120000 of these displaced people and we're increasing our capacity to reach up to 210000 before the end of the year but the number keeps going up and. no the next step after feeding people is that we need to start to help them to take care of themselves and that is find them access to land most of them are farmers get access to that to the land with the local population get the new seeds and tools we're working with the u.n. food and agriculture organization on this and world food program together so that when the next harvest comes next year they won't be dependent on us anymore and then he even in the interim period they can do some planting do some periods of time there's some water around they can start some small business and start taking care of themselves here's what else is coming up for you on this news hour north korea fires missiles hours after offering to resume nuclear talks with the u.s.
we'll colombia's former fox rebel fighters accept calls to take up arms again. and in sport we'll find out of somalia's a football team can continue their unlikely run towards qualification for the 2022 world cup. a prominent member of sudan's ruling coalition is calling for a peace agreement and yemen and wants sudanese troops fighting there brought home calls in sudan for them to be withdrawn have grown louder as the number of casualties increases the saudis are also accused of recruiting sudanese mercenaries and child soldiers laura birdman they has the story. after 4 and a half years of war yeah a prominent member of sudan's ruling coalition is calling on the transitional government to bring sudanese troops home. is the middle of the we don't need the war to continue in yemen we want the talks to go on according to the plan prepared
by the united nations i think sudan can play a role in this regard through giving momentum to its allies in the arab coalition there for the sake of a peaceful solution that will guerin. the regular withdrawal of our forces without harming our relations with other countries. the decision to join the saudi led war against the rebels in yemen was made by former president omar al bashir was. the shares currently on trial in sudan after being ousted by the military in april following almost 30 years in power is also wanted by the international criminal court facing charges for crimes against humanity war crimes and genocide. the sheriff says thousands of sudanese troops to fight in yemen the saudis also recruited thousands. raise as well as child soldiers a fellow from brookings doha center says between 8014000 sudanese power military

