vladimir putin's resignation and the release of his fiercest critic and leaks in a valley was. have gone to great lengths to prevent such acts of defiance including arresting several of these top rates and warning social media platforms they'd be fined if they allowed the protests to be organized online. for parts haitian and illegal actions constitute an administrative violation and can lead to punishment including arrest. it's alexina valley's arrest last week that's behind the protests he was taken into custody soon after he touched down in moscow on a flight from germany where he had received months of treatment for a poisoning which nearly killed him he's accused president clinton of ordering his murder. violated the terms of a 2014 conviction fine. until misstates and jailed him for 30 days in
4:04 pm
a video posted soon after his arrest he said you know as prisoner. don't be silent resist take to the streets no one will protect us except ourselves. and to support his own said his calls today is an incredibly important moment to both sides but the kremlin that wants to show that not only doesn't have the support that he. found these teen they want to show that in fact a large number of russians are willing to brave the cold to defy the restrictions against these process to show their support and around me. and you could see they marched in minus 50 degree celsius mass protests have led to nivelle knees released from custody before but some analysts believe the tactic going to work this time because he's become too much of a threat to president putin's grip on power except ryan al-jazeera or let's get the
4:05 pm
very latest there from alexandra go for who's live for us in moscow xander what's the latest situation you see the protesters out in extremely large numbers. yes indeed these are the biggest protests in the last couple of years that moscow has seen there is more than $10000.00 people in this process because there isn't there are not only on the square off in which some 500 meters behind me which is back to but also into the surrounding squares the streets that are leading to this where you can see people passing by going up and down basically the presence of the police is also quite impressive and they are using force not only while they're detaining but also in attempts to suppress people to push them off we were just minutes ago up there and we saw at least 2 injured people in the scuffles with the police police was using their batons and their feeling bad events that are leaving
4:06 pm
and new ones are coming in but people that are gathered here don't seem that they're actually determined not to leave the place and they want to show their protest against the violence but also against widespread corruption and against the president of russia can sell flooding in place making dozens of arrests including we understand the wife of alexey developed the who posted about her detention from inside a police van once she'd been arrested. yes indeed you would and i know. came with him from the phone number. came to drop test of the post where and she was the same stare she was arrested she said aforehand that she was not to do anything else about to come and support her husbands and not only her husband but also people that came here today to protest
4:07 pm
also the close associates often have on you tube of salt what has been detained earlier today when she just arrived to the square day with police collecting her and her family. tensions clearly running high that in moscow and indeed in cities across russia of the time being thanks very much and they will come back to later as the day progresses and sin the meantime speak to. rush around a list and a visiting senior research fellow at king's college in london joins us via skype from london. so cool for supporters to get out in the streets and numbers certainly his words in the police are also arresting in large numbers and this is happening across the country. yes the bass white inmates and is something which is at bit different from the kind of progress which we have seen before or polices broke out there is nothing new about get at the fact that the geography of protest has spread
4:08 pm
all the way from like a muscle or our western not. also in all of the stick and see if you'd like had acted like a leg is the historic we have seen consistent numbers of people coming out now and now they might be and that they might if they in that they will interact. and will that people not hammering out why have a lot of young people. people of all ages all come. back with if not now yet if it is white that genuinely. do think what we're seeing will be the administration's policy going forward quash the protests the rest the protesters keep novell neighborhood bars. just that they hope that we have been around action have generated such a huge publicity one number and me and it's also
4:09 pm
a big cause after every authority on every network want people not to come up to these protests people who might not even have thought about it actually it started to be a way that we've not been at all coming out on the streets we have seen 7000000 viewers all i'm outlining these latest anti corruption investigation is who are reporting now that's quite an impressive numbers of the elite or bears that are scientifically. but are are a sign yet we are seeing quite a strong why good families all's not to spend they know if the meds be harming their own if the fiction south. yes we might eat into a quiet at the top of the aisle when. a sprain they don't like will still
4:10 pm
