4:05 pm
a difference in the crowd coming here the faces of. 6 months ago we were getting a very young crowd. seemed to be coming out of the national company the reason the protest leaders have been hit hard with all sorts of legal challenges by the. things. disturbing the serious charge. which can carry. is. that the different. they've been fighting with each other they don't have the message i think also the general public. very much behind these produce and the grievances are still on the. move they did in quite
4:06 pm
the same way to come out and show their support there have been more protests than me and maher despite weeks of increased use of violence by the military in mandalay one group gathered dawn on motorbikes calling for a return to democracy on saturday of these 5 were killed in the latest crackdown 10 ethnic rebel groups have announced their support for the protest movement and that's raised concerns the violence could spiral into a civil war any yangon demonstrators carried painted eggs with anti military slogans as a symbol of defiance defiance an opposition to the coup one group marched through a district chanting and singing protest songs many of the eggs also had a drawing of the 3 fingered salute which has become a symbol off resistance. jordan's former crown prince says he's been placed under house arrest in amman the military denies that but says a former minister a member of the royal family and others have been detained as part of an investigation but in
4:07 pm
a video prince hands accused jordan's leaders of corruption incompetence and harassment laura burden melly reports. in a video past the media by his lawyer prince hamza says this may be the last time he can contact anyone he says he's been ordered by the army's chief to stay at home and that his phone and internet are being cut off. he criticized jordan's leaders for corruption and tonight being part of any conspiracy. agenda there is no outside agenda there is nothing on my part to affect the country or outside plotting from behind the scenes we listen to these accusations over and over again this is only in order to make a smokescreen over the retreat and retraction that we witness in the country every day in our beloved country. which. the video was released came shortly after 220 in state t.v.
4:08 pm
an ounce multiple arrests of former senior officials on fast say night jordan's army chief denied the prince how it was among them but it didn't mention the arrest of the former head of the royal court bus and our dollar. was a long time also that of the cheating and it was at one time a minister of finance and he has been arrested along with several others that were very close to the heart of court it is not clear exactly what the role that. played and there but clearly there has been any division inside the court that has led the security forces to consider this a danger to the stability of jordan's government. prince hamza is the hoff brother of king abdullah when the father king hussein passed away in 1909 king abdullah was crowned and prince hamza became the crown prince of jordan however
4:09 pm
king abdullah stripped him of this title 5 years later following saturday's arrests regional leaders including the g.c.c. were quick to express solidarity with king abdullah security personnel have been deployed in the capital amman and other parts of the country there are still more questions than answers about the highly unusual arrests and what flaunting it says it a stable country in the middle east or about in money al-jazeera. or prince hands as mother queen noor has defended her son saying truth and justice must prevail but the head of the senate says the accusation is a malicious plot to undermine the king and i'm more into china the one about we reiterate our confidence and pride in our royal monarch the king all behind ok standing firmly against any malicious treacherous hand a king is a red line so i was ok one of the old khattab is the director general of community
4:10 pm
media network he says it's unlikely these events will lead to a major political shake up in jordan. there's a lot of. lack of information in the state run media has really done nothing except repeat the official statements which were very very truncated and we don't know really what's behind this certainly there's no cool or plot or anything like that i would i would think that there's some kind of an internal criticism to the king by his step brother which caused all of this former crown prince prince hams it has been making the rounds specially in tribal areas and that's a kind of a red herring for the government for the king it's these are the strongest supporters of the monarchy and they're the ones who are more courageous in standing up to the 2 government corruption so i think that's what really upset people in the palace and i really think that they overstepped the by arresting and putting him
4:11 pm
under 10 arrests because that video that was released actually has made the prince much more popular and made prince hands a b. and darling of those opponents who think that their government can be run much better i don't think that this is there as serious a case there is no security people have been arrested you can't have a coup unless there are security people involved so i don't think and you know this whole idea of a plot there are 2 is just not true there is clearly. an internal issue that has come out in the public and i think in a way it has turned out not in the favor of some of the people who began this process of arrests. coming up on the al-jazeera news hour. we'll tell you how turkey's plans to develop a canal on the bosphorus strait is causing controversy. i'm mad at the
4:12 pm

4:22 pm
