build and so the money will come together but it's the loss of the historic have break that is going to leave a lasting pain for one of the serving as not only to see generate sympathy across europe. but as something of a rallying call for the european project to this actually have a positive boost moving towards the european parliamentary elections next month it's difficult to say brant because you don't know how in event like this that is so emotional and will play out really it is difficult to sort of turn this politically into something that you can work with is that you can sort of you know how can you turn the burning down the national symbol of the heart of paris. to two for hope and look to the future and sort of turning turning the fates of
people in europe so that is very difficult the messaging that will have to come out of this and at the moment everybody is still sort of occupied was digesting what happened here it was sort of a lot of raw emotion here tonight people watching us and of silence for hours and sort of people really being sort of gripped by this spectacle and so the future we'll see in a few days how. the french media and politicians will sort of deal with that. as we've been saying for the people of france notre dame is much more a can see it is part of their identity as a nation take a look. parts of what we are an essential parts of paris is in peril that was the reaction of many in france is the fire took hold they looked on incredulous as the
flames engulfed notre dame. for the french people not to dom is more than just a cathedral it's the heart of paris a landmark alongside the eiffel tower a magnet for millions of visitors a year notre dame stands on the internet city in the middle of the river saying it's france's most famous catholic monument dating right back to the middle ages. suring the french revolution many of the cathedrals treasures were planted in a china for it was the venue for napoleon's coronation as the emperor of france. eight hundred thirty one so the publication of the famous novel the hunchback of notre dame by victor hugo it was a huge success and brought the cathedral new attention. now in twenty nineteen the unthinkable has happened the flames consuming not to dumb cathedral taking with them centuries of history. lots of history let's talk about the future though
the sun's going to come up it's going to be the day after this tragedy what is paris going to do with it you know barbara was talking about the mayor is going to have to deal with the political boy back for what response. by the fire department for example well that would be a lot to answer for indeed these forty five minutes delay between the moment the fire broke and the first intervention of firefighters in something that one cannot fathom in a capital city like paris where we supposed to have firefighters who are trained for duck out of situations and we know that after the terrorist attack that took place in paris they weren't those exercises of evacuation and five fighters must have been involved then we. no doubt the exercises that took place in no time so why did they take so unknown tonight there was this state of emergency after the terror attack in twenty fifteen right yeah so there would have been time to prepare
for all kinds of disasters but those exercises together by the firefighters the police the emergency services were done in light of the terrorist attacks but they like if people are even more urgency services can intervene in so situations why couldn't they intervene to not and that's that's something that the mayor of paris i need out of will have to answer for as soon as tomorrow why did that response was delayed response was. the the money for the rehabilitation wasn't there to begin with that may have spirit as all of this if it had been there in the first place i mean we don't know what caused this fire and it's very hard to prove a negative but we do know that that the people behind supporting this cathedral supporting us renovations supporting its upkeep have been struggling for years for decades even to get the necessary funding to keep this thousand year old
cathedral going the french state only provides two and a half million dollars a year for its just basic upkeep and maintenance it promised a few years ago to double that of five million dollars over the next decade as part of this twenty year long renovation projects and it's not it's not for pretty things it's for essential infrastructure support of this to keep this massive massive piece of architecture functioning and stable and secure the supporters of the renovation project were estimating this could cost up to one hundred eighty million dollars of just before the fire and now we have to wait for investigators to tell us what this might cost as as we said french billionaire painter has pledged one hundred million euro sounds like a lot of money but we really don't know what we're dealing with until investigators can get in there and see what they write him into. you know it was just dealing with the fire scene an active fire scene and when you look at notre dame what do you see there do you see a place of worship or do you see an icon for your home country definitely
