way see on motorbikes president joker would those condemned the violence describing it as an act of terrorism and saying everyone should be able to worship freely without fear. but it happened during the shift change of prayer the attacker was trying to enter a church and one of our stuff was suspicious when the attacker was trying to stand near the gate and later the bomb exploded. just jacobs's southeast asia security and political risk analyst he is joining us live by skype from singapore it's good to have you with us on jazeera it is of course just a few hours since this has happened any indication who night have carried out this attack there has been no immediate claim of responsibility and i guess we're going to have to wait for a definite answer however the catch is that routinely targeted by numerous militia is in the scripts then to maisha for example in 20183 churches were attacked by supporters of the. j.d.
1:03 pm
a group that was formed by a radical preacher called. it is important to note isn't it that these individuals on the motorbike actually were stopped at the gates and then exploded the device so the device was exploded had they actually got into the cathedral itself which seems to have been the intention things could have been much worse what does that tell us about the level of security that is around places of worship particularly at this time of year generally security forces and local security guards outside of religious to see this facility is aware of the threat at this by militant islamists to religious facilities. it is usually quite robust unfortunately the determination of the attack is persists. there is going to be of course an investigation into what has happened one would imagine that the government is going to be saying that it is doing everything it can to protect
1:04 pm
people but there are clearly still deep rooted underlying issues that need to be addressed to stop attacks like this i suppose so i think that the government and the security forces in indonesia generally by and large do a good job he'd see that in a february about 20 suspected j.t. members from self were arrested. and the police have been quite vigilant throughout 2020 even with the pandemic raging i think they've arrested about 200 or so suspected militants throughout the country so they are doing what is required of them but there will always be individuals given that these are clandestine organizations that operate in diffuse cells. always ones that will slip through the cracks unfortunately and yes you're right more to be done about the spread of extremist ideology in the country just jake and we appreciate you being with us
1:05 pm
a knowledge of thanks very much indeed for joining us thank you ok i want to bring in jessica washington she's joining us live now from jakarta jessica just bring us up to date with what we know about the attack itself. well what we've learned just in recent hours is that at least 19 people were injured in the attack both of the 2 bombers now deceased one male and one female we still do not know which specific network was responsible for this attack and we don't yet know the motivation for this attack authorities are looking into the prospect of whether this attack was retaliation in light of the recent arrests that have been made against some of these violent groups in indonesia and what we do know about the group that julian jacob just mentioned j. adey they do have a history of these attacks involving spouses involving families so this group in particular will be looked at but we do not yet know if they are responsible for
1:06 pm
this attack we heard recently from the president president djoko widow who called on every indonesian to work together to combat these violent attacks in indonesia police are still continuing their investigations into how this attack happened but as was mentioned earlier the security landscape in indonesia has really significantly changed it doesn't mean the threat has gone right down to 0 the threat does still exist but at a much lower level than in say the early 2000 that's why we see these more small scale attacks with lower number of casualties and in many cases the fatality is limited to the bombers themselves and that is really recognition of indonesia's progress but of course the individuals in that cathedral today must be traumatized and and really fearful of what they experienced today in the indonesian government says it is committed to protecting indonesians to protecting the freedom to worship in indonesia and will increase security around these places of worship in the
1:07 pm
coming days jessica those very much indeed those jurors are washington talking to us from jakarta. well one day after a brutal violence and me and mother killed 114 people protesters have turned out again across the country determined to continue their fight against the military coup earlier security forces fired on locals trying to put out a fire in mandalay at least 60 homes were destroyed in the blaze overnight military chiefs from the us and many of its allies were issued a rare joint statement denouncing nehemiah security forces saying they should be protecting and not harming the people dozens of funerals are being held across the country on sunday meanwhile demonstrators in taiwan a rally in to show their support for protesters hundreds have been gathering in taipei's liberty square for the past few sundays they pray for those who've been killed in the crackdown and they condemn the military coup well tony jenkins
1:08 pm
seizing tilley chang is across the border in bangkok he's joining us live so less than 24 hours since the most violent time since the the coup began and yet the protests are still going on. there and we've seen this again and again the military step up the severity of the cranks downs they start employing more brutal tactics more brutal weapons we see the death toll increase and yet the protesters still come out they are the day after day they aren't in it's many numbers today certainly they are keeping i think to the bank streets we've seen a new tactic of merging among the protesters to come out very early in the morning in the hope of avoiding meeting with the security services but they are making their presence felt and they're walking around and chanting the same chance they've been chanting since the military coup and that is that they want power to be returned to the people and they want their leaders their elected leaders to be
1:09 pm
