above but was protected by the crowds below. this friday the canvas moved three hundred meters closer to israel the ambition is that when these protests climax on may the fifteenth these towns will be the border between gaza and israel but after four weeks now of demonstrations there's been nothing in the way of concessions from the israelis that would improve the daily life of palestinians living in gaza . furnished with al-jazeera cars. israel's defense minister says hamas are wasting their time trying to gain the upper hand in the conflict and. remove. we have all the support from the army from the chief of staff and everybody that something the other side must understand there is a determined and trained army behind which are determined people support the army and here to there are residents of communities adjacent to gaza who are determined and ready to give all their bridge to the army this combination can't be beaten and

12:06 am
case the results show that they have not crossed these red lines. and he said neither sides generals would be drawn into open conflict in syria. i'm sure but neither president putin nor president drop will allow this to happen they are after all leaders who are elected by their people and there was sponsible to those people for peace and calm. diplomatically russia can afford to attempt a pause in hostilities with the us is on the ground much is going its allies way following the fall of eastern ghouta the syrian government forces damascus is moving against the remaining besieged enclaves of rebel activity one by one therefore. the un has envoy to syria who is in saudi arabia and turkey in the week has now come to moscow next will be iran de mistura is assessing

whether the foreign powers involved in syria's war are ready to restart the un facilitated political process he acknowledged that recent days have been rough. we had a very dangerous and very difficult and very tense week and. the priority for the u.n. secretary is for the sick the general and therefore the coming here and doing this tour doherty ville in various capitals and very much moscow is the player it is to lower the temperature seven to mr a maybe doing the different grounds with the intention of getting the geneva peace process back on track but there are those who question just how much life there is actually left in this particular u.n. sponsored format people like analyst dimitri from up ski he thinks de mistura is rights to still be pushing for dialogue but feels that the scramble for syrian territory by russia turkey iran and the u.s.
12:08 am
has changed the game is sides realize that the russians them porton bought this that the most decisive argument there was the one less real forces interruption on the ground. and with bashar al assad feeling that perhaps a total defeat of the rebellion is within his reach there's no obvious reason for syria's president to return to the negotiating table right now rory chalons al-jazeera moscow i so fighters have reportedly agreed to withdraw from one of the last remaining areas outside of government control in the syrian capital damascus the surrender of the and play which includes the our milk palestinian refugee camp will mean that the syrian government is close to controlling the entire area around the capital the army is continuing to bombard the enclave pending a full surrender deal. at least twenty civilians have been killed in saudi led coalition air strikes in yemen the strikes targeted a village in a western district of ties yemen has been locked in

12:10 am
a more secure sustainable more prosperous and fairest future for all and it was a significant victory for the u.k. to get the endorsement of commonwealth leaders for prince charles to eventually succeed queen elizabeth his mother as head of the alliance founded by her father george the sick almost seventy years ago that week was marred by outrage over britain's failure to recognise the citizens' rights of caribbean migrant workers the so-called windrush generation that came to the united kingdom at the government's invitation sixty years ago but they were also commitments to cyber security to free trade fighting climate change and malaria and there was support for former members in barclays renewed efforts at democracy it's representative was told that a free and fair election this year might win it re entry to the club queen elizabeth has been head of the commonwealth for sixty six years and since she's largely given up foreign travel it seems likely that this is the last heads of government meeting
12:11 am
that she will attend and with that in the air it was perhaps inevitable that they'd be questions about the future and purpose of what members prefer to call the family of nations critics have suggested that this alliance in search of meaning money stand more on its own merits with a move away from the monarchy prince charles will bring consistency some might say stability but he's unlikely to bring change jonah hill al-jazeera london or a rally has taken place in south london to show solidarity with the when russia generation of britain's mention there in china's reports and the embargo is there in santa this update. very personally this demonstration is being held in windrush square in brixton and many of the speakers have been outlining the distress and the damage caused to the so called wind rush generation people who arrived as young children in the nineteen fifties. sixty's here who were british

