9:00 am
hello and welcome to the news hour. here are our top stories. libya's prime minister returns to his office only hours after he was mysteriously inducted. a possible break through in the fight against alzheimerss.
9:01 am
9:02 am
papers from the attorney general to arrest the prime minister. they are from the committee who are rebels they came in and detained the prime minister without any damage or injury. >> let's go straight to the libyan capitol. there for us, we were expected the prime minister to speak. has he spoken. >> he has spoken. he is safe and sound after a couple of hours after his abduction, he has arrived here well inside with the national
9:03 am
congress national congress members and actually head of the national congress members were on site with him. and also a lot of the ministers were also here receiving him. but he did not speak much he spoke about the people -- thanking the people and the institutes local and international institution whose have taken part in his relief. as you know that currently it was actually mysterious, because after his abduction, libya's revolutionary operation earlier and they have abducted on account of bribery and financial issues. they delivered him to the crimes combat in the district, in trip folly, but what -- just recently, they have again
9:04 am
announce -- they are not responsible for abducting the prime minister. the district confirming that he had received the prime minister from the revolutionary operation. which is a little bit strange, and makes me think that there could be some kind of deal that has been sealed. >> strange and very confusing. officials also saying, of course that this was a kidnapping, that they take it very seriously, have they said inning about ares made and an investigation they have opened anything like that. >> they did not mention anything about that, the only thing the prime minister confirmed after his release here in his office, he just assigned the minister of defense to take over the case. and to do exactly why and who is behind this
9:05 am
abduction. >> giving us the latest there on a very confusing developing story. thank you. >> well, a security analyst with the london based research firm i.h.s. global incite, he joins us live now. what does an event hike this tell us about the relationship between the government and these militias in libya. >> thank you for having me. it tells us the government has no control over the country. if there was any incentive for the various militias to hand in their weapons because they liked the prime minister that was elected that insent tiff is now gone. they now know that they can kidnap any elected official. and this is a continuation of the earlier trend we saw when
9:06 am
militias surrounded the general congress to force legislation on the politicalization law. >> our correspondent there just reporting from tripoli, and he is saying that it is possible that a deal could have been broken between the militia and the government. what would a deal like that involve? the militias have a lot of demands and they don't agree on what these are. there has been growing discontent with -- for two reasons. firstly, because he is not able to control their rival militias. and secondly, because he isn't giving them the economic benefits and the political benefits really, that they are all seeking. they tend to represent regions and tend to push for having individuals from their regions from their tribes who are associated with them, to push for these individuals to be appointed to senior
9:07 am
positions. this is part of the insent tiff, but i think this was a mistake by the militias in the sense they had hoped to extract some concessions realizing what a big deal it was, and are glow in the process of denying their involvement and denying that it was ever their idea to kidnap the prime minister. >> indeed, the prime minister has been saying what they wanted was for him to resign. do you think, though, that libya can function like this? with militias in place of government security. >> the best care scenario for libya would be a de facto constitution agreed that keeps these various militias in their own regions and makes them security forces accountable to their own regions. the model that the government is going on with this is to make them security forces reliant
9:08 am
on a central government, is failing because it is encouraging these militias to fight it out in tripoli, and impose their writ on one another in tripoli. this is the best case scenario. the various others involve a lot more militia infighting that leading to energy companies beginning to exit the country, and that leads to the east and go its own way, and either de fact depack sek seeding. >> can the government reign in these groups? how difficult a task is that? >> not in the next year, first off. i think that the government is not able to exercise authority over its territory, it is in the interest of the various militias to hold on to their weapons for as long as possible, in order to extract
9:09 am
political concessions and deter their own rivals. >>ly stop you there, because we can now go to tripoli. this isn't live, but it is the latest statement we have from the prime minister, let's < in. >> this isn't about my specialty, but a position that stands as a symbol our homeland. i pray to save and to guide it forward. i pray that no win citizen faces own ordeal, thank you very much. >> by the libyan prime minister, after very developing new story throughout the course of the day. >> surrounding the release of the prime minister. we can go back now to the
9:10 am
