2:03 am
a complete report this is a background check i'm confident the f.b.i. did a good job and they were not hindered in any way so it's very frustrating and even the things i read. and i heard the term of the committee say that there is no hint of misconduct in plain english what i just read there are hints of misconduct the f.b.i. didn't interview ford or the witnesses she suggested and many other people who know kavanaugh say they tried to talk to the f.b.i. but were turned away further feeling suspicion and division in a fierce fight that is playing out in the capital and on the streets. for the future of the highest court and likely control of the congress come january. al-jazeera washington. the trump ministration is accusing china of trying to undermine america through political military and economic actions u.s. vice president mike pence said in a speech that china wants to sway the upcoming midterm elections against trump in

2:07 am
hear from under thomas who where people say they're grabbing what they can to survive but we begin our coverage with wayne hey he's about forty kilometers north in dongola which was the first area to be hit by the tsunami. the people of color have been largely left to fend for themselves their villages have disappeared and there's little else to do but search for anything that may be of value to the tsunami swept down this coast destroying everything in its path for days there was no communication with this area meaning the fate of almost three hundred thousand people was unknown the main road to the nearest city has been reopened but there's no sign of significant aid distribution. we have more food blankets and milk for babies because there's a lot of babies here and people have nothing to do because this is a fishing community and everything is gone so far the government says more than one hundred fifty died in which would have been much worse had the villages not been so
2:08 am
close to higher ground the epicenter of the earthquake was further up the bay on the other side so this was the most significant population closest to it and clearly the people here felt it very strongly they say when that strike they had just two minutes before the first wave came some who couldn't escape are still unaccounted for but there's no search operation and no heavy equipment the people say they feel neglected in what can seem like hopeless situations they look to leadership for help and in this case it's the indonesian president who visited on wednesday the remains of a house carry a message pleading with joko widodo not to leave behind he promised just over three thousand dollars for each family to rebuild probably going to don i hope the government will take care of us because we're tired of them making promises and not they're moving i hope this time the president is listening to us. right now there are more immediate concerns than rebuilding for the people along this coast it's
2:09 am
still about survival wayne hay al-jazeera indonesia. wherever they can people are grabbing whatever they can a supermarket warehouse spared by the earthquake and tsunami has instead fall into looters that taking not just food and water or essential if they personally need but anything they think might have value bags of razor blades shampoo nappies even paint i know it's not food but i can sell it it would only have got trampled if i hadn't taken it yet we've had no help no ate nothing cash still buys things even in a disaster zone but few people are working fewer still being paid and with banks an a.t.m. shut there's no way to access a things we've stopped some distance from that same because over the last few days some media crews have been attacked for filming looting but those we've spoken to
2:10 am
say they don't consider this looting or themselves as robbers but these are desperate times and they're not getting the official help they need. where people aunts looting they're begging the messages on the boxes read we are hungry with. our team gave a little but they and tens of thousands of others need much more. down by the water we found and both soccer walking around where until friday afternoon his house and those of many of his relatives had been he wasn't home at five o two when the earthquake hits but his mother cousins nieces and nephews were some of the children ran to higher ground but he says his mother and five others saw no need they'd run after a previous bigger quake in two thousand and five when no tsunami had followed this time they didn't hear a siren and saw nothing strange happening to the sea twenty minutes later it was much too late to run i didn't want to. i want to see what's left of my home maybe i
2:11 am
can salvage something we've had no help from the government just some water and noodles from people who have given to the charity. one thing the government says it is addressing is a chronic lack of fuel it's brought in three weeks normal supply of diesel and a week's worth of petrol and is flying in one hundred at the petrol pump attendants to get people through queues faster right now it takes fifteen hours to reach the front under thomas al-jazeera poller indonesia let's go back to our top story now the f.b.i. investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against president trump supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh for more on this we're joined by the former federal prosecutor sidney powell from dallas sidney powell democrats of criticize the f.b.i. probe saying it was hurried it was too narrow in scope and that key witnesses were not involved in now the f.b.i. stands accused of carrying out a fosco exercise under political pressure what do you make of it.