here still we have seen how much pork they have put there so what about the security services you know with the police always stay loyal to the administration . so mark why the large number. are you a motorway are what is now in the air and what is he doing and why b. and b. and b. and brainwashed to some extent that out of science we don't now how. we are how it's not some police officers also stand up saying look ringback we don't like the way we live it is more went wrong and. that was what was happening at the only. maggie is you know only 8 years and when school gets here and we have laws are all in your part also a police officer and security agent within 10 minutes well less if no one who upkeep picnicking be what munis need. would be that kind of litmus test
4:11 pm
if that will be happening so far we haven't seen that michael number but that's something you could who should. what is your sense where this could be heading to think it's going to be easily stopped talk could it continue to gain momentum if you can not only now what would be probably a sign out if they would look human prison or will ringback act which seems like however that is already a more moral our people are coming it's not just his own group or just what well now that there are kind of there is not sense of work political or economic as. i would also think it's not that evolution execution is not most people are still concerned about security for jobs and wealth and that's what the russian government through might and that's what you. got to pre-show your perspective your
4:12 pm
analysis thanks very much indeed that's and that's what the fever thank you. well the date has been said donald trump's 2nd impeachment trial will get underway in february senate leaders agreed to a 2 week delay allowing the chamber to focus on confirming joe biden's cabinet picks and a covert 900 students bill trump was accused of inciting insurrection when he encouraged his supporters to march on the capitol building earlier this month heidegger castro reports now from washington d.c. . donald trump has left washington but not his presence will soon be the center of attention again as the defendant in his 2nd impeachment trial this scene from trump's 1st impeachment will be repeated monday when the house sends to the senate one impeachment article charging trump with inciting insurrection. egged on by trump's call to overturn the election a mob of his supporters stormed the u.s. capitol on january 6th causing 5 deaths we all want to put this awful chapter
4:13 pm
in our nation's history behind us but healing and unity will only come if there is truth and accountability and that is what this trial will provide will also know it is now standard the $100.00 senators will be sworn in as jurors on tuesday with the trial scheduled to begin in earnest the week of february 8th from patient began with an on president a minimal process of this cannot be an insufficient process the former president tried to do. or damages the senate. or the program through its. president joe biden has stressed the trial should not jeopardize the senate's focus on passing covert relief and we're trying very hard to get up and running these crises the better the trials timing will depend on whether the senate will
4:14 pm
hear from witnesses how many hours of arguments will be allowed and if there's a way to make progress on biden's agenda simultaneously there is also the constitutional question of how to put a former president on trial a 1st for the nation really this impeachment trial is about whether mr trump will run for president again in 20241 of the punishments authorized by the constitution for conviction on pietschmann is disqualification from holding future office and that's a momentous decision to be made an enemy made with solemnity and gravity conviction would require the vote of 17 republicans only one voted to convict trump after his 1st impeachment now resigned to his florida golf course polls show a majority of americans want to see trump gone from public office for good. castro al-jazeera washington let's speak to my kind of course one of the joins us live now
4:15 pm
from washington d.c. for his impeachment is concerned to what extent of the 2 parties agreed on the rules for this unprecedented trial. well nick that we're going to see on tuesday the only thing that is set in stone is that constitutionally once the article of impeachment is delivered the following day at 1 o'clock the senate has got to convene to set up the jury at that stage the senate will decide on what rules it is going to apply for this impeachment trial it's going to have to decide where the witnesses will be allowed it's going to decide what the format is going to be it's got to decide how president trump will be able to present his legal defense so certainly this is completely uncharted territory particularly as we've got a situation here where a president who is not sitting is facing an impeachment trial now we do know that there has been agreement between republicans and democrats in the senate to start
4:16 pm
the trial in some 2 weeks time that will begin in earnest mitch mcconnell the senate minority leader had asked for time that president trump can prepare his legal defense at the same time as well we know that or not publicly but the president has been talking to the senate majority leader he does one space to push through the many items of his massive political agenda in the weeks to come the senate's got to approve cabinet positions for example so he has got had some influence in this of terms of giving a breathing space for some of his policy changes to go through the senate before this trial begins then the question is whether the senate's going to split its time spend half the day conducting the trial the other half actually looking at biden's policy changes so a lot of unanswered questions which should become clearer once the trial begins 1 o'clock tuesday nic the new administration of course hard to work in many arenas
