3:04 pm
make a difference can this extradition bill still be stopped well if you listen to the hong kong government the answer is no carry lamb the chief executive. issued a statement today she's sad that she thanked all these people for expressing their opinion but she would not consider this opinion she would push ahead with her bill and she would not step down. this of course will most probably spark further protests and more anger in the city but as you've been covering these protests and we did hear from authorities that there were clashes last night between police and these protesters what can you tell us about that. our own 12 o'clock when most protesters had left a group of students said that they would camp outside of the building you can see here behind me. the parliament the city's parliament until.
3:05 pm
wednesday that is when the bill is due to be discussed in let's go. and. then there are several words one version is that part of these people tried to storm the government headquarters which are just next to the parliament and were then dispersed by the police others say that when time according to the protest ended at 2359 at midnight the police dispersed the people who were gathering around and that erupted into clashes. it's both both things did happen it's hard to say which one was the 1st and then the clashes continued until you early morning their own 6 o'clock i think there was news that all everything out to be terminated around the streets around here. spilling a reporting in hong kong for us thank you. now at least 95 people have been killed in an ethnic attack in central mali it is the latest escalation in an ongoing
3:06 pm
conflict between rival communities in the west african country the attack happened in the village of so bunco which is inhabited by members of the duggan community officials say gunmen attacked overnight virtually wiping out the entire village fighting between don hunters and rivals will any herders has already left hundreds dead in the past year and a half let's bring in journalist pasta muskies in mali's capital bamako and joins us on the line graham do we have any information on why this attack on this village took place. we don't have any information exactly on why this particular attack took place but you can put this in as you've already said in your introduction you can put this in the context of the why the cycle of violence that have been going on in this region which is in the center of mali. and which have seen an escalation off attacks since the beginning of this year when villages were
3:07 pm
attacked with similar numbers or victims in the hundreds and this seems to be the latest one in this ongoing cycle ok so this is an ongoing cycle of violence fran you're sara and saying so what do we know at this point about the perpetrators. there are now rumors circulating year old all these have to be confirmed that there have been that this attack was perpetrated by. people who came in with arms at 3 am in the morning and when everybody was asleep obviously and attacked a village and burned most of it down or at least cause great damage and the marrow of the village is on record saying that at least he had counted something like $95.00 victims this is likely to go up and in the online media here in bamako now the feeling seems to be that this has been perpetrated by pearl and this is quite clearly a revenge for earlier attacks that were blamed on global militias in which many pro people were killed in attacks against their villages braniff this is an ongoing
3:08 pm
cycle of violence what are authorities local and federal doing to prevent attacks like these. very little because there is a very little that they can do the army is overstretched it can't cope with the levels of violence of have been going on for years now and 1st in the north from been in the central the country and the state has absent itself from large swaths of this particular region in central mali because of the uncertainty and because of the high levels of insecurity so the state is largely absent. being calls obviously for the state to be reinstated but that presupposes that security which can which nobody can guarantee all right journalist from posthumous reporting from ali's capital bamako thank you very much for speaking to us. let's get a roundup now of some other stories making news around the world an indian court has

3:10 pm
nuclear deal those words came after talks with german foreign minister heikal mosse in tehran mohammad javad zarif said the discussions had been frank and serious he also warned the u.s. against waging what he called an economic war on iraq. let's go to tehran and a correspondent for the news agency a.f.p. joins us hi i'm aware that the talks between moss and a jets or a seems to have seemed to have had some success what do you make of the words that we've heard coming from them today. hello and thanks for having me well the 1st thing i felt was that if you saw the press think seem to be going that's great it's going to be a little tension between the 2 men and 1st and the 1st question was came about israel and iran a lot of the difference between the 2 major the even more significant because coming from the words that they say during the press it does not seem there's a. clear result you could say that iran still
3:11 pm
