1:07 pm
by the police they've been behind the mass protests that have stretched into a tenth day that cooling on the prime minister to resign that these are pitches of nicole passion there you can see him being bundled into a police van he was taken away just a short time ago and he has become the main spokesman for these demonstrators passion yun was held just after televised talks abruptly break down between him and the prime minister said. c.n.n. was elected by parliament to prime minister after serving a maximum of ten years of president well all of that has led to protests throughout the country with opponents cooling the move a power grab the unrest they say shows no signs of easing despite hundreds of arrests. now we can speak to maria tities seann who is editor in chief of the report which is an all my news service she joins us via skype from the capital yet of iran so it seems very much as though the police are now clamping down by
1:08 pm
detaining if not arresting many of the movement's senior leaders and that's great that's correct the situation continues to remain very tense very fluid. almost all of the leaders of the movement have been detained by police right now i am watching the live thousands of people have assembled in different parts of the city republic square which has become the focal point of the movement has been cordoned off by police people are being randomly detained a dragged away so it's a very very tense and fluid situation right now in the capital city and so this is clearly involving thousands of people i mean how representative would you say all these demonstrations of armenia's three point one million people. if we have a cross-section of different layers of society from young people to university students from state universities private universities we have ordinary workers we
1:09 pm
have all kinds we have the i.t. sector which is one of the most promising sectors in the country in large numbers protesting doing walkouts us so it's not a wide swath of society because people are really tired of promises that are being kept and the fact that they're stuck you see and power grab has basically given him a third term in office and this is something that he had explicitly ruled out in the past before the twenty fifteen referendum which changed the system of government in amenia. that's correct in two thousand and fourteen just ahead of the constitutional referendum he made explicit promises that he had no intention to seek the office of prime minister and now and when his term ended on april ninth. when the ruling republican party placed his name as their nominee this raised a lot of people's anger and rage i would say and we are seeing this now in the
1:10 pm
streets of the capital and throughout the country and given the media has. become more of a parliamentary system while the protest is satisfied to use the parliamentary process to get rid of the new prime minister with whom they disagree so much right my teen you know the problem with you know her soviet countries i'm sure you know as well as many other people the legislature the executive did judiciary is basically you know places of governance that are not accessible to the people and that is why people resort to the streets to do the ruling republican party has an absolute majority in parliament so for the next foreseeable four years if things don't change dramatically in the country they will be able to maintain their grip on power and because every successive election in armenia has been marred by voter gripes coercion use of administrative leave first people understand that their vote
1:11 pm
in the past hasn't mattered so today they are taking actions into their own hands and they're saying enough is enough all right for now maria. thank you very much indeed for bringing us right up to date with the that rather tense situation that you see live on your screen now in the capital of armenia get. in q. the israeli army has blamed the palestinian political group hamas for leading riots and attempting to destroy infrastructure at the garza border they've been for weeks of palestinian protests there so far and during the latest on friday israeli snipers killed four people one of them a fourteen year old boy in a statement the israeli army said during the riots burning tires were used to create smoke screens in order to mask attempts to damage the protective infrastructure rocks were hurled kites with burning items attached to them were flown with the intention of igniting fires in israeli territory but this myth is

our correspondent he's been to meet the family of mohammed are you the youngest victim of the protests. that's right or are you had dreams for her some most mothers a good education marriage children. but a bullet to the head from an israeli sniper means this family now has to bury fourteen year old mohammad are you along with those dreams. while there are no hard allen says and. i used to tell him one day are living conditions will improve political divisions will and i had been pushing him to continue his studies despite everything. mohammed was protesting near the gaza israel border fence at east on friday if he was throwing stones they probably weren't very big. this family video from last year shows mohammad at the zoo he slight aged just thirteen here it's hard to imagine six months later he posed a serious threat to the israeli military. death prompted an unusually strong
1:13 pm
reaction from the u.n. special coordinator for the middle east peace process nicholai martin off said it's outrageous to shoot children how does the killing of a child in gaza today help peace it doesn't it feels anger and breeds more killing . a former israeli military spokesman responded please go to gaza engage hamas and get them to stop sending people to the fence stop palestinian incitement and organize riots at the border and donald trump's advisor to the middle east stepped in a full investigation by israel of mohammad are you is underway as we mourn the tragic loss of a young life we must all resolve to avoid causing more suffering by responses to his death. mohammed's father says he couldn't stop his son joining the protest for palestinian rights what does and. he was always smiling always teasing to me his father who was not a kid but the brave the whole neighborhood loved him never said no to anyone he
1:14 pm

1:15 pm
two suspects that killed the palestinian we believe to have a connection with a foreign intelligence organization the malaysian police we work together with interpol and shion pole to track the two suspects. more now from our correspondent . this is to an identified gunman opened fire at. the thirty five year old palestinian engineering lecturer was ambushed as he was walking to was in nearby boss in the capital kuala lumpur colleagues of the university are shocked and he's been by the killing so we don't see any thing dangerous where he met or to the only thing that we can see of his. and the only thing that could be is because of his expertise in his field of electrical engineering. a neighbor told reporters that he saw two european looking man nearby shortly before the shooting their family blame israel for the killing.
1:16 pm
of. the israeli mossad is to be held responsible for that because the israelis can't tolerate any well educated arab and particularly palestinian mentality israel considers any well educated distinguished arab or particularly palestinian figure as the real big threat for israel how mass which controls gaza said was a member of the palestinian group has repeatedly blamed israel's spy agency mossad for targeting its members including into his yes it is an expert in joan technology was shot in his hometown. in december to police said the killers of one . posed as foreign journalists hamas said he was instrumental in developing drones and was a command of its armed wing. brigades. we

