super typhoon manhood batters parts of china after leaving more than sixty people dead in the philippines. and helping refugees instead of buying a new car the story of a peruvian businessman sheltering venezuela's. fighting in yemen province is intensifying as the u.n. envoy steps up efforts to revive talks to end the three year old civil war the rebels say the saudi amarok coalition has carried out more than thirty five air strikes in the past twenty four hours they're targeting a main highway out of the port city which is a key supply route to the rebel held capital of sana'a and are simmons has been following the story from nearby djibouti and a warning you may find some of the images in this report disturbing. after.
2:02 am
it's an airstrike by the saudi u.s. led coalition. whatever the target may have been this is the result civilians searching for missing children it isn't a rescue they find one dead child. i mean i know when i heard that i heard what's his guilt why is he being killed says one of the men who really are rescued the child's mother the father wasn't in his home when the bomb hit the girl's name is mood cedar she's carried away by one of the helpers he knows it doesn't end here. the searching continues and smooths brother neville has recovered and i have a feeling that it's what everyone had dreaded two dead children. they're very proud of. these are civilians their little kids are the only words this man can manage
2:03 am
it happened on saturday in modern inside a province which shares a border with saudi arabia these people are internally displaced having fled the fighting yemen's turmoil is a lethal mix of the tactics of warfare the tactics of diplomacy from negotiations that could be a touch with that and a humanitarian crisis the fighting isn't just on the battlefield the suffering goes right across yemen but it's getting worse. in the stillness of a remote village and province they're eating the leaves of trees to survive they're cooked and mashed into a paste. i personally i don't you believe this is my salary has been cut it's a main meal for my children even though this is causing them each of us and drowsiness what can we do. now. we cook tree leaves we have no nutrition we will die here we have no one but god. this is the nearest medical center to the village
2:04 am
where they had to resort to eating leaves mao nutrition could end up being the biggest killer in this conflict anyone trying to bring peace to yemen may not need reminding of what's at stake nevertheless those without a voice of influence a crying out for help now more than ever before of the u.n. special envoy martin griffiths has spent the day holding talks with hooty leaders in sana'a andrew symonds again with this update. griffis has a major job on his hands trying to convince the warring sides that now is the time to actually start talking about dialogue when there's been more than a week of really heavy fighting in the wake of those talks in geneva that never got off the ground the fighting obviously is most intense in her data the red sea ports
2:05 am
in which cruises are trying to defend they say the huth is that they are repelled in some places. from these are you led coalition to get control of the supply line to the capital sana'a. sixteen is the biggest major focal point of the fighting but also further towards the port city in other points and there is a point such as kill a seven kilo ten there are also battles going on it certainly doesn't seem to be the case that things are at a point when you can say that this supply line is actually cut but certainly the coalition is putting every effort into trying to get full control of this area and control of the port city head of any possible dialogue with seem they are insisting that there has to be a success in taking data to force as they say the who things to
2:06 am
talks. on how much your cowie is a professor of conflict resolution at george mason university here in doha joins us now in the studio thanks for being with us so we'll talk about what's happening and how they don't just a moment but first of all this these ongoing talks do you see any signs of hope here any signs of a possible breakthrough while i think griffith's trip. on sunday showcases how resilient he has been five days ago we were talking about it's no geneva process basically since the whole is could not fly because of the conditions but now he is in the field his point figure out a way to keep them engaged in the process so from a conflict with the solution perspective this is going to significant the negotiation process is the way there are others of course and they hope that the whole is now will seize this opportunity to find another way where all the parties
2:07 am
with it if not inside yemen maybe somewhat close will become fly with no conditions and we're seeing what appears to be a stepped up. bombing campaign on the on the port city of data by the saudi. led coalition what's what's the point of that what's the strategy there to me i think there is a strong correlation between when the decision of mr goodrich to fly to yemen to meet with who is with the worsening situation and who did and i think the oh and i did nations in the entire international community community is aware of this kind of. defined objectively of capture and what data the. correlation is using of the equipment. and the question remains
2:08 am
how we can shift the conflict from a military showdown between the color. and i would use to kind of process where we can all void the bloodshed and they think now besides syria yemen has become another nightmare and i think it's about time that somebody would also consider another or a parallel process of negotiation with the coalition to sort of. isn't the immoderate is to go better plan in terms of you know how they're going to capture who the and for what objectively exactly is it just a. showing off their muscles or this is something that there is some you know wise politics that can be involved and we saw the terrible pictures there in the report of the the effect of the bombing by the saudi led coalition what incentive is there for any real effort to end this war if there isn't there
2:09 am
isn't enough of a pushback against the bombing campaign for from from the international community while so far three years of heavy confrontations have not given us a winner decisive win either in favor of the whole is on in favor of the coalition so sometimes when realism and political realism over the it's the use of powers use of force and then there is this. no win win situation for anybody the question becomes who can sit down and find a formula where the use of force can lead to something it's not for the sake of fighting each other and the thing though mr griffith it is articulating a strong will on behalf of the international community and we need to bring this
