10:02 am
south asia. in nepal the off the moth of mess floods and deadly landslides for the displaced there's more rain to come. nearby in bangladesh it's the same story dangerous flooding and mudslides. and for the hinge of refugees from neighboring mine the rain and landslides have washed away thousands of hillside shelters leaving several dead. and. we're having problems during this rainy season getting food the kids are suffering from disease the toilets and bathrooms are a problem the kids are not able to go to school and schools are falling into disrepair these are the problems we face almost a huge swathe of south asia used to monsoons is affected by the floods in india arun shell pradesh west bengal and assam with well over
10:03 am
a 1000000 people affected as well as livestock and crucially crops so say that the biggest loss has been the crops the sooners farmers began sowing irrigating the land with electric pumps and all then the rain began the rainfall has also been extreme 70 to 72 hours of continuous rainy the water level kept increasing and slowly submerge the farmlands nearly all of the crops have been destroyed. excited about climate change means more extreme weather and many a concern about how that's affecting our food systems this monsoon and a ruined harvest will be felt well beyond the end of the rainy season. we're going to be used. by delhi for us as we've heard there a 1000000 people displaced what are the authorities doing to help.
10:04 am
the authorities have deployed an immense effort because this is amanda knox and some rain of course it's been in some boss also made than it has been in the possible for example in india the national disaster of us forces force is one of the biggest as often management forces in the world and they have done an incredible job just earlier this year there was a massive cycle one cycle of funding and loss of life was was controlled and managed and it's in the ne the disaster was managed to even this time that have been security forces deployed in india as flood affected areas in the apollo as well but there are also massive challenges they have set up 247 helplines but communication towers have fallen in the highways have been blocked so it was so hard for security forces to deploy these efforts helicopters on her face this demand so there's actually a hope that water is going to seed once the reasons start easing off and they would be able to deploy more of an effort for rescue and to predation now we know that
10:05 am
flooding it happens every year in this part of the world how would you compare this year to previous years. but like us outside this seal in me there have been reports the flooding has been worse in some spots however all all over this particular region floods aren't and wilfred and the challenges in these reasons are way different from bill to borneo as in india such as flooding in mumbai the city of chennai now in these e.u. has them all mountainous areas and the flooding will be here because it's true a lot of loss of life because of these events lying alongside druids as well so also extreme climate change has extreme weather conditions have become more common that is an mit study that actually predicts that by the end of the century india would be 80 percent of the next ball produced and would be subject to extreme weather conditions so this is something that authorities have to prepare for even though the conference floods in mountainous regions they do have to deploy more
10:06 am
forces more efforts to make sure that people are not as badly affected as they are every year and look at let's look at that level of preparedness that you reference in bangladesh specifically because i mean they have some unique challenges with hundreds of thousands of refugees from neon mark how were they affected. well exactly the condition and bomb that this is different and there is the challenge also the refugee camp schools to a 1000000 people are in boxes bizarre and we saw in the report that there's also a massive impact because of the landslides that have been happening months licencee approach has taken several lives in those refugee camps water borne illnesses are also a serious challenge but even overall for bond that these the set of challenges are different from the region throughout discussing in india and nepal because 80 percent off bangladesh this flood plain and bangladesh has been at risk of being submerged and that this has been increasing europe on you know so the government
10:07 am
there even for the for the people outside of the camps even for bank of the issues and other the lying reasons have had to deploy additional forces in efforts to make sure that people are not affected but of course with the camps there is and additional because here are a 1000000 people who have already been displaced but also for us and they will have problems because of their temporary shelters being affected because of this massive flooding in the nation just while in delhi thank you. now to south africa where former president jacob zuma will face questions at a public inquiry today which will be broadcast live to millions across the country zuma is accused of overseeing a culture of corruption while in office including giving out state contracts and favors to allies he says that the allegations against him are politically motivated zuma was ousted by his own a.n.c. party last year. who is standing by outside of the courthouse in johannesburg and this is not the 1st time that the former president
10:08 am
has faced corruption charges what is at stake for him this time. so this is a commission of inquiry that is basically trying to understand and untangle this network of state capture that it has developed under the watch of jacob zuma so the commission has no power for prosecution but they will come up with a final report and then make their suggestions and possible that could possibly lead to prosecution so. what's the sake of the moment is mainly his reputation said rightly has been facing many corruption cases in the past already always came out with clean hands more or less that was never possible to prove anything to him so it's quite important here too to say what happened and to be his name and we have to mention to our viewers those are actually live pictures that you're looking at of jacob zuma himself appearing there you know and we know that he was not legally required to appear at the inquiry so why is he choosing to do so
