1:02 pm
the country's deepening political crisis mollies been consumed by protests for 6 weeks now with tens of thousands of people demanding that president the brain boubacar kate a steps down at least 14 people have been killed in recent days the protests are led by the m 5 movement of opposition activists the accused president of corruption mishandling the economy and not improving security they have rejected a proposal from a regional bronco os calling for a unity government instability in mali has helped rebel groups linked to al qaeda and i saw take a foothold using the country as a launching point for attacks on neighboring nations let's bring in algiers nicholas hock who is following the story from the car in senegal nic a squad of the delegation arriving in bamako today a regional effort clearly stepping up to try and resolve this crisis in this last last ditch effort achieve anything. well as you mentioned
1:03 pm
a big delegation never have we seen so many heads of state come to a country to try to resolve the crisis not since the gambian election in 2016 when they refused to step down the reason being is because stability in mali is key to security in many of these nations to which leaders are coming to this country we've seed attacks launched in ivory coast just weeks ago from armed groups that are in mali we've seen attacks also in asia where 80 percent of the trade of senegal is with the landlocked country of mali so there's a lot a lot at stake for these regional countries and they want to see the return of the rule of law and the legitimacy of our kate are restored because these unprecedented protests are saying are asking for president. to resign what the echo was a body are suggesting is that 1st let's resolve one crisis at the time the
1:04 pm
electoral crisis of the recent parliamentary elections where some of the constitutional judges confirmed the seats to the ruling party to close allies and relatives to the family of kate well the echo us recommends that new judges be appointed to their core and be set to try to resolve that parliamentary crisis then the crisis of government the ecowas body recommends that a government of national unity is formed with the participation of some of the leaders of the. protest movement it's worth remembering that some of these members of this protest movement were close allies to. including mahmoud who had supported him when he ran in the presidential election of 201820133 of those that are now protesting against were for. are
1:05 pm
ministers under the president's. fully a lot of stake for mali as you say but also for the region as a whole and the french as french presence in the region the french have some 4000 troops in mali what role are they playing right now. well they are supporting the eco os mediation efforts they don't want to see. forcibly removed out of power just like good luck jonathan mentioned on sunday after his his 6 day long mediation efforts in bamako he said that it would be unconstitutional for kate to step down at this time so they were supporting the efforts of the eco os but. a letter that al-jazeera has been able to see when m.p. from the french parliament has raised questions towards the french foreign minister . on the use of commandos trained by the french army
1:06 pm
and weapons that were sold by the french to this unit that is only used to fight armed groups such as al-qaeda or states in the greater sahar well that commando was used to it was deployed against protesters on the demonstrations on the 11th and 10th of july and that resulted in the loss of life 15 people were dead and that not only result in the loss of life but also in the that the opposition being more convinced that is is should be removed from office they say that he is in breach of article 37 of the constitution of ali because he set out his own army against the people so he they want to see kate removed but at this stage that's not on the table so the prime minister. who's been quite vocal
1:07 pm
defending the government position well that might be a talking point today among the heads of states that will be in bamako to negotiate a deal or an end to this crisis fully quite a complicated and volatile situation will continue to follow it with you of course . in the car. now the news 45 people have been killed in airstrikes in western afghanistan according to local officials a district governor in the province of herod says at least 8 civilians have died and his blaming afghan forces members of the taliban have also been killed afghanistan's defense ministry has launched an investigation the u.s. says it's not involved let's speak to victoria funtown about this she's a professor of peace studies at the american university of afghanistan she's live in kabul thank you so much for being with us on the al-jazeera news hour we have different accounts of the attack from both the afghan government and the taliban what do you think happened here and what's the motive behind this attack in your
1:08 pm
opinion well what's happening as usual is that different to the call the are creating a different narrative. what would be certain would be to go to the site of the attack and actually to speak to the families of the casualties and see how many people died actually died and where the where the air strikes came from what is clear is that the afghan government does have the capacity to launch strikes against exporters but the very often it is actually doing so we support the needles so it's very unclear where the strike came from even though the u.s. say it did not it was not involved. in this attack what is very clear is that the u.s. even denying the part of this attack press pressurize the afghan government taking part in them peace talks that should be. yet as he said the u.s. has condemned the airstrike suggesting that this was done by the afghan government
