this is your. analogy. this is al jazeera. hello i'm adrian for the good and this is the new life from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes more children among the dead in yemen's war as the saudi led coalition intensifies airstrikes against the rebels. a battering for hong kong this typhoon course pushes the city to its highest alert. the death toll expected to rise and many lives to rebuild in the philippines after the typhoon wrecks homes and leaves many towns cut off. and why malaysia is attempting to revive the language spoken fluently by only three thousand people. and i'll have all the.

faith and one of the most highly anticipated fights of the canal alvarez the man known as beth pound for pound fighter. to become middleweight champion of the wild . fighting has intensified in the yemeni province of her data who the rebels are reporting at least thirty five saudi m.r.c. coalition air strikes since early sunday morning they've been targeting the highway donors chios sixteen which runs east out of the red sea port it's one of the main supply routes to the capital sanaa which is held by the rebels at least two children were killed and five others injured by a strike inside a province which is also on the hooty control. the victims and their families fled
1:02 pm
the village on the border with saudi arabia u.a.e. saudi state media posted this aerial video dismissing claims that they targeted the world food program in who data they accuse the hooty s. of setting the world food stores on fire last friday let's go live now to djibouti just across the red sea al-jazeera is andrew symonds is that for us so andrew it looks as the battle for her data is intensifying tell us more about these air strikes on sunday morning. well i look at the total of thirty five s strikes in a matter of hours on sunday morning that number is bound to have increased considerably from the reports we're getting none of this can be fully verified on the ground because there are no neutral observers media observers on location so what we have is this a radio station that was targeted these claim that a total of four civilians were killed that is disputed immediately by the saudi
1:03 pm
u.n. a led coalition which is. escalating its attacks it says that this was in fact to come on the installation for the who's the rebels and therefore a military targets so whether or not they were civilians who were killed remains somewhat unclear there is also a suggestion that more attacks it's taking place around a whole variety of locations in who data but centrally it's key those sixteen the main supply routes between the red sea for the city of data and the capital the rebel held capital but the damage being done and the loss of lives does appear to be increasing there is a commitment it seems very much so on the part of the coalition to really try to take data whether that means actually take it which would be would mean numerous lots of civilian deaths undoubtedly all besiege it totally it's almost under siege
1:04 pm
already according to some unconfirmed reports but right now the escalation is there for all to see no matter which side you might be listening to and of course this makes you wonder about the that the fate of. the vulnerable people who are trapped in these areas that are coming under attack what's happening with the u.n. attempts to try to get a dialogue between the two sides. well let me answer the first part of your question first adrian the situation away from the battlefield isn't disputed the situation in just the not far away in fact is one hundred kilometers but not far away in yemeni terms in an area called. there are people actually eating vine leaves in order to survive now this is an acknowledged way of trying to keep going in rural parts and this is now led to a situation where malnutrition is increasing all the time there is
1:05 pm
a desperate situation we've seen images of babies that are really on the edge of death who have been trying to doctors and nurses are trying to revive them and trying to give them the medication and the therapy they need but they're not always successful because they get too late to the hospitals and so really what we're seeing now is really two levels of suffering the fighting and the injuries and deaths that that leads to with civilians and then bigger perhaps but in fact certainly according to some reports bigger is the need for food and the right sort of medication and therapy for young people the vulnerable in areas like many of them while the fighting goes on as far as a danger is concerned the second part of your question it is now key not only key on the battlefield but also key to the talks because what we're hearing now is that the un he is mounting
1:06 pm
a big diplomatic offensive to suggest that they have to take and i say take reservedly whether that's a siege or whether it's a total invasion of the city where they have to take the coalition the coalition has to take that city in order to force the these to the negotiation table that is the line being taken by the coalition now the who thing is have met the un in a major meeting of the delegation that was meant to go to geneva more than a week ago. and the result of that was a memorandum of understanding with the least ground who is the top u.n. official in yemen and she signed on the dotted line to a deal which meant we don't have the precise detail confirmed by the un yet that meant according to reports that injured people whether they're civilians or fighters we're not sure yet will be transported by reportedly now to cairo egypt not as some people thought earlier so this is
1:07 pm
