12:04 pm
. i'm. a forensic expert says the doctor was shot from behind. we found pieces of metal in the room and in the lower part of his lung they'll be studied to determine the caliber and the type of weapon used a. sedan a security forces and police deny any role in the killing of protesters with the. us police never used any law of fire to any protest sites or any other occasion we never use live bullets in any situation. the same denials have beery eatery today by the head of intelligence and the target of the protesters anger president on bashir. the governing securities and kill people the weapon that's being used to kill dr about europe the home it is not of any type that our police possess or any that existence today. by god i say it's the regime that killed my
12:05 pm
son i will never doubt my certainty about it but i give in on what i mean i'm sure they purposefully decided to kill doctors but my sister was arrested with the others they detained this told them that they were specifically looking for doctors who helped protest. the type of force being used by the government to quell the protests is adding to the controversy and confusion about the killings the government has employed militia to help the army combat armed groups in sudan for decades what's attracting attention now is militiaman our mosque in their faces while attacking an armed civilians in the streets of khartoum and other major cities and i think what they what they think it then there is a very dangerous and unprecedented situation now when men in civilian clothes can carry guns battens a mass their faces to confront protesters this proves the existence of a shadow army which is seen years ruling party leader talked about and yet you see
12:06 pm
him move anyone with him who do. as protesters chant peaceful peaceful they are drowned out by gunfire and tear gas scenes of collective punishment like this are say the government's opponents at the local us. so is the breaking into homes security forces severely beat anyone suspected of hiding protesters. the government says twenty six people have been killed so far in the month of protests to demand the better life rights groups say the total is at least double that the government's announced the setting up of an official commission of inquiry but protests that broke out over the rising of the cost of living last month continue to intensify and spread across the country and with every new protester killed hundreds more turn out demanding an end to the thirty year rule of president bashir . dizzier. now more protests are expected in the over the
12:07 pm
coming hours people are saying that they will not stop demonstrating against president obama and bashir the president is not in the country at the moment he's heading to qatar to talk to the qatari emyr and to try to discuss ways to get this country out of the current crisis it's in but he's repeatedly accused the protesters of being traitors he said they've been infiltrated by people who have foreign had an agenda is now they've also the government has also announced it has arrested people from from the group. who is one of the dire for a rebel leader as they've been accusing darfur rebel groups of trying to infiltrate the protesters and killing the protests to protesters to try to destabilize the country there's no solution right now and it doesn't seem like this demonstration against the president is ending anytime soon but the president has been very defiant the people who have been protesting have been demanding that he step down but he says he's not going to step down until elections come in twenty twenty so it's not clear how long this will go on for and where it would end already but more
12:08 pm
when god's will be better thank you. as human rights commission is accusing security forces of systematic torture after recent protests that turned violent as well. as return home from a trip abroad and called for a national dialogue to address the protests over rising living costs activists said in the time he was away twelve people were killed and one got to use twitter to condemn demonstrations which he said were not peaceful but he also criticized the police saying. violence or misconduct by our security forces is unacceptable and a betrayal of the new zimbabwe chaos and insubordination will not be tolerated misconduct will be investigated if required heads will roll well for more on this to speak to david money a senior political analyst at the university of johannesburg in south africa and zimbabwe's president has called for a national dialogue in the face of these protests but can zimbabweans trust this man with the government's also talking about cracking down hard on the protesters i mean seems to me there's
12:09 pm
a big contradiction in terms here isn't there. indeed i think them but when they have no choice other than to dialogue the situation has deepened to an extent that there are no goods on the shelves in our in all other areas there's a shortage of food all the currency situation has reached a point that the country has to do something else and running out of options i think what is required is to step back a line is the politics by bringing in the opposition to a negotiating table and try to salvage the situation bringing in stability and deal with the deep crisis which is more economical than political yeah i mean much of the public despair has been about the rise of fuel prices but is there a much wider anger as you've been saying about the dire economic situation in which the country hasn't improved under the new president.
12:10 pm
yes and the situation is that they had elections and it appears that the opposition has quite a number of complaints containing the presidential part of the elections while the parliamentarian elections the zanu p.f. controls much gerrity so the contradictions in terms of. the rule of law the constitution itself let go for reforms whether it's in the military or other institutions such as the electoral commission itself there is a need to bring wins to discuss and buy time in terms of having. changes tweaking the constitution and ensure that they deal with the economic issues at the same time until the proper elections next five years david just
12:11 pm
a final thought from you you mentioned the opposition there i mean the m.d.c. claims that many of its party members have been detained including four members of parliament is there a sense the government is perhaps using the current crisis as a way to crack down on the opposition itself. no doubt about it i think this is what the zanu p.f. government has been doing all along. this leg of speaking with one voice within the government itself it appears that when ever the president leaves the country they seem to be disturbances and these options are not working i mean the need for a proper solution that is discussions are bringing all stakeholders on board they would money thank you very much indeed for talking to al-jazeera. now a taliban attack has killed at least sixty five afghan intelligence and security personnel southwest of kabul the suicide and gun attack happened in the maiden shah the capital of wardak province the attackers drove a truck packed with explosives into
