5:03 am
a party once when i got to be the presidential candidate. must be held. but some people don't believe is the right man for the job he was a faithful ally of mugabe for decades we are not impressed by the one who replaced him they were together. easy street and so we are not so sure whether we are free. but we are hoping. people who supports mugabe the former president one of the good things done by zimbabwe's first leader will be forgotten. names. of the highest order. normally. respect to the africans.
5:04 am
in order. that. he knows the high expectations they know he is a businessman some here say that gives them hope he has realistic plans on how to rebuild a broken. so zimbabwe's new president will face an uphill task in trying to rebuild a country devastated by years of mismanagement since two thousand and nine zimbabwe hasn't actually had a currency of its own because of the hyperinflation which killed off the zimbabwean dollar. us dollar and the south african rand instead and more recently introduced a new bond as well at the turn of the century mugabe under pressure from war veterans demanding fairer distribution of land if victim four thousand wants from their lands to a dramatic fall in agricultural production in a country once described as the bread basket of southern africa and over the past
5:05 am
twenty years unemployment has risen sharply now running at more than ninety percent . so also the issue of those who have left the international organization for migration says there are up to three million zimbabweans living abroad many in south africa we spoke to one man who says mugabe's departure has given him some hope that he and his family could return. has his story from johannesburg. progress might get a remembers days in zimbabwe when all he had to eat was an avocado from a tree in his parents' yard and the sight of his friend's injuries after he'd been beaten up by police for supporting the opposition so that night when i hear that my friend one of my friend. was tortured and isn't working you can't even wake up that's the truth. he left his family and friends with here the heart of one of robert mugabe's legacies is that his policies divided families and
5:06 am
scattered zimbabweans over the world and this region's economic how the south africa has borne the brunt of that exodus in the street a lot almost every house is occupied by zimbabwe and many haven't seen their loved ones for years my brother was in the u.k. you couldn't make it even today if you know my my father and my mother but he's been in regular contact with his brother as mugabe's presidency crumbled it's created hope for the first time in years although the men sit to replacement he has been part of the establishment for decades. he's going to texas. now used to think of the people of zimbabwe. one to think whatever he did like. the vice president. gore. we don't know what capability i think he deserves a chance their three month old son is even more of
5:07 am
a reason to return home. now than this new future that you know we might benefit that might benefit our kids i really need to go home i will definitely go home. now the changes come there's certain it will be for the better tiny a page al-jazeera johannesburg. two other news in the u.s. secretary of state has issued his strongest condemnation yet of me and mouse treatment of the ranger calling it ethnic cleansing stills and visited me in my last week but avoided using that term sanctions now for those responsible for what he calls horrendous atrocities in rakhine state remember more than six hundred thousand range of muslims have escaped over the border into bangladesh since the military crackdown started three months ago lives a young girl now he's got hired let's talk through this one the difference so that basically a week makes. absolutely kemal yeah no he said that
5:08 am
there are still evaluating using that term ethnic cleansing when he was here in country last week and you know he was very critical about everything else if you will you know he said that you know there needs to be a fair and balanced look at review of what report of what has happened in the rakhine state over the last several months but he were didn't go as far as he did just late wednesday in washington d.c. issuing a paper statement saying that it is there is evidence that this is ethnic cleansing what's been going on in rakhine state over the last three months now what that does is it opens the door as you said kemal and he alluded to this last week the secretary that there could be targeted sanctions of military on military commanders who are proven to be behind what has taken place in rakhine state so that opens the door for that but it also increases international pressure you know this statement was received very welcoming leaf by human rights organizations the united nations who has united nations who has already said that this is ethnic cleansing weeks ago
5:09 am
so this really kind of ratchets up the pressure internationally on the government here on the military here in myanmar but it also opens the door in the united states for targeted sanctions he also told about the issue of repack trash and scott now this is important because as i said six hundred thousand people have crossed the border what is the latest with them as far as any chance of them getting on. absolutely will we know right now that the bangladeshi foreign minister is in country here there was a foreign ministers meeting asian and european foreign ministers earlier in the week the mung deputy foreign minister stayed on here with meetings for meetings just on that issue come on read repatriation today they're still ongoing they're behind closed doors these are negotiations over what hopes they hope both sides hope to be a member of understanding another it's kind of a framework of how possible repatriation will happen to very convoluted issue though kemal because you've got you know this as you said over six hundred thousand
