9:03 pm
well sue the gun four thousand now come to on and somali special fully police and security guards of the hotel have managed to kill the three or four fighters who gained entry into the hotel immediately after the car exploded and now we've been told by rescue workers that there are a few of the buildings around the hotel that call ups due to the big blast and they say some people might be under the rubble of course this is a hotel that is very popular with government officials members of parliament live in there and this could probably be one of the reasons why al-shabaab has chosen to attack is but it was also the venue of a meting as you said there between president mohammed aglow for you on the leaders
9:04 pm
of somalia's regional states five of them and they were very to drop a plumb for what the government is calling a massive also against al shabaab of course this comes just two weeks after the worst atrocity also in mogadishu that attack also by al-shabaab is there a sense really that this group is gaining ground again in this particular area. yes indeed and this is a major concern for not only mogadishu residents but citizens across all molly al-shabaab has been cutting out brazen attacks in recent past the wost of which happened on the fourteenth of october barely fourteen they say go no one expected them to carry out such an attack so cruel to the time they cut it out on a talk which of course the people of somalia but when you come from the unger
9:05 pm
people have against al-shabaab they are also really frustrated with the government which has shown that it is good the very weak security operators and it's one of the things the government wants to address with the missing between the president and the regional states al shabaab has also been taking some key districts around mogadishu including the town of buddy where about forty five kilometers away from the couple told us that to dig down on one of the major roads entering the city and one. used in the past to carry out these are toxic and government officials now say that with these districts falling one after another it's becoming increasingly difficult for them to avoid attacks like the ones that happened this evolving many thanks a moment for bringing us that update. let's take you now to spain where we've heard from catalans regional leader for the first time since madrid sacked him dissolved
9:06 pm
his parliament and called a new election from minister mariano rajoy impose the measures they missed on stage his declaration of independence color speech to months reply as they measured he's calling for democratic opposition to madrid's takeover. there's a message that i want to convey is that what i'm saying is that we have to be patient but actually have to have perseverance and. it is clear to us that the best way to defend what we have achieved so far is to have a democratic opposition to article one five five this is the response to the deliberate action against catalans who have for many centuries felt different we have to overcome any threats and to act in a civil and he still manner or not wish to use for. life or is him barcelona and indeed by the square which should be the seat of power and catalonia under who's in charge. well what's happening
9:07 pm
right now is. a whole set of. people. but. i think was struggling probably to understand. and hopefully we can come back to america while when we establish a bestselling. hunger in the democratic republic of congo has soared in the last year leaving seven point seven million people in urgent need of food aid in the cut region more than three million people that's one quarter of the population are going hungry and need urgent assistance and internal power struggle there has given way to tribal violence that has also left thousands dead since august twenty sixth seen with more than
9:08 pm
a million people displaced in there's been an alarming thirty percent rise over the past year of acute malnutrition in the region the world food program says it needs twenty seven million dollars to support its work from september to december twenty seventh team and the executive director of the un's world food programme david beasley is in the d r c on a four day mission he spoke to us about the situation from goma in the east of the country. but the bottom line is we need money and we need money fast we're literally are talking about in just the cost side region of three point two million people that are dearly malnourished i mean it's bad as bad as it gets literally hundreds of thousands of children if we don't receive funds and food and access immediately will die over the next couple of months now and the r.c. alone you have seven point seven million people severely food insecure but almost
9:09 pm
half of that is in the side region all because of nothing but man made conflict it is wrong it's on the step the bill this is a country being international community has spent billions and to continue to have this type of mismanagement in government and corruption in conflict is absolutely unacceptable from the international community and we're doing everything we can to see innocent victims of conflict then you have thousands upon thousands that are hiding in the forest there heidi you know and you have militia you have rebels also in the bush if thank just in the past couple days our team we we've got pictures of videos of homes of villages huts that have been burned down to the ground we have see pictures of the capitated men and women and children it's a very desperate situation in the region. well i think we've and our problems with
9:10 pm
the link to new and simmons is live for us and you just explain to us now and it is in power now in catalonia. good question because no one is quite sure if you look at the square here the government building that overlooks it the spanish national flag is in place it hasn't been brought down there is no evident presence within the building we can see the police guarding it but no presence here but it is a weekend and the president is in fact in drona which is his home city and he's been walking around quite freely and addressed the country on television that clip you saw earlier on his supporters saying that this is going to be a tough very tough time but overall they're in favor of moving forward with the session of course the detractors and there are many of them it has to be said it
