10:00 am
>> welcome to the news hour. from aljazeera's news centers, these are the main stories. outrage as young women in egypt sentenced to years in prison. >> in london with the news, including e.u. leaders trying to get ukraine dance i go to their tune, not russias, but moscow seems to have the better news. >> in belgium, change in the route to die law.
10:01 am
>> in the florida keys, influence release genetically modified mosquitoes have local residents deeply concerned. >> welcome to the program. human rights groups have criticized the sentences given to 14 young egyptian woman for protesting against the government. the women were sentenced to more than 11 years in prison wednesday. they've been charged with thuggery, and destruction of public and private property. the girls held a protest in alexandria on the 31 of october calling for president morsi's rein state. hundreds protested in a show of solidarity for those charged. the government's announced it will stop anyone defying new anti protests allows. they say the laws protect the rights of society.
10:02 am
we have more from cairo. there's rising anger over the jail sentences given to these young girls. is this likely to explode on to the streets, do you think? >> well, it's certainly exploded on the campuses and universities today in cairo university. you had a large turnout of students who were decrying what happened to these girls and were also protesting against the law. security forces did use water cannon and tear gas to disperse those students. there were clashes. we still don't have any report of the casualties or detentions. this may very well happen. we just have to wait. it is an uproar, because egyptians watched the pictures of these 14 girls all looking so young, dressed in without a, standing very calmly and smiling while they were being handed out one of the harshest sentences egyptians have heard about.
10:03 am
>> human rights groups criticized the sentences as madness, but the government remains resolute in defending this controversial new law. where is all of this going? >> well, that's actually the big question here. the government does have support from a section of the population who just wants to get on with their lives who see that now there's a law and everybody should abide by the law if you want this country to move on, but the people who are protesting say no, this is not what we went down to the streets for back in 2011, and again this year. they say we called for freedom and social justice and that's what we want. they see that the government is being weak at the momentum in the sense that it has to back the security forces and its repressive measures. they say that's not the way they're going to build a country and say also in this scenario
10:04 am
where there has been no accountability for anyone who has committed any crime against the protestors over the past three years, they will go down to prosecutor test. they say also that they don't need permission to express their point of view, certainly not by an interim government that they brought to power. i think you see some cracks in the government simply because if you justify go back two days ago, while the protestors were in front of the upper house of parliament, because assembly was meeting inside and actually suspended this work, about 13 members. it could be very difficult as the country is soon going to vote for the new constitution. we just heard the committee saying today that by today's
10:05 am
end, they would have finished the final draft, and soon they will start voting on that it. >> all right, there in cairo, thank you. >> tie land's prime minister is urging protestors to call off their demonstrations. there has been no let up and the protestors insist they're bringing down her government. we report from bangkok where thousands are on the streets, some occupying government buildings. >> security has been weak throughout this series of protests, but as expected at the ministry of defense, the military and police were well prepared. day by day, the protestors have been making their presence felt at government ministries. when they arrived at the defense headquarters, they told those inside that they were armed only with their trademark whistles and flowers. their goal is to force the government out and introduce political reform. >> if you ask me how long we can
10:06 am
keep doing this, we will continue until the people get their victory. >> this was a largely symbolic visit, an attempt to show solidarity with the military which is a powerful force in thailand. the prime minister easily survived a vote of no confidence. the result was never in doubt. the coalition partners have a comfortable majority in the house. >> there had been speculation that the prime minister would dissolve parliament after the vote and call an election, knowing that she and her party would likely win again. she's now ruled that on you, has to look at other ways to try to end the protests. >> the prime minister that repeatedly made pleas for talks. >> no matter what we do, we still do not know the solution to what the protestors want and what the approaches might be. if w we have a chance to talk, o discuss, please call off the protests for the country's peace and for the thai people's
10:07 am
happiness. i'm begging you, the protestors, because this doesn't make the situation any better. >> the protest leaders have so far refused to agree to meet government representatives. the prime minister's best option appears to be wait and hope the rallies lose momentum. aljazeera, bangkok. >> let's talk to florence lewis live in the thai capitol, bangkok. bring us occupy to date with what's happening on the streets. so far, the army hasn't been fully deployed. is it likely to stay that way, florence? >> the prime minister doesn't intend to use force to break up the rallies. the protests are entering their sixth straight do you. the protestors meanwhile seemed to have upped the ante a little bit. they cut the power supply to the main police headquarters today in bangkok, forcing them to rely
10:08 am
