1:00 pm
management on al jazeera. 0. hello there i'm the star and this is the news hour live from doha coming up in the next 60 minutes. saddam's former president omar al bashir is found guilty on charges of corruption the courtroom erupts in chaos. hundreds of soldiers have been killed in africa sahara region leaders are discussing how to boost security. and still no agreement at this year's u.n. climate change meeting we'll be live in madrid with all the latest. and then we are hard in with sports it's been another dramatic day at golf's president's cup as internationals hold their nerve to lead tiger's u.s.
1:01 pm
team by 2 points into the final day. now it's a guilty verdict in the corruption trial of sudan's former president omar al bashir in the capital khartoum for she was sentenced to 2 years in a case centered around suitcases found in his home filled with multiple currencies worth more than $130000000.00 as you can see that the courtroom erupted in chaos as that verdict was read but she continues to deny any wrongdoing and says much of the money was a gift from the saudi crown prince mohammed bin the she was overthrown back in april after months of demonstrations and this is just the 1st of several trials that he'll face for his near that he year rule well for more on this let's cross now to our correspondent have a morgan who's in the courtroom as we were seeing chaotic scenes in the court today now but she will spend 2 years in a rehabilitation center talked. what we've been hearing from the judge.
1:02 pm
the judge 1st of all pointed out the various charges against the former president which is illegal possession of foreign currency illicit financial gains and corruption now he also mentioned the actions that would be taken should he be found guilty he has been found guilty and his supporters and his defense team came out in protest chaos erupted in the courtroom and outside the courtroom but the fact that he's been sentenced to 3 years in a rehab edition facility is something that is not going to sit down well with the protesters who have been calling for justice even before he was ousted now they're saying that this is not the only or these are not the only charges that the former president should be facing there are church are just that he should be tried for such as work crimes and crimes in the west and crimes against humanity in the western region of darfur and the southern regions of blue nile and south kordofan so it's likely that this whole verdict of 2 years in a rehabilitation facility and not a prison is not going to sit down well with protesters who have been demanding for
1:03 pm
just as an accountability not just for the former president i'm going to show you before members of his ruling party members of his cabinet and government some of them who are right now in the sovereign council while he has also not appearing to be sitting very well with his supporters and we're seeing more thousands of them gather in the streets of khartoum and potentially across the country how are they responding to this verdict. they have called for a 1000000 man march are since before the verdict was issued just 2 weeks ago they said that they wanted people to come out and show support for the former ruling party which was disbanded and dismantled late november the end of november there's thing that this transitional government is taking political steps to try to raise its footprints to try to make sure that the country is a secular country that is something they are against and there is thing that the political process that the country is going through at the moment is not inclusive so they are calling for inclusive it's because the former ruling party which has
1:04 pm
been dismantled is also banned from participating in the current transitional period so his supporters with what has happened over the past few weeks as well as what has happened today are saying that this trial is a sham this is something we've also heard from his defense team when they came out there saying that the judge is politically motivated but his bias towards the forces of freedom and change coalition that is the coalition that has been leading protests and negotiated a power sharing agreement with the transitional military council that ousted former president i'm going to show you so a lot of accusations by the defense team against the judge protesters coming out in support of the former ruling party which has been dismantled and rejecting the verdict that has been issued against former president almost bashir even though he will not be facing prison sort of prison time like those who have been calling for his ousting and who have been saying that they want to see justice served have been calling for which is prison time for work crimes crimes against humanity in the western region of 4 and the southern regions of blue nile and south kordofan as well as crimes against many people who have had to face him or rather face his
1:05 pm
anger during his 30 year rule had been morgan there live for us in khartoum she'll be following all of the latest developments thank you hedda well as she was just saying while saturday's trial was about corruption and illegal possession of foreign funds and she also faces that listening of additional charges that remind you of what they are in 2009 the international criminal court charged him with 2 counts of war crimes and 5 counts of crime. against humanity that was for his role in the war in darfur which started in 2003 at least $300000.00 people died and another $3000000.00 were displaced a year later the same court in the hague brought 3 counts of genocide also for darfur and then in may this year after he was deposed saddam's public prosecutor charged him with inciting and participating in the killing of protesters activists say at least $100.00 people had been killed and then in november he and several of his aides were charged for plotting and carrying out the 1909 crew that actually
1:06 pm
brought him to power in the 1st place well let's dig into the saddle more with join us for now who is at the doha forum he's the deputy director for the horn of africa and a senior analyst for sudan at the international crisis group thank you for joining us again joining us so starting with that guilty verdict a 10 year sentence then reduced to 2 in a rehabilitation facility will this satisfy all bush's critics. and no i think the 2 years is a quite a slap in the face for a lot of the civil society groups who have both nationally and internationally who are for try to bring bashir to book for a lot of his crimes but i think it's key to remember that the government the transitional government led by of the law books has tried to essentially soft shoe this this this trial because it has such relevance to the political stability within the country which is find the balance between civilians and a civilian and military transitional government you know going that with the financial crimes 1st has allowed them to to to just front load and make sure that
1:07 pm
