4:00 pm
during the weekends and tourists from around the world tended to the sounds in years for this to disintegrate in. the city. and i'm richelle carey this is the news hour live from doha coming up in the next 60 minutes meeting protesters demands president ever morale us announces he will call for new elections and bolivia. more violence and protests in iraq as people demand better public services and an end to corruption. in spanish voters head to the polls for the 4th general election and for years. i'm joined with the sports
4:01 pm
rugby world cup champions south africa and a victory parade through captaincy of hussein's hometown of course and that's a bit. later in the program. president says he will call for new elections after the organization of american states said it is a likely he secured enough votes in last month's election to win outright accusations that morales rigged election count to secure a 4th term widespread protest in bolivia on saturday police and several bolivian cities joined the demonstrators aren't outside the presidential palace were among those who left their posts rawest announced the move accusing police of staging a coup and he made the announcement and call for an immediate end to violence. i was examining those who have a new national election that will allow the believe in people to democratically elect. it's new representatives brothers and sisters in the media and the people
4:02 pm
who believe it after making this decision i want to call on everybody to reduce the tension we all have a duty to classify believe you're i'm calling for respect among families respect for property and respect for authority and for all social groups. cinnamon joins us live from santiago in neighboring chad this is what the protesters had wanted all along what was the turning point. yes this is really an about face for president abel morales he had that he has been. facing more and more violent protests nationwide the army had indicated just 48 hours of story 48 hours ago along with the police that they were not willing to go out and repress the people so that certainly must have weighed in very heavily but the organization of american states put out its preliminary audit and he had said all along that he would respect that audit although he had indicated that if
4:03 pm
the oas organization of american states did not believe that the that he had won fair and square in the 1st round then they would have a 2nd round of the opposition said they would not have that there would have to be absolutely new elections that's what the organization of american states said was absolutely necessary and it also called for a new electoral board a new transparent electoral board both things several more dollars has agreed to which it would rather surprising the opposition was now calling not only for new elections and a new electoral board but also for his resignation now that is that's likely to happen but this is likely to at least reduce the the increasing tension and violence in that country rachelle lucy as we've seen with many of the protests have been happening in other parts of the world sometimes the protesters least on paper get what they want but the protesters don't leave and till they know for sure what they have demanded is actually going to happen so is there any indication yet of
4:04 pm
how this might play out with the protests. well that's a very good point but in the case of bolivia the demands were very very clear and that was new elections a transparent and new electoral board and also international supervision of these elections so far it would seem that that president would on this is going to go along with that so while the streets may not return completely to calm this should reduce the level of violence and mobilization that we've seen all over the country now the big question is who will take part in that in that tool or that could be another bone of contention but we'll have to see in the next few hours exactly how that process will lay out. with c.n.n. with the latest for us to see it thank you at least 4 more people have been killed in violent protests across the government in iraq's capital clashes continue to baghdad on saturday night as demonstrators lit fires and threw petrol bombs they were met with tear gas and live ammunition for weeks now people have been demanding
4:05 pm
better public services and an end to corruption the government has issued a new statement promising reforms more on lot of go live to baghdad baghdad now it's back to our correspondent mohammed jim jim so what is it now mohamed that government officials are saying. so shell the office of president but home saga here has issued a statement just in the past half an hour or so and which essentially the top line is that there will not be any security solution to the demands of the peaceful protesters meaning that they cannot deal with demands of peaceful protesters with violence or or or through the security apparatus that's really been a bone of contention with the protesters they say that the security forces here have been cracking down on them security forces of course are saying that they are guarding you know government installations and that there is an area in the city to here square which is the epicenter of peaceful protests and if people want to protest they should go and protest there now also this statement went on to say
4:06 pm
