7:05 am
haven't been able to fulfill on their mission in. keeping the peace there hasn't really been a peace to keep since the end of the war in 2000 to 2003 there's been an ongoing conflict this simmering conflict. led of course by a multitude of militia groups but also backed by by congo's neighbors so there is a real question and no congolese are mobilizing to call for the u.n. to to retreat however once that happens. responsibility is certainly going to be on the congolese state and that's where the ultimate responsibility lies irrespective of the performance of the united nations and we must be very critical of united nations in its inability to bring about some. security for the for the people in the region. in lebanon supporters of the shia movements have been facing
7:06 am
with antigovernment protesters for the 2nd night running hezbollah and amal oppose protesters demands for a complete overhaul of lebanon's power sharing system the posts are divided on a city tarion basis but some of the worst violence since protests against the ruling elites began last month or scenes like these are put in lebanon's military and security forces into an increasingly difficult position they've gone to great lengths to protect anti-government demonstrators for more than a month now confronting the powerful iran backed hezbollah could ruin the neutral stance the military 6 to maintain and split its ranks the army is one of the few state institutions that enjoy white public supports it's seen as a unifying force in a deeply divided country well earlier my colleague for the better spoke to rami horry in boston he's a journalism professor at the american university of beirut she asked him what message hezbollah and its allies are trying to send by putting their supporters out
7:07 am
on to the streets. so one theory is that there's starr this show of force just before the negotiations begin to create a new government to maintain a certain role for them in the new government that striated another syria is that no this is not linked to any kind of political resolution this is the hezbollah and m l and some other people allied with them saying we're fed up with this kind of citizen protest. and the issues that is causing and we're going to send these people back home as as happened in the past or a little bit of rough handling by the. the young men of hezbollah and their mother and others has sent protesters back home so we'll see which way it goes yeah and the lebanese army meanwhile finds itself in the middle of this can it stay neutral if the situation way to degenerate if nothing's going to get worse is there a risk that the lebanese army could be facing off with has been
7:08 am
a spa full forces and no there's no risk of an army has been the face off that's never going to happen the risk is that the army would get pulled into the tensions on the street and some of the violence and then perhaps the army would would implode from within and would collapse and some share members some christian members some sunni members some group members would all leave the army and go from there on the mission this is what happened during the civil war when the army collapse but i don't think that's going to happen. on kong's chief executive has admitted that voices have delivered a rebuke to the territories leaders kerry landsman speaking of to prove democracy candidates won a landslide victory in district council elections she also said that the poll which is normally focused on very local issues was very different this time round but we will wear of the large number of voters coming out to cast
