had been scheduled for today the day after october 1st and that is there at the court but then also here in front of the school were expecting a body the kind of represents a lot of the protesters groups that they're going to hold a press conference here in just a couple of hours most likely talking about the shooting victim himself and what transpired yesterday but you know we heard some chatter in these social media mechanisms the protesters used to communicate that there could be other events but so far it's been focused on the courtroom and here in front of the school scott high level the latest from hong kong thank you. now u.s. president donald trump has denounced an impeachment investigation against him as a coup a war of words between the house democrats and a key member of his cabinet has a ruptured in washington as more witnesses are being called to testify secretary of state mike pump a push back against an order for 5 of his officials to appear before congress he says it's an attempt to bully and intimidate the state department stuff the

impeach meant it's a coup startling language coming from a sitting u.s. president and tweeted moments after a new headline broken u.s. media that being that yet another inspector general an insider from the federal government was willing to speak to congress this would be the inspector general of the state department who reportedly will deliver an urgent briefing to congressional staff on wednesday this all comes as the house intelligence panel prepares to interview 5 current and former state department employees they include the former ambassador to ukraine merida avan of it who is implicated in the phone call between trump and president zelinsky of ukraine trump on that phone call said that the former ambassador was bad news she reportedly was not on board his administration's attempts to convince ukraine to launch an investigation into
trump's domestic political rivals. is scheduled to testify on october 11th but before that the panel will hear from was the former ukrainian envoy who resigned from that post last week just as the pietschmann inquiry had been launched he reportedly went to ukraine following the phone call between trump and the lewinsky to control the damage from that phone call volcker is scheduled to give his deposition before congress on thursday. now elections are to be held in separatists controlled eastern ukraine paving the way for talks of moscow it's the latest peace move government led by president. last month's mass prisoner exchange with russia by tory gates and he has this report. protesters outside the ukrainian president's office in the capital kiev they're angry about an agreement with kremlin backed separatists in eastern ukraine which allows for elections a little speech
a territory they say it amounts to capitulation to russia. the war has been going on in ukraine as a secure almost 5 years because ukrainian soldiers die there should be a blood and volunteers provide aid to the community cares about ukrainian independence and the in one day all of these if it's a broken by a statement of capitulation by the presidential office the agreement between the ukrainian government kremlin backed separatists russia and european monitors was signed in the belorussian capital minsk separatist negotiators say it's an important 1st step to end the fighting between separatists and ukrainian government forces the began after russian forces seized an annex the crimean peninsula from ukraine in 2014. it's a starting point where we begin the process of creating the conditions for political resettlement 1st of all means
a change in the ukrainian constitution and the adoption of a special law about the election. at least 13000 people have been killed in fighting over the last 5 years ukraine's with a day elected president polygamy is a lengthy wants to revive peace negotiations with russia but analysts say this stalemate consolidate demands by separatists the greater autonomy so you really. free and fair elections. under current conditions and that's exactly what moscow wants it wants to use this process with what it considers a weak ukrainian president who's growing more and more isolated from international partners in the west. manage at a very decisive moment and solidify the crime again from ground 0 as cases elections will be held only when ukraine regains control of all its borders with russia sale was niche i need well this means to journalists and members of the audience that there will be no election under the gun and they can't be any more
suitable but these protest as big as the lenski has made too many concessions already and a warning that russia will be a tough negotiating partner in any future talks to end fighting in eastern ukraine to victoria gate and be out there on capitol hill. and still ahead and. the clock is ticking but the problem of the irish border and brags it is far from resolved. close to collapse the long long play share that's melting at an alarming rate. hello there still staying very warm and pretty dry across much of the southeast of the united states then we've got this line of cloud and this is bringing with it some thunderstorms severe at times and this is the dividing line really between the
very warm dry as and then this much cooler behind as you can see quite a line of showers and thunderstorms right there were towards the northeast into new york where we have seen in the last couple days and we will continue to see is a slight warmer into southern canada and also across northern sections of the united states that rain with the snow working its way east. that is another winter storm heading to british columbia the time it is not too bad. the cool in new york at 19 and a very well 35 celsius there in atlanta and then let's head to south into the caribbean widespread and thunderstorms really across much of the region and of course we've seen some very heavy amounts of rain into southern and western mexico courtesy of what was tropical storm nada now look at this this is a bridge that collapsed under all that water this is in vienna and obviously this is the damage that those rains can do but the good news is the rain is actually easing out of the picture we will see more across central america and fairly widespread particular cross much of cuba but wednesday and thursday it isn't
improving page. one in 3 brazilian women is a victim of domestic abuse it seems every day. and it just becomes a statistic that some of broken away from the cycle of violence it's not easy to leave you have to ask. other spot overs to turn the lives around i call the straw hat program the dream program my life changed after the course it gave me opportunities for my business women make change 0.
