11:01 am
his country. hello again i'm a fiend and if you're without is there a life from also coming up. russia is wasting our time a second veto in today's russia blocks a un resolution to extend the investigation into chemical attacks in syria. pressure builds on robert mugabe to quit to zimbabwe's leaders ruling party supporters and war veterans gather to march in support of the army. on hold as donald trump delays a new policy that had allowed for the import of african elderly announce his resignation in the saudi capital he landed in the french capital early on saturday morning he resigned in riyadh on november the fourth saying he feared for his life and blaming iran to say contention in the region. two week stay in the saudi
11:02 am
kingdom had prompted suggestions that he was under house arrest lebanon's president has said he won't accept mr hariri as resignation until he returns to beirut or i just talked to our correspondent zain holder who's in the lebanese capital beirut and so sad hariri has arrived in paris accompanied by his wife we understand. yes out of how do you see arriving at his residence in the french capital with his wife but not with his children two of his children who were with him in riyadh they did not accompany him to paris now what we understand is that they stayed behind because they have exams there at school and they attend school in riyadh but this is not going to put to rest really a lot of speculation that the saddle heavy and his family were in one way or another held against their will of course the saudi arabian authorities deny that saddam had easy in a number of tweets saying that this is not true i am a free man but very few people in lebanon believe that is the case and they believe
11:03 am
the fact that his children were left behind in one way or another side of how t.v. is still a political hostage of saudi arabia but they have arrived in in paris really putting an end to a diplomatic turmoil over his fate but this in the way really ends the political crisis like you mentioned he announced his resignation two weeks ago from the saudi capital really a shock resignation that is cause a lot of instability in lebanon and in his latest tweet saddle heidi saying and i'm quoting to say that i was held up in saudi arabia that is not true it is a lie but that tweet was directed to the german foreign minister who himself suggested that how did it was being held against his will a suggestion really that damaged relations between saudi arabia and germany saudi arabia are we calling it some basket or from berlin so realistically they did send out what can result from saad hariri is meeting with president mccall in paris. well really very few people know the deal behind this
11:04 am
deal or a safe facing deal that allowed heavy in one way or another to leave saudi arabia that is the feeling in lebanon the lebanese foreign minister saying we want hatty to return to lebanon without any conditions without any restriction so the feeling here among the authorities that in one way or another there are conditions that. perhaps to this deal they're not even sure if and when he is going to return now there are reports that he's going to tour the arab capitals before coming to beirut and if and when he does arrive in beirut if he resigns there will be a political vacuum and a very hard to replace him you're going to need a sunni leader who can actually replace him this post is reserved for sunday muslims in lebanon's power sharing deal and if he decides to stay in office and take a more hardline approach against hezbollah which is what saudi arabia wants then you know the crisis will just continue so the crisis is far from over the instability caused by the by the latest shock resignation really people are worried
11:05 am
that there could be security incidents or saudi arabia steps up measures like imposing economic sanctions on lebanon so people are quite worried but definitely the fact the title how did he is out of saudi arabia now resolves some reduces some tensions all right for now and i thank you. now a u.n. team investigating the use of chemical weapons in syria is to be disbanded after russia vetoed a resolution which would have extended its mission is our diplomatic editor james spays reporting from the u.n. in new york. bieber of the draft resolution containing document slash two thousand and seventeen slash nine seven zero please raise the hand those against. it seems this was the moment that investigations into who carried out chemical attacks in syria ended an eleventh russian veto on the side of the assad government leading to this angry rebuke from the u.s.

