"And welcome to newshour live from the b._b._c. world service in london with me rebecca kes- be coming up on the programs day we'll be reporting from the g twenty summit in a sokha and chitty face-to-face meeting between britain's prime minister may and president putin of russia overshadowed by last year's nerve agents attack in the city of seoul spree with also head what president putin thinks of that issue well sit there's a major heatwave in europe at the moment france has broken all records with the hottest ever temperatures recorded in the country we'll get the latest on that and also we'll hear about the unmanned craft called dragonfly that will be known to tighten sutton's largest moon i mean when you've had rove sent to mos they've very lovely useful things slots calls troubled over the motion of but that's about it but dragonflies apps in utech -nology it's about the size of a call it's going to leap and hope and everything like that and we'll have more on that in about forty minutes but let's begin in asaka japan scene of the latest g. twenty summit where leaders of the world's largest and fastest growing economies meeting to thrash out pressing global issues and there are plenty of those to choose from in a moment we'll take a look at what russian president vladimir putin has been saying ahead of the summit in ray of you with a western publication he told the financial times that he believes western liberalism is now obsolete we'll come back to those comments first though let's catch up with one of the big meetings today and this was between the outgoing british prime minister theresa may end russian president vladimir putin now relations between these two have been strained in the extreme since a chemical attack on a former russian agents in the english city of souls bring i'll steer that left one member of the public dead Is to say that the handshake in greasing seemed pretty icy. Let's cross to a correspondent on the scene. Serra rains, as she joins us live from Japan. Sarah, what can you tell us about this meeting today between prime minister may and President Putin? well i think it'd be described as extremely tense i mean certainly the body language from threes was very very stern that was a fairly chilly handshake she sort of marched towards putin he tried a half smile she kept grim-faced throughout sort of turned face the cameras deliberately keeping that look on her face and that's because she says she wanted to send a message to russia it's passive behavior that includes of course that novacek attack in salisbury muster must stop that's the message coming for the u._k. government saying that russia must take responsibility for what happens mrs may going into that meeting saying there is clear evidence that russia was behind the attack on a former russian spy paul and that is unacceptable despicable was the way that she used now when i asked the kremlin in the brief chance that we had to try to find out what the kremlin's response to that was to meet ups golf said that mrs may did give that message and she received what we were told was the necessary statements from president putin now we can be sure that that was a flat out denial once again from play putin because they're not inter- you mentioned with the financial times he said again that there is no evidence that russia was involved in any way in this case cripple the british are in a really difficult position with this on because they've had this tough line right from the moment that it happened that totally convinced that the russian state was behind it but of course there was another attack on british soil years ago with the alexandria litvinenko in london and they've never got to the bottom of that either well it's certainly never got russia to accept responsibility for that i think in both cases it's quite clear that the richard authorities are convinced that russia was responsible and both the case of alexander litvinenko and in this case pollen his daughter yulia and of course to british were also affected by the nova novacek poisoning now mrs may went into this meeting said that the evidence of russia's involvement was refutable i think is interesting the message coming from the kremlin the comments from to meet ups kaufman spokesman was to underline the fact that mrs may made those those criticisms that condemnation of the souls spree poisoning in a one on one on one meeting mr putin but then the sides move to a sort of broader format with other diplomats ministers involved and then they discussed business they started talking about the economy they started talking about trade ties i think perhaps this might be the way forward certainly the kremlin has kept saying recently that they are interested in spending in revitalizing business ties with britain for moscow oversea that's important because of the sanctions that the west has now imposed for some years on russia russia's economy is suffering at wants to improve ties with an of course heading towards brexit and any economic ties it can maintain develop also potentially useful to the british economy and just a few weeks ago in fact putin invited a whole big bunch of british businessmen to the kremlin to sit down and talk business it seems the kremlin is trying to use business as a route to restore relations with the u._k. although politically obviously the temperatures still extremely chilly all right well very good to hear from you live there thank you very much that's our correspondent on the scene several raynsford in circa well the liberal idea has become obsolete that's the headline across the front of the financial times here in london today it's a quote from that interview that the russian president for putin gave to the paper and head of this g twenty summit in japan mr Putin says that liberals can no longer dictate the political agenda now that nationalist and populist ideology is gaining support all over the world. The financial times has kindly. Let us run part of their interview. what what is happening in the west what is the reason for the trump phenomenon as