on al jazeera. al-jazeera. hello and welcome to the sound is there a news hour live from doha i'm martin dennis coming up in the next 60 minutes all outgoing flights from hong kong's airport are canceled for a 2nd day as mainland china hints at serious consequences. the protests in indian controlled areas of kashmir against new delhi his decision to revoke its autonomy effectively annexing the territory. immigrants with legal status in the u.s. and now under pressure from donald trump's new policies. with the sport as boxing
1:01 pm
promoter says defend their decision to host a world heavyweight fight in saudi arabia plus andy murray singles comeback ends in defeat in cincinnati we'll hear from him in the next hour. so all outgoing flights have now been canceled again hong kong international airport this is the 5th day of protests there on monday a big demonstration shut down the airport which is the region's busy hong kong's chief executive kerry says weeks of antigovernment protests a damaging the rule of law she told reporters in the city in her words that it is seriously wounded and she warns hong kong will take a long time to recover from these violent demonstrations cold like. violence no matter if it's use. violence or condoning violence to push hong kong
1:02 pm
down a path of no return will plunge hong kong society into 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. with the 2 correspondents on the story who got robbed mcbride he's in hong kong and we've got. his in shen's and on the chinese mainland says hey let's go to rob rob what has brought about the 2nd cancellation of all outgoing flights. that's right martin well the announcement was made about 15 minutes ago here and we still have passengers arriving there been going past us at about to get some very bad news when they arrive at the check in desk because basically the check in desks are now empty we watched staff about half an hour ago started to basically close up
1:03 pm
shop with withdrawn from the check in. and yes any craft that have already checked in at the cross still taking off the passengers on the yes side will be going to see them but any craft that had been checked in yet well you won't be able to check in your flight has been canceled as you mentioned there a 2nd day running one of the busiest aviation hubs in the world brought to a standstill by the sheer weight of numbers of protesters who turned up there it has to be said the numbers are far less than yesterday monday when we saw tens of thousands of people take over this terminal there have been less people protesters turning up but there have been a crush of massive. right and rob what about the overall impact on the city given given that there is increasing increasingly tough language coming both from kerry lam and
1:04 pm
indeed from the mainland right i'm afraid we've lost mcbride our correspondent who is in the airport but as you can see from the live shot there is a very crowded situation people still turning out for these flights only to learn that their outgoing flights have been canceled and we'll keep a close eye on developments in the airport in the meantime though let's go to scott hired our correspondent who's on the mainland in the nearby city of shenzhen and scott what are people there basically making of the of the chaos as as it would appear taking place very close to them. syngenta is not that far at all from hong kong exactly behind me is actually the transportation hub you can even consider this is the gateway center and from mainland china into the hong kong territories and a very different scene from what we've seen with rob and what we've seen over the
1:05 pm
last several weeks and we spoken to some people here and they have a different point of view than those protesters obviously this is a selection but a lot of them are frustrated they say and angry that the central government from beijing isn't doing more to stop the protests in hong kong even focusing on the government there kerry lam's government and the police they feel as though those protests and stop as quickly as possible as you can imagine the very personal reasons we talk to some people who are traveling into hong kong they're worried about their own safety they're worried about their family safety so they have a very specific view of what's going on in hong kong less sympathetic if you will because when you think about what the people what those protesters are fighting for in hong kong are things that people here in mainland china don't have so obviously there's a different point of view on that but what's it saying here wishing jen to you know what we've seen over the last couple of days as you mentioned martine the rhetoric coming out from beijing has definitely ratcheted up you know there was even the term terrorist and some what some of the protesters were doing over the last couple of weeks could be seen as terrorism this coming from beijing you know we've seen
1:06 pm
you know the person who leads the office of the liaison office between hong kong and macau and the central government saying that he wants to crack down with an iron fist if he has to so obviously a ratcheting up of rhetoric but here the people in jail and you can almost say generally in mainland china have a very different point of view of those people who are standing behind rob at the airport there in hong kong and skull and also the chinese authorities have been giving visual threats i suppose is a way you could describe them demonstrations of the of the kinds of tactics that could be played in hong kong most recently we see these great lines of. vehicles. absolutely these over personnel carriers and thousands of paramilitary troops have come into the shin gen area it's actually they have been staging at an athletic field just outside the main part of
1:07 pm
the city here obviously you know and these images the video of this were carried on state run television so it wasn't as though this was secretly released this came from state run media so obviously this is a message that the central government wanted to get out now what's interesting is that there they cast a little bit of a fog over the top of why all these paramilitaries paramilitary forces and equipment are here they said they're going to be staging a very large exercise at some point very soon but clearly it sends a message we are just across the border from hong kong hundreds of paramilitary soldiers here as well as a lot of equipment so obviously that sends a signal though they say you know they're waiting to see how things unfold but obviously that's a signal to the protesters in hong kong right ok thank you for that live and shen's and mainland china very close to hong kong. the anger has overshadowed the muslim holiday of aid in the parts of kashmir under indian control hundreds of people

