a spotlight on its own conduct in myanmar and in sport the tour de france champion suffers a setback ahead of the big race be to have the details coming out. to . the race to become britain's next prime minister has been whittled down to 5 people here's felicity barr with more from my european you sent to felicity. yes the u.k.'s ruling conservative party has just held another round of votes to pick their next leader who will then of course replace to resume a as prime minister and these are the 5 who are still battling it out the front running pro bracks m.p. boris johnson has surged ahead yet again winning 126 votes foreign secretary jeremy hunt is next with 46 environment secretary michael gove has 41 votes international development secretary voiced year it has $37.00 and the home secretary such
9:14 pm
a java just scraping through with the bare minimum of $33.00 votes with me now is out of sarah's need parker to look at this in a little bit more detail so boris johnson as expected still the front runner but it's going to be very interesting to see how he performs in his 1st televised debate later so it's seemingly no stopping boris johnson he has increased his lead he's now 80 votes ahead of the person that came 2nd jeremy hunt the foreign secretary but one weathers questions really now whether this whole thing this whole process should continue but of course there are procedures there are protocols to follow as well and as you said this all important t.v. debate is coming up those in charge of boys johnson's public appearances to be making sure that he hasn't put a foot wrong or tall so far one can assume that he's been closely briefed on how to prepare for the assault exactly what to say but of course anything goes we know
9:15 pm
that these debates do well for some they impact negatively on others boris johnson though really has to prove that he will continue to be the man capable of being the prime minister going forward but we know he's by gaffes before will he make them again and it's going to be interesting to see him up against this man not many people outside of britain even in britain really know who he is but he's emotionally as the sort of somewhat surprise contender why he's been described as a rising star from the start regarded as something of a political outsider but is now. done incredibly well advancing ahead of such a job he had a very well known popular figure home secretary of course he's done particularly well probably for 2 reasons firstly his presence on social media has absolutely been outstanding he's been all over twitter even inviting members of the public to come and debate him in parks here in london for instance also secondly in the 1st t.v. debates he did very well in communicating his ideas he set himself up as something of a political moderate compared to the others he's the only one that isn't advocating
9:16 pm
a hard breck's it on october 31st saying that it would be a fairytale to imagine that the u.k. is ready for that any time soon and i think it's plain talking has done him very well indeed the question now as the suggested though is whether boris johnson can do as well and keep rory stewart at bay can be interesting on how you can be monitoring that debate thank you. now 15 years after the last flight of the concorde there are plans to build new supersonic passenger jets and with advanced technology engineers say they could be cheaper and cleaner that's how to reports from the paris at shea. blake szell is preparing to bring back supersonic flight to the aviation world at the paris air show his company launched a project for a plane that could fly twice the speed of sound 50 years after concorde was designed with wind tunnels flight rules and drafting paper we now have carbon fiber
9:17 pm
composite vacherot and amex and new engines that allow supersonic flight to be accessible to tens of millions of people and a way that's economically and environmentally sustainable the companies raised more than $100000000.00 to build a $55.00 c. to plane that aide says would be affordable and produce ciro carbon emissions they hope to have a prototype flying by 2020 it's not the only supersonic aircraft project a number of u.s. startups airlines and even nasa are in the race but commercial aviation has been hit before it's been more than 15 years since the british french concorde stopped flying it was a feat of engineering it could only fly over the sea it supersonic speeds though because of the very noisy sonic boom and despite his popularity it never broke even financially challenges all the computer world has changed his concorde. environment restrictions noice thing around airports have
9:18 pm
a much stricter so how does that fit in on the other hand compensate structures materials see if the modeling engine technology they've all improved. it could be interesting to see how it turns out if supersonic travel becomes a reality again the 7 and a half hour flight between paris new york would be hard and a new generation of people could experience travelling through the sky at breathtaking speed it's all just 0 paris and that's it for me on the team in london let's go back to doha and to fully felicity thank you very much russia's foreign ministry has warned the us against deploying more troops to the middle east conning them or provide. if washington is planning to send iran a 1000 additional troops to the region amid rising tension with iran hours before making that announcement the pentagon released pictures that it says show elite iranian troops removing an unexploded mine from one of the 2 oil tankers hits by

explosions last week and a televised speech iran's president hassan rouhani insisted his country had nothing to do with what happened to the tank as and he accused the us of trying to stir up conflict. american efforts in the region to cut our relations with the world and isolate iran have all been unsuccessful if certain companies in some countries don't want to cooperate with us because of us pressure we condemn america for this we don't want war with any nation those facing us are a group of politicians with a little experience u.s. secretary of state michael says washington has continued to have dialogue with tehran despite the growing tensions between the 2 countries we have been engaged in many messages even this this moment right here communicating to iran that we are there to deter aggression present trump does not want war and we will continue to communicate that message while doing the things that are necessary to protect american interests in the region. and the u.s.

