1:00 pm
business updates brought to you by qatar airways going places together. this is. a law and has a secret this is the news hour live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes the international court of justice says the u.s. should lift sanctions on iran that affect humanitarian aid and civil aviation. as a cleanup gets underway in indonesia harrowing tales of survival. is an end in sight to iraq's months of long political uncertainty there's finally a prime minister. hoping to convince her party she's got her legs it planned right
1:01 pm
u.k. prime minister to resign may prepares for a crucial conference speech. alone we begin this news hour with a ruling from the un's top court saying the u.s. should lift its sanctions on humanitarian goods to iran the decision by the international court of justice in the netherlands is a victory for iran which had pursued the case the u.s. is penalizing companies trading with iran after it re imposed sanctions earlier this year the united states says the i.c.j. has no jurisdiction in the matter drew from the twenty fifteen iran nuclear deal this year as a mistrial he joins us live now from the iranian capital tehran so zain what does this mean for iran from a practical standpoint and is it is it what they were looking for.
1:02 pm
well it's definitely a dramatic decision it's not exactly what iran was looking for iran was hoping that this would this case it's basically an appeal to temporarily remove sanctions while the court considers iran's lawsuit against the united states to her for having brought sanctions against it in the first place and this is all related to the united states pulling out of the twenty fifty nuclear deal earlier this year now what it means for iran practically on the ground. the cynic the realistic will tell you actually nothing because not only does the international court of justice have no policing mechanism the united states pulled out of the volunteer system of the i.c.j. in one thousand nine hundred six overruling the i.c.j. made against the united states regarding war reparations for nicaragua so really in terms of practical impact it has no likely effect but it is sort of symbolic and moral victory for the iranian side on an international stage once again gives iran
1:03 pm
the opportunity to illustrate the fact that every opportunity that the americans have to respect and international institution with the united states taking the opposite decision now let me walk you through sort of exactly what the court ruling means the united states would have wanted to thrown out any case that iran has brought against the united states with regards to nine hundred fifty five french a treaty based on that the court hasn't recognized in the past that didn't happen so it's not exactly what the americans wanted it doesn't involve the temporary lifting of all sanctions either so it's not exactly what the iranians wanted what the court ruling does say is that the u.s. must remove by any means of its own choosing any impediment to the free exportation of goods regarding humanitarian concerns that includes medicine and medical equipment for lifesaving needs it involves the food and agriculture stuff and it also refers to parts replacement parts as well as equipment for civil aviation as well as services for civil aviation and with regards to aviation specifically the course said that the united states must remove any banking transfer or any
1:04 pm
impediment. or punishment for people that move money around to help make that possible but again even though this is a very positive ruling for iran the i.c.j. has no police or no army to carry out its orders it has no effective way to actually implement these sanctions and the united states has said over and over again it does not only not recognize the authority of this court but that anything that is doing against iran is a national security matter and that's america's business so while it is certainly another moral victory practically on the ground it represents almost nothing so while this is seen as as a kind of moral victory as you say symbolic victory for iran how does this help their overall efforts to maintain. trading relations with those western powers that have said that they will continue to commit to the nuclear deal with iran and for iran not to be. put out in the cold as it were.
