4:00 pm
what iranians are feeling. >> hello there. i'm barbara serra. this is the news hour coming up in the next 60 minutes. working to prevent a climate stage disaster. the meeting in paris ahead of crucial environmentals. the lab at the center of a doping scandal closes down. and aung san suu kyi insists she will call the shots in myanmar despite being barred
4:01 pm
from presidency. in seattle, made from a million pieces of chewing gum. >> the latest on the growing corruption crisis involving german football over alleged bribes to host the 2006 world cup. >> we're making progress, but we still have a huge amount of hard work ahead of us. those are the words of the french foreign minister as they prepare for the most important climate talks. foreign ministers from around the world has spent three days trying to settle on a deal blueprint. the aim is to limit global warming to 2 degrees sellous. anything above that will have
4:02 pm
destructive irreversible consequences across the glob. the u.n.'s weather agency said that greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere have reached a new high warning the resulting climate change has moved the world into unchartered territory. we have more now from paris. >> the goal of the climate summit in paris is to fix a limit for global warming. no more than 2 degrees celsius higher than temperatures before the industrial revolution. currently the planet is heading for a rise of about 5 degrees, that would have catastrophic consequences, particularly for the world's most vulnerable communities. >> an additional 100 million people risk into falling into extreme poverty if there are not efforts to reduce greenhouse gasses. >> and the u.s. secretary of state has spoken about the
4:03 pm
danger of climate change leading to conflict. >> we all need to insure that we're taking steps to prevent competition, new competition were leading to conflict. the bottom line is that the impacts of climate change can exacerbate resource competition, threaten livelihoods and increase the risk of instability and conflict. ens in places already undergoing economic, political and social stress. >> given the urgency of the problem, french officials are saying there is an absolute obligation to reach an agreement in paris next month. and the hosts of the summit, the french also have a lot of prestige at stake. >> in order to reach a deal individual countries have to commit to curb their emissions from burning fossil fuels. this is a big challenge since economies all over the world are still heavily reliant on coal.
4:04 pm
switching from fossil fuels to renewable new jersey is the goal but that costs money. poorer countries want the developed world to give them financial help so they can invest in clean technology to cut their greenhouse gas emissions. urgency means that we're coming to the last possibility to turn the emissions that have continued and still continue today to increase. we have to get them to the point where they turn the corner and begin to decrease. >> the message is clear. if greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise global warning will pass the point of no return. the talk is clicking for world leaders to reach an agreement and implement it. jackie rowlands, al jazeera, paris.
4:05 pm
>> ms. allen, thank you for joining us on al jazeera. as we were hearing from jackie rowlands' report was this debate between developing countries and developed countries saying we're still building our economies. a lot of the mess was made by the developed world. so effectively we need financial help if we're going to reach some kind of agreement. what do you make of that argument. do you think its valid? >> of course it is. we know that the developed world absolutely needs to reduce their emissions. we know that we need to stop emissions that are coming from all sorts of manmade forces whether it's fossil fuel extraction for the western world or intentionally set fires that we see raging throughout indonesia. >> when we look at the figures, the u.s. has long been one of the world polluters. they produce 15% of the carbon dioxide emissions.
4:06 pm
china pumps out 24%. although china is a massive economy, but still growing, there could be an issue there. the developing world may in theory deserve financial aid, but can you see that it would be difficult to put in action or how do you put a voice to overcome this? >> i think what we've seen in previous climate talks is that it is very easy to point the finger at others who need to make reductions. the reality is if we want to keep the climate oh below the 2 degrees we need to see a shift. in a means we need to keep fossil fuels in the ground even though it's challenging. we saw from the report released that renewable energy is surging and it needs support in the western world and support in the developing nations. >> you wrote a very convincing article about indonesia and the widespread burning of tropical rain forests there.
4:07 pm
i think its estimated that fires are producing more carbon pollution than the entire daily emissions of the united states. you said that everyone has to accept that changes have to be made. but let's say you were one of the politicians speaking in a couple of weeks in paris, how would you pressure a country like indonesia to make changes? >> i think it's two-fold. so indonesia already has regulations that aren't being followed by companies. so they can add to those regulations. they can create a moratorium on burning and expansion on peat land. is that they're intentionally set so that companies can produce more palm oil and more pulp. that is to feed western markets. so again, climate change does not recognize national boundaries any more. this will call on all of us to take unprecedented action that matches the scale of the
4:08 pm
challenge. >> lindsay allen, briefly if you can, we've had lots of climate meetings before where very little was accomplish: when you look at the shocking figures that we see about the two degrees celsius anything above that is irreversible, do you think this is the right time to come to some sort of conclusion and action? >> i'm always optimistic that this is the moment that we take advantage of tackling climate change. we need to hold governments and corporations accountable if they fail to. >> we'll wait and see if your optimism was justified. lindsay allen, madam, thank you. >> thank you, barbara. >> well, coming up a little later in this news hour. aung san suu kyi la plans to lead mean marc myanmar. and the fast track registration for refugees.
