zimbabwe is more than double the price of fuel overnight as the country struggles with its worst petrol shortage in a decade. and in just the last half hour or so the leader of venezuela's opposition has been detained this according to a message from his twitter account. the head of venezuela's opposition that congress which is disputing that it just in a sea of president nicolas maduro. so now some news from china where at least twenty one people have died after a coal mine collapse in the northwestern part of the country more than sixty others were rescued after the accident in the province the heart of the country's coal mining belt china has faced a series of mining accidents despite efforts to improve conditions the cause of the collapse is now under investigation. donald trump is fiercely denying the latest allegations over his links to russia the u.s.
president has been accused of keeping to himself details of a meeting with the russian president but in the putin in two thousand and seventeen the washington post says trump told his translator not to release any notes also anyone in his own administration will have been discussed a congressional committee is also looking into a report by the new york times which says the f.b.i. investigated whether trump was a threat to national security and working on behalf of russia trump denies hiding details of his meetings with putin why not released the conversation that you had with president putin in helsinki along with some other stops that might involve them. or on the whole lot of them world you need i would i don't care i mean i had a conversation like every president did you sit with the president of various countries i do it with all countries we had a great conversation we were talking about israel and securing israel and for lots of other things it was a great conversation i'm not keeping anything under wraps i couldn't care less
let's get more now from rosen jordan who's in washington so clearly president trump there trying to attempting to give the impression that he doesn't particularly care what information is made public though there is a sense that the accusations are escalating against him. well the washington post story is suggesting that on at least five occasions the president has interfered with the sharing of notes or information about his meetings with vladimir putin the russian president and in at least one case he actually took the notes from his interpreter and basically told her that you can't tell anyone i even took the notes so it's really two days worth of attention being put on the president's behavior since i come into office almost two years ago and it's the kind of attention that his critics say that needs to be investigated even
though the president's fellow republicans say they this is really no big deal that presidents have closed door meetings all the time democrats are saying that there needs to be an investigation and certainly they say that this goes to trying to figure out just what is donald trump doing on behalf of the american people this is dick durbin he's the democratic senator one of the ranking leaders in the u.s. senate. you know there are so many questions raised why is he so chummy with latimer putin's this man who is a former k.g.b. agent never been a friend of the united states invaded our allies threatens us around the world and tries his damnedest to undermine our elections why is this president trying to best buddy i don't get it and when he takes the interpreter's notes and wants to destroy them so no one can see what was said and written transcript you know it raises serious questions about the relationship between this president putin so possible
ramifications for this is we're hearing that democrats are calling for an investigation for subpoenas of those involved. they are calling for investigations but this is something where democrats can't just go ahead full steam and try to have these investigations they also have to try to deal with the other major problem facing the federal government which is the fact that there's a partial government shutdown with more than eight hundred thousand people not getting paid and about half of them not even being allowed to go to work to carry out their duties so this is just really a really difficult matter for them to say let's start investigating the president because not only are these workers not getting paid not only they not being allowed to do their jobs but they're starting to be spill on effects impacts on other people who rely on these workers for the business that they provide and the impact on the overall economy so even though there are now calls to take
a look at the president's behavior democrats are still locked in this battle with the president over trying to reopen the government so trying to move ahead full steam on investigations probably won't see as much of that as some within the democratic party might hope thank you very much from washington rosalyn jordan well as roselyn was mentioning that a partial u.s. government shutdown is now into its twenty third day with still no end in sight miami international airport has now started closing one of its terminals to avoid a shortage of security agents who have been calling in sick on friday eight hundred thousand federal workers didn't receive them monthly salary that's prompted food banks to set up pop up distribution centers and communities to organize for dennis for those affected. the lack of a paycheck definitely hurts us. in terms of mortgages and we have three girls so. daycare is not going to. take creditors will out there unfortunately.
