ah ah ah, ah, this is al jazeera ah, hello, i'm rob matheson, this is the news are live from doha. coming up in the next 60 minutes, miramar falls silent in a protest against military rule as international concern. months over violent crackdowns by government troops and over crowded truck transporting migrants, crashes in mexico, killing at least 53 people there were thought to be traveling to the u. s. nicaragua, and zip diplomatic ties with taiwan. choosing to officially recognized china plus
the international criminal court investigates the venezuelan government's actions during the unrest there in 2017. and on he december to the schools knees, it's called a final. they apathy for era cup with hosts cutter up against the u. e. and in the ashes england stage a fight back against australia half century, some jo route, and david milan give them a chance in the 1st test. ah, we're going to start this news are in me and mark where people across several cities are holding a silent protest against military rule. the streets of downtown young gong have been deserted. it's seen as a safe for you to demonstrate mass demonstrations immediately after the qu, we're met by a brutal crackdown. months on violence is continuing new video claims to show the
bodies of 10 people killed in the northwestern district of sagging well, tony jennings, live for us in bangkok. tony, we're seeing silent vigils this time in the face of more violence in miramar. indeed and who has been respected across most of the urban centers as he said than young gone, the largest city, very few people out on the streets a few commuters going into work, but the businesses shut every were a very few people going out in mandalay in the center of the busy markets there were deserted. all the shops were closed in the northern city of sri more, there was a small demonstration of protest as coming out. they're wearing black as a sign of their protest against the government and the military coup. um, but sir, we have seen the protest as changing their tactics in recent months, as the intensity of the crack down from the military is followed. they had started
using flash mobs were small group, small groups of people would pop up in various places that demonstrate very quickly and then dispersed before the military or the police could get to them. on sunday or last week, they tried to do the same. immediately a military vehicle drove into the crowd at high speed, killing 5 and injuring many more. so i think this is a demonstration. once again, that people want the world to know that they oppose very vehemently. the military coup, none the less that they, they realised it is dangerous. but i think also the fact that it is so universally respected is a sign of just how many people out there still refuse to accept the coo and their military government. in a scene too gruesome to show a camera pans from pulls of blood to a clearing with a pile of charred bodies,
we are deeply concerned by the reports of the horrific killings of 11 people in salon good township in northwest sung young region. in myanmar who reportedly shot and burnt by military on tuesday morning in an apparent retaliation for recent military attack militia attacks. credible reports indicate that 5 children were among those people killed them at the scene in voices cracking with emotion. men vow to avenge those that have died is a terrible is really something dead. it will take so long for the keep of mama to forget me. a man's military have shown no mercy for those that opposed the qu on sunday. as a flash mob protested took to the streets. a military truck drove into the crowd, but speed. 5 people killed dozens more injured and arrested.
since the coo and february, mia mars military that faced increased opposition from peaceful civilian protest is on the streets. and increasingly from armed and surgeon groups like this one, the corona nationalities defense falls despite the harsh conditions in the jungle training camps. and the threat of attack from the military, these new recruits, felt they had little choice farther than, oh nina, we never expected this revolution would happen. at 1st, we were protesting peacefully law, but he didn't work. and we never thought we would be in the jungle fighting against the military, but it is what we have to face grammar yet as the atrocities mount up, the protest continue. this flash mob hit the streets of young gun as news at the sentencing of anson. so cheat a 2 years in jail was released. she liked the other democratically elected leaders of men. my may now be locked up, but a younger generations. taking up the fight against military rule. tony cheng
meltzer or going robinson is a senior fellow at the institute of security and international studies that show along hong university. she's joining us now from bangkok go to have you with us. i want to ask you 1st about these silent protests. the protesters are believing that this is going to be a safe way to mark their opposition is are going to protect them from the military . do you think? well, i mean, even hiding in they heinz' wave saying even in the week following the to didn't hell a lot of to be and to, ah, were taken or brutalized by troops that we've seen going through the streets and shooting into houses that was early on in the around march, and it peaked, i think a few months later lately, as you wait, just heard, there are these flash mob protests and we thought the terrible consequences earlier this week when the military truck rammed in to protest as so it's actually
