covers a take a look at the top stories here it out there saudi arabia's eval says it's intercepted seven missiles fired from yemen the rebels say they carried out the strikes which targeted airports in the capital riyadh as well as three other cities saudi authorities say one person was killed and two others were injured at least thirty seven people many of them children have been killed in a fire at a shopping center in russia's siberia region three thousand kilometers east of moscow more than sixty people are still missing the calls of the far the city of
command is still not. an adult film star who alleges she had an affair with u.s. president donald trump in two thousand and six says she was threatened with violence after she first tried to go public with the story stormy daniels whose real name is stephanie clifford told c.b.s. sixty minutes she was accosted by an unidentified man in twenty eleven who told her to leave. joe watkins is a republican political strategist and a former aide to president george h.w. bush and he says the allegations will have little impact on donald trump's supporters. interestingly it should but it doesn't even the evangelicals in the united states have given him a pass on these allegations from other accusers and as far as his base is concerned these are just allegations meant to the real him from his primary agenda so with his base i don't think he suffers at all i think he does just fine with his base of
course it he takes a moral hit from the standpoint of how he looks in america and how he looks of the international community but from the standpoint of hurting his base hurting him with his base or impacting the election in two thousand and twenty i don't think this impacts the election in twenty twenty in any kind of a big way is very different than any other political candidate we've had the past because we know that in the past any one incident like this would derail the candidacy of a person gary hart ran for president in one nine hundred eighty was running in one thousand nine hundred seventy for the one nine hundred eighty nine when they should be president and he was the railed by the allegation that he had a mistress and we know certainly the president clinton had troubles in the one nine hundred ninety s. and other politicians as well have been hurt badly and in some cases of their careers have ended because of these kinds of allegations but not so with donald trump that hasn't really affected them from that standpoint so i don't suppose that it's going to affect him seriously going forward unless the special prosecutor decides to to use mr cohen's. background as some kind of leverage.
egyptians head to the polls in a few hours from now and the election that's expected to return president of. the vote comes seven years after the revolution that ended the thirty year long presidency of hosni mubarak jamal looks at some of the promises sisi has struggled to keep during his time as egypt's president. although opted for the has since he was only named president in june two thousand and fourteen the former army general has been in control of egypt since july the previous year when he led a coup deposing the country's first democratically elected president mohamed morsi since taking power sisi has made numerous promises and pledges to the egyptian people in a bid to win their support first he vowed to defeat what he described as potential
violence in terrorism. i call on all egyptians to take to the streets to task me with preventing the potential violence and terrorism that threatens us. in reality however since sisi became president attacks and bombings appear to have increased dramatically across the country i saw which did not have a branch in egypt recruited fighters and began killing soldiers and police officers in sinai but the violence was not limited to the peninsula car bombs in central cairo and alexandria are testament to cc's inability to deliver on his promise of security another pledge made by the army general was to build a national road network that would connect cities and help improve road safety i would i will build a world class road network within one year that will connect all of egypt. four years have now passed not only does egypt have an extremely poor road network according to the world health organization it ranks amongst the ten worst countries for road safety with deaths being an almost daily occurrence. c.c.
had also promised to drastically improve the economy and increase living standards there was initial hope when his government organized the two thousand and fifteen international economic conference billions of dollars worth of projects were announced until now though very little of those have been achieved even the much hill construction of a new administrative capital has seen little to no development similar to the pledge of building one million new homes with hundreds of thousands of egyptians still either homeless or living in slums one promise that was fulfilled by c.c. was the expansion of the suez canal however the promised revenue from this project has not materialized in fact after convincing the public to help fund the project through investment bonds the government's own figures show revenue from the suez canal has actually dropped as a result of the decline in maritime chuffing says he has been president for four
years and in power for five in the early days he had promised to transform egypt into a world power the reality is that he presides over a country where thirty percent live below the poverty line and the vast majority are struggling to remain just above it his critics doubts that another four years will bring any significant improvement. i'll just get off. of the egyptian government's been cracking down on the media in the run up to the election hundreds of websites and blogs have been blocked that is and as your pal reports that hasn't stopped the online conversation. it appears more egyptians have been busy discussing football and the arabic version of the t.v. program the voice then the presidential elections on monday but security certainly became a trending topic over the weekend after an attack on egypt's second city alexandria on saturday now at least two people were killed including a policeman in what the ministry of interior has called an assassination attempt of
