10:16 am
is no end in sight to the worst political crisis in the gulf region. reports. many the 20th 2017 donald trump arrives this sunday rabia his 1st trip abroad as u.s. president trumps a was to have wealthy gulf nations joining the u.s. bid to defeat i still to help the war in syria and contain what the u.s. described as iran's growing influence but that was a short lived hope 4 days later the website of qatar's news agency was hacked. act and fabricated statements boasted attribute it to the emir of qatar critical of u.s. policies in the region the washington post subsequently cited u.s. intelligence officials saying the u.a.e. orchestrated the hacking that was just the beginning on june the 5th
10:17 am
sardi arabia the u.a.e. bahrain and egypt severed diplomatic ties with qatar and imposed a land sea and air blockade which continues and to now the qatari government strongly denies allegations of supporting extremism qatar also condemned a list of demands from the quartet as a breach of sovereignty the 13 demands included big relations with iran closing a turkish military base and shutting down the al-jazeera media network there is no appetite at the moment in the international community to to get involved in the gulf crisis the covert 19 condemning it has really consumed pretty much any policymaking capacity in western capitals and other international capitals everybody's looking at dealing with that pandemic any insecurities across the middle east and the gulf crisis just one of many crisis in the middle east have
10:18 am
been put on the back burner this is the man widely seen by qatar as the architect of the blockade mohammed the crown prince of all the b. and effectively the ruler of the united arab emirates benz daid and saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin sandman both strongly oppose calls for democratic reforms that have gained momentum in the region since the arab spring uprisings 9 years ago . this is the law and we're going to be that was small too little on the challenges are huge we're talking that's not about the. challenges and threats that we are talking about no well. you know you can all mix. in that mix social environment and all of these as well as of course the hard security
10:19 am
all of the only. reason works together as well you know. qatar has ruled out withdrawing from the g.c.c. and says it welcomes talks with its rivals but only when the blockade is lifted according to the wall street journal trump has recently called on sandy arabia and the u.a.e. to and their ban on qatari airlines using their airspace but this was turned down by the saudis and emirate is who believe the risk reactions are their only leverage to extract concessions from qatar the role kate has left lasting ones for qatar raise they hope their gulf wire voles will mend the diplomatic rest one day but qatar and the sandy lead quartet remain divided over a wide range of issues that reconciliation may take a long time about al-jazeera doha. well as you heard there one of the incidents
10:20 am
that led up to the book was the hacking of qatar's news agency 3 is on disinter mation network system active spreading rumors that tend to jump from twitter to use papers for indicating countries most are aimed at discrediting katanas ruling royal family in the past few months for example qatar has denied unconfirmed reports it was planning to leave the gulf cooperation council before that they were rumors of a coup attempt all based on a fake video in april saudi owned. news arabia and b.b.c. arabic all we ported very qatari dissident had been killed in a doha prison or has since deleted their reports the country government told the news agency that the 1st this information campaign back in 2017 was unprecedented but that people no longer take them seriously while i speak to mark owen jones about this his an assistant professor of middle east studies at hamad bin honey for university is now via skype from here in doha mark very good to have you with us on al-jazeera you know they've been passed tensions between these countries this is
10:21 am
not the 1st crisis to hit the g.c.c. what sets this particular one upon it and why do you think the distance from ation campaign has seemingly been amplified this time round. i think i mean this is unprecedented as you mentioned in your report the severity of the blockade and the conditions imposed on cuts we've never seen anything like this before i think this information is has been crucial to this campaign so any political move whether it's war and the initiation of a crisis a country such as day or the emirates have to try and legitimize that decision and get the public opinion on side traditionally that was done through traditional media such as newspapers or television however because of the rise of digital media and social media the high technology tracing rates in saudi the u.a.e. egypt the best way to do that to convince people that there is something wrong is the train fabricate the story through social media and create the there's
10:22 am
a popular groundswell of opinion supporting this decision to isolate cats or write it that dissent from ation campaign seems to have increased a lot in the past year judging from you know what we see on twitter about a month ago at the start of the holy month of ramadan twitter was rife with woman as of a coup here in qatar who is behind all this creating you know the fake messages the fake accounts online. yeah i mean so the rumors of a coup i prefer to rephrase it as a deliberate this information campaign because rumors of a coup implies that fate video was shed or fake news or shared and then people picked up instantly and spread it would be missed as opposed to this information if we analyze the data of this fake trend this fake story we see that a lot of the people driving it are the verified saudi influences so these are people we know to be real they have high follow up bases and they have been
10:23 am
