if their warm welcome to the news hour russia says chemical weapons investigators will end to the syrian city of dumas on wednesday this after it was accused of denying them access the kremlin's also rejected u.s. accusations that its tampered with the site of the suspected gas attack on april the seventh well earlier representatives of the global watchdog the or p c w held an emergency meeting in the hague about the lack of access moscow says the team can't and to do my just yet because of saturday's airstrikes by the u.s. u.k. and france and fighting on the ground. well despite that the syrian government has allowed journalists to enter duma as part of an organized media tour they were given access to a field hospital for medical staff told before says that no patients suffered from
12:03 am
toxic gas in terms of the residents recalled a strong chlorine smell but blamed the attack on rebel fighters too did not include the building where syrian activists rescue workers and medics say more than forty people were killed when this is from duma have told where they felt they effects of a poisonous substance in the attack earlier this month many have now arrived displacement camps in northern syria but with some a binge of a voice from gaziantep on the turkey syria border this is what paul looks like today for his family on april the seventh they were in duma when it was alleged syrian forces launched a chemical attack. i will mahmoud this close to where it happened. there was another missile which landed and then there was a very strange smell the first thing was smoke call it yellow smoke it had a rotten smell it was like a new thing was being tested on us. although they've been displaced the children are finally able to play in the sun without the fear of bombs or near strikes more
12:04 am
than sixty thousand people have been forced to leave their homes in duma but tens of thousands more opted to stay duma is part of eastern which was besieged for nearly five years and bombed into submission over the last two months. the intensity of the last attack made gestural islam's tried to surrender the next day in a statement the rebel group says it decided to withdraw to save lives pressure in syria continue to deny this chemical weapons were used and see the pictures of the bodies and people gasping for breath is propaganda produced with the help of western intelligence agencies the u.s. u.k. and france didn't believe russia or syria and carried out airstrikes on syrian military facilities recuperation. some people like primary teacher ahmed illegally entered turkey to reach safety he doesn't want to disclose his real name or show his face because his family is in damascus and he's afraid they will be harmed if his identity is revealed on how bad that they've gotten us off. that when we came to it if there was a war like situation there and if there's
12:05 am
a bombardment we left which are to stay alive we don't want to face war again we want to have a normal eighth thank god again to turkey it was very difficult to cross but it wasn't impossible. medical sources told us as they were the dogs were family areas under the control of the assad government would be afraid to say anything about the alleged chemical attack there have been allegations and denials about tampering with the evidence in duma some members of the international chemical watchdogs say they have not been granted access to the site where the alleged chemical attack took place russia maintains that attribute the u.n. with grants access but a week after the. incident with a team which does not have the mandate that. many don't have much hope in what will they find. the u.k.'s prime minister has been defending her decision to join the us and france in launching airstrikes against syria to resume a told parliament it was about stopping use of chemical weapons becoming normalized
12:06 am
but the opposition says may should have got parliament's approval for those strikes john howard holds for having faced a barrage of criticism over the weekend to use him a made her case to parliament that bombing syria had been both morally and legally justifiable it was not she said about intervening in the civil war nor about regime change but about humanitarian necessity saving syria's civilians from future chemical weapons attack as a legal basis for military intervention we cannot allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalized either within syria on the streets of the u.k. or elsewhere so we have not done this because president trump asked us to do so we have done it because we believed it was the right thing to do and we are not very many m.p.'s including in her own party are furious that parliament was not consulted first as is the convention in britain since the iraq war in two thousand
12:07 am
and three the leader of the opposition led the charge mr speaker this statement serves as a reminder the prime minister is accountable to this parliament not to the whims of the us president i know it is no more serious issue than the life and death matters of military action it is right that parliament has the power to support or stop the government from taking land military action i to resume a sword to justify her sidelining of parliament last week by citing the need to act quickly to prevent further attack and saying that high level intelligence could not have been shared with them peas in advance the rather damning opposition claim instead is that she rushed to support donald trump and feared that if she'd put it to a vote she'd have lost. the prime minister's performance will not satisfy far from it and certainly not protesters outside we've been on the basis of.
