smith the vice captain david warner and cameron of bancroft's will be sent home from the african tour following their role in a ball tampering scandal. more later this hour. now five people have been charged over a fire in a shopping center in russia which killed sixty four people forty one of them children earlier russian president vladimir putin visited the siberian city where it happened and blamed the tragedy on criminal negligence of unread protests on the streets demanding justice for the victims our moscow correspondent rich allan's reports. two different memorial events in moscow one tuesday evening two different aspects of a nation's grief first the official one beneath the walls of the kremlin with
12:03 am
flowers and toys supplied by the city authorities later a people's gathering on pushkin square here there was anger at the country's political system for allowing cameras appalling fine to happen. on the ground our citizens are deeply unhappy with your thought these actions including the president who should be responsible for everything happening in the country but who nevertheless doesn't do anything to minimize things like corruption. i think at the at the rallies hundred percent staged i don't think that many people willingly when there are many of them receive salaries from the state and they were forced to attend here people came because they want to tune in camera itself which lost so many people in this disaster understandably the mood was even more roar that's a rally demanding truth and justice a man described his last words to his dying young daughter would you. i said where where is my daughter i was talking to her on the phone she cried i'm here dad here
12:04 am
i told her lie down on the floor i'm brave breathe and don't die i cried i was crying to my daughter she said dad i love you i'm suffocating i'm losing consciousness excuse me people here say they believe the death toll is much higher than officially admitted. vladimir putin often stays away from domestic disasters but earlier on tuesday he visited camera and it's been removed residents criminal negligence was to blame he said but it was too early to point fingers at this system an investigation team of one hundred people is working here they will go along the whole chain starting with those who issued licenses and up to those who are responsible for safety and that security firm employee who is sitting there and did not press the button on time in the gutted remains of the winter cherry shopping center those investigators are trying to piece together what happened and how blocks fire exits and nonfunctioning alarm system and the slow emergency
12:05 am
response might have contributed to the deaths of so many children and families relaxing on a sunday afternoon five people have been charged the director and the technical director of the mall have already appeared in court they insist all safety inspections and training were done by the book rusher is no stranger to horrible tragedy so it's quite difficult to put one's finger exactly on what it is about of this one that's made people so hurt and angry perhaps the high number of children dead is a factor but also too i think the belief amongst many russians that corruption and bureaucratic indifference on just nuisances they can be devastatingly fatal to. a country's systemic failings are often most exposed by disaster and it's the failings of eighteen years of putin's rule that are on display just as he begins his fourth and potentially last in office retaliates al-jazeera moscow. well
12:06 am
let's discuss this and more with samuel queen he's director of the russia in situ to king's college london thanks very much for coming in to speak to us so as you saying there have been protests in america and solidarity elsewhere in the country as well do you see anger over this tragedy leading to a period of sustained protests perhaps. i mean it's really hard to say a lot of it's going to be down to really how well the investigation of the information around the investigation is handled there are a lot of questions both about this case and about why when these things happen lessons are not always learned i mean obviously these things happen around the world immigrant full towers here in london last summer right so. what people will be looking to see is that there is clarity about the number of victims about exactly why this happened about why people were locked in rooms why the sprinkler system wasn't working why the alarm wasn't signaled and that sort of thing and you
12:07 am
mentioned that investigations haven't been open and transparent in the past because of the way information is being is communicated between people because of the conversations that are emerging on social media and because of the emotion over what has happened will they have to change the way they approach this well i think they may have to remember the reality is there isn't a lot of trust the reality is there's already rumors going around that maybe it wasn't sixty something casualties but but maybe in the hundreds and it's not going to be enough just to say that's not true or there's going to be how it's going to have to be something demonstrative there's going to have to be some kind of an effort actually including people both in the immediate investigation but then also in in the. the inquiries and other investigations that come to think about how this can be prevented in the future because we used to sing a very self-assured at confident president putin whether it's on the international stage or whether it how worried will he be about this
12:08 am
on a personal level well he did go out there i think in previous tragedies we've actually seen him remain quiet for a couple of days in this case he actually. went out himself he was a little bit more forward than he tends to be i think he is trying to be visible and sensitive he's coming first of criticism around the pictures for example of him laying flowers at memorial and in cambridge or in which he was alone they cleared the square right now to just stand there and maybe not the optic that. that he would want to to present maybe if he had that to do over again now and president putin we know derives much of his mandate from the strong man approach in confronting the west but in. being the man who will protect the interests of his people. has this dealt a blow to his personal image well you will have to see but the reality is he has
12:09 am
