He is on trial for corruption, but he refuses to resign. The country is divided between his ardent supporters and furious voters who have had enough of him. And this has created political deadlock, with voters feeling weary about repeat elections. Even some voting for Netanyahu are weary. Like other Weinstein, it's daring. It's a waste of money.

"And that's just not a good look for China is trying to play a kind of global leader, to some extent now and things like environmental questions. Jen. From the U. S perspective. How do you try to compartment carbon compartmentalize what China's accused of doing with the Wickers and then also working with Beijing on an issue as important as climate change, especially when we know that they're the world's leading polluter. Right. So that's kind of the big concern and the big question And, you know, just in December, this Thomas right, this U. S foreign policy expert I actually used to work with at the Brookings Institution. Hayward an article in the Atlantic basically saying that You know, predicting that Carrie would prioritize climate change over. You know some of these more, you know, seriously issues with human rights. Trade security s. Oh, that's what you know. Carrie statement was actually so important. I don't think a lot of people were expecting him in this. Excuse me in this press briefing to actually say that So when he did say that we will not do a trade off these issues will never be betrayed it off for climate was very important to see it. I think it reassured a lot of people that the U. S is not going to Look the other way on on serious human rights abuses. You know, we saw under the Trump administration very much focused on trade, Right? And on the trade, war and on, you know, extracting concessions from the Chinese on everything from Intellectual property and, you know other trade issues. And essentially shunting everything else to the side. Human rights, the treatment of the week Ear's Hong Kong all kinds of issues, even Taiwan, and so I think Avery is shared a lot of people to hear John Kerry say this now what that actually looks like in practice is going to be obviously the bigger challenge right? Because China, as David said, is going to try to link all of these things, and so it's going to be really difficult for By an administration tried to thread that needle and David, What does it mean for the rest of the world? If John Kerry is taking this position if we're here in the U. S, take this position that they're going to try. They're not going to lump all of this together. Does that signal something else to our allies? I think one of the big problems. The other allies with a whole bunch of questions, starting with climate is that they're delighted to have someone who isn't Donald Trump in the Oval Office. They're delighted to have all of these kind of warm words. We heard about NATO about alliances about climate change. But they can't forget the four years of President Trump, and they can't sort of forget the fact that there's an election in four years time and maybe someone like Donald Trump, but maybe a bit more competent and Donald Trump will be back. And so I think there is a sense that although there's tremendous relief On Being a part of where they have to be. There's also tremendous kind of unease that something was broken forever by the Trump. Here's about America's kind of predictability and reliability in these international forums, and so I think there's a lot of kind of finger crossing, but not a tremendous amount of optimism out there.

There were reports of looting, assault and sexual violence by soldiers from the neighboring country of Eritrea and the U. S. Is now urging all air tray and forces to leave the embattled region immediately. Jessica, I think we need to back up for a moment. Can you explain the conflict in Tigre Forest in terms of who the players are and what's at stake here? Sure so the regional leaders in the Tigre region where previously in control of Ethiopia, they were pushed out by protests two years ago on the new prime minister has come in Thistle sort of broke out in the fall when the Tigre region held its own region on election while the rest of the country Had delayed it because of covert and they came that this means that the current prime minister is illegally empower. Various clashes broke out and in the end, the government sent in the army into Tigre to re establish control. Uh, the Eritrean army is on the side of the Ethiopian government and because of the lockdown and information, it's taken months really, to find out exactly what's going on. But what we're hearing now is extremely troubling on the hearing. Reports of mass rapes, mass killings, killings of Children on starvation. I mean it, Zab, salute the horrific these air. These are only just coming out. David, When we're hearing these reports coming out where they coming from, How are we learning about this? Well, there is a tremendous concern that we don't know that much. We saw the head of the U. N Children's agency, Henrietta Fore, put out a statement specifically saying this we already know some terrible things are happening. We know that there isn't electricity that fuel has been cut off. We know that aid convoys aren't getting into The area where there is this fighting on. We know that there are you know that they're both sides to blame that the the Ethiopian government is making very difficult to get convoys in because there's a suspicion they want to starve the rebels out. We know that the rebels are capable of holding up those aid convoys. But so we know that, for example, because there's no electricity that medicines are not available in hospitals and terrible things that having But as the head of UNICEF said. Freshly, for the last 12 weeks, the lot. The whole international community has had very limited access to most of the ground, So their concern is that what we don't know could be even more disturbing than what we do know.

