3:56 am
by the security problems with the situation still very dire along the way on our journey we so many many villages that had been hit and even the villages where some people walked you could just sense and feel the fear and the tension and then some of the people actually preparing to leave those villages so it's. even more dangerous as you go by the north into the sahara region not access at all and onto the border with mali. it's one of the most dangerous routes in. this road head to the buddha with mine. we're told armed groups easily cross a porous border into. and carry out attacks on villages and government troops. this minibus was destroyed by a roadside bomb. is one of the larger villages some people are
3:57 am
only just returning home after fleeing when a neighboring village was attacked. but. says she would stay for long. my husband is in but we fled after the attack in the next village i've just come back to get the rest of our things. the father north the more dangerous it is. the gunshots you're hearing from our police escort is a warning to any armed people who could be in hiding. what's happening in the country is part of a regional conflict that began when colonel gadhafi was ousted in libya. armed groups crossed the sahara desert and started an insurgency in northern mali and then spread across the sahara region until 2 years ago but was largely safe now hundreds of people have been killed and many more displaced this is one of many
3:58 am
villages we've seen along the way in this homestead for example it appears people left in quite a hearty this food there it seems that they were preparing to eat these pots and pans everywhere and they also left the animals and animals are very important to the people who live in this area and some of those we talked to elsewhere saying that they fled after hearing that other villages had been attacked. this men brought their families to safety after their villages ambushed and several people killed they believe the fighters have inflamed tensions between rival hardass and farming communities. beginning with 40 towards the continuation. conflict that has existed for a long time but now we believe that people here say and less security forces succeed in stopping the balance they want to return home catherine. nathen book

4:06 am
local elections despite the opposition being barred from running and reports of ballot stuffing president putin's united russia lost a 3rd of its seats in the city's assembly despite its candidates technically running as independents putin's approval ratings have also dropped off an unpopular hike in the pension age falling incomes and a crackdown on the opposition his party also lost a number of seats in the far east but it's candidates did win in other areas where both the chairman of the united russia party and the opposition leader were keen to put a positive spin on the results from moscow and around the country. can get up of couple of us for the candidates the past the preliminary party vote and were supported by the united russia party there were 26 of them 19 won the election this is a good result for the party no doubt that it could have been better but as they say we have what we have so on the whole the result of the election in the country is more than positive it exceeded our most optimistic for cos we are entering the
4:07 am
final cycle of preparations for the state duma election in 2021 cell. in general we can say that the technical vote worked for the 1st time the work much better than we had expected so this was an experiment and in those cities in regions where it was implemented for the 1st time it worked very well. well that i just seen as a test for national elections in 2 years time has more from moscow. well everyone here in moscow still trying to make sense of what exactly has happened in these very well watched elections it's an interesting and complicated political scheme that has played out but indeed the russia united russia party the ruling party has never lost as many seats of before ever. they lost a monopoly basically they have still the majority in this moscow city duma. still
4:08 am
can basically have their influence heard but they have to deal with a lot of forces at the moment not the actual real in the plan of the opposition because they were simply banned from running in the 1st place by the communist party has grown here significantly the governors have never been allowed to serious opposition very large opposing the ruling party but it will mean that is more diversity in this in this moscow city duma but what it means even more is that this is the signal that this fight this crackdown by the government on the opposition many people have been arrested they have been in jail for a long sentences they have been beaten up but still that they have made this voice heard through this so-called smart vote which was called for by his opposition a bigger alexy now fairly and this has basically been successful looking at those all here in moscow this means that the opposition is a force to be reckoned with and that's some people have described some cracks are

now appearing in put him through. almost every state in the u.s. is launching an investigation into potentially anti competitive practices at tech companies the anti trust inquiry will focus in particular on google which is face complaints over how it runs the advertising side of its business the company has also been accused of leading consumers to its own products the cost of competitors through its search engine google says it will call cooperate fully with all investigations. well u.s. laws are affected be a collection of business regulations that promote competition for the benefit of consumer has facebook google apple and amazon are already being investigated to potential violations of antitrust law at a national level activities under scrutiny whether the tech giants use their outsized market power to crush or require rivals privacy campaign is also believed that mass acquisition of consumer data is producing quality of consumers choices
4:10 am
and increasing the price of opportunity saying u.s. investigations joint inquiry spy the european union that could eventually lead to the breakup of the tech giants and al-jazeera particle hain is outside the supreme court in washington for right now and what exactly are they going to be investigating. well they said initially they're going to be looking at advertising as you mentioned google really is the dominant player when it comes to advertising online in the united states something about 31 percent of all digital ads are on google but they made clear in talking to reporters that they're going to look at basically all of google's business practices now monopolies can be broken up in this country but it is rarely done it was done with the phone companies decades ago they tried to do it microsoft ended up having to settle that case still it does feel as if the mood has shifted here and now we're seeing the tourney generals take this stuff republicans democrats say they're going after google so potentially how
4:11 am
bad is this google. well you know google has been investigated in the country in the u.s. in the past and really nobody has really gone after them but the again the mood seems to have shifted it's not just the attorney generals that came here to the supreme court the federal justice department says it's looking at big tech and across the street at the capitol so are members of congress so there definitely seems to be a growing appetite not just with politicians or with lawyers but with the american public to see these big tech companies held. carnival or particle a line there live there in washington d.c. thank you. u.s. president donald trump says that as far as he's concerned the afghanistan peace talks are debts and it was his decision to end with taliban leaders on fischer joins us live now from washington with the latest on what's allan tell us more about what the president has been saying. well there's been a long and tortured process of peace talks between the united states and the
4:12 am
taliban one round of talks in the capital of door it seemed that there was a provisional agreement in place and then on thursday there was a suicide bomb attack in kabul which killed an a to a soldier a u.s. soldier and 10 others as far as donald trump is concerned that was the final straw he had apparently made a secret invite to the afghan president and taliban leaders to travel to camp david this week the week of the 911 commemorations where he could perhaps finalize the deal but after the suicide attack he decided that this simply wasn't going to happen now he's been under pressure from john bolton his national security adviser and a number of conservative commentators who have said just in the last few weeks that negotiating with the taliban to quote one that is what defeat looks like so donald trump clearly deciding that he doesn't want to press ahead with these peace talks that are on hold for the moment the thing to remember is that he said something similar in the past when he was negotiating with north korea he walked away at one
4:13 am
point and said this is done nothing is going to happen and then he went to the demilitarized zone and met again with north korea's leaders so while he's saying they're done there over there is always the possibility they could be resurrected quite simply because donald trump has said he would like to see a peace deal and afghanistan to take into the 2020 election one other thing he said as he was about to leave for a trip to north carolina is that if the americans pull out then all that will happen is that al qaeda and other forces will regroup there's been talk of a drawdown of american forces anyway from what the president has said and obviously will look for more detail it would seem to suggest that that no isn't going to happen in washington thank you. a powerful typhoon has killed one person and disrupted rush hour travel in tokyo a strong wind swept through japan's capital typhoon farside was one of the strongest to hit tokyo in recent years more than 900000 homes lost power and over

