9:13 pm
rights watch says that's all the more reason why two things need to happen one the un's human rights council should immediately convene an international independent investigation during its meeting this month to look into alleged war atrocities the other thing is something which human rights watch and other n.g.o.s have called for in the past a relisting of the saudi led coalition on the un secretary general's report on children and armed conflict the so-called name and shame list in two thousand and sixteen the saudi government threatened to withhold funding to the un if any of the members of the coalition landed on that so-called blacklist under intense pressure the secretary general at the time bonn ki-moon relented and pulled the saudi led coalition and its members from that list he did and came under much criticism and
9:14 pm
he in turn criticized the saudis and their allies for putting the pressure and not taking responsibility for their conduct in the battlefield now there's a new secretary general antonio good debt ish and he is facing the same pressure to put the saudi led coalition on this blacklist one thing that isn't being discussed is whether the united states is lobbying on behalf of the saudis and the other coalition members to not be involved in this blacklist. saudi arabia says it and i still plot to blow up its defense ministry headquarters would be the would be bombers have been identified as two yemeni nationals living in the country a security source said authorities seized grenades and firearms during the operation and the plotters were training to use explosive belts several people have also been arrested on suspicion of carrying out. in the kingdom it's not clear if the arrests are related to the bomb plot. coming up this news hour millions of

