that fighting with escalation of the saudi coalition continues attacking her data. we have targeted the ships of these countries in regional waters but we didn't attack the old time because all commercial ships this is our right but we did not use it when we decided to retaliate we will do so because they were the first to target the ports and commercial ships and fishermen on the western coast this is collective punishment to the people in this area they are suffering a lot because they can't and don't fish in the red sea of course we would like a peaceful solution not a military one that means we're here for the dialogue we are now evaluating the initiative with the only better nor the conditions then we will have our own official position but we support dialogue we've told especially on war from the beginning that it must be from inside amongst the political yemeni components in

7:55 pm
of course rejected the results what wonders what's next. but i thought president nelson chamisa the presidential candidate of the opposition alliance rejected the results before they were announced they said there was rigging going on during the counting process and rejected them again after they were announced as well we're just outside their party headquarters at the moment we step aside we can take a closer look it's still under tight security there was armed police truck and two water cannon here and it was here on wednesday that there was some unrest soldiers came here and police as well to break up crowds of opposition supporters the opposition are holding a press conference he said it to be about an hour from now and there were expecting to find out what kind of evidence they got of the vote rigging that they allege and also what their strategy is going forward one of the options for them is to pursue a court process though in the past and opposition here in zimbabwe have taken

electoral issues to court even if the courts ruled in their favor of the ruling party has ignored those rulings and other possible way forward for them is to call for people to come to the streets and demonstrate when crowds gathered on the streets on wednesday the army moved in and swiftly broke up those protests using live gunfire that's where six people died and more were injured so people here in raleigh might after that not have very much appetite for going to the streets again we talk about the tight security outside that opposition headquarter building but there have been opposition officials and supporters arrested what for. so actually we saw about twelve of them being filed out of here yesterday about this time yesterday into a police truck taken to a police station and police say in total they arrested twenty six people who they say are responsible for the violence that happened on wednesday so they're being
7:57 pm
charged with crimes relating to starting protests but opposition say that these arrests by the army and by the police are politically targeted and that the ruling party is using the police and the army to stifle and lock down. the the opposition's attempt to fight back against what they say is a rigged election result rigging that the electoral commission and the ruling party have consistently denied for the moment malcolm we'll leave it there until the top of the press conference begins thank you while arguments go all over the result in zimbabwe mali's presidential election set for a runoff no candidate made it to fifty percent in the first round of voting the election commission announced provisional results gave president ibrahim boubacar cata forty one percent rival. came second with seventeen percent millions of people cast their ballots on sunday but the vote was marred by violence at thousands of polling stations and some election convoys were targeted by gunmen.
