about hop off 11 call to the midnight local time so what 4 hours just over 4 hours ago now was when the police did kamin and in big numbers hundreds if not thousands of right place who descended from externally not from within the building but from the roads all around they broke down the barricades that the protesters put up and
5:20 am
they made their way towards this building ultimately inside this building using tear gas using batons and clearing the people out the place defending what they did and carry land there saying what choice did they have they were as restrained as they could be the police but at some point they had to go in and clear this up just briefly and do you do you think it's not an incident would have set back the cause of the vast majority of the protesters. that's a question and it's probably not one for me to answer lauren at this stage but certainly i've spoken to a lot of people over the last week or so while i've been in hong kong and even the protests that happened a little while ago they were concerned that they had turned violent the majority of hong kong with want this to be peacefully sorted out not bottomley andrew thomas thank you very much indeed. and we'll have more for you on the story and the rest of the day's news in around half an hour's time with news as i hope you join me
5:21 am
then and meantime counting the cost is coming up next thanks for much watching by foot. capturing a moment in time. you snap shots of other law. inspiring documentaries from impassioned to next. witness on al-jazeera. hello i'm adrian finnigan this is counting the cost on al-jazeera a weekly look at the world of business and economics this week trump's deal of the century a $50000000000.00 plan to kick start a moribund israeli palestinian peace process but not a single dollar pledged. i'm going to kind of the german complement where the electric revolution is driving petrol powered people's cars to the end of the line
5:22 am
. and we find out if there's enough lithium to power the world's ambition to go electric. president trump promised the deal of the century to bring peace between israelis and palestinians his son in law a white house adviser jared kirshner delivered an economic roadmap he called the opportunity of the century the proposal was roundly dismissed by palestinians and many others the plans called for $50000000000.00 in investments over 10 years 28000000000 would go to the palestinian territories in gaza at the israeli occupied west bank the rest to be split between jordan egypt and lebanon it's hoped the money would help to double the palestinian economy creating $1000000.00 jobs in the process that should reduce the palestinian unemployment rate to nearly single digits and lower the palestinian poverty rates by 50 percent so who's writing that $50000000000.00 check well question i had hoped the gulf states and private investors would see the benefits of the $179.00 proposed infrastructure and
5:23 am
business projects including a 5 $1000000000.00 kora. all to connect the west bank and gaza but the plan was never going to fly without a political solution long time campaign a how it was typical of the pushback against the proposal saying the palestinians were capable of building a vibrant prosperous economy as a free and sovereign people that is part of that interview with al jazeera offered a glimpse of what the political process could look like i think we all have to recognize that if there ever is a deal it's not going to be along the lines of the arab peace initiative will be somewhere between the arab peace initiative and somewhere between the israeli position and we need to think about what are the fundamental things that are underlying important number one is security right i think the israeli population and the palestinian population and the broader middle east right now cares a lot about have security the more you have security the more you could have freer flow of goods for flow of people i know that's a very big issue for the palestinians bus as neda abraham reports from the occupied
5:24 am
west bank palestinians say that financial incentives alone console's a decades old conflict israeli restrictions of palestinian businesses those so tight even sold can sift through the only palestinian salt factory is feeling the pinch palestinian businessman believes his company's problems cannot be solved by economy incentives only the military area so we are restricted in getting anything permits. to. expand what with existing buildings things that we want is not giveaways but actually business opportunities not only does the company need israeli coordination to pump water from the dead sea it also takes him a lot of time and money to export the salt using israeli controlled ports the factory that employs $25.00 workers is the only palestinian owned business on the shores of the dead sea and has hardly changed or been improved since it started in the early 1960 s.
5:25 am
owners need israeli permission before they can build any structure in this area sometimes never get it it took 30 years before the go head was given to. the factories the main source of salt for palestinians including many businesses in the occupied west bank like many other palestinian business is the owner of this business says profits. if he had under strict access to land and water as well as free movement of products israel controls all water supplies in the west bank the palestinian water authority estimates that palestinians can only use 15 percent of their water resources israelis use that 85 percent in a further restriction to cripple the economy the israeli government restricts palestinians from using 60 percent of the land in the west bank to build factories or anything else in. the core of the crisis goes back to the establishment of the palestinian authority gay sions of the people in yaki territory has been transferred to the palestinian authority at the same time it inherited
5:26 am
a weak economy is or is the tax revenues which it collects on behalf of the palestinian authority is at the heart of the authorities financial crisis that says palestinians coupled with reduced aid from foreign donors as well as the long standing restrictions on businesses further blocks the road to economy progress joining us now from ramallah across lawson's for economy minister for the palestinian authority a business but he currently serves as the chief executive. cinna crop global group welcome to counting the cost one of the main criticisms of the proposals put forward by jarrett push to was they presented in a glossy manhattan real estate brochure style that lifted ideas from usa the very programs pulled by trung the world bank and mckinsey reports as a former economy minister but more importantly as a businessman what did you make of it well let's try to want to speak about somebody entities but stein actually has an infant small economy a lot of g.d.p.
5:27 am
is less than $14000000000.00 a year it's actually like the size of a medium to large company in the u.s. or in the gulf region. or international and local studies have stated very clearly that that actually palestine economy has been very what identified by these and the missional agencies and companies from outside and from inside but it's fine but everybody agrees that such kind of economy can hardly go under occupation because the obstacles have been identified that comes this have been identified and then imitation and and very limited kind of those are margins for us to grow has been also very limited so we believe it's not only to do a study of the studies have been made in $100.00 it's by these international experts around the world and they have been very well identified what's going on so i don't think that we are very much in need for the new studies to be launched know that what they're going to make administration know about that is u.s.
5:28 am
idea also has sent some studies the world bank have stated very clearly and their regular reports if the siege on the west bank and gaza is lifted the policy in an economy can get all on 15 percent yearly and if there is that is will also make access for it but it's the indians to work to expand their businesses and social life and those are done valley we can is it it could it another $100000.00 jobs so at the end it's surely to talk your patient and the measures on the ground by copious so you can have an economic deal without a political one alongside it definitely that's that's through those who do any of these infrastructure proposals actually make sense 500000000 dollars for a university $5000000000.00 to link gaza and the west bank. look i mean for us businesspeople and we understand that busy strategic interest infrastructure projects go in line with the state building if there is no state building measures to ford by the stand to have someone at the on its land on the state attorneys
5:29 am
what's really the main objective of having a statistic projects or an infrastructure project this of from one end from the other hand but a stand today has 15 local universities with 240000 students and they have been doing very well without oaks we are in need for vocational colleges and training locational students this is something else which i agree about that also they cut a deal between the west bank and gaza but it's that is very much in need to tie that you're going to fade they're going to open a c n n's to get that and there was a study being made in 2005 also by the world bank for this kind of door or a town that can get old what a bridge so options were to state that but not with this amount of money how do you think palestinian donors countries like saudi arabia the u.a.e. feel about these proposals would they do you think try to pressure the palestinian authority at least into giving it a good hard look look you and definitional agencies including some of that up
5:30 am
countries are invested as they always seek and back for that investment so they can hardly see em packed and that acute patient and they need to identify the projects they are investing in and they need to come and see and monitor and supervise the projects they would like to do and countries like but it's not but having is there and control of the border that is for those who wants to come in or for those who wants to leave and getting a visa from the israelis usually this is not the way to do business and really to encourage investments from the gulf region for for palestine but it's seen as in desperate they have been trying that up most during the last 50 years or so since occupation in 96 or 7 3rd today i can tell you the amount of money came from princess. and desperate is extremely little and because the policy hasn't desperate wealth is exceeding $80000000000.00 in addition to the arabs and others who would like to see that that would like to share the future for palestinians and to really
5:31 am
build the palestinian state and to be a part of future building for the for the for the palestinians so as far as you're concerned jared christus plan as it is is dead in the water it's a nonstarter well i don't want to say that it was born of dead but i think it was a good exercise for the bush not who has been you of for that he's in to understand what's been going on and they're really watch part of the sessions in manama over and over just life and most of the people have spoken loudly about the limitation for economic growth and that if you're patient and without a political well we don't see that things can happen on the ground so you can hardly decouple politics from economics this should be well known and realized by caution and the kind of american administration so talking about about political security prosperity these are the priorities for palestine they should go in order to put it again security prosperity without political will you can hardly have
5:32 am
security on the ground nor respond at the under occupation could talk to somebody thanks dave for being with us. thank you. diesel was supposed to be the future but the german car industry has paid and continues to count the cost of promoting the fuel after regulators caught some of the industry cheating on emissions tests now it's spending billions to go electric but the cost could be tens of thousands of job losses the german also industry employs 1800000 people directly and indirectly livelihoods are threatened because electric cars don't need complicated combustion engines leading to the loss of more than 100000 jobs by 2035 for the economy the german car industry is a big bringing in $500000000000.00 annually to keep its global leadership b.m.w. dima and v.w. will spend $45000000000.00 on electric vehicle technology over the next 3 years for
5:33 am
its part says its last fossil fuel based car will be released in 2026 but environmentalists say that's too little too late they want all manufacturers to phase out polluting engines by 2028 so how realistic is this now to serious dominic casey has been to a car plant in eastern germany to find out. this is the production line of the foxfire going to plant in sickle whether robotic and human workforce combine to assemble more than $300000.00 vehicles every year for decades virtually all the people's cars produced here have been powered by petrol engines but not for much longer now electric is the buzzword but we are convinced that not just german drivers but also european ones are ready for this and we are ready to roll out these cars to the whole world why because an electric car is not
5:34 am
a compromise they have everything that a car needs maybe even a little more they can be more dynamic with better driving characteristics you get a good sense of the differences between the vehicles when you look inside their shasta stripped down as they are here this is the conventionally powered golf look at the central panel which is clearly big to contain gears that and that sort of thing those sorts of controls but kind of cross to what we have here the ideological car no major central panel because batteries will be going where previously the sorts of machinery that were in the gulf were installed this drive is part of a commitment from v.w. to phase out all fossil fuel powered cars by 2040 leading environmental campaigners are demanding far more radical results holding onto the status quo is like holding on the sand on the beach. time will slip between your hands and fingers in the past and you will be left with absolutely nothing but the best in your hands this sort
5:35 am
of sentiment has fueled a surge in popularity for the green party across the continent with the movement reaching clear success in may's european elections in many people's minds are problems like these in stuttgart one of the most polluted cities in germany where levels of exhaust emissions regularly exceed safety elements and older diesel engines are already banned we are making very clear if you really want to make progress here if you really want to make sure that the cities are cleaning up without doing any circulation ban because that's what the conservatives hate well maybe then we have to clean up the cars and and we need to put up for policies in place for cleaning up the chorus that's the debate we're having and we're hoping we can push it further which helps explain why the carmakers are embracing the electric revolution and why for v.w. fossil fuel powered cars will soon reach the end of the line dominic cain al-jazeera. well while german comic has
5:36 am
a getting ready to spend billions on electric cars one nation has stolen a march in the field china's technology is considered to be miles ahead of its rivals or economics that is a bit early spoke to alexander close the executive vice president of chinese electric car maker aways he began by asking if its technology advantage was one reason for its plans to expand overseas starting in germany we think we have a very good foundation here in china where you actually have a huge electrical vehicle market already and we want to export that to other places where we think the development hasn't been as fast as it has been in china that's why we think we have a certain advantage going to these places namely for us places to go to receive them and german companies that is start spending 45000000000 on electric cars and you have tesla as another competitor are you well capitalized to be able to deal
5:37 am
with that kind of competition we think what we'll do we offer a vehicle will offer vehicle plus services around that vehicle in the european market and we will capitalize to do that what others have to spend to actually convert all of the. existing assets into electrical vehicles and do for electrical codes it's something completely different we think we've very well equipped to go into the european market and as we all starting at the same time we think we have actually a very good chance of not market and why do you think your pains would be interested in buying your cause 1st of all i have to say we won't sell these cars to europeans we just least them we want to make it s. easy as possible for anybody who wants to go into battery electric vehicle and we think a lot of people do want to go into battery electric vehicles we want to make it very easy for them to get into this vehicle so we will only least anderson. no
5:38 am
question about versatile value no question about warranty no question about maintenance and so on will make it very easy for everybody to get into these cars we know that there is a lot of people who want to drive b. and they just can't do so because all they get in the market at present is very expensive it's going to be a risk because nobody knows what the residual value of will be in a few years nobody knows what the battery will too and so on we want to take all of that off and we think we have an offering that a lot of people will interested in but you've got companies like b y d is a chinese company india which have sort international expansion but haven't made the transition yes so where do you think you can improve on the us everybody else has talked about thought about it and so on we'll just going to do it we think we have a product that is in terms of quality ready for the european market we think also that we offer everything that the european customers would want to have and that's
5:39 am
why we're just going to jump over the over to europe we think it's also the right time maybe a year ago 2 years ago it was in the right time but now it's the right time there's a lot of people literally that are waiting for a car that they can afford where they will have no risk to get into a better electric vehicle and where they can just test this and we offer them that vehicle do you think electric cars are the future in specially when there is concern about range eggs lightly and china itself is considering hydrogen technology too for long distances in particular 1st of all we think that most of the customers in the market today will actually not need a car for a very long distance there is this discussion about a range scientist but we think it's exactly that we still offer a car with a very long range and. to our knowledge people will find a. in
5:40 am
a few years that and maybe that range is even too much for them so they could actually do with a small of range we still offer it today obviously we don't want to offer something for everybody in the market right now we just offering one certain vehicle for a certain purpose and we think that we have to right solution for that what will be the solution for long range travelling for somebody who has to travel long range every day is still in the open we doing our own research in that area and there is some some let's say some technologies which might be the right technologies for the future but nobody knows that and we're all still developing for the time before that and also for a lot of the short range travel it's going to be battery electric vehicles we have very convinced about that sales of cars are slowing in china and we also have the
5:41 am
threat of a longer trade war with the united states just tell us what your feelings are as to where the industry is going in china itself yes sales have been slowing in china but they have been slowing in certain segments and certain manufacturers' staff in other manufacturers which still successful we are a startup we have a plant with a certain capacity which way we want to fill in we think we can fill that capacity because it's only one small part of the market so whilst the market has been slowing around us and we don't think that's going to impact our expansion in the future particularly as we're also going abroad as to the potential trade war between china and the u.s. as we expanding in europe 1st it's not going to impact us for now we have to see also thinking about the u.s. market but that might be at a later stage and excludes the executive vice president of a ways talking that while business as
5:42 am
a bit early. and i want to carry on some of the thoughts from that interview with our next guest joining us from london simon morse the managing director of benchmark mineral intelligence simon you are the leading provider of pricing data of the lithium key ingredients of electric battery technology but there are concerns that if the world was to stop producing electric cars at the current rate of production we could use up the world's resources within 17 to 40 years what's missing from that analysis quite a bit really mean lithium isn't rare the question is getting out the ground in economic quantities and at the moment the lithium industry has gone through a surge in exploration and new development but right now there's not not as much investment going into the lithium industry to go beyond 2025 so the numbers you quoted really a little maybe minerals in the ground it doesn't take into it into account production that's coming on stream and new exploration is going to happen but the takeaway point is let him isn't geologically rare but the challenge is getting it
5:43 am
into the supply chain in economic quantities you talk about funding it's being held back isn't it because investors just don't know how to price this mineral at the moment they're looking to the likes of the london metals exchange to provide a tradable contracts just like copper the like but a lot of players within the industry don't particularly like to trade it that way that's exactly right so lithium is traded in private contracts between buyer and seller and at benchmark we create an independent reference prize to enable that supply chain to trade with more clarity and more freedom never before but as lithium grows is going to be new ways to trade lithium contracts and one was along the metal exchange you have a number of other exchanges looking at it as well but lithium is a speciality chemical it's going from the nation 300020 industry into the mainstream to about a 1000000 tonnes in the mid 20 twenty's and with that will come different ways to
5:44 am
trade this and when. expanding that quickly in a market lithium can't just rely on itself to expand any more it's going to need extra no capital and the issue without external capital is investors are present too scared to put their money into it because they don't understand the fume it's too risky it's too specialist or the evy story is the sun too good to be true and i think that's the main challenge at the moment it's more rare mineral and new. sources of lithium come on line is there a danger that there might be oversupply and that could impact negatively upon the price how long does it get once you've got the investment how long does it get these these mines up and running is a really good question because it takes anywhere between 8 and 10 years to build a lithium my from scratch and to get it ramped up without any problems and that's the biggest challenge for lithium the investment has gone into the mid twenty's twenty's as i said but really the surge in electric vehicle production is coming
5:45 am
after that point and there's a big question mark over where the money is going to come from for all these future lithium mines but as i said the exploration people know these tier one lithium sources now they understand the to 2 sources the question is if the money is going to be committed and at the moment is not coming from the capital markets it's coming from the industry itself right for the moment chinese entities control nearly half of global lithium production and 60 percent of electric battery production capacity does that become a security concern for other nations it has to especially the us i mean when you look for certain parts of the supply chain should i should add so when you look at the lithium structure you've got 6 big producers 2 of which are chinese 2 of which are actually american producers money in south america and the question really isn't on the structure of the lithium industry that kind of that does operate in a sensible normal market driven way it's actually where the battery capacity is
5:46 am
being built out so we've we collect this data also benchmark and we've got 1.9 terawatt hours of battery capacity by 2029 it sounds a lot it means about 35000000 electric vehicles but where is that capacity being built out it's china 67 percent of this batch is in china how much as in the u.s. it's about 8 percent the question is if you take tesla and their huge gigafactory out the equation the number is 3 percent. so the u.s. really should be concerned about these supply chains and it's playing catch up with china simon really get to talk to you on cutting across many thanks indeed for being with us simon morse managing director at benchmark mineral intelligence that show for this week if you'd like to comment on anything that you've seen you can tweet me i'm at a finnigan on twitter please use the hash tag a j c t c when you do or you could drop us a line counting the cost of al-jazeera dot net is our e-mail address as always there's plenty more for you online at al-jazeera dot com slash c t c that takes you

