the programming tory m.p.'s had not really been behind these plans they hadn't really supported the overall effort led by the labor leader jeremy corbin however there has been real outrage in response to this move by boris johnson today dominic grieve the senior conservative m.p. has said that he thinks the government will now fold over this so this definitely has the possibility of forcing conservative m.p.'s who are against a new deal to back some kind of more extreme measure including a vote of no confidence in the government and a suggestion how do you think that e.u. leaders will be looking on at all of this do you think that the french and german leaders there at all surprised by this move so soon after the g 7 especially you know positive meetings between bars johnson and angle a medical where she said that he has 30 days to come up with an alternative a new e.u. with for one agreement. well i think ultimately the talks between
6:01 pm
boris johnson and e.u. leaders were a side show the way that breaks it is going to be decided the outcome of breaks it is here in the u.k. and it's ultimately all about now what these opposition parties are able to pull together ahead of the brics that deadline to try and stop boris johnson he's vowed to deliver bricks it do or die and ultimately the ball is now in their court to see if they can find some way of building a coalition of support to try and stop that this is johnson is great to get your expertise on this me appreciate your time that is john johnston live and london thank you. we're going to hong kong now where protesters are turning their anger against the airline cathay pacific on after 12 weeks of rallies demonstrators are gathering in the central financial district after more than 20 of the carrier star were fired for protesting it follows
6:02 pm

6:03 pm
and what they are calling still is for beijing of course to get its hands all to allow those businesses to run themselves the way they used to for people to be able to have free speech as you mentioned cathay pacific is fired several people for expressing support for the anti government really going through social media or by attending the reli themselves official you know the reason given was for security for the chinese aviation authority so they didn't want people who might be potentially emotionally unstable because of their village school you points to be on board busy a craft would you want to graph flying into the space that you actually could create a charity or. i told them the people here say that simply not true it's about beijing's as a growing interference in the workplace in hong kong about china saying that if you want to continue would doing and doing business in china then you need to distance yourself from the protest movement and any chance wayne of these protesters
6:04 pm

6:05 pm
a peaceful end but no one representing the protest movement has been involved in those talks so far no sign that they will be in the short term unified way now thank you very much for that for now that's wayne hay with the latest live from those protests and hong kong thank you. now a stranger is denying that one of its citizens arrested in china is a spy and is calling for his immediate release yang julian has been detained in beijing since january and what a strange says had been harsh conditions he was a chinese diplomat and became an australian citizen in 2002 gangs lawyer said on tuesday that his client had been charged with espionage that said the basis of the charge was unclear the story is foreign minister says the government is working to secure his release. to iraq now where many people are still looking for their relatives 2 years after the battle for the city of mosul human rights groups are calling for d.n.a. testing and bodies recovered from the rubble to help family members who remain in

6:07 pm
old city of mosul although civil defense says that most bodies of bin exuma what i cannot show you about this place is the very strong stench that people in this area have to live with. it's hard to breathe but some residents are used to the smell parents are concerned about safety and the spread of disease from decomposing corpses 800 bodies of children have been examined rights human rights commission wants to help ministry to expedite d.n.a. tests of the thousands of recovered bodies besides closure.
