11:00 am
appeasing the public i cannot trust them and the longer process once people go back home and everybody pursuing that we're back to normal we have to keep the pressure on them until we see a diverse council that is representing the people's choices political parties technocrat we need to keep pressure and i really do hope that people will not go back home and resume life as normal until these are these goals or because you know how you describe this is a very deep state this is been the system for for so long. might require some some patience for the type of change that even the protesters want. true but it's very hard to ask for patience where there is already blood spilled until today sixteen people have been killed between today and yesterday by the same forces that they're trying to negotiate with this peace and tell us that for a peaceful transition it's very hard to have have the trust trust is earned we
11:01 am
cannot just give it unless we see something tangible that we see thus far to me is just changing names thus far i do not see this as a genuine change we only saw a change in name we don't know what happened to the constitution we don't know what they're going to do we don't know what the process is for them to be really inclusive so until that is proven i think it's fair to be skeptic and fair to be a little bit worried about the process and prospect of this. thank you so much for joining us from washington we appreciate it. thanks to. south sudan's former rebel leader written shahr says he doesn't believe a national unity government can be formed before i'm a deadline short told the reuters news agency that he has spoken with president salva care about the extension which is needed to iron out details of a lasting agreement he says defense forces need to be unified at the capital must be demilitarized and political prisoners best be released before
11:02 am
a government can be formed. right police nigeria's capital have arrested more than one hundred people during protests calling for president abducted urban sallah to quit. tear gas was used to disperse the crowds the protesters are demanding more change when allies of former president jealousy's beautifully cut to hold top government positions more than eighty police officers were injured in friday's confrontations with protesters police blame what they call infiltrators for the violence rob matheson has more. traditional. this woman cries out to crowds of young protester. seventy three my children you know something like flowers in the spring you are the future i'm with you. in response the crowd choose to live
11:03 am
in the demonstrations again on all jiri the streets despite increasing efforts by security forces to reduce the size of the crowds there was a role the brawl king's there was. that impeded people from joining the couple. years there was also the use of what to against. a few days ago there was also the use of sound. so i think this is also the military is sending signals that the message is we heard you indeed. we gave you a few concessions about do not ask for too much it's been ten days since abdelaziz bouteflika stepped down after two decades as president following weeks of public demands for him to go but the protesters say everyone linked to both of leaders government needs to be removed that includes ben salah
11:04 am
a long time boot of legal ally and the man appointed under the constitution to act as interim leader and who's in a presidential election is for july the fourth protesters are also calling on some of the military's top leaders to resign including general are going to whom protesters accuse are not doing enough to rid the country of what they call look for the power a group which they say has been secretly running algeria in the shadow of former president bush a flicker of you know just algeria has its men algeria doesn't need you there are plenty of people that can rule geria we want them all to leave. all the garden they all need to go we want to tell. they need to know that the people have empowered us to get rid of the gangs you are nuts. it's not needed speaking it's forty million algerians women men old people young people on the streets all of these people are asking you in the name of everything that's holy to leave the country alone to
11:05 am
leave its people being algeria is a great nation it's greater than any of. the interim government maybe hoping that electing a new president will be enough to satisfy the protesters but the economy is struggling unemployment is high and demonstrators like these say they'll stay on the streets until all those they blame it all derrius problems are forced to go rob matheson al-jazeera. has been taking part in the protests in the algerian capital he says the hardening stance of the military will not try protestors off the streets. the gains are still raw jive but i do not think that we people wonder well you know at bandon the fight it is very similar to the sudanese scenario to sit in the situation because unlike bashir the jury or where the jury in leaders who you know did everything to him probably play sions but
11:06 am
culturally and economically so go both you know can trees but protesters in algeria and sudan are fighting for the same thing for dignity for freedom for for a new vision of their respective countries so i do really do not think that these arrests or this police violence would discourage people being able if it had the opposite effect because people are still in the streets protest and the they were not discouraged and they did not abandon their pacific claims but very strong one or ones in the same times in the same time so we next friday and i think really think that this week as well during the week days will be it will be the says if this is a for us because we need to fight and we need to stay in the streets and we need to
11:07 am
to remind them of the importance of our demands and the nun and negotiated aspect negotiate a bill aspect. of these. tony morehead in the news hour and quoting the credibility game opening a possible war crimes case in afghanistan is rejected then what does this mean for the international criminal borders and sport when i think premier league's top scorers may miss the rest of the season. for thrills leader says a breakdown in talks with the u.s. could revive past tensions kim jong un call for the u.s. to show quote the right attitude kim said he would give the u.s. until the end of the year to make its decision adding that he's keen to hold a third meeting on a visit to washington this week the south korean president moon j.m. pressed the u.s. to partially lift sanctions to encourage further talks on ending the north's
