breached a stockpile limits agreed say in 2015 but they're urging tehran not see reduces corporation with the deal the islamic republic the us violated international treaty when it pulled tight and other parties should have kept their site off the deal same a strategy has more now from to her own i get annoyed with just days to go before iran is expected to take another step in its plan to reduce cooperation with a 2050 nuclear deal president hassan rouhani had an angry rebuke for the united states in mantell yet saw asked over the past one year it is then was started to light the fire well extinguish it if you say it is dangerous to play with fire why did you start it. he was responding to comments by president. of the international atomic energy agency or the i.a.e.a. on monday confirmed iran had breached an agreed stockpile limit for enriched uranium. and i think playing with. the u.s.
11:07 pm
pulled out of the deal last year imposing ever widening economic sanctions including stopping iran from exporting excess nuclear material another example iran says that illustrates the u.s. is to blame for how fragile the 25th or joint comprehensive plan of action has become caught in the middle attempts by europe to salvage the. europe's lack of stronger public condemnation of american sanctions as a weakness of the instrument in support of trade exchanges or. to mitigate u.s. sanctions essentially an oil for good scheme iran's president says is tokenism. it could be an acceptable action. now it's like a bank without money. people come to this. this is a critical time for the nuclear deal if nothing changes by sunday july 7th iran
11:08 pm
says it will start enriching uranium at higher purity levels and will expand the scope of nuclear activity stopped with the signing of the deal. the best thing for america to do is return from their mistake. but runs out of patience world leaders are running out of time. rolling back on the deal is meant to be a way for iran to take back some autonomy with regards to its nuclear program something it gave up for economic relief that iranians say they have yet to fully experience it's also meant to call into question the commitment of the remaining signatories to the. worry that this diplomatic. might be the thing. rubble gandhi has resigned as the leader of india's main opposition party the indian national congress the 41 year old letters party's campaign chair in this
11:09 pm
year's general election faced a major to feet against the ruling b j p it was busying see become the 4th member of his family to be india's prime minister he says sees responsible for his party's poor electoral performance and has left it to others to nominates the next president of india's oldest party. there is a lecture on the faculty over history at the university of cambridge she says the resignation has significance but doesn't necessarily mean the end of the guns a legacy in indian politics. but it is a catch 22 for the indian national congress it is highly identified by the narrow gandhi family and yet most people most indian in the indian electorate has reacted badly to the dynastic nature of leadership in it so i think now the party faces a crisis as in terms of who to make responsible to make the leap in the face of leadership in this party i don't think that mr gandhi or his sister or even his
11:10 pm
mother a leaving the political scene but i think what they're trying to do is to actually sort of come up with a sort of 2nd tour of leadership for 4 and this shows that actually. gandhi himself wants to take on the fight in terms of ideology that is incredibly clear from his statement that this is the resignation letter was not simply about the hands out but was actually saying well india needs to be careful it is entering a dangerous era where institutions are being taken over by so-called authoritarian government and the congress needs to fight that system so i think in a way he's saying well i think he's going to be the as it were a moral or an ideological force but he's not going to leave the day to day running of the party to someone else. citron opposition says it's ready to resume negotiations with the transitional military council if conditions are met the opposition wants an independent investigation into the killing of protesters the

11:12 pm
one way of pressuring the saudis she says is depriving them of hosting the next g. 20 summit in riyadh in 2020 political accountability for mr khashoggi will mean that it doesn't happen. elsewhere or something is being done to ensure that the police to call as cease down in the u.s. and in other countries does not become complicit and she's calling for a restriction on saudi access to surveillance technology there should be a moratorium on the sale of surveillance technology to saudi arabia because time and time again that country as demonstrated that he can meet cannot be trusted but us president donald trump is the key to making effective moves on the saudis who have rejected reports and maintain the cause shock g.'s killing was a rogue operation by officials the u.s.

