12:03 am
one of our peacekeepers showed that a protester was throwing a. team a day in the peacekeepers so we are still in the process so very fine old socks and fact checking the ripples we have received in the midst of all this another tragedy happened and morning attack by a.t.f. on a village about 30 kilometers from benny more than a dozen people hopped to death with machetes some of them to copy tainted. on the streets of benny is also being felt many kilometers south and north. was protestors here have expressed their frustration police have been deployed to keep them from getting too important says this is just a small group of people who have a lot. of police. fired tear gas at protest the all the blood libel
12:04 am
that's in the air to the fact that this one here this is the feeling much more all of what is going on in benny they fear the killings but he also said the united nations me called one move must leave the country. the message was clear and they told us no matter what force is used to remove them from the streets they'll keep coming back until the demands of the people of benny i met what i can at the moment is money being are tired i come from op people are being slaughtered. the u.n. and our soldiers are there and doing nothing why then all this force is there if not to protect our people. they finished their protestant a police station. where they paid their last tribute to he door battle. and back in bed me he was buried by family friends and hundreds of other protestants determined to keep the pressure on until the ballot stops cathy zoi al-jazeera.
12:05 am
one this separate ical alister michael emergence minister he's from the london school of economics thanks for coming in to talk to us so just initially this latest attack it sounds really that it was quite horrific yes it sounds like rugby actually was horrific because when i see some markets 14 people have been hacked to death using machetes and does it do we are expecting this was the same group that was responsible for previous attacks and you're also today yes exactly reports in the same boat exactly the a.d.f. . i mean. in the recent past the islamic state will have also sort of actually come up to say make ownership of it. but this time no one is likely to see anything in the offing the fingers are pointing to the a.d.f. so what i mean we had heard originally from the government that they were going to try and beef up security after the previous attacks and many what did did you know
12:06 am
was there any change in the way security was set up with the u.n. and the army or not in the last few days i mean. basically is i mean the u.n. to keep this by you actually need peace enforcement to be taking place in iraq to cover get the above monday to write and also to yuba to balance the situation there are actually in collaboration with the congolese army see looks like as a tactic of the can release army doing the peace enforcement it's why i asked the un peacekeeping it's our back now. so you're say it's just that there isn't enough there aren't enough people and troops on the ground to protect the villages or yes but also i mean this is about the 14th attack in the space of about 5 weeks so either the intelligence someone is no further than up on that or there's not enough troops on the ground to actually meet up work the rebels are doing here and the huge problems india are seeing is they've had they've had an embezzler outbreak as well and we've had some of the engineers saying that they've had to evacuate health
12:07 am
workers and so on because of the 6 security situations it gives an idea of the knock on effect of the security situation on humanitarian side of things you know exactly i mean it's quite important that the him until humanitarian side is actually operating in peace so they're relying on on the troops the peacekeepers to actually be able to ward off the attacks of the can actually operate because apart from they've been their systems and need to free that they can actually come for treatment without being attacked and so this has a knock on effect on the humanitarian side of things and we've seen the un. arrest people are angry with the u.n. in particular and and the army would that seems to spread not to go massive can does it that these there are no us to spread. very significant because if the citizens are saying that they don't want you there it becomes very difficult to be able to operate. partly because they've been there for quite a while and this spate of attacks is quite ongoing in the last 5 weeks and they're
12:08 am
expecting that the u.n. presence you have to be able to protect them but we haven't seen that happen in our thank you very much indeed for coming to talk to us thank you thank you and the international criminal court in the netherlands has rejected an appeal from the democratic republic of congo's former vice president and rebel leader bender the court has upheld the 12 month sentence handed to the bribing witnesses during his war crimes trial but he won't go to jail having already served 10 years in detention was acquitted of war crimes in june 28th after an appeal rescues in india osses capital kinshasa searching for bodies after tuesday's flooding which killed at least $39.00 people heavy overnight rains caused landslides and brought a rubbish dump down on top of densely packed housing 2 bridges also collapsed and a road fell into a ravine people in west kenya looking for relatives are still missing after heavy

12:13 am
a little measure of people to be a whole and so the portion is that there are protesters there that are very upset with me but they feel it's too much to influence people exercised by neighboring iran on iraq and so that is why you are seeing attacks on the iranian consul defeated 2nd attack in the south on an iranian consulate in early november you had to go testers in the city of karbala also could literally see through to the shia in iraq they attacked the consulate there they scaled it with concrete barriers surrounding the iranian consulate of course they will had security forces moved in and whispers the crowd several were injured but again and again in the country's top you are see a mostly shia protesters that are demonstrating because they are upset that iran is exerting to greater included in the politics now when it comes to buckle down as
12:14 am
you mentioned earlier today it was reported to medical sources that another 2 protesters have been killed when there were clashes with security forces in bulk that is only the latest such events than the last several days again and again we hear a biometrically here of protesters who killed and usually shortly after that the government denies that that has happened which again happened today but all of that's really going to show that this protest movement needs not slowing down even though there is the specter of violence even though people are worried what might happen if they go out in various cities across iraq they are continuing to come out now we did hear from iraq's prime minister are documented he had a cabinet meeting yesterday and he addressed the protest movement and he said that it is everybody's right to come out and protest they should be paid to do. so there are also they cannot break any laws. to be someone to be a tory. but it really hasn't changed every.