1:09 pm
what impact do you see this having on the in traffic and peace talks and also on the doha agreement which was reach with the taliban. well the fact is going to have is that the trust that has been a between the different parties to the conflict is clearly broken there has been no we don't actually in violence in the past few quite the contrary and so after this s. trike which was osa possibly targeting taliban prisoners who had been released by the government obtuse yet of this strike this is going to further damage the potential relationship that could have been established between the afghan government and the taliban so it is not looking good for the future of any peace talks in afghanistan yeah so how much are you know these recent attacks not just the one today but a number of them setting back the peace process in your view you think we're still a long way then to saying in traffic can negotiations begin absolutely
1:10 pm
a long way away and the afghan government you storing is invoking that the prison knows it does not want to release a criminologist have been involved in all sorts of attacks the taliban are continuing their pressure against them government security forces so none of those 2 sides actually want to sit at the table at the moment and and those talks could be months away thank you so much for talking to us victoria from town professor of peace studies at the american university in kabul. a former nazi concentration camp guard has been convicted of being an accessory to the measure of more than $5000.00 people during world war 2 the trial against 93 year old day will be one of the last against nazi war criminals live to domany cain in berlin for a so i go t. verdict against bono day tell us about the details of this that.
1:11 pm
the offenses that this individual has been found guilty of occurred in 1984 when he was a 17 year old was part of an s s unit in top of a concentration camp which then was in nazi germany now is in modern day poland the court that tried this individual was a youth court because the the age of the defendant when he committed the offenses was such that he couldn't be prosecuted in an adult court that's why the sentence passed on him is a suspended sentence a 2 year suspended sentence one of the interesting aspects of this case is as has been said that this is perhaps if not the last one of the very last opportunities that modern germany will have to prosecute those who it believes were guilty of crimes against humanity of war crimes during the nazi german era but it also is an
1:12 pm
opportunity to reflect upon the fact that many tens of thousands of people who had a much more intimate connection with the machinery of mass murder during that time were never prosecuted this specific individual was interviewed by west german police extensively at the beginning of the 19 eighties and so the or forty's were fully aware of what he had done and what he had not done during his time at that camp and they did not prosecute him then it was only in the course of the last 4 or 5 years of the decision was taken to proceed against this individual and end. you know what are people in germany making of this case as you said this was one of the last cases against the iraq crimes what kind of interest has that has there been. one of the things about modern germany is the way that it contemplates the since the atrocities perpetrated by previous generations the generation now has no
1:13 pm
association with it and yet many people in the education system are made aware of what was done during the nazi german era from the victim's point of view many people who have looked on this case have welcomed the chance for some of the people who survived the ordeal they suffered in tough to confront this individual to have their chance that time in court so that justice could be done a whole new him but also justice could be done for them as victims of this individual and the many other people who were involved in the camp and then on the wider angle it's a chance to reflect on everything that took place and indeed as i said to look at the fact that many many people mice murderous talk shows great quests of innocent people during the nazi germany era were never prosecuted and were able to lead
1:14 pm
a normal life and to live and to have a natural death not to be punished with the sins that they committed during that 12 year 12 year rule of the nazis in this country and then of course across europe thank you very much for that dominic cain live for us in belin. and there's lots more ahead on this on jazeera news hour including going door to door in order to graduate with meet the cuban medical students working to track down corbett 19 class a warning that a fleet of illegal chinese and north korean fishing vessels are threatening the sustainability of fish stocks and major league baseball is set to return after a 4 months especially suspension because of the coronavirus beats will be here with the latest since christmas. first tension once again in cities in the united states same portland oregon
1:15 pm
