being used to kill dr berwick europe the home it is not of any type that our police possess or any that existence today. by god i say it's the regime that killed my son i will never doubt my certainty about it but i give in on what i mean i'm sure they purposefully decided to kill doctors but my sister was arrested with the others they detained this told them that they were specifically looking for doctors who help protest. the type of force being used by the government to quell the protests is adding to the controversy and confusion about the killings the government has employed militia to help the army combat armed groups in sudan for decades what's attracting attention now is militiaman our mosque in their faces while attacking unarmed civilians in the streets of khartoum and other major cities and i think what they what they think it then there is

10:10 am
a prime minister in apparently conciliator remote i'm listening she said i will keep you informed she told m.p.'s but there is no plan b. for bracks it's only more talks about salvaging her plan a we will be more flexible open and inclusive in the future in how we engage parliament in our approach to negotiating our future partnership with the european union second we will invent the strongest possible protections on workers' rights in the environment and we will work tried and if i how we can ensure that our commitment to no hard border in northern ireland and island can be delivered in a way that commands the support of this house and the european union the opposition labor party leader was unimpressed the prime minister's invitation to talks have been exposed as a p.r. sham every opposition party politician. wants to. every opposition party politician came out of those meetings with the same response contrary to what the
10:11 am
prime minister has just said there was no flexibility there were no negotiations nothing has changed. in brussels there's been a frosty reaction to the idea revisiting negotiations and it's too late for assistance i don't know why though really no change in the world who could even though it would seem motorists are cool because no willingness to open the door of books again and a polish suggestion about a five year time limit on the northern ireland backstop the insurance policy to avoid a hardboard on the island of ireland has been rejected by dublin i made it very clear that putting a time limits on insurance mechanism mechanism which is what the backstop is effectively means there's not a backstop at all at westminster several different groups of m.p.'s are now devising ways of using a variety of parliamentary amendments to force the prime minister to change course if we don't find a way forward the u.k. is leaving the e.u. in the twenty ninth of march and us basis of no deal so let's legislate to stop
10:12 am
that let's take that away take that risk away but hold a gun to the head of parliament which is in effect to these at least trying to do as march the twenty ninth looms the prime minister a strategy appears to be to go back to brussels and test to the e.u. his willingness to risk a no deal breck's it but he is also testing the patience of this parliament and it's not to talk clear which side will flinch first paul brennan al-jazeera westminster. time for a short break here not just iraq when we come back how young people in china are coping with a slowing economy and a lack of job prospects and the race to be the democratic challenger to donald trump and twenty twenty just got a little more crowded and more on up stay with us. l.a.

for a change the snow is not the real story of europe we've had significant rain or into the western part of the mediterranean for the barracks more recently said sardinia in sicily and italy is that arc of plant there this is snow there's still snow running through ukraine but that's gone by tuesday and this is the picture of what's the next frontal system coming down through the u.k. into the low countries france and the norns by there's some snow in that because the air behind it is quite cold and the air in front isn't particularly warm either so a bit of proper winter swinging in from a different direction i suppose and that maybe start the presses off again we'll see rain and start slow particularly for in the alps rain over the water over italy over the arcs again and down the adriatic coast you're nurses with those spreading out through austria and cream once more if you're in northern germany it just remains cold so actions in the mediterranean which means the coasts of algeria in tunis here will catch some of that right and increasingly a strong wind which of course will bring the city up so temp to maybe irrelevant
10:14 am
where we will be feeling very nice on wednesday and it will be good if you intend to go out on to the waters it's all in fact that rains for its region is here and you can see it dips down into northern parts of libya ahead of it it's quite warm in egypt. if you were looking at this from the outside you would really wonder what was going on but what is this race is it a religion that they have an in-depth exploration of global capitalism and our obsession with economic drugs this is still the center of capitalism there is no limits i view myself as a capital artist we are trying to pay for the world smaller and smaller we don't want to be set realistic in the world we would rather have a fantasy growing pains on al jazeera.

