6:47 am
there's donald trump the town through the eyes of the world's jannah least that's right out of a hamas script that calls for the annihilation of israel that is not what that phrase means. listening post as we turn the cameras on the media focus on how they were caught on the stories that matter the most in battery a free palestine. on al-jazeera. on march twenty fourth thailand will hold its first general election since the two thousand and fourteen military coup most thais are hoping for political stability but after years of military rule will this election be b.s. join us for live coverage as thailand vote on al-jazeera. be chips for democratically elected president ousted and held incommunicado since to. thousand and thirteen events shrouded in secrecy so power change hands as the military seize control from its commander in chief for the first time al-jazeera reveals
6:48 am
exclusively what happened behind closed doors directly from those who witnessed it firsthand more see the final hours on al-jazeera. we understand the differences. and the similarities of cultures across the world so no matter how you take it al-jazeera will bring you the news and current affairs that matter to you al-jazeera. say to discuss with for their leaders all requests for extension. but will the u.k. prime minister get delay to breaks it we're live in brussels where e.u. leaders will deliver their verdict.
6:49 am
on or in tears as al-jazeera live from london also coming up donald trump vows to recognize israel's sovereignty over an area seized from syria. thousands of people remain marooned in mozambique and zimbabwe a week. devastated the region. brazil's former president michel terrorism rested in what's become latin america's biggest anti corruption investigation. you know we begin in brussels where e.u. does a wrestling with u.k. prime minister to resign may's request for a delay to bret's it uniters were expected to announce their decision several hours ago but they're still locked in talks writes it is now just over a week away e.u. so far insisted that they won't change the brics it withdrawal deal they've agreed with the u.k. prime minister and that the british parliament must back it but that deal has been
6:50 am
rejected by u.k. and peace twice already to resume has spent the day in the belgian capital appealing to european leaders to approve it today it till the end of june. is outside the british parliament in westminster first to lawrence lee in brussels this looked like it was settled hours ago what happened and what went wrong. well i mean there's various different ways of explaining that one is that under the terms of what to pay is now to be a new deal bricks a day might not be next friday it's all with or without an extension but effectively what happened was they did it's a reason they came here and said one extension had looked like they were going to give us some sort of extension on the assumption of how do we get through until may the twenty second but then she apparently was so evasiveness in a question and answer session with the other twenty seven members of the european
6:51 am
union join the afternoon that effectively they just said so let's go and sit in the room over there and if you can't tell us what your plans going to be if you lose your vote for a third time next week then we're going to come up with an alternative plan for you and then they went off to have their dinner. and from all the sounds of it flashed out any number of different options of dates and plans and only sort of thing and now looks like they might have got so position where they're going to say to her and apparently she has some agreement that they have her agreements on this she can have a vote next week if it passes then the u.k. would leave on may the twenty seconds that is effectively as it was but the new thing is that the now suggesting to her that if a deal doesn't pass next week then she can simply stand up and say fine that said i'm off the u.k. is leaving on friday that deadline will be moved to april the twelfth which is the day after the u.k. has to say it is going to participate in european elections at the end of may and
6:52 am
so by april the eleventh if a deal doesn't pass next week the u.k. would either crash out whole if parliament gets its say its way and takes over the process from to resume a then it could ask for a much longer extension based on the new plan and that could extend rex's through to the end of the year under a new plan so you know all. you can say about all this is basically the european union being so fed up with a total lack of clarity from stories in may as to what would happen if she loses a deal next week i decided to take power away from her and so and set the terms themselves and also i think has the effects of offering the u.k. parliament's about the wilfully more weeks to basically try to get past the reason may and come up with some sort of alternative suggestion of its own that they could put to the european union alongside a much longer extensions of brics it. thank you very much indeed for joining hollis live at westminster so how will this go down with that midwestern city thing with a pretty parliament that. well how it goes down here
6:53 am
maybe getting a little bit ahead of ourselves because the first thing we've got to ask is whether she will actually accept these new terms and i think there is sufficient unpredictability in the system here to suggest that she may well not it's all predicated on the idea that theresa may would do anything to avoid no deal that may be a false premise but bear in mind this is a prime minister who is where she is in brussels right now on the back of a letter she sent to donald trump don't ask rather that she didn't run by her own cabinet she didn't run it by parliament certainly. and she gave this extraordinary speech to the nation last night using absolute derisory language about parliament blaming parliament for the mess that. this country finds itself in she doesn't appear to have run that by anybody this talk about that there's a rift between her and her chief whip that she should foresee in her body who's now