11:14 pm
vandalism went too far this is not what i expect while i expect this to not go too far just. peaceful many protesters don't want to show their faces for fear of arrest but this man was one of those who broke into alleged hong kong's parliament on monday night he justifies the action we're going to hurt and the police we just want to carry through the day and find cover as well and to pay our message to the world and other older protester thinks that by not intervening earlier police deliberately allowed violence knowing it would reflect badly on the protesters even so he to feel to ballance against property was justified high on the teaching are you coming my generation failed to do enough for the last 20 years i've got children i fear for them there was violence it was against property not people we need to keep the protests of. these protests began over an extradition
11:15 pm
bill that would have sent suspects to mainland china for trial they've now turned into a cold sweat greater freedoms part of the battle is about public opinion and most people in hong kong did not take part in monday's protests instead of watching them on t.v. if they felt the violence went too far that could hurt the protest discourse on that opinions a mixed with broadly splits between older and younger people in an upmarket tea shop to support the protesters action for me i think it's reasonable to deny her any people or they didn't. rob anyone. they don't burn a car you don't read to shop but elsewhere there's irritation of the violence like a mole or leaking that it's not good it was wrong they broke all the government stuff citizens should do this july the 1st with the climax of months of protests there aren't any more planned but to protest to say they're not over either andrew thomas al-jazeera hong kong. now and says concerned about the bracks and plans
11:16 pm
being picked forward by the 2 contenders to be britain's next prime minister senior irish politicians say they don't know why the country can maintain an open border if the u.k. leaves the e.u. well i said deal lawrence lee reports from the european parliament's in strasbourg . they've been choosing their new president at the european parliament very soon breaks its will go right back to the top of the agenda one of either boris johnson or jeremy hunt's will become the u.k.'s new prime minister and both men say they're prepared to take the u.k. out of the european union by the end of october without a deal as it stands the european position remains that everything will be done to protect our islands from being destabilized in that event we are very firm supporting the fact that we want to see the horses avoid order and we want to respect the safety of those something you are seeing the mark. but how
11:17 pm
hunts and johnson both suggest they would get around the issue of customs checks at the irish border by simply waving goods through towards the u.k. but things like food travelling into the e.u. the other way would have to be checked to ensure all meets european standards there's only so much. and that's put in an impossible position it cannot carry out those checks without customs posts that means a closed border potentially instituted by ireland and in breach of the peace process it's a sworn not to destabilize. you're going to be left with a chaotic situation because you're going to have a border with children crossing it's we can't be mad and we're night and secondly part of the consequences of the peace process plus the consequences trade is for instance the early part of what went on 6 or 7 times across the border before the export market and won't happen for instance so the consequences are an awful. the
11:18 pm
realisation of this is dawning here with several european countries now asking ireland how it plans to square the circle there is no answer there is a genuine and growing concern both here and in brussels of the language being used by both boris johnson and jeremy hunt is having the effects of forcing oland into a corner the u.k. can say all it wants about having a no deal breck's it and keeping the irish border open but that is not a luxury available to all and i think it takes a position taken by both hunt and johnson is echoed by the brics it party which maintains a simple insistence that everything will be ok it is now setting the agenda for the ruling conservative party nobody wants a bold and therefore when i try to the whole thing was a hoax just to get in the white face of the pressure that. lets the u.k. parliament stops them the position taken by either hunch or johnson puts the european union's back against the wall and will soon find out if it still has the
11:19 pm
unswerving support all the. long sleeve al-jazeera in strasbourg. says al jazeera and these are the top stories france has condemned the airstrike on a detention center in the capital tripoli at least 44 people were killed 130 others have been injured the un recognized government has blamed the strike on forces loyal to the warlord however half the. african union has also condemned the air strike in libya is calling for an independent investigation and an immediate cease fire in tripoli the u.n. mission in libya and it sent boyko the strike a cowardly act which critter might see a war crime. rahul gandhi has resigned as the leader of india's main opposition party the indian national congress a 49 year old led his party's campaign during

this year's general election but faced a major defeat against the building b j p candy says he is responsible for his party's poor electoral performance and has left it to others to nominate the next president of india's oldest party sudan's opposition says it's ready to resume negotiations with the transitional military council if conditions are met the opposition wants an independent investigation into the killing of protesters the release of political prisoners and the restoration of the incidents fals mediation efforts led by the o.p.'s prime minister with backing from the african union the united nations special investigator looking into the murder of jamal khashoggi wants world powers to reconsider hold in the next g. 20 summit in saudi arabia agnes kelly modernizer findings last month telling al-jazeera she wants the u.n. to investigate further she was unable to determine who authorized the killing but did find credible evidence points in crown prince mohammed bin salma. those are
11:21 pm
the headlines the news continues here on al-jazeera after the stream stay with us. there are. problems and besides the instability is corruption we listen. are pushing the united states and president trump into conflict we meet with global newsmakers and talk about the stories that matter just 0. 2 men remaining in the race to be both the leader of a conservative party and prime minister but with only a tiny fraction of the public gets enough vote what impact will the outcome have on an already divided country i for me ok so just. try to get more into the state.