Especially when we're thinking about how dire all of this sounds and UNICEF's warning about how this may be affecting Children there? Well, we don't again. As David said, You know, it's it's so locked down and impossible basically, for aid organizations to operate there safely. They've had to evacuate a lot of there.

Ethiopian military says it killed 15 Tigray rebels

"Now, and the tension between the government in Addis Ababa and the northern province of Tigre is continuing. You'll recall that armed conflict in early November broke out between the Ethiopian army. And the T p L F T T Dry People's Liberation Front government declared victory within a month. Now, the army has announced the killing and arrest of more civilian and military leaders off the TPLF. That speak to Martin clout. Now who formerly off this parish and is an expert on the Horn of Africa. Martin, What can you tell us about this announcement late last night by the Ethiopian government? Does it sound plausible? In terms of what they're saying? What are they? What are they telling us? They've done Well, yes, it does. I mean, it's it's clear that they have made a number of arrests and people are being killed. I mean, including some really quite significant figures like a very well do who was a former president of Tigre and the chairman of the Tigre People's Liberation Front. One thing one has to remember is that this is now a guerilla war Thebes. Gran's withdrew when McCallie fell. That's the capital of the region of Tigre. They withdrew to the mountains. There's now heavy fighting going on across the region with Eritrean forces from the north on damn horror militia. Backing the Ethiopian forces from the south and from the east on this is now a full scale war that is going on, which is frankly bogging down. Everybody involved. So when you when you talk about the war continuing, of course, the rhetoric coming out of Addis is that they have resolved this. Well, I don't think we have to take that terribly seriously. I mean, to be honest with you that the thing you need to ask yourself is why is it that all independent journalists apart from one Belgian, who managed to get in have been banned from the area. There aren't even embedded Ethiopian journalists up on the front. Onboard. The situation sounds frankly, pretty dreadful. What is what more given that the beginning of the conflict? We We weren't really able to get through too many people into dry where there there have been all sorts of reports of destruction of cultural artifacts. And so on. What? What more do we know about that? Well, I've just been able to stand up for what happened at the church off Mariam in in Axle, which is one of the holy sites off. Ethiopia. It's the site at which the Ark of the Covenant is believed to be kept, which could may only be seen by a monk. A guardian monk on dawn, the 15th of December What happened was there was a confrontation. Troops entered the compound, which they're not meant to do. There was a confrontation with the people inside. They were forced outside into the square and up to 750. People were shot by the horror and the Ethiopian troops outside on. That is not the only one. There's also now There's a report, which has been actually confirmed by the Ethiopians themselves that the oldest mosque in Africa, then Ajusshi mosque, which was built by the companions off the Prophet Mohammed in the fourth century, was also shelled. Theise. You can say this was done because the two grands built trenches in the area. But these these are really serious damage to the cultural artifact. And on top of that you have a number off factories, which were built in in a number of towns, which have been either trashed or demolished. And many of them are not being looted and that their contents taken to Eritrea.

Ethiopian government begins offensive in Tigray capital city

"Reports from northern Ethiopia say the capital of Tigre province, Me Kaylee, where dissident tplf forces are under siege is under heavy bombardment from the government army. A V. Bamford has the latest details. Aid workers into gray have confirmed a declaration texted to a news agency by the TPLF leader that medically a city of half a million people was being shelled. Ethiopian military has said it intended to seize the city within days, but would seek to avoid harming civilians. The Federal Army earlier said it had advanced to a Gula lesson 20 kilometers from Italy. Ethiopian government under Prime Minister Rbf Med has rejected ceasefire demands from the African Union, saying it is engaged in a police action. The T p L F has rejected Mr Abbas blueprint for a more centralized Ethiopian state. Iran's leaders have promised to retaliate following the assassination of the country's top nuclear scientists, which they believe was carried out by Israel. The Supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, called for the punishment of those responsible for the killing on Friday. President Hassan Rouhani also said that vengeance would come, but only when Iran decided that the time was right. CR Bashar Dylan is from BBC Persian Already the hard liners inside Iran are taking this as a sign of weakness and even blaming The government of Rouhani himself for showing weakness and emboldening the will they believe to be the Israelis and carrying out these attacks, which is not the first one of its kind. Despite the Oh the bombastic language from hard liners inside the country's screaming for revenge. What they are doing is really waiting it out till a Joe Biden administration comes in in 50 days. Germany has those all sides to show restraint following the assassination of the Iranian scientists. A German former foreign ministry spokesman talked to the need to avoid an escalation of tensions. He said it was important to preserve the scope for nuclear negotiations.