12:13 am
they have not only lost their jobs but in some cases they have had breakdowns they have suffered mental health problems because of the fact that they have been threatened with being kicked out of their own country this is a problem that affects tens of thousands of people and it's not going away quickly . south africa's president has returned from a trip to europe to try to calm protests over local services in northwest province more than twenty people have been arrested since the demonstrations began in and around the city of my gang on wednesday catherine sawyer was there. residents of mike hang in the northwest province wait for the outcome of a meeting between president serum a poster and the provincial leadership. people in several paths of the region have been protesting for days now they say they want better houses jobs and an end to corruption they're demanding the provincial leaders supermom appeal whom they accuse of failing to do his job and listen corruption to step down the president

catches his trip to the u.k. where he was attending a commonwealth heads of state meeting to deal with the situation having listened to all the imports we have decided that we would like to engage further with a number of other people particularly members of the community. not only in my he but also in the northwest what i can assure you now is that even if all of the mother look led we are not going to solve and we'll go in for what streets are deserted but evidence of the violent protests is everywhere. so this is one of the areas where protesters had blocked the roads using running tires and anything else they could find police have been trying to clear this road we've also seen shops that have been broken into and looted and the situation here is still very tense this petrol station is in one of the hot spots
12:15 am
a group of young people is say to have done this many shop owners are devastated. i don't know how to start over i used all my money to stock the shop to get. others whose businesses were destroyed comped at the heritage house where the leadership was meeting they tell us what happened to their shops had nothing to do with genuine demonstrations nor did they want to begin problem but they're not involving them and we're not just doing anything results doing business. residents of this region continue to wait for and says that these are difficult issues that may not be fully resolved fairly soon cathy zoi al-jazeera south africa with the news hour live from london much more still ahead across the united states students walk out of class on the nineteenth anniversary of the colombine shooting . the scars of ethnic conflict why many refugees fleeing the democratic republic of

congo believe politicians planned the violence that destroyed their lives. and rafael nadal is on a roll at the monte carlo masters tennis laughter details later that summer. the u.s. democratic party is suing the donald trump campaign and russia over alleged collusion in the two thousand and sixteen presidential election they cuse russia of contacting trump's advisers to inform them of a cyber attack that leaked negative information about his democratic rival hillary clinton the lawsuit also involves wiki leaks and its founder julian assange they say gave the trump team advance knowledge they were publishing the information patty call him is following events from washington. it's an unusual move but not an unprecedented one democrats sued over the watergate break in and they did get some money on the day that richard nixon left office in disgrace now the lawsuit is
12:17 am
against russia russia's intelligence service and some russian citizens it is difficult to sue a sovereign nation in the united states but it is possible difficult but possible it also sues wiki leaks and its founder julian assange and it really targets people very close to the president president donald trump not named in this lawsuit because it's really hard to sue a sitting president but his campaign is named along with his son don jr son in law jerry cushion or his former campaign chairman paul mann afford his advisor roger stone and former campaign aides george papadopoulos and richard gates now the complaint alleges that the trump campaign colluded with russia to steal and publish e-mails from the democratic campaign workers in an attempt to help trump win the presidency much of what is in this lawsuit was already known but there are a couple of things that we didn't know for example it says it alleges that in late twenty fifteen that far back that european intelligence services said that they were witnessing some suspicious communications between russian operatives and
12:18 am
members of the trump campaign that they notified the u.s. about that again at late two thousand and fifteen it also goes on to say that the hack was earlier than we previously thought that it happened again in twenty fifteen and it wasn't just the computer system it was the phone system that was compromised so some new details in this lawsuit this could be seen as a dangerous move if people perceive that it is in any way going to interfere with special counsel robert mueller who is investigating potential collusion between. the term campaign and russia but it also could serve the purpose of putting just another venue to get the information out there there's growing concern that the special counsel will be tampered with or could possibly be let go if this lawsuit is allowed to proceed this basically puts before court before jury all on the record exactly what happened in the twenty sixteen campaign and it also serves as putting even more pressure on people in trump's orbit they're already facing pretty high legal bills and legal issues and this will only add to that. the boss