that the executive and judicial authorities have been have begun legal action to prosecute those accused of corruption they say but also said that no live ammunition should be used by security forces at the site of protests and it also said that work has begun on a new election law to ensure quality in electoral competition that's kind of interesting because we've heard from the prime minister in the past few days that there are going to be electoral reforms that a law is going to be put forth and we've heard hints to that in the last few weeks as well but there's never really been any anything concrete when it comes to what exactly those reforms will be now another interesting development we've heard in the past hour is a southerner he's very popular shia cleric here and he's the head of the largest bloc in parliament now there had been a lot of reports yesterday that several factions in parliament had essentially agreed with the prime minister to back the prime minister it to make sure that the current government continues to exist and to potentially try to find a way to end the protests well everybody was wondering where the souther who has
4:07 pm
been back in the protesters this far would come down when it comes to this he has now issued a statement he put out a statement on twitter just about 2 hours ago in which he says that he is resolutely with the protesters and that he has not made any agreements to stand with the current government now beyond. and that i should also mention because you did mention in your intro to me the news that 4 protesters and both of them were killed in these clashes on saturday we've had a statement this been released today from amnesty international in which they are urging their up the authorities to immediately rein in security forces after protesters were killed on saturday they go on to say book that and bus what i have seen yet more bloody days of excessive force meted out against protesters and off the authorities must immediately order an end to this relentless unlawful use of lethal force or show ok mohammed champion with the latest there from baghdad mohammed thank you prominent opposition figure comes soca has been released in cambodia 2 years after he was charged with treason so it was the co-founder of the
4:08 pm
band cambodia national rescue party which was dissolved ahead of elections last year prime minister hun sen's ruling party won most of the seats the soca is free for now the charges against him they remain and he's banned from politics and can't leave the country another key opposition figure same writing names they arrived in malaysia on saturday he left cambodia 4 years ago after facing a prison sentence on defamation charges cambodian government says he is welcome but warns he has to face several legal cases both an raincy had been battling long time later and said he's been in power since 1985 as one of the world's longest serving prime ministers rights groups and political opponents say he's repeatedly stifled dissent in haiti has the developments now from bangkok. this would appear to be a tactical move by the government in cambodia on 2 fronts one is that we know sam rainsy the acting leader of the cambodian national rescue party arrived back in the
4:09 pm
region on saturday flying into kuala lumpur the malaysian capital still vowing to return from exile to cambodia to lead an uprising against the government this would appear to be a move by the government in cambodia to take the wind out of the sails of sam rainsy and to call into question the relevance of any plans returned by him the other thing is the european union has been investigating the decline in democracy and human rights in cambodia and is threatening to withdraw or cambodia's tariff free status for its goods that are exported to the european union it delivers its report to the government of cambodia on choose day one of the key demands of the e.u. is that kim should be released from house arrest and the charges against him should be dropped or seen one of those steps taken by the government he has been released from house arrest but still some severe restrictions remaining on him and the case
4:10 pm
against camps a car still stands. kemas the deputy director general of public affairs for the band opposition cambodian national rescue party she's also his daughter and she says she hopes his release is just the 1st step. it's been 2 years he's been detained in prison for the 1st year and it's he's been transferred home for a year and a has not been a trial date said yet the so-called investigation is still going on his lawyers have also requested the court to close the investigation and then drop the charges and their response today is not actually the court announcement today it's not exactly responding to the lawyers request it basically just lifted some of the restriction that was placed on him under house arrest instead of responding to whether or not they will close the investigation and drop the charges i hope that it is the 1st step one the 1st step of many steps that need to happen in order to
4:11 pm
restore what has happened for the last 2 years so i hope that the charge against him will be dropped and i hope that his political rise along with the political rise of my colleagues and myself will be reinstated and there would be a negotiation between the 2 parties to reinstate for example the space for. media rights space for civil society and reinstate a real opposition party back and again i hope that today is only the 1st of many steps. they've been protesting in hong kong for a 24th straight weekend. and one mall riot police trust and plain clothes arrest people suspected of having committed vandalism anger at security forces is running high after a student died on friday all while police were clearing a demonstration earlier in the week violence has also spilled out onto the streets with police making more arrests across the territory there's widespread public
4:12 pm