investigations were conducted of a long period of time yesterday very significant moves them were initiated which demanded immediate action and all the measures taken were in accordance with the law including the principles of an equity relief justice and mercy however when it comes to our stability and then interests of the people. no leniency could be observed as i said this issue is a matter of grave repercussions on the national security once all the outcomes are established they would be announced on timely basis and just occasions are still underway close and vista gates and surveillance were
4:23 pm
going on and when they intercepted certain communication speaking about it as 0 hour then. it was clear that they moved from desires and planning into action and as a result it was necessary for the security and intelligence operatives to move in order to throttle at birth this malicious plot. i once again reiterate that all is under control the plot is totally contained our security and stability unshaken and we will continue to address the issue in total transparency as i said. and yes. i would like to ask you if the
4:24 pm
jordanian authorities were tipped off or received any assistance from outside parties. the gold's converged the goals of the plotters aiming at undermining our stability and security on the one hand converged with. confused dreams and false ambitions some of the perpetrators as i said these movements were it intercepted contained and. put to an end my question is. did you receive any intelligence assistance from other countries. once again this is related relating to our security and intelligence apparatus is. which can not be disclosed they are acting in total professionalism
4:25 pm
and firmness. what is provided by our brotherly and friendly state has been reflected in the statement made by them except pressing their total support to the kingdom and his majesty the king. so. you spoke about. and diverse. keeping the issue within the circles of the family do we expect prince hamza to stand trial the 2nd question is what is the link between but somehow the law and sharif hasn't been stated to you had you know as i said it was the clear directives but his majesty the king after he had received the intelligence report
4:26 pm
and the. significant move recent moves it was his opinion based on the public interest and the national interest it was necessary to deal with the issue or to address the issue within the family circles however the kingdom stability and security transcends above any consideration and this particular issue will be dealt with whatever necessary to maintain our stability and security of the 2nd part of the question there is constant communication between the 2 individuals and they also are in close contact and communication with prince hamza however i can not delve and details as investigations are still underway all i can say that there were certain desires and plots and are aiming at undermining our stability
4:27 pm
and security these movements were dealt with with absolute firmness justice considering the principles of equity justice and mercy so it's mostly look toward. them. the designs on plots aiming at undermining the kingdom stability and security. do you. believe it was reported that one of the read was implicated that it was involved in. attempts to our quiet and said plots of land in jerusalem of. as i stated earlier. the ambitions unfolds dreams of those perpetrators came together and caused them to act this demanded our security apparatus is to
4:28 pm
respond swiftly simply because all these plots. are. aiming at undermining the kingdom simply because the kingdom is taking clear stand to word certain regional issues including the palestinian cause those people have been harping on the people's hardships and also people grievances this is all i can say at the moment and one more question. we have been recently hearing about what is called opposition abroad which is a totally foreign and alien to our culture what is the kingdom trying
4:29 pm
to do in order to address this issue especially that we are not accustomed to such a trend. with you on the other hand as a foreign minister how do you evaluate that. the. country's view of the kingdom i made on the current crisis and most of the so-called opposition abroad as a kingdom is a state of rule of law a statement of an institution's capable and able to address any violation of law or any breach to the state institution with respect to the 2nd part of your question. all the world states have expressed clearly the stand towards the current developments the world leaders respect our king
4:30 pm
and they also are aware then a strong mentor role played by the kingdom within the regional and. it is clear that the whole world and the world leaders in taking the side with the kingdom and the king they are also supporting any action taken by the king or the state authorities last question. what are the charges leveled against them was it. again a state or. conspiracy with foreign sides. as to the legal characterization of the charges they will be announced by the legal authorities however the state a part of this is have been addressing the movement activities. by certain individuals aiming at so wing seeds of division among the people
4:31 pm
undermining the stability and security of the country and as i said they are being addressed. in line with the law and the legal characterization of the charges will be announced the guys only concern authorities and one last question you know. it is reported that the generals and the army have been arrested today and service order tired that. nothing has been deported many of any at rest are among the military ranks our military in a situation that our military establishment is solid and united as i said all the arrests made yesterday were beyond and they simply managed to throttle at birth this plot and now we are addressing the legal once