4:17 pm
not least in in the firing of former trump employees. well indeed yes and particularly this centers on one government arm which is the agency for overseas media and this is a sprawling organization government funded it runs networks like middle east broadcasting service radio free europe and of course the flagship the voice of the nerika now the background to this is president trump was absolutely furious at what he saw words an anti trump edge in the reporting's of these various networks he then culminated in basically appointing a loyalist as the chief executive officer of the agency who proceeded to either fire or demote longstanding members of staff in all these agencies now what happens to hours of president biden was inaugurated this man baikal pac was himself
4:18 pm
fired and replaced with a woman called kelly child who is a 3 decade veteran of the voice of america and who had in fact been fired by michael pac she has now fired everybody who had been appointed by michael pac all the trump loyalists that had stepped in these agencies so it's a massive turnaround and just an indication of how intense the ministration is on returning to what the status quo was now this agency in the v.o.a. in particular had always prided itself on its editorial independence of separation from government although it was funded it was set up very much on the basis of a organization like the british broadcasting corporation where it has absolute editorial independence there are fire worlds built in to stop it from becoming an arm of government propaganda. has said she's going to reestablish and absolutely ascertain that all these files were kept in place but it does to show that despite
4:19 pm
president biden's calls for unity he is not going to stand back and allow those embedded agencies that president tried to be put in place continue to sour not only the internal domestic policy of the united states but also its reputation outside the country. all right my thanks about my kind of in washington d.c. . baltimore still ahead on the news hour including why a community in argentina says it's being stigmatized and locked down against its will. a powerful storm hits an area of mozambique that is yet to recover from the devastating effects of cyclon it less than 2 years ago. i don't deny says of next month's fee for club world cup play out details of what teams and fans can expect from the qatar bottle. now vaccine make astra zeneca has cut its promise delivery to the e.u.

people in isolation in the province argentina was one of the 1st countries in latin america to impose acquiring team to prevent the spread of covert 1000. and one most lockdowns around the country have been lifted the lockdown in formosa has remained in place and broken since march last year human rights groups are questioning why people are taken to this isolation centers and the treatment they receive once they're there there are reports of people being picked up in the middle of the night in their homes and taken with their families and that's why human rights organizations are asking provincial authorities to ease this restrictions immediately for most us government says its radical measures are necessary to fight coronavirus the government claims only 6 people have died of covert 1000 in the province and that their policy has been successful. but many

4:26 pm
in hong kong have been ordered to stay in the lockdown is the toughest pandemic restriction imposed on the territory so far it affects a densely populated district that accounted for half of all new coronavirus cases over the past week on call has been struggling to contain an outbreak since november. now taiwan's defense ministry has reported what it calls a large incursion by chinese military planes taipei says a 13 a chinese bombers and fighter jets flew into the southwestern corner of its defense identification zone its deployed missiles to monitor the planes tensions between beijing and taipei are at an all time high after the u.s. lifted decades old restrictions on direct contact with taiwan officials last week i listened to william yang who's a journalist and vice president of taiwan foreign correspondents club and joins us from taipei via skype with me i welcome to the program and it seems little doubt that the timing of this just days after president biden takes office china really
4:27 pm
setting out their stall their position. right this is a continuation of from the policy and the strategy that china has adopted since last year over the last year the taiwanese government has been deploying its fighter jet for more than $300.00 times throughout 2020 in order to respond to all kinds of different incursions by chinese fighter jets into the a.z. id and today we saw the biggest number of single day incursion. prompted by the chinese fighter jets and i think this is a very clear sign that china is sending to the u.s. it is very unhappy with what the trump administration has done before it left the office and it should also be seen as a message to the biden administration that beijing is closely watching and monitoring how washington is planning to at vannes war continue its relationship with taiwan when it seems as if the u.s. commitment to taiwan remains rock solid to the islands deflector ambassador was was
4:28 pm
