8:05 pm
and this is definitely a qualitative. improvement in the range versus what we've seen from testing of ballistic missiles in north korea over the last few months and this will i think put pressure among other things on the trumpet ministration and how they do in north korea you know trumpet said the short range ballistic missile tests that were not a problem that they were standard you know this is obviously. 'd higher terms of threat of course it's very much will depend on how good north korea submarine capabilities are and what we know about them so far is that they're not particularly sophisticated in submarine warfare technology by the u.s. and japan and south korea i would have a very good chance of being able to track north korea submarine so i wouldn't treat that threat in alarmist way but clearly north korea is improving their delivery capabilities. in hong kong an 18 year old student shot and injured by police during
8:06 pm
anti-government protest has been charged with rioting and assaulting 2 offices students of the chinese university of hong kong held a rally to condemn the shooting of their colleague on tuesday which was a national day in china so a car cares more from the court where the student was charged. the 18 year old high school student who shot the live bullet during tuesday's demonstrations by a police officer has now been charged with a number of offenses including rioting arson and assaulting a police officer that he wasn't able to appear in thursday's court hearing it was shot in court simply because he's still in hospital in stable condition he was one of the group of 7 cases that were heard at the shot in court but only 4 of those people were able to attend because of the injuries now a couple 100 people gathered at that court to show their support for the high school student who was shot because the police are still under pressure as to why they used live bullets during that demonstration and why they targeted the protesters chest now on friday the government is expected to announce a special meeting the executive council which is affectively the government's
8:07 pm
cabinet will host its beijing is expected to consider implementing a new anti mass bill which simply bans the use of masks being worn at these unlawful assemblies are considered by the government not the strategy would be used by simply used to utilise through the emergency powers now the probation groups have already showed their support towards this particular act on this particular motion on friday is expected to hold that executive council meeting and will make an announcement shortly after. joe biden has described donald trump as desperate and defensive after the us president called his potential 2020 democratic rival stone cold crooked without offering any evidence trump again deny pressuring ukraine's president to investigate biden and his son details of a call between the 2 were made public after a whistleblower complained that prompted the democrats to launch an impeachment inquiry. well now from she had. house democrats announced on wednesday that they
8:08 pm
would subpoena the white house for documents related to their impeachment inquiry if they don't receive by friday they've also asked for documents from the state department am president trumps personal lawyer rudy giuliani but they warn that no one should think they can avoid cooperation through legal action challenging congress's authority for example so we are concerned that the white house will attempt to stonewall our discussion much as they have stonewalled other committees in the past. it's why i say the white house needs to understand that any action like that that forces us to litigate or have to consider litigation will be considered further evidence of obstruction of justice and of course that was an article of speech meant against nixon the implications for the white house are clear from the democrats don't think you can hold the impeachment process up in the courts if you don't cooperate with the inquiry will simply roll that in to potential articles of impeachment as obstruction of justice and we'll infer that
8:09 pm
the reason you're not complying is because what the whistleblower said initially was true now the white house donald trump once again attacked the whistleblower who alleged he was abusing the office of the presidency to undermine the 2020 lections in his interactions with the ukrainian president this country has to find out who that person was because that person is a spot in my opinion but later in a press conference with the finnish president mr trump said he would cooperate with house democrats in their inquiry however he grew irritated as he was asked exactly what he had been asking the ukrainians to do in the 1st place biden and his son are stone cold prophet and you know it is son walks out with millions of dollars the kid knows nothing you know it and so do we go ahead ask you quickly the question sir was what did you want president selenski to do about present my president biden and his son hunter. you talking to me yeah it was just a follow up of what i just asked is are you ready we have the president of finland
8:10 pm
ask him a question i have one form i just wanted to follow up on the one that i asked you which did you hear but if you want to hear me yes ask him a question i'm troubled presidential campaign released a new advert arguing that the impeachment process is simply the democrats attempting to undermine democracy because they can beat them at the ballot box it's nothing short of a coup and it must be stopped it's a message that does seem to be resonating with trump's base at least the campaign is reporting tens of thousands of new donors and huge sums of money pouring him she able to see out washington in mali the families of 25 soldiers killed by fighters linked to al qaeda are demanding information from the government protesters in the capital bamako say army commanders are withholding details about monday's attacks on 2 bases and the government is accused of failing to properly equip soldiers 60 soldiers remain missing. jordan has a high proportion of university graduates but many find it tough to get