5:50 am
governments headquarters heartbreaking and shocking hundreds of demonstrators smashed through the entrance of the legislative council building as the territory marked 22 years since the u.k. handed control of the city to china protesters then stormed into the legislature tearing down pictures and spraying graffiti soon after that the police moved in offices in riot gear broke through protest lines causing the activist to leave the chamber elsewhere when i was a say more than half a 1000000 protesters marched through the territory making peaceful demands for democracy. this is something that we should seriously condemn because nothing is more important than the rule of law in hong kong so i hope community at large will agree with us that with these violent acts that we have seen it is right for us to condemn it and hope society will return to normal as soon as possible.
5:51 am
under thomas cave a said this update a little earlier from hong kong. well this is the legislative council building that was the focal point of all the projects as the building that the protesters smashed their way into over the course of monday and then occupy the sometimes i'll take you inside you can see the states of it now will go through what was the main entrance to this building completely smashed away as all the way around the ground floor of this building and as we go in you can see the damage inside this building it's everywhere your feet see all of the wools rubbish on all of the ground this man's also used to leave again i think now but there is a lot of damage in this building a lot of damage and the protesters occupied some hours over the course of monday before late on monday nights off the having given the mornings the place said they were going to come in and they did come in huge numbers in the hundreds of obsessed
5:52 am
inside but there were hundreds thousands perhaps of riot place they seemed to come from nowhere because for most of the day the place left the protesters but inside this building and surrounding it probably 10000 if not more people surround this building they left them alone so the situation now is that the place of this building that. but it's very very badly damaged the protesters have all cleared out entirely. well those demonstrating say the government must address the issues at stake. so. my absolute top concern is of course the safety of the hong kong people because this is a very critical moment and if the government chooses not to try and solve this political problem and chooses to use the police or even gets beijing to deal with the people of all kong then we may be facing the tragedies of 20 years of handover we want to make and. not try and avoid i was in because you know we feel we shall offer to hong kong citizens and we have
5:53 am
to fight for our future field. joins us live from hong kong so very much a distinction being made but by the chief executive hong kong between the peaceful demonstrations and those that ended in violence. she has drawn that line between the 2 different rallies that we held yesterday there was one obviously that was the big march the annual rally that marked the anniversary of the british handover of hong kong back to china that was $550000.00 according to organizers who did the peaceful march to central and then there was this rally where we are now we're at the legislative council building which is pretty much trashed. expire before andrew thomas' package there about 10000 people who surrounded here they've entered stormed into code and they've trashed inside and out there are no protesters left here at the moment it's just police and the cleanup is beginning but she did draw
5:54 am
a distinct line between those 2 rallies one being peaceful and the 2nd one she of course she condemned the violence and repeated her calls for the rule of law in her press conference earlier she talked about the fact that these people will be charged she said as you said she was heartbroken by what she saw but it will be a massive cleanup here and whether or not protests and the violence and this is what we can see behind me whether that will play in the interest of those protesters you want this bill suspended we yet to hear that she will suggest that the bill as effectively be suspended until it's kind of no it's not coming back in the current form will what she said about that day be enough for the protesters or do they still want more. noise so the bill is suspended in her press conference she used the word the bill would die legally simply by july 2020 which is when the ledge the council term ends
5:55 am
but these protesters don't want it suspended i don't want it to die they want withdrawn and dumped altogether the concern from these protests is is that hot to this bill can be brought back on the table and that's why they put a number of demands on the list and they want number one carrying them to resign number 2 they want this bill. dumped all together number 3 they want a cup of the protests ago they wanted it not to be referred to as a bra and they also wanted some the protesters who've been jailed or charged they want those charges dropped but in a lot of what we've seen yes there's a lot more ahead of us but it didn't look like it didn't sound like thailand was going to bend or bow to any of those demands of the protesters have requested. thank you very much indeed. the chinese foreign ministry spokesman has told reporters that matters in hong kong are china's internal affairs and no foreign country has the right to intervene katrina you has more from beijing. beijing also only watching the situation in hong kong very closely from their perspective what
5:56 am
has happened in ledge co is unthinkable it's a direct affront to beijing's power and it's pretty much a humiliation to beijing's authority and they're very keen to see it put under control very quickly and it's also put into question vesa port for kerry lamb of the past few weeks in june as people have protested against the extradition will beijing has a maintain their support of carolan but seeing what they've seen tonight that may not be the case moving forward now so far here in beijing it's been very quiet in the early hours of the morning which is really seeming to say that the senses here in beijing are really in overdrive trying to really clamp down on any pictures of what's happening in hong kong these are pictures that they don't want to be seen here in the mainland they want to maintain this position that everything is is homeowners that the people in hong kong are in fact celebrating what's happening. in terms of this anniversary of hong kong's return to the to the mainland so they
5:57 am
definitely do not want this to get out too quickly but we already started to see some formulation of a response no official response from the government yet but a response from global times which is a state media newspaper here and what this global times has said on their way ball count which is a chinese twitter they've said that they've this has been really nothing more than more violence why it is who've gone out of control and they've really just put this protest down to troublemakers outlie is and people who really are not part of the mainstream hong kong here but certainly we're going to see a very strong response from beijing come the morning when beijing wakes up they're not going to want to see any sort of weak response they want to make sure that a message gets sent to those in hong kong that this is unacceptable and this cannot happen again. well officially hong kong is a semi autonomous region of china it's led by a chief executive who functions like a prime minister is chosen by
5:58 am
a 1200 member committee made up of mainly pro beijing politicians and business leaders it also has its own legal system called basic law with independent executive legislative and judicial powers china describes it as a one country 2 systems principle but communist party leaders in beijing have the power to interpret clauses any way they want. don't ever od is a former british diplomat and was part of a group that was heavily involved in preparing the hong kong's handover to china so just to go back to today's events perhaps some of the history in a minute what how do you view carried out his reaction to the events of that particular the violence that happened today i think it was a very carefully balanced reaction she was pains to show regret for the virus probably quite genuine this kind of thing just doesn't happen in the hong kong is an ordered society and spraying graffiti on the walls of the parliament building was common assault to many of our callers but no sign of tall that is going to give
5:59 am
any ground on that front i mean the fact that these there was one section of here that carried out a violent act in this way whereas of set back the cause of democracy from that other protest is a bit of people i fear may have done this kind of violent act doesn't really go down well in hong kong as i said a heavily ordered society not the kind of place where people like to see the violence that has been splashed all across the television screens today. a very large number of people came out to to demond the retraction of the bill and many of them demanding more fundamental reforms to the hong kong system of governance but if these acts of ours continue then i think that support my starter of a moment on the the issue of the kind of the way this is viewed by china i mean in theory they could decide if carry on is unpopular we could replace perhaps what what would be the advantages and disadvantages of of changing the leadership in
6:00 am
hong kong not many advantages i mean if you replace caroline who do you put in her stead and how is that change actually going to help you deal with the fundamental problems also changing your chief executive at this point looks weak you had to be capitulated to the protesters demands so i don't in front of that did you get impression that she's actually strengthened by the events that have happened in the last 24 hours. yes i think so and i think she's probably got more support from beijing now that you have 48 hours ago in terms of the spirit of the joint declaration you were instrumental in kind of grey about the changes that ended up with with hong kong. being handed over to china do you think that the spirit of the declaration the as it was originally is is kind of left it oh i think there's a lot of spirit left the problem with the spirit of the door decoration or is has been that it has 2 spirits. as seen from beijing and the other as seen from london and they're actually quite different the chinese government has been very
6:01 am
restrained in its reaction to events in hong kong so far the one such a sharp words it's had the press conference of day was for the united kingdom where they condemned battling and said that your kingdom was no it's place a great victorian phrase and reiterated the view that ever since the 100 of what happens in hong kong is china's problem not ours don't ever thank you very much indeed thank you. coming up on this news hour from london iraq moves to limit the influence of the country's powerful iranian backed paramilitary groups. 20 hours of talks ended with european leaders no closer to agreeing on who should get the e.u.'s top jobs. and the world's number one tennis player begins his wimbledon campaign in crisis.
6:02 am
the u.s. has warned that it will never allow iran to develop nuclear weapons and will continue its maximum pressure campaign until the islamic republic changes course this after the un's nuclear watchdog confirmed that iran has stockpiled more enrich uranium than allowed in the 2015 nuclear deal international atomic energy agency says its inspectors have verified that the limit has been breached tehran has accused european powers of not doing enough to help save the nuclear deal after the u.s. withdrew on the valukas deal iran stockpile was not supposed to exceed 300 kilograms of low enrich uranium it also stops the country from enriching its uranium beyond 3.67 percent but iran's foreign minister says they may exceed that limit as well if european countries fail to salvage the deal just last month the iranian atomic energy agency said it could boost purity to 20 percent which is just a step away from weapons grade levels the deal with world powers in 2015 was meant
6:03 am
to stop iran acquiring nuclear weapons in return for lifting sanctions and breathing life into the economy but that's been steadily stripped away since the u.s. pulled out last may not actually new sanctions and sending iran international make freefall just about he has more from the iranian capital tehran. the international atomic energy organization says iran has surpassed its 300 kilograms of low enriched uranium at the level of 3.67 percent now this is something the iranians have said they were going to do as part of their scaling back their commitment to the nuclear deal of 2015 because they feel that the european signatories are not upholding their end of the deal of this agreement now the foreign minister has says this is the 1st step the 2nd step is coming on july 7th which is the end of the 60 day period that has been set by president hassan rouhani for the you refuse to respond to the concerns the iranians have on july 7th it is believed that the 2nd
6:04 am
step will include the increase of the level of enrichment that means it will go from 3.67 percent anywhere to up to 20 percent that is what iran is capable of enriching so we have yet to see what that number will be but regardless they have decided this is the 2nd step that is coming and today's announcement is just another sign that the iranians are adamant that they're not really in this agreement with all the other signatories and that the other parties involved really must do more to uphold their end of the deal after the united states withdrew from this agreement last year and iran will continue to pursue the path that they believe is best for their country's best interest let's bring in john hendren in washington d.c. what more is the white house had to say about all this john. well the diplomatic brinksmanship has only intensified in the white house is offering all stick and no carrot they say that iran will not be allowed to develop
6:05 am
a military nuclear program in this campaign of maximum pressure will continue until iran backs off in a statement issued just a little while ago the white house said it was a mistake on to the iran nuclear deal to allow iran to enrich uranium at any level there is little doubt that even before the deal's existence iran was violating its terms we must restore the longstanding nonproliferation standard of no enrichment for iran the united states and its allies will never allow iran to develop nuclear weapons it goes on but iran has already warned that its next step will be not just to violate the part of the agreement it has already said it's violated which do is increase the stockpile of uranium but it will go on to enrich it to increase the level of enrichment of that iranian meanwhile the european leaders hope to meet with iran before a key date on july 7th they could offer to reimpose those sanctions that came
6:06 am
before 2015 but again that's all stick and no carrot and what iran seems to want here is increased trade to 100 thank you very much indeed. and touch a partner in paris as well on what this means for europe. over the past few weeks as tensions have been escalating between washington and tehran european powers of repeatedly called on the 2 sides for calm to deescalate the situation and they've also called on iran to keep its commitments under 2015 deal what they don't want to be is in a position where we're going to have paris berlin london and the e.u. suddenly being in a position where they're going to have to concede that iran has broken its commitments to the deal that would be a concession that their diplomatic powers of collapse would be a huge blow to their diplomatic credibility and they would be very worried indeed about the possibility of iran having
6:07 am
a nuclear weapon is something that of course this deal is supposed to prevent the problem is that the european powers have not yet come up with some sort of method or mechanism to shield the iranian economy from the full force of u.s. sanctions they put in place something called instead of payment system that quanta was a dollar payments that allows for some trade between europe and iran so far it can only be used for humanitarian goods or some medical goods food and aid it is not enough though to try and persuade big multinationals like the french oil giant total to do trade with iran again and risk u.s. penalties and that really is the problem because european powers simply haven't managed to come up with something to shield the iranian economy from the full force of u.s. sanctions and in a way iran is certainly turning up the pressure on european powers to do more. is president of the national iranian american council who joins us live from washington d.c.
6:08 am
thanks for being with us on that issue of the european reaction and there's been kind of concerned expects press but at what time what point you think they will take the next step. i don't i don't know that europe is thinking about drawing those red lines iran does have a number of steps they can take to further escalate and it seems clear that iran has made the decision that they are pivoting towards escalation after essentially sitting on their hands for over a year and waiting for europe to come up with some mechanism to enable iran to actually see the sanctions relief that was promised under the deal i think that for iran you know this is a major concession that is now no longer being taken up by iran they could very well present or just said begin enriching to a level of nuclear fuel closer to weapons grade and i think the absolute worst case scenario would be for iran to actually leave the nonproliferation treaty kick out the inspectors who are right now on the ground verifying that iran is not building
6:09 am
a nuclear weapon and that we have no eyes or ears on the ground to know what iran is doing as far as its nuclear program given that could this escalation by iran actually end up backfiring on them because we've heard from the white house already that they've they said they'll never allow iran to develop nuclear weapons. well we already see the escalation on the u.s. side backfiring i think on the white house. but for iran i think that they're playing a pretty dangerous game i think that iran is trying to find a balance between raising the pressure on the united states ensuring that the united states doesn't just have a free hand to punish iran without seeing some pressure from the iranian side and raising the pressure for europe and i think they want to do that in a way that doesn't actually trigger the europeans who are right now trying to protect this deal and trying to figure out a way to give iran these benefits to move over to the united states side and i think that's the balance that iran is attempting to strike both with the nuclear
6:10 am
program and with some of these escalations that we've seen in the persian gulf on the military side of things it's this balance of not going so far as to give the u.s. once again the upper hand in this in this standoff. in a matter of calibration isn't it when you know escalating something in is there any way back from this particular escalation. well all of these things that iran has done on its nuclear program or reversible and i think the iranians have made it fairly clear that they're not going to negotiate under pressure they're not going to negotiate as their economy is under these massive nuclear sanctions but have indicated that if the sanctions were to ease these reversible moves could be reversed the question is does the white house actually understand that message and do they want to actually deescalate my view is that the folks driving this policy in the white house deliberately triggered this latest move and are trying to draw
6:11 am
iran into doing more radical things so that the u.s. can actually increase its pressure campaign you have to remember that these uranium stockpiles iran was actually exploiting them so that they wouldn't rise above that threshold and the u.s. slapped sanctions on the export so iran doesn't actually have an option to export this stuff to stay below that threshold so that means as the u.s. has actually sanction in iran into noncompliance so they know exactly what they're doing. thank you very much indeed to feel for some such appreciate your time iraq's prime minister has ordered the country's powerful paramilitary groups to be integrated into the armed forces i don't up to 90 says they must merge by the end of the month currently most of iraq's paramilitary groups and believed to be backed by iran ahmed gendron has moved from baghdad. the decree by off the prime minister . was both expected but still significant this decree in which the prime minister essentially order the popular mobilization forces and all other armed
6:12 am
groups affiliated with the popular mobilization forces to integrate with in that hakim military structure well it's just the latest in a series of decrees that have been leading to this this is something that their own government and the prime minister have been wanting to see and have been signaling the last few weeks and months the timing is certainly significant with this escalating tension between the 2 main allies the u.s. and iran as you'll remember in may u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o made a surprise visit to iraq in which he spoke with the prime minister and other off the officials about what the u.s. said was a threat toward u.s. interests in that up by iran there has been a concern by the u.s. and by other allies of iraq that the popular mobilisation forces have other fighting groups that are aligned with them and that those fighting groups are supported by or affiliated with iran and so now you have the prime minister saying
6:13 am
that the popular mobilization forces which is predominantly shia armed groups that they must integrate with in their up the military structure that can no longer be political wings and military wings that they must be part of that up the military now what's going to be interesting to see is the reaction going forward now another reason that we believe that this is certainly something that was expected is because influential at the shia cleric there just shortly after the prime minister made these decrees supported the prime minister and said that the armed group that's part of the popular mobilization forces affiliated with him that he was going to sever ties with it and that that group should now be a part of the alkie military establishment what we don't yet know is how the other groups affiliated with the popular mobilization forces are going to react to government structure that up the military structure it's all very complicated and so it's going to be very interesting to see in the days and weeks ahead how exactly
6:14 am
these groups are going to react to these decrees. forces loyal to libyan warlord holly for have to have launched more air strikes targeting the un recognized government in the capital tripoli a number of people were killed and injured in the attack the strikes also damaged several buildings after a 3 month long campaign to take the capital suffered a major setback last week when he lost the strategic city of kerry and libya has had 2 rival governments over the last few years and the u.n. recognized ministration that by prime minister fires is based in tripoli it's supported by turkey and most western nations including italy which is worried the fighting near tripoli will force more migrants to cross the mediterranean in the east there's the to book based government the center of power for warlord for have to he's backed by egypt saudi arabia russia and the united arab emirates france is also accused of providing military support to his forces or military commanders no oil today tripoli based government say they believe the airstrikes were carried out