2:12 am
it's completely expected the democrats a veiled from day one that they were going to resist and opposed any one the president nominated for this judgeship brett kavanaugh has been one of the most outstanding judges in the country for more than a decade his reputation was completely unblemished until these last minute smear allegations that are totally uncorroborated by any actual evidence so it was totally predictable that they would take this position even though they were lauding the f.b.i. for completing the anita hill investigation with respect to clarence thomas and three days they're complaining about this one no matter what had been done they'd been complaining about it but there were several people that came forward saying they had evidence against cabinet people like judy swetnam who said cap and i was involved in the drugging and sexual assault of girls at parties it seems extraordinary that all of this was ignored. oh it's not been ignored julie
2:13 am
sweate nick has actually already walked back her claims completely there's nothing about her allegations that credible in any way shape or form the f.b.i. has done extensive background best a geisha ins on judge kavanaugh including four of the highest possible security clearance in the country and he has passed all of them with flying colors there was nothing to corroborate any of the claims made by miss what nic who actually kind of retracted her claims herself or miss ford they've interviewed scads of people hundreds of people in fact this is seventh background investigation and in all of them he came through with flying colors so what do you think will be the political fallout from all of this i mean with midterm elections just a few weeks away is it likely to sway voters do you think i think it will sway voters as best i can tell the republicans are going to prevail even
2:14 am
more than expected in the midterm elections because everyone's so fed up with the way the democrats have behaved in creating this smear campaign against judge kavanaugh it's completely backfiring on them they don't understand that the people who call the engine of this country and the people who work hard every day and take care of their kids and pay their bills and pay their taxes and some hold down two jobs really appreciate the work this president is doing even though he may be controversial at times they appreciate him trying to protect this country and put america first and they're fed up with these ok when it all cost tactics of the democrats let me get a final thought from you just to touch on judge kevin is kind of his own profession has questioned his judicial temperament of a twenty four hundred no professors in the u.s. have signed a petition saying the senate should not confirm him i mean that's quite telling isn't it that is unprofessional to do that. no not when you're talking about
2:15 am
law professors law professors rarely actually practiced law and they're among the most liberal people in the country judge kavanaugh has a stellar reputation among the federal judiciary he has placed more of his law clerks as law clerks for the supreme court justices both democrats and republican appointees than the other judges in the country he's what they call one of the top three feeder judges in the entire country his law clerks are most prized position and he's got an extraordinary and exemplary record in every respect so we have to leave it there thank you very much indeed for your time for them also to come here on the news hour including russian cyberattacks well now western governments unite in condemning the kremlin. zimbabwe takes drastic action as it tries to contain its worst cholera outbreak in a decade and in support christiane amanpour was sponsored allegations he raped
2:16 am
a woman that's coming up with peta in a sport and of the great. western countries have denounced russia cyber hacking attacks which they say are designed to undermine democracies and some of the strongest language use since the cold war britain warned russia had become a pariah state while the united states want moscow must be made to pay the price for its actions and russia has rejected the allegations calling them propaganda and has our report. the tools of the trade this spy equipment was found in the possession of four russian agents in a car parked outside the headquarters of the chemical weapons watchdog the o.p.c. back in april at the time the o.p.c. w. was independently analyzing the novacek used to attack script palin solsbury as well as identifying the substance used in an attack against civilians in the syrian
2:17 am
town of duma on the bush the g.r.u. operation was aimed at hacking in infecting the white fine network of the o p c w from close quarters we call that a so-called close access ack operation when they were discovered the russian spies trying to destroy some of their equipment but one of the laptops showed they had also been in malaysia trying to access the investigation into the shooting down of the passenger jet m.h. seventeen over ukraine allegedly by a russian book missile the timing of the dutch announcement came just hours after reports on russian hacking by the british national cybersecurity center part of the government's g c h q spy agency the n c s c assessment concluded that hacker groups calling themselves fancy bear sound wurman voodoo bear actually just the russian military intelligence agency the g r u the russian foreign ministry spokeswoman reacted scornfully to the british statements is going to arouse board
2:18 am
indiscriminately in one file or maybe an ina richie fragrance file everything was mixed up g.r.u. cyber spies kremlin's hackers what a hellish perfume mix the vivid imagination of our colleagues from the u.k. has no boundaries indeed who comes up with all this but the pressure on russia was further intensified at the meeting of nato defense ministers in brussels what we're doing by acting with our allies by actually isolating russia exposing the fact that these are actions of a state this is acting in a row. clisson indiscriminate manner this is not the actions of a great power this is a van actions of a pariah state and then the u.s. justice department weighed in indicting seven russian g.r.u. agents in connection to a series of hacking attacks as well as charges of money laundering wire fraud and identity theft it is evident from the allegations in today's indictment that the
2:19 am
defendants believe that they could use their anonymity to act with impunity in their own countries and on the territories of other sovereign nations to undermine international institutions and to distract from their government's own wrongdoing they were wrong most of the world's advanced spy agencies conduct cyber espionage but this wave of intense coordinates a diplomatic pressure on russia highlights the sense that even by the shadowy standards of international spying russia has overstepped the boundaries of what is acceptable paul brennan al-jazeera. now brazil's presidential candidates are set to take part in their final debate ahead of the first round of voting on sunday five candidates hold the best chance in a vote that's being described as the most unpredictable in decades far right voice jebel scenario is in the lead his social media following attracted by his tough
2:20 am
talk on crime and corruption numbers in the millions but both scenarios polarizing remarks on women people of color analogy between individuals could prompt many to unite against him in a runoff trailing behind him is former. fernando dowd he's the workers' party alternative to the silva he's the jailed former president who's barred from running older from the left is the democratic labor party's chito gomez he's a professor who studied at harvard but he's disliked by business elites of brazil's establishment prefers this man instead had a woman he's running on a platform of privatization and social program cuts and finally there's former and brahman minister silva the sustainability network's candidate is a strong voice on green issues well to raise about joins us live now from palo to resist so can this last t.v. debate help the workers' party candidate for them to how to win more votes.