8:11 pm
a job youth unemployment rate has risen to almost 40 percent unable to find work in their chosen field many of starting careers they never expected and chapelle reports from the capital. after a beer graduated from university she struggled to find a job she wanted before starting over and finding a new profession but i thought i would be for less than a lot for 7 years so i tried to get a job either in the public sector all of the private sector but there was nothing so i took a beauty trying pools in i took another course on business and launched my own beauty cell and you have to do something that will actually get you a job and state of traditional fields. her hometown of a short drive from the capital amman attracts tourists to see mosaics that are thousands of years old but tourism isn't enough to provide jobs in the area has the highest unemployment rate in the country which civil society organizations want reduced. the most we design course topics based on market research in each city

8:13 pm
economists say jordan's government and society as a whole needs to stop favoring some professions that's because the market is saturated and jobs aren't being found easily even for highly qualified graduates we have a generation and we think today we have very high unemployment among engineers medical doctors and pharmacists so why are we sending through an official policy more students to study these subjects knowingly in advance that. they won't find jobs so i think this is one major public policy flow that the government has to deal with immediately recent research by his firm showed that a 3rd of jordanian adults want to leave the country because they have no hope for their future that total has doubled since protests in modern and other cities 8 years ago against the rising cost of living and schapelle al-jazeera. a

government is being forced to deal with a not just nationwide protest since taking over the. riot police contain demonstrators in baghdad on wednesday 24 hours after a bonus and tear gas was fired at least 3 people died and hundreds of others were injured in baghdad as well as other cities high levels of corruption and unemployment are 2 main reasons for the anger and there's unrest over the recent dismissal of an army commander credited with defeats and i saw in mosul 2 years ago imran khan has more from baghdad. the protesters the bones of very simple they calling for the government to create more jobs more opportunities particularly for the poor in society also say that the government has failed to tackle corruption which is led to a lack of development will surprise the government is how quickly these protests spread not just here in baghdad but in nasiriyah i mean not just as well and that's
8:23 pm
taken the government by surprise they're actually a folding a government task force to look into how this took about now the events will choose they took place very early in the day in the afternoon when those a very small protest that was quickly dispersed by the security forces then there was a call on social media and then there was a much larger processed on. tuesday night and that's really when those big clashes happened between the protesters and the security forces they tried to come across the bridge from tucker a square tahrir square is just about half a kilometer that way and it looks like the protest movement is developing now that's going to be a concern for the government the big fear is is this if they protest movement becomes a nationwide movement and that will really concern the government not just for security reasons but for political reasons as well a lot of these people are young they've never voted before and certainly they'll be
8:24 pm
looking to their political leaders to try and give them something to give them some hope for the future they say that they have no hope for the future and that's why they're out in the streets. let's take a closer look at why iraqis are angry youth unemployment stands at 25 percent many protesters are university graduates who can't find a job and they blame corruption and when they just favoritism for many of iraq's problems transparency international ranks in iraq as the 12th most corrupt country in the world and since 2004 almost $450000000000.00 of public funds have disappeared according to official think is another persistent complaint is a poor quality of public services shortages of electricity and water and failing infrastructure continue to plague communities. known as helping us no one is supporting us we're giving our blood getting used is gone we have no results we want to internationalize the case because there are no results were poor we have
8:25 pm
nothing but our voice in ourselves well they have the weapons and the money and only i am an our problem is with the parliament it is them who distribute the hall among the thieves we do not want to parliamentary system we want to republican presidential system to lead us. today the iraqi people have lived 16 years under a parliamentary system that does not work all we have seen of it are wars blood fighting and looting the corrupt are passing their position to one another. let's introduce our panel now in baghdad. he is a political analyst and specialist on the modern history of iraq by skype in athens is judy it's nearing a political analyst on iraqi affairs who's watching the protests very closely and in ankara youssef. a middle east analyst thank you all for being on inside story thank you for joining us nationally in baghdad the problems facing iraqis have
8:26 pm
