9:01 pm
exit from the european union are among the grievances that and last for thousands of years archaeologists in egypt uncover what may be one of the largest ancient cities ever found. at the masses but that around is under way with justin races still amounts of hats in 20 minutes. we start this news in myanmar where a coalition of rebels has reportedly launched a major attack on security forces for the 1st time at least 10 officers are said to been killed in the eastern shan state last month 3 rebel groups announced that they were joining forces against the military jointer an embargo around 90 kilometers northeast of yangon details are emerging of a violent crackdown on friday activists say that the military killed more than 80
9:02 pm
people out of serious tony chang as the latest. even before the sun roof the sounds of battle raged. forces moving into the city of fargo an important gateway to the sound. behind the barricades the protesters tried to stand their ground but the military advance was fierce automatic gunfire and evidence that heavier weapons pictures posted to social media appear to show rifle launched grenades and reports that 3 of myanmar's ethnic rebel groups attacked a police station in the far eastern shan state on saturday morning unity amongst these disparate groups could be problematic for the military as it faces attacks on its outposts and civil unrest in towns and cities at a news conference in yangon the gentle spokesman said support for the protest was waning and the death toll is considerably lower than reported with an ominous
9:03 pm
warning. if we really shoot at the protest group using automatic rifles the $500.00 you referred to could be killed within hours but the evidence from mandalay on saturday suggest protesters is still out in large numbers marching through the streets despite the threat of detention or worse. some have fled the cities however for the relative safety of the bases of the ethnic rebel groups along the border while the conditions may be basic the alternative could have been worse. you will need you know you will need we know that if we were to get arrested the security forces would not let us live they'd kill us so we had to run away. and the steady flow of people heading towards the borders is growing as many now fear myanmar is on an unavoidable course towards civil war a short time ago tony sends us this update. it's being reported the attack was
9:04 pm
launched by these 3 groups at 5 am at the police station it's about 20 kilometers outside last year on the mandalay last year highway an important road heading towards the chinese border one which the myanmar military control but as somebody described it to me you know as the area a little while ago it was a soft target you could see from from pictures that it was defended with barbed wire but it must have been a fairly ferocious attack exemption status say that between 10 and 14 policemen were killed in the compound families of the policemen were also living and a number of people are being reported injured. said that the military then sent a helicopter to fly over the area about an hour after the attack finished at 7 am local time that then caused the 3 ethnic groups to leave the area although there are conflicting reports as to whether there are still fighting going on but i think
9:05 pm
it is very significant that they have shown they're prepared to launch this attack since the coup on february 1st there's been talk about the ethnic groups forming an alliance getting together and we've seen various agreements being signed within some of these groups but it was also being felt they were disparate they had conflicting interests well now we've seen them actually work together on an attack that could make the military feel vulnerable in some of their more extreme outposts manzoni is a prominent human rights activist from be a man who joins us now live via skype from london good to have you with us again so what are your thoughts on these reports of the 1st attack by. this coalition of ethnic rebel groups on police how significant is that. you know it's very significant and also it could not have come sooner you know in so far as the burmese public opinion and what we're seeing is unprecedented
9:06 pm
coalescing of anti and military forces you know you have on one hand the the majority hereon ethnic put this burmese society in towns and sims on the other hand we have you know about let's just say about 20 different. ethnic organizations that have launched their arms a revolt at various. periods in history since independence and so these 2 forces additionally and historically have been kept divided by the central military but now the majority and minority ethnic communities have come to a firm conclusion that they have only one common enemy that is the burmese military that has been terrorizing the majority of burmese public and waging ethnic
9:07 pm
and colonial wars against the minorities over the last 17 years and so this is very very significant and the other one is the other significance of this attack it's indicates that you know the ceasefire signed by 10 different ethnic resistance groups has that practically collapsed and so we are looking at not just you know civil war in the making we are actually in the civil war in towns and in cities as well as in the you know minority regions of the country but that's a that's quite a claim that the country is now in the midst of a civil war is it is really that serious are things going to get a lot worse before they get any better. well i don't know if it will get better definitely it's going to get worse it's worsening that's what i like you know a lot of us start to use the seamier analogy initially people thought this could be