1:05 pm
absolutely since the united states has been talking about pulling out of the deal and since it has pulled out of the of the deal iran has done a few different things simultaneously this is one of the prongs of a sort of public relations push to try to internationalize its problem with regards to the nuclear deal and internationalize its fight with the united states over the nuclear deal you know we've seen at the u.n. g.a. just a week ago iran and its and the remaining signatories to the twenty fifteen nuclear deal the joint comprehensive plan of action announce a mechanism to try to get around american banking sanctions to help iran continue to participate in the global marketplace through a bypass method so that's one of the one of the practical steps they've taken but really this is all about making sure that on the international stage when you're looking at the footnotes of history that iran is seen as the actor that appealed to all international partners that sort of had a broad based view of how to deal with its problems on the international stage and this is all part of iran trying to further isolate the united states that is the united states care about being isolated or not well under the. presidency of the
1:06 pm
american president donald trump it seems that that's really not an issue for his administration but nonetheless iran is looking at the long view and hoping that once the trumpet ministration is over that it will be in a position to be a stronger player on the international stage backed up by its partners to once again talk to the united states on matters related to the nuclear deal or otherwise zain thanks for that. now to our other top story indonesia has put out a plea for more body bags as fear of disease adds to the worries of people on the island of sort of more than four days after an earthquake and tsunami authorities say scores of uncounted people are likely to still be buried in collapsed buildings the death toll has now reached one thousand four hundred and seven aid supplies are starting to trickle out around the island of the indonesian military has taken over
1:07 pm
control of a power city's airport to wayne hey is there for so wayne. you're there at the at the scene right now what is the how are they dealing with. the the operations of the airport is it is a fully operational now. well it's certainly become one of the if not the busiest place in town in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake it was a fairly chaotic place actually because a lot of people rushed here to try to get their hands on any aid that may be arriving into the airport parts of the terminal building were looted and that certainly needed the security forces the military to step in and take over to maintain control if they were to mount any serious sort of search and rescue and recovery operation in the affected areas and that's certainly what that done setting up something of a command center here to allow the flights to resume mainly humanitarian at the
1:08 pm
moment we're seeing some commercial activity but mainly it is indonesian air force planes coming and going to be able enable them to bring in aid and to take people out of there and that's one of the main jobs is to get the thousands of people who are coming to the airport out of the affected areas out of danger and off to safety . there is an exodus taking place from central sulawesi thousands are leaving the quake can see. nami ravaged communities boarding military planes from palu all with traumatic memories oh. it was so crazy i wasn't conscious for a long time because the ceiling fell on me. the airport was severely damaged in the quake and inoperable for a time but the military has taken over allowing the indonesian air force to come and go aboard one plane was the president who made his second visit to the disaster areas this time his first stop was just outside the cracks terminal building where
1:09 pm
hospital ward has been set up with the sick and injured wait to be a lifted just tell us what the priority is the more intense the recovery of course to that is if the after that they have they shown an. action. among the patients. who gave birth three days before the quake she and her family lost their home and walked for four days to get help now they have no choice but to leave. everybody was running from the houses when the quake happened my home is completely destroyed and we had to sleep on the street. for now the remains of the airport offer some comfort that one chapter of their ordeal is drawing to a close for those who choose to stay help is gradually arriving at least to the airport as well as getting people out of here the military planes have been bringing in but getting it from the airport to the communities the people that need
1:10 pm
it most seems to be a slow process. much sits at the airport awaiting distribution but for an increasing number of people the wait for a place on a flight to safety is over as they leave they perhaps contemplate an even longer wait before they'll be able to return home and when we understand the indonesian president has been speaking what do we have to say. yes he has been here for much of the day actually this was as you just heard his second visit to the affected areas and he left from the airport back to heading back to the capital jakarta just a few moments ago before he left he did make some comments speaking to some of his fellow members of government who were here as well he said that the handling of survivors has been good he says that managed to get most of the injured people out of the affected areas out of through this airport and down to the southern city of
1:11 pm
still on the island of. he says logistically though they still need improvement he said there are some areas that still connect cannot be accessed because the roads are damaged but he's made some orders that those difficulties should be overcome as soon as possible has and one of the areas he went to was dong which is to the north of here very close to the epicenter of the earthquake there has been much concern for the population there which numbers almost three hundred thousand because communication and access to that area has been largely cut off since the quake and tsunami on friday some of the communication has been restored now but many areas still have not seen any aid any medical supplies any food any water so they're crying out for help and they're saying they're basically being treated like second class citizens because they feel the people in power who have been getting all of the assistance and they have been missing out so the president went there today directly to talk to some of those residents and hear some of the concerns as i'm.
1:12 pm
going to a live for us there in port thanks miles. well soldiers have been placed at petrol stations now and supermarkets long lines of people have been queuing through the night for fuel and supplies in paolo on tuesday police fired tear gas and warning shots as they tried to stop people from ransacking shops distressing stories continue to emerge like that. he was able to identify his wife among the bodies scattered outside the hospital he managed to get his children to safety as the tsunami came ashore to turn back to see his wife swept away by the waves but took our correspondent andrew thomas several days to reach but he is there live for us now so. just tell us about what you've been seeing and hearing there.
