tv News Al Jazeera November 22, 2013 10:00am-11:01am EST
>> announcer: this is al jazeera. ♪ hello and welcome to this al jazeera news hour. over the course of the next 60 minutes these are the world's top stories: further confrontation in cairo. [ gunfire ] in syria, facing a desperate fight to avoid defeat, six of the biggest rebel groups say they will merge.
the number of dead from typhoon haiyan in the philippines, passes 5,000. hello, i'm judy mcdonald in london. the grim search for survivors after a supermarket roof collapse in latvia. at least 45 people have died. i feel like i'm down out of the tree. i'm still in the forest but it's a big step. >> and more green peace activists are released on bail in russia after protesting against arctic oil drilling. ♪ we begin with the fact that police may well still be fighting with demonstrators in egypt. there have been a series of rallies across the country. today, friday, and on sunday, it
will be 100 days since the storming of the mosque in cairo in which several hundred people lost their lives. that was in the vicinity of this area, where we see the fires. we see protesters and security forces on the street. let's go to our reporter in cairo. we can see pictures of what appears to be some kind of standoff, dominic. what have you learned about what is happening there? >> what we understand, david is there has been a series of low-level skirmishes. several hundred people trying to get through to show their presence, and the police, the security forces fired tear gas at them to try to push them away. as you say sunday is the 100 days since the it is-in protests that they were disbursed and many hundred people were killed.
there has also been some sort of clashes going on at a dormitory where one student was killed a few days ago, and 16 students were arrested. we understand what has hand today is that some people inside the dormitory have tried to get outside, and the police fired tear gas to get them to stay inside. it's worth making the point in giza it's not much more than what normally happens on a friday, but the pictures we're seeing doesn't happen every friday, and this is all preparer to to sunday's largest event where the anti-coup alliance have called for people to come to the streets. >> we are looking at pictures
which have been sent to us on the streets. we have no idea how many demonstrators there are, or what kind of security pro sense there is. have you any idea what is actually happening here in >> this area we have been to several times in recent weeks on fridays we know that several hundred people will turn up. finish friday prayers and then they march for a period of time, go down a set route and then that's the end of the process. this seems to be different. actually what is happening is people are putting barricades, setting fire to them, and that generates a picture that seems very dramatic, but it's difficult for us here to put a number on how many people are there. it started off as a few hundred, now whether it has grown or dwindled we cannot establish
here right no. >> that's dominic kaine live for us in cairo with events taking place right now. a number of major rebel groups in syria are merge going one. the fighters represent rebel forces from across the country, and are calling themselves the islamic front. the statement was made after assad forces progress. >> translator: this aims to topple the assad regime completely, and build a sovereign state where god alone will be our leader. >> the fact they are by doing this effectively distances themselves from what is known as
the free syrian army, suggests further schisms, which could make any more negotiations more difficult. >> that's true. and the other notable names are of course the islamic state of iraq, and an [ inaudible ] known as [ inaudible ]. what you are seeing is the islamic middle ground. these aren't the groups that particularly like the united states. they are all notably silent when the prospect of american air strikes were on the cards, but neither are they despite the comments about wanting to see on islamic state in syria necessarily always the closest allies of the extreme islamic groups fighting in there too. although we know on the ground when the battle is raging, they will help each other. it is evidence of a schism but
it is also evidence of efforts to deal with it. the groups are [ inaudible ] are all fairly similar in their ideologies. they say it's going to take three months to pull this together militarily, politically, and organizationally. but it is also true that they are not the ones with the closest political relations with the syrian coalition. they really only have a dialogue with the free syrian army. so yes, it will make them perhaps less hospitalable, but as one member said to us just now when we called them, this might actually make the free syrian army improve its act. it may be a catalyst for general reorganization.
