a long season so let's see how it goes at one stage it looked like rafael nadal would follow jack rich out the eleven time when it went down to breaks against argentina as we don't but he rallied brilliantly to take the opening sets on a tie break and then wrap things up six games to three in the second that are closer to a record extending twelve titles next up he plays italy's fabio fognini. the heavyweight title fight between anthony joshua and general miller is definitely off after miller attorney a second adverse drug test the american challenger was already blocked from getting a license for the june first bout after the first test he was appealing the decision but this second one has ended his hopes of stepping into the ring joshua will still fight at madison square garden in new york and his camp will announce replacement opponent next week. i.x.'s bid to reach the european champions league final has been given a huge boost with some help from its rival clubs in the netherlands the dutch

presidential candidate elizabeth warren calls for the impeachment of donald trump one day off to the public release of the reporters. caught in the crossfire a journalist is shot dead by a gunman. in northern ireland. and ukraine's president and the comedian challenging him for his job trade blows and a head to head debate on the eve of sunday's election. u.s. president donald trump has offered support to the libyan war. in a phone call the general is the leading a military campaign against the u.n. recognized government in the country have to praised story trump praised huffed up of fighting terrorism and securing libya's oil the warlords forces launched an offensive three weeks ago to take tripoli that's where the un recognized government
8:50 am
is based. comes despite comments earlier this month by u.s. secretary of state mike pompei or expressing concern over a half dozen vaunts on the capital mike hanna has the latest from washington d.c. . one must remember that two weeks ago the secretary of state or sharply criticizing huffed and his forces for their latest offensive and certainly this is now a massive turnaround with the president. after and effectively giving him support and praising him thanking him for his efforts against terror and also thanking him for what the white house describes as protecting libya's oil resources now the internationally recognized government in tripoli regard this as a theft of libya's oil resources so certainly this is a very puzzling question a very puzzling turn around why it's being kept quiet for the week well there was a u.n. security council meeting thursday in which to everybody surprise the u.s.
8:51 am
refused to back a resolution introduced by the u.k. asking for a cease fire in tripoli in libya there by agreeing with the russians who had objected to the resolution because it mentioned have to has forces by name as the aggressors in the conflict so that was perhaps an indication that was the first sign that there has been a shift in u.s. policy not even a shift a complete somersault from posing the afters forces to now apparently siding with egypt saudi arabia and the u.a.e. in supporting the huffed initiative and to tripoli now where our correspondent went out to right here has been following developments. people here seem to be angry about this support from president. especially those demonstrators whole took to the streets today and to diminish squares in civil
8:52 am
cities and the worst of libya especially in the capital tripoli and the city of misrata the major cities in the west of libya they say that there is some kind of contradiction in the american situation libya specially they were happy when. you in an interview in a television interview said that must set down and must stop the military escalation on tripoli but when they heard the border from president trump to have to via this call it's kind of good to have here or are you doing well people here have become very angry this say that they're wondering whether or not there is more important than people's blood here. over two hundred people were killed since have to launch at this military oftens of
8:53 am
one tripoli on april fourth many of them are innocent civilians women and children . earlier i spoke to anas al gore marty who is a political analyst and director of the tripoli based phatic institute he says trump's call is intended to show support to have to backers rather than to the warlord himself. libya lies in the center stage of the arab spring and there are some powerful forces military and political that will be behind this now in the days preceding after school rather in the days following up a school that had been much more many many calls from the united arab emirates and result personally cooled trump has also met with a presidential envoy in the united arab emirates. the foreign ministers also met with and is this the can to open and there has been several other attempts by the u.a.e. including sisi who is also part of that. authoritarianism gregg and crowd in the in the arab world and i think they're trying to after to that to that crowd and i
8:54 am
