government has released its contingency plan in the event and leaves the without a deal the fact that minister outlined what he called practical advice of people and businesses law and reports from london. there was a time during the long saga of brics it's when prime minister to resign may used to say maybe his best move are no deal for britain is better than a bad deal for britain for i said on many occasions that no deal is better than a bad deal by which she meant that falling out of the european union without a trade deal was better than one which didn't reflect the referendum results but now it's becoming clear what no deal might look like and it's giving people the shivers food shortages if fresh produce rots at the border already stockpiling tins is actively being talked about what airports closed down heathrow has borrowed a billion dollars to protect itself against grounded flights would no deal mean economic collapse because businesses without taking the contingency plans take
money factures with close up shop it needs to be used to since the start to leave on mass the pound which tumbles we've never seen before with the government survived things like giant manufacturers shutting down and moving out does the government's even have a plan breakfasters those who want a clean break with the european union dismissed all of this is what they call project fear a deliberate attempt to undermine the democratic vote to leave the e.u. it will be absolutely foreign they say and indeed some argue that the little economic hardship is a price worth paying for the u.k. to regain its sovereignty and no deal breakfast would test that theory to destruction the first batch of advice from government calls on businesses to protect themselves from a new pile of red tape and bureaucracy that currently doesn't exist the nervous looking minister spent much time wiping the sweat from his top lip is of course in relation to those in the current. trading links with the e.u.
there will be some extra changes that they'll need to be advised of the sensible thing to do is to give practical advice and work with them to make that a success come with me. and together let's see. this sense of impending disaster the idea that politicians of fiddling while the u.k. burns has struck many is sufficiently surreal that it has a value this video comparing it to the titanic disaster perhaps the very best expression of people's worst fears anything could happen nothing can be ruled out. al-jazeera. there are plenty more ahead on the news hour including the israeli army launches a criminal investigation into the killing of two palestinian teenagers during protests near the gaza israel border. promised to struggle to hold on to his position malcolm turnbull faces another leadership vote and sport will tell you why
tiger woods has the chance to when line a million dollars from just want a round of golf. the united nations has urged latin american countries to ease entry for venezuelans fleeing a deepening economic crisis the u.n. is concerned about new passport and border patrols and ecuador and while in brazil the government is trying to move venezuelan migrants out of a border state after they kept was attacked by locals there is about reports from the border town of bor a vista. vision of inflow to shelter in the city. it's about three hours away from the border with venezuela is part of brazil's program to help the venezuelans arriving here. here two months ago soon after she delivered her baby boy. the biggest problem is finding food in venezuela
we had a house water and electricity but no food at least here i have a chance. at the shelter people are provided food to eat and a place to sleep. for a man that. has been here for four months his son luis has down syndrome millions of people came from latin america to venezuela when they escaped war and now look at us but it's not easy because when you go outside the brazilians look at us as if they want to kill you. the northern brazilian state of rhode island is one of the country's poorest and that's why the government is hoping to start moving people to other cities to ease the burden on this border state and the venezuelan for coming to brazil are not only living inside shelters but also on the streets all around the city there's entire families waiting to be allowed inside the shelters families here say that their children are getting sick while they wait. for three weeks this
children have been sleeping on the street they're tired hungry and some of them. as she has been told there is no space inside and. they say there is no space. for rinks under there. which is the pressure jeff wilkinson of the u.n. refugee program says the situation is challenging with a priority shifting to help the new arrivals to quickly move on to other brazilian cities and that they are now looking at how to. make the process. more agile to identify and new locations and to negotiate. to push this because at the end of the day i think everyone realizes that. i mean that really is the priority and that takes the pressure off. in spite of the difficulties they face in brazil
hundreds of venezuelans continue to cross the border every day escaping an economic crisis and willing to risk it all in search of a better life. well let's get more on this now we're joined by phil gunson he's senior analyst covering the andes region at the international crisis group and he's joining us live from very good to have you with us on al-jazeera mr gunson so an absolutely terrible situation that we've been covering for venice my venezuelan migrant some who are you know living on the streets of brazil waiting for a place in shelters when what needs to happen to remedy this now. really. a limit change of government but the government is like you know with. the billions of venezuelans facing that and the latest package of economic measures and then we're going to make things worse now right or serious measures but economists
say will make the hyperinflation that we're already very very. good at giving it. a bit of a spiral. maybe be able to survive. so while there was no hope for the situation improving in venezuela what about the reaction from neighboring countries you know ecuador is no longer aps accepting national ideas from venezuelans trying to enter asking them for passports instead when many don't have them through this planning to do the same what is this going to mean you know for venezuelans for colombia which these migrants are trying to cross from and that already has a million venezuelan my friends. yeah the situation regionally is becoming manageable and the only way to deal with it really is by some kind of multilateral agreement involving all the countries that are affected and also u.n. agencies u.n. agencies are already on the ground in border. helping to sort out the situation
much much more meat the result is. that the structure structure the put in place to do you. need to be the strength of this is a crisis which is running to be a really big and seven. how far away i mean you know from having that sort of a multilateral agreement and strategy for how to deal with what is the biggest humanitarian crisis that south america has seen in a very long time. well things are starting to move countries are getting together they're discussing them in ecuador for example by nationalists talking to colombia about what to do with that problem go to ecuador hosted or if i was doing i think a beating of a number. i think everybody would realize.