anger at the arrest of several opposition lawmakers on saturday sir clarke has more from hong kong. a couple of 100 people are gathering here in central hong kong individual to remember the 22 year old student who died last week after being involved in a protest when he fell from a copy of the 3rd floor of the 2nd floor suffered a brain injury and on friday i died of a cardiac arrest now this is off to a day of protests on sunday here in hong kong where 6 districts were targeted we saw some violent confrontations during these protests and the focus today on sunday was shopping malls and we had a number of the shopping centers damaged to yasser damaged and some barricades were set on 5 abbado's by taxes and the police did mike summer recess now also on sunday we saw the release of an interim report by the international panel into the ongoing investigations of these protests now and the international panel was critical of the watchdog it said unless the power to make
4:13 pm
a momentum assessment and it also questioned it's one of the sources not an ability to do its job now this comes after 5 months of protests and this week on monday we have another general strike up plans by this anti government. but who are head of the news hour including jordan decides not to renew a 25 year deal over special land access to look at the israeli farmers caught in the middle. there. are still former president leaves jail to find a polarized country that will galvanize. to let the conservatives are calling for counter protests. and in sport france a 16 year that drought the all that actually i. calling is underway in spain general election prime minister pedro sanchez has already cast his ballot in the country's 4th election in 4 years and has called for
4:14 pm
the latest vote after failing to rally enough support to form a coalition government over opinion polls suggest that it might not break the deadlock or tell me to standing by live for us in barcelona 1st though let's go to jonah halls in the spanish capital madrid so jonah as we said 4 elections in 4 years is this actually going to form a stable government of any crime. those claims got a difficulty with forming stable government that it shares with a number of other european union nations security after the economic crisis and after the use of very polarizing austerity that followed and the difficulty is that the old rules of sort of traditional politics no longer apply where countries would swap power between a big party and on the left and a big party on the right now you've got multiple parties on the left and on the right including both extremes and here in spain the hasn't been a majority government since 2011 now the socialists on the left are predicted once
4:15 pm
again this time to win the greatest share of the vote as they did back in april but not enough to form a majority so pedro sanchez the socialist leader. who failed to form a coalition of the left in april now says he wants to run a minority administration making sort of ad hoc deals with some of those other parties on a case by case basis the problem he'll have is that he'll need at least a tacit approval acquiescence of the people's party on the right the conservative party that other big traditional party who are thought to be resurgent in this election they in turn will be very worried about the resurgent far right vox party . who will be looking closely at the p.p. if they make any deal with the left so any which way you look at it the chances of a stable long term government coming out of this election and reduce remember. all right let's go now to thank you jonah let's go now to her to tell me who is in
4:16 pm
barcelona so obviously. the separatists have played a significant role in why it's been so difficult. to form any type of stable government how is that playing out in this election or is there any chance that the separatist movement is ever going to lose any steam. well actually that's what many people here will be looking at was the 1st results come out how well did those. separatist parties fare in these elections in total catalonia has $48.00 seats in the med in the congress in madrid now it's going to be a. you can have to look at how much sort of national traditional party is a socialist party of. p.p. party and how will fare and how much will these independent parties fare now things have a bit changed share in the sense that the anger has increased among many ever since
4:17 pm
those 9 separatist leaders where sentenced to jail a few weeks ago many people thought here that the sentencing was pretty harsh if you recall just in the days after that there were some pretty violent riots on the streets between police forces and separate and the separatist movement so certainly there is a will people will be looking at that many old people will also tell you that they don't feel that this issue will be solved any time soon nor will we ever comes to power was probably. said. with a minority government nor will they have the mandate or will be able to move this issue forward all right how to tell me what the latest and barcelona thank you. iran's president has announced a discovery of a new oil field which could boost the country's reserve by a 3rd the field was found in the southern cost on province he says it contains an

4:19 pm
supporters marched through the streets of gaza on saturday night as part of the commemorations and that was it despite a ban by hamas because hamas and fatah are bitter political rivals but it's interesting to note that the supporters who were on the streets in gaza on saturday were not affiliated to palestinian president mahmoud abbas they were linked to mohamed duck land mohamed dr john is a former leader of fatah who was expelled from the party and has been spending the last several years living in the united arab emirates but he has a lot of support here in gaza hamas a lot of his supporters to march through the streets on saturday because they believe that dunn is a rival to muffle us now we understand that groups have been making representation to hamas to try to allow about supporters to take part in the commemorations in the meantime this is all happening against the backdrop of the upcoming palestinian