5:10 am
refugees right into refugees who fled over to bangladesh many very quickly fleeing because of the of these attacks that they are facing so they probably don't have the proper paperwork so repatriating them is going to be a difficult process but at least now we know that both governments are sitting down bangladesh myanmar discussing how to move forward with what your paper repatriation over the coming days ok scott had to live in yangon thank you. developing story in the south pacific today police have entered a decommissioned prison camp on papa new guinea's mannus island to try to prevent refugees from talking about four hundred people who are refusing to leave the former australian run facility which was closed last month they say they fear being attacked by local people if they leave the refugees say police are packing up their belongings and have given them an hour to leave spoke to bettors but chinese earlier one of those refugees who gave us details of a police raid. in immigration markets are now. so
5:11 am
many special reports that the. time the prison camp. attack. a lot of refugees. this moment. it seems. to me gratian are. the police. destroying everything. it's throwing. you know our shelter. people treating people then you must move this prison camp. refusing to leave this prison camp because they are that we are not going to leave this prison camp and go to another prison camp joining us in sydney graeme tong he is a refugee coordinator with amnesty international you heard there part of
5:12 am
a conversation which i had with one of these refugees only a couple of hours ago anything more that you've heard from contacts and munna silence. well unfortunately the reports we're hearing a very disturbing and we're very fearful for burroughs that perhaps he is going to face arrest we want to make sure that the men are provided with water that they're provided with medicine that they're provided with health care where we're hearing that two may have already collapsed so we want to make sure that these men are actually treated humanely and that we don't see excessive force used to move these men to conditions that are essentially very close to the locals and where they fear for their safety can you expand on that for us because of the astray in government decommissioned this facility. and now wants to move the refugees out where this is where does it want them to go to to what it's an island. well
5:13 am
that's right but at the moment the center they're on is on the naval base and so you know it's a fair way away from the main town so the men feel much safer there because a number have been attacked in the last few months by locals serious attacks with machetes we've had men who've had their skull fractured you know there's a lot of. tension on that island between the refugees and the locals and what the straining government and the pain gee government have done has built new centers even closer to the locals in fact backing on to some of those houses and not surprisingly those locals are very upset if somebody built or a detention facility in your backyard you'd be pretty upset too and so the men are genuinely fearful about how these locals are going to respond if they move to those new centers where there are less services in the services they've had over the last
5:14 am
few years so no they don't like where they're currently yet but they certainly feel it's safer than where they're being asked to move so the people attacking them you keep saying local so these are people man asylum natives papa new guinea natives who are taking the law into their own hand effectively. well that's right and i think you know i'm an asylum and part new guinea is like any place you know there are those people there who are very sympathetic to the refugees and have been very supportive but there are also those who are very upset it's a very traditional island it's a very small island they have had cultural practices there that have not changed for centuries and to put you know six seven hundred men into a community the main town is only four five thousand papal has created
5:15 am
a lot of tension and you know the way that people resolve tension in pe injury is often by force and that's what we've seen in these recent attacks on the refugee and if you heard our earlier conversation just before we came to you we were talking about the situation in me and it almost reminds me the same thing we are dealing with people here who no one wants and no one wants to take responsibility for. who who is going to is just someone need to step up here for these four hundred people well we would hope the australian government would step up i mean ultimately these men are their responsibility they have taken them there and they have created this crisis this is a manmade crisis that obvious trailing governments making. we would like the u.s. to resettle more quickly there is that deal there but you know it's been over twelve months and we've only seen fifty four people taken from now ruined mannus new zealand has made an offer to take one hundred fifty people off now ruined malice
5:16 am
and unbelievably that's been rejected by the government it's just that there is a solution being offered or at least part of a solution that's being offered and that's been rejected by the australian government you know we would like other countries to work with a stray. the us these men have to get off that island and i have to get off very quickly but. ultimately is the one that is pulling the strings in this situation. pleasure to talk to you thank you for all of that information plenty more ahead for you on this news that the palestinian factions original agreement. for long postponed election it's also going to update you on the search for the missing . submarine and sport the usa gymnastics doctor facing a long time behind bars for sexual abuse.