2:10 am
conflict to and somehow and i think we need a more progressive or a more aggressive diplomatic formula and i hope the hutus will give him now and also we have seen some reports coming from the human rights organizations from the united nations criticizing the performance of the saudis and the emergencies so you have to sort of course so that the hoti is coming to the table but the arab coalition has also to consider an alternative it is because you know how much joining us thanks so much for being with us now the united states has all of the palestinian mission in washington to close staff bank accounts and clear their offices the trumpet ministration had announced the closure of the palestine liberation organization office in the us capital last week palestinian leaders are calling it a declaration of war on peace efforts p.l.o. executive committee member helen ashrawi has condemned the latest move saying the
2:11 am
us has taken its attempts to pressure and blackmail the palestinians to a new level the us administration has gone from cruel punishment to revenge against the palestinians and their leadership. palestinians have been furious with a series of trump decisions which many say are clearly biased back in january this year trump withheld one hundred twenty five million dollars in aid to the relief agency that supports palestinians in may the u.s. broke all international norms by moving the u.s. embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem and then in august the trumpet ministration announced it would end all funding to honor more in rabbani is a senior fellow at the institute for palestine studies he joins us now via skype from washington thanks very much for being with us so first of all your reaction to this decision. you mean the latest decision to exclude danielle in
2:12 am
offices and yes and then i revoke the visas of the. palestinian well again i've heard i think the trumpet administration is dealing with the palestinians as if their tenants and one of their slum will do what we say or or will let the rock rock that will that and that seems to be what we're seeing here i mean these people genuinely seem to believe that by exercising sure of their treasure and undertaking more deadly measures against our citizens and the american presentation family members and so on that one day they're going to wake up and the palestinians will have capitulated fully to the israelis on every argument or substance i think it just shows through a lot of experience with these people and how seriously out of their depths.
2:13 am
so-called peace once the trumpet ministration is defending this by saying and i'm quoting u.s. and national security adviser john bolton now is saying that we will not keep the office open when the palestinians refuse to take steps to start direct and meaningful negotiations with israel what do you say to that. well this is the same example and he was just then promoting thirty eight billion dollars in military aid to israel so you know you take this kind of riddle seriously at your own peril but i think you know there is a point here where we need to focus not just on this particular us administration and recognize that what we're seeing is in fact on the whole consistent with longstanding u.s. policy bipartisan u.s. policy towards that city and so these latest measures for example are rooted in the one nine hundred eighty seven antiterrorism act of congressional resolution that
2:14 am
was adopted with overwhelming bipartisan support it defines appeal as a terrorist organization and makes it illegal for the p.l.o. to operate on us or in any way shape or form even at the height of the oslo process that a piece of congressional legislation was never rescinded instead of the palestinian the p.l.o. was treated as a terrorist organization on probation and was granted six monthly waivers to continue operating and it's these kinds of attitudes towards the power syrians and i think help explain why we are where we are today so what do you expect this to me. no or i mean. eventually the u.s. is going to run out of punitive measures to administer to the city and and we're really seeing now what's being called the ultimate deal isn't that an attempt to
2:15 am
impose the alternate fits on plea you know in other words to try to change reality on the ground one step at a time and i think the real question is given this. u.s. approach to the syrians why do the palestinians still accept u.s. funding for their security forces why is the palestinian intelligence chief still being sent to washington to meet with american counterparts i think at a certain point the palestinians also have to realize that they can extract a price from the u.s. and from your adversaries and have to begin acting accordingly good to speak with you robin joining us there from washington thanks for being with us. other palestinian activist i had to mimi has attended a political event in france after earlier being banned from traveling abroad by the israeli government israel stop the seventeen year old from traveling to europe
2:16 am
earlier this month to talk about her experience in jail and the palestinian resistance movement to me was freed in july after spending eight months in prison for slapping an israeli soldier. the man in the twenty one you're a seventeen year old palestinian you suffer every day promise israeli occupation of palestinian children get arrested or killed one hundred daily basis at checkpoints they have a hard time going to school because of all those security checks they risk their lives on their way to school. plenty more ahead on this news hour the worst is yet to come people in the u.s. state of north carolina are warned about the flooding threat posed by storm florence. sick and starving we report on the plight of the tens of thousands of south sudanese children suffering malnutrition. and later in sport it's full time lucky for christiane over now though as he scores his first goals in its league's top league.

eight hours before the storm struck they survived but now they're afraid to go home . to be poor is to stouffer we're just corn farmers and now we have lost our home to we have to borrow from creditors now just so we can start over. farmlands and now submerged in flood waters schools used as evacuation centers are also damaged. we drove further to reach the town of get around this is what's left of cornfields here a few hours of a typhoon took a year of their earnings a painful blow for farmers here super typhoon monk a battered much of northern luzon leaving a trail of and destruction. across an hour and communication lines have been destroyed leaving many farming communities isolated after several hours we reached the town of la look.
