12:00 am
around 2 and a half 1000000 people fighting in the region has subsided over the past 4 years but the armed groups are still there is still active and skirmishes continue to pop up reaching peace is a priority for this new transitional government largely because it's a key condition for getting sudan removed from the u.s. sponsors of terrorism this. morgan in juba with more it's the sudanese prime minister's 1st foreign visit since he was appointed last month and it's scheduled to last for 2 days now the prime minister will be meeting with the head of state of south sudan salva kiir mayardit who is also at the moment the mediator off the peace talks between the sudanese government and the armed group called the sudanese revolutionary front and the sudan people's liberation movement north the prime minister is also scheduled to meet with the heads of these armed groups because he says that when he was appointed he made a pledge that his transitional government will prioritize peace over anything else and will try to achieve it within the 1st 6 months of the 39 months transitional period the prime minister has also said that sudan will be an open space and will
12:01 am
build its foreign relations based on common interests and interests between south sudan and sudan 2 countries that will want one go very deep to share a mutual economic interest with south sudan taking with it 75 percent of sudan's oil facilities when the seceded in 2011 and the economy of the 2 countries is these on that pumping of oil and the export of those oil with paying sudan oil fields which supports the economies of the 2 countries so it looks like along with trying to make peace with the armed groups the south sudanese president and the sudanese prime minister who's visiting will be talking about bilateral relations for the interest of the 2 countries. with us now senior lecturer at kiel university a regular contributor with us on al-jazeera and good to talk to you again you know i i read 2 stories there one was about the protests in sudan about the judicial system about the remnants of the bashir regime and the 2nd one is about the you know huge objective of finding peace in sudan as well seems to me there's
12:02 am
a lot on the plate of this this new ruling council. absolutely and this is a challenge that every single transitional to confront one point or another in sudan is a country that has been handed out or italian system for such a long period of time way to institutions including institutions like justice outfield by loyalists to this tabish went would have to confront that problem so it is an issue that is i think going to. challenge the current government because it's simply not possible to apologise all the institutions from those who are you know have been vague and have some understanding of how the system works some institutional memory you cannot replace all those individuals overnight that i was there are challenges there but the same time i think it's only right that people
12:03 am
are demanding that those mr 2 shoes are properly cleaned up and field by individuals that are independent and can actually you know deliver for the kind of change that people have been have been demanding so those are clearly challenges that will continue i think to to be in the front way that is this government or any other government we're just looking at pictures there of the prime minister in juba as i said trying to deal with the wider issue of peace in sudan i mean how does a transitional government and an interim government go about dealing with something like that when the grievances go back to the early 2000. i think these are highly complex but also very much related problems the problems that we have in the brunei region in south kordofan in darfur are problems that have a much intertwined with the problem of storytelling and some that have been there
12:04 am
in sudan for a very long time. but the prime minister when he was sworn in played to that ensuring peace and stability is he's primary policy goal and i think that is absolutely crucial that the transitional government to dial that if they were to have any chance of stablish a peaceful democratic country and i think his visit to south sudan today is a very important signal or an indication that he's actually committed to the process but i think most importantly even be you want the question of peace and stability south sudan is a very important partner for sudan both economically and politically just yesterday . the opposition forces and the transitional government signed a peace deal in juba with the help of south sudan's president south sudan also needs to done for its own internal problems konami the 2 countries are very much
12:05 am
connected to one another because sudan receives a huge sum of money from solace or done for the oil infrastructure that uses so those $2.00 countries are very much connected is so many ways and there is a lot i think that would be discussed over the course of these 2 days interesting stuff joining us from kill university always a pleasure thank you. scientists doctors and political leaders have all met in brussels at a global vaccination summit this is taking place as countries around the world face up brakes of preventable diseases due to a lack of adequate vaccination or a bad man he reports. measles mumps rubella and many other real misses can all be prevented by quick japanese. health officials say it saves the lives of up to $3000000.00 people pay a year but they also say the work is being threatened by a growing anti vaccination campaign now scientists and doctors of mess in brussels