a relief to say this silent project protest which is extraordinary. the footage from all the main cities and towns in myanmar today, everything is empty. shops to close, it remains to be seen if they'll be retaliation tonight, the kind of things we saw before. troops roaming the straits, shooting into houses so far that it has. we haven't seen that level of intimidation now in response today. let me ask you about the video that tony was talking about in his report just a few moments ago. now we should stipulate that as far as i'm aware, we're not able to establish when these pictures were taken or who they were taken by. but in the event that they are proved to be correct. and we heard a step on to judge from the un saying that as far as they're concerned, there seems to be some sort of legitimacy to it. what do you think that that tells us about the way that the military is dealing with opposition and people within me and more well, it's a good going down. it's
a very good going to make that this is not being verified, but we have seen the list of the names of does something does child bodies which does include at least 5 under a chain. these are all villages in this area down to a village in saline g area which is in a going state which is bay, not one of the front lines of being targeted by the military for cracking down on resistance. and it's very clear that in this area, just a couple of days preceding what is purported to be the timing of this burning of the bodies, they were ambushes by local peoples defense forces, resistance fighters, all in the military convoy. this is a pattern that's been happening in these areas where we have seen a lot of resistance from people that when there is an attack, even if it's a small attack on a military convoy or a military unit,
we have seen terrible retaliation bombings of villages raising of, of houses it has sent, at least, i think in this region alone, about 30000 people into hiding but a total of at least 250000 people display since february the 1st as a result of these kind of actions. i think we've also had the u. s. state department spokesman, nate bryce, i say the u. s. as is outraged by the military marika or at least the mascot. it's going and it's, it's very clear who diana blaming. yeah. it's one thing to place blame. it's and to, to vocalize your opposition to something like this. it's quite another thing to do something about it. and what seems to be a powering to is that the there might be international outreach, but in terms of actually trying to do anything to constrain the me on my military. well, that seems to be another subject altogether. do you think that the me and more military
is getting more emboldened by the fact that there isn't an overt, i'm strong international response? well, we definitely seeing an intensification of, of the actual scope and scale of attacks on civilian villages. people right through the country. and specifically targeting these areas, as i said, resistance and that's at least half a dozen not states or regions. so i would suggest the other thing we don't know the photo of those chart bodies. but and the footage of the video footage of the trucks ramming into civilian protesters and shooting shows us something else, which is what we don't know is happening. i mean that photo of the john bodies, someone very brave, took that photo and posted that photo. and we can only depend on what he's coming out on social media. as all independent media have basically been closed down
journalists are in hiding. and anyone court filming military forces is really risks, not just a risk, but probably torture. so the fact that we've seen that for that makes you think, how much of this stuff is going on if day, and a lot of reports on social media that are making it on twitter. facebook suggest that there is a lot of these, some, some of the small level intimidation in rural areas. often when there are no cameras around. so i would say that we were seeing an intensification of the brutality. and we've had the want to lead a general mean online, actually say on record valve to stamp out all resistance and they have brand at any protesters terrorists, and that's it. then tell glen robinson, we appreciate your being with us on all 0. thank you ma'am. thank you very much. do an overcrowded, soc is crashed in southern mexico,

israel. also a hamis did not. i have a massive festival that coasts tens of thousands of dollars like every year to celebrate its anniversary. instead, it chose to do it in parts of the street and got the city in different regions. and it announced that it's going to keep the expenses or st the expenses of this huge festival of its anniversary to distribute on the poor families of the gods to strip in light of the. a very deteriorating humanitarian conditions and economy conditions that gaza has been going on a with us since after the latest escalation. so this is also a very important move, but also from us has chosen to celebrate its festival or its anniversary by a popular rally which shows the support of the people. it knows that israel is going to be watching the entire world is going to be watching this anniversary. and
it was to showcase the support of the popular it's popular support by the people of god. and also it's going to be accompanied by a military parade which also showcases its power and, and it's going on a popularity in gaza una, thank you very much and did juvenile saves life 1st and phone, gaza thousands upon the students were jewelled for taking part in an uprising against israelis and the early 2 thousands. what it gave was one of those 41 year old was released from prison in september. he says, when he's happy to be out there is a lot he needs to learn and adopt to. this is his story, and his own words is mary maria greer. my name is maria gazed. i'm from derek asana near ramallah. i'm 41 and i've spent 17 years in israeli jails of harbor her. birth of the most difficult time was towards the end of my sentence, the weight of all how do i relate to people?
