6:00 pm
asis of the day's global headlines inside story on al jazeera. played important role checking in with. each face. this is al jazeera. 1500 hours g.m.t. here on al-jazeera i'm come all santamaria welcome to the news hour the russian police seen moving in on another protest on a day foreign journalists were told their permits are canceled also europe's migration crisis worsens on land and at sea hundreds are stranded in bosnia and an
6:01 pm
overloaded rescue boat is calling for help in the mediterranean. tanzania's president draws big numbers for an election rally as opposition parties say their candidates have been blocked from running. and how the politics of resisting israel's plans to. land is only adding to frustration and hardship in occupied territory. and i'm peter same with all the sports news lewis hamilton takes pole position for sunday's belgian grand prix and 2 major league baseball teams protests racial and social injustice by walking off the field before the game can start. starting in belarus this hour which is tightening its media crackdown as the protests continue against president alexander lukashenko accreditation has been withdrawn for some journalists working for foreign outlets
6:02 pm
a day earlier might remember several of them were actually rounded up and detained in minsk most were later released the president has criticised foreign media coverage of the run up to his disputed reelection this month and then subsequently the demonstrations that have followed. also on saturday there were arrests at what has been billed as a women's march for peace in minsk 10000 people are out demonstrating then now so let's start with bernard smith he's covering this one from neighboring lithuania's in vilnius 1st for obvious reasons bernard you can't get in there and it's getting even more difficult for the media who are in there yeah president previously complained about foreign media coverage of protests in belarus on this crackdown on foreign media continues at least 19 journalists have their accreditation revoked now these are mainly local belorussian
6:03 pm
journalists working for foreign media organizations in kenya to work without accreditation the wrists and the possible consequences of that are severe they risk being arrested and we have heard of journalists being beat not during these past few weeks there are still a few foreign journalists in belarus some of them without accreditation the worst they would fear is being thrown out of the country if they are court we have a statement from some sicko nobbs she was the opposition presidential candidate largely the one that had been an election she is now here in exile essentially and then yes and she said that what has happened is another sign that this regime is morally bankrupt and the only way it will attempt to cling on to power is life and intimidation. despite your location but to tell us what you're hearing from contacts in minsk about the protests today this large women's march the pace.
6:04 pm
it is almost entirely women march and according to a source we have on the ground there about $10000.00 women are taking part that's more than might have been expected so long to so many weeks of protests there was a fear certainly amongst protest organizers that they were losing momentum people were tied people are tied up with so many weeks of protest and no indication is willing to give up power but the biggest protest day is always the someday so if there were $10000.00 people winning out today that is an indication our source on the ground says that i could be much higher on sunday the protesters have also been prevented from walking to independence square where most of the protests where the process of previously been taken place that walks in the opposite direction but they are still out there on the streets that's been
6:05 pm
a smith keeping an eye on events in belarus from neighboring through ania on to other news and hundreds of refugees and migrants are stranded on a railway track in both snow herzegovina on province banned them from entering and then tried to push them into another which also refused it leaves them stuck in the middle support from china balance. on a road to nowhere hundreds of migrants from bosnia a trap to my place and a changing political times the blair riggers like. we are not human here we are. they say they are being kicked between police into neighboring bosnian provinces yunus on a kent on announced last week would ban migrants in tring and movement the rulings in a galaxy has been questioned migrants were pushed back to the province of republika srpska which refused to accept them these were away tracks so the only place they find and stay. there is 17 you know that it is very hard.
