5:02 am
yes well this attack took place just over 3 hours ago 7 45 in the morning local time on a tuesday morning so of course it would have been very busy in this area at that time of the day just down the road there is where the attack took place there is a train station down there and also as you mentioned a bus stop and it appears that most of the people who were attacked were school children waiting at that particular bus stop on the side of the road for a specific bus to go to a private catholic school in the local area as you mentioned this is a fluid situation 2 people did at the moment although even that is not confirmed and they say that those people have no vital signs because they need to wait for an official doctor's report before the police will declare them did what we're hearing from hospitals in the area is that they are treating 16 people for stab wounds
5:03 am
among those 16 the police quoted in local media 13 school children and 3 adults now on waiting for that particular bus at that time were year one students grade one student so it is assumed that all of the school children or at least most of them who were attacked just over 3 hours ago were aged between 6 and 7 years old so a particularly harrowing incident just a few meters down the road just over 3 hours ago. thank you very much indeed. for the man said verdict in the european parliament elections as opens up divisions between france and germany on who should head the european commission and the americal says the president should be from the. the single largest bloc that's the
5:04 am
sensorites european peoples party but emanuel mcconnell says the decision must reflect the results of sunday's votes in which the far right as well as the greens and liberals gains at the expense of the centrists and such a bottler as this report. the face of europe's parliament is changing the traditional power blocs of the center right and center left that have dominated for decades lost seats as populists greens and liberal surged for the 1st time in 40 years since the 1st elections in 1879 of the european parliament due to classical parties socialists the. conservatives will no longer have a majority. nationalism and fears over immigration fueled gains for populous parties in france hungry and italy where matteo sell vinnie's far right policy won more than 30 percent of the vote. in in not only is the league the 1st party in
5:05 am
italy but marine le pen is the 1st party in france in the u.k. knowledge of the rajah's 1st so it's a the france england is the sign of a europe that is changing green parties in several countries celebrated their best e.u. election results highlighting concern among some voters and the climate change after ending the people all across europe want to form a peaceful europe together we haven't just got a great result in germany but as it stands in ireland and the netherlands in austria all across europe the greens are strong. the election results reflect a growing political trended me use 28 member states people are increasingly rejecting establishment traditional mainstream parties and supporting alternatives and voting for causes the center right european people's party remains the largest bloc in the e.u. parliament but with no majority it'll be forced to seek support to form a pro e.u. . coalition the sensorites uncensored left parties have scored badly they have both
5:06 am
lost. they have both lost votes but we see a 3rd party emerging which is the liberals at the moment so the liberal party. if one includes the votes from across is unlikely to become ticket kingmaker in the next european parliament. the european project was created after world war 2 to ensure the rivalries between countries would never again result in conflict while these elections show that politically europe is more fragmented than ever pro e.u. parties still retain a majority suggesting that although some voters may be questioning the european union most still believe in it natasha butler al-jazeera paris. well some of the most dramatic results were in the united kingdom where that c. major party suffered massive losses so he's amazed conservatives could only manage 5th place as the worst results in any election in the past 200 years and the
5:07 am
opposition labor party isn't doing much better it is inevitably older into brecht sits and a warning every challenge reports contains flash photography. this is the jubilation that comes with taking on britain's governing party and humiliating them in nigel for raj energize voters who feel betrayed it breaks not having happened is single issue bricks it party won over 30 percent of the vote the conservatives got just 9 percent the worst result in 200 years if we left directed straight to the conservative labor we would never ever really bring it to resemble the thing like what you vote for the referendum this political pressure of the pressure on the conservatives you called he's not wrong to reason may is on her way out and rivals vying to replace her will be drawing lessons from what's just
5:08 am
happened. when david cameron calls the 2016 breaks it referendum he was trying to heal his party's decades old divisions over europe and head off the electoral threat posed by nigel farage what it backfired spectacularly for iraq has just punished the tories yet again they are as a party more bitterly divided than they've ever been and it's hard to see how the next leader and prime minister is going to be anything other than a hard bricks into. the language of the candidates is already reflecting this i'm on message is clear from these results we absolutely need to deliver it i lead the campaign to take britain out of the european union and we must honor that referendum result. but start up the result. and there were actually more votes to remain parties than there were for the brits at party in u.k. independence party the liberal democrats surged to 2nd place stealing labor voters angry at jeremy cauldrons half hearted support for
5:09 am
