10:03 am
across the border at saudi arabia but this missile appears to have travelled the furthest hundreds of kilometers deep into saudi heartland and only taken down close to king khalid international airport on the outskirts of the capital riyadh. the official saudi news agency is p.r.a. said saudi forces fired a surface to air patriot missile to intercept it witnesses reported hearing a loud explosion and seeing fragments falling near the airport the rebels moved quickly to say they were behind the missile attack telling al-jazeera they had launched a burke and two h. missile a scud type missile with a range of more than eight hundred kilometers. we choose the time and place after collecting information about a target and it was khaled international airport east of riyadh targeted by a long range volcano ballistic missile this is in response to the continued aggression committing daily massacres against the yemeni people. the conflict in
10:04 am
yemen pits the rebels from the north backed by iran and troops loyal to former president ali abdullah saleh against yemeni government forces back in two thousand and fourteen the who sees and their allies took control of the yemeni capital sana'a. but the conflict widened early the following year when a saudi led coalition of arab countries state done with airstrikes to back up humans government in two and a half years the saudi led coalition has launched thousands of a strikes the same a strikes that have been repeatedly criticized by the united nations for disregarding the number of civilians killed and return who sees and their allies have fired dozens of missiles into saudi territory last week who's the spokesman told al-jazeera that who's the fighters would target any country that attacks them. one man out the. others that target yemen as far as we are concerned are fair military
10:05 am
target from ballistic missiles any country that hits yemen militarily will be targeted. yemen was already the poorest country in the region before the war nearly two and a half years of fighting has left it on the brink of collapse a crippled infrastructure abject poverty seven million people close to starvation and since april the world's worst outbreak of cholera the u.n. says around ten thousand people have been killed and at least forty thousand wounded mostly from saudi laid is strikes this latest missile attack deep into saudi territory will likely escalate this long running and conflict medium hond out to zero has been a serious side car bomb attack at the headquarters security headquarters in yemen's port city of aden several people are reported to have been killed it happened in the north nascar neighborhood no one's yet claimed responsibility for the attack
10:06 am
iran has accused saudi arabia the u.s. and israel of trying to stoke tension in the region it follows the sudden resignation of lebanon's prime minister in the saudi capital riyadh on saturday in a televised statement on saudi state television saad hariri accused iran and the lebanese armed group hezbollah of selling strife in the arab world he also said that he feared an assassination attempt against him iran accused of quote playing a game designed by those who want it all for the region let's go live now to beirut then a hoarder is there extraordinary developments there what happens now. well like you mentioned extraordinary developments there is a political vacuum in the country and filling it will not be easy that is why there are very much what others are wondering will are sure to turn them out of tree the page why you know the political instability in the country and there's also concern about the security situation in the country now what happens now the president
10:07 am
first has to formally accept that resignation after he does that then the president has to hold consultations with members of parliament to appoint a new prime minister now lebanon in reality is a parliamentary democracy but really it is a consensual democracy if the different political parties do not agree on what they call a consensus candidate a consensual candidate then there will be no political stability in this country now can the two sides agree they are so deeply divided party to his resignation his statements making it very clear he has no intention to work or to cooperate with hezbollah now if the hezbollah camp decides to appoint its own prime minister then this could hurt you know lead to some sort of a showdown so the situation is quite difficult if there is no consensus among the different marleen which will lead to a prolonged paralysis political paralysis in the country so what's been the reaction from from hizbollah so i know. what we're expecting to hear from the
10:08 am
secretary general later today he's supposed to address the latest developments but yesterday we did hear from an official from that organization a very defiant statement saying that the saudi arabia will not be able to do what israel and the united states was on were able to do over the past few years so hezbollah clearly seeing itself as the target of this resignation now what options are on the table it's very hard to say and it's also very hard to say whether or not the saudis because everybody is seeing this as a saudi the citron that saddam had he did not make this decision by himself but he was in one way or another told to do so this is. what the pro hezbollah camp in lebanon feels so the situation is quite tense hezbollah considers this as a target and we cannot see this as isolated from what is going on in the region there are efforts to curb iranian influence in the region not only in lebanon we have to remember hezbollah of course being an iranian island but iran in syria iran
10:09 am
