big shopping centers a performing arts complex i left the place you might see behind me they've also managed to block a number of roads in a standoff that's been going on since about 6 am this morning the current situation there is massive traffic congestion you heard matthew children who's the chief secretary of the government he stated that he wants the access to these public roads resumed this traffic congestion on my right side which is all the harbor front is a big fire phase that keep the city going but we'll see what happens next do you think the government's likely to heed the protests or gore heads with the bill and vote through next week. well i have said that that will forge ahead with this bill they have no plans to withdraw yes the the build a reading has been suspended today but they've said that they will push ahead and go ahead with this the rating at some stage it doesn't look like will happen today simply because these roads are blocked a number of politicians have been able to gain access a certain road access into the legislative council building they've said they want
60 hours between now and the vote to have said initially the vote would be next thursday who knows if that's going to be delayed because of today's suspension but at the moment we have a city the central part of hong kong at a standstill and look it's reminiscent of the days that we saw in 24 tane for the occupy hong kong pro-democracy protests where this part of the city came to a standstill for about 2 and a half months ok you say record joining us live from hong kong thank you. well let's run through how things work in hong kong legally and politically since its hand over from british rule to china back in 1907 officially it's a semi autonomy us region and it's led by a chief executive who functions like a prime minister but is chosen by a 1200 member committee made up of mainly probe aging politicians and business leaders well china has described it as one country 2 systems hong kong has its own executive legislative and independent judicial powers under what's called the basic
law but communist party leaders in beijing have the power to interpret any calls their own way or china correspondent asian brain tells us know how leaders in beijing are reacting to the latest developments. well not surprisingly the dramatic pictures coming out of hong kong are not being shown on the mainland no images have appeared on state t.v. or indeed in any of china's state controlled media outlets pictures of also being blocked online indeed any references to the protests in hong kong are also not appearing on social media and i think that blackout is going to remain in force for as long as these protests continue china's leaders don't want to see protesters on the streets of a chinese city particularly when it's a chinese city where there were protests just 4 years ago when of course the occupy movement took over the center of hong kong a protest that lasted for several months so china's leaders continue to insist that
they support the embattled hong kong chief executive kerry lam they want this proposed extradition law to happen because of course china has extradition arrangements with more than 30 other countries and it doesn't see why hong kong should be any different but on choose day china did suffer a setback because a court in new zealand ruled against extraditing a man back to china where he's wanted for questioning over the murder of a woman in shanghai but lawyers here in china we've been speaking to say there are adequate safeguards in china's legal system and that hong kong and the people opposed to this new extradition law really have nothing to worry about the the the line the narrative coming from china is that there is nothing sensitive in this extradition law that china wants passed what is a problem is that perhaps it just simply hasn't been explained well enough. now

bombardment has pushed hundreds of thousands of people to leave their homes from the northern parts of the southern part of it let we know that there is more than 300000 people who were displaced and those who are lucky enough to reach the holding camps and that have sought refuge there. there continues to be dozens and dozens of people who are able to take that area. the u.s. is imposing sanctions on one of syria's most prominent business men some air force is accused of profiting from the war by building luxury properties on land stolen from syrians who fled the u.s. treasury department's has blacklisted properties of photos and his a man holding company including the 4 seasons hotel that has stayed open during syria's long running civil war as you go ahead and tell us more now from washington . u.s. president donald trump hasn't been focused very much on syria so the sanctions
announcement it was a bit surprising but the treasury department's come out and said 16 people and cities with a relationship with assad in syria are going to be sanctioned what this means is that americans are generally prohibited from doing business with them and if they have any assets in the united states those can be frozen this is a fairly big company in the middle east so what treasury says they're doing in one aspect is taking the property of syrians who fled the war syrians who are still there and converting that property into luxury buildings so there's been sanction for that and this is a company that has a broad reach as i mentioned they're involved in sugar refinery trading and grain they do a lot of transportation in the middle east so this could have a big impact if this company has a connection to american businesses it is the trump administration's i need a message that they are going to try and target those closest to bashar al assad.
