to recognize that our separate systems is based on our ability to a national sovereignty security and developmental interests if we become a threat to a national security or a base for subversive activities the separate systems cannot be maintained so and harnessing national security protection is the best way to preserve our separate systems and i was separate way of life while it's early afternoon now in hong kong as we go live to adrian brown who's in the central business district adrian it was quieter earlier but that hasn't been the case in the last hour or so tell us about what's been happening. you know funny just after lunchtime there were skirmishes running skirmishes between police and protesters right here in the heart of the central business district it's where the upmarket boutiques 5 star hotels and fancy office blocks are the police used pepper spray as well as pepper balls to disperse
the crowds after about an hour they managed to do that now there have been a large number of arrests i have to say i've just watched a long queue of police a scorching protesters down a flight of stairs and of course for those people who've been arrested if they're young it means that university prospects career prospects now in jeopardy because according to the police people taking part in an assembly today were taking part in what they deemed to be an illegal assembly and potentially potentially they face up to 5 years in jail if they are convicted now this skirmish here in the center of hong kong happened as the local legislature was about to begin a debate on a new national anthem law for hong kong this would in future if it's passed that it will be passed because the legislature has the arithmetic it would make it an offense to destroy a spect you know who during the national anthem the march of the volunteers of
course hong kong has the same national anthem as the mainland mainland politicians have been incensed by recent events where the national anthem has been booed at sporting events but today's protests of course also comes ahead of another significant development on thursday when china's rebel scrubber stamp parliament the national people's congress is expected to pass draft a draft resolution which will allow a new security law to be imposed on hong kong and that security law could potentially restrict the sorts of protests that we've seen happening here in hong kong on wednesday afternoon. and what more precisely a are we learning about that security now. because they have been very few details but i understand that they have been some leaks what more are we learning about the security. well we won't know the full details about this proposed security law and tell the draft resolution the draft
legislation rather has been voted on at the national people's congress but some details have been leaked to media here in hong kong in court including the state broadcaster r.t. h.k. and what they're saying is that the the law has now been widened the scope has been widened to include not just individuals but also groups organizations that potentially means potentially that the law could in the future target human rights groups here in hong kong so for instance like amnesty international and the law is also going to not just focus on individuals it's also going to focus on acts that it be carried out by people so we will know more details you know by this time tomorrow we would hope but at the moment it's all just really speculation the president donald trump in the last few hours also waded into the debate over hong kong he has said that if this security act is passed that hong kong future as
a financial center is over he said that he has an important surprise in store and it's expected that by the end of the week we may hear that the president is going to announce potentially the end of the special trading privileges that hong kong has enjoyed with the united states now people here in hong kong say if that happens it's not the united states or china that's going to be hurt it's hong kong thank you very much for that adrian brown with the latest there from hong kong. in other news the world health organization is warning of a surge in corona virus infections in brazil and chile as the region becomes a global epicenter of the pandemic brazil is that america's worst affected country with nearly 400000 confirmed cases and now a study is warning its death toll could climb 5 fold by august's reports.
away from the sandy beaches of rio we rational and that are are trying to locate covert patients in the of 1110 favela. we have just recovered from 1000 members selves and are now working on their day off to help those in need. hospitals are full most cases were not serious so this way we could help them to going to people where to go with visiting people and also to see their problems in their homes small houses with not a lot of air flow we could give an overall guidance on care and cleaning. as the amount of cases of call with 1000 continues to rise in brazil these doctors believe that early detection is crucial to saving lives. that's why they have turned this somebody's school into a temporary office story coming to these people have been historically abandoned by society and politicians they have no access to public health care a cannot afford medicines that is why we are here. people like that the end of the
sources say they have been abandoned by the government. well you it makes you scared very scared there are a lot of people who believe the virus is a lie from the politicians but it's not a lie we know what we're talking about my neighbor had it and recovered i have other friends infected a friend died it's very sad. the demographic density in the last increases the chances of catching covert 19. in the past few days human rights activists have to announce a change in the body removal protocols what once was a public service now depends on the relatives of the deceased would you reach such after 27 hours a body was removed from this house it is absurd what the state is doing with people who do not even have a chance to bury their dead. it's all happening as brazil is caught in a political crisis that has polarized the country between those who believe the way
out is by imposing a lockdown and those precedents who want to open up the economy the fight has forced governors to clash with will turn out. on tuesday the police raided the residence of rio's governor wilson beat cell who is being investigated for corruption in the handling of covert 1000 vets has said on twitter also not all is using the federal police to attack him caught in the middle of the dispute are the victims of brazil's political system which is failing to protect those who are in need of help the most. i report is warning venezuela is so poorly equipped to deal with the virus that it could make things worse for the rest of the region millions of venezuelans have fled the country in recent years as it deals with an economic crisis that's left many struggling for basic supplies human rights watch and johns hopkins university say
venezuela's lack of capacity to deal with all the 19 could cause more problems at the borders. he has more. a ticking time bomb that's how a report published on tuesday by human rights watch in john hopkins university describes the converging crisis of venezuela's collapsing health care system and the rampant coronavirus been them ik doctors around the world the earth last year had already announced the deteriorating conditions in hospitals across the country many are without access to running water and shortages of even basic medicine are commonplace sort of the immediacy and cost of the venezuelan government has so far confirmed just over a 1000 cases of coronavirus and 10 deaths numbers the researchers say are impossible to believe. the venezuelan government doctor is absurd in a country where doctors don't even have water to wash their hands the health care system is totally collapsed people are overcrowded and poor neighborhoods and