"In the North has rejected Ethiopia's prime minister's ultimatum to surrender. By Wednesday and has pledged to fight on the U. N Security Council is due to hold its first meeting to discuss the conflict later on Tuesday. It's going to be a virtual meeting The Ethiopian government says its tanks are preparing To attack the capital Makelele on so the U. N. Is calling for protection for the half A million civilians there. Restrictions on the Internet and telecoms means it's been very difficult to speak to people in the region itself. We have spoken on occasion to the government itself in Addis and also people who have fled over the border. Refugees who are over the border in Sudan. Let's now speak to an Ethiopian from Tigre as he's Abdulahi, who lives here in the UK Ondas. He's thank you for joining us. You've got family across the country, but I understand you have people both in McKinley on also an accent as well. Are you able to get any information out about how they are? Thank you for having me know a zoo, You know that The For the last three weeks is the war has started. There is a blackout off Internet and telephone and electricity. So definitely like all the weapons and cigarettes. I haven't been able to establish any contact with my family was in all disintegrate regions that particularly and other absolute cheery as well as Molly. Yes, pretty tough because we have heard reports from the government from government media. I think of Shelling in Axum fighting in adware as well. And now this threat to move onto McKellen. That's interesting. The government when they're talking about, it's a have told the people to in effect, throw off the tplf and look after themselves. But how half a million people are supposed to do that? I don't know. What do your fears of the coming days. Concerning Michaela and your people there. I mean, as you said, I mean, it stated clearly that the government is first off is behaving and acting like invading forces. It's not just treating Tregoning Its own people, but also the war that has been wished against the ignorance and particular people is not just only between the two great government and the federal government. But there are other actors in the ground like, for example, Eritrea on also it is allegedly saved you a supporting withdrawn and other technological equipment to enable the government To achieve it is a girl's so basically it's also go on the record to threaten the half million inhabitants off locally. That is unless they flee and leaves their city. Their X squared to bombard them. This is this is against the international law so differently. It is the We're all frightened, and definitely the international community is doing very little while this war has been which, uh, on the treatment for the last three weeks. I mean, I suppose at least the U. N Security Council is doing a meeting. But how much that helps on the ground, of course, remains to be seen. Now, when you came on the program you're explaining, you know you wanted to be introduced firmly as an Ethiopian You happen to be from Tigre s. So we're not sort of presenting you. You don't want to be presented as somehow a degree and separatist, And that's an important point to make. One thing that I want to ask. Your opinion on is people's attitude to the TPLF because we had the government on the program yesterday, twice. We've had two ministers on They said this isn't this is just Lauren order. This is an internal matter of law and order on Also, we are being welcomed our troops something welcomed with, you know, with gratitude as they move into Tigre by local to gray and people. Do you think that that rings true from what you know about sentiment in the region? No, definitely. I mean, I heard one of the minister that you conducted an interview self yesterday morning. And definitely that is a totally alive because first of all, this war is not should not be confined as ah, War between the federal, the Great Region and the federal government. This has been going on. In all other each year for the last 2.5 years. I mean, this is just only the last war that has been a wage against the immigrants otherwise, in the sudden off European like aroma, so many atrocities being committed. The last one was 34 months ago when the singer a general Henderson was killed. And 10,000. This is the record been stated by the government of Egypt him. That's about 10,000, or almost being imprisoned, and many prominent or Amo opposition leaders are in jail. So this is the lot. The only reason that the world is watching and listening to this is that the tickets are putting up a fight because of their history. The recent history there are managing. They have all the power and the organization and the military military. Come ability to defend themselves. Now that this is this is interesting because we're having to judge this from a distance. We don't know what's going on. But when, for example, the United Nations made an assessment that said that what they feared was going to happen is that you would end up with a kind of a guerilla war of attrition because the there are enough to gray and to our armed who are well trained. The terrain favors them as well. Do you fear that that is now what's going to happen? Is that a credible prediction? Hopefully doesn't go. It doesn't reach that level because from yesterday from the leader of the two great region, the bloating of McKay has a stated that yesterday the ground forces have money managed to sustain heavy defeat on three fronts Integrate. So now we are we have up. We're hopeful that we might We might be able to deter the aggressors and prevail and come out victorious. It's going to be difficult to see how that happens, particularly if we don't know what the news is. But many thanks indeed. And Obviously best wishes to your loved ones as well.

