3:05 am
a specific time when this might happen we don't know in what form or fashion that this summary will be delivered but this is now what multiple news sources here in the united states are reporting we also don't know really just how long this report is what material what evidence is included in this document and we don't know whether there is a rationale being provided by robert mueller for why he is not indicting any other persons thirty four people and three organizations have been convicted as part of his nearly two year long investigation but certainly once this summary is handed over to congress then the real discussion here in washington and indeed across the united states will get under way what has been the official reaction from washington. well from the white house's perspective
3:06 am
late on sunday morning they say that they had not received any guidance or any briefings from the attorney general of about robert mueller so report meantime on the sunday public affairs shows democrats and republicans basically took the positions that you would expect them to take democrats say that they want the report as well as the evidence supporting that report to be made public to not just members of congress but to the general public in the interest of transparency they also argue that if there is a case to be made for impeachment they can't do it as members of congress without all of that information republicans for their part are saying that this is nothing more than a witch hunt using the president's phrase as you pointed out they say that the fact that this investigation is ending without any further indictments means that there is no evidence of collusion between donald trump's presidential campaign in two
3:07 am
thousand and sixteen and russia and so the general public and congress should let the matter go what happens once this summary comes out well you can expect that the rhetoric is simply going to ramp up thank you for that loss in jordan i for a say in washington d.c. . time now for a look at the stories making headlines in europe here is an island a new center. folly thank you a cruise ship that ran into trouble in extremely rough seas off the coast of norway on saturday has finally reached fort half of the passengers on board the viking sky had to be airlifted to safety after the luxury liner had engine problems more than twenty people are being treated in hospital so again a girl has a story. the remaining passengers aboard the viking sky came off the ship in the port of boulder only
3:08 am
a day earlier they narrowly escaped disaster. this was the view from inside the cruise ship. before the alarm went off the mayday call was put out on saturday as the vessel drifted in the norwegian see more than thirteen hundred passengers and crew were aboard the luxury cruise liner when its engines failed during stormy weather and was battered by eight metre waves just off the coast of norway here the weather is known to be fierce and the shallow waters are renowned for their reefs. throughout the night rescue services managed four hundred seventy nine people most of those on board were elderly tourists mainly from the united states and the u.k. a few escaped of light injuries many were left traumatised by the experience.
3:09 am
or. or is that a boat load of. sin or you know. we were thrown tugboats one in front and the other behind towed the ship towards the port city of boulder the passengers and crew may have had a lucky escape but it brought what was supposed to be a twelve day cruise along norway's coast to an abrupt and terrifying end sort of a ever al-jazeera. with media reports of an internal crew to oust her u.k. prime minister to resign may summon the leading bricks of supporters in a ruling party to our country residence for crisis talks may is coming under increased pressure to resign ahead of a final attempt to get her brakes a deal through parliament m.p.'s are expected to vote on the withdrawal agreement
3:10 am
for the third time next week some have suggested they would only support the bill if may agreed to resign well it's been one of the reason is most bruising week says britain's prime minister it began with talk of a third vote in parliament on her brakes at the zero but it quickly became clear that she still lacked enough support from m.p.'s to get it passed frustrated made a televised address to the nation on wednesday in which she blamed m.p.'s that for a delay to bracks it it is high time we made a decision so far parliament has done everything possible to avoid making a choice motion after motion and amendment after amendment has been tabled without parliament ever deciding what it wants all m.p.'s have been willing to say is what they do not want. well that speech backfired alienating m.p.'s even further in need of more time to pass for a deal may went to an e.u.