invited to the. right that's the 1st time in 42 years that the town representative to the u.s. has been officially invited to the inauguration and that made headlines across the world and certainly beijing is viewing this as another sign that washington is intended to continue to strengthen its relationship with time one and any kind of official recognition of taiwan's of fish oils in the u.s. is going to be viewed as a provocation in the in the eyes of beijing and so the appointment of the end of pacific coordinator in the national security council in the u.s. will also be very closely monitored by beijing because that shows that the biden administration is mary likely going to continue the emphasis on the intel pacific strategy that's implemented by the trump and. biden does have an enormous headache his name how he handles the taiwan situation had this question given the state of
4:29 pm
relations between the u.s. and china he will want to improve those how do you think his policies therefore will differ balancing the 2 read as compared from. i think the most likely difference is going to be how he handles the interaction between us and time why during the trouble and machine we actually thought that trump preferred a very high profile and sometimes even provocative move to really publicly heighten the relationship and the engagement with taiwan but for the biden and mr asian i think experts also agree that it's very most likely that the engagement is going to become more low key but at the same time the engagement well and the size more practical purpose for it so for the part of time one it really depends on how the taiwanese government is going to interpret the messages and also the engagement coming from washington and at the same time for biden it is he's at mistaken won't
4:30 pm
have to walk a very fine line between not angering beijing by very publicly in him saying the engagement with time but at the same time ensuring that taiwanese people are not going to worry that the lesser public engagement won't be viewed as a way that by and the station is going to walk away from what the taiwan and the u.s. have been boating over the last 4 years william yang great to get your analysis appreciate what if you don't speak to us from taipei in taiwan or another whether or not israel. not everyone's enjoying the wintry weather of late but some will be those who can go up in the mountains of lebanon when i see this see covering the trees covering the merrington it's probably lay down that if you can go skiing well it's good to skiing will be good and the skies are open in blue knots true from turkey east was through iran the way science to the south coast of among very few showers if any around and he will the somalis blowing is weakening so temperatures will rise a little bit in day or by both day and night but this precious that allows to talk
4:31 pm
about russia is creeping into turkey again but that's not exactly unusual. the hazards of violent weather recently further south you know that the tropical cyclone eloise it made landfall just south of bear is pretty widespread flooding need to waist deep i think this is the other side of the river from bayer itself but that's just an example the winds died down there you can't really cover it is a cogent storm one small so we were watching throughout sunday and monday the amount of rain that could fall apart is yet more flooding that will be true for central and southern mozambique for certain zimbabwe bit suppose one of these eastern side of south africa both on sunday and monday those are going to be slow moving thunderstorms there be an awful lot more flooding yet to come. still ahead. why more palestinians are turning to traditional justice systems to protect themselves and their families. we are in one of the most famous museums in the

4:34 pm
kremlin critic alexina value protests are underway in dozens of cities around the country. a covert 19 vaccine make astra zeneca has cuts his promise delivery to the e.u. blaming supply chain issues it is a severe setback for the books vaccination program it's already suffering after the finds a biotech a slow death supply. but taiwan's defense ministry has reported what it calls an unusually large incursion by chinese military planes diving says 13 chinese public planes and fighter jets flew into the southwestern corner of its defense identification zone. saudi arabia says it has foiled an air attack over the capital riyadh the kingdom's come under repeated attacks from the rebels in neighboring yemen the saudi led coalition intervened in yemen in 2015 and has been at war with who these ever since rebels have not claimed responsibility for the latest attack. well the u.s. state department has begun reviewing whether to keep its terror group designation
4:35 pm
for the who these parts moved by the previous administration under donald trump humanitarian groups say the designation could hamper a deliveries the u.n. says the war in yemen has become the world's worst humanitarian crisis the iran backed rebels took control of vehemence capital sana in 2052 let's take a closer look at it let's bring in sultan baraka to sit director of the center for conflict and humanitarian studies at the doha institute joins us now from here in doha mr baraka good to see that my pumpin and betty donald trump's designation of the youth eases a terrorist organization that came less than 2 weeks before trump left office what problem now does joe biden have with it. well i think he has a serious problem on hand in the sense that is the designation of urgently was framed around the house with ease being a foreign terrorist organization based on their attacks on saudi arabia and if the
4:36 pm