9:11 pm
sort of seems like fifty fifty when you walk around asking people in the city they say that this is going the wrong way everyone is quite concerned about what's going to happen next because madrid has made it quite clear that police chiefs are being replaced and they have orders to move in and make sure that there's no civil disobedience furthermore the government intends to replace the ministers here and push them out of self there will be the prosecutor general looking at the situation on monday with a view to pressing charges that could mean arrests and it could mean trouble with me right now is quite a prominent political activist here in barcelona please step forward and join us on this program on the radio silver gray what do you say to this situation are you prepared to go out and try and protect that building and stop the police. from
9:12 pm
entering it and arresting the president because he is according to the prime minister of spain guilty of illegal acts or certainly i'm ready to to protect decoupling institutions because we have a mandate because it got one government got a mandate from the gut on people to proclaim in-band and that's what happened here if madrid tries to rest with the morning or any other minister of it would be another example that they are not willing to engage in dialogue in a negotiation the only one mediation of forgotten people so of course me and many other of my fellow gotland will be here for that thing follow but put it this way pushed him on set of his t.v. address that has to be peaceful but he does want support however how can it be peaceful if you're going to try to stop security forces from arresting a president that's not going to be an easy situation that's going to involve
9:13 pm
violence as. by elements even moderate ones violence today place i mean we've seen scenes that are unsettling in democracy you cannot just order to police forces to do politics when you have a political problem you address it doing politics you cannot just ask the spanish police to come here and arrest the president because the cut them people do not want this what about this division now that's even more of a gulf between yourselves and those that feel proud of their culture but they don't want secession i understand that there's a lot of people who do not want in the band but i would like to remind them that there was a referendum on the first of october and a majority of those that voted voted in favor of in the bands and the law was very clear if we have a mandate that is a majority of people voting in favor of independence we will declare independence.
9:14 pm
but it wouldn't a better solution have bean elections at the end of the day to actually go back to democracy as a savior really if you will if if the support really was there in a real majority for a push him on his party and secession then that would have been a clear answer i don't know if elections will be in the solution to this problem but if you propose to call an early election and you have madrid that says we are going ahead with the article one hundred five which involves removing the leadership removing the head of the police removing the head off that got them on public media of course we can actions and it would solve the situation because if you have another election and there is another majority in favor of independent will you try to arrest put them on again because he has another monday please bring the benchwork with tough madrid done if in another election the point abandons parties one. thank you very much indeed for joining us so they have
9:15 pm
a sewer clear. views from someone on the independence side of the fence of course there are many millions who would disagree here in catalonia right now there is a goal of dividing the two sets of opinion and it's unclear how this is going to move forward but you see a long way to go andrew symonds there with the very latest from barcelona an official results from kenya's repeat presidential elections suggest president who are kenyatta as one more than ninety seven percent of the vote but his mandate appears to be weak turnout is estimated to be less than thirty five percent and that studio opposition supporters heeding a call to boycott the poll the election has also been marred by violence with voting suspended in some opposition strongholds from me to miller reports from the capital nairobi. less than twenty four hours ago the syria in the western part of nairobi was relatively peaceful there weren't any
9:16 pm
demonstrations or protests following thursday's election but now that's all changed this was an area that housed at least thirty shops a restaurant a bar and even homes for people living in the same area where he was attacked by a mob of protesters the people here are calling them gangs they say this area was petrol bombed bringing down any infrastructure and they've been left with nothing william is a painter who operated a small business in this area and when we were talking to you and you said that you felt victimized i felt victimized course expected is one we had almost got some people would come and bargain oh no businesses do somebody is going to die today but was is not. so we expected because they don't go out of business unfortunately the police came to us i mean they took advantage of nothing he came
9:17 pm
he burned down here the real cancer the purchase of choice of oils bread so quickly you know when they made your own very big trigger finger or you would think. that you would be to be choking dari dunes. we're very sorry. about us thank you william now william is just one of many people young who doesn't know what he'll do next he doesn't know where he'll go what they have tried to do is they've put up this makeshift fence to at least try and protect what's left me isn't very much when we moved out of this area further down the street we were met by a very aggressive mob of people who said we couldn't move any further they said they they would chase us out of the area if we try to stay too long this situation in where is is unsafe it's tense and people here say they're worried.

