4:02 pm
citizens and 3 born in america. we ran on a mandate to advocate for and to represent those ignored left out and left behind our squad is big our squad includes any person committed to building a more equitable and just world and that is the work that we want to get back to and given the size of the squad in this great nation we cannot we will not be silenced this country was founded on the radical idea that we are created equal and endowed by our creator with in inalienable rights and yes we have a long way before we fully live up to those values it is for this reason precisely that we have to take action when
4:03 pm
a president is openly violating the oath he took to the constitution of the united states and the core values we aspire to as marsa luther king said all we say to america is be true to what you say on paper but dog's wrong is not letting go he's calling on the for when to apologize to america for he describes as the foul language they have used and the terrible things they have said our white house correspondent kimberly how could has more these are people that in my opinion hate our country despite widespread outrage and accusations of xenophobia u.s. president donald trump on monday escalated his twitter tirade against 4 democratic congresswoman from diverse backgrounds arguing they should return to where they came from if you're not happy here then you can leave so far as i'm concerned if
4:04 pm
you hate our country. if you're not happy here you could leave trump's comments follow a series of tweets sent over 2 days attacking democratic party representatives alexandria cast your cortez of new york and omar of minnesota where she did to leave of michigan at a on a press lee of massachusetts of the group only omar is foreign born but all are u.s. citizens democratic house speaker nancy pelosi announced a resolution condemning trump's tweets as the congresswoman fired back this is simply a disruption and a distraction from the callous chaotic and corrupt culture of this administration all the way down i am not surprised at what he's doing. but i also know that we're focused on making it better because we don't leave the things that we love and when we love this country what that means
4:05 pm
is that we propose the solutions to fix it we love all people in this country despite pushback from democrats congressional republicans have been slow to can down one senator charged crossed a line another one of the few black republicans in congress accused of using racially offensive language but another top republican senator defended trump's attacks on the democratic congresswoman their socialist they are anti semitic they stand for all the things that most americans disagree with one analyst argues all this is part of trump's reelection strategy and the president believes that he got elected because he talked about the war he talked about the immigration he talked about the muslim being and so what we're seeing is donald trump $2.00 for his part donald trump denies any racial animus both of his record of lowering
4:06 pm
unemployment to take it literally among people of color and despite the shock of millions who hoard donald trump's latest statements there exists in the united states millions who support the president's attacks kimberly helped at al jazeera the white house well in his latest twitter attack the us president says the democratic congresswoman have been doing some of the most vile hateful and disgusting things ever said by a politician in the house or senate it's yet they get a free pass and the beginning brace from the democrats horrible anti israel anti usa pro terrorist and public shouting over the f. word why isn't the house voting to rebuke the filthy and things they have said. because they are the radical left and the democrats are afraid to take the long sads exclamation mark skidmore now with the call him in washington d.c.
4:07 pm
party how far is this going a polarizing both democrats and republicans well i think one of the remarkable things is the democrats had really been having a food fight amongst themselves between how progressive they should be should they be centrist in this upcoming election and now what he's done is really unified the democratic caucus as you mentioned they're going to have that resolution and what's very different this time is that in the resolution they call the comments racist they don't call the president racist but they call the comments racist what this has done though is really for some republicans to issue statements and we've seen a growing number of more than a dozen now saying that those comments are not a mare on american that they were wrong some republicans even calling them again racist so what's happening in the halls of congress is they're in session so normally when the president says something this controversial you see the members try to basically hide in their offices or in their home districts they can't do that right now because they're in session so what you've seen is reporters and
4:08 pm
cameras basically chasing them all over the capitol forcing them to make a statement on this so the president that is not letting this out of the headlines he's obviously know it by the resolution this is going to continue to dominate for yet another day in washington and throughout america is there some suspicion there that mr trump's tweets are actually bought of his reelection campaign. 100 percent he is telegraphing exactly what he's going to do in 2020 he knows that he won the presidency in large part by firing up his base if you've been to any rallies you know that the mostly white crowds are really fired up by his rhetoric so he's continuing this you they see he's trying to set the message that these young women of color are one of the commentators on fox of the canary in the coal mine and it's the end of a way of life and so he's going to double down on this what's interesting though if you look at some of the political analysis on this the president is talking on his base getting him