6:50 am
offices in riot gear broke through the protest lines causing the activists to leave the chamber elsewhere organizers say more than half a 1000000 protesters marched through the territory making peaceful demands for democracy this is something that we should seriously condemn because nothing is more important than the rule of law in hong kong so i hope community at large will agree with us that with these violent acts that we have seen it is right for us to condemn it and hope society will return to normal as soon as possible. when her looks back on the day's events. after another day of protests in hong kong police ran out of patience with tear gas and battens they moved in to clear the area around the legislative council hong

kong's parliament it's become the focal point of anti-government rallies over the past 3 weeks because protesters believe it's now largely controlled by mainland china this time they had little choice but to flee and quickly disappeared into the nights. the catalyst for the police action was a decision by the protesters to seize control of the legislative council. after hours of smashing windows and doors they went inside vandalizing the building as they went after several protests over the past 3 weeks some of them turning violent in clashes between protesters and police this group was able to force its way into the debating chamber in the legislative council facing very little resistance along the way they say they had no choice but to escalate the situation after becoming frustrated that the government wasn't listening to them i think for many many young people. they didn't expect that it took so long for the government. to
6:52 am
respond there are rallies every year on july the 1st which is the day 22 years ago that hong kong was handed back to china by great britain but there were a bunch of large numbers this year because of a proposed extradition law it would allow suspects in criminal cases to be sent to mainland china to face trial in the justice system that critics say is deeply flawed. the bill has been suspended but opponents want it scrapped altogether and the resignation of hong kong's chief executive who spoke earlier on monday at a ceremony to mark the anniversary of all daniel for us is the incident that happened in recent months has led to control of the free and disputes between the public and the government this has made me fully realise that i as a politician i have to remind myself all the time of the need to cross a public event missing accurately the system agreed between great britain and china 22 years ago was one country 2 systems for 50 years but protesters believe that
6:53 am
deal is being pushed aside by kerry lamb and 2 governments who they say are increasingly being dictated to by beijing. soon after police moved into the latest rally it was over the streets in the legislative council empty their defiance dispersed but they left their mark on what's supposed to be the center of power in hong kong they will no doubt be repercussions but they're vowing to continue a fight that they say has become about much more than a proposed law it's about the future of the city wayne hay al jazeera hong kong. joins us live from hong kong. hong kong doesn't appear to be any more keen to give in to the demands of the jewels before. now she certainly made that concrete in that press conference which she held at 4 am hong kong time responding to the overnight violence and the storming of the
6:54 am
lives of council building which is behind me and as you can see it's completely expires it's trashed inside and now in this press conference she said she's condemned the violence yesterday she's condemned the protesters and she said she wants to uphold the rule of law she said she saddened by what she saw yesterday but she will not stand down which is the key demands made by these protesters and she will not dump the bill in this press conference she also said that this bill will expire or die by july 2020 and that's legally that's still not good enough for the protesters who want it dumped all together so extraordinary scenes overnight carry lammas said she saddened by what she's saying and she's also situ pursue those protesters and to prosecute but at the moment all we've got left here is police and the cleanup there are trucks around here planing up removing barricades metal rods all the rubbish that's been left with the weapons or the bits and pieces that were used to trash and get access into the legs of council building how concerned people have been protesting peacefully that the violence will actually damage their cause
6:55 am
. or she didn't draw a line in this press conference distinguishing between the 2 rallies yesterday there was one that had about half a 1000000 people it was a peaceful rally it's the annual july 1st anniversary of the british handover of hong kong back to china that was a peaceful rally it was a march that was meant to end up here it didn't end up here it was instead sent to central and this other rally that was here that was a younger group of protesters and now she made a distinct line between the 2 and it's the prosecutor that the prosecution element will be that the ballance of the protesters who are here. whether or not what they've done here and what's happened overnight will play in their interest where yet to see but certainly she's standing firm on refusing to resign and she's also still refusing to withdraw and dump this bill and order any more protests planned. there are no protesters left here at all as i said there's just simply the police
6:56 am
and the rubbish and the cleanup and if you knew the size of this building it's a large building it's a whole block and goes almost to the harbor front and the surrounding area is the rubbish and the bits and pieces left over from yesterday are being picked up and by trucks various vehicles behind me but if this cleanup will take days also in the aftermath we're yet to see whether or not those protesters who will be prosecuted and we're not sure act or bow to any more demands but certainly the press conference she was standing firm and refusing to resign as well as dumping the bill she won't do that at this stage sarah clarke thank you very much indeed. the u.s. has warned that it will never allow iran to develop nuclear weapons and will continue its maximum pressure campaign until the islamic republic changes course this after the un's nuclear watchdog confirmed that iran has stockpiled war enrich uranium and allowed in the 2015 nuclear deal international atomic energy agency
6:57 am
says its inspectors have verified that the limit has been breached tehran has accused european powers of not doing enough to help save the nuclear deal after the u.s. withdrew. well under that nuclear deal iran stopped by was not supposed to exceed 300 kilograms of low enrich uranium it also stops the country from enriching the its uranium beyond 3.67 percent but iran's foreign minister says they may exceed that limit as well if european countries fail to salvage the deal just last month the iranian atomic agency said it could boost purity to 20 percent which is just a step away from weapons grade levels the deal with world powers in 2015 was meant to stop iran acquiring nuclear weapons in return for lifting sanctions and breathing life into the economy that's been steadily stripped away says the u.s. pulled out last may not actually new sanctions and sending iran into an economic freefall dosage of ari has more from the iranian capital tehran. the international
6:58 am
atomic energy organization says iran has surpassed its 300 kilograms of low enriched uranium at the level of 3.67 percent now this is something the iranians have said they were going to do as part of their scaling back their commitment to the nuclear deal of 2015 because they feel that the european signatories are not upholding their end of the deal of this agreement now the foreign minister has says this is the 1st step the 2nd step is coming on july 7th which is the end of the 60 day period that has been set by president hassan rouhani and for the europeans to respond to the concerns the iranians have on july 7th it is believed that the 2nd step will include the increase of the level of enrichment that means it will go from 3.67 percent anywhere to up to 20 percent that is what iran is capable of enriching so we have yet to see what that number will be but regardless they have
6:59 am
decided this is the 2nd step that is coming and today's announcement is just another sign that the iranians are adamant that they're not really in this agreement with all the other signatories and that the other parties involved really must do more to uphold their end of the deal after the united states withdrew from this agreement last year and iran will continue to pursue the path that they believe is best for their country's best interest let's bring in john hendren in washington d.c. john what more has the white house had to say about this well this is a matter of diplomatic brinksmanship these sanctions are hurting iran's economy and that's exactly where the white house seems to want things to be they're offering all carrot and nose stick president trump was asked about iran in the oval office just a short while ago and this is what he had to say. no nobody should sue iran they know what they're doing to you know with the airplane with i think they're playing
7:00 am
with fire so nobody seems to run whatsoever. the white house also issued a statement offered a little more detail on this saying it was a mistake under the iran nuclear deal to allow iran to enrich uranium at any level there is little doubt that even before the deal's existence iran was violating its charms we must restore the longstanding nonproliferation standard of no enrichment for iran the united states and its allies will never allow iran to develop nuclear weapons so where does this leave it at a standoff with things continuing to intensify between the u.s. and iran and really without a new deal between those 2 countries very few opportunities to vent that tension at and what does iran happy to achieve with this latest move. what iran really seems to want is to get out of those sanctions that have been hurting its economy so much and since it's not going to happen between the u.s.
7:01 am
and iran short of a deal they're hoping the european allies can increase trade with iran but the problem with that is that through a deal with the united states there are secondary sanctions that would punish europe for engaging in increased trade it's. not allowed by those sanctions so iran has a couple of different options here it can simply choose not to comply with the agreement and increase pressure and give the western allies an incentive to try to come to some kind of agreement or iran could also disrupt trade through the strait of hormuz and the united states if that is exactly what iran has been doing shooting down a global hawk surveillance drone a couple of weeks ago damaging according to the u.s. it was iran who did this many other people have not come to that conclusion but damaging for commercial ships and then there were 2 tankers that caught fire last month so again without an agreement and with only sticks being offered a no carrots really at an impasse that could prove catastrophic if it brings us

