4:01 pm
with the future of britain in the e.u. >> still right in the middle of a very busy night of europea league action. there's already been one big shocking start. and it is expensively assembled. tumbled in denmark, a round up of the big gains is coming up later. >> we begin where the main opposition presidential candidate has been arrested on election day. the u.s. state department has condemned his detention, saying it called into question the commitment to holding a free poll. he was detain add few hours ago by police after making allegations of vote rigging. >> his arrest was witnessed by our correspondent, he has
4:02 pm
more details on what happened. >> members of the opposition party told us a small group of journalists to taketous the house in a residential area, that they said an illegal vote rigging operation was being carried out. when we reached the property, people inside the house jumped over the back fence, the supporters apprehended up the road. they were carries handguns they were also carries handcuffs. there was a police vehicle outside the house when we got. they say this building was a facility a crime investigation intelligence facility. forces say there was a vote rigging operation up side. a short while after that, more armed officers came there was a stand off and they demanded entry inside, eventually he was detaped and taken away to his home where he was released. meanwhile, in other parts of the country, voting went
4:03 pm
smoothly, but in many parts they arrived very late, in some area that prompted unrest, and no voting in some stations happened at all. so the commission announced in 15 polling stations and other parts of the country, vote willing be carries out tomorrow instead. >> let's get more on this story a commentator and a contributor for the new african magazine, joseph, thank you for coming in, so there are concerns about the way the election in uganda has been conducted. we can see now that the main opposition candidate has been detained, this is not for the first time. what can we expect as votes are counted and the result comes in. >> it is extremely difficult. the message of being arrested for the second time in a week. and on this occasion, the police eventually when they say that the escorting the
4:04 pm
president home. but clearly, i think the incumbent is quite scared. daring him quite seriously, probably for the first time since 2001 we know in most of the areas where it is traditionally strong, including the old western uganda. there is messages of visitors digging in p. >> as you said, it isn't the first time he has stood against them. this is the fourth time he is challenging the incumbent. why is he being seen as more of a threat now than he has been in the past? >> there's evidence when he challenged for the first time in 2011, some including who probably was one of the state indicated that he won. they went to court, and the junks were untwisted with evidence that the win.
4:05 pm
so considering what has been happening and what happened the last 12 months there's no doubt that the vast majority of uganda are very tired. claiming rig elections in 1980, and rigged elests in 1980, and powerful 30 years and as you can see what happens, even the nearest polling station to the headquarters of the commission, calling much delay by three hours. how do you explain that. >> they are growing weary but they do they necessarily back the opposition candidate would you say he has been gaining strength? he has, but i think part of the problem with the opposition, is they are prejudiced general way, is the lack of paragraph. and part of the politics across the continent, is many of the politic parties are not necessarily structural issues based. but in unigan da, generally,
4:06 pm
most people are rallying over changing agenda and supports policies. >> well, generally change, but also on the other hand, uganda is one of the youngest populations in the world. but if you consider 35 and below, most of them are now in the name self-employed. people hardly have jobs. no hope. massive amount of corruption. there isn't anything numerous that is coming out on it, so really, anybody at the moment -- unfortunately, in the rural parts of the country, a vast majority of the people are intimidated. so you say people in rueful parts of the country are, intimidated but is there enough frustration, and discontent for there to be a challenge to the result, should there be fears of rigging, should people feel as though the vote was stolen from them? >> i think a combination of
4:07 pm
both. and where the incumbent gets away with it, they are so perhaps people to the north and southeast, they may probably help to get away with it, and others the population are central and western uganda, where people traditionally support areas, but people are sufficiently aware. how it happens will depend on what happens overnight, but really what has happened the last 34 hours is not particularly good for the economy. >> will it be interesting to see how this unfolds as question get the results in from the election, thank you very much for sharing your analysis with us. >> thank you mow the united nations has announced it will make it's first aid drops of food in syria. the u.n. world food program says it has a concrete plan for carrying out the operation.
