4:01 pm
hello and welcome to the al-jazeera news on live from our headquarters in doha with me and as a product coming out for the next sixty minutes more than three hundred eighty people are killed as an earthquake causes destruction across iran and iraq. saudi arabia says it will reopen some of yemen's ports and to allow much needed aid for millions of people facing famine. donald trump made philippine president roh bring over that bit and mandela but there is confusion over whether they talked about human rights abuses and cancer scare we meet a mother who is more afraid of the house system and the addition narrow than her disease. more than three hundred eighty people have died in iran in a magnitude seven point. of quake that struck just over the border in neighboring
4:02 pm
iraq almost a full of people have been injured the u.s. geological survey put the epicenter in the town of halabja in so many a province that's in iraq's kurdish region close to the main border crossing with iraq the quake was felt across iraq from that of a into baghdad and as far west as on province but the most extensive damage was in the town of become on the iranian side the earthquake affected several provinces but the hardest hit. rescue teams have struggled to reach for that is there as the roads have been cut off by landslides triggered by the earthquake and wrong can reports from baghdad. first responders quickly deal with the wounded in western iran a seven point three magnitude earthquake bringing scores of the injured through hospital doors. i fell from the balcony it was so far. pieces of glass fell on me and hurt my hand. you arrivals from remote towns swell the hospital to capacity the
4:03 pm
injured continue in ever increasing number as more people are found in the rubble the death toll rises to the earthquake was centered on the iraq iran border near the iraqi town of halabja striking at nine eighteen p.m. local time 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 iranian side of the border in the town of conservation people use their phones to record the devastation early reports suggest eight villages have been damaged by daybreak an estimated seventy thousand people were displaced the iranian authorities quickly moved in field hospitals and emergency equipment the country has a history of dealing with earthquakes iran is one of the most seismically active countries in the world several major fault lines across the country and in two thousand and three a six point six magnitude earthquake flattened the historic city of bam twenty six
4:04 pm
thousand people died. joining us live from baghdad now among what's the latest you're hearing on both sides of the border. well let me tell you on the iranian side of the border rest. away there any software used to doing this like move ahead of the volume of this we got to have until at least overlooking the operation that they've beaconsfield all spruced heavy equipment now there are a couple of big problems one of them is the fact that the local gas supply plugs has been shut down the safety reason starts narita gets very cold at night so i think it's clearly going to be a problem as it is took a lot of people rely on gas so we have those problems as well in that area also it's just the sheer amount of landslides that is proving very good not just the iranian forces but the people of red crescent to get in to where the people need the help by school so they have the thousand people that have been displaced so
4:05 pm
that's going to be a real this is trying to get to those people trying to break just the trying to figure out the student on the iraqi side what is real concern about that funding the follow ups just met up to where the epicenter was what they took a moment to speculate from the fire so i got the body has been meeting with the baltic committee they've been discussing what to do that very concerned about attempts in the local area on a segment. and if i don't get some sleep but if you say can i tell you something i want to be assured he succeeds he's been speaking to all of the relevant authorities or simply used to i don't like this magnitude going to get back out to stop the mine it's the pm last night it was tremendous amounts of panic people have experience of it but like this and living memory and ron thank you very much for that and ron kahn our correspondent in baghdad when let's get more on this now we're joined by mark allen professor in the department of time for that don university and the united kingdom
4:06 pm
a very good to have you with us on al-jazeera i think just how common are on common quakes a very high magnitude and this area. hello world earthquakes so they smack you shoot it's been estimated at seven point three they're actually very rare in these parts of iran and iraq earthquakes themselves are common but that's a prickly much much smaller than even the largest ones in the zagros mountains over the last forty or fifty years of typically been only of the order of magnitude five or six and so do we know why we would be thinking such a very high magnitude which you yourself say is a rare occurrence at this time. sorry can you repeat the question please do we know you know why we would be thinking a very high of magnitude earthquake seven point three that is rare at this time
4:07 pm
no it it's not clear and certainly we can't predict earthquakes with any kind of useful certainty we can forecast that earthquakes are going to happen again and again in this part of the world because the plates colliding but it is rather of a mystery at the present time why is this earthquake should have been so when usually large for this part of the planet it may be that it has taken place on an unusually large fault running along this arc cross range and at a point where it into sex with another structure that is running north south roughly along the line of the political border between iraq and iran certain maybe that we unfortunately have a particular set of circumstances in the bedrock geology of this part of the region which has led to this unusually large event and what about the circumstances around the geography that is the to rain and why we're seeing so much more damage on the
4:08 pm
