believed to be disbanded operations unit of the general intelligence services has broken out of an ultimatum. or join the rapid support force so that its military have deployed special forces to contain the violence let's go now to heber borgen who joins us live in situation now. well honestly no it's not over yet and we can still hear heavy artillery from the northern parts of. to tension in the air along the airport road and the airport which is shut down so people are still concerned but let's go back to how we got here it all started a few months back when the den transitional military council which was in control after president bush here ordered the dissolving of the operations unit of the general intelligence service now that's operations unit is an armed units and was
responsible for arrests and basically the only one with the power to kill civilians within sudanese soil so that unit was ordered to be disbanded and they were given the option of joining the military forces or retiring now what happened today is that we've seen members from those units saying that the severance package that was offered to them is not sufficient and that they wanted more so we've seen them taking out their grievances by basically surrounding general into intelligence services headquarters and opening fire initially at the air in the air and then. forces and the rapid support forces that have been deployed to try to contain the situation. clearly when you have rival factions of the military shooting at each other and it is a serious situation that goes without saying but does this say that there is something fundamentally structurally wrong here is worlds that you have these rival factions and this could lead to something even more now that we've seen this
initial exchange of gunfire. yes indeed there are concerns that there will be security deterioration especially because both sides are heavily armed and one side does not seem to be backing down despite the government saying that. the people who are demanding more severance packages to put down their guns and try to talk to the government to try to reach a settlement that would seem the army to point them in helicopters around various parts of the capital to try to assess the situation and control it but the intelligence officers are saying that they're going to continue with their basically what the army has described is going to continue holding out with the situation and till somebody addresses them saying that they will be offered a better package now let's not forget that they are concerned that because all of this is happening within residential neighborhoods they are confident that there will be injuries and fatalities we've already heard reports that at least 2 people have been injured since the gunfire erupted in the early hours of this morning and
there are concerns that they will be fatalities because most of these buildings where the general intelligence service offices are within residential compounds give a thank you he would more with joining us live there from. libya's fragile cease fire resumed after warring sides failed to reach a breakthrough during talks in the russian capital will go to before have to did not sign the deal formalizing the truce but moscow says the talks are not did however the outcome has angered turkey's president richard is accusing have to running away from we go we had this warnings i have to force. in the coming days we will carefully monitor the choices that will be made between hafter and the legitimate government if the terrorist attacks against the people of the government of libya continue we will never refrain from teaching him the lesson he deserves russia which supports have to. continue to push for negotiations over
violence but there have been reports of have to see forces gathering in southern tripoli threatening the troops brokered by turkey and russia subversives in the russian capital she says there's still a lot of optimism that the warlords of the faster will agree to a deal after staying silent for most of the day the government didn't explain anything about why i have to suddenly left moscow and didn't sign the agreement that he left apparently in the early hours in the middle of the night now they have . a statement the ministry of defense says that is actually very positive about the final statement that they have been drafting and that he needs 2 days to discuss this with his allies in libya meaning the local tribal leaders they also say that the main outcome of the talks yesterday that lasted 8 hours is that both parties agree on this in different cities fire so there's a lot of optimism here that this cease fire will still be signed by by hafta
also i spoke to the head of the russian contact group for libya and he also had the same optimism he sat at the end after finally brought more conditions to the to the table he was actually present during the negotiations but he said it's no problem there's no need to be worried he will do that not only sign this agreement because he has no other option that was the very clear message that i got here from the ministry of foreign affairs we'll have to see if this is going to happen in the next 2 days. it's about in the turkish capital ankara he says president or one is trying to set accountability for any renewed violence he wants through showed the international community that it is half that and half the allies who are to blame for any resumption in fighting for the instability that continues in libya not the same time show that it is his political efforts and those of the turkish leadership