security analyst the london based research firm. i don't know if you heard what the prime minister is saying there, and he had said before also that he hopes that the situation his -- what has happened throughout the course of the day doesn't escalate, but what could be the effect? the prime minister taken from what is a very secure location. what we have seen is that the various militias have broken up into two very broad camps. >> and the other is these
9:11 am
in turn alliance with some of the allies that they had from gaddafi. so some of these of the interior, obviously there are divisions when these camps and this is a very broad generalization. but this kind of incident does make a broader fight between these two camps. much more likely, and it make as confrontation between these groups more probable. this could take two forms really. either a fight for tripoli, with everybody trying to concentrate their forces. or a lot of fighting up and down the country, broken down by regional lines. over regional rivalries and regional issues. we have seen that happening on and off, the fights between the neighbors. all and all it is just an incentive for the militias to hold on for longer and it makes fighting between various
9:12 am
militias around key government paragraph a lot more probable as these militias try to heed these. great to get your thoughts there. thank you for joining us. >> not acting swiftly conditions from migrant workers. visited several construction sites. they described a climate of fear. the workplaces that are better off because it does imply that it is the same. the evidence is complaints forward to us indicate that this work remains deficient
9:13 am
widespread and the client of fear persists. one worker in this situation is one too many. >> the plans and the forms presented by the authorities lack the urgency needed in this situation. according to documents at least 44 laborers have died. they are among millions working across the gulf. >> thousands of people come to the city looking for the employment agencies that sell dreams of big money in the gulf and malaysia. and the crowd there are many waiting to make money out of these workers. we get $100 from the
9:14 am
agency. i see around 60 people a year. some find themselves in harrowing situations. >>they locked me in a room and raped me. four days later he put me on a plane to saudi arabia. >> she became pregnant and the broker promised to bring her back, but the tickets never came. she managed to hide her pregnancy and gave birth in a toilet. she was jailed but returned home with a newborn baby, no money and no passport. >> despite many stories like maya's, they never get shorter, the department of foreign employment has a list of 769 agencies that send migrants to work overseas. >> people don't come to
9:15 am
us directly. migrants also get sheeted because they trust anyone that puts up a sign board. >> just in the past two months over 400 complaints have been registered by returning. >> and the trend of this keeps changing. keep changing on a daily basis in a complex situation. >> and this is where all would be migrant workers come for work permits. >> 25% of that pal's national economy is support bedty money that migrant workers like these send home, and despite the stories of decrete, hundreds still cue up here every day. hoping to to focus their dreams. >> the british government is dealing with it eses own migrant worker. unveil add series of past new works restricting access to healthcare, more on that story coming up, plus, a sinful
9:16 am
remedy, but unard toble to many. many in remote areas for those losing their year sight. >> will be here with all the sports. five people have been killed in a bomb blast in the city of kita, it happened near a police station, dozenings have been wounded. earlier south korea has indicted 100 people on charges of corruption, at ids nuclear facilities. the employees are accused of creating false safety certificates. and nuclear reactors six remain offline.
9:17 am
south korean capitol seoul, harry, this is the culmination, isn't it, of a long runs investigation. how deep does this scandal even go? >> that's right. this has been an investigation. >> orgies for that, we lost our connectio we will try to get back to him later in the show. they were trying to cut the line, the refinery is one of two in syria and is located at the western entrance to the city. >> meanwhile, government forces have been attacking aleppo, this is the scene on the outskirts of the city. al jazeera independently verified these pictures.
9:18 am
well, the u.n. humanitarian chief says about 2 million syrians are believed to be living under siege and beyond the reach of international aid. both rebel factions and government troops are tracking civilians in areas of intense fighting. she said a cease fire is essential. there are two many people in besieged areas that have not been able to reach. and there are terrible stories of those people running out of food, of people being injured who are not able or allowed to leave. the of the first such statement on humanitarian action inside syria, which was agrees about ten days ago, will help us to make progress on this. >> european commission president has promised italy $40 million in extra funding to help new
9:19 am
refugees. also made the announcement on the island alongside italys prime minister. the latest from the island. >> this is the small cemetery on the island. some of the thousands of migrants who in the last 20 years tries december pratedly to reach their shores. >> almost all of them remain without a name, and are identified only by a number and a year they died. but never so many died in one single accident as in last week's ship wreck. there is simply no space here to bury all of them. >> the only way to make room for their bodies would be to expand it. some mayors already offered to bury some of the dead in their towns.