4:09 pm
a 2nd term his base is behind him he is hugely popular in the republican party his poll numbers are off the charts the problem for the president is self described republicans make up about 28 percent of this country so you can have the whole 20 percent on board that doesn't get you the presidency necessarily but if the president's advisors are telling him that he's obviously not listening he thinks his base is the key to another term or i better call him that from washington d.c. there on the supreme leader has spoken for the 1st time on britain's seizure of an iranian tanker in the role to give you said. the vicious british government committed piracy an attack down a ship they commit crimes and legalize it they're trying to legitimize this maritime robbery these lawmaker public will not leave such a vicious acts without a response. dosage of joins us from to run so this is obviously a very sensitive issue for iran why has this seizure of the tanker kicked up all
4:10 pm
this diplomatic role close. well sami because according to rein in officials it is an illegal seizure it's an act of what they call maritime piracy now the british navy sees this vessel it's a super size oil tanker that was carrying 2000000 barrels of rain in crude oil and it was seized by the british navy in the strait of gibraltar on july 4th the officials there say because it was heading to syria and the syrian government faces a number of e.u. sanctions that is why they seized this but the iranians say 1st of all that syria is not the destination of the grace one vessel and 2 those e.u. sanctions on the syrian government have not been endorsed by the united nations so therefore they were in use don't recognize them as binding they have recalled they have called the british ambassador here in the capital many times for the foreign ministry to show their case that their documentation about this vessel it's worth
4:11 pm
just to mention that the crude oil on board this vessel is worth about $200000000.00 u.s. and the iranians are demanding that the british government release this vessel now we've heard from the supreme leader who is very very strong language in the case that the rain ians will not let this act go without a response the supreme leader also spoke about another major issue face with the arabian government that is the nuclear deal of 2015 he said that the foreign ministry is said that the european signatories have 11 commitments which they have on honored none of them and the iranians will continue to scale back their commitment to this agreement in the weeks ahead all right thanks for that. heavy monsoon rains have caused havoc across large parts of south asia unleashing flash flooding and landslides and washing away buildings or the 130 people have been killed nepal india pakistan bangladesh have all been hit him in marm or the
4:12 pm

4:13 pm
this is what then tire southern belt of nepal looked like until sunday swollen rivers broke their banks forcing thousands from their homes 48 hours of nonstop rain all over departure triggered floods and landslides both in the southern plains and high in the mountains to. monsoon season takes the lives of many every year and our government has a disaster management plan which is supposed to be activated in times like these. the water has receded from the village of para where people have lost all their belongings they crowd around us to tell their stories most of them said even in these disastrous times they feel exploited because of their cost or position in a party society this is one of the poorest communities in the path to call the most r.'s one of the so-called untouchables now every year they get flooded and every
4:14 pm
year they say that they have not been getting any help from the government and right now they have been trying to access a local school which they say has been locked despite the fact that this entire area was flooded for at least 3 days we went to the school and found the classrooms law. there were very good but was a hard as they've been badly affected you are organizing an investigation team but they'll start working as soon as possible the parties are relieved that the floodwaters have receded and they can get on with their lives they want the government to build new infrastructure as well as improve the amount of assistance but fear their pleas will be forgotten until disaster strikes again it's been a stretch to understeer a parser district in nepal and staying in south asia least 24 people are feared dead in heavy rain and flash floods in pakistan administered kashmir roads and

4:16 pm
where we've got the worst of that weather the monsoon rains the southwest the winds getting squeezed up across the himalayas and rethreading down some massive dam plus you can see just up towards the dish up towards the kolkata pushing up into west bengal some very heavy rain as we take a closer look at things you can see that line the very wet weather that we're talking about than just struggling southern most areas of the himalayas and running really from northern parts of bangladesh pushing up across the northeast of india right up into those more than sections of pakistan and it really is not moving anywhere too quickly a similar picture as we go through wednesday and on into thursday further heavy showers up towards the west bengal all pushing up towards the northernmost parts of the region just edging up towards in the poles of further heavy showers here as we go on through the next couple of days slightly clearer skies summer a spot hopefully for a good part of bangladesh into me and ma but of course we are looking at the worst
4:17 pm