6:06 pm
they rely on aid agencies to bring food water and medical aid to the tracks. no food no water nothing. and he migrants seem to me and is increasing in bosnia people in one town says up roadblocks this summer to stop migrants who still see increased after a regional health minister announced 8 migrants have tested positive for private 19 infected were taken to a local hospital and 2 escaped during through the anger from residents. it is certain we have hundreds in fact thousands of migrants and camps where migrants don't follow any norms any regulations and none of our guidance there are simply people who don't respect anything the un's refugee agency says as of last month there were $9000.00 refugees in bosnia accounting for 60 percent of refugees in the
6:07 pm
western balkans the vast majority are from pakistan and afghanistan $600.00 arriving in bosnia each week up from 50 in may. even migrant camps are full. they keep coming every day it would be ok if they were inside camps but they keep coming from everywhere coordinating their movements by phone. then they tried to walk to the croatian border just 3 kilometers that way but get turned back to us. became a bottleneck for thousands of europe migrants and 27 tane as other migration routes closed up resulting in a there she found increase of arrivals these migrants are finding themselves on the wrong side of the tracks charlotte ballasts 0 well the united nations says there are about $9000.00 refugees and migrants in bosnia right now which means it's hosting more than half of all the refugees in the western balkans most of those in
6:08 pm
bosnia are from pakistan and afghanistan about $600.00 people arrive each week we've got a piece of it with us now the bosnia herzegovina representative for the i.o.m. the international organization for migration on skype from so you have a peter thank you for your time today what's going to happen to these people and we've just said how big the numbers are across the country but these specific 500 or so people what do you think is going to happen to them. well i think 1st of all the current stand of creative cannot be sustained i think he said they seem to move to a perennial problems that returning procedure to go through seems most years ago hurricane returns its roots the markets and rejects growth from greece towards older parts of the european union the 1st sees that we've had almost continuously insufficient bits in official accommodation for the markets in ridges from interest they don't
6:09 pm
mean $3060.00 days in both its governor and during this thing not all of them have access to official centers and pro research for example you know some agenda which is harder tortillas decided to soak into markets into their territory there is about 25023000 migrants and refugees currently streaming out sites official or religious into schools here official accommodations into sort through the 2nd program that they seem to be getting is that there has been a lack of a national approach to this issue and the sensors that are there or even one of the canton inside if accounts and only and there's been a lack of willingness of all of course of the country to also extend a producer in centers on their territory and those 2 things together i think have increased a number of protests the most a lot of population in the sun the gentlemen actually in the past 2 years as mostly show a lot of understanding humanity in solidarity with the markets and measure jesus being very lethal and the market sentiment but what we're seeing now i think is
6:10 pm
that people are frustrated after 2 years and have they're still facing with 250-3000 people sitting outside in their neighborhoods we know those solution inside from their perspective so then that description you you noted when you called bosnia herzegovina a transit point is people going through to places like greece which we hear a lot more about maybe it's not a transit point maybe it's actually a place i mean by those numbers which we said that actually more and more people are staying there. well i know what we are seeing today i think the numbers vary from day to day but what we're seeing is about as you indicated between 406 other people or a figure which per week in debating who we receive approximately the same number of people departing if you look at the last 2 and a half years we've consistently had somewhere between say 50026002 mexico 89000 migrants and refugees in most years ago when
6:11 pm
a figure hides the fact that these are not the same people mostly there are so the small group that is an exception but most of these are these are changing population pressure has its years ago now remains transit's country for now which is by the way also the reason why markets and refuses continue to come because they know that they have the highest chance to actually make it through mordor creations really into the own words are you speaking as the i o m i u speaking to or for his in these provinces in bosnia herzegovina about what can be done in this particular case. yes really we are speaking to them but i think when we are specifically speaking also to the council of ministers because when you look at those years ago which is the centralized state but the moderation management including providing unitarian seasons in a tradition community has stayed recently through as you state so the solution cannot really come from accountant or even from salary of work and they can manage
6:12 pm
