australians facing the elections that could deliver the 6 prime minister and as many as. a step closer to replacing nuff to the u.s. removes terrorists on steel and alan minium imports from canada and mexico. the angry tale of oppression from brazil stealing the spotlight in cannes. but 1st the u.n. aid chief has warned their worst fears are being realized in northwestern syria where the government and its allies a fighting to retake the last rebel stronghold mark local says the offensive in italy province could result in the worst humanitarian tragedy of the 21st century diplomatic editor jane space reports. the russian ambassador vaseline
11:50 am
depends under pressure in the security council last year russia was one of 2 countries with turkey that guaranteed it as a safe now it stands accused of unleashing with its syrian allies a campaign of bombardment on the province since late april this escalation in violence has reportedly killed and injured over 100 civilians and further displaced 180000. the aerial bombardment is alarming including the use of barrel bombs in populated areas. with 18 medical facilities and 17 schools destroyed or damaged in just 3 weeks there were even more powerful words from the un's most senior humanitarian official when i briefed you here on 18 september i said a full scale military onslaught could result in the worst humanitarian tragedy of the 21st century. despite our warnings our west phase and now coming true mr
11:51 am
local revealed the un had shared the precise coordinates of humanitarian facilities with all warring parties so they wouldn't be hit but the u.k. ambassador then asked if they'd actually been deliberately targeted as a result mr president it would be absolutely grotesque if n.g.o.s and health workers providing coordinates to a mechanism they believe is there to assure their safety but finding themselves being the authors of their own destruction because if deliberate targeting by the regime when it was time for russian ambassador benazir to speak he accused the council of double standards ignoring civilian deaths during the us bombardment of the eyesores stronghold of russia but he denied his country's air force was currently targeting medical facilities for you but it's that we categorically reject accusations of by
11:52 am
a lady in international humanitarian law neither the syrian army nor the russian space and air force is conducting has delivered against civilians or civilian infrastructure or you bombing hospitals in the us or no outside the chamber but in his speech to the council the syrian ambassador bashar jaffrey said military operations were being carried out against what he said were terrorists they were he said operations that will continue it seems this meeting has failed to stop the devastating bombardment of it lebron james pays out his era at the united nations believe him all that security council meeting is taking place in new york an airstrike in their lives killed several more civilians including a father and his baby daughter many more people were injured and explosions have been heard in the capital damascus state media reporting what it described as lou.
11:53 am
mina's objects coming from the direction of israel and that they have been shot down israel hasn't commented about in the past its forces have attacked sites in syria that it says connected to iran and to the lebanese group hezbollah. and to iran itself now where a senior politician has suggested talks be held between his country in the us after weeks of escalating tensions. species chairman of the reigning parliament's national security and foreign policy commission and he tweeted the highest iranian and american officials have rejected the war option but there are 3rd parties who are rushing to destroy a large part of the world there must be a table in iraq or in qatar where the 2 sides can meet in order to end this tension but this m.p. doesn't really have major influence on iran's foreign policy as a neighbor's ravi explains from the iranian capital. mr fuller is
11:54 am
a senior m.p. he's an elected member of iran's parliament there is power is distributed between the parliament the presidency in the judiciary with the supreme leader of course sitting on top of all of these institutions and at the end of the day what the supreme leader says that is what is actually actionable so mr followed as a senior and p. and the chairman of the iranian parliamentary commission on foreign policy and national security does hold a great deal of sway in this body is has the capacity to call on the foreign ministry to call on the presidency to question senior leaders but in terms of actual state policy it doesn't necessarily have the authority to influence the making of those decisions of foreign policy of diplomacy of military strategy and in response to this tweet the supreme national security council actually issued
11:55 am
a statement saying as much saying that the personal opinions of individuals aren't shouldn't be taken as is the policy of the state and so there seems to be some disagreement between him as a member of parliament no doubt a senior member of parliament and the government the supreme national security council whose chairman is president hassan rouhani and self. voting is underway in australia for elections that could deliver a 6 prime minister in as many is the opinion polls are suggesting the conservative governing coalition could lose to the center left labor party the opposition leader bill shorten has committed to more ambitious environmental targets is also a promise to bring stability after a year is that they're seeing both sides of politics switching prime min this is impact crew. we'll be ready to hit the ground from tomorrow we'll be ready to start straightaway and we'll start straight away my 1st cabinet meeting.
