12:00 am
establishment although it is something that the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has long argued for some expanded want to areas told us there about the services which. provides for palestinian refugees they help more than five million palestinians living in jordan lebanon syria gaza and the occupied west bank that includes schooling for more than half a million students last year and raised budget was more than a billion dollars the u.s. funded more than a quarter of that and was expected to do the same this year but it's only donated sixty million dollars so far which is about sixteen percent of its initial pledge more than a dozen donors have stepped in to help bridge that gap but in a season the european union sweden and india were among those that did confirm pledges well earlier i spoke to chris gunness who is and was spokesman and suggested then that although school has now started today for some of those schools that they may not be open for long. it certainly is coming very close to that we have opened our schools today thank goodness but we have money to run them only
12:01 am
until the end of september and at the end of september will be running on and we won't have enough money for us schools to pay our twenty two thousand teacher star but neither will we have enough money to run our nearly one hundred fifty. health clinics around the region and our relief and social services and other program in which we provide human development and emergency assistance for millions of registered public i'm refugees so does that just mean the door shut as simple as that or would you be able to reach you know run a small service or a more shoestring service well we haven't got to that yet we are hoping to be able to find the money hoping against hope to find the money and we are hoping that we will not have to make these painful decisions but yes as i said our new will be running on empty and painful decisions undoubtedly will have to be made and let's be clear the losers here are going to be some of the most disadvantaged and been
12:02 am
rable people in a very volatile part of the world and it is not in the interest of anyone who believes in peace to allow this to come to pass who you're talking to about getting more money chris because the obvious one is the united states because they have brought their funding levels down you talk directly to them who are still talking to we maintain a working relationship with the united states but to be honest we have been led to believe that we cannot expect any new money need for the end of this year the transit ministration out in january was cutting three hundred five million but of course we're talking to our traditional donors so saudi arabia for example which has already given a fifty million the u.a.e. has given us fifty million the turks. other the russians have been extremely generous we continue to talk to our traditional donors but also to emerging markets and as i say we hope against hope that we will be able to fill our funding gap but to be very clear that funding gap is two hundred seventeen million dollars it's
12:03 am
very mind chris want to make sure people understand the importance of the schools because you know when you look at the pictures of them i think that people outside the region might look at them i think over conditions aren't great literally been in war zones just tell us more about the importance of the schools and the fact that this is all these kids get absolutely i mean for palestinian children an unruly education is a passport to dignity imagine if you are one of the two hundred seventy thousand children who've been living under an illegal israeli blockade for the last ten years or more and it's a blockade also imposed by the egyptians imagine if you will that child in your aged about ten you will have lived through three highly destructive wars you will see youth unemployment around you at more than sixty percent you see more than ninety five percent of the drinking water and of the water around you and drinkable
12:04 am
use you know electricity prices you see a crisis in almost every aspect of your life what you can really hold on to is an education that is a passport to a different life we have been mandated by the general assembly to provide services until there is a just and durable solution it's not that perpetuates the conflict it's the conflict that perpetuates annorah and that's why we say there have to be meaningful efforts would dress the underlying causes of the conflict such as the blockade of gaza such as the israeli occupation such as the dispossessed the refugees that is the way to fall under a financial crisis. and just to underline what chris was saying about how important these refugee schools are just never a quick look at this it's a witness documentary from ten years ago here on al-jazeera about the then sixteen year old palestinian refugee mohammed farhad is a sixteen year old student at the luxor school it's funded by the u.n.