news it's correct we had earlier today that they reported and you had attack it would make it much more difficult for the by the atmosphere issue to review this this ignition how it is ignition and so on is unlikely to happen and this is what we've learned from many of the civil conflicts the designation were not the yemenis inside yemen as much as the saudis and the relationship with the yemen we. already the last couple of days since it's come into force it has caused a major computer and among international agencies. companies who are supplying food to yemen shipping companies who are trying to carry that route into yemen a lot of them reluctant to engage in yemen not because they don't want to or there's no need for their house but the does ignition and it's blankets form at the moment without much detail in makes it. very difficult for them to engage and the
4:37 pm
high risk area for them to to engage so the easiest is to withdraw and ultimately i think the public would pay the price and as you know yemen is already one of the worst human in the human chain in that disasters and is likely to get worse. with further details on how this does initiate going to work i think the situation worse yes millions and millions of facing a terrible situation there do you think that the biden administration the in yemen the situation it is intractable now countless have been made to try and solve it but have failed do you think the biden administration can get they can mediate its way to a solution. i think it i think they can and in a sense he has not should but to do because he's already friends in saudi arabia to cut its rights to support because morally biotin and many people in the congress were against the war and articulate to the king of prussia ji now you recall there
4:38 pm
was a big movement within the american congress which led to. a reduction in support of the saudi arabian through the air fueling operations that were seized altogether but now i think he needs to show that there is a way to resolve this conflict through negotiations and what the united states needs to double and increase its diplomatic engagement in yemen maybe even up point a special envoy like they did for afghanistan and make it one of their top priorities because it is in their interests that saudis find a way out and everyone knows that the saudis now to confer an exit but it has to be an exit that save their say face and allow them to continue their strongest ally in the middle east when it comes to iran the last thing the byte and would want is to have a policy that ends up with yemen looking like the situation in lebanon with hezbollah
4:39 pm
being recreated in yemen with the support of the a and also i think you're particularly after the advancement with the saudi arabia in relation to date on what it's issued with arab states and they were disappointed so getting that gave it to that moment as if she will be very difficult to buy in and just simply just draw a line and the saudis so he must find a diplomatic solution that involves the saudis they have these and the government yemen and through that the designation will not help because to get to that stage to run her is required and contact of the how of these acquired and to the nation as it did as assess today will make it impossible or if there's a new normal challenge ahead the sudden market appreciate that thank you. protesters in the streets of tunis are again demanding social justice and jobs is one of several rallies held since the 10 year anniversary of the jasmine revolution
4:40 pm
on joining the 14th say the promises of the movements that kicked off the arab spring of not being met chinese economy and struggling with high inflation international debt and unemployment. a recent survey found that 2 thirds of palestinians do not trust the state's judicial system and believe it's corrupt human rights defenders say the weak judiciary is in turn strengthening a system known as tribal justice and his need it for him reports more and more people are moving towards tribal laws to get justice for their family and friends. this gathering followed the killing of 4 palestinians in a street fight. it's traditional to hold these meetings after such incidents in order to restore peace in the community they're part of an informal tribal system that follows its own laws when peace is achieved courts usually minimize the sentence but human rights groups see this undermines the official rule of law.
4:41 pm
doesn't believe the state's court system is just 3 of her family members were killed in a quarrel and her water lost me if it's either us or them i don't care if we all die even if the case states what generations will keep telling our children and their children what happened those responsible for the killings are now serving time in palestinian jails their families have been forced out of the village their houses have been set on fire not once but several times who will defend the tribal justice system say it's helped the revenge. others argue that they do why only basic human rights still these tribes work under the umbrella of the palestinian authority more than 60 percent of the occupied west bank is off limits for the palestinian authority this makes it more difficult to arrest offenders and enforce court orders. to stripes are limited to b.s.
4:42 pm
legitimacy continuity and popularity. but the political system in our situation you don't have an army a protector and drives can sometimes be faster and more effective than the state's courts they can put pressure on families as mohammed to now be knows only too well he was in an israeli jail when his father killed a man in 2009 isn't all your family was supposed to leave the village and he hasn't been allowed to return to his house. and had. yes there has been a crime if this means that a whole family will be punished for 15 to 20 years and we don't live in a country that respects itself 40 percent of palestinians trust the non-state justice systems some say the palestinian authority has failed to establish a strong judicial apparatus more than 2 decades after its stablish meant.
