10:33 pm
a major problem in mexico that of more than forty thousand missing people that the official number one quarter of them a woman there an estimated twenty six thousand unidentified bodies catalogued by the state and since twenty sixteen more than eight hundred mass graves although we believe there are many more these numbers a terrifying even more worrisome is the fact that forced disappearances continue to occur. installations featuring the portraits of the forty three students like the one that we're at now in downtown mexico city is evidence that the subject is still very much on the minds of people here and we have to keep in mind mexico is coming off of the most violent year in its history so an announcement that the united nations is partnering with the mexican government to to increase security is a welcome denouncement but it may not be enough to convince critics who warn that human rights could still be violated through the further militarization of the country's national police. russian president vladimir putin has asked the

10:50 pm
the support of smaller right wing parties to form a coalition government so far benny. and says not conceded defeat and says what he achieved in tuesday's election is historic. it's a new morning we are waking up to information of final results we are waiting for real results i repeat and stress that this is a historic achievement he has never been such a big insignificant party that was formed with so many good people in such a short time the people talk to us the people want a different way and we are going to deliver it i told you that i came fourteen years this is only the first to morning there's plenty of work ahead of me of us nothing is over we are making our moves we surprised until now we'll see what the day brings. as speak to her dr hamid who is in west jerusalem for his heart and so no final results yet but we do have a clearer picture than we did last night. yes absolutely i mean as you said no
10:51 pm
final results yet but as you see now the picture shows that only benyamin netanyahu will be able to form a coalition and then will become again the prime minister of israel now those consultations with the president for the formation of this coalition should be starting next week the office of president rivlin has announced that actually for the first time in israel's history those full cetaceans will happen live on television for all israelis to see now the president's office say that in the sake of transparency but president really is also under a lot of pressure he's been seen as always favoring benny gantz rather than benjamin in his relations with the incumbent prime minister have been frosty times so we're going to have to we don't know exactly when that's going to start but sometime next week sunday maybe monday i think also the issue and certainly in
10:52 pm
the disappointed those who backed benny gantz is that fear that now with his coalition with partners benjamin netanyahu when he gets back to power will be able to legislature that will make him immune to some kind of a so it is a very complicated situation but those who are disappointed with the results of the elections do hope that the justice system will go ahead and many say that actually if he gets indicted in july then maybe. prime minister netanyahu will just be. prime minister of israel for a very short time thank you for that. in west jerusalem for the palestinian reaction nanita abraham is in ramallah in the occupied west bank how are the results and the prospect of having another term as israeli prime minister being viewed by the palestinian leadership and by palestinians in the west bank. so the
10:53 pm
p.l.o. secretary general saw a better part has said that israeli voters have bolted made for the continuation of the israeli occupation in the west bank and they've noted it voted no for peace let's note that israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has said in his election campaign that he's not willing to even talk to any israeli settler from the illegal settlements in the west bank and he is looking into expanding the israeli sovereignty over the west bank settlements now this is a move that the seen in more empowered by having the u.s. president donald trump in power i've spoken earlier to the p.l.o. committee member at hand and ashrawi and this is what she had to say i think the whole goals of the game are changing because now this clearly superimposing the date of all of historical palestine. and therefore they have totally cancelled and
10:54 pm
the agreements they have not only fight the two state solution they have totally gaited requirements of peace they have totally violated international law and so on so now we need a whole new strategy to deal with this. palestinians in the streets which we've spoken to before that exults came out say it doesn't really matter who leads the israeli government they believe that they mean to convey that contenders did not have the palestinian issue as a big part of their campaign they did not say how they're going to go forward with the peace process instead they were talking more about what much they can take out from the palestinian rights thank you very much for that need to abraham live for us in ramallah in the occupied west bank. is in position to secure a fifth term despite looming corruption charges he's expected to be indicted on three counts of corruption if convicted he could face ten years in prison it's now suspected of accepting expensive gifts from billionaires in exchange for favors and