1:13 pm
well i've now seen this city. and at night it's very different feeling in the daytime the feel is a real sense of security there are plenty of soldiers around with machine guns that guiding and dollars being the convoys that are coming in at night there is a real sense of menace and you do get warned constantly be very careful because people do want to say whatever they can because they desperately been without food and water now in some cases for five days and his wife said in his report that while the latest sitting at the airport is not yet reached even parts of the city that a lot of. people assigned there haven't had not more so they haven't had enough food they haven't seen what they need all have been so you are housing estates on wednesday it does states perhaps seventeen hundred homes in it but during the earthquake the ground's sensually liquefied the pressure on the soil was so great that it turned that soil into water or liquid anyway and the building's on top of it a collapse in on themselves it was something that i really appreciate when we got the drone up over it to film from above because when you're
1:14 pm
a ground level you can't really see where the house is wanted but when you get up above you can just see the destruction that rules right across the city buildings very very badly damaged not all of them some are still standing but many many have collapsed and the stench as you go around is in the air as we've been saying they don't really have enough body bags but we have seen plenty of bodies being carried into ambulances and being taken away it's not a pretty sizable dignified site to be honest but it is a necessary one the really being realistic there are no more living people buried under the rubble none has been found for two days now but there are still plenty of bodies to be found and we've seen as well some dramatic pictures of ships that have been pushed ashore in the tsunami that followed the way so this is a city that really does need that i that why this thing is sitting at the airport is gradually getting very far more people have made the decision to the. i'm with
1:15 pm
flying but also by land because one of the things that has come into the city in the last twenty four hours in a much bigger way than it was coming in if you will people simply didn't have the fuel to drive their vehicles out but i guess you get now on the traffic jam leaving all day on tuesday and wednesday have been quite dramatic tens of thousands of people now evacuating from the city. grim picture all around to andrew thomas in palo city thanks and. now laura and go fontayne is a senior communications officer for the international federation of the red cross and red crescent societies she's joined joins us now on skype from geneva thanks very much for being with us so where do things stand now as far as your efforts to to get aid to people where. it is so yeah we're five days into this disaster and our red cross teams are pushing hard to really affected areas we're still
1:16 pm
conducting search and rescue just this morning tragically our red cross teams came across a village called patel though it is on the border of palu and siggy it is a village that has been completely obliterated it was once home to fire one hundred people and they have just recovered fourteen bodies and they're continuing their search and rescue efforts and how what are some of the challenges that you your organization has been facing in terms of getting so much of that aid to people obviously so many roads are impassable bridges collapsed or all the rest of it how much of a challenge is all of that. it's a tremendous challenge you said it the access to these areas are is difficult we've actually tried to come up with very creative ways we've actually we've deployed three ships full of supplies and goods which should be reaching palu today with things like tents mobile kitchens mosquito nets things that people can use it
1:17 pm
as well as tragically body bags to recover the dead. and what about. assistance or aid the you've been getting from from outside. in order to to to coordinate all of this and get it to people is there but has there been enough of an international response to this. i think the international community is responding the international federation of red cross red crescent societies along with the indonesian red cross we've launched an appeal are revised an appeal for twenty two million swiss francs. now you are indonesian red cross has been on the ground since the wake of this disaster and we have three ball three hundred volunteers pushing through these affected areas bringing medical care to two villages such as in city we have a mobile. these are the most urgent needs were seeing people who are living outside
1:18 pm
with no shelter and you know most of the survivors are women and children with broken bones terrible bruises and injuries requiring requiring emergency medical assistance. talking to us lauren go fontayne joiners thank you from geneva thank you. a plenty more ahead on this news hour hoping to convince her party she's got a plan right u.k. prime minister theresa may preparing for a big conference speech. so all that still ahead but first iraq finally has a new prime minister after months of political back and forth former or minister did not have he has been asked to form a government i mean i don't reports from baghdad. i mean after all
1:19 pm