3:11 am
summit in brussels on thursday where leaders gave for a two week extension to the fast approaching breaks a deadline britain could still crash out there without a deal if there is no agreement by april twelfth and the week ended with an estimated one million people marching through london calling for a second referendum and britain's leading political journalists reporting a plot by members of kerry's amaze cabinet to remove her altogether one minister is reported to have said the end is nigh when media reports suggest a coup might see may's deputy david leading turn replacer as caretaker leader but he denied wanting to take over when asked about it earlier ok a. lot of far fetched speculation around the smaller from for my political debate clear is that. one hundred percent behind the prime minister i'm working flat out as always have been to try to get support for her deal i don't think that i've any wish to take it from
3:12 am
the pm i think it's doing a fantastic job i tell you one thing that the working close of the prime minister does it cure you completely of any lingering shred of ambition to want to do that that task i have absolute admiration for the way she's going about it but we're joined in the studio by john johnston who works for politics home of musical news website here in the u.k. thank you for joining us david linton obviously they are not sounding like you particularly wants the job it's a bit of a poisoned chalice now but really do you think that if she was replaced that it would actually make any difference the backstop is that there is an issue the e.u.'s said it won't negotiate further what difference for a new leader make whether certainly concerns about terrorism a leading the party into the next set of negotiations so there has been suggestions that the brakes tears would be happier if she was to set out. out her resignation timetable as part of the next set and therefore if she was to leave some of
3:13 am
them may decide to back her deal with the idea that a new prime minister would lead us through the next set of negotiations the problem is that at the moment we've had steve it lead into him being touted mr linton was david cameron's former minister for europe he was the prominent remainer so for many people that wouldn't really solve the problem of having him or bracks it minded prime minister leading us to the next stage of bracks ok so i mean bizarrely her resigning may increase the chances of her own deal being passed is that right yes absolutely ok well i mean you know she's been a bit of a punching bag in the past the past few years really certainly the past few months rightly or wrongly people have their own ideas on this but do you think she has mishandled negotiations or she just put in a situation whereby the e.u. was just not going to budge and soon the shoes i think the red lines were possibly not realistic and that they didn't they this is out of the single market. the
3:14 am
customs union taking back control of the borders and in the jurisdiction of the european court those things didn't really line up with the makeup of parliament the general election that she called the snap election in two thousand and seventeen which cut down her majority forced her to go into this pact with the northern ireland are to the that has made the entire process infinitely difficult for her because it's meant that wherever she put forward the parliamentary reform it it was always going to be incredibly hard for her to mention her redlines then specifically her fall but surely there are linked to freedom of movement which surely most people who voted breaks it if they didn't understand anything else they understood that that they wanted to end freedom of movement so whether really her read the red lines that was that not really the mandate of people who voted for x. they were certainly guided by what do you believe campaign. had said during the referendum the worry now for break steers is that tourism is deal doesn't fully deliver on those promises it leaves us tied in many ways to the e.u.
3:15 am
specifically to do with us withdrawal agreements and the concern that should we not be able to negotiate a deal with the e.u. that we would be trapped any form of customs union or over the northern ireland border. obviously a lot of options are now becoming ever more real we saw a million people on the streets of london on saturday wanting a second referendum probably not going to happen but certainly a lot of people very vociferous about that no deal is becoming a potential reality how is the british government trying to get ready for it well what they're talking about doing is possibly having a set of for the clint decorative votes this week in parliament these are non-binding votes where m.p.'s could set out things that they wanted to happen so far along with the criticism of m.p.'s and from the prime minister she made the speech last week not a good idea but she blamed m.p.'s for it but her point was that a lot of people believe m.p.'s have constantly been saying what they don't want to
3:16 am
happen in parliament but not really saying what they do want to happen but if there isn't a deal apparently there's a bunker and under the ministry of defense for they're all trying to get ready little bit about this is part of the government's wider new deal contingency planning the energy have given three and a half thousand troops in order to be ready for a new deal scenario and yes this week we've heard it confirmed by the minister of defense they have an operation running in a bunker underneath whitehall or smiling about it now we may not be smiling about it in a few weeks for the moment john johnston from politics home thank you thank you. now hundreds of french algerians have been staging a rally in paris calling for political change in their ancestral home they're calling on of jarius eighty two year old leader a president have been as he's put a figure to step down the peaceful demonstrations and now spread to other major cities and friends they've been chained to has more from paris. beginning to dare call it the algerian spring here in paris the hope is going to the country that