11:22 pm
an estimated 160000 conservative party members will choose between bush johnson and jamie how to succeed theresa may as party leader but because a general election isn't june the when i want also get to 10 downing street for melinda mad johnson is the favorite to win the leadership ballot when it's announced in 3 weeks time meanwhile hunt is highlighting his record as both foreign and health secretary both candidates happy appealing to party members in the run up to the postal ballot we need to get bricks done to someone who can play in the budget. to believe. someone who is meditated deeply on the opportunities of brecht's it could bring our country i am the right man when i talk to people running their own businesses to farmers to shopkeepers to people on the high street who are worried about the situation that
11:23 pm
we're in they don't want to show them and they don't want to be entertained they want a prime minister who is going to lead us right. for more on this we're joined from strasburg by al-jazeera correspondent. he's reported widely on the leadership race as well as breaks it and u.k. politics tom holland is a journalist and commentator in many works as a reporter for the grito forks conservative website he joins us from london and daniel rally is a member of parliament representing the scottish council area with no fuel for the opposition labor party she joins us from london hello everybody the reason we are doing this show is because we are scout audience regularly what story is making news where you live and this is the comment that we got about a week ago the conservative leadership race between boris johnson and jeremy hunt and the lies that they are telling to the u.k. public. and on no questions properly spewing out lies then we have
11:24 pm
jeremy who thinks the e.u. will work with in better topic. they do a good job of summing up the conservative leadership race. i think of quite a partisan way of looking at said really what we have in this race is someone who has for many people been the face of breck's it for many years boris johnson who helped lead that vote need campaign all the way back in 2060 who stood on the base stages around the country and dissuaded the country to vote to leave the e.u. against jeremy hunt who is someone who is considered to be much more of a diplomat's much more of a sort of straight laced kind of person not her as he said in the trip not to show him but someone who did vote remains so you have this sort of more technocratic approach up against this more impassioned approach and by the way that all the polls are looking right now it looks like people are going to pump for the passion that drives the enthusiasm morgan that sort of laid back technocratic execute and
11:25 pm
i'm just not all that damn hans that was a fine 2nd for the tammy one night to win how would you sum it up nonsense or as a candidate who has less recognition. then by stance not special no nothing i think tom's very much right in saying that you know hunt hunt is viewed as a technocrat he wasn't a very popular health secretary certainly an inside the health service and boris johnson will boris's is just that in the u.k. does does have people call the ready brek clothes you know he has this sort of christmas i would i would say it's almost point or as having let the police campaign both of them so citrus recent days proximity ill when what when when it was voted on in the commons but you know did they think that really ultimately they both having told them that. and this is the most important thing is that they're
11:26 pm
trying to appeal to a conservative party membership that is absolutely insistent that the u.k. has to leave in the 31st of october. i think primarily because if the u.k. doesn't leave the 31st of october then probably the u.k. will never leave us and as well as that that you could as and leave then then that would be a general election sooner rather than later and they're terrified of either losing enormous support of the brics party or losing the entire election to jeremy corbin and both of these candidates are saying openly that if they don't leave those things will happen so it's as much as anything else it seems to me that the in its for the delivery of brics it is as much a peep in the sense of what it's a gather as it is to do with national interests and that's not a partisanship mulloy it's what they say who sells that now you're a young neighbor and i want to put this to this comes and pfizer mahmoud says in the black and minority ethnic office the london young and slacks this point about
