spiritual canonical as more than 2000000 gathered for one of the world's largest pilgrimage. and support man city began their defense of their english premier league title but their manager is not happy details coming up. pilgrims and mike are climbing mount arafat on the 2nd day of high as they will pray and recite the koran before performing the stoning of the devil ritual more than 2000000 people are in saudi arabia for their religious gathering as one of the 5 pillars of islam abbas sponsor cars a visiting researcher on islamic studies at george mason university he joins us from atlanta we appreciate your time so much in an ideal world one's faith one's religion is not a politicized thing but it is it is often politicized by countries and sometimes by individuals it we can't muslims with
a broad brush but having said that at this time of year how would you say muslims are approaching considering everything that's going on between saudi arabia iran and various other countries. well i'm glad you bring it out for me the hog's pilgrimage really signifies a time of global muslim unity that represents the unity of humanity and pilgrims really are deeply impacted and have in the framework the human suffering that is actually taking place as a result of all of this political fallout as you know it's never the leaders of the of these political feuds that actually suffer but it's the average civilians it's the widows it's the children it's the orphans and so people walk into the house with this framework they actually they actually you know reenact the the suffering of mother hagar and and his smile lost in the desert and so they recall the sufferings so they walk in with the political framework and a spiritual framework but they bracket concrete politics as in the church or and in
some ways might it make some muslims claim even more to their faith because of other things that they may be disillusioned about or are sad about well i believe that the muslims that are there are engaging in spiritually mindful of the season and they are they are looking for spiritual renewal connection with god seeking god's intervention seeking god's mercy and forgiveness as they try to repair some of the broken wounds that are that are taking place you know all across the world and so definitely this is a time of heightened heightened faith not just for those suffering but for those who are empathising with those suffering and people right now are deeply concerned about what's happening in yemen yemen in a daily basis the world is all almost forgotten about the terrible toll on syrian refugees as well as now it's happened to the kashmiris not to mention the palestinian struggle that's ongoing so so people bring this framework into their
mindset as as they reform this pilgrimage. we appreciate your time very much thank you thank you. our testers are occupying the arrival area of hong kong's international airport for a 2nd day or planning to stay there for the rest of the weekend to make people flying into the territory aware of their dispute with the government the protests have plunged the city into its most serious political crisis in decades and more than a 1000 protesters are marching in typo in the north of hong kong the demonstrations organizer had called the event off on friday after it was banned by police but marchers forged ahead anyway police have formed a blockade in front of the protesters rob mcbride is live for us in hong kong so robert are the protests as intense today as they have been in previous days. it's been a strange old day of protest this is an ever changing movement as the protesters
want which i'll explain a little more in in a minute we are in a place called typo it's a medium sized town up in the new territories as it's known close to the border with mainland china until about a half an hour or so ago this whole section of highway was completely full of protesters. all the way down to barriers that they had constructed for the down there opposite them was a put the police line of riot police where everybody was expecting there was going to be some sort of clash and then just as quickly as they arrived the word went around the wall knows exactly where these words originate from they say is as we know meant to be a leaderless movement everybody said no we're going somewhere out there to a place called highway it's a couple of stops down on the train so they have vanished disappeared and have moved down there and leaving behind the barricades that they had spent the last hour or 2 building we often see this when they move into places believe along roads
they quickly strip these barriers off the sides of the roads and they become very adept at using plastic ties and then to create these barricades moving straight across the road that's what we're left with here but no protesters they are down in this place called thai way that's where we will go to next as the long with the rest of the media who are following them to see what they do next and then some of them have said that after that they may go back to hong kong airport where they have this continuing rolling protest that goes through today saturday into tomorrow sunday trying to tell busy visitors to hong kong about their campaign michel ok. and do we anticipate hearing and many more from carrie lamb it seems that the things that she has been saying have not been really being received very well. that's right everybody is still rather stunned by the content to press conference
she gave friday evening here maybe she thought it was a way that she could maybe defuse the situation somewhat speaking out very much for the business community of hong kong as we know it's. very much on business it's a business oriented city but she didn't address any of the key demands the cool demands of the protesters they still have this list of 5 demands which they say have to be max all these protests will go on i think from the government's point of view their hope is that they will just exhaust themselves and as we've seen more violence creep into these demonstrations and also seeing it increase the impact on business because business is taking a big hit from this that gradually public support will away in a way and that's the the the strategy it seems of the government is just to hunker down and just to try to wait this out and hope that the school calendar year which
kicks in later this month will take a lot of these mainly students back to their colleges resell ok ron the bright line for us in hong kong rob thank you for palestinians had been killed near the gaza israel border and video that appears to show flares being fired in the air in the southern area instead as israeli soldiers shoot at the men israeli army says the palestinians were armed and attempted to breach the border and inside the rebels say they have launched another 2 drone attacks on an airport and sather in saudi arabia a spokesman for the group says the strikes hit a fueling station at a airport and targeted a monitoring tower disrupting flights it's the latest in a series of drone attacks by the who peace in recent days. and the u.n. secretary general says states deeply concerned about violence in yemen southern port city of aden fighting between us back separatists and government troops has continued for a 3rd day for the ports have at least 25 people killed and her chapelle has more.

a chemical explosion at the dispersed very highly radioactive material that's left but they thought you said this involves highly radioactive material 1st they said 2 people perished down they say 5 maybe more and they have been reports that some of the injured were brought to moscow to a special facility where they treat acute radioactive sickness and so maybe more will die it's not clear where the radioactivity was this was dispersed with how much went into the air and how much went apparently into the sea into the water but these were made be talking about rather long living and very very radioactive compound compounds that are going to be and then vironment those who hazard for a lot of time so yes so if this isn't dealt with properly what might the consequences . be it could continue things be happening as a possible that the russia could be dealing with this properly in their own way
just not giving out proper information because when it behooves them to deal with that dangerous situation properly. almost likely they're trying to do what they can but there are a soviet russian style where a crime thing down and then he kind of free you information and so everything just saying everything's fine it's clear that it is not fine. of course watts or fell out on the ground can be removed water got into the water is in the water it will get into marine life and the white sea is a very fertile marine source of marine wife friend of food and other things and fish and whatever this may be get continue to distribute it within the population the population should know where the hazards are so this should be really opened up and the i start these right now are citing