of that weather the flooding raise there eventually got to make their way further southward and that means squeezing their way down sammy right through the ganges. service and plenty more still ahead on the news hour including. communities in cape town accuse the place of letting gang violence birol out of control. fighting for their futures a way of grappling with drug problems and violence in the turbulent russia. and as for the world's most expensive football belatedly rejoin football or rather relatedly rejoins his teammates but his future frogs manes in doubt. members of the european parliament will soon vote on the top job and for the 1st
4:18 pm
time a woman has been nominated sort of on the land is in line to be the president of the european commission but she's facing opposition germany's defense minister needs a majority of votes and all of them to succeed john called younker proposed policies include a fan minimum wage and the deal on asylum seekers joe hall joins us from strasburg we're not far away now are we jennifer voting how's it shaping up there. about 3 hours now before the vote in the early evening here sammy and. the lion addressed the parliament during the course of the morning in what was billed ahead of time as the speech of her life in a real effort to try and win over the significant numbers of doubters among any p's in that parliament people who doubt some of them her record as defense minister which is not unblemished but many of them extremely angry and who doubt the
4:19 pm
electoral process that put her here in the 1st place she wasn't one of the candidates chosen by the parties to face the actual voters in the parliamentary elections in may instead her name emerged just a couple of weeks ago after tense negotiations among you council leaders behind closed doors it's a subversion of democracy say some any peace who want their leaders going forward to be much more democratically accountable so to win over support particular on the left and among the liberals she had to make a series of sweeping promises some say far too ambitious promises she may not be able to keep higher taxes for multinationals big spending on education programs parliamentary reform electoral process reform and here's what she had to say about climate change promising a green deal for europe to be launched in her 1st $100.00 days almost pressing challenge is keeping our planet healthy. this is the greatest responsibility and opportunity of our times i want europe to become the 1st climate
4:20 pm
neutral continent in the world by 2050. so a tense afternoon ahead as i said for. this vote stream li tide it could genuinely go either way they are going to make us sweat for this job this parliament if indeed they approve her at all thanks so much jonah holland there live from strasburg. so just who is sort of on the line or she's been germany's defense minister since 2013 she was the 1st woman to hold such a position in that role she argues for more german involvement in nato which she's also an advocate for closer military cooperation within the she's a close ally of german chancellor angela merkel and has been a minister in her government since 2005 within the european union
4:21 pm
vonda lion is part of the center right european people's party currently the largest party within the parliament compared to clap a is head of the brussels office of open europe a think tank joins us live from there now good to have you with us so 1st of all what do you make of the chances is she going to clinch this vote do you think. it's very hard to know simply because many of the social democrats have said that they will not support her but it is a secret vote so we can't really know for sure also some euro skeptics from italy and poland may ultimately vote for on the line but it's really hard to know i do think that ultimately ultimately she will narrowly be voted in. but what happens if she fails where does this leave the whole process of finding it
4:22 pm
european commission president. well the french president in monaco he has secured the presidency of the e.c.b. for a french lady christine lagarde a so it's very unlikely that they were open of the whole package again so there are very strong rumors that if vaughan the line would be rejected that somebody else from her own political group the centrists european people's party would be appointed now there are also rumors that within the e.p. many are not happy with some of the promises from the line has been made making particularly towards the left wing parties she has promised basically more europe more a concentration of power at the brussels level european minimum wage more control over national migration choices so this is something that is not appreciated by
4:23 pm
some people in the p.p. so perhaps because it's a secret vote many of them will actually not support her whatever happens it looks like it's going to be a close vote if she does scrape through what would such a weak victory mean for powers going forward. no law that much i think if she makes it she makes its and then everyone will just work with her i do think it will be important if she's reject it that her program of more concentration of power more sense for a zation in the e.u. has suffered a defeat and that could then make people think in the in the future whether they should repeat those kind of stances or i thank so much for the clapping.
4:24 pm
turkey says european union sanctions won't deter it from drilling for oil and gas off the coast of cyprus it's now sending a 4th ships to the area foreign ministers have suspended talks with turkey over an air transport agreement and there are calls for the european investment bank to review turkish lending turkish control of the northern part of cyprus is not internationally recognized greek cypriots control the south of the mediterranean island. and what are you up to them there for many years and we told if the greek cypriot side the e.u. or the un do not recognize the rights of the turkish cypriot side as a guarantor state and we shall protect it and we started drilling what comes next as we told the e.u. if they take measures like these ones we will increase our drilling activities we currently have 3 ships in the area and we shall deploy the 4th vessel to the area.
