home after he was. found suitcases containing around $130000000.00 but she said much of the money was a gift from the saudi crown prince muhammad bin son man was during months of protests demanding the end of his think 2 years in power demonstrators also called for justice and accountability for what they say is the sheerest many crimes many think the brady. bill to show that the legal system has not changed what about the protesters who have been killed in demonstrations against him for years what about those who have been sentenced to death and to prison for lesser crimes. in contrast hundreds showed their support for the former president and his now dismantled party. supporters chanted against the 4 month old transitional government accusing leaders of failing to be inclusive and leading the country into what the view as chaos sat is a verdict is in the end of former president bashir is legal problems while in
2:03 am
prison he was charged with inciting and participating in the killing of protesters during the uprising against his government which started a year ago and just days before the verdict he was charged over his role in the 1089 coup that brought him to power all that's happening while many continue to call for accountability for other crimes they feel hold greater importance. fled from the was some region of darfur 15 years ago and came to the capital he is one of more than 2000000 displaced in the war that the u.n. says 300000 sudanese and which the international criminal courts categorizes as genocide. but gave the killings for the rapes in darfur and the forced displacement i've witnessed villages being burned women being raped by militia men with my own where is the justice for all that many here say they waited too long to see justice served they also say that
2:04 am
the fact bashir has been tall gives them hope that it won't be too long before his health to account for his other alleged crimes he will morning on to 0. on the park is a spokeswoman for the city's professional association which allowed the protests against omar al bashir he says the ruling brings justice for those who fought for change. this verdict is a very important step in your lives and one of the cornerstones of their a sudanese revolution freedom peace and justice it's a step further towards justice because. it sort of defies the concept of accountability and that the suit is not going to need any of the crimes that he has committed if it's sort of the fight that this is rather than revenge more of. the defying the concept that justice is is should be served and this this verdict
2:05 am
is very important because it transformed bashir from being near a legit suspect into a convict he's now will convict of a crime. that's only one in a series of many crimes that he's yet to be tried for that include genocide that the many many a series of crimes that he has committed since the coup of $89.00 the people that supported with course are not going to be happy with the because at the end of the day what they say is that what the they are they are they're up against the people of sudan who have overthrown and the people that are say that it's to listen it's it's just a step in the right direction it's just step in the direction towards that i'm going to the more major crime in fact he is cynthia to be sentenced or you have to be tried for
2:06 am
a series of crimes that. have already being questioned for including the cool baby 9 of them only. survey is a senior policy analyst for africa in the middle east at the heritage foundation that's a conservative u.s. think tank says many feel the verdict and sentence don't go far enough. i think frankly this verdict is a bit of a sideshow it hasn't satisfied anyone but a key demand of the protesters and forces for freedom and change was accountability for this regime and they didn't mean accountability for corruption or possessing foreign currency what they really meant was accountability for the many crimes that the bashir regime has perpetrated over the decades in power so some of the people particularly the security of weeds who participated in some of those crimes are still in power they're still on the sovereignty council that runs this country so that's where it's going to get very difficult to take we for the civilian components of this government they're really caught between a rock and
2:07 am
a hard place not intact and i think the security leaks so thoroughly that they tend to launch a coup of their own or they precipitate some sort of backlash and also satisfying the constituency that brought them to power. anger over a controversial citizenship law has brought thousands of people out onto the streets across india against minorities from nearby countries a fast track to indian says citizenship but does not include muslims so that is triggered anger in west bengal or protesters set fire to railways trains and police stations the state is one of 5 that are refusing to employment the law and there are also protests and moon by by people from the northeastern awesome state they're also against the law before a different reason they fear it will lead to an influx of foreigners putting their ethnic and cultural identity under threat meanwhile in the capital new delhi exams have been canceled in university where students clashed with police during a demonstration on friday so raman has more. they

