concern that his burial is going to just escalate the tensions protestants are saying they're going to march around the sifi of. tributes here in golmaal are there was also part test this morning protestors were trying to get to another u.n. base but then they were repulsed by police it's important to note that the president. kennedy on monday authorized a joint military offensive a joint military operation by the u.n. and government soldiers against a.d.f. rebels but this doesn't seem to really appease the protesters there saying look the u.n. has been here for so long they're not protecting us we don't need them they're also saying that government. the government soldiers really are not organized that's why this seeing this rebels even with an offensive going on coming back to the villages and killing them so brutally. elsewhere in the democratic republic of congo at

a request to congress to authorize the army to safeguard keep public service installations without calling for a state of emergency. much of our basic infrastructure like electricity drinking water and hospitals have been attacked but there's a 2nd benefit it will free many police officers so they can concentrate on being on the street in our parks in the security or citizens. giving chile's history of brutality under military dictatorship bringing out the army which is trained for combat is likely to generate more control to see depending on the scope of their mandate but the very fact that such a move is even being contemplated is evidence of the incapacity of the police to step to really address the challenges cheney is facing and as things stand now it can be argued that the police is contributing to rather than reducing the environment of violence here you see in human al-jazeera. there been more

as well and they say that this is the attempted coup against him now although there are a number of supporters this is a divided country when it comes to. the latest polls suggest that over half the country would like him to leave office however he says he's not going anywhere and this crowd. local district resistance committees played a central role in sudan's revolution they helped organize the protests that toppled the longtime president omar and bashir and since a transitional government was formed in august the committees have taken a new role that's not being welcomed by everyone happy morgan has more from khartoum for several weeks i am hamad and his friends have been working to renovate huts me a primary school in the north of how to not because the construction workers and painters they are part of the huts me resistance committee and for the past few months they've been improving services in the districts they've grown up and.
as part of the district resistance committee we've been focused on making sure that the district has proper services the government can handle all the tasks it has inherited from the former regime and we are responsible for rehabilitating the school and we did it. but that's mere existence comics he is one of dozens created in january soon after the start of sudan's revolution they were formed across the country to counter what were known as popular districts comments he's made up of those loyal to the government the resistance committees organized anti-government protests to demand the country's president on what it was years that down he was ousted by the military in april after protesters launched a sit in at army headquarters when that was broken up 2 months later with the killing of more than 100 people an internet blackout was imposed to try to prevent protesters reorganizing but that didn't stop them the military was forced into negotiations and in august
a transitional government was formed but the role of district resistance from within have changed with a change in the governance structure in sudan using the slogan kind of me which means we will build the common theme in future but i protest reminding your government of what needs to be done during the transitional period for the coming season mostly focus on service delivery in their districts which is the main reason for most of the criticism they have received some believe that the committees are taking a role bigger than they should the national when the resistance committees end up working on building roads and schools and sorting out district problems what does that leave to the government what is the government doing others have a different view. and i think the resistance committees should continue doing what they do because the government can be there grassroots level so the committees can act as a link between districts and neighborhoods and the government. the sudanese professionals association the main body representing the protest movement has accused some committees of being funded by groups from outside sudan to influence the country's
transitional government it has issued a decree to organize the committees to make them more formal. the resistance committees are effectively the backbone of saddam's revolution the reason why they're getting so much criticism now is because there are no local government districts because they were all controlled by the former regime which has been ousted so there's a vacuum that has been created that the committees are filling and the solution is giving them a formal status with a defined role. and his friends say they're working to support the government and not on behalf of it and if it fails to deliver the demands of the revolution they're ready to go back on the streets and protest again morgan al-jazeera had its own. in malta 2 government ministers have resigned in connection with a case involving the murder of a journalist prime minister's chief of staff also creators police searched his home reporter daphne carolina galatea was killed by a car bomb 2 years ago while investigating corruption involving politicians as well

a sense of siege electoral reform is officially no longer of discussion but in any case government m.p.'s have nobody to debate with in the chamber. position parties are absent they boycotted parliament this is their right but there's right of limits if they try to disrupt parliamentary business the government will have to respond but done the way to have 3 in 3 lections is if the opposition comes back here to debate it. this is what the opposition looks like empty seats instead of m.p.'s for the government of course it's business as usual but with no opposition there'll be no debate no compromise and therefore at least in this chamber no way out. of these political crisis powers. outside in the cold the opposition admit there's another barrier to a break through a skeptical electorate one of the main reasons is that there is a huge segment in georgia societies it is it is everywhere this current government
is they are liars and they are incompetent but they are afraid of the return of the previous government. because because they failed to secure. the exit time and they don't want the same feeling to come back the opposition isn't just comprised of the full big government it's a broad coalition they must now find their own consensus on the street robin 1st you will get al-jazeera to believe. they call it the chinese language oscars taiwan's golden horse film festival has grown into a fixture for the movie industry in asia but china's now banned its filmmakers from taking part andrew thomas reports. 2 film festivals in 2 cities say a lot about one china in taipei the golden horse festival has for years been the showcase for a chinese language film with entries from mainland china as well as taiwan but this