6:08 pm
last rites and of death certificate we can't even start the process without the death certificate and they won't give us one until they have a body the bodies are now decomposed and probably mixed with i saw bodies under the rubble and i'm not alone this is a collective issue that needs to be at rest the cleanup will take millions of dollars and the local municipality has lost more than 70 percent of its equipment during the war even after 2 years it's an overwhelming task and. has become a city of rubble we have formed a committee to deal with the old city and it'll start working soon to give us an inclusive outlook for basic ordination in finding effective mechanism. during the intense battles and most of the small graveyards were formed those who suspect their relatives are under the rubble also want proper burials and possible closure
6:09 pm
for some of the jabot other they are the old city of mosul. at least $23.00 people have been killed in an attack on a bar in mexico it happened on tuesday night in the southeastern city of course the attackers started a fire which injured 13 people police say the blaze may have been lit with gasoline bombs. now the u.s. and mexico reached a deal 8 months ago to allow tens of thousands of asylum seekers to wait for their court hearings in mexico the asylum seekers mainly from on the border and el salvador were promised jobs and shelter under the remain and mexico plan but as john holland reports from the border town of tier one a that isn't happening. roland his son the well are heading home they too have an estimated $40000.00 u.s. asylum seekers mostly from guatemala from salvador and like them from honduras but over the border into mexico to wait for their process to play out it's
6:10 pm
a relatively new deal before they would have waited in the u.s. mexico's president promised work health and education while they're here for riled an oil that hasn't materialized enough alone on the you can only play when all we haven't got the documents to work here and we can't leave the shelter because it's dangerous around here and my son can't go to school either together or he says given all that in the 5 month wait before his asylum hearing next january he's got no choice but to go home it's happening all over to quanah where there are close 212000 u.s. asylum seekers. churches and charities not the government running the show that housed them providing classes for their children a meal since many have been issued the visas to work. the government has a double discourse it said there's a lot of opportunities for migrants in mexico and they welcome the team practice we haven't seen a lot of support. but we reached out to several minutes can migrant shelters in
6:11 pm
different cities they all said the same case is written on the in june i asked president why the government wasn't doing more he said it had a plan for thousands jobs in border factories for the migrants and it would cut through any visa bureaucracy there's a few months later one aboard a factory owners so they do have those vacancies but the government hasn't helped to get them filled. with the work they're doing. now i think they have to work faster at the end they have to. not fast enough. i mean meanwhile. as asylum seekers continue to arrive private shelters have actually had the government funds cut despite the lack of a state shelter here i asked the federal representative why shawn came to get. they've been found by altruistic people but then not part of the stays the big
6:12 pm
problem is that the state never took care of migrants but now it's doing this it's providing a shelter for them. he says that there will be a governmental shelter working from this week ready to house 5000 that's been promised to be fool not to live it but at the top if it does appear many like roland the whale would already have vanished and their american dream with the. john home and now does it or to one or. so i had on the news that. i know we're going to go we're going to. but it's a day of upsets of the u.s. tell you why.

6:24 pm
crisis on. the ultranationalist monks connected with one of the world's worst humanitarian crises we doe as staff any gaily maigret joining with the military to impose a deadly political agenda we have to flow to our nation what has happened to the engine that's one of the biggest stains on the country as a whole. is another religion this is a politics. an unholy alliance on al-jazeera. we've got to be bringing forward new and important bills that's why we are going to have a queen speech we're going to do it on october 14th the u.k. prime minister confirms parliament will be suspended just 2 weeks ahead of the bracks it deadline the opposition calls it
6:25 pm
a coup. hello again i'm martin denis you're without is there a live from doha also coming up the set of alerting gulzar after 3 police officers are killed in suicide attacks linked to eisele. brazil agrees to accept international aid to fight the amazon forest fires but insists it will decide how to use the money. an open secret al-jazeera uncovers doping among kenyan athletes training alongside some of the world's top runners. but let's start with the breaking news and coming from london the u.k. prime minister boris johnson will suspend pollin meant until mid october many are saying this is a bid to ensure that the u.k.
6:26 pm
leaves the european union by the end of october deadline you know physician is calling the move a coup saying it would leave members of parliament little time to debate it prime minister johnson insists this is the right thing to do. this is a new government with a very exciting agenda to make our streets safer which very important we bring violent crime down we need to invest in our fantastic n.h.s. we need to level up education funding across the country we need to invest in the infrastructure that's going to take this country forward for the decades and we need to deal with the cost of living moving to a high wage high productivity economy which is i think what this country needs to be and to do that we need new legislation we've got to be bringing forward new and important bills and that's why we are going to have a queen's speech and we're going to do it on october the 14th and this was the reaction from the speaker of the house of commons john bercow just
6:27 pm
a short while ago he released a statement saying this may represent a constitutional outrage and goes on to say that shutting down parliament would be an offense against the democratic process and the rights of parliamentarians as the people's elected representatives well lawrence lee is our correspondent he has more from london. they has or had as of yesterday that almost ruled out a no confidence vote because they thought they couldn't win it and instead we're going to try to introduce legislation and and pass a law blocking breck's it on the 31st of october. until some other sort of deal or next election happens or something like that would weapon instead now it seems that there's probably very little chance that they can introduce any sort legislation in the available time and so whatever boris johnson says about there being ample scopes and goes to talk about brick says it isn't really true and as a consequence they are now back to 5 and think about
