devastated some of the people have been living in the slum for more than 20 years many are trying to salvage what they can uncertain about what their future will hold and where they will live next 100 al-jazeera dhaka bangladesh. here's what we've got for you on this news hour. the u.s. president considers declaring a group of peace activists as a terrorist organization but not the far right demonstrators they were facing. green with envy an award winning a forest sanctuary in the middle of one of the world's biggest and busiest cities and he might have been one of chelsea's greatest ever players but frankly is having a tough time as the blues boss the details with someone i love late. to has denied to a u.s.
request to seize the iranian oil tank of it's been held there for 6 weeks a supreme court judge in the british territory ordered the vessels released by the u.s. department of justice issued a warrant for its detention and as you see from these live pictures in the waters off travolta right now the tanker is preparing to leave iran says it should be on its way shortly that tank and now flagged as an iranian vessel andrew symonds is also out on the waters off gibraltar hi andrew tell us the latest. well the latest. is this that as you rightly point out it's still preparing to leave gibraltar those waters are headed to international waters destination unknown but definitely the mediterranean know shortly about half ago we were filming when a service boat came alongside the supertanker started putting supplies on board and then also on the port side of the vessel this service
but also transferred crew we believe the engineers at least 6 of them in a what was a safety. get quite a perilous operation room. because the seas are much much higher home but the other side of the ship so these extra key members of the crew were on board and we've monitored radio communications there was one technician there who is going to be taken back on us on the service but when it returns he obviously has something to do something pretty important we heard in radio and a very much of a british voice that was it wasn't accented in any foreign way it was a british voice and he was asking for his laptop and various other equipment to be brought up so something's going on board that ship right now also the a i asked system which is the automatic identification system which everybody gets from the
front spotters on the ship the name of the ship its identity its position its full details that are not showing up on all the equipment and you can get them or even order on a i phone app of this ship's identity as being adrian worn no longer a gray swan so really it does appear that the there's certainly movement slow movement for this super tanker to move with it's 140000000 dollars worth of cargo on board ok great information there andrew can you tell us anything more about the attempt on the 2nd attempt by the united states to actually have to tank a ceased. yes that was a a court. procedure on friday in the district of columbia court in the u.s. it did actually issue a warrant for the seizure of the ship but all of this was done under the
legislation passed in the u.s. as part of the sanctions really imposed on iran bother us now that it's procedure started in fact in the early hours of thursday and initially gibraltar said it couldn't really handle this it used a what is a beaut. body over the u.k. gibraltar and the u.s. which would liaise to see if action could be taken criminal action against the ship now we've now heard only 45 hours ago from the gibraltar government an announcement that no this can't be done because what's happened here simplifying it as best i can is that it that the court process that took place and allowed this ship free was done under the european union sanctions not the u.s. sanctions and assurances have been given legal a short says submitted to the court submitted to all e.u. institutions that this ship will not go to syria now that sort of assurance may
have been some defiant remarks from the iranian foreign ministry since but this far as the legislature here are all of the court system here it's not prepared to help the u.s. out so the question now is what next well what next will be this huge ball behind me will set to see what time we don't know but certainly the indication is it will be sunday night then what does the u.s. do how couldn't win over could it even move in a military fashion that it seems unlikely it will be a massive. escalation of the whole affair when what's been happening here is an attempt to deescalate the crisis and hopefully people want the return of the british flag tanker this industry to hold what in the strait of hormuz is being held by iran to be released in order to deescalate the tension not inflate it's great stuff from andrew symonds on the waters of gibraltar thank you for that
update. just one of the note on iran it says a plan by the u.s. sent to create a so-called safe zone along syria's northern borders with provocative and worsen u.s. and turkish officials agreed to establish the zone last week as a way to manage tension between turkish forces and codifying says the move has been rejected by the syrian government who called it a blatant attack on the country's sovereignty. in the united kingdom a leaked government report has predicted chaos if it leaves the european union with no deal at the end of october more on that story now in a london new center with maryam namazie that's right come on the clock is ticking with the october 31st breaks it date false approaching and still no sign of any deal now leach government documents describe the risk of a meltdown which would result in shortages of food fuel and medicine prober exit
politicians have dismissed this is excellent and the minister in charge of coordinating no deal planning said the u.k. has scaled up those preparations since the report was written so again go has mall . it paints a grim picture a leaked report in a sunday newspaper breaking down what the u.k. civil service says would likely happen in the event of a disorderly exit from the european union and the havoc it could entailed the dossier known as operation yellow hammer offers an insight into the plans underway in the event of a no deal breck's it an enormous feats that would have to be achieved to avoid disaster it details a vision of a country in peace time forced to undergo food shortages jammed ports and a lack of fuel and essential drugs unavailable for patients also the reappearance of a hard boarder on the island of ireland with the prime minister vowing to deliver bracks it by october 31st with all without
a deal the line from the top is that the report is merely scaremongering and that it's now outdated as preparations have been ramped up i think some of the concerns about brics have been exaggerated it's the case that there will be bumps in the road some element of disruption in the event of. the document that has appeared in the sunday times was an attempt in the past to work out what the very very worst situation would be so that we could take steps to mitigate that and we have taken steps not just to deal with some of the risks but also to make sure that our economy and our country a better place than ever to leave the european union on top of the 31st. in a bid to reinforce his promise prime minister boris johnson is set to visit french president eduard way back home and the german chancellor angela merkel his message that the westminster parliament cannot stop brix it and a new deal must be agreed if britain is to avoid leaving the e.u. without the government has been putting extra money into contingency planning not
just a few weeks ago the transfer allocated next for 2000000000 pounds to this sort of thing so you can't really accuse them of sitting on their hands they are seriously gearing up for no deal i think the aim is to get people in the european union to take that possibility seriously. despite the swagger the reality for johnson is that he faces a constitutional crisis more than 100 m.p.'s have written to the prime minister calling for an emergency recall of parliament to discuss the situation in opposition leader jeremy corbyn said he would look at putting forward a vote of no confidence in the beginning of september to bring down the johnson government and avoid a no deal brix it with less than 3 months to go the political wrangling continues beyond certainty has left the once stable british economy teetering on the edge of recession and its currency sharply devalued and little respite in order to contain
