3:52 am
there are already hundreds of rescue workers in that disaster zone in parts because of how close is it to jakarta indonesia its capital where all the emergency services are based the fear now is of a second tsunami if more volcanic activity causes more on the water landslides and that's why i'm here in chile going about five kilometers inland from the coast up a hill the authorities are saying that nobody should be along that coastline tonight in the dark in case another wave hits andrew thomas out as there are children on internet. david rather is a professor of planetary geosciences at their pretty invested in the u.k. he spoke to us about to how the tsunami was triggered the trouble this is broken it collapses and not directly related to a particular eruption which is happening surface made on that cracker time it's been erupting off and on the whole year and into several years prior to this and it's quite spectacular you can see very hot lava coming out sometimes but that
3:53 am
wasn't especially ruction that happened which caused this landslide what happened was as as the island has grown up it's not built your call it's become steeper and steeper and eventually parts we perceive became to state to be stable and it collapsed and that's what displace the seawater which caused the white if you're washing at the instant it happened you want to see a particular erupted event going on above sea level it's just that it got to state to be stable and this is what's going to happen spillane continues to grow there will be of the collapses some of which might cause tsunamis it doesn't mean there's another one it may then that we could go a long time before the next. the u.s. defense chief now has just days left in the job james mattis is leaving the post on january the first two months earlier than expected president trying to say i'm pleased to announce the da very talented deputy secretary of defense patrick
3:54 am
shanahan will assume the title of acting sector defense starting january first twenty nineteen patrick has a long list of accomplishments setting his deputy and previously boeing here because rate john hendren at joins me now from washington does more about why mattis is leaving early john. well that's not the first time the president has announced that someone is leaving by announcing they've been replaced that is simply couldn't leave quickly enough for trump mattis was widely praised as defense secretary and trump was widely criticized for allowing him to go mad as left a resignation letter on the twenty of december of december saying in essence that the u.s. was not treating its allies well by just announcing by tour by presidential tweet that the u.s. would be pulling its two thousand troops out of syria mattis wrote in that letter our strength as a nation is an extra completely linked to the strength of our unique and
3:55 am
comprehensive system of alliances and partnerships that's a very nice way of saying we're sticking it to u.s. allies he went on to say that the president deserves a defense secretary whose ideas were more aligned with his and of course after mattis resigned then brett mcgurk the u.s. envoy in the fight on isis also resigned a day after that there's been an outcry on sunday talk shows here in the united states by senators of both parties about that move dick durbin is a democratic senator from illinois he said i was one of those who told matt is to stay as long as possible we count on him to be here and stop this president from his worst impulses will trump apparently did not like all of that coverage didn't like the criticism of himself and he didn't like the fact that in madison is letter one suspects he didn't think trump in the end so he accelerated the exit is by announcing the next person in line and the meantime trump especially on the phone
3:56 am
to techies president added want to detect any kind of shift in strategy from trump over this whole syria put out business. there is a bit of subtler language in his tweet he writes i had just i just had a long and productive call with president area one of turkey we discussed isis our mutual involvement in syria and here's the key wording at this slow and highly coordinated pullout of u.s. troops from the area and that's much gentler wording when he initially announced the u.s. pullout he was not making it sound like it would be slow and orderly and that seems to have been the provocation behind those two resignations if it were indeed to be stretched out over time i know that would certainly please u.s. commanders in the pentagon it would probably please and number of u.s. allies in the region including the kurdish fighters who who now feel that they are going to be ill treated in an area where russia and turkey are playing an expanded role filling that vacuum there but it's always hard to tell from the president's
3:57 am
tweets whether that's going to translate into some kind of action on the ground or whether that's something he's saying at the moment i know that at the pentagon they often try to parse these tweets as well and then follow up with information trying to make sure that they're enacting the president's will so i suppose it is conceivable that this means a slower withdrawal than we at least thought was going to happen a day or so i think john hendren thank you very much indeed the french president has criticized donald trump's decision on syria speaking in chad in one year mccall also praised james mattis. georgia typify didn't want to be soon please i deeply regret the decision taken in syria i would like to pay tribute to general mattis and to the remarks which accompanied his decision over the past year and a half i and the french minister of ahmed phyllis's know he was a reliable representative and constantly reminded us of the importance of what being allies means. on the ground in syria the impact of china's decision is being
