7:06 pm
that at least two men collapsed or were knocked unconscious in the raid police seized mobile phones to stop the refugees posting more videos and photos the flow of information became a trickle one refugee managed to speak to al-jazeera before his boat was confiscated. immigration law. only short for. proper. gratian not. everything about sixty refugees were loaded onto buses and taken away al-jazeera filmed them as they sped along the road into town refugees shouted help to us from an open window. a delegation from international humanitarian organizations
7:07 pm
who are visiting man a silent were promised access to see conditions in the former prison on thursday following the raid they were told their visit was off. there is the thing to so close and hear in my leader of civil society kind of thing getting in and from a democratic nation under the rule of law who for thirty years gone to lots of disasters and humanitarian situations and i'm not allowed to visit we were told to do that there was no way we'd be allowed past the checkpoint on the way to the prison. the men taken out brought here to loring the main town on the island then your accommodation is near here and australia's government says it's ready for them and they should have moved in weeks ago but i've seen some of the accommodation and the still heavy machinery working on it and we tried to film a new home from a nearby road so private security tracks stopped us this is the accommodation of
7:08 pm
the refugees are moving so the australian government says it's ready to go. but is that because there are trucks there it's clearly still being worked on but the state of the new camp isn't the major issue for the refugees our protest our resistance is. the main reason is because our freedom we want our freedom we didn't come from. prison for ever they fear being dumped what they see is merely an alternative jail still on a remote island and the australian government takes no responsibility for it at all andrew thomas al jazeera on man aside in papua new guinea. now zimbabwe's former president robert mugabe has reportedly been granted immunity from prosecution under a deal brokered as part of his resignation security and political sources have told
7:09 pm
al-jazeera the agreement guarantees his safety in zimbabwe and means he won't go into exile the sources say mcgarvey expressed that he wants to die in his home country. live out our correspondent andrew stevens in the capital harare and android guess is not a huge surprise is it that mcgarvey would have pushed for some sort of immunity deal. not at all what we understand is that he had thought that he had immunity against prosecution as he was defiant and refused to resign but it was make clear to him that in the impeachment process he would get no immunity that he would risk everything that is apparently from the sources we've been hearing from the situation now the question is whether it will extend for for a full lifetime for his wife grace mccarthy there's a more ill feeling towards her it's argued than him right now for her to seats is
7:10 pm
as is described by her opponents organizing so many political. attempts to undermine the other camp so to speak in the zanu p.f. party she's also accused of a number of of highly questionable dealings on land and property taking over large areas of land and property against the will of people so this is still ongoing but he does have security robert mugabe a ninety three year old not only that he can have access to foreign countries and that includes a visit probably quite soon to singapore for attention in a medical center and he's been frequently going to singapore he needs that link and that will continue but certainly right now as you can see from the picture that's been distributed on social media that he is looking grim certainly and
7:11 pm
not necessarily all well but certainly unhappy and so is his wife and he celebrations of course when a new hobby finally resigned but what is the mood do you think now in zimbabwe ahead of friday's inauguration the next president. is is on a really big mission to convince everyone but he can be trusted that his promises will be fulfilled it is a hard task but the. it's the answer is pretty positive so you see already from those pictures of massive celebrations on his arrival in zimbabwe of course on friday in a packed sports stadium expect elation there to really addresses the crowds. of office historic act as the new president of zimbabwe hopes are very high will they be fulfilled the jury is out on that particularly on the economy he has to deliver jobs he has to deliver good government it's
7:12 pm
a very very tall order but right now most people feel they'll give him the chance of full coverage of that of course here on out there i do for the moment thank you one of robert mugabe's most controversial policies while he was president was the land reform program it made it illegal for blacks in barbarians to seize properties from white farmers without compensation many of those farmers sought safety in neighboring countries such as zambia and i was there as tony page has been speaking to some of them. doug stanley loves the smell of freshly turned the site of his harvest makes it all worth the hard work farming is in his blood now he's working in zambia having been driven office famine zimbabwe by supporters of president robert mugabe fourteen years ago i bought my from after independence you know and i got clearance from the government to say that they weren't interested in that land
