7:07 am
president obama. having said that, justin trudeau is in favor of the keystone pipeline and in favor of the trans pacific trade deal signed a couple weeks ago in atlanta and puts him at odds with a democratic administration that might make it in the white house a year in november. clinton or sanders we will have to wait and see. the other thing that he is promising to do is pull canada jets away from the u.s. led coalition which is bombing i.s.i.l. targets this the middle east and this distinct change there, del. >> before i let you go resounding defeat for steven harper and conservative party, what was the reaction? >> prime minister harper we understand now was tipped off many weeks ago this was likely to happen and in his concession speech last night in calgory where his constituency or writing as they call it in canada he was gracious in defeat. take a listen. >> friends, our country is one

7:14 am
stoon steenkamp's family and the house is described as a three-story mansion. a wet day for people living in the southwest and let's talk about a front to the northeast and extreme new england and more coming up, in the next half hour and what is probably our biggest troublemaker for the next couple of days in a broad area of low pressure sitting over the southwest with a front and you can see what was tapping into moisture from the pacific and all of that coming together, we do actually have a slight risk of strong storms with that today with wind and hail being a threat and cannot rule out an isolated tornado and more than that the fact over the next couple of days we get a lot of rain out of this so today that is kind of centered over parts of new mexico and looking a little bit more of that and slowly drifting its way more eastward over the next couple of days so i would say texas really gets the core of this.
7:15 am
this puts it in motion for the next three days and northern parts of texas wouldn't rule out four, five, six inches total and some of that moisture eventually starts to move its way in the mid was west a little bit more not the only feature bringing moisture today and a front in the northeast and really moving more through the great lakes but could bring the next round even for snow in the nor northern part of the country. >> we know texas could use the rain and thank you. what has become almost a daily event in resent days a palestinian man shot and killed today after stabbing an israeli soldier during a protest in the occupied west bank and they were outside of hebron following the arrest of 35 palestinians by israeli authorities, more protests are planned across the west bank later today. al jazeera's carl pen hall is live for us in jerusalem, carl, good morning, what else do we know about the latest stabbing
7:16 am
attack? >> reporter: well stephanie a number of incidents, in fact, a report in the hebron area and the one you mentioned during protests west of hebron and that almost sits on the green line, the generally recognized border between the occupied west bank and israel. there were violent protests there and according to the israeli military one of the protesters tried to stab an israeli soldier and was then shot in the head. what makes it a little bit different from other incidents of this kind is that it seems that at the point that protester was shot then crowds of fellow protesters surged forward and were able to grab his body and take it back to an ambulance belonging to the palestinian red crescent, often what happens in these kind of scenarios is israeli authorities will get an attacker's body and withhold it
7:17 am
for many days before it can be prepared for burial and also in hebron another significant incident south of hebron the israeli authorities are reporting there a 50-year-old israeli settler was run down and killed by a car and no further details of who may have been driving the car but again deaths on both the palestinian side and on the israeli side in the hebron area and can only surely go and fuel the flames of this violence, stephanie. >> carl, another development the u.n. secretary-general is set to arrive in the region shortly, what are his aims? >> well, his first initial aim will be to meet with the prime minister benjamin netanyahu. we also understand that he is continuing his visit tomorrow as well and we expect him then to meet abas in the occupied west bank city of ramallah and put out a five-minute video message ahead of the visit to try and
7:18 am
prepare the way. once again he is reit -- reiterating a two-state solution and says extremist on both sides trying to stir the violence and urging israelis and palestinians to seek nonviolent way and one hand he is talking about the palestinians and say i understand frustration but violence is not the way but on the other hand saying we understand your security concerns but, you know, just cracking down is not the way either, we have to leave violence aside and look for political solutions and the question is anyone going to be listening to him. >> that is the question and carl is in jerusalem and thank you. top military officer is in iraq this morning and head of joint chiefs of staff and joseph is there to get a report on i.s.i.l. and down played russia expanding air strikes against i.s.i.l. into iraq. iraq's prime minister previously

