hello i'm tired of this is the news hour live from london coming up. hundreds injured near pakistan's capital as police crackdown on protesters blocking a major highway the military is called in to restore calm. egyptian warplanes target suspected fighters after friday's mosque attack that killed hundreds of people in sinai. the doctors in syria forced to work underground and treat their patients in secret. and in sports japan's or iran's had been crowned the new champions of aid. the japanese side beat saudi arabia's al hell out to one on aggregate to lift their second trial.
12:02 am
pakistan has called in its military and ordered a partial media blackout as police struggle to disperse hundreds of protesters near the capital islamabad offices of fun tear gas and water cannon to clear the protest camp injuring more than one hundred fifty people but demonstrators have been blocking a major highway for two weeks and a refusing to leave until the norman is to step down and the minister was accused of committing a reference to the prophet mohammed in a parliamentary bill the wording has since been fixed but protesters still want him gone come out has more from near the eastern city of lahore. civilian government has off the military to come in aid of the civilian administration their primary objective would be to save dogs key installations the diplomatic ball they were in islamabad and that at a time when there is trouble spreading across the country we had added trouble in karachi protests have continued many people injured there and us and we are toward
12:03 am
only one person was killed near the airport now all the airports all the highways and looting the grand trunk road that connects the north to the south as well as the motorway that connect this lombard to the provincial capital of the punjab all people are stuck on the highways take an art move because all the able to take trains have been taken over by the protector and then we have also been told that the protesters are now back in strength at the same place where the security forces primarily the police where they tried to get large them earlier this morning so indeed a crisis situation head and the military now being called in for the protection of islamabad but this is a situation that has been mishandled by the government that disqualified prime minister of the country had called all of his party workers and members including senior ministers for a meeting and it all was probably it was brewing in the city of karachi in
12:04 am
islamabad so it appears that the government had miscalculated they did not know their strength of the reaction that would happen and on forward on the streets across pakistan indeed a crisis situation one that age threatening to spiral out of control that is also talk that the form a interior minister's house was attacked the law minister who's resignation that people have demanded and also being attacked and of god that the government and all sorts of trouble. join me to discuss the situation in pakistan is asia who is an independent security analyst and author thanks very much indeed for coming in so why do you think these protests are spreading in this way given that the wording that was offensive in the first place appears to have been changed back why do you think it is spread in this way so the one reason that one can think of it is that they are being motivated they're being pushed from forces from other stakeholders in the state who want to throw away the government before definitely
12:05 am
before the march elections there the elections the upper house of the parliament in march next year so that's one the other thing is that's not forget that since the death of the police officer who are killed the governor of punjab in two thousand the shop who was sentenced to death would ask god he was sentenced to death in two thousand and sixteen and hung in february two thousand and sixteen by the government because the it shot an innocent guy without proving that this he had done anything blasphemous was a coup or a court order yet after that there is a movement which has been build up but the question is who's been feeding these represent you know the really. you know the lowest social cannot make god and in terms of i mean obviously this is a high profile actions that are taking because it kind of blocks highways than it gets a lot of attention and it causes a lot of. trouble but in terms of the amount of support have popular support
12:06 am
actually have that much. so the issue of. you know order of the prophet is something which is very popular in pakistan the question is how it is used because in the law in the changes that were made to the law there was nothing which was done or said against the honor of the prophet so there was nothing blasphemous the content was in blossom list but the other thing is that when the whole fighting began this morning the issue is that the government forces the police force they did seem to control the situation but suddenly the people appeared from somewhere you know was like somebody who people were parachuted were better prepared who had a gas mask who had you know tear gas equipment who had guns and who knew exactly where the c.c.t.v. cameras were and they got the virus so that their movement was a recorded and what about this this. brain of the military how do you think that will play out and is it something that is going to resolve introducing this could it make it actually worse i think politically it's going to give more power to the
12:07 am
. to the armed forces and armed forces wanted to believe that the armed forces want to manipulate the we're not happy with the government i think this is a wish come true for the military but apart from that this is a situation in which you don't know who was controlling whom what hands are playing the guards so the only option remains to call in the military i think where the government went wrong they should have from the beginning asked the military to come in control the situation and go away i mean i suppose what people remember is when people of intervened in the past it's ended up being very bloody the red mosque events and how how likely where are we to see something where you end up with a kind of you know really dangerous situation and lots of people killed. i don't think that that is going to happen it's much more orchestrated much more control than that on the last one plus to not forget that you know here are people
12:08 am
you know are brayley from the brady sect you know they're violent they can be violent they can be aggressive around honor of the prophet yet they're not trained militants the same way as the lard mustard people were but what reminded you know what the reminder that comes to the idea that comes to one's mind is nine hundred seventy seven when a same woman protecting the honor of the prophet was was lodged and an elected parliament an elected government was thrown out so these are the pictures which come to mind rather than. say you are just briefly what about a military coup century more than a military coup anything which is undemocratic an elected a change which is brought about through an elected means thank you very much indeed thank you thoughts of washington says it strongly condemns the release of his side and the suspect behind the two thousand and eight mumbai attacks and says the
12:09 am
decision will affect u.s. pakistan relations the founder of the group would our has a ten million dollar u.s. bounty on his head the attack which killed one hundred sixty six people including americans officials say he's being released because the government has failed to provide any evidence against him saeed has repeatedly denied involvement in the mumbai attacks tom ackerman has more from washington d.c. . well this is in line with president trump's pronounced leaning against the pakistani government accusing them of failing or in fact allowing pakistani soil to be host for the haqqani network and taliban just as he launches what he describes as a. pronounced a new strategy for winning winning in afghanistan a winning strategy that the president hasn't quite spelled out but certainly regards pakistan is not a cooperative partner in that venture the pakistani interior minister just
12:10 am
a couple of days ago said that he was pledging that that the government was committed to not allowing its soil to be used for violence against any other country and that is something that the american administration simply does not believe and as a result the. in keeping with that position the troubled ministration has been making their references and their overtures to india asking the indians to be more engaged in the afghan fight even more irritating for the pakistanis prosecutors in egypt say a gunman who stormed a mosque in sinai were carrying an eyesore flag officially there is still no claim of responsibility but egypt's military has already started bombing targets part of a pledge by president of the c.c. but those behind the attack would not go unpunished although three hundred people
12:11 am
are now known to have died in the attack and. the worst in egypt's modern history and a hoax reports. egyptian military has released this footage which it says shows its warplanes hitting targets in the sinai it's part of its crackdown on suspected fighters after friday's devastating attack these targets the military says a believed to be housing or storing ammunition linked to those who attacked the mosque has president abdel fattah el-sisi has promised to use brutal force and an iron fist against those responsible for what he called a heinous act of terrorism he also declared three days of national mourning this is the worst attack in egypt's recent history apart from the devastating loss of life people here a feeling angry too. before anything fault our leadership because our leaders haven't taken decisive decisions with respond why because this

