sport lewis hamilton takes pole for the final race of the formula one season but there's reports he could be planning a move away from mercedes to their rivals ferrari details in action coming up later . hello iraq's parliament will meet in the next few hours on the prime minister's resignation will top the agenda. has formally submitted his resignation but that's done little to calm public anger they're demanding a complete overhaul of the system demonstrations continuing in parts of the country $432.00 people have died in the violence since protests began in october simona fulton is in the capital. the day prime minister other of the mothers submitted his resident. nation crowds in tahrir square showed no intention of packing up and
1:02 pm
going home banners were still held high doctors remained on standby to treat the wounded and new street art sprang to life depicting the aspirations of the protest movement. for many the prime minister's departure is just the 1st perhaps the easiest step on a long road towards change they want parliament dissolved and fresh elections to be held under a new election law the problem is not just the prime minister it's not the queen as a whole all of them have to resign the prime minister to leave someone similar to him will replace him. it's a fear that risks becoming a reality in an emergency cabinet meeting of the mahdi said he would stay on as part of a caretaker government until parliament chose his replacement in the midst of morkel to be. there is no doubt that the council and its parties and members will oversee the finding of an appropriate solution as fast as possible because the
1:03 pm
country in this circumstances cannot endure a caretaker government for a long time so i want the parliament to complete the procedures to appoint a new prime minister and government. that process could take weeks even months and requires buy in from local and foreign power brokers because. for sure the political parties are facing a difficult exam they can't go back to the balance of power that used to be in place they have to come up with an extraordinary government which has to complete the process of passing a new election law that is agreed by the protesters. but reforms won't bring the victims back nor will they appease those who mourn them as the death toll rises demands for justice grow louder. comes to tahrir square every week to pray for the victims she doesn't just want to leave she wants his government to be held accountable good luck than not it is. not just him those who opened fire
1:04 pm
she gave the order this is blood this is the blood of the people of the well it's a guilt their pride claims and they go to the graves instead of celebrating their wedding they're stained with blood. but all those responsible for the bloodshed should be punished the government has promised to investigate the most recent violence but as the focus shifts towards appointing a new prime minister such promises risk being forgotten demonstrators have welcomed the his offer to resign but their joy is overshadowed by uncertainty over whether he will really leave and both will happen next with big changes to iraq's electoral law many fear that whoever succeeds him will simply carry on with what they see as the same failed political force that they want to fulfill all of his era of the. only homage of june is live for us now from baghdad somehow and what are we expecting to happen today that. it is now 1 pm
1:05 pm
local here is that it has been expected of them and it was going to be competing this hour and discussing the resignation of the prime minister either not that maddie but as of now we have still not heard if that is actually going to be taking place now oftentimes that the past he makes the weeks when parliament is announced it is going to be meeting oftentimes the sessions have either been delayed or canceled for various reasons or items that are supposed to be on the agenda find them find their way off of the agenda so to be quite honest it's really it's it's it's not a surprise if parliament meeting is delayed but we'll just have to wait and see what exactly happens going forward now if parliament does meet and if as expected they vote on whether they will accept the prime minister's resignation well if they
1:06 pm
do then that would mean as we understand it that the prime minister will head up a caretaker government for 30 days after that point it's unclear if the parliament were to meet and vote and not accept the prime minister's resignation. well that puts everything in uncharted territory but quite frankly we are already in uncharted territory here and i doubt many of these officials they had really no way to they just didn't believe frankly that this protest movement would last as long as it has lasted and to that end i should add some news that we've heard in the last 90 minutes is a staggering increase in the casualty figures the head off the human rights commission announced that at least 432 people have been killed since the beginning of these anti-government demonstrations in early october and that at least 19000 people have been injured so that really goes to show just how chaotic things have been just just how much of a crisis point this country is that none the less what we see again and again in
1:07 pm
cities like baghdad where we are here at the epicenter of the anti-government demonstrations to or square or in other cities in different parts of the country people continue to come out despite the specter of violence despite the fact that so many have been hurt and killed and where we are today we have seen many symbolic funeral processions for those who have died the past few days in also the in the south and in the south and 2 that is and we're hearing in the past hour that protests have resumed once again in those 2 shiite majority cities now also the and where there has been so much bloodshed the last 48 hours. and how many even if they did the parliament accepts the prime minister's resignation and he's then replaced with with someone else this isn't going to do much to address people's anger is it because they have made it clear that this was never about just removing a guy at the top it was about it it's about much more than that.