9:23 pm
a massive military response effective and overwhelming tony badly if following developments from the south korean capital. there were strong words from the united states defense secretary he was here in seoul on part of a two day visit partly to discuss the defense of the peninsula which is an annual thing between the u.s. and south korea and partly to pave the way for president transfers it on the seventh and eighth of november now that visit in itself is creating increased tensions here and general mattis was at pains to warn north korea that any nuclear attack with weapons would be met with a very very massive military response and he did intimate that north korea could not win in that situation having said that his tone in the last two days has been more conciliatory than that of president trump you may remember his fire and fury speech at the united nations in august and also his threat to totally destroy north
9:24 pm
korea he has resorted to a word a war of words of mass destruction and people are worried that the world may turn to weapons there was a lot of concern here the united states is upped its defenses its bought three naval carrier groups into the region it's flown it's moved its five stealth fighters to japan just in case the president trumps visit produces some kind of reaction from north korea they've conducted six nuclear test most of those have been underground but the north korean foreign minister has warned that they will conduct an atmospheric nuclear test and who knows what that will provoke but there is a lot of concern on the korean peninsula that will happen what will happen general mattis is said basically the actions of north korea are provoking and accelerating the situation and causing a greater possibility of conflict on the korean peninsula but he also stressed that the need was for diplomacy for talking he said the united states would not want war
9:25 pm
it wanted a denuclearization of the canary a korean peninsula now also said that he couldn't imagine any situation whereby the united states would accept a nuclear north korea now north korea is well on its way to being a nuclear power though so something has to give the big question here is what will give and who will give it. u.s. media is reporting that a federal grand jury has approved the first charges in the investigation into russian meddling in last year's presidential election the judges are said to still be sealed under orders from a federal judge special counsel robert muller a former f.b.i. director is leading the investigation is looking into whether truong campaign officials colu did with russian efforts a robbery and also has more from washington d.c. . we don't know yet who has been indicted by special counsel robert muller in the grand jury working with him or what the charges against them might be but we do
9:26 pm
know who has been looking at in his probe of russian meddling into the u.s. election and possible obstruction of justice in interference in the probe and the financial activities of some of the trump family businesses and some of the trump associates among the people who have been looked at very closely are michael flynn he served briefly as the national security advisor in donald trump's white house as before being fired another person is paul man a ford who ran the campaign for time in two thousand and sixteen he has extensive dealings had extensive dealings with ukrainian political parties but failed to. declare himself as an agent of a foreign power as is required by u.s. law other people that the probe has focused on our rights priebus who served as

9:28 pm
have a fair amount of heavy rain over parts of turkey at the moment the first system is already edged eastwards away from turkey so here it is over lebanon making its way over the northern parts of iraq but then behind it there's a cluster of rather intense showers there also affecting us in cyprus and then more wet weather working its way into the northwestern parts of turkey at the moment now that system is going to gradually track its way eastwards there for sunday so sunday again it's a very wet weather over cyprus over parts of turkey and then up towards the northeast and ahead of it maybe some clouds maybe the old spot of rain perhaps but for most of us it is dry for baghdad it looks right certainly thirty three degrees will be our maximum temperature forcing couples will be getting to around twenty four or twenty five as we head through the next few days further towards the south and here in doha we're looking at temperatures around thirty five degrees at the
9:29 pm
moment and they're dropping down to around twenty five or twenty six at night at the moment for the south also a fair amount of cloud with us it's a law about twenty eight degrees will be our maximum here as we head through sunday on monday a little bit more in the way of trying to bring us a few more outbreaks of rain there but also get to around twenty nine degrees down towards the southern parts of africa far more in the way of unsettled weather here you see this area of rain that extends all the way down towards mozambique the wettest of the weather is in the north tracking westwards. with. short films of good and inspiration. small stories of three young women challenging the world around them.
