7:09 pm
something that it is providing financial and other support for what he describes as terrorist groups and that this is leading to severe instability in the gulf region and that is the justification for the blockade of the spice the saudis the. heinies and the egyptians. that started back on june fifth of course he also did make no reference to other regional concerns notably the israeli palestinian question as well as to the ongoing us civil war inside syria but his language nic i thought was very very tough and perhaps may be done as much for domestic political consumption as for anything else but at the on the face of it it does not look as if the saudis are willing to give any credence to statements made earlier this week here at the u.n. general assembly by the u.s. president donald trump and several others that there should be and there could be
7:10 pm
an opportunity to actually resolve this crisis among the members of the g.c.c. and also refer i mean is political support for what he called the political process in yemen. that's right the coalition has been criticized for its conduct of the air war against the rebel groups as well as other supporters of the former president. hadi and suggesting that this is. and this is of course a question of the saudi coalition being accused of. indiscriminately targeting civilians in their efforts to try to bring the who the rebels to heal. this is of course something which the saudis and other coalition members have the hemet lee denied but clearly there is some talk here at the security council about trying to perhaps do something about the situation there is pressure as our viewers
7:11 pm
may know on the u.n. secretary general antonio good terrorists to make us certain that when a new report on children and armed conflict comes out perhaps at the end of this month perhaps in october that the saudi like coalition is held accountable for rather these attacks which have led to the deaths and injuries of many civilians in yemen during its civil war this is something which of course the saudis do not want to see happen but clearly very much laying down markers on the saudi government's view of these two critical issues very much in a row john reporting that from the united nations speech as more important speech is coming up thanks very much. i might be three point four earthquake has hit north korea close to the science of its last nuclear test china initially suggested the tremor may have come from

7:20 pm
neighborhood of mexico city which collapsed in tuesday's quick but there may be species of people survive. there's a lot of misinformation we are very upset the authorities to do something and fast because i'm. long time has passed and even if they are alive each day that goes by the chances get slim. psychologists zero in hand to help the families. they don't even want to talk it's like at this point they just want to be left alone which is normal the more time passes the less hope they have. mexican rescue workers have toiled through the wreckage for days refusing to give up even when exhaustion makes that the easy option but no american and japanese teams have arrived with fresh muscles. and better technology what we do we bring in highly skilled and searchers and rescuers we bring in. technical equipment and we bring in a lot of it i mean where it could sort of type one heavy team which means we can
7:21 pm
breach breaks concrete we have search dogs we have search cameras we have a variety of instruments that allow us to do highly technical skilled searching it's no more than seventy two hours which struck in not to the forty nine scale because stories of rescue become much greater we tend to become stories of recovery but the people here are looking at the building behind me and the what is going on there. that somehow this time it may be different. was mexico may have ended its official three days of mourning for the victims of the quake but many families still have their own personal tragedies to remember and more they find themselves facing that heartbreak in piece to come alan fischer mexico city. tens of thousands of people are being evacuated from their homes in puerto rico and made fears a dam will break heavy rain brought in by hurricane maria has weakened. our buses have been brought in to help people leave but damage from the storm is making their
7:22 pm
escape difficult roads are blocked by debris and communication lines are down make it hard to warn residents of the danger tensions have been high as people queue for hours for fuel. now it's kind of got him down compared to how it was it was a little agitated earlier we almost had a fight in one of those. but i guess this is the police here they have got it together so let's pray that we get the flow moving faster and people can meet before curfew but most likely better than those of us who've been here since nine might be left without gasoline it's a completely chaotic situation that i have never seen in. my life that i've seen such a critical situation of course thanks to memory of the hurricane we're all in the streets you know as part forces have seized syria's largest natural gas field from iceland as or provence the conoco gas field is the first energy facility of its kind to be taken by the syrian democratic forces which is

a rebel coalition of arab and kurdish fighters some is battling to separate offensives from s.t.'s fighters and syrian government soldiers to try them out and saw the turkish army is continuing its highly visible military drill near the iraq border ahead of a controversial kurdish independence vote on monday a turkish parliament has convened for an extraordinary parliamentary session to renew a mandate for turkey's military to intervene in iraq in syria and take his prime minister been healed rim has warned iraqi kurdish leaders of possible sanctions and military moves if the vote does go ahead. well iraq's kurdish leader massoud barzani has promised monday's independence referendum will go ahead despite international pressure to stop it and his hold abdul hamad reports from northern iraq the vote also has the support of so-called disputed territories. and this she said the kurdish colors are flying high oil rich city is giving tours of historic different and self-determination even though it's not part of the iraqi
