and for exhibits. the political crisis in italy deepens the prime minister designate fails to form the country's first populist government. and this is al jazeera live from london also coming up the former leader of the fox votes in colombia's historic presidential election but the front runner is a staunch critic of the peace accord with the former rebels came down their own indicates he wants a summit with donald trump to go ahead u.s. officials cross into north korea to make preparations and big money bribery and match fixing part two of the al jazeera investigation that's triggered an inquiry at the top of cricket.
we began and italy where most of political wrangling have failed to produce a new government prime minister designate just. says he's officially giving up on for my administration after the president rejected his coalition's choice for economy minister. as you have already heard i have rejected the mandates to form a government that was offered to me by president motorola i thank the president for giving me that mandate on may twenty third and i thank the people from the main political forces and legion in my ear from the five star movement and mattel salvini from the leak to have put my name forward i can assure you i have used maximum efforts at attention for this task and i can assure you that i have worked in a climate of maximum collaboration with those political forces. the president says you matter as being quick to defend himself saying he had to block the euro skeptic
candidate to protect the economy and the savings of all italians. i knew this would not have a popular decision i accept the prime minister proposal despite the fact that just happy content was not elected. if that if i have been informed that the parties now want an immediate election it is a decision i will make after we discuss it in parliament i will take action in the coming hours. let's get more now from al-jazeera nadine barber who can tell us more about this issue with the economy minister what was the sticking point was it was a real real clash it went right down to the wire all day on sunday we've been hearing from so vini insisting that his preferred choice of economy minister who is a chap called paolo vona he's eighty one years old he had been a minister before but he wasn't very well known and he's very euro skeptic now so the motto sylvie was saying that he must get his choice in the known
reticence of president was that. mr sevan or had been outspoken in suggesting that italy should leave the euro currency saying that it was a doomed project and that according to president in the last half hour he has actually addressed why that wouldn't have worked he's saying he didn't block the formation of a government but he clearly has drawn a red line saying that mr saval no would have spooked the markets even further there's been a lot of turmoil of uncertainty since the election in march of course and he was suggesting that somebody like mrs of owner in such a strong position in one of the largest economies really would have rattled people in brussels in the financial centers around the concert material salvini has come out just in the last half an hour and said well doesn't not prove what's the point
of having elections if it's the markets that decide on the personnel and many of his voters will agree of course many people who didn't vote for the so-called populist coalition will be relieved that somebody who had a firm project of leaving the euro why. it's actually part of a government but it leaves the country now looking behind fresh elections the president saying he's not going to decide in a hurry but the but moto so we need says that he wants that to happen when indeed any after all this time we'll she thought we were getting somewhere and it was going to be settled but now it doesn't look like it doesn't look like they'll be fresh elections is that why we're going it's really hard to tell i think the odds are on because these two groups between them had the most seats in parliament the most likely combination to form a viable government and the facts of that they haven't been able to do so and they've just thrown their nominated prime minister has thrown in the towel suggests
that it's extremely unlikely that anybody's going to get the numbers required in parliament that's what it's all about and so we've been in this situation before it's really people being called back to to vote in several months time there is a caretaker government. agent aloni has been heading votes for some while. bartz he is seen by much of the electorate as part of the old guard people did want to change what kind of government emerges perhaps later this year is hard to find a quote that involve or thanks very much for making some sense of that now polls close in a few hours in columbia's historic presidential election the first since a peace deal was signed with the far and twenty sixteen front runner evander k has vowed to undo aspects of the accord which he sees as too lenient on the rebel group let's go now live to our latin america editor you see a new man who is in bogota so we're talking about the peace accord here who say i have the rebels who indeed signed up to that quote have