4:09 pm
>> it's pretty hard to swallow. >> we'll hear from the athletes who believe they were cheated out of medals by russian dopers. >> but first the russian government has begun fighting accusations that it operated a vast state sponsored doping program. questioning the evidence behind the world anti-doping agency report which recommends russia be suspende suspended from global threats. >> rain fell on the olympic complex on tuesday. fitting weather for the current mood. this show piece menu is a legacy from soviet days when doping scandals were common. those days seem to be back and russia could soon find itself cast out of world athletics. >> of course it would be an
4:10 pm
enormous blow. i repeat once again we hope the commonsense from the international association of athletics federation council members must work in the interest of our sport. >> the russian athletics federation has until thursday to respond to the allegations of state-endorsed doping, a decision whether to ban russia is expected over the weekend. it's a move some top athletes would support. >> i do believe that action, it needs to be strong action now. because of the scale and level it's a step that has to be taken. >> in moscow, the world anti-doping allegations has a siege mentality. this building is the official address of the moscow anti-doping which wada has just stripped of its accreditation.
4:11 pm
it was here that athletes paid bribes to have their contamina contaminated samples made disappear. we have tried to get inside and speak to someone from this organization, but security sent us away. and russia's anti-doping agency implied that the report contains hidden anti-russian janet. >> this was no special news for us, but some of the questions has a special sharpness to them and are politically loaded. >> it is perhaps difficult to feel anything about gloom on this bleak damp day, but this sports' journalist is trying to be optimistic. we should go the same way that we went into football ten years ago. we should appoint independent head of anti-doping system to exclude any kind of these allegations. >> but it was igor's paper who
4:12 pm
has called the publication of the report perhaps the darkest day in the history of russian athletics. rory challands, moscow. >> let's speak to doug eldridge in washington, d.c. founder and managing partner of the dle agency which represent a number of olympic athletes. thank you for joining us here on al jazeera. we're first hearing the end of that report how it was the darkest days for russian athletics, of course it could get worse. russia could be suspended both from the international association and crucially possibly also from the olympics. do you think it should be? >> that's a difficult question. as i've said the russian ban from rio is a headline but not the conclusion. as you mentioned a few moments ago there is an opportunity to answer and present their own evidence. this is the results of an
4:13 pm
investigation. what is incredibly tell something how the russians address this. will they come in with a point by point counter evidentiary presentation, or are they defiant or be complicit and implement the suggested changes. the next 48 hours are going to be telling in that record. >> of course, there is a meeting on friday where they want to decide what to do. this has been incredibly damaging for them as well. what action do you think they should take at this meeting on friday assuming they're not going to have the results of any russian investigation? >> well, i think it's one to hinge on the presentation of evidence and response by the russian federation. at this point all we have to go on is one side. and in the interest of being fair and balanced and objective the russian response will in large part dictate where we go from here. if they're defiant there are chances to drag out and ultimately proven true there could be a punitive measure from
4:14 pm
it from the iaaf and conceding that they could be left out of rio 2016. if by contrast they come in with a presentation with fallacies, falsehoods or inefficiency of evidence then it's a different conversation. but in so far as projecting what should b should happen, i would be hard pressed to hear that until we hear what the russians present. >> it is worth pointing out the olympic games without russia are almost inconceivable from a financial point of view. but simply by looking at the athletes russia has always been a key country. do you think that the ioc and the iaaf should be as lenient as they should be for the good of athletics or on the other hand do you think athletes like the ones you represent have been r robbed because russian athletes
4:15 pm
have taken the podium should be kicked out. >> leniency is not the right word. it would present leniency towards the russian federation. every country that is a signatory to the wada code which allows them to participate in the games has the same commitment to fair play. you're not going to see leniency. by contrast what might be played here is diplomatic gravita. what i mean, sochi, we were over there with a number of clients and brought home a medal and the russians ran a fantastic olympics. in a couple of years from now russia will be hosting the world cup. from a diplomatic standpoint sports diplomacy, russia certainly is a heavy player. by no means are they the david in this david and goliath scenario. i think russia will be prepared
4:16 pm
