5:05 am
convention against doping in sport and began to harmonize their legislations but the world anti-doping agency still has no operational role it is the responsibility of the sports federations to find cheaters and therein lies the main problem. or has 2015 beijing hosts the 15th world athletics championships organized by the i.w. and the international association of athletics federations since the 2008 olympic games china has excelled at organizing sporting events for 9 days almost 1900 athletes from 208 countries watched by 6000000000 television viewers. and the i.w.a. after the event and sells television rights to broadcasters oddly though they are
5:06 am
also responsible for enforcing anti doping regulations it's a system which makes the federations both judge and jury. holo competition roller coaster suv stop it i join our lawsuit bubble. and of course the question was ill pulled is old was the only player for the charger sources that i hope shall apply to what was. behind the finishing line doping inspectors and members of the international federation await the athletes selected for testing i have the stuff the past 3 days so we are secure in knowing that the don't concede a can of mace many of the athletes that have been selected were required to do so in a case of stunts off the bus in the proceedings and. in

5:37 am
to receive this information so that they in a country like pressure the they have to share this information because the main goal is not to catch their peers the main goal is to help people in the gold medals . the russian anti-doping agency disputes the accusations. vitali he has refused to cooperate with us on this matter. and for us it's a pity if you want to fight against doping in sport you should not only give these bold statements publicly it's not enough just to you know appear in the screen and say everyone is corrupted facts and presumptions that what we need to have in order to establish an underdog and. the evidence was collected by high level.

5:43 am
this show of toughness to the leaders of world football really provide the necessary means to catch cheats in 1954 had all the samples destroyed after the world cup thus avoiding any subsequent unmasking of drug cheats in 2006 no blood samples were taken in 2014 the laboratory that tested the samples was in no zone over 12 hours away from rio after 12 hours tiny doses of a no longer detectable in urine samples so is the myth of clean football to be believed retired player right world champion in 1904 is skeptical. so. what you would. hope it is. really my article vital to those. sports working to control the strain of the strain of the of he used to look at as

