5:13 am
northeast and christians to the south, unless the international community brings peace to this country. now, whether that was some sort of shock tactic to try to get more sympathy for this administration is unclear. but there is certainly a situation right now whereby the people of the central african republic are absolutely confused and terrified by the unfolding events. >> reporter: andrew thank you very much indeed and correspondent andrew simmons in central african republic. coming up, in the news hour we had to a refugee camp in chad home of christians and muslim whose fled the war and andrew is reporting on that. and in force again and tens of thousands new crane demand resignation again of the president. and japan says happy birthday as the emperor turns 80.

5:15 am
>> reporter: and peter sharp is live from moscow and i'm sure it wasn't easy for them, peter, any idea how they found their time in jail? >> i think maria had a particularly difficult time and the inmates were prejudice against her and she was suffering physical attacks from these people who had condemned this punk protest. it got to the extent where she personally requested basically solitary confinement so she could protect herself from the attacks from the other prisoners. as you say as a result and the sentence is two years and finishing for her after this punk protest in the cathedral in february 2012 really protesting about what pussy rights saw as the russian orthodox and the

5:19 am
amnesty. when they get back the documentation they can go to the federal migration service and get the passport stamped and then they will be free to leave the country. you can imagine they are in prison or out on bail since september, a frustrating time if they want to get home to their families for christmas but as i say i think this is going to be unlikely. >> reporter: thank you, peter sharp in moscow and christmas is just around the corner and protesters say they have no intention of stopping the mass rally over the holiday period and showed solidarity with 100,000 of supports and jennifer glass caught up with one of them in the capitol. >> reporter: she joined the protest december 1st after seeing police crack down on demonstrators and he will stay here until the government agrees to their demands.

5:21 am
shed blood. no, we prevent it and we showed to the entire world we are pro-european opposition. >> reporter: there will soon be move to europe to appease protesters. >> translator: the government's mistakes make the opposition stronger and need to correct our mistakes in the next few days so the situation will calm down. >> reporter: the people on independent square will not be easily won, after a month here they want to see concrete changes before they will consider leaving. jennifer glass al jazeera. >> reporter: protests in the capitol trade back with russia and people accusing the government of signing away the state's gas utility company as part of a deal to join the russian-led custom's j unit and

5:23 am
parties for the february election will be taking place. the protesters don't want to see elections taking place because they don't trust the protest. they want a nonelected counsel to be in place and to overlook a bunch of reforms. the election commission has already been through a situation like this because the protesters have announced their intention over the weekend. the election commission says candidates or their representatives were unable to make it into the stadium and can lodge a police report next to the stadium and well as register over there. we have heard from the election commission that more than 30 parties have already registered so it would seem protesters have not been able to achieve their objectives. now the protesters have said over the weekend that they will not be resorting to violence. they don't intend to break into the premises but they did say
5:24 am
that they do not want the election to take place and that whoever wants to take part in the election won't have to go past it and that is what they have been doing, camping overnight outside the venue, making their way in from various other protest sights around the city to try and intimidate people who want to take part in the election. the top protest leaders has already said because the prime minister is clinging on to power, protesters have to come out and chase her and they will continue to chase her until she is dead or until she leaves office. >> reporter: the storm knocked out electricity for hundreds of thousands of canadians and the mayor says it's one of the worst storms in city's history and ice brought down trees and power lines and icy roads are blamed for three deaths, many travel plans for the christmas holiday have been wrecked in central and eastern canada which leads us to rather nicely to a look at some of the weather in the
5:25 am
continental and united states. here is richard. >> yes, ice storms are some of the most dangerous types of weather you can experience. see the cloud fading out and this storm resulted from the contrast in temperatures between the very warm air feeding from the gulf regions and the air driving down from the arctic and here is what happens is you get snow in the atmosphere and falls down and down to a layer and melts and turns to super cool water and freezes on contact with any surface and takes five millimeters of ice on a tree to bring it down with a huge mass driving up on pylons and trees. that has gone through but there is talk it could take like 72 hours for toronto for the power to reestablish and that means with the cold nights in the
5:26 am
coming days it really will be nasty indeed. the se sooner the power is restored the better but it's pushing away and heavy rain on the eastern sea board is clearing away and residents of toronto it will remain cold for some. >> at least it's a white christmas and thank you very much. you are with us on the al jazeera news hour, a growing wave of suicide in military turkey and covering up why young people are killing themselves. living with an ever-present dangers, the hazards of unsafe buildings in bangladesh and look up to this man who may get bowled over the indiana pacers continue to rolling this time over the boston celtics and andy is here with the sport. ♪