they citizenship and says the citizenship bill goes against india's secular constitution. the 1st time in the history of india that a religious test has been applied the law is on the face of it pretty unconstitutional and what we're seeing is the kind of undoing of this rather grand project that marilyn gandhi had sort of becoming foundation that they had laid for a secular country that is being systematically undone by the modi unshockable. opposition to the law is causing anger in some as well and as many natives feel they would be numbered due to fresh influx of people from bangladesh and it's an issue of course has led to a lot of violence in the 1980 s. and many fear are with piece of that in the months to come you see the basis for india as opposed to a place like pakistan was always a linguistic identity it was almost held together the way europe was held together it was never a religion and so the people of us from have
2:14 am
a complaints about influx of people but what the b j p has done is they've made a pause for the hindus to gain citizenship and for them to stay on but to exclude the muslims and to render them state and so the people of the summer objecting in a wall adjournment way because their identity is a linguistic eyes and it is night and just based in region not religion. on the news hour including this i want you to trust that you have placed us. travels to northern england to thank former labor voters for helping the conservative security majority. way through southern mexico's pristine jungle could be the rail by local residents. magic made it a good day for liverpool.

2:17 am
how to treat it as you are a force of the gesture that and the country will expect that this meeting will improve the situation room but for now it's not clear if the president's assurances are enough to convince everyone to embrace peace. there is anger and frustration on the streets in reaction to the ongoing violence in the region despite the presence of international troops. it's not that we are obsessed about their departure what we want is the change of tact and policy there's so much killing so many orphans and widows anough is enough despite the presence of international forces attacks continue. playing here if used to entrench new clothing is enough if we say no in that case. many have described the national dialogue as an important step but just don't clear if you do lead to peace and reconciliation in
2:18 am
a divided nation. al-jazeera by michael. are growing fears international efforts to fight climate change are faltering as the annual u.n. climate conference drags on without an agreement the cost $25.00 talks a majority were supposed to end on friday but negotiators have failed to agree on major points there's been deadlock over emissions targets and how much money poor countries should receive to cope with climate change observers say the latest draft statement lacks the kind of commitments needed to inject fresh momentum into the faltering paris agreement i think it's. profoundly. the outcome the outcome that has been put forward by the chilean presidency is disgraceful it's completely unacceptable i don't know why they're afraid to stand up to. the world who are destroying the amazon and the donald trumps of the world that are pulling out of paris what is happening here is mind boggling and absolutely
2:19 am
unprecedented on the box then. divergence from these across the board this is set for a collapse unless we fix it in the next few hours our environment or in the carcass at the conference and explains why n.g.o.s were not happy with the draft text that delegates are working on. well when you get to this point of the conference after 2 weeks and they go see asians is all about wording and vocabulary sure applies this time right now remember this conference is all about nations coming here and being prepared to in homes their ambitions sharing and willing to enhance their ambitions for next year's conference in glasgow when the parent's agreement really kicks in so last night's there was a draft text issued it wasn't perceived to be strong enough it was felt that the united states and brazil in japan had watered it down too much so they go chasing teams were sent back to the drawing board they worked at it all night in another text it was produce 8 o'clock this morning but again it wasn't enough because it
2:20 am
only called for nations to offer to in holland's commitments to reduce carbon emissions as opposed to calling for them to reduce carbon emissions this is a very small issue semantics but that has enraged the ngos is they've said it's completely unfair it's unjust it's immoral it's pouring petrol on the fire kevin trenberth as a senior scientist at the national center for atmospheric research and joins us via skype from auckland thank you so much for your time and are you surprised at this conference seems to be going so poorly right now. not really no especially with the role that he us is playing but also brazil australia and from the from what you just said maybe japan as well and you know you have to remember that this is a problem which is really very difficult it relates very much to what is called the tragedy of the commons and so it's in everyone's sort of best interest to exploit the environment and if you don't do that you lose advantage to everyone else and so
2:21 am
it requires real leadership and i think it requires real leadership from these countries especially china and the united states so let's talk about the fact that clearly the the u.s. stance on climate change is certainly different under the trump administration than it was under they obama administration is that what you're saying were you think we're seeing the effects right now yes so the paris agreement with president obama was a pretty remarkable agreement it was unanimous and at the same time it didn't have any power attached to it which indicates the the weakness of the u.n. as a whole and i really think the leadership or to come from will like the g. 7 of the g. 20 if we're going to involve brazil in order to properly address this problem ok so . any type of agreement being reached at this particular conference
2:22 am
any type of agreement of meaning of substance more than just words it seems like everyone is really far apart right now yes i don't expect very much it will be people will say oh yes we have worked out on something and here it is but i don't think don't think it's going to amount to very much by the sound of it. the think that there is an appropriate sense of urgency about what this actually is about the emergency of climate change. no i mean scientists we've been saying this for over 20 years and finally it's been getting some attention internationally especially through granted but. it's. you know this is an excellence exist central threat as we go further into the future with regard to you know water and food and so on and many people just evidently don't appreciate that or the effort that's going to be required to address it because of the tremendous
2:23 am
infrastructure that's already in place and the vested interests that are in place opposing any kind of movement in that direction kevin trenberth joining us joining us from auckland kevin thank you very much you know most welcome. supporters of one of the most powerful iranian backed militia groups have rallied in baghdad after the u.s. imposed sanctions on one of its leaders as flag was burned by members of. as well as at the president on israel's prime minister and saudi arabia's king sama washington slapped sanctions on. for allegedly killing demonstrators the top administration is ramping up economic pressure on iran as it tries to counter its influence in the middle east why just prime minister says u.s. sanctions on iran violate international law speaking at the forum here in qatar a tear mohammed says they've led to malaysia losing access to the iranian market washington re-impose sanctions on tehran after withdrawing from the 2015 nuclear