ambassador in a world in which the council's time and attention could be productively devoted to one hundred different things russia is wasting our time conflicts are raging outlaw states are acquiring nuclear weapons the human dignity of millions is violated every day brutal regimes are using chemical weapons on their own people this was russia's reply. new warbird linnaeus a medal an extension of the gyms mandate for us is possible only a fundamental flaws in its work are rectified this was probably the last chance to save the international investigations tasked with working out who was responsible for chemical attacks in syria and but it follows two rival resolutions both voted on on thursday both of which failed to pass. their green frantic negotiations ever since to save the syrian investigation known as the joint investigation mechanism
11:07 am
or in un speak the gym about the work of the gym be safe absolutely to be frank i don't think so. but that much so then the gym is dead. i think it was that yesterday all the u.n. officials including the secretary general have been following the negotiations closely the secretary general kimmitt jim be saved. trying to solve the problem. they failed and although some are calling for further negotiations many diplomats believe that the investigation mechanism created by the security council has now effectively come to an end there are implications for the wider fight against weapons of mass destruction and possible repercussions for the political talks on syria due to start in geneva in just over a week james pays al-jazeera at the united nations. there's

11:13 am
decisiveness governance governments cities states private sector to move ahead so progress but is it enough for those most immediately threatened by climate change not enough is being done it's certainly not enough for the survival of the pacific and there needs to be increased ambition there needs to be a greater responsibility taken by developed countries they need to keep fossil fuels in the ground and they need to move towards a safe and just transition to renewable energy. keeping fossil fuels in the ground was always on the agenda in and outside the conference holes german coal phaseout from angela merkel but the u.k. and canada launched an alliance of twenty nations to wind down coal use meanwhile a delegation sent by the trumpet ministration to promote cult got a predictable welcome. as a coalition of us states and cities stepped into the void to say we're still in the paris agreement. it doesn't matter how much. we think it really fingers i

from a fresh coastal breeze. to watching the sunset on the australian outback. hello there we've got more severe weather around in the southern parts of europe we had flooding in greece a few days ago but you can see now with what this little circulation here this is giving us some very strong winds and some pretty heavy rain as well the system it's likely to stick around during the day today and plenty of heavy rain will say across parts of greece as well it was already hit by the flooding now the system eventually as we head through into sunday will start to swing away down towards the southeast but it will ease a little bit as it does say so force in the western parts of turkey probably not the excessive amounts of rain that we're expecting over parts of greece behind it that something of a break but then on sunday we're going to see more in the way of wintry weather across the outs and it's still going to be bitterly cold in the northern parts of europe you can see the winds there blowing down from the north so eight degrees is a maximum in london and only around six in berlin now for the other side of the
11:16 am
mediterranean here there's a fair amount of cloud with us at the moment but not a great deal in the way of wet weather one or two showers allowed to be grazing the coast of the northern coast of libya there but elsewhere it doesn't like it should be falling and dry and the temperatures really behaving quite nicely at the moment they're getting to around twenty two degrees i mean further towards the south there you see the collection of thunderstorms we've got with us across the central belt of africa as well drifting it's why. towards the west of a camera and it does it pretty well for sunday. the weather sponsored by cats on race. news has never been more available it's a constant barrage of it every day but the message is a simplistic you have the brain a good logical rational person crazy monsters and misinformation is rife dismissal and does not go over well documented accusations and evidence is part of genocide the listening post provides

11:19 am
their final destination. for. i want to be educated so i was three until it gets help or advice then i'll be able to go further this further means going beyond sudan's borders with help from smugglers but getting out is often much harder than getting into sudan because of a deal known as the khartoum process the sudanese government along with other african countries dealing with the migrant crisis struck a deal with a rypien union to keep them out as a result security in africa has been tightened sudan has deployed its paramilitary troops to curb the flow of migrants along its northern and western borders but because these forces are the same ones that were used to fight for both in darfur and other conflict areas in the country using them to stop human smugglers and traffickers comes with a lot of controversy the rabid support forces as the paramilitary group is called was officially formed four years ago created from sudan's national intelligence forces in there for the general weed as they were known by rebel forces were