5:17 am

5:18 am
you continued like this. we adjourn his defense team had urged the judge to halt proceedings citing concerns over his blood pressure but the court rejected the plea finding guilty on one of two counts of genocide and nine of war crimes and crimes against humanity during the chaotic breakup of the former yugoslavia the court ruled that milat it carried out a relentless campaign of ethnic cleansing aimed at ridding non serbs from bosnian territory there's nothing curious about executing prisoners disagree about. thousands of people from their homes. individuals prosecuted and convicted by these tribunals are in the receiver because it is being prosecuted and convicted for not respecting the geneva conventions among those crimes are some of the worst
5:19 am
atrocities carried out in europe since the second world war thanks to the four year siege of sarajevo in which an estimated ten thousand people were killed in shelling and sniper fire and the massacre of thousands of mostly men and boys in the town of srebrenica where my colleague david chaytor now reports. the mothers of srebrenica called once again in the horror of their own memories watching the court proceedings in the hague in a small museum in the middle of the cemetery where their loved ones are buried they wanted justice as ever then. when it came a surge of elation followed by a wave of emotion they'd waited twenty two years for this move but they too have all had a life sentences families and villages torn apart a heavy burden of grief that they will take to the grave. among them was not caught in this iconic photograph of the genocide pleading with a u.s.
5:20 am
soldier to help her get back her son and her brother but this was no safe so. and they were gone forever so they sort of. i am delighted that the court has brought such a judgment i'm happy i've waited for these judgment for twenty two days as a mother as a as a wife i personally fought for these so much from day one until today more than eight thousand muslim men and boys died in the killing fields around. but still one thousand victims have not been found every week in the forests and the hills around doing this cemetery they're finding yet more bones so the problem is what the future brings what do we leave toward children what happens after this the deep divisions between ethnic communities here look set to continue the service member of the tripartite presidency of bosnia herzegovina said the court did not deliver
5:21 am
justice but politics distrust instead of trust but said instead of reconciliation there will be political conflicts david chaytor al-jazeera. leading palestinian political factions including hamas and fatah have agreed to hold elections by the end of next year the group's made a joint statement following reconciliation talks in cairo last month when asked agreed to cede powers in gaza to the palestinian authority in a deal mediated by egypt now we spoke to mohammad always little bit earlier palestinian american political analyst and researcher who said the latest deal was sorely lacking. it's much about nothing with what they said now i think they have failed to achieve anything that helps the palestinian people whether in the west bank or gaza and i think this is between the top guys the big guys and everybody is trying to get the other side to surrender to the other i think it is
5:22 am
in the in the in the palestinian people's life and history that they do not agree even on opening the borders and negotiate an opening of the borders for the people in gaza from what i know i think the egyptians are much worse than the israelis now in keeping the blockade against the palestinians in order to bring down and bring a solution to their issues with hamas with targeting hamas and the palestinian people they are still refusing to open their borders they want to have control of the gaza strip like they did before nine hundred sixty seven war when are the knots are turned over the gaza strip to the israelis so what from what i see i think we are still not in the event the square one we are still outside the possibility of reaching anything that can help the palestinian cause and let's keep in mind the americans and the europeans will refuse and the it is on their books they will not
5:23 am
deal with any government that hamas is part of it so what kind of elections are we going to have and what are we going to do when there are elections and hamas is part of it. in lebanon prime minister has put his resignation on hold after returning home from saudi arabia. suddenly resigning in two weeks ago. political uncertainty this report from. he came home to take part in independence day celebrations eighteen days after announcing his resignation in saudi arabia it was the first time he has been back in beirut since that unexpected announcement and. he was received as a prime minister and warmly greeted by the president who publicly accused saudi arabia of forcing her to resign and preventing him from leaving the country the saudis said they feared for his life back home. did say he would clarify his
5:24 am
political position once back in lebanon and it seems a compromise deal has been worked out. of his resignation to allow for further consultations. i presented today my resignation to president and he urged me to wait before offering it and to hold on to it for more dialogue about its reasons a political background and a green. represents one of two major alliances in lebanon on the pro saudi camp hundreds of his supporters gave him a hero's welcome outside his home many lebanese from across the political divide believed he was being used by saudi arabia as a pawn in their attempt to target iran and that him and his family were held as hostages their. heads a national unity government that includes his political opponent the pro iranian hezbollah the prime minister has long demanded hezbollah this arms and ends its military interventions in arab countries.
