it leveled tens of thousands of buildings and go live to the indonesians capital jakarta our correspondent there is scope bring us right up to date then with what you know about this latest tremor. obviously you know a lot of people in in lombok island here in indonesia very concerned about what happened just a few hours ago as you said a six point five magnitude earthquake hitting at about eleven am local time and what we know is we've seen the images we have seen images of landslides as a mountain range the northern part of this is north lone buck a mountain range that houses an active volcano and there are landslides on that mountain range that could be seen taken earlier just a few hours ago on sunday morning now obviously because we've had a string of earthquakes on lone buck island it's a pretty small island people there are already rattled you know yes the one that you discussed the seven point zero magnitude that happened about two weeks ago on
august fifth that killed four hundred sixty people and massive damage half of billion dollars sorry almost more than five hundred thousand five hundred million dollars done in damage obviously people are very concerned about that there are a lot of rescue workers still working on that and trying to repair all that damage so very very rattled nerves on this island but today so far no major damage we've not heard of any casualties just yet martine and presumably there are many people still recovering from the last two weeks ago presumably out of their homes and then camp some receiving eight. absolutely and where this there's earthquake struck today there had also been a weaker earthquake at the end of last month and also on that mountain range i was talking about that there are hikers and workers who were stranded up on that mountain range because of landslides that was at the end of july so obviously people are very rattled there are repairs going on and we know that there are
certain areas certain roads that officials are saying for people not to go down before they can check them out to see what damage might have been done from these landslides but we know that the quake was felt from about for about forty eight seconds depending on how close people were to the to the area where heavily hit so we know that they were rattled to begin with and then with this new one this new earthquake obviously even more so we heard that there are stories of panic people rushing out of their houses once the earthquake hit just a few hours ago fourteen ok thanks for that scott live in jakarta but the very latest on that situation and. now officials in the indian say to care and they say they need more rescue equipment to help to save the hundreds of thousands of people who are stranded many of them in remote parts of the state which is in the south of the country heavy flood flooding has affected carola and monsoon rains are continuing to better the region. the rain does appear to be letting up at least for
now andrew thomas is our correspondent he reports now from van many. this is the sort of scene being repeated right across the state of kara believe it or not there is no river normally between where i'm standing in this far as you can see normally dry land but there is a river about a kilometer in that direction and it has filled its banks to such an extent that it is created this like a very fast flowing body of water coming across whatever you want to call it you can get across that have been killed and even risk being swept away so what's happening mostly is that men putting one around that yellow rope you can see on the right hand side holding a ball. bag on the other and taking it across about five hundred people live in a community of emory over there about two kilometers most of them don't want to leave the elderly have left and young children babies tell you but most want to stay without homes will be on the upper levels but they do need supplies and things like rice drinking water and maids and that's what they saw peroration is doing
here and similar ones hearing right across america. it's nearly submerged in flood water people forced to leave their properties behind you know to to avoid the floods or landslides. this has been the scene for over a week because the southern indian state of kara battles heavy rains. the subsequent floods are being described as the worst in nearly a hundred years. water levels are rising since yesterday the rains have been heavy it's still ongoing. the flood waters and mudslides have killed hundreds of people since the start of the monsoon season in june some parts of the state to receive nearly double the average annual rainfall. in three hundred thousand people have been forced out of their homes. and that has not been easy as walter's flood access points in many areas leaving air evacuation is the only option for language. the
rainfall has led to massive landslides where chunks of the mountain of come down blocking the entire stretch although the clearance team is working to open the road it's unlikely it will happen people have been shifted to camps in the nearby areas . where the full cost is say heavy rains will continue over the weekend but will ease off the words but while that is good news for those affected in kerala the rains will likely be drifting to other states in the country. where the fact is for the future right now the relief effort is in full swing here in the state capital with the far enough south of the state the worst floods for a fly collection points like this one each with hundreds of volunteers full sourcing for donations and putting them on the trucks to send all. their biscuits rice medicines and toiletries and then the irony in kerala right now what is needed most is water under thomas al jazeera to move out on top with care.

