eighteen local time. it was very strange sadly the glasses dropped off the table the fan was shaking we were so afraid we had to run out of the house because our house was old. the u.s. geological. survey immediately issued an orange alert. saying deaths and damage should be expected then came the first reports of fatalities on the iran side of the border in the town of cussler shooting people use their phones in a makeshift assessment of the cost of this quake early reports suggested eight villages had been damaged and electricity cuts as night wore on it grew by daybreak any estimation seventy thousand people were displaced iran is one of the most seismically active countries in the world several major fault lines cross the country and in two thousand and three a six point six magnitude earthquake flattened the historic city of bam twenty six
thousand people died as. well earthquakes may be frequent here the people and not immune from panic in iraq shops and moves evacuated across kurdish territory in iran people were too scared to reenter the harms as aftershocks pipit both sides of the border they slipped on the street shallop bellus zero zero zero as a bulk of the affairs into iraq he says the west of iran has been severely affected and. yet the places that have been damaged the most are the cities of commerce and the damage is very clear and the efforts of the government are noticeable especially for medical help search and rescue and finding housing for the displaced according to an official the number of people displaced is up to seventy thousand so four is especially bad in the city of comedy the government is supplying tents to help these people there is
a government ministry to help deal with the disaster and they have people in all of these towns they are also helping in some of the hard to reach areas including seven villages where people are still under the rubble. well decide now where lebanon's prime minister saad hariri has spoken publicly for the first time since his shock resignation eight days ago he says that he's free in riyadh rejected suggestions that he's being held there against his will hariri also pledged to return to his country very soon zana father reports are from beirut. this is the first time saud how did he makes public remarks since his resignation announcement more than a week ago from the saudi capital riyadh he sought to dispel reports that he had been detained the well being of lebanon's prime minister and his freedom of movement have been open to question in a live interview he denied he was forced to resign and said he is a free man and. i submitted my resignation i know it's not a normal process for
a prime minister but i had to take some security measures to return back safe and sound the circumstances behind his decision to step down united a deeply divided country earlier people used. to show solidarity with saddle had some lebanese may now be convinced that he is not under house arrest others however haven't changed their minds it clearly was a comfortable situation physically look. what he was saying was very. contradictory to many people in lebanon saying that he's free when i look but if and when it does return it doesn't guarantee that lebanon's latest political crisis will be resolved if i withdraw my resignation as prime minister of lebanon we must respect the distancing of lebanon from the regional conflicts we should pull out from the interventions in the region with a few years ago lebanon officially adopted a policy of staying out of regional conflicts particularly from the war in syria
hezbollah has been accused of ignoring that policy by sending troops to fight alongside the syrian government the iranian allied group has long resisted demands to withdraw its forces and it is unlikely to heed that demand now. also singled out yemen accusing hezbollah of interventions that puts lebanon at risk heidi said he resigned to save lebanon but the political vacuum his resignation created has only destabilized the country. he is the top certainly politician in lebanon replacing him will not be easy democracy here is about consensus and a candidate has to be accepted by all rival camps for stability to prevail appearance said comments did little to ease the tensions instead he looked more like a pawn in the regional power struggle between iran and saudi arabia said of. beirut is a policy analyst at the arab center washington d.c.
he says that the interview raises more questions than answers let's just focus on the political messages he said obviously he thought down as a complete shift in his rhetoric goldberg to his resignation a week ago and he was very bellicose against iran and others thought he was very close to your t.v. he basically said the reason of the shift will sell the policy was yemen measure the other issues you mentioned before so i think a lot of the still believe what happened in the last week while his own political movement is saying what say why there's a lot of us and american and u.s. and french and and other than the rest are also worried about his movement so we don't hear the whole story and we have yet to see what will happen in the next days and weeks saudi arabia has asked for knowledge and meeting with the arab league to discuss allegations of military aggression by iran to iran denies supplying
a missile fired from yemen deep into saudi arabia we could go wrong also says it has nothing to do with an oil pipeline fire in bahrain saudi arabia has described the fire sabotage with bahrain's foreign minister blaming iran the arab league meeting. in cairo next sunday. now to the philippines where undeterred protesters have been clashing with police outside the asean summit meeting in manila. that follows earlier demonstrations outside the u.s. embassy in the head of trump's arrival on sunday while protesters have accused him of stoking tensions in the region following the spencers robber bride our correspondent in manila and of course the protests have been well you might say quite loud and noisy and certainly the security services have managed to protect the delegates away from what can be seen and heard a cross part of the capital. that's why this party.
