12:03 am
thousand are in what's passed as a food catastrophe or close to famine level that's mostly in the conflict zones and all across yemen one point eight million children are acutely malnourished that includes nearly four hundred thousand who suffer from the most severe form of malnutrition. declaration of feminine is a technical declaration that relates to a number of indicators. and sometimes people think that affected feminism not the clarity doesn't it means that people are not suffering no there is a high level of hunger in yemen we are supporting eight million people with food in yemen and we assume that if you meditate in the situation does not improve will be supporting fourteen million people next year and there is indeed how you get in yemen that is extremely worrying the question of calling it feminism as i said
12:04 am
a strictly technical seemed related to a number of primitive but emitters but the effect that was not declared does not in any way. diminish is a huge concern with the very high level of hunger that exists in in yemen with the number of people dying in very dramatic circumstances and with effect death to be adults because we will be facing in two thousand and nineteen much worse situation than today. turkey's foreign minister is accused many european countries of turning a blind eye to the matter of jamal khashoggi speaking at the doha for a magnet chaffetz said the freedom of the press was at stake after the brutal murder of the saudi journalist in istanbul in october and u.n.
12:05 am
chief antonio terrace also said there needs to be a credible investigation seen holder as the latest. it's been almost three months since she was killed inside the saudi consulate in istanbul turkey continues to accuse saudi arabia of trying to cover up the crime because of its lack of transparency in the investigation turkey is also frustrated with what it sees as an action on the part of the west many european countries who are promoting the freedom of media for freedom of expression are closing their eyes and this country and the politicians you know you see this statement putting some sanctions on the people who are already in prison who will never be visiting dos countries calls are now growing louder for an international investigation what we have said since the beginning is it's absolutely essential to have a credible investigation and to the punishment of those that were killed turkey has
12:06 am
recently said there are discussions about opening an international investigation because a lack of cooperation from saudi arabia is blocking progress present are the one doesn't know that that does not that he can't do this alone he does need the backing up and the full force of the international arena we do see the west trying not to be in wild with this but as we see that we also see president are the one pushing this i'm not letting it go so she's killing sparked international outrage and condemnation but there has been little action against saudi arabia a un investigation would according to experts put more pressure on riyadh but there needs to be international political will the findings of this mission is not binding for both parties so this the shortcoming of this very winding missions are . they need a higher level of cooperation this has this. existed when it
12:07 am
comes to the international commission want to enter to myanmar that has been established by the united. human rights commission in myanmar government has refused to enter the country for the investigators a position saudi arabia is likely to take it insists it will handle the case on its soil turkish officials are growing impatient with what they describe as a lack of seriousness on the part of saudi authorities even president reza tell you border guard has been more outspoken he used to ovoid mentioning muhammad bin so man by name he has now criticized the saudi crown prince's explanation on a killing and accuse those who took an active part in the murder of being his closest aides turkey is not softening its stance but it continues to tread carefully to maintain ties with saudi arabia but pursuing an international investigation would hurt that relationship and for their al-jazeera istanbul well
12:08 am
the doha forum turkey's foreign minister was also challenged on his country's handling of the khashoggi case and its own record on press freedom after a crackdown on the media which has seen many journalists jailed many in saudi arabia and elsewhere have said that really president everyone is milking this and that it is politically motivated how do you respond to that because there is no doubt that turkey's record when it comes to freedom of the press and journalists is quite dire well turkey's coverage due to freedoms that's why after one transformed this country and the reform process in turkey has been defined as sinus revolution in turkey is the same person we are the same party same government we are committed to that but in last five years you know the trauma that we have actually face and. the challenges that we have been facing including the attempt. and some of the
12:09 am
journalists also actively in. the attempt it. well now we go to syria where a kurdish group has claimed responsibility for a car bomb attack in the northern city of affray in which killed eight people a group calling itself the wrath of all lives says it carried out the attack on a market near a pro turkey rebel state comes days after president richard time threatened to launch a new offensive into parts of northern syria controlled by u.s. backed kurdish fighters known as the white b.g. take you saying the wrath of all of this group is a branch of the y p g which it considers terrorist. well in other developments the sudanese president omar bashir has arrived in the syrian capital damascus he is the first arab leader to visit since the start of the syrian war in two thousand and eleven syrian president bashar assad said he will he was that equation at the airport as you can see the state news agency sana said the two leaders help talks
12:10 am
in the presidential palace about developments in the region and inside syria assad was quoted as saying his country would remain committed to its arab identity despite many other arab nations distancing themselves from the syrian leader since the revolution in twenty eleven the arab league suspended syria seat in response to the government's attack on pro-democracy protesters. you know at the news hour live from london much more still ahead for you this hour. you can feel approach. relief in poland after the u.n. climate talks and with agreement on a rulebook to reduce temperature rises but many are saying it doesn't go far enough . the bamboo boom rebranding hong kong's flexible friend as a building material for the environmentally conscious and installed we tell you about this fear has been dominating the slopes and it's only.