5:25 am
that is a proxy state it's caught in the middle of a regional power struggle and it's in the pendants has long been open to question. the crisis that began with had it is resignation was widely seen as having been forced on the prime minister by saudi arabia to counter iranian influence in lebanon. i'm here with you and we will continue onwards together so we can be the line of defense for lebanon and for the stability of lebanon this gathering today is going to be repeated you will see me visit every part of lebanon how did say how long he's willing to put his resignation on hold political differences between the rival alliances are longstanding and unlikely to be resolved soon his decision to stay in office may be more of a result of mediation efforts by world leaders to put lebanon's latest political crisis on hold. beirut now the search for an argentine navy
5:26 am
submarine that's been missing for awakens reached a critical phase there are fears the forty four crew on board could be running on oxygen dozens of planes and boats are now searching the waters off the coast of the still not a trice of the vessel daniel with us from buenos aires. more than a week after the. last contact there is still no answers still no indication where it might be or what happened the only certainty is that if it is stranded at the bottom of the south atlantic its oxygen supplies are running critically low the search and rescue operation involves four thousand people from nine countries with more than forty ships sixteen aircraft underwater rescue equipment and the latest technology but so far their only leads have been false ones. a life boat was found all the manufacturing data was collected and verified with
5:27 am
the submarine command force to see if it was the same type the san juan may have it was determined that it did not belong to the submarine the t l one seven hundred class diesel electric submarine. built in germany in one thousand nine hundred three with capacity for thirty seven crude with a forty four on board when it disappeared it can sail it speeds of twenty five knots that's forty five kilometers an hour and dive to two hundred fifty meters these things have turned out well before a few years back russian submarine some people aboard a russian submarine were rescued what was said to be three hours of oxygen left and so as long as there's any hope and as long as the estimates go all the way out to two fourteen days which is the longest us and i've seen i think we have to assume that the crew install live and behave as if they can be rescued navy commanders say this has food and fuel for up to ninety days but diminishing oxygen supplies are a growing concern for the families of the crew and the whole of argentina. there
5:28 am
are still many questions to be asked about the age of the vessel whether it had a functioning backup communication system the quality of the maintenance but there for later for now with the energies or the hope is focused on finding the forty four crew members of the ira sound one alive and well. one of cyrus still ahead for you this news hour saudi arabia promises to ease its blockade of yemen the u.n. says that is welcome but it wants to see what actually happens also it faces controversy about the way it dealt with the massive security breach and spoke english premier league champions chelsea through the knockout round of the champions league. from dusky sunset so it's pruning savannah. to sunrise

atop an asian metropolis. we've got more rain coming into vietnam over the next couple of days adding to the flooding that is already in place central areas seeing some more heavy showers on shellshock was that cross the south china sea as you can see the winds are filtering in that the northeast and that weather that spreads right up into the southwest of china where we have seen some heavy downpours have also seen some snow a little bit of snow there on the northern flank all this wet weather which will intensify as we go through friday for the showers that into vietnam the cloud on the right that continues to across a good part of southeast asia heaviest of which the cloud tops as you can see they are across indonesia sinking further south which has been with us but still following the sun of course and the showers they will continue across a similar area as we go on through the heat of the dice i was really is the off in a way you can see the biggest downpours some office saying heavy rain heavy rain stretching up across a good part of. singapore connel imposing heavy showers those showers stretching
5:30 am
all the way up into a good parts of thailand where we'll see the showers also extending across the by a ping goal and that is how the cloud comes in now i think the southern india a fair bit of cloud coming in here but the heaviest downpours continuing to the southeast. there with sponsored by. at this time. one of the really special things that work is that even as a camera woman i get to have so much empathy and contribution to
5:31 am
a story. anyone else working for is you know it's very challenging liberally particularly because you have a lot of people that are divided on political issues we are the people we live to tell the real story so i'll just mend it is to deliver in-depth journalism we don't feel inferior to the audience across the globe. you're on the news here at al-jazeera these are our top stories police have entered a decommissioned prison camp. so if victor refugees about four hundred people are refusing to leave the former australian one facility is closed last month the
