present a hoax. created memory manufacturing ignorance score 2 thirds. this is or news live from berlin mass detentions at the highest level in jordan officials insist the former crown prince is part of what they call a malicious plot to destabilize the kingdom also coming up pope francis gives his traditional easter blessing and urges rich countries to make sure that 19 vaccines are fairly distributed to the world. and voting in
a pandemic area holds elections despite being gripped by a 3rd wave of coronavirus actions no postal ballots allowed and officials in protective gear deliver voting papers to people in quarantine. welcome to the program jordan says it has uncovered a plot to destabilize the kingdom involving the former crown prince the government maintains hamza bin hussein and others were undermining security as many as 20 high level officials have been arrested hamza denies being part of a conspiracy. according to jordan's security officials the king's half brother bin hussein had been under investigation for some time the country's foreign minister said the former crown prince was trying to mobilize tribal leaders against the
government with support from abroad. i mean the investigations monitored interference including calls with foreign parties were guarding the suitable timing to start steps to shake the security of our steady jordan. 16 people including a former adviser to king abdullah and another member of the royal family were arrested the military initially denied arresting hum's i've been hussein and said it had issued him a warning for his actions but in a video statement sent to media on saturday prince holmes that claimed he had been placed under house arrest for associating with critics of the royal family there is no conspiracy. it's. restricted.
to distract. though he no longer holds an official title remains a popular figure in the country. it's just not right for prince homs or to be linked to these people these are people who jordanian see as questionable who are really frowned upon. in what. we do not want to see anything no matter how small happened in this country this country is now in a stable and secure and i ask god to have this country remain stable and secure. and many see the stability in king abdul of the 2nd he has enjoyed widespread popularity during his reign jordan is widely seen as an island of carbon a troubled region strategically located between israel syria saudi arabia and iraq
the u.s. u.k. and several arab nations of all expressed their full support for the reigning monarch. and for more on this we're joined now by. he's a political analyst and columnist the deputy prime minister is accusing prince hands of working with what he calls foreign parties to undermine the security of jordan what does he mean by that. well actually this is surprising this is a very surprising statement by the foreign minister and actually we usually in gordon we don't have any let's say enemies or somebody or any foreign power that is interested in this applies in the country so basically this was a bit surprising and as long as the foreign minister talked about this i guess there should be also concrete evidence as for there so basically this might lead to a new. let's see confrontation for door than with this new reality although all
we in jordan believe and there that there is nobody targeting the internal situation of jordan so the issue is been explained as well from their reaction of most of the countries are to the issue yesterday happened yesterday like the support endorsement of king of the lucky him from all over the world so this means that. in reality we don't feel that there is anybody interested in this destabilisation of jordan so i think the government is a blight soon to reveal these concrete evidences in order to be credible and then and especially also for the interior an audience on the part jordanian public opinion i mean what when he talks about foreign parties there's a could be a number of countries including saudi arabia your neighborhood who were mohamed bin salman has been engaged in a number of foreign adventures that are people talking about that as a possibility. well i i don't think that there is an evidence for there simply may
be there are not meant of that resting of power the law works were moments of man might lead to this but not forget that king abdullah laws last visit was confronted and so the man and he went along with the crown prince and this might be linked also to what's happening here then immediately the 1st country to endorse. his majesty's airports while he was saudi arabia this means there. are politically speaking or diplomatically speaking there is no proof that the saudis might be interested in such issue otherwise i think there are all the law wouldn't have been addressed in this way prince hamza spoke of poor and incompetent governance in that video without naming the king but could this be the remark of a bitter half brother deprived of his status as crown prince or is there truth behind really saying. well it's not new that he left. his death as
a crown prince it's more than 15 years now that he's not a crown prince so basically i don't see direct link between that specie that he after that he had a lot of very famous letter saying that he has no desire for governance and he would understand this then he appeared in recent years morse lee engaging in domestic issues so it's not it's something unusual surprising to see that these words which is common and boredom i though it recently in public opinion there's very high criticism toward the public the food let's say governance of governments not being said from a member of the royal family is a bit shocking or surprising and for sure it's risky because it opens. let's say kind of affection which is another story in jordan but in fact jordan is based on the strength and unity of this time elite we never with that so if i
want to remember. in the previous. can call saying it was a very smooth transition and therefore it's a bit surprising foci will thank you so much for helping us try to understand the surprise political analyst in a math christians around the world have been celebrating easter under the shadow of the pandemic for the 2nd year running pope francis has given his traditional blessing from st peter's basilica and rome he stressed the importance of vaccines and urged rich countries to ensure supplies are fairly distributed to their poorer neighbors. it believed to be putting a blessing for the faithful. pope francis address just a small crowd compared to the usual tens of thousands on easter sunday but his message was one for the world. into.

millions across the world who found ways to celebrate despite the covert 9000 restriction. in jerusalem however this year's worshipers were allowed to participate in mass at the holy settled considered the holiest place in christianity but even there the pandemic was front of mind. i think about my fear for brazil. and they cannot. believe. it's. like the pope in rome they to speak of hope amid the pandemic. like the pope in rome they too speak of hope amid the pandemic.
