7:35 pm
a major victory in parliamentary elections. got us prime minister is expected to attend a summit in saudi arabia the 1st high level meeting since a blockade against his nation the saudis are holding a series of meetings to discuss regional challenges namely the whys and tension with iran delegates from all the 15 asia pacific countries are in fact called for. a u.n. meeting on statelessness are expected to pledge action for the millions of people around the world who are being denied a nationality. final preparations are underway in the democratic republic of congo to receive the body of the former opposition leader etienne just a katie he died 2 years ago in belgium at the age of $84.00 after a long illness political crisis of the sea led to the delay of his funeral because of fears that it would spark opposition protests crowds are expected to gather at the national stadium in kinshasa later on thursday well m.t.n. just to katie was a prominent critic of the former leader
7:36 pm
a boot who says he said go and co-founded the union for democracy and social progress party in 1982 he became an opponent to laurent kabila who was assassinated in 2001 and his son joseph kabila who govern the country for 18 years almost 2 years after his katy's death his son felix was sworn in as president although december's elections were marred by claims of fraud it was considered the 1st peaceful transfer of power in the democratic republic of congo in 60 is let's speak to ben shephard who's a consulting fellow for the africa program at chatham house he joins us now by of from london so a peaceful transfer of power ben but we still don't know a lot about how that power is going to be used doing. well that's exactly it the return of the body of a contrast that comes at a moment where the balance of power between his son felix just kerry and the coalition of the outgoing president joseph kabila is not yet clear. prime minister
7:37 pm
was nominated last week he is widely regarded as something of a placeholder a compromise candidate and the allocation of key ministries i think will go a long way to showing us who holds the whip hand just how significant a figure in congolese politics was at the end just a katie. he was a monumental figure he use a huge part of congress politics for 4 decades he was a leading figure in the fight for democracy under move outta in the in the eighty's i spent a long time in prison and again in the transition following before the the fall of mbutu and in the ninety's. he decided to boycott elections following congress war in 2006 did fight elections in 2011 which he lost in widely and a disputed circumstances so his legacy was somewhat tarnished in the last 2 years but the fact that 5 african heads of state have travel to contrast
7:38 pm
that to attend the ceremonies underlines quite how a monumental figure he was not just in congo but across the continent could the return though of his body exacerbate these continuing political tensions in the country i mean that there are still those in the democratic republic of congo who believe that the opposition leader martin failed who was the true winner of the election. well indeed and that is reflected by the figures collected by the catholic church and others that seem to show that matter for you to won the election by a substantial margin nonetheless the situation that we're in is there has been a peaceful handover of power at the top of congress' politics which is an unprecedented step forward had inches cody's body being returned prior to elections it would certainly find a flashpoint now it's much harder to read there is an irony that his son felix just caddy is currently in a coalition of sorts with the platform of just camilla the i.c.c.
7:39 pm
the man who spent the last years his life fighting against that irony will be undoubtedly recognized by the congolese and the king more in particular they have a very very well developed sense of political irony so how this moment is received by the street is very hard to read we'll have to see the numbers of people that come out to the start and on the streets. the government has decided today it's going to be a paid national holiday which suggests that they would rather people came out on his memory rather than being too concerned about the possibility of trouble at least in the immediate sense ben really gets too many thanks indeed for being with us ben sheppard from chatham house at least 20 people have been killed in syrian government air raids in libya and aleppo 8 of those killed were in western aleppo well as strikes targeted a popular market civil defense teams are still searching for victims in several towns that were hit by government strikes one of based 43 people have been killed in 2 days upon bartman by russian backed government forces in syria they're

