still remain high president trump embarks on a five nation tour to the facia november on al-jazeera. his native amazonian is increasingly struggle to survive in today's world. talk to al-jazeera travels to brazil to meet leaders of endangered tribes. and those trying to protect them at this time. hello and welcome to the al-jazeera news hour on live from my headquarters in doha
with me it is a problem coming up in the next sixty minutes at least twenty three people were killed in a gun and bomb attack in the somali capital and gunman still holding hostages and among the. leader can contest the dissent. to mark calls for opposition to direct rule. under pressure after a controversial referendum iraq's kurdish leader massoud barzani is reportedly to extend his term. you can feel the heat and smell the sulfur. will take you up close to one of africa's most active volcano. at least twenty three people have been killed in coordinated attacks in the somali
capital. it began when two car bombs exploded and gunmen stormed a hotel where the president was due to hold a meeting place a thirty hostages have been rescued from the building so far but many remain trapped inside the home of the reports from neighboring kenya. this is the target of the first explosion the two hotel a stone's throw away from the presidential palace a car was driven up to the gates of the hotel before exploding causing a blast that was hot across the city at least three heavily armed fighters then stormed into the hotel shooting anyone in sight and i'm going to rely on you i was driving a took to the front of the hotel and i saw a car exploding at the gate of the hotel i don't know where two of my clients have gone i don't know if they're dead or alive but i saw four dead bodies. and two he's popular with somali members of parliament and other government officials
the hotel was also the venue of a meeting between the somali president mohammed of the life of the module and the leaders of somalia's five regional states. the second car bomb exploded at a busy intersection in the heart of the city and near security. few expected al-shabaab fights us to cut out such brazen out talks in mogadishu so soon after the recent must've truck bombing the wost in somalia is history but evidence of the city are still coming to tom's with a talk to weeks ago which left three hundred fifty eight people dead four hundred injured and another fifty six missing. al-shabaab was a victim from the couple in two thousand and seven it has maintained its control in many rural areas of central and southern somalia since then the group was prevented resilient able to replace commanders and flight is killed by u.s. strikes and in fighting with somali forces and african union peacekeepers. fighters
recently gained control of several areas outside mogadishu including but even a strategic town forty five kilometers from the capital government officials say preventing attacks in mogadishu is proving harder districts around in the cup it'll fall to the flight as one after another mohammed atta well just it will become. well there have been a number of attacks in the somali capital since the beginning of this year the biggest strike happened on the fourteenth of october at least three hundred fifty eight people were killed and more than four hundred injured arm corp al shabaab has claimed responsibility for many of the incidents the group has between seven to eight nine rather thousand fighters partly controlled the capital mogadishu in two thousand and six before being forced out in an offensive led by the african union in two thousand and eleven although its long lost control of most towns that still dominates in many rural areas well jim out as small as
a somali journalist and he says attacks will continue if the government doesn't take action against armed groups many somalis. widely. and well. thank you very similar. but it seems the government it's not that interested in investigating and preventing and i think if they write and prevent such acts they might get someone with. but they seem to be focusing on political infighting between the president and regional leaders and that they have lost the price. they should be focusing on. rather than other political life and i think. it's the government's and that's the money. that's feeling tonight and a couple of weeks ago when i tried. three hundred so i would say the government
should be able to once the government technically is in control only in once and they should be able to manage and so with that city let's move on to other news now in catalonia is deposed later karla's purge tomorrow is calling for democratic and peaceful opposition to the spanish government's direct role at the region madrid strips catalonia of its autonomy and dissolve the regional parliament heart a battle on a declared independence on friday it's a crisis that's divided spain and catalans anderson's reports from barcelona. their sinking long live spain this is the response to the breakaway declaration from barcelona on friday the demonstrators are unionists government supporters in madrid waving spanish flags thank god that i am cattle and i am spanish and it is a moment in which we need to be more united be praised and to do something definitive
