5:05 pm
predicting voter apathy this 2nd time around even though it's an unprecedented election to have elections in such a short time period has never happened in israeli history so analysts weren't sure what was going to happen but we're seeing that israelis are interested in you know who their next leader will be and are churning out to vote for one of the $29.00 parties that are vying for seat in the israeli parliament even though just 9 of them are actually predicted to pass threshold i'm betting when netanyahu is fighting this election while facing 3 corruption cases how much of a role has that played in the campaign yes that's true actually the 1st hearings he's facing has for tiering is now there are scheduled for the beginning of october at which point a government will not even have been formed yet so it's a serious thing that he's facing and it's actually been a huge issue also in the campaign he himself has been campaigning very aggressively trying to portray the charges against him as
5:06 pm
a kind of witch hunt the people who are sort of after him in his words as having a political agenda to try and topple him that being basically everyone the left wing party the police even the attorney general and his opponents so that the blue and white party which is the largest opponent but also other parties are actually really campaigning to topple netanyahu to say that he's not fit to govern anymore and to also claim that he's actually undermining democratic institutions by attacking yet by attacking the state in this way so it's been a huge issue there have been other important issues too but the question of whether netanyahu should stay or go has really been one of the big ones. in jerusalem thank you. we'll take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world iran's supreme leader ayatollah ayatollah ali khamenei has ruled out diplomatic talks with washington at any level unless the u.s. returns to the nuclear deal that president trump abounded in last year his remarks

kalani has died at the age of 91 and all. those there with orses in indonesia are battling to contain forest fires in the center thick clouds of choking smog across the country and beyond schools have been closed and health centers are providing oxygen to thousands of people suffering from respiratory problems at the fires are a yearly occurrence often the result of illegal burning for land clearance but the issue is that dry weather has made the situation worse. breathing here has become a struggle eyes sting and headaches abound heavy smog has forced people on the indonesian island of borneo to leave their homes. large scale forest fires have burned more than 1000 square kilometers of indonesian land since the beginning of august the islands of borneo and sumatra will hit especially hard schools and cannot gardens has been closed people are exposed to a thick haze day and night tiny particles in the smog post several health risks
5:09 pm
including strokes and respiratory infections the youngest are especially affected. he has asked previously everything was fine but because he was playing outside he started having difficulty breathing before the smoke worsened the never experienced charges of breath. the fires are allegedly caused by indonesian farmers they want to convert the burned down rain forest into profitable farmland police have arrested 185 people over forest fires so far but the blaze is hard to get under control. the smog has now spread to neighboring malaysia and the capital kuala lumpur the air quality has been officially declared unhealthy and local residents are angry. that they will but i'm under the impression we're facing the same his problems year after year there is no difference it's as if
5:10 pm
there is no action taken by anybody to handle this so far every year. the forest fires have sparked the blame game between indonesia and malaysia the smog from indonesia has close hundreds of malaysian schools with the fires out of control there is no sign of tensions easing and intensive. say with global concerns that teenage activists gratitude and bourke has received arms the international highest of what it calls a unique leadership and courage in standing up for human rights. an assistant secretary general who night presented the swedish campaign with the ambassador award for the ambassador of conscience award in washington speaking after a standing ovation told by governments to do more and called on people to keep up the pressure. so what i'm telling you to do now is to act because no one is too small to make a difference i'm urging all of you to take part in the global climate
5:11 pm
strikes on september 20th and 27th thank you. and just one last thing see you on the streets. with. aggressive tone but did the washington correspondent public yesterday caught up with mr secretary-general a community to who presented the award you were you know an activist yourself as a young man and here you are now what advice. have you given to create a tumor gore the other fridays for future activists and what do you want to pass on to them that maybe they can learn from well firstly i say to young people who are standing up to secure their future and to defend their rights is don't put any
5:12 pm
faith in the current bunch of about the this we have run out of fresh ideas we talk talk talk without action and that young people need to bring to the public debate the freshness of their perspectives. new solutions on old problems many of the. politicians and business leaders all recognize that climate change is a serious problem but don't have the political will and the energy and the passion that young people have and that's what they need to bring to it so actually. very hesitant about giving young people advice is look how good how well my generation of activists have done in the sense that we still have all of these problems so i think right now with humility i must say that really looking to young people to bring their numbers their passion but also young people need to push back when adults say young people are the leaders of tomorrow if young people wait for
5:13 pm
tomorrow the won't be a to model for them to be able to take leadership given the realities of what climate change represents which is essentially a mess that penalty facing the entire population of our planet why do you think it is that it's taking place now because we've known about climate change or the climate crisis for for many many many years but it seems like now it's really beginning to finally hit home that's sort of my impression but a couple of things are changing one is that in the last decade we've seen almost 100 percent increase in extreme weather events so today you don't have to be a climate scientists or something just have to watch the with the bulletins or whichever country you're in you can see something is changing drastically in the u.k. for example where they've had the highest temperature days recently now 85 percent of the people in britain recognize that climate change is one of the biggest
