weeks of public demands for him to go but the protesters say everyone linked to both of leaders government needs to be removed that includes. a long time beautifully ally and the man appointed under the constitution to act as interim leader and who is in a presidential election it's for july the fourth protesters are also calling on some of the military's top leaders to resign including general argument going home protesters accuse or not doing enough to rid the country of what they call look or the power a group which they say has been secretly running algeria in the shadow of former president bush of flicka judges if you go to jail algeria has its men algeria doesn't need you there are plenty of people that can rule geria we want them all to leave. all the garden they all need to go we want to tell guy they need to know that the people have empowered us to get rid of the gangs. it's not needed speaking
it's forty million algerians women men old people young people on the streets all of these people are asking you in the name of everything that's holy to leave the country alone to leave its people be algeria is a great nation it's greater than any of. the interim government maybe hoping that electing a new president will be enough to satisfy the protesters but the economy is struggling unemployment is high and demonstrators like these say they'll stay on the streets until all those they blame it all gee whiz problems are forced to go rob matheson. world joining us here in the studio is. professor of political science and international relations university professor is the regime really positioning itself to stay in power here. it seems like you. know that the been such a high. has been confirmed as the defacto president for the next ninety days came
with statement to say that we are going to go ahead with this transition period so do it seems is stay in for the be and the people on the other hand have a different view ok as far as the people are concerned this is the eighth consecutive friday of their demonstrations can they keep this going. all the signs suggest they would keep the way it is the eight fly the deed but it could also be seen to first friday we've been santa so but i was confirmed as the defacto president last tuesday and this is the first opportunity for the people of julia. to say they are not happy with him and to insist that he and should go elections are being planned for july the fourth for the sake of transparency they've got to be seen to be free and fair but how do the demonstrations color the process between
where we are today and when people go into the ballot the voting booths i think the dates of the elections and also when the results will be done are very very symbolic to the julians first of all the effort on the for the independence took place on the third of july one thousand nine hundred sixty two and algeria as independence we came awful on the fifth of july sixty two some people would be in doubt the date of the elections is deliberate the fourth of july and the fifth of july we will have a new elected president meaning independence from this system but jillions on the whole are saying that elections will never be free and the current arrangements these people because people we cannot have a free and transparent elections and when you talk about beautifully because people how do we explain very specific anger directed at the very clear individuals i mean those general mohamed salah people who are really really annoyed with him at the
gates is basically did to the chief of staff people are annoyed with him because he he holds the key to everything in his different statements in the past he said that you listen to the people he's called for but for the court to believe mood was based on the demands of the people and the people out there lead him now we are we are asking you to get rid of those people who were. invoked article one hundred seven of the constitution to try those people who basically. accused of treason and those who are allegedly we defer to the secret services. in his last statement is this is what the situation is we carry on as we are today so overall carrying on as we are today overall would it be fair to say the military that the regime is either completely deaf which is probably not or for some reason
just choosing to completely ignore the central message from all those demonstrators i guess they're completely deaf to it the. military is a little bit careful not to be seen to do what to do. for the instance but they will be listening to the voices of the people in today's demonstrations have been by come by this an extremely big and despite the actions by the government to prevent people from coming to argy is a lot of people. as well as the different cities and towns to out of jail you professor thank you so much and you can see there live pictures coming to us out of the algerian capital algiers clearly thousands of people still on the streets as we've been discussing in the past five minutes or so this is the eighth consecutive friday that demonstrators have taken to the streets they certainly believe the regime is positioning itself to stay in power as the professor was just saying the
elections on july the fourth they've got to be seen to be free and fair but how can they be free and fair question mark in the run up to election date given the atmosphere on the streets and given the reaction to the demands of the demonstrators from the military in algeria those are the latest live pictures coming to us here in doha on al-jazeera. lot more still to come for you here on the news hour including to cuban doctors working in kenya kidnapped by gunmen near an area controlled by al shabaab fighters plus. this image of an israeli was isolated nothing could be further from the truth government leaders in venezuela dismiss u.s. threats of military action to remove president nicolas maduro from power. and in the sport with far one of the world's fastest horses is set to race for the last time details in about twenty five minutes.