10:09 am
so there's a lot of speculation about that here in south africa some people are saying because he really wants to put the facts on the table he wants to clear his name others are saying he might use the commission only as a platform to gain more popular support because remember he still has a huge following ship especially in his home region it is a surprise that there's no supporters here today actually we expected a lot of zuma supporters from his home region to come here today so let's see what will happen in the end of the day. how are people there in south africa responding to this case andrea. also we have those who are still supporting him but a lot of south african are quite odd rage that nothing much has happened since all these cases came out that no real evidence came up and that he was never really prosecuted remembered is not only just one incident this so many things that happened around zuma and steele where he was where he is said to be involved into
10:10 am
corrupt eales influential indian good family that has been in close contact with zuma over the years and that is actually the symbol for the state kept trying to say that at one point of time there were even involved in naming ministers in collaboration with zuma so this is something that really needs to be looked at and south africans are really excited to see what zuma will say about it and hopefully that the truth will finally come on the table to encrease in johannesburg thank you . know it's good to check out some other stories making news around the world hong kong authorities say that over 20 people were hospitalized after clashes between police and demonstrators on sunday the violence took place in a luxury mall many protesters fled when police began clearing the streets tens of thousands rallied over the weekend to protest the city's administration. and officials have confirmed that the current bowl the outbreak in the democratic republic of congo has spread to goa a major city food so the rwandan border more than $600.00 people have already died
10:11 am
in the 2nd biggest of all the outbreak on record. nearly $300.00 people have been arrested across france after algerian fans took to the streets to celebrate their country's fall of occasion for the africa cup of nations final in marsay which has a large algerian community police fired tear gas in order to break up the crowds. here in europe another attempt today in brussels to save the iran nuclear deal from a raveling germany france and britain have called for dialogue amid increased tension in the gulf region between iran and the united states a run on sunday said that it would restart talks if the us live sanctions and returns to the 2015 deal meanwhile iran has resumed enriching uranium beyond 3.5 percent that's a breach of the deal but what does it mean while for light water reactors 3.5 percent enriched uranium is needed in research or shipped to reactors the uranium has to be about 20 percent enriched weapons grade uranium is enrich to at least 85
10:12 am
percent the extent to which iran is permitted to enrich uranium is at the heart of the nuclear deal. on july 14th 2015 the international community uttered a joint sigh of relief the signing of the nuclear deal with the run was the beginning of a new chapter in relations with the country i think this is a sign of hope for the entire world and we all know that this is very much needed in this times as they stand if i'm going to reach an agreement that will make the middle east and the world a whole lot safer. and that. it is a step away from the specter of conflict and towards the possibility of peace. after almost a decade of negotiations iran agreed to get rid of 98 percent of its enrich the uranium and to reduce the number of centrifuges in exchange for relief from international economic sanctions the deal established a new relationship based on transparency but by no means trust albertine tower of
10:13 am
power of this it is a bilateral agreement for yet more powerful if the other signatories comply we will make sure we do the same i don't mind that zimmy how awful that all. in january 26th international sanctions on iran were lifted after the international atomic energy agency certify the country's compliance with the obligations established in the nuclear deal this time the side of relief came out of tehran the capital after all rich country driven to the brink of an almost total trade embargo in place since 2006. everything seemed to be going according to plan until donald trump came on to the stage he disliked the accord from the get go slamming the obama brokered deal was an important part of his campaign rhetoric once in power is followed through on his promise to pull out of the agreement we cannot prevent an
10:14 am
iranian nuclear bomb on to the decaying and rotten structure of the current agreement. therefore i am announcing today that the united states will withdraw from the iran nuclear deal since then the us has reintroduced all the previous nuclear related sanctions against iran along with other punitive measures as a tit for tat on doing in government announce that it will stop abiding by some of its commitments and requested that the remaining signatories restrictions on its banking and oil sector is as that failed to happen by its july 7th deadline iran announced it would breach another limits by raising the uranium enrichment further unraveling the landmark deal. for more i'm joined here in the studio by ben i'm ben taleb lou research fellow at the foundation for defense of democracy a u.s. foreign policy and national security think tank which opposed the 2015 deal and has
10:15 am