12:11 am
now to hungary where despite the cold thousands of people are still out protesting in the capital budapest this is a false demonstration this week against prime minister viktor orban and controversial new laws passed by his right wing government the new labor legislation which critics have dubbed the slave bill hikes the maximum annual overtime hours employers can demand from two hundred fifty to four hundred hours are also angry about new measures which set up administrative courts to oversee sensitive cases involving elections and public procurement rights groups say this could lead to greater government interference in justice matters many are already concerned that prime minister viktor orban is eroding the country's legal system and press freedom or a challenge now reports. for the fourth day you know protesters have been on the street to the hunger in the capital past recent rule changes that brought people out to denounce prime minister viktor right wing government does on their own voice
12:12 am
. i think that this content is growing and with fear if not only anger and frustration but also those voices which would like to make change. now you know again banishments of and again when i'm out of bashing i have had enough and so have my friends this is no not at all to positions politicians about who stands on which side but this is about that is consent of the hunger in society that we have had enough of. the rally started last wednesday following the passing of two new laws one gives the government control over a new administrative court system the other perhaps more unpopular move increases allowable workplace overtime from two hundred fifty to four hundred hours a year because of all bans majority in parliament allowed him to push through the legislation despite complaints from trade unions rights groups and opposition parties they say increasing overtime could harm workers health and the government
12:13 am
shouldn't control the courts the government says it wants a more efficient legal system and a more flexible labor code i think what these protests suggest is that ogling the current popular. scene election tom obviously will say not mean that he's. going to resemble a discordant. and. resentment comes to the fore when the government introduced. the seen by many as being against their interests the e.u. has seemed unsure how to respond to a government in one of its member states consolidating power by restricting civil liberties but in september the european parliament voted to impose sanctions on hungry for ignoring the rules on democracy civil rights and corruption the government says those claims are not true picked over and says his aim is to build and illiberal democracy in hungary any space little meaningful opposition but anger over the so-called slave law is
12:14 am
a reminder that it does still exist will challenge the general. janis benjamin novak is at the protest in budapest and joins us live via skype now thank you very much for taking the time to speak to us could you please explain what has been happening throughout the day because the press protests have been out for a number of hours now are they still out on the streets of the. they still are out on the streets of budapest in fact as you can see behind me this is the headquarters of hungary made public media. holding company and protesters have now come here to demand more media freedom there are two opposition m.p.'s inside the building as of about twenty minutes ago the information that i had they had gone in with a set of demands that they would like to read on the air and there are about two thousand protesters here it's a pretty rowdy bunch there's a lot of smoke grenades going off and the protesters are made up of opposition
12:15 am
party supporters and a lot of young people tell us more about that and we just we've got some live pitches hair all of the protest is just outside the parliament in central budapest as we can see they have braved freezing i think subzero temperatures event to continue with that demonstration tell us more about who is out tonight it's a real mixed bag you have people from the far right all the way to the left it's primarily young people so this is very this is this is very strange compared to previous protests we've had in hungary so it's a lot of young people coming from all sides of the political spectrum and they seem to have joined together in expressing their distaste in anger at the orbit regime why do you suppose the the the demographics in this protest has changed compared to the demonstrations we've seen in the pos why the young people particularly felt the need to make that the presence and the voice heard on the streets of the capital
12:16 am
one of the things we've but one of the unfortunate trends hungriest seen in the past years is a. is an exodus of young people from the country and i based on the conversations i've had with young people in this crowd several have told me that if things continue along this past path and hungry that they themselves will have to leave eventually. now we know that. protesters are not happy about workers' rights about changes to rules restricting their rights. also there seems to be a broader issue around steps taken by the government that many people feel undermines democracy in the country how might the government respond if a toll right now the government is framing these protests as a concerted action by george soros the billionaire financier in full anthropos and his henchmen they're really not addressing the very arguments that these protesters
12:17 am
are making the concerns they're coming with so right now it's being portrayed in hungary two of gary's through the very vast pro-government media empire and state media that these young people are actually henchmen of george soros who are doing george soros is bidding it hungry thank you very much benjamin benjamin about joining us there from budapest was several thousand protesters have gathered in the center of the city in anti-government protests that have gone on throughout the day and now continue into the night thank you thank you now more than five thousand far right protest as of march to the center of belgium's capital against a un pact on migration police used tear gas and water cannon to disperse them equipment was ratified by a hundred sixty four men the countries in morocco last week it aims to make migration safer and more legal but it has also been a divisive issue with some european countries worrying the deal will curb their