11:27 pm
this concept of the surprise have a. story to collection is the hierarchy includes millions of people having senator of our country but there is a consequence people heroes life and death situations because mr zinni returns this election really goes 1st don't think the bigger he ramadans the grounds it's nigh on the to 800 number it is called black people pickaninnies and jeremy hunt has done more than anyone to dismantle our national health service. danielle is kind of i mean. i think she she phrased well as simply and you know we've got someone who has and hunt someone who books the n.h.s. and then we've gone out and bought a someone who wants to sell off to trump and so you know that the can't be trusted and we heard from young women there how much people feel let down by both of these contenders so it is such a false choice and they're both absolutely complicit and if they're to see measures
11:28 pm
which is so harmful in communities like mine and with a little bit and but across the u.k. and they you know they've been complicit in that so no wonder people all across the u.k. feel like this is a false choice and i certainly wouldn't be excited by either of them and it was interesting there that generated the huns and the clip that you showed with the reasons homes are speaking up for businesses because when he was when it was put to him some small businesses may have to close if there was a new deal bricks that he said that would be a necessary sacrifice you know this is simply terrible why would anyone feel inspired by them or want either of them to be the next prime minister that's a question for tom tom. so i think there's the you you're quite right in terms of jerry hunt's pessimism he's someone who campaigned for main back in 2016 just today
11:29 pm
he was pointing to bank of england reports but a predicting doom and gloom but in reality those same studies those same reports 3 years ago predicted as a result of the vote that we in immediate recession that the job losses that the all of these horrible outcomes the country that he never materialized in reality what happened after the referendum is the highest jobs growth that we've had we now have more people in employment in this country than ever before we're growing faster than germany faster than trunks faster than it's really this country's doing going gangbusters really and also we've had an extra $394000000.00 pounds of meat invested in our n.h.s. that wouldn't have happened without the referendum and so what we've really seen is quite successful 3 years but a failure to deliver that actually results so what we're looking at you know if i may sidestep something that i think is really important and that and let me just show you this is headlines out of there have given history of sly's minorities for
11:30 pm
voice junction leadership so you can talk about economy you can talk about jobs but what about the atmosphere within the u.k. how minorities fill that they can operate in the u.k. i don't address that because while his law is the master of insults. i i totally to speak up boris is someone who comes from a rich diversity of ethnic heritage and said he's going to church family here and he's got family from turkey family from the last his great grandfather that he's recently that he's an. old you're asian and that's a wonderful thing but also he's someone that stood up for and defended minority communities year after year what are you know how to tell whether or not i'm going up for minorities when he called women here where the bar letterboxes was that he said yes you're limited very you know the context of that comment the context of that comment when it's he again hitting out against an e.u.
