6:09 am
are all part of a concerted campaign by the trumpet ministration to tarnish the reputation of one of china's most successful and profitable companies they will feel these charges are without merit anticompetitive and in the case of one man joe the chief financial officer of weiwei who is now being held in vancouver pending her extradition to the united states an abuse of her human rights there is also i think suspicion here in china about the timing of these charges because they come almost on the eve of the resumption of trade talks between china and the united states those talks are being held in washington there is a truce at the moment in the tariff war between the two sides but that truce is due to expire in just over a month's time so these talks may be the best and last chance to avert an escalation of the trade war and china will feel that perhaps these new charges
6:10 am
against weiwei are aimed at trying to give them leverage in those talks there is also going to be concern that the united states has confirmed it will indeed press ahead with the extradition of mung and that could well escalate the current diplomatic spat between china and canada because china is demanding the canada free her the man leading the u.n. team tasked with overseeing the truce in the yemeni port city of her data stepping down retired dutch general patrick amat is leaving his post just one month after his arrival reasons aren't clear it comes as a u.n. envoy for yemen marty griffin has confirmed the timeline from both warring parties to withdraw from her data at a prisoner swap deal has been perspire own for now. the french president has criticized egypt's human rights record during a visit to cairo and what micron says the situation has worsened during president
6:11 am
of all federal since his time and are the reports now from perth. so far emanuel macross first trip to egypt is proving to be a delicate balancing act the french president wants to boost cooperation and trade with cairo while delivering a strong message on human rights and what president since he came to paris in october twenty seventeen we had a long discussion about that and i think things have not gone in the right direction since then since that time there have been bloggers journalists and activists who've been imprisoned that is a reality and though i have respect for egypt i cannot ignore this president abdel fattah el-sisi suggested that egypt needed no lessons in human rights was a length of b.g. it will not advance by bloggers egypt will thrive and work on effort on its children's perseverance we are doing economic social political and religious reform for macro it was a change of tone from the twenty seventeen meeting with sisi at the time he said it wasn't france's place to lecture egypt over civil liberties some campaign is and

6:13 am
always best on an alliance with egypt to solve regional issues but it's misguided efforts between france and egypt to find a solution for libya has been a total failure and on other issues egypt has lost much of its power and credibility. mike ross always said that he's a president who believes in talking frankly on this occasion it's an approach that may please campaigners but is less clear what impact it will have on future relations between paris and cairo natasha butler al jazeera paris. journalist mahmoud hussein has been under arrest in egypt for more than two years his imprisonment has been repeatedly extended despite international calls for his immediate release he was detained on a trip home to visit family in car and accused of spreading false news the charge that hussein and al jazeera tonight journalist has never been formally charged cameroon's a main opposition leader has been arrested maurice succumbed to his party is held

ramallah in the occupied west bank. for months now palestinians in new york apart west bank have been protesting with the frequency and in numbers that haven't been seen in years not against the israelis but against the palestinian authority over its plans to impose a social security law involving a new compulsory contribution from workers many of whom don't trust to get the money back in the future now president abbas's fatah party has announced consultations on forming a new mode of government consisting of factional members of the palestine liberation organization and in doing so has frozen the implementation of the social security act pending cabinet confirmation what clearly we have today is giving the blessings of such accommodations regarding form anything in your government yet we would wait for the cabinet to more or and the announcement of the cabinet for an insight into just how unpopular the measure has become just talk to people like muhammad amr and his wife mara mohammed works for the national insurance company

discriminatory aspects against women but above all else there's been a widening deficit in one vital commodity trust. political analyst says there's no reason to expect that to change an immediate future with a very system of governance up for grabs so how can you talk about this man think that it's an authority and in the same time you would try to convince the people then that there will be enough that to take it for instance and they will get it back mohammed omran says he doesn't even trust that this latest freeze on the scheme is real until he sees an official proclamation from the president himself he intends to keep protesting harry force at al-jazeera ramallah four police officers have been shot and injured in the u.s. state of texas two are in a critical condition police were serving an arrest warrant in a residential area of houston and they were attacked and two suspects were killed at the scene it was the first day back to work for hundreds of thousands of federal

6:22 am
best fix is to be able to do it legislatively but if congress particularly democrats in congress would rather play political games and actually do their jobs and fix the problem than the present will be forced to take a different path trump is not ruled out declaring a national emergency to force through the building of his border wall as little time for congress to reach a deal government funding runs out february fifteenth leaving federal workers to wonder what's next people buckle down and just try to get back to work and and see about going about the business of their day the congressional budget office estimates the shutdown the longest in u.s. history cost the country at least three billion that won't be recovered the impacts aren't just economic immigrants awaiting hearings before federal judges are facing months of delays in already backlog states like california new york and texas cross the country three quarters of immigration judges were off the job during the
