9:03 pm
i mean is not the 1st time. we've seen a nicole file of ethnic clashes or violence based on ethnicity. and if you actually, even before the operation began, it was an alarming rate. something that has led to the displacement of more than 2000000 people in the past 2 years. but we are seeing a new level of the problem, given the huge amount of hate speech and incitement, all social media. but also organizations like the european human rights commission, talking about people being targeted just because of the absolutely office. also of the commission say they visited some prisoners in in prison. and that they fled their complaint that there was only arrested because of which they community they would community. they heard from all the killings in my cobra has shocked the nation to the whole area. we spoke to our on my show, who is

a senior adviser and spokesperson for the ethiopian human rights commission, is calling on the government to provide immediate humanitarian assistance to the region. phone lines remain cut off in the region so it's makes, making it very difficult to gather as much information is needed and corroborate some of the claims made over the last 1011 days. but having said that, there have been allegations that a massacre of civilians took place in my car drain south west and the european human rights commission has dispatched a team already there and that team will carry out an investigation that will be made public pomp occlusion. its work in the meantime as well. we've continued to receive information from certain parts of the country from people who facing discrimination and exclusion on account of their ethnicity. we've visited police
9:05 pm
stations, we've spoken to people who are being detained there and we're monitoring these claims very cozy. in the meantime, the ethiopian human rights commission is calling for due care to avoid the risk of ethnic profiling. and in discrimination. the allegations are very, very serious. and that's why we are deploying, deploying a team to gather the facts. we're also, we've also made recommend, we're also making recommendations in order to safeguard lives. in the point we're making is it's a, it's a vital that there is a swift delivery of humanitarian assistance. and services, and for this reason, the ethiopian human rights commission is calling for a prompt creation of a humanitarian assistance desk at the level of the federal government that enable
9:06 pm
the provision of humanitarian assistance. we also call for the necessary support to be given to the red cross because there are allegations that some of their vehicles have been shot up. so we are calling for them to to be, to be given the supports that provide essential services. in other world news, ethnic armenians have been leaving ahead of sunday's handover of land to azerbaijan . some set fire to their homes as they left for some they came for a last pilgrimage. very soon, the monastery of that event will be off limits to armenians nestled in a mountain gorge and killed by john a district west of the unclear of the corner. that's about to be returned to her. but german, russian peacekeepers are already here giving people a sense of safety, a final prayer, one more memory, a little souvenir to take back home. there's an overwhelming sense of defeat,
9:07 pm
a monger mean years, often too difficult to express. stopping the war was the right thing, but not like this. it's unfair, but we have to do it. it was an equal fight. the eyes of the world are wide open, but the world preferred oil and gold instead of justice and they sacrificed us, even though as ever journey has promised to save god historical and religious sites . many fear they will be disagreed. it is still crossed as to tear, for centuries is now being dismantled along the road. and meg's it is towards armenia. people who were given only 6 days to pack belongings, accumulated over a lifetime are fleeing among them retreating armenian forces. and while they head out, russian peacekeepers are being deployed in kill, but many people are not intent on leaving behind what they have built up over the past 3 decades. their sense of despair couldn't be bored, clear. smoke billowing from their homes, that they've purposely set on fire. the memories of lifetimes in ashes about
9:08 pm
$5000.00 ethnic armenians lived here. there's barely any one left village after village deserted. if you still remaining, are preparing to leave soon, it's history that repeats itself. somehow, these are the ruins of the house of unnecessary family. many others lived in this area and they had to leave when azerbaijan lost the 1st kind of a hole or in the early 1990, s. and armenia occupied this region back then hundreds of thousands of as aires which is staffed of the looker about and the 7 surrounding districts, but some, i mean is like several men at 2nd yan also had to relocate. and now he's doing so again, we're going to raise one of them. we're not leaving, we're being thrown out as a bludgeon expelled us with this war. painful, i was insta penikett fighting. when i heard about the ceasefire. i didn't think about it, but it turns out that i've been displaced once more. i'm going to armenia, but i have no place thrown on to the streets. as we head out,
9:09 pm
an orange globe brightens the night. more houses set ablaze and no one around. i mean in presence here is truly over. this is the story of a capital, a ship, a departure with no date of return. but they still hope that one day they will come back, put up that home, eat al-jazeera, killed by jar. and al jazeera says, hamad bin job as harry, capital bamako. he explains the peace deal and what it means for civilians. as the deal is being signed between the armenians, the a very independent of the russians, the turks will not be present inside nagorno-karabakh. the turks will be part of the peacekeeping centers, but will be established close to the line of control the line of actual contact. and that is where they will be based. many of these details are still emerging. how many will they be? what will be their remit? what can they do? what will happen if they find something which is not in accordance with what others
9:10 pm
by john or the armenians want? so a lot of that is being thrashed out the other even the armenians are not take directly talking to each other and the, talking to each of the wire intermediaries. so, yes, it is slowly unfolding, as we see what we know is deadline, is that this 3 surrounding areas around the going to karbala, have to be vacated by armenian forces, have to be handed over to azerbaijan. russian peacekeepers are going to come in and then the other by joining forces are going to take control of their borders when there is a curfew that has been implemented in the areas that have been taken by the azerbaijani forces. the police forces for the last 28 years, who are stationed on this side of the divide have been asked to come, and so it is going to slowly unfold. and i asked one of the generals of the other by john the military, that what will it take to build trust between these 2 sides? and he stopped paused and he said in a word, tight, rival factions in libya have agreed to hold nationwide elections in december of
