islands off the coast of indonesia literally it's a big business. when they go take their in through the sand is there you see this beautiful beach but behind it is something that's not so plentiful tragedy is that people are just not aware and ecological investigation into a global emergency sound at this time on al jazeera. police fired tear gas as protests in egypt run into its 2nd night the demonstrators are demanding president's easy step down. and you're watching al-jazeera live from doha it's good to have your company also
8:49 am
coming up. saudi arabia says it will respond to an attack on its all facilities following an investigation of blames iran for the assault. we young people are on stoppable. activists credit opens the 1st un climate summit saying she and others will not rest until there is action on global warming. it's really are you in the art world i would say. and they're looking at us for journeys immortalize telling the stories of the global refugee crisis through art. so more protests have broken out in egypt the demonstrators demanding the resignation of the president of the. security forces have farm. tear gas at protesters in the streets of suez rallies are also under way in which is near cairo
8:50 am
it comes after thousands went on the streets across the country on friday dozens of people were arrested in the clashes with police at an demonstration in the capital the bridges were sparked by an online call from the prominent egyptian businessman and actor muhammad ali he's in self-imposed exile in spain and he's been calling for protests in regular videos which have gone viral across egypt well the former government contractor has posted a new message on social media ahmed ali is calling on egyptian security forces this time to remove presidency from power by next friday or he says millions will take to the streets. i so i'm still waiting for a response from the defense minister and security forces saying c.c. is out he is no longer fit for this next friday is his ultimatum i'm waiting for that decision and the next step is
8:51 am
a multi 1000000 man march we started in our local streets next friday we will take to the major squares. and we have a correspondent with us now and. so. first give us an overview of the protests we're seeing now what's happening this evening there well they haven't stopped. talking good good true days in a row of significant protests across several cities obviously the major ones cairo and alexandria suez but also monsoor. and other provinces as well neighboring areas to cairo like gears and so forth i'm just looking at one video now coming in of. the armored personnel carrier of the police going through and people throwing glass bottles from their balconies at it so even those who haven't taken to the streets are expressing their anger from their homes and that's probably because it is still very much dangerous for people to protest i mean and
8:52 am
this is one of the things we were speaking about corruption we're talking about muhammad ali and the videos that have come out and so forth but that's only one elements that has led to such widespread discontent amongst a large section of the society there is poverty there's oppression there's crackdowns of press freedom lack of space or paternity for what is a sizeable youthful population in egypt and all of these are manifesting themselves now in this organic demonstration of anger and rejection to a president who aside from the arguments where they came in democratically or not but he came in promising to transform egypt into a flourishing country and the excuse constantly used for the lack of free. was that you know if people would be patient they would see egypt as a developed country they would see the opportunities they would reap the rewards when in fact all that's happened is a constant the gradation of the daily lives of millions of egyptians who have
8:53 am
slipped more and more into poverty and that's why it seems that they've finally had enough come out and rather than seeing pictures of our lives at the house you see held up with happy faces and are being ripped down and stamped on by protesters in several cities now even mention this one of the issues is the security forces there rigid very rigid structure they're not allowing any space for dissent but we have seen these protests take place even under the fear of power of possible crackdown what has been the response of the security security forces well the early hours comparative true the what people call an iron fist but i think the kind of dilutes the reality of it what really is a restrained response compared to the. totalitarian essentially militarized state that egypt is and that's what it is according to all or service in human rights organizations that restraint seems to have been discarded now we've had
8:54 am
over the past 24 hours or put into rights activists in egypt more than 150 arrests that we know of leaders forcible disappearances and other things that come to mind and we've seen in suez not only tear gas and other things being used but some sort of other ammunition being fired by police officers but there are there is always a tipping point with everything so there is a level of force that is used in order to prevent and make people scared to take to the streets but if you reach that tipping point and people no longer have anything to fear you know the whole saying that the most dangerous man is somebody who has nothing to lose and if somebody has lost their lives or lost their livelihood or lost their loved ones is. thousands have in egypt jails and and prisons then the fear factor could very much be irrelevant to them because they view in the end of the day that idea of a guy is slowly in poverty or in some sort of. oppression or if they risk