advised the champ and ministration welcome to the program thank you for joining us right here we have iran saying that it's ready for dialogue if sanctions are even just yesterday european powers are calling now also for talks reiterating that call shouldn't the u.s. and iran have back to the negotiating table. i think that's absolutely right i think the term of ministration despite putting massive financial economic and some would even say military pressure on these lama public is looking to get everyone to come back to the negotiating table to iran to set some of these different preconditions i shot a couple of drone has shot a drone out of the sky has fired on tankers using mines iran i think is trying to get the conditions ready for it to eventually come back to the table because i think it knows that it eventually will have to come back to the to what i mean just yesterday and we have to address this a british newspaper publishing these leaked memos from the former u.k. ambassador to washington essentially saying. he claims that trump pulled out of the nuclear deal with no plan on what to do next does the united states have
10:16 am
a plan well the plan seems to be to use exactly the same saying exactly the same tools that got us to the nuclear deal but again once you get to the table to broaden the issues that the administration has talked about these 12 points i'm sure that you know it's not just the nuclear issue it's the missile issue the military issue the terrorism issue basically what has made and sustained iran and international pariah for the past 40 years the qualms that we have again as an institution with the tracy nuclear deal is that it only addressed the nuclear threat and it didn't even do that quite well so now that there is an opportunity to regenerate the pressure to get iran to come back to the table why not broaden the issue set and see if you're on blink for that you know there's a saying you're throwing the baby out with the bathwater right what is your long term goal here is the government looking for regime change for example in iran there's actually been people in washington who've been talking about regime change but i think the trouble ministration remains committed to getting a bigger broader better deal i think even last summer as you saw some pretty fiery tweets exchanged between iranian and american officials the administration has been committed to getting grow honey did they go shooting people to talking with iran i
10:17 am
think it's been quite unprecedented to see such financial pressure coupled with a desire to talk if anything to iran may try to abuse this desire to talk to up its leverage and to make american want a deal more than it needs a deal why you're talking with this. better deal on what makes makes you so optimistic that you might get out because i mean we're seeing the situation currently on the ground and just in the past month we saw this plan for u.s. airstrikes on iran calling it off at the last minute and then the tensions are rising in a way that is concerning the international community how do you see the dangers in the region of destabilizing iran through this policy well the funny thing is that iran is the one destabilizing the region i think it's important to have the causal chain correct here iran is a trying i think trying to get leverage it knows that he can outlast this pressure policy for the 1st year of max pressure it thought it out last night from the administration now is trying to create leverage trying to up the ante do things that actually would make america again return to their goshen table and appear to
10:18 am
want to deal more than to iran needs a deal so yes iran does have these destabilizing policies which behooves us in the international community to come together not have this transatlantic divide that currently exists and attempt to present a united western front to deal with these issues diplomatically. what do you make of the european efforts because an e.u. foreign ministers are meeting in brussels later today and you've put them in a bit of a sticky position here haven't you well the europeans for the past few years before the u.s. pulled out of the nuclear deal defended the chase e.p.o. as if it was the best thing since sliced bread and now i think they're beginning to realize that yes missiles should have been included yes there are some flaws with the deal the sunset issues should have been addressed and in fact there was a 6 month period from january to may of 2800 where the europeans americans had a transatlantic dialogue about how to fix the deal that process unfortunately faltered but it's something that can be resurrected and if the europeans do want a diplomatic agreement to stem iran's nuclear program the americans want to have pressure to get iran to the table then there is space there to actually collaborate
10:19 am
and bridge that transatlantic gap the question is will the europeans turn a blind eye to iran's nuclear violations and continue to side with the world's foremost state sponsor of terrorism against their major western liberal international partner and of and tell him thank you so much for joining us with that view they finish it. now we turn to india where the national space agency has aborted a highly anticipated launch to the moon the decision to delay came less than an hour before blastoff citing a last minute quote technical snag found in the launch vehicle on board is a robotic rover meant to probe the moon's unexplored south pole if successful india would be just the 4th country to achieve a soft landing on the lunar surface a new launch date has not yet been confirmed. for more on india's lunar mission i'm joined now from delhi by raji rajagopal and she is a senior fellow and head of the nuclear and space policy initiative at the observer
10:20 am