so every time i got off the la police, it was difficult. why i sure was happy to leave jail, but i couldn't turn around and say good bye to all my cell mates. i waved, i couldn't look them in the eyes or a covers were burned or been loyal to laportia, hands from behind glass and speak to a phone. there's no physical contact too often. they often come in tired. most prisoners don't like to get visits after while, because of his railey searches and humiliation. well, with the babylonian young global feminist new, i got to see my mother 8 years ago. maybe i saw my parents twice in 17 years older than i remember taking a photo with them once. when that was still allowed. we used to get a family picture every 5 years of i was hoping earth and the were further away from stay too much further. the settlements, the attacks, the siege on people and cutting off palestinian immunity, along with clifford field. another le mervin fulton of the landscape had changed
for look at the settlement. it's expanded all the way here. monarch would have been a threat than what they would call women. i don't say people should carry guns and fight palestinians fight when they remain connected to the land when they serve it and one another lot of our ally dirty people's attitudes and manners seem to have changed. vinny, i'm asked you to measure that of life is going fast. everyone's on their cell phones going their own way. society change used to be closer. we can are you? there was solid charity, was now everyone is on their own. and i thought the people now only worry about their finance, that bugs me, but i don't blame them, but they want to provide for their children. i blame the official and thought about the letter. people don't know what department hungers terrible when they say years . president joe biden's reaffirmed his commitment to ukraine, the sovereignty and a phone call with president of loading me as lensky ukrainian leaders. as the
parent also discuss possible options for ending the conflict in eastern ukraine. when they spoke on thursday, it follows tuesdays virtual summit between president biden and russian president vladimir person. but the u. s. one of heavy sanctions in russia invades ukraine by dish, guess not what the support of nato countries ukraine is being pumped full of weapons and cave is building up its contingent on the line of contact. and on back the number of these 5 violations which have happened since it was signed in july 2020. it's coming close 290-0000. the spatial monitoring mission to ukraine has registered the redeployment of heavy weapons, including high caliber tillery and vehicles to the east of the country with that account being disputed by the white house at places the blame, squarely on russia. the russians are known for their rhetorical escalations as they are also known for their ways of providing misinformation around the world and
within eastern flank countries. so i think we have to take their own efforts to communicate to their public with a grain of salt. what we know is that, oh, the aggression here is on the russian side. the military buildup is on the russian side. there is a path, a diplomatic path forward. oh, the part of the president's objective, our president's objective in having the call was to convey that clearly that certainly is our preference. but also to convey clearly that there would be consequences. they would be significant and severe and we're going to coordinate with our european partners on that telstar. put husband from telson in southern new crime. well presidents and hence gay's office has put out some statements about the contents of that conversation. i'll read out some of the salient points to you that being said, according to lindsey's office, during that conversation, that was said that the u. s. has decided to become an active participant in the settlement process in dawn by us in parallel with the normandy format. now this is
interesting because normally for math that is made up of france, germany, russia, and ukraine has by all accounts. according to most stanley's been and on l. tracy failure since it was initiated 7 years ago. so, and a lot of analysts have been trying to, trying to, to, to, to, to force the point that is absolutely vital to get the us a bigger role in, in trying to forge a lasting piece piece process and settlement to this conflict. so that's very interesting that there seems to be certainly some sort of agreement that there will be an increase role for the us in this office. also saying that the decision on ukraine's sanctions and nato depends on the decision of ukraine and nato members . that's what biden said in that conversation was zalinski. obviously, this may not go down very well. it's whole with moscow. we know that obviously,
nato nato membership for ukraine is one of the main big red lines for moscow. the white house saying that biden supports the aspiration of ukraine to be a nato member, and says that the aggression is on russia's side regarding ukraine. it's going to be very interesting to see what kind of response comes from moscow in the coming hours and days talks to revive the 2015 iran nuclear deal are continuing on friday in vienna. happening under increased pressure after the by the ministration hinted at new sanctions or even military consequences. if traditional difficulties diplomacy fails, the us envoy for iran spoke with our white house correspondent kimberly hall before leaving for the austrian capital. she started by asking him why the u. s is still moving to tyson sanctions as a talk. so i'm going is it helpful to be pushing for that as you're trying to get
a deal? we are prepared to get back into the deal as soon as possible as soon as are on it . and we would lift all of the sanctions are inconsistent with adjacent to it. but in the meantime, we can stand by and not be prepared for world in which iran may be choosing to delay build its program, try to build more leverage. we honestly have to respond and so that's what we're doing. we're preparing ourselves for that that, that outcome. how concerned are you or how concerned is the united states that israel could potentially drag the united states into an armed conflict with iran? we are privileging the path of diplomacy. we think it's the best way. it's best for us. we suspect it's best we're wrong, but iran will have to decide that as president biden secretary, blinking has both said, if iran chooses regard despite our diplomatic offer to take a different path, then we'll have to use the, the tools at our disposal to make sure that iran does not acquire a nuclear weapon. why should iran trust the united states? so given the fact that it knows full well that 2020 for presidential election could
