9:05 pm
agnus child represents the pro-democracy group demo sisto she says hong kong police are abusing their power and not protecting the lives and safety of citizens. i meet as some behavior of the protesters i am not proportional but i hope that people won't be only you know focusing on what the police have so not what the protesters have done but the problem behind that the reasons behind that why are they such a large anger and discontents to what the government's is because of you know the police abusing power and its use firelands was purchased as they should go and again today and that and that makes people you know why police are so on call it from the boat and even people say c.n.n. i am not being protected by the police but you know in the end the other way our lives are being threatened by. in other news
9:06 pm
a court in the hague has ordered the netherlands to repatriate 56 children of women who joined by soul in syria from on this let's cross to bear in our european you center in london hi barbara. hello there folly yes 23 dutch women asked the court to allow their families to return due to deplorable living conditions in camps in northern syria a judge found that only the children must be sent back to the netherlands barnsley has more now from the hague figuring out what to do with women and children associated with the enemy isn't a new problem for a country but when you bring the ice still into the equation it becomes hugely controversial. at issue in the netherlands what to do about $23.00 dutch women and their $56.00 children under the age of 12 many born in the vast desperate el whole camp in northern syria their families have demanded they be brought home the government had said no thanks excel than i was even the kindler and for order in
9:07 pm
his ruling the judge demanded that the dutch state had a juicy to show it was trying to repatriate the children and their mothers to if the kurdish come command has said so and all within 14 days so if the kurdish are sort of 40 saying we're only willing to give back the children if the dutch authorities also take back the women then that's the way it has to be and that has been the kurdish position until now they won't give any children unless the mothers are also brought back among the women there is child who is a little girl was as innocent looking as anyone but a family say she suffered mental health issues growing up was targeted by eisel supporters in the netherlands and persuaded to go to syria to be a bride so a fighter and this is child here now she lost a foot in the explosion but she doesn't have children and so she's stuck her family a devastated we had her passport when we saw that she was planning for a 2nd syria for couples what
9:08 pm
a way for us of course every family did that dutch government don't get their responsibility again they said yes there are dare not our problems and it's very hard to to hear that so what might the dutch government do now putting the onus on the dutch authorities to go into northern syria to get these women and children out is one thing whether the dutch are actually prepared to do it themselves is something else again because they've always said it's too dangerous but the americans have in some a sense of that they're prepared to go to al hole to perform the task for them very likely then that the dutch will be trying to outsource their own problem the big problem in any number of european countries is public opinion which overwhelmingly insists anyone who went to syria within the last 5 years knew exactly what they were doing and should lose their rights assuming they are brought home the next question will be what to do with them lawrence lee al-jazeera the hague. spain's the socialist party says it will act faster to form a government after winning the most seats in sunday's parliamentary election either
9:09 pm
better or sanchez had hoped that the vote which was the 2nd this year would break the country's political deadlock but with the far right vox party more than doubling its support the country appears more fragmented than ever before on a whole has more from madrid. this is the final resting place of francisco franco the spanish generals memory well tended despite his often brutal one party rule that ended with his death more than 4 decades ago he's been here in a private family tomb for less than a month franco's final journey began in october when the socialist government ordered the former fascist leaders remains removed from a grand more the live in madrid famous family of the forward it's easy of course to see parallels here the memory of franco dissolved in the view of many and then less than a month later the country's 1st far right party in parliament since his death more
9:10 pm
than doubles its count becoming spain's 3rd largest political force but the reality owes more to post economic crises disaffection with mainstream politics and the threat posed to spanish unity by catalonia his drive for independence it's a still early to say which sort of fire right we have here because. initially it was a splinter group from the people aspire to its leaders came from the people's party it was more of a heart of rights than a far right party but now we're beginning to see some elements within a vox that perhaps have some some nostalgie form of franco symes sunday's election result will only deepen the concerns of the far right with socialist leader pedro sanchez force now to consider a friend john alliance of the left that might even include cattle and pro independence parties. it's an ugly prospect across large swathes of sprain
9:11 pm
