a game of chicken with the european union saying it's must compromise to stop a new deal breaks it. and one of the biggest data breaches in banking history the personal information of more than 100000000 people stolen after capital one is hacked. and i'm with all your sports a court stops costa semenya from running at the world championships in another blow to her hopes of ever defending her 800 meter title. this is sudan's really military council says it has suspended schools across the country until further notice security forces have fired tear gas and live ammunition at protesters as mass rallies continue against the deaths of 5 students on monday the council has condemned the killings and says it's not clear who was behind it it was morgan has this report from. voicing anger thousands of
12:02 am
demonstrators mostly high school and university students came out on tuesday in sudan's capital for assume and other cities they are protesting the deaths of fellow protesters in a low grade in north kordofan state on monday thanks when protesters came out decrying the lack of bread and height in transportation prices security forces opened fire in response killing several and entering dozens others. had blood for blood we will never accept anything but justice civilian we salute everyone and obey city for standing for the sake of the nation it is an epic moment in our country's history was well mrs to the military council is that it's time to. must stop the killing our people the students in the streets this military council is nothing but ribbons of the old regime and they must stick to tell me how to use this protesters were also met with tear gas and live ammunition with
12:03 am
doctors reporting several injuries as a result the protesters are also demanding justice and accountability following an announcement from an investigation committee that the ruling military is not to blame for killing protesters on june 3rd when a month long pro-democracy sit in was attacked by the army the military council has been ruling sudan since ousting longtime president already bashir in april they have been in talks with the opposition coalition known as the forces of freedom and change to form a transitional government and initial agreement was signed earlier this month but a final deal is yet to be rehearsed talks for that final deal have been repeatedly postponed over the past few days with uncertainty on when talks would resume some analysts say what happens next depends on the military council you know the web's right now are the gate or the transitional council it is their responsibility for security forces there. i think there is some trust that confidence on the part of
12:04 am
the nation that in the event that these forces. are courting to unity month that they have the right to go out and protest people do want some form of reckoning. in terms of some of the abuse of them violence and that have been perpetrated by the former the jim but at the same time i think you do need some kind of discipline to compromise. to give this drug has a chance but anger amongst the demonstrators is high as is the demand for justice as some demand a halt to negotiations and as protest has continued to be met with violence and certainty over sudan's future continues and if it can steer itself to a stable transitional period people morgan al jazeera i did. well let's take this on we can speak now to ashraf mohammed ali who is a sudanese protester and who was part of the protests in on demand on tuesday joins us live via skype ashraf welcome to the program give us if you would a sense
12:05 am
a sense of the mood on the streets the protests continuing. actually. i want to. lie. today and. actually. took place today. and others so many other. basic demand. to see what happened in. delivering those.
12:06 am
shooting at school children do you think it was a calculated move or do you think it was just. busy pulling a trigger happy military personnel i don't actually see the point behind. killing. children because that. that was an appalling. these are not the right people to actually. or. matter of security. the head of the really military has said there must be accountability. statement issued by the head of. which has
12:07 am
declared. today. a crime which i find. we all know that didn't. actually make major. and gave. basically. nothing nothing mentioned about. the process that they're going to make. in the count. one of us you something we're looking at pictures of protesters on
12:08 am
the street you have been protesting since january yourself. involved in. house how frightening is it to be out on the streets given what just happened and what happened back in june what's it like. really it's really. scary. experience. because every time. we actually know that certain that the military or the secret to post to. me live ammunition. which is really scary. basically this is not going to help the people of sudan. because. i don't any any less than.