iranian side a lot more deaths on the iranian side that in iraq. well it may be simply to do with the physical geography that the iranian landscape is much more mountainous than its counterparts on the iraqi side to the west but remember that that landscape and the location of the political border a lot of it comes down to these geological faults that shape the landscape so repeated earthquakes on these faults of lifted up the mountains in their present configuration and created that mountainous landscape on the iranian side whilst keeping the iraqi territory rather sort of subdued and flatter with consequently fewer casualties when an individual earthquake strikes a mr allen after such a powerful earthquake what can we expect over the next few hours and days how
4:09 pm
likely how common are aftershocks at this time. aftershocks are inevitable bones there are already been some sort of eight to ten sizeable events in the region which can be regarded as aftershocks fortunately each of the the ones recorded so far since the main shock have been much smaller on the mark and shoot of four and five but there is potential that some of the aftershocks could themselves be rather considerable maybe on the order of high fives and sixes given the large size of the original main shock we can't predict exactly when and where they will occur they could occur over the next days and even months in this region we've already seen with the first aftershocks that they're occurring on a sort of broad north south distribution south of the main shock and that's probably indicating sort of further activity on the same fault system again roughly
4:10 pm
along the line of the political boundary between iraq and iran mr allen it's great to get your and fired and to the mark allen joining us live from daryn thank you. let's move on to other news now thought the arabian mission to the u.n. has announced that the saudi led coalition will begin reopening airports and seaports in yemen they have placed a blockade on yemen after what the rebels fired a missile towards riyadh a week ago in djibouti international aid groups are loading much needed aid supplies onto a ship to send to yemen but as our correspondent mohammed though reports they've yet to get clearance to darken the rebel held port of holiday there. u.n. officials say they're in a race against time to deliver a much needed aid to the people of yemen usually that will be taking these supplies with dollars to the ports. on the other and in yemen but because of the broke the
4:11 pm
impost on the country by the saudi led coalition they haven't been able to take anything from djibouti to yemen in the past week and i'm now forced to use a much bigger ship to make the delivery they say they would ideally want to take the supplies which include medicine for the whole of a response as well as therapeutic food formal notice children to the point of the day that but they do not have access to the port yet djibouti has become an important hub for the yemen relief operation in the past few years and also stranded here about sixty members of staff of the united nations and other international organizations well let's get more on this knowledge oin by craig figure who's recently returned from yemen she's joining us live from london very good to have you with us on al-jazeera as we mentioned you have just come back from yemen where were you and what did you see. i was actually traveling all
4:12 pm
over the country so i was in aden i was in providence i was also entires sanaa and the port city of her data which has been blockaded since earlier on the conflict and what you can see now on the ground this was the latest in many trips i've made c.m. and over the course of the of the war now that the situation for severe acute malnutrition of particular amongst children is getting dramatically worse over time although that wasn't actually a shortage of food in the markets both in the north and the south of the country people simply cannot afford to buy food anymore the price of food has escalated hugely and also because of the lack of government salaries which have gone on paid for more than a year now there are just no customers in the market so although the food is able to get through people just cannot afford to feed themselves and their children and so the situation with mounted tertian is definitely getting worse the situation with cholera the rate of cholera cases has actually eased since september although
4:13 pm
of course with this renewed blockade that was imposed last week by the saudi coalition the tightening of this blockade on humanitarian organizations in particular has really worried a lot of aid agencies that that progress that's been made against cholera will actually will actually be retracted what i was just going to yemen is of course in a terrible situation since the war by the saudi led coalition but how much damage how much more damage has the blockade done to the country. i think it's hard to tell immediately certainly speaking to people who work in aden port for example on the commercial side last week they said the port was actually only ever close for one day and that was the day the announcement was made about this tightening of restrictions but crucially the humanitarian aid agencies have been brought. for an entire week now for taking supplies into the country and i
4:14 pm
think that will have a huge impact now because there's twenty million yemenis in the aid of humanitarian aid so just a week of stopping that aid is going to have consequences the seven million people now on the brink of famine you've got nearly half a million children suffering from severe acute malnutrition and what i found from talking to people is they simply will not take family members into hospital if they can't get free medical care which is what the aid agencies can provide because they can't afford to so many more people like saddam i if these restrictions go on much longer obviously the commercial imports are important yemen imports ninety percent of its food even in peace time but without that added humanitarian aid it's going to have a dark consequence on the civilian population in yemen less craig it's very good to get your insights into what's been happening in yemen joining us live from london thank you. and we have plenty more ahead on the news hour including.