particularly as they watch separatist protesters blocking roads and even the border with france in the north west on monday and as disaffection with politics increases amid signs of economic slowdown in spain so the list of grievances will likely grow . as well help us by stopping benefits for people who don't deserve it i don't think it's normal that people come from abroad to live on state benefits i myself have worked abroad but i didn't go there to commit crimes and live on benefits it's not the box party was created in the image of franco and what he stood for but in a country with a living memory of fascist rule the party's popularity could yet unleash sinister forces killed a whole al-jazeera madrid the u.k.'s breck's a party leader nigel farage says he will not challenge the governing conservative party seats in next month's general election in a significant boost for prime minister boris johnson for i've said that is
9:12 pm
a was to stop and he breaks apart he's winning the vote he says the move would hopefully prevent another either referendum and make a hung parliament much less likely or a strong sign as welcome to the session saying that he's glad there is recognition that only his party can get breck's it done. i have got no great love for the conservative party addle but i can see right now that by giving boris half a chance by keeping him on it and holding him to account by getting people in and by stopping the fanatics illiberal democrats who signed up for everything with the united states of europe european army you know you better i mean they even want to revive the result of the referendum no i think our action this announcement today prevents a 2nd referendum from happening and that to me i think right now is the single most important thing in our. lives our correspondent paul brennan joins us live now
9:13 pm
so paul breaks apart his just not going to oppose the conservative party in any seat for any seat so what would the impact be of nigel farage his decision on this election it's an extraordinary u. turn by the leader of the brics a party think about it on november the 1st when he launched his party's campaign he said that boris johnson deal boris johnson's bracks a deal simply was not bracks it and that was his justification for threatening to put candidates up in it all $600.00 plus seats all across the country now he says he thought about it overnight and he says that the risk of a hung parliament of dividing the progress of votes in particular down in the south west of england for example and allowing a liberal democrat candidate to come through and actually win some of those seats was too big a risk and he decided that it would be better from a progressive point of view to take a step back and not compete against the conservatives that said he will put party candidates up against labor candidates and the arithmetic will be interesting
9:14 pm
because you know you could argue that that would equally split the anti labor vote and allow labor to retain some of those marginal seats that they desperately need to retain if they're to challenge the conservative government but i guess you know he always must have known that the 2nd issue. at some breaks at party candidates it could damage the conservatives and potentially damage breck's it so that's no surprise why do you think he has changed his mind he's been paid he's painted it in his address up there in hartlepool today as a kind of magnanimous gesture he was thinking of the country rather than his own personal ambitions or exam party ambitions but the reality is he's been under intense pressure politically for a couple of weeks now because of internal disquiet about the strategy of putting himself up against the conservatives even his own big backer as such as our own banks the germans tycoon had said look he's backing the conservatives instead of the brics a party and this is a man who has been very staunchly behind nigel farage up till now all the way
9:15 pm
through the referendum so to lose a backer like banks it is a major blow to faraj and must have really made him want to take stock i think the reality is he was fighting inevitability really and this is to some extent a face saving exercise but it means that he will continue to be a player throughout this whole general election campaign and it means that it just makes the arithmetic even more fascinating as we approach to december 12th and you will of course be following the election campaign for some show we will speak again paul brennan for the moment thank you now greece's prime minister is hailing a new era of economic relations with china as he hosts president paying on a 3 day visit the chinese leader was greeted by kitty pakis and given an official welcome in the capital athens president he also toward that pale sport which is largely controlled by china's state owned shipping company costco it comes as beijing approved the $680000000.00 plan to expand the port. and that is it for me
9:16 pm
and the team here in london let's go back to foley in doha barbara thank you very much for that plenty more ahead on this al-jazeera news hour including controlling libya more on the next documents that names countries it says supports warlord honey for have to pass cambodian opposition leader camp is freed from house arrest and shows his camera ready. trouble in tearin we'll hear from the coach of juventus about why christiane or a model is so angry that's coming up in sports with the whole. first is facing political uncertainty following president evel more honest his resignation opposition protesters have been celebrating rod is quiet after weeks of demonstrations against his reelection in a disputed vote he says his removal is a cool lead speak to mariana sanchez in the past for as capital you're outside the