that it's actually a very. good solution here in minnesota right now not to be speculated on my wife with a gun from me thank you very much for your time on the set of the international crisis group so gunson joining us live from caucus thank you. now to south africa where the president says he totally rejects donald trump's claims on plant land reform and an allegation of the large scale killing of white farmers the us president has announced that he'll get his secretary of state to investigate reforms in south africa he tweeted that mike pompei would closely study the south african land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large scale killing of farmers tribes twitted followed a segment on fox news that said south african government is nasties in land from white farmers. well the south african government is insisting that land reform will go ahead after gaining consensus from all major parties the ruling african national
congress wants to change the constitution to allow the expropriation of land without compensation seventy two percent of the land is in the hands of white farmers while the white south africans form just eight percent of the population the killing of farmers is at a twenty year low forty seven were killed last year compared to one hundred fifty three in one nine hundred ninety eight well let's get more on this now we're joined by correspondent farmer the village she's live for us and bella bella and south africa's poor poor province a very strong reaction in south africa. from not just the government but you know online turn. in opposition parties like the if not welcome the state was asking who she is in terms of his position and wanting to intervene in what's happening in south africa the government there were also saying that it strongly rejects these statements it's also called food. but they have said they will pursue diplomatic channels to
deal with the u.s. president this point. at the land summit as you mentioned genuine vocal with this issue of language creation without payment is being discussed of course a very emotive and since it of one in south africa but to give us an idea of the sentiment you are speaking to under these cries from say enemies the issue of land expropriation is a debate that's continuing in south africa. some we've spoken to have said that they don't think it is the ideal scenario do you think it's a workable solution in terms of land redistribution a lot of this because you do have the. land question much much broader than just the express reaction without compensation one of the present is that we have a review committee. actually i was going the wrong question to the wrong people so yes language land divided trees gritty core we must have that to buy in some
everywhere we must find solutions for every missed find growing quickly but we don't think that the solution lies in expression of it of compensation relations a lot of violent things that there's a lot of really beautiful examples listed at the summit of models that will not and never actually going to me that will not damage the production of food security and that's the. war of rather than. action without government action at least it's a pretty president of south africa's president reassuring farmers that they wouldn't be like crabs and that they would want to deal with this in the best way possible do you see government doing that in a balanced way that does a piece on this look i think this is a very difficult to buy also with the government within government but we welcome the reassurances that were given by the deputy president this morning you also might it's very clear that the government recognizes the importance of the
agricultural sacred and its contribution to the economy but to the economy and to food security. you know we would like to think from what what he said that productive agricultural land is not primarily for expropriation of the speculation without compensation anneliese be they from agra say thank you for your time or another slant summit will go on for another day and farmers here say they has to be away for government to look at their needs and as the government is also say that it wouldn't affect to production and the other cultural sector as a whole but of course these tweets coming of from the us president donald trump as of course further ignited this debate and some would argue possibly aggravated a very difficult situation in south africa elizabeth father thank you very much for that fanaticism of the. live from better. piper thank you. but it's time for the weather now here's kevin that's right we're going to talk about hurricane lane a very rare occurrence as close as the storm is getting to hawaii i want to show
you what we're expecting to see it was a category four or five storm at one time right now it's dropped down to a category four storm but take a look at how people are reacting to the storm on the island we are either enjoying the waves right here as you can see this one surfer is doing or we are preparing for the storm as many people are because this storm is going to be getting very very close to the hawaiian islands now only two hurricanes in recorded history have ever made landfall in hawaii this storm a category four right now with winds of two hundred fifty miles per hour does not look it is like it is going to be making landfall but it is going to get in close enough proximity to the hawaiian islands that right now we do have hurricane warnings and watches in effect for all of the hawaiian islands as well as flash flood warnings that flash flood watches as well in this area now the track of the storm is going to keep the hawaiian islands on the right hand side of the storm that is always the worst part of the storm with a lot of rain some locations are expecting well over five hundred millimeters of
