9:03 pm
a mass rally and previous sunday so we're modern 100000 people on the streets but this week it was particularly difficult repressive many people have been detained vans are driving around the city with masked man snatching people from the street just like that carrying people carrying a flag or just walking on the streets so it's a lot of different a different atmosphere then it was a couple of weeks ago but people are still going strong and they still want to shout out that look at shankar has to resign. let's take a closer look at the background to this story president lukashenko has maintained a tight grip on power since 1904 silencing nearly all forms of dissents but since been facing unprecedented opposition this year a struggling economy and the pandemic have made things much worse anger against the sword's after his disputed reelection in early august his challenger to kind of

skier had to flee it's a lithuania and fear police serve crack there are waves of process since then and moral position leaders have been forced to leave bella reuss while western they disapprove to size look at schenker russian president vladimir putin is backing him saying he's ready to send troops in if needs it's let's get more on this note from alex co-chair of he's a political risk analyst with i.h.s. market country risk joins me now from london via skype it's good to have you with us where in something of a stalemates it would appear. that these process do seem to be getting the ball the persistence but the government does seem to be cracking down on them how do you explain this why are we seeing such violence. towards these protesters. i think the crackdown today with mass detentions and also use of what the cannons
9:05 pm
and the crowd control measures by the right police in the roost is probably aimed to improve negotiating position for alexander lukashenko. in his upcoming talks with russia. wants to present an image that he's in control of situation by the roast and that protests are not actually challenging his role well he may be wishing to present a certain image of himself but unfortunately vladimir putin can watch t.v. as well and it certainly doesn't look like he's saying control of anything given the situation and how much of a game changer we see the meeting between the shank and putin will be for the country. i think this meeting you know will be will be something that both parties will attempt to exploit from the location based back to gently needs political support from russia and also potentially security support if that if the need in
9:06 pm
one arises and also he needs financial support as the government finances are in quite challenging state and. require urgent funds to meet its debt repayment obligations on the other hand lighting up putin will likely. try to use this weekend position of location. who is isolated from his own people by these large scale protests and also isolated from the west because of the western condemnation of his actions. so i think putin will try to exploit it to his own benefit by demanding certain concessions in return for any assistance to look at what sort of i mean just doesn't appear to want to get involved at all if this seems he has enough things on his plate as it is. well you know i think ultimately it comes to the pride
9:07 pm
that russia probably doesn't want to see a democratic change in a country which is forced by protesters and i think this is one of the reasons the key reason why the kremlin is likely to support location to rather than the opposition and the protesters. and from you know from putting this person 1st back to it's actually a very good opportunity to exploit the fact that is now weekend to achieve certain objectives which have failed in the past when look at that was trying to rebalance by the recent foreign policy towards the west restart mission links with the you with the united states and so on stuck in the middle of all of this of course and the people of valorise where do you think they stand right now i was is is there any way ice of this well based on what i see there is widespread opposition
9:08 pm
towards look in his administration amongst all groups of society including those which in the past used to support look at for instance pensioners or working class people employed by state owned enterprises we see that now there is a significant difference and look at people of the roots largely want to get to go but on the other hand look at decatur that he wants to stay in power no matter what's. going to get your thought said thank you so much that's out of scope sheriff a political risk analyst joining us with that analysis from london thank you thank you. it's a great snow and refugees there are being moved to a new sites on the island of less force after their camp burned down earlier this week people have been sleeping rough since the maria camp europe's largest was reduced to ash refugees are requesting humanitarian assistance and are resisting