8:55 am
the chance that yes maybe it will be a quicker punishment if they were to be arrested or tortured or even killed but maybe the chance of them being able to force some sort of change in a system that has failed to deliver the basic needs of these millions of people in the risk may just be enough for them to decide to go to the streets jamal you've reported extensively on egypt so thank you very much it's been great to have your insight. as protests rock the country just president of the fatalities he is in new york for the united nations general assembly while he is there sisi is expected to meet the u.s. president of trump during the g. 7 summit in france last month donald trump labeled c.z. a good man and a great leader and referring to his egyptian counterpart reportedly he asked where's my favorite dictator the 2 also met during last year's u.n. general assembly in new york and congratulated sisi for doing an outstanding job in
8:56 am
his country and at a summit in rio then 2017 trump complimented the egyptian leader shoes while sisi said trump had a unique personality that is capable of doing the impossible well mike hanna has more on this relationship from washington. president trump invited to the sea to the white house shortly after he was made president he's met with him now on a fairly regular occasion he describes him as a strong leader who's done a fantastic job in egypt is what president trump says he also strangely enough at a meeting of the g. 7 last month said at one stage where is my favorite dictator according to a number of people who were present at that particular meeting but he met the egyptian president at the 7 summit and of course he's going to be meeting him again on the sidelines of the u.n. general assembly next week so regardless of the human rights abrogation is within
8:57 am
each of president trump has never made any comment about that the white house has stayed completely silent while many in congress have expressed deep concern about the human rights record in egypt and have called into question that one point $4000000000.00 that the u.s. pays a jew egypt each year. and other news saudi arabia says it's will wait until it finishes investigating last week's jones strikes on 2 if it's all societies before taking action saudis minister of state for foreign affairs believes u.n. investigators will confirm iran was behind the strikes on our aamco riyadh has rejected a claim by yemen's who at the rebels that they carried out the strikes. in the wisdom and wisdom i do in. the international community has a huge responsibility to put an end to runs 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 must prove it's not
8:58 am
a barbarian country does 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 as i said big has more on the reaction from terror on. so you are a good repeated the allegations accusing iran of behind being behind those attacks accusing iran of funding terrorist organizations but also be appealing to the international community and trying to get opposition to iran the language is very much that iran has broken international law that this attack on iran's actions could affect oil supplies to the rest of the world and they're trying to tell the world that they need to get on board with what the united states and saudi arabia want to censure the more sanctions more pressure on iran from the iranian perspective they will see this as. still able to prove where those drones and missiles came from so this is that the investigation is still ongoing and they
8:59 am
would release those findings but the united states has put sanctions further sanctions on iran and iran central bank now the foreign minister jihads reasons for that he said that this shows the desperation because of the maximum pressure campaign isn't working for the united states he also said that there are people that fear that the united states will return to negotiations and they want to drag the united states into a war so from iran spur specked if they're watching this is this briefing and it's still very much the same accusations leveled against iran but very little evidence at this point in time. well the u.s. is sending more troops to saudi arabia to boost defenses against what it calls iranian aggression and to mention new u.s. sanctions are also being imposed on iran it's a move the foreign minister jobs their way of has described as desperate to him a blank america's. hand sanctioning the central bank shows us disparate should more than anything else because americans have imposed whatever sanctions they could
9:00 am
against iran what they are doing right now is to sanction the central bank that has already been sanctioned but under a different title but of course there are measures shows there endeavor to block iran's international commerce to block food and medicine from reaching the people of iran. and still ahead on al-jazeera marking 5 years of a rebel takeover yemen's who these celebrates a key milestone birthday the. interior gas and mortar cannon hong kong's protests show no signs of slowing down. the air. the season the tents probably succeeds in changing we're going to tarnish you again.