that are trying to establish some sort of peace and push for a political solution of the reality is that that's what has developed over the past 24 hours at least in the sense that the recognized government of tripoli the internationally recognized government of tripoli which turkey backs has agreed and has signed on the paper which stipulates having an open ended cease fire and working towards a political solution on the ones the province have been the other side namely that of that obviously that's put the russians in a precarious situation because they've supported tough there so much both financially and through something mercenaries militarily but they are not alone in terms of sponsoring crafters. project in libya there is the united arab emirates and egypt who obviously have their own considerations as well turkey's president insists that things must go on as they have been planned and as we heard there had a warning if that doesn't happen that he wouldn't hesitate to ensure that turkey
responds to any attack by have to forces 7 romani is an analyst on russia and libya and he joins us live from oxford in the u.k. by skype it's good to have you with us there is some optimism coming out of russia or ultimately there will be a deal here that have to agree that given how much support moscow has given huffed and his forces is this an embarrassment for russia that it wasn't that big a deal there and then in moscow. so we still want heard about russia's relationship with after is that they have given a lot of military support in terms of mercenaries and economic support but they've always been a lot of doubts and questions amongst different ministries the russian defense minister when you're a supporter of the russian foreign ministry as an people around who have been less convinced the view new emerged if you give me the unwilling to follow up and obligations the mind of the cia numerous plots out we saw today i think was a confirmation or vindication for the people in the foreign ministry who don't feel
about how it is not a man to be trusted a not and a respectable stakeholder in this conflict is willing to help look it's so in that case what does ambitions here is this seeking time for negotiation is he trying to reposition himself does he think he can withstand the pressure from russia is he looking forward to to ultimately a deal where he's not in power but wants to still have a measure of influence inside the country. so i have to i think is trying to reframe the narrative i think he was seen much of the world being unilateral aggressor in tripoli and you want to reframe this by showing that he shouldn't peace and he has gene out card in making india on the day i would otherwise go but it is long and i think that he recognizes that he can succeed in shipley militarily . sholay through the use of force so he's trying to you engage in military campaign up to a certain rational gray nice iraqi nights where he granted sovereignty over each of
his own in libya and then supervenes on his terms in a position of strength whether that's now whether that's later will depend on obviously his reading over the next few days about this train the military forces in around he also has to factor in doesn't it the situation that you know that turkey is now backing the government of national accord and the message from president earlier one very blunt the is are will teach you a lesson if you continue with any more military advances what impact is that likely that. so turkey is definitely talking about intervening and be out of the gene and it would claim the legitimacy for this because the gene a is the international recognized government as for the un but there are a number of constraints on turkish behavior and i think out there is aware 1st of all any deployment of troops in libya this chimley unpopular only 34 percent of turks supported him or the vast majority who supported intervention in syria and secondly intervention by turkey would likely do reciprocal retaliation by egypt in the u.a.e. so after i think is willing to take
a gamble that or one is blustering here as not that serious about a long term military occupation as actually given the fact that turkey and russia happening yet you have a cease fire and in general they want to avoid a conviction both in libya and in. some remote it has been good to have you on the program appreciate your insights into the stores and i thank you so much thank you very much. well there's plenty more ahead on the news hour including in the u.s. house democrats say they are almost ready to send president trump's impeachment across to the senate for trial. at the bat in charge of spanish football champions bos a lot of it gets down to work people will be here with all the details. we're getting reports may ron of several arrests in connection with the downing of that ukrainian. president hassan rouhani said all those responsible will be punished
rouhani also said no single person could be blamed for what he called an unforgivable era $176.00 people died when the military mistake in the shutdown that passenger jet last wednesday. that taught you to. this incident was without precedent in the history of our country there has never been a time when a person in charge of our air defense systems or an officer has committed such an error against a passenger plane in the country's capital and so close to the international airport. that of the sympathizing with all the dear families that were hit by this major tragedy i tell them that we will continue this path until discovering all the aspects of the incident and punishing those involved and finally reassuring the people that such an incident will not happen again. iran is warning of a serious and strong response after 3 european countries triggered the dispute process its nuclear deal which could mean u.n.