on back up generators. the police have an arrest warrant out for the top protest leader, but they've made no attempt to detain him, even though he's been leading marches in the city. this gloves you an indication of how keen they are to avoid confrontation that could potentially turn violent, bearing in mind that the last tile street protests this big happened in thailand was in 2010 when more than 90 people were killed. >> there had been speculation that parliament would be dissolved, that's not going to happen. how is the government likely to resolve this cries, do you think? >> well, she has repeatedly made pleas to negotiate with protestors. now all her office have been shot down. in fact, the leader of the opposition said today that they will not have any dialogue with the prime minister, because she has no legitimacy and because
10:09 am
her government oh is corrupt. the other option is really to kind of wait this out in the hopes that they will -- the protest will eventually fizzle out. can she afford to do that? it's clear these protests are already having some effect on on the day to day running of the government activities. now in this government building, we've been told that 70% of staff are on leave because protestors have occupied the building. one thing in her favor is the fact that the king's birthday celebration is coming up in a week's time. she hopes that because he's so highly respected, that protestors because in some form of respect will clear the streets and government buildings. protestors intend to make a big push in the next two to three days. it could be interesting in the days ahead. >> sri lanka announced a consist to find out how many died in decades of civil war.
10:10 am
hundreds of thousands of people are believed to have been killed between 1982 and 1999. estimates say 40,000 people are killed in a matter of weeks. after months of international pressure, the sri lankaen government will survey thousands of village in the next six months to compile an if i believe record. many people are not convinced the survey is credible. >> this culls amid it is mounding international pressure on the sri lankaen government to carry out a credible independent investigation into what happened in the last stages of the con flick in 2009. now, there are occasions that 40,000 civilians were killed in the last stages of the conflict with many fingers pointed to the military. the government has denied this and said it has nothing to hide.
10:11 am
it has set various physician and made accusations, but will reveal the two facts. critics argue that this is again another process launched by the government and that is lacks credibility, but the government has said that they should be trusted, that they have very capable people, and that they are going to carry this out and bring out the truth. in one month, keep an eye on the government being put on notice by the international community that it must deliver on accountability. >> lots more still to come on the news hour, including gaza's raw sewage problem causing a sting. how did it get to this dangerous level. >> a day after italy's prime minister is expelled, we see what the people on the street are saying.

10:17 am
>> main mood was not of celebration. never theless, it was a good da. >> still has all the trappings of official power, but inside, even his supporters say that he is a disappointed man. he must now redefine his role in italian public life. >> in the senate, i found that mr. berlusconi's supporters are loyal to their disgraced leader. >> he is still relevant in italian politics, because there is a number of italians who still see him as the one who can defeat the last at the polls as he did in the past and the opinion polls say that we are leading, this is why he's till alive. >> whether he is finished politically or not, it's
10:18 am
unlikely italy will get what it really needs, a strong government that can unit people along difficult reforms. >> syria's biggest oil field is now being run by fighters linked to al-qaeda. they seized the field after heavy fighting last week. aljazeera has visited the facility and talked with rebels who say they've started uprighting parts of the installation. >> armed and ready, these exclusive aljazeera pictures showifying on the front on the syria's largest oil field. the al-qaeda group that in the eastern outskirts of the province after fighting last week. >> after intense fighting, the army pulled out into the direction of the iraq border, saying we imposed our control in
10:19 am
the field and seized seven tanks and light weapons. >> the loss of the oil field leaves bashar al assad's government cut off from almost all of syria's oil reserves. gas fields are concentrated in the mostly held muslim north and east. here in addition to the oil well, there's a natural gas field and power plant, providing energy for the majority of the provinces eastern suburbs. the rebels say they'll resume operations at most of the facilities. >> we allowed the staff to return to work. all installations will come under the protection to safeguard it against looting and sabotage. >> looters aren't the only threat. the regime's air force continues to target the area. the rebels have so far escaped unharmed but some oil storage tanks have been hit. seizing control of the field was a major achievement for the rebels, but will test their ability to run such vital
10:20 am
incidents lakes. >> there's an unpleasant stench in garza as raw sewage floods the streets. the largest waste water treatment facility has stopped working. it's been hit by power cuts caused by fuel shortages. >> you can smell the problem gaza faces, even if it is harder to see it in the dark. raw assuming flowing through the streets, straight into homes. >> the sewage is everywhere. it's inside our house. we don't know where to go. >> sandbags are the only defense. there is no way of pumping the waste out. that needs electricity, which needs fuel and there is little of that here. the power station has been closed. ever since egypt's president was removed earlier this year, hundreds of smuggling sun necessaries that would bring fuel in have been destroyed. supplies are running out, patience disappeared long ago.