to a certain degree what happens on their territory but we really need a statewide it's a solution for these and these can really only come from the state council music's reach we hope there is a new lease or security in place we'll take in each the student. accommodation official accommodation especially because we have the winter around the corner but also to hopefully get agreement amongst political actors that we can have a demolition in order to guarantee the sincerity ever. of the british journalist cantons again be reduced in the coming period there i had paid out from the international organisation for migration very important that we talked about this today and we do thank you for your time thank you very much for having me that's just one of the migrant stories we've got happening this saturday the other is at sea where the italian coast guard has picked up 49 people from a charity boat in the mediterranean after it sent out
6:13 pm
a distress call of its own crew on board the m.v. louise michel said that they were no longer able to move the vessel after rescuing 200 refugees and migrants over the past couple of days this is the boat funded by the british street artist banksy. the line now is in the eyes of polish who is a member of the he's michelle shipyard a crew calling in from near to valencia in spain. they have got it up to. actually you believe we might not actually have a connection with her at the moment we'll try to get hold of allies or in a moment to find out what is happening with that charity ship let's have a look at what else is coming up in this news hour the german police stepped in to break up a large coronavirus skeptics protest in berlin because few were wearing masks or keeping their distance. it's the most famous park in america and there are dozens of statues but in the more than 150 year history of central park none are dedicated
6:14 pm
to women until now i'm gabriel's onto a new york coming up i'll tell you which women are now being honored. and in sports novak djokovic edges ever closer to an a.t.p. masters record peter will have that on the rest of the sport a little later. still looking at maritime issues now this is the territorial dispute of course between turkey and greece in the latest escalation the turkish government says it stops greek fighter jets 6 of them from entering sensitive and space although media reports from greece say its planes were hired by turkish fighter is as they returned to base on the on a discrete this happened over a pos of the mediterranean which both countries claim is their own of course potentially rich in oil and gas reserves this month turkey started exploring the
6:15 pm
area for oil and gas the european union which includes grace is calling for a diplomatic solution but it hasn't ruled out the possibility of sanctions either so our correspondents in greece and turkey here they are. live now athens but we're starting with stephanie deca in istanbul so what's the word coming there as we hear from both sides that it seems to be blaming each other for escalating in the skies . yes well this is something that has happened before certainly not in this area but it's a back and forth that at the moment shows no sign of stopping we've had strong words from turkey's vice president saying that some of the moves greece's recently made almost amount to an act of war i mean the message here from from the top has been strong all along turkey saying that it's being unfairly treated in terms of the access to the to the sea to what's under the sea and this also has to do with the recent. treaty if you will between at least 8 countries that use military
6:16 pm
mediterranean gas for greece cyprus israel egypt jordan the palestinian authority all involved in this but turkey not so turkey not happy feeling sidelined one of the reasons why it's undertaken this what the european but the europeans the french president calling it provocative act the french even having sent military hardware here to back up greece so it shows you the international implications and roles that are going on it's not just a simple fight between the 2 sides of course when it comes to energy in the eastern mediterranean you have companies like italy's any like france's to like the american exxon mobile everyone is involved so it's a very complex and multilayered issue that is going on here come all but certainly you know the greeks having the support of the european union this is a dispute between 2 nato allies so it is very complicated certainly a particular when you have so much military hardware in
6:17 pm
a small area and turkey making it clear it's going to continue military drills northwest of cyprus until september 11th ok that stephanie decker in istanbul thank you will move back to john psaropoulos now who's outside of athens for us if stephanie saying turkey is willing to continue this sort of thing i assume greece will as well they will want to match each other here almost. well the reason why it was that it stuck right over the eastern mediterranean was that greece was having a specific military exercise in south of crete and south of cyprus in the in the past few days and those exercises ended yesterday and the day before yesterday respectively so this isn't likely to be a frequent event but the fact that it's happened i mean if you suggest that it could well be repeated in future but it's had an annual military exercise called image use of that is due this it is also
6:18 pm