9:11 pm
next year. it was announced at the u.n. sponsored talks in tunis, delegation negotiating the appointment of an interim government military representatives have also been meeting in certain french or libya. they're discussing the implementation of a cease fire deal signed last month. mali traina has more from the libyan city of misrata. now we just heard that the head of the high council of state called initially welcomed the date set for elections. but i think a lot of libyans here are also skeptical that elections can actually take place. i always miss a policy elections take place here in misrata in september, others over 35 minutes to polities scheduled to hold elections in western libya before the end of the year. but as far as national elections, there's, a lot of skepticism as in terms of if they can take place. now the u.n. the u.n. has, has said that this is a breakthrough. but also what, what the libyans have discussed so far is the general general kind of general
9:12 pm
issues coming up, for instance, you know, to stop the bloodshed, to unify all the state institutions to hold elections. but what they're discussing now is appointing a new government and presidential council. and this is where things are likely to get a little bit more a visit. because in western libya, more logically for have to are seen as a war criminal. he has failed military campaign because over 125000 homes have been destroyed. hundreds of thousands were displaced. many died in the fighting. so any government that is seen to be pro, have to or might be refused here in western libya and vice versa. any, any government that's seen as pro western libya might be refused by eastern libya. so really the next day or 2 is as is really going to tell us whether or not the u.n. sponsored talks will be able to come out with a real political solution in libya. as more ahead on this news hour,
9:13 pm
including faces a choice between russia and europe as it heads into a presidential runoff. 5 percent of the folks said that enter the hospital with covais don't make it out. sounding me and on and energy people tell us state c.s.t. rising on a virus infections ahead of the holiday season and in sports, and historic win for argentina's money team against 3 time long time news event. and i have the details. next supporters of us present donald trump have gathered in washington d.c. in what's being billed as the 1000000, my grandma ch. as staging it near the white house in a display of support for trump's effort to stay in power counter, protesters have also turned out to meet them. drove out to wave to the crowds area . it's been exactly one week now since joe biden was declared the us president
9:14 pm
elect, but still hasn't. can see that live to wrong thing. jordan in washington d.c. . so how is this set trump, maggie march shaping up in d.c. today. ross? well, it's a few 1000 people who are over at freedom plaza, which is farther away from the white house than we are from our vantage point overlooking lafayette park and the north lawn of the white house. that said, it is a rather nice day here in the fall in washington. and so you have a lot of people who believe that the u.s. president is the rightful winner of the election. something that is not for the alj by the vote, tallies at all 50 states and they are trying to show their support for the u.s. president as well as demand recounts of the votes, particularly in the so-called battleground, states. the states where of the political parties are,
9:15 pm
have so much equal influence that whichever party prevails, essentially, is giving the victory to a presidential candidate. but again, there hasn't been any whole scale fraud filed in any of the 50 states according to state elections. officials made that announcement a couple of days ago, and there have been problems that the trump campaign has run into in trying to challenge the vote in a number of these battleground states. either they have put forward flimsy evidence, which judges have a lot or they have put forward flimsy witnesses who cannot corroborate actual instances of voter fraud. and so this is a situation where it's really, people really venting their views about a situation that simply does not jibe with their perception. the fact is, joe biden collected at least 5300000 more votes than donald trump on november 3rd.
9:16 pm
yeah, but this has meant a difficult start for the biden team bras. how are they handling this complicated transition process? well, everyone has been focused on the fact that donald trump has not conceded the election . it's a tradition, it's not a legal requirement. the legal requirement is for the administrator of the general services administration, basically the logistics agency for the u.s. federal government to sign a letter that all the rises, members of joe biden's transition team to have the money to actually run background checks on people who would become cabinet officials and other officials who need senate confirmation to be able to set up offices so that they can actually look at the work of the trumpet ministration and figure out what steps need to be taken in order to keep the u.s. government running. once there's a new president in office, that is a complication. while joe biden does have
9:17 pm
a lot of senior experienced people on his team. they don't have the details out. so sometimes with security clearances, to be able to see how the u.s. government is running right now, that is something that could be problematic if his transition team doesn't get that authorization as quickly as possible. otherwise they'll have, they'll be about 2 months behind when he is sworn in on january 20th. thank you very much, ross and jordan in washington d.c. . now donald trump has created his movement within a tight 2 party system. traditionally, the democratic party's more socially liberal. they believe in government solutions like providing universal health care. republicans on the other hand, believe in small government, they're fiscally and socially conservative, but movement is different from traditional republicanism. he won the election in 2016 with his make america great again message and unified, his base with his america 1st principles. that pin is on his political platform, include opposition to immigration, and protecting domestic industries from foreign competition. let's discuss this now
9:18 pm
with joe walsh was a former republican congressman. he's via skype from chicago. thank you so much, mr. walsh, for being with us. let me ask you 1st why there are still so many republicans backing trump today, including mitch mcconnell. why keep alive this possibility that he might have a legitimate claim and risk their chances in the senate race? because donald trump, who owns the republican party, this is what's so sad in really very dangerous about what's going on in america right now. joe biden would be for the 1st time in my lifetime, i think for the 1st time in american history, we have a president who is refusing to accept the will of the people. now the problem is none of his supporters will accept this election result. so why do mitch mcconnell and all the other republicans go on with what trump is doing right now?