12:08 am
chemical weapons attack weeks without a fight in parliament which i call my heart unlike the bombing and i don't see any reason for bombing and killing there is no democracy like we have the vote for we won and she's a maze not you know universities to put in the u.k. government insists there are no plans for further attacks in syria that presumably will change if there's another chemical weapon attack jonah hill al jazeera london the u.s. and the u.k. have issued a rare joint alert accusing russia of being behind a global cyber attack that's infected computer which is around the world they say moscow is back in hackers who are targeting businesses and government agencies sources in washington london say the attacks are aimed at disrupting critical parts of internet infrastructure have also warned of the cyber assault aims to support espionage extract intellectual property and potentially lay a foundation for future offensive operations well let's talk more about this with
12:09 am
jody wispy who's the chief executive of global cyber risk and she joins me live via skype from toronto to the very warm welcome to the program good to have your company just how significant is it that we've seen this joy public declaration between the u.s. in the u k. it's not very common but occasionally our governments whether it's u.s. and u.k. or us and some other country or just us alone will come out with an announcement that will be an alert that will be supported by government evidence or will they stay is a binding so it is not unprecedented but it is not very common either is this is usually only done. in my view when they do have substantial evidence it's not something that's done and take in light heartedly and of course still the timing being what it is right now could this be linked to the current anti russian strikes in syria when we talk about the likelihood of them having evidence and what kinds
12:10 am
of things are we talking about. well i think i think it could only be linked in the sense. that if russia wanted to do a counter attack and sort of course any possible machines is open to them including cyber attacks and they may know what this technical advisory out there is joining advisory because they wanted our internet service providers our critical infrastructure providers our private sector companies government entities to be on the alert this particular alert takes into consideration out of support equipment and old legacy systems that use this old equipment and therefore the advisory urges people to to take note of patches that need to be made to harden their infrastructure so that it's possible that this could have been put out to probe potentially to get everybody a little bit more up to speed and
12:11 am
a little bit more protected just in case russia would decide to take some retaliation by cyber means. when we talk about protection my think the words used in this statement were that they the u.s. and u.k. say that they are pushing back hard but in reality how can organizations companies public institutions protect themselves. well they can protect themselves first of all by getting out in support of men out of their systems getting rid of old legacy applications that require this use now this is a huge problem this isn't just like oh we haven't patched are our current systems most of that is generally being done the biggest problem we see when we do cyber risk assessments in companies large and small but we do very large companies we see legacy applications those old applications that have been burning around the business for ten twenty years that are being used and they require certain
12:12 am
operating platforms and hardware that are out of support and are not service doing more and this is a huge vulnerability and it's an easy one now to target you don't have to actually you know get into us and have someone click on a phishing e-mail you just exploit this out in support of whitman and so this is a very very large gaping hole and it is a big problem because like i said we see it almost everywhere we go to the west and they're joining me on skype joe the thanks very much for your company. you know russia for them blocking access to the messaging app telegram asked of the company refused to comply with an order to give security service access to messages russia's f.s.b. intelligence agency says it should be allowed to say those encrypted messages to god the country against terror attacks but telegram said that would violate users' privacy leveling also means the kremlin itself which uses the app to communicate
12:13 am
with journalists will have to switch to a different messaging service. donald trump has fired back at james cooley accusing him of committing many crying after the former f.b.i. director accused him of being morally unfit to be u.s. president in an interview with an american network to promote his new memoir called me also said there may be some evidence that trump obstructed justice from washington d.c. elizondo reports. in a remarkable rebuke former f.b.i. director james comey is saying u.s. president donald trump is not fit to be commander in chief he is donald trump unfit to be president. yes but not in the way i often hear people talk about it i don't buy the stuff about him being mentally incompetent to early stages of dementia strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who's tracking conversations and those what's going on i don't think he's medically unfit to be president i think is
12:14 am
morally unfit to be president of the exclusive interview with a.b.c. news george stephanopoulos was part of the rollout of coleman's new book titled a higher loyalty truth lies and leadership in the interview komi says trump lies as obstructed justice and like it's him to an insecure mob boss and he also says russia might have compromising information on the president do you think the russians have something on donald trump i think it's possible i don't know i mean these are more words i never thought i'd utter about a president but it's possible and he accused the president of wrongdoing of a possible crime yeah well obstruction of justice hours before the komi interview aired the president unloaded on twitter calling komi a slimeball slippery and not smart in one tweet trump insists komi committed numerous crimes themselves and needs to go to jail tweeting in part how come he gave up classified information jail why did he lie to congress jail in another message trump tweets komi will go down as the worst f.b.i.