9:16 pm
in florida are still without power. before hitting the u.s. left a trail of devastation across the caribbean john heilemann joins us live from the island of barbuda one of the worst hit john what's the level of destruction have you found. well you may have to see in the oven you go home it's just like any of the other news here on bob you that completely sort of abandon this really is that there's an island right now there's no water there's little food and there's no inhabitants apart from a couple of ponies or horses and dogs and cats around here the only other things here us and a few people from the government officials that don't just come out just to check out at this stage what exactly the scale of the disaster is and if we pan a little bit to our left you can get some sort of idea going past a car that just someone left you see is an area of concrete that was. shot
9:17 pm
a shoe shop at a clothing shop before you see it not just time it's actually just completely gone all you've got there is the concrete floor and we've seen other things and it's just the same in the other not everything is not dummies we've also seen houses just got the fronts ripped off of them like the old house and other structures are relatively ok but the government says that about ninety percent of the island has suffered severe structural damage here and of course it's not just about buildings that's people's homes and their lives as well things in homes like more to log watches that have just bought clothes toys that have had to be abandoned the whole population about one thousand six hundred people have been evacuated to the island next door. and they're just waiting really to see how many months it's going to be before things go back to something approaching normality hits they can resume their lives john was seeing pictures aerial pictures that have the absolute destruction
9:18 pm
as you described and you saying people need to rebuild their lives how what do they need what can people do really to help them and one of the asking for. we're talking to some people from the government here and they just said listen this is too big for us to get hold of by ourselves we're going to need international aid there are some countries that apparently have pitching in of already venezuela which has close ties to the caribbean islands which are form the sort of bastion of support for them as apparently all been already been pitching in for help and they're looking for help from other sources the governments put a price tag on everything that has to be done to recuperate the island of bob you know at about two hundred million dollars it's not just the things that we already talked about there's also the electricity the telephone systems are down well they're saying is that we want to try and remake this island but also really make it better so that the next hurricane that comes along we're more prepared to deal with it or we're talking yesterday to the governor general is largely ceremonial
9:19 pm
position but he's quite linked in the in touch with the government he was talking about things like putting wise on the ground rather than rather an overground the posts here of really just come down so things like that that they can do in the future to make it so that people here are better off than they were before many thanks john john heilemann there with the very latest from the island of. the french president has been visiting french islands battered by hurricane. emmanuel macron was briefed by disaster seychelles on the island of guadalupe well. coordinated some people died in the french part of the island and on the nearby island of. the city. for those who live on the island there is anger because people are tired i understand this anger and i'm also going to smarten because of this to reassure people to show them full determination to console and also to listen to their anger because it is their it
9:20 pm
is normal and it's my role also to accept this. about ken fronts tens of thousands of people have taken part in nationwide protests against the president and his labor law with the manual says they're essential to energize the french economy but critics say they'll wipe out hard won protections for workers hope brennan has was at the demonstration in paris. france's unemployment is at almost ten percent and economic growth is stuck in the low but where these union members and the president disagree is on the solution to that the c.g. t. unit is one of france's largest representing huge numbers of public sector workers and low paid staff the president says his plans to make it easier for bosses to hire and fire will turn the page on three decades of inefficiency but these people are deeply concerned when we are walking that was. any time we can work
9:21 pm
for five years. you have to leave the job which. is impossible because we do we need. we are protesting mr micawber's label it's a battle against because. of what these union members see as important protections and global financial institutions such as the i.m.f. see as deep rooted structural rigidity it's france's complex employment laws and tax regimes often act as a disincentive for companies to expand present micron's proposals would for example allow companies with fewer than twenty staff to negotiate pay and conditions direct that the workers instead of having to involve the unions. jex pity's is a small but successful french surveying company which checks buildings for structural movement its boss agrees that more streamlined employment laws are over
9:22 pm
due as oprah is already a one of the problems on employers and employees want to talk to each other they want to decide their common future they no longer want one or two percent of the population telling them what we have to do and telling them that they know better what's best for them. the marches though are clear who they trust to do what's better for them a september showdown is looming here in france the president has described those who would oppose his plans i think either lazy or cynical or extremists but the unions who have mustered their forces out here on the streets of paris and elsewhere are determined they will oppose what they see as it did when you ation of their extensive powers a fringe group of around three hundred troublemakers started throwing project as a police responded with tear gas and water cannon rather the vast majority of the demonstrators were peaceful tensions are rising. the president is putting his political reputation on the line with these plans regardless of the protests he
9:23 pm
will sign the measure into law at the end of this month but at what cost to his standing in the country paul brennan al jazeera paris. to talk more about this we are joined now by from paris by funky chroma who's a partner at the political risk. open city thanks very much for joining us here on al-jazeera and dance just pick up on that point paul was making about not all the unions have been demonstrating how how sort of together really how unified is the opposition and particularly the union side of it again. and how much do you think they speak for the every day. so the unions this time weren't really organized and terms of having a unified position against this labor market reform what happened is that president mark raul talked to all of the unions and while he was in the process of designing this reform and made sure a majority of them were on board and as
9:24 pm
a result of that only the city as a reason the report actually decided to take it to the streets and to formally protest these labor market reforms and so as a result of that the your position in france hasn't really been very much united in terms of trade unions on the streets he talks about wanting to bring down unemployment which i think is at about ten percent do you get the impression these policies would do that because in the end surely that his reputation which is quite clear and low in the polls at the moment anyway how news on what happens if you get through. these reforms are the started off what needs to be done in france in order to address the labor market which has been incredibly rigid and unable to respond to economic shocks for example and so what he's doing right now is probably just not enough to all of a sudden make unemployment drop but it is the start of what needs to happen here in
9:25 pm
france and also we shouldn't forget that the ultimate impact of such reforms always takes at least twelve to eighteen months to really materialize and they will probably be in front of my mind goes down in france of the next years it will probably be as a result of a combined out of a combination of measures that the previous president actually already implemented and what mark home will do over the next six months how does what is this what generationally i think in the younger generation they're often talked about having portfolio careers they don't expect the same job with the same company throughout the whole career this kind of protectionism attitude of the unions in some respects sounds a bit old fashioned it is to the extent where the problem that we often have an especially here in france where we have a rigid labor market is it really protects the insiders so those people who are in the permanent position have
9:26 pm
a job and tend to be older and the dreamy doesn't allow the outsiders those who are not yet on the labor market to access the labor market and that is a problem and so flexible izing the labor market should benefit the youth and theory and this is something that the unions maybe don't look at it quite that way . thank you very much for sharing your thoughts from paris thank you. well it's less than two weeks now until the german election polls are giving christian democrats a big lead over rivals but the party is still likely to need a coalition partner to help form a government ability is the for a democrat is currently addressing a rally in hanover where dominic cain is for us so what do the free democrats actually stand for dominant. well they tell the people here in this hearing precisely that from the leader of the free democrats right now. behind me on the
9:27 pm
stage and people here hearing him talk about digital economy he says is crucial. to developing trying to bring prosperity to. the middle class also others in society who will benefit from what they called the. digitalisation of the market the point to make here is the reason he's appealing to so many is because four years ago his brassey suffered a terrible loss in the election with twenty. of parliament voted out of government he's trying to get his party on its feet into parliament and the people here we were expecting there to be about four or five hundred people they say there are perhaps twelve hundred people here all here. and if. they'd just part it's a sort of push over the line in the elections. maybe some compromises.
9:28 pm
but the point to make here is that the government in germany is pretty much always coalition. one party doesn't get the chance affectively to rule on it means they have to find a point here is the free democratic tradition in any sense for the center. of. this party for the democrats. in ideological terms of the sorts of policies that she wants that was a quote to put across to the people so you have this rather ironic situation the people in this whole want mr nutter to succeed he wants them to succeed but also i'm going to medical would want the liver to succeed because she did i would much prefer not to have another grand coalition this party might be the one. with the top put her into power and as i say do it in such a way question doesn't need to worry about what the left in german society is saying or thinking thanks dominic mccain my only german campaign child.
9:29 pm
still ahead this hour. long loss for a former ballerina and convicted of sheltering a rebel leader. is its latest phone the i phone six which can be unlocked using fake siding and how much will it cost. and install the asian champions league tie that almost could use one of the competitions most. hello and welcome back well start off with a chart for the levant and western parts of asia and every time i show this chart i say the same thing namely the temperatures across parts of southern iraq into kuwait and probably southern iran away above what they should be it's been
9:30 pm
a very long hot summer in this area and certainly for kuwait temperatures are going to remain very high as we head through into thursday thereafter i think would be a drop of about five degrees for the following few days and maybe that's a sign that summer is over run the eastern side of the mediterranean we're looking at fine conditions with thirty one there in beirut here in the arabian peninsula it is much as we'd expect with quite conditions around the gulf and therefore humid temperatures of forty dryer heat across the other side potentially forty five as a high in mecca so head on through into thursday a slight drop in temperatures to forty one but still fine heading into southern portions of africa we've got variable amounts of cloud affecting cape town but otherwise it should be dry of a much the region is looking pretty fine lots of sunshine when took there in the coming in the temperatures of thirty three degrees celsius for the north that's where all the rain is missing some significant shower close across so sudan the center of the republic and towards cameroon that's expected into the forecast lagos in nigeria could see one or two showers further west also seen some heavy rain in
9:31 pm

