heavy rain has been hampering efforts. and get aid to survivors. more than 4,600 people are now moan to have died. the united nations says 8 million people are being effective. many have been left without food and shelter. rescuers where officials say 250 people are missing after a new mudslide and avalanche. reports from katmandu. katmandu international airport, the only way in or out of nepal since saturday's quake. those that survived are finding their way there many have been waiting for days.
we are from india and a state of federal government is nowhere in site to help us. >> just like ha, and the flag that -- otongue the first night, it was really raining last might so we are going to stay dry with that tent. while thigh try to leave search and rescue teams arrive with their trained dogs this team is from spain. >> it dependents on the situation, because sometimes the people the possibility to -- and it is possible to wait for ten days.
these are the lucky ones they survived but haven't eaten for days until now charities are stepping into the breach, lines of people displaced are fed it is their only source of food, they have lost everything. sans like this are common people continue to dig, many volunteers joining in the rescue and recovery operation. trying to find the remains of their homes or people buries under tons of rubble. back at the airport planes are arriving all the time. the authorities are giving priority to run across the quake zone and rescue survivors. help is coming in from abroad too, but the lack of space means only a certain number of planes can land. >> the airport is vital in the aid effort the first few
days are important to get rescue teams in, in the outlying areas that have been effected by one of nepal's worst natural disasters. 're in one area, the evidence is very clear to see how people have been displaced. many hundreds are catching in large open spaces that you can see behind me. they come out of their homes and feel it is much safer. the makeshift fires, they are trying to keep warm as much as they can they have had no help from the local hertz from the tents you see the canvas has been donated by well wishers or by neighbors who managed to locate their friends and help them what you see are people who have many of them full time jobs
but they can't go to their jobs because they are so concerned about their homes and also the families we spoke to one that said that the family has had to find other locations across nepal to try to find safe accommodations because where they are in the area of the epicenter is still very unsafe and they don't feel safe staying with they are. the ever the moment, this is an image and an experience that is being felt by many thousands of people, across central nepal and the earthquake area. >> live now to al jazeera who is in cat man do. hows that the rain been effecting efforts to reach the remote areas. >> it is really hampers efforts. locals have taken to initiative they came out select ambulances and rescue vehicles many and people came out with pick axes one of the historic areas of the city,
to rye to find survivors they only found one body and then they kept digging then the rain came and it came down hard, and that really shut down the search and rescue operation there more international search teams arrived, these were from japan, malaysia, and germany the ones we saw and they also took a look at this area, to see if they could find anyone. but so far off they have been find is bodies. >> give us the context with nepal, the infrastructure in some ways is effected more severely than perhapses in a more developed country. what kind of facility does he have and what more does he need? >> well, actually, nepal right now you can see people
are still living out in the open the only difference is now they have the tents. this is one of the main parts of the capitol and this is how people are living since saturday. this shows how desperately needed supplies are. relief supplies are still a fraction of what is needed. it is only in the capitol as we heard in the piece, there is much -- there's a much bigger area outside the city that has been completely inaccessible by land, and roads because of the landslide, now a helicopter tries to go et and land in the area today but wasn't able to do so because there was no place for it to land. and i think the poor infrastructure here, the lack of resources the lack of coordination shows that really nepal and the government needs every bit of help it can get. >> thank you very much indeed for bringing us the latest there from cat moon do.
at least 52 people are feared dead at a huge landslide in afghanistan. police say most of those killed were women and children, the only way to access the area was by helicopter and surrounding roads covered in snow. >> forces have fired shots across the cargo ship in the gulf. the news agencies said they boarded the vessel after it trespassed. they are calling it a civil matter. traveling through the strait after the south coast of iran at the time, it is now reported to be near the iranian. >> saudi arabia has arrested more than 90 people suspected of belonging to the his. laic state of the levant. they were planning on carrying out attacks including a car bombing against the embassy. >> the details of this came in a statement by the interior ministry and it was on the press agency on --
just basically said that 93 prospects have been arrested including two who are accused of having hiring and attempts to attack the u.s. embassy in march. with car. bos also that includes 65 saudis and foreigners, women are calling for the statement, but they did not give her name or nationality and from the statement looks like this operation has been going on for several months. the first group that was arrested was 15 saudis, last february, and they created a cell which they call the two holy mosques. and they are a part of isil according to the statement. they have what -- they have a lot of cash that has been found by the saudis security authorities it is a huge problem in saudi arabia, because saudi arabia is one of the countries that is open
hing another number of countries in the campaign against isil both many syria and iraq. they also have a long history with this type of group since september 11th as we all know, most of the hijackers were from saudi arabia, they have been waiting a war against al quaida, and now also against isil, and isil has vowed on several occasions to fight back against any of the middle eastern countries that are participating in the war against their minister inside iraq and syria so there is a lot across the kingdom. >> the middle east contributor to the u.s. based think tank the middle east forum. quite a large number of aests from isil. >> i guess we can say, it is -- in terms as far as isil goes it is a culmination building up for a series of operations.