prisons and authorities harass and chase journalists doctors and nurses who are trying to inform people doctors interviewed for the report describe their working conditions and the plight of patients as the plausible missions are asked to bring the water for a mission which means that for the most vulnerable and or that becomes a huge obstacle for admission to the hospital they have to bring 25 liters of water which is really quite expensive so why don't they are asked to bring us not only for their own consumption but even to flush the toilets in some cases this iteration is so dire that patients are being told to the f.a.q. and you're only outside the hospital in a car which creates a whole august of. one of the doctors desperate to be able to wash its hands before a procedure actually used the water that was dripping from air conditioners. years
of economic and political turmoil have led millions of venezuelans to seek refuge elsewhere more than 5000000 have fled in the past 6 years thousands are now going back as the pandemic ravages the economies of receiving countries the to a future there may be even worse listen to them. well another country struggling to cope with. tanzania opposition politicians accuse the government of covering up a crisis and the world health organization says there's been a lack of transparency in tanzania his handling of the outbreak. the beaches in dar es salaam and getting busy again. tanzania didn't have strict lockdown measures like some of its neighbors and now it's lifting them. president john mica throughly encourage people to gather and pray in churches and mosques to fight the coronavirus crowds came out for the eve alpharetta celebration on sunday

the 1st session of the 11th parliament let's bring in zain because robbie who's in tehran for zain president hassan rouhani spoke ahead of the opening of this session tell us about his message and how this new parliament is likely to get on with the current leadership. well folly this is president hassan rouhani who last year in office as president of the islamic republic of iran during his speech congratulating the new parliamentarians inaugurating this 11th parliament of the islam a public he said that he hopes that it will be a time of friendship not confrontation he said that the mudgal if the parliament in iran is a symbol of islamic democracy and should be a leader in the region as an example for many other countries he also said that there can be cooperation and convergence between the branches of government to achieve progress in furthering national interests people have to work together let me read you some of what he said in his speech firstly he blamed the united states
for many of the country's economic problems the president and romney has been criticized for not handling the economy well and he said that quote according to the supreme leader the president is the commander of this economic war and the other 2 branches of government the parliament and the judiciary 'd must help the president's office he also said that the independence of each branch of government in the country does not necessarily mean that they have to be confrontational that they can cooperate and he said that my administration extends a hand of brotherhood towards the new parliament now his tone was very positive but you look if you look at the context of the relationship between the presidency and the parliament in the previous years if you look at the political context of what has happened to president hassan rouhani especially since the collapse of the 2015 nuclear deal then you can understand that perhaps the content of his message the words he used could be seen as defensive this is a president who the previous parliament made 10 attempts to impeach ministers in
his cabinet and they succeeded in impeaching 3 of his ministerial cabinets this is the previous parliament that did this that was relatively more reformist leaning than the current parliament and if there are 2 more impeachments if you lose 2 more minister. then this presidency will have to go back to the parliament to achieve a vote of confidence to continue and finish out this last year in power now experts suggest that that is not going to happen that the government all branches all leaders want to see president rouhani complete this and have a smooth transition into the next presidency but we have seen the readout from the supreme leader a message from him to this new parliament also said that it is the parliament's job to investigate the other branches of government thank you zain for that. there in tehran. decision is expected in the coming hours on whether genocide suspects will be handed over to u.n.
custody if so form a businessman. will go on trial of an international court is accused of helping finance the mass killings in 1994 and was arrested in paris after 26 years on the run. no wonder businessmen. in the capital kigali in 19931 year before the genocide he's accused of helping to finance could google is alleged to have funded the ethnic militias they killed at least 800000 ethnic tutsis and moderate hutus in a 100 days could be go was it not for more than a quarter of a century is addressed in paris earlier this month has been welcomed by genocide survivors like it sends the mana. to measure rest but of course one must respect the presumption of innocence he was one of the men figures of the old rhonda and he was wanted on several charges so it's a huge relief that he's been caught who was indicted by un courts and genocide
charges in 1997 so decades he evaded investigators in africa and europe before he was finally caught in france french investigators surveyed children online and discovered the one of them rented an apartment in this building in the paris suburb of ano source and when police raided the home they found a good now 84 years old it is believed that he was living here for at least 4 years with a false identity. colonel erik m. a whole led the investigation. during the lockdown our investigators were working from home so they had more time to focus on this case to truck phones and locations and we began to survey one location in we believe he was in the apartment but weren't certain until we open the door we carried out a d.n.a. test to confirm it was him the perry school to decide whether to hand could be good to you in custody he could face extradition to tanzania to face trial in an
international court also likely he would be transferred to the hague and then transferred to i was shot to face trial but it is still possible that our divided ety of the restaurant would be a challenge and that the court would accept that argument it's unclear how one of the world's most wanted men was able to evade justice for so long it could be the das face trial it may provide some answers it might do so shed light on the extent to which the who wanted genocide was planned and officer vive as a sense that after so many years justice is finally being served and such about al-jazeera paris. the f.b.i. is investigating the death of a black man in police custody in the u.s. city of minneapolis demonstrators are demanding justice for the man just to warn you john hendren report contains images some people may find distressing.