there are a little nervous and hopefully. they're going to be able to figure out something so we can go back to work as that's really all we want to do us is more just a waste if you know that there's nothing that's going to come of this other than just a giant receiver just i want to look at me the big house course you are saying they will get it done to you so this is just a giant colossal waste of everybody's money and it's just ridiculous. the u.k. opposition when attempt to force a general election if prime minister to resign may's deal for leaving european union is rejected by parliament vote is due to take place on tuesday with most analysts predicting defeat for the government labor leader jeremy corbyn says he's ready to table a motion of no confidence in the nation's leadership my own view is that i would rather get negotiated deal now for we can to stop the danger of a no deal an exit from the maternity not so much which would be catastrophic for
industry catastrophic to trade and the long term effects of that would be huge i think parliament did vote for an amendment to the finance bill this week which indicated its opposition to no deal but isn't totally specific on it we will do everything we can to prevent and no deal except. the greek prime minister alexis tsipras says he'll call a conference vote in his government after his coalition ally quit giving him six seats short of majority his right wing defense minister resigned of ideals and a decades long dispute with macedonia its neighbor has agreed to change its name to north macedonia but. is still not happy catherine stansell has wall. the name change deal with macedonia was meant to remove what athens consider to be an implied claim to greek sovereign territory but it's led to a breakdown in greece's coalition government with the defense minister announcing that he and his party are quitting. i think the prime minister
for our collaboration and i explained that because of the macedonian name deal our work together cannot continue the independent greeks are withdrawing from the government the departure means prime minister alexis c. press is left with the minority and may struggle to get the deal passed by parliament or. do you have to go syria we will proceed immediately as is prescribed by the constitution with a vote of confidence in my government in order to move forward with a clear majority in resolving all the critical issues facing our country and society. caminos formed a coalition with c. process in twenty fifteen and he's never been shy about expressing his views against the name change greece and macedonia signed the deal in june it's meant to end a twenty seven year dispute with greece which has its own region called macedonia in exchange precinct reach to lift its objections to the balkan country joining
nato and the european union. on fire day the macedonian parliament approved a constitutional amendment to officially change the country's name to the republic of north macedonia. but the greek parliament needs a majority to ratify the deal something may find difficult with the departure of his coalition partner happenstance al-jazeera. heavy snow has been causing chaos across europe and more is forecast particularly vulnerable the homeless especially in hungry by sleeping on the street is now a criminal offense but he's a rounding up and find finding people sending money into hiding from the capital budapest jonah hall reports. the sleek clean boulevards of budapest this is how an increasingly or thorough tyrian government wants them to look no refugees or illegal immigrants and no no homeless people either we are just trying to enable our author of his to step up against something which we believe is
against human nature and human dignity and we would like public spaces to get their meaning back and operate as they were intended it's not a decision the government took lightly a previous attempt was ruled a violation of human dignity by the constitutional court so the government changed the constitution itself all of which is heartbreaking to people like youngish torak lives in a caravan after he lost his home his job even his family when a house fire and no insurance left him with crippling debt. i'm afraid of it and i can't say better i'm afraid it could happen any time i wake up every morning scared that someone may not call my door and say we can take your stuff away go elsewhere the government did sists it's looking after the people being swept off the streets but we take care of them we provide shelter provisions and all the support that is required not
a social workers but they believe that their system is not an assault on this problem heather and the government is about opening some new show there is about the numbers show that there are more than thirty thousand people leaving homeless in hungary at the moment there eleven thousand places. cycling through the city volunteers carrying food and blankets search for those who have not made it to a shelter for the night in a railway station underpass where dozens once slept they find just three people. too many people in this in the shelters so there is a one hundred person and their way is there more than one hundred thirty yards or so it's a too crowded and overcrowding in the shelters so the volunteers means many homeless people have gone into hiding making them even more vulnerable to the elements shelters like these this one is
a private facility barely come close to meeting the needs of the homeless on the streets and while it's obviously a good idea to get people off the streets in below zero conditions like this and volunteers are doing what they can that's not the point behind the government's decision to criminalize homelessness in hungary one social worker described it as projecting power over the powerless don't know how al-jazeera budapest. well there's more on everything we're covering right here on our website you will find news beaches and also comment and analysis don't forget you can watch us live on the website as well al jazeera dot com. here's a quick reminder of the top stories for you now the u.s. secretary of state says a rift between cow tarn its gulf neighbors has gone on for too long and is threatening regional unity my poem by oh is being in casts are as part of

gangs of young sides are threatening a violent confrontation at tonights the system. police arrived to reclaim the streets but it was too light and they were outnumbered. because. the focus on african gang crime began on march twenty sixth jane when violence broke out at the moon the festival at federation square in the center of melbourne i think we had two groups of of african young people coming together in melbourne there was a far cry get it became my rolling ball if you like some of that was because the place become involved and we started chasing they just people. they were saying

numbered around one hundred thirty young men. but after an intense crackdown on apex police it's now been dismantled we just don't see them you know we're just not saying. that group. crimes anymore. victoria police are basing further criticism which claims they've lost control to street gangs as might. be there is a specific problem in victoria to do with people of african background. i don't see it is as a violent african gang crisis. certainly we have an issue we have an issue with our youth in the state but i believe that we can timing that issue. everybody welcome to you know tell me who worked before so i had detective acting inspector child is
briefing her team before another night out on patrol just be careful that you don't skip tied up with other job so you are specifically he to respond to any higher being they're part of a dedicated task force tackling youth crime in melbourne's west so the way we're task force came about as a result of the evolution of the harm invasion offense and carjacking and breeze that was saying being committed by multiple. people born in sudan. make up zero point one percent of victoria's population but account for one percent of the state's alleged criminal offenders. young sudanese miles are overrepresented insertion violent crimes allegedly committing close to ten percent of aggravated robbery in terms of numbers overall numbers for that hard
crime. high impact crime the numbers are quite small when you look at youth crime in particular we have the second lowest crime right in this trial productivity commission measures victoria now as the most fearful state in the nation why are people feeling so scared if crime is dropping yeah i think that's a really interesting one as certainly you know one of the one of the things the victoria police and the cumi really need to focus on. to people have to base the have to feel saif so there's a lot of perception issues i think that we need to deal with this well.
