stin tice. >> austin went missing in syria. >> campaigning for his release and maintaining hope. >> austin tice is alive. >> find him and get him home. >> a special "talk to al jazeera". tomorrow, 5:30 eastern. >> hello, from doha, this is the news hour on al jazeera. name the enemy. an egyptian court rules hamas a terrorist organization. calling for a transparent investigation after a russian political figure is shot and killed in kremlin. >> coming up we'll find our emergency crews are coping with dozens of avalanches, and the heavy heaviest snow that this
10:01 am
valley has seen in decades. >> and physical versus digital. we look at why the multi billion dollar gaming industry is now considered a serious sport. >> western nations have long used the word terrorist to describe hamas. an egyptian court has ruled hamas a terrorist organization, which the group itself calls a dangerous precedence. hamas said that it does not meddle in egyptian affairs. egypt accuses hamas of supporting fight necessary north
10:02 am
sinai, that have launched attacks against egyptian security forces. hamas strongly denies than. we go to the deputy foreign minister of hamas who we spoke to earlier. he said that the decision comes as a shock. >> we're very shocked. i think this will support israeli against hamas. i think is a big shame. a big shame nat judicial system in egypt and i think that this will give it more support more umbrella in order to continue its occupation against our people and i think in two years
10:03 am
they have no one proof that hamas has been involved in any action against egyptian army or egyptian people. >> we'll be talking with a member of the palestinian initiative in a moment, but there is more news coming out of egypt, sentencing the spiritual guide of the muslim brotherhood and 18 horse to life in jail. mohammed dad badie was sentenced. badie had already been given the death penalty and life term in two other cases. in addition to mohammed badie his close allies were also sentenced to life in prison. the men are facing murder
10:04 am
charges in connection with the death of 12 people outside of the muslim brotherhood cairo headquarters in 2013. the violence occurred four days before president mohamed morsi was deposed in a military coup. about 22,000 people have been arrested since then. most of the senior members of the banned muslim brotherhood are already. in jail. we'll bring you more on that story in a moment, but right now to justice where the president has promised to bring to justice those who killed political leader boris nemtsov. the latest on this story from rory challands. >> reporter: if you want a symbolic location for a killing this is it.
10:05 am
we're literally meters from the walls of the kremlin, and late on friday night this is where boris nemtsv was shot dead. people have brought flowers for the man who was the hope, and they thought he could have been president himself. >> boris nemtsov had received death threats before, but he brushed them aside and said if he were afraid he wouldn't be leading an opposition party. he was killed in front of the kremlin, shot four times by a passinger. >> he was big, handsome, bright and talented, the very kind that they kill. we needed him very much.
10:06 am
>> this is a new spiral in russia's descent into a fascist state. this is obvious. it is a political murder of one of the brightest opposition politicians. >> he was killed two days before he was supposed to lead an opposition march in moscow. now there anger within the opposition movement, and some are calling his death an assassination. this is a man once considered to be a potential successor to former president boris yeltsin. but instead yeltsin chose a little-known spy chief vladimir putin. the opposition that he fought for found it harder and and harder in russia. vladimir putin ordered a full
10:07 am
investigation into nemtsov's death. but those who knew him said that the government did nothing when he received threats. before he died he had been working on a report that he said proved that russia was involved in the separatist movement in ukraine and had evidence of inefficiency and corruption. many now want to hold a rally for the man they saw as a voice holding the government accountable. >> rory, the obvious question is who did it and why? any thoughts on motive at this point? >> this is an opinion that you get different answers depending on who you are. the opposition people feel certain that there is a direct political motivation for this killing. there are not many people absolutely accusing the kremlin, but many people are saying that the atmosphere that the kremlin has created in russia, has
10:08 am
engendered an environment by which a murder of this sort could happen. i was at a protest rally a week ago that was pro-kremlin talking about how a maidan revolution should never happen in russia. and there were pictures of nemtsov, calling him a traitor. that's how many thought of him. we're getting more from the investigators as well. different things that maybe he was in league with certain ukrainian businessmen who wants him dead because he disappointed them in trying to instill revolution and unrest in russia. possibly this is a personal matter to do with a girlfriend, a jealousy. that sort of thing. different opinions depending on who you talk to, and depending on which side of the political spectrum you exist on in russia. >> rory challands 37 thank you for that. we go to london to speak with
