to almost 10 years worth of its annual energy. prime minister just in your journey enjoys a landslide election victory is new zealanders reward her for curbing qubit 90. sports news english premier league leaders everton play out a thrilling $22.00 draw with local rivals liverpool. so the protesters are gathering in lebanon to mark one year since mass anti-government protests they've been rejecting corruption and the ruling class lebanon has been experiencing its worst economic crisis since the civil war which is only deepened since the pandemic let's take a look at how we got here in october last year a newly announced tax on calls made through the whatsapp application triggered protests across lebanon and then it turned into a broader call to end government corruption unemployment and poor public. it led to
6:02 pm
the resignation of prime minister saad hariri and a political deadlock to replace him and then in early august a powerful explosion ripped through central beirut killing more than $200.00 people that became another symbol of government incompetence and weeks later a 2nd wave of coronavirus threats for tens of thousands of people who lost their homes in the. spring to across one of the holder who joins us from beirut and this is and has been a dismal year in front of frustration once again mounting to say the least protestors rejecting corruption and the ruling class. yes they've returned to the streets to mark the anniversary of what these people call a revolution a nationwide leaderless and spontaneous movement was born on october the 17th when the government planned to tax what's up calls for many that was really the last straw they have been suffering as a result of dire economic conditions people losing their jobs they consider the
6:03 pm
ruling class which has been governing this country for decades corrupt and they believe that those in power they say they were stealing the money so people took to the streets it was a spontaneous movement there was a lot of energy there was a lot of optimism but it fizzled out it fizzled out after a few weeks for for many for many reasons 1st of all of fatigue 2nd the state intimidation the stakes responded with poor security forces are arresting people they intimidated people and people were also attacked by party loyalists supporters of the traditional political parties who run the country their supporters who benefits from the sectarian patronage network star and place people here want to topple what they call the regime. they also why. a new system of government
6:04 pm
because lebannon system of government is based on sectarian sharing and they believe that this prevents a civil state from being born and it prevents a state with a foreign state from being born for people here if you look around their holy holding one flag the lebanese live in a show of unity because this is a deeply polarized society where a lot of people are loyal to their party to their sect before the nation so they have faced a lot of challenges they haven't achieved their goals but today's message is about the determination it is about a message to the authorities that we will we will not back down. is drawing in there's another shot which i think we can show you which shows the crowds of protesters and they're all holding a lot of the holding candles tell us about that what's it all about. yes we are right outside the port the beirut port. nearly 3 months ago now of
6:05 pm
that massive explosion that devastated many neighborhoods in the lebanese capital protesters decided to march here because they wanted to pay tribute to the people who have died people here blame those in power for negligence and mismanagement because there were nearly 3 tons of ammonium nitrate stored in unsafe conditions in one of the warehouses of that port and nobody did anything about it all those in power including the president and the prime minister knew about the presence of this explosive material and yet they did not store it safely so people decided to come here at all they are expected to mark that moment of the explosion at 6 o 8 pm they're going to have a hard life a torch and yet another symbol of their determination. the push for change
6:06 pm
people here are under no illusion that this fight not only easy we mentioned how security forces clamp down on gatherings but i think we have to mention that there are still a sizable amount of people in this country who still support the political parties for many reasons i told logical or simply because they benefit they've been given jobs by those in power so we are expecting them to light the torch and now times now. is the worst we'll stand. so 76 yes that's exactly 67 which is 57 g.m.t. that's precise time as you say when this huge stockpile of the money not turned travelers were excluded and what killed more than 200 people just quickly what for the moment. very much in the mix of all this coronavirus of course very much again on the right. yes.
6:07 pm
we have lost all audio connection with and i will stay with these pictures as as we wait for the moment to say it's just been just a few seconds it's 6 o 7 pm 1507 g.m.t. that is the precise time when the stockpile of a 1000000 nitrate fertilizer exploded killing more than 200 people devastated swathes of the competition of course and design it was just explaining not only that we've also had years decades really of corruption and protests as rejecting that corruption rejecting the ruling class. this of course the 1st anniversary of the nonsectarian protests movements which took place a year ago the an economic crisis in a total collapse of deeply polarized society that is rife corruption i think we've got a connection but i'm saying is it just tell us about the scene that we can see that the kind and that's why. you get.
6:08 pm
tribute to those who died in this mass that they suppose. we've. been saying this is the message that we are still determined we will continue earlier to say they heard that one of the main arteries from the lebanese capital it's known as the ring on bridge because that bridge. became a front line during the protests that meant the largely peaceful anti-establishment protesters that were repeatedly beaten up by supporters of the political parties so today they went back to the spirit to give a message to those who want to defend and serve the status quo those who are afraid of change to get the message that the lebanese people should unite.
