camera well now reports without borders does rank egypt one hundred sixty one out of one hundred eighty countries on its press freedom index they say at least thirty one journalists a currently detained there including al jazeera journalist mata saying his attention has been extended for the sixteenth time hussein has spent six hundred and twenty seven days in prison without charge he's accused of broadcasting false news and receiving foreign funds to defame egypt's state institutions allegations he and al-jazeera strongly deny the network is demanding his immediate release well if you are currently in egypt we do want to hear from you say get in touch with us on any of these platforms is the hash tag his great thanks for here and for that is that a very powerful documentary for use or watch it down to zero dot com it is simply called journalism is not a crime in the hussein story it's told by his colleagues here at al-jazeera primarily. shami who himself was jailed in egypt for spreading false news as what
they said it's from al jazeera world you find it in the documentary section i would really recommend watching this great insight from the people who know that hussein the best in iraq the parliament is holding an emergency session trying to work out how to contain protests in the city of basra just over two hours ago another curfew was imposed weeks of protests over failing government services and unemployment and corruption have spiraled into this very violent few days several major buildings set ablaze on friday night that included the iranian consulate in basra earlier in the week a state t.v. building was also burned at least twelve people have died during these demonstrations more from rob matheson is reporting from baghdad. the city of basra in iraq is now under curfew but iraqi politicians are still struggling to find some sort of solution to the violence that has hit the city over the last few days but today's meeting of the iraqi parliament is like every other meeting of this iraqi
parliament that have been accusations there's been finger pointing and there's been a lot of blame the but there's been no tangible solution to the problems that the city of basra is facing the reason for that is very simple since may this parliament has effectively been blocked it's been deadlocked and that's because there was no result of the election that happened in may that everybody could agree on therefore nobody up until this point has been prepared to agree on anything this is made of course the people are very angry because they are hoping to get money from the government to the prime minister that all the body has promised them will help them through the circumstances that they're facing but as the arguments go on in the iraqi parliament that money too is deadlocked now the big concern for the people in and around basra is how they are going to react to the security forces have been told to move in and contain the violence by prime minister body but he
has warned them not to use live ammunition against the protesters but interestingly there is normally a social structure of tribal elders in and around basra and throughout iraq in fact who would normally control this kind of behavior before it reaches this stage but the objections that the protesters have are equally geared towards those tribal elders they're ignoring those tribal elders so now the protesters essentially have almost a free hand to do what they want because there is a concern that if the security forces step in all the tribal elders step in things could spiral out of control right across the country. just before we hit the break a few of your comments lots of you're really quite shocked by the video that we were showing earlier stephanie decker was bringing that to us courtesy of our colleagues are down to zero hour a bit if you didn't see is showing some of the escalation in violence in syria right now and if you go to youtube live stream youtube dot com slash al-jazeera you
can scroll back actually to the start of the show and have to watch it i suspect it will go on the facebook page a little bit later on we'll try to tweet a link out to that raw footage it was and very powerful as one of the i think we've got it let's have a look and this is the type of stuff that just in this was shot on on a phone from one of our colleagues i mean look at that that's absolutely story and this is stephanie was saying to us is happening in less populated areas of more to the south. and is sort of. i guess it's a sign of what's to come if we believe that this and we do that there is going to be a large scale escalation in labe then there will be more of this and only worse and probably happening in more populated areas as well and that is quite a frightening prospect for this film by a team from al jazeera arabic who are in the area as you can see an incredibly dangerous area to be in but great that we can bring you those pictures from the ground. asama my producer just tell me it wasn't shot on the phone it happened as
the crew was filming so they were working there and suddenly out of nowhere an attack from the sky so yes facebook dot com such as they were for the live stream at a.j. english on twitter what set my what steps down at the moment i don't know if that's a global thing but hopefully you can still get through to us presence in four five one triple one four nine here with the news grid and if you want you know us on facebook live is about a story for you from our friends at i.j.a. plus the telling us why lands in australia are wearing sweaters and then later the toronto film festival debuted michael moore's latest documentary where among other things he compares don't want to i don't think we will have the reaction to that. yesterday i failed to find fifty degrees even forty nine we're down to forty seven
in the hottest parts of iran and iraq closing in from both sides the potential for a few showers in pakistan in turkey and possibly in the northwest of syria or cells and turkey as well it wiped out represents and is there in the forecast as well to keep the main beneficiary temperature wise they were still up in the forty's over see the full force two in bold baghdad forty one also in kuwait means in between the two you can probably expect forty five forty six maybe forty seven so it's starting to come down and little bit. there's not been much for prevailing breeze recently around the gulf states the humidity is up and it's represented now by this potential for a lot of clouds which possibly means thunderstorms in the mountains. now the rest of this put in series dry but the chance of showers breaking out at this time of year increase of the high ground of saudi and yemen and of course of a month the time being how do you still blows over salada we've had some useful rain in southern africa as well particularly on the eastern cape then you go