is coming next but what. am i next that is a chilling question thousands of women and girls in south africa are asking as a relentless series of killings continue to shock the country i'm femi oke. in the 1st of 2 special shows on south africa we ask how can gender based violence be eradicated join today's conversation through twitter and our youtube live chat.
4:22 am
south africa's president says that violence against women and girls is a crime against our common humanity made a wave of killings that has provoked revulsion and anger university student natasha khan a beer died earlier today a day after she was dropped off at her home in an unconscious she had been missing for 3 weeks in another recent case student or your name ne mo when china was found dead inside a post office in cape town and the rape and king a 14 year old johnny come malo in cape town has also horrified the nation because more and more people are sharing online many. blame no more without us share our burden just some of the hashtags we've been keeping an eye on over the past week but much of what we've seen on women asking am i that it's what we asked former stream guest and artist america conrad who's been tweeting from cape town to
4:23 am
explain take a look in the wake of all of the atrocious rapes and murders following women's month and during women's month we don't know if we are going to be next we don't know if we're going to be the next headline for the newspapers we don't know if we're going to be some random man's next victim or even the victim of someone that we know personally we don't know if we're going to be found in a ditch somewhere or if we're going to die as collateral to my says that our hands up and our legs open and we don't want to be we all want to live our lives freely and with or without fear but we are afraid we don't want to be afraid anymore and we shouldn't be chilling words were in this photo when these tellings harris asserts i am not next she tells us that women in south africa are either victims or they know someone who is and that these hashtags are a cry for help and a call for the government to do something the call for change is something we're
4:24 am
also seeing on the streets jason coomber took these photos at an anti-violence protest outside parliament in cape town late last week and more protests are coming this week with activists saying silence is no longer an option in the fight against gender based violence i mean. so we're joined now from johannesburg via lander t.n.t. she is co executive director at archive. the organization aims to tackle gender based violence when the 2nd you lay is director at rise up against gender based violence she is also in johannesburg and completing a line up from johannesburg let's talk. mako winey he is a social justice and gender activist hello everybody i wish it was under better circumstances that we got so many amazing young south africans here to talk about a huge issue in south africa yolanda and this is for all of your landing you can start here what is it about south africa that makes it so dangerous for women
4:25 am
what's going on. hi thank you for having me on the show and i like to greet everyone that's watching and chiming in i think what is it that makes africa so violent or rather why is gender based violence the sixty's so rife i think it would be doing an injustice true kind of not look at all be other socio economic and political factors and and appear in i guess the legacy of we are as we come from a movie i as a country and this is walking about looking at 8 looking at the suppose of democracy that we live in looking at i was state governance and this and the political structures and if they are if they have enough or not and have been held accountable if you look at the trauma that we as the people. who are the majority
4:26 am
living in this country we are we with them terms of dealing with the trauma that we had to carry since they have from colonize asia and you know to we are right now in 2019 how we received adequate resources and exit. true to every news of healing and recovery and just getting justice i do not think so so gender based violence is just one of those symptoms. but i think you know there's a bigger issue apart from jane which is we are a broken society we are a society of poverty instead of as. i guess our economy growing and all of those other factors we've seen a decline in that and we've seen a rise in public to see the rise in more broken homes in angry people people living on empty stomachs we've seen angry men not getting help and the intake taking that island i'm hearing honest men it is complex and detailed and you could continue for
4:27 am
another 30 minutes and still not be finished does that make young rape. yes it actually does all of those factors do reap all of those factors to make women great and women abusive and make men abusive and i think i'm not trying to make the conversation solely about men i'm trying to make it about the fact that we are broken i am broken as a society and before it does make us violent and it also makes a person bhangra bulled tool this violence the other person being black and i guess also if you look at it racially that's also another conversation to be had but yes it makes everyone of as capable of so many layers there you know and i want to i want to bring the senate and i'm glad your agreement because i give this to you. speaking of all the layers it is what's brought people out onto the streets so this is vicki on twitter who says posters with messages like these are being held up in
4:28 am
anguish and sorrow against femicide we don't feel safe anymore as young and old women in our country and it seems like there is no justice willing to be served towards femicide takers partakers another person wright said in a personal story of sorts. being vigilant and staying alert of your surroundings is honestly not even a choice anymore i am always so paranoid and aware then this i just want to break this down a little bit for international audience is there a story from among the many tragic ones that we've seen in recent weeks that stands out to you that would explain this i would allusive date what this fear is like for so many young women. well unanimous definitely one of our young people who live literally we left campus as a student to go to the post office to deliver a package to go and have a package sent and what happened was is that the person who works at the post office said that she couldn't send the package at that particular point in time and
4:29 am
needed to return a few hours later when she returned to send the package he raped and killed her at the post office. just afternoon around about half past 2 in the afternoon so in broad daylight just put going to deliver a package she was killed which means we are safe no way the paranoia is actually real if you can just go to deliver a package and get yourself killed that means anything can happen to you on the street i mean women have been abducted in texas and look for daily attacks is a form of public transport and they've been raped in broad daylight 2 women have been raped in bathroom facilities at schools in tertiary institutions older men have been raped in the whole a woman next to the homes actually entered into so this is the space that state where there is broad daylight whether it's at night no matter what you're wearing 3 month old babies are being raped older men of being raped teenagers upping rate
4:30 am
woman in their mid thirty's upping the rate so there isn't a safe person this isn't a safe space young man not being raped we don't be the rape capital of the world there's no way you can tell when you don't actually see a repeat taking place or someone who's either a survivor or perpetrator that's that's where we're at if you if it hasn't happened to someone as close us and that done it. as experienced that's it that's the whole no lawyer in keeping i have respect for quite ham but you are arguably the most important person in this conversation because it is mostly men in these situations who law attacking a women knowing that what is that like this that film might get a weight of responsibility on your shoulders how do south african men go it is a huge general question but for you as a south african man how do you navigate. this. extreme situation where women are not safe wherever they are whatever and they happen to fall. it's really
4:31 am
challenging i think i think it's really challenging because the conversation that's happening in south africa right now is that men are not taking responsibility and saying you know we are making south africa unsafe for women the conversation that men are having in this country is you know some of them are saying hash tag not all of us but we know that we are complicit in the system we know that we are complicit in a system that promotes rape culture that ensures that we are complicit in in a system that allows gender based violence to continue we are the people that continuing to rape men to rape men to rape women in this country so i think that our responsibility in this country is for us to take responsibility to 1st acknowledge that we are the people that make women and safe in this country we are the people that make feminized bodies unsafe in this country we are the people that make way people unsafe in this country from there on we can start working on our how we're able to unload toxic masculinity because
4:32 am
a lot of the time it's about power we do a lot of these things to assert a form of power as you only said earlier it's because of a system of colonization and a system of do you mean a zation that black men in this country have they boot against black women in order to take some form of power back from them and so it makes it and save for women in the whole you find that your uncle may be the one who is going to rape your father may be the one that's going to rape you but i think also the conversation that we should be having is that we should allow women to have their own humanity it seems in this country another thing that we do we tend to say but imagine if it was your sister why are we still centering in this conversation why are we still centering men why can we not respect women for being women why are we supposed to this is an island by bringing them closer yeah and bringing them closer to us and saying oh if it was just if it was your mother no it's just the person you know i think that the issue in this country is we rape and we should just stop. raping and stop killing
4:33 am
women and stop beating up women like it's not the system is not working is the is is not working this is them is messed up but we are the 1st point of call we are the ones who have saying like we are the ones who are well let's take responsibility for our thoughts. so beautifully said there and i saw the women nodding along as you were talking i want to bring this up is a fantastic thread here and we'll tweet it out because i can't read them all but i'm going to share true from that i had seen on twitter who says men should be more involved we are treating this situation like gender based violence is the actual root of the problem and it isn't this starts with how these boys are raised with problematic mindsets that teach them that a woman's job is to attend to the needs of men but such i have to goes on to say it's not just the men that are poisoned from young because women too are brainwashed into thinking that our place in society is to live up to the expectations of a good wife and that's in quotes who does nothing less than abide by her husband's
4:34 am
rules even sexually ulundi talk to us about this perspective that it comes from a young age and it comes from socialization. i mean it really is. because our behavior is learned behavior right now and just wakes up and once a go assault somebody without having been taught that or haven't been exposed to that or you know just you don't just wake up and want to rape somebody and this is some sort of conditioning behind they're also chalets they said it was told to told you that it was normal so yes it is definitely correct and again as a little one a law is saying that you know if we can talk about the system all of these things. at the end of the day it lives with as adults who have the responsibility of raising these young. and but also in the responsibility lies with who are broken and realize that as adults or young adults so for me it's like
4:35 am
dealing with this think poll at both levels or at the same time that some of the right look at what we can do to prevent it from happening and also responding to this massive violence right now and it's it's like on the. poor english it's under both ends of the sections the same thing right so i'm sure a country stations about this didn't raise young men but then we can surely expect a broken man right now i'm in a relationship with the 26 year old man and he has suffered. things that i could not even imagine when he when he opened them to news i owe you know and i and i imagine having or thinking about procreating with this individual whom i deeply care about but i understand that right now he doesn't have to every news to get to the heart that he needs psychologically the hope that he needs financially to get that psychological up. because my so you're letting your light actually just take a take it's also critical leg of course women because there's so much to talk about
4:36 am
you said a political level i want to bring in your. president right now so rahm opposer who was talking about gender based violence has been talking about this for for some time now as has the south african government yes this is not a new thing this is not just because people are marching right now this is the latest that he's been talking about us is the problem let me let me have this that let me give him his 35 seconds so people can hear how he's framing the issue and then when they say you pick up of the back of it this is still around the pows oppressed in south africa ok violence against women is not a women's problem it is not a problem of what a woman said or did what a woman was wearing or where she was walking violence against women is a man's problem it is men who are rape and kill women there
4:37 am
is therefore an obligation on the men of our country to act to and such behavior and such crimes when this i was looking at the president's twitter feed and he was naming whole communities we need your help we need to come up with a solution businesses and organizations and institutions we need your help your reaction to that. a passion you have for you with him then and i'm hands on tick out differently need men to take some kind of responsibility because they're not we different business to stop acting like they are not part of south african society and actually take some responsibility for the scourge especially those that are that that make profit from drivers from to debase violence such as the alcohol industry so clearly the one that my issue that i have with the speech that he made that is how it's the same thing that i heard before he made the same speech just jam at the chain the summit he made the same speech on
4:38 am
the c o n open the sexual offenses court and he signed the declaration of the gender summit so there are only one of 2 things that he said that when you he said is going to ask for parliaments to change legislation so that we have access to the sexual offenders registry you forgot to mention the fact that it hasn't been updated properly and that it doesn't have correct information and that this perpetrators that are on it but let's not talk about those issues the fact is why has it taken so long for us to have access to the fact that a sexual offender was working for a south african post office for government with the criminal record and was and managed to go under the radar clearly means that it's not raking even for those that do have access to it so the thing that he comes complains about all the time is the fact that he doesn't have resources to allocate to gender based violence in the number one rape capital of the world doesn't make sense i think what we need to do is now take the fight to capital and say well 90 percent of the south every economy is out in few hands so if there's
4:39 am
a scourge of gender based violence in the country over 50 percent of the population is affected as a budget actually start paying a role and actually help us fund the fight that's what i think we need to focus on you're not the only one i want to play beth from a member of parliament that is not as the sheriff a member of the democratic alliance party and johannesburg and here's what she told us i think that. there is no easy steps to tech legion to face him aside but really as a need to do is look. a look at the institutions that are meant to protect women and children from gender based violence infanticide and once you do that you will realize that tie is too should no system all the way to parliament is in effect of dealing with issues on the ground and i think once we look at how be constricted. sure that this translates onto the ground nothing will change if we want to see
4:40 am
change we have to be different. no no i'll give this one to you she talks about it being institutional as a structural issue but then take a look at this tweet from someone on twitter says my older driver said something relevant today we're looking in the wrong place for change asking people from the government who live in a lot of homes to solve crime in the streets we live in whereas we should start in the community and face the perpetrator so this idea of the government to do something and other people saying what can the government do it should start in individual homes. it's quite challenging because i think we live in a country where you know we voted for a particular government and when we think about the elections that happened last year a lot of the big political parties including the a.n.c. were telling us that they're going to ensure that there's an end to gender based violence so a lot of us put our faith in certain political parties because of their different manifest as in telling us what they're going to do and government funds
4:41 am
a lot of structures that are in place so when we think about the criminal justice system we think about if a woman is raped the 1st people that they're going to encounter is a police station or they're going to come to the hospital so those are the institutional structures that are in place that we need to do with that when we go to a particular hospital in some instances there isn't a rape kit in order to try to ensure that there's d.n.a. that can be taken when you go to the police office they don't treat you with the necessary dignity and respect that they should treat victims and also there's no room for you to be treated there's no information about in nearby counseling centers so yes well on the one hand we want to talk about individual perpetrators and our community is taking responsibility we already knew that i'm going to take some of yes we also know we also know that this state is the one that is perpetuating all of this crime the fact that we can't access the criminal justice system as people who have been violated in this country means we are not sable true
4:42 am
so it's a little bit of a let me put this to you because you have a you've outlined the issues so clearly we've not done much in terms of how do you get by us where are we right now how do you get to a situation where there is almost 0 g.p.a. there should be nothing should be none whatsoever let me show you something here my laptop these are the youngsters a cell phone primary school there from east london on the surge of september they had marsat assembly so these are the boys are 7 to about 11 years old so the headmaster told them on september the 3rd this have a less. what is easy for us is always to oscar goes to the movies. how do you. do it with a. z. . and i believe that.
4:43 am
we need me easy to feel me in this country i mean how does a. woman with the. life of an all you set that men she just stop writing that is to me seems like it's very naive it's very obvious but naive because that obviously needs to be some help with the helps thought at telling youngsters and educating young boys about how they behave around women is is that the way for it. we speak very often about the lack of sexual comprehensive education in south african's basic education system i think one of the major problems since that we don't have a comprehensive sexual education so we don't teach children what gender and sex as we don't teach children what consent is and consent in the broader sense right so when you encounter people you just don't go and hide them you just don't take from them you ask them if you can help them if there are certain things so yes education
4:44 am
is a very important role in ensuring that we teach men how trying to learn but the problem is we'd have to overhaul the whole society because we can teach children in a particular place how to behave but if they're going back to when they aren't in the kind that is of society yes i better know who we let it be yeah we need to like teach overhaul the whole thing and all this is such a giant that i jump. around so the whole country has to go back to school basically that's what you're saying you know what we need is a truck of really serious social behavioral change programs so we actually did this hiv aids hiv aids response in the country we've got to point to educating adults children ringback everyone what is a condom what is an eye what is hiv aids what are the privilege that's what are you treated once you have we did that and with hiv aids response so we know how to do social behavioral change programs we've done it we just need to do it for gender
4:45 am
based right it's that simple it's age appropriate for people who are young age appropriate for the old speaks in different languages because we've got 11 official languages in our country and it actually speaks to go through well and people government knows this there were about it they don't even know how much it's going to cost to do it they have an advocate took the money to make it but our issue is the fact that the ice is not under and this is why we're marching to corporate south africa on friday at 3 am in the morning. and telling them that we actually want to shut down since i'm still the house on the fight against and. that is the plan for action thank you so much for sharing thank you to all of you for today's conversation on tomorrow we'll return to south africa to look at what's behind a wave of xena phobic attacks j.j. bola on twitter says you know phobia and gender based violence in south africa are 2 sides of the same coin they're connected part of the hierarchical structure that when black men can't punch up words at their oppressors they punch down at those
4:46 am

thursday october 31st. to know how it's been following events for us at the houses of parliament in london . a 4th defeat for boris johnson's government in a big vote in the last week and a day that parliament has been sitting since the summer recess in this particular case it was the result of another back bench and the motion courtesy of john bercow the speaker has just announced his resignation allowing this motion calling on the government to deliver to parliament the entire report an internal government report on operation yellow hammer that was commissioned by the government to look at the consequences of a no deal breaks it leaked to the media portions of it in the last few weeks indicating that no deal might be quite a bit more serious than the government had been letting on and the 2nd part of the

later after m.p.'s vote on whether to hold early election promise to boris johnson is under pressure to strike a deal at the next e.u. leaders summit but it appears he's planning to send his foreign secretary instead in a moment we'll go live to join a who's outside parliament but 1st under simmons reports on the day's events. without us to go before parliament is suspended another defeat for the government with an order to reveal all private messages between advisors about that decision along with assessments of the damage and no deal brecht's it will cause then the leader of the opposition on his feet opening a debate about whether boris johnson will abide by the new law making him aas the e.u. to extend the brics a deadline unless there's a deal we are not at war the prime minister seems obsessed with this hyperbole and aggressive language surrender bill or doing the job i call been went on to call for healing widening divisions in the u.k.
5:51 am
and these were only the side shows on a grey monday in westminster with more in store the expect a defeat of a 2nd attempt from the prime minister to call the election due to be followed by the suspension of parliament for 5 weeks earlier johnson had been in dublin trying to talk up the prospects of a brics a deal but there was a flat response from his irish counterpart. who said it will be a hook and asked to get a deal screwed at this stage the focus here is on the back story the insurance policy to avoid a hard u.k. e.u. border between northern ireland and arm and johnson has suggestions on alternatives but there are no prospects of an agreement right now. i want to get a deal. like you i've looked carefully at no deal i've assessed it's consequence is both for our country and and yours and yes of
5:52 am
course we could do it u.k. could certainly get through it but be in no doubt that outcome would be a failure of state craft for which we would all be responsible for the backstop continues to be a critical component of the withdrawal agreements unless and until alternatives are found but we are open to alternatives but they must be realistic ones legally binding and workable and we haven't received such a post as to date with the suspension of parliament do late on monday night the opposition here has done all it can in the time available to prevent a no deal breaks it there's no doubt an election is coming but short of breaking them or actually getting a deal johnson doesn't look like going to the polls in the time frame he wants andrew simmons how jazeera westminster. it's going to turn to how his hands on places where where do these measures parliamentary moves any.
5:53 am
pretty stark really but part of it is going to be perogue later that means there'll be no activity behind me here for 5 weeks until pretty much the eve of that summit on october the 17th which will be his opportunity if he's going to get one or 2 all to go and try and get a deal it does rather look as though he's not going to get the election that he had wanted although he'll have a 2nd try a little later this evening but opposition parties have said they simply won't. vote for it until they're sure that no deal is off the table on the 31st let me bring in my guest alan wager he's with the think tank you can a changing europe thanks for joining us alan if that vote fails tonight the 2nd attempt by the government in a week to get that 2 thirds majority do you think at that point they will be scratching their heads in downing street desperately trying to come up with another way of getting the election they want all their terms or will they simply accept that this is in the hands of the opposition they now won't have time to have that
5:54 am
election of all the 30000 table because they have parliament so this has been so they used against the government to try and block them into having an election after the 30 person will tell you by so given the give the limited choices choices facing my board zones and one of the big decisions will be does he then decide to resign or whatever or does he go into that election having been the prime minister that goes to the european council with that extension desperate not to of course he said there's no way he'll be doing that over his dead body yes so the big choices facing bars films and then will be does he resign as prime minister and let someone else go to brussels and he says he doesn't to do that under any circumstances or does he go to it. and make it clear that he was coerced in doing so both of those things have real electoral cost potentially real political difficulties by those decisions. either way that a bit of a bind to either way potentially could be losing votes let's talk about this
5:55 am
controversial decision to prorogue parliament tonight send him away into a sort of forced recess for 5 weeks initially thought of as a possible gambit to bounce the u.k. out into a no deal breaks it now he's been slightly snoo could with this new law the courts have said it's legal what was the point of that motion earlier that forces the government now to reveal all these communications behind the decision well just as boris johnson is looking straight at an election and try to work out how to manage this extension his opponents in parliament those x. conservative members of the house of commons on the labor party are also looking to an election and their main attack line is boris johnson does not respect for the house of commons and for parliament and for the constitution and to overturn all precedents and can't be trusted and those are the biggest lines for the labor party and for the now independent conservatives and what they were doing today was to try and show that during the course of parliament boris busy johnson lied that would mean they necessarily wasn't allowed to do that was not allowed to bring parliament
5:56 am
but they were going to die trying to show in the long that there was different things going on behind that probation the necessary to do with what he was saying it was all about and that's again part of the electoral attack lines of the election that is almost certain to come in november now so much of this is about electioneering is going to at the moment they're going to go away they'll come back on the 14th of october with the queen's speech or not you know quite quite sure and then the e.u. summit and then october 31st give us a sense of what might unfold in that crucial fortnight at the end of october yeah that big 1st immediate choice for boris johnson will be in that 1st week. in 14 of october does he resign as prime minister or does he goes that council every resigns then we have a frenetic period where either jeremy corbyn or someone else in the house of commons tries to for majority to be the prime minister on thursday. way to go that counts a summit if no one else can form a majority and boris johnson refuses then it will be brought jeremy corbyn they go
5:57 am
so that counts seems you know quite quite close it is going to be a big big big change in our politics of jericho and becomes prime minister in theory before the summit that would be a political tactic ahead of an election of course he'd be a caretaker prime minister wouldn't it yeah what about the summit what are the chances of a deal johnson says he wants one and thinks he can get one what's the making of all of this what are the chances they'll offer a deal the chances of a deal that can get through the house of commons is still pretty slim the chance of a deal that can fit with what boris johnson's red lines are are slimmer still there's the vague outline of a deal that would mean changing the terms of the backstop but it still looks pretty difficult that it got that would get the agreement of boris johnson to be a really difficult sell it would be a massive pivot in terms of his positions up to now on bricks and the as you say we're looking towards an election in the electoral costs of ourselves of doing that given knowledge of raj and his tail is really difficult to see him doing that.
5:58 am
thanks so much for your thoughts in a little while a couple of hours we will see whether the government succeeds or not in getting the election they want and then pretty swiftly thereafter problem and will be wrote for the next 5 weeks john howard thank you very much indeed. now 2 separate attacks on convoys invoking a facet of killed 29 people and it's highlighted a growing security problem for the west african nation some of the violence is split along religious lines with a string of attacks on catholic churches in may they blame the violence on groups who cross the border from northern mali and pressure is growing on the government catherine sawyer has more from cairo in northern. the government has issued a statement confirming this incident and that that's along the road ahead into the border with mali and one of the attacks happened in an area where we were filming just a few days ago and it's quite surreal because the landmine was planted in the example