12:15 am
director in history by far trump adding with an exclamation mark for good measure you know more for him is that me in a coma he was fired by trump in may saying it was for his handling of the hillary clinton e-mail investigation but trump later said in an interview it was because of the russian vest a geisha and the firing prompted a series of events that led to the justice department to appoint robert mueller as special counsel oversee. in the russian vest a geisha that has expanded to look into whether trump obstructed justice by firing komi home he says trump privately asked him for a loyalty pledge trump denies this this isn't the first book to rattle the white house in january by year in theory sold more than a million copies in four days written by journalist michael wolff the book revealed salacious details that painted a picture of a white house in chaos khomeini's book oh ever poses even more of
12:16 am
a threat to the white house given it was written by the former director of the highest law enforcement agency in america and based partly off notes that he took after private meetings with the president the book is scheduled to be released on tuesday and certain to set off a firestorm in washington and beyond and particularly with an administration that seems to go from one crisis to another gabriels ondo. washington president trump's personal lawyer has been forced to reveal that another of his clients is the fox news anchor sean hannity michael cohen had hoped to keep it secret but the disclosure was ordered at a court hearing in new york how is he says he's never paid for cohen services or been represented by him but he did seek confidential legal advice from him i don't found star stormy daniels was among those in court to watch the case unfold cohen who allegedly paid her to keep quiet about an affair with donald trump was trying
12:17 am
to stop prosecutors examining documents that the f.b.i. seized in raids on his office last week after the hearing adjourned she gave the same. for years mr cohen has acted like he is above the law he is considered himself an openly referred to himself as mr trump fixer he is played by a different set of rules or should we say no rules at all he has never thought that the little man or especially women and even more women like me. matter that ends now my attorney and i are committed to making sure that everyone finds out the truth and the facts of what happened and i give my word that we will not rest until that happens thank you very much the new york times and washington post of won a pulitzer prize for their reporting on alleged links between russia and donald trump's presidential campaign in new york times also won the pulitzer for public service along with the new yorker covering the sexual harassment scandal

12:19 am
yemen's already fragile health system has been destroyed by years of war but the saudi led bombing campaign resulting in thousands of casualties previously manageable diseases have now reached epidemic levels that year one million cases of cholera were reported as the worst outbreak in modern history that he really usually a treatable infection has killed at least forty eight people across the country doctors are concerned about the over use of antibiotics. in the region and coupled with the i was of injuries poor hygiene the lack of access to clean water to fear disease and antibiotic resistance may spread beyond well and an area as the medical corps donated for doctors without borders in yemen she says it's an issue that submerging in war torn countries across the middle east but we are seeing begin our hospital in yemen is that around sixty to seventy percent of the patients sampled are either infected or colonized by britain resistant organisms these are the same
12:20 am
organisms one would find in major western hospitals but what's surprising is the prevalence and the widespread situation we are seeing here in yemen we do believe that the reason it has her mouth now is because there are agencies are focusing of course on emergency response so there are few if you bought it aaron actors that are working in this type of issue so you have a system that is unable to offer proper secondary and primary care so this patients they have different types of needs they often have prolonged save so in our hospital instead of staying five days which used to be the average they stay up to six weeks for weeks sometimes even more than that to complete their antibiotic treatment also they require high resource laboratories for these expressions to be detected and trained of oratory stuff which is another bailable in the country and
12:21 am
more importantly these antibiotics are quite expensive and the absolute majority of hospitals cannot provide them we have reasons to believe that this is a widespread issue throughout the middle east but specially in areas of prolonged conflict so our hospitals in jordan lebanon syria and iraq have similar reports. clean drinking water is a luxury in gaza underground reservoirs a poisoned and waste treatment plants can't work at full capacity because of electricity and fuel shortages that means sewage is pumped straight into the mediterranean sea israel's ten year blockade on gaza has been blamed for the crisis and palestinian political infighting is making that situation worse and the latest in our series child stratford reports from gaza. no had a little delivers filtered water to thousands of families in gaza with around fifty percent unemployment here he is lucky to have a job the water from gaza's taps is on safe to drink because it contains dangerous
12:22 am