9:30 pm
acts at this time the story that had the greatest impact on me would probably be the magic on a massacre thirty four miners died and we were there were no very few television things on that spot at that time to dismiss some of that story develops the story and films and. i like to tune that i want to view in malaysia like al-jazeera english because the news is not sent it and you don't miss any of the news and you call them based on like.
9:31 pm
a comeback reminder of the top stories aaron al-jazeera council only has deposed later colace which the mom has called for continued democratic opposition to the spanish government takeover of the region two car bombs have exploded in somalia's capital mogadishu killing at least ten people says it carried out it's. the world food program is pleading for more money to help deal with food shortages in the democratic republic of congo it's a seven point seven million people are in urgent need of food aid. myanmar's government says it has put in place a plan to harvest rice from land abandoned bahrain henge a family is in northern iraq and states more than six hundred thousand revenge a half fled to bangladesh since late august after a military crackdown by myanmar's military human rights groups say the decision to harvest the rice raises questions about whether the refugees well ever be allowed
9:32 pm
back florence louis has more from young gone there are a couple of ways to look at this one is that this is simply a practical solution the rice crops are ripe for harvesting and if they were left to just stand in the fields they would go to waste so the myanmar government has put in place a plan to harvest the crops bringing in combine harvesters and laborers to do the work and agricultural ministry spokesman has told us that the local government is in charge of the harvest and the eventual fail and the proceeds of the sale will go to the local government although there are no details on how they plan to use it but the other issue is this raises ethical questions as the asia director of human rights watch puts it you really can't call a crop ownerless when you've used a campaign of arson and violence to drive the owners from their land and this is what the myanmar military has been accused of doing and the other issue pertains to future use is this harvard's perhaps the first step of the myanmar government to
9:33 pm
appropriate the land from revenge or refugees who've been driven to bangladesh now if it is it will raise other questions what about repatriation and resettlement of the refugees now granted we are a long way from that bangladesh and myanmar officials haven't yet worked out details of how they plan to repatriate range of refugees but they will have to be other questions that that need to be asked such as where will they return to and what will they return to if their farms and villages are no longer there. for more on this i'm joined by daniel agger a who is senior lecturer at greenwich university and a former legal adviser at the international commission of jurists. and thanks very much for coming in first of all i think i would like to get your reaction on this whole idea in a minute she is saying that the rice feels that the range where have a saying where only less well this speaks of
9:34 pm
a larger human rights violation and across me amar and that is the system of land tenure is broken the majority of people don't have legal rights to the land in which they live and work and it lends itself to land confiscation and a government that is has policies that result in hundreds of thousands of people fleeing land expropriation is not really a big step the military and the command has talked about bengalis returning to their original land as a kind of reason for this ethnic cleansing as it's being called but is this part of it as well do you think that this whole wanting to take over the slums not just because of the rice but possibly rich and other things there are a lot of natural resources that are under exploited in wreck and state but i don't think that this is the land grabbing is the cause of this conflict it's an ethnic religious nationalist conflict but it seems likely that land grabbing will be one
9:35 pm
of the results what do they do now bangladesh is saying they don't want to stay there that that is being appropriated by the minute change one to three hundred do now well unfortunately this shouldn't be a big surprise to the international community human rights organizations have been warning both the international community the diplomats in me amar and the government that this is a precarious situation and that this kind of exodus could be a result of these human rights violations international community needs to now support the rohingya in bangladesh make sure the cause. don't just fall in one country but also the neighboring countries need to be involved they need to put pressure on me m r two a to uphold human rights and finally leadership is needed at the national level not just from aung san suu kyi and the government but public intellectuals academics civil society organizations all need to speak of for human rights and reckon state
9:36 pm
very good to get your thoughts thanks very much gary tuchman is there a pleasure and i get right to hollywood actress who sparked a global campaign against sexual harassment and sell the rally that she was silent for twenty years but won't stay silent any longer rose mcgowan is one of more than thirty women who have accused producer harvey weinstein of rape or sexual harassment chris is telling me takes a look at whether this will affect change in the workplace by now it's a familiar story a young woman trying to make it as an actress put in a compromising position by a hollywood power broker karens claire is one of hundreds of women to come forward with her experience of sexual harassment in recent weeks it started with this man filmmaker harvey weinstein who lost his job after it was revealed he paid millions to silence his victims since then the spotlight has fallen on other powerful men including schoolers alleged harasser the filmmaker james toshack amazon studios