and iraq so there is this effort to curb iranian influence a saudi led effort with the support of the united states so people here are quite worried that lebanon is and many analysts are saying in the eye of the storm so many thanks david out of there live in beirut u.s. president donald trump has begun his twelve day tour of asia in japan meeting with prime minister shinzo trying call japan a crucial ally but two are expected to hold talks aimed at countering north korea's nuclear threat trumps tour of asia is the longest in the region by a u.s. president in twenty five years that will include south korea china vietnam and the philippines speaking to u.s. troops at your code base trump promise to defend american values we will never yield never waiver and never falter in defense of our people our freedom and our great american flag no dictator no regime and no nation
10:10 am
should underestimate an. american resolve lived out of tokyo scott highlights so what should you world for today this first day of the asian tour school. it in what we just saw that speech front in front of those u.s. service people there at the air base just on the outskirts of tokyo that was what happened right after he touched down president trump and then he flew in a chopper over to a golf club where he met prime minister of japan shinzo ave they had a hamburger lunch and they played a round of golf with a professional japanese golfer that is over that and it just in the last hour or so so he is going to have some time now will be coming into the central tokyo and then later this evening they're going to the leaders are going to meet up again for a private steak dinner in the ginza neighborhood here of tokyo with their spouses this evening so as we can see as you can tell that that today is pretty much
10:11 am
a very social day for the two leaders their relationship has been described as very tight they have kept in very close contact over the several months that president trump has been president has been in the white house that had at least four summits and they talked on the telephone regularly so today which is kind of it seems as though two friends reconnecting spending a lot of social time together but tomorrow is when things will get down to business there are going to be a bilateral meeting and then they'll be press conference after that about what was discussed in the meeting and possibly some announcements of what we expect to be discussed in that meeting. well in that meeting we know that obviously a lot of the discussion will be focused on north korea security is at the foremost for both of these leaders that's one of the reasons they have kept in such close contact because of what's been happening in north korea with the ballistic missile program and the nuclear program they've been in very close contact with that and also their very close military allies i mean japan is the united states' most
10:12 am
important ally in the region nearly forty thousand u.s. troops are here in this country so it's important for both nations that they stay very close in coordination it comes to any defense of issues that's obviously going to be discussed but there's also going to be some discussion on trade fronts they'll be discussed and possibly about. an operation with between the two countries when it comes to development in the energy sector moving forward the two nations working together in developing energy sectors in other countries and third countries so that's something that might be announced after this bilateral meeting on monday and you know i'm sure that they'll be other things discussed that probably hasn't been indicated over the coming days before this twelve day trip but right now today sunday it has been more the two leaders reacquainting themselves with each other and having a bit of a social time but again monday's down to business or here that press conference will be held after the bilateral meeting about two thirty local time on monday
10:13 am
scott many thanks to scott have to live in tokyo. we're going to weather update next here on al-jazeera then hundreds of refugees in a decommissioned prison camp face an uncertain future strain a turns down an offer to resign. drip by drip catalogues efforts to build some of the world's largest reservoirs of flooding in the right direction. welcome back now the weather across europe is shaping up to be quite interesting next twenty four hours. quite under high pressure but we've got an area of low pressure developing in the gulf of genoa i'm that's going to be pushing through up into more northern parts of italy through into the alps so we're going to see some very heavy snowfall some really severe storms moving through this whole area behind
10:14 am
it some cold air pushing down from the northwest so temperatures really struggling for london paris and to double figures that low pressure continue to push little bit further towards the east over following twenty four hours but still a very unsettled spell of weather with heavy rain extending across parts of the balkans too now as we head across the other side of the mediterranean we've got some client pushing across coastal parts of algeria and. the two showers here otherwise weather conditions largely find that there is a chance the old show on the coast of both egypt and eastern parts of libya car they're looking at temperatures very comfortably into the mid twenty's so pleasant conditions into central africa heavy showers for d.r. congo towards good bone so liberal could be quite wet at times further towards the west we've got a scattering of showers and i could see wanted to hear thirty. again
10:15 am
the top stories on al-jazeera this hour there's been a major cabinet shakeup in saudi arabia the same night as several princes were
10:16 am