levels of chlorine sulphate. but now he says israel's ten year long land sea and air blockade has made people so poor many can't even afford to pay for his company's better quality water while there are no covers you all know what our business is up to sixty percent people can't find jobs and many of them tell us they can't afford water they say one day when they get money they will pay me back . the lack of money has forced gaza's municipality to halt the services it offers many people use water supplies at mosques where the filtering is more efficient. mohamad alawi and his family live in a shelter refugee camp he says was the only comes on for two hours every three days to get it but i fear we have to do a washing dishes clothes and even ourselves until water comes this is our life. ground water sources in gaza the heavily polluted limited electricity and fuel
12:23 am
supplies mean sewage treatment plants barely work untreated sewage is pumped directly into the sea. and the u.n. says natural on the ground resources are at breaking point more than two million people live in gaza. these rady government says some vital parts needed to build new desalination plants like this one may pose a threat to israel's security so they are banned it's an isolated organization say around ninety percent of gaza's will is not safe to drink but this is one of three desalination plants in gaza but because of the lack of electricity that's available it's only able to operate for around six hours a day. tens of millions of dollars worth of water infrastructure was destroyed during israel's war on gaza four years ago waste water seeped into the ground and
12:24 am
experts say it's too early to estimate the haul that's being done and the palestinian political crisis is making the situation even worse from asa's ruled gaza since two thousand and seven and in recent months the fatah dominated palestinian authority has restricted electricity in gaza to force hamas into a reconciliation deal but the world also need to help the body seems to fix the leak bigger problem politike political situation from israeli palestinian it doesn't help to fix such important challenge which all stick to its hold cation would talk are suffering from. meanwhile many gazans have little choice but to rely on the kindness of water sellers like now who hopes one day they can pay him for the war he brings it all started out as era gaza now though i'll second that and third largest economies china and japan have held their first i level economic talks in nearly a year and talks until killer

12:26 am
fact called i am gay received more than three hundred million views three hundred million before it was deleted on saturday so clearly online there was a lot of anger but as quickly as those posts appeared they were deleted now the company defended its actions by saying it wanted to create quote a clear and harmonious environment online and was simply complying with president xi jinping has new cyber security laws the internet has become a real battleground for the l.g. bt community and president xi jinping appears to have that community in his crosshairs he wants to clean up the internet he doesn't like what he's seen and so i think this this battle is by no means over it's going to continue and continue for weeks months and years to come now the l g b t community here in china says they are still persecuted and discriminated against even though it's no longer illegal to be gay in this country to be
12:27 am
a practicing homosexual now china has one gay parade game archie year that happens in shanghai the next one is in june and now in other parts of the world world leaders take part in those parades it happened with justin trudeau in canada but i think it's fair to assume the for now you're not going to be seeing president xi jinping doing that. i mean in place of fired tear gas and stun grenades as thousands of people demonstrated against the former president's plan to stay in power several demonstrators were wounded in the capital as the anti government march turned violent surrogate star design served as president from two thousand and eight until he was forced to step down earlier this year because of term limits he's now campaigning to be approved as prime minister on chewstick a new parliamentary system of government means the president's will has been made largely ceremonial. well it's a lot smaller still to come this hour the british government apologizes to thousands of british residents who arrived from the caribbean decades ago but are

12:29 am
windy for a time but that wind is just encouraging more heat to come from north africa through spain in towards france so again twenty one in london twenty three twenty five in france and switzerland proper sprigg i think having had a bit of water in the ground everything will turn green there's an improvement also it out here and now we've had rather strong winds and rains last his retains that's on his way out the still the rain potential an eastern area and maybe to his ear but that should all be gone with him for slowly rising by wednesday this circulation here means heat and dust be brought up into libya as well the temperatures still around the forty mark in the middle of egypt thirty six in cairo but the picture really for all of north african as one of the benign weather pattern the blowing dust is a fine bit of sunshine. with its leaders in jail a greek neo nazi party were nice on the lives mothers and daughters of the

imprisoned leaders to represent them. the women behind the fierce some right wing nationalist party going to do not support it but when you say i'm not you know what exactly does it mean it means nationalized golden door in girls a witness documentary on al-jazeera do you support the mosque is. one of the really special things about working for al-jazeera is that even as a camera woman i get to have so much empathy and contribution to a story i feel we cover this region better than anyone else working for it as you know it's very challenging they believe but the good because you have a lot of people that are divided on political issues we are with the people we live to tell the real stories are just mended is to deliver in-depth journalism we don't feel inferior to the audience across the globe.
