base in the middle east siding with the blockading countries. at the time many believe the saudis fawning treatment of him in riyadh played a part but we now know thanks to e-mails leaked to the associated press that the push to get the president to side with saudi arabia and the united arab emirates began months before the emails are from brodie a big time republican fundraiser according to the a.p. he was working with george nader who said he was close to both of the crown princes from saudi arabia and the u.a.e. broady reportedly lobbied the president and later received hundreds of millions of dollars worth of defense deals from the u.a.e. in one e-mail bertie boasted about his role writing trumps vocal support of saudi arabia at this summit quote is a direct result of the campaign we have led over the past two months to highlight the funding of terrorism by cutter and the muslim brotherhood brody is suing cutter he says they hacked his e-mails

a positive outcome according to the new york times the saudis and u.a.e. offered to help the drone campaign before the election it's unclear if anything was done on his behalf with their money but it's an allegation special counsel robert muller is likely looking at the man at the center of many of these questions george nader is cooperating with the investigation. al-jazeera washington well tuesday is the first anniversary of the blockade being imposed against castro and we'll have a special program looking at the political economic and human impact of the crisis you can see it at eight hundred hours g.m.t. on tuesday appear on al-jazeera. hundreds of bodies have been found in mosul almost a year after the iraqi says he was taken from i saw they were buried in ruins along the banks of the tigris river channel strafford reports from baghdad. it's been eleven months since iraqi prime minister hydrilla body declared victory over eisel in mosul much of what was iraq's second biggest city lies in ruins the fighting was
4:21 pm
described as the most intense urban combat since world war two. the search for bodies goes on civil defense search and rescue teams are concentrating on areas close to the banks of the river tigris it was here that the iraqi government forces supported by international coalition airstrikes flushed out and killed most of the last remaining leisel fighters in the city i saw bodies that were covered around seven hundred these bodies were all of i still that used to hide in these houses are obstacles and clearing these bodies out of the unexploded munitions hidden bombs explosive vests and rigged houses with i.e.d. as we are trying our best to overcome these obstacles. to the remains of eisel fighters are being found close to dead civilians who were on able to escape which estimated around ten thousand civilians were killed in of
4:22 pm
a province in the battle against isis most of them in western mosul then. we have been pulling up bodies for eight days already from near the river tigris perhaps within this quarter alone we have found two hundred bodies on the thursday four hundred on the second day and around a hundred on the. we have difficulty getting heavy machinery aside all city because of the. more than two million iraqis remain displaced across the country including approximately seven hundred thousand from mosul the rebuilding of the city has yet. to start families like these face many more months if not years living in camps the delay is primarily because of questions about who will foot the bill at a donor's conference in kuwait in february iraq allies for help with the eighty eight billion dollars cost of rebuilding this country including mosul but only
4:23 pm
thirty billion dollars was pledged the iraqi government faces having to cover the majority of rebuilding costs itself for now almost a year since the battle against leisel in mosul was one the search for and recovery of the dead continues shall stop at al-jazeera by dad here with the news from out zero still to come on the program the president of spain's catalonia region holds a crucial meeting with leaders good sort of independence. no more refugees italy's government begins a new push to stop asylum seekers reaching it chills and later in sport brazilian strike a name makes the perfect return from injury just in time for the world cup. back now to one of our top stories at least twenty five people have been killed in guatemala in one of the most violent eruptions of the go volcano in decades that
4:24 pm
figure is expected to rise david brother three is volcanologist and professor with the open university he joins us now via skype from milton keynes in the u.k. could have you with us david let's just clear something up right from the beginning here these reports of these people being killed by a lava flow they're not entirely accurate. no it was i saw it described was a river route that's not the case there's a pirate trusting slows a lover is molten rock relatively slow moving lots about erupting in hawaii at the moment what's how what happened at the way you go is an explosive eruption and it was a fast cascade of fragmented hot rock and gas sweeping down the mountainside the troubles at one hundred kilometers an hour it's very difficult to escape from it it's coming towards you and that seems to be what killed the people it's a bit like pump a is that right exactly like pump i will pump eight was was
4:25 pm
destroyed by a much bigger eruption the eruption of the suv yes nearly two thousand years ago now but part last it flows part last searches yeah not starts what's been killing people in guatemala and what killed people pompei as well ok so how is it that people living near a killer where in hawaii. could be moved to safety prior to its latest eruption and yet in guatemala here we have all these people being killed. well it's a different hast in hawaii and lava does move more slowly so you can see it coming towards you and gets out of it but way and the world monday tree evacuation notice is issued. in the relevant region of killer work to get people out of the way of a lot of the flows in the case of franco it's been clear up particularly active all year and have been some smaller events. with hindsight people might start to ask
4:26 pm
why were people not evacuated because people were killed tooling the sails if this is being in indonesia people would perhaps have been evacuated beforehand so i don't know if anything it was something truly did go wrong didn't quite have things went wrong there and people weren't evacuated to fall kind of was known to be in the heart of the states have done just a nice park last it flows with hindsight at least not all that surprising some little bit surprised but people were still close enough to be killed with killer way i am i right in thinking that there wasn't such a big bang it didn't go off all at once the eruption was sort of it took hours days weeks even whereas here we have this place all almighty explosion. well the wasn't all much explosion the ghosts of modern vulcanologists the saying that the russian is now over in the case of killer where it's ongoing it's a different kind of volcano eruptions round the rim of the pacific the so-called