a methodology perhaps to try to get a breakthrough under way but a week is a long time on the battlefield and advances made by the coalition they may now want to stick to their plan to take a day to all seal it off in their will to be a better position on the negotiating table that is pure speculation but that is military logic as well and then you have a situation where the who thing is appear now to be less resistant here to this business and to having talks what is the truth is unclear but one thing is certain this is escalating beyond all proportions that were originally imagined and are many things anderson it's that live in djibouti. the storm that's already left twenty five dead in the philippines is now threatening hong kong with huge waves the city is in complete shutdown with the highest level in place of typhoon signal number ten for only the fourth time in twenty years typhoon man could has blown
1:08 pm
down cranes and shattered windows in high rise buildings across the city many main roads have been blocked by trees felled by winds of up to two hundred kilometers an hour but the storm is slowly leaving the territory and heading towards the southern province of guangdong al-jazeera sara clark joins us now live from hong kong sara what's the situation there now. well as you mentioned the worst of it has now. we still have a t ten in place which as we've discussed before is the most powerful signal on the right so we're still feeling strong winds there's still storm surges across the harbor and offshore and now i think people are starting to emerge to have looked at the destruction that this typhoon has caused today we were prepared we were told to prepare for the worst however this has taken many people by surprise we've seen. windows blown out in huge residential and commercial buildings we've seen massive
1:09 pm
flooding intensive flooding in hotels waterfront hotels and low lying areas in the new territories so as you can see and as you can hear it's been quite an extraordinary typhoon and certainly one that no one expected to be as damaging as it has been so the worst of that the winds have passed what about the storm surge is that we're expecting. the storm surges have possibly some may just swells across the harbor which i can see in front of us the winds have weakened however having said that we're still getting big bursts of strong winds which is still causing damage so i expect the tea table study in place for tonight or for a few more hours at least as you mentioned before it has left it on its why hurtling towards my land china so they'll certainly be hoping that it weakens by the time it does hit the mainland but having said that they'll be looking to see what the experience was here in hong kong today which has been extraordinary
1:10 pm
powerful ceremony thanks to dodge their circle up their lives in hong kong in the philippines at least twenty five people were killed by the same weather system typhoon month we could slightly made landfall on the largest island of luzon in the early hours of saturday it's left though a trail of destruction in the northern province of. al jazeera. is that. typhoon monk arrived just as predicted vicious with its force pounding over most of northern luzon the early hours saw power and phone lines cut off in the ghetto city in calgary and province incessant rains and strong winds crippled many of the operations planned by emergency teams. but the destruction here is nothing compared to what we saw when we ventured out of the city. through out to rural communities we saw homes and farmland destroyed access into these remote
1:11 pm
areas is difficult which means eight may be slow to arrive to. like so many places here the town of bugout bore the brunt of the typhoon spirit marine commanders say many people here lost their homes. property and with crops in the power lines so we expect that be. over soon people here tell us they were aware of the forced evacuation order by the government but following it is easier said than done that is because often their homes and their livelihoods are just in one place and this is all what they've got these are their lives possessions they went through something similar already two years ago a super typhoon hit their community and they've barely recovered. julio salah says her small cafeteria was your only means to support your family now it's gone and
1:12 pm
that's it it really hurts us we don't know where it's back and everything happened so fast and now my business is gone the destruction is similar all across luzon the largest island in the philippines the majority of typhoon victims are from small farming communities the impact has yet to be fully assessed and the cost counted. the philippine government says efforts to help are well and do we but from past experience filipinos know it's never enough they barely had much space for the time feeling now they have even less. similarly dug an al-jazeera book out today in a province north of the divisions let's get more on the science behind these storms and where this one is headed next meteorologist kevin corriveau is with us once again kevin that's right we have a land fall with the storm with men could and is still in fall just about forty
1:13 pm
kilometers to the west of macau take a look at the satellite image from the hong kong observatory you can see where the storm the center center of circulation just over there towards the western part of macau now i want to show you the bigger picture because i want to show you how large this system is to begin with to show that image right now of the large image of the storm there it is right there this is when it just left the philippines notice to the north we had rain all the way up towards taiwan and to the south into the central parts of the philippines put this into motion and you can see why we are so concerned because as the system makes landfall yes it is going to weaken considerably but we are going to see quite a bit of heavy rain as it makes its way towards the west right now one hundred fifty seven kilometers per hour winds gusting to one ninety four it is moving quite quickly about to the northwest at thirty three kilometers per hour now this is going to be the track of the storm over the next few days weakening down to about a tropical storm intensity but really anything along that path or north of that