2:21 am
well we're two days from the election and this final a vegetative all tonight a won't be attending but we do know that the same time the debate is happening every quarter which is a never ever angelika network will be airing an exclusive interview with him so he ever jellicoe charges calling a way for their followers to vote for john edwards and i don't until now the strategy by the workers' party for five member why that has been mostly to link to former president we've seen as you know a lot of in order to increase his chances of becoming results next president while that's throughout the day is expected to change today from on the about is expected to mean much more. gresson in a way we've been seeing some tweets by the workers party saying and telling that it will turn out a voted against for example a poverty fund but never doubted to vote in order to increase his salary there's also tweets that are comparing by the workers' party that are comparing it. with
2:22 am
health care so obviously there is a change in strategy here both went out oh it's chances of becoming brazil's next president have increased in recent days mostly because of people disenchanted and rage with the workers party with the corruption that happened while the workers' party was in power and also the recession that has been hitting this country for the last two years ok so what about joe the bolts of our attempt to be stopped at all. well even though his lead has extended in the last few days we're talking about a ten point lead between him and fed him out it's not enough yet students on the list say to win in the first round however the situation would be completely different on the second route and that's why we've been hearing some talk about an anti-fascist where in a way center left candidates will start calling for people to bolt for some go about in order to prevent small turnout all from winning the precedent however this
2:23 am
may not work what we've been seeing so far in brazil is that it works another vote having peace in northeast some brazil for example that used to be and is a stronghold for former president recent us who've seen that and also votes for women and also what i'm going to start saying is that many in brazil right now may be ashamed of saying that they will vote for the son out of my bed on sunday their vote may go for him or at such a reason. to result some too. now zimbabwe has started vaccinating people living in urban areas that tries to contain its worst cholera outbreak in a decade it's already killed forty nine people and infected thousands more the reports. the outbreak of cholera started hearing grenville a pool so that the capital harare around half a million people will receive an vaccine against cholera in the next few days another million doses will be administered in other densely populated areas at the

2:25 am
is not comprehensive enough. going out they should also go to the rule areas to give these doses so that this disease doesn't affect the whole country the vaccination program has begun just before the onset of the rainy season which normally increases the risk of new infections the government says is planning to raise thirty five million dollars to treat the current outbreak and to vastly improve harare's water and sanitation system victoria gayton be al-jazeera turkey's foreign ministry has summoned saudi arabia's ambassador over the disappearance of a dissidents journalist saudi official said jamal khashoggi disappeared after he left the consulate building in istanbul the turkish government believes he's still inside saudi had been living in self-imposed exile or writing columns critical of the kingdom and the crown prince. of well jamal because of his fiance hattie's told al-jazeera what happened at the saudi consulate in istanbul on the day he disappeared. because it happened on the second of toben mean

international aid effort. the international aid in africa bringing and things here and now we are in doha qatar capital and that we haven't seen it in a minute or one day now that they are the military airport and what they're doing at the moment and they're loading it with aid of course this is desperately needed it's a week off for that tsunami and earthquake hit the indonesian island of the no way these so they're bringing in tens they have medicine here you can see their year and drainage bag is right now on one of them up so they have also poured much needed medicine medical supplies water food items so this is one of the efforts that is now underway of course not the challenges still remain because of the the power of the earthquake and the devastation is that it's very difficult to get to these remote places so this is now going to be flown into jakarta into the capital

2:34 am
a genuine effort to maintain security. will conduct up to five attacks a month and we call dispose of forces in every area when iraq forces concentrate one busy part to another vacant area iraq wants to spend more than three million dollars to build a fence for the advance and watchtowers to secure the border against who are also known as. a geographical area across the border on the other side. this is very important not just for the coalition forces but really for the iraqi security forces and for iraq to prevent any. from the fighting in syria and coming into coming back into iraq. and to root out isis fighters the coalition backs iraqi troops on one side of the border and the mostly goodish syrian democratic forces on the other side. forward operations bases run inside iraq by the u.s.
2:35 am
led coalition but the french artillery is hitting targets inside syria the fighting has taken a major dollar in iraq's infrastructure and it's not over yet iraqis in remote parts see that security forces may control the daytime but the night still belongs to. and the real challenge is to counter rising from regrouping in either side of the euphrates river osama bin. the iraq syria border. india has deported seven ringette men it's the first time it's taken such action against the muslim minority for me and all its top court has rejected a petition to allow them to state the opposition accuses the right wing government of using the issue for political gain ahead of elections next year but reports. that being in india for about ten years six of them in a jail charged with illegally entry now these muslim or hindu me in iran they way back to a country with they say they endured five wins and persecution. they told india's