12:09 am
we actually are actually. willing to do whatever it takes in order to. create a bad. human and protect democracy. appreciate your time thanks very much indeed for talking to. coming thank you. 10 passengers from the u.n. security council have delivered a diplomatic petition to the secretary general on syria they want to turn it to terrorist to set up an inquiry into the bombing of hospitals in italy on temperament and its space joins us with more and james tell us a little more about what this is all about. this is called a demarche it is a diplomatic petition that is delivered in person and in this case in person to the u.n. secretary general it followed a meeting of the security council where again the security council since things have intensified in it since april has heard that things are still continuing to
12:10 am
get worse the 7th security council meeting in that period of time the un's humanitarian coordinator mark lowcock told the security council that they need to look at themselves and they should take action i have to say that those that carried out the demarche 2 thirds of the security council 10 ambassadors believe the un secretary general himself and mr local who was present at this meeting need to do more they believe it's possible for the u.n. to set up an inquiry and discover who is bombing hospitals immediately after that demarche that meeting in the secretary of office i spoke to mr local you put the ball in the court of the security council but 10 members of that security council of now being to see the secretary general you were there at the meeting saying actually it's you that should take action you should set up an inquiry into these bombings are you now going to set up such an inquiry well yes members of the
12:11 am
council have been to see the secretary general area today and raised issues with him in the thank you general thinking about the request that was made and he will in due course decide how best to address the request. watching this you may think that they are all passing the buck from one to the other it's certainly worth saying though that the ambassadors that went to see the secretary general saying he needs to set up an inquiry and has the power in this the president do so are from 10 council members who have had that position for some time it's worth noting the council members that didn't join this demarche they were the 3 african members china and most notably of course russia because when it comes to hospitals being bombed in syria they're only are 2 countries that have the assets to do so the syrian regime and russia are james
12:12 am
thanks very much james baker reporting there from the united nations let's speak now to robert ford who's a senior fellow at the middle east institute in washington a former u.s. ambassador to syria indeed and he joins me live via skype from maine this for the ambassador ford what's your feeling about this this inquiry is going to happen well the point of the inquiry is frankly to build pressure on russia and i would be surprised if the russians allowed the security council to vote in paper such an investigation i would expect the russians to use their veto right so therefore it's all very well the u.n. security council making statements here and there and making resolutions here and there but ultimately is that age old criticism ultimately it's toothless. when there is disagreement among the permanent 5 members of the security council the
12:13 am
ones with vetoes it's very hard for the united nations to take any strong action and russia has been using its veto to protect the asada government and russian forces from any kind of united nations condemnation that goes back to 2011 and the security council is really being very careful never to identify responsible nations isn't about time it just did it just pointed the finger and was was just direct. well i certainly think so before it came on air i was checking some of the united nations public statements about the bombing in airstrikes and it live over the last couple of months and there is a lot of passive tense in the united nations condemnations they're not factually wrong they just don't point out who's conducting the airstrikes or who is conducting the artillery strikes it think therefore ready these ambassadors who
12:14 am
went to see the secretary general of the day trying to get the united nations to be more direct and to put the finger of blame on the perpetrators in this case russia and syria right so is that we're all talking about this right now but ultimately busy the bottom line is that it will probably nothing is going to happen you know saying that probably won't be an inquiry so where do we stand that the international community just stands back and watches this appalling tragedy unfold . as you say it is an appalling tragedy and i think the worst thing we could do now is to give the syrian civilians who are undergoing this horrible bombing to give them false hopes that somehow the international community is going to rescue them the syrians themselves have to make decisions about what to do but at least they need to have a clear under. standing at the limits of what the international community is going to do a medley it is
12:15 am
a failure of the international community isn't it oh yes absolutely the way the system is designed course it goes back to 1945 with the security council but it's designed to do nothing if one of the permanent 5 decides to block action the only thing really that could be considered then is is there a way to use some kind of principle of responsibility to protract and around the security council but the. reality is of that are certainly subject to debate rather for a very important get your perspective on this we do appreciate your time thanks very much thank you. or coming up on this news or where i live in the u.s. state of detroit so where the 2nd democratic presidential debates will soon get underway . clashes erupt outside a police station in hong kong after hundreds gathered to demand the release of detained demonstrators. and one of the world's most famous footballers is told his
12:16 am
rape case is being dropped peter will tell you more in school. the british prime minister says the e.u. must compromise in order to prevent or no deal breaks it on october 31st johnson made the comments during a trip to wells where he pledged continued support for farmers in the event of a new deal breaks it farmers faces steep tariffs in the mass slaughter of livestock if the u.k. cannot secure. we're not aiming for an ideal bet in which we don't think that's where we'll end up this is very much up to a prince of partners across the channel they know that 3 times the house of commons has thrown out that backstop there's no way that we can get it through if they can't compromise if they really can't do it then clearly we have to get ready for an ideal exit and i think well will do i think that the people of this country are
12:17 am
full of resolve and purpose and we will look after the farming sector i mean while the british pound has fallen to its lowest level against the us dollar in more than 2 years it's also dropped to a 7 month low against the euro currency has been falling since price johnson became prime minister last week economists warn it could weaken further as the likelihood of a new deal breaks it increases general has been following developments from central london. to an extent i think the u.k. will have grown used to a fluctuating pound in the 3 years and a bit since the break that referendum in 2016 ebbing and flowing with the fortunes of brakes at the concern from a currency point of view now will be how far the pound may yet have to fall and how quickly with some analysts suggesting it could go to parity with the euro even conceivably parity with the dollar in the run up to this october 31st deadline and the hard breaks it no deal rhetoric of new prime minister boris johnson who has set
12:18 am
the bar for a new deal with the e.u. so high he wants the northern ireland back stop removed altogether that the e.u. is unlikely to concede and boris johnson says well if they don't change their minds it will be a no deal bragg's it in wales talking to welsh farmers he's been warned of civil unrest among welsh farmers who face large tariffs being slapped on their lamb exports in the event of no deal will serve re which way boris johnson looks there are the potential negative consequences of no deal that hasn't done anything to change his very positive optimistic rhetoric on no deal or from ramming home the central message as he did in wales saying the ball is in the e.u. hughes court if they don't concede no deal will be britain's. and answer from the e.u. came from earlier varadkar the irish tea shock in a scratchy apparently phone call saying the e.u.