12:13 am
a bullet and had my leg no one has claimed responsibility for the attack but immediate suspicion has fallen on a local i saw linked armed group. analysts say the heavy hand the military response could potentially lead to more unrest you saw the beginning of fomenting of a cycle of violence of state repression targeting these groups through arbitrary arrests leading to them for mounting a cycle of violence. meanwhile the president has launched a thorough investigation of the families of the victims gather to bury that kind of hoax that our days are. coming up in the al-jazeera news hour fear and distrust how some range of refugees are reacting to a deal that could see them returned to me in march. facing the force of law is about new government moves in on robert mugabe's old allies. and his support photo you've got us pics lewis hamilton interpol position in abu dhabi on that story coming up with a. front right. un's

the main opposition party. he has been part of the twenty seven years of disappointment thirty seven years of an i.q. that you see is from the same boat as mr mugabe they are cut from the same tree so it doesn't matter that present what appears to be a fresh deal it remains a pipe dream the people want to see quick or selves the change their lives. may have had with foreign investors and foreign diplomats but political reform and economic reform needs to happen quickly to have the effect he wants. al jazeera iraq. or zimbabwe's new president is promising a range of reforms to try to revive the want striving economy one of innocent and god was first made to appeal to the four thousand white farmers whose lands were violently seized under formally to robert mugabe in the year two thousand the move

12:24 am
that symbolically it's going to be a safe investment environment for businesses one must remember that support effective farm as many have moved to other parts of the world they develop new lives they have new livelihoods and for individuals and zimbabwe who took over those farms they have put in some cases up to seventeen years of investment in that land so it seems to make in the minds of many people a little sense to try to wind back the clock and put things back how they were so i think what he's trying to do is take the next step which is to say that's legally resolved this issue saturday is the international date for the elimination of violence against women have been held in rome and paris by france's president emmanuel macor and asked a series of measures to tackle sexual violence and he bought a report from the french capital. a big speech from the president on a topic that's a huge problem in france and beyond the money were mcauliffe said tackling gender

based violence and discrimination would be his top priority over the next five years as he promised to get tough with. our situation up to now shows that something is not working in our country the shame that women experience a shame without reason since they are already victims the shame that should be experienced by the perpetrators of violence it is a civic and political shame it is a national disgrace earlier his minister for gender equality outlined how wide ranging the problem was is. violence against women takes many forms and we talk most about sexual violence but there has been more openness to talk about other types like physical violence so-called administrative violence where women's passport documents are withheld economic violence where many women find themselves staying in an abusive situation because of financial dependence. mcmullen said he'd introduce legislation next year including on the spot fines for harassment in public and he promised nationwide training for teachers health

workers and police to help recognize abuse but this woman's rights activist who was in the audience is skeptical when the provisional is the model of police there's currently a lack of training particular for the police when it comes to harassment and sexism in public places so we're asking well you find the money for all that you're selling us the idea of a great national cause but with the smallest budget of all the government departments. in recent months seven hundred thousand people have signed petitions urging the government to do more on the saturday thousands more hit the streets many viewed the president's new initiative as just part of the solution i think anything to the others and says it is all nonsense equal rights in our society is what we ask for we demand equal rights for everyone but macron contactor line. here is that icing. will not act. if she's not obliged to artists what president mark raul has announced is in effect