. as the demonstrators in madrid called for the jailing of the catalan leader colors pushed them all he was freely walking around his home city of jerome surrounded by supporters and media the prosecutor general is set to announce charges. more made a t.v. address to catalans calling for peaceful support. 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 capital and who have for many centuries felt different we have to overcome any threats and to act in a civil and peaceful manner. for those watching in barcelona there seem to be as many doubters as supporters. and i don't agree with making unilateral declaration because in the end even if the people who participated in october the
first have more of the g.t.c. they don't have legal that here at the seat of power the palace of the generality tat it was unclear who was really in control one secession activists said large numbers of students had contingency plans to guard the building it would have to to defend. the people. that the police not be able to arrest the president right now the spanish national flag still flies here unlike the city of jerome or where pushed him on his spending the weekend it was unceremoniously lowered but it pleased a lot of people you. know i'm not afraid of independence because this is what we wanted and we're behaving according to our politicians are leading us down the right path. in my opinion i've never felt spanish i've always had
a catalan identity so i felt very excited and at the same time worried what events may come next which may be complicated and hard. back here in barcelona the government palace is guarded by mosses the regional police force its commander. trip arrow who is already on a charge of the dish and has now been sacked along with a director above him officers have been warned they have to be neutral we're hearing now that some ministers have had their police protection withdrawn and pushed him on has had its security reduced should he returned to his office here it's possible he could be arrested and it's very likely that his supporters will come to his defense and do some of those al-jazeera barcelona. well let's get more on this now with a honorable intervene a director of iberian studies program in the freeman partly institute for international studies at stanford university he's joining us live via skype from
palo alto very good to have you with us on alex as they are so what do we need to look out for on monday in terms of how the spanish government imposes the direct rule and how the deposed government responds just how much it may or may not resist is the main issue is whether or not the catalan stations are going to return to their offices and if they do will the spanish government send the police to arrest them if that occurs will the people the students have announced that they will be in the streets trying to prevent the police from the resting their leaders. the the question right now is who over the long term is going to be able to demonstrate capacity to govern the territory it's not a simple to say will really clear the cut and republic there has to be a demonstration that has taken effect and also on the side of the drug government it's very simple to say from madrid that they deposed intercut the government plus
one hundred forty functionaries civil servants and. from now on they will be ruling coming in from madrid it has to occur it has to. be in the legitimacy to all those public workers to continue to do their jobs rather than block madrid's borders and it remains to be seen what will happen and how much of that legitimacy will also depend on how money on a at a whole imposes a direct will i mean how much pressure is he under to not further aggravate this very tense situation and drive more people into the dependence camp. that is a really very question and it has been rather surprising that he has not already acted on these instincts which unfortunately from the intentions that he voiced were going to be a very harsh take over it seems to be proceeding gradually and slowly we will see
that is the case my impression is that is all the discourse not publicans are going to be public but he is under pressure from the e.u. to avoid the harsh methods that we saw in the two first and of the next photo the twenty first off of december goes ahead as planned could that actually be in effect a referendum. but this but this time recognized by the spanish government on cotton one is independence. announcing the. economist elections for the center twenty first which is very soon is a very shocking proposition also furthermore people have not noticed that that day falls in a thursday typically elections whether in catalonia or in spain happen on a sunday for obvious reasons people go to vote on a sunday and the electoral colleges can be open on a sunday because many of them are schools they're probably buildings they're going to be busy on thursdays so it's not clear to me would would he intends to do by
choosing that particular date is he boycotting the elections himself before before allowing them to proceed secondly if indeed they go on and i'm sure that we're going to be seeing now the legal parties begin the election campaigns very very soon if they proceed then is he going to ban certain parties that is the problem and that's part of the c.p. does he will indeed install if look at government got money of the government will not be legitimate and will be resisted a very interesting and unprecedented few months ahead and spanish politics john ramon visine i thank you very much for your time and your and fights on this thank you pleasure. let's move on now and vote counting is underway and iceland for the second parliamentary election in two years early tallies suggest that the ruling independence party is ahead followed by the left green movement prodding mr b.

