10:06 am
him to kill our people. i believe after this we'll have to move in", he said he's not going go in full force, but if peace doesn't work, they'll use more force to deal with the rebels. >> when riek machar spoke to al jazeera in the interview earlier, he seemed to say there's open mistrust of the president salva kiir, saying he was not involved in a coup, but he now says he wants to be president. what sort of support does he have? >> he seems to have quite a lot of support from people from his own tribe, nuer, and maybe some support from within the government, people that feel they have not benefitted enough from salva kiir. some feel that he has become a dictator, and hasn't become more democratic. what people are concerned about is escalating violence.
10:07 am
the information minister says it's in control of the rebels, it's basically empty. those that fled have gone to the unbase or hiding in the bush. another concern is soldiers are defecting from the army, heading to join the rebels. he said he has no way of saying how many died, but there are bodies on the streets. "we can't go in as the army to collect them because we don't control the area." violence is escalating and something should be done soon. >> talking about ending the violence, what about the ongoing diplomatic efforts to end the crisis. >> there has been a lot of people, diplomats, in and out of juba trying to get the two sides to meet. the u.s. envoy is trying to ear. they are meeting with the president salva kiir. people think or hope that political dialogue is a way to
10:08 am
resolve the crisis. but this is nothing new. look at amgoala or mozambique, after getting their independence. maybe something the country has to take the the average civil was want to go back to normal as quickly as they can. this is a fight between two people. we mustn't get involved or kill each other. a lot of people tense. >> now, they intervene to prevent a genocide in a central african republic. french soldiers trying to disarm rebels are accused of shooting dead three of them. former fighters were with the seleka alliance group. they have been battling christian militias forcing thousand to leave their homes. >> andrew simmons is live from
10:09 am
bangui. >> we were in the area after the shoot-out. the french army is not confirming the situation but says that there was a clash within the district. the interim government is suggesting that these three men were former seleka and not only that, they were part of the president guard. what it was, the french army are tasked with trying to disarm anyone they think is attacking the other side. they were in this district on a very heavy patrol when this incident occurred, and after it there was a lot of chaos and former seleka members were trying to set up unofficial roadblocks on a main airport road which is still blocked. we encountered one of these
10:10 am
roadblocks and were threatened with a grenade because there was a wave of hate red towards the french. anybody french was a target and we were in a difficult situation that we managed to get out of. subsequently the seleka group took journalists to a location near the presidential palace to show the three bodies. the men were in combat fatigues and we understand they were carrying ak-47. they insisted that the french opened fire. it has not been confirmed by the french. chas more the people claimed the whole situation changed and the french should leave. we spoke to a relative of one of the dead men. >> i'm asking you french, go back home. since independence you have done
10:11 am
nothing. now you are manipulating, sometimes you are with us and against us. i'm asking you, go back home. >> do you think we are seeing a hardening of the security situation in the capital. how worried are people about the ongoing deadly violence that claimed so many lives? >> people are absolutely terrified. there is a situation where civilians are the victims. the french are trying to do their job, but there is often a reaction like this. the peacekeeping force had a similar situation on friday, when they confronted former seleka members and the result was where widespread clashes in many parts of the city. the french are in a no-win situation. they are deploying in a military
10:12 am
way in the capitol and not able to get resources elsewhere. they've been holding the situation successfully along with the peacekeeping force misca. and the problem is flare-ups and manipulation like this, the situation is explosive. >> in kenya a cargo train derailed, smashing into makeshift homes, coming off the tracks into a slum, home to a quarter of a million people. scores of people are feared to be trapped in the wreckage. >> we were trying to wait for the crane to lift the box and the engine to see if any bodies are laying under ground. >> a preliminary investigation into the plane crash in namibia suggested that the pilot