4:27 pm
ring of fire tend to be much more explosive but eruptions in hawaii why this is slowly fusion of want to run iraq for help in some explosions at the summit but what's destroying houses is relatively slow moving genuine rivers of a lot of molten lava flows you can get you can't you can't stop them but you can get out of the way of so it was plenty of warning in hawaii it's better monitored it's a different kind of acid as well so david went when you get a volcano like for a go which you say is very different when it when it goes off bang like this with such a a big explosion does that tend to be i don't know it's been active for quite some time are we likely to see anything as explosive as this again in the near future. seismically it is gone quiet there's limited information going on can see nick watson all the local knowledge is now suggesting that the eruption is over. it's
4:28 pm
so i have to say good judgment on not historically of course of all kind a lot flanker will sign up to sign up to this is probably it for now but in the next ten years maybe tomorrow maybe not for ten years it could be another eruption just a saying david i learned a lot many thanks indeed for being with us david rather than build up here it's anti immigrant sentiment seems to be rising across europe with slovenia becoming the latest country to elect a populist party after its neighbors italy and hungry although former prime minister yes anxious right wing party won most votes in the election and fell far short of a majority twenty novak reports from the piano. he's a former prime minister was disgraced by a corruption scandal but now you understand and his slovenian democratic party are back on the political map his hard line on immigration secured his party
4:29 pm
a victory in this election immigration has been at the top of the political agenda since two thousand and fifteen when half a million people playing ball pass through slovenia on their way to best in europe close a playful pose almost foreign challenges that are part of the domestic challenges include the modern crisis so it's a challenge for the whole of the e.u. during a biggest wave of mass migrations we told our european partners that a better large should be in short supply back in their countries and not in europe listed on his nearest challenger was comedian turned politician martin charles leader of the new center left party whose three more trussell trust the first it is impossible to bias he said it publicly before the elections that we will not enter a yani stance as coalition let's give time to the relative let's give him the chance to form a government and then we will see what happens if we have this opportunity they will form the government. the snap election was called after the sudden resignation of prime minister. he stepped down in much due to
4:30 pm
a failed railway of project. he's credited with boosting slovenia's economy after recession but it wasn't enough for voters here slovenia once a part of former yugoslavia joined the european union in two thousand and four a government led by an agenda which if slovenia to the right and add an anti immigrant voice to the analysts a youngster has a big challenges ahead the electorate is here in the voices are hungry after all and it's ocular to you know go after and go after and immigration policies after the say that you will draw a crowd you know dream the song that being said he's a leader who has had the chance he hasn't done it so far will he do it this time around it's a big question but the bigger question is can he even form a government even though again his ounces my tailbone most votes in this election we'll find himself in a difficult position and it will be very hard for him to find
4:31 pm
a willing partner in the other part just want a coalition most of them don't share his political beliefs and all of them. out zero zero zero s. now what from the slovenian capital. yes so the former prime minister's party got the most votes in the of the action is he going to be able to form a new government though. in this moment it looks like that's the mission impossible and that's the exact awards that the un is young she used last night when he was saying about the future of his party and slovenian politics after these elections the nine parties won the seats in the parliament the biggest number in slovenia and parliamentarian his story and he said the. only two parties including his party's third are ready to form the coalition with him and they don't simply have enough seats in parliament that the
4:32 pm
biggest problem for the other parties and the leader of said that last night is his rhetorics he's on team leader and he's a very viktor orban from hungary kind of politician including that mr obama was visiting his rallies of before the elections here in slovenia so he said the president said he will get the first meant that by the end of this week to start and try to form a coalition government but he said if he doesn't succeed he is ready to go to new elections after the summer the leader of the party that came second in sunday's election is a relative newcomer to politics what can you tell us about him. yeah he's a new face in slovenian politics he's a former doctor the former comedian who used to imitate his political opponents alexandra during his career he joined mayor of small town thirty kilometers from
4:33 pm
capitol of slovenia he joined state politics exactly last year one year ago when he entered the presidential race nobody gave humor any chances in that time but he. ended the runner up he was on a second place with forty seven percent of wards of slovenia any president in presidential elections now he's on the second place in the parliamentary parliamentarian elections he many left. all the slovenian parties he said for himself that he is the center left but he doesn't want to be connected with the series or in greece or a five star movement in italy he said he just want to look future to his time is coming and he said that he expects from the president of slovenia that after he and his young failed to form the government gave him monday to form the government but he also said if he needs five or six parties to form the government he will just say no let's go to the new elections because without so many parties in the
4:34 pm