11:31 pm
country denmark that a liberal ban on the practice in many fronts and lots of european countries and boris is writing a column that defending the rights of muslim women to wear the burka he's had a consistently liberal position on all of these issues and he's stood up for the rights of minorities left right and center and yes sometimes he uses flowery language to do it but look it's actually beyond his words look at his deeds and me has been one of the most steadfast liberal defend not if not going to take a mile i know i think while i think i think boris johnson sometimes doesn't get his words in a straight line i think i think to tom's point i think the point is as i understood it he was making about women wearing what he calls you know the that the let's of course is is he was trying to say that they were made to wear it and they didn't have the right to wear what what what they wanted to and in that sense i think he
11:32 pm
was misrepresented because he was trying to put it forth as a liberal position even though it came out of his mouth as some something rude and i think i think this is one of the problems that boris johnson has and this is what you've seen during the early solar pulls out her trip from. so the house of commons he's had to have minders with him because he keeps trying to get involved in call the stations with people and shooting his male force and they're trying to drag him away because they're terrified is going to go. off message and then rip the reporter is going to pick it up. and it will destroy his campaign and so consequently he's ended up in this in this what frankly looks like a pretty poor campaign where he's run away from open debate insofar as he can because even if he's going to win which i think he probably will even though he's
11:33 pm
people of very frightened of him of him saying or doing the wrong thing because he can't control it's not even if what he wants to say might in his view be the right thing to say so was let's just move on a little bit and talk about the actual the mechanics of conservative leadership rice i was going to take a poor choice because we. are a team to go out into the streets and just kind of fill what people are thinking on the streets about this conservative leadership race or not able to take part and have a look i don't have a very good i think of course a rock and a hard place you've got boris. didn't say any more about boris and then you've got germany. but i think they've i think different things to the table i think boris is probably you know he can act like a club space probably quite smart i think people like him i think jeremy hunt is much smoother and more slick but actually maybe he's a safe pair friends say. kill the national health service.
11:34 pm
yes which or israel i wish i could work for but rather what i want to cry. what we've got. so we come back and have a look here because this is the conservative leadership race and lloyd myatt's points out unfortunately the general british public will not get to choose 160000 conservative party members will and 30 percent of them are over 65 which the majority would have voted to leave the e.u. other than that i did the state political promises from both have not played well so this idea of who gets to pick the next british prime minister tom joyner explain why so few people are able to do it. absolutely rerun a parliamentary democracy in this country not a presidential system and that means that the prime minister is someone who can command a majority in parliament and currently the person that can command a majority in parliament is the leader of the conservative party who have an
11:35 pm
agreement with the school of the for northern ireland and that means whoever the conservative party picks a lead that becomes the prime minister because they can command back majority and so that means that it's an internal matter from the conservative party who then 2022 at the latest probably if we're being honest with ourselves a lot earlier than back then it will go to the people in what's called a general election whereby members of parliament will be elected by the people of this country and members of parliament in effect will decide the prime minister. this is the same system that we've had for hundreds of years and it is always peculiar whenever there's a change will executive in the middle of a parliamentary term one side gets outraged the side isn't holding power at that time and the onions and in a way it's written around in terms of this manufactured outrage that's always going to noise when labor did it the labor party got annoyed when the tories there is
11:36 pm
a situation in the right i'm handling gordon brown became prime minister all our no i'm happy about that let's go ahead but doris is outrageous go to brown's prime minister with having a general election day and he's going to be he's at the same position at the end but the other thing i think is worth pointing out in response is but sweetie just put on screen as it is it's all very well saying that people don't get to choose i mean you know one of the points about. the opposite main opposition labor party is that what they what what's the what's the phrase they use describe that they're preserver occasion overtaking and seductive and but you have a great instruction to get a thank you you know i mean how how much actually have they got to run with these before. this little bit runs at a time because there is this gigantic hole between jeremy called in and these and his main union back a limitless ski and his closest advisers. and the rest of the party
11:37 pm
