a diplomatic breakthrough in the yemen where war has pushed the country to stop facia and we'll go live in north of the country where people are trying to survive by eating leaves. unforgettable welcome to the program. british prime minister theresa may faces one of the most challenging days of her political career she's seeking cabinet backing for high draft deals for the u.k.'s departure from the european union but senior ministers and britain's parliament are deeply divided and last night still beats between the government and brussels he's facing criticism the prime minister faced m.p.'s in a rowdy parliamentary question and answer session and the leader of the oppositions was just one of the voices challenging mrs may over the do. you know the usually breaks it negotiates
5:02 pm
a report to be told the twenty seven european ambassadors the u.k. must align their rules but the e.u. will retrain all the controls is that a fair summary of the prime minister's deal prime minister can i say to the right honorable gentleman as i have said all along throughout these negotiations what we are doing is negotiation a good deal for the united kingdom we're going to see a. really good seating a deal that delivers on the face of the british people takes but control of our money towards the waters that he shows we leave the common fisheries policy we need a customs union we need to come in like a cultural policy we preach that we protect jobs we protect security and we protect the integrity of the united kingdom. and give over the dollars they called research in london welcome nicolle so we have the opposition leader jeremy corbin accusing the prime minister of caving in to brussels what did we learn from mrs may in parliament today. well up next it wasn't
5:03 pm
a dominating discussion old zotero colvin and some author and peace had a few questions about it and manish to heat up the discussion in the room as we just soul jeremy coleman also wanted to know if that was progress on new trade deals for the u.k. or whether there would be any possibility of you need a lecture lead to withdraw from any possible backstop agreements at the irish border that also drew up another question but i know the m.p. who wanted to know it out of the northern northern island would get special treatment due to this new drop that nobody really has seen yet if that were to be the same for scotland so if they would get any benefits from it many more questions will come at the prime minister she didn't answer these on so very clearly now bosh wants the details of the trough to really known then i guess they will ask more about what ifs and buts and also about that they will probably ask about it once
5:04 pm
they know what the cabinet meeting is bringing now so the whole country including the prime minister's old policy is incredibly divided on this issue did mrs may look like she has her party behind though is not another battle she has to fight but it has been a very bumpy year for three some may as repeatedly some of the party members within the conservative party have shown that they don't really support we remember two very prominent examples x. for his secretary boris johnson walked out of the cabinet just in sama also david davies. to throw that for the u.k. walked out on her just because they didn't like the ideas that she had about how breaks it should be done and these are only two examples as it is in a division within her own party and each time it is some sort of rebellion from her own rose it will be more and more difficult for the prime is actually to game up
5:05 pm
against them. all right nicole reese in london thank you so much. thank you. just follow the directions to this deal that we still haven't actually seen yet let's get more on the british government reaction from doctors are honest alex forrest whites and welcome alex so what has been happening behind the scenes since the announcement of the deal was made last night well two reason mays currently holed up in downing street with company ministers trying to thrash out an agreement with them she has already had one to one meetings with all of them last night and this morning because there are some key bricks it is within her own cabinet within those own ministers who are very pro bricks that they do not want to compromise that is the possibility that we could see some resignations off to this meeting today we have the international development secretary penny morton who we know is very pro brits in concert and we have estimates based the work and pensions
5:06 pm
secretary so we are now just waiting to see whether the cabinet is behind her or whether some may well quit now that the biggest stumbling block in this process has been what to do about the border between northern ireland which is obviously part of the u.k. and the republic of ireland which is a separate country and will remain in the u. we don't know the full details of the deal but what have we learned about visits you know on this well obviously they're trying to avoid a hard border between the two and it looks like the way around this is to keep the whole of the u.k. in a temporary customs union and to try to make sure that northern ireland has to agree to certain regulations of the use now this is it worrying to those unionist m.p.'s there are ten d. u.p.a. m.p.'s within northern ireland to approaching up to reason may's minority government they have made it very clear that they are not happy if they are treated
5:07 pm
differently from the rest of the u.k. and they are concerned that this temporary arrangement may last for a very long time and they have a lot of support within. those bricks it is the jacob riis logs and all those who are also very concerned about it and they have expressed that already on the other hand island itself the republic of ireland the prime minister that has has come as trying to reach out to those unionists today. has promised that dublin will respect the territorial integrity of the u.k. but whether that will be enough to secure agreement from those unionist m.p.'s remains to be seen ok so kind of to the left of the cottage to the right if mrs may defies the odds and gets ministers to back this deal what's next well first of all it goes to an emergency summit within the e.u. and it looks like that's going to be held on the twenty fifth of november then it goes to parliament in westminster and that is the big problem we've already had jeremy corbin's labor party that's the main opposition party in the case are not
5:08 pm
likely to support this deal she has those bricks a tear m.p.'s who hate any compromise the former foreign secretary boris johnson i've already mentioned jacob three small the form of bricks that secretary david de fit david davis plus there are those m.p.'s who do not want to see bricks it will i think it's going to be very difficult for to raise the may and of course the clock is ticking i think for slicing thank you so much we'll take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world because political crisis has intensified after lawmakers voted out the country's newly appointed prime minister the decision was arrived at during a heated session and followed a ruling by the country's top court to suspend a presidential order to dissolve parliament and hold fresh elections rajapaksa was appointed prime minister last month after the president removed its pretty fast.
