well actually what's happening today is not not so much a question of the people in the army so much as the army and the lad around the president himself and on. social media now a lot of people are talking about these accusations by the army chief of staff amid the guide sana and suggesting that it refers to a meeting in that i was. held between the president's brother is cited for defeat and the former head of the secret services general to speak as so this is actually more about the different elements within the regime itself within what it was known as look who are the power and which is a series of ones that held power collectively and that until now have worked side by side and which now seem to actually be coming apart and that's very interesting
6:01 am
you mention because influential brother saeed and i know that you've spoken about the government's attempts to split the opposition but it seems as though the regime is more likely to splinter from in their attempts to resolve this. yes well there's definitely the question of. also of the opposition from the streets and there was definitely a quite a bit of opposition from the street yesterday to article one no two with a lot of a lot of. batters and slogans and directly targeting both article one zero two and the wider regime and there were some slogans even at a at targets in guided sana but all of these different parts of the regime are seen as as being part of a larger corrupt system so the view from the protests is that they all have to go
6:02 am
where is yes at the same time you have the different elements within the regime are starting it seems to to actually fight between themselves and could those divisions from within the ruling establishment result in some sort of violence or are they likely to be able to contain it. well over just far what we've seen in terms of the sort of the the regime coming apart and. with the cheap this week already we've seen the chief of the. of the chief of give the largest business organization in the fall they shift on to please allie had resigned earlier this week and today there have been at me saying that the f.l.n. in the and they the two two governmental parties where it seems like the leadership
6:03 am
of those parties is now under attack as is the case that they had the largest trade union and all of these were the institutions were part of the pool and were part of this kind of governing alliance. but when it comes down to the final elements to those to those closest to the president and to though to that the leadership of the army it's much harder to see you know who is what what will actually happen next but it does seem like there is an escalation starting to happen yes thank you very much stephanie uncertainty there but shedding some light on it for us joining us there from l.j. as. the news hour live from london more still ahead for you on the program under via weapons that amounts from donald trump to kim jong un that might have led to the collapse of last month's annoy some it. was.

6:05 am
. now the government is desperately trying to save lives. we're trying to avoid an outbreak of cholera at the moment we're expecting this we're very prepared for the doctors in place so this is what we're doing at the moment many were trapped for more than a week with no access to clean water after cycling eat i hit the port city of bear . with tens of thousands of people displaced and living in temporary shelter a lack of sanitation has created the perfect conditions for cholera the vaccination is a very needed and it should start next wednesday next week the faster we go the most judges we have to go to transmission. of the of the coalition in the population then there is a big need for community engagement safe water distribution. for
6:06 am
fall in this population of bare obert also for the districts are running bear out where there is a i risk for cases there are so cholera is not new to mozambique the country has experienced regular outbreaks over the past five years but aid agencies now warn there is little time to prevent a major outbreak and more should be done to stem the spread of the disease. e.g. al jazeera earlier i spoke to rob holden his the world health organizations and agency response manager in mozambique i asked him about the scale of the outbreak. i think at the moment what we're seeing is an increase in the number of people present a result we call acute watery diarrhea and we know all the color is present on rick on trying to confirm cases that government this week to come from the chair was not what's important to set the stage is that there is this is
6:07 am
a color and demming region so the walls there have been previous caller breaks in this area so it wasn't surprising given the events and given the very difficult circumstances that people find themselves when they get that we're seeing the increase in acute watery diarrhea and we're seeing the emergence of cholera i think it'll be a little a few more days before we know the full extent of what we get the systems in place and also while we access some areas that have been inaccessible. we have seen the emergence of cholera you say huang's cholera starts to spread how difficult is it to control. all depends. on where it is. and what infrastructure required in place and what responses from is going to place you know what we're trying to do with the governments with the u.n. agencies when and deals with the local community to respond quickly we're trying to do is limit the spread of the disease by ensuring that we get fresh water in safe
6:08 am
water when we get public messaging out we get the community from border to get people living in much better conditions so we're trying to present prevent the disease from spreading by a whole range of measures and then we'll comportment those about to become on well . what we call the case money for. the treatment facilities to be able to respond quickly so that if somebody gets sick they get the treatment very quickly. so there is a whole there's a whole range of infrastructure response mechanisms sapan the systems that we're putting into place that will hopefully allow i was to quickly control the spread for the moment but more importantly that we reduce the number of people getting sick in the first place this is more just than just a call or response i think it's really important to emphasize that your listeners will find i guess cholera has dominated the headlines and we most moved quickly to
6:09 am