a 2nd referendum i think it's very clear from the big picture of the results we now have a clear majority in the country who want to stop back so. most labor voters and many of its m.p.'s want the party to stem this bleeding by firmly advocating for another public votes jeremy corbyn says he supports this but he still focused primarily on winning power the priority at the moment i think is for this government to call for a general election and actually have a general election so we can decide the future has no majority in parliament is no judge to program and parliament has basically been given nothing to do by the government britain's political center of gravity is failing its 2 main parties have lost significant ground the parties voters feel better represent their views on bracks it's whether labor in the tory stranglehold on power is now over or just damaged isn't possible to say yet but calls to end the 2 party system coming from
5:10 am
the bracks of party and pro remain parties and now they'll be harder to ignore rory chalons al-jazeera london. well a surprise breakthrough came from the greens united stands to become the 4th largest bloc in the new european parliament's the greatest success for the environmentalists was in germany where the greens came 2nd 20 percent of the vote states to cover a 1000000 votes in the country's 2 largest parties they also came 2nd and finland on 16 percent and france saw a major upset with the environmentalist europe. pulling 13.3 percent make them the 3rd largest party in arlen's the green party treble this fall from 5 percent to 15 percent series up that was almost emulates in the u.k. when the greens vote share rules from 4.6 to 12.5 percent overall green parties are projected to take 69 seats in the european parliament's making them potential
5:11 am
kingmakers when it comes to choosing the next presidents of the european commission well earlier we spoke to how annoying men who's been elected serious parliament for the greens in germany she lays out their top priorities. it is a new situation in the european parliament that the best and then the a.p.a.p. will not be strong enough to form a coalition of its own so we will have a say in that and that's a good thing we will not so much focus on the personal we will be very strong on our content positions which is fighting climate change strengthening a social europe and strengthening basic european values and democracy democracy in europe so this will be our main focus and then we will have to discuss with everyone and see how much we can get what this for sure that we will focus on the spits and counted out so we are strongly saying that it's the european parliament that has a say and only someone who was running as a spitz and candida in the whole process will have the chance to become
5:12 am
a commissioner from our side we have to be very strong with the guts especially to pricing carbon dioxide so the carbon dioxid tax but the money shouldn't stay with the governments or with it you can commission it has to go back to the people to make it a social program and so basically everything that we tax on products for carbon emissions and all the money that is coming to the commission then has to be given back to the people so everybody was saving carbon dioxide and were saving on his or her missions gets money back whereas people who are very strongly in their consumption of carbon dioxid they have to pay extra so this is how we can balance it and. the climate crisis in a socially responsible way. austria is not without its leader after a no confidence vote for strike when chancellor civil suits to step down opposition parties joined forces to remove europe's youngest leader from office over a corruption scandal dominic king has the story from vienna. just over
5:13 am
a week ago court said a stable coalition astri's far right. now his chancellorship is over after only 17 months in office and his country has government. sacked this was the scandal that engulfed his family partners and eventually ended the coalition the secret video emerged of the freedom party's leaders filmed in 2017 apparently advising russians how their country could increase its influence over austrian politics the controversy led coats to force the party's cabinet ministers from office last week now they have returned the compliment. you have begun to see if you made the entire freedom party responsible for the wrong actions of 2 people who took the appropriate measures as we agreed that's what he did he tried to take advantage of a difficult situation of a government partner he tried to enlarge his own power base for the social democrats it was about denouncing what they call the unconstitutionality of course
5:14 am
his actions and he said shallows that this is a shameless unrestrained and irresponsible power grab this is what we are witnessing at the power in our country is based on people and not you it was a stark contrast from sunday's scene when sebastian cortes led his party to its best european election result in 20 years which makes the opposition decision to force an early election seemed electorally questionable the chamber is now empty the politicians who voted the government out of left perhaps gone to think about planning their election campaign the one irony of this results is that the man who's been forced from office might well soon be back on those same government benches if the opinion polls are anything to go by something mr cortes knows only too well as he told his supporters soon after losing the confidence of parliament been wiped out by the me today. a parliament decided but at the end of the day in
5:15 am
september in this democracy the people will decide and i'm looking forward to it thank you for your support clearly he thinks he can ride that support back to the chancellorship dominic. lots more still to come on the new siren quitting beers in iraq i saw is seeking to exploit any instability arising out of tensions between the u.s. and iran. the court case in oklahoma the kid have major implications for america's opioid crisis. and the case of clay is off and running and paris peter has the action on the french open. fighting has intensified around the libyan capital missiles loyal to the un recognized government battles with forces led by the warlord holly for half there.