>> i suppose when we try to put this in to any kind of contact we have to try to establish how influential these people actually are on the ground, how involved they have been in the major battles and how likely are they to be involved in any future battles? >> well, these are the key names if we leave [ inaudible ] ah out of the group for a moment, groups like [ inaudible ] are the stars if you would like. they are the ones that cover basically damascus north. they have been the most organized, from our point of view, the most accessible. the commander of one organization was the one killed last week. that was seen as a great blow to the opposition fighting movement, but this is a serious collection of brigades.
these are the big names. so this is a major coming together of very consolidated and respected opposition fighting groups. >> anita we thank you very much indeed. anita is in instamm bull. russian's foreign minister is on his way to geneva where negotiations on iran's nuclear program are taking place. it's not clear whether he will join those talks. diplomats have been trying to reach an agreement. james bayes our diplomatic editor live for us in grover norquist. mr. lavrov is on his way there and will take part in these talks, but it's not official word. so what is he expected to do
when he gets there? >> not official, and we're told that no invitation has yet been extended to the foreign ministers of the p5-plus-1 from katherine ashton. but it does look like things are a lot more optimistic. the russian foreign minister will be coming here. he may well be coming to see the un enjoy on syria. that may be the purpose of him coming here initially, and then he would be here if there was a deal to sign. there is actually quite a lot of progress on syria going on here and a big meeting taking place on monday, trying to prepare for a peace conference, the so-called geneva 2 conference. getting back to this conference
they have been working through the text on the possible deal on iran. we understand that they have been looking through the wording. the iranian foreign minister and katherine ashton has now rewritten it a bit. and they are looking at it, and then they will, i think come back and say whether it is acceptable. we believe katherine ashton, and the foreign minister zarif are meeting right now. i want to add one caveat, though, david, we were here ten days ago and nothing happened. >> but you get a sense talking whether something significant is about to happen. is that the feeling you get? or is it possibly going to be a
couple of weeks or months yet? >> i think we get the feeling that they are extremely close, but that last little bit is the most contentious bit, and that is the problem, having said that, i think the news has changed a little bit in the last couple of hours. and also the last time, prime minister zarif was seen, he was smiling broodly. >> all right. james thank you. there have been protests in pakistan against sec -- sectarian violence. there have also been scuffles between protesters and officials in the northeastern city.
the official death toll from typhoon haiyan in the philippines has now crossed 5,200. the storm was one of the most powerful ever recorded. thousands of people are still missing and the government expects the death toll to rise further. let us here more from tacloban. >> what is expected is this number to go considerably higher. here only 50% -- half of the roads have in fact been cleared of debris. for example, this -- this piles and piles of debris behind me. judging by the smell it's easy to see there are still some corpses lying around. the president said a few days
after the typhoon struck that he doesn't believe the death toll will go beyond 2,500. that is before he saw the extent of the damage. in the early days following the disaster, many, many residents giving in coastal areas have in fact decided to bury their dead on their own. local government officials have in fact decided to bury several other bodies lying around simply to avoid diseases. so we'll never really know the extent of the death toll, and the list of those who are missing is long. in many, many areas the numbers are much higher. >> in afghanistan more trouble in an important relationship as hamid karzai and washington wrangle over an
arrangement. plus demonstrators demanding that militias leave tripoli. and we have sports as well. the news now from europe, a grim search and rescue operation is underway in latvia. a supermarket roof collapsed in a city. among the dead three firefighters who were trying to help survivors. >> reporter: hopes of finding survivors are fading. rescue workers are now concentrating on recovering bodies. the roof of the supermarket in the capitol collapsed on thursday evening. hundreds of people were inside at the time. many shopping on their way home
from work. this man's wife was one. >> translator: i have a wife there. there is no information about her. whether she is dead or alive. whether ever i call there is no information >> reporter: when the first collapse happened firefighters rushed to help, but while they were working the rest of the roof came down. >> translator: it was crashing. most people started crying and screaming, as it was certain those left inside after the first collapse will not be alive after the second one. >> reporter: local reports say a roof top garden was being built at the time of the accident. >> translator: it's clear we have to take steps to avoid tragedies like this happening again. we are going to impose stricter controls on construction projects of this kind, especially ones that have already started and ones that are about to start.
>> reporter: the building itself is only two years old. saturday has been declared a national day of mourning in latvia. there are fears the death toll will keep rising. russia has freed on bail the captain and six crew members of a green peace ship seized during a protest two months ago. meanwhile an international maritime tribunal has ordered russia to release the ship and 30 people arrested. >> reporter: st. petersburg prison where thousands of political prisoners were incarcerated during soviet times. it was the last stop on some of the green peace activists road to freedom. nearly $2 million was posted to release the activists on bail, allowing them to leave prison once legal paperwork was
completed. the american captain was one of the first to walk out on friday morning. >> if we make people more aware of the dangers of drilling in the arctic for oil, and the unnecessary need for doing it, then it was successful. but at this point it's hard to judge. >> reporter: this green peace volunteer said he had absolutely no regrets. would you have done this again if you had known? >> absolutely. absolutely. we have got to take a holistic view of the problem. and the problem is that climate change is very serious, and if we don't act soon then it is going to get far worse. so now is the time to start doing something about climate change. >> reporter: but there is concern about the fate of colin russell. he was given another three months in detention.
