2:03 am
a capacity of about a hundred people we're told it was carrying way more than that including many bags of cement and goods as well and it seems to have been toppled over by a very bad weather now this is the fast serious incident in many areas to happen in that lake the last time there was a major incident was back in one thousand nine hundred six when another ferry capsized killing up to a thousand people it was also said to have been overloaded in other world news e.u. leaders are warning britain's prime minister that time is running out to agree on a bracks a deal the warning came on the final day of the informal you summited songs birth austria with just six months to go european council president donald tusk says aris amazed her pozole is unworkable but maine says her deal the so-called check is plan is the only one on the table. yes concerns have been raised i want to know what those concerns are there's
2:04 am
a lot of hard work to be done but i believe that there is a willingness to do a deal but let nobody be in any doubt that as i've always said you know we are preparing for no deal there is no counter proposal on the table at the moment that actually deals delivers on what we need to do and respects the integrity of the united kingdom and respects the result of the referendum. ever about the shirt of the viewer the positive elements in the czech proposal the framework for economic cooperation. not least because it risks undermining the single market the irish question needs something more than only good intentions i mean we need a. clear and precise guarantees. siddhis what you probably didn't bridget is the choice of the british people and it's pushed by some who predicted easy solutions but it tells us one think and i fully respect the british

sovereignty by saying this it has shown us that those who think that they can easily do without europe that it will go very well and that it will make a lot of money outliers. europe's migration crises was also high on the agenda in salzburg a subject that's divided the e.u. well now the bra could soon be turning to egypt for help after chancellor made the suggestion lawrence the reports from salzburg this is the man to whom the european union is now looking to solve its migration issue president sisi of egypt. it was a surprise development at the salzburg summit the idea was driven by the rightwing austrian chancellor sebastian coe it's who visited c.c. last weekend he's come back full of praise at how good egypt is at stopping refugees from leaving your comment yet so far on the phone our bit with egypt we have for the first time a country in north africa that is willing to intensify talks with the european
2:06 am
union egypt has proven that it can be efficient since two thousand and sixteen it is managed boats that leave egypt for europe and when ever they have lived it took them back. the thousands of men women and children who have drowned in the mediterranean bear witness to the total lack of a strategy from the e.u. either to help rescue them or to find a reliable partner in libya to help instead europe now has many leaders whose biggest priority is to keep asylum seekers out egypt c.c. looks to be in. the european union has found it absolutely impossible to persuade individual member states to share out asylum seekers between them but if you ask those same countries would you pay somebody else to do it then they all reach for their wallets in terms the new european migration plan is to outsource the whole thing to egypt and they see no moral hazard in getting a country with such a poor human rights records to do it. the e.u.
2:07 am
if it means that egypt will run migrant detention centers whether asylum claims for europe will in future be done in cairo and they say it's still early days but more summits focusing on egypt are being planned for december and february there is no one size fits all solution to this indeed if it is the case that there is good migration management in egypt and it seems to be the case well and good but it does not mean that it's automatically the solution for libya where there's a very very completely different set of circumstances different issues of governance in fact almost no government in many cases so you can't simply say we'll do we're going to do what we did over there over there you have to apply you know principles of humanitarian principles and support for the human rights of those who are involved if there was unity about the need to keep asylum seekers out there was just as much on trying to stop the u.k. from leaving the e.u. or at least the continued flat rejection of the british prime minister's proposed plan she now has under