12:33 am
the doctor who began the project he was also killed in an airstrike last year and his colleagues continue to face challenges. the biggest problem is the airstrikes which target civilians this hospital is theoretically safe but we expect anything from the government and it's destructive weapons making the hospital safe is just one of the many challenges most hospitals in opposition areas suffer from a lack of medicine and other vital supplies that are to emergency exits in case of any attack being underground brings the constant challenge of maintaining the flow of fresh air so doctors and patients don't suffocate. we face difficulties such as ventilation and shortages of medical supplies after securing ourselves in a cave inside a mountain because serious health care system has been largely destroyed by six years of war preventive care units and health centers are nonexistent potentially fatal diseases are common because of a lack of vaccine. health care is being used as

kidnappings violent killings it's difficult for us to talk about this there are repercussions of violence hasn't reduced although the numbers are down critics say policing remains sporadic and people still live in fear that. it's costly to keep troops permanently the areas are very large and many are still controlled by criminals. and the target. killings continue in recent days the bodies of three political activists were found but government supporters say improvement needs to be measured over the long term see most of them will see more of the murder rate is still six times larger than the world average the situation is still critical but the policies must be sustainable to show the population but this is the way to repress crime. for now a signal is being sent to the gangs that change is happening in the us and the children have a right to plea in peace but the innocent just are just some. of us the

murder rate may have dropped in recent years but hundred euro's remains one of the deadliest countries in the world the security ministry says in the first ten months of this year more than three thousand people died violently in honduras is also a major corruption problem the government has been accused of bribery embezzlement and doing business with drug cartels and the watchdog transparency international says military and police staff are selling weapons and ammunition on the black market order for pastore is a spokesperson for the opposition alliance he joins us from the hundred capital. how likely is it that these elections in your view will be free and fair. there's actually no no way that elections this process can be free fair or transparent that is something that we have made very clear from the opposition not only last few days but for months and years ago. the the process that
12:40 am
a liar was ousted in a true in two thousand and nine which was set in train the events that are still in play at the moment and he wanted to change the constitution which was part of the reason that people said that he had to go but now the current president wants to stand again and that's against a constitution is that how does that work. well it's a very different different case originally what president's allies there was advocating for was to consult the people to open up a democratic process through which the people could decide if they were in agreement with or not in order to change the constitution going to a popular process of changing modifying the constitution writing a new constitution a new social agreement and this time around it's just the contrary it's a president who has been able to consolidate power during the last eight years it
12:41 am
is in part the resort of the coup and the fact that the coup was able to stand and stay in power and what has he has been very successful at first as president of congress and now for the last four years as president of the republic he has been able to eradicate independence between different powers of the state he controls the supreme court of justice he controls the public ministry he controls the congress and he has been able to do that control to open the way for him to be able to stand to reach for reelection this time around so so what's your kind of what's the opposition's take on this i mean are you why participate in a process which you seem to think is so flawed. we are still able to believe in a democratic way to reestablish constitutional and democratic order in our country we are betting on this process as the last chance to do so democratic channels
12:42 am
institutional channels for this to happen are definitely deteriorated after eight years of rule by one orlando and yet we still believe on this route to be able to rebuild a nation in a democratic way and yet what we are betting on immediately on the short term is that the vast majority of the hunger and population rejects one orlando's intention to be reelected and will vote for the alliance as the alternative to stop this re-election process to stop the attack on the mark receive one hundred and if you were to get into power what would you say the biggest challenge is for hundreds and. hundreds we're going to face huge challenges and we're going to face a challenge that will take so long to recuperate from that it might be generations
12:43 am
from now that we will see the solution of many of the problems we face very deep structural problems we face the problem of inequality of poverty the majority of our population lives on their property and extreme poverty nowadays and the main project of the alliance of opposition is still to call for a popular poll that will. for presenting a project to write a new constitution because we know that in order to fix the structural problems we need to address the root of the problem and we need to start fixing what is a democratic system that has been undemocratic for the last thirty years and that should be reported in many ways and that the only way to do so is by running a new constitution on which all of those sectors of the population can participate they can feel represented and they have a say in it not only