closer and closer toward a military confrontation to 100 thank you very much indeed u.s. politicians have accused border patrol agents in texas of mistreating migrants and keeping them in appalling conditions the comments went to visit by more than a dozen house members to 2 detention facilities in the region an official has more from washington. the congressional hispanic caucus and a number of other politicians have been done to clint in texas also el paso to the detention centers there they made the news just in the last week when lawyer said that the phone distressing scenes young children who were sick being cared for by other children and distressed youngsters who had been separated from their parents one of the delegation alexandria kasia cortez who comes from new york said that during the visit women had complained that there was no running water there and when they said something about it the guards told them to drink from the toilet
7:03 am
bowl when the delegation a matched from the detention center they were met by pro trump supporters who said that they were simply lying about the conditions there one congresswoman was clearly upset by what she's seen and she is the man doing action. should it. really get out there. was. really was a lie. where let me let me. let you know what. i did. the fire because it came just hours after it was revealed that there was a closed facebook group for border patrol agents where there were comments about attacking female legislators who were making the visit to the units on monday they
7:04 am

gator in chile the best place to see the rare event. the transparent skies of northern chile especially the region have turned this into the world's a strong many capital. but scientists aren't the only ones rushing to witness a cosmic event that is drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors here to see a total solar eclipse people say well what's question all about and why do you want to travel so far to see it after you see the eclipse you will know that this would be the american couples 16th have been chasing solar eclipses the world over in a full solar eclipse the position of the moon appears to fully cover the sun turning day into night it occurs somewhere on our planet roughly every 18 months but they're all different depending on the notation the position of the sun and the clarity of the sky on the this fringe family just arrived from paris and says they

expect this their 5th eclipse to be the best one yet yes it's an expensive hobby but once you see a full eclipse. you get addicted actually it's like you you want to see the next one. accommodation in the call kimball and atacama regions have been sold out for more than 6 months this is like a get up population $4000.00 where almost everybody is renting a room or their home or even just a little piece of land where people visitors can camp out and the reason is that this remote place has some of the best views of the stars of anywhere in the world and which according to astronomers will also give you some of the best deals although the eclipse. but for a strong reason physicists have also camped out here it's an opportunity to see elusive stars gather data or demonstrate this theory of relativity through these
7:18 am
telescopes so you will go to the better if you are able to see weak stars during a total eclipse we will be able to determine if the light is displaced and and demonstrate once again on stein's general theory of relativity and they said it's wonderful that's what sharon and byrne are bull cults have less ambitious expectations so i'm hoping to see stars in the daytime. if the weather cooperates as meteorologists predict she will more than likely get her wish to see in human light get that chilly. and one of the top stories around is there hong kong's chief executive has condemned protesters for being quote extremely violent after a day of furious demonstrations against chinese rule police officers used tear gas against demonstrators who blocked the streets and then return the legislature which had been occupied by protesters hundreds of people had broken into the legislative

the cure of revisited is up next more news for you after that thanks for watching by for their. plans to abolish the death penalty dividing the music with more than 1200 prisoners. one of $150.00. on al-jazeera. sophia there's something the venom can now be sent to one of our chief announces
7:22 am
he's not suited to being drawn. to say. sometimes it's very painful. sometimes taking a crack. you can't deal with the threat to human life unless you know it's that and that means detection is one of the most important parts of any health professionals work but here in east africa many of the most sophisticated diagnostic tools from genetic testing to nuclear imaging a simply too expensive i'm dr javid up the money in tanzania where scientists are busy turning local pests into a crack team of disease detectives. tough because giant house rats have an exceptional sense of smell and a dose on nature which nigger's e bay and his colleagues at the charger popo harnessing to save lives. look at
7:23 am
these rats the huge they even have names so here's this this is more you got a huge rat called mojo in his arms ok and this is a specially trained rat yeah trying to do was sleeping on it once detecting around a month. every morning the rats are taken to nearby training fields to practice sniffing out the explosive agent t.n.t. in the activated land mines. wars have left many african countries littered with millions of land mines and unexploded bombs. clearing them is notoriously dangerous slow and expensive. but a purpose here routes what 10 times faster than humans allowed to like to set off the mines and will work for peanuts or in this case bananas. in training the rats scratch the ground where they think they swallow mine since 2008 the rats trained here have cleared over 900 football fields worth of heavily mined land in
7:24 am
neighboring mozambique that is just the sea ice for when i benefit from q which is making a significant impact the natural fit for the bird to show you the office. as they've done so well at sniffing out minds the rats exceptional noses and now being put to work on one of africa's deadliest diseases so you just might and i'm launching the training these rats to smell is really in the history hypocrite doing this merely to detect some day it is so it's a something new every week sputum samples from 17 tb centers are sterilize for safety then screened in the papers lab which is the 1st in the world to use rats to diagnose disease so these are real actual tuberculosis kits and samples from local hospitals yeah this source what i'm sometimes called elected from suspected to be patients and all the samples have already been tested in hospital but outdated methods mean many tb cases a mess those that have been confirmed are left in to test the rats accuracy but
7:25 am
only one technician in the room knows which is which for all of the bars. in all the positives that the 2 hand is this sure they don't know the pollution and the right doesn't know if they're out just so that's what we call double blind test no doubt is created to sniff. the technicians want to see whether the rat scratch out . in the confirmed cases and if they suspect any of those. 30 things. it was you. so it indicated a little known positive click followed by 4 followed by food and number or so but they're not indicators but it was a note polluted from the center so he said suspect so we don't yet know that it could be positive if it's the wrong things it is now 10 percent over just one issue
7:26 am
yeah wow how long would that have taken microscopist. detroit says a single technician can quantify something that day by day here $25.00 some pills a day and this rapid $0.10 sound person a minute that's 10 fold 50 fold up on you can do the math that's very much faster. the rats cartney screen around $800.00 samples a week and news of their work is sporadic so i'm going to introduce you to janet janet is a former t.v. patient. how do you really want. to conquer some us attorney. simple little. you know when looking for. lesson if sick. people. have it in you. need to call one belief and they can fall. back to me one up on.
7:27 am
every week the rats flood up dozens of samples missed by hospitals which are then retested using a purpose up to date methods so they might really prepared this smears from this put them someplace else where it indicated by the rats that look this is suspect so he's going to stay in this smears so that sort of counter staining. that's integration process make sure that the only the bacterium itself picks up the color and everything else in the background will fade in deep trouble so that when you look at it under a microscope it's very obvious so here it's a microscope your own oh. so you know we turn the lights off so we're in the dog because this is a fluorescent dye and so the bacteria actually glow in the dark so i have a look here this is a look. right. this is there's a lot that i wouldn't even have to count up to a split 2nd to see that is at least 20300 bacterium and that feels so that's that's
7:28 am
really nice to see the rats have got it right it's you know i think you astrid she she she actually got a suspect case that is actually positive and that would have been missed with the ordinary diagnostic tools that we had in the community so that's brilliant more than 2600 patients were missed where the tb clinics but by their routes and confirmed here. since 2008 the rats have improved tb detection rates by 30 percent and with $45.00 new clinics to join the program next year these extraordinary burdens are set to save thousands more lives. planning coming in pushing. just on what he's saying getting topline people. living with traumas can make everyday life to close these involuntary muscle
7:29 am
movements a fact simply to start writing or even drive a car because. the medications can and the fact is they don't work and invasive risky brain surgery is often the next step i'm dr elizabeth here in ohio usa to find out about a new procedure they use it's not a static and the incision it's soldiery without. for most of our life 58 year old sonny has suffered with essential tremor and your logical disorder that causes involuntary muscle movements so yes. i create abnormal activity deep in the brain causes shaking which is especially noticeable in the house and something that can be extremely disabling and that's very fine if i could i think that was the last one i was able to do i can't do that on sunday how long have you had essential travel at. least since i was.
7:30 am
what is it worth to both my hands. it's in my head especially if i do any and to mouth motions i only drink out of a straw and not. going to someone's house to eat unless i know them last well that i just i don't do it i just don't do it brushing my teeth it's a nightmare i've damaged my gums again tell you how mean. i have scars all over my hands cooking can you show me what your writing is like. ok. that's hard work for you isn't it for the tramp through the table. can be very strong. so i can just make that out where the aim is sunny so fair when your body is doing something you can control. your bare.
7:31 am
bones is very painful. sometimes it can make me cry. because there's so many things i'd really like to do and i know i can do but i'm not out because in my hands. invasive surgery and radio surgery can be used to target the effect of cells that cause tremors from within the brain but these procedures carry significant risks surgeons and. scientists at ohio state university's works in a medical center are now trying a completely noninvasive technique focus on the site is a new technology that uses the power to focus on being. to go through the skull and meet at a central point within the brain and the energy from all these holes in beams come minds together and is powerful enough to all of us a small and precise vision of the brain is a bit like when you use a magnifying glass to concentrate light rays to burn something will stop fire yeah
7:32 am
absolutely so what are the advantages of this procedure over the current procedure is to with such a minute grandparents all focused on just how it is it being inaugurated is a trade show without opening the skull patients are overweight and you can look at their specific tremor while they are drawing objects or writing the immediate feedback that you get is a key part of this procedure that allows us to be accurate while the patient is still on the table so excited i think he did for sure. sunny is just the 7th person to undergo this new procedure at the what the medical center as part of a clinical trial. ok so sun is pretty much all set to sort of go into the machine because go in a film about it but we can soak it in and this is kind of the control sense that
7:33 am
this is the point what it's christian will be manipulating the controls to to get the facts he wants. to see the reconstruction of the sun is. known as long. as you go to school you can see this in the form of a school a lot of the ocean views you know john and mushroom please go. he brings home surely. this is the part of the dream when in life to be are here and you can see the ultrasound rays and coming in from all the different elements in the margins of this morning brain science all its nature and now the next step is to stop the the treatment step by step to see how much energy needs to lever to try to travel ok the father. was going.
7:34 am
to say something but start hearing. dr krishna treat sonny with 14 sessions of ultrasonic and known as sonic ations which will burn the fact cells in her brain each sunday cation loss around 10 to 15 seconds you know anything at all. hard to pick. up the aca will test her movement and right to monitor any improvement and determine how well the treatment is. so these are spiral drawings on the line for us her rights to see about her and i will give her some choice on occasions and the safest changes that take. 30 take. too much for 10 seconds. this is number 6 that's highest chair she said she was very interested in actually not rushing through this exciting stuff with greats this is the big one of the she said this is the big one you can get the full amount
7:35 am
of calls invasion thing we want. to know. what. she's done that's. the to say how can i just saying pointed straight last sunday keisha my mom. is going steady. sputnik. was a big grand and very big threat oh my what. i think speaks for itself there's nothing i know to prevent it's working you know so this treatment has been extraordinary today. and. to get their fix all. that stuff out here for. this was money well more than last. year. and i.
7:36 am
told. ready ready ready the following day i visit sunny to find out how she's getting on. getting on a mine a. pricey. music. pretty good pretty good. checks some of it is a book just my goodness me that there is another 2030 years to retrain your hands actually do stuff you want to do this or i do it kind of have to talk to a semi yesterday how we feel about the whole procedure are you aware that you're having as i was when i was and i was really hard not to like star jones. in that thing i was like. yeah i was by this like if i cut it's work
7:37 am
it's going to affect practically every moment make it everything absolutely everything. the team hope to get us government approval for this procedure by the end of the year which means that it will become available to other patients outside of the trial it's extraordinary to witness the immediate impact this has had on sonny and trying to make it through can i show you what you did us a. very good. and i. think. starvation. pretty good doubts. that. circle did you expect to do that. i've been hoping for you then. i guess sometimes hope come true.
7:38 am
most of us view venomous animals such as snakes scorpions and spiders as creatures to avoid it scientists believe that their toxic venom could be a vast untapped resource for the development of lifesaving drugs i'm dr jeff lacy and i'm here in the south of france on the hunt for some extraordinary animals with the potential to save lives the vinum next project is a collaboration of venom experts from across europe i mean to find new drugs capable of treating conditions such as cancer diabetes and cardiovascular disease. and this is my way to meet here is one of the lead scientists involved with an enormous project and him and his team hunting for school can say. yeah nice to meet good to meet you thank you for having me here it's crazy well yeah isn't it so we should go search your little girl field but. that's a big one so is it literally case of just picking up rocks and absolutely yeah in
7:39 am
the area. ok there's a problem well among the laws yeah all right we call them. well. and this assume that's the way it is. this is a member of the. media of scorpions does our little to. you know. thousands of people every year. in morocco in tunisia. in mexico. are no may be nervous it's not going to jump your legs angry. flame to me what exactly is involved with the project. the enemy is a large scale project aiming at discovery of new drugs instead of using for example medicinal plants to look at new york's we're using because they hold such
7:40 am
a high potential and the such a large number of. this seems slightly in congress that venom is designed to kill you could potentially be the source of life saving drugs but then again a poisonous plant also has the same properties and if you extract these compounds one of those compounds given to the right those age can actually cure you. of the search we should we should start lifting rocks here and here you go. talks of proteins or peptides within venom target and interact with a specific cell receptor is within the body affecting the vital functions of the heart nervous system blood or other tissues. it's the targeted nature of these toxins that gives an issue to potential for the development of drugs which have highly specific and effective therapeutic action. up to toss to find
7:41 am
a scorpion omar and off again its experts who have already found several themselves . for my pride i have to find one. for one. knee that's it. exactly. that's it we're really. going to do a show and. the estimates we have currently are about 40000000 money curious altogether from all the number sizable. we know about $3.00 to $4000.00 only basically we are key hunters we're looking we're looking to look at the long. interest you can find the keys to. the
7:42 am
cancer cell for example what century could be provided there is a suitable or receptor these creatures hold an immense potential for drug discovery the very nomics project has laboratories in france denmark spain belgium and portugal and the aim is to source the venom of over $500.00 species of animals including snakes jellyfish and cones noun's one appears partners in france is an expert in the breeding of large spiders. do you think. wow. hello. nice to me. i'm surrounded by spiders you're surrounded yeah i'm feeling very comfortable but. mentally ill they will be wonderful to some he was a day we sure in english is spiders sometimes called. boosting spiders and here you are breeding. spiders as well as not just find those.
7:43 am
to provide for the rituals for and you know them here and yes. why schools the society with the project because he's got the unique facility you probably have no more than 4 or 5 people in the world who can actually breed despite or is a military studying the diversity of the known world will allow us to uncover. a diversity of more each will suite different properties that i ask can we can we see some of them. this one is a huge one you see if you try to really come steel hungry surats. these this isn't on the cake because. it's a very large spider yeah the very is also quite put to the jury goes to viciously.
7:44 am
and can we see you know king some of the spiders as good as. it will. be to sleep. c.-o. apply and come dockside straight to the lungs up sort of thing. you can see. not only inches. in the ozone those lands covered from the sun on when they put some interesting causes the muscle to 2 tranches acts on the expose the minimum. oh yeah. yeah.
7:45 am
purist by your spine the superior this sample of venom can now be sent to your laboratory for analysis is never really got to be in dr fantastic. they just stuck to it slits it into the thank you so here the facility on his although there are some of the scorpions we collected previously we're going to extract some venom from this. options because we need for the project both venom and venom glands if you want to try you can have a go at milking ok yes so i will install the scorpion in a holder and then world stimulate it with a bit of it we call cart. i will 1st ground a scorpion gently we're going to put him here and you gotta hold this yeah i mean that's that's fine. but you're giving it giving a shark's my little trickle current can you see the venom drop yeah ok well that's
7:46 am
enough to run through and that it is absolutely absolutely. perfect you have. one smelt the team separate the venom into its constituent peptides which will then be added to a bank of molecules ready for an ounce of. this project has the same excitement in the fact that it is as you say this kind of leap into the pan knowing with such a strong chance you'll find something of interest you're exploring something that's never been exploited like going to other planets you know as a scientist intellectually extremely exciting and the singer reason for excitement is that you hope that you can make a difference one day and maybe out of all this work get a cure for something that's 2 reasons for being so it.