6:54 am
openly walking around saying that that speech last night was appalling increasingly there is the image of this prime minister as a sort of lone wolf prime minister acting alone and capable of just about anything and the thinking is that great fear here is that she may well have decided that no deal is the best second option after her deal therefore what's to stop her. say to brussels that thanks very much but no thanks i'll take my chance of a deal next week if it fails i'm fine with no breaks it particularly up against the option of a long extension which he knows could split a party apart dilute bricks and possibly extinguish it all together at so i think there's a real worry about that they will be efforts next week to table an amendment to her deal when she brings it to parliament here to try and overturn the business of parliament to take that control away from her possibly delaying bricks it by a bit but the ultimate problem is there's no plan b. so all you achieve is move the deadline
6:55 am
a little bit down the road without really getting rid of any of the jeopardy jonah hill thank you very much indeed and of course bring that to news conference from brussels as soon as it happens. is president donald trump it says it's time the united states fully recognized israel's sovereignty over the golan heights in a tweet trump said the golan heights is a critical strategic area for the security of israel and for regional stability the region was captured by israel during the six day war in one nine hundred sixty seven from the syrian army israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu fact what he called a bold move. and just being history. i. believe is your.
6:56 am
first. right. to the truth. you will be able to. read this group or you will. israel and syria fought two wars over the good and heights the key conflict was in june one hundred sixty seven when after defeating egypt and jordan israel captured the area from syria six years later syria attacked and tried to regain control of the area but was repelled and nine hundred seventy four syria and israel signed an agreement establishing a un buffer zone there but in one thousand nine hundred one israel announced it was an exciting the going and heights this is not recognized internationally mike hanna has more from washington. in one presidential tweet president trump has
6:57 am
effectively reversed more than fifty years of established u.s. policy by recognizing israel's sovereignty over the golan heights he's also flouting international law and international precedent international law states clearly underpinned by un resolutions that it is illegal to create sovereignty over a land that has been occupied by force and interestingly enough this is precisely the argument that the us has used to the united nations criticizing the russian invasion of crimea this a contradiction apparently ignored by president trump but not by israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who's greeted this with joy no doubt well aware that his standing is going to be increased given that there is an election in israel taking place next month so certainly president trump handing the israeli prime minister a form of a political lifeline and at the same time reversing what has been
6:58 am
a longstanding u.s. policy in the region a trail of death damage and flooding is continuing to devastate southern africa one week after psycho barreled through the region mozambique zimbabwe and malawi have been hit the hardest or the one point seven million people are affected many have lost their homes spending days without food or water after there is malcolm webb is traveling through one of the west hit regions the system dangar district in western mozambique close to the border to zimbabwe. cyclamen die ripped through roads and washed away bridges. our journey from. began in small boat made of tree bark. then a few kilometers down the road another broken bridge. the cyclamen split central mozambique into islands cut off from road access. we met knocking on
6:59 am
a sire who hasn't seen our husbands who for storm mobile networks are cut off and made the crossing to find him. it is good but what choice do we if. i. just say something that is happening and being us the actual helping us to cross to get. people to cross to reach loved ones food. to refine whatever ways they can. after we've broken bridge we paid to ride him or to have a vehicle we could find most people here don't have the means to travel far like this. when we reach low lying planes but the storm damage is worse than this we have burst its banks. it's total devastation homes have been destroyed crops blasted by the wind and rain field off the field of them completely destroyed
7:00 am
so a lot of people here will be very hungry. more than three quarters of mozambicans live on less than two dollars a day many people here subsistence farmers. what's left in the field was their food for the year ahead. they held. the any sign of it a helicopter makes one circle and flies off possibly an aid agency taking a survey and people can only hope they'll soon bring food and shelter. but with so much damage to the roads it'll have to come by at. the last broken bridge just before she has been made possible with some blown down cables. and tell us the money's trying to reach the town check on his family. hundreds of died. i'm a survivor but i've suffered too much not just physically but also psychologically .