sanctions being reimposed says the decision risks a new escalation iran's dismissing the if it misses it still willing to consider any constructive if it to save the 2015 deal britain france and germany triggered the dispute process saying the iranians have reduced their commitment to limiting nuclear development and we go to get more reaction from tehran with dorsetshire bari shortly we go 1st to john how in london joe to take us through what happens from here there is a mechanism to step back sanctions there is a prospect of maybe trying to preserve this deal and some are even suggesting a new deal might be needed where does it go to. it's a big deal the triggering of this dispute resolution mechanism contained within the structure of the deal itself and so it has the potential to lead to the ultimate unraveling of this do clear deal all together the 3 britain france and germany who have been until now trying very hard to save the deal clearly felt that
a prospect the prospect of a return to preedy a levels of uranium enrichment in iran which is what the iranians are essentially threatening and were threatening last week deserve this sort of response and there's a 3 stage process that lies ahead they'll be discussions 1st of all within the joint commission set up under the deal representatives of all the signatories minus the united states of course that has a 15 day deadline it can be extended looking for a resolution if there is no resolution that moves up to the level of foreign ministers again a 15 day deadline for talks again extended bull and finally if there is still no resolution it goes to the european at the u.n. security council is the ultimate arbiter where a resolution will be required to finally lift the sanctions relief that iran has enjoyed under the deal and institute that snap back to the sanctions that were in place before now remember a number of the signatories have veto wielding powers at the u.n. security council among them russia russia has voiced its opposition to the
triggering of this dispute resolution mechanism so russia may stand in the way of any ultimate resolution this is what that barrel had to say the e.u. foreign policy chief when he made the announcement that the mechanism was being triggered here we go. the aim of the dispute to solution make the day's news is not to dream bulls sanctions. game of these mechanisms used to resolve issues relating to the implementation of the agreement within defray work of the joint commission. i think it's has to be clear they did to if he's there for to find solutions and return to full compliance within differing work of this agreement. now again where there was this unity of purpose among the 3 britain france and germany to try and save the deal already some cracks beginning
to show boris johnson the british prime minister talking about all of this today saying look it was time for a brand new deal to be put in place and a deal no less to be negotiated by donald trump even called it the trump deal let's replace this floor deal he said replace it with the trump deal adding president trump is a great deal maker by his own account and by the account of us john thank you john how live from london let's go to tehran now dorsetshire bari will join us live from there interesting to see what the initial response has been around the warning of in their words serious and strong response what do we read into that. well this is an statement that's been issued by the foreign ministry spokesperson up us moussavi which he highlights how really in c.l. about this latest saxon taken by the remaining european signatories to the nuclear deal he says that this is a passive measure they are trying to dismiss this act as not very significant when
in fact it could see the entire nuclear agreement really come to an end because the europeans say that iran has taken these measures since may of last year in response to the u.s. withdrawing from the deal and the measures that they've taken are actually they don't have any legal basis under this agreement they were supposed to triggered this dispute resolution mechanism instead of reducing their commitments but the ukrainians say that their point of view is their reduction in commitments is with in line with this agreement so it depends on which side you want to look at what the iranian position is because they haven't been able to receive any of the benefits of the nuclear deal that was limiting their nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief and a return to the international economic markets they haven't been really that the europeans haven't complied with there and the bargain so the iranians are saying
we're in a position to scale back our responsibilities and commitments this deal which is what they've done so far the past there's been 5 different levels of stepping back or reducing their commitments which the last one took place just the beginning of january january 5th in essence iran has stopped all its limitations when it comes to its enrichment program that was set out under this deal if they don't longer are abiding by that do so while you there let's talk about the fallout still from the downing of that ukrainian airline understand they've been some of rests by about but most of the one of the people who buy have been arrested via was a person who shot the footage of that missile striking the a lot of tell us more. we've just received a statement from the revolutionary guards in which they state that the person who filmed the moment of strike that took place near i'll probably airport at the video