9:25 pm
around as we head through the next couple of days so a temperature of 45 i think for wednesday maybe not quite as hot for thursday but still a hot blustery day for the south a bit more cloud and certainly a lot more humidity will be around the coast of oman so muscat probably no high then around to $3435.00 degrees further towards the south of this and also a great deal of wet weather across the southern parts of africa at the moment we are seeing the winds gradually push a few areas of cloud on shore around the coast of mozambique and they could just give us one or 2 showers we could also see one or 2 around the coast of madagascar as well but away from there so actually fine and dry a good deal of cloud is likely over the southern parts there as we head through wednesday. freezing winds and rugged terrain and the time seemed impossible. but for afghan traders who braved the will concur into all that it's no choice. combating the

immigration policies he is considering voting for trump but he'll need to do more to support those suffering in venezuela more from their adoring. when truck visits orlando on tuesday to officially kick off his campaign it's voters like d.s. hill need to convince trump's record over the past 2 years will be front and center i will build a great great wall trump's biggest $26.00 promise to build a wall along the southern border to stop illegal immigration has proven to be a challenge he was unable to secure funding from congress so he declared an emergency to start construction that's being challenged in the courts a recurring theme throughout his 1st 2 and a half years as his opposition uses legal means to oppose some of his biggest policies those challenges included his travel ban on people from 5 muslim majority countries and although it faced widespread opposition initially trump managed to
9:30 pm
successfully implement it it also helps that he appointed 2 justices to the country's highest court as a candidate trump promised voters america 1st policies he made good on that pledge and angered u.s. allies and now saying he would withdraw the united states from the paris climate accord and pull out of the 2015 agreement to limit iran's nuclear program still the u.s. economy remains steady even as trump has picked fights with china mexico and europe accusing them of unfair trading practices expect to boast about a strong u.s. economy and historically low unemployment even among voters of color despite persistent criticism trauma's policies hurt minority voters. we know that florida is a state that's becoming increasingly brown and i think that's a that's a state where he's going to have to address that issue another problem for donald
9:31 pm
trump trying to convince voters to look past at least 15 investigations in 3 states looking into trump's business charity and campaign and even with the muller report behind him democrats in congress are still investigating generating problematic headlines for a president trying to win reelection can really help get al jazeera orlando and president trump has announced that he will not nominate acting defense secretary patrick shanahan to hold the position in a permanent capacity shanahan became acting defense secretary when his boss james mattis resigned at the end of 2018 is your placement is army secretary mark spit that speech was in jordan in washington d.c. for a strong saying it was china who withdrew his nomination do we know why. well it's because of incidents of domestic violence in his family in the last decade this is information that was not made available to the senate armed services
9:32 pm
committee when it was considering shanahan for his previous job that of a deputy defense secretary and certainly the message was sent from congress that because this had not come up there were going to be difficult questions about whether shanahan could continue to lead the pentagon at a time when the agency itself when the military itself is dealing with endemic issues involving domestic violence sexual assault sexual harassment and rape this is also a situation where the incidents in question went back to 292010 but they were quite violent and it's not even clear whether the president himself donald trump was aware of these incidents in these cases it is alleged in one that shanahan might have been a perpetrator but in the more serious case it involved his now ex-wife and one of his sons who was charged with beating her with a baseball bat the u.s.
9:33 pm
military ross has operated without a defense secretary since december shanahan was in an acting capacity of course is that likely to change anytime soon who's still in the running for the job. well that's a very good question because donald trump had suggested that he was going to send nomination papers for patrick shanahan to the senate for confirmation as the next defense secretary we have heard now from officials on capitol hill who are saying that while they welcome michael espy as the acting defense secretary they want the president to send over a permanent nominee as quickly as possible so that the pentagon has a leader who is acting not just temporarily but actually has all of the full authority is that come with holding that cabinet position this also comes at a time when there is very real concern about the ongoing tensions between the
9:34 pm
united states and iran and there are those both republican and democratic who are questioning whether the trumpet ministration is perhaps navigating a difficult course in part because patrick shanahan did not have a permanent seat at the table and if the u.s. were to be contemplating perhaps some sort of military action against iran should it be doing so while it still does not have permanent people in charge at the pentagon so it's not clear who's going to get the permanent nod there's not been any suggestion at least in the last hour that michael us b. would be getting that nomination but certainly there is already a call from the members of the u.s. congress from the president to send over a permanent name so that person can go through the confirmation process as quickly as possible thank you very much ross was in jordan by force in washington d.c. at present has promised to begin removing millions of undocumented immigrants who ended the u.s.