bring another president could completely undo any of the efforts you're making right now. this is not a deal that is based on trust, and so it's not, we don't trust ratings, don't trust us. and what happened when the u. s. withdrew from the deal is that a ron started wrapping up its nuclear program. that's why president biden is back and has given us the mandate to try to get back into the deal, and he would not be extending this political capital making this effort if his goal was to come in and then withdraw. of course, we don't know what the future president will do. we don't know what the future reigning leadership will do, but we think that it's in our mutual interest to get back in to deal with the united states. be willing, at any point to meet face to face with a run in negotiators. we're prepared to meet with them face to face. we think it's far superior to indirect negotiations and we're dealing with something this complex with so much look so much mistrust with so much potential for misunderstanding. so we've said we'll meet at any time in any place. they are the ones who are not
prepared to do it for their own reasons. we think it's a mistake. we think it's a mistake that hurts both of us. we know that these talks are not open ended. the united states has made that clear. what's the timeframe we're looking for? as i've said before, this is a technological clock. it's not a chronological clock. in other words, if they slow down the nuclear program would have more time if they continue, the current pace than time is running out. secretary lincoln has made that clear over and over again. time is running out and we and the europeans will have to conclude if, if a run continues down this path, they have killed adjacent to a, an adjacent way would be no more. we hope that's not the case. we are fully committed to a mutual return to compliance with jesse 3. we think there's still time to do it. if iran comes back and says they're prepared to roll up their sleeves and do it to let me bring you some breaking news. a london court has ruled the wick helix founder jiliana. science can be extradited to the united states. the 50 year old could not face trial in the u. s. for publishing classified military documents
about the was in the kind of stand and iraq or nothing bothers. joining me now from live, i've cited the court in london. and what's been happening inside the court. rob the decision has just come in. mr. sanchez supports his head. a being briefed, i've heard a cry of disgrace because lawyers for the united states have won their appeal against the decision early this year that he should and i to the united states. now the judge is the to judge his head have continued arguments by lawyers for the us and union assigns made in october. the us was saying that basically the decision not to extradite him was based solely on his mental health and the risks and the potential risks of suicide if he were held in isolation in a supermarket. so could supermarket jail in the u. s who they said he wouldn't have to be held in such conditions and they'd had a diplomatic assurance his that he could 70 jailed sentence in australia. they also
suggested that there were other circumstances that should have been taken into account, such as the fact that he now has 2 children by his partner, stella morris. a. he's a lawyer said that to him, those assurances didn't really mean anything. and they also brought up the matter of reports not denied by the cia that, that been a plot to assassinate julian assent when he was in the ecuadorian embassy. well, now we have that decision. it's a big win for the u. s. which argues that he broke the law by conspiring to obtain and publish confidential wires, thousands of them about the war in afghanistan and iraq. he has been supported all along by rights group such as reports is without borders, which say that he has, he acted as a journalist and that this raises very serious questions about the freedom of speech. what happens next? nothing. all right,
now jillian assange would be heading back to bell marsh prison here in london where he's been since 29 team. now he was actually following a via events here as he was in october via a video link. the parties here concerned were not present. it's possible that julian assange can now appeal this decision at the supreme court. here in london, the whole process could potentially take years. of course, this is not a good outcome for him, particularly given what we know about his health and the warnings that have come from stella morris, and his supporters about his a mental condition. they are extremely worried as well, about the precedent vist that this could set if he were eventually to be sent to the united states. but right now that could be some way off. and him, thank you very much, cindy. just to remind you of that breaking news from london,
the london court has ruled that we can expand our journey. our sons can be extradited to the united states. that followed a ruling that yuki judges had upheld a u. s. government appeal against the block on julian sanchez extradition. the 50 year old man could know face trial in the u. s. for publishing classified military documents about the wars in afghanistan and iraq were bringing your life pictures from outside. the court for that hearing has been held. you can see supporters of julian sans outside, they're very vocal in their opposition to the result of this hearing. ah, now the international criminal court has opened an investigation into the venezuelan government handling of opposition protest in 2017 more than a 100 people were killed during months of unrest. it's the 1st time the icpc has launched an inquiry against a southern american nation. pretty simple reports and come back us
a thing. it's been 4 years since i read and hasi beverly, this son was killed during protesting venezuela. one battle with a student and died of cardio janick shock in april 2017. after being hit by a tear gas canister at close range for easter, he sister with a cancer patient. and barlow was frustrated with a situation which made it difficult for her to be treated. to me but i was told, my son was dead. it was like the world stopped, they broke our life. i remember that day because they killed my husband and me. 2 years later, our daughter died of cancer. they destroyed our family in the same way. they have destroyed hundreds of families in venezuela. kampala was a basketball player, and a student was told that everything has been a challenge fighting the prosecutor's office. the prosecutor has been changed 15 times in 2019. all the actions came from.
