6:07 am
it could be a whole different situation with two sides on the legal argument saying that he thought he should either continue in prison or he should be released to carry on with the appeals process very difficult situation how much concern is there about what could happen about instability that might ensue if he isn't allowed to compete in upcoming elections. well a great deal and he's still a very very popular politician the opinion polls his supporters are absolutely convinced that he's allowed to stand in those elections in october he would be a clear winner he was an extremely popular president while in power between two thousand and three and two thousand and so to say still enjoys a great deal of support but these very many legal obstacles in the way even if he's allowed out now or the peel and he puts his name forward by august stand in those elections electoral court still has to decide whether he is eligible given his very complicated legal situation here all along of course it's said that he is innocent

6:10 am
politicians are pushing for speedy returns because of the economic burden on the country but the united nations says we turn our premature it refuses to organize them because it believes conditions are not right syria is still not safe and assurances need to be put in place many refugees fled persecution and continued to be considered a security risk by the syrian government. there are refugees who don't want to return because they don't feel safe there waiting for circumstances to change they want international guarantees among them refugees from the syrian town of qusayr at least forty thousand of them are in lebanon and tens of thousands of others are displaced across syria has not just been totally destroyed there was mass displacement among the muslims who make up the bulk of the opposition. is from that town he says he joined the calls for democracy but now. took up arms that
6:11 am
however is enough to be called a terrorist by the syrian government. as. we fled our homes because of the regime and now they want us to return home to the regime how can we if our towns are destroyed and we face security risks is just one of the many areas where the regime is making demographic changes. those who come from areas like qusayr which formed the backbone of the uprising cannot make this journey back they say they are unwelcome and their safety and security are at risk there is still little reconciliation and peace in the new syria that there are still northeastern lebanon. shops have been burned and looted in haiti's capital as anger rises over the government's attempt to raise fuel prices. riot police fired warning shots at protesters to strip supermarkets that had been left charred by two days of violent protests at least three people have died since

6:13 am
all happy for them despite the fact we did not go further we will always support them. my main emotion is pride and i am proud of our country and our team i need the. join now in the studio by will it give again russia analyst at the global information provider i. much for speaking to us so if you're hearing that russia's world cup hopes might be over but they managed to really defy expectations by coming as far as they did to reach the quarter finals how does something like this impact sentiment inside the country that sense of national pride well obviously i think as as you mentioned or is it what was mentioned in the report the russian team came as an underdog and managed to kick out spain that was a big deal was talking to my friends and colleagues in russia who were absolutely ecstatic about this so it's a very special feeling and i think these sports events are designed especially for these feel good factor and i think it's only natural to expect.
6:14 am
as the lady mentioned it's just the feeling that everyone came together at the same time but i have to say that at the same time interesting. ever almost cheering and sharing this this positive sentiment in russia in forty five cities the beginning of the tournament protests have been held and this these are this is the news that escaped the headlines that it was about to domestic economic changes and reforms that the government unveiled as the world cup started literally. some would argue that the timing was quite curious that somewhere arguing that especially the protesters were arguing that things like raising pension age racing the very unpopular moves they were buried probably by the good news of the world
6:15 am
cup launch right so there's that what about internationally on the global stage how has russia benefited from hosting this tournament. it's a one month long event. for the sport that is loved across the world and i think in terms of p.r. yes there will be her periods of so positive news coming from russia but i have to emphasize that i don't not expect any lasting positive. p.r. for the country for a month russia wasn't featuring in the headlines in negative light but will i'm not sure that this will continue for the rest of the year but then president putin does have a meeting coming up with with his u.s. counterpart donald trump so it'll be interesting to see how that unfolds. all eyes
6:16 am