isil declares in 2014, an official province what they would call they don't recamiers the kingdom, so they refer to it by the name of the two holy fights. and that had been going on it's not a new thing. it's been going on for quite some time. it is difficult to say -- beyond the circles because very -- although the province was declared this wasn't much
evidence of the isil presence. and it wasn't advertised on social media. someone may put up a banner and say -- in the dessert but it didn't beyond that, there was very little some sympathy was increased but you had saudi participation in the strike back against the houthis rebels which might increase perception among the region at least that they are expanding the interests. >> it's a much songer country in some ways. typically building up the presence in areas where there is no infrastructure or aflac of governance. building up cells is what we can expect.
it wasn't the first time. a few months ago with the same problem it's not of the scale that we see now that's really where we expect it to manifest itself. they have to compete with a.q.a. >> and just briefly. duke they are having any material impact. >> i think it can help to contain isil. large view overall. it remains unchanged. tick credit is the exception but it was a mass
organization orb power backed by u.s. air strikes. >> . >> landing in the yemen capitol. indo knee sean convicts seven foreigners despite international appeals for them not to. >> and in sport how the word's richest tennis tournament just got richer, all the details details late details late iraqi army and isil fighters say they have the upper hand for the largest oil refinery, it is crucial for iraq more than a quarter of the country's entire finding capacity. reports from baghdad. >> this is what the iraqi
security forces want you to see. a force of army military and federal mistaking the fight to the his. laic state many the battle for iraq's oil refinery beijing. beijing has been hard fought over for the last six months with isil and iraqi security forces saying at different times they are in control. they are on going clashes that's been the case for two weeks we are fighting on three fronts around the perimeter, who have pushed back attacks and now are trying to push into the defensive line. >> according to police sources who spoke to al jazeera, 200 iraqi specific forces are now trapped because an important supply line has been cut by isil. those soldiers are demanding air strikes a counter offensive. in a video online, the group says it is in control on a mounting significant attacks
on soldiers. a military affairs writer and analyst, he explains why the fight for beijing has been so hard. >> there are three reasons why the fight has been so tough. first, because isil controls the military supply lines around the perimeter. secondly isil has established a strategic --. >> okay, this is al jazeera america, live from new york city we want to get you to this press briefing from captain of the baltimore police department. >> from both our local regional and state partners, and right now we are also having also from washington d.c., we are incredibly thankful for the support of our partners to open h us, we are deploring critical infrastructure sites locations that have experienced previous incidents of lawlessness, and areas where efforts tell us
we need to be. we will respond quickly and efficiently to incidents that take place. but again we are hoping that we don't see any of those today. right now we know that a minimum of 20 officers have been injured. we expect that number may be higher but we have reports that our officers sustained injuries did not want to go seek medical treatment. they wanted to stay with their other officers and continue to help protect the city. we know there are 144 vehicle fires and we know there's one person who is in critical condition as a result of a structure fire right now there is a large crowd in pennsylvania avenue, that crowd is peaceful, and that's who we are used to seeing.
a group of people that come together peacefully, to voice their frustrations and to do so in a peaceful manner. we have a 10:00 o'clock curfew this evening and that is in effect until 5:00 o'clock tomorrow earning. we will be enforcing that, i think it is very appropriate right now to thank all of the people many the community, we have received emails text messages messages on our social media from people across the one across the state, in the city we have had people bringing our officers food, and water as they are out in various neighbors we want to thank them for that. we are very thankful for the show of sup bort from our community, and i think everyone in baltimore is looking forward to peace returning. again, we want to ebbs -- with that i will take
questions. >> cam some of your own officers say there weren wayings that they needed more help after the violence saturday night. why wasn't more help here before yesterday? you know i think this is clearly what people want to talk about i think it is important to add a degree of context when we deployed our offices yesterday we were deploying for a high school event. i don't think there's anyone in the country that would expect us to deploy automatic weapons and armored vehicles to an event with 13, 14, and 15-year-olds. that's not what people expect from their police department. what we saw that turn into was an incident that escalated in violence, and the age group of the people involved increased as well. so as of today.