detained in a new anti corruption crackdown the head of the national guard the economy minister and the head of the navy have been replaced the billionaire investor prince our lead been to allow is among those arrested and other developments in saudi arabia the military has shot down a long range ballistic missile of a riyadh it was fired from yemen towards the saudi capital's airport rebels in yemen say that they're behind the attack that iran has accused saudi arabia the u.s. and israel of trying to fuel tension after the sudden resignation of lebanon's prime minister saad hariri he resigned in the saudi capital on saturday and accused iran of saying strife in the arab world. thirty nine years ago today the u.s. embassy in iran was overrun by student demonstrators who supported an islamic revolution the anniversary has become a day of iranian nationalism this year a bit strained tensions between tehran and washington
10:17 am
a surface to air missile was displayed at the at was displayed at the celebration same that's ravi reports from tehran. every year the iranian government and its supporters celebrate student day named for the demonstrators who overread it took control of the u.s. embassy in one nine hundred seventy nine it happened in the aftermath of the revolution that overthrew the royal family and saw the rise of the islamic republic of iran. with the american rejection of the nuclear deal and aggressive rhetoric from president donald trump the annual event has this year taken on added significance by the means of told us that we've come here to say in a powerful way that america cannot do a damn thing and until the last drop of blood we will defend our country. and america we have no problem with the people of america but we don't welcome the government of america. each year the old embassy grounds become a rallying point with anti-american chances slogans. and the event is an insight
10:18 am
into the ideology the iranian establishment works tirelessly to keep alive the events of that they are as important for iranians today as they were thirty eight years ago not just because they want to defy the united states but because the taking of this embassy a symbol of american military might in the middle east at that time by students fuels a mindset of resistance that is woven into the fabric of iran's national identity. and we can see how the government is planning for the future. this show of modern military strength is all about linking the country's past with its present and a reminder to iran's critics the missile program is here to stay one that was after repeatedly being defeated in iraq and afghanistan by the people of our region and inevitably the us is bearing its more mongering and on the other side of the world when intercontinental missiles are being tested and in southeast asia where nuclear
10:19 am
bombs are being tested and threatening and bluffing trump just tweets. many of the young men and women here on any other day might be found enjoying american food and music in one of the many western style restaurants that are popular in iran and that appreciation of american style culture is something the government worries about. in the days leading up to this event to civilian and military leaders fiery speeches repeating the message so the young people don't forget for iran america is still an oppressive. new guinea's immigration minister told al jazeera that australia must facilitate immediately an offer from new zealand to resettle refugees from its decommissioned prison camp as a tense standoff on an asylum to a six hundred refugees are refusing to leave over safety concerns and thomas reports. the refugees are refusing to leave what was the man i saw and present
10:20 am
about five days without food surviving on. one thing the refugees are putting their hopes on is a deal with new zealand so you resettled them more than four years ago then prime minister john key offered to take one hundred fifty refugees a year off the road but to strive his government has never taken up that. that's new zealanders have a right to live in australia that deal would always be seen as a back door into australia well new zealand's new prime minister was asked on sunday morning whether. you have course do not have the second stances that a stranger is operating under and. but we also cannot ignore the human face of what a strain we're is dealing with as well said the offer is very genuine and absolutely remains on the table the the offerers has been restated we thank you zealand for make that offer we're not we are not taking it up at this time for the reasons i explained earlier malcolm turnbull said he wants to work through
10:21 am
a deal with the united states first to resettle up to twelve hundred fifty and the refugees there only once that process is complete well they can set up office but that deal with the us is moving painfully slowly don't trump eight states and only fifty or so refugees have been resettled in the u.s. more than a year after that deal with first announced meanwhile the suffering on the road goes on australia's government is always say the responsibility for the refugees lies ultimately with happen you did government so i asked her whether she considered making an offer the rect government instead would you consider making this offer directly to pass when you get me leaving australia out of the loop because the offer is still under. consideration by a strain so there is no need to do so but according to happen you gain either ease and need to do so immigration minister on sunday told us in a text message new zealand resettling one hundred fifty refugees would be a great relief to papua new guinea and that it's
10:22 am