that was shared around the world that brought in question really the narrative that the iranians had said initially that person has now been detained he hasn't been arrested they haven't say that he's been arrested he's been detained and he's being held for questioning about the events that he witnessed in the footage that he filmed this is all we know at this time the revolution guys just released a statement a short while ago but we heard from the spokesperson of the judiciary earlier and he said that there are been a number of arrests in relation to this plane crash now we don't know what who has been arrested and for what exactly we don't know if they're part of the government or the revolutionary guards or iranians that were witnessing this incident take place we're waiting to find out more about what we do know is that the investigation is still ongoing yet dosa thank you for that those jabari live from tehran now the democratic led u.s. house of representatives will vote on wednesday on
a resolution to name the team of impeachment managers for the senate trial against president donald trump now the house impeached trump last month you remember on charges of abusing power by pressuring ukraine to announce an investigation it was democratic rival joe biden and of obstructing congress with the u.s. house democrat came jeffrey zients at the strategy that his body will pursue when presenting the case against strong. we're going to keep the focus. on the stunning corrupt abuse of power engaged in by donna. pressured a foreign government to target an american citizen for political gain. had the same time with held without justification $391000000.00 in military aid to of on a more new crame as part of a geo political shakedown scheme were you were as house republicans of also of being mazing they've accuse the democrats of stalling the impeachment process add
of delaying important worked in the senate we anticipate that the speaker will finally bring a vote to the floor to name managers for the articles of impeachment obviously after saying for months and months it was urgent that president trump be impeached the speaker of the house then sat on the articles for many many weeks i'm clear exactly what she believes she accomplished by it we seem to be an exactly the same situation we were in previously except that we've now had this tremendous delay which means that important pieces of work like for example us m.c.a. which obviously the houses cast which we need to have passed in the senate will not be taken at because the senate you know will now be focused on the impeachment trial protocol highness law 1st capitol hill and patty there's been that delay but well today was stunned to see both sides sitting out mocking out their territory as
these ultimately lead to trial in the senate. exactly i think the question that they representative just asked is what did she accomplish the house speaker nancy pelosi by delaying this by 4 weeks to the day tomorrow what she accomplished as she got the country through the christmas holiday were pretty much everybody unplugs doesn't read the newspaper doesn't really watch a lot of t.v. she also gave time to build momentum if you look at the polls in overwhelming number of american voters what to see witnesses presented at a trial so why does that matter well mitch mcconnells the republican leader of the house close ally of president trump he's already come out and said he says no way that trump is going to be removed from office after being impeached by the house and he has said that he doesn't think there needs to be witnesses he wants to have opening arguments and then they'll talk about it but here's why this matters it's not up to mitch mcconnell guess he is the house republican or the senate republican leader but if just for senate republicans jump on board with democrats they can
demand that witnesses and evidence so why does that 4 weeks that we've just seen matter well in those 4 weeks something really critical happened john bolton's lawyer he was the former national security adviser to president donald trump he knows about all these different conversations he set out the message that he will testify if subpoenaed by the senate so now the scramble is on everyone's going to be looking over the next coming days will for republicans break from their leader will they demand testimony if so we could be looking at a much different impeachment trial than the one that the senate majority leader promised. how do you thank you patty cohen live this capitol hill britain is risking a division among key intelligence allies as it seeks to build a 5 g. telecommunications network for more on this we go to lauren tyler right now european broadcast center in london. thanks dan yes u.k. prime minister boris johnson has not ruled out using chinese communications firm way to provide the country's 5 g. network despite strong warnings from washington the u.s.

let's be clear i don't want to z u k prime minister to put in any infrastructure that is going to prejudice our national security there are big companies like nakia and erickson who are well established in fairness they haven't always kept up with the pace of speed with power in terms of the price they create when the quality equipment and the size of the equipment we also got something emerging and i think the best solution really for the network operators have a mixed base the suppliers 5 g. isn't just about faster data on our mobile phones it's about immersive education it's about self driving because it's about smaller cities the list goes on if you believe the hype eventually simply need 5 g. but it requires a vast the new infrastructure and that comes at a price. claims its equipment is cheaper than his competitors and uses less energy giving its a potential edge in the developing world who always sign 5 g.