10:55 pm
of providing favorable conditions to an israeli telecom provider in return for positive coverage on a website owned by the company he is also accused of colluding with the publisher of a newspaper to hurt its rival again in return for positive coverage as bring in our senior political analyst marwan bashar and marwan now it looks like we'll secure another term but with these corruption charges hanging over his head would it be a full time depends if he is able to arrive at a special deal with his coalition partners natural partners as he calls them whereby when they sign in on the coalition they also sign on a little piece of paper that says they will support him in. bringing a new resolution to the parliament whereby no sitting prime minister will be prosecuted while doing his job and i think he might be able to get more than sixty
10:56 pm
votes in the knesset in support of this new stance that would give him immunity i think the other bit about it is that even now the prosecutor in israel while he needs to carry the law as it were but the idea that the majority of israelis now will give him a fifth term. it needs to be taken in consideration in some form or another meaning the israelis or for some reason my my understanding my analysis of it is netanyahu has shown the israelis that they can get away with things without much price they can get away with occupation they can get away with war they can go get away with normalizing relations with the arab world without any concessions without any price and i think they are giving him their support and we've just had reaction from the us president to the israeli election results here is what donald trump had to say. i'd like to congratulate bibi netanyahu it looks like that race has been
10:57 pm
won by him and maybe a little early but i'm hearing he's won it and won it in good vacuum so he's been a great ally and he's a friend like to congratulate him now is a well thought out rate like that does. donald trump also said that b.b.'s victory next now is victory is good for peace with the palestinians what do you make of that you know i think in america there's a certain way of phrasing things for example for twenty five years we lived the idea is are you with or against the peace process so peace process became synonymous with peace the american peace process became synonymous with peace when after twenty five years we've all discovered during and after that peace process is more about process than it is about peace everyone understood that peace process is one thing peace is another thing now there's an understanding that
10:58 pm
trumps a deal of the century is the new peace proposal the new peace process so basically president trump like his predecessor is confusing peace with america's proposals for peace could we seen as now make any sort of concession under this so-called deal of the century i think it's a concession here is quite an exaggeration because everything has already been conceded. to the israelis by the americans whether it is on that is jerusalem settlements the borders the sovereignty on source of what the israel has really gotten everything that it needs there's nothing that it can really concede to the palestinians if the word concession me is meaningful because in the end of the day the israeli is illegally occupied illegally settle a land that is not theirs so for them to give it or give it back is not really much of a concession and yet they're not even asked to do the. thank you very much for your analysis as always in other world news sudan's president is under increasing
10:59 pm
pressure as western nations their voices to call so political change on tuesday protesters held a fourth straight day of a city not side the army headquarters in cancun that continued into the night random ahmed has our report. i tens of thousands of people calling for change they gained gathered outside army headquarters in sudan's capital khartoum for a fourth day and stayed into the night i. think we need clean water and no more unfairness we've had enough on it before but we are starving under this president we have been displaced because of him. just a day earlier security force personnel opened fire on demonstrators staging a sit in but later some soldiers intervened and others expressed their support for the demonstrators. and this is
11:00 pm
a message to our colleagues in the armed forces that people here are brothers and have a right to speak their minds a spokesman for the military says the armed forces and security forces remain united the mold i hope but i mean what about the police national security and intelligence forces are supported by the army we needed to consider certain things before moving the enthusiastic protesters outside the area the very well prepared plan has helped us to control the situation in a peaceful way. the protest is a calling on the army to withdraw their support for the government and opposition leaders say they are seeking talks with the army to plan a transitional administration and they now have the support of the u.s. u.k. and norway the three countries said in the statement sudanese authorities must now respond and deliver a credible plan for this political transition. refusing to step down president al bashir recently chaired a meeting of the country's supreme commission for national dialogue has long been
11:01 pm
accused of human rights abuses and corruption the was anti-government protests started last the same.