they went after several protests over the past 3 weeks some of them turning violent in clashes between protesters and police this group was able to force its way into the debating chamber in the legislative council facing very little resistance along the way they say they had no choice but to escalate the situation after becoming frustrated that the government wasn't listening to them and i think for many many young people. they didn't expect that it took so long for the government. to respond there are rallies every year on july the 1st which is the day 22 years ago that hong kong was handed back to china by great britain but there were a bunch of large numbers this year because of a proposed extradition law it would allow suspects in criminal cases to be sent to mainland china to face trial in the justice system that critics say is deeply flawed. the bill has been suspended but opponents want it scrapped altogether and

the resignation of hong kong's chief executive who spoke earlier on monday at a ceremony to mark the anniversary of all daniel for us the incident that happened in recent months has led to control of the free and disputes between the public and the government this has made me fully realise that i as a politician i have to remind myself all the time of the need to cross a public event missing accurately. the system agreed between great britain and china 22 years ago was one country 2 systems for 50 years but protesters believe that deal is being pushed aside by kerry lamb and 2 governments who they say are increasingly being dictated to by beijing. soon after police moved into their latest rally it was over the streets in the legislative council empty their defiance dispersed but they left their mark on what's supposed to be the center of power in hong kong there will no doubt be repercussions but they're vowing to continue a fight that they say has become about much more than
7:53 am
a proposal or it's about the future of the city wayne hay al jazeera hong kong. and for the latest we can now go live to sarah clarke in hong kong since sarah the chief executive gave a very unusual press conference in the early hours can you tell us what the gist of it was. 4 am this morning reacting to the overnight monday night's violence and the protests that were here she's condemned and blasted the action those protesters who are here vandalizing and smashing what you can see behind me the inside and outside of this building she said the violence and lawlessness here has affected the core values of hong kong's legal system and she's saddened by what she saw last of those protests and said should pursue prosecution of those who are involved the bill remained suspended she reiterated that her press conference but she's refused to dump it all together she's also refused to resign what she did start this press conference was that this bill will expire or as she said die by july 2020 which is when the ledge. but as i mentioned
7:54 am
the protesters want this dumped all together not withdrawn they want no part of this bill to be brought back on the table at any stage but she said also in the press conference that she's willing to listen to all sectors and that includes the city's youth and it is the city's youth who are here involved at the rally although it's of council. he's a short. short for what she said earlier at the press conference. the extreme use of violence and vandalism by protesters who stormed into the legislative council building over a period of time so this is something that we should seriously condemn because nothing is more important than the rule of law in hong kong so i hope community at large will agree with us that with these violent acts that we have seen it is right for us to condemn it. we found that there was some protest tampering with
7:55 am
the electricity part only find that some of the lights have gone out and in fear of total dark out there the protest while charging someone turned off the light i'm afraid that there will be people stepping people there were already a toxic powder. on my office in the afternoon so without knowing whether this is in their talks. we have no other choice but to temporarily retreat from that call. so sorry after a very mindful day and night does it look like more protests are planned than any indication of what's going to happen to those protesters. well it's 7 am here in hong kong on tuesday morning and of course the sun has just risen and
7:56 am
the aftermath of the extent of the damage has just been revealed at the moment there are no protests planned that the protesters will move only this morning it's the clean up we've got a number of police come on the early shift here on tuesday and they're starting to clean up as well outside in front of me you can see basically all the barricades in the middle roads that were used to smash these windows there are piles of those there are trucks literally craning this at the damage back into these trucks and removing it so it's going to take time number one to fix this and to repair the damage inside and out as you can see it's completely trashed as you mentioned before there's also a lot of graffiti and the mine message here is hong kong is not china that's for more protests which regards to the key demands of what these protesters wanted it was number one kerry lamb the chief executive in hong kong to resign a 2nd later they want this bill dropped and neither of those 2 items or a list that list of items were mentioned in caroline's press conference at 4 am this morning here on tuesday in hong kong thank you very much sarah clarke with the latest from hong kong. well andrew thomas takes
7:57 am
a look at the extent of the damage inside the legislative building this is after protesters were cleared out by police. you can see the graffiti that the protest is still one of the still they says one hong kong is not china and that is the same throughout the building even in the legislative chamber itself which is from here the facey and everything smashed this is the gift shop of the legislative shanda again completely smashed up and all over the floor broke the glass and there are things that the successes and sells goes into this building a lot of rubbish a lot of eggs in fighting against the loans and the fencing units that were used to snatch down the bills in the 1st place to get access to the building and then of the rides as well throughout this process is felt they needed to occupy this building to make a point but the place wanted to make
7:58 am
a point as well that they weren't going to get involved until they felt they had to say and once the protesters were in a people in this building that is when they sent out messages on social media the place and via phone comes media telling those inside that they were going to come in that they weren't going to stand for this kind of destruction and about an hour and a half off of that by which to on and must be said most of those inside the $101.00 point must have left but then they arrived in their odds with a lot of fools to gas basons and they went off to those who remain very hard. and our correspondent in beijing catriona you has more on how the chinese government is seeing these developments. beijing also only watching the situation in hong kong very closely from their perspective what has happened in ledge co is unthinkable it's a direct affront to beijing's power and it's pretty much a humiliation to beijing's authority and they're very keen to see it put under
7:59 am
control very quickly and it's also put into question their support for kerry lam of the past few weeks in june as people have protested against the extradition will beijing has a maintain their support of carolan but seeing what they've seen tonight that may not be the case moving forward now so far here in beijing it's been very quiet in the early hours of the morning which is really seeming to say that the senses here in beijing are really in overdrive trying to really clamp down on any pictures of what's happening in hong kong these are pictures that they don't want to be seen here in the mainland they want to maintain this position that everything is is homeowners that the people in hong kong are in fact celebrating what's happening. in terms of this anniversary of hong kong's return to the to the mainland so they definitely do not want this to get out too quickly but we already started to see some formulation of a response no official response from the government yet but
8:00 am
a response from global times which is a state media newspaper here and what this global times have said on their way ball count which is a chinese twitter they've said that they've this has been really nothing more than more violence why it is who've gone out of control and they've really just put this protest down to troublemakers outlie is and people who really are not part of the mainstream hong kong here but certainly we're going to see a very strong response from beijing come the morning when beijing wakes up they're not going to want to see any sort of weak response they want to make sure that a message gets sent to those in hong kong that this is unacceptable and this cannot happen again. child ever are the former british diplomats and he was involved in preparing for hong kong's handover to china he says the protesters deficient to occupy the legislative council building not to get them any sympathy. this kind of violent act doesn't really go down well in hong kong as i said
8:01 am
a heavily ordered society not the kind of place where people like to see the violence that has been splashed all across the television screens today. a very large number of people came out to to demand the retraction of the bill and many of them demanding more fundamental reforms to the hong kong system of governance but if these acts of ours continue then i think that support might start to rove if you replace caroline who do you put in her stead and how is that change actually going to help you deal with the fundamental problems also changing your chief executive at this point looks weak fact we capitulated to the protesters demands so i don't want either the chinese government has been very restrained in its reaction to events in hong kong so far the one set of shop words it had a press conference a day for the united kingdom where they condemned meddling and said that united kingdom ought to know its place a great tory and phrase and reiterated their view that ever since the handover what
8:02 am
happens in hong kong is china's problem not ours. well we have plenty more ahead this news hour including 6 months after a stunning electoral victory we take a look at the challenges facing brazil's far right president. and iraq moves to limit the influence of the country's powerful iran backed paramilitary groups. and sports a 15 year old causes one of the biggest shocks in wimbledon history. u.s. president donald trump says iran is playing with fire that it's off to the u.n. nuclear watchdog confirmed that tear on his talk piling more enriched uranium that allowed by the 2050 nuclear deal that washington's warned that it will never allow iran to develop nuclear weapons and that it will continue its maximum pressure
8:03 am
campaign until terror on changes its course here's what trump told reporters at the white house. to the room. to do that you know with the airplane with. playing with fire so to run whatsoever well earlier rounds foreign minister said tear on dogs have the right to exceed the limit that's because the 2050 nuclear deal has not been upheld. as i've been informed iran has exceeded the 300 kilogram limit to enrich uranium we had previously announced this and we were transparent in saying what we are going to do we consider our right reserved in the nuclear deal. per your coffee and. actions by the europeans have not been enough so we will move ahead with our plan we are in the process of doing our 1st phase of action increasing our stockpile of enriched uranium as well as our heavy water reserves we have already announced a 2nd phase which would be surpassing the u.
8:04 am
rhenium enrichment limit of 3.6 percent this will be our next step. in paris where she takes a look at the challenges facing the european signatories to the nuclear deal. over the past few weeks as tensions have been escalating between washington and tehran european powers of repeatedly called on the 2 sides for calm to deescalate the situation and they've also called on iran to keep its commitments under 2015 deal what they don't want to be is in a position where we're going to have paris berlin london and the e.u. suddenly being in a position where they're going to have to concede that iran has broken its commitments to the deal that would be a concession that their diplomatic powers of collapse would be a huge blow to their diplomatic credibility and they would be very worried indeed about the possibility of iran having a nuclear weapon is something that of course this deal is supposed to prevent the
8:05 am
problem is that the european powers have not yet come up with some sort of method or mechanism to shield the iranian economy from the full force of u.s. sanctions they put in place something called in stakes it's a payment system that quanta was dollar payments that allows for some trade between europe and iran so far it can only be used for humanitarian goods or some medical goods food and aid it is not enough though to try and persuade big multinationals like the french giant total to do trade with iran again and risk u.s. penalties and that really is the problem because european powers simply haven't managed to come up with something to shield the iranian economy from the full force of u.s. sanctions and in a way iran is certainly turning up the pressure on european powers to do more ok let's go to washington d.c. where john hendren is standing by john what else is beer for the ministrations thing. it's interesting to see the contrast in how donald trump deals with
8:06 am
different nations when it comes to nuclear nonproliferation he just came back from north korea where he was willing to step over the demilitarized zone to shake hands with kim jong un where he seems to be offering a lot of carrot and very little stick and with iran it's completely the opposite the president is offering all stick and no carrot insisting that this maximum pressure campaign will continue and that iran not be allowed to have a nuclear weapon. the white house issued a statement in addition to what the president said expanding on that saying it was a mistake under the iran nuclear deal to allow iran to enrich uranium and any at any level there is little doubt that even before the deal's existence along with iran was violating its terms it says we must restore the longstanding nonproliferation standard of no enrichment for iran the united states and its allies will never allow iran to develop nuclear weapons so a very harsh stance from the president on iran and it's in contradiction contrast
8:07 am
rather to what he's doing in approach to north korea from this time point over there what does it look like iran is trying to achieve. well iran wants to get out of these sanctions that are crippling its economy and the u.s. clearly is not cooperating so it's turning to europe hoping to do more trade with europe but of course europe has these secondary sanctions that would allow the u.s. to punish europe for trading with iran so iran has very few options one of them is to ratchet up this campaign of not complying with this agreement you've seen it 1st of all they've increased the stockpiles of uranium to beyond the agreed levels and now they're talking about exceeding the level at which they enrich that iranian which would bring them closer to a nuclear program so they're acting on that part but they are also trying to ratchet up pressure in the strait the strait of hormuz to restrict trade on the one
8:08 am
hand they are they've shot down a u.s. surveillance drone there and the u.s. says that it is iran or iran allied militias that are behind attacks on 4 commercial ships there so pressure on both sides but no real way right now to vent this growing conflict between the u.s. and iran without any talk of a deal right now so that tension just increases and that could result in the kind of military conflict the president says we were 10 minutes away from just weeks ago thank you very much john headed in washington for us well stay in the u.s. p.j. crowley is a former united states assistant secretary of state and he joins us on skype from alexandria virginia thank you very much for coming on the program the u.s. has always maintained that it will have a strategy of maximum pressure and that will continue now what form does that now take given the latest developments from iran. well the dilemma for the trump of
8:09 am
ministration is that and for europe as john just said is that these sanctions have been surprisingly effective they've had a dramatic effect in tehran and you don't have a situation where either you know the europeans can find a sector. course around the sanctions or the tehran can just wait out the trump administration and hope that u.s. policy changes in in 2021 but the the other for the trump administration is that there really isn't a diplomatic path forward. in a sense you know the american policy of maximum pressure undermines its objectives weaning iran away from its nuclear ambitions even before this missile the u.s. and iran and the u.s. in particular are moving towards the brink of conflict how likely is that now. i
8:10 am
don't think it's likely but certainly we are closer to conflict and we are closer to an iranian breakout than we were say 2 years ago. you know part of the dilemma here is that tehran says it needs the domestic enrichment because it doesn't trust international agreements it doesn't trust supply that the international community provide iran what it needs you know for medical isotopes things like that and then the trip administration decision to withdraw from j.c. peel away and in essence renegotiate what what has been agreed to just reinforces that skepticism in iran that it can trust international community in general and the united states of really isn't a path for it mr john just said that means the pressure is building with no ability you know to vent why do you think iran has chosen to escalate at this point in time and if that's likely to backfire on them. it's
8:11 am
a very good question i think if you look at the politics in tehran you know there's a part of the hardliners near who are deeply skeptical of the iran agreement they'd love to see the iran agreement unravel and as you see there are hardliners you're the united states you know who courage for us let's do what he did and to withdraw some juice you know a way that makes the task of diplomacy going forward that much more difficult p.j. crowley thank you very much good to speak to you always a pleasure. back has agreed to cut oil production for another 9 months in order to boost global prices the major bloc of oil producers made the decision at a meeting in vienna the extension still needs approval of non opec allies who are meeting on tuesday opec has cut oil production since 2017 but in that time the u.s. has become the world's top oil producer ahead of russia and saudi arabia and forces