they don't create any of the more destabilizing ructions that would come from front loading some of the trials and. regarding the sheers activities in darfur and south for the fun of the nile as well as the even more recent and more visceral charges that are related to his his june that the june massacre of protesters in khartoum and journals you say it's a fine balance and as we've been reporting it faces these other charge. as to including against the protesters the actual protest is who pushed for this transition during that crackdown this year given that this came fast and you're talking about the order of the charges here and the fact that he hasn't yet been tried on human rights abuses is there a sense that real justice hasn't been done and he might escape accountability for other things. i think for the most part people will understand the sequencing but in the streets there's people who almost will understand the sequencing but in the streets there is a lot of consternation and concern particularly within darfur and south kordofan of
1:08 pm
denial that bashir is perhaps sliding a little bit away from way from justice and that really concerns a lot of the people that i've spoken to very recently from darfur and from nuba mountains in particular but. it's important to really get the sequencing right for the transitional government both you know. essentially has 2 very key constituencies to appease here why are the protesters who are on the streets who initiated this this this change in government in khartoum starting with the december protests and then on the other side there there is the military who still is no one half of government and also retains plenty of n.c.p. protesters within the sudanese armed forces so he's got to be very careful about satisfying both the 2 years in a rehabilitative facility is really quite a sop to to those who are his supporters and most sudanese will have definitely wanted to see him return to the much more rough confines of khobar prison which has
1:09 pm
been famous throughout the years rule as a place for the dissenting protesters and political opponents which is indeed where he felt then but despite all of that he still does have a supportive doesn't he and when i was saying the so-called 1000000 man march take place in khartoum how the former ruling party his ally is likely to take this could be thea accountant movement to this transition. yes i think i'm a 1000000 is is overstating it to some degree but it what is clear is that the n.c.p. mobilized to bring people in from the countryside to make quite a show of force in khartoum whichever way this trial was going to go they were already in khartoum before the verdict and so yes he still has his his supporters the n.c.p. of bashir still owns key levers of the economy and the government there's a lot of concern within the transitional government about a deep state which continues to own key institutions there was a law last month that came out that was agreed by both the military and the civilian side of the government that essentially neutered the n.c.p. to a degree but over 30 years as you can imagine the n.c.p.
1:10 pm
has had its polls you know dug deeply into the institutions of socially and governmentally of sudan and those are really hard to to have on unbind and to and to bring bring about the sort of tabula rasa situation that would. allow the transitional government to succeed in sudan well as we've been talking about there is this political transition process in place but a lot of the issues that triggered this transitional protest movement in the fast they still haven't gone away the economy and itself is getting west how is the transition going you're saying it's a very delicate balance but is it has it been successful so far. it's been only a few months so i think you know that that's a fine balance has been struck is a key is a key achievement of the of the transition itself both from doc and and on the on the civilian side and then on the military side they are assessed headed by humanity and. for the sudanese armed forces they have come to something but
1:11 pm
agreement and i think the military needs the civilians to be up front as part of this transition they recognize that in terms of the need for a civilian face removal of the states state sponsor of terrorism does eventually by the united states and also to secure any of the debt relief a budget support that's really required to bring sudan back on track but you're absolutely right that the transition occurred politically and it was delivered by both military and civilians jointly but the economy has continued to tank inflation has continued to rise cost of goods has continued to spike and basic commodities in khartoum and across the country and more broadly really continue to those prices the spike in prices continue to squeeze ordinary people very badly so there's the visceral side of this transition where people feel these squeezes and then there's the political time that simply required to deliver a transition is meant to uproot a regime that has been there for 3 decades china's one of the senior analyst for sudan at the international crisis group thank you for joining us and your analysis on out of there john. moving on to other news now and north korea says it has
1:12 pm
conducted another crucial test at its long range rocket facility state television released pictures of leader kim jong un at the soho launching station near the border with china it's the 2nd test at the site in just under a week the tests come ahead of a year end deadline that north korea has given the u.s. to drop its insistence on you know that children nuclearization now the taliban is claiming responsibility for an attack in afghanistan the defense ministry says 9 soldiers were killed on friday it happened in the car about district of new province several other attacks were also carried out there and the un mission in afghanistan says 10 civilians were killed in one of them. now india's main opposition congress party is holding a rally against the government over a controversial new citizenship in a law the adoption of that you know has led to protests across the country and creates a pos to citizenship for 6 minority religious groups from neighboring countries but
1:13 pm
it excludes muslims also how raman is covering those protests in new delhi and joins us live so how i see that you've got some crowds there with you and this is just one of many protests across the country. it's the start of the general protest such lee and now it has seen a peace that i would say tens of thousands of people arrived here at the rubble of a leader just some of the guys that will go on their way home of report day to day about how that actual gathering the progress to the polls today has been announced as a save india day by the joint opposition and civil society is that we've seen demonstrations in various states various principal cities across the country including new delhi of course but they're all opposing what is one part of 2 bills that have been elected and this is the system i've been to which of course allows those citizens.