and the party membership which plainly wants either no brick support the very least a 2nd referendum and then when the party leadership is milch away from the accepting its mandate from it so membership and i do think and again this is the partisan view but i can't have the labor party at a much more definitive position than you know who some of the amendments in the columns that got lost by them over the last few months money actually been won and i don't think the country would be in this set of uncertainties of the moment that now the head i think it is a tick actually to blame labor for the state that ran with bricks that when you know we've had the conservatives translating over these failed talks we've had these red lanes not being able to get executed mandate in parliament it's 2 days i'm a bit made failing for not being able to secure that majority for her deal and not working with other parties effectively and you know it's
11:38 pm
a failing of everyone in her cabinet actually who has been engaged the public and off hasn't been speaking to people to get people of parliament votes parliament have all these children's chances to vote and they let you know if they think you know that i couldn't believe the medical department and noticing that they were doing loads of paper at hughes who couldn't vote couldn't vote a policy position when that was in told time and time again to vote for trees amaze the open if not acceptable to parliament because it's a bad deal and it's full of holes for parliament but accept it now and that is to resume a fork let's talk about who's actually going to be voting for the next prime minister this is lace and put to her she's a lifo tensions a conservative party member this is what she told us about her position having a sense. i don't think it's unfair say that there's probably never been a more controversial time to identify yourself as a young conservative than there is right now especially with jeremy corbyn in the
11:39 pm
labor party promising say much to young people understand we'll see why someone might question why i choose to identify myself as a young conservative whichever candidate my party's to be our next prime minister or i can have as if they strive to fulfill the democratic mandate to leave the european union and they're off to continue to build on the conservative plan to build more jobs increase our economy and security put an end to a sarah t. and continue to build a stronger fairer and more prosperous britain i'm just one about the demographic that the voters who will be voting for the next prime minister of the u.k. who do they represent who are they tom as far as you understand well the average age of the conservative party member is $57.00 but a little bit older than the average age of the labor party member which is $53.00 but not an extraordinary amount. in general people who join political parties in the united kingdom parties tend to be in that sort of mid fifty's age range so they
11:40 pm
will be representing something that's slightly different from the rest of the country but in some ways that's a good thing because it means that when a general election you get a choice you get labor party members choosing the labor party leader you get you conservative party members choosing the conservative party leader and then you get an actual battle of ideas if everyone chose the leader for every party you just end up with some sort of centrist fighting some so be centrist or let it be nothing to discuss well at that point there that's really important is yes that you have conservative memberships in the conservative leader you have labor members choosing the labor leader and then you have that battle of ideas threat general election which we have to have. let me just go back to. eunice who suggested this program in the 1st place and the reason he suggested it was was he was not impressed by what was happening in the u.k. right now the conservative leadership race this is what he has to say and what
11:41 pm
we're going to be mentioning the baby was his health once or johnson government would be disastrous for this country because their hard line breaks it is the u.k. now is the remaining now the latest hugo of poll showed that 25 percent of the general population wants a no deal but 43 percent want to try cortical 5th day and johnson and hunt won't listen or aren't listening to listen to the public now. so now i'm just wondering when they're done by the struggles of our business dr i'm not talking about how much of time of them sucked into breakfast and what is happening with practice and what is not what about the rest of the u.k. part of what's happened with all the other options that perhaps other think there's not that i think there's nothing to do that they can even have a queen speech that they think they can do anything because it is just sucked all the life out a lot of everything so that they they can't legislate for anything at all. and it's
11:42 pm
it is totally banned which out of the thing is to just just to combat what's on the side of the you know the conflict at the conservative party membership is is pretty old and white and almost entirely english there was a poll in the times of the day the sense of them what would you what what's going to take a few to deliver bricks and there was a vote an overwhelming majority for allowing scotland to go independent and northern ireland to go independent insensitivity bricks it you know and this is the conservative in the union this party of the u.k. so you know they think they are so actually determined and so the point that you're . guests pay their. the you know they do not represent the country they think they really genuinely those you know in terms of their demographic or their belief system it is true that every single poll assesses about between 25 and 28 percent of the population want ready the deal brooks's and spend
11:43 pm
