a massive truck bomb targeting an area with many government offices hotels and restaurants police say that people are still trapped under the rubble of a hotel and they feel that the death toll could rise paul brennan reports. when the truck arrived at the busy intersection known locally as k five there was a traffic jam dozens of motorists stuck in their cars hundreds of bystanders too and so the explosion caused qana the woman to show them cover couldn't have come out this was the biggest explosion i have ever heard the car exploded at the center of the busiest junction in mogadishu it caused huge destruction some more than twenty dead people around the street and there may be more than that in the collapsed buildings i myself and i've never seen a scene like this ever before all the buildings around here have collapsed there are close to two hundred people in these buildings i hope everyone is ok ok five is in a bustling commercial district of mogadishu with many shops hotels and businesses the
blast happened outside the safari hotel not normally used by government workers and so it's not clear whether the hotel itself was the intended target or possibly the somali foreign ministry nearby it's emerged too that the police were actually following the truck at the time of the explosion. two hours after the truck bomb blast a car bomb detonated in the city's medina district two people were killed there and the driver arrested the group al-shabaab frequently launches gun grenade or bomb attacks in mogadishu despite being forced from the capital six years ago by african union and somali troops the ongoing threat is a constant worry for many somalis whole brennan al jazeera. eisel appears to be on the verge of being pushed out of its self-proclaimed capital in syria iraq a local official so that some eisler fighters have been allowed to leave the city
after a deal was brokered by tribal leaders on saturday and it's not clear how many isaw members are still inside the city on saturday kurdish backed syrian fighters said the battle could take hours or days but i still ended record in twenty fourteen it's control soon spread to areas of iraq in the group seized control of large swathes of both countries three years later but its territory has been reduced to this the iraqi government is launching an offensive to drive the group from the last area it holds there as well as being on the brink of losing rocker in syria i saw has just lost the town of our mayor dean syria and its allies are also trying to drive the armed group from the last pocket it holds in delos or city let's take you live now to what al-jazeera is following developments from an attack here on the turkey syria border so what's the latest action we have on the fighting in iraq are. adrian negotiations are being going for quite some
time to convince that i said foreign fighters to leave left with their civilians as the fighters in iraq say that those who left took with them civilians as human shields and some very few remaining occupying two or three buildings at the very center of however i've just spoken with some people in iraq and they say that they are confident in the two or three hours from now they will make a final announcement saying that russia is finally and control of the as the f. which is the umbrella organization that includes many groups including the very powerful white b.g. was he's backed by the americans the reason why we've been. getting some very conflicting reports over the last forty eight hours is basically because the moment they said that they were negotiating with fallen fire the u.s.
led coalition issued a statement saying that this tensing itself from the operating saying that we won't allow for foreign fighters to leave iraq. so we're not going to give them and if it passes the s.d.f. backtracked but today they say it's almost over so how significant would rockers capture them be i saw what does it mean for the for the group. when they took over in two thousand and fourteen the was the declared it as their capital in syria and they were hoping to further expand from the two words. and expand their influence that rhetoric has been. reversed so the loss of raw power would push them further towards the border with syria and it gives this sentiment that is the beginning of the end what i said in syria yesterday the last mayor deal that was also very significant for the simple reason is that dealers or has most of
syria's oil fields and when i said took over the area they were. tapping all those fears wish were pumping something like forty eight thousand barrels a day allowing i sell to generate something like four hundred million dollars a year with that's money that could fuel the war machine there was get expand they would hire recruiters from all over the world and they would also pay for their military operations in iraq with those we sources now drained in syria i still is left with very few pockets in the very south of the country all the border with iraq but with no more cash to be able to continue their fight question many thanks indeed herschelle question hold but other in and taqiyya. polls open in austria in a snap election that could see the far right freedom party enter into government as part of a coalition the election is a year early after the government fell apart in may let's take you live out of the