12:05 am
because palestinian refugees cannot attend lebanese schools these are the scores of mohammad is the first one is it was and if you look to see this is for example he put it to my pointing out of one from. here one hundred fifty years oh we're going to. benefit out. of the mohammed may be bright but as a refugee his opportunities for further education and jobs a severely limited. the conditions here out of his it up in to the people here and here have suffered from many of her many bad conditions as you see this old need to have that issue and that documentaries actually called one hundred at asian because with those grades he got a scholarship to attend the prestigious school in england for two years and earlier this year the rewinds team with elizabeth purana because out with him to find out
12:06 am
how the experience of changed his life in atl adult hood mohammed an asian it's from rewind in the program section at al jazeera dot com. he can get in touch with us as well contact details for you on screen in a moment i've already heard from i think it was mahmoud question instead of how refugee children expected to go to school when thousands can even find food secure their present then worry about their future well this is their future and it's the present all at once isn't it education as we said education is a child's basic right and it's the guestroom u.n.h.c.r. was saying a little bit earlier there will be such a huge domino effect on this if children don't get an education now sort of course food and shelter is important but education or most just as important for these children that number telegram and what's have posited seven four five zero one triple one four nine the hash tag is a genuine threat on twitter facebook and twitter and facebook where you go. now more than fifty thousand people are being evacuated from their homes in may in mar after a dam bursts look at these pictures
12:07 am
a salute the extraordinary at least one hundred villages flooded in the banco region in central me and along with a major highway part of the swat broke after heavy monsoon rains convoys of military trucks carrying boats are on the way but the army chief says the overflow channel cannot be controlled it's called her a meteorologist with us here in studio monsoons is does it come down to that simply partly yes if you're going to have a break in a dam a failure in a dam it's likely to happen at the end of a rainy season and the rainy season in this part of me and mob runs from about june to midway through september so we sort of near the end of that now at the end of august so if it was going to fail it will be when the dam was full and therefore around about now so has it been a particularly where it's season rainy season this time at the end of july and the beginning of august there were major floods in seven and coastal me in ma and one hundred fifty thousand people were displaced by the flooding so it was extreme the
12:08 am
place where this is happened is just on the northern edge i think of the worst of that rain so it would have had probably more than usual statistics from there are difficult to find but i would say it's probably been a particularly generous. monsoon season and that hasn't helped with the capacity of the dam either and any idea about forecast about what's any idea that's your job. is to have an idea of what i am please tell us we're expecting the rainy season to carry on until at least mid september and then things should ease off after that so probably the problems at the moment are going to be with the water that's already in the dam still coming out and the rain on top of that obviously isn't going to help ok steph gold has a major role it is here at where the staff on twitter feed and i connect with it thank you. we will stay with me in mar false allegations is the response of me and government to a damning report from un investigators on the military crackdown on the ranger and other ethnic minorities on monday u.n. panel called for an investigation and prosecution of million miles top military
12:09 am
generals including its army chief for genocide war crimes and crimes against humanity the un secretary general internal demanded accountability for what he called the horrendous persecution of the written at least ten thousand people were killed and more than seven hundred thousand fled the army crackdown that began last year just to remind you of where they are now and you can have a look at this for yourself if you want revenge across is explained in maps we're talking about the small strip of land here in orange called cox's bizarre between rakhine state and bangladesh and if we go a bit further on the next map you'll actually see here all the individual camps that have been established as a result of the exodus the biggest and most well known of those is a long. scent in this report for the news grid from there so here's the thing about a day like today walking around in the long camp here in cox's are bangladesh which is the largest refugee settlement in the world despite all the talk. emanating from
12:10 am
within the halls of the you win despite the u.n. fact finding mission report that was released in which it was recommended that general zinni and more and other top military officials be charged with crimes of genocide against him jeff you walk around here and you realize that whatever the headlines may be whatever the diplomats may be saying it really has no impact on the daily lives of the war hinges that are here and who continue to suffer look the conditions in this camp are much improved than they were a year ago when the influx started the camp is much bigger a lot of building has gone on their roads are dams or bridges but the conditions are still terrible steeple are still living in huts made of plastic and bamboo huts that can barely withstand the elements the rain when it's hot outside it's hotter inside of these tents so you become keenly aware that the plight of the or hinder
12:11 am