4:32 pm
again i reiterate that the national interest our security the kingdom security and stability transcend above all and above everything the kingdom is a state observing the role of law in the state institutions at dressing all the issues in line with the law that is in absolute firmness observing the principle of justice and mercy thank you. you were just listening to a press conference of i am going to suffer the he is the jordanian deputy prime minister and he was speaking after the developments in jordan in wave off arrests that took place in the country in the house arrest of the former crown prince prince hamza the prime minister deputy prime minister that as you said that prince hamza and others plan to destabilize jordan any also said that prince hamza had links with quote foreign parties to execute some sort of plots in the country
4:33 pm
also added that there were 14 to 16 people arrested in addition to 2 senior officials whose arrest had already been announced in the snow into that press conference with us was with me too joining us here in doha so there was no talk of a coup so to speak but more talk of destabilizing actions by the deputy prime minister well that was talk about a plot that has been foiled in its early hours as the foreign minister put it i mean he said clearly and he said that over and over again as you say they're worried that that would be a was an attempt to destabilize the country and that was actually the main concern for king abdullah he also said that actually do those individuals that had been arrested so not only the former royal a former finance minister and a member of the and then the. hasn't been who is actually a member of the royal family they were not of 14 people apparently those people had
4:34 pm
been followed they were under surveillance it's not clear for how long whether it's weeks or whether it's months and it's only when they started talking about the 0 hour that then the king took that decision choo choo have that way but to rest yesterday however it's still not clear what they will be charged of i mean one of the reporters in that. press conference the foreign minister what are the charges and he said well it's still too early to talk about that the justice system will is still. under rather the investigation is still ongoing and everything will be revealed in a transparent way so you do get some answers in the sense that the you can see there the foreign minister say make no mistake there was some attempt to have some sort of plot it's not clear what that plot was it was certainly prince hamza
4:35 pm
was having conversations or his circle around him was having conversations with members of the opposition abroad interesting one of the reporters there asked him said is the 1st time we as jordanians hear this opposition abroad who is that a brazilian abroad who is that opposition abroad and he didn't have an answer for that he said it was too early to talk about that so you do get that feeling that the government is putting out the message that they took that action because they had credible information credible intelligence that something was cooking they nipped it in the bud but we still have many questions yet and one of the questions in fact he was asked by a reporter in that press conference about who these foreign forces were he kept repeating that there were foreign forces involved in this part but not answering the question as i said may and you're saying too many questions remain unanswered
4:36 pm
who are these foreign. forces at the back or is it are they individuals are they a government of oppositions living abroad is all very very good at this stage i think you do really get the feeling that the government was there trying to say that that was the right thing to do and they made it very clear also that when it comes to prince hamza they're still trying to find what the foreign minister called an. amicable solution that this sort of family dynamics play at the moment is not clear what's going to happen with him as well so still i think jordanians will be watching all this unfolding over the 24 past 24 hours the events have been going on very quickly one news breaking after the other but i think many of them will still be sitting there wondering what exactly exactly was cooking especially this not even clear whether there was anyone in the security forces that were helping these
4:37 pm
people that were part of this alleged plot still many many questions remain unanswered really ok with that thank you so much let's move on to some other world news now and $22.00 indian security personnel have died during a raid on a maoist rebel hideout in eastern chad to score a state so one maoist fighter was killed police say they acted on intelligence the group was hiding in a forest what ensued was a 4 hour gun battle with one officer saying rebels use grenades the maoists have fought the government for more than 4 decades demanding land and jobs for farmers so let's take a closer look at the group behind the attacks the maoist rebels have been fighting the indian government for more than 40 years tens of thousands of people have died in the conflict their rebellion is inspired by the chinese communist leader mao zedong they say they're fighting for indigenous tribes marginalized groups and the
4:38 pm
