5:01 pm
indian police have controversially shot dead 4 men suspected of raping and killing a woman in hyderabad and the case that reignited nationwide protests over attacks on women the accused were taken to the crime scene as part of the investigation however the police say they tried to escape and then were shot. in hyderabad welcome the killings hundreds of people gathered at the crime scene and chanted long live the police the victim's family have also thanked the police. i'd like to thinking congratulate the telling gonna government police and all those who supported me my daughter's so now has. they have. this with me and. and no one even think of doing it. i'm still voting joins us live
5:02 pm
from new delhi so and so what are the police saying this hour. what the police essentially justify their act by saying that all 4 of the accused had actually confessed to the crime earlier off raping and murdering the girl and adding that the try to escape but in that attempt this snatched a weapon or one of the police officers and in fact the accused was the 1st person to fire the 1st shot in the police only responded they also said that these 4 accused book or hard core criminals however peter the national human rights commission of india said that they will be conducting their own inquiry into the events of early thursday to find out what actually unfolded that require the police men to kill of these 4 accused is this an end to the police inquiry into the original rape and murder.
5:03 pm
but it does seem so peter they would have to officially close the case close the file from what to the police commissioner there has said it's pretty clear that they think that these accused were the culprit so for them the case has ended however there is another case that's bigger now about the conduct of the police itself and i would actually say a bigger one is the did society is the public now sanctioning such red tribute of justice because we've seen massive support for police action not just in hazara bar but in other parts of the country as well some parliamentarians had earlier called for lynching of rebates some might argue gaited castration the sentiments are very strong because people are just frustrated because of the delays. delays in the judicial system here so the bigger question is that women rights activists and lawyers are asking is if that's really the way to go and if it is it does set a very very dangerous precedent because even in such horrific cases law proper legal procedures must be followed in our last news and so we were talking to one
5:04 pm
analyst and she was questioning why these 4 suspects were taken to the crime scene at 4 o'clock in the morning it was dark she was also questioning the narrative the verse in of events put by the police will there or are people saying the there should be a police inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the police inquiry as to the original rape. oh well you know what you're right about many activists are raising questions over how these events unfolded and as earlier mentioned that national human rights commission will be conducting an inquiry into what led the police to commit the crime but as far as the case of this of the reaping in the lowering of the girl is concerned our inquiry in that case another inquiry can only be honest for if the family of the victim asked for one and that doesn't seem to be the case because
5:05 pm
a family has approved of the police action it also remains to be seen how far the activists all the national human rights commission would go in finding out the facts all for how the police ended up killing these 4 q.'s because as only a mention this seems to be our brought up public sanction to what the police has done and that seems to be rather dangerous and shell thanks very much committed christian and is the secretary of the all india progressive women's association she says it's unlikely the police will continue the investigation into the original rape and murder in hyderabad. according to the police the closing of that book you know they have done so-called justice and the problem mike and the way i see it is that i think that this kind of lynch mob sentiment is not no longer just the public sentiment but actually is deflected as a tool of government by those who govern us at the center in delhi as well as and
5:06 pm
state including cutting down on other states because these are governments that are unable to prevent a repeat them from buying bunter like when she's testifying unable to prevent them from being pilloried in court and from being told by the judge that all we agree that you said no but you're not with too feeble and people know could mean i guess this kind of thing that unable to change unable to protect unable to prevent and now they want to have to accept this kind of lynch mob sentiment as justice and we have to place this in a larger matrix where the central government now does and the ruling party is in creating a lynch mob incident to happen encouraging people to say just kill people from especially from minority communities and vulnerable communities and just kill them if you suspect them of anything and that certainly if you come from a vulnerable community or you're a poor person it's very easy to suspect you and accuse you of anything without any
5:07 pm

5:17 pm
were disagreements on her. to slip further reductions this time round correspondent osama bin covering up opec meeting in vienna with a press conference is due to start any time the summer why is the opec meeting been so contentious this time. there's been a lot at stake here this time around they've been discussing further cuts and head off more oil production coming into the 1st quarter of 2020 they want a stable oil price all of these countries rely on various forms of oil revenues some more than others and have been continuing to cut production and have been losing volume to other non opec oil producers and there's a lot at stake here they want to cut production they want to keep their volumes as well as keeping the prices steady so that they can make enough profit to run their economies and what we heard on friday night was a lot of squabbling over who's going to cut how much or how much of the rest needs
5:18 pm
to be distributed among members and that's where a lot of contention came into play today we heard from prince abdullah these him being representing saudi arabia for the 1st time opec saying that he wants the markets and analysts to make sure that they take in their critical view of opec's cuts but again this is this is all that's been happening before there's nothing new to what is the big question here is how are they going to make sure that countries are going to comply with those quote is that they have been given to the nigerians the iraqis and others have not been complying some have been over complying so now we're hearing 500000 barrels are going to be cut the saudis are confident that this time around people are going to be more in compliance but that the russians are happy because their $750000.00 barrels have been taken off of one of the oil products that they can continue to export and will not be part of their crude
5:19 pm