emerged as the one symbol of this political community that isn't credibly valuable to many russians and that's where his legitimacy comes from right that does give him a lot of strength vary but in a moment in which the ability of that community to take care of people to take care people's children is called into question that that does provide some risk but i would caution against at this point reading too much in even spending too much time talking about. the politics of this i mean i've been. in a russia for four for quite some time there's been a lot of of tragedies and i've never seen any kind of response that was as raw as emotional and as painful as this has been to watch. thank you very much samuel green from the russia institute at king's college london well let's move to other developments now nato has joined in the mass expulsion of russian diplomats in support of the u.k.'s action following the souls we know of agent attack secretary-general again stoltenberg says they are reducing the size of russia's
12:10 am
nato mission from thirty to twenty australia island moldova and belgium of also join the list of nations expelling russian officials taking it to twenty six stoltenberg says nato has measures are the result of a series of russian actions and of course what triggered this was the source for an attack but it is part of a broader response by nato allies to a path of unacceptable unacceptable and dangerous behavior by russia. we have seen the illegal annexation of crimea we have see in the east of the station of eastern ukraine we have seen cyber attacks we have seen the hybrid tactics we have seen russia are investing heavily in modern military equipment and the willingness to use military force against neighbors or russia continues to strongly deny any involvement in the soulsby attack the foreign minister sergei lavrov promised
12:11 am
a strong response to the mass expulsion of diplomats and criticized both the u.s. and the u.k. . but you to use in your words the wish that we will respond on down to only because nobody wants to tolerate switchboards behavior and we won't either we know this is the result of colossal pressure causal blackmail which is now unfortunately the main tool of washington on the international arena. now facebook c.e.o. mark zuckerberg reportedly plans to testify before congress over social network's role in harvesting millions of users data without their knowledge facebook and the data analytics from cambridge analytic are at the center of a raw of the way postal information was used to influence the outcome of the two thousand and sixteen u.s. presidential election. turned down requests to be questioned in britain's parliament. well the whistleblower at the heart of the scandal has been giving evidence to british m.p.'s christopher wiley said data gathered unlawfully was used to manipulate people in the u.k. to vote to leave the european union summit now calling for the brics that
12:12 am
referendum to be declared null and void or insular reports. christopher what his extraordinary relations are now casting a shadow over democratic elections on both sides of the atlantic here he was speaking to a u.k. government committee explaining how he knew that public opinion had been unlawfully manipulated before the referendum which is leading to the u.k. leaving the european union to irrevocably alter the constitutional settlement of this country on fraud is a mutilation of the constitutional settlement of this country and you cannot hold yourself a lever you cannot call yourself somebody who believes in british law and and win by breaking british law in order to achieve that. while essential claims of the campaign group to leave the european union hired an offshoot of cambridge analytic the data mining company accused of harvesting personal details of millions of people through facebook and manipulating opinions in an attempt to put donald trump
12:13 am
in the white house the company he said had subverted elections for its own aims in countries including nigeria and trinidad now it was doing the same in the u.k. the company will send out billions of people being murdered to intimidate voters this is the company that goes out and tries to illicitly acquire you know live internet browsing data of everyone in an entire country so i think a lot of questions should be asked about the role of patriotic here in this election and whether they were indeed actually complying with the law here to answer they said had already been claimed to leave campaign broke u.k. election law by using campaign funds on lawfully allegations the leave camp denies but in an emergency debate in parliament m.p.'s hostile to bricks it's have begun to demand the referendum results be declared null and void inherently untrustworthy if the allegations are true that
12:14 am
a potentially six hundred two. and she five thousand pounds was spent illegally in a very focused targeted campaign which by definition would been focused on targeted on a very small number of people then i think it's very hard to predict the the effect that that would have passed the law is to new york and nobody is that both at least one prominent m.p. who backs the leave campaign said he agreed with the need for a criminal inquiry so it ended up in a situation where you get newspaper headlines like this questioning not just the ethical value but the sheer legality of the vote to leave the european union of course supporters of bricks it would say the entire thing is a made up plot to discredit the democratic decision but in this hall of mirrors it's becoming increasingly difficult to know what's real and what's fake lawrence lee al-jazeera westminster in london joining me now via skype from san francisco is
12:15 am
enough read here is the chief technology correspondent for access in an american news website thank you very much for speaking to us so i'm pretty shocking revelations we heard from whistleblower christopher widely today how would you describe the impact this is having on facebook now both now and potentially in the future. well i think there's three big clouds hanging over facebook now and there are potentially going to pass but they're all significant and could affect the company one is to consumers leaves you know there was a brief you know delete facebook movement obviously if that were to gain steam or even if people were to use the site less that would be a big issue the other advertisers obviously that's where facebook gets its money if advertisers were to decide to leave it but then the third which has come out the most lately is regulation to government step in and limit the kinds of data that facebook can collect or the types of permission it has to get and that's really where a lot of this comes in of whether mark zuckerberg will have to testify right and
12:16 am