6:01 am
groups crossed the sahara desert and started an insurgency in northern mali and then spread across the sahara region until 2 years ago back in a fossil was largely safe now hundreds of people have been killed and many more displaced this is one of many villages we've seen along the way in this homestead for example it appears people left in quite a hearty this food there it seems that they were preparing to eat these pots and pans everywhere and they also left the animals and animals are very important to the people who live in this area some of those we talked to elsewhere saying that they fled after hearing that other villages had been attacked. this man brought their families to safety after their villages ambushed and several people killed they believe the fighters have inflamed tensions between rival hardass and farming

6:04 am
well. government says that as many as 3500 evacuees have arrived in nassau most of the displaced are from the islands of abaco and grand bahama the areas worst affected by hurricane dorian. in all it's estimated that more than 70000 people have been left without food and shelter that's nearly one 5th of the bahamian population. was a katrina i know the people of new orleans with totally on i'm prepared for. we didn't they suspect it. but ted and some ways by the not for the magnitude and so when these people come they have been traumatized i do is make life for them with normal as possible. nassau has become a final stop for many hurricane survivors with no place else to go some here seem dazed and unsure of what they'll do next is my house destroyed i don't see
6:05 am
everything no clothes and i get the slippers and from here you know and they bring some clothes for us and you know what i need some stuff for a little. you know. i mean how. did this shelter is caring for more than 200 people the building is active passive but donations have been forthcoming guaranteeing everyone. a safe place to rest a decent meal and medical attention for those who need it we're at the fox hill community center in nassau where volunteers in some cases are up to their waists in donations but the need here in the bahamas is so great that any donations of food water medicine hygiene kits like these donated by the red cross are all very much welcome. shelters for the displaced can be found all around nassau which is home to 70 percent of the country's total population but as more evacuees arrive space becomes limited relief workers have begun setting up tents ahead of the arrival of
6:06 am
even more evacuees the concern now is that nassau may not be prepared for the long term care of the thousands whose communities have been destroyed many will rob lowe al-jazeera nassau bahamas. i keep stuff he is the senior emergency coordinator for unicef and he joins us now via skype thank you very much indeed for your time can you tell us where the the west of the damage is and kind of where you have to focus the aid efforts. thank you very much worse of the damage that i have observed yesterday in. was in a harsh harbor in march where most of the buildings were destroyed except a few strongarmed just show that he's in the hospital which was in a very good shape that everything was selected. people who ready are you know if i quit it or some of them were staying in at least the trend community centers and
6:07 am
churches where i have also observed that people were queuing to be evacuated in charge or tried. to not so. no the scale of the damage has really struck everyone as extraordinary isn't it i mean that the damage was incredibly intense around some of those areas that were hit what do you think there was enough preparation for the storm given that the forecasts were that it was coming. given the scale as magnitude of the crisis which has not been initially expected. it has been very diverse to think crisis it has significantly affected people's livelihood it affected people living. there were many lives lost 45 at this time but with might rise. be good thing that we have observed throughout the visit in
6:08 am
march harbor or that all women and children. from most of the communities were evacuated and whenever i have had a conversation with the community leaders who are religious leaders they have emphasized categorically that woman children and pregnant women were given a priority. right now most of them have been acquitted or relocated to. not south where their reintegration inroads into schools provision of type of social support to these kids and making sure that they have a sense of normalcy receive counseling undeceive support under the leadership of the government actually the national emergency management authority unit the other partners we are working together to see how base we can provide additional training and support to the mental health and psychological. service

convoys invoking a facet of kills 29 people the government says it's increasing security efforts particularly near its northern border with mali. and rescue workers in the bahamas are continuing to search through debris for bodies after her can dory and devastated the islands last week the death toll currently stands at 45 but that number is expected to soar. the u.s. president says as far as he's concerned the afghanistan peace talks are dead donald trump says it was his decision to end negotiations with taliban leaders after he announced that they'd been due to visit camp david. they're dead they're dead as far as i'm concerned they're dead they thought that that it killed people in order to put themselves in a little better to go shared a position where they did that they killed 12 people one happened to be a great american soldier a wonderful young man from puerto rico families from puerto rico and you can't do
6:20 am
that can't do that with me so the debt is far as i'm concerned and we've hit. the taliban harder in the last 4 days that they've been in over 10 years so that's the way it is. similar in washington so they've been also to and fro. how this decision came about to cancel come david what what's your interpretation of what actually happened. well essentially it's all over donald trump has said that there's not going to be another round of talks we know that the taliban met with the united states in the catelli capital of doha there were known runs of talks it seems there was a deal but donald trump came under pressure from his national security advisor john bolton who was against the idea of reaching some sort of settlement with the taliban and also a number of conservative commentators have said that a peace deal with the taliban is what to quote one of them failure looks like and so that must have been weighing on his mind but he made the decision to call the taliban and the afghan president to camp david that was due to happen this week the
6:21 am
timing seems a bit off given that we're coming up to the 18th anniversary of the attacks in new york on 911 but he was pushing ahead with that until thursday when there was the attack in kabul which killed an aide to a soldier and also a u.s. serviceman and at that point donald trump seemed to think well we're not going to do this anymore this despite the fact when he says you can't be killing people in total peace one might pompeo his secretary of state was on the sunday programs in the united states just 24 hours ago saying that they've killed thousands of taliban fighters in the last 10 days so it seems that donald trump is done with this idea he's put it aside the one thing of course to say is that he has done this sort of thing before when talking about north korea after the 2nd summit he said no it's done we're not going to talk anymore it's all over and then suddenly it popped up on the d.m.z. the demilitarized zone and met with kim jong un there so when don't trump says it's
6:22 am
over it might not be fully over but this was something that he said he wanted to do before the 2020 election essentially wants to bring the numbers of u.s. troops in there this is america's longest war but just as he was leaving the white house he said look we've defeated them militarily and the thing. again then we'll defeat them militarily again as well so the plan was to take a few 1000 soldiers reduce the number from 14000 that in afghanistan at the moment don't to somewhere around 67000 the plan no seems to be on hold as well 2 although we are checking with the americans to see if there's any confirmation that the withdrawal plan is on hold but as far as donald trump is concerned no more talks with the taliban no more meetings in doha and no withdrawal of u.s. troops for the time being and fisher thank you very much indeed pro-government
6:23 am
candidates have suffered big losses in moscow local elections despite some opposition members being barred from running and reports of ballot stuffing president putin's united russia lost a 3rd of its seat in the city's assembly despite it's kind of it technically running as independents britain's approval ratings are also dropped after an unpopular hike in the pension age falling incomes and a crackdown on the opposition party also lost a number of seats in the far east but its candidates won in other areas sello. in general we can say that the tactical vote worked for the 1st time the work much better than we had expected so this was an experiment and in those cities and regions where it was implemented for the 1st time it worked very well. nicholai ribicoff is vice chair of the liberal opposition in your local party joins us now from st petersburg and thanks for being with us i can either say that you won your party won 3 seats in moscow is that right was a possible mainly because of total voting. for the project in moscow do
6:24 am
more and. more. great results for yabloko for the 25 years history. and this is it partly because of this tactical voting that novelli organizes has that how you benefited. i think. not results of its results of many years broke of the gab local moscow citizen and let happen about 40 percent for our deputies in a let's show this. and all political project which is in the harbor region it's religion of it's part of russia. and i think. it out of your work in the theater because the result of our work. in its
6:25 am
politics from all public up about 200 pages of local councils in moscow. how much difference i mean united russia has suffered losses but but it still looks like it it will retain its majority how much difference will your gains make. oh it's very different now with other elections because. of members of most of the money from the district from the electoral districts may have no party for them not for them and. it's the. result of elections is absolutely finished or united trust of mr putin because no one no one remembers of most of them are from united russia because all of them said that they are not from united russia they are not from the potence party independent candidate so they will be independent members of moscow city duma and i
6:26 am
think that really it was that they finished. because when you candidate would like to say no we are not from united russia we are not from the putin's party is the real thing is open system. tell me if you insist that at the moment i understand that you are looking into some potential election fraud this can you tell me about not. to my mother's think it is the. city council because they have to pull help about 100. 1 election. sunday back with the great problem with election committed because the organizer. it's a case and many many districts and now it more than 24 hours
6:27 am
from election day amount have no results. 50 percent of the actual districts. it's very big very particular some are more probable that the court needs support. from the local party and for example now. one of the of them if you could if the government elect so committed to chair could go out or for election. it. nicholai remark of you very much indeed for taking time to join us thank you. it's a nice new coalition government has won the 1st of 2 confidence votes the alliance of the populous 5 star movement and center left democratic party was comfortably supported by a majority of m.p.'s in the lower house but it will be much closer in the senate
6:28 am
where the coalition has a majority of just one members of 5 stars form a coalition partner the anti immigration league party demonstrated outside parliament alongside other right wing groups its leader mateo salvini pulled out of the previous coalition hoping to trigger a new election which would give his party a majority. if you're planning to take a lot away from the vote for months but i can't escape an election forever and when the italian people vote once more we win you will win i'm certain is my word we're not going to back down. fighters who laid down their weapons in colombia say they remain committed to peace despite former far commanders urging them to rearm the commanders also accuse the government of betraying the deal which ended colombia's civil war 3 years ago the message reached former fighters living in demobilization camps i was under amputee has been to meet some of them. deep in the.
6:29 am
a new town is born graffiti on the wall still tells stories of rebellion the former firefighters are now working hard to grow or sell their craft beer they say they would be committed to a peace process despite the announcement by 5 former sec of a good man that he and others would take up arms again. these divisions always happen among armies with people that decide to take a different path we're here because of our commitment and our conscience it's clear those who remain firm are welcome those who leave will deal with the responsibility this is one of 24 camps built all over colombia for the read to gratian of almost 14005 years since the signing of the peace deal in 2016 many have married had children built a family yet signs of their struggle to reintegrate into civilian life are easy to see. their whole water sewerage and are yet to be connected to the electricity
6:30 am
grid leaving go. to rely on a gas generator to operate this co-operative business the leads. going on along with the government has not fulfilled its obligations with the agreement they don't have the political will to implement what they owe them and i find it mind boggling that the government of the present do offers a $1000000.00 for information on the dissidents when it would make more sense to use that money for reintegration united nations figures show just 10 percent of former fighters have so far received credit for farming or other development projects and the government also announced it was investing almost $5000000.00 u.s. dollars to buy land for those projects but none has been bought since. he lays in the implementation of the peace deal have been compounded by worse a big security could be. 6 former fighters have been killed by other groups still
6:31 am

show his confidence in her majesty's government. id how are you meaning the opportunity to have an election with a view to removing the government there when he spoke last week it seemed that he might recover his nerve tonight by wait to see how he responds referring to his surrender bill he says and i quote last week that these bills pass. and gain royal assent and then he said we will back an election well. the surrender bill surrender has gone past it has gained wrongness and he has done his level best to rick this chance this country's chances of a successful negotiation by he's earned logic he must now go back an election.
6:39 am
and return to mention for 30 days to a religion i did one thing i heard just it would be unnecessary if i have a taste of the reality that and eventually is the only way to break the deadlock in the house and to serve the national interest by giving whoever is prime minister the strongest possible mandate to negotiate for our country next month. european council labor to have accepted this reality in their own leaflets. this weekend they say we needed general election nah. i'm going to offer my words and there are and yet throughout the weekend the right honorable gentleman is cronies together with those other opposition parties have been trying to disguise their proposed stress cowardice by coming up with ever more i'd wager
6:40 am
excuses to do then offer an election until the end of october or perhaps november when hell freezes over. in me did the 2 lead a and procrastination that has become the whole motto of the opposition why are they can i ving to delay breaks it in defiance of the referendum costing the country that's a 250000000 pounds a week for the privilege 200 to me if i think the privilege of doing enough to upgrade more than 5 hospitals and train 4000 new. be any possible explanation is that they fear that we will win it's nice to have and secure a renewed mandate to take this country i want over the e.u. . policy they now opponents and that is the story 10 of the this opposition is part of the last 3 is they have schemed to overturn the verdict of the british people
6:41 am
delivered in a referendum which in a frowning. irony almost all of them voted to hold it thanks mr speaker they didn't just hate to hold it's some of them even i'll give wave of pleasure go me. i'm seeing a thing. the prime minister the only way i want to do all these guys is take to give me an intervention but he's here reading off but that's only amount of money that is being spent going into your work paper now says. the whole who's monitoring this from parliament. the prime minister trying to retail his motion for a general election and accusing the opposition of conniving to delay bricks it and saying now is their opportunity if they had originally said they would back an election if the a bill they wanted to delay the bricks it was passed and again ruled assent how does how does the german corben deal with that one do you think. well this has been
6:42 am
a bit of a slow burner yes indeed last week jeremy corbyn did stand up in that debate and say he would support a general election and once that bill was passed subsequent to that other opposition party started saying they would not support an election until the bill was actually implemented and there was a big divide in labor to follow suit and such was the sort of growing sense of mistrust distrust aimed at boris johnson in particular that he wouldn't stick to his word that he wouldn't stick to the letter of the nor. the leader of the labor party was one round and in a rare sort of show of unity among opposition parties now all of them have decided they cannot and will not support an election until indeed the government has been forced if it is unable to get a deal on october the 17th from the e.u. at that last crucial summit to ask them for a further delay to breaks in the terms of the law passed this afternoon it received
6:43 am
or the sentence on the statute books the government now obliged albeit boris johnson still insisting there is no way he will do that number 10 saying there is no way they will see that done legally they are now obliged so how convincing you think is this line terms of people watching this and then when they say when talks about the opposition trying to connive to delay bret said is that perhaps one of the cards that he feels is is in strongest in this whole debate. yes i think it's very clear and has been since last week that this is very much the way boris johnson would like to frame the debate wants to frame the election coming it's inevitable of course will be at the timing is no longer in the is no longer in his control he wants to frame this as an election which pits himself and his party on the side of the people and democracy and the brakes it referendum decision against the opposition conniving with parliament as he. is there to delay to undermine
6:44 am
obfuscate potentially indefinitely to take breaks it completely off the table that's the frame of the debate that's really all he can throw at labor at this point and indeed it's an easy argument to make because an opposition leader ought to be champing at the bit for an election jeremy corbyn has asked for an election for every day of the last 3 years it is almost unheard of that an opposition would not accept the offer of an election in this case they feel they have very good reason for turning that down but it does have boris johnson a useful attack card against them in the build up to the election which as i say will come if not in october it's probably not going to come in october november i think the earliest likely date jonah thank you very much indeed. as you mentioned for the speaker of the new case no house of parliament has announced he's stepping down at the end of october traditionally the speaker is relatively unknown outside the u.k.