1:14 pm
that want to become indian or india right now to prove that external nationality to be able to gain citizenship and that it's pretty great to the public and sometimes . you would also it's really power low with that which is about muslims being able to define and category they've been in this country since 1971 or before that that documentation is very controversial the politicians here know how divisive that is i believe that it goes against the secular constitution of india it's what india 44 against british rule back in 1947 they think the constitution is under threat really. spectating supreme court action against the law itself the opposition groups already told me here in new delhi that they're getting their legal counsel together to oppose this and to challenge this at the highest level but certainly public feeling has been expressed across the country on
1:15 pm
saturday said helen by my understanding this is a federal law so it's binding on all states right but some state is already saying that they're going to refuse to implement it so how is that likely to pass. well it is a very interesting scenario that some of the states such as carola in the south which is a very large christian community you have a job of course the state which borders pakistan has a very large state community of course over to the east of the country west bengal which borders about but that's also house makes bangladeshi that's what i make to the muslim community and it's in the west for example that the state leaders a chief minister among the banditry has announced on monday and tuesday there will be rallies in the in her state as well as rallies in iowa and did the job what it is that that really they are a problem telling you they are a lie to it's still
1:16 pm
a instigate the lord has been pacified call them and to what degree they actually act on this will be a state decision and they might lower the threshold for example of documentation the bike you require by certain individuals to prove who they are or for how long they'd be to india this is where the controversy of the grey area is how far would be each of the old state chief ministers the national government here in delhi where new delhi is making sure that they are either open their eyes they are free do adhere to the laws of the constant parliament it will be an interesting time and one where there will be a tussle over. what the constitution to india really is and so on they will be continuing to watch very closely so how ronna now for us in new delhi thank you sara. well there's plenty more ahead for you on this news hour including today is a solemn and said day. moving forward democrats push president donald trump's impeachment
1:17 pm

1:18 pm
killed on tuesday in an army base attack with a cross of courage the government has declared 3 days of mourning to commemorate what was the deadliest assault on a military in living memory an isolated group claimed responsibility for the attack on the right base in an artist close to the mali border. i have come here to express my feeling of revulsion on behalf of all my compatriots in the face of a war imposed on us by an enemy who has addressed us with nothing but aggression in a violent and treacherous manner this enemy took 71 of the nation's valorous children. well the government of mali has launched a national debate and at finding a solution to that increasing violence with groups in the sahara region mali has lost control of a large parts of its borders while its military stuff is repeated ambushes by armed groups hundreds of troops have been killed in that region in recent weeks despise a french led operation with regional militaries to counter those feiss while the
1:19 pm
cell is a region in western and central africa the military is a 5 countries in that region that's malim are 10 and begin a fast so in chad they all make up the sahara g 5 joint force and that aims to maintain regional control against those fighters well let's go live to on that address who is in mali is capital bamako for us on the talk us through the how the talks are going over there and what are they actually hoping to achieve. well basically the talks just got underway with the arrival of the president and members of his cabinet basically what they want to do is to bring order instructions remember it's not only. the price. or the metallics in the north of mali but malise problem there are also issues such as a need for violence that has killed hundreds of people over the past years especially the most recent of course is the violence between the dawn and the polis
1:20 pm
the dialogue aims to bring all these groups together and remember also that there are there are rebellion so there is rebellion in the north of the country the toric and the arabs of the post sieved injustices and by generalisations those issues are coming on the table for discussions i understand that they will be some concessions to bring these factions together but also on the other side several opposition figures are not attending this conference simply because they have issues regarding the conduct and the outcome of the last presidential election so these are all issues that they want to discuss we're not sure at the moment how much can be. because the armed groups are not here. well i meant to hear it out of there and with you we've been reporting on multiple attacks in that region over the last few months and it feels like the security situation there is the terrorists are. absolutely and experts are warning that in the next few weeks or months we see a similar attacks and in the region remember for the long time chad has not been
1:21 pm