9:08 pm
you know the use of syria analogy is a high possibility and exaggeration no if you look at the the political and military landscape you have on one end side said a national forces about 400000 armed to teeth backed by russia and most importantly china nature stole and then you've got 54000000 people over the last 2 and half years refusing to be subdued by ruthless and pervasive killings you know in 44 different cities that you know 4 dozen children have been killed this is not accidental fire the children are killed in front of their parents activist sniper you know of course like you know death tolls over 600 not by the thousands however the sniper fire is meant to turn our eyes that community because no one is safe either in their own homes or on the street protesting or out
9:09 pm
trying to get groceries so we are actually on the brink of a very serious syria like a situation in the middle of southeast asia. again so many thanks for being with us manzoni there in london thank you iran says that it's begun testing new advanced uranium enrichment centrifuges just ahead of another round of talks in vienna president hassan rouhani made the announcement during a virtual meeting on iran's annual national nuclear technology day around spent steadily moving away from the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal since the u.s. pulled out under donald trump other parties in the deal are trying to revive it as a big has the latest from iran's capital tehran. this is a national day of nuclear chief this day came about back in 2006 when iran managed to enrich uranium to about 3.5 percent using centrifuges made in the country now we
9:10 pm
were expecting over $130.00 announcement of new achievements in relation to its nuclear program now iran is using more advanced centrifuges and feeding into them but it's also began production of the 6 centrifuges that's important because under the 2 $1015.00 nuclear deal iran is restricted to using older and less efficient centrifuges not these ones but also. apparently the production of the centrifuges was damaged because of apparent sabotage last summer and now iran says that they are producing this now this is all in the context of those talks that took place in vienna and did yesterday continue next week on wednesday and this is just iran showing that they will continue along this line along this path as long as those sanctions are not lifted and. the europeans are not living up to their commitments and iran has been pretty transparent about it they've told the international atomic agency of what they've been doing and as far as iran is concerned they're within
9:11 pm
the agreement to take what they see as remedial measures but the europeans and i think this is a breach but the supreme leader said just 2 weeks ago that iran will continue down this path as some of the other countries don't fulfill their responsibilities but it does add that extra layer of complexity to those talks because as time goes by iran continues to take steps further away from those restrictions imposed on its nuclear program as part of that 2015 nuclear deal. and iran lecturer into discipline recenter. he says that israel wants to be heard during negotiations with iran. israel has realized that the netanyahu and ministration that he made a mistake during the obama administration off airing all its differences with in the public media mr lithonia went as far as giving a speech in
9:12 pm
a congress against the iranian cliff deal that only did not work it also hurt relationship with the united states saw on the one hand we see israel is now. talking to the americans but it's doing so intensely but privately 1st and foremost is secondly yes there are concerns of when you 'd are not party to talks but the effect you has is that case with israel. it's always more difficult to get what you want it's even more difficult i mean it's always difficult enough for parties involved in talks directly to get what they want here for israel which is not party to the talks it's even more difficult so they are you know the current israeli government through these talks putting its point across to the united states to divide it ministration with their hope that during these they were sheesh and. the result will also be suitable for israel and in their nuclear program and also
9:13 pm
guarded other concerns that israel has with iran 1st and foremost the new in the missile program and also its presence in the middle east there with the news out from our serious talks come on the program a promise of support from turkey ukraine's president because it is time ball as russian troops mobilized on his eastern border. and scrambling to escape an erupting volcano sounds to people a force to get off a caribbean island. and later in sport we build up to one of the biggest games and world football el classico between possible and real madrid. turkey's president is calling for an end to what he describes as worrying developments in eastern ukraine the one that's been holding talks with his ukrainian counterpart a lot of his alinsky in istanbul erdogan says that he hopes the conflict in eastern
9:14 pm