10:09 am
the former ambassador to russia. tell us about your relationship with him and what you knew of him? >> he was a fine man full of life and very much attached to the principles to make our world work. i think the most important word in what vladimir putin said about him and his desire to investigate this crime is the word provocation, which is intended to suggest that some how or another nemtsov was murdered by his own side in some complicated plot. i don't believe that for a moment. >> you won't believe the idea of transparent investigation then, either? >> it would be the first such investigation they've had so far, so it would be most unusual. it's unlikely. >> but this is the thing, it's up to russia to do this sort of thing, and who can really put pressure on them to do this? this is technically an internal
10:10 am
matter and i guy russia has already got plenty of enemies out there who would think that it was responsible in some way or another. what impetus is there on russia to do this? >> well, there are pressures on them to do it, if you like, but also to pretend to do it, just as the same with the mh 17 downing, they never admitted any responsibility whatsoever, they have thrown out wild theories for other possibilities and they would do exactly the same thing in the case of nemtsov. in is not to accuse putin personally of ordering his murder that is improbable, and you would never prove it if it was true. but this is to say that this is the result of the sort of universe in russia that is created by the propaganda. the atmosphere of xenophobia, the anti-west propaganda and
10:11 am
portraying what is going on in ukraine as a fascist coup, all of these things go into a bundling of lies that are behind the necessary approach behind this shameful act. >> if you could hear our correspondent a little bit earlier, rory challands, he and i were discussing motive. could you discuss the why over the who? >> well, the most obvious motive was the documentation that he was preparing on the involvement of russian troops in ukraine. i think the motivation is more general than that. nemtsov had influence, but not that much. they made a big mistake in whoever they are in killing him because now he will become an iconic figure, meaning someone who will symbolize a great deal of what people know and feel is
10:12 am
wrong in present-day russia. now he has gained importance that he might not have achieved on his own. >> thank you--oh, carrien. >> beyond that i can't suggest any--it's irrational foolish criminal act. >> andrew, we thank you for your thoughts on this story. thank you for joining us on this news hour. >> my pleasure. >> we're back to the top story that is hamas the palestinian group based in gaza being designated as a terrorist organization by egypt. we go to the secretary of the palestinian national movement. thank you for your time. this has been called a shock. do you think this is a shock as well? >> i think this is a very wrong decision and totally unjustified. i hope it's not politically motivated, but this is definitely a wrong decision. hamas is not a terrorist organization. it is part of the palestinian
10:13 am
national movement. such decision would have not only the relationship between the israeli and egyptian people, which is very important to all of us, but it would help egyptians rule. egyptians rule at the arabic level, and rule as sponsor of palestinian unity talks and egyptian rule as important neighbor to palestine. i hope this decision, which is probably i am improper will be rectify and reaction will take place. i must emphasize that we build a very big hope between the palestinian and egyptian peoples, and we don't agree with any kind of intervention in any other country affairs including egypt, but at the same time, we don't think that such a decision would serve the interest of either the palestinian people or the egyptian people. >> even if you say hamas is not
10:14 am
a terrorist group and is part of the palestinian unity initiative, there are plenty of other countries and groups out there which say that hamas is a terrorist group. do you think those countries that put pressure on egypt? go i don't know about that. i think this issue is remuch related to the egyptian issues with the muslim brotherhood movement and and at the same time i must say that the real country that is practicing terrorism here and practically is a state terrorist is israel. we hope that there will be a discussion of simple kind. one has to remember that the main country helping egypt's interest in this region is israel, which we know about the conspiracies of which against the supply of water for the nile
10:15 am
in egypt about the israeli efforts to limit egyptian rule in africa. >> so how do you think this might impact the people in gaza physically? because you've got the raqqa crossing, that was used almost as a relief valve. that would allow people in and out because it was not 100% controlled by israel. do you think that will be shut down completely, and people of gaza will be stuck even more? >> there are no other people suffering more than the palestinian people in gaza today in the world. gaza is besieged on every direction. they lack drinking water. 95% of the water in gaza is pull lieutenanted or sal lynn nateed. nobody can tolerate such conditions. this is a very dangerous matter.