the suffering of the remainder continues now is really echoed from what i heard from hinges that i was speaking with today i spoke to a mother of five children a little while ago and she was telling me that she fled more last year with her kids she was recounting horrific tales the things that she had witnessed atrocities that have been committed against people in her village and she said that she hadn't known about the u.n. report and she had known about the u.n. security council possibly taking up the issue she's glad that that's happening but she doesn't think it's going to have any any discernible impact on them any time soon. you know without going there like mohammed has you could probably never understand what this journey has been like for these refugees the closest thing possibly some of this is a virtual reality to a from the al-jazeera interactive team which puts you as it says in the footsteps of a range refrigerate swell with your time you don't need of
12:12 am
a mask for this tablet you know i've got it on the i pad here the phone a computer works just fine it takes you through his ordeal as woman takes you through step by step in these footsteps if you search for that range of footsteps in the interactive section at al jazeera dot com you can have a look for yourself now on tuesday the president of the united states googled himself and he didn't like the result senators led to him accusing the search engine and its social media equivalents of political bias the first posted around five thirty am eastern time. google search results for trump news shows only the viewing reporting a fight news media in other words they have it rigged for me and others so that almost all sorries and news is bad but c.n.n. is prominent republican conservative and fair media is shut out illegal and then he goes on to say ninety six percent of results on trump news are from national leftwing media very dangerous google and others are suppressing voices of conservatives and hiding information in news that's good they are controlling what we can and cannot see this is
12:13 am
a very serious situation will be addressed that's quite a lot for five thirty in the morning isn't it here's more of what the president said though later in the day when speaking to reporters as well as google's response via our white house correspondent kelly how could. so i think google and twitter and facebook they're really treading on very very troubled territory and they have to be careful it's not fair to large portions of the population in a statement google do not ises searches are selective it says that when a user types a query into the google search bar its goal is to make sure they receive the most relevant alzheimer's in a matter of seconds search is not used to set a political agenda we don't bias our results toward any political ideology if trump is google searching himself in finding that a lot of people don't like him that's because a lot of people don't like him to be clear that would also been true if brock obama had googled himself let's talk to polka knew about as
12:14 am
a media consultant former editor of the sunday mirror joining us from london do you agree what our i guess just said in that sound bite there that basically it's not any great conspiracy it's just because people maybe don't like. i think that's very true and i think you can look at this in the context of the last few days i think the fall diversion and destruction comes into play along with the i word impeachment which is the theme of michael in the new your opinion tomorrow. if you look at the last few days apart but apart from the from his. fact a light attack on the google and other social media which is almost beyond beyond satire from the president to basically run his election campaign based around social media and is addicted to with. you know abuse and attack talking anybody who disagrees with on twitter by day but you but you've heard on this often a new read the story of the white house counsel will not gallons demarche or in the
12:15 am
future announced today on twitter by the president while you may say destruction you had at that rather bungled a pretty much all mexican trade deal again destruction you had him saying that if the democrats win the midterms they'll be violence on the streets another destruction you could even say that the consolation of secretary of state might pump a rose trip to north korea was destruction especially given the fact that the president had been ignoring for weeks advice from his intelligence service in that he was being played for for rather a fool by him young hoon destruction when everyone is under pressure and things are going badly as they are the moment with the muttering cooperate of course and of course the guilty plea by michael cohen is form a and the can and the conviction of paul none of that is from a company manager it's over the default position of donald trump is to divert and
12:16 am
try to seize the news agenda and take it over which to the extent he's been used to do with a lot of your day pool he thought their view. hours but he says that he says a lot of things i know but he says in the last bit of that tweet will be addressed at how could a president address such issues as he sees them because once the leadership starts interfering with the media and with the internet and the way it works that starts to sound like a dictatorship well i hope talking to me privately after the president. will one senior google official did want to be quoted said i said aspiring autocrats like it when social media is tread is trending against them rather than for them and they also went on to say particular to echo the irony of the twitter addicted president attacking social media
12:17 am
including the platform that he favors or very strange but of course any serious move to try to regulate or outlaw aspects of social media would be very hard to get through congress and would also clash very very much with the american constitution's first amendment so quite how it donald trump would do things he could actually change things i do i don't know but i think that above all this is this is distraction strategy more than anything else we wait for the next tweet shall we pull can you joining us from london thank you. reveal you've been doing some googling of your own today to take us through why have we so we decided to take matters into our own hands and do our own google search results test this was over a space of three hours and we search for donald trump and what we found in the news section at ten g.m.t. the three top stories came from c.n.n. and n.b.c.