4:15 pm
a crime against humanity amnesty international details the syrian government's arendal stop campaign against civilians. hundreds of a story and politicians have been given three weeks to prove they're not jewel citizens we'll tell you why later in the news hour and croatia and switzerland back their places of the world cup but will this really be able to follow joe we'll have the details and sport. thank you. plus president obama trump has been provoking anger in the philippines ways of meeting asian leaders at the summit. but just as at the gathering and the a say the u.s. president's rhetoric is stoking regional tensions trump spoke at length to his host philippine president for the legal affairs there the white house says human rights issues. and with her his war on drugs were discussed but the for the pain
4:16 pm
government says they weren't general allen though ball has moved from manila. when he was sworn into office philippines president will be good to talk to says that could she will be cutting ties with the united states but now more than a year later and as chairman of the association of southeast asian nations critics a deterrent is now singing a different tune. and there's the money into you know. he promised to pursue an independent foreign policy veering away from the u.s. while building closer relations with china and russia those who want supported him now say deter the strong man image isn't quite what it. really shows the kind of relationship there is between him and trump but with the philippines and the united
4:17 pm
states it's a neo colonial relations all of many is for a truly independent foreign policy independent from the dictates of the united states of america it's donald trump's first trip to the philippines since he took office security experts say top of his agenda are the growing tensions in the korean peninsula he'll also be meeting with leaders of as he and member states all our diplomatic ties with north korea but have unanimously condemned pyongyang's nuclear weapons program over the weekend three was aircraft carriers carried out joint exercises off the east coast of south korea worrying many here that the situation shows no sign of the escalating the south china sea dispute is also on the agenda together with the growing influence of i still in the region and the ruhi a crisis in me and mark the thirty and shop are meeting on the sidelines today a lateral discussion that is making many here nervous but trump says the. two countries have
4:18 pm
a great relationship trump wants glossed over deterred to so-called war on drugs which has led to the deaths of more than ten thousand filipinos were and far from the glittering halls of i.c. and protests continue in downtown manila. this band been going on for more than thirty minutes now and it shows no sign of slowing down protesters are chanting the word coup which means poppy. they say philippine state forces together with president. are stooges of the united states. more than two thousand people showed up and there is no shortage of zeal or anger. but the history between the two countries is so intertwined it will take more than a few protests to separate the united states from its former colony. duggan i'm just here in manila for rob mcbride has more now on the confusion around what
4:19 pm
presidents trump and for they discussed. well both sides say this long awaited bilateral meeting was a big success there's a dispute about exactly what transpired during their discussions and whether in fact the subject of human rights was brought up this is been a controversial issue with critics accusing the trumpet ministration of abandoning the traditional role of a u.s. president in bringing up human rights wherever they might be in the world and here in the philippines there is a big concern about the thousands of people who have died in this controversial war on drugs and it was claimed by a white house spokesperson that briefly human rights was brought up by trump now that's been disputed by a spokes person for president deter take who says that yes while the drugs issue was raised a trumpet merely listened largely to the explanation from do tertullian seem to
4:20 pm
agree or show sympathy towards the menace that the administration here is facing with the challenge from drugs but at no point they say did he raise any human rights objections now surrender or starve amnesty international says the syrian government's method used against civilians constitutes crimes against humanity and it's calling for an end to what it calls the dark stain on the world's conscience a new report says government forces surrounded and bombed in densely populated opposition controlled areas thousands of people were given an ultimatum to abandon their homes or die amnesty says farms and food supplies were burned hospitals and clinics destroyed and people were deprived of medical care the report condemns not only the syrian government but also some opposition groups and it says both restricted and blocked humanitarian help and the stays asking for an independent body to investigate and prosecute those responsible well dinosaur man is