difficult. or not you know what happened to tell you they were deprived of their rights and they worked for a long time long hours and hard labor they had no rights at all and what we're trying to do is lessen the amount of suffering aid workers say programs like these also help ease trauma and act as a form of therapy. and elaborate on there are at least half a million syrian refugee children and to give you some idea of why there is so much concern about their futures according to the u.n. h.c.r. in the past school year less than half of those kids had enrolled in schools here. for the moment at least these youngsters are transported on this makeshift stage where dreams easier to obtain in this unofficial classroom where they hope an education will all right we have available and we can do it because even in the

phones and actually watching the upper vent as i've been doing all evening it feels like they're playing catch up with an awful lot the only thing that i think is new is the fact that the i watch will now has its own sim card in it so it's a standalone device now effectively so that is new but things like a while is charging for the new i phone eight that's not new facial recognition is not new it's kind of hard to get excited people watching this might be thinking why do they have to keep bringing new upgrades are going to possibly land in a landfill site i mean it's not very green very eco is no it's not many people tending to hold on to their mobile phones for longer this is one of the problems the mobile industry is facing now people are doing two year contracts maybe even getting to the end of it going to i really need a new phone i'm out front contract and i can just go see it you know simonyi so there's a real need to drive excitement the trouble is most of them have got very little new to bring to the table they're all quite nice sort of you know rounded a corner oblongs they do. mostly the same things so it's hard to be innovative
9:46 pm
there is talk of other areas you talk about the phone there's also talk about the speaker that you can talk to well we've had a thing from amazon is this the way forward you think if people are going you know what i've got the phone i need i don't need any more gizmos on what i'd like to see innovating next in phones is better security and better battery life because it's battery life also is partly holding back phone development you know and we saw that samsung run into trouble with battery development with the galaxy note seven last year they were trying to cram too big and powerful a battery into too small a case and this is what i think really holding things back you know i'd like to see better security when i met tricks publishers is an intern way of authenticating but the trouble is if you're biometrics a compromise it's gone forever you can't change of the print or your iris and thank you very much for coming in. so i had this news out in the way clinton opens up on last year's jim writes the us presidential election in a new memoir. in sport we hear from a file no doubt as he returns home off to winning the u.s.

9:49 pm
page memoir hillary clinton is candid about losing the presidency to donald trump i felt like i had let everybody down clinton blames herself for using a private e-mail account when she was secretary of state that led to a government investigation but she also questions former f.b.i. director james comey motivations for reopening the investigation less than two weeks before the election just stopped my momentum now remember this too jane at the same time he does that about a closed investigation there's an open investigation into the trump campaign and their connections with russia clinton's loss to donald trump was one of the most stunning in u.s. political history the veteran washington insider versus the brash outsider although she won the popular vote she lost the electoral vote primarily because for large swing states and three traditional democratic states voted for trump clinton's

critics say her failure to connect with working class voters is a lesson for the democratic party one of the main questions that democrats are asking themselves is how do we actually connect with with a huge part of the country that used to vote democratic and doesn't reliably do so anymore still some political scientists say clinton was a victim of bad timing so there is a reality that out of the six individuals who have run for a third term of their party only one of them has won so she had really thought about the odds the odds are more like that she had about a seventeen percent chance of actually succeeding president obama clinton's return to the spotlight is making some in her own party uneasy they fear her book could further alienate progressive democrats who favored vermont senator bernie sanders