6:09 pm
not have enough public backing yes. we saw thousands take to the streets at 3. yeah we do apologize for that we've lost already a connection was a lot of mobile phones around then cutting out the signal that we've got there was an auto we're waiting for that the candle to be lit in memory of all those who died and maybe it's that they stopped part of an many in the trade fertilizer exploded on this 1st anniversary of the protest movement protesters rejecting rejecting corruption and. let's move on fighting has escalated in the conflict over the disputed region of nagorno-karabakh a week after a cease fire between i suppose john and armenia took effect as about john has accused armenia of deliberately attacking civilians in the city of gunja with a missile that killed at least 13 people i mean his defense ministry says it did
6:10 pm
not fire towards us by john so hard has this report is there seen the damage from the missile strike destroyed at least 20 buildings in gunja azerbaijan 2nd largest city of 300000 people so. we've been living in fear for days we couldn't sleep at night we hid but that was no use we're suffering a lot i wish we were dead but our children would have to live without us we believe in our state and president may god give us back our back. people hate all fall from the disputed region of nagorno-karabakh azerbaijan and armenia are fighting over but they were not spent armenia's defense ministry denies firing tools as operation adding the type of missile it's accused of using doesn't have the range to reach gunja however it later released a list of what it called legitimate targets and ganja as a right john says it has proof that the missiles came from armenia to say how.
6:11 pm
immoral our. political. and army and on the forces. in other words just because it is a nickel on the job is not as a 1st they attacked in a deliberate and discriminate manner as it were to the syrians and that you have isn't what was burst scott i mean. the same. both sides of blaming each other for violating a russian brokered truce agreed a week ago which includes a school for the detainees and bodies of those killed. since friday night's attack in gunja anina says azerbaijan's armed forces violated the humanitarian ceasefire by hitting step pan card to nagorno-karabakh on saturday as i by john's president confirmed his forces have now taken control of mold villages in foods in the south east of nagorno-karabakh armenia considers fusilli a buffer zone between nagorno-karabakh and as i abrasion insist territory that both
6:12 pm
sides of the conflict have been negotiating over for the last 26 years. and as those negotiations failed as a bridge on with turkish support pushed to take some of these territories back it's you know most pressure on the armenians have lost more than 600 fighters recently. the violence is the worst in the region since azerbaijan ethnic armenian forces went to war in the early 1990 s. the control of nagorno-karabakh allies with an eye by john has been under the control of the ethnic amini and forces. fact since the war ended in 1992. on friday armenians prime minister met soldiers being sent to the front line. i love you all i'm proud of you all i believe that you'll defend the future of your children with dignity long live the republic of armenia long live the armenian diaspora. message but there's no signs of
6:13 pm
a rest but for now civilians very sides are facing uncertain days. so i decided. well a bernard smith is in the army in couple of year yvonne but 1st let's speak to horrible hammered by john couple of back and a week on from the series what chances there are of a ceasefire actually working. well it seems that that chance is diminishing by the day if not by the hour just a short while ago we heard from the ministry of defense here in baquba that said that if that target carried several air strikes on armenian forces in occupied territories just sort of the sudden belt of the north and i go in a car about region so certainly. also when you speak to anyone around they don't believe that they will be. any you know
6:14 pm
a stop in the hostilities any time soon i spoke to several people on the streets back with some are saying well it's going to be difficult it's going to be there's going to be human cost on both sides but at this point many here at least for tell you what it's about time we just go for it and he's raised try to resolve this conflict was and for all but everyone bracing themselves for more violence maybe more 'd destruction and death so where do we look where do we hope for a peaceful resolution and what role can the international community play. i think that you mean at the moment the international community has been issuing statements calling for calm we've seen the efforts of the. group we've seen the efforts from bloody mir putin we've seen also depreciation of russia turkish president trichet do and. it seems that no one is listening really underground here
6:15 pm
certainly azerbaijan is backed by tricky in this conflict it does have. superiority so it feels strong in that respect armenia says that it will retaliate and munir also having the backing of several european countries it seems but. underground it's a demo meant a new way when it comes to azerbaijan they're getting to making territorial gains. according to the president actually they have. retaken at least 2 of those 7 regions maybe not fully but certainly made enormous again in there there is momentum when you speak to azerbaijan they will continue this fight now obviously you have things that happen like yet back in ganja. you have a big human a human cost to this war yes people at the moment here are backing their leaders and they probably also back it does seem as happening in armenia but you know do
6:16 pm
more you do every day that passes and hire a human cost you have probably the positions will become also very difficult for both leaders or a lot of thanks very much indeed the pitcher and back who let's cross to i mean as couple of europe and we'll find bernard smith so bernard you have some developments i believe. yes. minister representatives to moscow to discuss with representatives a cease fire monitoring mechanism is on the back of the initiative started by moscow to get this ceasefire going but armenia says there's areas haven't turned up and they say they suspect that it's turkey stopped as of sending any representatives now no word yet from john on whether they will or whether or if they will send a representative to moscow but certainly there is pressure here on our media to do
6:17 pm
something because it's suffering military casualties at least more than 600 army needs killed on the battlefield and it's losing territory it's losing territory that it has control since the cease fire in 1994 this is territory between nagorno-karabakh. and what armenia says is a necessary buffer zone a safe zone between john and kyra back that is territory both sides are s'posed have been talking about over the last 26 years under the auspices of this minsk group moscow paris and washington d.c. . says nothing's happened they've not got any progress and that is why with turkey's assistance now they are prosecuting this conflict to try and take back their attempt militarily meaning it says it wants to implement a cease fire and he's willing to talk about implementation right and of course what's going on the important international. possibilities and the implications of