1:11 pm
india through an instrument of atic station by the hindu maharajah at the time and that of course led to a conflict which eventually led to so of un intervention and call for a club that never occurred so pakistan is using the term. is i think using it to draw attention to the issue which slowly needs to needs to have more attention to it i believe that the international community and the un as a sort of embodiment of that would see this is an ongoing. international dispute but also a major. question of concern for the human rights of a particular people their people the question about annexation the question specifically about the united nations is that there are
1:12 pm

1:14 pm
marginalize minority populations this is ministration has directed d.h.l. to to conduct these raids as part of what i believe is this administration's campaign of terror. which is to make holes whole populations of people afraid to go to work the white house argues congress passed bipartisan legislation in 1906 to prevent immigrants from exploiting public benefits but the laws were enforced as congress has been an able to reform immigration law the trump administration says it's seeking to attract only the most self-reliant applicants the benefit to taxpayers is a long term benefit seeking to ensure that our immigration system is bringing people to join us as american citizens as legal permanent residents 1st who can stand on their own 2 feet who will not be reliant on the welfare system especially

1:16 pm
reacted strongly with the results with the press a falling more than 30 percent against the dollar the new reports from the capital . the day after his shock overwhelming defeat in primary elections prison. he said he would listen more he appealed to arjun science of patience for his policies to show results his address to the nation came after a day of emergency meetings firstly with the head of the central bank them with his cabinet. we've had a very bad day today we're poorer than we were before the primaries have been hit hard the dollar has gone up again with all the consequences that will have. the markets reacted to sunday's result while the government was still reeling the argentine base so lost one 3rd of its value against the u.s. dollar in the 1st few hours of trading stocks and shares in both wall street and one osiris took a pounding the argentine electorate has clearly rejected president makris neoliberal austerity measures while the opposition is offering solutions to
1:17 pm
argentina's problems but the financial markets are clearly said they don't like. that if the results of sunday's primaries are repeated in october and it would signal a clear 1st round victory for a birthday often and is. his vice presidential running mate is the former president cristina fernandez to kitchener and the markets return to her populism high spending on social projects and the allegations of corruption that still haunts her . it seems to me that i was in diners haven't learned much in all these years i think a hard god knows i was going to come back to the government which i think is bad news equally machree is a bad manager the karna me a bad man the economy we're better graduates and. can't believe devoted prefer crew a criminal a mob and didn't appreciate all the public work that's been done it's been a mad and i'm sad because this can be. the result and across latin america the
1:18 pm
right wing president of neighboring brazil one of the return of a left wing government in argentina could lead to another venice whale. we don't want to rajan time brothers. that. would happen if the results of the elections held yesterday are confirmed in the october. the size of the argentine government defeat is still being analyzed it is a difficult situation the voters votes was a pocket and the best of both. runs with the expectation of a konami care policy with a little over 2 months until presidential elections the argentine electorate must now consider which is to start clear opposing economic models will best result of the economic difficulties than shwe i know how to 01 osiris right let's speak tonight his chief market analyst at think markets u.k. joining us live from london what do you think the president. has actually done
1:19 pm
wrong i mean he advocated a policy of austerity and of fiscal responsibility which obviously the i.m.f. liked giving the i.m.f. a huge bailout just last year so what has he done wrong. thanks for having me i don't think he's done anything wrong in this particular condition because les just to remember one fight about anything which gave rise to this populism this particular stance is when every man is really trying to nail down on its fiscal reform and it's also introducing some other austerity mushers and we have seen this film over and over more recently over in europe remember what happened over in greece no matter who ever was good thing that will whoever was in control of the government they had the same problems same issues because from the i.m.f. perspective what they really like to see is that ok give me and who is actually voting to deliver who's actually going to cut down and then make more tough most
1:20 pm
take more tough measures with respect to their fiscal reform and also on the austerity front as well and i think this is what the current government has done but of course at the same time inflation is continues to rising countries' reserves or the debt of the 4 fifths of that is in different currencies and when a depreciation of the currency happens at a pace that we have seen today of course there are many different challenges for the country then so in the most immediate sense am i right in saying that the greatest fear is that argentina won't be able to afford to pay off some of its enormous debt and will actually default again. well the default swaps of increased the odds of ties you can really see them that way yes i think the enormous amount of investors are really thinking that. the country is likely to default and in the light of this one yes no one really want is interested to hold
1:21 pm