conflict thirty he says it doesn't matter who wins as you don't guess he doesn't lose what he has built up over the years. what's your reading of this claim that after it has got some very influential very wealthy backers outside of libya and how might he utilize that wealth if he's given money by that country. well that's clear and he has been getting good support especially financial support from gulf countries on top of them saudi arabia and the united arab emirates and the us media reported or recorded saudi officials saying that. i have to has been promised tens of millions of dollars to support his offensive to recapture or to take to control of the capital. remember general have to was in
saudi arabia a visit saudi arabia days before he launched this offensive to move towards the capital tripoli and we know that saudi arabia alongside you know emirates egypt and france are the major supporters of. and saudi arabia generally supports an ultra conservative islamic trend or a movement that have to it's been utilizing it during his battles against his enemies in several parts of the of the country namely this salafist movements the really leading the battles for have to in several locations in all of libya now have to has been have his forces on the ground have been pushed back from locations in the southern outskirts of tripoli. they have they have recaptured several occasions during the last three days but earlier today government sources say that

we've had a few clouds passing by but mostly across much of the area it has been fairly good in terms of the sky condition but take a look at the newest video that has come in from southwestern parts of iran the water is still on the ground this is basically a disaster in slow motion where a lot of that water from upstream is now coming downstream to these southern areas and it's going to take if not weeks maybe even a month for a lot of this water to recede across the region now we do have a problem here on saturday we do it's going to see more heavy rain across much of the south this is going to push through as we go from saturday to sunday so we do need to watch this very very carefully up towards tehran it is going to start to get better as we go towards sunday night baghdad though is going to be a hot day for you with a temper there of thirty two degrees while that same area of rain we're going to be watching here in doha as well heavy rain has been a problem of the last few days in some areas and here in doha we do expect to see heavy rain as we go from saturday as well as into sunday dell also extend across
the u.a.e. even over here towards oman mascot you could be seeing a very rainy day few of the potential of localized flooding in the forecast with the time to there of twenty seven and abu dhabi a rainy day at twenty six. isn't the problem for your candidate that he may not have a health question mark over him but he does have a corruption question mark or really doesn't look good for the image visit the ticker is not going to do any we're probably not knowing about it what are you saying we really do get why there's a lot of disillusionment with the u.n. across the globe a cease fire that is called for and then breaks doesn't build confidence it breaks will join me man the hot sun on our front of my guests from around the world take the hot seat and we debate the week's top stories and think issues here on al-jazeera. al-jazeera. every.

protests in algeria demonstrators say they're not satisfied with the departure of the president abdelaziz bouteflika this month and wants an overhaul of the political this. meant. police in kenya have confirmed reports that gunman kidnapped to keep and doctors in the northeast of the country the attackers shot a police officer dead man dead or before driving off with the pair the city is close to the kenyan border with somalia and ethiopia catherine sawyer now from nairobi. this incident happened at nine am local time about six g.m.t. and these two cuban doctors a general practitioner not and a surgeon are part of an exchange program between the kenyan and cuban government that started last year so they were heading to walk at the main government hospital in monday our town which is right at the border with somalia companied by two police officers as is procedure in areas that are considered hostile like.