9:20 am
in the meantime, a number of residents have suggests ewreck a memorial here, after as reminder of the biggest tragedy the island has witnessed. al jazeera, london. as promise, we are go back to south korea. south korea's arrest of 100 people. just saying there is this the culmination of a long running investigation. and just how deep this scandal goes. it does go back to november last year. the first of two incidents in which fake security certifications were found in parts used in nuclear reactors and there was a second incident, a more wide ranging one involving electrical cables. which happened in may. the 100 indictments
9:21 am
announced on sunday. but they do include some extremely senior people among them the former chairman of the nuclear power company, which runs south korea's 23. >> to have these fake certificates they have investigated thousands of these certifications and found that about more than 1% of them have been fakes in this way, so i think people will be concerned to know is it just about the reactors are they operating reactors which may have these fake part inside of them. >> >> certainly the polling has shown that faith has
9:22 am
been deteriorating. they found that more than 70% was safe, two years later in november last year, that figure had halved to 34%. obviously in the two years the disaster japan has happened. over a certain period of time, mainly last year in the oldest station, there was a human error which led to the cooling to that reactor being stopped for more than ten minutes that was covered up for more than a month. so there is a lack of faith, quite widely but at is same time south korea consumes an enormous amount of electricity. about a third of the balance of electricity generation is from nuclear power. the government here wants
9:23 am
to double that to about 60%, by 2030, and become a top 3 ex-porter of nuclear technology to the rest of the world. i think today's investigation, the results announced today shows it has to gets own house in order. >> indeed, thank you, harry. >> now scientists in the u.k. say they are a step closer to creating a drug that could prevent alzheimerss. researchers say the degenerative condition is likely caused by a build up of abnormal proteens in the brain. they are testing a drug that would prevent the formation of those proteins. scientists say there have been positive results in preliminary tests on mice. well, the scientists looks a the root cause of brain diseases including alzheimerss and park kin sens. clumps of abnormally shaped proteins that develop in the brain. when they do appear, the body often reacts to them by killing off the nebraska cells in the effected area, and this
9:24 am
leads the patient with loss of memory and function, the researchers have shown that by giving an experimental drug, they can stop the body from attacking the brain cells. for more on this. great to have you with us on this news hour. time wise, how close are we to having a drug that could prevent alzheimerses. >> well, thes a very good and hard question. i think we are certainly encouraged by these results. and these should lead to more detailed studies i think. further studies in mice and then studies in people. i think we know from experience, this can take a long time, and i don't think we will know whether this approach will work in people for maybe a decade. >> are you encouraged by what this research has shown so far? >> well, we so desperately need treatments for some of these very cruel damaging diseases like alzheimerses, park kin
9:25 am
sens and so on, that i think anything in the right direction is certainly lucked. i think it is important we are talking about this important scientific finding but we must always bear in mind, that it could be a long time before we get any success in patients and we know this is very difficult and unfortunately many attempt dozen charges fail. so we have a long way to go. >> could this research help find cures or prevent other degenerative conditions. >> well, i think that's one thing that is very interesting about this approach. the research is focu focusing -- the common that potential mechanism which can be common. to a lot of these illnesses. >> parkinsons pro i don't know disease, so i think that's where some of the excitement is, but again, we need to establish this first, at the moment this
9:26 am
is only hypothesis. >> very interesting stuff, thank you so much for your time. >> thank you. >> now the weather, what is the late esfor the drop sal systems headed for end yeah and the tim means in. >> not looking too good. they are both ramping up, they will both cause widespread flooding as they go on through the weekend. here we can see our tropical cyclone continuing to intensify. it is making its way further north wards and westwards and we are still seeing winds. and those winds will get stronger, it will push up into southern parts as we go on through saturday. and that is when we will see the really heavy rain pushing its way through, the northern frank of the system, quite a big storm surge coming in as well. two to four meters of -- as the storm sucke surge my
9:27 am