released from detention this stage however that doesn't seem to be happening the military or the military in the police the security services still employing these tactics we understand there's been shooting on the streets of mandalay. as you mentioned earlier there was a fire overnight. local residents in the p.g. township area trying to extinguish their fire they were fired upon and couldn't get there until the blaze was so out of control of the burned down 60 houses today people have been trying to get supplies to that area where people have lost all their possessions they have no shelter in their food they need medical supplies but people haven't even been able to get there to deliver that because the security services have the area under control so i think we can see you know these 2 sides bussing heads again and again and i think this was the great concern that this was a situation was just which was just going to deteriorate and after the bloodletting
1:10 pm
of yesterday it seems that that situation just continues to freefall and we are seeing increasing international condemnation where we're talking about military troops in the u.s. and its allies condemning this the actions of miramar security forces this doesn't seem to have any impact does it on the military and the way that it's carrying out its actions on the streets of me or more. again i think this is the concern the beginning the we would be heading back into a period as we saw in the eighty's as research in the ninety's the early 2000. millet militants in acted with impunity and cast aside the condemnation that came from overseas we've seen sanctions in place before that has been really concerned that they have certain lifelines we saw yesterday the armed forces parade representation from important neighbors like tion and china india pakistan
1:11 pm
bangladesh. and also russia which send ministerial delegation the deputy defense minister and i think the feeling is amongst the armed forces that with these connections still strong they will be able to survive this is i think the other problem here is that this is a 0 sum game there the space for compromise on both sides has shrunk and shrunk and is we see the list of fatalities growing it appears to be even smaller and just speaking to people inside myanmar at the moment you can hear that sort of visceral hate crystallizing and people who i spoke to a few weeks ago who were saying they were looking for some kind of compromise they were looking for some kind of way or now they're just talking about hate and death and it's hardly surprising seeing the bloodletting that's happening on the streets
1:12 pm
tony chang bring us up to date from bangkok i want to bring in shore when he is the executive director of burma human rights network is joining us live by skype from london so it seems as though sanctions don't appear to me making much difference also this united condemnation from the u.s. military and its allies doesn't seem to make much of a dent with the the me and more military as well what do you think it's going to take for the military in miramar to stop killing people in the streets. well thanks for having me today here it is you see that yesterday scenario is not a crackdown is just a massacre and this is happening all everything happening in washington and un is you see seems to be a failure and fail again protect a failed ring of people in 2017 and now we have failed to protect the civilians in burma this is one of the main duty for u.n. to protect civilians in you know from this. regarding the military you know
1:13 pm
we we welcome that the u.s. u.k. and u.s. now you know getting the economic in 1st. and this is also affecting in significantly on the inside take the next inside the circle and we are asking international community what arms and body can you see that yesterday also frequently seen that the military is using air power to bomb the civilian villages in towns and in control area so we are asking for a no fly zone to impose in those areas we've got to use the u.n. must prove the u.n. is alive u.n. is functioning in u.s. u.n. has the capability to protect the city. you referred to bringing in an arms embargo and yet miramar as military if i understand it correctly is backed by russia is backed by china 2 of the there are others as well all of whom are selling weapons to mean more russia particularly it sounds as though calling for an arms embargo isn't actually going to make much of
1:14 pm
a difference if these countries continue to give me and mark the power that it needs in military terms. you see this is the action is not only we shouldn't look at it one angle well if you talk about the one angle only on arms embargo of course you may you know you may not be that effective but when you combine with the action like arms embargo no plays all economic sanctions these are the going to effect and this will be you know. bring down that route less the regime because you see that this military regime is not as strong as as we have seen in the past in other part of the world that you know the dictator of course china and russia backing them but china and russia will not risk what them everything used because china has a lot of interest in which we love music your bait but you know by supporting the. it's going to be concerning there was tony was mentioning that this has happened before it happened there only to thousands we've seen this before and as tony was
1:15 pm
was describing it the military essentially just cast aside whatever concerns the rest of the world had and carry out carry on doing what it was doing that doesn't really give the current situation a lot of hope you see that the regarding the sanction there are a lot of myths and there are a lot of assumptions but what we see from inside it is essential is war because the main aim of the controlling power if to to obtain well controlling power that's the main goal for them once they're well is going going taking away from them and they're not achieving their goal then this is a very effective. when we appreciate your joining us joe when is executive director of burma human rights network and we appreciate you being with us on jazeera thank you. thank you buddy more ahead on the news including get out and enjoy your freedom a bold call from the governor of the u.s. state where more than 13000 people have died from coronavirus. and signs of