1:18 pm
trying to determine whether an attack took place here lopez heard a young report. the wait is over inspectors but the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons given access to the area of the alleged chemical attack in duma samples were collected but delayed access to the site is raising questions about the quality of the evidence and whether syria or russia cleared the scene the visit comes a week after o.p.c. w. inspectors first arrived in syria the u.s. and france have accused russia of blocking the investigation to buy time for mr lavrov who is who is a master of making these type of arguments i mean he would get up and stand in front of you for hours and tell you that well it could just as equally be you know martians landing from a flying saucer you don't know that and you know it's the kind of logic which says you know if they offer an alternative explanation which you can't prove is wrong
1:19 pm
then that tends to you know whittle away at the more dominant argument more than forty people reportedly died in a suspected chemical attack on april seventh the u.s. france and the u.k. retaliated by bombing several syrian government sites russia and syria have denied the use of chemical weapons they also deny hindering the investigation once the samples of the suspected chemical attack are analyze inspectors will submit of their report to the states parties to the chemical weapons convention depending on the findings inspectors could make a second visit to duma. the young al-jazeera. now to syria where rebel fighters from the district of kalamunda very close to damascus the capital have arrived in northern aleppo following one of the evacuation deals negotiated by the regime's ally russia many of the fighters belong to the armed group jaish al islam about half of the population of kalamunda are internally displaced and have

1:25 pm
a long time coming that quite a one has been a conflict one for the last ten years a very active one pigs on the scene displacement of people destruction of infrastructure and i think i'm not at all and a lot of many people like me don't think we're not really one surprise that when does come up i nearly it's a social moment and i think it's coming coming in response to the extreme pressure that has been put on people on the ground the most key factor that is i think which is really taking a lot of interest and you know people and shaking people are is how critical of the military this movement has been military has been the key institution which has been dispensing counterterrorism operation and bringing peace and stability in the in the border area which was seen in august analysts and other well kind of terrorist attack right which pakistan right and i'm quite interested in the in this fatah region because it sounds very much as a these are people for the most passive live in this region who've been sandwiched still mostly train state and non-state armed groups. yes absolutely and also
1:26 pm
a big international war of mine is done on the other side on just around the border so it is a state non-state groups within which with the g.d.p. which was that they get on with and non-state group the military the state was fighting but only it's fighting on the border of a planet and which has also been the scene of an international war for the last seventeen years at least so this is a very very difficult position and you know what happens during such crisis time there's been a huge change within fire dark part of the changes being wrecked by the conflict itself but part of the gene has also been you know we learned a lot of people from part i would out to other parts of pakistan e cities and countries and there's a good question now the ask rugs got it all over the sun and which has also created its momentum as we've seen the kind of rally or is still there is there it would again that momentum they are although they're out of heart i would you i mean the idea this deal is going to get a lot of traction and a lot of conclusion and
1:27 pm
a lot of questions joining in and basically getting that reaction to come thank you very much indeed very good to get your perspective. now to the u.k. where it's been twenty five years since stephen lawrence an eighteen year old black man was murdered in a racially motivated attack in south london his death and the handling of the investigation sparked a public inquiry found that the city's police department was institutionally racist and the hayward report. stephen lawrence was murdered because he was black stopped by a group of white thugs in an unprovoked racist attack injustice was a shot at. our rule used to describe the lawrence case stephen spada told me that he had everything going for him stephen was a human being. didn't. book on people and he was have
1:28 pm
you know would have anybody. you know for somebody to actually kill. such a person to what reason would you have to kill somebody to stephen's murder changed britain's legal policing landscape for epa the failure to bring his killers to justice was a state of the country's legal system for years within days of stephen's murder the police were given the names of the five suspects but they failed to act and the subsequent botched investigation led the police to be accused of institutional racism. that was the judgment of an inquiry ordered by the government top to stephen's death when the five suspects appeared there was chaos the report found that stevens race had affected the way the case was handled. made seventy recommendations saying police attitudes towards racism had to improve
1:29 pm
and that the brace relations act needed to be strengthened to put an end to discrimination it also ordered targets for the recruitment retention a promotion of black and asian officers the most damning part of the report though was the claim that the police were institutionally racist i think it was fab back then and i think it's fair in the here and now because one of the things that people will look. on is has week quest has policing moved on and even though there has been some progress it's been slow the metropolitan police says it is not the organization it was at the time of stephen lawrence his killing it would take nearly nineteen years for toobin to be found guilty of stephen's murder these people killed. destroyed their lives stephen lawrence would be forty three level lawrence says he'd be given his son's
1:30 pm

1:31 pm
a story of what he had to say was that the protesters might have shadowy political figures the high end so that didn't really seem an address. attempting to reach out to the protesters to try and find some sort of dialogue and these are protests the aren't just happening in the capital minard work but also in several other cities in the country the spark that really lit them seem to have been about changes to the social security structure mechanisms in the country but also there's been tension in this country before then president will take is seen by n.g.o.s and also by analysts have been undermining democratic institutions in the country in the bid to hang on to power he's now in his third consecutive term he's also been accused of turning the government into a bit of a family business his wife is also the vice president of the country now what we have to see is what's going to come next all the protests going to escalate is
1:32 pm