an appeal has been launched. >> i hope colin russell will be released very soon. >> reporter: the court granted more bail applications on friday, which should see the remainder of the green peace activists released shortly. so obvious delight from those freed today, but with no travel documents oren try visas, they won't be leaving russia in a hurry. and staying in russia, russian president has accused the eu of blackmailing ukraine over its decision to suspend talks on a trade agreement. meanwhile in kiev opposition politicians booed the prime minister over the move. the turn around marked a big victory for moscow which has worked aggressively to derail
the deal. it came after they refused to allow the former prime minister to travel abroad for medical reasons. police in london have revealed that two people have been released on suspicion of holding women in captive for three years. tim friend has the stories. >> reporter: police already have enormous amounts of evidence to shift through in connection with this case. they have spent 12 hours searching the premises where the women were held. they have about 50 bags of evidence, and about 2,500 exhibits, but the most crucial evidence will come from the women themselves. they are traumatized after their years in slavery. that's how it is being described. slowly but surely, detectives
are gathering information from them about their experiences. police have spoken of invisible handcuffs in this case. they weren't physically chained. they were kept and abused mentally and there were beatings police say. this is what the detective in charge of the case had to say earlier. >> if the people were walking on the street it might look like they are not controlled, but it's all about psychological control, it's all about threats, and a period of years where there may have been some form of grooming. >> reporter: police have also revealed that the couple who were arrested and later released on bail were also arrested by the police in the 1970s. detectives would not elaborate on that, they said they wouldn't comment further, they didn't want to jeopardize their case,
but clearly the couple who have now been bailed, they are both age 67, they are not british nationals, have had contact with the authorities in the past. >> we're now joined in the studio by andrew who has recently published a report on human slavery and trafficking in london. welcome to the program. this really is an extraordinary case. have you been surprised by the duration that these women were held captive? >> absolutely. i'm not surprised of the condition they were in, and the fact that they were controlled in modern day london. what surprises me is the duration. but enslaved people are in london at the moment amongst us very difficult to spot, and we
need the authorities to gear themselves up so they can be prepared to take -- to investigate when people have suspicions. >> when you say enslaved what do we mean? was it a bar -- barista not being paid or what do we mean? >> there are certain options. trafficked and enslaved people the ones effectively used as a commodity, and the difficulty in modern day slavery is that in many cases any enslaved person is complicit in their own capture, if you want. they follow certain instructions. they have been made to believe that they -- that their current life is the only option that they can have, and their best interests are with the people who enslave them, so those sort
of psychological controls are so much stronger than any metal shackle or manicle because that person even if physically restrained are being held. one of the things i was struck by was the lack of knowledge the people at the sharp end of the public services had about trafficking, and i'm talking police officers and social workers. they really don't know enough about the basics of trafficking, and that when members of the public come forward and have suspicions that they should be able -- their concerns should be taken seriously, and be able to be escalated to people who know -- who know the facts of
trafficking and the details and there are experts in it. and it's also important that we have got to stop talking about trafficking as though it effects some other ethnicity or some other community. >> thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you. and more news from europe a little later in the program, including the new xbox goes on sale, but can it beat its rival play station? and we have this from al jazeera headquarters . . . >> translator: after 20 years of work, we'll being thrown out on the streets. we're all 50 or 60 years old now, so we won't find jobs. >> also we are live in dallas, texas 50 years after the u.s. president, john f. kennedy was
shot and killed there. in sports something of an angry affair in the americana, we'll have the details of that and all of the sport in about 20 minutes. ♪ rescuing stranded residents. (vo) we pursue that story beyond the headline, past the spokesperson, to the streets. >> thousands of riot police deployed across the capitol. (vo) we put all of our global resources behind every story. >> it is a scene of utter devastation. (vo) and follow it no matter where it leads, all the way to you. al jazeera america.
