11:02 am
around me may be over my shoulder. i mean, the one thing that's as large as life is a smouldering bus, and there are many of those dotting colombo ah, basically, remnants of watch protested. had set on the buses that brought all of these ma, him the roger boxes, supporters for that meeting. that the prime minister had before they then went and unleashed violence on protest her who had been calling for the resignation of the raja fox brothers and the government. so a large military presence in colombo that we've been driving around and seeing, we hear that this is the same around the country as well as the authorities try to get a handle on and get the situation of tensions that really are, went out of control last evening i under under basically some semblance of normalcy and control. so that seems to be working so far. we haven't seen these
11:03 am
are sort of a groups going around or looking for my mind. roger. some parts of supporters or mobs that had created violence. things seem to have sort of been, are quietened down. but despite the curfew, there are people on the streets as you can probably see, milling around, even this burning bus. demarco's family looked set to return to power and the philippines. beneficial results of the presidential election suggested referred not marcos junior. could become the next leader for the 6 years after his father was overthrown in a revolution to melon during report. not from manila. oh, i thought counting got turned away, it appeared for it didn't mark as junior was searching ahead. he's the son and named c. the former philippine president described by many as a dictator and ousted in 1986 revolution or the b. i call this
11:04 am
not done, i started or worked, but i wanted to issue a short statement and it essentially is a statement of gratitude to all of those or been with us in this long and sometimes very difficult journey. yeah. are you the 10 candidates are running up, but for the presidency venue? it's widely considered a 2 person race, vice president lenny roberto was also the leader of the opposition, is trailing behind. marcus junior. initial results show a lead, so white pool experts believe it is unlikely robledo can catch up. jason in your was up. and while i'm with you in the belief that the elections must respect the full voice and well of the people my life, it is important that the people continued their belief and respect for democracy. more than 60000000 filipinos voted for the successor to president rodrigo, to 30 in one of ages, oldest democracies. oh,
11:05 am
here in one of the biggest polling presence in manila voting day was marked with frustration. about malfunctioning boating machines. people lined up for hours and refused to leave, even as the pulls officially closed. for more mom, brittany lam, you're born. we want to be here one. we want to see over by not going through the machines and see the receipt of a much bigger telecom obtainable for what we refused to leave our posts. this election is too important and every vote is secret. the election commission assures the public that it is very much in control, and the sanctity of the votes is still protected. a marcus presidency would mean an extra ordinary return for a family that was forcibly removed from power 3 decades ago through people power and could become the most consequential election in recent philippine history,
11:06 am
jamal alan dugan al jazeera manila. while the results have already spot protests against voting irregularities, farms, louis has more from manila. earlier behind me, there was a crowd of around 300 to 500 people protesting outside the commission on election. a buildings saying that there has been electro fraud. they're referring to the fact that people say they haven't been able to vote a 1800 vote counting machines were not working properly. now that although is just a small fraction of the total number of vote counting machines that still represents double the number of machines that didn't work in the last 2 elections. now also, if you ask people who remember what life was really like in the philippines under martial law, during moccasin his administration, they will say that this victory was only made possible rather this presumptuous victory. and because the official results have not been announced, yet, they will say that it has only been made possible because of a mis information can paint now. but of course, if you ask macos supports,
11:07 am
his mark was junior supporters. it is a time to celebration in the early hours of tuesday morning, and some of them were there outside marco's campaign headquarters in manila, chanting, marco's junior, his name, waving flags. it's quite hot to say with a certain degree of certainty, what sort of policies are middest, his visit ministration and incoming administration will have. because the marcus campaign has been very thin on details and has been very limited media engagement, at least where macos junior is concerned. but there are such remarks that he's made that would make it able to glean now he's likely to be pro china just like its predecessor due today. he's also likely to he, but he's also said he's supposed to 10 days, controversial war on drugs which has killed thousands of people to mirrored. mary poll says at least a 100 men, the still trapped to the still plant besieged by russian forces. united nations has
11:08 am
been coordinating evacuations. we created officials had said at the weekend that old women, children, and elderly, had been rescued civilians and soldiers had been trapped inside the as of stall facility for nearly 2 months. as russian attacks intensified the remaining ukrainian soldiers, a refusing to surrender, saying they will fight to the end. at least one person has been killed and 5 injured during russian shelling of ukraine's southern positive, a desa, the cranium military as a shopping center in warehouse where hit a death. in his face sporadic bombardment, the city was largely sped in. the 1st phase of russia invasion, the past week, several towns himself. i've also been bombed the strikes for the council present to take cover and shall. michelle was visiting the city to emphasize it's important for grain exports that have been blocked by the war. delays that adding to a global food crisis. the cranes present has flooded this landscape, has called on the international community to pressure russia into easing its
11:09 am
blockade of ports, then shouted, initiate the president. charles michelle visited odessa today. he saw with his own eyes what the block see me with, for the 1st time in decades in odessa there is no usual movement of the merchant fleet. no port work, ordinary life connected with the sea is blocked by russia. and this is a blow not only to ukraine, without our agricultural exports, dozens of countries around the world are already on the brink of food shortages. and overtime, the situation can become, frankly terrible. the united states is accused russia is president vladimir putin of trying to rewrite history during the speech to mark victory de the annual celebration of the defeat of nazi germany. in 1945 ended with fireworks display. and moscow led putin led the traditional parade. he told russian forces they're fighting in ukraine for the motherland. and it suture. he didn't announce victory in ukraine, nor gave any indication of when he thought the war might end. what we saw president
11:10 am
couldn't do is, is, is give a version of revisionist history that took the form of this information that we have seen to commonly as the russian playbook. now what is fortunate is that we are all aware reporters around the world are aware. europeans are where americans are aware of the disinformation factory that present impudent and the kremlin seemed to be. but the suggestion that this war, that was prompted by directed by president putin, was prompted by western aggression or western plans is patently false. and absurd. let's say now from the gulf ma, who's assistant professor of russian discourse and politics at the university of governing. and as she says, the criminal can portray victory in ukraine because of its control of the russian media. given the overwhelming censorship on the russian media space is possible for us to make any kind of claims and claim whatever victory they want to claim.