five month long delay iraq finally has a new president. of the post feel to keep union of kurdistan one two hundred twenty votes from the two hundred seventy three lawmakers houghton to tuesday's session saw how the various ports in there are big government of the of saddam hussein including as the particular minister under former prime minister nuri al maliki saleh was among twenty kind of dates for the post including one from the rival kurdistan democratic party fought the same who withdrew from the rest during the second round in the monitor what happened in the iraqi parliament today is unusual and against past agreements particularly among kurdish pacifists that's why the vote is unacceptable to us we will give the full response later and i'm on the official agreement dating back to the two thousand and three us led invasion iraq's presidency is held by a good while the prime minister's shia and the parliaments because sunni. the delay
1:20 pm
in electing a president has meant it out this would it about the state of politics in the country frustrating but but then again i mean this is this is iraq really shouldn't be surprised but i'm. optimistic in the sense that at least we are the progress seeing step by step moments after he was elected president topped off oil minister other to form the next government other is considered an independent candidate but he will have to win the support of mid to show a broken parliament to get conformed to the post of prime minister to lead blocks of a much since may elections both of which claim to have most sits in parliament and therefore their right to form a government one is led by the current prime minister hi there and it group supporters of the populous shock clitic said that who's full also want the most
1:21 pm
votes in the election now the blocking kluges put on groups that by former prime minister nuri al maliki in the fall the rumbling among the shia and other factions could further delay the process of confirming the prime minister designate mohamed on the world is either but about. a prominent saudi journalist and critic of the kingdom has gone missing in turkey the washington post says contributor shows the was last seen entering saudi arabia's consulate in istanbul to pick up paperwork the post says it doesn't know if the shows he is being detained for commentaries and criticism of crown prince mohammed bin sandman have been published by several western newspapers turkish authorities have told al-jazeera he hasn't been taken out of the country. britain's prime minister to resign may get her chance to convince her party she's on the right track with briggs it surely she's giving the
1:22 pm
closing speech to the conservative party conference on tuesday her former foreign secretary boris johnson laid down a challenge the government to in his words chuck briggs a plan don't be fooled by the suggestion that the e.u. will ultimately reject these proposals for this what they want above all is to demonstrate to any other country that might dream of following suit that you cannot leave the e.u. without suffering adverse political and economic consequences and what the check was propose. is that the united kingdom for all its power and might and lit work with influences around the world for all its venerable parliamentary history was unable ultimately to take back control jonathan lists is deputy director of british influence
1:23 pm
a political think tank he joins us now from london thanks very much for being with us so what are you expecting to hear from the british prime minister theresa may and what does she need to say. in the world those two things are quite different on a very what i'm expecting it to say is to double down on that strategy to appeal to the right wing tory base to say how much of a success breakthrough will be and bush really none of those things are going to help her in the long run because what she really sweet is how she's going to concede and when. so what what would you think she should say then. what's well she should be saying she should be saying that britain has to abandon its red lines because at the moment britain is heading for an ideal scenario because the all the options she keeps ruling out she rules out of the irish sea she rules out a single market she rules out a customs union and those are things that she needs to be letting in the equation
1:24 pm
not ruling out so the moment she has to capitulate to the e.u. the question is when she does it and how damaging that will be but as it stands she has no leg to stand on she has no power so where does this leave all the divisions over briggs it then they essentially unchanged well in the conservative party each still have the the remaining is who are prepared to accept the check his proposal and the heartbreaks to do want check is to go like boris johnson saying minutes go the problem for treason is the check is unacceptable to the e.u. and they told her that a very very bluntly and publicly just before the conference so she really is starting this speech from the worst possible position because the e.u. saying the only route is dead and therefore she has to concede all sides that party are going to post whatever she does but if we look at those in her party who are the kind of the heart breaks to tears like. like boris johnson who are many have
1:25 pm
said that you know we can we can just leave the e.u. with no no deal and or not the whole no deal is better than a than a bad deal but are there are there even the votes in parliament so that they're really you know very suitable for that and there are plenty of. remain as on the tory party you haven't rebelled so far you said in the open that they will be prepared to rebel to stop and no deal breaks it so here's the thing if theresa may was to be replaced with boris johnson tomorrow it wouldn't change a parliamentary committee tool because there is still no majority for no deal in parliament. so are we heading towards some sort of a fudge then in terms of getting getting a deal with the e.u. . well that's what a lot of people say that they'll be a so-called blindfold breaks it well they'll just have a deal in the leave the future declaration for negotiations the problem with that is that the irish backstop as e.u.
