4:07 pm
his presidency trump returned to his so-called wall to tout it as a win and i think when you see what it does and how it's so important for a country nobody's going to be touching it border arrests plunged during trump's 1st 3 months in office but then caravans of migrant families began traveling north from central america claiming to plead gang violence by the summer of trump's 2nd year in the white house unauthorized border crossings reached a 13 year high of more than $130000.00 a month it was in the midst of that surge that came trump's family separation policy that are agents took more than 4000 children from their parents at the border a practice that drew widespread condemnation and a judge quickly ordered the policy to end saying children were suffering irreparable harm and must be returned to their families but even today some 500 kids remain separated in its haste to do trumps will the u.s.

4:17 pm
have been other incidents that look very similar. well actually peter will have in this morning here in kabul falls into a pattern that has become all too familiar across afghanistan and especially here in kabul government employees civil servants activists and journalists getting either gunned down or having their cars blown up all the way to work it's been happening for months now and it seems like it's getting worse every day this 2 female judges were gunned down all the way to work this morning some more people were injured and according to human rights watch afghanistan right now has a 200 female judges what happened this morning means that within seconds within minutes one percent of the sounds all feel mild judges where wiped out now most of these targeted assassinations remain unclaimed i still has claimed some of
4:18 pm
them but the government keeps insisting that the taliban are behind them the taliban keeps denying responsibility so there is this pattern of a blame game about who is responsible the minister of interior has been doing some arrests but there is this issue of impunity because this is where their work starts and stops and that is what happens to the judges still system will this people ever face justice and that's something that has not been happening and this culture of impunity is what people say here encourages even more this targeted assassinations that have been taking place peter do these killings impact the peace talks. actually yes they do and just a few minutes ago the u.s. sarge the ferries here in kabul tweeted something say and cold all on the taliban to understand that such actions for which it bears responsibility outraged the world and must stop if peace is to come to afghanistan so this is assassinations
4:19 pm
are taking place in the backdrop of us government to us negotiators and the talabani are talking about peace coming to afghanistan and what this targeted assassinations are doing is that they're widening the already existing mistrust between the 2 sides and from what people have been telling us also they endanger the peace talks because they are fearing that the support of on the afghan people about this peace talks were start to wind down because how can you actually believe in peace talks when there are so many people being killed and die here every day peter thank you very much will you come to florida for us live in kabul. there's been a 2nd nights of protests in tunisia in cities despite a government imposed locked up a video showing a police officer abusing a shepherd has drawn comparisons to the incident 10 years ago that led to the arab
4:20 pm
spring uprisings. a man is humiliated in the street by a police officer whose shepherd is being reprimanded and pushed apparently because his sheep got too close to the local government headquarters. and. the video has led to protests but also include the state of the economy joblessness and police violence became a decade after a street vendor set himself on fire in protest over the same issues an event that became a catalyst for the 2011 revolution in tunisia and the arab spring or earlier in the day prime minister his mission she had reshuffle the cabinet and he told the ministers to carry out reforms including new ministers of health interior justice and energy it had to fit a city with that we have had the aim of this reshuffle is to achieve greater efficiency in the work of the government's policy and plans what and feel. many view the timing as important thursday was the anniversary of the downfall of
4:21 pm
president seen a lot of denali who was forced out in a popular revolution that's what the region but with demonstrations banned because of the coronavirus there were no commemorations on the streets. bought at least 6 cities protesters defied those orders and confrontations with police officers protesters across the country once again being hurt in the capitol. hill al-jazeera . the russian opposition leader alexina vallone is used to return home late on sunday despite threats that he will be arrested the russian prison authorities has warned he'll be immediately detained once he comes back from germany he's being treated this since being poisoned and almost dying in all this not only says it was the work of the kremlin the kremlin denies that we have 2 reporters bringing us live reports on this developing story standing by in. moscow as alexandra go for we begin however in berlin with correspondent there dominic cain dominic do we know where he is right now his flight is due to depart in the next half hour or so so
4:22 pm
presumably he's actually physically at the airport yes that is the safe presumption there are some reports that suggest that german police will be giving him security right the way up to the door of the plane so high stakes as it were in this particular scenario and it's also worth pointing out that in so far as the wider elements of this case are concerned we know that the german justice ministry has this weekend said that it has provided the russian or thora tease with considerable details transcripts of interviews that they performed with mr van they once he had recovered sufficiently to be able to speak to them and also says the german justice ministry it has sent on to the russian or thora he's certain items of clothing and blood samples from mr nirvana and they say that this particular crime in their words needs to be solved in russia that it is in russia that this must be solved
4:23 pm
and that chimes with what the chancellor here angela merkel and many of her ministerial colleagues have been saying for such a long time since this incident began in august that those who carried out this poisoning must be brought to book must be brought to justice and the thing about angela merkel when she speaks about that she paid private visits to mr of army when he was convalescing in hospital and remember that he's now been in the war he has been in germany for almost 5 months almost 5 months since he was brought here in a coma and now he is going to complete his journey back to moscow in the course of the next few hours but the years setting up another locking of horns if you will don between himself and mr putin's kremlin. well he from his perspective mr vanier has been clear that he always had the intention he sent that to return to russia to return to moscow and that nothing would prevent him from
4:24 pm
doing that he was so determined was he to to return to his homeland he said when he announced this this decision in the course of the last few days it was unambiguous the wording that he used so from one perspective it's almost as if he is perhaps daring the all thora he's in russia now if we know that that from the russian perspective there has always been a complete denial of any complicity whatsoever regarding what happened to mr donovan a and then if we look at this from a european perspective we know that angle americal and foreign minister colleague of led to the charge as it were of ministers of leaders trying to prevail upon the russians to comply to prosecute where possible and obviously the ball is in their court now ok don many thanks let's go live to moscow and our reporter there alexandra gopher so alexandra this goes back to a suspended sentence the russian authorities say he breached the protocol
4:25 pm
surrounding that going back to 2014 so they're accusing him the accusation seems to be you breached the rules and regulations surrounding that suspended sentence because you went to germany because somebody in russia poisoned you. yes indeed this is exactly what the prison authorities of russia are are claiming now the thing is that in this period that was attached to the suspended sentence expired on the 30th of december but they managed to file with the court that he violated to this probation on the 29th of december a saying that he did not report to the prison authorities when he was called and that they did not know about his whereabouts they even went there so far to quote the article in the lancet journal saying that according to that article 'd he was quite well already in a september das he had to reply to their request now they are holding this against
4:26 pm
him in the prison authorities promise that they're going to do everything they can to detain him the moment he'll land in russia here his supporters wanted to greet him but it seems that he is going to be police well can mean him home what we know that the airport where he is to land this evening there is a lot of bullies there dearies a prisoner transportation vans all the way the position and there is apparently reports that the arrivals hall is fenced off so no one can meet anyone landing in this forward to today and whilst the political analysts here were busy analyzing this whole situation of riley supporters and opposition in general was commenting on it and praising him for his brave move kremlin's silent there was no word from the red square on the this occasion whatsoever ever
4:27 pm
since he announced that he's coming back home even if you used. the key word i guess you're alexander he could be detained but even a few years does he then represent more of an impactful figure because he's physically in russia a game around which the opposition can perhaps rally. yes indeed with this this arrival does announcement in itself that he's coming back is seen as an explicit challenge to the authorities is seen as a very brave more that the despite the fact that he's life has been in danger here and that to some say might happen again is not beyond possible that he might end up serving a longer prison term that he decides to go back is seen as a boost to the opposition's specially in the view of their to the end of the 2020
4:28 pm
a here in russia a lot of restrictive laws have been signed by putin that are going to make oppositional life almost impossible now these brave move on the other hand is seen by the political analysts here as something that is not really a choice even though really wants to have a political future in russia because what the past. is that you cannot participate actively in effectively in political life in russia and do something if you keep on living outside of its borders thank you so much alexander golf rather a correspondent reporting live from moscow. it's cycling season and we have another name one for you developing off the coast of queensland this still circle of thunderstorms here approaching kansas cold kimmie it's not particularly big the winds are particularly strong it brings in fairly high waves but i think what's going to happen is once you get over land you get