mediated ceasefire talks between the warring sides a month old truce there has been frequently violated but the united nations says this is significant. it is an important step forward in establishing direct lines of communications between the parties and the and obviously or un colleagues. on the ground so it is definitely a step forward. the european commission says it's ready to make a fresh start in its relationship with the u.k. after brags that president elect. van de leon spoke in brussels on tuesday where she unveiled her new team she's nominated phil hogan to lead the future e.u. trade talks which could put him in charge of negotiations with the u.k. the bracks and we never want it but we respect decisions that are taken by our british friends by of the united kingdom. the brics it should it happen is not the
end of something but it's the beginning of a future relationship and i want these relationship as it has been in the past in the future to be a good relationship when we're british prime minister barak's johnson and his cabinet are desperately searching for a way to navigate out of the break regs that impasse have just been meeting after a night of high drama in parliament johnson's push for an early election was thrown out before parliament was suspended for 5 weeks lawrence lee has all the details from london. mr speaker the lord's will also rise by how much is this commission to declare to declare how well it said to ask how $55.00 this is and so also declared the prior great hall opens the presence of this honorable house really no. choice what the outside world makes of the
british parliament shutting down for 5 weeks when the u.k. is going through the biggest political crisis since world war 2 is anyone's guess it's most certainly less than popular among the opposition and peace and the speaker of the house of commons this is not however a normal part of geisha it is not difficult it is not standard it's one of the longest for decades and it represents not just in the minds of many colleagues but huge numbers of people outside and active executives. as conservatives file doubts they were heckled by opposition m.p.'s who refused to leave they tried to stop the speak of from leaving and then sign protest songs in the chamber you. have to demonstrate only too clearly the collapse of traditional politics here government ministers of offered
no explanation of the deal they are seeking if there is such a deal less aching let alone any work type proposals presented to parliament the scrutiny no wonder they are so keen to baroque so early to avoid any scrutiny of doing the right $293.00 knows the left $46.00 boris johnson had lost his 60 votes in 6 days even fewer and p's casting their ballots for a sober election but had done well. he tried it the 1st time and so while the opposition accused him of cowardice for suspending parliament he accused them of the same thing they're right on the bill james remove his cronies together with those other opposition parties have been trying to disguise their proposed risk cowardice by coming up with ever more rangers excuses for joining in on an election until the end of october and perhaps november when hell freezes over. in
media the delay and procrastination that has become the hallmarks of the opposition before parliament was put into this induced coma the opposition was able to force boris johnson in civil corner he is now going to have to seek some sort of compromise with the european union if the u.k. is to leave the block by the end of october as he insists must happen but that in turn will infuriate the most pro breck's it right wing of the party and will inevitably cost them seats whenever the national election happens with his cabinet holding its regular meeting these calculations will all be in play rumors abound of the potential for more resignations from the ruling party as johnson's many critics say his grip over bricks it becomes ever weaker lawrence lee al-jazeera london. was sweden's prime minister when it joined the e.u.
and is now the co-chair of the european council on foreign relations he says the e.u. is running out of patience with the u.k. . there's certainly a high degree of frustration and also sense that we we have important things to do in europe. we can't be sort of preoccupied with this it breaks it mess for ever and the brits simply have to make up their mind they do have a domestic political price is that as fair amount of understanding of that there's a hope that they will get out of the it in some sort of orderly and decent and democratic shape. but clearly there's an understanding that this can't drag on forever there has to be a resolution of the british political crisis but it has to be done by the bit sometimes the who clearly doesn't want to leave with the u.k. you doesn't want the kid leave the door closed don't want he doesn't want the u.k. to leave without a deed and that is why that was negotiation for i think to yes it does produce
a deed which is that whether or your own son can make some sort of that yassmin disposition to make it possible to have some sort of. adjustment in the political declaration of something like that like that that makes it possible for him to get into the house of commons that remains to be seen. as you said he seems to be playing with ideas of sort of moving the potential boundary from somewhere on the island of ireland to in the irish sea that's technically a feasible proposition but where dates politically ready feasible that of course remains to be seen. to hong kong where protesters have used a football match against iran to highlight because demonstrators gathered outside the world cup qualifier and sang a protest song of china's national anthem iran had requested the game be moved to a neutral ground because millions of people have been taking part in anti-government demonstrations since april after the controversial extradition bill
sponsored the protest so john brown has more from hong kong. where this is a very highly politically charged they would fit hong kong there was found in sexy here 10 can stadium on sunday night and the balance of course is going to the reasons when i hear a news actually wanted to change it then you have this match to somewhere outside a home run now the head of this game between hong kong and iran the authorities in hong kong had appealed to fans not to insult china's national anthem when it's played before the start of the magic which of course is something that traditionally happens here at home in the games like this but in recent months in so think the chinese national you know has become a tactic a strategy of these protesters because they're not just fans of football they're also fans of new democracy and as we found out before the game this is an issue which is also dividing them tell me will you will you will you sing the chinese
national anthem tonight why live by what i want to say it is not my country's oh. so you won't know. no you know i don't see much that. i think that that we are seeing so it's not suitable for me the. utilities to the end of the chinese national anthem is now playing inside the stadium and people both inside and outside of the stadium doing very loudly this is when i think of movies and depression the interchange so unique that would make it an offense to anyone to instruct the next in action with the aim of up to 6000 u.s. trainers who are up to 3 years in jail. also hong kong's leader is warning the united states not to interfere with her government's response to the ongoing protest movement carolines also pleaded for an end to the violence she says she is
committed to engaging with the protesters the offer of for actions not just the formal withdrawal of the bill is not directly to stop these protests on the violence that is really to extend. my sincerity to start a dialogue with the people saw in our view violence should be stopped for the benefit of hong kong but going forward to mend the rift in society and to bring back peace then we are very willing to engage people directly in a dialogue north korea has fired 2 missiles hours after offering to resume denuclearization talks with the us south korean commanders say they landed in the sea off the east coast of the korean peninsula the latest misawa test recently by the north on the go between donald trump and kim jong il own
a deadlocked since the failure of the 2nd summit in vietnam in february more from rob mcbride to in seoul. this seems to be a continuation of the missile launches that have continued now for a number of weeks seen as being north korea's anger to military exercises that have been taking place in south korea but those exercises ended last month it seems that north korea's missile testing has not and it does come just after a vice foreign minister from north korea had said that north korea is willing to re enter into negotiations with the united states probably later on this month and maybe at the sidelines of the u.n. general assembly so this could be a way of north korea trying to bolster its bargaining position ahead of those expectations talks north korea also likes to mark important anniversaries and we've just had the 71st anniversary of the founding of north korea we also know
that the north koreans know that short range missiles do not seem to bother the u.s. president donald trump he says that as long as there are no launches of much larger i.c.b.m.'s intercontinental ballistic missiles then the dialogue stays on track but of course with each missile launch north korea is improving its missile know how and that is of a concern to military chiefs here in south korea and also across the water in japan as this missile testing does appear to be continuing and still have you on this news are pakistan's foreign minister hits out of india's clampdown on kashmir with a kind of broader state of freedom of speech across the world. i'm natasha butler in paris where a new exhibition officer read glimpse into the final decades of francis bacon one of the 20th century's most important artists and sport an emotional homecoming for this baseball legend son mostly with the sport in the late.

in the 2nd of 2 special reports people in power examines the cool season possible consequences of homegrown summer of defiance on algae. 0. the latest news as it breaks the problem is that in many cases those fires get out of control with detailed coverage the protesters don't seem to be flagging and neither does the police's determination to suppress the movement from around the world most of these vehicles carry syrians fleeing from the south of the border and that influx caused a 2nd traffic jam in the only do over know that city of it there.