5:16 am
or the government is trying to push off those forces back from the airport ruled south of tripoli after launched an offensive in early april to take the capital from forces loyal to prime minister fires. well the fighting has killed more than a 500 people and forced tens of thousands from their homes. when al-jazeera investigation has tracked several military aircraft and spy planes that seem to be supporting have just forces to military cargo planes appear to have switched off their tracking devices to conceal their movements to and from eastern libya the country is currently under an arms embargo imposed by the united nations. well if i have to control as much of libya south and east and leads the self described libyan national army he's supported by saudi arabia egypt and the united arab emirates last week the u.n.
5:17 am
special representative for libya 1st and salami called for immediate action to cut off the flow of arms saying many countries are sending weapons to libya's warring parties. or pro have to web sites have posted full video footage of jordanian built armored cars they said were supplies it's afters forces and said a confidential report to the security council earlier this month you an expert said missiles fired at the tripoli forces in april could points to the involvement of a 3rd party possibly the u. 8 well libya is a un recognized governments has also accused francis all the backing hafter the warlords has attended talks in paris hosted by french president emmanuel mack home let's get more on this william lawrence joins us now live from washington d.c. he served at the u.s. embassy in tripoli and is currently a professor of political science and international affairs at george washington
5:18 am
university thank you so much for joining us on al-jazeera 1st of all there is supposed to be a u.n. arms and bargo but that it doesn't appear that it's being respected by by either party really. that's true both sides are violating the weapons in bargo and there are many countries supplying weapons to both sides but the primary. country for furnishing arms to have to are in the east is u.a.e. and the primary country supporting the defense of tripoli in the west is turkey we are quite sure that the emirates have built an air base for drones in the south. and these drones have been used on at least 7 occasions to hit civilian targets in tripoli as well as many other occasions to hit military targets now the latest reports the jazeera did are remarkable they raise more questions than they answer of course but we see planes flying from jordan from israel from
5:19 am
a number of other countries that are probably related to not only the provision of armored vehicles but also drone technology and and other types of weapons all of which are banned by the u.n. so both sides are sort of pots calling the kettle black and naming the other side there are some theories that the reason why u.a.e. supported have to are to attack on 8 april 4th was because of the delay turkish arms shipment so the these arms shipments are having major impact on the conflict in libya at what impacts that they have because i have to has been trying to say tripoli for weeks now is a really hot success what impact these latest developments have. well one of the other reasons that have to attract tripoli is that there was infighting among militias in tripoli and he thought he could take advantage of that and get some of them to swing to his side but the effect of his. surprise attack
5:20 am
was to unify almost all of the militias in tripoli against him because for them he represents a sort of khadafi or sisi like authoritarian leader which is antithetical to their revolutionary goals it took have to are 3 years to conquer just a few neighborhoods in benghazi and so his military prowess and his. military ak human have not been proven in this fight he did sweep through the south in january with some speed and ability but didn't. have much opposition for example he took the town of that he enters the attach tripoli without a shot fired and so it's mostly just sort of driving armored vehicles around libya and not finding much opposition until he got to tripoli right now all indications are that this standoff in tripoli could last months or even years because of the
5:21 am
parity between the 2 sides and that's why the the outside powers are rushing arms in to try to keep that parity because they don't want either side to lose we mentioned there some of the outside powers you talk of turkey the u.a.e. . supports in various sites but but also some european countries france for example seems to have a dog in this fight why why are they trying to undermine the un recognized governments. france has been playing a double game perhaps the most problematic of the various double games being played by international powers and that's largely because they back have 2 hours after it's against extremist forces in the east and the new revelation in the disease to report is that french intelligence flights may have supported even have tars attack on tripoli we were all very surprised to have to was able to move about 600
5:22 am
kilometers north and no one noticed and certainly with the americans in the french and all of their satellite technology they should have been able to warn the u.n. government and they didn't we also had 2 groups of mysterious french armed agents show up at the tunisian border in the early weeks of this latest conflict with poor explanations about why they were there i think what is going on based on everything i've seen is that france was supporting have to are quite robustly and had a bit of buyer's remorse lately because they were not fully in support of this attack on tripoli even though they played a role as he was moving across the country and now my call has invited both siraj and. have to are to paris for recent meetings and made no headway on getting a cease fire and so france is double game it's begun to backfire and now they're going to have to kind i think reassess and figure out whether they want to continue to back the u.n. peace process and the u.n. government or fully back after the way saudi arabian u.a.e.
