president's controversial border policies including the wall extension on the mexico border and the separation of migrant parents from their children but she was also reported to be a frequent target of the president's anger what began with fulsome praise from the president. they'll be no on the job training for kids. she is ready on day one would you say yes good. ended with a perfunctory tweet president trump giving no reason for nielsen's departure and a planned expression of thanks for his service nielsen rose to the position of chief of homeland security in december twenty seventh and in just over a year in the job she gonna criticism as the public face of trump's controversial immigration policies such as that of separating migrant children from their parents at the u.s. mexican border
a policy she denied exists has been much outcry consternation and frankly misinformation from many in the press in congress and advocacy groups ever the last few weeks that we have d.h.s.s. are intentionally doing things that are on humanitarian that are cruel immoral and disgraceful we aren't doing none of those things in her letter of resignation which was published online but she didn't mention her reasons for leaving but observers see it as a sign of conflicts in the white house as the president's rhetoric on immigration becomes increasingly strident our washington correspondent michael niggas says nielsen's resignation comes as no surprise. that nielson was finally forced out it's no big surprise for him was unhappy that he couldn't stop the border crossings at the u.s. border with mexico especially from families with children over the past two years trip was also very unhappy that he could not get his money for the big promised
wall even though he instituted the longest government shutdown in u.s. history he's also very unhappy that he couldn't continue his policy to separate my current children from their families because public opposition was just too strong and he's also very unhappy that he could not close the border down over the past week because public opposition again was too strong especially from u.s. businesses and the face of all this all these failed policies was cursed nielson his department of homeland security secretary she was the face of all those failed policies and needed this code right now and that's why he decided to finally get rid of her and force her out. let's take a look at some of the other stories making headlines around the world today libya's u.n. backed government says it has launched a counter offensive against the militia under general. that's after he launched an offensive to see the capital tripoli at least twenty one people have been killed in
clashes so far united states has called for an immediate halt to the file. british prime minister theresa may says there's still a chance that her government could reach a compromise with the opposition labor party on a break deal leaders are expected to hear details of a plan at an emergency summit on wednesday u.k. is slated to leave the european union on friday. in brazil thousands of supporters protested on sunday outside the jail where former brazilian president we see not children that is still there is being held on the anniversary of his in-car incarceration many chanted free lula using his popular nick de silva is serving a twelve year sentence for corruption and money lost. at a large explosion in a warehouse in yemen's capital saana killed at least thirteen people including seven children more than one hundred people wounded who the rebels from seize control of incompetent twenty fourteen said the saudi led coalition had targeted
the warehouse with an air strike the coalition denied carrying out any strikes in the area. crucial elections in israel are now just a day away and there's no telling whether prime minister binyamin netanyahu will manage to stay in office he faces a stiff challenge from a former military general centrist benny gantz over the weekend netanyahu pulled out what many consider a sort of trump card to further his status with those on the far right a promise to annex jewish settlements in the occupied west bank election has turned into a neck and neck race. benyamin netanyahu versus spending against blue and white party is resurrection is said to be a tight race with voters remaining split including here in this close restore in jerusalem ilana benyamin hopes to be netanyahu it's every phone calls to prime
minister who form the next government she can see any i'll turn it. on. i think he has a great team they're doing fine and if baby is elected i will sleep well at night even move towards a safe future for me from my sons and grandsons. another four years of may be unthinkable for this young student guggenheim voted for netanyahu is likud party in the previous elections but this time his go to the new blue and white party headed by former army chief of staff benny gantz i think the time is coming though you serve his country well i think after ten for years the really the time has come to switch parties and have one white take the premiership and move on to the hopefully better and more secure places. when israelis go to the polls on tuesday they have a wide range of issues to consider and a record number of parties to choose from economy and security are usually the top
priorities for voters but this election is slightly different. in essence these are vital issues for israelis but they're not necessarily the big determinants of votes because we have a situation where the voters focusing primarily on the issue of netanyahu his ten year long governance over israeli society thirteen years in total and the corruption charges against him. despite facing an indictment on a string of corruption charges netanyahu can still count on a strong voter base. he campaigned on social media and by meeting foreign leaders with a clear message he's the only one who can keep israel safe and represent the country's interests abroad. meanwhile benny guns and his team of former army generals have been touring the country with the centrist blue and white party has been ahead of the likud in almost all opinion polls. in a small community in southern israel guns who served as military chief under