10:16 am
not only to palestinians, but to the whole region. in my opinion one very important factor here that could deter such resolutions is to advance the palestinian unity as soon as possible. this is the responsibility of all palestinian groups. we need our unity as soon as possible. we need unified leadership so that such situations as the one that just arrived in egypt will not appear again. we need the unity of palestinians. we're all union need in our struggle against occupation, and against the worst terrorism in the 12thin the 21st century from israel. >> we thank you for your time. the jailed leader of turkey's main rebel group has called on its followers to call on his weapons and ends it's 31-year struggle. they made the comments in a
10:17 am
statement read out on television. kurdish rebels had been fighting for more autonomy in turkey decades. we have more from istanbul. >> the jailed leader of the pkk says that this is an historic call to replace an armed struggle with democratic politics, and turkey's deputy prime minister, well, he says that both sides are closer than ever to peace. so perhaps since the declaration of the cease-fire in 2013 this is the most significant statement since then. not cease-fire effectively brought to an end to an armed struggle in the turkish state and turkish separatists but had seen more than 40,000 people killed since 198,437 but that peace process has stalled because kurdish leaders say that the turkish government has promised reform. now the turkish government wants
10:18 am
those peace talks to start again. but turkish--kurdish political leaders, particularly the main kurdish leader said that before this can go ahead he wants a security bill pushed through parliament. it would give police wide range stronger powers. it was introduced after riots killed more than 50 people. the kurdish people say that gives the government too much power however there are national elections in turkey in the summer, after those elections the ruling at party watts to change the constitution to create a more executive presidency. it may need kurdish political help to push through to change
10:19 am
that constitution. >> still ahead on the news hour 37 protecting iraq's precious past the national museum opens in baghdad days after isil fighters destroy valuable statues in mosul. italy's anti-immigrant movement we'll be live at that rally, and in sport new zealand and australia put on a thriller of a cricket cup. >> now, at least 21 people have been killed in twin blasts in western iraq. a car bomb went off in a busy market in diyala province. in a crowd a second vehicle exploded and at least 44 people were injured. iraq's prime minister has promised to track down and punish those possibly for the
10:20 am
destruction of rare artifacts in mosul. the city is controlled by isil. the national museum in baghdad is being reopened, we have reports on that. >> reporter: this isn't the first time that the museum has reopened but officials hope that this reopening will last. [applause] the museum had planned the ceremony weeks ago. with the destruction of ancient statues in mosul iraq's prime minister tells us that it became even more important. >> today we're opening this museum to send a message. we'll protect this heritage. this museum contains a lot of this heritage. there are sites for this heritage. we want the help of the world. we ask that the u.n. security council to protect the iraqi heritage. >> isil has been selling antiquityies as well as selling
10:21 am
them. he called on other countries to help stop that trade. the iraq museum is still recovering from looting in 2003 after the u.s.-led invasion. many of the most important pieces that were stolen when baghdad fell have been recovered. but until now it's been considered too dangerous to fully open the museum. the museum has not really been closed. it's been open to dignitaries and school groups for more than a decade, but this reopen something intended to achieve what the others haven't allowing all iraqis to come and see more than 5,000 years of their heritage. it's the world's her stage as well. and artists almost 5,000 years ago created this marble sculpture, one of the world's earliest sculptures of the human face. it was recovered in intact. but this vase was found in pieces and restored. this is what remains of a
10:22 am
sumerian princess found in the royal princess piecing together her gold head dress but there is still security concerns. >> we still need more security, especially with the things made of gold. there are so many golden things. so in a safe place. >> one of the most famous peaces in ancient musical instrument, the golden lyre still has the rep mr. can of the golden ram's head on display. and one of the most treasured objects every excavated. for now iraqis will be able to see the remnants of a sophisticateed civilization thousands of years old at a time when so much of it is being destroyed. al jazeera. baghdad.
10:23 am
>> the united nations envoy to syria is headed to damascus for a two-day visit. trying to get the rebels and president bashar al-assad's government to agree to a truce in the city of aleppo. last week he said that the syrian government indicated its willingness to temporarily halt all aerial bombardments over the city. they'll send a team in to aleppo to examine conditions there. showing support for president hadi. demonstrateors denounced the coup by houthi rebels earlier this month. president hadi fled to aden after escaping being on house arrest. of. the italian navy is getting ready to carry out a military exercise off the coast of libya.
