but that wasn't enough for you shame on you a big shame. silas struck an alliance with the whose these after a popular uprising ended his thirty three year rule in two thousand and twelve he was succeeded by his deputy after rob a month or so had a who fled to saudi arabia after the takeover in journey two thousand and fifteen and it was there he called an emergency meeting on saturday to discuss the situation with. the saudi led coalition has been fighting to restore hardie to power meanwhile salah says he wants a quick end to the conflict. which is a vote into the world's largest humanitarian crisis. the regional analysts believe salah is past me motivated and is looking for a future role for him and possibly members of his family in government whatever the case this latest violence is threaten to destabilize yemen even.
on the war in yemen has its origins in the failure of a political transition following the twenty eleven arab spring the uprising forced out longtime president salah and triggered a complicated struggle for power as how the abdel-hamid explains. in many ways the conflict in yemen underlines the contradictions and rivalries of a post arab spring middle east it was all about reinstating the authority of arabic drug heady the internationally recognized yemeni president he had risen to power after the popular uprising in two thousand and eleven taking over from his boss ali abdullah saleh who had led the country for three decades had to struggle to impose his authority in a country riddled with poverty the spread of armed groups and corruption he also couldn't fend of the rising influence of the who thieves who had taken control of the northern province of saddam and the capital sanaa. once at odds the iranian
backed who these and deposed president who still had the support of many in the military became allies and were planning a total takeover of the country. but more than two years later neither side appears close to achieving a military victory and the political cards are being shuffled once again the tactical alliance between the who's the supporters was fragile at best both being highly suspicious of each other's motives but united by the same desire to overthrow the had the administration. former president ali abdullah saleh now says he's open to talks with the saudi that coalition if it will put an end to the fighting and the blockade while they need to lift the blockade and open the airport and allow food and medicine into the country we will open a new page for them for dialogue what is happening in yemen is enough. this turnaround effectively puts an end to the partnership with the who sees their leader criticize the move as an attempted coup he's very charismatic in the way
that he knows how to to actually go out of his way change a hundred eighty degrees and be very pragmatic in who he. goes into a coalition with and once again if it suits him of the timing is right he will do what is necessary to remain in power it's about regime security and he's very good at the probably the who this is that they're an ideological player so they do have a clear belief system they believe in something they have an ideological objective they want to achieve and solid doesn't have that for solid it's pure about purely about interests and it's about establishing or maintaining his power base as president saleh was a close saudi ally and for the who through several times he's also known as a man of great survival x. friends have once again turned into enemies and flows into new. living head the legitimate president of yemen in the cold without the.

responsible for being sloppy in drafting a tweet that the president issued on saturday giving lying to the f.b.i. as an added reason for his having fired michael flynn that's sort of at odds with the attacks that the president has been launching against the f.b.i. in other tweets in which he claims that the f.b.i. has a reputation left in tatters and that it is corrupt it is biased against him and it is actually repeating a story about an f.b.i. agent who was removed from the ongoing investigation into russia contacts that he was in favor of hillary clinton and against donald trump. the u.s. says it will set its own policies on migration after withdrawing from a un pact designed to improve the handling of refugees and migrants globally u.n.

thousand people that are marching on the streets of tehran but what people have been telling me is what they write this story and transparent elections they've lost confidence in the national election commission which after a week since the general election has still not managed to provide an alchemy of these elections this demonstration was organized by members of the opposition party but the people that we've spoken to come from all walks of life we're seeing families out here we're seeing students were seen members of the of the opposition party but we're also seeing members of the president's own party it's. not nice here it's not in any way similar to the riots in the fields and the causes that we saw between demonstrators and police only days ago but. there is still a terror in the people. for an election result

october he warned of the potential collapse of the g.c.c. if the crisis continues many analysts agree this is i think the middle quite. of the crisis actually for a long and we are going to see probably blocks within the g.c.c. one is led by saudi arabia and it. will actually have. to a lesser extent probably kuwait. so we'll be having been to see a lot of that one asked on saturday about the gulf diplomatic crisis at the international mediterranean dialogue conference in rome of those foreign ministers schiff mohamed when i'm on a sunny said it was important for countries to work together you need to reach a level of understanding going security principles that everybody is going to appoint and everybody should and should be committed to and then from there we've been. on it on the next system for
a lot of the cooperation the foreign minister added that the gulf regions collective security had been threatened by the measures taken by the blockading countries i think. he's involved. with this is something qatar would not do about it has made it to me and many times a by the by other companies often show that they cannot actually accept a thought that they want a negotiation they want. concessions by all sides actually to solve the crisis the blockading countries of saudi arabia the you. in egypt have accused cult out of supporting terrorism maintaining cordial relations with iran and meddling in the internal affairs of their countries allegations the company government has strongly denied other maintains there is no legitimate justification for the actions taken by the four nations calling their decision of violation of its sovereignty the last time father played host to

world's first successful heart transplant it was carried out by christian belt as a hospital in cape town the procedure is still generating groundbreaking ideas today tanya page reports. what a scale hospital is home to a museum dedicated to the world's first heart transplant it happened in this room under the steady hand of dr christiane barnard who died in two thousand and one the surgery has barely changed in fifty years what has of course dramatically changed is the postoperative immunosuppression post-operative care and that led to for norman survival rate you have to go seventy eighty percent of transplant patients living after ten years in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven the first transplant triggered a debate on whether it was ethical all not letters written at the time show
a mixed response to the surgery one doctor in the former yugoslavia describes it as the most important event in the history of the human spirit a man in turkey wants to send everyone on the surgical team a new pair of shoes congratulations but some were negative as well one man in a stray or his father complaint with the police he thinks the operation was illegal and this woman and italy said never men shall be able to replace a human heart as man can't replace god as well half a century later a lack of education and awareness continues to prevent people from bridges storing as organ donors but without them none of these men would be alive today three of them have new hearts the fourth a transplanted kidney we don't have a very strong tradition of people becoming organ donors so why not consider living on through somebody else and giving somebody else a second chance and to weigh in
a little bit as one legacy of dr barnard's pioneering surgery is inspiration the cardiology team at the hospital where he worked is continuing to break new ground just launching a new plastic heart valve that could revolutionize the treatment of remeasured heart disease the significance of what we do now is a practical significance because we talk about thirty three million patients. who would otherwise that these training nurses have come to be inspired by dr barnard work by looking at the first six hearts he transplanted some see the vital organ as the center of our emotions others as a pump but it's only understood as well as it is because of dr barnard and his team tanya page out zero cape town they'll get plenty more to watch and read on our website al-jazeera dot com.