the love of books on al-jazeera. hello again you're watching out is there and here's a reminder for top stories please at home kong have used tear gas against protesters who stormed the city's legislature the violence occurred shortly after hundreds of thousands of people marched peacefully to protest on the day the territory marked 22 years since the handover to china. hong kong speeding back chief executive kerry land condemned the protesters for being quote extremely
8:19 am
violent she said it was heartbreaking to see so many young demonstrators break the law and once again rejected calls to resign. u.s. president donald trump says iran is playing with fire and warned that washington will never allowed to develop nuclear weapons a u.n. watchdog confirmed that iran has talked more and richer uranium that allowed under the 2015 you clear deal. let's go back to our top story and victoria is a political science professor at the university of notre dame she testified in front of congress to discuss the 2014 hong kong umbrella movement and joins us by skype from new york good to have you on the program and you have studied the evolution of hong kong protests particularly since the umbrella movement which is largely peaceful the actions we saw overnight were unprecedented why do you think it's taken such a turn. well the one thing we have to keep in mind is that so carolyn that she
8:20 am
decided to see how the press conference and. why this she choose this particular time was because she hit targets where the international media she wanted all of the international you can use to show that to to help her and the protesters is and then what exactly the 1st 2 tests to distinguish this don't mean to the legislative council the use metals and they also ventilate is. up pictures of the shows big on the walls in a lot of these things but the same time when they were hungry and thirsty west they came to it could be necessary amount of money so that the ringback answer is still anything so this is the kind of dollars that we're talking about and the student the young people they had in mind and they were in teaching what young people did in taiwan treatise on slow movement and afterwards then nationalist party wanted to charge a lot of these people and they to are all charges dropped so in time when it's
8:21 am
wasn't really this is a balance of income cause of how it's going to balance victoria with the one thing we have seen as a lot of international sympathy towards the young protesters in hong kong particularly because it's been nonviolent been very measured in their approach previously how do you think it's good this has been now going to play out internationally are they still going to get the sympathy that we've seen. in the way they're so it's actually that carrie lovely wants to target but she was telling all the evening news that you know these young people give really not spring and those are 2 of the poems but at the same time i think the rest of the world have to have criticizing what exactly is you know what these young people and also with these young people who sometimes they call radicals and extremists but what happens is that they are kind of extreme in the sense that they're willing to put on can you. can literally how you circus leaves to so far what young people need to see
8:22 am
in these people in a way that they know when i looking into the legislative council building that is going to have to pay huge prices for it but it's still willing to sacrifice themselves prior to this carillon was under a lot of pressure and he came under criticism extreme creative if them and even a team china was distancing itself from her but now it seems like this has galvanized to beijing support for her do you think that it's back far. i would say that it's you're quite right that when that's just the scene it's very organized very orderly and you know i have to tool it and 2000000 strong photos when some of the age that all those trees are very clean is not a piece of garbage and it is true that i actually got the notices international supports a lot of that just to get young people use the metal parsed into the legislative council quite right but at same time beijing was slow to do what it was going to do
8:23 am
and in fact a lot of the people over the last week they have hardened their lines and b. is just that's what that happened the last time on wednesday when it's june 12th when the protesters brought that so that the legislators did not even compete in meeting to pass the extradition law and then the police use excessive buttons and after that so those instances the time they can actually hardly need to position colleen that you please to do you know whatever necessary correct i grew but you know i'm confident only place we're going to see these kinds of protests but in greater china how long do you think beijing if going to tolerate these kind the kind of to defend. this is a good question people they all there was a jesus restrained in hong kong except that hong kong he's really never supposed to be just like a chinese uncle is friends of my country. and was these young people fighting for
8:24 am
is not something that you don't have the edge is trying to. enjoy and so you have agent would you send in the people's liberation army to crack down on the men that would be the end of it is not that and of course they also. didn't want the laundry they can't use it in the studio it's still in military. use. thank you so much victoria great to speak to you. with the university of notre dame thank you. funeral processions have been taking place throughout saddam after 11 people were killed during mass protests on sunday when hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets they were demanding an immediate handover of power to civilian led government the military says security forces responded with force this after being attacked by protesters by the main

8:29 am
iraq's prime minister. has ordered the country's powerful paramilitary groups to be integrated into the armed forces have been ordered to comply with the orders by the end of the month the prime minister says offices and checkpoints operated by militia groups must be shut down currently most of iraq's perelman's paramilitary groups are believed to be backed by iran. jim has more from baghdad. the decree by i doubt the prime minister i did i believe it was both expected but still significant this decree in which the prime minister essentially ordered the popular mobilization forces and all other armed groups affiliated with the top of the mobilization forces to integrate with in their docky military structure well it's just the latest in a series of decrees that have been leading to this this is something that they're off to government and the prime minister has been wanting to see and have been signaling the last few weeks and months the timing is certainly significant with
8:30 am
this escalating tension between the 2 main allies the u.s. and iran as you'll remember in may u.s. secretary of state mike comp aoe made a surprise visit to iraq in which he spoke with the prime minister and other alfie officials about what the u.s. said was a threat toward u.s. interests in that up by iran there has been a concern by the u.s. and by other allies of it up that the popular mobilization forces have other fighting groups that are aligned with them and that those fighting groups are supported by or affiliated with iran and so now you have the prime minister saying that the popular mobilization forces which is predominantly shia armed groups that they must integrate with in their it up the military structure that can no longer be political wings and military wings that they must be part of that up the military now what's going to be interesting to see is the reaction going forward
8:31 am
now another reason that we believe that this is certainly something that was expected is because influential at. the souther just shortly after the prime minister made these decrees supported the prime minister and said that the armed group that's part of the part of the mobilization forces affiliated with him that he was going to sever ties with it and that that group should now be a part of the alkie military establishment but we don't yet know is how the other groups affiliated with the popular mobilization force are going to react to government structure that up the military structure it's all very complicated and so it's going to be very interesting to see in the days and weeks ahead how exactly these groups are going to react to these decrees. so the leaders will meet for the 3rd time on tuesday after failing to pick a new president despite more than 20 hours of negotiations they're divided over who should succeed john claude younker as the european commission president eastern european countries object of france timmermans the dutch socialist politician who

has the backing of germany spain and france a french president has criticized the delay as a bad look for the bloc. i believe in the long term we will drop all the consequences of sort of 5 years our credibility is deeply doubly by these long lead things that lead to nothing we give in if you will but that's not serious. german foreign minister heiko mas has warned that they were arrested for german ship captain in italy could lead to considerable aggravation and called for her immediate release curler record day has appeared in the sicilian court after being detained on saturday when she talked to a vessel carrying dozens of migrants on the island of lampedusa the 31 year old has been accused of deliberately ramming the sea watch 3 rescue vessel into a police boat that was trying to stop her from entering the port and a court in moscow has jailed russian opposition leader alex enough for 10 days for taking part in a street demonstration the rally was among hundreds of protesters who were detained