a local security official prime minister sharif ismail says such attacks will not affect the election process but security is high across egypt's major cities and more than thirteen thousand polling places and it remains a central issue in this campaign many twitter users outside of egypt are talking about the same thing with me sharing some critical pieces from the economist in the new york times which focused on the security dimensions of the election in the new york times asking why president sisi appears to be worried if the election is supposed to be a lock now the president has adopted a more threatening tone in the final month of campaigning focusing on unspecified enemies while the economist says that sisi must provide security and jobs for young people if not there's a recipe for more upheaval down the road and while they like many of c.c. supporters say that his firm hand has prevented egypt from collapsing in recent years they say he should respect the constitution and ignore his most sycophantic supporters who want to amend the constitution to let him rule for life moves can
you tell us where did give me your lives are you most and while a number of famous actors and singers have helped spread cc's message to nearly sixty million eligible voters to come down and participate many egyptians are wondering if their vote will even matter the hash tag why are you boycotting the elections was trending on the eve of the vote after seven political parties and one hundred fifty opposition figures denounced the process as a farce calling for a boycott one of the most popular posts from the former sisi supporters. compares this choice whether to boycott or not to a. football match he says if the results are known in advance and the referee is bribed the fans would certainly boycott the match so we'll have to see if these security issues and the perceived lack of choice will have an impact on voter turnout remember that the last time c.c. ran nearly half of eligible voters did turn out giving him nearly ninety seven percent of the vote but in speaking to. his associate professor of middle eastern
politics at the university of oklahoma and he says this election lacks credibility i think in an ideal world there would have been more candidates but candidates that were not threatening to president c.c. some of those who emerged were in deep threatening such as former general sami i-man and homages freak who had run in the two thousand and twelve election and so they were eliminated neither in different ways either intimidated to withdraw or arrested and in some cases and so then they were left with no one and so this individual stuff and was so who no one really at heard of the leader of that party who we believed to be in cahoots with the security forces and so on was put up so that it could be an election with two candidates or at least look like an election in the two thousand and fourteen election the official results reported
a forty seven percent election turnout but of course the rational thing to do if one is an egyptian voter when the conclusion is known ahead of time is to not participate and so we'll all be looking at both the official and the unofficial results i'm highly skeptical that anything approaching the previous result forty seven percent will be achieved in the next three days. now to syria where more than five thousand rebel fighters and civilians are being moved from eastern guta to opposition held parts of the northwestern province of it led state media says more than one hundred thousand people have left the area since a humanitarian corridor was open and government forces a close to controlling all of what had been the last rebel stronghold close to damascus and it follows a month long offensive just one group al islam is holding out there believed to be close to a deal to leave the area. well the thirty people have been arrested in be

referring to i still say the biggest latest salute the self-sacrifice unique to soldiers ready to give their lives for the nation and their fellow citizens a life given cannot be lost it transcends hardship and unites us it calls to us to believe that life is stronger than death to believe in heart. over the rise of the march for our lives campaign say saturday was the largest gun reform protests in a generation but while people were demonstrating across the united states president trump was silent and he was at his holiday home in florida and that's raising questions over how much of an impact the movement will actually have on legislation and gallagher ripples out from washington d.c. . by any measure the march for our lives protest was a success hundreds of thousands of people came to hear from those whose lives have been touched by gun violence for decades my community of los angeles has become
accustomed to this violence by. around the world the refrain of never again was heard loud and clear but while crowds gathered close to the white house president donald trump was in florida his twitter account has remained silent on the issue although the white house issued a statement that in part said we applaud the many courageous young americans exercising their first amendment rights keeping our children safe is a top priority of the president's on friday the president signed a bill that includes legislation that aims to strengthen background checks. moves to ban stops which turn rifles into fully automatic weapons are also on the way campaigners say it's not enough the fact that nobody is discussed in the bill they don't say the word gun once. what causes all these shootings what's the one thing to tie everything together there's no specific mental health problem that makes all
these shootings happen is the weapon and the fact that they aren't taking any action towards it is proof that we need to keep on going my name stephen merchant marching from my coach chris hicks and organizers hope that this is the beginning of a movement but translating never again into significant changes will be challenging former astronaut mark kelly whose wife survived an assassination attempt says it will be a long road ahead i would warn them not to get discouraged you know this is often two steps forward and one step back. guy had the opportunity to talk to a few of them yesterday and they have a plan and this is this is not the last you're going to see these kids the protesters that came here may be gone but the list of demands remains banning assault weapons extended magazines and raising age limits will be challenging while the republicans remain in power and the national rifle association continues to wield so much influence the next revolution say organizers will be at the polls and al-jazeera washington small cell celebrities and even the australian prime minister
