equipment for years can be part and parcel of professional sport but it's how you deal with them that counts take a look at how one badminton player at the korean open coped to when he realized he'd smashed he's a record in the middle of a rally china's wearing that yield you left partner one pain to do the work when he ran to his bench to get a spare he made it back on to court just in time to make a return despite that the pair went on to do this today. and will leave it there more support again later yeah those are some quick lewis thank you peter now a lake in indiana mr kashmir used to be the largest in asia one hundred years ago since then it's shrunk in half and it's called with silt and a smith went to see where the latest cleanup campaign is working its water chestnuts season on the lake at the foothills of the himalayas. but the waters are getting harder to navigate all around as a growing mounds of silt this boy is jumping off one of them and it's because of
these willow trees. but the water was very clear here it was blue so pondar tells me as we walk over what was once a lake it was a forestry worker in the one nine hundred fifty s. hired by the government to plant willows to later harvest for firewood. landed hundreds of thousands of trees but it was a mistake this has just brought destruction to. my heart that i'm responsible for planting. the willows choking the lake. in one thousand eleven will last surface area was two hundred sixteen square kilometers it's now half that. well are supposed to be a natural flood barrier for the city of srinagar downstream. but the lakes defenses failed with severe consequences in twenty fourteen inundating the city more than three hundred people were killed if you look at the data over there and bear in mind is including the meat you can see there defeat can see of the extreme events
including the precipitation cloudburst floods is increasing so whenever we will have this type of flooding so the little bit goes up with this massive sedimentation is not able to absorb all the floodwaters and that will if there does not take care of that will again lead to the you know massive inundation of the city in a good city. a small section of clear water is the only evidence that anything has been done recently to clean the lake now in recent years there have been attempts to restore well our lake but they have always ended up costing between tens to hundreds of millions of dollars of has never been enough money so this latest project aims to try and persuade private contractors to dredge the water and take part payment of willow trees in return but they're only going to start with one square kilometer we are getting demanded special from public from god would do
under to get as early as possible it is one. gives an idea how people are concerned and it will be taken for. the contractor will get two years to d. silt and up root the willow from there one square kilometer if the scheme works the government will extend it it'll take decades to finish perhaps not enough time to beat the next extreme weather event bernard smith al-jazeera. and the kashmir valley. that's it for me and for this news hour but my colleagues who touch in will be with you very shortly with a full bus never used to say without is there. a

and hold elections which controls the occupied west bank. has welcomed but asked for clarification from gaza. the pressure has been mounting on hamas the results of ten years of israeli and egyptian blockade have been intensified this year by rival palestinian faction fatah the fatah leader palestinian president mahmoud abbas has cut salary payments and electricity supplies attempting to pressurise hamas into giving up its sole control of gaza hamas turned to egypt which pushed the palestinian reconciliation. we responded to these efforts and made a brave decision to dissolve the administrative committee and now there are no excuses for. a bass has one choice only to respond positively to achieve the palestinian dream of national unity. that dream was written by gunfire in two
thousand and seven when hamas prevailed in street battles and the political division between gaza and the occupied west bank began repeated attempts to reconcile have collapsed this time for tar says it's ready to send its officials to gaza that plans are in place for the unity government to get to work its no matter of details. we now look positively on this but we need clarifications and the clarifications should come from the guarantor and the mediator which is egypt some of those who potentially have the most to gain from any deal between hamas and fatah and the hundreds of thousands of gazans who live in refugee camps like this one but over ten years of separation and economic blockade they become used to being let down. they certainly borne the brunt of the palestinian authorities recent pressure tactics for hours electricity a day has become the norm this on top of a crippled economy which is left and his four sons among so many others in gaza without jobs. reconciliation could solve the power problem
it could solve the water problem the markets are empty. because people have no money no regular salaries people live without being able to plan. their remains much to resolve such as who has ultimate control over the armed wing of hamas what happens to the tens of thousands of hamas employees who to now have been working in a parallel administration to the palestinian authority is in the details and the ones both hamas and fatah sit down together and try to figure out the issue of future palestinian the systems in gaza are the issue of how last forty five forty three thousand employees and. other minor issues that might be a big problem other issues loom not least on mahmoud abbas handles relations with the u.s. and israel both of which describe him as a terrorist group gazans though they're more interested in decision could make any time now to lift the recent restrictions and make their lives
a little better original said al-jazeera gaza so how did we get here well hamas took over gaza in two thousand and seven after a war with fatah the fighting followed parliamentary elections which hamas won the two parties couldn't agree on how to share power though the conflict weakened the palestinian authority leaving it only in charge of palestinian territories in the west bank which is occupied by israel since march last year hamas has wrangles or under and administrative committee which is seen as a rival government to the fattah dominated palestinian authority in the west bank and as you know you've been hearing how mass now says it's dissolved this administration to allow a unity government led by mahmoud abbas to assume responsibility in gaza hamas has also agreed to hold general elections. and the binds the two with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas says elections are important for a future unified government. we are very optimistic but we would like to see that
first step takes place we are ready the consensus government is here and it can travel quickly. after a long and long period of saying and not doing the only thing is that step which might take place tomorrow i mean it is not talking about weeks we're talking about something that could happen very very soon once it happens once the consensus government a government that hamas had accepted every one of its ministers been chaperoned by egypt also once this government starts ruling gaza and the west bank and start developing problems. canonically start solving the economic problems of the gazans and that that first step will set real optimism for the second step which is the elections a step that we have called for for
a very long time and now from us except that legislative and presidential elections will bring back our elective democracy and will bring back more support from the people to a unified government. in baghdad ash the government has announced a controversial arrest richmond's on the movement of a hinge of refugees crossing over from. it setting up new camps to how is the more than four hundred thousand refugees who have fled ethnic violence in iraq and states according to say media the revenger are barred from using public transport and looking for accommodation outside these cramped refugee camps and the national .