consistently the same group of uses in both the rumors that began on the 4th of may and that began again 10 years later 10 days later sorry so what this would suggest to me is that there is an orchestrated campaign to spread these messages that involves the use of fake accounts bots but also a co-opted group of influences who presumably. you know contracted by a maybe it's a company on behalf of someone else to spread use. me just ask you before we go what sort of reach this is having what sort of impact are we seeing these campaigns having overall and you know i think if active and i think they are effective particularly to domestic audiences. what we know now is because these campaigns are so common that there is a sort of infrastructure in place or people myself who monitor these so we can quickly identify that it's a fake news story and allow the counter-narrative to be put out there or at least
10:24 am
people to fact check these claims and know they're false however if you live in say say you know united arab emirates and rely on say channels like our beer sky news arabia or domestic newspapers there's a very good chance that you believe a lot of these fake stories to be true and this will basically serve the domestic audience in those countries and serve them to make them believe that there is a conflict or a crisis continuing in qatar thank you so much for talking to us about this mark owen jones from the hamad bin khalifa university here in delhi thank you for your time. the coronavirus crisis now and doctors in nicaragua say the infection rate there is out of control but the government says the outbreak has president daniel ortega resisted ordering a lockdown health workers complain they're facing the consequences now reports. and express burial in the middle of the night that's how we see it all had to bury his father. by the order of the new government he's father allegedly had go read 19
10:25 am
. when i entered the symmetry i had to actually naturally because there were orders that the body must be buried and there was no turning back so the only thing i had to try to do was to stream it so that my friends on facebook could be there with me at the time but i don't know. reports of people being buried at night show the death toll of over $1000.00 is higher than the government of the new lot of big i would like to acknowledge officially only $46.00 people have died since the pandemic started but independent sources say the number is closer to 980 most death certificates say the deceased died of a typical pneumonia. critics say the government was also behind a campaign to convince the population that been demick will only attack the rich. we are battling with 19 about extreme measures radical measures that would kill the
10:26 am
country and we are keeping regular activities open and taking special measures to protect the most vulnerable. but among the dead are journalists like more this who also allegedly died of kovi 1000 his relatives blame the government for how he was treated. they killed him this is murder they did not give us any information of what was happening we will continue fighting as we start to date he was back out in the recliner nobody can say anything they have a must. well in the mouth the all takers are the owners of nicaragua they have the onus of. doctors in the country have created an independent commission as reports show hospitals are struggling to cope with a situation. we have a 2nd poorest country in the region we come off to haiti we have horrible hygiene conditions trash collection is not working in the capital people don't have any
10:27 am
water 24 hours a day the government is not taking any measures to protect the population. and you know to think i has been here that i was president since 2007 and has battled opposition brutally in the past few years the fear is that his denial of 19 will have devastating effects in a country that is already in desperate need. now friday is world environment day and scientists are pushing for greater efforts to protect everything from the largest land mammals to invisible ocean microbes that help create the air we breathe nicholas. reports the wonders of the natural world are an antidote to these troubling times especially the extraordinary life you know or ations like the millions of golden jellyfish here in the marine lakes of pirlo a unique subspecies evolved to harvest energy directly from sunlight or the myriad
10:28 am
diversity of the world's coral reefs where 25 percent of marine species live but here too there's another biomass which dwarfs everything else combined and it's invisible to the naked eye it's the microbial life of aussies and it's found everywhere from the surface to 4000 meters down. and these unseen microbes include astronomical quantities of viruses that attack marine bacteria all part of the web of life in the sea. in fright every liter of seawater contains more viruses that there are people on the planet 95 percent of all life in the oceans by weight is comprised not of fish or of whales but of microbes. and it is these microbes that create 50 percent of all oxygen on the planet every 2nd breath that we brief. the problem is from

invisible lifeforms to some of the biggest piece on the planet biodiversity is threatened by environmental destruction for the african elephant it's more than just poaching for the ivory trade we're also facing big big challenges when it comes to happen that transformation for larger industries and of course the biggest impact that is less talked about which is the increasing population of africans and therefore the competing nature of land between elephants and people and it's when the ever decreasing frontier between wildlife and humans is breeched disease like corona virus can jump from animals to people out of the 7800000 species that we have on the planet about 1000000 species are under threat from extinction and that's a lot because the nature is this finely attuned by diversifying its human system where each one plays each species plays

a role in the bigger puzzle who would 19 is clearly one of these messages that we need to understand and heed very fast that you can't continue to undermine and encroach on nature and expect nature to be stable. it's apparent that we're at a turning point experts say the error of his code it must be one where we act to save our environmental heritage will continue to pay a heavy price nick cluck al-jazeera. get him fully back to bill with the headlines on al-jazeera services have been held in honor of george floyd in the u.s. cities of minneapolis and new york the 46 year old african-american died after a police officer knelt on his neck during an arrest nationwide protests were temporarily pause for the memorial services meanwhile 2 police officers have been