a multi country exercise it is also likely to ramp up tensions in the region because it's mainly a spinning over the tensions that exist in the age and every day into the new area of greek turkish from confrontation which is the east and mediterranean last year turkish fighter jets clocked $5800.00 violations of greek space. that is a dozen a day that provide ample opportunity for accidents to happen for privates to get killed and they do and this is now spreading and it's involving more countries in the region and it is therefore multiplying the possibility of a. accident or a broken home plate gratian what's at stake of course is microbe except on the deck of rightly pointed out there is gas under the sea floor in greece has probable not proven gas reserves of 70 to 90 trillion cubic feet that's as much as is
6:19 pm
well egypt and cyprus have discovered since the turn of the century combined it has a pre-code but value of about $200000000000.00 now assuming that gas to rubble for the next 25 years the greek state would have up to 30 crowd percent of that value to reap in taxes and benefits and royalties. that is an enormous windfall for a country that has a public debt to 200 percent of g.d.p. it is clearly a very important source of income for the greek economy it is clearly seen as a very important source of income for the turkish economy which is much larger and support times as well so both sides are going to right over this both diplomatically and possibly militarily as well if trucks do not take place in the next month. reporting from the athens thank you john well protests protesters are still out in big numbers in berlin for
6:20 pm
a march against coronavirus restrictions that is despise a police order for the demonstration to be shut down because social distancing rules are being violated counter protests are also planned germany remember has recorded over 242000 infections dominic kane in berlin for us take us through the day's events today just behind you dominick still think plenty of people out there . plenty of people on the streets of berlin today all of them protesting in some way shape or form about what they believe are the worst sides of the coronavirus measures that's the security measures brought in by governments state level and federally here in germany to protect the wider community against the risk of coronavirus infection what you have taking place in burns' city center here the brandenburg gate behind me one of germany's most iconic monuments a focal point
6:21 pm
a rallying area for tens of thousands of people to come united by their hatred as it were of the measures that have been brought in they say that their freedoms are infringed by being forced to wear a mask in public public transport and enclosed spaces they say that having to observe social distancing goes directly against their fundamental freedoms the or thorough here no that's not the case your storage fees believe that by these people not observing social distancing and not wearing masks they increase the threat to the public health not just for the people themselves but for the wider community what the north or excuse here have done is where they have seen protesters not observing the rules they have moved in to stop them as they did earlier in the morning where they've seen protesters observe the rules they've not really stepped
6:22 pm
in to prevent them the police estimate that around 20000 people are on the streets the demonstrations have been coming and going in intensity the plan is for the demonstrations to be over within the next hour or 2 if the organizers are able to retain control of that clearly the police are monitoring the situation very closely and have demonstrated before their determination to break things up if they believe the threat to public health has got too big. thank you for that report dominic cain in berlin and now chris smith with us in a day or so with their radio show the naked scientist sees on skype from cambridge for us chris it is no surprise i think to see protests like this to people who are saying look we're fed up with restrictions we've got to get back to work we've got to get back to life in some way shape or form how to governments manage it. well i can see sort of where these people are coming from because if you think
6:23 pm
about it the entire world we think about a 3rd of the world population have experienced some kind of lockdown which amounts to the biggest restriction in people's civil liberties really in living memory and the difference between previous situations where people have actually been confined to barracks for a while and this one is that no one can put an end date on this no one can say to people your jail term will be over by date x because we just don't know and i think that uncertainty together with how long this is already gone on means to some people becoming extremely frustrated as a result showing that frustration by going on these marches protesting in the way that they are i think some aspects i have sympathy with others less so but then are they arguably not making it worse you have a protest like that in berlin today there's one going on in syria right now as well i think there was one in london trafalgar square as well by going out in big numbers like that and as we see so many people not wearing masks i mean the knock
6:24 pm