research foundation which is an indian policy think tank thanks for joining us and welcome to the program what more do we know about this so-called technical snag that prevented the launch of this mission. thank you thank you for having me on the so i just part of time there is not much information available on the. technical problems that the sun's out to has to do. this or has just come out with a tweet and a statement do a very brief statement just to say that it's been a technical snag. one doesn't know that but i think the problem is possibly because she is so remarkably the geosynchronous launch of a good mark to be that has been used by chance they answer to how you sort of lead you to a new wicked that's been used previously. we have been using that if you sold me the large vehicle which is considered the tried and tested well cause of the indian space for such organization but it just so remarked that he has just gone through 2
10:21 am
test flights so far in a sense that could be part of the problem in a sense and they may be it may be a smaller problem it is the source said it is due to the caution that they had canceling this moment out this launch of this moment and the agency i mean they've also said that this is the most difficult mission that they have ever undertaken how do you see this as a step back how big of a big of a setback is it for for the launch. no of course it is a setback but i think it may be a temporary setback because you don't actually operates with a very small budget the space program so you don't want to land in a problem mission in a sense you don't want to shoot up something and then realize that it is going to be it's not able to soft out of the moon and it really happened out of the just state so that would be a huge piece of money and it flowed and sort of so what happened with these silly private company is that so that's basically it's good that it does happen at this
10:22 am
stage but having said that i think this could also how does the problem needs to be taken care of right away because just so be ma chill obvious among the same big a large vehicle he's also proposed to be used for the going on mission or what is called the indian austerlitz mission to be undertaken in 2022 saw gotta get this right before before we proceed to be flooded in the sense of the clock is ticking rajiv logical pylon with a view of the apps thank you so much thank you tennis news now novak djokovic is the men's wimbledon champion after coming through an epic final with fellow heavyweight roger federer only one who talk he is here with the story i mean this was really an exceptional exceptional match quite long plenty of drama and it was close on the end of incredibly close and hit nearly 5 hours it came to the point where to when is this match going to end to end it's the longest wimbledon singles
10:23 am
final ever and it had to go into a historic 5th set tiebreaker and federer in the final said he had 2 points to win a joke of it with an incredible fight back and he showed everyone why he is the world number one now despite that i mean despite federer having the best percentage he had no he did not drop a set in the 1st what he thought he did not drop a serve in the 1st 4 sets. and he have the better return percentage he had more he won more breakpoints but joke of it i mean that was just incredible his if defensive game his believe and i think that at the end edged out roger federer of but this was a game for the ages a topic is roger federer's age and he's almost 38 and he's had quite a stunning i guess we can call it a comeback. was this his last chance to win a wimbledon title no no no i mean look yes he may be old but if you watched
10:24 am
that game yesterday as well as the semifinal against rafael nadal he did not look any more tired than joke of it last night though and again this was an extremely close match it could have gone either way so each was not the reason why roger federal law it's you have to make that clear and we've had this conversation we always have this conversation of you've been here before between 20122017 federal also had a dry spell of major us and what happened in 2017 he made a comeback he won back to back a straight and opens as well as wimbledon so obviously this is a missed opportunity and it would have been a missed opportunity for either one but the tank is full as full as you can you know fill it up when it comes to roger federer. the novak show which has just a few titles shy of matching federer's record of 20 grand slams should he do it look if there's a lot of talk about this and if there's one man that could that can do it it is no
10:25 am
back djokovic i mean for one he's an incredibly incredibly talented player and 2 he has time on his side he's only 32 years old at 16 grand slams that's 4 behind roger federer and you and you know psychologically we all know how human beings are the closer you get to something the more you know you want it the more you stop thinking about it and if you go by what his former coach respect us after the match he said that joke of it isn't just about becoming one of the greatest players of all he wants to become the greatest player of all time and djokovic himself after the match there with during the ceremony when they were handing off the trophies djokovic himself said that federer's longevity to him being 37 years old and still playing at the way he did when he was at his peak that that is an inspiration to him so there's more to come from joke of it ok a big promise that we. were thank you. to cricket now in england to have won the
10:26 am
men's world cup for the 1st time ever after beating new zealand in the closest final in the history of the competition the scores were tied at 241 bronze each at the end of the match so both sides received a one extra over england went 1st and hit 15 a score that new zealand and matched however england superior number of boundaries in the game gave them a win on home soil. a quick reminder now the top stories we're following for you here and news at least 75 people have been killed during the monsoon rains across read south asian countries more than a 1000000 people have been displaced in the fall bangladesh and india the rains have triggered flooding and landslides. there watching t w news live from berlin still to come china's economy grows at its slowest pace in nearly 3 decades that is fueling concerns of the ripple effect across the global economy. all that