6:28 pm
a no confidence votes either potentially next week the 1st week of parliament or some points in in october when when parliament starts as it's again after being suspended but it's all going to come down to possibly a couple of dozen or so conservative m.p.'s who have said that they will not support a no deal breck's it and whether they're prepared to vote with all the opposition parties and against their own conservative party to try to stop him all right let's wait now to john johnson who's from the political web site politics home thank you for talking to us this is either an incredibly clever government maneuver to head off these pesky parliamentarians who are plotting and scheming to do all sorts of things to try and do rail boris johnson's plan or this is this huge affront to democracy and a constitutional outrage. yes well boris has essentially called the bluff of the opposition m.p.'s who've been meeting over the last couple of weeks to
6:29 pm
try and come up with a plan to stop a new deal brags that obviously there has been a huge amount of anger in response to this move what he's done is he's extended the recess period that british politicians get here in order to attend their party conferences is extended out from fire from 3 weeks to 5 weeks essentially closing down a good chunk of time where these m.p.'s had hoped to try and bring forward some kind of new legislation in the commons to stop him in his tracks from leaving without a deal right so the legislative option seems to have been shut off pretty much as a consequence of this what about the vote of no confidence in the government that lawrence just referred to could the opposition m.p.'s plus the rebels within the conservative party could they muster the numbers in order to make the government for. all initially the numbers for it voted no confidence look quite difficult
6:30 pm
because the kind of following procedure we we we couldn't seem to get any answers on whether they would support the possibility of jeremy corbyn the labor leader leading a caretaker government this was the plan he would lead a caretaker government extend the article 50 process essentially pushing the brakes a deadline further away and calling a general election but there has been a significant amount of anger from pro remain conservative m.p.'s today at this action by boris johnson so it seems very likely know that there would be enough of them who would be potentially willing to vote to bring down their own government what about the role of the d u p of course the northern irish party who have this arrangement with the government of confidence and supply how are they viewing this this maneuver this tactic. well there hasn't been a huge amount of response for them yet generally they have been backing mr johnson
6:31 pm
obviously if there's a general election their position could be changed if mr jones and wins majority their support will be less required in the new parliament but they have been relatively supportive of his position obviously they are very against this stop proposal that has been the kind of hard on the brakes in the goshi ations this is the the procedure the insurance policy that stops her from being a hard boarder on the island of ireland but mr johnson has essentially said that he will agree no new deal with the e.u. that includes the backstop policy in any form so obviously you know this is something that they're incredibly interested all right john johnston thank you very much. now hamas is declared a state of alert ingalls after 3 police officers were killed in 2 separate suicide attacks the 1st hit a police checkpoint with 2 officers died less than an hour later there was a 2nd explosion at another checkpoint killing
6:32 pm
a 3rd officer the attacks were carried out by groups linked to eisele. these events only serve the israeli occupation which tried to stab the palestinian resistance in the back what the occupation could not achieve by launching walls on gaza not be achieved by such bombings and more now from our correspondent in gaza harry forsett this is the funeral procession for 2 of the 3 hamas police but policemen who were killed in a double attack late on tuesday night are reporting suggests that one attacker came with an explosives laden motorcycle he left out of one checkpoint just an agent remotely killing 2 policemen he then went on with explosives attached to himself and designated himself in those explosives killing a 3rd policeman this is an aside which has come out of the blue there are people on the streets here to market it has shocked people in gaza hamas the
6:33 pm
failings inside gaza the economic troubles the security problems with israel have come to at least rely on hamas to some extent on security so this is come as a shock there's a good deal of outrage and support for what we understand to be a crackdown being undertaken by how the security forces against the suspects in just those aspects be sol office pro isis al qaida style ideology groups now they have long been opposed to what has been going on in the south of gaza in terms of hamas is cooperation with egyptian security egypt is trying to crack down on this movement in the sinai peninsula and. in recent years hamas has been collaborating with egyptian security and you people are making it harder to get across the border there was an attack such as this and 2017 in southern gaza this attack has come right in the center of gaza city so we understand there have been
6:34 pm
arrests and asked does monitor the activities of these groups it stream we closely so the fact that this is not in the midst tamas a shock to hamas and to the people there the syrian government forces have attacked a turkish military observation post in the northwestern countryside of hama province it's unclear whether this monitoring point was hit by an airstrike or by artillery shells but earlier the turkish president rather tired bedouin held talks with his russian counterpart vladimir putin on ending violence in italy province neighbors how my province president wanted to make sure that turkish troops aren't targeted in the so-called deescalation zones to yemen now the un recognized government has launched an attack against u.s. backed southern separatists in aden where they've taken control of the international airport is the latest move to recapture the port city from the
