hello again in the much of the us there is no now single system for ambulance services in most rural areas that while police and firefighters are generally paid emergency medical technicians are volunteers as john hendren reports from devil's tower wyoming the system is on the verge of collapse.
10:38 pm
150000. volunteer their time. verge of collapse.
10:39 pm
volunteers to answer the calls there or do they just they're just won't be well i guess i would say it is. a crisis that needs immediate attention as the u.s. population increasingly leaves rural areas and grows older and with more 2 income households busier there are fewer emergency medical technicians to drive the ambulances. for many here in the vast expanses of rural america the distance between the gravely injured and the nearest dam billings is growing wider and for emergency services scrambling for volunteers and funding it's a system in crisis for rural residents whose ailments range from rattlesnake bites to rodeo injuries that means longer sometimes life threatening waits for help the answer many say is to fund rural ambulances through taxes like most police and fire services the volunteer model i do not believe is sustainable as it currently exists the organizations cannot be expected to continue to fund themselves and buy their
10:40 pm
equipment and provide their time for free it's just it's it's not a sustainable model. already across the rural us ambulance services are shutting their doors for good many operators who remain here one day soon critically injured patients will down 911 and no one will answer john hendren al-jazeera devil's tower wyoming. will be continuing our series on 1st responders who are going to afghanistan next they're often arrive on the scene of attacks quickly but struggle to do much else a report from kabul will be on monday right here on. time for the sports news with joe thank you they're under way in qualifying for the monaco grand prix miss avies have so far dominated the formula one season in the 1st 5 races but ferrari hoping to change that things didn't start well though for their monegasques drive a charlatan work despite setting the fastest pace in final practice earlier on

10:42 pm
that's a challenge in itself so. but yeah it's going to be exciting tormenting mentally to go through. simona halep is looking to defend her 2800 title at roland garros the world number 3 says she feels relaxed ahead of the tournament but admits that coming in as the champion has added the stress. i know it's a little bit of pressure there because the defending champion but it's 1st time when it happens so i just want to take the positive and to be in these position i think is the best thing so i wouldn't complain about it i just try to play every may cheer and i try to get ready as much as possible until i have to start its own is even after the 1st leg of the calf champions league final would that casablanca esperance to tunis drew 11 shake his head or forward that cancelled out for. opening strike the draw leaves the final wide open going into next week's 2nd leg in tunisia a sponsor hoping to become the 4th club to retain the title. domestic doubles are

france in just under 2 weeks' time but the issue of inequality in football has come under the spotlight again fief has doubled the prize pool this year's event to $30000000.00 but that's still well behind the $400000000.00 prize money for the men's tournament morphew is tuning into the women's game than ever before members of the defending u.s. team say that more needs to be done to address the differences between pay and conditions. there's been such a lack of investment for all of these years and such a lack of care and attention. that you know doubling or tripling or quadrupling investment care. you know attention to the women's game i think would be appropriate so i guess incremental change is better than none at all but for the resources and for the ability that i feel like fever has. to implement change i think that there are not doing nearly enough 3 time major champion jordan spaeth remains in contention at the halfway stage. colonial the

10:50 pm
in a moment we'll hear from them best ravi on iran's reaction to the latest developments but 1st here is alan fischer and washington initial reports suggested the u.s. was preparing to send additional 120000 troops to the middle east to combat the perceived threat from iran the president donald trump is no confirmed he's sending $1500.00 we want to add protection the middle east we're going to be sending a relatively small number of troops but the u.s. defense department says the troops are going to include an anti missile battery additional intelligence and surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft it's also sending fighter aircraft for to terrorists. the pentagon says the move is defensive and not meant to provoke war but adds to another rush deployment or this month the u.s.s. abraham lincoln carrier strike group started to move to the gulf we would continue . to call for caution and restraint both in terms of actions and in terms of rate and. the threat from iran is also being used to push through $8000000000.00 in
10:51 pm
weapon sales to saudi arabia the united arab emirates and jordan normally congress would be given 30 days to approve foreign arm sales but it's already put a hold on earlier sales so secretary of state might pump decided to bypass congress and to clear the seal necessary to bolster regional allies against iran in the statement he said delaying the shipment could cause problems for key partners during a time of increasing regional volatility he says he sees this as a one off event the state department's decision to do this implies are very intent on increasing the weapons flow to saudi arabia but they did it within what i think they would argue is a politically acceptable frame i think jordan to the mix question now of course although it may have been there originally these 3 countries together it's looks like a more robust package of defense against iran the sale has provoked criticism from
10:52 pm
both republicans and democrats in congress but it appears there's little they can do to stop it the president insists robust u.s. action sent a clear message to iran right now no i don't think iran wants the bite and i certainly don't think they want to fight with us trump maintains he wants to strike a new nuclear deal with iran having pool the u.s. out of the existing deal he's cranked up tough financial sanctions to force them to reopen discussions alan fischer washington for more on this we can cross over to same. as we're saying zain are the iranian foreign minister has been speaking out against this u.s. troop deployment to the region. absolutely iranian leaders are watching every incremental step that the united states takes in the middle east very very carefully carefully at the moment certainly 1500 troops even the u.s. admits itself is a relatively small number of the ark defensive in nature not big enough to really
10:53 pm
create any sort of offensive action and the united states already has tens of thousands of troops in the middle east already in and around the region but iran takes every incremental step very seriously right now the job odds are if the foreign minister saying that this is a dangerous escalation characterizing it as a threat to peace and international security he also said that recent accusations by the united states against iran saying that iran was carrying out destabilizing activities in the region he said these were simply an excuse by americans accusations meant to justify their hostile policies towards iran and justify the raising of tensions in the region so certainly leaders here watching every bit and steps that the united states is taking in the region very carefully the same bus ravi with an update from to her on thank you well u.s. media are reporting iran's foreign minister and a member of the senate intelligence committee met several weeks ago mohammad javad

10:55 pm