♪ you are watching the al jazeera news hour. demonstrators in egypt protesting about the overthrow of president mohammed morsi in july. a number of major rebel groups in syria they say are merging. the fighters represent rebel forces from across the country and call themselves the islamic front. thousands of people are missing in the philippines and the government expects the death toll to rise further. let us go back to egypt, the
protests in the morsi strong hold city. demonstrators have been met with some resistance by security forces there. fires on the street. we'll go live now in cairo. bring us up to date with what you understand is happening there, please. >> reporter: well, we have a standingoff going on at the moment in the city from what we understand from witnesses we talked to on the ground, the situation seems to have calmed down a little bit. what happened is that some protesters tried to reach the intersection which was the heart of the sit-in last summer before mohammed morsi was ousted and it lasted really until the security forces cracked down on it in a
very violent way. so we have that going on, but it has calmed down, and then there is another standoff going on around a dormitory of the university. the university is the most prestigious religious university in this country. just two days ago the security forces had stormed a dorm there. there were clashes between the students and the security forces, and one person had died. today what happened is the students were trying to get out of the dormitory on to the street, the security forces fired tear gas and pushed them back in. according to one student we spoke to they said they are under siege and no one is allowed in or out of the building, and there are some
guards standing there next to the security forces. >> thank you very much indeed. one of the other stories we're covering in detail on this news hour is the decision to merge by a number of rebel groups in syria, a video statement issued by the leader of one of those groups said the aim was to create an islamic state in iran. this is the news announcement. they say it will take some time to come up with the logistics, but this could complicate talks being held in geneva. let's get the latest from richard white. do you share the sentiment that this is going to make it even more difficult to get people together in geneva in the first place? >> yes, i think for twofold reasons. first the syrian government is
noticing it's -- taking confidence from its victories in the battlefield and is therefore less and less inclined to make concessions needed to bring peace, and its backers, particularly russia are much less behind assad. and on the other side, in terms of the insurgeons they wouldn't want to go to the peace talks now because they are loosing. they would want to stabilize the situation. so you are seeing the saudis trying to bring unity among the forces, you are seeing attempts to escalate horizontally, so it is going to be very messy, and we are less and less likely to get a peace agreement, or any peace agreement that we do achieve could be enforced.
>> one would assume the reason people join together is practical as well, that thereby they can coordinate their military movements and logistic call stuff, but it also would suggest perhaps that without it they think they would be that much weaker, which was back up the thesis that the opposition actually really is up against it right now? >> yes, one reason why the insurgents would want to unify all of their various factions is one reason they appear to be losing is disunity. we saw a recent occasion when the islamists refused to come to the defense of one of the no non-islamist groups. but these communities are pretty much shotgun marriages.
so they don't really like each other and i don't know that they trust each other enough to get unity in the battlefield. i think this will have little impact on the battlefield, but it's a sign that it is going to get much harder to enforce management. >> thank you richard. >> thank you. there have been demonstrations -- in fact there still are demonstrations in the libyan capitol of tripoli, people are demanding that militia leave the city. a number of militia groups have handed control of many of their bases to the libyan army. more than 40 people were killed last week when fighters opened fire on protesters.
>> translator: the evacuation of armed groups from the city of tripoli, this includes the evacuation of all armed groups, all should hand over the military compounds to the army and police or the government. afghanistan has rejected a u.s. deadline to sign a security pact by the end of the deal. they are talk about the deal which will determine the number and power of u.s. troops staying in the country after 2014. president karzai says any agreement should wait until after the presidential election in april of next year. jane ferguson has more from kabul. >> reporter: the 2.5 thousand representatives from around the world are splitting off in committees. they will debate the various issues in this private securities litigation reform act.
