tackling radicalisation in fact pushing the youngsters to the fringes of society the impact is you don't think there's only so much of you can try before you say ok that's me rethinking radicalization of the radicalized youth syrians zira. sudan's i'm al bashir becomes the fast arab leader to visit damascus since the syrian war began nearly eighty years ago. hello i'm the star and this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up. twelve dead and fighting on the outskirts of the yemeni port of had data ahead of the cease fire set to start on choose day.
thousands out on the streets in hungary protesting against prime minister viktor orban and calling a labor of former slaves. and hitches its economic fortunes to a giant dam that's been more than forty years in the making. of president accused of war crimes has become the first arab leader to visit syrian president bashar assad in damascus since the beginning of the war nearly eight years ago state media quite sudan's president omar al bashir expressing his hope that syria will recover its important role in the region as soon as possible syria was expelled from the arab league shortly after war broke out and twenty eleven the assad government has been accused by the un and rights groups of committing multiple war crimes and it's not just stood on several arab countries of recently
indicated they may be willing to normalize relations with the syrian government in october president assad gave his first interview to a gulf based newspaper since twenty eleven he told the kuwaiti paper that western and arab delegations had already begun work to resume diplomatic and economic ties just a week earlier bahrain's foreign minister surprised observers by embracing his syrian counterpart. on the sidelines of a un general assembly meeting in new york and even neighboring israel has taken steps towards improving relations with the assad regime its connector crossing in the occupied golan heights was partially reopened in mid october under russian military supervision jordan also reopened the us of crossing into syria that same month not to hashimi is the director of the center for middle east studies at the university of denver he says arab countries want to cut tail iran's influence in syria. well i think they're trying to perhaps woohoo assad
away from his alliance with iran. the number one priority for the assad regime today after crushing all opposition to his rule is economic reconstruction the west is not going to invest in that economic reconstruction but there are very wealthy arab states that do have the resources the financial resources and so i suspect part of the agenda here is to see whether they that whether you know bashar al assad can be influenced financially. with reconstruction aid in exchange for weakening his alliance with iran you know if it wasn't for iran's. participation in the horrific war in syria over the last you know seven years bashar al assad would not be alive today and he said he would be in power so you are on has a huge amount of influence i don't think at the end of the day that bashar assad will break his alliance with iran and switch sides but i think what's i think much
more fundamental and i think what's uniting bashar al assad with other. arab states in the region is that bashar al assad and other leaders of the arab states in the middle east share a common national security concern and that national security concern is fear of their own populations fear of democracy fear of political change so in that sense they have a very common sort of set of concerns that they that they're trying to fight and push back against. well the e.u. is warning turkey against taking any further military action in syria turkish president. has threatened to enter the northern city of mann bridge if the u.s. doesn't remove kurdish fighters turkey considers them to be terrorists but they have partnered with the u.s. in the fight against eisel e.u. foreign policy chief federica maharani said turkey shouldn't undermine the u.s.

there's no end to the conflict. declaration of fermion is a technical declaration that relates to a number of indicators. and sometimes people think that the fact of feminism not that it doesn't means that people are not suffering no there is a high level of hunger in yemen we are supporting eight million people with food in yemen and we assume that if the humanitarian situation does not improve will be supporting forty million people mixed year and there is indeed hunger in yemen that is extremely worrying the question of calling it feminism's i said a strictly technical scene related to a number of remitting but emitters but the effect that was not declared does not in any way. diminishes the huge concern with the very high
level of hunger that exists in in yemen with the number of people dying in very dramatic circumstances and with effect that to be dealt because we will be facing in two thousand and nineteen much worse situation today saudi arabia has denounced a resolution by the u.s. senate accusing its crown prince of ordering the matter of journalist jamal khashoggi in a statement released by the saudi press agency the kingdom's foreign ministry calls it blatant interference in its internal affairs and describes the killing as a crime that doesn't reflect saudi policy turkey is accused european countries of turning a blind eye to the matter of jamal khashoggi the saudi journalist was killed inside the kingdom's istanbul consulate on october second u.n. secretary general antonio terra's has renewed his call for saudi arabia to investigate the matter properly then what has the latest from istanbul. it's been

doesn't know that that does not that he can't do this alone he does need the backing up and the full force of the international arena we do see the west trying not to be in wild with this but as we see that we also see president are the one pushing this and not let it go so she's killing sparked international outrage and condemnation but there has been little action against saudi arabia a un investigation would according to experts put more pressure on riyadh but there needs to be international political will. findings of this mission is not binding for both parties so this the shortcoming of this very winding missions are. they need a higher level of cooperation this has this. has. existed when it comes to the international commission want to enter to myanmar that has been established by the united. human rights commission in rome with has refused to and
through the country for the investigators a position saudi arabia is likely to take it insists it will handle the case on its soil turkish officials are growing impatient with what they describe as a lack of seriousness on the part of saudi authorities even president reza tell your border guard has been more outspoken he used to ovoid mentioning muhammad bin sound man by name he has now criticized the saudi crown prince's explanation on killing and accuse those who took an active part in the murder of being his closest aides turkey is not softening its stance but it continues to tread carefully to maintain ties with saudi arabia but pursuing an international investigation would hurt that relationship sen al jazeera istanbul thousands of people have protested in hungary's capital budapest it's the fourth demonstration this week

a year victor or vans majority in parliament allowed him to push through the legislation despite complaints from trade unions rights groups and opposition parties they say increasing overtime could harm workers health and the government shouldn't control the courts the government says it wants a more efficient legal system and a more flexible labor code i think what these protests suggest is that underlying the book you are. seeing action comedy as little. moment will resemble a discount. and this. comes to the fore when the government introduced. the seen by many as being against their interests the e.u. has seemed unsure how to respond to a government in one of its member states consolidating power by restricting civil liberties but in september the european parliament voted to impose sanctions on

a decision and we will take instruction from that meanwhile this continues to drag on even the former prime minister tony blair making the case for a second referendum was angrily rebutted by the prime minister saying that it was really quite a damaging argument to make and proving to be even more divisive so really there is shorter and shorter time with which to resolve this issue whether that issue of the second referendum will gather any continuous support on the for the british public as well is another matter that will be resolved bartz as has been said so many times in this debate time is running out. ranil vicar missing a is once again the prime minister of sri lanka he took the oath of office before president's my three policy center who sacked him almost two months ago sparking protests and political turmoil but serious senate was unrepentant accusing become
