10:48 pm
cycle brings a series of breaking stories is maximum jail term has jumped from 5 years to 175 years during the listening post as we tend the cameras on the media donald trump should be the one deciding who is a journalist and who isn't to focus on how they would call it on the stories that matter the most they look closer and closer to the tire shut down both international and domestic news coverage on al-jazeera. police begin clearing the streets of a border town after thousands of protesters turn that anger to a new target traders from mainland china. you're watching al-jazeera with me so robin live from doha also coming up. 26
10:49 pm
people including 9 foreigners are killed by al-shabaab attackers that a hotel in southern somalia. south african soldiers are deployed in cape town to help police with a surge in murders shootings and gang violence. and louisiana is hit by a deluge as a tropical storm barry bears down on the u.s. state. bottom to the program what began as protests over an extradition law in hong kong has now turned into much wider anger over the influence of china fighting broke out on saturday in hong kong involving protesters against visitors from mainland china riot police used pepper spray and battens to stop demonstrators setting up barricades inching chouinard far from the border they say shoppers and traders from china are invading hong kong and drive up prices by buying products to take home
10:50 pm
and sell while hong kong police have taken to social media condemning the protesters for attacking officers involved the police noticed there's a big group of violent protesters gathering near the metro station and shanks way the situation there now is very chaotic and dangerous the police realized the protesters a very organized they distributed supplies in a large scale and collected a large number of metal bars at the scene as well as other materials that can be used as weapons we condemn protesters attacking offices with metal rods and and no one pounder we're warning all protesters to leave immediately and to stop their violent behavior. let's cross over to general allen dogan our correspondent in hong kong who's monitoring events well there was a standoff there was clashes but now there is a a nervous silence i believe in hong kong this evening. well definitely i mean as there's have been a big quick turnaround of from from
10:51 pm
a peaceful march to chaos and then now there's this kind of nervous silence as you said there are still hundreds of police officers right here at the town monitoring in case some of the protesters come back there seems to be no sign that there will be a continuation of protests so what we're seeing basically here is you know. a group of police officers riot officers who were pushed back a few hours ago because they were clearly outnumbered by protesters we've seen both sides hitting each other we've seen police outnumber in the middle and surrounded by police by process or as we've seen bottles umbrellas thrown out and riot police had to come in and rescue police officers who were who were trapped basically but that quickly changed after protesters set up their barricades they left and they said they will come back tomorrow there's another protest tomorrow scenes like these have become common here in hong kong and protesters tell us this is really
10:52 pm
all about this bottled up this content at this point that nothing seems to be what the hong kong government is offering will be enough to appease them they say at the very core of this really are political reforms that they are asking for and in terms of those political reforms driveller it seems that some elements of the hong kong public and student communities seem in boulder and certainly by the fact that the extradition laws not been scrapped and they can really challenge the authorities on the stand some other issues which are either vaguely or directly connected with china. yeah exactly i mean this march was supposed to be about parallel traders a march against parallel traders coming from mainland china as they call them hoardings items from hong kong and selling them back to me inland china the protest of about 30000. civilians were really all about that asking for better regulation
10:53 pm
and protection for the local traders here that quickly changed over the last few days we've also seen different kinds of protests different forms of protest we've seen a romantic form of it where like john lennon walls of public walls were sprung up all across in almost every single district of hong kong where messages were left by civilians those who cannot join protests physically left messages of hope and support for those who take to the streets and messages of anger against kerry lambs government last night we were also at hong kong university where university students challenge their vice chancellor to face them after he issued statements that were basically condemning the violence at the legislative council complex so we're seeing these different forms of protest resistance clearly emboldened basically by what has happened over the last few days they said what they are trying to do here is important is to protect the currently way of life in hong kong
10:54 pm
the sea there is slowly being eroded by what they call this creeping authoritarianism coming from beijing for the moment we'll leave it there. thank you . well anger has been boiling for months as jamila said since the government tried to push through a law that would allow extradition to mainland china on june the 9th an estimated 1000000 people poured into the streets to express their discontent by june the 12th when debate was supposed to resume in the legislative council there were street battles between protesters and police and the use of battens tear gas and rubber bullets brought a new outcry 4 days later the people of hong kong took to the streets once again in record numbers organizers saying 2000000 people marched then on july the 1st as officials mark the anniversary of hong kong's handover to china protesters ransacked the legislative council on tuesday hong kong chief executive carol lam announced publicly that the extradition bill is dead but the protests have now widened into anger over the way the city is run willy lam is
