6:01 am
and told them we had no money left, they told us to exchange our shirts for a cup of tea we meet african refugees trying to escape hardship in american countries. the situation remains tense across israel and the occupied palestinian territories, where there has been several stabbings and shoot ings, since october 1st, '44 palestinians have been killed and 7 israelis. israel's cabinet has been meeting as the shoot to kill policies failed to stop unrest. let's look at the figures for those killed on seat. a jewish settler shot dead an 18-year-old in hebron for allegedly trying to stap him. israeli police say the palestinian was killed before doing harm. an israeli police woman shot
6:02 am
dead a 16-year-old after suffering a hand wound. she attempted to stab her after asking directions. a third palestinian youngster was killed in hebron. israeli forces shot dead a 16-year-old, this time in east jerusalem, again for allegedly attempting to stab a soldiers. under the same circumstances, a 23-year-old was shot dead at a checkpoint in ramada. we have extensive coverage. mike hanna joins us from west jerusalem. we also go to the occupied west bank. tell us, hoda abdel-hamid, what the sense is there among the palestinians. >> in the occupied west bang you have a sense that tensions are increasing since the wave of
6:03 am
stabbing came on this side. it started in nablus a few days ago, and here, behind me in the pedestrian terminal of the checkpoint a young palestinians, ordering to the israelis, tried to stab an israeli border guard and a bomb expert searched him, while witnesses in the terminal say the young boy was not doing anything, just walking behind the israeli soldiers when the soldiers maybe panicked or suspected him and turned around and shot him. there has been a lot of tension in nablus and hebron between the jewish settlers and palestinians. in hebron, maybe they were the most intensifying between jewish settlers who went to the house of the young man who was shot yesterday morning. you said earlier that there was two sides to the story in that. while they threw a petrol bomb at the house, and in nablus you
6:04 am
had the same thing, you have increased tensions. there is a worry about the wave of stabbing that has been happening in israel, jerusalem, and not in the occupied west bank. that rose the tension. the fact that every attack has a counter attack and palestinians are worried that the jewish settlers act with impunity, sometimes under the eyes of the israeli police or army, and no one is overcoming them, no one is brought to justice, and most of what they do goes unpunished while, as we have seen lately, any palestinian suspected of anything, whether he has done something or not. is, at the moment, shot dead. >> okay. on that note, hoda abdel-hamid, we'll cross to mike. thank you for the time being. mike, the israeli government approved a new law allowing the police to search a person and belongings even if not suspected of carrying arms.
6:05 am
tell us about this, mike. >> once again this law enacted or approved by the cabinet will go parliament and no doubt be passed. in reality it's been a policy on the streets for a long period of time. not just in the weeks of a wave of unrest that we have seen time after time. police officers stopping palestinians, insisting that they lift their shirts, take off their shoes. it is becoming legislation, it is something that has been the reality of streets in occupied territory for a long period of time. >> mike, at the same time we understand the chairman of the u.s. joint chiefs of staff has arrived in israel. what message is he carrying from the united states. >> well, this - this is an important development unnoticed in the ongoing crisis.
6:06 am
this has to do with renewal of defense aid. earlier this year in protest against the deal with iran, that the u.s. was attempting to reach, binyamin netanyahu suspended all talks about defense aid. now, annually, the u.s. gives israel close to 4 billion in grants. now talks about this year's grant was suspended because, as i said, a protest about iran. we understand now that the talks have been resumed. the reason why the head of the joint chiefs of staff is there is to kick start the negotiations. significant, but what is a player from this, that is important as well, is that it signals an easing of what has been a fractious relationship between the united states and israel and between the leaders of these countries in particular. what we see here is the beginning of a change na that
6:07 am
friction, and this could many a change in relation to the pressure the u.s. will put on israel. general that visit, this resumption of talks is significant on a number of relevance. >> thank you for that update from west jerusalem authorities in the philippines ordered more evacuations as alternative on cove u crashes into the -- cop u -- as typhoon koppu crashes into the country. flights have been cancelled, power and communication snapped in several places. the typhoon is expected to bring winds of up to 175kph are to the north-east of luceon island for up to three days. jamilla is joining us on the telephone to tell us where you are and what you are seeing. >> right now we are in a province known to be the biggest rice producer.
6:08 am