of it. mary oma a mother of two says it was peaceful until now she spent the night out on the street scared she and her children would be burnt in their home. while mom had to go on what we as women are so angry because we slipped outside our kids was scared they were even storms being thrown one just missed my son's i you can imagine tear gas being thrown and i have children we heard more of the same from other people living here. to quickly turn to the political tensions they say they don't want a president to. to stay in office while just a third of voters turned out results of the presidential rerun so far indicates that kenyatta has more than a seven million votes and many in this area are angry it's not easy moving around this area groups of protesters are blocking roads ready to stop anyone they don't
want to round stops are closed some boarded up their owners here they'll be looted there are many police officers patrolling the area but many here say they don't feel protected police are accused of using excessive force when dispersing protesters human rights groups say they've killed between fifty and sixty people following the election sometimes there which fired tear gas canisters at crossroads there also goes all died because police are cutting out operations in this desert edibles house to house opposition sometimes kicking rebels and women people out but diplomats and beating them. the police say they're trying to stop the violent protests and criminals. reality for many years though is trying to survive a political battle being fought on the streets. in nairobi we're plenty more ahead on the news hour including continues to deny involvement in
the bizarre case of sanuk attacks on the u.s. embassy in. verily in iran were growers are trying to maximize the country's flour. and it's a record breaking night and day on the seventh of a football world cup but india the other will have the details and spoke to. the leader of iraq's kurdish region is reportedly not planning to extend his presidential term past november parliament is due to meet on sunday to redistribute the palace held by muscle but as he's been facing mounting pressure to quit following september's controversial secession referendum iraq's government opposed the vote calling it unconstitutional stephanie decker has more from ebi. there hasn't been an official announcement but certainly according to sources in kurdish
media it seems that present massoud barzani has sent a letter to parliament where he says he will launch be seeking an extension of his presidential term and this is expected to be debated in parliament on sunday what it means basically his term would have ended november the first technically legally his term as president expired in two thousand and fifteen now elections are supposed to been held november first present result he has always said he would not have run in these elections that have now been postponed for another eight months time it's complicated but the bigger picture is certainly significant once we hear an announcement that he will not be extending his term he will no longer be president he was behind this controversial referendum against the advice even of his allies and the backlash that we have seen here too that has been incredibly unexpected people here absolutely shocked about what has gone on and what continues to go on so certainly it will be a significant announcement it is what we expect but again we haven't had the
official announcement as of yet a mass grave of thirty seven bodies has been discovered near the libyan city of benghazi that's according to local sources they say those killed opponents of renegade general kiley for hoffa they were discovered in an area under his control the bodies of signs of torture and gunshots it's also been reported that half a has opened an investigation into the incident. the u.n. emergency relief coordinator says hey shocked by the humanitarian conditions in yemen he made the comments at the end of a five day visit and he called on all sides to do much more to respect and to national law and be reports. shocking and horrendous that's how the u.n. emergency relief coordinator describes the suffering he's seen in yemen during his five day visit to severely malnourished children hospitals with barely any electricity and met health workers who have not been paid for months it's been
shocking to see the terrible impact of this manmade conflict all parties in yemen and those outside who support and have influence over them must do much more to ensure they respect international humanitarian law and protect civilians. saudi arabia and its allies launched a military campaign in march twenty fifteen against toothy rebels of forces loyal to former president ali abdullah saleh the saudi led coalition has been bombing the capital and other parts of yemen to try to restore the internationally recognized government of president abbott rebbie man so heidi heidi based temporarily an agency says the who these must disband but they insist they yemen's legitimate authority and accuse him of being a saudi puppet that. we already to work towards a solution we say to all yemeni groups let's find a solution the foreign powers involved are i'm here to fight for you they are here
for their interests we're ready to walk towards a solution but that should be at least a response from the other side instead of waiting for decisions to come from abu dhabi or saudi arabia. well the the say they're ready to talk they're also threatening to intensify their retaliation against saudi arabia and strike military targets in the u.a.e. . more than ten thousand yemenis have been killed and almost forty thousand injured over two and a half years of fighting human rights groups accuse both sides of committing atrocities the u.n. is urging all sides to negotiate a political deal until they do the world's number one humanitarian crisis may only get worse victory gates and be al jazeera egypt has launched a major shake up of its security services one week after an attack in giza province that left at least sixteen police officers dead mohamad thirty of hegarty has been named the new chief of staff of the armed forces here places like more to ghazi the