7:41 pm
proportional in relationship to civilian casualties and the fight against terror is what we need to see is the fight against terrorism is continuing it needs to be proportional to the challenge so it's illegal what's been happening. thank you. the russian delegation strongly denied its forces and those of the syrian government were breaching international law despite the statements of the u.n. humanitarian office that medical facilities were being repeatedly targeted in it lead why are you bombing hospitals though we went to medical facilities will not bomb hospitals the syrian army believing isn't and please be very much of course us and double chip all the source of information of it you called our source information for us our church. double chip all the information of it your quart or both of these so-called bombardments including from the u.n.
7:42 pm
in the world in from your air the u.s. special envoy for syria the jim jeffords said the situation in the ad lib was horrific he called for an immediate cease fire but for now there's no indication that the russians or the syrian government are prepared to comply with that james ouches era at the united nations thousands of people have march through argentina's capital to protest against austerity measures on the president richard mockery a nationwide strike has shut down key grain ports and grounded flights to raise a bow reports for us. another national strike against the government of modi so mark it's the 5th one since he took office back in 2015 schools and banks are closed the public's transport are down in the city and mostly around the country which you can see right behind me are some social movements here that are giving away free food in this demonstration in the center of the capital. people
7:43 pm
here say that the reason why they're calling for a strike is the rising unemployment and poverty in the country i don't know who they were for they were they don't know if the austerity measures are affecting the argentine population undaunted by the international monetary fund last year so in these last 15 percent of value this year the saying. argentina is facing an economic crisis that has had a severe effect on living standards in the country if they should in 2018 reached almost 50 percent and the rate has continued to rise in 2019 but wages are not keeping up with the pace yes in the south the situation is a disaster i have a soup kitchen and we're in a series and the amount of people coming continues to grow we don't have enough the government says that this strike hurts the country's economy even more and that

7:45 pm
one it's an ideological attack using finance it's. these students are preparing for a long fight so i shouted over the valley i personally think that this government won't back off but we won't give up it won't just be one demonstration this is not just affecting the students but the whole society. they started saying that universities don't do research on our places of disorder that represent only expense for the government parts not true. and the long term effects someone could be drastic. me a society without knowledge has to go into reverse when you destroy knowledge you lose independence and start depending on others. already strained public education buildings they say will fall into further disrepair many here see this is more than just a cup to the public education budget they see it as part of an ideology designed to
7:46 pm
undermine free and independent thinking and attack on those who think differently to them. the 1st protests when the cuts were announced earlier this month attracted over a 1000000 demonstrators in cities across brazil. president said the public colleges and universities which constitute about one quarter of brazil's education system a whole beds of leftwing indoctrination he urged students to report their teachers seen with the switch from chemistry to study fashion one of the subjects he believes the government is targeting. my research feel. fashion and sociology my goal is to study society and the influence of fashion on it however i don't know what will happen now without a grant i can't focus on my studies and my future career that will no longer exist . well both sides emphasized the importance of education many feel that the very heart and soul of brazilian society lies at the center of this conflict.

7:48 pm
across latin america to get jobs done a huge corruption scandal it's all presidents it's all ministers get canned in mexico it led to really absolutely nothing happening under the previous president and make it pena nieto so really there's a point to prove here for president under his money well lopez obrador and to do that he's gone after a 1000000 open. the x. head of the state oil company there's been a lot of noise around him to do with the auto brake case and things connected to it for quite some time 3 he's also going after the director over his ministration public prosecutors have gone after the director of one of mexico's major steelmaking firms so this is just the start really all of this case charges have been pressed now they were born in italy grew up there and speak

the language for 2 boys who were told that they would get nationality after saving one. hijacked bus full of children are still waiting for the government to keep its promise their case is fueling calls for italy's citizenship law to be changed from . reports. has been called a hero him and his classmate help save the lives of 51 students when their school bus was hijacked in march the eluded the police resulting in a dramatic rescue of their hijacked bus. the bus driver had threatened to burn all the children on board before setting fire to the vehicle he was protesting against migrant deaths in the mediterranean i then hid his phone from the hijacker and called his mom for help work 1st particularly frank everyone he knows has hailed him for his courage but despite being born in italy he's not an italian citizen that's because adam's parents moved to italy from morocco under italian law a child born to foreigners does not have the automatic right to citizenship and
7:50 pm
must wait until they're 18 years old to apply for it but after adam's actions on the bus it leaves government promise to grant him sort of than ship. i think that someone was born here it's fair that he has a telly in citizenship it's unfair if he hasn't in the beginning they told us they would give us citizenship but it's been 2 months now we still don't have any news. the government's decision to grant him and his french citizenship has sparked a debate many are asking should people risk their lives to get citizenship others are calling for immediate side of the ship for all children born in italy. if you neary is an immigration lawyer and he wants the government to change what he calls an archaic system. on the web the 1902 law copies the 911 law of course that's not compatible with today we need to integrate foreign citizens starting with minors children who arrived or were born here. elizabeth was