10:21 am
>> our children are sick and we can't afford to stay like this. >> this is where the sewage would normally be treated, but as you can see, there is no treatment happening now. the equipment has all been turned off. the sewage is still arriving, but if it's not being pumped into the streets and straight out to sea, there's nowhere else for it to go. what you don't get a sense of unless you're here is the smell. it is absolutely horrendous. it's also really hot. disease is going to spread. in these conditions, it's unlikely to take long. >> the hospitals are not immune from the crippling power cuts, six hours on, 12 ours off. they switch emergency generators on when the power disappears, but doctors are frightened. a surge from an unreliable generator could break these sensitive incubators instantly and that is the last thing these babies need. >> that will put this baby in
10:22 am
danger. especially you see the monitors on. we have very small, tiny baby. we have babies 800-gram. these babies are sensitive for any electricity. >> nightfall comes and the lights go. it's up to car head lamps to show the way. that and candles, whole families have to live and work around one flickering flame. gaza has few options. it can buy fuel from the palestinian authority coming from israel. officials say it is taxed too much and this territory just can't afford to pay. thursday, the u.n. swept into town by convoy with news, turkey has come to the rescue albeit temporarily with emergency supplies, but there is no full solution here yet. >> that doesn't resolve the crisis, the fuel crisis in gaza,
10:23 am
but it did provide a safety net. we hope for the coming two to three months. >> as the lights go out for another night, the assuming will be back. the desperation never goes away. the people of gaza will remain hopeful, resourceful. they have little choice otherwise. aljazeera, gaza. >> a french nigerian footballer locked in detention for 17 months is finally being allowed to lee the gulf state. in june, 2012, he filed against the football club. management existed he would not be issued an exit permit unless he dropped the case. they worked with authorities to resolve the dispute. >> 54 people accused in treason will appear in court on friday, saying the country has failed to honor one of the founding documents. they are referring to a 1964 treaty with the monarchy, which
10:24 am
had a strong influence over a large part of zambia. it became the western province after the king signed an agreement joining the rest of the region in the new independent zambia. in a report, many say the treaty's promise of autonomy was never honored. >> this is zambia's western province, once the center of a man arcky and british protectorate that joined rode each is that in 1964 to form modern zambia. many now want that union to split. in august, dozens were arrested and accused of treason. they say the president broke an election promise to restore the agreement of 1964, a treaty recognizing the king of the people that allowed for some autonomy. a leading separatist told me they wouldn't rule out force to get what they want. >> the best means is that of
10:25 am
political education and diplomatic. this is a natural course of events. >> they honor their king in ancient kerr moneys. they won't be able to chart their own course politically and demand a fair share of the countries mineral wealth. a new constitution being drafted will further undermine the official place in must. >> although they see the best option is for us to keep living in harmony with our brothers and sisters in northern reddish is that has failed in the last 49 years. >> many say the government has neglected them. it wounded comment because of the court case, but there are signs it's listening. motorists are being asked what improvements can be made. >> the government's working on giving more power, placating
10:26 am
some separatists, but say it won't make a special case of any one province and seems it won't tolerate unrest. >> this man is afraid to speak freely. this woman is also p.m. the situation is devastating. what kind of leadership do we have with no mercy. we're terrified the police will come back. >> some people here would happily settle for more investment from government, others want a separate tate. it may be a sensitive the issue, but it is not going away. aljazeera, zambia. >> time for a short break here on the news hour. when we come back, don't rain on my parade. we are live in new york with the annual thanksgiving celebrations. >> in sport, the scandal that has now spread to english football. stay with us.