8:51 am
they went after several protests over the past 3 weeks some of them turning violent in clashes between protesters and police this group was able to force its way into the debating chamber in the legislative council facing very little resistance along the way they say they had no choice but to escalate the situation after becoming frustrated that the government wasn't listening to them and i think for many many young people. they didn't expect that it took so long for the government. to respond there are rallies every year on july the 1st which is the day 22 years ago that hong kong was handed back to china by great britain but there were much larger numbers this year because of a proposed extradition law it would allow suspects in criminal cases to be sent to mainland china to face trial in the justice system that critics say is deeply flawed. the bill has been suspended but opponents want it scrapped altogether and

is from here the safety and everything smashed this is the gift shop of the legislative china again completely smashed up and all over the floor is broken glass and there are things that the cessna's themselves goes into this building a lot of rubbish a lot of eggs in front against the loans and the fencing units that were used to smash down the those in the 1st place to get access to the building and then the thing drags in as well throughout this process is felt they needed to occupy this building to make a point but the place wanted to make a point as well that they weren't going to get involved until they felt they had seized and once the protesters were in a people in this building that is when they sent out messages on social media the place and via phone comes media telling those inside that they were going to come in that they weren't going to stand for this kind of destruction and about an hour

and a half off of that by which to on and must be said most of those inside the $101.00 point must have left but then they arrived in their eyes with a lot of fools to gas basons and they went off with those who remain very hard. katrina you has more on how the chinese government to seeing these developments. beijing also only watching the situation in hong kong very closely from their perspective what has happened in ledge co is unthinkable it's a direct affront to beijing's power and it's pretty much a humiliation to beijing's authority and they're very keen to see it put under control very quickly and it's also put into question their support for kerry lam of the past few weeks in june as people have protested against the extradition will beijing has a maintain their support of carolan but seeing what they've seen tonight that may not be the case moving forward now so far here in beijing it's been very quiet in
8:57 am
the early hours of the morning which is really seeming to say that the senses here in beijing are really in overdrive trying to really clamp down on any pictures of what's happening in hong kong these are pictures that they don't want to be seen here in the mainland they want to maintain this position that everything is is homeowners that the people in hong kong are in fact celebrating what's happening. in terms of this anniversary of hong kong's return to the to the mainland so they definitely do not want this to get out too quickly but we already started to see some formulation of a response no official response from the government yet but a response from global times which is a state media newspaper here and what this global times have said on their way ball count which is a chinese twitter they've said that they've this has been really nothing more than more violence why it is who've gone out of control and they've really just put this protest down to troublemakers outlie is and people who really are not part of
8:58 am
mainstream hong kong here but certainly we're going to see a very strong response from beijing come the morning when beijing wakes up they're not going to want to see any sort of weak response they want to make sure that a message gets sent to those in hong kong that this is unacceptable and this cannot happen again. ok let's go back to hong kong where sarah clarke is standing by with the latest fitzgeralds the morning after the night's events what's the public reaction. well look at the public reaction starting business starting work as you mention it i am people are dropping in here to have a look just to see the extraordinary turn of events and the damage and the vandalism and good ficci that now is alleged as i mentioned in previous chats it's trashed inside and out the aftermath is literally the cleanup we've got trucks outside picking up the basically the barricades that the metal rods all of the

9:00 am
than allowed by the 2015 nuclear deal washington warned that it will never allow iran to develop nuclear weapons and it will continue its maximum pressure campaign until tehran changes its course here's what trump told reporters at the white house moments and through the room very little to do with you know with the airplane with the playing with fire. to run it whatsoever. well earlier iran's foreign minister says have the right to exceed the limit because the 2050 nuclear deal had not been an up held. as i've been informed iran has exceeded the 300 kilogram limit to enrich uranium we had previously announced they simply were transparent in saying what we are going to do we consider our right reserved in the nuclear to. your coffee and. actions by the europeans have not been enough so we will move ahead with our plan we are in the process of doing our 1st phase of action
9:01 am
increasing our stockpile of enriched uranium as well as our heavy water reserves we have already announced a 2nd phase which would be surpassing the rhenium enrichment limit of 3.6 percent this will be our next step. as hash about lawyers in paris where she looks at the challenges facing the european signatories to the nuclear deal. over the past few weeks as tensions have been escalating between washington and tehran european powers of repeatedly called on the 2 sides for calm to deescalate the situation and they've also called on iran to keep its commitments under 2015 deal what they don't want to be is in a position where we're going to have paris berlin london and the e.u. suddenly being in a position where they're going to have to concede that iran has broken its commitments to the deal that would be a concession that their diplomatic powers of collapse would be a huge blow to their diplomatic credibility and they would be very worried indeed
9:02 am
about the possibility of iran having a nuclear weapon is something that of course this deal is supposed to prevent the problem is that the european powers have not yet come up with some sort of method or mechanism to shield the iranian economy from the full force of u.s. sanctions they put in place something called instead of payment system that quanta was dollar payments that allows for some trade between europe and iran so far it can only be used for humanitarian goods or some medical goods food and aid it is not enough though to try and persuade big multinationals like the french oil giant total to do trade with iran again and risk u.s. penalties and that really is the problem because european powers simply haven't managed to come up with something to shield the iranian economy from the full force of u.s. sanctions and in a way iran is certainly turning up the pressure on european powers to do more well
9:03 am
that's the view from irregular to them go to washington d.c. where john hendren is standing by sir john what's the u.s. administration saying about this what's being seen as an african nation. there's a dramatic contrast between the way the u.s. views nuclear nonproliferation in different countries take north korea president trump just left there he was willing to cross the d.m.z. and shake hands with kim jong il in north korea is a country that has nuclear weapons and the president said he would be patient for an agreement there now look at iran he's not patient for an agreement there he's not talking about it and he has this maximum pressure campaign that he insists the u.s. will carry out and the white house put out a statement in addition to what the president said saying that there should have been no enrichment allowed whatsoever under that 2015 agreement and it said that probably iran was violating that all along that white house statement goes on to say quote maximum pressure on the iranian regime will continue until its leaders
9:04 am
alter their course of action the merge the regime must end its nuclear ambitions and its malign behavior so very harsh talk from the administration on iran not a lot of incentives being offered there so john has he said that the u.s. has consistently been sending out warnings and even at one point even before this has come to the brink of conflict with iran so what does it seem like iran is trying to achieve. well iran is trying to get out from under these sanctions that have been crippling its economy it is clear the united states is not going to do more trade with iran as a result of that so they've turned to europe however europe faces secondary sanctions from the united states if it violates that agreement and does more trade with iran so iran has very few other options and one of the things it can do is simply not comply with his agreement which is doing not only increasing its
9:05 am
stockpiles of uranium but also threatening as you saw the iranian foreign minister say just they're threatening to increase the level at which they enrich that uranium bringing them closer to a military nuclear project there's another thing that they are doing now and that is threatening to disrupt trade in the strait of hormuz that is where a 3rd of the liquid natural gas in the in the world goes through 20 percent of the oil so they shot down a u.s. global surveillance global hawk surveillance plane there and the u.s. says they are also behind attacks on 4 commercial ships so the pressure continues to ratchet up and as the u.s. and iran maintain this standoff with neither side really giving any ground the threat of a military conflict like the one president trump says we were 10 minutes away from just weeks ago busy just increases divya thank you very much that's john hendren and washington for us. and still ahead on there are iraq moves to limit the

9:10 am
more from baghdad. the decree by it off the prime minister odd that i believe it was both expected but still significant this decree in which the prime minister essentially order the popular mobilization of forces and all other armed groups affiliated with the top of the mobilization forces to integrate with in their docky military structure well it's just the latest in a series of decrees that have been leading to this this is something that they're off to government and the prime minister has been wanting to see and have been signaling the last few weeks and months the timing is certainly significant with this escalating tension between the 2 main allies the u.s. and iran as you'll remember in may u.s. secretary of state my comp aoe made a surprise visit to iraq in which he spoke with the prime minister and other off the officials about what the u.s. said was a threat toward u.s. interests in that up by iran there has been a concern by the u.s.
9:11 am
and by other allies of it up that the popular mobilization forces have other fighting groups that are aligned with them and that those fighting groups are supported by or affiliated with iran and so now you have the prime minister saying that the popular mobilization forces which is predominantly shia armed groups that they must integrate with in their up the military structure that can no longer be political wings and military wings that they must be part of that up the military now what's going to be interesting to see is the reaction going forward now another reason that we believe that this is certainly something that was expected is because influential at off the shia cleric. just shortly after the prime minister made these decrees supported the prime minister and said that the armed group that's part of the part of the mobilization forces affiliated with him that he was going to sever ties with it and that that group should now be a part of the alkie military establishment but we don't yet know is how the other
9:12 am
groups affiliated with the popular mobilization force are going to react to government structure that up the military structure it's all very complicated and so it's going to be very interesting to see in the days and weeks ahead how exactly these groups are going to react to these decrees. funeral processions have been taking place throughout after 11 people were killed protests on sunday hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets they were demanding an immediate handover of power to a civilian government the military says security forces responded after being attacked by protesters of the main opposition coalition is calling for an independent inquiry and i have. made it clear to the ethiopian african mediation that there should be a time limit for the mediation process and it should not go on forever the struggle of the sudanese people will continue with its commitment to its peaceful methods until the objectives of the revolution are achieving are peaceful tools including

this remote place has some of the best views of the stars of anywhere in the world and which according to astronomers will also give you some of the best deals although the eclipse. but for astronomers and physicists who are also camped out here it's an opportunity to see elusive stars gather data or demonstrate this theory of relativity through these telescopes so you will go to the better if you are able to see weak stars during a total eclipse we will be able to determine if the light is displaced him and demonstrate once again on stein's general theory of relativity and they said it's wonderful it's one sharon and burn our book cults have less ambitious expectations so i'm hoping to see stars in the daytime. if the weather cooperates as media or all or just predict she will more than likely get her wish to see in human light get at chilly.

here watching out if there are let me take you through our top stories police in hong kong have used tear gas against protesters to stay on the city's legislature the violence occurred shortly after hundreds of thousands of people marched peacefully to protest on a day of the territory marked 22 years since they had over to china but hong kong's beijing backed chief executive kerry condemned the actions of the protesters. extreme use of violence and vandalism by protesters who stormed into the legislative council building over a period of time so this is something that we should seriously condemn because nothing is more important than the rule of law in hong kong so i hope community at large will agree with us that with these violent acts that we have seen it is right
9:20 am