Way start with situation in Ethiopia. The fighting in the northern Tigre region, the state broadcaster in the country, says that national armed forces federal forces have killed Over 500 of the TPL effort to Grand People Liberation Front fighters as the conflict continues to deepen. The claim has not been independently verified. It comes as reports suggest hundreds of deaths on both sides. There is pretty much a media and information blackout in the area communication very hard. On DH. One thing that we're hearing as well is the possible involvement of Eritrea. This from a Lula Solomon, whose director of the Tigre Media house in the U. S s o. He is in America. But has he we asked, being able to get information out of the region. I have family back home into their actually living in the border area right at the intersection ofthe Sudan in Eritrea right now they are using Sudanese. Telephone number because there is no telecom, Internet and electricity service integral region is blocked by the federal government off the army. So I'm trying to connect with my family once went on. Actually, my family left their homeland took right now They are in Sudan right now as we speak, so I have information off course. About what's going on. The Eritrean government is already involved since my family and the city where there are living in is attacked by a heavy artillery's from the Eritrean government. Now the situation in Ethiopia is actually extending towards regional conflict. Now it's becoming international conflict to grey and perspective. Lula Solomon, director of the T great Media, House, aid agencies in southeastern Sudan, a warming warning of the humanitarian problems if large numbers. Of Ethiopians flee from Tigre, at least 6000 Ethiopians are reported to have crossed into Sudan. That's according to the Sudanese government. Well, we put in a call to the federal prime minister's office in Addis Doctor who is a minister there and we ask him can he confirm the claim that you just heard? The Eritrean forces have been shelling across the border in Tigre. The law enforcement operation that's going on in. Ah region now is being conducted by the National Defense Force, and there is no any Intervention off foreign forces and including the Syrian defense force and material can be a good ally development at life or Ethiopia, but never for two across cross the border or I accumulated adamant forces around the departure was Ethiopia because it is a sovereign country and our internal Problem's internal conflicts can be solve its internal mechanisms, and we don't need any foreign intervention in terms ofthe military operation, and the military operation is taking place on Ly with Egypt and National Defense Force. Okay, well, it's good to get your understanding of what's happening. I asked because we have spoken to people whose family members have fled Tigre. So have fled Ethiopia into Sudan because they say they are being shelled by territory and forces. You say that isn't happening. If it is happening, Would you now ask the Eritreans not to shell Ethiopia? That's the next step, isn't it? Definitely because you know there is a sovereign country that doesn't need any intervention anyway, by normal means, and I can assure you that we can request their Italian government authority reinforce, not across the border. And I am 100% sure, currently that no forces shelling they chip in border and they will never share the border even in the future Stock. Toby Keith, Tourism minister from the federal prime minister's office, We went on to try to pursue the question about what exactly is going on in Tigre as regards casualties, but unfortunate line dropped at that point. Used a BBC World Service, a prominent female activist and lawyer who was who has actually heavily criticized human rights abuses in Libya for many years now, specifically in areas controlled By the Haft are Libyan National Army has been shot dead, sparking outrage. Human rights groups have condemned the killing, and many of her supporters, family and friends are left wanting answers. Understandably, to tell us more. We're joined by Haman Saleh. Libyan senior researcher for Human Rights Watch on DH. She's talking to us from the Middle East. Welcome to Newsday. Shocking used this. We're hearing this execution happened on the streets of Benghazi. What more do you know? So I've been, I think that the execution obviously will have a very chilling effect on activism in general that is already mute and marked by self censorship in Eastern Libya agree or disagree with her method of publicly naming and shaming Hannan was a very brave voice, one that was silenced forever. Yeah, I mean, it happened in broad daylight, apparently on 20th Street, which is a very busy artery in Benghazi's city center. She gave voice didn't see two female victims of violence, and and she was well, she wasn't afraid to show it either. Was she tell us what she did when she was alive? So Shannon had frequent appearances on Facebook live. She preferred to use that for to disseminate her information. She discussed widespread violations alleged violations by members of armed groups and officials in eastern Libya. She accused people of widespread human rights violations, including financial Corruption and also assault and rape of women. I am reading that just in footage she posted on Facebook just before she was shot. She could be seen speaking into the camera while seated in her car, criticizing the armed groups close to have tar saying. She has been threatened. So right up to her death. She was still putting that message. Out there. What happens now? What? Likely heard of the people behind this killing being found brought to justice. I mean, clearly the country is in a state. Or flux at the moment, but is there any likelihood of that at all? So unfortunately, as you may know, this is not the first such crime in Benghazi Last year, a sitting MP also a woman, Samson was also abducted from her home. In a very violent manner, and she remains missing even though authorities at the time promised an investigation. But that really did not come through. Until now. I have the same concerns with this case, even though she is quite handlebar. Asi was quite prominent in Libya. She was a very brave voice. She was somebody who did not, You know, hold back from naming names. But, you know, Mike, my concern is that you know authorities, even though they promised an investigation will simply not prosecute anyone given that you know, these people or these armed groups seem to think that they are invincible. Because so far they have enjoyed a very high level of impunity. Allison. Thank you for joining us, and we wait to see whether the U. N will launch an investigation. This time you say they didn't the last time this happened, but we thank you for your time and be update. Hanan Sela, Libyan senior research of the Human Rights Watch. This is news day. BBC World Service. We're going to talk about the connection between chimps and Uganda and Cove it We've been talking about the vaccine throughout the program as well.