4:21 pm
a serious researcher at amnesty international he says data for the new report was collected from more than one hundred and thirty four displaced civilians. and cafe and four which is part of the fourth downs agreement we found that had a shot islamic movement and at the head a sham formerly formerly known as robot and responsible of besieging the predominately shia advantages and the countryside so civilians have described to was what i mean they're going through the same horrific experiences as other besieged areas besieged by the syrian government so these two towns the armed groups have restricted and humanitarian access deprived them from food to water and even a great cultural field to prevent them from accessing the agricultural produce these yes conditions always have just proven to be a temporary ceasefire but what we've seen in these former besieged areas that the government was able to recapture these areas from armed opposition groups by
4:22 pm
besieging them and you know forcing them or compelling them to surrender negotiating an agreement which basically has affected civilian population the most forcing them to do of their homes to other opposition controlled areas such as a government controlled areas now these civilians that are numbered and thousands are living in a dire humanitarian conditions they're living in makeshift camps with no access to services and others i have to pay rent and pay for water and they take tricity the disk additional zones haven't lifted the sieges of the civilian population is to report to see it as to be see it's an end to the countryside supposedly there's a deescalation zone however we've seen a sever violations like attacks on civilians hospitals and other civilian objects so in effect these us could and should zones have been heaven to protect that civilians for that reason we're calling on the government to end these on go for that tax especially their allies russia and iran and to lift the siege is on the
4:23 pm
remaining half a million civilians a solid a their poor. so you want to add a warning you may find some images in his report disturbing so. maybe so hard drew her last breath just over a month after she was born she weighed barely two kilos. malnutrition his killed a dozen other children in the outer suburb of the syrian capital in the last few months doctors say the siege imposed by the syrian government has caused hundreds of children to suffer from moderate to severe malnutrition. this mother pleads to roads be opened and the siege to end she wants aid convoys to bring medicine not just food. similar cries for help are being made in other areas of syria amnesty international says the surrender or starve strategy which is for
4:24 pm
thousands of syrians from their homes is a crime against humanity we're going half a million people continued to be besieged following the displacement of hundreds of thousands in the past year the u.n. to help end the siege for two hundred seventy five thousand people in the rebel held areas of aleppo city seventy five thousand were besieged in homs four thousand people were evacuated from the riaa and at least sixty five thousand were under siege in the four towns of my die as a danika for four. amnesty says the tactic of mass displaced in my view regime using sieges in forced evacuations is not reconciliation for. syrians in besieged gerri is have been forced to leave their ancestral homes after months of hunger and bombardment for years they've been telling the world how they feel when the bad. i left aleppo my town our fathers and grandfathers lived there this year militias came to raise their flags with the russian occupiers this is our country the whole
4:25 pm
world let us down. rights workers say there is ample evidence of restricting access to humanitarian medical aid as well as air and ground assault on hospitals and homes which amounts to war crimes despite repeated calls for action aid workers and many syrians are disappointed that all they have seen is in action and excuses by the international community a treatment they say future generations will not forget. turkish president about your father adeline is on a diplomatic push to solve regional crises he's headed to kuwait on tuesday and qatar on wednesday to discuss the five month long gulf dispute the first visit in the russian city of sochi where the syrian civil war will be discussed with president vladimir putin let's go to our russia correspondent roy chalons there he is joining us live from sochi why are they meeting melroy.