ukraine could be resolved with dialogue russian forces have been recently mobilizing along the border for more of a meeting let's go live to istanbul 0 cinema cacio who is the what more did president reach the top of the one have to say. well our dream after the ukraine crisis is the delicate diplomatic issue for turkey because on one side turkey has the nato ally united states that supports ukraine and on the other side it has the neighbor russia which is which is one of the important trade partners of turkey and a strategic partner in syria and libya so today president died on actually sure the clear stance with regard to this situation in crimea because he said that turkey supports ukraine's territorial integrity and in turkey
9:15 pm
a new crane is still on the same page not recognizing the illegal our next station of crimea. by the russian government also on the other side. with regard to the developments in is there new crane especially in the us area don again said that the tension in the black sea especially in ukraine must be dealt with diplomacy and the black sea basin should be a base and for peace and stability this is what they would pledge for of course 2 countries have been trying to boost their if by later they cannot make ties and diplomatic ties and presence there don said that now they established a new platform which is called the 2 plus 2 defense ministries and the foreign ministries of both countries are establishing a platform to pursue the dialogue but dawn on the line that this new platform is another threat to the country so basically he meant that yesterday ukraine and
9:16 pm
turkey are boosting to economic and political ties but we are not actually in representing any threat to russia but he has a clear stance about the conflict in ukraine which is on the side of ukraine which is actually again on the side of nato. besides the 2 countries are going to be work is working was a many defense projects still a free trade agreement is being worked on and 2 conferees will have a cooperation on a joint. craft manufacturing on the other on the other side of the ukrainian president on the line that is turkey and ukraine shared the same views on the threats in the black sea so basically 2 leaders so that they are on the same page about the conflicts and the tension in the black sea southern cross era live in istanbul many thanks so them several police officers were injured in another night
9:17 pm
of street violence in northern ireland protesters in belfast threw petrol bombs and rammed a burning car into a police vehicle despite calls for calm out of respect for the death of prince philip young british loyalists have been rising every night for more than a week now angry about post briggs it issues from belfast and to simmons has more on the causes of the violence 2 decades after the good friday agreement brought peace to northern ireland. many had warned about the fragile peace in northern ireland being threatened by arrangements over bricks it coming back to the good friday agreement on this day it was signed 23 years ago and it is being the center point of those bricks and negotiations the end result was to avoid a hard hard border to put it across the ira see that cause chaos and trade for
9:18 pm
northern ireland it led to a whole area of dissent and then into mingled with a whole range of other issues with republicans demonstrating quite clearly their strength during a funeral exactly well nearly just exactly a year ago the story and i are a member of a petrol i remember had died and the police did took no action with the 2000 people amongst them in fein leaders who broke coded regulations apparently now the loyalists of the unionist politicians have said point blank the police should have taken action and we have amongst this or all of this with the police under pressure a call from the 1st minister ali and foster for the chief constable of northern ireland to resign which he refuses to do so you have that going on as an irritation to loyalists who are furious about that add to that the nature of the paramilitaries the loyalist paramilitaries being involved 'd in organized crime
9:19 pm
some theories suggest that they are the cause of a lot of this violence they're actually organizing it and in fact calling for a low in all of the violence because of prince philip dying that was breached on friday night as we saw and now there is a worry that this could go on this is not going away by no means. of the robert schumann center the european university institute she says that it was clear well before the referendum that briggs it would be dangerous for northern ireland and the current events were predictable. it's happening because there's an impossible problem there once the left is in the markers in the customs union it has an international border with the arn and it's a member state of the women mainly so a border has to go somewhere and from the beginning it was realised that you can't
9:20 pm
simply couldn't police the 300 crossings of the land border and people who live on that border voted decisively against bretz so they simply would not give their consent so then the only result to get the kind of brecht's that the boris johnson wanted which was sovereignty 1st breakfast was that there he had to a border in the irish sea having himself said that no british prime minister was doing so and this has undermined. the loyalist. their sense that london will take care of them it has raised issues of identity the demographics in northern ireland are shifting so the lawyer loyalists immunise feel more vulnerable now and this then comes on top of a lot of socio economic problems in loyalist areas so what we're seeing in oregon are in today it's very dangerous it's not just a problem for the u.k. government i think london dublin brussels and i would also say washington needs to