6:18 pm
what is the broader regional geopolitical situation. well the risk is that if this escalates then russia could get pulled in russia has a an agreement with armenia as it has real the former soviet states to provide security guarantees to help it security not at the moment russia said it's not stepping in to help armenia because the battle is in nagorno-karabakh and that is internationally recognized as a johnny territory but if. the republic of armenia azerbaijan get involved directly and russia may be forced to step in and you'll have russia and turkey on opposite sides again as you already have russia and turkey on opposite sides in libya in syria so there are risks of this of this escalating and why if moscow particularly can't make the cease fire work or abandon thanks very much
6:19 pm
better with. but more still ahead on this news hour including thousands of protesters in the time come to defy government warnings and a transit shutdown. and ivory coast president begins his campaign for a controversial 3rd term as his rival seek connection boycott. the houston astros refusing to go away in their series against tampa bay peter will be here with all the action in game 6. now turkey has discovered a natural gas supply roughly equivalent to almost 10 years worth of its annual energy needs a president right at top of one says to find off the east coast of the black sea is turkey's largest ever gas discovery for ankara turkey currently imports nearly all the gas it consumes further exploration in disputed waters in the eastern

mediterranean has angered greece and cyprus the state's only speak to use a fellow bought who's a retired turkish colonel who worked on a nato base he now works as a security analysts at the turkish defense university and joins us from istanbul in the start about a welcome to the program so i think i'm right in saying that take the current imports all the gas it consumes said this is indeed a significant discovery yes of course now you'll also take a look at turkish trade deficit mostly stems from the nature of some the petrol imports from other countries for. finding the black sea region is a very important number from the torch for suspected because the state wanted for nature. almost 13000000000 dollar to russia by john and iran and it could stop producing as early as 2023 just 2 or 3 years.
6:21 pm
yeah 202300 years in who are still off the turkish public profile be it will be given to turkey something like 5. per year of the total cup us to be able to reach in $2206.00 so it will be a huge leverage for turkey not only afford the price of the nature of gas bottles at the same time so he has a goal for creating yeah i guess trading hop inside turkey for just isn't turkey not only use only its nature of gas for the trade top but also the know that there are lots of pipelines features bringing nature gas on petrol in from russia from afar by john from iraq from iran for dishes and so evil addle so what he is produce impulse to his for being a gas trading help in this area for balkan sound for europe right now let's start
6:22 pm
a good time to be building castrating hub he wondered how this keys into the world weeding itself of fossil fuels the use of gas on that scale is not compatible with a one and a half to 3 talk of the past agreement which turkey is a signatory. maggette last article for a christian story to be for for this amount of gas supply to come online it doesn't help keep the temperature of global warming just use global woman does it and turkey is a signatory to the paris agreement. that's true but in any case 38 is trying to use. you know look the clerk to. this international relations board make one i mean this isn't all lawyers a part of the perestroika agreement to really try to use the nature of gas and also . keep down its electric power generators which produce from the call for this isn't in any case it will be beneficial for the. totally sure all right
6:23 pm
use of about i appreciate your time thanks very much indeed thank you you're welcome. now let's stay with turkey which is reportedly tested its russian made missile defense system drawing criticism from the united states washington has repeatedly warned to encourage against purchasing the f. $400.00 system saying it could compromise shed nato military systems the u.s. says if confirmed the test risks jeopardizing the security relationship with turkey for pity's profit is a senior defense fellow at the international institute of strategic studies and was former director of policy planning at nato he says that turkey is playing a risky game of its placing nato alliance is in jeopardy. it's both a technological and a political problem technological because nato cannot integrate russian made weapon system in its own nato missile defense system so from a technical point of view it raises
6:24 pm
a really shoe and apart oxys turkey has been the one asking for the nato missile defense system to has as much coverage i suppose and to be obviously also partly based in in turkey turkey actually host the nato radar system that is part of these me said the fed so that's one thing the political issue is obviously its sense of a wrong signal when all the other nato allies especially seen 2014 when russia invaded ukraine how made a point of basically cutting ties technological ties with russia and defense systems so it's definitely a step in the wrong direction compared to where all the other allies are going i think what we're seeing is president ed go on doubling down on these various setit of region out policy it's not so much about the close alliance we if we threw russia because actually edwin has a complicated relation and sometimes a conflict regulation with president putin but it's about showing that turkey can
6:25 pm

6:26 pm
the police and the author it is despite the police earlier shutting down effectively the whole of bangkok closing down the roads 2 major intersections closing all of the sky china central bangkok stops and the underground and yet i think this illustrates the problem the police are facing they made threats they said that these gatherings are illegal under the new special emergency laws they said that anyone found here will be arrested and yet thousands are still coming out . the protesters are not going to push their luck they say they're going to break this up at 8 o'clock at this stage there don't seem to be any police in this area or any other security forces. and i think the protesters themselves are hoping that they can make their presence felt and then go home peacefully but after the showdown last night they're very aware that may not happen. still ahead.
