7:50 pm
send a clear message to the presidency sending troops or using emergency ordinance is not the way out we will continue our fight no matter how they are rest and cross into us. independence activists and the chance he was also taken into custody as he prepared to board a flight for japan police deny the arrests of time to scare people away from taking part in protests over the weekend timing of the arrest does not dictate our investigation. we arrest the person as soon as we have get a sufficient evidence to prove his or her or fans the allegation that we tie our arrest is totally false a lot of this is after chinese troops were filmed driving through hong kong on wednesday night in what was described as a routine rotation of soldiers but an editorial in the china daily newspaper says troops stationed in the city have no reason to sit on their hands if the situation
7:51 pm
worsens right we'll go live to hong kong now and our correspondent wayne hay and wayne these arrests these charges and then the releases on bail is that enough do you think to take the steam out of the protest movement which is of course what people suspect they're meant to do. i think it's highly unlikely martine we are now 7 o'clock friday evening heading towards what could be another volatile weekend on the streets of hong kong of course the weekend is when we usually see the largest rally use the largest protests taking place and quite often in the evenings the most violence and i think that most people are expecting this weekend and indeed into monday into tuesday when a general strike has been called will be no different at all joshua warm and agnes chalo in that media conference that they gave after they were granted by old by the
7:52 pm
judge just a short time ago saying the opposite of the policemen this saying that in fact they believe that this was a deliberate ploy by the government and the police to skin people away from protesting at the weekend but while in official march that was planned for saturday has been canceled by the organizers because it wasn't given permission by the police to be held it is expected that we will stay still see quite large numbers on the streets over the weekend because of course way never many different organizations out there who are together taking part in this pro-democracy movement that has gripped hong kong for 3 months now and just agnes channel and indeed andy chan there were only a small part of it. yes and i think one of the comments that we've seen it coming around hong kong today is surprise for a start that these people were arrested before the weekend but also the people who
7:53 pm
were arrested joshua wall and agnes chauhan the other is a certainly very high profile faces of the pro-democracy movement in hong kong certainly joshua wall is probably one of the most high profile but they're not really seen as being the organized this or the leaders behind this current protest movement as we keep reporting it's very much a leaderless protest movement that we've seen on the streets of hong kong pseudo almost 3 months now that these protests have been going on certainly if we go back to 2014 joshua wall was a key leader of the occupy protest movement that lasted 79 days on the streets but since then while the kid has continued to be a high profile face of the pro-democracy movement again he's not really seen as a leader of this movement so i think a lot of people are saying well what was the point all this police action over the past 24 hours or so and arresting these 7 or so people because they're not the
7:54 pm
leaders of this movement again and it's not going to scare us away from protesting in the days ahead all right wayne thanks for that wayne a live in hong kong. huge crowds in pakistan have boxed the prime minister's cool for a nationwide show solidarity for the people of indian administered kashmir cities across the country have observed what imran khan code kashmir the prime minister val's pakistan will stand with kashmir is in testing times indian administered kashmir has been in lockdown since new delhi revoked its special thomas status only 3 weeks ago. has more from the pakistan capital islamabad. prime minister imran khan. nation to come out and show their solidarity with the people of indian administered carsley ad exactly 12 o'clock in the afternoon all the signals turned red and focused on all the traffic to our

7:58 pm
to provoke parliament explaining that in detail if he fails to do that he could be asked to come in person to give evidence in the scottish courts next week what's being argued here isn't the power that the government has on the convention to be able to suspend parliament paroch parliament what's being challenged is the information that was given to the queen who of course under the english or british constitution and acts this parag ation that the information given to her was misleading similar legal challenge is also being mounted next thursday will see one that has been brought by gina miller the political campaigner. that has the backing of the former british conservative prime minister john major and also in northern ireland a campaigner there is arguing that no deal breaks it would be very very dangerous