is in virtual state of lockdown at the moment with thousands of security personnel deployed there protesters we see them held back a few kilometers away their water cannon was being used before to try to disperse them it seems to be largely quiet now although it is continuing this was a protest that was timed to coincide with the start of this as and summit it was organized by a number of left wing groups here who say that it is aimed against imperialism now the philippines is largely friendly towards the united states but there are groups here who regard the u.s. as being a colonial power who would be out in any case although some of them it has to be said are particularly incensed by what they see as trumps failure to stand up for human rights now trump is here he is held and at the moment a longer awaited bilateral session with his philippines counterpart rodrigue go to
target and he is not expected to bring up any issues relating to this very controversial crackdown by the philippines president on drug trafficking here which we have seen has resulted in thousands of lives being lost in the past a year or so now that has. incensed people to turn himself in said he would not like to hear any mention by trump human rights issues in his country for his part to turkey has toned down some of his anti american rhetoric ahead of this session you'll remember of course that at one point he was calling for u.s. troops to leave philippine soil well since the insurgency problems we've been seeing in the past few months in morocco in southern mindanao when the u.s. military basically came to the aid of the philippines military with special forces and also specialized satellite surveillance he does seem to have toned down some of that anti american rhetoric so it's going to be very interesting to see just how
they get on when they emerge from this joint session apart from that trump has also been meeting with his australian counterpart malcolm turnbull and also shinzo of japan when they apparently spoke about trade issues and also more importantly perhaps north korea's missiles and of course rob it's very important to say that the u.s. and the philippines certainly work together there is a very long historical time between the two countries and of course with those operations in mindanao happening in the last few months there are pending naval exercises of the not. there are indeed i mean this is very much related to the ongoing issue with north korea i think the top of the agenda for trump throughout this eleven day visit throughout the asia pacific region has been ways of containing north korea's nuclear program and you have he has a very receptive audience as he has come out saying how it is alarmed the north
korea over the assassination of kim jong un's brother on malaysian soil so he very much has an audience here and it comes at a very interesting time in the program of. north korea in development of its missiles tomorrow will see sixty days when we have not had a korean missile launch which is led to all sorts of speculation about what might be happening in north korea but as you said there is a naval exercises the u.s. fleet is a staging exercise in the seas between japan and career involving three heavyweight aircraft carriers a polish show of force that we haven't seen for ten years to help them and willing to die robin continue to join you throughout the day thank you. so had him on al-jazeera a crime against humanity that's harmless to international describes the syrian government surrender all staunch campaign targeting civilians. also spain's prime
minister visits barcelona to try to bolster opposition to catalan secession to stay with us here. how the caspian shares appear to finish navid all part of the same system moving east will suggest something is going to happen for the east as well so that's what has happened for councils or take to daytime daylight hours this is monday's bright sunshine of a terror on the caspian but we have in-house the potential for shows in pakistan and afghanistan they will be raining kharaj snow near kabul or at least the high ground surrounding kabul further west it's all gone quite suddenly breeze we just quite warm for a time in beirut twenty seven degrees or that suddenly more or less gets cut off
slowly in the clouds sink south into northern saudi and even kuwait. now we have seen recently a bit of a breeze to the dance through the gulf which is not be particularly dusty it has cold things down a bit to you so kuwait's maximum the doha forecast max is thirteen thirty one in abu dhabi in that northerly breeze just run for a day a dry picture throughout the arabian peninsula which is no big surprise that's where it should be at this time of year the heaviest rains in southern africa have been recently in mozambique in zimbabwe and that's where the concentrator but you have to look down towards cape town this is by no means settled whether that's particularly stormy i think for the next two days. tracing the fall from prosperity to financial ruin this is beside the movement where we humanized that nothing was first wealthy in greece the devastating impact to save the bank means also to save the deposits. and the failure to prevent
disaster banks and political leaders of the people who needed to learn a lesson a goal or from democracy to the markets at this time on al-jazeera. welcome back you're watching all of us there i'm so ho rob a reminder of our top stories rescue teams have been deployed to iraq in iran after seven point three magnitude earthquake struck the border of the two countries the death toll has now reached one hundred sixty four in iran with a talent he's also reported in iraq as many as a thousand people are thought to be injured.

to qatar since the beginning of the gulf crisis saudi arabia the u.a.e. bahrain and egypt have cut diplomatic ties with qatar the king came straight to doha from a trip to the u.a.e. . if you don't will top the agenda of the meeting between the king of morocco and the emir of qatar since the start of the crisis morocco says he won't take any sides asking all the parties to set aside their differences in the spirit of the ordination rest back and run interference it internal affairs now the king of morocco is in the u.a.e. he met with senior officials in the united arab emirates and i think moroccans understand that this is a very delicate mission that america has failed to solve the crisis the kuwaitis are still hoping to bring all the parties to for a compromise while the king of america has strong relations with the families in this part of the world who would like to tap into those relations and ask all the
parties to negotiate a settlement there's also another element which is basically the g.c.c. countries can see the morocco a crucial ally and they have been committing billions of dollars in investments and also aid in morocco something that the moroccans believe could be an asset to have a maraca that could bring all the parties to turn the chapter of this crisis to europe now where spain's prime minister mariano rajoy is in catalonia for the first time since the central government imposed direct rule over the region he traveled to barcelona to campaign ahead of december's regional elections and praised efforts to honor spanish law in what he called difficult times general has more. on the sunny alter morning in barcelona a marching band goes through its routines oblivious to the presence of spain's conservative prime minister you know who tell behind them marianna run home he was paying a quiet visit to supporters of his own party. to those who want catalonia to break

way up people pretty happy with the way the prime minister has put down the secessionist insurrection here and it's also had the added benefit of largely obscuring a raft of corruption allegations against the prime minister and his party in madrid . his visit came the morning after three quarters of a million cattle hands took to the streets in a show of solidarity for eight former ministers jailed on charges of rebellion and sedition to imprison civil society leaders and the government in exile in belgium but this is they've had it but it was protesting over the holding of political prisoners in the country people who just want to vote and decide to imprison. the prime minister has promised december's election will restore the rule of law in catalonia but a great many people here feel the government has simply bent the law for its own purposes jonah hole al jazeera barcelona. did it as women in mexico are finding