the center for rice production in the philippines. it has all been turned into swamp. we were heading to an area where the typhoon made landfall. we were met with flash floods. we have to turn back. now we are trying to find a safer ground where we can stay for the night. the situation is different for communities that are trapped at the moment. this is a province, but other places rescue ears are not able to enter the areas. the death toll is at two at the moment. there's a lot of concern about safety and security for those that have been dropped. the water is up to the chest level at the moment, and nal now there's worry that flash cluds build go -- flush floods will go
6:09 am
down. there's worry about security and safety. >> how has people prepared for the typhoon, and what have authorities advised people to do in order to prepare? >> well, the president spoke to the public the other night warning of dangers of the typhoon. this is certainly the local government and communities seeming to be more prepared because of the experience of highian, where more than 7,000 died in central philippines, there's a lot of preparation and worry. now there's so many families that have been evacuated, but th worry, really, is for those communities up to now that are trapped in those areas, that they cannot reach. that is an area we hope to go with the rescuers tomorrow and hopefully we can see that here.
6:10 am
>> richard is here with the weather and will tell us what cop u has for the philippines. >> it's a different beast from haiyan. if you look at the satellite, the first thing you notice, there are two whether systems. often when you get into close proximity, you get an effect that influences one another's position. this will head up and away to the pacific. the main concern is cop u. it will be influenced more by the high pressure across the northern parts in terms of its movement. let's take a look at it in detail. there the system is it moving away from the philippines, it hit as a kat grit four storm, making it a super typhoon. it's a 19th category 4 or five system, which is a record.
6:11 am
sustained wind, 160 k p.r. remain in force until 0600 tomorrow. the movement is not all that fa.. this is the problem. it had a lot of time to feed off the warm waters and will move slowly, getting up to the southern points of taiwan. it's picked up so much moisture that it will rain and rain and rain. rainfall totals could be up to 1,000, to 1,000. phenomenal. >> thank you. >> in egypt voting has begun in the first parliamentary election since the overthrow of mohamed mursi. the poll is the final step in a transition to democracy, and the 2-stage process will take weeks to complete. we have more.
6:12 am
campaign posters are back on the streets of egypt. a variety of names and faces are running for parliament, political differences are non-existent. there are no opponents of the leadership on the ballot paper. a stark contrast the last time there was an election. following the uprising, egypt witnessed its first free and fair election in which a plethora of parties contested. a few months later military rulers used a court order to dissolve parliament. shortly after the coup, the muslim brotherhood party was dissolved and the movement described a terrorist organization. the army promised to hold parliamentary elections. more than two years later the vote is held. the political climate is far from free or democratic. tens of thousands of activates
6:13 am
-- activists are behind bars, dozens of journalists are in gale and the media is tightly censored. as a result, several parties, including the april 6th youth movement. including mubarak, boycotted the poll. that was pivotal are boycotting the poll. for president abdul fatah al-sisi, it's important that a new parliament is formed. they continue to face criticism over a lack of democracy in egypt. as well as a crackdown on opponents. a new parliament presented as proof of a political process. it will be deeply flawed with most of the major parties not having contested the election. let's take a closer look at this election. 27 million egyptians are eligible to photo in sunday's phase. people will vote for the 596 members of parliament. 448 will be elected as independence. 120 representing a party.
6:14 am
28 are presidential appointees. any candidates that ran and won in the 2011, 2012 general elections cannot take part. last time 47% of votes went to the treed some and justice -- freedom and justice party, rooted in the muslim brotherhood, but now it's outlawed. leaders killed or gaoled. a former editor of a newspaper in egypt said voters are disillusioned with the protest. >> let's look at the turn out in the expat election that took place yesterday and the day before yesterday. the turn out is almost 2%, which is an all-time low. this is telling about what is happening today and tomorrow in the first phase of elections domestically. when you don't have a relation between the number of voters costing the votes and the turn
6:15 am
out, you don't have serious elections. most of the people, most of the voters do not believe in the seriousness of this process. when the parliament - and i think it's - it's something unique when all candidates become all candidates running for the parliamentary elections, the only programme is to give up the powers assigned by the constitution to its own institution in favour of the president, then most of the people have the right to believe this is not serious. >> more to come in this al jazeera newshour, including activists in india express hore and discuss following the rape of two children in the capital. >> all those i remember clearly died. i barely remember my sister's