through the city just was the land and the two lines of rain still so this one's going through cape town will probably dry up just on the eastern side and up through well mozambique he looks wet. in indonesia palm oil is a billion dollar business want to win east investigates the price the country's paying. to feed the world's paul morley addiction. on al-jazeera. when people need to be head. start has been for a few jomo soldiers life it's not can only show and the story needs to be told we do stories that have passed all suspect i testify in the court of law to make sure that the bad guys appeal to find facts al-jazeera has teams on the ground to bring new documentaries and live news on air and online.
the headline from out there of all com and what's trending as well more on what was math from the silence about those protests and bastard to. and i own that because the way that it's going to feel. turned into something even bigger than it already is and i just want it laid there as well and a story we were telling you about last night's mr both sinatra table sonar and the brazilian presidential candidate who was stabbed in the middle of the tamping valley have a look for yourself that's what's trending this saturday and al-jazeera dot com. by the way when watching on facebook like you missed a really good story about lamb's wearing suede has got a way to pass and have a look we are going to turn our attention to politics in the u.s. now though and in just a few hours former president barack obama will headline a campaign rally for seven democratic congressional candidates in california this
event months obama's return to politics if you like ahead of the crucial midterm elections less than sixty days from now and in a reputable speech yesterday on friday obama broke with presidential tradition by not attacking his successor and took direct aim at donald trump more from our white house correspondent kimberly. accusing current president donald trump of capitalizing on resentment former u.s. president barack obama delivered a blistering attack on trump's time in the white house this is not normal these are extraordinary times and they're dangerous. obama is back on the campaign trail advocating for democrats in advance of a november vote that will determine control of the u.s. congress and offer what he believes is a much needed check on his successor the politics of division and resentment and paranoia is unfortunately found a home in the republican party. obama's fiery speech took aim at some of trump's
most controversial moments as president polluting his response to white nationalist protests in charlottesville when trump blamed both sides for the trouble we're supposed to stand up to discrimination. and was sure as heck supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to nazi sympathizers. how hard can that be saying that nazis are bad obama's attack comes as trump is also campaigning for republicans in north dakota trump responded i'm sorry i watched it but i fell asleep. he shot back at obama who said the economic recovery started under his presidency if the democrats got in with their agenda in november of almost two years ago and said that having four point two
i believe honestly you'd have four point two down you'd be negative you'd be in negative numbers thank you illinois. still obama's speech is a stinging rebuke of a sitting president with a distinctly different vision of democracy kimberly hellcat al-jazeera washington. were here when obama spoke of john mccain's funeral what was it about a week ago there was a sudden oh yeah him again and people started to really react oh he's speaking again and people are very excited fax we put in a search for obama on twitter and it's gone viral in the past twenty four hours reaching in fact over one million six hundred tweets many coming out of the us canada new zealand kenya and the u.k. and while many are calling this a campaign trail faceoff between obama and trump we're seeing similar sentiment online here are some of the most popular tweets from supporters on both sides a filmmaker actor bob raina says for americans who love this country and care about
the future of our two hundred forty two years of democratic self rule it is imperative to watch president obama's speech he spoke of the america we all want inclusive fair and just and then of the former u.s. vice president joe biden says it's a powerful reminder that it's on all of us to vote this fall if you want it is who reflect the civility character dignity and the goodness of the american people meanwhile ana navarro who is the republican strategist she tweeted i lobbed my share of criticism at obama but yeah i miss a president capable of articulating coherent thoughts in complete and chromatically correct sentences well not everybody agrees though u.s. senator lindsey graham says the more bombs speaks about the good ole years of his presidency the more likely president trump is to get reelected in fact the best explanation of trump's victory of the results of the obama presidency and ben shapiro who is
a us political commentator said obama electric us is literally how you got trump what do you think send us your thoughts is the hash tag has got one interesting one thank you are here now you would probably remember the film fahrenheit nine eleven right the two thousand and four documentary by michael moore which criticized president george w. bush and his response. to the september eleventh attacks well in twenty attain we have found eleven and nine a new film referring to the date when donald trump was officially announced as the forty fifth president and the film's had its debut at the toronto international film festival when more apparently compared from two adult. drew parallels with the rise of nazi germany. i'm sick and tired of people telling me that america is the greatest country because we can whip your ass. somebody but i've never felt.