end. david chaytor is there david this is being seen as. a fairly crucial election for austria what voters been concerned with in the run up to it. or it's been very surprising in the run up to this election and how the whole debate has centered around essentially a right wing. this is a fight between the center right led by the thirty one year old. sebastian kurtz who's going to be probably the youngest chancellor in austria and the youngest leader in europe as a result of this election and also the the far right party the hard right party the freedom party led by heinz christie and slacker now he's very much moderated his tone he's trying to be much more statesman like he's disavowed his neo nazi past this is not an insurgent party it's been in power before in coalitions and
this time it is expected to be called on to form to help form a right wing coalition now the issues all around immigration immigration immigration and i've been looking over the past few days at the final speeches the final campaigns and trying to get the opinions of some of the people about what's been happening here. there are a. bastion kurtz's called the austrian politics of what see at thirty one he may be short on years but he's long on ambition this t.v. broadcast with you people's party shows his eyes are set firmly on the chancellor ship. the polls put it well ahead but he's done it by poaching some of the policies of the far right. i can also promise today that we will end illegal migration to achieve more order
and security in austria keep. it's the freedom party led by hines christian structure that could be drawn into a new right wing coalition with the chancellor they draw their support from a working class educated by the waves of immigration into europe struck has said his near nazi links and hughes. could now be dismissed he described himself then as stupid and naive and there is no islam does not belong in austria and we do not want an islamic nation of our own homeland. i think something needs to change australia is either very strong to the left over very strong to the right and the middle needs to come back the middle class is missing a ban on face veils came into effect here this month but opinion was divided amongst worshippers at friday prayers at the the end of mosque about what life might be like i don't you right wing coalition. this no i'm afraid to be
living in a country where the women are suppressed because of the headscarf or what they are wearing their exteriors and i am afraid of that as i want to become a doctor. and muslims are mature voters in vienna and we do not feel vulnerable or less protected them before austria has been largely successful in integrating its muslim minority but the islamophobia card is being played in this election and it's winning votes. the changing political landscape in australia is likely to add to the problems of the german chancellor angela merkel she'll no longer find natural allies in government here chaytor al-jazeera. we'll get a weather update next here on al-jazeera then take a look at this it could be one of the last times that you see hollywood producer harvey weinstein on the oscars red carpet the academy expels the disgraced media mogul we'll tell you why the ancient city of venice is shrinking its citizens are
leaving in droves chased out by millions of tourists but now they're fighting back . hello the autumn winds are still blowing through northern and then eastern europe bringing cloud and some rain with them so the windy situation is consistent with automobiles maybe less consistent with what's happening further west these are the frontal systems that this would high is a bit of a clue for central western europe it's been sitting pretty the sun's still working hard the temperatures in spain are well above where they should be twenty nine in madrid over thirty down and alysia this want to spread again through france towards british isles and the western side of europe is substantially warmer than you might expect and for the time being dry but it is getting windy in particular that's
going to be the case for ireland during monday or tuesday the remains of harken ophelia still there as a deep low which also pumps more warmth further north as well even reaching berlin at twenty one degrees on monday in vienna is in the twenty's too so it's not looking quite like autumn by the time we start next week now the consequence of the current setup is just a feral breeze blowing blowing through the desert the eastern med the temperatures along the coast of africa around about middle twenty's like her in cairo but on shore breeze will be noticeable i think but right back at least in the immediate future is still pretty warm thirty degrees.
