implemented and to move on to disaster started in 2011 but its use later is still going on you'll see metal bag thank you very much indeed for talking to us now 2nd day of talks are to resume between sudan's opposition and the ruling military genter on transferring power to a civilian led government the military's agreed to demands from the opposition to release prisoners and to restore the internet negotiations collapse a month ago after security forces raided a sit in protests killing dozens of demonstrators the u.n. human rights chief michelle said on wednesday that she was again distressed by reports of attacks on hospitals during the raids. any negotiation has to start from the points that we cannot agree on and it is one main point the transitional council it is the point regarding the head of the council because both sides agreed to a civilian majority and it was suggested
5:01 pm
a to serving and it was then adjusted to $5.00 and $5.00 plus one and that would be 6 civilians and 5 military. we also said that there has to be a deadline to these negotiations we suggest 72 hours the sudanese people and we don't have the space to keep dragging these and listening goshi asians there north korea has accused the us of being hell bent on hostility towards it and of being obsessed with sanctions responding to accusations it breached a cap on petroleum imports north korea's mission to the un issued a statement saying the u. knighted states is practically more and more hell bent on hostile acts against the d.v.r. k it's quite ridiculous for the us to continue its pressure campaign considering sanctions and as a panacea for all problems well that's a marked change of tone from these scenes just days ago when donald trump became the 1st sitting u.s.
5:02 pm
president to cross into north korea he met kim jong un at the demilitarized zone between north and south korea and they agreed to resume denuclearization talks robert kelly is a professor of international relations at who send the national university in south korea and he says the latest statement may be the north's way of exerting pressure on the u.s. to make concessions on sanctions before returning to talks. the trumpet ministration has been pretty clear for a while that sanctions are in place until the north koreans actually make some kind of meaningful concession on either nuclear warheads or missiles. i think the north koreans kind of knew this was coming i think what they're hoping to do is sort of turn all the sort of media events the spectacles into some kind of movement on sanctions it's pretty clear the north koreans want sanctions removed they've really been banging the table on this now for a while and they're kind of hoping that you know hey we had his meeting with trump and then you know a day later we're getting this we're getting slapped with new sanctions what's going on and this is their way of telling us that you know that the summit was more
5:03 pm
important than these sanctions i do think the north koreans actually want to negotiate there's a debate out there i think some hawks think this is all the sort of a game by the north koreans i do actually think they're willing to negotiate away some of their program but they're going to try to ask for a lot they want the white house meeting for example that's going to be great for legitimizing the regime and making it look like a real country they want sanctions relief they want aid they're going to ask for a lot and you know trump is kind of in a weak position as the reelection is coming up at the north koreans use that as a lever to get more out of him. a program pro-democracy legislator in hong kong says the police have been rounding up protesters on the orders of beijing this follows monday's trashing of the legislative building after a largely peaceful demonstration. very worrying because it's so obvious by now that hong kong police have started to conduct a massive roundup of the hotel still around the world the fairly obviously also at the border of. making such a statement. yesterday and. the this is very saddening
5:04 pm

5:05 pm

5:24 pm
let's go to that control room so you can see if this brand of our against that has challenge hong kong's rule of law must strongly be condemn the city should not be turned into a haven for violence using violence to hijack a society like hong kong's is the greatest evil of the modern era joshua when you see that when you see that response to the protesting what's your response. how come people believe in rule of law and beijing believe in rupiah law and with the suppression of beijing was hong kong eroded the one country 2 system to be one country one in a half system people in hong kong might be extradited to china the place with fair trial and rule of law is to show that how beijing know it was of people when 2 out of 7000000 people took to the street and government
5:25 pm
a septa request to terminate it to be immediately the leader of hong kong carol i'm say that both we will pass the legislation toss says the suspension but the bill we will not terminate it immediately and a bill will just terminate months later which just ignore the warsaw people in that this contents of hong kong this mix a. constituent stand there watching us the following the story as it unfolds in hong kong if you could kind of poll them what do you think they would say about what happened on monday. well what happened on monday we knew that i mean when you indicate that the amount of violence will be used i mean if you if you could get any coincides in might be not feel violent because there any breaking of beauty. but and then if you look at home call it always seems that amount of volunteers nexus in the end we will do
5:26 pm
a chinese on reemphasized of like the city so we have this. ideology that we should be places like that when we should have a certain amount of people and not to use too much violence against things and we just we need people in whole color always great things peaceful that was passing and things like that but not not like the one that a lot of people were very just all including myself really shocking to see what i mean a break meaning and breaking things and praying writing down be a good beating in the end at the moment i think a lot of people are very frustrated not meeting of our indians in the city like people like i'm very angry with. some of the family members have been ideas they were fighting and some of them of the libyan uprising to their parents and of all
5:27 pm