netanyahu appears to voters that only his party can move the country forward. prime minister netanyahu and his messages a busy dividing people and using incitement in order to survive we have busy reinforcing the security of israel and working towards a better future for our children. pulses predicted gunther netanyahu will compete next to me but netanyahu might have the upper hand to form a writing coalition with smaller rightwing parties. he has tanya kramer who filed that report joins us now from jerusalem tanya mr netanyahu has made a last minute election promise to annex settlements in the west bank could that tip the scales in his favor. well i think his trying to reach out to this nationalist base and basically saying that rather than voting maybe for as some of
his potential smaller coalition partners smaller parties set up an extension they should rather vote to the extent that these parties might not then make it over the election especially because every vote that goes to a smaller party would be lost for then he could and he's a bit under pressure because in all the polls leading up to election day at the blue and white party house that the polls actually if he tossed all those polls that have not always been accurate having said that most pollsters predict that benyamin netanyahu has more possibilities in wider fighting bloc to form a coalition but i think mr netanyahu doesn't want to take an actual census to do is and he wrote what can you tell us about some of nessun yahoos challengers in this election. well the main talent and he turns out to be benny guns and his new blue and white party that has they have formed this together with
essentialist yes a tea party and both leaders but he guns is number one and in that heat it's number two would actually rotate the premiership if they would be successful now the question is you know whether they will be garnering enough votes to put to sway voters to vote for the most centrist approach to have been saying that they. want to unite the country they want to get away from the polarizing politics of prime minister netanyahu so for many people had hoped as actually they always say anything but bibi as mr netanyahu has called it because of his to go topless because at the end certainty but also because he has been a prime minister for a very long time and the other people who is saying well i continue to vote for the likud and it's a it's a vote for parties after all but that's very personalized i want to continue to go to that you could and i want to see a prime minister netanyahu and not the time. when you thank you so much for that
tanya kramer in jerusalem. now an effort to advance far right ideology here in europe steve bannon the former chief strategist and donald trump's white house gave his blessing to a new training center for populist european politicians it's partially hidden in a remote to tele and village but bennett is working to spread his message across the continent. this form a ministry in trees altie in the hills of central italy has been revived with a new mission here benjamin hardwell has launched a conservative center called the institute for human dignity he wants to draw together christians and jews and fight against islamic fundamentalism young politicians will come to terms altie and trained to become right wing populists resulting in the next generation is going to become the global headquarters of the
fight to defend the judeo christian basis of western civilization so that's just not just here in europe but right across the world. vision has won the support of steve bannon the former advisor to u.s. president donald trump the two devout catholics have met frequently in rome. i'm just honored used to help out and you know what i'm trying to do is add maybe a little organizational ability and and in to bring in donors faculty people i would know throughout the world they could teach than it is now trying to bring together right wing parties from across europe into a unified group called the movement he's hoping for a surge of support in the upcoming european elections this may because the party was nationalists saw it as a great politician a great message and now it is correct and that's why it's only because maybe this is the first day when all the nations
a stunning victory. some observers are concerned about the alliance between bannon's movement and the conservative training academy. was against. the point that brings them together is an obsession with identity politics. yes it increased mission they say we are christians in the west and europe is based on judeo christian values which we have to defend against an invasion it's tied to get there is also resistance in trees altie many residents don't want baron and his acolytes in the village the monastery is a pilgrimage destination that attract tourists opponents want the italian government to prevent it being turned into a right wing training camp. why is a cultural location in our village being used for an ideological project.
of the monastery entries altie is being used as the foundation for a movement but one hundred scientists deals with whose money is it being funded to what end hon wells plan is clear his center interests altie should become a launch pad for right wing populism across europe he plans to open the doors to his first students this summer. rwanda has begun one hundred days of mourning for those slaughtered in the genocide that began twenty five years ago today president paul kagame me led a ceremony in the capital kigali commemorating the lives of the more than eight hundred thousand ethnic tutsis and moderate hutus who were killed in a span of just one hundred days cami pledge that rwandans would never again turn against one another. remembering run does dead on the day of the brutal and renter's killing began twenty five years ago president could go and ten heads of state at the kigali genocide memorial the burial place of over two hundred fifty
