3:00 am
potentially hamas and hizbollah. so this is a bit of crystal ball gazing but who's next you know you've had palestine in pakistan now and if you want to go further back there's been this disengagement for all the paris climate of colds for all the trans-pacific partnership from all sorts of things like this now after is under review now as well i mean what could be next and i want to add also syria we've showed really pulled back substantially on syria and that's a tough case too because we've spent time and energy and blood and treasure in syria and when we liberate. iraq from isis that's a huge victory for the people that live in america and now when we don't provide the stabilization assistance there we are creating a vacuum that isis might be able to fill so i'm not sure what is next necessarily but what deeply worries me is this post world war two order is beginning to unwind
3:01 am
and it was an order that was established primarily by the united states and while it benefited the world i think this administration doesn't also anderson understand exactly how it is benefited the united states and so for instance i'll give you another example the chinese are setting up a competitor to the world bank that could have profound implications for the way assistance and development is handled throughout the world you are obviously deep into election season in the united states there are all sorts of internal issues the mother investigation donald trump's next tweet or his last tweet or whatever it might be i'm just interested to know if international issues like this really raise to mention other than the fact that this is trump following through on what he said he would do. i think it's concerning to me as a former diplomat that we are ceding political influence in space i don't think it will have much impact in the twenty eighteen mid-term elections if you don't get
3:02 am
a lot of traction for u.s. support to pakistan or are. cutting off aid to the palestinians i mean if anything there's probably broader support within the trunk base for that but the most concerning elma and i'm saying it over and over and over again is this unwinding potentially of the post world war two order dave harden nice to talk to you and it's a holiday weekend there in the states so thanks for coming in for us to appreciate it thank you thank you very much and hundreds of palestinian refugees have been protesting against the decision to cut u.s. funding from protesters gathered outside the un agencies office in jordan's capital amman the kingdom hosts more than two million refugees meanwhile over the border in israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu welcomed the cuts he said maintains the refugee crisis instead of solving it let us know notably. the us has done
3:03 am
a very important things by halting the financing for the refugee agency known as an ra it's finally beginning to resolve the problem the funds must be taken and used to genuinely help rehabilitate the refugees the true number of which is much smaller than the number reported. this is a welcome change. here's what's coming up for you on this news hour a rare show of discontent as thousands rally against the russian president vladimir putin's plan to change the pension age also. and i'm sorry for sit in one of the last places you might expect to find high level showjumping right here in the gaza strip. and in sport action from the u.s. open a moment of genius from roger federer. the group al-shabaab says it is behind a car bomb attack in market issues capital mogadishu at least six people were
3:04 am
killed after the attack a detonated his car full of explosives near a government building which wasn't far from a school more from. the loud explosion was heard across the somali capital mogadishu soldiers stationed near the entrance of district headquarters tried to stop the suicide bomber. the attacker tried to enter the compound with an explosive laden car and when the security tried to stop it the car exploded killing three of the soldiers the deputy commissioner for security and politics was also injured in the attack children were among those killed and injured as a nearby school collapsed i saw bodies scattered on the ground after the explosion before the ambulances and the paramedics reached there and the whole scene was very . the roof was blown of a mosque and homes in the area were also damaged. as you can see the explosion
3:05 am
caused a lot of destruction there are mosques and islamic schools next to the district compound. by the linked hardline group of shabaab says it was behind the attack a statement says the meeting in the district office was the target al shabaab has been carrying out attacks for more than a decade that includes a deadly truck attack last year which can more than five hundred be. people the un backed government which took charge in twenty twelve has not been able to control much territory beyond look at the issue. for mali is devastated health infrastructure has struggled to deal with casualties in the past. and as the war which began in the one nine hundred ninety s. goes on somali civilians continue to suffer some of the job out of there. at least eight saudis soldiers have been killed in fighting with yemen's hooty rebels according to saudi news agencies the kingdom's military says that for the attack along the southern border activists posted videos on social media showing captured hooty fighters including what they say is
3:06 am
a high ranking commander meanwhile human rights watch wants an end to all weapons sales to saudi arabia following the bombing of a school bus in yemen last month the rights group called the attack an apparent war crime on saturday in a rare admission the saudi amorality coalition said the airstrike that killed forty children inside that was a mistake more from alan fischer in neighboring djibouti. human rights watch uses very strong language to condemn the saudi led coalition operation in northeast yemen at the beginning of august which killed forty children and eleven adults they say it just adds to the gruesome record of killing civilians in yemen now you remember at the time of the show you said that this was a legitimate military operation they were targeting with the leaders who they believe were in the area at the time what human rights watch is saying is that they have spoken to survivors to eyewitnesses to people who are in the area and while they can't establish if they were the leaders were there the saudis must have known that by taking the action they did they were going to kill
3:07 am
a large number of civilians because there was a school bus a market and a number of houses there so the saudis conducted their own investigation they say that the recently attack should have taken place is not because it would have killed a large number of civilians but because the leaders posed nor major threat to the saudi coalition at that point and human rights watch also see that people who are supplying weapons to either side in the conflict could be complicit in war crimes now we also know that both sides are due to sit down around the negotiating table on the sixth of september under the umbrella of the united nations the problem is both sides don't want to be in the same room together so it's going to take some effort by the united nations to at least get a process underway that could lead to something that will deliver a peace in yemen and bring an end to what is an almost four year war that syrian state media has denied there was an israeli attack on an air base near damascus on saturday night. loud
3:08 am
blasts had been heard near the immense airbase on the western outskirts of the capital state media says an electrical fault led to a blast and ammunition stepparent stephanie decker is and kentucky and into turkey syria border. the first you know the first thought and the first for a lot of people certainty is that israel would have been behind this it's not the first time that israel has struck this military base and outskirts of damascus israel's concern of course is always iran weapon shipments to iranian forces particularly hezbollah that can then threaten israel security israel never comments on these strikes however they do admit that yes they do target these kinds of weapons shipments or weapons storage is syrian state television quoting military sources saying it wasn't israel it was an electrical fault but there is a lot of skepticism about that there's other syrian military sources being quoted saying that israel was behind it the syrian observatory which monitors the war
3:09 am
saying that israel was behind the work will tease we do know there were reports of ambulances racing to the scene last night multiple explosions so again these things are very difficult to confirm independently always of course a lot of skepticism when it comes to a particular attack like this or an explosion in a weapons depot in a very important military base whether that was a form of an electrical hook up or whether that was israel targeted we won't be able to confirm but certain a lot of skepticism about that denial from syrian state television protesters in iraq's southern city of bouncer have been out again demanding jobs and better services they gathered outside an oil field complaining opportunities are often given to foreigners demonstrators also blocked a highway in the northern part of the city there have been similar protests to this going on since march. china is expected to put up billions more in aid and investment for african countries at a summit in beijing on monday president xi jinping has been welcoming fifty two