i'll give you this you're never going to have one scene when you stop. by to impeach you just try if you want a spasm of violence in this country like never seen. governor snyder i got some point water for you. anything. in the picture. and you got to make it if nobody's going to do it then i got a deal and then i'll give you war i'll fight you in the same street that they're. ok i. did this and that the american dream. is. well there's been plenty of reaction to the new film and on his website director michael moore said this film
is the moment of truth we've all needed for some time and i believe its release may well be the real beginning of the end of charm i also believe we have as we approach november sixth a massive tsunami of women young people and people of color that is two thirds of the american public who maybe just maybe will drown the whole stinking lot of them in a record number of ballots cast for a midterm election and one of the top tweets is from the far right news group right part saying finally someone's brave enough to compare trump to hitler and others are a sharing the moment more got a standing ovation at the festival just after the film's debut. a new al-jazeera dot com this saturday realer feature piece on down from one of the courts is that the web of interconnected allegations become a blur and people are getting so numb to it so journalist james ronnell has written this piece to try to tie it all together and remind us of what has been going on trump's scandals and unprecedented president is in the features section at al
jazeera dot com interesting couple of comments actually raymond is it might more seems like he's drunk too much coffee again and michael is the mess which we just watched in iraq i guess that's referring to the bass for story earlier that was all barack obama i guess michael moore would say that was actually george w. bush. let's move on imagine being the head of the company worth billions of dollars and doing something erratic in public that raises the eyebrows of your shareholders that business scenario is actually playing out in real life as tesla shareholders are growing increasingly alarmed by the recent antics of its c.e.o. elon musk shares for the company plans on friday after news that two top executives that suddenly left the company how does your cancer has the full story. in stores whether a media stunt gone bad or an ill made decision and probably can't because stockholders right. i mean it's legal right it's all legal ok the video of billionaire entrepreneur musk smoking marijuana during
a live interview thursday has translated to a financial hit on his company the stock value of electric car manufacturer tesla tumbled nine percent friday morning continuing a downward trend fueled by a string of corporate resignations and its founders erratic behavior i'm going to text messages for for a manager and saying what the hell are you doing smoking weed musk in early august announced with a controversial tweet he was considering taking tesla private only to take back the idea weeks later before that he had bizarrely interjected himself into the rescue effort of twelve tibe boys trapped in a flooded cave when his offer to build a mini submarine was refused must turn his angsty toward a british rescue diver accusing him without giving evidence of being a pedophile tesla has also struggled with recent production delays of its latest
model. but space x. another in law must brainchild continues its groundbreaking success its reusable rockets and plans to return human spaceflight capability to the u.s. have upheld space x.'s status as one of the world's most valuable privately held companies asked thursday to explain his innovative genius musk said even as a child he knew he was different i think when i was five or six or something i thought i was insane. you think you're insane because it's clear that people do not . what their mind wasn't exploding with ideas all the time the question is whether what makes musk so different is also driving him toward recklessness and how much patience investors wish to expend castro al-jazeera washington we've got
alison stewart alan with us now c.e.o. of the international marketing partners a business consulting firm in london nice to have you with us allison what's he doing thank you know that's a really broad question but what is great what what does he hope to i mean he is the head of a big company an influential couple a public company and then he does this. well you know this isn't unheard of oddly enough in corporate life if it wasn't that long ago that we were probably having the same conversation about travis kalanick at uber you know it is a coincidence maybe not that both are silicon valley giants and i guess when you have a chief executive who has gone rogue as you could say is the case here with you on musk then it's imperative that the board and the investors actually have a plan for how to minimize the volatility that this behavior has on the share price