9:19 pm
because the republican party is, all of these voters are heroes in they don't want to lose those voters. so regardless of how he decides to close this particular chapter, donald tom de think is still remain, you'll still remain a force within the republican party even when he's not a leader in. yeah, and it must be clear, donald trump will never concede. he will never say biden won, he would never say he last saw the white house. ok. he will leave the white house with his ally that the election was stolen from him. all of his supporters will believe him. and then for the next 4 years, donald trump will own the republican party. they will all have to kiss his ring. he may well one again in 2024. and if he does, nobody could beat him. now they've been speculation that he may run again. somewhat 70000000 people who voted for him have not necessarily been traditional republicans, though many voted because they didn't want to vote for biden. for instance,
9:20 pm
it seems today that the soul and character of the republican party is in question. is that stake? do you think they can have a go back to what they were before? this is too much damage being done. i think too much damage has been done and i've said it before. i'll say it again. i think we're watching the republican party die . i think donald trump is the last dying gasp of the party. there is no room in the party for conservatives like me who do not support donald trump. the problem again for republicans, is he will, he will have as much control over the party for the next 4 years, even after his last, as he did as president. so what are we going to see happen then, to the republican party? are we going to see a split? i think you're going to see it put a split. i think the republican party will continue to shrink and eventually it will by there are not enough troops supporters to ever win nationwide,
9:21 pm
and there aren't enough republicans like me who don't support trump to ever win nationwide. so i think eventually you're going to see a 3rd political party overtake the republican party. there was, you know, a few years ago there was concern about the tea party movement which eventually fade aids. do you think because it didn't have a leader do you think, can we compare what's happening to the republican party to that movement then? and do you think, you know, what does john need to do to keep this move? this moving this particular movement going well, i was a lifelong republican. i left the republican party this past year because literally the party became a cold. they no longer stand for ideas or any sort of a platform. they worship this man. and all this man has to do is send off, which we or hold a rally,
9:22 pm
and he will freeze the rest of the republican party. his supporters will go down with him. they will believe every last word. so as long as he's around trump is will be alive and well. thank you so much for talking to us. joe walsh, former republican congressman and coming to us there from chicago. thank you very much for your time. now moldova is set for a presidential runoff on sunday, after no candidates won a majority in the 1st round pro russian incumbent. igor don is up against paul e.u. opposition candidate, maya sunda as been a better campaign. and the poll soviet country is at a crossroads with many watching which direction it will take. jazeera sonia gaggle reports from the capital kisha. now a final cheer from the party faithful. the supporters of the socialists giving a candid it incumbent president equal to that on the reassurance that he has their vote from the old guard to the younger generation. and moldova though
9:23 pm
don is moscow's man and has campaigned on close relations with russia. he says the country will fare best united under his vision. problems and sisters, we have something to lose. moldova has something to lose. we must all be united together. ok, he's of enough message, but not one for his political rivals. i want opponents got cocky and now they're gagging for a punch in the face past the only language they understand. that's why we need to be hard on them. i mean, maybe if you had a lot of minutes here, as there are here, i miss ali, but he's also lost a leg on this question is enough votes to win a game? this is the candidate who has given cause for concern by
9:24 pm
a sound to the leader of the action and solidarity party in a campaign which has seen her being maligned for being among other things. a woman with pro-west and political ideals, she says what moldova needs is a marked change from the problems that have held it back. i hope that people will believe in because there has been so much disappointment in the past. we have had such an opportunity to so i was a 9 when there was a massive support for european political parties. and then these parties, unfortunately disappointed people because they got into correction. reforming one of europe's poorest countries has been a challenge that has defied previous leaders, corruption and poverty are the main concerns. there is also a demographic crisis caused by tens of thousands of people leaving to work in other countries every year. but it means that the moldova diaspora is an important voting
9:25 pm
bloc, and it's reflected in the numbers of people who mostly live and work in the west. over the last 4 years, almost 150000, small citizens fled the country. because the way how this country is governed and the fact that it's despite the fundament along towns motivated their participation, definitely shows the link with the country and the with the future of this country . this is a decisive election in moldova. it's a battle for its political soul, a choice that can see its ideals, staying east with all that russia can offer, or go west for a different view. so now i go, al-jazeera kish, now still ahead on al-jazeera morocco launches a military operation in the western sahara and ending any 30 year ceasefire. that's growing. fears will tell you why farmers in ivory coast are feeling better and what it means for the world's chocolates. a bucket and swarthy horseracing is making its
