10:16 am
said that sixty eight people were killed during that cycle in the days after but it's expected that figure will rise because there is there's no communication people aren't able to call for help will determine where missing people are all just also the extent of the devastation and aid agencies is that just one of the biggest challenges apart from accessing areas especially rural areas in low lying areas where floodwaters are continuing to rise apart from having difficulty in accessing those areas they simply can't determine just how bad the devastation is aid agencies that have been able to fly overhead say that the floodwaters are of very high that entire villages have been swept away now here in bare away the thin true hospital is that services the city of half a million people the roof of that hospital was torn torn away during that cycle own

the rest of australia australia doesn't have the mass populist movements of europe or the americas but there are plenty of people who hold extreme views who can contribute to a divisive and often toxic political atmosphere prime minister scott morrison has joined calls for the internet companies to do more to control the flow of hate filled messaging we have spoken to die about the real enemy being hatred and intolerance this is the root of. extremism and. an admirable goal but the prime minister's critics say morrison's own reputation. is wall of dividing rather than unity brought out is there a city to the netherlands now where police have arrested a man suspected of shooting dead three people on a tram the thirty seven year old is now in custody after police launched a manhunt to find of the city of tricks but there was confusion over the motion for the attack reports. an empty tram on the corner of

10:21 am
prime minister mark speaking after two suspect was arrested said there was still some confusion about his motive but acknowledged he was known to its ortiz. there are many questions in rumors it is still unclear what the motives are behind this attack now predominantly there's a sense of horror and disbelief which prevails over the terrible events of today that innocent people have been taken away from their relatives in this way. this shooting on the country's busy public transport has shocked people in the netherlands who are unaccustomed to violent crime or gun murder. forensic teams are working through the night to uncover what really happened here. it's a testament to algeria now where opposition leaders a quarter on the president to step down at the end of his term next month brooke the flicka has confirmed he plans to stay in power beyond the april twenty eighth deadline but abandoned bed for a fifth term after weeks of nationwide protest has promised reforms but hasn't

may be a little while yet before we have a precise idea of how this is all going to turn out no doubt it's a major blow to the government's hopes of holding a third vote on trees amaze briggs it deal this week perhaps at all much will depend on what happens i think at the european union council meeting at the end of this week will for instance reason may turn up there and as she's now mandated to do by parliament as a result of the vote last week ask for an extension to the brakes a deadline and a long one this time in the absence of an agreed deal might she be on bended knees begging for more in the way of concessions something she can contain in a letter a suffix to the deal that might satisfy the speaker and allow a vote proceed next week might she dispense with both of those options and fall back on the ultimate threat of a no deal exit at the end of next week dangle that over the speaker's head and see if he changes his mind aside those options there are two issues of parliamentary procedure that seem to be possible one would be
10:24 am
a vote in parliament to overturn this step this parliamentary procedure this precedent that goes back hundreds of years in the rule books the speaker said yes that might be possible if you can get a majority the last option is a radical one it has been done before could it be done again the pro gay ssion of parliament closing down this session of bottom of the queen would have to be involved she'd have to order it it would be reopened immediately with the queen's speech in order to be able to put the vote to a third to parliament for a third time in a fresh session of parliament could that happen who knows is the short answer. to france now where the chief of police for paris has been fired and the government says it will shut down this weekend's yellow vest protest if it becomes violent it's in response to saturday's a virus which saw people ransacked and burned shops along the shops and is a yellow vest protests began four months ago after president of value electron introduced a fuel tax hike the increase was later scrapped the protests have continued your