9:35 pm
illegally the announcement was time to coincide with the launch of his re-election campaign later this tuesday critics say the deportations are not new and what effects those already facing removal want a 1000000 people have been issued final deportation orders by federal charges remain in the u.s. hard in vice president for programs and policy at refugees international he says the immigration department does not have the capacity to remove such a large number of people. given the number of people who have received these orders it's can be quite complicated to execute and be to even look at the possibility that you're going to do so in a way that's going to be humane many of these people are probably have children who are born in the united states some who may be you know citizens and the people you're talking about something back would disrupt social fabric would render families apart in general the policy would be very very difficult and inhumane to implement and there's very little to suggest that the flows from central america or
9:36 pm
elsewhere in latin america or any way being deterred by these types of policies or the announcement of these types of policies people who are fleeing violence in central america are fleeing you know gang violence there so they're freaking there's a feeling general based violence they really they're in such circumstances where they're willing to undertake an incredibly arduous and dangerous journey up through mexico into the united states often forcing them into the hands of small groups and such and so the idea that simply u.s. policy on deportations is going to somehow stem those flows there's very little evidence to suggest that that's going to have that kind of impact now on border crossings between venezuela and colombia have reopened it came as a relief for venezuelans desperate to cross over and get food medicine and other things they can't find that help but as alison that i'm here to report an increase in police numbers means that journey now carries even greater risks for those
9:37 pm
without the right papers. colombian police on the move since business will announce the reopening of illegal crossings in the border city of hundreds of policemen have been tasked with cracking down on venezuelans using illegal paths to enter into full on. officers dismantled dozens of improvised bridges over the river dividing the 2 countries when our in the form field here you can see what's left of the makeshift could also. get the built. thousands use these paths during the 4 months in which venezuela shut the border off and having to pay a fee to criminal gangs to cross. will be good for the military if he's had so far turned a blind eye on documented business where lands but not anymore these men were caught in the country without proper documents and will be the poor to. me that i did not i came here hoping to be able to work and seen money back to venezuela things
9:38 pm
a very difficult back home i have 3 kids and my wife to take care of everything security has been under legal bridges as well in response the venezuelan government announced it will also start to require migration cards for colombians travelling to venezuela. but vanish when migration of very few here and there is one believe every church telling us off camera that it just fell flat from the necessary issue of the car just not working yet and the new requirements have been put. to good has become a lifeline for up to 40000 venezuelans who cross in search of affordable basic food items and medicine on a daily basis at least 4000000 have left been this way left for good in recent years i for the moment the crossings remain open just to pedestrians trailers that the venezuelan government laid across the bridge just to block them remain in place creating long queues but it's an improvement. to give us whatever support i had to
9:39 pm
cross on the path many times and it was very dangerous very scary now with the bridge open even with the container still in place i created a bottleneck but despite it all things are much better a small consolation for the 10s of thousands then we need. this border to remain open to survive as the crisis in the country sees no end in sight alison and. victor. hong kong's leader carrier has offered what she calls her most sincere apology for the way an extradition bail has been handled she's under increasing pressure from protesters a war going eyes large demonstrations demanding her resignation rob mcbride reports from hong kong. with anger still festering in spite of a statement apologizing for handling of this controversy hong kong's leader kerry tried saying sorry in person i personally have to show that much of the responsibility this has led to controversies this pillows and societies in

9:41 pm
a 2nd reading debate but what caroline is offering still falls short of a complete withdrawal of this bill that it seems could be too much of a loss of face for her by association for beijing but that's exactly what her opponents are still demanding an alliance of pro-democracy and student groups are promising to continue their campaign of opposition carry lamb is actually presenting to the rest of the word that ministration it's going to be a lame duck and ministration because she would have a very hot line governing of hong kong from now on after last sunday's unprecedented march by an estimated 2000000 people opposition groups do not want to lose the momentum but possibly using the expanded ranks of activists in more targeted acts of civil disobedience where more people show that determination i