exports as you said there's a news conference that we have been waiting for since the last 12 hours or so it is about to get underway any time soon and we'll get you the latest as soon as that begins what do you think we can expect to come out of the discussions. well as i said these discussions have been ongoing so it opec since 2017 has been trying to do 2 things one stabilize the oil market and to take out shale oil producers from the united states so bring down the oil price enough that they can manage their economies but make sure that it is not profitable for and major investments from it coming in from the united states so that those producers could put them out of business leave because of that shale oil production that united states right now is the biggest oil producer and that is something which is of concern to this cartel the word that they do not like and say that they are not a cartel and a bloc which wants to stabilize oil prices and as you can see the commotion behind
5:20 pm
me these delegates have started to come and this is something that they're going to express now and how did they work out who is going to cut how much and they're there these countries are going to comply this time around. thanks very much we'll come through that news conference kicks off but in the meantime thank you. will certainly be a state owned oil company shares will be the biggest public offering in the history we're talking about saudi aramco $25600000000.00 for $3000000000.00 shares will surpass the previous record set by chinese online giant alibaba back in 2014 but it still does fall short of saudi arabia's original target al jazeera is economics editor a bit ali has been following the story in the saudi government has refused to budge on the company's valuation. let's have a look at this 2016 mohammed bin sun man said you know i want to want to i want
5:21 pm
a company which is going to be worth 2 trillion dollars well he didn't get that he wanted to raise $100000000000.00 he didn't get that and he wanted international investors to buy into the company and he didn't get that but what you do have is a $1.00 trillion dollar company he raised 25600000000 is still going to be the biggest i.p.o. in history so there is some success there but the reason why international investors weren't interested in buying into the company because they didn't see the same value that the saudis did they thought the company was worth between 1 point one trillion to 1.5 trillion now the saudis wouldn't budge on that price the international investors want to budge on the price that they saw that this was a fair value and so they decided not to invest and so the saudis went out and said ok well we'll sell this company to. people in saudi arabia as well as the g.c.c. now they've got to make sure that this is not only only to save face but to make
5:22 pm
sure that those small investors who are coming on board weren't be underwater when this company floats later on in the month because you've got to remember that these small investors have taken out huge loans just to invest in the aramco. in algeria . of presidential elections for the next protest to say all 5 candidates in the december the 12th election have links to the former president abilities but if he was forced out by mass protests in april demonstrators are demanding a complete change in the political classes before any vote takes place. is a professor of political science and international relations at the castle university he says this election is a band-aid solution. all the candidates without any exceptions have been part of the vote for the cause. and obviously over the last 40 weeks or so algerians have been demonstrating to the to put to bring and the to the regime in place in algeria
5:23 pm
and obviously the election is simply a smokescreen for the consolation of principle to the cause there is no difference whatsoever i don't think there will be an opening of the political system what is happening at the moment is some sort of inertia it gives the impression that something is happening that so many multi-party system exists. in the presidential elections will take place next thursday and so on and so forth but in reality not ng changes it's a what's happening in algeria is police resettlement shows the current regime is going to stay and changing but for the car by an older person will not change the type and the nature of these retardants political system but exists over the last all that has been easy in existence over the last 6 decades is independence in 162 . greece is expelling libya's ambassador in athens after libya signed
5:24 pm
a maritime deal with turkey that sets a new boundaries in the eastern mediterranean sea which greece says is illegal greek relations with turkey a tense because of a territorial dispute about oil and gas drilling around the island of cyprus turkey has condemned greece's decision to expel the libyan ambassador john psaropoulos is in athens for the reason for greek displeasure at libya is that the libyan government had given the greek government assurances that it was not concluding such an agreement with turkey it was known that these talks were going on the greeks were concerned but can that be off the record discussions that the foreign ministers had had and that the ambassador had had with counterparts here was that this wasn't really a realistic prospect so this has taken the greek side by surprise and they believe with a certain amount of trickery on the libyan part. now the reason that the greeks are
5:25 pm
displeased is that the legal reason is that the turkish and libyan areas of sovereignty in the greek are you should not touch because greece lies between them greece says that according to the international law of the sea its southern e.g. an island should have a continental shelf that comes between the continental shelf of turkey and that of libya so that that is why the greek side says this agreement is legal it says that we condemn it without reservation it is the wrong violation of the law of the sea. well the green foreign minister was in egypt earlier this week as part of a stew in support in the region over this dispute it's all to do with the island of cyprus which has been divided of course since 1974 into the turkey speaking north and the greek cypriots of turkey has been drilling for oil and gas off the cypriot coast which has resulted in sanctions from the european union now the e.u. sister he is infringing on cypriot sovereignty while ankara maintains it doesn't
5:26 pm
recognize cyprus as a state meanwhile greece is pushing to lead a regional gas market cooperating with both egypt and cyprus. earlier we took we spoke to mr policies an analyst at the defense news website defense point dot g r he says turkey's lack of recognition of international maritime law does deepen this dispute well the un cross the united nations convention of the sea. specifically states that islands do have an exclusive economic zone and especially island states the way turkey sees it it chooses to interpret it to make up its own version of what it believes to be. the law of the sea version non-cooperative by any. international 4 or 4. and which islands do not have such exclusive economic zones they do not have a continental shelf. and this poses quite
5:27 pm
a few problems the whole state like cyprus does not have an economic zone who've economics. it's a surprising from this then sicily does not have one. star dia does not have one and maybe great britain does not have one. how turkey interprets this is beyond us besides which it is not a signatory of the of the sea convention. police in samoa have arrested an opponent of vaccinations for measles they do in time a c.c.s. been charged with incitement against a government order he said compulsory mass vaccination was the greatest crime ever committed against these people more than 20000 have been vaccinated in just 2 days medical teams and are going door to door trying to hold the brick which has killed at least 60 people in 2 months but as jessica washington report reports now from the capital many say the immunization campaign is too late. in this small village