5:14 pm
threats they face the 2nd is the new social media environment allows for a different kind of organization that crosses boundaries that it's light it's flexible it's less bureaucratic it's decentralized and there's a real power in that kind of organization. 3rd what. sr is more leader full organizations or leader full movements so who's the figurehead and the initiator as we're really keen pains even when we were speaking to about the war she said provided it's for the movement and for everybody who participated and that kind of leadership where people don't want to be leaders you know but see that they've been put into a situation where they have to lead is the kind of leaders that we want unfortunately the world we live in today with too many people or too desperate to be leaders when in fact they should actually ideally stay at home and they would help society much better then by capturing the white house for example and as the
5:15 pm
international secretary general kumi naidoo speaking with a w's problem and yes let me take you back now to our top story deadly bombings in afghanistan's a paba province and the capital kabul 46 people killed in 2 suicide bombings claimed by the taliban. we'll get more on this from a journalist. who joins us on the line from kabul welcome to the w bomb attacks during election rallies to be expected or is president. ghani a particular target of the time. definitely a particular target there have been attacks on election rallies and different election related events in past years but this year the taleban put out a very specific statement saying that they will target election rallies and they warned people not to attack them saying that you know to day they may come under harm and that they're trying to protect civilian life but that essentially if you go you may end up being attacked and that's what we're seeing this is what we saw
5:16 pm
in taiwan is that you had these election rallies 200 not thousands of people show up and they're just ordinary civilians trying to take part in the democratic process and then they take something like that and the taliban wants them to stay away which is all for a terrorist group and so by by attacking these rallies what are they trying to achieve they're trying to disrupt the democratic process they're trying to keep people from voting they're trying to say you know it's not worth it if you're going to go to these your sort of part of what they would call. a corrupt system our stooge system and so they're saying don't bother because if you do it could end up costing you something you know especially after your life and in a country where violence is so prevalent is security an issue in the election. it's
5:17 pm
a 100 percent of an issue you know the government for instance in the last parliamentary elections they dispatched thousands of extra matter terry and police out of the province and they're planning to the same this time. because at the end of the day when you have armed opposition groups like the taleban and forces to be dying they are going to try and disrupt elections any way they can and this includes through violence and intimidation and i'm thinking more as a sort of campaign here because you have a huff colony going for a 2nd term presumably well i'm going to try to. improve the security situation but people will look around them and say well why be done in the last nationally. there's a lack of the question people are asking right they're saying that if your own election because this is what like at least the 3rd event related to his campaign that has come under attack or the 3rd time and campaign has come under attack and so these are questions that people are asking and that they will continue to ask
5:18 pm
and these are things that that may actually keep people obviously feel that that that you know are big time supporters of other candidates will absolutely show up other people will certainly think twice if not 3 times before putting in the effort to go and vote and what 10 days time 11 days time to talk to thank you for joining us in the tafe. ok thank you. well the football and the champions league is back with the 1st a group games kicking off tonight 2 german teams will be in action chris harrington from to interview sport can tell us more welcome cress thank you had dortmund and barcelona tonight quite a line oh yes we have 2 of the biggest clubs football clubs in the world facing off with one another barcelona seasoned victors in this competition they've wanted a total of 5 times dortmund runners up in 2013 but this season both sides have suffered defeat and their favorites on paper in this particular competition i like
5:19 pm
the german side because number one their homes ignalina park in a times playing in their own backyard it's like having an extra man on the pitch feel but here's more on the big showdown between dog men in barcelona. iconic yellow wall at dortmund's acknowledged una park is a fan favorite across the continent but players are also keen to drink in the atmosphere even superstar the n.l. messi who after the group stage draw all said he looked forward to finally playing there but a niggling cough injury may keep him out of the match. play will decide tomorrow it's true a few days ago we weren't so sure he'd play. but in our last training sessions he trained with the team he competed well and maybe was able to get some of the pain he was feeling out of his head. a team on fire having bounced back
5:20 pm
from defeats in the bundesliga by pushing for passed by a lead because on saturday was. captain and score of this goal marco voice is confident they can beat barcelona. i think it's important we concentrate on ourselves and don't talk too much about the opponent and about messi everyone knows he's the best but that's that we're playing at home and we also have a good team so we want to get out. don't mn face an uphill tosk whether messy plays or not their group also contains a rejuvenated into my lamb sides so 3 points would certainly go a long way what's a cress herrings and what happens if messy doesn't play you know barcelona i think will be alright they have stars of front that or threats to any defense in all of europe in luis suarez and on tongue griese month but i do think let messy will play