12:18 am
news outlets and they were about the us primaries and how the president has a proven record of picking a winning candidate and then there was another article about trump strengthening his grip on the g.o.p. and his role within the republican party at eleven g.m.t. articles from the telegraph the guardian and the new york times top that list with similar headlines things like trump warns of left wing violence if republicans lose control of congress in the midterm elections and then at twelve james he found the same results from the hour before but if you use just scroll down a little bit you can see that some of these articles were related to google where the president alleges that the news coverage is rigged against him. now in looking for trump news the search results were slightly different but still pertaining to current events and changes to the news cycle there were stories about north korea and also the mexico trade deal but most of it was really about the florida primaries what's important to point out here though is all of these articles are
12:19 am
published by established news outlets but they are old disliked by the president well let us know what you think of the story get in touch he's the hashtag. maybe it's just the news as we said before unfortunate this document reporting to you is no longer available online for rights reasons but there's still a good read here about how social media and so-called fake news that is misinformation not just what trump calls fake news actually played a big role in getting him elected it's a good perspective and lot of these most recent comments if you look for i'm fair game how trump won at al-jazeera dot com you can read that. thank you for getting in touch with us those of you who have plenty of you on facebook talking about donald trump at the moment crystal says it's starting to sound like a dictatorship here in the united states and elena says usually no one likes what they find when they google themselves i wouldn't know and so i just don't do that i've never googled myself and if you want to talk with us please do have a script. with
12:20 am
a news group if you're on facebook live with us now that if you join us we have an amazing story now grit and find out how an iraqi woman who lost five of her children in the civil war is now looking up to her twenty two grandchildren the story and after the break to india where rights groups are accusing the government of muslim descent. hello there it's rather quiet across the middle east at the moment is generally hot and it's fine but towards the northeast not quite as hot here mafia maximum temperature probably of around twenty two degrees as we head through thursday and do expect maybe a few showers particularly in the afternoon another area we've got a bit more in the way of clouds here on the coast of the black sea that's drifting its way eastwards and only more showers popping up here as we head through the day on friday to the south of that though it's fine enjoy just pretty hot at the moment
12:21 am
as you'd expect at this time of year say for baghdad expect a temperature of around forty seven and forcing kuwait will be around forty six but it's not the whole here in doha temperatures for us to hovering at around forty to forty three degrees but that's because it's far more humid the humidity really has risen over the past few days and it's going to stay very very sticky as we head through to day and friday for the south from us and you can see that all cloud around parts of a man that could just squeeze out one or two showers at times but for most of us it should stay dry down towards the southern parts of africa are largely fine and settle for most of us here you can see the winds feeding in from the seas though so around the coast of madagascar they could be one or two showers and ditto for surround parts of mozambique towards the west there is looking fine and dry eighteen in cape town. this is life on the streets of l.a. . from
12:22 am
a good discovery of the terror is an opportunity to escape and become some a man for the tuition of a plane. perhaps a life time. little princess part of the viewfinder latin america scene. at this time. one of the really special things about working for al-jazeera is that even as a camera woman i get to have so much empathy and contribution to a story i feel we cover this region better than anyone else. vividly particular because you have a lot of people that are divided on political issues we are we the people we live to tell the real stories all just mended is to deliver in-depth journalism we don't feel in a good audience across the globe. headlines
12:23 am
that al-jazeera dot com what's trending as well. they are rushing engaging in a war of words. a lot of people looking ahead to what may or may not happen in italy morris well on me and bobby wine so much to talk about with him and his
12:24 am
wrists in the last few weeks of variety there actually today that's what is what's trending this whedon's day. dot com. top court has stopped police from jailing five rights activists and lawyers who were arrested on monday they're accused of supporting band leftist rebels active in some pockets of india and of inciting violence between those at the bottom of india's caste system and right wing protesters the supreme court however has ordered the five be kept under house arrest not transferred into police custody human rights groups say the arrests aim to quash dissent in india really they can you expand on this one for us because i imagine for hashtags that it is obviously brings up a lot of feeling definitely and there's also been a lot of misinformation being circulated online around the story. one wish actually is about activists who apparently was behind a plot to assassinate have been
12:25 am
a they're under modi and there is a range of has tags leading the conversation on twitter some include the names of the five activists and the lawyers arrested well others which have been set up more recently include the name of the village where rightwing activists cashed with members of india's lower cost in january there's also defend the defend this where people are calling for the release of the activists now while people are protesting on social media dozens gathered in front of the main government office in new delhi on wednesday demanding the same thing and this cartoon has been shared hundreds of times a contrast between india and new india the fist seen as a symbol of resistance is now in shackles as represented now in new india. and then add the stay and have oxide in india and honestly its national india have condemned the arrests they post at the safeway on twitter saying the government should