you know there are some who don't know and some want a softer brick sets and but more than that but not a majority who think that all ready things in such a disaster there is that they should abandon the project and so the country is basically more or less a 3 way split but you know if if it is about the delivery of democracy i think it's quite difficult to make the case anymore that no deal bracks it is the democratic mandate a just don't think you can say that. anymore big partly because when the referent of it in 2016 it was the do you want to leave or stay in the european union was put in as a binary choice when they're actually for a full of different ways of doing bricks it and it wasn't specific. at the time but note that no it is this in parliament they try to do a few bits and pieces but it's cursory because bricks it is just to paralyze the country entirely i'm just wondering what's at stake danielle from your perspective
11:44 pm
as to who actually then becomes the leader of the conservative party or them becomes the prime minister from your perspective what are your what are your hopes and what are your faves. well i think to pick up on what lauren said there is absolutely right parliament has been stuck it's being stale for so bone marrow because of bricks it so what what's really state is that things haven't been getting discussed that are really important we've been calling for so many debates i called recently for debates on young people's mental health but we're just not having anything going through parliament no legislation's going through parliament because of that but. when i said earlier about you know jeremy hunt comments about you know the businesses and tom said that he's quite the pessimist and that court assessment actually boris and said that we need to leave do or die what you know is quite dramatic language but also that's quite pessimistic is it not and it just
11:45 pm
the little i know these are my ring tones of mexico no he's not results that was a quote that was by journalists to talk radio and it is a fact of life that the conservative votes that you would not have only a general election if it fails to deliver but it's. certainly will and i'm throwing around that is always there and it's all about the conservative party that's why we had the referendum in the 1st place david cameron trying to save the party keep the party together and now you think the sort of men and women 4000000 i need to take on that mean just about the conservative party the reason why we have the rusher and was because there was a huge swelling of your is listening to the concert in voice and tom khalid's and you had just that the labor force of daniel rally and before that you had the beautiful voice of moments to me the surprisingly is not gray head of all of the reporting it's been today about brecht it and the european union and the u.k.

11:50 pm
a few hours from now the un security council is due to hold an emergency session on the bombing in tripoli the un's mission in libya has called the strike a cowardly act which could constitute a war crime it's still there are around 670000 refugees migrants and asylum seekers in libya and the u.n. says it's particularly concerned about the more than 3000 people who are in these details. sions center is quite often close to the front lines that the tripoli government has blamed the forces of warlord holly for hafter but exactly who carried out the attack and why a detention center was it remains unclear we start our coverage with mahmoud abdul we're hand in tripoli this is the migrant detention center in neighborhoods in the eastern suburbs of the libyan capital tripoli it has just been hit by an airstrike launched by fighter jets loyal to the world khalifa haftar it's very
11:51 pm
tragic here dead bodies are still under the law but i can see dead that is over there and here the medical workers are just picking up one dead body over there. is this this detention center according to the supervisor here there were about 150 migrants here in this detention center from different nationalities including african nationalities and the see that the airstrike was very precise that it hit the center. the center of the detention center this is the creators of the airstrike it's very pro sized but here the. source is with the government of the u.n. back the government of national called accuse has to play for the jets of targeting this detention center here supervisors here say that they have managed to transfer
11:52 pm
those who made it the other migrants who are still alive to other areas but there is yet there is still a state of panic among the other migrants and also among civilians who live in the nearby they say that this explosion was huge we can see embassies just rushing here to. pick up the dead bodies and transferred the casualties to medical center. well the eighty's foreign policy chief says the attack highlights the vulnerable situation of migrants who are caught up in the b.s. conflict alexia brian has more on what happened late on tuesday night. traumatized and scared they wait outside the migrant camp that was their temporary home and they're among the hundreds of thousands who've come to libya in search of a better life across the sea in europe. for some here their dream is now over
11:53 pm
victims of a conflict that has nothing to do with them. this is the same to just a few months ago people have spent days or weeks traveling through the days it often and brutally hot temperatures and at the hands of smugglers it's those about 600 people living here the part that was hit in an airstrike late on tuesday night about 150 main refugees and migrants many from west africa. like. the u.n. recognize government in tripoli is blaming rival forces for the attack saying it
11:54 pm