a campaign to take the capital in april inside stories next. pushing for civilian rule in sudan several people have been killed and hundreds more injured in the protest organizers cold a 1000000 man march but all the generals prepared to share power and put the country slide into further turmoil this is inside story.
9:22 am
hello again welcome to the program i'm peter davi it was the biggest protests that don has seen since the military violently broke up a sits in khartoum nearly a month ago tens of thousands of people protested on sunday once again calling on the military to hand over power to civilians several people were killed and hundreds more were injured the military council and the opposition have failed to reach an agreement over who should be in charge ethiopia and the african union working to bring them to the negotiating table as saddam's military now says it's ready to resume talks really will get the thoughts of our guest in just a moment but 1st this report from the moment. the message remains the same as it has for months demanding sudan's military rulers hand over power to a civilian the government. tens of thousands of protesters march towards the presidential palace in khartoum opposition leaders call for similar mass
9:23 am
demonstrations nationwide dubbed the 1000000 strong march. we doubled to feel like we stopped we want people to feel like we will continue continue no matter what everyone is out so we encourage each other. in some cases police fired tear gas at protesters the rapid support forces patrolled the streets with machine guns they were accused of the crackdown at a sit in at army headquarters in khartoum on june around $100.00 protesters were killed. in the eastern town of gunfire was heard the military gentle says it's not to blame for recent violence. the military is here to protect protesters but we can't do anything when it comes to infiltrators 5 or 6 people have been hit and we need to go there to sort out the problem you have to know that there are infiltrators people who want to change the current situation but god willing if we reach an agreement and if you understand
9:24 am
the situation we will get rid of the snipers who are killing the people right now. sunday's mass marches with the 1st since the killings in khartoum 4 weeks ago and internet and media blackout has been enforced since then the protests coincide with the end of the african union deadline for the ruling military junta to hand over power to a you and ethiopia have led mediation efforts to find a political solution the opposition has accepted a plan to form a transitional government for the next 3 years the transitional military council says it's willing to negotiate. sunday was also the 30th anniversary of the military coup led by omar al bashir sudan's present. it was overthrown by another military coup in april and is in prison charged with corruption activists edging arab countries to stop supporting sudan's military rulers they will never want to flower not because they are nice but also because they're going to be implicated if they are out of war so that's very normal very natural to what we are forcing them
9:25 am
so unless we do that by that mainly i'm speaking about saudi arabia the u.a.e. then it's going to be really hard for us to meet them come to succumb or be able to wait and i think this is changing now. the protesters say their chance of defiance will continue despite threats to their lives until their demands for civilian rule on met for hillah mohammed al jazeera. there we are here we go let's bring in our guests joining us today in doha adam a research associate at the school of oriental and african studies part of the university of london and joining us from nairobi alan boswell senior analyst with the international crisis group welcome to you both alan boswell the nairobi 1st can the protesters in sudan ever get what they want. well generally protesters don't
9:26 am
bother going out on the streets if they are completely hopeless everyone was doubting the sudanese people in december when they started this people were doubting them in april before they toppled bashir from power and then also after the crackdown on june 3rd there was more doubting that they could continue these after the violence and the internet shutdown so i think at this point everyone needs to recognize that while the military council you know does have some form of power in terms of their their guns on the street and the violence they can they can wield and the deep state the protesters also have a real form of street power and they've proven over and over again basically that they can make a sudan ungovernable until their demands are also met. here in doha has the regime really gone away. no of course i think
9:27 am
the give me the sylvia and i thing the devious shit and the counter you know devolution is in full fledge there is no question about that him it out of the the sheet of men actually that is and let's not forget actually dispy full actually that i would of that what you call the high super committee which she i mean security committee which was established by bush if they just replace bush it because bush you for them was a liability actually a head to the head of our political ambitions and then when they removed him and they took power and they supported actually that moment of revolution which of us actually carried out by the danish people the peaceful demonstrators but this took forget that you know if there is any doubt that this dentist people are not going to get action at their demands and aspiration for a democratic transformation a civilian rule actually yesterday there was a clear answer to anyone who doubted that allen you mentioned the internet how could well the protesters the demonstrators when that was blocked. well clearly it
9:28 am
took them a while of course the the crackdown was on june 3rd these these protests happened yesterday so it took several weeks but they have managed to find a number of ways of of continuing to communicate of course they're still s.m.s. and phone network where they can communicate and then others have found ways of using international roaming phone networks basically to continue using internet and they've also gone back to just old school organizing methods. to continue organizing these protests i actually i was in khartoum in the protest in early 2011 and there was a crackdown then and actually young activists started mobilizing basically with small cells and cell groups because the because they realized the regime was using the electronic communications basically against them to tap in and infiltrate their networks so there's a so it did force them to go underground and change their tactics but i think you
9:29 am
know the proof is in the putting these are these protests yesterday's were huge they were across the country and it's shown that this uprising even if you cut off the internet is going to continue because it has that large of a broad base of support among the sudanese people i think it's really important to recognize that the military council. you know their power can be overstated and i think often has been overstated by by many who just assume that they can just crack down on everyone and continue ruling that way you know they have a very limited political constituency especially in khartoum in some ways they're their largest but a constituency is actually outside sudan in egypt the u.a.e. and saudi arabia so you know they whether or not they can move forward without having really a popular basis i think is the key question and they've been trying to wiggle their way back and forward to hang on to power but i think you know these continued demonstrations from the sudanese people just show the you know what. we're going up
9:30 am
against in that shouldn't be underestimated both in terms of sunni's resolve but also just in terms of the real power and strength that the sudanese people have at the moment we've also now been joined from shanghai by early verjee visiting researcher at the united states institute of peace welcome to you verjee there is in theory the beginnings in him an embryo of some sort of framework that's been put together by the african union and ethiopia the ethiopian prime minister is front and center in this he's local he's there he's next door almost is there anything in there that would suggest to you there is a grain of positivity. well actually prime minister he is not as front and center as we might always hope that he has an envoy who is largely doing the work and that's an indication of just how much abi has to do himself both at home and abroad
9:31 am
but i think the proposal that has been developed by the african union and the european mediators in some sense it's positive because it demonstrates that there are things that can be negotiated agreed in no sense is a sideshow because it hasn't fundamentally changed the structural realities of both the protests and of the council the military council's response so there are some good principles in there but it doesn't necessarily address how the military and security sector will be removed from state control not only in khartoum but also in all of sudan's states which are led by military governors at the moment and where most of sudanese lives and that's really therefore in some sense a much more important question for the future governance and so far the ethiopian african union mediation hasn't really been able to get beyond the structures and the powers and the numbers of any transitional authority is in khartoum and it's
9:32 am
also remember that this is only a means to an end the transitional administration is not supposed to be there for a very long period of time we're talking about 2 or 3 or 4 years as the numbers that have been tossed around but that is a transition to something and that's really again a question of can that really be achieved and what does that transition look like and maybe the mediation isn't there now but certainly for most of knees it's not simply about having a long period of uncertainty leading to more misgovernance and mismanagement but something that looks a lot more positive and a lot more in terms of the future aspirations of all of sudan citizens. here in doha is what we're seeing just over the past 4856 hours or so could it be the beginnings of the country sliding back to where it was not just at the beginning of this year when when the protests than initially kicked off but further back than that. i think i'm on i may talk to mystic actually you know because the
9:33 am
sternest between of very aware of the consequences of any kind of confrontation or any kind of you know chaos in their country and i think they're in also you know from the mistakes and from the cases in. you know in yemen and also illegal in all of this kind of cases so that's why they stick to the issue and the stick to the method a means of you know peaceful demonstrations all the way that gets to stick to that you know slogan and stick to that actually behavior and practice on the ground regardless actually and despite the bloody crackdown from the military against them and i think sudan is out of body and i would say i would like to shoot with that actually you know this is the nice people out of body care i mean actually to achieve and to realize their devotion it is a spirit and i feel for them of the craft transformation and for civilian rule you know yesterday also us many messages actually there was a message actually to the military again that they cannot actually you know
9:34 am
pointing in power and the people of sudan they would never surrender after that to the you know bloody crackdown and bloody tactics and also it was a real you know pressure a message or also to the forces of freedom and king they tell them that you will never surrender to live also concede to any kind of position which you know you know is to empower the and embolden the military and their counter revolution also it was very clear and but it could be a message to the you know if you've been an african mediators that actually you know their frame where it's not going to work after yesterday because expeditions are very high and that's traditionally people so that are very high and they would never accept any kind that you know frame we had or any kind of initiative that actually want to strengthen the state the school and the counter-revolution led by him it so the message by very clear as that is people are so chairmen to go ahead with that regardless of the bloody crackdown and if. say that you know it's that he
9:35 am
made and the others are sawyer scared actually to put up the pole did evolution and the poor people of sudan allen do you share that optimism because it occurs to me if you've got a percentage of what you might call the administration at the moment a cornerstone of the administration a percentage of that is made up of what used to be the genuine militia they are notorious how can the country ever truly come if those people ok it's just a clutch of people is to hand for if they're still there doing their thing and wanting to do their thing the direction of travel here as well. i mean without question the head met the problem as i call it in terms of the militia that i met he now controls that used to be the johns weed and is now the rapid support 1st rapid support forces this is now the biggest obstacle to moving forward i mean it's difficult to see how you move forward with him at he given his background given that he's basically seen as a thug is preventable warlord by many even in khartoum but also just the violence
9:36 am
he's already used against civilians and the fact that he really doesn't have a political constituency in khartoum but then again it's difficult to see how you move on without him because he is right now the strongest force on the ground in the streets and there's still no clear pathway towards just getting him but not only him but all the guys who he hasn't anything to simply go away i mean per all these points that you know the mediation efforts you know how are producing a draft agreement that leaves a lot wanting which is of course true i mean i think everyone has to acknowledge that this is you know this is going to be an incredibly messy transition in a best case scenario and we've already mentioned the you know how strong the sunni's people have shown themselves to be but that you know bashir has left this country and really dire straits not only with the economy but also the security services were taking up something like 60 percent of the budget you know he
9:37 am
counterbalance them against each other this is something that will need to unwinding i think it's you know it's unreasonable probably to expect that you know you flip a switch and everything changes and the militias completely demobilize all at once so i think there is a path forward but it's going to be one that likely includes many of the actors for a transitional period and i think that's you know in many ways the just the clear path forward but also really about the only clear path forward anybody in shanghai why is the ruling. council done a deal with a canadian lobbying company they've given them we understand reportedly $6000000.00 u.s. dollars because they want to low be particularly with the trumpet ministration we understand i.e. they want to implicitly legitimize themselves and also get access to diplomatic boom and maybe arms as well that is not signaling we are going to hand over to a civilian administration any time soon. no it certainly isn't and the point i
9:38 am
would make about the transitional military council is own some respects it also represents generational change there's been a lot said about the use of the protestors and the movement of sudan's young people that is to some extent matched by people like committee who is in his forty's young man if you compare the sheers generation in their mid seventy's and early eighty's some of them so this transition of generational rule is also something where a lot of these people have been waiting their turn so to speak to take over and i agree that signing these kind of contracts and contracting these sorts of lobbyists is indicative of that aspiration i'm not sure the actual substance of the agreement is really what matters because of course it's debatable whether any lobbyist could deliver arms and normalization with trumpet ministration and so on it's much more
9:39 am
revealing for me in terms of what it indicates about the mentality and the aspirations of the military council that set of course there is a very clear knowledge amongst the military council that the bashir is even had been engaged in this normalization process for the united states and although it might seem inconceivable now where there are large scale crackdowns and other mass protests going on. where the regime that's in place now is perpetrating this widespread violence there is again in the longer term or the medium term that aspiration to resume some sort of normalization both of the united states and more broadly but as met here in doha when you get a former u.s. congressman james moran i think was his name who made a trip to sudan he left that trip saying he'd had many positive conversations with everyone involved in this this low level rumbling conflict that's now in this
9:40 am
current sort of form has been going on since the beginning of this year he either has had genuinely positive conversations or he doesn't understand what he's dealing with it can't be both. now maybe both and maybe also his advancing his own personal interests but let's not forget that actually he's not like a heavy with care of one congressman or something like that we know the real congressmen actually are the us congress they are doing great job in supporting the the revolution and democratic transformation of the peaceful devotion in the country and i think our people they have their eye for them actually they create their effort you know a great deal but also yes i would like to get back to the issue of him in the militia priest when we discuss you know humidity and discuss actually his militia militia let's not forget actually the security council resolution which actually issued to address you know the issue of the day we let's not forget it was a 5056 and the chapter 7 which demands a government of sudan at that time to disband that it is out of and to bring the
9:41 am
can go with militia to guest is so in a state of appealing them i think we should the international community and the peace loving countries actually they should impose the security council the solutions about the can go it and and i think that right now they have the sudanese people are you know they are changing the equation of power in the ground that actually you know protesting in in in millions actually peacefully you know and that are actually you know confronting and defying the militia and their rule i think the international community should stand with the danish people because sudan is people they would never accept and they will never surrender to committee and his people and also that is another thing also we are out of this i think the international community especially the african and other of the should pressure on the council and humidity back that's in the league and you know that actually has to the abia is supporting committee when the united arab emirates and other countries are really i think the international community should have sustained pressure on him a tobacco so that you know to behave in a way that the heart of the poor to civilians humanity can you know country can't
9:42 am
respond to sustained pressure definitely because understood me i'm going to interrupt you because we're kind of trusting towards the end of our time allan on that idea of the arab countries point number one is it possible to get those arab countries that i'm here in the house talking about to dial back on their involvement and if it is possible with that take some of the temperature of where we are at the moment. without question the key point of leverage that we have a crisis group have identified with the military council involves their outside backers and that's cairo but it's more importantly the. and the saudis and we do think it's incredibly critical that those countries pressure the military council including him. to strike a deal with the with the opposition for a path forward the the the gulf countries claim that what they want in sudan is
9:43 am
stability and if they think they're going to get stability by the military council cracking down and the trying to hold on to power through oppression. we think they'll be sorely mistaken so you know there's been some efforts at trying to to talk to the gulf more closely about this and strongly about this and those efforts need to be increased and they need to continue but i think this is you know this is clearly one of the most important routes moving forward any virgin shanghai to flip around something you were saying at the top of our discussion is there a sense in which the military a still calling all the shots because can i suggest to the protesters have to by definition keep the military invested and to gauge in what may yet become a peace process because if they walk away nothing changes nothing will change. well i think the protesters feel they can pressure the military through nonparticipation
9:44 am
as well and as you know at the moment there aren't direct talks between both sides so it's a bit of brinkmanship on both sides because on the one hand you have the protesters saying you know we these are our demands and we all accept nothing less the military saying well these are infiltrators and that serve vandals and all the nonsensical things that they've said and continuing as they are and i think the difficulty for the protesters is that if you have a counterpart in the military council that is not responsive to. violent civil disobedience then what do you do and the variety of tactics that protesters have employed over the last months have been varied and i'm sure they will continue to be varied but are they putting pressure on the military council or in the sense of feeling we need to do something to stop this happening again ok i'm going to be their last point to ahmed adam here and ahead here in doha. in 30 seconds
9:45 am
no one can question the commitment of the protesters your clear in your own mind that they are still committed but other way in effect back at square one are they back to where they were in january february yes definitely i think now there is a new fear is of this you know protest and i think there are some plans actually especially from the grassroots you know can be peace action all over the country and you can see the content that's across the country that despite the internet you know disconnection or this kind of thing but it's still people have the deadman and they stop for some stuff some sort of harm when i dish and to point you know this protest to the end because they don't want half of lucian and counter to the counter revolution actually to succeed and that but it beyond that and if you can see that he made yesterday and you know and one hand you know after this you know the oceans. because they demanded and they conducted the philippine media does that mean because for a fact to get it done they want to ease dictation and to ease actually the the
9:46 am
protest yesterday but i think up to that out of the 10 meant to go ahead with that evolution definitely gentlemen thank you all for an informative debate we do appreciate your time thank you to our guests they were. well and early verjee thank you to you 2 for your company you can see the show again on the on the websites that's al-jazeera dot com and for further discussion go to our facebook page that's facebook dot com forward slash a.j. inside story you can also talk to us on twitter at age inside story of tweet me else we back at pizza don't be one for me and everyone on the team here in doha thanks for watching i will see you very soon.