movement to the promise that a mega ship a block in one of the world's busiest waterways could be dislodged within days. and from refugee to heavyweight champion of the world that's coming sports with peter. the french energy giant to tal has halted operations in mozambique after an attack on the northern town of palma fighting's been going on there for 5 days nearly $200.00 people including foreign nationals are trapped in the hotel the reuters news agency is reporting some civilians who tried to escape have been killed fighting broke out in northern mozambique in 2017 since then hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced in capital godall province palma had been seen as a safe haven because it's near multi-billion dollar gas projects with heightened
1:17 pm
security as many as $70000.00 people fled from other areas to the town they've now been displaced again on wednesday on groups entered palma forcing many to take shelter in the hotel that includes foreigners who worked in the gas project owned by a french company to tell there are reports of boats coming into shore to rescue those escaping the fighting and taking them to the provincial capital pemba well how to assess joining us now from karachi in neighboring zimbabwe what more do we know about what's going on in palma. well communication in parma is still down so getting information that we can verify independently is still difficult but what we know so far from officials in the town is that this area tech happened wednesday off to noon armed groups into the town from different directions it seems like this was a coordinated attack they targeted a bank they targeted a business center and then they also went and targeted other areas within the
1:18 pm
actual town people in the town and in a nearby village slid into a bush in the area some people mainly mozambican v.i.p.'s and foreigners holed up in a hotel there we told that some of them have since been evacuated the attack happened literally hours after the french company to tell announced that is using gas operations there because things have been relatively quiet so there's a theory that the attack could have something to do with that but there's no other theory that suggests that because of being quiet for a while humanitarian workers were able to bring in food and medicines in to the area to help people who knew those services so there's a theory that maybe these armed groups maybe these insurgents were also targeting those supplies as well as movement mozambique having to deal with this on and so on or is it getting help from elsewhere. it's been getting help from what we've known for the past few months or so of these been calls from these dashing means you to try and assist mozambique what we know for example so that
1:19 pm
every cuban government is saying it's going to beef up staff in the embassy in the capital market they're saying that those people are going to try to evacuate south africans and i suppose other people who may be trapped in part of the united states has said states will forces will try and help train the mozambican army portugal the former colonial power has committed to change the mozambicans our report south africans are also training military officials in mozambique in terms of the region they've been meetings on and or virtually or in person or african leaders in southern africa have been meeting trying to help them be after every meeting saying there is a plan but they haven't said what that plan is going to be so i'm in a stake elating if it's going to be some kind of military intervention south africa the biggest economy in the region people assume it has the equipment could go in and some of the countries of the region grosso help south africa help mozambique the concern now for humanitarian workers is that any military intervention of
1:20 pm
course is going to affect the people on the ground the mozambican locals who are running for their lives some of that we've been told are trying to make it to pym by the provincial capital to join thousands of others who've been fleeing from other parts of northern missouri and week the place is getting crowded so government officials and humanitarian workers are trying to move some of those people from pinball so other parts of the country with relief to be safer thanks very much indeed how can we are talking to us from zimbabwe. well mexico has increased its official covert 1000 death toll by nearly 60 percent the government said on saturday the real number of coronavirus deaths is more than 321000 not 200 in $1000.00 as previously reported mexico's testing rate is low and its health care system is overwhelmed that means many people are dying at home without being tested. meanwhile chile has launched its
1:21 pm
strictest coronavirus lockdown yet to cover rising cases there more than 80 percent of the population is under mandatory isolation the president says is necessary to ease pressure on the health care system about 40 percent of the population has been vaccinated and that's more than any other latin american nation even t.q. anomaly that we have restricted transit through drop downs and cemetery controls today more than 16000000 countrymen around the core and train we are fully aware of the difficulties and 2nd for us is that this major means to july and families but to protect health to protect the lives of all our citizens is definitely our 1st priority the leader of the venezuelan opposition says he's tested positive for covert 19 united on twitter saying he has mild symptoms and is in isolation also said he was concerned by the number of infections in venezuela more than 155000 cases and over 1550 deaths have been reported in

the us the numbers are still rising health officials fear with states having much autonomy in dealing with the pandemic the country could face another surge florida's republican governor has faced criticism for refusing to shut down the economy or make it compulsory to wear mosques now he says the state's economy is booming and his approach was right all along and he gallacher reports from miami. businesses shouted deserted streets and strict measures in tackling a global pandemic for most states in the u.s. these are familiar scenes but in florida it's a different picture there have been no statewide code restrictions for more than 6 months with restaurants and beaches open at full capacity republican governor ronda santa says his decisions which critics accuse of flying in the face of science based advice were right we actually have people opening new businesses here we
1:23 pm