you said in the united states what is happening in europe as well the ruling elites have broken away from the people there is also the so called liberal idea which is outlived its purpose a western partners of admitted that some elements of the liberal idea such as multiculturalism no longer tenable We should. well as we heard from soccer the british prime minister theresa may has been meeting mr putin today and as we heard she's calling for the two suspects in the script case to be handed over for questioning by the british authorities here's what mr putin told the financial times about that issue Sure. all this was about spies and countess buys it is not worth serious interstate relations this story we say it is not worth five kopecks an issue concerning interstate relations they are measured in billion and the fate of millions of people the average person listens and says who are these polls and it turns out that scruple was engaged in espionage against us so this person the next question why did you spy on as using scruple maybe you should not have done that i think that both russia and the united kingdom are interested in fully restoring relations and our thanks the financial times those clips from that interview well listening to that and joining us live now is the writer and historian who specializes in eastern europe and particularly russia and applebaum thank you very much for joining us it's probably worth mentioning again really isn't that how rare it is that president putin gives a sit down interview to a western paper there's a lot going on in british politics at the moment new leader any moment how significant is that who is he really aiming these comments so yes my guess is that the reason for this interview was that he sees a big change coming in u._k. politics there's going to be a new leader of the tory party it's probably gonna be boris johnson who will be prime minister within a few weeks there could be of course a new kind of labor leader as well and what he's really looking for is a new opening to the u. k. and perhaps even hinting that what he'd like is for the u._k. to be allied to him if it's not going to be linked to europe it's a moment when maybe he can he can kill the u._k. away from europe which is would would would suit his broader geopolitical goal which is to break up and undermine europe and western institutions more broadly yeah of course he's talking about liberalism but in very social terms really l._g._b._t. rights migration not in the mechanisms of liberal ideology democracy independent judiciary that sort of thing he done that no you're exactly right i mean this is kind of caricature of liberalism you know he liberalism in putin's words is i'm quoting from the interview migrants can kill plunder and rape with impunity or children can play five or six gender roles in other words he's using kind of old far far-right caricature of liberal ideals to denigrate them and this is of course what his state media does it's what russian trolls do this is a this kind of line has been coming from russia for awhile it's just it's unusual to hear it from the leader of russia and as you say this has nothing to do with liberal democracy with voting with freedom of speech with with balance of power with an independent judiciary these kinds of freedoms and mechanism for ruling society which really more deeply what liberalism are he's not talking about those he's trying to characterize it to dismiss it to say it as something that's over which is i say is is the kind of language you hear from authoritarian or liberal parties in the west as well well i mean has he got a point though because many people might look at the political debates all over the world and see some of the ideas on depending western liberalism under pressure at least under threat in many places and whether they like mr putin or not they might agree with him that the glory days of liberal thinking on over It's of course, is absolutely true. That, you know, for for variety of reasons. The liberal democracies are not looking as strong as they as they did a couple of decades ago. and liberalism is liberalism understood as liberal democracy is under pressure not least from states like putin and from other illiberal authoritarian countries around the world who would very much like liberalism to be over because liberalism is the most important challenge to them it's important for them to portray the west and crisis because that protects them at home you know putin above all is afraid of the ideals of democracy the ideals of liberalism protection for the individual Protection for human rights because that's challenging to him. then doesn't mean that the people in the west have to accept his characterization or his character liberalism and liberal democracy or something that people have always had to fight for and you know our societies will continue to do so yeah you say he's afraid of those ideas and ideologies he still afraid as much as the oiseaux always that are more confidence in the fact that so many people and leaders in the world seem to be agreeing with them more a more if he wasn't afraid he wouldn't be putting his own people in jail he wouldn't be arresting journalists as he did a few weeks ago planting fake drug evidence on on a prominent journalist he wouldn't be cracking down on demonstrations or censoring the internet you know he's afraid of these things because he sees they could undermine him and this is why he's gone on the offensive this is why he seeks to disrupt elections this is why he funds these national populist parties so called populist parties all over the west so all he did in this interview was say in public something that we know he believes and has been acting on many years now and i will bom thank you very much indeed for joining us live on that you're listening to newshour from the b._b._c. world service on w._n._y._c. in new york it's nineteen minutes after nine o'clock today on all of it stewart speaks with author and comedian chelsea handler about her latest book life will be the death of.