separatist group etter is apologize for the suffering caused to victims and their relatives during its forty eight campaign of violence more than eight hundred people were killed in bombings and shootings carried out by the group during its battle for an independence day in northern spain and southwest france thousands more were injured charlie angela reports. after decades of violent an apology for this car bomb attacks shootings in assassinations in the name of independence i better an acronym that stands for basque homeland and freedom started as a student movement opposed to general franco's military dictatorship that went on to become one of europe's most violent and injuring armed groups from one thousand nine hundred eighty eight to two thousand and ten it killed more than eight hundred twenty people nearly half of them civilians their words were for that. we are
12:20 am
aware that during this long period of all struggle we have created a lot of pain including many damages for which there is no solution we want to show respect for the dead those injured and the victims that were caused by the actions of eta we truly apologize spain's government welcome the statement saying atta had been defeated by the weapons of democracy. this shows as political economic social and international just these last words not for as a but for all the democrats in fees or with the help of the state security forces judges and the international community. etter fell out of favor with the basque people decades ago and for some victims the apology was not enough. but that doesn't fulfil my expectations i think it's a statement where they've tried to justify their acts and overall there's a selective forgiveness which i can't understand at all because we are all victims we have all suffered the pain caused by. the group's journey to dissolution has
12:21 am
been long. in march two thousand and six after announce its first permanent cease fire and in response the socialist government started peace talks but nine months later at a bombed a car park at madrid's international airport killing two people then in twenty ten the group announced it would not carry out further attacks a year later it declared a permanent ceasefire. and twelve months ago with the help of mediators it led french authorities to a cache of weapons explosives and munition now completely disarmed this apology is the last step before its full dissolution expected in may but the healing process will take many years charlie al-jazeera. or paddy woodworth is an author an analyst on spanish and basque issues and joins us live skype from dublin thank you very much for speaking to us so how important is this statement of apology from.
12:22 am
well first. really i've always been quite bizarre and they used to be much longer they used to be many thousands or it's a long full of marxist leninist jargon this one is relatively simple and straightforward. actually as apologies go i think it's very very cleverly worded they apologize to all of their victims they do make a slight distinction between collateral damage if you like to use that horrible phrase i think generation the united states. but they they do make a slight distinction between people they killed accidentally and people they killed deliberately and but it's a very it's a very fulsome massaro apology in the sense that it's rather. doubt it's in sara xiii but it's very complete and i think it really is part of
12:23 am
a kind of sciatic will seen sashing for their expected final dissolution in may it's a curious statement in that there are two things not referred to and one is the dissolution itself there is no mention of the dissolution though it's clear from the whole tone of the of the statement that there are there is no question of their ever returning to to war as they see it the other thing that's very curious is that there is no mention of their prisoners unlike for example the situation unarmed where the ira and loyalist paramilitary prisoners were released as part of the peace process . six seven years after it has ceased killing has nearly five hundred people seven present mostly in spain some in france and they're getting no special treatment and they're not all mentions in the sense of them like you not have they as chosen to abandon them what's you know why and why don't you mentioned
12:24 am
no it looks like that but exact. really probably the opposite. i think the explanation maybe that every time after mentions the prisoners it actually damages the prisoners this is a little complicated but it works like this if. he says anything about the prisoners this spanish edition read and when a prisoner comes up for early release for good behavior for whatever reason the prisoner is told well actually since apple is still speaking in your name you are still subject to act as authority and therefore you may return to violence and so their release is held up so i think this is very sounds very arcane but i think their thinking is by not mentioning the prisoners at all they are actually improving their chances of early release and i think it's really interesting what you say there a comparing the wording of their previous statement saying that some of their comments in the past have been bizarre this statement of apology is actually quite
12:25 am
cleverly worded what does this tell us what does it reveal about what is happening behind the scenes i mean obviously the cheat the group has chosen to disband but what does it tell us about their leadership structure. well i think the reality is they have very little leadership structure left they have very little of anything left they have very few weapons after i mean the one assumes pragmatically that they didn't decommission all their weapons last year but they had already lost most of their weapons to the police they were never terribly in a very weak situation but there is a paradox here that with the cease fire political support for a basket independence rose. the vote for groups which are analogous to s. are in political terms rose from a nadir of about seven percent towards the beginning of this century to twenty five percent after the seastar so politically they're stronger so where does the
12:26 am
aspiration that you described go how is this channel to if the group has to disband . i think the aspiration goes into political activity and they must be watching very carefully what's happening in catalonia where independence has support of around forty eight forty nine percent perhaps and has moved forward though with great difficulty without a shot being fired so i think that's the kind of model that they will look at but of course this is all very fraught because madrid believes that has won an outright military victory in the basque country i don't actually think it's as simple as that and madrid has absolutely no intention of ceding independence to either the basque country or catalonia so we're really in a very and you know a very fraught situation that is not going to go away i think after will finally go away and i think one thing you might say about this statement is that it has come
12:27 am
literally decades too late and had a lot of credibility under the dictatorship and and for a period after the dictatorship but steadily even among its own supporters it's been losing that support so and in fact in the view of i think the intelligent pro independence leaders had long ago become an obstacle to independence but there was a kind of fascist fetishization of that or that it was kind of an authority which couldn't be questioned by radical pro independence people in the basque country and it's only with the breaking of that to boo that you see in the process of the last six or seven years this is a very service series of statements i think this is the second last one basically apologizing to all of the victims which is as i say a remarkable thing to do and i think the next step we will see will be an announcement that at a has actually dissolved thank you very much maybe interesting to talk to get your