security forces have launched and protesters have lit fires on the streets tehran gree because federal officers have been sent to control demonstrations which have been going on for 56 nights now but present donald trump has promised to deploy more offices this time to the cities of chicago and albuquerque he says it's to control what he calls to rise in crime others say it's an election stunt by kana reports. the concern about federal involvement was sparked by scenes like this from portland oregon to weeks of anti racism protests federal troops in unmarked uniforms moved in confronting demonstrators and detaining them in unmarked vehicles much to the end of the state's governor this is a democracy not a dictatorship we cannot have secret police abducting people into and putting them in unmarked vehicles. i cannot believe i have to say that to
1:16 pm
the president of the united states now the president has announced his intention of sending federal offices to several other cities today i'm announcing a surge of federal law enforcement into american communities play. violent crime will work every single day to restore public safety protect our nation's children and bring violent perpetrators to justice for months president trump has regularly tweeted law and order in capitals and this decision is regarded by many as a campaign ploy in an election year the mayors of several major cities have sent this letter to the attorney general blasting the proposed deployment the letter reads in part these are tactics we expect from authoritarian regimes not our democracy that has been an especially violent summer atlanta has seen
1:17 pm
a 300 percent spike in shooting victims compared to the same week in july last year in new york city over the past week shooting victims are up more than 200 percent. counting frustration during this pandemic and widespread anger at police has led to what many view as a perfect storm of increased violence that federal involvement could intensify rather than fickle mike hanna al-jazeera washington while the city of philadelphia has top prosecutor has warned that federal agents will face criminal charges if they unlawfully assault or 'd arrest anyone in the city if they choose to follow the law then we all get along famously and if they choose not to follow the law then they will discover that there are laws in the county of pennsylvania that can be used to prosecute them. it is certainly my hope that their behavior will be entirely legal but based on what i saw in portland it is my opinion that some of
1:18 pm
their behavior looks like criminal conduct. the u.s. house of representatives has approved a bill aimed at reversing donald trump's controversial order which bans entry to immigrants from mostly muslim majority countries trumps initial ban targeted iran libya somalia syria and yemen critics say it amounts to an unlawful religious discrimination the no ban would limit the president's ability to block immigration based on religion however the act is unlikely to ever be put into effect because a republican controlled senate is likely to vote against it. now more than 15000000 people have now been infected with corona virus worldwide most have recovered but doctors are still trying to work out the extent of long term damage in the 3rd part of our series we look at the research into what effects patients can expect join a holy force from east kilbride in west offs in the west of scotland. it looks
1:19 pm
a little well it's the. but then when it came with the disease that was their tank it's now thought that covert 19 is far more than just a response to treat disease and that is the picture of a very unwell individual. infection and trauma can extend well beyond the lungs to other organs like the heart the kidneys even the brain psychosis stroke and chronic fatigue are all possible side effects with u.k. hospital research being run by the universities of leicester and dum de still at the earliest stages thankfully a lot of patients have recovered and have got all that we hope these patients will recover fully think of that's an older self but we are fearful that they may not and they may have long term effects on their physical abilities or in their mental abilities i think it's too hard to see it's not just a disease affects along it's a disease affects the whole body nasa and sponsor the whole body we know it can
1:20 pm
affect every organ watching happen in the air i think it's a little different present for those worst affected the road back to full health can be a long one at the hughes vive the month in an induced coma and 17 days on ventilation machines kept him alive as his body ceased to function getting better still it is quite a while. just to keep what you have to your lyrical point of view israel that is to go to sleep to talk to you today and. not a discussion we don't relate to it which is we can gauge in studio you know this is we do know that there's still a great deal that is not known about covert 19 exactly how it spreads whether it's airborne or not and quite why some people are worse affected than others and for those who are most severely affected the question of long term consequences for which the medical fraternity has very few answers occupational therapist elaine
1:21 pm
tracey looks for signs among other things of cognitive impairment before patients can be sent home to fend for themselves can they remember how to complete basic tasks like make a cup of tea do you mean in the sense of brain them. about whether it's a parent thing or whether it's a transition we don't know my gut feeling is that i'm hoping it is just because of the i.c.u. open that it's not anything to do with actual covert it's more the i.c.u. and bin and to beat it that's actually causing the problems say it was things that's questions heavy questions for those who've lived through the worst to cope with 19 and who now face its uncertain consequences joel al jazeera scotland or less discuss this further now with david knott who is a professor of neuro psychopharmacology at the imperial college london is joins us