"Live from the BBC World Service with me, Rebecca kes- be and coming up later. This will be introducing. Yes. Met a British Bahraini trumpeter who plays jazz in a way that you may not have heard before a mixture of jazz and Irving music with Electric's somebody described my music as psychedelic Rb jazz, which I think fits quite well, so yeah, I haven't this is the Joan psychedelic Arabic jazz. Sounds good more on that succumb and with us for the whole program today. Holy digress. An Iranian American writer and analyst on Middle Eastern affairs at the Atlantic Council focusing on Iran and Philip psalms Anglo-French barrister author and professor of law at university. College London, Philip tell us about your latest book onto stunned you've got one on the go at the moment, while it's a sequel to EastWest street, which came out three as ago has been trailed in ten part BBC podcast series that are night last year called the rat line. And it's the story of a man could alter vegeta- who was a Nazi governor who escaped onto may nineteen Forty-five disappeared off the face of the earth and repaid four and a half years later in July nineteen forty nine dead in Vatican hospital. And so exposed the question of what happened to him? In those intervening for years, I've had access to. To the correspondence the he had with his wife. So it's sort of a love story. But it's also been an unpicking of the diaries, which are all in German them, which I with three wonderful research systems have been translating interpreting and working out what happened in. It's a pretty astonishing story sands like a lot of hard work as well. Delving into a we all kind of when when is it like, he's come out? It's coming up in April twenty twenty question about what it's going to be called the podcast was called the rat line. And it was. The World Service and radio foreign, and it got millions of downloads listeners still hear it. I think. It's viable and will be available forever. I hope as part of the intrigues series. But it's raise the interesting question of do you give the book the same title as the podcast, the right line has a sudden brand recognition now on the other hand one stream of thought says well, people went by will read it because they think they've heard the story in the book is much broader on his different in part because I got a lot of this McComb end. And that is I knew avenues of expiration. So we ended up with one conclusion as to how vegeta- had died, then we got a lot of medics writing insane. How we explored this or that? I'm no expert on deaf cap mushrooms poisoning, mushrooms and things. So it's got a whole new life. And just in fact, this week someone alerted me to a Red Cross passport issued in the name of vegeta- pseudonym. Alfred rhino. So we've gone wild goose chase. I suspect with Red Cross possible. It's, but it's mystery sounds like a wonderful story, and from that to another fantastical story Hollywood, which I know you're watching and we're only hours away from the next installment. This is game of thrones, which is a fun to see series. That is just been taken up all over the world. And you've been seeing how it's playing in Iran. Yeah. I mean, a lot of people don't really associate Iran with game of thrones. But Iranians are big fans they've actually dedicated their whole line of Persian illegally Persian translated versions of the book. They've dubbed the show and you can download these online. There's dot I are fan websites. They've actually dedicated Instagram accounts and telegram channels with Persian language means about game of thrones. So it's been fun watching that happened in. It's not just game of thrones. By the way, I've seen Harry Potter have a face. I've seen Lord of the rings have a face. So Iranians are very much in tune with the story like the rest of the world. So but why though because I mean, it is a very bloodthirsty story. It's really complicated as well. I mean, if you miss any of it, you'll you completely lost. You have to watch the whole thing. Renzo weekly. That is. Is it a feminist tract at some people arguing and how does that play Iran? Well, I'm gonna I'm gonna open an dancer Rebecca's question first because that will explain impart the feminism question, which is that actually it's reminds Iranians of the Persian epic the shot Amanda keep of ki the king of kings. And essentially there's a lot of storylines of people taking the throne and losing the throne in all this drama. And there's a lot of strong women characters in the shot and minds them of their historic pass, which is relative to Homer's epics. So they like that. But then the feminists streak I mean, the contrary to the stereotype Muslim women, especially women are some of the most strongest and most impressive people I've ever seen contrary to what people have stereotypes about that part of the world. And so I think. People are cheering for these last line of women who might take the throne in the coming weeks. Utha gets tracked. I think it's mix of things it's a mixed bag. I think there's a lot of things I it's hard to watch the show and you'll never know. What's really happening? There's so many plotlines twists you just never know who's gonna get killed the next year. Then that's true days, really blood. I isn't is quite a lot of violence against women. And you say visit big episode coming up today later on we don't know who's going to survive. I mean, it's the latest thing on Twitter. Indeed. Let's