4:20 pm
elections they were announced back in september by president abbas but nobody has yet any idea what date they're going to happen on or what the circumstances are going to be but we're already getting a sense of the kind of maneuvering that's going to be happening in gaza politically in the run up to those elections. after being released from prison brazil's former leader lula da silva has been rallying his supporters against the government which they are boston r.-o. he is condemning the right wing president's policies and is calling on left leaning parties to take back the presidency and the next election is about reports from los hometown of sauerbrun auto d'acampo. was received as a hero. in the state of help. if there is one place where the former labor union leader is loved it is here. i want to build this country with the same happiness that we built so that when we govern this country my dream isn't to solve my

problems today i'm a guy that doesn't have a job a president without a pynchon not even a television in my apartment my life is totally blocks the only thing i'm susan of is that i have more courage to fight them before on thursday the supreme court said convicted criminals should exhaust all their options to defend their case before going to prison this benefited new law and many others. but lula has not been absolved and still faces at least 7 other cases against him was in the last presidential election was already lost a lot of us are wards because of the car wash corruption investigation involves son was a member i don't know that you love the feel was out in spite of its legal troubles on the stage and many here believe that feeds the man to challenge the guy you want to not just presidency right. says he's the only one that can save brazil

4:23 pm
been questioned and that's why lula is requesting a retrial. brazil is polarized between those who love and want him back in the presidency. and those who are angry with the corruption that happened while he was in office. he is planning his political comeback he's already. the biggest political rival. sober not of the gamble brazil. for testers were out overnight in lebanon's capital with a musical approach the last. crowds packed they were streets in front of government buildings dancing to music from loudspeakers there have been anti-government protests for more than 3 weeks now they're demanding significant constitutional change and the economy is at the root of the crisis in lebanon and the political stalemate is threatening to cause further financial turmoil politicians have been struggling to form a new government since the resignation of prime minister saad hariri stephanie

4:27 pm
the main thing that people would talk about when we bring up yasser arafat's is his closeness to the people they would tell you he was modest he took care of his people's day to day life issues we've spoken to people who say he went to pay his school and says to them after their children were killed by the israelis in confrontations and we talked to other people who remember his. style of user ship they say he wasn't hesitant to use other methods of resistance when it comes to fighting israel which of course they refer to the 2nd uprising or intifada which he gave the go ahead for in the year 2000 when we speak to his aides who respected him they say although he would make the ultimate decision eventually he was keen on having due to the ration discussions and reaching a consensus consensus before and decision was made of course of the other hand
4:28 pm
there are other palestinians who saw him differently we spoke to some of them who were in the fields of transparency and they would say that although he had good tactics as it of illusionary he didn't have them when it came to faith filled he would say he didn't necessarily have the utmost respect for the rule of law and the just lifted counsel but still he is still remembered as an iconic figure and a symbol for the palestinian people aren't needed abraham live in ramallah need to thank you there are many yasser arafat was a hero of the palestinian uprising against the israeli occupation is one of the founders of the political faction fatah and fought with the organization against israel in the aim of liberating palestine control of the palestine liberation organization and with arafat as its leader he eventually signed the also accords with israeli prime minister yitzhak rabin in september 993 which created the promise of peace but 26 or 26 years later the still no resolution. into the israel
4:29 pm
palestine conflict and settlement expansion continues arafat died in 2004 from what was reported to be of month long illness but an al-jazeera investigation in 2012 and arafat was poisoned by radio active toxins is e-mail and as a former minister of justice in israel and joins us now from tel aviv thank you so much for your time so that moment in 1903 the oslo accords there obviously there are critics that would say it was flawed but it was there was an inflection point since then is it clear to you that the 2 state solution is dead what do you say. no it is not there is no alternative i mean there is no one state solution neither for the pre-stimulus and nor for israel both peoples deserve their own states and believe that to eventually do so will happen and not in 100 years from now but much less than that. yasser arafat as it was now said was an icon or
4:30 pm