but a lot of people we have been speaking to here say they feel as though some of their discussions have been over shadowed by the row that was sparked yesterday when karzai said he would not sign this agreement before the presidential elections next year. some of the delegates here saying what is the point in us even discussing whether or not to approve this draft pact if it's not going to be taken seriously by our president. so there are still a lot of questions to be asked beyond the minute detail, but more in the international context. jane ferguson. let us go back to europe now. david, thank you. the greek prime minister has said that there is finally light at the end of the tunnel of the country's economic woes. he made the statement after announcing that his embattled economy is on the road to
recovery. this after six years in recession. he met with german chancellor in berlin. he insisted his country won't need anymore money from international lenders. >> there will not be a need for a new memorandum or new money. we want to stick by the current program, by the targets of this program, by the decisions that have already been taken, by the euro group, and the [ inaudible ], and as i have already explained, i believe we are inside or ahead of the targets. >> the messages aren't echoed by most of the people as many fear darker times are actually ahead. [ shouting ] >> reporter: you find all sorts protesting in athens these days. these women are cleaners from
the minister of finance. with government cuts, they could soon be fired. >> translator: after 20 years work we'll being thrown out on the streets. we're all 50 or 60 years old now, so we won't find jobs. even our children can't find work these days, so who will higher us? >> reporter: then the opposition leader turns up. the cleaning women won't go home until they get justice. like a good politician, he founds words and gestures of sympathy. but it's not clear he has any power to really help. but in a nearby office, something unusual is happening, a new tech company is doing rather well. they showed me their app to help customers find a taxi. he says the crisis has made it
easier to set up a new company. >> translator: we have too many people out of jobs or fearing they are going to lose their jobs. and [ inaudible ] so you have all of the ingredients of a level, and it's -- i think it's easier than ever for someone to make this step. >> reporter: but if there are a few winners, it's not hard to find the losers. they are on the street every night. two weeks from now a homeless family will move into this apartment. it is being run by a private greek charity. they are putting some 60 people into this entire building, and they could have filled it many times over. they are only getting the bare minimum of assistance from the municipal authorities, who themselves are feeding thousands of destitute people in athens
every day. at the university more evidence of a society under strain. admin staff meet to discuss a strike in its 11th week. they worry they are going to lose their jobs. hire education is in chaos. there were some smiles this week, the national team made it to the world cup. the greeks don't expect to win in 2014 just as many don't believe their government when it says that economic recovery is around the corner, but in this dark winter, any glimmer of hope is welcome. two weeks of talks aimed at negotiating green house gas emissions have entered the final moments in poland. critics have said they have been behind schedule. has this conference -- or do you think it will be considered a
failure? >> reporter: well that was certainly the feeling of many of those activists and green groups that left. they staged a walkout yesterday. but in the last few hours we have seen momentum picking up. some of the high-level figures are now locked behind closed door, and what has come out is a couple of different draft documents. one looks at the issue of damage and loss. who should be responsible for the damage and loss being caused by climate-related weather events. according to this document, they are setting up a committee and mechanism to try to dig into this deeper. the other issue being addressed is in draft document, is that of a new emissions-cutting agreement they hope to sign in paris in 2015. i have just heard that we have a u.s. position, which is positive
towards this new agreement. you'll recall the u.s. hasn't signed the protocol, and never was going to, in fact. so it is a very positive move if the u.s. is going to be committed to this agreement. >> thank you. ahead of the christmas rush in europe, microsoft has launched its long awaited xbox 1. but technology has changed dramatically since the last release. kim has more. >> reporter: from london's hard core gamers, this was a dream event, a chance to be the first in the world to try out the latest offering from microsoft, the much-anticipated xbox 1. the release comes just a few weeks after microsoft's competitor, sony revealed the
play station 4. the competition is fierce. while the target audience is the gamer, it's hoping this device [ inaudible ] over the living room. it wants this device to be used for watching and streams television and movies, and wants people to plug in, of course, to play games, but not everyone is convinced this type of device is going to take that place. >> people want to have great games, great multi-player, and great entertainment services all together in one box. >> the console may have developed in leaps and bounds since the last dereese eight years ago. but now there's things like tablets, smart tvs, sit-top boxes, pc's as well as gaming
consoles. there are about 4.3 billion of these desighses in the world. that is set to rise to 24 billion. at that point there will be 1.1 devices for every person on the planet. many believe there is still a future for console gaming. the challenge now for console makers is to convert casual gamers into dedicated fans to ensure the same turnout when the next generation of console comes out. i have never played an xbox, i just realized that, david. does that make me a complete [ inaudible ]? i'm not sure. >> i'm sure it doesn't. in just a couple of moments when we return, we will be reflecting on the life and death of president john f. kennedy.
there, and those of us who has watched it since. it was 50 years since president john f. kennedy was killed in dallas. there are commemorations taking place aloss the united states. alan, i believe behind you the brown building we can see, that is the book depository from where the fatal shot or shots were fired. >> it is a markedly different day in dallas than it was 50 years ago. it is freezing cold. when john f. kennedy arrived the sun was off, and he decided to take the double top off of his car so the people could see him. it turned out to be a fatal error. the car came down here, and turned the hairpin corner coming into the plaza, the gateway to dallas as they call it.