1:26 pm
diplomats insist is on fudge it will and that means that teresa mayes going to have to make solid commitments about the possibility of a customs union or single market or both in order to cecile that withdrawal agreements because there can be no withdrawal agreements without the irish backstop and that's particularly significant because the conservative party has those northern ireland m.p.'s who are essentially propping up her government at least in parliament that's right so that's makes this is what makes it even trickier because ordinarily she might be able to accept a so-called de dramatise irish sea border where there are certain regulations regulatory checks and customs tax between great britain and northern ireland but the d.d.p. the hardiness in northern ireland a propping up a government and they say there are so you know difference between northern ireland great britain would be permissable and therefore she really has no right to go but we're effectively paying a game of chicken now or the d.p. prepared to bring her down and risk a jeremy corbin labor government which they'll hate for many reasons so we're
1:27 pm
interested very interesting period of british politics now where there's the two sides face off against each other and raise the stakes certainly is and we will be bringing that speech from the british prime minister theresa may live as and when it does happen and for the moment. jonathan the least good to speak. thanks very much now in a few moments we'll have the weather with rob but still ahead on al-jazeera. as you just heard there u.k. prime minister theresa may getting ready to address our party will be bringing to you live. from kuwait brisk knows in few weeks. to the warm tranquil waters of southeast asia. this is a welcome sight to the farmers of australia clive's streaming from west to east in the usually cloud this means rain and give the september was the driest year since
1:28 pm
not just months since one thousand nine hundred two yeah one hundred sixteen years ago any rain is going to be good of course the consequence of having dr affectively in new south wales an official drives to and nearing the route. long is you get this sort of thing every time a front comes across it looks like a haboob it effectively it is a small how big a thunderstorm would do this frontal system this is in new south wales just over the border from south australia and it's the red dust in the air so a welcome sight the forecast then brings rain to new south wales but also to western australia this is true for the next two days they sink that ten to fifteen minute bit of pocket so could get one hundred fifty millimeters god really doesn't welcome whereas and will stay on the same line of longer shoot the rain coming from this thing will not be quite so welcome yet another target food no longer a super typhoon but typhoon kong ray is due to head up slightly west of the last.
1:29 pm

more than four days after the earthquake and tsunami the official death toll now stands at one thousand four hundred seven. politician. maddi has been chosen as iraq's prime minister he was picked by the newly elected president kurdish politician but one sally it's hope this will end months of political deadlock after a disputed elections in may. now the level of poverty in parts of brazil has left some potential voters in sunday's election easy prey for politicians looking to buy votes extreme poverty and unemployment rates are rising and not being able to read and write is a big issue you see in human reports from the state of us. sixty five year old mother. can't read or write or even sign her name but what she does know is how to work. i started working in tobacco fields when i was nine my
1:32 pm
father had died and my mother couldn't make ends meet. the story is repeated in the nearby sugar fields generation after generation men work under the merciless sun of northeastern state. i started when i was stand i'm forty four now i couldn't find any better job my father did decide we never went to school but my son does. i hope he will be able to get a better job because this is no way to live. in northeastern brazil is heavily populated which makes it a magnet for politicians seeking election help in this slum there's no sewerage running water or other basic services sixty percent of the people here are not live in poverty their needs are so great and their pockets so empty that they are easy prey during election time for politicians they can come here and buy their votes
1:33 pm
for as little as ten dollars somewhere there are women with india that is a catholic deacon who works in this slum appropriately named after the virgin of the poor seventy percent of residents are illiterate. of course if i'm a politician and i give culture an education to people i'm in pairing them and if i'm in pairing them they may not vote for me so that's why it's in their interest to keep things as they are because then they can just keep coming back here at election time with empty promises that people grasp onto in the northeast as in the rest of brazil blacks and mixed race are the most disenfranchised. it's a vicious circle of inequality aggravated by a severe recession and governmental step. thirty that's left thirteen million brazilians unemployed and even more are living in extreme poverty with the boom this economist says a chronic structural problem is to blame i lost them we will stop long term