move on now. Because of course, this time last week. It was Easter Sunday for Christians, and it's one of the most important days of the year. But it was a coordinated attack underway across their Langkah churches and hotels targeted by suicide bomas now security officials suspect is highly likely that ovo the attack is were local it seems they had help from the so-called. Islamic state group has been a lot of criticism for apparent failings insecurity ahead of those attacks apparently warnings at being ignored now. These days of emergency remains in place in Salunke and Christians have been advised. Today's we've been having not to go to church Muslims or toll to pray at home on Friday, these two minority communities insert Langkah, but both feeling very frightened after last week's events. Let's speak now live too far Amila who's a British Lankan, Muslim human rights activist and lecturer in. Conflict. Studies at the university of Exeter. Thanks for joining us. Thank you Becca. Now these attacks they seem designed to try to divide the communities in Salunke, but we have seen this week quite a lot of unity in grief for the victims. Yes, indeed. We have this being a public coming together in in many ways. Of course, it doesn't show. The fact that many people are angry and Muslims are feeling very afraid invulnerable following the attacks. But nevertheless, as you quite rightly said Muslims took a decision not to go to mosque to show solidarity with Christians. They have been mosques that have been opened and out for non Muslims to come and visit. They have been vite flags put out the Muslim religious leadership has said that no moss can conduct feel pres- for any of the bombers. And you have a big outpouring of grief shock and attempts to come together. By many different groups in Sri Lanka. But what this really means is yet to be seen because we are very much quite divided country in many ways, we've had an ethnic conflict for many years. Now, we are on the cusp. I would say of religious conflict. Yeah. You say the most have been closed in solidarity. But there's also been concerns that there could be some sort of reprisal attacks just the ongoing that's being whipped up by these attacks against the government. Do you get a sense that that is a problem very much? So yes, you have to understand that Muslims were already seen as the any meal or as a threat by both the single Thomas. Muslims are seen as an ethnic. They consider themselves an ethnic, Anna religious group and. Soon after the vote ended Muslims were targets of violent Buddhist extremist attacks day targets of very very widespread. Head campaigns on social media which claimed that Muslims are trying to take over the country through the economic power and through high birthrate, and none of these claims cannot be substantiated, but large number of people I have interviewed in very hard causing his areas. Believe this claims now the Thomas also find Muslims a bit of a challenge because Muslims come from the tragic traditional homelands, which is the northern east which they were fighting for a separate state for thirty years. So any claim they need to make post conflict as a solution to the conflict for a separate kind of political Tournus area would involve the Muslims. So they've already been vulnerable to both groups, and this has just changed tremendously now because then all seen as threatening it manifested the most simplest level, for example because Muslims are dispersed. Across the country that lives side by side to Singhalese and Thomas. We meant particularly identifiable they cover their heads. So you have instances where you know, if a woman wants to stop a three Wheeler try show, which is a very common form of public transport. That drive would be afraid to pick her up onto even offer lift. Yeah, I mean, you mentioned that follow the civil wars ten years since that was over and that being much enthusiasm about the growing tourist industry in Selangor. Now that was going to help the economy, and that's just being totally devastated. Now Scholley by this attack. I think they need to wait and see because what is difficult to say. At the moment is the this is a one off event over the it's going to build into something for what we do know is that they is no appetite amongst Muslims for any form of violence. They they are very very unlikely at any level to support this kind of extremism. So they will do everything possible to root this out. And in that case, how this kind of terrorism can continue is questionable and that in entry Lanka is a very resilient country throughout the war. We had to risk coming, and we have really done a lot of work since then the divo- to retract tourism. But we have still a lot of problems. You know that as you mentioned it's ten years since the armed conflict ended any no government has yet dealt with the causes of the conflict. So there are a lot of issues that remain to be resolved. But the country is moving on in many ways as well. And you know, there is hope I. I want to kind of block the door at this stage, but we need to there's a lot of things that need to get done. Okay. And there's a lot full the authorities to do this security crackdown at the moment. Fire. Mill thank you so much for joining us from the university of Exeter..

Hello. I'm Daniel yet scout with the BBC news, sir. Lanka's security forces say, they fought a gun battle with Islamist militants in the east of the country.

