10:51 pm
started posting videos on you tube and facebook and early september he leads to see in his military wasted millions of dollars of public money and palaces and hotels he said he knew because he built them i wonder why spend a huge amount of money building these houses i never understood his decision the problem was that these wife didn't want to sleep in the same home when mubarak's wife stayed taken low level corruption to a new label i built 5 villas for theses a palace for the president and a military camp in cairo. the clip the one week ago speaking at a youth summit in cairo president says he did not directly address the accusations of corruption against him and his army but he did say this. how much do you think a day of operations in sinai costs we don't talk about this then we see someone carrying to come out and defame the army someone who wants to shock you panic you
10:52 pm
someone who dares to try to disparage the great value of our great army when cici little military coup of president mohammed morsi in 2013 he outlawed all an authorized protests a government crackdown followed with tens of thousands of egyptians arrested including journalists like al jazeera is own mahmoud hussein who is now being imprisoned more than $1000.00 days egyptian government crushed any protest ruthlessly sort of like a people are prepared to take to the streets tonight i think speaks to the enormous frustration the enormous anger that ordinary egyptians to work. from an egyptian whistleblower posting you tube videos the internet has galvanized egyptians frustrations and now move to the streets ballasts. well so far things have been pretty quiet in egypt today and some of the saw this
10:53 pm
is people have responded to online calls for demonstrations against government corruption online video shows a small crowd protesting in port saïd urging the president to step down. well you may remember is back into the 11 the activists on the streets of egypt sought to change the course of the country's history the january 25th revolution forced longtime leader hosni mubarak to step down in the fall of mubarak paved the way for the muslim brotherhoods mohamed morsi to become egypt's 1st democratically elected president in 22 hours. but a year later mass protests took place against morsi and he was overthrown in a military coup led by general abdel fattah el-sisi sisi went on to become president or morsi died in june this year during his trial we'll see if he has since strengthened his grip on power journalists have been arrested including those who work for this network rights groups accuse security forces of frequent abuses
10:54 pm
as they crackdown on dissent let's talk to her a nanny who is an associate professor of political science at the do her institute for graduate studies and i'm wondering how much significance would you attach to this particular event in egypt with witness in the last 24 hours i think given the past 6 years that people could not dare to go to streets this is significant over the last 6 years egypt has been under a very oppressive and a pathology that didn't allow when you want to speak up against its policies but now we are seeing a different public mood that is growing in building sort of anti e.c.c. movement so this is significant and i think this might lead to another uprising. in the future people have spoken of this generation of protests as having broken through what they call the fear barrier if you like the fear that emanated from that 2011 brutal repression of people demanding change in cairo do you think that
10:55 pm
that's what we're seeing we're seeing people who are of course at least 8 years younger than those with isil i think so i mean look if you go back to the 2011 no one would expect that this would happen now these would come to the streets the day try to speak they are under severe pressure it is socio economic pressure political pressure so they come to states now to speak up and to ask for one thing she said to resign and to step down. and on the thank you very much indeed. for saudi arabia has again suggested that iran is responsible for the drone strikes on its own facilities the ministers say for foreign affairs other algy bear says the country will take what he said were appropriate steps to respond to the attack. and the wish to my limits to my duty to be in the international community has
10:56 pm
a huge responsibility to put an end to iran's aggressive vandalism policies and practices that undermine the region if not the whole world these acts are in violation of the international laws and international customs run must prove its not a barbarian country is a state if so it should respect the sovereignty of other states free from supporting terrorism in refrain from exporting weapons to terrorist militias in the region that are used against civilians to them for the 2 correspondents on this story we got john hendren he's in washington we'll go to him after his 2nd correspondent as a big in terror on the rainy and capital so i said what we heard from the minister of state for foreign affairs in riyadh was basically a very similar list of accusations that have long been leveled at terror. yes very much so he's accusing iran of supporting terrorism of being behind this attack but the rains will be looking on and they will they will see that saudi
10:57 pm
arabia is still unable to provide evidence as to the origin and source of those missiles and drones are not saudi arabia is saying that they will release the findings of that investigation but right now they're unable to do so they say that it didn't come from yemen they know that it came from the north but they can't prove right now at this point in time whether it came from iran but what we can see from that briefing from saudi arabia is that they very much support donald trump increasing sanctions against iran they want more international support and opposition to iran but also he didn't rule out military military action against iran or the i don't think he really refers to i think they're trying to get international support because the language was that the very much that the international community need to do something this affects oil supplies this is a breach of international laws but the united states has increased sanctions the put sanctions against the iranian central bank and the sovereign wealth fund but
10:58 pm
the foreign minister has responded he said that this shows desperation and the failure of the maximum pressure campaign that the united states has been operating and he says that there are still people that want to drag the united states into a war and they fear that the united states may return to negotiations so very much from the iranian perspective here into her own is that they still denying that they were behind those attacks in the oil facilities in saudi arabia but to saudi arabia is really trying to increase the pressure and gets real support right before the u.n. general assembly because countries there the french and the europeans are trying to deescalate the situation between the united states and iran and saudi arabia seem to have timed this just before that takes place in the hope that countries are ready against iran. i said begun terror on thank you rod is going to john now john hendren who's in washington and john so the remarks being made
10:59 pm
by other allowed to bear the saudi minister say foreign affairs did refer to didn't he the incoming contingent of u.s. troops and materiel that are being sent in the americans were keen when they announced this but keen to to emphasize the defensive nature of this of this of these additional resources being sent to defend or to help beef up saudi's defenses as right out of your very talked about this is an attack on the world and so the u.s. had a responsibility to go there and while the u.s. commitment so far is very small it's enough hundreds of troops we don't know exactly which troops it will be the pentagon points to tell us more about that in the coming week. but what that does mean is that iran now has a deterrent because if it strikes then it could kill americans and that involves the u.s. further in this conflict that would be perhaps
11:00 pm
a provocative act that would did trigger a military reaction right now what you have is the united states and saudi arabia both on the same page saying that they are in a defensive posture but there is clearly a warning going out to iran at a larger bear said necessary measures will be taken what exactly those measures are not clear to us but he says they will be based on the investigation about where all of those drone attacks came from the saudis have been saying they've come from the north but i just spoke to a pentagon official who said those can be rerouted in order to trick people who are trying to trace them so that maybe a more complicated investigation then it might seem in terms of just where they came from but right now what you've got is a small number of american troops there with air defenses in a defensive posture the u.s. does not seem really interested in engaging in a in a full fledged military action.