1:08 pm
all right it looks like we've lost our connection to him. for that we'll move on. his head of the policy analysis at the arab center for research and policy studies he joins us from here. thanks very much for being with us again martin so let me ask you that question then that is this. i mean the iraqi people have made it very clear that the day needs to be a complete overhaul of the system and it's not it's not about it's not just about person our it's about the policies and the whole way that the country is run so where do things go from here then you're absolutely right it's about the whole political system which has been actually in place since the u.s. invasion of iraq in 2003 the. just don't want the nation of the prime minister but they want to change the whole political system and that it's a mission however of the prime minister is
1:09 pm
a major step towards achieving that objective although it's not enough as i said as i said earlier i think a lot of the protest movement would want very much the parliament the next step is one of them and to. reform the electoral law dissolve itself and call for early elections this is what the demonstrators actually are trying to get because as we said early on of. the need they need the whole political class actually to go because this political class has been mismanaged mismanaging the downhole. process and the whole. governance of the country for the past 16 years and i am been corruption lack of services. and so many mis abuse. abuse that view is actually of the whole political process needs to be finished and this is what the dimmest are as an
1:10 pm
after. what was the likelihood of that happening. at this point in time because it would seem that the iraqi parliament is is did i mean just on the whole issue of the prime minister's resignation and whether he'll be replaced you're absolutely right this is not going to be easy it's going to be very difficult there is going to be he was that existence by the political parties which had been the word in the country for the past 16 years i think there is a lot of stick here. most of these political factions have divided the country in fact the government the country the main positions within the government between themselves so there is a huge huge interest here i'm. talking about $650000000000.00 of corruption over the past 16 years so this is not going to be easy it's going to be very difficult to achieve how of our people have shown that they are going to be
1:11 pm
a persistent in trying actually to achieve their objectives and i think so far they have forced the prime minister to resign and i think they will need to see more actually coming from those people on top of government if they want to save actually the political system which has been actually put in place since 2003 could to get your a perspective on this as always i want to. thank you police in hong kong have used tear gas and pepper spray on protesters rallying across the city thousands of people are marching near the government headquarters to protest police brutality the rally will end at the polytechnic university which students blockaded during an 11 day siege last month earlier on sunday protesters held a march of gratitude as they call it which ended in front of the u.s.
1:12 pm
consulate organizers say they want to thank the united states for approving legislation last week aimed at protecting protestors in the territory hong kong and mainland chinese officials could now face u.s. sanctions for any human rights abuses in hong kong sarah clarke is live for us in hong kong among the protesters sara what is the latest there. but we are at the end point which you mention it's near the polytechnic university to hang home empty are the train station and we just had about 20 of the police vans up and leave where we are over the last half an hour they are threatening to disperse the crowd here once again using tear gas but this is where the huge group of protesters have dispersed they seem to have scattered almost splintered into different groups but we did earlier have tear gas fired at the beginning point which is down the starfury pier in an area called him charge 3 and this is where
1:13 pm
the tear gas was fired because the police said the bricks were being thrown at those at them at that particular point we also had tear gas here because the protest has agreed to go on a particular route but they've been across blocking some major highways but certainly it started peacefully tear gas was fired some arrests were made and where we are the end point this is where the police were checking identification of a large group of some of the more hardcore protesters simply are indeed bitter in the effort to try to rest and charge those behind some of the more violent rallies that we've seen in the last 6 months but as for numbers here today on sunday at this rally that would be it was. approved by police and as a result more people came out as i felt safe to assemble and march it was about a 3 kilometer march up from where i mention to where we are now the calderon side and it's right near polytechnic university and that's where as you mentioned we had almost a 2 week see where more than a 1000 protesters hold themselves up inside that campus but that would clear that last week but as and where we are now they literally have just left the police and
1:14 pm
the protesters have also long gone. all right sarah clarke live for us there in hong kong thanks here. plenty more ahead on this news out. on the streets across latin america but for different reasons we'll have a report from chile. find out why multis prime minister is facing pressure to step down. and in sport one for the history books as the houston rockets star man sets another record all that later in the program. so that's all ahead but 1st a crowd in eastern democratic republic of congo has killed 2 people it accused of being rebels and happened in the eastern town of beni in north kivu province the crowd attacked a man and woman dressed in civilian clothes off to find the guns and bullets in
1:15 pm