and as your earlier report suggests you know a nine percent share price fall on friday alone and we'll see what happens on monday it means that you know investors should be very concerned not helped by the fact that two senior executives suddenly quit on friday as well i mean that probably speaks more music talk about musts erratic behavior but when you actually got executives leaving that really speaks more to what's going on within the business and what's wrong with the business perhaps. yes and actually the brand implications are also worth looking at because if you have this level of upset then it casts doubt in the minds of the customer in terms of is this a company that's going to be around for a while is this a company that going to service my car or vehicle should it ever break down so i think the fact that these things are happening inside the business is actually
sowing seeds of you know doubt about the reputation of the business will be around for a while and that's when you really need to be worried is because when the brand is affected and when consumer demand is affected then the long term viability of this business is certainly at risk if you think the product is strong enough you know what what's tesla is doing with their cars and even with you want to extend it to space x. on the line with what you know musk is trying to do is the product strong enough and interesting enough in all these things to withstand whatever evil musk wants to do next well that's a great question for the time being there aren't any viable competitors that are doing electric cars just focusing on the vehicle side of the business that are doing cars with this level of design that they consumer wants but you know it isn't
going to be long before a rival is with us and as soon as that rival is with us that is offering styling that softening the same level of engineering as the test like cars you know why wouldn't a customer think seriously about trying an alternative. quite right alison stewart out in london lovely to talk to you thank you for your time. now once again for the crew watching on facebook live you're about to learn about a korean drink that is trending thanks to remand to comedy is a cool story she said what's the plus and then paul is here with your sporting putting the woman looking to become japan's first ever grand slam tennis champion first though quick check on some international weather.
going on. gang life this was our foundation. i tried to do something different when i met daisy and it was the best day of my life . i wish that day could have gone on forever. but my past caught up with me. and made us all pay the price of daisy and max on al-jazeera. germany's capital there is a barber like no other sort of what it is. possible to have. but as he said he changes he's moving with it. and going on the road.
the stories. we're told by the people who live. here barbara. this is an al-jazeera. told him to talk sport this is shaping up as a really exciting fun yes it is under real generation gap as well kemal is going to make us both feel very old when serina williams won her first grand slam in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine now you me a soccer her opponent was just one year old baby but tonight she faces an idol in the u.s. open final with
a chance of becoming japan's first ever grand slam champion well here's the now twenty year old soccer after winning her semifinal against madison keys she's never been beyond the fourth round of a major mother there but she did beat serena in the only previous meeting at the miami open earlier this year even when i was a little kid a stream that i would place you know now final the grand slam so i'm just the fact that it's happening is i'm very happy about it but the same time i feel like even though i should enjoy this more i should still think of it as another match and. you know i shouldn't really think of her as like my you know i should just like try to play him as another planet. so who is now you me a psycho well she was born in osaka prefecture in japan but left at age three and was raised in the us her mother is japanese and her father from haiti and she has both japanese and u.s. citizenship she turned pro at age fifteen on her father registered her as
a japanese raavan american player earlier this year she won her first tournament at the indian wells open and then as we mentioned beat serena in straight sets in miami well let's speak live to sports illustrated executive editor john wortham news in new york john niamey a soccer has really burst onto the scene here what's been the catalyst for this year in who runs the u.s. open final she hits one of the most powerful shots in women's tennis this year she is combining it with accuracy she's a terrific athlete she struggled a bit in the past with self belief but this tournament here has just been tremendous she's dropped only one sat and suddenly has to steps away from the deuce arena willie into winning her first grand slam title now she's lived most of her life in the u.s.