rain some local areas could even see over seven hundred millimeters of rain so that is why the flash flooding is going to be a definite factor we are going to be watching over the next few days so more on this as we go through the weekend but very strong winds and surf with this storm. thank you very much kevin still ahead all the news out disillusionment and many who took part in the literacy campaign in the nineteen eighties so this sacrifices were in vain the un warns of a third wave of the cholera epidemic and war ravaged yemen and the sport spain's top footballers threaten strike action and a sponsor their league's deal for the us. desperate for a better life millions of people have sought refuge in europe sometimes their dreams of sanctuary are realized but sometimes disenchantment and hostility drives

a third wave of the cholera epidemic. is already the largest on record and the numbers could rise two thousand three hundred deaths and more than one point one million suspected cases have been recorded since april last year humanitarian partners are responding to avoid large scale resurgence this month or partners of vaccinated more than three hundred eighty five thousand people against cholera in the high risk districts of data in it where humanitarian colleagues are also disturbed by damage to health and water sanitation hygiene infrastructure due to the conflict access to the services is crucial to prevent another color epidemic all parties to the conflict must meet their obligations under international humanitarian law to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure correspondent allan fisher is joining us for more he's live in neighboring djibouti and the u.n. really warning of how much worse things could get and outlining that how
much their efforts are being hampered by the wall. exactly and certainly we know that the united nations immediately says have been warning since the start of august that there is the danger of a tipping point where yemen goes into its third caller epidemic we've already had two to this point as you see one point one million cases reported two thousand three hundred people killed there certainly has been a vaccination program underway we've certainly seen that just in the last month three hundred eighty five thousand people have been vaccinated that to the more than a quarter of a million people in the southern port city of aden who received vaccinations earlier this year the idiot in seas are doing what they can but cholera is caused by people drinking infected water and also eating infected food and the reality is that the infrastructure in yemen has been severely damaged by the more than three year war of the and despite the efforts of the agencies to try and get
infrastructure up and running to try and bring clean water to many people they simply can't manage to deal with the extent of the damage that is there the number of people that are impacted by this and therefore cholera added to the conflict is causing real problems for the united nations and also for the aid agencies and that is why they're putting this stark warning saying look you really have to do something about this because it's simply not getting any better and doing nothing is no longer an option alan thank you very much for that for now that is alan session live in djibouti thank you saudi arabia has denied a report that it's calling us plans to sell shares in a state or a company iran cause this news agency any quoted saying it's also saying the flight had been canceled these energy minister insisted it would happen when the time is right the plan to sell five percent of the company could bring in billions of dollars. israel has approved plans to build more than a thousand new illegal settlement homes in the occupied west bank that the latest

others loved life too when he heard about the protest he decided to go and see that he went peacefully do you really snipers fire on protesters like their turkeys it's like they're playing a video game israel thinks that when the old died the young will forget their rights but they don't need the international community to help us in order to get our rights they must help us have a homeland like everyone else. this is one of the places along the border fence where protests have been held every friday since the end of each one hundred sixty seven palestinians have been killed in those protests and there is clear video evidence that he was shot in the head last trying to help a fellow protest. this is running to help a man carrying a child which the protesters set fire to this kicked up by bullets hitting the ground around the street
a short range and i'm not be released to the ground in the ambulance. to get paid to squeal. in july the israeli army announced that an internal military investigation into the deaths of one hundred fifty three protesters was expected to find that none of the shootings violated open file orders instead it called the incidents mishaps. the conclusions of that investigation i'm now with the israeli military advocate general who can order further investigations if he sees fit. gaza based human rights organization say an independent international investigation is needed. our experience is that all is ready investigations that done to try to preempt all work before we send our findings to the u.n. in geneva what's needed is a thorough unbiased look what happened. the united nations voted to send an
investigation team into gaza in may and it was to produce its findings by march next year. but there's no indication when the team will start work and israel has a long history of not cooperating with un rights inquiries or allowing access to gaza. the un resolution condemned what it described as the disproportionate and indiscriminate use of force by the israeli occupied against palestinian civilians israel responded by saying it was being demonized. says his son was shot for demanding a better future for millions of young palestinians like him. he doubts anyone in the israeli me will be punished for killing him. zero gaza. india where floodwaters are receding in the state of carolina which is worst flooding in a century more than a million people are in temporary. homes washed away there's been no rain for the