10:15 am
law. mm-hmm -- maher and his april 6th movement was involved in a lot of protests, and really the de facto opposition. putting them in prison will be seen as a breach of trust, a clamping down on dissent. we have in the last few minutes saw a press conference from the april movement saying, "the roadmap is not going no the right direction and we should withdraw from it and fight it." and described the activists as political prisoners. >> the anti-coup alliance says it will boycott. why did it decide not to take part, rather than campaign for a
10:16 am
no vote. >> all awrong the anti-coup alliance is closely aligned to the moody analytics. they refused to recognise the legitimacy of the government, and described it as a coup. so the new constitution, which is a product of that administration is simply illegitimate. they don't believe they have a role to play in society. they are arguing strongly for a boycott of the polls. one of the problems is in the 2012 con stit use when there was a referendum, we only saw a third of the electorate turn out. a lot was because people were boycotting. if we see a similar lack of turn out, a similar number of people staying away for whatever reason, whether because they reject to the politics or are concerned about safety.
10:17 am
if large numbers don't turn out the muslim brotherhood and others may have a dessatisfaction with the administration as it hands. >> peter greste there in cairo. >> you are watching al jazeera newshour. struggling to move on, we meet a woman hoping the end of 2013 will bring an end to boko haram attacks. weaving their way into the workforce. how the weaving of carpets comes with a twist. find out about south africa's quest to make test history in sport much that is still to come. >> now, the pressure on thailand's caretaker government to quit is growing. there has been more protests in
10:18 am
bangkok. they accuse prime minister yingluck shinawatra of being a proxy for her brother thaksin. he was off theed and charged with corruption, and fled into exile. >> to demonstrate the power and depth of the protest organizers led mass rallies at five different locations through the streets of bangkok. tens, if not hundreds moved through the streets. mobilising in a show of strength. >> small groups split. at the prime minister's residence was part of a mob, repelled by a police presence. >> translation: we want yingluck shinawatra out. it's better for the country. >> demonstrators gathered through the city. opposition leaders used the sky train to move between groups. at each, stirring the crowds with promise of change and
10:19 am
threats of public protests. >> translation: we want to kick yingluck shinawatra out because she's the leader of the current government under the thaksin regime. >> the anti-government protests have stamina and the ability to organise. they have been able to set up a stage and bring in tens of thousands of people. the question remains - is the government listening. the prime minister in an attempt to circumvent charges. the government announcing she was willing to set up a commission to deal with change much >> translation: the process of national reform can be achieved without conflicting with the constitution. it is necessary that we go ahead with the election. >> in this conflict there is no middle ground and no mood for compromise. the democrats vowed not to run on the next election unless the reforms happen.
10:20 am
the government says it will not happen. there's one thing that is clear, and that is that the protesters will stay and the battle is far from over. >> now, the russian oil tycoon caught in a surprised move by president vladimir putin said he won't bet getting involved in politics. we have more on the story. >> thank you. mikhail khordorkovsky, once russia's richest man, says the struggle for power is not for him, speaking at a packed media conference and flew to germany after his release. emma haywood is in berlin. it's been a whirl wind couple of days for mikhail khordorkovsky. what has he been saying about his release. >> i don't think the organizers expected so many people to show up. it was chaotic at times. when he appeared mikhail
10:21 am
khordorkovsky was quick to chang the german chancellor angela merkel who was instrumental in securing his release. he only found out saturday morning. he was asked about going to russia. he said he would only return if he was guaranteed that he could come and go. >> translation: the russian president's spokesperson said i could return to russia at any time. sadly at the moment i have no guarantees if i did to that i would be able to leave to take a plane elsewhere if i wished, if i had matters to deal with. at the time being family is important. >> understandably he wants to spend time with his family. that's his priority for now. but before his imprisonment he was an opposition voice against vladimir putin in russia. is he tending to return to politics?
10:22 am
>> well, from behind bars he was a staunch critic of vladimir putin. he said at the news conference that the political struggle was not for him, but one cannot imagine that he could stay silent on russia. he seems passionate about what was happening in his country. >> i'm not going to engage in political activity. i said that in my letter to vladimir putin, and reiterated it several times since. i'll engage in public work. the struggle for power is not for me now. >> mikhail khordorkovsky's visa to stay in germany is for a year. the priority is to spend time with his family. everything he does will be watched closely by the kremlin. >> thank you. emma haywood live in berlin on reaction to mikhail khordorkovsky's release from a russian prison. >> joining me now from moscow is a political analyst at the kahn
10:23 am
eegie analyst center. is mikhail khordorkovsky a threat to vladimir putin? >> apparently he is not, otherwise he would not have been released. however, apparently on the one hand mikhail khordorkovsky has been a liability for president vladimir putin, a liability as long as he was in gaol. letting him out would be a threat. that was the situation up until his release. apparently vladimir putin was negotiating some kind of safeguards, terms and conditions that would not make mikhail khordorkovsky - no longer making mikhail khordorkovsky a threat. now we know the talk, negotiations offer the release have gone on for at least two years and engaged high-ranking members of the german establishment, including foreign minister hans-dietrich
10:24 am
genscher. >> obviously this is stage managed. mikhail khordorkovsky said it was well managed, his release. it was like a 1970s spy novel. he said he doesn't want to return to the political side of activism. do you think we have seep the last of mikhail khordorkovsky? >> actually, there's nothing new about the statement he would not engage in politics. he said it in many interviews that he gave during his incarceration and in the prison camps. he said he would not engage in business, he had achieved enough and he wanted to do public work and do good for the russian society. >> he also said that the priority is there are still political prisoners in russia and he wanted western leaders to acknowledge and recognise that when dealing with vladimir
10:25 am
putin. >> yes, indeed. actually, mikhail khordorkovsky was the most prominent political prisoner, this is not just the opinion of vladimir putin's critics. half of the moscow vits said they saw him as a political prisoner. 40% of russians saw him as a political pr political prisoners. he would work so that their plight also would be eased. >> thank you. maria lipman from the kahn eegy moscow center. >> more from europe later, including out on the streets again. tens of thousands of protesters in ukraine demand the resignation of the country's president. >> also ahead - tapping into a liquid luxury. why a simple glass of clean