a now when i am voted. you know that's one of the most interesting fascinating i would say aspects of this election certainly historic and that is that thousands and thousands of former rebels have spent their entire lives fighting the system trying to sabotage elections year after year actually went out and voted for the first time in their lives and among them was. better known as the number one commander of the farkle rebels who was the one who helped negotiate this peace deal he said he was it was a magnificent moment he said it was one for reconciliation here in colombia but also an election that will determine whether or not this peace deal the start peace fail can survive after the elections. he's the most politically inexperienced of all the candidates the conservative has an enviable advantage he's the protege of colombia's still immensely popular former president of i don't. like
his right wing mentor duke is a staunch critic of the two thousand and sixteen peace accord reached with colombia's far gravels which many complain was too soft he told al-jazeera he would start by making a fundamental change. is that we want the leaders responsible for crimes against humanity to be obliged to tell the truth about what they did to compensate victims and to go to prison no stronger part of the big. but that wasn't the original deal and many feared changing it could read night a war that lasted for more than fifty years. on the opposite extreme of the ideological divide is former. colombia's first truly competitive left wing presidential candidate. he says maintaining peace and promoting social justice are his priorities through his feared by the business sector and others who predict
he'd turn colombia into another venezuela. the problem with petrol is the governability would be very complicated he would clash with the establishment but do columbus passed with war and the implementation of the peace accords. but there are other options including with the us moderate former mayor said he would have had a bill and sent a right wing former vice president his man back to the us polls indicate neither is likely to make it to an expected ground off but then lately polls have been wrong. this is colombia's first presidential election since the fark laid down its weapons but the army is nevertheless being deployed nationwide to guarantee security here they're not expecting any trouble but that's not the case in other parts of the country where there are still rebel groups at large. colombians have several choices the question is whether or not they will choose a new president who will stay on the current course of peace. you see in human i'll
just see. and we can talk again to. elections being seen as being faroe or of any concerns that may have been some sort of vote tampering. and so there are concerns historically there have been problems irregularities with elections here and this has been no exception we have heard that at least three mares have been suspended by the electoral authorities for trying to pressure voters to vote one way or another also the buying of votes stuffing the ballot boxes is something that happens especially in remote small towns but also we are now hearing from the candidate the left wing candidate. who is now claiming that he believes that there is an effort underway to deprive him of victory by what he calls an adjustment of the a software the electoral software he has provided no proof so far of this but it
certainly does raise concerns that the outcome could be ques. especially if it is very close to be interesting to see what does indeed happen with lucy and even their life pres. us officials are reported to have crossed into north korea to discuss details of their on off june the twelfth summits south korea's president in says north korea is committed to denuclearize asian and its leader kim jong un is looking forward to meeting donald trump moon has been giving details on exactly what was discussed during his surprise meeting with came on saturday andrew thomas reports from seoul. the surprise summit the second meeting in a month between moon j. and kim jong un was arranged just hours in advance it was held in secret this footage she was released only afterwards by the two governments it's north korea's with excited commentary attached. so. what's clear is that the sudden
into a korean summit was a direct response to donald trump's letter canceling the june twelfth north korea u.s. summit the leaders of both korea's want that back on littlejohn's. we have agreed that the two top summit should be held successfully and that our journey to the korean peninsula as denuclearization em perpetual peace should not be halted the president moves with kim jong un once again committed to denuclearize ation and that he had told him that president trump in return would end hostile relations and cooperate economically this was not a meeting president trump was told about in advance but in washington tonight he hinted he could yet be traveling to singapore a lot of people are working on it it will be along very nicely so we're looking at june twelfth inching up or that hasn't changed. and it's pretty well analysts the splits on who's driving the agenda but all of
