the one that had more than two hundred persons on board the ferry also lack safety equipment as you see search operations are still underway the city is in total shock and the government has declared a mourning period. where we've managed to reestablish. flood ravaged big for me you were talking to us about the search and rescue operations give us a sense of how those are are continuing. well those are rescue operations are now into the eighth day and they are ongoing but perhaps not at a pace at which many people would like we were out on a boat last night on the boozy river leading into boozy which is one of the most hard hit areas and we came across at least two hundred people at one point who had been waiting there for days they hadn't eaten slept or had any water to drink and the boat we were on was with a fisherman who was using his resources to help aid agencies are doing whatever
7:33 pm
they can but the there are a number of challenges reaching some of these areas is very difficult because the air is just so fast it reaches at least one hundred and twenty five kilometers now we're at the port in peril where a lot of people who are rescued out brought this is one of their first stops the indian navy in fact has set up a medical center where they can attend to those who need help as soon as possible but to give us a better idea of what they're doing we're speaking to commander. in chief who who has been you know for a couple of days you've seen about five hundred people so far do you expect that number to grow and what are you seeing possible a very good opportunity to you and very good up to the people of mozambique of you have landed here on the eighteenth of this month and of you've been undertaking operations since the eighteenth so far we've rescued two thousand people and you provided medical aid to those who returned it personally we have seen
7:34 pm
a lot of things with snakebites with handicapped people in malnutrition and we have been doing our best to aid the nation with i also thank the republic of mozambique for helping us to aid this nation in need we were heading for a different mission however on the directives of our government of india we have been diverted to the euro to aid the country and help the people to reconstruct the nation a commander you were diverted here because of just how desperate the situation is we know that what is a reaching. as high as eleven meters you've mentioned some of those rescue risk you operations looking at the people who come into the sport they have not had medical assistance throughout this time one of the people telling you yes it's unfortunate that you know they have been rescued from a secluded island where the medical assistance is hard to reach we're trying our level best to ensure that we'd send medical assistance to the island as well as the people who are being rescued from the island are brought here and we do whatever best we can we have the position the doctor at the island also with two medical
7:35 pm
teams to provide emergency aid to war is requiring quick attention the rest of the people are brought down here and we get into them as far as we can and yes we have limited in some places we have come for a different purpose and the word whatever best medicines and whatever aid that we kept we've got two doctors and four medical assistants were working round the clock to ensure that the country comes up as fast as possible and in addition we've got to community services we've got close to four hundred men in three ships and do community service personnel who have been doing community services bringing up their hospitals being of their schools so that the city can come up and the country can. we brought back to the stage where it was boarded twenty days before come on to thank you very much for that then re bolding the city of barrow is of course a massive challenge for the government here now what is concerning is that the thigh clone and the flooding that followed the thin have created an island vera and
7:36 pm
boozy are completely surrounded by water that means it's very difficult was applied to come into this area and a number one concern of course is a water keen fraƮche water the water here has been contaminated we do expect there to emergency personnel will continue to find the bodies of people in the water as well as animals and so the need for water is quite dire as well as food the theory is completely cut off we've seen long lines that just one of the banks that are managing to function here but there really is a challenge for people in their authority to move on from the destruction caused by that like loan and of course that flooding from either we were hearing earlier from our our colleague malcolm he's in one of the more remote areas. expressing that. those challenges we will come back to you hear more about the challenges and the relief efforts but for now thank you so much for joining us from mozambique. turn

that the demonstrators have been the. model. and everybody knows that it's a bit of the cop cannot. run the country he has not been seen in public for the last. few months since november first he hasn't spoken to his people since may two thousand and. and the president would have because a circle has been for the like house of cards over the last week or so ok and just just briefly we're starting to see the moments of what the protesters challenge is obviously for beautifully because in a circle as you say where does the military stands in this so they are likely to be at a tipping point for the time being the military has been making just statements. a little is to protect the integrity of the country so we are not going to get involved in politics there were so you know that we are the product of the people
7:40 pm
and we will protect the people for instance the chief of staff that not one single one of the. would be no julian blood would be spilled so so far so good the protesters have been in the constitution. in the moderation has been peaceful and civil. things would continue and we will continue to cover that story thank you so much professor from university thank you. well it has been almost four years since the sodium rotty led coalition started its military offensive against the rebels in yemen the war has devastated the lives of millions of yemenis many are on the brink of starvation bianca good to follow as the journey of one girl and her family's efforts to keep her alive. after is ten years old and weighs just nine kilos that's a third of what

7:42 pm