4:26 pm
well these two men talk a lot at the moment this is going to be their fifth meeting this year and the feeling is really this is a relationship that is getting back on track after essentially two years of turmoil that turmoil triggered by the shooting down of a russian warplane over the turkey syria border two years ago but in the past few months they have been working together russia and turkey on a number of issues they've been jointly sponsoring the us on a peace process with iran as well working together on sponsoring the deescalation zones there and then turkey is also in the middle of a purchase of russia's s. four hundred missile system and of course there's trade which is gradually picking up again after russia has been slowly lifting each of the embargo and sanctions put
4:27 pm
on trade between the two countries following the war plane incident two years ago so improving relations really between the two countries but no doubt some on resolve differences as well what complaint can we expect the president at the one to take to president putin. well he doesn't seem a happy man i have to say we get that impression from a press conference he gave earlier in the day i think before he set off for sochi and he was particularly upset i think about this joint statement that was released by donald trump and vladimir putin on saturday which said that there was no military solution for syria now further away and this doesn't make sense if there's no military solution for syria then why did both the u.s. and russia still have military forces there too and is also i think concerned about the situation in syria where turkey has basically been trying to split the
4:28 pm
more hard line elements of the syrian opposition particularly the groups. that are aligned with al qaida and the groups that were formerly called al nasra it's a complicated battle space in libya and there's the turkey backed free syrian army operating there is as well all of these seem to be under bombardment from the syrian government forces so that doesn't please you and he's also i think upset about the perennial problem of the kurds and. there is a turkish cd century going on in the northern african region of syria where the turks are surrounding kurdish y. p. g. forces and russia has a reason we corp a relationship with those y p g forces that is something that is not so you happy with as well so he is going to be talking to putin about all of these issues all right thank you very much for that for now that's roy's challenge joining us with
4:29 pm
all the very latest from those two presidents meeting in sochi thank you and it's time for the weather now and what's going on across africa everton well if we've got the usual tropical showers across central parts but we see some really heavy rain topping a tide in the. continent this just starts in the north where we see this area of low pressure swirling away just around the mediterranean banging away with some big and fundraise showers rather heavy rain to affect in the far north east of algeria into tunisia and some of those showers just lapping along the coastal shores of libya there will be more of the same as we go on through where to stay you can see that circulation very much in evidence there then further south we have got the usual showers as i said across tropical parts just making their way further south as they should do at this time of the year you can see the the thunderheads making their way from the ethiopian highlands pushing across central areas a few showers there into south sudan into kenya uganda seeing
4:30 pm
a few showers get on camera in southern parts of west africa we could see some wet weather just coming in here as we go on through the next few days but they are tending to edge they way further south and further south we've seen some really lively showers just coming out of the tropics you can see this area cloud rolling right down across in bob way through. into central parts of mozambique another area cloud to just around the eastern and southern kapor south africa if anything really peping up here as we go through the next couple of days and a cold one to come this week for south africa is. thank you very much evidence from the head the news hour the north koreans are trying to get poss one of the world's most heavily guarded borders plus. i'm for an entrepreneur in the us where scientists say they can feed all of europe on just one cow and they're close to bringing this love burger to markets thanks to the primary you

4:34 pm
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 have 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. some lebanese may now be convinced that he is not under house arrest others however haven't changed their minds it clearly wasn't comfortable situation here physically look. what he was saying was very. contradictory to many people in lebanon saying that he's free when i look but if
4:35 pm
and when how 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 destabilize the country heidi. he is the top so the politician in lebanon replacing
4:36 pm
him will not be easy democracy here is about consensus and he can't that it has to be accepted by all rival camps for stability to prevail appearance and comments did little to ease the tensions instead he looked more like a pawn in the regional power struggle between iran and saudi arabia so out of. beirut. south korea's military says north korean troops have shopping and hit a fellow soldier as they try to defect to the cell that happened near the border village of pine one jom the soldiers being taken to hospital kathy novak has more from seoul. according to the south korean choying chiefs of staff a north korean soldier ran across the border just before four in the afternoon seoul time they say north korean soldiers a shop the man in the arm as he crossed the joint security area within the d.m.z. running towards the south korean building known as the freedom house they added that south korean soldiers did not fire any shots because those fired by the north