Palestinians have received eight years worth of letters and parcels that have been held up by Israel. In a coordinated move. Hundreds of newspapers in the United States have used their editorial columns to blast President Trump for his attacks on the mainstream media. The president's views on critical journalists are well known. He regularly accuses them of fake news. He's even described US journalists as the enemies of the people is a snippet of recent comments may Mr. Trump, but they can make anything bad because they are the fake fake disgusting news. But what message does coordinating the nation's editorial Cullens against the president, send Rebecca kes- be asked, Alex Kingsbury, who sits on the editorial board of the Boston Globe, which is organizing the action why they decided this was necessary. It was that phrase the enemy of the people that we've found particularly alarming. We're not the enemy of the people. We are journalists and we are Americans and it's deeply alarming that the president would label journalists as such in a functioning democracy. And it's one thing for major news organizations like the Boston Globe with considerable resources. It's another thing for the vast majority of newspapers in this country that are very small organizations run by dozen people or less in small communities where this sort of rhetoric can have, you know, potentially dangerous consequences. The press is central to self-governing democracy, and we think that's an important message to reiterate. It shouldn't be controversial or newsworthy that journalists are standing up for the first amendment. But here we are well, I mean, those Genesis around the world might be listening who operate. In far more difficult circumstances than you do in the United States? I mean, the US has some of the toughest laws on freedom of the press in the world. They might just say, what? Why didn't you just get on with it and exercise those rights on a daily basis, which is exactly what we're doing. But the idea that the capitals of Ankara and Moscow and Beijing are seeing an American president label. Journalist says it domestic enemy is exactly the sort of precedent that we find deeply alarming briefy, Alex. What do you hope you've achieved today? We hope we've raised awareness with the American people. We might not reach Mr. Trump, but we hope our friends and neighbors take note of the importance of work that we do as part of the campaign, many newspapers, taking their own individuals stands as I heard from Washington correspondent Kris, Buckler I think what must be noted is they're all putting into their own words. We have a range of different newspapers more than three hundred all putting together at to'real 's in which the defending journalism they do it in different ways. The New York Times, they quoted president Thomas Jefferson. They don't mention President Trump, but others are being much more explicit. For example, the Saint Louis post dispatch says that Trump is inflicting massive, improper irreparable damage to democracy with these attacks, but they're also newspapers contained in these number that have put these editorials today that actually supported President Trump in his campaign to become president. For example, the Topeka, capital journal, it says we are not separate from the public. We are the public. We live and work complain to pick on ROY narrows. We go to restaurants and send our children to school. We drive the same roads. We're not the enemy of the people..

"Service in London with me Rebecca kes- be coming up more details on the attack. On what appears to have been a school bus in Yemen and later I care opens a flagship store in Hyderabad. In southern India with a restaurant that seats. Wait for, it one thousand people would get people to come, and honestly as I sit right now at the restaurant area I can see that I had not been able to get a meal because. It's been in AM and it's a long long More on that come but we begin with the latest in the case of the novel shot poisoning in the UK because the US State Department has imposed new sanctions on Russia as punishment for what it's now convinced was a biological or chemical attack on its. Own citizens illegal in international law but Sergei Julius crippled did survive the attack in the, small city of Salisbury in March but another British woman was killed and her partner contaminated after they found a, bottle containing the, powerful nerve agent three months later the sanctions, will kick in later this month they could be extended at the moment that they will relate mainly to exports of sensitive electronic components and other. Technologies that, can have military applications so far President Trump has, been silent on this latest move which could well derail his attempts to develop a new warmer. Friendship, and relationship with Vladimir Putin well Moscow Has hit back at the news it's. Consistently denied, the allegations and today described them as far fetched, the ruble has already slumped this morning though but the Kremlin spokesman Dmitry peskov spoke to Russian. Media, today Can you bring team the linking of any new restrictions. Which we continue to believe to be. A legal with the spirit case to be categorically unacceptable once again in the most resolute manner reject any accusations regarding the Russian stage possible involvement in what happened himself it is completely out of the question. Russia is not a never was involved in the use of chemical weapons and what's more we unable to, unambiguously say what was used in Great Britain because we have no. Information Kremlin, spokesman Dmitry peskov there that's the view from Moscow here in the UK the new US sanctions have been welcomed the foreign minister Jeremy hunt took to Twitter this morning to, thank the United States