4:02 pm
buried on tuesday while amid the funeral proceedings u.s. president donald trump has warned iraq that he'll impose heavy sanctions if it expels american troops the rocks parliament voted in favor of removing foreign forces and retaliation for the u.s. strike that killed sunday money last week me a baghdad airport fall out from the assassination is spreading through the middle east iran is vowing to hit back and has suspended its commitments on the 2050 nuclear do and nato leaders they do together in the coming hours for an emergency meeting to discuss the situation we have a team of correspondents covering the story shortly will go to some of the job in baghdad but 1st let's bring in dorset jabari in ted and also we have been looking at pictures of huge crowds around the country and we're hearing that the funeral procession has now ended.
4:03 pm
yes the body of the assassinated general hossam solomon he finally reached freedom square in downtown tehran it made its way from tehran university just over 6 hours a road to give you an idea of how large the crowds are the body procession moved from tehran university which is near revolution square in tehran towards freedom square it's about a 5 and a half kilometer journey and this journey took over 6 hours to finish and people mourners that have come out of just finished saying their final farewells to the assassinated general his body is now being taken to the holy city of. tehran and we believe there will be a number of other ceremonies going on there later this evening and then finally his body will be flown to his hometown of care mom in central iran where he will be buried on tuesday and meanwhile door so we've had an assembly of experts. telling military reserves to be on standby as they consider their next.
4:04 pm
yes this is a very strong condemnation of the assassination the statements been issued by the assembly of experts now this is a governing body that is tasked with selecting the next supreme leader or dismissing any supreme leader that they deem unfit but for them to issue such a strongly worded political statement talking about the islamic use need to be on alert to answer the call of their commander in chief that is the supreme leader it's very very telling of how things will unfold in the coming days and weeks the statement also state says that silence is not a response it will show weakness so iran will have an answer and that so the money's def is going to be the result of the united states troops leaving the middle east that is the only thing that will satisfy the iranians at this point we've also been hearing from
4:05 pm
a senior national advisor to the supreme leader. has spoken at the funeral services this morning he said that the united states has made a grave mistake and that the assassination of us until the money means the end of u.s. forces presence in the middle east if the united states doesn't understand that then they don't leave that it means they will have another vietnam on their hands in this region also thank you for the finale. with all the latest live let's bring in a sama been job now he's live for us in baghdad and also talking about the iranian authorities wanting the expulsion of all american forces from the region and that's something that iraq's parliament and kid take a prime minister are also calling for osama. yes elizabeth there is a and to us sentiment which has been spiking since the assassination of course until about me and we met the hundreds you saw in the last 24 hours iraq's parliament coming out with that quote although it is
4:06 pm
a non-binding agreement this morning we've heard from the spokesman for the military spokesman rather for the prime minister who is also the commander in chief of the iraqi armed forces that a mechanism is now being put into place to make sure that this resolution by the parliament is in acted into a law what will this mean practically it is going to be a difficult process and would be easier said than done because it is not just a 2014 request by the iraqi government to the united nations and other international powers to help them fight there are individual agreements with every country including the united states especially framework agreement exists and it is going to take months and months to a year even after if they decide that it is they want the end of u.s. forces in iraq and again you've seen the statements coming out of washington as well president trump saying that he will punish anyone who thinks on those terms will face sanction and pay billions of dollars so it is going to be a tough sport that iraq's government is going to find itself in and immediately
4:07 pm
what it needs to do is find a permanent government so that era of this interim government can in a tough spot once again for the iraqi government. or how have we had any reaction to president trump saying that he's going to sanction them they'll have to pay for the bases the americans set up there. were officially nobody has reacted so far and but we've been hearing from various commanders of multiple groups who are part of the popular mobilization forces the group of militias which are aligned together which come under the iraqi defense ministry many have said that even if the u.s. forces voluntarily leave they will have to face the consequences. as of killing who they call martyrs there has been calls for revenge you heard from. who leads one of the largest political blocs in parliament saying that the response by the by the
4:08 pm
parliament was weak there should have been a more firm response the embassy of the united states should be shut down he's calling for groups inside and outside iraq to form battalions to face the days coming ahead he wants to boycott the u.s. products so there is a lot of anger bubbling below the surface about what the united states did but again it is worth noting that even during that parliament session when it did vote against u.s. forces none of the sunni m.p.'s or kurdish m.p.'s were there so it does show that iraq remains divided on this issue because all of these forces who are on x. sectarian and ethnic lines divided with each other they have to agree to this they have to agree that iraqi forces are capable of protecting them and protecting the unity of the state some of thank you for that for now that is a sound and jive it with the latest from the iraqi capital. well let's get more now from our white house correspondent kelly hellcat she's joining us live from washington d.c.