4:08 pm
it hasn't been able to deliver by road, because it is surrounded by isil controlled territory. food and medicine has made it to five areas where 80,000 civilians are vannedded. >> this was a difficult test for the united nations. to show they could do it. for the government and the armed opposition, but so far, we are quite pleased about the fact that we were able to reach 82,000 people. so it did work, now of course we should go beyond that we should go far beyond that in order to reach everyone in syria who is either besieged or in need of being assists and that is why the idea of air drops has become a very complete proposal which we want to work on. >> now, kurdish fighters based in syria have been blamed for a suicide car bombing in which 28 people
4:09 pm
were killed on wednesday night. the president say's evidence that the attack was carries out by the kurdish group noun as the ypg, but they have denied any involvement, saying it's been made a scapegoat to step up the attacks meanwhile, elsewhere in turkey, rebels from the outdoor pkk december nateed a bomb in the southeast killing six soldiers jamal reports. >> it took the government just a few hours to identify those it believes carries out went's attack officials are blaming the group the y.p.g., even though it denies any involvement. a separatist group joined mayly from can you recollectish groups that has been fighting for decades. the investigation continues,
4:10 pm
so far nine people linked to the bomb having been taken into custody. and others have been identified. there will be never arrests in due course. that's all the information i can give right now. >> security has become more and more of a concern, in october, a 20 job attack kills close to 100 people, in the capital. just a few weeks ago, ice sit p claimed responsibility after a man blew himself up popular with tourists. all of these are links to the war many syria. turkey has been saying that the allies need to support the fight against those who posesar terrorist. far other powers are concern, they are the allies in the war against isil. now the international community must rectify that policy. >> the balance. >> the y.p.g. in the north, and the links with the p.k.k. we have touched upon, we have
4:11 pm
said repeatedly there's a strong link between them. we have been saying this and sooner or later our add lies will understand. early on thursday, it says belong to the p.k.k. in northern iraq, and they have been shelling inside for weeks now it wants to send in ground troops just across the boarder, but so long as syria and the allies control the sky, that option appears to be off the table. unless nato agree to support them. with wednesday's attack comes increases anger towards it's allies, the government here clearly feels it is being let down by the u.s. and nato. this could provide justification to send forces across the border, but the position towards syrian base groups continues to be at
4:12 pm
odds with it's allies that difference of opinion looks like it remains a problemmen 16 people have been sentenced to death in iraq. zero people have been convicted so far for the attack. 1700 were killed after the bass was overrun by fighters, more from baghdad it took the judge a little over an hour and a half to deliver the guilty verdicts. and passed the sentence on 16 of the men, and handed down death sentences. also dismissed a case against seven of the men for lack of evidence. and evidence is really the key thing that's cause add lot of controversy here in iraq. quite simply, iraqis haven't been able to see what evidence is against these men, and why they have been convicted of this massacre.
4:13 pm
when this occurred it was hugely controversy. when they took over, and they massacred up to 1500, or up to 1700 iraqi air force cadets, the numbers do vary, these cadets were unarmed or at least lightly armed. and they were simply overrun. aisle released pictures of this and they were hugely brutal and very controversial at the time, and now you speak to a lot of the people from the militias, from the iraqi army, and they will tell you one reason that they are fighting against isil is because of this massacre. and for that reason, the trial has been highly lily charged. now this has been going on for a year and a half. we have never really been given the reason why it has been adjourned and delayed. back in june 2015, we did see 24 people also convicted of
4:14 pm

4:18 pm
will not take a deal that doesn't mean what we need. it is much more important to get this right, than to do anything in a rush. with goodwill, and hard work, we can get a better deal. >> so emma, tell us more about what this deal involved what does he need to get from his eu. colleagues to satisfy voters and of course members of his own party back home? >> well, he needs to get a good deal, but that is going to be difficult. we know in the next few hours he will be meeting members of the group. now they are made up of the eastern block countries and we know that they are opposed to some of the proposals, certainly around migrant benefits. we know that will can be difficult for him. even if he get as deal, will it be one which he will of course sell as a good one but will it be good enough to satisfy the british public? of course, in the u.k. a lot of people are undecided about
4:19 pm
which path they should take, should it send e.u. as one of the original members or should it leave and take it's own path. and if he gets what he would call a good deal, he could announce the referendum and that could be as soon as the twenty-third of june. all right, thank you very much. bringing us all the latest from that e.u. summit. now, police in the capitol have used tear gas to disperse hundreds. veterans were not special, just because they fought in the war of liberation. many of the protestors support the vice president who is himself a veteran, and the faction in the ruling par city that rivals one led by mrs. mcgarvey. the u.n. has condemn add outbreak of fighting at the peace keeping base. the aid group of doctors without borders says at least

4:30 pm
it is the first time in some 80 yearns a sitting president has visited the island of cuba, the thing as issue is we all the do want a free prosperous cuba. that is with the united states, i should say that we all want that except for recall castro. and even the president, president obama mentioned that there would be no need for him to visit the island unless there has been guaranteed there would be political or economic reform in the country. or greater respect for human rights. however, we have not seen that, in the year since the united states announced an opening with cuba, there has been a uptick of political prisoners, some 8,000 arbitrary detentions and arrests in the last year, there are currently 60 at least, but between 60 and perhaps 120 prisoners of conscious in cuba right now.