actually have people hiring people our employment rates much less than the national average in way less than a lot of the walk down states like california new york today though we did we can build off this momentum that momentum is obvious in places like miami where tech finance companies and restaurants and relocating unemployment here is also lower than states like new york and california but encouraging people to come to florida has consequences oh. the authorities in miami beach put a curfew in place after thousands of revelers many masculists flocked to beaches and bars the unusual move came after officials decided spring break crowds posed a serious risk to public health and security there has been gun play opened brawling and other hazards and all that in the midst of a pandemic where mask usage and physical distance thing seems like an afterthought if that so we've had to implement measures we would prefer not to deploy but must the real metric that matters here is the state's reaction to covert 19 death rate
1:24 pm
per capita in florida places it 24th in the nation or right in the middle of a 30000 people have died and variants of covert 900 still pose a serious threat gov decided to spoil the policies have been vindicated some think it's too soon to say tourists a still flocking to the state driven in part by loose restrictions cheap flights and covert fatigue but economists say it may be years before the true cause. asked is known we have. a leave lens that we were going to have people knew this is part of the reason why they did come to florida from great. and again you cannot really measure the economics until you figure out a what is it constant terms of lives what has the constant terms of security. and so on as the u.s. heads towards an uneasy return to normalcy challenges remain for the entire nation
1:25 pm
florida may have fared better than expected but the u.s. death rate remains among the highest in the world and gallacher al-jazeera miami florida a un special committee is urging israel to fulfill its responsibility to ensure palestinians are vaccinated against coronavirus groups expressed concern over reports that israel has been donating vaccines overseas while failing to protect the health of people in the occupied territory and searching israel as an occupying power to comply with its obligations under international law israel has the world's highest rate of vaccinations ok let's go back to our story about mozambique in the conflict in the northern colorado god of province as a lovaza is a senior researcher at the institute for security studies in pretoria she's joining us from johannesburg by skype it's good to have you with us on al jazeera i was talking to an analyst yesterday about this and she was saying that there had been an over focus on the fact that these groups could be linked to i saw but actually
1:26 pm
this she was saying that that was an oversimplification and there were more local issues at play here can you talk us through what the issues are. yes i think so i agree we at the institute for security studies really have been following this for a couple of years now since the industry in the 17 and it seems very clear that. even the if. people of even recognize some of the attack as it's not. i think the thesis that this is a foreign terrorist organization you know it's really something that. we also have questioned in they are links with these let me state but in terms of the root causes of the insurgency at think from all the field research and studies that have been done in kabul don't guard it it's really
1:27 pm
a toxic mix of the reus issues it is a problem it's the northernmost brahmans of mozambique that is marginalised people feel frustrated they have been people of the land. of mining activities they have ruby mines specifically and then we need was announced that the biggest increase made on the african continent these last few decades were going to come to coverdell guarded that's when almost the you know it it exploded it. and so i don't know if you can still hear me i can yes what i want to limit i want to jump in because there was one point that the analysts made yesterday as well that her concern was also that these armed groups seemed to be getting guidance from as she put it experts in the other fighting that has turned the emphasis here like the chinese there is that the focus of of
1:28 pm
fighting. and has made it made them stronger and they seem to be more organized do you think that that is a reasonable concern and if that is the case how do you see this playing out. sorry what are you saying what is the reasonable come sent i was just asking you that what the analysts that i was speaking to yesterday had made the point that her concern was that this attack particularly seemed to be very well organized and her concern was that they that these armed groups were actually getting training and direction from experts as she put it in guerrilla fighting do you think that that's a correct assessment and if it is what are your concerns about how this could play out. it it was a very sophisticated well planned attack that is very true and the mozambican defense forces clearly were not up to predicting the citizens in palma and all the
1:29 pm
intelligence reports up to now were saying that. someone was almost surrounded these last couple of weeks and that so many attacks on villagers that it was expected but as i say intelligence from. here in south africa it seemed clear the film is in a very dangerous and vulnerable situation so going forward definitely the presence in palmer there from the peninsula are these gas projects are being threatened. they are more than a $1600.00 expect workers from south africa of course being close by. that to use the opportunity of job creation and you know it's a services infrastructure jason to the gas projects in that area i wrote an article last year at the end of last year where i spoke to. a business people saying you know we have a huge energy crisis the whole region we have an unemployment crisis here is an
1:30 pm
opportunity couple of months later i think that you know we can. not only rule out that opportunity but also for mozambicans and for most and we get self which is the one of the poorest countries on the continent to be able to really pin effect from this these gas projects that all well underway some of the aim and then different phases but some of them have now of course been put on hold but the total project which is worth about $20000000000.00 u.s. dollars have been going ahead and i think as you said in your report the total was going to. restart operations off to only a few weeks of it's going into stop and now again obviously after the spot my attack has now hole to operation game so. a lot of others are and we're going to have to leave it there because time is unfortunate is running away with us but we