4:34 pm
lots of parenting experts said you know you can just relax your rules for a little higher this is an emergency then we can reevaluate when things are back to normal and now we're almost see your leaser and so many parents have been in touch with to say that they wished they hadn't actually relaxed their rules and that now they're saying when they consider facts and you mention that it study tracks that there are in number of things that you can do you know certain times of day where there is no tech allowed or you can even pick one day a week where there is no check allowed and if you're talking about true addiction then you need to look at something like full on digital detox for 2 to 4 weeks with no tensions now it's important to remember that most people aren't. they are just engaged in significant. so if it's just for use it can really look at a battle we sing and where your children are
4:35 pm
a technology and then adjust accordingly ok for those people who are properly addicted is it fair to say they're addicted to the hit of don't put me in that people get the general body generates it when you look at that website when you look at your instagram or your facebook and you get that like you get that little wave icon coming up and that's the thing that causes the addiction but for anyone worried about the symptoms either in somebody else or in themselves indeed how do they recognize whether they are addicted or not. well in a true addiction it's for not only do you enjoy doing the activity but it's interfering with typical everyday likes so your social interaction your leisure activity and even info tracing into your work so you know the kinds of symptoms you might see in your children is a recent the l.s.e. when you were trying to limit their time now you might say that all the teenagers there are suppose when their parents are limiting their time that this is just that

4:37 pm
you know 40 years ago at the beginning of silicon valley when that started getting really powerful it was about people building hardware and software that was the product nowadays because it's all platform based and at the based we are the product the users are the product because the platforms want to expose us to advertising that's why they drag you in and they want to keep you there so there's got to be some responsibility here with the soccer burks the facebook's the instagram and the tick tocks. and you know i think that's the next greatest debase you know it's our attention is the commodity and we as individuals we as parents we really really need to think very carefully about how we protect this most precious precious commodity in a glass we allow to infiltrate into our homes we need to be incredibly intentional with our digital use and i think you are very correct that the companies have
4:38 pm
a huge responsibility as social and moral responsibility to begin to address this this is i believe the next big wave for this huge problem area that we are facing as a society say because it's so much of it has been just the spin city this insidious nature of the ways has infiltrated homes accidentally particularly within the last 12 months because you know we we all know that we need to monitor our children's use but people were relaxed those rules and then the companies receiving this huge increase and they were also in the flying excessive use so words treats and special rewards for extensive use so what they're doing actually is rewarding maladaptive behavior you know so it's not just about the do you mean hit that you mentioned earlier that is definitely part of this but it's this and we're using
4:39 pm
devices to naam our experiences and to know our emotions and you know the technology can be absolutely wonderful but it's the indiscriminate and the pervy safely of how it's invading our lives in dating or leisure activities that's for the issues like a brave parents who switches off the wife i but maybe then the teenagers will actually have a meal with you face to face catherine really good to talk to you thank you so much for coming on we do appreciate. it ok the incoming by the administration is planning to use executive. orders to under several of president trumps policies these include repealing travel bans and boosting the u.s. refugee intake and the gal who has that story from miami. fulfilling a campaign promise to enact extreme vetting president trump signed an executive order temporarily banning travel from 7 muslim majority countries in january 2017 the president's reasoning to make america safe and this is the projection for the
