totable about reopening this shut down. >> all right, thank you. reporting for us from washington. >> former pakistani president has been arrested once again. he is accused of ordered commandos to storm islamabads red mosque in 2007. he is also accused in the case of former prime minister's assassination. on wednesday, his lawyer said he was cleared to lead the country after being granted bail in three other cases. >> pakistan's former military ruler is rearrested at his farmhouse where he has been detained for over six months a new case was registered just a month ago on the orders of a judge implicates him in odder eking the attack on the red mosque in which a number of people were

killed in 27. the former military rulers lawyers were jube lent about the fact that their client has been granted bail in three important cases against him. and as such that he was able to move around the country, as well as go out of the country, that, of course, will now be a difficult thing. the former military ruler is likely to spend more time at his farmhouse where he had been under deception. his lawyers of course are saying there will be appealing for bail. he may be granted bail, because he already had been granted bail in three more important cases against him. however, for the moment, it would end all speculation that the former military ruler was planning to leave the country. >> he was held for several hours on thursday after he was taken from his hotel room.

2:10 pm
ambassador told reporters will be extremely hard, one factor is the presence of the hordes resistence army. that group that first started in uganda in parts of the c.a.r. >> the country is 3,000-kilometers square, we now that the terrorist group is -- is using the eastern part of the country as a strong hold. so obviously, the challenges are important. >> the new resolution gives the secretary general 30 days to come one a full report on the situation inside the country. of african troops into a u.n. peace keeping mission. >> still ahead on the al jazeera news hour, the u.s. suspends hundreds of millions in aid to egypt, cairo says it won't surrender to pressure. >> in southern why so

2:12 pm
a kind of dealing into the past, and wondered what caused it. >> 16 years on and his symptoms have developed and learned not to second guess them. >> you can't really take anything for granted. the condition changes day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute. depending on stress, anxiety, whether or not your medications are working. they all play their part. and no two days are the same. and no two peel with parkinsons are the same either. >> understanding the puzzle, is a huge challenge. but scientists at the university of lester are hailing what they are calling a turning point. they have been looking at the root causes of such conditions. clutches an normally shaped proteins when they
2:13 pm
appear the body often reacts by killing off nerve cells, leaving the person with loss of memory and function. but the researchers have shown that by giving an experimental drug they can stop the body from attacking brain cells. at the moment this has only been achieved in mice. human trials are five to ten years off, but campaigners are watching closely. >> i think it is important we are talking about this important scientific finding, but we must always bear in mind that it could be a long time before we get any success in patients and we know this is very difficult, and unfortunately many attempts to fail on the way. we have a long way to go still, i'm afraid. >> but the news gives hope to many people living with diseases like the one bob has. >> i think hope is the biggest ally you've got. because without thaw yo have nothing. >> al jazeera. >> europe is set to be sinking into a period of deepening poverty.
2:14 pm
that's according to a new report by the reds cross societies which studies the effects of the economic crisis and policies. well the survey carred 52 countries from the european union, the ball kins and eastern europe. a 75% increase in the number of people receiving food aid during the past three years. and of the more than 26 million unemployed 11 million have been out of work for longer than a year. well, earlier i spoke with the european director for the international red cross, that she explained how many families are stuck in a collective dispair. >> today we can say that the crisis has taken root, at household level, at community level, and at national level. what we are seeing is that in some countries today we have an
2:15 pm
unemployment rate of more than 60%. with these households where a whole family has to live on the income, and maybe from a grandmother or grandfather. and that means that the situation at households level is radically changed since the outset of the crisis in 2008. >> the crisis very hugely felt in greece where unemployment continues to climb, and many blame partial stairty for the country's crippling recession. figures shows that the job less rate reaches 27.6 in july. that translates into more than 1.3 million people being out of work. which cuts access to
2:16 pm
services like healthcare, for people who can't prove that they have a right to be in the country. yet it is becoming difficult for migrants to get support. they reported that doctors are increasingly demanding a passport and proof of resident before they agree to treatments. slur young people like this young man are unable to see a doctor. >> women who are pregnant, don't access care until very late. there is a case of a woman who gave birth by herself on the bathroom floor of her hotel. putting their health at great risk. >> things like this have happened before the flag ship immigration bill.