in. there you go, ill still stays pretty disturbed and that can push us further north as we go on flu sunday. in the case of the philippines this one will hit earlier. some of is values on those winds is moving to the northern parts of the philippines. looking at sustained winds at 140-kilometers and rising. that will continue to make its way further, some of these areas can see three-millimeters of rain by the end of the weekend. >> thank you. now, the french government has announced it will be significantly cutting military spending. the defense minister visited troops in eastern france from there, emma hayward send us this report. >> the troops here are being put through their paces. we are in a place around 20 minutes from the german boarder, now this
9:28 am
is home to around 1,000 servicemen and women. many who have been involved in operations in places like jordan, and also where both recently in lebanon. now the visit by the minister. 8,000 job losses were announced for next year. the troops here how that will effect them. but the announcement begs a bigger question, how will france hope is a few years time has to be involved again in a big military intervention in a place like marly. >> emma hayward there, now it is day 10 of a partial u.s. government shut down, coming up we will tell you how the deadlock in washington is effecting farmers thousands of kilometers away. plus. the global photography project that celebrates extraordinary people who lead ordinary lives. details to come. blame
9:29 am
9:30 am
>> hello again, you are watching al jazeera. libya's prime minister has returned to office just hours after being abducted at gun point. he was taken from his hotel room in the early hours of thursday. and international labor delegation has criticized. the international building and woodwork organization several 2020 sites describes what it
9:31 am
says because climate of fear. south korea has indicted 100 people on charges of corruption at its nuclear facilities. the employees are accused of creating false safety certificates. the british government says it is standing by its promise to reduce numbers of foreign migrants. proposals before parliament will cut access to free health care and housing. the people who can't prove they have a right to stay in britain. opponents say it may put lives at risk. florence lee reports. for nearly 70 years access for health care is one of the things britain has been most proud of. helps migrants with health issues they reported that doctors are increasingly demanding a passport and proof of resident before they agree to treatments. as a result, they say people like this young man from vietnam are unable to see a doctor. in some cases the results
9:32 am
are life threatening. people are pregnant are not getting prenatal care until very late. there was a woman that gave birth on the floor of a hotel. >> things like this have happened before the bill goes through parliament. under the plans some migrants would have to pay upfront into the health as much as, more dramatically, the same legislation would deport people committed of a crime before they have the right to appeal so they can't put down roots and then claim they have the right to stay. the current government has promised from the start that it would cut migration levels to the tens of thousands and clearly you can't do that would trying things that have never been attempted before. of course many people say that it is not very liberal, that migrants are a boone rather than a burden, the government
9:33 am
says it is not fair on taxpayers to keep supporting people that don't have the right to be here. >> widespread public mood. >> most people who are out there that are hard working and paying into the system, they will say it is not fair that people can carry on living here. that people can come in and use our public services like the health service. it is a national health service, not an international health services. >> . >> the government is trying to break a consensus around the entitlement for all regardless of status of -- in the u.k. actually seeing a much more devicive policy when it comes to accessing services employment and opportunities in the u.k. that are resulting in creating second class today. >> nor is it clear --
9:34 am
what sun deniable though is that many migrants are being sent a message that britain is less opened than it has been in the past. in that sense the government is already getting what it wanted. lawrence lee, al jazeera, london. >> the u.s. state department says the interim government must show progress towards demock six if it wants funding to resume. the u.s. secretary of state says the suspension of military aid to egypt does not mean that relations between the two are being cut. until now the u.s. has been spending $1.3 billion each year, be uh that kind of money isn't what it used to be. when egypt signed a peace deal, it's total budget was $1.8 billion. financing what about 72% of egypt's military operations since then the cost of vital military hardware including tanks
9:35 am
fighter jets has soared. but today, the budget is around $4 billion. of which the u.s. only pays about a third. the rest is financed by the army's own business interests including tourist resorts factories and farms. a journalist in the middle east analyst, and he says the cut off is just a symbolic gesture. >> it's linked more to the human rights abuses that are being carried out. the crack down against supporters. and the most direct way of doing that is to cut aid to the institution that is committing these abuses. that said, it's a limited cut in aid. so it is really just a slap on the wrist, rather than a major warning. and it's not going to have much effect on the military, because it is