6:51 am
a 2nd attempt from the prime minister to call the election due to be followed by the suspension of parliament for 5 weeks johnson had been in dublin trying to talk up the prospects of a brics a deal but there was a flat response from his irish counterpart. who said it will be a herculean asked to get a deal strewed at this stage the focus here is on the back story the insurance policy to avoid a hard u.k. e.u. border between northern ireland an arm and johnson has suggestions on alternatives but there are no prospects of an agreement like now. i want to get a deal like you i've looked carefully at no deal i've assessed its consequences both for our country and and yours yes of course we could do it u.k. could certainly get through it but be in no doubt that outcome would be
6:52 am
a failure of state craft from which we would all be responsible for the backstop continues to be a critical component of the withdrawal agreements unless and until alternatives are found but we are open to alternatives but they must be realistic ones legally binding and workable and we haven't received such a post to date with the suspension of parliament do late on monday night the opposition here has done all it can in the time available to prevent a no deal breaks it there's no doubt an election is coming but short of breaking the law or actually getting a deal johnson doesn't look like going to the polls in the time frame he wants andrew simmons how jazeera westminster has got a general who's outside parliament in westminster so that whole debate at the moment on whether or not they should have an early election how is that going. well boris johnson just opened that debate a few minutes ago now we expect
6:53 am
a vote in about 90 minutes the prime minister clearly in election mode accusing the opposition of delaying briggs's of delaying the election the only answer could be that they fear they will lose it he said opening the 2nd motion in a week to try and get a general election he needs a 2 thirds majority for it to pass it didn't pass last week will it tonight well short answer no and that's because i sort of writ outbreak of unity among opposition parties means they will not support a call for an election until they're certain that no deal has been taken off the table on october the 31st in line with that opposition led backbench m.p. legislation that made it onto the statute books this afternoon that requires the government boris johnson to go off and seek an extension from the e.u. unless he's able to get a deal on october the 17th that october e.u. leaders summit and they want to see that happen they want an extension in place in the absence of a deal before they vote for an election so i think the most the next most likely
6:54 am
date for an election sometime in november and joan just while you were talking there the prime minister said i will not ask for breaks that delay how does that how does that work in practice what will that mean. well we don't know this is something that heads will be furiously pressed together about inside 10 downing street boris johnson has said since he took the leadership since he took the prime of prime ministership he would not ask for any sort of delay he would take this country out on october 31st it was the central plank of these leadership campaign and in the last few days he's made comments like i druther be dead in a ditch then have to do that well while the debate swirls about whether the government will comply with this law legal minds have suggested there's very little way around it they think they might be able to attach a letter to. that request saying well we're asking on the one hand but actually we don't really want an extension and hope that the e.u.
6:55 am
turned them down these things look like legal avenues that might more likely backfire the government we simply don't know much will be revealed after october after the protection of parliament tonight when they return on october the 14th those 1st few days ahead of that the summit so crucial so much at stake in this whole you drama breaks it drama and we will find out then whether the government has come up with its own we plan to try and get boris johnson out of this legal obligation that opposition m.p.'s have now put him in jail or have thank you very much indeed. 2 separate attacks on convoys in burkina faso have killed 29 people and it's highlighted a growing security problem for the west african nation some of the violence is split along religious lines with a string of attacks on catholic churches in may many blame the violence on groups across the border from northern mali the pressure is growing on the government

catherine soy has more from cairo in northern back in a faster. the government has issued a statement confirming this incident and that that's along the road ahead into the border with mali and one of the attacks happened in an area where we were filming just a few days ago and it's quite surreal because the landmine was planted in the example of patients who are out so this minibus that was carried civilians drove over the lot mine and exploded 15 people were killed the other incident happened about 50 kilometers from that location and it was on a motorcycle riders who are current relieved food for people who've been affected by the security problems with the situation still very dire along the way on our journey we so many many villages that have been desired and even the villages where some people walk you could just sense and feel the fear and the tension and some of

the people actually preparing to leave those villages so it's. even more dangerous as you go farther north and into the sahara region not access at all and on to the border with mali. it's one of the most dangerous routes in book enough. this road heads north to the buddha with mali we're told armed groups easily cross the porous border into kenya fassel and carry out attacks on villages and government troops. this minibus was destroyed by a roadside bomb. is one of the larger villages some people are only just returning home after fleeing when a neighboring village was a talked. about it but. says she would stay for long. my husband is in bus a local we fled after the attack in the next village just come back to get the rest

6:59 am
the people who live in this area and some of those we talked to elsewhere saying that they fled after hearing that other villages had been attacked. this man brought their families to safety after their villages ambushed and several people killed they believe the fighters have inflamed tensions between rival hardass and farming communities. the beginning before it was a continuation of a local ethnic conflict that has existed for a long time but now we believe it's beyond that people here say unless security forces succeed in stopping the violence they won't return home catherine. nathen book enough. rescue workers in the bahamas are continuing to search through debris for bodies after hurricane dorian devastated the islands last week the death toll currently stands at 45 but that number is expected to soar you enters around

a new deal breaks it is taken off the table earlier they voted to force the government to publish its assessment of how crushing out of the e.u. would affect the country johnston insists he won't negotiate to press it delay beyond the october 31st deadline even though a law came into force that makes delay breaks it until 2020 unless the government can strike a divorce summit next month. can i so i say again to everybody on the opposition benches that if you really want to join a brick state beyond october 31st which is what you seem to want to do then vote for an election and. decide to decide if they want to deny or not. 2 separate attacks on convoys invoking a facet of kill 29 people the government says it's increasing security efforts particularly near its northern border with marlee a state of emergency is in place in parts of the west african country more than 500 people have been killed by armed groups in booking

a fast so in the last 4 years rescue workers in the bahamas are continuing to search through debris for bodies after hurricane dorian devastated the islands last week the death toll currently stands at 45 but that number is expected to rise the u.n. says around 70000 people are needed food and shelter forty's in the capital nassau have asked people to open their homes to evacuees the u.s. president says that as far as he's concerned the afghanistan peace talks are dead donald trump says it was his decision to endure she actions with taliban leaders after he announced they had been due to visit camp david the president said he called off the talks because the taliban claimed responsibility for an attack that killed a u.s. soldier trump also stated he still thinking of withdrawing some of the $14000.00 u.s. troops stationed in afghanistan. that is coming up we look at where the biometrics are putting our security at risk. the algorithm is up next to stay with us which is