attacked by these factions but over the last one month or so we've seen an uptick in violent activities violent attacks against charging forces who have seen raids inside cameroon we've seen deadly attacks inside nigeria we've also seen attacks in mali and then recently the last 2 days or 3 we've seen how more than 70. just like killed by violence in that group so nigeria may have had some kind of addressed by a little bit of it but not much because up to now the attacks are still continuing simply because according to one of or government official the bodies have been closed to all imports and movements have been restricted they believe that the closure of nigeria's border since august has helped to start degree of preventing arms and ammunitions coming into the country and of course extremist fighters from sneaking into the country so put a patrols are continuing there and it's not clear whether or not these countries to
1:22 pm
be able to deal with the problem however on the streets of mali go to the point that people are disgruntled that despite the presence of multinational forces the french the united nations in mali and other regions these attacks continue and people are really really angry and last week over 'd the past week we've seen kind of a demonstration by civil society groups inside the jury asking the french to check it's also in the region so these are all and all is anger building up in the region and we don't know why this is leading to another transfer those talks for us and thank you. britain's prime minister is adding the beginning of national healing over the bricks at divide and thursday's general election boris johnson led his ruling conservative party to its largest parliamentary majority since the 1980 s. jeremy coleman says he won't leave the opposition labor party in another election after his crushing defeat in leaders say they want clarity from the u.k.

1:25 pm
trust in him and i think he's going to go up there to thank them and promise that he won't repeat he won't betray the trust that they put in him and paul you say backs at the top of the left but we're also expecting a cabinet reshuffle i believe to be announced in the next few days. yeah there's a quite a tight timetable before christmas arrives we are expecting a minor cabinet reshuffle it be interesting to see who gets ousted who gets moved and who gets brought in recent polls generally are used to repay loyalty 'd so let's see who boris johnson favorites in his cabinet but the rest of the week is also involved with some very busy political timetabling on tuesday and peace will return here to westminster to begin the swearing in process and with so many new m.p.'s having to swear their allegiance to the green as tradition dictates that's going to take some time thursday it is going to be the official reopening of parliament the queen will reopen paul until the end the stand with such a state

1:28 pm
in the farmlands and around that area a lot of the rivers overflowed their banks this is one of the reasons we have seen so much flooding in this particular area now the good news is we're going to be seeing some dry conditions across this area but unfortunately if you look out here in the atlantic in the next coming days from saturday to sunday notice this area of low pressure that is really deepening across this region so we're going to get a break across the region here across the pyrenees on saturday but unfortunately as we go from saturday to sunday this area really deepens we're going to get a lot more rain across this area as well as a lot of gusty winds so flooding could be back on the schedule as we go towards monday. the weather sponsored by countdown a. week. from ancient embrace to come easy to its. age old philosophies and the root of all remain central to the world's oldest living civilization in the secondary to the series the big picture the chance the

1:31 pm
china trade war was about to intensify the 2 economic giants have now struck an interim deal the trumpet ministration has called off a new round of tariffs that would use a start on sunday and will instead reduce existing levies and return china has agreed to buy more american farm products and to ease rules for u.s. companies accessing its markets welcome trina you joins us now from new city in easton. china could train other sounds like an early christmas present for a chinese manufacturer. absolutely miss us it is a little bit we're here in the studio and this by is from all over the world come to buy goods that are made in chinese factories and many of those buyers have traditionally been from the united states so here we spoke to some people and this is good news that it's been sold as china by china rather as a win for the chinese people atlanta definitely needed a win after months of failed to go she ations and we have to keep in mind that
1:32 pm
china's also has a slowing economy at the moment and next year it's set to slow even more so there is quite a bit of relief and those who are particularly relieved are those who are dealing in goods that might have been affected by an ex are 15 percent in tariffs that the top administration had been planning to add before the phase one deal was announced so those are the people who are dealing in things like game consoles i phones as well as christmas decorations. a christmas wonderland in southeast china bias from all over the world come to this market city for the festive season decorations. but this year it's not married bright vendors here say the trade with the united states bad for business. business is good as it used to be there are more and more and fewer and fewer buyers i can barely make a living. but christmas has arrived early for these suppliers with chinese and u.s.