9:21 pm
look carefully at the protocol grama time at the checks if necessary some of those checks should happen in fact before breaking the pay to northern ireland and now the e.u. see all of the computer and the computer systems and data systems on what is what is crossing and then d. dramatize everything but that still doesn't solve the political problem which is there must be a border and the one thing about the sea is people don't live on the sea where is a land border in my view is completely impossible. so the protocol will have to survive but he they really and i don't just mean london but everyone involved with power and authority need to make sure that each is streamlined to the extent possible that it is minimized to the extent possible but there still would remain a problem for loyalism at
9:22 pm
a time as i already said all that is significant democrat demographic shift in northern ireland and the group in northern ireland that neither identifies as loyal as unionist or nationalist are the group that will determine whether or not northern ireland stays long term in the united kingdom gun salutes a been fired across the u.k. and scenes on a prince philip queen elizabeth's husband died on friday at the age of $99.00 he served in the british navy during the 2nd world war were a challenge for ford style from london. was. across the u.k. including london edinburgh cardiff northern ireland on the royal naval ships at sea and. a special gun salute for prince philip what's a minute 41 times. a tribute to from his son prince charles. my dip of. was was
9:23 pm
a very special person who i think above all else would have been amazed by the reaction and the touching things that have been said about him and from that point of who we are my family deeply grateful for all that it will sustain us in this particular loss and at this particularly sad time. outside the queen's london residence a growing row of flowers from the public for the man who stood beside her for 73 years of marriage. it's a reminder for our serves you know those wonderful values of bravery and loyalty and he was just a great british man someone who gives that many years to public service it's just come down on. him a sad moment isn't it. well meaning something the royal family is trying to discourage because of restrictions buckingham palace is keen to avoid the royal
9:24 pm
residence is turning into a focus of mass mourning it's actually asked people not to come down here and lay flowers but as you can see there is a steady stream of people who've turned up to pay their respects anyway the pandemic has also drastically scaled down plans for how he'll be laid to rest philip himself had ruled out a state funeral buckingham palace has announced the service at windsor castle on april 17th is to have no public access for public procession beforehand as per the u.k.'s pandemic regulations the number of mourners will be limited to 30 prince harry he's distanced himself from the royal family will return from his new home in the us for it but his pregnant wife megan markel will not on the advice of her doctor. al-jazeera london. workers at an amazon warehouse in alabama voted against forming the company's 1st union in the united states it's a setback for the u.s. labor movement but activists say the fight isn't over reports. this
9:25 pm
was a blowout by a more than 2 to one margin employees at this amazon warehouse and bessemer alabama voted against joining a union the campaign to unionize had been seen as a potential turning point in labor relations in the u.s. amazon is the nation's 2nd largest employer none of its workers are unionized but it's not over yet the retail wholesale and department store union says it will challenge the results the results demonstrate the powerful impact of employers intimidation and interference we will be calling got the labor board to hold amazon accounts of all so it's a great just say hey if you're going to care paying the union says amazon unduly pressured workers to vote no creating an atmosphere of fear from organizing mandatory lectures for workers that argued against united nations to having managers encourage workers to vote in front of them and employing an agency to
9:26 pm
monitor workers social media posts amazon also asked the u.s. postal service to install a mailbox outside the warehouse even though the national labor relations board the government agency overseeing the election has said it did not want voting on the amazon site in case it suggested amazon was directly involved in collecting the votes if the n.l.r.b. accept the union's complaints the election could be rerun or the results could even be overturned and the union certified however amazon has dismissed any concerns in a statement it says it's easy to predict the union will say that amazon won this election because we intimidated employees but that's not true amazon didn't women our employees made the choice to vote against joining a union long time observers of labor relations in the usa the r.w.d. s u is partly to blame for the results. this is the birth of the shooting action movie solidarity extremism where we saw we do see chicago on
9:27 pm