friends that was dropping out unfriending friends on facebook and dropping out all of that through because they have different ideas and right on this and for us i'm also i'm just i'm looking at you know twitter feeds here because you know i mean when you were posting for al-jazeera news you also documenting some of these on your twitter feed so looking white that back a few days ago hong kong protests right now and you follow the protests from outside of the i just the chief counsel building all the way from inside and then all waiting for things and but next got here when you were outside the building did you feel that there was a sense of pappas with the protests. we got rid of this didn't come out of a vacuum being these big beasts the last years in june 2 of them both of them are growing 1000000 people there's a real sense among the protesters that they haven't achieved their aims through these marches and that july 1st the anniversary of the handover from british colonial rule she china was a climax for them but also a climax for those they were trying to target they couldn't get their way on that
5:28 pm
they had all day someone was going to happen and during the course of that they are going to spend 18 hours it's in the media since the about let's go to the listed building right in the heart of the hong kong there was a growing sense of trepidation anticipation is that day went on it was a hot dry day and the excesses were out there for a long long time before they finally broke into that building what was strange today was for the vast majority of it the police when they were actually saying the protesters had been area it's hard to themselves they broke into the building and they then paused for a couple of hours almost. decide what to do well then going in and it was about an hour after that these paving of the confrontation through again but it was an incredible atmosphere out in the streets one with a new pending sense of i'm stupid is too strong a word but something big was going to happen everybody knew that people have come prepared to say there are no shops there were the hard hats that gas mask leases used to cast the rubble it's the previous protests of the 12 june and the protests
5:29 pm
were expecting to the same or worse this time around so people knew it was going to come to a head and when they finally got these that building i think a lot of the violence you saw and vandalism was about an emotion just spilling over easy young people who just wanted to really make that their voice is heard in hong kong there's a lot of debate about whether they want to. one of the most extraordinary pictures that i've seen if i if i made a shot and then you go head west nile hong kong democrats see now and they showed a picture of the protesters when they were in sight the next of cats what changes. they drank some of the soft drinks and then they put some money in the fridge to pay for them these are not your regular kind of protesters are they they show something a little bit different here even if you're mad about what they did this is how they're behaving inside the chamber it's not over 50 your thoughts. well it's social media or i would be a lot of different photos from different angles with people of those that was
5:30 pm
showing that they're protecting some of. the historical are pieces but in the being within that and then we also see the other post that they were actually got the steroid and you see photos like that was that it was showing that while they have paid for what was in the bridge but and then you also see that with the whole ritual played out that amount of money doesn't really pay well what is that i mean we get this time it's very different from the p.p. is. that what that was happening including occupy central with the a lot of optical lated emotion that they were it's a very good marketing can bring i could say if you if you could get at that skewed a lot of the time if we could listen and information that was going on play it out on facebook what's that word on hologram with but a lot of be the thing that was untrue from both thought on not only talking about from your profile but and also from. from the government thought of life well
5:31 pm
government you know the ball like you pull up making fake photos and fake news and this and that and in fact you're very frustrating i mean it's the next i know you don't like me but you usually are also not protesting this late you sometimes get who we just existing random but it's i mean the only building that was attacked was that what i'm going to do next you know i was in the building right next door it was completely up to the on touch so. it was not going to get on the symbolism of the. demonstrators and i was. i think the whole time from i'm just just excited here just how tight from we can include in the conversation say an important element of this conversation obviously just that head yeah i was the one being shipped by tear gas so i also legislative comes. 2 days ago i was saying that
5:32 pm
none of the violence exist during the action to storm into the beauty of course people might have different understanding on the differing mission of followers but the fact is none of the staff of the largest city have come so and police force have been physically assaulted by a protester and the reason for protesters that already did have been there is because now you might be reactivated again in the legit at the same time i hope people could aware that hong kong people more than 70 percent of them urged the government to terminate it immediately but governments do acknowledge their worst and the legislative council of hong kong now for all of the lawmaker practically lacked i say let me share this with you nixie and joshua this is from donkey kong on twitter and she says opinions among pro-democracy people might be divided and you can hear that between our 2 guests here as some insist on peaceful actions but many including myself never blame the protesters but i understand that
5:33 pm
in despair and suicidal after all the peaceful ways were attempts joshua this is not hyperbole here they are happening protesting this who have taken their own lives can you tell us what is really on the line why would they go so far. to expected everyone around the world could agree on all of the behaviors of protester especially during the storming action to the legislative council building but why is free activists suicide because they are hot and depressed and cannot see the future of hong kong i hope you can understand that for a team percent of the population of hong kong.