10:27 am
at hand and just in the nick of at hand and just in the nick of time. time. >> thousands of new yorkers are >> thousands of new yorkers are marching in solidarity. marching in solidarity. >> we're following multiple >> we're following multiple developments on syria at this developments on syria at this hour. hour. >> every hour from reporters >> every hour from reporters stationed around the world and stationed around the world and across the country. across the country. >> only on al jazeera america. >> only on al jazeera america. power power of the people until we restore of the people until we restore ou

10:30 am
>> trying persuade the ukrainian president about changing miss mind about a trade agreement. thousands of protestors demand a deal with the e.u. >> prime minister urging protestors to call off demonstrations. >> let's get more on the news in egypt. a court sentenced 14 young women for protesting against the government. we'll talk to the human rights watch and see have a kaz for the middle east and north africa division, joining us from cairo
10:31 am
via skype. >> some describe the sentences as madness. what's your assessment of the jail terms? >> it's shocking. it's shocking to hand down the sentence to a group of women and excuse them of belonging to a terrorist organization oh when all that they've done according to many witnesses that were there was to stage a peaceful protest in alex andrea. what's shocking with this is not only how harsh the sentence is but the fact that seven gills are actually under 18, so under international law, these are children that are going to be head in juvenile detention centers until they are 18. at least this is what the sentence says for now. >> under egyptian rule of law, the girls have committed a crime. the government said this rule is required to bring back stability to the country. >> this sentence has been given
10:32 am
under an old law from 1923. it's not even the newly adopted law. how many rights group have considered it extremely restrictive. this can be seen in the larger framework of a lot of restrictions imposed on the right of people to protest in a country that for the past three years has changed a lot of things since the protest. >> how much of these sentences perhaps an indication that the government's becoming much bolder in cracking down on dissent? are we seeing the emergence of a police state as some observers seem to suggest? >> we are seeing surely a lot of restrictions on people's ability to organize, mobilize, to voice opinions. we speak today about these girls, but two days ago, there was also an attempt to break a demonstration that had nothing to do with the muslim
10:33 am
brotherhood, some protestings the military trial of civilians. there's a willingness on the part of authorities to curb any mobilization for protest, even peaceful ones by egyptian people. >> as you were saying there tomorrow, we understand the youngest of these girls have been sent to a juvenile detention center. what sort of conditions, then, are they likely to face there, and they have not what happens to them when they turn 18? >> what the sentence says and again, this is according to their lawyers, the sentence says that for the girls under 18, they will be in juvenile detention centers this will they're 18 and when they're 18, their sentences will be evaluated, so it is less vague. >> thank you for talking to aljazeera. >> stuffed turkey, family gatherings, traveling and shopping all things to mark the annual public holiday in america. i'm talking about thanksgiving day. hundred was braving cold winds to take part or watch giant
10:34 am
floats of cartoon characters parading through the streets. 15 million people are expected to tune in and batch the parade on t.v. thanksgiving day is a day of appreciating the blessings of the harvest. let's go to the parade in new york. we understand the parade nearly didn't happen the way it was supposed to. tell us more. >> you're absolutely right. it's been a very big news story here in the united states because what happened was there was a very bad storm that came in right over the top of us here last night. exactly as predictioned, it went over the top, then the temperatures plummeted. it's sunny, but really, really cold. the problem is the winds. here in the united states there is a law in new york that says you can't fly these big balloons that they have in the macy's thanksgiving day parade if the wind is blowing too strongly.