the crackdown on freedom of speech in russia had there been more protests against unpopular pension changes the communist party organized rallies across the country because the government wants to increase the retirement age from sixty to sixty five for men and from fifty five to sixty four women president vladimir putin has made some concessions to the original plans but those have failed to quell people's anger we heard from an abortion who is a fellow at the washington institute focusing on russia's foreign and domestic policy she told us putin's government didn't expect such a public outcry. the way the government announced these reforms was at the time when russia was still hosting the world cup sort of hoping that the public wouldn't notice trying to trying to soften the blow up so to speak but more importantly the larger issue here is that these reforms demonstrate russia's economic decline of
3:25 am
the government's inability. to handle development because russia has a system that is not geared towards development of the country rather it's a system built on loyalty to the kremlin where those that are close to the kremlin get rewarded. and that you know there are such things as for example the government had stopped contributing to the pension fund to finance the crimea and excision. the witnesses so it's prioritizing political motives funding foreign adventures over a domestic development you know timidly never took responsibility when he made these concessions rather he sort of presented himself as this fatherly figure that is stepping in at the last minute a new u.s. army general is taking of a come out of nato forces in afghanistan general scott miller was sworn into the job in kabul nato in the afghan army under pressure to get on top of a resurgent taliban ahead of the elections next month the world recognizes that afghanistan cannot be

3:30 am
long before they arrived here it's estimated that upwards of sixty percent of the or hindu are illiterate when you hear how these boys were often barred by soldiers from attending school in myanmar as rak kind state it's easy to understand why. and at it when we were on our way to class the army used to stop us and ask where are you going we said we were going to school they'd ask us what are you doing go to school unicef simon ingram explains how dire the situation has become so over the past year we've had something like three hundred eighty thousand school age children arriving here from across the border so trying to get them into some kind of learning activities gives them some sort of shape to their lives give them some sort of hope for in terms of learning and their education for the future that has had to be one of our biggest priorities while aid workers are cautiously optimistic that consultations with the government of bangladesh will result in

3:32 am
hundred it was tough to navigate the waters because there are so many mystery it's over two hundred twenty thousand acres so this is a project that is native to new york's history. this site in brooklyn is one of eleven where the project is attempting to recreate reefs with shells collected from local restaurants and baby oysters some from farms on the east coast others grown at a local school with the help of students by nineteen zero six new yorkers had every last oyster their reefs had been dredged up or covered in silt and the water quality was too poor for their regeneration it stayed that way until one thousand nine hundred seventy two the passage of the clean water act which prohibited dumping sewage and waste into the harbor even now the waters aren't clean enough to eat what lives there but he always to reach have huge benefits for the local ecosystem. i have a little super hero very tiny but they pack a punch and they really they provide such habitat for in the biodiversity of new york harbor nicholas jacobson helped make the metal cages that create the reefs and
3:33 am
volunteered to help place them in the water the oysters slide in like a file cabinet so in the city there's not many options to really connect with nature it's mostly concrete and steel. but this really gives an opportunity within the city to kind of connect with nature and. i guess just give back to the environment because we do take a lot and when it comes to the health of new york's waterways cultivating that connection may be just as important as cultivating oysters christian salumi al-jazeera brooklyn new york. daredevils have hold fireballs at each other as part of a unique festival in el salvador every year people in a town near the capital so rags in petrol set them alight and throw them why wouldn't you it's to commemorate a seventeenth century volcanic eruption that's why some believe the five all symbolize a christian saints fight with the devil.
