lone welcome i'm peter dhabi you're watching the news our live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes a ten hour siege at a hotel in the somali capital is over but at least twenty three dead. under pressure after a controversial referendum iraq's kurdish leader is reportedly considering standing down. i. can use opposition leaders contemplate their next move was the fallout from the presidential election rerun continues. down there. and from where we're standing you can feel the heat and smell the sulfur will take you up close to one of africa's most active volcanoes. says it was behind a siege at a hotel in the somali capital mogadishu that lasted for more than ten hours at
1:02 pm
least twenty three people died firefighters stormed the building on saturday after twin bombings in the area and took people hostage the security forces killed two attackers and arrested three others catherine sawyer reports now from neighboring kenya. hours after the attack on a hotel in mogadishu volunteers and rescue workers still clearing the debris and pulling out. the siege is over and once again residents of this city. just two weeks after another attack the wost in somalia's history close to four hundred people were killed and dozens are still missing out how. two of the attackers were killed and three others were. battle between security forces and the terrorists we don't yet know the official death toll the rescue is still ongoing but the fight is over most of those killed by security forces this hotel is popular with government officials and members of parliament it's very close to the
1:03 pm
presidential palace and the president was supposed to hold a meeting here with somalia's five regional states and i'm going over really well i was driving a truck at the front of the hotel that 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. claimed responsibility the group remains active in mogadishu and other up in areas even after being pushed out by african union forces and the somali government and despite constant asked tracks by u.s. forces in areas still under the group's control government officials say they have prevented more attacks but keeping people safe is proving difficult as all continues to take control of surrounding districts catherine soy al jazeera ok let's get more on that for you talking to us now. he's formally a somali minister of planning and international cooperation he joins us live now
1:04 pm
from istanbul. pushing the events of the past thirty six hours together with what happened ten days ago some people are saying this is somalia's nine eleven is that a correct interpretation of what we're seeing. certainly the top or fourteen mega bombing or somalia is nine eleven over four hundred people killed many more are still missing and the human and financial loss was simply unimaginable i think people are are are absolutely outraged right now and are waiting accountability by the government and i think there is just too many can dollars is going on coming out of the government right now people want to hear that there is going to be some tangible steps that the government will take to prevent repeated attacks by the terrorist group al-shabaab in mogadishu and other places what can the government do
1:05 pm
well i think first of all what we need to do is a paradigm shift in the standard operating procedures of the security services i think the soldiers are doing everything they can but they're not getting the necessary equipment the intelligence that they require our intelligence agency is still unable to simply eavesdrop on phone calls and many of these are tax are organized by people who are using mobile phones sim cards are not registered yet and more importantly a lot of financial transactions is still take place with mobile money and that is virtually unmonitored by the by the federal government of somalia and that is simply unacceptable in this day and age seems to be taking this and it seems to be capable of taking this to a whole new level is this the beginning of a new campaign on the part. well i think al-shabaab has been at it for well over
1:06 pm
a decade now and it has slowed you had time where they would you know increase the number of attacks and the seriousness of attacks their top or fourteen mega bomb which by the way they have not claimed because probably it was the worst and they fear that it would create a backlash which you already did certainly was another level i think the more important thing though here is the government needs to do a little bit more not only on the security front but on the political front right now the big political crisis in somalia is not conducive to security and stability of the country the federal government is in is in major crisis with federal member states and various other political groups and that is not helping the government i was recently in mogadishu a week ago and the entire city is simply impassable right now about ninety percent of the roads are closed people are having hard time moving from one location to the
1:07 pm
other and we're still having attacks of this is scale so we really need to rethink our strategy in terms of how we approach the whole security system but more importantly also the political front. in istanbul thank you. bodies of thirty six and identified people have been found in a village near the eastern libyan city of benghazi some of the victims are signs of torture and gunshot wounds to the head locals say they were critics of the renegade general he five ta who controls the area he has ordered an investigation. kenya's main opposition leader has branded the presidential election rerun a sham and called for a new poll within ninety days. church leaders and supporters in nairobi a day after the repeat vote was suspended due to violence so far the election commission is putting the president of the kenyatta ahead of all other candidates with ninety seven percent of the vote but doing a spoke out against the post-election violence that's left at least six people dead