12:15 am
episode of the anti-government demonstration with capital. they do not believe in the government. to listen to their demands to show that they are trying to make any kind of government here to say look like. they are having a leisurely parliament speak to the truth which is they say. nothing within the. overhaul of the political system here. and i mean john jim thank you very much and a thought out there that 7 and petrol stations union has called for an open ended blast all strike from thursday they're angry at the increasing expensive backlog at the us dollars which station is used to buy fuel and latest disruption in lebanon which has been gripped by weeks of anti-government protests the minute she was forced to intervene for a 2nd night in a row after supporters of a sham movement hezbollah and
12:16 am
a lot of attack antigovernment protesters in beirut in the northern city of tripoli similar trash as were reported between supporters and opponents of president michel i will. coming up on this news hour from london president trump seeks to distance himself from his noir rudy giuliani and his activities over ukraine. the sort of actions in guinea-bissau where 2 former prime ministers are through to the election runoff but not the president who fired them. and in support preparation delays in the philippines leave for the teams sleeping on floors days before the start of the southeast asian games. sounded coalition says it will start easing restrictions on yemeni airspace so that people who need medical treatment can fly out of the capital some our airport has been closed to commercial flights since 2016
12:17 am
a spokesman for the coalition said flights out of rebel held santa will be operated in cooperation with the world health organization the coalition has also released $200.00 hoofy rebels to support peace efforts aimed at ending 85 years of war and even from the norwegian refugee council says thousands of people have died unnecessarily as a result of the airport's closure but now there is reason to be optimistic. this is reg limit of the hope in a in a desperate war situation for 4 years we've asked for sun our airport to be reopened for these medical flights but also for other commercial and the 1000000000 flights this is the place where which always had to send patients out of the country because they couldn't care for the worst and most complicated medical treatments then the airport was closed at the same time as
12:18 am
the medical systems in yemen collapsed so poor yes now we've seen thousands die in unnecessary for both hope is over but for many patients there is now hope that they can get abroad and get treatment u.s. media is reporting that president donald trump was aware of a whistle blower's complaint against him when he unfroze military aid to ukraine thomas facing an impeachment inquiry of allegations that he withheld the money to force ukraine to less to get its political rivals joe biden a new york times says white house lawyers ensuring trump in august before they told congress and an interview with former fox news host bill o'reilly trump has sought to distance himself police lawyer who giannis activities on ukraine saying he has not directed him to work on ukraine matters. let's get more from on this from
12:19 am
article hayne in washington d.c. so tell us more about how this is happening mr distancing between trump and giuliani. it's really a familiar pattern at this point isn't it lauren somebody gets in trouble that's close to the president the president comes out either says i barely know the guy or no i didn't direct him to do that so the president now going as you mentioned on that conservative radio show and saying that he didn't direct rudy giuliani to take care of the ukraine policy the problem for the president is that his own transcript that the white house released what's basically a summary of the call between himself and the ukrainian president the president says talk to rudy talk to the attorney general it also contradicts literally pretty much all the testimony we heard from all of the witnesses in the impeachment hearing that were either told or believed there were any had been directed by the president to tackle this ukraine issue that was so bothering the president that he apparently held up almost 4 $100000000.00 worth of aid so the backstory of all of
12:20 am
this it's not just that this is something the president does and it gets in trouble he's tries to walk away is rudy giuliani likes to go on t.v. just about as much as the president does he's been on conservative media he came out he said he's not worried about the president throwing him under the bus like other people have felt that they have been because he had an insurance policy so now reuters is reporting that jude giuliani's lawyer has directed giuliani to call the president to say he was just kidding he doesn't really have an insurance policy the problem for giuliani is this is the 1st time he's said that about the president of the united states and giuliani is definitely in the crosshairs 2 of his associates have been indicted for campaign finance violations one has said that he's basically in a spill everything that congress his lawyer says he's going to has handed over e-mails and videos so all of that could become a part of the impeachment hearing we believe federal prosecutors are targeting giuliani that they've issued subpoenas for documents from his firm and reporters
12:21 am
are really digging into him right now the new york times is reporting as he was allegedly trying to get this information. for the president he was in talks to get hundreds of thousands of dollars from some ukrainian officials to represent them so rudy giuliani trying to send the message that he is an insurance policy publicly privately telling the president he doesn't well the same time it is very clear federal prosecutors have a target on him benteke again thank you very much indeed. mexico's president is calling for cooperation rather than intervention by the united states after president all trump said he is working on a fishing designating mexico's drug gangs as terrorist organizations trump says it's in response to the number of deaths resulting from drugs trafficked from mexico i don't fisher has more from mexico city. the death of 9 americans in a cartel ambush earlier this month sparked widespread outreach for the victims 3 women 6 children were traveling through
