and. on counting the cost. on economics make it the most profitable company in the world. trade is influencing the prices. plus one hundred days of the gulf crisis we look at how the economy is very. counting the cost at this time. ma says it is dissolving its government and gaza shaking up the palestinian political landscape. and we shall carry this out zero life on doha also coming up. as the right hander
10:01 am
crisis grows bangladesh places a new restrictions on the growing refugee population. at least thirty six demonstrators from burundi are killed by troops in the democratic republic of congo . and an arrest following friday's attack on the london underground the threat level remains critical. palestinian group hamas which controls the gaza strip has agreed to hold talks with its rival the fatah movement hamas released a statement saying it is willing to end its feud with which controls the occupied west bank has pledged to dissolve its administrative committee in gaza and hold general elections two parties have been at odds for a decade after fighting a war over cars and two thousand and seven fossett joins us live now from west roseland with the latest on this is a pretty big development harry what do you know. well that's right it's
10:02 am
it is a pretty major change in in stance by hamas won the has been brewing for some days there have been reports and indeed hamas has been saying that it's it's willing to take this step but this is the official announcement of it and it comes after a long series of talks with the egyptian government in cairo the fatah delegation was having talks there on saturday understood still to be there as well so this really is contingent it's hinged on this new relationship between hamas and egypt which has come about since may really when hamas changed its that the language of its charter. disassociating itself in not so many words from its relationship to the muslim brotherhood which is obviously something the c.c. government of egypt is is extremely against any kind of. feeling that hamas is part of a wider muslim brotherhood regional movement so that seems to have paid some dividends
10:03 am
egypt has been allowing fuel into gaza there have been parallel talks to these ones about another kind of arrangements involving a former fighter figure mohammad dahlan now we have these talks more broadly about palestinian unity government saying as you have just said that it will dissolve its administrative council it's willing to have a consensus government again in gaza and hold general elections as well a lot now hinges on exactly how fattah will respond to all of us so yes exactly all and there all these developments any statements that there is still a big gap between that and all of this actually happening right here. that's right what is is worried about is exactly how this will play out in practice we've been speaking to the secretary general secretary of the central committee.
10:04 am
to brother and he says that fighter is one hundred percent committed to any progress but it is up to what exactly happens on the ground over the next week potentially in terms of a consensus government of more and more fattah more palestinian of involvement in the way that gaza is run how that all plays out we also have to remember that mohammed. mahmoud abbas is about to meet donald trump in new york as part of the u.n. general assembly this week on wednesday. donald trump just a few months ago was in the region labeling hamas a terrorist group along with several others the kind that needed to be driven out of the countries of the middle east so an official agreement between the palestinian authority which is obviously courting more support from the trumpet ministration at this time could be extremely sensitive we also have to remember that there have been many attempts to get a reconciliation between hamas and fatah since two thousand and seven if you just
10:05 am
take one in twenty eleven there was a big agreements in cairo lots of talk about turning a page about moving on from that the black divisions of the past and that collapse within a few months so this is not even at that stage yet it has a long way to go before any success that had occurred here in any reaction from israel yet. not that it's not that we've seen it's in the past certainly benjamin netanyahu has been extremely critical of any kind of burgeoning strengthening of ties between fatah and hamas in that twenty eleven agreement for example he has said he said that it was a terrorist organization now dominating at least having heart of the palestinian. governing or authority one which in his words had praised osama bin laden and called for the destruction of the state of israel now
10:06 am
a lot of that language has of course changed since fatah made its announcement since hamas rather made its announcement in may about changing the language of its key documents but it's unlikely that israel will will certainly welcome a fully formed and and agreed upon reconsideration between these two parties very faucet life for us and less troops on thank you turkey has call the plan for a kurdish referendum on independence in northern iraq an issue of national security the prime minister banally else from says that vote is a grave mistake the kurds control a large part of iraq along the turkish border a regional government based in appeal has scheduled this and dependence for september twenty fifth for its part baghdad says the kurdish leadership is playing with fire thank you less has announced tough restrictions on the movement ever head to refugees crossing over from me and maher the government is setting up a new campus to house more than four hundred thousand refugees who have fled

10:08 am
a strategy very controversial strategy i would say in a car to move them to a isolated island which is prone to cycle on and all of them that your natural disaster now in the long run bangladesh and diplomatic front would want to pressure me on my to take back this ring but on the other side of the broader the man my government would probably risk them moving back because they've already started mining there and fencing those places most of their own thing as look and talk like bangladesh is in the border areas you cannot distinguish them that don't have documents to prove that they were going guys who crossed over a very precarious situation for both sides unless the diplomatic move which is so far been talk and brinkmanship is able to put that kind of pressure on me on my chances most of the rowing guys will remain a stateless people in this side of the border in bangladesh as senior fellow at the center for global policy he is also the author of the right hinges inside me and maurice hidden genocide he says bangladesh is lacking the resources to build enough
10:09 am
homes for the refugees at the border. well the latest numbers from the united nations and ticket that over four hundred one thousand people have no cross the border over the last couple of weeks that's approximately eight hundred thousand every single day or one thousand pair our system plea norway that bangladesh can absorb those kind of numbers particularly the fact that bangladesh was already hosting four hundred thousand going refugees so they're essentially have a very ambitious and in many respects on the left they plan to use two hundred two thousand acres of land to build the fourteen thousand room along with it in ourselves in the treaty one of the purposes of this ambitious plan is to ensure that there will hinge i do not leave those camps what we have at the moment are will hinge our refugees trying to melt into the population and what bangladesh has enough if you politicians in one thousand nine hundred eighty to grant nor do hinge our deputy status because they want all of those who are in java to one team sooner or later to be the patry to get back to myanmar. and the united nations has called