vehicles that are more than twenty years old in an effort to combat air pollution some say the move is unfair to people who rely on their vehicles to make a living so strong katmandu. catastrophic can be a nightmare and often the pollution levels exceed that of large cities like new delhi and beijing you know to manage pollution and accidents in the past government started enforcing an old decision to ban public vehicles that are more than twenty years old last year public polls alone were sponsible for more than seventy thousand major and minor accidents at the bottom of the valley. twenty old vehicles were banned from the city two years ago but the ban has now been imposed across the country according to the department of transportation as many as sixty thousand vehicles will be taken off the roads because of this decision. just a few hours outside gottman due in bank village there are a few buses transferring locals drivers here are happy that the ban has just come
12:41 am
into effect but i don't know why it didn't do this to ron or verses on these roads bridges understood in can fairly and there can be accidents but vehicles older than twenty years three hundred thirty years are instead of working out around here but the decision has upset some transport entrepreneurs' who are often accused of acting like cartels just last month the government ended their monopoly on bus routes and allowed new buses now don't trip in your say this twenty year ban will impact the group as the most. we have four wheelers operating in the hills they cost one hundred to one hundred fifty thousand dollars now we can't replace those vehicles and people will be deprived of the services if vehicles are damaged even within five to ten years they should be removed from operation capping the life of big girls to twenty years is unscientific. the pallies pay high rates of taxes duport new vehicles up to two hundred eighty eight percent government officials say
12:42 am
it takes no longer than twelve years to recover they invested and on public transport and extra eight years its profit transport entrepreneur say they already run at a loss it was subsidies to buy you vehicles now they're threatening to go on an extended strike but government officials say they're not going to back down. on the government. of the government so far has only a regulatory a managerial role in the public transportation sector so we need to operate our own public transportation system what the metropolitan cities into valid countries we are lobbying and hope to demonstrate this all over the country to some corporate and good numbers to lessen the burden of all vehicles might not have much impact on government is pollution but if both sides don't compromise and vehicles are not replaced on roads the poorest people in the country may have less access to public transport. also zero that might do. the swedish d.j.