5:32 am
refugees are packing up there along. a man who will be the next president of zimbabwe says the country's witnessing a new stage of democracy former vice president. pressed thousands of cheering supporters and promised to deal with the economy and unemployment. and former military chief has been sentenced to life in prison he was found guilty on ten charges genocide and crimes against humanity during the bosnian war convicted of the massacre of more than eight thousand muslim men and boys at srebrenica and the siege of sarajevo in which ten thousand people died. so the saudi led coalition in yemen has announced it will reopen yemen's main international airport and a seaport to lessen humanitarian aid ports are closed to weeks ago after the who the rebels fired a missile towards. riyadh led to crippling shortages remember about seven million
5:33 am
people to depend entirely on food aid the u.n. has called yemen's humanitarian crisis the worst in the world. we're monitoring these developments and we're trying to see whether that actually takes place on the ground of course if that were to happen that would be a very welcome and critically important development we've made clear. tremendous amount of needs on the ground we're ready to help if the ports are open so we'll keep tracking this and and see where we go from there in washington d.c. for us hillary mann leverett she is c.e.o. of strategic political risk consultancy also a former state department official and regular al-jazeera contributor welcome hilary. it is obviously good news if these ports get opened up but you feel well perhaps too little too late i mean the situation is already bad enough has been two weeks of cutting people off from the they need. yes i mean the first
5:34 am
thing is what which is critical and what you un officials are saying is that we have seen no evidence so far that the saudis will make good on their their pledge to open ports particularly the critical port and data that's vitally important it takes in eighty percent of yemen's food imports so we'll have to really see whether the saudis make good on their pledge they have not done so before so we there is reason to be skeptical even if they do though the past two weeks in particular have taken the already dire situation in yemen to catastrophic levels there is a u.s. government agency here in washington that was created in one thousand nine hundred eighty five after the last famine in ethiopia to monitor conditions of hunger around the world and they just said this week that yemen is facing it's very the what they would categorize as the very worst conditions for a famine phase five almost like a hurricane category five a phase five situation for famine in yemen so the situation is critically dire and
5:35 am
if these ports are not open soon we are looking at potentially seven million people at risk for famine in yemen if this blockade is lifted is it proof of anything is it proof that international pressure works against the saudis is it proof that the saudis are just showing hey we're in control and we can do whatever we want whenever we want is this is this moving the story forward in. i think that pressure the pressure has worked and i think it is evidence that pressure can work as i as i mentioned though i think we really need to keep a close eye on this story it is one of humanitarian catastrophe and unfortunately prior saudi pledges to make good on opening not only the airports but keep ports like oh data which take in so much of the percentage of yemen's food a food imports and their medicines and sanitation that hasn't happened before so
5:36 am
well have to see but so far it does look like the pressure has worked the international outcry has has made a difference to me about u.s. pressure and or influence hillary because as we know this will the united states is an ally of saudi arabia but in particular this administration has shown in recent months how strongly it is linked to saudi arabia. yes in fact it started under president obama back in two thousand and fifteen the obama administration took the decision in part related to the dynamics involved in their negotiations with iran that to compensate saudi arabia for its misgivings over the iran nuclear deal the obama administration would in a sense give saudi arabia limited leeway to do what it wanted to do in the region including to invade and block a v.m. in the troubling ministration though has taken that to a whole new level signing even more arms deals supplying more ammunition and backing the saudis unconditionally in their blockade of that country. where i see
5:37 am
potentially some reason to hope that pressure though could change this dynamic is that within in washington the power dynamics have been and have become a bit complicated congress is getting increasingly concerned about what the saudis are doing and others in the administration outside of the white house in the state department in the defense department they're becoming increasingly concerned about the about saudi after actions in yemen but up until up until now the saudis do have a backer in the white house in president trump and his senior adviser jarred cushion or until that changes i'm not sure we're going to see a real change in the in saudi activities in yemen hillary mann leverett a pleasure as always and well that's there's the here already so happy thanksgiving thank you very much. so with yemen's hospitals close to collapse and famine imminent despite this use of the block a fig leaf to date and uses