a dozen journalists there the real crackdown since mohammed bin solomon came into power along with xi jinping and china both of which have you know these leaders have really per side over a massive crackdown on the press and yet they are regularly at summits with world leaders so we'd like to see those countries that do respect press freedom and allow the free flow of information to pressure those countries to do more we'd also like to see that those countries that receive for example development assistance or other sort of assistance you know let's try to get them to improve the environment on the ground it's we're not never going to see either good human rights outcomes good governance good development outcomes without the free flow of information so you know i think these countries need to realize that they can do more that they can use their diplomatic tool box in a more effective way saying with press freedom in a turkish newspaper has published details of the moments leading up to the murder

uncertain future on saturday more than a 1000 residents were brought to florida on a cruise ship despite their own hardships those that made it a keen to offer assistance to those back home and start making some preparations to help sentence does relieve you thought. you know freeport is our neighboring island and that's where we got to go when emergencies happen and there are many so we got him a shot a good aid has been pouring in from the u.s. but some on board a ferry that left the bahamas on sunday were asked to disembark if they didn't have the right u.s. visas customs and border patrol officials blame the ferry company for not following procedures critics have called the move cruel but president trump says agents need to be cautious we have to be very careful everybody needs totally proper documentation i don't want to allow people that weren't supposed to be in the bahamas to come in to the united states including some very bad people 25 families
are now at this shelter in lake worth florida they weren't allowed inside because of the trauma they've been through but aid workers say the evacuees are resilient there is a real attitude of hope that i see in the shelters we're trying to make sure that we keep a positive attitude specially for the kids we have a timothy's for the kids to keep them active and try to not let it you know get to them that they're not home they're not in their homes when they would be with their families and trying to make the best of a very tough situation. even as they leave many awaiting to return and rebuild but with people still missing in communications poor news from the bahamas is a priority everyone here has what they need for now water food and a roof over their heads but what they really want is information the red cross tells us some of the evacuees left loved ones behind and they don't know whether they're alive or dead it's a chilling illustration of just how deadly hurricane dorian was amidst the confusion of a humanitarian disaster there have been so moving scenes this family found each
other in fort lauderdale for many others the agonizing wait for news of their loved ones goes on at a gala crawl jazeera lake worth florida. but breaking news and the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has said he intends to an excess the jordan valley in the occupied west bank if he is to stay in power after the coming election we've got harry force in west jerusalem to talk us through this. very well please do that action explain exactly where we're talking about the jordan valley. otome of that the jordan valley being the area alongside the jordanian border to the very east of the west bank kid occupies about 30 percent of the occupied west bank most of it is under israeli military control already as area c. as it's designated has some 65000 palestinians living there and also
there are about 37 illegal israeli settlements in that area as well what's interesting about the statement though is that it's not really as was sold just minutes before netanyahu went to the podium to make it already there were indications this was going to be a very political statement in the final week of the election campaign as he's desperately trying to get more and more right wing votes for his likud ruling party but there had been reports that as well as that the he would announce the annexation of the jordan or the jordan valley and that he would announce some kind of american green light some sort of approval from the trumpet ministration even though for now it is delaying the release of the trump plan he didn't do that instead he merely asked for a mandate from the israeli people said that he was the man that needed to be in charge of the israeli government after the election in advance of the trump peace
plan coming out that. pete and benny gantz the leaders of the main opposition party they wouldn't be able to get it done and then he started to detail some of the the follow on effects of such a plan but it is just a plan and he has made similar such promises in the past before previous elections indeed before the last election in april that ended with coalition talks breaking down so dramatically and netanyahu calling for another election in a couple of interviews he talked about extent. israeli sovereignty 2 israeli settlements illegal settlements in the occupied west bank even mentioned a couple by name and one of the main israeli political reporters in this in this country until further was tweeting just before this announcement saying that you have to remember that in the coalition talks that that happened after that election he rode back or didn't give any ironclad commitment so there is some skepticism
about all this from the israeli media indeed when it was clear just how much of an electoral statement this was when that became clear a lot of the channels moved away from him in mid speech and started in a fairly mocking tone talking about here's another supposedly dramatic statement from measurement and you know so we have to see it in that light interesting stuff ok thank you harry for still in west jerusalem with that update now rebel fighters in colombia who laid down their weapons say they remain committed to peace despite their form of commanders urging them to rearm the commanders accuse government leaders of betraying the paint steel which ended the long civil war 3 years ago at a son that he has been meeting some of the rebel fighters in the mobilisation camps . deep in the. a new town is born graffiti on the walls still tell stories of rebellion but former fire fighters are now working hard to

has not fulfilled its obligations with the agreement they don't have the political will to implement the deal and i find it mind boggling that the government of the present duke offers a $1000000.00 for information on the dissidents when it would make more sense to use that money for reintegration united nations figures show that just 10 per cent of former fighters have so far received credit for farming or other development projects and the government also announced it was investing almost $5000000.00 u.s. dollars to buy land for those projects but none has been bought since. delays in the implementation of the peace deal have been pounded by worse a big security could be 136 former fighters have been killed by other groups still operating. yet they say it's not time for despair. despite all the difficulties we remain firm and peace we want to demonstrate to
colombia and the world that we are keeping our word. the peace process has its problems but there is still time to save it judging by the determination shown here . sun is a total sport the last time we had of course of a football the coach was shouting a lot. more of. course they were getting ready for the biggest mind to end this old history as a football nation the team on and 15 the game unbeaten run and and with a good chance of qualifying a for the 1st major tournament well later this tuesday kosovo take on well cup 75 this england in the european championship qualifier kosovo's national team only gained official recognition 3 years ago their 2nd in group a behind england having beaten the czech republic 21 in their last game. we are here against one of the best team in the world. in my