said was a series of staff falling ill because of some kind of sonic attack now the u.s. did not provide any evidence and said that it could not establish exactly what the so-called attack was but now cuba is fighting back the foreign minister is visiting d.c. at the moment and this is what he had to say. your money is showing the so-called attacks are on just whatever the type of attack whatever the incident it is completely false the foreign minister also described the whole incident as and i quote political manipulation aimed at damaging bilateral relations now important to note that the u.s. has never directly accused cuba of being responsible for the illness of its diplomats however it did say that cuba has not done enough to investigate the causes of those cuba's position very clearly there is no such attacks underway
there have been no attacks and even if there were certainly cuba has got nothing to do with it but all of this is got to be seen as well in the context of the trumpet ministration relations with cuba we're reestablished under a bomber under the trumpet ministration things have changed substantially from the very beginning a president making very clear he is not that happy with these increasingly warm relations with cuba now we've seen a continual deterioration emerging from these claims of some kind of covert sonic attack. chinese government is struggling to control a growing number of new h.i.v. cases the country has one of the highest rates of new infections in latin america now the government has launched a campaign to target high risk groups are latin america editor no three and human reports from santiago. forty eight year old sandra who asks that we not use her full name was pregnant with her sixth child when she discovered her husband had

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 over there 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 harbors perhaps the first step of the myanmar government to appropriate the land. from ranger 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 ranger refugees but there will have to be other questions 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. the number of refugees heading to graves has surged in the past two months put in a huge strain on the facilities camps built to host seven thousand refugees and are dealing with twice that number most arrive on the island of less balls from where john swap last reports. these afghan syrians and africans are living in a tent city there isn't enough room for them in moria the government run camp on lesbos and they are vigilant about refugees who are in the camp crushing their lunch rivals on the eastern islands in the aegean sea have increased from an average of fifteen a day to almost one hundred a day in the last six weeks all seeking asylum in greece in the terms of the

lava lake you like a new feeling. because it's very beautiful nearly one hundred fifty people were killed in the nearby city of goma when it last erupted in two thousand and two. and this is where it started they never gave me inside. and then when they arrived here explored came out but don't be afraid it's not up and. it takes about five hours to climb much of the way following an old larger stream. of molten rock blasted out long ago form the part. written directions of come from split side ranges say from here it's better to go up and down if it happens again from here at the summit and you can just about see hills in the distance which are in neighboring rwanda the borders between here and there and here is
a crater for my previous eruption lake just about visible and on it sure is congo's eastern city of goma and here is the rim of the crater of mount. and down there is a lava lake and from where we're standing you can feel the heat and smell the sulfur it was the noxious gases that killed many in two thousand and two and whose plumes attract tourists today congo's conflicts have affected access in the past but it's been open to visitors since twenty fourteen just amazing mindblowing. so beautiful the walk up here than you can see the spectacle it's just amazing that it is can't get up here without the help of the porters from the villages below the volcano tourism is growing at it but by the much needed income for about eighty families. this walk up says a lot it does space school fees for us children build our houses buy you seeds for
farming and also take care of other needs. but it when the sun sets in the smoke clouds clear that it glows brightest it crosses constantly cracks the liquid rocks him as below and reveals the beauty of a lethal lover malcolm webb al-jazeera. in the democratic republic of congo now for years barriers to international trade have had iranian businesses for the lifting of sanctions iranian florists to cash in on a multi billion dollar global market same bus ride report 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 street lights 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 many runs greenhouses in vera 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 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 revenue money which. 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 with the main flower export in countries like hall and we don't produce flowers in mass quantities 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 unsold 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 greenhouses 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 markets will be money well spent as well as a chance for the country to show off its flower power is in zero very mean iran. so ahead on the news hour federer shines once again and his hometown details the passing out.