rights of poor farmers and laborers in recent years they've been responsible for attacks on politicians police men bureaucrats and foreigners they've even been blamed for prison breaks and derailing trains the indian government calls them the country's biggest internal security threats let's talk about this incident with who's a retired indian navy commodore he's also the director of the society of policy studies he's joining us from new delhi thanks for your time on al-jazeera how serious of a development is this latest incidents. i would describe it latest incident and it's quite serious because sense for any country to laws 22 security personnel. being operation in the heart of the country is a reflection of the seriousness of the trip that the indian state and the local government in this is chuck have been dealing with so the immediate incident
4:39 pm
is that the setback and who he missed a geisha and war game was a sense of what went wrong and how board a large force of police and special forces or what calming the operation what warming the area how it would be ambushed but that's the 1st aspect the 2nd as you rightly pointed out this is insurgency a low intensity conflict that's been going on all more than plead decades and in this speech here about $15000.00 people have been killed so that to give you an idea about the scale of what we are dealing with so i think being reinstated would have to go back to the drawing board to see what could be done better rates i have you are talking about it also when you say go back to the drawing board i mean and as are saying this is also a big setback for the army having 22 indian security personnel killed what happens next. mannish not be indian army it is the local police i think we need to make
4:40 pm
that distinction that at the moment we dark about security it is what the central police and the local police but even then it is a setback and my sense is that the church has got to make. local state then what happened revisit their entire strategy and the central government didn't believe it would also have to know why the necessary assistance could be with this particular issue and just for the sake of our international viewers who are mentioning a moment ago that and rightly so that this is a decades old long conflict what issues hang in the balance today. but i would say that bears being a certain inadequacy in terms of governance also in terms of building with these groups when be have made big demands when they have a gun and this is a moral bent that is at one level and india it started in what we did it for us
4:41 pm
which then got its called the not so movement it can spread through what you mean by its forms of it got into and that is where the tribals and boards or socially economically state has been below the media have certain demands and i would broadly describe this as a challenge of governance and it needs from both the center the baby and the local government. to really get back to the drawing board and come up with a different strategy that would be a mix up close relation right and also firmness and that is core ok thank you so much for joining us from new delhi. thank you. nabo gary ends are voting for a new parliament after months of anti-government protests and amid a surging coronavirus cases prime minister boyko borisov are seeking

4:43 pm
momentum after the protests last summer that matters because this anti-elitist party says it will not go into coalition with any of the mainstream parties if it gets to that and it looks like we're heading that way code for presage a period of instability in bulgaria but we've got a couple of hours left yet before the polls close and i'm more of an indication after that so book area of course in a new country burned about a former satellite of the soviet union how closely is this election then being monitored in russia. there's been some very interesting research done into bulgarians attitudes towards the e.u. which shows that while they welcome the funding and the opportunities the e.u. gives to travel a lot of bulgarians are not necessarily wedded to the liberal democratic i deal is that the u.s. trying to introduce here 45 percent in one survey said they prefer some sort of
4:44 pm
a strong mom leader who didn't have to bother with the elections was the indication that is why the e.u. is very concerned about democracy and corruption here in bulgaria we also know research has shown that russia and china have been influential in a using social media channels to push their side of the argument that is why they're also interested in what's going to happen here in bulgaria this peripheral country the e.u. that remains very influenced by russia and russian culture and russian business ok burnitz i thank you so much for that reporting from sofia bulgaria let's go to turkey now that's where there has been growing controversy about a plan to build a $9000000000.00 on the edge of istanbul the government says it will is shipping traffic on the busy bosphorus strait but opponents say apart from its environmental impact the project could undermine in 1936 montreaux accord that convention

4:46 pm
absolute sorana to all of these strategic straits which the government actually rejects it and say that's just what the way trying to is the shipping traffic in the boss' fortress which is one of the busiest maritime passage in the world so the government reaction there being quite big and the the party support person the house of the parliament director of communications of the presidency does us right after each other they've issued a statement an announcement and condemning this and saying that this is another at count of the retired generals of meddling in the politics and the army should never have any place in the politics they should stay away from such delicate issues just . the the power of the chief public prosecutor's office has initiated today a judicial process over this statement regarding to 103 retired