slovania dealing with a surge in asylum seekers from croatia. >> migraines stranded for days have been allowed to pass through and saying it could soon deploy the army to guard the border to limit the influx of refugees. >> eased restrictions on the border between serbia and croatia and where al jazeera is and these countries had a daily quota for refugees and are they dealing with more than they expected at this point? >> well, stephanie, it's hard to say. actually croatia said that it's possible to receive 10,000 refugees per day and interior minister who is here actually
7:23 am
came over from the capitol to the refugee camp on the east of the country, he said that croatia can accept 10,000 people per day, 5,000 they can hold here in the camp and 5,000 they should send to the western european countries. but the only way to go there is to close the borders for refugees is the slovania and they said they can accept only 1 1/2 thousand people per day so if you just count the numbers you can see that problems are on the sight. croatia constantly sending refugees to slovania by buses and trains from here from this camp but there are 2 1/2 thousand people right now at the border between croatia and serbia ten miles away from this place and they need to empty this camp which already consists of around 3,000 people in order
7:24 am
to receive all the refugees which are waiting on croatia and serbia border to enter the country. >> with send troops and police to the border you have to wonder how long they will continue to allow refugees to flow through. how are they coping with the circumstances, we are watching the pictures, it is cold and rainy and windy, how are they coping with these circumstances? >> well, it's a very hard to cope with the circumstances and i'm shaking so you can only imagine how all the refugees can handle the situation. it's quite cold and actually ten degrees celcius and it's cold and people coming from warmer countries and simply not prepared for this kind of weather. so i was inside the camp a couple of hours ago and they are all covered with blankets and
7:25 am
some of them are coming on foot only in socks so it's a muddy and wet ground and you can only imagine how it is for all these especially for women and children to cope with this situation. they were given food and drinks inside the camp, also they can receive medical assistance if they need it and many of them actually need it. and some of them are transferred to a nearby hospital where they can receive medical help and they are staying here a couple of hours and then since i already mentioned that thousands of people are awaiting to enter croatia they are just transferred further to slovania with buses and trains. >> from there they continue their desperate journeys and on the croatia-serbia border and thank you. ron redman the spokesman for the u.n. high commission for the refugees for the baltic region and joins us from athens and ron i understand the situation is getting worse, what are the new
7:26 am
numbers about the refugees arriving in greece via sea? >> that's right, del, since the beginning of this year more than 500,000 people have come across the narrow waterway between turkey and greek islands in the east. we passed that half million mark overnight. the total now just arriving in greece since the beginning of the year is over 502,000. so the numbers are enormuos and winter is coming and borders are threatening to close and more and more coming across the islands and leading to tragedies and some deaths. >> i want to talk about the deaths "new york times" reporting that 71 migrants sophisticated in the refrigeration compartment of a truck, surely these stories are
7:27 am
coming back to the people that are trying to escape and yet they continue to come, how bad are the conditions in syria that they would risk their lives once they crossed the mediterranean? >> that's exactly right. the dangers that people face in syria are carefully balanced against the dangers that they faced on this route dealing with smugglers, with traffickers and unscrupulous people and choose to make this very dangerous journey. the situation in syria itself has gone from bad to worse, i talk to refugees everyday about the situation there. they can't stay because they say their family is in danger. they have lost all income. their children are no longer in school. there is no healthcare available. and even in the surrounding countries like lebanon and jordan where you have got millions of refugees, those
7:28 am
governments are also overwhelmed. lebanon for example, the refugee population makes up 25-30% of their entire population and those refugees are not getting any help either to stay there longer so they are on the move as well. >> ron redman for us in athens, greece and thank you very much, the numbers are terrible and yet we see the conditions where the people are freezing. >> and to ron's point i heard reported that some refugee camps are in such dire straights some syrians are going back to syria and making the dangerous return journey to a dangerous country. separated for decades and now reunited by only for a few hours. >> talk about the emotional reunions being made nearly 60 years in the making. the trial that is out of a movie the good fella for one of the most infamous crimes in this nation's history.