revolution least and more than a state bill that it is for sure he made something which was unique and he will be remembered for that by bringing the palestinian issue today to the world knowledge high on the agenda a much more than before him and that was of course very important for the palestinian people for us as israelis his decision in 88 a national policy and council decision you know just it was very very important this was i believe the real milestone in which the palestinian leadership admitted it it's mistake by rejecting the partition u.n. resolution in 47 rather than having already event 2 states and preventing the
4:31 pm
war or $48.00 and there are a few cases of this war for the palestinians and also for the israelis but mainly for the palestinians and for the arab states if eventually in 88 you said ok 47 should be the basis and we are ready to accept un resolution 242 and to change our policy and that was the opening for the relations between the p.l.o. and the united states and later on when i began the process that was. the basis also a 4 hour. for our process which was distorted by extremists on both sides who were not ready for peace ok let me for a politician let me ask you this you said that the the 2 state solution isn't perhaps the idea of it isn't but are we further away from it then we
4:32 pm
were 15 years ago i don't think so i think it is the other way around in many ways the 2 state solution became a consensus both in palestine in israel and in the world it was not the case use a goal ok. the palestinians obviously are are more fragmented more divided than they were before and do you see any type of. do you see any type of pathway for there to be. a unifying leader that at least arafat was at one time is that is that necessary is that that type of figure called for. i believe the palestinian political unity is important not only for the palestinians but all also for israel i believe that for those who believe in peace the division in the palestinian camp
4:33 pm
is devastating and i hope that it would be possible but of course on the basis which we respect the decisions the duty made to inform of decisions of the palestinian leadership a civilian thank you so much for your insight we appreciate it joining us from tel aviv. time for weather now here's everton with the news of flooding in africa yeah that's right michel we could well see flooding in the north and the south of the continent this week at the moment we already have flooding in the middle of the continent this is a place called zone in the middle of the democratic republic of congo it's not a limerick this is pretty poor weather that we have seen here it's been in place since the middle of october around the worst flooding here for around 5 years actually so we are going to see further showers longer specifying causing those problems through the heart of africa right up tools a bit further towards the ethiopian hollers in those showers extend across west africa all the way across into liberia to sierra leone and beyond that he began

4:38 pm
a palestinian state with east jerusalem as its capital and he spoke that they'll be no compromise safeguarding islamic and christian holy sites in jerusalem despite increasing dangers and for some that he's referring to the israelis and bodies were out why we are where we are today a decision by the jordanians not to renew an easy access agreement for israeli farmers to land just at the foot of the hills behind me after 25 years it's all because of a breakdown in the relationship between jordan and israel. there may be a peace agreement between jordan and israel but it's under considerable strain. so these are some of the last israeli tourists to walk across the border without passports to visit jordanian sovereign territory that's been owned and farmed by jews for almost 100 years jordan is not renewing
4:39 pm
a 25 year deal that granted privileged access and a lot of us will lose some of our income that we could puts makes a living from these lands move got a deep emotional attachment to the area. israel got vital security cooperation along its longest land border when it signed the peace treaty in 1994 our viewers to see this valley become the valley of peace jordan's king hussein and his people were promised political and economic benefits but they've not materialized i think it's true that if there'd been progress on the palestinian issue it would have helped with a way to tional jordan i think jordan was also disappointed with the economic benefits that it hoped to gain from the peace treaty there was talk of one stage that we would have one airport in the south of and so forth jordan israel and israel decided that we didn't want to proceed with that then last year as farmers cultivated crops that take years to mature the u.s. recognized all of jerusalem as the capital of israel and jordan's economy continue
4:40 pm
to struggle everything combined to intensify jordanian public opinion against israel and these were all issues that king abdullah reflected on at sunday state opening of parliament. that's our national position on the palestinian cause a steadfast supporting our palestinian brethren to establish their independent state along the 4th of june 1967 lines with east jerusalem as its capital today i also announced the expiration of the peace treaty annex is on the outgoing mayor and backer and the imposition of a full sovereignty over every inch of those lines. perhaps the most important crop the fruits of peace has failed to take root here. now in the last couple of hours the jordanian government has said that those israeli farmers will be given continued access to this land until the end of the farming season which is next april as long as they apply for visas the israeli farmers will hope that between
4:41 pm