a month to come up with something new. south korean president says a declaration officially ending the korean war should happen as soon as possible his comments follow a historic three day summit n.p.r. now moon has turned to mediator between donald trump and kim jong un to help fulfill the promise of a nuclear free korean peninsula rob mcbride reports from seoul. this summit ended as it began rich in symbolism president moon j.n. of south korea and his north korean host kim jong un top of mt peck to the highest peak of the korean peninsula spiritually significant to all koreans into korean relations have seen many false starts with attempts at reconciliation often returning to threats of war but there's a strong sense muna and kim want to forge a bond so strong that they can never slip back to the acrimony of the time.
2:09 am
we adopted a military pact to end a history of brutal and tragic confrontation and hostility. some weapons facilities will be closed but there's little detail on how to fulfill them or they promise to make the peninsula you clear three it's enough though to breathe new life back into the store negotiations between north korea and the united states and could lead to a second summit between kim and u.s. president donald trump but many believe to make real progress it's now time for the photo ops to give way to detailed discussion i mean it's going to be really really difficult and the president and kim jong un don't know these things any kind of detail which is why we keep getting these some of declarations that are very short because the detail has to be worked out by the experts. more skeptical observers suspect north korea now with south korean support may have other reasons for pushing for a summit and this is
2:10 am
a significant diplomatic success for moscow area because in a few months we should disband to make preparations was a summit and during the summit itself we are not going to see any confrontation and this is exceptionally. that kicks their major goal is to await donald trump alt as soon as moon returned to seoul he broadcast live to south korea. he revealed that kim has offered a number of unspecified steps towards denuclearization but would be expecting concessions from the u.s. in return. the detail measures or the appropriate measures are things that must be agreed upon between north korea and the u.s. . it underlines moon's vital role now as go between the north koreas negotiations with the u.s. as he prepares for a meeting next week with trump whatever the outcome this summit with kim has