are on the event on the meeting from the russian perspective be very critical to understand how the u.s. president views furder. relationship between six countries because at the moment one of the most difficult issues that russia is facing and russian economy is facing the issue of the sanctions but there will be any material impact on this axis from downside i have to say that whatever has been. turned into law by the u.s. congress is unlikely to be removed however from the russian perspective it is important to show that there is a movement of force because of at the moment western russia relationship and especially u.s. russia relationship is pretty much at the bottom. and. since the collapse of the soviet union so from the russian perspective. on the back of the championship
6:17 am
one hundred back of this positive feeling perhaps there will be an attempt and hope that the meeting with trauma will go well and there will be some positive signals coming out from this meeting a great deal to watch for thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with this will it give all again. watch was to have for you on the program now is donald trump has to announce his latest u.s. supreme court nominee we look at who's in the running and what it could mean for the country. also we meet the people who travel from thousands of kilometers away to run with the bulls in pamplona. and the tour de france has its second leader in as many days we'll have the details a bit later in sport. the a. hello there the hot weather is easing for many of us in western europe it's been dry and hot for many of us here
6:18 am
over the last month really and now things are finally beginning to change for some of us at least we've got a bit more cloud is just drifting its way southwards and as it does so there's a little area of low pressure that's developing within that and that's what's dragging down our temperatures so that whole thing is working its way southwards and the temperatures are dropping look at berlin only twenty degrees of the maximum there on choose day and force in london in paris will be no higher than around twenty four they'll still be a good deal of sunshine around here though plenty of thunderstorms across the eastern half of europe stretching all the way down towards the southeast corner and still a fair amount of cloud in a few outbreaks of rain there around moscow across the other side of the mediterranean very very hot now in cairo all the way up at thirty eight degrees no change for us as we head through monday or tuesday for the west a little bit of change force in our jails where our temperatures will be rising from around twenty eight to probably around thirty two as we head through the next day of say a bit further towards the south and there's plenty of showers here as you'd expect at this time of year and they will rumbling their way towards the west they are

6:22 am
gangster like there the world is a gangster because there was a unanimous decision of the un security council about what needs to be achieved instead he described the meeting as productive making good progress he said north korea agreed to destroy test sites in the next round of talks to sit down for later this month. north korea reaffirmed its commitment to complete denuclearization we had detailed and subs and discussions about the next steps towards a fully verified and complete denuclearization. but north korea painted a very different picture describing the talks as regrettable and relations were entering a dangerous phase in a statement released by the foreign ministry it said the fastest shortcut to denuclearization is to leave deep rooted distrust in the past and prioritize building trust via new solutions and phase by phase actions criticism aside north
6:23 am
korea did declare we still cherish a good faith in president trump on the second leg of his asian two of my compo reassured the japanese and south korean foreign ministers the talks was still on track despite the best the u.s. allies presented a united front declaring once again the commitment to complete denuclearization in the korean peninsula we have reaffirmed that international community will continue to fully implement relevant un security council resolutions in order to materialise cv id despite describing these talks as making progress my palm pilot says progress the line is not enough to justify lifting the un sanctions on north korea that were made in place and to pyongyang abandons its nuclear program that sentiment to shit by the japanese and the south korean foreign minister as for a timeframe on how to achieve that neither side is set
6:24 am
a date sarah clock al-jazeera so. donald trump is due to announce his latest u.s. supreme court nominee on monday it will be the second time he's been able to choose a justice in just eighteen months and it's significant because his decision will probably swing the court firmly towards the right as now a general consensus about who's in the top three first up is brett kavanaugh he began his career as a clerk to retired justice kennedy fifty three year old recently voiced disagreement with a court decision that allowed a teenage and also ised immigrant to get an abortion and then raymond keith ledger fifty one year old six appeals court judge he is seen as supporting originalism that's interpret seeing the constitution along the lines of its meaning at the time of the next mint amy coney barrett is viewed as the outsider she is a former professor of law and member of the people of praise religion and a favorite among social conservatives. so let's speak to john hendren who's
6:25 am