this gunmen intercepted the vehicle they were in to into saloon cars they came out shooting killed one of the police officers and we've also had from the police spokesman who has said that police have recovered the vehicle the government vehicle that was carrying the cuban doctors and their entire gating the other police officer who was driving that vehicle the police spokesman has also said that . the military and other security agents up assuming the kidnappers who have entered somalia and now time is of the essence because their father they go into somalia and specifically to territories that are controlled by al shabaab the more difficult it's going to be of security agents to rescue this doctors safely and no one has claimed responsibility but we've seen in the last few years more of such attacks kidnappings assassinations of toxin buses schools with towels quarries
and areas like that in areas along the border and this has increased after kenya sent its troops to somalia to fight al-shabaab with other african union forces and alongside some national army and you know we're talking about a border the kenya somalia border the ice porous very difficult to say to secure and we've seen a lot of movement in attacks that are happening in kenya for example seen many many of the attackers are able to cross through. from somalia to kenya with relative ease and in fact this particular incident comes just off the back of another abduction in another part of the counting south in kenya to be specific but still along the border when last year an italian humanitarian worker was abducted and the police are still looking for. the international criminal court has rejected a request to open an investigation into possible war crimes committed during the
nearly eighteen year long conflict in afghanistan judges cited a lack of sufficient evidence and state cooperation last month the us secretary of state mike pompei o said washington would provoke or deny visas to i.c.c. staff investigating such allegations the case was to look into alleged war crimes committed by afghan security forces the taliban and us forces to richard dicker joins us now here on news he is a human rights lawyer and director of the international justice program at human rights watch he's on skype in new york richard to is this just about a failure of evidence i don't believe. your everything from my reading of the judge's decision they have sent to lee true earn just notes on it. and say yes crimes were committed. in the i.c.c. as. it were no to
a master trials addressing these alleged crimes but nonetheless they are dismissing prosecutors request to me it's in concrete. by way of the judicial decision but why wouldn't the government cooperate with this surely it's in their best interest to address these big issues deal with them so you can close that chapter if you will and then move on. well i think that absolutely right. we've seen again and again justin is one who are crime it's mass slaughter and the use of rape it's. a weapon of war bringing some justice to victims who endure those acts is essential to a meaningful and durable peace and that's what the
i.c.c. prosecutor attempting to provide that judges in this instance have turned her request to do so now is it just too big to handle is it just too toxic because it might involve people it might cover people who've been involved across i guess the mosaic of afghanistan's very long and very troubled history. well the court's authority date back to two thousand and three and so that's nearly twenty years. but the prosecutor made clear that she was looking at policy. of. ice sits at an military and since as well as you know any smaller quantity to number crimes allegedly committed by u.s.
personnel even or there will be justin's war i fear no meaningful peace for those in afghanistan does it also send a government signal which might be really if your a bad guy in afghanistan even if you are an afghan you can get away with that if you're somebody that's been sent into afghanistan over the past twenty years that's the timeline we're talking about and you've done bad things you can get away with it. i think you put your finger just on it. but but perhaps the ramifications extend beyond afghanistan to the point where you perpetrate the most horrific crimes but that domesticity situation is such that investigations may not be feasible
then there will be no effort by the international criminal court whether it's in afghanistan or another country would it be possible to succumb navigate this decision and mounts a legal process granted it wouldn't be a whole legal process it wouldn't be complete with the afghan diaspora you know when when we were covering the mosques attack in new zealand lots of afghans have gone to new zealand you don't need to read the kite runner to realise how big that the afghan diaspora is up and down the united states i think you're absolutely right and i understand the gist of your query we are seeing efforts. among the syrian diaspora to bring them to account and he in courts in sweden in germany and france those who may be present in those countries alleged to be responsible for serious crimes back
home similarly the at and the asper as you're suggesting may be able to use some national courts to bring some small measure of justice but that will be far short of what the i.c.c. change sure we could have provided victims of unspeakable crime is that a compelling and to serve in conversation the same time thank you so much for joining us here on the news from new york. a u.s. military official has said the armed forces are ready to me. he's admiral craig fellow he heads the u.s. southern command and told foreign policy magazine intervention may be needed if sanctions fail to force the president nicolas maduro to walk away from being in power in america see a new man has more from. in more than venezuela. what is
the sinister star wars character darth vader and u.s. economic sanctions against venezuela having common. everything according to u.s. national security advisor john bolton he likens the sanctions to darth vader choking his enemy's throat that he says is what we're going to do to the regime economically that. the economic crisis already existed long before the sanctions but the u.s. strategy is designed to provoke the total collapse of what it sees as the enemy. the u.s. treasury department has designated not just venezuela's vital oil industry but its entire banking sector as a target of u.s. sanctions and that makes then israel almost untouchable for companies and banks the do business with the united states this is one of venezuela's main ports for bringing in everything from food to fertilizer to manufactured goods but as you can
see there is very little activity here according to the government this is because u.s. financial sanctions are scaring off shipping companies and those who do venture to dock here are charging a premium. the sanctions are of course taking a toll on venezuela's already crumbling economy and on ordinary citizens the theory being that they will provoke a painful but a relatively quick ouster of president nicolas maduro. recent history however disproves this theory. who are going to look at the sanctions against q. they remove the castro no they only hurt the lives of the cubans they remove assad in syria that they take out saddam in iraq or in zimbabwe know that you get rid of all of them because you applied sanctions no. in fact in the last three months the government has been busy finding ways to circumvent the sanctions and israel is
foreign minister travelling the world over closing economic cooperation deals in countries like turkey syria and south africa out of reach of sanctions. not to mention military and oil industry deals with russia. this had been israel or was isolated when nothing could be further from the truth we are working hard to diversify our commercial ties with all the countries there was much bigger than the united states and it's not the fifty countries that follow washington's orders. these efforts are unlikely to reverse the profound economic crisis but could give me more room to maneuver the u.s. vols to tighten the financial even further but if that doesn't work the united states could be tempted to resort to other more direct methods of obtaining regime change with all that they implied.