tonight. he is given the rare honor of addressing both houses of parliament. he'll have private meetings with some members of the royal family and meeting with the object significance labor leader. mr. corbin promised he will bring up china's poor record on human rights. that could be an awkward encounter i think the government was hoping to avoid. in the evening, back to buckingham pam lass where the queen is hosting ingrain door. all but one will be there, prince charles is staying away. there's been no official reason given for that, but we do know that he is a long time friend and supporter of the dalai lama. a big ceremony to kick off this visit, after which they'll sit down to discuss why china was really invited here, to invest big in britain. >> on the business of the business of running country, what else is going to be on the table in these talks this week?
7:37 am
>> >> britain is looking for multi-billion dollars deals ting struck, high speed rail to technology and investment in education and financial sectors. that is what britain needs from china and that is why they've had this all out charm offensive to woo them. china are looking for a closer english speaking ally in europe, which could allow them greater access to transatlantic field in the future. they like the way britain has broached the issue of human rights, bringing it up behind closed doors rather than making big public announcements, but that's an approach that's been a little bit too subtle for rights groups here. it's a relationship developing, hopefully a special one that that's what they're wanting, but it could be a very unequal one.

7:43 am
getting a lot of dropped dimes on who was involved. >> his defense team calls the government witnesses untrustworthy turn coats, telling jurors when necessary they'd lie to each other and they'd lie to save themselves, once a liar, always a liar. among other crimes, including arson, extortion and racketeering, he is accused of helping strangle a suspected informant to death with a dog chain in 1969. his partner in that grisly murder, jimmy, the gent burke, played by robert deniro in goodfellas. the real burke died in prison in 1996. >> most of the people involved in the case were killed, bumped off, or died a natural death. he's one of the last survivors. longevity in the long run did him in. >> the obama administration said
7:44 am
80 companies have reduced carbon emissions. it is part of a push by the white house to show progress ahead of international climate talks later this year in paris. the u.s. is one of the world's largest producers of carbon emissions. >> justin true do extinguished himself from prime minister stephan harper on that issue. while harper lobbied the obama administration to approve the key stone x.l. pipeline, true do focused on the need to cut emissions. with his party in charge, climate activists hope canada takes more of a lead on cap and trade and is more virally conscious when approving new oil pipelines. paul bledsoe with the climate change advisor in the clinton administration joins us from washington to talk about this. good morning. harper is called one of the bad boys of climate change, missing emissions change targets, for
7:45 am
example. how big is this victory when it comes to the climate change issue? >> i think that the harper loss, combined with the abbot loss in australia a few months ago sends a signal that anti climate change action stances are losing political strategies, even in western countries that are rich in fossil fuel resources. the political tide is clearly turning against those who will not take serious action on climate change and the voters are speaking. >> australia and canada combined represent only about 3% of climate emissions total globally, are these victories more symbolic than anything? >> well, those are the emissions they burn domestically, but canada has very large deposits
7:46 am
of oil sands, seeking to export to the united states and elsewhere. the australians have some of the largest coal reserves in the world that they're seeking to export. these are still very fossil fuel rich countries who have taken less than totally responsible positions regarding climate change action when their countries had conservative governments. i think that republicans in the united states had better be on the lookout for the climate change issue in 2016. i think that voters are increasingly -- have little patience with politicians who are not willing to take action to deal with climate change. >> as you say, canada is one of the top 10 emitters, also one of the top five oil producing nations, but it's also very oil dependent. when it comes to key stone x.l. and the oil sands in alberta, described as a particular polluting form of extraction, how is true do really different from harper? >> well, we'll have to see.
7:47 am
a lot of people believe that there was an opportunity for harper to do a number of other things related to greenhouse gas emissions in canada to foster a deal on the key stone xl pipeline, but the attitude of harper was always rather intransigent on the pipeline. it's pretty clear that true do is going to take a much broader approach to climate change and canada's role in international discussions and in bilateral work with the united states and the obama administration. i look for true do administration to take a wide range of actions rewarding climate change, and that may or may not involve changing the deal on key stone. >> paul bread sow, really appreciate your insights on this issue this morning. thank you. >> here in the u.s., a different type of claims change. it is getting colder, nicole mitchell actually talking snow again?
