crucial talks between the u.s. and china are into the final day trying to resolve differences that's pushed them close to a trade war the two sides have been meeting in beijing but analysts say a significant breakthrough remains unlikely china in the u.s. of the world's two biggest economies and both are proposed high tariffs on one another's goods over talking to law china correspondent adrian brown a little bit later now ten thousand people in hawaii have been ordered to evacuate their homes after the killer way a volcano erupted steam and love is threatening at least one residential neighborhood the eruption follows a series of earthquakes the national guard has also been activated when i bring in kenneth rubin in honolulu via skype is a professor of geochemistry and vulcanology at the university of hawaii professor killer way is one of the most active volcanoes in the world was this latest eruption anticipated. yes so killer has been erupting continuously since one thousand nine hundred eighty for the last decade in two locations and starting
in a couple of days ago a series of in advance unfolded after which there was a migration of earthquakes into this residential part of the volcano it's what we call down river it's. about fifteen kilometers away from where it had been in for roughly two and a half days or has been a high frequency of earthquakes and the residents in the area have been reporting things like ground cracks in the roads the u.s. geological survey has a volcano observatory there they partner with the civil defense and they had been monitoring and studying it before the eruption actually started about four hours ago it was no way to say if it would actually be interruption or when it would start we have her corded the best in the past what we call an intrusion where magma moves down this rift on and doesn't erupt but all the residents in the area are
aware of the risks this is in the highest hazard zone for killer way a volcano and they were alerted ahead of time that as soon as a rapid activity occurs if they haven't already evacuated it would be a mandatory evacuation and as you say the eruption follows on from a series of earthquakes where those earthquakes them warning sign that the eruption was about to happen. yes in a way so kill the keenly in addition to being one of the world's most active is also one of the world's best monitored and so they're instruments all over the ball keno their measurements make it from space and we we know for a fact that in previous times when we've seen these sorts of migrating earthquakes where they move along the response from one place to another that this often top winds not always but often times the so soon with a new eruption and so we also have times work when it doesn't happen and so this is
why even though the volcano observatory was fairly confident that something could happen. we weren't certain ok and we know that a mandatory evacuation order has now been given just talk us through how this is supposed to work well so this part of the island is not high risk zone it's very sparsely populated it's. urban to rural i would say many of the homes out there are not fully connected to water systems and the electrical grid for instance and so there's a protocol for people who live in high risk zones in hawaii our risks on to include risks from volcanoes also we have tsunami inundation zones along our coast so people who live in those areas become prepared ahead of time bout what the evacuation plans until where the shelters will be set up where they should go they
oftentimes have boxes of their essential stuff that they want to stick with them ready to go and it's fairly well coordinated defense here has a very good system to alert people through multiple means including text messages alarms speakers etc just a final thought from you professor in terms of monitoring killer whale how long is this volcanic activity likely or expected to last. well i will tell you that the best examples we have the last two times were eruptions in this area or in one nine hundred fifty five and the one nine hundred sixty in those two times eruptions lasted one month in three months respect rate and there was a significant amount of outpouring there were homes damaged our infrastructure was damaged we don't know if this eruption will be the same but that gives us an idea of what the potential is in this area it may also in the being something very small but this was out there you know in
a day or so we did we just aren't able to predict that yet but we have an idea that it could be potentially quite devastating if it does continue for a significant america our professor kenneth rubin thank you for talking to al jazeera thank you very much let's get on top story the the trade talks between the u.s. and china there are plenty of other issues the two countries differ on the u.s. as long accused china of flooding the global market with metals at low prices market access is also a problem the u.s. says american companies can't compete with the chinese on a level playing field it's also difficult for u.s. businesses to trade in china and then there's the trade deficit the gap hit three hundred thirty seven billion dollars last year which is more than half of the total u.s. shortfall in goods and services will donald trump wants china to reduce that by one hundred billion dollars that's prost watch on a correspondent adrian brown is in beijing for us now agent both sides have been downplaying expectations of a breakthrough the talks are expected to end in
a few hours time what's your assessment then of how things have gone. well i think we've probably moved back from the brink of being on the dawn of a trade war i think the fact that they are talking means that a trade war is not now imminent but that said we've had no real statements that have emerged during the past twenty four hours with these talks began on thursday afternoon the resume resumed on friday morning but so far not a word all we've had is plenty of reports in the chinese media stressing that china wants to see sincerity from the u.s. side during these talks and that china will not be bullied and let's remind ourselves what the real issues are here daryn i mean it's terrorists china and the united states are threatening to impose huge tariffs on each other's imports that hasn't happened yet but the deadline for those tariffs to be enforced is approaching but then there's the more contentious issue which is chinese trade practices and the fact that the chinese state it's pouring billions of dollars into