with the results is in the. result is still. early results but the main opposition. the president. which is now challenging the results. it is a city divided by more than the bosphorus strait istanbul is split in half into voters who backed president this ruling ak party and those who support the main opposition people's republican party the c.h.p. . that division was recently seen here at the ballot box in elections for a new mayor on march thirty first initial results but the opposition candidate.
narrowly ahead of her two aunts candidate banal yoder and. the c.h.p. party also won in the capital ankara but by a much bigger margin. the act party responded by contesting the istanbul result president claims that almost all of the voting in istanbul was marred by regularities. electorial board will announce the results and when they do if we have objections we will appeal wherever needed it doesn't matter whether we get a positive outcome or not. so far the country supremely actual council has granted only a partial recount across a stumble and has yet to reveal the final result. for meanwhile the c.h.p. candidate it's been attracting attention his supporters believe he has the makings of a future president is this some arms destined to become america's tricky cultural and economic capital feeling
a bruising blow to the president earlier ones policy. molo is confident that he is the winner. there's only one thing the ruling party expects and this is to a null this election and have a rerun i strongly oppose that this election's been won there are zero doubts or hesitations over the results and. using istanbul to the opposition would be a blow for president otherwise he launched his political career was the city's mayor in the one nine hundred ninety s. but people's concerns about the govern. it's handling of the economy appears to have been reflected in the results the national currency the lira has plunged nearly thirty percent in recent months inflation has risen and turkey is now in recession the ruling party was so confident that it would win here in istanbul that the morning after the election these giant poster sprang up across the city thanking people for their support. but those thanks may be premature.
back out as iran is stumble. iran is officially protesting against the u.s. decision to designate the islamic revolutionary guard corps as a terrorist group and a letter to the united nations as foreign minister said the move could have dangerous consequences. from tehran. was flag burning and death chants the usual friday protest in to her but this time one name featured more prominently than usual. it would have seemed impossible but attacking the islamist revolutionary guard corps one of iran's most important institutions has made us president donald trump even more unpopular just days after the u.s. decision to designate the entire i.r.g.c. as a foreign terrorist organization thousands of iranians came out to support their troops supporting the i.r.g.c. is the core of the country of course our army is good to the i.r.g.c. is more popular they had free hand i have something to tell trump in his
administration you have designated the i.r.g.c. a terrorist group but soon you will change the white house to a mosque iran's leaders have said the latest move is another attempt to divide iranians trump has often said the revolutionary guard has a track record of sowing violence in the middle east and suppressing its own people but it stage managed events like this there are no counter protests no alternate narratives the i.r.g.c. is far too strong to criticize opens up a lot but the fervor in this crowd can be taken as a fair measure of the national support the group enjoys the american decisions a brand new organization this terrorist has in iran by all accounts been a public relations opportunity for r.t.c. to rally their supporters in the country and to strengthen what was already a very powerful position in iranian society tens of thousands of fighters millions of volunteers and a hold on iran's industrial economy nearly every aspect of life is somehow influenced by the i.r.g.c.
