of the most powerful atlanta storms ever recorded kills at least 5 people in the bahamas. the u.k. prime minister braces for legal challenges and a showdown in parliament over his brags it plans. hong kong's leader kerry lamb has dismissed the leaked all the recording of her saying she would resign if she had the choice comments were recorded during a private lunch last week and came after 3 months of anti-government protests when he reports. he seems to be no end in sight to the protests in hong kong and no sign that the government is willing to bow to any of the protesters demands but in a conversation with business leaders that was leaked to the media the city's chief executive indicated she wanted to walk away or a chance. to. show.
10:02 am
so. just. first thing is to. i was later in her weekly media conference kerry said it was unacceptable that the private conversation had been recorded and she sought to clarify her comments about resigning i have never i have never attended a resignation to the central people's government. i have not even contemplated to discuss a resignation. for the central people's government. the choice of not resigning is my own choice oh no no no the resignation of the chief executive was one of the key demands of the protesters when they began taking to the streets their rallies
10:03 am
started when the government tried to introduce an extradition bill which would have allowed criminal suspects to be sent to mainland china for trial carry lamb says the bill is did the protesters want her to officially withdraw it the leaked comments from kerry lamb come just days after another media report suggested that the central government in china had rejected a proposal by her to withdraw the extradition bill the report claimed that beijing ordered her not to agree to any of the protesters demands she also said in the lead gaudio that the government in beijing has no plans to put soldiers on the streets of hong kong to try to win the crisis and that her power is particularly limited at the moment because of the trade war between china and the united states plus how long how the chief executive who of course. was just 2 hearts is hostage for. several hours. now that hurt her
10:04 am
already. there are already allegations that kerry lamb leaked the audio herself to try to ease the pressure on her which she says is not true the controversy is likely to have little impact on the situation with both sides no closer to finding a resolution wayne hay al jazeera hong kong idea brown is live for us now from hong kong so a.g.m. does this we can carry lambs position is she she really on the defensive now as a result of this leak doria recording. well i think it is almost certainly highly embarrassing for her political masters in beijing as well as being embarrassing for her it's embarrassment on top of humiliation and of course what it demonstrates to the outside world is if they had any doubt that kerry lam was not really in charge of hong kong they have that confirmation now it is
10:05 am
a reminder if you wanted it that beijing continues to pull the political strings in this deepening political crisis as to what happens next well carol lam insists that she's going to remain chief executive she says i have my own approach for trying to deal with this protracted problem and has decided that actually going would be the worst possible option but certainly here at this demonstration on covering not far away from carrie lamb's office everyone here would be very happy if kerry were to resign also the other takeout i get from kerry lamb's comments is this if it's true that she said she wanted to withdraw the extradition bill and beijing refused or if it's also true she offered to resign and beijing refused it then it's quite clear that this crisis could have been resolved weeks months ago if beijing had allowed her to have allowed her to do what she wanted to do and of course there is more protests this tuesday in the form of this general strike what's happening there.
10:06 am
on. well as i say behind me is a large number of people who are taking part in the 2nd day of a 2 day strike organized by the confederation of trade unions here in hong kong in fact it's more like a half day action and they're gathering on a lawn very close to the headquarters of the local people's liberation army headquarters as well as the government complex here and you've got people here from all walks of life in hong kong people from the finance sector the insurance sector restroom. workers and they're all here to reinforce the demands of the protesters that carry a drop that highly contentious extradition bill many people here are wearing face masks they don't want to be identified because they worry about retribution from their employers because well some employers might be very understanding about their staff attending with meeting this gathering others have not and of course they

worry they could ultimately lose their jobs all right for the moment adrian brown live for us there in hong kong thanks. the iranian oil tanker that was seized after brawl to before being released has reportedly now turned off its tracking beacon the edgy and barrier one formerly known as the grace one switched off the tracker on monday shipped tracking websites have previously shown the vessel off the coast of lebanon and heading northward u.s. secretary of state might pompei or has said the u.s. has intelligence that the ship is heading to the syrian port of tartus also jabari is live for us now in iran's capital tehran for door so what do we know about this what more do we know about this tanker and where it's allegedly heading. well as i'm according to iranian officials they have not disclosed where exactly this ship is heading since it was released by the authorities in gibraltar on
10:08 am
august 15th this ship has made its way towards various different countries 1st greece then turkey and finally the last known location in lebanon now since then we don't know where it is currently but the raid officials have said that they have not disclose where it's going but the spike that the syrian destination of the rate that they've been accused of where this was headed they say that the e.u. sanctions against the syrian government are not recognized by the iranian officials because they haven't been endorsed by the united nations that is why they call this seizure earlier in july an act of piracy you know this was what the iranians said that the americans trying to flex their power when they put pressure of the british government to seize this vessel and the $28.00 crewmembers on board on july the 4th in the strait of gibraltar the iranians say that this was an act of hostility towards this tanker which is carrying $2100000.00 barrels of iranian crude oil worth over $130000000.00. and why why is the status of this ship
10:09 am
so important why will why is this so much attention on this particular tanker. well firstly because the americans have said that this is a sanctioned tanker the us treasury sanction to the green one if you're in their area one on friday because they said that what was on this vessel the funds would go to the revolutionary guards that they deem the terrorist organization in april the u.s. government has said that anybody that does the business with this vessel and what's on board this vessel will be facing heavy fines the americans have said that they are going to do everything they can to pressure the iranians to come back to the negotiating table since they withdrew from the 2015 nuclear agreement and we've heard just earlier today from iranian president hassan rouhani who was speaking of parliament who said that they were the number of opportunities presented to the
10:10 am
iranian officials to hold dialogue with the american government but the refuse then the answer will continue to be negative because the iranians say since the u.s. withdrew from the agreement last year they've imposed a series of sanctions on iran to try and pressure the iranian officials to come back to the negotiating table and the rain say that until these sanctions are lifted there will be no discussion between the 2 governments dorsal thanks for that dosage of body into. now hurrican dorrian is ravaging the northern bahamas in the caribbean at least 5 people have died and thousands of homes have been destroyed after made landfall as a category 5 storm it's now we can to a category 3 but it's still considered life threatening and is expected to make its way to the southeast coast of the u.s. and the gallagher reports from florida. complete devastation that it is cars mind