he said nerve agents and other horrific. Weapons must not come the new norm and states like Russia that. Use or condone their use needs to know, there is a price to pay but is that price high Hi enough Bob Seeley is a British MP for the. Conservative, party and sits on the foreign affairs select committee a short time ago he gave, me his reaction I think it's a sensible move and I think that duty-bound to do so. Will it, make much difference they seem, largely symbolic at this stage no but as the saying goes every little. Helps at it is good for the. British government that the United States has seemed to be clearly taking the same opinion sharing the same opinion as the British government that the the Russian state was tardy are largely behind us it's been a. Difficult few months for the British government trying to get to the bottom of what happened in Salisbury to, people deliberately poisoned it seems in Salisbury a further to contaminated one. Of those, died is extremely serious for the British government we hear this week that there's thoughts that the British of fairly convinced they know who may have been behind this attack yes, there is an assumption that There were two individuals Judging by what one can see in the newspapers and token to. To be in government, there, will be extradition warrants. Issued and arm shoulders extradition warrants will be. Ignored by the Russians all the Russians will try a gambit to suggest that we will. Observe consider these warrants if you, send us, somebody like, for example Bill broder who has been. Campaigning for the. Buck Nikki anti corruption anti money laundering acts which have been enacted by governments and. Parliaments throughout the world so they may offer in the same way that they did that Putin did with with Trump, a quid pro quo which clearly the United, States the United Kingdom not the. Nation's would not accept so what options are left then for the British because it's rather humiliating to have this kind of serious poisonous. Attack on, their soil I mean the British unable to protect their citizens. On, their own land well the Russians have Caradoc solutions here before at least one. Of them potentially, more it isn't good and this is why we've tried to get an. International coalition to act Against the. Kremlin's behavior there, is more that we could be doing that we should be doing however What can you do to be honest I think the most important. Thing that we could do right now is ensure the integrity of our electoral systems and our democracy we have, seen how that the Russians have clearly manipulated attempted to manipulate the two thousand sixteen US presidential elections and I, think much more extremely damaging information is going to come out on that in the next few months were you disappointed that President Trump didn't? Mention the script will? Case. When he addressed press in Moscow after that private meeting with Vladimir Putin a few weeks ago yes. I was surprised and disappointed, barge seems to be that the United States, currently has to Russia policies it has the administration's policy which is a traditional Republican policy towards Russia which is easy to understand -able and. It seems to be the President Trump is trying to run his own. Separate policy towards President Putin he seems to be bizarrely unable and unwilling. To criticize him in public he treats them differently differently from every other. World Leader despite the fact that. His administration continues to. Conduct a reasonably pasta and sensible policy towards Russians. So how do foreign? Diplomats and other, administrations around the world how do you approach that then it must be very confusing to know what the Americans think about Russia. I think it is very difficult on it depends his running Russia policy teddy given moment President Trump is very, limited in what he can do she can't just if sanctions because they're imposed by congress he has to obey, the laws of the land which are now kicking in as regards the chemical the use of chemical weapons on British soil so his hands? Are tied but he?.

"Oh six Hello and welcome. To NewsHour, live from the BBC World Service in London with me Rebecca. Kes- be in a moment will be heading straight to there's Imbaba Ian capital Harare for, the latest on those breaking news reports of the results, and the response to that and later in the program the amazing rescue of a man who survived for more. Than three days on an exposed mountain in New Zealand cyber. Dehydrated code definitely wasn't jumping around glad to see us and you. Know, he was struggling. A little bit at that point again lucky we. Go I'm not night, was definitely on the daily tasks the job. From self. That, law He can only, do so much for, so long More on that succumb. And Osama bin Laden's mother gives her first, interview we'll speak to the reporter who met her but let's begin as we have throughout this week. With Zimbabwe at an. Historic moment for the country very late last night the incumbent Ebba, Emerson mnangagwa's of Zanu PF was declared the winner, but by the narrowest of. Margins just fifty point, eight percent of the vote he's tweeted this morning urging Zimbabweans to unite behind the result saying, that this is a new beginning for the country but his political rival Nelson Chamisa of the. MDC has described the vote as unverified and fake. He, says he plans to mount a legal challenge well we are, expecting a press conference held by Mr. Chamisa imminently and we're going to. Go to that as soon as it begins already, we can see a riot police have. Gathered outside and we're watching. Developments there very. Closely we'll go to the moment we get it But first let's go straight. To the BBC's Andrew Harding who's there in the, capital Harare Andrew thanks for joining us. What