for an investigation into the killing of thirty six per indian demonstrators by soldiers in the democratic republic of congo fights broke out with congress troops after a group including burundi in refugee stormed the jail and common jala east and east of the country they were attempting to free four men and help for deportation the u.n. says at least one hundred were wounded and that pilot's license turns as a director of the congo research group at new york university center for international cooperation and says as a baker political picture taken center. it must be said on the issue of whether these people were refugees or not most of them were not living in a refugee camp they were staying in host communities most of the people apparently were of the socio ethnic group. many tutsi. now have gone over towards the opposition although it's a mixed picture and burundi. and so it's possible that some of those refugees felt
10:11 am
that they were being targeted by the burning government that want to go back and at the congolese government they collaborated with for the government say back in general in the past several years the congolese government has been a friend of the government in fact as he saw the president early as come under increased international criticism of the congo as one of its one of its remaining allies in that and so it's interesting that this is happening at the moment in the eastern congo there have been accusations in fact that some of the people who carried out the killings were not on the lease but actually and soldiers dressed up in call these uniforms and so as i said it's a confusing situation but a very great while. more than thirty people have been arrested in the u.s. city of st louis in a second night of protests against the acquittal of a white former police officer who shot a black man and killed him police fired tear gas at demonstrators who smashed windows as they moved through a suburb of the city jason softly was cleared of first degree murder for killing

anthony lamar smith and two thousand and eleven st louis maryland who sends house was targeted by protesters. unfortunately we did have incidents of sporadic violence and vandalism and that will be the lasting images written about in the newspaper and played over and over on t.v. . as i've said over the past several days we will protect the rights of people who protest demonstrate and have their opinions heard we draw the line though of violence we understand the desire to disrupt but we do not understand and will not understand the does the desire to for destruction or for harming people we will protect all of our residents. cuba has released a video of what it says as looting in the wake of hurricane it shows people carrying goods from a government owned store and got into the store through windows broken in the storm at least ten people died in cuba when army devastated parts of the island last week

. you can't place for investigating whether more people were involved in friday's bomb attack on a london underground train that entered thirty people a house in a town southwest of london was searched after police arrested an eighteen year old man at a port and the south of england on terror personnel have been deployed to protect key sites across the country and reports. a day after the attack on a london underground train police raided a home in the suburb of sunbury police call this a precautionary measure after the arrested an eighteen year old man in the port of dover where passenger ferries to france operate they called that a significant developments in the search for the person or people who planted the device and we've got a full rights of accounts terrorists place not what we've got our colleagues in the intelligence agencies and government helping in every way they possibly can we're making some very considerable progress you would have seen the announcement of and
10:14 am
i rest there on in relation to this and so we will continue to work as hard as we can to make sure that we reduce the threats in this country i'm glad we know exactly who it was who did this whether there's anybody else involved and just try to reduce the risk as possible sources we possibly can police have again appealed for information and images that might help them and despite the arrest the threat level stated critical following a meeting of the government's emergency cabinet it means an attack could be imminent an indication police believe they could be suspects or possibly materials related to friday's rochelle bombing still at large the heightened threat level announced on friday night means hundreds of armed police are being replaced by military personnel so they can be deployed on the streets and on public transport across the u.k. and while the metropolitan police are urging people to carry on as normal they are also reminding them to stay vigilant based on previous attacks those measures are
10:15 am

10:16 am
a little bit further towards the south there are some places though where we're clinging on to the summery weather mostly over parts of spain and portugal look at that twenty six in madrid that's fairly pleasant and then the sunny weather is also extending down into the southeast corner of europe with bucharest all the way up at thirty three that's like it still going to stay hot down in the southeast corner even as we head through the day on monday but that system gradually breaks up as it works its way southwards and instead we're seeing this area of low pressure a bit further north and that's going to be giving us some rather wet and windy weather here meanwhile in the west still staying cool with london and paris both getting to around seventeen degrees now for the other side of the mediterranean here we're seeing some slightly cooler and now as well so for about no higher than around twenty two or twenty three degrees as we head through the next few days it is a little bit warmer in tunis but still our temperatures generally hovering around twenty eight thirty for the central belt of africa this means a very sharp showers recently and the latest of those just working its way steadily towards the west. with.

10:24 am
taken for. the contractor will get two years to d. silt and up root the willow from there one square kilometer if the scheme works the government will extend it it'll take decades to finish perhaps not enough time to beat the next extreme weather event burnitz with al-jazeera. in the kashmir valley . we're going to bring you some breaking news an update to the investigation into the bombing at the parson's green underground on the district line yesterday there has been another arrest this is a second arrest this information coming to us from the metropolitan police department in the u.k. so there was an arrest of course yesterday of an eighteen year old and then a further raid on this house in this town southwest of london so this is now the second arrest involving the investigation into the bomb attack on the district line yesterday and london we'll continue to bring you more information as the investigation and the news progresses on that. i kingdom in northern nigeria is
