i'm rebecca ritter's welcome to the program man maurice facing condemnation from across the world after dozens of people were killed saturday by security forces children are among the dead 12 nations released a joint statement denouncing the bloodshed which happened on forces holiday it was the deadliest day since pro-democracy protests began in early february more than 400 people have been killed since the army seized power from civilian later on sun suchi. journalist dave green about me is following that story from kuala lumpur and joins me now and dave this is quite an alarming escalation of force the military clearly trying to deter those protesters through sheer if it will it work.
this movement against the military coup is not going to stop both sides are basically just part of me here and the demonstrators just serious at all the killings more than 100 people killed yesterday they're serious of the one time raids in the way this military is trying to terrorize the civilian population now today we're seeing funerals for some of the people who were killed yesterday more protests today at spots across the country now demonstrators have changed some of their tactics in recent weeks you're seeing more demonstrations taking place before dog some demonstrators tried hoping that avoids confrontations with the military but then other demonstrators have radicalized and want to take on the military head on some of them have resorted to. makeshift rifles molotov cocktails to throw at the military and then what's really been the most successful part of this movement against a military coup so far is going to continue and that's the work stoppage so many government workers using to work for this military government that's been the most
successful part not will all come to think of having the opposite effect and this sort of clampdown but it's also been a lot of international condemnation after the layoff to saturday's bloodshed and calls for more but is that enough will it change anything it is not going to change the directions of the military generals because this has absolutely no moral compass and as bad as yesterday was with more than a 100 people killed it could get far worse keep in mind this is the same army to me i'm army that killed in a span of a few months according to un investigators more than 10000 rohingya muslims just a few years ago and if the who decides are going to have to go get that hard against the general population i mean m.r. then they are prepared to do it this international condemnation is not going to get the generals to change course they've been about journalist in kuala lumpur thanks so much time. i suspect it is the most insurgent group has seized the northern
mozambique town of palma this comes after days of fighting forced hundreds of thousands of people to flee local media say several people were killed during the conflict exact numbers have not been verified as communication networks down in the area and nearby natural gas project from french company to town has been forced to suspend operations the project has been stalled by repeated attacks in the region which has been plagued by violence since 27 tane. well correspondent adrian creature was in mozambique before the fighting began and following the events from cape town adrian what more can you tell us about the attack at this point at this point 5 still seeming to be ongoing the city is besieged by these lists with many people trapped residents and foreigners south african media has reported that at least one south african was killed and several are still missing there were
apparently embers as they were trying to leave their hotel with several vehicles but at this point it is very difficult to confirm information from there the attacks have been going on since wednesday and from that day the phone network went off so we have very little information and the government so far has only been to confirm that there is an attack but no more details give us a bit of the bigger picture than what's happening right now in mozambique. so locals there called the group although they have nothing to do with al-shabaab in somalia but the group basically started very similar to what we've seen in northeastern nigeria very poor part of the country a lot of people are unhappy that the government is not doing anything and these groups that where more and more radicalized and got more and more people supporting them the government has been downplaying the issue and when things spiraled out of control they still try to block access for journalists for n.g.o.s until we reach a situation that we have now whereby we've seen many attacks in the past month villages where text when i was there had the most gruesome stories from residents
fleeing beheadings of civilians children kidnapped terrible stories that by the stations not even clear what this group really wants it is likely that it's much more about power and access to resources than it is about religion what impact will these attacks have and the decision of course by the french company to town to withdraw. it would be a disaster for the government to be frank with them because the 6 poorest country in the world and the government has been hoping to get mess of resources from the gas exploitation there were budgeting about $96000000000.00 income within the next 25 years and really stands by the decision and they will not come back which is not so unlikely at this point this is going to be a disaster for the development of mozambique. adrian creation point interest thank you. now let's take a look at some other stories making headlines around the world police in belarus

a lot of mistakes but we can't say what they are now the only factors we can be sure of now are the wind and the sand story. those are not the only factors like i said but the rest will become clear in the investigation. but while experts investigate further the ship still has to be freed 20000 tons of sand have been removed from the area around the bow and 9000 tons of ballast water had been pumped out in order to lighten the vessel the operation has so far been unsuccessful but 2 more tugs are on their way if they can't move it the next step will be to unload cargo. is the issue of lightning the load is of course planned 3 or the 3rd scenario which we hope not to reach. but if we need to we will have ships with cranes empty container ships with cranes that can remove the containers one by one off the ship and put them in the other vessel until we empty the whole