their banks they suspected them of being members of the allied democratic forces which is blamed for killing more than 100 civilians in the past month most recent was on friday when 14 people were killed. the u.n. peacekeeping chief is visiting danny where there been protests against the perceived failure of u.n. troops to protect people against violence he admitted there is room for improvement but call for unity to go bust obedient to the message is that you should make the wrong enemies we are on the side of the people of this region the congolese people are there any things we can do better of course they are and we will work on it are our partners with who we work with every day also thinking about how to work even more closely with us the f a r d c armed forces the national police the authorities. catherine joins us live now from goma in eastern d.r. c so catherine what is the latest there on the violence. well since
1:16 pm
that killing of the couple yesterday by andrew more than there was a child with this couple when they went to pick a taxi to go to areas that nobody else is going to because it's still unsafe so these taxi drivers got in constable questioned them the couple was not very clear on their answers they had no idea and when the taxi people sashed the bags they found all this paraphernalia military equipment bullets military congolese military uniform as well so people gathered and stoned the couple to death but the child is safe so since that happened people inventing houses they want to take charge of their own security because they don't feel that government security forces are doing it so they've set up checkpoints in some areas and us arching people who are coming in vehicles that are coming in particularly from areas where this killing to
1:17 pm
have happened they say they do not trust anymore the security forces with. with their safety and there is an ongoing operation. in the forest a joint operation with the u.n. and the military against a.d.f. we spoke to this book for a book one of the military who said that they are advancing and they've taken several bases that were being held by a.d.f. this killed a senior commander of a.d.f. as well but a lot of people we've talked to in beni are saying why then even with the ongoing offensive can these fighters lady of steel come to villages and kill people as we've seen in this week. and it's happening at the same time as the visits of the world health organization director general in the country what's happening there. yes dr ted draws get better use this is now in benny he is just stalking to the people there boasting the moral of this stuff this week we sold our for
1:18 pm
a boiler responders killed by another rebel group called my my and this has been going on even before this crisis in benghazi we have seen that health workers who are trying to deal with the outbreak of the boil in that area being attacked by rebel groups there's been a lot of mistrust as well so he's just there to boost their confidence in this period of the crisis security crisis right now we have seen wu to a scaling back on appreciations evacuating stop some staff members other humanitarian organizations like the u.n. charter agency unicef and doctors without borders have also pulled out non-essential staff members the director general of w.h.o. has said that if the security situation continues unchecked it's going to be very problematic continue for the health workers to contain that there bullet outbreak and it's going to really set back the gains that have already been made so he's in
1:19 pm
then now and he'll be coming here to goma in the next few hours will be addressing the john journalists before heading back to wonder where he'll be attending a summit on hiv and aids all right karen thanks for that catherine sawyer live for us in goma right now how to deal with convicted terrorists has become an issue in britain's election campaign after friday's attack in central london rory chalons is live for us now from. from london so rory we've been we've been hearing from the leaders of both the main parties on this focusing on this issue of prisoners and early release what are they been saying. yes a lot just listen to boris johnson the u.k. prime minister speaking on the b.b.c.'s andrew marr show where he was getting a bit of a bit of
1:20 pm
a grilling on what went wrong in this case with was one car a prisoner who was technically serving a 16 year sentence but under the u.k. or the english justice system had being released from prison at the half way point of his sentence after after 8 years he was let out a prison in december 2018 and of course as we know what went on to kill 2 people on the streets of london on friday now this in the end point of an election campaign 2 weeks to go until december the 12th when britain goes to vote to go to the polls is obviously a combustible issue and it's a it's a problem i think for the conservative government for boris johnson what he is trying to do with them i'm what he was trying to do on the andrew marr show is say that this is not the fault of the conservatives that they had to let this guy out.
1:21 pm
legislation that was brought in in 2008 by the previous labor ministration and your mother was pressing him hold on a 2nd you guys the conservative party have been in power for 10 years if this was so terrible then why did you not do anything to change it now there are various people pointing out that actually boris johnson's central claim was wrong anyway that there were various ways in which the courts could have kept this guy in jail. not released him early. and that these alleged pieces of legislation have been done by numerous different governments from numerous different parties but clearly what boris johnson is trying to do is say this is not the conservatives fault this was a legacy issue that we have that we. of inherited but the problem is he's not he's a new prime minister but the conservatives have been in power for
1:22 pm
a long time and it's going to be difficult for them to dodge this as a ball that was dropped on their watch so that's what that's the way this is playing out there were 2 weeks to go until the election all right thanks for that really challenges in london a greece's foreign minister is expected in cairo for discussions over the tensions in the mediterranean 2 countries are opposed to a deal signed between turkey and libya which draft maritime boundary in the mediterranean sea greece says the deal ignores the presence of its island of crete between the coasts of turkey and libya egypt has called the deal illegal while turkey says it is about cementing its maritime rights let's take a look at the longstanding maritime dispute between turkey and greece in a little more detail now it's all to do with the island of cyprus which has been divided since 1904 into turkish speaking north and greek cypriot south
1:23 pm