existed for years what exactly spock's this week's demonstrations no that is. things happened in this week that. rising in order that there's some agenda behind that but i thinks things have an especially when do you believe the general sidey and that shift their position from the high command. in iraq achieve and shifted to the another position that that's the things makes many many talks of the streets of iraq an order that i think many people of the streets shouting and begin to talking and this is a conspiracy against the iraqi people or they've got to see something and to and to use the things for the agenda that i think what's happening
8:27 pm
yesterday it's coming. because. increasingly the suffering people. you see a sort of a yes indeed many demonstrators let me just explain to our audience said that many demonstrators indeed have been holding posters of iraq's counterterrorism chief. saadi who is recent dismissal set off controversy with some people blaming it on iranian backed iraqi politicians so would you say there's a direct link between his dismissal and the demonstrations that we've seen in baghdad and elsewhere. this is one because i'm a thinks of the big no the people and the protesters youngs know they are raising money as long as the money demanded every every day all that greed is the rising value and today they did the jobs they they want to fight corruption the corrupted people they want to explicitly they want many things but i think the problem of
8:28 pm
outside the ship the moving the. moving the place or moving the problem ok order that i think many many many many many people use that they talking about conspiracy from the sort of agenda judith in athens i know you've been following the situation very closely those who've taken to the streets have denounced the house of problems that plagued their daily life including of course corruption unemployment and a lack of services not surprisingly for iraq there is no political faction between these damn behind these demonstrations there was no political faction that explicitly called 42 states protests how significant is that in your view and are these demonstrations spontaneous. yes it's the fact that normally when it is them stretches it you know there is
8:29 pm
a political power behind it and especially a lot of our southern last years and he's in your home mom he's very light months. i think there is a connection to the fact that there is so much land and news the games the testers and the fact that he was involved this time before all the demonstrations that he organized have been sort of peaceful even when the demonstrators broke into the endzone a couple of years ago the police hardly did anything about it and now there is the army on the streets against these young people meeting in the and they are 6 really shoot in with bullets and ok to shoot in the air the bullets now if we don't really have heard at least 200 to find something like 3 people who were killed adrift in the summer of 2018 there were similar nationwide protests in basra
8:30 pm
more precisely how has the situation not improved at all for iraqis since then i mean has have things got a more sway back east. the main problem in basra. has become a need for peace. but the main problem really is corruption and that's what most of these functions to get and the corruption has not to go because it's in milling in the system. but this equality is a militia are very much part of the garage and if you want to get a job in the governments and if there are thousands of people who are ready and waiting and waiting for a job in the government. the private sector is small if you are working for a joke like that you will have to say i spoke to some of the tell me that she had already been through our jobs that she's going to start off with the holidays. and
8:31 pm
that was $10000.00 now anything any question that is is is being met the culture that people are she may. have some kind of child or a piece. everything a little so. i think it's an enormous the system is in place nothing very much will change highly on nash me your thoughts on this issue of corruption transparency international has wronged iraq as the 12th most corrupt country in the world your in baghdad tell us how this corruption manifests itself in everyday life for iraqis. no the iraqi people know they talking every day every minute about the corrupted people who are ruling they are like now and they know. all the iraqi people confidence that. all the
8:32 pm
politicians or all the m.p.'s and all the government as they say they are corrupted people not the that they approve that because they say we spend. $3000000.00 in. 20 years. 11 years but nothing on the ground not going to see you know what serves no medicines no health every think its very worst very bad and go on to worse another that i think is the biggest of the boast a problem now in iraq is the corrupted because now the new generation is coming the generations they don't they don't follow and anything on the ground no job no the wheel of the economic as a stop no trades not likely culture no industry nothing they talking about to relieve all the rulers that will relieve all the government because they don't see anything about them then i think this is what's behind what what's happening and
8:33 pm
what the broadest sense is needed the feds the things they want to government to fight the corrupted the corruption situation but they think and one of them they they do use the corrupt people because now the iraqi government does sign many agreement with many many companies but. all that's money goes to the pockets of the corrupt people. let me bring into the conversation now what are your thoughts on what's happening right now in iraq it's significant isn't it to see these protests in baghdad because many had viewed the iraqi capital as being in a state of recovery since the fall and i still.
