11:00 pm
until that pivotal last couple of weeks in october. i think i think what happens because the suspension coincides with all the party conferences the liberal democrats the labor party and the conservatives all have their party conferences those those will effectively become election agenda setting things where all the parties outline what all their policies are going to be on the assumption that unless boris johnson can somehow stop the attempts to delay bricks it's that there's an election then presumably in venda i think the key one plainly is going to be conservative party conference because there's so much talk about the potential for boris johnson having to resign that everybody will looking at his behavior and his is his powers of persuasion at conservative party conference to see if they think he's actually got anything in him to to try to cajole or somehow persuade the european union to to to to back his proposal for alternative
11:01 pm
arrangements and if not then you might expect some sort of jockeying behind the scenes to see who my fancy having a go replacing him all of these things plainly are all happening at exactly the same time directly before parliament comes back and then the crucial european council meeting in the middle of october and they have to decide if they're prepared to agree to this to late subjects it's that obviously is contingent on the being another election being being confirmed by then so no problem is not sitting yes everything still to play for indeed largely live for us there in london thanks last. lebanese armed group has one less says it's shot down an israeli drone outside the border town of rania its fighters say they now have the aircraft israel and hezbollah exchange far along the lebanese border just over a week ago so in a hot air has more from beirut. this is the 1st time since 2006 that hezbollah says it's down to an israeli drone over lebanese territory in 2006 israel and hezbollah

11:03 pm
area which has really a heavy presence of iranian backed fighters according to reports a base being built by the iranians was hit and some more monitors are reporting at least 18 iranian backed fighters were killed there's been no confirmation as of yet from syrian state media but clearly israel expanding its scope of operations against iran and its allies in the region like we mentioned syria over the past 2 weeks there have been attacks mysterious attacks which nobody has claimed targeting iraqi backed iranian groups in iraq and of course there's a recent drone strike as though the drone incident in beirut so tensions lebanon in the eye of the storm as tensions rise between iran and the united. states and iran and israel. the syrian government has condemned joint u.s. and turkish patrols in the northwest as a flagrant violation of its sovereignty on vehicles returned to turkey on sunday

donations but the need here in the bahamas is so great that any donations of food water medicine hygiene kits like these donated by the red cross are all very much welcome. shelters for the displaced can be found all around nassau which is home to 70 percent of the country's total population but as more evacuees arrive space becomes limited relief workers have begun setting up tents ahead of the arrival of even more evacuees the concern now is that nassau may not be prepared for the long term care of the thousands whose communities have been destroyed many will rob lowe al-jazeera now so bahamas. in chile riot police out forward protesters demanding on . the victims a former dictator augusto pinochet demonstrators marched in the capital santiago before the anniversary of pinochet's rise to power in 1973 thousands were killed and disappeared during his 17 years of military rule. for half years of war in

11:15 pm
a they have seen british airways make profits and they feel that that probably should be shared with them more than it currently is and basically they would like priest now that i think be a of off that about 11 and a half over the next 3 years and the pilots and the unions are not happy with that which is why they're on strike and the reason they're on strike now well is the back end of the summer is still a fairly busy period for british airways for aviation europe in general and so have the strike now has a bigger impact on corporations and profits than it would be later on in the year and so the the impact operate is quite significant that it lucky obviously that they've had a bit of pre-warning about the strikes they've had about 14 days notification from the pilots that the part that the flights will be canceled will struggle to place and therefore be a have been able to do some pre-planning around the dock an impact is quite
11:16 pm
significant and financially i think many industry experts are estimating some of the region of about $14000000.00 in pounds for each day that the strike goes on president vladimir putin's united russia party has lost a 3rd of its seats in moscow's regional election but it retains its majority the communist party more than doubled its seats in sunday's election dozens of opposition independent candidates were banned from running and that provoked some of the largest anti government protests for years. now martial arts championships are wrapping up in senegal top athletes are using the african vent to qualify for next month's kung foole world championships about thousands of others in west africa the tournament is a great way to get more people involved in the sport paul van de worth reports. when you think of kung fu. names like bruce lee and jackie chan spring to mind.

