the event. then as well as interior minister says six people have been detained after what president nicolas maduro says was an assassination attempt against him he accuses colombian a group of u.s. finances of trying to kill him as well as opposition says the government will now launch a crackdown. this was the moment when two laden drones allegedly exploded during a military parade in caracas on saturday. security agents quickly surrounded president nicolas maduro and he muscled him off the reviewing platform meanwhile venezuelan soldiers marching in formation broken rayon in all directions witnesses described loud blasts and smoke so me i looked out and i started seeing people running and that's when the device immediately collided there and everything started coming out. but duro immediately blamed his right wing opponent will be
5:13 am
apparent attack elements which he said were active in the united states also implicated colombia's president juan manuel santos nothing more though to try to assassinate me and i have no doubt that everything points to the right the venezuelan ultra right in alliance with the colombian ultra right and that the name of juan manuel santos is behind this attempt colombia's foreign affairs ministry called that accusation absurd and in washington president donald trump's national security adviser strongly denied any u.s. role i can say unequivocally there was no u.s. government involvement in this at all it has been widely reported that trump repeatedly suggested a military invasion of venezuela last year but was talked out of it by senior officials. bolton speculated without providing evidence that maduro his government may itself be responsible for the apparent drone bombing now with respect to what
5:14 am
happened last afternoon. could be a lot of things from a pretext set up by the majority and itself to something else i don't know but on sunday venezuela's interior minister showed pictures of the type of drone he claimed was used officials allege each carried a kilogram of the plastic explosive i want to see for sais that already we have so far six terrorists and had been detained several vehicles seized several raids in hotels are being carried out in our nation's capital or very important evidence has been gathered caracas released pictures of defense minister vladimir padrino visiting with seven soldiers said to be wounded in the incident and time a douro political leaders fear that majorities government will use the case to justify a harsh crackdown on the opposition the broad front opposition coalition tweeted that the government would take advantage of the incident quote to criminalize those
5:15 am
who legitimately and democratically oppose it and deepen the repression and systematic human rights violations robert oulds al-jazeera washington. rather leaders in south saddam have signed a new power sharing agreement aimed at ending five years of war the deal gives president salva candace form a deputy rick three months to form a transitional government he moved a small. another agreement signed between south sudan's government and opposition groups and bring you topes of ending five years of war this time regional countries brokered more than a month of direct discussions in the sudanese capital khartoum between the leaders of the whirring science. the civil war starts had less than three years after south sudan gained independence from the. then in twenty eleven president salva kiir accused his former vice president riek machar of attempting a coup since then tens of thousands have been killed and
5:16 am
a third of the twelve million population forced from their homes the latest agreement gives an eight month pretend period after which a rake my chair is due to return as vice president the deal stipulates thirty five ministers in a transitional government twenty from curious party and nine from much r.'s the rest represent other parties parliament will have five hundred fifty legislators including three hundred thirty two from peers group and one hundred twenty eight from my chars opposition leader rick machar says the latest deal will bring peace a power sharing deal science three years ago so much i returned to his position months later only for fighting to soon restart some such as florio are also what happened then are cautiously optimistic now. they are not as they move when the two thousand and sixteen fighting happened we were trapped so much has changed since the war my sister lost a husband and we also lost another relative we couldn't do anything we just stayed
5:17 am
at home now we just one piece. around six million south sudanese rely on foreign aid to survive with a commie devastated by were many are hanging their hopes on this agreement morgan al-jazeera will pull intel is from the national defense university is africa center he says the agreement still keeps power in the hands of the ruling elite. this time around they have a much broader tent a much bigger tent so it's not just a power sharing accord between the two principal parties namely react much and salva kiir but you have other opposition groups both armed and unarmed that have been brought on board so you have a structure where you're going to have you know five vice presidents including react much or the government is being expanded to thirty five ministries has been expanded to five hundred fifty seats so it's a much bigger deal however critics still say that it is an elite pact it is still
5:18 am
a power sharing agree it is still a power sharing accord between politicians that largely have the means to cause violence in the country tension between much are under president salva kiir it dates back to the one nine hundred ninety one civil war where now react much attempted to take over the movement from the later dr john garang and the tension within the s.p.l. them has really been a tension between who takes over the movement between these two powerful leaders so it's anyone's guess as to whether the current deal will actually resolve those tensions the time for a short break here in al-jazeera when we come back a diplomatic dispute between saudi arabia and canada over the arrest of human rights activists plus. this is what helps me survive. health care costs are set to rise in the u.s. despite president trump promising to keep them down stay with us.