attempts to relocate them greek police fired tear gas at protests on saturday stephanie decker has more now from lesbos where she's been speaking to some of the displaced. there is no coherent aid operation happening at all then we're almost you know 4 or 5 days since that fire. you camp that's right behind us there's been a drip of people coming here around 500 now have been moved here over the last 2 days so they've been testing everyone for corona coming in to the camp from what we understand 10 we have more specific numbers in that but tons have tested positive of course this started with $35.00 refugees having tested positive and they then mingled with the rest of the population so this is of course a concern but yes i think more importantly how are you going to provide shelter food water and
9:10 pm
a future for these people going to bring in our guests. she works for the ngo stand by me. you've been here for a very long time you've seen the situation you saw the fire yourself tell me a little bit about now what are the issues now how difficult is it what are they facing exactly like you're saying still a lot of people are missing food they're missing woodard missing shelter and also they're missing medical treatment and psychological treatment which is also highly important in this situation i mean we're talking about people who are dealing with no minimum of 4 traumas being their home country to join in the fire on top of right now i think this is the fault of everyone and people need to find new solutions in regards to providing aid like for example ourselves we were able to provide aid already today after despite not being able to enter them we just meant . people that people who couldn't get out they met those stairs so we met them in between we found new solutions to provide aid we've been talking to the refugees
9:11 pm
they want they've been here for years many of the waiting for papers to be processed waiting for an answer one of them told us we just want an all star yes or no and then you know whether that means we have to go back but it's this limbo that has taken a huge toll as you do have tens of thousands of people in refugee camps. with their lives on hold with their cases pending with question marks of what's going to happen so i think you know in that sense at least it's an important debate but certainly nothing has been resolved the greek authorities have made it very clear to the people here who want to leave the island that the moment they were believing any time soon. a ship carrying nearly 300 people on the mediterranean is appealing to be a loads in supports the migrants on board were pulled from small boats in 3 separate operations in the past week a vessel is run by the spanish charity open arms when i seen 1000 people have died is trying to cross the mediterranean in the last 6 years. plenty more since the

9:17 pm
to quote the return of or trace an ontology as a positive 1st step i sincerely hope that this will continue i said yesterday that the end of the provocations should be the beginning of a conversation we never hid the fact that we want to talk with turkey but in a peaceful atmosphere without provocations and without unilateral actions. well james carlin's is a visiting professor at the london school of economics and specializes in greek turkish relations he says the current system the current tensions rather stem from i dated sterrett oriel rules and turkey is calling for a revision. it will be a relief about the ship returning but as you heard it said this doesn't change anything it doesn't change its claims in the eastern mediterranean and of course greece has got its position but i think the hope will be that maybe this now might open up a chance to see countries that talk to each other it's an incredibly complex problem
9:18 pm
and a century i mean you know just on the through all my history 100 years ago 2 countries sorted out their borders but times change you know when they set those borders and 1923 in argentina for international law it was in a very different place and we could explore what do you want to and so there was an accident tension over this but office a has technology means that we've been able to explore much more deeply. make discoveries and it jeepers also in the eastern mediterranean as international law has allowed countries that claim even more territory and continental shelf this is all come together to create this program of the century he is all giving the priests by butchie of one particular honey on the lungs. so all these access to claim a lot of resources in the eastern mediterranean and this is essential is all about talking satanist shape into greek waters and saying look we have every right to

