12:00 am
cool so what the state twenty eight celsius to make the most of it because temperatures will struggle three seventeen degrees by thursday afternoon. this is al jazeera. this is the al-jazeera news hour live from london coming up. so the measure the news coverage on the another crushing defeat for the u.k. prime minister as politicians once again reject a you withdrawal deal. crisis for boeing the seven three seven x. eight is grounded in many countries after sunday's crash in ethiopia that killed
12:01 am
a hundred fifty seven people. u.s. backed kurdish forces resume their offensive on the final stronghold in eastern syria. in school the titleholders suffer a setback in the asian champions league. draw it's a scam. to reason raise breck's it strategy has been dealt a devastating blow after the house of commons rejected withdrawal agreement on overwhelming majority for the second time so the no no no no no no there just seventeen days to go before the u.k. is due to leave the european union the prime minister says m.p.'s will now get a vote on whether the u.k. should leave without a deal the e.u. says the chances of this happening having creased significantly. two hundred forty two m.p.'s voted in favor of the deal and three hundred ninety one were against
12:02 am
a defeat of one hundred forty nine votes for the prime minister in january the last time this would deal was put to a vote she lost by two hundred thirty votes i profoundly to the decision that this house has taken to it i continue to believe that by far the best outcome is the united kingdom believes the european union and an orderly fashion with the deal. and that the deal we've negotiated is the best and indeed the only deal of the. that is to speak i would like to sit out briefly how the government means to proceed to weeks ago i made a series of commitments from this dispatch box regarding the steps we would take in the event this house rejected the deal on a i stand by those commitments in full therefore tonight we will table a motion for debate tomorrow to test whether the house supports leaving the european union without a deal on the twenty ninth of march. opposition labor leader jeremy corbyn is again repeated his call for
12:03 am
a general election the government has been defeated again by an enormous majority and they must now accept their deal their proposal the one the prime minister's port is clearly dead and does not have the support of this house. the prime minister's run down the clock on their caucus run run out on a maybe it's time instead we had a general election and the people could be good who the government should be. now as he joins us live from westminster said or if there is uncertainty of wrecks it just goes on and on. yeah and you know given what's an historic night this was was supposed to be. the most extraordinarily flat atmosphere there on many m.p.'s outs it's certainly compared to when she lost the last meaningful vote by two hundred thirty and this is this is incredible sense of demoralization basically inside the conservative policy that they have just completely lost the plot and lost their way
12:04 am
and ultimately the defeat for some reason makes a night means that she has darrag a seat and handed over power in the immediate next couple days to m.p.'s with the free vote tomorrow on on no deal and then another one on thursday about a delay and they're going to power again past that so the european union is seeming there's a delay because the european union then gets to decide how long the delay should be and so there is overwhelming sense that the government has lost control entirely now of its own agenda and there are very many more questions than there are. as i'm joined by tom brake who's the liberal democrats bracks it's been the only more if you want to view a second referendum of course any more confidence at the moment that given this tonight that you might get that yes because it's very clear that the prime minister's deal is going nowhere there's no point in her bring it back for a third time if she really wants to get a deal in front of the people given the parliament has rejected it one of the options and we've put this to her is for her to be willing to work with us and we
12:05 am
would facilitate that we'd hold our noses but help her deal to get through on the basis that in return she would be willing to put it to a people's vote and give the people a choice of zero thirty or stay in the european union but that of that was a labor party idea than it was and we will backing but at the moment labor party holding back on that they don't that because it's still going on about a general election well yes i mean that they've had one attempt at having a general election that didn't work frankly i'm worried that in reality there are certain people around jeremy called and jeremy called. himself who frankly are going to do everything they can to avoid there being a people's vote yet that is what the people in the country are wanting and incidentally that is what labor party members want to just help what we through the corridors the next couple of days on the assumption that this time tomorrow parliament will have. to vote it down leaving without a deal then the that the logic would suggest that the vote on thursday for
12:06 am