you saw that throughout the techniques to address that situation, to address that concern, and where we are today, where we called in support, and we with have that support and deploring it right now. >> what i can tell you is that we have officers that are deploys to our hot spots. that we have our national guard, that we have the ability to respond quickly to incidents of law lessness that take place and again when it is about creating context. in other locations the incidents have been contained to one area. what we saw last night was a group of people take advantage of a situation of a very unfortunate situation and use that to tear down their own neighborhoods.
our deployment today is to respond to those. >> i think any threat that comes in right now any bit of information will be examined for it's veracity. we will continue to do invest guy tiff work. we put out that release that we had arrested the individual who had destroyed our police car much like that we are going to do work. we will find those people and arrest them. we are alsoing looing at various areas of information so we can do whatever we can to mitigate these incidents.
>> the police commissioner is in the watch center right now. what i want to say that we are very thankful for we have that large group that they are peaceful, that's the baltimore we are used to seeing. >> [inaudible]. >> so we know that the curfew is in effect. 10:00 o'clock at night unless you are enganged in work or on your way to medical treatment, you are not allowed to be out obviously that will be enforced. go have a tremendous number of resources and we will enforce that curfew to make sure that our city stays safe throughout the night. >> i don't want to speculate what that looks like.
i think there's a degree of common sense but at the same time, this is about making sure the city is safe. we have put out there's a 10:00 o'clock curfew, so we are telling people to please stay off the streets after 10:00 o'clock, unless you are on the way to receive medical treatment or. cooing from work. we are ingo to need to get to all those calls. we will -- i think one thing we want to make sure, is that -- we have an obligation to protect life, there's a siren behind me, we have an obligation to protect life, and by protecting life that
is how we move to protect property. that's -- from taking place so we will get to those calls for service we will investigate the criminal acts that took place we will do everything that we can to make sure that we are putting resources in the right place. >> that happened this morning particularly [inaudible] i know this morning we made about a dozen arrests. it looks right now it is seven adults and five children or five juveniles that were arrested. we will investigate reports of criminal activity as they take place etch p i think it is very important not to lump all of the criminal activity into one. we will be doing. >> you have the information.
>> give me one second. we will be -- to do hourly briefings from now until 9:00 o'clock tonight, so we can update you. i will put that out as we get more on that. >> you have been watching to baltimore city police department. he has been giving us a briefing and you heard at the end, the promise that they would try at least to give hourly briefings. but boy a different captain today than yesterday. when we first saw him in the afternoon hours. sometime after 3:00 p.m. at that time he was dealing with a situation that was spiraling out of control he had six officers that before injured one was unresponsive at that time. it is certainly a far different situation than around this time yesterday will the me find out more on that paul is standing by, live in baltimore and paul,
the captain mentioned there's a large gathering. i don't know if you are there, and north avenue. ands much different it seems a very different situation today, than what we were talking about yesterday. >> it certainly is generally speaking more peaceful and calm but it is very tense. the sense situation here. there was some kind of summer. police chopper circles very tightly to cheer this intersection, this is north in pennsylvania right behind us, it is just to my right. there was a surge from the line across this intersection pepper spray to get people back away from the line. hundreds of people threw theiren has up, things have calmed down a little bit but as i said, the temperatures
just got turned up a much different situation than yesterday, still very volatile and unpredictable. >> paul, help me, what happened. what precipitated the surge? what was going on? there are thousands of people here in this intersection. and they are moving closer and closer to the police line and i think in an effort to maintain distance, there was some push back, and there was pepper spray used to create some space. came down very chose close enough to allow the loud speaker to allow them to clear the intersection, it has not been cleared but things do seem to have simmers down for the moment.
>> are youer haing of other episodes? is this the main area right now of activity. >> this does seem to be the main area of this kind of activity. this kind of tense, what we saw throughout the city was clean up. community groups coming together orallers saying we are going here, you are going there, heading out a hardening effort. none of this elsewhere. we are certainly here not getting records of widespread activity. and pennsylvania avenue, and north avenue, that is is situation, certainly that police can handle. paul, appreciate it, thank you. we will be following