hello again the top stories this hour on al-jazeera eisel appears to be on the verge of being pushed out of its self-proclaimed capital in syria local officials say that some myself fighters have been allowed to leave the city after a deal was brokered by tribal leaders on saturday it's not clear how many isaw members are still in the city. at least twenty people have been killed in two bomb
attacks in somalia's capital mogadishu the first explosion was a massive truck bomb targeting an area with many cup with offices hotels and restaurants but australia is voting in a snap election that could see the far right freedom party enter into a coalition government the election is a year early after the current government fell apart in may. but as well as opposition is projected to win a majority of governorships and sunday's regional elections there the poll is being viewed as an indicator of just how much support president nicolas maduro still enjoys the economy is in a tailspin people face daily food shortages and this hyper inflation traceable reports now from petard where the government's been trying to garner support. it's one day before the elections in the refuge. for many one of the largest slums in the world located in the state of. government boxes of subsidized food i being distributed among the more than one hundred sixty families living in
this abandoned building. this is where we write people's names this woman got two boxes another only one we don't want to get confused we're all struggling here this sunday i have to go and vote. we were told voting is an obligation here if they want to continue receiving government help. but many are frustrated even though the government has built millions of houses around the country those living here have been waiting for years for their return to live in a better place. and has been here for four years she lives with her husband and two children in this small room and says feeding her family is a struggle every day. sometimes my children tell me i'm hungry i'm hungry i don't know what to do i get desperate because i don't have anything. and that's why this
boxes have become a crucial in venezuela these days they cost fifty cents every month people living here receive this boxes from the government there no one else claps inside you can find some sugar some pastors some vs two bottles of oil milk among other things this is supposed to last for a month but people tell us that it only lasts eight days if you look around and this is the only food available in this household. the economic situation in venezuela will play a big role in sunday's results as people are struggling around the country rampant inflation shortages of staple foods and basic medicines have dented the government's popularity. venezuela is going through a deep crisis we think that if the opposition had warning twenty fifteen the situation had got worse in the following years then we believe the opposition vote
would probably be increased even more the government is doing everything possible to win here because it's located in the state of media and there that has been traditionally controlled by the opposition. but even though those present here told us they will be voting on sunday it is not clear whether the government has done enough to win their vote. just. venezuela. at the polls today for a presidential election of the candidates is expected to win outright with many analysts predicting a runoff between two former prime ministers security has been hyped due to violent political history to leaders since the fall of the soviet union us to following riots but the country since restyled its parliamentary system and the outgoing president almost back. and still not contest sunday's poll robin for us to walk is live for us in the capital bishkek so why are these elections so important this
time round robin. where you. cannot run for office again he's speaking through the constitution adrian i mean that he's going to play by the rules and so he's got to stand down and so really this is. not just the kyrgyzstan but the central asia if you can imagine more than twenty years now since the end of the soviet union and democracy here. could be many many different things but one thing. i mean it's something that is free and open and competitive usually strong men who stay in power until they die or you have those political revolution. to go on as you mentioned one hundred twenty ten and then again in two thousand and five and the other big. actually have a real choice. twelve or thirteen candidates on the ballot paper but only the two main front runners. the president's choice of candidate his ideal successor
and another man who's much younger who is the only god he has made a lot of money but he's promising real dynamism and change here whether or not he can deliver them that of course is another issue but he's going to have that choice they have. also a chance to actually. make a difference at the ballot box because the electoral system has now been teaching they have. to think of printing to make sure that the kind of thing we've seen in the past in this region lot of votes of. stuffing that sort of thing can happen but a pretty ugly campaign what are these two front runners been saying about each other. and there's been a lot of mudslinging i think. the way to characterize it is that the opposition if
you like candidate. has been able to use an awful lot of money his own money. at the campaign he's had posters up everywhere he's tended. to go for the judge. and that may have actually worked against him because the government's candidate. has had to sort of of the state behind him and it's been a lot of criticism of his opponents. having about not being enough for instance this is always an issue in kyrgyzstan it's ethnicity if your kid makes you suitable for office if you if you come of a mixed background you will somehow not the man for the job this is in a country where ethnicity is a big issue and it's a mixed country but it's been divided into. another another factor is the goldmans will north of kazakstan kyrgyzstan's begin neighbor. mix with the
kazakh president and that had a huge impact really. the government here and that's the. diplomatic route between all of the closures you name it so really it's been a it's been a very interesting election campaign probably many thanks. police in guatemala say they've captured a leader of the notorious m s thirteen street gang and. as a matter of keen was arrested over a gun attack on a hospital in guatemala city in august seven people were killed in that attack m s thirteen began in los angeles in the one nine hundred eighty s. and spread through central america. film mogul weinstein has been expelled from the body that's responsible for the oscars they cademy of motion picture arts and sciences says that more than two thirds of its board voted to reject him weinstein