industries here involved in what you might say are technologies of the future and the united states says that is creating an unfair playing field it's very difficult for their companies to compete in the global market and then there's the other area of intellectual property rights i suspect that a deal will probably be done on tariffs and that they will put the other more substantive issues to one side for discussions and at a further date but there's also a possibility that if these talks don't achieve anything tonight then they could possibly extend until saturday that's also been a suggestion an age when there are reports that president xi and his vice president will meet the u.s. side is that likely if there is no agreement. i think if there's no agreement then almost certainly president xi jinping will not be meeting the the us side he doesn't want to be associated with you know talks
that have failed in fact president xi jinping has had other things on his mind today namely karl marx the german philosopher who still hundredth birthday is on saturday she jingping addressed a gathering of the communist party in the great hall of the people and this was a chance for president xi jinping to i guess demonstrate that car marks as one of his heroes and it was almost as if she jingping thought was being conflated with the thoughts of karl marx and of course she jingping wants the communist party to remember its socialist roots as part of his efforts to achieve the the great rejuvenation of the chinese nation and part of that rejuvenation at the moment is being tough with the united states not just in the area of diplomacy taiwan north korea the south china sea but also trade with the united states thank you. now the u.s. president has changed his story about hush money paid to an adult film actress stormy daniels says she had an affair with him
a decade ago donald trump denies this and says he didn't know about the one hundred thirty thousand dollars payment but not about it later a white house correspondent can really help get reports. a shifting story from u.s. president donald trump appearing at the white house rose garden ironically on the national day of prayer trump spoke about the importance of face but nothing about a lie he told reporters a month ago aboard air force one you're very. stormy daniels is an adult film star who alleges she had an affair with trump a two thousand and six trump's lawyer michael cohen paid her one hundred thirty thousand dollars during the presidential election campaign to keep quiet and for the first time a member of the president's legal team rudy giuliani admitted the president knew about that payment from overall from the president repaid back to put the president in legal jeopardy because the campaign never disclosed the payment added exceeds
the twenty five thousand dollars legal limit for contributions that that money was not campaign money sorry i'm giving you a fact now that you don't know it's not campaign money but melanie sloan a former federal prosecutor says that legal argument is flawed if they made the payment to stormy daniels with the intent that it influenced the campaign it can be an in kind contribution which also can be a felony given the amount on thursday trump defended the move on twitter saying payments like the one to daniels are very common among celebrities and people of wealth the white house press secretary defended the president's shifting story of the night she'd ever lied to reporters instead suggesting the president had also left her in the dark those first. awareness i had was during the interview last night and i'm giving the best information i have some information i am aware of and some i'm not one i can answer i will but beyond that i really don't have anything
to add the latest scandal follows a shakeup in dollar terms legal team two lawyers have left in the past two months just as there are more questions about another controversy whether or not trump's presidential campaign colluded with russia kimberly help at al-jazeera at the white house well matthew mccovey i because i republican consultant he says trump is convinced the media a biased against him in terms of press conferences in terms of of interviews with media organizations trump is is far behind his predecessors he's done very few interviews anywhere outside of fox news i he's done very very few press conferences that said they are briefing every day that you answer questions there as you answer questions at events he answers questions with foreign. well but time for a short break here now jazeera when we come back the campaign to free an al jazeera
journalist from jail because egypt's crackdown on the media. and a sign of the times the exhibition of the highlights a pivotal moment in france's history the one nine hundred sixty eight uprising more of that stay with us. hello and welcome to international weather forecast as we look at weather conditions across europe main features the circulation of low pressure giving some really heavy showers and thunderstorms even the risk of tornadoes and waterspouts across parts of the mediterranean including corsica sound in the sardinia and through into mainland parts of italy still really well macross twenty nine in kiev in ukraine for northwestern areas it's ok nothing special about eighteen or nineteen that would expect at this time of the year so we head into the start of
the weekend this low pressure system is still spawning around maybe weakening a little bit so the share eight hundred not quite as intense elsewhere we're looking at fine weather for much of eastern europe though this frontal system may just give a little bit of rain for moscow in the form of showers but still quite warm on the other side of the mediterranean for this line of clouds across parts of egypt and through into libya car itself looking pretty woman thirty eight degrees and then as we head on into saturday the circulation of low pressure could well result in some lifted dust across libya in particular the conditions along the coast of both out cheerier and sheena's here into central parts of africa some showers for uganda through tuesday of congo and gabon respecting time personally prevail with highs of thirty.
a breakthrough in the tensions is unlikely both of those heavy tires on each other's goods. ten thousand people in hawaii have been ordered to evacuate their homes after the killer whale volcano erupted stealing money launderers threatening on this one residential neighborhood eruption follows a series of earthquakes on the u.s. president has changed his story about hush money paid to an adult film actress stormy daniels says she had an affair with donald trump a decade ago from now admits reimbursing his lawyer for a payment made to daniels earlier he'd said he didn't know anything about the money . now the red cross is appealing for more aid to help victims of flooding in kenya the rising waters that left at least one hundred people dead and for some two hundred thousand from their homes algis there was andrew symonds traveled to the worst hit area in the village of gus in town county. they've never had much now they've lost everything not just a home and their possessions but the life of their thirteen year old daughter taken