whether it's a 10 year on the whether it's a one century point rich argentina has issued as well but remember argentina has a long history with the i.m.f. with the 22 previous bailouts as well but what i am half would be very careful they don't want to see yet another episode what they have seen what happened back in 2001 when country came up with it and look for a bailout of 8000000000 which they did and then still the country and the default so in essence and the markets and the big loaning institutions they would prefer to have a mockery government back in in power come the elections in october rather than the the populous policies of the cristina fernandez to question who of course is running as a vice president with another finance alberto finances as the presidential candidate. anything curve review because the i am it is in our members'
1:22 pm
interests to the current working and to make sure that the current current government the levers and from the government perspective they need to make sure that the populous pro party doesn't come in power because the more fiscal reform or austerity measures they're going to apply it will only give more popularity to the populace i even left meant and it is a very our decision when it comes to any political party is in charge of this situation because it's very easy to go out and then say ok we're going to do more spending we're not going to listen to i.m.f. blah blah blah but in all reality that is not possible because when you are taking money for i.m.f. it comes with certain conditions and i.m.f. does dictate to a large extent how you would really perform with your fiscal policies name thank you very much indeed for talking to us live from london. thank you but israel and

1:32 pm
the 1st day of emerging quite slowly step what do we know what is the picture that we've managed to build up. well martin it's still very mysterious what exactly has happened on thursday in the north of russia at that that site in congo's only 5 days later as you just sat the city of 7 haven't has announced that there was an increase of 16 times the normal levels of radiation and the highest levels were actually measured at a kindergarten in that city and people were panicking and buying dean the government has been very very tight lipped about this just now the spokesman for president clinton passion of sad that the people should just rely on the what the government is announcing about this accident so far rely on the information that is coming out and also about deregulation levels he said that old state agencies are working to ensure the safety of all russian citizens but of course but people are
1:33 pm
remembering what happened in 1986 at the chatham at the china bill plant of course it's of a very different scale but at that time there was also an information blackout and a lot of people are now also online asking questions and they want answers from the government about what exactly happened in dates and how long did it take them before the russian authorities actually acknowledged that this was a nuclear explosion. well it took i think 3 to 4 days because on thursday and the announcement was 2 people died there's no radiation soon after that the local authorities in the congress announced and there was a spike of freddie ation to 2 hours but then a ready ation went back to the normal levels soon after that in the bay of the white see over there there was a suddenly a closure off any shipping in that area for whole months already raising questions of course so if ilke 3 they slater ferdie in nuclear so it is to announce that
1:34 pm
there was a small nuclear reactor on board that exploded in that missile and now observers are speculating that what the russians have been testing is this new skyfall missile that vladimir putin described as being able to fly from one corner of the globe to the other president trump actually tweeted about it he sat we are learning a lot from this accident and we have to same kind of technology but even more advanced. right steadfast and live in moscow thank you very much jenny harrison meteorologist is with me now and obviously alarm bells are going to ring because people do remember chernobyl don't they a nuclear explosion one of the weather conditions that would determine how dangerous this is in the how far the dangerous spread zacchaeus how far the deadly this actually gets into the into the atmosphere he said this radiation well i can actually show you a graphic martine this shows you what the weather is actually like at the moment
1:35 pm
now a few days ago it was a very similar story what you're looking at here is a map showing i suppose we took our eyes the bars it's to do low pressure and high pressure so sue the direction the winds and the strength of the wind so we've actually had high pressure in control and that means the winds are being very light across this entire region so not pushing anything in the atmosphere very far at all but not only that high pressure the winds going to clockwise direction so when you've got this do you move clear skies with no wins above this site for the missile actually took place then in actual fact what you end up with these winds pushing to the north to the northeast actually pushing whatever came up back towards russia anything that was up there for those few days it was actually going in that general direction right so that means countries to the west yet would have been safe would have been spared any of the dispersal of this material it's hard to say all of it isn't it but maybe most of it and certainly in terms of any really strong winds in the region this is the forecast that we're looking at now and in
1:36 pm
fact it's the same sort of story the winds are just going up to the east again pushing well to the north so no nothing it looks as if nothing else a few days has actually had any impact on those cities all those countries to the west in the south so anything that's up there should be coming back down into northern russia what is the point at which i mean this might be an impossible question to answer but what is the point of which sweden and norway can breathe a sigh of relief and say we're safe well it depends what was released i would say the amount that was released and the strength of the winds and if anything is going to change dramatically but for the time being we've actually got systems coming across in. in europe so they're pushing a lot of the weather a lot of the winds actually continue to push well away from northern europe and pushing everything on towards northern areas of russia jenny thank you very much. now and have saved hundreds of millions of lives around the world but they're increasing availability has led to overuse and that has made many of us resistant to these formally vital medicines now in kenya research as i say some antibiotics