turkey has been drilling for oil and gas off the coast of sign for us which has resulted in sanctions from the european union which says turkey is infringing on cypriot sovereignty while ankara maintains it does not recognize cyprus as a state meanwhile greece is pushing to lead a regional gas market cooperating with both egypt and cyprus a matthew breezer is a former u.s. diplomat and senior fellow at the alleged to counsel regime center and global energy center he joins us now via skype from istanbul thanks very much for being with us so what is at the heart of this deal between libya and turkey essentially and why now. i think the reason now is that greece and the greek cypriot state and israel have been planning a pipeline that would bring gas from israel and cyprus to to crete and then to
1:24 pm
greece to make that happen they would have had to have agreed on their own territorial waters and if they did turkey would have had no way to make a legal claim to block that pipeline because turkey favors a different pipeline it favors a pipeline that would go from from cyprus to turkey crossing greek cypriot waters so the reason why it's happening now also is there's some momentum in that other pipeline project from from israel in cyprus too to greece but also because i think turkey is taking advantage of a very fluid political system in libya where the there are 2 vying governments and turkey signed the agreement president or don't sign the agreement with the head of the government of national accord which is the un recognized government but at the same time there's another government are claimed government in eastern libya that's contending with the government in tripoli so very complex situation yeah it
1:25 pm
certainly is and why i mean what does techie get out of this essentially and what what what is the end game here. and game is number $12.00 to prevent that rival pipeline i mentioned before that would go from cyprus to to greece but it's also to protect its own claim maritime territory turkey claims a total area of around 90000 square kilometers are on the medical it's mediterranean coast but greece has a contending claim that would reduce turkey's area by almost 2000 by more than 2 thirds and that's because there are some islands one island in particular custom c.-o. that extends very very far eastward into the mediterranean beyond the aegean sea and well beyond other greek islands greif says well that island enjoys the ability to define greece's territorial waters turkey says that's uncertain its a tiny island how could it have equal weight to thousands of kilometers of turkish
1:26 pm
coastline in determining where turkey's territorial waters lie and this is a dispute that's extremely difficult to resolve there is a framework out there the un convention on the law of the sea but turkey is not a party to it and by the way neither is the united states but love the sea says islands do acquire full force in determining national waters but again turkey doesn't recognize that agreement so what does libya get out of this that. well this government of national accord gets a sense of legitimacy because its president mr also russia is able to say i have concluded in agreement with a nato member state with with the most populous states on the northern side of the mediterranean i am a legitimate leader of libya. in terms of economic benefits it's not clear yet what libya would get and by the way i should underscore this is just a memorandum of understanding that the libyan side cannot have its parliament ratify even because it doesn't have
1:27 pm
a parliamentary. good to speak of the methane brazier thanks for being with us thank you thank you. several latin countries several countries across latin america rather are expected to hold a similar taney a class or a lot so on sunday it's a type of protest that involves banging on pots and pans and while crowds are coming together for a variety of reasons they all share something in common and see newman has more from one of those demonstrations in the chilean capital santiago was this is the unmistakable sound of the protests. a very special kind of protest. and a very noisy one at that. because the last will require support. for a pan and something to strike if we. all keep doing this until the politicians understand that inequality in chile is unacceptable no him again and it doesn't matter how long it takes i still have plenty of pans left. banging pots and pans
1:28 pm
became famous in chile in 1981 when opponents of the left wing government of president the u.n. day came out to protest food shortages and rationing it was associated with the center and right wing opposition sociologist manuel until you got it done remembers it well. mark we're going to. the concert last so we're part of the best organized protests that would lead to the military overthrow if i ended the idea was to attribute it to civil society and women in the name of protecting their families and children the irony is that 12 years later the 1st major protest against the dictatorship brought the pots and pans back in the middle of an acute economic crisis characterized by hunger especially on the poor and. many assume that chile was the birthplace of the classic. the practice of the banks. and for.
1:29 pm
the 1st. appeared in algeria the so-called. the wealth of independence later they remembered me there they had read over that in america back. in europe and. one of the churches of this form of protest is that you can do it day or night on the street or from your home where presumably there's less risk of being arrested especially when there's a curfew. depending on how widespread and noisy the castle last all one can gauge the degree of support for a given protest. in venezuela for example the pots and pans come out every time there's a blackout or just a protest against president nicolas maduro. but the practice transcends all ideologies it's simply the best way many people feel they have to make themselves heard to see in human al-jazeera something i will. and
1:30 pm
a few moments will have the weather with kevin corriveau but still ahead on al-jazeera. why russian politicians pushing for a law to criminalize domestic violence are facing threats. we want it to be accessible to the 9000000000 people that are going to be on the planet in the next 20 years and eco friendly recipes tell you about the race to create a more attractive veggie burger. possum sport one of the toughest groups ever will tell you what football is you're a 2020 tournament just got a lot more interesting. we are watching typhoon kenya right now making its way towards the philippines you can