a delay would would automatically follow it is that you're thinking too yes and that's my thinking too of course what we will need tomorrow at the end of this vote where parliament will have voted totally to rule out no deal is for the leader of the house or bring forward a business motion that sets out what's going to happen on thursday and i'm waiting to see the color of that before i believe it's going to happen but assuming it does then we will vote to extend article fifty a question mark about whether the government would actually offer what generation of extension they would want to see because should presume m m p's count votes you know whether or not to have a delay and unless they know how long the delay might be so the government would have to say in advance of the vote wouldn't they well i mean the government could always put forward a proposal i think it would be astonished if the government put forward a proposal for an extension that was anything other than a couple of months but then of course it is a motion that can be amended and therefore there would always be scope for other m.p.'s if they wanted to to amend it to two requests
12:07 am
a longer extension and then vote on the end of the year i mean your opinion is making it very plain tonight that they won't allow an extension because they have the power to do this unless it was for a really good reason and a couple of months of just drifting along aimlessly like this isn't isn't that their monthly dem allowed my they know and in the past what they've certainly said is for the purposes of a general election if the u.k. decided to have a general election or indeed for the purposes of people's vote they would allow an extension without clearly not a very understandable reasons keen on the u.k. simply saying we need another extension because as a state of chaos in the u.k. parliament and we don't what we doing that's why. i think the next stage has got to be some mechanism for providing some clarity to the european union about what he says we all are actually going to do to arrive at a position where there is a common view that can get through parliament mccain and that and that presumably implies that we were going to wrap it up but implies presumed a longer extension doesn't it because well because you know a new deal is never going to happen in a no match for months so it would look to
12:08 am
a longer extension of sleeping on a time thank you very much in the fifty's on the savings i was saying power drifting away from governments into the hands of and m.p.'s from all sides of the free vote some more announcements of the european union who then have decided that summit next week what sort of extension they would allow but if he was alone then the prospects of any bracks it happening that sol would have paisa be increasingly remote whether or not there's anything like an election or a second referendum. thank you very much still to come on out here news. thousands of protesters have returned to the streets across town chariot demanding immediate political changes. but is right as chief prosecutor has asked the supreme court to investigate opposition leader. over alleged involvement in the ongoing power outage. and in sport the title holder has suffered a setback in the asian champion's league and is here with that story.

12:11 am
the safety of the seven thirty seven max the biggest users of the aircraft american airlines and southwest continue to fly the plane as do several foreign carriers and at the moment based on our safety assessment there is no requirement to take any action the aircraft is safe to fly speculation into the cause of the two separate crashes has centered on flight control software the u.s. federal aviation administration plans to require a software enhanced meant that boeing says will be deployed on the next fleet in the coming weeks boeing says the update to maneuvering flight control and pilot display software would make quote an already safe aircraft even safer passengers might be confused but investors have reacted decisively they have hammered boeing stock costing the company billions of dollars in market value boeing had hoped to use this plane to overtake airbus in market share but now the company is just struggling to survive there is precedent for a global ban in two thousand and thirteen boeing took its massive new dreamliner

12:14 am
a number of fighters are still holed up there considered to be do die hard towards the world's who are willing to fight until the bitter and it's still unclear how many civilians are in there or how many relatives of these eyes of fighters inside but whose this is something that has taken the kurds by surprise over the past few weeks thousands and thousands of people have streamed out and up to sixty five thousand are now held in one camp alone in the hall where conditions are extremely difficult be. who's the one who was expecting such a large number is all there are also reports that about one hundred fifty fighters have also surrendered on tuesday during the day now that is the pattern that has been ongoing also bombing yet now intense shelling. somehow the light of

12:16 am
been its longest war in history also on another key point what the u.s. calls assurances on counterterrorism we understand that's the taliban making a commitment not to support al qaeda what will happen to those two draft agreements is the leadership will go back to their respective commanders the taliban to afghanistan and pakistan the u.s. special envoy zalmay khalilzad back to washington d.c. to brief the secretary of state might pompei oh and quite possibly the president the u.s. secretary of state just happens to be coming to this region in the next week. well taliban and us show no signs of slowing down the battle in afghanistan even as they conclude that round of peace talks in qatar the u.s. has conducted a series of airstrikes against taliban fighters in the last week but local