10:55 pm
a professor at the chinese university of hong kong he explained why this is likely to drag on for some time yet. with that and they're having a huge impasse because what's happened is that beijing has basically lost confidence in the ability of the separate k.-rob so. laid back and in the tradition and she is just waiting for instructions from beijing which doesn't seem to be coming so at this stage we see a confrontation between both sides the current administration seems to be. saying nothing doing nothing just waiting for the protesters to make a mistake by means are hoping that some of the article the young cast just might meet. and be branded as righteous and the prettiest of the
10:56 pm
law but the fact that there's been no genuine dialogue between the lamb initiation and the protest this means that. this state of confrontation might be exacerbated and there might be more connotation and even bloodshed on the streets. fighters in somalia say they've attacked a hotel killing at least $26.00 people and injuring dozens more it happened in the port city of kasmir in the autonomous region of jubilant among the dead are people who kenya tanzania and the u.s. as well as britain and canada welcomed where personal from nairobi in neighboring kenya. officials who survived the attack say began with the suicide bomber in a car there was a bomb in the vehicle and the vehicle was rammed into the hotel causing a large explosion gunmen then followed on foot attacking the premises and a gun battle ensued between them and the security forces who were posted at the hotel the gun battle went on for hours but eventually those security forces were
10:57 pm
able to take this situation on the control this kind of violence is common in some parts of somalia but in recent years it's been rare in the town of kiss my but it's widely believed to be connected to an upcoming election which is meant to take place there in august the time of the attack it was a political gathering going on inside the hotel elders and clan representatives and legislators were meeting in preparation for that election and the armed group al shabaab of taking responsibility for the attack what's not clear is if it was an attempt to disrupt the electoral process generally or specific candidates or politicians were being targeted protesters and marking 40 days since the killing of more than $100.00 of the earth fellow demonstrators and the dependence investigation that's being demanded into the killings by security forces a political transition agreement is due to be solid on saturday the agreement is between a pro democracy coalition and the military includes
10:58 pm
a joint sovereign kills all to govern until elections in 3 years time have a borgen has more. protesters in sudan are running up across the country in various states they're saying that they want accountability for the murders for the killings of protesters in front of the army headquarters on june 3rd 40 days ago now there is thing that they pro-democracy 10 was attacked by army security forces and the military and they are saying that what the army was trying to do was and their demand for civilian government but that is not happening they're saying that they're working to need to demand the civilian government now the the forces that the coalition that represent the protesters known as the. or says that for freedom and change ours have signed or have agreed to sign a deal with the transitional military council that would begin that would be the start of a transitional period but protesters on the street are saying that they want accountability before the start of any implementation before any deal is signed in
10:59 pm
their thing that the military was the one responsible for dispersing and attacking dissident and therefore they cannot be responsible for investigating as well because they will not basically incriminate themselves in the killings of the protesters so that we can soldiers are being deployed in one of the country's top tourist destinations after a surge in murders and going violence the boaster cape town struggling police falls the 3 months in poor neighborhoods identified as criminal hotspots police figures show the city has south africa's highest murder rate almost 1900 people have been killed in cape town and its province western cape in just the past 6 months turf wars between rival gangs are being blamed for fueling the bloodshed what provincial leaders says it's become so bad that people are effectively living in war zones cape town residents ordered johnson told us earlier they feel like they're stuck in the endless cycle of violence. we as the community we try our best to help but unfortunately we are limited. and our children this well they only know violence
11:00 pm
see they don't even see a bit of self because every day they see violence so they pick up on this and then when they grow up they start acting but they want. to because this is the examples that they see so this is the only thing this is not a solution to the the problem in a whole because. as a child the army were also deployed in manenberg of what i can remember in the past and so i just hope they can make some difference but i don't think so because they . need to be a. that. the weather will have the latest on having rights also. in the us people in yemen pray in protest as they demand depend to saudi.
