or it's in the western europe or in muslim countries with regard to the muslim world i think the messages to it is that it should address the current rivalry and division that increasingly is existing between iran and saudi arabia who are for influence because it also feeds then. and exacerbates a division between sunni and shia muslims and a lot of this is connected to what has been going on politically for example the the war in syria and particularly the the war in yemen the saudi see iran as a great influence there and the other side of it is iran sees the saudis as basically you know engaged in in warfare and and and chilling both military and innocence and indeed much of the international community has questioned that that kind of bombing so there's

3:40 am
0 there has been widespread criticism of the decision to hold the heavyweight boxing rematch between and junior and anthony joshua in saudi arabia it's a decision that has drawn criticism following the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi inside the saudi consulate in istanbul the country's ongoing military campaign in yemen the 2 will collide on december the 7th in the riyadh on the outskirts so malik has more. it's one of the most highly anticipated fights of the year but the boxing itself looks set to be overshadowed anthony joshua's attempt to recapture his world titles from andy rooney's is set to happen this december in saudi arabia. the decision has drawn criticism because assad arabia's human rights record in a statement amnesty international said if found to be joshua farts and the ruiz jr in saudi arabia it's likely to be yet another opportunity for the saudi authorities
3:41 am
to try to sports washed their severely tarnished image. saudi arabia has still managed to secure a number of huge events in the country despite the criticism former unified world champion american was paid millions to fight in jeddah last month. in 2018 world wrestling entertainment staged their 1st event there as part of a 10 year deal worth a reported $450000000.00. saudi arabia has also agreed a 5 year deal to host the dakar rally however criticism and pressure has seen some of its called off. novak djokovic and rafael nadal pulled out of an exhibition last december the match would have seen them net $1000000.00 each. nonetheless for the joshua match it seems business interests have prevailed say that it was a business decision it's based on that money is going to earn it will be as hard
3:42 am
and cold as that's once it's just stretching your grounds you boundaries for these very big sports it's going to be a lot of complaining and go going to camp and they'll be a lot of complaining just full of sports but loads of friends will still. and the juncture is big news amnesty international has urged joshua to find out more about side your abuse human rights record. but with the country investing $100000000.00 in the fight and with both fighters expected to earn millions themselves it's difficult to see anybody pulling out so hale malik. diana small and this is a con is that kevin iowa and las vegas can not stop with the $1000000.00 question why saudi arabia and i think it's just that some a it's money the fact that they offer so much more money than anywhere else in the world las vegas historically has gotten these mega fight because they can offer
3:43 am
a lot of money to bring their rich people in to come watch the fight but saudi arabia offered an enormous amount of money the promoter eddie herm felt he couldn't turn down kevin to what extent of fighting in saudi arabia will damage the reputation of these fighters i think really it's going to damage anthony joshua's reputation not so much andy ruiz andy ruiz is at the mercy of eddie hearn the promoter and anthony joshua because he signed a contract that gave them the right in the event he won their 1st fight to put it where they chose and when they chose so he didn't have a lot of say in this i know he's not happy about having to go there and he was hoping it would at least be in new york as opposed to being in saudi arabia but i don't think it's going to hurt any ruiz but i think it's going to take a toll on an otherwise spotless image that anthony joshua yes what about the belt and the rally like they have all these fights that have gone to saudi arabia is it
3:44 am
also about the money 100 percent i mean these companies look at it a lot of them are public companies that feel like they have a duty to their stockholders and if they can make that kind of money to bring it there they do it but i think with the human rights violations that are going on they have to look at more than just that and what's happening in yemen when happens with gay people what they how they treat women i think all this has to be brought into the argument as well. kevin just one more thing there's a lot of pressure on social media on both sides as do you think anthony will reconsider. i think they're going to go ahead with the fight unfortunately i think it's been negotiated if they were going to reconsider they would have done it last week when the negotiations were going on and said hey i'm not going to fight there i gine know any hurt is getting a lot of blowback on this on social media but i don't think the fighters at this point well really poor taste on they sign contracts come back almost kevin i'll thank you very much for talking to us just over

3:51 am
resulted on the the separatists to take over the 4th brigade along with the presidential palace in harmonics and also. important military camps like camp they have already taken over port and government institutions this is an indication that the separatists barked by the united. heading away to fulfill their long years dream of taking over the. current in government to kind of the interim capital of the internationally recognized government this is another fairly for the saudi lid quality and in yemen they have already failed to take over the capital sanaa and to reinstate to the form of the president once or had the. well meanwhile huth you rebels say they've launched another 2 drone attacks from yemen on an airport in southern saudi arabia