2:25 am
nuclear weapons and not just to this region but for people around the world we think there's a terrific opportunity for the iranian people we'd love nothing more to stand to see a real agreement that creates regional stability and peace and when they're ready you will take off the sanctions. heavy fighting has been raging against libya's capital over the past 24 hours while our forces are paddling armed groups allied with the internationally recognized government which is based in the capital on thursday helped are called on his forces to advance towards the center of tripoli and what he called a final battle for the contested city libya's foreign minister says his government will protect its citizens from have to our forces have to move how we're. still trying to accelerate the steps to invade tripoli our troops supporting the government of national accord will never enable him to do so we are firm on the ground and the main objective is to protect the civilians tripoli with its 3000000

discover death to many places around italy there is a serious problem of the lack of political representation is a big problem which at a moment we cannot resolve. is stackpole to counter the rise of the far right that has appealed to lot up to 3 to the most so their reason part of the telly that is against racism and discrimination and fascism we should all be. there is a way taking europe i fear it being here that we are starting to do something about it and avoid new walls coming up on the. most of the people here are left wing voters who somehow feel let down by the traditional leftist parties this symbol of this movement is a sardine and it came after the founders called the italian the squares of the country like sardines. and the symbol read like wildfire. first response was this but perhaps surprised by the rapid success of the movement

that have just given porous johnson and his majority labor still does well in liberal minded metropolitan areas but say it's paid the price for alienating more socially conservative bricks that voters outside of the big cities. labor activists canvassing in such places before the election fed back grim reports the party's model position on bricks it was one complaint but perhaps a bigger one was a leader jeremy corbyn they didn't think he shared their values wasn't patry or sick enough was too city focused in those states that we've lost it's about listening to people what was it and i think it wasn't just a long history of maybe 40 years of neglect and them saying to politicians you never listen to us i mean of allowed our communities to be run down in this way the conservatives now have to figure out what to do with their new voters because it's not a natural alliance the conservatives have traditionally been the policy of the landed

2:42 am