4:31 pm
as you say, there is certainly progress has been made on the human rights issue, but the united states has had long standing relationships with governments in many parts of the world welt before the presidency of obama governments that have a questionable record on human rights what is there to be achieved by continuing to isolate cuba? >> you are right. we have enganged and had economic opens with street ma'am, and china. both of those communist regimes. but in both of those instances decades ago, we got something for it. there was either economic or political reform, in some way. we negotiated very heavily and traded with the soviet union when it still existed and we had a great reason to do it, we had issues missile defense, and things of that nature at stake. here can cuba we have no
4:32 pm
reason to pretend that the castro regime that is supporting regimes throughout latin person, which continues to brutally suppress the freedoms of it's often citizens, we have no reason to think they are going to reform and we haven't used any leverage we had for frankly offering the party in cuba great legitimacy. >> but cuba hasn't been granted everything it was seeking. you still have the u.s. economic embargo in place, and sanctions are unlikely to be lifted any time soon. >> yes. when we speak with the families of those who have been detained arbitrarily, when we speak to those who have family member whose have been killed, because they were lily and politically a threat to the regime, they feel that the current u.s. position towards cuba has in some sense beshared them. for many decades the united
4:33 pm
states represented the interest of the people of cuba. and there is a threat at this moment, that the interest of the party in cuba. and so it's an opportunity for president obama to emphasis that america stands with the people of cuba. even though at the moment, we are diplomatically enganging with the castro regime. but there has to be accountable for past crimes. innocent killings, and there has to be a brighter future and that future cannot be based on single party dictatorship and on lies about the past. and so it is a historic moment, and it is great opportunity to speak for the disdents in cuba, president obama could meet some of these individuals and that would be a great testament to the fact that the united states sees a freer future for them. >> mariane smith, thank you for getting us your opinion.
4:34 pm
>> thank you. >> it is the first time in 20 years the price has increased. part of emergency measures in a country that has the highest inflation rate in the world. al jazeera is joins us live now, so we are talking about a significant hike here, the largest in some two decades what's been the reaction there? >> =, the streets have been relatively calm, both wednesday and today thursday although it sounds impressive, a 6000% hike, what this means is you will no longer be able to buy the cheapest petrol in the world and fill your tank. for less than one u.s. cent. but you will be 80 to fill up your tank. so again maybe a bit too
4:35 pm
early to gauge what the reactions are going to be, but certainly as of now, what we have been hearing is these ward much needed reforms and if anything they are arrived too little and perhaps too late. economists have been critical says they are insufficient, and that in order to really get the economy back into gear a deeper devaluation was needed and everything a deeper hike in the price of oil. >> tell us how it works there? why raising the price is such a complicated process? >> for the first time in venezuela, which at the time was considered to be the most stable democracy, was rocked by a series of rioting this was a country that was not used to seeing this kind of
4:36 pm
social upheaval. like you said, it has taken went years to take this measure, and even now it's been taken it's been taken in the a timid way. certainly in the streets although the mood is chalk, there's a looming fear that the price of petro could lead to the price in public transportation, and even in p the cost of food, and that this in turn in a country that is suffering would lead to a type of upheaval like one we saw more than 25 years ago. >> thank you very much with all the latest. >> pope francis says women threatened by zika virus can use artificial contraception. he made the comments after the tour of mexico. he was also asked his view on donald trump's stance on immigration. the pope said anyone who wants to bill a border wall
4:37 pm