12:18 am
ability to shape and gratian policies. well now to georgia where the first woman president has been sworn in with a vow to reconcile political divisions similar measure a very defeated rival group say in elections last month which the opposition said were raped international observers said that been unfair use of state resources but away from the so many scuffles broke out as police blocked shots day and his supporters from entering the city of television where the integration was being held and. they've taken their way or state then they were taken away or you accuse no they are taking over freedom of movement that's what's happening it we're going back to the ninety's it's absolutely shameful. well now the services have been held in ukraine's new orthodox church which confirmed its historic split from russia on saturday. the split is seen by ukraine as vital to its security and independence but its
12:19 am
strongly opposed by moscow has been growing and the russian sentiment in ukraine since russia annexed crimea in two thousand and fourteen it grants president had made the creation of a new church a campaign issue. when almost two hundred nations managed to agree on how to fight climate change at the top twenty four summit on saturday the mood was one of euphoria but it days later the reaction is mixed with many warning that the hundred page rule book doesn't go far enough when it comes to tackling the need to cut greenhouse gas emissions around the home explains. and a great set of rolls may not sound very exciting but without them the hard fought for climate accord in paris three years ago was in danger of not being implemented at all it is so decide. every single nation one hundred ninety
12:20 am
six of them managed to six aside their differences and agree to is in poland by any measure that's a major achievement. the rulebook sits out how countries disclose their greenhouse gas emissions every nation has to do it everyone can see what the others are doing and that transparency translates into greater trust it sits out the rules by which we measure what's pumped into the atmosphere not everyone's been working by the same definitions or timeframes plus there's a system to measure the impact of a country's policies against the science the rule book also sits out of compliance make an ism to ensure everyone is doing what they say they are doing plus it offers flexibility to meet the different needs of developed and developing countries but there are problems when it comes to helping global warming the world's climate scientists agree the pledges made three years ago in paris just don't go far enough
12:21 am
. on our current greenhouse gas emissions will hit one point five degrees celsius and around twelve years and soar past three degrees by twenty one hundred the head of the un antonio good ted has championed new tougher climate pledges those were parked for another day and countries just can't seem to quit dirty energy. there was anger when the united states and poland promoted the use of coal on the sidelines of the cop twenty four gathering and global c o two emissions are up for the second year in a row. a set of rules agreed by all nations is not to be dismissed and the text sets out the way forward for countries to commit to tougher missions targets at a later date but as it stands it's just not enough to prevent irreversible damage to our planet with and decay. let's get more on the story now and speak to ventile
12:22 am
trio director of climate action network europe each going to us via skype from brussels thank you very much for taking the time to speak to us are you satisfied with the equipment that was reached in kassovitz. well that is of course goods that countries have made progress on these rule call ensuring that the promises they made inquiries are not lucid implementation is that needs to happen but that this bill allows us to do so but they've failed to recognize the urgency with the current we're going well beyond the temperature rise of three degrees and that is really going to be catastrophic so we would have hoped that the country is going to bring in a couple with replied with more. with more stronger action to the to the elements of the my disease report but that avoids the unfortunately
12:23 am
the not happened so yes we are disappointed and it sounds like you share the these fears about there being a gulf between the politics and the science because the deal doesn't reflect the crucial matter of how countries will increase their emission cussing targets to reflect the i.p.c.c. report do you think this can be addressed. well yes i think it can still be addressed but it's going to be more and more urgent as we have about twelve years to really make a change and that's not that much so we be very much welcome the u.n. secretary general and the new beginners is organizing a climate summit with lots of state and government in september of last year in new york and we really hope that countries will come to the summit prepared and we new target so that really we can start building towards more action that will bring us closer to one point five and actually avoid dangerous forms of growing but i have
12:24 am
to ask given given the political developments and the lack of change in the level of coordination that's required is one and a half degrees increasingly turning into a pipe dream i appreciate your optimism the ice i.p.c.c. report suggest time is really running out but some of argued that it's already too late to bring emissions under control and to have them. it will be very challenging in the but even if it's challenging i think we need to do whatever we can to ensure the temperature rise is limited as much as possible even if that would mean that maybe we overshoot the world win five degrees for a period but we need to do what we can out of the know and sure that them generous goes down again we have seen several countries at the conference that really want to move forward the statement from the height and vision for a vision which is a coalition for on the european union some other developed countries and a whole range of vulnerable countries from the developing side they really pledged
12:25 am
