faces a very different parliament. i'm not matheson this is all just a lie from doha also coming up donald trump adds north korea and venezuela to the list of countries whose nationals face a u.s. travel ban. iraqi kurds refuse to back down from monday's independence referendum despite opposition from all their neighbors. i've never said anything about this is nothing to do with race anything else this is with respect for our country and respect. and how a remark at a political rally has suddenly put it donald trump against america's most popular sport. german chancellor angela merkel has won a fourth time in office her victory was widely expected but she will face
a very different political landscape when the new bundestag convenes the far right a.f.d. party not only won seats for the first time but made a surprisingly strong showing exit polls per. medical center right christian democratic union party has won just over thirty three percent of the vote that gives them two hundred twenty seats their main rival and current coalition partner the center left social democrats led by martin schultz got around twenty one percent of the vote or one hundred thirty seven seats but the biggest change to germany's political scene is this the far right and anti islamic alternative for germany or d. getting thirteen point two percent of the vote that translates into eighty seven seats with three other main parties one between nine and ten percent of the vote but could find themselves in power as part of a coalition dominic came the ports from berlin. a moment of celebration for the christian democrats confirmed in first place but for some it was
a hollow victory they lost almost one hundred seats in this election so although anglo-american very probably remain as chancellor this was a choice a moment when that's really. of course we are facing a huge task. and parliament will carry out a profound because we want to win back the voters of the by solving problems and listening to their worries and sometimes their fears but above all through good politics. and there are many of those voters four years ago the far right alternative for germany party failed to win any seats in its first federal election campaign this time with an anti refugee anti islam platform it nearly tripled its vote and we'll be the third largest party in parliament. because we've been given an electoral mandate and we will accept this electoral mandate with
humility because millions of voters have given us their trust to carry out constructive opposition work in the german parliament and we will deliver ladies and gentlemen we will deliver. for the social democrats this. it was a disastrous election martin schulze led them to their worst result since world war two he and his party will now form the main opposition in parliament which means angle americal must now trying to form what's called the jamaica coalition after the colors of its national flag taking in the greens and the free democrats a combination that has never been tried at a federal level she had looked long and lament as the comforter winner but she really lost significantly and she needs the party which lost most in this election in comparison to the last election so hopefully the c.d.u. world learned its lesson too that they have to change something because otherwise they will be defeated in the next elections. the first the democrats have their
first full enjoy this and the fact the sun doesn't rise in this thread might well be full of how difficult it will be to form a coalition on the next government the federal government to members of the far right i'm not gonna have just come from the bank of america still targeting as being dense in government al-jazeera the. us president donald trump assigned an order implementing sweeping new travel restrictions on citizens from eight countries it replaces his original travel ban on citizens of from six muslim majority countries the new restrictions are expected to come into effect on october the eighteenth let's go straight to mike hanna who's in washington d.c. for us mike what more do we know about this. or robert ministration officials have told us that this new proclamation follows a country wide assessment global why the assessment of u.s. security issues to states around the world were given fifty days to meet
a list of bench line requirements by the united states at the end of this period there are eight countries that u.s. officials say have not met these benchmark requirements and they are chad iran libya north korea syria somalia venezuela and yemen now off these five countries were on listed on the original ban that ban expired today but now comes into effect again with this proclamation the new countries added to the list the ban will come into effect on october the eighteenth but very important to know this is very different from previous bans each of the countries is dealt with specifically in the proclamation conditions and requirements and restrictions vary from country to country iran for example there was a total ban on travel for iranian nationals now this has been eased although it
remains on the list students and exchange visitors may be given visas from iran in the case of venezuela for example when those who were in nationals are allowed to travel but the restrictions are restricted to government members certain government members so that's very different in terms of the fact that it is targeted and also the proclamation does make a case for waivers in each case to be granted there is a mechanism within the proclamation so a very different beast from previous bans also important to note that all visas currently issued will remain valid despite the ban commencing on october the eighteenth mike hanna live for us in washington d.c. mike thanks very much indeed. the u.s. has carried out air strikes on an i sold desert camp in libya killing seventeen fighters it happened on friday two hundred forty kilometers southeast of sirte the coastal city was a former stronghold in libya the strikes are the first by the u.s.
in libya since president donald trump took office in january there i can government is ramping up its efforts to stop a controversial referendum on kurdish independence on monday it's asked the autonomy's kurdish region to hand over control of its international border posts and airports it's also calling on foreign countries to stop importing oil from the kurdish region and to deal with the baghdad government instead by mr hyde that are the ones the vote will have dire consequences. i want to speak clearly with our dear kurdish people most of the problems in your region are local and not coming from baghdad the call of secession will only make the crisis of economic and financial difficulties get bigger resulting from the corruption and bad management i want to direct my verse of the kurdish people and ask those responsible where has the money from oil revenues gone where the president of iraq's kurdish regional government in my suit bazzani insists the vote will go
ahead he says officials in baghdad have failed to live up to the promises they made to the kurds. they have been continuing threatening and him a million people the state that we agreed on should have been a state based on citizenship federalism pluralism multiculturalism and democracy but unfortunately the state we have right now in iraq is a theocratic sectarian state. has more from bill the capital of iraq's kurdistan region. this was the final tie we hear from kurdish president masoud barzani before the reverend takes place on monday and he had some very harsh words for the government in baghdad he said the didn't you iraq because participated in building and went willingly to baghdad for back in two thousand and three turned out to be a crack take and think tarion country he said the kurds did all what they could they believed a key role in ratify the constitution back in two thousand and five but they did
not get what they expected in return then he went on speaking about all the current problems with the central government in baghdad and he said that after the vote they will still be a time for negotiation that independence won't come on the next day and maybe it will take a year or two or even more depends on how good these talks with go but within minutes the prime minister either allowed by the gave us choice statement and he also didn't mince his words he said that baghdad when never accept the disintegration of iraq and that this referendum will lead actually to a creation of a racist and sick tarion state he then went on putting a lot of the blame on the kurds he said that yes they did not receive their share of the federal revenue but about a quarter of iraq's oil production at the moment is being sold unilaterally by the kurds and he then he went on saying that at
a baghdad is going to take further steps he did not elaborate what those steps could be but he did warn that iraq was entering a dangerous zone and nobody knows what the outcome will be despite of all the talk of war between the two politicians well people here are getting ready to head to the polling stations monday morning about twelve thousand of those around the kurdish region and the disputed territories and also in the camps where the displaced people will be a. it's certainly an upbeat atmosphere here. this is their time to express their opinion and to take this into their own hands on monday also marks one month since the beginning of an army crackdown that triggered the latest crisis in million mark since then four hundred and thirty thousand one hundred refugees have fled to neighboring bangladesh to escape i think violence reports from the bangladesh myanmar border inside this bag

with there being no power and no telecommunications and for many this is an incredibly difficult long term situation every day it serves becoming like more of a reality you know because it's like surreal i guess so you know it's. you know we think that this is going to be back to normal and we just hope that that's going to happen and here is yet another problem the entire island is facing whole communities submerged below flood waters and all of this is been here for days it's starting to smell because sewage is leaking in oil is leaking in and it's simply heartbreaking for people in the street behind me but what we can say for certain after spending a week in puerto rico is this is going to be a long and painful recovery and for many people simply heartbreaking and a gallacher al-jazeera san juan puerto rico. the playing of the national anthem is a ritual before sporting events across the u.s. but on sunday more than one hundred national football league players sat or knelt
