meanwhile saudi arabia's attorney general says it's now question two hundred people as part of what it's calling an anti corruption crackdown he says the investigation has uncovered around one hundred billion dollars worth of forward we're all family members officials and prominent business men are among those being held in a luxury hotel in the capital riyadh critics say crown prince mohammed bin solomon is leading the crackdown and to consolidate his power. well let's get the very latest from the political situation in lebanon from his in the hall there who is currently in beirut. the promises own party has said that they don't recognize his resignation so is he still prime minister recently. well according to the president of the country and the speaker of parliament yes he is still the prime minister because according to them he cannot just resign on television he needs to submit his resignation in person to the president he needs
to explain to the president the circumstances behind his decision but the biggest question is where is the prime minister that a very strong statement coming from his political party saying how d.d. needs to return to lebanon immediately they stopped short of saying that he is being detained or that they believe he's under house arrest but we did call his office to try to get further clarification what they told us was we have no information about his whereabouts so the his own party expressing concern sources close to the president as well as the speaker of parliament telling us that the president himself believes that saddam had it is under house arrest so a lot of concern about the fate of saddam had many and lebanon believe in one way or another he was forced to resign by the saudi authorities and as i said saudi arabia now calling on its citizens to leave lebanon whether they live there or visiting immediately this really feels like the situation is escalating rather than calming down. definitely escalating and you know statements like that is just going
to cause even more tension and uncertainty in this country also there has been a statement from the saudi official in charge of gulf affairs what he is saying is that there will be further measures what he called escalate tory measures that we will take to achieve our aims now saudi arabia's not saying what measures those will be but it has issued threats telling lebanese politicians you need to curb hezbollah has influence in lebanon you need to move away from the party and one way or the other saying you have to choose between hezbollah or us so people are worried what can saudi arabia do put financial pressure economic pressure on this country people are ruling out military action but financial pressure economic pressure that will cause a lot of suffering in this country and i know qana me already struggling so a lot of uncertainty saudi arabia really bent on finishing off hezbollah and they're able to really is to curb iranian influence in the region and what they've decided to do is to start here in lebanon by targeting its proxy hezbollah good to
get your thoughts as i know how that would be very uncomfortable situation. the u.n. and more than twenty eight agencies are warning that the saudi led coalition is tightening of the blockade on yemen could bring millions of people closer to starvation they're calling for the opening of all and seaports closed after saturday's attempted missile attack on syria and organizations including oxfam save the children and islamic relief say that more than two thirds of yemen's twenty eight million people are reliant on imported supplies more than twenty million people need humanitarian assistance including seven million facing famine like conditions food supplies are expected to run out in six weeks and vaccines in just a month and the international committee of the red cross says it can't bring in chlorine tablets to prevent malaria cholera the number infected by the outbreak of yemen's is expected to reach one million by the end of the year humanitarian groups
say mass starvation is possibly just weeks away. basically ninety percent of the young men spewed is in. the breakdown on the food pipeline like we've now seeing it's not going to take money weeks before we can watch more people will face the ration and we're struggling to move around it takes from one town to another we have to almost go through one hundred checkpoints we're asking for the airport blockade to be opened to allow lifesaving medicine and food to get into the country this is a manmade disaster and there is no humanitarian solution to this we're asking for all parties to come together to find a solution desperately which is desperately needed for the people of yemen. and seaport city abandoned while the crisis gets worse and citizens express outrage mama judging reports. at some international airport an ominous silence terminals are as him to you of people as runways are devoid of planes clear signs
that the crisis in yemen. it is only growing more dire not only sunnah international airport was completely brought to a halt by the warring coalition stateside that included preventing the un end of planes humanitarian aid the red cross and doctors without borders is a bit of luck but airport officials aren't just angry with the parties to the conflict a compass that and m m m a to head to the united nations could have taken a brave and clear decisions to condemn the aggression the un could have compelled the belligerent states to allow at least humanitarian aid to arrive and to allow access to the injured casualties and humanitarian cases for its part the u.n. has warned that in yemen which is in the grips of a cholera epidemic that has seen more than nine hundred thousand suspected cases since april is also facing the world's worst famine crisis. one that could kill millions of people unless the saudi led military coalition ends its blockade and
allows aid to flow into the country saudi arabia imposed a land and sea blockade in yemen after a ballistic missile was fired on saturday towards its capital riyadh since then it has only become more difficult for citizens to get their hands on vital commodities with prices of petrol and cooking oil rising drastically in the port city of her data humanitarian access was already difficult for aid agencies now it's only got worse than this and so far as closing down the ports and borders these are war crimes in the first degree at the u.n. office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs in sanaa officials are extremely concerned of what will happen if they can't continue to bring food into the country you know that yemen is the largest food insecurity could isis all over the world every month we feed seven million people these are people who depend completely on relief aid for those survivors and we import these commodities the
food to help these people which is why the longer yemen's air. and seaports sit empty the longer the suffering will continue. the global whistleblower group of global leaks has released for the peers to be a plan by the united arab emirates to destroy cattles economy and eventually steal the twenty twenty two world cup the plan was found in the email account of the u.a.e. ambassador to the united states yousif al tiber global leaks handed over the files to the online news outlet the intercept orion graham is the washington d.c. bureau chief of the intercept. the plan is a if fairly simple one in the end it's to take all of the existing bonds that u.a.e. and affiliated parties already own and put them in a kind of off shore confidential vehicle and then go about purchasing additional qatari debt. and then by credit default swaps against that debt so that when the
debt goes down in value the credit default swaps rise it's like buying an insurance they would then take these these bonds according to the plan and swap them back and forth among parties who from the outside look like they're independent but are actually the same people as like me and you trading a bond back and forth and that creates an illusion of volatility and with people aware that there is this political crisis going on then the plan as they see this enhanced volatility and traders start to panic and say oh my god something must be going on here we need to sell our own our own could tare debt which drives the price down further that that dries you know that increases the price of the c.d.'s which then puts pressure on the currency the qatari currency which requires carter then to bring in dollars to prop up its currency and all of this
creates a sense of crisis which then you would use to say well that the country is in crisis you know it ought to at least be sharing the world cup with the rest of the g.c.c. countries the syrian army says it's now in control of the eastern city of. fighters withdrew though the city was one of the last remaining pockets territory in syria held by the armed group iraqi fighters allied with the syrian government have been pushing into alba kemal from both sides of the border the syrian minute she video appears to show iraqi funniest flying yellow shia militia flags near the city on wednesday still has been losing ground rapidly since its self declared capital rocka was captured in october by syrian democratic forces. the head of the un's a humanitarian task force for syria is warning hundreds of thousands of people need and ask us are facing a complete catastrophe young egeland says it's difficult for international aid to