1:08 pm
. all. yes ok our correspondent joins us live here on the news from nairobi mohammed you've been gauging reaction there at the highest level what are people saying. well it depends on who you talk to you talk to the opposition supporters they will
1:09 pm
tell you that this is a shambolic election the numbers being bundled down released by the electoral commission they say a lie and of the government tinkering with the results as we speak they point out this was a much more easy and quick process given that people want only one vote and that it shouldn't have taken all this long for results to be announced now when you talk to the government or not is to just go from speaking to the deputy president of kenya william ruto. has been out for two posts and they have gotten more than seven point five million votes cost. for president. so much is happening in terms of the to and fro coming from the different parties but what is most concerning to people. of militias who have been cutting out talks
1:10 pm
on. in the slums of nairobi and also in some parts of the country that is what has many kenyans concerned how can those people who support mr kenya say this election was free and fair i mean just watching the pictures a few days ago there were obviously areas that were democratically a complete vacuum people weren't even getting to the polling stations the international observers weren't going to the polling stations. the day when people. voting in some areas particularly positions hold. whole different country. from the government. hold elections again in both places they've also been people who just simply.
1:11 pm
the government is saying is it is their constitutional right anyone who wants to stay away from the election to stay away on. how many votes on hospital. bills votes or they say caused. problem with. many thanks. now the leader of iraq's kurdish region is reportedly planning not to extend his presidential term most of the buzz on he has been under pressure to quit following september's controversial succession referendum the vote triggered more than ten days of fighting between iraqi and kurdish forces the parliament of iraq's kurdish region will meet in the coming hours to discuss a plan to redistribute powers as held today by mr step dekker joins us live now from erbil stuff why have we not heard from mr buzz on the on camera himself talking about this. it's
1:12 pm
a very good question i don't have the alter to that it seems to me that you know the people here are being drip fed that final moment now he has always said that he would not run in the november first election but you know the actual fact when that is confirmed when it happens it is a big deal peter so for the last two weeks or so there's been rumors that he would be stepping down he wouldn't be extending his term and then he was supposed to announce it a few days ago there are rumors that went away parliament was supposed to convene yesterday that didn't happen and then yesterday sort of throughout the afternoon in the evening more and more sources were coming out saying the president sent a letter here to kurdistan regional parliament where he was suggesting a way to you know disperse his powers for the interim period of course november first is wednesday the parliament voted to extend to postpone the elections by eight months so i think we have to wait and see what exactly gets debated here to close session but we are expecting them to tell us something at the end of that about how it looks pretty certainly all indications seem to be that he will not be
1:13 pm
the president as of wednesday going forward but does that mean as far as the people that do his job or whoever follows him if he steps away from being in office does he or does his family more to the point i guess step away from being in power. that's the crucial issue here the barzani's are you know a dynastic family when it comes to this region together with the taliban is there. been you know splits and divisions among those two families for a very long time many people will tell you just because president. is no longer officially the president it means his powers are not weighed it is perhaps a way of simply sort of keeping the family's hold on power there are rumors that perhaps that post in the interim will go to his nephew the prime minister next of on barzani he also has his son must who is in charge of the security forces the intelligence would have apparatus so that barzani still have a substantial hold on power but i think you know this sort of off the mark for the fall out of that referendum is that you do have divisions in finite internal
1:14 pm
kurdish politics the opposition parties have a louder voice they're trying to really you know play on this card where they blame him for what we've seen unexpected really loss of territory disputed territory of course and also the fact that the federal government has said that it is going to take back control of all the border crossings that the k r g could told they could do that but it really is it's a massive step back from the status quo ante that they had to certainly his critics will tell you that what he wanted to be his legacy has become a huge mistake but he had one of this peter let's wait and see what we're going to hear over the next coming hours coming out of department understood one last brief point stuff does he risk making himself unpopular because the turnout was very healthy and the percentage of the vote in favor of secession was relatively speaking huge. well you know barzani is always said actually was quoted in two thousand and sixteen saying you know the day that there was an independent kurdistan will be the day that i will cease to be the president he wanted this to
