they say they're living in a constant fear of fiction but that they are determined to fight for what they claim is their habitat. the iraqi cabinet is due to meet on saturday a day after the prime minister. he said he intends to resign his announcement came after a violent crackdown on anti-government protesters who took charge last year says he will submit his resignation to the parliament has this report from baghdad. the celebrations were instantaneous as soon as it up the prime minister i did the announced his intention to resign anti-government demonstrators but that leader 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 and i don't know we don't have 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 for certainly 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 at all these praying constantly not just for the dead but also the living. but that.
lonard. correspondence fault in the process for the prime minister to resign isn't clear so when he tendered his resignation to the parliament is it guaranteed that the parliament will actually accept it. well no it's not clear at all and we're actually entering a constitutionally ambiguous area here and the way the prime minister announced that he would resign is further adding to the confusion he said that he would be sending his resignation to the parliament but there is nothing in the constitution that actually asked him to do so the bylaws of the parliament however mention that the prime minister should be sending his resignation to the president who had been merely accept it so it's unclear whether the parliament at all needs to vote on his resignation this is currently a point of contention between members of parliament who are discussing whether in tomorrow's session they should be voting at all now what's prime minister out of
the aftermath he seems to be doing here is that he seems to be wanting to trigger a no confidence vote in parliament and that is something that would require absolute majority of course it would also trigger a political tug of war let's remember that the biggest block in parliament which is led by hot body and the iranian backed fatah party is opposed against his resignation and they're very keen to keep him in power so if parliament indeed vote on this on his resignation it's by no means clear that they would actually pass if my no means clear that he would actually step down does that mean that if he turned his resignation to parliament and they know that he might be trying to trigger a vote of confidence might they accept his resignation if only to call his bluff rather than go down the route of having a vote against themselves. well it is
a little base to be seen what happens in the parliament session tomorrow if indeed the both of them no confidence have been prime minister and a lot of them are the would still remain in office as part of a caretaker government horror 30 days now if there is no vote on the other question is whether he will actually hand his resignation to the president are not if he does that the present. it would then take over the office of the prime minister until the biggest block in parliament has nominated every placement that is something that can take months we have seen that following the 2018 election it took 6 months for from the start of the match the to actually take out office so there was a lot of uncertainty there is a big possibility that this resignation will simply if it happens at all it looks a little deadlock it will lead to more uncertainty and one thing however is certain that whatever the outcome it will not be satisfactory to demonstrators because what they want is to be able to elect a new leader direct let's remember that it's parliament that is currently choosing
the prime minister if i'm left the election is significant in london just currently not the case the proposal does not actually force c. for voters to elect the prime minister directly unless that happens then most traders will not be happy either with the prime minister out of there must be staying on or whatever replacement is chosen by the political parties in parliament . thank you. hundreds of high school student surrounding in central hong kong again they're calling for democratic reforms and they're standing they say against what they claim is police brutality during the recent protests that follows the arrest of dozens of students at the polytechnic university protesters there had barricaded themselves inside for almost 2 weeks after some of the most violent scenes over recent days sarah clarke is our correspondent joining us live from hong kong sara what's the atmosphere like. with city of a peaceful gathering we have here in central hong kong you mentioned that this sort

saying down with the system and down with all of the parts with different angles from different perspectives just because we came to prison doesn't mean right stopped at the gate separate the spin from the facts. jumps on stories we don't take the misinformation from the journalism it's about telling the stories of those human beings on the ground with the listening post on al-jazeera. welcome back you're watching al-jazeera a reminder of our top stories this hour the iraqi cabinet is expected to meet today after the prime minister he offered to resign anti-government protesters welcomed
the decision but say they won't back down until there's a complete overhaul of the political system. by school students are rallying in central hong kong there calling for democratic reforms and standing against what they say is police brutality during anti-government protests. rebels in eastern democratic republic of congo have killed 13 people it happened in coca tama near the city where 28 people died during an attack on thursday let's get more on that story for you this hour al-jazeera is catherine sawyer joins us from goma catherine what more do we know about the latest attack. well information coming out of there is still very scanty but what we do know is that it happened about 10 kilometers from the village where 28 people were killed earlier in the week we are being told that residents are 8 now feeling that it's safe to go
and assess the situation we're also hearing that some of the bodies mutilated others have their heads cut off and this is a situation that people have been talking about for the past week or so people very upset with what is going on that rebels are able to come and carry out attacks yet we have thousands of soldiers in that area carrying out an offensive against a.d.f. we have u.n. peacekeepers in that area as well yesterday evening the 28 people who were killed earlier this week were buried the families there are still very much in shock still afraid that this rebels might come back is it easy for the rebels to continue attacking the billet is there. well it seems to be and we've been talking to the governor of north kivu where benny's a territory in north kivu province we've been talking to the governor about just what is going on in benny and he said that this seems to be
a strategy being employed by the a.t.f. they want to cause maximum panic and fear they want to show that benny's and governable the security situation is out of control and they know that people are angry security forces so they're playing on that and they want to anger people even more so that we can see more protests going on the governor was saying now there is at least as i mentioned a government offensive against rebels going on in the forest in ben we have spoken to the spokesperson spokesman of the military he has said that the military is gaining ground they've taken several bases of a.d.f. in the forest they've also killed a rebel commander this saying that a.d.f. ice's are on the run but it seems they're running in the wrong direction because they're coming back to villages and carrying out this very brutal attacks catherine thanks very much which is police have identified the man who killed 2 people in
a knife attack in london was shot dead by the police shortly after the incident the 28 year old was convicted of terrorism related offenses and 2012 paul brennan is in london. 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 try to get off the bus because i can't and i started running and then i heard gunshots 5 or 6 pop up pops and i see more police officers running towards the bridge and i'm running that place running out soon as a police passed us the side of his gun shops i was shim it was also pop just don't really go on cells out but there was those 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 at london bridge in that incident 3 men used a rented van to mowed down pedestrians and then ran 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 on 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. crews opposition leader keiko fujimori has been released from prison after 13 months she was detained pending trial accused of receiving bribes from a brazilian construction company hundreds of her supporters gathered outside the prison to celebrate her release which in morning is the daughter of the former president fujimori mariana sanchez is in the capital nima she says this may not be the end of her legal battles. she was freed after the consequence of those 5 years ago of. course requested by her sister. in jail over a 2008 team and what that's not what the current. money or her presidential campaign or all that is here but no one so i am construction company d is it has been a common thing for the whole attention played her this. is some of president that