11:20 am
accused of brutality and violating human rights for their role in the darfur conflict human rights groups accuse the group of work crimes but the head of the forces say they fight crimes not commit them but. we combat all kinds of crimes we have special forces just like any other force in the country which is easiest method to fight crimes and the border with libya is open and there are problems there so often forces patrol there the ease being criticized by rights groups for supporting sudan in anti migration efforts and for providing two hundred fifty million dollars which critics say helps force migrants into detention centers some analysts say the government using the rapid support forces for the mission was deliberate. the government wants to send an international basij these forces joined just fighting rebellions because they fought off rebels the government wants to. give the group a national role to show you they serve in the interest of the whole country they
11:21 am
were created as a fighting force forces that may be too tough to face when migrants such as you know who dream of getting out of africa any way they can people morgan al-jazeera northern sudan. now to cambodian janice have been charged with espionage in the latest government crackdown prime minister hun sen and his allies in the judiciary have been cracking down on critics the main opposition party was dissolved this week the teacher and this she worked for us funded radio free asia and we queues of supplying information to foreign state and is one of the world's longest serving leaders he's been prime minister since one thousand nine hundred eighty five. president trump has postponed his controversial decision to allow hunters to import elephant parts from zimbabweans i'm via he's tweeted he was putting the big came tracy decision on hold until such time as he could review all conservation facts he says the issue has been under study for years and he would update the situation
11:22 am
soon day morse's is the president of founder of the elephant project. the reality is that the amount of revenue that is generated from these homes is miniscule to the amount of money that these countries could generate by adopting what we call a humane economy where and live elephant is a greater economic value to the country going to dead one i mean it's been proven time and time again that a live elephant is seventy six times more beneficial economically to a country than a dead elephant so what's happening is this is just an opportunity for these very wealthy hunters that supported the trump trump presidency to basically get a payback because there's no benefit to the elephants and there's no benefit to the people in those communities and it's one of those just needs to be overturned really does two thousand and fifteen was a first first year the number of elephants killed. there were higher than the number of elephants that were born and so with that disparity had. it continues to happen there is a rabbit reduction in the number of elephants that are still living and what's
11:23 am
happening what a lot of people don't think about is that in these hunts if they go after the ball elephants and the bull elephants typically have more ivory that's a greater impact to elephant herds than anything else you could have you know three thousand female elephants but if you destroyed and killed all the elements they can't procreate which is why you're seeing a drastic decline in the number of elephants that are being born. staying in the u.s. now nevin protests against the democratic senator he's been accused of sexual harassment i. people gathered in the minnesota state capitol building after al franken was accused of forcibly kissing and grouping a woman in two thousand and six last traveling with a comedy tour he apologized telling the woman i'm ashamed to my actions ruined that experience for you protest to say the same and doesn't go far enough he's the latest in a series of high profile men to be accused of sexual assault. and president trump has weighed in criticizing the senator but as patty culhane reports from washington
11:24 am
he's being accused of hypocrisy. this picture is everywhere else franken at the time a comedian groping a woman who is asleep leeann tweeden says franken also kissed her without her consent while they were both on a tour entertaining troops we know he released a statement saying he made a huge mistake with the picture writing to tell her he had no excuse which she says she accepts people make mistakes i mean i'm not i'm not calling for him to step down franken has asked for the senate to launch an ethics investigation into his conduct the man who wants to be the next u.s. senator from alabama is taking a much different approach to his allegations seven women have said he either attacked or approached them for sex when they were teenagers now an eighth woman says more a former judge aggressively grabbed her behind while she was leaving his office that day down there he's gone he's pro-life and now people hot they're saying oh
11:25 am
it's just a grout i was barred from the start and he was a station of power and i think they he wanted to take my. parable the more campus pushing back denying the allegations he's refusing to get out of the race instead of putting women supporters on camera this is a he's saying and he said situation. some of which are forty years old most republicans say they believe his accusers with one notable exception the phrase or more. ranking. president donald trump hasn't spoken out about more a republican but he lashed out at senator franken on twitter writing the al frankenstein picture is really bad speaks a thousand words where do his hands go in pictures two three four five and six while she sleeps his words about a picture of course brings to mind
