i'll tell you why many families are still struggling. weeks of deadly anti-government protests could finally force 'd a major political change in iraq the prime minister. mahdi that is has announced intends to resign he had to charge last year says he will submit his resignation to parliament mohammed was on the scene as a news emerged and has a support from baghdad. the celebrations were instantaneous as soon as it up the prime minister on the announced his intention to resign anti-government demonstrators but that's to leave a square practically threw a party. the stunning development came a day after more than 50 people were killed by security forces in one of the 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 iraq 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 are more encouraged than ever to keep coming out on to the streets and risk their
lives if you're going to do an argument out of that album isn't only adela 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 a lot of study on it not brought her whole family so they could all witness a historic moment together and you know as we just shot it 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. they had an arrest in iraq has been ongoing for weeks now the protests began in the
capital baghdad over high unemployment and claims of corruption and spread across the country from there despite public support from key religious and political figures by october 4th about $65.00 people have been killed in clashes with security forces protests subsided when the prime minister released a plan including subsidies and housing for the poor the crowds were turned to the streets angry with the government and what they say was iran's influence on november 3rd the iranian consulate and karbala was attacked and this week demonstrators set fire to the iranian consulate in the job sparking another explosion and violence the death toll from most 2 months of anger now stands at least $400.00. 80 is a former iraqi ambassador to the united nations he explains what will happen when and so money resigns and how it could shake up the iraqi government. the prime minister resigned. except resignation it is deemed that the entire song. of the iraq. what is next is that. the president will be acting
prime minister but he has a certain amount of time to name. the prime minister designate who then has 15 days to form a cap but he has to form a cabinet and obtain the approval by a simple majority vote of the. parliament so this is sort of mechanically what has to happen but what is difficult to see is that the impasse that resulted in the aftermath the becoming prime minister in the 1st place that in power system in place it's difficult to see that an up short period of time in 2 weeks the parliamentary parties will be able to agree not only on the prime minister but on a new slate of. cabinet officers we don't actually know what their positive vision is we know what they're against it isn't clear to me that they know what it is that they're for or how to get there so that the slogans of the secular state and of
corruption opportunities for all these are slogans this is not a political agenda there's no leadership to these demonstrations it appears and in a way forward does not immediately present itself where is likely to result in more chaos as in a fear. and state that's my fear to people have been killed in a knife attack in the heart of central london a suspect was also shot during the sensitive and that has not been identified as reported to of been released from prison for terrorism related offenses around a year ago. it was a life or death struggle witnessed by hundreds of shocked bystanders the man in the gray sweater is pinning the london bridge attacker to the ground and police drag him clear and as the attacker rises the police officers fire trying to get off the bus because i can't and i started running and then i heard gunshots 5 or 6 pop ups and i see more police officers running towards the bridge and i'm running that
place was running out soon as a police passed us the side of the gun shops i was shim it was also popped really go on sounds out but there was there was gunshots quite a few of them from another angle mobile phone footage shows how several members of the public overpowered the attacker before the police arrived the man in the black coat is seen removing one of the 2 large knives which the attacker had been holding an explosives belt which the man was wearing turned out to be fake but the police did not know that by this point 05 people had been stabbed and seriously wounded and despite the immediate attention of paramedics 2 of the victims later died. my heart goes out to their loved ones and to the 3 further injured victims. who i understand are being treated in hospital and of course to everybody who has been affected by today's terrible and mindless events. the
police are treating the attack as a terrorist incident the prime minister returned to downing street for a briefing with the security chiefs he then briefed the opposition leader jeremy corbyn this country will never be cowed or divided or intimidated by this sort of attack and of values our british values will prevail we have to remember that we live in a democratic society and those that would seek to silence us will not succeed our democracy must be alive and vibrant. it's just 2 years ago that 8 victims lost their lives in another attack of london bridge in that incident 3 men used a rented van to mow down pedestrians and then rammed through the nearby market area indiscriminately stabbing people before being shot dead by offices in that attack they were inspired by so-called islamic state the background and possible motives
of this latest attack and all the immediate focus of the police and security services there is an intensive ongoing police operation down here at the south side of london bridge people are still filtering out from where they've been held in quarantine essentially in their offices and in their homes now being allowed out we've also seen an unmarked police car moving at speed through the police cordon and on to the bottom of the bridge this investigation will take many more hours many more days paul brennan al-jazeera london bridge pulmonary negotiations between the u.s. and the afghan taliban have resumed the taliban confirm the informal talks as u.s. president on a truck made an unannounced visit to afghanistan the talks were cancelled by trump in september of following an attack by the taliban out of peru opposition leader cake of which he mori has been released from jail schembri supporters are gathered outside the prison to celebrate her early release but you more as the daughter approves former president she was serving an 18 month pretrial sentence for