and history will bear out that they're going to come, fight, and hopefully they'll fight it with facts. i'm not one to let russia off the hook nor am i one to prematurely excite them. but to wada's credit they have been a model of absolute efficiency and depth of research. when you look at 323-page report as i happen to have on my desk right now, it is nothing short of incredibly comprehensive. that's why i think its incumbent on the russian federation to match facts with facts because anything in the absence of that, if they don't come with the same level of response and meticulous attention to detail as the report i just showed you, then russia could end up on the shore end of the stick. >> and the president is on the president of iaaf sebastian coe. how much--i don't wan to say
4:17 pm
blame necessarily, but certainly just the fact that he's only been president for a few months does it necessarily exonerate him? he should have known what was going on? >> well, the question always becomes, and pardon the pun, where was the baton dropped in this situation? when you look at all the players, this really is a situation of team work. just like a relay on a track where you have four runners, each of which has a baton, you depend and rely on the people on your team. metaphorically speaking i'm referring to the ioc, the wada and then the member federations. in this case it would have been the russian anti-doping and the russian athletics federation. the responsibility goes up the food chain. the buck stops upward, if you will. i'm not sure in this contest that sebastian coe is culpaible for what we've seen has allegedly been a widespread
4:18 pm
multi year statewide, state run web of corruption and deceit. i'm not sure that the baton drop so to speak drops at sebastian coe's feet. what is questionable is how he handles it. he's in no position to show russia or any other member federation undue leniency. >> doug eldridge u.s. sports speaking with us from washington, d.c. always good to get your views on al jazeera. >> thank you for having me. >> myanmar's opposition leader aung san suu kyi has again insisted that she'll be in control of the incoming government. 9 results are coming in interior the historic election but they show that her party is heading to' resounding win. however, the democratic champion is barred from being president. but she has placed herself above
4:19 pm
the role of president. >> in any democratic country it's the leader of the winning party who becomes the leader of the government. if this constitution does not allow it, then we have to make arrangements so that we can proceed along usual democratic lines. why should it effect the functions of the government because there will be a government and it will be run properly. the president will be told exactly what he can do. >> well, observers say that myanmar election process ra was not flawless but was free from irregularities. >> she's one of the new faces of politics in myanmar. she was a political activist turned successful business woman now soon to be a member of parliament for the national league for democracy. >> this is not the end of the journey. it's just the beginning of the journey.
4:20 pm
to work for the better way for society. >> she's also a face of hope in her constituency, where she beat one of the ruling party's heavyweight on sunday. >> i think she can do everything for us. i believe she can fulfill everyone's wishes in this constituency. >> i voted for her because she can improve our lives. i think she can deliver better education and healthcare. >> there was much concern about the prospect of whiting before the election. the ruling ruin solidarity and development party is after all made up of many former generals who ran the country for half a century. many worried whether they really are willing to relinquish more control. while the election process was not perfect, it seems to have been free of major irregularities. >> the process went better than many expected beforehand. this is also true, however, that
4:21 pm
more is needed, more reforms are needed to insure that truly genuine elections can take place in the future. >> the european union wants to see an end to the military being guaranteed a quarter of the seats in parliament. the they're certainly on track to be able to form the next government but there are many challenges ahead. the army will remain a very powerful political force, and after enduring 50 years of dictatorship, a lack of truth in the military will take a long time to erode. the army will maintain control of three key ministries and have power over constitutional changes. >> actually, this should be a concern of all of us because we still have to negotiate and we have to make the compromise. >> there will be questions about the ability to run the country.
4:22 pm
but in areas where the results have been confirmed people are looking for a better myanmar. >> syrian government forces have broken the siege of an air base in the north of the country according to state tv. the air base east of aleppo has been surrounded by the islamic state of iraq and levant for nearly two years. meanwhile, 22 people have been killed and 40 injured in two explosions. state tv says two mortar rounds hit the east of the city which is a stronghold of president bashar al-assad. al jazeera has the latest from neighboring lebanon. >> undoubtedly a significant gain for the syrian government and it's allies. they've managed to lift the siege on the air base. this facility was besieged by isil for two years now. soldiers have advanced inside the base. they've joined up by the forces inside, and now they're trying to secure the facility.