3:52 am
a spokesman for the group says the strikes hit a fueling station an air force and targeted a monitoring tower disrupting flights it is the latest in a series of drone attacks by the thesis in recent days or let's take a white a look then at the situation in yemen peter solsbury is the senior yemen analyst at the international crisis group and he joins us live now from new york great to have you with us on the program this civil war in yemen has got even more complicated for people to understand so the separatists have been part of that broad saudi led coalition supporting the government against the rebels why have they decided now is the time to break away from that coalition and pursue their own aims in southern yemen. sure well this is never been just a conflict between 2 sides and pretty much from 2015 on where this one southern forces pushed the movies out of 89 and much of south yemen and we've seen the
3:53 am
growth of a new group the southern transitional council who really come from a subgroup of secession a sewer supported by the united arab emirates and a very much against a slow humans named sunni islamist party who are the main partner of the how do you count them and in the war in in the north and what we've seen over the last 2 years is this group the s.t.c. and its allied forces who also confusing me full of them the how the ministry of interior really pushing full control over all of yemen southern governor it's either a place in government or to take over completely itself and over the last few days precipitates by the killing by the booth is one of their senior military commanders we've seen this group finally sort of take a turn and there's a real possibility didn't coming days we'll see more violence in other governorates as they take over at
3:54 am
a loyalist military camps do you think then that this is now heading towards a separate states in southern yemen. i think it's too early to say it's. it's really difficult to know exactly what will happen next obviously the end goal of the s.c.c. the stated end goal of the s.t.c. is a separate southern state south arabia they call it not even south yemen but there's been no declaration of that state yet and i would imagine that keep balancing internal coalition politics and to sustain that of the conflict against the who theories it wouldn't be the best move to do that at this time but that certainly is their ambition at some point and this is a step a step towards that and what does that mean do you think for the wider battle against the who thinks now i think there's a big question now as to how how do you government responds as to how saudi arabia responds and whether or not some sort of dual can be worked out to prevent
3:55 am
contagion across the south many of the forces who are fighting the who these on the red sea coasts on the front lines and on to have data from the southern yemen many of them allied with the s.t.c. although not all so we could see fighting between the current allied forces who are fighting against the who these which would improve through these hands we could see don't come to some form of accommodation in the coming days and weeks that sustains the current status is quote but everything is in flux for the time being yeah and given the separatists are being trained and they were backed by the u.a.e. how does this now affect the u.a.e. relations with saudi arabia i mean to the to differ in their aims for yemen. when totally different aims for yemen but since the beginning of the war the saudi's main partner on the ground has been forces who are seen as being aligned with islam with some what some people call not entirely accurately yemen's muslim brotherhood
3:56 am
whereas the u.a.e. has really built its relationship with the southern forces that became the s.t.c. who are rabidly anti it's large so we've had this problem for a long time of a general goal of defeating that who thirty's and eroding iranian influence in yemen using groups who are diametrically opposed in terms of their goals and there's a another issue here which is the u.a.e. some time as thought that the war could only be ended politically that there isn't a military solution they were the architects of this push up the red sea coast much fear an attempt to weaken the movies and push them into a weaker negotiating position when the u.s. and in the wider international community into being and they made it very clear that ok the war's over for them and they really want to see a political solution what's the how do you give them and the saudis have been looking for some form of military solution ongoing so there's
3:57 am
a real job vergence in their approach to yemen but not in their ultimate goals and i suspect that the alliance between the u.a.e. and saudi arabia will be not too badly damaged in the long term by this really great perspective an explanation of this separate complex situation joining us there from new york thank you. at least 67 people have been killed and dozens injured after a fuel tank exploded in tanzania it happened in the town of a titchy both west of the capital today in that people were trying to recover fuel from their vehicle which had overturned when the blast happened they never have it has mall. a rushville feel that ended in tragedy a fuel tank had been heading from darcy none to tanzania's capital to germany when it overturned to close to a bus stop in the town of moral. people came to take what they could. but then