a tactic that could become unsustainable if there is spur the instability in turkey's economy. al-jazeera istanbul. the russian president vladimir putin has held talks with the chancellor angela merkel in germany top of the agenda was the war in syria but also what they talked about was russia's influence in ukraine and a controversial gas pipeline project to western europe john mccain reports from berlin. this is the second time that these two leaders have met each other in the space of just three months basically demonstrating the importance of the relationship between these two governments the point to make here is that there is agreement and disagreement there are issues where they find themselves on the other side opposing each other specifically in ukraine regarding the cease fire the minsk agreement that was brokered between these two governments plus the french plus the ukrainian some time ago which the german government which the french government
also believe that moscow really hasn't done enough to ensure implementation of that agreement ukraine matters also to these two leaders because of the north stream to gas pipeline which is being built which is which is in the in the pipeline as it were which will lead to a changeover in the amount in the way that matched. well gas is pumped in germany that's important because at the moment lots of russia's gas is pumped into western europe transiting ukraine the ukrainian government is very worried that that might change and they say this is something the russians must deal with mr putin at this meeting he said no it's an exclusively economic project there is no danger of switching off the taps as it were three ukraine the other issue is syria both these leaders have said they want to see some progress towards ameliorating helping the humanitarian situation there that's the upshot from this meeting. the world's largest annual pilgrimage the hodges taking place in saudi arabia's mecca this week
but as katter faces a second year of holiday and a saudi led blockade many muslims in the gulf countries say they've been stopped from getting to this important ritual lower burden manly reports. this mosque in doha is education city suburb is famous for its architecture the impulse was of the car on the wall and a building that rests on five pillars representing the five requirements of islam. one of these is to attend the hutch pilgrimage in saudi arabia. where split abrahamic asako says the saudi imposed blockade on carter he's been unable to do so i applied last year just two days before the plane. it happened that. i. gave my passport to. the blockade happened just two days later so i was
able to go. from france believes in cutter and is attempted to gain a visa many times over but he's constantly told the same thing apply from your country of origin so the embassy in nigeria you need this time from them but. it was not if i was not able to get the visa versa his key. case isn't unique many worshippers here in qatar face the same. it's not possible to fly anymore it is more like saudi arabian council or the embassy used to apply from so it's not possible anymore this shouldn't happen and for any muslim anywhere in the world i don't think that but something like this has to do with some political issues it's something religious people attending this mosque live in qatar but have come from all over the world many here say they'd like to apply to hard but have found no clear mechanism to do so instead many said they have no choice but to apply for that own country something they say is time consuming costly and against the core
principles of islam. saudi authorities say that cesspool website to handle requests from countries who wish to go to hardship but carter's ministry of religious affairs says the border crossing remains closed there are no planes transferring people from doha and there's no clearly defined way of applying for hodge agencies to organize hutch travel from qatar say they're also be banned by saudi arabia and i've heard. things about going to another country and then applying for from there which is not very convenient for a lot of people prior to the blockade jasmine says she would simply drive to saudi arabia with her family it was only. issue merrick. said it was really fine justin says she's more familiar with saudi arabia than her country of origin and cinci live so close to the border she doesn't understand why it's become so difficult to perform hotch noor about somali al jazeera doha.