5:23 am
in egypt are doing well in lawrence fascinating to get your thoughts thanks very much indeed for going lawrence joining us there live from washington d.c. . now at least 18 people have been killed sight of it in a bombardment by syrian government forces the shelling happens in the town of very her and surrounding villages and left a number of people trapped under the rubble rebel groups have been holding talks in an effort to see quarter nate their response syrian government forces launched a new offensive on last month the country's last major rebel stronghold a cease fire deal brokered by russia and turkey has been repeatedly violated in recent weeks. the israeli military says its attacks are syrian anti-aircraft battery that fires on one of its warplanes the incidents happened close to the abandons border city of nature the fists of the israeli occupied golan heights there are reports of injuries and the destruction of

5:26 am
these riots they these fights they happen in the in the. security area of the prisons we typically the guards are not them or in and out of referral busy area and when these fights break out in some conflict there is these prisons obviously severely understaffed because brazil's prisons are 200 percent of the full so when this fight breaks out. the prison officials that are on the ground on control what is going on they know that so they rather don't go and they wait and hold the fight is over until things calm down and then maybe they send in negotiators or they call in reinforcements which sometimes takes a while to arrive. colombia and venezuela and peru rather have called on the international community to commit more raids to help with the influx of migrants

5:30 am
examining the headlines a collapsed economy believes that many people are struggling to survive setting the discussions people have looked away i don't think you can look away any longer sharing personal stories with a global audience explore an abundance of world class programming designed to inform the media's motivate and inspire. the world is watching on al-jazeera. this is al-jazeera a quick reminder of the top stories for you this hour young children are among the victims of

5:32 am
maker the your company would be worth $40000000000.00 and combined forces in the race to make electric autonomy vehicles rose merger with japanese carmaker nissen has faced challenges following the arrest of former boss carlos golden on financial misconduct charges. well david carly is and also most of industry analysts and joins us live from ann arbor in the u.s. state of michigan 1st of all here it stands to gain from a merger of this size. well both companies stand to gain f.c.a. has been looking for an alliance partner or a merger partner for a couple of years now before sergio marciano who is their c.e.o. died last year he was very open looking for merger partners proposed a merger with general motors for example renault now because of their
5:33 am
difficulty now with nissan that they have this global alliance with nissan that is on somewhat shaky ground now as you mentioned because the c.e.o. of both companies and the architect of that alliance carlos gone is in is in a jail in japan awaiting trial. and the 2 companies are negotiating kind of a new arrangement under the alliance so renault in a way this f.c.a. offer is very good for them because it will give them leverage to get what they want possibly out of nissan but they also stand to gain some some real benefits from from teaming up with f.c. i think well if if it looks so good on paper i do you think it says quite an easy mark it's a complete specially given the size. no. i mean they can
5:34 am
cut the deal if if if for a nose board wants to do the merger with f.c.a. there won't be any he difficulty in achieving the merger the difficulty will become in making it work because as we have seen there's really been no automotive merger that has worked very well for ca as you know. with the possible exception of f.c.a. itself before f c 8 before fia took over chrysler you know chrysler had spent years in this unsuccessful marriage with with german automaker dime lower ford tried to manage acquire and manage jaguar land rover involved in. you know an aston martin and that didn't work b.m.w. tried to acquire rover and run that didn't work putting together the operations of
5:35 am
2 auto companies in a merger situation where both sides feel that they're equal is terribly difficult because of the big personalities because of the culture different cultural differences see the fia at the acquisition of chrysler by fia it is actually a different story because had a very powerful magnetic personality you brilliant c.e.o. in sergio marchione who is who is able to commit and they they really rescued chrysler says it was a different situation. and with renault and nissan they've had an alliance of over the last 20 years that has been reasonably successful it hasn't in my opinion been. you know a tremendous success of 2 companies realizing synergies and
5:36 am