a well strike well. iran was they didn't build enough support. and so they tried to rush this and so now i think what we have to do is build a new movement of amazon workers nationwide co-incident long term labor advocates argue that the history of union organizing in the u.s. has always been a gradual process facing as it does such powerful opposition the all w d s u says it's received over a 1000 and quantities from amazon workers across the country about you know i think since this election began we got a bite or are right if human beings not robots in addition there is no renewed focus on a union rights bill that's already passed the house of representatives in washington that would make some of his almost alleged tactics during this election illegal jabatan see al-jazeera. we're going to weather updates next on our 0 and then when the news hour resumes we'll have a report on a by a local campaign in gaza that's trying to help farmers and fishermen who said it was no wonder is it uneasy as film industry turns its attention online to make

9:34 pm
running out of the only option that many or thora teams have simply to impose more and more restrictions they tend to do them short because it does seem as though the population in many countries are at the top of the restrictions or their indifferent or the openly defying the certainly the case in brazil led by president jabal xanadu oh well they can do they trying to do this really to keep the numbers down to keep the lesson the strain on the health systems we've already seen several in several countries the health systems overwhelms the paraguayan health minister talking about the situation there we've had hospitals across brazil where the i.c.u. beds are at over 100 percent capacity really they do that they keep they put the restrictions in place to try to keep those numbers down while we're waiting for the vaccines to arrive you mention they began arriving a few weeks ago but since then after the razzmatazz of the early the early arrivals
9:35 pm
we've started to see a lessening of those vaccines arriving a few elderly people have acts in ated some of the most vulnerable but the vast bulk of the populations in most countries in latin america simply haven't been vaccinated yet and don't see those vaccinations coming anytime soon so that is a frustration and the various governments are in a position where they have to try to manage that impatience that frustration about the vaccinations coming as you mentioned haiti not a single vaccination yet they talk about the official figures talk about 250 people dead most observers suspect that the figures a much much higher than that health infrastructure which is very very weak and the situation very dire in the midst of rising political and criminal violence in that country see as a serious situation around the region really until those vaccinations start to arrive in the substantial numbers
9:36 pm
a dire situation with very little lights on the horizon. general sherman reporting live there from one of study or many thanks indeed. fires a bio and tech have asked us regulators to approve their coronavirus vaccine for emergency use in some children the companies have asked the u.s. food and drug administration to give the vaccine the ok for kids aged 12 to 15 many experts say that thanks amazing children is a critical step towards reaching herd immunity and easing the pandemic well 3 vaccines are currently on the rise for emergency use in the united states pfizer was the 1st to be approved the people aged over 16 a recent trial on 12 to 15 year olds was said to be safe and effective it's also running a trial on kids younger than 12 the dermis vaccine has emergency approval for people aged 18 and over data from its own trial on adolescents is expected to come out soon and it's also running a trial on kids younger than 12 the vaccine from johnson and johnson is the latest
9:37 pm
to be approved people over the age of 18 can take it and a clinical trial on teenagers is also on the way christopher thompson is an associate professor of biology at loyola university of maryland he explains why vaccinating young people should be a top priority. we talk a lot about herd immunity and this idea that if we get enough people in the world vaccinated that the virus will kind of die out it won't have anyone to replicate within so in the united states about 23 percent of the population are under the age of 18 so there's no way mathematically that we can get to herd immunity without vaccinating children so this is a huge step in the right direction there's this adage within the vaccine community that children are not just young adults so we have to really adapt the vaccines and the dosage and things that nature to children it may not just be a matter of giving them a lower dose the stuff the visor has come out with is very promising so it looks as though it's a very effective it's
9:38 pm
a very safe in the side effects that we're seeing with that vaccine very similar to what adults have some joint pain some muscle pain at the side of injection maybe some fevers and and feeling a little under the weather for 24 hours or so but it doesn't appear that we're having major side effects that we might expect from younger immune systems in gaza the agricultural fishing sectors subpoenaed by the coronavirus pandemic officials are trying to help by launching a campaign to encourage people to buy local rather than imported food but the tesh are going to aim has been visiting farmers who say that they're still struggling to survive. 12 hours of prepping the soil for watermelon season will earn so a lot a lot about $12.00 a day. the college graduate studied business administration but farm work is the only job he could find on weekends to stop the spread of covert 19 officials in gaza stop all travel by car or bus with minimal exceptions so
