5:02 am
bloodiest days of violence since the anti-government protests erupted in early october it was just over a year ago that he was appointed prime minister as a consensus candidate between political blogs. throughout the streets on friday cheering singing even dancing optimism on full display oh shut up today the iraqi people are happy but we only consider this as a 1st step we demand the resignation of all lawmakers and we call on the judiciary to put them on trial immediately. the protesters making it clear that cosmetic changes will not suffice they are after a complete overhaul of the political system in iraq the mood here a dire square has turned celebrates worry but all around us there are stronger reminders of those who have lost their lives during these protests here you see people who are praying for the memories of anti-government demonstrators who were killed by security forces and college students told me he and his fellow protesters
5:03 am
are more encouraged than ever to keep coming out on to the streets and risk their lives if you're going to do what i demanded of that album isn't only a day just a cover he wants to topple the whole regime and it's been a corrupt system for the last 16 years a corrupt system that negatively impact society and politics the economy and it's even had a psychological impact on us all of a sudden not brought her whole family so they could all witness a historic moment together and you know message to shout out today we have to come and participate because this iraq is our iraq this country is our country and this pain is our pain the youth who have been demonstrating are like all our children they have to take their rights because corruption won't last forever. inspiring words that may help transcend the deep pain felt by so many in iraq these praying constantly not just for the dead but also the living. but that.
5:04 am
well the unrest in iraq has been ongoing for weeks protests began in the capital baghdad of a high unemployment and claims of corruption and spread across the country despite public support from key religious and political figures before about $65.00 people had died in clashes with security forces protests subsided when the prime minister released a plan including subsidies and housing for the poor but crowds returned to the streets angry with the government and what they say was iran's influence on the demba 3 the iranian consulate in kabul i was attacked and this week demonstrators set fire to the iranian consulate in that jeff sparking another explosion in violence the death toll from almost 2 months of anger now stands at over $401.00 area i spoke with the body a former iraqi ambassador to the united nations he explained what will happen when abdul nothing resigns and how it could shake up the iraqi parliament he was always a compromise and he has been retired for at that for about 10 years
5:05 am
but all of them after parties deadlocked on who should become one of the prime minister after the last elections so he was a compromise candidate he was not a part of our no strength of our limbs and so it was thought that political parties could control him he was the right man in the sense that he has been around since the fall. and he does have a certain technocratic ability but of course he is part and parcel of that. were rejected that said after only one year in office he certainly could not have been expected to you know wave a magic wand and make all the problems disappear yeah and this isn't the 1st time he's offered to resign so when is he likely to go and what happens next fison in terms of his government and who will succeed him. well the prime minister resigned
5:06 am

5:07 am
ayatollah ali al sistani condemn the use of force against the protesters and he also cold for a new government so let me ask you how much political influence does he have in terms of shaping any new political landscape well it has to be recalled that the current political system is wrong but you march the shape but which falls say we're chills result in the sectarian islam that the protesters are protesting against so there's no small amount of irony that the protesters are looking to him to be the vehicle to form a succulent civil state but he clearly has a tremendous amount of influence with the protesters and we're with we're with a shallow iraq. and he is wielding that protest now. 2 people have been killed in a knife attack in the heart of central london according to police the suspect 28 year old khan was also shot dead during the incident khan was known to authorities

chemicals were also reportedly found but he said students were using the campus as a weapons factory dozens were arrested as they tried to escape the campus following some of the most violent clashes yet after months of anti-government protests meanwhile the protests was held in support of a former british consulate employees who says he was tortured by the police in china simon chang was detained for 2 weeks in august when visiting the mainland and protesters are demanding that the british government investigate so a clock was at the rally. this but the people here to support the former british consulate worker simon ching ching says he was a time on a work trip to sions in mainland china was in beaten and tortured by chinese police . by notorious have rejected the accusation inside chain broke the law while in chains and these people want the case investigated by the british government and i think the investigations. by british government is that of hong kong government

5:39 am
well protest leader. welcomed developments but he's demanding for the change. we are actually really excited about this rule it was like finally coming we were expecting it months ago and now that it's happening this is the one thing that was all uniting us on october 21st we went into because this in the main aim was dismantling the national congress party and to us this is an end of an era just having this rule is a big deal now when you want to talk about the deep state and all that and the committee that they put together there is only one thing that's really scaring us is for them to quit because the president of the committee is going to be from. the presidential council that we have right now and half of it is army people so we're actually scared that one of the army people will be head of that committee because then everybody knows they used to be part of the n.c.p. so for us he's like that has to be the 1st step we we need one of these he believes to be the president and going forward we're expecting good things i mean this is
5:40 am
the start it's strange it's kind of the start of the end to is the start of what we all wanted which is get rid of the national congress party this dictatorship that will this for 30 years with all the bad things that came with it genocide or not but also it's now the split between now this people in the government and there is the prices on the ground and now this is the last thing that united us so now we have a moment of unity that's happening right now. now the irish border has been one of the main problems with sorting out a deal for the u.k. to leave the european union but northern ireland's traditionally divided communities have united against prime minister boris johnson's briggs that plan is now not a single political party in the province which supports his proposals honestly reports now from belfast belfast's the city never at peace with itself for decades divided the walls and fences separating the 2 communities remain it's like a patient never quite sure if they're recovering from a terminal illness but now they have something in common the irish republican side
5:41 am
of belfast always hated rex's the pro british side though supported it until boris johnson came along with a plan to partly divide the northern irish economy from the rest of the u.k. with a trade border in the sea his former allies here see that as a betrayal of the foundation of the united kingdom people are very angry about it people are do not support what he is proposing certainly i think he has underestimated the strength of feeling across northern ireland where you know we ferry clearly and people on the ground for really cherish being part of this united kingdom being a full part of the united kingdom and if that's what your friends think then what about your enemies this neighborhood of belfast has no murals no symbols of the sectarian divide it is middle class and successful and doesn't like bricks it's in any form it is in places like this that the unionists hold over northern ireland is most at risk i think race it has clearly transcended the constitutional question that's not to say that conversation isn't still alive and people don't still have
5:42 am