12:26 am
protect people's rights to freedom of expression and association and peaceful assembly instead of creating an atmosphere of fear they're also telling the story of the activists who were detained as part of the online campaign with the title crackdown on activists cannot become the order of the day we also heard from amnesty's executive director in india this is what he told us i think the expression of any form of dissent has come of the danger to do is we have to learn to express it in the bust in the police with the rule of law is weak those people who have been the malays have been murdered on the streets given that most feel it was incumbent on this government to ensure that the kind of demonization of the people picked up many of them with work decades long respectable people. whose names have been bandied about in allegations that include assassination attempts at all sorts of outrageous allegations this sort of thing should have been
12:27 am
handled with care what has happened and still is reckless bags from the state and amnesty india is. believe that they should stop immediately and these individuals should be released or send us your thoughts especially if you are currently in india is the hash tag aging is what thank you are here the current demand is with us now a lawyer from india's supreme court in new delhi on skype thanks for your time. i mean the fact that the supreme court has said house arrest rather than actual arrest i guess is good for these protestors however what does this mean for democracy in india or if human rights activists can just be arrested like this. you know not just. point of course is that at the first instance it's governments that must be here constitutionally and in accordance with due process of the rule of law because once accused starts there's a winner which just
12:28 am
a show of force of the inertia makes it a juggernaut that keeps going to some extent so i think the point you're making is great great but at the same time i am proud to be part of the legal system there because not only have two high courts up the supreme court itself to do said that dissent is an essential part of democracy but it's pressure that. that keeps it going and i think that you know that the supreme court of the courts being there standing up as a constitutional boardwalk against the kind of winning that we saw in. you know what what one of the dark day of the darkest hours of indian democracy that we report to as the emergency in the in the lives lane nine hundred seventy is. it is something to be to be glad for but of course you know i think the point is that we
12:29 am
cannot. stand for i think as a polity this kind of bullying by government particularly when it comes at a time when attention is sought to be deflected from unemployment. but you will prices from. desart support of organizations that legs and happens and where one's and bomb making devices have been seized that's why there's a particular being drawn between these people. many of whom for example you know give back to india give up one from give a bigger bite and give up u.s. citizenship and has been working with the poorest and most disadvantaged people to support you have them which absolutely no answer and sorry to interrupt your career i would be concerned that this sort of clampdown on dissent could actually get
12:30 am
worse or it could it could carry on the reason i say that is because we are rolling towards an election in india it's hard to see it's pretty many others. and look the thing is that i mean there are there are various academic studies that show that when there is. the or when there is a religious triad it is the beauty of the the benefits saw i mean and i am concerned about all sorts of things in the run up to the election in terms of in terms of the crackdown on dissent it's been happening and it's been happening for a while this is one of the egregious forms in which if you have any for instance we also have the situations where in the state of a top of the you know most populous state where. you know people sort of can project is going actions have been saying all along that under this present
12:31 am
government they have no fear now of getting people lined possession of eight. which so there is all sorts of lawlessness and that that one is concerned kareen wynter joining us from new delhi i thank you for your time much appreciated now officials in the puerto rico are now saying three thousand people died following hurricane maria last year that is nearly fifty times the number previously reported officially it destroyed much of the u.s. army in territory last september the white house then said the relatively lower number of deaths was a good news story that's what they said back then compared with say hurricane katrina now though the trump administration is being accused of deliberately downplaying the impact of the storm. so that's one part of the story at the moment . devastated puerto rico that is the tourism industry local community but they've
12:32 am
been pushing hard to make some sort of comeback and really has been looking at this one for us that's right come all i want to put chu wash i want to point out one really prominent image that's got a lot of people's attention after the hurricane hit puerto rico that's what residents scribbled a plea to the wells on the pavement of an intersection in the neighborhood of point to santiago and how the sign says s.o.s. we need water and food highlighting the struggles people are facing with no electricity and when dealing supplies well now fast forward to eleven months later the town has a new message one of grit and hope with the slogan be envied us which means welcome inviting tourists to visit puerto rico and this has triggered a wider tourism campaign online called cover the progress looking at how the community is trying to rebuild their lives and the island has how it started.