9:21 pm
upset because they say corruption has led to a lack of government services now the national oil corporation has said that the power cuts are in are due to the oil closures so so the diesel and gas feeding the power stations haven't been able to do to the the power stations due to the to the oil closures. the 1st direct talks between the taliban and the afghan governments are ongoing after a day of ceremony on saturday but as discussions got underway in the cancer capital there were multiple attacks back in afghanistan itself both sides are accusing the other for being responsible for the violence but despite the accusations both are being urged to seize an opportunity secure peace for future generations some of the age of 8 has been following the talks in doha center fish reports. both
9:22 pm
delegations led by the afghan government side and the taliban side have met the emir of qatar there are intraday legation talks which are sched jeweled but right now both of these delegations are deciding who is going to be meeting coom and to discuss that further we have with this one member of the delegation the misses have even said over to thank you very much for being with us describe to us how hopeful are you that this talks are going to yield some results and what is going to be the future plan of action. we are here to have this talk in discussion that's why this is the reason that we came from along from afghanistan to do that for this talk and the people of afghanistan desire for that talk and looking forward to to the talks could be happen and also now we have the support of all the international community all the country in the region that this talk should be happening so that's why we are we hope
9:23 pm
we do have hope for that and the result of course it's a long way to go in we will have a long discussion also. of course it will be not very easy. it's a bumpy road but you will see. your deal your delegation has decided it's going to be a 6 member contact committee which is going to be meeting with the taliban 1st setting of the agenda and on monday is going to be the 1st day probably of these in drive on dialogue i think so yeah tomorrow which is the which is mandated this the 2 delegations from both side the delegations from both sides will set to get out and talk about some code of conduct a procedure rule and procedure in order so the agenda setting the agenda how hopeful are you because as a woman member of the delegation somebody who is representing one of the many minorities in of gonna stand do you think that after 20 years nearly 20 years of
9:24 pm
conflict you will be able to convince the taliban to give up violence and listen to you for what you want there is no for the reason that both sides should continue for war and for conflict we have to sit together to talk there is no solution for that the best solution the better solution is to sit together to talk a political power i want to have a problem and also putting our. ideo and i joined at the table and talk about that and to get some results. but you see that this is a very difficult situation even today the government is saying there's been more than 18 attacks in the last 24 hours in various provinces the taliban is saying that there is a propaganda campaign that is being run against them so there is a lack of trust and it seems to be quite void on both sides how are you going to be
9:25 pm
able to bridge that. did is lack of trust of course it's it's common for every peace talk only peace negotiation this lack of class can be happen but unfortunately of course the evidence no. evidence from taliban side to say that inseparable again because we have the evidence we have the fire that happened today or day. blasting or or conflict so but anyway we have yesterday we've got some a positive just shared it can be a step forward for their building the trust we have to build the trust i think here and qatari cutter also. we have to to to do some just share or to show some positive. to take some positive steps for building the trust
9:26 pm
thank you very much for speaking to us and there you have at this is the view from the of gone delegation that yes there has been violence that there will might continue to be violence but they're hopeful that this level of trust that does not exist between them is going to be billed as contact groups begin the negotiations gone dialogues without international interlocutors we've been hearing from diplomats saying that they are still here they're still supporting it but from a backseat it is going to be weeks and months before this could yield results but both sides are hopeful that this is a 1st step in the right direction. halls of calls in a series of local elections across russia the vote is being seen as a test for president vladimir putin but it comes amid major protests in the east of the country and claims the kremlin ordered the poisoning of opposition leader alexina valmy something the government denies that he and barbara has more. if these elections are being watched more closely than ever it's because of
9:27 pm

9:28 pm
a message that's making inroads among some voters ok we're at the point of the it's kind of a given that everybody steals but it's one thing when someone abstract is stealing and another when it's someone specific right here among earth and someone you could put pressure on through voting. for the far eastern city of cover offs there have been large demonstrations for the past 2 months prompted by the arrest of a popular local governor while the rallies may have surprised the kremlin nobody's predicting anything other than a nationwide win for the ruling united russia but this elect. does present a new approach from vladimir putin's opponents what they're trying to do is to chip away at the kremlin's image of invincibility that the kremlin completely controls elections if through start voting about he and his team can demonstrate that there is scope for competition that there is scope for oppositions success then that might lead to a snowball effect and that's something that the kremlin is incredibly worried about
9:29 pm
. as in the past there have been complaints about irregularities the social media video appears to show officials stuffing ballot boxes in the rostov on don region al-jazeera cannot independently verify this footage but once all the results are in they should provide an idea of the main battlegrounds for next year's parliamentary elections the dean barba al-jazeera. still to come on out to c.n.n. he came leaderboards johnson is accused of embarrassing the nation over bricks it spiked to now former prime minister it's unclear how none of my only concern was to get my books out so that i can study and sit in my examination as i am to sit in a student still term and to succeed in the face of devastating floods cross school have the sports in the sights that many barcelona fans feared they would never see again oh that's an international.