4:23 pm
we understand that isil is sending military reinforcement from a stronghold towards aleppo. will they launch a counter offensive? will the government be able to hold ground? well, this will--we will have to wait and see. but for the moment this is a significant gain. the government can use this facility as a launching pad because we know one of objectives is to retake territory that it lost in the province of aleppo as well in the city. we have to remember that there were many front lines in this war, and the government has not made much advances really on other front lines against opposition groups. the very fact that mortars landed in the city of latakia, which is a government stronghold, shows that the government was not able to push the rebels back. we have to remember that incidents like this have happened in the past. but this is the first time since russia militarily intervened in the conflict.
4:24 pm
the fact that rebels launched mortar in latakia means that they're close by. the purpose for the russians on the ground was to push them back. we know that civilians were killed. regional internal players involved in the syrian conflict still have a lot of disagreements. >> meanwhile, syrian government airstrikes have killed 15 people in douma near damascus. the dead included women and children and more than a hundred people were injured. medical sources say that field hospitals have fallen and some civilians are still trapped inside buildings. there has been fighting between forces on the ground on the outskirts of douma. al jazeera has eviden evidence, it's naught that 200 of the weapons have been dropped in and around aleppo which has been the scene of sustained fighting in syria's civil war. cluster bombs are banned under a
4:25 pm
treaty although neither russia nor syria have signed up to it. slovenia is to build a fence on its border in an tempt to suspend the number of refugees and migrants. the prime minister who once criticized building barriers said that it will be use to direct refugees rather than stop it. 170,000 migrants have crossed slovenia in october. in greece meanwhile the immigration service has launched a new fast tract recommendation process for refugees. the border agency said that 540,000 refugees have landed on greek islands this year. we have reports from the island of lesbos, it has put a huge strain on the immigration system. >> the wait has been long, but the journey really has just begun. on lesbos, refugees tired of
4:26 pm
borders find even more lines ever more tense. >> there is no food, especially for kids. as you know the weather is cold during the night. >> they came from afghanistan. they slept out here for two days. the one saving grace, he tells me, is when they were finally registered the process was surprisingly simple. >> just name, last name, father name, mother name, and date of birth and gender. >> officials tell us that at this facility that's no accident. >> yeyesterday, 13 were 13- 1300 were screened here. we have registration officers with interpreters to speed up
4:27 pm
the registration process. >> greece is bursting at the seams. it's why hopes are so high this hot spot pilot program will ease the burden that grows by the hour. by questioning screening refugees all in one facility the flow will become more manageable for all involved in this crisis. surrounded by no less than two razor wire fences this is the hot spot registration center right behind me. while we repeatedly asked we have yet to be given permission to film inside. although this structure looks imposing and many of the refugees we have spoken with says they're scared going in, many we have spoken with be they iraq, afghanistan, told us that their treatment inside has been very humane. greek policemen, who is in charge of this registration facility tells me that it's success or failure will hinge on
4:28 pm
the number of people arriving. >> when 3,000 or 3,500 people arrive every day we can. with the registration points we have register everyone easily. but when the numbers increase to 4,000 or more we have many problems. >> organizers here hope this pilot project can be replicated in other parts of europe to speed up this process. but even here the wait to get in only seems to grow longer as the refugees feel for at least a few more days caged in. al jazeera, lesbos, greece. >> still lots more to come on this news hour from london, including the u.s. born children who risk being separated from their foreign parents every day. why turkey's hopes of joining the european union appear to be fading. and in sports the footballer who is could face life in prison after being charged with match fixing.
4:29 pm
4:30 pm
4:31 pm
>> at 9:30 - "america tonight" - top investigative reporting, uncovering new perspectives. >> everything that's happening here is illegal. >> then at 10:00 - it's "reports from around the world". >> let's take a closer look. >> antonio mora gives you a global view. >> this is a human rights crisis. >> and at 11:00 - "news wrap-up". clear... concise... complete.
4:32 pm
>> foreign ministers have been in paris discussing a deal to set a limit of global warm to go two degrees sellous. celsius. and a moscow lab at the center of doping allegations has stopped operations after accreditation was suspended. it comes when there was a state-supported doping program for russia's elite athletes. and greece has launched a fast track immigration service enabling it to pro thousands of refugees every day. >> record audiences are expected to watch the fourth del advised debate between the republican candidates hoping to be the next u.s. president. it is being held in milwaukee where allen fisher joins us now.