12:19 am
is a unified in its position that they will be no renegotiation of to resume a's withdrawal agreement no removal of the backstop. u.s. president donald trump has once again brushed off by his ations of racism as he doubles down on his criticism of programs of black and minority leaders several lawmakers have boycotted an event that trump attended and what they say is racist rhetoric events image and it was to most 400 years of u.s. democracy until the accused days he stayed away of. people through the posco night trump has targeted for minority democratic congresswoman a black politician representing baltimore and a problem and civil rights activist i am the least great person there is anywhere in the world when you i don't know if you know i'm a bit like that. but i got along with about. the race. right.
12:20 am
when i. get america. no president has been able to. the race is on for who will become the us democratic presidential candidate to challenge trump in elections that should the 2nd televised debate since you take place in detroit candidates will be trying to convince their own party members that the right person to run against old from 100 has. it is a battle for the future of the democratic party this week's democratic presidential debates pits safely centrist candidates led by former vice president joe biden against the party's revolutionaries senators elizabeth warren and bernie sanders i want to see somebody that's has more progressive ideas get the ticket so it doesn't fall back on to biden which to me would be a repeat of the hillary clinton so i'm kind of hoping that one of the other candidates whether it's warren or bernie they're vying for his spot at the top of
12:21 am
the polls with calls for publicly funded health insurance immigration reform and higher taxes on the wealthy while the front runner always has a target painted on his or her back so he has to expect some are tax. and he's susceptible to attacks by dint of the fact that he's the most senior politician he has the longest record to defend california senator come harris joined the top 4 contenders to unseat president donald trump after she attacked biting civil rights record in the 1st debate do you agree today that you were wrong to oppose bussing in america then do you agree i did not oppose him in america biden says this time he won't be is nice trading barbs this past week with new jersey senator cory booker over criminal justice i'm disappointed that is taking joe biden years and years until he was running for president to actually say that he made a mistake or if there are things in that bill that were extraordinarily bad if you
12:22 am
want to go back and talk about records are happy today but i'd rather talk about the future the candidates are expected to be on the attack this debate will likely winnow down the unprecedentedly large field of 20 in 2 nights of debates with polling and fundraising numbers going up to qualify for a 3rd round of debates in september money will almost certainly start to dry up for those who don't perform well here it's no surprise that this debate is being held here in detroit democrats are keenly aware that donald trump won in 2016 by knocking down the supposedly solid democratic blue wall in states like wisconsin pennsylvania and here in michigan where he won by about $10000.00 votes the narrowest victory anywhere in the country. so far only the top 4 in south bend indiana mayor pete booty gedge qualify for round 3 that leaves contenders like amy club which are better o'rourke and kirsten gillibrand scrambling to prove their
12:23 am
viability trump might well weigh in from the white house unifying democrats recently after he attacked for minority democratic women in congress many democratic voters remain undecided and kind of waiting for the deal to do with it down you know it's hard to keep up it's like more of the people to i think that i mean it's almost like doing a school assignment and know each of these people but time is short and fundraising dollars are increasingly focusing on likely winners making this debate a struggle for survival john hendren l. jazeera detroit. well the 2nd round of debates will see 20 kind of it's a period but it's not one features big name contenders but it's on the list with warren and better rock among others and they will see joe biden and cory booker takes the stage with several a lesser known participants but over the course of 12 democratic debates the field will be whittled down as we've just been hearing and after this round the threshold to qualify for future encounters will get that much harder and the contenders will
12:24 am
need to prove they've both the popular and financial backing to progress at all this benchley culminates the next year the policy will hold its presidential primaries then and caucuses and a series of electoral contests to select more than $3700.00 delegates to the democratic national convention and then these delegates will decide on the final kind of it's a face off against the mandela trump so let's go live now and sir john 101 who is in detroit john tell us more about what we're expecting that tonight. like you said the threshold is going to get harder and that means some of those candidates at the bottom of the polls are going to try to break out tonight they're going to because for many of them this this campaign could be merely hours old if they don't make it through this that their funding could dry up their support could dry up so they're really going to want to break through they're going to want to break through in places like detroit one reason for that is that trump of course
12:25 am