i love area watching i've been there and has reminded her top stories this hour and hong kong hundreds of people have gathered outside the school attended by the teenagers shot by police during protests on tuesday he was in critical condition but has since stabilised it's the 1st time a lot of bullet has been fired at a protester and this year some arrest. us president donald trump has denounced the impeachment investigation against him as a coup his secretary of state mike pump aoe has called an order for 5 of its officials to appear before congress bullying the chairman of 3 of the investigating house committees say any obstructions. will be considered illegal. and separatists in the east of ukraine have signs accords with the country's government and russia and a move that could bring peace in the region a step closer. it's one year since the journalist jamal khashoggi entered
saudi arabia's consulate in istanbul to obtain documents for us upcoming marriage he never came out and rest occasions by turkish officials and decay but khashoggi was killed and dismembered by a saudi hit squad saudi crown prince mohammed bin salam says he takes responsibility but denies ordering the killing. fiance is demanding answers from riyadh and the crown's prince monley that. it is meaningful that this was broadcast close to the october 2nd date it sounds to me like it was something that was said to weaken or listen public pressure secondly if that is not the case and it was carried out under the crown prince's responsibility then we would have the right to ask him about the details then why was jamal killed and why has the public not been informed about the death until now i am talking about the details for instance we don't know where the body is his funeral prayers have not been performed there is
no b.-real if he carries full responsibility then i believe we should be able to ask these questions in that case mohamed bin so munch should give an answer. well geez case has sent ripples throughout u.s. politics and put washington and we are close relations in question i've had a has this report from washington. a gathering on capitol hill to remember. the event arranged by the project on middle east i'm ocracy the same organization that hosted the journalist's last public appearance in the u.s. before he traveled to turkey and his death. just over a year ago he was full of praise for the saudi crown prince crown prince thank you very much the day before muhammad when solomon had paid a visit to the white house a slight smile on his face as president trump outlined the financial importance of the saudi relationship some of the things that have been approved and are currently
under construction and will be delivered to certain area very soon but many in congress had a different view on the value of the relationship expressing deep concern about the saudi war in yemen there was always deep tension between congress and the white house on the issue of saudi arabia the war in yemen just one of the reasons stretching back to the involvement of saudi nationals in the $911.00 attacks the murder of u.s. resident jamal khashoggi added yet another layer to congressional theory this intensified even further after the cia chief briefed congress on the matter angering even the president's most loyal supporters i want to make sure that saudi arabia is put on notice that business as usual has come to an end for me the president though insisted the saudi relationship would be maintained dismissing questions about the crown prince's involvement as irrelevant maybe he did and maybe
he didn't writes a president this is a minute in the months that followed congress passed legislation opposing arms sales to saudi arabia demanding the withdrawal of u.s. forces supporting the war in yemen and insisting the administration a step to accountability for jamal khashoggi is murder. the bulls the smiths by presidential veto and a year after jamal khashoggi death congregational angus' still burns we're gaining bipartisan support here in congress for stronger and stronger action this is this issue is not going away the over rocking reality though that the executive will continue to defy congress from the solve the issue until it is changed either through the ballot box or by a successful impeachment trial of the president before the senate my kind of al-jazeera washington north korea's far 2 missiles off its east coast towards japan just hours after saying it would resume nuclear talks with the u.s.