1:15 pm
be his legacy you know the referendum he said he what it was there right he said and it was simply a yes or no vote it wasn't legally binding supporters of him will say well you know according to the iraqi constitution this should have been resolved the disputed territories at least ten years ago so we're just going to go ahead and do it anyway it wasn't anything that had a legally binding point now his opposition will tell you that it is all about timing and he was warned by everyone by the united states by his allies by turkey who was a neighboring bride and that this was not the right time according to sources he was offered a deal to postpone the referendum by two years and to those accounts certainly he went ahead anyway and certainly now we're seeing you know the k r g regionally isolated because you have iran together with turkey together with baghdad now trying to forge their own way you have the united states who pretty much said iraq needs to stay a unified country and the fallout is something that i don't think even he would have expected so i think it's going to be very interesting if we finally hear from
1:16 pm
him what he is going to say people will tell you he's not going to take responsibility and say you made a mistake again this is all speculation but i think it is significant to see what he has to say how he has assesses what has happened here over the last few weeks steph thanks very much. thank you for your own news stories who haven't done. so much my daughter read piece of good news for filipino searching for loved ones who disappeared in the fight against my soul but others weren't so lucky. and cuba fights back against allegations that it was behind mysterious attacks on the u.s. embassy in havana. and in sports news operations underway in the horse pakistan has to host its most important critiquing the noise. spain's government says the deposed leader called a speech
1:17 pm
a moment will be allowed to run in regional elections. which is calling for a democratic and peaceful opposition to madrid's direct rule of catalonia the region lost its political autonomy after the catholic vote to declare independence sort of the latest for us here on the news. what do you think will happen next. something for everyone in. this country certainly today. the people who do i want to remain. on the streets making their voices heard just about an hour before they start this protest and they're ready tens of thousands of people probably you can see in the background they carry the spanish flag carrying the flag which is the one with the sort of thinner red and yellow stripes now the message.
1:18 pm
here and they want to remain. here heard them thinking. zamboni. was. no good. and we need democrats. to push. more demonstrations on the streets because. the referendum looks pretty. pretty dangerous
1:19 pm
a point. could be.
1:20 pm
thanks very much. in support of the military which is facing criticism over the crisis. of supporters of turned out on the streets of young gone six hundred thousand range of muslims have fled rakhine state for bangladesh over the past two months they accuse the army of rape murder torture and the un has called the violence quote textbook ethnic cleansing florence lou joins us live from younger on the signal they're sending out here with this protest today . this is a protest organized by nationalist military veterans and it's essentially to show support for the military that's been accused of ongoing violence against a minority in northern rakhine state and the people that we've spoken to here out
1:21 pm
here they want to defend the military against the criticism from the international community because they believe the military is merely defending the country's sovereignty and that is. has been pushing. in northern state is nothing more than a legitimate. against a group that the government has designated as a terrorist organization. also heard another narrative that was being pushed by extreme nationalist right wing. the muslim minority in northern rakhine state were trying to implement an islamic form of government in certain parts of the country is what the myanmar military is fighting against but this is something for which there is no proof how much of the protests we're looking at and looking at pictures that we've lifted from facebook there and
1:22 pm
just how much of this protest is in the minds of the people who are demonstrating clearly separate from supporting the military or supporting the civilian government because again over the past two or three days there's been silence from. that's a very good question randi such as. a particularly institution. allowing a democratic transition in two thousand and ten and as you mentioned a civilian government. that the military is still a very very powerful institution in this country now is one. doesn't necessarily. support for the military now in this instance in the handling of the. refugee crisis the military appears to be on the same page as the
1:23 pm