11:08 am
nuclear regime robert kelly is professor of clinical science and diplomacy at princeton university he joins us via skype from tucson thank you very much so kim jong un and donald trump are both known for a lot of posturing it's not always clear what what they are and tense really intentions really are what do you make of this demand for the right attitude from the u.s. president. actually the north koreans have been saying this for a long time their own standard expression here is that the u.s. pursues a hostile policy towards north korea and only when the united states stops treating north korea as an enemy state to be eliminated would it be possible for them to denuclearize and have normalization stuff like that so we've heard this kind of language from north korea for a while it's new to have a deadline right sort of idea that if this is a had by the end of the year you know who knows what is i mean does that mean they're start launching missiles again or are testing nuclear weapons that's kind of new the idea of an ultimatum. doesn't respond to that kind of thing particularly well so i imagine the american administration will simply blow that off but you
11:09 am
know they have been meeting now for what you know to a year and a half now eighteen months and not a whole lot is come of it i mean at some point we're going to keep doing these summits it's something that's exist so why even have a third one if you really got nowhere in the first two what what what's the point. yeah i tend to agree with that i've said that myself you know i'm not really quite sure what the point of another apex level summit is as long as the strategic and ideological gaps are so wide my own sense is that it would better be better to do small deals first and then sort of close the gap a little bit and then maybe have a leader level someone who needs to who needs to it was in a position to be making the demands who is who is the one that needs to bend first and to that end how much control does jonell trump really have over easing any of the sanctions yeah that's also a great question too in the debate on north korea we called the sequencing right so who's supposed to stop first and this is undercut negotiations with north korea for a while again if the idea is to have this huge step for the north koreans give up everything they're just not going to do that first exchange for big promises that's
11:10 am
why you go for smaller steps first where one side deals of the other cheats it's not such a big loss where you get around the sequencing problem by having each deal be smaller and then grow into it but as long as you insist on sort of these massive all or nothing deals i mean you're a huge trust problems that you just mentioned then you get to still meet which is where we are now all right robert kelly thank you so much showing us from tucson we appreciate it thank you for having me yes media is reporting the days before libyan warlord khalifa haftar launched an offensive to seize the capital saudi arabia promised to help pay for that operation according to the wall street journal riyadh offer tens of millions of dollars on the ground at least five civilians have been killed during fighting on the outskirts of libya's capital rockets and shells fired by taras forces had a residential area west of tripoli both sides say they have made strategic gains in the past twenty four hours more than fifty people have been killed in fighting over the past week and thousands more have been displaced but modeller head has the latest from tripoli. these protesters have come from all over the capital tripoli

11:13 am
afghan security forces the taliban and u.s. forces are dickerson human rights lawyer and director of the international justice program at human rights watch he says the i.c.c. suspicion is and comprehensible. i don't believe it the a failure of everything from my reading of the judge's decision they essentially turn justice on its head and say yes crimes were committed which in the i.c.c. s m beat it were no domestic trials addressing these alleged crimes and but nonetheless they are dismissing the prosecutor's request to me it's in concrete and civil by way of the judicial decision we've seen again and again that justice for poor crime is of
11:14 am
mass slaughter in the use of rape as. a weapon of war bringing some justice to victims who endured those acts is essential to a meaningful and durable peace and that's what the i.c.c. prosecutor tempting to provide that judges in mrs since have turned her request to do so now but perhaps the ramifications extend beyond afghanistan and to the point where if you perpetrate the most terrific crimes but don't mess to situation is such that investigations may not be feasible then there will be no effort by the international criminal court whether it's in afghanistan

11:26 am
sinister star wars character darth vader and u.s. economic sanctions against venezuela have in common. everything according to u.s. national security advisor john bolton he likens the sanctions to darth vader choking his enemy's throat that he says is what we're going to do to the regime economically that. the economic crisis already existed long before the sanctions but the u.s. strategy is designed to provoke the total collapse of what it sees as the enemy. the u.s. treasury department has designated not just venezuela's vital oil industry but its entire banking sector as a target of u.s. sanctions and that makes the news way a lot almost untouchable for companies and banks the do business with the united states this is one of venezuela's main ports for bringing in everything from food to fertilizer to manufactured goods but as you can see there is very little
11:27 am
activity here according to the government this is because u.s. financial sanctions are scaring off shipping companies and those who do venture to dock here are charging a premium. the sanctions are of course taking a toll on venezuela's already crumbling economy and on ordinary citizens the theory being that they will provoke a painful but a relatively quick ouster of president nicolas maduro. recent history however disproves this theory. who are going to look at the sanctions against cuba that they remove the castro no they only hurt the lives of the cubans there. remove assad in syria that they take out saddam in iraq or in zimbabwe know that you get rid of all of them because you applied sanctions no. in fact in the last three months the government has been busy finding ways to circumvent the sanctions and