5:19 am
from brisk news and fuel. to the womb tranquil waters of southeast asia. hello the rain in china has recently been more of the west anywhere else but i think you'll see from the forecast is dotted around the north of you now and then eastwards telling off into hong kong maybe giving a shower too along the yangtze basin but really it's all coming slowly size so she may do thirty five in one hand the same in hong kong bugs probably threatened by a share or two but maybe not prolonged rain which seems rather more intent on showing itself in the philippines there's been this line that runs from the central philippines down towards sumatra for about a week now and we see it there are still potential developments it'll circulations one very close to the philippines or i think where the sea quite likely from
5:20 am
centuries on science was including manila same is true back through so the vietnam cambodia and towards thailand but then as a cutoff roughly speaking borneo sas would you be unlikely to find showers are there but there are all that many of them although if you're in sumatra or three in singapore the chance is a little bit higher to be honest and the monsoon rains which are still going how should themselves be very active you know to protest behind and down towards west bengal that's still where they're likely to be to be honest for the next day or so . the weather sponsored by cats on race. discover the world of al-jazeera. the best films from across on the network of channels for the line is here i am allowed to be but i'm about to be fresh perspectives and new insights. to challenge and change the way we look.
5:21 am
at this time on algis. welcome back a quick reminder of our top stories here on al-jazeera at least eighty two people have died in the second quake to hit the in the asian island of lombok in a week a magnitude seven quake destroyed thousands of homes the government says hundreds of people have been injured. six people have been arrested after what venezuelan president nicolas maduro says was an assassination attempt it's alleged to drones exploded as he spoke at a military parade on saturday the opposition is warning that majeure may use the incident to further suppress his critics. and student protesters in bangladesh and
5:22 am
warn that security forces will not allow the crowds to continue blocking the streets police have used tear gas on demonstrators in the capital dhaka demanding better safety. donald trump has appeared to change his story about a twenty sixteen meeting between his son and a russian lawyer connected to the kremlin that meeting forms part of the moon a probe into possible links between trump's presidential campaign and moscow he now says the meeting was to collect information about his rival hillary clinton. and instead of about russian adoption he's tweeted fake news reporting a complete fabrication that i'm concerned about the meeting my wonderful son donald had in trump tower this was a meeting to get information on an opponent totally legal and done all the time in politics and it went nowhere i didn't know about it but my camera has more now from washington d.c. might say looks like donald trump is becoming increasingly concerned about any exposure his son junior may have to the miller probe what more can you tell us.
5:23 am
well it's not only the exposure of his son it's the possible exposure of himself in the past two months president trump has tweeted about a witch hunt no less than forty nine times this in reference to that miller probe it's understood that he's getting increasingly concerned about the nature of that probe about its with and publicly he has absolutely dismissed its validity privately he said to be asking friends about what he can do to end it now in this latest episode what we have is a trump from donald trump changing the story that he and his son donald trump jr had given about that meeting back in june twenty sixth in the trump towers the initial variation of the story from both son and father was that the meeting was taking place to discuss the issue of russian adoption however now president trump says confirms that that meeting was to elicit dirt on
5:24 am
a political opponent in particular hillary clinton now it goes even further than that because donald trump jr has told the senate the first version of the story he also was supposedly wrote a letter saying that second version of the story now it has emerged that president trump himself in fact wrote that letter so what we have is an absolute paul said written. written in a letter in the original version of the events of that meeting donald trump himself now confirming that what that meeting was was about discussing with a known russian agent essentially how to affect the course of the u.s. election and mike so where do we stand now on whether donald trump will actually sit down and be interviewed by the team and how worried is he about being subpoenaed. well there's been a plethora of meetings between donald trump's many lawyers and. people in recent
5:25 am
months trying to set the terms for exactly such a meeting and interview by the special counsel of the u.s. president now there's been backwards and forwards on this we heard the latest this morning when the into view with one of donald trump's lawyers jay sekulow who said that discussions are still continuing about the terms of such an interview should it take place but he also rejected completely the idea of a subpoena for a sitting president if you get a subpoena to file what's called a motion to quash that will be argued at the district court then it would go to the court of appeals then it would go to the supreme court of the united states from the supreme court and states it goes back down to the lower courts again so if the special counsel makes a determination and gets the authority and that's a question they have to have the authority to subpoena a subpoena or live testimony has never been tested in court to a president of the united states and there's a lot of language articles and precedent against that but if that decision is made
5:26 am
will will prepare to handle in court. now incidentally as well that very lawyer jay sekulow admitted in that interview that he in fact lived last year when he said that the meeting that took place and was to discuss russian adoption he says in the interview that he was given the wrong information at the time mike thank you. saudi arabia has frozen all new trade and investment transactions with canada accusing it of interference in the arrest of human rights activists saudi state media is reporting that the canadian ambassador to riyadh has been given twenty four hours to leave it follows a tweet by the canadian embassy in saudi arabia on saturday which said canada is deeply concerned about additional arrests of civil society and women's rights activists in saudi arabia including some are but we urge the saudi authorities to immediately release them and all of the peaceful human rights activists. what some
5:27 am
are but always a sister of rife but who has been in a saudi jail since twenty twelve for criticizing the government his wife has lived in quebec with their three children since twenty thirteen and they just became canadian citizens saudi arabia says canada's comments are an attack on its judicial system. israel's prime minister has defended the controversial new nation state law but is trying to reassure the druze community during a cabinet meeting binyamin netanyahu said the law was meant to protect israel status as a jewish state when on saturday the minority druze community led a rally in tel aviv against the law they're angry at its definition of israel and how it downgrades the status of the arabic language. you know it's only about the room where you the state of israel is the nation state of the jewish people israel is a jewish and democratic state individual rights are anchored in many laws including the basic law human freedom and dignity no one harmed and no one intends to harm these individual rights without the nation state law the future of israel as the
5:28 am
jewish nation state cannot be ensured for generations to come. therefore we will establish today a special miniscule committee that will advance those ties in these commitments and in parallel will also recognize those who serve in the israeli military and security services from all religions and its new cities. egypt says its military has killed fifty two people and arrested dozens as part of a crackdown in the sinai it says its forces destroyed vehicles loaded with weapons president sisi ordered the operation against armed groups in february value to restore security to the area that followed an attack on a mosque in sinai last november. a car bomb killed at least three people in somalia's capital mogadishu police say the vehicle was parked outside a restaurant on a busy street in a separate attack three soldiers have been killed by a suicide car bomb in the town of. group al shabaab has claimed responsibility.