4:09 pm
and kimberly we were hearing earlier asama talking about the moves that the president president trump is threatening against iraq if they do expel american forces and he's also made some quite incredible statements about further attacks on iran of troy. yes centrally what the president has threatened is to target cultural sites inside iran of importance and significance to the iranian people and this is something that already we're hearing pushback from within the united nations security council essentially saying that this would be a violation of international law. but essentially donald trump is really pushing back on all of this making the argument that this would be justified and in fact the 52 sites that the united states has identified is a symbolic number that it is in correlation to the 52 americans that were held or
4:10 pm
detained back in 1979 by iran fact the u.s. president as he returned on air force one on sunday evening from florida back to washington he did have something to say about this in defense of these actions he said they're allowed to kill our people they're allowed to torture and maim our people there are allowed to use roadside bombs and blow up our people and we're not allowed to touch their cultural sites it doesn't work that way but the president well he has his view certainly the international community preservationists historians also feeling very strongly in the other direction so certainly this will be hotly debated as congress returns to washington as well as the broader global conversation and committee you know what actions can we expect from congress now after trying to limit what the president does any more action that he takes it would survive. there's already pushback from the u.s.
4:11 pm
congress specifically house speaker nancy pelosi not happy that she believes the us president has not adequately informed congress something that the white house does have an obligation to do with respect to this kind of action in fact nancy pelosi the house speaker sending a letter to her colleagues in sunday evening saying she will introduce legislation to try and limit the president's ability to take action against iran this is been followed as well by action by the top democrat in the u.s. senate chuck schumer he is saying that he wants to have declassified the notification that was sent in terms of the war powers notification to congress this is unusual that this was classified sensitive what we're seeing here is an effort by congress to try and reassert itself into foreign policy something that it has been not just with this it ministration but for previous administrations really been pulling back on but again this is something that we're seeing the u.s.
4:12 pm
president defending he has said very expressly in explicitly that if congress wants to stay informed of what he's doing that they can follow his twitter feed just like the rest of the world something that won't be sitting very well with the members of congress so again expected to be debated and taken up this week in congress we also know that the defense secretary mark esper should be briefing congressional members as well the date and time on that still not clear can believe thank you for that that is committee house that with all the nation's life from washington d.c. thank you. the county morehead in the next hour including we'll tell you why sales of families live in mia lucrative mining fields the democratic republic of congo face relocation. the strain is raging read below the scenes confronting emergency service workers they continue to battle bushfires and so forth that is the bron james funny leading to make it stick with the n.b.a. championship joe will have more on of us could all monster class in l.a.

