4:02 pm
into turmoil and chaos and this in the takes its decision but what else can you tell us osama about these for struction so as we said it's been 10 days where people haven't been able to communicate even with what their other family members. absolutely richelle we've been speaking to family members there's about 35000 kashmiris who here is refugees from the other side who are stranded there people who've sent their families to synagogue and you respond just you can do a father a few hours ago was telling us that if he sent his daughters on summer holidays to srinagar and haven't been able to hear back from them for the last 10 days he doesn't even know if they're alive so that's the kind of uncertainty and anguish that people are living in there haven't been able to get in touch with them and their reports that are coming in from indian administered kashmir are off roofs and cracked sounds hearing from the pakistani side things that you know there is fear
4:03 pm
that there are human rights violations that are being carried out and all of the the statements that we've heard from the indian side saying that these restrictions are going to be eased some of them have been used in the last few days on the moment on the muslim holiday of evil other people who are some people who are allowed to leave and pray in their local mosque nars congregations are also banned there is a still a ban on people gathering outside of their homes a curfew is in place and what is more difficult for people in this day and age of connectivity is not being able to get in touch with their loved ones people not being able to go out and seek medical assistance some people have been saying that they have to ration up on things like baby formula for a few hours restrictions or so it is a difficult situation here on the other side of the line of control people have been telling us that they believe that india is holding hostage girls 1000000 kashmiris against their will and i know some avenge of aid with the latest for us there thank you. china has condemned protested hong kong's airport as near
4:04 pm
a terrorist acts after 2 men from the mainland were beaten by demonstrators on kong's airport authority says it's now secured an injunction to stop protesters from disrupting operations planes are flying again after thousands of demonstrators flooded terminal buildings causing mass cancellations of violent confrontations on tuesday when riot police moved in with the tongs and pepper spray on kong police have. media saying recent violence is unacceptable. the home police have always facilitate peaceful and orderly protests over the years but the extremely radical and fallen acts have certain the crossed the line and not to the most severely condemn. the police. to all citizens in hong kong that we would take steps to bring to justice thank you. and pride is live for us right now at the airport and hong kong so rob how are things playing
4:05 pm
out so far today particularly compared to last night. that's right richelle well we have a few hours ago as of a few hours ago these new restrictions have come into force there is a sports injunction and a few hours ago these security checks went up on all of these entrances and on this particular one which you can just ask paul to zoom in here there is an ongoing tiff here between a few very angry protesters who realized just how strict these restrictions it means that basically there are security now checking that you have a valid id or a passport and also a ticket a reason to travel or reason to be here if you are clearly a demonstrator then you are just not allowed in and people being turned away people think it's very unfair because they believe there was an agreement even though there was this court injunction that stops demonstrators getting to certain areas
4:06 pm
of the airport they believe the agreement was that in their own designated area here in the arrivals hall where protesters could go to when they did there is but there's only several 100 people here and as we've seen their friends aren't allowed to join them so that's a rather think they realize there is a catch to this and they are certainly not happy the airports view is in position is. look we've been tolerant we've had 2 days of these protests we're an airport we need planes in we need planes out we need passengers to pass through here safely and as we've seen from the chaos of the last couple of days that just hasn't it hasn't been a safe environment well it does seem as though their patience is worn thin they are allowing these protesters here to demonstrate still but they're not allowing the numbers to grow to the 10s of thousands that we saw the same time yesterday and 2 days ago on monday what about this time late afternoon as we saw the basically the
4:07 pm
airport ground to a halt all flights were canceled going out of here the the departure boards were basically all red with canceled on it and that is the position now so people are allowed to protest here but they are being restricted in reality i think if you can we know from social media that people are just photoshopping their tickets and putting it on your device and quickly showing it and then once they get in here you swap into your black shirt and then you join this the airport knows that is happening but what they don't want to see it that kinds of tens of thousands that have created the kinds of chaos that we've seen over the past couple of days michel tyner standing that there are plans for a huge protest on sunday potentially 500000 people that's what the protesters are saying is there any indication so far what the final straw might be china's side. everybody keeps looking
4:08 pm
anxiously northwards as i'm sure china looks anxiously southwards just wondering yes what what is it what is too far what is china's red line we saw the storming of the parliament beginning of july that wasn't the red line the closing of the airport that wasn't the red line i think china will be happy at the what it seen here today the airport running again and i think it has to be said from the protesters point of view we probably weren't going to see the thousands anyway this wednesday after 2 days of these mass protests here it's almost over they've made their point and i think there was a danger of losing some public support by closing the airport in a way the authorities have probably done this movement a favor because there were a lot of very angry residents. travelers passing through hong kong who who whose travel plans were disrupted and so on and also people here i think have been shocked by the kind of violent scenes that we saw here especially directed towards
4:09 pm
people from mainland china that this wasn't what the movement started was meant to be all about so i think some respects people are happy to see this phase of the movement over but as you mentioned the weekend is coming we going to see another mass demonstration and sadly these protests do seem to involve more violence i think the position from the government here and still from mainland china behind them is that the police are still able to control the situation even if it does mean sadly having to use more force which is what the fear is this coming weekend ok rob mcbride with the latest from the airport in hong kong rob thank you. running president hassan rouhani has criticized the united states for building up its military presence in the gulf rani says gulf states can protect the region and foreign forces are not needed as the u.s. and u.k. launched an effort to increase security after iran seized a british flag bessel last month let's go now to us a big who is in tehran so what else is rouhani saying.
4:10 pm
well it's the 1st time is this dress reports that israel may be involved in this u.s. led naval coalition in the region which the united states says is to guarantee navy freedom of navigation in the gulf now president rouhani said that the idea that israel would be involved for its own security is absurd and that if israel was able to provide security should do so and its own region he also said that wherever israel has a presence it causes insecurity terrorism and massacre but he also said that iran is willing to restart initially establish relations with islamic countries and neighboring countries and said that the only purpose and the goal of the united states in the region was to sow discord and new money and he said that the coast of countries are fully capable of providing security and stability now the context for all this is that the fact that the united states unilaterally pulled that 2015 nuclear deal last year and impose sanctions on iran and also in the last few months
4:11 pm
there have been increasing tensions with drones shut down tankers mysteriously attacked which the united states and its gulf allies blame iran for iran obviously deny that but also iran seized a british tanker after the u.k. sees an iranian tanker near gibraltar now this is important because 20 percent of the world's oil passes through the straits of her most but right now this u.s. led naval coalition has 2 countries in the united states and the united kingdom and that's because the european countries are trying to salvage this deal and they feel that any presence of troops in the region would jeopardize that deal in fact germany has refused saying that everything should be done to avoid escalation of a live press in tehran thank you very much. mike read said asylum seekers from central america seeking a new life in the united states a racist remarks and recent match shadings well not to tear that castro went to say it out or as in mexico to see why they're not having 2nd thoughts. for new york us