7:13 pm
and then. you know to be told to move along you know it's quite a thing and you do you do all that development and. it was my home four thousand white farmers were forced off the land damaging zimbabwe's agriculture industry its main export crop tobacco has almost recovered but the maize harvest which is also been hit by years of drought remains too large to feed the nation people are dying of starvation so their food. you know we really are living in. squalor fees and books and probably farmers in zambia and actually exporting fruit to zimbabwe zambia isn't the only country benefiting from the zimbabwean farmers expertise many are in south africa botswana and mozambique to another to some ministers and the homburg real jobs reason. five years ago and drive around to the farm and there was absolutely nothing happening
7:14 pm
and it wasn't only the white farmers who were affected their workers also suffered poor members living in fear of mugabe's supporters on the farm he flayed just before it was seized he's also still hurt by what happened a country is not about white black. yes. it is. like the it does the wrong there are zimbabweans who disagree many say they have been affected from the government's reforms. but they were devastating for those forced off the land they had invested time money and so much more and. now we don't belong anywhere we. like a lost tribe they are making a positive contribution and other countries but it isn't the same because it isn't
7:15 pm
hard tiny a page out zambia. oh i still had sown the program. the excitement of exile but in south korea success or failure can be a life changing experience. and a new development in the search for the missing authenticity and. the rain clouds have well and truly gathered across southern parts of china down into the southwest more big downpours coming in here cool and while cloudy there for hong kong on friday with a high of sixteen degrees celsius and the rain really setting in as we go on into sas they could be colder still just fifteen degrees at this stage. and they continue to be driven in the cross good parts of vietnam over the next day i was
7:16 pm
two for the philippines over the next day also the lobby showers they make their way across the by of bengal all the way down into sri lanka for much of india which should be settled and find a little more clout there into southern parts having said that and said the possibility of some some showers a little bit damp weather just up the eastern side of india over the next day otay may stay strong. small in the cooler weather into the northern plains new delhi at around twenty three degrees cooler to into where the arabian peninsula over the next day or so has of just twenty six celsius here in doha with a little bit of cloud you know just for friday a possibility of one or two spots in the heavier rain will be into west central parts of saudi arabia and southern end of the red sea certainly with a chance of seeing some wet weather a little drier and brighter by saturday. captaining
7:17 pm
a leading used team at sixteen years old takes determination. to that staying on top of your game at school. the whole family bands together and shares the sacrifices necessary for a son to have a shot at becoming a professional footballer. home game at this time. again i'm at the top stories here on al-jazeera and by that say they've signed a deal for the record tradition of hundreds of thousands of or injure. the un is
7:18 pm
urging australia to protect refugees as a detention center it needs to run in proper new guinea police on assignment of trying to evict hundreds of refugees who are refusing to leave. and security and political sources have told al-jazeera the zimbabwe's former president robert mugabe has been granted immunity from prosecution as part of his resignation deal. now most insurance the leader of germany social democrat policy has met the country's president to see if they can break a political impulse since the election that talks to form a government led by charles i'm going to call broke down over the weekend shows the so far refused to enter any coalition talks but is on the increasing pressure to do so while i was there was no mccains following that story in berlin for us and give us an idea of the significance of this meeting like. there's been a day of meetings mr schultz felicity as you say he met his social democrat
7:19 pm
colleague president frank in my earlier on today the last of the meetings a big part of main party leaders that mr sharon meyer said had to happen following the collapse of those talks between other parties just a few days ago after that meeting he went on to him mr schultz that is went on to a meeting of senior members of the social democrat party is still under way now effectively and that's the important because there have been it's been a clamor of voices from senior social democrats since the collapse of those talks between the free democratic to the greens and angle americans party over the weekend who basically said well look if there can't be a coalition with that side then perhaps we ought to go back into coalition again with angle america because they would be the only other party that could do that but of course the sticking point there is that mr schultz has insisted since the moment of the election defeat on the twenty fourth of september that he would lead his party into opposition so you have the sense of class not just between angela
7:20 pm