12:33 am
another los angeles voted over what i have done today. and. that will influence it and it will be on the. t.v. a little bit better than i used to be and you know you mentioned the other harry and the lady to tell other people outside of the for you but what they needed to have. the in the in the in the middle. of the wreckage that you know. the memory is not the only thing that. you know and then he got married and. and i was also sharing their stories and pictures on twitter this is it talks about what her school looks like now one year after the hurricane and then another shows how a tree house was revived from the ruins well news coverage of long power cuts kept them a taurus away from puerto rico in the months off the maria hit in fact the hurricane
12:34 am
caused the largest blackout in u.s. history this is according to the road and group a recent research consultancy firm and some online us all saying that there are still power cuts in some parts angela says she has lived without electricity and water for over two months often maria adding it still comes and goes under any circumstances and then michael says areas on the island outside of the capital still lose electricity every day however whoever tells you the situation has returned to normal there by intentional ignorance is not telling the truth well for to reckon officials are working on undoing the destruction but progress has been slow and puerto rico's governor estimates that the plan to fully repair its infrastructure and power grid will cost one hundred and thirty nine billion dollars so if you are currently in puerto rico we do want to hear from you send us your stories your pictures or your videos is the hash tag that thanks for having puerto ricans recovery definitely the territory
12:35 am

effort to reduce tensions with locals latin america is to the sea and human is following developments for us from some tackle in chile hi there you see so why the deployment of more troops. hello julie won't first of all you probably will remember that just a couple of weeks ago there were clashes between brazilians and some of the refugees when they were not apparently one brazilian was attacked by one of the venezuelans and people were sent fleeing back across into venezuela for their own safety the government sent two hundred soldiers in to try to protect them but clearly that is not enough because more and more people are being diverted to the road i am i to brazil as other countries like ecuador and cruel make it more difficult for the venezuelans to get in demanding that they have passports and so this is just spiraling. out of control more and more and more of the border countries and the ones that follow south towards countries like chile are becoming if you like clogged with venezuelan refugees that many countries simply can no

longer process in fact michelle temper says that he may actually start limiting the number of venezuelans that can cross into the border very soon because he's not stopped them but of these limit the numbers because he says the country simply cannot deal with them what he calls now a crisis that is affecting the harmony of the whole continent julie and lucy and you were in venezuela recently what was that like while stories were you hearing from. yes in fact i just just arrived back in chile from venezuela one of the interesting things that there are so many things that are happening now that the migrants especially that are trying to leave but can't do so because there are no buses cars etc but at the same time the government is trying to do something that it has never dared to do before and that is raise the price of gasoline not or or petrol not just to make it more expensive for the locals but also to stop not just the flow of migrants but especially the flow of fuel across

the border and this was our story. in an oil rich countries like venezuela it's one thing to subsidize quite another is to give it away. it's a gift without pay is not even enough to. thanks to. one u.s. dollar and imagine this if you can a one thousand. point zero zero one cent. took them out. except here. and there's incredible is that i can still use it here to buy a hundred and sixty six leaders of the highest. at the venezuela colombia border where small and large scale smugglers operate in broad daylight the price distortion feeds a lucrative black market with billions of dollars but now in an attempt to rescue
12:53 am
venezuela's drowning a commie president. has announced a plan to stop the leak. wayland's have until the end of the month to register their cars for an unspecified amount of subsidized petrol before prices go up dramatically for everyone else. this would put the lucrative black market out of business but there's a problem. you can stop. the members of the national guard stationed on the border patrol and allowed to cross the border. venezuela could certainly benefit from cracking down on corruption on its side of the border and selling the petrol it's been losing at international prices just as
12:54 am
necessary finally seem serious about raising prices at the pump. we don't know how much it's going to cost. that generates confusion and. historically raising the price of petrol has been a controversial and explosive issue. in venezuela. yet even the most skeptical admit the giving away petrol is less of a gift than the symbol of an economy in freefall. indeed as soon as you see him there is something going on there are so many problems with the economy what the president is doing with the price of petrol may be necessary will it will out be enough to stop the hyperinflation that is affecting the country and that is driving hundreds of thousands of people across the border all the time every month month by month and by the way that is also it is the reason why latin american countries have called for a special summit next week to try to see how they can face this crisis together