11:22 pm
or escalation of gaming this by negative consequences. though is spreading all over the world and only affects the small number of people who play video games one of the 1st countries dealing with the disorder has been japan to better understand the symptoms of the disorder we traveled there and met 2 young boys die and susumu who are spending several hours a day online. we also met with titus parents to see how his behavior is affecting his family. but is there a way to treat this is ease we asked dr seuss to he who works at the 1st clinic in japan devoted to gaming disorder. title kobayashi lives outside talk you we asked him to describe
11:23 pm
a typical day in his life. how to take on a cruise ship what i did. to the eyes. of my course they did. it for me this is you. know has shown up the smile on you tube. did not they take we sounded. quite good this is still the letter took us to. mark. my genuine or futile effort that. sounded so good that i'm going. to go to one step no longer tokoyo him up so that $100.00 still. just talk. with your step. almost without the need to take this heart a bit harder than most but i hope you know because i see. so
11:24 pm
no going to the park with your friends to get pulled over to. do. this you know. you're going to need it so. tight just parents have been increasingly concerned about their son and decided to visit the clinic in search of help what in his behavior makes you think that he could be addicted. now this is. day he thought. he. would be a. good team much day to. day. what he's already in you know did you get on the way to thank them. for the name. when you do know don't most of the plenty out on the god people being to do so then.
11:25 pm
why don't we have pushed their money that they could have. through being too sneaky most ok when you say his priorities change before starting to game now what did he was he more friendly did he like to go out what changed exactly most of them up could only describe. as a look at the ski generates the being. not able to minute by minute by minute car and ideas so do you buy them accordingly the more you hear. it. the. homework this is a pretty. good. book do you know what. more could someone that's. the thing the. games are a lot of pictures
11:26 pm
a lot of sounds did you notice that it's affecting his character i see. nobody i didn't know most you do your no. one who you know that must have. seen it. you know more number 100. 30. more talk of the scooter dog pushing it on under yeah they move more. money up to no snit over tango and. the more it's not. a union they. don't need to call you know it's the most when you went to the session did you come out thinking that your son is a game addict. an all. male keep their.
11:27 pm
here so when you are you might be a more you say through so. much school make the game when he is always sure see type. get out it might there may not work. out about his unit. i could immediately come out of that but we must at this point. tell us more about his gaming behavior and respond to his parents concerns. known when he. and the think. they are people. is. just. a
11:28 pm
computer. game or course a bit. more. posting game will only give a producer thank you well along. don't you prefer playing outside i mean doesn't he have friends. so that may not concern you thinks it's cool to. talk. to you know it's going to or you may. go. that's going to get. you know so little so. i was. just so. you think you're playing too much one last question do you think you're
11:29 pm
playing too much. just not the real don't want to know and i don't think. they were do you think about this conversation. here. but nor. could i put. it into you my. you're not going to. the keyboard of. the productive to this. day that you. don't hate me because you know. so that they can take.