Ethiopia to replace Tigray region leadership as forces clash

"Let's move to Ethiopia, which is currently technically in a state of civil war. On Thursday, the Ethiopian military and officials in the northern Tigre region accused each other of instigating a civil conflict that has seen fighting between government soldiers and troops loyal to the regional administration. In a televised address early on Wednesday, Ethiopia's prime minister Abbiamo accused the local government of attacking federal troops, and he said the region's ruling party, the Tigre, People's Liberation Front, or TPLF, were traitors. We're going to the National Defense Force that has been in the bunkers for the past 20, plus years defending its people and the country by paying heavy sacrifices with its blood and flesh has been attacked this evening in Michael. And many other places by traders and the force they organized. The army has been attacked from behind by its own citizens, and many have been martyred, wounded and properties destroyed. This force of destruction has been engaged in many counterproductive activities for the past many months. The regional president of Tigre. Debra Montgomery kill, has described the actions of the military as an invasion were joined on the line out from Addis Ababa by William Davison. He's a senior analyst on Ethiopia for the International Crisis Group. Thank you for joining us. What's the latest that you're hearing how many casualties in the fighting? Well, actually, the number of casualties of fatalities is one of the things that is not clear. There is still a communications blackout across Tigre. But there are certainly casualties being reported from the hospital visits and outside the thing. Essentially, we have an active conflict, a CZ you've clearly described in the introduction. The fighting has been concentrated in West too great so far has bean incursions by the federal military from West agree that Paul is the horror region on horror regions. Forces have also been involved. To some extent. I think it's worth noting that degrades main supply route would be through West a great and into Eastern sedan reported on so that perhaps explains the focus of that fighting, and we've also seen small search skirmishes around medically. To grace capital and in the last day or so, that is involved air strikes by the federal military to try and take out military installations around metal. And that really indicates a major problem here, which is that part of the federal military appeared to be siding with a great vision. Can you explain a little bit of background to this? Why has this situation been allowed to reach to this state of hostility? Well, I mean offices that there's a very long political background to great region has a long history of autonomy to the central government, as well as being involved in central politics. More recently, TPLF was the preeminent party, the ruling coalition that lasted essentially until 2018 when Communist at the Army came to power. No off. He took power on the tplf. They lost a lot off their federal positions and power. And there were all sorts of accusations traded back and forth allegations of destabilization as we've heard what's on the TPL aside. They said that they were unfairly targeted prosecutions by the federal government and also discrimination and marginalization More general Then there was the creation of a national ruling party by prime minister Beyond the TPLF objected to that, Andi they sat it out, became formerly part of the opposition this year. This is evolved into an electoral dispute at the constitutional disputes. The federal government tried to extend all government terms when it delayed elections due to covered 19 Tigre opposed us. They run their own poll and that lets the federal government describing Tigre is government is unlawful and takeaways Government government, saying the federal government had overstayed its constitutional mandate. That is the buildup to the conflict We have now and William, you're seeing evidence now that the military in Tigre is siding with the Local government. Is that right? Yes, That's right. Like I say, information blackout. I can't be sure of exactly what's occurring on the ground. But yesterday, the federal government says that the military the air force to try to take out missile launches on missiles. Now that is Ethiopian military hardware. So that suggests either elements of what is called the Northern Command a very powerful units of Egypt's military that has been fighting the war on manning the border with Eritrea that suggested either elements Since there have defected or otherwise under the control of the secret leadership. Otherwise, the air Force would not be bombing those installations. This is a major piece of the puzzle in terms of the balance of power here, and it suggests that we could be entering a protracted conflict that is a conflict that is likely to escalate, it could destabilize Ethiopia and its armed forces it could bring in Eritrea. And it could generally destabilize the entire region. This is why dialogue and some form of talks is absolutely in Paris, and