they're not hungry i'm able to deal with the hunger but they can't while we are still poor the u.n. says two million yemeni children need food aid to survive there is food in the markets but the price of these vegetables for instance has sold out of reach for most models we used to get five killers of rice for fifteen hundred reals before the war and now we get them for thirty five hundred rails and sugar we used to get a pack for two thousand reals and now we get it for five to five thousand five hundred and the price of wheat is going up to nine to ten thousand there are many more children like afaf in yemen today so many a man nourished making them easy prey for diseases like cholera. doctors in this and a hospital struggle to cope more than hundred suspected cases have turned up in just one day. and the lives of so many depend upon peace especially here in the

7:45 pm
so for the sport here's joe thank you a year after a straining cricket was rocked by a ball tampering scandal one of the three players who put them there is preparing to take a leadership role cameron bancroft has been named as captain of english county he'll make his debut for them in mid april bancroft was given a nine month suspension for scratching a ball with sandpaper during the third test against south africa in march last year teammate steve smith and david one as fans and next week well has been some negative reaction online but local sports journalist nick laughlin believes most of its arms fans and players will get behind bancroft. he's going to be welcomed into durham not just as a partner but i think as a bit of a figurehead as well because this is a very i don't he's not overly experienced but this is a very young squad a dharma moment as well and i think his experiences over the last you know the last . of them if you look at his life experiences coming back in the
7:46 pm
cricketing fold as a house i think they can possibly experience that now it's not a level of calmness and understanding and a lot that you can place in the terms of what because remember paul collingwood kept at this side the squad for many years he's called it did now retire at the end of last season and there's a lack of real authority of leaders in the squad at the moment if you like and i think that yes like i said it could be a gamble it might work it might not board i think in terms of making a step it's certainly a bolt and probably positive move the goal has been if he day says bank and risk a storm to victory at indian wells now the canadian teenager has made it into the second round at the miami open and risk to halla and that sets from me on the scene a stands up next to stevenson altus here. nothing

7:49 pm
condemnation of president donald trump's apparent plan to recognize the occupied golan heights as israeli. hello i'm the stars here today and this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up . we are alone. we are to go to. new zealand as united as a nation to mark one week since the last attack that killed fifty people. sitting uncomfortably e.u. leaders agreed to a break said delay boss it comes with conditions. and the work is rescuing people from rooftops and three days after mozambique's devastating floods.
7:50 pm
while there's growing condemnation of the u.s. president's plan to recognize the occupiers got occupied golan heights as part of israel russia's foreign ministry says any change in its status would violate u.n. agreements iran and syria have also criticized donald trump's tweet saying it's time the u.s. recognized israel sovereignty over the golan heights which it captured from syria more than fifty years ago it's estimated twenty mile sharif one of islam's holiest sites might pompei a state department signaling what was to come by referring to israeli control of the golan heights rather than israeli occupation and more than half a century of u.s. policy reversed by one presidential tweet after fifty two years it is time for the united states to fully recognize israel's sovereignty over the golan heights says president trump which is of critical strategic and security importance to the state
7:51 pm
of israel and regional stability replete grateful for duty. unbelievable and unmatchable support for our security and our right to defend ourselves we will double our efforts to make sure that we protect all that this important over this important is raul what is important to america and indeed all that is important to the world some though see this as a dangerous u.s. move in a deeply sensitive region those from a former state department spokesman for probably who concludes he's not advancing the peace process he's killing it president trying statement about international war underpinned by a un charter which specifically states that in the territories forcibly occupied cannot be routinely admit. that as a principle argued by the us in the un with regard to the russian invasion of crimea the contradiction apparently ignored by president trump but welcome by the
7:52 pm
israeli prime minister who's standing has just received a major boost ahead of next month's elections in israel mike hanna just era or shinton. al-jazeera stephanie decker joins us now live from the occupied golan heights staff there's been plenty of international reaction to trump's comments. yes coming in fast and not unexpectedly because of course it is illegal under international law it is according to united nations resolution illegal israel's an exception of this part these really occupied golan heights part of sirius or is just behind us that's a u.n. base and off that is here to maintain the cease fire between syria and israel so just in the last hour or so we've had the european union coming out and saying that they do not recognize israeli sovereignty over this area you've had egypt coming out saying they consider this part as occupied syrian land you had germany coming
7:53 pm
out their spokesperson the government spokesperson saying rejecting any israeli sovereignty over this area iran has condemned it these d. turkish president. saying that this brings the region to the edge of a new crisis so what really was something that wasn't particularly talked about is now becoming a real international issue syria saying through a statement of its official news agency that it is going to use all means to take it back so i think it does give you an indication that internationally this is absolutely not being acceptable but it does play into the hands of one man and that is the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu ahead of those hotly contested elections here and staff netanyahu sounding rather pleased about all this what impact is this likely to have on the upcoming elections. well he's saying this is a major victory it is seen as a major victory for him he has been lobbying for this for years and i think the timing of this that there is no other way than seeing it as president donald trump