10:35 am
the decision was made to fly the 16 big character balloons that you're seeing go by. they are hugely popular here in the united states. indeed, thanksgiving and macy's thanksgiving day parade is such a tradition, people turn out in the millions here. 3.5 million people are lining the route right now, 15 million watching it on t.v. the workers when they started the macy's company, this is a huge shop, they were all immigrants and wanted to recognize their new country and give thanks to their new country, so this parade was started. today, there are 8,000 volunteervolunteers on on the ta half mile course of the parades, there are, i think from memory, 16 big balloons, 30 smaller ones, 11 marching bands, 1600 majorettes and cheerleaders and 900 clowns. the clowns have all been to the
10:36 am
maizy's clown university. it's a very big day. >> in a rare coincidence this year, thanksgiving overlaps with the jewish holiday of hanukkah, and that's given rise to a rather strange name. >> absolutely. i know, this is great. americans love to give names to everything. they're worse than the israelis for that. they've come up with thanksgivukkah. hanukkah, for jewish marries, not only is it recognition of america giving thanks for everything the people in this country have, but the start of the jewish holidays and celebrations. seven details of presents for them coming up. this hasn't happened for thousands of years and won't happen, hanukkah on this date, for thousands more years. it's another reason to give thanks. >> i don't think you and i will
10:37 am
be around then, anyway. thank you, john. >> let's go back to london now for more news. lauren, over to you. >> belgium has taken a step for euthanasia for terminally ill children. it would remove age limits from the countries existing law. it would have to be decided whether a child was capable to make a decision and the decision would have to be approved by the child's parents. >> it's just a final option that a minor who is terminally ill will have. until now, i have too much pain. there's no way that we can relieve the pain. i would like to die now, and that's a possibility that we have given in certain circumstances. >> we are not enthusiastic about this vote, because it's imprecise. it's not coherent. it creates differences between
10:38 am
adults and minors. most of all, it puts a minor under a weight, a considerable weight about this decision when this child might be only a few days or weeks away from dying. >> a senator from the liberal, thank you for being with us. you're in favor of this. can you explain the safeguards? >> actually, this proposition is actually what happens in a medical reality. what we do is actually creating a legal framework and giving the possibility to solve the gray zone that is there today. >> it seems though children trips, in many countries are deemed too young r. young to decide to vote, too young to have the age of criminal responsibility. surely something like deciding to die is bigger than those things and isn't a decision a child should have to make. >> the thing is, we take the
10:39 am
mental maturity as a standard. we ask the psychological analysis about is the minor able to make is that discussion you. don't have to look at the physical age, you have to look at the mental age. if you look at it this way, it's certainly that there's a big difference between the physical age and mental age with minors who have been sick for several years, who of been in and out of hospitals for several years, so if you take that as a standard, that matureness, then the discussion is completely different. >> one thing i want to put to you in a recent public debate, the law is argued, existing law is not safe and half of euthanasia deaths are not reported. it suggests that the existing
10:40 am
laws are not properly enforced. is that not a concern to you that you're widening the number of people who are not properly looked after by these laws? >> actually not at all. i think it's very important that we make it happen, that every euthanasia is reported, but you can only report euthanasia when you have the legal framework. the legal framework is of the very most important, so i think this has to be the standard. >> you do have a legal framework for euthanasia. according to the study, not all of reported, which is illegal. is that right the? >> i think still today are some practices that are not reported, and i'm completely against it. if you look at it. we are a country that has a legal framework, and if you look at other countries where it does
10:41 am
happen, the practices do happen in other countries. they don't have a legal framework, there is no possibility of insuring that everything goes as planned, and that everything is well planned and that you have all the safeguards. we have two doctors, we have a psychological analysis, and everything goes at planned, and i think this is actually the most important thing that we have that legal from him work. >> ok. director, thank you very much indeed for talking to us. we'll bring you the other side of the story, the debate. meanwhile, the final activist of the arctic 30 has been given bail in russia. australian collin russell was one of 30 arrested in september after a protest against drill for oil in the arctic sea. other members of the group are freed and awaiting trial. the group faces charges of hooliganism, which could send them to prison for up to oh
10:42 am
seven years. >> a british company's poised to release jeanettely modified mosquitoes into the florida keys. it is hoped that i will help in the stop of spreading of dengue fever. they are released into the wild, where they breed, resulting in a massive decline in mosquito numbers and the reduction of the fever. while approval is being awaited, not everyone is behind the controversial scheme. >> in the florida keys, mosquito control is a serious business.