1:22 pm
via skype now from iron bridge thank you so much for being with us how worried should people who have been you know who've recovered who have beaten the coronavirus how worried should they be about the long term health of their non term health what what do we know and what don't we know when it comes to the effects the long term effects of call the 90. well we don't know very much but we do know that some people will have long term negative impacts on their brain in terms of neurological changes like impaired taste in parents well impaired concentration and some people will end up having disorders like depression and p.t.s.d. post-traumatic stress disorder as a consequence of the virus so the message is very clear if you're not making a quick recovery start to seek help because we need to get these kind of people into trials as soon as possible right at the corner of ours has largely been considered a respiratory disease but
1:23 pm
a number of studies from around the world have found a prevalence of neurological problems as well uncovered 1000 patients how how devastating is aimed packed on the nervous system how how does it manifest itself well it's the the the nervous system is affected by the virus in the same way as the body we discovered that actually that there was spirit free a target is only one of many different targets of covidien people are dying as a result of changes in blood vessels and changes in clotting. in the same way in the brain it can affect different parts of the brain and it can affect different brain functions but then there's one other really important aspect of this which is that the people who haven't got it but who have been put through the trauma but simply that this is the health care people they will also suffer the consequences of of seeing people die in circumstances which they didn't expect them to die and
1:24 pm
also they will suffer because they've been put under a lot of personal threats without in many countries protective equipment and depression is an issue when it comes to 1000. undoubtedly i think a lot the biggest consequence of colvin is going to be in psychiatric consequences not respect tree or cardiovascular consequences and we should start planning for that now other viral infections other influenza infections we know damage the brain lead to long term consequences we should be monitoring it and putting into place interventions as best we can as soon as possible and what sort of treatment should patients that are dealing now with some of these effects is there anything that can be done for that yes so if you've got a standard depression and i've seen this already people i know and help treat antidepressants can help people come out of the exhaustion that it can lead to so
1:25 pm
that that kind of depression can be treated with conventional antidepressants it's possible that the p.t.s.d. symptoms will respond to traditional treatments like s.s.r.i. is but my own view is that we need to be innovative and there are new treatments coming along for these disorders the tickly just treatments such as psychedelics and m.d.m.a. we should also be fast tracking those into psychological interventions in the same way as we fast tracked the. treatments into the the pulmonary complications thank you so much for talking to us david knott professor of neuroscience mcconnachie at imperial college london thank you for your insight thank you now syria has reported as high as daily number of corona virus in 3 months 5 people died from the illness on various day while the state of victoria recorded 403 new infections in the city of melbourne and the rise in cases has led to an order for people to wear
1:26 pm
masks at all times outside their homes. time now for a check on the world by the way the hurricane season in the atlantic it is it started off as you might remember quite viciously then it went caught again but it's popping up we head towards peak season orientate ourselves this is south america this is the caribbean up here so you look at the coast of africa west coast of africa as between the 2 that you tend to get these build up of substance on the storms this is one here which is actually come up enough to be named now we have quite a few stores so far so up to g. . this is not quite a hurricane but will be very soon and then it starts to track slowly west is going to take a few days but the numbers heading towards probably barbados well as a hurricane watch in force but we shall be probably category one hurricane significant moving fairly quickly want to be careful of but not the most vicious given that we're in the season it's carry on this general direction the gulf of mexico is generating something not
1:27 pm
a hurrican i would hesitate to say that but it is a tropical spinner probably a depression it might set a tropical storm so all along the coast of texas in particular low level coast there is some concern about his tropical storm washi most of the rain is more like to be around new orleans and the winds won't be that strong but again cover days ahead so we should watch it and finally in the pacific another hurrican this one co douglas is traveling directly towards hawaii it'll take a while to get there but it's yet another hurrican in the pacific. thank you so much for that rob and still ahead on the news hour on a mission to mars china spends its 1st unmanned spacecraft to explore the red planet's. this is a member of the task because we prepare. games as we're used to taking the plunge with one year to go the countdown is on to the delayed tokyo games.