4:25 pm
so although has more now from istanbul. as for ankara statement so far it seems the turkey is positioned in this and mediterranean it stance will not be changed if following the decision to curb contacts and funding for turkey turkey believes that this decision by the e.u. is mainly politically motivated as a result of a pressure by greece and the greek cyprus this is what uncorrupt believes and the measures the measures that are mentioned will not be taken seriously turkey criticized the e.u. for giving political recommendations to central banks and investment banks and foreign minister cho shoulder said that this is what the e.u. has always been against then why are they doing this now also turkey believes that it has the upper hand in a surreal ations with the e.u. due to a refugee deal signed a couple of years ago for the syrian refugees turkey over the whole 3500000 syrian
4:26 pm
refugees and it has the power to stop this in illegal refrigerate influx to the e.u. that's why a turkish minister said that turkey will continue on its presence in this and mediterranean currently it has turkey has 3 ships one says make and 2 drill ships and they said mediterranean and will be sending a 4th one. soon as possible and before ship is as is expected to be a suspect one former south african president jacob zuma is back at a state commission hearing facing corruption allegations he says he's received death threats on monday he told the inquiry that he was the target of a conspiracy zoomer was forced from office last year accused of overseeing the most looting of state phones he denies any wrongdoing during his lawyer years for incident. also in south africa people in the city of cape town are accusing the police of not being able to control gang violence more than 100 people have been

4:29 pm
a $1000000.00 to gangsters. this man who doesn't want to be identified and belongs to a gang in lavender hill says poor policing is common i don't think the people here think the people the only women to put the lives are only interested in the closer so you know what you mean teargas is in something in a minute but when you're. in what do you do would you drop them directly what i'm going to think money the wheel did they get you now get you now would you worry she did go walking again while they may be from different gangs and often find themselves on the streets at. all the gang members we spoke to agree on one thing syncing in the army would only bring a temporary peace and that violence would likely return to the cape flats as soon as it withdraws from al-jazeera on the cape flats in cape town or already told you about some flooding let's continue here with everton more flooding in other parts of asia yeah i'm afraid so sammy so if we had the flooding across southern and
4:30 pm

4:31 pm
many of these parts as we go on through the next cup. days you will see this massive plan that's down and that's going to gradually push its way further northwards across the region then so what will stay going on into thursday it dries this way further north was slowly weakening in intensity and heading toward japan sammy thanks so much i was and was still ahead on al-jazeera out why one of india's largest says he's has run out of war so. what you don't want to feed to the fish how they're being suffocated by plastic in the nation water use. but it's well the world of boxing mourns the death of one of its greatest former champions. since in the discussions when he was the deadliest year the aviation industry has experienced for some time examining the headlines many foreign journalists

a 1000000 people have been displaced by those monsoon rivers but another areas people are experiencing severe drought a government report found 600000000 indians are facing high to extreme stress because of water shortages that's around half the population $200000.00 die each year as there are unable to get safe drinking water 70 percent of the water is contaminated by next year at least 20 cities will have run completely out of groundwater including new delhi fangirl ludo and chennai where the taps are already running dry and the schapelle has more. mana fills as many containers as she is able to carry after joining the queue for water but having to fetch supplies for herself. her husband and 2 small children interrupt her job. like they want a problem has become very troubling we go to work and then have to run back home
4:35 pm
one day with a tank arrives this has been our life lately in a single day and we come back from way too much of free time to feed water it's very difficult not just for us but for the whole city. the region is suffering a severe heat wave and seasonal monsoon rains haven't arrived many reservoirs are almost empty this is one of the 4 main ones in chennai a city of around 11000000 people. lives in a more affluent area than mohanna tanker supply those living in her apartment block with water every day but she says it's expensive and there's not enough there are crimes like when morning 7 o'clock we know how water that's when we need to get the need for walk and sometimes you want to water to you in but out for the 1st few it is we have no other jars but to use the drinking water because there was no water but ok we had the offered ability so we did but looking at it it's a crying you know the big bringing water and then to use it for your satellite
4:36 pm