beyond iran's borders the revolutionary guard helped push eisel out. of iraq and syria supports hezbollah in lebanon and recruits trains and supports groups in yemen pakistan and afghanistan it's a major player in the region one that america now considers a terrorist organization. i gotta tasneem gate if deciding to. say a terrorist group was stupid americans know they shot themselves in the foot with this act that put the security of american forces all around the world especially seemed to come forces at permanent rescue. in a letter of protest to the united nations iran's foreign minister condemned the trump white house accusing the u.s. of raising tensions to uncontrollable levels he warned of dangerous consequences and said responsibility for whatever comes next would rest on the shoulders of america and its allies in the region perhaps a reminder that iran considers american activities to be the most destabilizing force in the middle east or perhaps

that is the sudanese people and they do not want to show to that sound mission often that. two years of rule by a president on one of those. for the moment even though the rule of bashir has come to an end the protests look likely to continue. and does it. ok lets talk live as it was christensen let me who's at the u.n. in new york or so they saying that about this. well the united kingdom called for a meeting about the situation in sudan with the backing of other european members of the security council and the united states they've been expressing their concern over the situation there particularly since the curfew was announced they were the united kingdom has called for the protection of civilians there and also given some skepticism about the stated goal of turning things over to
a civilian government in two years the british ambassador to the security council said that seemed like too long of a time period for this to take place and earlier during a regularly scheduled meeting we actually heard from the deputy ambassador for sudan seeking to allay some of the concerns of the international community he spoke out saying that. the government was committed to this peaceful situation a peaceful handover to rule based on what the civilians what the people of sudan wanted but this is a man who just a week ago was working for president omar al bashir have a listen to what he had to say. the look at the him when what it will be the military transitional council was responding to the sudanese people's aspirations for china and works to protect the lives of its citizens as well as their well being this council will be the guarantor of a civilian government to be formed and collaboration with the political forces in
stakeholders no party will be excluded from the political process including two groups moreover the suspension of the constitution could be lifted at any point and the transitional period could be shortened depending on developments on the ground and agreements with stakeholders and. again that was deputy ambassador for sudan matt d.l. nor he went on to say that sudan's military government wants the support of the international community but he stressed that what was happening there is really a domestic issue now by way of background omar bashir is wanted by the international criminal court for alleged crimes war crimes and genocide charges related to dar for in sudan the in the united nations security council has been engaged in the situation in sudan for at least the last fifteen years it was the security council that actually referred bashir to the international criminal court
so we're hearing from the sudanese government they're saying we can handle this we're hearing your concerns but we're going to handle this at home it will be interesting to hear when the security council comes out of this briefing which should be taking place any moment now if they bring up the i.c.c. or stay away from that issue protesters in sudan rights groups have been calling for him to face justice but the government of darfur of sudan right now saying that bashir will face justice at home not at the i.c.c. kristen thank you. there are more protests across algeria despite promises by the interim president that elections will be held on july the fourth demonstrators are demanding the interim leader himself should step down too and the army is warning protesters not to make what it calls impossible demands rob matheson has more. clout in traditional robes this woman cries out to crowds of young protesters
seventy three my children are the algerian you just something like flowers in the spring you are the future i'm with you will be cherishing. in response the crowd cheers long live the old. demonstrations again an algerian streets despite increasing efforts by security forces to reduce the size of the crowds there was a roadblock king's there was. that impeded people from joining the capital. years and there was also the use of what can and against a student a few days ago there was also the use of sound. so i think this is also the military is sending signals that the message is we heard you indeed we gave you a few concessions about do not ask for too much it's been ten days since idolize
he's beautifully stepped down after two decades as president following weeks of public demands for him to go but the protesters say everyone linked to both of leaders government needs to be removed. that includes. a long time boot of leaker ally and the man appointed under the constitution to act as interim leader and who is in a presidential election it's for july the fourth protesters are also calling on some of the military's top leaders to resign including general argument going home protestors accuse or not doing enough to rid the country of what they call. the power a group which they say has been secretly running algeria in the shadow of former president a beautifully. if you go to jail algeria has its men algeria doesn't need you there are plenty of people that can rule geria we want them all to leave be all forgotten they all need to go we want to tell guy they need to know that the people have
empowered us to get rid of the gangs. it's not needed speaking it's forty million algerians women men old people young people are on the streets all of these people are asking you in the name of everything that's holy to leave the country alone to leave its people be. a great nation it's greater than any of. the interim government maybe hoping that electing a new president will be enough to satisfy the protesters but the economy is struggling unemployment is high and demonstrators like these say they'll stay on the streets until all those they blame it all gee whiz problems are forced to go rob matheson. u.s. secretary of state mike pompeo is reported to help talks with the saudi crown prince the guardian is reporting mr pompeo i mean been summoned to cut ties with a close advisor linked to the murder of the journalist jamal khashoggi. tunney has