if you can't thanks for watching. the cost of priceless results on the threat the amazon rain forest is a blaze and it's linked to brazil's drive from would be some sort of production of the bats. global ambitions which have left investors now seeing some big losses. counting the calls on al-jazeera. i can unlock my phone with my face you can access your bank account with your voice and fingerprints are often the key information on a national id card all of this face voice fingerprints there are biometrics unique algorithmic measurements of us that are revolutionizing the process of identification but biometrics are far from perfect they convenience and seeming infallibility comes at a cop's most crucially our prophesy. well
7:22 am
biometrics are individual unique so much so that they've always served as a gold standard for identification with really high levels of accuracy and strong security fingerprints and d.n.a. databases have been the mainstay for police investigators for decades and across many parts of the world people who are literally used thumb prints in place of written signature. has been researching the growing use of biometrics there's also your face now which is being recorded so that's just your facial point that's called facial recognition technology your voice is biometric data there's also something called gait analysis which is how you walk so those are ways that they can identify you and another way is behavioral biometrics that might be your online
7:23 am
behavior so how you use their mouth where you click on things as you go through the internet but even how regular they are posting on facebook with a lot but you can can get just from people ordinary life and that's why it's so important to have this debate and in fighting if we all are giving our consent about whether or not we want such technology being used and if so under what circumstances and what regulatory checks. the world is on a mission a mission to give everybody a legal identity by 2030 that was a target set by the united nations as part of that sustainable development goals campaign the key segment of the population that the un is focusing on is the more than 1000000000 people who currently have no way to prove their identity. the un verified include millions of refugees traffic children homeless and other people who never get a chance to establish documents and create a digital footprint that's so essential for modern life. here
7:24 am
exactly can the united nations world food program is using biometric technology iris scans to provide aid to the camps 75. 1000 syrian residents refugees can shop for their groceries with the blink of an eye no need for a bank card all the registration papers the system is quite aptly named ip when a shopper has their iris scanned the world food program system verifies the person's identity against a biometric database held by the un high commission for refugees the u.n.h.c.r. then it checks the account that confirms the purchase and prints and i pay a receipt all of this happens in seconds and according to the world food program this not only makes transactions quicker but more secure here in jordan we use biometrics out indication for human reason 1. 100 percent
7:25 am
accountability on the identity of the person chasing and using the assistance that we provide and 2nd me to facilitate that entry process of the beneficiaries by not using the card by not using a pin in camps which is an environment where beneficially tend to go to the supermarket more people times during the month for ben going with their own iris it's easier than one with a car but it could. be . watching the iris enable shopping process is both fascinating and. this is
7:26 am
a super high tech system that's been rolled out in what you could call a low rights environment sure people here are under the protection of the united nations and have more rights than they would. in the walls rings of the countries they fled from such as syria however they also have little choice when it comes to giving up their biometrics. programs taking somebody's biometric data from them is about the most personal data that you could take these are not people who know thoroughly are in a position to ask for legal representation to have this explained to them 2nd if they don't want it what is the alternative that they can exercise instead are they using behavioral psychology as something called nudge the area to make it where it's just easier to hand over your data and then you get your food and your clothes and your money faster because that would be unethical we're testing out again extremely experimental really invasive technology on people who potentially have
7:27 am
some of the. rights and protections of anyone with a middle class person living in france or germany or the united states the united kingdom or sweden consents. to use their iris to pay for things or to transact probably not it's easy to see the immense potential of the idea to track a dispersement smooth out payments and reduce the chances of corruption from the world food program says the benefits go even though they are able to monitor shopping habits and traditional take and there's a possibility in the future that the credit histories of the refugees could help them bank accounts getline. they also think they've got the security bit covered. so that repeatedly leads the management over they've got to produce through it's got to show they're going to remember everything it's. so through the agreement we are able to access the beta sensitive data which again does not include me just the
7:28 am
case i'd need for a number of occasions so we are confident that the beat up being good crypto is. what public the reason why we are doing. that i would really buy the privacy and in fact assessment on the project to get them to need that if that a new thread. in the water we had able to tackle them and address them properly before they come to us. u.n.h.c.r. remain fully committed to their biometrics registration program so much so that their rapidly expanding it with the aim of be active in 75 countries by a 2020 the remain through lots of problematic questions that it that he get to be fully answered such as is the tech food proof who has access and how can anyone planned for the unforseen issues to come these are the kinds of questions that have made other aid organizations pools before jumping on board with by matric technology in 2015 ox fam voluntarily imposed
7:29 am
a moratorium on its use of by metrics in its work its stated given the number of unknown means around most effective operation and governance models and risks of this incredibly sensitive datta fulling into the wrong hands we felt it was best not to become an early adopter none fielding which by metrics has long being just is security and surveillance and facial recognition is one of most populous right now in china this being an exponential increase in the use of facial tracking an artificial intelligence to mana to citizens the united states also currently operates one of the law just facial recognition systems in the world with a database of a 117000000 americans with photos typically drone from driver's licenses and in the u.k. police forces have being trialing lie fischel where he nations since 2016 at public spaces such as shopping centers football matches protests music events and crowded
7:30 am
city spots so this green band that's behind me here in central london is a hot of the facial recognition technology trial that's being run by the metropolitan police and what it's doing is it's basically scanning people's faces when they walk past and then comparing that to a database that has want to defend instable suspects on it the met police say facial recognition could enable them to more easily protect people prevent offenses and bring offenders to justice however privacy groups such as big brother watch say the technology is authoritarian and lawless the group's legal and policy officer or a ferris even goes so far as to say that facial recognition is possibly the most dangerous surveillance mechanism that's ever been invented this facial recognition technology can capture up to 300 faces a seconds which could be around 18000 faces in a minute it's a vast vast number of people whom the police can identify check against police
7:31 am
databases for that police or immigration so what we're seeing is police i don't being able to identify people in seconds but put so much power in the hands of the state and the police which i think is fundamentally wrong it's not democratically accountable because there's no legal basis for this so this is an intense intrusive and or thorough tarion surveillance technology while advocates for facial recognition would debate some of gross assertions one thing is undeniable the technology currently being used by the u.k. police is dangerously inaccurate latest figures show that 96 percent of the met police is so-called matches when misidentifications and this research showing that many facial recognition algorithms will disproportionately misidentify darker skin tones and when. the cause is a new murs and they vary ranging from poor quality c.c.t.v. images to the fact that the algorithms are often trained to so to speak using faces
7:32 am
at a mostly white and male 5th technology and looks like a really nice quick fix to the fact that we have not got as much money to pay for human intelligence operations so it sounds great in theory the problem is if the thought worked very well on people who are not white men which is quite a lot of the population on the planet being arrested wrongfully means that you get put into predictive policing algorithms for the more often you're having contact. with law enforcement the more you are at risk of being stopped again even erroneously and also people in your network because they build the network out of number just about you proponents of facial recognition in the u.k. will argue that issues with accuracy can be fixed they aren't wrong technology can always be improved on what's a bigger concern is that currently there are no laws governing the use of facial technology in the country whether it's the state using it or even private companies i think what's really troubling at the moment is the technology is being rolled out
7:33 am
without legislation and empowered regulators this is not technology to have a very good track record of being countable so i can find out who is using it under what circumstances what we've done with the data where that stored what's the track record of cybersecurity on keeping that data protected all of the things we have no idea has just been rolled out when people feel that they're being observed all the time that has a really chilling effect to things like your right to protest your right to go to a job interview to hang out with some friends to go to church these are things that perhaps the state doesn't have a right to keep an eye on the met police have defended the trials saying they're quote overt and that members of the public are informed through post isn't leaflets but at the trial i was at overt would be the word i'd use there were literally hundreds of people rushing through the space and the chances of seeing the tiny signs reading the leaflets or even understanding what the unmarked van was being useful when minimal i stopped
7:34 am
a few people to see what they thought of the trial. not the level of invasion of privacy but then we live in not wild in my opinion i think it's a good thing to have facial recognition because i as long as you're not doing anything bad and it also helps the police track people down to be honest there are technologies going at the moment this will be the norm all around the world so i think we just need to get used to it if you've done nothing wrong there's no issue i think if you really believe that the state. never done anything wrong to its citizens then you have nothing to fear from this technology but as we know no state has a perfect truck record we should not be putting so much power into the hands of the state and the police take a look around you in the world the technology is already being used by certain countries all you have to do is pick up a newspaper and see people who are being incarcerated in concentration camps in china right now biometrics data is part of that that's how they're monitoring those people and tracking them and anyone who comes into contact with them right so
7:35 am
there's your proof of concept of what could be done now it's really easy to go that would never happen here but your government can always change right so history is full of examples but even in the broad democracies in times of war in times of economic difficulty people get voted into power who change so you have to think about how a 5th term is being built and what it could be used for years down the road when there's a very different political flavor. the u.k. collects biometrics from another key segment of the population one that many wouldn't even consider children if you're aware that schools have been recording the biometrics of children for the past 20 years it is estimated that since 1909 approximately 70 to 80 percent of children in the u.k. have interacted with some sort of biometric device in school picking is a parent campaign if it children's rights and creator of the buy metrix in school.
7:36 am
think companies are putting the tech into a school setting because you put a compliant population school children ask all question if that being surveilled little bit more than the general population simply doesn't know any better the concern i have with biometrics in schools is that the way back in 1999 and throughout the whole of the next decade since 2000 is that we as an adult population when using biometrics a toll not even on phones and suddenly we had children as young as 3 in fall using the fingerprint to get. an out of school systems the growth of affordable biometric technology means that fingerprints iris scans facial recognition and infrared palm scanning have been used to speed up access to canteens libraries registrations payments and lockers a big selling point of course has been security by metric unable to access is seen as a foolproof way of keeping school building safe however a big concern is how robust the systems are who has access to the biometric data is there a process for deletion and what happens if the system is compromised i also sent
7:37 am
the puppet occasion a few years ago freedom of information request about a tech the software or a tech to criticize dundas is that adhering to sort of international standards of the hardware is it secure nobody can answer no no we've never text system no we don't know if they said edmonds national standards it's just seems to have survived being gone under the carpet a nobody is aware of you know what's in schools what's being sold to schools who are tax us to it and whether or not there's been any biometric data breaches for entire generations of british schoolchildren questions of consent around their biometrics have been bypassed to a great extent it was only in 2012 that a law was enacted putting in place processes for consent to be given or withheld the overall effect of biometrics in schools however is that the sharing in use of very personal data and implications of surveillance of the normalised that's millions of british children who've been taught to understand that it's no big deal
7:38 am
to hand over your body data in order to get a service or a product they don't understand how it can be abused unnecessarily there's a reason that they should understand it because nobody's helping them to understand it we haven't had public discussion about it the test but the thought that it isn't necessarily the tag because we've got the tech already thinks that. and if you go into schools and you desensitized to normalize the surveillance technology. this is that i've already been a pretty. good argument sort of for all hold to be a little bit. wary of the word smart and especially when it's loaded with small cities or small because it is the sense the assailants. it would be one thing if extensive biometric systems would be just used by governments or state funded organization. it would make the lack of accountability or inaccuracy or outdated security protocols any easier to live with but at least across many countries
7:39 am
governments can be questioned pressured to give answers of some. the reality however is that biometrics are increasingly being used by private companies. recruitment agencies online d.n.a. in ancestry services and even private security companies all of them taking and using our by metrics and finding out how the technologies being used what daughter is being stored and with whom it's been shit not just today but also in the future involves a lot of probing because these transparent systems even some of them are seemingly benign. can pose a threat to lots of people for instance are really interested in finding out about their family history so they're handing over their d.n.a. to companies like. the unique combination of the world's largest d.n.a. and family tree databases who can show you a more precise picture of your origin if you. have you were right about your d.n.a. with
7:40 am
a private company than you do with law enforcement. right there. in your head for just a moment and the implications through and from country of your d.n.a. could be used to reveal for instance predispositions to health problems that you might and in countries where there is a national health insurance and you have to pay to be insured for your help. and you would never know maybe even how they got the data because this is all being potentially traded by a 3rd. party broker because it's not illegal yet because no one's regulated it your biometrics are a really powerful data set and they're being used not only to id you to more reliably track you but also to judge you and to make assessments about your personality and your behavior there are companies that offer this exact service take for example on its website it says that leverage is a i in video to provide comprehensive candid insights when a candidate takes a video interview there creating thousands of unique points of data
7:41 am
a candidate to verbal and nonverbal cues give us insight into their emotional engagement thinking and problem solving style according to high view its services are already being used by big employers like unilever vodafone and dunkin donuts. this is something that's increasingly used in the real world is that the share range of things we can i do and the ways that we can use data to affect people's lives so for example machine learning systems are used to. recommend adverts and shop ensnares but they're also used to assess people for jail sentences and so if those algorithms have got problems whether they be technical inaccuracy is or biassed with an algorithm we need to start trust and i try to choose. ryan kelly is a researcher on computing and information systems at the university of melbourne he's been involved in an elaborate biometric experiment to raise awareness about
7:42 am
the potentials and limitations of biometric analysis it's called biometric mera and i gave it a go using nothing but an image of my face the system produces a detailed report and its assessment of my age race level of attractiveness and even aspects of my personality ranging from happiness and we'd miss to aggressiveness and responsibility to teach the algorithm to do this research is us human volunteers to judge the. thousands of photos for the same characteristics i see the. times every day yet i really did not hear it you're getting that right. now it's easy to laugh at the results or shrug them off as just a bit of fun but there's more to it than that so one of the reasons it's important to teach people about the limitations of artificial intelligence and these kinds of analyses is because people might assume that because it's done by a computer it's objective i'm correct and what they might not realize is actually an operation like by much marrow draws on a data set of faces that have been rated by people and so those ratings contain
7:43 am
human biases and so one example in the dates of biometric merriest or anybody with a beard is classified as aggressive so of course i am classified as an aggressive person by biometric merit even though i don't think i am i hope i'm not so if an operation like this is the plot in the real world immediately that people are classified perhaps unfairly and in ways that aren't accurate in my say so for example you can imagine a scenario where you have a set of job accounts and you want to make it easy for people to. kind of. filter them based on say responsibility and so somebody who is responsible for that task might say oh i can use biometric merit to identify people who are high and responsibility without really realizing that it's not an accurate thing to do and there are various problems associated with that regardless of those problems by metric technologies being developed in used at a rate that far at strips the pace at which regulations
7:44 am
a big created in many senses it feels as though we're sitting on a ticking time bomb. we don't even have an established field of ethics for technology there's voluntary codes by companies these are not legally enforceable you with a citizen or a consumer cannot use these to protect you in any way to derive comfort from not so i think we're entering a really interesting space in terms of what it means to be human because as we become a more quantified. there's going to such a temptation to take all data about you and reduce you to zeros and ones that is what is coming and whether or not you want that to happen to be something that's discussed now we're going to technology out and saying that this is going to change the way that we work and live within the next 51020 years to me that it's really worrying we need to elevate ethics for technology right to the top of the agenda.
7:45 am
my advice would be. no data is 100 percent secure. you should always be able to know who is taking your data how it's being used what right you have to correct or amend it. and whether or not you can delete it and that goes for law enforcement or any government branch in your country but also any private company that you might interact with children. in the question. and i think generally being prudent keeping a. minimum. a good thing to do also as well. so do you enjoy amazing. but just be very. data.

in this life the most incredible stories are often true. and sharing go on experiences. makes the unfamiliar for me or. in this life diversity makes a difference understanding the importance of being part of something much greater than our soul in this life what i want to use is freedom of expression. the right to mortgage. sean and a lot into the darkness. because you dislike the desire to understand that. makes us human. and the human condition is universe of.

7:50 am
significant move that parliament will make the most 5 weeks against the will of the house of commons is being suspended critics say this is johnson's tactic to stop more parliamentary interference in his plans well john a whole has been monitoring the parliamentary debate will be speaking to him in just a minute but 1st this report from andrew simmons. boris johnson preparing for an expected defeat in his 2nd attempt to call a snap elections only attack ahead of the vote just a few really want to deny a brick seat beyond october 31st which is what you seem to want to do then vote for an election and that. side the people decide if they wanted to night or not a rowdy poem and hours away from being pro does suspension that will last 5 weeks the leader of the opposition hitting back they are eager for an election but as keen as we are we are not prepared to risk inflicting that he's asked out for you
7:51 am
know details on us our communities our jobs our services or indeed our rights. are another defeat for the government with an order to reveal all private messages between it's a vices about holders to prorogue parliament also assessments of a damage a no deal bricks it will cools 2 and that vote was only the side show on a grey monday in westminster with more political drama playing out at every turn johnson had been in dublin trying to talk up the prospects of a brics a deal but there was a flat response from his irish counterpart lee of rob who said it will be a cutie and asked to get a deal screwed at this stage the focus here is on the back story the insurance policy to avoid a hot u.k. e.u. border between northern ireland and arm and johnson has suggestions on alternatives
7:52 am
but there are no prospects of an agreement right now. i want to get a deal. like you i've looked carefully at no deal i've assessed it's called quinces both for our country and and yours and yes of course we could do it u.k. could certainly get through it but to be in no doubt that outcome would be a failure of state craft which we would all be responsible for backstop continues to be a critical component of the withdrawal agreements unless and until alternatives are found but we are open to alternatives but they must be realistic ones legally binding and workable and we haven't received such a post to date with the suspension of parliament do late on monday night the opposition here has done all it can in the time available to prevent a no deal breaks it there's no doubt an election is coming but short of breaking
7:53 am
the law or actually getting a deal johnson doesn't look like going to the polls in the time frame he wants andrew simmons how jazeera westminster rajon a hole is live for us outside the british parliament in westminster jonas the government's not expected to win this vote are there likely to be any surprises. no frankly i think that's very unlikely the opposition parties in a rich show of unity of agreed they will not support an election until no deal is taken off the table on october 31st or the prime minister is able to reach a new deal with the european union at a summit in brussels on october 17th in other words if he can't get a new deal they want him to comply with the new law passed at the behest of opposition m.p.'s to seek an extension if he can't get a deal and that's something that boris johnson repeatedly this evening has said he simply will not do well let me bring in my guest alan wager joins us he's with the
7:54 am
think tank u.k. in a changing europe good to see you again alan if this vote is not successful for boris johnson and it's hugely unlikely that it will be what options are left to him to get the election that he wants and to be able to fight it on the grounds that he can win well the 1st thing is the election he wanted at the outset of being prime minister really an election before that do or die a pledge on the 31st of october is now as of today not possible to get in a comeback after 5 weeks of the party conference season in the middle of october and he did to be faced with a fairly simple turris it's either go and get that extension that he's been a mandate to do by the by the house of commons he's been forced to do by the house of commons or you can resign as prime minister and he may see that as a more elect torelli sensible strategy to do there's no easy answers here for boris johnson and everything looks difficult and it could ever the everything any choice he makes could actually be damaging for his legs or chances for me so he swears he
7:55 am
won't go and get that extension the option is that the only option available to him to resign and if so how would that work with other options are testing the law through the courts and so on but the issue is then key breck city is within his cabinet people like the attorney. general geoffrey cox have said at that point probably that they would then resign so really talking about is something to be possible to keep the conservative party together and test the rule of law in the u.k. to that extent he really is going to be faced with that pretty simple choice and believe it or not if he were to resign we wouldn't we're not talking about the conservative party giving up power this would be a tactic a ploy it would be a brief tactic there'd be an election almost you know in the middle of november with within 5 weeks of. him resigning would be a very temporary measure but potentially that comes with a huge amount of electoral risk as well so if he goes for the extension then nigel ferrars in the brics a party of nipping at his heels if he lets germany corben into number 10 on the
7:56 am
basis that jeremy corbyn can see this extension he wants i'm not going anywhere near it that he's open the door number 10 to germany called in the key strategy the key message of the conservative party has long been jeremy hogan is too dangerous to be prime minister but with the idea that he didn't fight an election saying look it was jeremy corbin who got this extension jeremy corbyn used the term to put it into bricks and let me ask you about a deal he says he's determined to get a deal despite all those who are about a no deal and he will go to brussels on october the 17th and try and do that with all that's going on with all the mistrust with all the broken promises of change plans in the johnson administration more chance of the e.u. actually acceding feeling under enough pressure to give him what he wants well it's been another long day in british politics but at the start of the day at 9 o'clock boris johnson was in a press conference with. and he didn't look happy it was a very frosty press conference and. regulative very clear that he no fundamental
7:57 am
change is that backstop anyway of potentially reordering things by going for a northern irish a new backstop the sort of alternatives that have backs up but the problem is there's no way that's going to get 3000 commons while keeping his party intact and if he did that he would leave. seats the backs of party and levites the backs of body and given as we say everything is folks in an election here nobody will get really able to do that ok thank you so much for your time we will know in a very short while now whether or not this motion by the government passes with its 2 thirds majority i wouldn't hold your breath it's most unlikely back to you journal at westminster general come back to you of course when the result of that vote comes through but for now john thank you well if a general election is called one of the tightest battles will be in the city of canterbury that's just southeast of london in the 2017 election labor won the seat from the governing conservatives for the 1st time in almost 100 years thanks in
7:58 am
part to a large student vote there it was also almost evenly split in the 2016 brigs that referendum with 51 percent of people voting to lead the e.u. paul brennan traveled to canterbury to gauge the mood there now. the river star winds serenely through historic camp to bring far from the political storms of westminster punters glide on crystal clear water braving september. it's a far from typical constituency but a crucial battleground you get the students who are on the whole very very liberal usually on the on the left of center. then but you also go to a fairly affluent section of canterbury. who in my experience can be quite a grew a civil a conservative tourism is big business here more than $7000000.00 visitors a year generating $550000000.00. uncertainty has
7:59 am
a direct impact and we actually had a number of a number of school groups from from europe council because they were concerned about chaos in the laser kalai and they're worried about having their kids stuck in traffic for hours and hours and hours in 2017 the city's 40000 strong student body helped return a labor m.p. here a shock result in a strongly conservative region with the next election date still uncertain only the conservative party has so far named its candidate and she's already knocking on doors stockpiling campaign materials and mobilizing supporters i want a general election i want to give the people of canterbury the chance to vote for a conservative because i've got a big program and i want to get on with delivering so from my point here it can't come soon enough. the timing will be crucial an early election might reduce the size of the significant student vote and tactical campaigning might also emerge. if