2:19 am
he took two years for jason and linda lena and to build just the frame of their home but it's all gone in an instant and. it hurts to see this because just to recover what we lost we have to make painful sacrifices again indigenous communities like this one have been living in abject poverty for generations and they are held back even further by natural disasters that is because the government assistance they need to start over is barely enough farming is their livelihood now they don't know how they can survive their story is one that's repeated a hundred times and more the damage in province is extensive what we've just seen so far is just a fraction of the devastation by food has caused the full extent will become known
2:20 am

2:22 am
al-jazeera hong kong. and in nearby macau the government shut down all of its casinos for the first time the city also issued its highest storm alert officials in macau came under criticism for how they handled another big typhoon last year which killed twelve people in the united states florence has been downgraded to a tropical depression but it continues to ravage the states of north and south carolina the governor of north carolina says florence is now at its most dangerous stage it is dumping record levels of rain and major flooding is forecast over a dozen people have died. let's go live now to christa salumi who is in the city of fiat ville in north carolina so christine what is the latest on the situation there . well the storm is slowly creeping out of north carolina the worst of the wind and rain is over but
2:23 am
it's clearly not over yet the rain still comes down and the rivers are rising that's the real concern the rivers continue to rise along with concerns about flooding and now mudslides as well in some of the more mountainous areas of north carolina and if you look behind me you can see exactly what officials here are worrying about we've got a major roadway in the middle of downtown say advil north carolina where a tributary of the cape fear river has overflowed its banks and is now just flowing right through the town and this is a big hazard of course for motorists on the roadway as well as pedestrians walking by of the fifteen deaths that have been reported so far in this area at least fifteen about five of them have been due to motor vehicle accidents so officials are warning that the worst is not over yet and that residents should not be complacent. florence may no longer be a hurricane or even
2:24 am
a tropical storm but her rains keep falling and the waters keep rising all across north and south carolina and despite days of warnings flash flooding continues to catch many off guard as the storm slowly inches inland it was waist deep inside the house and then once we got off the park it was at our power play more than nine hundred people have been rescued from homes and vehicles so far and according to the governor of north carolina the worst has yet to come some fifteen thousand people have moved into government shelters who were able to go fly over fayetteville in your car to see that raging gate here record you were driving the vulnerable need to be there all day and there are. travel has become increasingly treacherous as rivers overflow their banks and flood major roadways at least five of the people whose deaths have been attributed to
2:25 am
florence were killed in their vehicles residents are being warned not to become complacent but help and for the best but prepare for the worst and we and we sit in a strong message to people if you decide to stay and not by about a mandatory evacuation what about three pm today will not be available to you and so we encourage you to do things like notify legal next of kin and let people know what your choices are. new mandatory evacuation orders went into effect in fayetteville for those who live within a mile of the cape fear and little rivers the last time this area experience major flooding with two years ago the cape fear river swelled its banks and the water rose so high it came all the way to this building here flooding the basement meteorologists are predicting that this time the flooding will be even worse. volunteers who lived through the last storm are standing by to help emergency officials we've got churches over and we've got a volunteer center that we know we got schools over and over shelters that were if
2:26 am
you go if you can get. those we're got guys that are willing to take their vote their lives on the line to make sure our people get through safe. waiting and watching a slow motion natural disaster whose full impact may still not be felt for days and at this time there are some six hundred thousand people still without electricity in the area crews working to restore those people those homes that need electricity while other areas are getting inundated and flooded and knocked down at the same time the extent of the damages here are hard to measure but the governor of north carolina said at this point they estimate tens of thousands of homes and buildings have been damaged and that total is likely to rise in the coming day as they learn more of course it's hard to predict because again the worst is yet to come the rivers are expected to rise for a recent other couple of days. kristensen let me live for us there in fayetteville

a new world record of the berlin marathon. had other big story in the u.s. is still florence of course at the shapes disappeared to be honest with a core of tropical depression it was really a mass of rain still falling so a slow moving system the most active in the u.s. there still is a big shot down in texas and a massacre in the northwest corner and that significant is us effectively a change of season that's really winter waiting up in british columbia and trying to push it whereas it's much much warmer and of course is to get plenty of tropical air further to the south the reason you got this green bit not the red bit is just we've got loads of cloud loads a rain so the sun can't do his work and it looks like it's not as warm baka sure you feel tropical the amount of rain certainly is of tropical nature that runs out
2:31 am
to the appalachians eventually into new england there's plenty of well a landslide risk and of course plenty of flooding in the carolinas even virginia still to come big shasta around texas and moving stuff east towards mississippi and there's the dip we expect to see but it went to the north like bit of winter just a bit of snow on the high ground of canada and author that's gone through maybe things warm up for a while still got the rain in this streak of in the northeast corner so give must already happened this is clearly the wet bit of the u.s. if anything in texas you have big showers are on their way out.