on effect could be enormous. well the mosque question aside big numbers is definitely a risk if those people are not observing social distancing and it's very likely that many of them won't i mean obviously you've got to be careful because they may be household groups and household groups can be considered to be a person in the not themselves in one group so that's a bit different but i think some of the tension here is around the question of wearing masks outside and to be quite frank the evidence supporting that measure isn't strong i don't think there's really any justification for a person who's wandering around in the street not near anybody else wearing a face covering that really isn't going to help anybody but when you're in a situation where you can't observe social distancing that's where it might be helpful and the data that we're generating seem to suggest there might be even if it's a small one a benefit from a face covering all of those circumstances and that's why governments such as the u.k. government have said in situations where you can't do social distancing like on public
6:25 pm
transport like in a shop for example where you have less control over where you stand relative to other people than it might be useful but i think people are getting frustrated because they see no end in sight and and to a certain extent you can see how we might be moving to a situation where we now know a lot more about this virus than we did at the outset and as a result we know who the people who are really at risk are therefore people are saying well 99 percent of people are doing something to protect one percent of people perhaps we should throw more resources at protecting that one percent of people and allowing the 99 percent of people to do what they want to do and to take the risks that go with it but then how does it all tally with and i'll say with the u.k. as an example though this is happening elsewhere as well the idea of things like reopening schools and the like you by the very nature of that putting more people at risk even if you try and maintain social distancing there and yet you're still telling the people well can you please social distance and you can please were it's
6:26 pm
this is so difficult to find a happy medium isn't there. well the way to think about this is almost like a seesaw and we want to keep that seesaw in some semblance of balance so everything that we do that involves an interaction between a person and another person is a potential conduit for the virus to spread so therefore if we are offering up to the virus more conduit through which it can spread through doing one set of activities we may have to row back on other sorts of activities or build up our resilience to defend against spread in those other areas so that we keep that seesaw in balance and the schools opening up yes measures are being put in place to try to mitigate risks but yes it is going to offer more opportunities to the virus to spread so we do anticipate more cases but we're hoping that we'll keep that seesaw balanced by having a more resilient testing and tracing system a lot of testing going on and a well informed public plus the people who are going to be going to school the
6:27 pm
school kids on the whole there are a very low risk from the virus if they catch it anyway so the balance is judged to be one where the risk worth taking as it were in this chris really interesting and really informative talking to you thank you do appreciate it pleasure thank you to believe you are which is easing its coronavirus restrictions the interim president . knowledge they could be a 2nd wave but says it's become a choice between the virus or mass hunger the levy's economy was already in trouble before the pandemic hits. if not the corona virus then it will be crucial now hunger because one becomes desperate not have an economic conditions to bring food home but other. we will evaluate god forbid there should be a new outbreak but there's always that possibility of a pandemic has taught us much during this time we're only half done with this news our here's what's coming up. thank.
6:28 pm
you. yeah chadwick boseman known for his role as a superhero in black panther has done. is also to finish some of the best female cyclists to begin the tour de france the time it relates. to. hello there mostly horse and drive picture across much of the middle east we're still seeing quite a bit of cloud across the fall southwest of yemen and this has also produced some showers some of those heavier in the day through sunday you can see a few more of those showers and maybe just even just across russia really across will sudden sections across into amman and maybe into the u.a.e. but meanwhile to the north of there it is very warm 45 in kuwait 46 celsius in
6:29 pm
baghdad the winds that is a bit light on sunday but very warm again for the eastern end of the mediterranean the time which is well above the average and then through monday the temperature quite a lot lower in the hall 36 degrees but the winds coming from the south it will feel very humid but look at these temperatures in jerusalem about 10 degrees above the average for this time of year so really is extremely hot 39 degrees celsius a little bit cooler. very warm with a high of 36 then down into southern africa the use activity across central areas but lots of clouds further to the south of this could well produce some showers it's a front which is training right there back across into balls want to eventually up into angola but also across into zimbabwe areas to south africa because while it will work its way steadily northwards on monday and. gusty winds pushing across into cape town.