"Of course, we are the official partner savings to the Bennis Bush's superbike championship. And of course, on the way to motor GP over which was racing early on this morning. Well, there's no will have no spoilers here for those of you who are patiently waiting for its to be happening and watching the the actual reviews and the actual steam later on. When you have had some good times they. So we've got plenty of action still to come up. Next will be the pep on fourteen and Moto teams just so mine. My name's Doug Martin long. Siamese as ever throughout two thousand eighteen is Keith Charles Colin Jackson website editor of multiple radio also here with us this weekend. Well, gentlemen has been some fantastic action in the paper. Forty Emoto teams and ready Kiko just summarize your thoughts on yesterday's opening encounter. Who was an interesting because some trials, one, the pit bike on four k. Greenies died. Solomon clouds one, the most team Tigres. Now Simon clouds mathematically hasn't won the championship yet. Realistically he has because he's sitting here to competitors are not in the races this weekend, but the there is a battle on top of that championship between Jamie king and avocados, twenty points between them as a championship is going down to the wire. And I wouldn't wanna call who would win, not because Jimmy is draining champion. We courage as the one chasing Jimmy Downey, here's twenty points and you are nothing to lose. Hopefully we're going to get a good finale later on today. It's probably the closest ship that we've got to decide head today while we're still a few championships to decide head today and well, the paper military teams, they provide some fantastic action. Kiko mentioned father and son winning in the same race. We think it may be the first time in a very long time when the two clauses have had victories in price categories together. So it's great to have them doing so well, but also some more action to becoming. Then there's two mixes of two different championships makes into one which to another sort of element to the championship. We should say. Indeed it does. As you say, it's it's one of the more open classes to have such. I don't say radically different bikes to have many different styles on track at the same time it. It certainly creates interesting racing, and of course they all have different advantages. The motor, the motor team bikes are a lot quicker in a straight line. However, on a tight twisty, circuit like this tattoo, all it really does play into the pit bikes favor and was seen this weekend actually with the pit bikes really dominating the qualifying sessions, and even the races where they've severe locked out the first six, seven places. Yes. Well, the show say, ending really shooting the pet bike on fourties this we can. We've had merger teams getting a lot closer to the pit bikes in recent race meetings mostly because the circuits have been a bit quicker a bit further failed. And also it's just a bit wider study have more to really racism into whereas tight circuit in which to go to. So quite joy. They've got two different two different. Race meetings for this particular jump ship. And as we curly wasting to head out onto circuits later, one meant just as a minor for those who've only just joined us. Thank you very much for.