won michigan he was the 1st republican to do that since 1988 and he won even where he lost and what i mean by that is in addition to winning this state overall he won here in detroit in the sense that 10000 fewer african-americans who tend to vote for democrats did not vote those are people who did vote in 2016 so with 10000 fewer people voting than was the margin for trump in this state for a little more on that i'm going to bring in steve he is. a political consultant and he's got a t.v. show here called detroit wants to know you got it right i got it right i had to practice that a couple of times to lie is this so important here well 1st of all we had major apathy back in 2016 i actually went to a woman in the gas stations after i voted i said are you going to go vote she said no i said why not she said because the electoral college is going to do what they're going to do my vote doesn't count and that was pervasive so 10000 people
12:26 am
just stayed home and gave it to president right so what are the candidates have to do to get people to come out and vote 1st of all here in detroit and then in michigan overall because they're 2 different things right yes they are 2 different things 1st of all they've got to get through march 10th 2020 that's the democratic primary here in michigan it's going to be cold and they've got to get to the voters and bring them out for that should they get to that make it through the national convention then they've got to spend money here hillary clinton pulled her money out of michigan she thought she had it all luck and she did and still even when she had money here there was no direct hillary clinton advocacy money it was get out the vote not get out and vote for hillary clinton there's no hillary clinton versus trump there was no negative ads on trump so one of they do it shrug on his votes in places as you were telling me earlier like mccomb county a largely white suburb outside of detroit but here in detroit is 80 percent
12:27 am
african-american these days after a little gentrification recently what did the candidates have to do differently to speak to each of those groups of voters in detroit they need good endorsers harris has the michigan democratic party's black caucus but she also has another group of people the cap abba sorority ok they're like 3000 strong in southeastern michigan that comes in big time during a coal primary you have joe biden with with mayor duggan's indorsement he has his his people. so that takes care of basically detroit but some has got to get out to mccollum county all right some he's got a flip mccomb county those white democratic voters that will workers you know industrial people that went for trump they've got to bring them back to the democratic party and are you seeing any favorites here are there people in detroit people in michigan who are saying this is our guy or woman right now the reason to
12:28 am
favorite is joe biden just because nobody's touching anybody that says i think if cory booker kemal here start touching people well it was one starts touching people you know to be great so eventually a view from here in detroit but i would expect people to come out swinging it because those backbenchers in this race need to break through today or it could be over for them all right we'll see what happens john thanks very much that see a picture in detroit john 100. sort of. a grim task because relatives of inmates killed in a brazilian prison right gather to identify the victims plus. i'm natasha butler in normandy whether demolition of this dam has sparked a particle between 2 opposing environmental visions. and with just days to go to the venue for the 1st ashes cricket just gets surreal so you can get to have the details.

holland as you can see china behind me it's not really that something happens and it's here it's creating community piles and these protesters are blocking the doors and try to stop these kinds from leaving but at this stage something to say now getting angry so you can cook i support the protesters but i don't agree with people's ways they choose to protest. or they do not represent us it's not going to help if they keep protesting like this these protests here which is on the mc hour which is the railway station the railway system here in hong kong it's a part of i was a little bit of protests that will continue throughout the week and that includes another rally on friday another one on sunday as well as sunday so as you can see despite the government from china to china pull back these protest movements and stop these rallies the chances of growing it. the person dates are more than 100000000 people has been stolen in a hike targeting u.s.

12:36 am
a consumer standpoint that the bank did not immediately detect its vulnerability now it has assured consumers that no fraud was committed with their information as a result of this exposure but given that it's only been a few weeks since this hacking was detected many consumers not feeling completely confident about that now this is an increasing problem in the united states not only has capitol one been affected but in previous years we've seen banks like j.p. morgan chase bank of america citibank the average cost for a bank to deal with a situation like this more than $8000000.00 so it certainly has a financial interest but also in consumer satisfaction to try and rectify what seems to be an ongoing problem for banks in the united states and around the world environmentalist's in indonesia you're accusing the state energy company of big concern for an oil spill of west java they say the leak is affecting not only marine life and tourism but also people's health like supra this report. diez