2:12 am
were jailed recently for their reporting on the military's attacks on ranges this is something that has caused us enormous concern the british embassy here attended most of the trial we are supporters of believers in freedom across all over the world and i raised with exciting switching my concerns that due process had not been followed in this particular case and she said that she would look into it. the white house says it's authorize new cyber operations against foreign countries ahead of november november's midterm elections u.s. national security advisor john bolton who made the announcement did not say which nations would be targeted or specify the nature of the operations the move is part of a new cyber strategy the white house says will protect the nation. plenty more ahead on this al-jazeera news hour including the fight against terrorism a new report says a blockade on qatar by neighboring countries has
2:13 am
a negative impact plus how u.s. sanctions affected the number of people visiting iraq's karbala on a shura by the show holiest days for shia muslims and russia's doping ban has been lifted paedo have the details in sports. first ugandan pop star turned politician bobby wine has found to keep fighting the government or die trying he was speaking to crowds of supporters outside his home near the capital kampala after returning from a medical trip to the united states malcolm webb has more from company. these people want change in uganda. and they think pop star turned politician robots are you loni can bring it he's better known as bobby wine very popular among young people because it is home to wait for his return from the u.s.
2:14 am
so what do you mean the president of uganda is coming to. us and is fighting for us this government of ours. everything they use. we citizens who don't have guns they use many form. and the men in uniforms made it clear that people were not allowed to gather in the street just being in the wrong place at the wrong time was enough to get beaten. well the wine says soldiers tortured him when they arrested him last month fiame denies it in america for medical treatment i assume he landed at the airport police bundled him into a car and rushed off the last thing they want to crowds of thousands of his supporters gathering on the airport road that leads into the capital kampala. back at his home supporters came to welcome him his popularity the threat to
2:15 am
seventy four year old president you know rima seventy who's ruled for more than three decades will be one survived was inside a fellow there just integrate the thankfully there was so over the course they are very excited see the they don't know as well now the crisis they were accompanying her over there for the police they gave her only allow we don't know any of the they kill her that's the president of the earth the police didn't want to take any chances so they pulled him away to his front door. three quarters of ugandans around thirty years old many of them are running out a pop stop it was the change of massive appeal i have come to continue exactly where i stopped i am going to fight on and like i say that we must get our freedom always out so i will get i will treat. his wife and children hope it won't come to
2:16 am
that but you can that and never have a peaceful change of power you will be winds being charged with treason. to a bigger crowds than any politician in the government attempts to stop him only seemed to make him more popular malcolm webb al-jazeera come pala uganda alex vines is the head of the africa program at the think tank chatham house he believes the ugandan government will not back down and keep up the pressure on bobby wine. president seventy of uganda sees him self as the liberationists of uganda he sees himself as the father figure and bobby wine represents a challenge to his thirty two years in office so there will be continued intimidation and harassment maybe a bit more subtle hopefully not torture but probably one's going to find himself having a difficult time coming i think the ugandan youth and urban ugandans many of them are very sympathetic to bobby one but if you look at the electoral pattern uganda
2:17 am
is still a very rural society and so the president in a seventy the incumbent leader still has quite a significant amount of support in the rule areas so i think the challenge for bobby wine is how to translate this now into rural support and also to unite the opposition to become a true figurehead there's no doubt he's won the argument in the urban areas in amongst you that he hasn't done that yet and the rule there is there's no doubt that mr mustafa knee and the ugandan government are under significant pressure at the moment and there is some fragmentation going on in their security forces poppy wine is just one of number of headaches you gunder is facing just now the u.s. state department says it's not responsible for paying the medical costs for palestinians receiving treatment in east jerusalem this comes two weeks after president donald trump ordered that twenty five million dollars earmarked for eastern ascends hospital network be redirected to higher priority projects at the
2:18 am
end of august the trump administration cut all funding to the un's relief agency for palestinians on raw. the united states government does not believe that it is responsible for paying for the hospital bills now that may shock some people to hear that the palestinian authority is the one that actually incurs these bills on behalf of palestinian citizens and others who seek treatment at that hospital the palestinian authority is solely responsible for paying for the treatment of palestinians in those hospitals historically they have neglected to pay the bills at their hospital of those individuals and other bills related to the hospital are funding in the past has generously shored them up. the p.a. though we have seen the palestinian authority is prioritizing pain its debts. has pro failed to prioritize paying its debts and has instead put money into
2:19 am
funding things like payment to families of terrorists and payment to. as you all were or well aware of the taylor force act and payment to families of those who have been imprisoned the u.s. government says a twenty four percent drop in the number of terrorist attacks last year was due in part to the defeat i saw in iraq the u.s. state department's latest on your survey details around eight and a half hours and attacks half of them in five countries including afghanistan where the taliban's been staging a resurgent campaign the other four countries are iraq the philippines india and pakistan the u.s. again accuses iran of being the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism and the state department says the fifteen month sounding led brocade on qatar is hampering regional counterterrorism efforts by jobs where he is the director of the gulf study center at qatar university he says the report reveals a lot about america's perception of iraq. run has been mentioned in the report
2:20 am
around five four four times and the context was a repetition of what of what's been mentioned two thousand and sixteen reports are basically linking iran with the sponsoring terrorism in the context where the linkage between iran has been around him and what's happening in syria some of the militias are brought by iran. and i think that is that is reconfirming the perception of iran in the united states we cannot you know ignore the fact that the united states since the withdraw of the nuclear deal there is a sort of very clear policy of. putting iran back to the square where it is you know a rogue state where the state is not actually supporting terrorism and sort of demonization of iran if this is absolutely confirming what the united states tried to do in the since june two thousand and seventeen the united states actually signed very clear
2:21 am
you know human to. counter terrorism the report is actually confirming that steps and and the measurements taken by the government. it shows that how much you know the iran that is cooperating with the united states and delivering on their notes on a promises there is very clear message not only to the country to the world that is actually a serious fighter against terrorism in the region i think that is something for a country need to take it seriously. a senior u.n. humanitarian official for syria says air raids and ground offensives likely to continue despite a plan that has delayed any major military offensives russia and turkey is still working out the details of a fifteen to twenty kilometer wide to militarize chord or it's designed to keep government troops and rebels apart but as seventy deca reports among taqiyya many confuse about how it will work. the demilitarized zone agreed on by turkey and
2:22 am
russia is due to be established around fifteen kilometers from here it's a topic on everyone's mind one of the. demilitarized zone will be a separate zone between us and the regime turkey will ensure our side and russia will ensure their regimes in order to prevent any battle i think all the factions will accept this because turkey is pushing forward and we are with turkey but these fighters a coalition called the national liberation front are believed to be backed by turkey and getting them to fall in line will be easy the problem may be with groups that have been deemed terrorist organizations like the hill formerly known as the nostra front and accused of having links to al qaeda. i don't think hyatt to rielle sean will disappear they will break up and join the other factions there is no way that turkey will accept them staying in a loop so what if h.t.s. and other groups refuse to abide by this deal their positions remain unclear what
2:23 am
will turkey do and what happens next will government forces be taking over these areas over time there are many more questions than answers. that confusion is also felt in madison newman the city about ten kilometers away from the agreed demilitarized zone i gave i feel i don't live in the congo or what's happening a lot of foreign states are involved and we don't know anything so. this is not the end of the revolution there are twenty million people who want to the region to fall that twenty million wanted to liberate syria there are twenty million who want to see the victory flag on the presidential palace but it is seen to be the last stand of the armed opposition how much of it lives future will be decided militarily and how much will be decided politically remains unclear what is clear damascus is adamant it will take it back stephanie decker or jazeera on taka. the

