representatives are holding a remembrance meeting to mark a hundred days since the saudi journalist jamal khashoggi was murdered your question joins us live from capitol hill where the event is is taking place so where does congress leave off with. a lawrence so far congress has taken no action on this new year if you remember the u.s. senate as one of its final acts the outgoing senate passed a unanimous resolution to hold saudi arabia's crown prince bin saw men responsible for the killing of jamal khashoggi and the idea at the time had been that once democrats took control of the house in the new year they would advance that resolution and even take the further step of calling for sanctions against m.p.'s himself all of those plans though fell by the wayside with this partial government shutdown and these new democrat sworn into office have made it their single promise to reopen the government as quickly as possible and to block any bills unrelated to
that purpose and so that brings us to today where there is still bipartisan momentum behind punishing saudi arabia further than what trump has advocated for in today's press event commemorating the one hundredth day since jamal khashoggi his death is intended to keep his name in the press and to know it to show the administration that despite trump's reluctancy to further punish saudi arabia there are still bipartisan members of congress who wish to do just that lauren thank you very much indeed. venezuelan president nicolas maduro has been sworn in for a second six year term but dozens of countries boycotted the inauguration ceremony and consider his role to be in a just image to use a bow has more from caracas. we're about fifty mg oxy away from where the swearing in ceremony took place and that the supreme court on the reason why it's happening
there it's a got the government continues considers the national assembly to be a contempt that it does not recognize that because it is controlled by the venezuelan opposition and the constitution says that if that if that if it doesn't happen at the national assembly which should happen at the supreme court you can see right behind me there's thousands and thousands of people but i've come here to show their support not totally for president. i don't know so for all the chavez socialist revolution they're saying that any changes that happened in venezuela be to happen with the revolution and that is this administration that needs to make the necessary changes to come out of the economic crisis that this country has seen in the last two years over three million people have left minutes without already many of them escaping the ongoing crisis for precedents from latin america i've come to this wearing ceremony also representatives from russia and china there have
been been members from the united states and from the european union a sequel of how to become more and more isolated in spite of that make model go so that votes not need to be here on this day are here for example q about the size of russia computers got to court. that they support the current administration however talk all the way from your first day startled by the old guard really worried about what really happened in this country that you say that was elected in any legitimate election where crowd was committed. and that they won't recognize his administration on the opposition right now is the absence of a national assembly they're going to announce what steps they're going to take in spite of this the government has said that if they continue through this battle about of not recognizing the current administration the national assembly could be shut down u.s.
president donald trump's former lawyer michael cohen has agreed to testify publicly before congress next month about his time working for trump his testimony could further damage the president's image and strengthen the investigation into russian interference in the twenty six thousand election in december cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for lying to congress and his role in paying out hush money while working for trump spanish police arrested fifteen people during an investigation into match fixing in tennis dozens of others are being investigated including professional players police seized nearly two hundred thousand dollars in cash and a number of luxury cars during raids on properties in madrid the arrests are connected to alleged fraud by an armenian criminal gang or she's accused the group of bribing athletes for betting purposes one of the tennis players competed in the twenty eighteen u.s. open but their identity has not been released. the german chancellor has visited
greece for the first time since the end of the greek bailout program and going to macro was instrumental in mobilizing european financial assistance to help greece restructure its debts and keep the country within the eurozone but macro strip did not just focus on the economy as john troposphere ports naf raffle's. the timing of angela merkel's trip leaves little doubt that it is largely to support the name changing deal between greece and the former yugoslav macedonia greece's neighbor is finalizing constitutional changes this week to rename the country north macedonia macedonia is also a region of northern greece and pressure is on greek leaders to ratify the agreement and that's a. good i can only say that this step that greek prime minister took was a decisive step from which not only greece and north macedonia profit but also europe as well as our common values prime minister alexis tsipras says he has the parliamentary votes he needs even though his junior rightwing coalition partner
independent greeks won't support the name change deal the very issue for near the precipice agreement is a very important step forward for stability security and by letter all economic growth and i believe it is a model for future agreements a blueprint for finding acceptable solutions most greeks don't support the deal and germany's support for it complicates an already difficult relationship the german government was instrumental in imposing austerity policies throughout the eurozone but nowhere have government cost cutting measures bitten more deeply into people's livelihoods than here to make you believe that there are no she hasn't helped greece if she wanted to help it government would have taken a different measures it isn't up to the government run the germany right now our children our grandchildren cannot be condemned to pay off loans until twenty sixty something has to happen we need to free ourselves from the german establishment. many greeks believe austerity caused as many economic problems as it solved taxes
and unemployment are still high growth is weak and even though greece was cleared to borrow for markets last august it hasn't sold a single government bond because markets aren't sure its recovery is sustainable merkel's trips to athens and twenty twelve thirteen and fourteen aimed at supporting the then conservative government sparks mass protests and a car bomb explosion hostility. from germany on the street is a reminder of how highly on equal the great german relationship is but it also serves to highlight how a one from and through your of a party was turned and that is politically useful for europe's leaders who face a gathering and he established one storm ahead of european parliament elections political reality is far from popular sentiment greece needs german support and merkel is keen to show an example of a nation improving under german influence jumps are open al-jazeera athens one of

