thirty seven billion dollars and that equipment from ninety five percent of its gross domestic product the government secured more than seven hundred million in credit from the international monetary fund three years ago the loan was intended to help growth and lower public debt the i.m.f. also imposed tough fiscal conditions including hikes in general sales tax and in bread subsidies a staple of the poor but opponents want these measures hurt poor and middle class families analysts say there is a general lack of trust now people are looking for a paradigm shift they're not looking for changing faces like you know. second one prime minister and getting another one looking for a change in the policies of the policies have been detrimental to the daily lives of the people in jordan and they are looking for changes in these in these policies king abdullah has named omar a former world bank economist in the previous education minister to take over as prime minister but it's not clear if these changes will be enough to calm the rest

. is there rescuers in guatemala searching for survivors after sunday's volcanic eruption that killed at least thirty three people my agency crews are working to find people who have been trapped in their whole lives one village has been buried in lava and thousands of people been forced to evacuate it's the most violent eruption of the fwiw go volcano in more than forty years david morrison has the story. it is really a. sixteen on the middle of the rainy season hitting its lush and green and yet there on the slopes for the volcano everything is just ash and all right everything is color covered with. highway to pass through there has been covered in two different spots and there's a lot of efforts right now to try to get that highway clear to allow some of these emergency vehicles to get a little bit closer to the epicenter of the slide now that's where model and last i
3:53 am
came down and came down like through an entire village i was there you know in one area that was there for only about fifteen minutes to go for bodies out of the house they're going in and just looking for looking for the voluble if they just really bodies that looking for one of the rescue rescuers that i was speaking to was saying that it's very little hope at this stage that they're going to find any survivor it came down so fast and furious and then there's the problem that the law always closed down that in the fall but because of this amount of rain and because of the amount of labs and the sign the exclusion it does channel that completely routing so it came down in an area where it normally doesn't come down and it came down very very quickly and some people were just on able to get out of time and certainly there's going to be a lot of question was really asked the disaster management agency on why those people weren't evacuated earlier.
3:54 am
at least seven people have been killed in a suicide bombing in afghanistan's capital kabul it happened thousands of religious scholars when the big a gathering at the city's polytechnic university earlier then as the to create as the war in afghanistan the taliban to accept the government's peace offer no group has yet said it was behind the attack dead for glasses in kabul and has more. the bomb went off as hundreds of thousands of islamic scholars and clerics were finishing their meeting in what we call the jirga tent the loya jirga tent to really a a conference hall in kabul as they were accident after a meeting where they condemned of the ongoing war as an islamic and condemn suicide bombers a bomber went off at the gate the entrance to that gathering where more than two thousand five hundred religious leaders had gotten together to try and persuade the
3:55 am
taliban to come to the peace table to accept what the president calls an unconditional offer for peace talks now and just as we heard news of that bombing another bombing in town a smaller bomb went off in an age truckload of watermelon that injured three civilians it seems that over and over again we hear these stories we are reporting these stories that either the taliban or i saw are setting off bombs or attacks here in the afghan capital and around the country really a sign of how difficult it is for the afghan government to maintain security at the taleban a growing influence around the country despite fifteen thousand u.s. and nato troops as well as a large force of afghan security forces fighting very hard and losing men all over the country it's been a brutal fighting season and the attacks continue here in the afghan capital. jennifer glass reporting there now don't latest comments on twitter but the russia
3:56 am
probe as triggered i waved from democrats and constitutional lawyers to chime tweeted that he has the right to pardon himself from the investigation is to us of course follows on from comments made by his lawyer would you giuliani he said the president probably have the power to do so let's speak to a white house correspondent can be how can hide there kimberly so they were sound this has been a briefing on this what does she have to say about the tweets right the white house press secretary got an awful lot of questions as at least a third if not half of the briefing questions on this and about the president's tweets of about half dozen of them early this morning here out of washington and essentially what the press secretary is saying is that the president wouldn't need to pardon himself because in her words he hasn't done anything wrong so there she says there's been no obstruction there's been no collusion no need for a pardon so it's a little bit odd then that the president said out this tweet this morning saying as
3:57 am
has been stated by numerous legal scholars i have the absolute right to pardon myself but why would i do that when i've done nothing wrong that's what many people are asking whether or not the president has somewhat of a guilty conscience all those telegraphic in advance of what might come out from the probe into whether or not there's been because aleutian obstruction of justice by the special counsel robert muller can tell you that certainly the justice department has weighed in on whether or not a president can self pardon as his attorneys have suggested in one nine hundred seventy four into richard nixon who of course had to resign because of a political corruption scandal the justice department wrote in a memo then no one can judge their own case a president cannot pardon himself. i'm kimberly it looks as though trumps even go one further as you say questioning whether this is constitutional in itself what kind of reaction has there been stateside i'm wondering what the american public are making of all of this back and forth another back and forth and twitter. this
3:58 am
is certainly making his critics fear eous and his supporters uncomfortable because a lot of donald trump supporters are very staunch constitutionalist believe it to the letter of the law so for the president to make these suggestions that he is above the law is certainly concerning what we can tell you is that when it comes to the u.s. constitution the president does not have supreme authority his powers the executive authority are equal to that of the justice department and that of the legislative branch in other words the president cannot suggest that something is unconstitutional just because it may be investigating him and what how it works is that the president can be removed from office the house of representatives could decide to peach by a vote and then the senate could remove the president so certainly it's a matter of public debate and also if the president were to continue down this road of suggesting unconstitutionality or even self pardoning given the divided political climate there certainly would be unrest in the united states can they how

could there live from the white house kimberly thank you french priests have moved people out of two camps housing refugees in paris authorities say they are offering temporary shelter the home to the hundreds of people affected and it comes to few days after police cleared an even larger camp in the northeast of the city over the past three years speaks of move twenty eight thousand refugees out of camps in paris. the president of catalonia says he will meet spain's new prime minister clinton torah said he's exchanged messages with pederasts anxious on the capital and we feature following last year's unilateral declaration of independence which was declared illegal no date has yet been set though for those discussions david cheeta reports from literate the new socialist prime minister pedro sanchez started his first day in office by welcoming the ukrainian president petro poroshenko to madrid it was
4:00 am
a long standing gauge went on the former prime minister mariano rajoy diplomatic diary close aides for both leaders must have had a long night shoring up new briefing notes after the hoary lost the vote of no confidence. but the real focus of the day was on a prison compound deep in the countryside outside madrid the newly elected president of the regional government in catalonia kim torah was paying a call on five of his former colleagues behind bars awaiting trial on charges of rebellion and sedition but the main question was is the knowledge chance of a new dialogue between madrid and barcelona. we have exchanged messages and agreed to meet as soon as possible it's important for me to emphasize that we are going through an exceptional situation in this country we want to know what type of prime minister we're going to find the one who condemned the independence referendum or and you and i.