11:56 am
the 1st order of business. submission to the independent umpire to get the why age is moving again for millions of our fellow australians my 1st legislation will reverse the cuts to penalty rates we will convene the parliament as soon as possible to start action on climate change the rest of the world's fighting climate change a strain has been missing this is not the aussie way to go missing in the big fights the world will know that if labor gets elected astray is back in the fight against climate change well our correspondent andrew tell us his embattled that's in the state of victoria and it's one of the swing see that could decide this election let's go live to andrew andrew we've just heard bill shorten the leader of the labor party talking about his commitment to environmental issues how far does that resonate with the people of ban it. well here it's one of
11:57 am
these marginal constituencies that really could go either way at the moment the m.p. here is part of the governing party the right of center liberal party but she sitting on an incredibly tight margin and it's fairly likely that with any kind of swing it so will any kind of it's a weird sight this ain't into the labor column there aren't that many states around the country like this one there's 2 parts 3 in the state of victoria 3 or 4 up in queensland to the north of here the 3 in new south wales possibly full 2 of those in sydney another 2 just north of sydney there's a couple in western australia about a 4 hour flight from here and there are 2 more in the island state of tasmania just off the southern coast of australia those hunt full of states really will decide this election and it's going to be very bright spot the opinion polls suggest that labor has had a consistently for months but it's an elite that has been narrowing so i don't expect any landslide in this election as you say bill shorten there putting the environment front and center he's also put the state of work his way just right and
11:58 am
center you heard him talking there about penalty rights these are the extra amounts that workers get paid for working on weekends or public holidays they've been largely scratched by the government party wants to bring them back in he's been boosted in the last 24 hours plus the right price used by the death of a very popular former prime minister bob hawke he was prime minister in the eighty's into the ninety's he was a labor prime minister so he was a great reforming leader only issues like workers' rights but also on the environment his death was really reminded australians of what a great prime minister in many people's eyes can be and probably has given a slight boost to his party the labor party and bill shorten so that's the lay of the land as it stands saturday lunchtime here in australia we should have results about 4 or 5 hours of the polls closed because of time differences in this country that means probably in about 10 hours 1112 hours from now and we're making quite an issue with the of the rather we calling it a revolving door of the australian leadership it is something the both of us say is
11:59 am
the fact that they've had so many prime minister is in safe he is. so usually it's a huge day it's the one thing that is consistently talked about behind me is people walk into the election because they are absolutely fed up with this revolving doors of prime ministers it wasn't just a governing liberal party although they are on their 3rd prime minister in what 4 years it was the previous labor government as well that kept changing leader was trained kevin rudd and julia gillard by chinese leaders twice the current government is also change they just twice when the electorate had no say and if bill shorten becomes prime minister as a result of this election will be australia's 6th prime minister in 6 years and let me be the 2nd time and possibly the 3rd one i'm getting confused now that the prime minister has changed as a result of an election of the internal party to say really really annoying people in australia they want to name so that they want whatever party frankly will give them stability at the moment most people if you believe the opinion polls think
12:00 pm
that will be the lighter side all right thank you for now andrew next time we speak i expect you to explain the democracy sausage to us thank you very much. for low wages in sydney have been speaking and they've expressed hopes that this election will give australia as angie was saying at different leadership. i'm praying for a change of government i'm crossing my fingers for change and. i think gore and i do expect this but i think the general mood is pretty similar i don't really. you know i'm just hoping that we can have a salute have somebody come with a whole. government that is not going to be. displayed. shouldn't be looked down. on the us has reached a deal with canada and mexico to remove its terrorists from steel.