7:24 pm
kurdish region. the governor who made to push to take part in the vote against all odds. i have the support of my people we feel it's the right time and they tell us you should engage baghdad in negotiations i think that's a good idea we have been doing it since two thousand and three with different governments after the fall of saddam hussein. and we really haven't. gotten anywhere. kirkuk is part of the so-called disputed territories it's also home to turkmen and arabs many of them say they will boycott the vote. there's increased ethnic polarization and it will be difficult to control once it spills onto the streets particularly because every house has a weapon who will control that. the question kurds will have to answer is do you
7:25 pm
want the kurdistan region and the kurdistan areas outside the regions of ministration to become an independent state and that includes places like by sheikha that used to be under the control of the central government it's now a border town this is the berm that the kurds built after kurdish forces took control of areas evacuated by the iraqi army back in two thousand and fourteen now many here call it the border of the future kurdistan state but you can see how close this she up our military forces under the command of the iraqi prime minister are stationed very have increased their presence ever since the referendum was announced. the fish were gay here say they're ready for any eventuality but this is a cause of concern for people like cindy even so i think. we had first met the is he the couple shortly after it was recaptured and generally only returned home in
7:26 pm
july. and the house was rigged we had to clear it the most important issue was security we will support whoever will protect us. the kurds have secured areas on the day control and are vowing to never give up their gains but if people here are certain that the yes vote will prevail there are certain that the government in baghdad will reject the result but at the in the order in iraq. to spray no where the central government and council and leaders the tussling over who controls the regional police falls which is considered key to the success of the tables referendum vote on government is already valid to push ahead with a vote and says it won't be handing over control of the police forces spain's government has voted illegal and says it will begin coordinates you know police efforts in catalonia to crack down on preparations for the votes that let's go live
7:27 pm
now to john hendren of the latest updates he's in barcelona and joined the sounds like he's a continuing to write. things it just kept getting more and more intense and today was no exception there was an extraordinary meeting between catalonian officials and the interior ministry today and afterwards the catalonian interior minister walked out spoke to local t.v. and said inside that room we refused to allow local police that is the regional police force here known as must suppose to take their direction from spain so what that does is set up a potential conflict between two separate police forces with very different goals there are the three to four thousand national police who have come here and are staying in cruise ships off of the coast and then there are the seventeen thousand more service who tour that number and they look at their goal is protecting the rights of the catalonian people we don't know exactly what they will do but as the
7:28 pm
spanish police try to shut down that referendum it is by no means clear that the local forces will go along with that so that leaves the spanish government with a question will it be able to shut down this referendum on october first without the help of local police or will it have to do something else perhaps bring in more troops perhaps come up with some kind of compromise that we don't know exactly what the answer to that is going to be but i will tell you that people here in barcelona have been energize. by the government's response they say it's reminiscent of the government of francisco franco whose crackdown made the catalonian language illegal and catalonian customs is well so this has been a rather dramatic confrontation and the government of spain seems to be pushing people here in a way that leads them to increasingly support independence but we really won't know what happens and nobody will until october first indeed all right john thanks very
7:29 pm
much indeed that's picture from barcelona john hendren reporting. tens of thousands of people in the french capital have been marching in protest at president manuel micron's labor reforms protesters in paris were through a crew from the far left opposition party leader meningeal he says that macros actions are destroying workers' rights on friday mequon signed a decree to make it easier for companies to hire and fire stuff and he says it will create more jobs and more opportunities it. was at the rally. think they come out to protest today want to keep up the pressure on the government to try and scrap this. first they don't change it in some way even though it was signed through by prison on friday they say that it's simply unfair from their point of view it favors. as they say it makes it too easy to hire and fire i did a road stays much cherrish works right syrian front now this march is actually
7:30 pm
being led by the next. presidential candidate and he's really shaping up to be one of person for specific takes on what he's done is really rally around many on the left do you feel that person is really more worried about looking off to the bridge than the poor but for the president he says that this book came needed to be changed and needed to be reformed to bring funds into. place to make it more flexible because he says as it stands simply not enough opportunities for young people. to stifle competition and something needed to be done. before we're going to have a recap made headlines here in al-jazeera and saudi arabia's foreign minister has addressed the final day of the united nations general assembly. told to you and the
