they targeted some of our military personnel we are aware of these people their elements and plans of provocation we know the means that they use i mean they have targeted the military with armed ammunition but these are all laws were using barricaded areas to target some of our soldiers one of our soldiers was killed also people from the medical team were injured we reaffirmed that we are monitoring all those laws and we know who are infiltrating in our provoking the military and all their components. some protesters are questioning the military's version of what led to see the escalation of violence morgan is following the story from khartoum they're asking the question if the military is sure that these people though who provoked the the military and the rapid support forces are among the protesters why did they not make a move earlier why did they wait until things escalated and there was loss of lives that's questions they are asking and they're saying that they were eyewitnesses who saw the rapaport forces firing at protesters and we've spoken to some of the people
6:03 am
who have been receiving treatment at the medical clinic set up at the square and they're saying that they were sure that they've seen men wearing the uniforms of the opposite sort of support forces attacking them so the the military as much as it's denying the fact that their forces and their rapid support forces have anything to do with the attacks on the protesters and the death of the protesters as well as the death of one of their members they're going to have a hard time to to earn the confidence and the trust of the of the protesters after what happened tonight. now an unnamed u.s. official is glooming iran for explosions on 4 ships off the coast early on sunday officials from the united arab emirates confirms that commercial cargo ships were subject says so what they called acts of sabotage your the ports of gera incident happened a 140 kilometers south on the straits of hormuz elsewhere around a 3rd of all oil traded passes well earlier on a monday
6:04 am
a member of iran's national security commission said that whoever is behind the explosions is trying to instigate a war about them to. them han what happened at the port of fujairah is still vague and unclear but it seems that there are some in the region who want to drag trump into a war and we are dealing with some issues with very high historical responsibility and i think to talk about explosions in fujairah is just a hasty scenario and suffers many shortcomings whoever stands behind this is pushing for a failed plan which. georgia has more now from washington d.c. it's a centcom official is confirming to al-jazeera that at the request of the united arab emirates the u.s. military is helping in their investigation now the associated press is reporting that apparently all 4 of these of vassals 2 saudi ships one amorality ship and one norwegian ship were all a hit with explosives and have
6:05 am
a hole in the water line of their vessels about 5 to 10 feet wide and that of sensibly means that they're no longer sea worthy and they've had to go into port so that they can try to be repaired the question is whether or not this is in fact the work of the iranian government or of proxies for the iranian government no one wants to address that question not even brian hook who is the state department's special envoy for iranian matters he was a. asked about this by reporters overnight as they were leaving brussels headed for sochi russia and he would not comment on whom he thought might have been behind this attack was certainly there is concern here in washington as well as in the gulf about this kind of attack especially in light of the growing tensions between the united states and iran. the european union has told the u.s. secretary of state that it fully supports the international nuclear deal with iran
6:06 am
and cold on the u.s. to show maximum restraint might pompei you held talks with the u. foreign ministers during an unexpected stopover in brussels the block's foreign policy chief expressed concern that u.s. strategy towards tehran carries grave risks last week iran announced it was scaling back some commitments under 2015 nuclear deal michael dell heard that very clearly today from from us not only from myself but also from the other ministers of in understates. we are living in a crucial delicate moment where. the most relevant. attitude to take the most responsible attitude to take is that we believe should be and that of maximum maximum restraint avoiding any escalation.
6:07 am
reports now from brussels. well the u.s. secretary of state might pompei may have come to brussels hoping to persuade e.u. foreign ministers to drop their support for the 2015 iran nuclear deal but he would have left disappointed the e.u.'s foreign policy chief federica more greeny made it very clear indeed that member states still feel very committed to the iran deal she said that it is still the best bet for regional security and earlier in the day we heard from some foreign ministers including the german foreign minister heiko massoud said this deal is all about stopping iran from having nuclear weapons well more greeny also called on both sides on both tehran and washington to deescalate tensions she called for calm and she called on iran to continue complying with the 2015 deal she said that was extremely important so for iran had and as long as it does keep complying then the e.u. would support it ever since the u.s.