past four days areas remain. more than two hundred people. setting off the devastating floods. the rise in the official number of dead is not because people are dying now it's because bodies are being found of those who died at the end of last week and over the weekend as the floodwaters recede and people are clearing out the mud bodies of in some cases within it a political argument is now going on india as well between the state government in kerala and the national government in delhi delhi has turned down the financial assistance of countries predominantly in the middle east where many people from carola work and all the hundred million u.s. dollars worth has been offered but politely refused by delhi carola is saying in that case delhi needs to make up the shortfall and so far there's no direct sign of that there's also a blame game going on who was to blame for these floods was it just the torrential
rain unavoidable or was it years of environmental mismanagement allowing people to build too close to rivers and too much pollution in those rivers as well didn't help many a saying plastic bottle for those sorts of things clogging up after east i mean the water had nowhere to go when that huge amount of rain came down and finally there was the argument about management of dams and reservoirs when the two wrench runs began many of the reservoirs in kara were already near capacity people are saying water should have been released much earlier but in smaller quantities rather than waiting until they were about to burst their banks and then letting all that water go out once they're saying this was a disaster that could have been prevented. to australia now where promised a malcolm turnbull is clinging on to power on the eve of another potential vote on his leadership parliament has been suspended as politicians and his party consider challenging him for the top job on friday challenge that us reports. malcolm

well donald trump's former lawyer says he'll assess the special investigation into possible russian meddling in the twenty sixteen election michael cohen pleaded guilty to breaking campaign finance laws on tuesday saying trump directed him to pay two porn stars who had affairs with him the president insists he's done nothing wrong and is accusing cohen of lying and agalloch of reports from washington d.c. . he wants city take a bullet to donald trump now michael cohen is offering to help an investigation the president has repeatedly called a witch hunt on tuesday don't trump's long time lawyer and fixer pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations cohen told the court he was directed by trump to make payments to two women he's alleged to have had affairs with cohen's lawyer says the fifty one year old is now more than happy to help special counsel robert muller's investigation into alleged collusion between the trump campaign and russia my observation is that michael cohen knows information that would be of interest
to the special counsel in my opinion regarding both knowledge about a conspiracy to corrupt american democracy by the russians robert maas investigation centers on a meeting between campaign aides in a russian delegation that promised to dish political dirt on hillary clinton cohen's lawyer has indicated his client has direct knowledge of the meeting with claims donald trump knew it was happening something the president denied of the president knew about it and there is other evidence in addition to michael cohen just basically saying it on his own then the president at this point could be one his way on a very fast pace to impeachment but the first press briefing since cohen's appearance in court so how could the sunda says the president has nothing to hide as the president has stated on numerous occasions he did nothing wrong there are no charges against him and this just because michael cohen made a plea deal doesn't mean that implicates the president on. on the same day cohen
pled guilty in new york the president's former campaign manager paul manifold was found guilty on eight charges of tax and bank fraud both cases sprang from a list team leading one republican to say it's proof miller's investigation is anything but a witch hunt democrats say trump's legal woes a far from over to take a step back president trump's campaign manager was convicted of federal crimes president trump's personal attorney pled guilty to federal crimes president trump's first national security advisor pled guilty to federal crimes a foreign policy adviser to his campaign pled guilty to federal crimes and more trials are coming these two cases may now be the biggest threat to donald trump's presidency cohen's lawyer says his client is now liberated to speak truth to power and there are unconfirmed reports cohen has tapes from space will remain loyal but with november's midterm elections approaching the stakes have never been higher and he gallagher al-jazeera at the white house. a family member before metron campaign
advisor and his have been event of a ten elections could be make or break for trump in terms of whether or not that this whether or not this is an actual violation remember michael cohn split guilty to eight charges yesterday six of them involved his personal finances tax fraud bank loan fraud and and so i than other financial impropriety then he pled guilty to two separate ones this issue is fine and if it's a crime it's a crime but ultimately it goes to the political argument of whether or not the president should be impeached and i don't think that this is an impeachable offense one way or the other ultimately we're going to find out where this goes on this midterm you know this midterm is steve bannon has said is essentially donald trump's first reelect because if the president if excuse me if the republicans lose their majority in the house and the democrats control the house and you have a speaker.