1:28 pm
who's to blame for the mishandling of the coronavirus kunda make in the united states i'll be putting the tough questions to trump surrogate jack kingston and former democratic party official just o'connell in a special edition of head to head. not even through wave one as a result of a lack of leadership here i said to my people slowed the testing down please that is criminally negligent and i will sit there and i thought it was hilarious head to head on algis iraq. what is the price of luxury. an undercover team travels deep into the illegal cocoa plantations of the ivory coast simple solutions are very hard to find for something as complicated as the child labor chocolates hearts of darkness and count as unpaid child labor is working in a 100000000000 dollar industry overhaul of the country's cocoa produces live below

1:31 pm
a morgan has been looking into the concerns many people have about the effect of the giant dommy have on the region's downstream then she joins us now live from dam asean in sudan's blue nile state on the border with ethiopia so we know that the african union had to bridge the relationship on the dam between ethiopia sudan in egypt but they haven't been successful so far how are the differences between the countries affecting people who live nearby while fully the 3 countries say that their differences is divided into 2 technical issues and legal issues now the technical is the one that is going to be affecting civilians downstream in sudan and egypt and they're mostly on how much water will be released from the from the ground if you can as owns them or gird as it is called downstream now the 1st point of impact that we will be seeing will be right here on the blue nile down in sudan called to say there is now this dam has been
1:32 pm
helping regulate water for lots of farmers and there is there is a point of difference between sudan and if you are over how much water if you should release downstream so that this dam is not affected sudan says that if you can release as more than 250000000 cubic meters per day than the capacity it would be beyond the capacity of the series them and that would lead the dam to stop operating especially if gates and that's what helps regulate what are for lots of farmers downstream. planting banana trees is nothing new to has been in safer don't now his family has owned farms in sudan's blue nile state for generations has been managing some of the lands for years and has noticed changes in the landscape and. our farms are by the bloom in about a decade ago the river was 500 meters away but since the increased highs of the day the flow of the nile river has changed and some parts of the water levels have gone
1:33 pm
down in others there's an increase in production some parts increase and decrease in others it all relies on the dam and its operation has the means farm is on the banks of the blue nile river the water is controlled by there was a was down built more than half a century ago to irrigate farmland it's also one of the main sources of hydro electricity the dam was extended in 2013 with the aim of increasing water levels for farmers to irrigate their crops farmers say the river which used to cost seasonal floods is more controlled now but there are concerns about the dams future . this reservoir called is the 1st point where water from the territory is reserved . experts and government officials say the feeling of the ground if you can renaissance them will have an impact on. so dan has tried to bring together. a stakeholder on the mile the 3 sides say the technical issues have been resolved but the legal aspects remain so dance government is also concerned about the safety
1:34 pm
of the new dam and says it has failed to provide any safety guarantees its resale is that just 100 kilometers away from the stand or gird as it's known. to be signing an agreement prior to the start of the filming of the good safety is entirely dependent on the operations of the good disagreements are currently concentrated on legal matters the degree to which the agreement is binding separation agreement to water sharing agreements and conflict resolution mechanisms as well as various other limited technical issues. analysts agree that mismanagement of ethiopia's grandam will affect the irrigation of farmland in sudan . the capacity of result is a 6 to 7000000000 cubic metres but the good says 47000000000 if the water released by the good as above or is it is capacity that would lead to its destruction
1:35 pm
another issue is that the irrigation of land along the nile will reduce by an estimated 50 percent famines need a mix of the wit and dry seasons so the agricultural patterns will be affected has to mean expects any changes to the floor will further change the landscape of his home but he hopes to continue growing crops just like his ancestors have done for generations. another issue that they haven't agreed on is how to operate or to get drought season now drought is defined as a prolonged drought rather is defined as 4 consecutive years where the nile falls or rather than yet the man goes below 300000000000 cubic meters now this has not happened in over 2 decades but they say that should that happen. needs to be measures put in place to make sure that downstream countries are not affected when it comes of illegal issues all these agreements that they reach so far or that the 3 sites they have reached has not been signed on so it's not legally binding and that is causing concern for sudan and egypt as well so lots of issues still remain