executive roy price fox news anchor bill o'reilly and fashion photographer terry richardson have lost jobs as a result of accusations and even ninety three year old former president george h.w. bush has been forced to apologize for groping women in his wheelchair i feel like i have a voice. and i don't have a fear anymore of saying it because i realized so many people went through it once it kind of felt like we could come out of the hole then i felt like ok i can i can be a voice to any social worker will tell you the problem is much bigger than hollywood one in five women say they've suffered some form of sexual harassment or abuse people are afraid of losing their job they're afraid of being reprimand. retaliated against isolated so even if they're legally protected that they could just face a lot of kind of social isolation at work but women traditionally under represented

in leadership positions are increasingly finding strength in numbers whether it's here at the detroit women's convention where they're working to get more women elected as you can see it is a global movement or on social media where the need to hash tag has been used by millions of people sharing their own stories of harassment it's a movement according to the executive director of un women that is having an impact around the world gender based violence is a universal problem what is also called one and what binds women in the mets away the. is the fact that alone often when it happens and what makes the meat to test tick exciting is suddenly someone else to stand with you. and your school karen is still performing and teaching drama as well as an important lesson for women how to use their voice kristen salumi al-jazeera new

york. al-jazeera is demanding the release of its journalists or hussein who has now been in an egyptian prison for more than three hundred ten days is accused of broadcasting false news to spread chaos which he and al jazeera strongly deny my word has repeatedly complained of mistreatment in jail he was arrested in december visiting his family the british navy has dismissed nine sailors after they failed the drugs test the career served on eight u.s. vigilant one of four royal navy submarine which carry nuclear missiles earlier this month a submarines captain was relieved of his command after what was described as an inappropriate relationship with a crew member. for years barriers to international trade have held iranian industries back from blossoming but the potential of the flower industry is something that could help the country's florists cash in on a global industry worth one hundred four billion dollars
9:40 pm
a year so what's holding them back same the seraph it went to vironment just outside the capital tehran to find out the fourteenth century persian poet hafez once wrote the roses beauty is very dear enjoy its petals when it is here in iran they take that quite literally from finally manicured streets to the vendors who sell roses by the basket for happy and sad occasions flowers are a part of daily life in iran. some streetlights even get their own flower beds. but iranians say they haven't been able to realize the industry's potential. one of the biggest challenges we face in iran is a lack of modern technology most of the expertise exists in europe and we haven't been able to transfer that knowledge to iran. runs greenhouses in very i mean a town a few hours outside to her own he says when sanctions were lifted after the nuclear deal things got better but to be competitive in the international marketplace
9:41 pm
iranian growers will need more help all the growers we've spoken to say the same thing they wish that their government would focus a little bit more time on helping them modernize their industry not just because of the economic potential but because unlike the things you normally associate with iran oil and gas nuclear energy growers say there's nothing controversial about flowers they're just beautiful and they make people happy. it might be a hard sell after all the global oil and gas industry is worth nearly one point seven trillion dollars a year and you can't run a car on flowers but he says in iran flowers can be a serious business too and that income from the agriculture sector could someday rival oil revenues. much as we care about seats in opec i think we should pay even more attention to the seats in the food and agriculture organization and pave the way for foreign investors in iran but getting anything made in iran to international markets is still a challenge. the main problem now is the high cost of exports we cannot compete
9:42 pm
with the main flower export in countries like hall and we don't produce flowers in mass quantities and since the production is low it's mostly for domestic consumption but even half the flowers consumed domestically go to waste dying in transit are left on sold once they get to market. in a meeting with president rouhani i asked him to help our producers with low interest long term loans so they could modernize their greenhouse modernization is very expensive. those who are passionate about growing and selling flowers will tell you it's one of the best jobs in iran and that investing in new technology and infrastructure to reach on top of markets will be money well spent. as well as a chance for the country to show off its flower power. zero very mean iran. so what is still to come on the news hour an on call brawl sees two players ejected