a symbol of friends an icon and not a place of work shift of worship i mean a lot of people in friends are not believers say they do not belong to any church and yet they are affected tonight and outpolled by what is happening because not i'm is a symbol for friends and it has been so for centuries now it's part of our history it's a vibe to friendship oh they're showing that it's a vibe to world war one and world war two without being bombed and he was one of the few cathedrals in france which had never suffered from a fire it's actually something that used to be very come on in the medieval times and the other night and perrier and. i was as if by miracle i'm not god i'm had never suffered any plight such as the wanting to enter tonights that's a very good boy barbara what have you been hearing in paris tonight it's about
what six percent of the french attend church regularly this is not a society with a high level of religiosity what have people been saying to you what do they see when they look at notre dame. yes but they still feel heartbroken i mean it is still a very emotional event and that is because it is just so symbolic for france it is just somehow a sign for the long gavitt to you off of the french nation reaching back to middle ages being one of the most stable countries in the europe that was sort of invaded by army spot that was never completely overrun or torn apart and that somehow always managed to sort of forum and go for reform and go forward and sort of stay french throughout a very long time and it is that historic that deep history connection that french
people have to their country to the soil and to the to the main cities of fragments that that makes for the response that is what has been very emotional tonight here people really speaking about being being hunted broke and being very emotional and very touched by the spectacle and and southpaw it's something horrible happening in front of their eyes that everybody you looked at and you think you you would want to stop it and people were very quiet here on the bridges around the not to the cathedral and watching this with this sort of very somber mood and it did touch people it's not so much they really are religious side but it is the loss of an historical symbol off the rootedness of france in its own past and we can you know hear the sirens in the background there where you are and as we approach the
daybreak into tuesday morning on the normal you know late monday night early tuesday morning there will be a lot going on even in a city like paris on the streets but tonight it's a completely different picture or isn't. yet police has largely blocked off the sane islands and orders so too for emergency vehicles to get through firefighters moving back and forth and to just sort of keep traffic away from here and people have slowly been dispersing they've been out here for hours this group on the bridge here which is still singing religious him sent a very low voices but the other people have slowly drifted home they have seen what they had come to see and everybody left sort of in a sad mood so it is affecting the city this was this is going to take a long time to go away and all the talk about rebuilding it's not that easy you
can't really bring something back that has been there for a thousand years and that gets almost destroyed within a few hours that seems to be an ominous sign a sign for things not going well for france and so many people will feel this is a sort of negative and. negative. do you feel that way and it certainly feels like it's the and of a part of this civilization we do know if they got to negative omo will see the future who will tell us in any case it is a very sad day for france for french people they've lost one of their one piece of their cultural heritage and it's something that's that's that's a damage in my name across presidency a bit further because it happens under our he's men date even though like i say the lack of funding that we were talking about before didn't happen only. under his
mandate is this the result of politic in terms of cultural heritage that it has been trying not only can it go the positive it. looked a lot worse earlier in the evening but i mean it for a while we were looking at a complete destruction of this cathedral the towers or risk of collapsing they saved them we also can note that nobody died yes very important nobody died this happened after the tours were closed mr gage was closed for the day there was one seriously injured firefighter was reported we'll hear more about him or her later perhaps and i think it's a very humbling moment for for people everywhere we i think we get lured into the sense of safety in our modern life that we have all this technology and modern political theory available to us to solve all of our issues and for for something so rudimentary as fire it reminds us that we are all very much at the whim of
nature and these things can still happen that's a very good for us a good point to close on him and of course barbara in paris to all of you thank you very much the day is almost over the conversation continues online if i just on twitter at u.w. news or you can follow me of when we get to use the hash tag the day we are going to leave you now with images of that fire at notre dame cathedral in paris and remember whatever happens. between now and then tomorrow is another day we'll see the next.

missed. my. respect. this is. coming up on the program indonesia prepares for general election wednesday as it is a logistical nightmare but. on the very question of democracy in the country. any citizen over the age of twenty five without a criminal record can. try but even in the face of such a defeat. as the season of. its t.v.