9:36 am
riding a wave of popular support. across the spectrum, so i i this the u.s. in the case of egypt is damn if it does, and damned if it doesn't. it is accused of taking sides or not doing enough. whatever action president obama took would be very inetech churl. >> u.s. president is due to meet republican leaders at the white house to try to bring an end to the par usual government shut down. the u.s. is also just a week away from a crucial debt line, the debt ceiling -- if the debt ceiling isn't raised the u.s. could default for the first time. serious situation here. how are those negotiations going? the treasury secretary is giving evidence even as we speak, and he has warned that any default with failure to reach a deal to raise the debt ceiling will have serious implications for the united states economy. and therefore, by extense
9:37 am
for the world economy. some republicans are saying look, if we don't start, we would immediately be in default, we could do some sort of deal in the longer term, but there is no immediate pressing concern. what other financial experts are saying this is a hugely unpredictable area. ronald ragan warned against it when he is president, so he is saying please don't do this because we don't know what the consequences will be. but there's a real concern that the recovery they are begin tock see that could be tanked if they decide not do raise the debt ceiling. there are many that are weary of this, but they also want to see if they can get a longer deal. so there is a possibility that could take us up to thank giving a big holiday here in the u.s. and that could give both sides to reform the tax code and perhaps even spending cuts. it is really just delaying it for another six weeks so that is possibly one way out of
9:38 am
this -- possible trouble spot for the u.s. government finds itself facing in a week. >> what are some of the other ideas because i know a lot of people have been speaking about what can be happening behind the scenes to try to get the u.s. out of this mess. >> well, of course there are these problem. also there is the government shut down where ten dainties the shut down -- for the last ten days they have been trying to tie in any deal into doing something about obama-care, delaying it for a year, to then effecting the smaller minor points and that seems to have disappeared from the dialog. and p pas part of the reason for that could be a new opinion poll, which says that the approval ratings for republicans in congress is 28%, that's the lowest it's been in 20 years. in fact, the lowest since they started asking that
9:39 am
question in these type of polls. so republicans obviously are very concerned and decided to go down one rout to try to stop funding the government to try to win concessions on obama-care. and that has failed. failed spectacularly, so new they have to do some sort of deal that saved face. they will be meeting with president barack obama in the white house later on thursday. he invited every single republican congressman, but they decided it would really just be the leadership of going to the white house, so that discussion will take place in the next few hours and that may give the opportunity for some sort of deal. but i wouldn't hold my breath. >> all right, we won't. with the latest there, thank you. >> now, the closing of many government offices is having an impact beyond washington. as allen is saying there, farmers are among those whose plans are being hit hard. more from coughington in the southern state of
9:40 am
georgia. >> in central georgia, hundreds of miles from the partisan politics of washington, tending to his farm, and worrying about the grid lock in the nation's capitol. >> they can't come to a common ground, that's what i don't understand. it's frustrating. >> galaway farms wheat and soybean, he also herds over 200 beef cattle. he relies on daily reports from the department of agricultural to keep his farm competitive economically viable. but now when he goes to the d.o.a. website, he sees this. >> the u.s.d.a. being closed has effected us because we utilize that organization to get a lot of statistics and a lot of information to where we can make plans for whatever farming or crops we are going to plant for the next year. >> and there are many farmers that are awaiting checks from the department of agriculture except the issue is the department of agriculture is closed because of the shut down and that's a
9:41 am
big problem for a lot of them looking for funds to finance their future. >> since local farms have been shuddered farmers cannot apply for new loans sign up for acreages or receive checks for programs they are already enrolled in. last year georgia farmers got over 150 million-dollars in federal subsidies a point not lost on the president tuesday when he blamed republicans for delaying federal farm aid. >> you have farmer whos are waiting for loans right now, they can't be processed. the republican party says party that looks after farmers i happen to disagree. >> here farm hand is getting ready to plant next year's wheat crop. but without government reports on the future's markets he is blind on exactly how much to put in the ground. he thinks the folks in washington just don't get it. >> one word, it's selfish.