complimentary things they've had a lot of trouble. chief among them of the french culture of renault and the japanese culture of nissan not really getting along very well while the soviet interesting. if it plays a bit for i thank you very much indeed david kiley there also most of the sea and i was joining us from michigan. now in sudan divisions between opposition groups can say yes' and challenge the transition from military to civilian rule one group rejected calls from other process leaders to organize a general strike on cheese day and weapons say imran khan has more from khartoum. the vice chairman of the transitional military council has been speaking he's issued a very strong statement at a dinner for fellow officers he said the army has no popular support than any other organization in sudan well the people who would disagree with the speaker over that
5:37 am
he's reaching the word made a letter it means civil civil they still demanding a civilian government now the sudanese professionals association the people of cold for their trainer will strike tomorrow also speak english quite a press conference as you can hear every ticket johnson was a very friendly and civilian civilian now they've issued a strong statement as i've said and what they've said is this you've gone with notes he rolled the barrel of a gun let's take a listen to what i had to say a bundle is so what are the sole guarantor of the revolution are the sudanese people and the law and order in what we agree upon as a constitutional declaration or otherwise this is the guarantor of the revolution not a military rifle has the law i mean. right now obviously people are very excited about the general strike it looks like it will hold but will say over the next couple of
5:38 am
days. now there are worries in back done that the growing tension between the u.s. and iran can have dangerous implications for iraq's stability as the fight against eisel continues on the ground is fear the group is just waiting for any weakness in the incident national coalition child stratford explains from baghdad. iraqi security forces. sees an armed groups backed by iran known as the popular mobilization forces or p.m.s. hunt eisel sleeper cells in northern iraq. the u.s. calls the p.m.s. iran's proxy militia they were set up after a decree by iraq's top shia cleric calling on iraqis to fight i saw when the iraqi military. offensive on the city of mosul in 2014 tens of thousands of p.m.s. fighters were formally integrated into iraq security forces 2 years later. military
5:39 am
analysts say they were vital in the battle against eisel for a fight the iraqi prime minister said was won in 2017 but some p.m.s. factions have warned they would support iran if there was a military escalation between the us and iran potentially jeopardizing the fight against eisel. any conflict would weaken iraq's security and defense establishment including the p.m.s. because some of these armed groups would divert their focus from fighting i sell to siding with iran i still would be given a huge opportunity to penetrate the areas they once occupied as we have seen sleeper cells trying to do in recent days. this video shows iraqi military air strikes on eisel targets in the hungry mountains in ceylon who didn't province army commanders say sleeper cells of i saw fighters have been trying to recruit in the area analysts say i saw what exploited any deterioration in iraq's stability
5:40 am
especially if there was a military escalation between the us and iran they have been increasing attacks by eisel in the west in the north of the country in recent months car bombs killed 5 civilians and 3 members of the iraqi security forces in 2 separate attacks in recent days. the hunt for eisel sleeper cells goes on across remote areas of iraq. they rock a security forces continue their military operations across the vast desert. this includes search and destroy missions of any ice in the remenant and sleeper cells that have recently attacked remote villages and towns. as u.s. pressure on iran increased earlier this month u.s. secretary of state mike pompei warned the iraqi government about what he said was intelligence showing increased specific threats against u.s. interests in iraq the iraqi government denying there were any threats from the p.m.s. days later
5:41 am
a rocket was fired into the green zone in baghdad which is home to the u.s. and other embassies no one claimed responsibility a sign that increased tension between the u.s. and iran has dangerous implications for the stability of iraq and could ultimately weaken international coalition efforts to fight eisel which is killed thousands of people in attacks in this region and beyond. that al-jazeera fact that. 4 years of war in yemen has forced millions of people living there to the brink of famine and their crisis is becoming increasingly desperate. in the reports. this yemeni mother has 10 children to feed and this is where they live in a makeshift camp for internally displaced people in the room 8 had to provence in northern yemen all i guess i look back we're living under a tree and we don't have anything and there are snakes which we're scared of yesterday we had to kill one that got too close i struggle for my children i back