5:09 pm
your spies president mike pence has told been mass leader there is no excuse for the violence that has caused hundreds of thousands of ranger to flee the country depends met suchi on the sidelines of a regional summit where he also pressed for the release of two jailed voices journalists. firefighters in california have been battling a new flare up in a huge fog burning outside los angeles the blaze centers on ventura county it's one of the largest to hit something california in recent memory weeks forty eight people have been confirmed dead in fires across the state exact number of missing is unclear. israel's defense minister avigdor lieberman has resigned over the latest ceasefire with the palestinian militant group hamas the truce was agreed to and a deadly escalation in cross border violence that followed an israeli writing gaza at least eight palestinians were killed in fighting over the weekend after dawn leader wood was one of the most hawkish members of the israeli government and had
5:10 pm
demanded a much tougher response to palestinian rocket fire. much more loss of the cease fire combined with a deal with hamas is a surrender to terror. there's no other way of defining it no other meaning but a surrender to terror. mr lieberman's resignation has rocked israeli politics and now there are doubts about whether the ceasefire itself will hold the correspondent in jerusalem is time your credit or welcome time we're just hearing from gaza that a man has been killed by israeli fire obviously since these things was announced what more can you tell us. well palestinian house officials are saying it's a twenty year old man he is a fisherman and some conflicting reports whether you was killed at sea near the
5:11 pm
fence to israel the israeli army says he was approaching the fence music keen this is near the beach and despite giving out warning shots as i said he was being shot as according to their rules off and gauge him and it doesn't seem at the moment at least that this would derail this. tense calm you have to say of course it's always tends in a few days off to what happened in the past couple of days but hamas and other militant groups at the moment a more preoccupied of saying that they having set new rules of engagement they are seeing this also as a victory having fired over four hundred rockets into israeli communities and they even go as far as saying that they brought down the defense minister and possibly even the cabinets of course this is deflecting a bit from their own question also under a lot of criticism in gaza what this latest round of escalation has brought for the people in gaza to tell us more about either door leave and this departing defense
5:12 pm
minister who described this latest ceasefire with hamas as a surrender to terror. well he is the head of the israeli between a party they have five or heads five seized in this coalition government he was known as a very hawkish very populous an extremist politician is very right wing views and he was not the classic defense minister because his security. credentials were not so impressive as you usually would expect so it was morsi when he was appointed two and a half years ago as a political appointment by a crimes and yahoo and some people say no in any case he was never this strong because security is always in the hands of at prime minister next and now netanyahu so what you know commentators here of pointing out is that he's trying to reposition himself and himself has called now for it for early elections for new elections and he wants to get back to his hardline stance ok so that brings us to
5:13 pm
the big question now where where i don't lieberman's resignation leaves benyamin netanyahu his coalition government. well i mean he basically dropped a bombshell on netanyahu it leaves netanyahu very vulnerable you know it's now it's a coalition government with very many small parties in israel so he's leaving him now with a one seat majority sixty one seats out of one hundred and twenty and the street we understand another and all eyes are now in another part to his home party another next national grid it's just and very settler friendly party and its leader. bennett who has kind of given an ultimatum to netanyahu saying i want to be the next defense minister because now netanyahu has that i'm holding this post so myself he's not only the prime minister you is also already foreign minister and are you with the also defense minister left that has says we want to get this part
5:14 pm
for you and then set to discuss this within the party and if you what are you doing and then we'll make a decision if they make the decision to leave the coalition. for. it comes not and . i guess i was last in line to the time you come in jerusalem but we got the gist thank you very much for that. if you want to yemen that report sat in the country saudi backed army has ordered its forces to suspend an offensive on the rebel held port city of data this after the united nations called for peace talks with iran backed factions fighting in the civil war the data is crucial to supplying millions of starving yemenis with that shipments of food and other aid since the battle for the port began and those shipments have slowed things in what the u.n. says is the world's worst humanitarian crisis i was on the stand still travels to the northern region of a job where people are so desperate for food every salted to eating leaves.

5:23 pm
wake up call that stable growth is by no means a given. exports were down and imports up in the third quarter that's trouble for an economy built on strong exports a major part of the problem has been a bottleneck in car deliveries by german automakers the result of new more rigorous emissions rules but there are other issues political ones global trade disputes are threatening the bottom lines of german companies both b.m.w. and dime were cited trade uncertainty in their latest earnings reports breaks it is also threatening a chunk of german business with the u.k. analysts still believe the german economy will grow this year but the news figures show that the country's political stability and low unemployment with a weak euro currency don't guarantee a strong economy like few other nations the german economy relies on overseas consumption at a time of growing uncertainty it only makes sense that it's feeling the pinch. so the economy here contracting for the first time in years that doesn't come as

a negative effect on italian savings and is mostly due to an internal political battle between the two majority parties the league and the five star movement. financial markets in italy fell by over one percent at the wednesday opening a negative reaction to the government's announcement of the night before. the italian cabinet plans to raise cash through the sale of secondary real estate which officials say would reduce italy stubbornly high public debt. it's currently around one hundred thirty percent of g.d.p. far above the e.u. limit of sixty percent and the second highest in europe after greece. that's all your business have a full update for you in the next hour thoughts time phil thank you just before we go some good news for sports fans in ballin as the city has been awarded the right to host the special olympics and twenty twenty three bid organizers in the capital