12:22 am
a remote area in northern mexico when they were attacked jule u.s. mexican citizens the family the labatt ins demanded the white house days ignorant mexican drug cartels as terrorist organizations you're going to do a telephone interview with a right wing talk host president donald trump said that process is underway i've been working on that for the last 90 days you know designation is that there is no i don't go through a process. mexico's drug cartels are huge operations they control large chunks of the country and they're involved in drug trafficking assassinations kidnapping and political corruption being designated a terrorist organization by america means it becomes illegal for anyone to knowingly support the groups if banks realize they handle any cartel funds they must block the money under and form the government a new members are banned from entering the u.s. and so taking this move while it might benefit the president in the united states and it might make people feel righteous and justified and satisfied here that we're taking stronger steps alternately may make it harder to do business with the
12:23 am
mexicans and we need to be a team with them in order to get this problem solved mexico's policy on fighting the cartels has changed under the new president and this man well the obrador who's been in office almost exactly a year he believes in hugs not bullets and that social conditions need to change to make the cartels less economically powerful got bit as young. see in the engineers more not but one expert says if the u.s. president follows through on his threat to clear out the cartels and uses military action there could be significant mexican backlash with this they do a side it can stay in mexico and organize who are one attack or something against a mexican gov't that's in mexican soil and this is the problem because mexico is being the scene at least in that because of their country and that's it any
12:24 am
difference of that the mexican government has had donald trump make threats like this before remember when he threatened to close down the entire border and then backed away they will of course start making plans but they're hoping that the white house will back away from what many people here see as a dangerous and dramatic overreaction alan fischer al-jazeera mexico city. well andrea is the author of napco inside mexico's criminal insurgency joins us via skype from mexico city thanks for being with us so is that the biggest concern in mexico city that that this could turn into something which authorizes or ends up authorizing some kind of military intervention into mexico by the u.s. . yeah that's the kind of alarm bell is ringing from and this is coming amid quite tense times following the mask over the lower on family discussed in the report. then offered military back up to mexico there were some congressman republican
12:25 am
congressman saying if mexico carvers old this we should take matters into our own hands so this idea of kind of american troops poor and over the border to shoot some cartel members it was kind of a fantasy for a long time but now it's something that really appears on the sable and if it was a designated terrorist group you could see the action or drone strike like there's been actions to attack foreign targets ensuite down pakistan many other countries it's us i thought what kind of difference would it make to designate cartels as a terrorist organization what kind of powers does it does it including. so it's really has it would have all kinds of things and maybe some unintended consequences if you look at what happened with the fock release in colombia that there's a net terrorists and some of the paramilitaries then they were arrested next jointly united staes and charged on terrorist crimes and that could be something which helps prosecutors guard the cartels but who is also could have some other
12:26 am
consequences for example most of the guns helped by the cartels in mexico come from the united states between 207-0080 there was 150000 guns taken from criminals and traced the u.s. gun shops or gun factories most of the people on the u.s. side only get suspended sentences or probation if they're caught taking guns to the cartels but if this happened they could be given senses like 20 years in prison another consequence could be those many refugees fleeing mexico because of the violence and going to the united states and try to apply for asylum there is very hard to get refugee status in the united states if you come from mexico you're not filling a military dictatorship you're not. filing an official war if you have clearly a designated terrorist group then a judge to look much more favorably on your case and so we've had a reaction or some kind of muted relatively muted reaction from the president saying our only say corporation yes interventionism no but they have for mysteries
12:27 am
requested a meeting with my pump air so how do you think the mexican government will handle this going forward i don't think the mexican government's going to put a huge amount of political capital 'd in trying to stop this i think in itself that designation is not going to be terrible for mexico it's not to make that much difference overrule the problem is easy if it was used to justify military intervention so i think want the foreign secretary muster up broadwell will make very clear is ok you could doesn't make mysteries you can do these things but do not have a military strike into mexico that will cause all kinds of problems and there's a real danger with this administration the 'd white house they could do that and greener thank you very much indeed for taking the time to talk to us and i was there thank you spanish police have seized a home in submarine that was carrying 3000 kilos of cocaine across the atlantic the