4:20 pm
including a soldier the attack happened and county in a heavily secured camps and priyanka gupta reports. pictures released by al shabaab meant for propaganda but also a warning that a heavily secured military site used by american forces is fair game for its fighters the predawn assault by the al qaeda linked somali armed group was its 1st against u.s. forces in kenya governments have been saying that's about being weak and al shabaab . longer strong they are not capable to carry out attacks or whenever such a statement or cokes are released usually back and say we are here we are still a strong american drones hitting somalia on regular basis so i think this was to send a message to the somali people to say we are not targeting civilians we are targeting foreign militaries and we are fighting on your behalf attackers went on a rampage at the airfield close to the somali border for 4 hours destroying us and
4:21 pm
kenyan aircraft along with military vehicles in the end 5 attackers were killed and the commander of u.s. africa command issued this warning of quote pursuing those responsible for this attack and who seeks to harm americans and u.s. interests but questions are being raised about how a heavily fortified military base could be so vulnerable. putting together an attack of this nature of this audacity take a lot of planning a lot of time and it comes at a moment when it has been especially active along the kenyan border making for azan to kenya this appears to be principally an information operations or psychological warfare operation where she has sent a small number of fighters to a major military base the latest incident comes just over a week off to al shabaab killed 80 people mostly students in the somali capital
4:22 pm
mogadishu that truck bomb attack prompted u.s. airstrikes for over a decade the armed group has been fighting to overthrow the somali government and impose islamic law sunday's attack suggests that fight is far from over. though al-jazeera. to india now where the state of punjab has a majority sec community and has seen some of the most vocal objections to the government's new citizenship law when many saying it discriminates against muslims held raman reports from the ana. hindu sikh christian brothers real one now until forever they chant this is a day of peaceful but noisy protest against india's citizenship law in look to her and across the state of punjab outside the main mosque the minority wisdom community are making their voices heard in the majority sikh community adjoining

4:24 pm
evaluations we decided not to report it rather work for it so that is the reason that we watered for it. but now facing criticism from the sikh faith salie a senior figure head priest singh who was muslims to be included in the citizenship law the akali dal party chief has done a complete u. turn and this could lead to a split with modis b j p party in new delhi nearly 2 percent of punjab's population is most and often thought office an important voting bloc seems a swing voters but a major move by a large sikh party like the s.a.t. could well influence those voters across the board to wards i say to his opponents the congress party and its allies they currently control the state of punjab in the last general election secular candidates consolidated their victories across punjab and much of the credit was given to the muslim vote. while any teacher election is a long way off changing opinion is all the senior muslim priest at this mosque can

football star george waya because as president 2 years ago demonstrators accuse the government of use of power and corruption allegations the government has dismissed as baseless and speak to our correspondent went into shortly but 1st his report from the liberian capital monrovia. oh. to generations of liberians a lot about the state of the nation i have another round of and to government protests in the capital. president george we came to office with a lot of goodwill but that is diminishing and fast i will be front of da protests if i am unable to walk i would carry a stick right now this storm i walk you stick others see the protests as an unnecessary distraction we waited for the politicians if a person wants a change to the constitution they should talk to their politician if someone has a funny representative. sitting just 15 meters away from this heated argument.
4:33 pm
is worried about her family she left home at 5 o'clock in the morning to sell vegetables in this market. no one is buying there's no money to look at my children sitting here in the sun disposed to go back to school but there's no money to pay their fees so they're not starting tomorrow the money totaling 4 $119.00 is due in less than 24 hours. economic decline and inflation have pushed many liberians below the poverty line. the local currency is also steadily losing value exchanging $192.00 the american dollar from 1462 years ago. for many years since the end of the civil war liberia's relied heavily on united nations spending and world budget so when the united nations mission ended it was a shock to the economy to small and medium sized businesses actress shut down
4:34 pm
unemployment rose and inflation got worse this content is now anyway. critics of the government accuse it of liking accountability and rampant corruption . in 2019 they brought thousands of liberians to the streets to protest 7 months later they say things have only got worse we've presented it partition continued to manage to the president to address the issue of corruption specific cases of corruption bad governance a violation of the constitution the president refused to act on any of our demands the 2019 protests lasted a day organizers say this time they won't leave until their demands are met the government has denied allegations that of fishes have been stealing public money the issue is that. mr president won the election
4:35 pm