hello again welcome back to you in the national weather forecast well here across parts of iran we have seen some very heavy rain leading to flooding this past weekend i want to show you the most current video that has come in from several days ago across this area now one person has died over 1200 people displaced because of the very heavy rains leading to the flooding across much of this area where the good news is the rain is now ending but we're still going to be seeing that water start to come down in many areas so some areas may be very difficult to get to as we go towards the next couple of days here in the forecast map here on thursday the rain has ended much drier conditions across much of the area but we are going to be seeing some a better weather for us the winds are dropping we're going to sing a time to hear about 20 degrees or we are watching the northern coast of africa very carefully we do have a storm system parked in the mediterranean you can see the clouds right here on
a satellite image for parts of libya as well as egypt that means we are going to see it's a very heavy rain possibly across much of this area because you could be seeing the winds as well 13 degrees is expected high here on wednesday but by the time we do go towards thursday the system makes its way a little bit more towards the east and for egypt that means you can be seeing some very heavy rain as well cairo you can be right on the edge of the rain with more clouds in the forecast possibly a shower or 2 with the temperature of 80 degrees. when is the last time you were out on the streets protesting whether on line you feel the weight of the system when you walk through each and every luggage board layer further and further into the jail or if you join us once a week entry has to start from day one whether again you and attention or your own parser this is a dialogue everyone has a voice so far there are studies that support our coverage will be varying accounts
but i want to give people the reason for it join the global conversation on now to 0. there's a wave of sentiment around the world if you actually want accountability from the people who are running their countries and i think often people's voices are not heard because they're just not part of the mainstream news narrative. obviously we cover big stories and we report on the big events that are going on but we also tell the stories of people who generally don't have a voice i mean when i was a child my debts will never be afraid to put your hand up and ask a question and i think that's what i'm sure really does the ask the questions to people who should be accountable and also to get people to give their view of what's going on.
this is how to sneer at how modern of our top stories this hour we go see oceans are underway in sudan to win the newton the by security forces personnel shooting started in khartoum buffer disbanded intelligence service unit was given an ultimatum to either retire or join the rapid support forces blamed for killing anti-government protests. across the remains upbeat on efforts to secure a truce in libya turkey's president accused warlord relief a half of running away from monday's talks in moscow russia's defense minister says he's taking time to discuss the terms of the truce with his allies back home. 3 european countries have triggered a dispute process against iran which could mean more sanctions being britain france and germany say iran has reduced its commitment to the 2015 agreement to limit nuclear development. venezuelans a marching in caracas to show his support for president nicolas maduro during his annual state of the union speech in the years since mid euros last address
venezuela has been rocked by political and economic crises while his supporters rally in the capital opposition leader one quiet always among his own supporters in the eastern city of bochy cement oh well let's go now to our latin america editor lucien humid who's in caracas what's happening they wear you out this year. and it's made no more than an hour since our president hugo last night little began speaking they were large crowds of people who are brought out around the national assembly and constituent assembly building. but right now behind me you can just see very few or there's not it's very difficult to hear what he is saying we have been keeping track however of his speech and there's been 1st of all he started by attacking some of the leaders of the happily church here who were invited to see america where one by law is actually right now attending a procession of this country's faith turned saint. during the homily of this this
church leader said that insinuated that didn't israel and should gather together and resist peacefully against tyranny and oppression president mughal said that this was a lack of respect and since then he's been also attacking the united states he says that the problems of this country especially the economic ones are car being planned in washington in miami and being carried out from neighboring colombia let's hear what he had to say. they say we don't seem to have that there but let me just pick up and ask you this one. also with some of his supporters today we're all day and how much support does he still have is he being losing some of that momentum he had earlier last year. yes he certainly has lost a lot of the momentum that you have last year there's no question about that now
according to some of 7 the recent polls who are also does not have a lot of support but he says hasn't gone down if you like as quickly as it was also because many venezuelans haven't seen the results of the 1st few months of opposition what it looked like president mahmoud was on the brink of being replaced or toppled if you like that didn't happen he's been gaining he has been clearly consolidating his power with the help of the military but interestingly just a few minutes ago president bush going to suggested that it was time to sit down and have a new dialogue he said the conditions for new elections for the national assembly of the parliament here are going to take place this year and that if the opposition wants better conditions more transparent conditions and international supervision he's willing to go along with that we'll have to see now whether white all accept that and whether that will somehow also help rekindle some of the support for the opposition do they see thank you so much the senior joining us live caracas.