4:33 pm
the economy is going to be one of the key topics, who is most under pressure to perform in this debate, do you think? >> well, of course, when you've got eight candidates on stage, this will be a much smaller field, they'll all be under pressure to make the mark. jeb bush has to do something special. he has performed badly in the first three debates when he decided to put the slogan "jeb will fix it" around, he needs a good performance. after his poor performance he saw support and backers go to marco rubio. donald trump is under pressure as well. he spent the weekend hosting aiconnic comedy show in the united states. many believe this presidential campaign is just publicity for the trump machine. he has to show that he is series. and marco rubio made such an impact, he is everyone's second favorite republican. he has to get his message out to the american people.
4:34 pm
these debates are being watched by record numbers. so there is no doubt that the audience is engaged and interested and they want to make a decision, and they want to see how these people perform. as i say, it's a different format. that means over the two hours people might get a few more minutes to put their case to the american public. but also opens them up to more questions from the moderators. >> i guess if any topic is going to make people change their minds it's the economy. that's the main topic. talk us through the some of the aspects that might come up today. >> well, one of the problems the moderators have got, they also want to talk about what has been in the news. what has been in the news is ben carson and his story. he has laid out his auto biography to the american people. he has made many statements that he is interested in getting into the race. the media has put him under the spotlight. he's the frontrunner and he has come under the scrutiny.
4:35 pm
do they ask him about the economy or the stories that have circulated. did he really get accepted to west point military college? did he really try to stab someone when he was just a teenage center detroit? all of these questions will come up for ben carson. it's up to the moderators whether they ask them or not or stick with the economy. they'll talk about how they're going to create jobs and america's infrastructure. one of the things they'll be forced to talk about is immigration. it's been one of the big topics of this campaign mainly because donald trump made it front and center right from the beginning. another thing that they will talk about is anchor babies. people who come in to the united states and have children who now have citizenship. john henry is looking at that issue. >> this is the face of what some
4:36 pm
call america's latest threat. >> because i'm born in the united states, it means that i'm 100% american. but i feel that i'm half mexican, too. >> they were born here. and you under the u.s. constitution that makes them american citizens. their parents and older sister were not. republican presidential candidates have a word for that. >> the anchor babies. >> the argument is that the so-called anchor baby comes first, and then comes the rest of the family. >> people are bringing pregnant women in to come here and give birth for citizenship. >> give me a break. >> there are cases of foreigners giving birth in the u.s. for citizenship, but in reality they cannot help their families to become legal citizens. they cannot apply to have family
4:37 pm
members join them if they're 21. and it takes more it they're undocumented. the girls' sister cannot legally work or go to college. >> she needs to be registered as an american here. and i realize that she's been struggling with that. and working hard. >> the talk and republican race victimizes an already oppressed minority. >> it definitely speaks to what we're seeing a lot of, which is scapegoating. you're unfairly demonizing a large segment of the population. >> the 14th amendment to the u.s. constitution says all persons born or naturalized in the united states or subjected to the jurisdiction therefore are citizens. it was added in 1668. the main reason for the addition was that slaves were not considered citizens. this guaranteed that their
4:38 pm
children would be. the girls parents face daily deportation. >> every day we pray we can go to work and come home. >> each year u.s. immigration officials deport as many as 70,000 parents with u.s.-born children lik like jeanette and fatima. >> restrictions on benefits for migrants and protection from closer e.u. integration. formal talks on the renegotiation are expected at a summit in diseas december. jonah hull has the latest. >> will we stay or will we go? the question that will dominate british politics on e.u.
4:39 pm
membership. on tuesday prime minister david cameron began his campaign to renegotiate the terms of britain's membership. something that he hopes will convince voters to stay. >> do i have every confidence that we'll achieve an agreement that works for britain and for the parliament. if and when we do so, i will campaign to keep britain inside a reform european union. >> broadly cameron believes that britain should be allowed to limit welfare payments to e.u. migrants and refugees for a period of four years after they arrive to opt out of certain e.u. laws especially closer european integration and to have special protection for the financial services sector in the city of london. with opinion polls showing a narrow lead for the campaign.
4:40 pm
>> he said he's prepared to be flexible. everything else to be put on a piece of paper from the french and the germanys as a promise to change the treaties in years to come. >> what is the defining argument? you have to make it simple. what is the punching defining argument to stay? >> we're better in. going out carries with it unknown, unknowable risks. it's better particularly has demonstrated we can push the european union in a more british direction. >> opponents argue that david cameron's demands are trivial and already rehissed and more than likely to be met mor met mor. the migrants issue will meet resistence. but the likes of german
4:41 pm
chancellor angela merkel believes that a deal can be done. a deal that will then have to be judged by the british voter. >> portugal is in political turmoil after left wing members of parliament joined forces to toppled the center right government just 11 days after it was sworn in. the newly formed alliance came together to outvote the government after declaring their unhappiness of strict austerity members. support gall is still recovering economically and still received $87 billion in bail out in exchange for that austerity program. turkey's hopes of joining the european union have been weakened by a critical e.u. report. if says that the judiciary has been undermined and freedom of expression has been turkeyed. turkey has rejected the report as unfair.