comment about you know you've seen the disaster i mean this is a huge a graphics area this twelve million people in the air in two million people need mind shaving the system trying not w. which old position with the government to mozambique our job is to help reestablish savings health services you know we don't do that alone we do it with the ministry of health we do it with all the government you know government departments and we do it with all the u.n. agencies in the community so it's all that by. being on the ground pushing to ensure that we get surveillance in place that is the things that we detect and we can respond to it quickly that we get clinics opened we get doctors back to where we get nurses back to where we get hospitals open and get the services running again for both the sick or those that were on medication before so it's about restarting the whole health care service is a monumental task in these conditions with two million people in need all
6:10 am
lifesaving assistance can you tell us about the logistical difficulties and challenges in in getting a supplies to those who are most in need of it there is a huge logistic alteration now in full swing but these aster all this scale it does take time to reach all locations and there are indeed at this stage even to close on from the event there are. only just getting. u.s. president donald trump is reported to have demanded north korea hand over its nuclear weapons at the hanoi summit last month secluding to a report from the voices news agency said to have presented conjunction with a document calling for the transfer of nuclear weapons and bomb fuel to the united states is the first time john would have explicitly defined what he meant by can a lunch between the two latest leaders was canceled the same day for the summit was cut short. as more from washington this letter is significant because of
6:11 am
what has happened in the past we know the national security advisor john bolton wants to pursue in north korea what he calls the libyan model that is where libya gave up its nuclear weapons or they believe they did give the nuclear weapons chemical biological weapons sent it to the united states in return for sanctions relief that is something that infuriated the north koreans they said that was a nonstarter and they were to cancel negotiations so president donald trump came out and said no we don't want the libyan model obviously north koreans are very aware of what eventually happened to moammar gadhafi the leader of libya who was killed by rebels and overthrown in his country so the letter basically spells out what the u.s. wants and that is sending all of the nuclear weapons and bomb fuel to the united states complete disarmament of the biological chemical weapons full inspections getting rid of all missile sites basically that is what the u.s. says is folded nuclearization that is
6:12 am
a nonstarter for kim jong un he has said that he wants to negotiate directly with the u.s. president donald trump who often talks about the letters that. he calls them love letters says they're in love this is clearly the president's staff trying to make sure he doesn't give too much away because of that what he calls it such a great relationship so they're laying out the terms that are obviously not favorable to him and could explain why the negotiations simply broke down. venezuelan security forces a fired tear gas to disperse demonstrators in the capital caracas they gathered to hear one guy does speak and to voice their anger over continuing energy blackouts in the country president nicolas maduro says the situation is the result of what he calls terrorist attacks on the hydroelectric dam but the opposition blames government mismanagement for it. as he sent us this update from neighboring colombia. opposition supporters are taken to the streets in the capital caracas in a number of cities across the finish but after another night of power outages

6:15 am
a migrant shelter on the us mexico border almost everyone here is from central america and they're seeking asylum in the united states. in the past migrants would be allowed to wait in the u.s. while their cases were considered but a change in policy by the trumpet ministration now requires them to be sent back to mexico until their case numbers are called yes back at the i arrived in tehran and applied for a number because they said that with the number everything would work out now i'm saying that's not the case in. most of the people at this shelter have been here for several months many of them tell us they don't feel safe. the americans asked me if i had somewhere to stay and. i said no we don't we don't have family here or anything they asked if it's dangerous for us in mexico and i said yes we run a risk there but they still send us back here i don't feel that's right. the city
6:16 am
of the one who has seen an increase in violent crime in recent months there have been almost five hundred people killed so far in two thousand and eighteen adding to the more than twenty five hundred homicides reported last year. for central american asylum seekers like nineteen year old idea of being stuck in mexico seems just as dangerous as returning to his home in honduras. here and here want to get kidnapped or something worse because of all the criminals as a migrant you get scared but no matter i suppose we have to stay here for some time . human rights advocate because of clarke says the change in policy by the u.s. is turning the mexico side of the border into a massive waiting room for asylum applicants look at it but what the united states is intending to do is dissuade migrants by making the asylum process in the united states more bureaucratic this year an estimated two hundred forty individuals have been sent back to the one under the trump administration's remain in mexico for. it
6:17 am
is the policy expands to more cities along the border that number is expected to rise significantly u.s. officials have defended the policy of returning central american asylum seekers to mexico calling it a vital response to a crisis at the southern border but human rights groups warn that the program could have the opposite effect and push more desperate migrants to cross over illegally mounted up. at the us mexico border. much more to tell you about on the program way going to be looking at the damage the bricks a crisis is inflicting on the u.k.'s reputation around the wilds also the community of women who are the hidden victims of almost half a century of conflict in the southern philippines and a big setting up on it stands between roger federer and a bull's eye. again