the political elite you had your money and not. the president so they are been using the view of means. on the mine his authority and to deal with that the election. the protest father polarize people in the west african country. for liberia. what matters most is the opportunity to make some money to feed and send high children to school after that she says the politicians can do what ever they please. but many liberians on both sides of the political divide agree. and i is joining us live from monrovia now we can see a heavy police presence behind you and what do we expecting today. absolutely this heavy deployment of security forces police mostly in riot gear in anticipation of today's protest like you see right behind me the police are
4:36 pm
preventing. some demonstrators just a few 100 of them who are trying to access this road by the way to proceed to the presidential palace is now they've been trying to do that since morning and the police are not letting them go to that particular location coming to this place itself on the road on all major streets leading to this place where you have the president's office the parliament the supreme court all cited in this locality that is must see the police presence and the road blocks to try to organize things we spoke to the minister in charge of information which said this is a routine development and they want to see that the protests which were licensed by the government towards holding peacefully however one thing about today's protests is that the numbers we see here are nowhere near what we sow 7 months ago on june 7th when there was
4:37 pm
a must if turnout of people to protest what they call. shortcomings in the administration rampant corruption and all these issues they're complaining about organizers i spoke to one of the we're going to use this of this demonstration and he's telling me the numbers don't matter as long as the message gets to the right people. which of course is the government of liberia they want action and one of them even one father to say that they are not leaving this place until the government agrees to talk to them and until the government promises to take action on all the demands that put forward if not all down their demands to 5 right now mediation from various agencies including international partners with liberia into religious groups and civil society who have. impressed on them to hold these demonstrations if they will in a peaceful manner however what they are saying is that they will remain here i come to out in front of the parliament building if they cannot accept to do it
4:38 pm
presidential politics however the problem is they have only been granted the license or the freedom to hold this demonstration today we don't know what will be the next move if they insist on staying in this particular environment already as you can see the government business in this area entirely has been disrupted because of what is happening right behind me and off of how long do we think the government will allow this disruption to continue and how are they responding to the protests and the demands. well basically right now what the government is doing is to try to deploy police on the streets of monrovia to ensure that everything is orderly however one activist was telling me that the. presence of police we saw last december december 30th when they were holding demonstrations in monrovia was enough discouragement for many people not to come out on the streets the government hasn't said anything yet but what the minister of information on told me was that some of the grievances for
4:39 pm
them by the protesters has already have already been addressed for example removing such an impeachment the government or government officials can access funds directly from the central bank of liberia that has been taken care of a bill has been. asked by the parliament to take care of that and that is being and that is in the works other issues he said have also been addressed and they don't see the reason why these protests can't go on however the protesters are saying that nothing must has been achieved and that they will still continue to hold that demonstrates just as long as these issues exist one of the issues of course is that the president must declare he's asked it despite the fact that the constitution does not make it mandatory on the president to declare he's also to publicly. thank you for that amount that is of interest for the latest live in monrovia thank you. to india now where mosque mall has attacked teachers and students at an elite
4:40 pm
university in the capital new delhi a student body lent to the government b.j. pay is being blamed the incident the latest in a series of violent clashes across india has resulted in an increased security presence at the campus of the university around 20 people have been injured until the border has sent this update from the campus. the policemen are present here in numbers today but all sunday evening when some of the students and teachers hero were under attack they took their time to enter the university one must also get clearance from the security guard so the students who were beaten up are asking why the security guards just careless or was the administration of the university complicit in the attack that took place on sunday evening about 50 people including women wearing mosques holding on roles in their hands went from one also to another they beat up students as well as some teachers and threatened the students as well
4:41 pm
at the moment about 20 people students and some teachers are receiving treatment at a hospital in new delhi now the students who were beaten up allege that the group that beat them up one gangster bought part of the ab repeat which is a students' union affiliated with the hindu nationalist party to the top party the whole ministry of the country who comes from that party has ordered an inquiry and several ministers in the current government to have started in this university have condemned the violence but the students here don't feel safe anymore many of them have left their hostels and gone back home or to their friends as houses to stay there the big question that people are now asking is because there's a sense of disbelief and panic that how could such an attack take place our students now not see inside their hostels the students of this university have been protesting against the controversial citizenship law and more recently also against the proposed fee hike. well let's get more on this now we are joined by
4:42 pm