has been accused of rape and sexual harassment by more than two dozen women matheson reports. this could be one of the last times harvey weinstein will be seen in an oscars red carpet the academy as it's known which hands out the film industries highest award says it doesn't want him as a member anymore this is the first time i've seen them do something like this and it does set a precedent and i ask other questions about you know other members that have candles or different things in their personal lives things like roman polanski like no gibson like bill cosby none of them ever never came up but it did with harvey and there was tremendous pressure as his power in the movie business has grown weinstein has been surrounded by beautiful people but there's been a series of sexual harassment allegations against him recently more actresses have been coming forward weinstein has apologized blaming his behavior partly on growing
up in the sixty's and seventy's when he says the rules about behavior and workplaces were different but the academy of motion picture arts and sciences says the conduct described in the allegations is repugnant of horror and unethical and weinstein must leave i think this is a watershed for hollywood that's never gotten to this point before and that house casting couch as. or are those kinds of things that kind of behavior has been going on as long as hollywood's been around quite frankly and it's been kept as hollywood story little secret in some cases some very open secret the great moguls of hollywood founders of hollywood were involved in this in one way or another you just read the history of hollywood but this time it's a different time and for the academy to take notice like this proves that eighty one films linked to one stings company hope won an oscar those and many others have earned millions of dollars but he's being sacked from
a company which bears his name though no formal charges have been brought against him the hollywood star of harvey weinstein continues to fall right matheson al-jazeera. has a film historian a professor of media at sacramento state university he says that the academy made the right decision now the victims are really being believe they're getting the benefit of the doubt maybe that's a change in social media maybe it has something to do with the current president in the white house but whatever it is doesn't seem that people think that they can just get away with criticizing these victims as just you know erratic and out of control and hysterical that that isn't going to fly anymore for whatever reason it's there there might be a host of reasons for that but whatever it is clearly if there was some doubt you know people like this have been impugned before let's say maybe a rose mcgowan word would have been in here before she came forward something like
that this this isn't that it's no longer like that this weinstein thing was a bit of well in its own way a perfect storm that that the there were and there was enough new york times it spent a month so had a grin and bear out you know scrupulously gathering evidence that's not always going to happen that way as you can imagine these accusations are going to be i predict in a few months we are will be in a sort of an accusation because he could but i think we have to keep pushing anyway . at least forty people are now known to have died in wildfires in the u.s. state of california more than ten thousand firefighters are battling blazes the worst outbreak of wildfires in the state's history more than nine hundred thousand people have been forced to leave homes as many as six thousand houses have been destroyed since the fires began last sunday. morning at three of my daughter was inside and she came out and she could see the flames coming over the side. so she told us to get out and then we had
a train and went there so we came here to see you point out here about the city it's one of the ancient city of venice is sinking but it's also shrinking it's fifty four thousand citizens are steadily leaving complaining that the city has been overrun by tourists but for the locals hoping to change that with an empty tourist campaign reports. the timeless city that tourists seem to have little time for twenty million visit each year three quarters of them only stay for twenty four hours they follow the same routes see the same sights the impact is devastating fed up residents leaving forever one thousand each year for them house prices are astronomically high the crowd unbearable italian city no longer caters for them they say. you. couldn't buy food now you can buy only.
how. to appreciate it. only for. the craft are not working in their shops. residents are protesting against the visiting cruise ships that dwarf the city a damage the environment you know is threatening to blacklist the world heritage site unless action is taken a campaign to enjoy and respect venice is under way police move on to us to sit on steps and encourage them to visit less popular attractions but there are no plans to reduce tourist numbers only we. we agree cruise ships shouldn't pass by sand marks but we need to keep five thousand jobs we are looking into a different road regarding day trippers we are working on a possible experimental closure of sun miles square tourists would have to book
a free visit to try and encourage the right type of business in the city has also introduced by putting up these posters over venice tourists can be fined two hundred forty dollars for picnicking on a bridge like this one hundred twenty dollars for littering they can also be charged for holding too long which many of these birds would be guilty of generally being annoying. piero dream is one of few remaining artist making it steer the gondolas which helped make venice famous so if they want a lot of challenges to show them the real venice not because we want to create a museum there because we think that this is the most intelligent way to visit here and the only way to keep the nancy alive. more with the flow is like then battling against the tide. one of the world's most active volcanoes is being opened up for adventurous hikers mt go in the democratic republic of congo is
home to the largest lava lake on earth the area's been affected though by conflict tourists are beginning to return as malcolm reports. perched on the rim of the crater of mount. just outside the congolese city of goma and now now inside the crater is a larger link he lost the rock did in two thousand and two and destroyed much of the city of goma has interrupted since then well the act death has been affected over the years by eastern congo as many conflicts but this area has been safe since about twenty fourteen after the government flushed out the rebel group known as then twenty three and since then so it's been coming up almost daily the popularity is growing yeah yeah the people you want to walk up here and witness this extraordinary sight.
