it's all electronic but there are other targets that are targets of opportunity where the pilot sees something and may or may not see permission before bombing in this case the bus deemed to be in the clear and there was nothing else around it that it could have been mistaken for. so i'm afraid that. you know this sort of thing has happened so many times before and for them to admit a mistake now seems a bit tricky there wasn't even a genuine apology to the families of the victims and to the yemeni people so i'm afraid it's politically motivated. situation and the libyan capital tripoli a passerby to terracing has rival on point battle for control at least forty people have been killed in several days of fighting and actually generals calling for an

7:23 pm
a marked inequality in society so much poverty in the countryside and a group of privileged politicians with everything. there's another big shift for the first time they'll be almost as many female lawmakers as men in part the result of the quota system where there could be a different vision with women involved in the country's direction not just to highlight the problems we have like femicide domestic and social violence but to do things differently with sensitivity honesty dedication those values are more prevalent in women but there's a challenge ahead say female lawmakers getting more access to big policy decisions rather than just being relegated to so-called women's issues we can't yet see how this is all going to play out but congress is definitely opening with a real change of tone in particular the cuts to pay and perks of grab the attention but analysts say what's going to really make
7:24 pm
a difference is better oversight to how lawmakers are spending public money not just blanket cuts up until now there's been a real lack of checks and balances what a media change that should make politicians more willing to play the transparency game is reelection introduced for the first time i expect and i hope that this incentive structure will really focus on politicians to go more to their grassroots result in a virtuous circle of going more to the constituency and really tried to to get good results source source turned the boat this three years for the new rule makers to prove all know that this time around they're prepared to put the country before themselves john home and. mexico city. let's get more now on one of our top stories the u.s. isn't to cut off hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to pakistan. as a political analyst specializing impacts on the f.s.a. joins us now live from islamabad good to have you with us is the u.s.
7:25 pm
justified in this move. i don't think pakistan is happy with this move and obviously this is not an assistance this was a reimbursement of. the fund that pakistani forces incurred while operating against militants in haiti has close to a foreign border so the agreement was there on lady the americans had stopped five hundred million dollars of it and they had three hundred million dollars released to certification by the secretary of defense that pakistan has done enough so pakistan position was that this money we have already spent and you need to give us back by diffusing to do so americans have made it very clear to pakistan that it is not in their product at least and they are continuing with the state policy to deal with pakistan and obviously this is us this is a this is something that is not going to be you know appreciated in pakistani policymakers especially when we have a new government which is fighting to create
7:26 pm
a pop public image of being defined. gummi show and not a stooge of any outsider ok show me my father's life if i could just jump in because the u.s. decision is of course that pakistan hasn't done and nuff and therefore doesn't deserve to keep getting military aid from the us. i think pakistani policy because understand that drum part ministration ball pakistan to reunify they stand for them and pakistan says we can do that you have been there for seventeen years it is your failures don't try to skip goodbye he said i think this is the basic reason of recent a standing of mistrust americans think that pakistan can win the war for them enough by cracking down on militants control over and by closing down whatever sentries they accuse islamabad of sponsoring in the tribal areas this is value you
7:27 pm
have in pakistan diffused to accept the blame and by this time to turn this to washington saying that it is your failure not our failure we want to have good relationship with you but we cannot be not quite example you it is beyond beyond our capacity and you have to fix your problems in afghanistan but there's nothing new about these accusations is there i mean this isn't just the trumpet ministrations saying that pakistan isn't cracking down on groups fighting in pakistan indeed for a long time now it's been widely held is a widely held belief that pakistan is funding and helping such groups of bomb administration increase drain strikes and even went after osama bin laden without telling the pakistani intelligence services or government about. no the fact is that there were allegations and pakistan accepted part of it and that's why a pakistan military venti into the most rugged tribal areas of the tribe nor not
7:28 pm
federally administrated tribal areas that is very depressed pakistani military vendetta and to clear the areas of the militants it you know it came at a huge cost tens of thousands of pakistani died hundreds of soldiers died officers died but the problem is that it is not about pakistan not acting to us or you know information it is us which is asking pakistan to deliver a victory in afghanistan by you know advising taliban in their control to come to the negotiating negotiating table and by cracking down across the board on the western border with afghanistan i think the messaging from trump administration has been extremely negative for pakistan for example this reversal
7:29 pm
of reimbursement of funds coming just three days before secretary of state might bump us to get islamabad it is indication of relationship between pakistan and us going from worst from bad to worse it is going to have very it worse the action on both countries and especially pakistani policymakers will not look at it any you know with any help pull any sympathetic i own the other side of course i mean it could be an opportunity couldn't it to get relations back on track do you think there is going to be any room for negotiation showing this visit. the issue is why does america want from pakistan and can back you son deliver on that that is a key for pakistan has made it clear to us that it cannot be in the wording of what is done for them they have to do it bill is coalition force there is a hue i mean one trillion dollars americans have spent there the government of afghanistan is fighting in is this limited has gone up by international
7:30 pm
organization on the pakistani say against pakistan can deliver in the sense that pakistan if you know act against all those militants americans think that they are operating from their side but for that they need to have a trust level at least working on the first of january this year american president made a very you know you know very regrettable comment about pakistan that pakistani government has accusing pakistan of playing with lies and deceit with washington that intel and from david ongoing relationship is deteriorating and one doesn't see and only we see that pakistanis knows shifting its. profit is toward china russia and of course. thanks for joining us. moscow is celebrating the ninetieth anniversary of one of its most beloved
