10:49 pm
a is in brussels to try and delay the u.k.'s exit from the european union until the end of june. fearing rescues in mozambique where more than two hundred people have died thousands more are marooned ever since i call it i struck a week ago plus. i think it's a step on the right direction new zealanders welcome tough new gun laws introduced just days after friday's mosque attacks. at least forty people have died after a ferry capsized in the northern iraqi city of mosul around two hundred people were believed to be on board the vessel on the tigris. river they were celebrating the whole. well rescuers have so far pools twelve survivors from the water
10:50 pm
let's get to lisa still in this corresponds and that's a good name joins us now live from baghdad. what more can you tell us the video we're seeing on social media is revealing a very distressing picture on the tigris river in mosul we are seeing people picture video of what appears to be a ferry upside down we're seeing video of people jumping into the tigris river in an attempt to rescue others we can hear people along the bank screaming and we can see several people swimming furiously in what appears to be a rather swift current on the tigris river this is you mentioned is a national holiday here in iraq they are celebrating here and around the world no ruse the iranian new year this happened at a theme park in the northern city of mosul so you can expect that it was likely very crowded now there was an ability for people to take
10:51 pm
a ferry at that theme park along the tigris river we're told there were about two hundred people on board at the time and iraqi civil services are now saying that it appears that that ferry was beyond capacity when it capsized the numbers obviously are going to continue to change but we're now hearing that forty five people mostly women and children have died and about twelve people have already been rescued the very distressing images. very distressing picture that's emerging notably the claim that the ferry was over loyalty what would you say the safety records of ferries used for public transport has been lucky can a wrong. well i can tell you that we have two very seasoned producers here in the baghdad bureau they've been here since two thousand and three and both of them have said that this is unprecedented they simply cannot recall
10:52 pm
a time when there was an accident on a ferry due to it capsizing because it may have been beyond capacity but also involving the sheer number of people that we're talking about you can rest assured that iraqi officials are going to be getting to the bottom of exactly what happened on the tigris river today and why and if it could have been avoided that's a good name joining us there from baghdad thanks very much for bringing us on the latest on the situation. britain's prime minister to resign me is in brussels to defend her request for a break and fronts of leaders but he wants the block to extend britain's departure date from next week to the end of june but any decision to delay the exit must be taken by all e.u. member states unanimously e.u. leaders are expected to wait until a third attempts by may to get parliament's backing on her proposal so it is today
10:53 pm
is a matter of personal regret to me but assures extension would give parliament the time to make a final choice that delivers on the results of the referendum but we used to not forget that we here is leaders of twenty eight countries discussing the global challenges that we face and i've always said that all they were leaving the european union of course we will continue to have shared interests you know should be among those are shared security and prosperity so the u.k. will continue to be involved in discussions at these this summit these discussions are expected to cover issues like china ukraine just information and will continue to want to work with the e.u. on issues of shared interest when we leave. well paul brennan will have the latest from london in just a moment but first order of the hamid's is in a broad for the timing see this very much key at the ball
10:54 pm
but can you just give us a sense of the the atmosphere in brussels right now or are there any expectations of a breakthrough. well certainly you get the impression that the reason may has arrived here and she knows she's going to be put in front of some very tough questions and she must be pretty and the e.u. leaders are expecting her to have some very clear answers now over the past hour we've heard from german chancellor angela merkel she said what she's been saying all along that she prefers to work very hard until the very last through have a friendly divorce as she put it and then we heard just really just about fifteen minutes ago from felt present emmanuelle marquand he said the e.u. is ready and he said the u.k. must decide what it was he did say that respecting the wish of the british people was very important and was a priority but you do get a sense that really e.u. leaders are questioning to resume our server say what you have been telling us what
10:55 pm
you don't want tell us what you need now she said she's going to ask for an extension until june thirtieth that might not be possible because several e.u. leaders said that she must. that cannot go any extension cannot go past me twenty second because of the upcoming european elections i think what you're going to have by the end of the day is e.u. leaders saying yes we agree in principle on an extension but you have to go back to do you care you have to go back to the house of commons you have to make sure that you get a yes minicon meaningful meaningful vote this time and then we can talk about all the rest so i think you're not going to get a firm commitment for an extension but you're going to get an agreement in principle in terms of this extension of order we've heard about the shorts extension the long exemption you've been speaking with european leaders summit is there any indication at all which way they're leaning or is the ball very much back
10:56 pm
in the u.k. scores on this. well we did hear from some european leaders over the past few days that we've just specially french the french president that ok let's talk about a short extension but that doesn't mean that after that you can have a longer extension donald tusk yesterday very clearly said that there is brics and fatigue settling in and that this and that the e.u. also has many other files to do with not just bricks and everybody wants that to finish even though both sides if there's one thing they agree on is that everybody wants doesn't want rather no deal breck's is how you reach that is the most complicated thing yet i think terrorism may we'll have to give some sort of pledge that there won't be a long extension after that because the e.u. leaders have been saying listen we work for two years on this withdrawal agreement we're not going to spend another two years working on a bridge and
10:57 pm
a whole new withdrawal agreement so let's deal with what we have let's see what kind of amendment you need so you can be able to put it forward to the house of commons and you need to make sure that you will get a yes vote in return i think that's the situation at this point and it's really all now into the order of the reason may have a holder of the honeyed in brussels thanks very much for bringing us up to speed let's cross now it's a poll brennan here is live for us in london the poll we heard there the e.u. putting the pressure on the prime minister in brussels what kind of pressure is she facing back in the u.k. where you are. immense pressure yeah i mean theresa may is in brussels but frankly here at westminster the still feeling the repercussions of what she had to say the prime minister say in a televised address that took place on wednesday night where she essentially said that she was with the people and that the log jam over bricks it was all the fault
10:58 pm
of m.p.'s now that has gone down very badly indeed and i have. never really seen the prime minister quite so isolated and friendless as she is in regards to the situation here in westminster that she has now m.p.'s who have been exasperated are now becoming infuriated by the prime minister's strategy the clock is ticking we are now just eight days away from bracks it's and she's effectively managed to make everybody unhappy that the she will bracks it is who simply want to leave the european union come what may are very angry at the fact that promise to may has been effectively bounced into asking for an extension or albeit a short one other m.p.'s who want to see a more orderly withdrawal from the european union are extremely unhappy with the fact that theresa may still seems to be banging on about the post about reintroducing to the parliament another meaningful votes on the deal it's already
10:59 pm
been rejected very resoundingly by huge majorities twice already now there's a big question mark about whether the speaker of the house is like chairman of the debates will actually allow the prime minister to strike a meaningful victory in m.v. three as it's being called here the other thing is that the problem is that self might not want to introduce it because the numbers are simply not there there isn't enough support and it seems the support is that being away i mean i was listening to one tory backbencher from her own party who said he voted for her in n.v. to meaningful vote to be seriously considering not voting in favor of the deal in m.v. three so rather than this speech increasing the amount of support and trying to coalesce support around it's actually backfiring in quite a big way paul brennan thanks for bringing us that update that from westminster more from paul and what of course it's a. for the let's see other news the aftermath of a devastating storm is affecting tens of thousands of people across southern africa