are we expecting Mr.. Timmy's to say Well it's a strange atmosphere here I am at the, press, conference which, is at a hotel near the city center, and within the last hour as you, say riot police turned. Up in force and started manhandling journalists and A. Tense. Standoff began and, journalists course wondering why earth we were being targeted then some government officials turned up and said no it's all been a terrible mistake we thought this was just an MDC political meeting and. That's not okay so sort of I suppose a reminder of the battle days here where a political meeting by your position was seen as a threat as something to send the riot police to and that, clearly hasn't changed the one gets the sense of a bit of a tug of, war going on right now within the government and the security forces over how to respond to the opposition? And, their criticism of this election do they leave them alone and allow them to protest. To, go to the course or do they send the heavies in the the riot police and try and use the familiar old tactics yes an, you and our, other colleagues in Zimbabwe have been reporting quite a strange mood In Harare today very few people out on the streets is that still the case It is I. Mean the city's not ghost town but most businesses have boarded up. And very open people are. Concerned that there will be a repetition of Wednesday's violence you've got to remember here there, is a sort of muscle memory if you like all the Tara that the police the security. Forces inspire their quick almost instincts to beats to lock up to. Hurt the population any civilians who. Are challenging Zanu PF, the government script on power so people are wary that worries? Glad. The election's over, but they are not clear yet what's going to happen next. Okay as I mentioned we are waiting for that press conference due to be held we think by Nelson Chamisa and we will go to at the moment we get, it stay with us for a moment Andrew because just before we came on air we managed to get through to ten diabetes who. Is a senior member of the MDC. Alliance is also a former Finance minister and he gave me his reaction to the announcement of the result last night The, results of the normal myth medico county never mind against the mix is wrong Claims Amazon that he has won by fifty. Point eight that means that you said five thousand votes fro more Iran of scenario the anomalies we, have picked go beyond this in, the place him squarely in are no food scenario, but even before you go there if. He has said that on his own narrative. You one fifty percent of the vote it means that. Fifty percent of Zimbabweans rejected so it's quite clear that, this is a contested election it's quite clear that, he's. Illegitimate. Just, a dog's breakfast but when which many dogs. Won't touch by long Mike okay well I'm sure many people. May agree with that your your country is at a pivotal moment in its history it, has the option now to go forward, and to try and build a legitimate democracy which would include having a functioning opposition which is. There to hold the government, of the? Day to, account and to grow in numbers and to challenge the? Government isn't it the job the duty of the MDC to get on with that Job now and provide an, opposition that? The country, can turn to if it doesn't like whoever's in power Don't blame the. Victims don't play say, the obligation national building on the victims their obligation of nation building is on everyone so those of chaos. Those bishops of Cao's does end up Renault's of was what created this, situation must have slipped. That day there's a big value a bigger than power in the grabbing of it. And that's in Babylon let's put people in pick their people will. So that we can. All move forward you, cannot, years continue stealing license, every election with independence been contested. That's not good enough the difficulty I suppose though is that whatever happens it. Was a very close vote now those against you are, going to accuse the MDC of being bad. Losers we have by far the biggest lanes in this country. The people, that are speak speak for themselves they've put the streets that is not the behavior. Of people that one I one hour This kind of would it be done by joyous since. There's not, a single person So that tells you that? This is the result? Inconsistent with? Sentiment of the people what about the demonstrators are what, are you saying your supporters should they, come out onto the streets and demand this or you advising people to stay calm No no we went we went restraint we storm we went to peace we. Don't want people to be short so we exercising restraint. We you know we love Caesar but we love ROY, Moore so we exercising the strain that was Tendai Biti. From the MDC alliance being just a short time ago calling for restraint but obviously there. Are tensions still there in the capital Andrew Harding, is still there and was listening. To that get us up, to speed Andrew with? Another development? Today and that's the findings of the largest independent observers, report on what happened with the election Yeah, this is, Essen these Zimabwe, electro support network a group. Of NGOs you have done a survey you like they've been to seven hundred and fifty polling stations selected to try and. Represent the whole of the country and their findings are. That Zach the official electoral commissions results roving reflect what, they're finding so yes Emerson Mnangagwa appears to have one. And he appears to have one within a margin of error roughly what Zack has announced We've just lost the line there to Andrew but let me reassure you we will be going back to. This story, later in the program we're going to hear from a constitutional lawyer and of course that's at. Press conference if it happens For the. Second time..