after a demonstrator in chad was killed after a demonstration with the government and at least 40 others were injured. the u.n. is describing the situation in the south town of boar extremely tense and over run by rebels. u.n. released these pictures showing a crowd of refugees outside its mission there. the u.n. has been evacuating staff and injured civilians. and about 15,000 people still inside the compound and trying as you may imagine to stay safe from the fighting. >> the thing we need most is we need the people who are causing all of this to get everything under control. as i left our base and went to boar, yeah, there was a lot of looting, a lot of gunshots, a lot of dead bodies, and very,
5:30 am
very out of control youth. >> reporter: well the united states is being evacuating the people from boar and we have more from washington d.c. >> in coordination they air-lifted u.s. citizens who presented themselves to the u.n. camp in boar and lifted in helicopters to duba and specifics are not made available for deliberate reasons and this was on saturday. there was an effort to air lift that was abay doned when four service members were there and are recovering from injuries but the safety is of utmost concern to the united states and releasing few details. we can tell you the state department says more than 380 government officials as well as private citizens have been taken
5:31 am
to the region to nairobi and 300 from partner nations have also been evacuated. we know president obama is continuing to be updated by government officials on the situation and they cau president and he is on vacation in hawaii and effort to seize power through force will result in an end to the long-standing support from the u.s. and the international community. of course we know too that the secretary of state john kerry has appointed donald booth and said it's the u.s. position that sudan and south sudan not slide back into violence as the u.s. believes this is something that would be detrimental to both sides and they encourage both sides to resolve differences through political means. >> reporter: that is kimberly
5:32 am
reporting from washington d.c. and let's go live to douglas johnson who is a south sudan expert and author. dr. johnson it seems to me pretty much by the day we are seeing different players coming into this conflict. initially it was characterized as a dispute between the president and his former deputy but are we see agree number of grievances all coming together at the same time? >> i think that is correct. what you -- what we have got is on the one hand discontent within the party, the splm which is what he has been part of and the other people like his widow and other people in duba. but you also have an unintegrated army, an army that has been bill up of veterans of the spl, former government malitia and other malitia
5:33 am
brought in at different times since 2005. so as well as other armed groups that have developed during the last few years. so i think it's going to be very different to identify who -- what all the grievances are and who can be negotiated with to try to bring this fighting to an end. >> reporter: and dr. johnson when we hear toby lanza from the u.n. saying there are groups, big groups he says, of uncontrolled youth taking part in looting and violent activities as well, is he referring to members of the malitia that you just described or are we seeing people simply taking advantage of a break down in any kind of law an order? >> well, those are the possibility of the latter. my own feeling is that given the resent violence it is probably already those groups that are
5:34 am
armed and were organized. i haven't heard any reports of general sort of break down of civilians attacking civilians, of neighbors, attacking neighbors. that certainly was not the case in duba. the people killing people in duba were men in uniform and if they were regular spa or some other unit i'm not quite sure but certainly i've heard in duba of neighbors protecting neighbors. we don't yet have an ruwan the da situation of a general sort offensive jan mayhem of neighbors and civilians fighting each other. >> reporter: it appears from what you say, dr. johnson, and you were party to drawing up the agreement that ended years of blood shed there and appears from what you say with so many different people involved in the problems in south sudan to reach any kind of consensus did you
5:35 am
have any idea of a way forward here? >> well, you don't ask academics to solve the problems of the world. we are not very good at that. but i would say if there is a military assault on board, this is going to make things more difficult. if the spla is able to move into positions around boar and then try to begin to negotiate with the commanders in boar itself to be able to bring some sort of truce there, then i think perhaps the fighting might get contained. similarly i think it will have to be a truce in the bentoo area rather than out to seoul. the pity is the 1983 war began with the sudan army assaults people in boar and i hope the

spla doesn't make the same the army did back then. >> douglas johnson thank you very much indeed, talking to us from oxford in the uk. ♪ the final member of the russian punk band pussy-riot has been released from putin and we have been talking to the media and she and maria were sentenced to two years in jail of hooliganism after protesting at the main cathedral and soon after her release the 24-year-old says she wants to pursue a career in human rights. okay, let us return to central african republic where an advisor to president jota-dia suggested dividing the country in area, one area for muslims and the other christians, the