there's some kind of alliance be an official alliance or an unofficial alliance i think people might vote for that i think they'll be a lot of conservative voters who are not of the the mindset that says that. no deal is better than no exit what if the prime minister ploughs on regardless and ignores parliament is beginning to look like parliament isn't respected parliamentary sufferance isn't being respected by the government and it's a wholly unprecedented situation it really does draw into question the whole. idea of parliamentary democracy in britain it's quite scary to be honest the 2017 election results here in council he was perhaps the results of some unique practice the large student population the lackluster campaign for by the sitting conservative candidates but just as shaw says pilgrim 600 years ago came to this city seeking enlightenment political observers could do a lot worse than look to this constituency as an indicator of the results of the

next general election paul brennan al-jazeera counterpart. also to come here on the news hour including they survived hurricane dorian but the future is still uncertain for thousands of people displaced in the bahamas. a call for former rebel fighters in colombia to take up arms again. and in support afghanistan's cricket is celebrating an historic win over here that store in the sport a little bit later in the program. the u.n. says violence and has forced nearly 300000 people to leave their homes 2 separate attacks or 29 people killed and it's highlighted a growing security problem for the west african nation some of the violence is split along religious lines and many blame the unrest on groups who cross the border from northern mali catherine so isn't this exclusive report from. the government has issued a statement confirming this incident and that that along the road heading to the
8:02 am
board out with miley in one of the attacks happened in an area where we were filming just a few days ago and it's quite surreal because the landmine. location this mini bus that was car drove over the lot mine and exploded 15 people were killed. happened about 50 kilometers from that location and it was all right through our car and leave people who've been affected by the thank you. the problems with the situation still very dire along the way on our journey we so many many villages that have been desired and even the villages where some people walk you could just sense and feel the fear and the tension and some of the people actually preparing to leave those villages so it's. even more dangerous as you go farther north and into the sahara region not access at all and on to the border with mali.
8:03 am
it's one of the most dangerous routes in book enough. this road heads north to the border with miley we're told armed groups easily cross the porous border into begin a fossil and carry out attacks on villages and government troops. this minibus was destroyed by a roadside bomb. is one of the larger villages some people are only just returning home after fleeing when a neighboring village was attacked. but. says she would stay for long. my husband is in bus a local we fled after the attack in the next village i've just come back to get the rest of our things. from the father north the more dangerous it is. the gunshots you're hearing from our police escort as
8:04 am
a warning to any armed people who could be in hiding. what's happening in the country is part of a regional conflict that began when colonel gadhafi was ousted in libya. armed groups crossed the sahara desert and started an insurgency in northern mali and then spread across the sahara region until 2 years ago but was largely safe now hundreds of people have been killed and many more displaced this is one of many villages we've seen along the way in this homestead for example it appears people left in quite a hearty this food there it seems that they were preparing to eat these pots and pans everywhere and they also left the animals and animals are very important to the people who live in this area and some of those we talked to saying that they fled after hearing that other villages had been attacked. this man brought their
8:05 am
families to safety after their villages ambushed and several people killed they believe the fighters have inflamed tensions between rival hard and farming communities. the beginning before it was a continuation of a local ethnic conflict that has existed for a long time but now we believe it's beyond that. police tell us hours after we left this area several people were killed when a minibus were traveling in heat a landmine the government has declared a security emergency in 6 regions in the north and east people here say unless security forces succeed in stopping the violence they won't return home catherine. nathen book enough. rescue workers in the bahamas are still searching through daybreak. dorrian devastated islands last week the death toll stands at 45 but that number is expected to soar the u.n.
8:06 am
says around 70000 people are in need of food and shelter authorities in the capital nassau have asked people to open their homes. well the u.s. president says very bad people including gang members and drug dealers could be among hurricane dorian survivors trying to come to the u.s. from the bahamas as evacuees have been arriving in the u.s. in recent days but on sunday hundreds of people were prevented from boarding a ferry to florida because they didn't have u.s. visas and u.s. customs and border protection chief said that was a mistake let's bring in the opossum is a former secretary of the organization of american states he's also served as trinidad and tobago sam bacile to the u.s. joins us live now from washington d.c. passes how difficult is it going to be to keep the plight of the bahamas at the forefront of the news agenda in hurricane dorian may be gone but thousands of people are still in need of desperate help indeed there and thank you for having me and i'm happy you asked that question as your question the new cycle is generally 5
8:07 am
to 7 days and i think the critical issues facing the people of the bahamas need to be addressed and gently and it is but my hope is that it is kept in the cycle because we have to think very short to medium and long term for the bahamas and its ability to get back on its feet for doing this catastrophe and one of the things that your group is doing to help people on the ground we are we have been able to mobilize well over 60 organizations stretching from trinidad and tobago already up to washington d.c. and as far as trans atlantic to italy really trying to move supplies that are needed as a matter wouldn't see portable water food clothing portable shelter transportation sanitation health supplies baby supplies generators you would need it and i this is an appeal really to the international community to keep supporting it because it work as has just begun 5 years after the storm and what about help from the bahamas government because there's been widespread criticism lack of coordination at
8:08 am
government level to this disaster. in any healthy democracy. criticism is expected and i have seen evidence where the government is in the trying to sort of leaders with well over 80 organizations trying to support the nation effort only grow and of course the inherent challenges in that quote a nation effort from you know intra transportation into ireland movement of people and of course you have to come for the people who have been displaced well over 70000 lives and the idea is to collect that you can get the resources to them so we can optimally leverage opportunities by all the stakeholders and organizations including government trying to bring relief to the plight of the people of the bomb us just a just a final thought from you is there a broader message to the international community i mean there are dozens of storms a year in the caribbean but is there a wider issue about climate change and climate action plans absolutely
8:09 am
correct and is known to be up paradise and up with until climate death zone i don't think the time has come over and over a year after year with these storms we start thinking very seriously about climate smart action that is need to get an adaptive to the issue of climate change and how it affects particularly the people of the caribbean and busted on the past and thank you very much indeed for talking to al jazeera pleasure thank you $48.00 u.s. states and 2 territories of joint a bipartisan investigation into the potentially anticompetitive practices of several tech giants the antitrust inquiry will focus on google in particular which is face complaints regarding how it runs the advertising side of its business the company is accused of using its search engine to lead consumers to its own products at the cost of its competitors google says it will cooperate fully with all investigations well the attorneys general involved say the investigation is important for the protection of consumers and businesses it used to be
8:10 am
a day when we searched google that we would be presented with links unrelated to the global business. very compelling analyses suggest that the overwhelming number of query responses relate to google businesses and or advertisers that pay for that slot within those links attorney generals really care about where the rubber meets the road and that is for the residents of their states and consumers we also care about businesses especially small. that may be locked out as a result of what may be monopolistic power and america's to trust is a collection of business regulations that promote competition to the benefits of consumers facebook google apple and amazon already being investigated for potential violations of antitrust law at
8:11 am
a national level without investigations looking into whether the tech giants use their market power to crush a quiet rivals privacy campaigners also believe that mass acquisition of consumer data is reducing the quality of consumers' choices and increasing the cost about the thais in the u.s. investigations join other inquiries by the european union that could lead to the breakup of the tech giants particle hangnail has more now from washington. it's a company so big that its name has become a verb we're talking about google something you might have used dozens of times today well now there are 50 attorney generals from 48 states and 2 territories that are investigating google to find out if he has a monopoly a monopoly in this country if proven can be broken up forced to sell parts of itself you know they compare this to david versus goliath and google has faced investigations in the u.s. before pretty much coming through it unscathed but these attorney general say that they're going to look at whether or not they're it's not just the advertising
8:12 am
google's quote got the market on whether or not they're manipulating search engines to their own benefit so this is going to be a wide. ranging investigation it's going to take a very long time and it's not just those attorney generals that are investigating the federal justice department is investigating google and so are members of congress well let's bring in larry magid he's c.e.o. of comics a few dot old that's an internet safety and security organization he joins us live via skype from palo alto in california laurie good to have you back on the program let me ask you i mean tech giants like google facebook apple amazon are already being investigated for potential violations of anti trust no so what's different this time around and how significant is this move by the 48 states well one thing it significant is that these are attorneys general across the political spectrum you have democrats and republicans who can't agree on what to have for lunch typically but are agreeing that they need to go after google and by the way all of the other tech giants as well so i think that fit difficult and i also think it's
8:13 am
significant that even though they are beginning the investigation around advertising practices there's a broader interest here in their press conference today some of the attorney general talked about privacy from talked about by if in fitch results so it's a broad investigation into google's practices focused on advertising but really much broader than that yeah as you say larry much of the focus is on google iraq complaints of its advertising and how it uses its search engine to lead consumers to its own products how much trouble is google actually in over this. i think it's in minor trouble you know the at the end of the day if you look at the history of actions in the united states over the last 30 years there's been a lot of rift flapping but not much really really horrible things happening to companies probably the biggest threat was back in the late ninety's to microsoft which at one point a judge ordered to be broken up but that was overturned and nothing ever happened other than some fines and if a myth true for example if you look at that $5000000000.00 fine against facebook
8:14 am
just a few weeks ago by the federal trade commission $5000000000.00 is a lot of money but on a percentage basis it's a drop in the bucket for facebook so by get fares we're going to see from find some change in private see in other practices but google is going to be here a long time from now and they're not threatened by this it's an interesting point you make president also a big privacy concerns over the lack of data protection and how personal data is used and stored why is this still such a big issue larry well because privacy is there are privacy if you would say in the u.k. in other countries if that big issue in the google and google makes its money by profiling people by advertising based on your behavior and that by definition invades people's privacy and so it's a huge concern not only in the united states of course in the european union and throughout the world all right to larry magid there in palo alto california thank you for talking to us it's my pleasure thank you tom for