screens fans of the. one kind of tells unlike you. welcome to. it's good to have you with us we begin in. denise rich is headed to the polls on wednesday in what has been called the most complicated ballot in global history and here is why around one hundred ninety two million indonesians are slated to vote in five separate elections ranging from the presidential and parliamentary to provincial and local this would happen across the country with more than seventeen thousand islands spread across three time zones and if that isn't challenging enough there are about two hundred forty five thousand candidates in total in the running all this on one day but the headline
contest will be between these two men president your korver dawdle and former military general brabo voice will be on top they faced off against each other in the last election in twenty fourteen as an election joe corey as the current president is known won by a whisker but this time round the stakes are even higher and campaigning that ended on the weekend has been crucial chaotic and creative. now this pressley indonesian style but instead of classic rock n roll this version prefers islam infused beats. to popular local music dang dude is here to drum up support for candidates in the upcoming election. when there's music we come alive and there are also islamic clerics preaching. room
. yeah she's a supporter of probably be until the former son in law of indonesia is the dictator . sitting a nationalist and populist tone the retired military general banks and the support of conservative voters. his rival joe cole we don't know if in this more of a moderate the incumbent seeking a second term as president to carry on with the reforms he promised five years ago . with heavy metal music he wishes to capture the hearts of young voters which he says is crucial to win the poll. a third of indonesia's one hundred ninety million voters a millennial among them five million will be first time voters like angelica she hopes to choose a government that cares about the welfare of the people. who may have already but
as a first time voter i feel happy and proud that now my voice can help determine the future of this country it's my duty as a good citizen. other voters care about the religious tolerance that was once taken for granted in the majority muslim country buddhist leader and diesel want to hopes religion can be kept out of indonesian politics despite the rise of hard line political islam in recent years. do not use religion as a political tool we should be actively involved in ensuring harmony among followers of different religions. but no matter how diverse the country is there something many indonesians share their desire for a better future and the love for music. let's get more graphic in the news and service he's in jakarta to cover the elections it's good to see you know it's a complicated enough election as it is but what are the key. well there are
three key issues to watch in this election in egypt namely own democratic future because of the defies if campaign strategy human rights violation and also economy get the latest being the most important ones for the voters china has become a contentious issue forward for this because for many indonesians and chinese involvement in their own economy is hugely unpopular but unluckily for both candidates. whoever wins this election will be dependent on china's chinese vestment to boost the economy growth because indonesia is not an easy country to infest specially for many westerners because of the infrastructure and also due massive corruption problems and so far china is the only big investors who are reeling to manage those risks in terms of managing these risks into egypt because
at the current president your cover dawdle has been balancing it well somewhat because infrastructure appears to have been one of the things that he's been preaching to his voters is that's something that is going to stand him in good stead. well the president jokingly to try to put infrastructure policy or his infrastructure policy on the center office agenda as a big achievement of their hero his government but. human rights activists. say that this policy also has also created many human rights for rhaetian especially on land the positions just simply too many problems for them to call their infrastructure policy to be a big achievement. and we still see many environmental activists being arrested for example going to try to. indigent indigenous. rights for
indigenous people against mining companies for example and they said it's one change in the next five years whoever reinstate election. indonesia is also the world's largest most a majority country besides being the third most populous democracy how important is the most dawn the political rhetoric has increasingly taken in indonesia in these elections. well it also it's created. a hostile environment especially for minorities for special forces u.t.i. people going i talked to them to say that whoever wins the election got the big losers because. both candidates will not risk their own future political future for them and in fact. i mean if the international say it since two thousand and sixteen indonesia has experience more persistent acts of intimidation and marginalization against people such as public shaming for example right i mean let
them even there for the time being from out in the nation service speaking to us from jakarta thank you very much thank you. from the wilds thud most populous democracy to the most populous which is also holding elections india where any of its one point five billion citizens who are over the age of twenty five and don't have a criminal record can run for office that ensures a colorful host of candidates entering the elections with little to no chance of winning. a veteran candidate on the campaign trail here in the city of mature new to prague desh. is running for office again it's the seventeenth time that the holy man has been on the ballot of state and national level. groups boarders i've been contesting since one thousand nine hundred seventy six he predicted that i'd win my twentieth election. long road in politics has been

i'm christine wonderwall come to the news africa i'm glad you're cheating day and we begin in sudan where days off to omar al bashir is all stuff people are still protesting the country's military rule is off. basing pressure from demonstrators and western governments to had power to a new civilian government a sheer old sedan with an iron fist for thirty years before he was finally overthrown by the military last week off to mass protests that have rocked the country since december. they have been here since the six of april and they're not ready to give up protesters have encircled the defense ministry the intelligence headquarters and the presidential residence in ca too they want to civilian government not their knowledge say couple of the military command council isn't enough. on friday the former right hand of also president bashir defense minister i