11:26 am
a videotape or star that let you do it you can do anything whatever you want grab. trump caught on tape bragging about lewd behavior and that was after more than a dozen women accused him of sexual assault or harassment the stories are total fiction trump denied the allegations and made it to the white house in reaction in the largest protests in u.s. history millions of women marched in the streets they demanded respect that day a call that has only grown since the day he took office to call haint al-jazeera washington. navy a setting for a missing submarine with the full sailors onboard the san juan listen off in contact with officials on wednesday it was heading from a naval base south of argentina tamal del plata about four hundred kilometers south of what us ira is
11:27 am
a navy spokesman says it's too early to declare the vessel lost the film america has escaped house arrest in venezuela and fled to spain antonio ledesma who was met by family in madrid is a famous opponent of president nicolas and a daughter the sixty two year old had been detained since wednesday fifteen on charges of supporting an attempted coup. a police officer of her ration in the haitian capital has killed at least seven people. residents say the number is higher and some have accused the police of carrying out executions the haiti is in the middle of reestablishing it sound forces after the withdrawal of u.n. peacekeepers to raise a boat reports are from the capital port au prince. it's been four days since the police entered this school in port-au prince. is still recovering from the shock trying to understand why her nephew was killed by the police. i am asking myself why they kill him when they know he was not one of the bad men he was
11:28 am
someone who went to church studied and had principles. the school is located in the grand dragon area in port au prince as witnesses say there were no armed men inside the school during the raid that ended with professors and students killed some insist that some of the victims were executed two police officers had been killed earlier that day we're told of the haitian national police was carrying anti gang operation in a neighborhood not far away from here that operation ended in this school where the police had me at least seven civilians were killed you can see some of the bullet holes on that wall these are some of the leftovers of what happened here. u.n. troops officially withdraw from haiti one month ago leaving the haitian national police in charge of security here. at the grand ready neighborhood fighting between gangs and the police is frequent but. this time it was different her son
11:29 am
was also killed at the school although this. was my only son i want to kill myself my son is not part of a gang president sent to the police to kill our children people in the area insist that more people died in the raid than the your thoughts are admitting to myself when we visited the center clare morgue where eight bodies were brought in after the incident not seven which is the official number. but when you i'm sure there are more people dead than what we have here maybe the police removed some bodies because we had five or six people coming here to ask if we had their relatives. yeah but while human rights groups say the situation can easily get out of control especially now that the government is reinstating the haitian army almost will you clear the whole titian's and authorities are not innocent on what happened because they too play their part in the violence impurity is the key to the problem because
11:30 am
the justice system does not exist he has no multiple international missions and they've not been able to change anything. for thirteen years u.n. troops have been in charge of security in haiti but with them gone the challenge will now be how to prevent situations like this one happening again. i'll just go to prince. again there's a lot more information on the al-jazeera web site al jazeera dot com. these are the top stories here at al-jazeera lebanon's prime minister saad hariri has arrived in paris with his wife two weeks after unexpectedly announcing his resignation in the saudi arabian capital his prolonged stay in the kingdom prompted
11:31 am
suggestions he was under house arrest saying the house holder has more from beirut . what we understand is that they were not accompanied by their children two of his children stayed behind in riyadh what we understand the reason behind that is that they have school examinations now that is going to raise a lot of questions because some in lebanon will definitely say that one way or another saddle how do you remain some sort of a political hostage and saudi arabia has recalled its ambassador to berlin in protest over comments made by the german foreign minister said while gabriel suggested saad hariri had been held against his will in riyadh it also called for lebanon's neighbors including saudi arabia to let the country decide its own fate saudi state media say the statements were are fortunate and unjustified mr hariri himself tweeted a few hours ago saying gabriel's comments were a lie. a u.n. team investigating the use of chemical weapons in syria is to be disbanded after