a person who can start a war and the last say forty eight hours to get maybe more of the fear that dormant prompts an instruction is going to cancel the summit and then this if you lead to a new escalation of tensions and probably of what if this year has been decisive others think it's kim in the driving seat they think his commitment to denuclearization means u.s. withdrawal from the region to not unilateral north korean disarmament in exchange for the lifting of sanctions i think it's the north koreans driven disengagement. well good for strategic nuclear deterrence they've decided that they can push forward on negotiations not only with the united states but also south korea and reengage with china they have a clear pathway for whoever is driving the june twelfth singapore summit is looking a lot more likely than it was it seems like longer but it was only three days ago that the u.s. north korean summit was suddenly called off since then we've been on what some have
called a diplomatic rollercoaster roller coasters run along cranks someone designs them plans the twists and turns this ride is altogether different and a lot more serious under thomas al jazeera so. let's get more now from mike hanna who is live for us in washington like thursday a lot going on behind the scenes just how advanced are these preparations for the summit now. well there is a advance team on its way to south korea to begin to prepare for the summit should it take place to singapore of course however is a much more significant meeting that is going on at present and the state department has confirmed that a team of u.s. negotiators has crossed into the demilitarized zone for talks with their north korean counterparts now it's very significant looking at the makeup of these teams the u.s. team is headed by song king he is a former. to south korea and he was importantly part of the six
nation talks that took place over a period of years it fell apart in two thousand and nine but on the other side on the north korean side their chief negotiator is the deputy foreign minister chose someone and she of course was also part of those six nation talks so you've got to negotiators talking to each other who know each other very well who know the issues very intimately haven't been involved in years of negotiations on the north korean crisis in the past so this is a very significant meeting taking place in the d.m.z. and present it shuttle to last through monday possibly even tuesday and it appears that what is happening there is that the agenda for the proposed summit on june the twelfth is being drawn up and this is critical because without any clear agenda without an agreement by both sides on an agenda is unlikely to be any summit good
to get your update than my kind of speaking to us from washington d.c. . still to come on i'll just say there are far right supposes in germany to stage a protest against refugees in berlin and not saving the rhino the world heritage site where thousands have been killed by poachers. was god. hello there we've had hundreds of thousands of lightning strikes every year of her the last day or so and the vast majority of those have been in the west as well as lots of thunder and lightning we've also seen very large hail some very damaging winds and a lot of heavy rain as well these thunderstorms are going to continue rattling their way through as we head through monday and into tuesday again some of them are likely to be very very heavy towards the east it's generally a lot quieter weather wise here quite warm as well we're looking at
a maximum of twenty seven in warsaw but it's not going to be completely dry this is a streak of clouds here could give us some rather lively thunderstorms as well for the other side of the mediterranean it is quieter here thirty four degrees not too bad there in cairo but towards the west of what more cloud hair that's all linked to what's going on maybe europe so some heavy thunderstorms here too for about there it should be dry in our maximum temperature getting to around twenty degrees and no major changes for us as we head through the next day i'll say for the central belt of africa plenty of showers here as you would expect many of them from ethiopia all the way across towards the west and i think some of the heaviest ones are likely to be parts of nigeria and down through cameroon i think that's where some of the showers will band together and give some periods of more prolonged. the i.
economy minister the president insists he has to protect the interests of civilians . polls close in a few hours in colombia presidential election the first since a peace deal was signed with the fock in twenty sixteen from on the eve. as vowed to undo aspects of the accord which he sees as too lenient on the rebel group and south korea's president has been giving details on his talks with north korean leader kim jong il and saying kim is committed to denuclearize ation i'm looking forward to meeting donald trump al-jazeera as a vestige of units has exposed a match fixing from a criminal gang who claims to have bribed international cricket just to perform the much fix correctly predicted how players in two test matches would perform it says some points during the game david harrison reports. al jazeera went undercover posing as wealthy investors to investigate corruption in cricket.