1:33 pm
negotiators announcing they will sign what's called a phase one deal soon delaying extra tariffs on $156000000000.00 worth of chinese products including christmas trees tinsel and a range of other goods however i don't want any agreement is only a temporary truce not an end to the trade war they might be. ridge a mild as small trade deal but in terms of the stuff both sides really want the us really want china to get rid of in this drug policy odd to create a leveling playground for foreign companies this is not going to happen anytime soon for many chinese manufacturers expected agreement is likely to be too little too light extra duties imposed earlier this year some as high as 25 percent have already forced many factories to scale down production and fire stuff these workers have been on edge since the spring will be gathered and with good reason the
1:34 pm
bicycle industry is one of the worst affected by increase in tariffs and this back to rely on american science to buy. later goods supplied bicycles to major u.s. retailers including wal-mart and says a rise in tires has caused sales to drop by about 20 percent we lost soul our fears for this person were still what we want to see how the person was going to do those here because this is the 1st year christmas was there for the purpose of. in order to keep going during difficult times this bicycle maker is relocating some production to cambodia and the asia back in many suppliers have already started moving away from the u.s. towards new markets in the middle east and africa. winter lasts a few months but chinese exporters expect the children lesions between beijing and washington to remain for many christmases to come so we've been talking to some
1:35 pm
people here who are getting their reaction of the day from of this deal and they've been telling us that this is a good thing well what most people seem to say is that it seems like the u.s. and china are getting back on track with their discussions in these trade negotiations but nobody seems to be under any illusion that this is close to the end there are still so many issues to cover issues at the heart of the trade war such as china's industrial subsidies the technology race between the 2 countries and this deal itself the phase one deal it's yet to be signed and there are still so many specifics that we don't know yet so people who have already started deciding that they want to focus on other markets find new customers in other places outside the u.s. as well as even relocate outside of china to avoid those american tarps of all those plans are still very much in place so it seems that people have been given hope from this deal nobody is quite holding their breath. for us there thank you
1:36 pm
katrina well analysts are saying that the deal falls well short of what donald trump wanted when the dispute began 2 years ago alan fischer is in washington d.c. and he explains why the president's administration still sees this as a victory. the white house says that this is a significant and important agreement donald trump himself says it's a phenomenal deal they've been talking about this for a very long time you remember it was back at the beginning of last year that donald trump said that trade wars are good and easy too when there have been discussions which came almost came to a deal but then fell away no the united states says it has a 9 chapter 1st stage agreement with the chinese that covers important issues such as tech transfer intellectual property theft opening up china's financial income see markets to outsiders namely the united states and also the sale of cultural projects donald trump sees that it's very important farmers have struggled
1:37 pm
a lot because of the targets that were imposed but he sees the farming community of the center of the united states as very much his base his heartland and so as we approach an election year he is very keen to address their concerns the most important thing this deal deals with is the targets that were due to be imposed on sunday they know essentially go away but there are still tired of. chinese goods coming into the united states about 25 percent on $250000000000.00 worth of goods and 7.5 percent or $120000000000.00 worth of goods those type of will start to come off as china starts to meets the requirements that they have agreed to. now u.s. house panel has recommended the impeachment of president on electronic it's another
1:38 pm
crucial step in the process that's divided congress and the nation the full house of representatives says expected to vote in favor of impeachment at some point next week white house correspondent candy hocket reports from washington d.c. . another ford visit to the white house over shout. by domestic politics as the president of paraquat i sat and comfortably in the oval office u.s. president donald trump railed against the democrats push to impeach him in congress for his dealings with ukraine's president it's a witch on it's a sham it's a hoax nothing was done wrong 0 was done wrong it's a scam it's something that shouldn't be allowed and it's a very bad thing for a country and you are trivializing impeachment and i tell you what someday there will be a democrat president and it will be a republican house and i suspect they're going to remember that objection the committee is adjourned. but democrats argue trumpet be used as presidential powers
1:39 pm