10:43 am
these tropical islands are home to dozens of different kinds of mosquito, but it's this one that's the biggest cause for concern. it carries the dengue fever eye russ which led to an outbreak here. british scientists developed a genetically modified male moss skeet to with a gene that kills their own offspring. >> it's a reasonable method to control mosquitoes that poses very little harm to the environment. i would say none, and as far as human health is concerned, i have not seen anything that concerns me. >> the authorities refer to the fight against dengue fever as urban war four and with a multi-billion dollars tourist industry, much is at take. some say the risk of tampering
10:44 am
with mother nature is not a solution. >> this man contracted dengue fever after being bitten by a misskeet toe. he has a stern warning. >> to do it really properly, to make sure that every step of the way has been done with rigorous scientific overview and scientific research and the utmost care. >> for dengue experts, there are other considerations. he's not worried about the science, but he is concerned about the message this latest scheme might send. >> i would be against any technique that took away from personally responsibility, cleaning up your yard, dump you go the water out, so fort and so on, making you think it's someone else's, you know, job. >> no vaccination against dengue fever and the disease is a global killer. if mosquitoes are released here, it would be controversial, but
10:45 am
also closely watched. >> with we are joined from o ford in the united kingdom, c.e.o. of the company behind the research. the minute you start talking about genetic modification, they think of frankenstein sized mosquitoes flying around biting everybody. does it work? >> it does, actually. we have done trials in brazil and every single trial, we have shown we have reduced the mosquito population that spread dengue by 90%. it's very, very effective, and you really can't get that level with any other conventional approach. >> what's the difference between your product and the traditional way of spraying insecticides to kill mosquitoes? >> it's a very big difference. strays and folks don't work. you can kill a mosquito with a tray stray and fog, but can't
10:46 am
bring down the population of mosquitoes that the level you need to to stop dengue fever. most of the mosquitoes that live in the town and cities actually live in and around the home. they exclusively bite humans. unless you have continual access to people's houses, you can go in and fog and spray when you want, you're not going to control them approximate in today's urban civilization, that's not feasible. >> critics will say you're opening a can of worms by releasing these mosquitoes, tampering with mother nature. what's your response? >> well, i think often what gets confused with is things like g.m. crops, because the g.m. label carries certain messages, and this is actually very, very different. with a g.m. crop, what you're doing is giving a crop an advantage to spread through a number of generations.
10:47 am
what we're doing is giving the mosquito the biggest disadvantage it can have to not be able to breed properly. it's a finite end. it doesn't exist in the environment, because the moss skis tote that we release and the their offspring die. >> apart from the public perception of genetic modification, what are the other changes you anticipate with with the project? >> the public perception and communication is the major one we have. the science is very, very sound and tested for 15 years now. the issue we have really is we're a small company and we're introducing this in various countries throughout the world. we're not a huge multi-national. we don't have a big budget for p.r. most of our communication is done face-to-face, interviews such as this. it's a new technology. people are entitled to ask questions and really getting our message across and talking to people is the best way of
10:48 am
answering them. >> thank you for talking to aljazeera. >> more to come, including misty finds a new home. we'll tell you how this dinosaur from the past is going to spend its future. >> we'll have all the sport, record for adam scott, but find out the next achievement beckons for the champion. more on that, stay with us. >> and now, a techknow minute... >> and now, a techknow minute.

10:53 am