3:18 am
daal jiri as a whole and to say we are fed up we'll head out put this abuse of power algeria gained its independence from france dumped a bit to colonial war in one thousand nine hundred eighty two but the links between the two countries but culturally and economically remain strong the french government say they will not interfere in the sovereign affairs of another country the behind their scenes that diplomats will be trying hard to be the midwives of change and that is it from europe now let's go by. the falling into barbara thank you very much for that still ahead on this al-jazeera news hour this his meeting of the powerful program lobby gets under way with some leading democrats out of the picture plus how a government initiative in mexico could affect thousands of people reliant on social programs and we'll tell you about a gymnast who's going viral with her six a perfect ten and her choice of music you don't have the details in sports just a. hello

3:20 am
that some of us are going to be see winds are going to be a problem as well that means low visibilities in some areas for here in doha passing showers maybe a thunderstorm or two clouds across the area but the temperatures twenty nine degrees here on monday thirty degrees as we go towards tuesday abu dhabi we expect to see about thirty degrees for you there and then across mozambique a lot of the area of rain is making its way up here towards the north we do expect to see temperatures for harare about thirty degrees or johannesburg a partly cloudy day for you with a temperature of twenty eight degrees. this powerful social network is sculpting a global cyber society and regulation is playing catch up but as scandals begin to unfold they will witness is that we should not be in this position. they want as much extreme content as they can get on the cover to gauge how ethics weigh against

watching the news hour on al-jazeera with me fully back to bore a reminder of our top stories thailand's pro-military party has taken a narrow lead in the country's first general election since a military coup five years ago with more than ninety percent of votes counted it's still short of an outright majority in parliament that could mean weeks of haggling before a coalition government is formed. kenya's government has warned that more than a million people i risk of starvation as parts of the country endure a severe drought conditions in thirteen counties are continuing to worsen with widespread vegetation loss and no a copy of this and a miley's armed forces chief and several top commanders have been sacked after more than one hundred thirty four people women and children among them were killed in an attack on every image. in the united states politicians and power brokers a meeting in washington for the annual gathering of america's influential pro israel lobby israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu will deliver the keynote
3:23 am
speech at the apac conference later this week this year several democratic presidential candidates us not being the event reflecting a growing us political divide over israel mike hanna has our report from washington . it's a close relationship like none before president trump has repeatedly made clear his support of israel reversing decades of u.s. policy by moving the u.s. embassy to jerusalem and most recently recognizing israeli sovereignty over the golan heights his decision to unilaterally tear up the nuclear deal with iran another move that the like to do is really prime minister benjamin netanyahu who sometimes was a loss for words in proclaiming his gratitude the president. has just made history. i called him. i thanked him on behalf of the people of israel
3:24 am
he did it again congress too has played its role in recent days a bipartisan bill introduced in the house denouncing efforts to boycott israel as incompatible with a two state solution despite this there are clear signs of a potential split among democrats with regard to israel new representative omar controversially implied that israel was buying supporting congress a claim she subsequently withdrew but not before an intense debate among members of the democratic party caucus the first palestinian american representative in congress rushy that adding her voice in cautioning against unconditional support for israel. these new positions in the party gaining some traction a number of democratic presidential contenders have announced they will not attend the conference. senior democratic party leaders like house speaker nancy pelosi and senate minority leader chuck schumer will take part in the conference. at issue the
3:25 am
votes of jewish americans in twenty twenty in the last election donald trump drew just over twenty percent of the jewish vote as opposed to the nearly eighty percent cast for hillary clinton. a statistic president trump is clearly intent on reversing to the extent of labeling democrats anti semitic the democrats are very much proving to be anti israel there's no question about that and it's a disgrace i don't know what's happened to them but they are totally hentai israel frankly i think they're entitled to a common set may resonate in israel with president trump support his bolstering the prime minister's chances in next month's election but it will be a concern for an organization with a slogan connected for good one that traditionally has been staunchly bipartisan in politics both home and abroad my kind of his era washington.