was deliberate. the situation in libya has become increasingly volatile since april when forces loyal to warlord khalifa haftar launched an offensive to control the capital hundreds of people have been killed and tens of thousands displaced in the fighting. forces most of whom are part of the self declared libyan national army have carried out several air raids on tripoli in recent days after losing the town of nearby ellen a head the area before the area has. probably some targets that are of interest. but this is a very. densely populated area. the violence has worsened the suffering in migrant attention centers some close to the front lines which has those pushed back by the european funded libyan coast guard the un's described the conditions in the same as appalling with little food and water repeatedly calling
11:55 pm
for them to be closed it's condemned tuesday's attack saying civilians should never be targeted brian al jazeera right we can speak to toby kaplan his an international human rights lawyer and co-founder of the law firm guernica 37 joining us live from london thanks for talking to us at the u.n. mission in libya has raised the prospect of this being categorized as a war crime do you think it is. yes absolutely. obviously the fingers being pointed at the moment. clearly for and his relief after and his his troops this is not the 1st time they've talked to tripoli and certainly not the 1st time he's been accused of committing war crimes crimes against humanity but certainly this attack on the face of it. is is to be considered walker and there's no military justification for the attack it is
11:56 pm
a civilian target civilian casualties so we will have to see what comes out of the u.n. security council no but certainly opposition is it constitutes a war crime there could it be argued to be that there are many levels of responsibility in this tragedy what was a detention center for migrants doing in such close proximity to military death is for instance i mean there the authority is living with or it is that's where they've put them what about the e.u. who's migration policy has led to this number of people being returned by the libyan coast guard and left pretty much to their own devices in these detention centers which of course we all know are particularly harrowing in terms of their conditions so many people could be responsible would you say. absolutely i think you've touched on a number of very very important issues 1st of all when considering whether this constitutes a war crime the question will be have to be aust the close proximity to military
11:57 pm
targets and whether those the talked at actually were aware that there were civilian areas detention facilities within military compounds so that's the 1st question the you mention the e.u. policy that's certainly something which is now the subject of a filing that has been made with the international criminal court in relation to crimes against humanity falling on the responsibility of the e.u. and a member states of course there is also the responsibility of the un sanctioned un supported government in tripoli in terms of the conditions that it is detaining migrants in and around tripoli so yes there is a number of issues that need to be looked at but it is again part of the lack of accountability lack of justice for repeated attacks throughout different
11:58 pm
parts a libya which is again very disturbing absolutely i was going to say to you i mean given the the frequency of civilian casualties in this war in libya is it is it realistic to expect that those responsible for war crimes will ever be held accountable. what it is it is obviously a very difficult question to answer. the 1st point the intercommunal court has jurisdiction over the situation in libya following the un security council resolution referring the situation so the i.c.c. has jurisdiction but we have also seen indictments and arrest warrants issued certainly for for with ali one of. does deputies have to has effectively protected him from from being sent to the i.c.c. so there are there have been numerous calls to cooperate with the i.c.c.
11:59 pm
which haven't been carried out and there's been no real domestic ability or capacity to develop an accountability mechanism something that we've been calling for for some time we are a group actually filed a case against her in 2016 sitting at war crimes in benghazi and the i.c.c. has failed to take any action in relation to that as well i think primarily because after has support from a number of western states there has been this perception that he has been protected from prosecution but i think that time has to end when the security council has to take a very strong position on this. thank you for that heavy cadman international human rights lawyer to reduce live from london right now we can go live to the nigerian capital a bigger inslee to our correspondent made a dress because ahmed we know that many nigerians take this route stead they try to get across the mediterranean in europe so therefore we assume that there could be
12:00 am
quite a few nigerians involved in this tragic attack. exactly that's what we're hearing right now and it's like the officials here actually at a loss of. how many people how many nigerians i involve coming in i did as well dead or injured in that particular attack but it's such in that a lot of nigerians why involved among the casualties and one official described to me that it's shocking it's barbaric it's condemn a whole and great just whether or not of this attack from yesterday whether the sort of push the nigerian government to accelerate its repatriation program of voluntary repatriation program of stranded migrants nigerian migrants trying to do in libya it's not clear at the moment but we know thousands of them have been returned home since december 2017 to date and the nigerian government is continuing with that.