images show the city's largest reservoir at put a lake has emptied over the past year oh you know what i would be better if you would have to have a video where you know that one development expert says the city's authorities have wrongly invested in big projects like desalination plants instead of making better use of existing facilities at the moment and the city is facing of it if he would want to play this and the government is also indulged in crisis management but cases movement going to be the solution you really have to think very loudly i do is a means of storing it in water in that additional water bodies that are available are plenty i don't and they said it millions of leaders of water are being brought into chennai by train but the metropolitan water board authority says its water storage practices aren't to blame for the shortage it's the weather. still this sort of scene could be repeated in other parts of the country a government funded study says there are 20 other cities across india that are facing the same problem and you should help out to see. gertie sharma is founder
4:37 pm
and president of the forum for organize resource conserve conservation and in huntsman's joins us by skype from new delhi good to have you with us 1st of all explain to us why cities like should i have no running water infrastructure you know taps and so on in the 1st place. mother simply use her. if they certainly want her infrastructure but what's making the situation so far is the lack of water at source it's not the distribution the source itself doesn't power water now as we've heard in the report there there are suggestions that mismanagement has contributed to this lack of source depleted water reservoirs what kind of mismanagement are we talking about. actually india has is hit on 2 sides why many is that we are too many people we
4:38 pm
have a bucket in percent of the world's population but only 4 percent of the world's water sources so we already have a water problem on top of that our problem is economic and administrative mismanagement of our water resources so as you know i heard some of the experts talking a short just now instead of focusing on sustainability measures before crisis hits us we actually run around scrounging for warco when we have a very good reserves of as a boy is to store the monsoon water that we get in just 2 months so mismanagement at source is certainly a problem. can traditional water bodies now be filled put enough to confront this crisis. now. act best one grandfather's not enough to handle a crisis of this proportion and even if the crisis because of this for
4:39 pm
a couple of months it would have done again i think what the country needs now is planning for sustainability so selfish n.c. instead of climbing from the supply side we need to start looking administrative units as sense selfish and. uses of what sort of what the port of budgeting to ensure that we use only as much water as we have access to. we have done a study where we did a study for 6 of the top cities in the country including tonight where is our study shows that if we just manage the water properly we wouldn't need. to try and find any other use sources our water act on we have enough all right thank you so much for your thoughts so much though. and least 2 people have been killed up to 15 feared trapped after a 4 story residential building collapse in the indian city of mumbai the building
4:40 pm
was nearly 100 years old it's located in a congested area a fire official said families living there have been asked to leave some time ago but didn't a palestinian man has died while in detention in the israeli jail according to palestinian rights groups the 31 year old was being held in solitary confinement after being arrested in a raid a month ago to get more now on this with bernard smith who joins us from the man's home town of beit for jarl in the occupied west bank so berger what are the israeli authorities saying about the circumstances of his death. or the israeli or forages are telling us a lot at the moment sami we do know the 31 year old nasser was arrested just less than a month ago and his family say what he was there and the stance of a healthy working mom was dead within a month less than
4:41 pm
a month of being is any israeli custody we know that he only saw his lawyer once he was held in solitary confinement his lawyer saw him once on the 11th very very briefly when it is tension was extended and at that time his lawyer asked that nasa be given a check up in hospital that was done in the hospital released him they said without any unusual findings that's coming from israeli or thor it says but his family say that the israeli authorities are responsible for nasa's death sami. what about palestinians reaction i guess they're seeing this slightly differently. well the foreign ministry says that the israelis are responsible for nasa's death and they want an international investigation under the supervision of the i.c.r.c. and the issue for palestinian sami is that you'll be hard pressed to find anyone any palestinian who doesn't have a relative or does know somebody who at some stage has been arrested by the israeli or forit is we have what more than 2000 palestinians in israeli custody and every
4:42 pm
night about 10 to 20 arrested in israeli security raids and those $220.00 palestinians of dying in israeli car custody since $967.00 so it's an issue very close to palestinian the heart it really touches home for many of them and that's why there is so much concern of what's happened to nasser sami because stuff there from berlin smith the lower house of the u.s. congress has passed 2 bills on saudi arabia condemning human rights abuses and seeking sanctions over the murder of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi it's also criticized riyadh for detaining female human rights activists because show de bill received an overwhelming $405.00 of 7 votes requiring the director of national intelligence to name those involved in the killing this finds a strong bipartisan backing emerges maybe challenge in the republican dominated senate. yet another detailed description of the continuing war in yemen has been
4:43 pm