6:21 am
>> in iran, engineers must begin a big dismantlement history, involving the moth ball of shipping fuel out of the country, all of which will be done by the end of november. ir the deal has plenty of vocal critics. >> the deal does not make peace more likely. by fuelling aggressions with billions in sanctions it makes war more likely. >> it may be difficult. inspections by the international atomic energy agency would be key. warning of potential for cheating and disagreements. >> it does not resolve the wide range of issues where we have a big difference. we are going to have to continue to put pressure on them, through
6:22 am
the international community. >> recent footage on state television showing underground tunnels packed with missiles and launches have not eased concerns. the u.s. say it may have breached a u.n. system: for all involved there's a great deal at stake. the next few weeks may shape the legacy more than anything else. police in india's capital arrested five people suspected of raping two children in separate attacks. a 5-year-old and a 2.5-year-old were raped, raising concerns about the authorities ability to stop sexual attacks a police forensic team works on site. another grim crime scene but

6:31 am
joining us live from cambridge. i'd like to get your thoughts on the news that came out an hour ago where the prime minister binyamin netanyahu says that the israeli government is going to pass a new law allowing forces to physically search people and its belongings even if they are not suspected of being armed. what do you think of that? >> the israeli people's response, including this element indicates a lack of options in terms of the revolt. and a number of tools used have been tried on another occasion. punitive demonstration, and the israeli army, that it was of dubient efficiency regardless of the law. there has been restrictions on
6:32 am
movement, state significantship. most have been try the in different ways, all on a larger dis scale, indicating that the israeli forces are coming up against a brick wall in terms of finding ways na from their point of view can be used to repress the rebellion. >> you said it's a rebellion and you called it a revolt. there has been a lot of debate as to whether it's an intifada, and some called it as a knife intifada. what is your fake? >> personally, a lot of palestinian youth activists on the ground talked about the need for there to be a wider network, organizational network to expand the base of the revolt that is taking place, for is to be something in the realm of an intifada. the search for that label can be
6:33 am
unhelpful. it can avoid looking at what has been happening. there has been a steady level of violence inside the occupied territories, palestinians throwing stones and molotov cocktails against the forces and settlers, and violence from the population and the israeli army in terms of arrest raids and injuries and fatalities, what is happening now takes place in that context. in addition, when people look at the first intifada and the second, there's not clues, about the there's different events as to what it may or may not look like. a helpful chronology is to look at event where the palestinian youth dominated initiatives. you look at the event of 2011, with the protests, march 15th protests, the protests of national unity. demonstrations, palestinian hunger strikes, and what is happening is that palestinian
6:34 am
youth took the initiative. >> let me ask you, what was calling it an intifada mean in the context of any sort of political resolution, if there is any at this point. what do you make. reluctance of the authority to define it as such. >> the palestinian authority not only doesn't want to call it an intifada, but wants to thwart and are actively seeking that to take place, as it has done for a number of years, and, indeed, their entire strategy vis-a-vis the coma toed individual peace protest. there's a significance in the name. it's down to the activists on the ground to define where they want to go with this, and against them there is israeli
6:35 am
not wanting to see in expand further. >> thank you ben white from cambridge guinean's president has won a second term, avoiding a run off with his main opponent. the electoral commission said he received 58% of the vote. the main opponents came in second, with 31%. we have this report. >> reporter: with smiles from ear to ear, supporters of guinea's incumbent president celebrated saturday night. the electoral commission said he beat his opponents by a large margin. >> i'm happy with a result. i'm a guinean, i'm proud to be guinean. >> not everyone is happy with the way things turned out. the runner-up threatened to boycott the election, changed

6:37 am
they were involved in the electoral process. i hope the opposition, will come together and accept the democratic process. >> the west african country, one of the poorest in the world, has a history of post electoral violence. at least three were killed. killed in pre-election violence in the run up to the vote. >> to me, the most important result was a participation rate. 67%. it shows the people believe in the process. >> the education ministry delayed the start of the academic year until next month, to ensure student safety. many are worried that street protests could lead to a period protests could lead to a period of unrest thousands of african refugees try to cross illegally every year.

6:40 am
for many, the journey ends here. police tracked down on foreigners. we've caught 280 illegal migrants since the start of the month. we repatriated them. we'll continue to catch and deport them. until there are no more illegal people in the country. business is brisk for eduardo, smuggling from the safe house. they continued to flee from conflict. they said he would continue to answer god's fall slovenia is using its army to maintain control because of thousands of refugees arriving from croatia, the asylum seekers fleeing from war in the middle east and asia are on their way. they had to recrude through slovenia after hungry closed its

6:42 am
it became an election issue in the vote-rich french-speaking province. where the attack adds equated the niqab with oil leaks. >> canadian... >> other similar issues came up. stephen harper said they were stripping citizenships. they had dual nationality. there was announcement of a tip line so people could reported and conservative candidates described as barbaric practices. >> the prime minister and his political party deny they are driving wedges, raising issues. to opponents the tack things are obviously. this liberal party candidate came to lebanon in the 1980s, election scientists defaced. they were indicated not as vandalism, but a hate crime.
6:43 am
>> when you create a division, you know what, maybe you can gain a bit in the poll. in the end, not good for the future of this nation. both opposition leaders strongly criticized the government for emphasising the issues, promising to reverse some measures, including the tip line. opinion polls show support for some of what the conservatives are doing. will it mean votes on election day - perhaps not, say analysts. >> we ask almost 1,000 people every day what the most important issue is for them in the election. >> and, you know, most people are saying the economy. >> in the end voters will despite on monday whether what seems to be singling out muslims is a way to be elected in canada. if so, it's a different country than it used to be guatemala's presidential candidates are battling it out a week before the run-off vote.
