7:48 pm
you don't look for a future in the country split up it was. the death of a. home to bed. one on 18th week's time. on. iraq's parliament is set to discuss how to stop days of anti-government protests that have killed at least 93 people.
7:49 pm
also coming up more protests in hong kong after a night of violence forces the city to shut down its rail services. the u.s. democrats subpoena the white house for documents relating to their impeachment inquiry but the president says he won't cooperate and. has to vote in its 2nd election since the revolution but the winner faces a tough challenge. but we begin in iraq where at least $93.00 people have been killed in 5 days of anti-government protests there's widespread anger against corruption and a lack of basic services including clean water and access to education meanwhile the government has lifted a curfew in baghdad and parliament's expected to address the crisis shortly well for more on this let's bring in algiers imran khan. parliaments to just start
7:50 pm
how likely is it that they will be able to come up with any kind of solution. well firstly the question i think should be is how likely are they going to be able to meet the meeting should have got under way the emergency session just about 3 or 4 minutes ago what we're hearing from parliament is a number of and he's haven't actually shown up yet whether they will show up or not remains to be seen then he should be a certain number of m.p.'s show up in the parliament to be able to debate these measures that the government wants to be discussed to try and appease well the protest is one that hasn't happened yet whether it happens in the coming hours we don't know 2 of the major political blocs have actually said they're not going to come to that meeting one of them is led supported by a very influential shiite cleric a another one is a very influential politician. in a j feet but it has been very much a 24 hours of politicking we've seen the religious parties and the politicians take
7:51 pm
this protest movement very very seriously let's take a look at the developments that happened over the last 24 hours 7. protesters take cover under a bridge in central baghdad as gunshots ring out scenes like these have led to strong political reaction religious leaders and politicians taking the protest movement seriously but. the speaker of the parliament mohamed hold lucy is now publicly backing the movement. well you must pay tribute to all the young heroes whose weapons were their words to convey their message to all the institutions of the iraqi state for the need to proceed with the real reform and the need to pay attention to the people's livelihood influential shia cleric worked out also that also issued a statement saying that the government should be dissolved and new elections held the iraqi prime minister. appealed for calm but his words are seemingly having little effect that have been made promises by the prime minister are to fool the
7:52 pm
people and they are firing live gunshots silence this. as a peaceful protest they set up these barricades and the sniper sitting right there since last night grand ayatollah ali al sistani issued a letter which was read out by his representative. now and that we hope that the voices of reason and logic can prevail for the best interests of the country all the officials have the responsibility to make the right decisions to move forward everyone should be aware of the danger i think cecille violence before the student . the government says it's listening to approaches his demands and will hold an emergency session on saturday one of the main political books also issued a statement saying the government must implement sweeping reforms within 10 days other political blocks of boycotts at the problem and recession saying it doesn't have an agenda it can implement. a crisis.
7:53 pm
the age of the protesters has surprised many in iraq but with a young unemployed generation it's perhaps unsurprising that frustration has turned to anger and anger and violence the trend seems to be that the protests are intensifying and and certainly they will they will continue i think one question is whether they are brain celebrations or professions coming up might have some effect on breaking the momentum but certainly the there is a lot of momentum behind these protests. in baghdad there are checkpoints every few 100 meters and mobile patrols drive through the streets tension on the streets remains. on the protests own the curfew has been lifted what do we expect to happen next is even possible to say. well if the polish stays anything to go by what's going to happen is the protesters will start gathering in the streets
7:54 pm
around risk way in baghdad and in other cities in the south and they'll try and march on in baghdad into tucker square in the other cities towards government buildings and then what will see is the iraqi security forces try to push them back and that's really the pattern that's been followed over the last 5 days all of that politicking hasn't really had an effect on the protesters in fact it may well of had a negative effect on the protesters because they say it's not just this government that needs to be replaced the full comes from not just this government previous governments as well and it's actually the system of governance within the country that seems to be a larger problem these are structural problems say the protesters that need to be addressed real reform needs to be implemented now that's not to happen overnight it may not even happen in the next few months so what this means for the protest movement is very unclear but if like we've seen over the last 4 days 5 days we
7:55 pm
are expecting to see scenes of violence and clashes with the security forces against the protesters once again emraan come on. more protests are being held in hong kong on saturday but are smaller than usual hundreds of people demonstrating against a ban on face must despite them being counseled by its organizers it was called off to hong kong's rail network was closed because of what authorities called malicious of vandalism on friday metro stations were set on fire during rallies against the mass bambos him by chief executive carrie lee. has more from hong kong. despite a late message going out by protesters on saturday to be events of the day had been canceled hundreds of people still gathered in causeway bay that grew into thousands and this is a march that's going toward the one china area now it's very interesting because the protest movement they said that they wanted to cancel the event to save up for on sunday because they say there's going to be a very big day on sunday you know as this is transpiring there was
7:56 pm
a video message released from terry lane the chief executive of home and was using what she said she called wiod tears on friday the violence carried out by writers on friday as a justification for the mass ban that she put into place photobucket didn't how. ling held their rights as extreme acts made hong kong into a dark day last night it is made hong kong paralyzed everyone is worried anxious and even scant the hong kong government has the greatest a temptation to suppress violence i appeal to everyone to support the government to stop violence in a legal way. obviously as you can see in the faces of these marchers today they're defying that ban and probably saw more of that expecting much more of that on sunday because the multiple events were planned and that's why the organizers initially said they wanted everyone to stay home and rest up for a big day on sunday. u.s. house democrats have subpoenaed the white house for documents relating to the impeachment kwara and the president donald trump says he won't cooperate until the