1:36 pm
to be resolved the 3 sides say they will continue discussions to make sure that if you can operate it's them and that downstream countries are not affected morgan thank you very much indeed for that he morgan reporting there live from the ethiopia sudan border now to what are what is being called dark fishing fleets scientists say chinese and north korean trawlers a threatening fish stocks by scooping up hundreds of millions of dollars worth of seafood the academic journal advanced sciences used satellite technology to identify fleets of hundreds of chinese shauna's and thousands of smaller north korean vessels they don't want to broadcast their positions in are invisible to monitoring systems scientists found in their dark practices widespread in the contested waters between japan russia and the korean peninsula where there's little incentive to sharing data because of territorial disputes eagle activity threatens
1:37 pm
to sustainability of the fish stocks in a region where some catches have declined 82 percent in 20 years. or let's speak to j u n parker who's a senior data scientist at global fishing watch he joins us live via skype from paris scientists and that you were involved in in this discovery and what that what it's found tell us more about what it's what you found in relation to the so-called doc fleet and how you were able to track the ships and determine their origin. good afternoon. study eliminates extensive illegal fishing in north korean waters by more than 900 in 2017 and more than 700 in 2010 likely in violation of u.n. sanctions and their catch is estimated to be more than $168.00 an ounce of squid was over $440000000.00 between 2017 and 18 and this reveals the largest known
1:38 pm
case of illegal fishing in which story perpetrated by that source from one nation operating in another nation's waters and we used 4 different set light technologies to eliminate the activity of these dark slits and each of these satellite technology is provides only a partial picture but if you combine them all together it gives you the whole picture and it is the 1st time we combine all of these different satellite technology is to publicly exposed it to video of dogs. using this machine learning techniques and big data on that is and how we how are we sure these are vessels originated from china because some of them some of these are sort of use occasionally tracking devices. satellite truck tracking devices and if during their fishing trips to north korea we could track them track their movements from ports in china back to courts in china and their movements on this
1:39 pm
tracking device indicate that they also fish in china national waters where no other nations are allowed to fish and fish and only we cross-checked this number of detected vessels with the on the water observation by south korean authorities when these vessels originated from china crossing into north korean waters through the south korean what grade the chinese government has said it complies with all u.n. sanctions on north korea and says evasion tactics employed by the ships made it very difficult to do very fine if a given vessel had engaged in illegal fishing could this really be happening without the knowledge of the beijing government to thank you. well we can't really verify that these technologies whether the government of china authorized or love these fossils to operate in north korean waters. however south korean
1:40 pm
authorities inspected some of these fossils from china. and these parts of some of these are sorts carry some official document apparently should buy chinese government more authority to use but we can't really very fight through satellite technology is so global fishing which provides information and data that's all detected fishing and waters so that countries in the region can make informed decisions and have a more constructive discussion you know what impact has this been having the presence of these chinese fishing boats having on our north korean fishermen and their livelihoods. well this is another to be a chunk of findings. the following about 3000 north korean vessels fish also illegally in the russian waters in 2018 and we believe in competition with this large number of industry of chinese origin it's likely squeezing to small
1:41 pm
scale north korean fishers out of their all and fishing grounds pushing them into neighboring russian waters and small scale primitive boats are severely undercut under equipped for such long distance travel and on the other side of the sea hundreds of north korean coast boats have watchdog in japan in recent years some foreign and teal which human remains on board in our study really fine fall and there is a strong correlation between the number of illegal north korean fishing vessels operating in russia and autos and the number of course boats found in japan representing a serious humanitarian crisis driven by the massive illegal fishing around the waters thank you so much for talking to us and sharing your findings jaylen ponk senior data scientist said. the global fishing watch from paris thank you very much for your time thank you. now pakistan's government has denied reports that