following this story for us from washington john who's the likely favorite. well mary and this is the reality t.v. presidency donald trump has put these names out there on purpose so we can all speculate on them and then he's going to pluck one of them from those that list of names on national television on international television during prime time here in the u.s. and you're right kavanagh is widely viewed as the favorite people are actually betting on him on the internet and it was vegas but there were a few mitigating factors he worked as chief he worked for president george w. bush as staff secretary when he was president and he also worked for kenneth starr who prosecuted president bill clinton both of those things are going to create a long paper trail and an opportunity for the democrats to really question him a great length what they would love to do is to delay and block this nomination until the november midterm elections when they would hope to be in control of
6:26 am
congress that something the republicans don't want to that will be one of the things they'll consider when looking at kavanagh catholic who is considered safe and likable but according to people who have talked to the president dole and personality matters so much with this president you mentioned that barrett was was a favorite among social conservatives that's absolutely true she has written extensively on abortion in academic writing that's also going to give democrats a lot to talk about that's a very major issue for them she also went to notre dame that makes her the only non ivy league graduate of the group and even though trump himself is an ivy leaguer he apparently likes that but he's also been apparently expressing interest in a fourth candidate and that is a guy named thomas hart a man who was the runner up last time around when neil gorsuch was eventually chosen trump likes his personal story was the first member of his family to graduate from college he drove a taxi for a while and he was also recommended by trump's sister who just happens to be
6:27 am
a federal judge in philadelphia he has very little record on abortion and affirmative action and that is what republicans will seize on when they look at him and john how difficult is it going to be for president trying to push through his nominee. marian there is no margin for error the u.s. senate has a fifty one to forty nine split between republicans and democrats democrats would love to pull over one or two republicans and they like to block this nomination hold it until november so that they would be in control of that decision they haven't had a very good record of doing that in the past there are a couple of conservative democrats who are in what are essentially republican states who are going to be in a really tough position when it comes to this vote but democrats remember that president obama nominated a guy named merrick garland almost a year before his term was over and the republicans who control the senator said no we're not even to consider him and they waited until trump became president and
6:28 am
then they got neil gorsuch. this is going to be key to trump's evangelical support that's why many of them held their noses and voted for a guy who wasn't a lot like them but all of these judges are profoundly conservative they're young they are likely to dominate the court for years and it is likely to tilt to the right in that the one big ruling that is very likely to be overturned under all of these judges is abortion all right thank you very much john hendren and washington when our conditions inside venezuela's jails on atory asleep bad with serious of a crowding and frequent violence but for some prisoners the lack of space means they kept locked up for years in police stations which all modahl people for more than forty eight hours john heilemann has mall. five men to a police station holding cell but smaller than a car. with no excited yard no beds they stuck in here twenty people
6:29 am
seven snatching sleepin blankets slung up his makeshift hammocks the bottles waged in the bars a few urine ating. but at least it's for a maximum of forty eight hours that's what venezuela north says anyway reality some of actually been here for years one and a half in this man's case he's desperate to get to a real jail. there are moments when there are lots of prisoners they bring them and bring them but there aren't transfers to anywhere else and that's really difficult because the holding cells sometimes are a little and you collapse venezuela's jails are completely overcrowded that means the prisoners across the country are stuck in police station lock ups while they wait for space to be freed up for many family visits are their only hope of food and your investigators claim that several detainees have died of hunger. venezuelan enzio window to freedom monitored almost two hundred temporary detention centers
6:30 am
last year they found that nearly two thirds were cleaned so rubbish and human waste holed up and this is was right more than sixty percent didn't have separate cells for women and that lock ups were two hundred fifty percent of their maximum capacity the crush of people has led to many police forces resorting to a radical and illegal solution keeping prisoners simply struck some patrol cars when they run out of cells. meanwhile the wheels of the venezuelan justice system turn slowly to speed them up or at least make conditions will bearable you have to pay. the joseba to sue and the whole penitentiary system is the big mafia that produces a lot of money out of them through and taking you to the tribunal to continue judicial process or getting the transport to get you anywhere. they can charge you to eat for the officer to take the food you drill it brings from the door of the
