7:35 pm
investigate further on these allegations as all this is happening it's important to note that if every democrat voted against kavanaugh they would only need two republicans to vote with them in this might be enough to make up that margin so the committee has a lot to think about in the coming days people affected by heavy rain in the philippines of cool down the government and quarrying off to two major landslides in the last week the latest one killed at least forty five people. reports locals say their warnings about a nearby still ignored. this is a call a scene that has been turned into an evacuation center one of the many here in the town of nagar in cebu province just here alone there are close to two thousand people who are staying here temporarily they come from identify danger zones in the area where the quarrying operation and the landslide actually happened we've spoken to social workers here who say there is so far no shortage of food medicine and
7:36 pm
basically basic emergency needs but they are encouraging those others who have relatives who should go back basically to their communities to the homes of the relatives because we are clearly despite this having the very basics like a bed this is not ideal for women for children and specially the old. volunteers have been working nonstop trying to ensure that what they need here is available outside aid continues to pour in there are sacks of clothing of medicine that are ready for those who need it president of the good of their day was here a few days ago and he spoke to evacuees who all expressed their desire for the government to close warring operations in magen now the president ordered a temporary halt of operations but that is only for fifteen days and residents say that is simply not enough because many of them who longer have homes to return to

7:38 pm
time for a comeback it's not ending it's the go for it's mr woods is he's back this time and
7:39 pm
winning as well tiger woods as want to first gulf solomons in five years a moment even he doubts it could ever happen again as he made his way back from spinal surgery that same shot when at the season ending saw championship proving that's not solely as the forty two year old back but so to its high go mania as pole underwear for ports i only tiger woods can create scenes like this on a golf course he required a security escort just to make it to the final green in atlanta as he closed in on his first tour title in five years less than a year ago he was ranked outside the world's top one thousand as he recovered from spinal fusion surgery i now he was tapping into when the season ending to a championship the eightieth title of his p.g.a. tour career and a victory that caps one of sport's most unlikely comebacks i certainly up there with all of seldom major temperatures from one player's world of championships.
7:40 pm
but this is under. different circumstances you know. of a explained throughout the year that i just don't know where whether you know when this would ever happen again or. i could somehow piece together a gossiping now on the sheriff like i could do it. there have been two hundred thirty nine p.g.a. tour events since tiger's last victory in aug twenty third tain back then he was still the world number one before his surgeries there were times when he was unable to move from the couch he was left questioning if he could ever return to the game little lone big competitive. probably the low point was not knowing a metaphor or. be able to live pain free again. am i going to will sit stand walk and just bill to play golf again and enjoy being with my kids and
7:41 pm
living that life and then long ball i'm able to to do this and. you know what a golf term. is now just two wins away from sam snead all time p.g.a. tour record of eighty two victories was his big holes. and now that he's got no with the hope you may see more of the old that we've all been waiting all or the last couple of years was the too short one a huge moment for not only tiger but as the crowds proved for the game itself also undoubtedly mean a lot to organizers of the game's biggest t.v. and the ryder cup which starts in france on friday for vender worth al-jazeera while a lot has happened in the life of tiger since he last enjoyed that winning feeling was lifted trophy number seventy nine in twenty third saying that year he won five tournament and was the world number one for injuries hits him in twenty four scene he had seen back operations sat's out the masters for the first time in
7:42 pm
a decade and failed to make the cut of the page a championship in twenty fifteen he missed the halfway cuts in three of the year's four major tournament and finished the year with more back surgery barely played at all in two thousand and sixteen skipped all four majors for the first time in his career and in twenty seven seen a personal and professional log pleading guilty to reckless driving after police found him asleep at the weight of his car woods also underwent back fusion surgery in a final bid to get back playing but this year a spectacular return to form finished sixth at the open championship joint second at the p.g.a. championship and he still has the ryder cup so come let's talk now for sports correspondent leigh welling slate how important is that we're not just for tiger but that the wider game of golf as well. for tiger woods transcends golf the difference is that he's a superstar one the most important sportsman of all time not just in the game of golf and his absence now has pretty much lasted
7:43 pm
a decade. obviously playing in some told us but the the real tiger we remember the one who was at the top of his guy that hasn't happened for the best part of ten years and we've seen a lot of different winners some people could put it forward that that's been good for the competition no longer have i got to try and somehow topple tiger woods but it hasn't been good for funds who simply want to see him play above anyone else tiger mania is a real thing sponsors as well the sport of golf has really suffered in his absence and it's an incredible comeback really even a year ago it just didn't look like a toll that he would be back in a position to challenge to win tolan's but it's been coming hasn't it in recent weeks and months he just looks a bit more like his old self and then this was the result the sport of golf was writing for and leigh you've been reporting from france on the upcoming ryder cup what does woods resurgence mean for that so on and now. the organizers are
7:44 pm
absolutely thrilled i can tell you that tiger woods is back because the ryder cup is a special tournament with special pressures and it's grown and grown over the years and that intensity between the united states and the european say means that it's about a team and not about one man however tiger woods just has that x. factor there's only so many standing in the singles match against the european playa the european player isn't going to be thinking i just need to get a point from white saying they're going to have to contend with tiger woods and the french public of course will be cheering the european same but they'll also want to go watch tiger pride of tigers holding parts they're going to be chairing all the why those they've got to take it are very lucky indeed they were from london eh thanks so much for that. well a goal from christiane or an elder helped eventis move three points clear at the top of italy's area when i low scoring in the eighty first minutes of break the