a me 300000 people to leave their home it's thought the u.s. president says peace talks with the afghan taliban odd dead donald trump out invites the delegation to us side at camp david but said he cooled off the top so because the taliban claim responsibility for not tock that killed a u.s. soldier from washington is on fish are the president's confront what he suggested in a series of tweets over the weekend peace talks with the taliban are over we had a meeting scheduled it was my idea and it was my idea to terminate it i didn't even i didn't discuss it with anybody else the u.s. and the taliban had 9 runs of detailed and difficult talks in the khatami capital of doha it was reported a deal had been agreed in principle the u.s. would start a gradual withdrawal of $14000.00 troops in return the taliban would cut any keyser the al qaeda and offer security assurances to the us. but an attack in kabul
8:20 am
a few days ago which killed 12 including an american soldier so the president revealed secret peace talks had been planned for the presidential retreat at camp david but were no cancelled. ending the 18 year war in afghanistan has been a focus of donald trump as he faces reelection but in an exclusive interview with al jazeera the taliban says it would have ended attacks on american forces if a deal had been reached. signing an agreement with them. then we have. not walked out there and toward him. safe passage one political expert says donald trump made a basic diplomatic error given his lack of understanding of international politics he thinks he can negotiate something when he doesn't even understand what he's dealing with the us was expected to start withdrawing troops in the coming months and the president seems to suggest that's no not going to happen we beat them militarily but as soon as we leave it seems to form again we would beat them very
8:21 am
easily militarily if we wanted to by doing certain things and i'm not talking we're afghan president ashraf ghani was not involved in the peace talks and the meeting at camp david was aimed at getting him to sign on there will be presidential elections and afghanistan at the end of the month and the water years that with the collapse of the peace process they will be bloody and violent alan fischer al-jazeera washington let's take you live now to the british parliament live pictures there from the house of commons where that 2nd vote that motion put forward by boris johnson the prime minister you're seeing on your screen is there to hold the election m.p.'s have been debating the motion and the results of that vote still to come through let's cross live now to journal hold who joins us from outside parliament jonah so the government's not expected to win this vote and there shouldn't be any surprises that he will lose it again.
8:22 am
on a technicality the government did in fact when the vote. but they didn't get the 2 thirds majority required to have an election said john the letter sent to us jordan's are each other letter sent to us to the because we just like what boris johnson said in the house this weekend listen to what he has to say yes say in the edge of the house cannot choose it will not let anyone else choose this week it was always the only to be a resolution to sides only to be undecided to time into dinner adamant for a drink and say now the house will move to adjourn and resume the state opening in the queen's speech on october 14th and i hope the opposition will use that time to reflect meanwhile this government to press song 8 with negotiating i do you have war while preparing to
8:23 am
leave without one you have i will go to that crucial summit in brussels on october 17th and no matter how many devices this parliament invents to tied my hands i will strive mr speaker to get an agreement in the national interest yes war have these government who are not in a brick city any thought of we will not allow the emphatic goody 2 of the referendum to be slowly suffocated by was the one who was is and bob the opposition run from their duty to answer to those who put us here they cannot hide forever. who was there are the moment when we will come when the people will finally get their chance to deliver their verdict is to speak
8:24 am
out on how faithfully this house executed their wishes and i am determined that they will see that it was the. government there was only sorrow or are. at a point to what it was. i think we've had quite enough of the playground politics even so. was. the one saying the prime minister didn't say was that he was going to buy the lore of this country he did not say he acknowledged or accepted 3 votes that have taken place in this parliament and under his request the house is now due apparently this evening to be perogue to one of the longest progress progress geishas in history simply in order to avoid any
8:25 am
questioning of what he is doing or not doing simply to avoid discussion about yellow how much says it particularly to avoid any discussion about the proposals he has or hasn't or do or don't exist going to be put to the european union this is because this government is a disgrace on the way the prime minister operates is right is right. for her. because she is the speaker writes a lot of pictures that are coming from the british parliament not surprisingly the prime minister abbas johnson has lost his 2nd attempt to call a snap election on the 15th america in the last week or so he lost the initial attempts he put forward the motion again and now and he's debated in the chamber again and voted and he has again lost a 2nd attempt let's go live now to john the hall who's been monitoring the votes
8:26 am
outside parliament genocide no surprises then yet another defeat for the government . yes no surprise the government either said to say opposition parties had been thoroughly united in outspokenly so they were not going to support this 2nd call for an election within a week until or unless they were satisfied that no deal would be taken off the table on october the 31st they've got this nor of course that opposition m.p.'s backed and pushed through parliament last week it made it on to the statute books today requiring the government requiring the prime minister to go off to brussels and get an extension to that breaks a deadline if he isn't able to get a fresh deal on october 17th that that e.u. summit that was not deemed sufficient a guarantee because of the levels of mistrust a game that boris johnson and this government that he simply wouldn't stick to his word if an election were granted on october the 15th that he would move that date
8:27 am
forward and try and crash this country out into a no deal breaks it's an aria by default so opposition united they want to see that extension before they will vote for an election of course handing boris johnson hendy attack card which you heard him wielding there this is an opposition afraid to comply with it to meet its duty is no position and fight an election afraid that they will lose boris johnson saying simply this house cannot decide on anything it will now adjourn he hopes the opposition will take the time to reflect his government meanwhile we'll work towards a deal jeremy cole been. accusing boris johnson of dishonesty in corroding parliament saying this was simply to avoid having any scrutiny of what he's doing on brakes what his plans are for a deal and what his plans are for a no deal this government jeremy called and said he's a disgrace and in a short while proceedings will begin to prorogue parliament controversially of
8:28 am
course a decision made by the prime minister boris johnson for 5 weeks the longest program since 1930 he said. it's a standard parliamentary practice to prepare for a new session of parliament critics say e.t.s. a tactic a device to avoid scrutiny but it's going ahead boris johnson unmoved by the criticism parliament will return on october 14th jonah just before you go ok so parliament prorogue suspended then for 5 weeks what are the options now open to boris johnson because they're getting more limited by the day and they. work well the extremely limited i think is no way now that he can have any sort of an election this side of october 31st the soonest possible date might be at some point in november what all of this leaves open to question no these what will happen if there is no deal forthcoming on october 17th and 18th at that leaders'
8:29 am
summit in brussels because as i say the law is now clear it's on the statute books the prime minister must by the 19th in fact if there's no deal go and ask for an extension boris johnson has said repeatedly the seaven he said it again there this government will not seek a delay well if it isn't to be him then the question is which prime minister will do it and one of the devices being discussed everybody is speculating understand but one of the devices is that boris johnson may choose to resign jeremy corbyn would become a prime minister that the conservatives no longer have a majority he'd have to troop off to brussels and get that extension swiftly followed by a vote of confidence called by the then opposition the conservative party who would then hope and seek to fight an election pointing the finger at forest johnson and the labor party as those who would delay breaks it perhaps indefinitely while exploring johnson remains the man who would deliver it to john hall there at westminster unprecedented political times jonah thank you very much why not
8:30 am
a judge in the u.s. state of california has once again blocked the trumpet ministrations plan to prevent most migrants from seeking asylum at the border with mexico. the white house called the ruling a gift to human smugglers and traffickers and says it undermines the rule of law for decades refugees have been able to apply for asylum once they set foot on u.s. soil regardless of how they got there will she have a chance he joins us live now from washington d.c. so what more can you tell us about this judge's ruling that puts a stop on president obama's plans to prevent most people from seeking asylum at the u.s. border. well this is one of the many arguments some tussles the drug administration is having in the courts to do with immigration and various other other issues as well for that matter but in july the administration announced a new rule that if other siloam seeker passes through a 3rd country on their way to a u.s. land border that asylum seeker needs to 1st apply for asylum in that 3rd country
8:31 am
clearly targeting all the central american migrants who pass through mexico on their way to the u.s. his southern border about a week later however the same judge and issued a nationwide injunction on the rule saying as you mentioned but the law is pretty clear asylum seekers can claim asylum in the u.s. no matter how they go to the u.s. where they came from that's just part of the law part of international law for that matter the drug of ministration appealed the appeals court so the nationwide injunction could continue but only within the jurisdiction off that judge he's based in northern california his jurisdiction is california and arizona so the injunction continued in california arizona but not in new mexico texas however the appeals court said if other evidence came to light which meant it which made the judge realize that a bolster the case relational injunction then the judge should consider that the american civil liberties union went to court last week presented more evidence and now we have this ruling which reimposed is that nationwide injunction on this rule
8:32 am
now it's up to the top of ministration to act we don't know what they're doing yet but we know that already they've also supreme court to consider all of this supreme court hasn't said whether they will take up this case it is a conservative supreme court in the past they have so the president has a right to rule on issues of national security but for the moment though that nationwide injunction all of this new rule is back in place but just briefly talking about 3rd countries the mechs going to foreign ministers said that mexico will not be a say 3rd country for asylum seekers migrants seeking to get into the u.s. that's pretty significant isn't it. right i mean that's what i mean this is part of the problem mexico doesn't want to be called a safe country the u.s. is pushing for it to be served because we don't have the resources to process all these asylum claims that anyway it's pretty clear mexico isn't a safe country for asylum seekers from central america the mexican foreign minister is coming to the u.s. tomorrow tuesday here in the u.s. for more talks there have been very accommodating to the u.s. on immigration because in may trump said look if you don't crack down on central
8:33 am
american migration we're going to impose tariffs on your economy since then the mexican government's crackdown on central migration we've got some new figures just today which say that almost 60 percent of the figures for the arrests on the southern border down almost 60 percent since the height in may but it's clear that when when the foreign minister comes to the white house on tuesday he'll be pressured once again to the care of itself mexico safe a safe country for saddam seekers and so far the mexican society no that's not going to happen all right does she have a town see there in washington she had to thank you. now fighters to lay down their weapons in colombia say they remain committed to peace despite former commanders urging them to rearm the commanders accuse the government of betraying the deal which ended colombia's civil war 3 years ago al assad from pity reports now from economic zone south of the capital bogota. deep in the colombian and you down is born graffiti on the walls still tell stories of rebellion but for the fight fight
8:34 am
there's and now working hard to grow or sell their craft beer they say they would be committed to a peace process despite the announcement by 5 former 2nd week of mad that he and others would take up arms again. these divisions always happen among armies with people that decide to take a different path we're here because of our commitment and our conscience it's clear those who remain firm will come those who leave will deal with the responsibility this is one of 24 camps built all over colombia for dinner. gratian of almost 14005 since the signing of the peace deal in 2016 many have married had children built a family yet signs of their struggle to reintegrate into civilian life easy to see . their whole the slack running water sewerage and are yet to be connected to the electricity grid leaving. to rely on
8:35 am
a gas generator to operate this comparative business leads. the government has not fulfilled its obligations with the agreement they don't have the political will to implement the deal i find it mind boggling that the government of the present duke offers a $1000000.00 for information on the dissidents when it would make more sense to use that money for reintegration united nations figures show it just 10 percent of former fighters have so far received credit for farming or other development projects and the government also announced it was investing always $5000000.00 u.s. dollars to buy land for those projects but none has been bought since. delays in the implementation of the. power did by worse a big security could be 136 former fighters have been killed by other groups still operating. yet they say it's not time for despair.
8:36 am
despite all the difficulties we remain firm and peace we want to demonstrate to colombia and the world that we are keeping our word. the peace process has its problems but there is still time to save it judging by the detailed mediation shown here. italy's new coalition government has won the 1st of 2 confidence votes in the lower house it's approvals the alliance between the populist 5 star movement and the center left democratic party outside parliament right wing groups including members of 5 stars form a coalition partner demonstrated the leader pulled out of the old coalition hoping a new election would give his party a majority in the senate still needs to vote on the new government. report on the whole 12 months but he can't. from an election whatever and when you tell your people one small review and you will read. in my words we are not
8:37 am
going to back down. pro-government candidates have suffered big losses in moscow's local elections after a backlash against vladimir putin's united russia party before this latest poll of health 38 of the 45 seats and that's now down to 25 despite its candidates running as independents who has seen his approval ratings drop after a crackdown on the opposition and a slowdown of the economy. or the vote is seen as a test for national elections in 2 years' time step and has more now from moscow. well everyone here in moscow so still trying to make sense of what exactly has happened in these very well watched elections it's an interesting and complicated political scheme that has played out but indeed the russia united russia party the ruling party has never lost as many seats a p. for ever and they lost a monopoly basically they have still the majority in this moscow city duma so they
8:38 am
still can basically have their influence heard but they have to deal with a lot of forces at the moment not the actual real in the planet opposition because they were simply banned from running in the 1st place but the communist party has a grown here is significantly becoming it has never been elected serious opposition very much opposing the ruling party but it will mean that is more diversity in this in this moscow city duma but what it means even more is that this is a signal that despite this crackdown by the government on the opposition many people have been arrested they have been jailed for longer sentences they have been beaten up but still that they have made this voice heard through this so-called smart vote which was called for by his opposition a figure alexy now fairly and this has basically been successful looking adult here in moscow this means that the opposition is a force to be reckoned with and that's as some people have described it some cracks
8:39 am

8:41 am
both in hebrew and in english for the hebrew audience his domestic audience the iranian issue is the number one issue in terms of security the message that netanyahu typically sends we are a week away from the israeli election and so iran security is very high on his agenda and in english to the wider world the message is coming at a time when president trump who pulled out of the iran nuclear deal shortly after benjamin netanyahu statements on iran's nuclear archives last year it's a time when president trump himself has been raising the prospects of having talks with the iranian president rouhani and that is something that is being seen here in israel as a real threat to netanyahu zentai a policy of pressuring the united states to sanction iran pull out of the deal and get wider global. pressure on iran and so once again he seems to be communicating