said what is expected from the european union to have germany was not exactly able to give a. clear understanding of what that include offer it was if they didn't mention in stakes again that is old news that it's been more than a year and nothing has happened so i mean from iran's perspective what is iran looking for what does it need to see from germany and europe to save the scale. of the ideal situation what is wrong with being able to sell this oil and it's being able to have its banking relations without the u.s. interference with that would be that is definitely ideal and that seems very hard to have and that seems rather you could say close to impossible for europe to make happen because of the close financial relations and dependence they have on the u.s. market so is expecting europe to step in and be able to live on this
3:12 pm
commitment to the nuclear deal but it seems very unlikely that europeans would actually be able to do that especially if they are trying in other requirements or talks or just talking about iran's missile program or its regional policies which iran really emphasize again today that that is was be part of any negotiation any talks all right i mean i have asked a correspondent for the a.f.p. news agency in tehran thank you so much for joining us. now the deal was struck in 2015 between iran france germany britain russia china and the us it was meant to restrict iran's ability to make nuclear weapons in exchange for relief from economic sanctions but since donald trump told the u.s. out of the deal there's been rising tension between washington and tehran. the iran nuclear deal requires tarantella limit its atomic enrichment in verifiable ways so
3:13 pm
that it cannot make weapons and requires it to submit to international inspections in return tehran is supposed to get relief from sanctions and gain access to frozen assets but the u.s. has pulled out unilaterally and really imposed sanctions president obama made a deal the iran nuclear deal which was a terrible deal because it was a short term deal didn't do the trick and i was very much against it i was very much against the deal i terminated the deal and iran is a much different country today the u.s. has also sent additional warships to the middle east as part of a pressure campaign that some fear risks escalating into open conflict. the other signatories to the nuclear deal insist they can still make it work. french president emanuel mccraw has tried to project unity from the european side while accommodating washington releasing this introduces an objective what do we need to do 1st you want to be sure they don't get you know you can with them meanwhile the
3:14 pm
reimposed economic sanctions have hit the iranian economy hard logic here that's the employment situation is a catastrophe those who have a store has to close it and look for another job those who have studied need to look for a job but where where they're going to work. the broader danger should iran break completely from the agreement is that a new nuclear arms race will take place the u.s. recently announced it wants to renegotiate with iran but tehran says the u.s. has not shown good faith. whenever they stop cruelty against a nation that put aside the cruel sanctions fulfill their commitments and return to the negotiating table which they themselves left the road is not closed for them. the road is open how about. syria but as president trump has made clear over the past year the u.s. is unlikely to agree to any of that and trust among the parties is in short supply . let's bring in our political correspondent simon young for some analysis on the
3:15 pm
story hi simon we heard there trust is in short supply this is a difficult delicate mission for the german foreign minister can he really ease tensions with iran here is it is really difficult he's gone see tehran with this message that you know there's still a bit of room for diplomacy that dialogue can work and asking them to stay with the iran nuclear deal but it doesn't really look as if he's had a lot of success in the press conference after his meeting with the iranian minister of foreign minister zarif the iranian said well you know the u.s. cannot expect to stay safe after launching an economic war and they also said whoever starts a war with us will not be the one who finishes it so pretty tough language there and worrying language given the fact that the united states has wrapped up its military posture in the region with an aircraft carrier and heavy bombers there and
3:16 pm
it's got its tough sanctions in place as well as well so it's not clear what the german foreign minister can do other than keep talking and yet come again we've heard from germany from the european union that they are committed to saving this nuclear deal despite the u.s. pulling out what is at stake here what happens if it unravels. i think if it unravels then the international community will looking for another way of solving they spent given the list tough rhetoric that would be a very worrying situation the security implications are serious for not just for iran but for the whole region of course iran is involved in the conflict in yemen and also the situation in syria and so on so you know who knows what they might do if they're sort of unleashed in this way there are also economic implications here as well germany all the european countries would like to be able to trade with iran . and of course u.s.