9:17 pm
presidential palace in the pas marianna and there's been some activity inside with the woman who is expected to become interim president speaking to the media. that's right fully well she's actually gone into the national assembly the presidential palace is closed and the area surrounding this presidential palace on the national assembly is has been sealed off by riot police and protesters opposition protesters whom i'm chained there barricades since looked over 20 election and just a few minutes ago. a woman called a yemeni an yes she has she has just arrived she will be sworn in as the interim president of bolivia she accepted this after the vice president resigned after the senator the president of the senate resigned and she was apparently the next in line she has accepted the charges 52 year old lawyer like i
9:18 pm
say and she has come in to this emergency meeting were other legislators are arriving but not too many it is an emergency meeting and it's it's mandatory so if whoever doesn't come will be penalized they need to have a quorum to be able to swear her in as interim president what. many politicians here have said is that's the main reason and the main objective of this new interim president is to call for new elections in another front in the meantime members of the opposition political politicians of the opposition are reinforcing the idea that in bolivia there was no couldn't talk. this is the most we categorically and clearly deny there was a coup d'etat in bolivia and there was no element that allows us to think that acute attack happened. logic is that and this is very important the clear and
9:19 pm
unequivocal will of the democratic opposition civic opposition and the bolivian citizenship is that a democratic government has to be built and that means strictly respecting the political constitution of the state. more than one of our former president morales what do we know about his web outs and what's going to happen to him will it will not alice has said that he is at a region of cultural lombok and that is of the area of the forest where he became a very powerful union leader with the coca farmers he is back there where he started and he has apparently been very active in twitter he's not going down easily he has been tweeting about his solidarity with the poor is really very true with the protesters his supporters and he has he has also tweeted about unrest order against him which has been denied by politicians here at the national
9:20 pm
assembly analysts say that in order to be prosecuted that can only be done here in parliament and so former president evo morales also reinforcing the idea that there was a coup de tat and that's why he resigned i mean to say that he has it taken he's taken a step back he's sitting back and waiting to see what she will do next according to what she sees on the streets of olivia if you will have protesters still supporting him and then think about what to do next thank you very much for that mariana sanchez lifeforce in la paz here now is al jazeera john home and in mexico city with more on the reaction from south american leaders to have a more honest his resignation. the latin american region really seems to have been divided between ideological lines as to its response to president morales resignation it seems on the pressure from the military in bolivia those on the left
9:21 pm
the president of cuba or venezuela nicaragua mexico itself have said that this is a coup. that there needs to be an emergency meeting of the organization of american states to decide what happens next in bolivia they said that they'd already given protection to 20 officials from president morales government and that they'd be willing to give asylum to the ex-president himself if he wants it on the right on the other hand brazil has said for the foreign minister that this isn't a case of a coup this is a case of electoral fraud very controversial the 1st round of elections in bolivia and the organization of american states said that they were serious irregularities in those elections colombia said that there should be a priest peaceful transition now and new elections come up with a new government so this is quite a big deal for america lots in america not just for bolivia because president raul
9:22 pm
is was the longest running leader in the region he's been in power for almost 14 years before he resigned so we get see if there's going to be a new sort of reshuffle realignment this was a pragmatic president although he was very much of the left he also went to some models you know gratian in brazil and ideologically those 2 were very separate so if things are going to change he's also one of the few allies that president maduro of venezuela had left in the region so even outside of the region of course this is made waves as well the united nations has called this. they've called as well for a plea peaceful transition for peaceful elections so has the organization of american states so at the moment i suppose within the country but also international people sort of trying to work out what happens next in bolivia and hoping that it happens without too much violence. at least 6 people have been
9:23 pm