7:54 pm
giving netanyahu a real boost ahead of these elections some people will tell you that it's almost like the u.s. meddling in the israeli elections because this is how it is seen here you don't have three major victories for the israeli prime minister you have the fact that the americans moved the u.s. embassy to jerusalem you have the fact that the americans pulled out of the iran nuclear deal and now two weeks ahead of those elections you have the americans saying we are going to recognize this israeli occupied area of the golan heights as israeli and no longer syrian practically an annexation as we said earlier is not enter into nationally recognized by anyone so officially we're going to wait i think next week we understand there will be an official announcement from the american president when the israeli prime minister is in the united states addressing apac that's of course is the jewish lobby there recognizing this so it is hugely symbolically significant and i think also interesting we were going to have to wait and see what kind of international implications this is going to have on the ground al jazeera staff need to have there on the ground for us in the
7:55 pm
occupied golan heights thank you staff well al-jazeera step fastened has all the reaction from moscow. well russia was very quick to respond this morning immediately decided this is a direct violation of any un decisions and also it's bypassing the security council on this of course the contradiction with the occupation internationally scene of crimea is not being mentioned here this strong us reaction came from a federation council foreign commission member moros often said that this was clearly an act by a president from to split the arab world and russia would never accept. over the golan golan heights you have to know of course that russia has been very active military in syria for many years now and any loss by syria of the golan heights would in directly also be a loss for russia. people all over new zealand have mourned and prayed together on
7:56 pm
friday a nationwide memorial service was held where islamophobia was condemned and those taking part remembered the lives of those killed a week ago and attacks on two mosques andrew thomas reports they came in their thousands muslims and others to the park opposite the al-noor mosque a week ago a gunman killed fifty people here and at the nearby mosque in lynnwood neither linwood was ready to host friday prayers this week so a virtual mosque was created in the park instead for prayers and a sermon broadcast nationwide and attended by new zealand's prime minister. we leave the heart of the body south as the home already feels prime. you see him and mourns with you. we are one. at one thirty two exactly a week after the shooting began the park fell silent. for two minutes
7:57 pm
they stood. and then the prayers. they were followed by a servant. of al nor thanked the people of new zealand for their tears for their flowers and for their love and compassion too he thanked the prime minister for her response to the slaughter and then he can text allies to what happened here the attack he said did not come overnight you know where it was the result of anti islamic and anti muslim rhetoric used by some politicians some media agencies and others we call our governments around the wards including new zealand and the neighboring countries. to bring an end to hate speech and the politics of fear will his sane came from australia for the event last friday two of his relatives were killed for it touched by what would be
7:58 pm
a monastery and i think he was saying the right words. but not everyone in the park had a personal connection to a victim or even share their faith for many perhaps most of those who came here these will have been the first friday prayers they've ever attended but came not because they're muslim but to show solidarity with the victims of last friday's attacks and islamic community of new zealand more generally many muslim women wore a headscarf as an added mark of respect i just want to express myself at this terrible time just how terrible made clear by the mass burial held on friday funerals for twenty six people in a single afternoon after thomas al jazeera cross church. and turkey is hosting an emergency meeting of the organization of islamic cooperation in istanbul following the new zealand mosque attacks the turkish government called the meeting to address
7:59 pm
rising violence motivated by. its president says turkey will make the suspected last attack at a if new zealand doesn't reverse what happened in new zealand he new said tag that killed fifty of our brothers can never be regarded as an ordinary event it is caused by be deeply rooted hatred obsession and grudge whenever and wherever a terrorist strikes we know and you know the aim is to provoke fear and panic well in new zealand it has failed failed because al thoughts are not the terrorists thoughts. is extremist ways are not our way. and to be clear any. hatred speech is not tolerated well everything else may have changed in our country on the fifteenth of march few days ago. new zealand's
8:00 pm
essential character has not and will not well let's go live now to c.n.n. costello knew she is live for us in istanbul so i'm strong words from the one today but there's been a lot of controversy around his initial reaction to the terrible events in christchurch. world yes especially considering that turkey is having two minutes to put the election on march thirty first aired on statements from last week. was considered as offensive by the australians and by the new zealand's but of course foreign minister and deputy prime minister of new zealand he was here today and this was a very urgent meeting a very last call and he came from indonesia saw his presence at the meeting was meaningful so it was also a clue that this controversy was kind of sorted out and during our dance speech we didn't hear anything related to the same statements. offensive statements that
8:01 pm
mentions you know and zack's will be going back to their home in their coffins if they comment target muslims and turkey on the other hand.