12:31 am
it could grind on out of our top stories here on al-jazeera russia says it will lessen specs us from the global chemical weapons board still visit the site of a suspected gas attack in syria on what state so far they've been denied access citing security concerns aid agencies in yemen are warning they may not be able to contain the spread of disease as more people become resistant to antibiotics and us president donald trump is personal lawyer michael coleman is been forced to reveal that and other of his clients is the fox news anchor sean hannity the disclosure was ordered by a new york court work or was trying to stop prosecutors examining documents the f.b.i. seized from his office last. let's go straight to kristen for the week joins us now
12:32 am
live from new york hi there kristen and so why is this revelation then about sean hannity significant. well let's step back a little bit here attorneys for michael cohen and for president donald trump were in court today to try to stop the judge from allowing documents that were seized from michael cohen to be turned over to prosecutors they this of course is the investigation that is going on right michael cohen is the president's personal attorney who has said that he paid one hundred thirty thousand dollars to a porn star. to keep her from telling her story a pornstar that says she had an affair with donald trump an affair that donald trump denies he also says that he denies any knowledge of this payment that was made to storm media so this is the background here and they are arguing that the documents that were seized could contain sensitive information for michael collins clients not just donald trump but other clients that he's had including sean
12:33 am
hannity sean hannity of fox news commentator a supporter of donald. that his revelation the fact that he was dealing with michael cohen has come as quite a shock and that is raising eyebrows here because he is such a strong supporter of donald trump hannity has come out and said that his only dealings with michael cohen have been as a friend in an informal situation that he asked him about some real estate dealings he never hired him as a lawyer in a formal sense and he never asked for any action in court that took place today so that's where things stand now in terms of sean hannity and the court proceedings the judge did decide that had it he's name could be released publicly but she has and she denied the motions coming from the attorneys for conan trying today to withhold that information from being turned over to prosecutors however she has yet to decide on another request whether or not to appoint
12:34 am
a so-called spent special master someone who would review review these documents before they were released to the prosecutor so not all of the questions have been asked but a lot of interest and more information trickling out in this case which is against michael cohen the president's lawyer but of course has swept up the president with all of the revelations that are coming out in and chris and we saw all of this the the the. taking. the stormy daniels statements. when she arrived and you alluded to how she is involved in today's hearing tell us more about the part that she's playing. well actually she is not directly involved in what happened in the courthouse today in that she was not a formal part of the proceeding but it is her lawsuit against donald trump she has a lawsuit against donald trump right now claiming defamation of character trying to
12:35 am
negate a non-disclosure agreement that she signed not to talk about her relationship with the president so she was there with her attorney who says that they were very concerned that important documents to their case might be lost if the judge were to grant the request of the lawyers of donald trump and michael cohen so again not directly involved in what was happening in the case but very much at the center of the scandal that's surrounding the president and has prompted this investigation of michael cohen right now there are no formal criminal charges against michael cohen but the speculation in the talk among legal experts is that if he paid this money to ms down with or without the president's knowledge there could be grounds for charges relating to campaign finance and breaking those laws chris and slowly there live from new york kristen thank you and the british government's apologize to
12:36 am
thousands of members of the caribbean community who've lived and worked in the u.k. for decades but who are now being treated as illegal immigrants the problem is said to face as many as fifty thousand immigrant workers who came from the west indies to bring to the second world or ought to be philip. he came to britain from barbados when he was nine years old more than fifty years ago his father had a job at the post office michael married in britain had children grandchildren worked in education thought he was british until the government told him he didn't have the right documents he lost his job as he fought for the right to stay here if well with people could i could know what i would do to take someone and throw them out if they had no. no worse because that is what they did. you know about work what you know what you could do for your dog to help britain being a better place than it was a rival of more than four hundred head to jamaica the so-called women dressed

12:38 am
tell the house how many have been denied health under the national health service how many have denied pensions how many have lost their job this is a day of national shade mr speaker i shan't be a little gentle and admiration for the people who came here from the caribbean and contributed so much to our society in many many different ways and that admiration remains in place i am concerned that the home office is becoming a test become too concerned with policy and strategy and sometimes lose sight of the individual. but who is in charge of the home office when these new stricter policies were being designed yes today's prime minister to resign may so as the public outcry grows there's now a political as well as moral imperative to treat the when dressed generation fairly barnaby phillips al-jazeera london. politicians in france of started debating a new bill which will tighten controls over immigration speed up deportations and
12:39 am
tighten qualifications for asylum critics say the legislation makes no provision to help and support refugees as they try to integrate into society and as natasha but the reports from paris has prompted some people in france to make matter to take matters into their own hands. for a couple of nights each week this is home fizzy most are one published been hosting the seventeen year old refugee from ivory coast in his paris apartment for several months it's a warm place to sleep and a slice of family life for the teenager who's alone in the city. are doing for me is a big deal of people in france don't give anything to immigrants or people who are in need one of his family didn't know me and i didn't know them but he trusted me let me sleep in his home. on the moose's long journey from ivory coast to europe he says he lost a close friend and saw many people die on the mediterranean sea crossing. one public found out about hosting refugees on social media and felt compelled to act.