killed and dozens more injured after 3 blasts hit a kurdish town in northeastern syria the 2 explosions in the town of commission which borders turkey were ha's by car bombs in a shopping street media says the 3rd exploded near a hotel and one of the figures credited with setting up the white helmets rescue group in syria has been found dead james the missouri was a founder of made a rescue which helped train the volunteers in what was officially call the syrian civil defense so white helmets have been credited with saving thousands of people in rebel held areas of syria during years of bombing in this country's civil war has been remembered as a true of mallets hereon by karen pierce the u.k. embassador to the united nations we've lost a real humanitarian the causes of death at the moment are unclear we will be looking very closely to see how the investigation goes i hope the turkish
9:24 pm
authorities will be able to investigate fairly and i'm sure will will want to give the many assistance they might require i do just want to take the opportunity to say on the record that the russian charges against him that came out of the foreign ministry that he was by categorically untrue. the u.s. is calling for early elections in iraq and an end to violence against protesters security forces again opened fire on demonstrators on monday killing at least 9 people at least 325 people have been killed across the country since protests began in october demanding political reform iraq's parliament has been discussing the issue on monday june has more from baghdad. tensions are currently rising in some of the areas that are close to tahrir square just in the past hour we've seen several ambulances that have come by here they're coming from the direction about 300 meters north of us that's the konami square that's an area that has seen repeated clashes between anti-government demonstrators and security forces in the
9:25 pm
past few days now we've seen many of these took took so they have dropped off injured anti-government demonstrators into one of this volunteer one of these volunteer medic tents close to us we've seen at least 9 in the past hour hour and a half and people are concerned that things might get worse as the day goes on now all of this coming amid the backdrop of a lot of diplomatic talk today you had the united states calling on their i don't think government to hold early elections you've also had statements from the united . there and off there was another amman this just passes by obviously again really signaling that there is more going on in the area north of us the united nations assistance mission for it off they put out a statement just yesterday in which they proposed a several proposals to try to end the crisis here and off one of them is to try to pass electoral reform another of them is to release protesters that have been detained since the protests began and also prosecute those responsible for violence
9:26 pm
in these protests areas and now one of the more interesting things with regard to today is the fact that i don't spar limit is currently meeting and although and many people here in baghdad had expected that the parliament might be taking up the issue of electoral reform or what we've heard since the parliament sort of meeting is in fact that the president's office has submitted or finalize a draft for electoral reform that they are then going to submit that to the cabinet and then the cabinet must approve that and then submit it on to parliament so there's really no indication what kind of timetable we're looking at when it comes to getting any kind of concrete steps for electoral reform or an electoral reform law and that's something that's. clearly frustrating demonstrators who say that they believe they keep hearing the same rhetoric again and again for officials here in iraq. jordan says it's committed to its peace treaty with israel despite ending a 25 year old 25 year deal that allowed israeli tourists and farmers vsa free access to to launch stretches of its territory that area runs along the border

9:28 pm
stephanie deca has more from beirut so the banks a good thing to remain close this is something that people had been ferrying was going to happen and you also had the governor of the central bank saying that they were doing everything to ensure the stabilisation of the lebanese pound in terms of its peg to the dollar that there weren't any capital controls in place but there are defacto capital controls in place when it comes to each individual bank putting limits. with jools there's pretty much it's pretty much impossible to transfer your money out of the country at the moment even talking to businessmen say that they can't access their funds to pay for goods and services that they want to import so we have a political stalemate we have an economical crisis just been talking to an economist who said that it's not a question of if there's going to be a collapse here it's a question of if they can stop it from happening the elites cannot agree on any names any formation of an interim governing body that means there is no. economic
9:29 pm
reform being implemented so you have a you have a paralysis really of a country of the people there are growing more and more frustrated and just to recap some of the demands electricity for example this country wasn't a full 24 hour and it christy's a day since 1975 so these are some of the basic things that people say they want to be implemented by this government and they want a technocratic government to do that certainly the political elite seem to be very much entrenched and as as long as they remain bickering as to how this new. government is going to look these economic reforms not going to be implemented there is no trust in the politicians people will tell you these are incredibly uncertain times. sim ahead on al-jazeera how health workers in the democratic republic of congo are fighting mistrust to treat patients and the ship shape sanctuary from the 1st world war have become part of the scenery in a u.s.