merkel and other parties but also between mr schultz and his own party colleagues or is a lot of talking taking place but what happens if they can't come to any agreements . well the doomsday scenario as it were would be new elections but the problem there is the devil is in the details because the constitutional arrangements in modern germany modern democratic germany since the second world war whether it's difficult to call new elections that it can't just happen with a clip by clicking your fingers and that sort of thing if your president frank that has to be a procedure that needs to be gone through and some say it couldn't the election couldn't be until april of next year so people want to avoid that so the question then would be if the social democrats do want to go into government again with mangler merkel then they have to basically say something now in the next few days the next week or so so that they can try to form an agreement because remember there are many other factors at play here the european perspective the talks about
7:21 pm
briggs it will take place in december the e.u. summit that sort of thing well that needs to have a stable government and one final thing to point out here the irony of the situation is right now the old coalition government the old grand coalition government is still in office doesn't have a mandate it's a caretaker administration mr schultz is happy for that government to continue but he doesn't want to seem to want a future grand coalition and that is what's being thrashed out right now by his senior party colleagues all right we'll wait to see what happens dominic embedded thank you. because as foreign minister has made the keynote speech at a counter-terrorism conference in london shaikh mohammed bin abdul rahman al thani says kathy remains resolutely committed to eradicating terrorism of all kinds. wants constantly. to seek a new collective approaches to the global threat on terrorism in a changing world. since two thousand and four that it took aggressive steps to cut
7:22 pm
off the flow of finance of terrorists by developing the proper legislation at the proper legislative framework and improve our financial monitoring system that has learned that they can't think terrorism and that side ology must be through a holistic approach by coming by combining tough security measures with more lasting safeguards we can all succeed. navy says the noise detected near the last name the cation of a missing submarine with forty four crew on board is consistent with an explosion a huge sea and as such is continuing off the coast of so find they are a san juan let's go to buenos aires and speaks out there is daniel daniel bring us up to date them the latest on the search is not sounding good. well as you say it's
7:23 pm
not looking good nothing has yet been confirmed but the fate of those forty four crewmembers on the submarine the twenty is looking increasingly grim a short while ago the naval spokesman enrique came out and said that they received information of an abnormal short of violent non-nuclear event which was consistent with an explosion that they come from a very roundabout way from the argentine ambassador in all three been talking to an organization there which was monitoring which monitors nuclear explosions is very kids was not a nuclear explosion but they then passed that information on to argentina and it's now being passed on to the families of those forty four crew members they are extremely angry some of them have come out to say why is it taken so long for this information to come to light and they are many of them now fearing the worst they are fearing that their loved ones are dead in the meantime the rest search and rescue operation is continuing it's a huge operation with at least nine countries involved latest technology under sea
7:24 pm
rescue equipment planes and ships right across the south atlantic looking for any sign of life from the submarine there have been a fair number of false leads in the last few days and now into the ninth day of the search and rescue operation and some of those false leads have been very frustrating they raised hopes and then dashed those hopes and expectations and again the families waiting at the. base hoping that this latest information will prove to be another false lead but it's certainly looking grim now for those forty four crew members and also time for the families. now it's been an important day in south korea with hundreds of thousands of students sitting their university entrance exams south korea is a competitive country and authorities take extraordinary measures to make sure students get to the tests and do well so depart is a day late and many businesses open later to reduce traffic congestion as you know

among students and to provide more learning opportunities a focus more on learning and less on memory. i believe the level of stress that students have from study is lower than the past second year student kung sailin agrees her stress levels are lower than they might have been but still not exactly low. just still exists because you know there are many academies and students are pressured to be more excelling because the universe never cities are you know a big factor in their futures. and for many students this test could still be the crucial factor that determines what kind of future they will have kathy novak al-jazeera saw. it has been three months since hurricane harvey slammed into the gulf coast of the united states and nowhere was harvey's devastation felt more than in arkansas county in texas where hundreds remain homeless for thanksgiving john
