4:09 pm
it is very difficult to be able to differentiate between normal religious coming back from bombs, you know, in comparison to managers who probably on that most instances. and in this case, it was doing data and it wasn't even a docket was for being here, where in the semester and people are still visible. so they have said it is a case of mistaken identity, but people here aren't buying it and, and i'll bet they're not mano, think we need to understand more about the background, the situation to knock a lot because it's not a part of india we hear about very often i'm trying to understand the, the nature of people's relationship with the army and with officials. they're okay . as you mentioned, magland has been seeking is independence from india, for, from in, since time immemorial seems to british of india. and with the years and years of suppression of the naga movement, we have now come to
4:10 pm
a point after decades of struggle that is probably safer to integrate with india since we are we've been. we've been suppressed for a long time. however, once in a while, we have incidents like this, which is the result are asked by don't with many people aware of it, but parts of india like in the northeast where we have met in see, or we have those kind of a crazy and julian because she, you have a certain that there is a certain special actually asked by that is the amount of hours special forces act that has been there has been no there in the states like this for the longest time . and this gives the security forces. you know, the full, the, there is no accountability they can under this act making a fire and they can should be blessed side at will if there is even a speck of suspicion. so and because why was this one to read? holton sorry to interrupt you. why is there
4:11 pm
a special power act like that which is so violent and, and so, you know, seemingly extreme, certainly to outsiders. exactly. exactly. india is a democracy country and we believe and we follow the institution. does the institution is very, very strong. the marketing institution, and yet it is surprising that after years and years and years of a, you know, going to your stocks and doctor b this bowers, this special powers act is still prevalent in states like this. and we have no idea . we have been fighting for to repeal such act. you must have heard about the money for a women's, you know, her nicky parade. do protest against the killing of a young woman wanna rama. so this has been going on for the longest diamond. this is the reason why yesterday the villagers homeless villagers, an arm bridges, innocent villages going about their work, where fire won out a single question in broad daylight. so this is something you know, the government,
4:12 pm
india should actually think and analyze as to why after so many years of talking about the degree she and b, those regions are still glad i'm glad. under digital, you know, where a person under the suspicion of being a 1000000 or having 1000000 on dash, can the gun down, you know, we're 29 or one know that we really appreciate your time and, and explaining to us the situation there and, and nugget, and thank you so much for your time. okay. now rival rallies are taking place in france for and against the far right presidential candidate, eric zimmer. thousands are in paris to oppose mood who is holding his 1st campaign rally just outside the capital. dozens of trade unions and civil society groups of coal for people to join the protest. there is a more, a well known writer in media personality known for provocative right wing views on a psalm immigration feminism. a poll before he declared his candidacy suggests that

4:14 pm
know what his campaign platform or life, but his opinions, as i said, all very well known and for all he is anti immigration. he's anti islamic in the halls about a noisy or a deporting muslim. he has even cost control to see amongst the jewish community sci fi, trying to glorify from world war to vicky cooperation. this regime saying that in fact, this is the regime, the safe juice when it comes to women. and he says that biologically incapable of leadership and i'm much better suited to being in the home as heaven may cause. and therefore barren kills and st. highly controversial that he thinks he can win in this race for what the process is say is that he is a danger to democracy. you mentioned the fact natasha, that he has no political experience. does that affects his chances in the right. i mean, i think we've seen in plenty of other countries that experience doesn't necessarily matters well indeed and you know, a year ago,
4:15 pm
if you had said here in the area, the more television personality, if you like, was going to be running for the president who election well, many people want to leave to, but over the past few weeks we have seen is a real media frenzy around. the fact is more decided to take part in the presidential race and certainly put them in the front lights on a couple of months back. he was in opinion polls opinions also suggesting that he could be the far right political party read, leave the marine the pen, and find himself in a 2nd round. runaway against the french presence in minute micro and recent weeks has to be said, he's racing. and he slid for a number of reasons, including a number of gas. he is may, he made a very c gesture to a woman in the southern city of mount phase was very badly looked upon by many people who might want to support him. he did a high profile television interview, which was widely criticized. he was seen as having performed very well. he also has
4:16 pm
