deal is a victory for them movement. celebrations in the capital khartoum as a political standoff deescalate in a gesture of peace sudan's ruling military freed more than $200.00 rebel fighters who are part of the country's opposition a step towards reconciliation one rebel leader praised their release. well i mean the image is that it shows clearly that the army and the forces are our partners and not our enemy. when sure with the cooperation and the understanding we will meet the demands of the sudanese people the services that those demands are 1st civilian rule it's been the heart of the conflict which began after the military ousted long time leader omar al bashir activists called for a transition to a civilian government an impasse ensued and then bloodshed in june security forces
opened fire on a protest camp in the capital leaving more than $100.00 dead but after a month the warring sides were at the table again in power sharing talks mediated by the african union and ethiopia after 2 days a breakthrough was announced. and government you mentioned isn't the 2 parties have agreed to share the sovereign council equally between the military and civilian for the period of at least 3 years. with the they have also agreed on an independent civilian government under the leadership of the prime minister. in a further sign of healing they also agreed to launch a national independent investigation into the deaths of the sudanese who were killed in the fight for democracy. and they don't use i.e.
bergen joins me in the studio now for some analysis i you have reported extensively from sudan for us tell us about the significance of this deal it's a significant deal in that it is actually it is the culmination of about 2 and a half months of this uncertainty between the protesters and the military and negotiations that have been going on and off since the removal of ahmed bashir on. 11 the but this is by no means the 1st time that it looks like the military council and the protesters have reached a deal there were many ups and downs in this almost 3 month period with the military sometimes backing away from. big concessions at the very last minute so it remains to be seen if the deal will actually hold however this is the 1st time that we have a deal that is a result of a mediation before that it was the military council and the protest leaders negotiating directly with each other but this is the 1st fruit of the african union
and the ethiopian mediators and then the most important thing to remember the most significant thing about this deal is that this is not this is by no stretch of the imagination a civilian civilian rule because there might be confusion people went out demanding civilian rule what people are telling me isn't that what they want this is a power sharing agreement that may or may not lead to civilian rule in a couple of years following the culmination of the transitional period but that remains to be seen ok so potentially a good 1st step as you say you're in touch with people in sudan what are they saying do they have confidence that this is going in the right direction so before we get into what people are saying it's important to remember that all of this this entire negotiation is happening with a near internet blackout that affects most of the people in sudan and the internet was cut off by the state and so the state obviously has command of the of the of the official channels of communications of state media with that being said we
were able to reach some people on the ground and the reactions have been mixed there's a general feeling that it's a compromise but there were no other options that the forces of freedom change how to realize that any kind of agreement would have to involve the military and that some compromise needs to needed to be. reached and that the t.m.c. had to be included which. which was not always the aspiration of the of the protest movement but there are people that are disappointed and you know they are disappointed to still see to still see the faces that have that were prominent in the bashir era whether it's amityville commander or brown who is the head of the transitional military military council there's also in the important clause in this agreement that is to investigate the atrocities on the streets but then there are big question marks about whether the people of bet are allegedly complicit in these atrocities can investigate themselves how fair would that be and as as we've been
saying it remains to be seen if this agreement will hold because at any time the military still commands the power to basically call it off and take power completely aren't even thanks so much. now to some of the other stories making news around the world turkish authorities say 3 people have been killed in a car bomb in the south of the country turkish president type that one said the victims were syrians inside the vehicle the blast occurred near the town of rain on the syrian border. at least 190 bodies have been recovered from a mass grave in syria where the so-called islamic state once had its stronghold the grave near the city of raka contain the bodies of men and women who are likely stoned to death by us militants. iran has condemned the seizure of one of its oil tankers off the british territory of gibraltar bordering southern spain on

a good commission chief. i'm joined now by our political correspondent thomas sparrow thomas why this skepticism about wilson a funded lion was in the fonda lion is germany's minister of defense on a such she is in charge of a extremely difficult and controversial ministry this is a ministry that is but has been criticized time and time again because of the state of the forces here in germany the criticisms relate to the readiness to the capability of the armed forces on a such as a reform the line has also been criticised although it's important to stress to some of the problems she inherited this is a role that in many cases has been described as korea so depending on what your position is on was it on the line you may think that she has done a good job given the circumstances or she hasn't done enough to change things in the bundesliga so that said that's one issue why germans may be skeptical about her
she's also facing an investigation into spending irregularities and i think many germans are also not happy about her nomination because of the way that she was nominated in the end not having been on the ballot during the european elections if she does get the top job with that allow her to skate full of controversy at home or would it follow her to brussels do you think. i would say a bit of both in a way she will be able to escape because her roles in brussels will change she will have other priorities to deal with at the same time when you look back on her career you always have to consider washee did and what you didn't do as head of the defense ministry just as you would also look as well i did watch she achieved or didn't achieve when she led previous ministries such as the labor ministry or the family ministry let's not forget that it was rough on the lion has been the only minister since 2005 in other words since i'm going to started chancery there has been throughout that period with i'm going to merkel so she is
a politician that has enough experience at the german level and she will try to take that experience but she would also take all the controversies with her to brussels if elected by the european parliament like a now we have also been looking at german voters think should be responsible for selecting the e.u. commission boss and during the european elections in may funded lion was not a candidate for the job now there is a sense amongst many germans that government leaders made a backroom deal instead of choosing one of the candidates nominated by their parliamentary group for the commission president's job and the pollsters are asked who should choose the president of the european commission should it be the heads of government all the european parliament 21 percent feel that government should have the final say but an overwhelming majority of 71 percent say the european parliament should decide who will lead the commission. so tell us what do you make
of these the think is the german seem to be opposed to deals like the one that we we saw this week on this description of a backroom deal is one of the key reasons as well where people are skeptical about the off on the line or in particular about the nomination future head of the european commission this this idea here in germany that those backroom deals affect european legitimacy that they affect. european democracy and by the way that is something that has been backed by important political parties here in germany like the social democrats they have rejected outright was enough on the lines nomination with those arguments that i have just mentioned there's also and it's also important to stress another side of the story those who believe that the heads of government heads of state do have the rights and do have the responsibility to present those nominations after all they are themselves elected leaders and they also have responsibility such an although the european elections are european they do also have a very important national component so it's important to see what both sides of the
story reveal in this particular case but this is such only one of the reasons why people are not very convinced about was enough on the lines i mean nation all right some asperity thanks so much. mult has agreed to take in dozens of migrants rescued by a humanitarian charity vessel in the mediterranean the boat is carrying 55 migrants who were rescued off the libyan coast in return a silly will take 55 of the migrants currently sheltering in malta and the move diffuses a brewing standoff between the charity mediterranean and italy's populist interior minister who refused to allow the boat to dock in italy. those in greece go to the polls this sunday and i snap general election prime minister alexis the press is battling to hold on to his job off to implementing austerity measures demanded by european credit says many greeks