a visit from u.s. vice president mike pence and this was the message from the white house the united states is ready willing and able to immediately negotiate a free trade agreement with the u.k. the national health service is not a table as far as a negotiation and. we're not using all that already. we have we have a already thinking of our own. then light sounds off the remark aimed at the labor opposition leader i think to the shop thank you all very much but it's time to move on and i thought i was writing the passive story i think a part there's nothing funny about the latest resignation and the prime minister's brother joe johnson quitting as junee a business minister he tweeted in recent weeks i've been told between family loyalty and the national interest it's an unresolvable tension and time for others
5:52 am
to take on my roles. thank you the prime minister was asked about his brother's departure if your own brother can't back you why should anyone else joe doesn't agree with me about the european union because it's a it's an issue that obviously do divides families and divides everybody but i think joe would agree is that we need to get on and sort this thing out and so what next all seems set for boris johnson to again seek parliamentary approval to call the election next monday but does the labor leader jeremy corbyn accept that all scupper it again boxing in boris johnson even more than he is already and ruth simmons out 0 westminster let's go live now to john holl who's outside parliament in westminster a journey we know sibling squabble all the time but the timing of this resignation
5:53 am
as far as johnson's brother could not be why are screwed it. absolutely it's a week for boris johnson it's gone from bad to worse he's lost control of his own majority and with it control of the house of commons he's lost control of his own brakes its strategy and now he's lost his brother from the cabinet with that let me bring in my guest patrick dimond joins me he's a senior lecturer in politics and international relations but formally director of . planning and policy forgive me under 2 former labor prime ministers tony blair and gordon brown he hasn't even got control mr johnson of the timing of the election he now so badly well yeah i mean a week is a long time in politics and with drugs and our seems like a period of eternity things change so quickly that boris johnson a week ago was in a position where he appeared to have lots of options politically had lots of places he could go his strategy was fairly clear today he looks like a prime minister who's in office but clinging to power his options are running out
5:54 am
he's running out of road his premiership looks like it's in some serious difficulty and he depends now on the support essentially of just of jeremy coleman in the labor party in a motion for a general election expected to come on monday do you think jeremy corbyn will instruct his m.p.'s to vote for that while the mood in the labor party is somewhat splits there is a group around jeremy cope and he would like to have an election as soon as possible so when the legislation is passed formally through parliament at the beginning of next week they would like to move very quickly to an election i think there is a mood also there among other labor m.p.'s and among some of the other opposition parties who would like to keep boris johnson hanging for longer this is partly of course to avoid the calamity of a new deal bragg's as they would see it keep johnson in say that the no deal is properly avoided but in addition to that wait longer and put johnson on the pressure there's a sense that he is starting paps to weaken to crumble the longer he stays in that position the more vulnerable the look and therefore the easier he might be to beat in a general election give him a bit more rope essentially but he also points to
5:55 am
a real crisis of trust doesn't it i mean half of that more than half of that is a problem simply doesn't trust the word of this prime minister yeah that's been i think boris johnson's fundamental problem in all of this we have a prime ministerial system in britain not a presidential system and when the prime minister loses the confidence of the majority of m.p.'s in the house of commons let's not forget m.p.'s in his own party in some cases because of the 21 m.p.'s of lost the whip that position begins to weaken and as things stand boris johnson has fewer than 300. m.p.'s are supporting him on the whip that's not a tenable long term position so he is really running seriously out of options it's not clear where he goes from here and patrick worth pointing out that with all this talk of a general election the assumption seems to be made by many that it will break that breaks it impasse there's no evidence of that in the polls whatsoever we could well end up with another hung parliament i think that's absolutely right the academic projections suggest that the election results if there was an election in the next couple of months would be exactly the same as it was in 2017 you have
5:56 am
a hung parliament not the labor or the conservatives able to command a majority in the house of commons so a general election it must be said may resolve very little in terms of the politics of bricks and yet one has now you never travel pattern diamond thank you very much that opposition lead and the no deal bill makes its way through the house of lords expected to clear it by the end of friday make legislation on monday and then we'll have another vote in the house of commons behind me on whether to call a snap general election much more to come down a whole life or is outside the palace of westminster. and boris johnson's problems don't start there his plan to suspend parliament for 5 weeks is facing a major legal challenge and to fix a campaign as have accused him of an unlawful abuse of power and judgement is expected in the high court on friday child angela has more. this hearing focused on the question of power whether or not the prime minister abused his in requesting such a long suspension of parliament 23 days the longest suspension since 19 lawyers acting
5:57 am
for gina miller who supported in this case by former conservative prime minister john major argued that the prime minister misled the queen in justifying such a lengthy suspension don't think claim that he wanted to get a handle on domestic issues look into the any chance to tackle violent crime but lawyers here argue that really what he wants to do was run down the clock on bricks that debate on the other side the prime minister's lawyers are arguing this is also about the power of these courts and they say that they have no power to rule on this issue it is a constitutional matter they cannot intervene or do it and that is part of the problem here the u.k. constitution is not one single written document it's a very fine tissue of procedures laws amendments unusual practices and it really depends very heavily on politicians playing fair in following the norms and what
5:58 am
gina minutes ago was arguing is that the prime minister has flouted those norms and in doing so you could set a very dangerous precedent of the judges here have a judge and they're going to reconvene on friday at 9 g.m.t. that is when they will give the decision. boris johnson is also had a busy day with other foreign leaders including a meeting with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu that held talks inside 10 downing street on strengthening ties between countries and security in the middle east the stressed the need for dialogue and a diplomatic solution on the rhone netanyahu surprise trip to london was only announced on wednesday as he boarded a flight from israel as he said the meeting was perfect timing to increase pressure on iran. coming up on the. al-jazeera news hour from london at least 20 confirmed dead in the bahamas after hurricane dorian the storm is now hammering the u.s. east coast release from jail shot news from ukraine as the mh 17 case takes an unexpected

nuclear research facility in the country where the controversial 20 percent enriched uranium is being used josser jabari has this exclusive report from the tech front nuclear research reactor. this is the reason iran says its nuclear program needs 20 percent enriched uranium to keep its 1st nuclear reactor working. the center of the 5 megawatt reactor does all the work its source is a number of chemical elements which scientists here call a fuel assembly before it came into use in 2009 iran had to import 20 percent enriched uranium from argentina you know i go with this reactor originally used 90 percent of fuel in the past produced by an american company that it was realized reactors like this could work with 20 percent fuel as well so the change all reactors in a way to use 20 percent field including our reactor in 1903. but since iran began producing its own uranium rival powers have objected they're concerned with that

technology reaching those higher grades of enrich uranium above 90 percent would mean being able to produce a nuclear weapon.
