1:50 am
this is become a weekend ritual in parts of street battles breaking out between anti-government protesters and police. but this was one of the most intense rounds of violence since the protests began almost 3 months ago. the day had started peacefully the police rejected an application from. organizes to hold a rally additionally it was just small religious and student groups that defied the ban we need to pray for home sold off and some of them are 1st on the they also have the same idea but the numbers grew throughout the day as people paralyzed some of the city's busiest roads turning them into walkways i by doing so they risked a rest but there was safety in numbers they shouted if the 1000000 cries of stand with hong kong and left them mock as they went but it was inevitable that this day would develop like so many others have in hong kong recently the violence started
1:51 am
when some people stopped at the offices of the government which adjoins hong kong's parliament this is a building that they stormed back on the 1st of july so clearly once they came to this building the police were in no mood to muck around no mood to allow them to stay here and throw things at the building so that started fairly quickly. the protesters have developed a relatively new and dangerous tactic of throwing petrol bombs along with bricks and other objects on the other side police fired tear gas and deployed water cannons this time laced with dye to try to mock those who had broken the law eventually those demonstrating moved on but the fight wasn't over. the protesters have retreated from the area around the legislative council conflicts but not very far coming to a place close to the headquarters of the hong kong police of bollocks this road this intersection here and sit fire to their barricade taking things to a new level directions were designed to send
1:52 am
a clear message to the police and the government far from being afraid they are intensifying they campaign and in doing so the city's crisis is worsening wane hey al jazeera hong kong. in sudan a judge has formally ties deposed president bashir with corruption and foreign funds but she told the court he received $25000000.00 from. saudi crown prince muhammad bin solomon but he had to use the money for private purposes or shares lawyer says his client denies all charges against him sudan has embarked on a transition to civilian rule following a power sharing deal between protest leaders of the generals who stood for sugar coated over so that was one of them because we did not supply the money to the bank of sudan because we meant to hide the source and we did so because this was the desire of the prince and i had hoped that this would have been a secret court in order not to show the name of the prince he did not want his name to appear anywhere which is why he sent the money on a private plane with
1:53 am
a private on avoid this was his wish for it not to be known well let's look at how i was sure got to this point demonstrations began in december against the rising cost of living for turning into a why did movement calling for an end to bashir 30 years in office he's been under house arrest since april the military gentles said bashir was being investigated for money laundering to more than $130000000.00 was found at his home that has been formally charged with corruption and the possession of illicit foreign currency if i'm guilty he could spend up to 10 years in prison if a morgan has more now from khartoum. today's parts hearing was the 3rd court hearing for sudan's former president on monday bashir and it was the 1st time where he gave his statements to the judge and to the court where he said that he did indeed receive $25000000.00 from saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin salim on he said that his office manager got a call from saudi arabia's crown prince of office manager and said that there was a special gift coming on board a special played now he said that when the money landed in sudan he did not want to
1:54 am
turn it down because he was worried that he would upset and nation which is according to his words special relations with sudan at the time so we accepted the gift but did not use it in a personal capacity now his lawyers are arguing that he should be set free on bail until the next hearing and until he's formally until he's formally convicted but the judge today turned down that. that appeal and said that if convicted of the charges of illegal opposition of foreign currency and illegal creating a foreign currency then the former president faces up to 10 years in jail so he will not be allowed bail he also to be formally indicted the former president who says that he is not guilty he said that most of the money he used was for personal interests to try to get the country out of the crisis that that he was in during the time which was a shortage of flour and shortage of fuel and he said that none of the money went to his personal account and that if investigations continue that is what is going to be revealed so for the moment it looks like we're going to have to wait for the rest of the testimonies from witnesses from the defense aside from the from the
1:55 am
president's side after already hearing from from witnesses from the state prosecutor side and it's going to be a few weeks before we have a final verdict on whether the former president is going to face 10 years in jail or whether he is innocent 60 tons of humanitarian aid has been sent from qatar to sudan to help the victims of the recent floods more than 60 people have been killed and thousands forced to abandon their whole hoard stuff from cars to. the military cargo bay behind these oh and by the time i mean something has just landed on the ball to come to it is the 1st shipment to live here from qatar to help the victims of the flooding to this country over the last several days hundreds of dollars hundreds of people have been left but by these bombings about $200.00 either killed or wounded. about 60000 homes be destroyed this shipment new routes 4 tons of medical supplies 15 tons of blankets and jeanne tons of food

1:57 am
be this training center for this al qaeda connected group and it's an indication really of the concern not just that turkey hasn't of the russians have but also that the americans have that in this last rebel held part of syria the northwestern part of syria there are these hard core groups resisting conducting a last stand the reuters news agency says a suicide bomber has attacked police and condones one of afghanistan's biggest cities earlier the taliban launched a new offensive there afghan army reinforcements rushed to prevent find test taking control the government says at least 30 taliban were killed 3 civilians are reported dead well a spokesman for afghanistan's president ashraf ghani says the attack shows the taliban doesn't want peace. the taliban's attack on couldn't lose contradicts what it's saying in doha the attack shows that the taliban still isn't ready for peace they continue to fight but well into his art is the director of the center for
1:58 am
peace and development studies and a former advisor to the afghan high peace council he says the taliban is trying to show strength in the hope it can get more of peace negotiations. folly one would like to give 2 important signals to the united state. analysis shows the cut the negotiation for the time biggest are going very well for example the taliban usual would like to cancel the strategic partnership between afghanistan and the united states maybe the united states includes are the boy who will accept that but with maybe with different conditions which is not happening for the time being sickened in the south of afghanistan i think there's some terrorism or very number of. soldier are just raising their heads. would like to give a signal to the united states and also to other international community that they have to be crippling other the region that's raising from day to day also
1:59 am
internally the the taliban leadership would like to emphasize on the. boy that they have to be getting a bigger share in the in the negotiation with the with government side in india nearly 2000000 people have been excluded from a citizen's register and sam could be less state less as a result the have to prove they're not foreigners or face detention the national register citizens was created to determine who came to the state for neighboring bangladesh declared independence from pakistan as some state is now on high alert of extra security forces being deployed priyanka gupta reports from go half least in some state. more than 1900000 people have been left out of a sam's updated finally rich history of citizens that means they will now have to appeal to foreigners tribunals with evidence to prove that they are indian the decision on citizenship will be decided by foreigners tribunals the of course have
