12:15 pm
thailand through the course of chews day and you see the circulation again giving some heavy rain for parts of java heading down into a strategy the whole country is on the influence of one big area of high pressure so the weather is looking subtle but it's also looking on the cool side certainly nighttime temperatures going down quite low as the wind comes around from the south so that's what we're looking at during the course of monday want to two showers just developing across interior areas but otherwise fine conditions sydney looking at sixteen perth weather conditions cherry not too bad highs of twenty one but remains particular settled across both islands of new zealand. stories generate thousands of headlines. different angles from different perspectives we. can see the real concrete evidence that russia was responsible for this suffering the spin from the facts that's why i own guns states or the
12:16 pm
misinformation from the journalists will be issues here go far beyond one data mining company and one election with the listening on al-jazeera. welcome back you're watching al-jazeera a reminder of our top stories voting is underway in turkey's high stakes elections that will complete the country's transition to a new executive presidential system president russia type bedouins main rival my arm injury has cast his ballot in his home city of yala. activists in syria say more than twenty five russian air strikes hit the province of there are overnight

12:18 pm
a need is fifty percent plus one so. long can win with fifty one percent all rules with forty nine percent so they're very close. proxy we are talking here but actually not to forget whatever the result probably mr wrong will win but what part of him mr than himself focusing on is the to get the majority in the parliament as you said today the voters were using two separate pieces of paper sheets one for the president or the one for the m.p.'s so mr gone always the ones to win the presidential executive presidential elections as well as try to get the majority in the parliament otherwise system will have some difficulties and the winner faces real challenges as turkey has been in a state of emergency since at a failed coup attempt in two thousand and sixteen the economy is in crisis as well
12:19 pm
but i wonder is foreign policy how high on the agenda of people as they vote is you know turkey's involvement in syria for instance a factor at all in these elections. indeed i mean we should remember all three and a half million syrians turkey and i personally think that they will really well manage the new way found their place in turkish society with not much creating social problems but also of course there is a kind of really an economic crisis walled why this push in latin american turkey. and other countries this is alternately affecting turkey's economy and always in people when they go to vote the first thing in their mind is the what's going to happen with the economy and second we have another very important issue is the kurdish question how it's going to be sorted out and third in my view very very
12:20 pm

hostile european environments make local officials nervous either make it less bigoted then there are many happened because they wanted to fulfill their dreams and go to europe over things that were done a trapped them into many concerned way of phrase but we hope there will never again be an informal camp of refugees and migrants most for the refugees living rough in greece there is not even war so let alone hope they may as well pray because no country in europe will help them now gloriously al-jazeera northern greece protests as in the u.s. state of texas have stopped a bus carrying migrant children. and the latest show of anger against donald trump zero tolerance policy on immigration police were called to a reception center near the border with mexico the bus was allowed to continue its journey border patrol agents didn't say where it was going present trump has