11:30 pm
me if i don't do. the east force cafe in chief has 2 to 300 visitors a day on weekends even more come here to play. an average day say 3 hours but some are here for 24 hours. so sue me gucci is a doctor diction center the 1st clinic of its kind in japan. he tells us about some of the problems he has seen firsthand among young people addicted to video games the 1st thing i have to point out is the brain damage the
11:31 pm
in the past you know there are several papers reporting the. brain damage caused by you know gaming disorder and meaning the neuron our cells. were destroyed or damaged. you know in gaming and this is the probably here most important the significant findings but at the same time you know they are usually isolated from the soft side the and the stay at home for a long time and because of that you know some of them suffer from you know problems associated with in activity such as you know the low you know body things and low bone density. then do not eat regularly just the 11 time when in the day you know because you know they
11:32 pm
cannot eat they they have to participate in the only game and they cannot find the time to eat something you know. and the because of that you know the they sometimes lose their weight and suffer from malnutrition and so those kind of things if i try a school a school boy spends. they. clearly stoop to 3 hours on the computer no more gaming. and that number of hours could go all the way up to 16. on his days off we do you consider that child an addict this is called tolerance you know when we start to play games you know they are satisfied with playing only 2 of us but in the course of time you know they cannot be satisfied with just you know play for 2
11:33 pm
hours or so then they have to increase the number of games. and this is part of the this is the part of the cysts symptoms which is typical of addiction we cannot in a say where the he is addicted to gaming not by just looking at number was. games would you say that it is a source of concern and needs to be monitored because if at 12 years old. he or she prefers to stay at home no go out and have very little social life and play that it could develop into something much more severe in a few years or do you think it's just maybe. that age when you turn from child to pre-birth t. and you know every boy or girl or trouble that if we diagnose
11:34 pm
you make diagnosis of gaming disorder the patient needs to show at least a pretty fundamental or or can a characteristic symptoms you know one is a possible control i think you know if we play 16 hours you know you may say you may think that he loses you know control over gaming and the 2nd these the gaming is prioritize prioritize in life of course you know if you ask him what is the most important thing for you in your life he he will respond to you gaming gaming 1st and then the 3rd the 3rd or you know symptom is the you know to continue in cleese the gaming be here despite the veto by the problem he has there's another credit which is. because of gaming he suffers
11:35 pm
from severe functional impairment in school. and in the family and life so you've met many of such patients. behind that is there a deeper issue i mean sometimes from what i understand when you speak to drug addicts or alcoholics it is a way to to now maybe some deeper and deeper separates do you think gaming is the same thing or gaming is actually much more superficial as an addiction merely hooty creepy percent of. patients with gaming to soda are either junior were senior high school students. the ratio. or boys 2 girls is usually 88 to one or something and so they have
11:36 pm
a little limited experience you know in life so they usually do not have the deeper you know background you know why they become you know addicted to gaming and then when we see a patient with gaming a disorder home or wait with other mental disorders such as a d h d and you know the asperger syndrome we need to take care not only giving this of the but also you know other mental health disorders what is the success rate to get someone out of this addiction and how long is that process very good question. we have not conducted you know outcome study. so again to tell me any i could at the you know estimation but. when we see a patient with a gaming disorder we strongly recommend him or her to give up
11:37 pm
play games anymore if they agree to do that the usually their outcome is quite good but if they do not want to stop gaming completely and they want if they want to reduce the amount of hours and games the outcome is in the so good it isn't typically the problem of addiction whether it's alcohol drugs or now gaming is that you tell a person you need to stop and he's mentally maybe they know but they're not able to isn't that one of the core issues yes that's right but in the case of gambling or in the case of our core dependency to do my jury patients are taught they can understand the situation they are put in and they need they can understand why they have to stop drinking and stop in gambling in the so forth but in the case of you
11:38 pm
know schoolboy girls if they cannot understand that if we push too much they were drop out from a treatment so this is the very big issue for us and. we we have to think about the balance between you know how how do we push at the same time we need to you know avoid patiently. from. looking at us. she tried to secularize started gaming when he was in kindergarten he has effectively played his entire life and he sometimes can't find time to do anything else then membered your normal day how does it look like. you are there so.