that's exactly what he is worried about is we're seeing efforts by facebook to try and preempt that and get ahead of the problem but what are your expectations of his testimony to the u.s. congress. i think there's a growing realization in the inside and outside of facebook that likely he will need to testify that you know regardless of whether there's others at the company that have expertise people want to hear from him and i think now it's pretty much a question of which committee and when rather than asked and what about potential fines because we have seen. the facebook's market value being impacted by this but it's not seen as particularly significant could they end up paying significant financial penalties in the coming months and years. there is a risk the biggest risk in the u.s. is probably with the federal trade commission where the facebook is already operating under a consent decree so in this case if the federal trade commission were to find that
12:17 am
facebook did violate that consent decree they could have to pay a lot of money because it's or incidents and there would be lots and lots of incident you know typically the fines aren't usually the biggest thing that impact the company usually it's changes in behavior that have the biggest impact but certainly fines could be significant if in fact ultimately that were the finding of regulators and what about users and well general public all over the world we've seen this extend well beyond the u.k. in the u.s. what can be done in terms of regulation both nationally and globally to prevent wrongful exploitation of users data. certainly i mean there could be new rules or legislation about how the data can be used i think facebook would be quick to bring up the fact that they did have rules and what happened with cambridge analytic was the company violated their rules obviously there could be more explicit user permissions where
12:18 am
a user actually has to give more granular permission each time their data is used certainly the e.u. is already moving ahead with g.d.p. are a series of privacy regulations we could see something similar similar data protection laws proposed potentially considered in the united states as well which would have an impact not just on facebook but on a lot of big tech especially companies like google and facebook and twitter that get their money through advertising ina fried in san francisco thank you very much thanks man. coming out for you on this news hour from london france's president promises to crack down on anti semitism following the mind of a holocaust survivor. zimbabwe school teachers threaten to storm the president's office over that what we've and says. and iraq and syria meet in the last match of the twenty eighteen international friendship championship tatiana will have the details and.

from doing more than seeing to concerned by a criticism i would ask my security council colleagues to consider whether we are wrong when we point to russian and iranian forces working alongside assad as being responsible for the slaughter russia voted for the so-called cease fire in syria last month more than that russia took its time painstakingly negotiating the resolution demanding the cease fire and if you watched closely during the negotiations we could see our russian friends constantly leaving the room to confirm with their syrian counterparts the. iran's revolutionary guard has denied saudi accusations that its arming who see rebels in yemen fired several missiles across the border on sunday targeting saudis capital riyadh iran has been accused of sending weapons to the who sees in the past but a report by the iranian news agency tasneem close the revolutionary guard is saying

12:39 am
a police crackdown on protests like many of egypt's opposition he now lives abroad then there's the long time opposition group the muslim brotherhood it came late to the revolution and one of its senior members mohamed morsi went on to become egypt's first democratically elected president in two thousand and twelve but within a year he'd been removed from power and imprisoned and now the muslim brotherhood has been outlawed as a terrorist organization most of its leadership are in prison or a broad range of aid has more. there was a small window of democracy in egypt a long history of strong when backed by the military that was in two thousand trilled and mohamed morsi was sworn in but the triumph of egypt's first democratically elected president and the party he represents the muslim brotherhood lasted just twelve months. the largest representative of political sunni islam in egypt is now labeled by the state as
12:40 am
a terrorist organization which the brotherhood denies there's no room for any kind of political practice nobody is allowed to express his opinion nobody is allowed to field him self as a candidate in as a serious candidate in front of sisi the military controls everything. the muslim brotherhood has been on the hit list of egyptian rulers for nearly a century has an alumna the first guy general was believed to have been killed by egyptian secret police in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. despite supporting the nursery who became president the brotherhood was banned in one nine hundred fifty four dozens of members were arrested or escaped another brotherhood leaders say it but it was hanged on the orders of president. throughout the one nine hundred eighty s. efforts by the muslim brotherhood to become a political force failed. it wasn't until the removal of hosni mubarak in two thousand and eleven that the brotherhood's freedom and justice party was elected for the first time along with president mohamed morsi who's now on death row for
12:41 am
ordering the killing of protesters. just a year after taking charge he was removed in a military coup led by the current president of the fatah and sisi morsi supporters accused the so-called deep state especially within the military hierarchy of not allowing the muslim brotherhood government to function in that single year after the first fully democratic election the main mistake is actually handing over their responsibility of managing the transitional period after the revolution after ousting hosni mubarak handing over this power to to the military took to the military and the military had all the time in order to abort the achievements of the revolution and. like other military rulers of egypt sisi has ordered the jailing of thousands of brotherhood supporters and successfully lobbied regional backers to declare the group as a terrorist organization. exiled members and brotherhood supporters say the ruling clique is suppressing moderate voices and warn that could result in an extreme