6:08 am
pulled out of the deal and re impose sanctions on iran it has set up a payment system called instax which deals with some a certain amount of trade between the e.u. and iranian businesses but so far that's only for small and medium businesses so it doesn't mean it means basically the big multinationals in iraq iran and daimler will be unlikely to resume trade with iran because they will not want to risk u.s. penalties nevertheless more greeny says in stocks which was supposed to be up and running in a few months may now be up and running in a few weeks and that perhaps is an indication that e.u. member states are serious about trying to look as if it least they are doing more. of the reaction from toronto here's on just the resume. well iranians will also tell you that they've been saying all along that they do not want a confrontation they do want not want a conflict but they won't back down from a fight both sides at some point have said that open conflict is not something they
6:09 am
want but both are on a very aggressive footing and iranians will point to the fact that mr proper may be saying what he's saying now but the fact is that very publicly they made a great demonstration of sending more american military hardware to iran store step iranian leaders both civilian and military have responded very very angrily to that in the last several days in the past week now as far as mr pumping his comments with regards to what the iranian people might want what the iranian people might deserve iranian leaders and iranian people here in the country will be listening to that and be thinking that they really got what they wanted from the 2015 nuclear deal that was improving the country's economy it was a policy success for the moderates for the reformists in government and it was going towards changing the dynamic between the united states and iran as far as negotiations as far as talking before the deal was signed in 2015 there was
6:10 am
a run of months and years of of talking to each other so there was a creation of forward momentum with the deal iranians have been saying that the united states pulling out of the deal is a signal that it cannot honor its agreements. and u.s. markets closed sharply dyna on monday as the trade off between the world's 2 largest economies continues to escalate beijing has retaliated against america's new terrace with fresh g.t.s. of its own when u.s. imports are white house correspondent kimberly hall catch reports. from electronics and appliances clothing and shampoo u.s. consumers are bracing for increased spending on products they use daily as a result of the hike of u.s. duties on chinese goods put in place last week by u.s. president try. our economy has been very powerful then despite the escalating trade tensions transposed to china is hurting and needs to negotiate a new trade deal with the united states we're in
6:11 am
a great position right now no matter what we do yeah i think china wants to have it because companies are already announcing that they're leaving china because they can't do that they can't compete but even if trump was downplayed the effects of the trade war and u.s. consumers china had already retaliated escalating the trade war even more raising tariffs on u.s. goods sold in china effective in june from 10 to 25 percent. last friday u.s. china trade talks ended abruptly with the u.s. side arguing discussions had been constructive but not enough for a deal. trump insists u.s. tariffs won't hurt americans but soybean farmers that export to china are already taking a hit with cotton and pork also seeing a slowdown trump's own economic advisor at mit it over the weekend american consumers are going to feel some pain again both size both sides will suffer and
6:12 am
that is the uncertainty has rattled world financial markets and made investors nervous we're not at the beginning of the end we're at the end of the beginning and unfortunately we know from history that it's much much easier to start a trade war than is to end one especially if you've done what the u.s. has begun to do here which is really make it a pride and autonomy question for people. most u.s. companies believe china does not abide by global trade rules but for months large u.s. retailers like wal-mart the rely heavily on chinese imports have been urging the trumpet ministration to finalize a trade deal but donald trump hasn't ruled out adding even more tariffs to chinese goods brought into the united states the tensions could play out for weeks trump says he'll next meet with chinese president xi at the g. 20 summit in japan in june where the 2 will try to resolve their trade dispute kimberley health at al-jazeera the white house. well gabriel elizondo a new york casting want to change the markets for the dow and the s. and p.
6:13 am
monday was the worst day since january 3rd that gives you an idea of how bad it was with this huge sell off some of the world's biggest companies taking big hits let's look at apple the world's biggest technology company their stock dropped 5.8 percent about 80 percent of apple's products come from china so you can see why they took a big hit boeing one of the world's biggest makers of airplanes their stock dropped 4.8 percent that's over fears that china might try to target boeing with new tariffs and then caterpillar which is one of the world's biggest makers of heavy machinery and construction equipment they have 8 offices in china alone they were dropped their stock dropped 4.6 percent so you can see that you have very various companies some of the biggest in the world from different sectors of the economy
6:14 am
all taking very very huge hits but what was interesting is out of the 30 companies on the dow 29 of them finished in the red on monday and so even companies that really don't have anything to do with the trade dispute between the u.s. and china they still also saw their stocks tumble on monday as well as one economist told me he said there's no longer a chinese economy there's no longer an american economy there is a global economy he said so as soon as this trade dispute started and as long as it continues you will see potentially a global downturn i would not say that there is necessarily panic here on wall street traders don't like to use the p. word but i will say there is a lot of worry. well it's more still to come on al-jazeera the united nations says a severe droughts in angola is busy thousands of children at risk of starvation. and concern is growing for the safety of 3 well known critics of thailand's