12:06 am
to fight back it is unacceptable in the 21st century our children are dying from diseases that should not exist we have to put an end to this intolerable situation it's incumbent on each and every one of us. smallpox is no more thanks to vaccines . polio has been pushed to the brink of eradication thanks to vaccines. once feared this is like. measles and meningitis and now easily prevented the times to vaccines the world health organization is pointing to what it calls the myths about that scene's they include diseases disappearing before vaccines were introduced medical professionals say that scenes of had a significant impact and to the criticism of most people who get diseases be vaccinated w.h.o. says most are 85 to 95 percent effective but only recently have we seen
12:07 am
a mass vaccination movement and it's probably to do with the social media that's become so important at the moment in the way that people get their their news and we have something which is spreading very rapidly which is out of control this anti vaccination campaign group in washington d.c. says the freedom to decide to vaccinate is a human right when you take away a person's freedom and medical choice. mandating vaccines for education that is coed coersion back in brussels for local brennan is seeking to continue the advocacy work his sister did before she died of suffocation cancer the boys want to change everything. to imagine this year from cervical cancer cancer that is almost entirely. she's 26 years old and
12:08 am
she dedicated the last months of my life to raising awareness of the importance of the nation she did it because if she had behaved like they would not be intimidated she would be with us i was diagnosed their counsel says his sister receive support but also abuse when she tried to convince women to take the h.p.v. vaccination and he says it's fear based on mistrust and misinformation that this summit seeks to end you're about among the al-jazeera. pieces animals with us now executive director from the world health organization he's at that vaccine summit in brussels thank you for your time century of very busy i want to ok let's take an example let's just say maisons for example this year united states ukraine new zealand they have been outbreaks there how frustrating is that i guess for people like yourself and people at the summit that simple presentable to things like that is having outbreaks in the developed world.
12:09 am
well it's nothing short of tragic that we have deaths from maize was occurring in the 21st century in fact for the last year we have data there are more than $100000.00 deaths due to measles alone around the world and as you said even though the majority of these deaths are in poor countries we're now seeing how it breaks in european countries in the u.s. in many places in the world including new zealand most recently so it is tragic because it's so preventable. so what do you do because i mean if we just take the example of the woman who was in our report just then she's talking more about the issue of choice and it seems like that sort of argument that's you possibly not going to make a difference with people who feel that way when it's just about choice. well there's 2 major reasons why we still around the world have around 20000000
12:10 am
under immunized children a year and one has actually very little to do with vaccine misinformation it's to do with the fact that that poor children around the world especially if they displaced or in urban poor or in remote rural areas is around 20000000 kids that just simply don't have access and availability of vaccines and they happen to live predominately in countries affected by conflict so they are the central african republic the somali is the south sudan's the new gerrard's the iraq's the yemen's the syria is the haiti's their countries and that's the the really major reason why children under immunized today there is this is a worrying trend particularly in western countries more so than in poor countries and we think that's probably because people haven't seen the devastating impact of vaccine preventable diseases directly in the richest countries where there is this misinformation what do you do about it where you start with not giving people false information and that's really what we're calling for by working with facebook and interests and instagram to say take the false information off where there's not
12:11 am
scientific facts take that away and then give people a real choice but a well informed choice by showing them really what the evidence of the dating is and you're right ultimately it's up to parents but that should be an informed choice how's it going with the social media companies i mean i'm interested in that because we heard again people on a report saying that this was a big pos in the in the spirit of what they say is misinformation how is it actually going with trying to remove that misinformation. and in fact we've seen a tremendous. movement from the from the social media company so we've just announced partnerships in the last week with pinterest facebook instagram where they're really looking at their them so that when people search up vaccines that they get they are automatically taken 1st. and foremost to evidence based sites with a scientific information the web site center for disease control in the u.s.
