displacement camps in northern syria some in bridge of a report from gaziantep on the turkey syria border. this is what home looks like today for a mood in 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 and 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 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 fighters surrender the next day
1:04 am
in a statement the rebel group says it decided to withdraw to save lives russia and syria continue to deny that 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 in the nation. some people like primary teacher 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 and how bad that they've gotten us off. that when we came to live there was a war like situation there there's a bombardment we left which are to stay alive we don't want his war again we want to have a normal life 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 review free to say anything about the
1:05 am
alleged chemical attack there have been allegations and denials about tampering with the evidence in duma some members of the international chemical watchdog say they have not been granted access to the site where the alleged chemical attack took place russia maintains that attribute the u.n. which grants access but a week after the incident with the team which does not have the mandate to see who carried out the attack many don't have much hope in what will they find some other job. in the dirty city of border i think is prime minister who has been defending her decision to. join the u.s. and france in launching airstrikes against syria tourism aide told parliament it was about stopping me use of chemical weapons becoming normalised but the opposition says may should have got parliament's approval for those strikes jona our ports. border having faced a barrage of criticism over the weekend to use it made her case to parliament that bombing syria had been both morally and legally justifiable it was not she said
1:06 am
about intervening in the civil war nor 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 a furious that parliament was not consulted first as is the convention in britain since the iraq war in two thousand 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 there is no more serious issue than the life
1:07 am
and death matters of military action it is right that parliament has the power to support or stop the government from taking planned 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 ps 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 all far from it and certainly not protesters outside we've been on the basis of. confabs chemical weapons attack which is without a fight in parliament but i can hardly like the bombing and i don't see any reason for bombing and killing all that right you know democracy like we have to vote for we want a cheese maze not you know give us ways to put the u.k.
1:08 am
government insists there are no plans for further attacks in syria that's presumably will change if there's another chemical weapon attack jonah how al-jazeera london is the us and the u.k. have issued a rare joint alert accusing russia of being behind a global cyber cyber attack that's infected computer was has around the world they say most calls back in hackers who are targeting businesses and government agencies dorothy's in washington and london say the attacks are targeting critical parts of the internet infrastructure they've also warned that the cyber assault aims to support espionage extract intellectual property and potentially made a foundation for future offensive operations well jodi u.s.b. is the chief executive of global cyber risk she says countries only issue such alerts when there are serious indications that cyber disruption could take place this particular alert takes into consideration out of support equipment and old
1:09 am
legacy systems that use this old equipment and therefore the advisory urges people to take note perhaps you need to be made to harden their infrastructure this is usually only done. in my view when they do have substantial evidence it's not something that's done i take in light heartedly. rochelle's began blocking access to the messaging app telegram after the company refused to comply with an order to give security services access to messages russia's f.s.b. intelligence agency says it should be allowed to see the encrypted messages to guard the country against terror attacks but telegram says that would violate users privacy the ruling also means the credit limit itself which uses the app to communicate with journalists will now have to switch to a different messaging service.

as president donald trump's personal morris' been forced to reveal that another of his clients is the fox news anchor sean hannity michael korn 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 call and services or been represented by him but he did seek confidential legal advice from him adult film star stormy daniels who 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 to stop prosecutors examining documents that the f.b.i. seized on raids in his office last week after the hearing adjourned daniels gave this statement. for years mr cohen has acted like he is above the law he has considered himself an openly refer to himself as mr trump's 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
1:11 am
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 well christen slimmy joins us now live from new york hi there kristen and so why is this revelation about sean hannity significant . well sean hannity was one of the reasons that lawyers for michael cohen gave for making this motion to have all of the documents that were seized in a raid of michael cohen's work in the home turned over to them before they were given to prosecutors they wanted to stop these documents from being handed over to investigators until they got to go through them first and they said that other clients of michael cohen might have sensitive information in there that was pretty tack to under attorney client privilege and they needed to review that and they
1:12 am
needed to make sure that the names didn't get out the judge rejected that she released sean hannity's name and denied their initial motion to go forward and hand over this to stop them from to stop prosecutors from getting this information but she hasn't decided. how the information will be reviewed yet attorneys for michael cohen and the president want a special master appointed to determine what information is protected by attorney client privilege before it gets to the prosecutors she's still considering that that aspect of the case if you will going forward so hannity is not directly involved in the investigation in terms of his activities are not necessarily being investigated at this time however it's interesting that a commentator for fox news someone who's a strong supporter of donald trump in his commentary is also using the services
1:13 am
of michael cohen he says it was for real estate dealings and unofficial advice the only other client we know of that michael cohen has had in the last few years has been an r. and c. official a republican party official who he helped pay a playboy model over a million dollars after that model got pregnant got pregnant by him so while the hannity is not directly involved in this case he was the. rounds under he was one of the reasons given by the lawyers to the judge to ask her not to hand over this information to prosecutors i'm kristen of course we saw the. taking also pictures of stormy daniels is this her appearance is it more than just about potential publicity. well she's certainly attracted a lot of that showing up at the courthouse and wherever she goes but remember she
1:14 am
is kind of at the heart of this case against michael cohen even though she wasn't directly involved in the proceedings today she has. sued the president to get out of an agreement that she signed with michael cohen cohen admitted giving her one hundred thirty thousand dollars before the election not to talk about the president she now claims that she had an affair with the president and is trying to get out of that agreement she's suing the president for defamation of character and so what michael cohen is being investigated for now is we should say that president trump has denied this affair and denied any knowledge of the payment cohen said president trying to didn't know about the payment but now his actions are under investigation for possible criminal activity and whether or not any of the steps that he took to protect the president were perhaps in violation of campaign finance and so on and so forth so she is very much at the center of this criminal
1:15 am
investigation against michael cohen and also now has this civil lawsuit against him and the president one other thing i should point out that came out in court today is that in those documents seized by f.b.i. officials are in from a is information about the trump organization itself so also potentially sensitive information there in this documents that the administration is concerned about making public christensen in there live with the latest on that story from new york kristen thank you. still to come. israel's blockade of gaza and political infighting depriving many palestinians of fresh water. on the coffee chain starbucks faces a backlash after two black men are arrested at a philadelphia cafe all that and more when we come back.

hospital or in yemen is that r.l. sixty to seventy percent of the patients samples are either infected or colonized by with the resistant organisms these are the same organisms one would find in major western hospitals but what's surprising is the prevalence and widespread situation we are seeing here in yemen we do believe that the big reason it has come out now is because. the agencies are focusing of course on the verge of the response so there are few humanitarian actors that are working in this cycle of issue so you have a system that has been able to offer proper secondary and primary care so this patient they have different types of needs they also have for a long safe way in our hospital instead of saying five days refuse to be the average they say up to six weeks four weeks sometimes even more isn't that to complete their antibiotic treatment also they require high risk for lover of