2:17 pm
under the plans some migrants would have to pay upfront into the health service. more dramatically, the same legislation would deport people convicted of a crime before they have the right to appeal so they can't put down roots and then claim they have the right to stay. the current government has promised that it would cut net migration levels to the tens of thousands and clearly you can't do that without trying things that have never really been attempted before, of course many people say it isn't very liberal, that migrants are a boom rather than a burden. these things says the government about fair, and widespread public mood. >> for most people who are out there, hardworking paying into the system, they will say it is not fair that people can carry on living here illegal, come in and use our public services. it is a national health
2:18 pm
service, not an international health service. >> yet some activists say the aim is to destroy universal rights. >> the government is tries to break a consensus around entitlements for all, regardless of status in the u.k. you know it's actually we are seeing a much more devicive politic coming over when it comes to employment, and opportunities in the u.k. that are resulting in creating second class citizens. >> what is undeniable is that many migrants are being sent a mes is sag. >> well, meanwhile the influx of migrants into europe continues and people living on the italian -- or island are demanding quick action. this following a promise
2:19 pm
from the e.u. of an extra $40 million to help deal with the thousands of asylum seekers that are arriving. last thursday, hundreds died and many are still missing after a migrant boat sank. >> well, refugee advocates say the ship wrecked victims are part of a worldwide crisis which shows no signs of easing. more signs on that now. >> barbara, in fact most of the migrants were from somalia, the coastal town is often chosen by african migrants trying to cross illegally into europe. >> the united nations set it up in 2011, when thousands of refugees set the conflict there. the u.n. left in june, some people were given more that are $1,000 to move.
2:20 pm
but some of the refugees chose to intend the cash on illegal boats to europe. there is concern here some of the former residents may have died off the coast last week. a few hundred people turned down the money, and decided to stay. >> i would like to get a better life. but i don't know how to get it. because without food and medicine, so how i can get a better life. i don't know. >> tanzania is closest to italy, but many are leaving on boats like this because there's less security there. they have been drifting for days. >> tanzanians are leaving too. he made fit this coastline and then to france. but returned after he couldn't find work.
2:21 pm
mo ham mad wanted to try his luck again. >> when we got there i felt like i crossed the seas and then i went back home with nothing. i didn't achieve anything there, i really regret coming home. >> in 2011, the italians made a deal with the government to deport illegal tans kneian immigrants. >> they think they would find a big deal, they expect to find money easily there, a lot of people manage to get lucky, and others not so lucky. >> more than 5,000s have made it to europe since january this year, but the weather is about to change. and as is seas get more choppy, fewer boats will be attempting this dangerous journey.