a deal australia must facilitates the bottom line is that without. it doesn't look as though those refugees will be getting new zealand. one on our top story this hour the cabinet shake up an anti corruption cracked out in saudi arabia the head of the national guard the economy minister the head of the navy have all been replaced and the billionaire investor prince hourly been among those arrested in the china as a car is assistant professor of gulf politics of castle university he joins me now here in doha what do you make of this. well i think this is from the very beginning was a struggle for power for succession since the very beginning of this crisis i keep saying that this is the very beginning so this is another movement in order to guarantee that it. will be peaceful and nobody is going to challenge that transition in the future internally speaking neither externally the head of the national guard particularly significant removal what are the implications of that
10:23 am
just like i mean this is what the means of this all the different branches of the army will be controlled by the same people. in this ballance between different branches of the family of the it was before so now there is no way that it unsuitable to be accepted by all the branches of the family all the branches of the army all the most important people from this whole establishment all right so this is an attempt at consolidating power by the crown prince mohammed bin sultan what about the anti corruption drives though and the arrest of these prominent businessman and princes i am still confused about that because the commission was created or called me that was created a few hours ago if we were to before the tension so it's quite difficult to understand whether this is related this specifically to corruption or if this is the only group of people that will be detained based on this kind of charges. i'm inclined to think more along the way in which these people could have influence the
10:24 am
business network or diplomatic network in the future i am inclined more to. specific go really to the corruption the working week of course in the middle east begins on sunday what do you make of the timing of this it was done on on saturday night. yeah i mean it's very surprising but here in the region we have to be used to this kind of measures taken overnight that's why i'm saying it's difficult to relate this to corruption since they didn't have enough time to make a prosecution and to make investigations about that if there was something or some information collected previously why did the and with. case by case in different before not doing this overnight all these people together which is rather specious it's the likely to be any pushback on this either internally in saudi arabia or perhaps externally into internationally i don't expect. any any complain about this
10:25 am
so the crown prince basically has a free hand he can he can do what he likes to do he said it's. for when the different steps of the were taken in the last few months that nobody can challenge his so far it being good to talk to you many thanks indeed for being with us. the ousted kaplan leader pushed amount has urged all process session parties to form a coalition for december's election in his home town of jarana pushed him on supporters say that they agree with his decision to stay in belgium while others are not so convinced this is the city celebrates its annual fiesta under simmons reports. tradition is colliding with politics in jarana the city's annual festival has gone ahead despite attempts to call it off during a province is the heartland of procession politics and the home of carlos. despite appearances people say low one here is really happy.
10:26 am
that all my family i don't. know i don't know from got the phone. and they don't understand exactly what is happening out here. right. but i think it's very difficult in the old city many balconies make a political statement the spanish national flag represents the minority city councillors say they're in mourning over the jailing of eight sacked cabinet ministers in the unusual just black drapes laid on the front of city hall and the flags above are at half mast the european union the catalan regional and the jarana city flags the spanish national flag was removed when secession was declared more than a week ago. and the man says she supports pleased being in belgium. even
10:27 am
in the big i mean i fully understand why president puts them on is seeking european protection especially after seeing what has happened to the rest of the government ministers we can't have a situation where we have political prisoners and i think it's ok that he protects himself and he makes our conflict more visible internationally the weeklong festival was supposed to end with a firework display but that's now being canceled organizers who had to consider cutting out other parts of the shadow chose to focus on events aimed at children in catalonia culture tradition and politics have always gone hand in hand the children may be having fun watched by their parents but this year's festival takes place against the backdrop of a long going to increasingly bitter struggle for secession andrew simmons al-jazeera. fires may go reservoirs among the largest in the world being built in

10:30 am
overall something that. we get what we're doing with moving more to the plate more media at the moment rather than the more general part of this but when you know that would have to be what i thought it was the one. that cheapest minute. without using. this is. an abundance of water in the desert is no longer just a pipe dream for carter's residence these installations a built to last a century. or about unmanly out as they are. it is good to have you with us adrian finnegan here in the other top stories. there's been a major cabinet shakeup in saudi arabia the same night as several princes were detained in a new anti corruption crackdown the head of the national guard the economy minister