9:42 am
being very selfish, not considering other people. >> when you are trying to plant a crop, we aren't just competing with our neighbors in agriculture, we are competing with you remember familiesers worldwide. >> as galaways winter hay grows so does his anger. with compromise as close as a field of dreams he is ready to plant his winter wheat, and saying he is giving his congressman next week before he called him with an ear full. covington georgia. >> so much more to come on the news hour, including chicago and st. louis. came out swinging, in the national hockey league.
9:43 am
9:44 am
raised doubts about efforts to make workplaces safer. on tuesday's seven people were killed and dozens injuried in a blaze on the outskirts of the capitol. the factory supplied garments to leading u.s. and european retailers. despite international pressure, not much has changed. >> late tuesday night at a factory on the shout skirt of the -- many of the factories workers have already left for the day. which is why the death toll was low. those caught up in the blaze are thought to have been working overtime. firefighters worked throughout the night to douse the flames. parts of the two story building were still
9:45 am
shoulders late into wednesday afternoon. because the place is still being investigate the factories. >> bangladesh is the second largest garment producener the world, but safety standards are inadequate. fires and accidents are common. monitoring and enforcement by authorities only serves to heighten the problem. last november, over 100 people died in afire at another clothing factory in the capitol. and in april of this year, more than 1,000 workers died when a factory collapsed. a trade union official say safety issues were clearly ignored. >> we do not want to see factory fires any more. >> no more garment deaths. >> they were inadequate safety measure in this factory. >> some workers we spoke
9:46 am
to say water shortages and lack of nearby fire station had allowed the blaze to escalate and get out of control. >> the entire nitting factory was burned in half an hour, the hose didn't work because there was no water. >> dozens of international retailers agreed to conduct inspection at which their goods were sold with the cooperation of bangladesh government. but so far there's nothing concrete or substantial to show for it. bangladesh remains in the international spotlight for its poor safety record, and tragedies continue. >> the world's leading cause of preventable behindness. it is treatable if caught early enough. yet millions of people still lose their eyesight to the disease. nicklas reports from one of the worst effected regions.
9:47 am
>> an infectious disease that had left her nearly blind. but this is not a hospital and he is not a doctor. her happeneds are in the hands of a technician from the health ministry. >> it just requires proper training. >> outside are many more waiting to be treated. >> this disease has not just taken my site, it has taken my ability to work on the fields. >> they have to help 24 hours a day. >> it starts with an itch. highly contagious, it is passed on through the mucous, skin to skin contact and flies help to spread the disease. there are drugs available to treat it, but they are unaffordable to most. >> the united nations called it a neglected tropical disease, that's because it is easy to prevent and to treat, and
9:48 am
yet currently across the world, 40 million people are losing their site to this disease. >> it's commutes that don't have enough access to clean watt they are are most effected. watching hands and faces will prevent the illness from spreading. >> this isn't a medical problem it is an issue of development. we must increase the living standards effected by the disease. in fact, tackling poverty is the solution. >> it may make people blind but it is not life threatening. certainly not in west african countries that are fighting multiple diseases. only 30 -- nicholas al

9:52 am
infrared cameras. earlier we spoke to david james, a sports engineer who despite recent problems that he insists that technology will remain a big part of sports. >> there is no question that science and jieing that are really critical to the evolution of sport, and sport is many ways dominanted by new ideas. and technologies really allow sports to evolve, and to do new things and that constant state of renewal that constant evolution is what makes sport, or keeps it relevant in our modern world, so evolutions is broadcasting -- increasing the enjoyment for spectator, but also increasing performance for the athlete and can reduce injuries. it is very very close relationship between technology and sport, and it is not going to stop. >> federer has been knocked out in the third
