speaking to graham own where there's a research fellow at nanyang technological university in singapore what did he make of the trump suite. he does sound like the great globalist except for many observers in the region he isn't using a globalist he is an isolationist in the least the messaging that he is delivering right now as we speak while he's visiting. the philippines is creating confusion increasing confusion rather than lessening it over the last few months we've been receiving mixed signals from the trunk ministration about the exact specifications of the role of the united states here in this region in economic and security terms i think right now our optimism has and hasn't grown it's lessened there's a signal perhaps even a sign in the cards that i can ask you and has to get on with doing a great number of things on its own. well actually our leaders are already beginning to gather for the our new us and summit in the philippines the group is

2:11 pm
worth noting that this is an area that is just on the outskirts of the deescalation zone as well so it is perfectly ok and legal for syrian government forces and their russian ally for them are the very end and push the rebels back and this is what the contention of the syrian opposition has been that they have been saying that the escalation zones rather have been helping to bring down civilian casualties but they're also an excuse for the assad government and its allies to consolidate their control and push rebels back to words these areas where they would if they fire back they would be in violation of the laws and it is very difficult for the people who've been displaced from place to place from aleppo city from other parts of provinces in these areas which have come under relentless bombardment in the last five years to try and set up shop here is a few of them who told us how it feels and what do they have now as they move from their homes. we don't and the villages and towns in the southern countryside of

2:14 pm
a little bit to warm up usually means increasing humidity and therefore probably right in there it is coming back into honshu and possibly during to see the sun stay. that in the korean peninsula for the most part and in fact you could draw that line through shanghai and back to this western side of china and turkey down to the science coast this is all developing a lot of rain once more probably won't actually affect shanghai's it's inland but it wants to hong kong sits just to the north i think you should be dry twenty eight degrees as a result of this will be rain on the south coast of china there's certainly some evidence it could be briefly heavy as well so the size of that and the most likely place to get caught by heavy rains are the central philippines and those surprise they recent vietnam and so sudden thailand but in the next twenty four hours to shasta south of that much lighter. discover the world of al-jazeera. the best films from across on the network of
2:15 pm
travel for the legacy of i'm allowed to do it but i'm about to be fresh perspectives and new insights. to challenge and change the way we look. at this time on this. tough as it takes a look at the top stories here it out as air assault is a t.v. has shown new pictures of king sound meeting lebanon's prime minister as lebanese leaders continue to demand he returns home saad hariri hasn't been back to beirut

bid we can go live now to our correspondent joe holly's outside the venue where maria row holy is tell us what is he doing in the castle and capital. martin he's here ahead of the elections on december the twenty first that of course he called addressing in the hotel behind me here local members of his popular party here in catalonia including the candidate who will stand for the party in that election he's promised that the elections here in catalonia will in his words restore the rule of law in catalonia he's called for a massive turnout at the polls in the hope presumably that people traditionally against independents here who often don't vote in big numbers will turn out in big numbers now and prevent the pro independence parties from regaining their majority here is not a particularly welcome presence in catalonia of course at least to half the
2:18 pm
population who support independence here you see the something of a hate figure representing the government in madrid the blame for oppressing their people their language their identity their culture and their rights nevertheless here years he's not going to be doing much of a big public walkabout he probably won't go far beyond this hotel but he's here i think to put his stamp on the pre-election period here in catalonia indeed and what are people of catalonia actually going to be voting on specifically come december the twenty first is it a matter of procession and those who are against the session. well i think the debate has shifted certainly in tone. after the events of the last few weeks and the government in madrid mariano rajoy triggering that section of the constitution one five five revoking the government's autonomy here we are sacking the government all together all based on its drive for independence of the
2:19 pm
madrid government insists was illegal means that the word independence or session probably isn't going to feature very highly in this election essentially people in catalonia know that the election has. to pass and be seen as legitimate by madrid if they are to have any hope of turning around after the election and saying right we've played the game within the law you need to restore our autonomy so that issue of independence has taken a back seat what has come to the fore and we saw it with three quarters of a million people on the streets on saturday night is the idea of political prisoners that half of the people of catalonia who support independence now believe they have political prisoners eight former ministers of course in jail in madrid on charges of rebellion and sedition the former government in exile in belgium and that i think is the central issue at least for the pro independent side in this election they want the freedom of those people they want to return to democracy and that very potent cause is something which may well bolster their support ok jonah how live in barcelona thank you. now iran has called bahraini allegations that it
2:20 pm

2:21 pm
hopefully for investigators this would be a way to find out exactly how many people died under eisel rule now this mass grave was found in how we just which is one of the main towns it was in a. a military base which eisel allegedly used as an execution ground according to locals now this isn't the first mass grave that the iraqis have found they certainly won't be the last as they go into the areas that i saw used to control and trying dig and look for information on any potential mass grave sites that there are now i've actually seen one of these mass grave sites a couple of them in fact actually up in this enjoy mountains in the north they are very gruesome places to come visit everything has to be catalogued so bones are being dug out of the ground forensic scientists are looking at and investigators are looking at what they find just to see how many people actually were killed now in this particular grave we're hearing that at least four hundred people had been killed now whilst all of this goes on i still continue to hold very small areas

2:23 pm
stronghold of perhaps one of the last strongholds of i saw fighters and it's a significant move on the part of the iraqis however once i see these defeated in the territories they control the still the ideology that remains. and an iraqi military helicopters crashed during a training exercise killing all seven people on board it happened over iraq's provinces just east of baghdad so far the cools isn't. the u.s. has joined calls for the saudi led coalition to lift its blockade of yemen but it also says it recognizes the coalition's concerns about stopping the movement of arms to his the rebels the blockade is causing a humanitarian crisis with the u.n. saying the closure of yemen's borders is pushing millions of people to the point of starvation. about four hundred refugees refusing to leave a decommissioned prison camp oh man this island had to build makeshift fences out of fabric in order to keep people out proper new guinea has dismantled large parts