4:42 pm
but as bernard smith reports from istanbul, many turks believe they may never be allowed to join the e.u. >> too big, too poor, too muslim, the words of a former e.u. commissioner just before turkey went into formal talks for entry of the european union. a statement that help set the tone for the ten years those talks have now dragged on. so the latest generation of turkish students of the e.u. are more pragmatic than enthusiast enthusiastic. >> it's the biggest party is turkey in trade. but i really don't believe that turkey will become an european union member. >> i believe it was the e.u. who blocked the process in the first place. there may be various reasons for this one may be turkey's huge population. there is debate about its culture. is turkey an european country or
4:43 pm
not. >> i really want turkey to be an e.u. member. icu membership towards democracy and human rights. but when we look at our current foreign policy it doesn't look likely that turkey will become a member soon. >> noticing a decline in support for e.u. membership amongst students. >> there used to be much more enthusiasm because they believed the prospect of turkey's membership. right now many of the students will tell you that they seem to see a very weak prospect, so they don't believe it's going to happen in the near future. also they have doubts about whether the e.u. is sincere about taking turkey as a member. >> those views are shared by the ruling akp party. in 2002 e.u. membership was the priority. but as progress stalled, prime
4:44 pm
minister now president erdogan turned east, attempting to establish turkey as a leading power in the muslim world. in the ten years since turkey went knocking on the e.u.'s door, rapid economic growth although it's slowing now, has pulled many of turks out of poverty. for many of them although they may hope one day to join the e.u. it doesn't seem as important now. bernard smith, al jazeera, istanbul. >> industry lan ca sri lanka has released hundreds of fishermen who mr. arrested on illegal fishing. >> holding the sri lankan government has described the decision to release the fishermen in its custody. these were taken in for violating sri lankan waters.
4:45 pm
now the issue is part of a dispute over fishing. they claim that hundreds sometimes even thousands of indian boats cross into the waters and carry away prized fishing stock. the indians, maintain that they are only fishing in traditional waters. now, unlike in previous times sri lankan shorts have been tightening the way they deal with this thing. they said they will keep the boats and release the fishermen. now this 126 fishermen brought with them 73 boats and those boats have been held back from the sri lankan authorities. the issue not just taking away from the authorities of the rich catch, but also the huge environmental impact because the
4:46 pm
indian trollers using is called bottom trolling, and the sri lankan government said that is detrimental to the environment. now the bad weather conditions believe that the sea trolling will take place later than planned. >> the dubai airshow usually hits the headlines for the billions of aircraft sold. but the focus this year is on cutting edge technology rather than big money deals. >> after two days of the airshow. they have been very quiet. to be fair two years ago in 2013 it was a record number of records, $206 billion spent on new plane orders. this year the only things of note this far, jet airways from india spending $8 billion on 75 new 737 planes.
4:47 pm
and dubai spending as for the things like the planes behind me, forget about it. there has not been a new order for one of those in two years. with not so much happening here outside the focus has shifted to inside. this is the first time here in dubai that there has been one entire section of the airshow dedicated to 3d printing. in fact, there are a thousand parts on board which are manufactured through 3d printing. what we have here is the world's first 3d printed drone or uav, as they call them, which has a jet engine inside. what they've managed to do is to construct it or print it from a material they can with stand the hit of the jet engine puts out. now that jet engine is
4:48 pm
pressuring this drone at 240 kilometers per hour. that changes the way drones are used. at this stage it's only a concept. it's not something that will be mass produced or ordered. but what it's demonstrating is what it's capabl cape of, where it can go in a short period of time. >> still more to come here on al jazeera. seattle's sticky street art, how chewing gum has turned an ordinary alley into a tourist destination. and sana will be here with sports including the details of the colombian football stepping down.
4:49 pm
4:50 pm
4:51 pm
>> to find out. probably should have been banned in 2011, but they held off to ban him in london effectively letting him winning the gold medal. it's pretty devastating. it makes me very anger. to know that your international federation, the federation order, the supporting body was looking after the dopers. >> sebastian coe has followed the recommendation to suspend russia. and the committee said that president coe can--
4:52 pm