how much of her success can japan reasonably claim. it's a great question and it's going to be one of these talking points as he becomes more successful and also as the twenty twenty when picked lou her mother is japanese she does not be fluent japanese but she plays under the japanese flag her surname which she takes from her mom osaka obviously is japanese the japanese media here has been all over her and it's going to be really interesting to see how this ethnicity plays out because she she plays japanese and she has a japanese parent yet she doesn't live there it doesn't speak the language so i think this is going to be a theme heard tire career really but especially keep in mind as the olympics loom in tokyo in she'll be one of the darlings of those games now in the two decades that they william sisters have been dominating tennis especially serena we've seen a lot of female players come in not really make that sort of impact can be
different i think she really can i mean i think some of this is the fact of serena williams is almost thirty seven years old and in serenus absence that will happen eventually osaka is good could really fill that vacuum but i think a lot of the williams sisters i think two things one is their power in osaka can come pretty close to matching serena's power and also mental and i think that's where today's match will will ride that william sisters have this unshakable self belief that other players haven't had and i think this match today will come down a large part to how well osaka handles this occasion which is on president she's never been in this position before thank you very much john wortham of sports illustrated's thanks so much air time and your analysis. well corey didn't manage to make it to japanese finalists in new york he was well beaten by novak djokovic who has avoided meeting well then one doll in the men's final they woodstock's has
the story i this was always going to be a tough test to ruffle the doubt but he's the world number one for a reason and typically he took the point to del potro. i thank something wasn't right though he has a history of knee trouble and was clearly suffering perhaps feeling the effects of his five hour battle with dominic team in the previous round. as he slowed down turned up the pace edging a first set on a tie break and then breaking early in the second i thank the dallas frustration group he could barely move and was helpless as breezed into a two set lead thanks he lasted two hours but the defending champion had no choice but to call it today the first man to retire from a semifinal that the u.s. open since the professional era began back in one nine hundred sixty eight i hate
to write it but stay one more set i'll play like this. well bit too much for me the dow's injury aside del potro looked impressive he's three two his first major final since winning the u.s. open back in two thousand and nine he's up for wrist operations since then and came close to retiring so the arch in time is just happy to be back competing at the highest level and you know spank to get this kind of. playing tennis again and. reaching finals winning titles. in my show use ranking. and his. one most perfect to make it perfect he'll have to beat novak djokovic in the final the serb enjoyed a comfortable straight sets win of a kind she could i think. he's looking forward to sunday showdown with the
potro he's a dear friend and someone that i respect the law and. you know i we all felt for for his struggles with injuries that kept him away from the tour for two or three years. but he was always. a top five player in eyes of i think everyone djokovic she herself had elbow surgery in february but he won wimbledon just a few months later victory on sunday which secured grand slam the fourteen and draw him level with pete sampras third on the all time list david stokes al-jazeera. well my colleague on the richardson is actually staying late for you tonight to bring you the bring you the action from that women's final in new york. eight hundred g.m.t. first for now and you back to come up good tommy did some work as well just before we leave you i want to go back to our top story and that was syria and the pictures which a lot of you have been talking about on the live stream tonight these were pictures
filmed by a camera crew from al-jazeera arabic they were filming a piece in southern parts of italy and then this happens and this is an area which is not that it really populated but it gives you an idea of the side i mean look at the size of that explosion that's happening there and this is just a prelude on board you know i think for what is coming when you hear about the syrian government launching a final offensive on it live in the more populated areas as i say this every single lot of empty fields in the light. it's quite frightening to watch our crew is all safe that's good news but yeah a frightening thought about what is to comment i say is to come because i think it's pretty much confirmed that there will be a full offensive in to the act so if you want to get in touch with us on that story on anything more you use the hash tag on twitter facebook and whatsapp and we will see you back here in studio forty eight on syria at fifteen hundred g.m.t. tomorrow some.
new technologies rarely do we stop to ask what is the price of this progress what happened was people started getting sick but there was a small group of people that began to think that maybe this was related to the kind of exposure in the job and investigation reveals how even the smallest devices have deadly environmental and.