11:11 am
especially given that they did manage to secure some parts of the course on air region. and also they managed to almost take money, but is known in, in russia as the base for those regiments, which has been used by the russian propaganda to paint the entire ukrainian nation as a nation. so this is something that is quite symbolic for, for the russian propaganda to use in put a species specifically talked about the protection of done bus peoples, which he did not say any, anything about some kind of retreat or advance in ukraine proper. he only mentioned them bus, which also something quite indicative of him trying to stick to the initial narrative of only protecting the people of them. but there is definitely the sentiment of as long as there is no war. and that's why the russian government is so reluctant to call it war in general,
11:12 am
because the soviet people that were the way that most people raised, even the current generation, the way the way that they were ranged, was also about russia sense of peace. and it cannot attack anybody, so pressure never attacked anybody. so this is the kind of sentiment they're really trying to promote and even pulling the aggression against the green war would be a massive blow to this. even people see that what is going on is in fact a war. so i had here an out 0. i could old growing problem with gang violence fighting between rival drug cartels in a prison. these dozens dead or on the run. and the dangers of being a woman in mexico protest is accused the government failing to solve the growing list of crimes. ah, the journey has begun. the faithful world camp is on its way to cattle. hook your

11:14 am
seen dust in the air persistently through north africa. that's no big surprise. it's still very hot in senegal, but the hottest wells probably now in the chair may be chad, and it's in this area where the seasonal shower start developed quite big was on a daily basis and they're getting well in to the very dry cell official airline of the journey. healing the debate, there is no he job back. if anyone here talks about women's rights also does this, this bill seemed of been says, note topic is off the table. we were taught to see abortion as a one way ticket strength to help all the companies deny any responsibility, even though they have the resources in the power to fix it, where a global audience becomes a global community. a comment section is right here. the part of today's program, this team are now to sierra, ah

after more than 2 years. protest calling for new government, send a how to reports from beirut is wanting change to the ballot box for it. difficult task. these squares were empty to protesters months ago. a battle for change, one by the political establishment. now, the movement for a new lebanon that began in late 2019, has shifted its focus from the street to the ballot box. different coalitions born from the uprising are contesting the upcoming elections. many of the candidates are young and optimistic, but they know political change won't be easy to do, but suffer from the, from the corruption or the, or we need, we know that you need time to change. we want to go into the fundamental change from inside. yeah. they're up against the sectarian base system of power sharing and leaders who are more powerful than the state politicians largely blame for the
11:17 am
country's economic color elections. although from the outside or democratic, they're actually run by the regime itself. and the regime has proven to use different fraudulent tools to secure its when so from plan for them to violence, to repression, intimidation, and even manipulating vote counting which we saw to 2018 election. but those empowers still have supporters and they have been accused of using violence. in this incident, the opposition was prevented from launching its campaign in the electoral stronghold of the muslim she, our group has below. and among the honda mit to him, we accuse the forces in charge of the region of being behind that and they are known to prevent any opposition. activity in lebanon, sectarian and political divisions are deep, and the opposition to was unable to unite to contest the elections. this benefit the political leadership,
11:18 am
which also relies on an electoral law that in trenches pick terry and politics. for those wanting change, this battle is about building a strong civil and functioning states. but they are seen as politically immature and criticized for lacking organization and failing to appeal to the masses. in the last election, those campaigning for civil society in lebanon known as the change forces, 11 seat in the 128 member parliament. this time, they're expecting to gain a few more, but not enough to change the system, but for them, the election is a necessary battle in a long war. then the oceans either beta conservative eunice akila has been sworn in the south cruise. do presidents where the, the presidents were among thousands, attending the integration. so in his address student called for the complete de nuclear station of north korea. and he said the door remains open for dialogue with young young. but it was connie tech, if north korea genuinely embarks and
