all areas there's all along the coast and inland and i would unfortunately suspect that that number may go up they need a lot of things i mean people for to begin with don't have shelter so we have sent trucks of goods so to the major areas that we have there we're giving people are like hygiene kits he can't tarpaulins mosquito nets because of the work stagnant water is a perfect breeding ground for or for malaria for dang eight centerfield kitchens tarpaulins chance we have fifteen water tanks we have eighty nine. all in tears and in addition to that health teams a surgical team water and sanitation we have a latrine team there those are solely to build the dreams so that we can try to reduce the health potential health issues that people might have so right now people need a lot we need a lot join us so he sort of zip code joins us now from jakarta thanks very much for being with us i understand the president took over dodos visiting the area or
intends to what's he been saying about the situation. indeed presidential coalesce for palu from his home town follow about an hour ago he made a statement just before he boarded the plane saying that he will personally inspect situation on the ground now in terms of information on casualties and extent of damage a lot of that information is not coming from the president but it's coming from the national disaster agency now this morning there are the latest updates that receive is first to efforts to find people trapped and the debris has been ramped up because. because some electrical generators have arrived in provincial city of palo now this morning we are also seeing some desperate scenes from the ground of a group of people trying to do to crumble
a department store now bear in mind that what we saw this morning with was a group of possibly. opportunistic group possibly opportunistic people because what they looted was not what they looted with clothes. or. other accessories i fashion items from from the department store now we did we did see reports of people looting fuel the therefore because there has been a scarcity of fuel now this morning the national disaster agency in this said that they are trying they are actually putting. as a priority in terms of restoring the supply of fuel because the supply of fuel it is very crucial in order to smoothen the logical and also the rescue efforts because as we know the electricity out out that is still happening there is very widespread so officials are relying on fuel from the electrical generators to
keep their operations going. we were just watching some of the extraordinary pictures from the island as they are as you as you were talking given the fact that this is a region which has experienced this kind of thing before is there a sense that the government is being good to be able to deal with this or is this on a scale that it's not used to. the government has actually seen as a must a larger scale of disaster we saw the two thousand remember the two thousand and four tsunami in that that was that was in fact the province of. which killed more than a hundred thousand people and just over a month ago the earthquake in lombok that's still over five hundred people so far so the. government has been trying to say is they're trying to come they're trying to make they're trying to to give extra assurance to the people that we have this we can handle this very mind the. the power noose incidents the the last recent
earthquake happened just over a month. from from the from the major quake and number of day is a sense among the communities that there that the capacity of the government might be stretched to the limit because it's situation in we are still are still reeling from the situation in lombok. we still hear reports of aftershocks a number for instance and now we are hit by these major quakes in palo also there's concerns about lack of information coming out from the hardest hit areas such as dongola it's been more than thirty six hours since the first since the quake first struck and yet we still haven't received any updates in terms of casualties or even even the accident of damages from the coastal town of nonviolence and that's actually quite a worrying sign so we're hoping that by the visit of president today at least that
would expedite some of the search and rescue and not just delivery process. thank you very much. when this from the powerful typhoon trami a battering japan's southern islands as it churns northwards towards the mainland dozens of people have been injured by strong gusts of wind and nearly three hundred thousand homes are without power flights have been suspended and people are being warned to stay inside western japan is still recovering from last month's typhoon gebbie which was its most powerful storm in twenty five years. brazil's far right presidential candidate has been released from hospital in sao paulo three weeks after being stabbed at a political rally the job also noddle flew back home on real addition to rio de janeiro on a commercial flight where he was both cheered and cheered by fellow passengers and while he stepped away in next month's elections thousands of people have been protesting across brazil against him latin america editor alysia newman has more.

running out of equipment and medicines and the struggling to cope with the number of wounded arriving every friday night when. i went to the border in the afternoon to take part in the demonstration i saw the israeli snipers shoot someone in the neck he was close to the border and i went to rescue him but when i got there i couldn't help so i ran back as i ran back i was shot in the leg i love the israeli army has killed at least one hundred ninety palestinians since the protests began on march thirtieth to demand the right of return for palestinians and an end to the israeli egypt's siege of the strip was the israeli army has been criticized by human rights groups and some foreign governments the using heavy handed tactics to disperse the crowds as well as live fire the israeli army used tear gas on the drawings and to gas fired from vehicles. israel says the palestinians are flying what it calls tara kites over the gaza fence that are causing far as and damage to property. however in
a statement on friday about the latest protest israel confirmed no soldiers were injured and local party damaged friday was the deadliest day the protests have seen in recent weeks and despite that they show no signs of slowing down diplomatic efforts are a standstill so there's no reason to doubt they'll come to an end anytime soon. north korea's foreign minister says continued to u.s. sanctions are deepening its mistrust of america re young whole address the united nations general assembly on saturday and he said pyongyang has taken a significant goodwill measures without a corresponding response from the trumpet administration shihab rattansi has more from the united nations. the north korean foreign minister picked up on a theme that we also heard from the chinese and russian foreign ministers of the un general assembly that the north koreans had shown their goodwill their commitment to denuclearization by dismantling that test site by ending the testing of nuclear
weapons and missiles it's time for the u.s. to take reciprocal action either easing sanctions or declaring an end to the korean war the north korean foreign minister pointing out that north korea has more reason to mistrust the u.s. than the other way around the u.s. after all is the only country in the world to actually use nuclear weapons against another country and has consistently threatened to annihilate north korea using nuclear weapons it was time for the u.s. now to act to. the i did the changsha is can bring us on our knees is a pipe dream of people who are ignorant about us but the problem is that the continued sanctions are deepening our mistrust the reason behind the recent deadlock is because the us relies on chorus of measures which are lethal to trust building without any trust in the us will be no confidence in our national security and under such circumstances there is no way we'll unilaterally cells first but the u.s. position here at the u.n. general assembly was consistent mike pompei own nikki haley both saying that maximum pressure still needs to be applied on north korea before new craze ation
and only then would north korea see the rewards however donald trump was very upbeat here in new york saying a great deal of progress has been going on behind the scenes that will be revealed shortly that he's not worried about timeframes so it will be interesting to see whether this latest appeal makes donald trump who after all is the most invested in this process in the white house think again about whether it's time for the u.s. to take reciprocal action mark fitzpatrick is the director of the nonproliferation program at the international institute for strategic studies and he says it would be easy for the u.s. to show they're acting in good faith. you north koreans had been insisting that the united states make a declaration of the of an end to the korean war this is not something that is really too hard for the united states to do they could do it while maintaining sanctions i think they should do it in exchange for a north korean real gesture there what north korea has done to date has been
without verification there is no legal connection between ending the war and the presence of u.s. forces there under a bilateral treaty with so korea and kim jong un himself said that ending that war would not mean the troops have to leave it's just that there is a certain about political connection that the united states is worried about the north koreans think that they can overcome u.s. resistance by going into the soft spot that they see in donald trump and he so unpredictable and so inclined to withdraw u.s. forces that they may have reason to think that they can make progress ideally with him first journalists in rwanda raising concerns over a new law criminalizing anything that humiliates a government official those who break the law either with words of pictures like cartoons and now face up to two years in prison and a fine but it remains unclear exactly how the law will be policed human rights groups have repeatedly criticized rwanda for clamping down on press freedom.
