7:02 pm
that has been the epicenter of the protests since october 1st however last week things became very chaotic in the capital as the protests spread out throughout the capital dozens of roads were closed schools were out of session many government offices were closed the courts were closed so this is clearly part of an attempt to avoid a repeat of that we're hearing of a clash between security forces and protesters on a square that leads to tahrir square we're hearing that people have been killed there's been a heavy use of tear gas we're also hearing that security forces are being attacked by protesters who are hurling molotov cocktails from a nearby building and have lit a nearby building on fire right now it appears several 100 protesters have been hemmed in by security forces we just came from the office of the military spokesman he says that we have no intention of dispersing the protest the peaceful protest he
7:03 pm
says entire career square but what we are going to do is arrest anyone and severely punish them for blocking roads or committing any criminal attacks the internet was on for a short time today foley it has now been blocked again and when i asked the military spokesman about that he says that we have a quote been forced to cut the internet because it's being used to quote incite violence earlier the prime minister natascha a statement saying that the country must return to normal how of is proposal spin received by the protesters. i think until the protesters hear that prime minister either love them ahead he is resigning until they hear that there is some wholesale change in the government from what they're telling us they're not going to be satisfied and they're not going to leave the streets prime minister my head he did say that in response to protesters call call for quote wholesale or partial reforms to government ministries that he was going to introduce an
7:04 pm
amendment that would eliminate a quota system hire younger people and quote create more transparency but you know people are still quite upset they want the political parties as well as the parliament to be dissolved they believe that there are a lot of people having their interested interests preserved and protected meanwhile they say average iraqi lives remain pretty difficult. but he did say that the knowledge is that political parties of quote made some mistakes but he says that they're instrumental to the democratic process in iraq he did say that an electoral law will be introduced a draft will be introduced in the coming days we had heard that the parliament was going to see that draft about law this week that never happen they did meet today and we're told they went over the draft of a law that would impact pensions it would decrease the recipient age to 60 and
7:05 pm
increase the minimum payments and that is one of the demands that protesters have but certainly it is not a central one thank you for that natasha go name one for us in baghdad. and other world news he was once hailed by barack obama as the most popular politician on earth and now brazil's former president delivers silva is again energizing the country's leftist opposition after supreme court ruling released him from jail but conservative if a lula symbolize a culture of corruption today somebody for some zapato ha. he supporters had demanded his freedom since he was detained last year. or simply left prison on friday surrounded by hundreds of his supporters. you have no idea of the significance for me to be here we view i who my whole life talk to the brazilian people never thought that today i could be here talking with men and women who during the past 580 days were here saying good morning good afternoon
7:06 pm
yelling good night no matter if it were raining if it was 40 degrees or 0 degrees on thursday the supreme court voted to reinterpret a law that meant anyone convicted of a crime was jailed after losing their 1st appeal the ruling allows lula and more than 4000 others to exhaust all their appeal options before being locked up. new law was convicted last year of taking bribes in exchange for public works contracts it was part of the so-called carwash corruption investigation that saw dozens of politicians and business men detained for their role in cases that involved bribes and kickbacks from brazil's private and state companies you love the fever left office saying that he's ready to fight against what he says is the persecution of the left under the presidency of j.d. it's not clear yet how he's going to do that he wouldn't be able to run for office
7:07 pm
right now because of what is known here as the clean slate law that bans politicians who have been convicted for corruption. has always denied those charges saying he was a victim of political persecution the judge involved was mortal who is now j. towards an address minister of justice his impartiality has been questioned by us workers party. the car wash corruption operation is the largest in brazil's history and polarized society thousands demanded justice on the streets because the investigation discredited brazil's political class. discontent paved the way for the election of. president and that's why not everyone of brazil celebrated release on friday. i really disappointed because the game is notorious and the people that can make equally know he's
7:08 pm
a player in the know and the making of serious damage for the country and there is right now. movement and congressman's future in this situation. the provision in the 2nd moves but in the meantime he's free and instead of being weakened by his time in prison he seems determined to reclaim his place in brazilian politics once again and i've not too teresa who joins us live from sao there not a little company just south of sabato to 8 to resale of not far from where luna is expected to be speaking to members of his workers party understand for the 1st time since he came out of jail they feel vindicated i imagine what message can we expect him to deliver. that's correct we're here in some but i'm out of a company this is a little of our serious hometown this is the place where he gave that last speech
7:09 pm
before being taken to prison where people here wanted to prevent the police from taking him and that's why there are hundreds of people here waiting for him to speech he arrived here just about an hour ago and he's currently inside the steelworkers union meeting with members of the workers' party among others the big question is what's next for you when you talk to people here they say that they want to hold out to run for the presidency in 2022 they want him to be the leader of the opposition and they believe that he is the man that can defeat president for now that's what people here are telling us the big question is whether he will be able to he has several legal cases against him and that's why lawyer wants those cases canceled the supreme court is expected to rule about that time that's when we're going to know whether you will have a chance of being a candidate once again thank you very much for that for a soft of sao paolo. india's top court has ruled a disputed religious sites be given to hindus for construction of

7:12 pm
with. this reply and. the court acknowledged the site as important to both religions but it's a setback for muslims some of them would have preferred the high court order of 2010 which granted 2 thirds of the land to the hindus and one 3rd of it to muslims management should have been given to the both they should allow protests in the mosque that the government has given land for the mosque elsewhere and that's wrong . the state government has deployed its forces a nude head to ensure security but the situation remains tense this is been an emotional issue for many hindus and muslims the government of many in the movie has called on both sides to exercise restraint but some minority groups in this country say that they are being marginalized and discriminated against for millions of muslims this decision is likely to reinforce that concern after
