11:25 am
a prison killing a police officer and carrying illegal firearms but their families say they were coerced into false confessions they are present as family. there are at their prisoners that we have tortured. and one of them that. was on wheelchair during that period when he was in the jail on friday a protester climbed on top of the behind the embassy building in london going on britain's new prime minister boyce johnson to intervene the. international human rights groups had warned against the executions and called behinds actions shameful a last minute appeal by the united nations special repertoire on extrajudicial killings was ignored agnes calamine said the men were allegedly tortured prevented from attending their trial and sentenced to death in absentia but the behind the
11:26 am
embassy in washington compared it to capital punishment in the u.s. adding the trials were conducted in accordance with the rules of the kingdom of bahrain which maintain international standards the situation to execute these 2 young men came one day after the united states announced that they were going to start federal executions again which of course you know the politics in the gulf you know that the gulf states always feel like they need a green light to commit the violations that they commit from their allies in the us i was some see the executions as yet another crackdown on shias and the opposition by behind sunni led government says the 27 arab. spring protests hundreds of people demanding police group form as well as human rights activists have been jailed silenced or forced to leave. aside at al-jazeera. sam morton as
11:27 am
a human rights activists is specializes in bahrain and he says the trials in manama are not credible and fail to meet international standards there can be no further on the current judicial system which it would be generous to describe as a kangaroo court but also we've seeing. credible reports of torture. we've heard from the families of the men that one of them was shot during his arrest and those bullets were only removed 23 days later when they came to visit him. in prison he was in a wheelchair his toenails had all been removed he couldn't walk and he said he used electroshock buttons on him and beaten him severely and forced him to sign a confession so these trials are frankly the least credible trials i can think of this really is is par for the course in bahrain we saw 3 executions
11:28 am
a couple of years ago in 2017 of a very similar pattern and we're seeing these executions now a lot of that has been linked to in fact the reign embassy in the united states linked the executions explicitly to donald trump resuming executions in america and i think it's very important to link the timing of these executions to the recess in the u.k. e.u. and us parliamentary bodies because bahrain does not want scrutiny of excess occasions so it's good to talk about it on the media. among foreign ministers an hour on for talks on the worsening crisis in the gulf amman is meeting thing in the dispute over impounded british and the iranian tanker same bus probably reports the amount of foreign ministry yousif been allowed we've been a visit comes at a very critical time we know that this morning he's met with members of the foreign
11:29 am
ministry including his counterpart jawad serif no doubt they were discussing seize tankers the ukraine iran those seized each other's oil tankers and later today the your money foreign minister will be meeting with iran's national security advisers so really these tankers will be the crux of the conversations they'll be having he's been here before his last visit was 3 months ago so this dialogue about regional tensions has been ongoing with oman for some time it also comes as the u.k. announced just days earlier that it will be sending as a matter of routine as a matter of course military vessels to function as escorts for its oil tankers and its cargo vessels that navigate the waters of the region especially the strait of hormuz so really the talk and the tactics being employed now are vermin the essence of a much more violent time of a of a much more dangerous time for vessels in the region in the 1980 s. when many oil tankers had become casualties of the iran iraq war now it is
11:30 am
certainly not as dangerous in those waterways now as it was back then and the omani foreign ministers mission will be to try to keep it that way but also to deescalate tensions even further. colombians have been protesting in bogota against the killings of human rights activists hundreds have been murdered by criminal groups since the signing of a peace deal with fark rebels 3 years ago. the reports. thousands of colombians took to the streets of the capital enough dozens of cities worldwide all united by a single message and the alarming rate at which human rights defenders and civil society leaders are being killed. hundreds of latest have been killed and our government pretends to be deaf and blind they pretend they don't see what's happening to our leaders. to us one of 1300 community leaders
11:31 am
currently on their threat almost 500 have been killed since the signing of a peace deal with 5 rebels as criminal groups fight for control of look at drug trafficking and illegal mining in remote territories and as paramilitary groups connected to criminal political elites oppose lamed restitution programs. but i think this government doesn't want to find out who is paying to kill these leaders there are very powerful look at how west with high connection to the national power and i believe there is a complicit silence. the 9 year old crying over the dead body of his mother community leader. sparked a wave of indignation that spurred the rally. protesters want the government of president. this part of the peace deal to do more to protect the leaders and impunity and recognize that the killings are systematic in nature. but while
11:32 am
president ducat did march in the coastal city of kut to hannah his right wing party was the only one not to endorse the rally despite being booed by protesters who came made the call for unity. i don't. hurt when a life is lost in our country when a voice of silence when hope is distinguished by violence we deeply reject old expressions of violence which are filled by drug trafficking organized crime and illegal mining this is the largest demonstration since the signing of the peace agreement and were undoubtedly put more pressure on the president to get everybody here agrees that unless something gets done to truly effect the power structures behind the violence there will be more killings and they will remain the single biggest threat to the implementation of the peace deal in the country. i just you know. the courts in nigeria has given the government permission to classify