monday five thousand people blocked an attempt by the army to break of the protest camp outside the defense ministry this after the army brought in tricked us to move the barricades. the fall off amal bashir is the latest in a wave of changes sweeping away many off africa's longest serving rule is just days before bashir was pushed out of office abilities bush defeat off algeria was ousted off to weeks of protests the military eventually turned on the eighty two year old and he was forced to resign after nearly two decades in power before which if eco was zimbabwe's rabbit mugabe who was removed from office in twenty seventeen off to thirty four gives the difference here is there were no princes that he's not the kind we've seen in algeria and so done but it's the military was instrumental in helping the faction of mugabe's party that cross it his alstom now among africa's
remaining long serving leaders all paul b.-a of cameroon the eighty six year old wanted lost his presidential election with and with thirty seven years in office is currently the longest ruling non royal leda in the world uganda's un with seventy trails not too far behind at thirty three is in office now my guest today wrote an opinion piece he titled africa extinction of the dinosaurs in the article published in all africa dumisani malaya says it's the end of an era for african dictators the journalist and political commentator joins me now from zimbabwe's capital city. welcome to. africa mr. we've seen a pass in here of military intervention. in terms of these long ruling the ages and you've written that elections in many countries in africa are a mere charade so for the countries that are still holding these long really need
are protests and then military intervention looking like the only way change can come about in these countries. it. is the phenomena of military intervention in this country is in these african countries as we have seen in in zimbabwe in algeria in the sudan it's fundamentally a product of a failed electoral process is failed to look for systems. of people have been given so many opportunities to vote and tried to express themselves and they should change in their countries those systems failed them and as a result you see in the intervention of the military in. algeria in zimbabwe before that and now in sudan is primarily because the person says the electoral process is notes leads you to mates they are made
a sharp read and the people when they fail to free expression of those processes they end up to bring up with the military in order to effect change ok but you sort of alluded in that opinion piece you sort of teaming up with the military to bar you would see as as an unconstitutional removal of the dictators and then you say that that makes the transition from dictatorship to democracy complicated are you saying that that's what we've seen in algeria and sudan and what is the prospect of democracy for these countries. yeah it makes it very complicated because when the military gets involved in the politics to begin with is i'm democratic is unconstitutional although it is desirable because most of these people are in forces with the military to overthrow a dictator as they would have been trying for the electoral process is in failing they would have been a person in failed leadership and they failed economic policies for a long time so they end up. in the process of teaming up with the military you
create a new problem because when you overthrow the constitution the overthrow of the dictator has now you see is a new challenge of how do you sort of solution from dick to. the democrats are. very very different to democratic institutions when they get involved in politics they will do things their way the best of which is the way. these months. presumably the zimbabwe. is that are made by the heavily militarized that is why you are having a very difficult position because the military is it's not a democratic institution and they would really want to ensure. that remember in the first place the involved primarily because they wanted to solve a. problem. with their position. so they were not in the first place to democratize the process. is experience of the need to use because of the real reason why they were involved in the first place which
was to save themselves preserve ok mr mann i want to get to my other question here and that is in this piece that i'm referencing you talk about now being this full of dictators this is this is the end of the era you say and i'm i'm wondering why you use years so adamant up now being the time given the fact that we've seen dictators in other countries for libya for example why you adamant about now being the time. now it is becoming the time for dictators to really watch because there is a new dynamic that is great one of the new dynamic is people power if you could just see if you wanted to break through the arab spring you saw it wave of uprising as in north africa into the middle east the people taking the power in to be on on his to confront the dictators so one of them i'm in egypt who was a long serving dictator i was and he was overthrown during that period and we also
saw the same situation happening in tunisia so when people begin to feel that they can be able to effect a change through uprisings through the streets the politics of the streets about them through the by laws that introduce a new dynamic and that dynamic was seen playing itself out in zimbabwe algeria and also don so it is clear that we now have different kinds of politics brought in kind of polices playing offices in africa and the budget is written in dictators are crossed the kind of way they remain in power. journalist and political commentator. from how that is the bob we thank you. it's a month since. the southeast africa the storm killed more than one thousand people in mozambique some bubbly and and of people are still missing as a result of the severe flooding that hit the region the world bank estimates that three million people are still suffering the ofter effects off the natural disaster one of the worst affected places was the port city of beirut it was

anger is hitting the road again full of optimism and drive despite the difficult situation and for the challenge i think that's. i feel the subject has to be god and i feel there's a problem because someone has to do something. so i feel great i feel. there's a blessing was a choice phrase dad this exhaust the size of business or the joys my god the first child is going to be very different so it's among those next week plan a day when a conference in may he wants to collect more aids money for the reconstruction of his city so the people of great reckon livia once again like they did before cycling he died. and that is it from his africa that catch all story is on out website and facebook page we leave you now with images of the creole jazz