the issue that he is trying to reach conservative traditional supporters the far right. but they now have their own candidate because on the republic of the pop, the anointed pet presses that candidates, she said it's not been propelled into the spotlights and is really looking to attract some of the voters. but he is also looking to attract whether or not people say, well in the weeks to come, we'll have to say and tell me about president him. i knew my crown at the moment. what sort of levels of popularity does he have going into another election? well in the past week's opinion, full suggested manual mcgraw would certainly be in the 2nd round. that would probably when it, his polling rating seems to be consistently relatively high. he's in, you might say, a comfortable position for this election, which is now 4 months away. however,
4:17 pm
we know that that can change it and moment that could be a crisis which could change the course of the selection. and also i said now be could likely face as well. this conservative kinds of a battery. chris many are saying that she says, many of the i get the campaign ideas that amount of micro my might also share things like appealing to big business, big firm on immigration. so be interesting to see how she will have to position himself visa, a conservative candidate, who may well shape up to be his main concerns. tasha butler in paris today. thank you for that update. now, 5 people are reported to been killed in mean mas largest city after security forces run the vehicle into a group of protesters. dozens more were injured during the anti coo demonstration and young gone, the so called flash mall. bradley was targeted just minutes after it began. there have been anti government rally rallies across me in my since the military coup. in
4:18 pm
february, tony chang with more from bangkok. well, the supposed to have been a very swift reaction to the flash mob that hit the streets about mid morning in came in dung districts are which is in central yang on just a few streets away from the iconic troy. the gone for go to the crowd, had just assembled. and if you can see in videos posted on social media, a and armored track appears to move in very quickly from behind at speed powering straightened to them 5 reported to have died dozens more injured bodies lying on the street. you can see in the aftermath it does appear to fitz or so the pattern that we've seen emerging a protest as who still wants to maintain their presence on the streets. and there are visible objections to the queue that happened back in february, but very aware that the security services are going to crack down harshly with very little thought for the preservation of life. so that they're doing this very quickly in, in younger and other big cities across myanmar. but clearly in this instance,
4:19 pm
the security services were on the scene reacted very quickly. and again, with very little thought for life. and i think it's just an illustration of how much these people are taking their lives into their hands, even protesting for just a few minutes as clearly costing their lives on this occasion. we are nearly 90 minutes past this news on his what's coming up. why a cuban seeking refuge in greece? despite all the challenges we'll have a report from there. also, your sports news is australia's new captain named his team for the 1st ashes test against england. ah, the united states and a group of 20 other western nations have condemned the taliban for suspected killings and forced disappearances of former members of afghan security forces. this is after a report from human rights watch, documented the killings or disappearance of 47 former military personnel,
4:20 pm
and more than a 100 government officials. rob mcbride has more on that joint statement from cobble all stems from the human rights report that came out last week. detailing the cases of more than a 100 members of the full, the security of forces of the previous administration. that since the takeover by the taliban have either been killed, it says or have simply disappeared. now it says says that these words were carried out over a period of weeks that sometimes the taliban would have been using employment records to track down these form members. or in some cases it said actually trick them into coming forward. declaiming amnesty, the only to identify themselves, give themselves away, and then to be targeted. now, these allocations are not particularly new. we have had a number of allegations of human rights abuses of potentially war crimes by the taliban, especially in the run up to it's take over during the take over itself,
4:21 pm
often backed up by what would appear to be documentary evidence from social media and so on. but these allegations refer strictly to these crimes edge crimes that happened since the takeover and also that they were condone by the taliban itself. now that is particularly damaging because it says that while local commanders carried out on many cases, these crimes, it had the knowledge and was condoned by the taliban itself. and the taliban, they have denied these allegations. they said they will look into individual cases, but they have had deniability because of course the taliban is not a single structure with a well disciplined hierarchy. while at leadership is here, many of the taliban groups in provinces do work with a certain amount of ptolemy and it does have that ability. well, this report says that the leadership knew about it and condoned these apparent crimes. that francis says visited a camp for asylum seekers in greece to hear about their hardships and suffering.