2:22 pm
there are so many reasons why asylum seekers will continue to risk their lives for a chance to live in europe. the special tribunal investigating the assassination of lebanon's former prime minister has identified a new suspect. the court has indicted on charges of terrorism and intentional homicide. four members were charged in 2011, with plotting the attack, but have not been arrested. egypt has criticized a u.s. decision to suspend hundreds of millions of dollars in aid. the state department says the interim government must show progress towards democracy if itn't ways funding to resume. u.s. secretary of state says the suspension to
2:23 pm
egypt does not mean that relations two enthe two are being cut. while several nations have recently prompted financial support to egypt, on wednesday, kuwait announced an offer of $4 billion in aid. just the day before, the u.a.e.el promises $3,000,000,000.1 billion is a grant and $2 billion in interest free loan. but the biggest package comes from saudi arabia and that's $5 billion made up of a mixture of cash and free oil. eric theyser from the washington institute and he is joining us out of washington. so, practically what difference does this suspension of aid mean by washington, when you see the numbers that are being promised by countries like the gulf to egypt. >> the aid is not really what it does to the
2:24 pm
capabilities, and in fact, the aid cut is really not even that large, it is $260 million, of course all of those offers from the gulf that you mentions are much larger than $1.3 billion. the point of the aid cut is to send the message that the u.s. administration is very dissatisfied with the way it has handled the post period. my own view is that dissatisfaction is certainly well placed. the killing of 1,000 egyptians has been very unacceptable. but at the same time, the way in which this is being communicated to the military, is quite poorly timed. >> well, yeah, eric, i wanted to ask you, why, in fact, the u.s. is doing this at this particular point, do they just want to show, in fact, that they are doing something? and the government as well has come out and said they won't surrender to any american pressure, so does this actually really put them under any
2:25 pm
sort of pressure? >> i fear that it doesn't. aid is a very specific kind of tool, military eight is really the kind of tool that is yeah used to build a strategic relationship. it gives access -- overflight rights it is an important component of the broadest relationship, it's not typically a good teal for promoting democracy, it is not an democratic actor. with the hope that it will get them to act in a way that is not in a position, doesn't make a whole lot of sense. >> and eric, you mentions that the u.s. has it's own interests in egypt. keeping the security in the sinai swell the navy bases, would the u.s. do anything to jeopardize it's own interests.
2:26 pm
>> you would hope not, and i think that exactly what this aid cut for the relationship really remains to be seen in the coming days and months. how long does this cut last, is really an open questioning. of course, according to the road map, i think this was to have a referendum on a new constitution by december at the latest. so hopefully they will meet that time line, and if they do, hopefully the aid will resume. >> all right, eric, thank you very much, that's eric trigger speaking to us from washington. here with the al jazeera news hour and still ahead, a climate of fear in international labor group demands more protection for migrant workers and the winner about this week's nobel prize for literature, and you will find out which team prevailed in baseball's sudden death series. details are coming up in sports.

2:37 pm
been accused of murdererring unarmed civil lewding and destroying hundreds of homes. >> at the institute for policies studying so you heard there, what the rebels are accused of doing, the u.n. also very concerned about what is going on there with the reports of rapes and killings and lewdings. the u.n. had pass this, what does it mean for the central african republic? >> toe bring attention to this issue, that really is falling off the radar. the issue of the humanitarian concerns with civilians being targeted, reports of rape and real kind of looting going on in communitying and also people being force out of their homes. so there is a dramatic need to pay attention. and i think the security
2:38 pm
council basically said, let's commit to an election with a timetable, in a set period of time, 18 months to try to bring long stem stability to the republic, let's rep, the country became independent in 1960. you had military leaders dominating the scene throughout that period. and now, there is an opportunity for the central african public to regain its footing to put the needs of the people first. >> the revolution also chalks back, and new peace keeping forces heavily involves elsewhere including somalia. so can they get enough support for the mission? >> well, i think there is a need to support the
2:39 pm
i.u. and the resolution does that. there is also a commitment to within the 30 day period have imafen date and a timeframe in place, to transition from an african union to a lounger peace keeping force. so there is clear support for the union force, but there's an understanding that whether you go from the 1800 there, or the 3600 that are expected to be there, it is still insufficient. and there needs to be longer term support through u.n. long team mission on the ground. that's what the resolution calls for. >> do you see a case of somali style intervention, the way the french going in as they did in mali? >> well, i think clearly we recognize that foreign intervention has it's long term implications. these unintended consequences whether it's mali, or libya, the consequences are severe. so that is quite frankly
2:40 pm
a last resort and should not be a resort that's being pushed forward now. i think there is some concern, that because the central african republic is a former french colony there will be a similar path of very-handed french intervention. and i think the african union is advancing a different path, and that path brings not only peace keepers but a political process that will deal with the long term needs of the people of the central african republic. >> it was good to talk to you, thank you. >> my pleasure, thank you. >> let's cross back to barbara in london now with more news from europe. >> a legal challenge is being mounted against the re-election of az exrbijan's president. pictures emerged online on wednesday, which appear to support