1:14 pm
path is where we're going to be seeing the stronger winds as well as the heavy rain over the next few days and speaking of heavy rain this is what we do expect to see as that system makes its way over here towards the northern part of vietnam the bull's eye where you see just to the west of hong kong there we could see another two hundred millimeters plus of rain and then as it makes its way towards the northwest we are going to be seeing still some very heavy rain show. across that region so we'll be watching this very carefully to the threat now is going to be flooding and mudslides and landslides anywhere along that path of the storm as for the philippines as a system pulls away things there will get better the storm surge will better along that western seaboard as well as in hong kong the winds will begin to die down as well the rain will start to ease up but as those feeder bands pull away we could still see the occasional heavy rain showers across hong kong traffic air traffic probably will be coming back for probably the next twenty four hours there. kevin

parts of syria in the first local election since twenty eleven state television showed voters casting their ballots in damascus and other mostly coastal areas the government says that more than forty thousand candidates are running for almost eighteen and a half thousand seats for the first time the syrian government is promoting decentralization newly elected members will be expected to have more responsibility particularly in areas like reconstruction and urban development syrian troops now control around two thirds of the country after scoring a series of military victories over recent months including around damascus and in the country's south wasn't is a syrian government's expert and research of the london school of economics and political science he joins us now live from gaziantep in turkey near the syria border good to have you with us. first of all who's standing in this in these local council elections what political entities to they represent and secondly who's who's voting with so many internally displaced people and and people who fled syria
1:22 pm
all together who's going to vote in these elections. ok so in order to to turns that question we need to understand the regimes reasons of holding such elections right now i think the regime has two main reasons for doing so politically under just a good reason for politically the regime is trying to send this this elections are an integral part of the regime's propaganda and saying that syria now is heading towards a recovery the communities healing. the damascus government is that a functional government and we're heading toward a poor earth but a place which is obviously not true i mean these elections have lifted the lathe the lead off the obvious inability for the regime to run the country the second reason is a risk a reason the after of the regime has militarily regained a vast territory as after the forced displacement agreements in the east and water
1:23 pm
boarded our homes etc there is trying to increase its limited presence in these areas and also is trying to. to to to hijack the service provisions. in these areas by appointing a local council members now who's running for these elections well. for for the past fifty years i mean the. old bath lead's national progressive france. and there are their parties are the ones who was always winning these elections and these elections the current ones are are not an exception so now we have something called the national unity lists which mainly consists of members of the of this national progressive france and usually it's sixty percent bathurst members and forty percent for the rest of the. parties but in these
1:24 pm
elections surprisingly enough. we haven't acim in a lot of areas we have. ninety to ninety five percent of these candidates are bathurst so are part of their birth party we've seen this lists in that a you know we've seen this in suede or and in other areas so i'll bath has dominated again all of most of the the electoral lists also the state media is saying that these national unity lists is the leadership preference so they're saying in a way. if you don't vote for this list if you don't vote for these candidates you're kind of acting against the will of the leadership bashar lessard so that's usually that's more of the candidates of course we still have some independent candidates outside of these lists but these candidates are just a facade or just cosmetic surgeries and so you can hardly describe these elections
1:25 pm
as free or or fair and who's going to vote for these candidates who are the internally displaced people within syria allowed to vote. oh well actually you know they're nuts and that's according to the law i mean the law prohibits them from from voting and let me spend this the sadia so the general election law in syria are what's called the law number five for two thousand and fourteen it's the right to vote for local elections are based on something called the electoral look ality which means that you can only vote physically in the place when you were born or in the place that you have. so if you're a from born real living for in damascus for thirty years you cannot vote for the misspell of the mask is you have to physically cast your ballot in a liberal in order to to be able to participate in these elections so these these
1:26 pm