9:33 pm
a violent crackdown against protesters in bella roofs with tens of fires and most of protesters are marching in the capital many demanding the resignation of president alexander lukashenko over last month's disputed election because franco will be heading to russia on monday to meets reserve army of putin's russia has said it could send forces into bell abuse if needed and refugees on the greek island of law sponsored be moved into a new site after their camp burnt down last week refugees are requesting humanitarian assistance and are resisting attempts to relocate them. in the u.k. to former prime ministers have urged m.p.'s to reject a government bill that threatens to violate parts of an earlier agreements with the e.u. tony blair and john major's say that boris johnson's proposed bill is quote embarrassing
9:34 pm
the nation they say will damage the peace process in northern ireland johnson is proposing changes to the agreements on movement between northern ireland and the republic of violence which was put in place to prevent a so-called hard border on's foreign minister says the move has eroded trust between the u.k. and arlen's. the british government in my view is behaving in an extraordinary way and british people need to know the us because outside of britain. where this issue is being discussed no the reputation of the u.k. and britain as a trusted negotiating partner on important issues like this is being damaged in a very serious way. u.s. house speaker nancy pelosi has warned there will be no trade deal with washington if the british government undermines the 1908 good friday agreement which ends its years of conflicts in northern ireland's good friday accords are very high priority
9:35 pm
for us democrats and republicans house and senate so that if the u.k. did anything to undermine the good friday accord they should not as i told them in the u.k. for different elements of but as a patient there they should not even think about having a u.s. u.k. i lateral trade agreement well earlier we spoke to alistair campbell who served as a spokesman for tony blair he thinks it's extraordinary that politicians from across party lines are united in their criticism of prime minister boris johnson. the country i'm afraid elected a complete charlatan as prime minister and i think the country is beginning to see that perhaps more clearly i think over tony blair and john major tony blair has you say used the word wrong sometimes tells me that i go to over the top in my
9:36 pm
criticisms of boris johnson and he was held back i think in terms of some of his rhetoric about johnson but john major. a conservative prime minister who was hearing trees amaze time although he had very different views on some issues pretty much kept his head down i think to him to come out today and combine with a labor prime minister and say what they have said together about the current prime minister about the current government's handling of the brits in goshen the damage they're doing to u.k. standing around the world i think is extraordinary and the worry for me however is that a lot of these m.p. and you have tory m.p.'s i suspect that their vision of their version of what the jury party is in 2020 doesn't bear sufficient relation to what john major's jory parts of it and i think the 2 big points that they're making really one to the damage done to our reputation in the world when he openly have
9:37 pm
a prime minister and the cabinet saying that they see nothing wrong in breaking an international treaty breaking their word it was as you say negotiated a few months ago under which he won a general election and secondly the direct and significant threat that this poses to the good friday agreement a what it shows is that john major and tony blair care about that and boris johnson doesn't. more than a 1000000 people have been displaced by severe flooding in western and central africa in the share at least 65 people have died in large parts of the capital remain underwater these areas one of the world's driest countries but the rainy season hasn't tense a fight in recent years which has been linked to climate change in sudan hundreds of thousands of people displaced by heavy flooding are calling for more help their homes were destroyed by the worst flooding in a century tens of thousands of students are among those whose lives are being disrupted here morgan reports from khartoum on home many are struggling to keep up

9:39 pm
a place to stay and study and so we can prepare for examinations the examinations which are usually held in march every year have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic so then the government sets up demba 13 as the new date more than 150000 students will take part in the capital alone a rise in the river to levels not seen in more than a century caused devastating floods in many parts of sudan it's led the government to declare a state of emergency and announced the country as a natural disaster zone more than 100 people were killed and hundreds of thousands displaced schools in several towns and villages were among the damaged properties tens of thousands of those displaced by the floods are school students and many are due to sit for their high school general certificate this year but for those students sitting for examination to guarantee seats in universities in the future is hard when their families have lost most or all of their belongings so dan has set up a committee to deal with the impacts of the floods the head of the committee says