up to sixty here many soldiers. all. right there in a vehicle on jorge now put it in a quietly on. a cart. or change your. trial you turn over to a shareholder so it was a callous same. guy sorry what's the situation there now reports of a home invasion are coming in. from forward towards a more. solid tumor to go on that was long. i mean the law for family members were seated around. kitchen table might a demand for case to the eddie. back at the front door go to. just a few you can just get to use to keep an eye out for
a black audi two thousand and thirteen. brazen crime isn't to kick you in the door someone's home while they're at home on. absolutely it is. violent home invasions like this have residents in these suburbs on age. in march and her husband gavin were sleep when four teenagers broke down the back door. i just remember. just yelling and just screaming at us to just stop and just give us money and i got him got out of the bed and. physically pushed we had two of them in the room and he got up and physically pushed them out and shut the bedroom door on them. he's then grabbed
a baseball bat from underneath the bed at which point the hammers come through the bedroom door multiple times of them trying to get in with us with literally our entire body way on the door trying to prevent them from getting to us. home security cameras captured gavin chasing the young men out the front but he couldn't stop them stealing both their cars. it's just it's too traumatizing for me to go back there a member. i don't know how they can say that. the crime rate is falling because everyone like everyone i know it doesn't nobody feel safe. the teenagers described as being of african appearance a still on the run what every time i see a black person on the street or. just anywhere it's like
a tree go. before all of this happened i wasn't scared of black people or people of color or. whatever but now it's psych i can even like face someone in a stall that's black because of what's happened to me and i think that's really unfair and shouldn't be like that. it's not it's not damn like that i haven't done anything wrong to me but i can't help but associate that with them as and that's what's really unfair. i would be pretty cool quantities of african gangs running riot terrorizing robbing
breaking after bush did you get to return to the north pole because your thought on . the i know you want what's. best sit outside will. you feel you have to bring your best behavior to enforce them because you feel like you're representing your skin color for one this is like you see you have to be extra nice person like extra small even if you're not feeling it that day you just have to have a smile on because if you don't you look scary istead it is like imagined someone's looking through you like looking like you know like someone's eyes are just burning inside of you had a sort of feels like sense to. me. pick up a stack and take it now but. then you. twenty year old tired him a separated at birth from his parents during sudan's brutal civil war bill he hasn't seen him since. when i was born. born it was happening so minimal that
separated my grandma being here she is and you know the strong lady she is to me with her because of that. i mean all your flash of. melbourne he's been his home since he was five. every day to try to convince you armstrong and i think you know what we know we're starting to grow up here who have to go why do washing has to convince young australian. on line is where ever they go tyson and his friends feel jantsch is just going to do to. you i realize it's not like one percent of us write this crime in every single race just. because it's. these people commit crime in every single race but with us for some reason it gets put onto the whole culture the whole.
whole you not cultivate gets blamed for the actions of the few now. to. try to. use the. gangs of young sides are threatening a violent confrontation at tonight's the system. police arrived to reclaim the streets because to light and they were outnumbered. because. the focus on african gang crime began in march twenty sixth jane when violence broke out at the moon the festival at federation square in the center of melbourne i. had to gird survey of african young people coming together in
melbourne there was a far cry get in because my rolling all if you like some of that was because the place become involved or start to chase and they just people. pay more saying cheers plane fly those same people which i stand straight for place and that crowd already did in the media at the tom a lot of political pressure. on me sort of videos those stupid kids they got riled up right the did them stuff and they she should be a lie it's not right what they did i don't believe that all this in a stupid i'd place charged thirty seven people over the moon violence several links to a group known as the apex gang. just a bunch of young kids. from a small area largely people from. background although we did have some marys and
people from other pacific islanders in that group. apex was notorious for home invasions and carjackings in the city southeast police say at its peak the group numbered around one hundred thirty young men. but after an intense crackdown on apex police it's now been dismantled we just don't see them you know we're just not saying that that group. crimes anymore. victoria police are basing further criticism with claims they've lost control just street gangs has. there is a specific problem in victoria to do with people of african background. i don't see it is as a violent african gang crisis. certainly we have an issue we have an issue with our
youth in the state but i believe that we can timing that issue i've got everybody welcome to you know it tell me who worked before so i had detective acting inspector child is briefing her team before another night out on patrol so just be careful that you don't get tied up with other jobs you are specifically to respond to any higher leave they're part of a dedicated task force tackling youth crime in melbourne's west so the way we're task force came about as a result of the evolution of the home invasion offense and carjacking and breeze that was saying being committed by multiple. people born in sudan. make up zero point one percent of victoria's population but account for one percent of the state's alleged criminal offenders. young sudanese miles
are overrepresented insertion violent crimes allegedly committing close to ten percent of aggravated robbery in terms of numbers overall numbers for that hard crime. high impact crime the numbers are quite small when you look at youth crime in particular we have the second lowest crime rate in this trial productivity commission measures victoria now as the most fearful state in the nation why are people feeling so scared if crime is dropping yeah i think that's a really interesting one and certainly you know one of the one of the things that victoria police and the cumi really need to focus on. to people have to base cypher have to feel sayf so there's a lot of perception issues i think that we need to deal with as well.