that they would do more and the more countries really made those pledges we ality i didn't the blows that we can come to avoiding dangerous climate change or so yes it is challenging i fully agree but that shouldn't that shouldn't prevent us from at least trying to do so but can i ask is any of that possible without the u.s. on board because it is a second largest greenhouse gas emission isn't it it is not going it is not possible without the us on war but we need to make a clear distinction between the federal us administration and the rest of the united states it's very deeply that in quite a range of us states in u.s. cities in u.s. businesses and leaders have made the decision to try to implement the commitments that the us made in paris and the haven't we already made substantial reductions in the last couple of years so even while the federal government at this moment is on
12:26 am
a climate retreat i didn't know you us can still come in and really be part of the change that is needed a climate i train that is a good way funding it thank you very much vandal tree appreciate your thoughts on a story director of climate action network. thank you very much. well now bamboo has been an integrity part of hong kong's building industry for centuries now it's strong and flexible and has multiple uses but it's also creating a waste problem by the government and a group of architects are trying to give the sustainable material a new lease of life sarah clarke reports from hong kong its versatility and strength have helped it survive for centuries here in hong kong it's three times faster to build than steel and costs a fraction of the price but the laws state that each pole can only be used once every year five million poles end up in landfills with landfills at capacity the government has started
12:27 am
a campaign to recycle the most important job that we are doing here to promote reduction at tsotsis so if we can do without it we instill a culture of less and safer more that is unsafe more resources for our water that we owe our next generation around fifty tonnes of used bamboo has been collected so far this year as well as public workshops design is being invited to use old poles to create new products showcasing the ancient material in a modern life we already know everything we should says the crossing we're going to launch after we launch the shoes we launch even i would like to keep that petition is made up of bamboo five a banjo has always had a reputation of being a temporary structure here in hong kong it's mainly used as scaffolding but it's most it's kind of volunteer and twice as strong as steel and it's increasingly being championed by architect as a move viable alternative in construction. i was search team at the chinese
12:28 am
university of hong kong used techniques based on cantonese bamboo scaffolding craftsmanship to design this four story high pavilion it's one fifteen international architectural awards the team also wants to promote its environmental footprint as it were new all natural resistance with the ecological push really becoming urgent you start to see that people have a regained interest in this material and a lot of research labs across the globe are starting to study it and see how it can be used in architecture based on its sustainability it's not surprising that the product market is growing rapidly bamboo being used to make everything from bottles to flooring even bikes i think it's really really been a major boost for bamboo. to highlight foundry was such a sustainable resource that we can actually use much the same patience that's helped revive the bamboo industry and change traditional mindsets as well as put

government says it's not planning to hold a second referendum on breaks it despite reports ministers are looking into the option this weekend britain's prime minister returned home empty handed from brussels off to two days of breaks it talks with the leaders to reason may was hoping for concessions to appease m.p.'s who are concerned about the part of the deal that focuses on border between ireland and northern ireland so i gave go has this update for us. the political paralysis continues even as to reason may manage to survive a confidence vote in leadership last week but that does not mean that she has managed to control any of those m.p.'s members of her party that are extremely hostile to the deal that she has negotiated with brussels however also further reports in the sunday papers today indicate that her second in command in effect david livingstone a senior cabinet minister has been meeting with opposition ministers to try and see
12:41 am
if there is anything to be done or to argue for a second referendum a so-called people's vote into really where the british public want to take this and that for some opposition ministers is the only way to go forward in trying to result this debate the fundamental difference i think between now and when we last had this referendum on the e.u. is that we will have to fix specified propositions that is the key thing in terms of the harbor so i think people realise that you cannot have your cake and eat it now and that's why this is going to be very different in the end it was a speculative debate on what we could or couldn't get if we voted to leave the european union we now know the answer to that question and that is why this is very different in my view to twenty six but even though those arguments have been put forward by even members of her own party there have been strenuous denials about this not least from reason may's own trade secretary liam fox who was our soon
12:42 am
force all the programs this sunday saying that it really would be more divisive for the country than help to resolve the issue when people say this will heal the division in the country this was what he would do if the country perpetuates the division in the country the second objection is democratic parliament said to the public we can't make a decision on this you make a decision and we will take instruction from that reinforced by the general election where both parties said they would order that referendum we have to do that. meanwhile this continues to drag on even the former prime minister tony blair making the case for a second referendum was angrily rebutted by the prime minister saying that it was really quite a damaging argument to make and proving to be even more divisive so really there is shorter and shorter time with which to resolve this issue whether that issue of the second referendum will gather any continuous support on the for the british public