is not a christian. up from has called that remarkable disgraceful. >> as the end of the day, a human being is a political animal. i will leave that up to your judgement, but a person who only thinks about making walls again and again, and not making bridges is not a christian. the pope is being told that toon is not a nice person, i am a very nice person. something to the official that maybe donald trump isn't christian. i was surprised, but i am a christian. for a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. i am proud to be a christian, and as president i will not allow christianity to be
4:38 pm
consistly attacks and weakened unlike what is happened now with our current president. a demonstration has been held to protest against what some are calling the knights of the long diggers. a reference to a nazi purge in the 1930's. the office says the structures were illegal, but the owners insist they have the right to be there, a memorial wreath layed on thursday for small businesses. the mayor has flouted the country's constitution and dealt a serious blow here according to this opposition politician. >> tomorrow they won't come to businessman. they will come to ordinary citizens. they tell you to get out. we have no business here. >> early one morning bulldozers moved around 100 buildings across the capitol.
4:39 pm
small shopping centers, kiosks, stores, all pulverized. according to city authorities these premises were ugly, and didn't have the right documents. but owners say they proved time and time again, and had the legal right to be there. >> the constitution is the main law of the russian fed race. now any official wipes his boots on the constitution, any official without a legal court decision called our property documents useless. it is very wrong when someone can slander anyone and based on that take property away from you, it is scary when this happens. >> the mayors office has been trying to tidy up for several years. the legacy that the chaotic and law less 1990's, has been raised. they say this is as much about corruption and kick backs as it is about urban regeneration. but the city insists it is
4:40 pm
doing everything by the book. >> first of all, the decision was made according to law, secondly we are creating open spaces for residents. we are opening entrances squares for people to walk without obstruction to relax. we are fixing safety issues and removing structures to allow free access in case of emergency. there's been little word from the authority on the wisdom of destroying small businesses, in a time of economic crisis. and the owners are unlikely to see any compensation. >> no one is really arguing that the buildings which stood in places like this all over moscow were particularly attractive, and maybe the city will actually be better with them gone. but that's not really the point, the point is whether russia is a country which supports and encouraging small businesses, and whether any owner can really feel safe that a bulldozer won't come smashing
4:41 pm
through the window at any moment. al jazeera, moscow. >> now two men in kazakhstan have been sentenced to at least two years in jail for offending national pride and honor. a posted parts of an unpublished book on facebook. the ruling has alarmed observer whose say the government continues to harass even it's most minor critics from kazakhstan. exploring the identity, is central to his art. recasting something familiar with a sacred symbol whether his works are inspired in reverence or reskated depends on one's opinion and opinion really matters in today's kazakhstan. >> anyone can get of thed and try to take me to court, depending on the way the wind is blowing. yes, such dangerous times we
4:42 pm
live in now. >> last month two men were handed jail sentencing for posting excerpts on facebook from material which allegedly offended national pride and honor. since 2012, dozens have been prosecuted for incitement, among them environmental activists and this blogger, who said that kazakhstan should be part of russia. many cases were filed under article 174 of kazakhstan's criminal code. article 174 criminalizes actions that incite social national tribal racial class or religious hatred. or insults the dignity, and honor, the critics say that's a far too vague definition, open to interpretation and abuse. >> rights groups warn that anyone can be a target. there's a lot of gaps in the
4:43 pm
law, a lot of ignorance. very little tolerance among the population as a whole. very little cultural discussion. >> prosecutions are justified says the government, when the diverse population and it's sovereignsy are threatens it is a very different region, and for us state within society, enter ethnic harmony, religious harmony, this is one of the most important volumes in kazakhstan. >> kazakhstan occupied an uncomfortable value qume, beneathner the europe nor asia between two super power neighbors. >> i don't want to harm the image of kazakhstan. i don't want to offend my own people. but he believes art should have no red lines.