5:29 am
there's unrest in eastern ethiopia after government forces moved into the capital of the somali region their arrival in was resisted by local security forces who are loyal to regional leaders looting rioting on the burning of churches been reported the u.s. embassy in addis ababa says ethiopian army has taken control of highways government buildings and the airport of the dough has more from neighboring djibouti. in the city of a couple of the somali region of ethiopia federal troops continue to our lives some of them by planes and. they residents of the city was surprised to see troops rolling into the city with tongs and at this point the local or special police exchanged fire with the federal troops and these created some confusion in which. began something that's so high
5:30 am
a market of hugo looted to churches bombed and up to fifty people losing their lives the government in addis ababa justifies why it sends the troops saying that there was a rift between the regional administration and the federal government and that there were plans by the regional administration to announce a separation or secession from the rest of ethiopia something that goes outrightly denied by the regional president mahmoud. standard that's an online news magazine covering ethiopia she says tensions have been building for a while. intervention by the federal government police force and an army force begun actually unfolding on wednesday and thursday when so much i reached down to state government. for me force the paramilitary d.-u. police force what we called them came to drain to another neighboring city to
5:31 am
district meeting by elders who have been denouncing the human rights abuse of their region not allow government to deal with the president and so they have sent to disrupt this meeting to three day work and that led to an increase in the in military activity in that region by the federal police also leading to the great to us city administration which is a chartered city to declare a partial military command post to protect the meeting and also the city so that events start unfolding on wednesday and thursday leading into the military the federal military to be deployed in and around to to gussy to yesterday my health insurance options in the united states are becoming more expensive and harder to come by premiums are expected to double for many people next year president donald trump had promised better and cheaper health care well the impact to the rising costs could be deadly as john hendren has been finding out. this is what helps me
5:32 am
survive keeps me alive. for under a hampton health insurance is a life saver what would happen if you didn't happen is coverage. quite honestly. i couldn't afford medication type one diabetes cost hampton the site in his left eye in two thousand and four the medications you used to avoid further problems cost more than seven hundred dollars a month all covered by insurance americans like andre have to have to make some difficult choices he's unemployed and get his health care through the medicaid program for the poor but it only covers individuals who make less than seventeen thousand dollars that makes it a. pay those premiums so he might be in a position where he has to choose between a job and having health insurance with the us health care system in crisis being sick in america is getting more expensive we actually pay. every other developed country and we actually have. the research firm says the
5:33 am
price of the most popular plans in the insurance exchanges created by the two thousand and ten act known as obamacare will rise on average fifteen percent that's due largely to the trump administration's cuts in federal subsidies and the planned repeal next year of the so-called individual mandate requiring every u.s. resident to have health insurance for public hospitals like stroger cook county that mandate has been a money saver and has stabilized us in a substantial way financially in the one nine hundred ninety s. one in four patients at stroger had insurance now most do fifty eight percent taxpayers spend less than a quarter of what they did in two thousand and nine if the. individual mandate or if the health care premiums on the marketplace go up because of a lack of will on the part of the government to underwrite and subsidize those plans then we will be. more people who are uninsured showing up
5:34 am
at our facilities under a hampton fears that could cost lives like kids. you know. don't take away. the care plan that we have now for now his remains a success story in one of the few developed countries where life expectancy is going down john hendren al-jazeera chicago. public health university of chicago he says politicians are trying to make the health system work . i think president trump really thought that republicans in washington had a viable plan to repeal and replace the affordable care act which is obamacare and they just didn't and it turned out that the american public including. many of president trump's own supporters really don't want obamacare to be repealed and so
5:35 am
he's now in this pickle where he's trying to essentially undermine the law in the hope that it will make it look worse over time and that people will blame plays it and obama there's really not a lot of evidence that's happening in fact what's happening is that democratic and republican governors are trying their best to make the thing work despite the best efforts of president trump and many republicans in congress it's a very strange situation.