bangladesh. owners, security guards and managers have been charged with culpable homicide. causing death due to negligence. 100 people died on the outskirts of dabbihaka. >> half of all indonesians, half a million, have no access to drinking water. for those that have it on tap, it's not fit to drink. still water bills are high in indonesia. >> something many take for granted, but for this woman it's not a matter of turning on the tap. this mother of five struggles every day to find drinking water, and after buying six gallons, she barely has enough for her daily consumption. >> translation: we pay around 30, $0.40 for three gallons, around one quarter of our income
10:31 am
to water, and this is on the when water supply is good, otherwise it is more expensive. we have to queue the whole day and we are not sure we'll get it. >> it's an essential part of daily life. for many indonesians water is a luxury item. they use a huge part of the daily income to buy it, and even then it's too dirty to drink. >> this is the source of the water. and millions of others in jakarta. after being processed by water companies it reaches 40% of households, but it is undrinkable. >> the government and water companies say ageing rivers, polluted rivers and mismanagement are the reasons many indonesians have no access to drinking water. >> if you talk about mismanagement, i don't want to comment. i do want to say we have lived
10:32 am
up to our targets, doubling our customers in 15 years, but the government has not given us enough useable water sources. >> indonesians say it's unusable for cooking food, washing clothes or drinking. despite paying one of the highest water tar ifs in asia most are forced to by bottled water. something as crucial as water was never a priority. >> if you ask me why it has not been fixed, it should have been fixed 30 years ago. it was old then. the problem is classic, a lack of budget allocation. >> the government aims to supply clean drinking water to all indonesians by 2020. it doesn't mean it can be consumed straight from the tap. at least people are hopeful they
10:33 am
won't have to depend on sources like dirty rivers any more. >> whether it's food for fuel the cost of basic items in pakistan is sky rocketing. the inflation rate for november was 10.8% imran khan, the litre of the opposition has been addressing rallies. he blames the government for the hard time face by million of pakistanis. >> afghanistan has been known around the world for its carpets. for many women weaving could be a way to make a living. an organization in chicago is helping women to do business. we have this report. >> the rich cultural history of afghanistan's province was blown up by the taliban, along with towering statues of buddha.

10:35 am
why? we need to sell more rugs. >> the revival of african leaving comes with a western twist. arzu makes afghan rugs and modern carr bets from modern designers. a change from complex afghan patterns. >> we are comfortable with the foreign designs, because they are simple. >> at first most of the women were illiterate, signing for pay with a thumb print. >> now you look and it's signatures. they know how to write, to read, they are learning maths. you know, what we have done, how we transformed their lives is inspirational. >> it's a change appreciated by the men. >> some of the people here have nothing, nothing to move their lives forward. thank god the lives of the people have gotten better. >> moving on with their lives was as dramatic as the designs

10:39 am
>> and while the opposition leaders are calling on people to stay here over the next days and weeks, they have offered no concrete ideas or actions to move things forward. the government has not offered concession. we heard an opposition leader say they are inventing a broad movement, a people's movement, the my don movement to try and bring in people from all walks of life, from all around ukraine. this remains a divided country. the people in independence square would like the country to turn west towards europe, there's a number in the south and east believing that ukraine belongs with russia, customs and history is aligned with russia, and praises what viktor yanukovych has done, accepts a russian bail out. a $15 billion bail out. this is far from over.
10:40 am
demonstrators say they'll stay until it's over. what that means is uncertainty. >> it's a diff planning act. on the one hand trying to apiece the protesters, and wanting to retain close ties with russia. what are the option ape to him now. >> the european union says it has not closed the doors on ukraine, but perhaps viktor yanukovych is not the man to rule with. viktor yanukovych has ruled out presidential elections, it's been ruled out until 2015. the ukrainion economy is struggling. it has an $11 billion deficit. there's not been the reforms that are needed to join theion kwon at some point. without the reforms there won't be opportunity. everyone knows reforms are difficult. it's a challenging situation

10:42 am
elementary school, built to keep them out of site. more than 500 are enrolled. half that many fit inside. >> in may the european court of human rights rules that the government discriminates against the roma. through that lawsuit 23 roma children won the right to transfer to mixed schools. so far only three have done so. >> that is because they have been deliberately held back with beaurocrat uk formalities. the authorities latest defense against assimilation. >> if you go to the mixed element ris you see the romas at their desk. no one is complaining about them. the government wants to place 500 students there. that means one non-roma to three roma. >> only a handful make it to middle school, because their grades are poor and by 12 some

10:50 am
appealo, where expensive units are popping up. a tiny bedroom can sell for $300,000. 75% snapped up in the first few weeks before construction began. >> construction companies build every day, on the other hand there are millions of people in sao paulo and other areas without a home, living in precarious conditions. all the protests we are seeing, because the inequality reached a level where the government needs to react. >> the city of sao paulo is plans housing units, but there are more than a million people living in precarious conditions. >> rents for the past five years increased to where they are now almost double the monthly minimum wage of $350. >> pushing people like this to occupy neighbouring vacant lands