10:24 am
it's warships will begin drills on monday. italy has an underwater pipeline that carries crude from libya to sicily. in recent months there have been attacks on oil installations on libya, forcing ports to shut down. and still with italy thousands of right-wing activists are rallying against immigration in rome. it's demanding the government to do more to keep out immigrants. they're trying to capitalize on anticipate immigration sentiments before elections. there are also rival protests under way. let's find out what is happening at those protests. we go live to rome. what is happening? >> well, this is the last place you would expect a rally. in the past 20 years it has been
10:25 am
falling rome accusing the central government of stealing from the country to finance itself. and yes here they are. this square is one of rome's main square, and it could be at least 50,000 people. it's not quite as full but let's say there are 30,000 people. most of them have come from the north because the northern league has, of course, a great appeal in the north of italy because the party has been calling for secession, the break up just more autonomy of the northern region. but with the new leader, they want to take the northern league out of the north and make it more nationwide. it has been appealing for anti-immigration anti-sentiment to try to make this party nationwide.
10:26 am
it has not really worked because since elected leaders in 2013 the support of the northern league went from 6% to 13%. now some want more and to do more they want to start from here in rome. >> if you can still hear me, i'm interested to know how long this movement has had its strength? is it capitalizing on anti-immigration movement across the rest of europe, or has this always been bubbling along in italy? >> well, no, it has been expanding in europe because they want to partner with marine la pens the national front in france to the point later on they would send a video message of support here during this rally for the leader, and for the northern league. so they have openly expressed and openly said that he has been
10:27 am
inspired by marie la pens of france to nationalize the far right party. that once again has worked. because it is now the northern league become the single biggest right wing party in the whole of italy according to the latest polls. even bigger than the party found founded. >> we're live at that protest in rome. thank you for that. lesotho elections we'll be live in the capitol. and continuing violence in myanmar force thousands to seek shelter in monsteries. and golf's world number one not happy about missing the cut. we'll have more on sport a

10:32 am
>> well, people came out early to the polls despite having to come two years earlier than they thought vealed. there was real enthusiasm. these are people who have suffered a lot without a stable government. they finally want a government that can do what they want, who can bring them the healthcare and the roads and education all the things that have been missing over the few years of unstable governments. with me i have the he had of the a.c. observer mission and he has been observing the polls of the day. how have you seen it? has it been free and fair, to your reckoning? >> i think generally things have gone well. we were here early in the morning when the stations opened at 7:00. and very very full with people.
10:33 am
the voting has been very organized, it has gone on very peacefully. the security fears have been unfounded. there was only one incident reported where there was a problem at a voting station. but the security moved in quickly and replaced ballots with the correct ones. >> there was only five months to bring this poll together between opt of last year when they decided that there were going to have this poll early until now. has it been better than you expected given the short amount of time to arrange it? >> certainly. you know there have been a lot of challenges.
10:34 am
they've been held ahead of the scheduled time i would say that the election commission has done a good job in trying to get the resources need. moving in and assure that the security and security forces, the police under the military are moved from being partisan in this exercise. this has helped tremendously. >> this has been one of the big problems here as the biases between the police and the military defending on whether it was the prime minister or the deputy prime minister. but any way now that we're at the end of the polling days, the polls are closed. people will be waiting for those results. and we will hear in the coming
10:35 am
days who it is that comes out as victory was. >> we'll talk about that later. ericerica wood. thank you. president barack obama has given the homeland security one more week of funding. it follows the divisive split in congress. they have now 11 days to find a permanent solution to the funding problems. >> the u.s. congress has now agreed on a stop-gap measure to fund the department of homeland security for seven days. that means that members of the border patrol, the cost guard and the president who works as part of the secret service security detail will go to work as they were always expected to, but now they know they'll be getting a paycheck. there will be continued debate on capitol hill on how to fund this department beyond the seven days. and that is where the real
10:36 am
controversy comes in. that's because there are many on capitol hill that feel that this funding should be tied to an issue on immigration that is deeply controversial in this country. that is the executive order put in place by president obama late last year that would allow a pathway to citizenship for millions of people that have entered the united states illegally. if you look at the election last november many americans elected members of congress from the republican party to roll back this executive action that they say is unconstitutional, that the president did not have the legal authority to do, and that is why we are having this debate right now. those members of congress feel they must deliver on that promise to their constituents. they must roll back this order that has been put in place by president obama and they're doing so trying to tie this measure to legislation to fund homeland security. in the end they were unsuccessful, and suspect they will try again. that is why there is continued to be debate and arguing on
10:37 am
capitol hill of how to fund homeland security beyond seven days and the wider issue too of how the republicans hope to roll back the executive order on immigration. >> cuba and the united states have held a second round of talks on restoring relations. diplomats from both sides met in washington, d.c. the u.s. wants embassies reopened by april. cuba wants to be removed from an u.s. terrorism list. back in december barack obama and fidel castro moved to restore ties. opportunities being discussed in the women's summit in chile. they've had some success breaking the political glass ceiling, now corruption cases are now eroding the image of women leaders. >> south america the only continent with not one or two
10:38 am
but three female presidents. all three are serving second terms in office, and all three are in the hot seat. bad enough that under leadership brazil's economy had shrunk. but what has some opponents asking for her impeachment is a multi billion dollar corruption scandal. >> the petro brass scandal has deeply impacted brazil's political system, it's the biggest scandal in brazilian history with billions of dollars going to different parties.