12:12 am
for example but beyond that they're also looking into really. how some of these groups have used information and data tracking systems to try and get information to the right. demographic groups so they really want to avoid people getting slanted information biased information so they can make a true well informed choice so we'll be working with them. to make sure that people get access to a full range of views and importantly they can distinguish what's really evidence and science and fact from opinion. on the internet we see that not just in relationship to vaccines but it's increasingly hard for people to distinguish what's a fact what science was just someone's opinion. of the world health organization and brussels good to talk to you thank you. thanks. the. president robert mugabe will lie in state at
12:13 am
a stadium in harare that is where he took the lead in nearly 4 decades ago to be buried on sunday but there are ongoing discussions between his government and his family about exactly where he will be laid to rest. from. he is now lying in state at. because there's been so much can he. be buried the program just keeps on change the latest update. is that they're writing all $98.00 here to participate in that way to be able to do the national mourning in the capital a liberal gave they go to get it mainly. they use but it goes to. a people they will call these bodies they could like one time right now they're not sure where you're going to be replace it and. make a great wife. a crime plan the burial sally neighbor that will also be meeting
12:14 am
all day the government issued a statement to the public not to believe everything they hear in social media the that they are talking to them about being happy trying to find out where and when they will be buried it but emotions are. deep here inside the stadium it's a jovial mood the people you see walking there they've just. got to see him one last time they got to take a bite if they feel a break to get language is not out the baby neighborhood. housing some people don't have. people that have actually running water people are just trying to do a common thing in the fall we need a these just. keep away from our. daily lives in the country right down. there right now is the life. of the mother least 50 people have been
12:15 am
killed in the train derailed in democratic republic of congo's southeastern province it's. a government minister says the attack of the accident happened around 3 am local time in the town of my buddy. 4 afghan soldiers have been killed in a suicide bombing near an army base in kabul the afghan minister of defense confirmed the attack 3 other soldiers injured and is the taliban which has claimed responsibility tony berkley with more from kabul the attack happened on thursday afternoon at the afghan army special forces base at rish gore 25 kilometers west of kabul a suicide bomber drove a van packed with explosives to the main gates and detonated them initially killing 4 soldiers and wounding 3 others the taliban claim responsibility is the 1st major attack that the taliban has carried out near the capital since president trump canceled the peace talks with the taliban on the tweet the taliban at that time
12:16 am
were threatened that the americans would suffer more and it was fear that was going to be some kind of violent backlash from the taliban because of those talks kept being cancelled we only had one other rocket fired from long range into the capital that landed somewhere near the american embassy but there were no casualties and no serious damage but there was apprehension here and concern the fact that there hasn't been any major attacks within the city is being taken as a good sign and perhaps a sign that the taliban leadership is still confused about what to do whether they want to carry on an escalation of this conflict or they want to get back to the negotiating table the fighting is still carrying on all around the country the americans are putting incredible pressure on the taliban and we are told the aerial campaign in one period a week ago they say killed 1000 taliban fighters and the afghan army is claiming successes in various places and saying that some taliban fighters are giving themselves up so there is still a big war going on away from the police negotiating table. still ahead view on this

12:20 am
here on the news out here at al-jazeera and these are all top stories belfast's high court has thrown out a case claiming the brags that strategy of boris johnson's government jeopardizes the 998 northern ireland peace accords the u.s. house committee voted to adopt a resolution intended to intensify its impeachment of us to go to president on the trump measure allows the panel to define the rules of an impeachment probe including calling witnesses committee did vote along party lines and the body of former zimbabwean president robert mugabe is lying in state of the stadium and out on a same place he took both as a leader nearly 4 decades ago and finally. in place though is still unknown as his family and his government are at odds over where he should be back. more now on our
12:21 am