6:30 pm
this is one of the down drinking revolutions in all men. we have to meet the c o 2 emission targets. there to diminish and they need to be mined people are just talking about the song or is it that's going to solve the problem of the world of these trees and commerce is driving the energy transmission is the promise of clean energy an illusion the top side of the green energy coming on al-jazeera alaska's phone nor a pristine environment that's become a battleground with the trumpet ministration keen to let oil companies start drilling some in its remote communities are tempted by the promised wealth we may leave here we may not there but others bitterly opposed we should not have to trade our culture for oil and gas crossing the high peaks of the arctic circle to investigate the people in power at the edge of the earth on al-jazeera.
6:31 pm
or on the news hour here at al-jazeera these are the top stories better roosts is tightening its media crackdown as protests continue against president alexander lukashenko credit haitian's been withdrawn for some journalists who are working for foreign outlets turkey says it stopped 6 greek fighter jets from entering airspace above an area where one of its ships is exploring the gas great meteor also said the greek planes were harris to state return to base creeks and the italian coast guard has picked up 49 people from a charity boat in the mediterranean after it sent out its own distress call the m.v.
6:32 pm
louise michel had rescued 200 refugees and migrants and could move the boats is funded by the bridge street. the. line now from near valencia in spain we've got and he's a 42 is a member of the louise michel shipyard crew and he's if you've got an update for us 1st of all about the status of the ship and if it can move yet. the reason that it was not able to move was because they were telling these to life raft along side to not overcrowd to fix too much and also to have. 5 a place that body that was unfortunately found in that boat in distress. arrived on the scene so now as people are being disembarked finally after almost 24 hours. coast guard vessel. the situation is getting if it. is
6:33 pm
a lot of people on board of. then again the only other ship in the area that might be willing to take them on board is the next. 4 'd so again it's not. a job but it isn't the problem that a lot of the ships in fact if not all of them operating refused entry into the ports by trying to go through so they end up being stuck regardless. i was a problem in the 1st place is the absolute lack of faith in the passage for people . wanting to seek asylum in europe it's made it impossible for them to come into. legal ways so that only left with this option going through the detention camps in libya and then ending up on the. absolutely shipwrecked. rubber dinghies and then indeed have
6:34 pm
a society ship. independent project. very much in all the operations by the european states so what's the future plans then for the reasons she had obviously as you said the situation is easing on board now is the plan to continue trying to refuse many people as possible into the future keep funding the project. well unfortunately i think we'll have to keep running the ship if we can because the situation in the central med is not looking like it's going to change it's not looking like european governments are taking up the responsibility to reacting to distress cause of paying. that. in mitosis is. the message of life messages does not reach the governments quite obviously so for now i'll.
6:35 pm
probably try to get back into port once this situation is resolved quite obviously there's a lot of stress physically and mentally on the whole crew tended to get was that many people on the boat for such a long time but then of course we hope that we'll be able to sense the ship back out again ok and he's a thank you for that update we do appreciate. well thousands of people have protested in more rishis against the government's handling of an oil spill from a japanese ship that ran aground last month is anger about the slow response which the prime minister has blamed on bad weather about a 1000 tons of oil spilled into a marine life century when the ship hit a coral reef tanzania's president is officially launched his reelection bid with a rally in the capitol dome or john negroponte is seeking a 2nd term but he's facing accusations of absolute control of covering up the extent of the corona virus outbreak he's facing the opposition leader to undo the

6:40 pm

6:41 pm
have any contact with israel's government ever since the deal was announced it's a strong political statement it is an abraham report that had big consequences as well for people in the occupied territory. imagine reporting an armed robbery to the police but they can't show up on time this is what happened to a jewelry shop owner in 10 feet in the northern occupied west bank thieves keep to israel in june with 8 kilograms of gold police say they know the suspects but can't get to them palestinian security forces requires rady permit to operate in more than 60 percent of the west bank was that already complicates the work but now they don't apply to israel for permits in a political protest against the israeli government plans to annex palestinian lands they've all finian authority cut all ties with israel and may. we
6:42 pm