scientists are urging the total evacuation of nearly a 1000000 people living close to an erupting volcano in the philippines tens of thousands of already fled their homes since ash and lava started spewing from taal volcano on sunday as jamila alan duggan reports tremors have been filled elsewhere in batangas problems. hardly any civilian is allowed to enter the town now. and it is clear why. he. didn't say there's just a massive earthquake and the even police officers will have to leave on their
station we were just here a few moments ago. with them but now we really we really have to i. think we're going to. officials are calling this area ground 0. is just around 10 kilometers away from the top that erupted on sunday spewing ash. we've been told that water in this lake has gone up by a meter raising fears that it might spill over its banks hampering efforts to help those in need. the situation is so it is hard for us to secure our own men this is why we don't allow the return. violent explosions like these haven't been seen here in decades and experts warn there
could be more. more than 20000 people have been displaced moved to at least 100 evacuation sites and it's not clear when they might return but some have decided to stay let them indoors a clan during the day they look after their cattle and whatever's left of their homes and that night they go back to the evacuation site. where the. don't of course also look up to all of the new mines and do our best to save the 6 first time when i'm in the i never thought you will be to see just days it is a really scary and we are afraid just a few days ago a good seal was a thriving agricultural town now people here say it's a stiff their lives have been put on hold and they're full of a good knee and the stress jamila a little dog and i'll just 0 a good c.e.o. but on this province northern philippines

without coal. she's lived in this house near warsaw for nearly 40 years and in winter when temperatures plunge her coal fired boiler is what heats the family home my hands would be cleaner if i didn't have to use coal to heat my house but electric heating would be so much more expensive i couldn't afford it on my salary more and more poles are aware of the problems burning coal entails. after all the country has more than 30 of the european union's 50 most polluted cities according to the world health organization but it's also addicted to coal fired power plants like this last month that were greeted targeted net 0 emissions by 2050 but with an opt out for poland the e.u. is just transition fund aims to generate a $111000000000.00 over 7 years to help coal dependent nations and regions move to a green economy poland which relies on coal for 80 percent of its electricity is
a clear candidate and things are going in the wrong direction here in 2017 poland's total greenhouse gas emissions when top around 4 percent on the year before. greenpeace activists say poland should be doing so much more and they've staged catching protests like this one against coal imports and get done while some political parties now talk about phasing out coal by a certain date previously it's a blue the government's building more coal fired power plants major. countries already either dish call or have very specific plans if. government is not serious about this thing you know no government should receive funding if there are still building coal fired power plants this is simply irresponsible it seems clear poland will have to change course dramatically and quickly some believe its heavy reliance on one energy source could make it easier

of them tried to take it they've got to know if they don't understand anything. the other day the villages met and told the police they were feeling unprotected and said they were thinking about arming themselves with guns against the refugees. but i think obviously everyone has to do something and if we don't have a weapon we'll find something else other hotel they know all about this but it's not the main problem there's a mental health crisis to contend with. saying took us to the place where a few days ago an afghan man who'd been wrongly told his wife and children had been moved somewhere else without him hanged himself from a tree the next day hussein's friend riyadh hanged himself inside the hotel his entire family had been killed in iraq he complained his severe depression was being