the incident took place stenches in venezuela increased once again after he was sworn in for a second time in office. the opposition and countries in the region including the united states say they won't recognize his presidency because the elections in may last year were filled with irregularities and that's why they have been calling on the military to rise up against the government. there offering immunity to all of the military personnel all polls modeled off that he says the opposition and the united states are trying to overthrow a legitimate government. this is not the first time a group of members of the security services rise up against. last year a helicopter pilot. was killed after throwing grenades at government buildings. is believed to have the loyalty of his top military command that plays
10:18 am
a crucial role in his administration and that's why the opposition is hoping it is the regular troops that will push change. there is how will. u.s. troops based in syria become the targets of eyesores fighters for the second time in less than a week a car bomb hit a checkpoint. in syria's kurdish controlled north east just as a joint convoy of u.s. and kurdish forces passed by at least five people were killed u.s. troops were not among the casualties the attack comes just weeks after the u.s. president announced a pullout of troops from syria. well monday's violence happened in the house aka province where people say there's been a surge in attacks on checkpoints in recent months kurdish fighters there are still battling to clear isolate from the region assad and jane has more now from gaza on the turkey syria border this is a second attack in five days on u.s. forces and their allies inside syrian territory just a few weeks after the u.s.
10:19 am
president declared that syria is for your vice and that's operation done and he will be pulling out pulling out his troops an assessment that not just his commanders but his own team does not see eye to eye with one of his envoys had to resign because he did not see that mission the mission has been accomplished in syria and with these attacks it's becoming clear that the united states might need to stay longer inside syrian territory this attack and came days after the attack in a town which is a bone of contention between the united states and turkey as it is falling out of this so-called safe zone on the turkish syrian border there is a road map to member that is being discussed and the united states would like to see a role of the no call entities there inside syria whether they are the kurds or the arabs to be part of the government which takes over rather than handing it over completely to turkey of turkey on the other hand has had this open communication again with the united states today president calling the u.s.
10:20 am
president saying that his forces are ready to take charge and also addressing a local audience here in turkey and telling that the durkee will be closely monitoring how are these promises going to pan out that have been promised to turkey it says it has been reported here that the turkish president says that in his forces are ready to take on an operation east of the euphrates river this is going to be all the all the way throughout not just the turkish syrian border but the words the edge of the iraqi border as well so not that remains in this complicated question of how and who will be pulling out and who. we'll be left in charge. a taliban suicide bomb i'm going to attack is killed at least forty three intelligence and security personnel in afghanistan it happened near maidan shah the capital of wardak province southwest of kabul a truck packed with explosives was driven into a training center run by the afghan intelligence agency after the explosion other taliban fighters dressed in police uniforms stormed the base some reports say the
10:21 am
number of those killed could be more than one hundred. meanwhile the taliban has announced it had resumed talks with american officials it released a statement saying taliban leaders met u.s. diplomats in qatar where the group has a political office talks between both sides of gay men to him over the last six months the u.s. appointed special envoys on the hollywood sad to lead negotiations in september the taliban insist the u.s. must leave afghanistan seventeen years after they invaded the country and response to the september eleventh attacks a sticking point in the goshi ations is inclusion of the afghan government in the peace process the taliban regard it as illegitimate and say only negotiate directly with washington or david seventies a former deputy u.s. assistant sect of defense for afghanistan and pakistan is not surprised by the increase in taliban attacks. in the run up to peace talks whether it's in the afghan conflict or other it's common for one side or another usually the side that
10:22 am
is weaker to mount amount greater off military operations to try and strengthen its hand for the negotiations and this appears to be one one other at reason for this kind of attack by the taliban at the same time as negotiations are slowly proceeding forward this is a war that's been going on one way or another for over forty years and the fact that the talks continue even in this case where the taleban yesterday said they would not talk to the u.s. and then yesterday they did talk are today they did talk with the u.s. shows that the talks are proceeding now will they achieve anything or they won't achieve anything until the taliban and other afghans sit down together and really discuss peace the taliban have used this excuse of not wanting to talk to the afghan government is a way to essentially the flecked real talks real peace talks can only come when afghan sit down with afghans but as long as the taliban are talking to somebody in
10:23 am
this case the u.s. that shows that there is a possibility of the real peace happening and in many ways the role of pakistan is key the u.s. a negotiator ambassador zalmay khalilzad was just in pakistan for several days before he went to doha and the pakistani prime minister imran khan is visiting doha as well it's not clear exactly what role pakistan is playing but they may be playing a newly positive role ten sailors have been found dead and another fourteen were rescued after two ships caught fire in a crimea russia's transport ministry says survivors jumped into the sea to escape the blaze is that it may have broken out during the ship to ship fuel transfer both vessels were under the tanzanian flag with crewmembers from turkey and india. a court in tokyo has rejected the latest bad request by the former miss sun boss carlos go on the sixty four year old has been detained in japan since his november arrest he's accused of underreporting his salary and transferring personal