8:49 am
a faster way out insurgency hundreds of thousands of people to flee from their homes. under investigation again u.s. states launch an anti trust probe against google accusing it of unfair practices. echoing his sect your state president says talks of the taliban are off but he's still considering a troop drawdown in afghanistan. britain's brigs a crisis remains in deadlock after parliament again so our prime minister barak's johnson's calls for a general election it's been a tumultuous day for the government and this was johnson's latest attempt to break a stalemate triggered by legislation which makes a no deal briggs it illegal but earlier m.p.'s also voted to force the government to publish his assessment of how a no deal brags it would affect the country they also want private communications on the decision to suspend parliament to be made public and those votes are the last significant move that parliament will make for almost 5 weeks against the will
8:50 am
of the house of commons is being suspended critics say this is johnson's tactic to stop more parliamentary interference in his plans well john hall has been monitoring the parliamentary debate we'll be speaking to him in just a minute but 1st this report from andrew symonds. the ice of the rights $293.00 notice the length $46.00 the majority does not satisfy the requirements of the fixed parliaments for the purpose of engendering. but some see it has been expected but that doesn't lessen the damage this vote is doing to boris johnson's government on the attack ahead of the vote he was preparing for defeat in his 2nd attempt to call a snap election if you really want to deny a brick seat beyond october 31st which is what you seem to want to do then vote for an election and let people decide the people decide if they want to deny oh
8:51 am
not a rowdy parliament hours away from being pro does suspension that will last 5 weeks the leader of the opposition hitting back they are eager for an election but as keen as we are we are not prepared to risk inflicting that he's asked out for you know details on our communities our jobs our services or indeed our rights. are another defeat for the government with an order to reveal all private messages between it's a vices about holders to prorogue parliament also assessments of the damage and no deal bricks it will cools and that vote was only the side show on a grey monday in westminster with more political drama playing out at every turn johnson had been in dublin trying to talk up the prospects of a brics a deal but there was
8:52 am
a flat response from his irish counterpart lee of rob who said it will be a good q.b. and asked to get a deal screwed at this stage the focus here is on the back story the insurance policy to avoid a hot u.k. e.u. border between northern ireland and on and johnson has suggestions on alternatives but there are no prospects of an agreement like now. i want to get a deal like you i've looked carefully at no deal i've assessed it's consequence is both for our country and and yours and yes of course we could do it the u.k. could certainly get through it but be in no doubt that outcome would be a failure of state craft which we would all be responsible to backstop continues to be a critical component of the trial agreements unless and until alternatives are found . but we are open to alternatives but they must be realistic ones legally binding
8:53 am
and workable and we haven't received such a pulse as to date with the suspension of parliament due late on monday night the opposition here has done all it can in the time available to prevent it there's no doubt an election is coming but short of breaking the law or actually getting a deal johnson doesn't look like going to the polls in the time frame he wants andrew simmons. westminster. joins us live now from outside the british parliament at westminster jonah so no surprises that the government wasn't expected to win this vote anyway. you. know they weren't no one was expecting them to win the opposition parties have been very clear they weren't going to support an election until no deal being taken off the table on october 31st not just with the passing of that opposition led legislation requiring the government to seek an extension but with the implementation of the
8:54 am
legislation they want boris johnson to go off to brussels and get an extension if he can't get a deal on october the 17th and only then will they accept a call for an election as we speak we are minutes away now from the so-called projection in front of specialists the suspension of parliament at boris johnson's bears very controversial this we're waiting for the ceremony to take place the leader of the house of lords the speaker will read a statement on behalf of the queen the house of commons will then be called in to listen to a list of all the legislation passed in the previous session and then the parliament will be sent away for 5 weeks coming back on october the 14th on the timeline that salute me as short now by boris johnson's decisions here there's very little else that can be done to give him the election that he wants in the time timeframe that he can get it we're probably looking at a date sometime in no. but all sorts of machinations to come
8:55 am
a real showdown set for the 2nd half of october because he refuses to grab a this law and go and get the extension that he's required to get so john what do you know the answer to that yet but they're bound to come up with one interesting 5 weeks interesting point jonah what are the options now open to bars dancing because they seem pretty limited. i think their extreme limited use a very what up to open divorce junction i mean it's a case now of them trying to come up with options to try and come up with wheezes to try and contrive some way of avoiding this one suggestion is that he may decide to resign. rather than ask for that extension jeremy colvin would become prime minister and have to do it and then boris johnson would call an immediate voter confidence and try and force an election painting corbin is the man who would seek to delay it there are all sorts of legal suggestions they might add paperwork to the request suggesting the government doesn't actually want this extension and hope
8:56 am
the e.u. would turn it down lawyers have poured cold water on that but the resignation suggestion is a massively high stakes gamble it is very hard to see how boris johnson at this point can fail or avoid to comply with this legislation all right agenda while they're at westminster jonah thank you. the un says violence and but he has forced nearly 300000 people to leave their homes 2 separate attacks or 29 people killed and it's highlighting a growing security problem for the west african nation some of the violence is along religious lines many blame the unrest on groups of cross the border from northern mali. a report for the government has issued a statement confirming before incidentally and the bad along the road heading to the border with my in one of the attack happened in an area where we were filming just a few days ago and it's quite so real because the landmine was planted in baghdad.

a party that is simply not used to losing and has been having a monopoly position here in the city duma for such a long time and has been in power in russia for such a long time on the other hand it doesn't mean that now it isn't in the band and opposition in the city duma because they were simply banned from running in these elections and the opposition has then called for the so-called smart fold voting for anyone basically who can beat united russia and this has now resulted in in the wind for the communist party who has never been a real opposition party so it's not likely to change much of the policies but it does give a strong signal to president putin and the ruling party that their power base is kind of shaky right now and that the opposition can't be ignored and crushed that easily any more step fights and al-jazeera inside story. i. already let's bring in our panel joining us from
9:24 am
moscow victor or gave it a lead expert at the moscow based think tank center for actual politics from kiev on skype ilya. founder of the political movement left front and former member of parliament from 2007 to 2016 and from london and my fear of a visiting senior research fellow at king's college london welcome to the program and i want to start with you these elections and the outcome how significant is this development. they are significant foremost because this is the 1st time since the ninety's figures associated with sort of liberal democratic opposition had some kind of electoral success but it is not significant in terms of political party development because they still don't have any kind of organized vehicle to press their the months but they quiet a platform there quiet voice they for the 1st time showed that they are electable
9:25 am
but the balance of power is clearly not in their favor also we should not extrapolate what has happened in moscow told the rest of the country which lives in quite different universe victor is this a wake up call for vladimir putin and if so how big of a wakeup call is it. well of course it's a wake up call for the russian political system. as correctly pointed out. actually the early to thousands liberal parties have not been represented in the state duma and the is also the elections of the moscow city council the so-called moscow city duma. went a bit differently from what the. program in the united russia party. had expected or. ones that show that there is a possibility of growing possibility here
9:26 am
a growing sense that in 2021 in the upcoming elections to the russian duma the russian parliament there could possibly again be liberal members of parliament representatives of liberal party. included so so these. elections that have just just and that they are showing a growing frustration on the part of voters and not just in moscow i would remind you that in the far east for example in about a ski june the liberal democratic party russia which is one the elementary parties had gained significant significantly over the united russia party and they in fact in the election to the moscow city council a number of united russia members had. shown themselves to be a sort of title independent so they ran as independents instead of united russia
9:27 am
members of parliament because they thought that the party affiliation might negatively impact their. chances so it is possible that in the next months think the elections to the state duma. united russia could possibly morph into something. a different political that could be significant changes to united russia there could be. more flexibility shown on the part of the kremlin and possibly there could be more alliances between parliamentary factions with united russia in the coming months just how powerful is the city do my we're talking about this specific election and also how effective can the opposition be now. you see if we are talking about always busy call wait. very much it's because of what have just happened firstly unite with russia and they were most brands in
9:28 am
light of russia they were almost in the as an independent but nevertheless where understand that the united russia they still control the majority of this. they can form a 60 percent of the seats just before they will control a 100 percent of the seats knowledge 60 so it's a significant change but still they control the majority but the other most. rule is the really strange institutional most always at the same time a c.c.m. the regional affordance of the russian constitution and that's why the governing instruments even in the city there extremely limited and they're very much controlled by the city council by the mayor sources that's why this meaning has a lot of symbolic. because we will see independence through the in the pound them into the not so much of them but. into those but we will not see any changes
9:29 am
in terms of political structure of the country and how did the kremlin backed candidates do in the rest of the country basically said have done a thing you know well because. the acting governors those governments who have been in power for a long time they all have been elected so nobody has been seriously challenged we do not even have the 2nd round because they were expect a show that they will be a more come to station them in some. of federal regions we will have for the 2nd round of government go but not for elections with them even have that that's where the real power lies about the level which really matter for the citizen making structure yes we have seen united russia being a little bit sheepish like in mosco. pretty much.
9:30 am
appreciating it and accepting that it's not really doing very well with the electorate but we also have to say that the by and large people are not very active all the presidential elections matter and then you have turnout real turnout in moscow sit here we have less than 22 percent in the rest of the well in the country overall 41 percent voted so it shows that it's not something which people feel can actually change their life which is tremendously relevant but overall the authorities have enough argument to be able to claim that they have one of the selections opposition of the same time can also claim that they have made significant gains so both sides sort of have legitime of the grounds to be
9:31 am
optimistic and satisfied with the outcomes is is what happened in moscow the outcome is it the outcome of of a strategy by opposition who called on people to vote strategically or is this simply a reflection of the reality on the ground and more of a referendum on putin and united russia when it comes to the results in moscow. you know i think in some objective situation way more than anything else. you see this richness that which in this really losing its grounds he spotty even more so. will raising sleep for the current approval rating is around and he's for united russia 25 percent so we were some of that and that was actually the reason why was not the lines that russia was money late in the into the foremost sita council but the around this and but at the at the other peoples who don't see that or much
9:32 am
here we actually use your. liberal forces we would be more correct to run them as you liberal forces that must be. russia and even the most cool we are the biggest. or place to tell of get. the majority of the humans with the free elections. those always go forces which can present the interest of their you either leftist and the majority or those. tend to the school . the elections and last. month the related by the want to many people say left them with the real additional of their right look the real opposition but nevertheless that's what people would like to vote for and there is no such organized tour opposition in the country victor as you heard elite
9:33 am
speak very talk about united russia becoming more and more unpopular what about putin. well formally put is not out of united russia he is not a member of the party and so if the party eventually has to morph into a somewhat different political movement or if it has for political purposes to form coalitions with other parliamentary parties in order to keep the political system. along the same course that will not significantly affect his future or his political capital that he has built however the general frustration on the part of the population with with the pension reform with a number of other issues with economic issues that have popped up. months and years of course they are going to negatively affect the electoral chances of united
9:34 am
russia or other parliamentary parties possibly in the future and we see means to be seen how that is going to be dealt with what the more flexibility the kremlin shows in itself policy the more stable the situation is i would also i also would like to note that the regional elections many of the governors that were just elected. that were just elected them yesterday were actual elected for the 1st time whether it's arctic sea. origin and. in the far east. and you'll be appointed by putin because the kremlin actually keeps tabs on the governors that show low ratings and when the governor is in the low rating category for a long time usually the governor of that region gets sacked very quickly and gets
9:35 am
replaced by another governor and we have seen this in the number and the significant number of regions in the last. oh months and that most of these go there's one very easily the exception would probably be your next on the to be able off in st petersburg who had the more difficult and mansion and. one of the by his chum the challenger is a filmmaker preferred to get out of the election to make it in a way this made his election easier and the results are still being counted but overall i would agree with. him that with the government given dorio elections you know the russia short very good results of this point and it looked like you were nodding to some of what victor was saying did you want to add something. else i would like to the world out what is it i'm a couple
9:36 am
a poll that most well a lot actually of the results because we're there 3 in the now what this newly elected deputies are going to do with their power but that the city authorities managed to create such a big issue out of the complaint and burning candle and having pushback from the street and provoking people or more protest action which they otherwise would have taken further the capacity of the authorities to panic and see the problem where there is really not much of a nice year that some more dangerous thing that that we have seen pretty tame elections in moscow fairly orderly but we had. a really of that it will apply a big come pain before and totally disproportionate security response fell tells us more us about how the us thought it is really feel and what their confidence level is like. analysts have said that the kremlin was reluctant to
9:37 am
allow alexina vollies the prominent opposition politician of course to a. allow his allies a way to gain more power ahead of far more significant parliamentary polls that will happen in 2021 with the loss of these seats in moscow what does that mean for the opposition going forward into the 2021 elections. well in most elections there were several different position groups that were quite interesting a place that was a group associated with them all if you correct with them that was. the most key. other basically with criminal law they allowed on the richest. old time political left her own father to. sure originates in the you know playing to the
9:38 am
surface of the most economists what do you mean keep to take the ones who were seats in. all the other tens of those that we're right now cheer as the come thing that the opposition into almost all them were nominated busy by the clintons and i wouldn't say that i was seeing the holiday or. the support of the woman this was just what they saw as the lesser evil. white the hole in their support for those guys but they actually both think that being the parliament they behave like. really opposition leaders must be a mighty russia the psychological load the united russia thinks with the victor vladimir putin's presidential term ends in 2024 i mean there are
9:39 am
constitutional term limits in russia but there are many in russia who believe that he will find a way or is looking for a way to hold on to power beyond that either by a constitutional amendment or by perhaps the creation of a special position in parliament what do you think is that something we could see happen. putin is definitely not looking to remain in his position as president of russia after 2024 but there may be a role for him in the russian political system and remains to be seen what the russian political system is going to look like in 2024 that's a long time 5 years from now considering the fluctuations that we have been seeing in the recent. times in the russian political sphere in the russian political political arena much can still happen before then and the way that that order the
9:40 am
new political order. is going to we're going to see that happen in the next few years a lot of that is going to have to do with how the actions of 2021 states duma the parliamentary elections in russia turn out that's definitely going to have an impact and it's still there is still a long time to go i would also there's also a name that has not been mentioned. here yet. in connection to the elections that have just happened and that's the name of the mayor of moscow he said daniel who is in a way a loser in this election cycle because much of the blame for what's happened with united russia and its campaign for the moscow city council lies with the moscow city electoral commission the. decisions that negatively impacted on one
9:41 am
united russia which caused disenfranchisement feelings of disenfranchisement on the part of a significant portion of the moscow voters. and so the kremlin. is well aware of what happened with the moscow city election commission now. and the political ambitions of mr. gagnon could very well be curtailed as a result of this and there were many protests in moscow this past summer because of the discontent that opposition politicians looking to get on the ballot were disqualified and were able to run in the election of course there was anger at how the authorities dealt with those protests did that feed in from your vantage point into the results of the election to some extent a yes a because of those people who are would have voted for this kind of candidates young
9:42 am
people perhaps would not have gone to the polls if they did have that kind of stimulus but we have to also say that the elections are left in many more specific areas of those completely cold hearted we have very low turnout just over 21 percent. or was i think quite significant that the pros us what not that much opposed to whether candidates were a just of the north but what group what made people who redeploy in this proportional security response when people have been taken from the streets which have really nothing to do with the whole thing so that created more anger when meant all the street and rather than the initial action have equity what has been said before. we don't really know what putin really thinks but it is a very interesting topic toure speculate about the mysterious soul of the russian
9:43 am
press but all the most serious note i would say that the election's over into russian parliament they doma would barely post this whether there will peer conditions for proper political party development free and fair are whether there will be some kind of fresh blood being allowed in whether there will be new or ways going about politics that will be a kind of the albatross of things to come considering the result of the election thus far do you believe that going forward when and or if there are further protests that the authorities will deal with them in a different manner. well i don't see the reason for the process this particular moment because those forces they were focusing on. the selection of the elections are over i am absolutely sure that fortunately mr which of the something else in
9:44 am
the not so distant future which would promote a law that we 1st but this we are most likely is over but i think that we really need to. focus on those elections we see this. hour this regime is not useable. it is beatable and that's probably the most positive outcome we saw in moscow we can win but we need to. create a strategy for the duma elections right now we will see with a lot of the political force for which we can vote for viktor we only have about one minute left someone ask you to please be quick with your answer how much leverage from your point of view does the opposition have now well at this point the opposition is tempting at least to claim victory in
9:45 am
a difficult political landscape that it is working with and. to gain as my shall leverage as possible from this for the upcoming state duma elections in 2021 and that will be the next up by the next election cycle a very important moment before before 2024. all right we've run out of time so thanks to all our guests victor oliva. and. and thank you too for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting our website 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 join the conversation on twitter our handle is at a.j. . and the whole team by for now.
