6:08 am
explanations for this one is that he actually miscalculated the level of support that he has within the military institution and within the security and his so within the pollen institutions the second one is not mistaken a decision he expected to step and this is not the end of the story you probably see something a counter reaction on his part or on the part of his loyalists so it's still too early to tell i'm an announced his intention to run hours after current president of the fatah has sisi declared his plan to seek a second term even before sisi made his candidacy official it wasn't just widely assumed that sisi would prevail in the march elections it was also widely expected that real opposition to sisi was likely to be thin on the ground potential candidates have either already withdrawn or seen their candidacy while. some have blamed an atmosphere of fear to other presidential hopefuls were forced to quit the
6:09 am
race earlier this month. one of them said that the nephew of former leader on what he said last week he wanted to protect his campaign workers from intimidation or arrest another former prime minister and air force general ahmed shafik had also announced his interest in running but he was placed under house arrest before being deported from the united arab emirates where he'd been living in exile according to his lawyers was detained as soon as he landed in cairo and then there is egyptian army colonel ahmed consul in december he was sentenced by a military court to six years in prison after he announced his plans to run for president leaving many to wonder just how serious a threat the military men may have posed to sisi a former military chief of staff said not only is somebody with he's a serious contender he was the former chief of stuff the deputy head of the supreme council of the own forces did with the body of them a lot of and he is much senior into those of the military command and in sisi so
6:10 am
he's somebody who is very well connected with the americans very well connected with unity so he's not someone who is a lightweight anyway during cc's rule which has been marked by a crackdown on freedom of expression human rights groups have been placed under severe restrictions and many critics in the media have been silenced the question now how many more presidential candidates will be added to a seemingly growing list of those being suppressed. well let's have a look at sami a nonce background he became chief of staff of the gyptian military in two thousand and five under former president hosni mubarak in twenty levon and during the gyptian revolution he worked closely with u.s. officials including james mattis the current u.s. defense secretary but just a year later former president mohamed morsy forced him to resign and on eventually formed his own political party tag masood is a professor at the harvard kennedy school of government in the u.s. he says sami anon has many allies who could help him. semi i meant clearly has
6:11 am
loyalist supporters within the military establishment it's inconceivable that he would have decided to run for the presidency without having some backers within the military so the question is how will those people respond so i do think that it's too early to say that and then candidacy has been nipped in the bud but we are clearly and it's clear that the regime has indicated its anxiety about i meant candidacy and we'll see now what happens in the coming days in what must be a negotiating process between and then in the military his candidacy announcement indicated that he thought that ccs policies were bad that the military was being asked to bear too much of the burden of governing egypt that in fact there did need to be a cooperation between the civilian and the military forces so certainly he talked an oppositional game in that brief period where he was allowed to speak but it's too much to i would say right now to call him an opposition candidate but certainly
6:12 am
challengers to see see what opportunities that they see this is a president whose popularity has declined significantly as a result of many of the tough economic decisions that he's made the most notable of which was the floating of the egyptian pound more than about a year ago which saw the the pound plummet to something like eight hundred pounds per u.s. dollar and that has certainly been felt by a lot of egyptians particularly middle class egyptians in their pocketbooks in addition sisi has pared back subsidies and done all kinds of other things that i think were actually necessary for the egyptian economy but did not do him any favors in terms of his popularity and the u.s. state department has reacted spokeswoman had a new act says the u.s. as a way of his detention. we are following these reports we know he's spent considerable time in the united states so where we're certainly familiar with him we support a timely and credible electoral process and believe it needs to include the
6:13 am
opportunity for citizens to participate freely in egyptian elections we believe that that should include addressing restrictions on freedom of association peaceful assembly and also expression. the united nations says an estimated five thousand people have been displaced by turkey's military offensive against kurdish fighters in the african region of syria. the operation which involves shelling and strikes is set to enter its fifth day it's believed around eight hundred thousand civilians are living there activists say at least twenty three civilians have been killed so far now frayne is surrounded by turkish and free syrian army forces to the north east and west and syrian government forces to the south it's believed most of those fleeing of charging through a government held territory to an enclave inside aleppo city that's controlled by kurdish forces meanwhile at least twenty one people have suffered breathing problems after an alleged chemical attack on a rebel held enclave mysterious capital damascus the syrian observatory for human

rights has accused the government of being behind me attack it says white smoke was released after syrian forces fired a barrage of rockets into the neighborhood of duma the attack prompted warning sign the international community diplomats from twenty nine countries have met in paris to push for sanctions and criminal charges against those responsible for similar attacks and the united nations security council has met to discuss chemical weapons and the situation in syria christian salome reports from new york. russia called this last minute security council meeting on the issue of chemical weapons in syria to defend itself against attacks coming from the united states alleging that russia was ultimately responsible for ongoing chemical attacks in syria because it had failed to authorize ongoing investigations by the u.n. into those attacks the u.s. and russian ambassador were quite friendly on their way into the meeting but once
6:15 am
the meeting took off into formal statements they went on the attack the russians say they are all for accountability in syria when it comes to chemical weapons but . past investigations they said were unscientific and politically motivated those past investigations found evidence that syria and ice will both have used chemical weapons syria of course denies that they have used chemical weapons russia suggested that the recent attack being talked about and eastern ghouta was actually being manufactured or somehow exploited by the west. does not seem strange to anybody that this alleged episode the veracity of which is yet to be confirmed or perpetrators yet to be identified for some reasons converges with the meeting in paris in the forthcoming syrian national dialogue in sochi when russia does not like the facts they try and distract the conversation that's because the facts come back over and over again to the truth russia wants to hide that the assad regime
6:16 am
continues to use chemical weapons against its own people russia also announced it's putting forward a new proposal to address chemical weapons used in syria but the united kingdom pointed out in its remarks that past proposals undermine the council's attend to hold the government of syria accountable said focusing on non-state actors like i saw clearly this will be a problem going forward something that will have to be negotiated the united states for its part said that it would not accept any proposal that undermines its ability to get at the truth. should a head on al-jazeera pakistani police make an arrest over the matter of seven year old the scene happened sorry. the first member of donald trump's cabinet is question over a possible collusion between the u.s. president's campaign and russia.