government and the. she has been silent she hasn't spoken up. and she's been criticized not only for that but also for defending the military. support. for not just the military but the government lawrence thanks very much benjamin's walky is an independent southeast asia analyst who joins us on skype from what he in thailand benjamin's a lucky i'm not being sarcastic here what is the point of having that protest when the people started leaving that northern state of recalling at the end of august and there are six hundred thousand. living in a semi permanent state across the border in bangladesh why why does the military and the civilian government feel the need to put together that kind of demonstration. well they're clearly very very sensitive to the criticism they've
1:24 pm
been receiving by by the west and most recently the united states has proposed targeted sanctions against certain members of the military and the country simply doesn't appreciate and as you rightly point out neither the military nor the civilian government appreciates the kind of criticism coming from the west it also needs to be pointed out however that the criticism is in fact limited to the camp of the international community led by for example the united states and europe and does not include china and another whole block of the international community which has had nothing but praise and support for for the response there is a crisis and is there anything in the imagery of this that we're watching known is pretty strong stuff that if you were a range of muslim who's literally fled from what your life was before and you are only existing in living in what you're standing up in and you were living in a refugee camp is there anything that you are seeing in young going today that would make you believe that trickle down message that we've had from the civilian government and the military over the past what three weeks saying look come back it
1:25 pm
will be ok we will address these issues. you know it's fairly clear that those statements were made for the benefit of the western camp in response to its criticism but if you're living in bangladesh at the time at this moment you're seeing not only what has happened to you personally not only the death in the family members the raising of villages on the compensation and sit and sale of your cattle but now you're seeing a rally as far as far away is yang gone that has really been pointed out seems to be not only supported by the military itself but also by the civilian government led by aung san suu kyi the message is clear and it's unequivocal that you are not welcome back in that if you do come back there's really not much to return to there's nothing by way of physical infrastructure for you and certainly there's no old political support for you nationwide no wishing to put words into your mouth benjamin do you get the sense however that the military and also the civilian government beyond making the right noises for those people who want to impose even
1:26 pm
more sanctions on the government there that they cannot or will not do any more than they have done. will it become the status quo there will be no six hundred thousand who live in a semi permanent state across the border in bangladesh. yes it's essentially mission accomplished right the u.n. is call it textbook ethnic cleansing and what you have is a northern rakhine state that has been cleansed ethnically of its reclined or sorry of its range of population and given the message that's being sent today or rather being reinforced today there's not a whole lot more that the civilian government needs to say because because how many more people are there really and more people are still leaving the country then they are coming back and so once that once the region is cleansed of a constituency that has no domestic champion and whose international champions are the west are away and with a tenuous relationship at best with the government there's not much needs to be
1:27 pm
done in yangon to maintain this interim as well he thanks very much. known a few moments we'll have the weather with everton but also still ahead here on the news hour togas president breaks his silence off two months of protests against. lebanon is kind of his trade turn south some farmers are finding luck with a new crop. and sports teams ninth inning stern around sees the dodgers levelling the world series and he's here with that story in about twenty minutes. nice pink skies by the time half. hour as the sun sets in the city of angels. just a week ago typhoon land was hitting japan and now we're looking at another system making its way through it's been downgraded to a tropical storm but in this case we are still looking at some damaging winds hundred forty kilometers per hour on those gusts they will move through very

quickly thirty seven kilometers per hour pushing further northeast was very close to tokyo within the next two or three hours or so but really i think a greater significance will be the amount of rainfall that we have coming for ahead of the storm we've already seen sixty five millimeters of rain coming in to tokyo and further south some massive rainfall totals two hundred sixty four millimeters of rain there in. just in the south this location in the hof a meter of rain has fallen in the space of just one day the wetter weather the windy weather is now making its way further northeast which is a said within the next two or three hours tokyo will see the center of the storm passing a very close by flooding rains mudslides certainly a possibility it will sweep its way through as we go on through monday and by this time tomorrow we're looking at the system making its way away from hokkaido it will be gone by the time we come to choose day but floods will continue. the way