11:39 pm
it's a good possible. game or so you know so you know. there is a mother needed and if you play every day a little bit of this in another clue on a disc in your mind. that they do operate in ok so what would be dished shortest amount. you play and what would be the longest. the one who took you more than paul whenever. he's using condoms are. just sitting of that desk for 20 hours. they get all moneys you can adjust it up to because you can son's you didn't go so you just moved to go to the bathroom or maybe to get a glass of water. listening and you do anything else do you work do you have study do you do anything else. she will toss in itis do you think the amount of time
11:40 pm
you spend gaming is good for you my equal daughter. and i don't know what's on. the. their game where you took this it was as you can that. you couldn't manage and i cannot them unless you feel happy. and what exactly do you like about the games. so guys you need to go to my uni and i don't. know we did or did i not done that then the can i come other still he shows you steve thomas you not done with us do you think that because of all this time you spend gaming you are missing out on other things in life. so you don't think that sometimes instead of playing you should be out with your friends being in the fresh
11:41 pm
air you should maybe be travelling you prefer to stay here and. most of this meeting of us kunal the party you need to. come in you couldn't and i cannot them begin that and what did your parents say. about it and your girlfriend well you all between them with that she doesn't prefer to go out with you she likes to wait for you here while you're playing. think you are more so no game way at the end of statistics medically doctors say that people who play as much as you do are somehow addicted do you feel that you are addicted. so or more today. you don't think that all of this could be negative for you. tonight or you can it's capable. of
11:42 pm
causing the data to. go home to use it up the. game that you seduce to as you know that. i don't play if you were to tell me. or tried to convince me to start gaming this scribe to me was it is. difficult to buy a business buddies and when. my studio muscles are going out you're going to go there so another party to look out. the door then when you see. the lesson of that other guy. in the game and. so as you speak of course accused me of what i spent 3 hours in front of a computer my eyes hurt my head is like this flashing you don't get that. what's getting some coming around i go many times that he needs to go that's also
11:43 pm
getting there what are you if you were to give advice to someone young who also loves gaming what would you say ma game. or boxing. but in cuticle of the country so the more listen that the book as he says with the air tomorrow it will. all stand there so no more fun or what he could there being you are being called game a game. the loneliness. has me took their cut and i'm so game of those you can think i need this but the challenges they're facing right was parents are hopeful they will be able to work with their son to make sure he can live a normal life. because.
11:44 pm

several times since the beginning of the conflict in libya that of course goes back to 2011 groups linked to al qaeda started to pour into the country from neighboring countries from mali in addition to the book of iran fighters from northern nigeria so we're going to talk to michael about this he's in london senior visiting fellow at the london school of economics michael as i sort of explain it all there it looks like became a farce or really is just it's in the wrong place all these fighters coming in from other areas unsettling the whole area and the different fund as it's boko haram it's al-qaeda or it's all these different groups yes they seem to be are the wrong place at this time there are a combination of fact this festival is sort of in its contribution to the global war on terror or. it's given terry treat to post a u.s. drone base and that in itself automatically has generated
11:56 pm
a backlash from that you had this to slam his forces that's point number one and then secondly the spillover of fights in nearby mali and the. also being is that. the g. 5 civilian force that is actually attack in jihad that forces it happen is that then that you have these forces then escape to a relatively easier place to do harbor and then that means that they actually escape to not in but can a fuss so and because of that they're fast also generated the said in that tax in booking office so in the north and now even eaten into the eastern territory close the border with togo and burning ok so that's interesting i want to go back to the point you made about the u.s. drone base because that's understandable that that would then make it a target but i doubt it's something that became a fire so suddenly going to change and say all right we won't have a base so what can be done to counter the counter the effect that that has.

11:59 pm
neighboring countries may also sort of contribute to military force to control sort of the jihadist attacks in these areas but i have to be agreed but i think at the moment the onus lies on the g. 5 civilian force to actually sort out this in the interim michael moore from the london school of economics always a pleasure talking to you thank you let's look at what's coming up for you on this news hour another escalation between hezbollah and israel along lebanon's border the details on that. also the british airways strike which grounds hundreds of flights pilots are demanding better pay and conditions we will look at the scale of disruption across the world and sport football legend diego maradona proves you can still attract a big crowd sonorous here with that and the rest of the sport a little later. brags that developments now in britain's queen elizabeth has approved a law which is blocking a no deal exit from the european union at the end of october prime minister johnson