united nations says north korea is using increasingly sophisticated methods to violate international sanctions aimed at pressuring them to give up their nuclear program a new report says they're stepping up illegal ship to ship transfers of oil and coal using middlemen to sell arms to yemen libya and sudan and hacking global banking systems i can or spoke to the coordinator of the panel short report. north korea is focused on generating foreign currency revenue. and getting the oil and petroleum products that they need to keep their economy in both military and civilian functioning the panel's findings would appear to flesh out the findings of u.s. intelligence as explained in the senate hearing that happened last month the difference is the panel provides a lot of evidence photographs documents recordings e-mail
12:34 am
correspondence left to us so we do it in a manner that can be used by courts and used by member states around the world and international organizations as the basis for legal action has president trumps diplomatic engagement created a breathing space for north korea to explore all loopholes within u.n. sanctions i was a bit surprised you're in the singapore summit and all the meetings to see chairman kim's luxury palm the mercedes limousines which the panel has been investigating for several years now appearing in the streets of singapore another member state national capitals these cars were illicitly obtained from the united states from a u.s. company they were shipped out of long beach by a chinese businessman called george small whose company c. jet was earlier involved in prohibited military shipments to. africa to the
12:35 am
republic of congo so these things i find a bit surprising and i think that it's useful to pay attention to things that to ensure we don't condone illicit activity that violates the resolutions and showcase them through the patient true of summits what would you like to see from the security council in terms of plugging these high. all that north korea has exploited so successfully i think this latest report focuses more on recommendations to member states. to influence the private sector to companies and individuals to do a better job yes president donald trump has submitted his plans for next year's budget to congress but it's already been rejected by the opposition democrats trump is once again seeking billions of dollars for his promised border with mexico it's
12:36 am
exactly the same issue that led to a budget deadlock and the government shutdown at the start of the year our white house correspondent kimberly hellcat has more. it's a budget president donald trump knows will never be approved by the u.s. congress still his white house unveiled its fiscal priorities for the camera. trumps twenty twenty budget calls for deep cuts in federal spending including big cuts to government programs that help low income americans boosting spending for the u.s. military. but the headline another push for billions to build a wall along the southern border of the united states and mexico he's doing his job he's doing what congress should be doing he took an oath of office and he has a constitutional duty to protect the people of this country if trump's request for border while funding sounds familiar it should be was a trump twenty sixteen presidential campaign promise we're going to build a wall and mexico is going to pay for the wall it's
12:37 am
a promise that led to an historic government shutdown at the end of twenty eighteen trump asked congress for five point six billion for his wall it approved just one point three for border security that's when the u.s. president declared a national emergency to access more than eight billion already approved funding donald trump's emergency funding declaration has already been blocked in the house of representatives now the senate is poised to do the same trump is expected to veto those efforts to keep his funding intact in addition to the new money he's requesting trump knows his latest request sets up yet another fight with congress so why is he doing it this is not about spending this is not oh this is not about what's good for the u.s. government this is the president essentially handing out candy to potential voters in the lead up to election day two thousand and twenty that's what trump's counting
12:38 am
on given this budget is mostly political not practical it's little more than a wish list of priorities the president intends to push on the campaign trail as trump makes a case for a second term in the white house kimberly helped get al jazeera the way. is raising fears the forces have clashed with worshipers that the al aqsa mosque foresee a temporary closure of the compound very force it has more from occupied east jerusalem. over here in the streets in occupied east jerusalem outside the old city a few hundred meters away from the iraq's a mosque compound and it is here in these streets an alley ways where the last prayers of the day have been taking place that's because access to the old city has been very severely restricted access to the alex a mosque compound known as the temple mount to jews has been entirely cut off after an incident earlier on tuesday afternoon israeli police say somebody threw a monocle amount of cocktail or a fire bomb at