republicans had demanded that she testified next monday her lawyer responded she'll testify next week just not on monday where i'm focused right now is doing everything that we can to make dr ford comfortable with coming before our committee democrats say this is just simply unfair and charge republicans don't actually want to know the truth someone who is lying does not ask the f.b.i. to investigate their claims we have to get to the bottom of this as americans before we put someone on the supreme court for life this is high stakes and not just because of what it will mean to the highest court in the land right there are women took to the streets in record numbers after trump became president angry at his treatment of women if republicans are seen to be mistreating a woman now with less than two months until the congressional elections they risk this year showing up next at the ballot box way. a point brought home

thursday by a fresh round of protests and arrests over this controversial nomination political hand al-jazeera washington. environmental campaigners in the u.k. say they'll keep fighting to stop mud from a nuclear facility being dumped into the sea wastes from the hinkley point plant is being dragged and released into the bristol channel but has not been reports a legal challenge is underway. not far from the welsh coast environmental activists keep a close saw on a huge belgian registered ship we make here in sixty four feet outside the. it's come from a nuclear plant that's being built on the coast of somerset in england and campaigners say the mud it's dumping at sea could contain dangerous radioactive materials they also say it's dropping its load outside a designated dumping area which lies less than two kilometers off shore the
2:35 am
campaign is a legal battle in the courts is still going on but they failed to get an injunction imposed on that means that ships like this can carry on the dredging and dumping off the wells coast on an almost daily basis. french energy giant e.t.f. along with a chinese partner is building a nuclear power plant known as point c next to two existing facilities the new plant should begin generating electricity in twenty twenty five and the company says the dredging will allow six huge vertical shelfs to be drilled for the cooling water system and a.d.f. spokesperson told our all the permissions needed for dredging the hinkley point c. are in place and the mud is no different to sediment found anywhere else up and down the coast they think the point c. project team welcomes public discussion and has been open and transparent about the facts around this activity. but this independent member of the welsh assembly argues that it's not clear a thorough environmental impact assessment was ever done it only done one kind of
2:36 am
testing and so identify the uranium and the plutonium particles which may or may not be in the mud they need three types of testing yell for the must watch on the tree they only get gamma so therefore they just don't know and in that building over there is a huge amount of ignorance as i say they they've allowed this country to beach treated like a colony the welsh government says international standards have been met but in recent weeks hundreds of people have demonstrated outside the assembly one hundred thousand signed petitions calling for the mud dumping to stop. absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. there is no argument. there for the precautionary principle so i think to be. the last government in this case for the people taking the most people for granted the people behind the protest say they have the law and increasingly public opinion saw

2:50 am
compete under their flag at international events this used in flies in the face of several athletes and anti doping bodies who feel russia have not done enough to earn reinstatement namely preventing access to their labs and refusing to publicly accept the mclaren report which on covered the government backed doping of more than a thousand athletes the water presidency craig reedie said today the great majority of waters exco decided to reinstate to solder as compliance with the code subject to strict conditions this decision provides a clear timeline by which water must be given access to the former moscow to barratry data and samples or he says they will reinforce the ban so russia's lair but must still allow access but as you can imagine over in moscow the chief of rue solder welcomed the reinstatement by wada. purpura sure it's the first step and a significant one it opens the way to international competitions for athletes and

federations moreover opens the possibility of competitions to be nominated in the russian federation in fact this is a result of very very hard work risotto are happy but there is widespread dismay among many athletes and n.t. doping bodies who before the vote urged water to stand firm against russia in fact they were to no votes within water itself including its vice president to linda hello and she said it was wrong and so welcome restart a back until they had fully and transparently met the roadmap today we failed the clean athletes of the world. there's a similar feeling from the chief of the u.s. anti-doping agency travis tygart who says water put the wishes of a handful of sports administrators above the rights of millions of clean athletes and the dreams of billions of sports fans and more strong words from the whistleblower who expose the russia doping program in the first place dr gregory of through his lawyer jim walden he described what his decision as the greatest
