6:07 am
most of the bodies are left where they are. red cross workers and ngos covering them with plasticment they are literally lining the street. what they'll have to do and what they have done in the past is collect the bodies, put them in government places, such as town halls, and put them on display so that the public can walk through did try to identify relatives, friends, because many of these people floated on that tsunami-like tidal surge, and have gone from village to village. it's important that they identify who they are. once that process has taken place, that will take several days, there'll be a mass burial. >> that's the latest live from manila. >> also from manila via skype is justin morgan, the country director for oxfam in the phil

6:11 am
those across portions of vooet nam. the good news is the system weakened fremedzly. as it -- tremendously. it's important to note a week ago the system was in the pacific as a tropical depression. when you think about instances in the history, think about john line, an ef5 tornado. it was an awful storm. it was a horrible system. we'll continue to monitor it. luckily it weakened immensely. back to you. >> thank you. iran's president is speaking out a day after the six world powers failed to seal a deal. hassan rouhani's said rain's right to uranium enrichment were red lines that would not be
6:12 am
crossed. iran reacted rationally and tact fully. both sides were close to putting a standoff but then talks collapsed. diplomats agreed to meet again in just over a week. >> foreign ministers from seven countries and the european union were here. after talks, in the end it dragged on beyond midnight. there was no deal. >> we are on the save wavelength, that is important. that gives us the impetus to go forward when we meet again. we had a very good three days, very productive three days. it's something we can build on and move forward. >> an emphasis on the positive. behind the scenes annoyance and some blame directed at one
6:13 am
country, and it was not iran. the international community was represented at the talks by the p5 + 1, permanent members of the security council and generalie. but the p5+1 became the p5 against one after france raised objections, a deal which the u.s. was probably prepared to scin. >> reporter: did the french ruin your deal? >> not at all. we work closely with the french. we agreed with the french that there were certain issues we needed to work through. we came here with bracketed language, that's the nature of the negotiation. the president repeatedly said, "we will not rush to an agreement." the president made it clear that no deal is better than a bad
6:14 am
deal. i think it's good and we are going to take the time we are taking to make certain we are dotting the "i"s and crossing the "t"s and making sure we have an agreement and look our allies in the face and say this gets the job done. talks are set for november the 20th. there are those in israel in the middle east, and in the u.s. congress that want to kill off any deal that is done. there's frustration, but no doubt progress is being made, after a decade of wrangling getting this far is an achooet. iran's nuclear program has a longer history than you might think. it started in the 1950s, and signed a treaty in 1968,
6:15 am
agreeing to never develop nuclear weapons. an agency was designed to manage the broim and it brought -- program and it brought uranium. after the shar, it was suspended. >> in january of "95 iran announced an $800 million contract with russia to build a reactor at the bushare nuclear plant. iran wanted a nuclear free mideast, satellites snapped photos in the country that the u.n. did not know about. negotiations led to a suspension of iran's nuclear program. as the agreements broke down it restarted. when mahmoud ahmadinejad was elected he supported the nuclear program, bringing it attention
6:16 am
and controversy. despite the tough talk on failed negotiations in geneva. some say iran's improved relations with the west could be attributed to the new president. it's marking the 100th day in office. many believed moderate not just to repair iran's relations with the rest of the world but to fix the troubled economy. we talk about whether hassan rouhani's promise senior creating jobs. >> that man is still out of work. he spent two years searching for a job over the iranian capital. he goes to agencies like this, hoping to help him. he hoped the election of hassan rouhani as president would make things easier. the mechanic had no luck. >> translation: i always wanted to work in a car factory, now
6:17 am
they are firing employees rather than employs people. it's part of the jobs market. let's see what this market will do. >> since hassan rouhani's election unemployment has dropped by 0.2%. officially 10% of iranians are out of work. that number is so low because every uranium over the age of 10 who works more than an hour a week is considered employed. naments say realistic -- analysts say realitily analysts don't have jobs and when they find them the costs outweigh the rewards. >> translation: about job opportunities, yes, there are some. they are not properly balanced. we called job seekers telling them there's a factory that needs something like you. the first issue is about pay. we cann convince people to accept the job at minimum salary. the cost of living and inflation
6:18 am
is high. >> officially inflays is 36%. economists blame government mismanagement and sanctions for iran's economic crisis. for example, in the final 18 months of mahmoud ahmadinejad's presidency the rain yam rial devalued 70" against the u.s. dollar. the rial stabilized in value, but has not improved. blue collar workers say their situations are getting worse, not better. >> translation: the government is supposed ta raise the minimum salary according to inflation, but they didn't. 40,000 workers signed a petition asking hassan rouhani to do it. if he wants to make changes, we workers should have it on the table, but we don't see it yet. >> when he took office hassan
6:19 am
rouhani warned the economic problems, which include removing damaging sanctions would take time. economists agree the problems are too severe for a quick solution. >> unsanctions against rain began in 2006 targetting companies, individuals and banks. one person is dead and many injured after protests turned violent in bank la dash. opposition members clashed with ruling party members. as you can see here. they want the prime minister to step down and are demanding the formation of a caretaker government until next year's election m 18 died in similar protests over the last two weeks. >> the bloom berg administration is asking a federal appeals court to void a decision on new