7:51 pm
question and released certain concerns as to what the handover process would be and indeed as to whether president ya mean would go and go quietly and that has been answered a short while ago so still a lot of surprise even the social media networks you know reflecting that surprise of how quickly and how smoothly in all intents that this handover announcement has come and this concession has come from president i mean i'm. so what's next then for the opposition. right now many of them are getting over the last couple of days and the overnight of the election sort of you know exhaustion but right now there's a lot of sort of consultation a lot of consulting with molly with the president elect. it's very much sort of his show now as the newly elected president of the maldives but here

7:53 pm
a free and fair election because the people have spoken and they chose the opposition candidate when the president elect won he's won with this fairly large coalition of many parties in the maldives the last time m.v.p. came into power in two thousand and eight within three months that coalition for part one of the biggest challenges that the president elect will have is making sure that the coalition stays together that is able to keep his partners happy this very diverse group of people that he's able to create a power sharing arrangement in a presidential system which is not an easy goal you'll have a lot of difficulties coming up especially given that there's a parliamentary election less than six months down the line the political campaigning you know the vicious sort of infighting that tends to come before an election will be president and that's a very big challenge not just for the president elect but for the modern community as well russia is planning to supply a specialist missile defense system to syria comes just days after one of its
7:54 pm
planes was shot down by inaccurate syrian anti aircraft far on sunday the russian defense ministry blamed israel for the incident in which twenty five servicemen died it says israeli jets hid behind its aircraft pushing it into the path of syrian fire israel denies russian accusations were a chance is in moscow with more. a couple of big steps from the russian defense ministry the headline one is that russia is intending to supply within two weeks the syrian military with the s three hundred air defense system a big improvements on the s two hundred system that it was it's currently been operating the second is that russia is going to start jamming on board radar systems sat nav systems military communication systems in the eastern mediterranean off the coast of syria which will make it harder for outside aviation
7:55 pm
powers to operate in the area now the s three hundred wars a deal that had been signed with syria a few years ago two thousand and thirteen but israel put its foot down and on the goetia ocean with russia russia decided that it was going to hold off delivering these units well in the aftermath of the events last week in which a russian plane was shot down in the area over the syrian coast russia has obviously decided to go against that agreement with israel now there is some difference it seems between the russian defense ministry and the kremlin over the handling of this the russian defense ministry is very angry with israel the kremlin seems to be wanting to play the issue down so it looks as if we might have a bit of a split between these two parts of the russian hierarchy when asked about
7:56 pm
this and whether it was directed at israel the kremlin said no it's not directed at any third party the ministry of defense though specifically named israel in its announcement. it is possible of course though that this could be being used as something of a bargaining chip by putin and that maybe over the next couple of weeks the situation will change slightly on the goetia action with. its counterparts in israel a small pro independence political party has been officially banned in hong kong raises new questions about free speech in the territory the government has cited concerns about national security for the move against the hong kong national party but it's invoked a colonial era lord that was used to target organized crime anyone who supports the hong kong national party could be fined or jailed. what the agenda of the.