using the sea and human there live from santiago in chile to see i think. the u.s. president has announced that white house lawyer donald mcgann will leave his polls trump tweeted that mcgann would leave after the potential confirmation of judge britt. to the freedom court in september or maybe i'm told but let's go live to kimberly how could who's in washington so what's the significance then of his departure. well the time is certainly timing rather is certainly significant you have to remember that when he was appointed back in november of two thousand and sixteen by the president also called him a brilliant legal mind saying that of don mcgann but specially in recent weeks there has been perhaps behind the scenes a bit of
12:56 am
a falling out if you will between the two certainly he has been it has been widely reported in the united states adama ghana's been getting quite a bit of pushback with his suggestion to donald trump and others in the white house that the president should not fire the special counsel robert muller who is looking into russian interference in the twenty sixteen u.s. election whether or not there was any possible collusion or obstruction of justice by the president donald trump but it's more recently that dom against name has been injected back into the headlines julian that is because of some interviews that he gave to the special counsel robert muller and fact widely reported that there were three interviews totaling about thirty hours in total and that could be very problematic given the depth and breadth of those interviews for the u.s. president. donald trump for his part pushed back on those reports saying in fact that he had quote allowed don mcgann to testify and in fact that he has nothing to
12:57 am
hide and kimberly who might replace him. well this is also very interesting and i'll tell you why we have these congressional elections coming up in november very important because they could determine which party controls the house of representatives and of democrats when it historically the pendulum goes back and forth that would mean potentially that they would call for impeachment hearings against donald trump this may be on the minds of the president because rumor to replace dom again is a man by the name of emmett flood and the reason that name is interesting is the fact that he represented president bill clinton during his impeachment proceedings back in the one nine hundred ninety s. committee out there live from washington d.c. kimberly thank you well the fifty thousand people have been forced from their homes and sent to me in march after possible burst flooding times in villages government officials say the swat shown that dam spillways structure broke the monsoon rains
12:58 am
in the boggle region about twelve thousand homes have been inundated with floodwater a major highway has also been forced to close at least two people are missing after being swept away. maritime authorities are calling for calm after french and british fishing vessels clashed in the english channel in a dispute over scholarships now forcing french fishing boats to part in the territorial battle north of normandy on choose the french fishermen through smoke bombs and the british vessels as three boats were damaged french fishermen say rules which ally british crews to be controlling earlier in the year are depleted stocks of the shellfish. and the good. french fishermen have quote says we have committed hours the british don't have anything they didn't have quote says they can fish for seven days they come they dredge they fill up the whole lot and then they go home. well for more on this we're joined by our correspondent paul brennan who's joining me in the studio hi
12:59 am
there paul it looks like a pretty violent confrontation from the footage that we're seeing but if the british are entitled to be there what's going on well basically the french as you heard from the clip that was just played are very unhappy that the british can fish for scott for scollop throughout the whole of the summer when they are prevented from doing it is one of the few fish that is controlled by the on the french side by national laws as opposed to e.u. laws and they're shut out of their fishing grounds from the fifteenth of may through the first of october and what they're concerned about is with the british being able to fish those grounds throughout the summer by the time the french arrive on october the first it's really only the scraps that are left for them that's what they say that said there are restrictions on the british and they aren't allowed to go within twelve miles of the french coast and these british boats were not within twelve miles of the british coast so it's perfectly legal for them to fish were they where and the french authorities appear to be indicating that the protest that took place on in the early hours of tuesday was
1:00 am
a kind of freelance operation didn't have official sanction at all how to television crew along with them for publicity purposes it appears but nonetheless does not. that doesn't mean that the british were acting illegally it's just an expression of the frustration of the individual friendships. i'm wondering if anyone's looking at a kind of an explanation behind this increased tension i mean obviously these rules have been place for a while could this have anything to do the fact that as we get closer towards you know some sort of agreement around break say that we can see some of these rules changing could that be an explanation as to why there's a high tension yeah i think i mean there's two two aspects to it first of all the has been the deal this tension has been going on over the sculler scalloped feels for around five years now and there was an agreement that british boats long longer than fifteen metres wouldn't fish that area until october the first small boats would be allowed to that was agreed but it wasn't agreement that fix this year so
1:01 am
it's been a free for all this year and that's raised the tension in the background of course is.