the law hasn't changed so in a way that we have now six million more than six million i.d.p.'s they don't have the right to vaults. unless the kents physically cast their ballots in their areas and we all know that's that's the sub possible for a lot of areas there's no safe ways to reach into areas in order to put speed in this process so all of the most of these six million i had these are not allowed to vote forward based on this the syrian law of elections also prohibits absentee voting or voting by proxy so all four local elections also refugees or people living outside of the syrian borders also going to vote so we're saying we we are we're facing a very strange elections when half of the people they cannot participate freely in these elections so who's voting morse of the people voiding who are living in their areas right now but they cannot avoid for the municipality s. in their original homes must go to turkey many thanks indeed it mustn't go. the

1:36 pm
still speaks the language of her ancestors malaccan creole portuguese derived from the portuguese with words borat from other languages and a grammatical structure similar to the mill a language all here to do was in year zero two of the second it's also known by its colloquial name poppea christan but it's in decline spoken mainly by the older generation so seeing host art and using social media to pass on her knowledge when i was a model for work with the people of various forms in the same yonder. was then war crime bomb young soldiers good morning how are you so giving. yourself courage to carry your new window to lend a simple few words into something. her brother michael wrote a book together with other language experts to help people learn christan. formal
1:37 pm
instructions are rare it isn't taught in schools and exists mostly in oral form we have survived for many years we've got our culture yelling breach religion and our and identity and saw we cannot lose in your with elements. like many other malaysians of portuguese descent the singers have their roots in this neighborhood in malacca this is the portuguese settlement home to about one thousand eight hundred people descended from the portuguese academics say the community here has provided a haven for the language the children grow up hearing it being spoken if not at home then maybe at a neighbor's house. on weekends children come for classes at cerro santa maria as house was herself and brought up in the portuguese settlement . she teaches dance and cooking too with instructions in popular christan to preserve not just the language but other
1:38 pm
aspects of her culture the language is also caught the attention of academics we've got to think beyond we go to think about the perhaps they can omit value but done by the people who write the community can find ways to share their knowledge their language their own perspectives just doris' i think a very important. the older generation of malaccan portuguese are counting on the younger generation to keep the language alive florence li al-jazeera. malaysia. very briefly in that report stephanie play who is the dean of the faculty of languages and linguistics at the university of the land she joins us now by from london stephanie good to have you with us why is it so important to preserve this minority language. like any other language. and language is so much tied into our identity and who we are and in the case of malacca. being it being such
1:39 pm
a minority community and we consider it as you know in the racial categories of malaysia so the language is very much an important part of the identity of the people as we were hearing and that carries going down. even before it before i go and i'd just like to correct you i'm no longer the dean of the faculty of languages and sticks ok don't worry the world will correct that it just about me but make it look like it's not written down this language there are no books it's not taught in schools so how do you go about preserving a language like this ok it's actually written down i mean people used to write it even even in. one thousand nine hundred but everyone spelt it the way they liked so we've been me together with some of the community members that michael singh has sarah santa maria we've been working together to produce materials on the language and even before us people have produced materials in the language so there are
1:40 pm
there is you know there are lots of materials on the language but it's probably not systematically done and we are trying to systemize it by having we produced a book where it's like a learning book like a textbook to learn like a party so that was the first kind of major initiative and sarah uses the book to teach the children in the settlement ok it's a creole is made it's got about ninety percent of its vocabulary comes from from from not modern day portuguese but old portuguese yeah so. why if it's so similar as a portuguese white why does it need to be preserved. because i mean this is this is somebody is language isn't it i mean it's it's not a matter whether it's portuguese or english or whatever but it is someone's language it's not even all parties by the time it came to me it would have already been. of form of mixed portuguese because the parties were coming in from from africa from south america africa india from from india before it actually came to
1:41 pm
market in malaysia so you know some people say it's an old form of portuguese it's got traces of that all portuguese but it's all it was already a kind of pidgin pretty nice language when it came to malacca so why is that important because this point is it seems so cut off right when malaysia and you have the all portuguese but this is the people who speak the language are descendants of a hybrid community when the portuguese came and they married local women so this is a community who who still retain this language and everywhere else in asia it's disappeared or disappearing and we're almost like the last bastion of it and it's important because it's where they are. already a multi lingual country so. what are the the other languages that are that are competing for attention what's the biggest threat to been accomplished. ok from
1:42 pm