10:39 am
>> argentina's cristina kirchner whose approval rating has fallen to the low 20's is plagued by corruption charge involving her deceased husband business partners and her staff. while she denies them all the courts are investigating putting the president on a head-on collision with the judge's and prosecutors. even chile's president considered squeaky clean has seen her popularity plunge in-to-the low 30's in the last two weeks. her son was forced to resign as head of a charity amid allegations that he and his wife abused their position to obtain privileged access to a $10 million bank loan. argentine deputy said that it's a pity that women who are making history as presidents are embroiled in scandal. >> but women politics are not
10:40 am
better or worse than women. they're just new. we are new this politics. we have modernized politics. we exercise pow in a different or better way apparently not yet. >> clearly women in power face the same problems and temptations as their male counterparts. yet political psychologists say that public opinion expect more of women in high office and judge more harshly when they stumble. l. >> at least 33 people were arrested in in the moldives after clashes broke out in demonstrations. demanding the resignation of the president, the protesters were also calling for former president to be released released from police de detention. his supporters deny any charge.

10:42 am
president ashraf ghani comes to check out the rescue efforts. during this only one vehicle clearing the road meter by meter. the road has been blocked by snow and that means that dozens of villages have been cut off and right now they're not getting any help. at this rate clearing the rest of the road over 50 kilometers could take up to ten days. here mohammed is desperate for news. he and hishis wife and children are in a village they cannot reach. >> i've not had contact with them for more than a week. i keep coming in case some comes over the pass. >> the government said that it's doing it's best. 1,000 security forces have been dispatched to the area. people are getting anger at how long it's take to go clear the
10:43 am
snow. >> 18 members of my family are under snow. they are getting no help. cars and helicopters are only here for sightseeing. >> panjshir is dotted by tiny villages covered in snow and avalanches. >> the machinery we have is greater for paving the road. the bulldozer does not have chains on the wheels. if we get strong machinery we can clear the roads quickly and focus on the villages. >> down in the valley people are used to living living with snow. but high up in the mountains thousands of their countrymen wait urgently to be rescued. nicole johnston, al jazeera, panjshir valley. >> 1,000 houses have been destroyed in a fire east of the capitol of manila on saturday.

10:46 am
the the burmese army shot at them. >> the red cross has come under attack twice while helping the civilians. >> fighting in the kokang ring is not the only one that myanmar faces. it's trying to end hostilities with several different armed ethnic groups. but the renewed violence with the kokang fighters makes it more difficult for the government as it attempts to negotiate a nationwide cease-fire deal before elections later this year. >> still ahead sports news on the news hour. reaction on the cricket world cup. india looks to maintain their dominance. back in a moment.

recently it took place in seoul this year at the world cup stadium. there were 40,000 live spectators and nearly 30 million viewers around the world which puts it in the same bracket as some of the game sevens from the nba finals in terms of viewership. we've arrived but a lot of people don't know about it because its broadcast over the internet and doesn't get a lot of mainstream coverage. >> the growing global popularity of e sports can be measured in cold hard cash. the streaming service twitch brought by amazon for nearly $1 billion last year. it broadcasts events like this. the online gaming industry as a whole is worth $23 billion u.s. dollars every year. a fifth of that comes from here in south korea. but the growth of the industry here has been slowing in recent years. some insider blame restrictions brought in by the south korean government to combat a serious problem of online gaming

10:53 am