top story those court rulings on briggs and prime minister barak johnson as i said did win a reprieve from northern ireland's top court but the legal fight is far from over. m.p.'s have been forced into recess but for boris johnson the battle has shifted to the courts judges in northern ireland have joined those in england in declining to rule the prohibition of parliament illegal but scottish judges on wednesday said johnson's advice to the queen to suspend parliament had been unlawful and motivated by a desire to muzzle parliament did you lie to the queen when you advised her to provoke to suspend parliament absolutely not. and indeed i say that the high court in england plainly agrees with us but the supremes have to opposition m.p.'s meanwhile a clamoring to return to work after succeeding in forcing the government to release
12:22 am
its internal operation yellow hammer report it contains worst case scenario predictions for a no deal breaks it clogged up ports fresh food and medicine shortages price rises and civil unrest but of course no house of commons to scrutinise its findings that's why you know that's why i was so angry. because i should be in parliament at the moment with the ability to interrogate the prime minister and ministers. now approach we can do that and the prime minister again this is a worst case scenario which civil servants obviously have to prepare for but in the last few months particularly in the 50 days since i've been prime minister we'd be massively accelerating our preparation and boris johnson says no deal breaks it is not his desired outcome he says he's doing everything he can to reach a new deal with the european union at an october leaders' summit just a few days after parliament is due to return no mention of the new law requiring
12:23 am
johnson to seek a break city extension if no new deal emerges nor any detail on water new deal may look like and again no parliament so ask any questions it's all pretty bewildering when viewed from brussels i think that is all planning to take the u.k. out of the european union without any deal but at the same time being in a position to blame the european union for inflexibility all eyes on the supreme court next week then with the government in the meantime giving its very best impression of being entirely unmoved jonah how al-jazeera london. now mexico says it disagrees with a recent u.s. supreme court decision that's ruled in favor of donald trump's latest effort to restrict immigration the court a lot of ban on nearly all asylum applications at the mexico border to go into effect people will now have to seek asylum in the 1st safe country they travel through which effectively block's most applications it's here is. joining us now
12:24 am
from mexico city with more on this matter what's the official response been on this one. mexican authorities have maintain the same line that they have since this policy was 1st suggested or unveiled back in june but we did hear on the news from the supreme court ruling from mexican foreign minister marcello butt out who said quote this is you this is a u.s. issue and obviously we don't agree with it we have a different policy we also heard from mexico president and this one little bit over the road who said that he had an excellent conversation with president trump over the phone but what must be irking leadership within the mexican government is constantly since the beginning of the year having to adapt to pressures from the united states to do more to curb back migration as well as as changes in u.s. national policy that have direct impacts here in mexico so how will this change
12:25 am
then men while in asylum policy actually affect mexicans and mexico as a country. absolutely if mexico has already been faced with pressures from the united states are constantly having to adapt to changes of policy or else in some cases at least one case having to face the threat of terror of spy the united states on exports leaving leaving mexico bound for the united states and mexico has been successful in this regard showing a reduction in migration numbers of upwards of 50 percent migration heading toward the united states but the biggest impact of this policy change will be felt by the migrants themselves of majority of whom are coming in from central america countries like honduras el salvador and guatemala but also other countries in south america and africa as well as asia and the potential for thousands of asylum applicants who will be ineligible to apply for asylum in the united states and the big concern here in mexico is whether or not the country has the resources to
12:26 am
handle this potential surge in asylum applicants in mexico thank you manuel robb followed in mexico city. google has agreed to pay another half a $1000000000.00 in taxes 2 fronts a payment which ends a 4 year investigation into the us tech giant his natasha butler in paris to talk more about this and how should define agreed to pay because generally google wouldn't part with half a $1000000000.00 just like that. yes but it does seem that the company has agreed to do this and the background to this story is that 4 years ago french investigators started looking into whether or not to google was in fact evaluating paying enough tax in france investigation refocused on whether google was properly declaring its activities in france to the french state now google actually has its european headquarters in dublin in ireland it is a low tax economy and what the company does is it tends to declare most of its
12:27 am