there is the brown building there. on the northeast corner, the top floor, come down just one window, and there you can see where lee harvey oswald came and fired three shots into elm street. seven seconds it took him to fire those three shots and those seven seconds changed the world and changed america almost forever. just on the other side where the press are gathered is the infamous grassy knoll where people believe there was a second shooter. it is interesting that dallas is going to mark the 50th anniversary. they have ever done a ceremony this big before. in a way they have tried to push it away to distance themselves from the pain and reputation it brought here, but now dallas is
ready to move on. messages of love across dallas in 65 locations, an attempt to escape the shadow of one of america's darkest days and the killing of a president. more than 20,000 people in total asked to contribute to redefine the world view of a place. >> the connection between the kennedy assassination and dallas will never be erased. we intend to change that narrative a little bit so that in the scope of talking about that, the world knows that within dallas there were thousands and thousands and thousands of people who believe that love and cam passion thrive here. >> reporter: now they are trying to make the plaza look more like 1963 with restored street lamps even the infamous grassy knoll has had a makeover.
for so long many tried to forget the day that john f. kennedy came to town. here preserved behind glass, the place where lee harvey oswald fired those shots which changed history. now the museum lets people learn about the events and the stain it left. >> this is an important moment, it's an opportunity for the city to share with the world its respect of president kennedy, and it's need to memorialize this tragic event. >> reporter: in 1963 dallas was strongly conservative, deep le religious, and there were many angry at the young president. >> this growth naturally changed the way the city is.
huge influx in terms of immigration into dallas, a change in culture. a change in its politics. it used to be a totally republican city, a totally republican county. now it's basically totally a democratic-lead county. >> reporter: dallas is determined the event won't define the city. >> alan 25 years ago i was where you are now for the quarter century assassination memorial. i'm wondering how younger americans now view the late president? how -- how is he regarded there? >> reporter: well i don't think they see him through the haze of the hope of what might have been, and i think that's why the
kennedy legacy has been brandished. so all of the presidents that followed for a generation were very much a disappointment. they didn't bring the change that the people had hoped for, and those optimistic days in the 1960s. i think the younger generation now just see him as perhaps almost the center of a large conspiracy theory, something of the past, and something perhaps their parents or grand parents talk about, but something they don't have a direct section. and dallas is banking on that as well. that people are forgetting what happened 50 years ago. but for many, many, they will remember what happened in 1963 here in dallas. here in the plaza. >> alan thank you, extraordinary to think in many ways the man we regarded as the most youthful
president would have been 97 in may. time for with the sport. >> thank you so much. australia's bowlers have dominated the second day in england. after being bowled all out. at one point the visitors lost 6 wickets for one run. england all out for just 136. >> mitch has been balling at some very good pace over the last few months. he was outstanding with his pace, and today was just reward for a lot of work he has put in. so it's good to have him back on the team. michael was the only english batsman who provided any resistance. australia will return on saturday on 65-0 loss. a lead of 224 runs. >> that was a disappointing
session -- little bit session just before tee. it really swung the game a little bit. our credit to the australia ballers. we never really got away at any point. football now, and it was ill-tempered affair in the first leg of the americana semifinal. one player was caught on camera hitting another player behind the referee's back. they got their first, and hallow first converted his penalty. and then a kick on an opponent. gomez's header pulled a goal back. but then liverpool also had a second player sent off. in the nba the denver
nuggets snapped the chicago bull's five-game winning streak. denver pulled away from chicago winning 97-87. the st. louis blues beat the boston bruins on thursday as part of the brew win's 90th season celebration. the canadian was on the 1970 boston team that beat st. louis in the finals. the game went to a shootout, derek roy scored in the fourth round to give them a win. thomas bjorn has a one-shot lead at the world cup. american kevin stralman is
second. but in the team event, the u.s. have a three-shot lead over denmark. pacquiao's trainer has dismissed reports that his career is coming to an end. pacquiao was once considered the best pound for pound fighter. >> it is not time yet for sure, and i -- i feel -- i'm glad -- i hope they have confidence -- i hope they are overconfident, because manny is going to destroy this guy. >> it sounds like he has gone through a few bouts himself. i'll be back in another half hour.
>> welcome to aljazeera america, i'm del walters, and these are the stories we're following for u. >> the president had been shot. >> 50 years after the assassination of president john f. kennedy, they share their memories of that tragic day. and the roof of a supermarket collapses, killing dozens of people in latvia, and a major storm moving across the northeast that can affect your holiday travel plans.
