3:05 am
get the united states interposed inside that area militarily is not the right answer we can continue to advocate the united nations to use diplomacy and assistance but anything more than that would only make a complicated situation worse in my mind it's neither the russians nor the turks that are the key to the solution the key to the solution is the international community getting involved in this and putting pressure both on the syrian regime and russia and turkey for a resolution that doesn't cause massive human loss of life or a humanitarian catastrophe they deem government forces say warlord soft us fighters have carried out and they are strike and then all were found refinery compound and so we are there that's near the chin is in border it's the 4th attack on the area in just 24 hours to various national oil company says no one was killed. the

sistani is friday's sermon delivered through his representative usually includes comments on political matters closely watched in streets and halls of government alike this week the cleric announced his no longer speak on politico. issues and he passed a cryptic message to iraq's politicians explaining why. if you read history you'll find that the problem is not with the people who have wisdom and intellect but with those who don't listen to those who have wisdom and intellect. clerics close to stanley say his silence is a show of dismay that iraq's politicians are not heeding his advice to start his reclusion comes at a critical time on thursday president barham saleh said he would rather resign than appoint the nominee for prime minister danny seen as representing the status quo.
3:19 am
what is the point of talking on political issues we are repeating the same points over and over again if they want to get advice they'll find in previous speeches. it's not the 1st time sistan has done this he stopped making political speeches temporarily in 201320162 put pressure on political leaders and. when he pointed response and record progress towards early elections. when he finds little response he resumed giving political price. to stunning may have also grown tired of his words being used to meet political ends to fossil political forces does take the steps houstonian interpret them according to their interest. not just has seen some of the worst violence since demonstrations began here 2 protesters have set up camp in the central square determined to stay until their demands are met they feel encouraged by cystitis support but unless there is a complete overhaul of the political system they doubt that early elections
3:20 am
a priority for psystar any will bring meaningful change. the choice is made by the politicians we want prime minister and a president to be elected by the people that grand ayatollah ali al assad has listed and boersma esteem is necessary for the nomination of a new prime minister and his decision to no longer comment on political developments is regarded as pressuring political parties to choose someone protesters can separate to silence also creates a leadership vacuum that some. fear could worsen the crisis from what i've told him al-jazeera not just. 3 of america's biggest rivals have started joint naval exercises near the gulf iran is hosting 4 days of warship drills with china and russia in the gulf of oman it's the entry point to the strait of hormuz through which much of the world's oil is actually transported iran denies involvement in recent attacks on gulf oil tankers. colombian riot police are coming under

$34.00 people in the last 20 years even if it's supposed to be a force opposition congressman who is supporting a bill in congress to replace the force says the issue goes beyond. the problem in colombia is that during 50 years of internal conflicts the polices always supposed the existence of an internal enemy that had to be confronted with violence we're living in a historic moment of change in colombia with the peace deal and our institutions need to understand that security forces need to change as well. that the countries riot police rarely violate protocols and actually needs to be reinforced many big things of their actions here beg to differ. sudan's transitional government has outlined plans to gradually lift steel

subsidies next year and increase wages for government employees from car to inhibit morgan explains how some of those economic reforms could prove controversial recently appointed council of ministers revealed the new government's 1st budget and that is for the year 2020 which had passed late on friday now according to the government there will be free education in public schools as well as free health care and public hospitals and there will be an increase in the pace of civil workers as well as cash transfers to those of low income but where the main focus of the government's budget for the year 2020 comes is on the fuel subsidies the government says that there will be gradual lifting of fuel subsidies according to the former government which was deposed in april following an uprising that was triggered by the economy last december the government pays up to 90 percent of the fuel costs which cost that the government more than $50000000.00 per week and the minister of finance and the president meant when he revealed some details of the
3:25 am
2020 budget said the change will be gradual so that people on the street get used to it. but the moment. we have put down this budget with a response to program the looks into subsidies that allows us to make achievements without letting those achievements go in vain through inflation we recognise the importance of having the fuel subsidies lifted gradually and not immediately now despite attempts by this government to assure the public there are concerns that the lifting of fuel subsidies will not go down well previous attempts by the previous government in 201-220-1320 extension 16 all lead to anti-government protests and the 1st rejection to this budget came from the forces of freedom and change coalition that is the coalition that has been leading at a government protest since december last year which led to the ousting of former president ahmed bashir and his government in april the coalition says that the by. it doesn't look into the suffering of the sudanese people which led them to take to
3:26 am
the streets demanding a better life to begin with the country's already facing an inflation of more than 60 percent and more than half of the country's $41000000.00 population live below the poverty line so there are concerns that the lifting of fuel subsidies will raise prices of commodities in the market despite an increase in the pace of civil workers and increased as well as an increase in the minimum wages but the government says that it needs to make those are short term reforms to try to improve the economy in the long run. kazakhstan has grounded all that air and folk or a 100 flights after a crash on friday left at least 12 people dead the jet came down near the airport shortly after taking off smashing through a wall before hitting a house the cause of the crash is still unclear alexia ryan of port. emergency crews calmed the wreckage of the airliner torn in half the main body of the becket barely recognizable its real resting in a field the flight had just taken off from airport bound for the capital nossel

3:29 am
elizabeth pearson is an astrophysicist and journalist specializing in space she says china will find it tough to catch up with countries trying to get to mars. in the last couple of decades china has come in in leaps and bounds so they've been very much concentrating on their human space flight they are trying to build a space station a permanent space station to rival the international space station within the next decade or so and they've also sent multiple very successful missions to the moon and that's a trend that they can plan on continuing so they definitely come a long way one of the things that people really learn from the apollo era and the space race in the 1960 s. is that if you try and compete directly both sides lose out so it's all about working together or at the very least doing collaborative complementary missions so rather than stepping on each other's toes pretty much everybody realizes that if they want to go to mars with a big mission specifically
3:30 am
a human mission then you really need to work with other nations obviously going to mars any kind of space mission is very expensive you're talking billions of dollars to the big missions so that is again another reason why international collaboration is so important because rather than becoming one nation trying to put $10000000000.00 it's 10 missions trying to find a $1000000000.00 which is a lot more manageable. this is ounces here and these are our top stories the un's warning of devastating consequences for civilians in syria as if the province nearly 250000 people have fled the area after 2 weeks of have bombardment by russian and syrian government forces there are fears even un funded humanitarian supplies will stop entering the region as soon as next month unless the fighting ends how the monopoly on us what to do these areas have become disaster areas we declare them disaster areas in the
