4:07 pm
anger. in fact, that boycott the vote, actually the wording for that may have come from the media itself who was struggling to try and give these people who weren't going to vote a term. it came from the protest as of the october 2019 movement, but it spread across the country, not just here in mosul, but in the north. iraq is one of the kurdish region adverbial. i spoke to people, then they were telling me the same thing. what's the point of voting doesn't change anything? and the point of the protests were to try and change, not just the leadership of rock, but the way the leadership was chosen. emron many thanks in rank on their reporting live from mosul. loss more ground still to cover for you here on the news are including the prospect of a reset in relations between the taliban and the united states. at high level talks . continuing in doha, undefined from ty, one's precedence in the face of what the government calls unprecedented aggression from china. in sport baseball, it's raining will soon as champion sit back in their effort to retain the title.

4:09 pm

4:10 pm
that's after what some protesters have said with this sudden decision this morning, by the authorities to move the location of the agreed upon location of the protests from a larger, more, open, a location in tunis, just a few blocks away to the more tightly constrained avenue i'd be able to give up on . indeed some of the chance that protesters were making were very, very, very intense, very emotional saying the people want the removal of the presidents, that the security services should be neutral and that no fear power belongs to the people, things of that nature and yet very intense protest though with the rain. now, i've been told that our numbers are slowly decreasing on avenue b. but is there any indication a tool so that the president might give the protests is what they want. he might, in theory, i guess step aside in if he does what would come off to that there