sales activities in ireland in that way manages to avoid paying as much tax as it could do in other european countries and this is something that it's basically benefited from an international tax loophole where french financial prosecutor has found that to be unfair it has put this very large fine on google taking the total stessel settlement the google pay to the french state up to a 1000000000 dollars and all the is part of a campaign by emanuel marco even though this particular case predates him at all michael's presidency the french president's been very adamant that these these social media giants these are digital companies that have activities around the world are using these sorts of tax loopholes to avoid tax and he wants a new international tax law to take that into account to stop this kind of tax evasion if you want to put it in that way and in fact frank presents
12:28 am
a model mark was also slapped a digital tax on these major companies google amazon of facebook he put data on those companies back in july because he says that those companies need to pay more tax in the countries in which they have operations but the current tax rules don't take into account this new globalized world that we all live in ok thank you for that update natasha butler in pam's. floodings left at least 57 people dead in months of heavy rain is destroyed homes and businesses in the west african state tens of thousands of people have been displaced and the country is still recovering from damage caused by floods last year. has more. entire streets in egypt's capital niamey are submerged heavy rain and floods proved too much for retaining walls along the river across the country more than $12000.00 homes have been destroyed those who refused to leave save what they can. sandbags or fail
12:29 am
to stop more water from flooding homes. a neighborhood watch keeps track of the river levels 24 hours a day but it will give $100.00 or 4 a season to people who lived along the river to prepare for the floods that many of us didn't know where we could go. more than 130000 people have been affected by the floods since june many displaced families are now living in schools but it's unclear how long they'll be allowed to stay they worry they won't have a home to go back to. be some homes were flooded but haven't crumbled yet and one day about 250 houses are totally demolished if the rain keeps coming it will continue to destroy. crops have been destroyed and infrastructure damaged but the government says it can only offer a limited support while interiors are putting up tents for the displaced it's not meant as a long term solution for those who've lost everything it's a lifeline. to some love. we're here to help build the tents and shelters for the
12:30 am
victims of the flood these are people who had to flee the banks of the river so we just want to help our community. the country was already facing a crisis extreme weather has caused a food shortage in recent years violence linked to boko haram has forced many from their homes more than 2000000 people are in need of humanitarian aid. the government says the worst of the rain is over but the threat to his population remains both from flooding and the ever present risk of a cholera outbreak. so the young al jazeera during more than 4 years of war in yemen fishermen have risked their lives to nets and to bring home their catch many have not survived becoming victims of attacks by the saudi coalition just fighting the hooty rebels this story now from. the port of the data . is at the port of poti down yemen every day to watch the

12:37 am
110 light years away from our planet there is a super earth a world where life could exist outside of our solar system. 18 b. was discovered in 2015 astronomers use data gathered from the hubble telescope to analyze light filtered through the planet's atmosphere they found water vapor in helium the eggs the planet also orbits at sun's habitable zone meaning that temperatures are stable and favorable to host life forms this planet is potentially habitable so we're talking about a planet that on paper based on calculations is able to post liquid water right now we all can only calculate temperatures for these plants k. to 18 b.'s the only one that we go one step further we know that there is water not the spirit but to go to to hubby that will planets that would require many many advances and many more observe ations. researchers at university college london
12:38 am
believe that other molecules found on earth like nitrogen and me saying are also present in the out misfire the exoplanet may have the conditions to support life but it's not another version of the earth it's twice as big as a smaller sun and thus far more dense and scientists currently don't have the technology to physically reach the planets or analyze its surface to determine if life actually exists there. 18 b. is one of thousands of exoplanets but being trillions of kilometers away it's unlikely humans will ever be able to reach them even though this is very exciting discovery we should back a little bit because it's just it indications that something that we know is vital for life as we understand it. is presence of this world is but whether that indicates that there is life there is another question entirely we know the more we learn about the cosmos the more we realize that perhaps the earth has
12:39 am
a singular combination of characteristics that would be very clear that there should be other worlds out there like earth but at the moments we have discovered the new more powerful telescopes are expected to be launched over the next few years they'll be able to provide deeper and more accurate analysis of 18 b. and other exoplanets allowing astronomers to discover their composition and learn more about the evolution of worlds outside of our solar system and stansell al-jazeera london.