3:17 pm
sanctions mean the moment they're not doing nor able to do that they're trying to set up payments scheme a banking sort of work around to allow them to allow european companies to trade there but it's not really clear fact can actually ultimately be successful all right our political correspondent simon young with us thank you simon. turkey has started flooding a dam on the to grist river today despite criticism from a local community that has directly affected the town house on cape and south east turkey was one of the 1st places human settled along the tigris river the filling of the illicit dam will completely submerged the ancient town and it's a storage ruins thousands of people have been uprooted to a newly built town to make way for the down feed at audubon used to tend to the garden off the small guest house every day people who stayed here could enjoy his home grown fruits and vegetables he always felt he would lose more than his guesthouse with the construction of the dam home of verbs and they don't think
3:18 pm
about how they will be changing our lives and our cultural heritage but that's what concerns us most losing a whole culture that's why we have freedom of the world continues across the. guest houses in the ancient town office and kids over 12000 years ago it was one of the 1st human settlements on the banks of the tigris river. the elusive dam is about 60 kilometers south east of here planned as early as 1950 s. the dams purpose is to produce hydro electric power but from the beginning there was opposition to the project local residents like more at stake in try to have it stopped. yeah needed to know your model of them and always say yes that would generate electricity you know only of what could be gained by flipping a place like this. but this dam will produce just one percent of the energy that
3:19 pm
turkey needs from the thing that they're going to. be in there's. about 50000 people who lose their homes to the dam most have been resettled in a new town along with some of the historical monuments. to secure his livelihood feel as article important part of land for a new hotel in the new town. i'm going to take up everything here and take the soil with me or that's the only way anything will grow here it's like container gardening. shop owners in the old town center also have to start from scratch hasn't he if was a popular day trip destination for tourists merchants like more that are here and now worry about how they'll earn a living. or they would have paid is far too little compensation they tell us we can buy new shops in the new town and pay them off in installments but how
3:20 pm
there's no work for us though i live in. an old arabic poem from the region say's these treasures show that we have existed if they are lost the memory of their creators will also disappear as an keeps residents fear that this age old saying could prove true. a nationwide strike against sudan's military rulers has entered its 2nd day most shops and khartoum remain closed but reports now say life is slowly coming back to the capital opposition leaders are urging people to stay home to protest a deadly crackdown last week when security forces violently broke up opposition sit ins army chiefs have stepped up their troops presence in the streets to counteract protests of the demonstrators are pressuring the army to hand over power to civilian. trauma these protests internet in sudan has also been disrupted again he has been looking into this force and joins us in our studio maya
3:21 pm
tell us more about this well what we're looking at suny is blackouts basically near total blockages of any information coming in or out of sudan this is as reported by an internet observatory group called the net blocks they've been investigating this we saw some partial disruptions as of monday of last week targeting specific providers focused mostly on mobile data we can see this huge dip in this graph right here and this these outages were happening at the same time as when there were reports of protesters being shot at pro-democracy sit ins in khartoum and then after this monday by mid week last week the blackouts and spread across the entire country now targeting all internet providers nearly all mobile access and we saw with that graph that huge disrupt internet activity which means now access everywhere has been descript skinny disrupted so we're looking at this near total restriction of any information in or out of the country and all of this is happening at the same time as there are more and more reports coming out of attacks
3:22 pm
on pro-democracy protesters we now know that around 100 people have been killed in these pro-democracy sit and that is troubling and we should say it is not the 1st time that internet has been disrupted in sudan these protests began what is that absolutely not we saw from december through april there was kind of these rolling out. digits of access to social media whatsapp instagram facebook twitter were all taken out the longest consecutive disruption was 60 days between december and february when there was no access to any of these services and this is all happening as traditional media is also being censored and full access was finally restored on april 11th which is coincidentally the day when omar al bashir the former ruler of sudan stepped down all right so what are some of the reactions to this we've seen a lot of sudanese ex-pats have been taking to twitter under the hash tag on the sudan revolution to try to spread the word about exactly what is happening we see
3:23 pm
this tweet here in the sudan revolution because sudanese people set an example that we can do better we can move forward the struggle they are going through speaks volumes for what liberal or liberation really is and what it really means to want better living conditions because that's what we deserve just trying to raise the alarm and really alert international governments to try to. pressure the sudan government another one here my people cannot die in vain they cannot die in silence under an internet blackout because peaceful protest was met with a massacre because my people deserve dignity deserve freedom and deserve for the world to know us and our fight sunni we have to remember that social media was really one of the only ways and certainly the easiest way the sudanese people could get information out about what was happening in their country because the media was being censored but so far unfortunately we've seen no clear statements from anyone else denouncing this blackout or supporting the pro-democracy protesters and this is all coming in as there are more reports saying that the sudanese people are not
3:24 pm