5:38 am
a pleading for the complete lifting of the saudi the coalition's blockade yemen is suffering the world's worst cholera epidemic and now doctors are warning of an outbreak of the potentially fatal to theory a virus will then it smith has more on that. to be a new born in yemen means facing one of the toughest chances of survival in the world this is one of the only hospital still open in the capital at these babies make it out of here then they'll have to battle cholera malnutrition and now diptheria. and most of the hospitals in the capital of closed others are on the verge of closing perseverant because of the austerity measures we're implementing. in the central city of arab an outbreak of diphtheria is threatening children and the elderly is slowly recovering from a disease for which there's been an effective vaccine for one hundred years my throat was swollen my ears were painful the hospital has treated me but they don't have enough medicine sometimes my nose bleeds like yesterday when i was at school i
5:39 am
couldn't bear it hospitals and clinics which have been destroyed by war are already overloaded trying to manage a cholera epidemic and a million infected yemenis the two week blockade of see an airport by the coalition of countries led by saudi arabia is stopping essential medical supplies including vaccines from getting through. hundreds are dying because of the lack of medicine and other medical supplies we try to offer everything we can but there's only so much we can do within our limitations. the world health organization says diptheria is spreading quickly one hundred twenty cases and fourteen deaths have been confirmed so far most of the casualties the children bernard smith. russia's president vladimir putin has told his turkish and iranian counterparts that there is a real chance of ending the war in syria speaking at three way talks putin said he believed a new stage of been reached in the conflict or a challenge reports now in the black sea resort of sochi. the war in syria is
5:40 am
nearly over said the three presidents meeting in sochi now it's time to rebuild the shattered country. putin thinks a plan he's been pushing for weeks now is gaining momentum to do it anyway. i am satisfied by the fact that the presidents of iran and turkey have supported an initiative to hold an all syrian forum a congress of national dialogue in syria the kremlin driven initiative aims to bring a broad spectrum of syrian government opposition and civil society groups to sochi in early december to plan for the country's future. and join me in congo we have all talked about oppositions all three countries have spoken in favor of convening this congress of national dialogue. but the president has been telling putin he won't accept kurdish groups linked to the p.k. k.
5:41 am
being there and turkey's president still seems lukewarm on the idea. let me agree with president putin and he said we need to build on the momentum achieved as we talked together with mr rouhani we agreed that we need to extend our ties in all the areas. even less enthusiastic is the syrian opposition group the h n c which says it refuses to discuss the future of syria outside of the un's geneva framework at an opposition conference beginning in the saudi capital riyadh early indications are that groups will keep their insistence asaad must go despite pressure to compromise with his plan for a congress of national die. log russia seems keen to shape the political future of syria much like its already shapes the conflict if putin successful this will be to the benefits of his ally. and yet again the dreams of the opposition will suffer

rory chalons al-jazeera. the four arab nations blockade in qatar have now added two institutions and eleven people to what they call their lists of terror saudi arabia the u.a.e. behind and egypt's all claim the qatar based world union of muslim scholars and the international islamic council are promoting terrorism through islamic discourse though they offer no evidence for that the world union of muslim scholars is headed by use of i've got a diary and it has sunni and shia members in september it condemned saudi arabia for the reported arrest of more than twenty muslim scholars there but groups do have a large following around the world and as for the individuals add to the list will they include members of the outlawed egyptian muslim brotherhood columbia's deaf community has been forced to come up with new ways to discuss the peace deal reached by their government and the rebels it is a truce that has deeply divided the country is colombians of struggle to find common ground and as yet he reports those conversations have been particularly

difficult for the deaf. violence victim. displacement words and concepts difficult to grasp for many people but there were almost impossible for deaf colombians who were lacking words to describe them. now and you glossary the finds through signs in drawings fifty seven missing words to help this community understand in this case the country's peace deal with five rebels. who worked at the national institute for the deaf but dissipated in the process. before i had no knowledge of the context of peace it seemed like a boring issue what the country was living didn't interest me because i couldn't understand it now i'm able to read the text and understand many terms i'm able to connect concepts i'm included in the conversation with the assistance of a sociologist the group chose words that were either missing or required
5:44 am