venezuelans have been lining up along the ecuadorian border to try to leave the troubled nation but many a stock as a government has tightened the entry requirements venezuelans now need a possible to get in previously they needed the national id. we want them to help us at least with processing the temporary travel card or something at least to facilitate it for us because it was too short a notice we were on the road already when they put out the news just like that boom on wednesday we left and all of a sudden they tell us that today well maybe it was saturday i think it's saturday because i'm still a bit disoriented so geez we would like them to at least facilitate that for us or that the ecuadorian institutions at least help us on that part. we've been speaking to sonya shocked his a latin america analyst she says venezuelans are now finding it difficult to seek help in neighboring countries. we haven't
got that piece of interview but hopefully we can get back to it a bit later on in the meantime let's look at something else because rival protests have been held in his capital for and against the government of danielle all take a the opponents accuse him of using heavy handed tactics to crack down on demonstrations all the three hundred people have been killed since april from the capital managua home and reports. as tends to happen in the canard what went on see government protesters take to the streets those who support the government who so you turn now in full swing and they're here right now to show their support for the president on the it will take a he said that things a back to normal in a could are what they say they agree with what we've seen over the last couple of days is that there is some truth in not there are so many people just starting to return to buzz and restaurants off the months in which people were quite scared to go out at night scared because of paramilitary groups principally roaming around
the streets saying that there's a lot less presence oh those groups in those days the people here say that they have munching that's wall street justice especially in the case of the twenty two policemen that have been killed in the course of the protests among others although . the deaths during this attempted coup are the most unjust thing that's happened to nicaragua a country in peace has been shaken by a bunch of bundles and criminals just a few streets away this is the anti government margin is substantially bigger than the government won the title of this march is it things. they've got naked eye one might be come up other than in previous months give us a calm to not be a rather than contentment they point to who it's the number of people how to relate to neighboring costa rica to avoid what they say is a government crackdown well the people there are in hiding within the country
themselves they say that there's been government repression as. a result of the recent protests but that they're not going to give up equally for a change by calling for a change in government the president done it will take a step down but only a little daniel ortega is a dictator who has done whatever he wanted his reelection returns us to the times of the dictator what we want is a free nicaragua like you can see from these two opposing not just this is a country in which even though the barricades of her books might be cleared out and the government supporting her military groups might not be so hard on the street is still incredibly tense some polaroids. egypt's president has signed a new law which means websites could be blocked if they're deemed a threat to the state the owners of the banned sites may be fined or could go to prison anyone who visits the sites could also be penalized we've been speaking to dalia fuck me who's in the soci a professor of political silence science at long island university. this is more of
the same of egypt's policy of really crushing any voices of dissent or any narrative outside the state of the state dictate what we've seen through this life it indeed does passes that not only will be the blocking of websites that constitute a threat it's this terminology what does it mean to constitute a threat under the new terrorism laws that were passed under president sisi a threat is anyone even insults the state could possibly publish something that is seen as destabilizing to the economy. and so this is more of that legislation that really a chance to target the one avenue left for voices of dissent which is indeed cyberspace if we think about what happened last month there is another bill passed by parliament that was approved by president sisi this is any social media user who has more than five thousand followers on can be placed under supervision included
in this law as well. that any internet provider must actually release information of those who are active on the internet and if you visit these websites even accidentally you can be arrested and fined and so what it creates in society is a level of fear of even this last avenue of dissent cyberspace is now paralyzed. travers a take a look at the top stories here it out is there the indonesian island of lombok has been struck by a magnitude six point five earthquake the quake is centered in the northeast of the island a number of landslides have been reported so far though we've had no reports of injuries two weeks ago a quake of six point nine hit the island it killed more than four hundred thirty people and leveled tens of thousands of buildings. officials in the indian state of carolus say they need more rescue equipment to help save hundreds of thousands of
people stranded in remote areas by heavy flooding the air force has been dropping aid to people have been cut off by the floods the rains continue to batter the region though it does appear to be letting up andrew thomas reports. this is the sort of scene that is being repeated right across tara there is no river between where i'm standing and as far as you can see that's normally dry land but a river about a kilometer that way has spilled its banks to such an extent that the water up here is very very fast like and that's why the roads are right along the right hand side as people walk across with their bags of rice and with bottles of water there's about five hundred people over there most of them don't want to leave their homes are living on the upper levels but they do need help and this is a scene that's going on right across the state of emergency workers initially are trying to secure what's left of the bridge in general which collapsed on tuesday