think it's not the endorsement of how there is offensive after loops defensive in front of and to look at errors two weeks ago on the fourth of april and doesn't really care about it wasn't he wants to go to his own wanted this is much more about and also copters backers the u.a.e. egypt do have military assets on the ground they do have an air force that they've used in libya since as early as doesn't have a drone force that is allegedly manned by must be forces that are controlled and operated by eric prince only a blackwater they have an incredible amount. of force and military forces that they can use that escalate because a mile and a half there seems like is dwindling in this metric tons and so we're also going to look behind the scenes here and look away from the smoke and mirrors after is trying to use this for his credibility purposes but more than anything it's the u.a.e. that has been trying to avoid any form of the public scrutiny that whitens from towards this you know with proper techie has arrested two palestinian suspects who allegedly confessed to spying for the united arab emirates the two men are
8:55 am
reportedly accused of wanting members of how last and the muslim brotherhood texas media reports one of the men arrived in tech in october last year just days after the matter of saudi jenna's jamal khashoggi police are investigating a possible relationship with the crime of passion has more from istanbul. two palestinian men have been arrested in istanbul they've been charged with political military and international espionage the palestinians were initially detained in a hotel in is stamboul officials confiscated an encrypted computer stashed in a hidden compartment sources say the men allegedly confessed to being intelligence operatives working for the united arab emirates and they were here specifically gathering intelligence on arab dissidents and students after the arab spring in two thousand and eleven many arab dissidents came to turkey to live in exile sources
8:56 am
tell us the men were under surveillance for six months during that time they contacted turkish analysts made inquiries about qatar's foreign investment in turkey the two countries are close allies the u.a.e. is part of a saudi backed blockade against qatar intended to isolate the country the men also allegedly contacted a suspect in the. murder case. was murdered inside the saudi consulate in istanbul last october there was international condemnation at that time the u.a.e. and saudi arabia are close allies now sources are saying that shortly after quiz show g.'s murder the first operative entered the country the second soon after to help with the workload but the focus of the investigation appears to be on spying on arab dissidents in turkey and there's the thought that given the strained relations between turkey and saudi arabia turkey and the u.a.e.
8:57 am
and turkey and egypt that perhaps the u.a.e. was attempting to open up a new avenue of intelligence gathering in turkey and now to the fallout from the public release of the reports the u.s. department of justice has dismissed a subpoena requesting an uncensored copy of the report as premature and unnecessary and redacted version was released on thursday can be held as has more from washington. as u.s. president donald trump arrived fur golf game at his club in florida back in washington democratic members of congress renewed demands and issued a subpoena for an unproductive version of special counsel robert muller's report by may first on a working visit to northern ireland during a congressional recess nancy pelosi the top democrat in the u.s. house of representatives again play down talk of impeaching the president that this time she didn't rule it out the congress of the united states will honor its oath

of office to protect and defend the constitution of the united states to protect our democracy we believe that the first article article one the legislative branch has a responsibility of oversight of our democracy and we will exercise that the conclusion of congressional democrats after reading what they call the selectively redacted four hundred forty eight page report is that while the special counsel declined to prosecute a sitting president muller did call on congress to investigate whether trump obstructed justice and tried to stop the investigation into russian interference in the twenty sixteen u.s. election on friday morning trump tweeted using profanity he lashed out at recollections of his statements in the report calling the fabricated and the investigation an illegal hoax congressional republicans are promising their own investigation into whether law enforcement agencies like the f.b.i.
8:59 am
may have exercised political bias to destroy trump's presidency democrats have announced they will hold a conference call on monday to discuss next steps this is far from being over and i'm sure that the house and the senate committees are going to be looking at every piece in turning everything because just looking in the special counsel looked at. the possibility impeachment i think everything's on the table and. this is not the end of anything but what happens next is now in the hands of congressional democrats newly empowered by the special counsel to act potentially dictating not only the terms of transfer mading time in office but also whether he might win reelection the twenty twenty presidential race can really help get al-jazeera washington and now the first member of the democratic field of presidential contenders is calling for donald trump to be impeached senator elizabeth warren