be necessarily involves new infrastructure his comments have been met with concern in the anger in arlon which is against returning to a hard border or a challenge says this report from the conservative party conference in manchester. it's boris johnson thinking of bringing customs checkpoints back to the island of ireland it's what dublin fears after an irish broadcaster said it had seen leaks brecht's proposals sent by london to the e.u. and the british prime minister spent cheese day morning at the conservative conference in manchester denying it it's of course early days and we're working very hard to get a deal over the line i think the references that i've heard a plan over to papers don't actually relate to what we are going to table i think there's some. confusion about what's being what's being reported but yeah this is going to be. a difficult negotiation what breaks it means for the irish
border is still as foggy as the landscape itself to preserve northern islands delicate $998.00 peace deal its border with the republic of ireland must be kept open and free of physical infrastructure but after bret's it this will be the u.k.'s only land front here with the european union so hardening of the border seems inevitable solving this conundrum has eluded everyone so far boris johnson's predecessor to reason may and the e.u. agreed the backstop a fudge of sorts there would keep the whole of the u.k. inside the e.u. customs zone after bret's it until a proper solution could be worked out but boris johnson says he's ditching the backstop for hard it's never been a clean enough break. the government is about to send europe its final ideas for whatever will replace the backstop but brussels doesn't like what it's seen thus
far we have received by now and for documents from the u.k. as of last tuesday we have not received any proposals from the united kingdom that need or the object as a backstop as we have been retreating and demanding some analysts think the prime minister knows it's probably futile or since it has to square a circle get a deal the e.u. will approve of which will get through parliament at the moment that looks all but impossible so it's hard not to believe that actually in number 10 what they're gaming is a situation as to how best to fail to get a deal to go to the electorate to look convincingly as if you tried your best. parliament requires boris johnson to ask europe for a brakes if extension if he can't get a deal he says he'd rather be dead in a ditch than do so but he still won't explain in any detail how he can avoid it rory chalons manchester. experts say a section of a rapidly melting glacier on the italian side of blank could break off in the
coming days italian authorities have closed to road and banned hikers from the area fearing the collapse of a much bigger chunk the glaciers instability has been blamed on employment change and high temperatures over the summer months from plumpton long natasha butler has this report. the mall paul martin range is the highest in europe jutting dramatically into the sky on its southern slopes in italy is the plot of past year glazier for as long as anyone here can remember the vast expanse of slow moving ice has been part of the landscape but that could soon change scientists say the glacier is melting at an alarming rate because of climate change and could collapse the thing that is happening is that the movement of the of part of the front of the glacier is much faster than the rest of the glacier and this means that we have a sector of the glacier that could train. laps or part of it the
section at risk is the equivalent in volume of $100.00 lympics swimming pools below it a valley popular with tourists if part of the glazier was to break away would cause a huge avalanche of snow ice and rock the wooden danger anyone using this road that is why the local mayor is taking no chances he has closed this road and walkers and hikers are not allowed to access any of the mountain huts in this area the mayor says the shrinking glazier shows how climate change is transforming the region. this is evidence of global warming we have higher temperatures in the summer and winter now so our mountains are in crisis our glass is a diminishing we must take responsibility and stop this as well chris and he lives in parts of our glasses with some tories staying away livelihoods are also it risk . and i really hope the outbreak so soon so it's over
because it's hard for me to work i make cheese but there's no want to buy it. how long the plough past you place you can remain intact is unclear but scientists say its case is far from unique nearly all of the ranges glaces all shrinking faster because of climate change what once seemed able to withstand the pressures of time is now very visibly fragile natasha al-jazeera italy. you're watching out is there and these are the top stories and hong kong hundreds have gathered outside the school attended by the teenager shot by police during protests on tuesday he was in a critical condition but tests and stabilised it was the 1st time a live bullet has been fired at a protester in this year's unrest mascot huyler's in hong kong with one that no