that is how serious we are an e m a now is a much fixer from mumbai he told us we could make huge sums of money from betting on his information. both the allegedly fixed matches were played in india and involved in england and australia the governing body for world cricket the international cricket council said it was taking off findings very seriously and has launched an investigation. into an intelligence sources confirm that menow works for a powerful criminal organization called the de company. it controls most of india's huge illegal betting market said to be worth sixty billion dollars a year from now told us players have been paid to underperform at certain points during the two matches and only two minutes you will now. have he says the fixes all settings were arranged for india versus england in two
thousand and sixteen and for india australia last year was the best kept setting me years later. letting go of the setting or get the field or i'm a little bit out in his predictions were accurate in both matches our investigation also exposed three former international cricket players who were prepared to take money to fix matches one of them is has son reza the former pakistan star he agreed to play in the tournament set up soley for match fixing. are you interested then would you play. to sri lanka players given their color to go until our locker or t.v. would also play in the band that's that's not the fake tournament was planned by dubai based gourab raj kumar blubbered problem was told to be like puppets exactly yes you are just going to go to court. now what do you say to the
millions of people who watch cricket innocently believing it's fair competition they spend good money watching cricket and you are actually corrupting the game is so corrupt and get. an hour and all three players declined to comment raj kumar said al-jazeera had invited him to act in a movie for public entertainment only david harrison al-jazeera london and you can watch the full programme on al-jazeera investigations cricket match fixers which airs in just over half an hour twenty g.m.t. on sunday. think palestinians have been killed by israeli shelling in gaza it happened east of the city of rafa in the southern gaza strip israel's military says the men were armed members of the group islamic jihad more than one hundred have been killed by israeli fire in the gaza strip since mass protests broke out in march. and two boats will leave gaza this week with palestinians who need urgent
hospital care try to break a blockade imposed by israel which has prevented medical supplies from getting into the territory and patients from leaving hospitals have been struggling to treat thousands of palestinians have been wounded by israeli bullets cheering recent protests when a smith reports. gaza is blockaded by israel on all sides see included but this week two boats loaded with patients who need hospital treatment and students with university places will try to breach israel's sea blockade which begins sixteen kilometers out in the mediterranean the passengers have a strong determination to break this siege whatever the circumstances whatever the challenges whatever the obstacles that would have been that would be posed by the israeli side gaza's hospitals are full of patients who need urgent medical treatment there are those injured in two months of protests and longer term cases
at least now i have sixty five of them already admitted those who want to go in the model for turn but there are many other cases of cancer and open heart surgeries and many other complicated neurosurgical cases of the day the cases all of them need to travel abroad because of shortage of personalities induced by the israeli blockade in gaza strip and why can't they travel abroad because the bulk of our seed must of time and these patients should probably in time you can say to a patient why when cancer come back after three months as he will deteriorate and you have too much complication they cannot wait life long waiting for this product up in. the posts that will be used to being kept hidden organizes fear israel will try to destroy them before. for they leave the port in reality the boats are not going to get any further than israel's merits on blockade which is as tightly and harshly enforced as the land blockade but at least those on the boats will highlight again the open prison like conditions that there are here in gaza to prevent almost anyone from leaving burnitz with al jazeera gaza
palestinian president mahmoud abbas has had his hospital stay extended the eighty two year old was expected to be discharged from the s.t. showery hospital on sunday where he's being treated for a long infection hilarie main there for an eighth day he'd been abated for what doctors had initially said when medical tests following a half century. a protest against refugees has been taking place in berlin and thousands of supporters of the far right party alternative for germany are asked to march through the capital the party swept into parliament last year on a wave of anti migrant to sentiment and is now the largest opposition bloc. is in berlin. a highly vocal confrontation here in berlin but not a violent one alternative for germany held a large rally outside first of all the. main train station then marched through the streets to the brandenburg gate behind me where they held the actual demonstration
of the speeches from the party leaders but it was a message which the protesters in them or many more thousands of them on the streets of berlin and members of the in terms of germany they tried to drown out the message of this party it first came into the parliament in the last elections and getting old in ninety six they are now the main opposition party in germany they have overtaken the green party and they're beginning to challenge the social democrats to a part of the grand coalition so there is a movement here towards trick stream right of hope for this movement a movement it was essentially by the large number of refugees will those millions that came in. on the open border policy so this is a problem that's going to remain here in germany the fact that in the book in the start you're hearing paranoid racially xenophobic anti semitic remarks and you know
hearing them little rallies on the streets of berlin this is a problem that's going to be causing ructions within the grand coalition the social democrats want to keep a liberal attitude towards refugees but those parties trying to tighten up the borders restrict immigration two hundred thousand. that year so that's causing attention even within the grand coalition. we're going to see more cities like this and we're going to hear more from the old guard for germany because now essentially they see this growing maybe the demographic supporters from east blue collar workers the unemployed and the all the people in eastern germany who fear their communities are being changed forever and who fear for their future so we'll see many more of these demonstrations and many board these confrontations. eleven people on now known to have died after cycling macoun or made landfall off southern amman
