1:52 am
that they have held on to for years but have attacked that base that say talk a lot about it at fust it's just american aspects and reinforcement sent to the forces who were in the base would been defeated earlier that made the difference for them of course the u.s. operation in somalia has been increasing over the years the number of troops there it's a very hard to tell the scale of it because there's a lot of secrecy involved we know that the u.s. forces have a huge base eighty kilometers southwest of the couple to look at issue from where they launch drones sand. fighter jets that target al shabaab positions in various parts of southern somalia but despite all these increase in attacks by not only the u.s. forces that afflict. in union peacekeeping mission amid some somali national army

the group haas shown resilience and that it can carry out brazen attacks not only inside somalia but also outside as shown last tuesday here in nairobi kenya police say. most of the gunmen who carried out the top were kenyans something that is raising concern that the country could be facing some homegrown terrorism threat this sprawling informal settlement of mud gengel in near it down central kenya lives here may seem us ordinary as in any other slum but the residents of mud jungle ordered. one of the gunmen in last tuesday's al-shabaab a talk in the capital nairobi was born and grew up here. salim ali get most couples had in this photograph during the night will be a tuck and he grew up in this house his neighbors those shocked i'm not surprised they say al-shabaab has over the years recruited many young men including salim

1:55 am
nairobi somali majority suburb obviously residents up come out to show their anger about the tague. unified in grief their message was one of love in the face of such . businesses in the business leave markets remain closed for several hours to honor the dead a remarkable moment of defiance by a community long blamed for a toxin can you no longer do people feel that is just a problem for one particular community and that community should be vilified. repressed. and driven out of. the rest of kenya now that is settling in we're happy to have that but we're also ready to help share our experiences security officials say there's no quick fix to the threat of domestic terrorism the only conceivable solution they say might lie in
1:56 am
a combination of education gun control and internet regulation somehow excellent report of yours gives us an idea of where the support comes from whether the personnel are if you like even in kenya what about the money how to keep going . what is a very good question come on it's one many people usually wonder with because this is a group that at one time held some huge swathes of south and central somalia including paul where people were shipping in goods i'm talking about ports like the port of kiss my you on the port of but out where they only used to tax the goods but also use to themselves by bringing in shipments will now but they have lost the access to the seaports what they're doing right now is toxic to the people in
1:57 am
the rural areas techie livestock from people calling it all toxic and some sort of tucks which the trying to justify by calling it which is charity as given in islam so what they're doing is also taxing vehicles plying routes in areas they control and then also extorting money from big companies that have got branches in places where they're in operation so they're gosh ok interesting stuff thank you for all of that joe in nairobi to other news and protesters in greece of converge on athens to demonstrate against the name change deal with macedonia what started peacefully in the capital was ended by riot police greek m.p.'s need to ratify this deal for its northern neighbor to change its name to north macedonia but many greeks oppose that because macedonia is the name of one of greece's largest regions as well prime minister narrowly survived two votes of confidence he is planning to
1:58 am
bring his contentious deal to a parliamentary vote in the next week more from john psaropoulos in athens. the protests last about four hours before being finally broken up by very large amounts of tear gas fired by police who were barricaded inside the parliament compound a small cohort of the protesters who had turned violent attempted to scale the steps leading up to the parliament building probably with a view to getting into the building they were met by volleys of tear gas canisters but that also affected the vast majority of the demonstrators on the square who were peaceful many of them elderly and many of them who had come with their small children those people were also driven back the point that the peaceful protest was trying to make here today to the government was we do not agree with parliament making its own decision on ratifying the name change deal with former yugoslav
1:59 am
macedonia we want this put to the people in a poll released today suggests that two thirds of greeks would be in favor of that and i think that that is also the proportion of greeks who would vote against the ratification of the deal but the government has said that it will it has now tabled this agreement in parliament and will pass it by the end of the week by its very slender majority of one vote that majority arose from a vote of confidence last week which the government survives with one hundred fifty one m.p.'s in parliament supporting it that is a three hundred seat chamber so they've got fifty percent plus one vote it is enough to ratify the deal but many greeks feel that it is a political sleight of hand. meanwhile riot police in sudan a fired tear gas to break up the latest in a month of protests there against the president a student sit in has been held at the university in the capital khartoum the city of has also seen demonstrations calling for the end of ramadan but she's thirty
2:00 am
year rule human human rights groups say at least fifty protesters have been killed since the protests began over the rising price of bread though the government says the number is much lower smom involve reporting now from. more protests broke out today in khartoum and also in the city of man protesters have been planning to converge on the parliament and once again demand the government to step down and the president omar bashir but soon they were dispersed by security personnel using heavy tear gas or other passive man in the forty third street where i was there heavy to gas how has been used and a cameraman working for has been as a freelancer has been apprehended and that's a part of a systematic cracking down on journalists particularly if they used t.v. cameras t.v. cameras are not allowed in these protests since the beginning and today or so president omar bashir once again reiterate.
