a very worrying and dangerous situation i believe that those who heard my words previously might have only half believed me but the situation in hong kong in the past week has made me very worried that we have reached this dangerous situation now hong kong opposition legislator cloudy of morrow says lance failed to answer questions about the suspended extradition bell that protesters want and tali withdrawn can relearn has basically been confined. to the press or the water who is actually running the show in hong kong and that is a change because. the press was asking whether she has the autonomy to do or what she things right about the slow explanation or is it all according to beijing's order and she wouldn't have received the journalistic suggestion that she may not be in charge now that's actually could be taken as
insulting the suggestion for any normal. now operations are slowly resuming at hong kong to national airport but many flights remain canceled after protests shut down the tram hub on monday passengers have been cheering to check in less than 24 hours after demonstrations flooded the main terminal the protest forced the cancellation of more than 100 flights let's go to our correspondent rob bryant now he is live for us at hong kong airport will start with the address from carry lamb rob really strong words seem to reflect the more muscular police response of seen in the past few days. that's right it was classic kerry last very about you almost it could be beijing speaking again for a lot of people here especially in the protest movement the pan democratic campaign she is basically parroting what beijing has already said it's
a very uncompromising stance it's rule of law and order must be maintained urging people not to take to the streets not to break the law. really supporting the police as you mentioned there it's almost as though the at the moment with the government so in battle beleaguered you don't see kerry lamb or her ministers that part from these brief press briefings they pretty much cancelled the official engagements or public engagements at least in the sign of the government or thora t. here is pretty much lines of police in the streets 6 deep in uniform occasionally firing off or tear gas and pepper spray that seems to be at the moment what we have in terms of government all or authority so very much carries i am saying once again that things are almost on a knife edge we are reaching this critical stage but supporting the police and urging people to get back to normal get back to work and then maybe we can have
dialogue going well it has to be said that for a lot of these people those are the kind of things being said 5 years ago when the umbrella movement came to an end there was. i hope that there could be dialogue then that you have to say that in the past 5 years although there has been some tinkering with the fundamental problems here nothing much has changed so for a lot of people that question of dialogue about that ship has sailed a little bit and rob the protests have been going on for more than 10 weeks now but does it feel like with what happened at the airport that we've entered a new phase but the protests on just disrupting life in hong kong 100 flights were canceled on monday. all. absolutely it is it did take things to a new level we haven't been there before we didn't expect it there was all sorts of social media chatter monday about maybe getting thousands of people to the airport and maybe will bring it to a halt i have to say don't really believe that when we arrived here monday and saw tens of thousands of people here that's
a real shock but things are gradually getting back to normal yes the flights were canceled monday a half day's worth of flights which always causes a big knock on effect for hong kong as one of the most important aviation hubs in the world it's not only flights coming in and out but all the connecting flights and the parts of china that hong kong connects with let me just give you a quick look here though they are gradually trying to clear the backlog and we have 2 levels here this is the arrival hall which still pretty much belongs to the protesters they are have their ongoing sit in trying to educate visiting passengers about what this dispute is all about and i would like to ban isn't posters alleging police brutality saying the police or the terrorist police or the murderers this is the departure hall and this pretty much belongs now to the traveling public wants more just a matter of hours ago this was completely closed it was swamped with protesters there were banners and stickers and placards everywhere it is
a very worrying scene that they could do that and bring things to a standstill but it also elizabeth just quickly it also says something about this remarkable city that just a matter of hours later all of those posters placards of dan they places working normally they're trying to clear the backlog of passengers are checking in and there's lots of hong kong stuff behind those check in desks trying to get the place back up and running that's been rob thank you very much for that now that's wrong mcbride all the very latest live at hong kong airport thank you. we're going to move on to other news now an anger has shattered the muslim holiday of aden indeed administered kashmir need. as hundreds of people came out to protest against new delhi's decision to strip its autonomy they marched on the streets of the capital city in a god defying a security clampdown in place for more than one week priyanka got the has moved from new delhi. it's the muslim holiday of either. the largest city in india administered. under the tightest security in

community was impacted the most of any of those 5000000 that's because up along this valley now this is an area that's outside the evacuation zone over a 1000000 people were evacuated during this typhoon the people here were not because they're outside of that zone the storm wasn't supposed to come this far and it really didn't but what did happen is up the valley water started to pool a natural dam formed and then it broke and then flash floods came streaming down this valley and buried more than 20 people in a community just up the river a little bit and you can see here the community is still cleaning up and this is well after 2 days since the storm hit. what they're doing is they're having to clear these areas on the way up to where some of the biggest devastation is now obviously they're going to do this repeated times as they go up now they're telling us they just got here on monday you know it's couple days after the typhoon that's because they're specials to do exactly what just happened now again there are many more kilometers of this work straight up the road that they
have to do now in the meantime though further down the line there are still people missing about approximately 9 people they think are still buried beneath this rubble so the searching goes on and the cleanup goes on but obviously this is very beneficial for the rescue crews that have to get further up the valley. iran's foreign minister has accused the us of a leading a military buildup in the gulf that could destabilize the region and an exclusive interview with al-jazeera john the city says more warships in the strait of hormuz will need lead to more and security. reports. as the u.s. batanes the pressure on iran tension is on the rise american and british vessels have been deployed in the gulf as the u.s. calls for an international military coalition to secure the strait of hold was one of the wells busiest shipping. but iran's foreign minister javad zarif told. the naval build up could destabilize the entire region this is
